Scheduled to debut during Ding Darling Days at the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge in October, Americas Darling will share the incredible history of Darling (1876-1962), the Des Moines Register editorial cartoonist who influenced readers through his syndicated cartoons, creating awareness of urgent environmental issues and the need to preserve Americas natural landscapes. During the three years he has spent working on the film, producer Sam Koltinsky travelled across the country from Florida and West Virginia to Michigan, Washington, DC and Iowa gathering valuable biographical information and poring through documents, cartoons and other archived Darling treasures. This spring, Koltinsky and his Marvo Entertainment Group team spent more than a month in Southwest Florida, filming several segments to be included in the 60-minute documentary at BIG ARTS, the refuge and at Darlings former winter retreat the Fish House, built in 1942 on Captiva. But since then, work on Americas Darling hasnt begun to slow down. I left Sanibel and Captiva and went almost directly to Des Moines, Koltinsky said last week. We were able to visit Darlings former home, capture a number of interviews related to Dings time in Iowa as well as to secure Iowas portion of our projects funding continued on page 28 Looking at the original printers plate of Jay Norwood Ding Darlings last editorial cartoon are, from left, documentary producer Sam Koltinsky, Chris Steffen and Jefferson JonesHave A Disco Ball At Sanibel Night Prom by Jeff LysiakIslanders are getting ready to put on their boogie shoes as the Sanibel Night Prom scheduled to take place on Saturday, September 8 at The Dunes Golf & Tennis Club promises an evening of disco dancing, fabulous food and flashbacks to the 1970s.

Burrs illustrious career as a movie star and television actor includes such memorable titles as the 1956 science fiction release Godzilla and the classic Alfred Hitchcock film Rear Window; his television career includes such longrunning TV hits as Perry Mason and Ironside. He also loved the isolated South Seas Islands and, in 1965, purchased Naitamba Island in Fiji. There, he and his partner, Robert Benevides, collected shells as a relaxing hobby. Benevides recently donated a hat, cane and pocket square from his collection of memorabilia from Burrs days as Perry Mason. He also included continued on page 3 The Raymond Burr exhibit

The Zonta Club of Sanibel/Captiva, ZI District 11, The Human Trafficking Awareness Partnership, Inc. (HTAP) and Southwest Florida Addiction Services are working with Save Our Adolescents from Prostitution (SOAP) to rescue young people, mostly girls, who have been trafficked into the sex trade. The SOAP project delivers the small soaps labeled with the National Trafficking Hotline free to hotels near events that draw large numbers of men. Sporting events like the Super Bowl and The Indy 500, and large national conventions are among those targeted by SOAP. On August 10 and 11, several hundred volunteers from Southwest Florida nonprofits that work on human trafficking issues, met in Tampa to label and distribute 50,000 bars of soap to 167 area budget motels as well as luxury hotels near next weeks National Republican Convention. Overall, 207 hotels and their employees received not only soap but also educational materials to help them identify human trafficking victims and missing children. At least two missing children were identified, according to event organizers. Volunteers from Southwest Florida Zonta clubs, including Sanibel and Captiva, attended the event. Island Zontian and HTAP Director Nola Theiss gave a presentation about human trafficking to volunteers in Tampa. She also delivered 1,000 bars of soap, which were labeled in June by residents of the Transitional Living Center at Southwest Florida Addiction Services, one of Zontas local service partners. Residents there also heard Theiss speak about human trafficking. It is frequently the case that young girls are bused in by their traffickers into areas where large events are being held to service the men who attend them, according to human trafficking experts. Traffickers advertise the girls as escorts in print publications and Internet sites like backpage.com. They are housed in inexpensive motels where they are watched around the clock and often the only privacy they have is in the bathroom. It is the latter fact that gave Theresa Flores, the founder of SOAP and a trafficking victim herself, the idea for the project. Forced into prostitution as a teenager, Flores experience mirrored that encountered by young victims of this crime today. Flores recalled the worst night of her life where as a teen she was taken to a Detroit area motel where she was auctioned off to dozens of men. She said the one item that continued on page 44 Theresa Flores giving instructions at SOAP A volunteer assists with the SOAP project


ISLAND SUN AUGUST 24, 20128 Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellGetting the ball rolling at an early age score one for the home team of the Sanbel Youth Soccer League. League president Craig Holston (The Sanibel-Captiva Trust Companys Senior Vice President/ Senior Portfolio Manager) came to Rotary last week to give the club an overview of the islands youth soccer league. The Sanibel Youth Soccer League is for children who live on Sanibel and Captiva or whose parents work on the islands. Annually, around 200 boys and girls play Sanibel soccer (ages 4 to 14), making it one of the most popular youth activities on the islands, he said. As a recreational league, they have no tryout camps or powerhouse teams, and coaches dont make winning a priority. Instead, the focus is on giving kids of any skill level maximum participation in the game. Every child gets to play at least one half of every game. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club invited Holston to visit because we were interested in becoming sponsors of one of the youth soccer teams this season. All of the coaches participating in this league are volunteers. League players are charged a nominal fee of $96 per player, which offsets the costs of the uniform jerseys, shorts and socks, insurance, an end-of-season tournament and referees. Need scholarships are made available to a number of children through individual giving and sponsorship opportunities ($250 team sponsorships) available through the Sanibel Youth Soccer League. Occasionally, monies are also made available for trained coaches to run instructional soccer workshops on the island. Youth soccer programs provide a constructive way for kids to have fun, get needed exercise, acquire social skills, build character, learn teamwork, develop skills, learn good sportsmanship and boost selfesteem. Running up and down the field increases muscle and bone strength, along with flexibility and endurance. This is only the beginning for our kids in an exciting sport played around the globe. Some might even call it the only sport played round-the-world available to everyone. Rotary International has recognized the importance of soccer in the lives of many around the globe and decided to use the 2010 World Cup of Soccer Championship held in Africa as an effective way to gain attention for its Kick Polio Out Of Africa campaign. Bill and Melinda Gates (of The Gates Foundation, which has pledged over $200 million to Rotary Polio Plus) kicked off this campaign and signed a soccer ball that made its way through the African continent, picking up important dignitary signature supporting the campaign. The ball traveled through a number of polio-affected countries in Africa, raising awareness of the eradication effort in many nations. Its arrival coincided with immunization activities in Africa, and Rotarians celebrated by holding public rallies and inviting government officials. The soccer ball then continued traveling throughout the world for four months, gaining attention for the Kicking Polio Out Of Africa and adding the signatures of government officials and VIPs in addition to virtual signatures of support via the Internet. A grand campaign finale was held in Alexandria, Egypt. The 2010 Africa Cup of Nations champions kicked the ball, symbolically kicking polio out of the continent to the 2010 Rotary International Convention in Montreal, Canada. The connection here is soccer is played worldwide, and Rotary International is a worldwide service organization. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club is becoming a sponsor of the Sanibel Youth Soccer League and hopes you will join us by becoming a sponsor yourself. If you have an interest in becoming a sponsor this season, contact Craig Holston soon at cholston@ sancaptrustco.com. Soccer season is right around the corner. If you have any questions about Rotary, ask any of our Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club Officers and Community Neighbors: President, John Grey; President-elect, Scot Congress; Vice President, Bill Rahe; Secretary, Adair Heath, Treasurer, John Danner; Past President, Joel Ospa; and Membership Chair, Janet Strickland. Or just stop by for breakfast one Friday morning and find out what Rotary is all about. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets at 7 a.m. every Friday at Bistro At Beachview, 1100 Par View Drive.

9 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 24, 2012A Fish As Big As A Refrigeratorsubmitted by Jenna SullivanPicture the refrigerator at your house. Now, picture a fish the size of that refrigerator. Give it a large mouth, a rounded tail fin, dark coloring with faint vertical stripes and darker spots. You are picturing an Atlantic goliath grouper, the focal point of last weeks camp at Sanibel Sea School. Goliath groupers are one of our favorite species of fish. Bigger doesnt always mean better, but these fish are impressively colossal... we mean HUGE! An adult can be 8.2 feet long and up to 800 pounds. We began to get an idea of what these dimensions really mean when we built two adult-sized goliath grouper sculptures in the sand at Bowmans Beach. We spent the whole day at the beach that day, and kept coming back to the sand sculpture periodically. It was a lot of sand to move. We also tested the benefits of being big in a counselors vs. campers game of tug-of-war, which ended poorly for the counselors. It turns out that sometimes, bigger does not mean better. To really understand these groupers, campers needed to get an idea of what life is like for these fish before they become goliath. Some campers were surprised to find out that we would be collecting and examining plankton under the microscope during Goliath Grouper Week. After all, what could be further removed from a huge grouper than plankton? However, goliath groupers begin their lives as tiny, pelagic larvae that float on currents to near-shore mangal ecosystems. There, they become juveniles and spend the next four to six years eating and growing, sheltered in the mangrove nurseries. We also learned about mangrove trees and snorkeled through a mangal forest, coming across many juvenile fish and invertebrates that depend on the mangrove structures for habitat. We seined and cast-netted near shore and got a closer look at many juvenile fish species. Adult goliath groupers also like to hang out in structured habitat, such as under reefs, ledges and shipwrecks. We canoed out into the San Carlos Bay, pausing under the causeway bridge and picturing the adult goliath groupers that hang out in the deep water near the pilings like trolls. We played a game that helped us understand how goliath groupers hollow out depressions in the sand that can provide important structure for other fish species. Of course, we surfed our hearts out, probably spending more energy in an afternoon than a goliath grouper does in a month, sitting under a ledge and waiting to suck in prey fish in one giant gulp. As many of you know, goliath groupers are in trouble because of humans. They are now recognized as a Critically Endangered Species. Mangrove habitat, so important to juvenile fish of many species, is being lost. Goliath groupers were overfished almost to the brink of extinction. Though they are slow growing giants with a low reproductive rate, goliath grouper populations are ever-soslowly beginning to recover.

It was a great chance for new families to get acquainted with the other parents and children of CECI. The kids ate pizza and played on the playground while the parents and staff socialized and learned more about the school. CECI is in its 38th year and was founded by parents on the islands. It is a parent co-op and relies on its families to volunteer and make the school the shining star that it is. CECI offers after school programs that include sign language, nature and science, music and movement, arts and crafts and cooking. CECI has classes for 2s, 3s and Pre-K 4-year-olds. Contact the school at 472-4538 if you are interested in enrolling your little one. Director Jana Yates and teacher Ms. Lu share a laugh at the CECI open house THOMAS J. WICKESBERGThomas J.

The FWC is taking these actions to encourage more Floridians and visitors to harvest lionfish. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission hopes that by increasing the opportunity for people to harvest invasive lionfish, we can limit the impact this nonnative invasive species has on Floridas marine fish and wildlife, said Jessica McCawley, director of the FWCs Division of Marine Fisheries Management. We also want to express our gratitude to everyone, especially divers, who already go out on a regular basis to harvest lionfish. The changes, enacted by an executive order, apply only through August 2013. They are: A recreational fishing license is not required to target lionfish while using a pole spear, a Hawaiian sling (picture included in photo set), a handheld net or any spearing device that is specifically designed and marketed exclusively for lionfish. There is no recreational or commercial harvest bag limit for lionfish. The changes do not allow spearing in areas where spearfishing is prohibited and apply to state waters only, which is from shore to nine miles in Gulf of Mexico waters and from shore to three miles in Atlantic waters. Lionfish are a non-native invasive species that threatens Floridas saltwater fish and wildlife. They prey on native fish and wildlife and can reduce native populations. Lionfish also compete for food with native predatory fish such as grouper and snapper. The FWC encourages people to remove lionfish in Florida waters to limit negative impacts to native fish and wildlife. Lionfish have venomous spines, so the FWC urges careful handling. Unless a person is allergic to the venom, lionfish stings are rarely fatal. Anyone getting stung should immerse the wound in hot (not scalding) water or apply heat to the affected area for 30 to 90 minutes to help break down the toxin. Also, seek medical attention as soon as possible. Spearfishers should also take care not to damage the important reef habitat where lionfish often are found. More information regarding lionfish is available at www.MyFWC.com/Fishing and clicking on Saltwater Fishing, Recreational Regulations, then Lionfish. To view the executive order, visit www.MyFWC.com/About and click on Executive Director then Executive Orders.

13 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 24, 2012 DDWS Welcomes Two Shared Interns At RefugeThe two newest interns to join the Ding Darling Wildlife SocietyFriends of the Refuge believe that fate has a way of working in mysterious ways. Jess Shelton and Karen Lopresti both attended Hanover College in southern Indiana. While studying there, they met Hanover alum Birgie Vertesch, DDWS executive director, who was attending a class reunion and struck up a conversation with the girls. We were unclear of what direction we would go after graduation, until Birgie came along, said Shelton, who was majoring in economics. We were ready for an adventure that would allow us to explore our interests while also preparing us for the job market, said Lopresti, a communication major. I was impressed by their energy and interest in our work supporting the refuges education and conservation efforts, said Vertesch, who offered them a yearlong internship to work with both DDWS and refuge staff after they graduated this spring. Lopresti, a Richmond, Indiana native, has always had an interest in the work of non-profit organizations. I have never been sure about what I wanted to do with my life, but working with a non-profit has always been in the forefront of my mind, she said. Seeing the whole picture of how a non-profit operates through this internship is simply ideal. I am blown away by the beauty of Sanibel and the JN Ding Darling refuge and society as a whole. Shelton hails from Cincinnati, Ohio, but refers to Sanibel as her home away from home. My family has been coming here for years and Ding Darling has always been part of our family tradition, she said. Knowing how amazing this place is, I didnt think twice about applying for an internship position.. The interns arrived on August 13, and are already involved in many projects including Octobers Ding Darling Days. Later this month they will be attending a social media conference in Fort Myers that will aid in promoting the refuge through social media networks. Lopresti and Shelton are the first to intern for the both the refuge and society aspects of Ding Darling. The refuge and society work together for a common goal, so it makes perfect sense, said Supervisory Refuge Ranger Toni Westland. Hopefully these ladies will be the first of many interns to have the opportunity to work in both of these vital areas of the Ding Darling effort.

Shell Point Academy Offers Hurricane ClassShell Points Academy of Lifelong Learning invites the public to attend a class presented by Kristie Anders about hurricanes in Southwest Florida on Tuesday, September 18 at 10 a.m. This free presentation will take place in the Grand Cypress Room at The Woodlands in Shell Point Retirement Community. However, space is limited, so reservations are required to attend. Anders, education director for the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation, experienced her first hurricane at age 6, and that was the first of many hurricanes and tropical storms that this island dwelling educator has lived through. In addition to her personal experiences, she will share the scientific information that will help us better understand this phenomenon. As Floridians, we are lucky to enjoy a tropical paradise for most of the year, but we do have to be prepared for when occasionally the weather chooses to create a storm, said Teri Kollath, manager of Academy and Volunteer Services. Ms. Anders speaks in our Academy quite regularly, and she offers guests a great insight into many aspects of life in Southwest Florida. To reserve space for Anders presentation, call 489-8472. The Academy of Life Long Learning at Shell Point is an educational initiative for the residents of the retirement community. The Academy provides anywhere from 70 to 90 classes each semester that encompass a well-rounded curriculum of educational opportunities for senior adults.

17 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 24, 2012 CROW Launches Summer Campaign The Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife announced the launch of a summer campaign to raise funds for the rescue and rehabilitation of our sick, injured and orphaned native wildlife. CROW president John Schubert is confident that CROW can continue to provide the level of care needed to survive this busy season. For over 40 years, CROW has survived thanks to the hard work, dedication and commitment of the special people who provide care for our patients. But we have also survived thanks to the passion and generous donations from our supporters who believe strongly in what we do every day of the year to save wildlife, said Schubert. As we have in past summers, we are reaching out to our members, supporters and everyone in our community to help us by providing the extra resources we need to get through this busy summer season. Everyone at CROW would like to say thank you for helping us give wildlife a voice in the world and for helping us teach people to care for and care about our wildlife friends and neighbors. Yes, I would like to support CROW and its efforts to treat these summer patients.Enclosed is my check, made payable to CROW. Mail to PO Box 150, Sanibel, FL 33957.

They rarely fly far from the shore, preferring inlets, bays and large rivers. Despite spending much time in the water, they do not possess the waterproofing oil of other seabirds (enabling them to dive very deeply for fish) and spend much time drying their feathers, standing ashore or on pilings. A downed Florida cormorant (Phalacrocorax auritus floridanu) arrived at CROW earlier this month, likely suffering from Brevetoxin, or BTX. The respiratory illness is caused by ingesting the algae responsible for red tide. Due to its weakened condition, it spent too much time on its feet causing a common condition known as bumble foot. Abscesses form on the bottom of a stricken birds webbed feet, which are hard like calluses and inhibit its ability to swim properly. The patient was very thin and lethargic. Dr. Heather Barron, hospital director, immediately ordered injections of subcutaneous fluids, an electrolyte solution that can be given to animals for hydration. Since it may be a Brevetoxin case, these birds can have kidney issues, so we want to make sure that we are supporting its kidneys with plenty of fluids, stated Dr. Diane Bean. The cormorant is also receiving fish with extra oil to maintain its caloric intake, as avians can lose weight very quickly in captivity. Jeana Harms, certified veterinarian technician, uses a surgical scrub consisting of a detergent and an antiseptic antibacterial agent solution to clean the wounds. Once they are thoroughly cleaned, a topical antibiotic called silver sulfadiazine is applied. The treatment must be administered often and with great care, as irreversible damage can occur. It will take several weeks of intensive care before this cormorant is well enough to be considered for release. If you do not have the time to spare to volunteer, consider sponsoring CROWs patients, as they do not have health insurance to cover their bills. You may specify that your donation to be used to help specific patients or species. Go to CROWs website for more information. CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Inc.) is a non-profit wildlife hospital providing veterinary care for native and migratory wildlife from our local area. The hospital accepts patients seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mail donations to P.O. Box 150, Sanibel, FL 33957. Call 472-3644 or visit www.crowclinic.org for more information.

Yes, we did get wet a few times but, generally, if you paid attention to the movement of the small, fast moving rainstorms you could stay dry and keep a rod bent. Close to home in the southern sound, the fishing action was very consistent on redfish and trout most of the week. Big high tides made for a longer than usual fourto five-hour window for catching redfish up to 28 inches up under the mangroves. Out on the flats, trout up to 22 inches were caught while working the eastern side of the sound targeting sand potholes in the threeto four-foot range with a small pinfish or grunt on a popping cork rig. Most days I would start off out on the flats catching trout until the tide got high enough then switch over to mangrove fishing to target the redfish. When you mention grouper and snapper fishing, most clients automatically think of going offshore. The next few months are prime time to catch gag grouper and mangrove snapper in and around the passes. Captiva Pass and Boca Grande Pass hold lots of keeper size quality fish for the next month or two. August and September will offer some of the best inshore mangrove snapper fishing of the year. These great tasting fish will be in good numbers in the passes and will commonly get up to the 15to 16-inch range. Mangrove snapper have very good eyesight so I use a light 15# or 20# test fluorocarbon leader and a small 1/0 light wire circle hook. Most of the time I run a 30# test leader, but when targeting these snapper, the lighter the better. Its amazing how many more bites you will get just by lightening up the rig. Use as little weight on the rig as you can to get the bait to the bottom, generally a #2 split shot will do it unless the tide is running really hard. Bait for these mangrove snapper needs to be on the small side too. Live shiners are hard to beat but live shrimp and small pinfish will work too when the bite is on. Places in the passes to catch mangrove snapper include the deeper docks along with the deeper holes, rocky bottom and ledges. Drift fishing is the way to go when in the pass; pay close attention to your depth finder, always looking for rocky, broken bottom. Once you catch a couple, put a mark on the GPS and make the same drift. Once you locate them its one after another. Often the better bite comes during periods of slower tide movement. While drifting for snapper in the pass you will also catch both red and gag grouper. Ive yet to catch a keeper sized red grouper in the passes but commonly catch keeper size gags. If you want to target keeper sized gag grouper in the passes, a much heavier rig is required to get the job done. I like a heavy jigging style spinning rod rigged with 65-pound braid. I then either go with a large pinfish on a knocker rig or a butterfly jig. Just recently I have started using the butterfly jigs in the passes and the results are impressive. The jigs, when fished vertically, rarely hang on the bottom, unlike the live bait rig, and they catch fish after fish. Let the jig fall to the bottom and simply jig it up about five feet before letting it fall back to the bottom. Hold on though, because the majority of the bites come while the jig is falling. Most of the gag grouper caught in the passes will be on the small side of the 22-inch minimum size limit. Learning where the good bottom is and using big baits will increase your odds of a fresh grouper dinner without having to make a long, expensive run offshore. There are plenty of keeper-size grouper in these passes with even some real monsters around 20 pounds that I see caught every year. Gag grouper are a hard-hitting fish and a battle is usually decided within the first five to 10 feet. Getting a big gag up and away from the rocky structure quickly is the key to landing one. This is full contact fishing, so bring your A game and a stout rod.Capt. Matt Mitchell has been fishing local waters since he moved to Sanibel in 1980.

19 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 24, 2012 Plant SmartCypressvineby Gerri ReavesCypressvine (Ipomoea quamoclit) is a smooth-stemmed twining vine of the morning glory family. This fast-growing annual is a native of tropical America and can reach 16 feet or more. Delicate leaves sprinkled with star-like flowers make a pretty lacey trellis plant or groundcover. Its bright flowers are sought by hummingbirds and butterflies. The tubular scarlet flowers bloom throughout most of the year. Flowers of one to two inches across appear on long slender stalks. Flowers are occasionally white. The feathery and threadlike leaves resemble those of the bald cypress, thus the common name. Leaves are one to four inches long, with each segment measuring only about a millimeter wide. Cypressvine produces a rounded green seed capsule that matures to brown. The plant is easy to cultivate, so its good for beginner gardeners. In fact, it will readily selfsow. Fortunately, it is non-invasive. Although drought-tolerant, it does best in well-drained soil, plenty of moisture, and full sun to partial shade. Sources: Wildflowers of Florida Field Guide by Jaret C. Daniels and Stan Tekiela, The Guide to Florida Wildflowers by Walter Kingsley Taylor, floridata.com, and ifas. ufl.edu.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 24, 201222 FWC Asks Public To Share Florida Panther SightingsThe Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has launched a new website that makes it easy for citizens who spot Florida panthers to share the information online. The site https://Public.MyFWC. com/hsc/PantherSightings/ enables the public to report when and where they have seen a panther or its tracks and upload photos of the sighting. As recently as the 1970s, the Florida panther was close to disappearing, with as few as 20 animals in the wild. Now there are an estimated 100 to 160 adults and subadults. Sub-adults are panthers that have left their mother but are not yet breeding age. The growing population of this endangered species and its need to roam over large areas mean panthers are spreading beyond their well-documented south Florida range. The FWC has evidence of panther sightings throughout Florida and is getting increased reports from people lucky enough to have photographed a panther or its tracks. While its encouraging to hear from a person who is excited about seeing a Florida panther, the FWC has to have specific documentation of the panther sighting to provide sound science-based panther management, said Darrell Land, FWC panther team leader. Weve been receiving a lot of panther pictures from people who use trail cameras, and this website makes it easy for them to share that information with the FWC. FWC researchers will use the reported sightings to gain knowledge on the range of Florida panthers. The comeback of the Florida panther is a great example of what coordinated conservation efforts can accomplish, Land added. The FWC is asking people to help document how panthers are responding to these conservation efforts and where they are coexisting with Floridas 19 million human residents. Learn more about the Florida panther at www.FloridaPantherNet.org. The site includes information about panthers for people of different interest levels, including a coloring book and activity pages for kids.

The donation/entry fee is $250 and all proceeds benefit the Lakes Park Enrichment Foundation, which is currently raising funds to build a botanic garden and provide other park improvements. The Scarecrows In The Park contest is a great opportunity for local businesses and organizations to promote themselves and build awareness in a fun and creative way. For example, Dermatology Solutions scarecrow demonstrated proper use of sunscreen under a shaded umbrella, a fun way to remind festival attendees of the importance of sun safety, said Marsha Asp, chairperson for the Lakes Park Enrichment Foundation. Schools, youth groups and family submissions are also accepted and can be a fun way for each to celebrate the fall season while supporting Lakes Park. For those willing to make a donation but do not desire to create a scarecrow, Lakes Park Enrichment Foundation will match sponsors with youth organizations willing to create a scarecrow. In addition to Scarecrows In The Park, the festival includes a pumpkin patch, bounce houses, hayrides, the Halloween Express train and other activities. The Lakes Park Enrichment Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable corporation established in 2004 by a group of Lee County business leaders and dedicated citizens who recognize Lakes Park as an extremely important green area in Lee County. The foundations main focus is to assist Lee County Parks and Recreation in the continued implementation of the $30 million Lakes Park Master Plan, enhancing the parks environmental aesthetics, wildlife habitat and recreational amenities for the community to enjoy for many years to come. Currently, the Lakes Park Enrichment Foundation is focusing its fundraising on creating a botanical garden at Lakes Park and adding wildlife viewers to improve visibility of birds in the rookery.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 24, 201224 Murder, Laughs At Theatre Conspiracyby Di SaggauJoe Di Pietros Art Of Murder is now showing at Theatre Conspiracy. Directed by Mike Breen, the play provides an evening of fast-paced entertainment that ranges from hilarious to surprising and tense. Set in a remote artists estate in Connecticut, the dark comedy pokes fun at artists, their agents and how a dead artist is worth more than a live one. Jack Brooks (Miguel Cintron) and his wife Annie (Denise Scott) are at odds over who is the more talented. They have invited their agent Vincent (Chas Greer) over for dinner to discuss their art careers. He arrives shortly after their maid Kate (Brittany Albury) leaves for the evening. After Jack retreats for some solitude in his isolation tank, a coffin-like contraption conveniently and awkwardly located in their living room, Annie convinces Vincent that theyd all be better off without Jack. She comes up with a clever scheme that involves keeping Jack inside the isolation tank. From this point on, everybody tells a story... then changes the story. Someone appears to die, but doesnt die, then appears to be an artist, and isnt an artist. The script is full of artsy quips and screaming accusations and excluding Kate all the characters are so meanspirited, its hard to care who murders whom. Jack is furious at Vincent for failing to sell his newest work, which he calls Study In Red No. 4. Never mind that there are no other studies and the painting in question is, in fact, yellow. When Vincent says the painting is not up to his other work, Jack loses it and falls into a violent screaming rage. His catch phrase is Im an artist, never judge me. The cast is superb. Cintron, as Jack, is outwardly arrogant and inwardly insecure, consumed with his desire to be recognized. Scotts facial expressions and general physicality as the scheming Annie change constantly. Albury, with her Irish accent, punctuates the comedy with flashes of intensity, during her on and off stage intervals. The scene stealer is Greer as the greedy, flamboyant and calculating agent. Tall and lanky, in a three-piece shiny black suit with lavender shirt, Greer is given the best witticisms, especially when he talks about a major posthumous campaign that would include not just a retrospective of the artists work, but T-shirts and pillow cases stamped with the dead mans image. In his words, Anyone who has ever met Jack has thought about killing him. The action never lags and the numerous plot twists in the second act leave the audience wondering what is really going on. The serious subject of murder is addressed with well executed comedy woven into a surprisingly deep plot that touches on sociocultural issues. Art Of Murder plays through September 1 at Theatre Conspiracy located in the Foulds Theatre at Alliance for the Arts, 10091 McGregor Boulevard in Fort Myers.

25 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 24, 2012Birds Eye ViewTaking A Walk With A Crocby Mark Bird WestallIn the article I wrote comparing how we managed the Native Americans of this country, and how we are (now) managing our native wildlife, I mentioned that my ex had a few stories to tell about the American crocodile that used to live on the island. The following is her story, but it is one of my favorites. I am sure the story is more exciting when she tells it herself, but I will try not lose too much of the thrill and adventure that she and the croc shared one damp, pre-dawn morning. By the mid-1990s, after a decade and a half of trying to help Sanibel co-exist with the islands natural world, I was beginning to realize that in many cases I wasnt helping the people of Sanibel to co-exist; I was forcing them to coexist. Being frustrated by this realization, I embarked on what I call my mid-life crisis and bought a lodge in Alaska. That meant that for large periods of time during the summer, I would disappear from Sanibels sub-tropical environs and explore the wilds of our most northern state. And although my ex would travel with me occasionally, she mostly stayed behind on the island and took care of her responsibilities here. But it wasnt like I was leaving my wife all alone. She was protected by someone very special. Not long before I started running off to Alaska, the islands lone 11-foot female crocodile decided to start laying eggs at the end of our driveway and spending much of the day siting in the shade under our stilt house. During the night, she would walk up our driveway and keep guard by her nest. If someone voiced their concern for my wifes safety with the croc literally underfoot and me being gone, we would both jokingly respond that she was more protected with the croc there than if Bird was home. My wife had been helping me move wayward alligators for years on the island, and she knew the reality of how non-aggressive the American croc was towards humans. We just couldnt imagine a burglar or a rapist sneaking down the driveway in the middle of the night to get at my wife... not with the croc lying there in the middle of the driveway with her mouth wide open! We didnt think it was a hassle having the croc stay at our house; we thought it was more of an honor! During the first year that the croc spent her summers at the house, we didnt know whether her eggs were going to be fertile or not. That wasnt determined until after the first years nesting failed and the University of Florida collected the eggs and had them checked. So, when it started getting close to time for the eggs to possibly hatch that first year, we wanted to document the hatching. Dutifully, my wife started getting up in the middle of the night about every three to four hours and checking the status of the croc and her nest. I, of course, was in Alaska and couldnt share in the tedious monitoring responsibilities. After two weeks past the due date had expired, I talked to my wife on the phone and she told me an unbelievable story. The night before had been slightly rainy and the alarm had gone off like usual around three or four in the morning. Getting tired of the sleepless nights, she debated about going to check on the nest one more time. Was it really worth it? But then she couldnt get back to sleep because she just knew that would be the time the croc would be carrying her babies down our driveway to the relative safety of the pond behind the house. So, she sleepily put on a raincoat over her nightgown, grabbed a flashlight, trudged downstairs and started walking up the driveway. Being only half awake, she wasnt paying close attention until she suddenly realized that she and the croc were only about 15 feet away from each other... and walking towards each other! Now, as I mentioned before, she knew her way around crocodilians. Small gators will usually run from you, but big ones tend to lie down and wait for you to make the first move or go away. So my wife expected the croc to just lie down after the two of them almost walked into each other. She quickly turned off her flashlight, telling the croc that she was sorry for disturbing her, and turned around and began walking back down the driveway towards the house. But then in the quiet and darkness of the night, my wife could hear the crocs tail slowly going swoosh swoosh swoosh as she continued walking down the driveway (they kind of wag their tails when they walk). You see, the croc didnt lie down at all... she just kept on walking. So, there was my wife, with the croc following 15 feet behind, walking down the driveway together in the dark! When they got close to the house, my wife went upstairs to bed and the croc continued on page 26 ZAGAT ZAGAT.COM R ated by : Fish Tacos! Book Signing Event!Ft.

Shore Fishing:Don't Harm The Fishby Capt. Matt Mitchell Landing a big sh from the beach can be hard on the sh. Dragging a sh up onto the sand if youre going to release it is not an option as it usually damages or kills the sh. Hold the sh in the water while you unhook it if youre going to release it. The less you can touch a sh before release the better for the sh. If you want a picture with the sh, support it as you lift it out of the water and do it quickly. Before releasing, revive the sh while holding it in the water; moving it slowly back and forth so water goes over its gills. The sh will let you know when its ready to swim off. Florida just recently changed the regulations on shing from shore. Florida residents as well as out of state visitors need a shing license to sh from shore.

Watermedia workshop will be offered at BIG ARTS Fused glass workshop at BIG ARTS Lovegrove Invited To Exhibit Work At Southwest Florida InternationalWhen Leoma Lovegrove was invited by the Alliance of the Arts to be part of the Honor, County & Heroism exhibition, she couldnt get her paint out fast enough. Known for her patriotism and brilliant splashy hues, she wanted to create a special piece to honor the military arriving back home to Southwest Florida International Airport. Last year, her mammoth 10 by 18 foot canvas Remember 9/11 was on exhibit. For this exhibition Lovegrove painted Shine On, a canvas painted with energized brush strokes resembling the United States flag with blazing embellished words, From Sea To Shining Sea. The art hangs in Concourse D, along with 33 other Southwest Florida artists works. The exhibit continues through July 2013. The Honor, Country & Heroism exhibit was created to honor the men and women of the armed forces. This collection includes 32 canvases submitted by 34 artists, including six military veterans. These pieces feature a vibrant color palette, paying tribute to our countrys heroes and welcoming our troops as they return home to Southwest Florida. Art In Flight is a partnership between the Lee County Alliance for the Arts and the Lee County Port Authority, which brings art to public spaces at the Southwest Florida International Airport.


ISLAND SUN AUGUST 24, 201228 From page 1Ding Documentarygoal. In addition, we have been building contacts and establishing dates for the shows premieres around the country. Earlier this month, the Marvo team was back on the islands, completing additional filming at the refuge as well as in the studio. Among the participants were Chris Steffen, the great-great grandson of Darling; Jefferson Jones, a Lehigh Acres teen who has won the Florida Junior Duck Stamp competition for the past three years; Toni Westland, supervisory refuge ranger; and Jason Kalajainen, creative director of The Robert Rauschenberg Foundations artist residency program. Chris (Steffen) did a wonderful job at the WGCU studio, with whom we have been partnering, said Koltinsky. We filmed Chris with a number of artifacts that I have been collecting from around the country, most of which have never been seen by the public. No, I am not giving any clues to what they are. However, I promise lots of wows from the audience! Steffen, 17, explained that he enjoyed both of his visits to the islands this year, especially when he and his family were able to visit the Fish House for the first time back in March. Of course, being a vital part of the documentary is also exciting. Before all of this started, I really had no idea how much interest in my great-great grandfathers work was out there, said Steffen, who lives in Temple, Texas. Grandpa Kip (Koss) always told us stories about him, but not too many kids my age know too much about him. One of the treasures that Koltinsky uncovered during his research for the film was an original printers plate of the farewell cartoon drawn by Ding Darling in early 1962. Both Steffen and Jones were thrilled to see the artifact in person while visiting the refuge recently. One of my aunts (Jennifer Graham) used to talk about that printers plate all the time, added Steffen, who will serve as the on-camera host for the film. I think she was pretty jealous that I got to see it and hold it in person. Its one of his best known works. Jones, 17, would like to pursue a career much like Darling himself working in cooperation with wildlife, as an artist. I get a lot of my ideas just walking around, observing wildlife, said Jones. I usually do my own sketches, but Id like to develop my photography skills. I prefer to work from my own experiences rather than from somebody elses images. I think that it adds to a painting when it feels more personal to you. According to Koltinsky, Americas Darling will be completed in time for Ding Darling Days. In fact, the film is scheduled to be screened at 1 p.m. on Friday, October 19 at the refuges Education Center. In fact, I was able to meet with Dr. John McCabe, Mike Mullins and Paul Tritaik this past week, discussing some of the artifacts in the show as well as the upcoming premiere, said Koltinsky. You know that the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge has been, from the very beginning, key to the inspiration on which our project has been built. I am very thankful for not only their vision in helping to make this a reality, but also the wonderful people that inhabit Sanibel and Captiva. After several years dedicated to this project, Koltinsky pointed out that never has one persons life affected and inspired him as much as Ding Darling has done. I have had the honor to meet some of the best that this planet has to offer from historians, conservationists, preservationists, artists, cartoonists, friends of Darling to our wonderful Junior Duck Stamp winners across the country, he added. These people and organizations, to me, are the true testimonies to Darlings legacy. And, as one might expect, Steffen is eager to see the finished film. Im interested in seeing some of the historians and hearing what they say about my great-great grandfather, he said. My whole life, I grew up hearing stories told by my family about him, but I think it will be cool to hear how other people view him, his work and his accomplishments.

29 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 24, 2012Red Sox Big Disappointment On The Field In 2012, But Not When It Comes To Charitable Work In Communityby Ed FrankWhile the Boston Red Sox struggle to escape finishing last in the American League Eastern Division, more promising is a recent report showing that the organization has donated more than $52 million to charitable programs in the last 10 years, by far the most of any team in Major League baseball. That figure includes $7 million donated here in Lee County where the Red Sox make their spring training headquarters. Its a shame that this Red Sox philanthropy cannot quiet the turmoil that surrounds the team and its fans, but the fact is that the 2012 Red Sox are probably the most disappointing team in baseball. From a clubhouse revolt against manager Bobby Valientine to an admisision by Valentine himself that, Im not doing a good job, the Red Sox began the week a staggering 13 1/2 games behind their hated rival, the first-place New York Yankees. Despite front-office denials, its likely that Valentine will be fired at the end of season unless the team makes a miraculous late-season run for a wild card spot. There have been reports that as many as 17 players met with team ownership in late July asking that Valentine be dismissed. Adding fuel to the fire are additional rumors that three of his coaches barely speak to their controversial boss. In fairness to Valentine, his team has been plagued all season with injuries necessitating a patchwork lineup. And who would have imagined that his pitching ace, Josh Beckett, would have a miserable 5-11 record this late in the season, with an even worse ERA of 5.23 over 7.2 since the All-Star break? While the Red Sox have played poorly on the field this year, that is certainly not the case in the field of charity work. They do some of the best work in the country, not just in Major League baseball but in all sports, said Greg Johnson, executive director of the Sports Philanthropy Project, a group that studies the impact of charity among professional sports teams and players. In 2010 alone, the Red Sox Foundation donated $7.6 million to charities. By comparison, the New York Yankees Foundation, gave $3.6 million, second highest in baseball. The Red Sox commitment to charitable work dates back 10 years ago, when the present ownership assumed control of the franchise. At the time, the new owners signed a contract with the Massachusetts Attorney General promising to raise $20 million for area charities over the next 10 years. That commitment has been exceeded by more than 2 1/2 times. And this does not include the millions more given to nonprofits through the donation of more than 40,000 autographed items, 5,500 appearances by current and former players and tickets to games, concerts and special events. Here in Lee County, in addition to the $7 million donated to local charities, the Red Sox organization volunteered more than 300 hours of community services in just the last 12 months. Red Sox fans are perhaps the most fervent in all of baseball. And they are not happy with their 2012 team. But the Red Sox organization is sure a winner when it comes to charitable work. And thats really more important. Time Running Out On Post-Season Hopes For Miracle The Fort Myers Miracle baseball team began this week five games out of first place in the Florida State Leagues South Division, with just 10 games remaining in the regular season. This is a large gap to close in order to qualify for post-season play. Six of the final 10 games are at home at Hammond Stadium including a threegame series this weekend Friday, Saturday and Sunday against the Palm Beach Cardinals. The Friday game has a 7:05 p.m. start, Saturday at 6:05 p.m. and the Sunday matinee at 1:05 p.m. The Miracle closes the season next week, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, at home against the Charlotte Stone Crabs. Olympics Drew Millions Of Viewers Per Night; The Most In TV History As the Olympic flame was extinguished in London, there was a collective sigh among hundreds of millions of television viewers who had become enamored by the 17-day extravaganza the most-watched event in television history. The amazing rapture of the every four-year Olympics captures the devoted interest and fascination of millions who do not otherwise consider themselves sports fans. The proof of this fact lies in the television ratings that showed an average of 31.5 million viewers per night in the United States alone, a 12 percent increase over the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Whether you were a fan of the Fab Five U.S. girls gymnasts, (and how could you not be?), or 22-medal winner Michael Phelps, the greatest Olympian of all time; or sprinter Usain Bolt, the fastest man in the world; or the heroics of South African double amputee Oscar Pistorius who ran on carbon-fiber legs, there was drama, inspiration and excitement every day for 17 days. The critics, and there always are many, admitted that London did a marvelous job security-wise, traffic-wise and hospitality-wise, while providing magnificent settings among historic London landmarks for the many Olympic venues. The United States captured the world platform with a total of 104 medals, 46 gold, due in great part to the performance of its women who won 63 percent of the countrys gold and 56 percent of its total. China finished No. 2 with 87 medals, 38 gold. Fittingly, the final day of the competition featured college basketball legend Mike Krzyzewski coaching the U.S. mens basketball team to its second consecutive Olympic title, defeating a talented Spain team 107-100. His coaching genius corralled the egos of the NBA-start-studded team into Olympic gold, running his record to 61-1 in Olympic competition. Hes brilliant, proclaimed future Hall of Famer Kobe Bryant. Now the scene shifts to Rio de Janeiro where the 2016 summer games will be held much to the dismay of Chicago which thought it had the inside track for the 2016 games. Construction already has begun on Olympic Village in the Carnival City where first the 2014 FIFA World Cup will be staged. In Sunday nights closing ceremony, 250 Brazilian dancers and musicians staged a colorful performance designed to showcase that countrys culture. The 2016 Summer Olympics will be a first for South America. For those of you that missed your Olympic fix these past couple of weeks, remember that the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, is less than two years away. Sanibel-Captiva KiwanisKiwanis Kornersubmitted by Eric PfeiferThis week, we were honored to have Bob Stewart as our guest speaker. Stewart is the chairman of the National Association of Railroad Passengers (NARP), of which there are 24,000 members. Although some of you may immediately think Amtrak, Bob is not a government employee. While we do not often think of trains on Sanibel or in Southwest Florida, Stewart is passionate about railway commuting. He said 100 million more people will join us in this world between now and 2050. Just think about the Periwinkle back-ups then! With our current roadway infrastructure, Stewart estimates that 2.5 billion gallons of fuel are wasted, and 32,500 people are killed each year. He said we need to focus on integrating our road, air and rail traffic, and the rail system needs to be modernized. The United States currently ranks 23rd in the world as far as efficiency in transportation. This takes into account the speed, convenience, reliability as well as price. Oil, and the dependency on it, contribute to this, according to Stewart. Amtrak is currently only able to cover 82 percent of their costs with their revenue. Bob feels that this would change by adding more cars to each train. The problem is certainly not demand, as every car is usually full on the commuter trains as well as the Autotrain coming to Florida from Virginia. In Florida, the high speed rail between Orlando and Tampa has constantly been a hot topic, but each year the state government shoots it down. Stewart feels that rail service between all major cities in Florida would be utilized, especially since the airlines continue to shut down routes. American Airlines will stop flights from Fort Myers to Miami, and no flights currently exist from Fort Myers to Tampa, Jacksonville or Tallahassee. Florida will be the third largest state by population next year, so we need to consider some transportation alternatives. Stewart also recommends that Lee County consider buying the CSX Rail Lines for commuter use. He is also pushing for another Autotrain from Florida to the Midwest. To learn more about NARP, log onto their website at www.narprail. org. Please feel free to join us any Tuesday morning at 7:30 a.m. at The Dunes for breakfast. We look forward to seeing you.

But dont rush into making decisions until youve checked for possible hidden problems. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Some light begins to shine on professional and/ or personal situations that have long eluded explanation. Best advice: Dont rush things. All will be made clear in time. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Although you might want to protest what seems to be an unfair situation, its best to keep your tongue and temper in check for now. The full story hasnt yet come out. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Work prospects are back on track. But watch what you say. A thoughtless comment to the wrong person -even if its said in jest -could delay or even derail your progress. LEO (July 23 to August 22) A colleague might try to goad you into saying or doing the wrong thing. Its best to ignore the troublemaker, even if he or she riles your royal self. Your supporters stand with you. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Be careful not to let your on-the-job zealousness create resentment with co-workers who might feel you shut them out. Prove them wrong by including them in your project. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Although its not quite what you hoped for, use your good business sense to make the most of what youre being offered at this time. Things will improve down the line. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A more positive picture of what lies ahead is beginning to take shape. But there are still too many gaps that need to be filled in before you make definitive plans. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Continue to keep a tight hold on the reins so that you dont charge willynilly into a situation that might appear attractive on the surface but lack substance. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) You still need to demand those answers to your questions. Remember, your wise counseling earns you respect, but its your search for truth that gives you wisdom. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Youll find that people are happy to help you deal with some difficult situations. And, of course, knowing you, youll be happy to return those favors anytime. Wont you? PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Give that special someone in your personal life a large, loving dollop of reassurance. That will go a long way toward restoring the wellbeing of your ailing relationship. BORN THIS WEEK: You are a delightful paradox. You like things neat and tidy. But youre also a wonderful host who can throw a really great party. On Aug. 28, 1774, Elizabeth Ann Bayley is born in New York City. She went on to found the first Catholic school and the first female apostolic community in the United States. She also was the first American-born saint beatified by the Roman Catholic Church. On Sept. 1, 1850, circus entrepreneur P.T. Barnum brings to the United States Jenny Lind, the greatest opera performer in the world in the mid-19th century. Lind -- The Swedish Nightingale -was a sensation. Her tour is believed to have netted Barnum close to a half-million dollars, an astonishing sum in 1850. On Aug. 27, 1883, the most powerful volcanic eruption in recorded history occurs on Krakatau (also called Krakatoa), a small island located in Indonesia. Heard 3,000 miles away, the explosions threw 5 cubic miles of earth 50 miles into the air and created 120-foot tsunamis. On Aug. 29, 1942, the Red Cross reveals that Japan has refused free passage of ships carrying food, medicine and other necessities for American POWs held by Japan. Japan allowed just one-tenth of what POWs elsewhere received to reach prisoners in their territories. On Aug. 31, 1959, Brooklyn Dodgers left-hander Sandy Koufax strikes out 18 batters, setting a new National League record for most strikeouts in a single game. Koufax retired after the 1966 season at just 30 years old because of arthritis in his elbow. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1972. On Aug. 30, 1967, Thurgood Marshall becomes the first black American to be confirmed as a Supreme Court justice. He would remain on the Supreme Court for 24 years before retiring for health reasons, leaving a legacy of upholding the rights of the individual. On Sept. 2, 1987, the trial of Mathias Rust, the 19-year-old German pilot who flew his Cessna plane into Red Square in May 1987, begins in Moscow. Rust had become an international celebrity after he flew completely undetected through Soviet airspace. At his trial, Rust claimed he was merely trying to promote world peace. It was British-American poet T.S. Eliot who made the following sage observation: Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal. Each fingernail on the Statue of Liberty is nearly a foot long. Filmmaker George Lucas is arguably best known for his Star Wars franchise, but he also directed American Graffiti. During the making of that earlier film, he designated each reel of film with an R before the reels number, and each instance of dialog was prefixed with a D. At one point during the sound mixing, the sound designer needed to use Reel 2, Dialog 2, and so asked for R2D2. Lucas liked the sound of it so much that he used it for the name of a robot character in his later work. You can tell a cranberry is ripe when it can be dribbled like a basketball. Those who study such things (and seemingly have too much time on their hands) say that a quarter has 119 grooves around the outside edge, while dimes have 118. Have you ever heard of a woman named Thelma Pickles? Unless youre a somewhat obsessive fan of the Beatles, probably not. She was John Lennons first girlfriend. Among those who play basketball professionally, the men average 6 feet, 7 inches tall, while the women average an even 6 feet. If youre a vegetarian, youre part of the 3 percent of American adults who shun meat. In India, though, youd be part of a much larger minority; nearly a third of the population of that country is vegetarian. You may be surprised to learn that the pound sign is officially known as an octothorpe. A pessimist is a person who has listened to too many optimists. -Don Marquis THIS WEEK IN HISTORY STRANGE BUT TRUE THOUGHT FOR THE DAY


31 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 24, 2012 Jewish Federation Presents Benefit Concert At Alliance For The ArtsThe Jewish Federation of Lee and Charlotte Counties presents an evening of memorable music, performed by locally grown talent Zack Dobbins and piano virtuoso Yasuhiko Yaz Fukuoka, called You Wont Succeed On Broadway If You Dont Have Any Jews.

Fukuoka was born in Nara, Japan, where he studied classical piano, composition and percussion with various prestigious professors. At the age of 15, his self-published CD caught the attention of a producer at Kintetsu Cable Network (Japan), and he began his career in music. By the time he graduated from high school, he had already written and produced music for TV and film, as well as composed for various bands and concerts. His latest work for an orchestra was premiered at Lincoln Center in June 2012.

A New Protagonist For Randy Wayne Whiteby Di SaggauAfter nearly 20 bestselling Doc Ford novels, Randy Wayne White is introducing readers to a gutsy new heroine to root for in his new book, Gone. Hannah Smith is a strong, formidable woman, the descendant of generations of resourceful Florida women. Hannah lives on the Gulf Coast just across the bay from Sanibel Island and works as a fishing guide. Her ability to act under pressure operating her flats skiff during a storm impresses her wealthy client. He hires Hannah to find his missing niece, a woman who stands to inherit $90 million. Considering all that happened afterward, good and bad, I have no reason to regret beating that storm. But it has made me fretful about how one small event something as common as lightning and heavy rain can change a persons life in ways so big, there is no hope of returning. Only hope for what comes next. Hannah follows a trail of clues that take her to familiar territory. When reading about Captiva and Sanibel Islands, South Seas Plantation or the Green Flash Restaurant and, of course, Doc Fords Rum Bar, the reader can vividly imagine the scenes. She also travels to the mangrove swamps of the Ten Thousand Islands and deep into the recesses of the Florida underbelly places you dont find on tourist maps as she pursues a vicious predator.continued on page 32 Zack Dobbins performing in concert with Yasuhiko Fukuoka photo by Patricia Dobbins Voted as a Top 5 Best Breakfast in Florida By Southern Living Open 7 am 10 pm 7 Days a Week Breakfast Endless Happy Hour Huge Kids Menu Outside Open 7 am 10 pm 7 Days a Week O k Voted BEST Family Dining Now Serving Fresh

FALSE: While fewer storms can mean fewer making landfall anywhere in the United States, it doesnt really lower anyone chances of being the target. For example, 1992 was a considered a quiet hurricane season but one of the storms that did blow up turned into Hurricane Andrew, a Category 5 hurricane that the people along Floridas southeast coast will never forget..

33 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 24, 2012 The Glass Is Half Full: Outlook From The Sanibel Captiva Trust Companyby James M. Young, CFA, CFPFocusing on current macroeconomic concerns the European sovereign debt crisis, slowing emerging economies, and the approaching fiscal cliff, to name a few it is very easy to take an overly negative view toward global financial opportunities. It would also be simple to miss many of the fundamentally positive reasons for more optimism. First, while the European situation is far from being close to resolution, members of the common currency union may finally be realizing after almost three years that greater fiscal, political, and banking integration will likely be required if the Euro is to survive. Painstaking progress from this point, while complex and certainly not immediate, could mitigate the disaster of an outright currency collapse and resulting global economic tsunami. Even the eventual exit of Greece and perhaps even Portugal could likely be dealt with by having a better blueprint that includes comprehensive banking support to help prevent capital flight and further contagion to other member countries. With recessionary conditions in several European economies, current global economic concerns are only heightened by recent slowing of emerging market economies, particularly in China, India and Brazil. Earlier efforts to tighten monetary policy in these countries to avoid economic overheating and rising inflation are now being followed up with fresh economic stimulus. In the United States, a looming presidential election, potential automatic tax hikes and across-the-board fiscal spending cuts remain significant possibilities. Political gridlock and an inability to compromise on policy remains the base case, so even the slightest political progress would likely provide a strong positive surprise. Current valuations of equity securities in the U.S., emerging markets, and particularly Europe reflect much of the present headline risk and uncertainty. Investors need to look beyond the present haze at the drivers of future economic growth in order to more fully appreciate the longer term opportunities. These developing economic drivers include early signs of improving housing and real estate activity (after five years of devastation), slowly moderating job losses (if not yet significant improvement in structural unemployment) and improving energy costs. We have frequently noted the strength of U.S. corporate balance sheets, improving returns on capital, high cash flow yields and outright cash holdings (even if held abroad). Just a moderate level of improving confidence in government regulation and policy, along with incentives and tax abatements for productive re-deployment of foreign held cash, could result in significant economic improvement and job creation. The diminishing advantages to off-shoring production are already causing an increase in the trend toward increased on-shoring back to the U.S. incentives can surely help. These positive trends are being further fueled by the availability of the newest technological innovations, improving supply chains and, critically, the new abundance of cheap natural gas. While still in the midst of the present haze of uncertainty, these significant early trends are difficult to recognize. It is even harder to imagine any lasting effort to move away from having our backs continually to the wall from a policy standpoint. Yet it is just this sort of initial economic traction that is needed for our eventual return to a more self sustainable economic growth cycle and meaningful job creation. The growth option of improving our overall economy and thereby our tax revenues and structural deficits is something we must not just hope for.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 24, 201234 Around The Islands With AnneChiropractic Couple Open For Business On Sanibel; Banner Pools At Your Serviceby Anne MitchellHusbandand-wife chiropractors Dr. Greg Walsh and Dr. Jaclyn Walsh want potential patients to know that they can be treated without any of the popping and cracking that is often associated with their profession. Thats just the gases in the joints being released, explained Dr. Jaclyn Walsh. She and her husband recently opened Sanibel Chiropractic, purchasing the business from Dr. Michael Tolisano. She acknowleged that some people actually like to hear the sounds because it makes them feel as though the joint-alignment process is working but with modern instruments, theres no need for it. It doesnt take that much force to get a bone to move, she noted. Others are afraid to go because they think it will hurt or that they will be twisted into a pretzel, in Dr. Greg Walshs words. The Walshes use gun-type instruments that send painless pulses to the specific areas being treated. The instruments are more accurate than the hands, they say, and help make the patient feel more relaxed. Another helpful piece of equipment is the upright treatment table that tilts the patient into the correct position. It requires no straddling of a bench or climbing onto a table. The Walshes moved here from Paducah, Kentucky, where they practiced together with Jaclyns uncle. When they were ready to strike out on their own, Florida was top of the list. Our practice will be focusing on delivering specific, gentle treatment through instrument adjusting, said Dr. Greg Walsh. They accept walk-ins. Since opening their new business, they have introduced a new, lower price list with family plan incentives and added new features such as HydroMassage, which is already becoming a favorite. It consists of a soft padded table atop a large tub of water. You can control the intensity and location of the massage on a touch screen to manipulate the water jets. Once settled in, you can listen to music or play interactive games on the screen. If youd like to try it, stop in. The price is $1 per minute for patients (with the first 10 minutes free for new patients), $2 per minute for non-patients. Buy nine massages and get the 10th free. Choose as few as 10 minutes or as long as an hour. The HydroMassage works whether you want a gentle, relaxing massage or an intense one that focuses on a specific area. People who work on the island dont have much time and they get stressed out, said Dr. Greg Walsh. Also, some people dont enjoy the hands-on treatment of a therapist and they dont like to take off their clothes, or perhaps they want more control of the massage, he added. He considers massaging the soft tissues a logical addition to the chiropractic treatments, which focus on joints and the nervous system. Greg Walsh graduated from Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic in Spartanburg, South Carolina. He attended the Ohio State University and completed his Bachelor of Science degree from Excelsior College. Jaclyn Walsh earned her doctor of chiropractic degree from Sherman College of Chiropractic in 2009. Sanibel Chiropractic is open Monday through Saturday, Sunday by appointment, at 1456 Periwinkle Way, Suite C. For more information or to make an appointment, call 472-0900. If you have a pool, you will know that this time of year, more maintenance is required. The summer rains, high temperatures and increased use add up to the need for extra chemicals and, perhaps, repairs. Banner Pool Service has been in business on the islands for many years doing service and repair. A couple of years ago, Banner opened a store in Anchor Point shopping center to supply all your needs everything from pool toys to pumps, filters and complete packages, including salt systems. And heres a neat service: the store has demonstration units for salt pools to show customers and introduce the concept or troubleshoot with them. Owner David Liebetrau said pool owners noticing cloudy water and a filmy substance on the surface should check for whitefly. Infestations are rife right now, especially in species such as ficus, gumbo limbo, strangler figs and schefflera. The flies produce a waxy debris that falls into pools and also clogs up filters. Liebetrau said your pool company cant deal with it you have to consult your landscaper. Banner Pool is 1633 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel, phone 472-4100.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 24, 201236 Shell Point Academy Class Features Hong Kong The Rise Of The DragonThe Academy at Shell Point invites Southwest Florida residents to attend an informative presentation entitled, Hong Kong The Rise of the Dragon. The event will take place on Tuesday, September 11 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. in the Grand Cypress Room of The Woodlands at Shell Point Retirement Community. Tickets are required to attend, and can be purchased for $10 each by calling 489-8472. Professor Adrian Kerr, a well known author and educator, returns to Shell Point to trace Hong Kongs epic journey from a tiny uninhabited swampy British colony after the Opium War of 1839, to its current status as global financial economic powerhouse and business capital. Meaning Fragrant Harbor, the city has a dramatic physical setting with an expansive skyline overlooking the picturesque Victoria Harbor. We will put Hong Kong in the context of Chinas fascinating long and turbulent history and track its rise under the 1997 one country two systems mandate, said Kerr. We will discuss how it has become the model for the rest of China. Professor Kerr is one of our most popular and regular presenters in the Academy at Shell Point, said Teri Kollath, manager of Academy and Volunteer Services. We are pleased to welcome him back, and I know that guests will enjoy this informative presentation. He always brings intriguing and informative presentations to our Academy because of his immense knowledge of the history of various regions and his ability to share how their history relates to today. The Academy of Life Long Learning at Shell Point is an educational initiative for the residents of the retirement community. The Academy provides anywhere from 70 to 90 classes each semester that encompass a well-rounded curriculum of educational opportunities for senior adults. The Academy of Life Long Learning at Shell Point was named as one of 2008s most innovative active aging programs by the International Council on Active Aging (ICAA), an association that supports professionals who develop wellness/fitness facilities and services for age 50-plus adults. To learn more about Shell Point Retirement Community, visit www.shellpoint.org or call 1-800-780-1131. Adrian Kerr From page 1Sanibel Night PromWere working very hard to make this a night to remember for everyone, said event chair Patty Holston. If you like to dance, socialize and have a good time, all while raising money for a great cause, then this is the event for you! The Sanibel School PTA and the Sanibel School Fund work together to raise money to fill in the funding gaps at our school, added Denise McKee, PTA president. With great help from our community, weve been able to provide students with laptop and desktop computers for their classrooms, yearly software upgrades and supplies for teachers and students. All of these tools serve to enhance the educational experience of every student at The Sanibel School. Tickets to Sanibel Night Prom are $25 per person and may be purchased through The Sanibel School as well as at The Dunes on the night of the event. Guests must be 21 or older to attend. All proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit The Sanibel School. While Holston stated that she is looking forward to getting down to the sounds of the Bee Gees You Should Be Dancing, The Sanibel Schools principal, Barbara Von Harten, plans on shaking her hips to songs like Last Dance, by the legendary Queen of Disco, Donna Summer. As for Leilani Sivsov, general manager at The Dunes, she is looking forward to attending a fun and festive community event. We are always happy to host anything thats for a good cause here on the islands, especially The Sanibel School, said Sivsov. And I enjoy any excuse to whip out my s red sequin jumpsuit!

Miss-A-Miracle and the Goodwill mascot at a Miracle game PGA TipsUneven Liesby Matt Oakley, PGA Golf ProfessionalI like to practice my golf. It is something I can do alone and always makes the rest of the world melt away. Of course, I practice like everyone practices on a perfectly even practice tee with a flat lie. Then, we go onto the golf course and hit that perfect drive right down the middle of the fairway, you get to your ball and Whoa! a slightly uneven lie. This is where the game begins; the earth is not flat, not even close. Here are the four most common uneven lies in golf, what errors they cause and how to fix them: 1. Sidehill Ball Above Feet The three most common errors on this lie are chunking, pulling and hooking. Stand as perpendicular to the lie as possible, yet the weight is on the balls of the feet. In other words, do not lean into the shot but rather stand taller. Choke down on the club so the club can clear the ground. Think about it, if the ball is above your feet the ball is closer to you than normal. To avoid chunking, choke down towards the metal of the club. Position the ball near the center of the feet, since the weight transfer will not be as strong. Stay still through the shot. If you dip, you will hit way behind the ball. Take a few practice swings before the shot to get the feel of what gravity is trying to do to you while you swing. Allow for the pull or the hook by aiming right of the target. 2. Sidehill Ball Below Feet The three most common errors on this lie are topped, pushed and push-sliced. Go to the full length of the grip. Stand close enough to the ball to easily reach it with the club head. Angle the body close to perpendicular with the ground, but sit deeper in the knees at address and let the weight feel more on the heels. Keep the suspension radius constant. Do not pull up or fall forward. Aim to the left an amount relative to the tilt of the club face and allow the ball to go to the right. 3. Downhill Lie The three most common errors on this lie are the push, push-fade and topped shots. Play the ball slightly back of middle in the stance. Set up perpendicular to the ground, but resist being pulled down the hill past the ball (stay back). Tilt the shoulders as much as possible to match the slope of the ground (it helps to sit more in the right knee). Allow for the ball to come out lower, hotter and roll farther. Aim to the left to commensurate with the slope. 4. Uphill Lie The three most common errors on this lie are pulling, chunking and under clubbing. Set up perpendicular to the ground level, but with a bit more focus of keeping the weight on the left side through the swing. Play the ball near the middle of your stance. Take at least one more club for the distance required. Choke down on the club for better control. Aim to the right.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 24, 201240 Superior InteriorsLight Up Your Life With The Right Room Lightingby Marcia FeeneyIn addition to knowing which colors are the most flattering to you, its also important for you to take into consideration how light, both natural and artificial, will affect your desired color scheme. First, consider how much natural light enters the room, and for how tong a period during the day. In sunny rooms with a southern exposure, cool colors will be more pleasing than warm ones; hot yellows and reds will produce a unpleasant glare during a large part of the day, and are more effectively used in room that faces north and needs the warming effect of sunny colors. Darkening the room by covering the windows does nothing, except make all the colors in your room look dark and gloomy. The window treatment you use will definitely affect the amount and quality of natural light in your room, and therefore your color scheme. Artificial light can affect colors even more markedly. Generally, standard incandescent bulbs give off a yellowish light, while standard fluorescents create a cold and harsher light. However, many different tints of bulbs are available in both types of lights. Using the right tint in the bulbs you select will definitely help you control the way your colors look in artificial light. Red light makes pink or red hued walls look grey; blue tinted light makes them look purple; yellow light makes them look red-orange. Blue light makes blue-tinted walls look grey; red light makes them look purple; yellow light gives them a greenish cast. Yellow light makes yellow walls look grey; red light makes. them look orange: blue toned light makes them look unpleasantly greenish Red light makes green walls look grey; yellow light makes them look bluish green; blue light makes them look yellowish green. As you can see, the effect of different colors is not always predictable, but throwing a light of one color on a wall of the same color will always tend to neutralize that color and ultimately make the wall look dull and grey. Definitely not a pretty picture! You choose a color scheme because its becoming to your own coloring, be sure to carry through with a lighting plan that will do what you want it to do, and not detract from the effect you have in mind.

Are You Grounded?by Bryan HayesYou probably have noticed that I cant resist a corny reference related to my industry, hence the title of this article. But hey, Im just here to share something I know, and sometimes I like to think Im funny. I have a question for you: do you know the difference between a grounded and ungrounded outlet? If not, I can explain. Homes that were built before the 1960s didnt have grounded outlets, and everything built thereafter should (but it may not always be the case.) If you look at the outlets around your home, they should have the telltale three slots that allow you to plug in the three-pronged appliances around our homes. Another important feature of modern outlets is split receptacles, where each half of an outlet is linked to a different circuit or a switch. These are often used in bedrooms that are linked to a switch. These are used for turning a lamp on, while the other outlet is still available for other needs. Another term you are probably familiar with is GFI or GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter), and youve likely seen them around your home in places like your kitchen or bathrooms (its particularly important to have them in places that have water.) It may have even tripped on you a few times, but I can tell you that this is a good thing. GFCIs are meant to protect you in wet locations. What happens is the device senses a sudden unusual spike in energy draw. Such is the situation of standing on a wet floor in bare feet where you can become part of the circuit. Once the GFCI measures this imbalance, it almost instantly shuts off the electricity to prevent you from getting shocked. There are several code requirements for these devices and if you have an older home, its important to know if you are up to code. An ungrounded electrical outlet lacks a ground wire. In some cases, when people were updating their old homes to new three-pronged outlets, they just changed the outlet, but didnt add this wire. This is something that can be and should be tested. If youre unsure you can always call your electrical contractor and they can do this very simple check for you. As always, thanks for reading. Bryan Hayes is a Sanibel air conditioning contractor. He also owns, with his brother Todd, an electrical business on Sanibel. He can be reached at Bryan@Sanibelair.com.

PAWS Seeks Foster Homes For Mother Cat And KittensPAWS needs foster homes and donations to help care for a mama cat and her six kittens that were found in an abandoned apartment on Sanibel after their owner was evicted. The mother cat is small and white, and her six babies are approximately 3-monthsold and mostly all white and some are white and gray. PAWS will have them tested to make sure everyone is healthy and then have them spayed or neutered, but after that, they will need foster homes. Coral Vet doesnt have space because they are in the middle of renovations, therefore, there is a lack of usable space. If you can help, call PAWS volunteer Pam at 472-4823.

Our motto at Billys Bike Shop is to provide expert sales, repairs and islandfriendly advice, said owners Billy and Salli Kirkland. We also have a personal motto to support our communitys nonprofits and volunteer our services wherever needed, because we feel that its the best way to pay back the blessings of a successful business. The FISH 10K race is one of Billy Kirklands favorite opportunities to donate private label bottled water, lights, trucks and manpower to assure the success of an event that raises funds and offers a fitness challenge to residents and visitors in our island paradise. The exposure Billys Bike Shop receives through sponsorship, and the joy Kirkland gets from being the official go-fer of the morning of the run, assures their annual sponsorship. Billy Kirkland has been instrumental in our past successes during this event, said Bill Fellows, president of FISH. His time and manpower always go above and beyond to make sure that everything we need is at our disposal. We are always grateful to both him and Salli for their ongoing support and we thank them for choosing to be one of our sponsors.

Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My daughter started a new school this year and they have therapy dogs there. I am somewhat uncomfortable with these animals and dont understand how they help children. What can you tell me about therapy dogs in schools? Christina B, Ocala, Florida Christina, There are many benefits of having therapy dogs at a school. The concept of therapy dogs began in World War II when Dr. Charles Mayo (of the Mayo Clinic) noticed how wounded troops responded positively to a pet terrier named Smokey who was allowed to visit the wounded soldiers. The idea that an animal can bring happiness and lower stress evolved and, by 1976, programs to certify animals for therapeutic purposes began. In 1982, an organization was founded in California to bring therapy animals to work with severely handicapped children and the elderly and the practice of animal assisted therapy has grown from this. There is limited research suggesting that interactions with therapy dogs can increase oxytocin (bonding) and dopamine (happiness) while lowering cortisol (stress), however, most of the information we have on the benefits are anecdotal. The reported benefits for school children that interact with therapy animals are many and include: Academic Benefits Improves attendance and decreases tardiness Students turn in homework more often and increase performance in other subjects Reinforces learning Motivates speech, learning, and exercise Stimulates the senses Facilitates counseling Does not judge, criticize or laugh, and they are less intimidating than peers Social Benefits Students build self-esteem, confidence, social skills and communication skills Trusting relationships are formed Fosters feelings of safety and acceptance Decreases loneliness, anxiety, anger and depression Teaches unconditional love and acceptance, Teaches to give instead of receive Encourages positive social behaviors Lowers blood pressure and increases relaxation The therapy dogs at your daughters school should be certified. This certification includes an evaluation by a certified evaluator. The test will also include the evaluation of the dogs behavior around people with the use of some type of service equipment (wheelchairs, crutches, etc.). You may want to check on this. A good resource for more information on therapy dog qualifications is Therapy Dogs International at www.tdi-dog.org. Many schools now use therapy dogs to help children to read. According to Therapy Dogs International, The main objective of the reading program is to provide a relaxed and dog-friendly atmosphere, which allows students to practice the skill of reading. Many of the children chosen for this program have difficulties reading and as a result have developed self-esteem issues. They are often selfconscious when reading aloud in front of other classmates. By sitting down next to a dog and reading to the dog, all threats of being judged are put aside. The child relaxes, pats the attentive dog and focuses on the reading. Reading improves because the child is practicing the skill of reading, building self-esteem and associating reading with something pleasant. Talk with your daughters teachers about your concerns and schedule an observation of the dog-child practices at your daughters school. As you learn more about this situation, I think your concerns will be addressed and perhaps you will see some benefits of this program. Ms. Greggs is adjunct faculty at Edison State College where she teaches psychology and education courses. She is also Nationally Certified School Psychologist and consultant for School Consultation Services, a private educational consulting company.

FGCU Students To Compete For ScholarshipsFlorida Gulf Coast University students will make a mad dash to write plays, compose music and edit films before the clock runs out during the sixth annual 24-Hour Festival, to be held on September 7 and 8.

43 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 24, 2012 Will PowerWhat To Do Firstby Craig R. Hersch, Florida Bar Board Certified Wills, Trusts & Estates Attorney; CPAI was sitting down at the desk in my home-office the other day wondering where to start. I decided to clean up my home office and go paperless, just like weve done in my professional office. The scanner is in place, all of the statements are piled up, and all I had to do was decide what project to tackle first. But its so big and daunting of a task, I felt myself paralyzed by indecision. It occurred to me that when someone loses their spouse, they have all of those similar feelings about their legal and financial affairs that they dont know where to begin. This is particularly true because when a loved one dies, there is obviously a lot of emotion involved along with new responsibilities falling on the survivors shoulders. Big projects are easier tackled in small doses. Breaking down a big project into smaller sub-projects is the first step. So I thought that today, I would summarize the big project of what to do when a loved one dies into smaller steps. 1. Gather all of the legal documents, including wills, trusts, irrevocable trusts, business agreements such as shareholders and operating agreements. 2. Gather recent bank statements, financial statements, brokerage statements, insurance policies, annuities, 401(k) and IRA statements, deeds to real estate and any other financial information you might have. 3. Bring in copies of your last income tax return. If you or your loved one has ever filed gift tax returns (commonly known as Form 709s), bring copies of any and all 709s that have been filed regardless of the year. 4. Obtain copies of death certificates. If you can order some with the cause of death and others without, do that. 5. Prepare a budget of your ongoing expenses to the best of your ability. If you have outstanding debts and credit card statements, gather those. Determine the amount of any outstanding mortgages. If your loved one has co-signed any notes or guarantees, gather those statements or agreements. 6. Schedule an appointment with your attorney, CPA and financial advisor. If they are all located in the same city, it is helpful if you have at least the initial meeting with all of your professionals in one meeting room. If that isnt possible for one reason or another, the next best thing is to meet with one and have the others on a conference call. 7. Bring in all of the material that youve gathered above to the meeting with your advisors. You may even want to ask the advisors if they would like copies in advance. 8. Remember to apply for benefits at the social security office. You will need a certified copy of the death certificate, a certified copy of your marriage license, and if you have minor children living at home you may need to bring their birth certificates. 9. If you own a Florida homestead, you may qualify for a widow(er) exemption in addition to your homestead exemption.

New Ribbon Supports Breast Cancer SurvivorsMy Hope Chest, a Florida-based non-profit, is proud to introduce the Breast Reconstruction Awareness Ribbon, the first ribbon to support uninsured and underinsured breast cancer survivors. This new ribbon speaks to the restoration, transformation and the completion from the cancer journey that many survivors seek through reconstructive surgery after mastectomy. For those who desire, breast reconstruction provides closure and a new wholeness allowing a woman to put the disease behind her at last. The traditional pink ribbon has branded breast cancer awareness, education and research but overlooks a huge population of underserved survivors that live with scars and a constant reminder of the disease, founder Alisa Savoretti said. There are hundreds of breast cancer groups in America focused on prevention and finding a cure, while the need for breast reconstruction has flown under the radar of the pink ribbon. The colors in the breast reconstruction ribbon transition and transform, just like the survivors My Hope Chest helps to become whole again. The ribbon goes from pink the original breast cancer color, to white known as the light or the power of healing. The white blends to yellow, the color of hope, sunshine and new beginnings. The Breast Reconstruction Awareness Ribbon symbolizes transformation and closure from the disease. My Hope Chest hopes this new symbol will help others recognize this need and shine the light on this epidemic for thousands who have sacrificed a piece of themselves to save their life. Founded in 2003 by Savoretti, My Hope Chest services pick up where other breast cancer organizations leave off providing final step of breast cancer treatment and helping women become whole again. Savoretti knows from first-hand experience how breast reconstruction after cancer helps restore not only the body but also transforms and heals the mind and spirit. She founded the organization after her own struggle with breast cancer. For more information, visit www. myhopechest.org. Got A Problem?

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 24, 201246 deaRPharmacistSimple Remedies To Help Heal Sun Fungusby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: This summer, Ive spent more time outside in the sun, and Ive noticed a bunch of little white spots appearing on my chest and back. What is this, and how can I treat it? NC, Orlando It sounds like you may have sun fungus, or Tinea versicolor a fungal infection that occurs on the outer layers of the skin. Its an external manifestation of too much yeast in the body that feed on your dead skin cells and skin oils. The yeast, called Malassezia globosa, causes it, and is usually found on our skin, but it grows in excess in certain conditions and may be triggered by sunny, hot humid environments (youre from Florida). Sorry to say, its generally a recurring condition. Tinea versicolor doesnt develop as a result of sun exposure, but the difference in pigmentation can become more obvious after youve begun tanning. As a pharmacist for 23 years, Ive recommended my share of topical ointments. Luckily, they dont smell bad, so it could definitely be worse! Try to find a cream that contains clotrimazole or miconazole since these are very strong anti-fungal agents. These anti-fungal creams are sold at your local pharmacy. Some dermatologists recommend using a dandruff shampoo containing selenium sulfide (i.e. Selsun Blue) and applying it to your skin. You can try this by applying it twice daily for a week or two and reevaluate after that. Although topical creams and ointments are usually quite effective and safe, the fungus grows from the inside of the body out. Because of this, there are major factors in your diet and lifestyle that must be addressed to keep the skin condition from recurring. This type of infection (and all fungusrelated ones) thrive by you eating sugar, starch and yeasts-containing foods. Therefore, avoid eating anything like this, such as all sweeteners (including the artificial ones), fruits, jams, bread, alcohol as well as other foods that dont necessarily have a high sugar content, but may make your condition worse. Im thinking vinegar, baked goodies and nuts. Hey, for some of you, the skin condition gives you more incentive to start that new diet youve been itching to try. Stick to the veggies, grass-fed meats, eggs, olive, coconut or grape seed oil and whole grain pastas (if you eat grains). Dont forget to supplement with high-quality probiotics and other anti-fungal foods and spices (garlic, turmeric, oregano and grapefruit.) You can also take a skin-soothing bath. A great combination is Epsom salts combined with some baking soda, lemon juice, a few drops of tea tree and clary sage essential oil and some dandruff shampoo. The ratios dont matter much. Keep your skin as clean and dry as possible, and wash your clothing and linens regularly in gentle detergents. No dryer sheets. The best approach uses multiple treatments, with a strong focus on a good diet, free of refined or junk foods with probiotics, digestive enzymes and antioxidants.

Mom And Me by Lizzie and PryceLizzie and Pryce answer your questions and give advice about aging concerns from a two-generational perspective. A mother and daughter team, Lizzie is a retired RN and health educator, and Pryce is a licensed psychotherapist in private practice who specializes in the care of elders and people with chronic illnesses. Dear Mom & Me, My wife and I planned and researched our retirement for five years. I now realize that the planning time was the fun time, not living the lifestyle. Six months into retirement, my wife was diagnosed with type two diabetes. Her doctor was very specific with the details and a nutritionist counseled us both. I have spent the last year going to doctors offices, taking her to the hospital and trying my best to help her with her diet and exercise. She refuses to cooperate with me and all of the others trying to help her. Is this how people normally behave with this condition? Phil Dear Phil, It is a mystery to me why some people refuse to help themselves when others are trying so hard to assist them. I once talked to a heart surgeon who complained about the exact same thing. He tried so hard to help his patients, and then they refused to help themselves e.g., not following his diet or exercise program that he prescribed. I would suggest you talk to your wifes doctor, tell him your problem, and he/she might have some suggestions. Lizzie Dear Phil, People react differently to new diagnoses. Bottom line for you, if your wife does not want to follow the advice of her medical team, that is her choice. I am sure she has been advised of the health consequences of non-compliance with her new diet restrictions. As much as you want for her to live successfully as many, many people do with diabetes, she needs to want it for herself. My advice for you would be to make sure that you go to an elder care attorney for financial planning to protect the family finances should her lack of compliance cause skyrocketing health care costs.

47 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 24, 2012 Dr. DaveObesity Vaccineby Dr. Dave HepburnJust great! Little Billy Bloggins came to school spreading his cold around and now were all going to get fat. That little cesspool of viruses sneezed in my direction and the next thing I knew, I was heading for the Ho Hos. Suppose I shouldve got that fat vaccine. Absolutely. That blubber booster has kept me as trim and thin as an Olsen twin. Obesity vaccine? Medical research has astonished us by revealing that infections have turned out to be the unlikely cause of several common diseases. Peptic ulcers, cervical cancer, rheumatic heart disease are just a few examples of illnesses actually caused by viruses or bacteria. In addition, bugs may well be responsible for Tourettes syndrome, OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disease), diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Don Cherry, heart attacks and now even obesity. The common human adenovirus, the same bug responsible for many routine infections like the cold, is the obesity culprit. Some strains of this virus have now been confirmed to increase the amount of fat in animal fat cells. Obese folk, it turns out, have a higher incidence of the adenovirus antibodies circulating about their bloodstream than skinny folk. While not known just how much of a role/roll the virus plays in the epidemic of obesity we are currently experiencing, we do know there has been a dramatic doubling of this disease, not unlike an infectious epidemic, in the last 30 years. Q: So, Dr. Dave, how do we avoid this adipogenic adenovirus? A: We can prevent most viruses by getting into the habit of washing our hands when were exposed to germy environments like malls, schools or Sudbury. Q: Will there be a vaccine against obesity? A: Possibly. But in the meantime, exercise and eat properly. Q: No vaccine yet!?! I hate dieting and frankly I find this news so depressing Im tempted to perform a little self medicating with Peanut Bustercillin. A: But that would be emotional eating, and you absolutely must avoid that. Q: Hey, Im an emotional guy, watch me smack you across the head with this fruit rollup. I hate diets. A: Well, then why not consider the no diet diet. According to the researchers in the food sciences faculty at BYU we should consider becoming intuitive eaters instead of calorie counters and fat measurers. Eat whatever you want but only when you need to. Eat when youre actually hungry, stop when youre not. According to the good folks at BYU its not so much what you eat, but when you eat. In other words, when you need to. Q: If I tried that, I would intuitively weigh about 600 pounds. I get intuitive every time I see a Krispy Kreme. Permanent weight loss requires attitude. Learning to eat to live rather than live to eat. We need to train ourselves how to be more in tune to use eating to satisfy hunger rather than to satisfy Jenny Craig. In fact, an Intuitive Eating Scale has been developed to help you recognize when to eat. How you score on this scale determines how you score on the intuitive bathroom scale. Professor Steven Hawks of BYU decided to try it himself, and without restrictive or restraining dieting, he lost 50 pounds in a year. Nothing to sneeze at. Like the column? Youll LOVE the book the Doctor is In(sane), available at Sanibel Island Bookshop. Contact Dr. Dave or read more at www.wisequacks. org. FDA-Approved Drug For Vision Loss Now AvailableFollowing a three-year year clinical study at Retina Health Center and other participating eye centers around the country, the FDA has approved the use of the injectable drug Lucentis for the treatment of diabetic macular edema. Diabetic macular edema occurs when fluid accumulates on or under the macular (the center of the retina) and causes it to thicken or swell. As swelling develops, blurring occurs and vision loss may progress over time. Until now, there has been no approved drug to treat diabetic macular edema. For the past 30 years, the condition has been treated with laser surgery with minimal reports of improvements in vision or with unapproved drugs such as Avastin or Triamcinolone. Diagnosed more than 12 years ago with diabetic macular degeneration, Fort Myers resident Jay Goldman has experienced significant improvement in his vision since participating in the threeyear clinical study for Lucentis at Retina Health Center. Im an avid reader and musician, said Goldman. But as my symptoms progressed, I could no longer read a book, play music or work on the computer. My vision was distorted and I was experiencing pain in my eyes. Following the Lucentis injections, Im able to see and read clearly again. The improvements are remarkable. The approval is based on results of two randomized, double-blind studies involving more than 750 patients. Patients in the study received a monthly injection of 0.5 mg or 0.3 mg of Lucentis or a placebo for 24 months, and were followed for 36 months. Patients who received Lucentis improved their eye chart test scores by at least 15 letters after 24 months of treatment. In addition, 54 percent of patients receiving the lower dose, and 62 percent of those on the higher dose achieved 20/40 vision or better. Lucentis is already approved to treat age-related macular degeneration and retinal vein occlusion. Retina Health Center and the Macular Degeneration Research Center were established in 2002 by Dr. Alexander M. Eaton, a long-time Southwest Florida resident who has been practicing ophthalmology in Lee and Collier counties for more than 17 years. Dr. Eaton has been the principal investigator for numerous studies to prevent and treat macular degeneration. For more information on the latest studies or to make an appointment, call 337-3337 in Fort Myers or 793-5200 in Naples, or visit www.retinahealthcenter. com.
