That would lower the cost from $108 to $72 for each permit. James Evans, director of natural resources, says this is an effort to improve compliance with the citys mangrove trimming and preservation program to encourage more property owners to obtain permits or exemption letters prior to trimming. Also, it better reflects staff time needed to process mangrove trimming permits. The permitting process provides staff an opportunity to meet with property owners and/or contractors prior to trimming to educate them on the (program) and to discuss proper trimming techniques and the value of mangroves to Sanibels ecology, said Evans. The public hearing is scheduled for 9:15 a.m. on Tuesday, October 2.
5 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 14, 2012San-Cap Optimist Club Fills The Freezer For FISHFISH of Sanibel volunteer and Optimist Club director Randy Carson brought the barren food pantry problem at the FISH Walk-In Center to the attention of the Sanibel-Captiva Optimists last week. A few phone calls later, the board approved a $500 donation and shopping spree to fill the freezer. Optimists Stan and Dani Howard headed out to Costco the next day to do just that. A generous and unexpected donation of an additional $250 was added on shopping day from Larry and Geri Howard of Fort Myers. With $750 in hand, the Howards SUV was filled to the brim with chicken, beef, fish, ham, juices plus much more. The Sanibel-Captiva Optimist Club was proud to help quickly resupply FISH and not only be friends of youth, but friends in service for the entire community.

Next years tentative budget totals $37.884 million, compared with the adopted budget of $47.674 million for 2012. Grants and other amounts included later resulted in an amended budget of $56.377 million last year. Operating expenditures are projected to be $26,552 million, down 21 percent from last year, when expenses totaled $33,445,376. Council members are still trying to wring out more savings. The focus for some time has been on reducing expenses and paying down debt, as the city sees lower income due to property values that fell almost 2 percent this year. The current assessed property value is $4.081 billion, compared with $4.159 billion last year. Values are down 21 percent since 2007. The owner of a home valued at $527,000 the island average will pay taxes of $1,127, about $6 less than last year because of lower property values. Added to that is $240 for three voted debt obligations. City taxes account for about 16 percent of the total tax bill. Council members want to cut even more, directing staff to shave a modest $162,000 off the books for the next fiscal year. Although it represents only a few dollars a year on the average property tax bill, Mayor Kevin Ruane says every penny counts. Sanibel is reaping the rewards from a $5 million pay-down of employee pension plans unfunded liabilities last year. Theres also $5.8 million budgeted last year but unspent for disaster and environmental initiative expense, plus a reduction of $1.26 million in capital expenditures. At a previous session, council set the millage rate at 2.1389, which is 53 percent lower than the rolled back rate. It can be reduced but not exceeded in the final budget. The rolled back rate represents the millage needed to generate the same revenue as last year. Ruane said he wants to lower it to 2.1 mills, a shade lower than last years 2.1038. A mill equals one penny per thousand dollars in assessed value. City debt is down from $17.8 million in 2006 to $10.6 million in 2011, and sewer debt is reduced from $51.2 million to $31.2 million in the same period. At the outset of the meeting, council restated its goals, voting 5-0. The goals are to continue the commercial redevelopment work plan that includes resort and retail properties; sustain and strengthen the citys financial stability; and improve water quality. City Manager Judie Zimomra has proposed that council set up a sinking fund for the five-year-old recreation center to retire the bonds, use for future operating costs and maintenance using a funds balance of about $1 million. The plan is to make $216,219 in annual contributions beginning in 2014. Council also voted to allocate $440,000 to the sinking fund, representing two years contributions, keep some as a balance and pay down rec center debt. The centers operating costs are projected at $2.088 million next year. Councilman Doug Congress said he would like to see similar sinking funds set up made for all city departments. The final budget hearing will take place on Tuesday, September 18 at 5:01 p.m. The highlights of the tentative budget include: Proposed millage of 2.1398 is .53 percent less than the rolled-back rate; City salaries remain flat for the fifth consecutive year; Full-time employees have been reduced from 142 in 2007 to 114 in FY13; The tentative budget assumes the city will spend $6,129,358 in disaster, insurance deductible, environmental and contingency reserves between now and the end of the current year. To date $260,642 has been used of the $6,390,000 in reserves, not including expenses related to Tropical Storms Debby and Isaac; With the reduction in solid waste tipping fees at the Lee County Solid Waste Facility residential curbside rates will decrease by 3 percent, commercial rates will be reduced by 1.6 percent and commercial dumpster rates will decrease by 5.8 percent; The tentative budget increases sewer fees by 1 percent but does not include the scheduled 3 percent reclaimed water rates indexing; In April 2012, building department fees were reduced by 25 percent. The planning departments variance application fee was reduced by 30 percent and the remodel with no increase in living area fee was reduced by 50 percent. The budget reflects these reductions; Recreation facility fees will remain flat, with nominal exceptions; In FY12, the city paid down $5 million of its pension plans unfunded actuarial accrued liability; The police department is restructured to realign with current needs by reinstating the police major position, eliminating one police lieutenant position and adding one police sergeant position to maintain supervisory capacity for a 24-hour, seven-day per week emergency response operation; The planning department is restructured to realign to current demands by eliminating an existing administrative secretary position through reduction-in-force and the addition of a planning technician at the same salary; City grant contributions to the Historical Village & Museum will decrease by $8,300 in FY13; City contributions to Community Housing Resources, Inc. are budgeted at $274,800, with a 3 percent escalator in FY14; The city will invest $400,000 in repairs to the Center 4 Life building on Library Way; The city will invest $118,834 on playground equipment, security video and drainage maintenance at the recreation center and ball fields; $2 million is allocated toward general government capital improvements. This includes $1 million of capital projects rolled over from the prior years and $958,096 for new projects. Budget Highlights

SANIBEL BICYCLE CLUB A Gallant Proposalsubmitted by Rhonda RosasMy husband and I were on the Captiva side of Blind Pass on Saturday, September 8 and noticed a sweet couple facing each other, taking pictures of their feet in the sand and shells. The young man put an engagement ring in the sand, without the young lady knowing it, and they took another picture. After taking the picture, the young man couldnt find the ring. He moved the sand with his feet and finally found it. The young lady excitedly said, Is that a ring in the sand? The next thing we knew, the young man picked up the ring and gallantly got down on one knee and proposed to the young lady right there on the beach next to the jetty. How romantic! She said, yes. Their names are Edward Pejka and Ashley Garris. In speaking to Edward, he said that they visit Captiva almost every weekend and wanted to make a lifetime memory by asking Ashley to marry him on the beach that they love so much.

9 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 14, 2012Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellThis week at Rotary Club we welcomed three outstanding Rotary District 6960 dignitaries District Governor Steve Schlueter, Governors Aide Pam Schlueter and Assistant Governor Victor Mayeron (of Mucky Duck fame). As part of the governors official duties, the governor and his aide visit a total of 44 clubs in the district covering a geographical area including eight counties: Collier, Lee, Hendry, Charlotte, Glades, Sarasota, Desoto and Manatee counties in Southwest Florida. The purpose of these visits of course is to introduce himself/herself and to lay the groundwork of what Rotary would like to accomplish during the year. This always starts off with introducing the Rotary International Presidents theme for the year. Rotary International President for 2012-13, Sakuji Tanaka of Japan, stated his theme as Peace Through Service. As Schlueter explained, The word peace has numerous connotations. Most of us would expect the meaning to be about the absence of conflict, but it could also mean peace of mind or peace from the strife of everyday living. Since Rotary is a global service organization, we have within our Rotary family realm extreme challenges that present themselves every day: clean and safe drinking water, pre-natal care, protection from disease, lack of education/ literacy, malnutrition, etc. Rotary reminds itself every year that we can accomplish outstanding things if we just try. Rotarys most successful effort has been in working on the eradication of polio throughout the world. In 1985, Rotary launched PolioPlus, an ambitious program to immunize the worlds children against polio. As a result, polio cases have dropped by 99 percent. With the help of the World Health Organization, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, UNICEF and the Gates Foundations $200 million matchchallenge (which Rotary accomplished), Rotary is only reporting cases of polio in Pakistan, Nigeria and Afghanistan and hopes that these countries will allow the immunization of their children. Polio is preventable if the vaccine is administered. In October of this year, a group of District Rotarians will be traveling to Nigeria and will be able to participate in a polio immunization day. This will be an amazing trip and an amazing personal journey toward helping stop the spread of additional polio cases in that country. Schlueter also wanted to introduce his governors theme for the year Having Fun, Helping Others. All work and no play doesnt make for much fun, said Schlueter, who is encouraging clubs to plan social events regularly. Getting to know each other provides a base trust and understanding of what we all bringlng to Rotary. Each Rotarian belongs for a reason, and each member has made a decision to join because of the goals and objectives that Rotary stands for. Our mission is simple we believe in working together to helping others. Service Above Self. Keeping with the theme Having Fun, Helping Others, our first social event of 2012-13 will be a Wine & Cheese event on Thursday, November 8 at Thistle Lodge from 5 to 7 p.m. Our members are encouraged to invite potential Rotary member candidates to this event, or anyone who might have an interest in finding out more about Rotary. Join us for some great wine and get to know an outstanding group of professionals in our community. Send an email to Shirley Jewell at srjewell@ embarqmail.com and I will put your name on the list of attendees. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets at 7 a.m. every Friday at Bistro At Beachview, 1100 Par View Drive. For further information regarding the Sanibel Rotary or Rotary International, call 337-1099.

13 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 14, 2012 CROW Case Of The Week: Dog Attackby Patricia MolloyAPeninsula cooter (Pseudemys peninsularis) was admitted to CROW after being attacked by a dog. It was not a fair fight. The turtle suffered multiple abrasions on its forelimbs that were relatively mild, but the canine did cause extensive damage to its shell. What concerned Dr. Heather the most, however, was the puncture wound on the patients back rear leg. The area was flushed regularly and packed with an SSD (Silver sulfadiazine). [SSD] works by killing the fungus or bacteria. Then we cover it in tape so that the turtle doesnt get the wound dirty when it goes outside to graze, stated Dr. Aundria. It was also given pain medication to make it more comfortable. While it didnt eat a lot his first day grazing, it was very excited to be outside and raced around CROWs turtle track. It ate a lot of greens overnight, but didnt seem to like the groceries that the clinic offered. After three weeks of intensive medical care at the clinic, it still wouldnt eat regularly only the occasional sea grapes when outside grazing. As the shell fracture had become more stable and the back leg had scabbed over nicely, Dr. Heather decided it was ready for release. It did not appear to be in pain any longer, so the person who rescued the turtle was contacted and she picked it up for release on August 29. Let this serve as a cautionary tale to keep your doggies on a leash and your kitties inside. While some animals may be domesticated, they still have the instinct to hunt and can unwittingly wreak havoc on our precious wildlife.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 14, 201214 Big Fall Schools Of Redfish Have Arrivedby Capt. Matt MitchellSeptember is my favorite month of the year on the water and it started off with a bang this week. For a few days, I was lucky enough to run into schools of hundreds of big redfish. These fish ate anything you could cast at them, from live baits to rattletraps and spoons. One day, we were able to stay with one of these big schools for over 30 minutes on the trolling motor as it worked its way around shallow clear water sandbars. This is an amazing thing and just a little taste of whats to come in the next few months. These schools of redfish were making their way towards Captiva Pass on the last few hours of a falling tide. In clear shallow water, there is no mistaking a big copper colored mass of redfish boiling the surface as they inhale every bait in their path. Once these fish fall off into deeper water, you can lose sight of them and can only hope they pop back up somewhere close. Being rigged and ready to go will give you the most shots at a school, if youre lucky enough to run across them. I like to have a few long-casting spoons and/ or rattletraps rigged up and ready to go, along with a few live bait free-line set-ups. Being quick on the draw can make all the difference when fishing for these reds. As quickly as they appear, they can disappear. Most of these breeding stock redfish are way over the maximum slot size of 27 inches and need to be handled and released with care. These large schools of roaming big redfish can be found just about anywhere throughout the sound for the next few months. Some places to look for them are the edges of sandbars, grass flats and oysters bars within close proximity to the passes. They can also be found on docks around the passes, though you will not see them up on the surface like you can in the shallows. There will also be a good amount of fish at Lighthouse Point that are caught from the Sanibel Pier every year, for you shorebound anglers. Once you locate them, fishing is wide open as they compete with each other to get to the bait first. Mangrove redfish action was not quite so hot this week as we were on the wrong tide pattern with daytime low water conditions. Moving out from the mangroves and fishing potholes, edges of grass flats and sandbars close to the usual high water redfish holes was the best option during these lower tides. When not searching for redfish schools in the northern sound, I spent most of my time fishing the edges of the bar that runs the whole outside edge of the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge from Tarpon Bay to Blind Pass. I like to fish this bar during the lowest periods of the tide. This was simple fishing, basically throwing cut mullet and ladyfish chunks to the white sandy contours and holes of the outer edge of the bar. If I did not get a bite in 10 minutes or so, I would slide a little further down the bar and re-anchor. This bar produced redfish up to 25 inches this week, though most were in the 18to 22-inch range. While working this whole outer edge of this sandbar, at times we would see a few schools of 10 to 20 redfish in twoto three-foot potholes. You could throw at the small schools and a hook-up was pretty much a sure thing. Some potholes and little run-offs right on top of the bar even held a few tailing reds, although they were just too shallow to reach from the boat. These super shallow water reds would be great to fish from a kayak or to get out of the boat and wade fish. I would be a little cautious wading here in the deeper water, as every day I see at least one big bull shark working the edge... the same way Im fishing it. As we get later into this week, the tides will be high during the day along with forecast southwest winds that will make the water even higher. This will be the perfect set-up for redfish action under the bushes and the bite should be on fire. Look for the redfish to be on the windblown side of the mangrove islands on the eastern side of the sound. Cover as much shoreline as quickly as possible until you locate them. For pure sight-fishing, redfish excitement in the next six to eight weeks is as good as it gets.Capt. Matt Mitchell has been fishing local waters since he moved to Sanibel in 1980. He now lives in St. James City and works as a back country fishing guide. If you have comments or questions email email@example.com.

In the morning, he found a scotch bonnet. Later in the evening that same day, he found a beautiful lions paw. Shells Found Luke Major Donald Mott of Montclair, New Jersey caught a 42-inch tarpon on the beach near Middle Gulf Drive while staying at Clam Shell. Mott said that after reeling in his tarpon, he received a round of applause from a crowd of spectators. It was his first tarpon caught in 21 years of Sanibel vacations.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 14, 201216 Sanibel Island resident Charles Sobczak caught a 60-pound cobia on Labor Day. The fish was landed over an offshore ledge using a large jig. Helping land the fish were Kevin Vertesch and Les Boyle of the Sanibel Island Fishing Club. Other fish caught that day included 13 red and gag grouper, a 45-pound amberjack, snapper and Bonita tuna. Julia Richards from Northern Virginia, a 20-year visitor to Sanibel, found this junonia in the afternoon low tide on September 8. Approximately 4-1/2 inches in length, the junonia is in perfect condition. Partially buried in the sand and under water, Richards originally thought she found a very large Scotch bonnet. She almost passed on picking up another Scotch bonnet to add to her shell collection, then thought, one more can never hurt. After the surprise find of a lifetime, Richards was quick to say, Ill never pass picking up another Scotch bonnet again!

17 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 14, 2012 Birds Eye ViewAlligator Night Watchmanby Mark Bird WestallLast week, I wrote about some of my earliest experiences as a naturalist on Sanibel. Here is another one that happened during my first month living on the island. As I have said earlier, I moved to Sanibel immediately after graduating from college in August 1977 and let it be known that I was ready to assist the good people of Sanibel in co-existing with the islands natural environment in any way I could. The next thing I knew, I was being handed a rope and told by George Weymouth (the same fellow I went snake hunting in the Everglades with during a tropical storm) to go catch an adult nuisance alligator that had eaten someones dog. But that wasnt all George got me involved with concerning gators. In 1977, there was still very little real knowledge about the maternal behavior of crocodilians. It had always been assumed that these reptilian creatures behaved in a similar fashion to most reptiles and laid their eggs in a nest and walked away to let the young fend for themselves. But a fascinating discovery had only recently been made about crocodiles in Africa when it was discovered that after the eggs were laid, the female guarded the nest throughout incubation and, eventually, helped the young hatch, carried the babies down to the water and protected the newborn crocs from predators. Well, George Weymouth and George Campbell (another well-known naturalist on Sanibel) wanted to find out if the same was true about our very own American alligator. Of course, the two Georges knew where there were a few gator nests on the island and they put together a plan to document what happened at hatching time. Their proposal was to build a blind close to an alligator nest, schedule volunteers to sit in the blind mostly at night (because it was expected that the young would hatch out under the cover of darkness), and capture the mothers behavior on camera utilizing night-vision lenses. Night-vision capability was a relatively new technology and not readily available to the general public at the time. But Mike Klein, a recent resident and future Mayor of Sanibel, had helped the military in developing this technology for their purposes and loaned George Campbell one of his personal lenses for this project. Needless to say, I became one of the volunteers and was scheduled to sit in total darkness every night for over a week from 9 to 11 p.m. trying to document a mother gator opening up her nest and carrying her young down to the water. Now remember, I had just moved down to Sanibel from Indiana where my only experience with wild animals had been raising an orphaned baby blue jay once and, another time, three baby rabbits. Also, I had actually raised a hatchling South American alligator (caiman) that I mail-ordered from Sears (you could do that in those days) for a high school biology project. But this was different. Here I was, sitting in a blind in the middle of a hot, steaming jungle, looking through a greencolored lens at an alligator nest only 15 feet away hoping to see the mother gator (who, I had been informed, would protect that nest VERY AGGRESSIVELY) come and do her thing. In the darkness, you couldnt see two feet in front of your face except through the camera lens and that view was not very clear. Would doing her thing include attacking that stupid human sitting quietly so close to her nest? I was assured by the two Georges that I would probably be just fine, but to add a little more security, they set up a row of tin cans with rocks inside hanging from a string surrounding the blind so if the mother gator charged I would have, at least, one second of warning. Ha! Thanks a lot! Of course, I have since become more educated and experienced about how alligators behave around people. I have learned that, actually, alligators are usually non-aggressive towards humans. Yes, you have to be more careful if there is a big, bull alligator around and females guarding nests and young will defend those young quite vehemently. But what makes gators really dangerous is when people feed them. Otherwise, alligators and humans should be able to co-exist together relatively peacefully. But sitting in that blind during my first few weeks on Sanibel, my instinct and lack of education was telling me that I was in serious danger. I just knew that the mother would come charging out of the darkness to protect her young and tear me to shreds. Once, the rocks in the cans began to rattle and I just about had a heart attack. It turned out to be an opossum. Phew! Unfortunately (or maybe, fortunately), the mother gator never showed up when I or anyone else was in the blind. continued on page 32 ZAGAT ZAGAT.COM R ated by : Fish Tacos! Book Signing Event!Ft.

19 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 14, 2012 Plant SmartFishtail Palmby Gerri ReavesFishtail palms (Caryota mitis) common name refers to the triangular leaf segments that resemble frilly goldfish tails. Entire leaves, or fronds, can be as long as nine feet. A native of Southeast Asia, the fishtail palm typically reaches about 18 feet tall, but specimens often grow to 25 feet or more. This attractive ornamental tree is popular as a screen plant and patio tree. Also called clustering fishtail palm, this clump-growing tree has a moderate growth rate and low salt tolerance. It will thrive in full sun or partial shade, but needs plenty of moisture and good drainage. Give it plenty of room, for unless controlled, the clumps will widen to 12 feet or more, thus its reputation as aggressive. The inflorescences bring to mind streaming beaded tresses. After the inconspicuous creamy flowers appear, the small rounded fruit form, eventually turning reddish or black. Flowering and fruiting signal the beginning of the end for the stem, which dies to be replaced by another. One note of caution: The fruit contains calcium oxalate crystals that can severely irritate the skin or have toxic effects, if ingested.

20 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 14, 2012 School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, Since my daughter has entered ninth grade, she has a lot more homework. She used to be able to finish it quickly but now it takes much longer. We seem very disorganized about homework because it has never been a big part of our lives prior to this year. She is frustrated and her grades are starting to slip. What can I do to improve this situation? Andrea C., Fort Myers Andrea, You are describing a very common problem that brighter students experience. Since school and homework have been so easy for them for so many years, often times brighter students do not develop good study habits. Once they encounter more challenging academic work, they struggle because they have not developed the appropriate skills. This is a topic you should discuss with your daughter. You might liken this situation to athletics; athletes must work hard and train to develop their skills as must good students. Bright students need to learn how to approach homework and studying in a sequential manner that results with the academic material learned and the required work completed. Research tells us that beginning with middle school, the benefits of homework increase significantly. Aside from reinforcing academic content, homework helps children learn how to plan and organize tasks, manage time, make choices and problem solve, all skills that contribute to success in the adult world. According to Homework: A Guide For Parents by Peg Dawson, there are two key approaches parents can use to reduce homework hassles. The first is to establish clear routines around homework, including when and where homework gets done and setting up daily schedules for homework. You and your daughter need to choose a location where homework should be completed, set up a homework center with all the supplies that she might need such as access to a computer, writing utensils, etc. Choose a time that the homework will be done. Sometimes an audible timer is useful for students to keep their mind on the task at hand. Even with high school students, parents need to become involved by asking what the homework is, and if the student needs help. Some students need a motivator to make homework more gratifying. In that case, a simple reward such as extra time with friends, parents or an extended curfew, might be enough to motivate them. Other students may need a more elaborate reward system, with points and rewards to buy with points earned. For further information on setting up a reward program, refer to this website: www.nasponline.org/resources/home_ school/homework.aspx. Its always better to start homework earlier than later in the day, but do allow for some down time and a snack immediately after school. Please allow the student to have a voice in making decisions about some of the homework issues. By allowing this, the student may feel that she has more control of the situation and may have more ownership in the activity. If these suggestions are not successful, scheduling a meeting with your daugh ters teachers may be helpful. They will have good suggestions for you. 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.

21 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 14, 2012 From page 1Duck Stamp Winner At Ding DaysHautman will make a special appearance at JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge during Ding Darling Days on Saturday, October 20, officially declared Conservation Art Day. Besides talking about his technique and experiences, he will be on hand to sign duck stamps, which are on sale in the refuge nature store. Federal duck stamps, particularly signed editions, have become highly collectible among art and conservation enthusiasts worldwide. Only elite wildlife artists win the annual duck stamp competition against about 200 other artists; very few take the honor more than three times during their careers. The only other to be able to boast that accomplishment includes Joes brother, Jim. In fact, the famous Hautman brothers (Bob is number three) have racked up 10 Federal Duck Stamps amongst them. We are always happy when one of the Hautman boys wins, because besides being such capable artists, they are always a pleasure to host at the refuge, said Sanibel bird sculptor Jim Sprankle, two-time FDS judge. Hautman will appear with Federal Junior Duck Stamp (JDS) winner Christine Clayton from Ohio, and three-time Florida JDS winner Jefferson Jones from Lehigh Acres starting at 1 p.m. on October 20. The day will celebrate both the 20th anniversary of the JDS, hatched right here on Sanibel Island, and the 30th anniversary of the Ding Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge (DDWS), which hosts Ding Darling Days. Thanks to local collector of Hautman works, Don Wildman, the brothers original duck stamp portraits will also be on display that day as a rare exhibit displayed nowhere else in the world.

There is a sincere thought that comes to mind as I sit here and think back on all that we have accomplished as a business: we simply wouldnt be here without the ongoing support from our fellow islanders and customers. We began as a single employee business in 1988, then known by the name of Sanibel Repair Service, and operated by my father Dan Hayes. Today, we have a staff of 11 individuals, and we make it our goal to provide our favorite islands with the best service around. In addition, we were able to create a sister company in 1992. We are passionate about our work and focus on doing a quality, reliable and affordable service, and we are grateful for your patronage. Bryan Hayes is a Sanibel air conditioning contractor.

His biography of Peter the Great earned a Pulitzer Prize. He is a respected authority on World War I military history and is a past president of the Authors Guild. Massie was born in Lexington, Kentucky, grew up in Nashville, Tennessee, graduated from Yale University, and was a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University. He served as an air intelligence officer aboard aircraft carriers in the Mediterranean and the Pacific for four years. Massies interest in the Imperial family arose with the birth of his oldest son, who was born with hemophilia a hereditary disease that also afflicted Tsar Nicholass son, Peter Bergen Will Shortz Judy Collins Robert K. Massie From page 1Coastal Cleanupcheck in and pick up their Coastal Cleanup data cards, trash bags and plastic gloves. Data cards are used to record the type of litter collected during the Coastal Cleanup.Items typically found on the islands beaches include plastic and styrofoam cups and containers, cans and bottles, cigarette butts, broken chairs and umbrellas, food wrappers, clothing, monofilament fishing lines and hooks. Each year, volunteers pick up close to four million cigarettes and plastic filters, topping the worldwide marine litter list. Plastic bags come in second with a million-plus collected. Trash in the ocean is one of the most widespread problems threatening our waterways and wildlife, and it is all preventable. The great news is that every year, the amount of litter we collect on Sanibel and Captiva gets smaller and smaller... but that doesnt mean that the debris we find is any less harmful, said Serage-Century. All day and every day, this community is very responsible. Its just the way of life we want to be a part of. In 2011, approximately 90 volunteers logged 270 hours during Coastal Cleanup on Sanibel, Captiva and the Causeway Islands. Among the groups participating in the effort are students from Lexington Middle School and The Canterbury School, as well as Southwest Florida Addiction Services (SWFAS).After checking in at the SCCF Nature Center, volunteers will be given an assignment area on Sanibel where to collect litter. Participants are asked to bring their own bottled water as well as sunscreen, hats and comfortable clothing. If there is a particular area you and your group would like to work, call Dee Serage-Century at 472-2329 ahead of time to request it.At the conclusion of the Coastal Cleanup, volunteers will return their data cards, deposit trash gathered in the SCCF dumpster, and have some lunch and refreshments on the Nature Centers porch until noon. If you have any questions, want to select your clean up spot early or get your data cards ahead of time, call 4722329. Pam Rambo found this balloon and ribbon tangled up in sargassum weed.

25 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 14, 2012Alexei. His first book Nicholas and Alexandra (1969) remained on The New York Times Bestseller List for 46 weeks, was translated into 17 languages, and made into a film nominated for nine Academy Awards. Mr. Massies next book, Journey, written with his first wife, was an account of their familys experience with hemophilia. Journey was followed by Peter The Great: His Life and World, which won a Pulitzer Prize for Biography. Massie also wrote Dreadnought: Britain, Germany and the Coming of the Great War, The Romanovs: The Final Chapter and Castles of Steel: Britain, Germany and the Winning of the Great War at Sea His most recent book is Catherine The Great: Portrait of a Woman, published in 2011, for which he won the first Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Nonfiction. With over six million books sold worldwide, Massies accomplishments also include that he has twice been a professor at Princeton University, has served as the Mellon Professor of Humanities at Tulane University, and was long-serving trustee of Vassar College. He has been a juror for the Pulitzer Prize for History, for the Pulitzer Prize for Biography, and a judge for the National Book Award. Peter Bergen Monday, February 11 Peter Bergens most recent book, Manhunt: The Ten-Year Search for Bin Laden From 9/11 to Abbottabad, was released in May 2012. One of the few Westerners to interview Osama bin Laden, journalist Peter Bergen is the foremost authority on foreign policy, national security and the new generation of terrorism. Bergen wrote the New York Times best-seller The Longest War: The Enduring Conflict between America and Al-Qaeda, which has been called one of the most important accounts on the subject to appear in years by the New York Times and won the Washington Institute for Near East Policys 2011 Gold Award. He also wrote Holy War, Inc., which has been translated into 18 languages, and The Osama bin Laden I Know. In his 2011 National Geographic Channel documentary, The Last Days of Osama bin Laden, Bergen conducts rare interviews with CIA agents, Navy SEAL operatives and a Black Hawk pilot, revealing how the U.S. gathered the intelligence needed to pull off the surprise attack that killed the worlds most notorious terrorist. In 2006, CNN produced a two-hour documentary, In The Footsteps of bin Laden, based on The Osama bin Laden I Know, and Bergen served as a producer for the Emmynominated film. Bergen has written prolifically on al Qaeda and terrorism for a variety of publications, including the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, The New Republic and TIME. He serves as the director of the national security studies program at the New America Foundation in Washington, D.C. and as a research fellow at New York Universitys Center on Law and Security. Judy Collins Wednesday, March 6 Few artists have as much staying power as music icon Judy Collins. She has celebrated over 50 years of recording with 37 albums, top ten hits, Grammy wins and gold and platinum status. An innately creative individual, Collins is known for her songs, books and watercolors. She wrote the bestseller Sanity and Grace, which focuses on suicide recovery and is based on her own experience with the tragic loss of her sons life. In Morning Noon and Night: Living the Creative Life she offers an enthralling look into her creative mind, carefully describing her approach to the creative process. Her newest book is the 2011 memoir Sweet Judy Blue Eyes, an evocative, deeply personal account of her life. The definition of a living legend, Collins has had a major influence on culture over decades. Her books and music have inspired millions. From the time she discovered folk music and was signed to Elektra in 1961, to her books, albums, television specials and work with UNICEF, Collins has always remained a creative and vibrant artist.

But youll have to present some hard facts and figures if you hope to persuade those who make the big decisions to support you. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Keep those bright Bulls eyes focused on the project at hand. Avoid distractions. Therell be lots of time for fun and games later. Expect to get welcome news this weekend. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You soon might have to decide about moving a relationship from its current status to another level. Dont let anyone influence your decision. It must be yours and yours alone. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You finally can get off that emotional roller coaster and get back to focusing on your goals without interruptions through the rest of the week. A nice change is due by the weekend. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Trying to make an impression on some people runs into a bit of a snag at first, but it all works out. An old and almost forgotten personal matter once again needs attention. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A rise in your energy level helps you finish an especially demanding task. Take some time now to spend with family and friends before starting a new project. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) This is a good time to re-establish contact with trusted former associates who might be able to offer good advice regarding that career change youve been contemplating. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your resourcefulness combined with a calm, cool approach help you work your way out of a knotty situation and avoid a potentially serious misunderstanding. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A calm, quiet period allows you to recharge your energies. But youll soon be ready to saddle up and gallop off in pursuit of your goals. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Family matters need your attention. Check things out carefully. There still might be unresolved tensions that could hinder your efforts to repair damaged relationships. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Its a good time to take a stand and show as much passion on your own behalf as you do when arguing for the rights of others. You might be happily surprised by the reaction. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You bring sense and sensitivity to a confusing situation. Things soon settle down, leaving you free to enjoy a weekend of fun and relaxation with friends and family. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a talent for being able to perceive possibilities where others see only problems. On Sept. 22, 1776, in New York City, 21-year-old Nathan Hale, a captain in the Continental Army, is executed by the British for spying. Before being hanged, legend holds that Hale said, I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country. There is no historical record to prove that Hale actually made this statement. On Sept. 18, 1793, George Washington lays the cornerstone to the United States Capitol building. The building would take nearly a century to complete, as architects came and went, the British set fire to it, and it was called into use during the Civil War. On Sept. 23, 1846, German astronomer Johann Gottfried Galle discovers the planet Neptune. The blue gas giant, which has a diameter four times that of Earth, has eight known moons and a ring system containing three bright and two dim rings. On Sept. 21, 1938, a powerful Category 3 hurricane slams into Long Island and southern New England. Charlie Pierce, a junior forecaster in the U.S. Weather Bureau, was sure that the hurricane was heading for the Northeast, but the chief forecaster overruled him. All told, 700 people were killed by the hurricane. On Sept. 19, 1959, in one of the more surreal moments in the history of the Cold War, Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev explodes with anger when he learns he cannot visit Disneyland. Government authorities feared that the crowds would pose a safety hazard. On Sept. 17, 1965, four adventurous Englishmen arrive at a motor show in Germany after crossing the English Channel by Amphicar, the worlds only mass-produced amphibious passenger car. On land, the cars used a four-speed-plus-reverse manual transmission. In the water, they used a transfer case that had two speeds: forward and backward. On Sept. 20, 1973, in a highly publicized Battle of the Sexes tennis match, top womens player Billie Jean King, 29, plays Bobby Riggs, 55, a former No. 1-ranked mens player. Riggs, a self-proclaimed male chauvinist, had boasted that women were inferior. King beat Riggs 6-4, 6-3, 6-3. It was American singer Josh Groban who made the following sage observation: Theres no half-singing in the shower, youre either a rock star or an opera diva. If youre considering having a child sometime in the near future, you might want to consider this: Its said that the cost of caring for a newborn during its first year of life is more than $6,000. In 1986, actor and director Clint Eastwood took on a new and unfamiliar role: political candidate. He ran for mayor of Carmel, Calif. He defeated the incumbent mayor in a landslide, and he kept the position for two years. His salary? A whopping $200 per week. Often these days youll see someone carrying a tiny dog around with them, but you might be surprised to learn that this is not an entirely new fashion. In ancient Rome and Greece it was not uncommon for a noble lady to carry her tiny Maltese dog around in the sleeve of her robe. In the early days of motion pictures, Will H. Hays became known as the Czar of Hollywood. He presided over the earliest incarnation of the MPAA, charged with ensuring the morality of movies. Some of the changes the so-called Hays Office insisted upon were removing the image of a cows udder from a Walt Disney cartoon; and removing any direct reference to adultery in the 1935 adaptation of the Tolstoy novel Anna Karenina -despite the fact that Annas affair is at the heart of the novel. Those who study such things say that a womans sense of smell tends to be better than that of a man. I think that I am better than the people who are trying to reform me. -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe THIS WEEK IN HISTORY STRANGE BUT TRUE THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

30 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 14, 2012 PGA TipsYour Next Golf Shotby Matt Oakley, PGA Golf ProfessionalOne of the hardest things about playing golf well is that you must have a short memory. Your last shot can not affect your next golf shot. For example, if you hit your last drive to the left, you can not assume the next one is going to go left. If you hit your last 7-iron chunky and the divot flew farther than the ball, you can not think that the next one will do the same thing. Here are some tips to be able to approach your next golf shot as if it were the first one you ever hit: 1. Once you have selected the club you want to hit with, try to visualize the shot. What is it going to fly like? What is it going to feel like? What is it going to sound like? Imagine the ball flying perfectly towards your target. Recall other good shots you have hit with that club. Then, focus on the moment and hit the shot. After you have hit it, watch it the entire way until it has stopped. Your brain is a computer and will store all of the information about that shot that you can recall later if it was a good one and completely forget if it was a bad one. 2. Swing correction is for the practice tee and the golf course is for playing golf. Do not try to correct your swing in the middle of the round. Make swing changes during practice and play what you brought that day to the golf course. This allows you to be completely target focused on the course. Play golf on the golf course, not golf swing. 3. Remember the good ones and forget the bad ones. Jack Nicklaus gave one of the best interviews I have ever seen one time during the Masters many years ago. A reporter asked him what he was thinking about when he had a long birdie putt on one of the last holes with a one-shot lead and whether he was afraid he would 3-putt it. Nicklaus said he wasnt afraid because he had never 3-putted in a big situation in his life. The reporter said that it wasnt true, that Nicklaus had 3-putted the 72nd hole of the U.S. Open a few years back that cost him the tournament. Nicklaus replied that he did not recall doing that. The reporter asked how he could not remember such a mistake. Nicklaus said that he just doesnt remember anything bad ever happening to him on a golf course. I call this selective memory. Thats the mentality that we all need to have when playing golf. So, the next time you are playing golf, remember to take each shot as though it were your first one, visualize the shot, recall a good one from the past and let it fly! SPORTS QUIZ 1.

ANSWERS Despite Dismal Year For The Twins And Red Sox, Prospects Offer Hope For Future Improvementby Ed FrankIts been a dismal, disappointing season for our two spring training home teams, the Boston Red Sox and the Minnesota Twins particularly the Red Sox but there is hope for the future when analyzing the top Minor League prospects for both teams. First, the Twins: The Twins have four players ranked among the top 100 prospects in all of baseball and unquestionably their farm system is moving upward. Third-baseman Miquel Sano is No. 21; outfielder Byron Buxton, No. 30; outfielder Aaron Hicks, No. 67; and secondbaseman Eddie Rosario, No. 88. Only Sano and Hicks were ranked in the top 100 at the start of the year. Using a point system based on the rankings of prospects, the Twins farm system improved from 23rd to 14th in the Majors. The 19-year-old Sano, who is likely to play here next season for the Fort Myers Miracle, had an outstanding 2012 season at Low A Beloit, batting .258 with 28 homers and 100 RBIs in 129 games. He was named the Midwest League Prospect of the Year. Buxton, just 18 years old, was the Twins first-round draft pick this year (No. 2 overall) and is the highest-ranked prospect out of the 2012 Major League Draft. He began his professional career this season with the Twins two Rookie League teams where he hit a combined .248 with five homers and 11 stolen bases in 48 games. Hicks was Minnesotas first-round selection four years ago and has advanced steadily through their Minor League system. At Double-A New Britain this year, he batted .286, scored 100 runs and stole 32 bases. He had a breakout year and set our Double-A record there in terms of runs scored, said Jim Rantz, the Twins director of the Minor Leagues. He moved up five spots from 72 to 67 as a result. The fourth top 100 prospect, Rosario, batted .296 with 70 RBIs in 95 games at Class A Beloit. Like Sano, look for Rosario to advance to High A Fort Myers in 2013. While none of these top four prospects are pitchers, Rantz said 10 of the top 20 prospects in the Twins farm system are pitchers. The lack of consistent pitching was the major downfall for the Minnesota Twins this season. Now to the Red Sox: The top three prospects in the Red Sox farm system are shortstop Xander Bogaerts, pitcher Matt Barnes and outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. And the Red Sox farm system grew stronger through Bostons blockbuster trade with the Los Angeles Dodgers that brought highly-coveted right-handed pitchers Allen Webster and Rubby De La Rosa to Bostons minor leagues. Bogaerts was promoted to Double-A Portland late in the season. Only 19 years old, hit .326 with five homers in just 92 at bats at Portland. Barnes, a fire-balling right-hander out of the University of Connecticut, pitched briefly at Class A Salem, where he notched 91 strikeouts in just 93 innings pitched. Bradley, a speedy outfielder, could replace Jacoby Ellsbury in the Red Sox outfield if Ellsbury departs during the off-season. Like Minnesota, the Red Sox have a strong farm system that is ranked ninth among the 30 Major League teams. 9100 College Pointe Ct., Fort Myers, FL 33919 www.sbshlaw.com | 239-334-1141In which state should you base your estate plan?

31 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 14, 2012 Youth Soccer Scholarship Fund Helps Island KidsThe newly-created Sanibel Youth Soccer Scholarship Fund will continue the leagues mission to provide 10 children with the opportunity to play soccer this year. Thanks to an initial $600 contribution from the Rotary Club of Sanibel-Captiva, the fund will help island children pay for uniforms and equipment for the fall soccer season that begins on October 1. The scholarships will be awarded based on financial need. Kids need sports like soccer to lead active and healthy lifestyles and a contribution to the fund is a great way to cheer them on, said John Grey, Rotary Club president. It would be a shame for some children to be excluded if their families financial situation prevented them from participating in this great program. Craig Holston, president of the soccer league, explained that Rotarys leadership donation will go a long way to boost participation this year. We hope other generous contributors will help us grow the fund so we can help more children in the future, Holston said. Last year, nearly 200 children participated in the soccer program on Sanibel. With the help of the fund and organizations like Rotary, we hope to break that record this year, added Holston. For information about the fund or to register a child for the fall soccer program, contact Craig Holston via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline to register for the fall recreation season is Monday, September 17.

Divorce is often a nightmare which disrupts all aspects of ones life. Getting through it is difficult enough, but then most new divorcs often dont take the final steps to shore up their estate plan. That is why today were going to review a ten-point checklist for every newly divorced person especially those who have kids at home: 1. Make sure the life insurance is upto-date and that your new beneficiaries are listed properly. Dont name kids as beneficiaries! This will put the insurance proceeds straight into a conservatorship where a judge will supervise their financial lives until they are 18, then theyll get the proceeds in one fell swoop. 2. Create a trust which will sidestep the probate process, keep the management of the kids assets private and in your control, and prevent the loss of those assets to your kids future creditors and predators and reduce the estate taxes that may take valuable resources away. When creating that trust, name a trustee that will have your kids best interests at heart, and can work well with their surviving spouse your ex-spouse. 3. Dont leave your assets to your kids outright and dont leave too much. There is nothing more damaging to a childs life purpose than having too much disposable money at their fingertips. 4. Dont cheap out on an estate plan. Whitney Houston did that. Apparently, she went online to create a will that is a disaster. It doesnt protect her assets from her daughters creditors, estate taxes and probate. Spend the money to get it done correctly. It isnt really that much in the scheme of things. 5. Make sure you have enough disability insurance. Nothing will diminish your wealth and put you in the poor house quicker than not being able to earn a regular income. Most people dont carry nearly enough disability insurance and social security disability in all likelihood wont cover a fraction of what you need to maintain any semblance of your current lifestyle. 6. Name a guardian in your will for your minor children and ask your ex who he has named. You might be able to agree on who would care for your kids if you both should die. If you and your ex disagree on who should fill that role, there could be a nasty court fight that would only eat into what you are leaving your children. 7. Check to make sure all life insurance and retirement account designations are up to date. You may still have your ex named as the primary beneficiary. Under many state laws your ex may be treated as predeceasing you even if they are so named but this may lead to other problems. You dont want minor children to be named as beneficiaries see item #1 above and many plan agreements default to your estate if you have no alternate beneficiary named. In the case of IRAs and 401(k) accounts, this will result in the immediate recognition of taxable income of the balance of the plan. 8. Have your ex-spouse sign an ERISA waiver. In some cases, particularly if you die before you are remarried, your exspouse may maintain rights to your retirement accounts unless they sign certain waivers after your divorce. 9. Update your health care directives such as your living will and health care surrogates, and dont name your children as your agent unless they are over the age of 18 and are emotionally mature enough to deal with the weighty decisions that come with the territory. 10. Before you remarry, get good legal advice. Unless you enter into a good nuptial agreement, your new spouse may have rights to your home and assets even if you dont include him or her in your will. If you have created a whole estate plan to take care of your children, then it behooves you to protect that plan from those who could thwart it. Once youve completed your divorce it makes sense to visit with competent estate planning counsel to ensure that your intentions and assets are protected. Craig R. Hersch.

Hersch, Florida Bar Board Certified Wills, Trusts & Estates Attorney; CPA Superior InteriorsColor Your Bedroom... Beautifullyby Jeanie TinchConfused about selecting a color scheme for your master bedroom? Consider these quick tips, so that your ultimate selection will be the perfect choice. Use color unequally for better color proportion and balance. While this may sound like a complete contradiction, it truly works. Consider a deep, dramatic shade to create an accent wall behind your bed. Then, by coloring your adjoining walls a lighter hue of the same color, you will have instantly created a more visually interesting space. Use lighter colors to create a feeling of spaciousness. Paler shades naturally reflect light rays instead of absorbing them. A lighter color palette would be particularly important if your bedroom isnt as large as youd like. By coloring the walls in paler hues, youll actually be giving your bedroom a more expansive feel. Use bright, strong colors to create a warm, cozy feeling. This color tip is especially important if you have a large, spacious bedroom with very high ceilings. Warmer colors tend to humanize large spaces, making them more livable and welcoming. Pay close attention to the rooms architectural features and details. To emphasize interesting and desirable architectural features, like a tray ceiling, enhance the area with stronger, contrasting colors. Conversely, to camouflage architectural defects, a more neutral paint color of the same tonal value will help to blend your walls, ceiling and floors and hide those unhappy features. It is advisable to select colors for upholstery, bedding and drapery fabrics first and select your wall, ceiling and floor colors by pulling your favorite color from your fabrics. While paint is the first thing you do, it is the last thing you select. Remember to take your wood tones into consideration they are also a very important part of your overall color scheme.

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, I am fed up being treated as if I am an inconvenience at my medical center. I would leave in a flash, but no one else around here takes Medicare. I am not a nuisance, having been their only once in a year. I called and, after going through all of their hoops on their telephone system, I finally reached a live one. She asked my name and birth date and then asked, Why do you want to see the doctor? Whats wrong with you? The earliest appointment was in six weeks, and then she said, If youre not satisfied, call 911 or go to the hospital emergency. It is bad enough being old, but being abused along with it is getting hard to take. Is it like this where you live? Doris Dear Doris, Medical care is an industry, a very complex industry. To stay in business, medical practices need more revenue coming in than expenses going out. Unfortunately, the strategies for reducing expenses include reducing the number of support staff, using technology (i.e. phone routing systems) to increase productivity, minimum education requirements for staff and increasing the number of patients seen per day. What all of this seems to mean to patients is that we have become work units, tasks and to some office staff interruptions in their productivity. To the credit of some offices I have found, the physicians and support staff have found a way to practice medicine and run a business in a way that does not forget the patient. I hope you can find a similar office. Pryce Dear Doris, Exactly the same this seems to be the way modern medical offices are going. No longer will physicians know our name or even care because it is only a business. However, some people do have physicians who do care, will call on the phone and run their offices the old fashioned way. My husband goes out of state and has a team of physicians who are wonderful, and its no wonder Johns Hopkins has been rated number one for patient care for about the last 20 years. Lizzie Lizzie and Pryces email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Barrier Island Title Services, Inc. (239) 472-3688Youll Appreciate the Difference Got A Problem? Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: Can stress cause Fibromyalgia? I have not been diagnosed, but I have a lot of stress and some symptoms.A: Stress is certainly a major contributing factor to Fibromyalgia. This syndrome affects the muscles and soft tissue. You may already be aware of the symptoms, which include chronic muscle pain and stiffness, fatigue, decreased energy, sleep problems and painful trigger points on specific parts of the body. Some report difficulty with memory and performing simple mental tasks. It would be helpful to rule out that you have this, so make an appointment with your physician and have a complete physical including blood work. If you are diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, one of the major ways to manage Fibromyalgia pain is to manage your stress. You may have to look at some lifestyle changes to lower your stress levels. Meditation, yoga and relaxation therapy have all been known to help those with the symptoms. Since pain is a primary complaint, some pain management would be helpful. Seek some nutritional counseling and make sure you are on an appropriate eating plan. There are even support groups to attend to help you cope if indeed you have been diagnosed. One of the best natural approaches for treatment is through physical exercise. Be sure to discuss with your doctor all of the options in treating Fibromyalgia so you can benefit in all ways.

One of those friends is renowned marine wildlife artist and conservationist Guy Harvey. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) recognized Harvey and his company last week in Tampa for their support of FYCCN programs that get kids involved in conservation-based recreation. We are proud and excited to partner with FYCCN in furtherance of our marine educational programs and goals, said Dr. Harvey. This partnership will help us to teach and develop the next generation of responsible Florida sportsmen and women. Steve Stock, president of Guy Harvey Inc. and the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation, both headquartered in Davie, presented on behalf of Harvey a check for $50,000 to the Wildlife Foundation of Florida to help fund FYCCN saltwater fishing camps that infuse in youths conservation ethics and a sense of stewardship related to the sport of fishing. The importance of developing in our children a strong personal connection with nature and a conservation ethic to match cannot be overstated, said Stock. The future of the states natural resources depends on it. The Florida Youth Conservation Centers Network is jointly sponsored by the FWC and the Wildlife Foundation of Florida. The FYCCN is a growing network of youth centers that teach kids basic principles of conservation and outdoor ethics, while developing traditional outdoor skills that include fishing, shooting sports, boating, wildlife viewing and more.

Try Adrenal Supplementsby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: What an awful year 2012 has been, Im stressed and tired. I cry easily. Its not who I am! Can you help me? VD, Broomfield, Colorado Sounds like youve exhausted your adrenals glands. You can tell if you have this particular energy pattern: Difficulty rising You dont really wake up until 10 a.m. You feel better after lunch You have an afternoon low between 3 and 5 p.m. Youre pretty good after 6 or 7 p.m. Youre tired by 8 to 10 p.m. but resist going to bed If you fight it, and stay up, you catch your second wind around 11 p.m., lasting until 1 or 2 a.m. If this sounds like you, its probably hypoadrenia, also known as adrenal burnout or adrenal insufficiency. Adrenal glands pump out cortisol hormone to help you deal with stress. If you have one big stressor (such as grief) or a million micro-stressors; then over time, your adrenal glands stop producing adequate cortisol hormone. You will drag yourself through each day never knowing what is wrong with you. Physicians who fail to recognize this disorder assume you have depression and prescribe antidepressants or stimulants. Only when a proper diagnosis of adrenal insufficiency is made can you buy natural herbs to support adrenal gland health, or take a prescription medication called hydrocortisone, which restores natural cortisol. Many people with undiagnosed hypoadrenia, soothe their hormonal imbalance by binge eating or drinking, alcoholism or drug addiction. A few other signs of hypoadrenia include the need to lie down after emotionally stressful times, muscle weakness, mild depression, fatigue, craving foods high in salt or fat, increased menopausal or PMS symptoms, more allergies, lightheadedness upon rising, frequent sighing, using caffeine or sugar to wake up, low libido and apathy. Some find they feel better after spending the night with a friend, or getting out of the house. As I see it, the biggest problem is that adrenal fatigue causes hypothyroidism, causing a cascade of other terrible symptoms. And no amount of thyroid medication will correct hypothyroidism, unless you simultaneously nourish your adrenal glands with adaptogenic herbs. Adrenal hormone testing is simple. I recommend Diagnos-Techs, ZRT Labs or Neuroscience Labs, because those three labs offer saliva testing in a four-point manner. This means you provide four saliva samples, morning, noon, evening and midnight. Herbs and vitamins that support adrenal health include DHEA, schizandra, eleuthero, rhodiola, ashwaghanda, ginseng, turmeric, theanine, astragalus, beta sitosterol, ginger and B vitamins, especially pantethine. continued on page 39

Regardless, for those of you who are tweetless, here is an update of our precious sought after tweets, which are out there in the Twitterverse along with herpes and Charlie Sheen (redundant?) Determining which wisequack has written which tweet is rather easy. If you find the tweet witty, informative, cultured and on a higher overall intellectual plane, then that would be one of us. If, however, the tweet appears to be written by a 6-year-old on Red Bull and jujubes, then that would be the other of us who is not used to writing newspaper columns and has no photo attached to this column. Good luck. Headline: Addiction to video games causing kids to skip after school physical activities. Great! Skipping burns 675 calories an hour. Tattoos are starting to replace MedicAlert bracelets as a way to warn about a medical condition... Ozzy Osbourne must be really sick. Studies of the use of vitamin K2 for Parkinsons disease got off to a shaky start but now appear promising. Big hill to climb for a vitamin. Dermatologists are threatening job action in a pay dispute with the government... sounds like a rash decision. FDA approves first weight loss drug in 13 years! Called Lorcaserin. Take 200 gelcaps before every meal with Mentos and Diet Coke. Its predicted that half of all Americans will be obese by 2030... my guess is that it will start with the bottom half. To combat obesity, scientists are trying to convert energy-storing white fat to energy-burning brown fat. Might be quicker to just get a tan? FDA announces approval of Levaquin for treatment of the plague. Talk about a backlog. Next up, a vaccine for scurvy. Apparently taking codeine while breast feeding wont cause harm to newborns... except mothers cant remember which one is their kid. One-third of those with arthritis over age 45 develop anxiety and depression. It appears being dysjointed creates a state of being... disjointed. A research gynecologist has successfully isolated the G-spot in an 83-year-old cadaver... proving its better late than never. Researchers have found that obesity is related to the environment we live in... explains the low vacancy rate in donut shops. Study shows that our left cheek shows more emotion and is our best side. But if you dont want to show your emotions... wear thicker pants. Depression causes poor blood flow to the heart and legs, which in turn causes depression, which causes poor blood flow to the heart and legs. Apparently the makers of Viagra are worried about stiff competition from the generic companies... sounds like a taste of their own medicine. More people seeking chin implant surgery due to having seen themselves on video chat. Universal donor, Jay Leno, currently in hiding. A meeting by protestors against circumcision had to be cut short... much like the reason they were protesting in the first place. Stem cells from the pelvic bone marrow may restore cardiac tissue damaged by a heart attack. No wonder Elvis was a heartthrob! Newest bad food gone good is popcorn (air popped the best). Great fibre, excellent antioxidant, wonderful floss inducer. Coincidence that Sealey is back from Disneyland and they suddenly cant find Goofy? Now the quacks are flying with both wings. Apparently eating chocolate can make you slimmer... so far, Ive had 22 Snickers bars and I havent lost an ounce. Sleep apnea may be linked to depression. Sleep apnea->hypertension>heart attack->death->pool boy now wearing your housecoat->depression. 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. From page 38Adrenal SupplementsIts a mortgage and a nightmare to take all of those, so I recommend you buy one formula that can multi-task, meaning it includes several of those goodies. The effect is synergistic, and the price is nice. You can find a couple of good formulas at health food stores such as ADRENergize by Enzymatic Therapy or Stress Advantage by New Chapter. If you are picky like me, take a physicianformulated product that guarantees therapeutic dosages, such as a-Drenal by RLC Labs (I take it myself).

Mama cat is small and white and her four remaining babies (three males, one female) are approximately 3 to 4 months old and mostly all white with some gray. PAWS had them all combo tested, spayed, neutered, all shots, wormed, treated for fleas and totally checked out medically. They are all healthy and ready for a new loving home. Mama kitty has been through quite an ordeal. She is probably only 1 or 2 years old at most, and has had to struggle with six little ones. She now seems to be showing some improvement and we hope will continue to get stronger every day. If you can help, call PAWS volunteer Pam at 472-4823. Help us help them find their forever homes. Donations may be made payable to PAWS and can be mailed to PO Box 855, Sanibel, FL 33957. This mother cat and her four kittens, found in an abandoned apartment on Sanibel, need a home 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. Shore Fishing:Don't Harm The Fishby Capt.

Do you need someone to brighten you day? Then adopt me! Im the happiest dog you will ever meet and it shows all over. I wiggle from head to toe whenever Im around people. Oh, and Im really kind of cute, too! During Animal Services Back To School Adoption Special, you can draw a coupon for $20 to $50 off my regular adoption fee of $75. Hi, my name is Gail and I am a year-old spayed female gray domestic short hair. I came to the shelter with my three kittens and we have been living in a foster home until now. If you are looking for a quiet companion, I would be perfect for you. Im really quite docile and gentle and get along well with other cats. During Animal Services Back To School Adoption Special, you can draw a coupon for $20 to $50 off my regular adoption fee of $50. For information about this weeks pets, call 533-7387 (LEE-PETS) or log on to Animal Services website at www.LeeLostPets.com. When calling, refer to the animals ID number. The website updates every hour so you will be able to see if these or any other pets are still available. The shelter is open for adoptions from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The shelter is located at 5600 Banner Drive in Fort Myers, next to the Lee County Sheriffs Office off Six Mile Cypress Parkway. All adoptions include spay/neuter surgery, age-appropriate vaccinations, rabies vaccination and county license if three months or older, flea treatment, worming, heartworm test for dogs six months and over, feline AIDS and leukemia test for cats, training DVD, 10-day health guarantee, and a bag of Science Diet pet food. The adoption package is valued at $500. Gail ID# 543098 Rocky ID# 421213 photos by squaredogphoto.com Pet Shelter In Crisis Lee County Domestic Animal Services Shelter takes in more than 10,000 animals annually and consequently suffers from overcrowding even under the best of circumstances. More than the usual number of dogs entered the shelter over the Labor Day weekend, when outdoor activities resulted in more missing pets. In addition, the summer lag in adoptions is still in effect. A minimum of 30 dogs need to be placed to prevent the euthanasia of healthy adoptable pets due to owner irresponsibility in never reclaiming their owned animals, says Donna Ward, LCDAS director. Only 13 out of every 100 dogs and less than one of every 100 cats are ever reclaimed by their owners in our community. Shelter employees shouldnt have to euthanize animals due to irresponsible owners and animals shouldnt have to pay with their lives. LCDAS offers numerous programs such as Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR), which provides free sterilization for feral cats, and For Pits Sake, which provides free sterilization for pit bulls and pit bull mixes. The agencys Community Pet Pantry Program provides free spay/neuter, food and supplies to keep pets of economically disadvantaged owners from being surrendered to overcrowded shelters. Microchip ID clinics are offered the first Friday of every other month to provide economical permanent identification so pets can be returned to their owners. To help alleviate the overcrowding and place the pets into permanent homes as quickly as possible, Animal Services is offering a Back To School adoption special during the entire month of September. Each adopter may draw a coupon worth $20 to $50 off the regular adoption fee for the pet they would like to adopt. With the adoption, they are eligible to win one of two backpacks filled with school supplies. The discount coupons will save adopters at least 20 percent and as much as 100 percent off the regular fees, plus cats and kittens are two for the price of one. Even though adoption fees will be reduced, all pets adopted still will receive sterilization, age appropriate vaccinations, county license, microchip ID, de-worming, flea treatment, a heartworm test for dogs, feline aids and leukemia test for cats, 10-day Health Guarantee, and a bag of Hills Science Diet dog or cat food. The adoption package is valued at over $500. Lost pets and pets available for adoption can be viewed online at www.LeeLostPets.com or visit the shelter at 5600 Banner Drive in Fort Myers, next to the Lee County Sheriffs Office off Six Mile Cypress Parkway. Adoption viewing hours are Monday through Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. You can even submit your adoption application online before you come to the shelter. The shelters website updates hourly.
