And for Fleur Wales-Baillie, the founder of the Khumbula Thina Trust and mountain sanctuary of the same name, the us she remembers most are the animals which call her 6,200-acre wildlife refuge home. Located in a remote region in South Africa along the Elephant Coast, the Khumbula Thina Mountain Sanctuary is home to thousands of animal species rhinoceros, giraffe, hippopotamus, wildebeest, leopard, cheetah, zebra, warthog, impala, antelope, elephant and many more who are considered rare, threatened and/or endangered. In fact, some of the animals that now call Fleurs Camp home have been rescued and relocated to the private land preserve. I spent much of my childhood in the bush, with lots of animals around, said Wales-Baillie, who at one time was a parttime resident of Sanibel. But as my life went along and my flying career took off, I had always longed to return to the bush. Wales-Baillie, who gained notoriety for becoming the worlds first female commercial jumbo jet pilot/engineer 35 years ago, purchased the former South African cattle farm in 2000. One of the people who supported her dream to transform the property into a free-roaming habitat for wildlife was conservation pioneer Jim Fowler. He encouraged me to follow my passion, she said. The mission of the Khumbula Thina Trust is three-fold, according to WalesBaillie: The Land To reclaim wilderness areas.

This past week was our second dolphin week of the summer, and it was one of our best weeks yet. True to our playful subject animal, we spent tons of time this week playing in the water. Our campers, many of whom had never been on a surfboard, caught some great waves in the gulf and surfed like pros or should we say, like dolphins? We caught lots of great fish and filled the tanks in our classroom with everything from permits to a pufferfish. We learned how to seine net and cast net and snorkel in dolphins favorite hangouts one day, we were visited by a curious dolphin that came mere feet away from our snorkelers. In between the obligatory surfing and playing in the water, we studied just how curious and intelligent dolphins really are. We asked ourselves the following question: is a dolphin smarter than a human? Although it is a bit unreasonable to quantify the intelligence of an entire species, and even harder to compare across species, the question does raise some interesting ideas. Dolphins can do a lot of things that humans cant, much of which comes from their extra sense: echolocation. We investigated our own senses in a sensory fair, where we explored how our perceptions can differ from reality. We became convinced that what we think were experiencing isnt always accurate. We tricked our taste buds using a pill made from a small red berry called miracle fruit, which turns sour into sweet and makes lemons taste as sweet as candy. We tricked our eyes using optical illusions, and then dissected a cow eyeball to gain a better understanding of how these pathways work. One of the coolest parts was uncovering the tapetum lucidum, that reflective blue color which creates the shine you see in an animals eyes at night and increases their night vision capabilities. We learned about the different regions of the brain and made a papier-mch thinking cap, which we labeled with the cognitive functions that correspond to each area it was strange to learn that the occipital lobe, which processes visual information, is all the way at the back of the head, far from the eyes. Whether or not you decide to believe dolphins are actually smarter than humans, they certainly are better than us at many things. They remind us to be playful, and to spend lots of time in the ocean. Take a cue from the dolphins and go play in nature. If youre on Sanibel and youre not doing plenty of that, youre not smart at all. Sanibel Sea School is a non-profit organization looking to a world where all people value, understand and care for the ocean. Our mission is to improve the oceans future one person at a time. Please enjoy our offerings and join the Ocean Tribe at www. sanibelseaschool.org or stop by our Sanibel location.

City Works To Make Permitting Process Easierby Anne MitchellSeeking a permit to open a business on Sanibel is notoriously complex and can be frustrating. Sanibel is protected by a collection of stringent codes relating to land use and density to preserve its character as a sanctuary island. To help encourage business activity, some rules are being reviewed in an ongoing process by the planning commission. On Tuesday, the commission, sitting as the Permitting Process Review Committee, continued its efforts to streamline the process. At the August 7 meeting of the city council, some members lamented the amount of vacant commercial space and the need to stimulate business. Some fees have already been lowered to help applicants. Vice Mayor Mick Denham asked to have the topic on the councils October or November agenda for further discussion.. The committee focused Tuesday on conditional uses, especially those relating to formula or chain retail businesses. Conditional use permit applications are held to a higher standard and such businesses are limited as to size. At a previous meeting, the committee worked on the definition of formula retail, which includes having standardized signs, uniforms, architecture and merchandise. Not defined as formula businesses are professional services such as banks, real estate offices and dental offices. Nor are businesses that originated on Sanibel but have more than one location, such as Chicos and Cheeburger Cheeburger. Since April of 2000, approximately 42 conditional use permits have been processed, according to a staff report. More recent applicants have included Norris Furniture; J. McLaughlin, a clothing boutique, which will open in Heart Of The Island shopping center; Center Place, a Community Housing Resources cluster development; and the Sanibel Olive Oil Company in Periwinkle Place. Meanwhile, the Sanibel and Captiva Chamber of Commerce, wanting to encourage new and improved business activity, has conducted a survey of its members and businesses such as contractors, to find out their experiences with permit applications. Robert Monk, representing the chamber, said there were 230 responses. Many felt it took longer or much longer than they expected. That might be our next avenue of inquiry, he said. Thirty gave us permission to contact them for further information. As to how many people sought permits and didnt get them, Monk added, We found a small but significant number who had not gotten a permit. We feel to try to encourage them we should remove some of the uncertainty. It is when they dont know how long it will take or is more expensive than they thought, that is where we can make some recommendations to you. Another issue mentioned by respondents was parking and the fact that applicants need to hire an expert to provide data. Monk said he hoped to present the final results to the city this week. The next step is to find some of the participants willing to communicate with us. Resident Karen Storjohann suggested developing a synergy between the city and the chamber, such as a web site that people could use to seek information on what is needed of someone wishing to start a restaurant or open a small business. Commissioner John Talmage, himself a business owner, thought that was a terrific idea. If we could link all these efforts together, it would solve a lot of problems, said Talmage. Home To Remain On Site Until New Dwelling Builtby Anne MitchellKarl and Ann Rodmans request to continue living in their home until their new one is built on the same site got the blessing of the Sanibel Planning Commission on Tuesday. Their parcel at 5657 Sanibel-Captiva Road, in the Castaways subdivision, consists of two lots totaling .78 acres. The property is entitled to only one dwelling unit. The existing home is on the western portion of the parcel. There were no public comments on the temporary use permit application either at the meeting or in writing to the city. The hearing took about 10 minutes and the planning commissioners made no comments. The Rodmans were present for the hearing along with their contractor, Scott Wolter of The Wolter Group. A condition of approval is that the temporary use of the existing home not exceed one year and it will be demolished and the site returned to its original condition once the new home is built. The permit can be extended for another year upon application and a hearing by the planning commission.

7 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 17, 2012Citys Conversion Reduces Paper Usage, Adds iPadThe City of Sanibel has reduced the number of copies made by administration by more than a half million sheets of paper over the past 24 months through the adoption of new technology, including the use of iPads. Additionally, the administration expense for postage has been reduced by 54 percent over the past 12 months. While developing the upcoming budget, the city is documenting the efficiencies gained through the use of recent technology initiatives. The city has not only converted to paperless agendas for the city council meetings but also much of the citys correspondence, including internal memorandums, are now processed electronically. The city is also in the process of converting computing and public records storage to a cloud based system rather than traditional servers. In addition to the positive environmental impacts of converting to a paperless system we have found efficiencies in the quality of our work product, response times and transparency stated Sanibel City Manager Judie Zimomra. For example, Sanibels field workers are also using wireless devices to transmit real time photographs to supervisors for immediate feedback, eliminating the number of trips and persons required on-site to make decisions. Another extremely effective use of our technological upgrades has been the deployment of computers in our police cruisers which provide our officers increased time dedicated to neighborhood patrol and has reduced dramatically the amount of time officers are in the station completing traditional paperwork, added Zimomra. Over the next 24 months, our next wave of upgrades will improve the capabilities for citizens to conduct their business transactions with the city on-line. We are committed to maximizing the functionality of technology for the benefit of our citizens and taxpayers.

8 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 17, 2012 Tahitian Gardens, Sanibel 239-395-5353www.SynergySportswear.com Sanibel Family Discovers Perfect Home Through CHR submitted by Sue Denham, Zonta volunteer for CHRThis is a Sanibel story with the happiest of endings for Community Housing & Resources (CHR), the non-profit, private corporation which administers the Below Market Rate Housing program for the City of Sanibel, and the Bell family, who moved last March into a CHR Limited Equity Ownership (LEO) home in Centre Place. According to CHR Board member Ray Pavelka, LEO offers all the typical benefits of home ownership, plus a guaranteed annual appreciation of three percent during the first 10 years. The below-market-rate purchase price is made possible through Coastal & Island Community Land Trust, a subsidiary of CHR, which owns the land, and through state and federal grant programs that offer low-interest mortgages. For nine years, Rodd Bell took daily care of his elderly parents in their Sanibel home. During that time, he and Gabriela, who was employed by the Sanibel-Captiva Community Bank in its McGregor Blvd. office, met and married, and the couple made their home in an apartment close to Sanibel. Then, two children arrived Rodd Luis, now 2-and-a-half years old, and Valentina Grace, 10 months. With Valentinas arrival last fall, everything changed. As a stay-at-home dad, it was clear that Rodds time for his parents was now limited. Rodds father (who was to celebrate his 100th birthday this July) announced that he and Rodds mother would like to return to Gloucester, Massachusetts to live. Then, Gabys employer offered her a position at the Sanibel branch as head teller, a welcome promotion but with the downside of a longer commute. As often happens, unexpected elements fell into place. Up north, family members were freed up to take on the care of the parents. Rodds mother, always interested in Sanibel affairs, drew his attention to the CHR program, though he thought they would not qualify for a rental unit. Then, through connections at her bank, Gaby learned that the family might be a fit for the LEO program, developed by CHR to serve those outside the income parameters for renting. In February 2012, with his parents safely delivered into the care of siblings in Massachusetts, Rodd and Gaby sat down with Ray Pavelka, who provided clear direction through the process of qualifying and made, Rodd adds, no false promises. Hurdles included extensive paperwork and requirements set by the grant-providing entities, such as completing a Homebuyer Education Class through Lee Countys Housing Development Corporation in Fort Myers. The Bells also needed to come up with closing costs, which vary but are typically 1 to 1.25 percent of the purchase price. However, the stars that had begun to align with Valentinas arrival did not let them down. The couple met every requirement, closed on the home on March 20 and with more help from family moved in before the end of the month. I cant begin to tell you how lucky we feel, Rodd said. Our home is gorgeous, well designed and extremely well built I know because I worked as a carpenter for years. This program is a wonderful thing for CHR and the City of Sanibel to have done, and it should be a model for other communities. Centre Place, which comprises 14 units in seven duplex buildings, was officially opened in the spring of 2010. A hidden jewel right in the middle of the island, it is becoming a very special community, particularly for families like the Bells, who work on the island and will send their children to The Sanibel School. CHR has a total of 14 LEO units, eight in Centre Place and six more in two other locations, Beach Road and Sanibel Highlands. Of the 14 units, 13 have been sold and the final sale is pending, according to Patti Bohm, administrative manager for CHR. The couple has high praise for CHR, especially the professionalism of the staff, and all elements of the program, particularly for the guidance they received from Pavelka and for the vision of another board member, Dr. Phil Marks, who spearheaded the creation of the LEO program which, as Rodd says, is a model for the 21st century.

Blust spoke to us about a new movement in promoting the use of local, sustainable seafood in restaurants, markets, retailers, wholesalers and distributors of seafood along the Gulf Coast of Florida. The name of this organization is Seafood Savvy, a recipe for change. Seafood Savvy is a splinter group of START (Solutions to Avoid Red Tide), a group that many of us on Sanibel know about. President of the Sanibel-Captiva START Chapter is Sanibel resident Dr. Bruce Neill, executive director and cofounder of Sanibel Sea School. STARTs vision is to improve the quality of our marine waters through research, public education and programs that restore marine habitats, preserve marine species and promote healthy beaches and coastal waterways. Seafood Savvy promotes the belief that we can lessen the human impact on the oceans by making wise seafood choices and encouraging improvement of fishing and fish-far ming methods. Seventy five percent of the oceans seafood is over fished and 75 percent of the seafood consumed is purchased in restaurants, therefore, the efforts to save this important food source and provide a sustainable future is a major focus of educating our restaurateurs. Blust told us, Timbers customers came in asking questions about the sourcing of their seafood and the efforts made to buy locally and how that source could be sustainable of that source in the future. Getting involved with Seafood Savvy was the answer. Seafood Savvy works closely with Monterey Bay Aquariums Seafood Watch program; this program provides a pocket guide of fish/seafood now in the marketplace and the methods used to fish or farm the different species. Non-sustainable seafood fishing practice include dredging of clams, scallops, and oysters; gillnetting, except for Alaska Salmon low levels of bycatch; longlining too much bycatch; purse seining, which works for small fish but not large tuna or dolphins too many other species caught and killed; and trawling, responsible for the largest percentage of commercially available fish destructive to the environment. Sustainable fishing practices include hook and lining, where fishermen can quickly release unwanted catch from their hooks; harpooning, catching larger fish such as swordfish, no bycatch; floating traps; and trolling, because bycatch is minimal and can be quickly released. Timbers is a Seafood Savvy restaurant and fish market. This increases the cost of their fish/seafood just slightly but the restaurant group feels that their customers will support the added cost knowing it is going toward a more sustainable supply of seafood for the future. 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.

12 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 17, 2012 Olde Sanibel Shoppes 630 Tarpon Bay Road239.395.1464 Sanibel Island A Saggau reunion on Sanibel netted family members a junonia, alphabet cone, calico scallop and a couple of Fargo worm snails. Sally Saggau Reiman, Di Saggau, Jinx Saggau Moore, Mary and Paul Saggau Shells Found FWC Researchers Witness Spawning Of Rare CoralOn a Saturday night dive near Key Largo, Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) researchers saw something previously unseen in the state: male and female pillar coral spawning together. The divers, in Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary waters, witnessed male pillar coral colonies release sperm, followed a few minutes later by female colonies releasing eggs. The August 4 event marked the first officially documented occurrence of this behavior in Florida. Previously, it had been unclear whether a female pillar coral population existed in the state, as no one had documented the release of pillar coral eggs. Researchers were on hand to try to observe this activity during the twoto five-day period after the August full moon, a time when corals are known to spawn. We are excited to confirm the presence of male and female pillar coral colonies in Florida, said Kate Lunz, an FWC research scientist who participated in the dive. This indicates a population with the potential to reproduce. Unlike many other stony coral species, which produce both sperm and eggs, pillar coral form separate male and female colonies for reproduction. The colonies are made up of multiple pillars, or columns, clustered together and rising from the ocean floor. Pillar coral is a state-listed threatened species and is rare in the Florida reef tract. Its range in the state is believed to stretch from Palm Beach County to the Dry Tortugas. It was a popular target of the curio trade before its collection was banned. The coral continues to face threats from disease, sedimentation and other factors. For more information on corals in Florida, visit www.MyFWC.com/Research, click on Habitat, and select Coral Reefs.

13 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 17, 2012Birds Eye ViewOnce I Thought I Was Wrong, But I Was Mistakenby Mark Bird WestallA few weeks ago, I voiced my concern about the purge on alligators the island implemented in 2004 and challenged the citys Wildlife Committee to begin looking into the possible impacts on our local nesting wading bird population. I promptly received an email from the Island Sun publisher informing me that one of our long-time island residents had stopped by their offices to let me know that the Wildlife Committee had been disbanded years ago. Dont let the title of this current column confuse you. I DID mistakenly suggest the non-existent Wildlife Committee look into the alligator/nesting wading bird relationship and I WAS wrong about thinking this issue was something they could look at. I only put that title there because there are some folks on the island (especially some who have known me the best over the years) who would state that the title fits me perfectly. But I was mistaken period. And to the concerned, ever-watchful citizen who pointed out my blunder (you know who you are), thank you! However, getting back to my original challenge; I had only suggested the Wildlife Committee take on this issue because I was looking for an interested group that could coordinate such a monitoring program with little or no financial cost. The professional organizations that exist on the island with the expertise to initiate such a monitoring program, i.e. the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, SCCF and the citys Natural Resource Department are incredibly busy and any project they take on strains their limited time and budgets. Over 30 years ago, when those professional organizations were either understaffed or in their infancy, there were many environmental projects underway mostly developed and implemented by interested private citizens. Having just arrived on the island myself, my involvement with ospreys happened because George Campbell and Charles LeBuff had started putting up artificial nesting platforms for the birds. As I became more involved with the osprey program, I began to wonder if the nesting platforms were doing any good for the birds. It quickly became clear that putting up these platforms was helping human interests by enticing the birds away from tempting nesting sites such as utility poles and chimneys, but I wondered if their productivity was being affected. So, with no official support, I started a monitoring program on the ospreys that compared nesting success at the artificial sites compared to that of the natural sites. Initially, I did the monitoring on my own, but very quickly determined that the work could be done more safely and efficiently with more help. For many years, the monitoring was accomplished with a small core of volunteers. Eventually, The International Osprey Foundation (TIOF) was formed and, today, a committed group of about 40 volunteers still monitor Sanibels nesting osprey population. This monitoring showed that the artificial sites fledged twice as many chicks as the natural sites. That is probably a major factor as to why Sanibel has such a large osprey population. Though there are some who might privately think that is a bad thing (especially if their neighbors nesting osprey pair consistently wakes them up at sunrise every morning), most of us are glad to watch the ospreys feed their young and fish off the causeway. Isnt that what Sanibel is supposed to be all about? Getting back to the point, there was a concern that ospreys were in trouble in the 1970s and the people of Sanibel took it among themselves to help the osprey survive. Now, there is a concern about our nesting wading birds on the island. I doubt there is anybody who comes to Sanibel that doesnt get a thrill every time they see a great egret or ibis feeding alongside the road, or in their yard, or out on the mudflats of the refuge. But in order to continue to have these beautiful experiences on the island, these birds, like the ospreys, have to be productive during the nesting season. And Sanibel has drastically changed the dynamics of the nesting environment for these birds on the island. A large portion of our alligator population has been removed. There will always be alligators on the island because with our large development ponds and gently sloping lawns in peoples backyards, Sanibel is prime gator habitat. But the gator population will be much smaller, both in overall numbers and size of individuals. What impact, if any, will this have on the islands nesting wading birds? I believe that alligators are a major factor in the success rate of nesting wading birds and, in some cases, may play an continued on page 21 National Geographic Travel Guide Top 10 Best Ice Creams in Gulf Coast America 2011 Taste of the Islands BEST DESSERT 2008 2009 2010 2011 Best of the Islands 2010 2012 Trip Advisor Recommended 2010 2011 Talk of the Town for Customer SatisfactionWe proudly serve Pinocchios Original Italian Ice Cream Sandwiches Sandwiches Prepared On Our Prepared On Our Fresh Baked Breads Fresh Baked Breads Artisan Breads Artisan Breads Try Our Signature Try Our Signature Sanibel Blossom Sanibel BlossomI CANNOT TELL A LIE...IT'S SIMPLY THE BEST...

He works for the Fort Myers Regional Partnership, formerly known as the Lee County Economic Development Office. Within the strategic division, Moores mission is to assist current business owners as well as attract new businesses to Lee County. In Southwest Florida, obviously our economy is driven by tourism, seasonal residents and retirees. Moores goal is to grow the pie a little bigger by making our area attractive for businesses to relocate here. What would entice a company to move, you may ask? Jim mentioned that the quality of life is the biggest factor. (This week, I keep getting reminded that Southwest Florida is one of the coolest places in the country.) Historically, our local workforce has a low turnover rate. Also, we have a very able workforce looking for jobs. Although we do not have a plethora of skilled machinists who could work in a factory, for example, Moore confirmed that we are loaded with many competent administrative personal ready to work. And I need not mention that we have no state income tax. In closing, he gave the example of how Gartner chose to set up an operation in Fort Myers. Back in 1997, Fort Myers was one of several locations being considered for a new office. Since they moved here in 1998, Gartner has expanded twice. They are growing at an annual pace of 20 percent per year, and Fort Myers is their third largest office worldwide. Moore and his staff are constantly looking to be introduced to other business owners or retired business owners with contacts up north. In other Kiwanis Club news, we are very proud to announce that we were able to give out 28 scholarships of various levels to college students this year. The amounts were based on need, grades, community service and, of course, the students affiliation to Sanibel and Captiva. There are still some Diners Delight (two-for-one dinner) coupon books available for those still need one. Please contact any Kiwanian. If you have an interest in helping our community, and you would like to meet some fairly interesting people, please consider joining us for our Tuesday breakfast meetings. We meet at The Dunes every week at 7:30 a.m. for some good food, great camaraderie and an interesting guest speaker who normally discusses current events in the community. We look forward to seeing you.

Museums Adopt-A-Class Program Reaches Lee County 4th GradersThe Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum has provided one-of-a kind educational experiences to more than 25,000 children in Lee County since the inception of the museums Adopt-A-Class Program in 2003. The Adopt-A-Class Program, which covers the cost of transportation to and from Sanibel, creates the opportunity for all Lee County public fourth-graders, including those from disadvantaged neighborhoods, to tour the museum at no cost to the school. Lee County teachers who have participated in previous Adopt-A-Class Programs report that the field trip is the highlight of the school year for their fourth graders. In 2008, the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge began a partnership with the museum and the field trip now includes a half-day learning at each venue. The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum portion teaches Lee County fourth graders about mollusks, the soft-bodied invertebrates that make shells, while theDing Darling portion features an important learning experience about wildlife conservation. Funding for the program has had challenges since Lee County support for transportation costs was phased out beginning in 2003. Further challenging the cost of the program are increased gas prices and decreased funding from private sources. The museum has begun its campaign for funding of the coming academic years classes and will begin the adoption process in mid-August. Fortunately last year, a major museum supporter adopted more than 15 classes with their contribution to the program. Sponsorship from area individuals and businesses are vital to the continuation of the program. With continued strong support from the community like last year, the museums Adopt-A-Class will once again be a highly successful educational outreach program for 2012-2013! If you would like to help sponsor the Adopt-A-Class Program, visit www.shellmuseum.org or contact John Suau at jsuau@shellmuseum.org. For more information about the museums educational programs, contact Diane Thomas at dothomas@shellmuseum.org, or call the museum at 395-2233.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 17, 201216 Plant SmartFlorida Tasselflowerby Gerri ReavesFlorida tasselflower (Emilia fosbergii) is one of countless wildflowers that blessed category of plants that grow and bloom without cultivation. For the homeowner who wants less yard work, a pretty non-invasive flower who needs no help at all might sound like a good thing, especially since Florida tasselflower attracts small butterflies, bees and birds. This diminutive little beauty is very drought-tolerant, requires no maintenance and grows in full sun. Nevertheless, while some people welcome this member of the aster family to their yard, some are busy dousing it with herbicide because they call it a weed. Also known as Floras paintbrush, it blooms all year long in Florida, popping up in pinelands, hammocks, along roadsides, in undeveloped lots and even in cultivated lawns. The flowers origin is unknown, but is considered naturalized in Florida. The flower heads in shades of red or pink are enclosed tightly in green bracts. They flowers flare like a paintbrush tip atop the branched stems. The plant can grow to more than two feet tall. The coarsely toothed leaves vary in shape. Leaves at the base are spatulate, while the clasping upper leaves are stalkless and lance-like. The larger leaves at the base of the plant and the stems usually have grayish white hairs. Rounded seed heads are filled with silky-haired white seeds, which are dispersed by the wind. Who knows where those windborne seeds will land and take root perhaps on a date palm trunk like the one in the photo or whether they will be appreciated, ignored or eradicated?

17 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 17, 2012 CROW Case Of The Week: Baby Gopher Tortoiseby Patricia MolloyImagine the excitement of a gopher tortoise hatchling finally breaking through the final piece of shell and draging itself to the surface from its mothers burrow. Now begins its first search for food through thick vegetation for the one-and-a-half inch long reptilian. Gopher tortoises are grazers that feed primarily on grasses and legumes. On August 6, one tiny tortoise uncharacteristically took to the skies as a hawk swooped down and grabbed it with its powerful talons, quickly whisking the turtle away. The hawk did not have a keen grip on its bite size meal and dropped it from a lengthy height. A good Samaritan witnessed the fall and promptly drove the tortoise to one of CROWs nine convenient drop off sites. Gareth Johnson, CROW patient admissions and first responder, transported the patient to the clinic for treatment. Upon arrival, it had no penetrating wounds on the outside but it was very lethargic and its eyes were closed and heavily bruised. Additionally, it had an edema (swelling) around its neck. The most severe presentation was respiratory distress; its hind legs moved with every breath it took. Its condition worsened throughout the first day but began improving slowly, but steadily, by the second day. The medical breakthrough was a direct result of the supportive care administered by the clinic staff. The tiny patient received subcutaneous fluids, Oxitetraciclina (an ophthalmic steroids with anti-infectives) and plenty of groceries. As its strength improved, it was given anti-inflammatories to treat possible contusions and hemorrhaging resulting from the fall. If you would like to help patient #2372 on its long road to recovery, go to CROWs website to make a donation. You can specify that your money be used to treat specific patients, such as this cute little hatchling, or any other patient/species of your choice.

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.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 17, 201218 With our local schools back in session, it sure is nice and quiet out on the bay. Even during the weekend, coastal morning showers kept most fishermen home. This next six weeks or so is without a doubt my favorite time of year to be out on the water, as there is little to no boat pressure in the sound and fishing is really good for a very wide variety of species. Starting towards the end of the week, we had good morning high water that had the redfish bite going on. Some of the redfish caught were the over-the-lotsize species that I have not really caught regularly since last fall. Working just about any wind-blown mangrove shoreline in the southern sound during the higher water was a good bet for redfish. Moving and working every nook and cranny of a shoreline was the key to getting these fish. Snook fishing was a little tougher for me. Snook was the only fish my clients from Atlanta wanted to catch, so we stuck it out one day. I really struggled to get any kind of snook bite going most of the morning. Fishing the passes on a falling tide did not produce a single snook. When I moved out to the snags along the beaches, I did see quite a few snook laid up in the clearer water, but just could not get them to eat. After fishing our way back to the southern end of the sound, we targeted docks on the low following tide still without any action. Just when we were ready to wrap it up for the day, I went to one last spot I had not fished since last fall to catch the end of the low outgoing tide on a deep mangrove shoreline. The first cast with a large pinfish got slammed almost instantly and, after a battle during which the fish even got wrapped up in the mangroves for a while, we finally pulled our first snook of the day to the boat, a fat 31-incher. The next bait in did not last much longer and after a brief battle, a 30-incher came to the boat. All morning we had fished for snook and to finally get it done at the last spot of the day is always a relief as a guide. Sure, we had a slow day but the way the snook bite has been for me the last week, I was just happy we could catch and release at least two good sized fish. If it was up to me, I would have changed target species about an hour into the trip, but these clients only had one species on their to-do list. These next few months when I leave the dock, I will go with the attitude that I will fish for what the day gives me and see what I run across. Sure, I always like to have my first few stops of the day planned out with a certain target species in mind. Some days the trip will go almost exactly as planned, but other times no matter how hard you work at it, you just have to switch it up or you just happen to run across something even better than you had planned. This proved true a few times this week with keeper grouper and even a few cobia in the mix. The outfits I take along for a normal trip this time of year include my regular 15# light tackle spinning rods, 30# medium action spinning rods and heavy 65# test jigging style spinning rods. No matter what I come across from trout, redfish and snook to shallow water grouper, cobia, sharks and tarpon I have a rig to get it done. There is nothing worse than not having the right tackle for the job and any day out on the water the mix of fish caught on a trip could include a wide variety of species. Being tied into catching one species of fish for the day is not always a bad thing, but with all the options available in our local waters right now, you need to be ready for just about anything. Even just running from one place to another, you never really know what angling opportunity might present itself.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 captmattmitchell@aol. com.

Cash prizes will also be available to those who place in the tournament. Rapidly becoming the premier tournament in Southwest Florida, the catch-andrelease fishing tournament is expected to draw 75 anglers to Lee County waterways as part of the Calusa Blueway Paddling Festival along the shores of Southwest Florida.

21 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 17, 2012 Coyote And Bear Tales At SCCFOn Wednesday, August 22, come to the SCCF Nature Center and learn about two newcomer species to the islands. A coyote and a Florida black bear were documented on the island for the first time in the winter of 2011. Come and learn about the behaviors of these two new species and how to live with them. Coyotes have now tmoved into every county in Florida. Both human and bear populations are growing in Florida. The island black bear was recently relocated to a new territory and then needed to be relocated again. The Coyote And Bear Tales program is free to children and SCCF members, $5 for adults and starts at 10 a.m. Call 472-2329 for more information. From page 13Birds Eye Viewimportant role in determining whether the birds even attempt to nest or not. Doesnt it make sense that someone should be monitoring the nesting success of one of the islands biggest tourist attractions? Now I know that the refuge does some monitoring like this on islands off of Sanibel in the Pine Island Sound/ Matlacha area, but I am concerned about Sanibels nesting wading birds. The monitoring could be done relatively simply and, if done with volunteers, would need to use techniques that insured no disturbance occurred. I even think this would make a great graduate study for some student at FGCU. But someone needs to talk to Dr. Win Everham or Dr. Jerry Jackson. All it needs is some interested person, or persons (like the defunct Wildlife Committee) to take the project on. Im willing to help, but I cant be the leader anymore. Its time for the next generation to jump in and get involved. Is there anybody out there?

For this competition, the museum seeks amateur photos of live mollusks in their environment. Museum staff hope you will share your skills to photograph live mollusks in their natural habitats; marine, land, or freshwater. Judges will consider images of live mollusks eating, moving, mating, etc. The competition is judged annually and winners are announced in late November, during the week of the museums anniversary, on Sunday, November 18. Winning entries will be posted on the museums website and Facebook pages, and displayed in the museum auditorium. Photo entries may be submitted electronically and must be received by November 8. Contest Rules Only amateur photographers are eligible to enter. Photos must be from the most recent two years. Photos must be submitted electronically as an e-mail attachment to Diane Thomas (dothomas@shellmuseum.org.) Images should be in JPEG, TIF or BMP formats only. The native resolution should be 300 dpi, and the final image size between 4 and 7 MB. Each person may enter up to two photographs but is eligible to win only one award. The judges will receive image files without any identifier as to authorship of the images. Judging Criteria Technical excellence (sharpness, lighting, composition, exposure) Originality/Creativity Interest Adequate use of image processing software, if applicable (e.g., Photoshop) Regulations We will recognize one first, second, and third place winner, and one honorable mention We will have a Junior-Youth division and an Adult division Photos may be used by the museum in any of its publication media (website, Facebook, Museum News) with credit given to photographers. A release form (available from the museum website at www.shellmuseum.org) must be completed and emailed with each entry. Please send all inquiries and submissions to Diane Thomas at dothomas@shellmuseum.org. The photography contest is an outreach initiative that provides a perfect venue for generating interest and enthusiasm in live mollusks, said Thomas, public programs specialist for the museum. Since the collection of live mollusks is banned in Lee County, capturing images is a wonderful way for the public to learn more about the creatures that actually make shells. Over the years, shell enthusiasts have provided the museum with their favorite photographs. We would like to add to that collection and display winning entries on our website and in the museum.

Her favorite part of the experience was working with the cast and crew. We had a blast, on stage and off, said Wegryn Gross. I taught all the boys how to needlepoint while we were backstage. Every cast member of Sex Good; Money Bad can now do a mean cross stitch. It takes a very unique, talented actress to pull off the demands of a male dominated play, commented Drew DeCorleto producer for Broken Watch Theatre Company. Halley approached the role with an enthusiastic fervor, without fear, and successfully created a star caliber performance. A truly gifted actress and a pleasure to work with, Halley is a show stealer on and off the stage. The nominees were announced at a sold-out event on July 23 that was attended by nearly 500 artists and guests. The awards will be presented at a ceremony on September 24, which will be hosted by comedian Harrison Greenbaum. Over the past eight years, the IT Awards has honored over 1,650 individual artists, over 450 productions and 350 theatre companies, having collected over 35,000 ballots and disseminated more than 6,000 judges. The 2012 nominees include 137 individual artists, 52 different productions and 57 Off-Off-Broadway theatre companies. The IT Awards are given annually to honor individuals and organizations who have achieved artistic excellence in OffOff-Broadway theatre. The New York IT Awards recognizes the unique and essential role Off-Off-Broadway plays in contributing to American and global culture, and believes that publicly recognizing excellence in Off-Off-Broadway theatre will expand audience awareness and appreciation of the full New York theatre experience.

Things Not Seen Before: A Tribute To John Cage is a visual art exhibition and interactive installation (guest curated by Jade Dellinger) in celebration of the 2012 birth centenary of one of the most influential creative thinkers of the 20th century. An intimate friend and collaborator of Bob Rauschenbergs, the composer once noted, I am very happy to have known Marcel Duchamp and to be living still in the time of Rauschenberg... I am not interested in the names of movements but rather in seeing and making things not seen before. Combining and significantly expanding projects initiated by The Tampa Museum of Art and Tempus Projects and consisting largely of material not previously exhibited, Things Not Seen Before includes John Cage-related or inspired works by colleagues and collaborators including Fluxus pioneers Nam June Paik, Philip Corner, Giuseppe Chiari, Yoko Ono and Milan Knk. Numerous others who closely followed or befriended and were profoundly influenced by Cage like performance artist Laurie Anderson, ex-Talking Heads frontman David Byrne, The Art Guys, Lee Ranaldo from Sonic Youth, Christina Kubisch, Andrew Deutsch, Stephen Vitiello and winner of the Golden Lion for Best Artist in the 2011 Venice Biennale, Christian Marclay are also featured. A number of prominent local and regional artists such as sculptor Joe Griffith, Tony Wong Palms and Theo Wujcik (who met and photographed Cage in Florida in the 1980s) have contributed new works. Plus, several original pieces (drawings, mesostic manuscripts, early lithographs, a monotype, Busoni Chart for HPSCHD score and a plexigram) all created by Cage are positioned on gallery walls with the artists own (rather unorthodox) installation method derived through chance operations.

Classes are held on Tuesdays, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., year-round. Lessons are free after one-time payment of $10, which covers lifetime membership to the center. Dress is casual and partners are not necessary. Wear flat shoes with non-slip soles. Beginners are welcome. Contact Gillian Carney at 603-9828 to sign up or email fortmyersdancers@hotmail. com Wa-ke Hatchee Recreation Center is at 16760 Bass Road, Fort Myers. On the development of the exhibition, Ron Bishop, director of the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery, said, Jade Dellinger has done a remarkable job of selecting artists and work that reveal the impact of the critical thinking of John Cage. There are few people who have made a larger contribution, and this exhibit clearly shows how artists around the world continue to develop ideas today that have links to John Cage. Down to the installation and presentation of this exhibition, the presence of John Cage is felt and realized here in ways that will surprise, if not mesmerize. Central to the exhibition at Edison State College, Things Not Seen Before features a special interactive installation of John Cages 33-1/3. Conceived in 1969 as a visitor participation piece, Cages 33-1/3 encourages gallery-goers to engage freely with a room full of record players and stacks of vinyl LPs. However, as the composer never specified LP titles for use in the installation, a prominent group guest curators have been invited to submit Top 10 picks to fill record bins in the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery, including Iggy Pop, Mark Mothersbaugh of Devo, Richie Ramone of The Ramones, Pauline Oliveros, William Wegman, Graham Nash, Bryan Ferry of Roxy Music, Joan La Barbara, David Harrington of Kronos Quartet, Ed Ruscha and others. As artist/participant and Sonic Youth guitarist Lee Ranaldo recently recalled, I remember John talking about how he didnt like to listen to a record more than once. What was the point? If one gave oneself over to the experience the first time, then why repeat? He didnt really care for the idea of music as fixed in time on a black platter. He said hed rather open the window and listen to the trucks rolling by, or whatever else was coming in the constantly changing music of NOW rather than a packaged simulacra of then. Those comments have long stayed with me, in spite of the fact that I love both making records and playing records... often the same ones over and over again. The duration of 33-1/3 is indeterminate. When first performed at the University of California/Davis, the audience interacted with Cages record installation for nearly four hours. As Cage would have expected, the work remains silent when there are no visitors to interact with it and cacophonous (or perhaps most musical) when fully occupied by audience-performers. As Cage famously surmised, Until I die, there will be sounds. And they will continue following my death. One need not fear about the future of music.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 17, 201228 From page 1Animal Sanctuaryand wildlife education. One cannot successfully save threatened animals longterm without the support and well-being of the local people; poaching cannot be an attractive economic alternative. Its Wild To ensure and establish survival of rare, threatened and endangered wildlife species through protection, relocation and reintroduction. Success requires an integrated approach involving natural resources and people; short-term, we save threatened species. Wales-Baillie also explained that in the Zulu kingdom, water is as important as land for the people and the wildlife. To that end, her major project is creating an effective and reliable water system for purposes throughout the Khumbula Thina Mountain Sanctuary. In this area, water is far more valuable than oil, because there isnt any, she said. In 2005, using her own dowsing rods, Wales-Baillie discovered six bore holes on the property. Currently, only one of those holes is operational, pumping water from the southern area of the sanctuary in order to serve the facilities 23 water holes, five dams and two swamps. Right now, were getting sufficient water, she explained. But I worry about the dry periods and what that will do to our system. Electricity is terribly expensive. Wales-Baillie has started a fundraising campaign in order to finance accessing another one of the bore holes found near the northern section of her property. Approximately 110 meters below the surface of the earth, an underground river could provide 144,000 litres of water per hour. We would also be able to provide water for the surrounding community and their livestock, because the bore hole is right near the northern gate, said WalesBaillie. The conservationist estimates that she needs to raise nearly $50,000 in order to pay for the labor, steel pipes, pumping equipment and infrastructure. They would also like to purchase additional land in order to accommodate their growing number of protected animal species living within the refuge. That water must be utilized, she added. If I lose my (existing) pump, I have only three days worth of water for all of our animals. Wales-Baillie is appealing to islanders, and any people who are interested in assisting wildlife in their struggle for survival, to contribute to the Khumbula Thina Trust. She can accept donations by phone at either 304-261-3660 or 304947-7309, or donors may send an email to twoleopard@aol.com. Any amount, even small, helps us towards our goal, she said. And all donations are tax-deductible, because we are a 501(c)3 not-for-profit. In addition, Wales-Baillie would like to invite those who make a donation to visit the Khumbula Thina Mountain Sanctuary. Id like it to become a home for all Americans to visit the consulate general even has her own key to our front gate, she adds with a smile. We have a volunteer house which sleeps eight and 10 luxury tents. You can come for a visit, stay on our grounds or at a local lodge. The refuge is also noted for its scenery which varies from mountainous to flatlands in a subtropical climate. There are no mosquitoes, which makes it quite comfortable all year long, said Wales-Baillie, who noted that she will post the progress of her fundraising efforts on the Khumbula Thina Trust website, www.khumbula.org.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is a good time for hardworking Bovines to take a break from their hectic on-the-job schedules to bask in the unconditional love and support of friends and family. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Pay attention to what you hear in the workplace. You could pick up some hints about possible changes. Meanwhile, a new infusion of creative energy sets in by weeks end. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Try to be more flexible in dealing with a suddenly difficult situation, whether its on the job or in the home. Others might have some good points to offer. Listen to them. LEO (July 23 to August 22) You might think youre not getting the royal treatment you deserve. But be careful not to become a royal pain by complaining about it. Be patient and allow things to work out. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Watch that penchant for being super-judgmental at work. It might create a bad impression with someone whose decisions could determine the course of your career. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Youve been your usual busy-bee self, gathering nectar wherever you can find it. But nows a good time to kick back, relax and just enjoy smelling the roses. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) That pesky personal situation seems to be improving. But change comes slowly, so be patient. Expect someone to bring more positive news by weeks end. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Whoa! Ease up on that hectic pace youve been putting yourself through. Take time to recharge your energy levels before going full gallop again. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Try to be intrigued, not intimidated, by the issues youre suddenly facing, and youll be ahead of the game. Dont be afraid to demand answers to your questions. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) New associates freezing you out of their inner circle? Never mind. Put a warm smile on that friendly face of yours, and youll soon thaw them all down to size. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Your wise guidance helps colleagues agree to compromise and move forward. Meanwhile, there are still vital issues you need to deal with in your personal life. BORN THIS WEEK: You enjoy being free with your emotions, but you also can exercise disciplined focus. You would make a fine artist. On Aug. 24, 79, after centuries of dormancy, Mount Vesuvius erupts in southern Italy, burying the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. In the 18th century, the cities were rediscovered and excavated, providing an unprecedented archaeological record of the everyday life of an ancient civilization. On Aug. 25, 1835, the first in a series of six articles announcing the supposed discovery of life on the moon appears in the New York Sun newspaper. The hoax articles offered vivid description: enormous amethyst crystals and lush vegetation, as well as animals such as unicorns, two-legged beavers and furry, winged humanoids resembling bats. On Aug. 23, 1902, pioneering cookbook author Fannie Farmer, who changed the way Americans prepare food by advocating the use of standardized measurements in recipes, opens Miss Farmers School of Cookery in Boston. On Aug. 20, 1920, the owners of four Ohio League teams -the Akron Pros, Canton Bulldogs, Cleveland Indians and Dayton Triangles -meet to form a new professional football league. Football star Jim Thorpe was nominated as president of the new league. On Aug. 21, 1959, President Dwight Eisenhower signs a proclamation admitting Hawaii into the Union as the 50th state. The president also issued an order for an American flag featuring 50 stars arranged in staggered rows. On Aug. 22, 1962, President Charles De Gaulle of France survives one of several assassination attempts against him thanks to the superior handling performance of the presidential automobile, the Citroen DS 19. During the attack, a hail of 140 bullets shattered the cars rear window and punctured all four of its tires. On Aug. 26, 1974, Charles Lindbergh, the first man to accomplish a solo nonstop flight across the Atlantic Ocean in 1927, dies in Maui, Hawaii, at the age of 72. To reduce weight on the plane during his famous flight, everything that was not essential was left out: radio, gas gauge, night-flying lights, navigation equipment and parachute. Its not known who made the following sage observation: Arguing about whether the glass is half-full or half-empty misses the point, which is this: The bartender cheated you. The longest war in history lasted 335 years and resulted in exactly zero casualties. In 1651, the Netherlands and the Isles of Scilly off Great Britain declared war upon each other, but nothing ever came of the conflict and it was soon forgotten. Finally, in 1986, the two combatants agreed to a peace treaty. Do you suffer from cacodemonomania? If you believe that you are possessed by an evil spirit, you do. The worlds smallest mammal can be found only in Thailand and Myanmar. Weighing about as much as a dime, Kittis hog-nosed bat is sometimes called the bumblebee bat due to its diminutive size. You might be surprised to learn that an eagle can kill a young deer and fly away with it. The Beatles was not the first band in which John Lennon played. Those previous groups obviously didnt work out, though; in fact, at one point Lennon broke a washboard over a bandmates head during a dispute. After the Beatles success, though, Lennon apologized in style: He bought the poor guy a supermarket. Those who study such things say that armadillos can be housebroken. At sea level, water boils at 212 degrees Fahrenheit. At the top of Mount Everest, though, the lower air pressure reduces the boiling point to 156 degrees. If you recycle one glass jar, youll save enough energy to power a TV for three hours. The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because generally they are the same people. -G.K.

They are added for a multitude of reasons, including but not limited to safety, convenience and efficiency. We will start out with a few of them that I think are good or helpful, and as stated, these are the add-ons that should be part of an air conditioning system. A time delay This is a device that prevents your outside system from starting up just after it shuts down. This is really bad for the compressor and really stresses it out. This is very useful when you have people with different comfort levels. One person walks by and thinks Boy, is it hot in here and turns the temperature down; the next person walks by and is freezing and turns the temperature back up. Sound familiar? A float switch This is a device that tells the system to stop running if there is water in places it shouldnt be. This helps prevent water damage due to a/c back ups. Great device for absentee owners. Humidistat This is a control that runs your a/c in your absence, and its used to control humidity. When we are not in our homes for extended periods of time, our biggest concern is to control humidity to prevent the growth of microorganisms. It also says a great deal of money on your electric bill, usually paying for itself with six months. A hard start device A hard start is like a battery, it stores energy until its needed. These are useful devices when used properly. For the most part, they are used to help an older compressor that is too worn to start on its own. Now lets look at what I am not that big of a fan of (no pun intended). Programmable thermostats Programmable thermostats are a great device, but they are not for everyone.

Its one of the finest pieces of drama Ive seen in local theater. It begins with the murder of Billy, an abusive tyrant who has terrorized his family, sexually abusing his two daughters Janet and Susan for decades. Hes also a wife beater. The play is about the conspiracy of silence that surrounds the family. Not only are the family members silent about what is going on, so is the community. The set is stark with shelves of labeled boxes. We eventually learn why they are there. Billy is obsessive about tidiness. The glass should be five inches from the table edge and if anyone butters his toast in the wrong direction he hits them. The daughters, in their mid thirties, unable to tolerate their father any longer, decide to kill him. What follows is the arrest of all three women and conversations with the police, the lawyers and the prison psychiatrist. The play looks at the effects on the abused and is made up of a series of short scenes, with quick blackouts in between, that reveal bit by bit what goes on in the minds of the characters. Real life husband and wife J. Mitchell Haley and Joann Haley, as Billy and Mary, excel in their performances. Kym Yaeger Hoffman as Janet and Robin Sharee Murray as Susan are equally as good. The emotions shown by the characters have a powerful effect on the audience. The playwright examines why no one in the family asks for help. Christine Kobie effectively portrays an investigator, psychiatrist and lawyer. At one point during questioning, all three women say together, We dont want to talk about that. The performances are faultless. Mitchell Haley lets us see Billy as obsessive, violent and repulsive. He also makes us understand what he went through as a child with an abusive mother. Joann Haley is unforgettable as Mary, the downtrodden mother who was physically and mentally abused by her own father. Director Ken Bryant succeeds in having his characters show real dramatic tension, grabbing the audiences attention. This is a thought-provoking and memorable piece of theater. Five Kinds of Silence continues Friday and Saturday evenings through August 25. Dont miss it. For tickets, call 218-0481 or visit www.laboratorytheaterflorida.com. The Laboratory Theater of Florida is located at 1634 Woodford Avenue, corner of Woodford and Second Streets in downtown Fort Myers. J.

PGA TipsCan A Wii Make Your Golf Game Better?by Matt Oakley, PGA Golf ProfessionalDuring the slower summer months on Sanibel, I get a chance to have a little time off from the hectic pace of the busy winter season. On one of these days off, I was messing around playing my Wii. I noticed in Wii Fitness that there was a driving range feature. So I thought, Why not try it? I turned it on and the first thing it did was to tell me to take a few practice swings on the pressure sensitive foot board that you stand on to check my balance and center of gravity. I thought, This is silly, I am a PGA Professional. I dont need a video game to tell me if I have a good swing. I took my address position and it told me that I had too much weight towards the heels of my feet. I made an adjustment and got my address position balanced. Then, I took the first practice swing (you hold the controller instead of a real club). After the swing, it gives you an option of seeing a computer-generated simulation of your swing with tracers to show weight distribution at every point during the swing. It said that my weight distribution at the top of my swing was too far outside of my right foot and that at the finish position my weight was too far outside my left foot. Here is what I learned from this about my swing and why it might just help you: Balance At Address If you are not balanced at address, this leads to tension. Tension at the start of the swing leads to corrections throughout the swing to get back to balance. Our body will do whatever it takes to retain balance. This protects the head. Our instinct in everything we do is to not fall to protect the head. For example, if your weight distribution at address is to have too much weight towards the heels, your body will fight to get weight towards the toes while in motion so you wont fall (and injure the head). Weight Distribution At The Top Of The Swing At the top of the swing, your weight should be on the inside portion of the back foot. This creates torque that you can feel on the inside of the back knee. This torque creates club head speed, which increases distance. If the weight is too much to the outside of the back foot, your center of balance is too far behind you. Not only is there no torque, your body will have to make a big move forward with the head to start the downswing to try to regain balance. Weight Distribution At The Finish Position When you are finished with your swing, your weight should be on the inside portion of your front foot and front knee. This shows that you made a balanced swing. What Weight Distribution Errors Cause During The Swing Having too much weight on the outside of my back foot at the top of the swing shows I moved my head backwards during the back swing. Once my head went too far back, balance tells us that I would have to make a big move forward during the downswing to keep balance (and keep from falling to protect the head instinctively). Most likely, that means my head would be in front of the golf ball at impact, which leads to chunked shots and the inability to square up the club face at impact. So, thats why I seem to hit so many fat and weak shots to the right. What started at a lazy day off playing a video game actually proved to be very helpful to my golf game. It reminded me of one of my favorite sayings: Its what you learn after you know it all that counts. 1. Bill Gullickson won 20 games in 1991. 2.

The Sanibel School Fund was started in 1998 to fund the addition of a middle school, expanding the school so that it now has kindergarten through eighth grades. Money raised by the School Fund and PTA provides many resources and enhancements that the shortfalls in the Lee County School System budget cannot, including educational software, classroom computers, the foreign language program, steel drums, a music keyboard lab, supplies for classrooms and much more. Sanibel School Fund committee leader Art Cassell has been helping plan the Blue Ribbon Golf Classic event. Cassell has been involved with the Sanibel School, volunteering for many years in fundraising as well as on the School Advisory Council. Sanctuary Golf Club members feel the School is a big part of what makes our islands so special, just like Ding Darling, SSCF and the citys sustainable growth initiatives, said Cassell. The school is a reason people decide to move here. Many members have made a longterm commitment to help the school keep its reputation as a top-performing school as well as its designation as a Blue Ribbon School. The Sanctuary members committed over $250,000 toward the $1 million raised in 2004-05 to provide enhancements for the school, they jump started the capital campaign for us, remembered Sanibel School Fund president Terry Igo. Art Cassell, Terry Lautenbach and other fellow IBM retirees provided most of the computers. Other Sanctuary members followed their lead and continue to support the school. Today, about $90,000 is needed annually to for the foreign language program, technology, music equipment, classroom supplies ... helping to maintain the schools Blue Ribbon status. Art came up with the name Blue Ribbon Golf Classic. Hes always been there for the school. The Sanibel Schools success in earning National Blue Ribbon status is due, in part, to community support of these fundraising activities. The U.S. Department of Education awards National Blue Ribbon status based on overall academic excellence or for success in closing achievement gaps.

And, because windows vary so much in style, construction and function, they always end up playing an extremely important role in every decorating plan. Here are some things you need to think about before planning your next custom window treatment design: Function How is the window being used? Do you need to block outdoor light? Is privacy your priority? Or, do you have a beautiful view that needs capturing? Focal Points Are your windows a natural dramatic architectural feature of your room? If so, you have a built-in focal point, and should plan your treatments accordingly. If not, then consider working with a professional decorator to make your window treatments true show stoppers! Style Whats yours? Casual? Formal? Traditional? Contemporary? Window treatment designs vary greatly by design style, so think about the ultimate style and feeling youd like to incorporate into their design. Challenges Are your windows too small? Too large? A carefully designed window treatment can actually be a clever cover-up to any window challenge. Because there are so many fabulous window treatment design options available today, its wise,to start doing your homework early. And remember, by working with a professional decorator, your window treatments are guaranteed to be the perfect design and function solution.

Insurance Tip Citizens Eases Up by Marge MeekWhile Citizens has been suggesting many changes to its insurance, a couple of them have been voted down. The move to increase wind rates on new homes at a much higher rate was determined to be a short term gain and one that could impact home sales, so all policy holders new or renewing customers will have the same rate. The annual statutory rate increase remains at 10 percent. This year the approved rate increase across the state is 8.9 percent, which is an average with our area probably getting a higher percent as has been the historical precedent. Another issue that Citizens declined was the move to put a $15,000 cap on non-flood water damage, such as sewer backup, for those who have their homeowners insurance through Citizens. This is one item that will be kept; however, due to several other reductions in insurance coverage now imbedded in the Citizens homeowners policies, the gap in Citizens homeowners makes this a policy of last resort. Commercial lines policies are going to see overall increases. Condominium owners could see an average of 9.9 percent increase and renters a 10 percent increase. The rate filings were sent to the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation where the final decision will be made after public hearings.

A programmable thermostat can be complicated to set if one is not familiar with it, and can easily become more trouble than its worth. Everything that needs to be accomplished in this situation can be done with a non-programmable thermostat and a humidistat. If you are a full-time resident and like gadgets, they do have their place. We have seen on many occasions homes that have programmables and are put in the by-pass mode. While its not a long list of products, it can certainly help you figure out what may or may not be useful in your case. If your a/c contractor is offering to sell you one of these, always try to ask some questions: What does it do? Why do I need it? How will it benefit me?

42 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 17, 2012 School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, Now that school has started, I want to read with my children as often as possible. They are in elementary school. Do you have any suggestions that will help our reading time together? Jon V., Fort Myers Jon, Reading with your children is one of the most important activities that you can do. If possible try to read with each child individually even if its only for 10 to 15 minutes. The individual attention you give your child during a reading session is valuable. Below are some tips on reading with your children. The first tips are for the actual process of decoding the words followed by some suggestions to assist with reading comprehension: Have your child read aloud to you every night. Choose a quiet place, free from distractions, including the phone, TV/ computer, for your child to do his nightly reading assignments. As your child reads, point out spelling and sound patterns such as cat, pat, hat or other patterns that you see. When your child reads aloud to you and makes a mistake, point out the words she has missed, you say the word and have her say it correctly. After your child has stopped to selfcorrect a word he has read, have him go back and reread the entire sentence from the beginning to make sure he understands what the sentence is saying. Ask your child to tell you in her own words what happened in a story. To check your childs understanding of what he is reading, occasionally pause and ask your child questions about the characters and events in the story. Ask your child why she thinks a character acted in a certain way and ask your child to support her answer with information from the story. Before getting to the end of a story, ask your child what he thinks will happen next and why. Dont forget to read a story at bedtime too even though you have read together earlier in the day. Children who have been read aloud to are more likely to develop a love of reading, increased vocabulary development, language cognition, voice recognition, image recognition and increased imagination. Also. describing pictures in the book, explaining the meaning of the story and encouraging your children to talk about what has been read to them and to ask questions can improve their understanding of the world and their social skills. Beyond these academic benefits, the time spent together develops an emotional closeness, a connection that comes from a shared interest and the development of that connection through the years. 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.

Florida Rolls Out New Guide For Senior DriversFlorida has something new specifically designed for aging drivers. The Florida Guide for Aging Drivers is a handy book available at no cost to senior drivers, compliments of the Florida Safe Mobility for Life Coalition. The coalition, a group comprised of professionals from 28 organizations, created the guide to give aging drivers a comprehensive resource with the most up-to-date information available. Users will find safe driving tips, licensing information, lists of resources, and community contacts for every county in the state. Basically, the guide offers just about everything an aging driver needs to be more proactive about staying safe on the road. This book compliments the website www.SafeandMobileSeniors.org and is just the right size for the cars glove box and available through the: Safe Mobility for Life Resource Center 636 West Call Street Tallahassee, FL 32306 safe-mobility-for-life@fsu.edu Why does Florida need an aging driver guide? Actually, it makes perfect sense when you consider that Florida leads the nation with 18 percent of its population age 65 and older. In fact, by the year 2030, over 27 percent will be over age 65, with half of those 75 or older. Mirroring this growth, an increasing proportion of drivers in Florida are getting older. Currently, nearly 3 million drivers in Florida are over age 65. Most people experience a steady decline in some of the skills needed to safely drive as we get older, however, these changes do not affect all drivers at the same age or in the same way, said Gail Holley, Florida Department of Transportations Safe Mobility for Life Program and Research Manager. It is important for everyone to understand the impact that aging can have on their driving and learn the warning signs and resources that are available to them so they can make the transition when driving may no longer be a safe option. The guide is designed to help aging drivers strike a balance between safety and the need for independence. The hope is that users of the guide will take the time to consider their driving abilities, take steps to improve their driving skills, explore other transportation options if needed, and start making a plan for retirement from driving if it becomes necessary in the future.

I see a common problem among spouses who own each others life insurance policies. It would seem perfectly reasonable for a husband to own a life insurance policy on his wifes life where he is the primary beneficiary and vice versa. Im here to tell you that when spouses own each others life insurance policies, practical problems arise. Take the example where wife owns the policy on husbands life. In this fact pattern, it is not uncommon for wife to be the primary beneficiary and their children to be named as the contingent (alternate) beneficiaries if wife predeceases husband. Assume we have that example and now assume further that wife predeceases her husband. Remember that wife is named as the owner to the policy that insures husbands wife. Since she is now deceased, wifes estate now owns the policy. The only way to transfer the insurance policy to husband is for him to open a probate estate and transfer the policy to himself, assuming he is the beneficiary of her estate. This can be costly and time consuming. Husband may not care to open the probate and instead keep the policy in wifes name. When husband dies, the children are still the beneficiary since the primary beneficiary (wife) predeceased husband. The children would simply need to produce both of their parents death certificates to make a claim on the policy proceeds. So, whats the problem? Theres a few problems actually. Lets say that husband wants to borrow against the cash surrender value of the policy during his lifetime. He wont be able to do it without probating the policy and transferring it into his own name. Assume further that wife has a taxable estate. The cash surrender value approximates the value of the policy for estate tax purposes. If that cash surrender value needs to be tapped in order to pay any estate tax that may be associated with the value of the policy, there is no way to do that without opening up a probate and transferring the ownership of the policy. Take another scenario where one of the children predeceases their father. In this case, husband may want to name alternate beneficiaries on the policy for the child who died. But he cant change the beneficiaries because he does not own the policy. Wifes estate does. He would have to probate her estate and take ownership of the policy through a court process in order to update the beneficiary designations. So, how should married couples own their life insurance policies? It is important for married couples to consult with their estate-planning attorney to ensure that the ownership of the life insurance policies fits into their estate plan. Generally speaking, you commonly find four different options. The first option is where the insured owns their own policy. In other words, husband owns the policy on his life and wife owns the policy on her life. If husband dies, for example, there is not going to be any probate on the ownership of the policy since the beneficiary now makes a claim for the policy proceeds. Another option is for the married couple to create irrevocable life insurance trusts (ILITs). ILITs are commonly used to remove the value of the life insurance from the couples estate for federal estate tax purposes. ILITs may also be used for asset protection purposes. A third option is for the insureds revocable living trust to own the policy. Since the trust assets avoid the probate process, dealing with the policy is not a problem. Yet another option is for the children to own the policy. The danger here is that the children have the ability to change the beneficiary of the policy. This could result in the surviving spouse not receiving the insurance proceeds. There are also gift tax issues as when the children own the policy each premium payment constitutes a gift to the children. Determining the ownership of a policy is only the first step. The married couple must next name the policys beneficiary. This might be more complicated than it first appears. Couples who have revocable living trusts or ILITs often name the trust as the primary beneficiary or sometimes the trust is the contingent beneficiary depending upon the familys estate plan. Dont overlook common mistakes and planning pitfalls when designating the owner and beneficiary of life insurance. It doesnt hurt to put some careful thought into the process. Craig R. Hersch.

Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: I am a widow and have been going out with a gentleman whom I really like. Dating is new to him as well just this year. The one thing I am noticing is that we only seem to go to movies and the same dinner place for a bite after. How can I gently make a suggestion to try something different without making him feel like I dont like his suggestions?A: In todays world, it is perfectly acceptable for you to invite your friend to do something. Here are some thoughts and you can take it from here: 1. Invite him to your place and cook him a nice dinner. If you dont cook, take a cooking class together. 2. If your friend likes to dance, you could go dancing or take dance lessons whether it is two-step or tango. 3. If you live in the city, take a day road trip to the country or vice-versa. Plan an outing for an activity either way. 4. If you like to star-gaze, check and see if there is a local astronomy club near you to go stargazing. Or just go where it is dark and find your own place. 5. Try some new music or sport event. In the summer a lot of places have chamber music or symphonies that are free. You might even be able to watch a new sporting event at a local park or recreation facility. If you are in the city, there should be a professional team sport of some sort. 6. If you have friends you would enjoy inviting along for an outing, that can be fun, too. And add to the newness. To advertise in the Island Sun Call 395-1213 45 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 17, 2012


Dr. DavePrescription For FITby Dr. Dave HepburnWe are all aware that fitness increases both quantity and quality of life as it decreases morbidity and mortality. While every third infomercial gives us the impression that we are in the throes of a major fitness epidemic, in fact only eight percent of us engage in regular vigorous exercise. Perhaps you have a piece of exercise equipment in your home that stands as an expensive monument to a fleeting impulse of good intention. Perhaps the treadmill is now being used by the kids for a science experiment involving hamsters, the cat and a stopwatch. The NordicTrack is used to sort laundry. Why do we stop? Problem 1: We dont vary our exercises. We repeat the same exercise until we start to loathe it. Variety is the spice of maintaining fitness. Please change your exercise daily. Problem 2: We go too hard for our body, hurt ourselves, then quit. Take two marathons then call me in the morning. Problem 3: We are too busy to care for our health. Funny how that changes after the first heart attack. These problems can be overcome with an exercise prescription called FIT, an acronym for Frequenct, Intensity and Time. Frequency This is the easy part of the prescription, except that to be effective it requires a lifetime commitment. Aerobic exercise 3 to 4 times per week and a workout with weights twice a week. The key is finding variety, also known as cross training (though some say that me wearing Spandex is more cross-dressing than cross training). Repeating the same exercise can not only be dull and mentally onerous, it can in fact be counterproductive. Repetitive use of the same muscles and bone, with neglect to others, can cause muscle tear and stress fractures. Find several different activities you enjoy and be open to new ideas. Recently, my athletic daughter brought home the Advanced Tae-Bo videotape featuring Billy Blanks, great grandson of Vlad the Impaler. In the never-ending search for new forms of enjoyable exercise, I decided to give this newest exercise craze a whirl. For a hockey player, how tough can it be? Soon, I found myself bouncing and twisting with an odd assortment of Tae-Boers, some who grinned maniacally as they boxed and kicked imaginary muggers or future ex-husbands. A few grapevines later and several minutes of Billy telling me how much he loved me, Cmon, give me some! he barked. I yelled back, Ill give you some, you weenie, lets see you put the skates on and...OUCH! Kicking too hard, I removed some muscle from a happy resting place from where it hadnt moved in years, to a spot it did not like. Intensity Like Revenue Canada returning a tax refund, start low and go slow. Should you harbour a medical problem that involves vital organs (i.e. heart, spleen, hairpiece), see your doctor. Doctor, I walk everywhere but I just cant lose any weight. Walking burns the same amount of oxygen as playing cards. To ensure you are becoming aerobic, you must reach your target heart rate (THR) when you exercise. Many formulas exist to calculate THR. The easiest for the average healthy adult is THR = (220 your age) x 3/4. When first beginning to exercise, use (220 your age) x 1/2 as your THR for a few weeks to ensure your heart can handle it. While some enjoy individual sports, others can reach their THR easier if they are in competition. My boys enjoy competition. A simple chess game in the Hepburn hovel often ends up enlisting iron skillets and a SWAT team. THR is maintained until bail. Time (Duration) A 5 to 10 minute warm up and cool down phase should be used to gradually get your heart rate up to and back from its THR. You want to maintain the THR for 20 to 30 minutes initially and then over the next few weeks increase to 40 to 60 minutes. At 20 minutes of a good workout, you actually start burning fat. More than 60 minutes really does not improve your aerobic capacity all that much. If youre trying to lose weight dont eat for three hours after exercise, when insulin is so much more efficient. When your body becomes more oxygen efficient you, in fact, will burn more calories even when you sleep at night while dreaming of a roundhouse steak and a roundhouse kick to the uvula of...

How can I help myself now? GH, Decatur, Illinois I commend you for your enthusiastic quest for wellness. After writing this column for 14 years, one point I cannot stress enough: Inflammation is the primary underlying factor contributing to cardiometabolic risk. When I say inflammation, Im not referring to swollen fingers; I mean full body (systemic) inflammation. Think of it as a fire driving up your insulin (bad), messing your hormone balance (bad), increasing pain-causing compounds called cytokines (bad) and squeezing off blood flow to your major organs, like the brain and heart. Health care today emphasizes medications to treat symptoms of heart disease, rather than trying to put the fire out. One example is with cholesterol reducing drugs. Fine by me, but medication alone doesnt put out your smoldering systemic fire. Same thing with insulin resistance, detected easily in a blood test. Take all the blood sugar reducing medications you want to, they wont put out the fire (inflammation) either. This is covered entirely in my Diabetes Without Drugs book, where I help you avoid becoming a number junkie, a person who chases down numbers with medications. The assumption is that it equals good health. It doesnt. To adequately reduce your risks, I recommend proper diagnostic testing first. The way we measure blood pressure is wrong. The British are ahead of us, they do 24-hour monitoring as standard procedure. Thats excellent because one office pressure wont tell you whats going on centrally, in the brain and heart, it only measures peripheral pressure. You never want your CRP to go over 3 mcg/ ml because this blocks the angiotensin II receptor, cranking out enormous amounts of oxidative stress (think fire). The B vitamins reduce CRP so a B-complex is a good idea. Additionally, consider potassium, 3 to 5 grams per day (absolutely ask your doctor). Physicians sometimes prescribe beta blockers. As a general rule, they dont do anyone a favor, and are known to increase diabetes by about 5 percent a year. More simple stuff. Vitamin B6 is a natural calcium channel blocker, mild diuretic and it improves insulin resistance. Awesome, considering its $10 a month if you take 100 to 200 mg per day. Also, alpha lipoic acid, about 200 mg three times daily. It improves endothelial dysfunction and insulin resistance; used with Acetyl L-carnitine, its a one-two punch. Youll need a little biotin on board to prevent depletion from the alpha lipoic acid. My suggestions are intended to shine a flashlight of hope. I hate when people are told Lets wait and see. Wait for what? A heart attack? If you like how I think, its because I attend medical seminars offered by the Institute for Functional Medicine. Find a doctor at their website (www.functionalmedicine.org) where they speak this language. Just click on Find A Practitioner or call 800-228-0622 for more information.

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, We retired from the cold north to the warmth of the south. There are thousands of people just like us living in this area. It is very disturbing to read in the newspaper complaints from the younger people about our driving and what a menace we are on the roads. I am sorry that they feel this way, but we who are driving have passed the required licensing procedure. What is disturbing to us is why we should have to pay school taxes for your children when our children are long gone and we dont benefit from the schools. Have you ever thought that maybe you have jobs because of our needs? What do you think, Lizzie and Pryce? Seymour Dear Seymour, Young people have a very valid complaint about some older citizens driving. I am amazed at how some seniors were able to pass the licensing procedure. Older people hate to give up their wheels and independence. Stricter tests, I personally think, should be enforced. However, taxes for schools is a different matter. Our new longevity is directly related to more educated people, dentists, doctors, engineers, pharmacists and therapists have all made their contribution and they all got their start in grade school. Each generation has their own physical and emotional needs. Try if you can to show an example of a person aging with dignity and grace. Lizzie Dear Seymour, Who cares what the younger generation is saying about your driving. Everyone has something or someone to complain about. Let the comments go in one car door and out the other. I absolutely do not agree with agebased driving tests. I think it is discriminatory. Also, before there is a wholesale retraction of older individuals driving privilege, there needs to be more thought into how dependent individuals will become, not being able to go to the grocery store, the drug store or for their appointments. Pryce Lizzie and Pryces email address is momandmeaging@hotmail.com.

The donor has challenged the community of Southwest Florida to raise $20 million, which the donor has committed to match dollar for dollar for each contribution. The donor will match all Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida Capital Campaign contributions from May 16 of 2012 to May 16 of 2014. When fulfilled, the matching gift of $20 million will be the single largest philanthropic gift in Southwest Floridas history. This truly remarkable gift is one that will rewrite the future for the children of Southwest Florida. The vision of building a world-class childrens hospital is now within reach, said Sharon A. MacDonald, chief foundation officer for Lee Memorial Health System. We hope the tremendous generosity of this pledge inspires the community to help build Americas newest childrens hospital. The capital campaign supports construction of a new state-of-the art, 128bed (with expansion capabilities to 160 beds) comprehensive pediatric health care facility on the grounds of HealthPark Medical Center in South Fort Myers. The building will consolidate into one location the medical and ancillary specialty services required to treat critically ill or injured children in a five county region. The new facility is expected to open in 2016. This generous pledge puts us another step closer to making the new childrens hospital a reality, said Jim Nathan, president of Lee Memorial Health System. Even during these economically stressed times the demand for childrens services in our community has grown, and our current facilities are often at capacity. This impressive new building will expand our capabilities and keep childrens care close and their families as close to home as possible. All gifts to the Capital Campaign are eligible for the match and include but are not limited to estate gifts, multi-year pledges, corporate donations, grants, special event sponsorships and auction revenues. The Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida is the only comprehensive childrens hospital between St. Petersburg and Miami and provides life-saving health care and treatment to children from Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Hendry and Glades counties. To make a gift or learn more about the many giving opportunities available, contact the Lee Memorial Health System Foundation office at 343-6950 or visit www.ChildrensHospitalGoal.org.

I am an 8-year-old white male Bichon Frise. Im shy and timid, but thats only because the shelter is a big place and there are lots of other pets and people here. When Im with just a few people or pets, Im more myself affectionate, friendly and very cute. Hey, I know I dont look like a Bichon that much, but thats because I was very matted and had to be shaved. I will look like I should in no time. My adoption fee is $8 (regularly $75) during Animal Services Dog Days of Summer Adoption Promotion. Hello, our names are Georgie and Seth. We are both 5-month-old black male domestic short hairs. We are tweens, but you can adopt us both for just $8. We were in foster care for four months since we came to the shelter as very little babies. We are very affectionate and get along well with other pets so wed fit right in with your family. Our adoption fee is $8 (regularly $50) during Animal Services Dog Days of Summer Adoption Promotion. For information about this weeks pets, call 5337387 (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, ageappropriate 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. Georgie ID# 534212 Seth ID# 534209 Boo Berry ID# 540839 photos by squaredogphoto.com PAWS PetsLuna and Narciss were found in an abandoned, hot car together. They have been neutered and spayed and given all of their shots. Now, they are ready for their new home. We would love to see them get adopted together because they sleep, play and eat together in their foster home, which is too full at the moment. Luna is a female with tan coat with darker brown tips. Narciss is a male with charcoal gray and white markings. They are both approximately 1 year old. If you can help, call Tabitha at 633-1574 or John at 633-1313. PAWS recently had a cat trap go missing off of Palm Street in the Sanibel Center Neighborhood. Please contact PAWS if you have any information about its where abouts. Narciss and Luna
