He made the comment at the Kanzius Cancer Research Foundation National Conference in Erie, Pennsylvania. Kanzius external RF generator had been in testing for several years as a new treatment for cancer. The idea was to inject gold nanoparticles into tumors and zap them with RFG radio waves. The tumor cells and not healthy cells attracted the gold nanoparticles. The result in petri dishes and small animal testing was cancer cells dead, healthy cells unharmed and no side-effects. The concept has revolutionary implications on the treatment of cancer since, if successful, it would eliminate debilitating side effects of the current treatments and dramatically improve the quality of life for patients undergoing treatment. Islander Kanzius invented the technology while he was undergoing treatment for leukemia. He died of the disease in 2009. Curley now says the device does not need the nanoparticles. We were surprised to find that radio waves without nanoparticles or chemotherapy kill between 10 percent and 30 percent of pancreatic and primary liver cancer cells, Curley said. Combine it with common chemo drugs, you not only kill the cancer cells, the cancer doesnt grow as resistant to the chemotherapy as it typically does. here are two implications to the announcement: 1) The effectiveness of the machine increases since it would allow doctors more latitude in using the technology and 2) it may be a short cut to human trials since the machine itself could be submitted to FDA continued on page 5 Marianne Kanzius, widow of John Kanzius, founder of the cancer technology, in the MD Anderson Lab Dr. Steven Curley, lead researcher

Sanibel-Captiva Lions Club NewsChristmas Trees Are Coming Soonsubmitted by a Lion, BobThe annual SanibelCaptiva Lions Charities Christmas Tree sale will be open for business on Sunday, November 25 at 10 a.m. The sale will continue every day thereafter from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. until December 23 or sell out. The sale is held at the Baileys Shopping Center between The Grog Shop and Island Cinema. These trees are all Fraser firs from the mountains of North Carolina. The trees range from five to 10 feet tall. At the time of purchase, the Lions will provide a fresh cut at the bottom of the trunk and trim off the lower branches so the tree can be placed in a stand. Delivery is available at an extra charge. Customers are encouraged to shop early as longevity of a cut tree is best if the base is placed into water as soon as possible and kept out of the sun and wind. All proceeds of the sale are used for the Lions charitable causes including help for the vision impaired and other local causes.

Organic Nutritious Healthy Lifestyle Organic Nutritious Healthy Lifestyle Sanibel Historical Village Holds Training For New DocentsMore than a dozen new docents took part November 6 in a training and indoctrination session at the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village. After some instruction by museum board members and docents Dorothy Donaldson, Jan Halliday, Gayle Pence and Deb Gleason, the group took a tour of the village to see and experience what they had learned. Gleason, long-time docent and president of the Historical Preservation Committee, said, Anybody can docent even if you start out without any knowledge. We will teach you what you need to know. The new docents toured: The Rutland House (1913), a typical cracker-style house of the period, where they focused on the island Native Americans and Sanibels early pioneer families, the Baileys, Matthews and Woodrings; The Garden, which illustrates private gardens used for a familys food, and truck or commercial gardens for produce that would be shipped to other areas; The Sanibel School for White Children (1896), which operated until 1964 when the current Sanibel School opened, which was integrated to teach both black and white children. Gleason, who attended the one-room Sanibel School, told her docent students, To those who went to school in this building, the definition of an islander today is someone who lives here and gives back, so you are all islanders; Burnap Cottage (1898), a fishing retreat that houses exhibits on the Algiers and the Lighthouse; Miss Charlottas Tea Room, which was meant to serve as a gas station but became a temporary store when Baileys store was demolished by the hurricane of 1926. It then became a tea room serving primarily people getting on or off the ferry, and later was home to the local school teacher; The 1926 Post Office, Sanibels fourth, constructed entirely from wood salvaged Deb Gleason, long-time docent and president of the Historical Preservation Committee, promised new docents they would be taught everything they need to know to perform their duties Vice-president of the board of the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village Dorothy Donaldson took trainees to the Rutland House, where visitors enter and are logged in

The next step for new docents is to shadow experienced docents until they feel comfortable performing their duties on their own. We are extremely grateful to these people who are willing to volunteer their time to help the historical village, said Museum Manager Emilie Alfino. Everyone is very busy these days, but I hope our docents find their time here to be enjoyable and perhaps even a bit of a respite and change of pace from their daily lives, so different in 2012 from the time people were living and working in these buildings. More docents are always needed at the historical village. To explore the possibilities, call Alfino at 472-4648. The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. The village, which operates as a nonprofit organization, is located at 950 Dunlop Road (next to BIG ARTS). Admission is $5 for adults over 18; members are free. From page 1Kanzius Cancer Technologysupported by the laboratory results rather than the machine and the research being submitted as a single process. Regardless of when human trials begin, they will likely focus on these new types of treatment that dont require nanoparticles, Curley said. You have the machine and you have the nanoparticles, so you would have to go through a combined morbidity process for the FDA, Curley said. On the other hand, it would likely be a lot easier to get just the device approved because the nanoparticles are considered a drug and that process is more difficult. Research with the nanoparticles will continue at MD Anderson, according to Curley. Curleys laboratory at the MD Anderson Cancer Research Center in Houston, Texas is the primary research facility for the Kanzius technology. Research is also underway at the University of Pittsburg and the University of California, Davis. Curley is presently testing a large Radio Frequency Generator on pigs that is sufficiently sized for humans. Human trials have been the goal of the research. Curley said the FDA submittal for the machine would have to come from Therm Med, the company formed by John Kanzius before his death and currently managed by his widow, Marianne Kanzius. Therm Med is producing the machine. We are continuing the development of the machine, now in its fifth iteration, and will make the submittal to the FDA at such time as we are reasonably confident that all elements of the research and the equipment have reached the stage where approval is reasonably certain. Our goal is to bring the project to human trials as quickly as possible, Kanzius said. The research teams will need to demonstrate at least two years of successful clinical trials to seek FDA approval to begin the Phase I Human Trials. If, as Curley says, the machine approval process is easier, it could take several months off the time required to reach human clinical trials. Lee County Memorial Health System is one of five hospitals nationwide designated as a human trial site. As a public service, the Island Sun has been following the development of the technology since its inception with a continuing series of articles and has also sponsored forums designed to inform the public more about it.

Beck, whose job includes recording the meetings and preparing the minutes, received accolades Tuesday at her last commission meeting. Commission Chairman Mike Valiquette read a proclamation praising Becks dedication to the job and her pleasant attitude. Commissioner Check Ketteman spoke of Susans pleasant smile all the time and her willingness to answer silly questions. He added, I want to recommend her to the retirement club. It is the most fun club on the island. Beck received hugs from several commissioners along with a dish etched with seven native seashells by local artist Luc Century. She said shes taking a weeklong cruise next month and then will head to Delaware to spend the holidays with her five children, three grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. Meg Veraldi will take over as recording secretary. Planning Commission Chairman Mike Valiquette and Susan Beck Sidewalk Sale Ordinance Moves Forwardby Anne MitchellThe planning commission on Tuesday unanimously approved an ordinance that will almost double the number of sidewalk sales retailers can have each year and determined that such a move is consistent with The Sanibel Plan. The ordinance now has to have two public hearings before the city council before it goes on the books. There appears to be little or no opposition to the idea, which came from the citys desire to help the business community have more exposure to passing traffic. The ordinance will allow signs on a pedestrian scale that will be seen by the increasing users of the islands bike paths. Under the proposal, retailers and restaurants that sell non-food merchandise can apply to hold sidewalk sales for 67 days a year currently its 37 but none may last for more than three consecutive days except during the Christmas holidays. The annual permit fee will be $50. There will be limits on the size that can be used for the sales and for the size of signs that can be posted. Planning Director Jim Jordan said a pilot program has been in effect for four or five years. We took that and turned it into an ordinance, Jordan said. So far this year, he said there have been 34 to 35 applications for sidewalk sale permits. Ruane Wants To Call Elections Head To Taskby Anne MitchellSanibel Mayor Kevin Ruane has invited Lee County Supervisor of Elections Sharon Harrington to the December 4 city council meeting to discuss ways of speeding up the voting process. Some islanders along with many Lee County residents spent six hours or more waiting in line to vote in the General Election November 6. Many were still in line when the polls were supposed to close at 7 p.m. but were allowed to cast their ballot. The problem, caused by too few scanners to transmit the paper ballots, was not confined to Lee County. Ruane told the Sanibel Planning Commission on Tuesday that he had called Harringtons office twice. The first time they suggested I call back. The second time her number was temporarily disconnected, he said. Ruane said he would keep trying. We certainly will invite her to our December meeting and see if we can make this less painful than it was. We never thought it would take that long (to vote). We learned from that, he added.

Barry Roth and Sanibel Mayor Kevin Ruane City from page 6Yet Another Delay For Doughnut Shopby Anne MitchellFor the third time, the applicant seeking a permit for a new doughnut, coffee and sandwich restaurant on Periwinkle Way, has requested a continuance on the hearing in order to complete his response to issues identified by staff. JCKC, LLC plans to convert a former real estate office that was a restaurant years ago into a 40-seat fast food eatery with carryout service. The project, called Bennetts Roast Restaurant, also requires a conditional use permit because of the change of use. The parcel is at 1020 Periwinkle Way, just east of the Lazy Flamingo restaurant. The issues include fire and rescue access, traffic and wetlands impacts and nearby eagle nesting activity. The hearing is now scheduled for Tuesday, December 11 at 9:10 a.m. before the planning commission. Church Youth Groups CombineSixteen young people from St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church and the Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ attended the first meeting of a youth group being formed as a cooperative effort between the two local churches. At the November 6 gathering at St. Michaels, pizza was served, attendees got acquainted with each other by playing a game and during a spirited brainstorming session, ideas were explored concerning future activities for the group. Suggestions included service projects, seeing how scripture is relevant to members lives, lock-down overnights and a mission trip. Everyone agreed that having fun with each other should be the main objective. The next meeting of the group will be December 4 at 6:30 p.m. at the Congregational Church. Youth group leaders are the Rev. Ellen Sloan and the Rev. Debbie Kunkle. 2012-2013 Season OPERA CLASSICAL LECTURES DANCE POP & JAZZ LIVE THEATER VISUAL ARTS BALLET DANCE Sanibel Arts on FILM NOVEMBER 16 28 BIG ARTS SCHEIN PERFORMANCE HALL M 19 Film: Footnote ................................................................... 7 PM W 21 Film: Margin Call ......................................................... 1:30 PM S 24 All in the Musical Family ............................................. 8 PM M 26 Film: Surprise Film (To Be Announced) ........................ 7 PM W 28 Film: Once Upon a Time in Anatolia .......................... 1:30 PMSaturday, November 24 8 PM, Schein Performance Hall$37 General Seating $42 Loge $15 Child 17 & Under Grand Patron Sponsor BECKIE MENZIE & TOM MICHAEL Sponsor BIG ARTS Angels Community Church Bazaar And Bake SaleThe Womens Guild of Sanibel Community Church invites residents of Sanibel, Fort Myers and Estero to the Holly and Ivy Bazaar and Bake Sale on Friday, December 7.

RICHARD (DICK) DUBBERichard (Dick) Dubbe, 83, passed peacefully from this world on November 6 in Fort Myers, Florida, surrounded by his family. He was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on January 9, 1929 to Albert and Frieda Dubbe. He graduated from Roosevelt High School and attended the University of Minnesota, receiving a bachelors degree in electrical engineering in 1953. Richard met his life-long bride, Wanda Mae Dubbe, in Minneapolis, and they married in Wandas home town of Sacred Heart, Minnesota in 1950. They raised their family in Minnesota and California, before retiring to Sanibel Island, and then Shell Point Retirement Community, in Florida. For his career, Richards love of audio and video recording technology led to research and management positions at 3M Company, where he obtained numerous patents and awards, developed numerous products, and pioneered the development of todays digital audio and video technology. In retirement, he served many years on the board of directors of the Lee County Electrical Cooperative. Boating was another long-standing love of Richard and his family, and many adventures were had exploring lakes, rivers and seas throughout the U.S. His curiosity about everything and his ability to fix anything made for great stories, and his optimism and warm smile made for many friends and good times. Throughout his life, Richard contributed his diverse talents to his church, his communities and the people around him. He was an inspiration and blessing to those whose lives he touched. Richard is survived by his loving wife of 62 years, Wanda; four grateful children, Dean, Jane, John and Kent, and eight admiring grandchildren. A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Friday, November 23, at Sanibel Congregational Church located at 2050 Periwinkle Way on Sanibel Island. Please join his family in celebrating the life of Richard. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Hope Hospice at Shell Point, c/o Legacy Foundation, 15010 Shell Point Boulevard, Fort Myers, FL 33908. Arrangements have been entrusted to National Cremation & Burial Society North Fort Myers.

13 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 16, 2012Marilyn Bradbury Bigelow passed away suddenly on November 6, 2012. She is survived by her loving husband of 65 years, KK Bigelow and three children, Kevin K. Bigelow, Derek Bradbury Bigelow and Dana Kathleen Bigelow, and five grandsons, Thomas K. Bigelow-Debes, Jonathan Bradbury Bigelow, Derek Alexander Bigelow, Ronald Brandon Boykin and Brian Douglas Boykin. She leaves three great grandchildren: Ayleen BigelowDebes, Jason K. Bigelow-Debes and Joleen Bigelow-Debes. She is also survived by her sisters, Patricia Bradbury Meyer and Kathryn Bradbury Bernard and brother, Charles Robert Bradbury, all of California. Marilyn was born in Oakland, California to her loving parents, Charles Valentine Bradbury and Elma Margaret Rinehart Bradbury, on December 18, 1923. She joined the Womens Army Corps in 1942, becoming one of the first women, other than nurses, to serve in the army. She was stationed at the air traffic facility in Hampton, Georgia and then at Pearl Harbor. On September 14, 1947 she married KK Bigelow, USMC aviator, in Honolulu, Hawaii. Marrying her marine aviator intensified Marilyns desire to become a pilot. She earned her wings in a biplane over the Pacific and Hawaiian islands. She was a homemaker in Washington DC, Santa Anna, Tustin, and Monterey, California, Honolulu, Hawaii, Quantico and Norfolk, Virginia. She was the first spouse of an active military person to graduate from the prestigious Army Language School (German) at the Presidio. KKs last duty station at the American Embassy in Bonn, Germany, afforded Marilyn the opportunity to explore her artistic side. She studied art for many years under the tutelage of renowned German painter Gerhard Neumann. Her artistic talent as a painter earned her a coveted blue ribbon at The Paris Art Show in 1968. Her wit, wisdom and pronounced ability to get along with anyone, made her an invaluable asset in the American Diplomatic Community. Her generous and nurturing nature prompted her to tutor English and play hostess to German senior high school groups. Upon retiring from the marine corps, KK accepted a job that eventually brought them to Arlington, Virginia. Marilyn turned her attention to building a career as a successful realtor in northern Virginia. After retiring to Sanibel Island, Florida, Marilyn resumed her artistic painting full time and became passionately involved in rescuing greyhounds and wildlife. Her family rejoices that she is in heaven with Jesus Christ. They are thankful for her strong love, guidance and devotion while she was with them. They will miss her so. In lieu of a memorial service, Marilyns family will be remembering and celebrating her life with small, informal gatherings over the next few months. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) or any no-kill animal rescue organization. OBITUARY MARILYN SYLVIA AFTON BRADBURY BIGELOWOn Election Day, the lines were long and the complaints were plenty. But, my hat is off to all the people at Sanibel Community Church. They taught all of us, as we slowly advanced to the voting stations some in two hours, some a lot longer what a church, when it is a public host, can be. If you were there, you saw it. Getting out chairs for some of the old people. Putting up giant umbrellas, luckily, even before the great rain onslaught. And they, with smiles, brought out water and coffee. Later, there were muffins. But the whole day was filled with so much more thoughtful kindness. With deep gratitude from all of us who had been there. Thanks, Sanibel Community Church. Thanks.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 16, 201214 Historical Tour To Israel With Dr. Ran Niehoff Being PlannedBIG ARTS is offering a nine-day historical study tour of Israel in April. This trip will be led by Dr. Ran Niehoff, an ordained minister who served as senior minister at the Congregational United Church of Christ on Sanibel from 1991 to 2008. The tour departs from Southwest Florida International Airport on Friday, April 5 and returns on Monday, April 15. Travel highlights include Galilee, the Dead Sea, Bethlehem, Jerusalem, Judea, Caesarea, the Rothschild Tombs and the Hinnom Valley. The all-inclusive nine-day, eight-night tour is $6,360 per person for double occupancy. Single occupancy is $7,230. Package includes all air travel and luxury motor coach transportation, boutique hotel accommodations, all meals, travel and evacuation insurance, and an Israeli guide. Registration and full payment deadline is Monday, December 10. Our travels will take us through a variety of striking, sensual settings, said Niehoff, who has led six study tours to Israel. Well stroll in the lush gardens surrounding the Rothschild Tombs perhaps the most moving secular site in this modern state. From its mile and a half high mountains to sumptuous beaches, from its vineyards and dairy farms to the sub-tropical Sea of Galilee, from barren deserts to the lowest point on earth (the shores of the Dead Sea), Israel holds within its borders the greatest contrast of elevation and eco-climates of any nation on earth. An ordained minister in the United Church of Christ, Niehoff retired on Sanibel in 2008 after 41 years of full-time parish ministry. He served congregations as pastor in West Seneca and Wellsville, New York; Marblehead, Massachusetts; and Sanibel. Niehoff graduated from Washington University in St. Louis with a degree in Philosophy before he entered divinity school at Eden Theological Seminary in Webster Groves to earn his Masters and Doctorate degrees. Subsequent sabbatical leaves took Dr. Niehoff to Europe to study at the Jerusalem Center for Biblical Studies in Israel, the American School for Classical Studies in Greece, the American School in Rome and Westminster College at Cambridge University in the United Kingdom. Before the trip a short meeting will be scheduled for participants to become acquainted and ask questions. There is also a suggested reading list for this study tour. The tour will have 30 (and no more than 36) people; if the trip minimum of 30 is not met by Monday, December 10, a full refund will be issued.For a detailed itinerary and additional information about this study tour, call BIG ARTS at 395-0900.

This guided monthly cruise explores the meanders of the historic upriver Caloosahatchee. We follow the river back to a time when a waterfall served as the headwaters of the Caloosahatchee and settlers braved living amongst the wilderness. The 2.5 hour adventure begins by locking through the W.P. Franklin Lock in Olga. Heading east toward Alva, we enter the historic bends of the river and revisit the activities of the pioneers who traveled the same river to find paradise. Stories of the settlements and their adventures are blended with an understanding of the rivers oxbows, the wild creatures that call it home and the challenges the river faces. The tour is guided by Rae Ann Wessel, a river researcher, long-time river advocate, historian and SCCF Natural Resource Policy Director. Our vessel is the stable and spacious 47-passenger Manatee Rover pontoon boat that features daily manatee tours. All seats have a great view for photographs and bird watching. Cruises depart 1 at p.m. from the W.P. Franklin Lock & Dam off SR 80 in Olga. Cruise dates in 2012 are Friday, November 23, Sunday December 9 and the following Sundays in 2013: January 27, February 10, March 10, April 14, and Mothers Day, May 12. Cruises depart at 1 p.m. and return by 3:30 p.m. Tickets are $40 per person, with payment due at time of reservation. We also need the names of all passengers at the time of reservation. Call SCCF at 472-2329. Please note that reservations must be made by Tuesday, November 20 for the November 23 cruise. Space is limited. The next Oxbow & Riverlore Cruise will be held on November 23 Friends Who Care Helping Island NeighborsThanksgiving is time to give thanks for family, friends, health and wellbeing.

This year, Friends Who Care with the assistance of other local organizations will provide Thankgiving dinners for families in need on the island. Friends Who Care distributes many gift certificates for turkeys, including all of the trimmings.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 16, 201216 Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellThe SanibelCaptiva Rotary Club is engaged in a matching fund challenge for club and community members to raise $5,500 before the end of the year to purchase a cargo shipping container of wheelchairs designated for a country in need. One hundred dollars will purchase one wheelchair for someone deprived of mobility due to birth defects, war, disease (including polio), accidents, natural disaster, and advanced age. The need is estimated to be over 100 million. Please help us raise our $5,500. To date we are over half-way there but with your help we can reach our goal and receive an additional $5,500 from the SanibelCaptiva Rotary Club Trust Foundation. You can send a contribution to: Wheelchair Challenge Bunny Ospa, PO Box 1376, Sanibel, FL 33957 or by picking up a box of our Rotary holiday cards at the Sanibel Farmers Market. Rotarians get a little too serious sometimes, so every once in a while we like to party and just enjoy a social evening. Rotarian Janet Strickland, membership chair, arranged such an evening for us at Thistle Lodge. Now that it gets dark a little earlier, 5 p.m. does seem to be the right time to be sipping wine and nibbling on fantastic cheeses. This was the first time our two newest members: Rachel Tritaik, owner/physical therapist of Island Therapy Center; and transferring Oak Ridge, Tennessee Breakfast Rotary Club member Roger Olson, retired engineer, got a chance to meet club members and their spouses outside of our regular meetings. Club members were also asked to invite their friends, neighbors or anyone who might have an interest in joining our club to come along and find out who is involved in Rotary. Rotary District 6960 Membership Chair Steve Agius, Bonita Springs Noon Club said a few meaningful words about the objectives of Rotary. Rotary has such a long and rich history, founded February 23, 1905 by Paul P. Harris, an attorney who wished to create a professional club with the same friendly spirit he had felt in the small towns of his youth; club activities that support friendships and encourage networking to serve a broad range of opportunities to serve society. Rotary membership has so much to offer. Its members have an amazing about of business and professional experience with outstanding problem solving skills. Fellowship, socializing and working together create bonds and life-long personal and professional friendships. Networking has always been a part of Rotary and, in todays economic atmosphere, our young Rotarians need to find that opportunity in the service clubs they belong to. Rotary International is refocusing again on this aspect of Rotary and is trying to encourage networking within our Rotary family. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club would like to thank John Manning, Lee County commissioner, for coming to our Rotary Club just a few days after the election. He went over some of the areas of concern within the county. If you have any questions regarding Rotary, e-mail Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club President John Grey at John@ JohnGreyPainting.com or Presidentelect Scot Congress at Scot@scongress. com. 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.

17 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 16, 2012Thanksgiving Eve At Chapel By The Sea In the autumn of 1621, the people of the Plymouth Colony gathered in a small harvest and prepared their homes for winter. They also shared waterfowl, wild turkey and venison with their fellow colonists and with their native American neighbors. The first national Thanksgiving was declared in 1777 by the Continental Congress. Others were declared from time to time until 1815. Then, in 1863, two national days of Thanksgiving were declared, one celebrating the victory at Gettysburg on August 6, and the other the first of our last-Thursday-in-November annual Thanksgivings. Parishioners will gather at Captiva Chapel By The Sea on November 21 at 5 p.m. for an informal Thanksgiving Eve service. The Rev. Thomas E. Nyman will preside. Chapel by the Sea is located at 11580 Chapin Lane (next to the Captiva Civic Association and library)., phone 4721646. Thanks to all who helped make our 5th annual Wines in the Wild on November 10 a sparkling success.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 16, 201218 by Capt. Matt MitchellCold and windy conditions most of the week kept all but the most diehard anglers off the water. With another strong cold front blowing through, I ended up cancelling several trips midweek and only made it out a few days. Action was good, with high numbers of fish caught. Despite the less than perfect weather, it was not a problem to keep a rod bent with a great mixed bag of fish. With all of the recent red tide reports, I keep expecting to see dead fish all over the sound. But so far, so good with only a few long dead mullet washing in from the gulf side. The strong prevailing east winds should help keep the red tide offshore and out of the bay. Ive yet to see any significant amounts of dead fish, even though its reported all over the local TV networks daily. This last blast of cold really pushed good numbers of sheepshead into the sound. Docks, bridges and basically any structure whether it be deeper mangrove shorelines, rocky shorelines or downed trees around the passes all held good numbers of sheepshead. Go with small sharp hooks, light leader and the least amount of weight you can use to keep a fresh shrimp chunk close to the bottom. A sheepshead bite is a little different than other fish and being patient enough to wait through the little nibbles until the line comes tight is the key to hooking these small-mouthed fish. Sheepshead make a great target species for shorebound anglers and pier fisherman as they are found in big numbers around dock and bridge pilings all winter long. One old trick to get them chummed up and feeding is to scrape barnacles off the pilings with a flat shovel. Regulations for sheepshead are 12-inch minimum and 15 per person per day. This high limit on sheepshead makes this tasty crustacean-eating fish a favorite for anglers looking to take home a fresh fish dinner. Trout fishing remained strong this week, with limits caught throughout the sound. Finding clear water was the main factor to getting on that consistent bite. The longtime favorite classic trout rig of a live shrimp fished under a popping cork was hard to beat, with jacks, ladyfish and Spanish mackerel being found in the same places as the trout. Jig fisherman bouncing the bottom with soft plastic shrimp imitations also got in on the fast-paced trout action. Our redfish action this week was a little more hit or miss, with the strong winds and lower tides making it hard to find the right shoreline. The low tide action in mangrove creeks mostly resulted in just under the slotsize fish. These 16to 20-inch fish are the normal winter sizes redfish we will encounter until the spring. Bouncing the bottom with a live shrimp rigged on a 1/4 oz. jig head to target slot-size redfish caught other species including snook, flounder and snapper. How quickly things change. It was just a few weeks ago I was fishing a fall pattern with shiners and pinfish being the go-to bait. With a few cold blasts, our fishing has switched over to that winter pattern and is now all about live shrimp fished close to the bottom. If conditions warm back up, things could quickly switch back over, but from now until the spring, I wont be leaving the dock without the winter staple of live shrimp.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.

Standing three to four feet tall with a wingspan of nearly six feet, these majestic birds (Ardea herodias) are North Americas largest heron. When Waruszewski and Keller arrived at the scene, the avian was lying down. They immediately called CROW for advice. Thats when Gareth Johnson, patient admissions and first responder, sprung into action. According to Waruszewski, We were told two days prior the bird was not walking around properly. I had a helper, Linda, who had done rescues in the past. When we approached it, the heron jumped a bit and became more active. We didnt want to pick it up, so I took the shirt off my back and threw it over its eyes. The bird calmed down immediately. Once the sick bird was calm, the problem of transporting the large avian arose. Linda held it while I drove her golf cart to Eagles Preserve Island on the property to obtain a clean garbage can. Waruszewski returned and wrapped the bird in a towel which he used as a gurney to safely lift the bird into the makeshift carrier. Its legs appeared to be injured, so he placed the bird in headfirst. We felt this would allow the bird to stretch its legs if it wanted. The two drove the heron to the security station to meet Johnson and the CROW van. I was very impressed at how fast [he] got there, stated Waruszewski. Johnson quickly returned to the wildlife clinic, as the bird slipped in and out of consciousness. It was admitted to ICU where the wildlife specialists found the patient to be nonresponsive, dehydrated and cold to the touch, which indicated that it had been ill for some time. The staff kept the heron warm while a manual palpitation was performed that indicated a past fracture to the birds femur which had healed improperly. Pain medications were administered alleviate the patients discomfort. Additionally, the heron was found to be suffering from Brevetoxicosis caused by red tide inhalation. While red tide causes little more than respiratory and eye discomfort for most humans, it has a more serious effect on marine wildlife. The great blue heron will continue to receive intensive care including daily tube feedings and the administration of Lactulose to stimulate the liver into filtering out the toxins. To support the health of our wildlife, go to CROWs website and make a donation to a specific patient or species. CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Inc.) is a non-profit wildlife hospital providing veterinary care for native and migratory wildlife from our local area. The hospital accepts patients seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mail donations to PO Box 150, Sanibel, FL 33957. Call 472-3644 or visit: www.crowclinic.org.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 16, 201220 San-Cap Shell Club MeetingWhat is a nudibranch? You may not have heard of them, but Mother Nature has imbued them with some of her wildest indulgences of color and form. A nudibranch is a shell-less mollusk that bears some of the most diverse and fascinating shapes, sumptuous hues and intricate patterns of any animal on Earth. Join other shell enthusiasts as Joyce Matthys presents The Wonderful World of Nudibranchs at the next meeting of the Sanibel-Captiva Shell Club, scheduled for Sunday, November 18 from 2 to 3 p.m. in the Education Room at The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum. Matthys is known for having created the two video documentaries that are shown daily at the museum. The meeting is open to the public and free of charge. Door prizes will be given and refreshments served. For questions or more information, call 503-871-1082 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Red Tide AdvisoryThe Lee County Health Department advises beachgoers and boaters to be wary of spotty patches of red tide that can cause respiratory irritation in susceptible people. Beachgoers are advised to wear shoes when walking on the sand to avoid the possibility of a puncture wound from fish bones, especially catfish spines. Shell fishing is closed throughout Lee County waterways; however, shell fish sold at restaurants and stores is safe to eat. Staff from the health department, Lee County Parks and Recreation and Mote Marine Laboratories continues to monitor beaches for signs of red tide. Results show spotty patches of the toxin creating fish kills, discolored water and minor respiratory irritation mostly in open water, but occasionally coming ashore on local beaches. Based on observations taken this morning, Bunche Beach near the Sanibel Causeway and the Gulfside beach access at Algiers Lane, Tarpon Bay beach and Tarpon Bay at Ding Darling National Wildlife Reserve experienced a few days with various amounts of dead fish and odor. Some respiratory irritation was noted from the red tide bloom offshore. Local officials say people can still enjoy the beaches, however, those with asthma or chronic respiratory impairments need to be aware of beach conditions where red tide impacts are reported. Those who experience symptoms should move to another beach without reports of red tide. The Mote Marine Laboratorys Beach Conditions Report is updated at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. daily. Reports can be viewed online at www.mote.org/beaches. Residents and visitors can also register to receive email reports about specific beaches. For telephone updates, call 941-BEACHES (232-2437).

Several species of Koelreuteria are found in Florida. Two species, K. elegans a native of Taiwan and Fiji and K. paniculata a native of China and Korea are considered invasive in Floridas southern region. The two can be distinguished by the fact that K. is evergreen. Panicles of five-petaled flowers appear above the foliage. The shower of falling petals gives the tree another common name, golden rain tree. The papery three-sided capsules resemble two-inch-long Chinese lanterns. The pinkish pods can remain on the tree for months, eventually turning tan. In fact, blooms and pods often appear simultaneously. The little lanterns, which contain three spherical black seeds, can be used in dried long-lasting flower arrangements. The bipinnate compound leaves can be over a foot long and comprised of pointed coarsely toothed leaflets. This fast-growing tree can reach up to 50 feet high. The seeds germinate very quickly, and it is theorized that birds eat and spread the seeds. Drought and disease tolerance, as well as pest resistance, helps it persist. There is no known chemical control to eliminate it, so removing it can be difficult.

Father And Son Team Take First PlaceSanibel Air Conditioning isnt new to doing things for a good cause, especially if it involves fishing. Co-owner Bryan Hayes and his son, Daniel, took first place the first redfish fishing tournament held by the Panther Baseball Alumni Club, which helped raise funds for Cypress Lake High Schools baseball team. Their winning catch weighed over 6.5 pounds and was 26.5 inches long, beating out the second place winner by just two ounces. It was the first time that father and son participated in a tournament together and, after discussing their winnings with their family, they decided to donate their $1,500 first place prize to the baseball program. The tournament raised $8,000 for the Panther baseball program. Daniel and I had a great time fishing the tournament, and winning it together will be something we will both remember for the rest of our lives, said Bryan Hayes. Its a wonderful feeling to be able to do something fun for a great cause, and when our kids to be part of that with us, you just cant beat the value of what they get to take away from it all.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 16, 201226 Volunteers Needed For Christmas Bird Count On December 15San-Cap Audubon will conduct its annual Christmas Bird Count on Saturday, December 15. The results of the local count will be forwarded to the National Audubon Society for inclusion in the 113th National Christmas Bird Count. More than 50,000 observers participate each year in this census of early-winter bird populations. The results are compiled into the longest running database in ornithology, representing over a century of unbroken data on trends of early-winter bird populations across the Americas. Simply put, the Christmas Bird Count is citizen science in action. Prior to the turn of the 20th century, people engaged in a holiday tradition known as the Christmas Side Hunt. They would choose sides and go into the field with their guns; whoever brought in the biggest pile of feathered and furred quarry won. Conservation was in its infancy around the turn of the century, and many observers and scientist were becoming concerned about declining bird populations. Beginning on Christmas Day 1900, ornithologist Frank Chapman, an early officer in the then budding Audubon Society, proposed a new holiday tradition, a Christmas bird census that would count birds in the holidays rather than hunt them. So began the Christmas Bird Count. Thanks to the inspiration of Frank M. Chapman and the enthusiasm of 27 dedicated birders, 25 Christmas Bird Counts were held that day. The locations ranged from Toronto, Ontario, to Pacific Grove, California with most counts in or near the population centers in northeastern North America. Those original 27 bird counters tallied a total of 90 species on all the counts combined. Volunteers are needed for this years count. Birding skills are desirable but not necessary. To participate or to obtain addition information, call 395-3804. Seagrape ThiefBeth Warner snapped a shot of this teeny tiny raccoon in the parking lot across from BIG ARTS last week.

29 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 16, 2012 The Mating Game At Off Broadway Palmby Di SaggauI Love You, Youre Perfect, Now Change is playing at the Off Broadway Palm. I saw the musical five years ago on their main stage, thoroughly enjoyed it then, and like it even better in a more intimate setting. Its a musical that everyone can relate to and being up close and personal with the actors really brings it home. Audiences are taken through the life cycle of love with a series of vignettes that cover everything from first dates through marriage, the child-bearing years, divorce and old age. Most of it is not meant to be taken too seriously, and the actors set just the right tone. A four-person cast consisting of Adam lough, Erik Hogan, Caitlin Newman and Kate Marshall, performs over 20 characters with an excellent sense of comedic timing. They play skillfully off each other and they all have great singing voices. Hogan and Marshall had the audience in stitches with their funerals-are-for-dating scene and another where its the man who cries during a sad movie. Newman sings a beautiful rendition of I Will Be Loved Tonight. She adds a sparkling dimension to the stage. Clough handles one of the tenderest moments when his middle-aged character questions the status of his 30-year marriage. Shouldnt I be less in love with you? he asks himself as he sits across the breakfast table from his wife. No, he concludes with a loving smile. I also loved the segment where a divorced young woman makes her first dating video. The musical comedy includes many situations and stereotypes about malefemale relationships. All four actors add hilarity and, at times, sensitivity to truthful moments in the mating game. Everyone is bound to find some bit of truth in these capsules of love. Live piano accompaniment by William Asher is exceptional. Paul Bernier directs and choreography is by Amy Marie McCleary. I Love You, Youre Perfect, Now Change will be at the Off Broadway Palm Theatre through December 25. Tickets can be reserved by calling 278-4422, visiting www.BroadwayPalm.com or by stopping by the box office at 1380 Colonial Boulevard in Fort Myers.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 16, 201234 Free Educational, Motivational Speaker EventThe brief visit of three globally recognized humanitarian heroes to Sanibel Island just a few days following the CNN Heroes of the Year awards ceremony in Los Angeles is prompting an eclectic array of local foundations, social service organizations and churches to collaborate hosting a free educational and motivational speaking event. The event will be held on Thursday, November 29 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Sanibel Community Church with a reception to follow. Admission is free and open to the public. The heroes include CNN 2010 Hero of the Year Anuradha Kiorala of Maiti, Nepal; Forbes Hero of Philanthropy Anie Djojohadikusumo, patron founder of Wadah Foundation, Indonesia; and a Young Adult Hero Sara Djojohadikusumo, a dynamic 26-year-old human trafficking foundation leader and TV personality. Koirala, the 2010 CNN Hero of the Year, founder of Maiti Nepal, and inspiration of the recent CNN documentary with Demi Moore entitled Nepals Stolen Children has been credited with rescuing and rehabilitating over 12,000 women and girls. While in a tiny, humble human package this dynamo has been appointed a state minister, has received over 30 international awards and runs her foundation with fiscal integrity and competence that yields efficiency, accountability and transparency. Wadah Foundation is a similar force in humanitarian achievements throughout Indonesia, the Philippines and Asia. Forbes magazine recent article titled Heroes of Philanthropy. Helping Others to Help Themselves praised Djojohadikusumo for the groups grassroots ability to transform communities by recognizing, empowering and harnessing the collective power of individuals. Thanks to Wadah, thousands of women and children who were among the least, the last and the lost, now count. The purpose of the event, according to patron sponsor, Djojohadikusumo, is We are simply holding this educational event to heighten awareness of the magnitude of human rights violations that are occurring around the world right now, particularly in our home countries of Indonesia and Nepal. She continued to explain, But I dont want people to stay away thinking this will be a depressing evening. Quite the opposite, it is a story of hope; about all the simple, little things we are doing that have had an incredible impact on changing lives and transforming communities. The patron sponsor continued by clarifying, And we have no intention of using this as a fundraiser, but we do hope our stories will inspire others to take action; to do something, anything, wherever they are, to help humanity. She paused and continued reflectively, After all, every one counts and everyone can do something to count to one. Having people come together to hear our stories alone makes a difference. Pastor Daryl Donovan of Sanibel Community Church, explained why their congregation chose to volunteer their facility and invite all of the other island churches to unite and actively participate in this event by saying, The faith community of Sanibel is passionate about caring for the oppressed who suffer from injustice. Sanibel Community Church considers it an honor to promote not only awareness, but involvement in ministering hope and help to those whom God loves. In the spirit of inclusiveness, Sanibel Community Church is taking steps to insure that people of every religious background feel welcome, respected and united. While Pastor Donovan, as the host, will open this event, attendees will be greeted and seated by members of the nonprofit group Zonta and the Reverend Dr. Ellen Sloan of St. Michaels & All Angels Episcopal Church has agreed impart inspirational closing remarks. Nola Theiss, founder and executive director of Human Trafficking Awareness Partnerships said, Our local coalition of human service agencies which has worked so hard in partnership locally to fight human trafficking and other social ills have provided help and hope to the victims of human rights violations in our own communities in Southwest Florida. We look forward to gaining insights from these three women about their work and our own. The heroes have already made a difference to organizers on Sanibel who have chosen to host this event in a spirit of collaboration and inclusiveness. Sanibel resident Linda Linsmayer, who is coordinating the event in honor of her humanitarian friends, said, It has been amazing to see how various groups on Sanibel have so readily and generously come together to pull this event off. Granted these are truly globally renowned humanitarian heroes, but it speaks volumes about the leaders of groups like Zonta, Human Trafficking Awareness Partnerships and Sanibel Community Church for inviting all of the churches and islanders to use their brand new facility for such an allinclusive event. The 2010 CNN Hero of the Year, Anuradha summarized the event organizers collective belief best when she said, Nothing is impossible if the whole world collaborates. Sanibel Community Church is located at 1740 Periwinkle Way on Sanibel. Anuradha Kiorala Anie Djojohadikusumo Sara DjojohadikusumoSymphony Masterworks 1The Southwest Florida Symphony will open the 2012-13 season with their performance of Masterworks 1 on Saturday, November 17 at 8 p.m. at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall. Included will be Strauss Roses from the South, Schuberts Incidental Music from Rosamunde, with the Symphonic Chorale of Southwest Florida, Chopins Grande Polonaise featuring Priscila Navarro, winner of 2012 Jillian Prescott Music Awards Competition, and Strauss Der Rosenkavalier Suite. The Symphonys newly appointed Artistic Advisor, Leif Bjaland, will lead the orchestra in works by Johann Strauss II, Schubert, Chopin and Richard Strauss. From a grand Viennese ballroom to the stage of the concert hall, the opening concert program is a celebration of the dance. Imagine gliding to a popular waltz by The Waltz King, enjoy an exciting Polonaise for piano and orchestra by the great master of romantic piano music, savor the beautiful melodies of ballet music and choruses by Schubert and marvel at the virtuosity of the entire orchestra as they approach hyper-waltz-mode in Der Rosenkavalier Suite. Maestro Bjaland will present an informative pre-concert lecture in the Hall from 7 to 7:30 p.m. This program is an ebullient celebration of the dance with works that have as a common theme, the transformation of dance pieces to concert music. The 19th century composer Johann Strauss II, known as The Waltz King, composed over 500 waltzes, polkas and other types of dance music. The waltz and the Strauss family are virtually inseparable. Strauss waltzes generally follow a pattern of an introduction, a medley of five waltzes and a coda. Roses from the South uses themes from the composers 1880 operetta The Queens Handkerchief. The composer Richard Strauss (no relation to Johann) is known for his operas and tone poems. Der Rosenkavalier Suite is drawn from the comic opera first performed in 1911. The conductor Artur Rodzinski is traditionally credited as arranger of the Suite, first performed under his direction, in 1944. The Suite begins with the operas orchestral prelude, followed by tender music depicting the appearance of the Rosenkavalier. The violins introduce the first waltz which is followed by the whole orchestra in waltz mode! The piece requires true virtuosity from the orchestra. Chopin composed the Grande Polonaise in 1830-31. He added the Andante Spianato as an introduction in 1834. The Polonaise is a moderately slow dance of Polish origin in 3/4 time. Schubert composed incidental music to Rosamunde in 1823 for a play. While the play was a failure and has been lost, the music remains as among Schuberts most famous works. It contains ballet music, several choruses and several entractes. Like most works by Schubert, the music contains beautiful melodies. Subscriptions for the five-concert Masterworks Series start at $82. The three concert Pops series subscription prices are $49 and up. Flex Packages of three, six and eight concert tickets are available for patrons who prefer flexibility in their attendance. You will receive vouchers that can be redeemed for any series concert throughout the season (does not include Shell Point or Sanibel.) Single ticket prices start at $18. Student Rush tickets are sold for $5. To order tickets, call the Southwest Florida Symphony Box Office at 4180996 or visit www.swflso.org for more information. Tickets are also available online.

35 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 16, 2012 Talk-Back Added For Closing Night Of Beckys New Car At Strauss TheaterBIG ARTS Herb Strauss Theater, the only professional theater on Sanibel, drives in the 2012-13 live theater season with Theatre Conspiracys production of Beckys New Car. This show runs through November 20. The season includes Miriam Margolyes in Dickens Women (December 4 through 9), Forever Plaid: Plaid Tidings (December 17 through 31), Monty Pythons Spamalot (January 11 through February 16), The Marvelous Wonderettes (February 22 through March 23), Charles Lindbergh: The Lone Eagle (February 24 through March 10) and Fully Committed (March 29 through April 27). Theatre Conspiracys 2011 production of Beckys New Car drives into BIG ARTS Herb Strauss Theater for an eight-night encore run. Laced with adult humor, playwright Steven Dietz spins a touching tale about the detours we make on the road to happiness. Beckys New Car is the story of an everyday person a married, middleaged mom. Becky isnt exactly unhappy, but from her desk at a car dealership, she cant help wanting to know what else is out there. Intrigued by the excitement and glamour of a wealthy mans attention, Becky goes along for the ride on a journey of comic twists and turns as she test-drives a new life. Beckys New Car has a unique back-story of how the play was created. Seattle realtor Charles Staadecker was looking for a major gift to give his theater-loving wife Benita for her 60th birthday, so he brought the idea to A Contemporary Theatre (ACT) where Benita Staadecker was a Trustee. ACT worked with award-winning playwright Steven Dietz to create the play, which premiered in 2008. Dietz said he was inspired by the idea of a regular person leading a double life. The Staadeckers were thrilled with the result of their commission, (they placed no restrictions on Dietz in his writing), and went on to travel with the show, speaking to audiences to encourage people to support the arts. In 2009, Beckys New Car was one of six finalists for the Steinberg New Play Award given by the American Theatre Critics Association. The Staadeckers will be doing a talk-back at the Herb Strauss Theater after Beckys New Cars closing night performance on Tuesday, November 20. Lauren Drexler reprises her role as Becky Foster in Theatre Conspiracys production of Beckys New Car, with the role of Beckys husband now being played by Scott Carpenter. Nancy Antonio, Brittany Albury, Charles Greer, Scott Thompson and Jordan Wilson are also in the cast.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 16, 201236 Monday Night MovieFootnote by Stan GembickiThe next Monday Night Movie at BIG ARTS, Footnote (2011), is a story of a great rivalry between a father and son, both eccentric professors in the Talmud department of Hebrew University in Jerusalem. The son has an addictive dependency on the accolades that the establishment provides, while his father is a stubborn purist with a fear and profound revulsion for what the establishment stands for. Yet beneath his contempt lies a desperate thirst for some kind of recognition. The Israel Prize, Israels most prestigious national award, is the jewel that brings these two to a bitter confrontation. Joseph Cedar, who previously directed the combat film Beaufort, embeds his story in a different kind of battle; the ruthless competition that often ripples through academic circles where, as the old joke has it, the conniving is great because the stakes are so damn small. Uriel Shkolnik (Lior Ashkenazi) is a much honored scholar, whose approach to research tends to be cultural and intuitive. Eliezer Shkolnik (Shlomo BarAba), Uriels father, is a meticulous, factoriented researcher whos contemptuous of the way in which his more successful son conducts his scholarly business. But heres the rub: Uriel has been honored for his work while Eliezer has never received the acclaim he believes he deserves. When Eliezer is told that hes going to be awarded the prestigious Israel Prize, he feels as if a life of rejection is about to be vindicated. A dedicated philologist, Eliezer will finally emerge from shadows that he believes have been cast over his career by jealous detractors. Cedars sharp and lively movie puts father and son into a moral quandary that tests each mans deepest principles and threatens to undermine the entire psychological basis for each mans character. He is particularly attuned to the absurdities that abound in the quest for recognition and status, even as theyre reflected in the omnipresent face of Israeli security, uniformed guards and metal detectors. The movies title derives from the fact that Eliezers great achievement involves having been named in the footnote of his mentor, an important scholar. For Eliezer, this apparent trifle has taken on gargantuan, life-justifying proportions. Amusing and provocative, Cedars movie should not be mistaken for a footnote in the history of Israeli cinema; its a major addition, a work of incisive, biting humor and acute observation. The film won the Best Screenplay Award at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival. It was also nominated for a 2012 Academy Award in the category of Best Foreign Film, but lost to A Separation from Iran. BIG ARTS Film Societys Monday Night Film Series presents a mixture of critically-acclaimed independent and foreign films and documentaries.

Margin Callby Hyde TuckerMargin Call is an exciting film about the financial crash of 2008. It will be shown at 1:30 p.m., Wednesday, November 21, in Schein Performance Hall at BIG ARTS, 900 Dunlop Road, Sanibel. It is a thriller that skillfully depicts dramatic acts of human behavior under great pressure largely caused by big money. It is loosely modeled on Lehman Brothers. It is the best film that I have seen about Wall Street. AO Scott in the New York Times wrote: The film is relentless in its honesty and shrewd in its insights and techniques. He also wrote, It is a tale of greed, vanity, myopia and expediency that is all the more damning for its refusal to moralize. Joe Morgenstern in the Wall Street Journal wrote: JC Chandors fine debut feature is a shrewdly circumscribed chamber piece that studies the tactics and ethics, or absence of ethics, in at least two cases of major and minor players alike during 24 frantic hours before the planetkiller hits. As such, its chilling and enjoyable in unequal measure. Entertainment predominates, but entertainment with smarts, and well-honed edge. The fine ensemble cast includes Kevin Spacey, Paul Bettany, Jeremy Irons, Zachary Quinto, Simon Baker, Demi Moore and Stanley Tucci. They work exceptionally well together. The film is rated R for obscene language. It runs for 107 minutes. The tickets are $5. There will be a short introduction before the film and an open discussion following the showing. All will be encouraged to participate in the discussion. Margin Call is the opening film of the Not For Monday Night series. The following films will be shown as follows: Once Upon A Time in Anatolia (November 28); Tabloid (December 5); and In Darkness (December 12). These films are outstanding and have made a positive difference but may be more controversial of have other aspects that do not fit the Monday night model.

Its an illuminating and dark look at history and the entanglements of business and government in 1921, involving Henry Ford, Thomas Edison and Warren Harding. Thanks to $300,000 worth of renovations, the ArtStage includes more seats, a bigger stage and the eye-sore column that was right in the middle of the room is gone. Its quite a transformation. The play by Mark St. Germain is a comedy with a lot of poignant drama and what if scenarios. It begins as the three famous men try to escape reporters and The Secret Service. They end up in a wooded area in Maryland, stranded after their Model-T car hits a deer. The deer suffers in pain throughout most of the play, serving as a metaphor of violation to nature and also allowing various comments from the characters that show both compassion and insensitivity. Ford is played by Graham Smith. He starts out as a selfcentered, fast-talking, wheeler-dealer and ends up showing us he is not only ambitious and an idealist, hes egotistical and a bigot. This is a real eye-opener for some people. The relationship between the three is fascinating. Ed Pilkington is Thomas Alva Edison and he displays a comedic cantankerousness that balances out the seriousness of the play. He is cynical over the thefts of many of his inventions by movie companies. He gets a lot of laughs and deserves them. Peter Thomasson is the flawed Warren G. Harding, a man who never wanted to be President, and has not gone down in history as being a very good one. He does, however, express the most concern about the poor deer. The audience is introduced to the flaws and faults of these three men through creative dialogue, delivered with convincing passion by three outstanding actors. Theres also a fourth, Brian Hatch, who plays Colonel Edmund Starling, Hardings Secret Service man. He is not on stage very long, but I was impressed with his interpretation of the character. Camping With Henry And Tom is performed in the round with a well constructed set and there isnt a bad seat in the house. Theres even some music involving one of Edisons inventions. Ill bet you havent heard Al Jolson sing Alexanders Rag Time Band for quite some time. If this play is an example of whats to come in this new theater, and Im sure it is, were all in for a terrific season. Camping With Henry And Tom, directed by Robert Cacioppo, plays through November 25 in Florida Reps ArtStage Studio Theatre, located on Bay Street between Jackson and Hendry in the Fort Myers River District.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 16, 201238 Author Writes Sanibel History For YoungstersAuthor Marya Repko, who wrote the popular A Brief History of Sanibel Island, has now written The Story of Sanibel Island: A History for Younger Readers. The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village, which will carry the book in its Gift Shop for $7.50, donated 15 books to match Repkos donation, so that every student in the fourth grade class got one, with five additional books going to the schools library. Repko spoke about her book to the fourth graders in the after school program in teacher Julie Wappes class at The Sanibel School. In answer to a students question, Repko said the book had just arrived from the printer on November 8 and was hot off the press. After briefly describing her book, the author asked the students if they knew what Sanibel was like in the old days, who were the pioneers, and how did Sanibel grow. They answered all the questions correctly, and then had a few of their own: Why did you decide to become an author? How long did it take to write this book? How old are you? A couple of the students expressed an interest in becoming writers, and Repko told them the trick is to just keep writing, about anything and everything, all through their lives. Then I had so much, I decided to publish it and share it with everyone, Repko said. The book is available in the Sanibel Historical Museum and Villages Gift Shop, located in the Old Bailey Store within the Village. The Sanibel Historical Museum and Villages mission is to preserve, protect and share the historical heritage of Sanibel for the educational benefit of Sanibel residents and visitors. The Village is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. The Village, which operates as a nonprofit organization, is located at 950 Dunlop Road (next to BIG ARTS). Admission is $5 for adults over 18; members are free. For more information, call 472-4648.

39 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 16, 2012Sanibel Shells From A To Z Are In New Kids Bookby Di SaggauA brand new book by bestselling seashell author Harlan Wittkopf is now available. Alphie Finds The Seashell Alphabet features Sanibel shells in their natural habitat. With the help of Alphie, a young alphabet cone who lives on Sanibel Island with many other shells, young readers are introduced to 26 different shells with names that go from A to Z. The book is geared to children age five to 12, but all ages will find it of interest. Wittkopf, a Sanibel resident and shell enthusiast for over 38 years, told me he has written numerous books about shells, but had never written a childrens book. He was approached by well known cartoonist Ken Vinton one day on the beach in Sanibel, and asked if he would like to work together. They did and the result is this childrens book with spectacular artwork to accompany each individual shell. Hidden in each painting is the hand sign for the letter Alphie is finding. The majority of the original drawings will be on island for a while at various locations, starting first with the BaileyMatthews Shell Museum. On Friday, November 16, Wittkopf will host a talk about the book and present the book to a school group visiting the museum. His fascinating brochure about alphabet cones is distributed to area schools and is available free at the museum. His collection of alphabet cones featuring all of the letters and numbers is believed to be the first in the world. Alphie Finds The Seashell Alphabet is the perfect gift to get your children and grandchildren interested in Sanibels shells. With Alphies help theyll discover everything from the alternate tellin and banded tulip to the zebra ark. It will be a great adventure for them and for the entire family. The book is available at the BaileyMatthews Shell Museum and will soon be available at numerous other locations.

FREETake Me Home NEWSPAPERSanibel&CaptivaIslands BUSINESS REAL ESTATE CLASSIFIEDS VOL. 20, NO. 21 SANIBEL & CAPTIVA ISLANDS, FLORIDA NOVEMBER 16, 2012 B BSECTION Firemen Support Prostate Cancer Campaignby Jeff LysiakFor the second year in a row, several members of the Sanibel Fire & Rescue District are participating in an international campaign which aims to raise both money and awareness for mens health issues. And this growing concern has island firefighters growing mustaches during the entire month of November. In an effort called Movember, which began in Australia back in 2003, big steps have been taken towards changing attitudes and habits related to mens health around the world. But unlike the womens health movement, much work remains to be done. Using the moustache as a symbol, Movember aims to fulfill its vision of having an everlasting impact on the face of mens health by continuing to spark conversation and spread awareness of mens health issues each and every year. Were all having a blast doing this, said firefighter/EMT Josh Koza, who is leading the Movember effort with the fire department. Last year, everybody was kind of lackadaisical about it, but this year were raising a lot more money and awareness. During November, funds raised by the Sanibel firefighters as well as other fire departments and participating agencies across the United States will go towards supporting prostate cancer and testicular cancer initiatives. That money will be directed to programs run directly by Movember and their mens health partners, the Prostate Cancer Foundation and The Livestrong Foundation. According to the Movember website, one of the biggest obstacles men tackle in regard to general well-being is a reluctance to discuss health issues either with their partner, family or doctor. Movember was born from recognition that a fun and engaging initiative could help encourage men to become more actively involved in their own health. A lot of times, a guy will just put duct tape on it and hope it gets better, joked Tim Barrett, fire department training officer and Movember participant. In 2012, more than 242,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer. Of that total, 28,000 will die of the disease. Koza stated that Movember aims to increase awareness and support for mens continued on page 11B Sanibel firemen taking part in the Movember fundraiser and prostate cancer awareness campaign are, from left, Ron Ritchie, John Griffith, Tim Barrett, John DiMaria, John Murray and Josh Koza Empty Bowls Project Coming SoonThose attending the 5th annual Empty Bowls project at the Alliance for the Arts on Saturday, December 1 will be able to select a handmade ceramic bowl created and donated by Lee County students.

This donation entitles the individual to select a bowl and receive a variety of soup selections from local restaurants.

4B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 16, 2012Hollywood Hairstylists Widow Keeps His Salon Goingby Jeff LysiakJoe Micales hairstyling clients included the likes of entertainment icons Marilyn Monroe, Clint Eastwood, Barbra Streisand and Mickey Rooney. But they also included his neighbors from Fort Myers, Sanibel and throughout Southwest Florida. And no matter what their names, he treated everyone like they were a star. The man who was always smiling, always joking, always sharing a story many of which are included in his self-published book, Confessions Of A Hollywood Hairstylist Micale, better known as Little Joe, died following a motorcycle accident nearly a year ago, on November 26, 2011. Facing an uncertain future without her spouse, Ginny Micale pondered for months how to go on, and what to do with their business, Beverly Hills Hair Design. I kept thinking, What would he want me to do? said Micale. I was looking for a sign that would tell me to keep on going. Then one day, it happened. While driving in South Fort Myers one afternoon, she came upon the intersection McGregor Boulevard and Pine Ridge Road where Joes life came to an end. The traffic light turned red, and she stopped. At that same moment, she said she received a message on the radio. Glenn Millers In The Mood started to play it was our favorite song, said Ginny, smiling. I knew that it was the sign I was looking for, so I went ahead and made the move. Moving from their previous location in the Kingston Square Shopping Center, Fort Myers, Micale reopened Beverly Hills Hair Design in the Kelly Carlos Office Center at 11595 Kelly Road, Building 300, Suite 317 in South Fort Myers. Although she estimates that the business has lost approximately 90 percent of its clients since Joes passing, Micale is hoping that people will return once they know that she has reopened just around the corner from the previous location. We reopened on June first of this year, she said. I still have 10 or 12 clients. Everywhere you look around the hair salon, a little bit of Joes influence remains. Autographed photos of some of his favorite clients from his decades working in the entertainment business including Jack Lemmon, Red Skelton and good friend Casey Kasem line the walls. Even the original marquee from the salons previous location hangs from a tree located just outside a window. Whenever I look out there, I feel like hes looking over me and everythings gonna be okay, added Micale. Asked what her favorite Little Joe story was, she recalled the tale of Richie the paper boy. Richie was having a tough day selling newspapers and had planned on using the money he earned to help his mother pay that weeks rent.

One Assailant Says, You Always Want To Take The Quarterback Outby Ed FrankIf you watched Sunday nights classic battle between the Chicago Bears and the Houston Texans, you saw Bears quarterback Jay Cutler suffer a concussion after a vicious head-to-head hit by Houston linebacker Tim Dobbins. This followed an earlier concussion by Bears defensive end Shea McClellin who also left the game. If you watched Sundays game between the San Francisco 49ers and the St. Louis Rams, you saw 49ers quarterback Alex Smith go down with a concussion. And the same goes for Philadelphia quarterback Michael Vick, who was knocked out of the game against Dallas suffering a concussion. Three NFL quarterbacks down by concussion on a single day. Dobbins was at least five yards away from Cutler when the quarterback let go of the ball, and he didnt lower his head for the cheap shot until after the pass was thrown. What should have been an immediate ejection resulted in only a roughingthepasser penalty against Dobbins. When asked after the 13-6 Houston victory whether he thought his hit caused the concussion, here was Dobbins comment: I have no idea. No clue. But it was good that he (Cutler) was out, though. You always want to take the quarterback out of the game. Dealing with brain injuries and a concussion is a brain injury has been atop the NFL agenda for several years. And mandates have been adopted on how to evaluate such injuries. Before being cleared to return, players must undergo independent examinations that show normal neurological results. Obviously, however, tougher penalties, bigger fines and concussion protocols have not eliminated the problem. Sundays raft of concussions should send a message to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell that his anti-concussion program has failed miserably. Maybe suspending Dobbins and his likes for several games might send a message. But it probably wont happen. Interestingly, before Sundays Bears-Houston game, Bears President Ted Phillips and Army Lieutenant General Michael Ferriter held a forum in Chicago to discuss health and safety issues that NFL players and military veterans share. Its going to take years to really get the culture change were looking for, Phillips said during the forum. The lingering effects of concussions have littered the football landscape for decades. The onset of early dementia, strokes and suicides have been well documented. But the often-heard excuse, football is a tough game and injuries are part of the game, is the common response from players, coaches and NFL executives. The Sunday concussion was at least Cutlers third in the NFL, and he had another in college when playing for Vanderbilt. You need only to read about the deteriorating health of another Bears quarterback, Jim McMahon, who led the Bears to a Super Bowl victory in 1986, and who suffered multiple concussions throughout his 14-year career, to understand the seriousness of the problem. Just 53 years old, McMahon suffers from early stage dementia and is among 2,400 retired players suing the NFL for concussion-related brain injuries. There are no easy answers to solve the concussion crisis. But perhaps the weekafter-week blows would be reduced if a player cheap-shotted another in the head, he would be suspended immediately. Everblades Win Two of Three at Home; Depart on Six-Game Road Trip The Florida Everblades won two of three games last week at Germain Arena before departing on a six-game road trip to Greenville, South Carolina and Carolina. The local hockey team defeated Elmira twice on home ice, 6-3 and 5-3, before losing a wild 7-6 slugfest to first-place Gwinnett 7-6 Saturday night. Former Everblade Rylan Galiardi notched his second career hat trick to pace Gwinnett. Florida started the week with a 5-5 season record and two shootout losses.

Assisting with the effort, Forever Green Ace Hardware supplied paint for the project at a discounted rate. Were glad to provide our services to The Community House, because we know what an important function it provides here on the island, said business owner, John Grey. Its our way of helping the cause. Added Teresa Riska-Hall, executive director of The Community House, John Greys crew did a superb job, very professional, and the end result is just great. Its remarkable how it makes our space brighter and more inviting. We appreciate their commitment.

9B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 16, 2012 Sail & Power Squadrons James Strothers Receives RecognitionIn a recent United States Power Squadrons District 22 ceremony, Rear Commander Jim Strothers, SN received an award for reporting the most chart and navigation corrections in the districts Cooperative Charting program. Additionally, Rear Commander Strothers received Honor Roll status nationally from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), ranking #10 out of 192 who received this award nationally. The Cooperative Charting program is an agreement between the United States Power Squadrons and NOAA to provide information to keep navigation charts used by mariners up to date. Humans and nature make continuous changes to the information shown on nautical charts and NOAA relies on the efforts of groups such as the power squadrons to help keep this information both up to date and accurate. It is one of the squadron members most important civic contributions and saves the government millions of dollars each year. Strothers has been involved in the local Sanibel Power & Sail Squadrons Co-op Charting since he joined 15 years ago and chairs the national committee which oversees this program. In addition, he has worked with Sanibel Fire and Rescue to conceive and create a program originally known as the Sanibel Emergency Response Assistance Team to assist local fire, law enforcement, and other agencies during water-related emergencies. Once presented to the national USPS, the program was adopted countrywide and renamed Squadron Emergency Response Assistance Team. Strothers now also leads the national committee that oversees the emergency response program. The Sanibel Captiva unit was the original unit and currently has 35 members.

The finished products were then used as individual serving pieces for a fund-raising meal of soup and bread. Contributing guests kept the empty bowl as a symbol of the need to feed the hungry.

15B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 16, 2012 Beachview Men Compete In 2012 Fall ClassicThirty-one golfers teed-off on November 6 in the two-day 2012 Beachview Fall Classic. The ball was played down, and gimmee putts were banned... no matter how short. Bill Fetherston won the Gold Flight with two consistent net rounds of 66 and 62. Winning was easier than waiting line for six hours to vote, quipped the champ. Rene Lohser had a rough second round, but held on for second place on the strength of his amazing net 60 score on Tuesday. Club president Jerry Mader tied for third with Guy Tober, but won the first playoff hole. Jim Sauer won the White A Flight, with a solid one over par score of 141. Joe Barbieri finished second, just two strokes back, and Mike Zembko finished third. Bill Fellows squeezed out a onestroke victory over Skip Tutor in the Championship Flight in a head-to-head duel that went down to the 18th hole. Tony Baldino tied for third place with Dave Wisely, but Baldino got the nod when Wisely chose to finish his lunch and have his picture taken over walking the playoff tee on an empty stomach. Amazingly, Baldino had the highest score in his flight for the first round, but the lowest for the second round on Saturday. Hows that for a comeback? Tournament prizes of Luc Century glasswork will be awarded at the Beachview Mens opening dinner on November 15.

18B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 16, 2012 Around The Islands With AnneThe Sanibel Sprout Gets The Juices Flowing; The Brown Bag Relocates After 37 Yearsby Anne MitchellThe juice bar is now open at The Sanibel Sprout and judging by the stream of customers on Monday, it is filling a need among the islands health-conscious residents and visitors. Owners Nikki Rood and her mother Edith Rood have installed state of the art juicing and blending equipment to their existing health food store to produce the pure essence of such powerpacked fruits and vegetables as kale, wheat grass, broccoli, strawberries, dates and beets. According the Nikki Rood, more and more people are awakening to this synergistic view of nutrition. We like to think of ourselves as the islands wellness hub, where our customers are welcome to browse, shop, and find fun and empowering educational resources, she said. Our products are selected with the utmost care and are free of artificial preservatives, colors, flavors, sweeteners and hydrogenated fats. We also have a large selection of products specifically catering to gluten and dairy-intolerant individuals. Our shelves are brimming with nutritional vitamins and supplements. Let us know your needs and favorite products. Well make sure we carry them for you. Sharon Chamberlin said shes been a fan of the store since day one, but the juice bar is bringing her in more often. I love this kind of stuff, she said while sipping a Garden Goodness juice drink, a blend of cucumber, apple, carrot, lemon and beet while perched on a bar stool. She also ordered the lentil soup, one of several soups that will be rotated through the week. Some people drop in for wellness shots such as wheat grass, Hot Tomato and Blues Buster. One regular ordered a kale and cucumber drink and another, working through the juice menu, got the Garden Goodness. Rood said the most popular juice has been Emerald Island a mix of cucumber, kale, celery, apple and lemon. As a bystander, I was surprised how a voluminous amount of fruits and vegetables yields so little juice. But as Rood explained, its all the goodness without all the bulk and the body doesnt have to expend energy to digest it. I sampled a Strawberry Kiss, a smoothie made from bananas, strawberries, medjool dates and coconut water, blended with ice. It was thick and rich and quite delicious practically a meal sucked through a straw. Rood was trying out a cheesecake-type tart made without any dairy products. The crust is made from ground almonds and dates and the custardy filling from coconut meat, soaked raw cashews and vanilla. She garnished it with fresh fruit. These little three-inch tarts should be available be for sale next week, along with Paradise Pie, containing mango, papaya, dates and freshly blended strawberry jam. They serve two people. Also available next week will be really beautiful salads and a selection of wraps, some made with kale leaves. The Sanibel Sprout is at 2330 Palm Ridge Road, phone 472-4499 or log onto www.thesanibelsprout.com. The Brown Bag, probably the longestestablished menswear store on Sanibel, has moved to Tahitian Gardens after 37 years in Periwinkle Place. Its sister store C Turtles is already in Tahitian Gardens, just a few doors down. The store carries mens casual and business casual clothing including shirts, T-shirts, sweatshirts and hats. With the move comes some new additions, such as Alex Cannon shorts, True Grit casual cotton sweaters, Outer Banks and Penguin shirts and Spirit football-style long sleeve T-shirts with oversize Sanibel logo. Thats in addition to the mainstay brands including Tilley hats and straw fedoras and silk shirts by Tori Richard. The owner is Mary R. Janes and the phone number is 472-1171. The Lazy Flamingo 2 comes of age this month, celebrating 21 years at its 1036 Periwinkle Way location on Sanibel. To celebrate the occasion, owners Larry Thompson and Dick Muench will discount all food and drink purchases by 21 percent for three days, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, November 26 to 28. Thompson is the founder of the Lazy Flamingo concept, which features fresh seafood such as steamed shrimp, fried shrimp, conch fritters and buffalo wings.

There are three more Lazy Flamingos, the original at Blind Pass, Sanibel, which opened in February 1988; Bokeelia, Pine Island; and McGregor Boulevard, Fort Myers. The Periwinkle Way restaurant can be contacted at 472-6939. Another anniversary this time the 30th for the Tower Gallery on Sanibel will be marked on Saturday, November 17 with a champagne toast, appetizer and some new art. Some of the gallerys former artists/members will also be attending and exhibiting their work. They include Cathy Taylor, Francine Litofsky, Deborah Kleinow, Lois Ferguson and Linda Wiggins.

Social Security Office Hours To Be ReducedEffective November 19, the Fort Myers Social Security office will be open to the public Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. a reduction of 30 minutes each weekday. In addition, beginning January 2, 2013, the office will close to the public at noon every Wednesday. While agency employees will continue to work their regular hours, this shorter public window will allow them to complete face-to-face interviews and process claims work without incurring the cost of overtime. The significantly reduced funding provided by Congress under the continuing resolution for the first six months of the fiscal year makes it impossible for the agency to provide the overtime needed to handle service to the public as it has done in the past. In addition, on November 23, the day after Thanksgiving, all Social Security field offices will be closed to the public. As we did last year, employees working that day will focus on reducing backlogged workloads. Most Social Security services do not require a visit to a local office. Many services, including applying for retirement, disability or Medicare benefits, signing up for direct deposit, replacing a Medicare card, obtaining a proof of income letter or informing us of a change of address or telephone number are conveniently available at www.socialsecurity.gov or by dialing our toll-free number, 1-800772-1213.

But if you do, you could risk losing out on a future opportunity. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The Bovines creative forces start revving up as you plan for the upcoming holidays. Some practical aspects also emerge, especially where money is involved. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Moments of doubt disrupt your otherwise clear sense of purpose. Dont ignore them. They could be telling you not to rush into anything until you know more about it. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A planned trip might have to be delayed. Plan to use this new free time to update your skills and your resume so youll be ready when a new job opportunity opens. LEO (July 23 to August 22) A flood of holiday party bids from business contacts allows you to mix work and pleasure. Your knowledge plus your Leonine charm wins you a new slew of admirers. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) An unexpected act by a colleague complicates an agreement, causing delays in implementing it. Check out the motive for this move: Its not what you might suspect. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You might want to cut ties with an ingrate who seems to have forgotten your past generosity. But there might be a reason for this behavior that you should know about. Ask. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Be careful not to set things in stone. Much could happen over the next several days that will make you rethink some decisions and maybe change them. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Your plans to help provide holiday cheer for the less fortunate inspire others to follow your generous example. Expect welcome news by weeks end. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Youre in your glory as you start planning for the holiday season ahead. But leave time to deal with a problem that needs a quick and fair resolution. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) The upcoming holiday season provides a perfect setting for strengthening relationships with kin and others. A new contact has important information. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Instead of fretting over a cutting remark by a co-worker, chalk it up to an outburst of envy of your well-respected status among both your colleagues and superiors. BORN THIS WEEK: You instinctively know when to be serious and when to be humorous -attributes everyone finds endearing. On Nov. 24, 1849, John Froelich, the inventor of the first internal-combustion tractor, is born in Girard, Iowa. Froelich and investors formed the Waterloo Gasoline Traction Engine Company. The Waterloo Tractor Works, owned by John Deere since 1918, remains one of the largest tractor factories in the United States. On Nov. 22, 1900, the first car to be produced under the Mercedes name is taken for its inaugural drive in Cannstatt, Germany. The car was specially built for Emil Jellinek, a fan of fast, flashy cars. He bought 36 of them. In exchange, the company agreed to name the car after Jellineks 11-year-old daughter, Mercedes. On Nov. 19, 1915, British airman Richard Bell Davies performs a daring rescue, swooping down in his plane to whisk a downed fellow pilot from behind the Turkish lines. The British government awarded him the Victoria Cross. On Nov. 21, 1934, teenager Ella Fitzgerald wins Amateur Night at Harlems Apollo Theater. Putting her name in the hat on a bet, shed originally planned a dance number. History was made when she changed her mind and sang The Object of My Affection. On Nov. 20, 1945, a series of trials of accused Nazi war criminals, conducted by a U.S., French and Soviet military tribunal based in Nuremberg, Germany, begins. Twenty-four former Nazi officials were tried, and half would be sentenced to death by hanging. On Nov. 23, 1959, Robert Stroud, the famous Birdman of Alcatraz, is released from solitary confinement for the first time since 1916. For 15 years, Stroud lived among canaries brought to him by visitors, and he became an expert in birds and ornithological diseases. In 1943, Strouds Digest of the Diseases of Birds, a 500-page text that included his own illustrations, was published to general acclaim. On Nov. 25, 1963, President John F. Kennedy, who was assassinated three days earlier, is buried with full military honors at Arlington National Cemetery. An eternal flame was lit by his widow to forever mark the grave. Its not known who made the following sage observation: The sharper your words are, the more theyll hurt if you have to swallow them. Those who study such things say that Southerners watch more TV than residents of any other region of the country. Any given major ballet company will go through about 3,000 pairs of toe shoes every year. Under normal use, one pair will last for about one hour of performing. If you average out the depth of the worlds seas and the elevation of the land, youll find that the ocean is four times as deep as the land is high. Pierre-Auguste Renoir, one of the leading artists of the Impressionist movement, died in 1919, at the age of 78. His last words were, What a pity I have to go now just when I was beginning to show promise! Researchers studying the workings of memory briefly showed human volunteers sequences of five numbers on a computer screen. When asked to repeat the numbers, the test subjects could accurately do so half the time. The same researchers conducted the same test with a chimpanzee named Ayumu, who was able to recall the number sequences 80 percent of the time. A male sea otter shows affection by biting his mates nose. If youre a young baseball player hoping to make it in the big leagues, you might want to keep this fact in mind: Only 8 percent of those who sign major-league contracts actually play in even a single bigleague game. The other 92 percent spend their careers languishing in the minor leagues for a pittance. What is defeat? Nothing but education, nothing but the first step to something better. -Wendell Phillips THIS WEEK IN HISTORY STRANGE BUT TRUE THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

Eaton presented the development of a new device designed to improve the safety and comfort of patients during intravitreal injections at the annual meeting of the American Association of Ophthalmology in Chicago on November 10. Eaton will share results of clinical use of the Guarded Injection Device following clinical trials at Retina Health Center involving 67 patients. The device was developed by Eaton in collaboration with Dr. Hussein Wafapoor of Retina Health Center, Dr. Robert Avery of California Retina Consultants, and former Alcon employees Dave Booth and Dyson Hickingbotham. The device incorporates a small gauge needle covered by a thin protective sleeve designed to protect the needle from contamination risks before and during the injection such as aerosolized saliva droplets from speech or breathing, as well as from the eyelashes or other external contaminants. Retina Health Center recently began clinical trials to evaluate if the device is faster and/or more comfortable than existing techniques that use a lid speculum. This is the first of a number of products being developed by I-Tech JV Development Company which address issues with intravitreal injections to reach clinical trial. By combining a team of retinal thought leaders and experienced device designers, the I-Tech JV Development Company is able to rapidly assess and develop products to meet evolving retina needs.

25B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 16, 2012 School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My son whos in second grade is having some problems. His teacher says that he is a good kid, but his classroom manners arent the best and that he interrupts quite a bit. He has been punished for this but it hasnt made much of a difference. What can I do? Jessica M, Sanibel Jessica, Very often, behaviors such as classroom manners often referred to as prosocial skills must be taught directly to children. Sometimes it is just not enough for them to know that they must behave. They must have clear instructions and practice in understanding how to behave. It sounds like your son is having some difficulty listening. Listening well is probably the most important skill a child or for that matter, an adult can have. (Weve all met adults that dont listen well, and we know how unpleasant it is to spend any amount of time with them). According to Ellen McGinnis and Arnold P. Goldstein, authors of Skillstreaming the Elementary School Child, listening can be taught as a sequence of steps. Once a child has learned these five steps, it is important for children to practice them so they become proficient at using them. The steps are as follows: 1. Look at the person who is talking. 2. Sit quietly 3. Think about what is being said 4. Say yes or nod your head. 5. Ask a question about the topic to find out more. If you plan to teach these steps to your child there are some additional ideas you need to discuss so that these steps will make sense to him. You might want to point out that there are certain things a person can do to show that he is really listening. Discuss with your child the importance of facing the person who is talking and not to fidget, turnaround or do other things that indicate lack of attention. You should also talk with your child about the importance of verbal and nonverbal messages and how these messages indicate listening. Tell him it is important to show (without words) that he is listening. The head nod is a great way to do that. Make sure to tell your child that if he has questions to stay on topic. If he has a question about something else tell him to ask if he can change the subject. Practice these steps with your child. You can play school with him and pretend you are the teacher explaining an assignment. You can be yourself and explain to your child a specific family matter or activity that will take place. You can have practice sessions between children if you have another child that might benefit from this instruction or is willing to practice as well. Have you child learn the five steps and then when you rehearse them, both you and he can state the step you are demonstrating as you go through this. It wont take long for your child to understand the sequence, internalize it and use it correctly. 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.

26B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 16, 2012 Superior InteriorsCreating Your Own Personal Retreat by Marcia FeeneyOne of the greatest luxuries we can have, and the most elusive to find, is time for ourselves. Nearly every minute of our lives is programmed with family, business or social activities. To better handle our multiple responsibilities, we need time each day to retreat to our own private place, where we can restore our tired bodies and souls. Get in the habit of taking time to pamper yourself. Here are some ways to create your own divine personal retreat inside your home: Eliminate Clutter The first step to decorating a peaceful haven is to eliminate annoying disorder, like stacks of stress-provoking paper clutter. Discard dated material. Important papers should be filed in drawers or individually covered wicker file boxes. Magazines and other reading material can be attractively stored in decorative chests. Your decorator can help you find pretty and practical solutions for keeping your paper collection undercover. Pamper Yourself In Sleep There is hardly anything more restorative than a good nights sleep, enhanced even more so if followed by a leisurely morning in bed. Treat yourself to a glamorous setting that promotes lingering, so every day you can wake slowly to the joys of a new day. Tufted headboards, down comforters, plump pillows and romantic bed ensembles are just a few of the luxuries that can make your mornings more beautiful. Create A Cozy Corner Losing yourself in the worlds created by novelists is a wonderful way to escape from your daily routine. Prepare a quiet, cozy corner for uninterrupted time to read the latest bestseller or revisit a favorite book. Comfortable seating, proper lighting and a handy table for books and beverages are essential furnishings. Consider a decorative folding screen for extra protection from outside distractions. Make A Place For Beauty There are certain routine aspects of life that have a tendency to wear us down. One such activity faced by women is the daily beauty regimen. Imagine how much more appealing the mornings ritual would be if you were sitting on a boudoir chair, before a lovely vanity table, with a large mirror and the appropriate lighting. Reflect In Luxury Soaking in a tub is a glorious way of unwinding. Create the perfect bathroom grotto ambiance with plants, candles, scented soaps and oils along with soft, ethereal music. Warm up the tile floor with a lovely chenille rug to match your luxurious bath sheets. The ultimate finishing touch would be a fabulous chandelier on a rheostat for soft night light. Soothe The Soul With Music Every once in a while, you need to force your active mind and body to slow down. One of lifes greatest delights is listening to music. Music inspires a range of emotions, but one soothing suggestion is the sounds of Chopin, Debussy or Pachelbel. Their good-for-the-soul sounds make a soft background for reflecting and meditating. Let Creativity Flourish If you find peace in recording your life in a journal, pleasure in watercolors or dream of writing a blockbuster novel, you need a solitary place to pursue these creative endeavors. Have everything at hand when the mood strikes. Whatever your style preference or budget allowance, you can have the perfect creative accessories. Find Time for Peace And Quiet Finally, to complete your serene setting, shut down the computer, switch the phone to voice mail and turn off all the bells and buzzers. The absence of extraneous noise will allow you to get the most out of your personal retreat time. Marcia Feeney is an interior designer on Sanibel/Captiva Islands.

Looks like we are fast approaching that time of the year when we are briefly forced to run our heaters for a couple of months before we forget that we even have them for the rest of the year. As you turn them on for the first time, youll quickly realize just how long it has been when you start to smell that familier smell of the lint burning off. Open your windows for a brief period of time and you should get rid of that smell very quickly. Even better, be prepared and run your heater in advance of a cold snap. This way, you can avoid having to turn it on for the first time just before you and your family prepare for bedtime and be forced to endure the smell as you fall asleep. Now, heating bills can add a significant punch to your budget. There are a few things that you can do to avoid cardiac arrest when you receive your next bill. You dont need to turn your home into an inferno.

27B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 16, 2012Last week I conducted a very well attended estateplanning workshop at The Community House and I thank all who took time out of their day to be there. There were a lot of good questions posed during the workshop a couple of which I thought that Id review here today. One question covered my review of the concept of probate and revocable living trusts. I reminded everyone that unless one actually transfers their brokerage and bank accounts as well as their real estate into the trust, those assets would be subject to the probate process at death. Listing those assets on a schedule at the end of the trust isnt sufficient to transfer them, contrary to what some may believe. You actually have to change the title to the accounts and deeds to the properties. In order for my brokerage account to be properly owned by my trust, it cannot be titled in the name of Craig Hersch but rather must read Craig Hersch, Trustee for the Craig Hersch Trust dated January 15, 2000. An attendee then posed the question about owning property in different states. Suppose that one owns a residence here in Florida as well as a residence in Ohio. What happens if those properties are not transferred into ones revocable living trust? Generally speaking, you have the potential for double trouble. By that I mean when one owns property in different states theres likely going to be two probate administrations. One is called the domiciliary administration that occurs in the state in which you reside, and an ancillary administration in the other state that you own property. This may require two different attorneys, one in each jurisdiction, which obviously increases the costs of the administration. I also reviewed one of the major problems that I see when individuals who already have revocable living trusts make Florida their primary residence. This has to do with the Florida homestead descent and devise rules, which govern who you can leave your homestead to. Under Florida law, absent a nuptial agreement that specifically waives the Florida homestead rules, if you are married you must leave your primary Florida residence to your spouse. If you fail to do so, then you have an invalid devise. Many who bought their residence prior to becoming Florida residents placed the Florida home into either the husbands or wifes trust in order to balance out the value that each trust owns. This is commonly done since we dont know which spouse will die first and we want to maximize the use of each spouses exemptions from estate tax. Upon becoming Florida residents, however, even with no further action on anyones part, the spouse who owns the Florida residence is likely to have an invalid devise under Florida law because their revocable trust usually will at death create a credit shelter or bypass trust benefitting the surviving spouse in order to consume the decedent spouses estate tax exemption. Even though the credit shelter trust benefits the surviving spouse, this is an invalid devise under Florida law as it is not an outright disposition to the surviving spouse. The result of the invalid devise is that the decedents will and/or trust is ignored. The surviving spouse has an option of receiving a life estate or a onehalf interest in the homestead residence, with the decedent spouses children receiving a vested remainder or one-half interest. This can create huge problems. First, if one of the children is going through a divorce or has a creditor problem, this may cloud the title to the home. Further, the surviving spouse now needs the consent of all of the owners to sell the home, including agreeing to the sales price which now must be shared with all owners. Moreover, despite what the trust says, even if in a blended family all of the children were to one day share in the ownership of the home, only the decedent spouses children receive the benefits in my example. There are many more problems, including the possible loss of a portion of the homestead exemption among other things. There are ways to accomplish the goal of using the value of the residence against the estate tax exemptions, but the standard credit shelter/marital trust formula generally wont do it. The long and short of it is to avoid these problems when changing residence from a northern state to Florida, your estate plan should be reviewed and adjusted. This advice often contrasts with that of your northern attorney, who may believe that a simple amendment adjusting the applicable law of the trust to Florida is enough. It is not. This Florida homestead residence issue is quite ubiquitous and can be a big problem. Im going to host another workshop on these issues in February at The Community House, so if you want to hear it for yourself, youll have another opportunity this season. Craig R. Hersch.

Beckwith President and CEO of Hope HealthCare ServicesWhile National Hospice Month in November provides the opportunity to recognize many important aspects about hospice care, Hope HealthCare Services dedicates the month to those who are our highest priority the individuals and families in our care. Everything we do at Hope has a common focus: to improve the quality of life for those in our care through support and comfort, no matter their age nor their stage of illness. We strive to engage the community during National Hospice Month and throughout the year to help everyone learn about the programs and services available to our families and neighbors. During this national month of recognition, Hope is pleased to invite members of the public to a number of events designed to honor those in our community who have been touched by hospice, and to remember those whose memories we cherish. Celebration of Life memorial services will take place at each Hope location to provide convenient access throughout the communities we serve, including Fort Myers, Lehigh Acres, Cape Coral, Bonita Springs and LaBelle. I invite you to visit www.HopeHCS. org/CelebrationofLife for details and to learn more about our additional National Hospice Month activities, including a Tennis Challenge at The Sanctuary Golf Club on Sanibel, a clothing drive at Evelyn & Arthur at Coconut Point, and privately hosted cocktail parties and teas, health fairs and other events honoring the important role that hospice plays in our communities and families. Hope HealthCare Services offers programs that extend beyond hospice to serve thousands of individuals each day. Learn more at www.HopeHCS.org, and thank you for your long-standing support because everyone deserves Hope. Samira K. BeckwithFrom page 4BHollywood Hairstylistrestaurant.

Do you recommend this supplement for everyone? LS, Orlando, Florida Glutathione is fantastic for the human body. We make it actually and it supports liver function. It boosts your immune system, and helps you cleanse your system by grabbing heavy metals, like mercury and other poisons. Because its an antioxidant, it can neutralize oxidative damage from free radicals; those are the loose cannons in your body. Sounds too good to be true, right? To answer your question, popping a little capsule of glutathione is less effective than other options, in terms of raising blood levels. The gut does not absorb glutathione well. Glutathione is a nutrient best made inside our cells or intracellularly. Luckily, virtually all of our organs contain cells that are able to cook up the recipe of glutathione using three natural amino acids: glycine, glutamate and cystine (a more stable form of cysteine). To make it yourself, you could increase consumption of foods that contain these precursor amino acids, or you could pay for the direct injection, given by IV over about 5 or 10 minutes. Its worth the ow for the needle stick, and if youre chronically ill, this will have a huge impact in your ability to clear toxins. However, if working it into your diet is more appealing to you, then youre in luck because there is quite a variety of food that you can do this with! Some of the fresh foods known to be high in these amino acids are: avocados, asparagus, garlic, spinach, broccoli, tomatoes, milk thistle and unprocessed meats. However, if you do decide that oral supplementation of glutathione is the best choice for you though, I recommend Liposomal Glutathione by Empirical Labs, or S-Acetyl Glutathione by Xmogen. Both of these products can be ordered for you by a physician; they are not at health food stores. You can also buy a high-quality whey protein supplement at any health food store, and this will quickly raise levels by providing the essential amino acids you need as precursors. Just be sure if you take whey protein, you are not allergic to dairy components. If you have cancer, or take immunosuppressive drugs, or if youve had an organ transplant, I would avoid glutathione supplementation unless your doctor advises it. While glutathione is a great preventative measure to take, and Ive tried it orally, and by injection, the studies are inconclusive as to whether it is helpful for every disease and disorder that exists. Patients with AIDS or certain cancers do exhibit low levels of glutathione, but its not clear whether the reduced levels are a result of the disease process, or whether they played a part in the manifestation of the disease. Finally, acetaminophen is a drug mugger of this nutrient, so you will need to restore levels if you take that drug. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

29B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 16, 2012 Thanksgiving Still A Need For 3,000 Holiday TurkeysThanksgiving is fast approaching and turkeys are in very short supply in order to feed hungry Southwest Floridians. The Harry Chapin Food Bank has put out a plea for the 3,000 turkeys needed by its participating non-profit agencies. These agencies rely on donated turkeys to fill holiday food baskets for the ever-increasing numbers of hungry adults and children. Higher living costs, coupled with job loss and other difficulties, mean Southwest Florida families are struggling to make ends meet. The approaching holiday season will stress household budgets even more. Struggling families cannot afford holiday meals and other traditions that so many of us take for granted. They need your help. Individuals can assist the food bank by either purchasing turkeys or contributing financially to purchase turkeys. The approximate cost of each turkey is $15. Businesses can help by holding a turkey drive, collecting money so that the food bank can purchase turkeys, and encouraging customers to support the drive. To sign up or make a donation for the turkey drive, simply visit www.harrychapinfoodbank.org and look for the Turkey Team link. You can either make a general donation, or sign up and connect with Facebook to engage your network of friends, family and coworkers. Form a Turkey Team with family members, co-workers and friends, and multiply your generosity. Its a great way to join together to help end hunger here this Thanksgiving. Make a donation that will buy turkeys or Thanksgiving meal trimmings for those in need. Turkeys can be dropped off at the Harry Chapin Food Bank warehouse, at 3760 Fowler Street in Fort Myers, or at 2221 Corporation Blvd. in Naples; checks can be mailed to the same addresses and you can also make a secure donation online at www.harrychapinfoodbank.org. Time is of the essence as Thanksgiving doesnt wait the annual turkey day is approaching very rapidly. The Harry Chapin Food Bank solicits, collects and stores quality food for distribution to families in need through a network of 160 nonprofit agencies in Lee, Collier, Hendry, Charlotte and Glades counties that provide food to more than 30,000 people monthly. Over 1 million pounds of food are distributed by the Harry Chapin Food Bank monthly. For every dollar donated, about $6 in food value goes back to the community. In the past fiscal year, the Harry Chapin Food Bank distributed more than 15 million pounds of food and other grocery items valued at more than $24.9 million. This is roughly the equivalent of 12.5 million meals to people in need. For additional information about or to contribute financially to the Harry Chapin Food Bank, contact 334-7007 or go to www.harrychapinfoodbank.org. Fashions For Funding Raises Money For Hospitals Capital CampaignThe Lee Memorial Hospital Auxiliary is proudly sponsoring a fundraiser luncheon and fashion show, featuring fashions by Dillards, to support efforts to build Americas newest childrens hospital: the Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida. This event is an opportunity for people in the community to support this wonderful not-for-profit organization and its commitment to providing the best care for our children. Getting this hospital built is a major undertaking, and every effort, no matter how big or small, will take us one step closer to getting the doors open, said Sandy Heise, president of the Lee Memorial Hospital Auxiliary. Join in this afternoon of fashion and fun to support The Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida Capital Campaign on Tuesday, January 15 at the Lexington Country Club, 16257 Willowcrest Way in Fort Myers. Doors open at 11 a.m. with a silent auction. There will be door prizes and plenty of shopping. Be sure to check out Dillards Pop-Up Shop filled with handbags, accessories, jewelry and more. Tickets which are expected to sell out fast are available for $35 in the gift shops of Lee Memorial Hospital, HealthPark Medical Center, Cape Coral Hospital and Gulf Coast Medical Center, or by calling Marianne Bechhold at 466-1266. The Auxiliary is asking for donations of merchandise, gift certificates or services to use for auction items and door prizes. Donors will receive recognition for their contribution to this exciting event. This is the Auxiliarys seventh show and nearly 300 people are expected to attend. The Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida opened in 1994 and is currently located within HealthPark Medical Center. It was renamed the Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida in 2012. It is the only hospital in a five county radius specializing in the life-saving care of infants and children. The construction of the new Golisano Childrens Hospital will be paid for through a combination of philanthropy and bond funding. Lee Memorial Health System does not receive direct tax payer support, which is why community involvement is so important. For more information about the event, or to volunteer or donate, contact the cochairs of the Auxiliary, Jean Perkins at 567-2685, or Mary Jane Rockas at 437-6872.

Mom And Me by Lizzie and PryceLizzie and Pryce answer your questions and give advice about aging concerns from a two-generational perspective. A mother and daughter team, Lizzie is a retired RN and health educator, and Pryce is a licensed psychotherapist in private practice who specializes in the care of elders and people with chronic illnesses. Dear Mom & Me, After we retired, we moved to a lovely small town where many retired people lived. We joined the church and clubs and soon had a nice group of friends. Then, we realized after 10 years it was time to move closer to our one caring child. Five hundred miles was just too far in spite of visits, e-mails and the telephone. We sold our house and before we left gave a goodbye party. We received very few cards at Christmas from our friends. It didnt take long for us to realize that those who we thought were our friends were not, and now we realize we missed having deeper friendships with the people who have proven they were really our friends. We are very hurt and disappointed, and now realize older people (and I hope this does not include us) just make very light touch acquaintances out of sight, out of mind. Is this acceptable behavior in todays society? Edwina Dear Edwina, I do not know if the behavior you describe is acceptable, it certainly is very common. Friendships are convenient and situational. Rarely are close meaningful relationships formed. It is disappointing, however, to think relationships are deeper only to find like yourself that the relationships are more situational. I find in my travels that some older people have lifelong relationships, but fewer new relationships are formed because life can be uncertain due to moving and ever changing health status. Pryce Dear Edwina, There is no doubt that friendships in all ages are situational. People are attracted to others with similar interests. Older people who are well and able to be on the GO want to be with others who can also GO. Years ago, people did not move around but stayed in their own areas and had the same friends for many years sometimes very boring. Personally, I have moved around a lot and sometimes I try to keep contacts continued on page 31B Got A Problem? Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: What is the difference between acute and chronic stress?A: Acute stress can be intense but on a short-term level. Another example of acute stress is when you are driving and you hear a siren and you look in your rear view mirror and see the flashing lights of a police car, your heart rate goes up, your blood pressure rises, and you are freaking out about the possibility of getting a ticket. Once you have experienced the initial hassle, you return to homeostasis and all is okay. The other side of the coin is chronic stress. This can be something more longterm like dealing with a difficult relationship issues, unemployment, life-threatening illness and many other unrelenting stressors that last much longer than acute stress. The problem with chronic stress is that it can wreak havoc on our bodies. Chronic stress also accelerates the aging process by accelerating the worsening of conditions such as arthritis, chronic pain, diabetes, etc. There is also some evidence that the continued release of adrenal hormones eventually leads to the depletion of these hormones which can exacerbate depression and anxiety. Chronic stress can also lead to increased muscle tension and fatigue, migraine headaches, ulcers and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Nearly every system in the body can be damaged by chronic stress. Stresstriggered changes can increase problems with respiratory conditions such as asthma, bronchitis, more susceptibility to colds and flu resulting from a decreased immune system. In addition, stress may suppress the reproductive system, e.g., altering menstruation and ovulation in women, impotency in men and loss of libido in both men and women. Reduction of insulin levels caused by continual chronic stress the can contribute to adult onset diabetes. To reiterate, chronic stress contributes to adrenal fatigue and exhaustion and as previously mentioned, our 24/7 pace everyday of the year, is a major factor in burnout, exhaustion and insomnia. The cumulative effects of chronic stress can totally overwhelm the system if effective strategies for managing are not sought out.

Dr. DaveSwines Surrogate Sow Ranchby Dr. Dave HepburnAs a species, humans apparently arent terribly bothered about farming other species for food, clothing or luggage, yet controversy swirls around the use of animals bred to save the lives of thousands of people waiting for organ transplants. Xenotransplantation refers to the transplanting of live organs from one species to another. It appears that the baboon kidney and heart happens to be the best size match for a human organ. In addition, baboon tissue is less severely rejected by the human hosts immune system. Unfortunately finding a baboon, outside of Ottawa, is relatively rare. WANTED Ranch hand, willing to relocate to exciting new baboon ranch in the Kootenays. Must be able to recover quickly from convulsive fits of laughter after hours of gazing upon hundreds of brilliant psychedelic butts. Imagine the thrill on a beautiful Fernie morning as the foreman stirs your soul with Round up them boons boys, its harvest time! Call now and wrangle yerself a baboon. The more similar an animal is to a human, the less likely the humans immune system is to reject that animals organ. A yak liver or a muskrat ovary, for example, would be savagely rejected in nanoseconds by a human host. And while any organ belonging to a rat would likely happily survive for years in most men of the male variety, it is the pig that is most like man and has become the chosen animal for xenotransplantation research. (Did I just sense a collective nod from women the world over?) Porcine tissue has already been used for years as insulin and for replacement of defective heart valves. As if genetically modified foods havent stirred enough controversy, genetically modified organs are sure to raise concerns. With a deft touch of genetic manipulation, pigs can now be bred possessing major organs that are more human than pig. These organs are therefore less likely to be rejected by the human host. As sacrificing a pig is slightly more acceptable than sacrificing Snooki, pigs are the animals of choice. Advantages of xenotransplantation are obvious in a world where too many recipients await too few human organ donors. Plump pieces of pig pancreas could function in diabetics. Fetal pig brain may be used to mitigate the symptoms of Parkinsons disease. (SORRY: I pause here, once again distracted by my trusty hound Leo, who is now handing me a pair of slippers to go along with the newspaper, clean socks and hot chocolate brought to me earlier. Normally this dog has an irritating habit of reading over my shoulder, trying to fix my spelling misteaks. This past weak, however, the ignowrant beast has been extra nice but has refused to help me on the column at all.) The major risk of animal organ transplants is the potential for transmission of animal viruses into the human population. The pig, for example, coexists peacefully with a virus known as Porcine Endogenous RetroVirus (PERV) that cannot be eliminated. Studies have shown that PERV transmission to lab rats has caused no disease, though apparently the PERV rats did zip about trying to peek at other rats in the shower. We dont know what a PERV might do in man, but considering the effects of other cross species viruses such as Ebola and possibly the AIDS virus, caution cannot be overemphasized. And before running down to the barnyard market in search of those farm-fresh spare organs to replace a clogged kidney or a pickled liver, realize that only 31 people have attempted xenotransplantation and none have survived. The human body eventually rejects the xenograft. The wee Californian, Baby Fae, lasted a whopping 20 days with a baboon heart. The use of these xeno-organs as a temporary measure (actually kept outside the body), while awaiting a human donor, is also being studied. But as the race for more powerful anti-rejection (immunosuppressant) drugs escalates and herds of transgenic swine carry ready-to-harvest human organs, hospital orders may include, Hello, Swines Surrogate Sow Ranch? This is the hospital and wed like to order two hearts, 17 kidneys, one liver and a couple of pounds of bacon. (Excuse me, its the dog again.) No, Leo, I do not want more slippers or the Johnsons cat!
