3 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 1, 2013 2013 ABC Sale T-Shirts Are Picture PerfectAfter nearly four decades of ABC Sale T-shirts featuring the drawings and paintings of local artists, the 2013 Captiva Civic Associations shirts are sporting something new and different. This years shirts feature a dramatic composite photograph of an American white pelican soaring in front of billowing Florida clouds. The design has been created by professional New York advertising photographer Jeff Morgan. Bob Brace, who is heading up sales of the shirts this year, said they will be on sale until the assocations annual ABC Sale dinner on March 7 if they dont sell out before then. Morgan, a past president of the civic association, said of the picture adorning the shirt, Its a photograph I took of a white pelican one amazing day at the Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge when I got a whole bunch of great shots of white pelicans in flight. According to Morgan, the shot of the soaring pelican, taken against a clear blue sky, was combined using computer software with a dramatic cloud photo he had taken on Captiva. Morgan said he expects to create a large print of the composite photograph to auction at the annual ABC Sale, March 7, at The Sanctuary Golf Club. According to Brace, some Captivans have been collecting the T-shirts for decades. The golden-yellow shirts, which come in sizes from youth small to adult double extra large, as well as hats with the associations logo on them, can be purchased for $20 each weekday mornings between 10 a.m. and noon at the association office, 11550 Chapin Lane. They also are being sold in front of the Captiva Post Office on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to noon. Money from sales of the shirts is used to fund the Captiva Civic Associations many cultural and social activities aimed at providing meeting facilities for local groups, exhibit space for local artists, community library space, scholarships, housing for resident sheriffs deputies, preservation of island ecology and a unique island ambiance.

ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 1, 20138 Spotlight On CHRsubmitted by Claudia BurnsRichard McCurry first visited Sanibel in 1976. The next time he visited, in 1979, he decided to stay. In his late teens at that time, he snagged a job with Bank of America as a courier between Sanibel and Pine Island by boat. 28 years later, he retired from the bank as assistant vice president. In 1990, McCurry started a family. As it increased in numbers, he struggled to find larger places to live. Thanks to CHR (Community Housing Resources), he was able to keep himself and his loved ones on the island. And, after seven years in CHRs affordable housing, hed managed to save enough to make a down payment on a house. McCurry attributes much of his success to CHR, and shows his appreciation of their support by constantly giving back to our community. Youll see him all over the island, lending a hand to businesses and charitable groups, plus serving on numerous boards and committees. In 2006, McCurry turned an avocation into a vocation by purchasing the Sanibel Caf, a restaurant known for its island-style cuisine. McCurrys first-born, Katie, manages the caf and ensures that customers are well served. In addition to running the restaurant, Katie attends Edison State College parttime, with plans to become an EMT, and, eventually, a specialist in sports therapy. She also trains as a runner and participates in races for charitable causes. What goes around, comes around. Katie grew up in CHR housing and now lives in a CHR complex with her fouryear-old son Tyler. Sanibel has always been her home, and, like her father, she gives back in every way she can. McCurry said, Without CHR, I couldnt have lived on Sanibel. My life would have been completely different, and I wouldnt be contributing to the community Ive come to love.

11 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 1, 2013 Annual Kiwanis Spaghetti Dinner Comes To Town February 23submitted by Tom Sharbaugh, Sanibel-Captiva Kiwanis ClubFebruary may be a short month, but it is packed with noteworthy events. Theres Ground Hog Day, Mardi Gras, Super Bowl Sunday, Valentines Day and Presidents Day. However, the last weekend in February brings an annual event that has special significance to Sanibel and Captiva, the annual Kiwanis Spaghetti Dinner. For 30+ years the Spaghetti Dinner has been the biggest gathering on the Islands, bringing together the entire community for an entertaining evening of good food and fun. This years Spaghetti Dinner will be held on Saturday, February 23 at The Community House, located at 2173 Periwinkle Way. Dinner will be served from 4 to 8 p.m., with music, dancing, raffle and auction continuing until 10 p.m. Admission is $8 in advance or $9 at the door, and children under 10 eat free. Patrons get a complete Italian feast: spaghetti and meatballs with Kiwaniss acclaimed secret recipe sauce, salad, toasted garlic bread and beverages. And its all-you-can-eat, so no one goes away hungry. After dinner, desert and coffee are available in The Community House auditorium, where the raffle and auction part of the evening unfolds. Everyone loves the excitement of a raffle drawing and a live auction, especially when there are interesting items to be had, and regardless of what type of item gets you going, you are sure to find it there. Items for the Kiwanis Raffle and Auction are donated by a wide range of Island merchants, artists, writers, restaurants, resorts and service companies, so the selection on display represents a true sampling of the Islands best. Spaghetti Dinner has become a beloved tradition for the food, the fun and the socializing opportunity it provides. Everyone in town seems to be there, either dining or serving as a volunteer. Youll see your neighbors, your friends, even officials from City Hall. So its a good time to say hello, reconnect and share a good time. Underlying all the fun is a very important purpose, as funds raised by the event are used by the Kiwanis Charitable Foundation to benefit local community youth groups and other worthy nonprofit enterprises in and around Sanibel and Captiva. About 30 local groups receive support from the event. The Kiwanis Club puts a lot of effort into staging the Spaghetti Dinner every year, and our sponsors and prize donors do as well, but its definitely worth it, said Kiwanis President Jonathan Tongyai. We love seeing the whole town turn out to enjoy the event, but we love even more the idea that the money raised helps make life better for area youth. When we see the smiles on the faces of the young people who are helped, like the students who receive our scholarships or the kids playing team sports with our support, thats what makes it all worthwhile. Advance tickets to the Spaghetti Dinner can be purchased from any Kiwanis member and also at Bank Of The Islands, Baileys General Store, Big Red Q Printing, and Periwinkle Park. The sponsors who generously underwrite the event are: Sanibel Captiva Trust Company, Bank Of The Islands, Baileys General Store, Sanibel Air Conditioning, Sanctuary Island Electric, Island Photography, Barefoot Charlies Painting, Billys Bike Shop, Lazy Flamingo II, and The Sanibel Bean. Meatballs for the event are provided by Tween Waters Inn. For information call 395-0469 or e-mail sharbaugh67@comcast.net.

Anthony Ank George Malecha was born September 9, 1956, in Northfield, Minnesota, to George and Delores (Mach) Malecha. He was baptized, confirmed and attended parochial school at St. Dominic Catholic Church. He graduated Northfield High School in 1975 and attended the University of Minnesota where he received his bachelors degree in Economics. While at the University he participated in the study abroad program in Poland. The time he spent in Poland created friendships that have lasted throughout his life. In 1984, Anthony married and through this union, four daughters became a part of his life. In 1987, he settled in Cresco, Iowa, and began working as a carpenter/contractor. In 2005, after many great years in Cresco, he moved to Sanibel Island. There, he and his brother Ken formed their contracting business, RAM. Ank enjoyed fishing, golfing, playing cards and following the Twins. He loved going to the cabin, going out on his boat and most of all spending time with his family and friends. He had a wonderful ability to add humor to any situation, and his kind, caring, and selfless nature was extended to everyone he met. Survivors include four daughters: Valerie and husband Stacey Wilberding of Elma, Iowa, Naomi and husband Jason Bye of Cresco, Iowa, Katy Malecha of Cresco, Audra and husband Shawn Williams of Tampa, Florida; five grandchildren: Colter, Hunter, Brady, Samantha and Vanessa; seven siblings and their spouses: Mike (Jan) of Bloomington, Ken (Judi) of Colorado Springs, Joan (David) Hinderscheit of Northfield, Mark (Zen) of Northfield, Fran (Lisa) of Fountain Hills, Arizona, Tom (Cathy) of Waseca, Jon (Lisa) of Northfield; his brother-in-law, Tim (Olesya) Anderson of Mankato; special friend, Patti; many nieces, nephews, other relatives and a multitude of friends.

Arrangements are with the Benson & Langehough Funeral Home. www.northfieldfuneral.com Gordon Pohl Schopfer, 96, went to be with Jesus on December 19, 2012 with his family at his bedside. He was born in West Leyden, New York to Earl E. and Erma C. Schopfer May 5, 1916. The family moved to Syracuse in 1920. He attended public schools with significant interest in the Boy Scouts, playing the trumpet and entrepreneurship. He earned distinction in archery, by winning the 1934 Junior Championship of the United States. He furthered his education as a graduate of the Syracuse University School of Architecture in 1939. He was a member of Psi Upsilon fraternity. After graduation he apprenticed in New York City and Washington, DC, where he was a supervising architect for the production of working drawings for the Pentagon complex. He served his country for 3-1/2 years by enlisting in the 332nd Engineering Regiment of the Army Corp of Engineers as a captain, supply officer and a recipient of the Bronze Star in the European Theater. Returning home, he met and married Rhonda F. Reed of Geneva, New York, moved back to Syracuse and founded Schopfer Architects in 1948. His firm, through his leadership, gained distinction in a wide scope of practice, including churches, banks, commercial and residential projects, all of which bore his unique stamp. Spanning a career of working and building in downtown Syracuse, he was an urban innovator and key leader in the creation and promotion of a new planned civic core called the Community Plaza. As a direct result, he was chosen by IM Pei and Partners to be one of the principle supervising architects for the Everson Museum project. Schopfer Architects continues today, dedicated to maintaining the high professional standards established by its founder. Gordon and Ronnie retired to Sanibel Island, Florida in 1986, where they became actively involved in community affairs. Gordon contributed his time and talents to the Sanibel Community Association, Lions, The Military Officers of America and the Lake Murex Association. His architectural background was well appreciated and utilized in a consultative way, which Gordon thoroughly enjoyed. Gordon and Ronnie would come North every summer to enjoy boating with family and friends on the St. Lawrence River, returning to Florida before the permafrost settled in. His quiet wisdom and subtle strength made him a sought after voice of experience to family and friends alike. He truly was one of The Greatest Generations finest. His passing has left a huge hole in the hearts of his friends, family and long time special friend, JoAnn Bock. Gordons involvement with The Community House began, first as a volunteer, and later as a long-time member of the SCA Board of Directors. He played a central role in SCAs property acquisition and development efforts. In recognition of his important contributions, he was named director emeritus of the SCA, and in 2009 he was further honored with creation of the Gordon Schopfer Lifetime Achievement Award for service to SCA. He will be sorely missed. Gordon was predeceased by his parents, Erma and Earl, beloved wife of 53 years, Ronnie, and his brother, Ralph. He is survived by his sons, Dr. Gary (Connie) R. Schopfer of Liverpool, New York, E. Kevin (Carol) Schopfer of Weston, Massachusetts, grandchildren, Cynthia(Keith)Langford of Kissimee, Florida, Courtney Duclos Schopfer of New York, New York Andrew (Jana) E. Schopfer of Poughkeepsie, New York, and two great grandchildren, Reed Daniel and Tessa Louise. A celebration of his life will be held at The Community House on Thursday, February 21, 2013 at 3:30 p.m. for family and friends. There will be a reception following the gathering. Contributions can be made to the Sanibel Community Association, 2173 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel, FL 33957.

14 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 1, 2013 Free Lecture On Parkinson DiseaseOn Thursday, February 7, at 1 p.m. at St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church, Jeanne Csuy will lead a discussion on Parkinson dsease. Csuy is a physical therapist, Parkinson care consultant and assistant professor at Hodges University. She was instrumental in establishing the local Parkinson Program while working at Lee Memorial Hospital. Funding for this program was provided by the National Parkinson Foundation. Over one million Americans have Parkinson disease, a progressive neurological disorder affecting movement. The cause is unknown but researchers are making progress in understanding the disease and its treatment to enhance neuroplasticity or brain function. Csuy has been a guest speaker at many symposiums throughout Florida. She has partnered with John Argue to create a video on the Activities of Daily Living, collaborated on a falls prevention book and produced an exercise video. Her expertise is in helping people living with Parkinsons and their care partners to understand the importance of exercise along with their medication to live well with this chronic disease. She will discuss diagnosis, advances in treatment and resources in Southwest Florida. This lecture is free and open to the public. For more information, call Roberta Heller, parish nurse, or Susan Gonzalez, church secretary, at 4722173. Unitarians To Meet February 3Unitarian Universalists of the Islands will meet on Sunday, February 3, at 5 p.m. in Fellowship Hall at the Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ, 2050 Periwinkle Way. The service is open to the public. Unitarian Universalist congregations welcome people with diverse beliefs from all religious or philosophical traditions. As a theologically diverse religion, Unitarian Universalism encourages its members to seek their own spiritual path. In her 1993 best-selling book, A History of God, Karen Armstrong wrote: Despite its otherworldliness, religion is highly pragmatic. As soon as it ceases to be effective it will be changed -sometimes for something radically different. Science and modern society are challenging traditional theological concepts of God. Some even say that the idea of God has outlived its usefulness. What does process theology, a belief system grounded in the relationship between science, nature and human beings, have to say about understanding God in the 21st century? The speaker will be Roger Grugel, a candidate for the ministry through the Unitarian Universalist Association, which has its headquarters in Boston, Massachusetts. He will graduate with a Master of Divinity degree from Meadville Lombard Theological School in May. In 2011-12, Grugel was a chaplain resident at Tampa General Hospital. Currently, he is the ministerial intern at The Unitarian Universalist Church of Fort Myers. Prior to entering the seminary, Grugel was an attorney for 26 years with the Minnesota Family Farm Law Project, a statewide non-profit law firm that represented family farmers who were losing their farms to creditors. Lively discussion, fellowship and refreshments follow the service.

17 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 1, 2013 CROW Case Of The Week Screech Owlby Patricia MolloyAn adult eastern screech owl was admitted to CROW on January 2. Upon arrival, it wasnt standing well and seemed tired and depressed. I looked at its eyes quickly, but didnt perform a full physical because it was so stressed out. But his eyes looked good and there was no sign of trauma when I palpated him, said Dr. Helen Ingraham, DVM intern. Eastern screech owls (Megascops asio) are one of the smallest species of owls in the world. They are strictly nocturnal hunters who are difficult to detect during daylight hours due to their habit of occupying the cavities of trees. The following day, Dr. Helen noticed that he was standing but leaning to the left. She checked his ears and found something firm in his ear. It was a dried blood clot which I removed immediately. I started him on meloxicam (a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug ) right away. The finding raised the unfortunate possibility that the owls condition was worse than initially feared. If there is that much blood, you can be pretty certain that the ear drum is ruptured, said Dr. Heather Barron, hospital director. Hearing is so important to owls and anything you put in that ear is potentially toxic, so I suggested that they put the owl on systemics to prevent infection. All that blood inside its ear is a petri dish for bacteria and we want to do everything we can to preserve its hearing. Dr. Heather added, We dont think theres an infection there now; we simply want to prevent one from forming. Due to the fact that the ear canal in a screech owl is very shallow, Dr. Heather advised not to put anything inside the ear other than a little hydrogen peroxide. Clean the blood away from the outside as best you can, advised Dr. Heather, and remember to be very gentle. While monetary donations are invaluable, it is the volunteers that have made CROW successful for more than four decades. They collectively donate thousands of hours each year performing necessary tasks that allow the doctors and medical interns (who often work more than 12 hours a day) to care for the thousands of sick, injured and orphaned patients that have been treated at CROW. If you are interested in grazing tortoises, feeding baby raccoons and exotic birds, go to the clinics website or call the volunteer coordinator for more information. If you do not have the time to spare to volunteer, consider sponsoring CROWs patients, as they do not have health insurance to cover their bills. You may specify that your donation to be used to help specific patients (such as this storys subject, patient #0018) or a certain species. Go to CROWs website for more information.

18 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 1, 2013 An Inside Look At Wildlife Recovery The CROW Picture Show offers an insiders look at why critters come to CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife), and features photos of the wild animals who wind up there. Last year, Southwest Floridas only wildlife hospital cared for 3583 sick, injured and orphaned animals. Of the 200 different species, 61 percent were birds, with 33 percent mammals and six percent reptiles. Due to restrictions imposed by governmental agencies, CROW cannot allow visitors to view patients in person. But in this 30-minute presentation, visitors will see numerous photos of current and past patients, with commentary by Claudia Burns, a veteran clinic volunteer. The next CROW Picture Show is on Friday February 8 at 11 a.m. in the CROW Healing Winds Visitor Education Center at 3883 Sanibel-Captiva Road, across from The Sanibel School. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for teens, free for members and children 12 and under. The fee includes the presentation, plus the opportunity to explore the hospitals hands-on educational facility and become familiar with CROWs efforts to save wildlife through compassion, care and education.

19 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 1, 2013 Audubon Presentation On The Threatened Florida Scrub JayEndemic to central Floridas nutrient-poor scrub habitat, the Florida scrub jay has been a distinct species for more than two million years. Because of this, it is heavily sought by birders from around the world. At 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, February 7, Sanibel-Captiva Audubon will present Dr. Reed Bowman, director of the Avian Research Lab at Archbold Biological Station, Lake Placid, Florida, in a presentation entitled: The Scrub Jay: Past, Present and Future. Of the hundreds of native bird species living in Florida, only one, the Florida scrub jay, is found nowhere else -they are true native Floridians. The species is a habitat specialist found only in scrub habitat, the most endangered ecosystem in Florida. An intelligent and inquisitive species, the most striking attribute of its behavior is its remarkable tameness. As such, scrub jays willingly take food from human hands. Unfortunately, this tameness is dangerous to the wellbeing of the species. The Florida scrub jay population has declined dramatically, and the species is now federally listed as threatened. With a BA (1980) from SUNY in environmental sciences, and a MS (1985) from McGill in wildlife biology and PhD (1992) in biology from the University of South Florida, Dr. Bowman is considered the foremost authority on the Florida scrub jay. He is an elected member and fellow of the American Ornithologists Union, presidentelect of the Association of Field Ornithologists, and a past president of the Florida Ornithological Society. He was chairman of the FOS Bird Records Committee that evaluates new additions to the avifauna of the state. He is a member of the Florida Scrub Jay Recovery Team and helped develop the soon-to-be released Recovery Plan for this species. A beneficiary of grants and contracts from U.S. Fish and Wildlife, Florida Department of Agriculture and the Department of Defense, he has at least 67 published studies to his name.

20 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 1, 2013 Film Series To Continue With Bird Flight ProjectDing Darling Refuges inaugural eight-week Film Series continues on Wednesday, February 6 at 2:30 p.m. with the documentary Winged Migration. Amazing cinematography propels this Oscar-nominated documentary that provides a birds-eye view of the grueling semiannual migration of various avian species as they make their way across vast distances to more moderate climates. For eighty million years, birds have ruled the skies, seas and earth. Each spring, they fly vast distances, said Academy Award-winning producer-director Jacques Perrin. Each fall, they fly the same route back. This film is the result of four years following their amazing odysseys, in the northern hemisphere and then the south, species by species, flying over seas and continents. Five teams of people (more than 450 people, including 17 pilots and 14 cinematographers) were necessary to follow a variety of bird migrations through 40 countries and the seven continents. The film covers landscapes that range from the Eiffel Tower and Monument Valley to the remote reaches of the Arctic and the Amazon. The project employed all manner of man-made machines including planes, gliders, helicopters and balloons. Filmmakers used innovative techniques and ingeniously designed cameras to allow them to fly alongside, above, below and in front of their subjects. Admission is free to the film, which is sponsored by the Sanctuary Golf Club of Sanibel Island and Ding Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge (DDWS). Seating is limited and available on a first-come basis. Future film events are listed below. All films begin at 2:30 p.m. except where noted.

ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 1, 201322 Change Your Tactics With The Weatherby Capt. Matt MitchellConditions on the water this week were so much better for fishing than they have been the last few weeks. Better tides made for better water movement; add to that warm days and mostly light winds and the result was some of the most consistent fishing we have had in weeks. The longer the good weather sticks around it seems to be tricking our fish into believing its spring. Catchand-release snook fishing this week was better than in months and lots of other species were more than happy to take a hooked bait too. When I think about our February fishing, it is usually all about super low minus tides and cold conditions. Looking ahead at the tides for the month, almost every day has a minus tide. We will also have some of the clearest water of the year. Clear water and low tides together mean a great time to find new areas to fish and learn the sound a little better. Flats and sandbars that dont show all year will be high and dry. Sight fishing for redfish right now can be awesome but the fish can be so spooky in gin clear ankle deep water you will need every bit of stealth you can muster to get one to eat a bait. One of my favorite winter time techniques is to work deep channels during the lowest periods of the tide. These channels can be anything from a canal basin or narrow mangrove creek to a natural channel cut through a bar by the tide. This deeper water can stay relatively warm during short periods of cold weather. The colder the air temperature and water is, the more sheltered deep water channels I like to fish. During warmer temperatures like those we have had, deeper channels out in the open have been the best action During cold periods, water thats as little as two to three degrees warmer than everything else often makes all the difference between fish feeding and not feeding. Mild winter cold is not a bad thing for our fishing. It bunches up the fish, often putting lots of fish in a very small area. Its amazing how many different species of fish you can catch in areas such as these. Once you find one of these cold weather refuges, it generally will hold fish year after year. Changing tactics with the changing weather is one of the main things to remember to consistently catch fish at this time of year. Cold fronts will push through all winter long almost on a weekly basis, although this year these fronts have been much weaker than in years past. This year it really seems like we are still waiting on our winter to arrive it. Its even possible that we wont have much winter cold. If that happens, we could be seeing tarpon in our area by the end of March. The water temperature will be the biggest factor in what are fish are going to be doing this season. 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.

Adams, author of The Orvis Guide to Fly Fishing for Coastal Gamefish. The lectures begin at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Friday, February 8, in the free Ding Darling Education Center on Sanibel Island. Aaron Adams, PhD, a marine biologist who fly fishes, figured out what was missing from saltwater fishing and frustrating saltwater anglers. He presents information on coastal gamefish behavior and diets, the habitats they use, when and where they eat different prey, and the best locations and times to fish for them. Recreational anglers will catch more fish if they know more about their quarry, said Adams. Thats a pretty simple statement, but obtaining this knowledge is a challenge that many anglers are unable to meet. At the top of the list of things to know about the fish we pursue is how they use their habitats. On any given day, 80 percent of the fish are in 20 percent of the fishable area. If we can understand what makes these fish tick, then we are more likely to be in the right place at the right time with the right approach -all of which are needed to catch more fish. Knowing more about fish and their habitats not only makes for better success on the water, it also makes anglers better stewards, says Adams. And since anglers are the primary users of coastal habitats, they have a responsibility to be good stewards. The top threat to Floridas recreational fisheries is habitat loss and degradation, so the more anglers learn about fish and their habitats, the better chance they have of protecting them, he believes. Admission is free to the lecture, which is sponsored by Shell Point Retirement Community and Ding Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge (DDWS), as part of its 11-week Friday Afternoon Lecture Series. Seating is limited and available on a first-come basis. Future events are listed below; all include two presentations at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. As usual, Wildlife Drive is closed on Friday, but visitors are welcome to enjoy the free Education Center and the recreational opportunities at Tarpon Bay Explorers, the refuges official concessionaire located at its Tarpon Bay Recreation Area.

But caution is still advised through the end of the week. Until then, a step-by-step approach is best. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) That cooperation you request could come at too high a price. Since few can beat the Bovine at being clever and resourceful, why not see what you can do on your own? GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Aspects favor a quieter time spent getting closer to the people who are especially important to you. Theres always much more to learn and appreciate about each other. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The concerned Crab will act to resolve workplace misunderstandings before they get out of hand and cause more-serious problems. Co-workers rally to support your efforts. LEO (July 23 to August 22) What the Big Cat might see as a disturbing act of disloyalty might just be a failure of communication on both sides. Take time for mediation rather than confrontation. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Be more patient with those who seem unwilling to accept your version of whats right. The fact is, theres a lot more to learn on all sides of this issue. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) It should be easier to assess the facts youll need to make an important decision. But dont commit if you still have doubts. There could be more you need to know. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your excitement level remains high as you continue working on that new project. Expect some setbacks. But on the whole, all will move pretty much on schedule. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) It might be wise to be more prudent with expenses right now. But your financial situation should soon clear up, and you could be back shopping, happily as ever. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) You might prefer sticking with your current schedule. But some newly emerging information could persuade you to consider a change. Keep an open mind. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You might want to reject a suggested change. But it could be wise to go with the flow, at least for a while. You can always return to your first plan if you like. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Youre bolstered by both the practical and poetic sides of your nature as you maneuver through some unsettled emotional situations. Things ease up by weeks end. BORN THIS WEEK: People reach out to your generosity and wisdom, and consider you a trusted and treasured friend. On Feb. 8, 1587, after 19 years of imprisonment, Mary Queen of Scots is beheaded in England for her complicity in a plot to murder Queen Elizabeth I. Her son, King James VI of Scotland, accepted his mothers execution, and upon Queen Elizabeths death in 1603, he became king of England, Scotland and Ireland. On Feb. 5, 1631, Roger Williams, the founder of Rhode Island and an important American religious leader, arrives in Boston. Williams alarmed the Puritan oligarchy by speaking out against the right of civil authorities to punish religious dissension. In 1635, he was banished from the Massachusetts Bay Colony by the General Court. On Feb. 6, 1917, a German submarine torpedoes and sinks the passenger steamer California off the Irish coast. The explosion of the torpedo was so violent that the 470-foot, 9,000-ton steamer sank just nine minutes after the attack. On Feb. 9, 1942, the Normandie, regarded by many as the most elegant ocean liner ever built, burns and sinks in New York Harbor during its conversion to an Allied troop transport ship. A welder accidentally set fire to a pile of flammable life preservers, and by morning the ship lay capsized in the harbor, a gutted wreck. On Feb. 10, 1957, Laura Ingalls Wilder, author of the best-selling Little House series of childrens novels based on her childhood on the American frontier, dies at age 90 in Mansfield, Mo. In 1932, Wilder, then in her 60s, published her first novel, Little House in the Big Woods. On Feb. 7, 1970, Louisiana State University basketball star Pete Maravich scores 69 points in a game against Alabama, setting a Division I record that would stand for 21 years. He died of a heart attack at age 40 in 1988 during a pickup game of basketball in California. On Feb. 4, 1983, Karen Carpenter, a singer who long suffered under the burden of the expectations that came with pop stardom, succumbed to heart failure brought on by her long, unpublicized struggle with anorexia. She was just 32 years old. It was German-born theoretical physicist (and sometime philosopher) Albert Einstein who made the following sage observation: An empty stomach is not a good political adviser. According to research conducted at Rutgers University, graduate students who are studying business are more likely to cheat than students in any other field of study. Youve almost certainly heard of Supreme Court Associate Justice Thurgood Marshall, the first black American to serve as such. You might not know, though, that he was known to call a court recess at 1 p.m. so he could watch the soap opera Days of Our Lives. Cheese has been around for a long time, and it can last longer than you may think. In Ireland 25 years ago, a hunk of cheese was discovered that dated back 1,700 years -and it was still edible. If youre like the average person, the hair on your head takes two to three months to grow 1 inch. At the 1904 Worlds Fair in Saint Louis, it was particularly hot. An ice-cream vendor was doing so much business that he ran out of the cups in which he was serving the ice cream. He looked to the other foodsellers to see if they had any spare containers that would be useful, but he had no luck. Finally, desperate not to lose any more business, he bought some waffles from a nearby vendor and wrapped one around each scoop of ice cream as he sold it. The result was even more popular than ice-cream in a cup, and thus the ice cream cone was born. The most common surname in Germany is Schultz. Life is hard. After all, it kills you. -Katharine Hepburn THIS WEEK IN HISTORY STRANGE BUT TRUE THOUGHT FOR THE DAY26 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 1, 2013

ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 1, 201328 Birds Eye ViewGreen Herons Can Use Baitby Mark Bird WestallThere is a small heron on Sanibel that can be found just about anywhere there is some water. If you are lucky, you can discover them feeding from the low branches or roots of the mangroves, but they will also frequent the edges of the Sanibel River and development lakes in the freshwater system of the island. What makes it difficult to see these little guys is the fact that they almost never are seen out on the open mudflats with the other herons and egrets, and when hunting from the low branches along the shoreline, they are usually hidden from view. This heron is called the green heron. When we see one hiding amongst the shadowy mangrove roots on one of my canoe trips, I am quite often asked why he is called the green heron when he has so little green on him. In the field, it is not always easy to see the green coloration of his back feathers unless you catch him just right in the sunlight. I joke that some people say he is called the green heron because he has so little green on him. But you have to realize that the first person to identify this bird probably went out and shot him and was able to pick up the bird and hold it up in the sunlight where the green iridescent feathers could be seen. For a while, people started calling it the green-backed heron. I preferred that name because I thought it was a better descriptive name, but it seems that the simple green heron name is the official name now. What is fascinating to me about this bird, however, is it has been well documented in using bait. Charles Darwin (who, justifiably, got most of the credit) and Alfred Russel Wallace came up with the theory of natural selection in the mid-1850s that laid the framework whereby species evolved physical traits. But it was not until the mid-1970s that another great thinker by the name of E. O. Wilson came up with the concept that species not only evolved physical traits; he argued that they also evolved behavioral traits. He called this theory sociobiology. If you look at the green heron, it becomes obvious fairly quickly that this species is at a disadvantage when it comes to competing with the rest of the herons; it is too short. The wetlands are almost always too deep for this bird to hunt effectively, even out on the shallow mudflats. Thus, the bird is relegated to the shores of the wetlands. To compensate for what this bird lacks in physical stature, it has made up for it in evolving the behavior whereby it sometimes grabs hold of an insect or a leaf, places it on the water in front of him and waits until the fish come up to the surface to check out the bait. Years ago, I took a family out on a trip and when I told them this story, the father hit his head as though he was thinking, Wow! I could have had a V8! He said that he and his family had gone to a fish hatchery once and they were feeding the fish fish pellets from a little vending dispenser (Ill let the negative issue of feeding the wildlife slide for now). But while they were feeding the fish, a green heron flew over, grabbed hold of a pellet out of the water, went over to the other side of the pond, placed the pellet down in the water and started staring at it. The whole family was amused, but couldnt figure out what was going on until I told the story about green herons using bait. Obviously, that green had learned to substitute its natural bait for man-made bait. What I would be interested in knowing is; did the offspring of this bird learn to use pellets as bait by watching their fathers behavior? Now, because people want to believe that every thought that enters into their mind occurs to them because they are intelligent, reasoning creatures, when some other species simulates a behavior that humans use: Well, it must be intelligence. So, when they hear my story about the green heron and the use of bait, they will quite often respond by saying, Wow! I didnt realize they were so smart! And I have to reply back, No! The green heron is not being smart. If you mean like human smart. If he was human smart, he would have invented fishing line, rod and reel, motor boats, GPS and depth finder. That is what makes us smart. That is what makes us different from all the other species on this planet. Our brains allow us to expand our thoughts beyond the basic instinctive animal behavior and improve our technological capabilities in manipulating the environment around us.But I would also argue that when a child is taken fishing for the very first time and the adult shows the child how to put bait on a hook, when the child says, OK, I understand. The child isnt being smart either; it is just an animal that has evolved a behavior concerning the use of bait, and the child is given information that fits in with that evolved behavior; that information makes sense. But in the same light, when that same child turns 16 years old and a parent hands him the keys to a car and says, Son, please be careful! Automobiles can be dangerous things when used recklessly. A car can kill you! The child will be thinking, Oh, come on, dad! Im just going to go out with my friends and drive fast; maybe have a little to drink. Why I might even text while driving. it wont happen to me! I am always amazed how people can be scared to death of seeing a snake or alligator in their backyard, but then act like the extinct dodo birds of the island of Mauritius and feel perfectly safe while continued on page 30 1551 Periwinkle Way I 472-7242 Lunch 113 I Happy Hour 36 I Dinner 59:30Dinner reservations suggested DINING SHOPPING COCKTAILS AWARD-WINNING BISTRO CUISINE JEWELRY, CLOTHING, BOOKS & GIFTS FINE WINES, BEERS & HAPPY HOUR MENU Live!

29 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 1, 2013 Plant SmartPepper Grassby Gerri ReavesPepper grass (Lepidium virginicum) is a widespread native wildflower found throughout Florida on roadsides, in fields, urban areas and lawns. This herb of the mustard family is also called poor-mans pepper, Virginia pepper and Virginia cress. Clusters of minute white four-petaled flowers bloom all year long on bottlebrush-like stalks. The plant grows up to three feet high from a basal rosette of leaves. Alternate deeply toothed leaves gradually narrow as they move up the stalk. Some people consider pepper grass a mere weed, but its positive attributes are many. It provides larval and adult food for several Florida butterflies such as the checkered white butterfly. The tiny disk-shaped notched fruits have a pungent taste and can be used to season food. The plant is rich in vitamin C, and the leaves or young shoots can be chopped for salads or cooked as greens. Pepper grass has many medicinal uses too, such as a treatment for liver problems and as a diuretic. A tea made from the leaves is used to treat various skin conditions. The pretty dried stalks can be used in flower arrangements. Sources: National Audubon Society Field Guide to Florida, Florida Wild Flowers and Roadside Plants by C. Ritchie Bell and Bryan J.

From page 28Birds Eye Viewdrinking and driving or, these days, texting while driving. Dodos were wiped out by humans because they had no instinctive fear of humans as a predator and they could not receive information that humans were dangerous and believe it. Therefore, they would always stand there as the humans approached and say with a stupid voice, Thats a funny looking creature on two legs. I wonder what he is going to do with that club? How can human beings be so stupid sometimes around machines like the automobile? Arent we the only species that can fly to the moon? It doesnt take a rocket scientist to figure out that cars can kill you. Our apparent stupidity occurs because many of our thoughts and feelings do not come from our ability to have intellectual thoughts; those feelings exist because our instincts thoughts that have evolved over millions of years of natural selective pressure still direct much of what we feel is the truth and reality. Basically, we are just really smart animals. If humans are ever actually going to coexist and live in a sustainable way with the other species we share this planet with, we are going to have to somehow override our gut instincts sometimes and make enlightened, intellectual decisions about the planet. If we wait for natural selection to evolve an understanding of this concept of sustainability, Im afraid we wont survive. Natural selection works too slowly. Im not saying the task will be easy, but our own survival may depend on it.

31 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 1, 2013Taking The Coastal Message To Washingtonsubmitted by Ken and Kate Gooderham, ASBPA executive directorsThe federal government always looms large in the field of coastal management, as a source of funds, a source of regulations, or a source of research to enhance the knowledge of this field. But this year Washington plays an even larger role in coastal management, as the federal response to Superstorm Sandy both in terms of money and in terms of method could potentially reshape the federal coastal landscape. The lessons learned from this unique catastrophe, and the government response to them, is a significant issue for anyone concerned about the coast anywhere in this county. Add this into the usual reasons to take the message of the coast to Washington the three Rs of research, rule-making and revenue and having a voice for the coast in DC becomes even more necessary. Thats why the American Shore & Beach Preservation Association (ASBPA) holds its annual policy conference in Washington each spring, and why this years Coastal Summit is a must-attend event for coastal advocates. Why Washington and why now? Heres a Top 10: 1. Hurricane Sandy changed the coastal landscape with a new federal focus on sustainable communities. You need to hear what this means to your community. 2. Hurricane Sandy disaster response has resulted in a $50 billion appropriations bill. The elected officials need to hear from you their constituents. Who will they listen to if they dont hear from you? 3. Our NGO coastal partners need to see us none of us can do this alone. 4. Between the polarization of Congress and the lack of Congressional adds, it is even more important to meet with agencies about funding options. 5. Beachfront property rights and their impacts coming to a beach near you? 6. The Coastal Engineering Research Board we fought for it, now what is it doing? 7. Hurricane Sandy damage assessment how did restored beaches stand up? 8. Learn how to improve proposals to the National Science Foundation for grants helps us protect beaches. 9. Environmental permitting can we coordinate better? 10. Introducing the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Coastal Engineering Certificate Program Conference topics include: Opportunities for Better Business Line Management, with Lt. Gen. Thomas P. Bostick, Deputy Chief of Staff, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (invited). Performance of U.S. restored beaches during major storms and Hurricane Sandy. Update on the RESTORE Act, with Jim Wyerman with the Environmental Defense Fund. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Coastal Engineering Certificate Program debut, with Bill Martin of the Corps Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory. The conference will also include panels on: Property rights and beachfront property ownership (regional legal issues). Hurricane Sandy damage assessment and response. Environmental coordination on beach restoration permitting. The Summit is set for Tuesday through Thursday, February 26 to 28, in Washington, D.C., with conference sessions at a center near the White House and an awards reception and advocacy meetings on the Hill.

Meet in the trolley parking lot at 8 a.m. These bird walks are open to the public and to all levels of experience. Refuge fees will apply. The Duck Stamp and Federal Senior Pass are accepted. Call Hugh Verry at 395-3798 for further details. Roseate spoonbills in the refuge Beach Prepped For Nesting Sea TurtlesLighthouse Beach was tilled on Monday afternoon to prepare it for the start of the sea turtle nesting season. It is a requirement of the State Department of Environmental Protection permits for the beach renourishment project completed at Lighthouse Beach, according to a City of Sanibel spokesperson. This work is done to ensure that the beach is not overly compacted and is of the appropriate compression to enable female sea turtles to excavate nest chambers in the beach sand to lay their eggs. Tilling took place on the San Carlos Bay side of Lighthouse Beach. The gulf side was not affected. The work was done at this time to avoid any interference with shorebird nesting season, which starts February 15 and runs until July.

35 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 1, 2013 From page 1Koresh Dance CompanyGeneral seating is $42, Loge is $47 and student tickets are $15. Koresh Twenty Years performance Benefactor Sponsor is The Ferguson Foundation and Supporter is Hazel & David Barber. In addition to the performance at BIG ARTS, Artistic Director Ronen (Roni) Koresh will visit Bat Yam Temple of the Islands at the Sanibel Congregational Church after 8 p.m. service on Friday, February 8 for a special presentation. The evening will include a video, Focus on Israel, and a discussion led by Koresh. Koresh was born and raised in Israel. He began his dance education with his mother, a folk dancer in the Yemenite tradition, and a local Tel Aviv folk dance group. Two of his earliest teachers in Israel were Alida Gera and Micha Deri. In 1983, following a three-year enlistment in the Israeli army during which he was able to continue his dance training, Koresh immigrated to the U.S. He trained at the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in New York City and in 1984, he began performing with Shimon Brauns Waves Jazz Dance Company in Philadelphia. In 1991 Koresh formed Koresh Dance Company, and quickly established an international reputation for highly technical and emotionally charged work. Fridays video and discussion will focus on how Koreshs Israeli roots have influenced his choreography. He will review recent collaborations between the Koresh Dance Company and Israeli artists Ohad Naharin and Itzik Galili. Koresh will discuss his choice to leave Israel and the current state of the arts there. Koreshs appearance for Bat Yam Temple of the Islands is free and the public is invited to attend. With bi-annual seasons in Philadelphia and performances around the country, Koresh Dance Company has received much local and national recognition. Merilyn Jackson writes in The Philadelphia Inquirer, The finale was typically turbochargedbecause when the dust settles after a Koresh concert, you must leave bedazzled. The company has performed in Spain, Turkey, Israel, South Korea, Mexico and Guatemala. The dancers of Koresh are technically superb, but even better, they are allowed to be individuals, says Wendy Perron in Dance Magazine. The Koresh Dance Company strives to be an artistic force by creating innovative and emotional dance performances, and part of their mission is to connect with new and wider audiences. Their community outreach programs include providing free arts education to underserved youth in Philadelphia. Koresh Dance Companys performance at BIG ARTS and community outreach is funded in part by a grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts. For tickets, stop by BIG ARTS, 900 Dunlop Road, or call 395-0900.

ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 1, 201338 Under The Sea Gala Raises Funds For Shell Museumby Jeff LysiakA sellout crowd gathered at The Sanctuary Golf Clubs clubhouse on Sunday evening for a fundraiser Under The Sea 2013: In An Octopuss Garden With You to benefit The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museums educational programs. Cocktails and passed hors doeuvres, a silent auction and buffet dinner started the gala, where guests were invited to come dressed in their grooviest 0s-era garb. Many attendees came clad in tie-dyed T-shirts and bell bottoms, with more than a few sporting hippie hairdos. Dan Schuyler from Lily & Co. Jewelry Gallery came dressed in a Sgt. Pepper-style costume, complete with a mop-top Beatles wig and mustache. Following dinner, a live auction included a four-hour private fishing trip courtesy of Sanibel Custom Charters, a luau for eight people courtesy of Baileys General Store and The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum Board, a sunset cruise for 49 people courtesy of Adventures In Paradise and a weeklong getaway to Cape May, New Jersey compliments of Sue Hobbs. BeatleBeat, a Beatles tribute band previously featured at Walt Disney Worlds Epcot, took the stage, entertaining the crowd with The Fab Fours best known hits including I Wanna Hold Your Hand, A Hard Days Night, She Loves You and Eight Days A Week. They were also joined on stage by Tracy and Connie Walters as winners of a live auction prize for the song Hey Jude. One of the evenings highlights was when Terry Igo sporting a shaggy wig, red leather jacket and zebra-striped pants jumped up on the stage and did his best Mick Jagger impersonation, joining the band for a rousing rendition of Honky Tonk Woman. The tune whipped the already dancing crowd into a further frenzy, with a deafening ovation acknowledging their approval of Igos performance. Tracy and Connie Walters joined BeatleBeat on stage for a rendition of Hey Jude Mark Blust, Clair Beckmann, Terry Igo, Karen Bell and Holly Maiz Sandy Moran won the $700 jackpot Clair Beckmann The Lily & Co.

She is well known on the Island for her bright and lively tropical paintings that are on display in her studio and in Island Style Gallery. Sissi is now teaching weekly art classes at The Community House. During her last two exciting years in China, she has been teaching art classes to art-loving expats from all over the world and at Concordia International/ American School in Shanghai. In a relaxed and casual atmosphere, students will learn the basic artistic concepts of: line, color, perspective, light, form, composition and color theory. The students will develop simple creative techniques that will result in exhilarating and interesting ways to express their artistic ideas, while developing their individuality and painting technique. Her preferred media is acrylics, because of its versatility. All materials will be provided. Each session is three hours of artistic creation. Two class times are offered on Wednesdays; morning class 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and afternoon class 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Classes are in progress and space is available. For more information or class registration, visit Sissis website www.sissijanku. com or call Sissi at 321-282-6332.. Stories For Grownups FridayStories For Grownups will be at The Sanibel Library this Friday, February 1, at 2 p.m. The sessions are held the first Friday of the month. The featured storytellers this week are from Periwinkle Park. That unique place on the island is a magnet for powerful people, and our five storytellers are just that, said Sid Simon, the emcee for the event. Beth Warner, a tent-living, daily gulf swimming import from Maine loves bees and grandchildren, and may have washed more windows on Sanibel than anybody else. Jane Hogg, raised in New York City in the heart of the world of theater, taught school creatively like few people I know, became a journalist and is a popular columnist here on the island, Simon said. Her husband, Don Hogg, sculptor, seafaring wanderer and local theater performer, will also be there. Chris Boesen was an elementary school teacher in Michigan, and we all know she was the teacher every parent wanted their kid to have, he noted. And then we get to listen to the colorful Alan Smith, from New York television, who knew more TV celebrities than Johnny Carson, well almost more than Johnny, but Smith does know more about life in Periwinkle Park, said Simon. They will tell stories for the first half of the show, and then Simon, professor emeritus from the University of Massachusetts, will begin to draw stories from the audience. For directions or more information, call the Sanibel Library at 472-2483. Janku in her Sanibel studio To advertise in the Island Sun Call 395-1213

ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 1, 201342 Rusty Brown Returns To Sanibel Join your friends and neighbors at The Community House on Thursday, February 28 for lunch and an entertaining one-woman performance by noted performer and storyteller Rusty Brown. Her performance, titled What Ive Learned From Witty Women, draws from the writings of favorite authors. Her show zeros in on womens lives and their take on dieting, aging, parenting, loving even how to get your man to buy a new suit. Browns performance will leave you laughing.You will be entertained by her insights: Clothes are right when they push something out, hold something in, or cover something up. Martha Stewart is crazy when she says an outdoor brunch for 60 is do-able. Some of us are married to men who dont talk much, some of us worry about being working moms, and most of us hate to try on swimsuits. From the writings of experienced women, you are sure to enjoy the sharing of wisdom and walk away with bits of knowledge and experience to take with you. This delightful event is sponsored by Sanibel Holiday. Tickets for Community House members are $20, and guests are $25. The luncheon, featuring chicken caesar salad, begins at noon, Browns performance will follow at 1 pm. Call The Community House at 472-2155 to make your reservations.

Author/entertainer Rusty Brown returns to Sanibel on February 28 Move In The Moment At BIG ARTSby Di SaggauTheres a new dance class at BIG ARTS geared to men and women of all ages. Move Your Body and Shake Your Soul, conducted by Marsha Wagner, is geared to empower people through music and dance to get in touch with various centers of energy within their body. As one member of her class said, For the first time, I feel absolutely free to be me. Wagner has been a dancer all her life and enjoys sharing her skills with others. She said, Music and dance has always come first. I want other people to be able to enjoy it, let it move you in that moment of being. We are so confined to our chairs. My class offers men and women an opportunity to explore space and move yourself with a kind of earthy feeling. Through various types of music including Gospel, blues, salsa, flamenco and several others, participants are given an opportunity through improvisational dance to move in the moment.

Its fun and playful, sexy and spiritual. It allows you to find out who you are and have fun doing it. She plans the class according to the energy centers she wants to work with so participants are able to get in touch with who they are. Comfortable clothes are recommended.

You can learn to heal the body by activating its natural healing energies and restoring energies that may be weak, blocked, disturbed, or out of balance. Combining ancient practices with contemporary scientific understanding enables application to physical, emotional issues promoting joyful living and wellness. Karen L. Semmelman, certified Eden Energy Medicine practitioner, matrimonial and trial lawyer for more than 30 years, Reiki and radionics practitioner, believer in quantum physics and owner of Semmelman Energy Center, is offering Eden Energy Medicine introductory 101 and 102 courses at The Community House.

Donna Eden, who developed the protocols used in the practice of Eden Energy Medicine, is showing that techniques from ancient healing and spiritual traditions make powerful contributions to contemporary health care. The particular type of basic Eden Energy Medicine (EEM) that Semmelman practices is that if energy is clogged, blocked or trapped, then one can expect pain, discomfort or disease that results. By unclogging the blockage, the healing commences on the energetic level. The foundation of EEM is a series of exercises that activates each of the energetic systems. The combination of these exercises is known as the five-minute routine, which assists the body in achieving a state of wellness in balance with ones energetic systems. Course 101 will be held on Wednesday, February 27. Course 101/102 will be on Saturday and Sunday, April 6 and 7. Cost is $125 per course; $225 for both courses.

ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 1, 201346 Author Gives A Gift To LibraryMargaret Mohundro, the executive director of the Sanibel Public Library, received a gift of the first book published by Sanibels newest author, Dan Perkins. His book is titled The Brotherhood of the Red Nile, A Terrorist Perspective. Mohundro said, We have an extensive collection of signed books by local authors, and Mr. Perkins new book will be a welcome addition to our historical collection. I must say that Im in line on the waiting list to get a chance to read this new book. Thrillers are one of my favorite writing styles, and from what I have seen of the interest in his book, I expect to be scared a lot. The book was the result of a course Mr. Perkins took in February 2012 at BIG ARTS on creative writing mysteries and thrillers. The story is about a new terrorist group formed in Syria that strikes an alliance with the Iranian nuclear program to modify old Soviet Union radioactive suitcase dirty bombs, making them weapons of mass destruction. The scary part of the book is the planning of the American target selection process. The cover has a quote, This book is as current as todays headlines, but scarier than tomorrows. We try to support our local authors by presenting book signings and, most important, an interactive experience between authors and the people of Sanibel, Mohundro continued. We are working with Dan Perkins to schedule a presentation and book signing here at the library in early April. The title of the book is quite thought-provoking, so it should be a fun time for all who attend. We are also looking forward to his next book, which he tells me he is also writing here on Sanibel. The library has a few copies to loan, but for those who cant wait, the book is available at all the bookstores on Sanibel. Information about the book and the author can be found www.danperkinsatsanibel.com.

They offer them at supermarkets in stores as large as asteroids. Sometimes they offer twenty, thirty, Even fifty percent off! Although my size never seems to exist. But I thought to take the discount one step higher. I want ten percent off of everything. The air I breathe, the sea, this life abundant. My consciousness. Hell, even this poem will be ten percent shorter. I wont get greedy, at least I hope I wont get greedy. You know how it goes, Asking for twenty, twenty-five, fifty Working your way toward free! Then, realizing it is free This life abundant. Charles Sobczak lives and writes on Sanibel Island. He has written several novels and a fictional memoir. His Living Sanibel a Nature Guide to Sanibel and Captiva quickly became the best-selling book on Sanibel. His latest book The Living Gulf Coast a Nature Guide to Southwest Florida won the Gold Medal President Award for best work of adult non-fiction, 2011.

47 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 1, 2013 Portraits In Printby Jane Vos Hogg Working WeaverMore than half a lifetime ago, Edie Flagg wanted to learn to weave. The nearest class, one at the Brookfield Craft Center, was a good hours drive away from her home in New Haven. No problem. She signed up for an eight-week course. When completed, she bought her own floor loom from a small California company. The $500-something purchase price was money well spent. Loom and Edie became a constant couple. But bit-by-bit, other things took priority. Marriage children raising a family working divorce a full-time teaching schedule nearly 30 years with no time to weave. All the natural bumps in this highway called life. Then, about 10 years ago, with less structured days looming on her horizon, spare time steered her to a calm diversion. Weaving! What could be more contemplative? Her floor loom gave way to something new on the market: simplifying the complexities of weaving, the easily set-up rigid heddle looms were being mass-produced. Relatively inexpensive, they were basic, perfect for beginners, but still able to produce pieces as wide as 20 inches (or much narrower, if desired). Far smaller than floor looms, these were easily maneuvered. Besides, now re-married and looking forward to places to relocate post-retirement, possibly trading winters and work for warmth, she realized the floor loom couldnt even fit into the car. The rigid heddle was pleasantly portable... which was how she came to land in Sanibel with five of them. Craft is contagious, and Edie Flagg does her best to spread the weaving bug. For starters, she taught a class at the Sanibel Senior Center, more formally known as the Center 4 Life. The course description was clear: theyd meet twice, a three-hour session each time, on successive days. Looms and materials would be provided and each student would weave a piece, six inches wide and 60 inches long. I thought the intended outcome was somewhat questionable. So much for my suspicions! The journalist in me said Check it out. I arrived in the classroom as an observer minutes after Day 1 began. There were three students, all a bit past muddled but not yet quite comfortable. Theyd browsed the various threads and chosen possibilities, color probably being the biggest consideration. Now they were ready for the next step. First, Edie introduced warping. As they handled the threads, she was encouraging, emphasizing change if you decide you dont like the way it looks. She always starts in the middle of the heddle beam because she likes the idea of spreading out only as far as you want to go. Warping is both time consuming and tedious, but as the minutes passed, I could feel a subtle shift in student attitude. Purposeful brought about a peace of its own. Quite likely, I was more surprised than the weaving three, because each one of them had actually advanced to the second step: weaving. Day 2, I entered the room at least an hour after theyd begun. Each one was almost to the end of her 60-inch piece and it was time to loosen the pieces from the beam. Learning to knot and tie the fringes was the final phase, an action that went far faster than Id imagined it would. Three newly hatched weavers, each wearing her just completed scarf... draping it tying it trying it out this way and that. With nearly an hour of scheduled time left, the teacher suggested she warp a loom hastily and then all four of them could try weaving a communal piece. Lets see what comes of it, Edie suggested. Thats when I took off, but as I looked back, I was pretty sure I saw three women recently infected with the weaving bug. W HETHER YOU LOOK WEST OR LOOK DOWN, THE VIEW IS EQUALLY SPECTACULAR.

Bank Gives To Strauss Theater Bank of the Islands recently made its latest non-profit donation through its We Love Our Islands program. The winners, Clive and Nancy Goodwin, chose BIG ARTS Herb Strauss Theater to receive the banks $400 donation. The Goodwins were spotted with a We Love Our Islands decal on their car. That won them the right to select which local non-profit cause would receive a charitable contribution from the bank. Bank of the Islands. This gift raises the total amount of donations from the program to date to $50,700. What perfect timing to remind people about the great productions like Spamalot at the Strauss Theater, said Rob Lisenbee, manager of the banks Sanibel branch. Winners Clive and Nancy Goodwin, left, with Bank of the Islands Rob Lisenbee and Strauss Theater Production Manager Bobby Logue6B ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 1, 2013Monday Night Film Series LineupBIG ARTS Film Societys everpopular Monday Night Film Series brings critically-acclaimed independent and foreign films and documentaries to Sanibel. The movie experience at BIG ARTS is more than just a film showing. A group of enthusiastic film buffs lead informed post-movie discussions, complemented by refreshments. All Monday Night Films are $8 and begin at 7 p.m. in Schein Performance Hall. Viewers will enjoy the quality of a Bluray Disc player, high-definition projection equipment, and surround sound. Assistive listening devices are available. Upcoming February Monday Night films: February 11 Romantics Anonymous (2010) France/Belgium; Not Rated. February 18 A Royal Affair (2012) Denmark; Rated R. February 25 There will be no Monday Night Film due to the BIG ARTS annual benefit. Romantics Anonymous is a clever romantic comedy directed by Jean-Pierre Amris, starring Benot Poelvoorde and Isabelle Carr. Its the story of an easilyembarrassed chocolate maker and her boss, a panic-prone chocolate company owner. Will they act on the chemistry they feel for each other? The film won the Magritte Award for Best Foreign Co-Production. Of the film, Stephen Holden writes in The New York Times, ... the tale of two pathologically shy chocolate makers who are meant for each other but are too afraid to connect is a mug of warm cocoa with marshmallow topping that produces a comfy feel-good glow. A special reception with chocolate and wine tasting, sponsored by Baileys General Store, begins at 6 p.m. A limited-number of $15 tickets includes the film and reception; the $8 ticket is for the film only. The surprise film for Monday, February 11 is the 2012 historical drama A Royal Affair. Centered on the intriguing love triangle between the insane Danish King Christian VII, his royal physician who is a man of enlightenment, and the young Queen Caroline Mathilda, A Royal Affair was nominated for both an Academy Award and a Global Globe for Best Foreign Language Film. David Rooney calls the film Gripping, sumptuous and enthralling, in The Hollywood Reporter. BIG ARTS Monday Night Film Series Sponsors Bank of the Islands, Stan & Visnja Gembicki, and Supporters Sanibel Taxi and Jerrys Foods of Sanibel.

The restaurant was filled with Sanibel/Captivans wanting to say goodbye to a good friend and neighbor.

From page 1BArbor DaySchool principal Barbara Von Harten took time to thank all parents, grandparents and guests for attending the program. She also thanked Muench, whose grandson is a third grade student, for his many years of service to the island as well as his donation of another slash pine to the schools grounds. Arbor Day is every students opportunity to give back to the future of this community and this island, said Von Harten. Theyll be able to come back to the school some day and say they planted this tree. Following movement leaders Jillian Cajigas, Jade Hedberg, Eric McCrann, Daniel Paul, Christian Menzel, Chiara Corricelli and Sophia DeCosta, the students and guests made their way to the parking area. There, an eight-foot-tall slash pine was planted with the assistance of third graders Jensen Howell, America Martinez, Caroline Waite and Matthew Ciccone. Muench even added a bucket of water to the newly-planted tree. Von Harten also thanked Berdenna Thompson, Richard Finkel, Tim Dean, the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation as well as third grade teachers Annie Franke and Emily Wells for coordinating the program. 10B ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 1, 2013 The third grade classes perform Wonders Of The Earth Poetry was read by Kenny Kouril, Kayla Nette and Johnny Jensen Jackson Sprecher and Beru Pierce read an essay titled What Is Arbor Day?

15B ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 1, 2013 deaRPharmacistExercise Improves Memory And Enhances Mood by Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: Im going through a lot right now. This year, my New Years Resolution is to exercise more, hoping to take my mind off everything. My schedule only allows me to go to the gym twice per week. Will this help me feel better, in terms of anxiety or mood? FA, New York, New York Youre among an estimated 38 percent of Americans that make a New Years resolution to either lose weight or exercise more. Thats around 125 million people. While you tighten those abs, you increase happy brain chemicals, thus enhancing feelings of a good mood and reducing anxiety. Exercising during the day improves sleep. So yes, this is the perfect time for you to commit, and I commend you for using the gym as your solution as opposed to other solutions, like the drinkable, addictive sort. To get these benefits, the CDC recommends that you get least two and a half hours of moderate exercise per week. So your question is a good one: if you only make it to the gym twice a week, are you still getting the neurological brain benefits the other five days of the week? Researchers at the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil compared brain cell (neuron) growth in rats that were either active or sedentary. Not surprisingly, the active rats show two to three times more neuron growth, plus they had better memory skills than the rats who got to rest. We all know our jeans fit better when we exercise, but how long will exercise boost brain function and mood? Dr. Bucci, an associate professor of psychology and brain science at Dartmouth, says this varies from person to person. Dont stop working out after youve achieved a size four. Researchers examined what happens to memory when exercise is suddenly halted and the results were dramatic. After just one week, all the health and memory benefits declined in the rats who had been exercising. After 10 weeks of inactivity, the previously active rats brains were almost indistinguishable from those of the sedentary rats. What does this mean for us? It means get off your butt and shake your booty. I can tell you firsthand, when I hunkered down to write my first book in 2006, I ignored my exercise regimen for six months solid. I felt it, too. I kept losing my keys, documents on the computer... I would forget what I went into the room for and stuff like that. Today, I dont hunker down, I allot time to write, as well as time to take a walk, hike, hula hoop, yoga, dance or do pilates. Something. I feel terrific and my mind is very sharp. If youre unable to exercise because of physical limitations, do one brain game per day like sudoku, scrabble or a crossword. It increases neuroplasticity allowing your brain to grow cells, reorganize and rewire itself. Simply defined neuroplasticity means: Use it or lose it. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition. Suzy Cohen is the author of The 24-Hour Pharmacist and is a registered pharmacist. To contact her, visit www. dearpharmacist.com. Got A Problem? Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: I have a friend who focuses more on seeking revenge and getting even than simply letting go and moving on. How can I help her to learn to just let it go?A: Your friend is using her anger and resentment in a mismanaged style. This type of person will seek revenge in a perceived socially acceptable behavior, especially in a work setting. Passive-aggressive behavior and acts of sarcasm (anger) are forms of underhanded behavior. People who use these forms of anger dont consciously realize that they are really giving their power away since the anger controls them. The following exercise may help her learn to recognize and manage her anger in a way that will work in her favor rather than against it. 1. Pay attention to your anger and ways you monitor it. At the end of the day, write down the events that caused you to become angry. Estimate the number of times you felt angry. 2. Learn ways to de-escalate your anger, (e.g., breathe and count to ten, exercise, walk away from the situation that is contributing to your anger, talk about it, write about it). Write down how you de-escalated. 3. Identify something you are angry about. List several things you can do to lessen the anger and write down how you can rise above it. 4. Define a situation that angered you and write down the expectation that was not met. Now shift that expectation so it becomes more realistic and acceptable. 5. Forgiveness is a way to let go of anger and heal yourself. Write down the top three persons who you think have angered you and begin to take steps to forgive so you can move on and let it go.

23B ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 1, 2013Red Sox Dinner And Auction Moves To JetBlue ParkThis years Boys & Girls Clubs of Lee Countys Evening with the Red Sox dinner and auction is moving to a new venue. This event is one that the Red Sox Foundation has supported for many years, and now that our new spring training home is complete, what better place to hold an evening with our team than at JetBlue Park, said Katie Haas, director of Florida business operations. This is just another one of the unique ways Fenway South is being utilized for the Southwest Florida community. Now in its eighth year, the evening will take place Monday, February 18, from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. at JetBlue Park at Fenway South, the Red Soxs new 106-acre spring training and player development complex, located at 11500 Daniels Parkway. For the third consecutive year, Ted Todd Insurance has signed on as the events presenting sponsor. Additional sponsors include the Red Sox Foundation, CVS Pharmacy, Coca Cola, JetBlue Airlines, Suncoast Beverage and the Crowne Plaza, the events previous host site. The evening will include a cocktail reception with complimentary beer and wine, autograph signings, silent and live auctions and dinner. Red Sox Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Sam Kennedy will serve as the evenings guest speaker. A highlight of the auction includes the Ultimate Fenway Red Sox Experience featuring a trip for four to Boston with airfare on JetBlue Airlines, three-night accommodations, seats for four at two Red Sox games and a stadium tour. Additional auction items include vacation trips, sports memorabilia and more. Last years event raised more than $100,000, which assisted the agency in serving 1,365 young people ages 6 to 18 years old. These youth rely on the Boys & Girls Clubs of Lee County to provide a safe place to explore their interests and learn valuable life skills, said Shannon Lane, director of operations for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Lee County. This cannot be accomplished without the generous support of businesses and individuals in our community. There are just too many at-risk youth out there who need the Boys & Girls Clubs to give them a safe and supporting role in their life, said Jim Larkin, general manager of the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Fort Myers and chairperson for the event. This event will help make sure there is such a place for them. Sponsorships and corporate tables are available from $1,250 to $10,000. The Red Sox will host 20 games in its second year at the state-of-the-art complex. The team begins its 2013 spring game schedule on Thursday, Feb. 21, with the traditional single-admission doubleheader against the Northeastern University Huskies and Boston College Eagles starting at 1:35 p.m. The mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs is to inspire and enable young people to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens. Membership dues are $10 per school year so that all students can have access to the programs. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Lee County relies on the philanthropic support of individuals, corporations and foundations in order to sustain and grow its services.

24B ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 1, 2013 School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, I want to send my child to a preschool. So many of them say that they will provide ample playtime. I want my child to be learning so he can be better prepared when he gets to Kindergarten. Am I missing something with this talk of play? Alicia N. Cape Coral, Florida Alicia, In the textbook Im teaching from this term, John Santrock states, Play has many functions. It increases peer relationships, releases tensions, advances intellectual development, increases exploration and increases chances of children speaking and interacting with each other. This is so true and provides the foundation for the need for children to play. The research on play is extensive and difficult to summarize in this type of article so I am providing you with a brief outline that discusses the functions of play for a childs early years. Infant Play Birth to two years of age Sensorimotor play is typical play behavior for children up to age two. Children begin by selecting objects that give them a response, such as toys that make noise or bounce. These toys typically produce smiles and giggles from infants. In turn, adults must make sure the childs toy selection includes ones that stimulate their senses and enhance their motor skill development. Between the first and second year, children begin to understand the meaning of objects and begin to incorporate this new knowledge into play. Children will also pretend objects are used for other purposes such as using a banana for a phone. This is the beginning of dramatic play. Toddler Play Ages two to four Children begin making the transition to toddlerhood around the age of two. By this age they realize one thing can stand for another and toddlers are able to imitate or imagine events in ways that do not exist. Through this fantasy or pretend play, children can examine events and relationships that are different from the original intent and begin to transform objects and actions symbolically. For example, threeand four-year-olds understand a sponge is really a sponge. They also can pretend it is a boat skiing across the lake or a basketball sliding through the net. Early School Age four to six years of age Children in preschool and early elementary grades continue to use pretend play. At this age pretend play increases receptive and expressive language. Many higher level behaviors can be seen in this pretend play as well because children must use interactive social dialogue, negotiation, role taking, script knowledge and improvisation as they play and develop their story together. A great example of this can be seen in the housekeeping or kitchen center in any preschool. Just watch and you can see a drama which matches that of any soap opera. Children also begin to show interest in group play in this stage. Group play like Hide and Seek or Ring Around the Rosie is more structured and is based more on reality than fantasy. Group play usually involves a few rules. The rules allow the child to begin developing independence yet cooperation with partners. Often early school-age games allow the children to change roles frequently so they begin to experience many perspectives. This less-structured group play provides a transition between pretend play and more structured team sports which begin in elementary grades. It is clear that play has a vital role in young childrens lives, and that its importance extends through the primary school years as well. For young children, playing is learning.

Bachelor of Science Degree Edison State College President Jeff Allbritten announced that the college is working to offer a four-year degree for $10,000. The announcement was made during the regularly scheduled Board of Trustees meeting held January 22. On average, a fouryear degree from Edison State College costs approximately $13,000. Late last year the Governor issued a challenge to create a baccalaureate degree program that would cost $10,000, said Dr. Allbritten. We have accepted his challenge and are now working to try and make it possible. Edison State College is targeting the Bachelor of Science degree in Secondary Biology Education. With this degree in mind, we are now exploring ways to find alternative funding sources to cover the difference. There is a high demand for secondary biology teachers, and this degree would be an excellent avenue to give our students an even better value while also addressing a local workforce need, said Dr. Allbritten. About the BS Program in Secondary Biology Education: The Bachelor of Science (BS) in Secondary Biology Education program is designed to prepare individuals to teach biology grades six through twelve (middle and high school). The program provides an educational pathway for students who have earned an Associate in Arts degree to include specific science and education prerequisites. Upon graduation, students will meet the mandated state teaching requirements for certification in Secondary Biology Education. The BS in Secondary Biology Education program includes courses in teaching students with English as a second language, students with exceptionalities, reading competency, classroom management, assessment and integrated approaches to teaching methodologies at the middle and high school levels. Field experience requirements are progressive in nature, building upon previous semester experiences. Students will observe teachers in the field, teach lessons through the practicum courses and complete a full-time teaching internship in their final semester. Barrier Island Title Services, Inc.

25B ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 1, 2013 Theres the old adage that when one dies, you cant take it with you, so you might as well use up whatever it is before you go. But the new estate tax law included in the 2012 American Taxpayer Relief Act (ATRA) allows you to leave your estate exemptions behind for your spouse. In other words, under the 2012 estate tax law, each of us has a $5.25 million exemption. This is generally good news, since a married couple together can shield $10.5 million of combined assets from estate tax. Unlike prior years when you had to divide your assets between the husbands name and the wifes name in order to use up both of their estate tax exemptions, there is something called portability built into the law. While portability has been around since 2010, no one knew whether it would be made more permanent. But now we have that answer. At least for now. How does portability work? Lets look at an example where the husband dies and his estate only has $2 million. The remainder of his $5.25 million exemption ($3.25 million) isnt lost so long as the surviving spouse files a timely federal estate tax return. Instead, his unused exemption transfers over to her column. If a timely federal estate tax return is not filed, however, then the husbands exemption is forever lost. You might then call the already inappropriately named American Taxpayer Relief Act (whom exactly does it relieve, I would like to know) the Estate Tax Return Preparer Relief Act -because it is now important to file estate tax returns on estates that may not rise to the level of being taxable in order to preserve the exemption. So in my example above, provided the surviving wife files an estate tax return for her husband, her exemption is now $8.5 million. (Her 5.25 million plus his unused $3.25 million.) Should she remarry, she then loses her exemption. Unless she gifts his exemption amount away before she remarries, she can use his exemption and perhaps her new spouses unused exemption, provided she survives him, too. Should we not therefore call this new law The Black Widow(er) Relief Act? A reasonable question to ask with the portability of estate tax exemptions is whether the new law does away with the traditional notion of dividing assets between husband and wife? Maybe, but its not so clear. Why would I say that? What would be the reason to divide the assets equitably? One reason is the generation-skipping tax exemption. While the estate tax exemption is portable, the generationskipping tax exemption is not. Consider the clients who wish to bequeath their assets in trust for their children and avoid estate tax inclusion in their childrens estates. It doesnt make sense to avoid taxation in the parents estates, only to have those same assets taxed when the children die. In order to maximize intergenerational planning, you still generally want to divide assets between husband and wife because the generation-skipping tax exemptions only work if the assets are divided. There may be other reasons to divide assets between husband and wife. If you want to protect assets for your spouse from their creditors or from their future divorcing spouses, then dividing assets makes sense. For those that have to worry about the state death tax because they either reside in a state that still has a lower death tax exemption, or who own real property in a state that has a death tax, dividing the assets might be necessary. It also makes sense to divide assets when you have second marriage situations with children from prior marriages and you want to ensure that your children receive the assets and amounts that you intended. But this new world of portability offers many planning opportunities. Theres going to be a lot more creativity in estate planning now that the shackles of federal estate taxation are looser. Imagining a flexible trust that benefits a variety of beneficiaries, from a surviving spouse, to educating grandchildren, to making charitable bequests, are going to be a lot easier now that the exemption amount is higher. The danger really remains, however, for those that are lured into complacency and who fail to plan, thinking that the main reason to do the planning is no longer a concern. The new income tax laws, particularly those surrounding the Medicare Surtax, are also going to become a larger concern. It just keeps getting more interesting, doesnt it? Craig R. Hersch.

Insurance Tip Occasional Rental May Be OKby Marge MeekOften, homeowners have the opportunity to rent their homes during season for a short period of time but have no intention of having their house as a rental longer term. Friends, acquaintances or referrals may ask to rent your home and why not, since for some reason, you will not be using it. The question is will your homeowners insurance cover liability for bodily injury or damage to the property? Assuming the house is rented for a week or two and, rarely, your homeowners policy would apply. The key is the rental must be rarely or occasionally. Your policy will cover the home for fire, for example, but that coverage will likely not be extended to a guest house that is separate from the main house. You probably wouldnt be covered for theft of personal property either. So, be careful who you are renting to and only rent very occasionally to keep your regular homeowners policy working for you. Otherwise, you need to have your policy rewritten to a policy that includes full rental coverage. A rental policy isnt so much different in premium; the real difference is in the coverages.

Ken KourilDirector Of Food And Beverage OperationsTween Waters Inn Island Resort has announced today the appointment of Jason Miller as the director of food and beverage Operations. Miller will oversee operations at restaurants Old Captiva House and the Crows Nest, as well as all food and beverage operations onsite at the Captiva resort. As director, Miller will manage staff employment, scheduling and training while also assisting staff. He will serve as the face of food and beverage at Tween Waters Inn, ensuring each guest has the highest quality experience possible. Miller plans to infuse his experience in improving wine lists and implementing outdoor dining, all while bringing fresh and new ideas to the food and beverage and culinary teams. The dining experience at Tween Waters Inn is already held in high regard on Captiva Island, with Old Captiva House being rated number one on TripAdvisor, and Crows Nest being rated number three, said Miller. But my goal is to raise the food and beverage standards across the board, and to make Old Captiva House and Crows Nest not only the preferred dining spots on Captiva, but Sanibel as well. A familiar face in Southwest Florida, Miller comes to Tween Waters Inn from The Sanctuary Golf Club, where he spent 12 years, five as the food and beverage director. Additionally, Miller brings his culinary operations management experience from Marriott World Center and Darden Restaurants, both based out of Orlando. Currently a resident of Sanibel Island, Miller was raised in Southwest Florida and attended University of Central Florida. He is married with two children, with whom he spends his free time. Jason Miller is not the only Jason Miller on the food and beverage team at Tween Waters Inn. Chef Jason Miller, who coincidentally is the same age and is also married and also has two children, is the executive chef at the resort.

And, all too often, its the most blandly decorated room in our home. And worse still, its probably the room most often frequented by your guests! So, why not let your imagination and creativity flow into overtime. Make a bold statement in the room. Work on creating a focal point. Its not uncommon for these small room to have no window, and lets face it, theres not much beautiful about a toilet and vanity. Here are a few ideas you might want to incorporate when considering giving this room a complete makeover. 1. Start with the vanity. Replacing a plain laminate top with a beautiful granite surface might be just the ticket. Or how about considering some of the handsome furniture pieces that are not only graciously designed but fully functional as well. They are totally designed to give a small powder room a fabulous focal point. 2. Dramatic wallpaper could certainly reduce the boxy feeling these small rooms are typically known for. Think about selecting something exciting and spectacular. Todays faux finish wall coverings come complete with embedded jewels and crystals. Just think of the drama you can create. 3. Your flooring. How about replacing that vinyl with a new laminate or tile floor. Even a multi-patterned area rug might add just the right touch to this oftused space. So how about it. Get up right now and go and look in your powder room. Could it use a little makeover or a large redo? If so, give us a call, and let us help you create a room that your guests will be unable to stop raving about. Cindy Malszycki is an interior designer on Sanibel/Captiva Islands.

28B ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 1, 2013Eden Energy MedicineThe Principles Of Energy Medicine (EEM)by Karen L. Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAMLWhat is energy medicine (EEM)? EEM is the process of balancing our bodys nine energy systems for health and healing by working with our energy as a vital living force that forms the foundation of well-being. By activating and restoring natural healing energies within these nine systems that may be weak, blocked, disturbed or out of balance, the body heals. You become the healer and the movement of energy is the medicine. This process combines ancient practices with contemporary scientific understanding, enabling application to physical or emotional issues, thus promoting joyful living and wellness. Information in these columns is based on Donna Edens first book, Energy Medicine, now available in 20 languages. It is recognized as a book of the year by U.S. Book News in the self-help category. Eden comments on energy medicine, We are required today to live in a conscious partnership with our bodys energy systems if we are to thrive. And it is easier than you might imagine to learn how to mobilize inner forces that enhance your health, empower your mind, and brighten your spirit Our subtle energy systems have defined pathways, just like our nervous systems or our circulation systems. The experiences of pain, fatigue, congestion, headaches, arthritis, insomnia or imbalance reflect stale energy. By learning to move energy, space is created and relief from symptoms begins. Energy crosses over in our bodies in figure eight patterns (just like your DNA a double helix). It requires space to move; it is dynamic and ever changing; it is electromagnetic (the magnetic pull of the earth keeps us grounded on earth); each cell has its own north-south polarity (if polarity becomes irregular, one will likely experience discomfort, pain or illness); and energy wants the body to heal and be in optimum balance (it is self-regulating). If given the correct road map, healing and vitality begin to be restored. The foundation of EEM is a set of exercises that activates the nine systems. This set of exercises is the Five Minute Routine, which assists the body in achieving a state of wellness that is in balance with our energetic systems. One of these exercises is known as the Cross-Crawl which you will learn about next week. If you have a questions for Karen, email her at ksemmelmanenergy@ gmail.com. Learn more at www.semmelmanenergy.com. EEM does not diagnose or cure illness, but working with subtle energies of the body has been shown to help many conditions. Cattle Barons Ball Exceeds Goal The 10th anniversary Cattle Barons Ball exceeded its goal and raised $315,000 Saturday night to fight cancer and provide services to Southwest Florida residents who are courageously battling and surviving the disease. The ommunity rallied to raise $315,000 for cancer research, education and services. We are going to cure cancer; Im absolutely convinced its on the horizon, said Bob Simpson, the CEO of LeeSar and a cancer survivor who co-chaired the anniversary event with his wife, Linda. When it happens, it will be a direct result of people like those in our community who supported this great event with sponsorships, volunteer work, attendance at the gala and contribution of their money. The people of Lee County are clearly committed to the fight against cancer, and were grateful for their sacrifice. The event was held January 19 at Harborside Event Center. With an attendance of 530, 120 more than last year, the Western-themed gala roped in more than $40,000 in an exciting live auction, led by volunteer auctioneer Rick Gallo, that included a two-year lease on a Chevy Camaro and a private in-home dinner for eight from Ruths Chris Steakhouse. A custom guitar by Scream Guitars brought in the highest auction bid at $5,000. Another $50,000 was donated in response to a Finish the Fight cash call challenge. Attendees were moved to contribute after watching an emotional music video celebrating survivorship that was made by One Night Rodeo, the award-winning country band that has provided the galas entertainment for the past three years. A portion of the money raised at the event will fund services for adults and children conquering cancer in Lee County, with additional proceeds going toward research to eliminate the disease and educational programs for those recently diagnosed. The event, titled Starry Nights Under a Southwest Florida Sky, also featured cowboy-themed games, a silent auction, and a gourmet meal and luscious desserts by sponsors Ruths Chris Steakhouse and Norman Love Confections. Premiere Oncology was the presenting sponsor and LeeSar, a leader in health care supply chain management, committed $25,000. Other sponsors who helped make the event a success were John and Mary Jo Boler, Med Assets, Suncoast Beverage Sales, Scanlon Automotive, Enterprise Holdings, Wells Fargo, VIP Realty, Paces Medequipment, Medtronic, McKesson, Lee Memorial Health Systems, Clive Daniel Home, Jasons Deli, Harborside Event Center, C.R.

Also on the 27th, free tracking service will be included on all Priority, Express and Standard Post (formerly called Parcel Post) as well. This years one-cent increase translates to only a few more dollars for the average residential customer. In fact, even if you mail a letter or card every single day, youll only pay $4 more for postage the entire year. At 46 cents, a postage stamp is still one of the best bargains in the United States. The Postal Service does not receive tax dollars to cover the cost of operations. Heres a brief history of first-class mail stamp prices, beginning with the $.02 stamp in 1885: 1917, $.03; 1919, $.02; 1932, $.03; 1958, $.04; 1963, $.05; 1968, $06; 1971, $08; 1974, $.10; 1975$.13; 1978, $.15; 1981, $.18 and $.20; 1985, $.22; 1988, $.25; 1991, $.29; 1995, $.33; 2001, $.34; 2002, $.37; 2006, $.39; 2007, $.41; 2008, $.42; 2009, $.44; and 2012, $.45. Since 2007 the Postal Service has issued Forever stamps, which are valid for first-class postage regardless of any price changes. Forever stamps are purchased at the current first-class postage rate and are valid forever! Nows the time to sort through all those unused stamps that have been accumulating in a box or drawer. The amount indicated on those stamps is still valid. You can use them any time. And, if you have any one-cent stamps, youre in luck because thats the amount of the increase that became effective January 27. Any combination of stamps may be used in meeting the postage requirements. The Post Office encourages you to utilize all the stamps you have. If you have any of those non-denominational A-H stamps that were issued, heres the letter, the year it was issued, and its value: A, 1978, $.15; B, 1981, $.18; C, 1981, $.20; D, 1985, $.22; E, 1988, $.25; F, 1991, $.29, G, 1994, $.32; and H, 1998, $.33. A one-cent make-up stamp (a weathervane) was also issued in 1998. February Is Love Month Your local Post Office has a variety of Hallmark Valentines cards for that special someone. Nothing says I Love You better than a hand-written card that you can keep forever. Another loving gesture would be to create a unique photo card using Cardstore.com, a partner vendor with the United States Postal Service. You can also select your card from an extensive gallery: say it in a card when whispering wont do, say just the right romantic words, or make it funny with one of 53 Cupids valentines. And dont forget to purchase Love stamps for your valentine. For information on the January 27 price change visit www.usps.com/newprices.htm.

29B ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 1, 2013Dr. DaveVital Exercises by Dr. Dave HepburnOK, its that nasty exercisolution time of year again, so... hey, how bout them Seahawks. Look doc, if elite NHL players arent exercising, why should we? Fact is, the gyms will be full of flailing figgy pudding failures and your home elliptical is now home to Skitters kitty litter box with the arms acting as perfect hangers for your XXXXXL Fruit of the Looms. Now, I could make this easy for you. Should I suggest that the best workout this year is to work out the seat of your pants on the couch, I will become your favorite doctor in the world and, as such, I will be sent boxes of chocolate covered macadamias which will force me to work out the seat of my pants. So instead, Ill suggest three different types of exercises, vital exercises that you dont necessarily think about whilst sweating to the oldies. Dont do these exercises all in one day. Alternate them, like I do, roughly one every eight weeks, between macadamias. Brain No, this does not mean more Suduko... if thats all you do. The key to true mental exercise and hence mitigating the inevitable loss of brain tissue as we age is to try and stimulate new learning. Try a new instrument this year (though should any of my neighbours start with the bagpipes, they will be neighborly throttled with the aforementioned pipes.) A new language, which for some of you might be English. A new hobby from right out of left field or left out of right field. A new computer program. Learn how to operate your cell phone for things other than cell phoning. My wife and I play Jeopardy because, though it is the same game, it works the recall/retrieval part of the computer. Alex, Ill take Media Doctors of Victoria for $800. This virile doctor has been shown to have an IQ in the 200s. Who is Sealey? Oh no nooo, not even close. Balance Watching a herd of Tai Chiers in the morning mist down by the beach, slowly waxing on and off may have you checking your waffles for quaaludes, but these folks get great health benefits. Particularly as they age. Better balance means fewer falls. Fewer falls may mean more falls, winters and the rest of the year. Falls can too often end up being fatal to the elderly faller. But should pretending to defend yourself from the Mongol Horde in slow motion with imaginary nunchucks not appeal to you, then try Yoga or Pilates, assuming you have the right yoga wear and that Chris Christie is not yogaing directly in front of you. While Tai Chi has been described as graceful meditation in motion, watching Christie may require a taste full of medication for motion... sickness. Pubococcygeals Not many of you woke this morning thinking of your pubococcygeus muscle, unless you tried that new Jane Fonda move last night, while into the Vodka chocolates. But a collapsing pelvic floor is a common and disturbing event that could be avoided with routine workouts. Kegels are the key, gal. Actually men could benefit as well, even men who havent given birth. Few people enjoy having a uterus, rectum or bladder fall out of their pelvis in Aisle 6 of Costco during a Viennese wiener demonstration. But the pelvic floor muscles, aka pubococcygeals, are an oft neglected muscle group that we seldom ask our personal trainer to help us work out. Rarely do you hear Wow, Bill, great delts, pecs and pubos. Yet it is so important for women and men of the male species not to neglect this hammock-like muscle that holds up the undercarriage of our chassis. It stretches from our tailbone to that hard bone in the front of your pelvis. These muscles are often weak and thin so finding them may take some getting used to, particularly by other riders on the bus.

30B ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 1, 2013Mom 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, We had just celebrated 35 years of marriage. My wife became ill and died within three days. It was a dreadful shock. Shortly afterward, a widow friend of ours wanted to become very friendly. She was my age and a very nice woman, but I was not interested. Six months later I started dating a super gal I had met at the gym. She was 30 years younger, and we did have lots of fun. I bought her the mink coat and the jewels she loved. We married and shortly after I realized what a fool I had made of myself. I just couldnt keep up to her lifestyle and always felt like the father among her young friends. I had married my first wife when I was only 20 and had two children by the time I was 23. I always felt I had missed a lot with too much responsibility too early. Now I am single again and would appreciate my widow friend now. What would you suggest I do? Ted Dear Ted, Id suggest you call her and, if she is available, invite her out for dinner. You may find that you are still not interested; on the other hand, maybe you may find you enjoy the company of a mature woman who enjoys doing the same things as you in a senior lifestyle. You also may find that she is really not interested in you. Many of my friends say they miss having someone to watch TV with or having a companion on a cruise or traveling. Many are not interested in remarriage but are lonely and are tired of always being with the gals. Some are not the least bit interested in remarriage because they do not want to end up being a nurse for a sick old man. Lizzie Dear Ted, What were you thinking? I understand there are individuals who are mentally and emotionally younger than their chronological years, but 30 years difference! Other than both being human, what did you folks have in common? You are at an extreme advantage being an older single male. I do not know the exact figures, but there are at least five older single females for every one older single male. Take the time to understand what you want from a relationship. Once you know that, you will be in a better position to know where to meet the individuals you may want to share your life. Do not be surprised if many women do not want to marry. True to my discussions with older single women, they want companionship and nothing more. The family, financial and interpersonal issues are many and too complex to be bothered with marriage. Pryce Lizzie and Pryces email address is momandmeaging@hotmail.com.
