Juan Ponce de Leon landed in the general area of Sanibel and made contact with the indigenous people, the Calusa. The Calusa and their origins are not well understood, even today. Estimates of their population at the time of the Spanish landing range from 10,000 to several times that number. The Calusa have been dubbed The Shell People, and huge mounded waste piles of seashells, known as middens, can be found on the sites they inhabited throughout coastal Southwest Florida. Their population was decimated first by the Spanish explorers and later by European diseases. The few remaining families fled to Cuba, where they were assimilated into the general population and became extinct. Our museum is fortunate to have Calusa artifacts discovered at the Wightman Dig on Captiva plus an olive jar from a Spanish shipwreck. These are on display in the Rutland House, said Museum Manager Emilie Alfino. The day begins with artist Luc Century introducing his ornament etched with a Calusa dolphin designed exclusively for the museum. He will be at the museum that day to speak and sign the ornament boxes.

According to Paul Garvey, executive director of the Captiva Civic Association, the pristine 2007 Ford XLT front-wheel drive Escape has only 15,200 miles on it. He said the vehicle, donated by Gaye and Jim Pigott, has a manufacturers suggested retail price of $24,880. It features: Green titanium metallic exterior paint Tan leather trim interior Anti-lock brakes A three-liter Duratec V6 engine 16-inch aluminum wheels A towing package Front-end fog lamps This XLT model has all of the extra features you could want, Garvey added. It is a one-owner car that has been garaged the whole time on Captiva. That one owner is Captivan Gaye Pigott, who, along with her husband, Jim, generously donated the vehicle. Jack Cunningham drives the vehicle a few blocks from his home to the Captiva Post Office, where it is often displayed on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings when 2013 ABC Celebration T-shirts are sold. It drives like new, the civic association president said. And it even still has a new car smell to it. The interior looks like no one ever sat in it. The car will be one of more than a dozen items that auctioneer Tommy Williams will have up for bid at the 2013 ABC Celebration event, Thursday, March 7, at 6 p.m., at The Sanctuary Golf Club on Sanibel. Garvey said invitations are being mailed for the gala event, which includes a gourmet dinner with an open bar and musical entertainment. Tickets for the dinner and auction are $90 per person. Anyone wishing to request an invitation can call the Captiva Civic Association offices at 472-2111. This year, proceeds will go toward remodeling and expanding the Captiva Community Center. That project includes a major increase in the size of the meeting hall, new headquarters and a museum for the Captiva Historical Society, expanded space for Lee Countys Captiva Memorial Library branch, a new roof and renovation of housing for the resident Captiva Sheriffs deputy and family.

3 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 8, 2013 SCCF Annual Open House Is February18February 18 marks the Sanibel Captiva Conservation Foundations 35th annual open house. It is also Presidents Day, a school holiday. From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., SCCFs Nature Center will have its doors and trails wide open. At 1 pm, Mark Bird Westall will give an update on the islands eagles. Starting at 11 a.m., there will a special marine exhibit with some of the hidden creatures of the sea grasses and shallow bays that hug the north and western shores of Sanibel and Captiva. Marine biologists will demonstrate some of the newest technology now available to anyone with a smart phone or Internet connection. When the local TV stations report the wind blowing at less than five miles an hour and you see white caps, you know their weather station is not looking at the same place you are. Three of SCCFs RECON units are now equipped with weather stations. Get the real wind speed and direction a half mile off the Sanibel Lighthouse or in the intracoastal near Redfish Pass. Staff will be on hand to help you get quick links to this vital information for any boater or avid sheller. SCCF herpetologist and sea turtle and bird biologists will have special handson exhibits including some of the more friendly snakes that can be found in this area. Childrens crafts and SCCFs traditional hot dogs and lemonade will be available. Chefs Wally and John bring almost 20 years of experience to the grill and Joan, ever stalwart, takes on the task of chopping the onions. At 11:45 a.m., the 26th annual Nature Sounds Contest will be open for your best hoot, cackle, moo and tweet. There are age categories for the children. Last year it was not just any rooster, it was a great imitation of a Rhode Island Red that brought out the laughter. For over 45 years SCCF has been preserving coastal habitat and aquatic resources. After its first 10 years of land acquisition, members decided it was time branch out and invest some its resources into education and creating a native plant nursery. Since then the Nature Center has welcomed countless residents and visitors to learn more about the abundant wildlife and unique habitats of Sanibel and Captiva. SCCF is at 3333 Sanibel-Captiva Road.

Browns performance, 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. Among her many insights: Clothes are right when they push something out, hold something in, or cover something up; and Martha Stewart is crazy when she says an outdoor brunch for 60 is doable. From the writings of experienced women we learn that 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. This event is being sponsored by Sanibel Holiday. The Community House, 2175 Periwinkle Way. Tickets for members are $20, guests $25. Luncheon, featuring chicken Caesar salad, begins at noon, with Browns performance to follow at 1 p.m. Call The Community House at 4722155 to make reservations. Author/entertainer Rusty Brown Returns to Sanibel The Community House Seeks Volunteers For Busy SeasonThe Community House is entering the second half of its season with a line-up of events scheduled for February, March and April. In February the house will be the scene for the 76th annual Sanibel Shell Festival, a Wedding House Party and a Rusty Brown one-woman show ( What Ive Learned From Witty Women). In March it will host a Swamp House Party and another one-woman show performed by actress Joanna Olsen ( Wallis-Simpson Royal Obsession). In April it will feature a Soul and R&B House Party. The house will also be the setting for its usual busy schedule of club meetings, classes and service organization fundraisers, including the Rotary Arts & Crafts Fair, the Chamber of Commerce Expo, the Kiwanis Spaghetti Dinner and the Lions Club Arts & Crafts Festival.

ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 8, 20136 Art League Paints For FISHMembers of the Sanibel-Captiva Art League (SCAL) are gearing up for another art display to benefit FISH of Sanibel, Inc. (Friends In Service Here). Over the past few weeks, members of SCAL have been working hard developing their creative pieces of art. Artists are challenged to use a Baileys General Store green recycle grocery bag as their canvas, and in past years have created some wonderful artistic creations. The bags will be collected at a meeting of the Sanibel-Captiva Art League to be held on February 13 at The Community House at 9 a.m. The art league will be hosting the Art Council of Southwest Florida for this meeting when the entries will be viewed for the first time. Under the coordination this year of Pat Baker of the Sanibel-Captiva Art League, the finished pieces of artwork will go on display for several weeks at Baileys General Store. Members of the community will be encouraged to bid on their favorite entries and the proceeds from the silent auction will go to the FISH organization. From left: Maggie Goldsmith, FISH director of operations., Maggi Feiner, executive director of FISH, Pat Smart, San-Cap Art League president, Pat Baker, SCAL project chair Causeway Park Gets ADALee County Parks & Recreation has made improvements to Sanibel Causeway Island A the island along the popular causeway that is closest to the bridge so people who use wheelchairs can better enjoy the beach. The east end of Island A now has a Mobi-Mat, which is a roll-out surface that makes beaches accessible to people in wheelchairs. An ADA-accessible picnic table and landscape enhancements also went into the area, which is known as Petes Point, named for devoted Lee County Parks & Recreation staffer Pete Schroat, who died unexpectedly in 2011. The cost of the Moby-Mat was defrayed thanks to a donation from park patron Brad Piper of Fort Myers, who is fond of Petes Point and who uses a wheelchair. Im originally from Illinois and so was Pete, and we struck up conversation when Id see him out there working on the area. That became my favorite spot to go, Piper said. Schroat was a senior maintenance specialist for the department. For more information about the Causeway beach or other beaches, visit www.leeparks.org.

Seven years later, she realized her dream thanks to CHR. After moving from Syracuse, New York in 2002, Alfino worked on the mainland until she was hired in 2005 as a reporter to cover Sanibel City Hall. Unable to afford rental rates on the island, she commuted daily from North Fort Myers. Even when she became executive director of PURRE (People United to Restore our Rivers and Estuaries) in 2007, she still had the long commute. Finally, in 2009, Alfino qualified for CHRs new LEO (Limited Equity Ownership) program. She bought one of CHRs homes, and quickly became the President of the LEO Homeowners Association. Once she lived on Sanibel, job opportunities opened up. As a history buff, she was thrilled to become the manager of Sanibels Historical Museum and Village in December 2011 and inherit the office Francis Bailey had occupied for many years in the old Baileys General Store. She was even more thrilled when Francis asked her to help him write his biography, a labor of love which will be published later this year. Alfino has good reason to be grateful to CHRs Coastal & Island Community Land Trust. Buying a home on Sanibel which she could never have done without CHRs help has changed her life. Not only does she have a wonderful house, plus the job of her dreams, she can now participate in our community as only island residents can. Alex Werner, President of the Sanibel Historical Museum, said, As an amateur historian whos lived on Sanibel for many years, I know things have changed dramatically on the island since it was first homesteaded in the 1880s. But one thing has not changed, and I hope it never will the caring nature of our community, neighbors looking out for neighbors. CHR exemplifies this concept, and its affordable housing program makes it possible for the museum to utilize the many talents and interests of key employees and docent volunteers to carry out our mission. CHR is a non-profit organization that partners with the City of Sanibel to provide affordable housing for families and individuals who work in and/or serve the community of Sanibel. Today, CHR administers housing for 150 island residents in 10 rental complexes plus 14 limited equity ownership homes throughout Sanibel, thus facilitating local workforce for island businesses and ensuring economic diversity in our community. CHR will hold their first-ever fundraiser on Saturday, February 9. For more information, stop by the CHR office, located at 2401 Library Way, or call 4721189.

Mayor Kevin Ruane laid out a plan to the council on Tuesday to tackle what he called one of the more difficult issues we have ever had to deal with. Council has pledged to help island businesses. Last year it set this mission: To establish and maintain a vibrant and healthy commercial district, consistent with the Sanibel Plan, that provides for the needs and services of Sanibels residents and visitors. But thats easier said than done, given the citys strict building and development codes. Setbacks and other building restrictions render many properties, especially along Palm Ridge Road, virtually ineligible for major remodeling or reconstruction. However, both city officials and members of the community are cautious about making changes to the land development code, which is credited with keeping the island as pristine and unspoiled as it is. Councilman Marty Harrity said the word to use was not change but improve. But he added, We can come up with the greatest ordinances in the world but if the property owners dont want to do anything Ruane says he wants to limit the first workshop to four hours and wants the city manager to set it up it for as soon as the councils schedule allows. The council voted unanimously for that action, with Councilman Jim Jennings absent due to illness. Council Nixes Idea To Increase Sidewalk Salesby Anne MitchellWell, it was a nice idea but Sanibel merchants dont want more sidewalk sales than they already have. The city council had supported the idea as a way to help businesses, but on Tuesday it shelved a plan to allow merchants to hold almost twice as many sidewalk sales each year, after hearing from the chamber of commerce and a spokesperson for the operator of a large number of shopping centers on the island.Under the proposal, retailers and restaurants that sell non-food merchandise would have been able to have sidewalk sales on 67 days a year currently its 37.Barbara Harrington, representing RLR, which owns 38 commercial rental units, some weeks ago told the planning commission that the islands small businesses operate on low profit margins, which shrink even further when they discount their merchandise for sales. She said she prefers rules that dont make us look like a discount district. And on Tuesday, Ric Base, president of the Sanibel-Captiva Chamber of Commerce, told the council that his government affairs committee had determined we were happy with the status quo. Island Kids To Play Babe Ruth League Baseballby Anne MitchellSanibel City Council on Tuesday gave local youngsters the go-ahead to play ball! in a new baseball academy. The council unanimously approved a Babe Ruth Baseball League proposal for developing The Sanibel Baseball Academy. The academy will operate at the Sanibel ballfields adjoining the school and city recreation center. Proposing the project was local attorney and coach Charles Phoenix. The academy will start off with a trial period of nine months, after which both sides will be able to evaluate its progress. To establish it as an independent program, City Manager Judie Zimomra asked that the organizers of the not-forprofit league pay a minimal sum. Mayor Kevin Ruane suggested $50 and offered to donate the cost, saying he was certainly in favor of doing this. Councilman Doug Congress said as a father of three, I have driven a lot of miles off island so my kids could play competitive sports, he was all for it. It will keep kids on the island, he added. 2242 Periwinkle Way, Unit 1 Sanibel Island, FL 33957(239) 472-6868www.normzeiglers yshop.comHours: Monday-Saturday 9-5 Sunday 11-4Ad typos not valid.

A graduate of Yale University, he served as a Naval fighter pilot in World War II. After the war, he pursued a career in fashion illustration and fine art in New York City. Betty B. Finley passed away at her summer home on Lake George on July 2, 2012. After graduating from Mills College, she went to work for IBM in New York City, where she met Sherwood. After raising two children, Betty returned to work as a high school math teacher until the couple retired to their Florida residence on Sanibel Island in 1975. Both Sherwood and Betty enjoyed many years of involvement with the islands nature conservation efforts. During one period of extreme coastal erosion, Betty spear-headed a landmark decision, which required EPA, state and local government agencies to permit a major beach re-nourishment project to save residents homes. And in the early days of Gulf Pines, Sherwood and other members of the neighborhood worked to landscape and plant the entry and communal areas. Both Betty and Sherwood worked for many years as guides and supporters of the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation, and were also supporters of CROW, an island-based organization for the care and rehabilitation of wildlife. In addition, they pursued a life-long love of art. They both studied ceramics and made pottery at their studio in Gulf Pines. Sherwood taught art appreciation classes at his studio, where he continued to paint, draw and to make mobiles until shortly before his death. In 1996, BIG ARTS hosted the first retrospective of Sherwoods artwork. They are survived by their children, Michael and Sandy Finley, and their granddaughter, Harriet Alexander. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, February 23 at 1 p.m. in the Sanctuary of the Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ, with a reception to follow.

14 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 8, 2013 Mardi Gras ServicesThe Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ will be marking the last Sunday before the Lenten season with two special celebrative services in the spirit of Mardi Gras. The services will be held at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. on Transfiguration Sunday, February 10, at the church, 2050 Periwinkle Way. Both services will feature the Blue Dirt Dixieland Jazz Band as well as balloons and beads. This is our second time celebrating Mardi Gras Sunday with the Blue Dirt Dixieland Band. Their energetic sound gave a special boost to the morning, notes Senior Pastor John Danner. In many parts of the world, the days or weeks before Ash Wednesday, the start of Lent, are observed as festive times, most notably in New Orleans, where Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday) is marked by parades and parties. Mardi Gras was a time for cleaning out all the fats before the Lenten time of fasting, hence the name, Fat Tuesday. The Blue Dirt Dixieland Jazz Band is a traditional New Orleans-style band made up of musicians from Southwest Florida. The players include: Phil Blanchette, trumpet; Dave Killkelly, clarinet; Howard Bacon, trombone; Judy Harrington, piano; Dave Thorton, tuba; Wes English, banjo; and Tom Cooley, drums. We play up-beat, feel good music, notes tuba player Dave Thorton. We like one another; we like to play together. The bands name comes from a term used for especially fine soil in the Deep South, said to be so palatable that it is sometimes eaten like candy. The public is invited to attend either service. For more information visit www.sanibelucc.org or call the church office at 472-0497. Blue Dirt Dixie and Jazz Band Program To Feature Madeleine AlbrightDue to popular demand, Temple Bat Yam and the Sanibel Congregational Church will once again jointly sponsor a video screening Live From New Yorks 92nd Street Y. The program will take place in Fellowship Hall of the Congregational Church at 2050 Periwinkle Way on Sunday, February 17 at 7 p.m. This video will feature an interview with Madeleine Albright, former U.S. Secretary of State. Dr. Albright, a Czech-born refugee, became the first woman ever to hold the post of United States Secretary of State. She served from January 1997 to January 2001 in President Bill Clintons second administration, after having been United States Representative to the United Nations starting in 1991. She was an active participant in some of the most dramatic events in U.S. history from the pursuit of peace in the Middle East to NATOs humanitarian intervention in Kosovo. Dr. Albright has written a memoir in which she shares her remarkable story and provides an insiders view of world affairs during a period of unprecedented turbulence. The event will include a Q & A period and refeshments. An $8 donation is suggested to cover the cost of the program.

ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 8, 201318 ANTHONY ANK MALECHAA Celebration of the Life of Anthony Ank Malecha will be held on Saturday, February 9, 2013 from 12 to 4 p.m. at the American Legion of Sanibel Island. His daughters, along with family and friends, invite everyone that knew him to join them.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 studying 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, Anthony 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, along with his brother Ken, he formed their contracting business RAM.

21 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 8, 2013 Birds Eye ViewAnother Success Story?by Mark Bird WestallWell, it looks like the federal government will once again claim that an endangered species is doing better in a humanoriented world. In December of last year, Dan Ashe, Director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, announced that his agency wants to declassify (they call it reclassify) the wood stork from endangered to threatened. His justification for this change in status is because in the 1970s, the wood stork had declined to about 5,000 nesting pairs (mostly in Central and South Florida) from an estimated 20,000 pairs in the 1930s. Consequently, in 1984, the Fish and Wildlife Service had put the species on the endangered species list and happily, by 2009, wood stork numbers had rebounded back to 12,000 nesting pairs. Also, their breeding range had expanded into North Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and as far north as North Carolina. Sounds like a success story, right? Time for (re)classification. Maybe not so fast. If you want to find a law that protects natural resources in this country that is the most disliked, that law would be the Endangered Species Act. This is because those with the real power in this country and quite a few of the rest of us cannot understand why human interests and priorities should take second fiddle to the survival of species that nobody really cares about. What? What do you mean nobody cares about endangered species!?! I suggest that the reason endangered species have so little political support in this country is because most of our endangered species are species we dont shoot; they are almost always non-game species. When I was a kid growing up, my dad gave me my first insight into this phenomenon when he told me, If you cant eat it or hunt with it, what good is it? (He never has understood what I am all about.) Now, you might think that my dads philosophy was just an old farmers mentality or pioneer ethic, but I think that same perception of the value of wildlife is why our government allows some species to reach endangered status while ensuring others survive. I shock people when I tell them that if we really wanted to increase the odds of manatee survival, we should probably hunt them! Sounds like I am crazy, doesnt it? Well, it wouldnt be the first time Ive been called that. I wouldnt really promote that we hunt the manatee. But if we did, I can almost guarantee that the controversy about speed limits on motor boats would virtually disappear if we hunted the manatee; or at least, it had the potential to become a hunted species. Not only would the government feel less guilty implementing speed limits everywhere manatees were found, but even the fisherman could understand that they had to slow down because other humans wanted to hunt them. As it is, they find it difficult to understand why they have to slow down since the manatees only value rides on the fact that animal-lovers think they are so ugly, theyre cute. Originally, there was no management of our wildlife resources in this country. The belief was that wildlife would always be there for us to utilize. And so the hunters hunted into extinction species like the passenger pigeon and almost wiped out the bison. But eventually, early conservationists like J.N. Ding Darling and Aldo Leopold realized that if hunters were not regulated, North America would become a virtual biological wasteland. The animals we hunted for commercial and recreational purposes were perceived to have value and, therefore, needed to be managed for use by future generations. Thus, the original use of the duck stamp came into being. And that philosophy is the reason why many people from up north today believe that most wildlife is doing just fine when they say, Why, we have white-tailed deer coming out of our ears! Canadian Geese are everywhere! Wild turkeys are coming back! Why, we even have black bears coming through our neighborhoods! Those are all game species. The value of hunted species and the need for serious management was particularly realized in Florida concerning the American alligator. Hunted for its hide and meat, the species became critically endangered and was headed for extinction by the 1960s. But because of its commercial value and resulting management, the alligator has made an unprecedented recovery in the state, with an estimated population of 1.3 million in the year 2012. Think how many people want an alligator swimming around the lake in their backyard (even many who live in environmentally-friendly communities like Sanibel dont want those animals there). But the State of Florida actually manages alligators to breed in our neighborhoods. No matter how much people complain about a gator, the state will not send out a trapper until the animal is old enough to have a marketable hide, which also means that he has, hopefully, bred in that residential pond for a few years before he is harvested. That way the alligator species can be continued on page 41 Physical Therapy, Massage Therapy & Pilates Phone # 239-395-5858 Administrative Of ces & Classrooms Phone # 239-472-9700 Conveniently located on Periwinkle Way across from Sanibel Community Park Conveniently located on Periwinkle Way across from Sanibel Community Park

This highly irreverent parody was lovingly ripped off from the 1974 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail. The original 2005 Broadway production was nominated for 14 Tony Awards and won three, including the Tony for Best Musical. The story follows the adventures of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table on their quest to discover the Holy Grail. The history of the early Middle Ages and the history of American show business become comically intertwined. Add gratuitous tap dancing, pointless songs about songs, dreadful puns with rude Frenchmen and you have a musical glorified in its own goofiness. This production stars Jason Loete as King Arthur, John Ramsey as Sir Robin, Matthew Schmidt as Sir Lancelot and Elizabeth Urbancyk as The Lady of the Lake. Local favorites Robby May, Miguel Cintron and Trey Compton also return to Herb Strauss Theater to deliver the laughs of this international hit comedy. Bobby Logue, Production Manager of the Herb Strauss Theater said, This is the largest cast 14 actors weve ever assembled on this stage. There are about 150 complete costumes. Each of our six ensemble members alone has about 15 different looks. Several play roles of both genders, which always gets a lot of laughs. Performances of Monty Pythons Spamalot are 8 p.m. Monday to Saturday, through February 16, and a matine 2 p.m. on February 6. Tickets are $42, children 17 and Under $20. Herb Strauss Theaters season continues with The Marvelous Wonderettes (February 22 March 23), Charles Lindbergh: The Lone Eagle (February 24 March 10), and Fully Committed (March 29 April 27). Monty Pythons Spamalot is supported by Herb Strauss Theater Season Sponsor The Sanibel Captiva Trust Company and Show Sponsors Tween Waters Inn and The Jacaranda. The only professional theater on Sanibel, Herb Strauss Theater is located at 2200 Periwinkle Way.

The 2.5-hour adventure begins by locking through the W.P. Franklin Lock in Olga. Heading east toward Alva, passengers will enter the historic bends of the river and revisit the activities of the pioneers who traveled the same river to find paradise. Stories of the settlements and their adventures are blended with an understanding of the rivers oxbows, the wild creatures that call it home and the challenges the river faces. The tour is guided by Rae Ann Wessel, a river researcher, long-time river advocate, historian and SCCF Natural Resource Policy Director. The vessel is the stable and spacious 47-passenger Manatee Rover pontoon boat that features daily manatee tours. All seats have a great view for taking photographs and bird watching.

Lee County has more than 20 artificial reef sites made up of materials like old vessels, concrete pilings, and even radio towers. All of this effort goes to supporting the local fishing industry. Campbell is now creating sonar images of each reef, with a towfish sonar resulting in images similar to aerial photography. Last summer, whale sharks were spotted off a new reef created by the sinking of the USS Mohawk and endangered Kemps ridley sea turtles were tracked around the reefs after red tide ran them out of the bay. On Friday, February 15, see those images at the SCCF Nature Center and learn more about Lee Countys artificial reefs. The program begins at 10 a.m. For more information, call 472-2329 or visit www.sccf.org. Divers visit an artificial reef, abundant with marine life Birding At The Preserves On the second and fourth Mondays of the month experienced birders lead tours at two island preserves: The Community Park (Mariposa) Trail on city-owned land and Sanibel Gardens Preserves, jointly owned and managed by SanibelCaptiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) and the City of Sanibel.

ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 8, 201330 Persistence Pays Off Big Timeby Capt. Matt MitchellFinally, a cold front came through, dropping our morning low temperatures into the low 50s for the week. Although Im not a fan at all of the cold, after a balmy warm winter, this is much needed for our fishing. The way above average warm winter so far has had our fish tricked into an almost springlike pattern and really has them spread out in both spring and winter haunts. A week or more of this typical Southwest Florida winter weather will put the fish where they should be and hopefully making them much easier to locate and catch than has been the case this past month. This started to prove true out on the water this week Our mixed bag winter fishing continued, with variety being the word of the week. Sheltered creek fishing really lit up with the cold blast. Trips this week produced more and bigger sheepshead than we have seen so far this winter. Small creeks in the south end of Matlacha Pass and the mouth of the river held good numbers of big snook mixed in with the schools of three-pound-plus sheepshead. The crystal clear water at this end of our region made spotting fish from the tower a great way to locate and targe good numbers, although catching these big laidup snook was tough to say the least. Sight-fishing for the schools of sheepshead was a great option to bend the rod and go home with dinner after trying to stick it out for very few snook bites. In this clear water, free lining a shrimp was the best presentation for these sheepshead. With the water so clear, I even down-sized my usual 30-pound leader to 20-pound, which seemed to help. A long-shanked #2 hook hidden inside a live shrimp caught sheepshead as big as five pounds. Generally, sheepshead fishing does not excite me, but in these fast-moving tidal creeks on light tackle, these fish make for fastpaced action and a good fight. Look for these sheepshead schools laid out from the mangroves in the middle of the channels as they hang out over the oyster and shell bottom. Strong winds most days made flats fishing for trout tough. The few quality trout I did catch during a normal days charter came while working deep channels within close proximity of grass flats during the lowest tide periods. The trout, though not our target species, were all part of a mixed bag. Big live shrimp drifted along the bottom on a jig head caught a few 20-inch-plus trout, but it was far from a consistent bite. The clear water we will experience all month will really fire off the big trout bite once the winds lay down. Look for some of the best and biggest trout action of the year to be out on the shallow flats during sunny, calm conditions. The big fish of the week on my boat was caught right after the cold front while mixed-bag-fishing the Chino Island Channel. Joyce Danforth of Minnesota caught a snook which bested her husband Bobs personal best 36-inch, 15-pound snook of several years ago. Joyces 17-pound, 37-inch snook ate a jumbo live shrimp under a deep mangrove overhang on the first cast after we pulled up to the spot. The big snook put up quite the battle, which included a few dragscreaming runs back towards the trees, one jump all the way out of the water and a few big head shakes. Joyce did an awesome job to keep the fish somewhat under control and win this fight. Once it was boatside, I carefully brought the fat female snook onboard for a few quick pictures. After a minute or so of fully reviving the prize fish, we all watched her swim off unharmed. We had struggled a little bit for action most of the trip due to being on the back side of a strong cold front, so this one big fish really made this trip. Persistence and hard work had paid off. Not only had we reached our goal of getting enough fish filets for the four anglers to eat lunch at the Lazy Flamingo after the trip, but Joyce had landed one very impressive and memorable snook. Way to get it done, Joyce!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.

With a nine-foot wingspan, it is one of the largest birds in North America. While their plumage is white, their black flight feathers are visible when their wings are extended. Unlike the more common brown pelican (Pelecanus occidentalis), the white pelican does not dive into the water for its food. It floats on the surface and scoops fish and water into its distensible gular (throat) pouch. It then holds its heads up to drain out the water, allowing the bird to swallow the fish. Large flocks of white pelicans can be seen on Fort Myers Beach and nearby St. James City fishing together, moving in a circle to herd the fish toward the center. He arrived with his mouth open, gasping desperately for air, said Dr. Heather. Radiographs confirmed signs of wing damage caused by a possible predator attack. We put an IV catheter in because he was depressed and hes been on CRI (continous rate infusion) fluids to treat his dehydration, noted Dr. Aundria. Supportive care includes being tube fed Piscivore Care, a formula designed to meet the metabolic needs of critically ill fish-eating seabirds. He is also receiving antibiotics, a nonsteroidal antiinflammatory and pain medication for his bruised wing. His breathing difficulties concerned Dr. Heather greatly. I know hes a candidate for Asper, she said, referring to Aspergillosis, a respiratory infection that can result from immune suppression related to a concurrent disease, malnutrition and stress. It is commonly seen in pet birds, but exposure to the spores can also sicken humans. While blood tests indicated that his white cell count is normal, Dr. Heather added, I still feel like hes at risk for Asper and I am monitoring him very closely. In order to be certain, the clinic would need to send blood samples to the University of Miami which is very costly. The Aspergillosis fungus is all around us, said Dr. Heather, but what is it that prevents us from getting it? A good immune system. Some birds and humans can be exposed to large amounts of Aspergillosis, but if they have a healthy immune system, their bodies will produce a sufficient antibody response and therefore ward off the disease. If you would like to help this beautiful and rare migratory bird on his road to recovery, go to CROWs website and make a small donation to patient #0142. CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Inc.) is a non-profit wildlife hospital providing veterinary care for native and migratory wildlife from our local area.

In the afternoon, Karen Nelson of the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation, a Calusa enthusiast and board member of the Southwest Florida Archeological Society, will speak about Calusa mound exploration. While editing the San-Cap Islander some years ago, Nelson discovered the Calusa through an Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) tour to Mound Key and a Captiva Cruises tour to Pineland. She organized the 2004 CalusaFest on Sanibel, where archaeologist Bill Marquardt introduced his book The Calusa and Their Legacy. Nelson is presently the communications coordinator for SCCF and is doing research for a novel about the Spanish and the Calusa in the 1560s.

Under Siegels lead, The West End String Quartet and percussionist Frank Donaldson make up the Chamber Blues band. Chamber Blues is a juxtaposition of classical and blues flavors, said Siegel. I consider jazz to be a blend of classical and blues and I think George Gershwin certainly blended the forms in a beautiful way. With jazz, for instance, the blues seem to disappear into the classical and vice versa, turning up a third form called jazz. Siegel is internationally-renowned as a blues harmonica master, composer, pianist and singer/songwriter. He has written and performed works for the National Symphony Orchestra and the San Francisco Symphony, and his music has been featured on several television series. His Chamber Blues Band earned a spot in 1998 on Billboards Editors Top 10 Picks of the Year list. He is the recent winner of a Readers Digest award for chamber music and the Illinois Arts Council Fellowship Award for Music Composition. Bill Kohlhaase of The Los Angeles Times describes Siegels Chamber Blues as, A genuine hybrid complex clever and ambitious, and the Pioneer Press declares the groups sound to be, A new form of music vital and compelling astonishing. Joining Siegel for this performance is singer/songwriter and folk musician Matthew Santos, who earned a Grammy Award nomination in 2008 for Superstar, a musical collaboration with Lupe Fiasco. General seating is $42, loge seats are $47 and student admission is $15.

Utilizing his own photos, Connolly will describe a remarkable trip with upclose views of many of Africas birds and mammals Namibia, in the dry southwestern corner of Africa, plays host to all three of Southern Africas great ecosystems: the Karoo in the south, the Kalahari in the east, and the driest of the three, the Namib, sprawling along the west coast. So, its not surprising that Namibia has some of the worlds best desert birding. Add the teak woodlands and riparian habitats of the Caprivi Strip and the waterways of Botswanas Okavango Delta, the worlds largest oasis, you have the makings of a fabulously diverse birding trip. Bustards, francolins, cuckoos, bee-eaters, rollers, sunbirds and birds of prey are all well represented. Connolly and his wife Janet opened The Audubon Shop in Madison, Connecticut in 1986, a mile from the famed Hammonasset State Park, becoming the states first birding store. The shop specializes in optics, international birding field guides, wildlife art and backyard birding stations. In the mid-90s, Connolly was invited to join the Swarovski Optik advisory committee for product improvement. The most stunning product to emerge from those meetings was the venerable EL binoculars, which became one of the best selling birding binoculars in the high end market. In 1996, the Connollys organized their first international birding trip to Costa Rica with customers from their shop. Since then, Connolly has conducted 31 international birding trips to Central and South America as well as to the African continent. He is past president of the Menunkatuck Audubon Society and has served several terms on the board of the Connecticut Ornithological Association. This is the seventh of nine Sanibel-Captiva Audubon lectures which are held on Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. at The Sanibel Community House, 2173 Periwinkle Way. As always, all are welcome to attend. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and parking is available at The Community House as well as across Periwinkle Way in the Herb Strauss Theater parking area.

Community Theater Play ReadingBIG ARTS launched a program for community theater and play readings of works by playwrights in Florida. All readings will feature local volunteer talent both onstage and backstage, there will be a talk-back after each reading. At 7 p.m. on Sunday, February 17 at BIG ARTS Schein Performance Hall, Community Players will read The Growers by Kris Bauske, a drama set during World War II. The play reading will be directed by Robert Runck. The Growers is published by Play It Again, owned by Leon Embry, past president of Samuel French, Inc. Bauske is currently developing the screen adaptation of this stage play. Set in 1944, the play is the story of American teenager Martin Bosch, son of a wealthy owner of a rose-growing business. The War Department mandated the replacement of the one-of-a-kind roses with tomato plants to support the war effort, and Martins father believes the family legacy had been lost forever. Their foreman, a Jewish man named Isaac Feinstein, has a secret: he heard the rumors of the Fhrers Final Solution. Still, he agreed to work with the Nazi prisoners when they were brought to Illinois to help with the tomatoes. Seeing the difficulty the Germans had communicating, Isaac suggested to Martins father that the teenager come daily to tutor the prisoners and give them a chance for a better life in America. Martins experience and ultimate friendship with the captives changed his life and their outlook forever. But is it possible for trained Nazi killers to assimilate into the innocence of American society in 1944? Can friendship overcome the indoctrination of a lifetime? This story is based on actual events. Bauske was born in rural southwest Michigan, and she was active in theatrical productions throughout high school and college. She earned her Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of Michigan. She became a Technical Writer and lived throughout the Midwest before settling in Orlando, in 1994. Many of her plays receive their first readings at the Osceola Center for the Arts in Kissimmee, Florida. Bauske is a member of the Dramatists Guild of America, the International Centre for Women Playwrights, and the Theatre Communications Group. She was nominated for the 2011 Francesca Primus Award presented by the American Theatre Critics Association for Outstanding Emerging Female Playwright. BIG ARTS Schein Performance Hall is located at 900 Dunlop Road on Sanibel. Tickets to play readings are $12 for adults and $5 for students. Visit www.BIGARTS.org for more event information.

41 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 8, 2013 From page 21Birds Eye Viewa renewable resource and in a few years the trapper can come back and harvest another batch.Because of the economic value of alligators, we will always have them in our backyards. But can we say the same thing for the non-game species like manatees and wood storks? The Fish and Wildlife has been under increased pressure for several years now to find some success with the Endangered Species Act. Its critics say it never works; species that get on the list seem to never get off. So, the next thing you know, more and more endangered species get reclassified. I guess I cant really blame the wildlife agencies for trying to present some good news from their nongame programs; I get more upset with our species as a whole who cannot appreciate the value of a species unless there is some sort of economic value placed on its head. But wood storks in South Florida (their historical stronghold) are not doing so well. At Corkscrew Swamp, which once boasted around 7,000 nesting pairs, hasnt seen a nest in the last six or seven years, according to Eric Draper of the Audubon of Florida. The pressure humans are placing on wood storks in South Florida may be forcing them to abandon this area and try their luck in more northern environments. The question is, will the storks a mostly tropical to sub-tropical species be able to sustain their numbers in these more northern, marginal habitats? I bet if we hunted wood storks, the government would not reclassify their status until it was absolutely positive the species was recovering! When my dad told me that only the species we domesticated or hunted had value, and realizing that he grew up in a community with a strong Christian background, I responded, Dad, what was the story of Noahs ark all about? I thought God said you need to have two of everything! I believe the story of Noahs ark is the first environmental story I ever heard. Even the people in biblical times understood the concept that diversity was necessary for a healthy environment; even the non-game species were important. Somewhere along the line, we lost that lesson. A former city council member and mayor, Mark Bird Westall has owned and operated Canoe Adventures, Inc. on Sanibel for over 33 years.

ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 8, 201342 Monday Night MovieRomantics Anonymousby Di SaggauThe BIG ARTS movie for Monday night, February 11 is Romantics Anonymous, a romantic romp amongst the romantically handicapped. Chocolate factory owner Jean-Rene (Cannes Awardwinner Benoit Poelvoorde) has bad luck in love as well in his business. After generations of creating the chocolate that is craved by the entire country, the factory is on the verge of bankruptcy. It would take a miracle to keep it open and, as luck would have it, a miracle is knocking at the door in the form of Angelique (Isabelle Carre), a young woman with a problem just like Jean-Renes. She is terribly shy, so shy that she ducks her head when she walks by a statue. Encouraged by her Romantics Anonymous group she strikes out for a job at the chocolate factory. She is not only beautiful, she is a gifted chocolate maker. Through an unexplained mistake, Jean-Rene awards her the job as saleswoman and before you know it, Angelique wins first prize in an international chocolate competition. The factory is saved, but saving her relationship with Jean-Rene will be much harder. They are together, then apart, together, then a misunderstanding, then together, then confusion. Many episodes later, they find out the truth they were looking for all along. The film is perfect for those who love modern French romantic comedies. The film is cute and cozy with those marvelous French chocolates that you can taste all the way from the screen. Theres no sex, no violence, no mystery and no backstabbing.

43 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 8, 2013 Snake Oil For Sale, Dr. ClaimsBy Max FriedersdorfSnake oil was an ancient Chinese remedy for arthritis, according to Dr. Morton E.Tavel, and the concept endures to this day, with Americans spending $28 billion annually on useless or unproven cures. Speaking before an audience at the Sanibel Public Library on January 30, Dr. Tavel, a physician of internal medicine and cardiology, explained that widespread gullibility has resulted in 75 percent of Americans using some form of alternative medicine. Seeking to explode some medical myths, Dr. Tavel, a Sanibel resident, has authored a book entitled, Snake Oil Is Alive And Well, The Clash Between Myth And Reality, Reflections Of A Physician. Citing experiences from his more than 40 years of medical practice, Dr. Tavel said that from 50 to 70 percent of patients visiting a doctors office will improve regardless of the treatment. Examples of flawed medical thinking, Dr. Tavel stated, are the concepts that heart disease does not benefit from exercise, exposure to rain is followed by a cold when the real culprit is a virus, and the myth that cell phones cause brain cancer. The term alternative medicine applies to any healing practice outside the realm of conventional medicine, Dr. Tavel explained, and applies to non-prescription drugs, vitamins, minerals and herbs. These products are not tested or approved by the Federal Drug Administration because they are not classified as drugs, Tavel added. During the question period, Dr. Tavel was asked about Viagra. He responded that Viagra works about 60 percent of the time, and works 22 percent of the time with a placebo, so why not try the placebo first? Tavel concluded. (A placebo is any inactive treatment followed by improvement or cure unexplained by time or physical factor). One pitfall, Tavel continued, is overgeneralizing about a new medical product from a small number. One or two cases do not establish a trend, he said. Dr. Tavel reported that 100 million Americans have consumed vitamins, minerals or herbals in the past year and 20 percent of the population take herbal products regularly. Consumers should be wary, Tavel warned, if advertisements for new products are accompanied by claims of secret formula, amazing breakthrough, or reports pretending to be news, and proof by testimonials. The tip-off on these items will be a statement reading not evaluated by the FDA and not recommended as a medical treatment, Tavel added. In conclusion, Dr. Tavel acknowledged to a questioner that there is a lot of unnecessary surgery, but declined to estimate how much. His final advice was to stick with the older drugs and generics, as they are often as good as the newer products. Dr. Morton E. Tavel Art League Lecture On Literature And ArtThe Sanibel-Captiva Art League will present a lecture by Carol Kaplan, Ph.D, on the relationship between art and literature at its monthly meeting on Wednesday, February 13 at 9 a.m. at The Community House, 2173 Periwinkle Way (across from the Herb Strauss Theater). The lecture is entitled Mythological Landscapes and Narratives of Desire: Andre Gide Reading Nicholas Poussin. For anyone who has read the controversial Nobel Prize winning French novelist Gide, or enjoyed the classical landscapes of oil painter Nicholas Poussin, the lecture will address the question of whether and how art and literature inform one another. Refreshments will be served at 9 a.m. The lecture will begin around 10 a.m. There is no admission fee and the public is welcome. Kaplan is a professor emerita of the French novel at California University of Pennsylvania. She received her undergraduate degree from Northwestern University and her Ph.D from the University of Pittsburg in French literature. She is an expert on Andre Gide. Whether its Gide and Proust, or Poussin, Matisse or the Nabi painters, the interaction of literature and art is an area of interest for many people.

45 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 8, 2013 Read us online at IslandSunNews.com February Programs At The Librarysubmitted by Cathy Cameron, Sanibel Public LibraryThe Sanibel Public Library will host a number of programs this month. There is no fee to attend and the programs are open to the public. On February 12 at 2 p.m., Lew Schneider will perform a bel canto program. Those who attended Schneiders program two years ago will remember that he did a brief survey of the bel canto giants Rossini, Donizetti, and Bellini plus several composers in the second tier. Schneider defined bel canto as a form of opera in the first half of the 19th century that emphasized beautiful and ornamented singing, some say to the detriment of drama. Schneider will demonstrate that there can be plenty of drama in the bel canto world by focusing on several operas composed by Donizetti. Attendees will hear and see videos of Anna Bolena, Lucrezia Borgia, Lucia Di Lammermoor and Maria Di Rodenz. Soloists will include Joan Sutherland, James Morris, Mariella Devia, Marcelo Alvarez, Daniela Barcelona, Rolando Villazon, Noelle Richardson, Katia Ricciarelli and Leo Nucci. There will be two short video scenes from Viva La Mamma, Donizettis parody of the opera world. On February 13 at 2 p.m., author Gerri Reaves will give a presentation on of her book Author of Legendary Locals of Fort Myers. A book signing will follow. From its beginning as a military installation in the Second Seminole War through the postwar booms of the 20th century, Fort Myers has had its share of famous residents and heroes, from Thomas Edison to Olympian Al Oerter, from musician Billy Nalle and football Hall-of-Famer Deion Sanders to worldrenowned artist Robert Rauschenberg. But beyond being the winter home of such famous residents as the Edisons and Fords, the City of Palms has been fertile ground for local legends, both admirable and notorious. Lynda Simmons will present a program on February 15 at 2 p.m. on How to Bounce-Proof Your Manuscript. You finished the book, polished it twice and still your book came bouncing back with polite rejections attached. If you dont want that book to come back again, this is the workshop for you. Simmons will cover sagging middles, compelling characters and how to keep an editor turning those pages. Simmons has published eight novels of her own and has more than 10 years experience teaching students about writing books that sell. On February 19 at 2 p.m., David Kilbride will return, playing your favorite songs from the s and s. Sanibel Public Library is at 770 Dunlop Road. for more information call 472-2483.

Poets Corner selected by Tanya HochschildThe Wren From Carolinaby Mary Oliver Just now the wren from Carolina buzzed through the neigbors hedge a line of grace notes I couldnt even write down much less sing. Now he lifts his chestnut colored throat and delivers such a cantering praise for what? For the early morning, the taste of the spider, for his small cup of life that he drinks from every day, knowing it will refill. All things are inventions of holiness. Some more rascally than others. Im on that list too, though I dont know exactly where. But, every morning, theres my own cup of gladness, and theres that wren in the hedge, above me, with his blazing song. We invite submissions from local poets. Anyone interested may submit their work via email to tutsie@ comcast.net. Each week, individual work will be showcased. On February 8 at 7:30 p.m. Mary Oliver, who has established herself in the highest realm of American poets, is the guest lecturer at the Annual Rachel Carson Distinguished Lecture Weekend at St. Michael and All Angels Church on Sanibel. The lecture is a signature event of the Center for Environmental and Sustainability Education at Florida Gulf Coast University. Olivers poetry, has a lyrical connection to the natural world. She has received countless distinctions, including winning a Pulizer prize, and the National Book Award for Poetry. Poets Corner is thrilled to have been given permission to print Mary Olivers The Wren from Carolina, in her anthology book Why I Wake Early, published by Beacon Press Boston, 2004.

47 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 8, 2013 Book Signings By Randy Wayne WhiteRandy Wayne White, bestselling author and Florida resident, has a new book coming out titled Night Moves (Putnam, on sale March 5), the 20th installment in the adventures of Doc Ford. Nearly 25 years ago, White kicked off his Doc Ford series with the publication of Sanibel Flats, which was chosen by the American Independent Mystery Booksellers Association as one of the Hundred Favorite Mysteries of the 20th Century. About his writing career, White said, When my marina closed in 1987, I wasnt qualified to do anything, so I wrote Sanibel Flats. I had two young sons, a lot of bills, so failure wasnt an option. It is a rare day when I do not reflect on my good luck to have succeeded in a very tough profession. Starring Marion Doc Ford (a marine biologist and former government agent) and his trusty best pal Tomlinson (free spirit, a bit of a mystic, and full-on good guy, despite his many flaws), these books have become a hit in the states and around the world. White will sign books at Doc Fords Sanibel Rum Bar & Grille on Sunday, March 3, from 12 to 2 p.m. and 4 to 6 p.m.; and Monday, March 4, from 12 to 2 p.m. and 4 to 6 p.m. Doc Fords is at 975 Rabbit Road. On Wednesday, March 6, at 6:30 p.m., White will make an appearance and sign books at Sanibel Island Bookshop, 1571 Periwinkle Way. Winner of the Conch Republic Award for literature and the John D. MacDonald Award for Literary Excellence, White has written 20 Doc Ford books, the bestselling novel Gone, four works of nonfiction, and two cookbooks as well as seven novels under the pseudonym Randy Striker. Before becoming a professional writer, he spent 13 years as the captain of a charter fishing boat in Tarpon Bay. From page 43Art League LectureARTS successful Art Poems program explores the question annually. Using an image-text means of analysis, Professor Kaplan will provide an academic look at whether and how these two art forms can be linked. The meeting and lecture is on a different date and at a different time than usual because the league is hosting the Art Council of Southwest Florida. The two groups will have their meetings on the same morning. All are invited to attend both meetings on February 13, which can give some insight as to the workings of the art community in the region. The San-Cap Art League welcomes artists of all levels and media. It meets on the third Thursday of every month during season (usually). Its art activities include exhibitions, plein air painting, studio painting at BIG ARTS, workshops and demonstrations and speakers on art and related topics at its meetings.

NEWSPAPERSanibel&CaptivaIslands BUSINESS REAL ESTATE CLASSIFIEDS VOL. 20, NO. 33 SANIBEL & CAPTIVA ISLANDS, FLORIDA FEBRUARY 8, 2013 B BSECTION Shell Show Judges AnnouncedExperts from the Smithsonian Institution, the Florida Museum of Natural History, Barbados and Cape Cod will travel to Sanibel to judge the 76th annual Sanibel Shell Show next month. For the past 76 years, seashell enthusiasts have gathered on Sanibel to see who has collected the most interesting shells or has created the most beautiful piece of art with shells. As the years have passed, the shell show has become more sophisticated, and today it is known as one of the best shows in the United States. There are 28 categories of competition in the Scientific Division (collections of shells) and 24 categories of competition in the Artistic Division (artistic creations). The Sanibel-Captiva Shell Club has chosen the following individuals to judge the coming Sanibel Shell Show: MG Jerry Harasewych, Washington, DC, a curator in the Department of Invertebrate Zoology at the Smithsonian Institution and the co-author of The Book of Shells, a life-size guide to identifying and classifying 600 seashells. Harasewych will judge exhibits in the Scientific Division. John Slapcinsky, Gainesville, Florida, knowledgeable collection manager for the malacology department at the Florida Museum of Natural History. Slapcinsky will also judge the scientific exhibits. Daphne Hunte, Barbados, a sailors valentine collector and creator who also creates other pieces of shell art. She has a fine eye for detail and design and has judged the Artistic Division at many shows. Lee Repetto, Cape Cod, Massachusetts, designer with a fine artistic continued on page 5B John Slapcinsky MG Jerry Harasewych Daphne Hunte Sanibel Shell Festival ReturnsLast year, the Sanibel Shell Fair and Show marked its 75th anniversary with a month-long celebration of shell-collecting history, attracting national attention. This year, the event returns on March 7, 8, and 9 to begin its next 75 years under a new banner, The Sanibel Shell Festival. Whether you are a die-hard shell connoisseur, a casual collector, someone who admires intricate craftsmanship or a beach lover looking to learn about shells, the Sanibel Shell Festival is a must-do affair. World-class, prize-winning shell specimens will be on display, as well as educational exhibits and array of intricately made shell art and crafts. In addition, youll find treasures from the sea to take home as gifts or souvenirs. The festival will be held at The Community House Admission is free for the outdoor shell area and there is a $5 donation continued on page 5B Sanibel Shell FestivalUnited Way CampaignThe Sanibel-Captiva United Way Campaign is approaching the conclusion of its 2012-13 campaign, with only four weeks remaining. As of January 28, the Sanibel-Captiva campaign had raised just over $283,578, which is 90 percent of the goal of $315,000. Tony Lapi of Tween Waters Inn, the Sanibel-Captiva United Way Campaign chair, said We are happy to be at 90 percent of our goal, and a huge thank you to those who have already given. Our United Way will wrap up the annual campaign February 28, and we need everyones help to reach 100 percent. What would happen if we did not make our goal? Our 70 partner agencies would not be fully funded for programs that feed hungry people, protect abused children and help seniors live independently in their own homes. Lets all join together to make a difference in thousands of lives. Lapi continued, Though there has been a small improvement in the local economy, thousands of people have been left behind that improvement, and the needs of children, families and seniors have not lessened. United Way 211, the help line for referral to health and human services, took about 18,000 calls for help a year before the downturn. The number of calls for help has actually increased each year and totaled 58,000 in 2012. I know we can meet the goal! he emphasized. But we need your help and continued on page 8B

We are deeply sorry to see Steves three-year tenure at CROW come to an end. He has managed CROW through a challenging period of organizational re-structuring, recruitment of a new Hospital Director, expansion of CROWs educational outreach and progress toward financial stability, said CROW Board President John Schubert. His clear thinking, positive attitude and leadership will be missed. We wish Steve all the best in his new endeavors. In departing, Greenstein stated, I am proud to have worked with a dedicated team of staff, students and volunteers that works so hard every day on behalf of the wildlife of our area. I deeply appreciate everyone who has helped CROW during the last three years by giving their time, talent and financial support. If our wildlife neighbors could talk, they would join me in saying thank you. Meanwhile, for most people (and patients), it will seem to be business as usual at CROW. Our senior staff, including Hospital Director Dr. Heather Barron, Business Director Ava Hinojosa and Development Director James Robinson, and CROWs Board of Directors and the rest of the CROW team, are all committed to maintaining our normal high standards of patient care and educational outreach, added Schubert.

Feiner said that this honor is a recognition of FISH and the work that it has done over many years, and gave all the credit to the organizations staff and Board of Directors. However, we all know where we would be if it had not been for Maggis passion and dedication over many years, said John Morse, FISH President. What a wonderful honor for a wonderful person.

9B ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 8, 2013 The Sanibel School Receives EndowmentThe Foundation for Lee County Public Schools has designated a Carson Scholars Fund endowment in the name of Bob and Linda Taylor. Dr. Bill and Lorraine Frey, residents of Sanibel Island, issued a challenge match to the foundation board of directors in order to permanently endow a Lee County elementary school with a Carson Scholarship. The challenge was met immediately, and The Sanibel Island School has been permanently endowed with a Bob and Linda Taylor Carson Scholarship. A surprise reception was held on January 30 unveiling the endowment. Donors gathered at the Gwynne Building in downtown Fort Myers to honor the lifetime achievements of the Taylors and present them with a crystal apple, symbolizing all they have done to support public education in Lee County. The Taylors were given the opportunity to select an elementary school that would benefit from the endowment, and they named The Sanibel School in honor of their longtime connection to the island and the Freys connection to Sanibel. The Carson Scholars Fund was brought to The Foundation for Lee County Public Schools in 2009 due to the vision and generosity of Dr. Frey. Each year, the foundation recognizes a select group of high achieving students in fifth grade who demonstrate outstanding academic achievement and humanitarian qualities. Students receive a $1,000 college scholarship award and the honor of being named a Carson Scholar. In addition to the scholarship award, the selected students are honored at a recognition banquet with world-renowned pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Benjamin Carson. Endowments cost $30,000 and ensure the school will award a Carson Scholarship each year in perpetuity. For more information on the Carson Scholars Fund, call 3370433 or visit www.leeschoolfoundation.org. Linda Taylor, Bob Taylor and Dr. Bill Frey Linda Taylor, Bob Taylor, Robbie Roepstorff and Marshall Bower Zonta Peek House Tour Features A Unique Homesubmitted by Wendy HumphreyThe first house to be announced for Zontas Peek at the Unique annual home tour this year is an open, airy, enchanting space which both brings in the world of nature outside and harmonizes with it. The Peek, the signature fundraiser for the Zonta Club of Sanibel/ Captiva, will be held Saturday, March 16. Kismet is owned by Anita and John Poling, formerly of Columbus Ohio, and now full-time Sanibel residents. When they began designing their home three years ago, their vision was to create a tropical modern space which encompassed the spectacular view down Gulf Shores Lagoon and the native ambiance of one of Sanibels most natural communities, Gulf Pines. They also imagined a home that could showcase their art collection from all over the world from Columbus to Shanghai, China. The result is simply spectacular. Fronting the wide airy and open living area, a glass wall opens on to a wide lanai looking down the length of the lagoon. The master bedroom looks out on to tropical trees and plants. Everything about this fivebedroom home encourages communing with nature. The design of the Polings captivating home was the result of their collaboration with Craig L. Meyer, C.P.B.D., of Fort Myers, designer; Gulf Pines neighbor David Neville; and designer Marya Teets of Sanibel Design Center. Constructed by Sanibelbased Dan Hahn Custom Builders, the homes details will delight Peekers: twelve foot ceilings with inset lighting, reclaimed red and white oak floors, light everywhere and the colors of nature in every room. But it is the Polings themselves who have imbued their home with their own distinctive imagination, whimsical humor and love of nature. With art and sculpture collected from galleries and artists from Sanibel, Columbus and their travels throughout the world, and furniture complemented by items from auctions, resale shops and even Noahs Ark on Sanibel, the Poling home reflects an eclectic vision and energy that will both intrigue and entrance tour participants.continued on page 16B Anita and John Poling Poling house deck view overlooking Gulf Shores Lagoon Living room view of the Polig house

The dinner will be held at The Community House on Saturday, February 23. Dinner is served from 4 to 8 p.m., followed by music, dancing, raffle and a live auction from 8 to 10 p.m. This years affair promises to set new records in the categories of diners, raffle prize winners, and significant funds raised to support youthoriented charitable causes on the islands. Long time major sponsors Sanibel Captiva Trust Company, Bank of the Islands and Baileys General Store are all back in their major support roles. In addition, other sponsors have joined the team including Sanibel Air Conditioning, Sanctuary Island Electric, Barefoot Charlies Painting, Island Photography, Billys Bike Shop and the Lazy Flamingo II. Joining the sponsor lineup for the first time this year is the Sanibel Bean. The sponsors play a critical role in helping stage the event. The major sponsor contributions help underwrite the cost of putting on the dinner and of assembling the array of product and service items made available in the raffle and auction which follows the dinner, all of which contributes to maximizing the funds raised by the event. Billy Kirkland, owner of Billys Bike Shop and a supporter of the event for over 25 years, echoed the feeling of most spaghetti dinner sponsors when asked why his business lends its support. Spaghetti dinner is a great example of why Sanibel is a special place. The whole town comes together to make it happen, all types of people, young and old, with everybody doing their part. And I like the fact that the proceeds from this event benefit so many different organizations on the island. In addition to the primary sponsors, countless island businesses, organizations and private individuals pitch in with donated merchandise items and gift certificates for the raffle. The spaghetti dinner raffle is famous for having a quirky collection of goods and services on display, which makes for some lively and fun competition among those set on winning their favorite item. All in all, the spaghetti dinner is an event that demonstrates island community spirit for a great cause. Patrons get a complete Italian feast, with spaghetti, meatballs and sauce, salad, toasted garlic bread and beverages, and its all you can eat. Admission is $8 in advance or $9 at the door, and children under 10 eat free. Advance tickets can be purchased from any Kiwanis member and also at Bank of the Islands, Bike Red Q Printing and Periwinkle Park.

14B ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 8, 2013 Airport Volunteers Treated To Island HospitalityIn cooperation with the Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau, Tarpon Bay Explorers recently hosted 21 airport volunteers and two VCB staff members for a day of outdoor fun, exercise and education in the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel. Volunteers from the Southwest Florida International Airport are treated annually to a guided tour of the refuge, compliments of the refuges concessionaire, Tarpon Bay Explorers. The Explorers co-owner and manager, Wendy Schnapp, hosted the volunteers and believes its a great way for first-line greeters to relay information about the refuge to arriving tourists. The group gathered at Tarpon Bay on a warm, breezy day to embark on their firstever guided kayak tour with Schnapp as their guide. After receiving detailed instructions on kayak paddling, the group ventured into the water for a 90-minute tour through the Commodore Creek Kayak Trail on Tarpon Bay. Paddling among the mangroves with a guide gave the group a greater appreciation for the dynamic mangrove estuary ecosystem and the abundant wildlife that thrives within. Marine life below the surface was visible in the relatively shallow water, including the ever-present sea stars. Numerous birds were sighted and, at one point, an osprey flew right over the kayaks carrying a stick back to its nest. Most of the group had never kayaked before. Airport volunteer Sue Kucko was all smiles upon returning. This was great! she exclaimed. I had put it on my bucket list! The group worked up an appetite and rounded out their experience with a delicious lunch at George & Wendys Seafood Grille. Both George & Wendys restaurant and Tarpon Bay Explorers can be found on Facebook for up-to-date happenings. Tarpon Bay Explorers invites you to experience the many adventures they have to offer. Open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (6 p.m. starting February 15), you can visit Tarpon Bay Explorers in the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge at 900 Tarpon Bay Road, Sanibel.

by Patricia MolnarWith a figure well in excess of its $50,000 goal, St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church wrapped up its campaign to raise funds for Habitat for Humanity on February 1. The money has been earmarked for the rehabilitation of the St. Michaels House, located in the Harlem Heights section of south Ft. Myers. The effort culminated in a party with the theme Raise the Roof, which featured an auction led by popular Sanibel figure Richard Johnson. St. Michaels parishioners, approximately 150 of whom were present, were able to bid on construction materials such as windows, plumbing fixtures and cabinetry to be used in the homes renovation. The evenings entertainment was provided by members of the St. Michaels choir. Blueprints, ladders, paint buckets and brushes and assorted other construction items served as dcor. The idea to undertake a project for the benefit of Habitat for Humanity was spearheaded by St. Michaels parishioner and Habitat supporter Bob Syversen. His fellow parishioner Phil Pilibosian served as chairman of the committee which organized the Raise the Roof event. Elaborating on the success of the fundraising effort, St. Michaels rector, the Rev. Ellen Sloan said, St. Michaels has always had outreach as a primary focus. We are deeply grateful that the efforts of so many parishioners have now made it possible for Habitat for Humanity to completely renovate a home for a family in Harlem Heights. Thats really what walking the Gospel is all about.

ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 8, 201316B The Lights Went Out At Super Bowl, But Sporting World Not Dark Locallyby Ed FrankIts doubtful whether Sunday nights Super Bowl power outage in the Superdome will be remembered as long as that famous old song, The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia, but it sure provided some kind of electricity for the San Francisco 49ers, who roared back with 17 unanswered points once the lights came back. But Super Bowl XVII and the Baltimore Ravens 34-31 victory over the 49ers is now past history, so this week we will shine the lights on several local sporting events that are about to take place including: The opening of Spring Training next week for the Boston Red Sox and the Minnesota Twins. The 26th edition of the Ace Group Classic Champions Golf Tournament at TwinEagles in Naples. The second season of the Florida Tarpons, members of the Ultimate Indoor Football League, who were undefeated in regular season play during their initial year. The 15th Annual Minnesota Twins Golf and Bowling Tournament to benefit the Lee Memorial Regional Cancer Center. Spring Training Set to Start Minneapolis and Boston may be buried in snow, but their two baseball teams will open Spring Training here next week with Red Sox pitchers and catchers reporting to JetBlue Stadium Monday and Twins pitchers and catchers signing in at the Lee County Sports Complex the next day. The full squads will report two days later. Spring Training gets started nearly two weeks earlier than normal this year due to the upcoming World Baseball Classic. We will have 2013 season outlooks for both teams later this month. Both the Red Sox and the Twins experienced disappointing losing seasons a year ago.

Bordered by West Sanibel River Preserve to the north and Gulf Shores to the East, Gulf Pines is mainly wetlands. When the Mariner Corporation developed the subdivision in 1972, both developers and residents envisioned a community in harmony with nature and one another. To maintain the natural ambiance and to attract buyers who cared about community and the natural charm of the island, the developers buried the underground utilities, added a greenway which winds around the bayous and connects various parts of the community and built picturesque bridges over the bayous for the observation of wildlife. A pair of bald eagles which have been nesting on tall pines at the entrance to Gulf Pines attract photographers from all over the world This house, one of four featured on the tour, is sponsored by Dan Hahn Custom Builders, Inc., and Sanibel Design Center. Last years Peek raised over $90,000 for local and international non-profits that work to improve the status of women. This will be the 12th year for the popular tour.

17B ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 8, 2013 Paganini Returns To Jacaranda For Cooking Classesby Jeff LysiakThere are two things in the world that Loretta Paganini enjoys the most: Italy and Sanibel. So, the week each year that she blends the two during her popular Tropical Cooking Extravaganza, held last week at Jacaranda Restaurant Paganini is wearing a smile from ear to ear. After 16 years, the people here who take my classes arent customers theyre friends, said Paganini, who last year became a resident of Sanibel. When Im cooking in my kitchen, I like to be surrounded by friends, having a good time. Last Wednesday, Paganini welcomed another 31 students to her annual series. The Made In Italy menu of the day included a Neapolitan artichoke zeppole with fresh pomodoro sauce, a baby green salad with poached pears, pecans and goat cheese fritters, a venetian seafood risotto with vegetables, grilled steak Florentine-style with spinach and roasted red pepper in herb sauce, corn pudding and strawberry tiramisu with chocolate sauce. During her cooking demonstration, Paganini explained the differences between dining out in Italy and America. Among the greatest variations are the size of the meal portions (far larger in the United States), the freshness and variety of ingredients (both greater in Italy) and the length of time it takes to sit down and enjoy a meal. Here in America, dinner is rushed, she explained. But over in Italy, dinner is an experience perhaps three or four hours enjoying good food, good wine and good people.

Pay attention and look closely might be the best motto, lest we overlook the amazing plant features in our midst. Although mango-picking and -eating season wont be here until summer, mango lovers have reason to notice the mango trees ( Mangifera indica) right now. The inflorescences are doing their magic transforming those pea-sized objects into whats known as the king of fruits in its native range of India and tropical Asia. And it isnt just only the yellow-green future mangos worth noticing what about those stunning pink stems and soft pink flowers for color contrast? If you think its necessary to plant geraniums or impatiens for a touch of color, behold the subtle beauty of slash pine ( Pinus elliottii) bark. This native is one of the regions most common and ecologically important trees. The trunks are deeply furrowed and papery, with scales ranging in color from orangeto purple-brown to soft gray. In this photo, the winter-orange leaves of the native Virginia creeper vine (Parthenocissus quinquefolia) accentuate the barks color variations. We all know that vines travel, and sometimes surprisingly fast. The tiny tendrils of the corkystem passionflower (Passiflora suberosa) help to explain how one native species does it. Like coiled springs, the tendrils propel themselves and wind around new catch-holds in a search for sun and space. Silently and beautifully, this native vine gets around and thrives. And thats a good thing, since its the host plant for the zebra longwing, Floridas state butterfly, as well as for the gulf fritillary and Julia butterflies. Plant Smart explores sustainable gardening practices that will help you create an environmentally responsible, low-maintenance South Florida landscape. Slash pine barks colors vary from gray and brown to orange and purple Corkystem passionflower travels via coiled tendrils photos by Gerri Reaves In winter, yellow-green pea-sized mangos develop amid pink flowers on pink stems

ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 8, 201320B by Anne MitchellAccording to a new survey released this week by OpenTable, a leading provider of online restaurant reservations, restaurants are poised to be busy with diners celebrating love not only on Thursday, February 14, but on the weekend following Valentines Day. Diners also indicated that they plan to celebrate love in a big way with a projected check average of $139, which is 63 percent more than the typical OpenTable check average of $85 per couple. For island restaurants, this most romantic of holidays this year offers the possibility of a three-day dining opportunity but also points up the need to make reservations as soon as possible. Valentines Day falls at the peak of the winter high season, and Sanibel and Captiva restaurants are jammed every night. The survey also examined dating habits and trends related to the busiest holiday for dining out. 51 percent of respondents said they plan to dine out on Thursday, February 14, while 36 percent said they plan to celebrate Valentines Day on Friday, February 15, or Saturday, February 16 5 percent of diners said they plan to celebrate on Wednesday, February 13 8 percent of respondents plan on dining out more than once for Valentines Day Island restaurants many of them more romantic than most are ready to offer special hospitality to make the occasion special. For example, Traditions on the Beach at the Island Inn has planned an evening of dinner with gulf front views, dancing, live entertainment and perhaps even a sunset stroll on the beach if you time it right. A complimentary long stem rose will be given to each Valentine. Traditions is located steps from the water. If you want to be sure of an after-dinner sunset stroll on the beach, book the 5 to 5:30 p.m. seating. Dinner specials will be served in addition to the regular menu. For those who want to dance or just listen to romantic ballads, Pianoman Joe McCormick will be playing popular favorites, smooth vocal stylings, R&B, jazz and pop. Traditions is housed in the historic Island Inn at 3111 West Gulf Drive, phone 472 4559. Cupid is expected to boost the sale of jewelry this year, too. The 2013 Valentines Day spending survey conducted by BIGinsight for the National Retail Federation found that those who intend to purchase jewelry as a gift accounted for 19.7 percent of shoppers and that figure is up from 18.9 percent in 2012, according to the survey. The NRF expects sales of jewelry and watches to increase 7 percent year on year for Valentines Day at $4.4 billion. Lily & Co. Jewelry Gallery on Sanibel is ready for love. The store will celebrate romance, fine jewelry and fine art with five days of special events the week of Valentines Day. For the fifth year, the Sanibel jewelry store has geared up to help men make perfect choices for their Valentines with a four-day Save The Males event February 11 to 14. Receive Godiva chocolates, a Valentines card and roses from Floral Artistry with any purchase. Make a purchase of over $500 and receive the Platinum Valentines Gift Package, which includes all of the above, plus dinner for two at Traders Store & Caf on Sanibel. Lily & Co co-owner Dan Schuyler calls it, a one-stop shop to create that perfect romantic evening. During Save The Males, Lily & Co will host a trunk show on Tuesday, February 12 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. with award-winning designer Denny Wong showcasing the Hong Kong natives entire line of elegant pieces. Since 1974, Wong has made Hawaii his home, where his passion of jewelry design and love for the islands unite to create many fine lines of jewelry. Hawaiian-themed fare and refreshments will be served. Also, Sanibel artist Myra Roberts will unveil her new collection during a cocktail reception from 5 to 9 p.m. on Friday, February 15 at Lily & Co. Roberts is known for her vintage-style oil paintings that convey the mood and style of the 1920s to the 1950s. In her new collection, Roberts introduces glittery iridescent mermaids. Roberts new Tamiami painting will be up for raffle during the reception with proceeds benefiting Friends In Service Here (FISH) of Sanibel. Tickets are $25 each and can be purchased at Lily & Co. The winner will be announced at the close of the reception and does not need to be present to win. Lily & Co. is now carrying Nantucket Lightship Baskets handmade by Martha Lawrence, a third generation of a family of artists who draw inspiration from the whaling history of Nantucket. When you purchase one of her baskets, you are taking home a piece of history, said Schuyler. It is like when people visit Sanibel to go shelling; people go to Nantucket and take home a piece of the island through the baskets. They represent the culture of its era. Lily & Co. is at 520 Tarpon Bay Road, Sanibel, phone 472-2888. Youve probably noticed the proliferation of stand-up paddleboards. This is perhaps the fastest growing sport since snowboarding.

Using a canoe-like paddle and standing atop a larger version of a traditional longboard surfboard, paddlers push themselves through the water with perfectly choreographed side to side paddle strokes. He added, Stand-up paddling offers a phenomenal core workout with a cadence much like swimming or cycling. Reservations for the classes may be made by calling 4729656.

Sanibel Caf strengthened its hold on third place with an 8-4 whitewashing of the Sandycappers. John Earle and Joe Mason had perfect 3-0 nights for the winners and Kevin Pottorf gained three of his teams four points with a dominating win over Cafs acting captain Pete Mindel, who blamed increased administrative duties for his loss. In an effort to move up in the standings, the Odd Balls brought in Danny Goodsitt, a top shooter from Orlando. Goodsitt displayed his skills by sinking the eight ball in his first game. But, alas, he scratched for a loss. From there on in, it was downhill for Goodsitt as Island Lifer Gary Murza put him back on the bus to Orlando with a 3-0 trouncing and pushed the Lifers to fifth place. Also posting 3-0 wins for the night were Noah Smith, Tom Schaner, Chip Gelpi and Patty Frank. Steve Gordon played only two games and won both handily over Matt Muggins Hall.

Never mind. If you trust your facts, follow your courageous Aries heart and go with it. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your enthusiasm sparks renewed interest in a workplace project that once seemed headed for deletion. Support from supervisors helps you make all necessary changes. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A colleague might be a bit too contrary when your ideas are being discussed in the workplace. A demand for an explanation could produce some surprises all around. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Try to avoid distractions at a time when maintaining stability in a fluid situation is essential. Therell be time enough later for the Moon Child to enjoy some well-earned fun and games. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Stop wasting energy licking your wounded pride. Instead, put the lessons you learned from that upsetting experience to good use in an upcoming opportunity. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) You love being busy. But try not to make more work for yourself than you need to. Get help so that you dont wind up tackling tasks that are better left to others. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your usually balanced way of assessing situations could be compromised by some so-called new facts. Check them out before making any shift in judgment. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You might feel angry over an unexpected shift in attitude by someone you trusted. But this could soon turn in your favor as more surprising facts come out. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Love rules everywhere for all amorous Archers, single or attached. Its also a good time to restore friendships that might have frayed over the years. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Its not always easy for the proud Goat to forgive past slights. But clearing the air could help establish a better climate for that important upcoming venture. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Good news: Your skillful handling of a recent matter has won admiration from someone who could be influential in any upcoming decisions involving you. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You continue to welcome new friends into the widening circle of people whom you hold dear. One of those newcomers soon might have something special to tell you. BORN THIS WEEK: You love nature and inspire others to follow your example of concern for the planets well-being. On Feb. 14, 278 A.D., Valentine, a holy priest in Rome in the days of Emperor Claudius II, is executed. Claudius the Cruel had banned all marriages and engagements. Valentine defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. On Feb. 17, 1904, Giacomo Puccinis opera Madame Butterfly premieres at the La Scala theater in Milan, Italy. Set in Nagasaki, Japan, Madame Butterfly told the story of an American sailor, B.F. Pinkerton, who marries and then abandons a young Japanese geisha, Cio-Cio-San, or Madame Butterfly. On Feb. 11, 1916, Emma Goldman, a crusader for womens rights and social justice, is arrested in New York City for lecturing and distributing materials about birth control. She was accused of violating the Comstock Act of 1873, which made it a federal offense to disseminate contraceptive devices and information through the mail or across state lines. On Feb. 13, 1920, The League of Nations, the international organization formed at the peace conference at Versailles in the wake of World War I, recognizes the perpetual neutrality of Switzerland. The League also established its headquarters in the Swiss city of Geneva. On Feb. 16, 1959, Fidel Castro is sworn in as prime minister of Cuba after leading a guerrilla campaign that forced right-wing dictator Fulgencio Batista into exile. The United States initially recognized the new Cuban dictator but withdrew its support after Castro nationalized U.S. assets on the island. On Feb. 15, 1965, in accordance with a formal proclamation by Queen Elizabeth II of England, a new Canadian national flag is raised above Parliament Hill in Ottawa, the capital of Canada. Canadas national flag was to be red and white with a stylized 11-point red maple leaf in its center. On Feb. 12, 1973, the release of American POWs from the Vietnam War begins in Hanoi as part of the Paris peace settlement. Operation Homecoming was completed on March 29, 1973, when the last of 591 U.S. prisoners were released and returned to the United States. It was Simon Cameron, who served as secretary of war under President Abraham Lincoln, who made the following sage observation: An honest politician is one who, when he is bought, will stay bought. You might not be surprised to learn that some people who play video games can become rather obsessed. In 2007, one such person, a 45-year-old gamer, used a Japanese sword to rob a lingerie shop. He was apprehended, and when he was put on trial, he told the judge that at the time of the robbery he believed he was a female elf. Its common knowledge that methane, a greenhouse gas, contributes to the rise in global temperatures. Its less well-known, however, that 20 percent of the worlds methane emissions comes from livestock and their, well ... emissions. Many professional matchmakers say that one should never date a person who is younger than half ones age, plus seven years. The average human walks approximately 100,000 miles in the course of a lifetime. If that walking were done in a straight line on the equator, you would circle the Earth four times. In the early 1990s, a couple in Milwaukee was curious about the value of a painting they had displayed in their home, so they invited an art expert to evaluate the piece. The painting in question turned out to be of little relative value, but the expert noticed another work, a still life with flowers, that the owners believed to be a reproduction of a Van Gogh. Imagine this couples surprise when the work turned out to be an original 1886 painting, which later sold at auction for $1.4 million. A bride at her second wedding does not wear a veil because she wants to see what she is getting. -Anonymous THIS WEEK IN HISTORY STRANGE BUT TRUE THOUGHT FOR THE DAY26B ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 8, 2013

Brett Lindsay, director of sales and marketing of Sundial, with Bridgit Stone-Budd, director of marketing of the Sanibel-Captiva Chamber of Commerce League Of Women Voters AnniversaryThe League of Women Voters will celebrate its 93rd anniversary on Thursday, February 14. Since its founding, the league has worked to protect and uphold the constitutional right to vote, a right that composes the very foundation of democracy. In the upcoming Supreme Court case Shelby County, Alabama vs. Holder, the constitutionality of the Voting Rights Act (VRA) of 1965 will be reviewed. The VRA is landmark legislation that ensures every American citizen, regardless of race, has an equal right to vote. Should the court rule against the VRA, which prevents states from passing discriminatory voting rules, the right to vote for millions of Americans would be at risk. The thought that the Supreme Court might soon overturn the Voting Rights Act and limit voting rights should send a chill down the spine of every American, said Sanibel league president Carolyn Gray. The league believes we should be expanding voting rights, not curtailing them, and working to make elections free, fair and accessible to all eligible citizens. The upcoming Supreme Court review of the Voting Rights Act shows that even after 93 years, the leagues work is needed more than ever. The League of Women Voters of Sanibel is one of nearly 800 leagues in all 50 states that work to protect voters rights. Since 1920, the league has worked to educate and inform voters. We respect all points of view, and never support or oppose candidates for office, or political parties, said Gray. This is what sets us apart from so many organizations, and it is why we welcome new volunteers to take part in our work here in Sanibel. Membership in the league is open to men and women of all ages. For more information, email sanibelLWV@gmail. com. Carolyn Gray Creative Photography Scavenger Hunt BIG ARTS is hosting a new event, a Creative Photography Scavenger Hunt, on Tuesday, April 9 at BIG ARTS Center.

30B ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 8, 2013 School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, For about the past two weeks, my seven-year-old daughter has refused to go to school. Its been awful. We are trying different things to help her but nothing is working. Do you have any ideas? Roxanne G., Estero, Florida Roxanne, School refusal behaviors are very frustrating and it can happen at any age. Signs of school refusal typically reflect some form of anxiety: separation from a parent; academic performance; bullying; lack of peer acceptance; obsessions or compulsions. The child or adolescent may display a variety of behaviors in order to avoid going to school: temper tantrums; body aches or sickness; or school-specific phobias. A transition at home may come before the onset of school refusal; it can be major like a divorce, new school, death of a loved friend, family member or pet, or just a change in schedule such as a long weekend or school vacation. According to the Maryland School Mental Health Association: When compared to their developmental peers: Students who display symptoms of school refusal display lower levels of academic performance. Students who display symptoms of school refusal are less likely to complete high school. Students who display symptoms of school refusal display more disruptive behavior in school. Students who display symptoms of school refusal are more likely to skip certain classes. Students who display symptoms of school refusal inhibit the learning process of others. So school refusal is a serious issue and not one that goes away without some type of intervention. When the behavior is fairly new or not routine, younger children often do very well with just a little help from parents and teachers. Adolescents present more of a challenge. Once school refusal becomes significant and has begun to go on for multiple weeks, the prognosis is still excellent but a treatment component from a mental health professional is usually necessary. Generally speaking, a few talk sessions with your child to understand the root cause of the anxiety is the first step. Once the trusted adults in her life understand the cause and provide the emotional support to deal with her concerns, your daughter will be more comfortable expressing her anxiety in a more functional way. Partnering with your daughters school to solve this behavior is very important. Work with the school to help her make up any missed academic work. For her to develop any additional fears of school failure from missed schoolwork would be detrimental. Very often school counselors, teachers and psychologists will establish an incentive system for attending school on a regular basis. They will also check with your daughter from time to time to make sure everything is going well. Resolving school refusal takes time but is most often successful once the childs anxiety and fears have been identified and discussed.

Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: How are stress and self-worth connected?A: Our selfworth affects how we manage stress. We all have different levels of self worth. The development of our real self-worth comes from the completeness and wholeness within ourselves. The amount of self-worth that you assign yourself is of great importance. It is important to learn to appreciate yourself every day. The key is to learn to love and honor yourself. Learn to listen to and trust your inner guidance system, that inner knowing that softly guides you to the proper action for the situation you are facing. Your inner guidance (intuition) system will not lead you astray. We all have an inner knowing. It can come as a hunch to take a certain course of action. You may feel a strong sensation in your body to avoid a situation. Pay attention to the messages you are receiving. With this increased awareness, your level of self-worth will increase and stress levels will decrease for a healthier and happier you.

32B ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 8, 2013 Superior InteriorsDelightfully Dazzling Dining Rooms by Cindy MalszyckiOftentimes, I meet a client who thinks their dining room is the easiest of all rooms to furnish. Once theyve made the decision on their table and chairs, they tend to think thats all there is to it. Not so. While that may be one of the biggest decisions to be made, its far from all. I submit that you still need to consider providing for the comfort of guests as well as the convenience of the hostess. I find that there are often problems unique to this room that often make it a design challenge. With that in mind, it does take some considerable planning to create and design a dining room that will take center stage in your home. Chairs alone are a far from simple choice. Massive ones take up too much space, so its important to search for well designed chairs that are comfortable as well. Dont worry about having enough dining room chair shapes and sizes to pick from; there are so many its bewildering, unless of course you have professional help. Tables, too, come in all shapes and sizes. The size should fit both the room and your family and ideally be designed for easy expansion. Expandable tables, with drop leaves, built-in extensions and inserts/leaves are all practical. Todays table design options can convert from a small cozy table to one that can be instantly enlarged when company is expected. The lighting above your table should be carefully selected to assure the right wattage and the best light direction for the diners. The height of the chandelier is another important decision. Its also more convenient to have silverware, linens and serving pieces stored right in the room. A sideboard or chest will help to give you the storage you need, and can also handle the food for a sit down buffet. If you opt for this additional furniture piece, consider its top. Its best for these pieces to be covered in a moistureand stain-resistant material such as marble or tile. Other storage options to consider are cabinets or armoires. A very attractive unit might also become the rooms focal point an extra added design benefit. Youll find it helpful to think through the many uses of your dining room. Our modes of entertaining are many and ever changing. Ultimately, this means that your dining room design plan should be one that features flexibility. Whether youre hosting a Sunday brunch for six or a midnight snack for 20, versatility and comfort should guide you toward the best furniture and design plan.

Hersch|Attorney, CPAFlorida Bar Board Certied, Wills, Trusts & Estates Island Sun Will Power Columnist Just My Opinionby Bryan HayesAs with all of my articles, its just my opinion. With the current outbreak of red tide, I want to discuss what works for me. When we have a red tide event, I often find it necessary to close up the windows and turn the air conditioning on. I find it helps with the coughing and irritation. I believe that by running the air through the system, it helps clean the air. This happens in two ways. When the a/c is running, the air passes over a cold, wet coil. I suspect that the moisture that is being removed from your home captures some of the red tide irritants that may be present and then washes out with the condensated water. I also think that because we are recirculating the same air through the system, some of these toxins dissipate over time. Whether you have a high-end filtration system or just use standard throw aways, any filtration will help to some extent. It may be beneficial to change your filters a little more often when we have a red tide event. Also, it may be beneficial to run your fan even if you are not heating or cooling your home. By recirculating the air through the filtration systems, the air will be cleaned. Bryan Hayes is a Sanibel air conditioning contractor.

34B ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 8, 2013 I guess that my workshops that describe the benefits of Florida residency, including the potential income tax savings, have made word all the way back to St. Paul, Minnesota. In response to the flock of snowbirds who maintain residences here and there, Governor Mark Dayton wants to tax the investment income of those who spend more than 60 days in the land of ten thousand lakes, even if they are no longer legal residents of the state. I jest, of course, about my workshops, but this is potentially serious business. The new tax would hit part-time Minnesota residents unearned income. So even if one doesnt spend the requisite six months and a day in the state to qualify as a taxable resident of Minnesota, they must file a Minnesota state income tax return if this new law gets passed. Floridians who enjoy watching their former hometown Twins during spring training and then go back to their Minnesota lake residences to play with their grandchildren during the hot summer months would apparently be baked economically by the Governors scheme. Minnesota, like other northern states that impose income taxes, has watched their wealthier residents take flight to Florida, where no state income tax is imposed. This means a big difference when considering unearned revenue sources of many retirees such as dividends, interest and capital gains. Earned income in states that impose a state income tax (such as salaries) cant be avoided, regardless of the individuals state of residence. But most retirees dont have any more earned income. Instead, their income is derived from their savings. So this plan attempts to tax those part-year residents on the theory that they consume state services, even if they are only there the months of July and August. How might Minnesota rein in those crafty snowbirds that have legal residences here in Florida? The state department of revenue has their ways. They could subpoena phone records, credit card statements, restaurant receipts and a host of other bread crumbs that Minnesota Hansels and Gretels leave behind when they spend the summer months in their former home state. This discussion leads me to wonder whether a snowbird tax might legally be avoided anyway. Consider, for example, a scenario where those who own summer residences in Minnesota gave the residence away to their children and simply rented them back during the months that they wish to reside there. The law must make a distinction between a partial-year resident and a simple visitor, or else I would suppose that it would cast too wide a net or fail on constitutional grounds. When the estate tax exemptions were lower, this strategy may not have worked well, as the gift might consume too much of the available exemption. With the increased federal gift tax exemptions available, however, it would seem possible to gift away a Minnesota residence into a trust or family partnership of some kind, and then rent the residence for the term that one would like to use it. So long as a former resident remains outside of the property tax rolls, I would guess that the state would have a hard time claiming any form of residency that would allow them to impose the income tax. But the details of Governor Daytons plan are not yet ironed out, so tax attorneys like me will have to wait to review the fine print. States are coming up with increasingly desperate measures to balance their budgets. Governor Daytons tax grab includes a proposal to increase Minnesotas already high personal income tax rate to 9.85 percent on income above $150,000 for singles and $250,000 for married filers. This would rank Minnesotas income tax rate among the top six in the nation. Look for other states to follow suit. These are going to be interesting times, but luckily many of the new federal tax laws are going to give estate planners leeway to give their clients options that would otherwise not be there in a more restrictive estate and gift tax environment.

35B ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 8, 2013 deaRPharmacistSlippery Elm Soothes Stomach Problemsby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: Ive dealt with stomach problems all my life. Sometimes its hard to eat, but I am under physician care. What natural remedy can soothe my tummy when its hard to eat? WC, Denver, Colorado Probiotics are fundamental to digestive health. And a diet free of common food allergens is in order. Something like slippery elm could help. Known as Ulmus fulva to herbalists, the mucilage from the inner bark of the tree provides extensive nutrition and easy-to-digest complex carbs. Slippery elm forms a slick gel coating and soothes everything it comes in contact with including your mouth, throat, stomach and intestines. It could help you with acid reflux, ulcerative colitis, gastritis, chronic pancreatitis, constipation/diarrhea and ulcers. It may support tissue regeneration for people with leaky gut syndrome (aka excessive intestinal permeability). A bad cough or bronchitis may respond to the soothing properties of slippery elm. Slippery elm is sold as tablets/capsules, liquid herbal extracts and lozenges. The lozenges are nice for sore throats. Health food stores carry powder which is basically just ground up inner bark of the tree. There are coarse and fine powders; coarse is needed to make topical poultices which help cuts, bruises and achy joints, such as that from gout. The fine powder can be eaten as a gruel (pronounced like cruel but with a g). Slippery elm contains calcium, manganese, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, zinc, beta-carotene, vitamin C and plenty of B vitamins. Children, adults and the elderly can eat this when recuperating from an illness, having trouble digesting or holding down food or wasting. Think of it as Mother Natures Ensure. The recipe for slippery elm gruel consists of about one tablespoonful fine powder and enough hot water to make a thin, smooth paste. The amount of water used is up to your personal taste. I use one-half cup myself and blend it together. Ill confess right now, its slimy anyway you make it, but thats the point. Sweeten it with organic honey, agave, maple syrup or stevia and flavor it with with cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon rind or vanilla. Go for the consistency of cream of wheat. Once made, the dosage varies tremendously. Some say eat the whole thing in one sitting, other experts suggest a tablespoon every hour until you can eat solid food again. Perhaps consider your weight, age and severity of malnutrition as well as response. Ask your doctor if this wonderful remedy in any form is approved because there are individual considerations such as your current health status and drug regimen. Some people are allergic to elm pollen, making this a no-no. Other naturally-occurring components in slippery elm include beta-sitosterol, campestrol and a little tannin (which aggravates kidney stones). I couldnt find documented interactions except a theoretical one that says it may render meds and supplements less active, so separate administration of slippery elm from important drugs by two hours.

36B ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 8, 2013 Eden Energy MedicineDouble Your Energy Instantlyby Karen L. Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAMLHave you ever wondered why a baby learns so much more quickly after he/she begins to crawl? The answer is simple: because their energies begin to cross over. Since the right side of your brain controls the left side of your body and vice versa, the motion of crawling creates a cross over pattern intended to stay with us throughout our lives. Why? If energy is not crossing, than energy is flowing vertically, a condition in EEM known as homolateral resulting in access to only 50 percent of your energetic flow. By crossing energies, you regain 100 percent of your energy. As humans evolved, the majority of time was spent outside in nature, enabling electromagnetic forces from the earth to enter our bodies through a point on the bottom of our foot known as Kidney 1 point, the beginning of our Kidney meridian, thus resulting in energy flowing across our bodies. As cultures evolved, close proximity to nature diminished, reflected in our environment today shoes with synthetic soles blocking the K 1 point; living in high-rise buildings surrounded by electromagnetic frequencies; holding cell-phones; using computers and microwaves and being isolated from nature; all of which caused our energy to flow vertically. For example, experiencing pain on one side and not the other is usually an indication of homolateral patterning. The exercise of cross crawl (part of the five-minute routine) restores crossing the bodys energy and only takes one minute a day. Learn the exercise quickly as follows: 1. Assume homolateral. We assume a homolateral energy pattern since each person cant be checked. Step One: Stand and begin marching in place, lifting the right arm with the right leg and then the left arm with the left leg while breathing deeply. Do this 12 times Step Two: While standing, swing the right arm to touch the left leg simultaneously and then swing your left arm to touch the right leg simultaneously while breathing deeply. Do this 12 times Step Three: Do Step One again followed by Step Two again. Repeat this pattern a total of three times. Step Four: After the three sets of homolateral followed by cross over patterning, do an additional 24 to 36 crossover patterns (the Step Two protocol). Done you are crossed. If you do the cross-over patterning each day for one minute, your energy should stay crossed and you will feel much better! 2. Adaptation if you are unable to stand and march: You may adapt this exercise to sitting or lying. If sitting, just touch the same sides of your body with your hand and leg, lifting your leg off the floor is possible, followed by crossing your right arm to left leg. If lying down, the same applies. Have fun with your energy. Send me your questions. Next weeks topic will be chronic headaches! 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. Mom And Me by Lizzie and PryceLizzie and Pryce answer your questions and give advice about aging concerns from a two-generational perspective. A mother and daughter team, Lizzie is a retired RN and health educator, and Pryce is a licensed psychotherapist in private practice who specializes in the care of elders and people with chronic illnesses. Dear Mom & Me, Over the years I often wondered why my husband chose to marry me. It hasnt been wedded bliss for fifty years, but I have finally decided why. My husband bosses me around like a child. I never initiate anything because he always does everything for me. He does what he wants, gets what he wants and I have never complained. I realize now I have no personality, no interest, and no opinions; even when I am sick, he tells me how I feel. This arrangement has always been exactly what he wanted and, rather than argue, I just went along to get along. Our two daughters are like their father. They argue a lot with him and rebelled a lot, but they both boss their husbands around just like their father has done to me. Our sons-n-law are both fed up; they have had it and want out of this family. My husband is completely mystified and cant understand why. Please tell me what has happened? Vivian Dear Vivian, You are a passive follower, but maybe a victim of your own social conditioning. Men were the leaders and they were considered to be so much more intelligent, they made the decisions, women were supposed to keep the house and care for the children. But times have changed. Your daughters may have inherited your husbands personality type, and with more progressive thinking that women can do anything, some have taken it to extremes. Some women are so aggressive their husbands just get fed up being pushed around, so they leave. The pendulum for some has just gone too far. Marriage counseling is a suggestion for your daughters and their husbands. So far as you and your husband are concerned, I doubt that change can ever happen. You have tolerated it for fifty years. Accept the fact that he will never change, because I dont think he ever will.

Medicare and most insurances acce p ted. Book y our a pp ointment toda y online : Dr. DaveTicksby Dr. Dave HepburnI open my bedroom curtain and there it is every time: Mount Finlayson, looming defiantly, as if to say Dave, come lay your fins on my mount, son. We have a symbiotic/ parasitic relationship, Fin and I, whereby he hovers over the spectacular Bear Mountain golf course, keeping an intense Sauron eye on my golfballs, (which Ive stored in several bushes, fescue and deer rectums). I, in turn, scratch his spine with my feet. Should I so much as whisper mountain to Leo, my nimble, fluffy, wee white Havanese pup, he breaks immediately into four cartwheels followed by two summersaults and ends by hurtling himself into his Tongan fire/whirling dervish/ pee pee dance of joy. So we climb/drag ourselves to the summit, where we celebrate our healthy decision to have made this climb by opening a duffle bag of Ding Dongs, Ho Hos, Twinkies and Ring Ding Juniors, the Hostess hall of fame. My initial health concerns with making this daily jaunt involved shattered tendons, ligaments and skulls. But, it turns out, theres a worse medical menace lurking up there (Gary Bettman excluded). One evening while petting Leo, my wife pulled at a lump as wives are wont to do with normally lumpless Havanese, and lo and behold, she held in her hand, much to her chagrin... a tick. The tick also appeared relatively chagrined, in a ticked off tick kind of way. Tick! she shrieked so shriekedly that even ticks peacefully grazing in the pastures of Finlayson glanced up. The tick who had been enjoying a course of canine corpuscles was promptly sent hurtling through the kitchen, where it landed unceremoniously on the garburator and was instantly pureed to tick heaven. While observing this tick hurtling towards the sink, accompanied by shrieks and profanity by both the tosser and the tossee, I decided to check my own carcass out for beasts mid-feasts. Sure enough, I found one, and then another. Now, as a doctor, when I peel odious disease-bearing, blood-sucking organisms from my epidermis, the screaming schoolgirl section of my brain (known as the Rob Sealey lobe) screams out to the Oompa Loompas in my frontal lobe... panic freakin stations! So I stagger to my medical books, thumbing madly past tetanus, tendons and tea-stained teeth, to try and find what illness I will die of tonight. No doubt a different illness than the one that was most assuredly going to claim my life last week when I found a bump on my uvula. So here is everything you and Leo and my wife and her husband should know about ticks. Turns out ticks are nasty and getting nastier. The little bug buggers host a host of diseases for human and Havanese, and they are all on the rise. In addition to the infamous Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever (RMSF), there are some bad ones that end in osis. Babesiosis, ehrlichiosis, granulocytic anaplasmosis. I dont recall learning these specific diseases in medical school, perhaps because I was playing Space Invaders while hungover in the back row. But I would also suggest that any MD (Master of Deception) who says that they remember these diseases are, most respectfully, pathological liars and possibly tax evaders. But I do recall that most words with osis on the tail mean that it will be on a test. RMSF is not just limited to Denver or Banff. A woman in the Carolinas recently died of RMSF. Lyme disease is not limited to Lyme, Connecticut. Babesiosis is not limited to Pam Anderson. In fact babesioisis is also having a real heyday in, of all places, Connecticut. (Strike Yale from the list of future schools to whom I will decline deanship when offered). So disease-bearing ticks can be found surviving and thriving from coast to coast, Cleveland included. Deet really doesnt work, despite what the Deet folks say. If you do get a tick bite, I would suggest you dont start self diagnosing. Well Ralph, it looks to me like the three-legged black-spotted deer tick and it appears to be carrying Eastern erlichlochosis. Frank, you just pulled off two legs and a tail already and you spelled ehrlichiosis incorrectly. Were going in. Bring the tick in to a tick lab and have it vivisected. So now the only way my wife will allow Leo and I back up Finlayson is if I wear chainmail and Leo wears a sucky knitted dog coat so thick he looks like a caribou. Leo doesnt care whether he gets one or not but Im a little twitchy about anything that brushes up against me, sort of like a... nervous tick.

If you are unhappy with your current situation, while you cannot change your husband, perhaps there are things you can do to change yourself so you can find more joy and contentment in life. It is never too late to explore change and growth for yourself. For your adult children, they need to find their own way. It is probably true they learned their interpersonal and relationship skills at the feet of your husband. However, exploring growth, if any, is their decision.

Agency Urges Pet Owners To Vaccinate Dogs Against Parvo-VirusLee County Domestic Animal Services (LCDAS) is urging all pet owners to vaccinate their dogs against parvo-virus. The agency has been investigating numerous cases of animal neglect, including dogs that have contracted the virus and were left to suffer. The parvo-virus is highly contagious, expensive to treat and often fatal despite treatment, said LCDAS veterinarian, Suzanne Vazzana. LCDAS recommends owners with new puppies to see their veterinarian for vaccinations beginning at six to eight weeks of age with boosters given every three weeks until puppies are 16 weeks old. Owners should continue to follow their veterinarians recommended schedule for vaccines to ensure protection against this deadly virus and limit their pets exposure to questionable areas. Parvo-virus is spread from dog to dog by direct or indirect contact with their feces. It can be especially severe in puppies that are not protected by maternal antibodies or vaccination. The common signs are severe vomiting and diarrhea. The virus can live in organic matter, such as soil, for over a year. Victims of this virus die of dehydration as the virus attacks the intestinal lining. It is important to animal shelters that the public vaccinate their pets, as these are the same pets that might end up at the shelter if they get lost. LCDAS has taken a proactive role in the community and vaccinates all dogs entering the shelter against the parvo-virus. More information about proper pet care and a list of local veterinary, emergency and low-cost clinics, is available at http://www.leelostpets.com.
