For additional images from the event, see page 3 Sanibel Mayor Kevin Ruane helps serve up the pastaCaptiva Civic Associations ABC CelebrationWhen the Captiva Civic Associations ABC event began in the 1970s, it was a rummage sale in the yard of the Captiva Community Center generating a couple hundred dollars and an excuse to have some fun. The A stood for Attic. B stood for Basement. The C was for Closet. And the idea was for Captiva residents to pull unusual items out of their house or condo, bring them to the rummage sale and have a good time while raising money for the organization. As Sharon Brace, who has witnessed lots of ABC events over the years, remarked, No one out here on this island has had either a basement or what anyone up north would consider a closet. But everyone sure has had a lot of fun over the years. It has grown into the islands premiere social event, and a major fundraiser, she added. They now call it the ABC Celebration. It has evolved from a rummage sale to a live auction raising tens of thousands of dollars. Fun on the Captiva Community Center lawn has transformed into a multicourse sit-down dinner at The Sanctuary Golf Club with cocktails, live music and dancing. But this is still basically a party and the biggest get-together we have for the community, said Paul Garvey, the civic associations director. Our main purpose is still to have fun. Invitations have already been mailed out for the 2013 ABC Celebration, continued on page 2 The cover photo used on invitations to the 2013 ABC Celebration, stressing the renovation and expansion of the Captiva Civic Association Community Center that will benefit from fundraising at the event

This year is exceptional, Garvey noted, because we are looking to raise money to renovate and expand the Captiva Community Center while, at the same time, celebrating a major victory for preservation of mangrove wetlands on the island. The Captiva Community Center renovation and expansion includes: Re-roofing the center complex. About a 50 percent expansion of the centers meeting hall, enabling additional cultural events such as small concerts to be held on the island. Updating the halls lighting and sound, as well as enlarged and updated kitchen and bathroom facilities. New space to house the Captiva Historical Society and its museum. Expansion of the Captiva branch of the Lee County Library. A covered veranda and a courtyard with native shade trees and vegetation at the front entrance of the complex. Improvements to the Lee County Sheriffs deputy housing. As for the second part of this years Celebration, Civic Association members will savor a recent U.S. Army Corps of Engineers final ruling halting construction of luxury condos that would have impacted about 78 acres of mangrove wetlands on the northeastern tip of Captiva. The ruling was the culmination of an expensive battle against a developer waged for more than a decade at the local, state and federal levels by the Civic Association, the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation and the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. According to Brace, co-chair of the ABC dinner committee, the celebration will begin with an hour of open bar cocktails and hors doeuvres. One will be a Sanctuary signature treat honey sugar bacon, she said. Weve had it before, and it is back by popular demand. The reception will be followed by the highlight of the evening a live auction. Tommy Williams, auctioneer extraordinaire, will conduct the bidding. For those who havent seen him, Brace added, Williams is truly entertainment all unto himself. More than a dozen items up for bids include: A pristine, 2007 Ford Escape with only 15,300 local miles, a V-6 engine, towing package, tan leather trim interiorcontinued on page 7 A ride on Chapel-By-The-Sea Pastor Tom Nymans Harley-Davidson is one of the ABC Celebration auction items A low-mileage, pristine 2007 Ford Escape is one of more than a dozen items that will be auctioned at this years 2013 ABC Celebration Mady Rohn, Sherry Isler and Shirley Stanton stuff envelopes that contain invitations for the 2013 ABC Celebration.

Churchill was born and lived in Lima, Ohio until 1995. A civil engineer by education, he worked in the asphalt paving business until retiring in 1995. He then sailed from western Lake Erie on his sailboat and landed on Captiva at the beginning of 1997. On the way in 1996, he took his first intensive two-week workshop at Maines Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in wire sculpture. In 1997, he started taking clay classes at BIG ARTS. During a two-week clay workshop at Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Aspen, Churchill created his first wild vessel and read the book Art and Fear, a book that proved to be transformational. Returning to Captiva in the fall of 1998, he entered his wild vessel in an open juried exhibit, Different Drummer, at BIG ARTS, and won an honorable mention award. Its been one big blur since then, with numerous workshops and exhibits, he said. Churchill is a valued member of the BIG ARTS community. He is a volunteer on the visual arts committee, serves as a board member, and he is a workshop instructor. His first love is papier-mch, but he works in numerous mediums.

Would you make a good citizen watchdog for Sanibel?(If so, you might want to lend us your support)Committee of the Islands is a hands-on watchdog and advocacy group, unique on the islands for what we strive for and what we do.

And if youve read this far we do it with the help of people like you Here are a few examples of what we mean Lets remember our history: In 1974 Lee County projected a population of 90,000 for Sanibel.

ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 22, 201314 Author And Neighbors Raise Money For FISHOn Sunday afternoon, February 10, neighbors came together to listen to Sanibels newest author Dan Perkins talk about helping FISH and the story of his first novel written here on Sanibel. Perkins wanted to give back to Sanibel, so he donated 40 percent of the proceeds of the sale of his book, The Brotherhood of the Red Nile, a Terrorist Perspective, to FISH. They do great things and I wanted to do something to encourage others to help this important organization, he said. Attendees had a chance to hear how Perkins came to write the story and also to hear a little bit of the story. I dont want to give away too much because I want you to buy the book and read it for yourself. Perkins ended his presentation by answering questions about the book. Most of the people at the book-signing party were not aware of how the book came to be. Perkins called it the story behind the story. One year ago, he was a new student in a class offered by BIG ARTS called Writing Mysteries and Thrillers. Perkins went back to visit the new class at BIG ARTS and spent some time telling them his story. Nancy Daversa, the instructor, said, I was hoping that Dan would come back and talk to the class about his writing progress in just 12 months. I was so pleased that he came, and when he gave me a signed copy of his book, I almost cried. Dan spent 20 minutes with my students and answered their questions and gave them encouragement; dont get ready to write, start writing tonight and see what you can do. Judy Harding bought the first book at the book-signing party. You can find more information about other book-signing appearances on Sanibel by going to the book website www.danperkinsatsanibel. com and clicking on the Appearances tab. You will also find a link that offers the first 50 pages of the book free to see if you like it. Perkins book is available at all bookstores on the island, at Baileys General Store and The Dunes pro shop.

15 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 22, 2013Tugboat Willy Celebrated As Well-loved, Iconic Islanderby Barbara LinstromOn Sunday, he played a song at the American Legion, barefoot as usual and drinking Budweiser. He was doing just ducky as he wouldve said, recalls Gator, who was bartending that day. He stayed later than usual and was having a good time. The next night, January 28, the 72-year-old musician, Marine, father, past commander of the Legion and friend to multitudes passed on in his sleep at his long-time Dinkins Bayou home. On February 6, about 160 people gathered at American Legion Post 123 on Sanibel to honor and celebrate Tugboat Willy G. Jones as a well-loved, one-of-a-kind islander. We lost another one of the original Timmys Nook family, said John Dickerson, who first met Willy back in the 70s. His name will be added to the list of 60 family members out back where the original Timmys Nook sign and bar are. Now, there are only 14 of us left. He was also remembered for his Southern charm, musical prowess and sharp wit. Willy was a fantastic magnet for us all, said Walking Stick Mike, who knew Willy since they both lived in houseboats at Jensens Marina in the 70s. And, he lived life exactly how he wanted it. If you didnt like it, then he would just say, shove off. But look at all of us and how much we loved him. You have to askhow such a cantankerous, grumpy person could have so many beautiful friends? Born in Savannah, Georgia on July 31, 1941, Willy spent part of his childhood living on Captiva Island and always harbored a love of the islands. At age 17, he joined the U.S. Marine Corps. Selected as an outstanding Marine by his drill instructor at boot camp, Willy first served in the Marine Corps Ceremonial Drill Team at the Iwo Jima Monument at Arlington Cemetery in 1960. We were bunkmates and served together there every Tuesday we did a ceremonial parade, said Mason Scott, who attended the memorial from his home in Northcontinued on page 16 Tugboat Willy back in the day on the beach with friends Personal Chef Terence Galvin is one of many island musicians who Tugboat Willy Jones encouraged and jammed with.

Tell a friend.From page 15Tugboat WillyFort Myers. Willy was very proud to be a Marine. And like all of us, he was glad when he got out. As a Marine, he served honorably as a member of the Presidential Honor Guard at Camp David under the Eisenhower administration. He also served on the Expeditionary Force during the Cuban Missile Crisis in the Bay of Pigs and in the Mediterranean. After an honorable discharge, Willy attended Georgia State University in Atlanta, where he studied English and he later met Emily Peavy, whom he married. They had a son, Michael Eric Jones in 1969. Through an oil company, he got a job as a tugboat captain on the Mississippi River and earned his moniker, Tugboat Willy. He always talked about coming back to the islands. When Eric was 5, we came to Tween Waters Inn and it was just the most glorious place. And, we went to Timmys Nook and had a few beers. He was in his element. He was such a water person. He was a superb swimmer and diver, said Emily. After divorcing, Willy moved back to his beloved islands and eventually settled in Dinkins Bayou where he established The Jug, a bar under his stilt home that was frequented by musicians and his friends. Known for teaching such notable island talent as Corky, lead singer/guitarist with The Troublestarters, Willy was respected for sharing his musical skill and his word-smithing talent that inspired him to write his own lyrics. His son, Eric, and ex-wife Emily attended the memorial at the Legion, where islanders and friends from North and South Carolina and Georgia recounted their admiration and love for Willy. His friends meant the world to him, said Emily. He always cherished his friends and his son. Liliana Mancini Ventura, a private chef who first met Willy 19 years ago on Captiva and was a dear friend and confidante, recalled how much he loved Sanibel, the blues and his son. Most of all, he loved serving his country as a Marine. He was very intellectual; he loved to cook and to read. And, he made the best cornbread in the world, said Liliana. His son, Eric, an Environmental Scientist specializing in water quality, came from Wisconsin, where he recently moved with his wife, Yolanda, an OB/ GYN, and their two daughters, Jade and Hali. Its been such a good experience to see how well loved he was in his community. Its really something how many people have shared stories with me and offered to help out. Its a great community, said Eric. Willy is also survived by his brother, Bob Jones; his aunt, Virginia Hinely; and his uncle, Virgil Bacon. WILLIAM A. GOLISZESKIA life lost... I have lost a life not my own. But it would have been easier to have lost my own life than to have lost the life I loved more than my own.

IN LOVING MEMORY Missions Conference Welcomes SaintSanibel Community Church will be hosting its annual Missions Conference from February 27 through March 3. Jamie Saint is this years guest speaker at all services on Sunday, March 3. He is the son of missionary and author Steve Saint, who wrote the bestseller The End of the Spear, a testimony to his fathers missionary efforts in Ecuador. The book was made into a movie of the same title. Jamie Saint works with an organization called ITEC, which specializes in developments that improve missionary efforts and empower indigenous peoples to become self-sustaining (www.itecusa. org). Such inventions include a dentists chair that can be folded into a backpack and hiked into the jungles, medical training materials and a car called The Maverick that can fly. Join us throughout the week and on Sunday morning as we celebrate missions locally and globally. Sanibel Community Church is located at 1740 Periwinkle Way (next to Jerrys Market). For more information, call Brad at 472-2684 or visit www.sanibelchurch. com. Jamie Saint Missions flying car, The Maverick FISH Helping Island Neighbors FISH of Sanibel, Inc. has been running a Helping Hands program for many years. A recent client case study shows how the not-for-profit organization is making a difference in the lives of many Sanibel and Captiva neighbors. Roger is a 40-year-old single man who has lived and worked full time in the service industry on Sanibel for the past 12 years. Recently he was diagnosed with severe digestive issues that required extensive surgery. After surgery in July, he was unable to return to work for seven weeks. He quickly exhausted his small savings to pay some of his bills, but was unable to pay his rent and utilities for one month. Roger has no family locally and does not have anyone he can reach out to for help. Because he had borrowed medical equipment from FISH prior to his surgery, Roger was aware of the services FISH could provide. He contacted FISH and met with a social worker for an intake interview. After he completed the application and provided the required financial documentation, FISH was able to assist with his rent and utilities for that month. In addition, Roger also became a FISH Food Pantry client, and received assistance with transportation to his off-island doctors appointments. He has since returned to work and no longer needs assistance from FISH. He has expressed his appreciation to the staff and volunteers. The help I received from FISH truly made a huge difference in my time of crisis, he said. From time to time, we all need a little help from our friends. Thank you, FISH.

19 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 22, 2013Celebrate Calusa Heritage DayVisitors can arrive by water to the annual Calusa Heritage Day at Pineland on northwest Pine Island. Captiva Cruises is offering a ride from McCarthy Marina across Pine Island Sound to the docks at Tarpon Lodge on March 9. Coming by boat to Calusa Heritage Day creates an easy way for visitors and others on Sanibel and Captiva and even south Fort Myers near the Sanibel Causeway to enjoy a day on Pine Island Sound and also attend the event without the hassle of driving while also having a chance to learn about the Calusa people and early fishing cultures, said Cindy Bear, coordinator of Randell Research Center, which hosts the event. The boat will depart McCarthy Marina at 9 a.m. Passengers will get a narrated tour of the harbor and its fish shacks and then have lunch at the Tarpon Lodge on Pineland before attending the festival. The lodge is across the street from the Calusa site. The boat will return passengers to Captiva after an two-hour stay on Pine Island. Among the activities at the event is the Calusa Tasting, where oysters are served up along with chili peppers and papayas. Both plants were grown in home gardens thousands of years ago at Pineland. Speakers will talk on topics ranging from the evidence for Ponce de Leons meetings with the Calusa to the evidence of Floridas earliest people dating to 12,000 years ago located at Little Salt Springs. A special postmark has been created to commemorate the day, and at the postal station, attendees can have their cards and letters posted. An ethnobotany tent will feature information on the use of the plants by native people and experts will be hand to demonstrate how to make cordage and baskets. Calusa Heritage Day will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (GPS users should input Bokeelia instead of Pineland.) Admission is $5 for adults, free to children; Randell Center members are admitted free. Parking, including handicapped parking, is available on site. Free water is available throughout the day; participants are encouraged to bring a refillable water bottle. Food is for sale by Pine Islandbased Little Lillies Island Deli and Mel Meos fish wagon.

20 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 22, 2013 Center Hosts Rachel Carson Distinguished Lecture Weekendby Kharli Rose Anticipation, awe and wonder filled the air as beloved poet Mary Oliver prepared to deliver the Center for Environmental and Sustainability Educations Rachel Carson Distinguished Lecture. Nearly 400 people were in attendance in the pews at St. Michael and All Angels Church, in the overflow seating in the parish hall and at the jumbo screen outdoors under the stars. Center Director Peter Blaze Corcoran observed that no matter where people were, they were engrossed in the reading. It was wonderful to see that poetry lives! Corcoran said. Along with the public, Florida Gulf Coast University students, center supporters, members of the board of advisors, and center staff absorbed Olivers descriptive connections to the natural world, which were sometimes personal and at other times universal, inquisitive and inspiring. The annual event seeks to engage the public in discussions on sustainability, ethics, democracy and literature with scholars and public intellectuals. Oliver was invited to speak because her lyrical poetry has inspired a deep appreciation for the wildness and beauty of nature. Her poems included those from her recent publication, A Thousand Mornings, and others from forthcoming publications. At the lecture, FGCU President Wilson Bradshaw presented Mary Oliver with the Rachel Carson Award. The center gives its highest award, in the form of a conch shell, to a recipient who embodies Rachel Carsons contributions most relevant to the center public policy based on sound science and ethics, active participation of an ecologically-literate citizenry, and appreciation of the natural world through the literary arts and environmental education. The following evening was full of food, fun and fundraising to support the centers mission. Harpists and a violinist created a magical scene for guests to mingle and share ideas with one another at the beachfront home of the Peter and Mallory Haffenreffer. Gifts to the center are being matched by the Haffenreffers up to a total of $12,000. Renowned poet Alison Hawthorne Deming and center co-chairs Mary Evelyn Tucker and David Orr made brief remarks just after sunset and announced the Haffenreffer Challenge. Proceeds of the Rachel Carson Distinguished Lecture Weekend fund scholarly publications, student employment and ongoing educational events. For more information on matching contributions to the center, call Director Peter Blaze Corcoran at 590-7166, email cese@fgcu.edu or visit www.fgcu.edu/cese.

21 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 22, 2013Sanibel-Captiva Audubon Presents A Look At The Lives Of Snowy PloversJoin the Sanibel-Captiva Audubon Society on Thursday, February 28 at 7:30 p.m. at The Community House, 2173 Periwinkle Way, for their final presentation of 2013 entitled A Look At The Lives Of Snowy Plovers, to be presented by SCCF biologist Amanda Bryant. The Snowy plover is a small wader in the plover bird family. It breeds in Ecuador, Peru, Chili, the Caribbean and Sanibel. The Snowy plover is 5.9 to 6.7 inches long. Its underparts are grayish brown and the breast markings are black in summer and otherwise brown. Its breast band is never complete and usually just appears as dark lateral patches on the sides of the breast. The bird looks pretty much like the sand and shells on our beaches, which is exactly where it makes its nest. The nest is built on the rack line in a groundscrape midway between the ocean and the dunes. Three to five eggs are laid and incubate for 27 to 28 days. As the birds are precocial (mature and mobile from the moment of birth), the birds feed themselves and return to the parent for warmth and safety. With this in mind, remember the rains of the week of June 23, 2012 and Tropical Storm Debby? What do you suppose happened to the new born Snowy plovers? Join us for an update.

ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 22, 201322 Homeschoolers From Collier Take Outdoor Pledge At DingAn excited group of 29 homeschoolers from Collier County recently embarked on an outdoor adventure in the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge. The students and their parent teachers spent a warm February day at the refuge to experience nature first hand and learn the importance of conservation. The homeschoolers started their field trip with a tram tour through the refuge on Wildlife Drive, guided by naturalist Don Parsons of Tarpon Bay Explorers. Parsons encouraged the group to not only look for the larger, more visible wildlife in the refuge, but to also keep an eye out for the little things as well. He offered the group a leaf from a false-mastic tree that upon close examination, contained white wax-like excretions on the surface that covered psyllid nymphs embedded in small cup-shaped excavations. The trip included a walk among the mangrove forest, where students marveled at pocketsized mangrove tree crabs crawling up and down the trees they inhabit. The next stop was lunch in the refuges education center classroom, followed by a nature journaling hike with ranger Toni Westland. The students all signed a U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Prescription For Nature and pledged to Get Outside More! Refuge staff and Tarpon Bay Explorers thanked the Collier County homeschoolers for focusing on nature and the great outdoors.

23 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 22, 2013 CROW Case Of The Week: Florida Softshellby Patricia MolloyShe is healing faster than any other turtle I have treated here at CROW, said Dr. Heather. As the largest of softshell turtles (often growing upwards of 25 inches), the Florida softshell (Apalone ferox) paradoxically has the smallest territory. The flat turtle with skin covering its shell can be found in canals, streams, lakes and roadside ditches in Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina; most, however, reside in the Sunshine State, happily feeding on fish, insects and even water fowl. The distinctive leathery skin covering their carapace (shell) allows the reptiles to absorb oxygen through their skin when underwater while also ridding their body of carbon dioxide. Additionally, their long, snorkel-like noses allow them to breach the surface of a body of water for a quick breath of fresh air. Several weeks ago, a Florida softshell was found by the side of the road after being hit by a car. She arrived with a depression fracture of the carapace, exposing the tender flesh below, and a bleeding laceration to the right hind toe. We took her to surgery and amputated part of her toe which took care of the bleeding. The surgery went well and she was dry docked (kept out of the water) for a week, said Dr. Aundria West, DVM intern. The wildlife vets flushed the wound on her carapace daily, but as a softshell, a patch cannot be placed over the defect as is often the procedure for hard shelled reptiles like gopher tortoise. She was placed on a diet of Reptimin, a supplement that is high in protein and the essential vitamins and minerals that turtles require, which she ate with fish and shrimp. Additionally, she was given antibiotics and pain medications to combat her injuries. Dr. Heather added, We also placed a plus-spectrum light on her [which more closely emulates natural sunlight than others] and increased the tank temperature and room temperature. I like to see them around 83 degrees because it really promotes an ideal speed of wound healing. As soon as her carapace is healing well enough, we will return her to her home. I feel like she will heal even better in the wild.

ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 22, 201324 Cold, Windy And Few Optionsby Capt. Matt MitchellThe strongest cold front so far this winter came through over the weekend dropping temperatures about as low as they go in our part of the world. Add to that more than a full day of near-record rainfall a few days prior to the front and all but the most die-hard anglers stayed off the water for the majority of the week. Even during periods of cold and windy weather it is still possible to have a comfortable and productive day on the water. If conditions are nasty, start by planning to stay within a few miles of the dock. Dont make any huge, open water runs that will get your passengers overly cold or worse yet wet and cold before they even get to wet a line. The more time I fish the more I realize most days you dont have to go that far to catch quality fish and luckily for me there are many great fishing spots there are within 10 minutes of the canal where I keep my boat. Getting out fishing as a front approaches can make for some of the best action this time of year if youre willing to deal with increasingly rough conditions. Fish sense and feel the change in the barometer and generally feed hard with approaching bad weather. This proved true at the first stop of a Saturday morning trip with only a few hours before the front arrived. We caught three quality snook in the 30-inch range and one 24 inch trout, all within about 30 minutes. Then the wind picked up and started gusting over 25 mph. The shoreline got too rough and unfortunately we had to move on. We then spent some time bouncing around close to home trying to find another hot bite somewhere out of the wind. With the increasing wind our choices quickly got fewer and fewer. We struck out at a few more stops until we ended up in a well-known, very sheltered deadend deep water creek in St. James City. Windy days limit your options as an angler and reduce the places you can comfortably reach. That day I opted for a very short but rough open water crossing to get tucked away in the mangroves. The decision paid off and everyone stayed busy catching fish for the last hour or more of the trip. Though every other fish seemed to be a mangrove snapper, the little honey hole produced a great mixed bag of other species including trout, black drum, jacks, ladyfish and even a total bonus, a little tarpon. Heading out on the next day on the backside of the cold front, I had very low expectations. With high temperatures only reaching the mid 50s and a persistent strong north wind, the days fishing proved to be so much better than I expected. We found good action on redfish, sheepshead and trout. The super low tide really had the fished bunched up and when ran into fish, the action was wide open at times, despite the conditions. This drastic shift we experienced in the weeks weather was really not such a bad thing. Going fishing on a weekend this time of year and seeing hardly any boats out was quite enjoyable. Even though the front brought less than ideal fishing conditions for several days, it should also help to break up and blow away the red tide that has been out along the beaches. It will also move our fish to where they should be this time of year. Capt. Matt Mitchell has been fishing local waters since he moved to Sanibel in 1980. He now lives in St. James City and works as a back country fishing guide. If you have comments or questions email captmattmitchell@aol.com.

ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 22, 201326 An Excellent Day Of FishingSteve Boudreau, who recently earned his mechanical engineering degree, decided to visit his grandmother Marian Denk on Sanibel for a weekend of fishing before attempting to land a career in engineering. A bait fish was all Boudreau needed to catch a huge redfish which measured a whopping 38 inches not long before another redfish hit the other line. Gram, get the net! This is unbelievable, he said of the second one caught, which measured 37 inches. After taking pictures and releasing the fish, Boudreau and Denk took a little break. Thirty minutes later, their fishing pole bent down into the water again and produced yet another redfish. And then another. With persistence and a lot of muscle, Boudreau succeeded in hauling in a fifth redfish, a 40-inch beauty. Now, Boudreau is off to land a job.

27 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 22, 2013 Sanibel Sea School Opens Ocean Discovery Center At South Seasby Jeff LysiakWhen the Sanibel Sea School first opened a satellite campus on the grounds of South Seas Island Resort on Captiva during the summer of 2010, the schools executive director, Dr. Bruce Neill, was hoping that the partnership would be successful not just from a financial standpoint, but also from a fundamental point of view. I was hoping this was going to be the perfect marriage and it has been, said Dr. Neill. We would be able to offer programs and activities for guests at South Seas, which would generate additional income for us, while at the same time stimulating an interest in learning more about our mission, which is to improve the oceans future, one person at a time. According to Dr. Neill, the partnership with South Seas has worked remarkably well, with Sanibel Sea School offering resort guests a variety of conservationfocused programs for children, teens and adults. The school also takes part in the resorts self-guided scavenger hunt, called Scout About. On February 8, Sanibel Sea School opened a new section to its Captiva campus, an interactive Ocean Discovery Center adjacent to its current space at South Seas. Occupying 297 square feet, the colorful corner space contains: Three tanks filled with a variety of marine life, including sea urchins, sea stars, a hermit crab, puffer fish, sea robins, pipe fish, a sea horse, pinfish and a blue crab A live fiddler crab habitat A darkened tunnel that kids and adults can crawl through, decorated with glow-in-the-dark undersea critters A pair of touch drawers containing: Samples of mollusks, fish, crustaceans and echinoderms (sand dollars). Skulls of a coyote, bobcat, raccoon, otter and skunks as well as a box turtle shell.

As the Latin name implies, the plant is water-loving and umbrella-shaped. More flattering common names for this member of the carrot family include manyflower marshpennywort and whorled marshpennywort. The circular, or orbicular, scalloped leaves are shiny and leathery, resembling small lily pads. According to some sources, the leaves can be used as a salad green or potherb; however, other sources caution that the leaves might cause nausea in some people. Dollar weed flourishes in moist or over-watered areas in lawns, the leaves usually reaching about the size of a halfdollar. However, near ponds, rivers, or marshes, the leaves grow larger and the stems longer. Small white or greenish flowers appear in spherical clusters on short stems. The plant spreads by long creeping underground or floating stems that can form dense mats. Leaves grow singly atop vertical stems attached to the leaf center. When dollar weed crops up in a lawn, a homeowner has to decide: Edible pretty native groundcover, or a weed to eradicate? If eradication is the goal, bear in mind that the enterprise might be time-consuming and costly. Pulling it out by hand is easy, but be sure to remove all of the underground stems. Even so, the opportunistic plant might come back. Less irrigation and proper drainage will make the area less inviting. Another option is to just enjoy this maintenance-free volunteer.

29 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 22, 2013 by Mark Bird WestallMost people, if they take a casual look at the vultures and condors of the western hemisphere, will come away with the opinion that they are, at least, a little bit related on the evolutionary Tree of Life to the vultures of Africa. Even though they are separated by the Atlantic Ocean, they must be related, right? I mean, they look so much alike and they eat the same disgusting type of food. As a side note, I always get a kick out of people who say, Oh, gross! Theres a vulture. Those things are nasty; they eat dead meat! And I have to reply, Excuse me, unless youre a vegetarian, what did you have for dinner last night? But the scientists have found out from DNA work that these two separate groups of carrion-feeders are really not very closely related at all. The vultures and condors of this hemisphere are actually more closely related to the storks found in North, Central and South America, including our very own wood stork. If you look more closely at our stork, he already has a featherless head (an advantage for future carrion-feeders so they wont get any neck-feathers all mucked-up when they stick their head inside the body cavity of a dead animal). Next, if you could somehow shorten his bill, shorten his neck, shorten his legs and most importantly get him to be able to eat rotten food and not get sick and die, well, youd have yourself a vulture. I believe how this was able to happen is that there was a niche available in this hemisphere for a vulture-like carrionfeeder, but no existing species was occupying that niche at the time, so an existing species already present in the western hemisphere gene pool slowly evolved into that niche. Now, this evolution did not happen overnight. The forces of natural selection usually, though not necessarily always, work slowly over time using mutations as the driving force. The first, most major, improvement would have had to be the ability to digest contaminated flesh. Once that advantage was realized, the individual who had that trait might become more successful by not having to rely solely on fresh meat. In ensuing generations, if young that carried that trait just happened to produce young with shorter bills, necks or legs, they would still have had an improved chance of survival because as they became less adapted at foraging on live prey like wood storks do, they could increasingly resort to feeding on those creatures that were already dead. And since no other existing species was occupying that niche, the new species was able to flourish because it was evolving into a niche where competition was at a minimum at that point in time. Isnt that cool? So, for the last few weeks, I have been bemoaning the plight of endangered species such as wood storks and manatees and how their non-game status affects their perceived value in this country. But I have also written before complaining that the problem I have with animal lovers is that they cannot grasp the concept that death is just as much an important part of life on this planet as life is. So if I am going to propose that death plays such an important role, shouldnt I be willing to accept that some species are supposed to go extinct? Does it really matter if they go the way of the dinosaur? Isnt extinction part of the natural process? Well, the answer is yes, but only to a degree; particularly, I believe, when it comes to the continued survival of the human species. Let me try to explain my viewpoint. Ever since life started on this planet, it has been estimated that millions of new species have evolved, struggled for survival, sometimes flourishing for eons and then, eventually, going extinct... just like our endangered species. What I believe is constant in this scenario is not the species, but rather the niche that a particular species occupies at any given point in time. Some niches may be represented by a particular species, or group of species, for a long period of time (such as the time of the dinosaurs), only to eventually disappear completely. With the previous niches becoming abandoned, life continues on by flowing in another direction and occupying a different series of niches (such as the rise of mammals). But during that particular period of time, it is all these different life forms, occupying the various niches; pushing and pulling against one another; that a stability is achieved. Some call it the Balance of Nature; I see it as a sort of yin/yang thing. If something happens to disrupt that stability, life falls into chaos continued on page 35 Birds Eye ViewWood Storks, Vultures And Condors And The Niche That They Occupy ZAGAT ZAGAT.COM R ated by : Fish Tacos!

34 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 22, 2013 Shell Islands Garden Club Art CollaborationThe Shell Islands Garden Club and the Sanibel-Captiva Art League have planned a unique grouping of talents featuring art from members of the art league paired with floral interpretations from members of the garden club. The collaboration is called Art in Bloom. Fifteen artists will have their paintings in the exhibit with 16 garden club members who drew lots to use a painting for their artistic floral creations. Art in Bloom is a popular feature in museums around the country. The Sanibel collaboration will be held in the lobby at the Sanibel Public Library on March 13 and 14. At a recent meeting, Debbie Hughes, senior horticulturist of the Edison and Ford Winter Estates, demonstrated for the members of the garden club how she would integrate a floral arrangement with a work of art. She chose three paintings with different images; an old fashioned light bulb, a vase of flowers and a fanciful fish and put together three different floral arrangements showing her interpretations. The Shell Islands Garden Club is a membership of hands-in-the-dirt gardeners with interests in floral design, horticulture, conservation and local philanthropy. The Sanbel-Captiva Art League is in its 43rd year. Collectively, their mission is to create opportunities to create art, share art, support art education, and enhance the community artistically. Debbie Hughes, senior horticulturist, Edison and Ford Winter Estates, begins a demonstration designing a floral arrangement using an art piece for her inspirationFrom page 27Discovery CenterDebra Gomez. According to Dr. Neill, Gomez and interior designer Jamie Flynn were flown down from New York twice during renovations on the space. John Grey Painting contributed faux painting for the project as well. The old nature center that used to be here was more like a pet store it had a parrot, some birds, a rabbit, a guinea pig and a gopher tortoise named Amy, said Dr. Neill, who hopes to open five or six Sanibel Sea School satellite campuses across the country in the next decade. What we have done with this space is created an educational opportunity to really learn about the marine life out there in our oceans. While there is no admission fee to experience the Ocean Discovery Center, entry is limited to guests of South Seas Island Resort and Friends of Sanibel Sea School.

But usually (so far anyway), some life forms survive the chaos and the whole process starts all over again with new niches being occupied, eventually reaching another period of stability. As I write this column, it is estimated that today we may have around 8.7 million species on the planet. But there are those who would argue (Richard Leakey, for one; author of The Sixth Extinct) that there are as many species going extinct today as when the dinosaurs disappeared; except that this time, the massive extinctions are not being caused by an asteroid, but rather by humans exploiting the worlds existing species and resources with no consideration of the sustainability of that exploitation. Yes, species come and go, but our irresponsible behavior may steer all existing life on this planet closer and closer towards an undesirable chaos! I believe there has been a niche for intelligent life on this planet ever since the first living organism crawled up out of the primordial ooze millions of years ago. But look how long it took for the forces of mutations and natural selection, constantly molding and shaping the various life forms on this planet, until humans finally could evolve. What gets me into trouble with a lot of people (besides the whole natural selection thing), is that I am yet convinced that we are the end result. If we do not manage the worlds resources in a sustainable way, we may limit our own capability to survive; perhaps causing our own extinction. Therefore, it is in my best selfish interest that I try to help all life survive. And that is why I worry about those worthless endangered species. It may not matter to humans if they disappear, I just dont know. But do we really want to wait until theyre gone before we discover that they really were important?

ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 22, 201338 Attention Sanibel-Captiva Gardenerssubmitted by Dr. Phillip MarksThe 64th Master Gardener Lecture Series will continue on Thursday, March 7 at 10 a.m. at the Sanibel Library. The speaker will be John Sibley, owner of All Native Nursery. His program will feature over 50 live native plants which thrive on our islands. As he presents these plants, he will discuss the size, shape, color and flowers or berries associated with the specimens. He is literally bringing a demonstration botanical garden to our group. He will also sugggest design, planting and establishment of these plants. Sibley has finished several projects for the City of Sanibel and continues to maintain them. Several of the citys vegetation committee members have used his nursery for projects on their properties. Sibley is a knowledgeable and committed educator and is currently the president of the Lee County Native Plant Society and president of Florida Native Plant Nurseries. This is a rare opportunity to see up close and personal the many varieties of native plants -small trees, shrubs and bushes -carried by his nursery. He will include comments on their value as habitat, food and the life cycle of our island wildlife; birds, butterflies and even some mammalian and reptilian species. Sibley will bring an excellent take-home information sheet on planting and establishing native plants. A question and answer session will follow his presentation. The lecture is free and open to the public but space is limited.

With the success of the IT Departments Tech Bar implemented last summer as an informal area where patrons could handle and compare several devices, including iPads, said Joanne Wessels, Library Technology Manager, came the realization the iPad seems to have been designed by Apple with the library environment in mind. The library has made available six iPads for use by the public in the computer lab. Funding for this service has been made available with a grant from the Sanibel Public Library Foundation. The foundation supports the librarys technology initiatives, and allows us to provide new technology for library users to try out and become familiar with, said Library Director Margaret Mohundro. Soon, we will see library staff members using iPads in the stacks to help people find the right book, check a title or place a request. Along with their ease of use, their portability makes them ideal for setting up mobile lab areas and workspaces in a fraction of the time it normally would take to set up alternative work places. The popularity of the Library Foundations Author Series over the past five seasons has required the Technology Area to be torn down (and subsequently reconstructed) four to five times a year, requiring a tremendous effort. Now, through the generous donations made by patrons to the foundation, we are able to migrate to iPads for a faster setup with state-of-the-art devices, added Wessels. Library technology staff member Chad Singleton works with Richard Croak, Sylvia Zogas and Jim Berthold in the mobile technology lab at the Sanibel Public Library, demonstrating the new iPads made available with funding from the Sanibel Public Library Foundation, Inc. Sanibel Public Library Receives State Grant For Programs And Technologysubmitted by Cathy Cameron, Sanibel Public LibraryThe Sanibel Public Library is the recipient of a State Aid To Libraries Grant of $40,188 from the Florida Department of State Division of Library and Information Services. This is the third year the library has received this grant. We are pleased and grateful to the State Library of Florida and to Gov. Scott for providing funding support for Floridas public libraries, said Library Director Margaret Mohundro. The grant funds are being used for special programs highlighting the states VIVA Florida 500, the yearlong celebration of Florida history and culture. Additional funding is being used to upgrade technology in the librarys public computer labs. Library Archivist Betty Anholt and Programming Coordinator Duane Shaffer discuss ideas to highlight VIVA Florida 500

The signing will be held at the Sanibel Bookshop, 1571 Periwinkle Way, on Wednesday, March 6 at 6:30 p.m. White is a New York Times bestselling author. He lives on Sanibel Island, where he was a light-tackle fishing guide for many years. In Night Moves, both Doc Ford and his friend Tomlinson have buried secrets. Now one of those secrets is about to come alive with a vengeance. While trying to solve one of Floridas most profound secrets, Doc Ford is the target of a murder attempt by someone who wants to make it look like an accident. Or is the target actually Tomlinson? Whatever the answer, the liveaboards and fishing guides at Dinkins Bay on Sanibel Island are becoming increasingly nervous and wary after a near-poisoning, a plane crash and an explosion make it apparent that Ford and Tomlinson are dangerous companions. What their small family of friends dont know is that their secret pasts make it impossible for the two of them to go to the law for help. There is an assassin on the loose, and it is up to them to find the killer before he (or she) finishes the job. For more information, visit www.sanibelbookshop.com or call 472-5223.

ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 22, 201344 Congressional Gridlock Explainedby Max FriedersdorfFormer Congresswoman Jane Harman of California, a veteran of nine terms in the House, described the total legislative gridlock in Washington during her appearance before The Distinguished Scholars Lecture Series on February 14, sponsored by the FORUM at BIG ARTS. Describing a Congress where business almost never gets done, Harman said the destructive partisanship is pervasive and palpable, during her remarks before the capacity Sanibel audience in Schein Hall. Harman attributed this Congressional dysfunction to the goal of getting reelected by appealing to your base group, while trashing the other guy. Harman described a Capitol Hill where there is a war of press releases while committee hearings are really just press conferences. There are a lot of really good talented people on both sides of the aisle, Harman added, but because of the system they have no opportunity to be creative. Congress cannot fix itself, Harman continued, as the caucuses move further to the edge, they dont have interest in solving problems and you have people coming to Washington to blow the place up. Politics used to mean the art of compromise, Harman recalled, and it is very important that we live our values, show generosity, and try to make Congress work again. I remain optimistic there are good people who can do good things, and because it is Valentines Day, believe in the power of love. We need leaders who are willing to take risks, Harman remarked. President Obama risked his career with his bin Laden decision. I was in the White House when President Carter made a similar decision that didnt turn out well. Failure of the Senate to allow a vote on Chuck Hagel, President Obamas nominee for secretary of defense is a spectacle, according to Harman, especially in the face of the looming $100 billion defense budget cut scheduled for March 1 under the sequester resolution; and the military threats involving North Korea, Iran, Syria and Africa. During the question period, Harman agreed that a five-day Congressional work week is a good idea, but it is not going to happen. Harman said she had seen the film Zero Dark Thirty four times and it is a great movie, but not factually accurate that water boarding torture led to finding the bin Laden courier. Harman also responded that she was opposed to term limits because permanent staff takes over managing while elected members come and go. She also pointed out that bi-partisanship in the Congress is actually punished, citing the example of former Senator Richard Lugar of Indiana, who was defeated by 20 percent in the primary last year because of his reputation of trying to work across the aisle, and being praised by the opposition leader. Lugar is a frequent visitor to Sanibel. In answer to another questioner, Harman confirmed that some members of Congress bragged about not having a passport and sleeping on the couch in their offices. They think this is a good thing to be shut off, Harman observed. Harman, a Democrat, resigned from Congress on February 28, 2011, to join the Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington as its first female director, president and CEO. She represented the aerospace center of California during her nine terms in Congress, serving on the Armed Services, Intelligence and Homeland Security Committees.

45 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 22, 2013 Book ReviewBin Laden Manhunt Explainedby Max FriedersdorfBin Laden lived not a bad life for a man on the run, explained author Peter Bergen to a capacity audience at the Sanibel Public Library Author Series on February 11. Bergen, who wrote the recent book, Manhunt: The Ten-Year Search For Bin Laden From 9/11 To Abbottabad described bin Ladens life with three wives during a decade hiding out from a relentless American manhunt. One of the few Western journalists to interview Osama bin Laden, Bergen described the al Qaeda leaders compound in Pakistan as a fortress where he lived in seclusion on the fourth floor without a phone or Internet while other members of the group of 23 residents raised cattle and crops. Bin Laden, married six times starting at 17-years-old, never left the compound, according to Bergen, who detailed how the complex was finally located by tracking a courier. The CIA became very convinced that bin Laden was hiding inside the compound, according to Bergen, but President Obama was faced with a dilemma because his advisors were split on a course of action. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and Vice President Joe Biden were both opposed to any raid, but the President overruled them and ordered the Navy Seal team into action, with the comment Its a go! The raid turned out very well. There were no casualties; thousand of al Qaeda documents were obtained, and it was a big moment in American history with the restoration of American honor,Bergen commented. Asked about the current film, Zero Dark Thirty, Bergen said to remember This is a movie, not a documentary. It is difficult to cover 10 years of history in a two-and-one-half hour film. The movie resurrected what happened during interrogations, which is a good thing. Responding to another question, Bergen said bin Laden should have been captured in 2001 at Tora Bora in the Afghan mountains when U.S. troops continued on page 46 Sanibel Public Library Director Margaret Mohundro with author Peter Bergen Dr. Leal To Become Museums First Curator And Director Of EducationThe Board of Trustees of The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum and its director, Dr. Jos Leal, announced that Dr. Leal will become the museums first curator and director of education in late 2013. Dr. Leal has a PhD in marine biology from the University of Miami and currently serves as president of the Conchologists of America. Leals focus will be to sustain the scientific standing and credibility of the museum and to continue to provide outstanding excellence in education to various groups and individuals, from scientists using the collection, to visitors and school children enjoying the exhibits and programs. The board of trustees is forming a search committee to select a new museum director/CEO. Board members Janet Strickland (a local attorney) and Dr. Ron Toll (provost of Florida Gulf Coast University and a PhD, marine biology) will lead the search committee. An executive search firm will begin a nationwide search in March with the goal of having someone on board in late 2013. I am pleased to continue to be part of this outstanding organization and look forward to focusing on the educational and scientific aspects of the museum in the future, said Dr. Leal. Board President Clair Beckmann added, Jos has always been and will continue to be a beloved member of the Sanibel and museum community. We are delighted that he will remain a part of our museum family. Joss curatorial skills will be vital in developing new educational programs and in continuing to organize and catalogue scientific specimens. We value and honor Joss past contributions and look forward to him continuing to play a significant role. The museum is in the initial phases of planning for the construction of a new collections building. The new building will allow the museum to expand exhibits and programs in the existing building once the collection is relocated and there are many, many other exciting plans for the future as well. p S eason Sp onsor A tri b ute to t h e in d omita bl e w i ll an d am b ition o f aviator Ch ar l es Lin db erg h F ebruary 24, M arch 3 & 10 4 PM $ 30 Child 17 & Under $ 1 5 February 22 March 23 8 PM Feb. 27 & March 13 2 PM Matin e An u tter c h arm b om b e N ew Y ork T imes $ 42 C hild 17 & Under $ 20 p Show S p onsors C harles Lindbergh: The Lone Eagl e h ow Sponsor S h


ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 22, 201346 Democracy Has Increased Around The World, FORUM Toldby Max FriedersdorfDemocracy around the world during the past 40 years increased from 41 to 120 countries, according to William J. Dobson, the featured speaker at the FORUM at BIG ARTS on February 10. Speaking before a sold-out crowd in Schein Hall, Dobson, the Politics and Foreign Affairs editor for Slate magazine, reported, however, that the rate of democratization has slowed because of increased sophistication among the remaining dictatorships. The problem is not with democracy; people still aspire to be free, freedom has not lost its appeal, Dobson observed. What has changed is dictatorship itself. They have become more savvy and nimble. Police states have learned and adapted, honing new formulas for retaining power, Dobson continued. In Russia, for example, they are not likely to knock on your door at night, but rather come in broad daylight, wanting to see your tax work notes, Dobson explained. Dictatorships may allow a limited free press to let people get things off their chest, Dobson added, and to find out what the opposition is saying. Current dictatorships may also hold elections where they only win 70 percent of the vote instead of 99 percent which gives the appearance of a contest, Dobson said. Dobson described North Korea as an old school dictatorship where no opposition is permitted, and, nobody wants to be the next North Korea, Dobson added. Revolutions are not spontaneous events, Dobson noted, and, the days of the romantics are over. There is a temptation to think these regimes are invulnerable because they may have money or American support. Dobson also described a revolutionary training school in the Mediterranean run by Serbian students for activists around the world pledged to non-violent overthrow of totalitarian regimes. Dobson said the governments of China, Venezuela and Russia do not fear the U.S. because of trade ties, oil commerce and policy dependency. Their only fear is from their own people, Dobson noted. During the lively question session, Dobson responded to inquiries about the military dictatorship in Egypt, torture of women in the Middle East, the war in Syria, Venezuela President Chavez and Putins future in Russia. Dobson was introduced by FORUM Chair Dick Wright. The speaker was honored with a reception in Phillips Gallery. Compact discs are available at BIG ARTS for $5 and may be obtained by calling 472-9700, visiting www.bigarts.org or stopping by 900 Dunlop Road. William J.

47 ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 22, 2013 LeBuffs Calusa Exhibit At The Sanibel Librarysubmitted by Cathy CameronCharles LeBuffs Calusa Exhibit will be on display throughout the Sanibel Public Library during the month of March. A longtime Sanibel Islander, LeBuff first wrote about his character, Panti, who is featured in his 2003 historical novel, The Calusan, while attending Fort Myers High School way back in 1953. He created this artisan/warrior in an English class composition assignment. At that time, LeBuff had recently discovered Calusa Indian human remains and artifacts in a shell mound that was being ravaged by road builders near Coconut on the eastern shore of Estero Bay. This event inspired him to create his character, but it took him 50 years to complete Pantis saga and finally put it all down on paper. After arriving on Sanibel Island in 1958 to spend 32 years working at JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge and becoming involved in the protection of regional Calusa sites on federal lands, his stories evolved and led to the publication of The Calusan. To get himself into the mindset to develop the heroic character, Panti, LeBuff decided to replicate a series of weapon-related Calusa artifacts similar to those that were uncovered on Marco Island in 1885. The scope of Pantis life continued to evolve and in The Calusan, he is presented not only as a great warrior, but also as a skilled artist, of a caliber equal to the unknown artisan who was responsible for the famous Native American carving known as the Key Marco Cat. In The Calusan, Panti is the craftsman who creates this cat-like statuette. LeBuffs hand-made Calusa collection will be on exhibit at the Sanibel Public Library between March 1 and 28. It will consist of his interpretation of Calusa ceremonial masks, bow and arrow, atlatl and dart, shark tooth-studded saber and shell hammer, a carved section of manatee rib bone thats part of a necklace and a Key Marco Cat. The major parts of all of LeBuffs pieces except the masks and cat are predominantly made from natural materials that have Sanibel and Captiva origins. You can find LeBuff each Sunday at Sanibels MacIntosh Book Shop, where he is the Sunday guy and hes always happy to talk about his Calusa collection or his books. The most recent of the latter is Sanibel and Captiva Islands, which he co-authored with islander Deb Gleason, scheduled for release on March 4. Sports Author At The LibraryThe Sanibel Public Library welcomes sports author David Truby on February 27 at 2 p.m. in meeting room #4 of the library. The author will present his humorous program titled Foul Bawls & Fueled Ghouls; Let Us Prey on Big-Time Sports Truby is an award-winning journalist and author with 28 books published under his own name and pen names. His work experience includes magazine, newspaper, radio and television. Truby is a retired editor for National News Service, a news and feature syndicate. His program will highlight some of the best and unintentioned humor from his five decades of being around professional baseball and football. Charles LeBuff holding one of his renditions of a Key Marco Cat. When finished, this carving will be part of his Sanibel Public Library exhibit photo courtesy of Deb Gleason. Book DiscussionReaders are invited to discuss The Paris Wife by Paula McLain, which is the focus of the Wednesday, February 27 book discussion meeting at the Sanibel Public Library. The meeting is free and open to the public. The discussion will be led by Bunny Ospa and it begins at 2 p.m. Meeting through mutual friends in Chicago, Hadley is intrigued by brash beautiful boy Ernest Hemingway. After a brief courtship and small wedding, they take off for Paris, where Hadley makes a convincing transformation from an overprotected child to a game and brave young woman who puts up with impoverished living conditions and shattering loneliness to prop up her husbands career. Discussion of the book begins promptly at 2 p.m. The books featured for our book group discussions are available and located in the library near the reference desk. While it is preferable to come having read the book to be able to join in the lively discussion, all are welcome. If you have questions, call the library at 4722483.

Live auction items included lunch at the firehouse, an evening with Larry Congress, cruises aboard the Sanibel Sea Schools boat, the freshest Alaska seafood dinner you can imagine, a social membership to The Dunes along with other benefits, a stunning needlepoint tote professionally finished with leather trim and handles and brass feet and last but not least a dedicated parking place at Baileys for one year. Live auctioneer Victor Mayeron did a great job. There were 57 silent auction items along with two raffle baskets containing restaurant gift certificates totaling about $255 each. There were island-themed items, such as a large giclee of a Florida beach scene, a package including birds nest coral and a colorful coral necklace, and an elaborate shell mirror. There were items for lovers of handmade goods, including a lap quilt done in Sanibel colors, a Luc Century etched bowl with a turtle design, a hand-knit linen shrug, a hand-painted tote bag and fused-glass pendants. A special thank you went to Terry and Brenda Rusnak Cassady for donating their home, Shore Haven, and to John Grey and John Grey Painting for offering their skilled services to paint the homes exterior.

ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 22, 201314B Part II of IIThe Gavins And The WalkersTwo Black Families And Their History On Sanibel IslandThe following is reprinted with minor changes, from a 1996 series of articles by Katie Fjeldstat to mark the Gavin and Walker family reunion, attended by more than 200 peopleSanibel Woman Expecting Her 20th Baby In Month was the headline in the local newspaper in the mid-1960s. When Edmund Gavin married Elnora Walker in 1934, no one imagined the family tree would grow to such unbelievable heights. Pearl Gavin was the first of 20 children born to Edmund and Elnora. By their 30th wedding anniversary, Elnora was pregnant with their 20th child, Eric. Women did not have babies in hospitals back then, recalled Eugene, the fifth child of Edmund and Elnora. Midwives would come to the house and help deliver the baby. When Eugene was born, Elnora traveled from her home on Sanibel to her oldest sisters house in Fort Myers. When my mother arrived in Fort Myers, my aunt and her friend ran to get the midwife, Ms. Salsbury, but I just would not wait, said Eugene laughing. When my aunt returned, I had already been born. My aunt covered me with a blanket and then passed out as if she were the one who had the child! Even after this incident, Regina Walker Smith had six children and Eugene remains very close to his aunt. She has always been precious to me. I am very grateful to her. My wife Velma and I stay in close contact. Being raised on Sanibel was a wonderful experience for the Gavin family because they were able to live near their relatives. A day never went by when we did not see some family member. My grandmother, Pearl Walker, would stop by frequently to see how her daughter and grandchildren were doing, remembers Eugene. Edmunds oldest brother, Oscar Gavin and his wife Mattie, would also check on the family frequently. Although Oscar has passed away, his wife still comes to visit as much as she can and my wife and I go to see her, said Eugene. Velma goes over once a week and they have lunch together. Oscar Gavin started the first rubbish removal business on Sanibel in the early 1950s. He saw that the island was in need of this service and took it upon himself to get the business started. My brothers, sisters and I all looked up to Uncle Oscar because he was kind, a hard worker and successful. When the Gavin children were old enough to begin school, they attended the same place their parents had, the First Baptist Church. Today, this building is named the Schoolhouse Gallery. In order to keep the black school on Sanibel open, seven children had to be enrolled. Occasionally, there were not enough children to keep the school open. When this happened, the black children would have to attend school at Dunbar High in Fort Myers. The Gavins found residence in Fort Myers so their children would not have to take the ferry back and forth to school everyday. We would move there in the fall with mother, Eugene explained. Dad would stay on Sanibel to work and try to visit us on week-ends. In the summer, we would all return to Sanibel and help dad. Even while living in Fort Myers, the Gavin family was surrounded by relatives. Lillie Mae Patterson lived in Fort Myers, and Eugene enjoyed visiting his aunt because she had a son his age. It was nice because her son was the only boy cousin near my age and she always made great macaroni and cheese, said Eugene with a big smile. My Aunt Mae also lived across the street from the church and always encouraged us to attend. She was a very spiritual woman and instrumental in shaping our way of life. Many of us still attend that church today. Eugene remembers having to ride the mail boat to Sanibel on the weekends when his father could not visit. I would have to travel to Sanibel to get money for groceries. The mail boat was closer to our Fort Myers house than the ferry. The boat would first stop on Sanibel to pick up and drop off mail then travel to Captiva. I would get off, run to Grandma Hannas house and wait for dad, then hurry back to the mail boat to go to our house in Fort Myers. When the Gavin children were on Sanibel, they enjoyed swimming in the ocean and stomping through the woods. We loved to go swimming but my father would never let us unless an adult was present, said Eugene. But when we went to the beach to collect shells for dad to sell, we would go in the ocean. We always got in trouble, though, because my parents could see the dried salt on our arms. As the Gavin children collected shells for their father, they would keep their eyes open for unusual shells they could keep. Every April, the Sanibel Shell Fair was held and they would enter their shell showcase for prize drawings. The Shell Fair was the only unique thing that Sanibel did every year so everyone always looked forward to it, Eugene explained. We participated in the first Shell Fair and usually won first, second or third prize at the Fair. As the years went by on Sanibel, the Gavin and Walker family tree really began to spread its limbs. Edmund and Elnora Gavins 20 children were getting older and moving on with their lives. Eleven of the children attended college or a trade school in various states and three of the boys were in the United States Military. My parents always encouraged us to further our schooling, explained Eugene Gavin. Although my dad completed sixth grade, he seemed like a high school graduate because he spoke so well. We all wanted to further our education so we could be successful like our father. He was a very successful man, but had to work very hard. Ken Morris Gavin, the fourth of 20 children, became an attorney and assistant pastor. Our Uncle Harry, the first relative to attend college, influenced Ken along with my parents, said Eugene. Ken went to college in Michigan and also served in the Air Force. He still lives in Michigan, preaching at the Second Baptist Church and practicing law. Ken was instrumental in getting Eugene to move to Michigan in the mid 1980s. We both look up to each other, Eugene explains. I encouraged Ken to join the Air Force when he was drafted continued on page 16B Elvina and Edmund Gavin, center, with Gavin Family members Larry, Isaiah III, Oscar, Idela, Charlotta, Kenneth, Eugene, Ronnie, Stanley, Eric, Pearl, Charles and Lynn Henry Walker was the first family member to attend college

Oscar started Gavin Plumbing after working for two other plumbing companies on the island. His father-in-law encouraged him to open his own business and he has been serving Sanibel and Captiva ever since. Oscars motto has been Do it right the first time! It is a fun job except when we have to work in the rain, Eugene said, laughing. All of our customers are very friendly and have a lot of respect for us, and that makes the job a lot easier. Another entrepreneur in the family was Edmund Buster Jr. For 21 years, he had a successful landscaping business on Sanibel called Buster Landscaping. His enjoyment in landscaping came from my father, who was one of the first landscapers on the island. Buster and my father would help each other on and off throughout the years. The two of them really began working together two months prior to Busters death, in 1995, because they had more work than they could handle. Ronald Gavin, another member of the Gavin clan, has lived in this area his entire life. He worked for Gavin Plumbing for eight years before deciding to continue his passion for cooking. It gets in his blood, said Eugene. He would always cook meals for the family and would make the holiday feasts when we were younger. He loves making dinners and has been a chef for a number of years. Moving across the family tree, the Walkers branches stand sturdy and solid. Eugenes cousin, Carl Jordan, is believed to be the first black person born on Sanibel. He was the first black to buy land on the island in 1969. I still remember when Carland Mozella, his wife, would pick up all of the black children for school and drive them to the ferry, said Eugene. The white children had their school bus but we either had to walk two miles or have Carl take us. Today, Carl is an independent contractor for Sanibel and Captiva while his son, Jim, works for the Planning Department on the island. The oldest daughter of Regina Walker Smith, Pearl, has also remained on Sanibel. Pearl married David West while we were still young, Eugene explained. My brothers, sisters and I all had a lot of respect for Pearl. When she would come to our house, we always obeyed her because it was like we were the children and David and Pearl were the adults. She reminds me a lot of my mother in the way she taught us good habits and had a sound mind. As Sanibel grew to become the city it is today, so did the Gavin and Walker families.

18B ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 22, 2013 Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellFeisty. Thats a great word to describe Rotarys recent guest speaker. Passionate is another label we could attach to the dedication that Jo Marshall, volunteer counselor with SHINE (Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders, an insurance assistance program for elder Floridians), exhibited when she spoke to us about educating ourselves regarding a plethora of Medicare, Medicaid, long-term care options and prescription assistance programs. Marshall is dedicated to helping Florida seniors, their caregivers and family members through the quagmire of procedures that individuals dealing with hospitals, doctors and insurance companies regarding their health and well-being must comprehend in order to take advantage of what they are truly eligible for under these government programs. SHINE is a no-fee service. At the top of the morning, Marshall gave us this important piece of information: When you are admitted to the hospital, are you considered an Inpatient or an Outpatient? Most of us have always felt that when you are admitted to the hospital, you are an inpatient. Thats not necessarily so these days. You have to ask your medical status. Why? Because it makes a difference to present and future medical care. If you are not likely to go into a skilled nursing facility, outpatient may be alright for you because the hospital deductible will not be due. Outpatient services are covered under Medicare Part B, but there is a definite difference when it comes to Medicare payments for follow-up care in skilled nursing facilities. If you are an inpatient, you must be in the hospital three days not including day of discharge before entering a skilled nursing facility for Medicare to pay the first 20 days and part of day 21-100. If you are an inpatient for less than three days, you are responsible for all of your stay in a skilled nursing facility. In Florida this can be $22,500 to about $30,000 for 100 days. If you are an outpatient, sometimes called Observation, none of those days will count towards payment in a skilled nursing care. Joys advice: If you are concerned about your status when being admitted to the hospital and think it should be changed, talk to your physician. If you get no satisfaction there, you also have the right to contact the Quality Improvement Organization and their independent members will review you case. QIQ can help you with your Medicare and Medicare Advantage rights; call 1-800-844-0795 or 1-866800-8757 if you need assistance with receiving quality medical care based on acceptable medical standards. There is help out there. If you are confused about your medical care as you are aging, make an appointment at SHINE with Marshall and she will walk you through all the programs available to you or your loved ones. Your time with her will save you worry and possibly money. She is an advocate for you. She has the right attitude and the right stuff to help you understand your health insurance benefits. SHINE will help you determine the Medicare program for you. They will explain premiums and deductibles and the eligibility for prescription drug programs and where you might go for help with applying for these programs. Marshall is a champion at drug program appeals. She has processed over 60 appeals to drug insurance programs and has recovered three-quarters of a million dollars in drug money for her clients. As Marshall said, she loves a good fight. To make an appointment to see a SHINE Medicare Consultant, call the State Medicare Office toll-free number 1-800-96ELDER. Jo Marshall is a volunteer for SHINE at Older Adult Services/SHARE Club Office in Cape Coral. To make an appointment with her, call 772-6765. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets at 7 a.m. every Friday at Bistro At Beachview, 1100 Par View Drive. If you have any questions regarding Rotary, e-mail Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club President John Grey at John@ JohnGreyPainting.com or PresidentElect Scot Congress at Scot@scongress.com. Jo Marshall of SHINE Flood Insurance Faces Changessubmitted by Ken and Kate Gooderham, ASBPA executive directorsIf you own property along the nations coastline, youre probably aware of and even part of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), the federal program that provides flood insurance protection in return for encouraging better construction standards (and more) along the coast. Many coastal owners are also becoming aware of how changes enacted by Congress last summer will impact their coverage and their checkbooks -as higher standards and higher premiums are starting to make themselves felt. What changed in the last round of NFIP reform? Pre-FIRM subsidies: Structures built before the NFIP was established in the early 1970s are dubbed pre-FIRM buildings FIRM standing for Flood Insurance Rate Maps. To encourage community participation (and the structural and siting improvements that came with it), the NFIP offered subsidies to these pre-FIRM structures. With reform, those subsidies are starting to slip away, being deleted for second homes, rental homes, business structures and structures that have suffered severe and repeated flood losses. For other pre-FIRM structures, the subsidies are decreasing slightly, based on how much the structure is below the current base flood elevation (BFE) for its location (since the BFE is an estimate of how much higher a structure would need to be elevated to avoid routine flood events). Revised flood maps: Based on decades of data, flood maps set the base flood elevation for a coastal area which in turn helps to set the NFIP premium a property in that zone can expect to pay now and in the future. New data means new maps, and coastal owners may see changes in their flood zone (and premium) as these new maps are implemented, For example, new maps already under way before Superstorm Sandy struck will dramatically reshape the coastal construction standards in the New York-New Jersey area, with the number of structures in flood zones expected to double. Also, new maps affecting old structures used to allow those structures to be grandfathered at the old BFE for premium purposes. That is no longer the case, which means that if your zone changes to raise the required BFE, your structure will be charged accordingly based on its difference from the required BFE which will means a higher premium over time. Annual rate increases: The NFIP used to be limited to no more than a 10 percent rate increase by law. The reform bill doubled that limit to 20 percent, which means premium adjustments will kick in more quickly than before (in five years instead of 10). Properties that lost subsidized coverage could see premiums rise even faster, to bring them in line with actual premium levels sooner. NFIP reform is probably not over, with calls for even more stringent measures being countered by others who want to let the current round of changes (barely six months old by now) fully take effect before modifying the program further. However, given the scope of losses the program has faced first from Katrina and, now, as the bills from Sandy mount the push to make NFIP more selfsupporting (or at least less expensive for the federal government to keep afloat) is certain to continue.

19B ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 22, 2013 Rec Center Volunteer Of The MonthThe City of Sanibel Recreation Department would like to recognize Volunteer of the Month Mary Ann Gilhooley. Mary Ann Gilhooley has been a member at the Center 4 Life for six years and has been a board member for Island Seniors, Inc. for over three years. She spends most of her volunteer time preparing for the annual Trash and Treasures event held in November and assists with the big Holiday Bazaar event. Gilhooley most enjoys the camaraderie and togetherness of the people at the Center 4 Life and the feeling of a family working toward improving the beautiful community that is Sanibel Island. When asked her comments about volunteering, Gilhooley responded, Volunteering is a must, especially on a small island, to accomplish the goals set forth by city council and our own board of directors. Gilhooley was born in Brooklyn, New York. She and her husband Tom raised their three children in Weston, Connecticut. Like many families, they vacationed on Sanibel for a week in 1987. The Gilhooleys fell in love with the island, purchased a condo that same week and became full-time residents in 1990 with absolutely no regrets. The Sanibel Recreation Center is located at 3880 Sanibel-Captiva Road. For more information on volunteering, call the Sanibel Recreation Center at 472-0345 or visit www.mysanibel.com.

21B ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 22, 2013 From Squalor In Mexico To The World Of Pro Golf, Esteban Toledo Lives Every Day To Help Those In Needby Ed FrankHe didnt win last weekends Ace Group Classic golf tournament in Naples. But when you read this column about Mexican golf pro Esteban Toledo, you will grasp the fact that he is a champion in every sense of the word. A rookie on the Champions Tour (for golfers 50 and over), Estebans story is a sequel to the popular movie The Blind Side, where a wealthy couple adopted Michael Oher, who went on to become a star for the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens. Lets get back, however, to the almost unbelievable saga of Esteban Toldeo. He grew up the youngest of 11 children in the squalor of Mexicali, Mexico, a border town, in a dirt floor home without plumbing. Skinny and underweight, he turned to boxing as a youngster to learn to protect himself from the daily beatings he had encountered on the streets of Mexicali. Esteban become a professional lightweight boxer with a 16-1 record before appendicitis ended his career. To earn money for his family, he began fishing golf balls out of a pond with his feet at the Mexicali Country Club, selling them back to members. He would then sneak onto the course late in the day to hit balls with clubs he had found. Here is where his life took a dramatic turn. A wealthy businessman in California heard of Estebans plight and traveled to Mexicali to observe the 18-year-old barefooted youngster hitting golf balls. Jon Minis and his wife, Rita, brought Esteban to the United States. He didnt speak a word of English and the Minis spoke very little Spanish. But they overcame their language barriers, provided Esteban schooling and a loving home and urged him to continue his dream of becoming a professional golfer. At one point, Esteban homesick for his family returned to Mexicali, only to have an older sister order him back to the United States under the care of the Minis. The love and devotion of that family changed his life to this very day. Jon told me that the only payback he wanted was for me to earn my Tour Card and to someday help others just as he had helped me, Esteban said last weekend after his Saturday round of the Ace Group Classic. If I can help just one person through my family foundation, then I will have followed what he (Jon Minis) told me. The Esteban Toledo Family Foundation has a goal to raise $800,000 to build a 3,500-square-foot home in Mexicali for 25 to 30 orphans. Esteban will host a golf tournament in September at his home course in California, the Tustin Ranch Golf Club, with the proceeds going to this project. Once that project is built, he will move on to another venture to help the underprivileged in his hometown. Never a golf headliner, Esteban has earned $2 to 3 million on the PGA Tour, the Web.Com Tour and lower level tours. He earned a victory on the Web.Com circuit; recorded second place finishes in the PGAs B.C. Open and Buick Open, won the 2000 Mexican Open and represented Mexico six times in the World Cup. But in order to play on the Champions Tour, he had to qualify through the pros Q School. He finished 13th two weeks ago in his first senior event, the Allianz Championship, and 36th this past week in the Ace Group Classic after bogeying the last hole of the final 18 in what was a still a two-under par round of 70. You need only spend minutes with Esteban and his wife, Colleen, to grasp their commitment to helping those in need. Understanding the poverty from once he came, and the promise he made to his American mentors who rescued him from that environment, Esteban Toledo is a champion of hope winner or not on the golf course. Additional information on his family foundation can be found at www.estebantoledofamilyfoundation.org. The Shot Of The ACE Group Classic That Didnt Make TV Television golf analyst Bobby Clampett, playing in last weekends ACE Group Classic, hit the shot of the tournament in Sundays final round that unfortunately few saw. With the wind gusting to 25 to 30 miles an hour and temperature in the 50s, Clampett hit his second shot on the par five 17th hole into the water on the left side of the fairway. He removed his shoes and socks, rolled up his pants above his knees, took off his sweater and shirt and bare-chested climbed down into the water. Unfazed, he splashed a 70-yard shot onto the green, put his clothes back on and two putted for par. Because Clampett was playing in a trailing threesome and his group started on the 10th tee, the television cameras werent rolling at the time.

The end of the month brings good news in the workplace, thanks to all the efforts youve made to get your projects off the ground and running. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Dont let yourself be cowed into thinking youre not up to the challenge youve taken on. Keep reinforcing your self-confidence, and no one and nothing can stop you. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Positive responses to a recent workplace move should give you added assurance that youre on the right track. Celebrate the good news with family and/or friends. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Theres still a little emotional fuzziness you have to work through before you can feel really certain about your recent decisions. But youre on the right track. Stay with it. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Youre tempted by an offer that seems close to what youve been looking for. But before you pounce on it, see if you can coax out some added perks to sweeten the deal. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Your efforts to settle a volatile situation should prove successful. Now could be a good time to analyze what might have created the problem in the first place. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A once-close associate re-emerges with news that could cause you to reconsider a recent decision. But dont make a move before consulting a trusted adviser. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You might feel pressured to reveal a colleagues secret. But you can rely on your strong Scorpion sense of rectitude to help you continue to do the right thing. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) That pesky situation is still creating problems. But you are moving ahead with it, and soon it should be successfully resolved in your favor. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A spate of indecision leaves you susceptible to doubt. But youll soon regain your emotional sure-footedness and be back leading the way, as usual. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Love rules the week with new romances favored for single Aquarians looking for partners. Cupid also targets renewed commitment for wedded Water Bearers. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A surge of creativity keeps you happily busy through the week. But leave some quiet time to share with loved ones. Some long-awaited news finally comes through. BORN THIS WEEK: People rely on you whenever they need someone they can trust to be caring, considerate and also discreet. On March 1, 1692, in Salem Village in the Massachusetts Bay Colony, three women are charged with the illegal practice of witchcraft after two young girls experienced fits and other mysterious maladies. During the next few months, area residents incriminated more than 150 women and men. On Feb. 27, 1864, the first Union inmates begin arriving at Andersonville prison in Georgia. Andersonville became synonymous with death as nearly a quarter of its inmates died in captivity. Confederate camp commander Henry Wirz was executed after the war for brutality and mistreatment under his command. On March 2, 1917, President Woodrow Wilson signs the Jones-Shafroth Act, under which Puerto Rico became a U.S. territory and Puerto Ricans were granted statutory citizenship. As citizens, Puerto Ricans could now join the U.S. Army, but few chose to do so. After Wilson signed a compulsory military service act two months later, however, 20,000 Puerto Ricans were drafted to serve during World War I. On Feb. 26, 1928, R&B legend Antoine Fats Domino is born in New Orleans. His most memorable hit was Blueberry Hill in 1956. After Hurricane Katrina, he was reported missing from his home in the Lower Ninth Ward, but luckily had been rescued early in the storm. On March 3, 1952, in a 6-3 decision, the U.S. Supreme Court upholds a New York state statute (the Feinberg Law) that prohibits communists from teaching in public schools. The law remained in force until another Supreme Court decision in 1967 declared most of its provisions unconstitutional. On Feb. 25, 1964, 22-year-old Cassius Clay dethrones heavyweight boxing champ Sonny Liston in a seventh-round technical knockout. Clay had predicted he would float like a butterfly, sting like a bee to defeat Liston, the 8-1 favorite. On Feb. 28, 1983, the celebrated sitcom M*A*S*H bows out after 11 seasons. Its title came from the initials for the Mobile Army Surgical Hospital, an isolated forward compound that received wounded soldiers and was staffed by the shows cast of doctors and nurses. It was British author Oscar Wilde who made the following sage observation: Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go. Those who study such things say that if you drink 100 cups of coffee in a row, its likely to kill you. You might have heard that George Washingtons dentures were made of wood, but in fact, they were made of hippopotamus ivory. In 1900, a prairie dog colony was found in Texas. Thats not surprising -prairie dogs are fairly common out West -but this colony was unique. Researchers say it was the largest colony ever discovered, providing a home to 400 million prairie dogs and stretching over 25,000 square miles. If youve read Alice in Wonderland or seen any of the numerous adaptations of it, you probably know about the Mad Hatter. But did you ever wonder why he was mad? It seems that haberdashers (those who make hats) at one time used mercury to cure the felt they needed for the hats. Long-term exposure to mercury causes madness, hence the phrase mad as a hatter. Martin Van Buren was the first president to be born a citizen of the United States. To earn a world record, a woman named Sonya Thomas ate 65 hard-boiled eggs in 6 minutes, 40 seconds. The female long-tailed shrew gives birth to exactly one litter of pups in her lifetime -and promptly dies. Our modern word salary comes from the Latin salarium, or salt money. Salarium was the monthly wages given to Roman soldiers in ancient times -paid in salt. Politicians and diapers have one thing in common. They should both be changed regularly, and for the same reason. -Jose Maria de Eca de Queiroz THIS WEEK IN HISTORY STRANGE BUT TRUE THOUGHT FOR THE DAY FINE ITALIAN CUISINEIL TESORO RISTORANTEwww.iltesoro.netOpen 7 days a week 751 Tarpon Bay Road 239.395.4022 BOARS HEAD MEAT!

ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 22, 201328B Sanibel Island Golf Club Mens ChampionshipThe annual Sanibel Mens Golf Association (formerly the Beachview Mens Golf Association) Championship is a two-day event and was played on Tuesday, February 12 and Saturday, February 16 at Sanibel Island Golf Club. The membership was divided into four groups: the Championship Group, the A Flight, B Flight and the Gold Flight (or the Golden Oldies, as they are sometimes called). The first three groups are divided by handicaps and play from the white tees using gross scores. The Gold group plays from the gold tees and uses net scores. The winner of the Champions Flight was Helmut Peters. At the end of 36 hole regulation, Peters was tied with Rich Rompala, both with a score of 163. They went to the 10th hole for a playoff, with Peters winning by one stroke. Rompala was awarded second place and Bill Stell took third with a score of 167. The A Flight was won by Fred Zimmer with a score of 173. It was a very close match for second and third place, with Dave Wiseley and Tony Baldino tied at 174 (the handicap system works as they both have an index of 15.1) Both decided not to have a playoff, so the back nine scores were used and Wiseleys 44 was awarded second place. Baldino had a 46 on the back nine for third. The B Flight was won by Mike Zembko with a gross score of 194, followed closely by Roger Triftshauser with a 196. David Lewis, our Vice President, took third with a 203. For the Golden boys, it was a clear victory for President Jerry Mader, who had two of his best rounds of the year so far and turned in a net score of 128 for first place. The Gold Flight second place went to Guy Tober with a score of 136 and Al Krause took third with a 137. Winners Jerry Mader, Helmut Peters, Fred Zimmer and Mike Zembko Sanibel 8-Ball Pool LeagueBall Busters Back On Top By OneRich Ennis and Terry Ricotta had 3-0 nights to lead Bunts Ball Busters to a 9-3 win over Fresh Legion Crew. The victory put Bunts back into first place by one game over Bathroom Magic. Chip Gelpi posted two wins for the Legion Crew. John Gonzalez won three straight over Odd Ball Doc Lubinski to pace Bathroom Magic to an 8-4 pasting of the Odd team. Odd guy Matt Hall produced two wins over Jack Dalton and left the Legion with a super-sized victorious smile. Sanibel Cafs Randy Carson won the first three games for his team, but his teammates only produced three more wins on the night to fashion a 6-6 tie with Deep Pockets. George Sell had a 3-0 night for the Pocket shooters. The same thing happened in the Sandycapper vs. Island Lifer match. Sandycapper John Riegert put his team into a 2-1 lead but his teammates only produced three more wins as the Sandycappers fell to Island Lifers, 7-5. Carmen Senese had another perfect night for the Lifers as they continue their climb upward in the league standings.

30B ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 22, 2013 Superior InteriorsA Heavenly Havenby Cindy MalszyckiIn todays busy world, everyone needs an escape. Thats why your master bedroom should be more than just a place to sleep. Why not create a serene retreat where you can get away from the noise and bustle of your daily activity? Your master bedroom needs a special touch of elegance to make it feel different and special. Whatever your personal style traditional, English country, contemporary, or 18th Century now is the time to really give this room the thought it deserves. In this decorating project, your first decision is to lock down your color scheme and anchor print. Perhaps a fabric featuring a spring bouquet of flowers in yellows, raspberry, cornflower blue, and soft green is your choice. Or maybe a geometric-patterned fabric colored with warm tones of taupe, brown, burnt orange and black might be to your liking. Be sure to utilize your anchor print as much as possible, perhaps in your bedding ensemble, and even your window treatment. Coordinating prints and solids can then easily be added to your design treatment. These supporting fabrics are best used as accents in your room dust ruffles, chair upholstery, pillow shams and decorative throw pillows. Master bedroom window treatment selections and designs can be a bit tricky. Naturally, youll want to insure that your window design includes a privacy undertreatment, perhaps a pleated or cellular shade. You might even want to utilize products that will actually black-out the window light. Over-treatments can be beautifully created; let your imagination soar. From balloon shades, to swags and cascades, to a wide variety of custom designed top-treatments, your windows will most certainly set the stage for your dream bedroom.

Freon by Bryan HayesPart 1 of 2On December 31, 1995 something happened that affected every man, woman and child. Well, not really, but now that Ive got your attention, this was the date that the Montreal Protocol and the U.S. Clean Air Act went into effect. This act was the legislation that made your fridge, your cars a/c and your homes comfort system more expensive to have repaired. This act makes it illegal to vent hydrochloroflourocarbons (HCFCs) and chlorodiflouromethane (CFCs) (otherwise known as freon) into the atmosphere. The reason for this laws institution is the depletion of ozone. Ozone is a layer of the atmosphere located about seven miles above the earth. The ozone layer protects us from ultraviolet rays. These are the rays that cause skin problems, damage plastics and fade everything in sight. This is Mother Natures sunscreen. Scientists have been monitoring the ozone level for about 15 years. A five-to10-percent drop in the ozone level has been detected over the U.S. and a 70 percent drop in levels over Antarctica. The Montreal Protocol calls for the phase out of all CFCs by the year ??? Well, they keep changing the date. The primary cause of ozone depletion, they say, is from man-made chemicals containing chlorine, the main substance in freon. Its proposed that the way freon gets to the ozone layer is that freon is heavier then air so, when vented into the atmosphere, it settles on the ground. It can then be carried up to the ozone level by updrafts. This is where ozone becomes attached to chlorine molecules and destroys them. This whole process is estimated to cost every man, woman and child $850 over the course of their lifetime. Not the end of the world, we hope. It does, however, cost more to keep us cool, freeze our food and keep our ice tea cold. Thanks for reading. Next week will be part two. Bryan Hayes is a Sanibel air conditioning contractor.

31B ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 22, 2013 I remember when my sister, as a young girl, would play with my grandmothers collection of matryoshka dolls. Those are the wooden dolls of decreasing size placed one inside of the other. The outer layer is usually the painting of a woman wearing a dress and a babushka with figurines inside that are either male or female characters with the smallest usually looking like an infant carved out of a single wood chip. The matryoshka doll is a good analogy for an estate planning technique that attorneys frequently use but that many of their clients dont quite understandthe testamentary trust. Think of a testamentary trust as the inside doll of one larger than it. The outside or main element is usually a will or a revocable living trust. If I create the Craig Hersch Revocable Trust, then that is the biggest matryoshka doll. Inside of my main doll might be a bunch of smaller dolls, the testamentary trusts. When the grantor of that trust dies, the next inside trust comes out which is a testamentary trust. Testamentary refers to after death, meaning that the revocable trust may split into one or more testamentary trusts that can continue on for a period of years or the lifetime of their beneficiaries who follow the person who originally created the trust. Lets say that George creates a revocable living trust. At his death, a testamentary marital trust is created for and benefits his wife Barbara for the rest of her life. When Barbara dies, two more testamentary trusts are created to benefit their children, Sam and Sarah. Like the matryoshka doll, the trusts keep dividing. But the testamentary trusts are not new trusts that require new language. They always existed inside of their parent trust, but didnt spring into life until the trust before them dies or is taken apart so that the new trust becomes the governing language. Many people, including those who work in the financial services industry, get confused by testamentary trusts. When George dies, for example, my office might call the bank and tell them to change the account to the marital trust created for Barbara. Its easy for them to get confused. Where is this marital trust? they might ask., or, We need a copy of the marital trust, when, in fact, they always had the copy of the marital trust because it was already embedded inside of Georges trust, which they knew about from the beginning! As each testamentary trust is established, the title on the accounts changes and a new taxpayer identification number is obtained. Like the matryoshka doll, its a new trust that came out from inside of the old one but is a completely different person in that it might have different provisions and beneficiaries. That is why the banks and brokerage houses have to change the title to the accounts that are now divided between the testamentary trusts. You might wonder why anyone would use a testamentary trust to begin with. Why dont you just divide all of your estate and leave everything outright to your children? Testamentary trusts are useful in that they can serve to protect the assets that you are leaving your children from the threat of a divorcing spouse, creditors and predators. Assume the example where a son got foreclosed and the bank obtained a deficiency judgment on the mortgage balance. If you leave an inheritance outright to him, the bank may be able to force collection on their judgment. Another example would be your daughter the doctor who is in the middle of a malpractice case when you die. There, the inheritance you leave her might be at risk. Testamentary trusts can be built to mitigate these problems. In years past, testamentary trusts got a bad rap. Many named banks as trustees that didnt perform well or were loathe to distribute any of the money to the trust beneficiaries. Those days are past. A good estate planning attorney can draft a trust that gives its beneficiaries control over the investments and distributions of the trust. You dont even need a bank or trust company. Testamentary trusts can also be drafted to accomplish income tax savings amongst its beneficiaries that cannot otherwise be achieved when an estate is distributed outright. There are all sorts of benefits to drafting testamentary trusts inside of your revocable trust or will, and many of these benefits have nothing at all to do with estate taxes. So when your attorney starts talking about the use of a testamentary trust, think about the old wooden matryoshka dolls. Theyre not quite as beautiful or as much fun, but they can sure add some life and good benefits to your estate plan. Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at www.sbshlaw.com.

ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 22, 201332B From page 1BSanibel Oscar NightTerry Nagle, Mary LaVelle, Sandy Hann, Richard Johnson, Sandy Greco, Harvey and Nancy Padewar, Tom MacCarter, Chuck Ketteman, Meta Roth and Mike Derechin, who will not be skippering the African Queen as he did last year. The Best Supporting Actor award may turn out to be the biggest hit of the evening among many hit performances. Making the presentation will be The Tragic Mike Trio, based on the film Magic Mike, which was itself a spoof on the Chippendales. The male strip in this presentation is reported to be suitable for a Sanibel audience. The age of the audience is not specified and only one of the Tragic Mikes is actually a Mike. Others from the Hollywood Studios are Sonny, Dustin Hoffman, James Bond, Fred Astaire (who may or may not dance) and Clark Gable, who is teamed with Judy Garland rather than Scarlett OHara. Rumor of the week is that even Vladimir Putin will be present... or at least accounted for. When the awards have all been handed over, the audience will be entertained with the screening of the popular romantic comedy Moonstruck, starring the incomparable Cher and Nicholas Cage. On the matter of Academy Awards, keep in mind the real ones for 2013 take place on island and will be decided by the folks of Sanibel. They have the opportunity to vote for their choices for the Oscars at BIG ARTS right up to the Monday evening event. They can vote as often as they want. After viewing Moonstruck, the audience is invited to a champagne reception. Tickets to this star-studded event are $15 and are available at BIG ARTS, 900 Dunlop Road. For more information, call 395-0900. Rusty Brown To Share Her Take On WomenOn Thursday, February 28, The Community House will host a luncheon and one-woman performance by noted performer and storyteller Rusty Brown. Browns performance, What Ive Learned From Witty Women, draws from the writings of her favorite authors. Her show focuses on womens lives and their take on dieting, aging, parenting, loving, even how to get your man to buy a new suit. A couple of her insights are: Clothes are right when they push something out, hold something in, or cover something up; Martha Stewart is crazy when she says an outdoor brunch for 60 is doable. Brown says, 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 sponsored by Sanibel Holiday. Tickets for members are $20, guests are $25. The luncheon, featuring Chicken Caesar Salad, begins at noon. Browns performance follows at 1 p.m. Call The Community House at 472-2155 to make reservations.

34B ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 22, 2013 School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My college-bound high school daughter will soon be taking the ACT/SAT tests. She is a very bright girl but a little disorganized. I know that these tests are timed and very structured. Do you have any tips for her? Steve B., Sanibel, FL Frank, Test-taking skills are very important to learn, especially for students who plan on taking the college entrance exams. Students have become increasingly savvy about test taking with all the practice they have had with the FCATs and other standardized tests given at schools now. Taking the college admissions tests represents perhaps a more intense experience. Typically there are no familiar faces administering these tests, often they are given in an unfamiliar setting and the rules just sitting for these tests are quite strict. Preparation is key. Your daughter should have her transportation arranged and test items (tickets, id, pencils, etc.) ready at least two to four days prior to the test date to prevent last minute crises. Of course, the mantra of getting enough sleep the night before and having a good breakfast really are important for her attention and concentration in the test setting. One area that is often not discussed is how to pace oneself when taking a test. In a recent New York Times article authored John Saavedra, Jr., a number of test-pacing strategies were identified. Here are some of the best of his suggestions. Take Practice Tests By taking practice tests, students can begin to internalize a pace that will allow them to complete the test without rushing through the questions. Dont get stuck on one question Rule of thumb, do the easy questions first and then go back to try and complete the difficult ones. Understand the finer points of timing and grading of each test dont guess on the SAT because you are penalized for incorrect answers, however its okay to guess on the ACT. So when you are taking the ACT and you only have a few minutes left and not enough time to read the questions, but there are lots of bubbles to fill in, its fine to fill them in any way you want. Adjusting your pace its important to know ahead of time how much time is allotted per section on each test. For example, the ACT math test has 60 questions and you are allowed 60 minutes to complete it. Thats a minute per question. The SAT, however, allows 70 minutes per section. Again, preparation and self-knowledge are key. Students should be able to state their own personal strategy for taking these tests. Do they work quickly and have enough time to look at all the questions first or do they work more slowly and just need to get to work immediately? They need a plan on how to approach the variety of problems they will be asked to answer. And students need to remember that, while these tests are important, they are only portion of what is submitted for college admission and colleges do look at the total student. Ms. Greggs is adjunct faculty at Edison State College where she teaches psychology and education courses. She is also Nationally Certified School Psychologist and consultant for School Consultation Services, a private educational consulting company.

35B ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 22, 2013 Dr. DaveWelcome To The Home Stretchby Dr. Dave HepburnPrior to playing hockey, we oldtimers warm up, some by skating on the ice, others by Jack Daniels on ice. After a light skate, many of us head to the side boards, fall to the ice, assume assorted amphibian poses and try to stretch out our whatevers. Fred arches his back like a harp seal on a rock with a case of piles (rockpiles?) while Ralph is performing some snow angel/Zamboni routine. We dont necessarily know what were stretching or why, but we do know that Guy Lafleur did it, followed by a couple of smokes, and he seldom got hurt on Tuesdays. Michael Jordan, a renowned devoted, intense stretching enthusiast who stretched 90 minutes a day, suffered only one injury in 13 star-studded NBA years, a broken foot. The fact is, however, the way we go about stretching on the ice is likely doing no good whatsoever and could be doing us harm. But while pre-game stretching seems to do nothing to prevent injury, stretching itself is turning out to have some beneficial surprises. Not only does stretching increase range of motion/flexibility, but also, surprisingly enough, studies have shown it can actually increase our overall strength. Stretching is the cornerstone to many physiotherapy and massage (RMT) treatments of stiff backs and necks. I had an RMT recently fix a stiff neck I was battling by stretching my neck like Gumby in a microwave. (My mother warned me that one day my neck was gonna stretch if I didnt eat my broccoli.) Never felt better. Stretching should be done not only of muscles, but also of joints. Loose joint capsules increase range of motion. As we age, while many of our parts loosen, spread or fall off into our clam chowder, our muscles and joints tighten, decreasing our range of motion. This can mean more difficulty performing routine tasks like cleaning/toileting and unzipping a dress, sights that few of us actually want to see happen to our grandmother. A regular stretching program can help lengthen your muscles, loosen your joint capsules and make daily living activities easier. At the very least, we should aim to stretch all major muscle groups a few times a week, best done after exercising. Even at work, get up from your desk and stretch out here and there to release muscle tension. Tell your boss the doctor demanded that your health required you do this and that it only takes three hours. Stretching tips: Warm up the muscle first. Stretching a cold muscle is like stretching a piece of jerky. Some of us are jerkier than others so find what works for you. First, do 10 minutes of cycling, rowing, elliptical, naked bungy jumping, jogging, combat chess, etc. Gauge your stretches accordingly. They shouldnt hurt. If a stretch feels like its being forced too far, as evidenced by, say, your biceps snapping in two, it likely is. Expect to feel tension while youre stretching, not pain. Some of you are still a little tense thinking of Grannys zipper. Even just writing this, I can almost smell her Noxzema. Stretch major muscle groups like your calves, colts, thighs, hips, lower back and neck (suddenly I have an urge for KFC). Dont focus too much on your thumbs, ear lobes or liver. Dont bounce. Bouncing as you stretch can cause small tears in the muscle. Of course, to those of you older than beef jerky, bouncing parts are nothing more than a memory anyway. Hold each stretch for about 30 seconds or half a minute. Repeat each stretch three or four times. Then repeat and repeat that followed by a couple of repeats, particularly if at work. Keep up with your stretching. If you dont stretch regularly, youll stiffen up again like Pokey in the freezer. And the great thing about it is that you dont have to embarrass your lulu lemons at a gym to do this. Welcome to the home stretch. You can easily stretch in the confines of the corner of your basement, which is exactly what Im going to do...over by the.... Noxzema??...ohoh....

36B ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 22, 2013 deaRPharmacistShitake May Help Protect From Cancerby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: Im not a fan of fungus, but Ive heard that shiitake mushrooms are good for cancer. What do you think? CE, Boston, Massachusetts I think some mushrooms are amazing. Shitake, known botanically as Lentinula edodes, are seriously great for immune function. Theyre not just a Japanese delicacy, these mushrooms have been used for centuries, and have a safe history of healing that goes back thousands of years. Chinese medicine traditionally uses mushrooms to enhance qi (pronoucned chee which refers to your vital life force). We are not talking portabello though, this is altogether different. Shiitake extracts definitely support immune function, but they also appear to have antiviral (even influenza), antibacterial and antifungal effects. Ironic that fungus fights fungus, but its basically the good fungus (shitake) killing the pathogenic ones. The 2009 study published in Complimentary Therapies in Clinical Practice had data to show that shitake had extensive antimicrobial activity against 85% of the organisms it was tested on, including 50% of the yeast and mold species in the trial. This study even compared it to ciprofloxacin, a popular antibiotic. I found a trial suggesting antiviral effects against HIV virus as well as proliferation of leukemia. The activity was due to lentin, an antifungal compound found in shitake. Is the study tight enough for you to go off your current treatment? No way, but its worth including in your regimen, with your doctors blessings. Researchers isolated a substance called lentinan in shiitake that sparks your own immune system to do a better job at getting rid of cancer cells. Researchers conclude that lentinan helps prolong the survival of patients with advanced gastric cancer. In another Japanese study, published in Cancer & Chemotherapy, July 2012, researchers looking at shiitakes effects on liver cancer suggested that the mushrooms might be used for alleviating side effects of chemotherapy and preventing the progression of liver cancer for patients with chronic hepatitis. Shiitake is active against the hepatitis B virus, so you might say this is a liver-loving mushroom in many ways. It protects the colon too. Over 10 years ago, a study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that lentinan was able to retard the development of tumors in mice. In fact, they said, significant regression in tumor formation was observed. Remarkable. Many studies have found that shiitake mushrooms are helpful for everyday ailments. For example, some research shows that shiitake may reduce cholesterol levels in the blood and lower blood pressure. Did I mention that shiitake mushrooms are a natural source of protein and vitamin D? Both are important for immunity. Shiitake mushrooms taste good. I add them to my jasmine rice along with pure saffron, turmeric, onions, grapeseed oil and garlic. Yum. There are excellent supplements/extracts of shitake sold at health food stores and you can also buy multi-tasking formulas which contain several different medicinal mushrooms. Those are a little harder to find. Two good ones are MycoPhyto by Econugenics or Mushroom Optimizer by Jarrow. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

Eden Energy MedicineThump Thymus To Boost Your Immune Systemby Karen L. Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAMLThe Five Minute Routine is the foundation of Eden Energy Medicine that develops a strong energetic core, leaving one feeling invigorated. One exercise in the Five Minute Routine is called The Three Thumps. Engaging the bodys energies by thumping at three different locations gets energies moving forward, boosts and restores energetic balances, increases strength and vitality, and strengthens the immune system by stimulating the energy in your thymus gland (directly linked to your immune system and the production of T-cells), your spleen meridian (which metabolizes everything that goes through your body) and your kidney 27 acupressure point (the end point on your kidney meridian). Today we will learn the Thymus Thump. What benefit is received by thumping the thymus? The thymus gland, located behind the center of your sternum, makes T-cells, which are part of the immune system. The gland helps protect you when you are under stress and it seeks to eliminate the hormonal residue that is created by stress. Do you remember the guerilla in the Tarzan movie (and of course Tarzan himself) as he thumped his chest? That behavior is used by mammals to intuitively strengthen their immune system and the harder the thump, the morecontinued on page 38B Let Our Family ...

37B ISLAND SUN FEBRUARY 22, 2013 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, We have decided that it is time to downsize our housing. The kids are all gone and starting families of their own. Our dear dog has gone to his heaven and we are left with too much space, too much yard work, worn-out furniture and an outdated kitchen. It is time for us to move on to another phase of our lives, but where do we start. Any suggestions? Roger Dear Roger, I have a number of suggestions for you. Talk over with your wife what space you can do without. The fouror five-bedroom house is no longer necessary, but a small three-bedroom townhouse could be a nice option. It is always nice to have an extra bedroom if one of you gets sick, e.g. the flu, to stop spreading the germs. A small third bedroom can be used as a den with a pullout sofa for emergency overnights. It has been my experience that visitors really prefer to stay in nearby motels when visiting; it takes the strain off your wife, so she also can enjoy the visit. Call a reliable realtor and get an appraisal of your home so you know current market values in your area. Then after you decide what you think you may like, ask the agent to take you out on a tour of available properties. You may be very surprised at housing values and costs if you have not been in the market recently. Lizzie Dear Roger, To add to Lizzies suggestions about buying/selling your home, your choice of home should be part of an overall plan. Other factors you need to consider are what are your hobbies and interests. What weather do you enjoy most? What type of community and culture do you want to be in? What health care will you need and is it available? What transportation do you need and are you close to it? At least, hopefully not last, where are the adult children? Do you want to be closer or farther away? Mostly, I hope you are not feeling pressured to move because of societys expectations about what a couple should do when children have grown and moved away. Life is a wonderful journey; make it your journey and not what society or others try to dictate. Pryce Lizzie and Pryces email address is momandmeaging@hotmail.com. Got A Problem? Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: I am a single working mother of two teenagers and I am on constant overload and overwhelmed. I feel alone with no one to turn to. I am concerned that my health is at risk from the stress. I dont even have time to go to the doctor for a check up. What advice can you give me?A: You have two full time jobs; being a mother and having a job. You have to block out a couple hours in your schedule and then speak to your doctor about having your adrenals checked. If you are suffering from adrenal fatigue, you have already set the stage for a compromised immune system, insulin resistance, hyper or hypotension and metabolic disturbances. It is essential you get proper nutritional counseling since diet is very important to improving your overall health. Proper exercise is another component of reducing the effects of stress as well as being a benefit to our bodies. Without proper monitoring of these health issues, women are at risk of allowing stress to make their physical issues worse. So, you have to become a priority in your life and start putting yourself first. I can tell you have put yourself last. Ask your teens to help and assign chores for them to do. They need to take some responsibility to do their share. Start an exercise program even if you start slowly, say a half an hour a couple of times a week. Movement is so important. Start the above suggestions slowly and when you go to bed each night, tell yourself its okay to let some things go that you did not get done. There is only one of you and only so much you can do. Remember, you are the priority.

The focus of the workshop is on self-care and healing.

From page 34BNominationsWe have enlisted the support of a team of nationally respected ethics professions to select this years honoree, said Arlene Roth, executive director of the Uncommon Friends Foundation. Roth also states that the purpose of the award is to encourage more organizations to embrace a culture that applauds and supports the highest standard of ethical behavior at all levels of the company. Businesses must meet the following criteria: Do business and have an office in Lee, Charlotte, Collier, Hendry or Glades County. Be committed to business ethics and model this ethical behavior throughout the company. Be committed to business ethics in dealing with customers, vendors, shareholders, lenders, regulators and the community. Past recipients of the Business Ethics Award are HomeBanc Mortgage Corp., WilsonMiller, Inc., Bonita Bay Group, Shell Point Retirement Community, Markham Norton Mosteller Wright & Co., Conditioned Air and Hope Healthcare Services. For information, call 337-9505 or visit www.uncommonfriends,org. From page 36BEnergy Medicinebenefit and boost the immune system receives. So we are borrowing this innate behavior observed in gorillas to benefit ourselves. Technique: Thumping the thymus is easy. Use your fingers or knuckles and vigorously thump the center of your sternum for 15 to 20 seconds. Enjoy the boost. Play some music, dance and move to the thumping. If there is concern with autoimmune disease, heart issues or reluctance to thump on the body directly, then thump in your field directly in front of the sternum and receive positive benefit this way. Do it daily, but thump more if you are feeling low on energy, feel tired, want to relieve stress or just feel the need for strength and vitality. I remind clients to thump their thymus regularly and frequently (you can never thump too much) when they feel a cold or illness coming on. Thumping is especially helpful when flying in airplanes since it activates your immune system. Thumping at airports has resulted in comical situations. While going through security in San Diego, a guard asked me what I was doing. When I explained I was making sure my energy was crossed and thumping to boost my immune system, she asked if I could show her so I did. My colleague was laughing when she saw me doing the Cross Crawl and thumping with security guards in the middle of the Airport it just shows that energy work is fun, universal and beneficial. Have fun with your energy. Send me your questions. Next weeks Topic will be the Spleen Thump and the K 27 Thump. Caveat: EEM does not diagnose or cure illness, but working with subtle energies of the body has been shown to help many conditions. If you have a questions for Karen, email her at ksemmelmanenergy@ gmail.com. Learn more at www.semmelmanenergy.com.
