Part of the celebration will feature Englewood crafters Garry and Cindy Walter, owners of Olde Tyme Arts and Crafts. Garrys sketches a pelican and a sea turtle were used in the movie Dolphin Tale, and he is illustrating a childrens book called Portal To Floridas Past. Cindy specializes in recreating relics through older crafting methods from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. Its a connection with history and a forgotten way of daily life, said Cindy. Each craft represents a skill that was needed for primitive housekeeping. Cindys items are featured at historical parks in Jamestown, Virginia and Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. The craft demonstrations will take place from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Miss Charlottas Tea Room (the craft kits are available for purchase in the museum gift shop). The 100th birthday celebration begins with a traditional birthday cake at 10 a.m. in Rutlands dining room. Later on, there will be treats in Miss Charlottas Tea Room. At approximately 10:30 a.m., author Marya Repko who wrote A Brief History of Sanibel Island and The Story of Sanibel Island: A History for Younger Readers will give a talk on Sanibel history and sign books in the Old Schoolhouse. At 1:15 p.m., long-time museum docent Ted Hoesel will speak about his extensive vintage clothing collection, while Hal and Nola Theiss will do a reenactment of Sanibel Lighthouse keepers in the Old Schoolhouse. The Rutland House, built in 1913 in the typical cracker style, is made of hard Florida pine. The house originally stood on Periwinkle Way (where Periwinkle Park is now) on pilings made of concrete and beach sand. This protected the house from floods and allowed air to circulate. Eleven-foot ceilings, a wide hallway and the placement of windows and doors opposite each other keep the house cool and are typical attributes of a cracker house. Uncle Clarence Rutland, as he was known, came to the island with his parents in 1896 at the age of 6 and resided in the house from 1928 to shortly before his death in 1982. Learn more about Rutland House and Sanibels history at the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village, 950 Dunlop Road (next to BIG ARTS). The museum is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Full guided tours take place at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. each day. Admission is $5 for people 18 and older; children and members are admitted free. For more information, call 472-4648.

5 ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 2013 From page 1Zonta Peek Houseon Woodring Point, one of the last undeveloped parcels on island, the homesteads collection of vintage wood structures dates back to an era when only hardy fisher-folk populated the island. Among those pioneers were Sam and Esperanza Woodring, who first occupied the home in 1917. Esperanza was matriarch of the Woodring clan and a legendary fishing guide at a time when few women worked in the profession. Her son Ralph and his wife Jean live in the century-old cottage, which they have lovingly restored and furnished with some of the Esperanzas possessions and Jeans family antiques. The couple is opening their home for the Peek and to raise awareness of the need to preserve the homestead. The tiny, 1,000-square-foot cottage looks out on Pine Island Sound and is surrounded by several original structures, including Esperanzas storage shed that once stored her fishing nets. Little effort is needed to imagine that this is exactly what the island pioneers saw when they called Sanibel home many decades ago. The 6.5-acre parcel is all that is left of 160 acres homesteaded by the Woodring family in the 1800s. About half the property, which is made up of mangrove swampland and bay beach fringe, was left in its original, natural state. One cannot help thinking as you look at the historic Woodring homestead that this house represents the past, the present and the future, noted Orlene Shimberg, Zonta Club president. The house and the entire unpaved, beautiful street in its glorious setting, is the epitome of what Sanibel is all about. The Woodring family is negotiating with nonprofit and county agencies, including the Ding Darling Wildlife Society, to sell the 6.5-acre parcel and its buildings for $6 million. Purchase of the land would re-establish an intact, natural system on Woodring Point, which would be managed by the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge. The Ding Darling Wildlife Society has raised $844,000 toward its $1.8 million goal, with Lee Countys Conservation 20/20 program pledging another $3 million. Without the purchase, the parcel is zoned for construction of up to five homes with docks. But if the acquisition is successful, the Woodrings who own Sanibels Bait Box and sell live shrimp from the homesteads dock would be able to remain in their home for life. After their passing, the home would be preserved as a historic attraction and opened to visitors. This is a special, special place, said Jean Woodring. I have always looked at this place as a type of sanctuary. I just love it so much and I want other people to love it, too. Three photographs of the original area and its inhabitants, taken by Woodring Point resident and Florida photographer Charles McCullough, will be on display on the day of the Peek at Sanibel Community Church, the events staging area. The prints were donated by McCullough and Zontian Sheila Hoen and will be available as a raffle to Peek participants on the day of the event, including an $180 credit from Island Art and Frame toward framing of the winners choice. Sponsors for the Woodring Homestead are The Island Law Office of Janet Strickland and long-time Peek supporters, The Sanibel Captiva Trust Company. Funds raised from the Peek, now in its 12th year, are distributed in the form of grants to local and international organizations that help improve the lives of women in need. The Zonta Club of Sanibel-Captiva is a service organization of professional women working together to provide hands-on assistance, advocacy and funds to strengthen womens lives on the islands, in Lee County and around the world through Zonta International.

Dr. Braverman To Speak At St. Michael ChurchDr. Mark Braverman will speak at St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church at the 9:30 a.m. forum on Sunday, March 17. The subject of his talk is The Role of the Faith Communities in Achieving A Just Peace in the Holy Land. Tracing his own journey as an American Jew struggling with the realities of modern Israel, Dr. Braverman calls on the church to play a key role in the movement to bring peace to Israelis and Palestinians. Describing the spiritual and psychological forces driving the discourse in America, in Israel, in the Jewish community and within the church, he turns to the prophets cry for justice and to Jesus transformative ministry to show the way forward. Dr. Braverman is a Jewish American who lectures internationally on the role of religious beliefs, theology and interfaith relations in the cause for a just peace in Israel and Palestine. He is the author of Fatal Embrace: Christians, Jews and the Search for Peace in the Holy Land. St. Michael and All Angels is located at 2304 Periwinkle Way.

Thats just one scenario that can be drawn from a long list of ideas that the city council came up with on Tuesday in an effort to bring the islands dilapidated and outdated commercial areas up to speed. Once again, the city is looking at the concept of a town center centered around Palm Ridge Road and the neighboring city hall/library/BIG ARTS complex but this time around, no ideas are off the table, and the city wants to take a leadership role in bringing it to fruition. Nothing is untouchable, outside the box, was how Councilman Marty Harrity described the councils role. And that may mean being flexible with permitted uses, said Vice Mayor Mick Denham. Sanibels strict development codes have been a stumbling block for redevelopment and just last year council enacted an ordinance that allows for aging hotels and resorts built under old codes to make improvements without losing units under the current rules. Now its the commercial district thats being reviewed. But it will come with a cost. Among the topics on the brainstorming list is the need for capital investment, whether from cultural organizations needing to expand or the city or both. Improving traffic flow is also high on the list, as the concept cant happen without it. Potential land acquisition and land swaps must also be considered. In fact, Mayor Kevin Ruane and City Manager Judie Zimomra have talked about whether the public works department needs all of its 20-acre site off Dunlop Road. About 60 people crowded into MacKenzie Hall for the workshop, during which council sought views from the public. Resident and former city councilman Peter Pappas, who has been on Sanibel for 40 years and recalls the intentions of the founding fathers. They never intended to perpetuate rigidity, he said. Our concepts are set almost in stone. We limited our growth but we have a very tired commercial area Overall prosperity demands that this sector of our community is healthy. Some people arent going to like that, but we have to change. Pappas added, We have to structure redevelopment to mandate less and permit more. I feel we have mandated too much and permitted too little. We have piled restrictive ordinance on restrictive ordinance until it is too much. He cautioned the council not to take too much time in drafting whats necessary to encourage a healthier community. Ralph Clark of BIG ARTS applauded the citys support and leadership. We are wide open to the kinds of things you are talking about he said. Denham said people might ask whether the city is serious this time. He said, We are in the process of doing this very differently. I want everybody to stay with us and work with us. Other topics that will be discussed at subsequent workshops are a needs assessment for the areas businesses and organizations, consideration of developing a master plan, and reviewing permitting rules. Ruane said based on the amount of mail and phone calls he has received, the topic of commercial redevelopment is as vital a topic as we have had before us for quite some time. It is up there with red drift algae on the beach, he said. But unlike the citys decision to clean the algae off the beaches, when it comes to invigorating the commercial district, there is no silver bullet. Everyone wants Sanibel to be the unique place it is and it will remain that way, Ruane stated. Staff will compile the ideas from this meeting into a document for further discussion March 19. Council members said in the meantime they welcome any public input either by email, phone or in person. Kindergarten OrientationThe Sanibel School will be holding its kindergarten orientation on Tuesday, March 19 for children who will be five years old on or before September 1 and who plan to attend school in the fall.

He is survived by his loving wife of 25 years, Carol Bakely, and will be remembered by many locals for his friendly greetings, easy laugh and wildly patterned shirts. Karl was a veteran of the Army who began his civilian career as a mason and moved into construction management with such national firms as Toll Brothers and Pulte Homes before retiring to Sanibel. He had a commanding presence and was known for his generous spirit and willingness to help others who might be encountering difficculties. A member of St. Isabels Catholic Church, he touched many lives in a positive fashion and never failed to stretch out a hand to pull someone up to the sunlight from the shadows. He was a true optimist who lived by a motto Out of every adversity comes a seed of equivalent benefit. He devoted himself to making life wonderful for Carol and he never failed in that endeavor. Life with Karl was never boring and could best be described as Mr. Toads Wild Ride from Disneyland. His love of nature and flowers was reflected in the lush landscaping of his property and he took great joy in both his pets and the local wildlife. There will be no service at Karls request. In lieu of flowers, donatiows may be made to Lee County Animal Services, the group that brought his beloved cats Willie, Bunzer and Noodles from the shelter to his lap. ...

13 ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 2013 Author Series A Success At Sanibel Public Librarysubmitted by Cathy CameronThe Sanibel Public Library had another successful Author Series. The lineup included: Will Shortz, crossword puzzle editor of The New York Times; Robert K. Massie, regarded as the foremost expert on the Russian royal family, whose biography of Peter the Great earned a Pulitzer Prize; Peter Bergen, The New York Times best-selling author and one of the foremost authorities on foreign policy, national security and the new generation of terrorism; and Judy Collins, bestselling author and inspirational recording artist with top 10 hits, Grammy awards, and gold and platinum status records. Although there is no fee to attend the Author Series, the events are ticketed. Tickets are released to Sanibel Public Library cardholders one month in advance of each event. This year, library patrons who are also fans of the authors, started lining up outside the library for their tickets about two hours before the 9 a.m. opening time. Tickets were sold out within minutes of their release.Duane Shaffer, adult program coordinator, deserves special kudos for the success of the series. Shaffer is responsible for selecting and scheduling the authors. His selections are based on popularity and availability. His efforts and dedication have ensured successful programs yearly for the library. There is an Author Wall located in Meeting Room #4 with the names of all of the authors who have done programs at the Sanibel Public Library.

Authors and library staff members Democratic Club Of The Islands MeetingThe Florida State Legislature only meets two months a year. This years legislative session began on March 5. Join the Democratic Club of the Islands on Thursday, March 21, for an update on what the Republicancontrolled legislature is up to now refusing free Medicaid money, fixing voter suppression, further restricting womens reproductive choices, avoiding gun buying loopholes and what you can do about it. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at the Sanibel Public Library, 770 Dunlop Road. Although the legislature is only required to pass a balanced budget, it will consider hundreds of bills during this month and next. Those many Sanibel voters who waited hours in line on November 6 will be glad to know that several of those bills address ways to avoid long voting lines in the future. The guest speaker at the meeting will be Ellis Robinson, co-founder and CEO of Ruths List Florida. Other co-founders are former Florida CFO Alex Sink and Emilys List. A Sanibel resident, Robinson covers the state for Ruths List, recruiting, supporting and electing progressive, prochoice, Democratic women to state and local office. Ruths List members helped elect five new state legislators in 2012, breaking the Republican super majority in both houses. In 2011, Ruths List helped elect three progressive, Democratic women to the Tampa City Council, turning that body blue. Ruths List also helped pass the Fair Districts Florida amendments in 2010, and stop the anti-privacy amendments and others in 2012. Ruths List is now hard at work helping women candidates with races in November 2013, and recruiting talented, progressive, Democratic women for winnable State Legislative and statewide seats in 2014. (Floridas constitutional officers are all up for election in 2014: governor, attorney general, CFO and Commissioner of Agriculture & Consumer Affairs.)

They should also bring a hat, water, sunscreen and comfortable enclosed shoes with socks. For further information, call Elaine Jacobson at 395-1878. Island native, Spanish bayonet What Does The Sequester Mean For The Coast?submitted by Ken and Kate Gooderham, ASBPA executive directorsHave you had enough sequestration yet? Well, get used to it many predict its the new normal in DC for the foreseeable future. What does it mean for the coast? Good question for which there may not yet be an answer. Well spare you another explanation of what sequestration is, how it works or how we got to this point; if you havent heard it enough by now, theres no reason to inflict it on you again. But, as a coastal resident, official or professional, your next question ought to be: Whats it mean for me, my constituents and my coast? The short answer is simple: No one knows yet. All the officials and agencies charged with implementing these across-the-board budget cuts are still scrambling to figure out exactly what the new rules mean and how they will meet its lowered spending targets. At this point, however, there are five areas where coastal interests should intersect with sequestrations slices: Corps of Engineers Even as part of the military, Corps projects will face the same spending scrutiny as everyone else, which translates into something between a 5 percent to an 8-plus percent cut in spending (depending on the source of funds). How that will be achieved, of course, is the question waiting to be answered. Permitting and regulatory review All the agencies that review project permits and interpret coastal regulations will face cuts, with the expectation they will be focused on furloughs, meaning fewer people to do the same work, meaning delays for your project. Disaster recovery and response Because of the multifaceted nature of disaster response, its harder still to assess the impact here. Many disasters are funded either by flood insurance premiums (which took a hit in Katrina and a likely bigger hit in Sandy) or Congressional authorizations which used to be approved routinely, until the Sandy relief bill faced an uphill fight to make it through Congress the last time. Not good news made potentially worse when you consider that the people who administer the disaster recovery programs face furloughs and cuts like every other government employee (except members of Congress, of course). We may not really know the impact until the second, third or fourth disaster strikes and the first few may not even be coastal, with spring floods, tornadoes and forest fires on the horizon. Research Much coastal study relies on federal funding from an alphabet-soup of agencies. Due to the lead time necessary for the research grant process, the sequestration effect here will be delayed although some current projects could see quick cuts if the funding terms allow it. A more immediate impact will be seen in the ability of government employees to attend scientific conferences to hear what others in their field are studying or have discerned from their diligence. Funding for such activities has already been curtailed by many agencies (thanks to recession-receded budgets), and the new cuts should finish this opportunity off for the foreseeable future. The sequestration offset Another intangible is what happens to state and local funding when federal funds are squeezed. Government budgets closer to home are no more flush than those in Washington, and federal cuts in crucial state and local programs may necessitate moving some money away temporarily from the coast to deal with more pressing needs. That could mean projects delayed, cost-shares cut and coastal employees facing furloughs just like their federal counterparts. Not a pretty picture, even with much of it still coming into focus. However, with no forward progress foreseen on the federal front to resolve this spending spat, sequestration may be here to stay. This is new territory for Washington, and its scope makes any accurate assessment of impact difficult to forecast. Coastal managers and officials need to be prepared for the worst, and to keep talking to their federal friends to track what potential cuts over there could have on our coasts over here.

17 ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 2013 Lecture On Wetlands And NutrientsDonald L. Hey, Ph.D., founder of The Wetlands Initiative and Des Plaines River Wetland Demonstration Project in Chicago, will talk about his work with nutrients in midwestern wetland areas in Nutrient Farming in the American Midwest to Protect the Gulf of Mexico. Come to the SCCF Nature Center on Thursday, March 21 at 7 p.m. This program is free and all are welcome to attend. This talk, part of the Moonlight On The Marsh Distinguished Lecture Series, is sponsored by Florida Culf Coast University Everglades Wetland Research Park and the SCCF Marine Lab. Dr. Hey will be talking about the work done by the Wetland Initiative to restore wetlands and also to find innovative ways to finance large-scale wetland restoration. The Wetlands Initiative is dedicated to restoring the wetland resources of the midwest to improve water quality, increase wildlife habitat and biodiversity, and reduce flood damages. For years, many believed that wetlands were more valuable dry than wet and in Illinois, more than 90 percent of the wetlands present 200 years ago are now drained, tiled, dammed or leveed. Today, the value of wetlands needs to be understood in both environmental and economic terms. Wetlands remove pollutants and control sediments to provide cleaner water. They offer food and shelter to a vast array of plants and animals. They store floodwaters to reduce the cost and misery from flooding. They moderate climate change by sequestering carbon. And, importantly but often overlooked their vital ecosystem services are essential for healthy economies.

18 ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 2013 Donation Of $15,000 Boosts Ding Campaign To $1.2 Million MarkEvelyn Rose and Jonathan Silverman of Sanibel Island recently pledged a donation of $15,000 to be paid over three years to the Ding Darling Preservation Campaign, bringing the total pledged to the $1.2 million mark, shy of the $1.8 million goal by $600,000. Funds from the campaign will purchase the environmentally sensitive land of Woodring Point at the entrance to Tarpon Bay and improve the 12-year-old Ding Darling Education Center. Site of the historic Woodring homestead, Woodring Point is also home to myriad species of birds, marine creatures and vegetation. Much like the Woodrings, Silvermans family homesteaded on the East Coast of Florida in the 1800s. I have seen so much development cover sensitive, historical land all over the state that my family and I feel strongly about doing our part to save land, he said. Having walked the Woodring property, we are more convinced than ever that this land needs to be protected for the benefit of its historical value and for the overall wildlife on land and in the water. We are deeply appreciative of this generous support for our mission to preserve Woodring Point property, said Campaign Committee Chair Jim Sprankle. Other committee members include Mary Lou Bailey, Chauncey Goss, Porter Goss, Doris Hardy, Jon Heinrich, Kip Koss, Chip Lesch, John McCabe, Mike Mullins and Bill Vanderbilt. The Ding Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge (DDWS) leads the Preservation Campaign to acquire the 6.56 acres on Woodring Point for the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge and to update and enhance the refuges Education Center exhibits and facilities, including the addition of an elevator. The property preservation is a cooperative effort. DDWS and Lee Countys Conservation 20/20 program will each purchase part of the land; the refuge will assume responsibility to restore and manage both parcels. DDWS must raise private funds to purchase its parcel by September of this year. If not preserved by the refuge, the land could be developed with as many as five dwellings, each permitted a boat dock extending into Tarpon Bay. Construction of new homes and the increase in boat traffic would have significant impact on the sensitive habitat. With a successful campaign, this land acquisition will protect rare bay beach habitat that more than 80 different land and marine species call home or visit for food and shelter, said DDWS President John McCabe.

CROW Case Of The Week Flying Squirrelsby Patricia MolloyGliding through the night skies with the greatest of ease, the Southern flying squirrel (Glaucomys volans) is only one of two flying squirrels native to North America (the other being the Northern flying squirrel). The small, nocturnal mammals with the large saucer-like eyes inhabit wooded areas from southeastern Canada to Florida (with the exception of certain islands including the Florida Keys, Sanibel and Captiva). The most distinguishable feature of the Southern flying squirrel is a cape of loose skin stretching from its wrists to its ankles. Reaching only 10 inches in length as adults, they also possess a wide tail that acts like a rudder as they fly, then as a brake upon landing. As tree squirrels, they do not hibernate like certain ground squirrels; rather, they congregate in tree hollows during cold winter months for warmth and forage at night for food. As many as 50 roosting squirrels have reportedly been found in a single tree cavity. The diet of flying squirrels consists of seeds, nuts and acorns. However, they also feed upon moths, insects and eggs, making them the only omnivores of the squirrel family. The clinic staff at CROW is currently housing and caring for three Southern flying squirrels found off-island. They came in as babies. Now that each one weighs about 50 grams, we moved them outside, said Stephen Roika, assistant wildlife rehabilitator at CROWs clinic. Since they are not native to Sanibel and Captiva, we are very careful not to allow any flying squirrels to get loose on the islands. As soon as Dr. Heather Barron, hospital director, is confident that the three Southern flying squirrels are mature enough to survive on their own, they will be returned to the location in Lee County where they were initially found. Do you ever wonder what types of wild critters find themselves in need of care at the wildlife clinic and why? CROWs Healing Winds Visitor Education Center offers educational programs including presentations by the wildlife clinics medical staff along with guest speakers as part of their Wonders Of Wildlife (WOW) series. The Healing Winds Visitor Education Center also offers hands-on exhibits, live video footage highlighting animal stories and special events suitable for guests of all ages.

ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 201324 Come On, Springtimeby Capt. Matt MitchellAfter a cold start to the week, temperatures slowly rebounded. A few really cold days with windy conditions limited options for anglers. Hopefully, that was the last strong cold front we will have to deal with this winter. Despite lots of reports of red tide, the sound remained red tide-free and the water is as clear as I have seen it all winter. With the official start of spring just over a week away, the numbers of big snook I saw laid up in some of their favorite cold weather haunts was very impressive. This is a great sign that our snook numbers are on the increase. Seeing all these big snook laid up on the coldest days had me pulling my hair out as I tried everything in the live well and tackle box and just could not get them to eat. Warming temperatures will be the major factor to fix this snook lockjaw situation. Deep channels at the south end of Matlacha Pass and in the mouth of the river were just loaded up with hundreds of snook seeking a warm water refuge. These were of all sizes and could be seen sunning on the shallow dark bottom areas within close proximity to deep water. Most of the groups of snook were of 20 or more fish, with the average fish around 30 inches and dozens in the high 30-inch range. This was the most I have seen since prior to our snook kill during the severe cold snap of three winters ago. During these cold periods, sheepshead fishing remained at the top of my list of things to do. Docks around the passes and in the river kept anglers busy on even the coldest days. Chunks of shrimp fished on the bottom caught sheepshead up to five pounds this week. Right after the last cold front passed, we had great numbers of big sheepshead at all the usual places, then as they got worked over by anglers, the average size decreased day by day. For non-stop action, this bite was hard to match. On one trip during the coldest temperatures this week, we sat near one dock for over two hours and caught fish after fish. This bite was much needed after only catching a few short redfish and a couple of keeper trout in the two hours prior. The sheepshead bite will start to wind down as we get past the middle of this month and the fish spawn. Getting tucked back as far as I could in narrow mangrove creeks produced a few redfish on the low tides while bouncing live shrimp slowly on the bottom. Not every mangrove spot held redfish and it took a little working at, but if you kept moving, you would find a few that wanted to eat a bait. Often in these creeks, the redfish would be laid out in the deepest holes and bends, sometimes on the dark spots where the bottom was working like a solar panel for them. Seeing redfish in the clear water was not tough, but getting them to eat was a whole lot tougher. These same deep creeks held quite a few trout as well. The forecast solid week of warm temperatures will do wonders for our fishing. Days in the low 80s will quickly warm our water back up from the low 60s we had for days after the cold front and closer to that magic 70-degree number. Once in that temperature range, everything in the sound will suddenly rebound back to life. Bait fish will begin to appear again and gamefish will come out of the woodwork and switch out of that winter mode. Spring cannot get here soon enough for me as it offers some of the best fishing opportunities our region has to offer.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.

Help Monitor Spawning Horseshoe CrabsA ritual dating back millions of years takes place again this spring on Florida beaches. Spring marks horseshoe crabs mating season, and biologists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) want the publics help identifying spawning sites. Beachgoers will likely have the best luck spotting mating horseshoe crabs around high tide, just before, during or after a new or full moon. The conditions around the new moon tonight and the full moon on March 27 will create ideal opportunities to view the spawning behavior of horseshoe crabs. Mating crabs pair up, with the smaller male on top of the larger female. Other male crabs may also be present around the couple. Beachgoers lucky enough to spot horseshoe crabs are asked to note how many they see and whether the horseshoe crabs are mating. If possible, the observer should also count how many horseshoe crabs are mating adults and how many are juveniles (4 inches wide or smaller). In addition, biologists ask observers to provide the date, time, location, habitat type and environmental conditions such as tides and moon phase when a sighting occurs. The FWC asks the public to report sightings through one of several options. Go to www.MyFWC.com/Contact and click on the Submit a Horseshoe Crab Survey link, then Florida Horseshoe Crab Spawning Beach Survey. You can also report findings via email at horseshoe@MyFWC.com or by phone at 866252-9326. Through December 2012, the FWC has received 2,607 reports from across Florida since the survey program began in April 2002. Horseshoe crabs, often called living fossils, are an important part of the marine ecosystem. Their eggs are a food source for animals. Birds, such as red knots, rely on horseshoe crab eggs to fuel their long migrations to nesting grounds. Horseshoe crabs have also proved valuable to human medicine. Pharmaceutical companies use horseshoe crab blood to ensure intravenous drugs and vaccine injections are bacteria-free and sterile. Scientists are also using horseshoe crabs in cancer research. Orchid Society March MeetingVandas And Why We Love Them will be the topic of the Monday, March 18 meeting of the SanibelCaptiva Orchid Society. The guest speaker for the meeting will be Dr. Martin Motes, a distinguished AOS judge and well known vanda breeder. He has won numerous awards for his orchids throughout his career as co-owner of Motes Orchids in Homestead. Along with his wife Mary, Dr. Motes has written several books on orchids and vandas, including Florida Orchid Growing, which offers readers a month-by-month guide to successful orchid culture in the Sunshine State. The meeting will take place at 1:30 p.m. at St. Michael & All Angels Episcopal Church, 2304 Periwinkle Way on Sanibel. Orchid novices are encouraged to come to the meeting at 1 p.m. to hear a member of the San-Cap Orchid Society talk about the fundamentals of orchid growing.

In response to the growing number of shellers who are lucky enough to find one of the rarer shells, like a junonia, the museum now features a backdrop of a Sanibel beach where shell enthusiasts can have their photo taken to promote in local media. The museum staff is often asked to help identify shell finds and to verify the junonia they find is authentic. Now, once the shell has been identified, the discovery can be documented with a photo that features the museum logo. The mural will include instructions on how to capture the image and where to direct the photo for publication in local media outlets. The mural is sponsored by the museum board president, Clair Beckmann. The is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Museum board member Janet Strickland demonstrates how the new backdrop is used for souvenir photos backdrop photo by Carol Orr Hartman
ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 201326 Captiva Cruises Offers Tours To Historic SitesCaptiva Cruises has new and exciting tours to discover southwest Floridas unique history. On Tuesdays, Captiva Cruises travels to Pine Island for lunch at the historic Tarpon Lodge and a guided walk on the Calusa Heritage Trail, which highlights the pre-Columbian mounds of the indigenous Calusa and their unique and elaborate civilization. On Wednesdays, Captiva Cruises goes up the Caloosahatchee to the Edison & Ford Winter Estates for an up close look at these two transforming Americans. The cruise to Pine Island is an excellent opportunity, not only to learn about the first fishing people of southwest Florida, but also other fishing cultures of Pine Island Sound including the Spanish Cuban fishing era, the commercial fishing era and the Punta Gorda Fish Company as well as the spectacular tarpon and sportfishing of the area. This cruise goes close by historic fish houses in Pine Island Sound, which were used by commercial fishermen in the early 1900s. The cruise to the Edison & Ford Winter Estates offers is a great way of traveling to one of the premier destinations of Southwest Florida. Along the way, it will become evident how the ecology and environment of the area has played a pivotal role in its cultural history leading to Thomas Edison fishing here and purchasing land along the Caloosahatchee. This cruise includes lunch at the Royal Palm Yacht Club, a guided house tour of the Edison and Ford Winter Estates and time to visit its museum and the Edison Laboratory. These cruises are fantastic opportunities for families, friends and neighborhoods to get together and learn about the history and environment of Southwest Florida while enjoying a day out on the water.

27 ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 2013 Plant SmartCoral Vineby Gerri ReavesCoral vine (Antigonon leptopus) is a native of Mexico that has escaped cultivation in Florida and become naturalized. It is listed as a category-II invasive species by the Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council. A member of the buckwheat family, it has more than 30 common names, including Mexican creeper and Confederate vine. This vine quickly climbs and sprawls on anything its tendrils can reach, growing up 40 feet or longer. It will grow almost anywhere in any soil, but likes sun and moisture. Words such as smother and takeover are typical terms used to describe this pretty vine. The vines heartshaped leaves, profuse pink flowers, and adaptability have charmed gardeners and homeowners for decades, who unwittingly helped this invasive plant spread. Moreover, animals help spread the seeds, which are prolific. The underground tubers will resprout if not entirely removed. The numerous tiny flowers bloom on branching stalks. The large sepals, which range from white to pink, rose and coral, surround those flowers in a cup-like fashion. In Florida, the vine blooms year-round. Its best to eliminate this bewitching vine from the landscape. Doing so might take some work, however. Take care that the sharp-pointed pear-shaped seeds do not escape, and be sure to remove all of the tubers. If you want a vine in the same color range, try low-maintenance coral honeysuckle vine (Lonicera sempervirens), which is native to Florida and beneficial to wildlife.

ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 201330 Birds Eye ViewThe Medias Most Dangerous Animals: Bearsby Mark Bird WestallTwenty years ago, I was at the peak of a mid-life crisis and ended up owning a lodge in Alaska for a few years. The lodge was 42 miles inside of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve (which is six times the size of Yellowstone). It was 12 miles from the nearest road and the nearest grocery store was 90 miles away. It was on the shore of a six-mile long lake and my property was the only private property on the lake. I went there in the summers when things slowed down here on the island and I spent many days walking through the wilderness alone. The locals up there called me a chechaquo (Chinook for newcomer) because they figured this naturalist was going to end up as an appetizer for some grizzly bears evening meal. They felt a little better when they saw that I always carried a weapon with me when I went into the bush. They taught me some of the simple rules about living with grizzlies: Always let the bear know when Im in the area by making plenty of noise, or singing, or talking to myself. And, of course, they told me to, Never get between a bear and its kill site and definitely dont get between a bear and its cub. But most importantly, Never get close to a bear thats ever been shot. A bear thats been shot really doesnt like people much anymore! I had to laugh about the last rule. The other rules all made sense to me and I had heard of them before, but the last one... how in the world was I supposed to know if a bear had ever been shot before he was already gnawing on my bones! What the locals in Alaska were trying to teach me was that even though the grizzly was a fearsome, powerful predator that I would always have to be on the lookout for and, once spotted, careful around; if I followed a few simple, basic rules, the grizzly was really only dangerous if humans had seriously injured it in the past. Following this line of reasoning, a few years after I owned the lodge, I read a book that gave me a lot of insight as to how North America used to be. The book was Undaunted Courage: Meriwether Lewis, Thomas Jefferson, and the Opening of the American West, written by Stephen E. Ambrose. Ambrose made several enlightened observations about the west and its environs in the early 1800s, but even he missed a very important point about the Corps of Discoverys confrontations with grizzlies. When Lewis and Clark were still far away from the Rocky Mountains and out on the prairie in North Dakota, they came across their first sign of a grizzly. Lewis did not believe the Indians scary tales about the ferocity of the animal. He wrote in his journal, The men as well as ourselves (Lewis and Clark) are anxious to meet with some of these bear. But within a few weeks, Clark recorded in his own journal, I find that the curiosity of our party is pretty well satisfied with respect to this animal. The point that even Ambrose missed was that just about every time one of the men came across a grizzly, they shot it! And for some reason, the grizzly responded aggressively. Now I ask you, if every time you came across a human being and they shot you, wouldnt you be just a little bit angry at them? Whenever I am around an alligator, I always feel that I am in control of the situation; my intellect and experience has learned to override my instinctive fear. But during those few summers up in Alaska, the grizzlies made me nervous because it was obvious that it was up to them whether or not I lived. They were in charge, not me. Luckily, since I always paid close attention and followed the rules, they never had any reason to pay much attention to me. Probably the best grizzly story I have to tell from my time at the lodge was during my last summer there when we had a few paying customers staying with us. That year, we had a great salmon run at the lake and in August, the lake was full of sockeye salmon. The abundance of fish attracted a sow grizzly with three cubs to the lake and I could take my customers out in a Jon boat, anchor about a hundred yards offshore every evening (the mother grizzly was very predictable in her feeding patterns) and wait for her and cubs to come out of the surrounding forest to feed as she made her way along the shore. Whenever she got close to the lodge, she would always lead her cubs around the back of the lodge (it was on a peninsula) keeping them a safe distance away from our human smell.continued on page 50 I CANNOT TELL A LIE...IT'S SIMPLY THE BEST...

32 ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 2013 Two New Refuge Education InternsJN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge welcomed two new education interns in February for a sixmonth stint. The Ding Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge provides support for the refuge intern program. It not only fulfills our mission to educate a new generation of wildlife stewards, but provides valuable manpower to assist the refuges overworked staff, said DDWS Executive Director Birgie Vertesch. Jeremy Clothier, a 2012 graduate from Tennessee Tech University in Cookeville with a degree in environmental biology, checked in on February 12. Prior to Ding Darling, he also interned at the Fripp Island Resort Nature Center in South Carolina. So far I really enjoy Ding, said Clothier. Its a wonderful place for birding, and it has an exceptional visitor center filled with wonderful staff and volunteers. Sarah Heath arrived on February 20 from Durango, Colorado. Since she graduated from the University of Wyoming with a bachelors degree in wildlife and fisheries biology and management and a minor in philosophy, she has worked with the Polar Bear Internationals Citizen Science project in Churchill, Manitoba; in education at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, Wyoming; and the Colorado Division of Wildlife, inspecting boats for invasive mussel species. This place is beautiful and quite warm I left snow behind at home, said Heath. Theres a ton of things going on at any one time, and Im just hoping that I can keep up. Fortunately, everyone who works here has been so friendly and helpful.

33 ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 2013 Health Of Everglades Essential To Southwest Florida Economyby Jeff LysiakEven though the Everglades the largest subtropical wetland ecosystem in North America might seem like quite a distance from Sanibel and Captiva, the natural impacts that occur within the nearly 750-square-mile region has a ripple effect which impacts both the ecology and economy of the islands. That was the message from Eric Eikenberg, chief executive officer of the Everglades Foundation, as well as Dr. Steven Davis, the foundations wetland ecologist, who spoke at the Captiva Island Yacht Clubs (CIYC) second environmental program of the season last week. During their 90-minute presentation, Eikenberg and Davis promoted the mission of the foundation, spoke of what current projects are under way working towards improving the health of the Everglades and what people can do to help make a difference in a positive way. After being introduced by CIYC Rear Commodore Ed Stringer, program director Paul McCarthy and Erick Lindblad, executive director of the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation, Eikenberg told the audience that he considered working on behalf of the Everglades a privilege, calling the area truly a national treasure. Eikenberg reported that the Everglades Foundation is working on a number of projects including the Tamiami Trail Bridge, C-43 Reservoir Water Storage, Picayune Strand and C-111 Spreader Canal that he hopes will receive the attention of lawmakers in Tallahassee. Its a quality of life issue that we have to make sure that the public understands, said Eikenberg, who noted that more than seven million residents (approximately one out of every three Floridians) rely on the Everglades for their water supply. On March 19, the first mile-long section of bridge along the Tamiami Trail located within Everglades National Park just west of Krome Avenue/177th Avenue will officially open, restoring natural water flow from north to south, which is critical to the recovery of these wetlands. continued on page 48 Erick Lindblad, executive director of the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation Eric Eikenberg, chief executive officer of the Everglades Foundation Dr. Steven Davis, wetland ecologist for the Everglades Foundation Ed Stringer, rear commodore of the Captiva Island Yacht Club Complete Do-It Yourself B oa t P a rt s St o r e L i fe Vest $ 6 9 5 M arin e B atter y $ 6 8 A dd iti o n a l L oca ti o n s : 1156 N.

ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 201334 Author To Discuss Coastal Birds Of The Southeast At LectureWith witty, anecdotal style, John Yow journeys to the fringes and shares his encounters with some of the most familiar and beloved coastal birds in his book The Armchair Birder Goes Coastal: The Secret Lives of Birds of the Southeastern Shore He will present a birding program based on his book in the Ding Darling Education Center on Friday, March 22 at 10 a.m. and again at 1 p.m. Out of his travels from North Carolinas Outer Banks, down the Atlantic coast, and westward along the Gulf of Mexico come colorful accounts of 28 species, from ubiquitous beach birds like sanderlings and laughing gulls to wonders of nature such as roseate spoonbills and American avocets. Along the way, Yow delves into the birds habits and behaviors, experiencing and relating the fascination that leads many an amateur naturalist to become the most unusual of species a birder. A freelance writer based in Acworth, Georgia, Yow has also authored The Armchair Birder: Discovering the Secret Lives of Familiar Birds. Yow ventures from his porch to take readers hunting for shorebirds... (with) his folksy, humorous, and erudite style, writes Publisher Weekly. Following his presentation, Yow will sign copies of his book, which are available for purchase in the Refuge Nature Store, all proceeds of which will benefit the refuge. Admission is free to the lecture, which is sponsored by the Shell Point Retirement Community and Ding Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge (DDWS) as part of its 11-week Friday Afternoon Lecture Series. Seating is limited and available on a first-come basis. A list of upcoming events follows; all include two presentations at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. As usual, Wildlife Drive is closed on Friday, but visitors are welcome to visit the free education center and the recreational opportunities at Tarpon Bay Explorers, the refuges official concessionaire located at its Tarpon Bay Recreation Area. For more information on the lecture series, call 472-1100 ext. 241 or visit www.dingdarlingsociety.org/lectures.

ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 201338 U.S. Energy Picture Looks Bright by Max FriedersdorfRecent advances in technology and efficiency, coupled with vast new resource discoveries, have assured the United States of self sufficiency, according to energy expert Frank A. Verrastro. This is an exciting time with resources in abundance all over the United States, Verrastro explained to a capacity audience at the FORUM at BIG ARTS last Sunday evening, March 10. Speaking on the subject, The Changing Energy Landscape, Verrastro described an extraordinary renaissance of U.S. fortunes with the discovery of vast new oil and gas deposits that can be reached by new technology capable of drilling six miles deep and several miles sideways. Verrastro, a senior vice president and director of the Energy and National Security Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said 28 new resource fields have been located in 26 states. In addition, Verrastro remarked, the nation possesses huge coal reserves, is moving ahead with wind and solar power, and is one of the world leaders in nuclear power. The U.S. is now the worlds largest producer of natural gas, and the third largest producer of oil, pumping the highest level in 20 years in 2012, the speaker continued. Verrastro described the oil boom in North Dakota which has propelled the state into the second highest producer in the nation after Texas. Americas energy outlook looks bright for the first time in a long time, Verrastro surmised, but the policy makers face a dilemma in going forward and need to compromise and be pragmatic, rare commodities recently. On the climate side, Verrastro warned, models are predicting coastal flooding, rising temperatures, and violent storms. It is worse in the rest of the world and natural disasters and famine could touch off worldwide migration across borders. During a lengthy question and discussion period, Verrastro said he expects the controversial Keystone Pipeline to be approved. Saudi Arabia has the worlds largest oil reserves, estimated at 400 billion barrels, and currently has no worries about reduced U.S. demand, the speaker related. Verrastro also minimized the amount of environmental damage caused by the process of fracking to remove oil from shale deposits. Standing water is used and there is no documented contamination; the water is recycled, cleaned up and treated with miniscule waste water, he added. Asked about the possibility of natural gas replacing fuel for transportation, Verrastro explained that natural gas busses and trucks were operating, but the technology was more difficult for use in passenger cars. Natural gas stations are being built every 200 miles on some routes in the west for use by long haul truckers. Verrastro said that cars getting 100 miles per gallon were feasible, and he has driven hybrids getting 80 mpg with good pick up. Asked about the U.S. exporting natural gas, Verrastro said the U.S. has an estimated 10,000 trillion feet of natural gas, and there are 19 export applications presently pending. He estimated the U.S. could be exporting by 2020. He said the supply of water is finite and Saudi Arabia is presently desalinizing the sea water. Verrastro said the holy grail of energy independence was bad policy because of the chances of accidents and catastrophes, and he would prefer to see the nation remain a global trader with alternate energy sources always available. Asked about new companies that are developing from the energy boom, Verrastro mentioned transportation, pipeline and refining industries, as well as Chevron, Shell and Valero among existing firms. In conclusion, Verrastro was asked if the energy department was worth keeping. He responded that 80 percent of the departments work involved weapons development. It needs serious overhauling, he said. The program concluded the 2013 season of FORUM lectures, one of BIG ARTS most successful programs, which is sold out in advance every year. The program was originated 11 years ago by retiring FORUM Chair Dick Wright. He developed the program in 2003 to provide island residents with opportunities for continued education and intellectual engagement. He will be succeeded by Neal Halleran who is working on the 2014 schedule. Frank A. VerrastroDick Wright Retires As FORUM Chairby Max FriedersdorfDick Wright formally announced his retirement as chair of the FORUM at BIG ARTS Distinguished Scholars Lecture Series last Sunday evening before a capacity audience in Schein Performance Hall. The surprise announcement came at the concluding lecture of the 2013 season, the 11th year for the highly popular programs that have featured noted speakers from the Supreme Court, Congress, think tanks, academia, the media, presidential commissions, and the highest posts in the federal government. Every single appearance has been due to the patience, charm, influence, persistence and determination of one man; namely Dick Wright and his mission to bring nationally recognized scholars and leaders to speak at BIG ARTS to provide our members with intellectual stimulation, objective information, scholarly analysis and insights on public policy issues of international and national interest. Wright originated the program in 2003, utilizing his wide range of friends and contacts to entice an amazing roster of speakers over the years including Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Economist Paul Volcker, Ambassador Thomas Pickering, Jim Lehrer of the News Hour, Defense Secretary Mel Laird, Senators Alan Simpson and Susan Collins, Newsman Ted Koppel, and former Cabinet Secretary and University of Miami President Donna Shalala. Considered a genius at recruiting big name speakers, Wrights friends understand the tremendous amount of work involved in juggling schedules and dates as well as playing the gracious host for his important guests, aided immeasurably by his wife Maureen, who received a heartfelt tribute from her husband during the farewell speech Sunday night. Wrights departure is a sad day for the FORUMs 300-plus enthusiastic patrons and 89 loyal hard-working volunteers, but he has agreed to stay on the board to help his successor, Neal Halleran. Halleran is already on the job and has three commitments for 2014.

ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 201342 Bolshoi Ballet Screenings At BIG ARTSBIG ARTS continues its Ballet in Cinema season with a screening of La Bayadre on March 27 and Giselle on April 11. All screenings are at 7 p.m. at BIG ARTS Schein Performance Hall. General Admission $20. Presented from The Bolshoi Ballet, Moscow, BIG ARTS will screen La Bayadre in replacement of the originally scheduled Don Quixote ballet at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 27. Marius Petipas seminal work, La Bayadre was first performed at the Imperial Kamenny Theatre in St. Petersburg in 1877 in a grandiose production portraying a mysterious India. A scene from the ballet, known as The Kingdom of the Shades, is one of the most celebrated excerpts in all of classical ballet, and is considered to be one of the first examples of abstract ballet. Although a major work in Russian tradition, the ballet remained unknown for a long time in the West. La Bayadre tells the story of sacred dancer Nikiya and the warrior Solor, who have sworn eternal fidelity to one another. The High Brahmin, however, is also in love with Nikiya and intends to marry her at any cost. True loves strength is put to the test in this ballet when intervening forces threaten to dismantle all that Nikiya and Solor once held dear. This production, from January 2013, stars Svetlana Zakharova, Maria Alexandrova and Vladislav Lantratov. Giselle is one of the most influential of all Romantic ballets and one of the most popular ballets. BIG ARTS will screen a production from 2011, starring artists of Londons Royal Ballet, featuring Marianela Nuez and Rupert Pennefather. The title role presents the transcendental power of a womans love in the face of betrayal and is one of the most technically demanding and emotionally challenging roles in classical dance not surprisingly, it is here a great showcase for the leading ballerinas of the company. Peter Wrights sensitive staging in the atmospheric designs by John Macfarlane heightens the contrast as the story moves between the human and supernatural worlds. A reviewer in The Telegraph raves The Royal Ballets revival of Giselle provides the succulent spectacle of a world-class company at the top of its game.

ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 201344 Farwell Exhibit To Bring Down The Housesubmitted by David RohnLast year, a new Welcome to Captiva sign was erected just over the Blind Pass Bridge past the entrance to Turner Beach, welcoming visitors to the island. But for locals, the new sign is redundant. Theyve gotten used to being greeted by a familiar series of five pink loops that are part of an abstract statue by artist and Captiva icon Stella Farwell on the gulf side of the road just past the new official welcoming sign. On Saturday, March 16, Captivans will get to see a lot more of Farwells work at a Captiva Civic Association one-woman art exhibit called Creativity. The opening reception at the Captiva Community Center, 11550 Chapin Lane, is from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Farwells show runs through April 4 and may be viewed by appointment by calling 472-2111. In some respects, Farwells exhibit will bring down the house. Plans call for tearing down the community centers meeting hall not long after the show closes as part of a major remodeling and expansion of the center. Her show will be the last art exhibit in the existing meeting hall. Consequently, civic association executive director Paul Garvey has given Farwell license to do just about whatever she wants to the hall by way of mounting her show. Under normal circumstances, thats like giving NASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson license to speed or James Bond license to kill. When Farwell was offered the show last year, she was ready to take full advantage of Garveys offer. After all, this is a woman who proudly claims, Ive always been halfway between an artist and a mad scientist. But that was before undergoing chemotherapy for ovarian cancer last fall, an ordeal that she said has involved a slow recovery. Admitting to frustration at not being physically up to doing many things she wanted to do like screwing things to the ceiling and walls she said the show will involve some new directions for her. Farwell said, The opening will be different than any Ive done before. Asked for some hints, she said, Well, there will be some participatory things with visitors. For example, when you arrive, instead of signing in a guest book, you will have an opportunity to sign your name or anything else you want to say on the wall. Those who know Farwell claim her shows are always special. This, after all, is the woman who was featured in the Captiva Memorial Library Cultural Fests program about her journeys to the North and South Poles when she was on the verge of being in her 60s. The trip to the North Pole aboard a Russian nuclear-powered icebreaker, according to Farwell, was like being between two railroad cars in an earthquake. As for the South Pole, her group was stranded there for five days living in tents in weather where the windchill was minus62 degrees. Shes the first woman president of the Captiva Civic Association, as well as the first woman on the board of the Island Water Association. Farwell is also a woman who, after raising children, working in an exhibit design firm, the solar business, and the oil and gas business, decided she really wanted to be an artist and enrolled in art school at night. Now her art work appears in the Robert Fontaine Gallery in Miami, alongside pieces by the likes of Robert Rauchenberg, Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenberg and Robert Captiva artist Stella Farwell Farwell showing a Captiva flag that she took with her on adventures to both the North Pole and the South Pole A sculpture by Stella Farwell on the gulf side of Captiva Drive near the Blind Pass Bridge A sculpture that belongs to Ted and Clare Sawyer Corner of Periwinkle & Tarpon Bay Road in the Baileys Plaza Lunch, Dinner & Late Night Menu Only All Day Happy Hour on the Island Outdoor Seating (239) 395-1263 for reservations or take-out Every Wednesday Karaoke All New Ladies NightSaturdays DJ Eric 9pm-Midnight 1/2 Price Drinks for Ladies h t d ies LIVE ENTERTAINMENTThursday, March 14thAnthony WayneFriday, March 15thThe Trouble StartersTuesday, March 19thChris Coile (6-7:30pm)Sunday Jazz Brunch9am-1pm Live Smooth Jazz oth Ja Ja a a zz zz zz th J Ja a a a a a zz zz zz zz z zz g g g g g g g g Green Beer in in the Parking Lot Parking LotP l Afternoon All Afterno Lunch & Dinner Irish S pe cials unch & Dinner Irish S pe cials Irish Music All Evenin g Lo n Irish Music All Evenin g Lo ng Celebrate ST.

45 ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 2013 Indiana. A native of New Orleans, Farwell moved to Captiva after discovering it while on vacation. I absolutely fell in love with it, she said, and I decided I was going to end up here. It took 10 years before I was able to do that, but its the smartest thing I ever did in my life. Farwell said that when she arrived here a quarter of a century ago, she didnt know a soul on Captiva. When you dont know anyone, you can either curl up in a ball in the corner or get involved, she explained. I volunteered for everything in sight as a volunteer firefighter, the ABC sale, you name it. The artist said she was initially attracted to Captiva by the environment the sheer beauty of it, and sharing space with so many creatures. But she was also struck by the great sense of community that this little tiny place had. Captiva, she said, influences her work. First of all, theres the natural world, Farwell explained. Youre surrounded by it, whether its the gulf, or the beach, or the clouds, or the birds. But so do her many travels. One of the major pieces in her show is titled Cuba. Last June she went to Cuba with a tour that had a license to visit this island with crumbling buildings, a crumbling infrastructure and once grand boulevards that had turned into, as Farwell put it, lickety pavement. In many respects, she said, it was dirty, dusty and depressing. But then theres this other world in Cuba, she explained, where the people are so happy I believe because they dont know better and they sing, and they dance, and they wear bright colors. Its like two totally different environments existing side by side in one sphere. Another piece she hopes to get finished in time for the show is titled Rivers. It has been influenced by the various rivers she has traveled on in a canoe, on a raft, or on a ship. I love anything in or on the water, or around it, she said. I like new experiences. Her highly abstract work involving all manner of media reflects her creativity, curiosity and ability to find beauty in the world around her. For example, standing alone in the vast desolation of the South Pole, she said she experienced the strange beauty of a land of unimaginable horizons. But Farwell recognizes her art doesnt suit everyones taste. Some artists get upset if someone says something bad about their work, she remarked. But I think its interesting to hear how people respond. At my shows, I often quietly stand by people who dont know who I am. Ill listen to them looking at my works and saying, Oh my god, this is awful. But to me, thats part of the fun. I kind of do what I want to do, and how people respond is up to them. Either they appreciate it or they dont, and both responses are interesting. As for her cancer, which was discovered six years ago at an advanced stage, Farwell is on the board of the Betty Allen Ovarian Cancer Foundation and frequently speaks to groups about ovarian cancer awareness. While the cancer and its treatment affect what she physically can accomplish as an artist, she insists that her objective is to do things that are not influenced by my disease.

47 ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 2013 Shell Points 2013 Art Show And SaleArtists at Shell Point Retirement Community have been preparing for the past 12 months in anticipation of this weekends upcoming Shell Point Art Show and Sale, which is scheduled to take place on March 15, 16 and 17 at the Social Center and Resident Activity Center on The Island at Shell Point. The show runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on March 15 and 16, and from noon to 3 p.m. on March 17. This event is free and open to the public. Shell Point resident artists are extremely talented and the variety of artwork is amazing, said Yvonne Schneff, Shell Point resident and art show coordinator. This years exhibit will feature dozens of talented artists, and include a variety of mediums on display including acrylic, oil, watercolor, pencil, canvas, clay, wood, glass, pottery and more, all created by Shell Point residents. Thousands of people have attended this annual show through the years and the quality of work, as well as the variety, is outstanding, said Lynn Schneider, assistant vice president of communications for the community. Many residents who live here were professional artists in the past, while others have developed their skills as artists in their retirement when they finally had the time to focus on what inspired them rather than making a living or raising a family. For some, art has become a primary form of emotional expression and their art reflects that transcendent quality. Not only is the public invited to see the art on display, they also have the opportunity to purchase pieces, each a true original. Plus, the committee organizing the show has added some new features to make it more inter-active and exciting. Visitors to this years show will be able to discover their own inner-artist as they try their hand at making their own personalized water color greeting card. All of the materials will be provided for creating these cards that can be taken as a memento of the days event, added Schneff. We are also going to offer exciting giveaways where guests have a chance to win $25 in Lucky Bucks given every 90 minutes to be spent right there at the show. The 2013 Shell Point Art Show and Sale will be held on The Island at Shell Point, inside the Social Center and the Resident Activity Center.

48 ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 2013 From page 33EvergladesAccording to Eikenberg, an additional 5.5 miles of bridges along the roadway has been planned, but there is no money left to fund the estimated $120 million project. Therefore, the Everglades Foundation is hoping that some of the money anticipated to be acquired through BP settlements gets earmarked for projects like the Tamiami Trail Bridge and C-43 Reservoir Water Storage. There needs to be a balancing act its a very complex issue, added Eikenberg. Theres no easy fix. During his time at the podium, Davis spoke at length about the link between how the health of the Everglades can make an impact upon the ecology and the economy of South Florida. Noting that the region lies within a unique environmental sweet spot, the Everglades provides a habitat for vegetation and animals not found anywhere else in the world. However, the area is only receiving a fraction of the water flow it used to. The impact of human population, through canal and levee infrastructure initially intended to support only two million residents, has triggered the current devastation seen in the Everglades. Davis offered additional evidence: a loss of 90 percent of wading birds; a total of 68 threatened or endangered species; and extensive pollution throughout the region. But the good news is the folks at the Everglades Foundation are working towards making things better. According to Davis, Floridians receive a four-to-one return on investment for every dollar spent on water restoration. Among the investment benefits are real estate, parks visitation, fishing, additional open spaces for recreational use, jobs and increased water supplies. Somebody asked me before the program today what my favorite time of the year was for the animals and activity in the Everglades, said Davis. The most biologically active period of time in the Everglades is right now. Everything is bursting with energy.

Everything in our environment is connected especially with the water, added McCarthy.

She will sing, Castle on a Cloud the lament of young Cosette in the story of revolution and redemption that is Les Miserables. Steve Cramer, director of the BIG ARTS Community Chorus, is very excited about Dolly singing in the production, This particular song requires a young voice to evince the despair and longing that Cosette feels before she is rescued by Jean Valjean in the story, he said. Jordyns voice is natural and very musical; she is perfect for this piece. Dolly has sung in other productions on Sanibel. Last spring, she sang in the production Starry, Starry Nights at the Sanibel Community Church and has participated in the Thanksgiving service at The Community House in the Childrens Chorus. She also plays the saxophone, and is learning the guitar. When Jordyn isnt singing, she loves all kinds of sports; she plays travel softball for the Fort Myers Fillies, and is on the Sanibel SWAT Swim Team. In March, she will be doing a vocal audition for the Center for the Performing Arts at Cypress Lake High School. She has three siblings: Aubrey, Rachel and Cameron. When asked who is her favorite singer, she replied, Adele. Gives you an idea of how high this girl is aiming. Dolly and the other singers in the BIG ARTS Community Chorus can be seen on stage at Schein Hall at 2 p.m. on March 20, or at 7 p.m. on March 21. In addition to selections from Les Mis the chorus will be singing a variety of folk tunes, spirituals, classical melodies and a medley from The Beach Boys (with special Sanibel lyrics by Mike Bugler) Tickets are $10 each, available at the BIG ARTS box office. Book SigningSanibel author Sarah Elle Emm will be signing copies of her newest young-adult fantasy release, Opalescent, book two from the Harmony Run Series on Thursday, March 21 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at The Island Book Nook, 2330 Palm Ridge Road on Sanibel. Copies of Prismatic, book one from the series, and Emms womens fiction Marrying Missy will also be available. Opalescent doesnt disappoint as we move forward in the exciting story of young people facing segregation and an evil opposition. The sequel starts right where the first book left off with new twists and turns, and loyalties being questioned. Still enslaved in a mixed-race zone within the United Zones of the Authority, Rain Hawkins is part of a secret resistance preparing to take on the tyrannical President Nicks before plans to kill the mixed zones across UZTA are executed. When unsettling dreams and a mysterious voice begin to haunt the dark nights, Rain fears someone more powerful than she has discovered the resistance and their secret abilities. With a known Authority spy on her heels, and her boyfriend, Jabari, suddenly acting strange, Rain doesnt know who to trust and if the voices calling to her are friend or foe. As conditions across all of the zones get worse and the stakes rise, Rain embarks on a quest for answers that will put the people she cares about most in more danger or take them one step closer to the truth and their eventual freedom. Opalescent is a 400-page YoungAdult Fantasy available in paperback with a retail price of $17.99. Sarah Elle Emm

50 ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 2013 Pacifica Quartet With Wu Han To Perform At Sanibel Music FestivalOne of todays most dynamic string quartets, the Pacifica Quartet, will perform Tuesday, March 19 at 8 p.m. at the Sanibel Music Festival. The performance will be at 8 p.m. at Sanibel Congregational Church, 2050 Periwinkle Way. Tickets are $45 each. The concert is sponsored by Sue and Tom Pick. This ensemble has been called by The New York Times as brilliant and astounding. The members of the Pacifica Quartet share a unique history of personal and musical friendship. First violinist Simin Ganatra, born and raised in southern California, initially played with cellist Brandon Vamos and violinist Sibbi Bernhardsson while they were all teenagers. Bernhardsson later brought his good friend Masumi Rostad to the group. Originating on the West Coast, where they played many of their earliest concerts together, the quartet took its name from the Pacific Ocean. Just four years after its formation in 1994, the Grammy-winning Pacifica won the 1998 Naumberg Prize. In 2009, it was named Musical Americas Ensemble of the year. Its many honors include appointment as Quartet-in-Residence at the Metropolitan Museum of Art In 2011-2012. The quartet has been on the faculty of the University of Illinois since 2003 and serves as quartet-in-residence at the University of Chicago. Wu Han joins the ensemble to play a piano quintet. The program will include: Boccherini, Quartet in E-flat major, Op. 58 No. 2; Ravel, Quartet in F major; and Schumann, Piano Quintet in Eflat major, Op. 44.

We towed the dead moose to where we knew the mother bear and her cubs would get to the next day and tied it up on shore to a tree. Everyone at the lodge could see it across the lake with a spotting scope. The next morning, right on cue, all eyes were watching as the mother discovered the dead moose, attacked and killed it again, and then dragged it further up on shore so her cubs could get at it. We watched them for several days as they feasted on their prey, but then the real excitement started. After about four days, the local wolf pack showed up and they attempted unsuccessfully to sneak in and scavenge a little from the carcass. The mother was too protective of her kill, however, and the wolves settled in to a wait until the bears are finished mentality. But what was cool during this waiting period was that occasionally, a wolf would try to coax one of the cubs away from its mother while she was napping in an obviously sly attempt to prey on the cub. The mother grizzly would let the cub get just so far away from her and then she would immediately come to a standing position, probably vocalizing something to the cub, which would quickly turn and run back to the safety of its mother. From the submissive reaction of the wolf, you could almost imagine the wolf saying, Its OK, mama. I was just playing with the little guy. I meant no harm!

51 ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 2013 Monday Night MovieMoonrise Kingdomby Di SaggauThe BIG ARTS Monday Night Movie for March 18 is Moonrise Kingdom. Roger Ebert says, Director Wes Andersons mind must be an exciting place for a story idea to be born. It immediately becomes more than a series of events and is transformed into a world with its own rules, in which everything is driven by emotions and desires as convincing as they are magical. Moonrise Kingdom creates such a world and takes place on an island that might as well be ruled by Prospero. Its set in 1965, though it might as well be set at any time. The island is off the coast of New England, and the film follows a young boy and girl falling in love. When they are moved to run away together, various factions of the town mobilize to search for them and the town is turned upside down. An approaching hurricane also places the lives of the young explorers in danger. The all star cast includes Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Bruce Willis, Frances McDormand, Harvey Keitel and Tilda Swinton. Each actor performs small miracles without playing for laughs or sardonic spins on their material. Rolling Stone calls it an enchanted ride of a movie. Anderson links the everyday and the extraordinary with virtuoso artistry. Shot with a poets eye by Robert Yeoman and lifted by an Alexandre Desplat score that samples Mozart, Hank Williams and Benjamin Britten, the hilarious and heartfelt Moonrise Kingdom is a consistent pleasure. By evoking the joys and terrors of childhood, it reminds us how to be alive. Critics say, A thoroughly endearing journey, and one of the most enjoyable and touching movies to land in theaters so far this year. The film is precious and adorable, but it isnt naive, and the movie breathes so deep that Anderson even gets a real performance out of Willis (this is his best work in years). Anderson always fills his films with colors, never garish but usually definite and active. In this film, the palette tends toward the green of new grass, and the scouts khaki brown. Also, the right amount of red. It is a comfortable canvas to look at, so pretty that it helps establish the feeling of magical realism. Stan Gembicki will lead us in a discussion following the movie. BIG ARTS Film Societys Monday Night Film Series presents a mixture of critically-acclaimed independent and foreign films and documentaries. After each movie, a group of film buffs leads discussions on Gainer Veranda, complemented by refreshments. Films are $8 and begin at 7 p.m. in Schein Performance Hall, located at 900 Dunlop Road. Films are shown in high-definition on a large screen with surround sound. Assistive listening devices are available. Sponsors are Bank of the Islands and Stan and Visnja Gembicki.

53 ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 2013 Book Signing Dr. Constance Clancy-Fisher will hold a book signing on March 22 at Sanibel Bookshop from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Clancy-Fishers book is title The Gift of Change: Embracing Challenges Today for a Promising Tomorrow. Her friend and colleague Dr. Anne Brown from Colorado, author of Backbone Power, will join her. An excerpt from Clancy-Fishers book As humans, we tend to be quite resistant to change. We view change as a source of stress. It seems the greater the change, the higher the stress. If we could view change as not a threat but rather an opportunity for growth, then the stress of change would be greatly reduced. An old Chinese proverb reminds us that change does not have to be a crisis but a chance for learning and personal growth. Everything changes whether we like it or not. We cannot hold onto to anything. With that in mind, it may be easier to recognize the things that come and go. Our emotions change, our behaviors change, actions change, our world changes constantly. Therefore, the stress of change affects us all. Many of us have arrived at places we never thought we would be. We are searching for ways to rediscover and return to our optimum path to achieve our lifes purpose. Clancy-Fisher, EdD, is a practicing mental health counselor and hypnotherapist on Sanibel. A description of Anne Brown PhD, RNCSs Book A wise man once said, the key to failure is trying to please everybody. But before you can tell others no, you have to able to tell yourself yes. Yes to embarking on a path of personal growth. Yes to ending the cycle of people-pleasing and self-neglect finally and forever. Plainly put, you must develop a backbone. Yes, it is a process and a journey. Yes, you will be tested. But on the other side of this crucible lies empowerment and respect. Dr. Brown has been a practicing therapist for the last 25 years The Sanibel Bookshop is at 1571 Periwinkle Way. For more information, call 472-5223.

ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 201354 Poets Corner selected by Tanya HochschildStillnessby Tanya HochschildI try everyday to get away from devices that save me time. Its a crime how ipod, ipad and tweet eat into your day. Lets say, like Garbo did, I want to be alone, no phone no facebook to see Aunt Maggies souffl rise, no surprise when cousin Dorothy shows botox eyes. By having a Mac, I seem to have lost track, thought Kardashian was a town in Iraq. For weeks she was the first item on nightly news, are we that plugged in to drugs, sex and booze?! In one generation weve moved from devices we dug to a fervent wish we could just unplug. Some turn to tai chi and hatha yoga, others travel to Nepal, don a saffron toga. Once we enjoyed dancing under, not with, the stars, be grateful when you cannot get enough bars, when a clerk at a hotel says we have no wi-fi, smile and tell him hes your kinda guy, Book me in, charge a high price not to be on line, thats just fine! I dont want a video that streams, show me one, youll hear loud pitched screams. Scrolling headlines put me off like so much litter, please dont even mention Twitter. Telegraphs once were a great idea, trains once brought your loved ones near. But now things are coming at us much too fast. I feel empty and too full how can this last? I enjoy words that are spoken, unlike breaking news which feels broken. I remember a time that seems out of reach, when we went for quiet walks down the road to the beach. We didnt have screens that vibrate or blink, interrupt us when we are trying to think. We cant turn back the digital clock, so this might come as a bit of a shock, but lets occasionally turn off the noise, and reconnect to simpler joys. Tanya Hochschild is member of a Sanibel Writers Group, has participated in Artpoems and Writers Reads on the island, and had two books published. We invite submissions from local poets. Anyone interested may submit their work via email to tutsie@ comcast.net. Each week, individual work will be showcased.

Mann Hall, Fort Myers Book DiscussionReaders are invited to discuss Calebs Crossing by Geraldine Brooks, which has been selected as the focus of the Wednesday, March 27 book discussion meeting at the Sanibel Public Library, 770 Dunlop Road. There is no charge for the meeting and it is open to the public. The discussion will be led by Judy Davis in Meeting Room 4, across from the elevator on the ground floor. Growing up in the tiny settlement of Great Harbor amid a small band of pioneers and Puritans, Bethia Mayfield yearns for an education that is closed to her due to her gender. As soon as she can, she slips away to explore the islands glistening beaches and observes its native Wampanoag inhabitants. At 12, she encounters Caleb, the young son of an Indian chieftain, and the two forge a secret friendship that draws each into the alien world of the other. 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 to attend. Call the library at 472-2483 with any questions.
55 ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 2013 From page 47Shell PointMelody Desilets, program coordinator, at 454-2290 or visit www.shellpoint.org. Dolphin painting by one of the artists Mike Klein Phil Hilton Author To Share Wealth InsightsWith his new book How Money Walks, entrepreneur and taxreform advocate Travis H. Brown takes an in-depth and compelling look at how people, businesses and working wealth move between the states. Brown will be visiting The Community House from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, March 27 for a reading and reception. Published just a few weeks ago, Browns book is already garnering buzz nationwide. He has recently appeared on CNBC and Fox Business, among other outlets. During his Sanibel appearance, Brown will share fascinating (and sometimes startling) facts about the states that are winning and the states that are losing. Brown, the co-founder of the publicaffairs and advocacy firm Pelopidas, LLC, is an expert in the area of tax reform. Major news outlets, think tanks and business groups turn to him for his well-researched, data-based, non-partisan views on economic growth. A regular contributor to Forbes.com, Brown makes complex issues accessible and interesting. How Money Walks uses unimpeachable IRS data to answer tough questions such as why, between 1995 and 2010, millions of Americans moved between the states and took with them more than $2 trillion in adjusted gross incomes. Brown is an engaging speaker who illustrates his research with the help of a proprietary, interactive, 55-inch touchscreen. How Money Walks is a timely, relevant book that will resonate with audiences all throughout the United States, including Floridians. It explores why some states, like Florida, saw tremendous gains ($86.4 billion in a 15-year period) while other states, like New York, experienced massive losses ($58.6 billion in that same timeframe). Money and people moved from high-tax states to low-tax ones, and the tax that seemed to matter the most was the personal income tax. The states with no income taxes gained the greatest wealth, while the states with the highest income taxes lost the most. How Money Walks received its national launch in New York City last month. Throughout 2013, Brown will participate in speaking engagements and media interviews across the nation; in addition to Sanibel, stops include Washington, D.C.; Dallas, Texas; Chicago, Illinois; Scottsdale, Arizona; and Las Vegas, Nevada. The book is available through Amazon.com and at HowMoneyWalks. com.

The Sanibel-Captiva campaigns leadership givers included 14 Alexis de Tocqueville Members who give $10,000 or more annually, and 59 Keel Club Members who give between $1,000 and $9,999 each year. The combined total of the money raised for the United Way of Lee, Hendry and Glades was $8.1 million. All money raised for the United Way supports local agencies and programs. Thank you Sanibel and Captiva residents who have shown how much we care about our neighbors who are in need. The United Way and its 70 partner agencies will help thousands of people because of the generosity of our islands. The successful campaign directly benefits our islands through the services provided by Sanibel FISH and other United Way agencies located in the Sanibel United Way House, said Tony Lapi. We are very proud to be part of a caring and generous community, said Cliff Smith, president of United Way of Lee, Hendry and Glades.

10B ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 2013 Sanibel Island Golf Club Mens Group All Tied UpOn Saturday, March 9, the Sanibel Island Golf Club Mens Group played a modified stableford game: A net par counted 1 point, a net birdie was 2 points, a net eagle 3 points and a double eagle 4 points. There was a tie score with two teams turning in scores of 96 points. The winners were determined by who had the lowest score on the back nine. Bruce Cutler, Jim Sauer, Cort Meader and Rene Lohser were awarded first as they had the lowest back nine score by one stroke. Cutler and Sauer had double eagles, Meader made several putts and Lohser played his usual steady game. The foursome who tied the winners but lost the scorecard playoff and came in second place were Rich Rompala, Bill Fetherston, Jerry Mader and Al Krause. Third place also resulted in a tie and had to be decided by a scorecard playoff. With the aid of a blind draw was the threesome of Bill Stell, Guy Tober and Roger Cogswell with a score of 90. The other team with a score of 90 that had to settle for fourth place was Mike Zembko, Dick Chocol, Don Bradford and Jack Tukey.

12B ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 2013 Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellHigh school is a telling time in the outcome of a young persons future. Although there are assigned academic programs, Lee County students do have choices when it comes to electives. There is an elective program that appeals to 5,200 high school students in the county that includes learning about leadership, character, student success, personal discipline and responsibility for your actions. This elective is Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (JROTC). Sanibel-Captiva Rotary guest speakers this week were retired Army Lt. Colonel Tom Madigan, director of Army JROTC instruction for Lee County; and retired army Lt. Colonel, Bill Zocovics, director of operations for the Lee County Army JROTC. Madigan said, The most important goal of JROTC is to ensure our future leaders graduate from high school while simultaneously developing each cadets leadership potential and character. The JROTC program combines classroom instruction, a leadership lab and integrated curricular activities focused on attaining an awareness of the rights, responsibilities, and privileges of citizenship; promoting wellness and physical fitness; building life skills; and providing leadership opportunities. As part of the program, cadets wear uniforms and participate in a militarytype drill team for ceremonial presentations and public appearances, but there is no military instruction. This statement addressed to cadets sums up the program: You are always on parade and that means that everything you do matters, regardless of whether anyone is watching. Madigan and Zocovics presented the stepping stones that lead to the success of the program; dreams and goals, selfesteem, team support, decisions and planning, and positive mental attitude. Each cadet is encouraged to make a fiveyear plan for accomplishing those goals. Lee County JROTC students statistics are: 98.9 percent graduate, 20 percent enlist in the military, 32 percent attend vocational-technical school, 38 percent attend college. JROTC programs across the nation provide guidance to students on how they can become their best and contribute to society. The JROTC creed: I am an Army Junior ROTC Cadet I will always conduct myself to bring credit to my family, country, school and the Corps of Cadets. I am loyal and patriotic. I am the future of the United States of America. I do not lie, cheat or steal and will always be accountable for my actions and deeds. I will always practice good citizenship and patriotism. I will work hard to improve my mind and strengthen my body. I will seek the mantle of leadership and stand prepared to uphold the Constitution and the American way of life. May God grant me the strength to always live by this creed. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets at 7 a.m. every Friday at Sanibel Island Golf Club, 1100 Par View Drive.

14B ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 2013 The Sanibel Oscars Shineby Di SaggauLocal movie fans and Hollywood elite, portrayed by island residents, walked the red carpet March 4 during the Sanibel Oscars at BIG ARTS. Executive Director Sid Picker welcomed a full house to the annual event and reminded everyone that this is the Oscar ceremony that really counts because it reflects the votes of Sanibelians. He also thanked his producers Sandy Hann and Hazel Barber for helping put the show together. What a show it was. Master of Ceremonies Albert Hann kept the program moving right along with his genial wit. The evening included James Bond driving a motorcycle on stage, Mae West flirting with the three Magic Mikes and Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers tripping the light fantastic. Island residents portrayed many stars of the silver screen, past and present. Even Vladimir Putin and Gerard Depardieu graced the stage for a chat. The Sanibel Oscar winners differed somewhat from that other Oscar event. Our choices were: Best Picture, Lincoln; Best Director, Steven Spielberg; Best Actor, Daniel Day Lewis; Best Actress, Jennifer Lawrence; Best Supporting Actor, Tommy Lee Jones, Best Supporting Actress, Sally Field, Best Foreign Film, Amour. Special Honorary Oscars went to Wendy Harriman and Chad Nave for their years of assistance in helping the BIG ARTS Film Society. After the award ceremonies, audience members enjoyed the classic movie Moonstruck. This was followed by a champagne reception where they mingled with the stars of the evening.

16B ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 2013 Replicas Of The Historic Ships Docking In Fort MyersFrom March 20 to 27, replicas of both the Nia and Pinta, built by The Columbus Foundation, will be docked at the Fort Myers Yacht Basin in the downtown River District. The historically accurate ships are touring together as a new and enhanced sailing museum to educate the public and school children on the caravel, a Portuguese ship used by Columbus and many early explorers to discover the world. The Nia is a replica of the ship on which Columbus sailed across the Atlantic on his three voyages of discovery to the new world beginning in 1492. Columbus sailed the tiny ship over 25,000 miles. That ship was last heard of in 1501, but the new Nia has a different mission; it is a floating museum that visits ports all over the Western Hemisphere. The Pinta was recently built in Brazil to accompany the Nia on all of her travels. She is a larger version of the archetypal caravel and offers larger deck space for walkaboard tours and has a 40-foot air conditioned main cabin below with seating. Pinta is available for private parties and charters. General admission is $8 for adults, $7 for seniors (age 60+), $6 for ages five to 16 (not in a school group), age four and under are free. Group and school tours (minimum of 15 people) are $5 per person. Tour hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The Fort Myers Yacht Basin is at 1300 Lee Street. For more information and bookings, call 787-672-2152.

18B ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 2013 Around The Islands With AnneGoing Green Takes On New Meaning On St. Patricks Dayby Anne MitchellThe beer will be flowing green and the strains of Irish music will be heard around the islands Sunday as local restaurants and their patrons celebrate St. Patricks Day. Traditions on the Beach, The Island Cow, George & Wendys Seafood Grill and Traders Store & Caf are among the Sanibel establishments that will be encouraging the wearing of the green on Sunday. At George & Wendys, green beer will be served in the parking lot all afternoon while indoors there will be specials featuring traditional Irish dishes and Irish music all evening long. Traditions on the Beach restaurant, bar and lounge will be celebrating with dinner specials including corned beef and cabbage along with the regular menu selections. Sanibels own Irish Pianoman Joe McCormick will perform with singer Marvilla Marzan. Guests will be entertained by Irish sing-alongs, dance and music. Seating for dinner will begin at 5 p.m. and musical entertainment will begin at 7 p.m. and continue until late.

There will be live Irish music and lots of fun on the porch. For Traders VIP members, there will be a St. Patricks-theme cupcake competition.

Contestants will bake and decorate a dozen cupcakes and drop them off between 2 and 3 p.m. Four prizes will be awarded, for Best Overall, Most Creative, Best Tasting and Most Beautifully decorated. Our winners from last year are anticipating some stiff competition and we are hoping many of our VIPs will participate this year, said Gretchen Archambault, who with her husband Joe runs the restaurant. Wear something green and come join in the fun. Were having surprise celebrity judges and a few other surprises that day, she added. What happens when you team a Zebra with a raccoon? Well, the raccoon would be Trouper, who is blind and is the subject of a popular childrens book, and the Zebra is the name of the frozen yogurt store in Baileys Shopping Center. Trouper will be making a guest appearance at Zebra Frozen Yogurt on Tuesday, March 19 at 4 p.m. and all are welcome to join him and perhaps treat themselves to one of the flavors and some of the 52 toppings available.

Longtime friends Jane Reader Weaver of Royal Shell Real Estate and Jane Coats Eckert of Eckert Fine Art in Millerton, New York, lined the walls of the newly renovated cottage with original art by Rauschenberg, Roy Lichtenstein, Michael Kalish and their contemporaries. These works provided quite the backdrop for a gathering of art lovers and old friends. John and Melissa Talmage of Island Barbecue and Sweet Melissas Restaurant on Sanibel provided light fare and Chris Heidrick of Heidrick and Co. Insurance along with Barb Harrington of The Royal Shell Companies shared celebrity bartender status. Don and Gaither DeLuca, Royal Shell Real Estates broker and his wife attended along with Darryl Pottorf and other artists from the Rauschenberg Estate on Captiva. Kat Epple serenaded the crowd and Stephanie Davis was on hand to record the evening for posterity. Paul McCarthy and many Captiva notables came out to mix and mingle, said Reader Weaver. Patrons came from as far away as Manhattan, New York, and Naples, Florida. The show will continue at the cottage for the next two months. Reader Weaver has the property listed and anyone interested may contact her for details at 850-9555.

22B ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 2013 With A Colorful Past, Mientkiewicz Moves From Rookie Team Batting Coach To Manager Of Miracleby Ed FrankFrom just a hitting coach for a rookie team in the Los Angeles Dodgers organization to first-year manager of the Fort Myers Miracle Class A baseball team, Doug Mientkiewicz (pronounced man-kay-which) is the first to admit that he was really surprised when the Minnesota Twins offered him the job. A fixture in the Twins system from 1995, when first drafted out of Florida State University, until 2004, Mientkiewicz had only one season (2012) on the coaching side of baseball when Twins General Manager Terry Ryan asked the Dodgers for permission to discuss the Miracle job with the personable Mientkiewicz. Three times, the Dodgers had asked me to take the hitting coach job before I agreed, and I quickly fell in love working with those kids. But I was born and raised a Twin and it is the only franchise I would consider to leave the Dodgers, he said. A resident of Islamorada, Florida, he said the High A Miracle managership, just three steps removed from the Major Leagues, is the perfect job, allowing him to return to the Twins organization and being closer to home with wife Jodi and 7-yearold son, Steel. Nevertheless, he was surprised to get the job here. Hes a winner. He has a good baseball IQ. Hes been a player, coach and played in a World Series, said Ryan, adding that Robin Ventura of the Chicago White Sox and Mike Metheny of the St. Louis Cardinals hadnt been managers prior to taking over those two clubs. Mientkiewiczs early professional career started with the Miracle in 1996 and by 1998, he had made it to the Majors as the Twins first baseman. His best year was 2001, when he hit .306 with 15 home runs, 74 RBIs and won an American League Gold Glove for his defensive play. In 2000, he was a member of the United States Olympic baseball team and hit the game-winning home run against South Korea in the semi-finals to propel the U.S. to its first baseball gold medal. Mientkiewicz is only one of five Major League players in history to win a World Series and an Olympic gold medal. That World Series victory occurred in 2004, when he had been traded to the Boston Red Sox where his stellar defensive skills were a factor in the first Red Sox World Series title in 84 years. But the final out in that series is perhaps what Mientkiewicz is best remembered an incident which he prefers not discussing because theres plenty about it on the Internet. Briefly, when Red Sox pitcher Keith Foulke tossed the ball to Mientkiewicz at first base for the last out, he kept the ball in what ultimately resulted in a brew-ha. After arguments and even a Red Sox lawsuit, he relinquished the ball that is now in the Baseball Hall of Fame. The life of a Minor League manager is far different from that of a Major Leaguer: long bus trips at night, second-class hotels and meals on the run. It will be a cake walk compared to the 12to 14-hour trips last year with the Dodger rookie team, he said. Mientkiewicz relishes working and instructing youngsters who dream of Major League stardom. He explained that Class A baseball is pivotal to young players as by the time a player moves up to Double A baseball most are capable of competing in the majors. But the odds of making the big show are small. For example, the Twins presently have about 140 participating in Minor League spring training. Historically, less than 10 percent or about eight players will progress to the Twins 40-man Major League roster. It is likely that Mientkiewicz will be managing the Twins No. 1 prospect, infielder Miquel Sano, who slugged 28 home runs and drove in 100 runs last year for Low A Beloit. Asked whether he dreams of someday managing in the Major Leagues, Mientkiewicz downplayed such thoughts, saying his only desire at present is helping youngsters keep their dreams alive. The Twins philosophy through the years has been to promote within rather than buying top stars through free agency. Its as close to a family that you will find in baseball, he said. And his respect for Twins GM Ryan is second only to his father. While the role of a Minor League manager is to develop future Major Leaguers, you can be certain that based on Mientkiewicz past, the 2013 Fort Myers Miracle will be Doug Mientkiewicz Larry NorrisSanibel 1025 Periwin kl e Wa y M on S at. 1 0 5 Evenin g s & Sun d a y s by appointmen t 57 9 0 41 2 Designer CONDO Choose from over 50 fabrics 0 a n d 20 wood sam p les at t h e same price!

Everblades Skate Towards Playoffs Capturing seven of a possible eight points on foreign ice last week, including a four-game winning streak, the Florida Everblades moved into a tie for the post-seasons No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference of the ECHL. With only nine games remaining seven at home in the regular season, Florida began the week with a 32-20-4-7 season record and 75 points. Elmira and South Carolina also had 75 points. The late-season winning play of the Everblades bodes well for the defending Kelly Cup Champions who similarly put on a season-ending push a year ago. Florida began a five-game homestand Wednesday against South Carolina. The two teams square off again Saturday night and Sunday afternoon at Germain Arena.

Seasonal My Stars FOR WEEK OF MARCH 18, 2013ARIES (March 21 to April 19) With your practical side dominant this week, its a good time to reassess your finances to see what expenses you can cut. Aspects also favor mending fraying relationships. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your Bovine-inspired determination to follow matters through from beginning to end pays off in a big way. Enjoy a well-earned weekend of fun with a special someone. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Aspects favor re-establishing business relationships you might have neglected. A family members request needs to be given more thought before you make a decision. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) While you might appreciate the avalanche of advice coming from others, keep in mind that the intuitive Moon Child is best served by listening to her or his own inner voice. LEO (July 23 to August 22) The Lions social life whirls at centrifugal speed this week as you go from function to function. Things slow by weeks end, giving you a chance to catch up on your chores. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Dont let your stand on an issue cause a rift with a colleague. Insist on both of you taking time to reassess your positions while theres still room for compromise. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) An opportunity youd been hoping for finally opens up. But read the fine print before you make a commitment, especially where a time factor might be involved. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your need to know whats going on behind the scenes leads you to make some bold moves. Be prepared with a full explanation of your actions if necessary. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A lot of details need tending to during the early part of the week. The pressure eases by the 20th, allowing you to get back to your major undertaking. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A friend asks you to act on his or her behalf in a dispute. Be careful. You might not have all the facts you need in order to make a fair assessment of the situation. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A new development might require you to cancel some of your plans. But you adapt easily, and by weeks end, you could receive welcome cheering-up news. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Your recent workplace accomplishments boost your self-confidence just as youre about to consider a potentially rewarding, although possibly risky, career move. BORN THIS WEEK: Your love of the arts is equaled only by your strong sense of justice. People can depend on you to always try to do whats right. On March 24, 1603, after 44 years of rule, Queen Elizabeth I of England dies, and King James VI of Scotland ascends to the throne, uniting England and Scotland under a single British monarch. Queen Elizabeth I passed into history as one of Englands greatest monarchs. On March 23, 1839, the initials O.K. are first published in The Boston Morning Post. Meant as an abbreviation for oll correct, a popular slang misspelling of all correct at the time, OK steadily made its way into the everyday speech of Americans. On March 22, 1908, Louis LAmour, the author of scores of bestselling Western novels, is born in Jamestown, N.D. After returning from World War II, LAmour began writing short stories and novels. His big break came when a novel he wrote at the age of 46 became the basis for the popular John Wayne movie Hondo. On March 19, 1916, the First Aero Squadron flies a support mission for the 7,000 U.S. troops who had invaded Mexico on President Woodrow Wilsons orders to capture Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villa dead or alive. On March 18, 1937, nearly 300 students in Texas are killed by an explosion of natural gas at their school. Eleven oil and natural-gas derricks stood in the schoolyard as a means of saving the school money. The blast killed most victims instantly and was felt 40 miles away. On March 20, 1965, President Lyndon Johnson sends a telegram to Gov. George Wallace of Alabama in which he agrees to send federal troops to supervise a planned civil-rights march in Wallaces home state. Earlier that month, civil-rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. had led two attempts to march to Montgomery. On March 21, 1980, President Jimmy Carter informs a group of U.S. athletes that, in response to the December 1979 Soviet incursion into Afghanistan, the United States would boycott the 1980 Olympics in Moscow. It marked the first and only time that the United States has boycotted the Olympics. President Harry Truman was once told there were ghosts in the White House. His response? Im sure theyre here, and Im not half so alarmed at meeting up with any of them as I am at having to meet the live nuts I have to see every day. Pet food is the third most profitable item for supermarkets, following meat and fresh produce. The warmest parts of your body are your eyes and nose, while the coldest parts (unsurprisingly) are your fingers and toes. In the African country of Zaire, more than 200 different languages are spoken. It was more than 30 years ago, in 1982, that a man in suburban Los Angeles tied 24 weather balloons to his lawn chair in an attempt to fly. A pretty successful attempt, too -he made it to 16,000 feet, alarming air traffic controllers and pilots in the process. Those who study such things say that the rate of divorce increases during the winter months. The Baltimore Orioles had a pretty bad season in 1988. After the team lost its first 10 games, Bob Rivers, a deejay at Baltimore radio station WIYY, announced that he would stay on the air until the home team won a game. He kept his word, sleeping only between songs, for 10 days. When the Orioles finally defeated the Chicago White Sox, Rivers played Im Free by The Who, and finally left. Queen termites can live for up to 100 years. When respondents to a survey are guaranteed that the results will be anonymous, fully 40 percent of the people admit to cheating on their taxes. When two men in business always agree, one of them is unnecessary. -William Wrigley, Jr. THIS WEEK IN HISTORY STRANGE BUT TRUE THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
27B ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 2013 FGCU-Sanibel Invitational Golf TournamentOrganizers of the FGCU-Sanibel Invitational Golf Tournament, set for this Saturday, March 16 at the Sanibel Island Golf Club (formerly Beachview) have announced that golfers can sign up as late as 7:30 a.m. on the morning of the event. Join the fun and support a great cause, said Richard Johnson, chairman of the board for Community Housing and Resources (CHR). The tournament is the inaugural event of what is expected to become an annual fundraiser to benefit CHR, a non-profit organization that since 1983 has been providing affordable housing to families and individuals who work in and/or serve our community The course is a favorite with local golfers and the $100 contribution to participate is a great price, including a round of golf, snacks and an awards luncheon. This is only a few dollars above the regular fee for playing the course during season. The event begins at 8:30 a.m. with a shotgun start and its all in good fun no special level of skill is required. Players will be teamed up in foursomes with a member of the Florida Gulf Coast University mens golf team or a local pro. Prizes will be awarded to the top three teams. Players who have signed up so far include Craig Albert and David Wright from Sanibel Captiva Community Bank, Doug Babcock from Tween Waters Inn, Don DeLuca from Royal Shell Vacations, realtors John and Ann Gee and Chef Karl from Baileys Catering. CHR relies on community support and donations from individuals and businesses, since rents are calculated based on residents ability to pay. Rental income does not cover such items as maintenance, refurbishment, landscaping or appliance repair. Sanibels economy depends on the people who provide services through retail and other businesses, said Kelly Collini, executive director of CHR. We all benefit when the work force lives in the community and we are committed to providing housing of which the community and the residents can be proud. Not a golfer? Become a sponsor, with recognition on signage throughout the course. Consider joining these generous businesses and individuals: event sponsor ($2,500) Sanibel Captiva Community Bank); Eagle ($1,000) Baileys General Store; and Birdie ($500) Royal Shell and Tween Waters Inn. Tee or hole sponsors ($100) include Island Pizza, Island BBQ, Sanibel Island Golf Club restaurant, Island Pharmacy, Cottages To Castles, Billys Bikes, Heidrick & Company Insurance, Tim Garmager (partner, Pierce Consulting Partners), Coral Veterinary Clinic, Karen Aulino (Eric Pfeiffer Realty), Amanda Curren (Superior Title), realtors Rob and Robyn Moran, and Sanibel Vice Mayor Mick Denham. Miller and Budweiser distributors have signed on as beer sponsors. For information on sponsorships, contact Kerri Maw at 292-4944 or email@example.com. To sign up as a player, call the Pro Shop at 472-2626 and ask for Ed Lockard or Drew Donnelly, Sanibel Island Golf Clubs owners. Dont delay; player spots are limited. For additional information on CHR, call 472-1189 or stop by their offices at 2401 Library Way on Sanibel.

She also likes to travel, scuba dive and watch Gator football. Decisions, Decisionsby Bryan HayesThe time has finally arrived that you need to replace that old, noisy, energy-sapping air conditioner. There are many different options on the market today. One such option that you should give special consideration to is two stage cooling. Two stage cooling is different than conventional a/c. Rather than run at 100 percent of the rated speed, a two stage a/c will run at much lower level, based upon need. There are many benefits to this way of cooling. It will only go to the 100 percent level when temperatures are extreme. Here are some key points about two stage cooling: Cost Of Operation Because two stage cooling units operate at a lower capacity the majority of the time, the operating cost is lower than conventional systems. Energy costs for operating a two stage system can be 30 to 40 percent lower than conventional cooling systems when in this mode. Humidity When you move air across the cooling coil at a slower speed, the coil has more time to remove excess humidity. So by utilizing this type of technology, you are actually able to keep the temperature a little higher while maintaining a comfortable humidity level. This compounds the energy savings. Pure Comfort Level The level of comfort that is offered by two stage systems is unsurpassed. You will feel cooler, drier and more comfortable than ever before. You will also see that family members agree on what the temperature setting should be. Major bonus! Noise Level A two stage system runs at lower speeds most of the time, therefore, running quieter than a full on or off system. As you can see, two stage cooling can offer you a comfort level that you may have never experienced before. So when the time comes, look into two stage cooling, youll be glad you did.

School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, The homework wars at my house just keep getting worse. I have two boys one in sixth grade and one in 10th grade and they are so tired of the huge amount of homework they get. Im tired of it too; they say they get too much and its not fair. Im willing to go to their schools to discuss this, but I would like to know what a normal amount of homework is for their grade levels. Kristin K., Fort Myers Kristin, You are not alone in the homework wars. Homework causes so many issues both at home and at school. Your question about how much homework is reasonable is a great one. It can be a no-win situation when theres too much homework, parents often complain; and when there is too little, parents will complain again. You can find research studies that support both ends of this issue. So what really makes sense? In all probability, homework will not disappear... so how can its impact be maximized? Some of the more recent studies report that homework is a great tool to build study skills. Other studies have also found a link between higher standardized test scores, but clear-cut evidence has not yet been found between homework and overall higher achievement of students. Critics of homework point out that too much homework or busy work can turn off students to learning. Kids need to see the connection of how the homework they do will help them learn what they really need to know for class. The National PTA and the National Education Association have stated in their parent brochures the following guidelines for homework: For grades K-2 10 to 20 minutes of homework per day For grades 3-6 30 to 60 minutes of homework per day Middle/Junior/Senior High Grades typically have homework assigned in each class they take, with many school policies stating that 30 minutes per class is recommended. Harris Cooper of Duke University said that for middle/junior high grade students diminishing returns on homework begin at about 90 minutes of work and for high school, students homework is effective when it is from 90 minutes to 2.5 hours. As a parent, it might help if you can analyze any non-productive behavior patterns you see with your children while doing homework. Do they complain on specific days of the week for example? Perhaps they would prefer to watch a game or TV show on that day and find their homework particularly annoying. How focused are your children while doing homework? Do they take too many breaks, dawdle about before beginning their work, allow many interruptions, lose and forget their materials these things will prolong the homework period extensively. Its important for you to have a good understanding of how your children approach their work and then work together to solve any problems that you might find. Then, monitor the time they spend and if it does exceed the above guidelines it might be time to talk with their teachers and find out more about why they are assigning a heavy homework load.

She is also Nationally Certified School Psychologist and consultant for School Consultation Services, a private educational consulting company.

FGCU Stem Competition Sanibel WinnersOn Tuesday, March 5, Dana Sanner, middle school science teacher at The Sanibel School, accompanied several students who took part in the 2nd annual FGCU STEM Competition. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. There is a push nationwide to encourage more participation in these subjects by students going on to get college degrees. The competition consisted of team and individual events. The individual event consisted of a 50-question test for the life science, physical science, and earth/space science categories. The math test had 30 questions. During the team event, one student representing each field of science, answered five challenging questions. There was one laptop to share among them to help gather background knowledge needed to answer the questions. Once they researched, they had to apply that information to the context of the problemThe participants at the competition were: Gene Carrier, Chet Chance, Deanna Craig, Jordyn Dolly, Jacob Goodman, Riley Johnson, Anna Kjoller, Griffin Kupsaw, Matthew Lucker, and Colin Maw.The Sanibel School won fifth place overall. Team #1 won second place in the team competition. Chet Chance, Deanna Craig, Riley Johnson, and Matthew Lucker each represented their fields in a very team test. Matt Lucker also took third place in physics. Jordyn Dolly took fifth place life science. Chet Chance finished in third place life science. Griffin Kupsaw finished in fourth place in the earth/space science division. Riley Johnson took second place in earth/space science. GreenFest Offers Alternative SolutionsIts easy being green at Edison State Colleges 5th annual GreenFest Expo. The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 23 at the Edison State College Collier Campus. The expo brings together local businesses and organizations to share environmentally friendly products and services with the community. Admission and parking are free and open to the public. Exhibit vendors include Kinetico Water Systems, Collier County Solid Waste and Recycling, Natural Awakenings, and Rookery Bay. The GreenFest Expo will also feature tours of the Allen & Marla Weiss Health Sciences Hall, childrens activities, music, food, natural products and more. Now in its fifth year, the GreenFest Expo was created when the Collier Campus faculty began incorporating sustainability into their curriculum and wanted to share those ideas with the community. It is just one of the many sustainability initiatives Edison State Colleges Collier Campus has developed during its 20-year history. Sustainability is rooted in our campuss beginnings, said Dr. Robert Jones, president, Edison State College Collier Campus. Being located in southwest Florida in the proximity of the Everglades and other natural surroundings, it was important that we conserve our natural environment yet still maintain an innovative and high-tech college. One way the Collier Campus has done this is by building Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified buildings. According to the U.S. Green Building Council, a LEED certification verifies that a building or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at improving performance across all the metrics that matter most: energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts. In 2007, the Collier Campus opened its first two LEED certified buildings the NCEF Childhood Development Center and the NCEF Pediatric Dental Center/ UF College of Dentistry. In 2012, two more LEED buildings opened the Allen & Marla Weiss Health Sciences Hall and the Student Services building. It is our plan that all new buildings will be LEED certified, said Dr. Jones. In addition to its LEED certified buildings, the Collier Campus also uses an energy saving climate system that provides cost-saving heating and cooling to all Collier Campus buildings. By running the water chiller at night instead of peak energy hours and storing the chilled water in a 500,000 gallon tank that cools its buildings during the day, the campus saves thousands of dollars a year on energy bills. Other sustainability initiatives the Collier Campus has instituted includecontinued on page 34B32B ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 2013 Steps to the beach. Immaculate unit.

33B ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 2013 I once received a call from an elderly (90s-plus) clients son. Craig, we have a problem, he began. Whats that? I asked. Well, I just flew in from Michigan and when I arrived at dads condo, I noticed a large stack of mail that hasnt been opened. So I asked him if it was okay that I went through it. Go on, I said. Aside from a bunch of unpaid bills and junk mail, I found some bank statements that he never opened or reconciled. So I asked him if it was okay for me to open those. When I did, I found that he had written a $10,000 check to Maria. Who is Maria? I asked. His housekeeper! son responded. And the check was clearly in his handwriting. When I showed him the check, he had no recollection of ever writing the check or giving her that amount of money. Oh my! I said. I think its time that we remove dad from being his own trustee of his trust. Certainly, son said. But this isnt the worst of it. Not only did he give Maria $10,000, he also bought her a new car! How did you discover this? I asked. I found another check to a local car dealer. And he doesnt remember anything at all about that either. So what are the steps that we need to take? I reviewed the provisions of dads trust with son, describing how son has the power to remove dad from remaining in the office as trustee of his own trust. This would change who controlled the brokerage and financial accounts. Its a pretty big deal, akin to taking the keys away from someone who shouldnt be driving an automobile any longer. To make sure that this was the proper course of action, son took dad to a neurologist who reported what we suspected. Dad had some form of dementia, perhaps Alzheimers. So taking the financial keys away from dad was the right thing to do. While none of us ever wants to consider the day that we should no longer handle our financial affairs, it is imperative that our estate planning documents contain provisions that allow for a clean transition to someone that we trust to make these decisions for us. This is where revocable trusts really shine over wills and durable powers of attorney. In a trust, the original grantor of the trust (Dad) acts as his own trustee until he should no longer act. When it comes time to change trustees, there is a clear and definite succession of management. A durable power of attorney, in contrast, is the primary legal document used when there is no revocable living trust. But placing sons name on an account as the attorney-in-fact (thats the name we use for the person to whom the powers are delegated under the durable power of attorney) does not necessarily remove dads name from the account or prohibit dad from writing checks on the account. Furthermore, Durable Powers of Attorney are harder to implement with banks and brokerage firms. This is because the financial institutions are concerned about their own liability when a person purporting to use a durable power of attorney attempts to place their name as a signor on various accounts. The financial institutions generally do not have the same concern with trusts, since the account is titled in the name of the trustee of the trust, and the trust document itself contains the line of succession of trustees. The banks liability is much more limited in that succession. Finally, it is important to note that how someone is to be removed as a trustee in his or her own trust. Many years ago, I used to draft a provision that a physicians statement is necessary to remove the original grantor from acting as his or her own trustee. What I have found is that many physicians are reluctant to sign a statement that removes their patient from acting as their own trustee for a variety of reasons, including the physicians own liability and the HIPPA laws. So I usually recommend that a client name one or more of their trusted relatives, friends or advisors to sit on a disability panel that serves the same purpose if the clients physician wont sign a trustee removal document. These issues are never easy to consider or talk about. Luckily, in dads case, we were able to recover most of the money he gave away, and the dealer took back the car with a full refund. But his experience is a lesson that we should all consider when implementing our estate plans. Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at www.sbshlaw.com.

34B ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 2013Superior InteriorsBring Your New Floor Plan To Life by Marcia FeeneyYou know the old saying, measure twice, cut once? Taking that extra step to make sure your calculations are just right can mean the difference between excitement and disappointment on the day of new furniture delivery. Floor plans to scale are a great first measure. But the best way to make sure youve checked twice is achieved with the use of a little painters tape. Taking the dimensions of a piece of furniture and taping them out on the floor where youre thinking about placing your new furniture is a great way to bring your floor plan to life. This is also a good way for you to actually see the space you will need to accommodate your new furniture pieces. Painters tape is designed to be inexpensive and easy to remove without harming carpet, tile or hardwood floors. In addition, remember to check the size and clearance of doorways and turns especially on staircases, hallways and landings to be sure you can access the room and final area of placement of your new furniture pieces. So the next time youre not quite sure how a new piece will look or how much space you will need take a moment and tape it out. Marcia Feeney is an interior designer on Sanibel/Captiva Islands. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. From page 32BGreenFestrecycling programs, public transportation with Collier Area Transit, maintaining the native vegetation that grows on the campus, and refraining from using pesticides on the grounds. Its important that higher education lead the way in the community, in practice as well as by involving the community in our learning experiences, said Dr. Jones. What better way to do that than by bringing people together to share knowledge?

Try This Connectionby Karen L. Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAMLHave you wondered what creates the dis-ease in your joints, making it so very uncomfortable to bend or move them? A fundamental principle of energy medicine is that if energy is not able to move, is stuck and thus not dynamic, or is just like sludge, then an energetic blockage has been created, resulting in dis-ease. Since most of us collect too much energy, which needs to be expelled, performing an exercise that releases the energy will provide immediate relief. Connecting Heaven and Earth, part of the Five Minute Routine, is just that exercise. It is a powerful stretch, bringing fresh oxygen to the cells, while at the same time releasing that clogged energy. By stretching the torso, the spleen meridian is activated, which plays a vital role in our immune functioning and overall vitality. Use this exercise to clear stale energy, making space for fresh new energy to enter.When is it especially beneficial to do the Connecting Heaven and Earth exercise? Of course, you should do this daily as part of the routine, but use it more if feeling achy or sore in your joints, feeling disconnected, feeling as if you have taken on other peoples energies, have a sense of a cold or flu taking hold, feeling sad or in need of emotional bolstering or if a conflict between your heart and mind exists. Connecting Heaven and Earth Technique: Step 1. Place your hands on the thighs, fingers spread. Envision pulling energy from the earth into your thighs to meet your hands. Step 2. Inhale through the nose while bringing your arms in a circle to meet at your heart center in prayer position. Exhale through the mouth. Step 3. Inhaling through the nose, stretch one arm up and the other arm down with palms facing the heavens and the earth. Stretch fully on the side with the arm that is above, feeling the stretch along the entire side of the body. Exhale through the mouth and return the hands to prayer position. Switch arms and repeat. Do this two more times for each arm. Step 4. Return your arms to your sides, bend at the waist, bend the knees slightly and figure eight your feet while taking two deep breaths. Step 5. As you rise from the bent position, roll the energy up your body with your hands, starting at the feet and rolling it all the way over your head.continued on page 37B Doctors Eyecare CentersROBERT G.

36B ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 2013deaRPharmacistLicorice Helps Chronic Fatigue And Heartburnby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: What is licorice root? I heard you at a lecture talk about it and say something like it could take the place of lots of different drugs, and that it helped with chronic fatigue. WW, Dallas, Texas Licorice root is an herbal remedy often used in Chinese traditional medicine. Its ancient, and was used by the Greeks and Romans for many health concerns such as ulcers, sore throat, asthma, depression, menopause, arthritis, heartburn, gastrointestinal concerns of all sorts and various viral infections (like hepatitis and the flu). Unfortunately, licorice candy (mmm, Twizzlers) doesnt have quite the same effect, but hey, thats not to say you couldnt indulge in that every now and then! Just know that licorice root is a totally different animal, and unlike candy, it has many medicinal properties. Licorice contains healing flavonoids, phytoestrogens and glycyrrhizin. Some of these compounds block the breakdown of a hormone called cortisol in your body which helps you deal with stress. Many of us are walking around with severe adrenal fatigue, and depending on a few other medical factors, licorice root could be just what you need to help cope with stress. It also happens to boost levels of natural interferon, which is an important component of your immune system helping you defend yourself from infection. Licorice root helps soothe irritated membranes while removing mucus from your respiratory tract, making it a great adjunctive remedy for cough and cold. The phytoestrogens also mimic the effect of estrogen, which can help with menopausal symptoms, as well as cognitive function but be careful here because anything that is estrogenic (even mildly so) has the potential to drive certain cancers, especially those of the reproductive tract. A 2011 study performed on rats in China provided evidence that glycyrrhizin could protect against some of the more drastic negative outcomes from spinal cord injuries, by suppressing inflammatory chemicals (called cytokines) and blocking the release of a gene that promotes further inflammation (HMGB1). In a separate human study, it was also observed that licorice root reduces body fat in part by suppressing aldosterone, which is the hormone that tells your body to hold on to salt and water. Licorice root is available in many oral dosage forms. Excessive intake of licorice root can exacerbate hypertension and other heart problems, by disrupting the salt and water balance that your body strictly maintains so ask your doctor if its right for you. It happens compliments of the glycyrrhizin. Some companies now make a deglycyrrhizinated form of licorice root, which is the form that is free of glycyrrhizin. Its called DGL and while this form doesnt really improve adrenal fatigue concerns, it is great for long-term use and specifically helpful for digestive problems of all sorts including gastritis, reflux and heartburn. DGL is best taken in a chewable tablet form about 20 minutes before eating your meals. DGL is a supplement I usually recommend to people who find themselves compelled to take acid blockers and antacids. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: I am the serious type and my girlfriend is always telling me to lighten up and laugh. Why is that so important?A: Your girlfriend is right. Heres why. Norman Cousins, editor of Saturday Evening Review, said: Good spirits are a vital part of life. Denying joy is one of the greatest deprivations on this planet. Cousins ought to know. He was faced with a serious degenerative condition. He began reading Dr. Hans Selyes The Stress of Life and examined what role his emotions played in his illness. He decided that love, hope, humor and laughter did have merit in the healing process. How did he come to this conclusion? Cousins watched classic episodes of the television show Candid Camera. He also spent 10 minutes of each day belly laughing. He discovered the joy of loosening up the abdomen and relaxing the solar plexus muscles. Cousins later wrote the book, Anatomy of an Illness. He mentioned that just ten minutes of laughter allowed two hours of pain-free sleep. Can one literally laugh himself or herself back to health? Why not? Laughter is truly healing. Physiologically speaking, it boosts your immune system and helps the brain release endorphins, which are natural pain relievers and mood lifters. Laughter increases immunity by increasing gamma interferon, which speeds up the production of new immune cells. People who laugh release nervous energy built up from repressed thoughts. Watch some funny movies and just start laughing. See how good you feel and I bet it will be contagious.

37B ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 2013Mom And Me by Lizzie and PryceLizzie and Pryce answer your questions and give advice about aging concerns from a two-generational perspective. A mother and daughter team, Lizzie is a retired RN and health educator, and Pryce is a licensed psychotherapist in private practice who specializes in the care of elders and people with chronic illnesses. Dear Mom & Me, My husband, along with 499 other employees, were assured their jobs were not in jeopardy when his company merged with another company. In a short time, 250 were laid off, then another 200 and finally down to five. My husband was one of the five, and then one day they were told they were no longer employed and they must leave immediately. It was devastating to both of us. We immediately sold our house and rented an apartment, storing what we couldnt use. He tried so hard, went on interviews, but no job offers. At 57, it is very difficult on a man who had never had a job problem before and even harder on me. I became very depressed and had to be treated with medication. We decided to move to another location and there we bought a new house. Two weeks after we moved in, he had a job offer at our old location, so we decided I would stay in the new house and we could see each other every other weekend. I go up alternately to his apartment and he comes down to the house the other weekend; we talk on the phone several times each day. My family and friends are driving me crazy. They are all so anxious to tell me what to do. They say our marriage will never survive our stupid arrangement. They tell us we should sell the new house and move back to the old area. We are getting along just fine with this arrangement. We have made new friends and, for just a few more years, this will make a tremendous difference in our financial security for our retirement. During these difficult times, have you heard what others are doing? Evelyn Dear Evelyn, Economic times are very difficult and new creative living arrangements must be made because the old living arrangements may not be appropriate. Try if you can to ignore these troubling advisors. Some people always know better or think they know better. Frequently these people have difficulty with their own lives, but it is so easy for them to solve other peoples problems. If this new living arrangement works for you and your husband, just ignore their advice and, if necessary, ignore them. When we are living in a particularly difficult time in our lives, it is then we find who our real friends are. The people who are constantly interfering are just satisfying their own emotional needs, wanting to boss other people around. Lizzie Dear Evelyn, Even when advice is well intended from close family or friends, it can be difficult to listen to. If you come up with a pat answer and then change the topic, not allowing someone to give advice, you can be successful in stopping unsolicited advice. Here is what I mean, and to everyone I have used this little technique, I hope you are not reading I appreciate your concern, but, for now, I would appreciate it if we did not talk about it. Then take a short breath and change the subject so, tell me about your day yesterday. Say this every time, be firm and do not return to the topic.

38B ISLAND SUN MARCH 15, 2013United Way Of Lee, Hendry And Glades Campaign Makes Goal The United Way of Lee, Hendry and Glades has concluded the 2012-2013 Campaign and exceeded the campaign goal of $8,060,193. The campaign concluded on February 28th and with a vigorous last push effort by volunteers and United Way board members, the goal was surpassed. Robert Wilson, 2012-13 United Way Campaign chair, and vice president and general manger of Enterprise Holdings Southwest Florida (the parent company on Enterprise, Alamo and National Car Rental) announced that local residents and companies contributed $8,140,974 to the campaign. At the goal announcement, Wilson said, I am very excited to announce that the United Way of Lee, Hendry and Glades has exceeded the campaign goal for the 20th consecutive year. Our wonderful community has done it again! Thank you to every individual and company who gave to the United Way Campaign. Despite the slowly recovering economy, residents of our community realized that many friends and neighbors are still struggling. Because of your generosity, hungry families will receive food, abused children and adults can find shelter, Alzheimers caregivers can have respite, and babies and toddlers can get a healthy start in life. Low to middle income persons can receive free help filing their income taxes, and thousands of meals will be delivered to the home-bound. You gave so others could have to a better life. I am very proud to live in Southwest Florida where people truly care about each other. Making our campaign goal means that the 70 United Way Partner Agencies will receive their full allocation of funds. The needs in our community have remained high this year. Many agencies have lost funding from government and private sources. United Way Partner Agencies 140 programs will be fully funded and hundreds of thousands of our fellow citizens will receive the help they need, he continued. United Way keeps its administrative and fundraising cost very low, returning 91 percent of what is raised to the agencies and programs.

Gurhan Trunk ShowLily & Co Jewelers will host a Gurhan trunk show from 5 to 9 p.m. on Friday, March 22 with a cocktail reception featuring guitar melodies by Dan Confrey. An open house will follow from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, March 23 and from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday, March 24. Gurhan representatives will showcase a vast selection of pieces that are exclusive to the trunk show. An international award-winning jewelry designer, Gurhan is renowned for his hand-crafted quality and distinctive design. Gurhan pieces are unique and unmistakable, said Dan Schuyler, co-owner of Lily & Co. It is exciting to have special pieces only available during the trunk show. It was in the early 1990s when Gurhan was handed a sheet of pure 24-karate gold. He was immediately drawn to its warmth and sensuality and became distinguished for pioneering the revival of pure 24-karate gold jewelry. Before Gurhan, pure gold jewelry had not been made since ancient times. Whether it is the unique design wrought solely in gold or kissed with it in his tritonal sliver line, women around the world seek out Gurhan pieces. His fingerprint on each piece is the essence of the brand hand-hammering and natural imperfections evidence that every piece is painstakingly crafted by hand in Gurhans workshop. I design jewelry to be timeless in its relevance, neither rushing in nor fading out of fashion, says Gurhan. Lily & Co. is at 520 Tarpon Bay Road. Master goldsmith Gurhan creates each piece in his workshop
