Sanibel Closer To Share Of Toll Revenuesby Anne MitchellSanibel could be in line for about $1 million a year for its share of Sanibel tolls collected by Lee County and the revenue could start in the next fiscal year. Vice Mayor Doug Congress said he has made a lot of progress in tracking the countys finances involved in the construction and operation of the causeway. He has been working with Roy Hyman, a consultant hired by Sanibel. Hyman will give a full report on his findings at next months council meeting. Then we will have some decisions to make, Congress said. In the past, Sanibel received up to $800,000 a year from tolls, representing 21 percent, but after a lawsuit Sanibel and a citizens group filed to stop construction of the new, single span bridge, the city had to forgo its cut to make up for the higher price the delay caused. County officials claimed the delays drove the cost from $50 million to $120 million. The revenue share was used to pay for road maintenance on the island. Congress said the first payout for a partial year could be $400,000, with $1 million or so a year thereafter. But theres still work to be done before the county agrees to Sanibels claim.

3 ISLAND SUN APRIL 19, 2013 Work On Shore Haven Moves Forward At Historical VillageThe board of the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village recently met with architect Amy Nowacki, AIA, of Sanibel. Nowacki is now under contract, and a field study has been conducted. We should have preliminary plans shortly, said museum president Dorothy Donaldson.

Donaldson stressed that these are not definite dates, but rather projections. We are working diligently to get as much done as possible, as quickly as possible, without cutting corners on quality and especially on safety, she said. Museum board members Gayle Pence (who has since left the board due to term limits), Jan Halliday (secretary) and Debbie Staley (treasurer) have been meeting with experts and the rest of the board to discuss what are the best plans for Shore Havens renovation. They are shown here in the homes living room after touring the building The front door of Shore Haven, pictured to show its proximity to the walkway.

ISLAND SUN APRIL 19, 20134 Griffith Elected President Of Osprey Foundationby Anne MitchellJim Griffith is the new present of The International Osprey Foundation based on Sanibel. He was elected unanimously at the annual meeting in March and replaces Tim Gardner, who died in November. Griffith is also president of the SanibelCaptiva Audubon Society and he volunteers with several nature-based island organizations, including the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife) and Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation. Like Gardner, Griffith is a longtime and dedicated wildlife advocate. He has been an osprey foundation volunteer and nest monitor since 2000, when he moved to Sanibel. He worked alongside Gardner for many years, building osprey nesting platforms to replace the natural nests that were destroyed by Hurricane Charley in 2004. Prior to Charley, 75 to 80 percent of osprey nests were natural nests, in Australian pines and Norfolk pines, Griffith said. He estimates he and Gardner constructed about 200 platforms since then, with the Lee County Electric Co-op assisting by erecting poles in suitable locations. These days, demand for new nesting platforms is down to about half a dozen per year, he said. Homeowners sometimes call to request a platform after seeing ospreys attempt to nest nearby, and the foundation will advise on location. Some dont pan out, Griffith said, because applicants are asked to first check that their neighbors dont mind having the sometimes noisy and messy birds close by. Since moving to Sanibel, Griffith has embarked wholeheartedly in environmental preservation and protection, helping on bird surveys, rescuing injured wildlife and monitoring snowy plovers and sea turtles. When Griffith, a mechanical engineer, was working for Georgia Power, he also served on the Georgia Non-Game Wildlife Commission, which was trying to create more habitat. Georgia Power, as it cleared land for power lines, began planting vegetation for various bird species. Griffiths office was in a 23-story flat-roof building in Atlanta, and he had the idea of building a hacking box for peregrine falcons, in collaboration with the state. Three baby peregrines were raised in the box and one survived and has since attracted many more to the city. Its progeny continue to nest in the high buildings in Atlanta. (Georgia Power) Employees embraced the idea to the point where they also hacked eagles in the mountains. It has grown and now they are putting devices on their transmission poles to accommodate kestrels, he said. The osprey foundation was founded more than 30 years ago. Volunteers monitor nests from January through April to count the number of chicks that fledge and gather data. The organization also gives research grants each year to applicants around the world, focused mainly on ospreys and other raptors.

Council voted 5-0 Tuesday to sign and send a letter to the Lee County commissioners on the grounds that such activity would pose a threat to the environmentally sensitive waters between Sanibel and Punta Rassa. On March 26, county staff had recommended the commission deny the request, said Councilman Mick Denham. The commissioners ordered a staff evaluation, which will be given at a May 6 management planning workshop. However, Commissioner John Manning, whose district includes Sanibel, supports making an amendment. We need to submit written comments, said Denham. He added that representatives of Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation and the Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge, among others, have objected to the plan. And City Manager Judie Zimomra said SanibelCaptiva Audubon Society has sent the county a letter opposing the plan. Denham said the county has previously approved amendments which have allowed two Jet Ski operations on Captiva and one at Port Sanibel. Resident Questions Business Tiesby Anne MitchellDuring the public comment period of Tuesdays Sanibel City Council meeting, resident Paul LaBonte asked Mayor Kevin Ruane and Vice Mayor Doug Congress how they are affected by Floridas Sunshine Law, which relates to open government regulations, or government in the sunshine. LaBonte asked, he said, because you work very closely together in your practice. He added, You have a very important role with the city. How, legally, is it going to affect the city? City Attorney Ken Cuyler said the Sunshine Law prohibits discussion about city business outside of the posted meetings, and that Ruane and Congress and the rest of the council members are all very aware of that. We talk about it all the time. That is the rule and they abide by it. Cuyler added that an attorney general has ruled that a husband and wife serving on the same committee was perfectly appropriate, so long as they didnt discuss official business outside meetings. Ruane and Congress are certified public accountants working together. Ruane said, I am president and CEO of two businesses. There is no reason to hide it. Doug is CFO of two of those companies. As for the question, he said, Its disheartening. Congress said, This issue was brought up a couple of years ago when I took office. If there are any concerns, you are welcome to have a discussion with me. Council Forgives $20,000 In Finesby Anne MitchellSanibel City Council showed sympathy for a lot owner who racked up more than $20,000 in unpaid fines for failing to remove Brazilian pepper from her lot at 3005 Turtle Gait Lane. In the end, council voted unanimously to allow her to pay the original fine of $741.99 for the code violation. Kara Cuscaden, real estate agent for the woman, asked the council on Tuesday to reduce the fine. She lost her job last April. She took care of two elderly relatives, and her father died last fall, Cuscaden said. The daily late fees have pushed the total to about $27,000. The sale of the lot will close soon and the new owners intend to build within a couple of years, Cuscaden said. The seller will leave $10,000 in escrow from the proceeds to pay a local yard company to remove the pepper, which is considered an alien invasive species that can proliferate if not controlled. It was not her desire to not eradicate the pepper but a lack of financial wherewithall, Cuscaden said. Councilman Mick Denham was concerned about setting a precedent if the accrued fines were eliminated, but councilman Jim Jennings motion to accept the $741.99 was later passed unanimously. The violation will be corrected. The bottom line is we have compliance, Jennings reasoned. This case seems to be screaming of one that needs forgiveness. You cant take blood from a stone, said Vice Mayor Doug Congress. Financial Assistance Program For Citys Summer Day CampThe Financial Assistance Program is for children of parents who work on Sanibel or Captiva Island or live on Sanibel or Captiva Island. The Summer Day Camp Program at the City of Sanibel Recreation Center runs for 10 weeks. A youth enrolled in first grade through eighth grade can attend summer camp for a minimum of one week or a maximum of 10 weeks. An hour seminar about this program will be held at The Fish House Restaurant, 1523 Periwinkle Way on Sanibel, on Tuesday, April 30 beginning at 10 a.m. In the application, the applicants name and address is removed from the application. The application is reviewed by a committee who makes awards based on a fee scale without knowing the identity of the applicant. Awards range from 35 to 80 percent of the program fee. The difference between the amounts awarded and the program fee is the responsibility of the parent/guardian. The awards are based on income of the family, tax returns, income stubs and other financial information. Extraordinary circumstances are considered. The financial assistance program also provides assistance for fun days, holiday camp and the after school program at the Recreation Center. We want to help you; dont be shy. Pass this message and seminar date on to other parents. Dont ignore this opportunity to learn about financial assistance. Your child will be in a safe, fun-filled supervised environment this summer and your mind will be at ease. Most of all, your child will have a wonderful time.

ISLAND SUN APRIL 19, 20138 A Rare Opportunity At Woodring Pointby Barbara Joy Cooley, President, Committee of the IslandsWe have another chance to preserve Sanibels uniqueness, by acquiring a very special parcel of land to protect it against future development. I say another chance because it was only a few years ago that islanders donated funds to the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation in a successful effort to acquire the Bailey homestead. This time, it is another homestead that of the Woodring family which can be similarly preserved. It abuts the J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, so it is the Ding Darling Wildlife Society that is raising the funds to purchase part of the land. The other part is being purchased through Lee Countys Conservation 20/20 program. The Woodring homestead consists of 6.56 acres on Woodring Point. As was true with the Bailey homestead, preserving the Woodring homestead property also creates an intact habitat and wildlife corridor. This vital habitat is home and feeding grounds for over 80 land and marine species. Its preservation is critical, according to biologists. If this land were developed rather than preserved, it could have as many as five homes built upon it. The partnership with Lee County, and a recent anonymous challenge donation, require the raising of $150,000 more at this point. The deadline for fundraising is September 2013. The members of the board of directors of the Committee of the Islands do not want to see this opportunity missed. So each has made a contribution to the fund to purchase the Woodring homestead, and each encourages you to do the same. The members of the Committee of the Islands board include Barbara Joy Cooley, president; Mike Gillespie, vice president; Bud Reinhold, treasurer; Martin Packard, secretary; David Bath; Jim Beauchamp; Mike Cuscaden; Phyllis Gresham; Claire Mallon; Wayne Ponader; Larry Schopp; Carolyn Swiney; and Ruth Woodham. We urge everyone who wants to preserve Sanibels sanctuary character to contribute to the funds to purchase this unique property, said Mike Gillespie. Dont let it get away; do it today! Preservation campaign donations payable to Ding Darling Wildlife Society can be sent to PO Box 565, Sanibel, FL 33957. For more information about the Preservation Campaign, contact Birgie Vertesch at 239-292-0566. The Committee of the Islands was founded in 1975 by those who helped incorporate Sanibel as an independent, self-governing city within Lee County. Guided by the mission of these founders, the Committee seeks to ensure the continuity of good local government, to protect the environment, and to preserve the sanctuary character of our barrier island community. Further information is available on the Committees website at www.coti.org, or via email to coti@coti.org. You can also visit Committee of the Islands on Facebook. The COTI board, Mike Cuscaden, Ruth Woodham, Carolyn Swiney, Phyllis Gresham, David Bath, Claire Mallon, Bud Reinhold, Martin Packard, Barbara Joy Cooley, Jim Beauchamp, Mike Gillespie, Wayne Ponader, and Larry Schopp The historic home on the Woodring homestead property will be preserved.

ISLAND SUN APRIL 19, 201310 PAUL FRANCIS GAETAPaul Francis Gaeta, longtime islander and prominent restaurateur known for his many successful business ventures, died peacefully at Hope Hospice on April 14, 2013. He was 77. Born on September 7, 1935 in Boston, Massachusetts, he was the son of Sebastian and Concetta (DiFronzo) Gaeta. After receiving his masters degree from Boston University, Paul embarked on a successful 20-year career with Hilton Hotels, becoming the corporations youngest general manager at the age of 28. Pauls natural ability and business acumen led him to continue on an illustrious career that included developing and managing several hotel properties around the country. He settled on his beloved Sanibel Island in 1979, where as managing partner and CEO of Sanibel Island Restaurant Group, he became known for his string of successful operations that include The Jacaranda, Iggy & Pauls, Tarwinkles, McTs Shrimp House and Tavern, and The Sanibel Steakhouse, eventually opening four Steakhouse locations in Southwest Florida. An avid and accomplished golfer, Paul was a longtime member of The Dunes Golf and Tennis Club, where he shot four out of his life time achievement of nine holes-in-one, and fostered many cherished friendships. Paul was a gifted conversationalist, passionate and engaged in history, politics, sports, world travel, cooking and the creative arts, and inspired his family in his passions. Paul treasured most his time spent with family, his home always filled with laughter, great conversation, and large family dinners. A mentor and role model to friends, employees and, above all, family, Paul leaves behind to cherish his memory the love of his life and wife of 25 years Margareta Gaeta; children Lee Ellen (Patrick) Harder, Sylvana (Kevin) Fishburn, Sebastian (Narmeen) Gaeta, Christopher Gaeta, Christopher Magnusson and Kim Ciresi; grandchildren Jocelyn Harder, Emmalee and Grant Fishburn, Isabella and Gabrielle Gaeta, Justin, Zach, Amanda and Paul Gaeta, Josefina and Angelina Magnusson, Austin and Alyssa Ciresi; great-grandchildren Brianna, Skylar and Shane; three sisters, Agnes Libertine, Ella Hall, Carol Palumbo and one brother, Anthony Gaeta.

11 ISLAND SUN APRIL 19, 2013 Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellMost islanders, especially our snowbird residents, have thought about the upcoming hurricane season and have secured their hurricane passes from city hall. Whether its a hurricane, fire or a flood, it is a good idea to get out all your insurance policies, review them and take pictures of your residence and its contents. Dennis Schofield, an independent insurance claims adjuster on the island, spoke to Rotary recently regarding how important it is to read those policies and understand that you must comply with all covenants of that policy if you expect to receive payment for damages. Many insurance companies protect their financial profits by making certain policyholders claims are examined with company policy in mind. This usually means sending out an insurance adjuster to investigate your claim, find out how and when your damage was done, and what your personal responsibility is. Schofield said, Twenty percent of claims are denied because clients dont comply with the insurance policy contract. Policy language is sometimes confusing, maybe by design. A recent case that Schofield worked on regarded the home of an island snowbird. The damage was done when he was not in residence for an extended period of time and the insurance company denied the claim. Why? The insurance policy had a 30-day vacancy clause in it and concluded that damage was done during the time the property was vacant for more than 30 days. Schofield and his company challenged that clause by providing records from the property owners caretaker regarding the property and found that the property was not truly vacant according to the policy ruling. Interpretation of policy clauses is tricky. Clauses are written in policy language and unless you know how to read that language, you may not collect denied reimbursement for damages or be given low-ball figures on damages. That is when you contact your own independent insurance adjuster. Another case involved a condo blockage in the sewer pipeline. There was some dispute as to who was responsible for the damage within the condos. The insurance companys position? No coverage for condo damage. Schofield investigated and found a case law decision that superseded that position. The law has a different definition of what is considered sewer pipe damage and how the term is defined. The case was reopened and case law prevailed. All insurance policies have clauses that outline policyholder responsibilities when a disaster happens. Make sure you read and review your responsibilities in the case of damages because your actions can be called into question. If you are denied or the damages paid do not cover the full value of the repairs, that is the time to hire your own adjuster. They understand policy language and have knowledge of case law. The public adjuster puts together the proof in a comprehensible presentation to the insurance company and will most likely help in reversing the insurance companys denial. Regarding hurricane damages, an insurance adjuster will contact you as soon as possible, but priority is given to the most severe losses. Larger hurricane claims will be settled in stages. Compile pictures of the property before any hurricane damage. Create a list of all of your personal property that includes description, age, original cost, place of purchase and estimated replacement cost. If you have any receipts or canceled checks for the items, include them. Most homeowners policies provide for additional living expenses. If the home is uninhabitable due to hurricane damage, most insurers will reimburse you for reasonable expenses over and above your normal living costs.

The program is designed to provide children with enough food for the weekend throughout the year. During the school year, this program is successfully offered to children in grades Pre-K through 8 at The Sanibel School, Summit Christian School and Childrens Education Center of the Islands. FISH continues this program through the summer for those who have been approved for the Free/Reduced Lunch Program through the Lee County School System, and for those who qualify through the FISH intake process. Each week, participating students will be given a bag containing non-perishable, nutritious food items such as peanut butter, jelly, crackers, fruit snacks, ready-toeat pasta, cereal, milk boxes, etc. The bag will be provided for your child on Thursday, or on the last program day of the week. During the summer, bags are distributed from the Rec Center, BIG ARTS, Childrens Education Center of the Islands and the FISH Walk-In Center. This program is completely confidential and at no cost to the participant. The Summer Backpack program will begin the week of May 27. If you have any questions, call Maggie Goldsmith, FISH Director of Operations, at 472-4775. Youth Summer Scholarships Available At FISH The Youth Summer Scholarship Program offered by FISH of Sanibel, Inc. allows us to assist families with their summer child care needs. Some of our summer scholarships include lunch; those that do not may be eligible for our year-round backpack program. Giving children an opportunity to participate in summer programs while giving the family an opportunity to prosper is one of the most rewarding aspects of what our agency does, said Christine Swiersz, Licensed Clinical Social Worker at FISH. Summer programs play a crucial role in the development of school-age children. The experiences and structure provided are invaluable to the child and their family. Children learn to work together, take responsibility, develop creative skills, build independence and self-reliance and gain confidence. All are necessary steps on a childs path to a healthy, productive life. On Sanibel, there are several summer program opportunities for children of all ages, and FISH may be able to assist with summer scholarships to the Childrens Education Center of the Islands, Sanibel Summer Recreation Program and the BIG ARTS Summer Program.

Yom Haatzmaut centers around the declaration of the establishment of the state of Israel by the Jewish leadership led by future Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion on May 14, 1948. This was declared eight hours before the end of the British Mandate of Palestine, which was due to finish on May 15, 1948. The new state was quickly recognized by the Soviet Union, the United States and many other countries, but not by the surrounding Arab states, which marched with their troops into the area of the former British Mandate.

16 ISLAND SUN APRIL 19, 2013 Birds Eye ViewLions And Tigers And Crocodiles, Oh My!by Mark Bird WestallSo, as we continue farther up on the list of the most dangerous animals to humans, we come to the group that creates the basis for our fear of all animals of this type all around the world: the Nile crocodile in Africa and saltwater crocs in India and Indonesia and the big cats of Africa and India. In order to understand the legitimate fear our species has for these predators and why those fears are not as realistic for the predators in the rest of the world, one has to accept Charles Darwins concept of natural selection and evolution. If that is impossible for the reader to accept, then that person might as well stop reading this article right now. That person will never be able to understand how life works on this planet... and probably still believes the world is flat! But if you can accept the Theory of Evolution, let me present my argument as to why our fear of predators in some parts of the world makes sense, but not so much in other parts of the world. First of all, one of the driving forces of natural selection is conservation of energy. If a species is not efficient in conserving energy, another species that is will push the less competitive gene pool into oblivion. I believe that not only do prey species evolve the quick recognition of potential predators, but I also argue that predators evolve the recognition of what is acceptable prey. And probably one of the most important criteria both predators and prey species use to recognize each other is something that can be accomplished with very little intellectual capability the silhouette of an animal. Years ago, I was out on the beach here on Sanibel, and I saw a dolphin surface and take a breath of air only about three feet away from a laughing gull. I found it interesting that the gull did not seem to be alarmed at the sudden appearance of the dolphin and the dolphin seemed to take little notice of the gull. I mean, the dolphin is a large, powerful predator and he could easily have ambushed and eaten the small gull. Why, I bet the gulls flesh even tastes very much like fish. Well, that may be all true, but over the eons, the dolphin species has evolved the recognition of the silhouette of fish as potential prey, not the silhouette of a bird! As far as the dolphin was concerned, it would have been a waste of effort to try to capture the gull. So the idea of the gull being potential prey didnt even occur to him. The dolphin had no interest in finding out the nutritional value of a gull any more than it would be attracted to a coconut floating on the water. The silhouettes of those two objects just do not trigger the animals predatory instincts. Our archaeologists and genome scientists suggest that the human species started in Africa. If that is true, then it makes sense that the big predators of Africa see us as potential prey. I like to tell folks on my canoe tours that, The Nile crocodile and the lion of Africa have been hunting and eating bipedal hominids ever since they were three feet tall and a lot more hairy! Over two million years ago, when Australopithecines (the early ancestors of modern humans) went down to the rivers of East Africa for a drink, the Nile crocodile was there waiting. And lions were also out on the savannah evolving the recognition that those small, delicate-looking creatures walking upright were suitable prey. As our species slowly evolved into Homo sapiens and we increased in size, the predators of Africa were also able to modify their criteria of what was acceptable. But in North America, the crocodilians here have only been looking at our shape and form for what, maybe, 10,000 years? Probably not long enough for natural selection to have evolved the automatic recognition by those species that humans are edible. If they did have that capability, we would have dead tourists all over the place because tourists always seem to be getting too close to alligators in Florida. And thats why I believe the American alligator and crocodile are relatively nonaggressive towards humans and humans have to train these animals to attack humans by offering them free food! But what about tigers and saltwater crocodiles in India and Southeast Asia? Well, going back to the archaeological and genome record once again, we find that Homo erectus colonized that part of the world over one million years ago... definitely enough time for natural selection to instill our silhouette into the minds of those predators as that of potential prey. And once the human species finally figured out how to reach Australia, the saltwater croc species that had evolved hunting Homo erectus in Indonesia were already there waiting for us. So how dangerous are these vicious predators to humans in reality. Does the danger actually presented justify all the time and energy the wildlife programs and Hollywood movies spend triggering our primeval instincts? Worldwide, both crocodilians and the big cats each kill around 800 people annually. Thats a fair number, but for the people of North America lets put those numbers into perspective. Although the national media loves to make sure we all know when there is a mountain lion or alligator attack in this country, in reality, the attacks here are few and far between. For the mountain lion, there were only 88 attacks, resulting in 20 deaths, between the years of 1890 and 2004; continued on page 35 Lunch & Dinner 11 am 9:30 pm 239-472-0223 great food good timesLocated in the Forever Green Shops, Cips Place, is nestled in one of the islands most gorgeous landscape settings.

18 ISLAND SUN APRIL 19, 2013 From Winter To Summer In Just One Weekby Capt. Matt MitchellThe big news on the water this week is how fast our water temperature bounced right back from mid-60s to almost 80 degrees. After what seemed like a never-ending winter this year, we seem to have skipped springtime temperatures and are right into a summer-like highs. Strong southerly winds for a few days in a row seemed to be the set up for some of the best fishing action I can remember in months. Snook, redfish and big trout all went off. With all the bait that has flooded into the sound, the fish are having a party and feeding hard. While fishing one afternoon with longtime client Gillie Russel and a few of his friends from Lake Placid, we had one of the best trips for quality fish I can think of in recent history. The wind was really blowing hard as I picked them up after my morning trip with gusts now over 30 mph. My plan was to stay comfortable and hidden as much as possible from the wind and locate the fish, with live shiners for chum. Our first stop was a couple of shallow mangrove islands way back in the mantee zone around St. James City. This spot does not get hit too often as it is a long idle for boaters. The islands have some sand holes off them, which usually start to hold some good redfish from mid-May and right into the fall. The key to the fish being here is if it is holding schools of mullet, and as I approached it, I could see mullet jumping out of the water. Although I had not fished this spot since last fall, it was a perfect set-up and worth a shot for 10 minutes or so on the way out. We pitched live pinfish under floats up into the sand holes and it did not take long for the redfish to start feeding. For over an hour, we caught and missed big redfish after big redfish. After quickly getting our three quality keepers in the live well, we moved on to the next key. Just like the first one it held the redfish, too. We also got a nice bonus 28-inch snook, along with a few over-the-slot reds pushing right around the 30-inch mark. Moving on to catch-and-release snook fishing, I opted to cross the sound to a shoreline that had been holding a few quality fish all week. The crossing was rough going, but we took our time and stayed dry. Once we got set up and tucked away, it was manageable and I started chumming with live shiners. It did not take long for the snook to start exploding on the free feast. Picking out the largest shiners in the live well, we hooked them up on a freeline rig and pitched them up close to the trees. After losing a few snook and catching a few big jacks, I continued to chum the fish with a dozen or so shiners at a time. The first real big snook we hooked into just could not be turned and after a 50-yard-plus drag-burning run, it made it to a sharp mangrove branch and parted ways. Then, we quickly hooked another big snook that ran down the shoreline the other way, quickly taking 75 yards of line as it followed the mangrove shoreline. I would have bet the farm on the snook breaking the angler off, but then the snook hit the shallow water and made the turn to come out into the open water. After a nerve-wracking fight, the 18-pound, 37-inch snook came boatside for a few quick photos. Gillie, who has spent many years fishing the Everglades for snook, was next up. He hooked into another big snook under the trees and the fish jumped, shaking its head against the mangrove roots and spitting the hook. I quickly put him on another jumbo shiner and he cast to the same spot and hooked right back up. This fish screamed the drag and ran way up under the trees. Putting the rod tip down deep in the water, Gillie managed to gently reel the fish clear of the roots with a little of his Chokoloskee magic. After a couple more runs out in the open water, he had a 32-inch, 12-pounder to the boat to be released. The snook and redfish bite continued to go off for most of the week. While targeting snook and reds, we also caught some massive trout with a few pushing right around 26 inches. Getting on the hot bite was all about finding a shoreline or oyster bar with the right set-up and the right tide. Some days it would take a few stops to get it right, then other days it was the first stop. Springtime fishing with live shiners has to be some of the most exciting fishing of the year. One of the things that makes it so appealing is the visual aspect of chumming with live shiners. You quickly realize you have found the right spot when you see the hungry fish come up busting the baits on the surface.Capt.

As a direct result of her efforts to introduce the Sanibel wildlife clinic to the national stage, CROW has been invited by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and Mote Marine, a research center and aquarium in Sarasota, to take part in clinical trials of a new drug to treat brevetoxicosis. As the primary researcher of the study, Jordan Donini, assistant wildlife rehabilitator, is aiding Dr. Heather in documenting CROWs efforts to advance wildlife medicine. We are helping with clinic trials in cooperation with NOAA and Mote Marine Laboratory on this drug called cholestyramine, which is a bile acid binding drug. They think that the brevetoxin from red tide is going to attach to some of the bile acids in the seabirds and sea turtles. Ninety percent of bile acids are reabsorbed into the intestine area of the animal. What cholestyramine does is prevent or limit the reabsorption. We give cholestyramine, which is still under the testing phase, to patients to hopefully speed up the recovery process of the red tide poisoning. Five Double-crested cormorants are currently being treated at the clinic; a total of 30 cormorant patients will take part in the study. Half of the birds will be administered the drug while the other half will act as a control and will receive traditional treatment. We will opportunistically use it on sea turtles, if we get them in, which Mote is already doing. At this time, we dont have a large sample size of sea turtles coming in with red tide, added Donini. Cormorants are ideal subjects for the study because they are most commonly and severely affected by exposure to red tide. CROW treats hundreds of the seabirds every year, making them one of the most frequently seen patients at the clinic. I feel good about what we do. We are doing our best to make sure that animals are not suffering and more importantly, we are doing conservation medicine; we have our finger on the pulse of wildlife health in our area, said Dr. Heather. CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Inc.) is a non-profit wildlife hospital providing veterinary care for native and migratory wildlife from our local area. The hospital accepts patients seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mail donations to P.O. Box 150, Sanibel, FL 33957. Call 472-3644 or visit www.crowclinic.org. Double-crested cormorants, like this one, are taking part in a study of a new drug to combat brevetoxicosis caused by exposure to the algal blooms responsible for red tide

21 ISLAND SUN APRIL 19, 2013 Early Risers Help Save Distressed Manateesubmitted by Carrie ThompsonWaking up early on Captiva Island is easy to do. The sun rises over Pine Island Sound and invites you to the dock to come look at the water and sit peacefully. That is exactly what Nick from Wyckoff, New Jersey did on April 10. New to the island and interested in all kinds of fish and wildlife, he summoned his father when he saw a bunch of manatee in the water. They quietly called up to me to come down and see them. When I arrived, I knew something was wrong. There were five or six manatee swimming around one. All of them appeared to be taking their flippers and keeping one manatee upright. She was rolling, batting her tail up and down, arching her back, curling around and appeared stuck or in severe distress. I thought it best to call Jensens Marina or CROW, but Nick said that there was a number on the sign to call in case of a manatee emergency. That number was for the FWCC or Florida Wildlife Conservation Center. Clever lad to notice that. Kristy at the emergency number asked us many questions about the manatee. She advised us that it appeared as though the manatee had red tide poisoning. Then, Kristy asked us if we could reach the animal, which we could. She wanted us to hold its head up above the water so that it could breathe. With red continued on page 24 Wyckoff and Ridgewood, New Jersey kids keeping the manatees head above water A law enforcement officer helps the manatee keep her head above water Were Seafood Savvy, are you?

Seasonal My Stars FOR WEEK OF APRIL 22, 2013ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You easily handle your tasks this week, thanks to those high energy levels that never seem to run down. But pace yourself, Lamb, for the demanding week ahead. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) With the arts dominant this week, you might want to pick up any of those creative projects youve neglected. A workplace situation benefits from some fresh insight. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Music helps replenish your energy levels. Play your CDs if you must. But a live concert could prove more rewarding, especially if you go with that very special someone. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Close friends reach out to help perk up your lagging social life. That workplace situation also eases, leaving you time to do more fun things by weeks end. LEO (July 23 to August 22) A revelation clears up that perplexing job-related problem. Some changes will have to be made, which, no doubt, will meet with the Big Cats roaring approval. Good luck. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Reaching out to someone in need is the noble thing to do. But try to restrain the temptation to add a lecture -no matter how well-intended -to your good deed. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) There could be another tough challenge to face before the month is over. But all that hard work is winning you lots of important recognition from your peers. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Keeping to your work schedule could prove difficult with all those personal distractions. Best advice: Stay with it. Therell be time later for socializing. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Jumping hurdles this week might be vexing for most, but not for the sage Sagittarian, who recognizes that meeting a challenge can open up opportunities. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) More obstacles might be thrown in your path as you try to finalize a new agreement. But the sure-footed Goat ignores the stumbling blocks and stays the course. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) We know the Water Bearer takes pleasure in giving to others. But why not let someone else enjoy the experience too by accepting that offer of help? PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You might find you need to ease up on your hectic schedule this week. Dont fret about it. It could be helpful to take a break and replenish your energy supply. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a way of finding practical solutions to complex problems, and you do it with grace. On April 28, 1789, three weeks into a journey from Tahiti to the West Indies, the HMS Bounty is seized in a mutiny led by Fletcher Christian, the masters mate. Captain William Bligh and 18 of his loyal supporters were set adrift in a small, open boat. Bligh and his men reached Timor in the East Indies in June, after a voyage of about 3,600 miles. On April 24, 1800, President John Adams approves legislation to appropriate $5,000 to establish the Library of Congress. The first library catalog, dated 1802, listed 964 volumes and nine maps. Twelve years later, the British army invaded the city of Washington and burned the Capitol, including the then 3,000-volume Library of Congress. On April 26, 1937, during the Spanish Civil War, the German military tests its powerful new air force -the Luftwaffe -on the Basque town of Guernica in northern Spain. One-third of Guernicas 5,000 inhabitants were killed or wounded, and fires engulfed the city and burned for days. On April 23, 1954, Hank Aaron hits the first home run of his Major League Baseball career. Twenty years later, Aaron became baseballs new home-run king when he broke Babe Ruths long-standing record of 714 career homers. On April 27, 1963, Margaret Annemarie Battavios very first single, I Will Follow Him, reaches No. 1 on the U.S. pop charts. At age 15, the singer better known as Little Peggy March became the youngest female performer ever to top the Billboard Hot 100. On April 22, 1970, Earth Day, an event to increase public awareness of the worlds environmental problems, is celebrated in the United States for the first time. Millions of Americans participated in rallies, marches and educational programs. On April 25, 1983, the Soviet Union releases a letter that Russian leader Yuri Andropov wrote to Samantha Smith, an American fifth-grader from Manchester, Maine, inviting her to visit his country. Andropovs letter came in response to a note Smith had sent him in December 1982, asking if the Soviets were planning to start a nuclear war. It was pioneering science-fiction author H.G. Wells who made the following sage observation: Moral indignation is jealousy with a halo. In a match between a 200-pound mountain lion and a 20-pound porcupine, the lion is likely to be the loser -and will probably die if it tried to take a bite of the desired prey. In an odd coincidence, President Abraham Lincoln had a secretary named Kennedy, and President John F. Kennedy had a secretary named Lincoln. Kennedy the secretary told Lincoln the president that he shouldnt go to Fords Theatre the night he was shot; Lincoln the secretary tried to convince Kennedy the president not to go on a trip to Dallas, where he was shot. Those who study such things say that Americans watch more television during the months of January and February than at any other time during the year. Strawberries have more vitamin C than oranges. You may not realize it, but youve probably seen pictures of the French village of Mont-St.-Michel. Its a picturesque place, a tiny islet in the English Channel with an 8th-century abbey at the top of a high hill, surrounded by stone houses and cobbled streets. It wasnt always an islet, though; the hill on which the abbey sits was once surrounded by an oak forest, and the shore was miles away. That all changed in the year 725, though, when an earthquake struck the region. A tidal wave washed over the forest, leaving a vast tidal plain in its wake. Ever since, twice a day, 40-foot tides completely surround MontSt.-Michel. The fundamental cause of trouble in this world is that the stupid are cocksure while the intelligent are full of doubt. -Bertrand Russell THIS WEEK IN HISTORY STRANGE BUT TRUE THOUGHT FOR THE DAY22 ISLAND SUN APRIL 19, 2013


23 ISLAND SUN APRIL 19, 2013 Plant SmartSoft-Stem Bulrushby Gerri ReavesSoft-stem bulrush (Schoenoplectus tabernaemontani) is one of many bulrushes found in Florida wetlands. This perennial can grow up to 10 feet tall in mud or shallow water in fresh or brackish conditions. A member of the sedge family and a native of the state, it is commonly found near or in marshes, streams, ponds, canals, and boggy areas. The stems arise from a network of rhizomes, or horizontal unground stems, which creates habitat for fish. Bulrushs other environmental benefits include flood control, filtering excess nutrients and pollution from runoff, prevention of soil erosion, and the stabilization of ponds or river banks. Planted at the edge of water, it makes an effective screen and provides cover and food for birds. The grass-like stems and attractive year-round blooms are a pretty addition to a water garden, too. The smooth green stem tapers to a point at the top. The stem is a tubular structure made up of sheaths. It yields to pressure or feels spongy when squeezed. The hanging or drooping inflorescences at the top of the stems spill into spikelets, each with up to 50 flowers. The bristles on the small narrow reddish brown nutlets are barbed. Native Americans had many uses for bulrushes. They wove the stems into mats, used the dried and beaten rootstock to make bread and ate the young rootstock tips. To propagate soft-stem bulrush, divide the rhizomes and plant a piece in shallow water. Sources: Native Florida Plants by Robert G.

ISLAND SUN APRIL 19, 201324 From page 21Manateetide poisoning, all of the muscles in the body tense up, convulse and make it impossible to stay above the water. The animal was unable to put its nose above the water to breathe, and unless we held it up, she would drown. Nick, Devin, Lindsay, Samantha, Jack and Carrie held her up for one hour until the wildlife law enforcement arrived to provide help. If it werent for them, the manatee now known as Nicky Bubbles would have died. Almost two hours later, the FWCC arrived with their truck. A sling was put underneath Nicky Bubbles and we carried this 10 foot long, 900-pound gentle giant under the dock and to the other side of the waters edge. We then carried her up and out of the water, put her onto the lift and into the truck. She was taken to the Tampa Zoo for her treatment and recovery. Because of the kindness of humans, this beautiful creature lived. Truly, it was the best day of my life. As she pulled away, the crowd of 15 people clapped, waved farewell to the manatee and at that moment, just before the door was closed, Nicky Bubbles waved her tail at us as if to say thank you and goodbye.

We got a lot of attention here in Captiva, since we were working right there on the street. Everyone gets excited when they see a production taking place. During the photo shoot, which occurred from Monday through Wednesday, six female models were used. The images will be seen in the July and August 2013 issues of Good Housekeeping. Last year, the fashion photo spreads they did were four to eight pages, noted Stevens. Island Girl Locations & Productions thanked Captiva business owner Sandra Stilwell for donating the use of a parking space on Andy Rosse Lane for their production trailer.There was a 20-person crew out here for several days. They ate all their meals out here, shopped out here, rented bikes and stayed out here through the entire photo shoot, Stevens added. All of those people are contributing to the local economy, which is great for the islands. From page 2Summer HoursARTS just past Sanibel City Hall.

34 ISLAND SUN APRIL 19, 2013 Fully Committed Is Hilarious, Hectic Fun At Strauss Theater BIG ARTS Herb Strauss Theater, the only professional theater on Sanibel, presents Fully Committed now through Saturday, April 27. Playwright Becky Mode constructed this solo comedy of desperation by telling the story of Sam, an out-of-work actor who works the reservation line in a desperately trendy and fully booked New York City restaurant. This hectic, highly-entertaining production was directed by Jeremy Gold Kronenberg and stars Trey Compton, who plays Sam and 40 other roles. In Fully Committed, Sam juggles multiple clamoring calls from Very Important People, or those who consider themselves as such, and the chef, who has the rough language of a Mafia hit man but is very sensitive about his polenta. Dozens of characters inundate Sam with requests, advice, threats, curses, complaints and bribes. In the Island Sun, this one-man show is called, ... a hilarious 90 minutes of laughs and mayhem. A reviewer for The Fort Myers News-Press writes, Compton swaps characters with a simple swivel of his stool or a change in posture, and he uses an arsenal of funny accents and facial expressions to great effect. All with dead-on comedic timing and a boundless energy (his Latino chef and his little old lady in a wheelchair are particularly hilarious). A Naples News reviewer raves, Trey Compton (so delightful to watch on stage) makes 90 minutes disappear in a flash, and adds, his electric stage presence allows him to transform into dozens of characters. Local theater fans will remember Compton, who not only wowed audiences as Freddy Benson in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels but also played a plethora of characters in the Herb Strauss Theaters production of Das Barbec. In 2013, he received glowing reviews for his many comedic roles in Spamalot at the Strauss. Comptons New York and regional theater credits include the Emmy Award-winning Passion: Live at Lincoln Center (starring Patti LuPone), Like You Like It, Altar Boyz, Little Shop of Horrors, Stones in his Pockets, Legally Blonde and the world premiere of the musical Love Incorporated. He holds a BFA in Theater from Pace University in New York. Performances of Fully Committed are 8 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday until April 27. Tickets are $42, with children 17 and under $20. Groups of 10 or more are eligible for discounts. Call the box office at 472-6862 for tickets. Fully Committed is supported by Herb Strauss Theater Season Sponsor The Sanibel Captiva Trust Company and Show Sponsor Landgraphics and Casa Ybel Resort. BIG ARTS Herb Strauss Theater is located at 2200 Periwinkle Way on Sanibel. Detailed show information and general information about the venue can be found online at www.BIGARTS.org.

Nobody has ever been killed by an American crocodile in the U.S. As far as Sanibel goes, luckily for the Florida panther, one has not been sighted here for many years, for I doubt we would let it remain here long. Our old American crocodile engendered exceptional acceptance when she nested in peoples yards because she seemed to know which islanders would watch out for her (and Im not only talking about me), but sadly she died in 2010 and her replacement has been keeping a very low profile. But unfortunately for the much more numerous alligators on Sanibel, the island has developed a new attitude toward that species. As most of you know, two out of the 23 deaths by alligators in Florida happened here on Sanibel. And most of you who read these articles I write every week also know that we have had (and still have) a problem with people feeding the gators or, at least, throwing pebbles at them which simulates feeding behavior. Three weeks ago, I caught a couple throwing pebbles at a gator at the exit to the refuge and I had to explain to them about my two friends being killed by gators that had been fed, and the woman asked what my friends did to get themselves attacked. Im sorry... I have a difficult time keeping my emotions in check around such intelligence! As I have said many times before, we probably needed to have a purge on the island concerning gators because so many of the big ones had been trained to approach people expecting handouts. But if thinking that killing those gators has solved our problem with the feeding issue and that we can still claim to be the environmentally-friendly community, weve got another think coming! Smaller gators on Sanibel may increase human safety, but it also means less breeding success for nesting wading birds since smaller gators do not keep nest-robbing raccoons at bay. The old Sanibel would have understood that it was the people doing the feeding that made gators really dangerous. The old Sanibel would have reacted to the deaths here by making a big stink in Tallahassee about the unenforceability of the anti-feeding laws and not quit until suitable legislation was passed. But what the new Sanibel did was only blame the gators. A former city council member and mayor, Mark Bird Westall has owned and operated Canoe Adventures, Inc. on Sanibel for over 33 years.

ISLAND SUN APRIL 19, 201338 Monday Night MovieLike Someone In Loveby Di SaggauThe BIG ARTS movie for Monday night, April 22 is Like Someone in Love. The film opens in a crowded Tokyo bar and this sets the pace for a great deal of what comes next. We see people talking and drinking as a jazz soundtrack plays in the background, but what we hear is the voice of a young woman talking on the phone to her boyfriend. She is pretending to be somewhere else. We soon learn theres a reason for this. Whats seen, whats heard and whats really happening become the method of operations for the relationship at the center of Like Someone in Love. The film constantly toys with the expectations of both its characters and the audience, transforming a classic three-way tale of mistaken identities into something much more mysterious and troubling. The film is impeccably acted and infused with tremendous empathy for its three leads. A young woman and two men constitute the unlikely and dangerously unstable triangle of the plot. Akiko is a student who moonlights as a call girl, and conceals her night work from her possessive and occasionally violent boyfriend, Nonaki. Akikos new client is a professor of sociology, Takashi, an elderly gentleman who is not as much interested in having sex with her, as he is interested in the exquisite pleasure of her company. Directed by Abbas Kiarostami, who hails from Iran, the Japanese drama Like Someone in Love gives a glimpse into how three different definitions of love can find themselves quietly at odds. The interactions between the three leads are always convincing and most always compelling. The New York Times calls it, A film of intense visual beauty. Its cinematography embodies the ambiguities in the story of an encounter between an elderly professor and a student moonlighting as a call girl. The film was nominated for the Palme dOr at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. The Los Angeles Times wrote, From moment to moment the low-key intrigue threatens to slip into Hitchcock territory; when it does its not in the form of high-wire suspense but in a burst of understated playfulness. The film will stay with you for a long time. Marsha Wagner and John Jones will lead the discussion after the film. 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. Supporters are Sanibel Taxi and Jerrys Foods of Sanibel. For tickets, stop by BIG ARTS, call 395-0900, e-mail info@BIGARTS.org, or log on to www.BIGARTS.org. APRIL 23-24Barbara B.

Poets Corner selected by Tanya HochschildOde To A Garden Slugby Derek FellHey, wherere you going you creepy crawly? your ugliness protects you surely. I cant bear to touch you munching slowly over every succulent leaf and petal. Though faith! I fear you dine too grandly in my precious garden. Begone! In someone elses plot go ramble there you may creep and crawl and scramble with kindred, slithering beasties eat heartily on less precious fare, bereft of lettuce, beets and cabbage to feed your ravenous appetite. Good grief! How bold your eyes and nose stand out. As plump and shiny as any grape, oh for some nasty powder or lethal poison to snuff your life out, and save my plants from your bitter bite. Good riddance to your sticky trails! never more to hide neath straw bales, to forage more and make me rail. For I have a hefty boot to stop your evil ends, and a hungry toad to rid me of your friends. Submitted by resident Derek Fell, author of numerous garden books. Fell was inspired to write about a slug after reading his favorite Scottish poet Robert Burns poem Ode to a Flea. 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.

Copies of Prismatic are available for checkout at the Sanibel Public Library and the Captiva Memorial Library. Emms novels are also available in local bookshops and online retailers.

Together they fight to make change, while still trying to live as normal teenagers in a world that is now so unfamiliar. Sarah Elle Emms creativity shines through this novel and your only disappointment will be not having the sequel on hand and ready to read.

The possibility of a way out arises when Rain discovers an organized resistance called The Freedom Front, and learns that she, along with many other multi-racial people, has special abilities. Determined to overcome her situation, Rain sets out on a mission with the resistance that will fill her life with wonder, romance and the undying hope for a better world.

2B ISLAND SUN APRIL 19, 2013 CASI Adds New Board MembersLee Schaff, president of Tennisplace, and Dru Doyle, board member at Oceans Reach, have joined the board of CASI, the Condominium Associations of Sanibel, Inc., according to CASI president Linda Naton. They join Sundial East president Carmine Rende, former Mariner Pointe president Dick Weiss and Mary Nelson, former president of Beachcomber on the CASI Board. Sonja Smith Suitor is the CASI Executive Director. She also represents CASI as a board member on the Sanibel-Captiva Chamber of Commerce and serves on the chambers governmental affairs committee. CASI is just winding up its 2013 membership drive. One-hundred-and-one of the 107 condominium associations and multi-family-building homeowner associations on Sanibel belong to CASI. These associations represent 3,122 of the 3,141 condominium property owners on the island. About 2,200 of these units are in resort properties. CASI was incorporated in April of 1980 by a small group of condominium owners headed by Will Flato, a former City Manager. Because condominium owners are mostly seasonal residents and non-voters, Flato knew they would be well served to stay in touch with each other and island leaders. Today, CASI still works toward the objectives established by its founders: To provide a forum for communication between associations; To provide unified communication with the city, county and state agencies on items of mutual interest; To aid law enforcement and other city agencies in security and disaster response efforts; To provide educational programs for the membership; To publish periodic newsletters on items that may affect members, including legislative issues. In addition to hosting member breakfasts each season and a lunch to honor managers each summer, CASI attends city council meetings regularly and planning commission meetings when condominium issues are under discussion. Nearly 500 condominium owners have asked to be on the CASI e-mail distribution list. They receive periodic items of interest and participate in an online bulletin board to network their questions and solutions. CASI board members Dru Doyle of Oceans Reach and Lee Schaff of Tennisplace Womens Legacy Fund Spring LuncheonThe Womens Legacy Fund of the Southwest Florida Community Foundation will hold its 6th annual Spring Luncheon on Thursday, May 9 from 11:15 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Fiddlesticks Country Club for contributors to the fund and women who are interested in making a difference in their community. The luncheon will include an update on the impact WLF funding recently had on the issue of children facing homelessness in our community. A cornerstone of the WLF is contributors taking an active and engaged role in choosing their annual grant focus area each year. At the spring luncheon, contributors will also be choosing the next focus area from the issues of mentoring high school seniors for post-secondary opportunities and career planning, funding a regional online scholarship and financial aid hub and funding high school STEM initiatives. The newest WLF Angels will also be announced during the event. The Angel honorary designation is for mothers, sisters, aunts, daughters, grandchildren, friends, loved ones and community leaders, either living or deceased, who have had a special impact on the lives of those around them. WLF members can make the special women in their lives a WLF Angel with a minimum contribution of $1,000 in their name. In just five years of existence, the WLF has been able to provide $75,000 in grants to benefit people and communities in Southwest Florida. Currently, the Fund has more than $225,000 in endowed funds that will help fund local issues now and in the future.

6B ISLAND SUN APRIL 19, 2013 Sanibels Scot Congress Was A Witness To History At The Mastersby Ed FrankThe history, the drama, the ambiance nothing in sports compares to the excitement of The Masters and last weeks Masters was no exception. But can you imagine actually watching the tournament on those hallowed grounds? Thats exactly what Sanibel businessman Scot Congress experienced. As a guest of Rolex, one of The Masters sponsors, Congress said it was the most exciting sports event he has ever seen, even exceeding the national championships won by his beloved Florida Gators. He said the official start of the tournament was highly emotional and probably most memorable. Watching the three former champions Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus teeing off, one after another, while the announcer shares some of their many accomplishments at ages 84, 77 and 74, was the highlight for me. It was great to see them hit the ball straight down the middle, exactly like they had done throughout their careers, he said. Rolex had a suite on the first fairway, where Palmer and Nicklaus visited. They sat right down and had lunch with us, Congress said. He also met the world champion skier Lindsey Vonn, the girlfriend of Tiger Woods, who also was a guest in the suite. It was a comfortable place to ice her knee due to her recent skiing accident. He said he has never seen a golf course as immaculate as Augusta National. The fairways looked like indoor carpet. And the setting is very untraditional and un-commercialized, with few items being sold other than Masters products, Congress said. Congress is owner of Congress Jewelers on Sanibel, one of the largest Rolex dealers in the country. He didnt see a single ticket being sold throughout his stay, as it is closely monitored. They also do not allow cell phones on the premises. I went through some sort of withdrawal from my smartphone. If they find you with one either turned on or off, they will confiscate the phone and revoke your attendance for life, so we left them behind. continued on page 8B Scot Congress Development CityYear BuiltSquare FootageListing PriceSelling PriceDays on Market No Subdivision Sanibel1996 4,575 4,450,0003,850,000 333 Palaco GrandeCape Coral2008 5,319 1,695,9001,425,000 127 Shell Harbor Sanibel1989 3,210 1,495,0001,375,000 48 Shell Harbor Sanibel1971 3,094 1,395,0001,100,000 371Venetian GardensFort Myers Beach2002 2,585 989,000815,000 226 Cape Coral Cape Coral2003 2,662 935,000750,000 203 Whiskey Creek TerraceFort Myers1967 3,036 695,000695,000 34Cape CoralCape Coral2013 2,593 627,500626,000 16 Beachview Country ClubSanibel1985 1,812 699,000625,000 309 Cape Coral Cape Coral2002 2,496 679,000620,000 142Courtesy of Royal Shell Real EstateTop 10 Real Estate Sales

8B ISLAND SUN APRIL 19, 2013 From page 1BNew Playgroundschool district began installing playground equipment in October 2012, while the citys equipment was installed a few weeks ago. To see the school district and the rec center work together and produce something like this shows a tremendous partnership, which will have wonderful benefits for our entire community, said Mayor Kevin Ruane, who cut the ribbon at the playground, along with Vice Mayor Doug Congress, City Councilmen Marty Harrity and Jim Jennings, Sanibel School Principal Barbara Von Harten and parent volunteer Jennifer McSorley. I never had anything this great when I was growing up, added Ruane. The state-of-the-art playground, geared for school-age children (five to 12), contains more than a dozen components including: Twist N Twirl Spinners Spiral Tube Slide Rock Climb Challenge D-Ring Horizontal Ladder Crawl Tube with View Ports Track Ride Tri-Wing Flyer Slide Vertical Chain Wall Two-Section Climb Across Vertical Ladder Mountain Climber Three-Level Chinning Bar Funnel Bridge Parallel Bars Three Section Biggo Swing Set Apollo Rotating Web Climber According to McSorley, they wanted to select playground features that werent available anywhere else on the island. When we picked out each component that would work best for our kids, we used feedback received from parents, teachers and the children themselves, she said. We wanted things that would be unique and things that would get a lot of use. The playground will only be used by students of The Sanibel School while school is in session. After school, the facility may be accessed via the rec center. They did a great job on this playground, said Congress. Its spread out nicely, so everythings not on top of each other. This is a great partnership between the city and the school board, added Jennings. Every senior on this island has a grandchild who is going to enjoy this playground. Theyre all gonna love it. All of the equipment on the playground created in the schools royal blue and tan colors is ADA accessible. Native vegetation plantings that surround the facility will provide shade. From page 6BScot CongressLiving without it was definitely different. I got lost from my group for hours several times. That would not have happened with communications, Congress laughed. He summed up his visit to The Masters this way: The experience of seeing this famous course was moving. It is so great to see the traditions of their reputation being preserved in a tasteful way. It has been documented that a ticket to The Masters is the toughest ticket in all of sports. Scot Congress now knows why. Miracle 11-0 In Season Start The Fort Myers Miracle baseball team has begun the new season with the best start in team history. With Monday nights 4-1 victory over the Palm Beach Cardinals, the Miracle remained perfect in the young season with an 11-0 record. A victory Tuesday night (after our newspapers deadline), would match the longest winning streak in franchise history. The 1995 and 2007 Miracle each won 12 games in a row. Monday nights 4-1 win was highlighted by strong pitching by Tom Stuifbergen, who hurled 7-2/3 innings of shutout baseball while scattering just four hits. Following Tuesday and Wednesday home games this week against Palm Beach, the red-hot Miracle are on the road before returning to Hammond Stadium next Friday and Saturday to face Charlotte. Everblades Defeat Elmira In Round One Of Playoffs The Florida Everblades defeated Elmira, 7-2, on Monday to win Round One of the Kelly Cup playoffs, four games to two. The victory Monday night at Germain Arena moves the Everblades into the Eastern Conference semi-finals of the ECHL. Florida is the defending Kelly Cup champions. After splitting the first two games of Round One against Elmira, the local hockey team won two of three on the road before returning to Germain on Monday to clinch the series win.

10B ISLAND SUN APRIL 19, 2013 Doane Leads Sanibel To Win Over North Fort Myers In 8-Ball MatchupDave Doane was the hero of the annual 8-Ball Challenge match between the Sanibel 8-Ball Pool League and the North Fort Myers Senior 8-Ball League, contested this year at American Legion Post 123 on April 15. Each side selected its four top players to compete at the season-ending event for both leagues. Matches were set by blind draw and each player shot four games against his opponent. After two hours of play, the match stood at an 8-8 tie. One players name from each team was then drawn from a hat for a single game, sudden death game to determine the team winner. Sanibels Doane then edged North Fort Myers shooter, Johnny Graverson, to hand the victory to Sanibel. The home-and-home series is now tied at 3-3. Playing for Sanibel were Rich Ennis, Bob Buntrock, John Gonzalez and Doane. The North Fort Myers players were Harry Christopher of Del Tura, Terry Lilly of Tamiami Village and Johnny Graverson and Tom Welsh, both of Pine Lakes Golf and Country Club. The Sanibel 8-Ball Pool League played 21 weeks this season, with eight teams required to play two Monday night shifts, since American Legion Post 123 has the only two pool tables on the island available for public play. By comparison, the North Fort Myers League had 10 teams from seven North Fort Myers communities. Their league played 18 weeks and utilized 16 tables in their various communities to play their matches. On April 8, the Sanibel League ended its regular season with an Awards Banquet hosted by Post 123. Cash awards went to the eight league teams: Bathroom Magic $840 for first place; Bunts Ball Busters $706 for second place; Sanibel Caf $571 for third place; Odd Balls $437 for fourth place; Island Lifers $302 for fifth place; Deep Pockets $235 for sixth place; Sandycappers $168 for seventh place; and Fresh Legion Crew $101 for eighth place. Rich Ennis won an award as the leagues top percentage shooter at 76 percent. Connie Martin was the leagues top woman percentage shooter at 45 percent. Bob Buntrock and Rich Ennis had the most 4-0 nights and Rich Ennis won again with the most 3-0 nights. John Earle was named the leagues most improved player for the year. Kip Johnson was awarded the Reverse Top Percentage Award. Jeff Brown received needed relaxation aids to help cure his 8-Ball yips and Dave Doane was awarded a Survival Kit of food delicacies to help maintain his blood suger level. Textbooks entitled How To Play Pool Right were presented to Dennis Bender, Rich McCurry, Kip Buntrock, Chris Pickelsimer, Kip Johnson, Tom Walters, Tracy Walters, Larry Hancock and John Riegert. They were selected by a committee of their peers as the players needing the most help to improve for next season. More than 200 men and women have played in the league in the past six years.continued on page 26B Members of the Sanibel team, from left, Dave Doane, Rich Ennis, Bob Buntrock and John Gonzalez Members of the North Fort Myers team, from left, Johnny Gaverson, Pine Lakes Golf and Country Club; Terry Lilly, Tamiami Village; Harry Christopher, Del Tura; and Tom Welsh, Pine Lakes Golf and Country Club Mens Golf Results At Sanibel Island Golf ClubOn Saturday, April 13, the Mens Group played a Modified Stableford Tournament at Sanibel Island Golf Club.

11B ISLAND SUN APRIL 19, 2013 Tournament To Benefit Komen Foundationby Jeff LysiakThe 1st annual Sanibel Island Doubles Tennis Championship to benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation to eradicate breast cancer will be held at Beachview Tennis Club on Saturday and Sunday, April 27 and 28. According to tournament director Toni Halski, the two-day event will feature mens and womens doubles tennis competition at all ability levels as well as a consolation tournament for teams that lose their first round match. Originally, they held this event at The Dunes every year, but they werent going to hold it there, so I took the initiative and moved it here, said Halski, Beachviews tennis pro. Its important to carry on that tradition, because so many peoples lives are touched by breast cancer. One of the women who works here at the pro shop Cheryl Clark shes a breast cancer survivor. And shes gone above and beyond the call of duty to make sure this is going to be a big event. All entrants in the tournament will receive gift bags, compliments of Lily & Co. Jewelry Gallery, complimentary lunch on both days and courtside beverages. I think all of us have had somebody in our lives affected by this disease, said Dan Schuyler, co-owner of Lily & Co. When we lived in Maryland, our next door neighbor was a teacher, and she had a mastectomy. We watched her go through that whole process, and its a very tough thing to see somebody go through. A number of our customers are breast cancer survivors, and theyve become very good friends of ours over the years, added Lily & Co. co-owner Karen Bell. In addition to the tennis action, the Beachview Tennis Club will offer a cocktail reception on Saturday, April 27 at 5 p.m. during which raffle prizes will be drawn, with all the proceeds donated to the the Susan G. Komen Foundation. A silent auction will also be held during the tournament. Lily & Co. will donate a Pink Promise necklace created by designer Charles Krypell for the silent auction, which closes at noon on Sunday. Lily & Co. will also have on display throughout the weekend the entire Breast Cancer Cure and Pink Promises collection, and will be accepting sales orders as well as donations. Krypell will donate 15 percent of all future sales to the American Breast Cancer Association. Entry deadline for the 1st annual Sanibel Island Doubles Tennis Championship is Wednesday, April 24 at 5 p.m. To sign up or for more information, call the Beachview Tennis Club at 472-9099.

12B ISLAND SUN APRIL 19, 2013 Island Jeweler Sponsors 15th Habitat HomeCongress Jewelers is sponsoring its 15th Habitat for Humanity home and staff members recently spent a day raising the walls of the east Fort Myers house. Supporting Habitat for Humanity is one way we can give back to our community, said Proprietor Scot Congress. We look forward to getting our team together for a day of work that is so unlike our usual routine. Seeing the progress we make in one day helps us appreciate the difference volunteers can make. Volunteer labor and donations of money and materials help Habitat make homeownership an affordable reality with interest-free mortgages and monthly payments that are less than 30 percent of the homeowners income. Habitat homeowners must qualify financially for the program, save $1,200 toward closing costs, attend a series of educational classes focusing on homeownership, budgeting and home maintenance, and complete 250 hours of sweat equity by volunteering at Habitat. The need for decent, affordable housing in our area has never been greater, said Donny Andrews, chairman of the Habitat board. We are very fortunate to have the ongoing support of individual donors, businesses, civic organizations, churches and volunteers who make the life-changing effect of homeownership available to low-income families. Habitat for Humanity of Lee and Hendry Counties, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary, is one of the largest Habitat affiliates in the country, having helped more than 1,200 families in Lee and Hendry counties become homeowners. For more information on home sponsorship or to volunteer, call 652-0434 or visit www.habitat4humanity.org.

ISLAND SUN APRIL 19, 201314B St. Isabel Mens Society Fellowship Golf Outing Winnerssubmitted by Al KrauseOn Thursday, April 11, 20 men met at the newly renovated golf course at the Sanibel Island Golf Club for a golf tournament. Participants were 18 members of St. Isabel Church Mens Society and, representative of the ecumenical spirit on Sanibel, two players of other faiths. Founded in 2011, the society chose the scramble format in keeping with one of its four goals: to foster Christian fellowship. Its other three goals are spiritual growth, community service and parish leadership. After an exciting round of golf and a luncheon at the club restaurant, the club professional announced the winning team: Leo Larkin, Tom Kroeger, Rene Lohser (captain) and Gerry Risch (voted MVP). The winning team reluctantly consented to a public announcement of its achievement in return for extension of its coveted prize, bragging rights for a full nine days, two days longer than customary.

15B ISLAND SUN APRIL 19, 2013 Barrier Island Title Services, Inc. (239) 472-3688Youll Appreciate the Difference School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My child has an IEP (Individual Education Plan) and its time for us to write next years IEP. I want to have my child instructed in Orton Gillingham reading, since he has a reading disability. How can I make sure that this specific instruction is part of the IEP? Kara V., Fort Myers Kara, While much research has validated the Orton Gillingham methodology as one of the most successful for the teaching of reading, the law does not require your childs IEP to include a specific educational methodology. The position of the U.S. Department of Education is that including methodology in a childs IEP is an IEP team decision, however, if the IEP team decides that your child needs a specific method to receive a free, appropriate public education, the instructional method may be included in the IEP. Wrightslaw.com provides a review of legislative history and case law, which clearly indicates that in developing an individualized education plan there are circumstances in which the particular teaching methodology that will be used is a critical component of what, is individualized about the students education. In that type of situation, the specific practice should be discussed at the IEP meeting and incorporated into the students IEP if the team agrees. Another important factor to remember is that teachers must have the content knowledge and skills to teach children with disabilities. This includes the use of specialized research based instructional practices and programs. So if Orton Gillingham is specifically stated as the method in the IEP, the teacher must have that specific training/certification. From information written by the International Dyslexia Association, the basis of Orton Gillingham is its unique multisensory approach to reading instruction. Using a multisensory approach, teaching is simultaneously visual, auditory and kinesthetic-tactile to enhance memory and learning. Links are consistently made between the visual (what we see), auditory (what we hear) and kinesthetictactile (what we feel) pathways in learning to read and spell. These multisensory approaches used direct, explicit teaching of letter-sound relationships, syllable patterns and meaning word parts. When taught by a multisensory approach, children have the advantage of learning alphabetic patterns and words by utilizing all three pathways. Due to the success that so many students have had using Orton Gillingham, there are now many adaptations and reading programs that have incorporated this multisensory approach to reading as part of their instruction. You may want to focus more on having this type of reading instruction incorporated into your sons IEP as opposed to a very specific program. Many teachers are very familiar with this approach to reading and include this as part of their daily instruction. Ms. Greggs is adjunct faculty at Edison State College where she teaches psychology and education courses. She is also Nationally Certified School Psychologist and consultant for School Consultation Services, a private educational consulting company.

Around The Islands With AnneA Mecca For Lilly Pulitzer Fans; Sale This Weekend At Craft Storeby Anne MitchellHer Sports Closet is Sanibels unofficial headquarters for all things Lilly, as in fashion designer Lilly Pulitzer. The store carries an extensive range of Pulitzer merchandise from dresses and skirts to drink cozies and luggage tags and everything in between. Since Pulitzers death April 7 at the age of 81, interest in her brand of Florida tropical print dresses, skirts, swimsuits and accessories is as high as ever, says Rene Durand, owner of Her Sports Closet in Periwinkle Place. Durand was one of the first merchants to buy the Lilly brand when it came back on the market under new ownership in 1993 after a nine-year hiatus. The Palm Beach socialite was retained as a consultant. Durand recalled meeting Pulitzer on several occasions during buying trips. Online social media is abuzz with comments by Lilly fans, who tend to be passionate about their favorite designer, she said. She said customers young and old are still snapping up shift dresses, shorts (from short to knee length) and sundresses in riotous colors in crisp cotton fabrics with a decidedly Palm Beach vibe. Much of the clothing crosses generations, with grandmothers, mothers and daughters among loyal fans. Recently, a grandfather purchased three Lilly shifts the same style in three different colors as Easter gifts for his granddaughters, said Durand. Pulitzer came up with her bright and colorful fabrics while operating a juice stand on Worth Avenue in the 1950s. The fabrics camouflaged the juice stains on her clothes and the dresses soon outsold the juice. The brand has moved with the times and this season youll find deck chair stripes and fluorescent shades in the mix, and adorable toddlers and girls dresses and swimsuits as well. Naturally, there are sandals and cardigans in solid pink, lime and other colors to complement the prints. There are also lots of what Durand calls giftables, drink cozies, tumblers, iphone cases (for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5), sunglasses straps, purses and long scarves. Theres even a selection of mens ties and bowties. Her Sports Closet is in Periwinkle Place, phone 4724206. Crafters, quilters and needleworkers, listen up!

19B ISLAND SUN APRIL 19, 2013 I get a kick out of those commercials, What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas! Yeah. Right. That goes against the age old wisdom that when more than one person knows about something its no longer a secret. Which brings me to todays estate planning topic reporting gifts that you make on gift tax returns. Many individuals make taxable transfers and never report them. How will the IRS ever find out about it? many say to me when I inquire as to prior gifts. Before I broach that subject, allow me to provide some background into gifts and taxes. The gift and estate tax are really one tax. When we make lifetime transfers, they may be subject to the gift tax. What is left of our gift tax exemption at the time of our deaths becomes an estate tax exemption. It is only after we use up our total exemptions, either during our lifetime or at our death, is tax ever imposed. And the tax is assessed on the fair market value of the transfer at the time that it occurs, whether during our lifetimes in the form of a gift, or at our death when our will or trust transfers the assets to our beneficiaries. You should know that during our lifetime, most of the gifts that we make are not reportable, and hence, not taxable. So long as you dont gift more than the annual exclusion amount (currently $14,000) in any calendar year to anyone, then you generally wont have to file a federal gift tax return. But the annual exclusion amount includes all gifts that you make during the year, from that watch that you bought to the stock that you transferred. If the cumulative gifts to any one recipient exceed the annual exclusion amount, then you are supposed to report it. In most circumstances, even when you report the gift you wont pay any gift tax. Under current law, each of us has a lifetime exemption of $5.25 million. When you make a taxable gift all that means is that you report it on a gift tax return, and the value of those gifts reduce your lifetime exemption amount. Once you have consumed your entire lifetime exemption amount, then you start paying gift tax. Under present law, one would have to make in excess of $5.25 million of lifetime taxable transfers before paying the first dollar of gift tax. Getting back to the how will they ever know question, it is vitally important that you report the taxable gifts that you make. With todays recordkeeping and technology, the IRS has many tools at its disposal to pick up on transfers that were not reported. The IRS usually wont search for those transfers until after your death. But they can go back many years looking at deed and property records, checking and credit card accounts. And since the issue usually does not come up until you die, you are no longer around to explain the transfer. The IRS also assesses what it believes to be the fair market value of the gift when they find them on audit. Disputing their assessment can become very costly and time consuming. Once the IRS finds an individual or an estate that has not reported prior transfers, things can get ugly in a hurry. Assume that when auditing an estate tax return, the IRS discovered an unreported property transfer from the deceased to his son back in 1998. The assessed value of the property was $500,000 at the time of the transfer on the property tax records. The IRS usually considers the tax assessments to be below fair market value. Assume further that using comparables the IRS considers the fair market value at the time of the transfer to have been $750,000 and not the lower assessed value. If the deceased had a taxable estate, the IRS would likely assess additional estate tax, interest and penalties. This could add up to $375,000 or more. Once they uncover unreported transfers, then the IRS is likely to assume that there are others. And they start digging. Theyll ask for checkbook ledgers, brokerage account histories and submit formal interrogatories for the executor to answer under oath. Whether there were or there werent other transfers, the executors of the estate should then expect to incur some hefty attorneys and accountants fees answering the barrage of inquiries heading their way. The bottom line is to report the transfers that you make. This keeps your estate clean and also allows your advisors the opportunity to proactively plan during your lifetime to reduce or eliminate taxes. Because as far as the IRS is concerned, transfers that happen between you and your loved ones dont stay a secret forever. Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at www.sbshlaw.com.

20B ISLAND SUN APRIL 19, 2013 End Of Season Checklistby Bryan HayesWith Easter in our rearview mirror and the temperatures starting to rise, its getting to be that time of year again. The time when some of your neighbors and friends head to northern climates. For some, its time to close up the house and head to your summer retreat. Here is a checklist of things that need to be accomplished prior to your departure. Hope this helps: A couple of weeks before your departure date Beat the rush and go to the post office and set the date to forward your mail. Or better yet, go to www.usps.com and fill out there short form online; it is very easy. Touch base with friends and neighbors to let them know about your departure plans, if for no other reason than a farewell get together. Contact Sanibel Air and see when your last service on your service plan was. If you are due soon, we can schedule that appointment before you leave. And help insure a trouble-free vacancy. Let your other service providers know of your departure plans, i.e. house watch, lawn service, pool service, cable TV and phone provider. A quick tip: Comcast has a seasonal plan option that may save you money. Compile lists of things to do and tasks to perform. If you drive north, schedule to have your car serviced. A week prior to departure Start packing. Get together important papers that will go with you, i.e. property insurance. Let northern friends know of your arrival plans. Plan your route. Make hotel reservations along your route. Make sure hurricane protection is in place or plans are set to have them installed after you leave. Departure day Turn off water to house, turn off breaker that feeds your water heater. Set your thermostat and humidistat for away operation. Check all doors and windows. Check this checklist and make sure all is done. Have a safe and enjoyable ride home. We will see you when you return. Bryan Hayes is a Sanibel air conditioning contractor.

21B ISLAND SUN APRIL 19, 2013 deaRPharmacistThe Best Diet For People With Autoimmune Diseaseby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: Your post on rheumatoid arthritis and autoimmune disease intrigued me. I didnt realize eating beans, peanuts, peas, lentils, soy or tofu was an issue. I eat these foods frequently and I still hurt. Can you tell me more? DB, Houston, Texas We have many medications for autoimmune diseases, but what you eat could negate the effects of your drug. I feel the avoidance of lectin-containing foods is wise for people who have a pain syndrome like lupus, MS, rheumatoid or Lou Gehrigs Disease. Im not saying these food groups are bad they have fiber and some nutrients its just that some people experience flares from the consumption. Research shows that these foods may harm the delicate intestinal lining. If they poked microscopic holes in there, then lectins and partially undigested food globules would leak into your bloodstream. Its called leaky gut, but medically-speak refers to this process as increased intestinal permeability or intestinal malabsorption. Once the door opens in your small intestine, and your intestinal villi are compromised, all kinds of symptoms occur. It happens like this: Lectins and undigested globules of food proteins are spotted in your bloodstream because they leaked out of your gut. They are also spotted in an organ (because they will park themselves eventually). Then, your immune system gets fired up. Your immune cells crank out proinflammatory cytokines, which cause pain and swelling and attack the organ where they see the foreign protein parked. For example, if they park themselves in your thyroid, you might have Hashimotos or Graves, parked in your myelin, it spells more neuropathy for multiple sclerosis. Your joints, and it flares rheumatoid arthritis. Think of proinflammatory cytokines as pain-causing chemicals that you dont want hanging around in excess. In case you share my column with clinicians, it goes like this: There are many food antigens, among them lectin and gluten (gliadin) which increase intestinal permeability, leading to intestinal malabsorption. You see an up-regulation of the NF-Kappa B pathway which launches production of pro-inflammatory cytokines; food antigens can counter the positive effects of medication because they cause production of inflammatory cytokines, histamine or interferon gamma. The theory suggests that foods (like wheat, cereal, beans, tofu and lentils) could spell trouble for autoimmune sufferers. This is why the paleo diet, and the work by Dr. Loren Cordain and Dr. David Wolfe is gaining so much traction, it is grain and lectin free and I think it could resolve many pain syndromes. I also recommend Doug Kauffmans Phase One diet. Foods with the highest lectin activity include grains (especially wheat), legumes (especially soy), nuts, dairy and nightshades like eggplant, peppers, potatoes, tomatoes and others. Id give this diet four months at least, forever if you feel better. Many ask if soaking beans removes the lectins, I think it can help but I dont think it is 100 percent effective. Protect your gut lining with probiotics, digestive enzymes and avoidance of refined/processed foods. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAMLDid you know that our lymph system, which has two times as many lymph vessels as blood vessels, has no pump? Historically, vigorous physical activity released the toxins from the lymph system. However today with our sedentary lifestyle, there is little opportunity to move the toxins from our bodies without intervention. There are 90-plus Neurolymphatic reflex points on the surface of the body, which are not always located directly over lymph nodes, vessels or lymph tissue. However, research has shown that by rubbing the reflex points (see chart), toxins will be released from the system, clearing stagnate energies (including emotional energy) and leaving you feeling energized. If you cut yourself, clear liquid appears this is lymph. Its role is to support the immune system by creating antibodies, producing specialized white blood cells, transporting nourishment to the cells and the eliminating and transporting waste products from the cells. If the lymph movement is compromised due to the accumulation of toxins that are not removed, then your system becomes less and less able to efficiently function to remove toxins; i.e. the system is in overload. Remembering that one of the essential principles of Energy Medicine is to move stagnate energy and make space, it makes sense to rub these points with pressure. Use as much pressure as you can tolerate to push the toxins from these points. Most of the points will be sore, so be mindful of your needs and health. Go slowly when starting (especially if you have been ill), but build to the point that enables you to rub these points daily with vigor. For more detail, see page 90 of Eden Energy Medicine. The Neurolymphatic Rub is part of the 5 Minute Routine, designed to clear stagnate energy from the body and send toxins to the bodys waste disposal system: Step 1. Rub the points shown in the figure with firm pressure moving the skin up and down or with a circular motion. Step 2. Rub each point about five seconds. Try to get through all points over a few days. Step 3. Tender points should be rubbed a bit extra. Tenderness may continue for some time, but eventually will dissipate as you clear congestion. Step 4. If you have many toxins in the system, nausea may be experienced as toxins are released into the bloodstream. Although not harmful, proceed slowly the next time you rub. Have fun with your energy. Send me your questions. Next weeks topic is Settle Your Partner With A Spinal Flush! If you have a questions for Karen, email her at ksemmelmanenergy@ gmail.com. Learn more at www.semmelmanenergy.com. EEM does not diagnose or cure illness, but working with subtle energies of the body has been shown to help many conditions. drawing from Innersouce Inc.

Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyTime Management Come out of the circle of time and into the circle of love. Jalaudin Rumi When you analyze your daily schedule, create a to-do list and organize items from most important to least important. Doing the most important things reduces stress, allowing you to manage your time more effectively. The steps below will help keep you on track: Decide what is most important to you and the amount of time you want to spend on it. Use a day-timer to help you stay organized. Plan ahead so you dont get caught up in feeling pressured with too many things to do. You may find that at times some things have to be put off. Practice deep breathing techniques to remain calm. Get a head start on your work day by picking out what you are going to wear the night before. If you take your lunch, make it ahead. Get a good nights sleep and leave early for work. Running late creates stress. Have a family meeting weekly to check-in and offer assistance to anyone who needs it. Meditate to feel more peaceful and have more clarity of mind. Eat breakfast. You need energy to start your day. Keep it simple so preparation doesnt create stress. Take time at night to reflect on your day. Realize that work can be joyful and relaxing when you use your time effectively. Approach each day, including your work days, with mindful awareness of staying present to the moment. When you are in the present moment, time seems to expand because you are not worrying about the future or the past.

23B ISLAND SUN APRIL 19, 2013 Dr. DavePersonality Style? Disorderby Dr. Dave HepburnCarl, I comment to the psychiatrist sitting beside me at a medical conference I recently attended (for some odd reason, these guys seem to relish sitting by me), is it not true that just about everyone could be slotted into one personality disorder category or another? Sort of. We could all be described as having one style of personality or another, with only the degree of the personality trait determining if it becomes a disorder. You, for example, I would classify as a compulsive personality with... Why you incompetent Freudian snake oil nincompoo... No, this is true of most doctors. But a personality style only becomes a disorder when it is taken to the extreme. Then it begins to interfere with day-today functioning. But by its very definition, those with personality disorders dont believe they have a problem. They think they are OK, its everyone around them that notices the problem. Oh, its out there alright. Ive noticed that my office staff, my hockey team and all of their families seem somewhat unstable. I see. While two to three percent of the population consistently demonstrate a full blown personality disorder. The rest of us need to be wary that our particular personality style doesnt deteriorate down the continuum into a personality disorder. Certain triggers such as an illness (particularly neurological illnesses), stress and even some medications may convert our style or trait into a disorder. For example, someone you might consider sensitive may become ill and slide down that continuum to develop an avoidant personality disorder. A conscientious person may become an obsessive-compulsive during university exams. While personality traits are often genetically programmed, a dysfunctional personality disorder may develop permanently in a child who is the product of chronic moderate neglect or abuse. Once ingrained, personality disorders are notoriously difficult to treat. It is not easy to treat someone who thinks everyone else is the problem. These people are able to thwart any attempt at therapy. They are difficult people with disturbed, extreme and rigid views of themselves and the world about them. Want to get the family stirred up tonight? Try gathering the clan around and determine which personality trait/ style each fits into. That way, when Uncle Engelbert goes squirrelly one day while on Dilaudid after bowel surgery, you can predict which personality disorder you will be dealing with. To further foment family feuding, grade each player from 1 to 10 based on how close their trait is to becoming a disorder. But if they are at all like my family, remember theyll all be a little odd. Rise above it. Personality Style? Disorder Vigilant? Paranoid (Unwarranted suspicion, envy, distrust in motives of others) Devoted? Dependant (Submissive and clinging behaviour, fear of separation) Mercurial? Borderline (Very unstable in interpersonal relationships, impulsive) Self-confident? Narcissistic (Lack of empathy for others, need for admiration) Dramatic? Histrionic (Over-reactive, theatrical behaviour and seductiveness, attention seeking, excessively emotional) Aggressive? Explosive (Impulse control, temper problems) Adventurous? Antisocial (Disregard for rights of others, sociopathic) Conscientious? Obsessive compulsive (Excessive concern with conformity, inability to relax easily) Solitary? Schizoid (Timidness, introversion, social detachment) Leisurely? Passive aggressive (Negativistism, passive resistance to demands and resposibilities) Sensitive? Avoidant (Hypersensitive, social inhibition) Self-sacrificing? Self-defeating (If I suffer enough and someone sees it, Ill be loved) Idiosyncratic? Schizotypal (Eccentricity of behaviour, discomfort with and reduced capacity for close relationships) Dr. Daves book The Doctor is In(sane) is now available for those with a sense of humor and half a sense of health.

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 had the same secretary for 44 years. He bossed her around at work, and he bosses me at home, and treats us both like children. During his successful career, I was left to amuse myself, so long as it didnt interfere with his agenda. Over the years, I renewed my friendship with an old college friend, and she and I have had lots of fun together, and we became very close. When my husband retired, so did his secretary. He insisted I completely drop my friend and that his secretary join us for everything holidays, Sunday dinners, even our vacations. He wants us to be the happy threesome, but I am not so happy. I know his secretary is lonely without work or a family of her own, but I dont like this arrangement. My friend has now gone her way, and I am at a loss to know what to do. Hazel Dear Hazel, Your husband is a controller and an extremely selfish person. His needs are his only consideration, and he wants to be in charge of your life totally. Your husband must have shown this type of behavior before, and you probably went along to get along. At his age, he will not change. He is so set in his ways, you will probably have to go along to get along. Marriage counseling may allow you to vent your frustration, but I doubt he will ever go and probably would criticize any suggestion made for behavior modification. Only you can decide what is in your future. Lizzie Dear Hazel, Your situation does sound very unusual. It never ceases to amaze me the situations people get themselves into. To figure out what to do, you need to figure out what you want. Do you want your own friends? Do you want time with your husband? What are your boundaries? After you have a good idea of what you want, then you can put together a plan. If your husbands secretary devoted her life to his career, which in turn gave you a good life, some time spent together as friends does not seem so bad. I would draw the line at vacations, however.

Bring the lightly salted water to a rolling boil over medium-high heat. Fill a mediumsized mixing bowl halfway with ice and water. Add the trimmed and cut green beans to the boiling water and let cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Using a hand strainer, remove the green beans from the boiling water and place them into the ice water to stop them from cooking. The green beans should be crisp-tender and a vibrant shade of green. After the green beans have cooled down, remove them from the ice water and set aside. Carefully add the cut potatoes to the same boiling water the greens beans were cooked in. We are saving water by using the same pot of water for two different vegetables. Cook the potatoes in the boiling water for around 15 minutes depending on size. The potatoes should be slightly firm, yet tender to the bite. Using a colander placed in the sink, drain the potatoes and run cold water over them so they cool off and stop cooking. In a large mixing bowl, combine mayonnaise, lemon juice and olive oil. Stir the mayonnaise mixture to combine. Add all of the rest of the ingredients to the bowl and lightly stir to combine all flavors. Taste potato salad and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Keep potato salad cold in the refrigerator and stir before serving. Serve potato salad as a side dish and use Florida arugula as a garnish. Florida Potato and Green Bean Salad
