Thanks to Tarpon Bay Explorers, the official concessionaire of Ding Darling NWR, visitors to the refuge can hop aboard a tram, join an experienced guide and naturalist, and journey just across the causeway for a 90-minute adventure in the shallow waters of San Carlos Bay. The inaugural Estuary Exploratory Tram Tour on May 23, hosted by Tarpon Bay Explorers naturalists Donna Yetsko and Lewis Irvine, brought a group of 14 wildlife explorers to the beach along McGregor Boulevard, who came armed with only a few dip nets, a large seine net and a vivid curiosity about local wildlife. Sanibel does support a diverse group of wildlife, Yetsko said over the trams PA system as it travelled down Periwinkle Way. We have raccoons, alligators, armadillos, bobcats, otters and up until last summer we even had a bear here. You never know what youre gonna to run into.

Out of Balance by Carrie Burns Brown for ISEA Sundial Gets OK For Seating, New Kitchenby Anne MitchellThe Sanibel Planning Commission on Tuesday paved the way for the new owners of Sundial Beach and Golf Resort to add 32 bonus outdoor seats to the property and to have a second, downstairs kitchen to service those seats and the poolside tiki bar. Sundial, one of Sanibels oldest resorts, was dilapidated and now, under new ownership, is undergoing a major overhaul including adding a spa, wedding facilities and enhancing the lobby, bar and meeting rooms. The restaurant is also being updated. John Naumann, on behalf of Sanibel Sundial Partners, LLC, said, We look at ourselves as the poster child for redevelopment on Sanibel. We are going to make sure it is done in the right way. We are not only the poster child, we are the guinea pig and we are willing to take that gamble and get everybody to follow suit. He was referring to action the city took two years ago to try to jump start a refurbishment of Sanibels aging hotels and resorts by allowing even non-conforming ones like Sundial built under pre-incorporation codes to redevelop without losing units or amenities. This is the first big project under the resort redevelopment ordinance.continued on page 6We look at ourselves as the poster child for redevelopment on Sanibel.

ISLAND SUN MAY 31, 20132 Trailways Camp Seeking Support Of Islandersby Jeff LysiakPerfect weather and happy campers. Thats a winning combination in Jerry Millers eyes. Miller, a resident of Sanibel and co-founder of the Trailways Camp program, reported that the organizations second annual spring camp held at the Riverside Retreat Center in Labelle from May 6 to 9 was a tremendous success. It really was a blessing, said Miller, who along with his wife, Sharon, founded The Robert V. & Benjamin G. Miller Fund. Everything at the camp went very smoothly and the weather was perfect. Open to adults with special needs in Southwest Florida, Trailways Camp removes barriers and social isolation by giving participants a chance to experience quality social recreational experiences including fishing, swimming, hiking, talent shows, field trips, canoeing, arts and crafts, dances and campfire sing-alongs in a safe environment while giving respite to their families and caregivers. During the recently-completed spring camp, Miller noted that campers enjoyed four days of recreational and social activities, which included fishing, flying kites, building bird houses, a visit from a cartoonist who drew caricatures, a visit from Special Equestrians with their horses and a visit from employees of Waffle House who helped campers make their own waffles. Our talent show this year also had 100 percent participation, which we never had before, Miller added proudly. More than a dozen volunteers from Sanibel Community Church donated their time and talents to Trailways Camp. According to Miller, parishioners of the church have been very supportive of the camp from day one, both financially and through volunteerism. He also hopes other churches on the islands as well as members of Sanibel and Captivas service organizations will feel welcome to join in and become volunteers at the next camp, to be held from October 7 to 11, also in Labelle. People can help out with taking our campers fishing, or with an arts and crafts project, or with serving food, said Miller. For many of our campers, just having somebody sit down and talk with them would make a big difference. Trailways Camp also has a wish list of items: Trailways Campers have fun learning how to build bird houses at the May 6 to 9 camp in Labelle Campers Rachal and Andrea were all smiles after meeting the Special Equestrians horses Stop by for your signed copy of Opalescent The second book in the Harmony Run Series Still enslaved in a mixed-race zone within the United Zones of the Authority, Rain Hawkins is part of a secret resistance preparing to take on the tyrannical President Nicks before plans to kill the mixed zones across UZTA are executed.

With a known Authority spy on her heels, and her boyfriend, Jabari, suddenly acting strange, Rain doesn't know who to trust and if the voices calling to her are friend or foe. As conditions across all of the zones get worse and the stakes rise, Rain embarks on a quest for answers that will put the people she cares about most in more danger or take them one step closer to the truth and their eventual freedom. 1571 Periwinkle Way Sanibel, FL 33957 239-472-5223 www.sanibelbookshop.com Chef Nikkis Gourmet Vegan Take Out!

ISLAND SUN MAY 31, 20134 Sanibel Historical Village Joins In ProclamationThis year marks a significant historical milestone for the state of Florida as it commemorates the 500th Anniversary of Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Lens landing on the coast of Florida. The Lee County Board of County Commissioners, at its May 21 meeting, commemorated that anniversary with a proclamation supported by dozens of organizations, including the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village, represented by board member Karl Rodman. It was a pleasure to represent the museum as one of the many nonprofit organizations in the county, Rodman said. About 30 of us were called up to stand in front of the raised benches where the County Commissioners sit as the proclamation was read aloud, giving credit to all of the peoples who made up Floridas history. Ponce de Len was the first European explorer documented to set foot on the continental United States. He landed on Floridas east coast on April 2, 1513 and bestowed the name La Florida on this lush new land in honor of the Spanish Feast of Flowers celebrating Easter season. His expedition entered the Calusa Indian domain near Fort Myers on May 23, 1513, spending more than three weeks in the area and documenting stababa, the Calusa capital town at Mound Key. Ancestors of the Calusa Indians inhabited coastal Southwest Florida for several thousands of years and contributed to the more than 12,000-year history of American Indians in Florida. Juan Ponce de Lens voyage of discovery began a new era in which native peoples, Europeans and other nationalities under many different flags formed the foundation that created the state of Florida. A countless number of different cultures have contributed to Floridas heritage and continue to live, work and thrive together today. The Florida Department of State designated 2013 as Viva Florida 500 to commemorate the states cultural legacy and reflect on the achievements of all who have contributed to Floridas dynamic growth, rich diversity and economic prosperity. To commemorate this milestone Lee County citizens and visitors are encouraged to participate in the many enriching programs and events planned in honor of Viva Florida 500 throughout 2013. The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. until August 3, when it closes for the offseason. It is located at 950 Dunlop Road, next to BIG ARTS. Admission is $5 for those 18 and older; children and members are free. For more information, call the museum during business hours at 472-4648 or visit www.sanibelmuseum. org.

ISLAND SUN MAY 31, 20136 INSIDE CITY HALL From page 1Sundial Gets OKThe commissioners had little hesitation in granting a development permit for the bonus seats, as allowed for in another city ordinance and recommended for approval by city staff. But when it came to the extra kitchen, for which city planners recommended denial, there was much discussion about whether it would mean an intensity of use. In the end, the vote was 7-0 in favor of allowing a conditional use permit for the kitchen. The commissioners agreed with Naumann that it would improve service to outdoor patrons and avoid safety issues of wait staff having to carry trays of food downstairs. The kitchen will replace a former video game room and will not increase the footprint of the resort. However, there was concern from commissioners about the possibility of beachgoers, not resort guests, getting take-out. Naumann said he would post signs stating no takeout and no food to be taken beyond the property line. Planning staff recommended approval of the bonus outdoor seats subject to certain conditions. City codes call for restaurant seats to be tied to the number of parking spaces and planning staff maintained the resort does not meet the miniumum number, which caused the applicants to seek a long-form permit with public hearings. Naumann noted that even during a recent chamber of commerce luncheon when there was construction equipment and storage cubes in the parking lot, there were plenty of spaces for everyone. Naumann said the outdoor seats have been in existence since the previous owners, Blackstone, without adverse impact, but said, What we want to do is legally permit seats that have been used for the last 15 years. They will be in addition to 285 seats already allowed inside. Planning Director Jim Jordan said Sundial is unique in that the resort building is subdivided from the condominiums, Sundial East and Sundial West, and is open to the general public and has to meet certain requirements. There was one objection to the outdoor seats, from William Waterman, a year-round resident of Sundial East, who said it would lead to more traffic and noise. Referring to a comment by Naumann, he said, I dont know where they get the idea that 85 percent of the people who use the restaurant are from Sundial. Commission Chairman Mike Valiquette said, If you live in a resort district you are going to have resort activities. Naumann agreed to a review of the situation after two years, one year if city staff found any issues. He said the upgrades are needed. We live in a new age where customers carry a lot of weight with TripAdvisor (and other online review sites). You need positive comments if you want people to come back, he stated. Seagrape Lane Duplex Site To Have New Home by Anne MitchellA duplex damaged by Hurricane Charley in August 2004, that was abandoned and eventually condemned, will be replaced by a single family home even though the right to rebuild has expired. City planner Roy Gibson told the planning commission on Tuesday that the previous owner was granted multiple extensions to the two-year time limit to replace the dwelling. He demolished the duplex and sold the vacant lot at 1114/1116 Seagrape Lane to Daniel and Anne Cristo, who want to build a home and pool there. The trouble is the duplex was nonconforming and, under Sanibels buildback codes, the lot was then considered unbuildable. So, the Cristos applied for relief and got it this week. The conditions include that construction on the new home must begin within a year and be completed within two years. Gibson said there had been no complaints from neighbors regarding the application. In fact, some may be pleased with the outcome. City Attorney Ken Cuyler said, This is the best answer to what has been a messy situation for the last eight years. He noted that it is a unique situation and will not set a precedent. Commissioner Phillip Marks, who lives nearby, said the proposed single family home is smaller than the duplex and conforms to setbacks and flood elevations. It is a very small, reasonable home on this street, he added. The old duplex was infested with vermin and live electric, which posed a danger. Commissioner Chuck Ketteman also said it was a good outcome, adding, It will allow a single family home to be added to the tax rolls and assures the neighborhood it will not be overgrown.

That is in addition to a $1,000 scholarship to Edison State College which he donated last month. I am very impressed with all of the programs at FISH that help the people of Sanibel. Neighbors Helping Neighbors is their motto... and they do. Last year, they distributed over 74,500 pounds of food to 233 local families, supplied 1,293 backpacks of food to area children and provided over $200,000 of emergency financial assistance to local families... plus multiple other programs. Coile raises money for local charities at his Tuesday evening performances at George and Wendys Seafood Grill on Sanibel. He donates his music CDs which are given away free to anyone making a $5 or more donation. Its a win for everyone, said Coile. I enjoy playing and singing great classic rock and roll and country music, and our customers sing along and dance. We also have local musical talent join in; Sandy Greco, Dee Kelly and Walter Schurman. Its just party time every time I play. The food is very good and we enjoy it in the private banquet room.

11 ISLAND SUN MAY 31, 2013 Fourth Graders Enjoy Visit To Historical VillageFourth graders from The Sanibel School rode their bicycles to the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village recently to tour the historical buildings and learn more about the island they call home. Board member and tour guide Karl Rodman, along with former board president and special tour guide Alex Werner, divided the children into two groups and led them on a tour of the seven historical buildings and the heritage garden in their midst. The first group of 22 students was from teacher Julie Wappus class, who commented, We just went to St. Augustine last week, so how could we not include our own historical museum? This time, Werner took the boys and Rodman took the girls. Seated in the 1896 one-room schoolhouse, the boys learned that in the old days, hitting a ball over the bushes, rather than being a home run as it probably would be today, was an out because of the dangers of animals. The second class of fourth graders came to the village the following week. Teacher Debbie Rileys class numbered 32 children and enjoyed the same tour. The children were very engaged and interested, Rodman said. It was a pleasure to give them a glimpse of Sanibels past, and I think they learned a lot. The day after the childrens visit, I arrived at work to find beautiful thank you notes from the students placed on one of the chairs on the porch of the Rutland House, weighted down by two coconuts, said museum manager Emilie Alfino. They were precious, and Ive put them in a binder where they will remain in the old schoolhouse. The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village plans to continue tours for fourth graders at The Sanibel School. Just like these students, anyone can learn more at the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village, open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. through August 3. The museum then closes until November 6 when it reopens with full hours, Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Visit the Museum Gift Shop, which carries a variety of Civil War items for children, including coloring books and paper dolls, replicas of Confederate silver and Union gold, certificates of parole and more. In addition, the gift shop carries sailors valentines, pine needle baskets and handmade aprons in adult and childrens sizes plus aprons to fit American Girl dolls. All the merchandise in the museum store is made in America. The village is located at 950 Dunlop Road (next to BIG ARTS). Admission is $5 for adults over 18; members are free. For more information, call 472-4648 or visit www.sanibelmuseum.org. Tour guide Alex Werner begins the tour by walking by the garden and explaining the history of farming on Sanibel The Sanibel School fourth graders rode their bikes to the Historical Village, saving the cost and hassle of arranging transportation and having fun Board member and guide Karl Rodman addresses a comfortable audience in Miss Charlottas Tea Room, explaining how Sanibel became a city and what that meant for its future The students left wonderful thank you notes underneath a coconut in front of the Rutland House. They now hold a place of honor in the Old 1896 Schoolhouse

Case, his wife Bonnie and younger brother Marshall were on a fishing charter with Capt. Jim Burnsed out of Tween Waters Marina. Case hooked up the tarpon in Pine Island Sound. He and Capt. Burnsed tried to bring it up for an exact weight and measure but to no avail. It was a mammoth fish. Fish Caught Henry Case with his huge catchKen Sheldon from New York caught a 31-inch snook at about 8 a.m. on May 25. Fishing from shore on the east end, Sheldon was standing in about two feet of water with a Kastmaster lure on 20-pound braid with a 30-pound fluorocarbon leader. 31inches long. The angler took a quick picture with the snook, which was successfully released to fight again. Ken Sheldon with his catch Michael Pugh with his catchMichael Pugh caught and released this 26-inch snook while fishing at Blind Pass. Michael and his wife, Sharon, are frequent visitors to Sanibel. Over the weekend, Karen and Indy Pati went fishing... although they didnt anticipate catching much because of the full moon the night before. However, the couple caught a lot of trout and brought home seven keepers. What a delightful morning on the Sanibel waters! said Indy. The fish ranged from 16 to 20 inches, plus a beautiful 24-inch specimen. So, get out there, fish in shallow water on an incoming tide with shrimp and a bobber. Enjoy the beauty of our island and the great outdoors. Indy Pati with one of the fish caught over the weekend with his wife, Karen From page 6DocumentaryThe documentary will feature multiple generations of people who grew up on Sanibel. The film will feature some longtime Sanibel residents who either grew up here, or who moved here in their early adult years, and who raised families here. An additional focus will be on adults who grew up on the island, and a nostalgic look back at their experiences. Sanibel kids will be featured, with glimpses into their island lives. One of these segments will include a reminiscence of three girls now in college who buried a time capsule on the beach. Another will feature island teenagers who travel to each others homes by land and sea.

ISLAND SUN MAY 31, 201314 Plant SmartYew Plum Pineby Gerri ReavesYew plum pines (Podocarpus macrophyllus) dense fine-textured foliage makes it a popular woody hedge in residential, commercial and urban landscapes in South Florida, especially in narrow spaces. Also called yew-pine, Southern yew and Japanese yew, this evergreen tree is native to Japan and southern China. Its rarely allowed to its reach full growth potential, which can be as high as 50 feet. Because this tough plant can be repeatedly hedge-trimmed into any shape cylinder, cone, box, or sphere and survive, landscapers like it. Its silhouette, spaces between branches, and needle-like leaves give it a spruce-like appearance in maturity. The yellow spring flowers are inconspicuous, the fruit fleshy, oval and bluish. That fruit produced by the female tree explains the term plum in the common name. The fruit is a food source for birds. The tree adjusts to various light conditions, even shade, but does best in full sun. Highly droughttolerant, this plant will not do well in wet soil. Yew plum pine works well as a buffer, screen or container plant. That tolerance for over-trimming makes it a good topiary plant. However, if you want a low-maintenance evergreen that resembles a Christmas tree, consider a native species such as red cedar (Juniperus virginiana) instead. Plant Smart explores sustainable gardening practices that will help you create an environmentally responsible, low-maintenance South Florida landscape. The evergreen yew plum pine has finely textured needle-like leaves photos by Gerri Reaves Left unshaped, the species will grow into a large tree Yew plum pine is common in urban landscapes 1551 Periwinkle Way I 472-7242 Lunch 113 I Happy Hour 36 I Dinner 59:30Dinner reservations suggested DINING SHOPPING COCKTAILS AWARD-WINNING BISTRO CUISINE JEWELRY, CLOTHING, BOOKS & GIFTS FINE WINES, BEERS & HAPPY HOUR MENU Live!

W ith the summer approaching, the clinic has a large number of healthy babies ready to return to the wild, but not enough locations on which they can be legally released. Most of the babies raised at the clinic from babyhood do not need to be returned to the exact location in which they were found, since they were too young to have established a territory. Off island is where space is most needed, as 85 percent of CROWs patients come from across the Sanibel Causeway. The clinic currently has a variety of native birds, Virginia opossums and raccoons that are ready to return to the wild. It takes weeks or months for the babies to mature enough to survive in the wild. With baby season in full swing, the clinics staff, students and volunteers are working around the clock to feed them. Only a certain amount of animals can be released on one property in order to avoid infestation and over-population. If anyone has private property with a lot of land and would be interested in having wild mammals, birds or turtles released on it, call CROW. The clinic will review the set of guidelines with property owners to determine if their place is suitable. Some of the questions include: Is the property wooded? Is there a pond? Is it safe from free-roaming dogs? Be a good steward of the environment and help CROW in its efforts to find a safe haven for our precious native wildlife. 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.

ISLAND SUN MAY 31, 201318 Tarpon Timeby Capt. Matt MitchellSouthwest Florida tarpon season is now in full swing. May and June are the main months anglers from all over the world come here with one goal in mind; to do battle with a hard fighting tarpon. If you are a fisherman and have never caught a tarpon, it is one of species of fish that should be on your bucket list. The strength and leaping ability of these fish are legendary. Tarpon fishing this week was very consistent. Despite a few windy days, schools of rolling and free jumping tarpon could be found all throughout the area both on the beaches and in the bay. Although calm mornings give anglers the best opportunity to locate and sight fish, soaking baits even during less than perfect conditions resulted in hook-ups this week. When tarpon fishing is mentioned, most people think Boca Grande Pass. This pass does hold lots of tarpon but in my opinion is really not much fun to fish because of all the boat traffic and crowds. There are plenty of other places to catch tarpon without being involved in this stressful angling mess. With so many tarpon in our area, its not hard to get away from the chaos and have tarpon all to yourself. There are lots of different effective methods to fish for tarpon including live bait, cut bait and artificials. Anglers can generally by categorized by the method they use. When you see anchored up boats in the bay and out from Knapps Point, these guys are generally cut bait fisherman. They set up a spread of multiple rods 360 degrees around the boat. Boats drifting and under trolling motor power are most likely the live bait fisherman. They are pitching threadfins, crabs and pinfish as they move through rolling fish. Many local guides fish with what I like to call the hybrid method, with a few live baits and cut baits put out while anchored. This method involves first locating tarpon and setting up on the anchor. Two heavy spinning rods are baited with large cut baits rigged on circle hooks, they are pitched out and placed in the rod holders. Then my anglers fish live baits under floats. These rigs are baited with crabs, pinfish or threadfins. I find this method most productive and with a wide selection of bait for the tarpon to eat, it lets you narrow down which bait the tarpon prefer that day. Tarpon are without a doubt my favorite fish to catch and guide anglers on. No matter how many of these fish I hook or have clients hook, its still an adrenaline rush that simply cannot be explained. If you have never tried it, you owe it to yourself to give it a shot.Capt. Matt Mitchell has been fishing local waters since he moved to Sanibel in 1980. He now lives in St. James City and works as a back country fishing guide. If you have comments or questions email captmattmitchell@aol.com. Send Us Your Fish TalesThe Island Sun would like to hear from anglers about their catches.

Andy Lankton from Eureka, Illinois with his first tarpon caught while fishing with Capt. Matt Mitchell this week Recreational Red Snapper Season Begins June 1The 2013 Gulf of Mexico recreational red snapper season begins on Saturday, June 1 in state and federal waters. This years state season is 44 days long and will be open through July 14 with the first day of the closure being July 15. The federal season off Florida will be 26 days long. The state season was approved by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) at its April 17 meeting in Tallahassee. State waters are from shore to nine nautical miles in Gulf waters; federal waters extend beyond that line to 200 nautical miles. State and federal regulations require all commercial fishers and recreational anglers fishing for any reef fish species in the Gulf of Mexico to use circle hooks, venting tools and dehooking devices. In Gulf state and federal waters, the minimum size limit is 16 inches total length and the bag limit is two fish per person, per day, within a 10-fish snapper aggregate limit. While the yearly quota for how many pounds of red snapper can be harvested has increased in recent years, the federal season length has gotten shorter over the past few years because of more fishing effort and larger fish, according to federal fishery managers.

19 ISLAND SUN MAY 31, 2013Birds Eye ViewThe Snowbirds Have Gone Home!by Mark Bird WestallWell, Memorial Day has come and gone and with it, most of our tourist visitors. And even though I think the massive increase in popularity Sanibel has experienced over the last year or so has helped rejuvenate the islands business community, it is nice for the locals to have their island back to themselves for a few months. But this is also a time of year that we locals (and whatever visitors are here) have to put forward a little extra thought in co-existing with the natural creatures we share this island paradise with. Although we have had a huge purge on the alligator population on the island since 2004, there are several factors that will guarantee our neighborhood lakes and ponds will always have gators in them. First of all, when a development lake is originally dredged out to get fill to make the surrounding land higher, the alligators are attracted to that beautiful new habitat. And then, when the sod lawns are put in, gently sloping down to the water, the gators think, What a wonderful sunning spot! And the lakes almost always have fish in them. I like to tell people that wonder why alligators are attracted to their lakefront home that, If the alligators could produce vacation/travel brochures, they would show a picture of a nice home with a green lawn leading down to the lake on the front of the brochure. What a wonderful place for an alligator to live! On top of that, because the alligator is a renewable resource with a valuable hide and meat, the states management program insures that we will always have gators in our residential neighborhoods. The states program will generally maintain a population of smaller gators in those ponds (which means less chance of serious injury to the human residents), but there will always be gators there. Thats why I stress we still need to be diligent about stopping anyone we see feeding the gators (or even just throwing a pebble at them; that simulates the act of feeding). If we can use Neighborhood Watch to protect our homes and families from things like burglary, why cant the same concept be used to protect our families from those people that like to turn the gators into monsters? Now that the weather has turned warm, however, there is an extra fact about alligator behavior that we have to keep an eye out for. In order for one alligator to get together with another alligator, quite often one of the gators is going to have to climb up onto land and walk through our yards to get into the other pond. So this time of year, carry a flashlight with you if you like going for an evening walk. That way, if you come across a gator lying in the street, you will see him before you get close enough that he hisses at you (or you trip over him), at which point you have a heart attack! But during the summer months, probably the most important caution we have to take is if a mother gator and her nest are discovered. Whereas most reptiles lay their eggs and then walk away for good; mother gators remain nearby and are particularly protective of their nest and young. If you come across a nest, I would give SCCF a call and let them know where the nest and mom are so the city can be notified and steps can be taken to protect the public and still allow the mother gator to do her thing (such as putting up a temporary fence separating the nest from human activity). Most exceptionally aggressive gators during the summer are going to be mothers protecting their nests and young. I worry that if the only action taken is to simply kill the aggressively behaving mother, the young will be lost also because the young will not usually survive on their own. But mother gators are not the only wild mothers that we should keep our eyes open for during the warm, summer months. This is also nesting season for our loggerhead turtles. Of course, it is now against the law to shine bright lights towards the beach during the nesting season and that legislation has helped a lot. These laws were passed because the lights can cause a nesting turtle to return to the water without laying her eggs and, later in the season when the young are hatching, the youngsters are drawn towards the artificial lights because that simulates the light of the moon reflecting off of the Gulf. I remember years ago seeing hundreds of baby hatchlings crushed while trying to cross the road along the beach on Captiva because the lights of the buildings on the other side attracted them. I find it interesting that once a mother loggerhead starts laying her eggs, she is very tolerant of human activity around her, but if she is bothered before she has begun digging her nest and depositing the eggs into the cavity, she will usually turn around and head back into the surf; and just crawling up onto the beach expends a lot of energy on her part. Why take a chance on causing her to waste all that precious energy? So if you see a loggerhead on the beach, give it plenty of space and let her do her thing. You may think you are just observing nature at its finest, but she may think the scariest creature on Earth just discovered where she planned on laying her eggs. She will abandon nesting because she cares too much about the safety of her young. I would hope that you would, too! And dont forget about the nesting terns and shorebirds (some of them endangered species) that raise their young on our beaches. Their nests and, particularly their hatchlings, are difficult to see because they are very well camouflaged. Watch where you walk, respect the staked-off nesting areas and dont let your children and pets harass the birds. They have a right to use our beaches, too!

From page 1Off-Island Estuary Tram Tourgrasses to local marine life. Once the tram crossed the causeway, Irvine pulled the vehicle off the roadway and onto an empty, mangrove-lined beach. He and Yetsko handed out a few dip nets and plastic collection trays before heading out into the water themselves, demonstrating to the group how to use a seine net to collect marine life samples. In their first attempt, they hit the jackpot: a horseshoe crab. Come over and touch the shell. And if youre real careful, you can feel the legs, too, said Yetsko, encouraging everyone not just the younger participants to get up close and personal with the arthropod. One by one, each member of the group made their way out into San Carlos Bay, wading into waist-deep water with a dip net, taking turns collecting larger amounts of marine life including pinfish, shrimp, jellyfish and even a young sheepshead within the larger seine net. During one net collection, a pufferfish was caught, which Yetsko was rather excited about.

return to the shore. In one of the trays filled with water and a few other fish, the pufferfish soon swelled-up into a small round orb, drawing several oohs and ahhs from both young and old. Yetsko and Irvine also shared interesting facts about the local estuary and the importance of healthy sea grasses and mangroves in order to support wildlife in Southwest Florida. On the ride back to the refuge, Yetsko pointed out a magnificent frigatebird also called the Pirate of the Sea which flew above the causeway. She noted that it was a female, due to the white markings along the breast and lower neck sides. The Estuary Exploratory Tram Tours are held every Tuesday and Thursday at 9 a.m. The fee is $13 for adults and $8 for children, which includes roundtrip transportation from the Ding Darling Education Center parking lot.

ISLAND SUN MAY 31, 201322 Hear The Story And Calls Of The OspreyResidents of and visitors to Southwest Florida find ospreys extremely entertaining. Unlike other birds, ospreys nest in the open on platforms, in snags, on top of channel markers, tall trees and chimneys so its easy to observe their behavior. Because ospreys are an indicator species for the health of local waters, Mark Bird Westall, owner/operator of Canoe Adventures, founded The International Osprey Foundation (TIOF) in 1979 to monitor the breeding success of these raptors. Join Westall, who writes Island Suns weekly Birds Eye View column, at the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) when he partners with longtime TIOF and CROW volunteer Claudia Burns for an informative presentation, during which Westall will demonstrate lifelike osprey calls. The Story of Ospreys is on Friday, May 31 at 11 a.m. in the CROW Healing Winds Visitor Education Center at 3883 Sanibel-Captiva Road, across from The Sanibel School. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for teens, free for members and children 12 and under. The fee includes the presentation, plus the opportunity to explore the hospitals hands-on educational facility and become familiar with CROWs efforts to save wildlife through compassion, care and education.

27 ISLAND SUN MAY 31, 2013Sneak Peek At New Novelby Di SaggauA brand new suspense novel by New York Times bestselling author Lisa Jackson will be in book stores this July. Tell Me is an electrifying novel. I had the opportunity to read an advance edition and Im here to tell you that Ms. Jackson is again showing readers why she is hailed as one of the best at romantic suspense. You are hooked from the first page, which introduces a scene that quickly changes from one of pleasure to one of terror. What happened one night to Amity, a high school friend of reporter Nikki Gillette, has haunted her forever and she will come close to sacrificing her own life to get the answers she needs. Amity had begged Nikki to meet with her that terrible night. Nikki didnt show, and the decision has gnawed at her ever since. Readers will recognize Nikki Gillette and Detective Pierce Reed, from Jacksons two biggest bestsellers, The Night Before and The Morning After. Now they are planning a wedding, but solving a horrific murder case takes priority. Twenty years ago, Blondell OHenry, a beautiful Savannah, Georgia woman, was found guilty of killing her own daughter and wounding her two other children in a vicious, unthinkable attack. The jurys verdict was greatly influenced by the testimony of her then 8-year-old son Niall, who is now recanting his testimony. The justice system is about to release Blondell from prison because Niall claims he was coerced by police to point the finger at his mother for what happened. Is she guilty of this blood-chilling crime or is she, as she has always maintained, truly innocent? Thats what Nikki is determined to find out. Shes also an author and is being pressured by her agent to come up with a new book. As she stares at pictures of Blondell, she knows that her next book will be about this case. But she has to work fast because timing is everything. She wants her story to get out before someone beats her to the punch. Everyone she runs up against tells her to back off, including Reed. Soon, Nikki realizes that the long-ago killing connects to her own fractured family, and that she has become a target. Lisa Jacksons books have millions of copies in print in 20 languages worldwide. Tell Me is based in part on the high-profile case of Diane Downs, an Oregon woman who shot her three children in the 1980s, killing one of them. The case resulted in the true crime book, Small Sacrifices by Ann Rule, and later a TV movie starring Farrah Fawcett. Jackson has a gift for making her characters so realistic they almost jump off the page. Her detailed descriptions are not limited to her characters; they also allow the reader to picture surroundings and wildlife, especially snakes. Yes, snakes, poisonous ones, play an integral part in the plot. Lisa Jackson is a respected author in Southwest Florida. She was the featured speaker last March at the Sanibel Public Library Foundations annual fundraiser. She has authored more than 75 novels. Watch for her latest, Tell Me, in book stores this July.

The pavilion will be named in perpetuity the Gale McBride Pavilion for Character and Ethics Education as a result of a $350,000 contribution to the Uncommon Friends Foundation, manager of the Burroughs Home. Edward and Gale McBride are former owners of WINK. The Edward and Gale McBride Foundation was established in 1989 by the late Edward McBride. Over the past 24 years, they have funded many educational charities, including being a significant donor to the Uncommon Friends Chair of Business Ethics at Florida Gulf Coast University. The Edward McBride and Jim and Ellie Newton Scholarships in Family Business are provided at Stetson University. Both of the McBrides are deceased. The pavilion will enable the Uncommon Friends Foundation to offer a year-round, climate controlled facility to provide a venue for character education and business ethics conferences, corporate meetings, non-profit events, weddings and other special occasion meetings. The architectural intent is to be complementary to an existing pavilion while offering versatility and protection during inclement weather conditions. Additional naming rights are being accepted. $50,000 gifts provide being recognized permanently as the pillars and founders of the foundations character and ethics society. Gates Construction has provided one such gift. $25,000 gifts provide being named as a supporting founder of the foundations character and ethics society. $1,000 gifts will be recognized in the program of all character and ethics education events held in the pavilion.continued on page 29 Artists rendering of the new pavillion at the Burroughs Home & Gardens S S Wbtntf Arbftb Mf Stbb, Ft Mbt Bb, FLFLORIDAPIRATECRUISE.COM 800-776-3258Sfb Ctb Ptb Ptb Ctbt F Sbtb Bt$5 OFFWITH THE PURCHASE OF 2 FARES.

The classes are scheduled from 10 to 11:30 a.m. in the Grand Cypress Room of The Woodlands at Shell Point Retirement Community. Tickets for classes are $10 each and can be purchased by calling 489-8472. June 4: Khasab The Norway of Arabia. Located at the northernmost tip of Oman separated from the rest of the Sultanate by the United Arab Emirates, Khasab has a rugged coastline that is often called the Norway of Arabia. With a rocky headland that juts into the Strait of Hormuz, Khasab has one of the most strategic shipping lanes in the world. June 18: Muscat Jewel of the Persian Gulf. Muscat, the beautiful historic capital of Oman, has been an important trading port since Roman times. Unlike other Gulf capitals, Muscat has truly retained its old world charm. June 25: Salalah Ancient Capital of Incense. Omans ancient incense capital is an oasis with lush vegetation resulting from seasonal monsoons. Marco Polo visited in the 13th century, and even the Queen of Sheba fell under the spell of the area and sent frankincense to impress King Solomon. We are delighted to welcome Professor Adrian Kerr back to The Academy, said Teri Kollath, manager of Volunteer Services and The Academy at Shell Point. He has a wonderful way of making history come alive for us in his informative and interesting presentations. Kerr is the author of Ancient Egypt and Us, a review of 3,000 years of history that focuses on how our modern religion, literature, art, architecture, medicine, cosmetics, warfare, peace treaties, mathematics, government, womens empowerment and science all have their roots in ancient Egypt. The Academy of Lifelong Learning at Shell Point is an educational initiative for the residents of the retirement community.

Collections Assistant Interns help organize, process and catalog the museums extensive shell collection. Hart is originally from Gainesville, Florida and is currently a senior at Florida Gulf Coast University studying Marine Science. He also served in the U.S. Marine Corps and was stationed in Washington, D.C. before going to school. Having lived in Florida for almost his entire life, he considers himself a true Floridian with the ocean being a big part of his life. He has had loved nature and its profound impact on the world around us since he was a child. Last year, Hart volunteered at the museum as a docent which he considers a great experience, and enjoyed the opportunity to share his love of mollusks with its visitors. He is currently trying to decide between becoming a marine biology teacher, or whether he would like to go to Australia to study the effects of coral bleaching along the countrys coasts. I love mollusks and I love viewing the different type of shells from around the world, Hart said. Shells I would never be able to just pick up off the coast of Southwest Florida. I hope to enhance my global shell knowledge even more through this internship. Hart lives in Fort Myers with his wife, Paige, and a 4-year-old daughter, Madilyn. He loves to fish and spend time with his family, recently mastering the art of mini golf. For more information about the museum and hours, visit www.shellmuseum.org or call 395-2233. Matt Hart

NEWSPAPERSanibel&CaptivaIslands BUSINESS REAL ESTATE CLASSIFIEDS VOL. 20, NO. 49 SANIBEL & CAPTIVA ISLANDS, FLORIDA MAY 31, 2013 B BSECTIONCaptiva Community Center Moves Forward With Renovationby Jeff LysiakOn May 22, Lee County approved the development order for the renovation and expansion of the Captiva Community Center, one of the final steps before construction begins on the $800,000 project. According to Paul Garvey, executive director of the Captiva Community Association, everyone involved with the multifaceted project is eager to see the work begin. This is a true community center, an all-purpose hall where we hold community meetings, social events and art shows, said Garvey. We just need a little more elbow room in here. Although the building will only be expanded approximately 10 percent, the renovated Captiva Community Center will offer: An all-purpose community hall, nearly doubling the size of the existing facility Enhanced opportunities for lectures, public meetings, socials, concerts, art exhibitions and other cultural entertainment activities New Captiva Island Historical Society-sponsored museum area New covered veranda leading from the hall to a native tree shaded courtyard New caterer-designed warming kitchen for socials and special events Expansion of Captiva Memorial Librarys juvenile room, patron reading room, computer and work areas New roofs for both the community center and LCSO deputy residence Handicap-accessible entrances and ramps Installation of emergency standby generator for use as public cooling and rehab center when needed following major storm events. The lighting is going to be better the air conditioning is going to be better and were not going to be tripping over each other, added Garvey. The Captiva Community Center (CCA) is funded and operated by members of the Captiva Civic Association. It opened in 1961 with a meeting hall together with a fire station built by the CCA for the Captiva Volunteer Fire Department the year prior. The center was expanded in 1970 to provide dedicated library space for the Captiva Memorial Library. After the fire department moved to larger facilities in 1981, the old fire station was divided into offices and conference rooms. In 1989, the historic Belton Johnson Cottage was relocated to the Captiva Community Center grounds and renovated as a residence for a sheriff deputy and family. CCA members funded a major renovation of the library in 1995 into an exceptional library facility for Captivans, their guests and visitors. While no official start date for the project has been announced, Garvey estimated the project to be completed within six months. If begun shortly, continued on page 9B Paul Garvey, executive director of the Captiva Community Association, looks over floor plans of the Captiva Community Center with administrative assistant Sherry Isler photo by Jeff Lysiak Artists rendering of the new Captiva Community Center, which will undergo a six-month renovation and expansion

One of those advantages is the accessibility of our local government leaders. If youre so inclined, you can drop by Sanibel City Hall for the city council meetings or government committee meetings. Recently, we have seen Sanibel Mayor Kevin Ruane and Councilman Mick Denham out and about, speaking to various clubs and organizations on the island about land development projects that are under consideration. Ruane stopped by our Rotary club meeting to give us a compressed version of how things are going with plans for developing what is being called the Civic Core or what some are calling a Cultural Corridor. Many islanders sat in the lobby of the Holiday Inn Bell Tower on Friday, August 13, 2004, anxiously awaiting news reports regarding how Hurricane Charley had impacted our island. The news was not good. Sanibel and Captiva had been hit hard and property damages caused havoc on the island for everyone. Although Ruane had only been on the island a few years, somehow he got on the island shortly after the hurricane had passed. He witnessed the devastation of our island properties at their worst but he also witnessed how our islanders were at their best during the cleanup. That hurricane got local government really thinking about build-back on the island. Commercial and private properties built before the city was incorporated realized that they could have lost their ability to build back their properties under the city of Sanibels land-usage restrictions. Getting the island back to normal was the first priority but then city council needed to take a good look at land usage and development, how to handle a disaster build-back, how to repair and update aging and storm impacted properties, how to encourage the business community to update their facilities. City council, planning committees and city staff have worked on these items with a lot input from the community, and progress and changes have been made. The city has managed to pay back loans and now has money in reserve, has balanced the city budget and has cut taxes. Ruane and council are now considering the formation of a new area around city hall and the library carved from land currently housing the citys public works department for use as a Civic Core/ Cultural Center on Sanibel. Some community and non-profit organizations on the island are in need of updating or rebuilding their current facilities, including BIG ARTS, The Community House and Center 4 Life. The time is right to consider a plan to encourage these entities to rebuild their facilities somewhere on or near the 26 acres of land east of the Sanibel Public Works Department west of the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village. Ruane pictures this as a walkable area with shared use paths and parking pods where you can take an exercise program at the Center 4 Life or The Community House, walk over to BIG ARTS for Current Events, check out the new exhibits at the historical village, pick up a book at the library, walk down to Palm Ridge for a bite to eat. This Civic Core/Cultural Center discussion is just at the preliminary planning stage and lots of public discussion on this topic will take place over the next months but there seems to be a sincere desire to create this center core of island activity and help alleviate traffic back-ups on Periwinkle Way. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets at 7 a.m. every Friday at Sanibel Island Golf Club, 1100 Par View Drive.

Formerly known as the Good Neighbor Foundation, the Charitable Foundation of the Islands is dedicated to strengthening the fabric of our community by supporting island residents, workers and nonprofit organizations. Schuberts leadership and experience helped the new organization develop a strategic plan and a focus on meeting the goals of those in need. John Schubert is a true philanthropist and has done so much to help so many over the years, said Al Hanser, Chairman of the Charitable Foundation of the Islands. From his support of the Kanzius Cancer Research Foundation, to his passion and commitment to the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife to his personal donations to fund scholarships at FGCU, it is clear to see that John has a love for all humanity. It is an honor to work with such a remarkable man and Sanibel and Captiva Islands are privileged to have him as a friend. Charitable Foundation of the Islands chairman Al Hanser, right, presents a plaque to retiring board member John Schubert SanCap Trust Company Advises Investors To Be Careful, Not FearfulIs Goldilocks, in fact, alive and well again? Throughout much of the 1980s and 1990s, professional money managers and market pundits alike tried to put a name to the economy we saw unfolding during that time. Despite the stock market crash in 1987, the Savings and Loan crisis in the early 1990s, and fears of looming deficits as far as the eye could see, the U.S. economy experienced two of the longest streaks of uninterrupted growth on record, separated by a short recessionary period in 1990. Thus was the descriptive Goldilocks economy born. Growth was not too hot, not too cold. Interest rate movements were not too hot, not too cold. Corporate profit growth was not too hot, not too cold. The result for Naples investors was to see both equities and bonds increase in value, and enormous wealth was created, according to Pat Dorsey, CFA, Director of Research at The Sanibel Captiva Trust Company. Then the three bears came home or at least, one big bear market came to pay a visit. The popping of the tech bubble in the early 2000s, plus a whopper of a financial crisis in 2008 brought valuations of many companies back to earth. Today we may be looking at a return of Goldilocks, with not only the U.S. economy, but also the rest of the world showing modest yet sustainable growth. Not that we are going to quickly jump back to the previous record high levels of housing starts, auto sales, employment and general economic optimism, but the rate of change in those four important economic indicators is most definitely positive. And with that will come better overall headlines relative to the current negative headlines about the ongoing EuroZone stalemate, slowing growth in China, and political paralysis in Washington. Not too hot, and not too cold perhaps just right for some time. (Note we present this as a possibility not a forecast. ) We will be watching monetary policy coming from the Federal Reserve but we dont expect any noticeable tightening of that policy until the unemployment rate dips from the current 7.7 to 6.5 percent (projected to take at least another two years). We will also be watching signs of fiscal policy stabilization as a combination of government spending cutbacks and tax increases work to address our long-term deficit issues. And we will be watching for progress on non-U.S. issues related to the growth of emerging markets and the depth and duration of the European recession. Our wealth management approach is data-driven we watch the world closely to assure that our current outlook is still valid, and that client accounts do not need to be adjusted for any new information. Thus, we remain vigilant in our investment philosophy and process, looking only for those best assets that can deliver investment gains over time despite whatever short-term challenges are thrown at those asset valuations by political or economic forces. As always we are being careful but not fearful, Dorsey said. To advertise in the Island Sun Call 395-1213

ISLAND SUN MAY 31, 20138B College Football Headlines In The Midst Of Basketball, Hockey Playoffsby Ed FrankThe 2013 college football season is months away, but two events the last week involving high profile collegiate teams already have tongues wagging even though we are in the midst of hockey and basketball playoffs and the baseball season is only two months old. The first item stirred the passion of Florida fans when former Gator coach Urban Meyer once again issued his regrets over his departure from Gatorland three years ago. His leaving has left a bad taste in the mouths of Florida followers, particularly when he took over the Ohio State job a year later. In an interview with CBSSports.com, Meyer said he would still be coaching in Gainesville if not for health-related issues. He retired briefly, but he said he called Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley early in 2011 to tell him, I made a mistake. Once I felt like everything was under control, it was like, Oh my gosh, what did I do? A few months later, however, he took the Buckeye job a job he once said was his dream job even while coaching Florida. In his first season, Meyer directed Ohio State to a perfect 12-0 record, although the school was banned from post-season play due to infractions by his predecessor. You can bet the bank that Florida fans would like nothing better than to face Ohio State in the future in the national championship game. Just guess the reception Meyer would get from his former school. The second college football headline was the suspension of Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson for scholastic reasons. Although Golson said he intends to repair his classroom problems and hopes to return in 2014, his departure is one of many problems that have plagued the Irish since their 42-14 thumping by Alabama in the BSC title game in January. First there was Irish coach Brian Kelly interviewing for the Philadelphia Eagles coaching job days after NDs humiliating loss to Alabama. Then there have been transfers to other schools by receivers Davonte Neal and Justin Ferguson and quarterback Gunner Kiel, recruited as the nations top quarterback, although he didnt play a single down for the Irish last season. He left for Cincinnati, Kellys former school. And there are rumors that five-star defensive line recruit Eddie Vanderdoes is reconsidering his commitment to Notre Dame and may seek to get out of his national letter of intent. With the turmoil at South Bend, Kelly will have to perform magic next season to repeat his perfect 12-0 regular season record last year. First Place Miracle On Road This Weekend; Return Home Next Week The Fort Myers Miracle baseball team started the week with a 6-1/2 game lead in the Florida State League South Division as the seasons first-half moved toward its final month. A division title in the seasons first-half 70-game schedule will qualify the Miracle for post-season play. With a 35-14 (.714) season record, Fort Myers is on the road this weekend at Palm Beach before returning to Hammond Stadium on Monday for a four-game series against Brevard County. The Monday through Thursday games have 7:05 p.m. starts. Miquel Sano and Eddie Rosario continue to pace the team with .341 and .309 batting averages, respectively.

ISLAND SUN MAY 31, 201310B School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, I really liked what you said in a recent column about kids becoming self-advocates. I want to work on this with my daughter who has ADHD. What are some things I can do? Luisa G., Fort Myers, Florida Luisa, Self-advocacy is a very important skill for students to learn in order to be successful at all stages of their lives. Formerly, self-advocacy was a term applied for the most part to adults with disabilities but recent research suggests that learning to self-advocate is an important part of success for college and in the work force. According to psychologist Jodie Dawson, Self-advocacy is understanding your strengths and needs, identifying your personal goals, knowing your legal rights and responsibilities, and communicating these to others. Since your daughter has learning struggles, she must learn how to maneuver through lifes challenges to make sure her needs are met. She must understand her strengths and limitations, know how they affect her performance, and be able to communicate this to other people. Dr. Dawson has shared some ideas for developing self-advocacy skills. She says that the young person must understand his or her learning difficulty and then understand how they learn best. The student should know his or her strengths and weaknesses and the strategies, accommodations and environments that help them learn best. Teachers and specialists at school can help with this and personal reflection on these issues is also important. To self-advocate successfully, the student must be able to communicate this self-knowledge to others. Your child must be clear in her requests and prepared with explanations. The manner in which she communicates can either create supporters for her or push people away. Your daughter will probably need your help preparing ahead of time, planning what she will say. Role-playing is a great way to practice communication skills by helping her anticipate different situations, creating a script that she can use and thus raise her level of confidence for these encounters. Throughout high school and beyond, your child will face many situations where shell be required to inform and educate others about her learning disability. Friends may ask questions about her special attention at school and teachers unfamiliar with her needs will need more information about how she learns. On the job, she may require a specific workrelated accommodation. At times, these situations may feel uncomfortable for your child but the more self-knowledge she has, the better shell be at advocating for herself. Its important to help your child identify her support system early on. Who does she trust and feel comfortable talking to parent, relative, teacher, administrator, counselor, mentor, tutor? She needs to have people she can turn to for help, especially once she leaves home. This way she wont have to feel so alone as she navigates through life. By enabling your teenager to self-advocate, youll help her develop skills necessary for success in learning and life. Talk with her regularly to reflect on whats going well for her and what isnt. Using a self-reflective questioning technique may also be helpful. Here is an excellent site for a list of questions a teen can use for this activity: http://www.emotional-intelligence-education.com/self-reflection.html. Self-evaluation is often where the greatest learning takes place. 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.

12B ISLAND SUN MAY 31, 2013Journey To South America Part IVsubmitted by Patty MolnarBuenos Aires, Argentinas capital of 4 million, is known as the Paris of South America, and looking around at the citys wide boulevards, plazas with fountains and statuary and lovely architecture one immediately sees why. First stop of the day was the main square or Plaza de Mayo where we saw Casa Rosada (the Presidential Palace) and the Buenos Aires Cathedral. Because it was a Sunday and the newly-elected Pope Francisco comes from the city, the church was surrounded by TV crews and people hawking all manner of papal souvenirs. The world became aware of the Plaza de Mayo during a dark chapter in Argentinas history, from 1976-l982, when a military junta ruled the country and 30,000 dissenters were murdered, becoming known as the disappeareds. It was to the Plaza de Mayo that mothers wearing white scarves came to silently march in protest, carrying placards with words such as Where have you taken my daughter and grandson? A strange fact is that opponents of the junta were often taken from their homes in Falcons, an unprepossessing, ubiquitous Ford automobile model manufactured in Argentina at the time. Victims were usually brutally tortured in dungeons before being killed. One of the junta leaders just died on May 18 in prison where he was serving a life sentence for crimes against humanity. The junta fell after the countrys loss of the Falklands War to Great Britain. The Falkland Islands, located off the coast of Argentina but belonging to England, became the subject of a dispute when Argentina announced its intention to go after potential oil resources there. The two-month war resulted in the deaths of 640 Argentinians, 250 British and the re-election of British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher by an elated electorate. The oil that was eventually found on the Islands was too dirty, too deep down and therefore useless. From the Plaza de Mayo in the center of the city we went to a poorer bohemian area of small houses and shops called La Boca, the first harbor in Buenos Aires. It was here that Italian immigrants settled at the beginning of the 20th century. (talians represent the largest ethnic group to come to Argentina, and the Spanish spoken here has a definite Italian lilt. Being destitute, these newcomers built dwellings from any scrap material they could find, and most of the facades are corrugated metal painted in cheerful colors, giving the area a certain charm. Our guide, Alejandro, made no effort to sugar-coat the political and economic situation in his country. We were shown a shantytown a few hundred yards away from the La Boca neighborhood,and we drove past many homeless people sleeping on the sidewalks. Alejandro also said that, while the government of President Christina Fernandez de Kirchner asserts that inflation is only 7 percent, the actual figure is closer to 25 percent. This means that U.S. dollars are highly desirable right now. While the official exchange rate stood at five pesos to the dollar while we were there, the unofficial rate in many shops was 7seven pesos to the dollar, making Argentina a shopping paradise for travelers from the U.S. In Buenos Aires, we stayed in the Ricoleta neighborhood which reminded us of the Upper East Side in Manhattan, complete with exclusive shops, cafes and lots of dog walkers! A highlight was a visit to the Ricoleta cemetery, the resting place of many of the rich and famous, perhaps the most notable of whom is the iconic figure Eva (Evita) Peron. The entire cemetery is designed in sections like city blocks, with walkways branching off into sidewalks lined with mausoleums. The variety of architectural styles give the cemetery the feel of an open-air museum. A bit to the north of Ricoleta lies the Palermo section of Buenos Aires, another lovely area with a number of embassies and parks. Palermo Park, touted as the most beautiful in the city, is dominated by a sculpture, Florales Genericas, by the Argentine architect Eduardo Catalano, Casa Rosada, the Presidential Palace, in the Plaza del Mayo The Parliament Building in the Plaza del Mayo This amazing sculpture opens in the morning and closes at night The funky La Boca neighborhood

This ingenious work, built by Lockheed Martin out of aluminum, features a huge flower whose petals open during the day and close at night. A tour of Teatro Colon, the citys storied opera house, is an absolute must for any visitor to Buenos Aires. Teatro Colon, completed in 1910, reopened in 2010 following a three-year, $100 million renovation. When construction began in 1888, Buenos Aires citizenry still looked to Europe as the standard to be met in matters of style. Therefore it was deemed important that all building materials, including three different types of marble, be imported from there. Teatro Colon has the second-best acoustics of any opera house in the world, with Milans La Scala holding first place honors. From the many admonitiions our group received about not venturing forth from the hotel wearing jewelry or carrying anything of value, it was clear that security is an obvious concern in Buenos Aires.

15B ISLAND SUN MAY 31, 2013 From time to time I get calls from an adult child of one of my clients accusing a sibling of stealing money from their common parent. Sometimes the accusations are baseless, as the accused child may be doing nothing more than withdrawing funds to take care of their mother or father, and the sibling has no idea how much medical and nursing care costs. But sometimes the accusations have some merit. The difficulty lies in what to do about it when it happens. As it turns out, Florida law defines abuse of the elderly, and imposes harsh terms for those that partake in this activity. So today please allow me to pose a scenario in asking whether abuse of an elderly person has occurred:Assume that Dad is only 60 years old but despite his relatively young age he suffers from some form of cognitive impairment. Son, who is Dads only child and sole beneficiary under Dads will, is also a joint owner with rights of survivorship on Dads brokerage account. The brokerage account assets approximating $400,000 consist solely of Dads savings, as Son has not contributed any amounts to it.Five years ago Dad placed the account in joint name with Son in an effort to avoid probate at Dads death and for convenience purposes should Son need to assist Dad in writing checks and paying bills. During the five-year period Dad didnt make a transfer of any amounts to Son other than to pay Dads share of their living expenses. Dad has a full bevy of estate planning documents, and has gone so far as to name Son as his agent under a valid Durable Power of Attorney. Dad is subsequently adjudicated incompetent in a guardianship court. Shortly thereafter, Son has Dad write a check out of the brokerage account transferring $100,000 to Son personally who then deposits the money in Sons own personal account. Is this elder abuse? There is a strong argument that Son has committed a first degree felony under Florida law, specifically .103(2) (a). Florida law punishes individuals who stand in a position of trust or confidence with the elderly person when they exploit the elderly. Exploiting under the law includes knowingly obtaining or using an elderly persons funds, assets or property with the intent to temporarily or permanently deprive the elderly person of the use, benefit or possession of them. The statute defines an individual as standing in a position of trust or confidence as a person who is a parent, spouse, adult child or other relative by blood or marriage, is a joint tenant with the elderly person on an asset, has a legal or fiduciary relationship to the elderly person (such as holding a Durable Power of Attorney or acting as trustee of a trust), is a caregiver or otherwise is entrusted with the elderly persons funds, assets or property. So even though Dad has named Son as his agent under a Durable Power of Attorney, coupled with the facts that Son is also a joint owner on the brokerage account and is Dads sole beneficiary under his will, it would appear under the statute that when Son stuck the $100,000 check under Dads nose after Dad had been adjudicated incompetent that Son committed a very serious crime. The fact that Son had been in a position of authority over Dad actually worsens Sons case, not betters it. The law imposes the burden on those who have that trust. And even though Dad is only 60 years old, the law defines elderly as anyone over 60, or if one is disabled and over 18, they could also be protected under the statute. Unfortunately, elderly abuse is common here in Florida. It would appear that a vast majority of cases goes unreported as many involve family members, who are reluctant to press charges against one another. Nevertheless, elderly abuse is serious business. The punishment for elderly abuse under the statute includes restitution and imprisonment, depending upon the degree and severity of the abuse. Financial abuse is not the only type covered under the law. Abuse can also include lewd or lascivious acts committed upon or in the presence of an elderly person, and the infliction of physical or psychological injury, including acts or omissions that might lead to such injuries. If you believe that an elderly person has been abused, or if you want additional information about elderly abuse, you can call the Florida Department of Elder Affairs at 1-800-96-ABUSE or visit the website at http://elderaffairs.state.fl.us/ doea/report_abuse.php.

Hersch, Florida Bar Board Certified Wills, Trusts & Estates Attorney; CPA Superior InteriorsDecorative Fabrics by Cindy MalszyckiNothing in your home will generate warmth and appeal more than the decorative fabrics used. A review of available fabrics will assist the homeowner in the sometimes-confusing selection process. Is Any Fabric As Rich As Silk? Imported from the Orient for centuries, the very word silk generates opulence in ones imagination. How can a room not feel elegant with the incomparable sheen, texture and depth of color that silk offers? While there may be no more beautiful designer fabric, there are certain cautions to be taken when using silk, primarily its sensitivity to direct sunlight. Your decorator will specify not only a quality lining but also an interlining for protection from the strong Florida sun. When used for upholstery, silk should always be enhanced with a knit backing. Cotton Is Still King Originating in Egypt, cotton is one of the most versatile and appealing of all fibers, natural or manmade. In the home, cotton is a decorative fabric mainstay. It dyes beautifully, and when finely spun, combed and tightly woven, it is both beautiful and sturdy, lasting for years. If opulence is your goal, but budget and durability are important, choose a high quality cotton fabric in a rich hue or fabulous print. Pre-historic Linen Long before anyone thought to unwind a silkworm cocoon or plant a row of cotton, linen was being woven into fabric. While dimensionally stable and easily bleached, linen generally does not take dyes well, thus limiting the range and depth of colors available. Since linen is readily recognizable and tends to be expensive, it immediately lends prestige to any room it adorns. However, linen is prone to wrinkling and does not iron easily, so those who enjoy perfection should make another selection. Manmade Fabrics The 1950s brought manmade fabrics, but they lacked many of the features that were so desirable in the natural fabrics. But chemists persevered until today we have many beautiful choices in the manmades. Still, there are a few drawbacks. No synthetic fabric will have the depth of color in a silk nor the ability to be woven into the complex patterns available in cottons.

So calm down and cool off, and let the explanations roll out. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Its upsetting when someone you trusted might have failed you. But with new opportunities ahead, youll soon be too busy to feel even a wee bit sorry for yourself. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A sense of uncertainty could be a good reason to change your position on an important matter. Someone close might try to talk you out of it, but its your decision to make. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Being too zealous in pursuing your goal could create some resistance. Try to be more mindful of what you ask people to do, and theyll be more likely to do it. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Things change as you go from being ignored to being Lionized once again. This is a good time to reintroduce those previously rejected ideas to a more receptive audience. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Someone new in your life creates both anticipation as well as anxiety. Avoid the potential for misunderstandings by watching what you say and how you say it. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Watch your budget so that you dont overspend now and have less to invest when the time is right later on. Arrange to share your weekend with someone special. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) The temptation to involve yourself in a friends or family members personal problems is laudable. But get the facts before you make a firm commitment. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) You might be upset by some of your critics. But most of your associates continue to keep the faith in your ability to get the job done, and done well. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Youve reached an important point in your ongoing pursuit of your goals. You might now want to consider letting someone you trust join you on your journey. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Youve been going through a spate of uncertainty involving people you care for. But it might be time to take a stand on a position you feel sure you can defend. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Treading water keeps you busy, but it wont get you where you need to go. Time to stop making excuses and to start moving ahead toward your goals. BORN THIS WEEK: You see life as both creative and pragmatic. You would not only be a fine artist, but also a successful one. On June 4, 1896, Henry Ford unveils the Quadricycle. The 500-pound vehicle had two driving speeds, no reverse, no brakes, rudimentary steering ability and a doorbell button as a horn. It could reach about 20 mph. On June 7, 1913, Hudson Stuck, an Alaskan missionary, leads the first successful ascent of Mt. McKinley, the highest point on the American continent at 20,320 feet. Stuck and two others began the climb in March and faced challenges of difficult weather and a fire at one of their camps, which destroyed food and supplies. On June 6, 1933, eager motorists park their automobiles on the grounds of the Park-In movie theater in New Jersey, the first-ever drive-in movie theater. Inventor Richard Hollingshead had come up with the idea in the driveway of his own house, where he perfected projection and sound techniques. On June 8, 1949, Hollywood figures, including film stars Frederic March and Edward G. Robinson, are named in a FBI report as Communist Party members. The FBI report relied largely on accusations made by confidential informants, supplemented with some highly dubious analysis. Helen Keller also was on the list of radicals. On June 5, 1968, U.S. Sen. Robert Kennedy is shot at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles after winning the California presidential primary. Kennedy was shot by 22-year-old Palestinian Sirhan Sirhan, and died a day later. On June 9, 1972, a flash flood hits Rapid City, S.D., when 15 inches of rain fall in only six hours. The spillway for the Pactola Dam got clogged with debris, leading to the collapse of the dam and a devastating wave of water that crushed most of the nearby buildings and swept away 238 people. On June 3, 1989, with protests for democratic reforms entering their seventh week, the Chinese government authorizes its soldiers and tanks to reclaim Beijings Tiananmen Square. By nightfall on June 4, Chinese troops had forcibly cleared the square, killing hundreds and arresting thousands of demonstrators and suspected dissidents. It was Albert Einstein who made the following sage observation: The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them. According to some Native American tribes, all you have to do to make a wish come true is to catch a butterfly, whisper your wish to it and set it free. If you drive a white automobile, you have a lot of company. There are more white cars in the United States than any other color. You probably are aware that the names that foreign places are known by in the English language are not always the same as the names of those places in the local tongue. The capital of Russia is called Moskva in that country, and to Italians its not Venice, but Venezia. Not all names sound so similar, though; if you didnt know the language, it would be nearly impossible to figure out that Ellinki Dimokratia is what Greeks call their country, and that Konungariket Sverige is Sweden to the Swedish. South Korea is known locally as Han Kook, China is Zhonghua Renmin Gonghe Guo, and Finland is Suomen Tasavalta. When Hernan Cortes reached the New World in the 1600s, he found the Aztecs drinking hot chocolate at their banquets. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt added both a swimming pool and a movie theater to the White House. You probably knew that cats were revered in ancient Egypt, but did you know that when a domestic cat died, the family went into mourning? Yep. People would shave their eyebrows to demonstrate their grief over the passing of their beloved pet. The nice thing about being a celebrity is that if you bore people they think its their fault. -Henry Kissinger THIS WEEK IN HISTORY STRANGE BUT TRUE THOUGHT FOR THE DAY18B ISLAND SUN MAY 31, 2013

Hersch|Attorney, CPAFlorida Bar Board Certied, Wills, Trusts & Estates Island Sun Will Power Columnist New Academic Offering At Edison StateStudents at Edison State College launched a Model UN club in August 2012. Now the club, Edison State College Model United Nations, will be listed as an academic offering for the honors program for the 2013-2014 school year. To graduate from Edison, students must fulfill international and diversity requirements, and if they choose to participate in the Model UN annual conference, they can receive the six credits necessary. The Edison State College Model UN is designed to engage students with their peers from colleges and universities worldwide. The program allows students to research the challenges facing the world today in fields ranging from international peace and security to economic and social progress and human rights. Once students have done the research, they make original, intellectual and creative contributions through an emphasis on critical thinking, argument formation, cooperation and compromise. These students worked formally three hours a week for the year to prepare for the conference. This was without any incentive like academic credit, said Dr. Laura Weir, professor of political science and history at Edison State College. My goal for them was to demonstrate they were just as capable as students from Harvard, Yale or the University of Chicago. They were intimidated by the idea, especially the first night when all 3,000 plus students got together. But they quickly realized they knew what they were talking about and knew how to accomplish their objectives just as well as any other student there. This entire experience has allowed the students not only to build on their academic capabilities, but has boosted their self confidence in their leadership skills as well. One of Edison States goals is to open students minds academically and enhance their abilities to become community leaders. One way students engage and discuss topics with their peers from other colleges and universities is to attend The Harvard University Model United Nations Conference. This year the conference was February 13 to 17 and six members of the Edison State College Model UN attended. The goal of the conference is to prepare students to be better global citizens through quality educational experiences that emphasize collaboration and cooperative resolution of conflict. The emphasis is on the vision of a world comprised of civically engaged people who strive for peaceful, multi-lateral conflict resolution and equitable, sustainable human development. The 2013 Harvard University conference included over 3,000 delegates from more than 40 countries. The returning Edison State College members plan to participate in the Harvard University Conference again in February 2014 and hope to includecontinued on page 21B

21B ISLAND SUN MAY 31, 2013 deaRPharmacistLyme Disease And Bartonella: More Common Than You Thinkby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: On Facebook, you said people catch Lyme disease from their pets, which tote ticks. Thats how I got Lyme, and I have Bartonella too. I found out because of you, and it explained my symptoms of joint pain, confusion, memory loss and seizures. I owe my life to you! I love you, dont take that the wrong way. DC, Des Moines, Iowa Thank you. Lyme is the fastest growing epidemic in the United States. Its been a focus for me ever since my first column which sparked thousands of atta girl emails from 27 countries. Few medical journalists tackle Lyme because its extremely controversial. You see, some physicians dont believe chronic Lyme exists, and theres a huge divide about treatment protocols. So while the docs are busy arguing about whether its real, and how long to treat, most Lymies are misdiagnosed. They bounce from doctor to doctor, suffer beyond belief and some die. Others want to. There are 30 Bartonella-like or Bart species; you can get infected from cat bites/scratches, mites, fleas, mosquitoes, biting flies and ticks. Sadly, antibody blood tests only detect a few strains. So your test result may say negative for Bart (and Lyme for that matter) but you still have it. Physicians unaware of the limitations of standard ELISA blood tests mistakenly accept a negative result and diagnose you with a neurological or autoimmune disease, fibromyalgia, CFS or any one of 300 diseases that Lyme mimics. Its a terrible oversight because you might really have Lyme and co-infections like Bart, Babesia or Ehrlichia. Im sure you are alarmed by now, but do you realize theres no conclusive test for fibromyalgia or CFS? These are diagnoses of exclusion, meaning your doctor tests you and rules out every other disease before stamping you with fibro/ CFS. But you must ask if Lyme and Bartonella have been ruled out properly by capable, specialized laboratories. For Lyme, I recommend Igenex Labs. For Bartonella, I recommend either Igenex or Galaxy Labs. With all their limitations, theyre still more reliable than standard ELISA tests, which are frequently wrong. I interviewed a Lyme-literate medical doctor, Marty Ross MD who said, I often make my decision to treat Bartonella based on symptoms. If you have enough Bartonella symptoms, you should be treated for the infection regardless of testing. I suggest you get Dr. Rosss free treatment manual from www.TreatLyme. net. Bart symptoms include chronic fatigue, pain, muscle twitching (fasciculations), anxiety, depression, abdominal pain, vomiting, fever/chills, autistic-like symptoms, hallucinations, neuropathy, tinnitus, joint pain, skin rash, stretch marks, memory loss, brain fog, cystitis or excessive day sweats.

Eden Energy MedicinePlump The Diaphragm To Oxygenate Your Bodyby Karen L. Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAMLIn our culture, most of us tend to be shallow breathers, not taking those deep belly breathes that we learn in yoga. By breathing in such a shallow fashion, it impacts the diaphragm, the horizontal wall of muscle partition between the chest and abdomen that acts as a bellows, forcing oxygen through our body. If not used and exercised to its capacity, it will become tight, lose its rhythm and thus not function optimally, making you more susceptible to illness and disease. Consider the impact on your breathing when sitting on Periwinkle Way for an hour during the high season, especially if you have an appointment. You feel the locking in your chest, perhaps begin to get a headache or experience muscle spasms in some part of your body. This is evidence that your diaphragm is not functioning well. When full, the diaphragm helps pump both subtle energies and oxygen throughout the body. So, if you are experiencing short or shallow breathing; have memory problems; feel distressed or are fearful; having trouble letting go of emotions, ideas or events (i.e. continually rehashing the same issue over and over); experience acid reflux or hiatal hernia; or have a headache, then its time for this technique to Free The Diaphragm. Step 1. Place the left hand under the center of your rib cage with the right hand placed directly on top of the left. Pull the elbows close against the body. Step 2. Inhale deeply and push your upper belly toward the hands while holding the hands firmly against the pressure of your upper belly. Hold the breadth while maintaining the pressure between body and hands. The longer the breadth is held and the more pressure exerted from the body being pushed out to meet the hands, the better. Step 3. When you release the breath, ease the hands. Repeat this process three times Step 4. On an in breath, place the right hand around the left side of the waist and with pressure pull wide spread fingers toward the navel. Repeat three times. Switch and use the left hand at the right waist. Repeat three times. Step 5. Sweep the energy from the waist down the legs. You have just moved oxygen throughout the body, improved your circulation, enhanced your auric field, pulsed your energy field and restored the horizontal flow of energy around your waist! Have fun with your energy! Send me your questions. Next weeks topic is Safeguarding Your Breasts. If you have a questions for Karen, email her at ksemmelmanenergy@ gmail.com.

ISLAND SUN MAY 31, 201322B Tarpon Bay Explorers Rentals, Tours To Benefit Victims In OklahomaThe devastation of the May 20 tornado in Moore, Oklahoma left as many as 24 people dead, damage to more than 13,000 homes and could cost over $2 billion. Ten of those 24 people were children. We can only imagine the anguish and grief this has caused these residents. The tornado was on the ground for approximately 40 minutes and swept over 17 miles. Wind speeds were measured at upwards of 200 mph. Numerous people have now been left homeless. Recovery from this tragic event is going to be slow and costly. On Saturday, June 8, Tarpon Bay Explorers will donate all proceeds taken in from rentals and tours to benefit the victims of the Oklahoma tornado. This will include all guided tours, bicycle rentals, standup paddleboard rentals, pontoon rentals, fishing charters and kayak and canoe rentals. We extend our thanks to Wendy Schnapp and Winston and Barbara Spurgeon for making this benefit possible. For more information, contact Tarpon Bay Explorers at 472-8900 or visit www. tarponbayexplorers.com. Mom And Me by Lizzie and PryceLizzie and Pryce answer your questions and give advice about aging concerns from a two-generational perspective. A mother and daughter team, Lizzie is a retired RN and health educator, and Pryce is a licensed psychotherapist in private practice who specializes in the care of elders and people with chronic illnesses. Dear Mom & Me, When my daughter was in her early 20s, she married a man 20 years her senior. My husband and I were not pleased, but he was her choice. The years have passed, and now I am a widow. My son-in-law and I have more in common with each other than he has with my daughter. This is compounded by my daughter telling me that she has been having an affair for the last five years with a married co-worker in her office (who is her own age). Of course, her husband does not know and I feel dreadful keeping her secret. I am not financially dependent on my daughter, but emotionally I am very dependent. I feel terrible being in the middle, living such a lie and being so deceitful to a kind, caring husband. What shall I do? Hazel Dear Hazel, You certainly are in the middle, straddled between a daughter with poor judgment and a son-in-law who is being deceived by your daughters poor judgment. As much as you may want to correct the situation, it is not your business. Whether you are dependent on your daughter or not, your daughters life with her husband is not your business. You can encourage her to rethink her behavior, but to tell on her is not a good choice. The best position for you is to be neutral. Pryce Dear Hazel, Your daughter seems to have you all held hostage to her lifestyle. Pryce, if you ever acted like this, I would be furious and very hurt. I would talk to you privately and discuss this problem and tell you how I feel and ask for your solution. This would be a very difficult meeting for me because I would be disgusted and appalled at your behavior. Lizzie Lizzie and Pryces email address is momandmeaging@hotmail.com. Safety Program For Alzheimers CaregiversThe Alvin A. Dubin Alzheimers Resource Center is pleased to offer a Safety Program for Alzheimers caregivers in Lee County. The Dubin Alzheimers Resource Centers Safety Program was created to provide caregivers with tools to implement an emergency plan to prevent crises. Each Safety Program packet includes two components: 1) an emergency plan kit and 2) an identification bracelet for the memory impaired person. The emergency plan kit is intended to help eliminate the possibility of a crisis situation if the caregiver of a loved one with Alzheimers disease or a related disorder requires emergency care. The emergency workers who come to rescue the caregiver may not know a memory impaired adult resides in the home, and therefore, may leave the person with Alzheimers alone when they take the caregiver to the hospital. The Safety Program Universal Symbol, included with the emergency plan kit, is designed to alert emergency workers that a memory-impaired person resides in the home. The symbol hangs on the front of the homes refrigerator. The corresponding packet of forms, which contain important emergency contacts and care instructions provided by the caregiver, are located inside the refrigerator. Once a trained emergency worker sees the symbol, he or she will automatically know to search for an Alzheimers client in the house and, using the information in the refrigerator, take appropriate measures to see that care for this person is provided. The Dubin Alzheimers Resource Center caring staff works closely with local law enforcement and emergency workers throughout Lee County to help train them on how the safety program can assist them when they respond to an emergency involving the caregiver of an individual with memory loss. The safety program packet is provided at no charge to caregivers caring for a loved one with memory loss in their homes in Lee County. Each packet contains all the items necessary to participate in the safety program. Instructions to put the emergency plan in place are included with each packet and assistance is available from the Dubin Alzheimers Resource Center. The safety program also stresses the importance of having an identification bracelet for individuals with memory loss to wear at all times. Identification bracelets help local law enforcement identify individuals who are separated from their caregivers and are unable to find their way home or even tell someone where they live due to memory impairment. Each bracelet (or necklace) is engraved with the persons first name or nickname, a code number which matches their application number, the words memoryimpaired and the phone number for the Lee County Sheriffs Office. Both the Dubin Alzheimers Resource Center and the Lee County Sheriffs Office maintain records of enrolled persons application numbers and identifying information. Being able to look at a bracelet, make a phone call, and escort the lost person to his/her home reduces the time memoryimpaired persons are away from their homes and saves police departments valuable effort. A brochure with an application to obtain a bracelet is included in each safety program packet. The Alvin A. Dubin Alzheimers Resource Center, a United Way agency, provides a variety of services including support groups, a quarterly newsletter, a lending library of books and resource materials, educational seminars and training programs for professionals as well as family caregivers. The Dubin Alzheimers Resource Centers office is located at 12468 Brantley Commons Court in Fort Myers. For more information about the Safety Program, or to find out more about the services offered by the Dubin Alzheimers Resource Center, call 437-3007.

23B ISLAND SUN MAY 31, 2013 Dr. DaveSuper Kryptoniteby Dr. Dave HepburnDoctors have nightmares. Theyre not the usual nightmares of sitting naked in grade 12 math class being taught by a stegosaurus as your teeth slowly fall out. Nope. We have nightmares about taking out the wrong kidney, taking out night nurses or ordering take out with a side of bacteria gone wild. Fortunately, there are very few stegosauri left in schools. But ladies and gentlemen, start your engines and get out of dodge. There now is a new superbug, a rogue bacteria gone wild. This one isnt just super... it is super super kryptoniteresistant. Welcome to my nightmare bacteria, Alice. The one we didnt ever want to see, the one that NO antibiotic can touch. Up to now, the superbugs you have heard of like MRSA, the NDM-1 plasmid of New Delhi, C. difficile, etc., were not completely 100 percent resistant to every antibiotic. But this new one is and if youre not scared, get scared. Its called CRE and it does CRE stuff but really, there are two things you should know about CRE: 1. If you catch it, you only have a 50 percent chance of surviving. 2. It is here. Why is it here? 1. Antibiotic overuse. This is normally where I tee off and berate you, the patient, for coming to the clinic for antibiotics for a cold or flu or earache. But most of you folks have figured it out. In the past several years, Ive noted fewer requests for antibiotics and fewer people demanding treatment for a cold. There are still a few who do, of course. They apparently dont think they should suffer with a cold while everyone else should. They want the instant magic cure weve been keeping to ourselves, often coming up with brilliant statements like: I simply cant be sick, doctor. I have to go on a trip to Drumheller to see the stegosaurus festival. It starts in my head but it always goes to my chest. Yes, Bloggins, thats what a cold does. But its still just a cold, so get a grippe. Well, my doctor always gives me antibiotics. In the past, weaker doctors may have given antibiotics for ear infections and coughs, but competent doctors do not. 2. As the world shrinks the medical problems expand. In third world countries where antibiotics are plentiful and education is not, antibiotics are being doled out like Kleenex at a Flames game. Compounding this is medical tourism. Folks scamper off to East Sunilolroniastanya for a really cheap tummy tuck or facelift or a tummy lift into a face tuck, when theyre on sale. While on this trip, they pick up a few falafels and a little CRE, bringing both back to North Americastaya. Though they may be asymptomatic they might still be colonized with CRE and falafel crumbs. British Columbia already has special protocols in place to deal with sick patients whove come from places like Greece, the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent. But here is the scary part. There are now actually protocols in place for patients who have been in hospital in... the USA! A couple of hundred hospitals in 41 U.S. states now have confirmed cases of this deadly CRE. The countermeasures include keeping patients isolated/quarantined as CRE is shed in the feces of patients who are infected or carrying the bacteria. Yet another good reason to stay away from hospitals and clinics unless you have to. Apparently, there are sick people there. Can you catch something in the waiting room? Absolutely! If you use doorknobs, touch a chair or run your hands through the hair of the patient sitting beside you, you could catch a nasty bug. I recently had a patient lick the face of another patient sitting in the waiting room! The blockbuster movie Contagion showed the entire world, or at least Toronto, grinding to a halt as an unstoppable microbe destroys the Argonauts, the Blue Jays and most of the Leafs defensemen. Could this actually occur? Possibly. This would mean that the Leafs will never again win Lord Stanleys Cup, prolonging the nightmare of those of us of Leaf Nation. Unless, of course, this year we happen to trade for a stegosaurus. That would be a dream come true. Listen live or call in to Dr Dave on his fun yet informative radio show, Wisequacks, heard each Sunday at 5 p.m. at www.cknw.com. Contact Dr. Dave or read more at www.wisequacks.org. Support Group For Adult Children Of Alzheimers PersonsA support group specifically for adults who have a parent with Alzheimers disease or a related disorder will meet at the Dubin Alzheimers Resource Center, 12468 Brantley Commons Court in Fort Myers. Interested caregivers can attend on Tuesday, June 4 at 6:15 p.m. The focus of this support group meeting is issues, concerns and questions adult children face as they provide care to a parent with memory loss or strive to learn more about Alzheimers disease. The group is open to all interested individuals at no charge. Meetings are held each month on the first Tuesday at 6:15 p.m. The meetings are sponsored by the Dubin Alzheimers Resource Center. The Alvin A. Dubin Alzheimers Resource Center, a United Way partner agency, provides informational, educational and supportive assistance to individuals with Alzheimers disease and related disorders and their caregivers. For more information, call the Dubin Alzheimers Resource Center at 4373007. Got A Problem? Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: Does it matter how big or small our stress is to affect our health?A: Stress comes in all sizes. There is the small stuff, which most of us would attribute to the daily grind, annoyances like losing the car keys. The coffee maker doesnt work properly and the coffee leaks all over the counter. Beefy, the big bull dog, chases the lady walking her two toy poodles. The laundry piles up. Traffic jams make us late for an appointment. Getting stopped for a traffic violation leaves us frazzled. Having an argument with our spouse leads to increased anxiety. And the best thing that happened was losing four quarters in the soda machine... and not getting the soda! Get the picture? Then there are the much bigger stressors that can wreak havoc on our lives and force us into changes perhaps we didnt even see coming: the threat of losing a home due to foreclosure, which is happening tenfold in our country now; a major health issue that will require much medical attention and no health insurance; inability to pay bills; a layoff with no job in sight; divorce; death of a loved one. These kinds of stressors can limit our ability to make rational decisions and lead to acute as well as chronic health problems. Anxiety is so prevalent now in our culture that it manifests itself in many psychological and physical changes. We function on overdrive, and our bodies become overstimulated into a hyper state. Our blood pressure rises, and our heart rate increases. We become adrenaline junkies, needing more adrenaline to keep up the pace. To keep that adrenaline pumping, we can turn on the television with all the cop shows and violence to keep us overstimulated. It has become quite distressing to observe how many people seem to be obsessed with watching violence, suffering and scandals, whether real (there are many) or nightly reality TV, as well as violent movies. According to the Media Awareness Network, media has become more violent, graphic, sexual and sadistic. If we limit our watching of news and TV, that in itself can reduce stress. We want to stay at bay from negativity as much as we can and focus on positive conditions that we want to affect our lives.
