Francis worked very hard on this book, and he did it primarily for his children, said Emilie Alfino. He wanted them to know his story, and Sanibels story. The book is written as told to Emilie Alfino, formerly a reporter for the various Sanibel newspapers and now the manager of the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village. Francis and I spent a lot of time together over the past two and a half years, Alfino said. Honestly, every minute of it was a pleasure. I say now what brother Sam often said of their father Frank: Francis is one of the finest men I have ever known. The format for the June 18 event will be an open house, so people may arrive at any time. Hors doeuvres, wine and refreshments will be served. Parking will be available at the homestead, along with golf carts to assist anyone who needs it. Books will be for sale at the event for $17.95 plus tax, and credit cards will be accepted. Only books purchased that day will be marked Launch Edition. Bailey will not be signing books. Books will be available beginning the following day, June 19, at the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village Gift Shop, The Sanibel Bookshop, The Book Nook, MacIntosh continued on page 2 Francis Bailey, looking out the homestead porch just before SCCF purchased the property Francis Bailey at his desk Art Gallery Opens 60 Feet Below Sea LevelOn May 31, the unveiling of the Mohawk Project was held at Nervous Nellies Waterfront Eatery on Fort Myers Beach. The following morning, the first step of the The Sinking World art project began. At 9:30 a.m., a flotilla of boats carrying 65 divers and 12 unique photographs created by Andreas Franke were deployed on the USS Mohawk Veterans Memorial Reef. The artificial reef program was made possible by Lee County Natural Resources Senior Environmental Specialist Mike Campbell, Joe Weatherby of Ship Wrecker for Reef Makers and artist Andreas Franke. One year after its sinking, the 165foot World War II warship USS Mohawk, now a living reef, is thriving with exotic marine life. On June 1, it was transformed into an underwater art gallery. Celebrated Austrian photographer Franke led a team 28 nautical miles off the coast of Sanibel Island to install 12 images that will remain on display through September 14. Based on his research, Franke envisioned the life of sailors past aboard the Mohawk their daily lives and dreams of home and superimposed images of models in period clothing onto original photography. Each image measures approximately 2.5 by 3.5 feet and is continued on page 24 Local divers assisted artist Andreas Franke, above, with the installationDrummer Follows Beat To Gig At Kennedy Centerby Anne MitchellThis summer promises to be one to remember for music student Paul Gavin.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 7, 20134 Refuge Unveils Welcome ArchwayColorful and wildlife-themed, the new three-dimensional welcome archway unveiled at National Trails Day celebrations on June 1 entices visitors to walk up the entrance ramp to explore the free Ding Darling Education Center. More than one year in the making, the finished product was the result of brainstorming and a partnership between North Carolina wildlife artist David Williams of Wingin It Works, the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge and the Ding Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge (DDWS), which procured a grant for $10,000 from the AWC Family Foundation to help fund the sculpture. Weve been working on this project for a long time, said Refuge Manager Paul Tritaik. We felt we needed something eyecatching to grab the attention for new visitors who were missing the delightful experience our education center affords. Artist Williams explained to the admiring crowd gathered for the 10 a.m. unveiling that he sculpted the archway by hand out of clay to create a form as a mold for the resin archway. He then hand-painted every alligator, roseate spoonbill, osprey, mangrove cuckoo, crab and mangrove root and leaf in realistic detail. The AWC Family Foundation has a real legacy of supporting a number of non-profit organizations here on the islands and around the country, with a strong emphasis in conservation, environmental preservation, and education, said DDWS Executive Director Birgie Vertesch. We are honored the foundation chose to support this important project. To support DDWS and the refuge with a tax-deductible gift, visit www.dingdarlingsociety.org or contact Birgie Vertesch at 292-0566 or director@dingdarlingsociety.org.

5 ISLAND SUN JUNE 7, 2013FISH To Hold Workshop On Womens Safety FISH of Sanibel, Inc., in conjunction with the Lee County Sheriffs Department, will hold a Self-defense Awareness & Familiarization Exchange (SAFE) workshop on June 19 from 10 a.m. 12 p.m. at the Saint Michael & All Angels Episcopal Church Parish Hall.The two-hour educational awareness and crime-victim prevention program encompasses strategies, techniques, and prevention for teenage and adult women that may reduce the risk of exposure to violence. It also introduces the physical aspects of self-defense. Participants must be at least 13 years of age and those between the ages of 13 and 17 must have a parent present during the time of the workshop. Violent crimes are often crimes of opportunity.

The SAFE workshop provides women with solid public safetyawareness information to incorporate into their everyday lives. The program is broken into three parts:1) Introduction to safety 2) Video on self defense 3) Physical self defense techniques This is not a self-defense class. Participants should wear comfortable clothing and closed-toed shoes. The workshop is complimentary to all women who reside or work on the islands. RSVP to Christine or Jessi at 472-4775 by June 18.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 7, 20136 INSIDE CITY HALL City To Consider Reduction In Permit Feesby Anne MitchellThe topic of permit application fees and the high cost took up much of the councils morning on Tuesday. The good news for the public is that permit fees will likely be reduced during the city budget sessions starting next month. But until then, for current and future applicants, council is considering charging the current fees then refunding the difference when the new fees are in place. It was the suggestion of Vice Mayor Doug Congress, who calls it grandfathering, and said, We dont want people not to submit applications, waiting until November. Councilman Marty Harrity said, Clearly we have an issue with fees. In order not to stop progress I would say pay your (fee), apply for your variance and based on the results of our review, have it reduced. Council didnt vote on the measure, deciding to table it until the July 15 meeting to get more information from staff. Highlighting the need for more userfriendly fees were two recent requests for hardship waivers. Jeff Weigel, of the Sanibel Deli, 2330 Palm Ridge Road, was facing $8,409 in fees just to apply for permits related to expanding his carry-out business into an adjacent unit and adding seating for customers. Last month, after much discussion, council reduced the fees to $3,000. Also, MG Whitaker of Fresh Taqueria, 2411 Periwinkle Way, was in May approved a 50 percent waiver of the roughly $2,000 fees for applying for a variation to the sign ordinance. She wants a second sign to direct people to the restaurants parking area, which is separated from the business by another property. But on Tuesday, when the resolution came up for a final decision, Whitaker appealed for a full waiver, saying without a sign, motorists drive to the front of the restaurant, where there is no parking, then have to back out over the bike path and onto Periwinkle Way. Council agreed her property is unique and waived the fee. Whitaker still has to go through the permit process for the sign. Reviewing permit fees is part of the councils efforts to stimulate business and streamline city processes. City Awards Bike Path and Road Project Contractsby Anne MitchellThe Sanibel City Council on Tuesday approved several contracts totaling more than $1.5 million for projects ranging from the ongoing clearing of overgrown vegetation on the Sanibel River to the improvement of the shared use path on the islands east end. The contracts are as follows: $689,678 to CW Roberts Contracting Inc. to widen the shared use path along Periwinkle Way from Lindgren Boulevard to Lighthouse Beach Park; $674,979 to Community Asphalt Corp. for 2013 street resurfacing; Beach park restroom roof replacements for $56,660 to Winfield Contracting, Inc.; Dune walkover replacement project to Bayshore Construction, Inc. for $60,913; and 2013 Sanibel River clearing project, to Canoe Adventures, Inc. for $65,000. This phase of the project, to keep the river navigable, will be from Tarpon Bay Road to Rue Belle Mer. Verizon Cell Phone Tower Still In Worksby Anne MitchellIf youre wondering whether Verizon will ever construct the promised cell phone tower off Donax Street, be assured that the project is still in the works. The much-needed boost to Sanibels east end wireless reception will proceed, said City Attorney Ken Cuyler. The application is in city hands and under review, he said, and they should complete the application by the extended deadline of June 31. It appears they are serious and do want to get this done, Cuyler added. The project may have taken longer than usual because the city council required that Verizon build the 149-foot tower to resemble a flag pole. But the problem was that flags and their rigging are noisy and there are nearby residents. Council asked Verizon to come up with an internal lanyard system. Verizon said it would be a challenge because it had never built anything like it before. It was to have been complete early this year. There will be room on the tower for two more carriers, according to the initial plans.

Kids can find the answers to these and more scavenger hunt-style questions in the Ding Darling Education Center to complete the summers new Jr. Refuge Manager Badge program. Kids can ask for the new Jr. Refuge Manager worksheet from staff at the Education Center front desk, said education specialist Ranger Becky Wolff, whose intern team designed the new Q&A sheet. Typically, we do the Jr. Refuge Manager program with questions to answer out on Wildlife Drive. Because the drive is closed for resurfacing, we came up with this new one, which we will probably keep even after the drive reopens in October. With Wildlife Drive closed, refuge rangers and staff from Tarpon Bay Explorers, the refuges official recreation concession, have designed a creative calendar of hikes, walks, tram tours, bike tours, and classroom programs. For a complete schedule, visit www.dingdarlingsociety.org. Note that some tours require advance reservations.

They are among the many natural beneficiaries of an open Blind Pass. I believe they lay and fertilize their eggs on the sandy shores. Their eggs are an excellent source of nutrition for migrating species such as red knots and other peeps. The crabs have arrived each morning this past week, starting with the waxing stages through the full moon and continue spawning as the full moon wanes. They congregate in the dozens adjacent to our Captiva dock on Blind Pass each morning, as this is a small beach area; larger beach areas have larger numbers in the hundreds. I notice them in good numbers just after sunrise on the sandy shore, but think they are coordinating with the high tide. I find them in several inches of shallow water. This area was previously quite rocky before Blind Pass was opened and I never notice them spawning during those periods. They seem to retreat into deeper water when the sun is high and as the tide abates. This photo of live horseshoe crabs spawning was taken on May 31 at 7:30 a.m. Our email address is press@islandsunnews.com

As one of the most-visited, high-profile refuges of the National Refuge System, Ding Darling draws students and recent graduates from around the country to vie for internship positions in biology, public use, and environmental education. The interns seek opportunities to apply their knowledge in the real world and help shape them as future conservation stewards. Its a win-win situation for both the interns and the refuge, officials say. Interns provide the help needed in biological research and educational programs. Tthey also bring a young vision and outlook, contributing fresh new ideas that result in a dynamic momentum. Over the years, Ding Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge (DDWS) has provided the funds to help with the costs of intern stipends and housing. Affectionately called the gated community, intern housing lies within refuge grounds and consists of a montage of trailers acquired from various sources. Most were donated; some were purchased from FEMA after Hurricane Charley. Realizing the need for more housing to replace deteriorated units, refuge volunteer Tim Gardner, prior to his death in November 2012, approached the Lee County Mosquito Control District about modular units they had used as offices before constructing a new building. He asked if they would be willing to donate a unit for student housing at Ding. The answer was a resounding yes. The Lee County School District helped develop a site plan and organize the transport and set up at the refuge, which DDWS funded. The offices have now become comfortable new intern dorms with room to sleep four interns. This project was made possible by many different folks, said Refuge Manager Paul Tritaik at opening ceremonies for the housing unit on May 23. But first I want to recognize Tim Gardner. If it hadnt been for Tim, we wouldnt be here right now. The intern program is a strategic investment in our young adults and this program is specifically targeted toward students who plan a career path in conservation and inspire others to protect our wild places around the world, May 23 marked the housewarming reception for a new four-bedroom intern housing unit at the refuge. Representatives from the Lee County Mosquito Control District, DDWS and the refuge gathered to celebrate

Matt MitchellConditions have slowly returned to normal after what was a funky weather week on the water, to say the least. Strong easterly winds and often heavy rain that would pop up at just about any time made fishing tougher than it has been in previous weeks. Tarpon fishing came to an all but complete halt as the stirred up, rough water made the fish just about impossible to locate and catch. By late in the week, as the winds finally laid back down and our water cleared back up, tarpon started to reappear in their usual places both in the bay and out along the beaches. By the weekend, good numbers of tarpon were located again in and around Captiva Pass and along the southern beaches of Cayo Costa. Pitching crabs and threadfins to these fast moving fish resulted in very few hook-ups though. These gulfside fish are daisy-chaining and seem to have other relationship issues on their mind and did not seem interested in eating anything I had to offer. Even picture perfect pitch shots to these rolling fish did not result in hook-up. Fishing my confidence spots in the sound with a spread of live and cut baits was a more productive method for me even though very few fish were sighted. After being on a roll of tarpon fishing charters this season, my 21st trip in a row with at least one hook-up came to an end this week. Mother Nature simply got the better of me one day mid-week and gave me the first zero slap in the face. On my tarpon trip this weekend, after no action most of the morning even though we located lots of fish, we ended up going one for one with a tarpon caught while soaking a cut bait in the southern sound. Pass fishing was a good option most days this week even during windy conditions. Snook action, if you were there at the right time, was the best I have seen for a long time. One morning trip this week, while fishing with Gillie Russell and his granddaughters from Lake Placid, we caught and released seven snook over 30 inches within a 45-minute period, then as fast as it had started, it ended. Live shiners fished on 1/2 oz. jig heads to keep them close to the bottom was the rig of choice in the pass during the fast moving outgoing tide. After struggling to catch a few trout and jacks for most of the morning trip, it was great to hit pay dirt and finish up on a wide open snook bite. Redfish action was hit and miss for me this week mostly because of the far from perfect tides for targeting them. Tides will get a whole lot better this week for you redfish anglers to target under the trees during the good morning and daytime highs. After the previous week of monster high tides and catching lots of over-theslot redfish, Im excited to get it going again. There was one bonus while targeting deeper mangrove shorelines for reds and snook without much luck; we did catch a few of the largest mangrove snapper I have seen since last fall. Our big one measured almost 17 inches. The more time you spend on the water, the more you learn you simply cannot beat Mother Nature. After a nasty weather week, which offered anglers very few options, things are looking a whole lot better.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. Sisters Hannah and Jameson Waller from Lake Placid caught 30-inch plus snook while fishing with Capt. Matt Mitchell this week. Pictured is Jameson Waller.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 7, 201318 Snowy Plover Presentation At CROWSnowy plover breeding season is well under way on Sanibel Island. Take a walk on the beach, and you may be lucky enough to see tiny chicks running around, looking for food. Like most shorebirds, snowy plovers nest right on the beach and are potential prey for a host of predators. Their main defense is camouflage, and they blend so well with the color of Sanibels sand its almost impossible to see them unless theyre moving. Because snowy plovers have declined in numbers over the years, theyre listed as threatened by the State of Florida. In 2002, the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) initiated their Snowy Plover Project, along with the JN Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge and the City of Sanibel, to study and protect these vulnerable ground nesters. On Monday, June 10 at 11 a.m., Joel Caouette, SCCFs shorebird monitoring coordinator, will partner with Claudia Burns, longtime Snowy Plover Project volunteer, to present Secret Lives of Snowy Plovers at the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW). The presentation will feature photos of these cryptic birds along with insights into their behavior, which is often completely different than that of birds who nest in trees. This is a rare opportunity to learn about a threatened species that depends on Sanibels beach for its continued survival, as well as to tour CROWs Healing Winds Visitor Education Center and learn more about their efforts to save wildlife through compassion, care and education. CROW is located at 3883 SanibelCaptiva Road, across from The Sanibel School. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for teens, and free for members and children 12 and under.

19 ISLAND SUN JUNE 7, 2013 CROW Case Of The Week: Gopher Tortoise Carrying 11 Eggsby Patricia MolloyShe arrived with 11 eggs inside, Dr. Helen Ingraham said. A gopher tortoise (Gopherus polyphemus) was admitted to the wildlife clinic several weeks ago. While it was immediately apparent from the shell facture that she had been hit by a car, it wasnt until radiographs were taken to look for spinal damage that Dr. Heather Barron discovered she was pregnant. It is a common sight for drivers in Southwest Florida to see a gopher tortoise slowly, but determinedly, crossing a road. Be patient. These gentle terrestrial beings have survived on this planet for 60 million years; a few minutes of your time pales in comparison. If you feel compelled to accelerate its journey and protect it from less attentive drivers, please relocate it in the direction it is traveling. If you return a tortoise to its point of entry, it will simply try to cross again once you have driven on your merry way. The staff and students quickly created a sandbox for her in hopes that she would lay and bury her eggs in the sand. Yesterday, I could feel one them. I tried to milk it out, but I couldnt. All of a sudden she let the egg go on her own. She didnt lay any more eggs last night, but was on her pile of sand when I checked on her this morning. Her depression fracture looks good and we started her on Oxytocin again to hopefully stimulate her to lay the rest, added Dr. Helen. Oxytocin is a synthetic form of a natural hormone often used to strengthen the power of contractions to increase the speed of childbirth. Unfortunately, her options are looking more and more like surgery, Dr. Heather noted solemnly after two weeks of critical care at the wildlife clinic. She needs to have the eggs removed and it has come to the point where they are becoming a surgical concern. I am only considering the surgery because she is beginning to use her hind legs again, added Dr. Heather. It takes approximately four months for a shell fracture to heal and an additional six to 12 months for full recovery. Please sponsor this gopher tortoise on her long road to recovery by going to CROWs website and referring to patient #1310. Your donation could help to save not only her life, but those of her little hatchlings. CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Inc.) is a non-profit wildlife hospital providing veterinary care for native and migratory wildlife from our local area. The hospital accepts patients seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mail donations to PO Box 150, Sanibel, FL 33957. Call 472-3644 or visit: www.crowclinic.org.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 7, 201320 Birds Eye ViewThey Look At You With One Eye Then The Other!by Mark Bird WestallI will tell the folks who read this column the same thing I tell people that go on my canoe trips; if you spend enough time around me, you will figure it out that you have to take a lot of what I say with a grain of salt. Some of my ideas are based on really smart people like Charles Darwin, Richard Dawkins and E. O. Wilson, but a lot of my ideas are mostly my attempt at figuring out how the natural world works.So, have you ever noticed that many species of birds with eyes positioned on the sides of their heads will look at you with one eye, then turn their head and look at you with the other eye? Well, I believe that behavior allows the bird to perceive the world around them in a three-dimensional manner. It makes sense that many species of birds that have to worry about being attacked from behind have evolved sensors (eyes) that can more efficiently recognize movement from the rear quadrant. Having the ability to quickly realize that a bald eagle or peregrine falcon is coming up behind you would greatly enhance your ability to pass on your genes. But like many things in life, there is no such thing as a free lunch. For every new beneficial strategy that evolves, quite often something else must be sacrificed. Once the bird has been warned that danger is in the area, it would then be nice to be able to tell how that danger is positioned in relation to the observing bird; is the danger approaching the bird or just sitting in a tree. If it is approaching, is it moving quickly or only gently flying along? That information is difficult to ascertain without stereoscopic vision and that type of vision is difficult to accomplish with eyes on the side of the head. Thats why predators (like humans) usually have eyes facing forward. Over the years, I have noticed that many birds with eyes on the side of their heads (like the white ibis) will notice that my canoe is approaching and they will stop feeding for a second, raise their head up and look at us with one eye, then turn their head and look at us with the other eye. What I think is happening is that each eye is sending information about the canoe to the brain from a slightly different position and a slightly different time period and then that combined data is pieced together in the brain so that the bird is able to perceive the canoe three dimensionally. I dont know if the bird actually sees the canoe in the same way that predators (like us) see things because we are sending the information from each eye to the brain simultaneously, but I believe the ibis brain is able to piece together the separate information it receives from each eye and then somehow puts that information together in such a way so that it can perceive the world three-dimensionally. Where I came up with this theory actually happened at an automobile race track many years ago. I was standing on some bleachers watching one of my favorite drivers when his car went off the track about 500 yards away from where I was standing. I immediately raised my binoculars to get a better view and make sure he was able to get out of the car safely. After I saw him leave the car, I lowered my binoculars and realized that about halfway between my position and the wrecked car, a utility pole was blocking my view of the car. I raised my binoculars back up and I could, once again, see the car, but the pole was now not in view. I dropped the binoculars again... and there was the pole blocking my view of the car. So, I tried an experiment. I closed one eye and looked through the binoculars. There was the car, but I could also see the pole; it was blurry, but I could see it. I changed the eye that was looking through the binoculars and, again, I could see the car and the pole; the pole was blurry, but I could see it. I opened both eyes and the pole completely disappeared! What I think was happening was that when using the binoculars, each individual eye was sending information to the brain that the utility pole was there, but my brain somehow established that the pole was not the object I was focusing on, so it saw the information about the blurry pole as unnecessary and simply weeded that information from my perception of what I was seeing.And I went, Cool! I realized my brain was able to pick and choose what data was pertinent to my sense of reality and what data was deemed unnecessary. Thats when I decided that if my brain could gather information and put it together in such a way that I had a better understanding of the environment around me, maybe the ibis brain had the ability to gather information and put it together in such a way that increased the birds chances of survival. Of course, there is another possible reason why the ibis looks at us with one eye and then turns its head and looks at us with the other. I like to joke that the white ibis is either the most brave or most stupid bird of the mudflats. When it looks at us and moves its head from one side to the other, you can almost see the little gears working inside its head as it stupidly asks, Well, I dont know. Do you think theyre dangerous?Like I said, maybe my idea is totally off the wall and the ibis just isnt the sharpest tool in the shed, but maybe, looking at us with both eyes helps the bird see the world around it more clearly.

Brieanna Coffman, Jessica DeGraw, Donna Yetsko and Capt. Steve Yetsko made up the Tarpon Bay Fish-n-Chics. Team Tarpon Bay Fishaholics was comprised of Andrew Pollack, David Lombardi, Steve Maddix and Dave Johns. This tournament was hosted by the Ding Darling Wildlife SocietyFriends of the Refuge and Doc Fords Rum Bar & Grille, with the focus on catch, release, care. An honor system with photos taken on-board was used as opposed to the traditional harmful weigh-in method. Anglers had the opportunity to gain extra points by executing a DNA scrub on their catches. The Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge benefited from the tournament, with all proceeds directly profiting wildlife conservation. I am very grateful to Tarpon Bay for sponsoring us in this tournament said Jessica DeGraw. I feel honored to be part of such a wonderful cause. The tournament was followed by the Silver King for Ding after-party. The public was also invited to this event that included the awards ceremony, dinner and a silent auction. Turnout for this event and festivities was outstanding. It is great to see folks come together for a common cause, to support wildlife conservation added Donna Yetsko. Tarpon Bay Explorers is the concessionaire for the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, operating in partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 7, 201322 Plant SmartLandscape Palette: A Splash Of Redby Gerri ReavesWant to brighten up your landscape with a touch of vivid red? You neednt rely on disposable species like geranium or impatiens. Here are three low-maintenance wildlife-friendly choices that wont require replanting anytime soon, thus saving you time and money. And they will be prettier long after those water-guzzling impatiens are leggy and wilted. Nothing could be easier to grow than the tropical sage (Salvia coccinea), a wildflower in the mint family. Give it sun and space and it just keeps on blooming throughout the year and attracting butterflies and hummingbirds. Dried tubular flowers top the stalks that reach up to two feet high. Once spent, the seeds will scatter and quickly start new plants, or you can gather the seeds, distribute them or start container plants. In recent years, firebush (Hamelia patens) has become a popular landscape choice. Thats good news, since those red-orange tubular flowers attract butterflies and the birds eat the red to purpleblack berries. It works as a hedge, small tree, or an unpruned specimen in a natural garden. It comes in a dwarf variety, too, and is easily propagated with seeds or cuttings. In the wild, rouge plant ( Rivina humilis) reaches six feet tall or more. A member of the pokeweed family, it grows best in a natural garden where its not subjected to repeated shearing. continued on page 23 Firebush Rouge plant Tropical sage 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!

The blooms are followed by shiny red berries that have been used in dye and rouge production, thus the plants common name. The flowers attract butterflies and the fruit feeds the birds. It adapts to various light conditions, but prefers a moist site. Seedlings often sprout near the parent plant, but it can be propagated with seeds or cuttings, too. Plant Smart explores sustainable gardening practices that will help you create an environmentally responsible, low-maintenance South Florida landscape.

Southwest Florida Events opened its online registration May 1 and the rate of registration is breaking past records. The category for the youngest athletes ages 6 to 9 is full and has a wait list. The next childrens category of ages 10 to 13 is filling up quickly. The sprint triathlon weekend, which will be held September 14 and 15, is a family fun fitness weekend held at South Seas Island Resort on Captiva. The first day includes children fun races: the 6to 9-year-olds complete in a 100-yard swim, 1.5-mile bike and 0.5-mile run, while the age 10 to 13 racers face a 200-yard swim, three-mile bike and a one-mile run. On Sunday morning, adults will swim 0.25 miles in the gulf, bike 10 miles (on closed island roads) and run 3.1 miles along the gulf and bay on the resort golf course. For the first time, elite amateur participants are included in the adult event, going off in the first wave. With a 750 participant limit, the adult categories are also filling up quickly. The race has grown in popularity, and is considered one of the most scenic triathlons in the country, said Kate Gooderham, one of the race organizers. We are excited by the enthusiasm for the triathlon, she said. Its a great event for a great cause.

2B ISLAND SUN JUNE 7, 2013 Refuge Welcomes Boost In Summer StaffingWith federal budgets currently freezing refuge hiring, JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge is happy to welcome two temporary staffers made available through government programs. Intern Amber Walden joined the refuge staff on May 20 as part of the Career Development Intern Program (CDIP), a partnership between the U. S. Fish & Wildlife Service and Student Conservation Association. Walden began her orientation at the Refuge along with 26 other students in the program. Originally from Tallahassee, Florida, she now studies history with a minor in Russian at Howard University in Washington, D.C. I first learned about CDIP through an email from my school, she explained. I liked what I read about the program, and I was very happy to be accepted. I really like seeing how excited people get when they find out more about the nature that they see every day. They are amazed that all of these processes carry on with or without human interference. Walden, who will stay at the refuge until August, helps with the education programs that run through the summer. Last years STAR (Summer Teachers Assisting Refuges) teacher, Jillian Meek, a Helping/Field Trip Teacher in the Environmental Education Department for Lee County School District, returns this summer also to assist with refuge environmental education while schools out. The STAR position at Ding Darling is made possible by a grant from the LAT Foundation to Ding Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge (DDWS).

3B ISLAND SUN JUNE 7, 2013 Dear community partners, guests and residents: Like many businesses along the beaches of our beautiful Sanibel and Captiva Islands, fulfilling dream vacations is part of what we do every day at Royal Shell Vacations. And when special requests come our way, we always do our best to provide the most unique vacation experience possible, as do many of our valued community and business partners. For more than six years, Royal Shell Vacations has been working in partnership with local businesses to make homes available to Make-A-Wish Foundation and Dream Foundation families, helping to fulfill the dream vacations of children and families coping with life-threatening illnesses. Recently, we were approached by the Dream Foundation with the opportunity to help grant the wish of a man suffering from a life-limiting illness: he wanted to get to the beach. A national wish-granting organization, the Dream Foundation helps fulfill the dreams of adults given a life-expectancy of a year or less. Royal Shell Vacations is happy to accommodate these requests and works hard to put together stays that create joyous memories for these families. Royal Shell Vacations was able to provide a dream vacation home for the family of six during their stay in early May. And by partnering with other local businesses, we were able to make this a full and memorable experience for them. Many local business owners quickly jumped in to help make the familys vacation stay as comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable as possible. Baileys General Store delivered prepared meals and a nosh tray for their first nights stay, as well as a sack lunch for a boat ride. Billys Rentals provided a beach wheel chair, Randy at Sanibel Rentals donated a shower seat, YOLO Watersports provided use of a golf cart during their stay and Port Sanibel Marina provided the family with four kayaks and arranged a boat ride for a day. Tween Waters Inn pampered family members with massages, and a manicure and pedicure for the patient. Creating an unforgettable family dinner, chef Leslie Adams prepared a home-cooked meal for the family at the home. In addition to these businesses mentioned above, other local businesses have also partnered with us over the years to provide services and products for MakeA-Wish and Dream Foundation families. These businesses include: Captiva Cruises Lazy Flamingo Tarpon Bay Explorers Jungle Golf Denise McKee L3 Beach Photography Jerrys Foods Adventures In Paradise Captain Joey Burnsed Stilwell Enterprises Island Cinema Cheeburger Cheeburger Timbers Restaurant The Mucky Duck Id like to personally thank all of these area businesses for sharing your services and time as well as your kindness and compassion.

Westall, Burns Tell The Story Of Ospreys At CROWby Jeff LysiakOne of the most popular bird species in Southwest Florida is the osprey, known for its keen fishing skills, massive nests found in a variety of locations and rather unusual demeanor and articulate conduct. Last Friday, two of the most knowledgeable experts in the behaviors of ospreys Mark Bird Westall and Clauda Burns delivered a presentation entitled The Story Of Ospreys at the CROW Healing Winds Visitor Education Center. Residents of and visitors to Southwest Florida seem to find ospreys extremely entertaining. Unlike other birds, ospreys nest in the open on man-made platforms, in snags, on top of channel markers, in tall trees and on chimneys so its easy to observe their behavior. Because ospreys are an indicator species for the health of local waters, Westall founded The International Osprey Foundation (TIOF) in 1979 to monitor the breeding success of these raptors. Ive been a volunteer with TIOF for over 20 years because, (A) ospreys are fascinating birds, and (B) they nest right out in the open, where you can see everything they do, Burns told the crowd of approximately 20 people gathered for the 60-minute presentation. According to Burns, the bald eagle is the number one threat to the osprey. In fact, ospreys are often mistaken for eagles. However, these species can be identified by several clear indicators: eagles heads are all white, while an osprey has dark colored feathers across the head. A mature eagle is typically much larger than an osprey. Also, the feathers of an osprey seen from below are mostly white, while an eagles feathers are primarily dark brown. There is also a simple way to tell the difference between a male and female osprey: a male will have a pure white chest while a female will have some colored banding across her chest. Ospreys are found on every continent, except Antarctica, and will usually pair (mate) for a lifetime, Westall noted. Nests are built cooperatively, with the males bringing in sticks and lining materials and females Mark Bird Westall talks about distinguishing characteristics of male and female ospreys during the May 31 presentation at CROW photos by Jeff Lysiak A closeup image of an osprey prior to its release in the wild on Captiva in 2012 Longtime CROW volunteer Claudia Burns narrates The Story Of Ospreys


5B ISLAND SUN JUNE 7, 2013selecting the nest location and arranging the material inside the nest. The highlight of the program was Westalls ability to mimic several osprey sounds, including the begging call/anxious call, the warning call and the courtship call. Westall shared a story about driving along SanibelCaptiva Road one morning, and hearing a female osprey sound the warning call. He pulled his car over to the side of the road, only to find that a photographer had ridden his bicycle to the bottom of an osprey platform and was taking pictures of the mother as she flew in towards the nest to feed her young. However, she would not land because she was interrupted by an intruder: the photographer. How did you know I was back in here? the photographer asked Westall. I thought I had my bicycle hidden pretty good. The osprey told me you were here, said Westall, who convinced the photographer to abandon his subject immediately so that the mother could feed her young. Generally, ospreys lay three eggs, which incubate for four to five weeks. Young chicks grow and look very much like adult ospreys, except that they will still have white tips on the ends of their feathers and their eye color will remain brownish. As adults, their eyes will turn bright yellow. In addition to bald eagles, natural predators of ospreys include raccoons, fish crows and the great horned owl. Westall told the crowd that he was once asked which species on the island the osprey or the great horned owl should be spared? We have over 100 osprey nests on Sanibel and only a few great horned owl nests, added Westall. Death is a part of the natural world. Its something that you dont want to see sometimes, but its a lesson that adults should be teaching their children that its OK. To learn more about CROW, visit www.crowclinic.org.

6B ISLAND SUN JUNE 7, 2013 Historic Downtown Fort Myers, Then And Now: Historic Graduationby Gerri Reaves, PhDAs news of graduation ceremonies fills the news, it is fitting to remember a graduation that made history in Southwest Florida. The Merrie Maid pictured on the far right in the historic photo is Mary Hart Stebbins Philips, the first woman from Lee County to graduate from college. Mary hailed from true pioneer roots. Born in 1887, she was the daughter of Charles Hyde and Ida Blount Stebbins. Her father was one of the 45 fathers of Fort Myers who signed the document to incorporate the town in 1885. He died the year Mary was born, succumbing at last to illness related to a gunshot wound to his lung, which he suffered while fighting in the Battle of Fort Myers during the Civil War. He was the first person buried in the Fort Myers Cemetery. Marys mother was a member of one of the towns earliest families. Her father, Jehu J. Blount, had settled in Fort Myers in 1873, worked with his brother-in-law Capt. Francis A. Hendry in the cattle business, and later established one of the towns first general stores. While Mary was still a small child, her mother married John C.

Her uncle made it possible for study at the Boston Conservatory of Music, English says. That musical talent led Mary to unconventional adventures for a young lady of more than a century ago. She and three friends formed the Merrie Maids and toured the United States performing plays and musicales. Eventually settling down in Fort Myers, she married Prof. Fred Philips in 1922. He was an accomplished musician who came to town to join the high school faculty. Mary was active in the local musical community and was the choir director for the First Methodist Church. She died in 1964. Visit the Southwest Florida Museum of History, where you can see another photo of Lee Countys first woman college graduate and enjoy exhibitions chronicling local history.

Sanibel School Receives DonationThe Charitable Foundation of the Islands made a $5,000 donation to The Sanibel School to provide funding for enhancements to the curriculum and programs that will directly impact student achievement while helping to assure the schools status as a National Blue Ribbon School. The check was presented to Principal Barbara Von Harten by Al Hanser, Chairman of the Charitable Foundation of the Islands. Specifically, the monies will be used to purchase Accelerated Reader books for kindergarten students, to provide academic enrichment software as well as educational field trips and programs provided by FGCUs Kleist Health Education Center to include topics such as Bullying, Anatomy, and Health and Nutrition. Funding for these items is not available from the school district. Providing these enriching programs for the children at The Sanibel School helps to ensure the success of each child, while maintaining the schools status as the top performing K-8 school in the State of Florida.

Fonts designed for readability make it easier to distinguish one character from another. In addition to size, fonts are often sans serif, without short strokes on the ends of characters; have even spacing between letters and circular openings on letters such as b and g; and use larger punctuation marks. For the past few years, the library has been undergoing a major updating of its large print collection to help serve library users. Large print is very popular with library patrons, according to Ham. We get many requests for bestsellers and popular authors in large print size, and our goal is to accommodate the reading needs of our library users.continued on page 15B Volunteers David Fountain and Ann Tennery help Technical Services Head Sandy Ham put out new large print books at the Sanibel Public Library

Miami Begins Defense Of NBA Title After Crushing The Pacers In Game Seven Of Eastern Conference Finalsby Ed FrankThey came home and conquered and, as a result, the Miami Heat advanced to the NBA Finals for the third consecutive year, where they are favored to win their second straight title. Monday nights Game 7 showdown against the Indiana Pacers in Miami was really no showdown at all, with a total domination in every aspect of the game as the star-studded Heat crushed the Pacers 99-76 in the Eastern Conference Finals. LeBron James showed the world why he is the best basketball player in the world and likely will lead Miami to back-to-back titles as they take on the San Antonia Spurs in the NBA Finals that start tonight, Thursday, in Miami. Some say that LeBrons inspirational pre-game talk to his team propelled his team to victory. But speech or not, his on-court performance Monday night when he scored 32 points and grabbed eight rebounds was the real Miami inspiration. It was the second straight year that Indiana fell to the Heat in the Eastern Conference finale. Miami is seeking their third NBA title and San Antonio their fifth. The Spurs are a perfect five-for-five in the NBA Finals. But LeBron has an added incentive to break that string as his first trip to the NBA Finals occurred as a member of the Cleveland Cavilers in 2007, when the Spurs crushed his team in four straight games. Getting back to Mondays lop-sided win over Indiana; we shouldnt feel too sorry for the Pacers, as this team is a far different team from the one that wore Pacers uniforms in November 2004, in the Malice in the Palace the most infamous brawl in NBA history. The Pacers suffered from that awful incident for years both on and off the court as attendance dwindled and reports surfaced that ownership wanted to move the team out of Indianapolis. But the 2012-13 Pacer team represents a good bunch of guys, respectful, approachable and community-minded. Hole-In-OneSkipp Tutor aced #16 at Sanibel Island Golf Club this past week.

Miracle Continue To Roll Atop Florida State League With a blistering 40-15 (.727) season record, the Fort Myers Miracle baseball team has soared to a 9 1/2 game lead in the South Division of the Florida State League, the best record by far in the entire league. As the week began, the Miracle had won eight of their last 10 games and all but clinched the South Division title for the seasons first half. While this teams roster is loaded with batting, pitching and defensive talent, much credit must be given to first-year Miracle manager Doug Mientkiewicz and his staff who have guided the team. Miracle pitchers E. J. Baxendale (7-0, 1.10 ERA) and Taylor Rogers (5-1, 1.35 ERA) have posted the best records in the league while third baseman Miquel Sano, batting .337, and outfielder Eddie Rosario, hitting .344, are among the top sluggers in the FSL. The Miracle are home tomorrow, Saturday, for a 6:05 p.m. game against Brevard County before departing on a road trip prior to next weekends All-Star Game in Dunedin.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 7, 201316B From page 1BHurricane Seminar Gerald Campbell, Lee County Emergency Operations Center planning chief Debbie Quimby, Lee County coordinator for special needs programs Tim Barrett, Sanibel Fire & Rescue District Harold Law, City of Sanibel building official According to Roberts, meteorologists have forecast 13 named storms for the season which runs from June 1 through November 30 including nine hurricanes, four of which are expected to be intense hurricanes. By way of comparison, last year there were 19 named storms, 10 of which were hurricanes, of which only two were intense. In an average year, there are 11 named storms, six hurricanes and two intense hurricanes. Water temperatures have to be above 80 degrees in order for you to get tropical storm activity. Thats just physics, Roberts told the crowd. So, does anybody know what the temperature of the gulf is today? The answer was 82 degrees. Roberts also suggested that, statistically, there is only a four percent chance each year of a hurricane hitting Sanibel and a 17 percent chance of a tropical storm coming to the island. However, despite the odds, people should always be prepared for either one. We may not have a hurricane this year, or next year, or in the next 10 years but we will have a hurricane season from June 1 to November 30 every single year, Roberts added. And we have to prepare for them every single year. Campbell discussed the dangers associated with wind, water (rain and storm surge) as well as making emergency evacuation plans. Because both Sanibel and Captiva are in Zone A, they are likely to be among the first areas called upon to be evacuated. Please, if you remember one thing from today, its that when we issue an emergency evacuation order, you leave that evacuation zone, said Campbell. Because if you dont, youre putting your life at risk. Lee County Emergency Management offers many valuable resources online at www.LeeEOC.com, including links to public shelters, evacuation routes, emergency supply checklists, hurricane preparation guides as well as downloadable iPhone and Android apps. Quimby shared details on how people can sign up to be included in Lee Countys program for special needs services in case of an emergency or mandatory evacuation. Barrett talked about the fire departments role before, during and after a hurricane, which is primarily as a search-and-rescue team. Always have a Plan A and a Plan B, said Barrett. If youre asked to leave the island, take that order very seriously. Finally, Law discussed flood insurance regulation and wind mitigation for residents of Sanibel. Following a weatherrelated event, the city will send out a Structural Safety Inspection (SSI) team to check each property on the island, making sure that every building is structurally sound for occupancy. Seminar attendees were also invited to apply for their City of Sanibel Hurricane Hangtags. The hangtags issued in 2012 are again valid for this season; residential hangtags are orange and commercial hangtags are blue. To apply for a new one, go to www.mysanibel.com or stop by Sanibel City Hall, 900 Dunlop Road, and fill out a form at the police department. 1863 Civil War Stamps Issued The U.S. Postal Service has issued a Civil War: 1863 Forever postal stamp. It was introduced on May 23 in Vicksburg, Mississippi at the Vicksburg National Military Park, and at the Gettysburg National Military Park in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The Forever stamps are on sale nationwide at the 46-cent rate. The commemorative se-tenant stamp pair (two designs) is available in a pressure-sensitive adhesive souvenir sheet of 12 stamps at $5.52. Almost 11 million stamps have been printed. The Civil War (1861 to 1865), the most profound conflict in American history, claimed the lives of more than 620,000 soldiers and brought vast changes to the country. In 2013, the Postal Service continues its commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the war by issuing this souvenir sheet of The Civil War: 1863 (Forever) stamps featuring two stamp designs. One stamp depicts the Battle of Gettysburg, the largest battle of the war, while the other depicts the Battle of Vicksburg, a complex Union campaign to gain control of the Mississippi River. Art director Phil Jordan created the stamps using iconic images of the battles. The Battle of Gettysburg stamp is a reproduction of an 1887 chromolithograph by Thure de Thulstrup (18481930), a Swedish-born artist who became an illustrator for Harpers Weekly after the Civil War. The Battle of Vicksburg stamp is a reproduction of an 1863 lithograph by Currier & Ives titled Admiral Porters Fleet Running the Rebel Blockade of the Mississippi at Vicksburg, April 16th, 1863. The souvenir sheet includes comments on the war by Abraham Lincoln, Clara Barton, Rufus R. Dawes (a Union soldier) and William Tunnard (a Confederate soldier). It also includes some of the lyrics of Lorena, a popular Civil War song by Henry D. L. Webster and Joseph P. Webster. The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.

A Different Idea In Coolingby Bryan HayesOne of the new systems being promoted these days is known as a dual stage comfort system. It truly is the luxury model of home comfort systems. How this system differs from others is the fact that it is two air conditioning systems in one. The outside unit has two compressors. What that means is an increased comfort level by providing exaggerated dehumidification and more flexibility in comfort performance. The system has two different compressors, one of the compressors has a 70 percent capacity of rated size, the other has 100 percent capacity of rated size. They never run at the same time. This means that if we have a system that is designed to remove 36,000 btus and the system is running in the 70 percent mode, we have a removal capacity of 24,200 btus. And if running in the 100 percent mode, you will get 36,000 btu capacity. You may ask, Why in the world would you want your system to run at anything but 100 percent all the time? Remember that an air conditioning system has two major functions; it removes heat but also removes humidity. This is achieved through air exchanges; the number of times per hour all the air in your home goes through the system. Each time the air passes through it is cooled and dehumidified a little more. If there isnt that much heat, say in the morning, but the humidity has built up overnight, a regular system running at 100 percent will not give the system the opportunity to achieve enough air exchanges and the temperature may be where it is supposed to be but the humidity could still be high. So what do you do? You go and turn the temperature down a little more. There also is an energy cost savings by running your system at 70 percent vs. 100 percent. Not to mention, it is quieter. So how often on average does it run at 70 percent of the rated speed? The answer may surprise you. The system runs in the 70 percent mode on average 70 to 80 percent of the time, with the 100 percent mode only running the balance of the time. Bryan Hayes is a Sanibel air conditioning contractor.

17B ISLAND SUN JUNE 7, 2013 Estate planning has entered a new era. We now have an estate tax exemption in excess of $5 million. We have portability of that exemption between spouses, meaning that if the spouse who dies first hasnt done proper planning to segregate assets to use his or her estate tax exemption, then post-mortem planning is available to transfer the unused exemption to the surviving spouse. When you couple these changes with the fact that tax deferred accounts such as IRAs and 401(k)s now make up a significant portion of retirees net worth, what you end up with is what should be a different approach to estate planning. What do I mean by this? The traditional estate plan where one divided assets between husband and wife to use up their respective exemptions, and create testamentary credit shelter and marital trusts for the surviving spouse will likely become less common. This assumes, of course, that current estate tax law is not scaled back as has been proposed. What will become more important is income tax planning and asset protection planning for the surviving spouse, children and grandchildren. Leaving IRAs and 401(k)s to loved ones is a bit trickier than one might imagine. Remember that when you contributed amounts to your IRA and 401(k) accounts you received an income tax deduction. The account also grows tax deferred. When you withdraw money from the account, however, it is taxed as ordinary income to you. The same holds true for your beneficiaries. And heres the rub: when you die and leave your IRA account and 401(k) account to non-spouse beneficiaries, they must begin taking Minimum Required Distributions (MRDs) regardless of their age. If you happen to have named a minor as a beneficiary to an IRA or 401(k) account, then the minor doesnt have legal authority to withdraw amounts, so a legal court appointed guardianship must be established. This can be very time consuming and expensive. Further, the IRA and 401(k) accounts inherited by your beneficiaries are generally not asset protected from creditors or their divorcing spouses. In order to protect the IRA and 401(k) accounts, you need to create a special type of trust that satisfies the IRS five-part identifiable beneficiary test. This type of a trust looks different than the traditional revocable living trust you may already be familiar with. Even if your estate is not subject to the estate tax, it may have a ticking time bomb of income tax issues that need to be addressed. If properly managed and planned for, todays laws allow for a significant amount of post-mortem tax deferred growth which can be a powerful engine for your loved ones. Without thinking through these issues, however, that ticking income tax time bomb may explode wiping out a significant chunk of what you wanted to leave your loved ones, while also denying them years of tax deferred growth. To complicate matters even further, blended families are more common now than at any time in the past. Second marriages where your spouse may not be the biological parent of your children and grandchildren play into the difficulty of planning with these types of accounts. Why? Because there is a trap for the unwary. This trap is the tax free spousal rollover of IRA and similar accounts. When you die naming your spouse as the primary beneficiary of your IRA or 401(k) account, then he or she usually rolls the account over into their own IRA account. They are then free to name whatever beneficiary that they want to. That beneficiary may or may not be your children. Moreover, your spouse can change his or her mind at any time and rename a new beneficiary to the account. When you want your spouse to benefit from an IRA or 401(k) account but want whatever is left in the account at your spouses death to revert back to your descendants, you need to engage in more advanced estate planning than simply completing the account beneficiary form. Keep in mind that nothing I have said here has much to do with estate taxes. Even modest IRA and 401(k) accounts are affected by the issues I raise. Like I said before, estate planning has entered a new dimension. This requires a careful analysis of your goals. How important is it to you that your surviving spouse has access to all of the cash and assets in the event of your death? What will his or her budget for current and future living and medical care expenses look like? What types of assets do you have that will satisfy that budget? Is it important that you leave amounts to your children or grandchildren? Is asset protection an issue for any of your loved ones? These are all good questions that need to be considered in this day and age. Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at www.sbshlaw.com.

Your emotional impasse will lift once you allow your highly tuned sense of justice to guide you on what to do about an associates questionable behavior. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) News about a project you hoped to work on might need more clarification. Take nothing just on faith. Draw up a list of questions, and insist on each being fully answered. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Giving your time to help others is fine. But dont lose sight of your own needs. Make plans for an energy-restoring getaway with that very special person in your life. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Congratulate yourself on getting that difficult job done to everyones satisfaction. This could be the first of many such challenges you might be offered down the line. LEO (July 23 to August 22) With your enthusiasm soaring again, you feel ready to tackle a tough new assignment. Good for you! And remember: Dont be too proud to accept help when its offered. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Cupid rules the week for single Virgos eager to make a romantic connection. Meanwhile, Virgo couples experience renewed commitment in their relationships. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Home and work issues vie for your attention through early next week. Rely on your Libran sense of balance to keep you from being overwhelmed by either side. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Creative projects might have to go on standby as you tackle other matters making demands on your time and energy. Things should ease by the middle of next week. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Your energies are high, and so are your aspirations. But be careful not to let work dominate the week. Its also important to spend time with family and friends. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Its a good time to set aside your pride and stop nursing those hurt feelings. Instead, consider restoring relationships you want to have back in your life. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You might be miffed at not being shown more appreciation for your hard work. But dont brood over it. Recognition comes in its own time and in its own way. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) With your inner creative juices starting to boil and bubble, this is a good time to launch a new arts-related project, or go back and restart the one you had set aside. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a way of seeing the best in people, which helps encourage them to live up to your perceptions. On June 10, 1692, in Salem Village in the Massachusetts Bay Colony, Bridget Bishop, the first colonist to be tried in the Salem witch trials, is hanged after being found guilty of the practice of witchcraft. In October, on order of the governor, the Salem witch trials, which resulted in the executions of 19 innocent women and men, effectively ended. On June 14, 1777, during the American Revolution, the Continental Congress adopts a resolution describing the design of the national flag. It became known as the Stars and Stripes. On June 13, 1905, pitcher Christy Matthewson of the New York Giants throws the second no-hitter of his career. Matthewson won 31 games and lost only nine, and ended the 1905 season with an earned run average of just 1.28, more than a run and a half lower than the league average. On June 15, 1917, some two months after Americas entrance into World War I, the U.S. Congress passes the Espionage Act. The Act essentially made it a crime for anyone to convey information intended to interfere with the war effort. Anyone found guilty of such acts would be subject to a fine of $10,000 and a prison sentence of 20 years. On June 12, 1940, Edsel Ford agrees to manufacture 9,000 Rolls-Royce-designed engines to be used in British and U.S. airplanes. Edsels father, Henry, who still retained control over the company, personally and publicly canceled the deal, telling a reporter: We are not doing business with the British government or any other government. On June 16, 1961, Rudolf Nureyev, the young star of the Soviet Unions Kirov Opera Ballet Company, defects during a stopover in Paris. Nureyev threw himself into the arms of airport security people, screaming, Protect me! On June 11, 1979, John Wayne, an iconic American film actor born Marion Morrison, dies at age 72. The John Wayne name was created during his first starring role in The Big Trail in 1930. The director didnt think Marion was a good name for an actor playing a tough Western hero. It was Israeli diplomat Abba Eban who made the following sage observation: Men and nations behave wisely once they have exhausted all the other alternatives. John Tyler fathered 15 children, more than any other U.S. president in history. He also holds the distinction of being the oldest president with living grandchildren. Tyler was born in 1790, and his son Lyon Gardiner Tyler was born in 1853. Lyon Gardiner, in turn, had children at a rather advanced age for fatherhood. Lyon Gardiner Tyler Jr. was born in 1924, when his father was 71, and Harrison Ruffin Tyler was born in 1928. Both men were still living in 2012, and the younger of the brothers maintained the Tyler family historic home, Sherwood Forest. Those who study such things say that the energy expended by those chewing bubble gum every day could power Los Angeles for the same length of time. The shamrock is often associated with Ireland, so you might be surprised to learn that its not the countrys national symbol. The official symbol is actually a Celtic harp, which makes Ireland the only country in the world to have a musical instrument for its national emblem. Its been reported that Napoleon Bonaparte was afraid of cats. According to a recent survey of married people in the United States, fully onequarter of respondents admitted to receiving a traffic ticket and hiding from their spouse. Nearly that many (24 percent) said they had kept a car accident secret from their husband or wife. In an average year, there will be about 700 tornadoes in the United States.

19B ISLAND SUN JUNE 7, 2013 School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, Now that school is out, my kids who are 8 and 12 will have more time to read. They are great readers and love to read, but my problem is that I am not sure of how to guide their reading selections. Should I worry about this? Kenneth P., Sanibel Kenneth, You are very fortunate to have two children who love to read; thats wonderful. While it may not be critical for you to help your children choose their reading material, its beneficial for you to be involved at least in their reading choices through discussion. To give you an idea of what is going on with reading choices on a national level, here is some data that was collected by Accelerated Reader, a commercial reading program used in a majority of schools, for the 2011-12 school year based on 8.6 million students: In grades 1 to 5, each student read, on average, 41.7 books and 208,098 words In grades 6 to 8, each student read, on average, 13.1 books and 433,308 words In grades 9 to 12, each student read, on average, 5.9 books and 307,206 words Most-Read Titles Overall Grades 1 to 2: Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss Grades 3 to 6: Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever by Jeff Kinney Grades 7 to 12: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins Most-Read Award Winners Caldecott Medal Winner: Officer Buckle and Gloria by Peggy Rathman (1996) Newbery Medal Winner: The Giver by Lois Lowry (1994) AR notes in their report that the influence of pop culture is significant and that many of the popular books have been made into movies. They also suggest that overall, there are many possible influences for students reading choices, including pop culture, award winners, required reading, and collegeand careerreadiness standards such as the Common Core State Standards. Here may be a helpful technique when working with your younger child. When s/he picks a book that seems interesting, you both should peruse the book and check the size of the font, number of pages and types of illustrations. Read the front and back covers as well to see if the book still appeals to your child. Then, a quick way to determine if the book is an appropriate match for your childs reading level is to have your child read several paragraphs aloud from various sections of the book. If your child can read most of the words without difficulty and can then explain the paragraph, you have most likely found a book in your childs continued on page 30B FSU GraduatePaul and Lydia Cook of Sanibel are proud to announce that their son Zachary Z.

Fabrics, wall coverings, area rugs, bed linens, accessories and, yes, even lampshades feature a wide variety of motifs and patterns... all designed to work in harmony as you work to create your rooms new look. But no matter the design, motif or pattern, the common denominator in successfully creating the look you want to achieve is color. So, how do you begin selecting color for your next project? Why not start by playing favorites and selecting colors youre comfortable with? Even if your favorite colors might not work, as a major player in your new room, you could possibly consider using that favorite color as an important accent shade. Here are some tips of helping you hone in on your perfect color selection: 1. Take a look in your closet. What colors do you see in your wardrobe that you particularly enjoy? Pastels? Dark jewel tones? Neutrals? Bright, lively shades? Doesnt it stand to reason that the very colors youre attracted to in your wardrobe might just be the perfect shades to consider in re-coloring a room? 2. Take a look around your room. Is there an accessory, piece of art, even an area rug that speaks to you? Entire room designs have been beautifully accomplished by focusing on one simple multi-colored vase. 3. Whats your personal style? Do you enjoy a more casual lifestyle? Perhaps the contemporary style is more you. Knowing your style will give you an important clue as to the color options you might want to consider. Once youve done your homework and decided on your perfect color palette, be sure to select one dominate color, a maximum of three adjacent hues, and a dramatic accent color to complete your overall color scheme.

22B ISLAND SUN JUNE 7, 2013deaRPharmacistHow To Reduce Pain And Inflammationby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: What do you recommend for strains, sprains and spasms? Im an athlete and have something happen all the time! TS, Dallas, Texas Great! Youre committed to staying fit; Im a gym junkie myself. Studies prove how exercise boosts your cognitive function and memory recall, improves mitochondrial function, spreads healthier DNA and improves mood... makes your jeans look good, too! But one misplaced step can result in an injury that hurts for days, or longer! A sprain refers to a stretched or torn ligament, for example, in the wrist or ankle. Ligaments connect bones to other bones at a joint. Some of you feel a pop when it happens. A strain refers to a stretched or torn muscle/tendon. Strains cause pain, swelling and sometimes muscle spasms. No fun! Medicines usually treat the smoke, not the fire. To quickly improve your level of comfort, consider RICE. The RICE acronym will help you remember essential steps to relieve a strained ankle, wrist or other area. R is for rest. Its important to minimize use of the affected area while it heals. Also important immediately after a strain is the I for ice. Ice reduces swelling that occurs while your body sends blood to bring white blood cells and nutrients to the hurt area. The C is for compression, which also helps with inflammation. Finally, E is for elevation. Keeping the strained joint elevated sometimes decreases inflammation but a physician should be consulted. Certain supplements may provide natural relief for pain and swelling, thus treating the fire. Here goes: Arnica Arnica montana can be taken as homeopathic pellets, or applied directly to your skin. I like Traumeel made by Heel, because it has arnica plus other ingredients that reduce pain and inflammation. Astaxanthin A super nutrient and protective antioxidant, science shows it is remarkable at suppressing NF-kappaB, a chemical pathway in your body that spits out compounds, that when produced in excess, create pain: Prostaglandins, TNFa, IL-1B, iNOS and others. Twelve milligrams of this one is my go-to supplement after excessive boogying at Zumba! Comfrey This herb has been shown to decrease swelling from sprains and strains. It contains allantoin which reduces inflammation. When applied to the skin, Comfrey ointments can help with bruising, pulled muscles and ligaments, sprains, strains and osteoarthritis. Comfrey is sold at health food stores. Magnesium Malate A specific type of magnesium bound to an apple extract (malic acid) which helps muscle spasm and pain, even fibromyalgia. Epsom salt baths are great, toss in a few drops of eucalyptus essential oil. Turmeric and Garlic Cooking with these ingredients (or supplementing) improves muscle recovery and reduces inflammation by suppressing pain-causing cytokines all over the body. Zinc After a trauma or injury, your body requires extra minerals to expedite the healing process. Zinc is particularly supportive for wound healing (and prostate health). Supplementing your zinc and vitamin C may shorten your healing time and rebuild soft tissue connections. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition. Suzy Cohen is the author of The 24-Hour Pharmacist and is a registered pharmacist. To contact her, visit www. dearpharmacist.com. by Karen L. Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAMLIn our culture, essentially we are reactive to caring for our breasts. Women are taught to check for lumps when showering or have a mammogram or do thermography (my personal preference). For men, there is little suggested to protect their breasts yet breast cancer is increasing for both sexes exponentially. With knowledge of our anatomy and the impact of moving energy through our systems we can learn proactive methods to create and maintain healthy breasts. With regular self-care, you can help prevent problems before they advance. As learned from prior articles, our body does not have a pump to move the lymph through our system so we are reliant on motion to move the toxins from our lymph system; thus the Neurolymphatic massage and spinal flush tools. Many women dont realize that wearing tight bras or bras with plastic or wire underwire clog the lymphatics under the breasts creating an energetic blockage. In fact, research has shown that many women with breast cancer have worn underwire bras. A list of wireless bras may be found on Donna Edens website www.Innersource.net. The techniques addressed below will aide energy flowing into your breasts. This applies to both sexes. The diagram of the lymphatic reflex points are in the prior article on Neurolymphatic points. Use one or more of the following tools, found in Energy Medicine, pages 278 and 279. Tool 1. Under the right breast are liver points and under the left breast are the stomach reflex points. They are shaped as a half moon, following the contours of the underwire of a bra. Make a fist and use your knuckles to rub along these points after removing your bra or as part of the 5 Minute Routine. If sore, you know your body needs the rub. Spend 15 to 20 seconds rubbing. Several times a day is beneficial if you wear an underwire or tight bra. Tool 2. To access the circulation-sex reflex points under both breasts, place the thumbs under the breast and lift the breast until the thumb is behind your nipples. Remember that if sore, you are assisting your body by removing the toxins from these points. Rub for 15 to 20 seconds. Tool 3. Along both sides of the body are two more important Neurolymphatic Reflex Points. Beside the breast, make a fist and use the knuckles to rub from the side of your breasts down to about three inches above the waist; this moves toxins from the spleen points. At the same time on the same side, use the other hand to rub the large intestine points running from the top of the outside edge of the leg to above the knee. Use vigorous motion to rub in circles as you move down both areas for at least 45 seconds. Yeah, you have now been very proactive in providing healing energy and the removal of stuck toxins from your body to enhance your breast health. Have fun with your energy!

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, Growing up our son seemed different from other boys, but the school and our doctor said he was fine. He married and then emotionally he fell apart. His wife divorced him, he lost his job and he couldnt handle living alone, so we asked him to come back and live with us. Time has passed and now we find our son is severely mentally ill, living with us and we are terrified. His doctor has put him on medication that he refuses or forgets to take. We have health problems ourselves now and have no idea what to do next. Do you have any suggestions? Ebbie Dear Ebbie, Certainly living in terror of your adult child is not acceptable, so what are your options? Continue living in your present situation, move or have your son move. To explore these options, I suggest you call your local Department of Human Services, Adult Services. They may be able to help you directly or suggest resources in the community with which you can make contact. This must be very hard for you. He is your son and despite being fearful I assume you want to help him. However, the current situation does not sound like it is helpful to your son or you and your husband. Pryce Dear Ebbie, Pryce has given you some very good advice. You cannot live in terror in your own home, our homes are supposed to be places of comfort and relaxation, and a safe haven. Your son is ill and needs professional help. If you continue to live in such an environment you will all be ill. Please contact the professionals as soon as possible, as I have experienced circumstances very similar to yours and the results can be absolutely disastrous, if help is not secured. You owe it to yourself, your wife and your sick son. Lizzie Lizzie and Pryces email address is momandmeaging@hotmail.com.


23B ISLAND SUN JUNE 7, 2013Dr. DaveA Bit Of A Nutcaseby Dr. Dave HepburnOn rare occasions, when I find that my pantry is low on the essential food groups such as Cocoa Puffs, Snickers and Dr. Pepper, I go grocery shopping. Not one to linger too long in the tofu and wheat germ aisle, I slink over to the bulk food section, salivating fondly over these massive barrels of massive calories. When it comes to the cases of nuts, admittedly, I am a bit of a nutcase. I scoop up a large mixture of nuts, flick aside the ugly Brazil nuts, flick in a few more cashews and make for my pantry. But I happen to have two teenage sons/ squirrels nesting in my home. By the time I get around to treating myself, I notice that all of the cashews have mysteriously fallen out of the bag. My Keep your hands off my nuts! command does nothing but garner snickers, which as I mentioned is, in fact, one of the more essential and lovely food groups. Returning later, the almonds have been selectively extricated and are gone. Finally, the walnuts are freed from the mix, leaving me with nothing but a bag of filberts and salt. This drives me... exactly. Nuts, though unquestionably chockfull of fat, just might be the healthiest snack in your cupboard: Almonds A handful of almonds a day will keep the cardiovascular surgeon away. The lowering of LDL cholesterol, known as the mother of all evil cholesterol, is essential for routine heart pump maintenance. In fact, in those who are at risk of heart disease, the aggressive lowering of LDL cholesterol is necessary. According to the nutty professors at Harvard who study these things, a daily handful of almonds can lower LDL cholesterol enough to reduce cardiovascular disease by a whopping 20 percent! In some cases, a handful of almonds may be used instead of cholesterol-lowering medication. Almonds are also rich in folate, a vitamin important in keeping hearts, fetuses, bones and brains healthy. Cashew Gesundheit! These luxurious nuts are nothing to sneeze at. Cashews are rich in selenium, a mineral shown to protect against prostate cancer. (This being the case, my sons should have the healthiest prostates south of Spitzbergen.) Cashews, like most nuts, are best eaten unsalted and raw while the oil is fresh. Like almonds, these nuts are loaded in monounsaturated fats, which is good fat. If good fat makes as much sense as slumber party or cat owner, realize that, like good cholesterol, unsaturated fat acts biochemically to reduce the risk of cancers and coronaries. Walnuts Rich in omega 3 fatty acids, walnuts are, like fish, beneficial in lowering cholesterol. They are also rich in arginine, an amino acid important in the synthesis of nitric oxide, which helps relax tense blood vessels. Pistachios These nuts have been known to cause an unfortunate disease known in the medical field as Pistachio nail. Wrestling vigorously to get at a pistachio may cause scrapes under the tender thumbnail skin, which when further irritated with salt will cause its victim to insert the injured thumb deep into the mouth. Sucking vigorously at the thumb, the victim is often seen simultaneously sifting through the bag for easier pistachios. Peanuts Peanuts are not your normal nut. In fact, peanuts are no more a nut case than Michael Jackson isnt. They are legumes. But as we can salt them, roast them and sell them in the bulk food containers, lets consider them nuts. The average child will eat 1,500 peanut butter sandwiches by the time they graduate from high school. This is not necessarily bad as peanuts are high in fiber, niacin and a powerful antioxidant called reservatol, the same flavenol that gives red wine its reputation as a protector of hearts. Same benefit, less hangover at recess. So, as I sit here with my bag of filberts and salt, my everlasting-prostate sons are fully sated. While a corn doodle or other empty carb snack leaves the snacker hungry again in 30 minutes, a handful of nuts satisfies hunger pangs for several hours. Nut snackers actually eat less, lose weight and have less diabetes. Satisfying, fat, tasty and highly nut-ricious.

Indispensable Advice from Dr. Dave Get your copy of Dr. Daves Book at Sanibel Island Books and Gifts,1571 Periwinkle Way 472-5223 Got A Problem? Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: I am a grandparent and I have real concerns about my grandchildren with the way our country is going. With all of the uncertainty now, how can I help them feel good?A: I hear this from many grandparents today, as we know the culture is nothing like it used to be. We have major concerns over social and financial conditions globally. While we may be instinctively optimistic, positive and idealistic, those ideal dreams and sense of empowerment are fading fast and we are feeling more of a loss of, rather than a sense of, safety and security. All the more, we feel the increased stress that this produces individually and collectively. New York Times best-selling author Carolyn Myss tells how every individual possesses a sacred contract, an obligation to fulfill a divine destiny, and the vision of our mystic founders. Myss describes how every nation holds an agreement made for the planets highest good. Each citizens sacred contract is interwoven with that of his nation. From its inception, Myss explains, the United States has been a great spiritual experiment, an unprecedented evolutionary step forward for human civilization that is both magnificent in its promise and perilous in its dangers. To rescue America from its shadow and rescue its highest potential, Myss explains we must envision how we want this nation to be. We cannot return to the 1950s and s era, rather we must realistically envision where America needs to go. There is a calling for people to rethink whats going on in a culture deeply affected by war. We sense deep in our soul that our nation is hurting. The nation that gave birth to freedom needs liberating. Myss suggests we hold the earth in our hands daily and remind ourselves that the power is in our own hands. We can remind ourselves of the power of our own soul. Our soul is always talking to us; it is just that we dont always listen. In meditation we can listen. We have always been courageous and optimistic peoples. We have the ability to help our country achieve its optimum potential. We are the change agents. We must shift self-indulgence, greed and narcissism to self-discovery, simplicity and serving our fellow man. I would encourage you to have open talks with your grandchildren and help them to learn the art of present moment awareness and meditation to help them stay centered in an uncertain world. Tell them to wake up each day and say that something good is going to happen to them and the world. Keep the positive forces working to the best of your ability and they will learn from your inspiration.

For older children who will be choosing a book independently, you may want to have them keep a log of all the titles that they have read, ask them informal questions about the book; for example, why they like it, why are the characters interesting, have they learned any new information from it just keep the dialogue going and show that you are really interested in what your child is reading. Any discussion you have with your children about their reading will serve to increase their reading and comprehension skills. Kids really enjoy it when their parents are involved with their reading activities. Ms. Greggs is adjunct faculty at Edison State College where she teaches psychology and education courses.
