The awards ceremony will be held on June 26 at the Tampa Bay Grand Hyatt beginning at 6 p.m. For more than 40 years, CROW has been caring for and rehabilitating sick, injured or orphaned wildlife, including many threatened and endangered species, through a conservation medicine approach to care. In addition, CROW provides education to young people and adults that increases awareness of appropriate human/wildlife interaction and emphasizes the need for conservation of Southwest Floridas coastal wildlife habitats. Since its establishment in 1968, CROW has treated and released more than 60,000 wildlife patients. CROW sees thousands of patients each year representing more than 200 species of mammals, reptiles, birds and amphibians. Many of these animals are threatened or endangered including wood storks, sandhill cranes, bald eagles, least terns, gopher tortoises and loggerhead, Kemps ridley and green sea turtles. CROW is the only gulf coast facility between Sarasota and the Florida Keys licensed to care for sea turtles. CROW takes a conservation medicine approach to wildlife rehabilitation with the ultimate goal being the reintroduction of wildlife into their natural habitats and a reduction of wildlife casualties from human interaction through public education.continued on page 7 Instructor Angie Koch leads a play-writing classFrancis P.

Stingray Week Leaves Its Marksubmitted by Kate MelansonWhat perhaps might be the best summer ever has officially begun at Sanibel Sea School. The theme of the second week was stingrays, focusing on learning about the defensive mechanisms these interesting fish employ. Kids from ages 6 to 12 enjoyed themselves in games, activities and art projects all centered on the hidden stingray. No two days are the same at Sanibel Sea School. Campers made sand-sculptures of creatures, ranging from stingrays to octopuses to caimans, with defense mechanisms, explaining why they need them. The creativity didnt stop in the sand, as campers designed their own stingray shuffle to the tune of the song Cupid Shuffle, which was filmed later on in the week. They also spent a lot of time seining and cast-netting, a favorite among campers, as well as a canoe trip along the causeway. Campers put forward their best attempts to do as stingrays do, using the power of electroreception assisted by metal detectors to find metal tins hidden on the beach containing questions about stingrays that, if answered correctly, could lead them to a sweet treat. An attempt was also made to swim with wings in a homemade flight suit. A clam hunt took place at Bunche Beach, with campers finding roseate spoonbills, kings crown conchs and much more in the process. Back at the Sea School, a mosaic of a stingray was made, with each camper getting a one square foot piece of the puzzle. When all the pieces were dry the next day, they were put back together, forming the big picture. Each camper took home their square, which also doubled as a chalkboard on the other side. The Sea School weathered some of the wrath from Tropical Storm Andrea, but it did not deter the spirits of the stingray week crew. A group of older campers went to the beach in the morning, hoping to do a stingray obstacle course, only to find that thanks to a storm surge, there was no beach to complete it on. The morning turned into something completely different than expected, exploring the extremely high tide and the creatures washed ashore. Surf paddle races were held on Friday morning as usual, after the storm subsided. More fierce than usual, two teams tied in the races, leading to a paddle-off between counselors. Milk and cookies were served to campers and parents, signaling the end of camp, as they reviewed a slide showcontinued on page 30 Campers model the homemade flight suits worn during Stingray Week Some of the Sanibel Sea Schools younger campers

ISLAND SUN JUNE 14, 20136 INSIDE CITY HALL Monitoring BlueGreen Algae Bloom On BeachThe City of Sanibel is monitoring an algae bloom along our Gulf of Mexico beaches. A brown colored patch of water in the surf zone along some stretches of Sanibel beaches has been positively identified by biologists as a single-celled blue-green alga called Trichodesmium erythraeum. Common sense should always be used before swimming in any area with dense concentrations of this or any other algae. Small blooms resemble sawdust floating on the water surface; larger blooms can look like oil slicks or sea foam. Trichodesmium blooms have a unique sweet smell when they are breaking down, and large blooms can turn the water red or pink when stressed cells leach out pigments. At various times in their development, blooms can also appear brown, green, or white. The city, in close coordination with the SCCF Marine Lab, Sanibel Sea School, and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Research Institute (FWRI), is carefully monitoring this algae bloom until it dissipates. According to FWRI, Trichodesmium is found worldwide in tropical and subtropical seas. Blooms are not related to coastal nutrient sources or pollution, but generally form offshore, reaching nearshore waters when pushed in by prevailing winds and tidal currents. Blooms in the Gulf of Mexico tend to occur between May and September, when iron-rich Saharan dust is blown into the atmosphere, transported across the Atlantic Ocean by wind currents, and deposited into the Gulf of Mexico. If you have any questions regarding this news release, contact the City of Sanibel Natural Resources Department at 472-3700. Improvements At Sundial Get Formal Approvalby Anne MitchellThe Sanibel Planning Commission on Tuesday formally approved two resolutions relating to improvements being made at Sundial Beach and Golf Resort. One was to approve a development permit for 32 bonus outdoor seats at an existing non-conforming restaurant. The other was to grant a conditional use permit to establish a new 400-squarefoot kitchen on the ground floor at Sundial to service the lower level dining facilities including 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 has already been updated. The kitchen will replace a former video game room and will not increase the footprint of the resort. The resort will post signs stating no take out and no food to be taken beyond the property line.

7 ISLAND SUN JUNE 14, 2013 From page 1Gulf Guardian AwardThe Gulf of Mexico Program initiated the Gulf Guardian awards in 2000 as a way to recognize and honor the businesses, community groups, individuals, and agencies that are taking positive steps to keep the Gulf healthy, beautiful and productive. First, second and third place awards are given in seven categories: individual, business/industry, youth environmental education, civic/nonprofit organizations, cultural diversity/ environmental justice, partnership and bi-national efforts. This years Gulf Guardian Award recipients are to be commended for providing environmental leadership to protect and restore one of our nations most treasured natural resources, the Gulf of Mexico. These award recipients are true environmental stewards and protectors of this vital ecosystem, said EPA Acting Administrator A. Stanley Meiburg. The Gulf of Mexico Program began in 1988 to protect, restore, and maintain the health and productivity of the Gulf of Mexico ecosystem in economically sustainable ways. The Gulf of Mexico Program is underwritten by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and is a non-regulatory, inclusive consortium of state and federal government agencies and representatives of the business and agricultural community, fishing industry, scientists, environmentalists, and community leaders from all five Gulf States. The Gulf Program seeks to improve the environmental health of the Gulf in concert with economic development Ben Scaggs, Director of the Gulf of Mexico Program, added, Given all the incredible challenges that the Gulf has faced over the last several years and the work that has continued with strength and vigor despite what sometime seem like overwhelming obstacles, it is difficult to adequately and succinctly express the community value of the awards and the role they play in reminding us of what yet needs to be done while giving us all the energy and optimism to stay the course.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 14, 20138 Alligator Tales: The Latest Chapterby Barbara Joy Cooley, president, Committee of the Islands Sanibel is and shall remain a barrier island sanctuary, one in which a diverse population lives in harmony with the islands wildlife and natural habitats. The Sanibel community must be vigilant in the protection and enhancement of its sanctuary characteristics. from the Sanibel Vision Statement, Sanibel City Charter, Section 3.18Those words from the Sanibel Vision Statement, which cite not only living in harmony with our wildlife, but also being vigilant in protecting the sanctuary characteristics of the island, are ones we should bear in mind regarding the islands alligators. And for several years now, we have been monitoring and reporting on the worrisome aspects of official harvesting of these animals When mid-April arrived, I noted that it was time to check up on Sanibels alligators again. On April 18, I requested email copies of all the alligator police reports from March 15, 2012, through mid-April, 2013. Police Chief Bill Tomlinson readily asked his staff to email them to me. I made a similar request of the states Alligator Management Program at the Fish and Wildlife Commission: would they please email me information about alligators harvested from Sanibel during the past year? Lindsey Hord, the state biologist who directs that program, also readily asked his staff to email the information to me. The bottom line is that of 113 alligatorrelated incidents/police reports, only 4 alligators were removed from Sanibel and destroyed. That represents much less alligator death than in other recent years; it is basically a return to the old days, when few gators on this sanctuary island were destroyed. After I read all 411 pages of reports, I made a 7-page table/summary, which I analyzed. During this analysis, I was struck by the fact that many small alligators get into swimming pools. That happens more frequently than I imagined. Some people call the police to report the presence of an alligator for no apparent reason, other than that perhaps they think the police need to know. When asked, these callers said no, they didnt feel threatened by the animal, and no, they were not asking for it to be removed. Sadly, a couple of alligators were struck by vehicles. About those small alligators in swimming pools: what typically happened was that the responding police officer would remove the gator from the pool, then transport it and release it on conservation land off of Island Inn Road. One hungry baby gator found in front of the Sanibel Caf was also taken to that spot. A few small alligators were simply relocated to a pond near the place where they were found. The harrowing experience of being relocated by a police officer probably reinforced a healthy fear of humans in these young gators. Many, many times, there would be a call to the police about an alligator, but the subject alligator was gone by the time police officers arrived on the scene. Sometimes the alligator was still on site, but when the police arrived, it fled into a nearby pond or bayou. Thats what good alligators do! They avoid people. There were a few serious cases in which the alligator seemed to behave as if it had been fed by humans. Everyone on Sanibel should know that it is a violation of the law to feed an alligator, because Tahitian Gardens, Sanibel 239-395-5353www.SynergySportswear.com Olde Sanibel Shoppes 630 Tarpon Bay Road239.395.1464 Sanibel Island Island Winds CoiffuresHAIR SALON FOR WOMEN & MEN 695 Tarpon Bay Road, Sanibel Promenade 472-2591"Let us Pamper You!"LINDA MARISA JEANNE JOSEPHINE FEATURING FACIAL THREADING BY JOSEPHINE FEATURING FACIAL THREADING BY JOSEPHINE( b btnf) NEW CUSTOMERS ALWAYS WELCOME!Featuring Manicures Pedicures Cuts Color Perms WOOSTER WOOSTER TV TVSERVING SANIBEL AND CAPTIVA FOR OVER 35 YEARSTelevision Sales and Service Competitive Pricing Free Delivery Fast, Friendly Service2422 Palm Ridge Road Sanibel FL 33957239-472-1133woostertv@embarqmail.com www.woostertv.com Sanibel alligator pondside... and on log with turtle photos by Barbara Joy Cooley


9 ISLAND SUN JUNE 14, 2013feeding alligators can cause them to associate humans with food a very dangerous situation. The collection of reports contained evidence that the Sanibel Police coordinated with the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge management about alligators whod been seen crossing the road or shared use path and entering refuge property. In one interesting case about a year ago, a crew working on a weir near Tarpon Bay Road was approached by a 10-foot alligator who watched them. Refuge officers arrived and stated that the gator did not appear to be a threat and would not be moved. They said that theyd monitor the gator for 30 days; if it was still in the area then, theyd help remove it. Sometimes people call the police to report alligators doing exactly what alligators are supposed to do. For example, last August, someone reported that a six-foot alligator was swimming nonaggressively in the bayou, a full 80 yards from the boardwalk near Blind Pass condominiums. More recently, a woman observed an alligator eating turtles in a pond by Hurricane Lane. Imagine that. Nature in action. On a rare occasion, an alligator will do something that is difficult to explain. For example, last October, a resort manager called the police to report that an 18-inch long baby alligator bit a landscaper on his boot. Thats right, the alligator latched onto the heel of his boot only. Im not kidding. At least the little gator was smart enough to flee into the pond when the police officer arrived on the scene. Recreating in all the wrong places Once in a while, people will call because they see alligators where they thought alligators would not go, like on the beach, or even in the surf. Trust me, alligators do visit the beach now and then. Ive photographed them there. Then there was the 3-foot gator that went to the ball field. It was taken by the police to a body of water off of Island Inn road, to join the small gators whod been removed from swimming pools. One resident of a lane off of Beach Road repeatedly called the police about an alligator in the water near his property. One day, it dared to sun itself on his property. The trapper was called, but was unable to capture the alligator on February 4. Some people were a little confused about their neighboring wildlife. A man on Joewood Lane in Gulf Ridge called to report the presence of an iguana. It was actually a 2.5-foot alligator, which retreated into the water when the police officer approached. Now heres a case where someone really did have a problem with an alligator. A couple returned to their home in East Rocks to find an 8-foot alligator asleep in front of the side door. The couple did not have a key to the front door, and so could not enter their home. But the alligator was gone, thankfully, by the time the police arrived. The residents said they did not feel that the gator posed any threat. He was just in the way. In the final incident of the reporting year, a realtor reported a 3-foot alligator in the retention pond at Sundial on Middle Gulf Drive. The smart alligator swam to the middle of the pond when the police officer approached. The police officer was unable to catch the wily gator, which appeared to fear humans. The final tally? 113 incidents, 21 reports sent to the alligator trapper, and a total of 4 alligators removed (destroyed) and 21 relocated on the island. I wish no alligators had been destroyed; and I sincerely hope that these four were not destroyed needlessly. What you can do What can you do to protect alligators from this sad fate? Communicate: Be sure new residents in your neighborhood are informed about alligators. Educate: Inform people that it is illegal to feed alligators. This criminal act is punishable by up to a $500 fine and 60 days in jail. If you see people feeding alligators on Sanibel, call the police at 4723111. Feeding alligators is dangerous and it makes the alligators dangerous. Calls that can kill: Do NOT call the police about an alligator unless the alligator is behaving in a predatory manner toward humans. Complaining to the police about nonaggressive alligators can result in these animals being destroyed needlessly. Also, unfortunately, trappers have been known to knowingly take and destroy the wrong alligators. So please do not call the police unless there is a threatening alligator. And by the way, an alligator sitting still with his mouth open is only trying to cool off; his open mouth is not a sign of aggression. Remember where you are: Be aware that alligators were here before people came to Sanibel. Who would move to south Florida and then expect the alligators to leave? Keep your distance: Never approach alligators. Do not linger at the edge of fresh or brackish water bodies, especially at dusk, night, or dawn, and especially in warmer weather. Use caution, and be aware of your surroundings. Be smart: Do not work with your back to the water, especially in a crouching position. Do not swim in fresh or brackish water bodies in south Florida. Mind the innocents: Never allow small children or dogs to play near the water unsupervised. Pet cats should be kept indoors (not only for their own safety, but also for the safety of birds). As mysanibel.com says, remember that alligators are an important part of Sanibels natural history as well as an integral component of our freshwater ecosystem. The Committee of the Islands was founded in 1975 by those who helped incorporate Sanibel as an independent, self-governing city within Lee County. Guided by the mission of these founders, the Committee seeks to ensure the continuity of good local government, to protect the environment, and to preserve the sanctuary character of our barrier island community.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 14, 201310 LLOYD PARKER WELLSLloyd Parker Wells, born in St. Louis, Missouri 92 years ago, died on May 25, 2013 at the Shell Point Retirement Community in Fort Myers. Lloyd Wells... aviator! Lloyd Wells... visionary! Lloyd Wells... navigator! Lloyd Wells... dreamer! Lloyd Wells... diver, archeologist, founder of several newspapers, world traveler, architect, author, creator, autodidact, disturber of the peace and much more! Mr. Wellss grandfather was mayor of St. Louis at the time of the St. Louis Worlds Fair, circa 1910. He was one of the underwriters of Charles Lindberghs solo flight to Paris. Mr. Wells relished telling the story of Lindberghs visit to the Wells summer retreat on Lake Michigan when he, Lloyd Wells, was 6 years old. Lindbergh flew in and landed in front of the Wells home, tied up his float plane in front of a wide-eyed little boy and was greeted warmly by grandfather Wells. All went into the house for lunch, at the end of which it was suggested to the guest that he take young Wells up for a ride. So Wellss first experience in a plane was with none other than Charles Lindbergh! Young Wells lost his father before he was 2 years old as a result of injuries sustained in World War I. He also was born dyslexic and struggled with his inability to read until he found other venues to expand his lively intellect; he loved his years at the Avon Old Farms School in Connecticut. He became a pilot himself at 19 and flew for Northwest Airlines (later absorbed by Pan Am). Mr. Wells major interest was in community development, especially Chestnut Hill, Pennsylvania, a bedroom community of Philadelphia. He also became an amateur archeologist, studying the Xingu Indians of Brazilian Amazon and the Bushmen of the Kalahari Desert. As a diver, he was head of naval operations for a University of Pennsylvania exploration of a 230 AD wreck off the coast of Turkey. Wells left Philadelphia in 1975 to live near Calais, Maine on Crawford Lake close to the Canadian border. There, he built one final house with his stepsons and their friends. His amphibian plane made exploration of that area of Maine a joy. He left it and flying for Falmouth, Maine and boating in his antique Lawley powerboat. His final years were spent in Florida at the Shell Point Retirement Community. In 2000, Wells coauthored with Larry Lemmel a book, Recreating Democracy: Breathing New Life Into American Communities. OBITUARY Adair Kleinberg, long-time Sanibel resident, passed away in her sleep on June 1, 2013. She was something rare for these parts, a native Floridian, born in Hobe Sound on August 10, 1932, the youngest of three sisters. Her father, Paul, was the postmaster of Hobe Sound for 30 years after working for the government in Washington, D.C., where he met her mother, Mary, who was also a rarity for those times. She had come from Indiana to D.C. to have a career. During World War II at the age of 11, she and her sisters made their contribution by manning a tower on the beach to watch for German submarines. She and Hartley, her beloved husband of 60 years, spent 30 years in northern New Jersey raising a family. There, she was president of Bnai Brith, a member of their Garden State Council, and chair of the Anti-Defamation League. Her mother had instilled in her the importance of helping others, as she had been on the Board of Education in Hobe Sound and was an early advocate for the rights of Native Americans and African Americans in the area. Adair followed her beliefs as a member of the Democratic Club. Along with her love the beach, kayaking and tennis, Adair learned to share Hartleys love of skiing. They spent many years traveling to their home in the mountains of Steamboat Springs, where they enjoyed snow sports in winter and hiking, whitewater rafting and biking in summer. Adair especially enjoyed the rodeo, and was thrilled to find that one of the rodeo riders was actually a distant cousin. She returned to her beloved Florida when Hartley turned 62; as she told him, I miss the warm weather of my home, Im going back to Florida with you or without you! They settled on Sea Oats Drive and both became active in conservation issues and protecting the ecology of the island. She was active in many local groups, including SCCF, Ding Darling, CROW and FISH. She could be counted on for annual turtle nest monitoring, counting osprey nests and the Audubon bird count, and was a docent at the Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum. Her collection of shells from walks on the beach rivals that of the museum. She is survived by loving husband, Hartley Kleinberg, her daughter, Debby, and beloved granddaughter, Katy, a student at University of Miami by whom she will be lovingly remembered. She is predeceased by her elder sister, Marjorie, whose surviving children, her niece and nephew, Karen and Jerry, and their families reside in Jackson, Mississippi. Her remaining sister, Eleanor, and her daughter, niece Janice, are long-time residents of Atlanta, Georgia. Adair was an active member of Temple Bat Yam. A memorial service will be held there in November. Donations may be made to SCCF or the BaileyMatthews Shell Museum. We are a collecve of people like a family a nd not just a band.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 14, 201312 Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellPlease take note: The SanibelCaptiva Rotary Club is now meeting at The Dunes Golf and Tennis Club. The club meets at 7 a.m. every Friday and we extend an open invitation to all interested in learning more about Rotary to club join us at one of our upcoming meetings at The Dunes. Upcoming speakers are (June 14) Ken Leach, Portland police officer, certified teacher of crisis intervention training for police and correction officers; and (June 21) Sanibel Historical Museum and Village Executive Director Emilie Alfino and President of the Board of Directors Dorothy Donaldson. San-Cap Rotary Trust Board Officer Chet Sadler brought two distinguished visitors along with him to our meeting last Friday. John Lester from the Hitchen Tilehouse Rotary Club, England and Jacque Annilus, Saint Marc, Haiti Rotary Member/Water Project Contractor. Chet has been working closely with these two gentlemen on funding for a new water-well project at the Saint Marc School, Haiti. This well will provide non-drinking water for irrigation of school land used to grow income-producing crops that will help to financially support the school. This well water will also be used to flush toilets in the new restroom facilities that Rotary built last year. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club is partnering with the Hitchen Tilehouse Rotary Club, England on this new water-well project in Haiti. John Lester presented a check for $2,450 to our club, which in return we matched with another $2,450. A $4,900 check was then prepared and given to Jacque for the construction of the well at the Saint Marc School, Haiti. The club was also honored to have as our guest speaker for the morning Dr. Sandy Cohn, Vice Chair of the Lee Memorial Health System Board. Dr. Cohn certainly has an extremely impressive background holding the position of Chair of Pediatrics at Wayne State University and Pediatrician in Chief at Childrens Hospital of Michigan. He was appointed provost and Senior Vice President of academic affairs at WSU in 1986 to 199l. Sandy founded and continues to serve as Chair of the advisory board for the dean of College of Health Professions and Social Work at Florida Gulf Coast University.

13 ISLAND SUN JUNE 14, 2013 From page 12Rotary Happeningsexplained that Lee Memorial Health System is one of the largest public, not for profit health systems in Florida that receives no direct tax support, and is governed by a 10 member publicly elected Board of Directors. Lee Memorial Health System includes Lee Memorial Hospital, Cape Coral Hospital, Health Park Medical Center and Gulf Coast Medical Center. The board oversees five acute care hospitals, a rehabilitation hospital, a childrens hospital, a skilled nursing facility, a multi-specialty physician group and various subsidiaries and sub-agencies. The board members also pursue projects and educational efforts through the department. Lee Memorial is now building a much-needed 128-bed pediatric medical health care facility Golisano Childrens Hospital at the Health Park Medical Center, Fort Myers that will serve families from Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Hendry and Glades counties. Although pediatric patients have been treated at Health Park the hospital has had to send some pediatric patients to other hospitals for treatment, not currently available at Lee Memorial. The new Golisano Childrens Hospital will bring those treatments in-house and provide a medical environment that will house treatment rooms, labs, and patient room areas in a self-contained building. Health Park Health Center will then be able to use the vacated space at Health Park for additional patient rooms and treatment centers serving the community at-large. In our Q-and-A session with Dr. Cohn, a question was asked regarding the Leapfrog low-graded evaluation recently published on Lee Memorial Health System. Dr. Cohn responded with some concern. In Leapfrogs case, points are taken off of the grading system if the hospitals being evaluated do not volunteer information for the evaluation. Lee Memorial did not volunteer information. The hospital has yet to receive a full explanation regarding the grading. Sandy adamantly expressed his confidence in the Lee Memorial Health System stating these statisics: Ventilator-associated pneumonia, which is often fatal, saw the largest decrease 87 percent between 2009 and 2011. Central-line blood infections in intensive care units and urinary-tract infections dropped about 73 percent and 60 percent respectively. Safety is a top priority, when a system failure is identified a team instantly evaluates the situation and places in action a plan to correct the situation.

It looks and feels that way lately to the staff and volunteers at the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW). CROW is in desperate need of volunteers to help feed the 148 baby animals currently in residence. An increase in babies during the spring is normal, said Peg Albert, CROWs executive director, but this year weve been overwhelmed with babies for a much longer time period than we generally expect, she said. Many babies are healthy but were taken to CROW by people believing they were orphaned or abandoned. Some have been injured or are sick and are in various stages of rehabilitation. For these patients, regularly scheduled meals are critical to their successful healing. Albert said the CROW staff, students and volunteers have been working long hours to meet the needs of this burgeoning baby population that includes 31 raccoons, 27 opossums and 88 baby birds of many varieties, but theyre still behind. Anyone who is available to volunteer for four hours in the morning or afternoon to feed babies, particularly on Monday or Tuesday mornings, would make a real difference in the lives of these animals, Albert said. If you are able to help CROW feed these babies, call 472-3644. Baby opossum Baby birds Sanibel-Captiva sheller Mike Gillmore spent last weekend shelling various spots around the islands and found four large alphabet cones, each measuring almost three inches. All are various colors with one being completely worn out by the sea. Gillmore said shelling post-Tropical Storm Andrea was fun and exciting with so much washing ashore. He shelled Blind Pass, Lighthouse Beach and Gulfside City Park. Shells Found Mike Gillmore

Matt MitchellOn June 12 and 13, the Florida Wildlife Commission will decide whether to let the Gulf coast snook season open up September 1 as planned. After catching so many slot-sized fish in the last few months, its awesome to see this fishery really rebound and there seem to be plenty of snook around. On the other hand, with the snook fishing improving so much after being closed for three years, why not keep it closed for another year or two and really give the stocks a chance to recover? Snook are one of the reasons our fishery is so unique and whatever can be done to restore the numbers is a good idea in my book. To me, there is a whole lot more to snook fishing than eating snook filets. These fish are the jewel of Southwest Florida fishing and not being able to harvest these fish for three years now has really not been a hardship to anyone. Locally, heavy winds and a few days of strong winds associated with Tropical Storm Andrea kept anglers off the water for a few days this week. This same tropical moisture has made conditions tough for roughly two straight weeks now. Stirred up water and stop and start rain showers certainly slowed our fishing down. Tarpon anglers probably had it tougher than anyone else this week. Strong south winds make fishing out on the beaches all but impossible. One of the few options to catch a tarpon has been soaking cut baits in a confidence spot somewhere sheltered in the sound. Areas around Captiva Rocks and south of Cabbage Key produced a few hook-ups this week along with sharks. Tarpon season is far from over and as conditions improve, tarpon will magically reappear again in all the usual places. Catch-and-release snook fishing was the most consistent bite going on for me this week. The passes, oyster bars and mangrove shorelines in the mouth of the river all held good numbers of snook. If you were in the right place with the right bait on the right stage of the tide, action was non-stop. The best bait for mangrove fishing has been live shiners while pinfish seem to be doing better in and around the passes. The search for shiners has really required more running than I can remember in years past. Finding clean water in the mid to upper sound has been the key to catching white bait, aka snook candy. The southern sound, with all the water coming down the river, has just not consistently held any good numbers of shiners although its loaded with all the pinfish you want. Starting off my mornings with a 20-mile roundtrip boat ride to have a live well full of perfect bait seems to make all the difference in the days fishing action though. Redfish action for me this week, despite great tides, was tough going. One here and one there was kinda how it went. No one place really seemed to hold a whole lot of them. Getting up to the middle and northern sound seemed to produce a few more fish than down south, but with our winds switching direction from day to day, the fish seemed to be on the move and could not get into a pattern. Fosters Point, Panther Key and Joselyn all held some fish on the higher periods of the tide. The key to getting a few redfish was to keep moving and really working a shoreline well. Both live and cut baits caught the reds, but these fish took a lot more work than usual this week and even when you did find them, it was only one or two out of a hole. As conditions slowly improve, our redfish bite should really start to go off.Capt. Matt Mitchell has been fishing local waters since he moved to Sanibel in 1980.

CROW Case Of The Week: Osprey Ambushed By Crowsby Patricia MolloyIt has been said that it takes a village to raise a child. In the case of ospreys (Pandion haliaetus), it has taken an entire island to ensure the prosperity of these majestic raptors. A Sanibel resident contacted CROW late last month after witnessing a hostile aerial assault on a young osprey by a group of wheeling and diving crows. The report indicated that the fledgling was injured. CROW immediately dispatched a first responder to the scene. Despite having an injured wing, the blood work and radiographs came back within normal limits, stated Dr. Helen, DVM intern. Fortunately for patient #1467, the wildlife clinics Hospital Director Dr. Heather Barron is one of 200 boarded specialists in avian medicine and is Past-President of the Association of Avian Veterinarians. Dr. Heather ordered several rounds of antibiotics, fluids to ensure proper hydration and strict cage rest in a secluded room for the badly bruised and battered youngster. According to The International Osprey Foundation, Sanibel naturalist George Campbell was devastated to discover a dramatic population decline of these native avians on the island. In 1974, with the assistance of Charles LeBuff of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service at J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, the first osprey platform was constructed. By the year 2000, six to eight more were built on private property, city land, in Ding Darling, on Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation land, and atop Lee County Electric Company utility poles. (Before that time, the electric company had systematically destroyed osprey nests because electrical outages were commonly caused by these birds of prey being electrocuted.) Between 1978 and 2003, the osprey population on Sanibel increased by 400 percent. CROW has been on the front lines of the fight to save ospreys by treating and releasing hundreds, if not thousands, of the native avians since it opened its doors in 1968. The wildlife clinics tireless efforts to educate the public about the necessity of protecting all native and migratory wildlife populations in Lee County has also aided in the conservation efforts. As soon as the injured fledglings wounds have healed and its ability to fly has been fully restored, this magnificent fish-eating hawk with the white-crested head will once again perform breathtaking aerial acrobatics in the skies over Sanibel. With the continued, combined efforts of local agencies and concerned residents, Lee Countys native and migratory wildlife will continue to prosper. Never underestimate the difference that you, as an individual, can make to impact change. Start by volunteering your time or donating money to support CROW in its mission to rehabilitate sick, injured and abandoned wildlife for present and future generations to enjoy. CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Inc.) is a non-profit wildlife hospital providing veterinary care for native and migratory wildlife from our local area. The hospital accepts patients seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mail donations to P.O. Box 150, Sanibel, FL 33957. Call 472-3644 or visit www.crowclinic.org. This osprey fledgling, patient #1467, was admitted to CROW with a wing injury suffered in an aerial assault by crows.

Wilkesiana) is one of several varieties of copper plants commonly used in South Florida landscapes. Its ornamental value derives from its bronze leaves and pinkish leaf margins, rather than the pretty tiny catkins of fuzzy flowers. The rich colors inspire other common names such as fire dragon and Jacobs coat. An evergreen native to islands in the South Pacific, it grows well only in Floridas most southern zones because it is sensitive to cold and needs plenty of moisture. A fast-growing member of the spurge family and a relative of the poinsettia, copper plant is usually used as a hedge. If untrimmed, it can reach a height of 10 feet or more with a spread up to eight feet, developing multiple trunks or clumping stems. The elliptical or oval leaves are four to eight inches long with serrated leaves. It will grow in full sun or partial shade, but the more sun the more intense the colors.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 14, 201322 Shell Museum Welcomes Summer Collections AssistantThe Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum welcomed Alex Goldin as one of two new Collections Assistant Interns for the summer. Collections Assistant Interns help organize, process and catalog the museums extensive shell collection. Goldin is from Stuart, Florida and is currently a senior at the Gulf Coast University, studying Environmental Science. He has had appreciation for the natural world from a very young age, and chose his degree to help him to learn more about it. While he has not yet made the decision on what he plans to do upon graduating, he is considering working in park services as a park ranger. He took a two and a half week field studies course where he worked and lived in Theodore Roosevelt National Park. He also volunteered with the Florida Oceanographic Coastal Center research department. There, he worked on a project dealing with how salinity changes due to the freshwater releases from Okeechobee are affecting oyster populations of natural and restored reefs. I really enjoy the dedication the museum shows toward education, and raises awareness on the importance of mollusks, Goldin said. I hope to take away a better understanding of mollusks and the role they play in their environment. Outside of work and school, Goldin likes to hang out with his friends, hike and travel. Whenever he has the time, one of his favorite activities involves going out into the wetlands surrounding the Fort Myers area. I find there is nothing more relaxing than a good swamp walk, he added. Goldin is the museums second Summer Collections Assistant, joining Matt Hart to help with its shell collection. Alex Goldin Birds Eye ViewDid We Get A Lot Of Rain Last Week?by Mark Bird WestallThe other day, I heard a tourist at Baileys exclaim to the server at the deli, Boy! You guys got a lot of rain the other day! I looked over at an old island friend of mine and we just gave each other a knowing smile. To someone that doesnt understand Sanibels summer weather, those few inches of rain seems like a lot. But that may have only been nature knocking on the door! Everything in nature tends to go in cycles the everyday tides, the seasons, the changing weather patterns. There are cycles that happen on a small scale and then there are those that happen on a much larger scale. Well, Sanibel has been going through a drought for the last several years. The Sanibel River, especially the Western Basin, has not been able to reach full capacity pretty much since Hurricane Wilma in the fall of 2005. And this winter, it has been particularly bad. Just before the recent rains began, I checked the water levels at Tarpon Bay Road and the East Basin was around a foot MLW and the West Basin was down to .6 MLW; the maximum height is 2.8 and 3.2 MLW, respectively. It was impossible to paddle a canoe in the West Basin because the chara a native freshwater plant of the Sanibel River filled the whole channel. I always say that paddling across the chara when the river is that low is like trying to paddle across a sponge. The fact that the river can draw down so low is really not such a big deal; its just part of the cycle of life. But for every low cycle, there is eventually the inevitable high cycle. So, this article is to remind those of us that stay on Sanibel throughout the summer season that it is about time for us to have a very wet rainy season! And the recent rains may be just the beginning. But I also want to educate the newcomers that, If youre going to live on Sanibel, youre going to get your feet wet! As I have written about before, Sanibel (the environmental community) has developed an Interior Wetlands Management Plan for the island that strives to reach an acceptable balance between having an efficient Storm Water Management strategy and a healthy natural environment. My first experience with Sanibels freshwater wetland system was during Labor Day Weekend 1977, when the island received just under 20 inches of rain in 48 hours. It took the island over a month for water levels in the Interior Wetlands to return to the height of the existing weirs. Today, those weirs have been rebuilt to hold the water at higher levels when we get the rains (but still lower than what the natural system historically allowed), but more efficiently lower the water levels in the entire system within a matter of days instead of weeks. The danger with such an efficient drainage system in place is that when we do start getting our normal summer rain patterns back, there are going to be some folks on the island that will start putting pressure on the city to lower the water levels back down to drought conditions. I hope that the city will politely, but firmly, explain to the complainers that if they didnt want to get their feet wet in the summer on Sanibel, maybe they shouldnt have bought a home in the Interior Wetlands. My biggest concern is that we will finally have a normal rainy season that brings the water levels back up to where it should be and then a storm will develop that looks like it could come in our direction; and the city will give in to political pressure to open the weirs before the storm actually hits us and let the water out; and then the storm never gives us the rain as predicted. The results of that scenario would be devastating for the freshwater wetlands on the island! The major point that must be understood by everyone living on the island is that even if a storm is coming towards us and actually hits us, we are going to have flooding, whether we open the weirs early or not! If we open the weirs too soon and then the storm misses us, the Interior Wetlands will suffer. But if the Management Plan is implemented properly and we only begin opening up the weirs after the flooding starts (which is the accepted, written policy), we will only be flooded for a few days, instead of the several weeks that occurred with the old system. And the Interior Wetlands will have the water it so desperately needs. The Freshwater Interior Wetlands needs to be flooded on a seasonal basis continued on page 23 Island PawsA Very Unique Pet Shop!

23 ISLAND SUN JUNE 14, 2013 From page 22Rain Last Weekin order for it to function properly. We are supposed to have water standing in some of our yards during the summer on Sanibel. Hopefully, the water will rise slowly every day with the evening showers. But quite often the island receives its much-needed rainfall in major tropical events. If minor, short-term flooding during such a major event is not allowed to occur, then the islands management plan for its freshwater wetlands is a farce. The city must remain firm in its commitment to preserving the Interior Freshwater Wetlands. Do we really want a healthy, functioning freshwater system on the island or are we just pretending? Im not saying it is easy for the city to keep the weirs closed until the storm is actually upon us. Many excuses can be used to justify making the politically safe choice and open the weirs when the storm is still a days time away. I am sure there are many citizens who would support that decision. I just think if we open the weirs too soon, we should remove the Vision Statement placed up on the wall at the council chambers and admit that the vision is dead. I hope that it is not!

And be courteous to drivers. If cars are waiting at a four-way or other intersection when you approach, stop and let them have their turn. Its the Sanibel way of treating each other with respect. SANIBEL BICYCLE CLUB Sanibel-Captiva KiwanisKiwanis Helps With Collegesubmitted by Eric PfeiferKiwanis International is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one child and one community at a time. Each year, through various island events, the SanibelCaptiva chapter of Kiwanis raises money to give back to the community. Our top objective is to support children by assisting them financially to help them reach their goals. Nothing can be more important to ones development than a good education. And at Kiwanis, we are proud to have handed out 19 scholarships and more than $22,000 to families in 2013. Fourteen local high school graduates received one-year partial scholarships for the 2013-14 school year. Additionally, five students received four-year scholarships. It brings us great joy to be able to assist these families every year. It is even more gratifying, however, when one of the recipients returns and gives us an update of his or her achievements. One recent graduate is Crystal Mansell, who is currently working for the City of Sanibel and was recently promoted to her current position of Administrative Services Technician. Crystal previously worked as the executive assistant to Judie Zimomra as well as the legislative assistant to City Council. Crystals story was especially heartwarming as she explained she is the only one in her immediate family to have received a college degree. When including her cousins, there are only five in the family of 53 with degrees. Crystal is very proud of her accomplishments, and she said is very thankful for all that we did for her over the last four years. On behalf of the Kiwanians, stories like this drive us to work harder so that we may hand out even more scholarships next year. Kiwanis scholarships are available to all Sanibel and Captiva residents, the islands private or public employees, and their family members. There are no age limitations, and scholarships may be applied to college or vocational training. Weight is given to needs, grades, community involvement and extracurricular activities.

With the perfect mix of professionalism and playfulness, Brook is bursting onto the scene to challenge what is thought about conventional southern rock. Her album Aint Gonna Mess Around reveals many sides of her as an artist. Together with her writing partner, Scott Krehling, Brook serves up some great storytelling with the raw emotional lyrics that give us just a glimpse at the road she has walked to get to the here, now and beyond. Not one for being too serious, Brook brings a sense of humor to her work and live performances that keep fans begging for more. Having played with heavy hitters like Seether, Sevendust and working on side projects with Shannon Larkin and Tony Rombola of Godsmack, she is honing in on her own sound. The new single, When The Lights Go Down, is set to release with a major splash soon. Equally comfortable on stage, a red carpet or quoting lines from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Brook is a walking contradiction. The moment you think you have her figured out, you will learn something mind-numbingly awesome about this one of a kind performer that will lead further down the rabbit hole.

The final performance of The Lillian Baxter Show is at 8 p.m. Thursday, June 13. Join washed-up TV variety show hostess Lillian Baxter (played by Vessels) and her third and favorite ex-husband Corky Weinstopper (played by Jay Schwandt) as she tells the stories of her long, arduous climb to the middle. This new comedy boasts hit after hit with tunes like Little Girl from Little Rock, Born to Entertain, The Boy from Ipanema and a string of songs from the Great American Songbook ranging from her early days in Hollywood, right up to the night of Lillians big concert in 1972. Lillian and Corky sing the night away with popular hits and rare gems by Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, Cy Coleman, Burt Bacharach, Michel Legrand and Steven Sondheim. Vessels also plays his most challenging role ever himself in An Evening with John Vessels, showing June 14 and 15 at 8 p.m., and June 16 at 4 p.m. Vessels, a veteran of stages all over the country and a couple around the world, is back on Sanibel for a limited time to entertain with his own brand of silliness and a program featuring songs from the Great American Songbook and beyond. Hell sing favorites by Irving Berlin such as Let Me Sing and Im Happy and I Love a Piano as well as Rodgers and Harts Johnny One Note. What night would be complete without Vessels also performs the entire Wizard of Oz all by himself. Pianist, arranger and composer Jay Schwandt accompanies Vessels with the hits you know and love, and a song or two that are bound to become new favorites. The show starts at 8 p.m. June 14 through 15, and 4 p.m. June 16. Tickets for both shows are on sale at BIG ARTS, 900 Dunlop Road, and Herb Strauss Theater, 2244 Periwinkle Way, or by calling 472-6862 or 395-0900. Adults are $30, children 17 and under are $5.

Say Summer Campersby Jeff LysiakOn June 7, Summer Day Camp participants at the Sanibel Recreation Center spent an afternoon matching their medieval jousting skills against one another in an inflatable arena, using oversized pillows and padded headgear in their competitive yet overly comedic battles. The jousting arena and sparring gear, provided by Lets Bounce of Fort Myers, was set up inside the rec centers gymnasium. Campers took turns picking out a partner to do battle with, climbing into the huge inflatable platform, stepping onto a raised podium in the center of the arena and attempting to knock their opponent off using only a gigantic stuffed cushion. More often than not, the jousters lost their balance simply trying to swing the cushion to and fro. Lets Bounce returns to the rec center on June 14 with an inflatable basketball jam arena, on July 5 with an inflatable obstacle course and on July 26 with an inflatable water slide. see more photos on page 8B The second and third graders from Sanibel Recreation Centers Summer Day Camp are eager to get into the inflatable jousting arena on June 7 photos by Jeff Lysiak Final Plans Unveiled For Golisano Childrens Hospitalby Jeff LysiakIncorporating elements of Southwest Floridas beaches and natural elements into its overall aesthetics, the final designs for the Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida were unveiled last week during the Lee Memorial Health Systems Board of Directors meeting held in South Fort Myers. We have had 151 meetings to get to this point with these designs, said Kathy Bridge-Liles, interim chief administrative officer. The work and efforts that have gone on to get to this point are really unbelievable. Dave Kistel, vice president of facilities and support services, told the board of directors as well as a standing-room-only crowd gathered at Gulf Coast Medical Center that the $242 million seven-story hospital is expected to be constructed by 2017. Groundbreaking is anticipated to begin in the spring of 2014.continued on page 4B Before unveiling the final design plans for the childrens hospital, kids presented the Lee Memorial Health System Board of Directors with sunflowers, balloons and gift bags photos by Jeff Lysiak Campus plan for the Golisano Childrens Hospital FLAG DAYFRIDAY, JUNE 14

The Mohawk Project: The Sinking WorldJust off the coast of Sanibel and Captiva, the third step in creating the art project of Andreas Franke has begun, currently accessible only to underwater enthusiasts. Austrian-born artist Franke has been in the advertising business for more than 20 years. He has worked for brands like Ben & Jerrys, Coca-Cola, Ford, General Electric, Gillette, Heineken, Nike, Visa and Wrigleys. His still-lifes and surreal effects are famous. In his photographs, every little detail is planned precisely; there is no space left for fortuity. Franke is a traveler. He travels the world and between the worlds. His job frequently leads him to several countries on several continents; so does his passion for scuba diving. In his pictures, Franke crosses the borders between fantasy and real life. His first underwater art exhibit began with photographing the decks of the USNS General Hoyt S. Vandenberg, sunk seven miles off the coast of Key West in 2009. After that project, he became absorbed in the haunting enchantment of the ship. Franke returned to Austria and created his new medium by populating the Vandenberg images with surreal visitors: 1950s teens waiting in line for movie tickets on the ships upper deck and a workman looking up from his lunch pail while seated on a cross-beam. The completed pieces were encased between panes of Plexiglas, placed in stainless steel frames, sealed with silicone to reduce marine exposure and hung by enormous magnets along the ship. It was a subtle process with great care taken not to disturb the ecological balance of the marine life around and not to damage the Vandenberg. Undersea growth began to adhere to the work and it became a living piece of art. After a second installation on the SS Stravronikita, Franke chose the USS Mohawk as his third underwater project. Between now and September 14, scuba divers have the opportunity to witness nature putting the final touches on Frankes creations. The best place to see art and nature working together is by viewing the images on location; the backdrop of the historic icon and the special lighting can only be found under water. With my photographs of sunken shipwrecks, I want to pull the spectators into unreal and strange worlds. Mystified scenes of the past play within a fictional space. Dreamworlds you can get lost in or that you can identify with. This creates a new and unexpected atmosphere. This work shows very much of myself, since I am always on the lookout for stunning themes to create new images never been seen before, said Franke. On Friday, October 4, the public (including land-lubbers) will have the opportunity to view The Sinking World at the Alliance for the Arts, 10091 McGregor Boulevard in Fort Myers. One year after it was sunk, the 165-foot World War II warship USS Mohawk is now a living reef, thriving with exotic marine life. Scuba divers can view Frankes images underwater with Scubavice Dive Center, which makes weekly trips to the Mohawk. It is located at 12600 McGregor Boulevard in Fort Myers. Call 481-4733 or go to www.scubavicedivers.com for a schedule of dive trips, to rent scuba equipment and/or to receive an Open Water certification in time to see Frankes artwork in its natural environment.

Each floor will have its own unique color/wayfinding scheme: Level 1: Lobby (Sun) Sun Level 2: Emergency (Orange) Shells Level 3: NICU (Aqua) Water Lily Level 4: PICU (Waves) Swim Level 5: Hematology-Oncology (Ocean Water) Wade Level 6: Bed Floor (Lime) Bloom Level 7: Bed Floor (Leaf Green) Gator Finally, following a drumroll on the boards conference room table, the design plans were revealed to a round of applause. A PowerPoint presentation of interior and exterior artist renderings of the new Golisano facility from the first floor lobby and reception area to a typical acute care inpatient room were included, along with the chapel, gift shop, laundry facilities, hematology-oncology unit and the Ronald McDonald House Family Room. Also revealed were the hospitals plans for a multi-faceted outdoor garden.

According to Kistel, the project will consist of a new clinical tower connecting into the east face of the existing hospital, relocating all childrens departments and expanding pediatric patient care services. The existing hospital will include some renovations to support the expanded ancillary services required for adult and pediatric population. The new 298,000-square-foot building will begin the permitting and bidding process during the fourth quarter of 2013, with approval anticipated by March 2014 and construction set to start the following month. The Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida is expected to be completed in the first half of 2017.

12B ISLAND SUN JUNE 14, 2013 No Surprise Three Stalwarts Of Division Champion Fort Myers Miracle Promoted To Double-Aby Ed FrankIt shouldnt come as a surprise that three stars of the firstplace Fort Myers Miracle baseball team have been promoted to the Double-A New Britain Rock Cats. Weve written often that Florida State League All-Star thirdbaseman Miguel Sano, the No. 1 prospect in the Minnesota Twins organization, and second-baseman Eddie Rosario, another top prospect for the Twins, would likely be gone from Fort Myers by mid-season. Just as soon as the Miracle clinched the FSL South Division first-half championship Sunday, the call came from on-high for Sano, Rosario and center fielder Angel Morales to pack their bags and head for New Britain. The first-half title for the Miracle is the first time since 2009 that the local team qualified for post-season play. The 6-4, 236-pound Sano, a native of the Dominican Republic, was hitting .330 with a league-leading 16 homers and 48 RBIs. In his last game with Fort Myers on Sunday, the 20-year-old blasted two home runs, including a tape-measure shot that sailed over the grandstands in left field at McKechnie Field in Bradenton. Rosario, 21, compiled a .329 average in 52 games with the Miracle. He also homered Sunday in his last Miracle game. A native of Puerto Rico, he played for Team Puerto Rico in the recent World Baseball Classic. Morales earned a long-awaited promotion to Double-A New Britain after spending portions of four seasons here with Fort Myers. He was hitting .297 in 55 games. Morales was drafted by the Twins in 2007. Two weeks ago, the Twins also promoted Miracle pitcher D.J. Baxendale, who had compiled a 7-0 record and a 1.10 ERA in his brief stay here. With these four key Miracle stars moved up, it will be a difficult task for Fort Myers to repeat as South Division champions in the seasons second half. However, it is likely that Bryon Buxton, the second overall pick in the 2012 Major League Baseball Draft, could be sent here from Low-A Cedar Rapids, where he was batting .341 with 41 RBIs earlier this week. He is listed as the Twins No. 2 prospect. The seasons first-half division champion Fort Myers started the week with a 10-game lead. After this weekends All-Star Game break, the Miracle return here Monday with a six-game homestand. Red Sox And Twins Draft Pitchers In First-Round Of Draft With the No. 7 pick in last weeks Major League Baseball Draft, the Boston Red Sox nabbed an 18-year-old two-way player from New Castle, Indiana. Trey Ball was drafted by the Red Sox as a pitcher, but the 6-5, 174-pound youngster also is highly regarded as a left-handed hitter and outfielder. He slugged 10 home runs and as a pitcher was 6-0 with a 0.76 ERA in his senior year of high school. The Red Sox will now attempt to sign the talented Ball as he also has a commitment to the University of Texas. It has been 20 years since the Red Sox had a draft pick as low as No. 7. The Twins had the fourth pick in the draft and took 18-year-old Kohl Stewart, who was the top high school pitching prospect in the country according to Baseball America. A native of Tomball, Texas, Stewart was a two-sport athlete and was recruited to pitch and play quarterback at Texas A&M. In his senior year of high school, he threw for 2,560 yards and 28 touchdowns. The 6-3, 208-pound Stewart was a First-Team Rawlings All-American, posting a 5-1 record with a 0.18 ERA in 40 innings pitched for St. Pius X High School.

Join now for all of 2013 with our summer social special, ONLY $450 for Families and $350 for Singles Application For South Lee Hospital DeniedThe Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) has denied Lee Memorial Health Systems (LMHS) application to build an 80-bed hospital in the Bonita Springs/Estero community. The hospital was proposed for 33 acres along Coconut Road between South Tamiami Trail and Via Coconut Point, adjacent to the Bonita Community Health Center. This is unfortunate news for Lee County. A new hospital located in the Bonita Springs/Estero corridor would provide a better distribution of hospital beds for all of Southwest Florida and bring additional capacity that is very much needed during the busy seasonal months, said Jim Nathan, president of Lee Memorial Health System. It would also significantly reduce emergency travel times for the areas residents and improve their access to acute care services. LMHS plans to file an appeal to the state division of administrative hearings. According to Florida law, the action must be filed with 21 days of the formal notice of the decision. This is unfortunate news because we believe the people of south Lee County deserve better access to comprehensive and compassionate care, says Nathan. We have not received official notice for the reason for the denial, but we do plan to appeal this decision and to fight for this hospital and for our family, friends and neighbors in Bonita Springs and Estero. The ruling came after NCH Healthcare System officially challenged LMHSs Certificate of Need (CON) application, on the grounds there is no need for additional hospital beds in the community. LMHSs application did not add hospital beds, but requested to de-license some beds at Lee Memorial Hospital on Cleveland Avenue and move them to a new hospital in Bonita/Estero. South Lee County is one of the fastest growing areas in Lee County and will expand by 2018 to hold nearly a third of the Countys total population. More than one-third of the population of Bonita Springs/Estero is over the age of 65, a group that is in need of hospital care more than the general population. The Bonita Springs and Estero communities have worked for many years to get a hospital built in their area. They provided a considerable outpouring of support during the CON application process, sending more than 2,200 letters encouraging AHCAs approval. They have repeatedly voiced their concern about how long it takes to get to emergency medicine because there is no hospital in their community. LMHSs Certificate of Need (CON) application requested the transfer of 80 beds from Lee Memorial Hospital on Cleveland Ave to the new south Lee hospital. Lee Memorial Hospital has licensed beds that are unused because of physical limitations in an aging building. Hospitals must be issued a CON to relocate beds from an existing hospital or to move a hospital more than one mile from its existing site.


ISLAND SUN JUNE 14, 201314B Journey To South America Part Vsubmitted by Patty MolnarAfter enjoying the cosmopolitan atmosphere of Buenos Aires, our group was poised for its next nature adventure, a trip to the fabulous Iguazu Falls. Located along the Argentine-Brazilian border, the Iguazu Falls at 1.7 miles hold the distinction of being the worlds widest waterfall. First, a short tutorial on waterfalls: Niagara Falls on the U.S./Canadian border has the biggest volume of water, while Victoria Falls on the Zambian-Zimbabwe border is the highest at 110 yds. and has the largest curtain of water. Initially, the rainforest in which Iguazu is located was in private hands in both Brazil and Argentine, and logging was being carried out at an alarming rate. Fortunately, more ecologically-minded heads eventually prevailed, and today Iguazu Falls is not only a national park, but also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Both countries have done a commendable job of allowing visitors to witness this unique site by employing sensitive measures. On the Argentine side, one arrives at the rainforest on an eco-train. From there, a series of walkways and lookout points allow the tourist to admire the falls. Unfortunately, our half-day on the Argentine side was the only rain we had on our tour, but it was a light rain that didnt spoil our walk. As at Niagara Falls, there was also an opportunity to travel under the falls in an inflatable boat. No one in our group availed him/herself of this adventure. The next day, we saw the falls from the Brazilian side. As Canada is to the U.S. regarding Niagara Falls, so Brazil is to Argentina regarding Iguazu, i.e. better views! The Brazilian side, which also had walkways from which to enjoy the more panoramic views, seemed slightly more commercial, but not in a particularly offensive way. After all, it must be hard to maintain a perfectly environmentally-sensitive atmosphere when everyone who visits South America wants to see Iguazu Falls. Because it had rained so torrentially in the days before our visit, the water coming over the falls was particularly voluminous. Later that day, we flew to Rio de Janeiro via Sao Paolo, and our time in that stunningly beautiful city will comprise the final installment of this South American tour.

E xit I sland Benji Needs A Home And An OperationBenji is a handsome 3-year-old domestic Bengal cat with a super sweet personality. He is in need of a home and an operation. PAWS of Sanibel found him on the causeway islands and, according to his microchip, he came from a Bengal cat breeder in Florida, but they were unable to track down the owner that adopted him. Bengal cats are popular because of their leopard-like coats. A lot of Bengals love to talk. They meow, chirp and yowl. So you can even talk to them and they will happily respond to you. They really love to spend their time with their families. In fact, Bengals are very similar to dogs. After his vet exam, they discovered he was born with very bad hip dysplasia that is causing him a great deal of pain and requires expensive surgery. PAWS is collecting donations to help pay for his operation. Donations may be made payable to PAWS and mailed to P.O. Box 855, Sanibel, FL 33957. Please call Pam at PAWS of Sanibel at 472-4823 for more information. Benji Purdy is missing and was last seen on May 20 in the Sanibel Bayous area. If you have any information, please call Pam at PAWS of Sanibel at 472-4823. Lost Cat Purdy


16B ISLAND SUN JUNE 14, 2013 School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My son is going to a high school next year that uses digital portfolios. Why is that important? Are they good for kids? Samantha G., Fort Myers Samantha, Traditionally, students have been completing assignments in school that were seen only by the teacher, graded and returned to the student. Sometimes, the work was posted on a classroom wall or in a school hallway, especially in elementary school. Many teachers kept portfolios of student work for report card conferences, and sometimes teachers instruct students how to build their own portfolios from their work. This is especially true in high schools. With more and more schools trying to go paperless or using the cloud, student work has become more easily shareable, accessible and more easily organized, so teachers are beginning to utilize digital portfolios or e-portfolios with their students. These digital portfolios have caused a huge shift in how teachers assign, collect and assess student classwork and projects. Here are some of the benefits of using digital portfolios reported by teachers who use them regularly. Opportunities For Peer-To-Peer Learning E-portfolios can foster a collaborative learning environment where some of the more tech-savvy students can guide and help others learn. These practices can build trust, offer problem-solving opportunities, and expand peer-to-peer learning on the educational lessons taught in the course. Increasing Research Skills Sorting through the heaps of information on the Internet is becoming a necessary skill. Students need to learn how to find reliable sources and how to conduct research in an organized and discriminating way. Appealing For All Levels Of Learners One of the biggest challenges for todays large classrooms and high student-to-teacher ratios is offering higher achieving students activities that wont hold them back while the teachers focus on students who need additional support. Online portfolio projects are an excellent way to allow learners of all levels to deepen their knowledge on a subject or project while maintaining a common ground with their peers. Develop Organization Skills And Support For The Future Instead of sorting through backpacks, lockers and desks with e-portfolios students are able to login to their online portfolios and find everything in an organized manner. They learn how to use tags for common subject areas and other organizational tools that help students sort through all of the information they have collected so that they can see the bigger picture of their work. Then they also have the ability to share their class portfolios with professional and personal contacts beyond the classroom. This can be a real plus when applying to college. Having a digital portfolio will be a positive experience for your son and serve him well educationally. 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.

SWFLCF Awards 73 ScholarshipsThe Southwest Florida Community Foundation recently granted 73 scholarships to local high school students and undergraduate and graduate students from Lee, Charlotte, Glades, Hendry and Collier counties. During the 2013 scholarship season, nearly 700 applications were received from high school and college students in the five-county area the foundation serves. According to Anne Douglas, director of programs for the foundation, a total of $266,800 was awarded in competitive scholarships and another $177,000 awarded in designated and outside committee scholarships, for a grand total of $443,800. Community Foundation scholarships were awarded to high school seniors who will continue their education at the university, community college or vocational/technical school level, as well as to undergraduate and graduate students continuing a postsecondary education. Thanks to the Southwest Florida Community Foundation, I am able to attend one of Floridas top universities and focus on my education without having to worry about monetary needs, said Layne Marshall, first-time scholarship recipient and recent graduate of Fort Myers High School. The scholarship has encouraged me to believe in my future just as the donors of the Richard and Marion Thompson Memorial Scholarship have, and I hope to return my appreciation by utilizing my anticipated degree in our local community. Marshall will be attending the University of Florida this summer to study environmental science. The Southwest Florida Community Foundation is celebrating its 36th year of supporting the communities of Lee, Charlotte, Collier, Glades and Hendry counties by connecting donors and their philanthropic aspirations with evolving community needs. With assets of more than $69 million, the Community Foundation has provided more than $55 million in grants and scholarships to the communities it serves. During its 2012 fiscal year, the SWFLCF granted more than $3 million to more than 100 different organizations supporting education, animal welfare, arts and human services. For more information, visit the Community Foundations website at www.floridacommunity.com or call 274-5900. College Accepts Governors ChallengeEdison State College accepted the challenge presented by Florida Governor Rick Scott that colleges offer bachelor degrees for $10,000. Starting in the fall of this year, Edison State College is offering degrees in Secondary Biology Education and Middle Grades Science Education with tuition under $10,000. In Edisons transformational approach to teaching, students will complete both ground and online innovative coursework. By offering these two degrees for under $10K, it not only assists the students who wish to keep their student debt low, but it also meets a critical shortage by responding to our communitys need for highly qualified educators in the areas of secondary and middle grades science, said Dr. Erin Harrel, Dean, School of Education, Edison State College. Edison State College wants to support the needs of our community, and we know that students here are receiving the best possible education and will help our future leaders continued on page 23B


17B ISLAND SUN JUNE 14, 2013 Several times a year, I receive a telephone call that goes something like this: Hello, my friend gave me your name and I really need your help, the caller says. What can I do for you? I begin. My mother needs a Will and a Durable Power of Attorney. And while Im thinking of it, she should also have a Health Care Proxy. So, it sounds like your mother needs a complete estate plan. Does she have any of those documents now? Sometimes the answer is No. Other times, the answer is Well, her documents were done 20 years ago and theyre not really relevant anymore. So, my next question is, When would she like to come in to visit with me? And heres the answer that I never want to hear: Well, thats the problem Moms in the Intensive Care Unit at Health Park. She suffered a massive heart attack and we dont know how much longer shell be with us. Oh my! Im sorry to hear that. Is she competent to discuss her estate plan with an attorney? Is she on any medications that might alter her state of mind? Theres usually a long pause on the line before caller says, Well, she does have lucid moments when she knows that were in the room with her. I feel sorry for people who get trapped in this type of a situation, but honestly it falls under the category of too little, too late. Procrastination is never a desirable trait, especially when considering something as important as creating the legal documents necessary to take care of yourself in the event of a health problem or distributing your assets to your loved ones at your death. While not one of us likes to consider the possibilities of our decline in health or even our own demise, these are realities of life that will happen to all of us. Its not a matter of if these sorts of things will happen, but instead it is a matter of when they will happen. The hospital ICU ward is not the ideal place to make these types of decisions. A major problem when working with a client who has recently been traumatized with a major health event is in determining whether they are legally competent to sign anything. In order to make a will, for example, one must be able to understand the extent and scope of ones assets, and how those assets are to be distributed under the terms of the will. It sounds like a low standard, but someone who is on morphine or other pain medications probably lacks capacity, at least until they recover somewhat. And for those who suffer strokes or other brain issues, they may never recover to the point of having capacity. Undue influence is another concern. When a patient is surrounded by certain loved ones when making a will, there is the chance that others who were not present and who may not benefit (or benefit as much as someone else does) under the will can claim that the patient was unduly influenced and therefore the will should be overturned. The law may actually favor the challenger as it presumes undue influence in these types of situations. Another problem is that not all estate plans are equal. The client may need a will or they may need a trust. That depends on a variety of factors including the types and amounts of assets that they own. When you create a will or a trust, there are many sub-issues that should be carefully thought through, including who is going to serve as your personal representative, trustee, agent under a durable power of attorney and health care proxy. Distribution issues must be considered, beneficiary forms conformed to the estate plan, as well as life insurance, estate tax and income tax planning issues to name a few. Sometimes one can successfully navigate these issues while in the hospital, or even under hospice care. Its likely going to cost a lot more in professional fees since everything is on a rush basis and the attorney and his team are going to have to travel to the hospital to review documents and obtain signatures. In short dealing with this scenario is a nightmare for the patient and for his family. Do yourself a favor make sure that you dont find yourself in this situation. If you or a loved one has procrastinated completing your estate plan, hopefully this little column will scare you straight into getting it started. Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at www.sbshlaw.com.

Take someone special with you. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Take a little restorative time out of your busy life. Go somewhere quiet this weekend. Or just close the door, turn on the answering machine and pretend youre away. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your advice might be much in demand by family and friends this week. But reserve time for yourself to investigate a project that could have some unexpected potential. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Workrelated issues demand your attention in the early part of the week. Family matters dominate Thursday and Friday. But the weekend is yours to spend as you please. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Try to keep your temper in check as you deal with someone who seems to enjoy showing disrespect. Losing your Leonine cool might be just what the goader hopes to see. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A heated confrontation needs some cool-off time before it boils over. Better to step away than to try to win an argument where emotions overrule the facts. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Someone very special in your life finally sends that reassuring message youve been hoping for. You can now devote more time to the tasks you had put aside. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Job pressures begin to ease by the weeks end, leaving you time to relax and restore your energy levels before you face next weeks emerging challenges. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Your spiritual strength helps calm a friend who might be facing an unsettling change in his or her life. An offer to help comes from a surprising source. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) By midweek you could learn some surprising facts about an associate that might cause you to reconsider a long-held view about someone in your past. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) One of those rare-for-you darker moods sets in in the early part of the week. But by Thursday, the clouds lift and youre back doing nice things for people in need. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Use that sharp Piscean perceptiveness to reel in more information about a promising offer so that you have the facts to back up whatever decision you make. BORN THIS WEEK: Although you prefer the status quo, you easily can adapt to change when its called for. On June 21, 1916, the controversial U.S. military expedition against Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villa brings the United States and Mexico closer to war when Mexican government troops attack U.S. Gen. John J. Pershings force at Carrizal, Mexico. The Americans suffered 22 casualties, and more than 30 Mexicans were killed. On June 22, 1937, Joe Louis wins the world heavyweight boxing title when he defeats American Jim Braddock in an eighth-round knockout. Louis was the first black heavyweight champ since Jack Johnson, who lost the title in 1915. On June 20, 1947, Benjamin Bugsy Siegel, the man who brought organized crime to the West Coast, is shot and killed. In 1945, Siegel had built the Flamingo Hotel in the middle of the desert, in what would become Las Vegas, with $6 million of the mobs money. When the hotel wasnt immediately profitable, he couldnt pay the money back on time. On June 17, 1958, a bridge being built to connect eastern and northern Vancouver in western Canada collapses, killing 59 workers. The Second Narrows Bridge was 175 feet above the water at its highest point. On June 18, 1983, from Cape Canaveral, Florida, the space shuttle Challenger is launched into space on its second mission. Aboard the shuttle was Dr. Sally Ride, who as a mission specialist became the first American woman to travel into space. On June 19, 1972, the U.S. Supreme Court rules against Curt Flood in Flood v. Kuhn, denying Flood free agency as a baseball player. Flood was trying to break the reserve clause that had tied baseball players to one franchise since the establishment of professional baseball. Today, free agency is as much a part of baseball as Cracker Jack and hot dogs. On June 23, 1992, Mafia boss John Gotti, nicknamed the Teflon Don, is sentenced to life in prison. Moments after sentencing, hundreds of Gottis supporters stormed federal courthouse in Brooklyn and overturned and smashed cars before being forced back by police reinforcements. It was architect Frank Lloyd Wright who made the following sage observation: A doctor can bury his mistakes, but an architect can only advise his clients to plant vines. If you take the free toiletries when you stay in a hotel, youre not alone; fully 92 percent of travelers do so. In a traditional wedding in Fiji, the groom is expected to present the brides father with a tooth from a whale, and the bride gets tattooed before the ceremony. You might be surprised to learn that lightning isnt confined to thunderstorms; the phenomenon can also occur in hurricanes, forest fires, volcanic eruptions and even serious snowstorms. Whats in a name? A great deal, it turns out, if youre talking about housing prices. Those who study such things say that a house on a boulevard is valued at over one-third more than the same house that has street in its address. Before the 1976 film Star Wars was released, the studio, Twentieth Century Fox, conducted some marketing research on the movie. The results? It was concluded that robots would turn off most viewers, and that under no circumstances should the word war be used in the title. Obviously, filmmaker George Lucas ignored the advice. Idi Amin may be best remembered as Ugandas corrupt and violent dictator during most of the 1970s, but from 1951 to 1960, he was that countrys heavyweight boxing champion. The literal translation of karate from the Japanese is empty hand. There are two ways of constructing a software design; one way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. The first method is far more difficult. -C.A.R. Hoare THIS WEEK IN HISTORY STRANGE BUT TRUE THOUGHT FOR THE DAY18B ISLAND SUN JUNE 14, 2013

21B ISLAND SUN JUNE 14, 2013 Superior InteriorsGet Into Decoratingby Jeanie TinchSet a mood! Accent space! Create your own style! By using a few tried and true decorating techniques, and spending a little time doing some preplanning, you can definitely express your own unique tastes and help shape the interior of your home. Professional decorators techniques for using texture, shape and pattern are often well kept secrets. But the fact is that these techniques are not that difficult. You can use elements of texture, shape and pattern to create winning combinations for your home. The key to your success is careful planning. Texture, for example, can be used for contrast. Can you visualize the texture combinations of bricks and silks? Texture can be found in drapery and upholstery fabrics, wall coverings, area rugs, tapestry wall hangings, metal sculpture and iron work accents, just to name a few. Its the artful combination of mixing unique textures together in a room that give that room its distinct personality. Utilizing pattern in your rooms overall design scheme can be just a bit trickier. A large pattern will make walls in a smaller room seem even smaller. Fabric patterns can add a strong accent in any room. Rich floral patterns in lively colors will add pizzazz and surprise when used in upholstered furniture pieces. Shape, too, will change a room. A round or oval area rug could add just the right touch to a living room seating arrangement. Window treatments can also be designed to add interesting shapes to your windows and, ultimately, your entire room. Careful planning lets you use the elements of shape, pattern and texture to their maximum effect. And when teamed with color, youve created a distinctive look for your home. Its fun. Its easy. And I guarantee youll be thrilled with your new look! Jeanie Tinch is an interior designer on Sanibel/Captiva Islands. She can be reached at jeanie@decden.net. Got A Problem? Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: I have recently been hurt by a relationship break up. I now feel anger. Is this normal?A: Anger is a very primitive emotion. We tend to internalize anger, one issue on top of another, until we cannot internalize anymore. Then we explode like a volcano, very often in response to some little irritation that triggers an explosive release way beyond what the actual issue would merit. Anger can be expressed in a variety of ways: hostility, frustration, passiveaggressive behavior, intimidation, intolerance, indignation, rage, bias and prejudice. Severe angry outbursts can even lead to heart disease and stroke. Anger results from expectations that were not met to our satisfaction. Think about it, we all have expectations. We put demands on ourselves and others. When those expectations are unmet, we are angry, angry at ourselves and others. What could have been done differently? How could I have been so stupid? How could he be so thoughtless? If you are experiencing anger, this feeling may be a result of unmet expectations that you have. You can help yourself by monitoring all of your expectations and trying to determine what internal need of yours is being projected onto another. Are you a caregiver or pleaser? If you are, and you know who you are, then you are a master at giving away pieces of yourself for a payoff you anticipate. This is all about operating from the ego, and the feeling of gratification is often very short. Pay attention to your expectations and how you can better manage them. Below, I have included author Neil Clark Warrens valuable work on anger styles.Note the styles and recognize any that seem familiar to you or someone you know. 1. The somatizer: This person is best described as someone who does not express anger. Instead, it gets suppressed and manifests in emotional and physical symptoms. In time, the body takes its toll and these unexpressed emotions carry a heavy price. Just some of the physical ailments related to suppressed emotions are TMJD, ulcers, migraine headaches, hypertension, liver problems and rheumatoid arthritis. Women tend to have this condition more than men. 2. The self-punisher: This is the person who feels guilty about feeling angry and tends to punish the self with obsessive-compulsive behaviors. This may manifest in the form of excessive eating, drinking, shopping, gambling, exercise and sex. 3. The exploder: The exploder utilizes anger mainly through intimidation.

22B ISLAND SUN JUNE 14, 2013 deaRPharmacistHelp For All Things Femaleby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: Please help me and my daughter. I have hot flashes; what is the best herbal supplement to help with that? Are there any home remedies for UTIs (urinary tract infections)? And finally, what can my daughter do for bloating during her monthly cycle? Ive heard that drinking more water (not less) helps, but that seems opposite of common sense. HT, Denver, Colorado One terrific supplement for hot flashes is sage. You can drink it as a tea, use the spice or for a stronger effect, take it as a dietary supplement like a liquid herbal extracts (which I prefer over capsules because you can adjust dosage). Sage has long been valued as an agent for fevers. The German Commission E approves of sage for mild stomach upset and excessive sweating. It could help people with night sweats related to tuberculosis or babesia infections. As for hot flashes, there was a study published in 2011 in Advances in Therapy found that sage helped reduce hot flashes by about 50 percent within four weeks, and 64 percent within eight weeks! Sage is well tolerated. I think it could safely be used with any medication, or substituted if your doctor approves. Moving on to this urinary tract situation. The burning sensation, frequency, urgency and pain often come out of nowhere. Chronic sufferers usually have an overgrowth of fungus, such as Candida. Probiotics, probiotics, probiotics! Chronic UTIs are often a sign of undiagnosed diabetes. Test properly for diabetes, including serum insulin and a thyroid profile (see my Diabetes Without Drugs book for complete testing information). Now, Phenazopyradine a red dye (medication) is sold over-the-counter and can temporarily relieve bladder pain. Baking soda is a popular, inexpensive home remedy for UTIs, heartburn and gout. Its not a substitute for medical advice. The recipe is one teaspoon baking soda in one cup of cold water, just mix and drink. Baking soda is very alkaline, so it neutralizes your acidic urine which is what causes the pain/burning during a UTI. My column is educational, its not medical advice Ask your doctor whats safe for you, and be aware, baking soda is contraindicated for people with high blood pressure, nor is it recommended long-term. About your daughters bloating... like many women, this annoying symptom provides the perfect excuse to wear sweat pants for five days straight. I would drink more water (not less), but Id avoid carbonated water and soda pop. If you really want to beat the bloat, limit gassy foods like beans and cabbage during that week. Reduce salty foods. If you crave them, thats a sign of low adrenals. Dont eat any foods that are sugar-free. Number one, I never recommend artificial sweeteners and number two, these sugar-free foods (even sugarless gum) might contain sorbitol and maltitol, and those are sugar alcohols. Theyre poorly digested by most people, so they increase your symptoms of digestive upset, diarrhea and bloating. 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. From page 21BDr. Conniemismanaged anger tends to manifest in road rage, acts of violence, explosive behaviors, hostility, foul language and abuse. This behavior is more common in men, although it is exhibited in women as well. 4. The Underhander: This type of person will seek revenge in a perceived socially acceptable behavior, especially in a work setting. Passive-aggressive behavior and acts of sarcasm (anger) are forms of underhanded behavior. People who use these forms of anger dont consciously realize that they are really giving their power away since the anger controls them. If you see yourself as exhibiting one of the above mismanaged anger styles, then the following exercise may help you learn to recognize and manage your anger in a way that will work in your favor rather than against it. Managing Your Anger In A Healthy Way 1. Can you select your mismanaged anger style from the list above? If so, what is it? 2. Pay attention to your anger and ways you monitor it. At the end of the day, write down the events that caused you to become angry. Estimate the number of times you felt angry. 3. Learn ways to de-escalate your anger, (e.g., breathe and count to 10, exercise, walk away from the situation that is contributing to your anger, talk about it, write about it). Write down how you de-escalated. 4. Identify something you are angry about. List several things you can do to lessen the anger and write down how you can rise above it. 5. Define a situation that angered you and write down the expectation that was not met. Now shift that expectation so it becomes more realistic and acceptable. 6. Forgiveness is a way to let go of anger and heal yourself. Write down the top three persons who you think have angered you and begin to take steps to forgive so you can move on and let it go. Indispensable Advice from Dr. Dave Get your copy of Dr. Daves Book at Sanibel Island Books and Gifts,1571 Periwinkle Way 472-5223 Eden Energy MedicineSafeguarding Your Breastsby Karen L. Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAMLLast week, you learned how to move toxins from specific Neurolymphatic reflex points that impact your breasts. The liver and stomach points are directly under the underwire of bras, so good rubbing releases the toxins that are trapped. Rubbing along the sides of the body releases toxins from the spleen and large intestine points and circling under the breast points below the nipples moves clogged energy from the circulation-sex points. By now, you should feel less sore and know that you are helping to prevent disease and potential cancer from taking hold in the cells impacting your breasts. Each of these reflex points is directly associated with a meridian-defined energetic pathways. By accessing these meridians, we are able to enhance our systems to flow freely and more smoothly. Each of the 14 meridians may be accessed at any time for a variety of reasons. One of the techniques discussed today flushes the stomach meridian, since this meridians pathway flows directly through the middle of each breast. Likewise, flushing the circulation-sex meridian, which begins on the outside edge of the breast near the armpit directly adjacent to the nipple, results in removing stale energy from the entire meridian and replacing it with vibrant new energy. What does flushing a meridian mean? It means tracing the entire meridian backwards one time and then tracing it forward three times. More information about meridians will be provided over the next several months. However, for now, suffice it to say that this tool acts like declogging a drain in your sink... only we are de-clogging your energetic pathways. Our hands carry electromagnetic and subtle energies, enabling you to influence the meridians circuitry. To flush either the stomach meridian, diagram below, proceed as follows using both hands on both sides of the body at the same time (it is best to place palms against the body in a wide path to enable more coverage of the flows): Step 1. The description of tracing each meridian as set forth is tracing it forward in its natural pathway. Flushing means starting at the end of the meridian and tracing it backwards. Step 2. Stomach Meridian Tracing Description. Place both hands underneath your eyes and draw your hands down to your jawbone. Circle up the outside edge of your face to the forehead to directly above the center of the eyes. Pull the hands down over the front of the eyes to the collarbone. Move the hands laterally along the collarbone until you reach the outside edge of the breasts. Pull hands down over breasts toward inside of waist. At waist, move hands toward hips and then move hands straight down the front of the legs and off the second toe. Step 3. Stomach Flushing Technique. At each big toe, begin by tracing the meridian backwards one time. Now trace the meridian forward three times (see Step 2 above) Once you learn to trace this meridian, it will take less than one minute to complete really! Flush the stomach periodically but daily if there are breast issues. Learn to flush circulation-sex meridian next week and how to chakra clear your breasts. Have fun with your energy. Next weeks topic is Safeguarding Your Breasts Chakra Clearing. If you have a questions for Karen, email her at ksemmelmanenergy@ gmail.com. Learn more at www.semmelmanenergy.com. EEM does not diagnose or cure illness, but working with subtle energies of the body has been shown to help many conditions. Tracing the Stomach Meridian, from Energy Medicine book, page 124


Dr. DaveBubonic Plagueby Dr. Dave HepburnEvery year, the cockles and cackles of my heart are warmed by that sensitive and touching film classic, National Lampoons Christmas Vacation. My sniffling and sobbing are replaced by shock, however, when the movie is marred by a savage demonstration of gratuitous violence. From deep within the welcoming branches of a Christmas tree, an evil menace lurks. As an unsuspecting Chevy Chase separates the tree boughs, a feisty squirrel leaps from its hideout and bounds about the house as the terrified Griswolds and guests all but destroy the holiday home in an attempt to avoid this reckless rogue of a rodent. Mothers faint, men scream, the fear is palpable. Finally, Snots the dog chases the poor squirrel through the front door and straight into a Seinfeld episode. How can these wee bushy-tailed guys cause this perfectly dysfunctional family to go so squirrelly? Perhaps Clark and crew knew only too well that squirrels carry more than their nuts in their cheeks, they just happen to be the leading cause of bubonic plague in North America! Each year 15 to 20 cases of bubonic plague are reported in the west, stretching from BC and Alberta to New Mexico. Fleas, infected with the bacteria Yersinia pestis, ride around on rodents, primarily squirrels. When a flea-bearing squirrel or rat dies of the disease, the flea flees the furry fella and finds refuge in the next closest thing to rats, namely men. Fleas jump a sinking rat like rats jump a sinking ship. They land on any human, who happens to handle the dead carcass of the squirrel, prairie dog, rabbit or mouse. OK, class, after our field trip to the forest, it appears that Susie caught a cold, Billy scraped his knee and Ralph has a slight case of Black Death. How many times must you be told not to play hacky sack with deceased rodents?! A few days after exposure, the patient develops the infamous flu-like symptoms, followed by painful, swollen lymph nodes known as buboes, or to be more medically precise, booboos. The bacteria set up shop in the blood system and the patient becomes septic. Several antibiotics can successfully combat Yersinia. The plague can also be directly transmitted via respiratory droplets courtesy of a coughing cat or human. This very nasty form of plague is known as pneumonic plague. The Black Death scourge wiped out a third of Europe (25 million people between 1337 and 1342) so quickly, that victims ate lunch with their friends and dinner with their ancestors. Prior to Europe, the plague romped through Asia, killing 30 million people. In total, the bubonic plague is responsible for the demise of 137 million humans. The last significant outbreak of plague was in 1994 in India, when disaster relief workers brought so much food that soon the rat pack and fleas invaded town, killing 300 people. Saddam and his happy harem of hellions know about the plague. Along with botulism, anthrax, ricin and smallpox, bubonic plague was one of the biological consequences of a Big Iraq Attack we prepared to contend with. But it would not be the first time that this organism has been used in biological warfare. In 1346, while busy besieging a Genoese city, the Mongol attackers were plagued with the plague. Having to rid their camp of the disease-riddled bodies, they catapulted their dead comrades over the walls and into the city prompting the Genoese to flee this flying flea market as the Old Spice Girls broke into the first known rendition of Its Raining Men, Hallelujah. The Japanese dropped plague-infested fleas out of planes over Manchuria in the 1930s, prompting the Manchurians to sing Its Raining Fleas, Hallelujah. But too many of the aircrew actually contracted the plague so the Japanese actually packed the fleas into a shell and dropped the F (flea) bomb, an act that created mass casualties and wide spread terror. Hopefully, most terrorists would realize that bubonic plague can nowadays be treated with simple antibiotics. But just to be safe, not neurotic, Im going to stash away some Tetracycline in my emergency medical kit right under my catapult.

ISLAND ISLAND PHARMACY PHARMACY(Voted Best Pharmacy on The Island 6 years)CARING FOR YOU AND ABOUT YOUPhone 472-6188 Fax 472-61442330 Palm Ridge Rd. #12, Sanibel 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, The Motor Vehicle Department told my husband that they would not renew his drivers license until he produced a satisfactory medical evaluation from his doctor. My husband is a vibrant 91-year-old and I am 14 years his junior. He does not need to drive as I can take him any place he wants to go. His doctor has told him he has blocked arteries and will need a coronary by-pass operation. This has not fazed him and he is eager to have an appointment with the surgeon and make a date for surgery. I am very much against him having this operation and think his driving days should come to an end. What would you suggest? Mildred Dear Mildred, Having by-pass surgery is not like having your toe nails clipped. This is big time stuff, not to be taken lightly. Your husband has been most fortunate and apparently enjoyed remarkable health. I think he should be very cautious about having the surgery and who knows, the surgeon may feel that he is not a good operative risk and wouldnt even consider doing it. The time has come for him to turn over the keys to you and you can be his designated driver. Lizzie Dear Mildred, Please tell me why blocked arteries is a valid reason to surrender a drivers license? I can understand surrendering a license if there have been multiple accidents, if memory and thought are impaired, if sight or response times are impaired, but not blocked arteries I smell age bias! I am sure there are hundreds of individuals 20 years your husbands junior who have the same health condition. Should they surrender their license also? If not, youre making a decision about your husbands license based on age, not driving ability. Surrendering a drivers license should be based on ones ability to drive, not a preconceived idea about what age.

Im a 3-year-old male white with brindle spots English bulldog mix. Im the most likeable guy youll ever meet! Take one look at my big brown eyes and you will be overcome with an incredible desire to hug me. Im also a wiggle butt. Its something I just cant control when meeting new people and other dogs. In fact, my tail moves like a wiper blade during a Florida downpour. Im very well mannered and walk nicely on a leash. So dont walk... run on down to LCDAS and ask for Tank, AKA Wiggle Butt. My adoption fee is $35 (regularly $75) during Animal Services Kitten Smitten adoption promotion. Hello, my name is Farra. Im a 1-year-old female brown tabby domestic short hair. The first thing you should know about me is that Im very into playing ball. I play my own version of soccer, basketball and tennis. If I were a human, I would play every sport involving some kind of ball that I could. Dont get the idea that Im single-minded, however, because I also love other cats and people... especially if they like to play ball! My adoption fee is $25 (regularly $50) during Animal Services Kitten Smitten adoption promotion. For information about this weeks pets, call 533-7387 (LEE-PETS) or log on to Animal Services website at www.LeeLostPets.com. When calling, refer to the animals ID number. The website updates every hour so you will be able to see if these or any other pets are still available. The shelter is open for adoptions from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The shelter is located at 5600 Banner Drive in Fort Myers, next to the Lee County Sheriffs Office, off Six Mile Cypress Parkway. All adoptions include spay/neuter surgery, age-appropriate vaccinations, rabies vaccination and county license if three months or older, flea treatment, worming, heartworm test for dogs six months and over, feline AIDS and leukemia test for cats, training DVD, 10-day health guarantee and a bag of Science Diet pet food. The adoption package is valued at $500. Farra ID# 560372 Tank ID# 562927 photos by squaredogphoto.comEmail your editorial copy to: press@islandsunnews.com
