Bailey, Jr., beloved father of the Sanibel community. Bailey died June 8 at age 92, having spent most of his life on the island as its champion, mentor and benefactor. The community turned out in droves in 90-degree heat to gather in the backyard continued on page 6 Susan Bailey, pictured with Billy Stallings, her son, was emotional as she spoke of her fathers final days Animal Tracking Class Offered At Ding Education Centerby Jeff LysiakWhen visiting the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel, lucky visitors may spot an alligator, a raccoon, an otter or even a bobcat. However, a guest who knows what to look for might be able to find evidence of all four of those critters and perhaps even more when visiting the refuge or even in their own backyard. Last Friday afternoon, a 30-minute program, entitled Oh Scat! & Animal Tracks, was presented in the refuges education center. Ranger and naturalist Jeremy Clothier shared the secrets about how to track animals through evidence they leave behind, including their footprints, shed skin, hair, teeth and bones as well as scat, which can reveal a lot of valuable information, too. Clothier discussed the three types of walking tracks mammals make, which include plantigrades, digitigrades and unguligrades. Plantigrades, which walk with a flat foot like humans, include raccoons, opossums, bears and skunks. Digitigrades are toe-walkers, like dogs, coyotes, panthers and bobcats. Unguligrades are nail-walkers that have hooves, like deer, wild boar, cows and horses. After explaining each type of track made, Clothier passed around silicone-cast molds of animal paws, claws and hooves to the audience. At the end of the PowerPoint presentation, there was a quiz in which the crowd had to match each image of a paw/ claw/hoof with what type of animal it was made by. The second half of Clothiers presentation included looking into literally the scat left behind by animals. Formulas for which type of animal made what kind of scat were divided into several subdivisions, including size and shape (sphere or cylinder).continued on page 14 During the presentation, Jeremy Clothier passed around silicone molds of different animals paws, claws and hoovesHurricane Committee Gets Prepared With Community Partners MeetingFISH of Sanibel, Inc.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 21, 20132 Spotlight On CHR: Susan Bluehssubmitted by Sue DenhamTo islanders, she is a familiar sight along Periwinkle Way on the shared use path: the small woman on a motorized scooter, a beautiful black dog trotting beside her. Susan Bluehs and Pearl (full name Black Pearl) make regular outings from their Community Housing & Resources home at Woodhaven, behind Bank of the Islands and close to almost everything they need. Bluehs, a registered nurse, impacted the lives of many island families, operating a home nursing care service, which she opened in the late 1980s. She has lived on Sanibel for 25 years, arriving as a newly-wed and staying on after her marriage ended. She created a satisfying life, working, making friends, volunteering in the community. More recently, she and her partner, Howard Fraher, shared a home. I loved to walk, she said recently, and I often walked ten miles a day. Plus, I used to ride my bike to Captiva and back. Everything changed in 2002 when Bluehs was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. For a while she continued to operate her nursing service, using a cane and eventually a walker. With Frahers help, she was doing OK. She considered selling her home and put in an application for a CHR rental unit. Then Fraher died suddenly, and the situation became urgent. Fortunately, the home sold, Bluehs qualified with CHR, and a unit was found for her on Mahogany Way, not ideal as it lacked an elevator. Before she had unpacked, suddenly a unit opened up at Woodhaven, with a handicap-accessible shower and the necessary elevator. Bluehs moved in five years ago and settled into a life that is as independent as possible, with Pearl, a trained service dog, who joined her four years ago as a two-year-old. Service dogs receive training for specific circumstances, understand commands such as fetch, pull (to close the door), get a particular item, and bring their unique personalities to the home setting. I am happy as a clam, Bluehs commented.

Bales of hay, old sepia photographs and the familys Model T Ford were on display and the back porch was filled with containers of sunflowers. It was a mostly upbeat occasion, a time to celebrate Baileys life and tell amusing stories and for youngsters in the family to reel off Frannyisms, such as Off like a herd of turtles and Holy mackerel! Porter Goss, Sanibels first mayor who went on to head the CIA under President George W. Bush, said, Everybody loved Francis and Francis loved Sanibel. It was an infectious kind of love and he wore it on his sleeve. He called Bailey the father of Sanibel and conscience of the community and spoke of the many contributions he made to the island and how he was the go-to guy for every good cause that came along. Jack Samler spoke of Baileys membership in the Lions Club and Sanibel Councilman Marty Harrity said Baileys 22 consecutive years on the council was a record. Son-in-law Richard Johnson, who owns Baileys General Store, said he was a relative newcomer to the island and that Bailey mentored and coached him. I have grown to love this community just like he has, Johnson added. Jane Bailey-Ward, one of Baileys five children, told of her dads likes and dislikes and his curmudgeonly sense of humor. He didnt like daylight savings time, cold weather (anything below 70 degrees), lemon and ice in his Sanibel water and undercooked vegetables. He didnt like the Grateful Dead either, or, from about 1960 to 1965, the Sanibel Causeway, she added. He was a gentleman, a simple man, humble, considerate to others. He died with dignity and respect in his own home on his own island, Bailey-Ward said. Jane Bailey-Ward, left, is greeted by wellwishers before the celebration of life for her father Francis P. Bailey Todays passing of our former mayor Francis Bailey marks the sun setting on the era of our communitys earliest days. Kevin Ruane, mayor of Sanibel We couldnt have been on the island very long; I was still quite small. It was an event at The Community House and a square dance was playing. There I was, a skinny little kid gazing wistfully from the sidelines. All I remember is that he grabbed me up, stood me on his shoes, and off we galloped, laughing like fools! That spurt of happiness has stuck in my heart all these years. That is how he lived his life in generosity and kindness, with great humor, much to the benefit of his family, friends and community. Judi McQuade Wu Francis Bailey with fellow Lion Bill Kyle A poem that Francis Bailey lovedCrossing The Bar by Alfred Lord Tennyson, 1889 Sunset and evening star, And one clear call for me! And may there be no moaning at the bar, When I put out to sea But such a tide moving seems asleep, Too full for sound and foam, When that which drew from out the boundless deep Turns again home. Twilight and evening bell, And after that the dark! And may there be no sadness of farewell, When I embark; For tho from out our bourne of Time and Place The flood may bear me far I hope to see my Pilot face to face When I have crossed the bar. It was a privilege to get to know Francis and to spend time with him. I could start naming his good qualities but the list would be too long to print. Ill just say that he was an extraordinary man and I will miss him very much. Emilie Alfino, who collaborated on Francis Baileys memoir

Then, in April, we form our Hurricane Committee of approximately ten volunteers who reach out to the community in hopes of identifying those who need information and assistance during the hurricane season, said Thomas. While we do not evacuate individuals off the island, we do provide a detailed hurricane packet which includes a home visit with each household on our list, reviewing shelter and hotel information, preparation procedures and what to do in the event of an evacuation. After gathering information from those households who have requested to be on the hurricane list, FISH makes sure all city officials the Police Department, Community Housing Resources, Lee County Emergency Management, Lee County shelter personnel, including those at the Special Needs Shelter in Fort Myers, and out-of-state family members are informed of individual plans. This is a collaborative effort to ensure, to the extent possible, the safety of our neighbors, said Director of Operations Maggie Goldsmith. We work very closely with the city officials each year to prepare for hurricane season. The Hurricane Committee service we provide is not only invaluable to our residents, but also to their families. So far this year, FISH has contacted a total of 45 households to introduce and provide the FISH hurricane packet service. In the event of an evacuation, FISH will notify everyone on the FISH hurricane list and remain in touch with each household until they return to the island. To be included on the FISH hurricane list and receive a hurricane packet, or to get additional information about FISH services, contact the Walk-In Center at 472-4775.

She was 73. Born on April 20, 1940 in Varberg, Sweden, she was the daughter of Oskar and Elin Nilsson. After attending university in Sweden, Margareta traveled to visit family in Jamestown, New York and chose to make it her new home. She moved to Fort Myers in 1975, where she worked as an accountant. Along with her late husband, Paul, she helped establish and operate a string of successful restaurants that include the Jacaranda, Iggy & Pauls Lobster House, Tarwinkles Seafood, Mc Ts Shrimp House & Tavern, and several Sanibel Steak House restaurants. Always a team, Margareta and Paul enjoyed extensive traveling both stateside and abroad, and they were the ultimate hosts, opening up their Sanibel home for many festive dinners and holiday gatherings through the years. Most of all, Margareta cherished time spent with family; her home always filled with laughter and love. She was a mentor and role model to everyone she touched, with her warm heart and strong values and ethics.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 21, 201312 DEBORAH JEANNE KLEINOWDeborah Jeanne Kleinow, 60, of Sanibel, passed away peacefully June 12, 2013, at Gulf Coast Medical Center after a long, courageous struggle. Debbie was born in Tulsa, Okla. on Valentines Day, 1953 to Agnes and Richard Reece, joining her 1-year-old brother Randy and followed by her younger brother Ricky a year later. Debbies early childhood saw the family move several times before settling down to an idyllic time in Brentwood, Mo., just outside St. Louis. As the only girl in a neighborhood of 15 boys, she developed a competitive toughness that served her and those she protected all of her life. It was in grade school that her native talent for visual art revealed itself in the form of sketches, paintings and sculptures. She graduated from the University of Missouri-St. Louis in 1975 with a degree in sociology. Her first passion, however, was art. She did art every day, working across many mediums, and she spent her lifetime finding new ways to bring her creativity to the world. She was also a social activist, supporting and participating in several causes focused on peace, social justice, equal human rights and assisting the less fortunate and those least able to help themselves. This strong sense of justice inspired much of her art. She had a big heart and got great joy from doing a portrait as a gift or designing individual cards to send to those she knew could use some encouragement. In 1978, she met the love of her life, Edward Kleinow, and they were married on May 10, 1980. For 33 years, they shared an amazing life together, celebrating triumphs and supporting each other through trials and tribulations. She is dearly missed by her husband, Edward; her stepmother, Jo Ann Reece; her brothers, Rick Reece (Carol), Randy Reece and Donald Reich (Marisa); her brother-in-law, Bill Kleinow (Jan); her sisters-in-law, Mary Ann Stewart (Mike), Elizabeth Hillstead, Leah Biggs (Tom) and Jan Niemann (Larry); her children, Veronica Bilicki (Mark), Lisa Sanscrainte (Jeff), Edward Kleinow (Kim) and Jonathan Kleinow (Natalie); and eight grandchildren. A celebration of her life will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, June 29 at All Faiths Unitarian Congregation, 2756 McGregor Blvd. in Fort Myers. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to All Faiths. St. Michaels Sends Packages To Relief Workerssubmitted by Ralph SloanWhen parishioners at Sanibels St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church saw the suffering and devastation brought by tornados in Oklahoma, they wondered what they could do to help. St. Michaels Rector, Rev. Dr. Ellen Sloan remembered that she had met the Dean of the Cathedral, The Very Rev. Justin Lindstrom, in Oklahoma City. In a phone call, the Dean said that the most immediate need was personal care items for the emergency workers, the volunteers from all over the country, and the people who had lost their homes. A bar of soap, face cloth, work gloves, hand sanitizer wipes, Band-Aids and granola bars... just some items that fill our bathroom closets were needed by the people who had lost their homes and their bathroom and the hundreds of workers who were trying to clean up. In a few short weeks, St. Michaels parishioners put together more than 100 one-gallon storage bags filled with personal care items that filled three large boxes sent off by Sanibels Pack-N-Ship at a special discount rate. Bags of items are still coming in, so another shipment will be made this week.

13 ISLAND SUN JUNE 21, 2013Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellSanibel-Captiva Rotary members are settling in at our new/ old meeting place at The Dunes. The club is still holding meetings every Friday at 7 a.m. and all are welcome to come for breakfast and hear one of our outstanding speakers. Retired Fort Myers Police officer Sgt. Ken Leach was our speaker recently. Leach is a 20-year veteran of the Fort Myers Police Department and served as a CIT (Crisis Intervention Team) trainer since 2005 (now a reserve officer). CIT addresses the need for crisis intervention education and is providing law enforcement officers with specialized training to respond safely and quickly to people with serious mental illness. Officers learn to recognize the signs of psychiatric distress and how to de-escalate a crisis, avoiding officer injuries, consumer deaths and tragedy for the community. In addition, CIT officers learn how to link people with appropriate treatment, which has a positive impact on fostering recovery and reducing recidivism. Leach demonstrated a physical and verbal example of the way officers might come into a situation not being aware of the mental condition of the person causing the disturbance. Come in ready to take charge come in fast, come in ready, verbally confrontational and physically get things under control. Thats what officers do fast and efficient and loud and that works in many situations, but not in cases involving people exhibiting mental stress. These people may not even hear what you are saying (auditory exclusion). They might not recognize the police officer as a person that has come to help (they may be delusionary), they may be autistic, they may be having a psychotic breakdown, they may be off their medication or on too many drugs. Since 2005, NAMI (National Alliance for Mental Illness of Lee County) has offered a CIT program for law enforcement agencies. Several hundred police officers have been trained and this is making a tremendous difference in community law enforcement. CIT deescalates confrontational situations in a humane fashion, which turns out to be the safest way for all concerned. Leach told us that wild commands are like pouring gasoline on the fire the situation usually escalates, as the mentally ill usually will react in a protective fashion, as if they are in danger. These people can be hearing voices, and loud sounds and noises can confuse them or overstimulate their brains. They feel threatened and react accordingly. Calming the situation is necessary. Sixty million Americans deal with some form of mental illness, most from some type of chemical imbalance. Shame and financial concerns are the biggest obstacles to seeking treatment for oneself or for a loved one. Contacting NAMI is a starting point. They are a resource center for information and will provide even more depending on the situation. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets at 7 a.m. every Friday at The Dunes Golf and Tennis Club, 949 Sand Castle Road.

15 ISLAND SUN JUNE 21, 2013 CROW Case Of The Week: Gopher Tortoiseby Patricia MolloyTwo gopher tortoises were admitted to CROW at approximately the same time after being run over by careless drivers. The wildlife medical staff at CROW, led by Dr. Heather Barron, treated one of the patients by gluing grommets to the defects on her shell and holding them in place with lacing. She is doing great now, moving around quickly [for a tortoise] and eating really well when she is outside grazing, said Dr. Helen Ingraham, DVM intern. Originating in North America, the gopher tortoise (Gopherus polyphemus) has shovel-like front feet and elephantine hind feet, which play a major role in its unique ability to dig very large burrows. As one of the few tortoises to build elaborate shelters, they are able to protect themselves from extreme temperatures, fires and predators. Gopher tortoises are exceptionally tolerant of their neighbors and are known to share their burrows with other species, including lizards, opossums, frogs, snakes, rabbits and burrowing owls. Some of these roommates are so dependent on the burrows that they will disappear if a gopher tortoise abandons its home. Thus, these special turtles have earned the nickname keystone species. Everyone, please be alert when you go out with her and make sure that her lacing looks good, cautioned Dr. Heather. We need to keep a close eye on it to make sure its not loose. I wanted to use a nonabsorbent suture material, but we are using donated suture material, because I had to use what was available. I was forced to used the longest we had available and its going to degrade eventually because thats what this type of suture material is built to do. So we have to be careful. It takes approximately four months for a shell fracture to heal and an additional six to 12 months for full recovery and removal of the grommets. If you would like to sponsor this extraordinary gopher tortoise on her long road to recovery, go to CROWs website and refer to patient #1313. Remember, none of the patients at CROW cannot afford health insurance to cover the cost of treatment. Please help the medical staff offer the best care possible by donating to the clinic. If you would like to know more about these fascinating creatures, go to CROWs Visitor Eduction Center on Monday, July 1 at 11 a.m. A gopher tortoises talk will be presented by a member of the CROW team. Learn why these animals are admitted to CROW hospital and how the wildlife clinics medical staff heals and rehabilitates the keystone species.

To that end, we work with various businesses and individuals to provide annual scholarships to students engaged in the study of conservation, biology and the environment. Seven donors sponsored scholarships this year. Some sponsors were on hand at the ceremony to present checks to the students. Brooke Giuliano, a Charlotte County resident working on a bachelors degree in environmental management in agriculture and natural resources with a minor in sustainability studies at the University of Florida (UF) in Gainesville, won the Richard Bailey Scholarship, named in memory of a longtime refuge volunteer. Ramsey Fisher, a Sanibel Island resident who just graduated from South Fort Myers High School and is headed to Florida International University in Miami to pursue a degree in marine biology, received the Dr. Andrew and Laura Dahlem Scholarship. The Dahlems live part-time on Sanibel Island and were honored with a named scholarship by one of their children, who wanted to thank them for their educational support. Nicole Cohen, a recent Cape Coral High School graduate headed to John Hopkins University in Baltimore to pursue a degree in environmental engineering, received the Hans and Leslie Fleischner Scholarship. The Fleischners are also part-time Sanibel residents whose love of the islands environment moved them to sponsor the scholarship. Calyn Lee and Zoe Skrivan accepted Tim Gardner Memorial Scholarships, established with donations made in memory of an avid and much-loved volunteer at the Ding Darling Refuge. Lee, who recently graduated from Riverdale High School in Fort Myers, will study marine biology at UF.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 21, 201318 Snook Season To Reopen; New Regs For Tarponby Capt. Matt MitchellThe big news on the water this week is the September 1 reopening of the Gulf of Mexico for snook season. The harvest of snook has been closed on our coast of Florida since 2010 when a major cold snap really impacted the population. When season reopens September 1, all bag limits and size restrictions will be the same. This is the one fish per person per day bag limit with the total length slot limit of 28 to 33 inches. The season will still have the two annual closures of December 1 through February 31 and May 1 through August 31. Even though I personally think snook season on our coast of Florida should stay closed for a few more years, this opening should really bring a big economic impact to us during September, which is usually one of our slowest months of the year. Many of my long-term clients have already begun to book September snook charters. I do think the snook population can handle the opening, but another year or two of closure would have really given us a world class snook fishery. Other items discussed at the Florida Wildlife Commissions June 12 and 13 meetings in Lakeland that will impact us are making tarpon and bonefish catchand-release only fisheries. This will go into effect September 1. Among other things, the new regulations will outlaw removing a tarpon over 40 inches long from the water and also only allow one tarpon kill tag per angler per year. Though this will result in fewer tarpon being killed every year, I think tarpon should be treated as our other gamefish snook and redfish and no matter how big the fish is, even if its a possible world record size fish, it should not be allowed to be killed. Also discussed at the meetings was a two-part proposal to modify the types of gear used to target tarpon in Boca Grande Pass. This issue will be brought back for a public hearing September 4 to 6 in Pensacola. The PTTS (Professional Tarpon Tournament Series) is totally against this and has threatened legal action on the FWC as these new rules will bring this made-for-TV tarpon tournament pretty much to an end or at least totally change the format of the tournament series. This is a 20-year-plus issue that has broken up long-term friendships and really taken the sport out of tarpon fishing in the pass. Personally, Im on the side of the tarpon and really hope the new gear rules for tarpon fishing in Boca Grande Pass go into effect January 1 as planned. The unsportsmanlike and aggressive boat handling method of snagging/flossing tarpon (jig fishing), then gaffing and dragging these 50-year-old-plus fish into the beach to be weighed, all in the name of TV, will hopefully soon be a thing of the past. The Boca Grande jig method of catching tarpon is not the accidental snagging of fish; this is the deliberate attempt to snag fish with tackle that is designed to only do one thing: snag fish while the fish are not feeding. It totally stresses out the fish during the most important part of their life cycle, while they are in the pass stacked up in huge numbers before mating. In my opinion, its unethical and all about money and greed for a very few people and not the majority. Hopefully, this black mark in the long storied and glorious history of tarpon fishing in Boca Grande Pass will soon be over. One thing that both sides of the issue do agree on is that the numbers of tarpon in the pass keep getting less and less every year. Something major needs to be done to protect this game fish and these steps, if followed through by the FWC, are a good start. Imagine you are on a tarpon fishing trip and the fish just dont want to eat any well-presented live bait. This often does happen and its all part of what makes the tarpon such a worthy angling opponent. After not being able to get a single bite, you take out a weighted treble hook and begin to cast at the rolling fish until you snag one. Sound sporting to you? The Boca Grande style tarpon jig is doing this exact same thing but is cleverly disguised on a bottom weighted circle hook as a jig. I would prefer not to catch a tarpon at all over catching an intentionally foul hooked fish. When it comes right down to it, as anglers we all have some conservationist in us and want what is best for the long haul of the fishery. Simply put, lets do what is best for the tarpon.

19 ISLAND SUN JUNE 21, 2013 Birds Eye ViewFrancis Bailey: Island Friend And Mentorby Mark Bird WestallLast week, Sanibel lost probably the one person that best represented what this community in paradise is all about. Francis Bailey was my friend but thats not saying much because everybody was Francis friend. I first visited the island in 1974, just after the citizens had voted to incorporate and gain some control over those who only saw Sanibel as a place where easy fortunes could be made. The islands natural beauty attracted me here, but what convinced me that this place was where I wanted to make my stand in life was the determination of the people I met here who believed that humans and the natural environment could actually co-exist. Of course, there were the professional naturalists on the island like Charles LeBuff, Dick Workman, George Campbell and George Weymouth who took me under their wings (no pun intended maybe) and taught me about the intricacies of the islands ecosystems, but I learned just as much from some of the non-professionals who were willing to take those natural concepts and weave them into the legal foundation of the newborn City of Sanibel. This idea that civilization did not have to result in the destruction of the natural world was very attractive to me. As a young boy growing up in Indiana, I had always dreamed of finding a place where all of the communitys inhabitants lived in harmony with each other and respected everyones right to exist; humans and wild animals alike. Sanibel was telling the world that that was exactly what it had in mind. And the person who taught me the most about the balance that had to be maintained if all of the islands residents were going to co-exist with each other was Francis. Now, when I do my spiel about coexisting with nature, I realize that I can get a little (little?) preachy. But with Francis, you never felt like you were being lectured. From his point of view, it was merely the logical way of seeing Sanibel. The natural landscape and the animals that lived on the island were part of what made Sanibel special. I tell people all the time about the almost 20 inches of rain we received in one weekend in 1977 and Francis surprised me by simply chuckling as he told me afterwards, Well, Bird, if youre going to live on Sanibel, youre going to get your feet wet! He had seen much, much worse before, and a little rain was just what was expected during the summer on the island. Then, when I served with him on City Council and folks would come in and complain about why the city wasnt doing more to remove all the terrible alligators, he would look over at me (because he knew where I was coming from) and say, I dont understand these people, Bird. Why are they so afraid of alligators? He had lived his life with alligators on the island. He probably ate some of them when he was young. But he knew the rules to follow that allowed him to live with them, and he also intrinsically understood that they were an important part of the islands natural balance. Yes, he was a businessman and there are some who now call Sanibel home that wish most of the tourist businesses on the island would go bankrupt, but Francis always wanted the island to have a balanced, healthy business community. But he also was a staunch supporter of island incorporation in order to protect Sanibel from primarily outside influences and he hated the idea of Sanibel becoming the next Miami Beach. I dont know if this is really true or not, but one story I heard years ago was that when Mr. Lindgren first proposed that the new Sanibel Causeway make landfall at the Bailey store at the end of Bailey Road, Francis flatly said, No way, no how! If the causeway had to come to the island, it wasnt going to come across his land. Francis wanted a healthy economic environment on the island, but he knew the causeway would change the island forever. Since his passing, Ive been hearing stories about how he always was there to help locals when they needed it and it reminds me of hearing complaints over the years from jealous folks about how much money the Bailey family has made selling off land for millions that they bought for almost nothing after the 1926 hurricane. Yes, the Bailey family has done well. But I think it is also important to remember all the land that they have donated, or sold for less than its market value, for the benefit of the community (like the Bailey Tract of the refuge and the Shell Museum). And something that I think most people dont think about: when the Baileys bought all that land after the 1926 hurricane, that land was considered pretty much useless. Farming was what Sanibelcontinued on page 20 N OT ONLY DO WE MAKE EVERY NIGHT SPECIAL, WE MAKE SPECIALS EVERY NIGHT. SHOULDNT EVERY DAY BE THIS GOOD?

Artists in all media from around the U.S. are expected to qualify for the Upcycle! Art Fest, which will be held next spring at The Community House and Sanibel Community Park grounds, located at 2173 Periwinkle Way on Sanibel. We are planning an educational and entertaining event that will directly benefit wildlife and its habitat at JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel, said Barb Lund, Upcycle! Art Fest committee chair. Besides demonstrating the importance of recycling and conservation, it will offer visitors opportunities to purchase one-of-akind pieces and even try their hand at it. The art fest, hosted by Ding Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge (DDWS), will tie in with Earth Day celebrations at the refuge the weekend prior with community-wide events. Art fest weekend will include an arts marketplace, recycled crafts make-and-take projects, demonstrations, healthy and sustainable food vendors, live entertainment and more. Artists wishing to register for the event, can do so at www.UpcycleArtFest.org. Any businesses or individuals interested in sponsoring or participating in Upcycle! Art Fest should contact Birgie Vertesch, DDWS executive director, at 292-0566 or director@ dingdarlingsociety.org. From page 19Birds Eye was all about in those early days and after the soil became salt-saturated from the storm, those old farmers fields basically had no economic value whatsoever. Nobody could have foreseen the value that the land would eventually have. But by buying that worthless land, the Bailey family helped those folks who had lost everything to start over again somewhere else. Francis was the embodiment of what it means to be part of the community of Sanibel Island. He was one of my mentors and I will miss him.

Plant SmartCreeping Oxeyeby Gerri ReavesYou might know creeping oxeye (Sphagneticola trilobata) as wedelia, a name derived from the previously accepted scientific name, Wedelia trilobata. Sources differ on whether this member of the aster, or daisy, family it is a native of Central and South America or of the West Indies. A perennial herb, it was introduced to Florida in the early 20th century as an ornamental. The groundcover was all the more useful because of its extreme salt tolerance. It escaped cultivation and today is listed by the Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council as a category-II invasive species. The mat-forming plant grows to about a foot in height, spreading via shallow rhizomes, or root-like underground stems. Its invasive potential and dense carpet-like form can crowd out native species in natural and agricultural areas. It has been reported that creeping oxeye can induce miscarriages in farm animals that graze on it. The best way to rid the landscape of this pest is tearing it out, roots and all. The dark-green opposite leaves are about two to four inches long, toothed and lobed with three main veins. The easily recognizable bright yellow flowers are about an inch across and usually appear singly at the top of the hairy stems. Pleated petals with toothed tips surround the disk, which contains eight to 13 florets. If given sufficient sun, the plant blooms profusely all year long. If youre enamored with the creeping oxeye, confine it to a container and ensure that the tiny seeds dont escape. It makes a lush trailing pot or hanging plant. It has several medicinal uses, including the treatment of cold and flu symptoms. Sources: The Guide to Florida Wildflowers by Walter Kingsley Taylor; Everglades Wildflowers by Roger L.

23 ISLAND SUN JUNE 21, 2013 Museum Debuts New Shell Of The Moment ExhibitThe Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum would like to invite everyone to come out and take a look at their new Shell of the Moment exhibit. The museum is currently displaying a very large Queen Helmet ( Cassis madagascariensis), collected by the late Dale Stingley off the coast of Nassau, Bahamas in 1958. The shell measures a whopping 370mm (approximately 14.5 inches). Mr. Stingley was a resident of Evanston, Illinois before moving to La Belle, Florida. He donated the largest collection ever received by the museum. Additionally, the exhibit will also feature images of live Queen Helmets taken last year by Anne DuPont and Ariane Dimitris in Palm Beach County, Florida. In my many years at the museum, I always have wished that I had met Nancy and Dale Stingley, said Jos H. Leal, museum director. Dales collection was flawless, and I am so glad the museum inherited it. For more information about the museum and hours, visit www.shellmuseum. org or call 395-2233.

Through the Summer Day Camp program at the Sanibel Recreation Center, two groups of kids (fourth and fifth graders as well as sixth through eighth graders) visit the club every week, learning the basics of the sport via first-hand play on The Sanctuarys driving range and putting greens along with when time allows individual instruction with Kist. The focus between the two age groups is interesting, said Kist, speaking after the younger group exited the putting green moments before the older group arrived for their lesson on June 12. You can really see a difference when theyre working as individuals and when theyre in a group. The older kids motor skills are a little more advanced, too. Theyve got a bit more hand/eye coordination. Kist, who previously worked at The Sanctuary back in the late 1990s, returned to the Sanibel course in January 2013. Its a great location a great club and a great opportunity, he added. During their 60 minutes of instruction, Kist divided the youngsters into two groups: half would begin at the driving range to work on learning how to properly chip a ball, while the others would be dispatched to the putting green to learn the basics of golfs short game.continued on page 2B Fourth and fifth grade Summer Day Campers from the Sanibel Recreation Center learned a few valuable golf lessons during their weekly visit to The Sanctuary Golf Club Brett Kist, third from left, divides the campers into two groups: half will begin at the driving range while the others will start on the putting green With youngsters watching, Brett Kist demonstrates how to properly chip a ball a variety of distances photos by Jeff Lysiak With camp counselor Billy Lees watching, Jack Mobley executes a perfect swing

ISLAND SUN JUNE 21, 20134B A Special Fathers Day For Red Sox Skipper John Farrell All Three Sons Selected In Draftby Ed FrankBoston sports fans may be pre-occupied with hockeys Stanley Cup finals, where their Bruins are battling the Chicago Blackhawks. But not to be overlooked is Bostons other team, the Red Sox, who approach baseballs mid-season clinging to first place in the American League Eastern Division. Remember, this is the team that was expected to finish last when the season began. When the week began, Boston was 42-29 on the season, held a two-game lead over Baltimore in the AL East and was tied with Oakland for the best record in the American League. Much of the credit for the Boston turnaround must be given to new manager John Farrell, who took over for cantankerous Bobby Valentine, who was fired after just one season when the team finished last in the division. A former Major League pitcher and Red Sox pitching coach, Farrell was lured to Boston from Toronto, where he had successful managerial tenure with the Blue Jays. He has righted the ship through his demeanor, his approach to the game and his strong relationship with his players. But last Sunday Fathers Day must have been even more special for the Red Sox skipper knowing that his son, Luke, had been drafted by the Kansas City Royals in the sixth round of the Major League Baseball Draft. Lukes draft selection completed the trifecta for Farrell as he was his third son to be picked in the draft. A four-year star pitcher for Northwestern, Luke Farrell had overcome serious health issues to continue a baseball career. Large tumors had been removed from his neck that thankfully were judged benign. The first Farrell son to be drafted was Jeremy, initially drafted in 2005 in the 41st round by the Colorado Rockies and in 2008 in the 8th round by the Pittsburgh Pirates. Like so many Minor Leaguers, he has struggled, but remains in baseball in the Chicago White Sox organization playing in the Carolina League. Second of the Farrell clan to be picked in the draft was son Shane, who was selected in 2011 by the Blue Jays at the time his dad was managing the team. Health reasons cut his playing career short, but he signed on as a scouting assistant for the Chicago Cubs. Three sons all three drafted in baseballs Major League Draft. John Farrell was a proud father on Fathers Day, and rightfully so. South Division Champions Miracle Home This Weekend The Fort Myers Miracle baseball team, South Division Champions of the Florida State League for the seasons first half, are home at Hammond Stadium this weekend facing Jupiter Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. The Miracle started the week with a 42-29 season record, holding a commanding nine-game lead as the first half of the season winds down. With several of their stars already promoted to Double-A New Britain, the Miracle will face a tougher challenge in the second half. SPORTS QUIZ 1.

7B ISLAND SUN JUNE 21, 2013 Red Sox Donate To Local CharitiesThe Boston Red Sox recently donated $10,000 to four local nonprofits as a follow-up to its 3rd annual Week of Service, a weeklong series of volunteering and giving back to the Southwest Florida community. In February, the Red Sox organized a four-location, two-day volunteer effort in which Red Sox uniformed personnel and front-office staff volunteered at Habitat For Humanity of Lee County, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast, Treeline Elementary for CCMIs Backpack Program and the Harry Chapin Food Bank. Red Sox volunteers were involved in a variety of activities at each location including the rehabbing of affordable housing for families in need, assisting children who may not have a strong male or female presence in their lives with homework, arts and crafts and outdoor recreational games, filling backpacks with nonperishable food items for local elementary students that otherwise might go without a meal during the weekend and fighting hunger by helping the food bank package food items that will be sent to feed the needy across Southwest Florida. Each of these organizations received a donation of $2,500. We have supported various organizations in Southwest Florida for many years, but in 2011, we increased our involvement to highlight the good work of Lee County organizations that, every day, are serving people here who are most in need, said Larry Lucchino, Red Sox president and CEO. We look forward to branching out and helping even more of our community neighbors as we grow in our new spring training home at JetBlue Park at Fenway South. In addition to volunteering at four local non-profits during this years Week of Service, the Red Sox held its 8th annual Evening with the Red Sox benefitting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Lee County raising more than $90,000 and its 20th annual Boston Red Sox Childrens Hospital Celebrity Classic raising $700,000.

March For Meals is a national campaign during the month of March, initiated by the MOWAA, which seeks to raise awareness of senior hunger and to encourage action on the part of the local community. This year, the MOWAA awarded 199 programs campaigns for their success, awarding more than $150,000 in grants for exemplary efforts, with just six of those programs receiving the Gold Plus Award. March For Meals is an exciting time for CCMI, as we get to highlight our Meals On Wheels program and share its efforts with the rest of the community, said Tracey Galloway, CEO of CCMI. This award will go toward those efforts and help us reach out to more homebound seniors in need. Senior Nutrition Programs across the United States, like CCMI, promote March For Meals in their local communities through public events, partnerships with local businesses, volunteer recruitment and fundraising initiatives. For many of our senior clients, the delivery they receive from their Meals On Wheels drivers may be the only social interaction they have during the day, which is another reason why its important we keep this program available and are extremely thankful for the continued support, added Galloway. The Meals On Wheels Association of America is the only national association and network dedicated solely to ending senior hunger in America. It is the oldest and largest organization composed of and representing local, community-based Senior Nutrition Programs in all 50 states and U.S. territories.

Bidders vie for the honor of creating and naming the latest philanthropic rum cocktail, which Doc Fords then features on its Name-That-Drink menu. Along with the winning bid, Doc Fords and the winning bidders each donate $1 to Childrens Hospital coffers for every named cocktail that is sold at all Doc Fords locations for one year. In the past seven years, Name-That-Drink has raised $200,000 for the SanibelCaptiva Cares charity. This years winning bid came from Dorothy and Ron Fitzgerald. The Fitzgeralds named their Hurricane Allies Island Punch for their daughter. Past Name-That-Drink winners have included Dan and Shirley Valentines My Rummy Valentine, Pete and Pat Allens The Happy Gator, and Ralph and Billye Curtis Rowdy Razorback. They continue to be listed on the Name-That-Drink menu along with all other past winners. Its a fun thing we came up with to be able to contribute in a creative way to the Cares cause, said Doc Fords co-owner Mark Marinello. Its such a great charity, and people love the idea of naming a drink. And drinking a drink that in the end benefits the health of our children. For more information, visit www.docfords.com.

10B ISLAND SUN JUNE 21, 2013 Goodwills Annual Teddy Bear DrivesGoodwill Industries of Southwest Florida, Inc. is seeking local businesses to hold teddy bear drives for Goodwills 7th annual Festival of Trees. Imagine a magnificent nine-foot tree with 200 cuddly teddy bears covering every inch it, with even more bears in baskets surrounding it. Then, imagine the joy on the faces of countless children when that tree is delivered to them. Join Goodwill in collecting new, stuffed bears for its annual A Very Beary Christmas Tree. Goodwills bear tree has been a staple of Goodwills annual Festival of Trees since the events inception in 2006. Made up from bears donated by the community, the tree is one of 25 beautifully decorated trees that is auctioned off at the Festivals signature event, the Tux & Trees Gala, on December 7. Auction guests gather around this special tree to raise money for The Southwest Florida Goodwill Foundation. The tree is then traditionally donated to a childrens hospital. The bear tree holds a special place at the festival, said Madison Mitchell, spokesperson at Goodwill. We wouldnt be able to do it without the support of local businesses and individuals. Seeing the tree come into the hospital, with all the bears donated by the community, it really brightens up the holidays for the families there. Goodwills goal is to collect 300 bears by November, in time for the start of the Festival of Trees on November 29 at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center in downtown Fort Myers. If you are interested in hosting a teddy bear drive, or have new bears that you would like to donate, contact Madison Mitchell at 995-2106 ext. 2213 or email MadisonMitchell@ goodwillswfl.org.

12B ISLAND SUN JUNE 21, 2013 Will Power Columnist: C rai g R. Hersch, BCS B oard Certi f ied Wills, Trusts & Estates A ttorne y ; CPAI Have Answers to Your Estate Planning uestions. Call: 239-334-1141 or Visit: www.sbshlaw.com 9100 College Pointe Ct. Fort Myers, FL 33919 As an estate planner, it is fascinating to me to see how some have acquired their wealth. When I began my career, many wealthy families had earned it the standard way, through careers, businesses and salting away a significant portion of their income. It is even more fascinating to see how the rules of the game have changed so very much in the last several years. By that I mean solid businesses and careers can implode by becoming obsolete overnight. The microchip and the technological advances it offers has changed our society. Those who keep up with technology and incorporate it into their careers and businesses prosper. Those who dont suffer. And thats because the microchip has caused many businesses and careers to fall victim to the commoditization trap. The commoditization trap, simply put, is the perception that the goods or services that your business offers are the same (a commodity) as any of your competitors. You see this most often today when shopping for goods. You might look in the bricks and mortar store but then go on the Internet to find whatever you are looking for at a cheaper price. And it isnt limited to goods. Services are being commoditized, too. Why should I pay the stockbroker his normal commission when I can trade for $6 on the Internet? Why should I pay the CPA to prepare my tax return when I can prepare my own for free using a website? Why do I pay an estate planning attorney when I can prepare my documents on the Internet for a fraction of the cost? But there is a way for both businesses and service professionals to break free of the commoditization trap. They must first recognize the trap exists and then embrace the same technology that produces the gap in order to create unique, personalized value that consumers will flock to. Where everything looks the same, people search for someone who can provide three things leadership, relationship and creativity. Those are elements that no computer can replicate. Leadership, relationship and creativity enhances the consumers comfort, clarity and confidence. Whether the decision involves which new car to purchase or how best to balance ones investment portfolio, those that can help the consumer zero in on whats most important to him or her will find success. What this means is that it is the consumer and not the producer that drives our economy. Large institutions whether they are government bureaucracies or private enterprise can no longer dictate how we live our lives. The old days of companies dictating what the consumer wants are over. Take the music industry as an example. When I was a kid in the 1970s, if I wanted to buy a song that I heard on the radio, I would have to purchase the whole album for $15 or so. That was a lot of money in the 1970s. Even though I only liked the one song but had to purchase the package this was the way that the music industry packaged its product. The consumer had very little choice. Moreover, the artist got paid a tiny fraction of the album price. The music labels, agents and distributors got the lions share of the profit. Today, if I hear a song that I like on the radio, I can go onto iTunes and purchase that song for $1.29 or less. I dont have to purchase the entire album. Moreover, the artist realizes a much larger percentage of the revenue. He or she can upload his work into iTunes without the need for a record industry label. This is a consumer-driven (bottom-up) economic model. The record labels arent largely the players in the industry anymore. Without the microchip this wouldnt be possible. Another example can be found in the travel industry. When was the last time that you used a travel agent to book an airfare, hotel or rental cars? Consumers largely drive the travel industry economy. You can easily research destinations, read reviews posted by other travelers and decide on your itinerary from the comfort of your living room sofa. All driven by the microchip. I can customize an automobile from the Internet, design my own running shoes or even order custom golf clubs and have them delivered to my home within a few days. The companies that realize we are in an individual-oriented personal design economy prosper. They have circumvented the commoditization trap by offering unique-personalized fare utilizing the same technology that drives their competitors out of business. These can be scary times for those who dont adapt. But they also offer unlimited economic opportunity for those who understand the challenges and are willing to use technology to their advantage.

Your restraint will pay off in a big way. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This week finds you in a sociable mood, ready and eager to enjoy the company of family and friends. Its also a good time to seek out and renew old friendships. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Patience is called for as you await a decision about that project youre eager to launch. Meanwhile, try to set aside more time to share with that special person in your life. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Avoid becoming involved in a workplace dispute early in the week by insisting both sides submit their stands to a neutral arbitrator. Things begin to cool off by Thursday. LEO (July 23 to August 22) It promises to be a busy but productive week for the Big Cat. The pace slows by Friday, allowing you to catch up on matters you put aside but that now need your attention. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A suddenly disruptive family situation is best handled with a cool, calm and collected response. Wait until things settle to let off all that pent-up emotional steam. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your practical side dominates the week as you reassess your finances to make some sensible adjustments in what you plan to spend and what you expect to save. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) An unexpected meeting with a former colleague opens some interesting possibilities. But you need to press for full disclosure before making a decision. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A recent flurry of activity eases by midweek, giving you time to readjust your disrupted schedule and make new plans for a weekend getaway. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Youre usually the one who gives advice. But now its time to open yourself up to counsel from friends who have your best interests at heart. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You might find resistance to your call for a full inquiry into a workplace problem. But by weeks end even the most rigid naysayers begin to come around. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A recurring problem surfaces once again. Maybe its time you used your creative talents to help you find a new approach to resolving it once and for all. BORN THIS WEEK: You are guided in what you do both by your intelligence and your emotions. An acting career would suit you quite well. On June 29, 1613, the Globe Theater, where most of Shakespeares plays debuted, burns down. The Globe was a round wooden structure with a stage at one end, and covered balconies for the gentry. The galleries could seat about 1,000 people, with room for another 2,000 groundlings, who could stand around the stage. On June 24, 1803, Matthew Thornton, one of New Hampshires delegates to the second Continental Congress, dies at age 89. Because he did not arrive in Philadelphia until September, he missed the initial approval of the Declaration of Independence, but later added his signature to the document. On June 26, 1911, athlete Mildred Babe Didrikson is born in Port Arthur, Texas. At the 1932 Olympics in Los Angeles, Didrikson won gold medals in the javelin and 80-meter hurdles. She had qualified for five events, but women were restricted to three events at the Olympics. On June 28, 1928, a 26-year-old Louis Armstrong and his Hot Five fellow jazz instrumentalists record a song called West End Blues. The technology didnt allow for playback, so when Armstrong and his Hot Five ended their session, they hadnt even heard the recording that is recognized as a critical influence, even on rock n roll. On June 30, 1936, Margaret Mitchells Gone With the Wind is published. While recovering from a series of injuries, Mitchell began writing the story of an Atlanta belle named Pansy OHara. A publishing company later convinced her to change the name to Scarlett. On June 25, 1950, armed forces from communist North Korea smash into South Korea, setting off the Korean War. The United States sprang to the defense of South Korea and fought a bloody war for the next three years. More than 55,000 American troops were killed in the conflict. On June 27, 1976, a factory storekeeper in Sudan becomes ill and dies five days later, marking the beginning of the first Ebola virus epidemic. By the time the epidemic was over, 284 cases were reported. Scientists still do not know what causes the disease to return or how to cure it. It was American industrialist Henry Ford who made the following sage observation: Whether you think that you can, or that you cant, you are usually right. It took Leonardo da Vinci four years to complete his iconic painting the Mona Lisa. If youre planning a trip to the United Kingdom this summer, you might want to add a side trip to Llanfair in Wales. The towns Welsh name is llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantsiliogogogoch, which means, roughly, Saint Marys Church in a hollow of white hazel, close to a whirlpool and Saint Tysilos Church and near a red cave. The sign at the railway station that has the towns name is 20 feet long. The next time youre aviating in Alaska, keep in mind that in that state its illegal to view a moose from the window of any flying vehicle. Whats in a name? Well, a great deal, it would seem -at least according to those trying to make it big. Joan Crawford was born Lucille La Sueur, Roy Rogers was Leonard Slye, and Dean Martin was Dino Crocetti. Issur Danielovitch (wisely) changed his name to Kirk Douglas, and Archibald Leach decided he preferred to become famous as Cary Grant. Before 1948 on the island of Bermuda, cars were forbidden. You might be surprised to learn that the cowboy hat was not as widespread in the Old West as might be assumed from watching old movies. The most popular headwear on the frontier was the bowler hat. The bowler had the advantage of stability; it wouldnt blow off in high winds. It was worn by Bat Masterson, Billy the Kid, Black Bart and Butch Cassidy. The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it. -Oscar Wilde THIS WEEK IN HISTORY STRANGE BUT TRUE THOUGHT FOR THE DAY18B ISLAND SUN JUNE 21, 2013


19B ISLAND SUN JUNE 21, 2013Superior InteriorsIdeas For Sprucing Up Your Homeby Jeanie TinchI know. Youre tired of looking at that same furniture arrangement. Or perhaps the wallcovering in the guest bathroom has seen better days. Maybe now is the very best time to give your space a fresh new lift. Here are a few decorating ideas that I think you should consider: Liven Up A Dull Floor Plan Try rearranging what you already own, Sometimes, moving furniture around a room or transferring pieces from one room to another makes a huge difference! Find Some New Angles For your furniture, of course. Try moving your furniture into more interesting positions. Rather than the traditional line of furniture around the walls, but some corners with sofas and armoires. Youll love the difference an angle can make. Light Up Your World If your room seems drab and dull, perhaps your lighting could use a face lift. Consider replacing an old shade, or installing new wall fixtures. Perhaps adding some new lamps will brighten up your world. What Do You Really Like? If unsure, then I suggest you review design books and home decorating magazines. When you find a photograph of a room that you really like, spend some time analyzing what it is that you truly like. Start A Redecorating Notebook Save pictures of your favorite rooms and favorite things. Make some notes as you study these photos. Ask yourself... why do you like this room? What would you change? How do the fabrics, colors or textures make you feel? By including the answers to these questions in your notebook, youll not only save yourself a lot of valuable time, but your design professional will be thrilled with the thought youve given to your upcoming project. Set A Realistic Project Budget And Completion Timetable If you have a special upcoming event thats inspired you to redecorate, then its important that the entire process start in enough time to meet your deadline. And I know that money is often a challenging topic. But knowing your budget really helps your design professional help you. Identify Your Focal Point Is it a fireplace, a beautiful view, a bed or an armoire? Your room arrangement should surround your focal point. Pulling furniture into attractive groups in the center of the room will not only add warmth to your room, but will be inviting to guests as well. Whats Your Theme? Selecting a theme for your room says something about you and your family. It also provides you with a way to display collections, themed items, or arts and crafts. Once your theme has been selected, youll be surprised how your choices and shopping decisions will be simplified. Wake Up Your Room With Color For instant impact, nothing beats adding color to a room. To find the right color for you, find something you adore in a color that makes you happy. Once your color decision is made, fabrics, upholstery artwork and accessory selections will be a snap! So, start off with a new fresh look. Everyone deserves to be able to say, No matter what kind of day Ive had, when I come home, I feel happy and uplifted. Jeanie Tinch is an interior designer on Sanibel/Captiva Islands. She can be reached at jeanie@decden.net. School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My tenth grade daughter just got her end of year grades and she did not do as well as she wanted. And she worked hard this year. She feels terrible about this and I am concerned. Of course Ill try to help her figure out why her study habits arent working, but are there other things that might help her? Megan F., Estero Megan, Im sure that your daughter is experiencing a variety of feelings, including disappointment, anger, guilt, confusion, sadness, physical sickness or even some level of hopelessness. Reassure her that it is not the end of the world, but it is time to figure out what is going on. Here are some ideas that might be helpful and that go beyond looking at the obvious her study skills and habits. Encourage your daughter to talk to someone outside the family about the situation. Talking to a friend, teacher or school counselor can be a great way of expressing feelings and getting advice. A teacher in particular might be able to help her brainstorm ideas to boost her grades. Encourage your daughter to examine her expectations and the expectations of others who are important in her life. It might be helpful for her to re-think her own expectations to make sure that theyre realistic and achievable. If she is feeling academic pressure from a particular person she should try to discuss it but without placing blame. For example, this phrase I feel like anxious/stressed when you can be a good opener for this type of conversation. Sometimes expectations are only focused on one outcome, and if you dont meet that outcome, you might feel disappointed or like youve failed. Usually there are a number of ways to achieve a goal. It might help her to talk to someone she trusts about what some different strategies might be. continued on page 21B viprealty.com VIP SALES ASSOCIATES ARE DEDICATED AND CUSTOMER DRIVEN.

Fully-trained, Expert Service Engineers State Certified Contractor EC0001147 Questions About Assisted Living At Shell Point?According to the Assisted Living Federation of America, more than one million senior adults currently live in assisted living communities. But locating and evaluating a facility can be a daunting task. When Shell Point introduced The Springs last year as its third assisted living facility within the community, we were overwhelmed with inquiries and recognized very quickly that people are searching for information, said Rita Southern, director of assisted living and resident services for Shell Point. Some of the inquiries we received were from people seeking information for themselves; however, the majority of people we talked to were the sons or daughters of senior adults who were concerned about their parents and their increasing need for daily assistance.To help these individuals in their search for information about assisted living, Shell Point created a team of experienced assisted living specialists, McKenzie Millis and Vivian Ciulla, who developed guidelines that define what consumers can expect from an assisted living community as well as suggestions for locating communities and a checklist of questions to use when visiting and evaluating a potential new home for a loved one. Assisted Living is the long-term care option that combines housing, support services, and health care, as needed, and is an excellent choice for seniors seeking an independent lifestyle, while also receiving the help they need with daily activities. Assisted living is appropriate for someone who needs some level of assistance with everyday activities, such as meals, medication management, transportation, or bathing. Communities typically offer dining, as well as social and wellness activities designed to support a well-rounded lifestyle in a residential setting. Some residents may suffer from Alzheimers or other memory disorders, or they may need assistance with mobility, incontinence or other challenges. The needs of each individual should be carefully considered when selecting the appropriate assisted living facility, said Southern. Thats where our assisted living specialists, McKenzie and Vivian, can be of best use. McKenzie Millis, Shell Points assisted living marketing specialist, is a Southwest Florida native and joined Shell Point Retirement Community in 2005. She offers a comprehensive background in multiple aspects of retirement living regarding how services and programs designed specifically for seniors can dramatically impact and improve quality of life. Millis is particularly attuned to the Southwest Florida community as it relates to seniors and is an active member of the Florida Assisted Living Association; The Sanibel and Captiva Chamber of Commerce; CAMEO; American Business Womens Association; and Zonta, where she serves as a board member at large. She is a Communications graduate of Florida Gulf Coast University. Vivian Ciulla is the assisted living resident relations manager for Shell Point Retirement Communitys three assisted living facilities: Kings Crown, The Arbor and The Springs. Ciullas experience as a Certified Pharmacy Technician, coupled with Core Training for Assisted Living Facilities Certification, allows her an especially informed perspective on all aspects of the transitioning senior lifestyle. Ciulla has been with Shell Point since 2000, and she has a diverse understanding of the organization from working in a variety of departments including pharmacy, resident relations, and case management. Ciulla brings eight years of experience in assisted living and a passion for improving the lives of the elderly with the services and care that assisted living provides. Many adults often find themselves in the unique role of caring for not only their own children, but for their parents as well. These individuals have numerous questions about the services provided and want to know when it is the right time to consider assisted living as an option, said Ciulla. For instance, it is likely that they have visited a number of assisted living residences, but often they dont know continued on page 23B McKenzie Millis Vivian Ciulla Business & Individual Taxes Bookkeeping Small Business a x es i nes s The Islands Full Service CPA FirmPersonal Service With Affordable Fees Call 239.472.1323 1648 Periwinkle Way, Suite D, Sanibel, FL.Weve Moved!

21B ISLAND SUN JUNE 21, 2013 Eden Energy MedicineSafeguarding Your Breasts Chakra Clearingby Karen L. Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAMLDuring the last two columns, techniques were learned to enhance breast self-care by rubbing Neurolymphatic Reflex Points and by flushing meridians. Remember that flushing a meridian means that you use your electromagnetic hand with palm against the body to pull energy along the defined meridian pathway, thereby promoting movement and health. Last week, flushing stomach meridian was discussed. This week, you will learn to flush the circulation sex meridian, which begins directly beside the nipple and continues down the arm to the middle finger. We want to flush the meridian to unclog the trapped stale energy that so easily forms. Additionally, you will learn to chakra-clear your breasts to pull stale energies from them. At the conclusion of todays column, you will have three more tools in your tool chest to maintain healthy breasts and/or to increase their health. To flush the circulation sex meridian, proceed: Step 1. The description of tracing the 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. Circulation-Sex Meridian Tracing Description (also referred to as nip to tip). Place the fingers of one hand on the opposite side of the body directly adjacent to the nipple. Move hand with palm down, up over the shoulder and then down the inside of the arm (the underside) and sweep the energy off the middle finger on the inside palm side of the hand. Switch and do the other side. Step 3. Flushing the meridian. Start at the middle finger and trace backwards one time. Trace the meridian forward three times per the description above. Donna Eden sees chakras over each breast. Chakras are swirling balls of energy that bath the area of the body with which they associated with healing energy. By using your hands which are vortexes themselves to clear the energy from the breasts, energy blockages are shattered, energy is encouraged to spin in the same flow and direction, leaving you feeling more centered and grounded. The technique is simple: Step 1. Use your left hand to make counterclockwise circles over your left breast with hand about six inches from the body. Move slowly in circles that are about 12 inches in diameter. Clear for about three minutes. Shake hands off. This motion removes stale energy like a rotor-router. Step 2.

22B ISLAND SUN JUNE 21, 2013 deaRPharmacistCan Your Pet Cause Illness? by Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: I read your article on Bartonella, and how pets can indirectly give it to you. What other diseases do pets transmit? Are there antibiotics? SJ, Orlando, Florida Great question, since pet lovers dont connect their illness to pets, but zoonotic infections are certainly possible. And yes, there are antimicrobials but the exact kind is based upon your illness. This will freak some of you out: Cat Scratch Fever Dont play rough with kitty or let him lick your wounds because about 40 percent of cats are a natural reservoir of Bartonella henselae, an organism thats also transmitted by ticks. Growing up, my rather savage cat named Sugar attacked me all the time. I was lucky! If youre not, cat scratch disease causes swollen lymph nodes, headaches, fatigue, low appetite and/or fever. Its almost impossible to eradicate and can cause life-long problems: anxiety, panic attacks, seizure disorder, encephalopathy, memory problems, fog, chronic fatigue, joint pain, rheumatoid-like pain and foot pain. Ive archived an article about this at my website. Hookworms This intestinal parasite has mouth hooks and latches on to your gut. Puppies and kittens may have it until theyre dewormed, but thats not 100 percent insurance so be careful changing the litter box, or picking up dog poop, or letting your child play in sandboxes. Hookworms are passed by the fecal-oral route and can cause skin rashes, intestinal bleeding and abdominal pain. Toxoplasma gondii, another cat and dog-transmitted parasite is associated with schizophrenia. Lyme Disease Its not a zoonotic disease but its epidemic, so it gets honorable mention. Borrelia burgdorferi causes Lyme and it travels with other pathogens like Bartonella, Babesia or Rickettsia. Pets carry ticks which jump on you and bite (you will never feel it, and rarely see it). Hundreds of symptoms can occur, causing you to get misdiagnosed with any one of 300 disorders, mainly autoimmune or fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue. Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis Virus (LCMV) If you love your guinea pig, hamster or mouse, watch out. This virus is transmitted from rodent urine, droppings or saliva. No bite is necessary, LCMV can be transmitted into your mouth, nose, eyes or broken skin. When I was 18, I had a pet hamster named Tootsie (a left-over from my science project). He was cute and fuzzy, so I know these critters are hard to resist. Still, dont kiss them, and use gloves when cleaning their cage. Salmonellosis Salmonella is associated with contaminated food, but your pet dog, cat, horse, turtle, snake, gecko or farm animal can pass salmonella into their feces. Touch it and you could get it. Great time to remind parents to keep an eye on your kids at the petting zoo! Symptoms include diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps. If it gets into the blood stream, its bad news. Parrot Fever Caused by an organism called Chlamydophila psittaci, this can cause diarrhea, low appetite, weight loss, weakness, difficulty breathing and eye infections. Its dangerous and, in some cases, fatal. 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.

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, My husband is rarely sick, but this day he had an upset stomach, so he just had fluids. He had a restless night and didnt sleep much, so he decided he would take a sleeping pill the next night. He continued on the fluids, and then decided to take a sleeping pill and go to bed early. A couple of hours later, he had to go to the bathroom. He must have become confused because he bumped into the TV and it fell off the table and he fell into the window. I, of course, woke up and guided him into the bathroom. A couple of hours later, he needed to go to the bathroom again, but this time he wasnt so lucky and I didnt wake up. The injury he received from falling into the tile bathtub has taken months to heal and he also became very depressed during recovery. Please tell other seniors to be very, very careful when they need to take sleeping medications. Levinia Dear Levena, Most seniors do not sleep for eight hours straight, without having to get up and go to the bathroom that just seems to be part of the aging process. If you take a sleeping pill, you may wake up and be confused from the effects of the drug and problems develop as you have described. We older people must be very careful and only take sleeping pills when all other lifestyle changes have been exhausted, such as not having caffeine, nor late night exercise, not eating for two hours prior to retiring and sleeping in a cool room. Lizzie Dear Levena, Sleeping and anti-anxiety pills are very dangerous because of the associated risk of falls. There are many deaths associated with falls and the complications of falls. If your physician is reluctant to order sleeping medication, he is practicing good medicine. A good rule to remember: pills dont cure everything and for every benefit there is also a risk.

23B ISLAND SUN JUNE 21, 2013 Dr. DavePersonality Disorderby Dr. Dave HepburnCarl, I comment to the psychiatrist sitting beside me at a medical conference I recently attended (for some odd reason, these guys seem to relish sitting by me). Is it not true that just about everyone could be slotted into one personality disorder category or another? Sort of. We could all be described as having one style of personality or another, with only the degree of the personality trait determining if it becomes a disorder. You, for example, I would classify as a compulsive personality with... Why you incompetent Freudian snake oil nincompoo... No, this is true of most doctors. But a personality style only becomes a disorder when it is taken to the extreme. Then it begins to interfere with day-to-day functioning. But by its very definition, those with personality disorders dont believe they have a problem. They think they are OK, its everyone around them that notices the problem. Oh, its out there alright. Ive noticed that my office staff, my hockey team and all of their families seem somewhat unstable. I see. While two to three percent of the population consistently demonstrate a full blown personality disorder, the rest of us need to be wary that our particular personality style doesnt deteriorate down the continuum into a personality disorder. Certain triggers such as an illness, (particularly neurological illnesses), stress and even some medications may convert our style or trait into a disorder. For example, someone you might consider sensitive may become ill and slide down that continuum to develop an avoidant personality disorder. A conscientious person may become an obsessive-compulsive during university exams. While personality traits are often genetically programmed, a dysfunctional personality disorder may develop permanently in a child who is the product of chronic moderate neglect or abuse. Once ingrained, personality disorders are notoriously difficult to treat. It is not easy to treat someone who thinks everyone else is the problem. These people are able to thwart any attempt at therapy. They are difficult people with disturbed, extreme and rigid views of themselves and the world about them. Want to get the family stirred up tonight? Try gathering the clan around and determine which personality trait/ style each fits into. That way, when Uncle Engelbert goes squirrelly one day while on Dilaudid after bowel surgery, you can predict which personality disorder you will be dealing with. To further foment family feuding, grade each player from 1-10 based on how close their trait is to becoming a disorder. But if they are at all like my family, remember theyll all be a little odd. Rise above it. Personality Style? Disorder Vigilant? Paranoid (unwarranted suspicion, envy, distrust in motives of others) Devoted? Dependant (submissive and clinging behaviour, fear of separation) Mercurial? Borderline (very unstable in interpersonal relationships, impulsive) Self-confident? Narcissistic (lack of empathy for others, need for admiration) Dramatic? Histrionic (over reactive, theatrical behaviour and seductiveness, attention seeking, excessively emotional) Aggressive? Explosive (impulse control, temper problems) Adventurous? Antisocial (disregard for rights of others, sociopathic) Conscientious? Obsessive compulsive (excessive concern with conformity, inability to relax easily) Solitary? Schizoid (timidness, introversion, social detachment) Leisurely? Passive aggressive (negativistism, passive resistance to demands and resposibilities) Sensitive? Avoidant (hypersensitive, social inhibition) Self-sacrificing? Self-defeating (If I suffer enough and someone sees it, Ill be loved) Idiosyncratic? Schizotypal (eccentricity of behaviour, discomfort with and reduced capacity for close relationships) Listen live or call in to Dr Dave on his fun yet informative radio show, Wisequacks, heard each Sunday at 5 p.m. at www.cknw.com.

Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: Is there a relationship between women, hormones and stress?A: As a therapist, I am all too familiar with women trying to be the heroine of their own lives. Todays modern woman is exhausted, mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually from living in a vigilant state of fight or flight. I witness women from 18 to 80 who live with an attitude of I can handle this, only to discover that the bodys resources have become depleted from overload. They end up with adrenal fatigue as a result of being chronically in the state of fight or flight, which often leads to insomnia, chronic fatigue syndrome, digestive issues, lowered immune function, depression, anxiety and low libido. How a woman feels and functions is a strong indicator of her success and of her ability to accept and deal with what life presents. When I have an initial consultation with a woman, I take a thorough history of physical illness and disease. Then, I begin to take a survey of the emotions she has been experiencing. What has meaning and purpose in her life? What makes her happy, unhappy? Why is it so difficult for the average woman to admit that it is virtually impossible to be all things to everyone? Physically fit, beautiful, successful in her career and as a mother and wife. To say nothing of being highly sexual and sensual as well as forever young. Is it because that is what women were taught and what they are exposed to everyday on TV, and in magazines and other media? We need to realize that these are only the hopes and expectations of others who what us to behave the way they think we should behave and consume the goods and services they want to sell us. Women tend to put others before themselves. They nurture others, and unconsciously, they want nurturing in return. When it is not reciprocated, there is a let down, a disappointment, another unmet expectation. If a woman is not nurturing herself, this sets up a dynamic for lack of healthy relationships with others. So for all of you women who are reading this, take note that you have an authentic self that has always been there. It just happened to get buried with all the day-to-day stuff. She is there waiting to emerge again. If you have any of the symptoms mentioned earlier and you constantly feel overwhelmed and on overload, then speak to your doctor about having your adrenals checked. If you are suffering from adrenal fatigue, you have already set the stage for a compromised immune system, insulin resistance, hyper or hypotension and metabolic disturbances. It is essential you get proper nutritional counseling since diet is very important to improving your overall health. Proper exercise is another component of reducing the effects of stress as well as being a benefit to our bodies. Without proper monitoring of these health issues, women are at risk of allowing stress to make their physical issues worse.

I may be small, but I am a Top Dog! I love to be cuddled and promise to be your best friend. I am a little shy when I meet strangers, but quickly warm up to those who care. I walk very nicely on a leash and love to play outside. My adoption fee is $75. Hello, my name is Sandie and I am a 2-monthold female gray tabby domestic short hair. Its kitten season and I am one of many babies hoping to be adopted this month. I have been in foster care and Im ready for my forever home now. Thanks to the great care I received, I know how to use a litter box, play well with other kitties, and Im very sociable with people (I love to give kisses). I dont really know much about dogs, but Im so little I probably wont mind sharing a home with one. My adoption fee is $50 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 6 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. Sandie ID# 566927 Ace ID# 508597 photos by squaredogphoto.com Benji needs a home. He is a handsome 3-year-old domestic Bengal cat with a super sweet personality. PAWS of Sanibel found him on the causeway islands and, according to his microchip, he came from a Bengal cat breeder in Florida, but we 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. Please call Pam at PAWS of Sanibel at 4724823 for more information about Benji. Katie is a beautiful grand champion abyssinian spayed female. Her coat is fawn in color. She is 8.5 years old and needs to be the only cat in the household. PAWS is looking for a good and loving home. She is okay with dogs and tolerates children of all ages, as she is loving to all, except other cats. She has been in four homes so far, all with resident cats, and it has not worked out. Katie is 6.5 pounds and must be an inside cat, as an owl or other predator could easily pick her up for dinner. She has beautiful orange eyes (called pumpkin) and is very clean. She has one medical problem, and that is that she was bred so small that her sinuses get irritated easily, and she sneezes. She has medication to treat this ailment. Katie is also microchipped and deserves to be the only princess in the household. Contact PAWS volunteer Carolyn at 472-1922 for more information about adopting Katie. PAWS Pets Benji Katie
