ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 20132 Granddaughter Remembers Life At Shore Havensubmitted by Emilie AlfinoOne of the wonderful things about working at a historical museum is learning from visitors. One lucky day, museum staff received a letter from Mary Goodnow, granddaughter of Daisy and Ross Mayer, the original owners of Shore Haven. Here are her recollections: A friend of mine toured your museum and sent me a photo of my grandmothers home. In case some of my recollections of living in Sanibel would help your fine efforts in creating Sanibel back in the 1940s, Ive jotted down some of my recollections. Daisy Richards Mayer and James Ross Mayer were my grandparents. My grandfather died before I was born but my total love of my Grandmother Mayer is still very potent to me. I spent one winter at Grandma Mayers home in Sanibel with Aunt Gaykie (Grace Mayer Symroski) bringing me there while her newly graduated West Point husband was flying dangerous missions in the South Shore Haven as it looks at the historical village today Shore Haven heading to the historical village in 2012 Shore Haven in the 1970s with owners Doris and Robert Potts, who were careful to preserve the original details of the house Thanks to Master S ponsor: The Sanibel Cap tiva Trust Company H onorary Chairpers ons: Ca nne lla & Mike Mullins A nd to all our other sponsors, auction donors 'Give to Give' donors and everyone else who helped with our event.

3 ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 2013Pacific during WWII. I missed a lot of kindergarten that winter, or all of it for all I know because I remember nothing about it except having air raid drills. Living in Sanibel was treasuring nature: all sorts of tropical birds I still have double lion paws and angel wings and many other shells collected at first light after a storm fishing after digging for fiddler crabs my aunts diving for oysters off the pilings of Grandmas dock raccoons attacking metal and locked garbage cans, sometimes succeeding in getting into the garbage. And what a noise! I remember when Baileys store delivered, I think twice weekly, ice covered in sawdust for the icebox and a big jug of drinking water which they lowered into a cradle which made it relatively simple to lower the bottles mouth to fill pans and bottles of drinking water to be stored in the icebox. I remembered the property having crushed shells rather than grass. Also, Vaseline was applied on every chrome part of my grandmothers huge car. One could have been sea sick driving maybe less than a mile from Grandmas house to Baileys store the road was one big washboard. Grandma Mayer taught me to look out the upstairs bathroom window while brushing my teeth. At night I thought the stars were almost close enough to touch but in the morning something even better flamingos cavorting around in the back pond I had a great friend, Jimmy, who lived with his parents behind Grandmas house. I realize now they worked for Grandma. Also adored was Jimmys mother, who kept us well provisioned with her cooking. She had such a practical way to speak. My favorite: Miss Molly, look what you done done. Still makes perfect sense to me. My Aunt Ellie (Elinore Mayer Dormer) is the author of The Sea Shell Islands. She was another adored aunt. Her specialty for spoiling her niece was making elegant clothes for my doll. If I could help (the museum) with any details, such as the kerosene wall lights when the generator shut down, my grandmothers wood stove in the front hall and another one, a big cooking stove in the kitchen. Perhaps you have heard the story why the front door with a fan light was built as the back door? My grandparents planned eventually to have that washboard road removed and the road built behind Grandmas house. I believe that is where the road is now. I took many more trips to Sanibel but nothing could compare with that special winter when I was five. What prompted all the above words was a friend sending me a photo of my grandmothers home which was generously donated to the museum by the present owners of Grandmas home. And I love seeing that Uncle Martins home is there and restored (Morning Glories). Lastly, my love of islands has not abated one bit. Please excuse the length of my (letter). Seems the more I thought of our beloved Sanibel, the more I remembered. Thank you for your wonderful efforts in recreating so much of Sanibels history. The Mayer family.

The commission voted 6-0 with Tom Krekel absent to approve the revised resolution, adding a new section to the land development code. It will now move to the city council for final action. Gibson said once a distressed property is identified, the citys code enforcement officer will verify the complaint and if its confirmed, notification of violation will mailed to the owner. There would be a time frame to bring that property out of its distressed condition. Once the property owner resolves the issue, the code enforcement officer will re-inspect and if it is resolved the case will be closed, Gibson said. If the property owner does not resolve the issue, a notice to appear would be mailed and the case would be scheduled before a hearing examiner, he added. Penalties could include fines and fees. City Attorney Ken Cuyler said fines could be up to $250 a day for an ongoing problem. In a situation where fines arent going to do the trick, you can go to court and get an injunction, prosecute as a misdemeanor there are myriad ways, he said. Owners who cannot afford to make the repairs can work out an abatement plan with the city. The problems with neglected properties arose during the recession and subsequent real estate bust but are now tapering off, Cuyler noted. Some distressed properties are in foreclosure and owned by out-of-state banks and can take longer to resolve. However, Vice Mayor Doug Congress, who was in the audience, said bankers he has talked with try and address (such) issues proactively and take these ordinances very seriously. He also said municipalities throughout Florida have passed this type of ordinance as a result of abandoned properties spawned by the real estate downturn. At the councils direction, vacant lots are not included in the proposed ordinance. Currently, the Land Development Code does not does not require buildings and structures to be maintained or repaired unless they reach the point of being declared unsafe or dangerous. The ordinance, which contains definitions for declaring a property distressed, would provide the city the means to intervene earlier on in the process. It will also help to protect property values, stabilize neighborhoods and prevent dangerous and unsafe building conditions from occurring in the first place, city officials believe.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 201310 How Our Blind Son Searches For Shells On SanibelIn 2009, our family decided to come to Sanibel Island after seeing it on the Travel Channel as one of the best shelling places in the world. We came and experienced Sanibel for the first time. We loved the low key atmosphere of the island, the beautiful beaches and the shells! We learned to read a tide chart quickly and would head out at low tide to find our treasures. We have been back now four times; each time we learn more about shelling and enjoy it more. The different thing about our family from others is that my 15-year-old son, Gabe, is legally blind and loves to shell. From the first time we came here when he was 10, hes jumped right in and found some amazing shells. He loves water and just has a harmony when hes in it. The thing that amazes me as his mom is that he isnt scared to feel his way across the bottom of the ocean. He mostly uses his hands and spends a lot of time under water, being tossed around by the waves... and he loves every minute of it. Hes found sand dollars, whelks, olives, pear whelks, fighting conch, horse conch, banded tulips and more. He comes up from the water and I am usually not far away and says Mom, is this a good one? or Mom, is it empty? Many times, he knows hes got a good one and will say Look at this one! He also will daily ask When is low tide? or as a teenager just waking up around noon asks Did I miss low tide? His other enjoyments on the island are usually catching a movie at the theater, watching cable TV (which we dont have at home), and playing family games in the condo. Gabe has been blind since he was 5 years old due to a rare genetic disease that claimed the life of his older brother. Gabes life was saved by his younger brother who does not have the genetic disease. Though he has had many struggles, he always comes through and makes the most of every situation. Our family chose to come to Sanibel Island because we wanted a place both our boys could enjoy. Our first trip, Gabe was 10 and his brother 8; Gabe out-shelled us all. Now its a challenge to see who gets the biggest shell and who gets the rarest shell. Its hard to go places like Disney and other family destinations because places like that require sight to enjoy a lot of it and are usually very crowded, which is not a good fit for Gabe and our family. While it is a blessing to be able to see the beauty of Sanibel Island, Gabe can still use his other senses to enjoy his time there, too. We just spent June 15 to 22 on the island and, as always, we enjoyed it and are thankful to have been able to come back again.

This summer camp opportunity for kids who have completed grades 3, 4 or 5 will take place at Riverside Retreat, located near Alva, Florida. Along with all the fun camp things including campfires, hiking, swimming, cabin life, crafts and singing the kids will focus on how they can be world changers. Pastor Daryl Donovan and Childrens Director Kathy Cramer will team up to challenge and encourage the young people with examples of world changers from the Bible and throughout history. One day will involve a hands-on service project. Another day will provide a creative gift making to reach out to someone in need. Registration for the three nights and four days including food, lodging, materials and a free T-shirt is $120. Limited partial scholarships are available. For more information and registration, contact Kathy Cramer at 472-2684 or email kathy@sanibelchurch.com.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 201314 Help FISH Restock Its Food Pantry For The SummerAs season winds down on the islands, the FISH of Sanibel, Inc. Food Pantry always sees an increase in demand during the summer months. Many households have their hours cut back because the off-season need for employees decreases. That, combined with the fact that children are out of school and not benefiting from the school breakfast and lunch program, brings more clients to our food pantry to fill the gap, said Maggi Feiner, executive director of FISH. The demand is at its highest in the summer months, and we find it difficult to keep it well stocked during this time. Anyone wishing to help is welcome to bring their unopened, unexpired, perishable or non-perishable food items to the FISH Walk-In Center, Baileys General Store or Bank of the Islands. Donated food items can include canned goods, cereal and beverages. FISH is particularly in need of canned fruit, mayonnaise, cereal, ketchup, juice, kid friendly snacks and Boost and Ensure drinks. Unopened non-food items such as soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, paper towels, toilet paper, laundry detergent, softener, cleaning products, diapers, wipes, pet food, sun block, etc. are also needed. The pantry also accepts frozen or refrigerated items such as meats, fish, vegetables, fruits, dairy products, juices, etc., and is always in need of dairy products, particularly milk. These items have to be brought in to the FISH Walk-In Center during summer hours of operation, Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. We are always grateful for the support of our fellow islanders, said FISH President John Morse. Their generous donations always make a difference in the lives of people who benefit from FISH and the Food Pantry. The walk-in-center is located at 1630B Periwinkle Way, Sanibel, phone 4724775, or log onto www.fishofsanibel. com.

15 ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 2013CROW Case Of The Week: Fishing Lures: A Cautionary Taleby Patricia MolloyA Double-crested cormorant (Phalacrocorax auritus) was admitted to CROW after swallowing a very large fishing lure. The hook had penetrated not only the birds esophagus, but also the membrane that surrounds its heart, causing massive inflammation. I had to remove the entire lure. We were in surgery for hours, said Dr. Heather solemnly. It was certainly a highly-technical surgery. Cormorants are commonly seen on Sanibel, standing ashore or on pilings, wings expanded, drying them in the breeze. The reason behind this behavior is that their feathers do not possess the waterproofing oil of other seabirds. The lack of oil, however, enables them to dive to remarkable depths for fish. Fortunately for the patient, an electrocautery unit had recently been donated to the wildlife clinic. Donations really make a difference, because this bird probably would not have survived the surgery without this piece of equipment. I was performing microsurgery because its esophageal cavity is so small. I was able to cauterize the incisions I had made with the electrocautery unit. A lot of highspecialized equipment went into making sure he survived: an IV catheter, IV pump fluids, a doppler to monitor heart rate and blood pressure, and what we continued on page 19 The 15 millimeter fishing lure that was swallowed by the cormorant The Double-crested cormorants name is derived from Latin for sea crow S D Taste of the Islands Peoples Choice Award Winner Seven Continuous Years Lunch & Dinner 472-8138 SANIBEL MARINA SANIBEL THRILLER CRUISES SANIBEL THRILLER CRUISES

ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 201316 Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellOur recent guest speaker Sanibel Historical Museum and Village Board President Dorothy Donaldson, along with Museum Manager Emille Alfino came to update us on the outstanding year ahead for the Village. Looking backwards while looking forward can be a little tricky. Knowing where you have been and where you want to go can present a challenge for many of our wellrooted and growing non-profits on the island but none more than the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village. This year the museum will be celebrating its 30th anniversary and when you (and you must) visit the property you will not only get to step back in time as far back as the mid-1800s here on Sanibel but this year will be able to experience the transformation and restoration of Shore Haven. This 1924 Sears Roebuck mail-order kit home was purchased and constructed on bay front acreage by original owners Ross and Daisy Mayer as their family residence. It was also the childhood home of their daughter, Ellie Dormers, founder of the Sanibel Historical Museum. Last year the historic prefabricated home and caretakers cottage was donated to the Village by Terrance and Brenda Cassaday. Although the structures had been modified and modernized over the years the original house and cottage are very much intact. Only the original structures were moved to the village last year at a cost close to $200,000 and future plans are to use these buildings for a new welcome center, museum gallery, underair storage space, office space and small catering kitchen area. The faade will be restored to its original design and interior space and outside entrance will be modified only slightly to meet current commercial building codes. The Museum and Village is a must see for all of us. A stroll through the grounds and buildings will give you a feeling of being transported back in time to the real Sanibel, a rural and peaceful place, where life was hard but community spirit was alive and well. Visit the seven historic buildings moved from their original island sites to the and restored to their original design. Learn the history of the island and visit the old Bailey Store to recapture an experience of bygone days. The City of Sanibel owns the property where the Museum and Village sits and subsidizes upkeep of the property and provides monies for the salaries of two museum employees, along with a small budget for maintenance. The all-volunteer board is responsible for day-to-day operation and fiduciary care and overall well-being of the property. Along with these responsibilities comes the task of fundraising to accomplish certain goals pertaining to the restoration and upkeep of the buildings and providing essential business practices necessary to run the museum and village. Over this next year the board will be required to cover major costs beyond the city contract to restore Shore Haven and the caretakers cottage. All city and federal building codes will have to be adhered to including the building of a handicap ramp and restroom facilities, said Donaldson. Changes will then be made to relocate the entrance and pathways to redirect visitors to the new welcome center. Landscaping will provide attractive screening of the new ramp; native trees will be planted at the same time providing shade throughout the village. This shade will not only provide relief to tourists but help preserve the buildings from weather-related wear and tear, she added. Although Donaldson did mention that monies needed to accomplish these goals will definitely be needed, some of the cost (nearly $200,000) will come from the organizations financial reserves; additional fundraising efforts are being planned. On November 13, the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village will be having a Hard Hat kick-off event. The community will be invited to see the construction under way, hear about upcoming events and how each of us can help to make Shore Haven a beautifully restored building to welcome guests to the village. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets at 7 a.m. every Friday at The Dunes Golf and Tennis Club, 949 Sand Castle Road.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 201318 Birds Eye ViewDo Me A Favor!by Mark Bird WestallI have touched on my next new project in the past. I even put out a challenge to the community in this column about my concerns and received no response. I let the lack of interest slide, but an article written in the June 14 issue of the Island Sun by Barbara Joy Cooley got me thinking and I want to try once again to enlist the help of islanders in determining the status of our nesting wading birds on the island and their relationship to alligators. I have been arguing for years that the nesting wading birds actually look for alligators in the water below potential nesting sites because a patrolling alligator decreases the odds of marauding predators such as raccoons. Cooleys article brought up her concern that removing all the alligators on the island could have unintended consequences, and she was happy to report that her research showed that the number of alligators harvested in the last year had greatly declined compared to previous years. She noted that out of 113 incidents last year, just 21 reports were sent to a trapper, 21 alligators were merely relocated, and only four animals were actually harvested. On the surface, that sounds great. But I noticed while reading her article that most of the incidents she talked about where the animal did not need to be destroyed, it was either on the refuge or the alligator was a small one. Maybe the reason so few alligators were actually harvested last year was because most of the big ones are now dead and the trappers have no interest in harvesting those that do not have marketable hides. Now obviously, having only smaller alligators on the island greatly increases the odds that, even if we dont stop the feeding, any alligator that is trained to approach people expecting a free meal will not be large enough to hurt someone; and thats a good thing! But the question is, do small alligators do as effective a job of protecting rookeries as larger gators? I have been told in the past by one of the foremost crocodilian experts in Florida that small alligators do not do an effective job of deterring predators (i.e. raccoons) from getting into birds nests. Is it possible that from the birds perspective, having only small alligators patrolling the nesting rookeries on the island is like having no alligators at all? My concerns are based on some recent observations. When I first started clearing the Sanibel River for the city several years ago, I found 12 recently-used nests on the section of river that goes between Casa Ybel Road and Tarpon Bay Road. After a few years of trimming the trees in such a way as to promote good nesting sites, the number increased to 42 nests. I felt proud to be part of a city program that was taking steps to enhance the success of our nesting wading birds. But then while travelling that same section of river this winter, I saw no sign of nests being occupied and only one pair of yellow-crowned night herons and one pair of anhingas even showing some interest. Something serious is happening that is now causing the birds to abandon this previously productive nesting area. Besides the possibility that the islands methodical eradication of its moderate to large alligator population is a major contributing factor to the problem, another concern that may have to eventually be addressed is human disturbance on the river. While clearing the river last year, I saw more than once several kayakers enjoying the open waterways I had created. They told me it was so beautiful. Since I do my clearing of the river during the non-nesting season (August to December), I figure that is also a good time for those that have access to the river to enjoy its environs. But what happens if those folks are also enjoying the river in the late winter and early spring during nesting season? To a bird, it is not so scary to have an alligator that cant climb trees below the nest in the water, but it is something completely different to have a human predator on top of the water with the capability to look inside the nest. Because of this concern, I have always kept a close lookout on my guided Sanibel River canoe tours for any signs that the birds are beginning to start nesting activities and whenever I see the first signs, I stop the tours completely. My river trips are not a major part of my business anyway (I usually go in no more than once or twice a month). And I want the birds to continue nesting on the river so my trips in the refuge will continue to be productive. I only hope that the other folks who canoe and kayak the river have the same philosophy. But getting back to the alligator issue, I am concerned that the removal of so many moderateto large-sized alligators from the islands habitats is starting to have a serious impact on our nesting wading birds. Historically, that section of river between Casa Ybel and Tarpon Bay roads had several resident alligators all along the channel. And once I opened the channel up and trimmed the trees so that suitable nesting sites were available to the birds, they took advantage of the increased opportunity to nest. But now, I can only find one female and no male alligators occupying that section of the river and the nesting seems to have stopped. You see, most big alligators will travel out of the river system occasionally and go to deeper water bodies (residential ponds) to look for food and potential mates, especially in the spring and during drought conditions. If someone sees that animal in their lake and complains about them and they have a marketable hide, I fear they will be harvested and not return to where the birds are nesting whether continued on page 25 Since 1976 A Captiva Island Tradition Since 1976 Captivas Finest Waterfront Restaurant Come by Land.... or Come by Sea...

From page 15Cautionary Talecall a bear hugger that provides supplemental heat. He was also on pain medication, medication to help his heart beat normally, antibiotics and a whole host of other medications to try to keep him stable and the infection under control. Only four days after undergoing such a dramatic medical procedure, the cormorant was ready to be relocated to one of the clinics outdoor flight cages. It is amazing he lived; he is doing fine now. He will remain on antibiotics for approximately 10 days. If everything goes well, he will be released after he has completed the round of antibiotics. The story of this Double-crested cormorant, patient #1415, is another example of how CROW plays an important part in balancing the impact that humans have on the delicate ecosystem of the islands with the health of the native and migratory wildlife.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 201322 Tips For Beating The Summer Heatby Capt. Matt MitchellOur oppressive heat really arrived this last week with the official start of summer. Getting out early and off the water by midday is my way to stay somewhat comfortable out there. Another option this time of year is go out at night after the afternoon thunderstorms have passed. Fishing action has been good with both of these options. Like us, the fish just dont seem to be very active during the hottest part of the day. Big high tides this week had the redfish feeding well, at least once you located them. Several times this week I got on some hot redfish action while flipping baits deep up in the shade of the mangroves. Small grunts, pinfish and cut baits all caught reds up to 35 inches. The mouth of the river seems to be holding some of the larger redfish around, but the bite is not as consistent as the mangrove keys and oyster bars in the middle sound. Floating grass made lots of the mangrove shoreline in the northern sound simply unfishable this week. Catch-and-release snook action keeps getting better and better. The passes and the beaches are holding great numbers of snook of all sizes. Walking the beach is a great way to go for shorebound anglers. These snook on the beach can be anywhere from right against the sand out to the first and second troughs. During high sun periods its possible to sightfish these fish. White bucktails and swim baits that look like a shiner are hard to beat for artificials. If you are fishing the beaches from a boat, look for any snags or blowdowns and a few scoops of live chum will quickly let you know if you are in the right place. Live bait is king in and around the passes, with the bigger the bait better. Try to fish during the fastest moving water and target the rips and eddies. In the smaller passes like Blind Pass, it always amazes me how many fish are right out in the middle of the pass. They probably sit behind sand humps on the bottom as they drift against the fast moving tide. Once you locate the areas in the pass the fish are using, youll catch fish after fish. While snook fishing in the passes, we have also seen some good-sized trout in the mix. There are not lots of them but the ones we are catching are the biggest ones around right now, with most of them are over 20 inches. These pass trout prefer a little bit smaller bait. Out on the flats, finding clear water within close proximity of the passes seems to be where the trout are holding. I have been using small grunts and shiners fished under a popping cork. Working the sand holes at the edges of the shallower bars resulted in good numbers of keepersized trout, although by midday this bite was over. Most of these fish having been running 16 to 20 inches. Our tarpon are still around though the number of boats chasing them keeps getting less and less. Hot, sticky, calm conditions are perfect for targeting tarpon; the lower the oxygen content in the water, the more they have to roll and the easier they are to locate. While on a tarpon charter one day midweek, we found a few fish at the mornings first stop up by Captiva Pass, but as the winds looking was slowly increased, the fish seemed to vanish. Running out along the beaches of Cayo Costa and North Captiva, it was not any better. Heading back to the southern sound, I opted to set up at one of my confidence spots. After about 30 minutes, things got really slick calm and tarpon started appearing out of nowhere. Once the fish showed themselves, it did not take long to get a hook-up and land a tarpon. Summertime fishing offers so many choices on what species we want to fish for. Do like the locals do and get out early or late and enjoy some of the most consistent and uncongested fishing of the year.Capt.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 201324 Shell Museum Reports A Very Good SeasonDid you know that out of 17,500 museums in the United States that The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum is one of 776 accredited institutions? The museum features over 30 exhibits of mollusks from around the world, and is a unique resource, and an integral element of the Islands character and appeal. The museum saw a significant resurgence during the 2013 season receiving its highest attendance revenues in the last four years. One component of the museum mission in this community is to explore and interpret one of the most important leisure activities on the islands of Sanibel and Captiva shelling. It is currently home to 35,000 catalogued collection lots, displays and identifies 305 shallow-water species from Southwest Florida on its website, and showcases an average of 15 live mollusks in its Live Tank exhibit throughout the year. The museum plays a significant role both in the community and abroad with its focus on education hosting students through its Adopt-A-Class program, sending shell kits to schools across the country and providing a variety of programs for visitors to learn more about mollusks and their role in the environment. Between 2012-13, the museum was host to 48,619 visitors, 2,469 visiting students and 128 classes (10 percent more than 2011-12), and had 650,000 visits to its website. And at least 2,300 shell kits have been sent to schools since 1995. The museum always looking for ways to engage in mutually beneficial partnerships with island businesses, hosting popular annual fundraising events such as Under The Sea, Oyster-lympics (oyster eating contest) and the Celebrity Island Dinner. It had 108 dedicate volunteers in 2012 who are wintertime or year-round residents. They range from casual collectors of seashells to scientists who are experienced in the field of malacology to former school principals and educators. All have an abiding interest in the museum and its mission. More than a dozen Sanibel School students are also actively involved as junior docents. Volunteers function as museums exhibit hall docents, school and adult group tour docents, slide show lecturers, Collections Department assistants, and store salespeople.The museum is a unique organization with a strong educational mission and, after almost 18 years of existence, it has become an important presence in our community, said Jos H.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 201326 Joan Mikelson Joan Reynolds Nory McNelis Francie Utley Sanibel-Captiva Art League Artists Exhibit Paintings At Sanibel LibraryMore than 50 paintings by members of Sanibel-Captiva Art League are currently on view at the Sanibel Public Library. By displaying their work in this Annual Summer Art Show, the artists attain goals set during past academic and studio studies and during local painting workshops. These shows provide local artists with encouragement to practice and improve their skills while sharing their work with the community to critique and purchase. Some of the artists have only recently started painting while others have won awards and also show their work in art galleries throughout the year. The ever-popular island scenes with tropical vegetation and wildlife are a favorite for island residents, who wish to decorate their homes as well as for visitors who wish to take a little of the island back so they can remember their vacation in paradise. Each original painting is a different interpretation and unique to the individual artists style. There are exquisitely beautiful watercolors rendered with precision and expert technique while other paintings have wildly-colorful expressionistic brushstrokes that evoke emotional content. As part of the Art Council of Southwest Florida in Lee, Charlotte and Collier counties, the San-Cap Art League also provides opportunities for artists to enter their paintings in several juried shows throughout the year that are judged by nationally-known artists. Frequently, the judge will give a public gallery talk afterward and explain why he chose certain paintings to receive awards and rejected others from the exhibit. Residents and visitors are invited to view these exhibits and attend receptions. The next Art Council Show will be held at BIG ARTS Phillips Gallery this coming December. To view the current show, call the library at 472-2483. For additional information or regular hours, log on to www. sanlib.org. The Sanibel Public Library is located at 770 Dunlop Road.

rfn BUSINESS REAL ESTATE CLASSIFIEDS VOL. 21, NO. 1 SANIBEL & CAPTIVA ISLANDS, FLORIDA JUNE 28, 2013 BSECTIONT hree Cheers F or Kat Cowan, Who Promotes Positivity I n D anceby Jeff L ysiakWhen Kat Cowan speaks, youngsters enrolled at the Sanibel Recreation Centers Summer Day Camp snap to attention. I only answer positive questions from positive people, she says, adding a smile. Now, who wants to learn this dance? A dozen hands shoot into the air, as the room filled with eager hip-hop dancers-intraining prepare to get the next set of steps from Cowan. A native of Fort Myers, Cowan visits the Rec Center every Thursday from 2 to 4 p.m. teaching first, second and third graders hip-hop and modern dancing. She was discovered by Youth Program Coordinator Dave DeFonzo, whose daughters are enrolled in Cowans cheerleading academy. (Dave) told me about the summer camp and asked me if I would be interested in doing some classes, recalled Cowan. This is a great age to work with because they are old enough not to be clinging to mom and dad any more, yet they are well rounded enough that they can come away with some skills that theyll have for a lifetime. Cowan began cheerleading at the Pop Warner Football level in the seventh grade, then went on to cheer for four years at Cypress Lake High School. While in high school, she was selected to perform with cheerleaders from around the country at the prestigious annual Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City as well as in Japan. After high school, I took a long break away from cheerleading and I really missed it, said Cowan, who remembers seeing an advertisement in a local newspaper for cheerleader tryouts for the Miami Dolphins. Despite overwhelming odds, going up against more than 400 other cheerleaders, Cowan made the squad. From 1999 through 2003, she was a Dolphins cheerleader, and was captain during her final year in Miami. Her position on the 36-member team allowed her to travel and perform both around the country and internationally. We performed at the Special Olympics and in the Bahamas, in Mexico, in Monaco aboard the Dwight D. Eisenhower aircraft carrier for the troops on Super Bowl Sunday in 2001, said Cowan. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity and such an honor to perform for our military just amazing. These days, the mother of two enjoys teaching her cheerleading and dancing skills to youngsters at the Torro Training Center, which she operates with her brother, Dan Torregrossa, a martial arts expert. Another brother is a police officer for the City of Cape Coral.continued on page 2B Former Miami Dolphins cheerleader Kat Cowan teaches hip-hop dancing to youngsters at the Sanibel Recreation Center every week during Summer Day Camp photos by Jeff Lysiak Kat Cowan teaches step-by-step dance moves to first and second graders Kat Cowan observes the groups dance moves in a full-length mirror Kat Cowan stressed the importance of stretching before beginning her dance lessons

2B ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 2013 Hortoons From page 1BKat CowanFor years, we used to run junior cheerleading camps with the Dolphins, said Cowan. So I thought what a great concept that was. I could incorporate what I learned as a cheerleader and then add in skills my brothers learned, then develop a curriculum using all three. Im very passionate about teaching. Running through each movement of the hip-hop dance, Cowan tells the kids in the class that being positive is the most important lesson to be learned. No matter what sport they play or what theyre doing, having a positive attitude and working hard will always take you far, added Cowan. For more information about Kat Cowans cheerleading instruction for girls, contact her at the Torro Training Center, 17689 Summerlin Road in Fort Myers, phone 954-647-1844.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 20136B Diving The USS Mohowkby Michael Heider and Patricia MolloyOne year after the sinking of the USS Mohawk, members of The River Weekly News and Island Sun team dove to the depths of the Gulf of Mexico to investigate firsthand the Mighty Mos integration with the ocean. The former WWII ship has been transformed into an artificial reef teeming with life; from small crustaceans and sea urchins to large schools of bait fish, barracudas and 600-pound Goliath groupers. While resting on the boat between dives, our conversation turned to reports of gigantic whale sharks seen gliding gracefully through the waters around the wreck and sea turtles quietly sleeping on her deck. It is remarkable how rapidly the ship has come alive in its environment on the ocean floor. Located only 28 nautical miles off the coast of Captiva and Sanibel islands at a depth of 90 feet, the USS Mohawk is a one-of-a-kind dive destination made possible by Joe Weatherby, ship wrecker for Reef Makers, and Mike Campbell, Lee County natural resources senior environmental specialist. Scubavice Diving Center in Fort Myers organizes guided trips to the USS Mohawk.

8B ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 2013 You may have noticed in the title of todays column my intentional play on words from the famous duet from the Broadway musical Annie Get Your Gun. Most of us are familiar with the song that originally set the stage for the sharpshooting contest between Annie Oakley and Frank Butler. The estate planning tie in, of course, is to a Durable Power of Attorney document in which you name someone who can do anything for you. The purpose behind the Durable Power of Attorney is to have a back up person who can act for you in the event that you are unable or unavailable to act. The trick in these documents is to grant the specific power to the person named in the document (your agent) so that they can write checks, manage your investments, enforce your contracts, sign deeds and do just about anything that you can do. Since we dont know exactly what actions someone may have to do for us if we become incapacitated, many Durable Power of Attorney documents are quite lengthy, as they contain numerous paragraphs about all sorts of powers. Sometimes clients will bemoan the length of the document. Why do we need to be so detailed? they ask. Cant we just say that the person Im naming can just do anything that I can do? I have seen, in fact, some Durable Power of Attorney documents that are rather brief. They might only be one page and say something like this: I grant my agent the maximum power under law to perform any act on my behalf that I could do personally. So, if your son walks into the bank to transact business on your behalf and presents a Durable Power of Attorney document that you signed which contains only this broad language, is the document considered enough is it legal for the bank to honor the document and allow your son to conduct your banking business for you? The answer to my question is a resounding No. The Florida statute on point says an agent may only exercise authority specifically granted to the agent in the power of attorney and any authority reasonably necessary to give effect to that express grant of specific authority. General provisions in a power of attorney which do not identify the specific authority granted, such as provisions purporting to give the agent the authority to do all acts that the principal can do, are not express grants of specific authority and do not grant any authority to the agent. (emphasis mine). So in my example the bank cannot honor a one page Durable Power of Attorney that grants your son the right to transact any business that you might transact, where the document does not also grant the specific authority to transact banking business such as depositing or withdrawing funds and writing checks. In fact, the most recent version of the Florida Durable Power of Attorney statute mandates not only that it specifically mentions the powers that you want your agent to possess, but goes on to require you to initial next to certain powers for them to be effective. Examples of such powers that must be properly initialed include the ability to create trusts, fund assets into your trust, sign beneficiary designations and help with certain estate and life care planning matters. It is likely that the Durable Power of Attorney forms you find in the office supply store or on the internet are insufficient to grant those that you love and trust to conduct your legal business for you. If you become mentally incapacitated and havent already put into place a valid Durable Power of Attorney document that meets the statutory requirements, your loved ones might otherwise have to seek a guardianship in order to conduct your legal, business and financial affairs. This can be quite time consuming and expensive. Some people become quite concerned with the thought of granting such broad powers to another. These are valid concerns. You should never grant powers to someone that you dont trust. If you dont believe that the agent you name in a Durable Power of Attorney document will not have your best interest first and foremost in his or her mind when acting, you should not grant them a power to begin with. And thats not to say that family members who dont always see eye to eye shouldnt give each other Durable Powers. The main issue is whether theyll act in each others best interest. Which leads me to wonder whether Annie Oakley would have given her sharpshooting rival Frank Butler her Durable Power of Attorney. You may recall the musical ends with Annie having won lots of money that saved the Buffalo Bill Wild West Show and that she also ends up marrying Frank Butler. I guess it takes an estate planning attorney to ponder such things. Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at www.sbshlaw.com. Will PowerYou Can Do Anything I Can Do Betterby Craig R.

10B ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 2013 Golf Pro Gene Sauers Has Found Success On The Champions Tour After Battling A Mysterious Diseaseby Ed FrankThe name Gene Sauers is well known in golf circles. He had a steady career on the PGA tour for 20 years, with three PGA wins and earnings of more than $4.6 million. And last year, he joined the Champions Tour when he reached 50 years old. But what is not known by many is the fact that he battled a mysterious disease two years ago that threatened not only his career, but his life. We caught up with Sauers this past weekend during a trip north to Chicago where Sauers was playing in a new Champions Tour event, the Encompass Championship. It was his ninth tournament of the year after launching his 2013 season here in February at the Ace Group Classic in Naples. You might say that I am the Miracle of 51, he laughed, referring to his age and his successful fight to overcome a rare and devastating skin disease known as StevensJohnson syndrome. This time two years ago, the likeable Sauers was in the midst of a seven-week hospital stay where he battled this sinister disease that eats at the body from the inside. He sometimes questioned whether he would ever leave the hospital alive, let alone ever play professional golf again. It was a brutal, painful recovery process that resulted in at least 12 skin grafts on his arms and legs. The cause of the disease is unknown. In fact, doctors first thought he had rheumatoid arthritis The disease has left his arms and legs scarred and discolored, but it didnt cause him to lose his competitive desire. In his nine Champions Tour events this year, he has three top 10 finishes, including two seconds and one third while earning $492,272, placing him 19th in the Charles Schwab Cup rankings. He finished a respectable 14th in Februarys Ace Group Classic. The numerous skin grafts did result in stiffness, although stretching exercises each morning helps alleviate that symptom. I plan to play in every Champions Tour event on the schedule this year 20 or 21 tournaments, he said. He has a two-year exemption on the Champions Tour as a result of his career wins. Based on his early success on the 50-and-older tour, Sauers should have no problem keeping his exemption. Sauers story is one of inspiration to anyone suffering a debilitating illness as it is a story of courage, commitment and the willingness to live. He is an inspiration to his fellow pros who have welcomed him back to the links with warm embraces. We wish him continued good health and success. Miracle Off To Good SecondHalf Start After Winning First-Half Championship The Fort Myers Miracle baseball team, Florida State League South Division Champions for the seasons first-half, got off to a 3-1 start in the second half of the season after winning three of four games last week from Jupiter. The Miracle are home at Hammond Stadium for three games this weekend Saturday, Sunday and Monday against the St. Lucie Mets. On Saturdays 6:05 p.m. game, the Miracle will welcome back TNT basketball analyst Craig Sager, who will pose for pictures and sign autographs. Sagers early announcing career was here at WINK-TV, where he was the sports director. He is known for his colorful suits and shirts. Miracle To Be Represented At Futures Game Current Fort Myers Miracle pitcher Liam Hendriks and former Miracle outfielder Ben Revere have been selected to play in the 12th Annual XM All-Star Futures Game July 11 in Anaheim, California. The games features the best Minor League prospects in the United States against the best from the rest of the world.

1. Avoid placing large pieces of furniture across the corner of a room. Rather, place large pieces on an angle. Why? Your room will appear to have move visual movement. This will give a potential buyer the idea that your room might be a bit larger and easier to work with for their own furniture placement. 2. If your home features a vaulted wall, place large pieces of furniture close to the highest wall. This calls attention to the walls architectural interest, and creates balance in your room. 3. If your home features smaller rooms, remember less is more. An underfurnished room is preferable to an overfurnished room. 4. Change your lampshades. This quick fix can give any room an updated appearance especially if you select dramatic black or textured shades. 5. If need a smaller room to seem more expansive, consider purchasing a large wall mirror. Mirrors definitely give the illusion of more space. Just be sure to take special care in placing your mirror. You want to be sure that what it reflects is a pleasing sight! 6. Add some texture. Throws, tasseled pillows, or even an inexpensive area rug can create a warmer, cozier feel in any room. 7. Let there be light! Be sure your window treatments are in the open position, flooding as much light as possible into each and every room in your home. 8. Add some permanent florals and greenery. Dont go overboard, but adding a silk tree in a bare corner, or a floral arrangement on a dining room table adds lots of ambiance to any room. 9. Go crazy with color... or not! When selling a home, neutral shades are always the best. Its difficult for a buyer to see beyond the colors they see when they enter a room. 10. Re-accessorize! Your cherished mementos, while precious to you, might actually create a barrier in the mind of a buyer. Think about simple accessory plans with minimal clutter. Perhaps a display of leather-bound books paired with small greenery, and a small picture on an easel. Jeanie Tinch is an interior designer on Sanibel/Captiva Islands.

14B ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 2013 S chool S martby S helley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My son will enter ninth grade in August and we are planning his classes now. I want to know more about AP classes and dual enrollment classes. Is one better than the other? Thomas M., Fort Myers Thomas, This is a complex and important question. Advanced Placement (AP) classes are classes taken in high school that may provide high school credits and may provide college credits if the student taking the class passes an end of year test with a satisfactory grade. Dual enrollment or dual credit is a program that allows high school students to simultaneously earn college or vocational credit toward a postsecondary diploma, certificate or degree at a Florida public institution that will also count as credit toward a high school diploma. Other states have their own unique programs. There are clear differences in these two types of classes in regard to who can enroll, class structure, cost and credits. Either choice provides students with challenging coursework that may help them complete a college degree more quickly. Enrollment in an AP class varies among high schools; some require a teachers recommendation and of course the school must offer these courses. In Florida, juniors or seniors with a GPA of at least 3.0 may participate in dual enrollment and as well as any admissions criteria set by the postsecondary institution they student attends. Currently, AP courses cost approximately $89 in order to take the exam. There may be other costs associated with the class depending on the school. Public school students who are dually enrolled in a Florida public college or university are exempt from registration, matriculation or laboratory fees for courses taken through dual enrollment and textbooks are provided free of charge to these students. In AP classes a passing score on an exam is a 3 out of 5, but the required minimum score for college credits differs among colleges with many requiring at least a score of 4 or 5. Dual enrolled students are graded on their coursework through the semester and receive college credits/transcript after completing the course. Out of state and elite colleges are not likely to accept the credits, but most state colleges and universities do. The two approaches dual credit and AP offer different ways to helping high school students earn college credits. AP prepares students to pass an exam to prove their mastery of college-level curriculum. Dual credit in effect enrolls students in college courses while they are still in high school, allowing them to earn credit for both. Experts say both approaches can work and many students are able to gain an entire year or more of college before they even get there, but there are drawbacks to both. Students in AP classes, for example, may find that although they passed the exam, their score isnt high enough to earn college credit. At some colleges, even the highest mark wont count or a college may only accept credits from two or three AP classes even though the student may have taken far more AP classes. For dual enrollment students the drawbacks include issues with time spent commuting to take college courses as well as maturity concerns. Expectations both continued on page 22 E dison S tate College Offering ACE Personal Trainer Certification Course Edison State College Continuing Education is offering a prep course for individuals who wish to become certified ACE (American Council on Exercise) Personal Trainers.

Insurance Tip Buy Rental Car Insuranceby Marge MeekHaving just returned from a trip to Puerto Rico, I thought of my rental car experience, which turned out fine, but certainly could have been a lot different. After declining the rental companys two-tier insurance package that started at $25 per day, we walked around the car with the attendant, who notated more nicks than I did. Remembering that I had also given them a $500 credit card damage deposit, I started to rethink my decision about using my personal auto insurance instead of theirs, but off we went to the island of narrow streets and heavy traffic. Here are the tips on being comfortable with your decision not to buy insurance from a rental car company. Understand the rental car companys contract. The issues that can be trouble are things like fair market value of the car, their estimates of repair costs, loss of use charges, diminished value, towing and storage. It is very important to understand their terms and conditions, like non-listed driver (valet parking attendant?), use on non-paved roads and mandatory locked doors policy. Vacations spots like Mexico, Bahamas and Europe may be excluded from your auto policy. Buy the rental car firms collision damage waiver insurance. Then, you can drop off the keys and walk away and your worry-free vacation will be a total success. Marge Meek is a local SanibelCaptiva insurance agent, who can be reached at mmeek@rosierinsurance. com.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your time is devoted to career demands through much of the week. But Venus, who rules your sign, might be planning how (and with whom) youll spend your weekend. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Dont be put off by the surprising turn in the way your project is developing. Youve invested enough time in it to know how to make all the necessary adjustments. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The work week goes smoothly for the most part. But a weekend visit to a place in your past could hold surprises for your future, especially where romance is involved. LEO (July 23 to August 22) A sudden attack of shyness for the usually loquacious Lion could be a sign that deep down youre not sure enough about what (or whom) you had planned to talk up in public. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Deal with that job-related problem on-site -that is, at the workplace. Avoid taking it home, where it can spoil those important personal plans youve made. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Its a good time to let those favorable comments about your business dealings be known to those in a position to be helpful. Dont hide your light; let it shine. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Avoid added pressure to finish a project on deadline by steering clear of distractions. To put it somewhat poetically: Time for fun -when your tasks are done. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) You might be uneasy about an offer from a longtime colleague. But before you reject it, study it. You might be surprised at what it actually contains. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Deal firmly with a difficult family matter. Its your strength they need right now. You can show your emotions when the situation begins to ease up. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A recent dispute with some co-workers might not have been completely resolved. But other colleagues will be only too happy to offer support of your actions. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Let go of that Piscean pride long enough to allow someone to help you with a surprising development. That could make it easier for you to adjust to the change. BORN THIS WEEK: Your willingness to open up to possibilities is why people like you are often among our most popular political leaders. On July 7, 1852, according to Sir Arthur Conan Doyles stories, Dr. John H. Watson is born. Coincidentally, the author died on this day in England at the age of 71. His first Sherlock Holmes story, A Study in Scarlet, was published in Beetons Christmas Annual in 1887. On July 3, 1863, on the third day of the Battle of Gettysburg, Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lees last attempt at breaking the Union line ends in disastrous failure, bringing the most decisive battle of the American Civil War to an end. Exhausted, both armies held their positions until the night of July 4, when Lee withdrew. On July 5, 1946, French designer Louis Reard unveils a daring two-piece swimsuit at a Paris swimming pool. A Parisian showgirl modeled the new fashion, which Reard dubbed bikini, inspired by a U.S. atomic test that took place off the Bikini Atoll in the Pacific Ocean earlier that week. On July 4, 1954, Marilyn Sheppard is beaten to death inside her home in Cleveland. Her husband, Dr. Sam Sheppard, claimed to see a man with bushy hair fleeing the scene, but the authorities charged Sheppard with killing his pregnant wife. Sheppards case provided the loose inspiration for the hit television show The Fugitive. On July 2, 1964, in a nationally televised ceremony, President Lyndon Johnson signs into law the historic Civil Rights Act. The Civil Rights Act met tough opposition in the House and a lengthy, heated debate in the Senate before being approved. On July 6, 1976, in Annapolis, Md., the United States Naval Academy admits women for the first time in its history with the induction of 81 female midshipmen. In May 1980, Elizabeth Anne Rowe became the first woman member of the class to graduate. On July 1, 1984, the Motion Picture Association of America, which oversees the voluntary rating system for movies, introduces a new rating, PG-13. The action film Red Dawn, starring Patrick Swayze and Charlie Sheen, became the first PG-13 movie to be released in theaters. It is still not known who made the following sage observation: The difference between involvement and commitment is like an eggs-and-ham breakfast: The chicken was involved; the pig was committed. If you wanted to use fossil fuels to equal the amount of energy released by the sun onto the Earth, youd have to burn 550 billion tons of coal every day. Lightning isnt solely a phenomenon of Earth: Astronomers have noted lightning bolts on Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Venus. In 1915, the average annual income for a family in the United States was $687. You might be surprised to learn that the name Adam isnt actually a proper name in the classical Hebrew language; its a generic term for a human being. If youre planning a visit to the village of Chester in the United Kingdom, be glad youre not from Wales. In that town, the law says that any Welshman found within the city walls after sunset may be shot with a longbow. In Germany, cacao was used for medicinal purposes long before it was used to make chocolate. It is, perhaps, unsurprising that the first duty-free airport shop -those favored sources of tax-free liquor -was in Shannon, Ireland. It was in the very early years of the 20th century when, in his Devils Dictionary, Ambrose Bierce defined a corporation as an ingenious device for obtaining individual profit without individual responsibility. In Alabama, every purchase of a deck of playing cards is subject to a special 10-cent tax. Those who sell the cards must pay a $1 to $3 license fee. When you do the common things in life in an uncommon way, you will command the attention of the world. -George Washington Carver THIS WEEK IN HISTORY STRANGE BUT TRUE THOUGHT FOR THE DAY18B ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 2013

GUESTS IN GOOD HANDS: Mike Velardi, 24, bartender at the Sea Breeze Cafe at Sundial, recently performed the Heimlich maneuver on a choking customer. After about six thrusts around her stomach area, Sylvia Longaker expelled the food. By the time the EMS crew arrived, she was breathing on her own. About two weeks earlier, Velardi came to the rescue of an older gentleman who had started to pass out. Velardi checked the guests vital signs and called 911. This one also had a happy ending. Velardi, a bartender at Sundials restaurants for over three years, took EMT courses while attending Edison State College, completing over 300 hours of ride time with emergency responder vehicles. continued on page 20B

22B ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 2013deaRPharmacistJoint S cript For A rthritis Pain by S uzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: I have osteaoarthritis and take ibuprofen and hydrocodone. Glucosamine helps, but even after six months, Im still stiff and riddled with pain. What else can I do? DY, Sarasota, Florida Youre not alone, 27 million Americans live with osteoarthritis (OA) and the affliction worsens over time. Left untreated, it can completely disable you, so luckily you are doing something. I like glucosamine. I prefer the glucosamine sulfate form over other forms, because it provides sulfur to the body... sulfur, not to be confused with sulfa, a drug that many people are allergic to. OA always involves pro-inflammatory cytokines; youve heard me mention those before. Cytokines are pain-causing chemicals. But get used to the word cytokine, I use it frequently in my writings. Cytokines arent bad until your body pumps them out in excess, and thats exactly what happens with OA, and its exactly what you need to reduce. That controls pain and improves range of motion. Ibuprofen reduces the cytokines called prostaglandins and IL-1B. You want that. Glucosamine is a precursor for glycosaminoglycans and that is a component of joint cartilage. Consider these: MSM This is a sulfur-based compound that is actually a by-product of DMSO (DMSO is applied topically to joints, but its intended for vet purposes, the FDA doesnt like humans using it even though many of you do). Anyway, MSM, an oral supplement is sold at health food stores and does wonders for joint pain. Bromelain This pineapple extract gets mixed reviews. One study found it to be as effective as diclofenac, a prescription anti-inflammatory. I personally like this and frequently recommend it. Devils Claw Slightly more exotic, devils claw is so named because of its hooked fruit. A 2011 study from Phytotherapy Research concluded that the herb could block the release pro-inflammatory cytokines. In another study, Devils Claw performed as well as the prescription drug Vioxx (now off the market, however Celebrex which is safer does remain). The point is that Devils Claw is strong; it interacts with medicine, ask your doctor if its right for you. Boswellia A resin from a tree. A 2013 study from the Journal of Headache and Pain studied the biological active ingredients in boswellia (pentacyclic triterpene acids) for their potent antiinflammatory and analgesic properties. Boswellic acid is another major active ingredient. This is (in my mind) Mother Natures ibuprofen. This may sound obvious, but take pressure off your joints. Extra weight does no favor to your painful knees and hip joints. You may have to start gently with yoga, or Tai Chi, but keep those joints moving. And finally, consider ramping up immunity, some forms of arthritis are due to infections, either fungal, viral or bacterial. Compounds in green tea reduce the cytokine called TNF alpha, often high in arthritic conditions. One cup of green (or matcha) tea could beat up germs and improve immunity. The L-theanine it contains is relaxing too. Drink it daily. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

Close That L eakby Karen L. Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAMLDo you ever feel that you have less energy when you face in a certain direction? Do you walk into your office and sit down and immediately feel drained? Or do you stand in the studio and just dont seem to have the energy to work on that painting or project? Having worked with many clients that experience these phenomena, it is explainable energetically. There seems to be a pattern with many clients showing that the area where they spend the most time has a correlation with a leak in their energetic system. One client recently advised that her workshop and porch on the bayou was facing in the same direction as where her system was weak. So, you ask, what is she talking about? In the s, a scientist named Frances Nixon researched the correlation between the bodys energetic axis and that of the Earth. She determined that when a baby is born, a temporary energetic field is created around the baby to enable it to cope with the gravitational pull and electromagnetic forces that otherwise would dramatically impinge on the child. To protect the child entering this new magnetized environment external to the protection of the womb, a Vivaxis field is created to serve as a bridging force aligning the infants physical direction at the time of birth with the Earths energies. This shield fades in about three months. The polarities of the Vivaxin field are independent of the Earths magnetic field. However, if stress or other factors do not permit the field to dissolve, that person will experience weakness when facing in the direction of their birth, since the field is now interfering with other energies of the body rather than enhancing them. Thus, if one has a Vivaxin syndrome, he or she is vulnerable when facing in a particular direction. Sometimes, there can be two or rarely three directions where the per son is at risk. So, you ask, why is she telling us this and what can be done about it? When working with a person initially, in addition to getting all the energies humming through activation of the systems with the 5 Minute Routine, a foundational piece for healing is to make certain that the person does not have a Vivaxin syndrome. Unfortunately, correcting the syndrome is beyond the scope of explaining in this column. However, the good news is that it is easily correctable by a trained Eden Energy Medicine practitioner or by purchasing Donna Edens book Energy Medicine and following the instructions on pages 330 to 333. I would be remiss in not educating you about this condition, since it is a foundation for optimizing your health and healing. Isnt so sweet that you can learn these techniques your self? Have fun with your energy! Next weeks topic is Activate All 9 Energy Systems In 5 Minutes, Part 1. If you have a questions for Semmelman, 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. Got A Problem? D r. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: Can you provide some tips on achieving vibrant health?A: Best-selling author, Ob/Gyn Dr. Christiane Northrup is a leading expert in womens health and wellness. She states that the way to help women of all ages achieve vibrant health is by teaching them to tap into their inner wisdom, necessary to experience joy and fulfillment throughout life. Happy people, we know through research, lead the most fulfilled lives. Studies have been done in cultures where people have longer life spans than in our culture. These cultures have strong family ties, a strong spiritual life, and trusted friendships, which lead to much lower rates of depression and anxiety. These people live life with meaning and purpose and remain active throughout their lives. Mind-body health, therefore, is about living your life in a way that makes you feel content, joyful, and connected with others. People from cultures with long life spans prioritize family and create strong relationships that are meaningful. Research has shown that older couples who have healthy relationships and are healthy enough to have sex at least two times a week, live longer and have much more satisfaction in life. What is really interesting is that they look about ten or more years younger. We are quick to see how the aging process is changing in our culture. The media have given us a profile of how someone should look, especially women, at a certain age. Entertainment Tonight (a popular TV show) informs us about how all the beautiful people maintain their youthful looks and can make average people think they need to run to a plastic surgeon and undergo every procedure known to man. Also, with so many antiaging products and treatments on the market, people are continually encour aged to look younger. What I am suggesting here, and what research shows us, is that nurturing ourselves and our relationships can contribute to a more youthful look, genetics being equal. As is accepted among many women today, we are not our grandmothers or our mothers. Now 60 is the new 40, and 50 the new 30.

23B ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 2013 Dr. DaveTotally S tokedby D r. D ave HepburnSkateboarding is PAIN personified. A skateboarding park recently opened up around the corner from my clinic. This has added color (primarily red) to my practice and hipness to my vocabulary. With no shortages of fractured this and lacer ated that now skating through my office door, I have become, unofficially, the doctor to these cement-surfin sons of stitches. Yo, doctor dude, I was carvin some phat air, like I was totally amped bro, when I ate it and bought me this gnarlacious swellbow. Translated: My elbow hurts. What has surprised me is that these swellbow, tweaker and hipper victims are not only 16-year-old baggy-pant boarders but also dudes and dudettes in their 20s and 30s who actually hold jobs that dont require supersizing stuff. In fact, 170 injured skateboarders who were hospitalized last year in North America were over age 65! And so I have decided to give the wheels a go. Sort of. My sons, with a twinkle in their eyes, convinced me that I should try rollerblading, a sport which I have eschewed, possibly due to the frequency with which rollerbladers tend to end up on the hood of my car with relatively little effort on my behalf. And for a lifelong hockey player, rollerblades are frightening. Stopping on ice skates means a quick turn to the side. Doing the same thing on rollerblades means a quick turn to the hospital. And so it was, that with 600 pounds of armor draped about my joints, head and any skin that might possibly become intimate with asphalt, I teetered on these blades like a newborn giraffe on ice on the Serengeti during an unusual equatorial blizzard, during a hockey game. Cowabunga, dad! My fear of these wheels of death was validated when I met my first speed bump at ramming speed. Unable to brake, I was promptly launched headlong, in a horizontal plane, landing with an unceremonious splat and coming to a halt only after deploying my elbows as brakes. First day, first swellbow, a condition known to the uncool as bursitis of the elbow. At least I didnt have a hipper or a tweaker. More than 100,000 skateboard injuries show up in the emergency room each year, a third of whom have less than one weeks experience. Most experienced boarders treat themselves, usually by punching their head repeatedly until the injury hurts less than their head. Skaters suffer some significant smacks to the skull, followed by broken wrists, face and ankles. Hipper: Yo, doctor dude. I got this outrageous hipper from goofy-footin into a fakie. To inspect a patients hip, it is necessary to remove some clothing. but given the skaters sartorial tastes, this is rarely required. Yep, I can see it from here, you have a traumatic greater trochanteric bursitis. Whoa, awesome! Can I keep skating or do I smoke some, ... er... play xBox for a while? Reach down to where you think your hip is located. Feel that bony thing jutting out? (If not, consider Atkins.) This is the infamous greater trochanter, a part of the femur that is covered in a fluid-filled sac called a bursa, a shock absorber that prevents muscle from rubbing up against bone. Bump this too hard or lie on it too long and the bursa will be traumatized, swell and hurt. If it doesnt get better on its own, then a well-placed cortisone shot works wonders. Swellbow: Another bodacious bursa sits over the bony part of the bent elbow. This olecranon bursa is easily traumatized as well as easily infected. This swollen bursa (bursitis) blows up like a blowfishs blowpop and feels like a jug of water has been taped to your arm. I will often drain these and place a pressure dressing on them (or they fill right back up). If they do fill back up, then a cortisone injection may keep it at bay. An infected bursa, however, is a serious bummer given its proximity to the joint. Tweaker: Kickflip down a rail, fall on an outstretched hand and you may suffer several serious injuries to the wrist. You may fracture one of eight wrist bones, the scaphoid bone being the most dangerous. The fracture may not be overtly obvious, but persistent pain where the thumb seems to join the wrist (the snuffbox) is highly suspicious. More than a wrist tweaker, if a fractured scaphoid is not set properly, you may be in for some real gnarly surgery. Yep, these skaters have brought some outrageous injuries into my clinic, and for that... I am totally stoked.

Mom A nd Me by L izzie 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, We joined a group of neighbors to go to a four-lecture series on birding. The lectures were going to be given by a local general surgeon whose hobby is, by the old-fashioned term, bird watching. It sounded very interesting to all of us, so we signed up. I recently have been troubled with abdominal problems, and we thought we should get a second opinion. My husband and I immediately thought I should go to this doctor and maybe he would give me good service. Good service, well, I dont think so! At the lecture after my tests, he immediately started giving me the results all within earshot of the other members of the group. I had a spot on my lung, which may be malignant. My pancreas was not normal, and on and on he went. I have reason to be very worried about my medical problems. I am so embar rassed and annoyed that so many of my neighbors also know of my problems. Was it ethical for him to treat me like this? Andrea Dear Andrea, So goes the problem of dual relationships Having your doctor as a social friend, having your staff members daughter as a tenant. These relationships are very difficult to manage. Your physician should not have discussed your private health information in such a public setting: with the privacy laws of today, I am surprised he did. Pryce Dear Andrea, It seems most unethical to me for you to be treated in this manner, but I am not an attorney or a physician. Any patient who feels that they have been treated in an unprofessional, unethical manner or that their privacy has been invaded can file a complaint with their states medical board. The complaint can be done very easily at the medical boards website or mailed to their address in the state where you live. If you file a complaint, you may be helping others as well as yourself.

Add the spiced cutlets to the pan carefully without crowding the pan. Cook chicken for 2 to 3 minutes per side. The chicken should be golden brown and cooked completely through. Insert a internal cooking thermometer into the chicken cutlet, it should read 165 degrees for correct doneness. Remove from pan and let cool slightly. Turn the heat on the pan down to medium low. Add 1/2 cup of water to pan and stir to remove any bits of flavor from the bottom of the pan. Reduce the water in the pan by half (this should only take a minute or so). Add lime juice to the pan and continue to stir. Add the butter to the pan sauce while stirring constantly. The butter should blend with the pan sauce to form a thicker pan sauce. After the butter is combined to make the sauce, remove from heat and add cilantro. Taste pan sauce and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Serve the chicken with rice and fresh vegetables for a complete meal. Spoon the pan sauce over the chicken. Garnish with extra cilantro and lime wedges.

The old facility at 14981 Captiva Drive will be demolished to prepare the site for the new fire station. The fire district is currently securing building permits through Lee County Development and will begin the construction process in the early fall. Fire district officials would like to remind the public that in the event of an emergency they should dial 911 for the fastest response from the fire district and Lee County Emergency Medical Services. The 2013 Hurricane Season has begun and runs from June 1 to November 30. Officials urge residents to make preparations ahead of time to secure their homes in the event of an approaching storm this season. They say there is a very high chance the islands will receive an early evacuation notice due to the vulnerability of barrier islands to storm surge.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 20132 Granddaughter Remembers Life At Shore Havensubmitted by Emilie AlfinoOne of the wonderful things about working at a historical museum is learning from visitors. One lucky day, museum staff received a letter from Mary Goodnow, granddaughter of Daisy and Ross Mayer, the original owners of Shore Haven. Here are her recollections: A friend of mine toured your museum and sent me a photo of my grandmothers home. In case some of my recollections of living in Sanibel would help your fine efforts in creating Sanibel back in the 1940s, Ive jotted down some of my recollections. Daisy Richards Mayer and James Ross Mayer were my grandparents. My grandfather died before I was born but my total love of my Grandmother Mayer is still very potent to me. I spent one winter at Grandma Mayers home in Sanibel with Aunt Gaykie (Grace Mayer Symroski) bringing me there while her newly graduated West Point husband was flying dangerous missions in the South Shore Haven as it looks at the historical village today Shore Haven heading to the historical village in 2012 Shore Haven in the 1970s with owners Doris and Robert Potts, who were careful to preserve the original details of the house Thanks to Master S ponsor: The Sanibel Cap tiva Trust Company H onorary Chairpers ons: Ca nne lla & Mike Mullins A nd to all our other sponsors, auction donors 'Give to Give' donors and everyone else who helped with our event.

3 ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 2013Pacific during WWII. I missed a lot of kindergarten that winter, or all of it for all I know because I remember nothing about it except having air raid drills. Living in Sanibel was treasuring nature: all sorts of tropical birds I still have double lion paws and angel wings and many other shells collected at first light after a storm fishing after digging for fiddler crabs my aunts diving for oysters off the pilings of Grandmas dock raccoons attacking metal and locked garbage cans, sometimes succeeding in getting into the garbage. And what a noise! I remember when Baileys store delivered, I think twice weekly, ice covered in sawdust for the icebox and a big jug of drinking water which they lowered into a cradle which made it relatively simple to lower the bottles mouth to fill pans and bottles of drinking water to be stored in the icebox. I remembered the property having crushed shells rather than grass. Also, Vaseline was applied on every chrome part of my grandmothers huge car. One could have been sea sick driving maybe less than a mile from Grandmas house to Baileys store the road was one big washboard. Grandma Mayer taught me to look out the upstairs bathroom window while brushing my teeth. At night I thought the stars were almost close enough to touch but in the morning something even better flamingos cavorting around in the back pond I had a great friend, Jimmy, who lived with his parents behind Grandmas house. I realize now they worked for Grandma. Also adored was Jimmys mother, who kept us well provisioned with her cooking. She had such a practical way to speak. My favorite: Miss Molly, look what you done done. Still makes perfect sense to me. My Aunt Ellie (Elinore Mayer Dormer) is the author of The Sea Shell Islands. She was another adored aunt. Her specialty for spoiling her niece was making elegant clothes for my doll. If I could help (the museum) with any details, such as the kerosene wall lights when the generator shut down, my grandmothers wood stove in the front hall and another one, a big cooking stove in the kitchen. Perhaps you have heard the story why the front door with a fan light was built as the back door? My grandparents planned eventually to have that washboard road removed and the road built behind Grandmas house. I believe that is where the road is now. I took many more trips to Sanibel but nothing could compare with that special winter when I was five. What prompted all the above words was a friend sending me a photo of my grandmothers home which was generously donated to the museum by the present owners of Grandmas home. And I love seeing that Uncle Martins home is there and restored (Morning Glories). Lastly, my love of islands has not abated one bit. Please excuse the length of my (letter). Seems the more I thought of our beloved Sanibel, the more I remembered. Thank you for your wonderful efforts in recreating so much of Sanibels history. The Mayer family.

The commission voted 6-0 with Tom Krekel absent to approve the revised resolution, adding a new section to the land development code. It will now move to the city council for final action. Gibson said once a distressed property is identified, the citys code enforcement officer will verify the complaint and if its confirmed, notification of violation will mailed to the owner. There would be a time frame to bring that property out of its distressed condition. Once the property owner resolves the issue, the code enforcement officer will re-inspect and if it is resolved the case will be closed, Gibson said. If the property owner does not resolve the issue, a notice to appear would be mailed and the case would be scheduled before a hearing examiner, he added. Penalties could include fines and fees. City Attorney Ken Cuyler said fines could be up to $250 a day for an ongoing problem. In a situation where fines arent going to do the trick, you can go to court and get an injunction, prosecute as a misdemeanor there are myriad ways, he said. Owners who cannot afford to make the repairs can work out an abatement plan with the city. The problems with neglected properties arose during the recession and subsequent real estate bust but are now tapering off, Cuyler noted. Some distressed properties are in foreclosure and owned by out-of-state banks and can take longer to resolve. However, Vice Mayor Doug Congress, who was in the audience, said bankers he has talked with try and address (such) issues proactively and take these ordinances very seriously. He also said municipalities throughout Florida have passed this type of ordinance as a result of abandoned properties spawned by the real estate downturn. At the councils direction, vacant lots are not included in the proposed ordinance. Currently, the Land Development Code does not does not require buildings and structures to be maintained or repaired unless they reach the point of being declared unsafe or dangerous. The ordinance, which contains definitions for declaring a property distressed, would provide the city the means to intervene earlier on in the process. It will also help to protect property values, stabilize neighborhoods and prevent dangerous and unsafe building conditions from occurring in the first place, city officials believe.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 201310 How Our Blind Son Searches For Shells On SanibelIn 2009, our family decided to come to Sanibel Island after seeing it on the Travel Channel as one of the best shelling places in the world. We came and experienced Sanibel for the first time. We loved the low key atmosphere of the island, the beautiful beaches and the shells! We learned to read a tide chart quickly and would head out at low tide to find our treasures. We have been back now four times; each time we learn more about shelling and enjoy it more. The different thing about our family from others is that my 15-year-old son, Gabe, is legally blind and loves to shell. From the first time we came here when he was 10, hes jumped right in and found some amazing shells. He loves water and just has a harmony when hes in it. The thing that amazes me as his mom is that he isnt scared to feel his way across the bottom of the ocean. He mostly uses his hands and spends a lot of time under water, being tossed around by the waves... and he loves every minute of it. Hes found sand dollars, whelks, olives, pear whelks, fighting conch, horse conch, banded tulips and more. He comes up from the water and I am usually not far away and says Mom, is this a good one? or Mom, is it empty? Many times, he knows hes got a good one and will say Look at this one! He also will daily ask When is low tide? or as a teenager just waking up around noon asks Did I miss low tide? His other enjoyments on the island are usually catching a movie at the theater, watching cable TV (which we dont have at home), and playing family games in the condo. Gabe has been blind since he was 5 years old due to a rare genetic disease that claimed the life of his older brother. Gabes life was saved by his younger brother who does not have the genetic disease. Though he has had many struggles, he always comes through and makes the most of every situation. Our family chose to come to Sanibel Island because we wanted a place both our boys could enjoy. Our first trip, Gabe was 10 and his brother 8; Gabe out-shelled us all. Now its a challenge to see who gets the biggest shell and who gets the rarest shell. Its hard to go places like Disney and other family destinations because places like that require sight to enjoy a lot of it and are usually very crowded, which is not a good fit for Gabe and our family. While it is a blessing to be able to see the beauty of Sanibel Island, Gabe can still use his other senses to enjoy his time there, too. We just spent June 15 to 22 on the island and, as always, we enjoyed it and are thankful to have been able to come back again.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 201314 Help FISH Restock Its Food Pantry For The SummerAs season winds down on the islands, the FISH of Sanibel, Inc. Food Pantry always sees an increase in demand during the summer months. Many households have their hours cut back because the off-season need for employees decreases. That, combined with the fact that children are out of school and not benefiting from the school breakfast and lunch program, brings more clients to our food pantry to fill the gap, said Maggi Feiner, executive director of FISH. The demand is at its highest in the summer months, and we find it difficult to keep it well stocked during this time. Anyone wishing to help is welcome to bring their unopened, unexpired, perishable or non-perishable food items to the FISH Walk-In Center, Baileys General Store or Bank of the Islands. Donated food items can include canned goods, cereal and beverages. FISH is particularly in need of canned fruit, mayonnaise, cereal, ketchup, juice, kid friendly snacks and Boost and Ensure drinks. Unopened non-food items such as soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, paper towels, toilet paper, laundry detergent, softener, cleaning products, diapers, wipes, pet food, sun block, etc. are also needed. The pantry also accepts frozen or refrigerated items such as meats, fish, vegetables, fruits, dairy products, juices, etc., and is always in need of dairy products, particularly milk. These items have to be brought in to the FISH Walk-In Center during summer hours of operation, Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. We are always grateful for the support of our fellow islanders, said FISH President John Morse. Their generous donations always make a difference in the lives of people who benefit from FISH and the Food Pantry. The walk-in-center is located at 1630B Periwinkle Way, Sanibel, phone 4724775, or log onto www.fishofsanibel. com.

15 ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 2013CROW Case Of The Week: Fishing Lures: A Cautionary Taleby Patricia MolloyA Double-crested cormorant (Phalacrocorax auritus) was admitted to CROW after swallowing a very large fishing lure. The hook had penetrated not only the birds esophagus, but also the membrane that surrounds its heart, causing massive inflammation. I had to remove the entire lure. We were in surgery for hours, said Dr. Heather solemnly. It was certainly a highly-technical surgery. Cormorants are commonly seen on Sanibel, standing ashore or on pilings, wings expanded, drying them in the breeze. The reason behind this behavior is that their feathers do not possess the waterproofing oil of other seabirds. The lack of oil, however, enables them to dive to remarkable depths for fish. Fortunately for the patient, an electrocautery unit had recently been donated to the wildlife clinic. Donations really make a difference, because this bird probably would not have survived the surgery without this piece of equipment. I was performing microsurgery because its esophageal cavity is so small. I was able to cauterize the incisions I had made with the electrocautery unit.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 201316 Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellOur recent guest speaker Sanibel Historical Museum and Village Board President Dorothy Donaldson, along with Museum Manager Emille Alfino came to update us on the outstanding year ahead for the Village. Looking backwards while looking forward can be a little tricky. Knowing where you have been and where you want to go can present a challenge for many of our wellrooted and growing non-profits on the island but none more than the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village. This year the museum will be celebrating its 30th anniversary and when you (and you must) visit the property you will not only get to step back in time as far back as the mid-1800s here on Sanibel but this year will be able to experience the transformation and restoration of Shore Haven. This 1924 Sears Roebuck mail-order kit home was purchased and constructed on bay front acreage by original owners Ross and Daisy Mayer as their family residence. It was also the childhood home of their daughter, Ellie Dormers, founder of the Sanibel Historical Museum. Last year the historic prefabricated home and caretakers cottage was donated to the Village by Terrance and Brenda Cassaday. Although the structures had been modified and modernized over the years the original house and cottage are very much intact. Only the original structures were moved to the village last year at a cost close to $200,000 and future plans are to use these buildings for a new welcome center, museum gallery, underair storage space, office space and small catering kitchen area. The faade will be restored to its original design and interior space and outside entrance will be modified only slightly to meet current commercial building codes. The Museum and Village is a must see for all of us. A stroll through the grounds and buildings will give you a feeling of being transported back in time to the real Sanibel, a rural and peaceful place, where life was hard but community spirit was alive and well. Visit the seven historic buildings moved from their original island sites to the and restored to their original design. Learn the history of the island and visit the old Bailey Store to recapture an experience of bygone days. The City of Sanibel owns the property where the Museum and Village sits and subsidizes upkeep of the property and provides monies for the salaries of two museum employees, along with a small budget for maintenance. The all-volunteer board is responsible for day-to-day operation and fiduciary care and overall well-being of the property. Along with these responsibilities comes the task of fundraising to accomplish certain goals pertaining to the restoration and upkeep of the buildings and providing essential business practices necessary to run the museum and village. Over this next year the board will be required to cover major costs beyond the city contract to restore Shore Haven and the caretakers cottage. All city and federal building codes will have to be adhered to including the building of a handicap ramp and restroom facilities, said Donaldson. Changes will then be made to relocate the entrance and pathways to redirect visitors to the new welcome center. Landscaping will provide attractive screening of the new ramp; native trees will be planted at the same time providing shade throughout the village. This shade will not only provide relief to tourists but help preserve the buildings from weather-related wear and tear, she added. Although Donaldson did mention that monies needed to accomplish these goals will definitely be needed, some of the cost (nearly $200,000) will come from the organizations financial reserves; additional fundraising efforts are being planned. On November 13, the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village will be having a Hard Hat kick-off event. The community will be invited to see the construction under way, hear about upcoming events and how each of us can help to make Shore Haven a beautifully restored building to welcome guests to the village. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets at 7 a.m. every Friday at The Dunes Golf and Tennis Club, 949 Sand Castle Road.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 201318 Birds Eye ViewDo Me A Favor!by Mark Bird WestallI have touched on my next new project in the past. I even put out a challenge to the community in this column about my concerns and received no response. I let the lack of interest slide, but an article written in the June 14 issue of the Island Sun by Barbara Joy Cooley got me thinking and I want to try once again to enlist the help of islanders in determining the status of our nesting wading birds on the island and their relationship to alligators. I have been arguing for years that the nesting wading birds actually look for alligators in the water below potential nesting sites because a patrolling alligator decreases the odds of marauding predators such as raccoons. Cooleys article brought up her concern that removing all the alligators on the island could have unintended consequences, and she was happy to report that her research showed that the number of alligators harvested in the last year had greatly declined compared to previous years. She noted that out of 113 incidents last year, just 21 reports were sent to a trapper, 21 alligators were merely relocated, and only four animals were actually harvested. On the surface, that sounds great. But I noticed while reading her article that most of the incidents she talked about where the animal did not need to be destroyed, it was either on the refuge or the alligator was a small one. Maybe the reason so few alligators were actually harvested last year was because most of the big ones are now dead and the trappers have no interest in harvesting those that do not have marketable hides. Now obviously, having only smaller alligators on the island greatly increases the odds that, even if we dont stop the feeding, any alligator that is trained to approach people expecting a free meal will not be large enough to hurt someone; and thats a good thing! But the question is, do small alligators do as effective a job of protecting rookeries as larger gators? I have been told in the past by one of the foremost crocodilian experts in Florida that small alligators do not do an effective job of deterring predators (i.e. raccoons) from getting into birds nests. Is it possible that from the birds perspective, having only small alligators patrolling the nesting rookeries on the island is like having no alligators at all? My concerns are based on some recent observations. When I first started clearing the Sanibel River for the city several years ago, I found 12 recently-used nests on the section of river that goes between Casa Ybel Road and Tarpon Bay Road. After a few years of trimming the trees in such a way as to promote good nesting sites, the number increased to 42 nests. I felt proud to be part of a city program that was taking steps to enhance the success of our nesting wading birds. But then while travelling that same section of river this winter, I saw no sign of nests being occupied and only one pair of yellow-crowned night herons and one pair of anhingas even showing some interest. Something serious is happening that is now causing the birds to abandon this previously productive nesting area. Besides the possibility that the islands methodical eradication of its moderate to large alligator population is a major contributing factor to the problem, another concern that may have to eventually be addressed is human disturbance on the river. While clearing the river last year, I saw more than once several kayakers enjoying the open waterways I had created. They told me it was so beautiful. Since I do my clearing of the river during the non-nesting season (August to December), I figure that is also a good time for those that have access to the river to enjoy its environs. But what happens if those folks are also enjoying the river in the late winter and early spring during nesting season? To a bird, it is not so scary to have an alligator that cant climb trees below the nest in the water, but it is something completely different to have a human predator on top of the water with the capability to look inside the nest. Because of this concern, I have always kept a close lookout on my guided Sanibel River canoe tours for any signs that the birds are beginning to start nesting activities and whenever I see the first signs, I stop the tours completely. My river trips are not a major part of my business anyway (I usually go in no more than once or twice a month). And I want the birds to continue nesting on the river so my trips in the refuge will continue to be productive. I only hope that the other folks who canoe and kayak the river have the same philosophy. But getting back to the alligator issue, I am concerned that the removal of so many moderateto large-sized alligators from the islands habitats is starting to have a serious impact on our nesting wading birds. Historically, that section of river between Casa Ybel and Tarpon Bay roads had several resident alligators all along the channel. And once I opened the channel up and trimmed the trees so that suitable nesting sites were available to the birds, they took advantage of the increased opportunity to nest. But now, I can only find one female and no male alligators occupying that section of the river and the nesting seems to have stopped. You see, most big alligators will travel out of the river system occasionally and go to deeper water bodies (residential ponds) to look for food and potential mates, especially in the spring and during drought conditions. If someone sees that animal in their lake and complains about them and they have a marketable hide, I fear they will be harvested and not return to where the birds are nesting whether continued on page 25 Since 1976 A Captiva Island Tradition Since 1976 Captivas Finest Waterfront Restaurant Come by Land.... or Come by Sea...

He was also on pain medication, medication to help his heart beat normally, antibiotics and a whole host of other medications to try to keep him stable and the infection under control. Only four days after undergoing such a dramatic medical procedure, the cormorant was ready to be relocated to one of the clinics outdoor flight cages. It is amazing he lived; he is doing fine now. He will remain on antibiotics for approximately 10 days. If everything goes well, he will be released after he has completed the round of antibiotics.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 201322 Tips For Beating The Summer Heatby Capt. Matt MitchellOur oppressive heat really arrived this last week with the official start of summer. Getting out early and off the water by midday is my way to stay somewhat comfortable out there. Another option this time of year is go out at night after the afternoon thunderstorms have passed. Fishing action has been good with both of these options. Like us, the fish just dont seem to be very active during the hottest part of the day. Big high tides this week had the redfish feeding well, at least once you located them. Several times this week I got on some hot redfish action while flipping baits deep up in the shade of the mangroves. Small grunts, pinfish and cut baits all caught reds up to 35 inches. The mouth of the river seems to be holding some of the larger redfish around, but the bite is not as consistent as the mangrove keys and oyster bars in the middle sound. Floating grass made lots of the mangrove shoreline in the northern sound simply unfishable this week. Catch-and-release snook action keeps getting better and better. The passes and the beaches are holding great numbers of snook of all sizes. Walking the beach is a great way to go for shorebound anglers. These snook on the beach can be anywhere from right against the sand out to the first and second troughs. During high sun periods its possible to sightfish these fish. White bucktails and swim baits that look like a shiner are hard to beat for artificials. If you are fishing the beaches from a boat, look for any snags or blowdowns and a few scoops of live chum will quickly let you know if you are in the right place. Live bait is king in and around the passes, with the bigger the bait better. Try to fish during the fastest moving water and target the rips and eddies. In the smaller passes like Blind Pass, it always amazes me how many fish are right out in the middle of the pass. They probably sit behind sand humps on the bottom as they drift against the fast moving tide. Once you locate the areas in the pass the fish are using, youll catch fish after fish. While snook fishing in the passes, we have also seen some good-sized trout in the mix. There are not lots of them but the ones we are catching are the biggest ones around right now, with most of them are over 20 inches. These pass trout prefer a little bit smaller bait. Out on the flats, finding clear water within close proximity of the passes seems to be where the trout are holding. I have been using small grunts and shiners fished under a popping cork. Working the sand holes at the edges of the shallower bars resulted in good numbers of keepersized trout, although by midday this bite was over. Most of these fish having been running 16 to 20 inches. Our tarpon are still around though the number of boats chasing them keeps getting less and less. Hot, sticky, calm conditions are perfect for targeting tarpon; the lower the oxygen content in the water, the more they have to roll and the easier they are to locate. While on a tarpon charter one day midweek, we found a few fish at the mornings first stop up by Captiva Pass, but as the winds looking was slowly increased, the fish seemed to vanish. Running out along the beaches of Cayo Costa and North Captiva, it was not any better. Heading back to the southern sound, I opted to set up at one of my confidence spots. After about 30 minutes, things got really slick calm and tarpon started appearing out of nowhere. Once the fish showed themselves, it did not take long to get a hook-up and land a tarpon. Summertime fishing offers so many choices on what species we want to fish for. Do like the locals do and get out early or late and enjoy some of the most consistent and uncongested fishing of the year.Capt. Matt Mitchell has been fishing local waters since he moved to Sanibel in 1980. He now lives in St. James City and works as a back country fishing guide.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 201324 Shell Museum Reports A Very Good SeasonDid you know that out of 17,500 museums in the United States that The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum is one of 776 accredited institutions? The museum features over 30 exhibits of mollusks from around the world, and is a unique resource, and an integral element of the Islands character and appeal. The museum saw a significant resurgence during the 2013 season receiving its highest attendance revenues in the last four years. One component of the museum mission in this community is to explore and interpret one of the most important leisure activities on the islands of Sanibel and Captiva shelling. It is currently home to 35,000 catalogued collection lots, displays and identifies 305 shallow-water species from Southwest Florida on its website, and showcases an average of 15 live mollusks in its Live Tank exhibit throughout the year. The museum plays a significant role both in the community and abroad with its focus on education hosting students through its Adopt-A-Class program, sending shell kits to schools across the country and providing a variety of programs for visitors to learn more about mollusks and their role in the environment. Between 2012-13, the museum was host to 48,619 visitors, 2,469 visiting students and 128 classes (10 percent more than 2011-12), and had 650,000 visits to its website. And at least 2,300 shell kits have been sent to schools since 1995. The museum always looking for ways to engage in mutually beneficial partnerships with island businesses, hosting popular annual fundraising events such as Under The Sea, Oyster-lympics (oyster eating contest) and the Celebrity Island Dinner. It had 108 dedicate volunteers in 2012 who are wintertime or year-round residents. They range from casual collectors of seashells to scientists who are experienced in the field of malacology to former school principals and educators. All have an abiding interest in the museum and its mission. More than a dozen Sanibel School students are also actively involved as junior docents. Volunteers function as museums exhibit hall docents, school and adult group tour docents, slide show lecturers, Collections Department assistants, and store salespeople.The museum is a unique organization with a strong educational mission and, after almost 18 years of existence, it has become an important presence in our community, said Jos H.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 201326 Joan Mikelson Joan Reynolds Nory McNelis Francie Utley Sanibel-Captiva Art League Artists Exhibit Paintings At Sanibel LibraryMore than 50 paintings by members of Sanibel-Captiva Art League are currently on view at the Sanibel Public Library. By displaying their work in this Annual Summer Art Show, the artists attain goals set during past academic and studio studies and during local painting workshops. These shows provide local artists with encouragement to practice and improve their skills while sharing their work with the community to critique and purchase. Some of the artists have only recently started painting while others have won awards and also show their work in art galleries throughout the year. The ever-popular island scenes with tropical vegetation and wildlife are a favorite for island residents, who wish to decorate their homes as well as for visitors who wish to take a little of the island back so they can remember their vacation in paradise. Each original painting is a different interpretation and unique to the individual artists style. There are exquisitely beautiful watercolors rendered with precision and expert technique while other paintings have wildly-colorful expressionistic brushstrokes that evoke emotional content. As part of the Art Council of Southwest Florida in Lee, Charlotte and Collier counties, the San-Cap Art League also provides opportunities for artists to enter their paintings in several juried shows throughout the year that are judged by nationally-known artists. Frequently, the judge will give a public gallery talk afterward and explain why he chose certain paintings to receive awards and rejected others from the exhibit. Residents and visitors are invited to view these exhibits and attend receptions. The next Art Council Show will be held at BIG ARTS Phillips Gallery this coming December. To view the current show, call the library at 472-2483. For additional information or regular hours, log on to www. sanlib.org. The Sanibel Public Library is located at 770 Dunlop Road.

rfn BUSINESS REAL ESTATE CLASSIFIEDS VOL. 21, NO. 1 SANIBEL & CAPTIVA ISLANDS, FLORIDA JUNE 28, 2013 BSECTIONT hree Cheers F or Kat Cowan, Who Promotes Positivity I n D anceby Jeff L ysiakWhen Kat Cowan speaks, youngsters enrolled at the Sanibel Recreation Centers Summer Day Camp snap to attention. I only answer positive questions from positive people, she says, adding a smile. Now, who wants to learn this dance? A dozen hands shoot into the air, as the room filled with eager hip-hop dancers-intraining prepare to get the next set of steps from Cowan. A native of Fort Myers, Cowan visits the Rec Center every Thursday from 2 to 4 p.m. teaching first, second and third graders hip-hop and modern dancing. She was discovered by Youth Program Coordinator Dave DeFonzo, whose daughters are enrolled in Cowans cheerleading academy. (Dave) told me about the summer camp and asked me if I would be interested in doing some classes, recalled Cowan. This is a great age to work with because they are old enough not to be clinging to mom and dad any more, yet they are well rounded enough that they can come away with some skills that theyll have for a lifetime. Cowan began cheerleading at the Pop Warner Football level in the seventh grade, then went on to cheer for four years at Cypress Lake High School. While in high school, she was selected to perform with cheerleaders from around the country at the prestigious annual Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City as well as in Japan. After high school, I took a long break away from cheerleading and I really missed it, said Cowan, who remembers seeing an advertisement in a local newspaper for cheerleader tryouts for the Miami Dolphins. Despite overwhelming odds, going up against more than 400 other cheerleaders, Cowan made the squad. From 1999 through 2003, she was a Dolphins cheerleader, and was captain during her final year in Miami. Her position on the 36-member team allowed her to travel and perform both around the country and internationally. We performed at the Special Olympics and in the Bahamas, in Mexico, in Monaco aboard the Dwight D. Eisenhower aircraft carrier for the troops on Super Bowl Sunday in 2001, said Cowan. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity and such an honor to perform for our military just amazing. These days, the mother of two enjoys teaching her cheerleading and dancing skills to youngsters at the Torro Training Center, which she operates with her brother, Dan Torregrossa, a martial arts expert. Another brother is a police officer for the City of Cape Coral.continued on page 2B Former Miami Dolphins cheerleader Kat Cowan teaches hip-hop dancing to youngsters at the Sanibel Recreation Center every week during Summer Day Camp photos by Jeff Lysiak Kat Cowan teaches step-by-step dance moves to first and second graders Kat Cowan observes the groups dance moves in a full-length mirror Kat Cowan stressed the importance of stretching before beginning her dance lessons

2B ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 2013 Hortoons From page 1BKat CowanFor years, we used to run junior cheerleading camps with the Dolphins, said Cowan. So I thought what a great concept that was. I could incorporate what I learned as a cheerleader and then add in skills my brothers learned, then develop a curriculum using all three. Im very passionate about teaching. Running through each movement of the hip-hop dance, Cowan tells the kids in the class that being positive is the most important lesson to be learned. No matter what sport they play or what theyre doing, having a positive attitude and working hard will always take you far, added Cowan. For more information about Kat Cowans cheerleading instruction for girls, contact her at the Torro Training Center, 17689 Summerlin Road in Fort Myers, phone 954-647-1844.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 20136B Diving The USS Mohowkby Michael Heider and Patricia MolloyOne year after the sinking of the USS Mohawk, members of The River Weekly News and Island Sun team dove to the depths of the Gulf of Mexico to investigate firsthand the Mighty Mos integration with the ocean. The former WWII ship has been transformed into an artificial reef teeming with life; from small crustaceans and sea urchins to large schools of bait fish, barracudas and 600-pound Goliath groupers. While resting on the boat between dives, our conversation turned to reports of gigantic whale sharks seen gliding gracefully through the waters around the wreck and sea turtles quietly sleeping on her deck. It is remarkable how rapidly the ship has come alive in its environment on the ocean floor. Located only 28 nautical miles off the coast of Captiva and Sanibel islands at a depth of 90 feet, the USS Mohawk is a one-of-a-kind dive destination made possible by Joe Weatherby, ship wrecker for Reef Makers, and Mike Campbell, Lee County natural resources senior environmental specialist. Scubavice Diving Center in Fort Myers organizes guided trips to the USS Mohawk.

8B ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 2013 You may have noticed in the title of todays column my intentional play on words from the famous duet from the Broadway musical Annie Get Your Gun. Most of us are familiar with the song that originally set the stage for the sharpshooting contest between Annie Oakley and Frank Butler. The estate planning tie in, of course, is to a Durable Power of Attorney document in which you name someone who can do anything for you. The purpose behind the Durable Power of Attorney is to have a back up person who can act for you in the event that you are unable or unavailable to act. The trick in these documents is to grant the specific power to the person named in the document (your agent) so that they can write checks, manage your investments, enforce your contracts, sign deeds and do just about anything that you can do. Since we dont know exactly what actions someone may have to do for us if we become incapacitated, many Durable Power of Attorney documents are quite lengthy, as they contain numerous paragraphs about all sorts of powers. Sometimes clients will bemoan the length of the document. Why do we need to be so detailed? they ask. Cant we just say that the person Im naming can just do anything that I can do? I have seen, in fact, some Durable Power of Attorney documents that are rather brief. They might only be one page and say something like this: I grant my agent the maximum power under law to perform any act on my behalf that I could do personally. So, if your son walks into the bank to transact business on your behalf and presents a Durable Power of Attorney document that you signed which contains only this broad language, is the document considered enough is it legal for the bank to honor the document and allow your son to conduct your banking business for you? The answer to my question is a resounding No. The Florida statute on point says an agent may only exercise authority specifically granted to the agent in the power of attorney and any authority reasonably necessary to give effect to that express grant of specific authority. General provisions in a power of attorney which do not identify the specific authority granted, such as provisions purporting to give the agent the authority to do all acts that the principal can do, are not express grants of specific authority and do not grant any authority to the agent. (emphasis mine). So in my example the bank cannot honor a one page Durable Power of Attorney that grants your son the right to transact any business that you might transact, where the document does not also grant the specific authority to transact banking business such as depositing or withdrawing funds and writing checks. In fact, the most recent version of the Florida Durable Power of Attorney statute mandates not only that it specifically mentions the powers that you want your agent to possess, but goes on to require you to initial next to certain powers for them to be effective. Examples of such powers that must be properly initialed include the ability to create trusts, fund assets into your trust, sign beneficiary designations and help with certain estate and life care planning matters. It is likely that the Durable Power of Attorney forms you find in the office supply store or on the internet are insufficient to grant those that you love and trust to conduct your legal business for you. If you become mentally incapacitated and havent already put into place a valid Durable Power of Attorney document that meets the statutory requirements, your loved ones might otherwise have to seek a guardianship in order to conduct your legal, business and financial affairs. This can be quite time consuming and expensive. Some people become quite concerned with the thought of granting such broad powers to another. These are valid concerns. You should never grant powers to someone that you dont trust. If you dont believe that the agent you name in a Durable Power of Attorney document will not have your best interest first and foremost in his or her mind when acting, you should not grant them a power to begin with. And thats not to say that family members who dont always see eye to eye shouldnt give each other Durable Powers. The main issue is whether theyll act in each others best interest. Which leads me to wonder whether Annie Oakley would have given her sharpshooting rival Frank Butler her Durable Power of Attorney. You may recall the musical ends with Annie having won lots of money that saved the Buffalo Bill Wild West Show and that she also ends up marrying Frank Butler. I guess it takes an estate planning attorney to ponder such things. Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at www.sbshlaw.com. Will PowerYou Can Do Anything I Can Do Betterby Craig R.

10B ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 2013 Golf Pro Gene Sauers Has Found Success On The Champions Tour After Battling A Mysterious Diseaseby Ed FrankThe name Gene Sauers is well known in golf circles. He had a steady career on the PGA tour for 20 years, with three PGA wins and earnings of more than $4.6 million. And last year, he joined the Champions Tour when he reached 50 years old. But what is not known by many is the fact that he battled a mysterious disease two years ago that threatened not only his career, but his life. We caught up with Sauers this past weekend during a trip north to Chicago where Sauers was playing in a new Champions Tour event, the Encompass Championship. It was his ninth tournament of the year after launching his 2013 season here in February at the Ace Group Classic in Naples. You might say that I am the Miracle of 51, he laughed, referring to his age and his successful fight to overcome a rare and devastating skin disease known as StevensJohnson syndrome. This time two years ago, the likeable Sauers was in the midst of a seven-week hospital stay where he battled this sinister disease that eats at the body from the inside. He sometimes questioned whether he would ever leave the hospital alive, let alone ever play professional golf again. It was a brutal, painful recovery process that resulted in at least 12 skin grafts on his arms and legs. The cause of the disease is unknown. In fact, doctors first thought he had rheumatoid arthritis The disease has left his arms and legs scarred and discolored, but it didnt cause him to lose his competitive desire. In his nine Champions Tour events this year, he has three top 10 finishes, including two seconds and one third while earning $492,272, placing him 19th in the Charles Schwab Cup rankings. He finished a respectable 14th in Februarys Ace Group Classic. The numerous skin grafts did result in stiffness, although stretching exercises each morning helps alleviate that symptom. I plan to play in every Champions Tour event on the schedule this year 20 or 21 tournaments, he said. He has a two-year exemption on the Champions Tour as a result of his career wins. Based on his early success on the 50-and-older tour, Sauers should have no problem keeping his exemption. Sauers story is one of inspiration to anyone suffering a debilitating illness as it is a story of courage, commitment and the willingness to live. He is an inspiration to his fellow pros who have welcomed him back to the links with warm embraces. We wish him continued good health and success. Miracle Off To Good SecondHalf Start After Winning First-Half Championship The Fort Myers Miracle baseball team, Florida State League South Division Champions for the seasons first-half, got off to a 3-1 start in the second half of the season after winning three of four games last week from Jupiter. The Miracle are home at Hammond Stadium for three games this weekend Saturday, Sunday and Monday against the St. Lucie Mets. On Saturdays 6:05 p.m. game, the Miracle will welcome back TNT basketball analyst Craig Sager, who will pose for pictures and sign autographs. Sagers early announcing career was here at WINK-TV, where he was the sports director. He is known for his colorful suits and shirts. Miracle To Be Represented At Futures Game Current Fort Myers Miracle pitcher Liam Hendriks and former Miracle outfielder Ben Revere have been selected to play in the 12th Annual XM All-Star Futures Game July 11 in Anaheim, California. The games features the best Minor League prospects in the United States against the best from the rest of the world. Hendriks, from Perth Australia, is one of the top pitchers in the Minnesota Twins organization. The 21-year-old right-hander started the week with a 1.38 ERA. continued on page 15B Gene Sauers Larry NorrisSanibel 1025 Periwinkle Way Mon Sat. 10 5 Evenings & Sundays by appointmen t 579.0412 Designer CONDO Choose from over 50 fabrics 50 fabrics 50 and 20 wood samples at the same price!

1. Avoid placing large pieces of furniture across the corner of a room. Rather, place large pieces on an angle. Why? Your room will appear to have move visual movement. This will give a potential buyer the idea that your room might be a bit larger and easier to work with for their own furniture placement. 2. If your home features a vaulted wall, place large pieces of furniture close to the highest wall. This calls attention to the walls architectural interest, and creates balance in your room. 3. If your home features smaller rooms, remember less is more. An underfurnished room is preferable to an overfurnished room. 4. Change your lampshades. This quick fix can give any room an updated appearance especially if you select dramatic black or textured shades. 5. If need a smaller room to seem more expansive, consider purchasing a large wall mirror. Mirrors definitely give the illusion of more space. Just be sure to take special care in placing your mirror. You want to be sure that what it reflects is a pleasing sight! 6. Add some texture. Throws, tasseled pillows, or even an inexpensive area rug can create a warmer, cozier feel in any room. 7. Let there be light! Be sure your window treatments are in the open position, flooding as much light as possible into each and every room in your home. 8. Add some permanent florals and greenery. Dont go overboard, but adding a silk tree in a bare corner, or a floral arrangement on a dining room table adds lots of ambiance to any room. 9. Go crazy with color... or not! When selling a home, neutral shades are always the best. Its difficult for a buyer to see beyond the colors they see when they enter a room. 10. Re-accessorize! Your cherished mementos, while precious to you, might actually create a barrier in the mind of a buyer. Think about simple accessory plans with minimal clutter. Perhaps a display of leather-bound books paired with small greenery, and a small picture on an easel. Jeanie Tinch is an interior designer on Sanibel/Captiva Islands.

14B ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 2013 S chool S martby S helley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My son will enter ninth grade in August and we are planning his classes now. I want to know more about AP classes and dual enrollment classes. Is one better than the other? Thomas M., Fort Myers Thomas, This is a complex and important question. Advanced Placement (AP) classes are classes taken in high school that may provide high school credits and may provide college credits if the student taking the class passes an end of year test with a satisfactory grade. Dual enrollment or dual credit is a program that allows high school students to simultaneously earn college or vocational credit toward a postsecondary diploma, certificate or degree at a Florida public institution that will also count as credit toward a high school diploma. Other states have their own unique programs. There are clear differences in these two types of classes in regard to who can enroll, class structure, cost and credits. Either choice provides students with challenging coursework that may help them complete a college degree more quickly. Enrollment in an AP class varies among high schools; some require a teachers recommendation and of course the school must offer these courses. In Florida, juniors or seniors with a GPA of at least 3.0 may participate in dual enrollment and as well as any admissions criteria set by the postsecondary institution they student attends. Currently, AP courses cost approximately $89 in order to take the exam. There may be other costs associated with the class depending on the school. Public school students who are dually enrolled in a Florida public college or university are exempt from registration, matriculation or laboratory fees for courses taken through dual enrollment and textbooks are provided free of charge to these students. In AP classes a passing score on an exam is a 3 out of 5, but the required minimum score for college credits differs among colleges with many requiring at least a score of 4 or 5. Dual enrolled students are graded on their coursework through the semester and receive college credits/transcript after completing the course. Out of state and elite colleges are not likely to accept the credits, but most state colleges and universities do. The two approaches dual credit and AP offer different ways to helping high school students earn college credits. AP prepares students to pass an exam to prove their mastery of college-level curriculum. Dual credit in effect enrolls students in college courses while they are still in high school, allowing them to earn credit for both. Experts say both approaches can work and many students are able to gain an entire year or more of college before they even get there, but there are drawbacks to both. Students in AP classes, for example, may find that although they passed the exam, their score isnt high enough to earn college credit. At some colleges, even the highest mark wont count or a college may only accept credits from two or three AP classes even though the student may have taken far more AP classes. For dual enrollment students the drawbacks include issues with time spent commuting to take college courses as well as maturity concerns. Expectations both continued on page 22 E dison S tate College Offering ACE Personal Trainer Certification Course Edison State College Continuing Education is offering a prep course for individuals who wish to become certified ACE (American Council on Exercise) Personal Trainers.

Insurance Tip Buy Rental Car Insuranceby Marge MeekHaving just returned from a trip to Puerto Rico, I thought of my rental car experience, which turned out fine, but certainly could have been a lot different. After declining the rental companys two-tier insurance package that started at $25 per day, we walked around the car with the attendant, who notated more nicks than I did. Remembering that I had also given them a $500 credit card damage deposit, I started to rethink my decision about using my personal auto insurance instead of theirs, but off we went to the island of narrow streets and heavy traffic. Here are the tips on being comfortable with your decision not to buy insurance from a rental car company. Understand the rental car companys contract. The issues that can be trouble are things like fair market value of the car, their estimates of repair costs, loss of use charges, diminished value, towing and storage. It is very important to understand their terms and conditions, like non-listed driver (valet parking attendant?), use on non-paved roads and mandatory locked doors policy. Vacations spots like Mexico, Bahamas and Europe may be excluded from your auto policy. Buy the rental car firms collision damage waiver insurance. Then, you can drop off the keys and walk away and your worry-free vacation will be a total success.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) You might be uneasy about an offer from a longtime colleague. But before you reject it, study it. You might be surprised at what it actually contains. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Deal firmly with a difficult family matter. Its your strength they need right now. You can show your emotions when the situation begins to ease up. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A recent dispute with some co-workers might not have been completely resolved. But other colleagues will be only too happy to offer support of your actions. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Let go of that Piscean pride long enough to allow someone to help you with a surprising development. That could make it easier for you to adjust to the change. BORN THIS WEEK: Your willingness to open up to possibilities is why people like you are often among our most popular political leaders. On July 7, 1852, according to Sir Arthur Conan Doyles stories, Dr. John H. Watson is born. Coincidentally, the author died on this day in England at the age of 71. His first Sherlock Holmes story, A Study in Scarlet, was published in Beetons Christmas Annual in 1887. On July 3, 1863, on the third day of the Battle of Gettysburg, Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lees last attempt at breaking the Union line ends in disastrous failure, bringing the most decisive battle of the American Civil War to an end. Exhausted, both armies held their positions until the night of July 4, when Lee withdrew. On July 5, 1946, French designer Louis Reard unveils a daring two-piece swimsuit at a Paris swimming pool. A Parisian showgirl modeled the new fashion, which Reard dubbed bikini, inspired by a U.S. atomic test that took place off the Bikini Atoll in the Pacific Ocean earlier that week. On July 4, 1954, Marilyn Sheppard is beaten to death inside her home in Cleveland. Her husband, Dr. Sam Sheppard, claimed to see a man with bushy hair fleeing the scene, but the authorities charged Sheppard with killing his pregnant wife. Sheppards case provided the loose inspiration for the hit television show The Fugitive. On July 2, 1964, in a nationally televised ceremony, President Lyndon Johnson signs into law the historic Civil Rights Act. The Civil Rights Act met tough opposition in the House and a lengthy, heated debate in the Senate before being approved. On July 6, 1976, in Annapolis, Md., the United States Naval Academy admits women for the first time in its history with the induction of 81 female midshipmen. In May 1980, Elizabeth Anne Rowe became the first woman member of the class to graduate. On July 1, 1984, the Motion Picture Association of America, which oversees the voluntary rating system for movies, introduces a new rating, PG-13. The action film Red Dawn, starring Patrick Swayze and Charlie Sheen, became the first PG-13 movie to be released in theaters. It is still not known who made the following sage observation: The difference between involvement and commitment is like an eggs-and-ham breakfast: The chicken was involved; the pig was committed. If you wanted to use fossil fuels to equal the amount of energy released by the sun onto the Earth, youd have to burn 550 billion tons of coal every day. Lightning isnt solely a phenomenon of Earth: Astronomers have noted lightning bolts on Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Venus. In 1915, the average annual income for a family in the United States was $687. You might be surprised to learn that the name Adam isnt actually a proper name in the classical Hebrew language; its a generic term for a human being. If youre planning a visit to the village of Chester in the United Kingdom, be glad youre not from Wales. In that town, the law says that any Welshman found within the city walls after sunset may be shot with a longbow. In Germany, cacao was used for medicinal purposes long before it was used to make chocolate. It is, perhaps, unsurprising that the first duty-free airport shop -those favored sources of tax-free liquor -was in Shannon, Ireland. It was in the very early years of the 20th century when, in his Devils Dictionary, Ambrose Bierce defined a corporation as an ingenious device for obtaining individual profit without individual responsibility. In Alabama, every purchase of a deck of playing cards is subject to a special 10-cent tax. Those who sell the cards must pay a $1 to $3 license fee. When you do the common things in life in an uncommon way, you will command the attention of the world. -George Washington Carver THIS WEEK IN HISTORY STRANGE BUT TRUE THOUGHT FOR THE DAY18B ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 2013

About two weeks earlier, Velardi came to the rescue of an older gentleman who had started to pass out. Velardi checked the guests vital signs and called 911. This one also had a happy ending. Velardi, a bartender at Sundials restaurants for over three years, took EMT courses while attending Edison State College, completing over 300 hours of ride time with emergency responder vehicles. continued on page 20B

22B ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 2013deaRPharmacistJoint S cript For A rthritis Pain by S uzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: I have osteaoarthritis and take ibuprofen and hydrocodone. Glucosamine helps, but even after six months, Im still stiff and riddled with pain. What else can I do? DY, Sarasota, Florida Youre not alone, 27 million Americans live with osteoarthritis (OA) and the affliction worsens over time. Left untreated, it can completely disable you, so luckily you are doing something. I like glucosamine. I prefer the glucosamine sulfate form over other forms, because it provides sulfur to the body... sulfur, not to be confused with sulfa, a drug that many people are allergic to. OA always involves pro-inflammatory cytokines; youve heard me mention those before. Cytokines are pain-causing chemicals. But get used to the word cytokine, I use it frequently in my writings. Cytokines arent bad until your body pumps them out in excess, and thats exactly what happens with OA, and its exactly what you need to reduce. That controls pain and improves range of motion. Ibuprofen reduces the cytokines called prostaglandins and IL-1B. You want that. Glucosamine is a precursor for glycosaminoglycans and that is a component of joint cartilage. Consider these: MSM This is a sulfur-based compound that is actually a by-product of DMSO (DMSO is applied topically to joints, but its intended for vet purposes, the FDA doesnt like humans using it even though many of you do). Anyway, MSM, an oral supplement is sold at health food stores and does wonders for joint pain. Bromelain This pineapple extract gets mixed reviews. One study found it to be as effective as diclofenac, a prescription anti-inflammatory. I personally like this and frequently recommend it. Devils Claw Slightly more exotic, devils claw is so named because of its hooked fruit. A 2011 study from Phytotherapy Research concluded that the herb could block the release pro-inflammatory cytokines. In another study, Devils Claw performed as well as the prescription drug Vioxx (now off the market, however Celebrex which is safer does remain). The point is that Devils Claw is strong; it interacts with medicine, ask your doctor if its right for you. Boswellia A resin from a tree. A 2013 study from the Journal of Headache and Pain studied the biological active ingredients in boswellia (pentacyclic triterpene acids) for their potent antiinflammatory and analgesic properties. Boswellic acid is another major active ingredient. This is (in my mind) Mother Natures ibuprofen. This may sound obvious, but take pressure off your joints. Extra weight does no favor to your painful knees and hip joints. You may have to start gently with yoga, or Tai Chi, but keep those joints moving. And finally, consider ramping up immunity, some forms of arthritis are due to infections, either fungal, viral or bacterial. Compounds in green tea reduce the cytokine called TNF alpha, often high in arthritic conditions. One cup of green (or matcha) tea could beat up germs and improve immunity. The L-theanine it contains is relaxing too. Drink it daily. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

Close That L eakby Karen L. Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAMLDo you ever feel that you have less energy when you face in a certain direction? Do you walk into your office and sit down and immediately feel drained? Or do you stand in the studio and just dont seem to have the energy to work on that painting or project? Having worked with many clients that experience these phenomena, it is explainable energetically. There seems to be a pattern with many clients showing that the area where they spend the most time has a correlation with a leak in their energetic system. One client recently advised that her workshop and porch on the bayou was facing in the same direction as where her system was weak. So, you ask, what is she talking about? In the s, a scientist named Frances Nixon researched the correlation between the bodys energetic axis and that of the Earth. She determined that when a baby is born, a temporary energetic field is created around the baby to enable it to cope with the gravitational pull and electromagnetic forces that otherwise would dramatically impinge on the child. To protect the child entering this new magnetized environment external to the protection of the womb, a Vivaxis field is created to serve as a bridging force aligning the infants physical direction at the time of birth with the Earths energies. This shield fades in about three months. The polarities of the Vivaxin field are independent of the Earths magnetic field. However, if stress or other factors do not permit the field to dissolve, that person will experience weakness when facing in the direction of their birth, since the field is now interfering with other energies of the body rather than enhancing them. Thus, if one has a Vivaxin syndrome, he or she is vulnerable when facing in a particular direction. Sometimes, there can be two or rarely three directions where the per son is at risk. So, you ask, why is she telling us this and what can be done about it? When working with a person initially, in addition to getting all the energies humming through activation of the systems with the 5 Minute Routine, a foundational piece for healing is to make certain that the person does not have a Vivaxin syndrome. Unfortunately, correcting the syndrome is beyond the scope of explaining in this column. However, the good news is that it is easily correctable by a trained Eden Energy Medicine practitioner or by purchasing Donna Edens book Energy Medicine and following the instructions on pages 330 to 333. I would be remiss in not educating you about this condition, since it is a foundation for optimizing your health and healing. Isnt so sweet that you can learn these techniques your self? Have fun with your energy! Next weeks topic is Activate All 9 Energy Systems In 5 Minutes, Part 1. If you have a questions for Semmelman, 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. Got A Problem? D r. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: Can you provide some tips on achieving vibrant health?A: Best-selling author, Ob/Gyn Dr. Christiane Northrup is a leading expert in womens health and wellness. She states that the way to help women of all ages achieve vibrant health is by teaching them to tap into their inner wisdom, necessary to experience joy and fulfillment throughout life. Happy people, we know through research, lead the most fulfilled lives. Studies have been done in cultures where people have longer life spans than in our culture. These cultures have strong family ties, a strong spiritual life, and trusted friendships, which lead to much lower rates of depression and anxiety. These people live life with meaning and purpose and remain active throughout their lives. Mind-body health, therefore, is about living your life in a way that makes you feel content, joyful, and connected with others. People from cultures with long life spans prioritize family and create strong relationships that are meaningful. Research has shown that older couples who have healthy relationships and are healthy enough to have sex at least two times a week, live longer and have much more satisfaction in life. What is really interesting is that they look about ten or more years younger. We are quick to see how the aging process is changing in our culture. The media have given us a profile of how someone should look, especially women, at a certain age. Entertainment Tonight (a popular TV show) informs us about how all the beautiful people maintain their youthful looks and can make average people think they need to run to a plastic surgeon and undergo every procedure known to man. Also, with so many antiaging products and treatments on the market, people are continually encour aged to look younger. What I am suggesting here, and what research shows us, is that nurturing ourselves and our relationships can contribute to a more youthful look, genetics being equal. As is accepted among many women today, we are not our grandmothers or our mothers. Now 60 is the new 40, and 50 the new 30.

23B ISLAND SUN JUNE 28, 2013 Dr. DaveTotally S tokedby D r. D ave HepburnSkateboarding is PAIN personified. A skateboarding park recently opened up around the corner from my clinic. This has added color (primarily red) to my practice and hipness to my vocabulary. With no shortages of fractured this and lacer ated that now skating through my office door, I have become, unofficially, the doctor to these cement-surfin sons of stitches. Yo, doctor dude, I was carvin some phat air, like I was totally amped bro, when I ate it and bought me this gnarlacious swellbow. Translated: My elbow hurts. What has surprised me is that these swellbow, tweaker and hipper victims are not only 16-year-old baggy-pant boarders but also dudes and dudettes in their 20s and 30s who actually hold jobs that dont require supersizing stuff. In fact, 170 injured skateboarders who were hospitalized last year in North America were over age 65! And so I have decided to give the wheels a go. Sort of. My sons, with a twinkle in their eyes, convinced me that I should try rollerblading, a sport which I have eschewed, possibly due to the frequency with which rollerbladers tend to end up on the hood of my car with relatively little effort on my behalf. And for a lifelong hockey player, rollerblades are frightening. Stopping on ice skates means a quick turn to the side. Doing the same thing on rollerblades means a quick turn to the hospital. And so it was, that with 600 pounds of armor draped about my joints, head and any skin that might possibly become intimate with asphalt, I teetered on these blades like a newborn giraffe on ice on the Serengeti during an unusual equatorial blizzard, during a hockey game. Cowabunga, dad! My fear of these wheels of death was validated when I met my first speed bump at ramming speed. Unable to brake, I was promptly launched headlong, in a horizontal plane, landing with an unceremonious splat and coming to a halt only after deploying my elbows as brakes. First day, first swellbow, a condition known to the uncool as bursitis of the elbow. At least I didnt have a hipper or a tweaker. More than 100,000 skateboard injuries show up in the emergency room each year, a third of whom have less than one weeks experience. Most experienced boarders treat themselves, usually by punching their head repeatedly until the injury hurts less than their head. Skaters suffer some significant smacks to the skull, followed by broken wrists, face and ankles. Hipper: Yo, doctor dude. I got this outrageous hipper from goofy-footin into a fakie. To inspect a patients hip, it is necessary to remove some clothing. but given the skaters sartorial tastes, this is rarely required. Yep, I can see it from here, you have a traumatic greater trochanteric bursitis. Whoa, awesome! Can I keep skating or do I smoke some, ... er... play xBox for a while? Reach down to where you think your hip is located. Feel that bony thing jutting out? (If not, consider Atkins.) This is the infamous greater trochanter, a part of the femur that is covered in a fluid-filled sac called a bursa, a shock absorber that prevents muscle from rubbing up against bone. Bump this too hard or lie on it too long and the bursa will be traumatized, swell and hurt. If it doesnt get better on its own, then a well-placed cortisone shot works wonders. Swellbow: Another bodacious bursa sits over the bony part of the bent elbow. This olecranon bursa is easily traumatized as well as easily infected. This swollen bursa (bursitis) blows up like a blowfishs blowpop and feels like a jug of water has been taped to your arm. I will often drain these and place a pressure dressing on them (or they fill right back up). If they do fill back up, then a cortisone injection may keep it at bay. An infected bursa, however, is a serious bummer given its proximity to the joint. Tweaker: Kickflip down a rail, fall on an outstretched hand and you may suffer several serious injuries to the wrist. You may fracture one of eight wrist bones, the scaphoid bone being the most dangerous. The fracture may not be overtly obvious, but persistent pain where the thumb seems to join the wrist (the snuffbox) is highly suspicious. More than a wrist tweaker, if a fractured scaphoid is not set properly, you may be in for some real gnarly surgery. Yep, these skaters have brought some outrageous injuries into my clinic, and for that... I am totally stoked.

Mom A nd Me by L izzie 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, We joined a group of neighbors to go to a four-lecture series on birding. The lectures were going to be given by a local general surgeon whose hobby is, by the old-fashioned term, bird watching. It sounded very interesting to all of us, so we signed up. I recently have been troubled with abdominal problems, and we thought we should get a second opinion. My husband and I immediately thought I should go to this doctor and maybe he would give me good service. Good service, well, I dont think so! At the lecture after my tests, he immediately started giving me the results all within earshot of the other members of the group. I had a spot on my lung, which may be malignant. My pancreas was not normal, and on and on he went. I have reason to be very worried about my medical problems. I am so embar rassed and annoyed that so many of my neighbors also know of my problems. Was it ethical for him to treat me like this? Andrea Dear Andrea, So goes the problem of dual relationships Having your doctor as a social friend, having your staff members daughter as a tenant. These relationships are very difficult to manage. Your physician should not have discussed your private health information in such a public setting: with the privacy laws of today, I am surprised he did. Pryce Dear Andrea, It seems most unethical to me for you to be treated in this manner, but I am not an attorney or a physician. Any patient who feels that they have been treated in an unprofessional, unethical manner or that their privacy has been invaded can file a complaint with their states medical board. The complaint can be done very easily at the medical boards website or mailed to their address in the state where you live. If you file a complaint, you may be helping others as well as yourself. Lizzie Lizzie and Pryces email address is momandmeaging@hotmail.com.

Lightly dust both sides of the cutlets with the Latin spice mix. Preheat a large sized saut pan over medium high heat. Add 1 tablespoon canola oil to preheated saut pan. Add the spiced cutlets to the pan carefully without crowding the pan. Cook chicken for 2 to 3 minutes per side. The chicken should be golden brown and cooked completely through. Insert a internal cooking thermometer into the chicken cutlet, it should read 165 degrees for correct doneness. Remove from pan and let cool slightly. Turn the heat on the pan down to medium low. Add 1/2 cup of water to pan and stir to remove any bits of flavor from the bottom of the pan. Reduce the water in the pan by half (this should only take a minute or so). Add lime juice to the pan and continue to stir. Add the butter to the pan sauce while stirring constantly. The butter should blend with the pan sauce to form a thicker pan sauce. After the butter is combined to make the sauce, remove from heat and add cilantro. Taste pan sauce and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Serve the chicken with rice and fresh vegetables for a complete meal. Spoon the pan sauce over the chicken. Garnish with extra cilantro and lime wedges.
