Since aboveaverage is looking more and more like average, its a good time to look at two programs that can help you and your community be more prepared for what could be heading your way. Be Storm Smart Are you from Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Delaware, Rhode Island, Massachusetts or New Hampshire? Do we have a website for you http://stormsmartcoasts.org/. StormSmart Coasts is a resource for coastal decision makers looking for the latest and best information on how to protect their communities from weather and climate hazards. Jealous at being left out? Maine, New Jersey and Connecticut are coming soon. In addition for being a resource for coastal decision makers, it is a great resource for coastal residents as well. Each member state has its own site. These include information on what to do before the storm (planning), during the storm (emergency contacts), after the storm (safe and smart recovery) and funding. Each of these pages include related pages; for example, the planning page includes a link to Quick and Easy Way to Create a Storm Surge Map. There is no membership fee but, for more active participation, membership is required. It is purely a matter of providing basic information and determining a password. Members can then be part of public, private or hidden groups. Right now, they have 99 groups ranging from those discussing the Community Rating System (CRS) and flood insurance to coastal resiliency to numerous state groups. It is an opportunity to interact with people with similar interests. This connection also allows people to find peers and to connect with them. Within the groups, members can share files. They are also active on Twitter and Facebook. Twitter posts and other RSS feeds are included on the website. The website also includes a national blog which for the most part summarizes federal documents, which can be helpful to communities. Be Storm Ready The National Weather Service (NWS) has a nationwide program that focuses on community preparedness for all kinds of weather disasters, certainly valuable since few of us are lucky enough to have just one form of cautionary catastrophe. And, while this is a community effort, its beneficial to individuals engaged in the preparations as well as those wholl benefit from the rigors of readiness. To win a Storm Ready designation for your community, it must meet certain criteria (based on population) that NWS sets forth, which include: gency operations center. weather warnings. weather conditions. through community meetings. plan, including training weather spotters and holding emergency exercises. More details are available online at www.stormready.noaa.gov and, if your community is at risk from any kind of severe weather, its worth a look. We regularly remind people how valuable wide, healthy beaches and high dune systems are to keep severe storm damage at bay. But storm readiness is much more than just having your coastline ready its a community-wide effort on myriad fronts. These two storm-planning efforts could help your community be better able to survive the next bout with bad weather whatever its nature.

Last Thursday afternoon, officials announced the three areas where they plan to conduct these controlled burns: on the Bailey Tract, at Legion Curve and along a stretch of Sanibel-Captiva Road. During last weeks public information session, which was co-hosted by Deputy Refuge Manager Joyce Palmer and Supervisory Refuge Ranger Toni Westland, officials also announced that the target start date for the prescribed burns is Monday, July 8. Because weather can influence whether or not a prescribed burn will take place including factors such as temperature, wind, humidity and precipitation the scheduled start date for the burn may be pushed back a day or two, or even a week, depending upon forecast conditions. According to refuge officials, carefully planning and conducting managed burns can prevent the likelihood of catastrophic wildfires and help preserve the natural ecology of the area. This technique called a prescribed burn will reduce the amount of dried vegetation or overgrowth, known as fuel. Prescribed burns are planned and carefully conducted by well-trained and experienced wildland firefighters operating under strict conditions, known as prescriptions. According to Jeremy Conrad, wildlife biologist at the refuge, conducting prescribed burns at dedicated areas of the island where there is evidence of dead trees and over growth actually minimizes the threat of a catastrophic wildfire while maintaining public safety. A secondary benefit of the burn is to wildlife, which will improve the habitat of several native species. These include the gopher tortoise, the eastern indigo snake and the Sanibel rice rat. Smoke is another concern, therefore, plans call for specific wind conditions to minimize smoke impacts to roads and communities. A prescribed fire will not be conducted if the prescription cannot be met, i.e. if the proper wind conditions and relative humidity are not present on the day of the planned burn, the burn will not be conducted. During the summer of 2012, officials burned 355 acres at the biological site. This years three individual sites collectively total 335 acres: Last burned on February 18, 2009, the Bailey Tract includes eight components totaling 100 acres Called a type 1, high complexity burn, the Legion Curve area was last burned in June 2004IS lL AND SS UN JU lL Y 5, 20136

9 ISLAND SS UN J ULUL Y 5, 2013 NN o Child LL eft On SS hore ProgramThe Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) and Captiva Cruises conducted a water borne experience for kids from Brightest Horizons Child Development Center through the No Child Left On Shore Environmental Education Outreach Project last week. Many of the children were out on the water for the first time. Observing dolphins in their natural habitat, collecting shells, making sandcastles, having fun in the water and letting their joy and wonder explode makes these opportunities an invaluable experience. The No Child Left On Shore initiative is a cooperative endeavor of SCCF and Captiva Cruises, who see a real need to provide the younger generation of Southwest Florida with an opportunity to experience first hand the invaluable resources of the Caloosahatchee Watershed and estuarine environment. Cuts in public funding for school environmental education field trips have drastically reduced the number of students who can experience for themselves the impor tance of our coastal resources. Many families within Southwest Florida especially those with language, cultural, physical and economic barriers do not have the means to get out on the water. Too much of our local population who live close to the Back Bay Estuary have never held a live sea star, shrimp or snail. They have never waded in shallow sea grass beds and observed a horseshoe or spider crab, and have never learned by taking part in hands on outdoor activities. It is this segment of our Southwest Florida community that SCCF and Captiva Cruises is reaching out to and would like to engage by providing them with the opportunity to take part in water borne experiential field trips. Additional information about SCCF and Captiva Cruises No Child Left On Shore initiative, or to sponsor a local youth group to take part in this exciting project, may contact Kristie Anders at SCCFs Nature Center at 472-2329.

Guest speaker Michelle Sargis, FCPP, CPTED and crime prevention specialist with the Lee County Sheriffs Department, introduced participants to the physical aspects of self-defense and gave them the opportunity to practice techniques learned during the workshop.

Biologists found an approximately 1-month-old female kitten Saturday in the Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park in southwest Florida, near where they released the young adult panther on January 31. We were very excited to find this panthers kitten, said Dave Onorato, FWC panther biologist. The fact that this panther has given birth is positive news for the recovery of this endangered species and a testament to the hard work of all involved in its rescue and rehabilitation. Biologists estimate the female panther became pregnant about three weeks after her release, when she was only 21 months old. That age is somewhat younger than the typical age of first conception for female panthers the FWC has documented. While biologists are encouraged the female became a contributor to the population so quickly, it was not completely unexpected, given that her home range is within prime panther habitat. After discovering the kitten over the weekend, biologists evaluated its health and tagged it for identification purposes to document whether it eventually becomes part of the adult population. An estimated 100 to 160 adult and subadult panthers remain in south Florida. Kitten survival rates are pretty low, but this kitten looked healthy and feisty, said Onorato. The kitten has a chance of one day contributing to the population as well. The FWC rescued the now young adult panther and its brother as 5-month-old kittens in September 2011 after their mother was found dead. They were then raised at the White Oak Conservation Center in Yulee until they were ready for release. The FWC released the male panther in April at the Rotenberger Wildlife Management Area in south Florida. Florida residents can support panther conservation efforts through the purchase of a Protect the Panther license plate. Fees from license plate sales are the primary funding source for the FWCs research and management of Florida panthers. The success story of this once orphaned panther giving birth in the wild following its rescue and rehabilitation would not be possible without license plate funds, said Carol Knox, FWCs Imperiled Species Section Leader. To report dead or injured panthers, call the FWCs Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888404-FWCC (3922), #FWC or *FWC on a cell phone, or text Tip@MyFWC.com.

I am not sure who is more excited that the Taste of the Islands is returning to The Dunes, said Leilani Sivsov, The Dunes Golf and Tennis Club general manager. Peter Savage, committee chair for the 32nd Taste of the Islands said, The Dunes provides a perfect setting to hold the Taste event because of its beauty, accessibility and space. CROWs Taste of the Islands will be held on Sunday, November 10 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The public can sample a wide variety of tastes from the more than 20 local participating restaurants. The event will also feature live entertainment, a silent auction, T-shirts and other items for sale from CROWs gift shop. Sponsorships for the Taste of the Islands are available and include complimentary admission and entry into the VIP Pavilion which features The Dunes swimming pool. To become an event sponsor, contact James Robinson, CROWs development director, at 472-3644, ext. 221 or email development@crowclinic.org.

During breeding season, adults nest in the woody shrubs of coastal and inland wetlands throughout the Caribbean and the Americas (North, Central and South), at which time they display prominent plumes on their shoulders, necks and heads. While the snowy egret is native to the Sunshine State, populations are becoming less common in northern Florida dur ing winter months. These lovely birds, however, are often seen standing on the grass next to Sanibels roads impatiently waiting for traffic to stop long enough for them to cross. An emaciated snowy egret was admitted to CROW last month, too weak to fly. Due to its grave condition, its hospital stay began inside the wildlife clinics Intensive Care Unit. Captivity was par ticularly stressful for the patient, prompting Dr. Heather Barron to move it outside to one of the small flight cages. Soon thereafter, it began receiving its treatments outside, including physical exams and medications. As Dr. Heather noted, Since he is outside now, I was hoping he would catch lizards by himself and be more comfortable than he was inside. He is really enjoying walking. Despite the transfer, the egret steadfastly refused to eat on its own. Left without an alternative, Dr. Heather ordered that it be force-fed three times per day and that its weight be carefully monitored. The staff of DVMs and students are working diligently to save the life of patient #1412 in the hopes that it will regain its strength and health so that it can be released back into the wild. While monetary donations are invaluable, it is the volunteers that have made CROW successful for more than four decades. They collectively donate thousands of hours each year performing necessary tasks that allow the doctors and veterinarian interns (who often work more than 12 hours per day) to care for the tens-of-thousands of sick, injured and orphaned patients that have been treated at CROW.

Part IIby Mark Bird WestallSo, how do we find out if there is a problem with our nesting wading birds on Sanibel? Back in 1981, I started The International Osprey Foundation (TIOF) because ospreys like many high-order predators at the time were in trouble in this country. People concerned about the species chances for survival on the island had already initiated putting up artificial nesting platforms for the birds before I got here, and as I became more involved with the program, I decided it would be a good idea to create the foundation and establish a monitoring program to check on osprey productivity. And, obviously, that program was a smashing success! I now think that something similar to that could be done for the islands nesting wading birds. I am not talking about a big organization like TIOF that needs a board of directors and all the hassles that come with that approach. Our nesting wading birds could be initially monitored with just a little local interest and the help of social media. Locals could make simple observations and tallies and report their findings to a central location. Once the data was collected for a while, professionals could look at the information gathered and determine if more steps should be taken. I am willing to act as the focal point for collecting this basic data so we can have a better understanding of just how well our nesting wading birds are doing and if the current alligator policies on the island are affecting non-target species. People on the island spend hours upon hours driving through the Wildlife Drive looking for interesting bird sightings and making observations. Seems to me that some of that interest could be directed towards identifying what species of wading birds are nesting on the island, estimating their numbers, establishing when and where they are nesting, tabulating (from a distance) an estimate of young produced during nesting season, and whether or not alligators are present near the nests and the approximate size of any gator spotted in the nesting area. So, do me a favor! I bet that everyone knows someone that lives in a neighborhood where there are nesting birds nearby, like the Periwinkle Trailer Park, Murex Lakes or Sanibel Bayous. Some of you may have birds nesting where you can watch them from your backyards. Let those folks know what I want to do and tell them to get in touch with me. It would only take an email. Most, if not all, of the nest sites documented will be in freshwater habitats; either along the Sanibel River or on development ponds. Lets begin this summer to put together a base line of where our wading birds have historically been spotted nesting on the island. Then, next nesting season, we can begin to collect productivity data. As a word of caution, at this time, I do not want people travelling up and down the remote parts of the Sanibel River searching for signs of nesting birds. My work along the river will give me all the data I need from that area. And the two rookeries in mangroves on the island (the little islands in the middle of Tarpon Bay and at the end of Wildlife Drive) have no need to be identified because the refuge is already collecting data from those places. And anyway, once they put in the new water control structure at the Alligator Curve, I predict the yellow-crowns will stop nesting there because the channel below the nests will become saline; the alligators will move somewhere else; and then the birds will abandon the site. The species that I am interested in collecting data on are all the wading birds (herons and egrets, ibises and the night herons), plus anhingas. I am not as interested in green herons and great blue herons because they seem to use different strategies for protecting nests. So, if you are reading this article and have seen a wading bird nest, let me know where the nest is and what species is using it. If there are several nests, just send me the approximate number. And, of course, whether or not you have seen any alligators in the water around the nest(s) and how big it is (remember the old size estimation trick; for every inch measured from the eyes to the nostril, that is how long the gator is in feet). You can get my email address from my website listed at the end of this article. I also want to stress, once again, that no disturbance should be placed upon the birds in order for anyone to collect the information I have asked for. Make your observations from a safe distance. If the birds are nesting in your backyard, you probably already know how close is too close. Use good judgment! Remember, you are the scariest of predators to them and they will believe that anything you do to get a closer look is only so you can kill them! Dont make them feel like they should leave and abandon their nesting area. If you guys help me collect this information, it will help me understand whether or not big alligators are impor tant to the ecological health of this island. Is Sanibel still the kind of community that is interested in this type of project? I hope so.

19 ISLAND SS UN J ULUL Y 5, 2013 Plant Smart LL awn Orchidby Gerri ReavesLawn orchid (Zeuxine strateumatica) is a terrestrial orchid that has become naturalized self-sustaining without cultivation and crops up in Floridas disturbed areas, pinelands, prairies and lawns. A native to the warmer regions of Asia, it was accidentally imported -in turf-grass seed, it is believed -and was first reported in the state in 1936. Since it is short-lived, it has posed no invasive threat. If it appears in your yard, it might or might not return the following year. Its spontaneous appearance leads scientists to conclude that the plant is selffertilizing. Most people choose to simply enjoy this pretty volunteer. It can be cultivated with seeds gathered from the flowers. Growing anywhere from one-half to 10 inches tall, it has green or bronze grass-like leaves that clasp the stems in a spiral. Spikes of tiny yellow-lipped white or greenish flowers appear in the winter. Each hood-like flower has six unequal petals. The number of dense flowers per spike ranges from only a few to several dozen. Another common name, soldier orchid, derives from the orchids original scientific name. Strateuma means band, company, or army in Greek and refers to the army-like appearance created by clusters of the plant. Sources: Everglades Wildflowers by Roger L. Hammer, National Audubon Society Field Guide to Florida, rufinoosorio.com, wildflowers.jdcc.edu, wildflphoto.com, and plantbook.org.

Matt MitchellOur catch and release summer time snook fishing has been the best I can remember it for years. Anywhere from the bay to the passes and out on the beaches, the snook bite has been simply fantastic. The sheer number of snook of all sizes being caught all through the area is impressive and really a testament to how well the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission three-year closure on the harvest of snook on the west coast of Florida has worked to rebound this fishery. With this closure soon coming to a end on September 1, many anglers are excited by the prospect of being able to keep a snook to eat although many other anglers will still continue to strictly catch and release. One of the things that makes snook such a great gamefish is the many methods that can be used to catch them. Snook feed well on artificial, live and cut baits and can be caught both day and night from anglers fishing from boats and from the shore. Growing up snook fishing on Sanibel, I remember the many times we pulled all night marathons from local bridges and piers. After a few nights you could really dial in the short window on what stage of the tide the big females where going to feed. To this day, some of the largest snook I have ever seen or caught were taken late night while fishing straight up and down the pilings with live ladyfish on heavy tackle from the Sanibel pier and Blind Pass bridge. Some of the best big snook trophy hunters only fish at night. The hottest snook bite for me this week came in and around all the local passes. Drifting live pinfish and grunts on and close to the bottom through the passes caught snook up to 38 inches. Thirty plus snook trips were the norm this week if you were in the right pass on the right stage of the tide. My personal favorite time to get in on the snook action in the passes has been during the lower stages of the tide. Sight fishing along the beaches is another good way to get in on this snook action. During clear water, bright sunny conditions, you can either troll your boat right down the beach or walk the beach and locate these fish right up against the shoreline. Once you find these fish, they can be caught on a variety of tackle and bait. For you fly fisherman, these fish make the perfect target with a small white fly. Small white bucktails and swim baits are the go-to artificals to throw on light spinning tackle. Though the majority of these fish are groups of small males, you never know when you are going to run across a big female. Some of my favorite places to sight fish these snook are along the beaches of Cayo Costa, the north end of Sanibel and down south along Carl E. Johnson State Park. Not only do these beaches offer some of the clearest water around, they also have very little foot traffic and swimmers on the beach to spook the snook. Any gulf beach will hold snook right now though some areas will hold more fish than others. When visability is not that great, fishing the troughs between the sand bars is another option. Even though there are so many snook around, its still imperative that we take care of these great game fish and cause as little stress to them as we can when catching and releasing them. If you are going to fish for snook with live bait, use a circle hook and tackle heavy enough so you can land them in a realatively short amount of time. Also, when landing one, avoid using a landing net if possible. If you want to get a picture with that trophy, wet your hands and fully support the fish by both the head and belly. The less you handle them, the better. Never drag them up on the beach as the sand strips off the protective slime coast of the fish. With our water temperature being so hot, take that little bit of extra time and make sure they are fully revived before watching them swim off to fight another day.Capt.

SS anibel SS ea SS chool Trip To The Bahamassubmitted by JJ enna SS ullivanEver since Sanibel Sea School opened as a non-profit, we have been dreaming of coral reefs and of taking a group of teenagers to study and explore them. This past week, our dream finally came true. And it was even more fun that we could have imagined. Fourteen high school students, accompanied by three Sanibel Sea School staff members, spent the week at Forfar Field Station on Andros Island in the Bahamas, studying coral reefs and becoming confident, capable free divers and reef ecologists. These students ranged from Maddie, a Sanibel Sea School veteran who has been attending and volunteering in our programs since we opened in 2005, to Ondrej from the Czech Republic, who visited us for the first time last fall. The general plan for the week was to spend as much time in the water as possible. One of the best things in life is having the ability to calmly dive down through crystal clear water, check out some colorful coral or reef fish, hang out a while, then float back up, clear your snorkel, and do it again. At the beginning of the week, this type of comfort in the water was a challenge. At the end of the week, it was as easy as breathing above water or under. We swam through coral arches, we checked out a peacock flounder at the very bottom in the sand, we followed a hawksbill sea turtle and dove down to peer under a coral head at a nurse shark we even swam through a little cave in the wall of Rainbow Blue Hole, one of the gorgeous geological formations that helps make Andros Island a world famous diving destination. We visited both oceanic and land-locked blue holes, many of which are actually connected to each other a fact discovered by the famous ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau, who once-upon-a-time actually stayed at the same field station we visited. Along with general ocean exploration and free diving practice, we had an important agenda on this trip. As many people now know, coral reefs are in trouble. To understand how to conserve them and keep them healthy, it is important for scientists to have a good idea of how they have been changing over time. In order to contribute to this effort, we set up acontinued on page 31 We found a common octopus (Octopus vulgaris ) during an invertebrate walk and he suctioned onto our fingers before hiding under a rock Maddie explores a coral wonderland

ISLAND SS UN J ULUL Y 5, 201328 Meet June Koc, The Writer/ DD irector Of Herb SS trauss Theaters Jersey GirlsLongtime Sanibel resident and per forming arts professional June Koc brings the Jersey Shore to the Florida Gulf Shore in the interactive musical, Jersey Girls. Produced and per formed by a troupe of talented community theater members, the fun-filled show will feature popular beachside songs as several groups of girls compete during a 1960s radio show singing competition held on a popular New Jersey boardwalk. The twist? Each night, the audience decides which groups will make it past the first round of the competition as well as who will win the title of Jersey Girls, bringing home the bling with sparkling tiaras. Hosted by the Herb Strauss Theater, 2200 Periwinkle Way on Sanibel, tickets are now on sale (Adults are $15, children 17 and under are $5) at www.BIGARTS.org, at the Herb Strauss Box Office at 472-6862 and at the Marks Box Office at 395-0900. Many area residents may know Jersey Girls co-writer and director June Koc for she, along with her husband, Jack, and daughter, Jaclyn, has been living on Sanibel since 1982. My parents and I have been coming to Sanibel since I was 5 years old, she noted. I knew I loved it the first time I came. Originally trained by the Ballet Russe Academy in Ridgewood, New Jersey starting at the age of 7, Koc began dancing with American Ballet Theater when she was 9 years old. Performing all around New York City, Koc fondly recalls, I was fortunate to be in classes with Baryshnikov and Kelsey Kirkland during their hay days. It was while she was auditioning in New York City that Koc discovered a love for modern dance and jazz, studying with Frank Wagner, Luigi and Paul Sanasardo in Manhattan. After relocating to Sanibel, Koc said she wasnt even here a week when she saw a Pirate Playhouse advertisement seeking actresses and stage managers. It was dur ing those early days in Southwest Florida that Koc first became involved with Lee County theater productions, a relationship that continues to this day. In addition to becoming one of the Off Beach Players, Koc and her two partners began producing community theater at the old Schoolhouse Theater, which eventually became the Herb Strauss Theater, as well as produced shows at the Second Street Theater in Fort Myers, Alliance of the Arts and Cultural Park Theater in Cape Coral. Koc has also produced childrens theater programs BIG ARTS Schein Performance Hall. Explaining how she finds the time to devote to community theater, Koc exclaimed, I love everything about theater. I have directed at least six shows in the last two years and performed in three other shows. My favorite show is always the show Im doing! Awarded the Cape Coral 2013 Marquee Award for Musical Director of the Year for Man of La Mancha, Koc acknowledged, It was quite an honor but my success is always due to my talented and dedicated cast. Kocs latest production, Jersey Girls, came about because her husband, Jack, adores the 1960s era of music. With her husband as the historian, Koc and Nancy Fueyo channeled their mutual love for Seaside Heights into developing a musical about the popular Jersey Shore boardwalk and the talent that performed there dur ing that era. A heart-warming story of about 1960s girl groups launched their careers by performing on the boardwalk, Jersey Girls features a talented cast who are putting their heart and souls into their acts... just like the original Jersey Girls did. Jersey Girls will be performed at the Herb Strauss Theater on Thursday, July 11, Friday, June 12, Saturday, July 13, Wednesday, July 17, Thursday, July 18, Friday, July 19 and Saturday, July 20. All shows are at 8 p.m. and tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for children 17 and under. Tickets are available on www. BIGARTS.org or by calling the Herb Strauss Box Office at 472-6862 or the Marks Box Office at 395-0900. The Community Players welcome volunteers to work on all aspects of production both on stage and behind-the-scenes. The Players provide local live theater, performed for the community, by the community. For more information about volunteering, call the office at 395-0900 or email info@BIGARTS.org.

You had to be captivated, hockey fan or not, by the unforgettable Stanley Cup Finals between the Boston Bruins and the Chicago Blackhawks. Although the Blackhawks took home their second Cup in the last four seasons, the series left little doubt that these two teams are the best in the National Hockey League. And it was fitting that these two original NHL franchises battled for hockeys supreme prize. As Sports Illustrated reported, there was never more than a two-goal lead in any of the six games. And the compelling finals had three overtime games in the first four, including an exhausting three overtime heart-thumper in Game One. It was a class act by the Blackhawks to publish a full-page ad in Boston papers last weekend thanking Boston for the courtesy and sportsmanship shown the Blackhawks during the series. Second was the disturbing news of the arrest on murder charges against former New England Patriots star tight end Aaron Hernandez. He and two others are implicated in the murder of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd. What is particularly disturbing is the fact that the multi-talented 23-year-old Hernandez, who just last year had been awarded a seven-year $41.1 million contract extension by the Patriots, had been considered by many a class act. The Patriots immediately dropped Hernandez from the team and reportedly are taking steps to void his contract. The third Boston story of the week was the departure of Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers, who left after nine seasons to take the helm of the Los Angeles Clippers. His nine successful years with the Celtics included an NBA title in 2008. Rivers had a year remaining on his contract and the Celtics will receive a first-round NBA draft choice in 2015 from the Clippers in compensation. And finally, as the 2013 Major League Baseball season reaches the half-way point, is the surprising, perhaps even amazing fact that Boston Red Sox remain atop the American League Eastern Division. From last to first is the banner of the 2013 Red Sox, who started the week with a 49-34 record, best in the American League, and a 2-1/2 game lead over Baltimore in the AL East. Red Sox fans are gleeful not only for their first-place standing but over their freefalling, bitter rival New York Yankees, who had lost four in a row and slipped 5-1/2 games behind Boston. So it was a week of the good and the bad for sports-loving Boston fans. Tough Going For Miracle In Seasons Second-Half With so many of the Fort Myers Miracle top players promoted to Double-A New Britain after clinching the seasons first-half Florida State League South Division Championship, it comes as no surprise that the second-half of the season is much more difficult. The Miracle began the week with a second-half 4-5 record, having dropped four in a row earlier in the week to Palm Beach and Jupiter before a 12-2 win last Saturday over St. Lucie. Fort Myers only home appearance this weekend is a 7:05 p.m. Friday again against Bradenton with a big post July 4th fireworks show after the game.

31 ISLAND SS UN JULY 5, 2013 From page 22 SS chool Tripstudy site at a coral area called Daves Patch Reef. Using simple but elegant research techniques, we surveyed the fish, invertebrates, corals, algae, coral diseases and surrounding sea grass at our study site. We kept detailed records of our findings, and these data are the first in what will become a long-term database of coral health at Daves Patch Reef monitored by Sanibel Sea School students annually. We exercised our scientific and creative talents by completing either an individual art project or a small group research project throughout the week. The presentations at the end of the week were very interesting and showed what an impressive group of teens we had. One group made a to-scale map of nocturnal crab activity all over the field station by following their tracks in the sand; Cameron made a beautiful watercolor of a parrotfish, a colorful and important reef fish that munches on coral and poops out sand; another group explored the success of natural versus man-made materials as artificial reefs. Outside of this assignment, one teenager, Dara, learned to weave a traditional Bahamian palm-frond basket from one of the island elders who lived down the street. Please check out our blog at sanibelseaschool.org/blog for some first-hand accounts from our students and visit our website for more pictures of our excellent adventure.

And while perfection is not their ultimate goal, the dedicated crews of the Sanibel Fire & Rescue District (SFRD) hope that their simulations staged at their Fire Station #1 four-story training tower will prepare them for any emergency they may encounter here on the islands. Last week, training officer Tim Barrett put all three working shifts through the paces of a staged simulation: a search-and-rescue operation in which the SFRD would encounter arriving at one of the islands condominium units where their ladder trucks cannot pull close-up to the structure. This is what we call one of our bread-and-butter drills, said Barrett, who informed the six-members on duty last Wednesday morning what responsibilities they would have during the simulation. Its a basic drill were gonna unload the hose and the equipment when we arrive on scene were gonna establish communications the victims in this structure are on the third floor. Barrett and firefighter/paramedic Bill Briscoe oversaw the drill, which included fellow firefighters Kevin Barbot, Carl Johansson, John Reitenbach, Mike Martin and Rob Wilkins. According to Barrett, steel barrels filled with moist hay were set on fire, which quickly filled the training tower with smoke. Working under hazardous conditions as they would encounter in real situations assists the firefighters in their training sessions. Wilkins and Johansson entered the structure, performed the search-and-rescue for the victims on the third floor, raised a three-inch hose from the ladder truck more than 125 feet away from the building, then extinguished the fire before giving the all clear signal to end the simulation. The group huddled together for a post-drill evaluation, during which Wilkins noted that his radio had either switched off or switched channels at some point. Any good fubar comes down to communication, explained Barrett. The Sanibel Fire & Rescue District performs simulation exer cises regularly, at their training tower as well as at structures on location whenever possible, in order to familiarize themselves with new equipment and to remain sharp and focused with life-saving techniques and procedures.

Ask The ChamberQ: Where can we go to see wildlife/birds/alligators/pelicans/ manatees? A: These are some of the most popular questions asked at the Visitor Center of the Sanibel Captiva Chamber Of Commerce. The staff and volunteers who staff the center are the first people whom visitors meet and they love this question because it give them the chance to talk about their favorite subject the islands of Sanibel and Captiva. This is the aspect of the job that they enjoy most: helping our many visitors up to 1,500 a day in season find the attractions for which Sanibel and Captiva are renowned worldwide. Our natural beauty and the wildlife that makes it home is a top reason for coming here and the chamber staff and volunteers know that they are the ambassadors for this extraordinary and unique resource. They also know that this resource is fragile and has to be carefully cherished; a view shared by all members of the chamber. Island businesses know that our visitors treasure the unspoiled quality of our islands and our unique natural beauty. Think how difficult it would be to recreate this quality in our modern age: par ticularly so on an island adjacent to the waters of the Gulf. Islands such as ours would have huge potential for both active recreation like fishing, boating and sailing and passive sunsoaked holidays by the sea, relaxing on our beaches. it is nothing short of miraculous that the Sanibel founding fathers not only had the vision to see the potential for Sanibel but were able to put together the plan and carry it through that saw that vision become reality. The chamber is proud to play a full part in guarding this resource not only is it vitally important to residents, it is at the heart of our members business proposition. Restaurants, hotels, resorts, small inns and cottages and retailers in variety earn their livelihood because man, in a happy alliance with nature, has turned the dream into the Sanibel that we know today. Chamber members are determined to play an active part in protecting the qualities conceived by their predecessors. We did not create them: we are remarkably fortunate in enjoying them and we accept responsibility for handing them on to future generations. Chamber members do so by actively participating in causes that have as their goal the preservation of the sanctuary quality of Sanibel. A key principle of the Sanibel plan is that Sanibel is and should remain a sanctuary: a sanctuary for wildlife and native vegetation, a sanctuary for natural beauty, a sanctuary for residents seeking tranquility and visitors seeking a unique break from the bustle and stress of urban life. The importance of sanctuary is a belief is shared by residents and businesses alike and is it lies at the center of the chambers mission To promote the prosperity of our members and preserve the quality of life in our community. The interests of residents, businesses and the natural world with which they share Sanibel are inextricably intertwined: the quality of life for human residents is dependent on conserving the natural world. The chamber, therefore, supports the non-profits and the many individuals that do so much to keep the island a haven for nature. Chamber members participate in the many fundraising activities arranged to benefit our natural environment. They work with the city to ensure that the detailed regulations that protect the Sanibel way of life are understood and respected. They also jointly explore ways to reconcile these regulations with changing realities and residents needs: for example the near universal use of smart phones has fundamentally altered the telecommunications infrastructure. Business has a responsibility to ensure that the innovation demanded by consumers in 2013 can live side-by-side with nature without harmful effects to either. Leadership provided by individuals, nonprofits, the city and businesses has shown that we recognize that we are mutually dependent on each other. All can benefit from this recognition. 5B ISL aA ND SS UN JULY 5, 2013 photos by DD ave Meardon Barrier Island Title Services, Inc.

Urban Food Hub Growing With Help Of Local Communityby Jeff LysiakWhat began as an idea only a few short years ago has been cultivated into a viable, growing garden. Located just up the road from Fleamasters Flea Market in Fort Myers, the Roots Heritage Urban Food Hub founded in 2010 by Sanibel resident Yvonne Hill was created in order to provide the community with locally-grown fresh produce, owned and operated by members of the community itself. According to Hill, the first garden was planted in 2010, and that plot of land began redesign plans six months ago. The Urban Food Hub also received a boost of support when the City of Fort Myers leased them five acres of farm land, located just behind the fresh produce stand, a structure purchased with funds supplied by the Periwinkle Garden Club of Sanibel. The original garden was comprised of about 50 simple wooden boxes. However, the Urban Food Hubs growth has exceeded the capacity those boxes could provide. So with an additional quarter-acre garden area to work with, Hill and her volunteer gardeners are hard at work planting a new crop of seasonal herbs and vegetables including tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, beets, cow Urban Farmers In Training (UFIT) volunteers work at the produce stand, in the garden and on the farm The Roots Heritage Urban Food Hubs farm and produce stand is open seven days a week photos by Jeff Lysiak This frog ornament is the Food Hubs mascot Yvonne Hill, right, founder of the Roots Heritage Urban Food Hub, discusses groundskeep ing plans with volunteer gardener Sharon Franz at the Fort Myers facility 8B IS lL AND SuSU N julJUL Y 5, 2013

There is a great historical significance of agriculture of these crops here in Southwest Florida, said Hill. People can learn about what crops were grown for traditional family recipes, some of the herbs that had medicinal benefits, and then they can buy them and use them at home. The new fenced-in garden area is decorated with brick pavers, rain barrels and antique farm equipment (which have been donated) and will be soon equipped with an outdoor kitchen and grill as well as an Agri-Tourism Learning Lab. The Roots Heritage Urban Food Hubs fresh produce stand is open seven days per week: Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. It is located at 3903 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, two miles east of Fowler Street in Fort Myers. While some of the fruit and vegetables sold there are harvested on site, additional supplies come from other farms in Lee County. People like getting their produce locally, because their fruits and vegetables arent going to lose any of their nutritional value, said Roscoe Jordan, one of the Urban Food Hub volunteers who also collects the honey sold at the stand. When you buy your produce at a big supermar ket, they get their fruit from Mexico and other countries, and by the time you buy it, its not as fresh. Here, its fresh its natural we dont use pesticides. Its healthier for you. Another Urban Food Hub volunteer, Keith Lee, noted that his neighbors prefer buying their produce from him because it helps support the community. They know its gonna be safe for them and its coming from their own community, added Lee. And because we are able to sell it to them for a better rate as well, everybodys happy with that, too. Hill noted that the next Urban Farmers In Training (UFIT) session will begin at the end of July, and that people interested in registering for the program, signing up to volunteer or donating funds or equipment for the facility should call her at 464-9925. Were a 501(c)3 non-profit, and our wish list includes an electric hook-up for our produce stand, a cooler, an irrigation system and a hoop house for shading our crops, said Hill. We would also like to do some work with hydroponics. For additional information, visit the Roots Heritage Urban Food Hub on Facebook.

10B ISLAND SS UN JULY 5, 2013 Superior InteriorsThe Perfect SS potby Cindy MalszyckiIts a common challenge in almost every home. What you ask? Where to put the TV and how to arrange a room full of furniture around this all-important home entertainment unit. And, as with many electronic products today, bigger is definitely better. So where to begin? How do you accommodate the 40-inch plus TV unit? Is it possible to hide or at least minimize these units and the components? Yes, it can be done. All it takes is a little pre-planning and some imagination. Todays beautiful and functional entertainment centers and armoires are specifically designed to close in or minimize televisions and their component equipment. When creating any furniture arrangement plan, its important that you first make a list of the activities and functions that the room will encompass. Its impor tant to think about how this room will ultimately be used. Often, a family room will have an additional problem of having two or more large focal points such as a TV, fireplace and a bar. These rooms can present a special challenge. What is your desired seating capacity? Is traffic flow around your furniture important? Are pets a consideration? What specific types of activities will be enjoyed in this room? Taking stock of exactly how you desire to use your room will ultimately help you work with your professional decorator to implement a plan for maximizing the activity in the room. Its important to take into consider ation the positions of windows and doors; directions of room exposure and traffic patterns before determining locations for various pieces. Naturally, placing your television directly opposite a wall of windows would be less ideal. Exposure to strong sunlight, humidity, extreme heat and even less extreme but frequent changes of temperature may affect various pieces of furniture, limiting possible placement. Furniture arranging is a fun and often challenging experience, just like putting the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle together. Successful furniture arrangement is not a hit and miss matter. Its a skillful process and can be done easily and beautifully when you can take the time to carefully plan your room. Cindy Malszycki is an interior designer on Sanibel/Captiva Islands.

I think your choice demonstrates your good judgment. To Show Confidence: I have confidence in your judgment. Thats a rough one, but Im sure you will work it out. You have handled tough situations before. To Model Problem Solving: I wonder what other choice you have? What else could you do? What are the advantages and disadvantages of that choice? How have you solved similar problems in the past? To Show Empathy and Compassion: This seems hard for you right now. Its good to share what you are going through with me. Im here for you and will try to understand. You are really working hard to make the right choice. To Set Limits and Express Expectations: I have some real ideas about what would work best here. Let me share them. Lets talk about the family rules for this one. Caring about you leads me to these expectations... I trust your judgment and that you will make appropriate decisions and choices.

19B ISLAND SS UN JULY 5, 2013 I write this column from my familys annual summer vacation in Breckenridge, Colorado. Its great to escape Southwest Floridas heat and humidity for a little while, as high temperatures here are in the low 70s. You wake up in the morning to high 30s. And despite news reports to the contrary, the state is not burning down. At least where we are its not. One of the many activities my family enjoys while we are out here is hiking the many nature trails that lead up mountainsides to dazzling waterfalls and alpine lakes. But sometimes finding the trailhead can be a challenge, even with the guidebooks and maps. I travel with a Garmin GPS unit and, for the most part, its very good, except when on these back country dirt roads where most of the trailheads are located. Coming up on a fork in the road, I ask my wife Patti, Should we take the left fork up or the right fork down? How should I know? Patti responds. I decide to go up. Recalculating, Mrs. Garmin exclaims in her soothing GPS voice. I hear my teenage daughters laughter coming from the backseat of our rented SUV. Despite the frustration of taking a wrong turn, I find it amazing when technology can help you correct a driving mistake. Believe it or not, you can gear up your estate plan to recalculate if you make a mistake as well. You can do this by granting someone a power of appointment. Suppose, for example, that your estate plan leaves your assets in a continuing trust that benefits your spouse for the rest of his or her life. You can name your spouse as his or her own trustee so they dont have to turn to a bank or trust company to receive income or assets. At your spouses death your trust then distributes to your children in equal shares. But what happens if one of your children becomes addicted to drugs or alcohol? What if they have made other poor choices that dont warrant an inheritance, or at least control their own share as they normally would? There might also be tax reasons to exercise a power of appointment. What if the distribution to grandchildren in the document would trigger a generation skipping tax that can be avoided? What if there are income tax issues that can be cleaned up? Since you are dead, you cant change the provisions of your will, right? While you cant change your will, you can imbed a power of appointment to your spouse to allow him or her to change it. You can limit the powering in a way such that they cant leave your estate to a new spouse that they remarry, but you can allow them to change how much or in what manner your children eventually receive their inheritance. There is a danger with leaving a power of appointment, however. Your spouse could disinherit one of your intended beneficiaries for almost any reason, including a reason that you may consider frivolous. So when granting a power of appointment, you have to be sure that you explicitly trust that person, and should go so far as to have a conversation with him or her about your expectations. This leads me to another interesting point. If you are a beneficiary of a continuing trust, you may have a power of appointment yourself. Suppose your father left a trust for you that continues on for your lifetime and then terminates on your death to your children. You may want your estate planning attorney to review your fathers trust to determine whether you have a power of appointment to change the ultimate disposition of the assets. You may want your spouse to receive the income from those assets if you predecease him or her before the assets are distributed to your children. You may also find it advantageous for your childrens inheritance to continue on in trust as opposed to an outright distribution that could become subject to the claims of a divorcing spouse or creditors. To exercise the power, you have to include very specific language in your will. A general disposition of everything to my wife is not an exercise of a power. Instead, your will should specifically refer ence the power and then be very specific and direct as to how the assets are to be distributed. Its easy to mess this up and create more problems than you solve, as there are a host of legal and tax issues associated with the identification and exercise of a power of appointment. But its nice to know that you can build in your own recalculation of your estate plan if it should become necessary. Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at www.sbshlaw.com. Will PowerRecalculatingby Craig R.

Dear Mom & Me, Honor thy father and thy mother. It seems to me I hear it every week at church. My mother was living alone in her apartment and she was becoming confused, depressed and lonely. We decide to ask her to come and live with us. I came home from work each noon to prepare her lunch and have a short visit, and then it became just too much. As a family, we realized we just couldnt make all of the lifestyle changes and give mother the care she needed. So, we decided to place her in a retirement complex. She is miserable and so am I. I feel so guilty and ashamed for what I have done and going to church just intensifies my guilt. Can you help me, and do you have any suggestions? Sharon Dear Sharon, Please dont be so hard on yourself. You are honoring your mother you are caring for her. People are now living so much longer and society just has not caught up with all of those needs. Houses are smaller and many families just dont have the room for older family members. You have a family of your own and their needs must be met. Arrange for a meeting with the director of your mothers complex and they may be able to help her adjust to her new living environment. While the adjustment for some individuals and for families is at times difficult, this is wonderful win-win situation. Lizzie Dear Sharon, Aging is just not an individual experience. Aging is a family experience, and your mothers needs are just as impor tant as your needs and everyones needs should be balanced. If it is not possible to give good care at home, then keeping her at home is not the best care. Most associate living provides good medical care and social support. Your mother should be well cared for and care providing less stressful. Any continued on page 22B Got AA Problem? DD r. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: I am going through some grief over the loss of a loved one. I would like some help in explaining the stages of grief to my children.A: Many different kinds of loss can initiate stages of grief. These stages are intertwined, and it is natural to weave in and out of different stages at any moment. I say to many of my grieving clients that grief is a strange thing. One moment we can think that we have it all together, then the next we literally fall apart. People ask me how they can get over the pain of grieving. Truthfully, the only way to get past grief is to go through it. There is no right or wrong way to grieve. You grieve in your own way. One does not get over the losses of a loved one, a beloved pet, a job, a house, a marriage, a missed opportunity, a financial loss. Rather, one heals through the grieving process and moves on. When grief strikes, go through it and realize that it is not the time it takes to grieve, but rather what we do within that time to heal that really matters. Denial is our chief defense. It protects us from pain. If we block the trauma, then we dont have to work through the pain. The long-term consequences can be devastating, since we are not fully living, rather just existing from day to day with no relief from the pain. Once you can come to terms with denial, you will most likely be able to move into the next stage of grief. Remember, grieving is healing, as are the other stages, especially when you are able to move fully through each stage and come to acceptance. For a time, anger is very often a part of the healing process. If we stay stuck in our anger too long, be it anger at our selves, God, or a loved one, we obstruct the healing process. Anger makes our ego feel better, but not the soul. When aligned with the will of the soul, we want to open up again to living fully and wholly. When we support our ego, by expressing anger, we prevent ourselves from feeling true peace. Anger masks the real hurt that lies beneath the grief. Again, staying in anger too long can consume and immobilize you, which prevents you from healing the deep wounds at your core. To work on letting go of your anger, journal about your anger. Then make a ritual of releasing or getting rid of your anger. You can bury what you journaled, or burn it. Tear the pages into pieces and flush them down the toilet. Pack them in a hot air balloon. Put them in a bottle and throw them out to sea, or throw them off a mountain top. Depression is a familiar place we go when we experience a loss. It is sad to lose someone or something we cherish and missed opportunities can engender regret. I remember hearing continued on page 22B

It works, but is there something else to manage this or the pain and itch? Me and my kids get bit frequently and I dont like the idea of taking a bath in chemical creams. KK, Tulsa, OklahomaI have other bath ideas to share with you. What you do for a bug bite depends on the type of critter. For example, bites from bees, wasps, yellow jackets and fire ants are the most common. Unless youre highly allergic, these bites can be treated at home. Bites from scorpions and certain spiders often require medical attention. Bites from ticks (if youre lucky enough to see it, because you wont feel it) should be treated with prescribed antibiotics for at least 4 weeks. Let me keep it simple today. Pharmacists like hydrocortisone cream because it works quickly, controls the itch, pain, swelling and redness. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) cream may help in this regard too. Lidocaine or numbing sprays provide yet another option to minimize pain. Here are other potential solutions: Ice pack The cold takes down swelling and pain. Baking soda Right after you get bit, make a paste using baking soda and water, add in meat tenderizer if you have it. Reapply every 15 minutes for about an hour. It helps with pain, itch and redness. The meat tenderizer neutralizes venom injected into you by the bug. Ibuprofen or acetaminophen Overthe-counter medications that temporarily control pain. Oral antihistamines Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is often used to control fullbody itching. Dont say I didnt warn you (yawn), this stuff can knock you out. No driving! Toothpaste Fluoride in toothpaste seems to calm the sting. Essential oils Lavender oil is soothing and acts as a natural anti-inflammatory and anti-venom aid. Peppermint oil and lavender both reduce risk of infection. Tea Tree oil may disinfect the area. These oils may sting if you apply undiluted. For some, a 50/50 mix with a carrier oil such as olive or coconut might be better. You can put essential oils in your bath. Speaking of baths... Peroxide and Epsom salts Dump the whole 4-pound pack of Epsom salts in warm (not hot) water, along with a pint (or two) of hydrogen peroxide. This home remedy has anecdotal evidence; its a very strong detoxifying bath and might cause an unpleasant Herxheimer reaction the first few times, so get your doctors blessings. Its not right for everyone. Aveeno Oatmeal This is 100 percent colloidal oatmeal helps to control itching; pour the flakes under the faucet of your bath and soak in it. Think thats weird? Its not compared to what I say next. Preparation H Hemorrhoidal CreamIt contains pramoxine which controls pain. Chiggerex Chiggers are immature mites and not easily seen. Their itch is diabolical, compared to their microscopic size. Chiggerex is sold at pharmacies and brings quick relief. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

Eden Energy Medicine AA ctivate AA ll NN ine Energy SS ystems In 5 Minutes, Part 1by Karen LL SS emmelman, Certified EEM, JDJD AAAA M LL You are no doubt asking whats with these 5 minutes again? The answer is simple; you have learned the 5 Minute Routine over the last several months and realize the benefits of each exercise individually. However, it is imperative to emphasize that by daily completing the 5 Minute Routine, you are activating each of the nine energetic systems that form the basis of Eden Energy Medicine (EEM). None of these systems stand alone, but are integrally connected providing invaluable support to your health and well-being. This interconnectedness is what enables a person to reduce pain, feel invigorated, find balance, diminish achy joints and enhance well-being. Thus, the next two columns will briefly introduce the nine systems and define each. As the months go by, more infor mation will be provided about each. Meridians Defined energetic pathways serving as the bodys bloodstream. The 14 meridians are each associated with a named organ. Access to the ener gy of organs is provided on the surface of the skin as well as deep channels feeding energy to organs, muscles and cells. Chakras Located from the pelvic floor to the top of the head, these seven swirling balls of energy bathe and fuel the organs within close proximity. Governing the endocrine system, they encode and process physical, emotional, spiritual and mental experiences. Each has seven layers, existing deep in our bodies and reaching out to touch our auric field. Aura Like the chakras, there are seven layers to our aura, the first very close to the body and the others reaching out into the world. These layers act as antenna pulling into our systems beneficial energy that we need to exist, while at the same time protecting and filtering toxic and disruptive energies from the environment. While enveloping the body, the aura processes nutrients like sunlight for your well-being and integrates the magnetic field of the Earth to your own energy Radiant Circuits Believed to be the precursor to meridians, they have circuits which can be activated to create the joy juice of being, thus creating positive feelings. These subtle energies support all other systems, moving instantly to where they may be needed for healing within the body or in the field. I think of them as twinkly little stars that sprinkle joy wher ever they are called to assist.continued on page 23B ISLAND PHARMACY(Voted Best Pharmacy on The Island 6 years) CARING FOR YOU AND ABOUT YOU 2330 Palm Ridge Rd. #12, Sanibel From page 21B DD r. ConnieChristopher Reeve give a talk about five months before his passing. He said that he allowed himself to be depressed for 10 minutes each day, then he went about his day. That was all, 10 minutes. Depression occurs along with the grief process. It passes. You weave in and out. If the depression lasts longer than a month, it is best to talk with your health care professional for information to help guide you through this difficult time. Talking with your doctor is the first important step in deciding the most appropriate treatment plan. People who suffer with long-term chronic depression are at risk for heart disease and poor physical health. When you are in the throws of depression, it seems at times there is no way out. Know that there is and remember that it takes time to heal. When you are experiencing depression, you may lose your passion for living. Your symptoms may include a sense of helplessness or hopelessness, sleep distur bance, change in appetite, lack of inter est in things that were once pleasurable, and a change in mood. People with a diagnosis of severe depression may have to be on an anti-depressant medication for a period of time. Medication can be prescribed by a medical doctor or nurse practitioner with experience in treating depression. Along with medical care, the assistance of a psychotherapist or psychologist can be most beneficial. The rate of depression is on the rise from the number of women now trying to do it all, thinking they need anti-depressants to get through the day. For these women, it is easier to take a pill than to go to a therapist and seek assistance to make the necessary changes to overcome their depression. These women should be aware of the root cause of the problem that led to the depression, then make changes to resolve it rather than medicate it. Acceptance is a place we reach when we have truly worked through the other grief stages and we are ready to move on. In acceptance, we start to become aware of new opportunities, which may lead to new beginnings. SS hare your community news with us. Call 395-1213, Fax: 395-2299or email press@islandsunnews.com

23B ISLAND SS UN JULY 5, 2013 Dr. DaveWax On, Wax Offby DD r. DD ave HepburnWhaaaat did he say, Mildred?? HE SAID YOURE DEAF, YOU OLD FOOL. Im dead??? NO BERT... NOT YET. I finally interrupt this romantic inter lude. Mrs. Bloggins, your husbands ears are jammed with wax. I got jam on my slacks??? yells Bert. Warning: If reading about bodily fluids makes you at all queasy or if the phrase bodily fluids itself induces violent waves of nausea, perhaps this column is best not read at the dinner table. In fact, it is foolish to ever read medical columns in the vicinity of tomato soup, cauliflower, refried beans or sushi. Today, EAR WAX... (retch). Ear wax, medically referred to as cerumen, has been tenderly cultured in your ear canal by mother nature for a reason... so leave it alone! (For those of you hard of hearing... SO LEAVE IT ALONE!) It is not bad stuff. It is good stuff. Cerumen is made by special glands called plugger-uppers that live on the outer third of your ear canal. It has three purposes to its sluggish existence. First, it protects the very sensitive skin of your ear canal from water and infections. Secondly, it protects your ear drum from dirt and grit by trapping it before it gets to the drum. And finally, cerumen gets great glee out of driving normally intelligent people to distraction as they attempt to rotorooter it out with everything ranging from Q-tips to cue sticks. If wax is so good for us, why do we try so hard to get it out? Perhaps it is a teleological thing that began when mother Eve licked the corner of her fig leaf and washed Abels chin and then ram-rodded it down Cains canal to get out the wax, put there no doubt by the serpent. Or, perhaps, it is because we have this innate desire to scrape off anything that isnt nailed to our carcass. Unfortunately, the practice of ramming bobby pins, fingernails or darning needles into our ears is highly detrimental. Not only does it denude the ear of the protective cerumen and introduce micro cracks into the skin of the canal itself (which, in turn, gets infected), but it also jams the wax up against a very flimsy drum. What follows is itchiness, infection, swelling and pain in the canal that makes you rush down to the doctor with what is actually called Q-tip ear. NEVER STICK ANYTHING SMALLER THAN YOUR ELBOW IN YOUR EAR! Warning: It seems that wherever there is an orifice in the human body, there are practitioners willing to cleanse or irrigate it. The ear canal, unfortunately, is not immune. Ear candling is one of those ancient Druid practices invented by Charla Tan whereby the victim actually has hollow wax candles stuck in each ear... and then lit! The practitioner then dashes out of the room collapsing in spasms of laughter, sobered only by the fact that he has just made another $50. A vacuum is created wherein some ear wax along with significant amounts of cerebral grey matter are sucked into the hollow tube. While some folks generate a meagre amount of wax, others make enough to plug up the entire canal... in Panama. In some cases, the natural process of wax removal does not work well and the ear jams up. Avoid Q-tips. But before going to the doctor, please: a. apply a few drops of olive or mineral oil to the ear canal for three days, or b. mix baking soda with a couple of ounces of water and dump that in there three times a day for a couple of days. Then, c. see the doctor who will (retch... gag) gently flush your ear. Using a 300,000 psi powerwasher, the water is fired into your ear, whereby it strikes your drum and returns with the hated wax. Unless, of course, you happen to follow the sayings of Snooki, in which case it comes flying out the other ear. And then theres ol Bert, who winks at me as he glances at a haranguing Mildred and whispers Doc, just leave it in there. Listen live or call in to Dr Dave on his fun yet informative radio show, Wisequacks, heard each Sunday at 5 p.m. at www.cknw.com. Contact Dr. Dave or read more at www.wisequacks.org. From page 22BEnergy SS ystemsTriple Warmer Serves in dual roles: as a meridian and as a Radiant Circuit. It is the warrior of our body, governing the immune system; our fight/flight/freeze response; and our survival mechanism. Acting as a meridian, we may access its energy through its defined pathway just like the other meridians. As a Radiant Circuit, TW is very powerful, taking energy from all other meridians (except heart) if their energy is necessary to maintain the bodys habits. Frequently these habits arent healthy, i.e. a person has cancer or heart disease and operates in a physically improper way; which necessitates activating the persons habit fields to shift them from the harmful automatic response that has developed. Next week, we will review the remaining four energetic systems. Have fun with your energy! Next weeks topic is Activate All Nine Energy Systems, Part 2. If you have any questions for Karen, email her at ksemmelmanenergy@ gmail.com. Learn more at www.semmelmanenergy.com. EEM does not diagnose or cure illness, but working with subtle energies of the body has been shown to help many conditions. Presented by: Michael B. Hill Craig R.

Since aboveaverage is looking more and more like average, its a good time to look at two programs that can help you and your community be more prepared for what could be heading your way. Be Storm Smart Are you from Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Delaware, Rhode Island, Massachusetts or New Hampshire? Do we have a website for you http://stormsmartcoasts.org/. StormSmart Coasts is a resource for coastal decision makers looking for the latest and best information on how to protect their communities from weather and climate hazards. Jealous at being left out? Maine, New Jersey and Connecticut are coming soon. In addition for being a resource for coastal decision makers, it is a great resource for coastal residents as well. Each member state has its own site. These include information on what to do before the storm (planning), during the storm (emergency contacts), after the storm (safe and smart recovery) and funding. Each of these pages include related pages; for example, the planning page includes a link to Quick and Easy Way to Create a Storm Surge Map. There is no membership fee but, for more active participation, membership is required. It is purely a matter of providing basic information and determining a password. Members can then be part of public, private or hidden groups. Right now, they have 99 groups ranging from those discussing the Community Rating System (CRS) and flood insurance to coastal resiliency to numerous state groups. It is an opportunity to interact with people with similar interests. This connection also allows people to find peers and to connect with them. Within the groups, members can share files. They are also active on Twitter and Facebook. Twitter posts and other RSS feeds are included on the website. The website also includes a national blog which for the most part summarizes federal documents, which can be helpful to communities. Be Storm Ready The National Weather Service (NWS) has a nationwide program that focuses on community preparedness for all kinds of weather disasters, certainly valuable since few of us are lucky enough to have just one form of cautionary catastrophe. And, while this is a community effort, its beneficial to individuals engaged in the preparations as well as those wholl benefit from the rigors of readiness. To win a Storm Ready designation for your community, it must meet certain criteria (based on population) that NWS sets forth, which include: gency operations center. weather warnings. weather conditions. through community meetings. plan, including training weather spotters and holding emergency exercises. More details are available online at www.stormready.noaa.gov and, if your community is at risk from any kind of severe weather, its worth a look. We regularly remind people how valuable wide, healthy beaches and high dune systems are to keep severe storm damage at bay. But storm readiness is much more than just having your coastline ready its a community-wide effort on myriad fronts. These two storm-planning efforts could help your community be better able to survive the next bout with bad weather whatever its nature.

Last Thursday afternoon, officials announced the three areas where they plan to conduct these controlled burns: on the Bailey Tract, at Legion Curve and along a stretch of Sanibel-Captiva Road. During last weeks public information session, which was co-hosted by Deputy Refuge Manager Joyce Palmer and Supervisory Refuge Ranger Toni Westland, officials also announced that the target start date for the prescribed burns is Monday, July 8. Because weather can influence whether or not a prescribed burn will take place including factors such as temperature, wind, humidity and precipitation the scheduled start date for the burn may be pushed back a day or two, or even a week, depending upon forecast conditions. According to refuge officials, carefully planning and conducting managed burns can prevent the likelihood of catastrophic wildfires and help preserve the natural ecology of the area. This technique called a prescribed burn will reduce the amount of dried vegetation or overgrowth, known as fuel. Prescribed burns are planned and carefully conducted by well-trained and experienced wildland firefighters operating under strict conditions, known as prescriptions. According to Jeremy Conrad, wildlife biologist at the refuge, conducting prescribed burns at dedicated areas of the island where there is evidence of dead trees and over growth actually minimizes the threat of a catastrophic wildfire while maintaining public safety. A secondary benefit of the burn is to wildlife, which will improve the habitat of several native species. These include the gopher tortoise, the eastern indigo snake and the Sanibel rice rat. Smoke is another concern, therefore, plans call for specific wind conditions to minimize smoke impacts to roads and communities. A prescribed fire will not be conducted if the prescription cannot be met, i.e. if the proper wind conditions and relative humidity are not present on the day of the planned burn, the burn will not be conducted. During the summer of 2012, officials burned 355 acres at the biological site. This years three individual sites collectively total 335 acres: Last burned on February 18, 2009, the Bailey Tract includes eight components totaling 100 acres Called a type 1, high complexity burn, the Legion Curve area was last burned in June 2004IS lL AND SS UN JU lL Y 5, 20136

Richard (Dick) is survived by sisters Alice (Cook) Cherico, Marian (Cook) Lloyd, brother Donald Cook, sons Geoffrey Cook, Patrick Cook, daughters Sarah Cook, Catherine (Cook) Giacomo, first wife Marjorie Cook, and eight ador ing grandchildren Emily, Andrew, Isabella, Daniel, Erin, Mia, Joe and Bobby. Dick leaves behind legions of friends in his dual hometowns of Sanibel and Washington, DC. Dick graduated from White Plains High School in 1949. He enlisted in the United States Air Force in 1950, served in Korea and Japan, and was honorably discharged in 1954. Dick graduated from The George Washington University in 1959 with a BA in international studies. Dicks Washington career began in 1959 with the American Trucking Association as a lobbyist. This was followed by Congressional posts with U.S. Representative Edwin Dooley (R, NY), Legislative Assistant Oliver Bolton (R, OH), and a staff position with House Committee on Banking and Currency. In 1969, Dick accepted an assignment in the White House as a special assistant to President Richard Nixon. One year later, Dick became deputy assistant to the president. From 1973 to 1995, Dick was a vice president and subsequently senior vice president with the Lockheed Aircraft Corporation, overseeing Lockheeds Washington office.

Dicks numerous professional accomplishments include the following highlights: distinguished service during the Korean War; development of the House Banking Committees first computerized scheduling calendar system (Thomas), still used in various formats on the Hill today; leadership role on President Nixons legislative agenda team that passed groundbreaking bi-partisan legislation from 1969 to 1972, including the passing of the presidents landmark comprehensive health plan; contribution to and engagement with Lockheeds Skunk Works program for 20 years; maintenance of the C-130 military transport defense program, initially earmarked for cancellation in 1976; Washington lead for the development of the F-117 Stealth Fighter and F-22 Raptor programs; international consultant with the South African Football Association that resulted in the naming of South Africa as the host to the 2010 FIFA World Cup; launch of RKC Ltd., an independent consulting firm with expertise in online lobbying and targeted website strategy; lastly, a lifelong love of learning and a boundless pursuit of knowledge. Dick was a proud and enthusiastic past member of the Metropolitan Club (Washington, DC) and Burning Tree Golf Club (Maryland).

9 ISLAND SS UN J ULUL Y 5, 2013 NN o Child LL eft On SS hore ProgramThe Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) and Captiva Cruises conducted a water borne experience for kids from Brightest Horizons Child Development Center through the No Child Left On Shore Environmental Education Outreach Project last week. Many of the children were out on the water for the first time. Observing dolphins in their natural habitat, collecting shells, making sandcastles, having fun in the water and letting their joy and wonder explode makes these opportunities an invaluable experience. The No Child Left On Shore initiative is a cooperative endeavor of SCCF and Captiva Cruises, who see a real need to provide the younger generation of Southwest Florida with an opportunity to experience first hand the invaluable resources of the Caloosahatchee Watershed and estuarine environment. Cuts in public funding for school environmental education field trips have drastically reduced the number of students who can experience for themselves the impor tance of our coastal resources. Many families within Southwest Florida especially those with language, cultural, physical and economic barriers do not have the means to get out on the water. Too much of our local population who live close to the Back Bay Estuary have never held a live sea star, shrimp or snail. They have never waded in shallow sea grass beds and observed a horseshoe or spider crab, and have never learned by taking part in hands on outdoor activities. It is this segment of our Southwest Florida community that SCCF and Captiva Cruises is reaching out to and would like to engage by providing them with the opportunity to take part in water borne experiential field trips.

Biologists found an approximately 1-month-old female kitten Saturday in the Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park in southwest Florida, near where they released the young adult panther on January 31. We were very excited to find this panthers kitten, said Dave Onorato, FWC panther biologist. The fact that this panther has given birth is positive news for the recovery of this endangered species and a testament to the hard work of all involved in its rescue and rehabilitation. Biologists estimate the female panther became pregnant about three weeks after her release, when she was only 21 months old. That age is somewhat younger than the typical age of first conception for female panthers the FWC has documented. While biologists are encouraged the female became a contributor to the population so quickly, it was not completely unexpected, given that her home range is within prime panther habitat. After discovering the kitten over the weekend, biologists evaluated its health and tagged it for identification purposes to document whether it eventually becomes part of the adult population. An estimated 100 to 160 adult and subadult panthers remain in south Florida. Kitten survival rates are pretty low, but this kitten looked healthy and feisty, said Onorato. The kitten has a chance of one day contributing to the population as well. The FWC rescued the now young adult panther and its brother as 5-month-old kittens in September 2011 after their mother was found dead. They were then raised at the White Oak Conservation Center in Yulee until they were ready for release. The FWC released the male panther in April at the Rotenberger Wildlife Management Area in south Florida. Florida residents can support panther conservation efforts through the purchase of a Protect the Panther license plate. Fees from license plate sales are the primary funding source for the FWCs research and management of Florida panthers. The success story of this once orphaned panther giving birth in the wild following its rescue and rehabilitation would not be possible without license plate funds, said Carol Knox, FWCs Imperiled Species Section Leader. To report dead or injured panthers, call the FWCs Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888404-FWCC (3922), #FWC or *FWC on a cell phone, or text Tip@MyFWC.com.

During breeding season, adults nest in the woody shrubs of coastal and inland wetlands throughout the Caribbean and the Americas (North, Central and South), at which time they display prominent plumes on their shoulders, necks and heads. While the snowy egret is native to the Sunshine State, populations are becoming less common in northern Florida dur ing winter months. These lovely birds, however, are often seen standing on the grass next to Sanibels roads impatiently waiting for traffic to stop long enough for them to cross. An emaciated snowy egret was admitted to CROW last month, too weak to fly. Due to its grave condition, its hospital stay began inside the wildlife clinics Intensive Care Unit. Captivity was par ticularly stressful for the patient, prompting Dr. Heather Barron to move it outside to one of the small flight cages. Soon thereafter, it began receiving its treatments outside, including physical exams and medications. As Dr. Heather noted, Since he is outside now, I was hoping he would catch lizards by himself and be more comfortable than he was inside. He is really enjoying walking. Despite the transfer, the egret steadfastly refused to eat on its own. Left without an alternative, Dr. Heather ordered that it be force-fed three times per day and that its weight be carefully monitored. The staff of DVMs and students are working diligently to save the life of patient #1412 in the hopes that it will regain its strength and health so that it can be released back into the wild. While monetary donations are invaluable, it is the volunteers that have made CROW successful for more than four decades. They collectively donate thousands of hours each year performing necessary tasks that allow the doctors and veterinarian interns (who often work more than 12 hours per day) to care for the tens-of-thousands of sick, injured and orphaned patients that have been treated at CROW. If you are interested in grazing tor toises, feeding exotic birds and mammals, or helping to keep CROWs 12.5 acres of grounds tidy, contact volunteer services at volunteers@crowclinic.org or call 4723644 ext. 229.

Part IIby Mark Bird WestallSo, how do we find out if there is a problem with our nesting wading birds on Sanibel? Back in 1981, I started The International Osprey Foundation (TIOF) because ospreys like many high-order predators at the time were in trouble in this country. People concerned about the species chances for survival on the island had already initiated putting up artificial nesting platforms for the birds before I got here, and as I became more involved with the program, I decided it would be a good idea to create the foundation and establish a monitoring program to check on osprey productivity. And, obviously, that program was a smashing success! I now think that something similar to that could be done for the islands nesting wading birds. I am not talking about a big organization like TIOF that needs a board of directors and all the hassles that come with that approach. Our nesting wading birds could be initially monitored with just a little local interest and the help of social media. Locals could make simple observations and tallies and report their findings to a central location. Once the data was collected for a while, professionals could look at the information gathered and determine if more steps should be taken. I am willing to act as the focal point for collecting this basic data so we can have a better understanding of just how well our nesting wading birds are doing and if the current alligator policies on the island are affecting non-target species. People on the island spend hours upon hours driving through the Wildlife Drive looking for interesting bird sightings and making observations. Seems to me that some of that interest could be directed towards identifying what species of wading birds are nesting on the island, estimating their numbers, establishing when and where they are nesting, tabulating (from a distance) an estimate of young produced during nesting season, and whether or not alligators are present near the nests and the approximate size of any gator spotted in the nesting area. So, do me a favor! I bet that everyone knows someone that lives in a neighborhood where there are nesting birds nearby, like the Periwinkle Trailer Park, Murex Lakes or Sanibel Bayous. Some of you may have birds nesting where you can watch them from your backyards. Let those folks know what I want to do and tell them to get in touch with me. It would only take an email. Most, if not all, of the nest sites documented will be in freshwater habitats; either along the Sanibel River or on development ponds. Lets begin this summer to put together a base line of where our wading birds have historically been spotted nesting on the island. Then, next nesting season, we can begin to collect productivity data. As a word of caution, at this time, I do not want people travelling up and down the remote parts of the Sanibel River searching for signs of nesting birds. My work along the river will give me all the data I need from that area. And the two rookeries in mangroves on the island (the little islands in the middle of Tarpon Bay and at the end of Wildlife Drive) have no need to be identified because the refuge is already collecting data from those places. And anyway, once they put in the new water control structure at the Alligator Curve, I predict the yellow-crowns will stop nesting there because the channel below the nests will become saline; the alligators will move somewhere else; and then the birds will abandon the site. The species that I am interested in collecting data on are all the wading birds (herons and egrets, ibises and the night herons), plus anhingas. I am not as interested in green herons and great blue herons because they seem to use different strategies for protecting nests. So, if you are reading this article and have seen a wading bird nest, let me know where the nest is and what species is using it. If there are several nests, just send me the approximate number. And, of course, whether or not you have seen any alligators in the water around the nest(s) and how big it is (remember the old size estimation trick; for every inch measured from the eyes to the nostril, that is how long the gator is in feet). You can get my email address from my website listed at the end of this article. I also want to stress, once again, that no disturbance should be placed upon the birds in order for anyone to collect the information I have asked for. Make your observations from a safe distance. If the birds are nesting in your backyard, you probably already know how close is too close. Use good judgment! Remember, you are the scariest of predators to them and they will believe that anything you do to get a closer look is only so you can kill them! Dont make them feel like they should leave and abandon their nesting area. If you guys help me collect this information, it will help me understand whether or not big alligators are impor tant to the ecological health of this island. Is Sanibel still the kind of community that is interested in this type of project? I hope so.

19 ISLAND SS UN J ULUL Y 5, 2013 Plant Smart LL awn Orchidby Gerri ReavesLawn orchid (Zeuxine strateumatica) is a terrestrial orchid that has become naturalized self-sustaining without cultivation and crops up in Floridas disturbed areas, pinelands, prairies and lawns. A native to the warmer regions of Asia, it was accidentally imported -in turf-grass seed, it is believed -and was first reported in the state in 1936. Since it is short-lived, it has posed no invasive threat. If it appears in your yard, it might or might not return the following year. Its spontaneous appearance leads scientists to conclude that the plant is selffertilizing. Most people choose to simply enjoy this pretty volunteer. It can be cultivated with seeds gathered from the flowers. Growing anywhere from one-half to 10 inches tall, it has green or bronze grass-like leaves that clasp the stems in a spiral. Spikes of tiny yellow-lipped white or greenish flowers appear in the winter. Each hood-like flower has six unequal petals. The number of dense flowers per spike ranges from only a few to several dozen. Another common name, soldier orchid, derives from the orchids original scientific name. Strateuma means band, company, or army in Greek and refers to the army-like appearance created by clusters of the plant. Sources: Everglades Wildflowers by Roger L.

Matt MitchellOur catch and release summer time snook fishing has been the best I can remember it for years. Anywhere from the bay to the passes and out on the beaches, the snook bite has been simply fantastic. The sheer number of snook of all sizes being caught all through the area is impressive and really a testament to how well the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission three-year closure on the harvest of snook on the west coast of Florida has worked to rebound this fishery. With this closure soon coming to a end on September 1, many anglers are excited by the prospect of being able to keep a snook to eat although many other anglers will still continue to strictly catch and release. One of the things that makes snook such a great gamefish is the many methods that can be used to catch them. Snook feed well on artificial, live and cut baits and can be caught both day and night from anglers fishing from boats and from the shore. Growing up snook fishing on Sanibel, I remember the many times we pulled all night marathons from local bridges and piers. After a few nights you could really dial in the short window on what stage of the tide the big females where going to feed. To this day, some of the largest snook I have ever seen or caught were taken late night while fishing straight up and down the pilings with live ladyfish on heavy tackle from the Sanibel pier and Blind Pass bridge. Some of the best big snook trophy hunters only fish at night. The hottest snook bite for me this week came in and around all the local passes. Drifting live pinfish and grunts on and close to the bottom through the passes caught snook up to 38 inches. Thirty plus snook trips were the norm this week if you were in the right pass on the right stage of the tide. My personal favorite time to get in on the snook action in the passes has been during the lower stages of the tide. Sight fishing along the beaches is another good way to get in on this snook action. During clear water, bright sunny conditions, you can either troll your boat right down the beach or walk the beach and locate these fish right up against the shoreline. Once you find these fish, they can be caught on a variety of tackle and bait. For you fly fisherman, these fish make the perfect target with a small white fly. Small white bucktails and swim baits are the go-to artificals to throw on light spinning tackle. Though the majority of these fish are groups of small males, you never know when you are going to run across a big female. Some of my favorite places to sight fish these snook are along the beaches of Cayo Costa, the north end of Sanibel and down south along Carl E. Johnson State Park. Not only do these beaches offer some of the clearest water around, they also have very little foot traffic and swimmers on the beach to spook the snook. Any gulf beach will hold snook right now though some areas will hold more fish than others. When visability is not that great, fishing the troughs between the sand bars is another option. Even though there are so many snook around, its still imperative that we take care of these great game fish and cause as little stress to them as we can when catching and releasing them. If you are going to fish for snook with live bait, use a circle hook and tackle heavy enough so you can land them in a realatively short amount of time. Also, when landing one, avoid using a landing net if possible. If you want to get a picture with that trophy, wet your hands and fully support the fish by both the head and belly. The less you handle them, the better. Never drag them up on the beach as the sand strips off the protective slime coast of the fish. With our water temperature being so hot, take that little bit of extra time and make sure they are fully revived before watching them swim off to fight another day.Capt.

SS anibel SS ea SS chool Trip To The Bahamassubmitted by JJ enna SS ullivanEver since Sanibel Sea School opened as a non-profit, we have been dreaming of coral reefs and of taking a group of teenagers to study and explore them. This past week, our dream finally came true. And it was even more fun that we could have imagined. Fourteen high school students, accompanied by three Sanibel Sea School staff members, spent the week at Forfar Field Station on Andros Island in the Bahamas, studying coral reefs and becoming confident, capable free divers and reef ecologists. These students ranged from Maddie, a Sanibel Sea School veteran who has been attending and volunteering in our programs since we opened in 2005, to Ondrej from the Czech Republic, who visited us for the first time last fall. The general plan for the week was to spend as much time in the water as possible. One of the best things in life is having the ability to calmly dive down through crystal clear water, check out some colorful coral or reef fish, hang out a while, then float back up, clear your snorkel, and do it again. At the beginning of the week, this type of comfort in the water was a challenge. At the end of the week, it was as easy as breathing above water or under. We swam through coral arches, we checked out a peacock flounder at the very bottom in the sand, we followed a hawksbill sea turtle and dove down to peer under a coral head at a nurse shark we even swam through a little cave in the wall of Rainbow Blue Hole, one of the gorgeous geological formations that helps make Andros Island a world famous diving destination. We visited both oceanic and land-locked blue holes, many of which are actually connected to each other a fact discovered by the famous ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau, who once-upon-a-time actually stayed at the same field station we visited. Along with general ocean exploration and free diving practice, we had an important agenda on this trip. As many people now know, coral reefs are in trouble. To understand how to conserve them and keep them healthy, it is important for scientists to have a good idea of how they have been changing over time. In order to contribute to this effort, we set up acontinued on page 31 We found a common octopus (Octopus vulgaris ) during an invertebrate walk and he suctioned onto our fingers before hiding under a rock Maddie explores a coral wonderland

ISLAND SS UN J ULUL Y 5, 201328 Meet June Koc, The Writer/ DD irector Of Herb SS trauss Theaters Jersey GirlsLongtime Sanibel resident and per forming arts professional June Koc brings the Jersey Shore to the Florida Gulf Shore in the interactive musical, Jersey Girls. Produced and per formed by a troupe of talented community theater members, the fun-filled show will feature popular beachside songs as several groups of girls compete during a 1960s radio show singing competition held on a popular New Jersey boardwalk. The twist? Each night, the audience decides which groups will make it past the first round of the competition as well as who will win the title of Jersey Girls, bringing home the bling with sparkling tiaras. Hosted by the Herb Strauss Theater, 2200 Periwinkle Way on Sanibel, tickets are now on sale (Adults are $15, children 17 and under are $5) at www.BIGARTS.org, at the Herb Strauss Box Office at 472-6862 and at the Marks Box Office at 395-0900. Many area residents may know Jersey Girls co-writer and director June Koc for she, along with her husband, Jack, and daughter, Jaclyn, has been living on Sanibel since 1982. My parents and I have been coming to Sanibel since I was 5 years old, she noted. I knew I loved it the first time I came. Originally trained by the Ballet Russe Academy in Ridgewood, New Jersey starting at the age of 7, Koc began dancing with American Ballet Theater when she was 9 years old. Performing all around New York City, Koc fondly recalls, I was fortunate to be in classes with Baryshnikov and Kelsey Kirkland during their hay days. It was while she was auditioning in New York City that Koc discovered a love for modern dance and jazz, studying with Frank Wagner, Luigi and Paul Sanasardo in Manhattan. After relocating to Sanibel, Koc said she wasnt even here a week when she saw a Pirate Playhouse advertisement seeking actresses and stage managers. It was dur ing those early days in Southwest Florida that Koc first became involved with Lee County theater productions, a relationship that continues to this day. In addition to becoming one of the Off Beach Players, Koc and her two partners began producing community theater at the old Schoolhouse Theater, which eventually became the Herb Strauss Theater, as well as produced shows at the Second Street Theater in Fort Myers, Alliance of the Arts and Cultural Park Theater in Cape Coral. Koc has also produced childrens theater programs BIG ARTS Schein Performance Hall. Explaining how she finds the time to devote to community theater, Koc exclaimed, I love everything about theater. I have directed at least six shows in the last two years and performed in three other shows. My favorite show is always the show Im doing! Awarded the Cape Coral 2013 Marquee Award for Musical Director of the Year for Man of La Mancha, Koc acknowledged, It was quite an honor but my success is always due to my talented and dedicated cast. Kocs latest production, Jersey Girls, came about because her husband, Jack, adores the 1960s era of music. With her husband as the historian, Koc and Nancy Fueyo channeled their mutual love for Seaside Heights into developing a musical about the popular Jersey Shore boardwalk and the talent that performed there dur ing that era. A heart-warming story of about 1960s girl groups launched their careers by performing on the boardwalk, Jersey Girls features a talented cast who are putting their heart and souls into their acts... just like the original Jersey Girls did. Jersey Girls will be performed at the Herb Strauss Theater on Thursday, July 11, Friday, June 12, Saturday, July 13, Wednesday, July 17, Thursday, July 18, Friday, July 19 and Saturday, July 20. All shows are at 8 p.m. and tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for children 17 and under. Tickets are available on www. BIGARTS.org or by calling the Herb Strauss Box Office at 472-6862 or the Marks Box Office at 395-0900. The Community Players welcome volunteers to work on all aspects of production both on stage and behind-the-scenes.

Youll always find something special at the Over Easy Cafe.Outdoor & Indoor Dining Breakfast & Lunch Scan To Go Online Like us on Heres whats cooking for Breakfast & Lunch If YY ou AA re AA Boston SS ports Fan, It Was AA Week Of The Good AA nd The Badby Ed FrankFor the large multitude of Boston sports fans that populate Southwest Florida, it was a mixed bag of events hockey, football, basketball and baseball that dominated the sports pages this past week. You had to be captivated, hockey fan or not, by the unforgettable Stanley Cup Finals between the Boston Bruins and the Chicago Blackhawks. Although the Blackhawks took home their second Cup in the last four seasons, the series left little doubt that these two teams are the best in the National Hockey League. And it was fitting that these two original NHL franchises battled for hockeys supreme prize. As Sports Illustrated reported, there was never more than a two-goal lead in any of the six games. And the compelling finals had three overtime games in the first four, including an exhausting three overtime heart-thumper in Game One. It was a class act by the Blackhawks to publish a full-page ad in Boston papers last weekend thanking Boston for the courtesy and sportsmanship shown the Blackhawks during the series. Second was the disturbing news of the arrest on murder charges against former New England Patriots star tight end Aaron Hernandez. He and two others are implicated in the murder of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd. What is particularly disturbing is the fact that the multi-talented 23-year-old Hernandez, who just last year had been awarded a seven-year $41.1 million contract extension by the Patriots, had been considered by many a class act. The Patriots immediately dropped Hernandez from the team and reportedly are taking steps to void his contract. The third Boston story of the week was the departure of Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers, who left after nine seasons to take the helm of the Los Angeles Clippers. His nine successful years with the Celtics included an NBA title in 2008. Rivers had a year remaining on his contract and the Celtics will receive a first-round NBA draft choice in 2015 from the Clippers in compensation. And finally, as the 2013 Major League Baseball season reaches the half-way point, is the surprising, perhaps even amazing fact that Boston Red Sox remain atop the American League Eastern Division. From last to first is the banner of the 2013 Red Sox, who started the week with a 49-34 record, best in the American League, and a 2-1/2 game lead over Baltimore in the AL East. Red Sox fans are gleeful not only for their first-place standing but over their freefalling, bitter rival New York Yankees, who had lost four in a row and slipped 5-1/2 games behind Boston. So it was a week of the good and the bad for sports-loving Boston fans. Tough Going For Miracle In Seasons Second-Half With so many of the Fort Myers Miracle top players promoted to Double-A New Britain after clinching the seasons first-half Florida State League South Division Championship, it comes as no surprise that the second-half of the season is much more difficult. The Miracle began the week with a second-half 4-5 record, having dropped four in a row earlier in the week to Palm Beach and Jupiter before a 12-2 win last Saturday over St. Lucie. Fort Myers only home appearance this weekend is a 7:05 p.m. Friday again against Bradenton with a big post July 4th fireworks show after the game.

31 ISLAND SS UN JULY 5, 2013 From page 22 SS chool Tripstudy site at a coral area called Daves Patch Reef. Using simple but elegant research techniques, we surveyed the fish, invertebrates, corals, algae, coral diseases and surrounding sea grass at our study site. We kept detailed records of our findings, and these data are the first in what will become a long-term database of coral health at Daves Patch Reef monitored by Sanibel Sea School students annually. We exercised our scientific and creative talents by completing either an individual art project or a small group research project throughout the week. The presentations at the end of the week were very interesting and showed what an impressive group of teens we had. One group made a to-scale map of nocturnal crab activity all over the field station by following their tracks in the sand; Cameron made a beautiful watercolor of a parrotfish, a colorful and important reef fish that munches on coral and poops out sand; another group explored the success of natural versus man-made materials as artificial reefs. Outside of this assignment, one teenager, Dara, learned to weave a traditional Bahamian palm-frond basket from one of the island elders who lived down the street. Please check out our blog at sanibelseaschool.org/blog for some first-hand accounts from our students and visit our website for more pictures of our excellent adventure.

And while perfection is not their ultimate goal, the dedicated crews of the Sanibel Fire & Rescue District (SFRD) hope that their simulations staged at their Fire Station #1 four-story training tower will prepare them for any emergency they may encounter here on the islands. Last week, training officer Tim Barrett put all three working shifts through the paces of a staged simulation: a search-and-rescue operation in which the SFRD would encounter arriving at one of the islands condominium units where their ladder trucks cannot pull close-up to the structure. This is what we call one of our bread-and-butter drills, said Barrett, who informed the six-members on duty last Wednesday morning what responsibilities they would have during the simulation. Its a basic drill were gonna unload the hose and the equipment when we arrive on scene were gonna establish communications the victims in this structure are on the third floor. Barrett and firefighter/paramedic Bill Briscoe oversaw the drill, which included fellow firefighters Kevin Barbot, Carl Johansson, John Reitenbach, Mike Martin and Rob Wilkins. According to Barrett, steel barrels filled with moist hay were set on fire, which quickly filled the training tower with smoke. Working under hazardous conditions as they would encounter in real situations assists the firefighters in their training sessions. Wilkins and Johansson entered the structure, performed the search-and-rescue for the victims on the third floor, raised a three-inch hose from the ladder truck more than 125 feet away from the building, then extinguished the fire before giving the all clear signal to end the simulation. The group huddled together for a post-drill evaluation, during which Wilkins noted that his radio had either switched off or switched channels at some point. Any good fubar comes down to communication, explained Barrett. The Sanibel Fire & Rescue District performs simulation exer cises regularly, at their training tower as well as at structures on location whenever possible, in order to familiarize themselves with new equipment and to remain sharp and focused with life-saving techniques and procedures.

Ask The ChamberQ: Where can we go to see wildlife/birds/alligators/pelicans/ manatees? A: These are some of the most popular questions asked at the Visitor Center of the Sanibel Captiva Chamber Of Commerce. The staff and volunteers who staff the center are the first people whom visitors meet and they love this question because it give them the chance to talk about their favorite subject the islands of Sanibel and Captiva. This is the aspect of the job that they enjoy most: helping our many visitors up to 1,500 a day in season find the attractions for which Sanibel and Captiva are renowned worldwide. Our natural beauty and the wildlife that makes it home is a top reason for coming here and the chamber staff and volunteers know that they are the ambassadors for this extraordinary and unique resource. They also know that this resource is fragile and has to be carefully cherished; a view shared by all members of the chamber. Island businesses know that our visitors treasure the unspoiled quality of our islands and our unique natural beauty. Think how difficult it would be to recreate this quality in our modern age: par ticularly so on an island adjacent to the waters of the Gulf. Islands such as ours would have huge potential for both active recreation like fishing, boating and sailing and passive sunsoaked holidays by the sea, relaxing on our beaches. it is nothing short of miraculous that the Sanibel founding fathers not only had the vision to see the potential for Sanibel but were able to put together the plan and carry it through that saw that vision become reality. The chamber is proud to play a full part in guarding this resource not only is it vitally important to residents, it is at the heart of our members business proposition. Restaurants, hotels, resorts, small inns and cottages and retailers in variety earn their livelihood because man, in a happy alliance with nature, has turned the dream into the Sanibel that we know today. Chamber members are determined to play an active part in protecting the qualities conceived by their predecessors. We did not create them: we are remarkably fortunate in enjoying them and we accept responsibility for handing them on to future generations. Chamber members do so by actively participating in causes that have as their goal the preservation of the sanctuary quality of Sanibel. A key principle of the Sanibel plan is that Sanibel is and should remain a sanctuary: a sanctuary for wildlife and native vegetation, a sanctuary for natural beauty, a sanctuary for residents seeking tranquility and visitors seeking a unique break from the bustle and stress of urban life. The importance of sanctuary is a belief is shared by residents and businesses alike and is it lies at the center of the chambers mission To promote the prosperity of our members and preserve the quality of life in our community. The interests of residents, businesses and the natural world with which they share Sanibel are inextricably intertwined: the quality of life for human residents is dependent on conserving the natural world. The chamber, therefore, supports the non-profits and the many individuals that do so much to keep the island a haven for nature. Chamber members participate in the many fundraising activities arranged to benefit our natural environment. They work with the city to ensure that the detailed regulations that protect the Sanibel way of life are understood and respected. They also jointly explore ways to reconcile these regulations with changing realities and residents needs: for example the near universal use of smart phones has fundamentally altered the telecommunications infrastructure. Business has a responsibility to ensure that the innovation demanded by consumers in 2013 can live side-by-side with nature without harmful effects to either. Leadership provided by individuals, nonprofits, the city and businesses has shown that we recognize that we are mutually dependent on each other. All can benefit from this recognition. 5B ISL aA ND SS UN JULY 5, 2013 photos by DD ave Meardon Barrier Island Title Services, Inc.

Urban Food Hub Growing With Help Of Local Communityby Jeff LysiakWhat began as an idea only a few short years ago has been cultivated into a viable, growing garden. Located just up the road from Fleamasters Flea Market in Fort Myers, the Roots Heritage Urban Food Hub founded in 2010 by Sanibel resident Yvonne Hill was created in order to provide the community with locally-grown fresh produce, owned and operated by members of the community itself. According to Hill, the first garden was planted in 2010, and that plot of land began redesign plans six months ago. The Urban Food Hub also received a boost of support when the City of Fort Myers leased them five acres of farm land, located just behind the fresh produce stand, a structure purchased with funds supplied by the Periwinkle Garden Club of Sanibel. The original garden was comprised of about 50 simple wooden boxes. However, the Urban Food Hubs growth has exceeded the capacity those boxes could provide. So with an additional quarter-acre garden area to work with, Hill and her volunteer gardeners are hard at work planting a new crop of seasonal herbs and vegetables including tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, beets, cow Urban Farmers In Training (UFIT) volunteers work at the produce stand, in the garden and on the farm The Roots Heritage Urban Food Hubs farm and produce stand is open seven days a week photos by Jeff Lysiak This frog ornament is the Food Hubs mascot Yvonne Hill, right, founder of the Roots Heritage Urban Food Hub, discusses groundskeep ing plans with volunteer gardener Sharon Franz at the Fort Myers facility 8B IS lL AND SuSU N julJUL Y 5, 2013

There is a great historical significance of agriculture of these crops here in Southwest Florida, said Hill. People can learn about what crops were grown for traditional family recipes, some of the herbs that had medicinal benefits, and then they can buy them and use them at home. The new fenced-in garden area is decorated with brick pavers, rain barrels and antique farm equipment (which have been donated) and will be soon equipped with an outdoor kitchen and grill as well as an Agri-Tourism Learning Lab. The Roots Heritage Urban Food Hubs fresh produce stand is open seven days per week: Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. It is located at 3903 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, two miles east of Fowler Street in Fort Myers. While some of the fruit and vegetables sold there are harvested on site, additional supplies come from other farms in Lee County. People like getting their produce locally, because their fruits and vegetables arent going to lose any of their nutritional value, said Roscoe Jordan, one of the Urban Food Hub volunteers who also collects the honey sold at the stand. When you buy your produce at a big supermar ket, they get their fruit from Mexico and other countries, and by the time you buy it, its not as fresh. Here, its fresh its natural we dont use pesticides. Its healthier for you. Another Urban Food Hub volunteer, Keith Lee, noted that his neighbors prefer buying their produce from him because it helps support the community. They know its gonna be safe for them and its coming from their own community, added Lee. And because we are able to sell it to them for a better rate as well, everybodys happy with that, too. Hill noted that the next Urban Farmers In Training (UFIT) session will begin at the end of July, and that people interested in registering for the program, signing up to volunteer or donating funds or equipment for the facility should call her at 464-9925. Were a 501(c)3 non-profit, and our wish list includes an electric hook-up for our produce stand, a cooler, an irrigation system and a hoop house for shading our crops, said Hill. We would also like to do some work with hydroponics. For additional information, visit the Roots Heritage Urban Food Hub on Facebook.

10B ISLAND SS UN JULY 5, 2013 Superior InteriorsThe Perfect SS potby Cindy MalszyckiIts a common challenge in almost every home. What you ask? Where to put the TV and how to arrange a room full of furniture around this all-important home entertainment unit. And, as with many electronic products today, bigger is definitely better. So where to begin? How do you accommodate the 40-inch plus TV unit? Is it possible to hide or at least minimize these units and the components? Yes, it can be done. All it takes is a little pre-planning and some imagination. Todays beautiful and functional entertainment centers and armoires are specifically designed to close in or minimize televisions and their component equipment. When creating any furniture arrangement plan, its important that you first make a list of the activities and functions that the room will encompass. Its impor tant to think about how this room will ultimately be used. Often, a family room will have an additional problem of having two or more large focal points such as a TV, fireplace and a bar. These rooms can present a special challenge. What is your desired seating capacity? Is traffic flow around your furniture important? Are pets a consideration? What specific types of activities will be enjoyed in this room? Taking stock of exactly how you desire to use your room will ultimately help you work with your professional decorator to implement a plan for maximizing the activity in the room. Its important to take into consider ation the positions of windows and doors; directions of room exposure and traffic patterns before determining locations for various pieces. Naturally, placing your television directly opposite a wall of windows would be less ideal. Exposure to strong sunlight, humidity, extreme heat and even less extreme but frequent changes of temperature may affect various pieces of furniture, limiting possible placement. Furniture arranging is a fun and often challenging experience, just like putting the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle together. Successful furniture arrangement is not a hit and miss matter. Its a skillful process and can be done easily and beautifully when you can take the time to carefully plan your room. Cindy Malszycki is an interior designer on Sanibel/Captiva Islands.

19B ISLAND SS UN JULY 5, 2013 I write this column from my familys annual summer vacation in Breckenridge, Colorado. Its great to escape Southwest Floridas heat and humidity for a little while, as high temperatures here are in the low 70s. You wake up in the morning to high 30s. And despite news reports to the contrary, the state is not burning down. At least where we are its not. One of the many activities my family enjoys while we are out here is hiking the many nature trails that lead up mountainsides to dazzling waterfalls and alpine lakes. But sometimes finding the trailhead can be a challenge, even with the guidebooks and maps. I travel with a Garmin GPS unit and, for the most part, its very good, except when on these back country dirt roads where most of the trailheads are located. Coming up on a fork in the road, I ask my wife Patti, Should we take the left fork up or the right fork down? How should I know? Patti responds. I decide to go up. Recalculating, Mrs. Garmin exclaims in her soothing GPS voice. I hear my teenage daughters laughter coming from the backseat of our rented SUV. Despite the frustration of taking a wrong turn, I find it amazing when technology can help you correct a driving mistake. Believe it or not, you can gear up your estate plan to recalculate if you make a mistake as well. You can do this by granting someone a power of appointment. Suppose, for example, that your estate plan leaves your assets in a continuing trust that benefits your spouse for the rest of his or her life. You can name your spouse as his or her own trustee so they dont have to turn to a bank or trust company to receive income or assets. At your spouses death your trust then distributes to your children in equal shares. But what happens if one of your children becomes addicted to drugs or alcohol? What if they have made other poor choices that dont warrant an inheritance, or at least control their own share as they normally would? There might also be tax reasons to exercise a power of appointment. What if the distribution to grandchildren in the document would trigger a generation skipping tax that can be avoided? What if there are income tax issues that can be cleaned up? Since you are dead, you cant change the provisions of your will, right? While you cant change your will, you can imbed a power of appointment to your spouse to allow him or her to change it. You can limit the powering in a way such that they cant leave your estate to a new spouse that they remarry, but you can allow them to change how much or in what manner your children eventually receive their inheritance. There is a danger with leaving a power of appointment, however. Your spouse could disinherit one of your intended beneficiaries for almost any reason, including a reason that you may consider frivolous. So when granting a power of appointment, you have to be sure that you explicitly trust that person, and should go so far as to have a conversation with him or her about your expectations. This leads me to another interesting point. If you are a beneficiary of a continuing trust, you may have a power of appointment yourself. Suppose your father left a trust for you that continues on for your lifetime and then terminates on your death to your children. You may want your estate planning attorney to review your fathers trust to determine whether you have a power of appointment to change the ultimate disposition of the assets. You may want your spouse to receive the income from those assets if you predecease him or her before the assets are distributed to your children. You may also find it advantageous for your childrens inheritance to continue on in trust as opposed to an outright distribution that could become subject to the claims of a divorcing spouse or creditors. To exercise the power, you have to include very specific language in your will. A general disposition of everything to my wife is not an exercise of a power. Instead, your will should specifically refer ence the power and then be very specific and direct as to how the assets are to be distributed. Its easy to mess this up and create more problems than you solve, as there are a host of legal and tax issues associated with the identification and exercise of a power of appointment. But its nice to know that you can build in your own recalculation of your estate plan if it should become necessary. Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at www.sbshlaw.com. Will PowerRecalculatingby Craig R.

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, Honor thy father and thy mother. It seems to me I hear it every week at church. My mother was living alone in her apartment and she was becoming confused, depressed and lonely. We decide to ask her to come and live with us. I came home from work each noon to prepare her lunch and have a short visit, and then it became just too much. As a family, we realized we just couldnt make all of the lifestyle changes and give mother the care she needed. So, we decided to place her in a retirement complex. She is miserable and so am I. I feel so guilty and ashamed for what I have done and going to church just intensifies my guilt. Can you help me, and do you have any suggestions? Sharon Dear Sharon, Please dont be so hard on yourself. You are honoring your mother you are caring for her. People are now living so much longer and society just has not caught up with all of those needs. Houses are smaller and many families just dont have the room for older family members. You have a family of your own and their needs must be met. Arrange for a meeting with the director of your mothers complex and they may be able to help her adjust to her new living environment. While the adjustment for some individuals and for families is at times difficult, this is wonderful win-win situation. Lizzie Dear Sharon, Aging is just not an individual experience. Aging is a family experience, and your mothers needs are just as impor tant as your needs and everyones needs should be balanced. If it is not possible to give good care at home, then keeping her at home is not the best care. Most associate living provides good medical care and social support. Your mother should be well cared for and care providing less stressful. Any continued on page 22B Got AA Problem? DD r. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: I am going through some grief over the loss of a loved one. I would like some help in explaining the stages of grief to my children.A: Many different kinds of loss can initiate stages of grief. These stages are intertwined, and it is natural to weave in and out of different stages at any moment. I say to many of my grieving clients that grief is a strange thing. One moment we can think that we have it all together, then the next we literally fall apart. People ask me how they can get over the pain of grieving. Truthfully, the only way to get past grief is to go through it. There is no right or wrong way to grieve. You grieve in your own way. One does not get over the losses of a loved one, a beloved pet, a job, a house, a marriage, a missed opportunity, a financial loss. Rather, one heals through the grieving process and moves on. When grief strikes, go through it and realize that it is not the time it takes to grieve, but rather what we do within that time to heal that really matters. Denial is our chief defense. It protects us from pain. If we block the trauma, then we dont have to work through the pain. The long-term consequences can be devastating, since we are not fully living, rather just existing from day to day with no relief from the pain. Once you can come to terms with denial, you will most likely be able to move into the next stage of grief. Remember, grieving is healing, as are the other stages, especially when you are able to move fully through each stage and come to acceptance. For a time, anger is very often a part of the healing process. If we stay stuck in our anger too long, be it anger at our selves, God, or a loved one, we obstruct the healing process. Anger makes our ego feel better, but not the soul. When aligned with the will of the soul, we want to open up again to living fully and wholly. When we support our ego, by expressing anger, we prevent ourselves from feeling true peace. Anger masks the real hurt that lies beneath the grief. Again, staying in anger too long can consume and immobilize you, which prevents you from healing the deep wounds at your core. To work on letting go of your anger, journal about your anger. Then make a ritual of releasing or getting rid of your anger. You can bury what you journaled, or burn it. Tear the pages into pieces and flush them down the toilet. Pack them in a hot air balloon. Put them in a bottle and throw them out to sea, or throw them off a mountain top. Depression is a familiar place we go when we experience a loss. It is sad to lose someone or something we cherish and missed opportunities can engender regret. I remember hearing continued on page 22B

It works, but is there something else to manage this or the pain and itch? Me and my kids get bit frequently and I dont like the idea of taking a bath in chemical creams. KK, Tulsa, OklahomaI have other bath ideas to share with you. What you do for a bug bite depends on the type of critter. For example, bites from bees, wasps, yellow jackets and fire ants are the most common. Unless youre highly allergic, these bites can be treated at home. Bites from scorpions and certain spiders often require medical attention. Bites from ticks (if youre lucky enough to see it, because you wont feel it) should be treated with prescribed antibiotics for at least 4 weeks. Let me keep it simple today. Pharmacists like hydrocortisone cream because it works quickly, controls the itch, pain, swelling and redness. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) cream may help in this regard too. Lidocaine or numbing sprays provide yet another option to minimize pain. Here are other potential solutions: Ice pack The cold takes down swelling and pain. Baking soda Right after you get bit, make a paste using baking soda and water, add in meat tenderizer if you have it. Reapply every 15 minutes for about an hour. It helps with pain, itch and redness. The meat tenderizer neutralizes venom injected into you by the bug. Ibuprofen or acetaminophen Overthe-counter medications that temporarily control pain. Oral antihistamines Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is often used to control fullbody itching. Dont say I didnt warn you (yawn), this stuff can knock you out. No driving! Toothpaste Fluoride in toothpaste seems to calm the sting. Essential oils Lavender oil is soothing and acts as a natural anti-inflammatory and anti-venom aid. Peppermint oil and lavender both reduce risk of infection. Tea Tree oil may disinfect the area. These oils may sting if you apply undiluted. For some, a 50/50 mix with a carrier oil such as olive or coconut might be better. You can put essential oils in your bath. Speaking of baths... Peroxide and Epsom salts Dump the whole 4-pound pack of Epsom salts in warm (not hot) water, along with a pint (or two) of hydrogen peroxide. This home remedy has anecdotal evidence; its a very strong detoxifying bath and might cause an unpleasant Herxheimer reaction the first few times, so get your doctors blessings. Its not right for everyone. Aveeno Oatmeal This is 100 percent colloidal oatmeal helps to control itching; pour the flakes under the faucet of your bath and soak in it. Think thats weird? Its not compared to what I say next. Preparation H Hemorrhoidal CreamIt contains pramoxine which controls pain. Chiggerex Chiggers are immature mites and not easily seen. Their itch is diabolical, compared to their microscopic size. Chiggerex is sold at pharmacies and brings quick relief. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

Eden Energy Medicine AA ctivate AA ll NN ine Energy SS ystems In 5 Minutes, Part 1by Karen LL SS emmelman, Certified EEM, JDJD AAAA M LL You are no doubt asking whats with these 5 minutes again? The answer is simple; you have learned the 5 Minute Routine over the last several months and realize the benefits of each exercise individually. However, it is imperative to emphasize that by daily completing the 5 Minute Routine, you are activating each of the nine energetic systems that form the basis of Eden Energy Medicine (EEM). None of these systems stand alone, but are integrally connected providing invaluable support to your health and well-being. This interconnectedness is what enables a person to reduce pain, feel invigorated, find balance, diminish achy joints and enhance well-being. Thus, the next two columns will briefly introduce the nine systems and define each. As the months go by, more infor mation will be provided about each. Meridians Defined energetic pathways serving as the bodys bloodstream. The 14 meridians are each associated with a named organ. Access to the ener gy of organs is provided on the surface of the skin as well as deep channels feeding energy to organs, muscles and cells. Chakras Located from the pelvic floor to the top of the head, these seven swirling balls of energy bathe and fuel the organs within close proximity. Governing the endocrine system, they encode and process physical, emotional, spiritual and mental experiences. Each has seven layers, existing deep in our bodies and reaching out to touch our auric field. Aura Like the chakras, there are seven layers to our aura, the first very close to the body and the others reaching out into the world. These layers act as antenna pulling into our systems beneficial energy that we need to exist, while at the same time protecting and filtering toxic and disruptive energies from the environment. While enveloping the body, the aura processes nutrients like sunlight for your well-being and integrates the magnetic field of the Earth to your own energy Radiant Circuits Believed to be the precursor to meridians, they have circuits which can be activated to create the joy juice of being, thus creating positive feelings. These subtle energies support all other systems, moving instantly to where they may be needed for healing within the body or in the field. I think of them as twinkly little stars that sprinkle joy wher ever they are called to assist.continued on page 23B ISLAND PHARMACY(Voted Best Pharmacy on The Island 6 years) CARING FOR YOU AND ABOUT YOU 2330 Palm Ridge Rd. #12, Sanibel From page 21B DD r. ConnieChristopher Reeve give a talk about five months before his passing. He said that he allowed himself to be depressed for 10 minutes each day, then he went about his day. That was all, 10 minutes. Depression occurs along with the grief process. It passes. You weave in and out. If the depression lasts longer than a month, it is best to talk with your health care professional for information to help guide you through this difficult time. Talking with your doctor is the first important step in deciding the most appropriate treatment plan. People who suffer with long-term chronic depression are at risk for heart disease and poor physical health. When you are in the throws of depression, it seems at times there is no way out. Know that there is and remember that it takes time to heal. When you are experiencing depression, you may lose your passion for living. Your symptoms may include a sense of helplessness or hopelessness, sleep distur bance, change in appetite, lack of inter est in things that were once pleasurable, and a change in mood. People with a diagnosis of severe depression may have to be on an anti-depressant medication for a period of time. Medication can be prescribed by a medical doctor or nurse practitioner with experience in treating depression. Along with medical care, the assistance of a psychotherapist or psychologist can be most beneficial. The rate of depression is on the rise from the number of women now trying to do it all, thinking they need anti-depressants to get through the day. For these women, it is easier to take a pill than to go to a therapist and seek assistance to make the necessary changes to overcome their depression. These women should be aware of the root cause of the problem that led to the depression, then make changes to resolve it rather than medicate it. Acceptance is a place we reach when we have truly worked through the other grief stages and we are ready to move on. In acceptance, we start to become aware of new opportunities, which may lead to new beginnings. SS hare your community news with us. Call 395-1213, Fax: 395-2299or email press@islandsunnews.com

23B ISLAND SS UN JULY 5, 2013 Dr. DaveWax On, Wax Offby DD r. DD ave HepburnWhaaaat did he say, Mildred?? HE SAID YOURE DEAF, YOU OLD FOOL. Im dead??? NO BERT... NOT YET. I finally interrupt this romantic inter lude. Mrs. Bloggins, your husbands ears are jammed with wax. I got jam on my slacks??? yells Bert. Warning: If reading about bodily fluids makes you at all queasy or if the phrase bodily fluids itself induces violent waves of nausea, perhaps this column is best not read at the dinner table. In fact, it is foolish to ever read medical columns in the vicinity of tomato soup, cauliflower, refried beans or sushi. Today, EAR WAX... (retch). Ear wax, medically referred to as cerumen, has been tenderly cultured in your ear canal by mother nature for a reason... so leave it alone! (For those of you hard of hearing... SO LEAVE IT ALONE!) It is not bad stuff. It is good stuff. Cerumen is made by special glands called plugger-uppers that live on the outer third of your ear canal. It has three purposes to its sluggish existence. First, it protects the very sensitive skin of your ear canal from water and infections. Secondly, it protects your ear drum from dirt and grit by trapping it before it gets to the drum. And finally, cerumen gets great glee out of driving normally intelligent people to distraction as they attempt to rotorooter it out with everything ranging from Q-tips to cue sticks. If wax is so good for us, why do we try so hard to get it out? Perhaps it is a teleological thing that began when mother Eve licked the corner of her fig leaf and washed Abels chin and then ram-rodded it down Cains canal to get out the wax, put there no doubt by the serpent. Or, perhaps, it is because we have this innate desire to scrape off anything that isnt nailed to our carcass. Unfortunately, the practice of ramming bobby pins, fingernails or darning needles into our ears is highly detrimental. Not only does it denude the ear of the protective cerumen and introduce micro cracks into the skin of the canal itself (which, in turn, gets infected), but it also jams the wax up against a very flimsy drum. What follows is itchiness, infection, swelling and pain in the canal that makes you rush down to the doctor with what is actually called Q-tip ear. NEVER STICK ANYTHING SMALLER THAN YOUR ELBOW IN YOUR EAR! Warning: It seems that wherever there is an orifice in the human body, there are practitioners willing to cleanse or irrigate it. The ear canal, unfortunately, is not immune. Ear candling is one of those ancient Druid practices invented by Charla Tan whereby the victim actually has hollow wax candles stuck in each ear... and then lit! The practitioner then dashes out of the room collapsing in spasms of laughter, sobered only by the fact that he has just made another $50. A vacuum is created wherein some ear wax along with significant amounts of cerebral grey matter are sucked into the hollow tube. While some folks generate a meagre amount of wax, others make enough to plug up the entire canal... in Panama. In some cases, the natural process of wax removal does not work well and the ear jams up. Avoid Q-tips. But before going to the doctor, please: a. apply a few drops of olive or mineral oil to the ear canal for three days, or b. mix baking soda with a couple of ounces of water and dump that in there three times a day for a couple of days. Then, c. see the doctor who will (retch... gag) gently flush your ear. Using a 300,000 psi powerwasher, the water is fired into your ear, whereby it strikes your drum and returns with the hated wax. Unless, of course, you happen to follow the sayings of Snooki, in which case it comes flying out the other ear. And then theres ol Bert, who winks at me as he glances at a haranguing Mildred and whispers Doc, just leave it in there. Listen live or call in to Dr Dave on his fun yet informative radio show, Wisequacks, heard each Sunday at 5 p.m. at www.cknw.com. Contact Dr. Dave or read more at www.wisequacks.org. From page 22BEnergy SS ystemsTriple Warmer Serves in dual roles: as a meridian and as a Radiant Circuit. It is the warrior of our body, governing the immune system; our fight/flight/freeze response; and our survival mechanism. Acting as a meridian, we may access its energy through its defined pathway just like the other meridians. As a Radiant Circuit, TW is very powerful, taking energy from all other meridians (except heart) if their energy is necessary to maintain the bodys habits. Frequently these habits arent healthy, i.e. a person has cancer or heart disease and operates in a physically improper way; which necessitates activating the persons habit fields to shift them from the harmful automatic response that has developed. Next week, we will review the remaining four energetic systems. Have fun with your energy! Next weeks topic is Activate All Nine Energy Systems, Part 2.
