Small, non-electrical equipment such as wheelchairs, walkers or canes are available for temporary loan on a first come, first serve basis. For many years, the Sanibel Fire and Rescue District has graciously accepted and stored equipment returns, keeping them until FISH volunteers could clean and transfer them to their City Hall pickup location. When the storage space became unavailable a few months ago, the City of Sanibel, Sanibel Fire and FISH worked together to help permit, install and anchor a new equipment storage shed on the Sanibel Fire property. Those needing medical equipment should call the FISH answering service at 4720404. An equipment volunteer will return your call, confirm your request and arrange to meet at City Hall, where the FISH equipment check out room is located. In certain instances, a FISH volunteer may be able to deliver the requested equipment.

There are not very many bells and whistles in here, said Zimomra in describing the preliminary budget package prepared for the city council, which were distributed late last week. Mayor Kevin Ruane, who said that he had already put in at least 25 hours of work on the budget, recommended working with city staff at finding an additional $1.3 million required to fund the police pension fund in the citys coffers. He also suggested the staff-recommended rollback millage rate of 2.0861, down slightly from last years rate of 2.1 mills.continued on page 6

ISLAND SUN JULY 19, 20132 Does Anyone Remember This Building?The folks at the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village are hoping someone will recognize this forgotten building so it can take its place in history. Long-time Sanibel vacationer and visitor to the museum Susan Fish of Gainesville brought in these two photographs hoping to find answers to her questions: what was this building, who owned it, and exactly where was it? She knows the building which has the numbers 1881 on the front was on Periwinkle Way, but is not sure 1881 refers to an address. Fish and her family stopped there every year, fascinated by the structure. Their research yielded nothing. If anyone has information on the building, please contact museum manager Emilie Alfino at the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village by calling 472-4648, Wednesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., or email info@sanibelmuseum.org. Sanibel Historical Village Closing For Season August 3The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village will close after Saturday, August 3 for the remainder of the summer and into early fall. The museum will re-open on Wednesday, November 6 and resume a Wednesday through Saturday schedule from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. According to museum manager Emilie Alfino, the traditional three months when the museum is closed to the public affords staff an opportunity to make any needed repairs, repaint and spruce up the grounds. Museum volunteers also use the break to prepare next seasons exhibits and plan special events. Administrative staff members are busy updating databases, refining procedures, marketing and improving existing exhibits. Hurricane shutters go up on all the windows until the week before re-opening. The village may be quiet, but we keep working behind the scenes to improve the museum and to prepare for next season, said Alfino. I already have more goals for the summer than I can probably fulfill, but every goal is a labor of love and makes the village a more enriching, educational and fun experience for our visitors. Next seasons visitors to the village can look forward to a continuing array of exhibits in each of the seven historic buildings and special docent-led tours of the village at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. In addition, Twilight Talks, which were so popular in the past, are being planned. Meanwhile, work continues on Shore Haven and its Caretakers Cottage. The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village is currently open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and is located at 950 Dunlop Road (next to BIG ARTS). There is handicap access to all buildings. Admission is $5 for adults 18 and over. Members and children under 18 are free. For more information, call 472-4648 during business hours. Do you know what and where this building was? Museum visitor Susan Fish of Gainesville used to visit this old building every year on vacation.

Ryan Cunningham, representative for Kittleson & Associates, identified the minimum standards for crosswalk safety, according to Florida Statutes, Chapter 316, along with the responsibilities of motorists, pedestrians and cyclists at crosswalks. The three intersections being investigated by the city included: Queen and Lazy Flamingo) Jerrys Market) Lily & Co. Jewelry Gallery) According to Cunningham, their goal was to recommend a marked crosswalk at all stop-controlled intersection approaches and uncontrolled intersection approaches should consider marked crosswalks and additional conditions (including illumination and treatments such as Rapid Rectangular Flashing Beacons). After presenting several design options at each location, a preferred alternative at each crossing was submitted to the council for their consideration. But before they took a vote on the matter, Mayor Kevin Ruane asked for public input on the subject. Resident Dick Muench said that he supported the design alternative submitted for the Periwinkle Way/Bailey Road intersection, however, he called the proposed 10-foot bike path extension overkill, suggesting a narrower path could be used. Tom Sharbaugh, representing the Sanibel Bicycle Club, praised all three crosswalk designs, noting that they will improve the safety of the shared use paths. He suggested that the city consider adding lighting and reflectors for riders who use the crosswalks at night. Its a lot safer and it makes a lot of sense, so I would be in favor of the designs the city staff are recommending, said councilman Marty Harrity. Ruane, however, asked for some additional engineer ing details as well as some further details about the pros and cons of each proposed design submitted, including an explanation about exactly how much safer each crossing will become. Mick Denham requested information about cost estimates for this project, in addition to whether it could be completed before the start of season. According to Keith Williams, Public Works Director, the city could put a request for bids if the council approves the project at its next meeting, on August 6. Resident Claudia Burns, speaking about the Periwinkle/Casa Ybel crossing, suggested that it would be safer and more efficient to have pedestrians and bicyclists cross Periwinkle from the east corner of Casa Ybel, rather than the west corner as proposed by the staff-approved design. Fellow islander Karen Storjohann added that trees may interfere with the line of sight for oncoming motorists along Periwinkle Way. Dan Schuyler, co-owner of Lily & Co. Jewelry Gallery, gave his approval for the city-designed shortterm site plan, but suggested designing a landing area for pedestrians and bicyclists on the north corner of Island Inn Road, where he said would be the busiest spot for both foot and bike traffic. Council agreed to bring back additional information at their next meeting related to the crosswalk designs. In other business. council voted 4-0 with Harrity recusing himself in favor of approving Resolution 13-060, establishing a policy to review city building and planning fees. A minor hiccup occurred when Denham balked at setting the application deadline at June 5, 2013, which could open the door to a number of applicants applying for a return of their fees. I dont see the need to backtrack the fees to June 5th, said Denham, who called the policy unfair. After further discussion, council decided to amend the resolution to apply to applications filed on or after June 5, 2013 through December 31, 2013.

The increased millage amounted to approximately $400,000 in reserves. Lets be cautious right now, added Jennings. Ruane, a veteran of seven city budgets, said that he was very comfortable with the staffs recommendation. Marty Harrity backed the Mayor, adding, As time goes on, were gonna find stuff here and move stuff there, so things are gonna change with this. Jennings agreed to vote with his fellow councilman, but noted, I like the idea of having a little more leeway. The council voted 5-0 in favor of approving the tentative millage rate, as well as a tentative budget of $8,580,499. This is a very fiscally responsible council one who watches its nickels and dimes very well, added Harrity. The council will conduct the first budget public hear ing on Saturday, September 7 at 9 a.m., during which they will discuss and adopt the tentative millage rate and FY2014 budget. The second and final budget hearing will be held on Tuesday, September 17 at 5:01 p.m.

During the year many Art League members participate in workshops to learn new techniques and refine their skills. Several members teach painting and drawing locally to both adults and children who are at all levels of achievement. Some of the members joined the Art League as beginners because of the friendly encouragement offered by the more professional and award-winning painters. Art League members participate in the annual auction to benefit the non-profit Friends in Service Here, neighbors helping neighbors. Baileys provides reusable grocery bags that each artist uses as a canvas to paint a variety of subjects and beautiful local scenes. The bags are displayed in March and the auction proceeds are donated to the FISH food pantry. The current art show contains creative artwork by talented artists of all experience levels. Color, design and composition is evident in the large variety of materials used and subject matter. The Library, 472-2483 is at 770 Dunlop Rd. next to City Hall.

9 ISLAND SUN JULY 19, 2013 AS acred Moment In A Coffee L inesubmitted by Rev. D r. Ellen M. S loanAs I hastily made my way to the coffee stand at Health Park Hospital, I heard the most heavenly strains of music. For those of you who know Health Park, it resembles more a hotel lobby than a hospital with palm trees, waterfalls, vaulted ceilings, balconies and flowing streams. Theres also a grand piano there where various people take turns playing each day of the week. So, the strains of music decorating the massive space were a common occurrence Id often heard the piano playing here, so I didnt look over to see who it was. I figured that after my coffee, Id walk over and say my usual Thank you to the pianist of the day. The line for coffee was long and I waited... when suddenly, I heard Mozarts Fantasy in D minor begin to waft through the air. It was exquisitely performed and I tried to look through the lush lobby vegetation to see who was playing. I couldnt quite see and didnt want to lose my place in line, so I stayed put. Following Mozart, a Bach Minuet began and it was so incredible that I decided no cup of coffee was worth it right now. I had to go and see who had their fingers on the ebony and ivory. As I walked closer to the piano, I noticed quite a group of people gathered there... and then I saw him: a small boy about the age of 9 or 10. I had heard and read about child prodigies, but Id never, ever witnessed one. I was awestruck, as were all the people around me. The innocence of his demeanor, the tiny hands traveling up and down the keys, his closed eyes, and the way he swayed back and forth to the beautiful rhythms was overwhelming. And all of this with no music in front of him. I found my throat catching suddenly and tears at the corners of my eyes. It was one of those moments when I felt God had gifted me with the sight of His glorious handiwork, front and center. From Mozart to Bach to Beethoven the notes came forth from those small human hands like spiritual gifts given from that childs Creator and offered to all of us. I saw the boys family off to one side and went over to thank them and to share how Id felt the presence of God in their son. The father said his son Noah was a miracle in their lives. Someone spontaneously added that she wondered how anyone could doubt the existence of God when seeing such a gift of creation. I nodded my head. Eventually, I wandered back into my daily reality of hospital visits and headed to the elevators. The ascent in the elevator was almost surreal as I savored the gift just given to me and realized again the truth beyond my under standing: thats Gods holy and lifegiving Spirit though always with me had actually tapped me on the shoulder in a long coffee line and made me gasp in renewed amazement and thanksgiving. What a sacred moment.

Marthas love for children led her to attend Kalamazoo College and to graduate from Wayne State University with bachelors and masters degrees in Elementary Education. After college, Martha met her future husband, Bud Ryckman, who she married in 1945. She enjoyed a 21-year career as a kindergarten/first grade teacher in the Detroit Public Schools. In addition to teaching, one of Bud and Marthas loves was co-directing a summer camp serving many underprivileged children from the Detroit area. Upon moving to Sanibel in 1975, she was the first director of the Childrens Education Center of the Islands and taught there until 1983. Martha was also an enthusiastic supporter of the Ding Darling Wildlife Society, Sanibel Community Church and the Sanibel United Church of Christ. In 1991, Bud and Martha moved to Shell Point. While at Shell Point, she was an active member of the Pavilion Auxiliary Board beginning in 1993, serving as the President of the Auxiliary from 1999 to 2003. Marthas greatest joy was her family, as well as a diverse and wonderful group of friends. She was married to the love of her life and her best friend, Bud, for 52 incredible years, until his death in 1997. She is survived by her two devoted sons, Douglas (Kris) and Frederick (Susan) Ryckman and their families, including eight grandchildren and four greatgrandchildren. A service celebrating Marthas life will be held on Saturday, July 20 at the Shell Point Village Church at 11:15 a.m. In lieu of flowers, please direct memorial gifts to the Childrens Education Center of the Islands, 350 Casa Ybel Road, Sanibel, FL 33957.

Take a walk on the beach and you may be lucky enough to see tiny chicks running around, looking for food. Like most shorebirds, snowy plovers nest right on the beach and are potential prey for a host of predators. Their main defense is camouflage, and they blend so well with the color of Sanibels sand that its almost impossible to see them unless theyre moving. Because snowy plovers have declined in numbers over the years, theyre listed as threatened by the State of Florida. In 2002, the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) initiated their Snowy Plover Project, along with the JN Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge and the City of Sanibel, to study and protect these vulnerable ground nesters. On Friday, July 26 at 11 a.m., Joel Caouette, SCCFs shorebird monitoring coordinator, will partner with Claudia Burns, longtime Snowy Plover Project volunteer, to present The Secret Lives of Snowy Plovers at the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW). The presentation will feature photos of these cryptic birds along with insights into their behavior, which is often completely different than that of birds who nest in trees. This is a rare opportunity to learn about a threatened species that depends on Sanibels beach for its continued survival, as well as to tour CROWs Healing Winds Visitor Education Center and learn more about their efforts to save wildlife through compassion, care and education. CROW is located at 3883 Sanibel-Captiva Road, across from The Sanibel School. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for teens and free for members and children 12 and under.

ISLAND SUN JULY 19, 201316 Shell Museum Volunteers Complete MoveFor the last four years, a group of volunteers from The BaileyMatthews Shell Museum has worked tirelessly to help organize the museums shell collection. Acquired over the years, the enormous collection of shells has been brought out of boxes and sorted into a safe, appropriate storage and collections area. Sanibel resident Tom Risher, originally from Green Pond, New Jersey, has been one of the museums most active and engaged volunteers. Risher spearheaded the process by implementing a strategy around arranging the large volume of shells donated to the museum and integrating them into the collection. Together with Leroy Nietzel, Ann Moeder, Smoky and Stephanie Payson, Judy Gaggin, Susan Sprout and Genese Hessman, the volunteers have made critical strides in helping organize the museums collection management process. These volunteers have donated countless amounts of hours and energy to the museum, said Laura Richardson, the museums full-time collection manager. Many museums around the country still have their collections in basements or attics, which speaks very highly of the initiative taken by our volunteers and their commitment to finishing the task. We are proud of the work they have accomplished and we thank them for their dedication to the museum. For more information about the museum, visit www.shellmuseum.org or call 395-2233.

17 ISLAND SUN JULY 19, 2013 CROW Case Of The Week: Common Moorhenby Patricia MolloyThe common moorhen (Gallinula chloropus), nicknamed the Swamp Chicken, is a secretive duck-like bird found most commonly in shallow, freshwater and brackish marshes. While it may prefer to stay out of sight, it possesses a large repertoire of gargling calls and loud hisses commonly used when it perceives an eminent threat. The common moorhen is widespread throughout Africa, Europe, India and South America; its preferred breeding grounds in North America extend south from New England, along the Atlantic coastline, and north from the Gulf of Mexico to the Great Lakes. The moorhen currently at CROW is an adult female which was very weak and lethargic upon arrival. Unable to stand, radiographs were taken to look for injures such as fractures and hemorrhaging. None were found. Hospital Director Dr. Heather Barron was concerned that the bird was suffering from brevetoxicosis caused by red tide exposure or capture myopathy, a noninfectious disease in which exertion and stress cause muscle damage. She ordered the patient to be treated with an oral pain reliever and antibiotics. Several days after her admission to the wildlife clinic, Dr. Heather reviewed the patients condition with Dr. Kristen Dube, CROWs new DVM intern. Dr. Kristen remarked, She looks a bit depressed to me and I want to go back and look at her radiographs. She is still not standing up. She has movement in her legs and she has sensation in her legs, so Im not sure what is wrong because there was no indication of trauma in her initial radiographs. Personally, I fear it could be capture myopathy and that is not a very good prognosis. I will look at her radiographs again and reassess her today, replied Dr. Heather. Also distressing is the fact that she is not eating on her own, possibly due to stress. If you love the islands diverse and exotic wildlife, support the clinics patients by donating items from its Supply Wish List: paper towels, Purina ONE Kitten Chow, bleach, Purina Puppy Chow (no colored chunks), red heat lamps (250W), contractor clean-up bags (42 gallon), wild bird seed, laundry detergent (fragrance free), hand and bath towels (new or gently used), Clorox Clean-up and ceramic crocs (ramekins, etc.) of all sizes.

19 ISLAND SUN JULY 19, 2013 BOAT RENTALS 472-5800 Readying Your Coastline For Rising Waterssubmitted by Ken and Kate Gooderham, ASBPA executive directorsMost of us know that wide beaches, high dunes and stronger buildings enable coastal areas to survive rising seas and stronger storms. But if you want to see what the nuts and bolts of preparing a major coastal area for an uncertain future looks like, New York City has done the work and the final result is a lesson for us all. In the wake of Superstorm Sandy and some eight months, 438 pages and an estimated $20 billion price tag later the soon-to-be-departed Bloomberg administration has put a plan (and cost) on how the most intensely developed coastal area in our country plans to prepare to deal with the dual disasters. According to reports on the studys conclusions, the scope of the improvements cuts across the cityscape from hardening the power grid to withstand flood waters, making existing structures (particularly public housing) more stormand surge-resistant, restoring soft coastal defenses such as marshes, oyster beds and (of course) dunes and beaches, building hard protection where necessary to prevent flooding, and a whole host of other ideas some of which are not included in the current cost as they will require further study. Those who want more details can look it up online (www.nyc.gov/html/ sirr/html/report/report.shtml), but heres what coastal professionals around the country should draw from the Big Apples conclusions: the simplest of plans to counter the threats of sea level rise and more intense storms will take years even decades to achieve even the most basic improvements. due to the potential magnitude of the problem and the scope of its impact not to mention the interconnectedness of coastal management where a fix here can create an unintended problem over there it really takes a broad-brush big-picture approach to have a real impact. ing and it wont get any cheaper if you wait. Consider that the cost of the NYC plan is roughly equal to the recovery costs from Sandy to the same area, and you decide which is a smarter investment. partnership to get it done, covering many jurisdictions and disciplines. This isnt a big-government solution, its a big-picture solution and the private sector needs to be part of the planning from Day One. Its their homes and lives at stake, their businesses and infrastructure at risk and their dollars that will need to help pay for this. unique needs and issues that will demand unique answers. To be effective, communities will need to set priorities and have different approaches to succeed and nothing in the coastal toolbox should be off the table in this discussion. The final and perhaps most lasting lesson from all this is that the plan you start with is not the plan youll see in place when (or if) things reach completion. Lessons will be learned, needs will be reshuffled, sticker shock will take its toll and, mostly, youll learn something new from every storm, from every new study of sea level, from new technology and old principles. Youll also need to adapt to the unique conditions each coastal community faces, with an overall goal being prepared for rising seas either incrementally increasing over years or rapidly rising due to storms tempered by the caseby-case solutions that must be crafted for each coastline facing this crisis. While some things remain constant such as that wide beaches and high dunes will keep storm waves and rising tides away from upland infrastructure everything else about the coast evolves. That shouldnt prevent you from starting your planning now (in fact, quite the opposite), but it should remind you to think big, learn often and keep searching for the best solution to keep coastlines and their communities healthy.

ISLAND SUN JULY 19, 201320 Still Trying To Stay Dryby Capt. Matt MitchellOur summer pattern of dodging thunderstorms continued this week. Morning, day or night storms brought rains ranging from light showers to total downpours with dangerous lightning. If you managed to stay dry out on the water this week, you were one of the lucky few. Big high morning tides along with a provailing south wind pushing the water up even higher was the perfect set up for good for redfish action. Finding mullet schools was the key for me to get on redfish up to 32 inches. When targeting these redfish, I have been fishing areas of small, sandy potholes out from mangrove islands in the southern sound. The more mullet you found in a area, the more redfish were there. My rig of choice for these redfish is a medium-sized pinfish hooked between the head and dorsel fin on a 1/4 oz. jig head with about two feet of leader under a float. Keep the leader just short enough; the bait cannot hide in the grass. Often these reds will chase the pinfish up to the surface while trying to swallow it and then bump and mouth it several times before finally eating and moving off with the bait. Dead sticking cut mullet and ladyfish chunks also got the job done on these redfish, but the majority of these fish seemed to prefer the live bait option. Snook fishing was also consistently good action all week in the passes on lower stages of the tide. Drifting live pinfish and grunts with a split shot so it bounces the bottom caught snook after snook of all sizes. The majority of these snook are in the 20to 30-inch range, but be ready to hook that monster that will freight train you. We had a few hook ups this week that simply could not be turned before the hard fighting fish made it to structure and parted ways. With our water really dirty colored now because of all the rain, sight fishing out on the beaches pretty much came to a end for the time being. Although there are still plenty of fish all along our beaches, its more about covering water or finding structure and troughs between the sandbars than simply seeing them. A search bait like a swim bait or a white bucktail jig is a good option to find these snook. Tarpon are still around both gulf side and in the bay. They are not in the big numbers of May and June but can be found in the usual places. Between thunderstorms one morning this week, I was amazed at how many tarpon just appeared in one of my more favorite places in the sound. When the water went slick calm, tarpon just started popping up all over. After about an hour of having fish consistently rolling all around us and not hooking up, frustration got the best of us and we moved off to catch some snook in the pass. Gag grouper fishing in the deeper passes is still happening, though the numbers of keeper-sized fish keeps getting less and less as season has now been open a few weeks and these easy to get to pass fish have been hit hard. A better option now to get that gag grouper dinner is to head a few miles offshore in the 20to 30-foot range and troll deep diving plugs. Run a two rod spread with Manns Stretch 20s and 30s far enough behind the boat to bump the bottom. Look for fish heavens and ledges as a good starting place. When you hook a fish, hit the mark button on your GPS and then head back over this same area. Our summer rains have really made getting out fishing a little tough this last few weeks. Luckily when I have been able to get out, staying dry has been the hardest part and the fish have come pretty easy.Capt. Matt Mitchell has been fishing local waters since he moved to Sanibel in 1980.

Plant SmartMadagascar Periwinkleby Gerri ReavesMadagascar periwinkles (Catharanthus roseus) very name advertises that it is not a Florida native, but it sure is popular in South Florida. It is easily cultivated and has been imported as an ornamental to many parts of the world, including Sanibel Island, whose main thoroughfare Periwinkle Way bears its name. This semi-woody year-round bloomer is nothing if not cheerful and easy maintenance. It usually grows to a height of one to two feet, forming a bushy flowerstudded groundcover that also makes a pretty border or hanging plant. Hardy, droughtand salt-resistant, it grows best in full sun but will tolerate some shade. It actually thrives in poor soil, as long as its well-drained. Give it too much moisture and root rot will ensue. The tubular flowers are one to two inches across with five wide petals flaring out from a center of dark pink. The most common flower color is the standard rosy pink, but cultivars come in white and various shades of pink and red. The opposite evergreen leaves are oval or elliptical with pointed tips and a noticeable greenish white central vein. The erect stems exude a milky latex sap if broken. The cylindrical pods of about an inch long occur in pairs and turn from green to brown as they mature. Periwinkle often self-sows, but it can be propagated with seeds or cuttings. This member of the dogbane family is toxic if ingested by people or livestock. However, it has significant medicinal value. The alkaloids in the leaves are used to treat a variety of diseases, including diabetes, malaria and several types of cancer. Sources: Wildflowers of Florida Field Guide by Jaret C.

When you add a donkey who wont shut up, a princess with a deep secret, a bad guy with a short temper and a cast loaded with talent, you have a show that offers a great time for audiences of all ages. I totally loved this show. In a far away kingdom, Shrek (Chuck Caruso) goes on a quest to rescue Princess Fiona (Kate Marshall) from a tower guarded by a fire-breathing dragon. His plan is to deliver Fiona to Lord Farquaad (Jason Loete) in exchange for the deed to his swamp. The show follows the popular animated movie Shrek. I remember taking my then 6-year-old grandson to see the movie. He is now 18. It brought back fond memories and it was delightful watching the lovable ogre with all his friends, foes and fairytale characters prancing about on stage. Caruso makes a great Shrek. He lumbers ogre-like around the stage and really shines when he cuts loose and gets his groove on. Rendell DeBose, is perfectly cast as the sassy donkey with his comical facial expressions and antics. He offered many LOL moments. Marshall is lovely as the princess with a voice to match. Loete, spends his time singing and even dancing on his knees portraying Farquaad with his spindly short legs. Not an easy task, but he is up to the challenge. These four actors are definitely the stars of the production and the supporting cast lives up to their job. They all have great singing voices, and although the songs arent ones you are apt to remember or sing going home, they are pleasant to hear. Its the lyrics that really hit you. Listen close because there are words of wisdom in each one, and they also add greatly to the story line. Stephanie Genovese provides the singing voice for the dragon... and what a voice.

23 ISLAND SUN JULY 19, 2013 Birds Eye ViewChecking N ests In The Red Mangrovesby Mark Bird WestallYears ago when I was monitoring the ospreys on Sanibel, every two to three weeks I would visit every occupied osprey nest on the island and check on the progress the nesting birds were having. Throughout the nesting period, in order to determine exactly how many eggs were laid, the amount of chick mortality that occurred, and eventually banding every surviving fledgling, I had to somehow find a way to get up close to and, eventually at the end of the season, into the nest. Except for banding, it was not absolutely necessary for me to actually get all the way up into the nest, but it was necessary for me to somehow see into the nest. If the nest was on an artificial nesting platform, it was usually relatively easy to get up close to the bottom of the platform with a heavy duty 35-foot extension ladder and use a mirror attached to an extendable pole to look inside the nest. But when it came close to fledging time, I had no choice but to climb all the way up into the nest, removing the chicks one at a time, bringing them to the ground, putting aluminum FWS lockon bands on the chicks, and returning them to their parents. Over the 10-year period of the study, we were able to band around 350 birds. But many nests were out in the mangroves of the refuge and since the ospreys always nest in top of the canopy, that meant that I needed to find a way to get over 40 feet up into the trees every two to three weeks. Also, with such a tall and thick upper canopy, quite often any mature red mangrove with an osprey nest in the top of it had little to no branches strong enough for me to use for climbing until approximately 30 feet up in the air. But luckily for me, the red mangrove already had a built-in human assist climbing mechanism in place! Have you ever noticed the gnarly growths that seem to cover the trunks of the red mangroves while going out to the Red Mangrove Overlook on the Wildlife Drive of the refuge? What those knots actually are is the trees reaction to the production of an indoleacetic acid by a naturally-occurring fungus officially known as Cylindrocarpon didymum. This fungus infects the trunk, branches and prop roots of the red mangrove through lenticels in the bark of the tree as opposed to wounds or insect feeding sites. A lenticel is the part of a tree made up of porous tissue that functions as a pore, providing a pathway for the direct exchange of gases from the inner part of the tree, through the bark (which is otherwise impermeable to gases) and the atmosphere. This break in the bark, however, also creates the perfect environment for the fungus to thrive and grow; thus, an infection can start. When a red mangrove tree becomes infected with the fungus, it eventually develops the knots, otherwise known as a gall. As you may have noticed, the gall can vary in size from less than half an inch and, depending on the size of the tree and its location, can eventually reach almost eight inches in diameter. The gall is typically darkened in color and rough (cracked and/or fissured), especially as it matures. Almost all mangroves on Sanibel are infected with the fungus, but there appears to be little negative impact as a result. The only problem that has been observed has been the predisposition of diseased trees to suffer wind breakage, where infections are abundant and/or severe. But as far as my using the galls to gain access to the upper story of the mangrove forest, I saw their existence as a benefit. Even though the roughened bark would sometimes occasionally break off of the gall, there was a hard, woody foundation underneath and, thus, the perfect foothold was created. And once I made it up into the upper canopy by using the galls as a ladder, then it was usually a fairly simple job to climb the rest of the way up to the nest. People on my canoe tours are sometimes impressed that I was able to climb all the way up into the top of the trees, but actually it wasnt that big of a deal. The galls make good footholds while climbing the trunks and, once up into the branches, the rest was easy. Mangroves are incredibly strong trees and many times I could climb all the way to the top of the canopy and look across the top of the surrounding forest. As a matter of fact, in the early days of my study, I use to enjoy taking my lunch with me into the mangroves, walking through the interior of the mangrove forest across the tops of the mangrove roots (I always compared it to walking across the top of a jungle gym), climbing the tallest mangrove I could find and nestling myself in a comfortable notch at the top of the tree, and eating my lunch continued on page ??

29 ISLAND SUN JULY 19, 2013 Pacheco Publishes Poetry CollectionNo more poems on death, not one word on growing old Joe Pacheco begins his latest collection, Sanibel Joes Songbook, with a promise to include only the thrill and sweep of the delicious fourth quar ter/ play by delicious play. And with the exception of a section called Leftover Heavy Poems, Pacheco keeps his promise. His journey through the American songscape fashions parodies and poems into social and political commentary on life in past and present America without ever losing his wry humorous octogenarian perspective. His poems bring to mind the velvet fog of Mel Torm and the cool tones of David Amram, writes Dr. Jim Brock of Florida Gulf Coast University. The songs begin on Sanibel, travel back to Puerto Rico and New York City in the 20th century, visit grandchildren in Bethlehem and enter a section called Politically Incorrectus, where the political battles and crises of the post-911 era are captured in parodies and satires which move through the 2012 presidential campaign, fiscal cliff, gun control and immigration controversies. Denis Duhamel of Florida International University says, Sanibel Joes poems are unpretentious and as much fun as the best pop-songs. Theyre catchy and downright infectious. Joe Pacheco is a retired New York City School Superintendent and poetry columnist. His worked is featured regular ly in print and electronic journals and he has performed his poetry numerous times on NPR Morning Edition, Latino USA and WGCU broadcasts. Sanibel Joes Songbook is his third book of poems. Sanibel Joes Songbook is published by Limitless Press and can be purchased online at Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com.

Poets Corner selected by Tanya HochschildPoem Title by Betty A nholtEpiphany following the spring storm Yet again the rains come, out of a pinwheeled sky revolving and dimensional only to dissolve, to disclose a half moon resolutely facing west. Standing patient, unperturbed, pink cumulus gaze down at the unkempt blue clouds hurrying to hang on at the end of a chain of crack-the-whip whose center is far north. Nearly moon-high, a wisp of gilded cirrus glows. On the cusp of darkness birds comb their unsheveled air. The worried blue clouds, permeable, are rended by a birds wing then mended by wind singing a soft allelujah. An egret, neck folded back to fly, glides past so close and so intent on his journey I fall back, give him that uncombed sky. A Sanibel resident for many years, Betty Anholt has always been drawn to the interactions of our environment and history.

rfn BUSINESS REAL ESTATE CLASSIFIEDS VOL. 21, NO. 4 SANIBEL & CAPTIVA ISLANDS, FLORIDA JULY 19, 2013 BSECTION S ea T urtle N ests Relocated On Captiva Beachesby Jeff L ysiakEvery so often, Mother Nature could use a helping hand. This summer, with a massive beach renour ishment project looming on the horizon, the staff and volunteers associated with the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundations Sea Turtle Monitoring Program are providing that assistance. With sea turtle nesting season about to reach its peak, SCCF biologist and program coordinator Amanda Bryant noted during her July 11 inspection of a seven-mile stretch of Captiva beachfront from the Blind Pass inlet to the tip of South Seas Island Resort that time is of the essence right now. According to Bryant, by the middle of August, a longplanned beach renourishment project will begin, replenishing more than 800,000 cubic yards of sand along the Captiva shoreline from Blind Pass to Redfish Pass. The project also includes Sanibel, where an additional 75,000 cubic yards of sand will enhance 6,330 feet of shoreline along the northern coast. But, since this project will commence in the midst of sea turtle nesting season, SCCF and the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) stepped in and took action, issuing a special permit which allows Bryant and other FWC Marine Turtle permit holders to move sea turtle nests that would be impacted by the project. As of July 10, weve moved 21 nest, said Bryant as she began her daily patrol of nesting sites. The first nest she was scheduled to dig Nest #06 had hatched three days earlier. Bryant dug down deep into the egg chamber and inventoried the nest: 90 hatchlings made it out of the nest, five hatchlings did not and one did not make it out of its egg. Overall, Bryant called Nest #06 a big success. Despite all the rain Southwest Florida has seen over the past few weeks, Bryant reported that sea turtle nests are quite resilient and protected from the elements. With Tropical Storm Andrea, we had some high tides for a day or two, and we had a few nests washed over, but the majority of them were OK, said Bryant, who began working at SCCF in 2008. It wasnt like Tropical Storm Debby last year, which hung around for four or five days. Nests cant survive being inundated with water for that amount of time. A little further along the shoreline, Bryant stopped at Nest #04, which sometime earlier in the day perhaps within an hour or two had seen hatchlings emerge. Yay! Some babies hatched! she said enthusiastically, grabbing her camera to take pictures of the trail in the sand left by the newborns. And theyre all going in the right direction! Our volunteers are going to be so happy to hear about this! Shortly after 8 a.m., Bryant steered SCCFs four-wheel drive Kubota across the sand at South Seas Island Resort when she spotted something unusual: a set of crawl marks with an entry and exit point at the waters edge but where was her nesting spot? The only available space was a small gap between two stacks of lounge chairs nestled up against the dunes, quite possibly the worst place a loggerhead couldve chosen to lay her eggs. Sure enough, thats where she nested. Its critical that we move them as quickly as possible, said Bryant, who trained for two years with the FWC to obtain a special FWC permit to relocate sea turtle nests. The eggs have to stay moist, they shouldnt be exposed to too much air or too much heat from the sun and you dont want to rotate them from the way you found them in their original nest. Orientation is very important in their development. One by one, Bryant removed the eggs all 165 of them, a very large clutch from the nest at South Seas Island Resort and placed them into a bucket. The soft, leathery, ping-pong ball-sized spheres were then transported to another section of Captiva beachfront one which will not be affected by the renourishment project where Bryant quickly dug a new egg chamber. The goal is to mimic what the mother turtle did with the original nest to be about the same shape and size of the original egg chamber, said Bryant. Whether theyre laying 50 eggs or 150 eggs, sea turtles just seem to know what theyre doing. As Bryant dug the new nest, a small crowd of curious onlookers surrounded the spot. Placing each egg carefully inside the chamber, Bryant shared some of her knowledge with the passersby, hoping that they, too, will become interested in learning more about sea turtles and ongoing efforts to protect the species. And, with the new nest staked, marked and numbered, thanks to Bryant and her team of volunteers, as many as 165 hatchlings may emerge on Captivas beachfront in about two months. Mother Nature couldnt have done it better herself. Bryant carefully removes and counts each of the newlylaid loggerhead eggs Bryant inventories Captiva nest #06, which successfully hatched 90 sea turtles Captiva resident Dick Pyle stopped by to see what Amanda Bryant was up to photos by Jeff Lysiak A small crowd gathers around SCCF biologist and sea turtle program coordinator Amanda Bryant as she prepares to place 165 newly-laid loggerhead eggs in a relocated nest along Captivas beachfront last week

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 gives 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: particularly 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. photo by Dave Meardon

Markham has served as the founding chairwoman of the Board of Directors and during her seven-year tenure, hundreds of at-risk girls have overcome difficult circumstances, resulting in emotional healing and academic enhancement. One of Markhams most notable accomplishments was her vision for a state of the art educational facility for the PACE Lee girls. Under her direction, more than $700,000 has been raised towards the $1.3 million dollar goal from the local community towards the capital campaign. Two signature community events were also created: Love that Dress! and The Grande Dames Tea. As Stilwell prepares to lead the PACE Lee Board of Directors, she reflects on the legacy Markham has made on this young agency. She has been the most remarkable leader. Gail is responsible for bringing us to the level we are at today. Her commitment and dedication to this [PACE] center is beyond outstanding. Thank you, Gail, said Stilwell, who began her term on July 1, along with newly appointed Executive Director, Meg M. Geltner. This leadership transition at PACE Lee will allow the center to continue building on the foundation that Gail was instrumental in creating said President and CEO of PACE Center For Girls, Inc.

6B ISLAND SUN JULY 19, 2013Biking On SanibelFrank and Denise Coyne are back again from Dublin, Ireland to see if they can match their last years biking record. Hail, rain or snow, they decided to take to biking once again this year. The Coynes said they had thought of spending more time at the beach and at the pool, but after their first morning biking from East Rocks to the Lighthouse Caf, biking fever got to them and they have been biking ever since. Hail or snow may not happen on Sanibel, but rain certainly does. Floridians call it liquid sunshine, but after being caught out in the Florida rains on the bikes, they have another name for it: torrential downpour. The couple have been biking almost 10 weeks on gearless hire-bikes and have 2,977 miles on the odometer, two punctures and one breakdown. Last year, they did 3,373 miles and are now trying to match or break this record. To date, since they started biking on Sanibel 11 years ago, (which is the equivalent of 28 months), they have done 27,186 miles. They would like to get to 30,000 miles, but looking at their record to date, they will definitely have to come back next year. Frank and Denise Coyne Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellIts not a rarity at Rotary to have guests from overseas traveling to our islands from distant shores as far away as Africa and Asia. But this week our meeting visitors were from just across the causeway. Islanders often refer to any location across the causeway as overseas. The club welcomed McKenzie Millis and Dr. Carol Clark, members of the Shell Point staff to speak to us regarding our neighboring senior-retirement-living community on the Fort Myers mainland (sometimes referred to as the Sanibel annex). McKenzie has been with Shell Point since 2005 and has had experience serving the Shell Point community members in a variety of ways. She is currently an Assistant Living Healthcare Marketing Specialist for Shell Points three assisted living facilities: Kings Crown, The Arbor and the brand new The Springs. As many of us know, the Shell Point community provides an array of living arrangements for senior living; as they like to say, Lifestyle with lifecare. Whether you are living independently in one of the five resident neighborhoods, need assistant living services or skilled nursing care, you will receive that care as a member of the Shell Point community. Shell Point has 950 employees serving 2,300 residents and an amazing amount of activities available within the community golf, tennis, boating, exercise classes, lecture and enrichment series, entertainment and the list goes on and on. Just think of what Sanibel has to offer, take out the beaches, shrink down the island and you have Shell Point. The staff there is always planning ahead, just as they think you should be, looking at the reality of what their needs are or will be and how to provide services that will deliver the best quality of life for Shell Pointers in the future. They have adjusted their life-care options over time and have a menu of five life-care contracts: Plan A Standard life-care contract, NEW a 75 percent or 90 percent refundable option on Plan A; Plan B Modified life-care, reduction rate applied to Plan A only providing access to skilled nursing care with additional charges; Plan C 100 percent refund of entrance fee upon death or contract cancellation. This contract does not include assisted living or skilled nursing. To be fair, check these facts out on your own these contracts are more detailed then stated in this article. Shell Point just recently opened a new non-contract assisted living residence building, The Springs at Shell Point, right on Summerlin. This is something very new for Shell Point no contract is required and monthto-month rates apply. The Springs is designed for the resident whose quality of life would be improved by support services. Residents at The Springs may enjoy the enrichment activities of the Shell Point community. McKenzie also spoke of a new phase of development that is on the drawing board at Shell Point. This community will be located central to the Shell Point Golf Course. This development will comprise of single-family houses and villa-type properties. Construction will start soon. Any questions, call McKenzie at Shell Point. On to Dr. Carol Clark, an advanced registered nurse practitioner who holds a doctorate degree in education. Dr. Clark is manager of the J. Howard Wood Medical Center at Shell Point. The J.

From time to time, a client will visit with me convinced that he or she has protected their assets from the claims of creditors by placing all of their assets and properties in a joint tenancy known as Tenants By The Entireties. This is a popular but limited form of asset protection that has its benefits and traps. First, lets review the three differ ent forms of joint ownership. They are Tenants In Common (TIC), Joint Tenants With Rights Of Survivorship (JWROS) and, as mentioned above, Tenancy By The Entireties (TBE). Tenants In Common is an undivided interest of joint ownership. This means that each party has the right to alienate, or transfer the ownership of, her ownership interest. This can be done by deed, will, or other conveyance. When one joint owner dies, their interest is subject to probate. In contrast, owning assets or property jointly with rights of survivorship avoids the probate process, but is similar to TIC in that either party can individually alienate or transfer his interest. When this happens, the asset is owned as TIC. Individuals owning assets or property as tenants by the entireties cannot alienate or transfer without the consent and signature of the other. Now that you understand the differ ent forms of joint ownership, lets review the benefits of TBE. Holding assets as TBE has certain advantages for married couples. When one spouse dies, the sur viving spouse owns all the assets without the need for probate. Creditors of only one spouse cannot reach the assets, as both husband and wife must be liable for a creditor to successfully attack the assets. But there are traps for the unwary when relying on TBE for asset protection purposes. Allow me to present to you the top five with a special thank you to my colleague attorney Phillip B. Rarick in Miami Florida for his help in putting these together: 1. You must be married. TBE is only available to those in a legally recognized marriage. In Florida, this rules out same sex unions as well as common law mar riages. Even if a couple who is not legally married titles assets or property as tenants by the entireties, they will not be afforded the asset protections enumerated under the law. 2. Assets held jointly before marriage do not automatically become TBE upon becoming married. The assets must be re-titled from one of the spouses to them jointly as tenants by the entireties after the marriage to achieve TBE status. 3. TBE assets can be attacked when both spouses are liable. If a creditor has a judgment against both spouses, then the creditor can reach TBE assets. This can happen when one spouse causes a ter rible car accident when both spouses own the car involved in the accident. Further, if one spouse dies or the marriage ends in the middle of a creditor problem, the creditor will be able to attack the TBE property. 4. The account must be created properly or the protection is lost. When one spouse owns a bank or brokerage account, for example, and simply adds the other spouses name as TBE, it will not be considered TBE property. There is a rule that TBE assets and property must be created with four unities those of time, title, interest and possession. Therefore, the proper way to create a TBE account that is currently owned by only one spouse is to close the account and open a new account in both spouses names as TBE. 5. Joint with Rights of Survivorship is not TBE. While Florida law presumes TBE ownership between a husband and wife when opening a bank account, if the bank officer checked a JWROS box on the account application, then that will trump the TBE presumption and protections. Therefore, bank and brokerage signature cards should always be checked to assure TBE ownership and protections. There are additional issues surrounding TBE property, particularly in second marriage situations where there is a nuptial agreement that defines non-marital property that should not be subject to the other spouse in a divorce proceeding. Further, if your estate plan contemplates assets in one spouses name or the others (including ownership in a revocable trust), then it is important to consider the estate planning ramifications of any transfer of ownership. As one can readily see, there are many considerations when opening up bank and brokerage accounts or titling real estate into joint name, and they are not to be taken lightly. Craig R. Hersch.

ISLAND SUN JULY 19, 201312B Pressure Building to Fire Twins Manager Ron Gardenhireby Ed FrankWill Minnesota Twins Manager Ron Gardner still have his job when the Twins assemble here next February? With the Twins headed for their third straight season losing more than 90 games, the pressure is building for the Twins to part ways with Gardenhire. This past week, longtime columnist Patrick Reusse of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune called for his ouster, writing that Gardenhire isnt providing improvement, hope, direction and leadership. He said it would be kinder to let Gardenhire go now rather than letting him oversee another death march before his contract expires at the end of this season. And Phil Rogers, the baseball writer for the Chicago Tribune was critical of Gardenhire and the Twins front office for giving up on Carlos Gomez who is having an All-Star year with the Milwaukee Brewers who at weeks end was batting .302 and on pace for 25 home runs and 37 stolen bases. Gardenhire is in his 12th year as Twins manager and his teams had won six American League Central Division titles in the first nine years. But like the 2011 and 2012 seasons, this year has been another disaster. The week began with the Twins at 39-53, 12 games behind first-place Detroit after losing 12 of the last 15 games. The lack of offense and effective pitching is the root cause of the teams problems. Of the 15 teams in the American League, Minnesota entered last weekend ranked 14th in home runs, stolen bases and sacrifice hits. As to pitching, the Twins were dead last in the AL in strikeouts and 14th in ERAs. Twins General Manager Terry Ryan was quick to defend his manager saying reports that Gardenhire is on his way out are inaccurate. Theres no validity to it, he said. He and I are the leadership of this organization, and we take accountability. He is basically in the clubhouse and in the dugout, and Im in charge of the whole operation, and we both are feeling like were letting the people down, Ryan said. After the 2012 disappointing season, Ryan fired several of Gardenhires coaches and refused to give his manager a contract extension. Those actions by Ryan were interpreted by many as a do or die 2013 ultimatum to Gardenhire. But in fairness to Gardenhire, its Ryan who provides the players for Gardenhire to manage. As bad as the season has been for the Twins, they entered the All-Star break on a positive note having won two of three games from the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium. It was the first time since 2001 that the Twins had won a series from the Yankees in New York. Twins Top Two Prospects Appear in Futures Game As disappointing as the last three seasons have been for the Twins, they do have two of the most prized prospects in baseball Miguel Sano and Bryon Buxton. Both were selected for last weeks XM AllStar Futures Game and nearly every scout agreed they were the two best players in the contest. Sano is ranked as the No. 6 prospect in baseball and Buxton is No. 16. They are ranked 1-2 in the Twins organization. The 20-year-old Sano was recently promoted to Double A New Britain after a spectacular first-half season with the Fort Myers Miracle where he hit .330 with 16 homers and 48 RBIs in 56 games. He has found the going a bit tough at the higher level where he is batting in the low .200s. But he is still hitting for power and is expected to raise that average once he becomes accustomed to tougher pitching. Buxton, just 19, was the second overall pick in the 2012 Major League Draft. He also was recently moved up from Low A Cedar Rapids to Advanced A Fort Myers and has continued his torrid hitting here. The Twins are pinning their future on these two youngsters. They sure need them. Ron Gardenhire From page 2BPACE Centerand become productive members of our community. Markham has served as the founding chairwoman of the board of directors and during her seven-year tenure, hundreds of at-risk girls have overcome difficult circumstances, resulting in emotional healing and academic enhancement. One of Markhams most notable accomplishments was her vision for a state of the art educational facility for the PACE Lee girls. Under her direction, more than $700,000 has been raised towards the $1.3 million dollar goal from the local community towards the capital campaign. Two signature community events were also created: Love that Dress! and The Grande Dames Tea. As Stilwell prepares to lead the PACE Lee Board of Directors, she reflects on the legacy Markham has made on this young agency. She has been the most remarkable leader. Gail is responsible for bringing us to the level we are at today. Her commitment and dedication to this [PACE] center is beyond outstanding. Thank you, Gail, said Stilwell, who began her term on July 1, along with newly appointed Executive Director, Meg M. Geltner.

Myers Beach DESIGNER CONDO FURNITURE PACKAGE $6299PACKAGE DETAILS: INTEREST-FREE FINANCING INTEREST-FREE FINANCING San Cap Trust Companys Dorsey Encourages Investors To Have The Courage To Do NothingThe challenge of investing for the long haul in a myopic and hyperactive world that mistakes activity for intelligence is often a difficult one. Over the past month or so, interest rates shot up, equities fell and then recovered, and bonds were taken to the woodshed. These events caused more than a small amount of hyperventilating in the financial media, but should not affect how to manage money, according to The Sanibel Captiva Trust Companys Director of Research Pat Dorsey, CFA, who cites five reasons why: 1. Interest rates are still extremely low by historical standards, and nowhere near the tight levels that would crimp economic growth. Investment-grade companies can borrow money at well below 4 percent, creditworthy homebuyers can borrow for thirty years at 4.5 percent, and our government can borrow money for ten years at 2.5 percent. 2. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke has been exceedingly clear that the pace of the Feds bond buying (which has helped to keep interest rates low) would slow as economic growth improved, and as unemployment declined. Both of these events are coming to pass, so the Fed is simply doing what it said it would. Anyone who is surprised by the Feds recent statements has been either living under a rock for the past few years, or is afflicted with chronic self-delusion. 3. Rates are heading up because the economy is improving. A better economy is good for corporate earnings, which is good for equities. Any equity investor should prefer modestly higher rates and a modestly growing economy over zero interest rates and zero economic growth. 4. Falling equity prices and higher interest rates do not affect the dividend-paying ability of 95 percent of the companies we own for clients (for some such as Paychex, CME and Berkshire Hathaway, higher short-term interest rates are actually a material positive.) If we owned companies with lots of short-term debt that would face higher financing costs, we would be worried. But we dont. 5. Since we have long believed that interest rates had to rise at some point, barring a Japan-style deflation scenario, we have spent the past year selling utilities, high-yield bonds, most REITs, some intermediate bonds, and just every other interest-rate sensitive asset we could find. This was not genius just common sense. Generally speaking, we have found that having courage to do nothing when emotions run high and market volatility spikes is the wiser choice than trying to game the stock markets unpredictable gyrations. Those who shared that courage during the 2007-09 credit crunch have enjoyed far superior returns relative to those who gave in to fear, and sold out when equity prices were depressed, Dorsey said. As the equity market adjusts to the prospect of a more normal interest-rate environment, it would not be at all surprising to see more market volatility along the lines of the past few weeks. This does not concern us, and it should not concern you, because equity prices are much like the weather impossible to predict on a day-to-day basis, but much easier to forecast longer term. Much like the weather, I have no idea what the market will do over the coming weeks or months. But I do know that, over time, the price of a share of common stock tends to track the fundamental prospects of the underlying business. As long as that business is financially sound, competitively advantaged, and managed by decent capital allocators, the courage to do nothing is likely to be the best course of action, Dorsey said.

So, what are Other Structures? They can be a variety of structures; like a detached garage, perimeter fencing, a shed, a guest house or a detached pool. The common denominator here is the structures are not attached to the house and are an additional coverage. Commercial buildings also sometimes offer this coverage. But, you say, you dont have any of these items and yet your policy still is showing Other Structures. Many insur ance companies do not allow removing this coverage. Some homeowners policies, however, will allow this line item to be removed or at least reduced, so be sure your agent knows your home and has adequately represented it on your homeowners policy. Coverage rules change on your flood policy. It is good to know that it covers only the house including the detached garage in its $250,000 limit of coverage. To insure any Other Structures, separate policies must be written and separate deductibles apply to each policy as well as to the personal property coverage.

Therefore, it is no surprise that their parents stress and the stress of others with whom they are in contact. Just as stress in adults originates from many different sources, the same is true for children. Babies are alert and sensitive to the world, even in the womb before birth. The messages they receive from those around them shape their emotions and beliefs. Studies suggest that babies who are separated from their mothers too soon after birth(even when there is emotional problems later on. A significant bond between mother and infant is essential. Wounds that dont heal from infancy and childhood, such as episodes of isolation, abuse and abandonment, whether children are conscious of them or not, go with them into adulthood. These wounds dont heal, but persist. During my years as a teacher, guidmany children who suffered from stress due to various traumatic emotional situations, such as divorce, addiction, depression, anxiety and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Negative programming is another issue children face. Often it is not maliciously intended, for example, Jon, you are so bad for leaving your dirty clothes on the floor. Mary, how could you be so stupid? Negative programming, from an adult thrust onto equate, unworthy, or bad. These feelings become influential components that lessen self-esteem. Because of the intense effects that traumatic emotional issues and negative programming have on children, they are capable of carrying these wounds into adulthood. Very often they which unfortunately is so prevalent in our society. Our society needs to teach children to focus on the positive rather than the we focus our energy on expands. This is true at any age. to be negative when we realize the damage that focusing on the negative can do. Teach children to focus on their strengths rather than their non-strengths and to reaching out to our children, encourage them to share their feelings, especially if share how their day in school went, and always help them to see the positive. Art therapy, self-expression through writing, drawing, painting or sculpting is a beautiful way to encourage expression of emotions. With the prevalence of dysfunction in many families, children need guidance counselors who can spend quality time with them encouraging expression of their feelings and emotions. Children need to be taught early on how to increase self-awareness and self-esteem, as well as learn methods to handle stress effectively. To advertise in the Island Sun Call 395-1213

Edison State College Building To Be RenamedFollowing a licensing agreement between Edison State College and Presidio, Inc., Building G on the Edison State College Lee Campus will be renamed The Presidio Information Technology Center. The new name, effective July 1, will remain in existence for at least five years in exchange for a $500,000 cost reduction for a new Voiceover Internet Protocol (VOIP) phone system, its software and hardware, and its installation and implementation at all three Edison State College campuses, as well as its center in LaBelle. Its a win-win when we can reduce the amount of money we have to spend, said Dr. Jeff Stewart, vice president, Research, Technology, and Accountability. The new phone system will replace the antiquated system we have now. Instead of using a regular phone system, it will run over the colleges internet network and provide a backup to the incoming calls. It will have caller ID and a missed call log, and can convert voicemail messages to email. It will be a more efficient system for our students, faculty, and staff. Installation will be complete in spring 2014. A ribbon cutting to celebrate the new name will be planned at the Lee Campus in the fall. Barrier Island Title Services, Inc.

She has missed a lot of school and she seems to be confused by arithmetic. I really dont know what she is supposed to know and some of the words they use now in arithmetic class are confusing. Please tell me what she should know by now. Luanne M., Fort Myers Luanne, You deserve a lot of credit for wanting to help your granddaughter improve her skills and catch up in math. Im sure that you both are experiencing a great deal of adjustment as you learn to live together full time. Perhaps adding in a routine of homework now in the summer will help set up a good homework schedule when she returns to school in the fall. Here is a general overview of what a first grader should know based on common standards. The categories for math skills at the first grade level include Mathematical Processes, Number and Operations, Algebra, Geometry and Measurement, Data Analysis, Statistics and Probability. This sounds intimidating, but as you look at the list below you will see how the skills and categories work together. This list is far from complete, but it includes many basic skills that when mastered will allow your granddaughter to learn new math skills more easily when she enters second grade. Grade 1 Overview and subtraction. between addition and subtraction. count forward and backward by one beginning with any number less than bers to 50. interpret and solve simple open addition sentences. names, similarities and differences identify whole number on a number line). scale.

18B ISLAND SUN JULY 19, 2013 Indispensable Advice from Dr. Dave Get your copy of Dr. Daves Book at Sanibel Island Books and Gifts, 1571 Periwinkle Way 472-5223 Mom A nd Me by L izzie and PryceLizzie and Pryce answer your questions and give advice about aging concerns from a two-generational perspective. A mother and daughter team, Lizzie is a retired RN and health educator, and Pryce is a licensed psychotherapist in private practice who specializes in the care of elders and people with chronic illnesses. Dear Mom & Me, Forty years ago, my husband and I adopted a lovely baby boy. We cherished this baby and he grew up to be a lovely young man. He became engaged to a very nice young woman and we advised him to tell her that he had been adopted. She absolutely insisted that before she would marry him she had to know his birth mother and parentage. It has been a disaster beyond our belief and three families have been torn apart because of this. During this process, I had a nervous breakdown and the birth mother and the biological father had to admit to their families their past indiscretion. Our sons girlfriend just continued with her research. We were estranged from our son and his wife because of this for over 10 years, but we have now reconciled. We enjoy the grandchildren, but our relationship will never be what it could have been without all of the chaos. Please tell people to be very careful about what they feel they must do and consider the consequences. Brenda Dear Brenda, I am very sorry to hear of your ordeal. I also would have a difficult time having a trusting, loving relationship with an individual so intent on a mission without regard for the consequences of others. Particularly since other options, specifically genetic counseling, is available. However, the longer we hold on to hurts of the past, the longer the hurts continue to cause pain. It sounds like you have been able to put some of the past in the past and enjoy a relationship with your grandchildren and your son. The ending advice in your letter is very good. Each and every one of us should be careful about what we ask of another person; and each and every one of us should be firm about our boundaries, about what we are willing and unwilling to do for others. Pryce Dear Brenda, Few people know their genetic background and most of us are not interested in knowing. Many of us would fail as perfection is hard to come by and no one can predict what the gene pool will produce. In times past, we accepted our own and adopted babies and just did our best. Now it seems everything has to be researched and analyzed. It is very sad that with the best of intentions you have had this disruption in family unity.

S hell Point A dult D ay Health Program Caring for a loved one can be very rewarding, but finding time each week to run errands or go shopping may be a challenge. At Shell Point, the Hope Care Center an adult day health care program coordinated by Hope HealthCare Services is the ideal solution for caregivers who could benefit from having a place to take their loved one for a few hours of activity and socialization during the week. The program offers care to individuals of all ability levels, including those with speech impairment, limited mobility, memory deficiency, incontinence, and other unique needs. Hopes team of professionals lead therapeutic social and health activities, including light exercise sessions for strength and balance, games, gardening, art, music, pet therapy, and rest periods. Nutritious meals and snacks are also available. Individual care programs are based on each persons interests, hobbies and career history, so that daily activities can be customized, said Sue Stilson, Director of Hopes Adult Day Health Program. Hope opened the program at Shell Point last year, and it steadily gained popularity among independent living caregivers in the community. Barbara Cox, who moved to Shell Point with her husband Bill in 2002, has been his caregiver since 2007. She takes advantage of the program by bringing Bill to the Center when she has appointments with her physician or needs to go grocery shopping. I appreciate the flexibility, she said, adding that Bill looks forward to seeing the others in the group. Likewise, Bonnie and Glen Aspinwall, Shell Point residents since 2009, have the highest praise for the program. They affectionately call it The Club because of the camaraderie that develops among the participants. Having The Club is a marvelous benefit, said Bonnie, who brings Glen each week. I now have some time to take care of errands or call my sister, she said, before quickly pointing out another important aspect of the program: It gives him some independence from me! The Hope Care Center at Shell Point operates Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. near the rear entrance to The Pavilion at Shell Point. Half days of care are $45, and a full day is $80. Hourly plans are also available. A set schedule is not required, but participants must be pre-registered. For more information, call 855454-3102 or visit www.HopeHCS. org/AdultDayHealth. Hope HealthCare Services offers similar services on Winkler Avenue in Fort Myers and on Livingston Road in Naples.

Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAMLFeel a cold or flu coming on? Have sore or achy joints? Taking on the energies of others? Feel you have taken on too much and are ready to explode? Feel emotionally un-nourished? In transition between work or moving or just dealing with family? If any of these apply, than it is time to open the meridians, throw the toxins out of your system and pull in fresh energy to all your joints! Of course you are thinking Get real, what exercise can accomplish this? The exercise is Connecting Heaven and Earth. It is one of Donna Edens favorites, since it is so powerful. By encouraging our buddy Triple Warmer (remember that warrior of our body who protects our habit fields for survival and monitors our flight/fight/freeze response) to act as a Radiant Circuit (that energy system that is our joy-juice), we are literally pulling energy in from above through our head (Heaven) and from below through our feet at Kidney 1 meridian (Earth). After we pull the energy to us, our joints are replenished helping to prevent arthritis; boosts the immune system by stretching the torso and activating the Spleen meridian; and stimulates the removal of all that stale etheric sludge in our systems. Although in Energy Medicine, Donna comments she thought she created the exercise, her research disclosed this exercise or variations of it have existed for centuries in other countries including Egypt, China and India (page 266). So, doing this exercise releases all those excessive accumulated energies seeking to be expelled and makes space for new fresh subtle energy to enter so you can smile! The technique for Connecting Heaven and Earth follows: Step 1. Rub your hands together, shake them off and place them on thighs with fingers spread. Step 2. While inhaling through the nose, move your hands in a circle out from your sides and up over your head, bringing them to a prayer position in front of your heart. Exhale through the mouth. Step 3. While inhaling through the nose, stretch one hand up over your head with wrist bent so the palm is facing to the sky and stretch the other hand downward with wrist bent so the palm is facing the earth. Push with both palms, creating a strong stretch along the side while looking up at the heavens. Hold your breath during this stretch. When ready to release the breath, exhale through the mouth and return your hands to prayer position. Step 4. Switch arms and repeat with this side. After this set, do two or more sets. Step 5. Bend at the waist to fold toward the floor, with bent knees if necessary, and hang there for two breaths. Step 6. Slowly bring your body upright while you roll the energy to you with your hands from the feet to the head. I like to sprinkle that new fresh energy over my head and place my renewed energized hands wherever I feel I need a boost, perhaps my back or shoulder. Smile, do a little wiggle and start the day. Have fun with your energy! Next weeks topic is Clear Physical Sludge Reset Ileocecal/Houston Valves. If you have a questions for Karen, email her at ksemmelmanenergy@ gmail.com.

deaRPharmacistMethylation Problems Lead To 100s Of Diseasesby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: I met you at a book signing and you said something that stuck. You told me that if I have allergies, fatigue and multiple chemical sensitivities that I may have a methylation difficulty. You also told me not to take Green Coffee Bean extract. Can you please tell me more? SJ, Vail, Colorado Methylation its a big word that you probably dont think applies to you, however, read on because knowing about methylation could improve or save your life. Just look at the list of people who might have a methylation problem: Children with autism, anyone with a seizure disorder, neurological condition, Alzheimers disease, cancer, severe Lyme disease, chronic infections, diabetes, allergies, fertility issues, miscarriages, cardiovascular disease, chronic fatigue, anxiety or any psychiatric illness. Thats the short list. Oh, and if you are extremely sensitive to medicine or to nitrous gas (given by the dentist), you might have a methylation problem, too. You see, as humans, we all have an enzymatic pathway going on in our body at all times called methylation. It has numerous life-sustaining functions. One of its primary purposes is to convert folate from your meals into glutathione, a potent antioxidant which neutralizes poisons. A problem any where along this metabolic pathway spells illness. My concern is that your symptoms are being heavily medicated when its just a problem of methylation that can be addressed by a physician in-the-know. Methylation snps (pronounced snips) are genetic problems, but its not always a genetic problem. About 45 percent of people have a genetic issue, but blockages in this pathway can happen if you take certain medications or have certain nutrient deficiencies. Green coffee bean extract is incredibly high in catechols, and those block methylation! Same deal with potatoes (regular or sweet), tea and coffee. Testing for methylation is often covered by insurance. Because people with a methylation difficulty have trouble eliminating poisons, they build up in the body and thats what causes all the health concerns. Opening up the road block helps clear your body of poisons and that should reduce symptoms. If you cant methylate properly, you cannot produce CoQ10, carnitine, creatine or ATP (energy). You will also have nerve pain. Thats because the methylation process helps make the protective wrapping around your nerves. Some medications are what I call drug muggers of nutrients which are needed for the methylation process. Among them are methotrexate, metformin, antacids, acid blockers, estrogen-containing drugs and nitrous oxide. Drinking alcohol will pretty much shut down your methylation. Im out of space here, so if youd like more information about testing and supportive supplements, sign up for my free newsletter and Ill send you details. By the way, some doctors recommend high dose folic acid and vitamin B12, but this is not always helpful and can, in fact, be harmful. Details will be sent via my newsletter and if youve signed up for it in the past, you dont need to do so again. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition. Suzy Cohen is the author of The 24-Hour Pharmacist and is a registered pharmacist. To contact her, visit www. dearpharmacist.com. From page 6BRotary Happeningsat Shell Point. Dr. Clarks topic for the morning focused on taking a holistic approach to caregiving. Medicines, vitamins, minerals and herbs... oh my! What to take, what not to take, when to take it, when not to take it, how much to take? Each answer is unique to the individual. Good medical testing is important and then reading your own body as to the response to medications and supplements you are taking is extremely important. This is complicated; no wonder you need a doctorate to explain this stuff. Be careful with your medications and dont overmedicate. Carol spoke a great deal about vitamins and their importance for healthy body function and tissue repair. She went through most of the vitamins and minerals and what problems deficiency can cause. She stated, Of course, healthy eating and a good exercise routine is the frontline approach to good health, but aging sometime interferes with both so then what? If you are having concerns, talk to your health care professionals. Vitamins can supplement deficiencies in your body, but again be careful, check for reactions with your medications. Live right, eat right, live well it all helps, but take your vitamins, too. Ben Franklin once said, An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Small, non-electrical equipment such as wheelchairs, walkers or canes are available for temporary loan on a first come, first serve basis. For many years, the Sanibel Fire and Rescue District has graciously accepted and stored equipment returns, keeping them until FISH volunteers could clean and transfer them to their City Hall pickup location. When the storage space became unavailable a few months ago, the City of Sanibel, Sanibel Fire and FISH worked together to help permit, install and anchor a new equipment storage shed on the Sanibel Fire property. Those needing medical equipment should call the FISH answering service at 4720404. An equipment volunteer will return your call, confirm your request and arrange to meet at City Hall, where the FISH equipment check out room is located. In certain instances, a FISH volunteer may be able to deliver the requested equipment.

There are not very many bells and whistles in here, said Zimomra in describing the preliminary budget package prepared for the city council, which were distributed late last week. Mayor Kevin Ruane, who said that he had already put in at least 25 hours of work on the budget, recommended working with city staff at finding an additional $1.3 million required to fund the police pension fund in the citys coffers. He also suggested the staff-recommended rollback millage rate of 2.0861, down slightly from last years rate of 2.1 mills.continued on page 6

ISLAND SUN JULY 19, 20132 Does Anyone Remember This Building?The folks at the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village are hoping someone will recognize this forgotten building so it can take its place in history. Long-time Sanibel vacationer and visitor to the museum Susan Fish of Gainesville brought in these two photographs hoping to find answers to her questions: what was this building, who owned it, and exactly where was it? She knows the building which has the numbers 1881 on the front was on Periwinkle Way, but is not sure 1881 refers to an address. Fish and her family stopped there every year, fascinated by the structure. Their research yielded nothing. If anyone has information on the building, please contact museum manager Emilie Alfino at the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village by calling 472-4648, Wednesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., or email info@sanibelmuseum.org. Sanibel Historical Village Closing For Season August 3The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village will close after Saturday, August 3 for the remainder of the summer and into early fall. The museum will re-open on Wednesday, November 6 and resume a Wednesday through Saturday schedule from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. According to museum manager Emilie Alfino, the traditional three months when the museum is closed to the public affords staff an opportunity to make any needed repairs, repaint and spruce up the grounds. Museum volunteers also use the break to prepare next seasons exhibits and plan special events. Administrative staff members are busy updating databases, refining procedures, marketing and improving existing exhibits. Hurricane shutters go up on all the windows until the week before re-opening. The village may be quiet, but we keep working behind the scenes to improve the museum and to prepare for next season, said Alfino. I already have more goals for the summer than I can probably fulfill, but every goal is a labor of love and makes the village a more enriching, educational and fun experience for our visitors. Next seasons visitors to the village can look forward to a continuing array of exhibits in each of the seven historic buildings and special docent-led tours of the village at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. In addition, Twilight Talks, which were so popular in the past, are being planned. Meanwhile, work continues on Shore Haven and its Caretakers Cottage. The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village is currently open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and is located at 950 Dunlop Road (next to BIG ARTS). There is handicap access to all buildings. Admission is $5 for adults 18 and over. Members and children under 18 are free. For more information, call 472-4648 during business hours.

Ryan Cunningham, representative for Kittleson & Associates, identified the minimum standards for crosswalk safety, according to Florida Statutes, Chapter 316, along with the responsibilities of motorists, pedestrians and cyclists at crosswalks. The three intersections being investigated by the city included: Queen and Lazy Flamingo) Jerrys Market) Lily & Co. Jewelry Gallery) According to Cunningham, their goal was to recommend a marked crosswalk at all stop-controlled intersection approaches and uncontrolled intersection approaches should consider marked crosswalks and additional conditions (including illumination and treatments such as Rapid Rectangular Flashing Beacons). After presenting several design options at each location, a preferred alternative at each crossing was submitted to the council for their consideration. But before they took a vote on the matter, Mayor Kevin Ruane asked for public input on the subject. Resident Dick Muench said that he supported the design alternative submitted for the Periwinkle Way/Bailey Road intersection, however, he called the proposed 10-foot bike path extension overkill, suggesting a narrower path could be used. Tom Sharbaugh, representing the Sanibel Bicycle Club, praised all three crosswalk designs, noting that they will improve the safety of the shared use paths. He suggested that the city consider adding lighting and reflectors for riders who use the crosswalks at night. Its a lot safer and it makes a lot of sense, so I would be in favor of the designs the city staff are recommending, said councilman Marty Harrity. Ruane, however, asked for some additional engineer ing details as well as some further details about the pros and cons of each proposed design submitted, including an explanation about exactly how much safer each crossing will become. Mick Denham requested information about cost estimates for this project, in addition to whether it could be completed before the start of season. According to Keith Williams, Public Works Director, the city could put a request for bids if the council approves the project at its next meeting, on August 6. Resident Claudia Burns, speaking about the Periwinkle/Casa Ybel crossing, suggested that it would be safer and more efficient to have pedestrians and bicyclists cross Periwinkle from the east corner of Casa Ybel, rather than the west corner as proposed by the staff-approved design. Fellow islander Karen Storjohann added that trees may interfere with the line of sight for oncoming motorists along Periwinkle Way. Dan Schuyler, co-owner of Lily & Co. Jewelry Gallery, gave his approval for the city-designed shortterm site plan, but suggested designing a landing area for pedestrians and bicyclists on the north corner of Island Inn Road, where he said would be the busiest spot for both foot and bike traffic. Council agreed to bring back additional information at their next meeting related to the crosswalk designs. In other business. council voted 4-0 with Harrity recusing himself in favor of approving Resolution 13-060, establishing a policy to review city building and planning fees. A minor hiccup occurred when Denham balked at setting the application deadline at June 5, 2013, which could open the door to a number of applicants applying for a return of their fees. I dont see the need to backtrack the fees to June 5th, said Denham, who called the policy unfair. After further discussion, council decided to amend the resolution to apply to applications filed on or after June 5, 2013 through December 31, 2013.

The increased millage amounted to approximately $400,000 in reserves. Lets be cautious right now, added Jennings. Ruane, a veteran of seven city budgets, said that he was very comfortable with the staffs recommendation. Marty Harrity backed the Mayor, adding, As time goes on, were gonna find stuff here and move stuff there, so things are gonna change with this. Jennings agreed to vote with his fellow councilman, but noted, I like the idea of having a little more leeway. The council voted 5-0 in favor of approving the tentative millage rate, as well as a tentative budget of $8,580,499. This is a very fiscally responsible council one who watches its nickels and dimes very well, added Harrity. The council will conduct the first budget public hear ing on Saturday, September 7 at 9 a.m., during which they will discuss and adopt the tentative millage rate and FY2014 budget. The second and final budget hearing will be held on Tuesday, September 17 at 5:01 p.m.

During the year many Art League members participate in workshops to learn new techniques and refine their skills. Several members teach painting and drawing locally to both adults and children who are at all levels of achievement. Some of the members joined the Art League as beginners because of the friendly encouragement offered by the more professional and award-winning painters. Art League members participate in the annual auction to benefit the non-profit Friends in Service Here, neighbors helping neighbors. Baileys provides reusable grocery bags that each artist uses as a canvas to paint a variety of subjects and beautiful local scenes. The bags are displayed in March and the auction proceeds are donated to the FISH food pantry. The current art show contains creative artwork by talented artists of all experience levels. Color, design and composition is evident in the large variety of materials used and subject matter. The Library, 472-2483 is at 770 Dunlop Rd. next to City Hall.

9 ISLAND SUN JULY 19, 2013 AS acred Moment In A Coffee L inesubmitted by Rev. D r. Ellen M. S loanAs I hastily made my way to the coffee stand at Health Park Hospital, I heard the most heavenly strains of music. For those of you who know Health Park, it resembles more a hotel lobby than a hospital with palm trees, waterfalls, vaulted ceilings, balconies and flowing streams. Theres also a grand piano there where various people take turns playing each day of the week. So, the strains of music decorating the massive space were a common occurrence Id often heard the piano playing here, so I didnt look over to see who it was. I figured that after my coffee, Id walk over and say my usual Thank you to the pianist of the day. The line for coffee was long and I waited... when suddenly, I heard Mozarts Fantasy in D minor begin to waft through the air. It was exquisitely performed and I tried to look through the lush lobby vegetation to see who was playing. I couldnt quite see and didnt want to lose my place in line, so I stayed put. Following Mozart, a Bach Minuet began and it was so incredible that I decided no cup of coffee was worth it right now. I had to go and see who had their fingers on the ebony and ivory. As I walked closer to the piano, I noticed quite a group of people gathered there... and then I saw him: a small boy about the age of 9 or 10. I had heard and read about child prodigies, but Id never, ever witnessed one. I was awestruck, as were all the people around me. The innocence of his demeanor, the tiny hands traveling up and down the keys, his closed eyes, and the way he swayed back and forth to the beautiful rhythms was overwhelming. And all of this with no music in front of him. I found my throat catching suddenly and tears at the corners of my eyes. It was one of those moments when I felt God had gifted me with the sight of His glorious handiwork, front and center. From Mozart to Bach to Beethoven the notes came forth from those small human hands like spiritual gifts given from that childs Creator and offered to all of us. I saw the boys family off to one side and went over to thank them and to share how Id felt the presence of God in their son. The father said his son Noah was a miracle in their lives. Someone spontaneously added that she wondered how anyone could doubt the existence of God when seeing such a gift of creation. I nodded my head. Eventually, I wandered back into my daily reality of hospital visits and headed to the elevators. The ascent in the elevator was almost surreal as I savored the gift just given to me and realized again the truth beyond my under standing: thats Gods holy and lifegiving Spirit though always with me had actually tapped me on the shoulder in a long coffee line and made me gasp in renewed amazement and thanksgiving. What a sacred moment.

11 ISLAND SUN JULY 19, 2013 Martha Jean Ryckman, born on September 19, 1920 in Detroit, Michigan and most recently a resident of Shell Point, died on July 12, 2013 after 92 wonderful years. Marthas love for children led her to attend Kalamazoo College and to graduate from Wayne State University with bachelors and masters degrees in Elementary Education. After college, Martha met her future husband, Bud Ryckman, who she married in 1945. She enjoyed a 21-year career as a kindergarten/first grade teacher in the Detroit Public Schools. In addition to teaching, one of Bud and Marthas loves was co-directing a summer camp serving many underprivileged children from the Detroit area. Upon moving to Sanibel in 1975, she was the first director of the Childrens Education Center of the Islands and taught there until 1983. Martha was also an enthusiastic supporter of the Ding Darling Wildlife Society, Sanibel Community Church and the Sanibel United Church of Christ. In 1991, Bud and Martha moved to Shell Point. While at Shell Point, she was an active member of the Pavilion Auxiliary Board beginning in 1993, serving as the President of the Auxiliary from 1999 to 2003. Marthas greatest joy was her family, as well as a diverse and wonderful group of friends. She was married to the love of her life and her best friend, Bud, for 52 incredible years, until his death in 1997. She is survived by her two devoted sons, Douglas (Kris) and Frederick (Susan) Ryckman and their families, including eight grandchildren and four greatgrandchildren. A service celebrating Marthas life will be held on Saturday, July 20 at the Shell Point Village Church at 11:15 a.m. In lieu of flowers, please direct memorial gifts to the Childrens Education Center of the Islands, 350 Casa Ybel Road, Sanibel, FL 33957.

Her warm smile and caring spirit blessed many lives and will live on in each of them.

Take a walk on the beach and you may be lucky enough to see tiny chicks running around, looking for food. Like most shorebirds, snowy plovers nest right on the beach and are potential prey for a host of predators. Their main defense is camouflage, and they blend so well with the color of Sanibels sand that its almost impossible to see them unless theyre moving. Because snowy plovers have declined in numbers over the years, theyre listed as threatened by the State of Florida. In 2002, the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) initiated their Snowy Plover Project, along with the JN Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge and the City of Sanibel, to study and protect these vulnerable ground nesters. On Friday, July 26 at 11 a.m., Joel Caouette, SCCFs shorebird monitoring coordinator, will partner with Claudia Burns, longtime Snowy Plover Project volunteer, to present The Secret Lives of Snowy Plovers at the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW). The presentation will feature photos of these cryptic birds along with insights into their behavior, which is often completely different than that of birds who nest in trees. This is a rare opportunity to learn about a threatened species that depends on Sanibels beach for its continued survival, as well as to tour CROWs Healing Winds Visitor Education Center and learn more about their efforts to save wildlife through compassion, care and education. CROW is located at 3883 Sanibel-Captiva Road, across from The Sanibel School. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for teens and free for members and children 12 and under.

ISLAND SUN JULY 19, 201316 Shell Museum Volunteers Complete MoveFor the last four years, a group of volunteers from The BaileyMatthews Shell Museum has worked tirelessly to help organize the museums shell collection. Acquired over the years, the enormous collection of shells has been brought out of boxes and sorted into a safe, appropriate storage and collections area. Sanibel resident Tom Risher, originally from Green Pond, New Jersey, has been one of the museums most active and engaged volunteers. Risher spearheaded the process by implementing a strategy around arranging the large volume of shells donated to the museum and integrating them into the collection. Together with Leroy Nietzel, Ann Moeder, Smoky and Stephanie Payson, Judy Gaggin, Susan Sprout and Genese Hessman, the volunteers have made critical strides in helping organize the museums collection management process. These volunteers have donated countless amounts of hours and energy to the museum, said Laura Richardson, the museums full-time collection manager. Many museums around the country still have their collections in basements or attics, which speaks very highly of the initiative taken by our volunteers and their commitment to finishing the task. We are proud of the work they have accomplished and we thank them for their dedication to the museum. For more information about the museum, visit www.shellmuseum.org or call 395-2233.

17 ISLAND SUN JULY 19, 2013 CROW Case Of The Week: Common Moorhenby Patricia MolloyThe common moorhen (Gallinula chloropus), nicknamed the Swamp Chicken, is a secretive duck-like bird found most commonly in shallow, freshwater and brackish marshes. While it may prefer to stay out of sight, it possesses a large repertoire of gargling calls and loud hisses commonly used when it perceives an eminent threat. The common moorhen is widespread throughout Africa, Europe, India and South America; its preferred breeding grounds in North America extend south from New England, along the Atlantic coastline, and north from the Gulf of Mexico to the Great Lakes. The moorhen currently at CROW is an adult female which was very weak and lethargic upon arrival. Unable to stand, radiographs were taken to look for injures such as fractures and hemorrhaging. None were found. Hospital Director Dr. Heather Barron was concerned that the bird was suffering from brevetoxicosis caused by red tide exposure or capture myopathy, a noninfectious disease in which exertion and stress cause muscle damage. She ordered the patient to be treated with an oral pain reliever and antibiotics. Several days after her admission to the wildlife clinic, Dr. Heather reviewed the patients condition with Dr. Kristen Dube, CROWs new DVM intern. Dr. Kristen remarked, She looks a bit depressed to me and I want to go back and look at her radiographs. She is still not standing up. She has movement in her legs and she has sensation in her legs, so Im not sure what is wrong because there was no indication of trauma in her initial radiographs. Personally, I fear it could be capture myopathy and that is not a very good prognosis. I will look at her radiographs again and reassess her today, replied Dr. Heather. Also distressing is the fact that she is not eating on her own, possibly due to stress. If you love the islands diverse and exotic wildlife, support the clinics patients by donating items from its Supply Wish List: paper towels, Purina ONE Kitten Chow, bleach, Purina Puppy Chow (no colored chunks), red heat lamps (250W), contractor clean-up bags (42 gallon), wild bird seed, laundry detergent (fragrance free), hand and bath towels (new or gently used), Clorox Clean-up and ceramic crocs (ramekins, etc.) of all sizes.

19 ISLAND SUN JULY 19, 2013 BOAT RENTALS 472-5800 Readying Your Coastline For Rising Waterssubmitted by Ken and Kate Gooderham, ASBPA executive directorsMost of us know that wide beaches, high dunes and stronger buildings enable coastal areas to survive rising seas and stronger storms. But if you want to see what the nuts and bolts of preparing a major coastal area for an uncertain future looks like, New York City has done the work and the final result is a lesson for us all. In the wake of Superstorm Sandy and some eight months, 438 pages and an estimated $20 billion price tag later the soon-to-be-departed Bloomberg administration has put a plan (and cost) on how the most intensely developed coastal area in our country plans to prepare to deal with the dual disasters. According to reports on the studys conclusions, the scope of the improvements cuts across the cityscape from hardening the power grid to withstand flood waters, making existing structures (particularly public housing) more stormand surge-resistant, restoring soft coastal defenses such as marshes, oyster beds and (of course) dunes and beaches, building hard protection where necessary to prevent flooding, and a whole host of other ideas some of which are not included in the current cost as they will require further study. Those who want more details can look it up online (www.nyc.gov/html/ sirr/html/report/report.shtml), but heres what coastal professionals around the country should draw from the Big Apples conclusions: the simplest of plans to counter the threats of sea level rise and more intense storms will take years even decades to achieve even the most basic improvements. due to the potential magnitude of the problem and the scope of its impact not to mention the interconnectedness of coastal management where a fix here can create an unintended problem over there it really takes a broad-brush big-picture approach to have a real impact. ing and it wont get any cheaper if you wait. Consider that the cost of the NYC plan is roughly equal to the recovery costs from Sandy to the same area, and you decide which is a smarter investment. partnership to get it done, covering many jurisdictions and disciplines. This isnt a big-government solution, its a big-picture solution and the private sector needs to be part of the planning from Day One. Its their homes and lives at stake, their businesses and infrastructure at risk and their dollars that will need to help pay for this. unique needs and issues that will demand unique answers. To be effective, communities will need to set priorities and have different approaches to succeed and nothing in the coastal toolbox should be off the table in this discussion. The final and perhaps most lasting lesson from all this is that the plan you start with is not the plan youll see in place when (or if) things reach completion. Lessons will be learned, needs will be reshuffled, sticker shock will take its toll and, mostly, youll learn something new from every storm, from every new study of sea level, from new technology and old principles. Youll also need to adapt to the unique conditions each coastal community faces, with an overall goal being prepared for rising seas either incrementally increasing over years or rapidly rising due to storms tempered by the caseby-case solutions that must be crafted for each coastline facing this crisis. While some things remain constant such as that wide beaches and high dunes will keep storm waves and rising tides away from upland infrastructure everything else about the coast evolves. That shouldnt prevent you from starting your planning now (in fact, quite the opposite), but it should remind you to think big, learn often and keep searching for the best solution to keep coastlines and their communities healthy.

ISLAND SUN JULY 19, 201320 Still Trying To Stay Dryby Capt. Matt MitchellOur summer pattern of dodging thunderstorms continued this week. Morning, day or night storms brought rains ranging from light showers to total downpours with dangerous lightning. If you managed to stay dry out on the water this week, you were one of the lucky few. Big high morning tides along with a provailing south wind pushing the water up even higher was the perfect set up for good for redfish action. Finding mullet schools was the key for me to get on redfish up to 32 inches. When targeting these redfish, I have been fishing areas of small, sandy potholes out from mangrove islands in the southern sound. The more mullet you found in a area, the more redfish were there. My rig of choice for these redfish is a medium-sized pinfish hooked between the head and dorsel fin on a 1/4 oz. jig head with about two feet of leader under a float. Keep the leader just short enough; the bait cannot hide in the grass. Often these reds will chase the pinfish up to the surface while trying to swallow it and then bump and mouth it several times before finally eating and moving off with the bait. Dead sticking cut mullet and ladyfish chunks also got the job done on these redfish, but the majority of these fish seemed to prefer the live bait option. Snook fishing was also consistently good action all week in the passes on lower stages of the tide. Drifting live pinfish and grunts with a split shot so it bounces the bottom caught snook after snook of all sizes. The majority of these snook are in the 20to 30-inch range, but be ready to hook that monster that will freight train you. We had a few hook ups this week that simply could not be turned before the hard fighting fish made it to structure and parted ways. With our water really dirty colored now because of all the rain, sight fishing out on the beaches pretty much came to a end for the time being. Although there are still plenty of fish all along our beaches, its more about covering water or finding structure and troughs between the sandbars than simply seeing them. A search bait like a swim bait or a white bucktail jig is a good option to find these snook. Tarpon are still around both gulf side and in the bay. They are not in the big numbers of May and June but can be found in the usual places. Between thunderstorms one morning this week, I was amazed at how many tarpon just appeared in one of my more favorite places in the sound. When the water went slick calm, tarpon just started popping up all over. After about an hour of having fish consistently rolling all around us and not hooking up, frustration got the best of us and we moved off to catch some snook in the pass. Gag grouper fishing in the deeper passes is still happening, though the numbers of keeper-sized fish keeps getting less and less as season has now been open a few weeks and these easy to get to pass fish have been hit hard. A better option now to get that gag grouper dinner is to head a few miles offshore in the 20to 30-foot range and troll deep diving plugs. Run a two rod spread with Manns Stretch 20s and 30s far enough behind the boat to bump the bottom. Look for fish heavens and ledges as a good starting place. When you hook a fish, hit the mark button on your GPS and then head back over this same area. Our summer rains have really made getting out fishing a little tough this last few weeks. Luckily when I have been able to get out, staying dry has been the hardest part and the fish have come pretty easy.Capt. Matt Mitchell has been fishing local waters since he moved to Sanibel in 1980.

Plant SmartMadagascar Periwinkleby Gerri ReavesMadagascar periwinkles (Catharanthus roseus) very name advertises that it is not a Florida native, but it sure is popular in South Florida. It is easily cultivated and has been imported as an ornamental to many parts of the world, including Sanibel Island, whose main thoroughfare Periwinkle Way bears its name. This semi-woody year-round bloomer is nothing if not cheerful and easy maintenance. It usually grows to a height of one to two feet, forming a bushy flowerstudded groundcover that also makes a pretty border or hanging plant. Hardy, droughtand salt-resistant, it grows best in full sun but will tolerate some shade. It actually thrives in poor soil, as long as its well-drained. Give it too much moisture and root rot will ensue. The tubular flowers are one to two inches across with five wide petals flaring out from a center of dark pink. The most common flower color is the standard rosy pink, but cultivars come in white and various shades of pink and red. The opposite evergreen leaves are oval or elliptical with pointed tips and a noticeable greenish white central vein. The erect stems exude a milky latex sap if broken. The cylindrical pods of about an inch long occur in pairs and turn from green to brown as they mature. Periwinkle often self-sows, but it can be propagated with seeds or cuttings. This member of the dogbane family is toxic if ingested by people or livestock. However, it has significant medicinal value. The alkaloids in the leaves are used to treat a variety of diseases, including diabetes, malaria and several types of cancer. Sources: Wildflowers of Florida Field Guide by Jaret C.

When you add a donkey who wont shut up, a princess with a deep secret, a bad guy with a short temper and a cast loaded with talent, you have a show that offers a great time for audiences of all ages. I totally loved this show. In a far away kingdom, Shrek (Chuck Caruso) goes on a quest to rescue Princess Fiona (Kate Marshall) from a tower guarded by a fire-breathing dragon. His plan is to deliver Fiona to Lord Farquaad (Jason Loete) in exchange for the deed to his swamp. The show follows the popular animated movie Shrek. I remember taking my then 6-year-old grandson to see the movie. He is now 18. It brought back fond memories and it was delightful watching the lovable ogre with all his friends, foes and fairytale characters prancing about on stage. Caruso makes a great Shrek. He lumbers ogre-like around the stage and really shines when he cuts loose and gets his groove on. Rendell DeBose, is perfectly cast as the sassy donkey with his comical facial expressions and antics. He offered many LOL moments. Marshall is lovely as the princess with a voice to match. Loete, spends his time singing and even dancing on his knees portraying Farquaad with his spindly short legs. Not an easy task, but he is up to the challenge. These four actors are definitely the stars of the production and the supporting cast lives up to their job. They all have great singing voices, and although the songs arent ones you are apt to remember or sing going home, they are pleasant to hear. Its the lyrics that really hit you. Listen close because there are words of wisdom in each one, and they also add greatly to the story line. Stephanie Genovese provides the singing voice for the dragon... and what a voice. Then theres the belching and farting number between Fiona and Shrek. Sounds gross, but it provides laughs, especially for the youngsters. As the play draws to a close and you feel good about what you have seen on stage, the cast invites everyone to sing along with Im A Believer. What a way to bring down the house! The show features an eye-popping array of colorful costumes, choreography that includes tap-dancing rats and it even pokes subtle fun at Wicked, The Lion King and Les Miz. Shrek The Musical plays through August 10 at Broadway Palm, Southwest Floridas Premier Dinner Theatre. For children 18 and under, tickets are just $18 for buffet and show.

23 ISLAND SUN JULY 19, 2013 Birds Eye ViewChecking N ests In The Red Mangrovesby Mark Bird WestallYears ago when I was monitoring the ospreys on Sanibel, every two to three weeks I would visit every occupied osprey nest on the island and check on the progress the nesting birds were having. Throughout the nesting period, in order to determine exactly how many eggs were laid, the amount of chick mortality that occurred, and eventually banding every surviving fledgling, I had to somehow find a way to get up close to and, eventually at the end of the season, into the nest. Except for banding, it was not absolutely necessary for me to actually get all the way up into the nest, but it was necessary for me to somehow see into the nest. If the nest was on an artificial nesting platform, it was usually relatively easy to get up close to the bottom of the platform with a heavy duty 35-foot extension ladder and use a mirror attached to an extendable pole to look inside the nest. But when it came close to fledging time, I had no choice but to climb all the way up into the nest, removing the chicks one at a time, bringing them to the ground, putting aluminum FWS lockon bands on the chicks, and returning them to their parents. Over the 10-year period of the study, we were able to band around 350 birds. But many nests were out in the mangroves of the refuge and since the ospreys always nest in top of the canopy, that meant that I needed to find a way to get over 40 feet up into the trees every two to three weeks. Also, with such a tall and thick upper canopy, quite often any mature red mangrove with an osprey nest in the top of it had little to no branches strong enough for me to use for climbing until approximately 30 feet up in the air. But luckily for me, the red mangrove already had a built-in human assist climbing mechanism in place! Have you ever noticed the gnarly growths that seem to cover the trunks of the red mangroves while going out to the Red Mangrove Overlook on the Wildlife Drive of the refuge? What those knots actually are is the trees reaction to the production of an indoleacetic acid by a naturally-occurring fungus officially known as Cylindrocarpon didymum. This fungus infects the trunk, branches and prop roots of the red mangrove through lenticels in the bark of the tree as opposed to wounds or insect feeding sites. A lenticel is the part of a tree made up of porous tissue that functions as a pore, providing a pathway for the direct exchange of gases from the inner part of the tree, through the bark (which is otherwise impermeable to gases) and the atmosphere. This break in the bark, however, also creates the perfect environment for the fungus to thrive and grow; thus, an infection can start. When a red mangrove tree becomes infected with the fungus, it eventually develops the knots, otherwise known as a gall. As you may have noticed, the gall can vary in size from less than half an inch and, depending on the size of the tree and its location, can eventually reach almost eight inches in diameter. The gall is typically darkened in color and rough (cracked and/or fissured), especially as it matures. Almost all mangroves on Sanibel are infected with the fungus, but there appears to be little negative impact as a result. The only problem that has been observed has been the predisposition of diseased trees to suffer wind breakage, where infections are abundant and/or severe. But as far as my using the galls to gain access to the upper story of the mangrove forest, I saw their existence as a benefit. Even though the roughened bark would sometimes occasionally break off of the gall, there was a hard, woody foundation underneath and, thus, the perfect foothold was created. And once I made it up into the upper canopy by using the galls as a ladder, then it was usually a fairly simple job to climb the rest of the way up to the nest. People on my canoe tours are sometimes impressed that I was able to climb all the way up into the top of the trees, but actually it wasnt that big of a deal. The galls make good footholds while climbing the trunks and, once up into the branches, the rest was easy. Mangroves are incredibly strong trees and many times I could climb all the way to the top of the canopy and look across the top of the surrounding forest. As a matter of fact, in the early days of my study, I use to enjoy taking my lunch with me into the mangroves, walking through the interior of the mangrove forest across the tops of the mangrove roots (I always compared it to walking across the top of a jungle gym), climbing the tallest mangrove I could find and nestling myself in a comfortable notch at the top of the tree, and eating my lunch continued on page ??

29 ISLAND SUN JULY 19, 2013 Pacheco Publishes Poetry CollectionNo more poems on death, not one word on growing old Joe Pacheco begins his latest collection, Sanibel Joes Songbook, with a promise to include only the thrill and sweep of the delicious fourth quar ter/ play by delicious play. And with the exception of a section called Leftover Heavy Poems, Pacheco keeps his promise. His journey through the American songscape fashions parodies and poems into social and political commentary on life in past and present America without ever losing his wry humorous octogenarian perspective. His poems bring to mind the velvet fog of Mel Torm and the cool tones of David Amram, writes Dr. Jim Brock of Florida Gulf Coast University. The songs begin on Sanibel, travel back to Puerto Rico and New York City in the 20th century, visit grandchildren in Bethlehem and enter a section called Politically Incorrectus, where the political battles and crises of the post-911 era are captured in parodies and satires which move through the 2012 presidential campaign, fiscal cliff, gun control and immigration controversies. Denis Duhamel of Florida International University says, Sanibel Joes poems are unpretentious and as much fun as the best pop-songs. Theyre catchy and downright infectious. Joe Pacheco is a retired New York City School Superintendent and poetry columnist. His worked is featured regular ly in print and electronic journals and he has performed his poetry numerous times on NPR Morning Edition, Latino USA and WGCU broadcasts. Sanibel Joes Songbook is his third book of poems. Sanibel Joes Songbook is published by Limitless Press and can be purchased online at Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com.

Poets Corner selected by Tanya HochschildPoem Title by Betty A nholtEpiphany following the spring storm Yet again the rains come, out of a pinwheeled sky revolving and dimensional only to dissolve, to disclose a half moon resolutely facing west. Standing patient, unperturbed, pink cumulus gaze down at the unkempt blue clouds hurrying to hang on at the end of a chain of crack-the-whip whose center is far north. Nearly moon-high, a wisp of gilded cirrus glows. On the cusp of darkness birds comb their unsheveled air. The worried blue clouds, permeable, are rended by a birds wing then mended by wind singing a soft allelujah. An egret, neck folded back to fly, glides past so close and so intent on his journey I fall back, give him that uncombed sky. A Sanibel resident for many years, Betty Anholt has always been drawn to the interactions of our environment and history.

rfn BUSINESS REAL ESTATE CLASSIFIEDS VOL. 21, NO. 4 SANIBEL & CAPTIVA ISLANDS, FLORIDA JULY 19, 2013 BSECTION S ea T urtle N ests Relocated On Captiva Beachesby Jeff L ysiakEvery so often, Mother Nature could use a helping hand. This summer, with a massive beach renour ishment project looming on the horizon, the staff and volunteers associated with the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundations Sea Turtle Monitoring Program are providing that assistance. With sea turtle nesting season about to reach its peak, SCCF biologist and program coordinator Amanda Bryant noted during her July 11 inspection of a seven-mile stretch of Captiva beachfront from the Blind Pass inlet to the tip of South Seas Island Resort that time is of the essence right now. According to Bryant, by the middle of August, a longplanned beach renourishment project will begin, replenishing more than 800,000 cubic yards of sand along the Captiva shoreline from Blind Pass to Redfish Pass. The project also includes Sanibel, where an additional 75,000 cubic yards of sand will enhance 6,330 feet of shoreline along the northern coast. But, since this project will commence in the midst of sea turtle nesting season, SCCF and the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) stepped in and took action, issuing a special permit which allows Bryant and other FWC Marine Turtle permit holders to move sea turtle nests that would be impacted by the project. As of July 10, weve moved 21 nest, said Bryant as she began her daily patrol of nesting sites. The first nest she was scheduled to dig Nest #06 had hatched three days earlier. Bryant dug down deep into the egg chamber and inventoried the nest: 90 hatchlings made it out of the nest, five hatchlings did not and one did not make it out of its egg. Overall, Bryant called Nest #06 a big success. Despite all the rain Southwest Florida has seen over the past few weeks, Bryant reported that sea turtle nests are quite resilient and protected from the elements. With Tropical Storm Andrea, we had some high tides for a day or two, and we had a few nests washed over, but the majority of them were OK, said Bryant, who began working at SCCF in 2008. It wasnt like Tropical Storm Debby last year, which hung around for four or five days. Nests cant survive being inundated with water for that amount of time. A little further along the shoreline, Bryant stopped at Nest #04, which sometime earlier in the day perhaps within an hour or two had seen hatchlings emerge. Yay! Some babies hatched! she said enthusiastically, grabbing her camera to take pictures of the trail in the sand left by the newborns. And theyre all going in the right direction! Our volunteers are going to be so happy to hear about this! Shortly after 8 a.m., Bryant steered SCCFs four-wheel drive Kubota across the sand at South Seas Island Resort when she spotted something unusual: a set of crawl marks with an entry and exit point at the waters edge but where was her nesting spot? The only available space was a small gap between two stacks of lounge chairs nestled up against the dunes, quite possibly the worst place a loggerhead couldve chosen to lay her eggs. Sure enough, thats where she nested. Its critical that we move them as quickly as possible, said Bryant, who trained for two years with the FWC to obtain a special FWC permit to relocate sea turtle nests. The eggs have to stay moist, they shouldnt be exposed to too much air or too much heat from the sun and you dont want to rotate them from the way you found them in their original nest. Orientation is very important in their development. One by one, Bryant removed the eggs all 165 of them, a very large clutch from the nest at South Seas Island Resort and placed them into a bucket. The soft, leathery, ping-pong ball-sized spheres were then transported to another section of Captiva beachfront one which will not be affected by the renourishment project where Bryant quickly dug a new egg chamber. The goal is to mimic what the mother turtle did with the original nest to be about the same shape and size of the original egg chamber, said Bryant. Whether theyre laying 50 eggs or 150 eggs, sea turtles just seem to know what theyre doing. As Bryant dug the new nest, a small crowd of curious onlookers surrounded the spot. Placing each egg carefully inside the chamber, Bryant shared some of her knowledge with the passersby, hoping that they, too, will become interested in learning more about sea turtles and ongoing efforts to protect the species. And, with the new nest staked, marked and numbered, thanks to Bryant and her team of volunteers, as many as 165 hatchlings may emerge on Captivas beachfront in about two months. Mother Nature couldnt have done it better herself. Bryant carefully removes and counts each of the newlylaid loggerhead eggs Bryant inventories Captiva nest #06, which successfully hatched 90 sea turtles Captiva resident Dick Pyle stopped by to see what Amanda Bryant was up to photos by Jeff Lysiak A small crowd gathers around SCCF biologist and sea turtle program coordinator Amanda Bryant as she prepares to place 165 newly-laid loggerhead eggs in a relocated nest along Captivas beachfront last week

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 gives 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: particularly 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. photo by Dave Meardon

5B ISLAND SUN JULY 19, 2013 From page 2BPACE Center Boardand become productive members of our community. Markham has served as the founding chairwoman of the Board of Directors and during her seven-year tenure, hundreds of at-risk girls have overcome difficult circumstances, resulting in emotional healing and academic enhancement. One of Markhams most notable accomplishments was her vision for a state of the art educational facility for the PACE Lee girls. Under her direction, more than $700,000 has been raised towards the $1.3 million dollar goal from the local community towards the capital campaign. Two signature community events were also created: Love that Dress! and The Grande Dames Tea. As Stilwell prepares to lead the PACE Lee Board of Directors, she reflects on the legacy Markham has made on this young agency. She has been the most remarkable leader. Gail is responsible for bringing us to the level we are at today. Her commitment and dedication to this [PACE] center is beyond outstanding. Thank you, Gail, said Stilwell, who began her term on July 1, along with newly appointed Executive Director, Meg M. Geltner. This leadership transition at PACE Lee will allow the center to continue building on the foundation that Gail was instrumental in creating said President and CEO of PACE Center For Girls, Inc. Mary Marx. Sandys talents and strong passion for the community will ensure that center not only thrives but expands to provide more services to more girls.

6B ISLAND SUN JULY 19, 2013Biking On SanibelFrank and Denise Coyne are back again from Dublin, Ireland to see if they can match their last years biking record. Hail, rain or snow, they decided to take to biking once again this year. The Coynes said they had thought of spending more time at the beach and at the pool, but after their first morning biking from East Rocks to the Lighthouse Caf, biking fever got to them and they have been biking ever since. Hail or snow may not happen on Sanibel, but rain certainly does. Floridians call it liquid sunshine, but after being caught out in the Florida rains on the bikes, they have another name for it: torrential downpour. The couple have been biking almost 10 weeks on gearless hire-bikes and have 2,977 miles on the odometer, two punctures and one breakdown. Last year, they did 3,373 miles and are now trying to match or break this record. To date, since they started biking on Sanibel 11 years ago, (which is the equivalent of 28 months), they have done 27,186 miles. They would like to get to 30,000 miles, but looking at their record to date, they will definitely have to come back next year. Frank and Denise Coyne Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellIts not a rarity at Rotary to have guests from overseas traveling to our islands from distant shores as far away as Africa and Asia. But this week our meeting visitors were from just across the causeway. Islanders often refer to any location across the causeway as overseas. The club welcomed McKenzie Millis and Dr. Carol Clark, members of the Shell Point staff to speak to us regarding our neighboring senior-retirement-living community on the Fort Myers mainland (sometimes referred to as the Sanibel annex). McKenzie has been with Shell Point since 2005 and has had experience serving the Shell Point community members in a variety of ways. She is currently an Assistant Living Healthcare Marketing Specialist for Shell Points three assisted living facilities: Kings Crown, The Arbor and the brand new The Springs. As many of us know, the Shell Point community provides an array of living arrangements for senior living; as they like to say, Lifestyle with lifecare. Whether you are living independently in one of the five resident neighborhoods, need assistant living services or skilled nursing care, you will receive that care as a member of the Shell Point community. Shell Point has 950 employees serving 2,300 residents and an amazing amount of activities available within the community golf, tennis, boating, exercise classes, lecture and enrichment series, entertainment and the list goes on and on. Just think of what Sanibel has to offer, take out the beaches, shrink down the island and you have Shell Point. The staff there is always planning ahead, just as they think you should be, looking at the reality of what their needs are or will be and how to provide services that will deliver the best quality of life for Shell Pointers in the future. They have adjusted their life-care options over time and have a menu of five life-care contracts: Plan A Standard life-care contract, NEW a 75 percent or 90 percent refundable option on Plan A; Plan B Modified life-care, reduction rate applied to Plan A only providing access to skilled nursing care with additional charges; Plan C 100 percent refund of entrance fee upon death or contract cancellation. This contract does not include assisted living or skilled nursing. To be fair, check these facts out on your own these contracts are more detailed then stated in this article. Shell Point just recently opened a new non-contract assisted living residence building, The Springs at Shell Point, right on Summerlin. This is something very new for Shell Point no contract is required and monthto-month rates apply. The Springs is designed for the resident whose quality of life would be improved by support services. Residents at The Springs may enjoy the enrichment activities of the Shell Point community. McKenzie also spoke of a new phase of development that is on the drawing board at Shell Point. This community will be located central to the Shell Point Golf Course. This development will comprise of single-family houses and villa-type properties. Construction will start soon. Any questions, call McKenzie at Shell Point. On to Dr. Carol Clark, an advanced registered nurse practitioner who holds a doctorate degree in education. Dr. Clark is manager of the J. Howard Wood Medical Center at Shell Point. The J. Howard Wood Medical Center is part of the Waterside Medical Complex continued on page 7B Tarpon Bay Explorers Hosts Benefit For Families Of Arizona FirefightersThe Yarnell Hill Fire in Arizona killed 19 firefighters on June 30, 2013.

From time to time, a client will visit with me convinced that he or she has protected their assets from the claims of creditors by placing all of their assets and properties in a joint tenancy known as Tenants By The Entireties. This is a popular but limited form of asset protection that has its benefits and traps. First, lets review the three differ ent forms of joint ownership. They are Tenants In Common (TIC), Joint Tenants With Rights Of Survivorship (JWROS) and, as mentioned above, Tenancy By The Entireties (TBE). Tenants In Common is an undivided interest of joint ownership. This means that each party has the right to alienate, or transfer the ownership of, her ownership interest. This can be done by deed, will, or other conveyance. When one joint owner dies, their interest is subject to probate. In contrast, owning assets or property jointly with rights of survivorship avoids the probate process, but is similar to TIC in that either party can individually alienate or transfer his interest. When this happens, the asset is owned as TIC. Individuals owning assets or property as tenants by the entireties cannot alienate or transfer without the consent and signature of the other. Now that you understand the differ ent forms of joint ownership, lets review the benefits of TBE. Holding assets as TBE has certain advantages for married couples. When one spouse dies, the sur viving spouse owns all the assets without the need for probate. Creditors of only one spouse cannot reach the assets, as both husband and wife must be liable for a creditor to successfully attack the assets. But there are traps for the unwary when relying on TBE for asset protection purposes. Allow me to present to you the top five with a special thank you to my colleague attorney Phillip B. Rarick in Miami Florida for his help in putting these together: 1. You must be married. TBE is only available to those in a legally recognized marriage. In Florida, this rules out same sex unions as well as common law mar riages. Even if a couple who is not legally married titles assets or property as tenants by the entireties, they will not be afforded the asset protections enumerated under the law. 2. Assets held jointly before marriage do not automatically become TBE upon becoming married. The assets must be re-titled from one of the spouses to them jointly as tenants by the entireties after the marriage to achieve TBE status. 3. TBE assets can be attacked when both spouses are liable. If a creditor has a judgment against both spouses, then the creditor can reach TBE assets. This can happen when one spouse causes a ter rible car accident when both spouses own the car involved in the accident. Further, if one spouse dies or the marriage ends in the middle of a creditor problem, the creditor will be able to attack the TBE property. 4. The account must be created properly or the protection is lost. When one spouse owns a bank or brokerage account, for example, and simply adds the other spouses name as TBE, it will not be considered TBE property. There is a rule that TBE assets and property must be created with four unities those of time, title, interest and possession. Therefore, the proper way to create a TBE account that is currently owned by only one spouse is to close the account and open a new account in both spouses names as TBE. 5. Joint with Rights of Survivorship is not TBE. While Florida law presumes TBE ownership between a husband and wife when opening a bank account, if the bank officer checked a JWROS box on the account application, then that will trump the TBE presumption and protections. Therefore, bank and brokerage signature cards should always be checked to assure TBE ownership and protections. There are additional issues surrounding TBE property, particularly in second marriage situations where there is a nuptial agreement that defines non-marital property that should not be subject to the other spouse in a divorce proceeding. Further, if your estate plan contemplates assets in one spouses name or the others (including ownership in a revocable trust), then it is important to consider the estate planning ramifications of any transfer of ownership. As one can readily see, there are many considerations when opening up bank and brokerage accounts or titling real estate into joint name, and they are not to be taken lightly. Craig R. Hersch.

ISLAND SUN JULY 19, 201312B Pressure Building to Fire Twins Manager Ron Gardenhireby Ed FrankWill Minnesota Twins Manager Ron Gardner still have his job when the Twins assemble here next February? With the Twins headed for their third straight season losing more than 90 games, the pressure is building for the Twins to part ways with Gardenhire. This past week, longtime columnist Patrick Reusse of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune called for his ouster, writing that Gardenhire isnt providing improvement, hope, direction and leadership. He said it would be kinder to let Gardenhire go now rather than letting him oversee another death march before his contract expires at the end of this season. And Phil Rogers, the baseball writer for the Chicago Tribune was critical of Gardenhire and the Twins front office for giving up on Carlos Gomez who is having an All-Star year with the Milwaukee Brewers who at weeks end was batting .302 and on pace for 25 home runs and 37 stolen bases. Gardenhire is in his 12th year as Twins manager and his teams had won six American League Central Division titles in the first nine years. But like the 2011 and 2012 seasons, this year has been another disaster. The week began with the Twins at 39-53, 12 games behind first-place Detroit after losing 12 of the last 15 games. The lack of offense and effective pitching is the root cause of the teams problems. Of the 15 teams in the American League, Minnesota entered last weekend ranked 14th in home runs, stolen bases and sacrifice hits. As to pitching, the Twins were dead last in the AL in strikeouts and 14th in ERAs. Twins General Manager Terry Ryan was quick to defend his manager saying reports that Gardenhire is on his way out are inaccurate. Theres no validity to it, he said. He and I are the leadership of this organization, and we take accountability. He is basically in the clubhouse and in the dugout, and Im in charge of the whole operation, and we both are feeling like were letting the people down, Ryan said. After the 2012 disappointing season, Ryan fired several of Gardenhires coaches and refused to give his manager a contract extension. Those actions by Ryan were interpreted by many as a do or die 2013 ultimatum to Gardenhire. But in fairness to Gardenhire, its Ryan who provides the players for Gardenhire to manage. As bad as the season has been for the Twins, they entered the All-Star break on a positive note having won two of three games from the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium. It was the first time since 2001 that the Twins had won a series from the Yankees in New York. Twins Top Two Prospects Appear in Futures Game As disappointing as the last three seasons have been for the Twins, they do have two of the most prized prospects in baseball Miguel Sano and Bryon Buxton. Both were selected for last weeks XM AllStar Futures Game and nearly every scout agreed they were the two best players in the contest. Sano is ranked as the No. 6 prospect in baseball and Buxton is No. 16. They are ranked 1-2 in the Twins organization. The 20-year-old Sano was recently promoted to Double A New Britain after a spectacular first-half season with the Fort Myers Miracle where he hit .330 with 16 homers and 48 RBIs in 56 games. He has found the going a bit tough at the higher level where he is batting in the low .200s. But he is still hitting for power and is expected to raise that average once he becomes accustomed to tougher pitching. Buxton, just 19, was the second overall pick in the 2012 Major League Draft. He also was recently moved up from Low A Cedar Rapids to Advanced A Fort Myers and has continued his torrid hitting here. The Twins are pinning their future on these two youngsters. They sure need them. Ron Gardenhire From page 2BPACE Centerand become productive members of our community. Markham has served as the founding chairwoman of the board of directors and during her seven-year tenure, hundreds of at-risk girls have overcome difficult circumstances, resulting in emotional healing and academic enhancement.

Myers Beach DESIGNER CONDO FURNITURE PACKAGE $6299PACKAGE DETAILS: INTEREST-FREE FINANCING INTEREST-FREE FINANCING San Cap Trust Companys Dorsey Encourages Investors To Have The Courage To Do NothingThe challenge of investing for the long haul in a myopic and hyperactive world that mistakes activity for intelligence is often a difficult one. Over the past month or so, interest rates shot up, equities fell and then recovered, and bonds were taken to the woodshed. These events caused more than a small amount of hyperventilating in the financial media, but should not affect how to manage money, according to The Sanibel Captiva Trust Companys Director of Research Pat Dorsey, CFA, who cites five reasons why: 1. Interest rates are still extremely low by historical standards, and nowhere near the tight levels that would crimp economic growth. Investment-grade companies can borrow money at well below 4 percent, creditworthy homebuyers can borrow for thirty years at 4.5 percent, and our government can borrow money for ten years at 2.5 percent. 2. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke has been exceedingly clear that the pace of the Feds bond buying (which has helped to keep interest rates low) would slow as economic growth improved, and as unemployment declined. Both of these events are coming to pass, so the Fed is simply doing what it said it would. Anyone who is surprised by the Feds recent statements has been either living under a rock for the past few years, or is afflicted with chronic self-delusion. 3. Rates are heading up because the economy is improving. A better economy is good for corporate earnings, which is good for equities. Any equity investor should prefer modestly higher rates and a modestly growing economy over zero interest rates and zero economic growth. 4. Falling equity prices and higher interest rates do not affect the dividend-paying ability of 95 percent of the companies we own for clients (for some such as Paychex, CME and Berkshire Hathaway, higher short-term interest rates are actually a material positive.) If we owned companies with lots of short-term debt that would face higher financing costs, we would be worried. But we dont. 5. Since we have long believed that interest rates had to rise at some point, barring a Japan-style deflation scenario, we have spent the past year selling utilities, high-yield bonds, most REITs, some intermediate bonds, and just every other interest-rate sensitive asset we could find. This was not genius just common sense. Generally speaking, we have found that having courage to do nothing when emotions run high and market volatility spikes is the wiser choice than trying to game the stock markets unpredictable gyrations. Those who shared that courage during the 2007-09 credit crunch have enjoyed far superior returns relative to those who gave in to fear, and sold out when equity prices were depressed, Dorsey said. As the equity market adjusts to the prospect of a more normal interest-rate environment, it would not be at all surprising to see more market volatility along the lines of the past few weeks. This does not concern us, and it should not concern you, because equity prices are much like the weather impossible to predict on a day-to-day basis, but much easier to forecast longer term. Much like the weather, I have no idea what the market will do over the coming weeks or months. But I do know that, over time, the price of a share of common stock tends to track the fundamental prospects of the underlying business. As long as that business is financially sound, competitively advantaged, and managed by decent capital allocators, the courage to do nothing is likely to be the best course of action, Dorsey said.

15B ISLAND SUN JULY 19, 2013 239-437-5595 24 Hour Emergency Service on Sanibel & Captiva Insurance Tip A re Other S tructures Insured?by Marge MeekMany homeowners policies contain the wording Other Structures and give you coverage of 10 percent of the dwelling limit. So, what are Other Structures? They can be a variety of structures; like a detached garage, perimeter fencing, a shed, a guest house or a detached pool. The common denominator here is the structures are not attached to the house and are an additional coverage. Commercial buildings also sometimes offer this coverage. But, you say, you dont have any of these items and yet your policy still is showing Other Structures. Many insur ance companies do not allow removing this coverage. Some homeowners policies, however, will allow this line item to be removed or at least reduced, so be sure your agent knows your home and has adequately represented it on your homeowners policy. Coverage rules change on your flood policy. It is good to know that it covers only the house including the detached garage in its $250,000 limit of coverage. To insure any Other Structures, separate policies must be written and separate deductibles apply to each policy as well as to the personal property coverage.

Therefore, it is no surprise that their parents stress and the stress of others with whom they are in contact. Just as stress in adults originates from many different sources, the same is true for children. Babies are alert and sensitive to the world, even in the womb before birth. The messages they receive from those around them shape their emotions and beliefs. Studies suggest that babies who are separated from their mothers too soon after birth(even when there is emotional problems later on. A significant bond between mother and infant is essential. Wounds that dont heal from infancy and childhood, such as episodes of isolation, abuse and abandonment, whether children are conscious of them or not, go with them into adulthood. These wounds dont heal, but persist. During my years as a teacher, guidmany children who suffered from stress due to various traumatic emotional situations, such as divorce, addiction, depression, anxiety and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Negative programming is another issue children face. Often it is not maliciously intended, for example, Jon, you are so bad for leaving your dirty clothes on the floor. Mary, how could you be so stupid? Negative programming, from an adult thrust onto equate, unworthy, or bad. These feelings become influential components that lessen self-esteem. Because of the intense effects that traumatic emotional issues and negative programming have on children, they are capable of carrying these wounds into adulthood. Very often they which unfortunately is so prevalent in our society. Our society needs to teach children to focus on the positive rather than the we focus our energy on expands. This is true at any age. to be negative when we realize the damage that focusing on the negative can do. Teach children to focus on their strengths rather than their non-strengths and to reaching out to our children, encourage them to share their feelings, especially if share how their day in school went, and always help them to see the positive. Art therapy, self-expression through writing, drawing, painting or sculpting is a beautiful way to encourage expression of emotions. With the prevalence of dysfunction in many families, children need guidance counselors who can spend quality time with them encouraging expression of their feelings and emotions. Children need to be taught early on how to increase self-awareness and self-esteem, as well as learn methods to handle stress effectively. To advertise in the Island Sun Call 395-1213

Edison State College Building To Be RenamedFollowing a licensing agreement between Edison State College and Presidio, Inc., Building G on the Edison State College Lee Campus will be renamed The Presidio Information Technology Center. The new name, effective July 1, will remain in existence for at least five years in exchange for a $500,000 cost reduction for a new Voiceover Internet Protocol (VOIP) phone system, its software and hardware, and its installation and implementation at all three Edison State College campuses, as well as its center in LaBelle. Its a win-win when we can reduce the amount of money we have to spend, said Dr. Jeff Stewart, vice president, Research, Technology, and Accountability. The new phone system will replace the antiquated system we have now. Instead of using a regular phone system, it will run over the colleges internet network and provide a backup to the incoming calls. It will have caller ID and a missed call log, and can convert voicemail messages to email. It will be a more efficient system for our students, faculty, and staff. Installation will be complete in spring 2014. A ribbon cutting to celebrate the new name will be planned at the Lee Campus in the fall. Barrier Island Title Services, Inc.

She has missed a lot of school and she seems to be confused by arithmetic. I really dont know what she is supposed to know and some of the words they use now in arithmetic class are confusing. Please tell me what she should know by now. Luanne M., Fort Myers Luanne, You deserve a lot of credit for wanting to help your granddaughter improve her skills and catch up in math. Im sure that you both are experiencing a great deal of adjustment as you learn to live together full time. Perhaps adding in a routine of homework now in the summer will help set up a good homework schedule when she returns to school in the fall. Here is a general overview of what a first grader should know based on common standards. The categories for math skills at the first grade level include Mathematical Processes, Number and Operations, Algebra, Geometry and Measurement, Data Analysis, Statistics and Probability. This sounds intimidating, but as you look at the list below you will see how the skills and categories work together. This list is far from complete, but it includes many basic skills that when mastered will allow your granddaughter to learn new math skills more easily when she enters second grade. Grade 1 Overview and subtraction. between addition and subtraction. count forward and backward by one beginning with any number less than bers to 50. interpret and solve simple open addition sentences. names, similarities and differences identify whole number on a number line). scale. The following website has some wonderful activities for you to use as you help your granddaughter practice and learn these skills www.internet4classrooms. com/grade_level_help/skills_first_1st_ grade.htm. There are many other websites, computer games and apps that can help as well. Just keep practicing every day for short periods of time, say 10 minutes three times a day, and she should be able to recoup or learn these skills so that she is on track for second grade. Ms. Greggs is adjunct faculty at Edison State College where she teaches psychology and education courses. She is also Nationally Certified School Psychologist and consultant for School Consultation Services, a private educational consulting company.

18B ISLAND SUN JULY 19, 2013 Indispensable Advice from Dr. Dave Get your copy of Dr. Daves Book at Sanibel Island Books and Gifts, 1571 Periwinkle Way 472-5223 Mom A nd Me by L izzie and PryceLizzie and Pryce answer your questions and give advice about aging concerns from a two-generational perspective. A mother and daughter team, Lizzie is a retired RN and health educator, and Pryce is a licensed psychotherapist in private practice who specializes in the care of elders and people with chronic illnesses. Dear Mom & Me, Forty years ago, my husband and I adopted a lovely baby boy. We cherished this baby and he grew up to be a lovely young man. He became engaged to a very nice young woman and we advised him to tell her that he had been adopted. She absolutely insisted that before she would marry him she had to know his birth mother and parentage. It has been a disaster beyond our belief and three families have been torn apart because of this. During this process, I had a nervous breakdown and the birth mother and the biological father had to admit to their families their past indiscretion. Our sons girlfriend just continued with her research. We were estranged from our son and his wife because of this for over 10 years, but we have now reconciled. We enjoy the grandchildren, but our relationship will never be what it could have been without all of the chaos. Please tell people to be very careful about what they feel they must do and consider the consequences. Brenda Dear Brenda, I am very sorry to hear of your ordeal. I also would have a difficult time having a trusting, loving relationship with an individual so intent on a mission without regard for the consequences of others. Particularly since other options, specifically genetic counseling, is available. However, the longer we hold on to hurts of the past, the longer the hurts continue to cause pain. It sounds like you have been able to put some of the past in the past and enjoy a relationship with your grandchildren and your son. The ending advice in your letter is very good. Each and every one of us should be careful about what we ask of another person; and each and every one of us should be firm about our boundaries, about what we are willing and unwilling to do for others. Pryce Dear Brenda, Few people know their genetic background and most of us are not interested in knowing. Many of us would fail as perfection is hard to come by and no one can predict what the gene pool will produce. In times past, we accepted our own and adopted babies and just did our best. Now it seems everything has to be researched and analyzed. It is very sad that with the best of intentions you have had this disruption in family unity. Lizzie Lizzie and Pryces email address is momandmeaging@hotmail.com. S hell Point A dult D ay Health Program Caring for a loved one can be very rewarding, but finding time each week to run errands or go shopping may be a challenge. At Shell Point, the Hope Care Center an adult day health care program coordinated by Hope HealthCare Services is the ideal solution for caregivers who could benefit from having a place to take their loved one for a few hours of activity and socialization during the week. The program offers care to individuals of all ability levels, including those with speech impairment, limited mobility, memory deficiency, incontinence, and other unique needs. Hopes team of professionals lead therapeutic social and health activities, including light exercise sessions for strength and balance, games, gardening, art, music, pet therapy, and rest periods. Nutritious meals and snacks are also available. Individual care programs are based on each persons interests, hobbies and career history, so that daily activities can be customized, said Sue Stilson, Director of Hopes Adult Day Health Program. Hope opened the program at Shell Point last year, and it steadily gained popularity among independent living caregivers in the community. Barbara Cox, who moved to Shell Point with her husband Bill in 2002, has been his caregiver since 2007. She takes advantage of the program by bringing Bill to the Center when she has appointments with her physician or needs to go grocery shopping. I appreciate the flexibility, she said, adding that Bill looks forward to seeing the others in the group. Likewise, Bonnie and Glen Aspinwall, Shell Point residents since 2009, have the highest praise for the program. They affectionately call it The Club because of the camaraderie that develops among the participants. Having The Club is a marvelous benefit, said Bonnie, who brings Glen each week. I now have some time to take care of errands or call my sister, she said, before quickly pointing out another important aspect of the program: It gives him some independence from me! The Hope Care Center at Shell Point operates Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. near the rear entrance to The Pavilion at Shell Point. Half days of care are $45, and a full day is $80. Hourly plans are also available. A set schedule is not required, but participants must be pre-registered. For more information, call 855454-3102 or visit www.HopeHCS. org/AdultDayHealth. Hope HealthCare Services offers similar services on Winkler Avenue in Fort Myers and on Livingston Road in Naples.

Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAMLFeel a cold or flu coming on? Have sore or achy joints? Taking on the energies of others? Feel you have taken on too much and are ready to explode? Feel emotionally un-nourished? In transition between work or moving or just dealing with family? If any of these apply, than it is time to open the meridians, throw the toxins out of your system and pull in fresh energy to all your joints! Of course you are thinking Get real, what exercise can accomplish this? The exercise is Connecting Heaven and Earth. It is one of Donna Edens favorites, since it is so powerful. By encouraging our buddy Triple Warmer (remember that warrior of our body who protects our habit fields for survival and monitors our flight/fight/freeze response) to act as a Radiant Circuit (that energy system that is our joy-juice), we are literally pulling energy in from above through our head (Heaven) and from below through our feet at Kidney 1 meridian (Earth). After we pull the energy to us, our joints are replenished helping to prevent arthritis; boosts the immune system by stretching the torso and activating the Spleen meridian; and stimulates the removal of all that stale etheric sludge in our systems. Although in Energy Medicine, Donna comments she thought she created the exercise, her research disclosed this exercise or variations of it have existed for centuries in other countries including Egypt, China and India (page 266). So, doing this exercise releases all those excessive accumulated energies seeking to be expelled and makes space for new fresh subtle energy to enter so you can smile! The technique for Connecting Heaven and Earth follows: Step 1. Rub your hands together, shake them off and place them on thighs with fingers spread. Step 2. While inhaling through the nose, move your hands in a circle out from your sides and up over your head, bringing them to a prayer position in front of your heart. Exhale through the mouth. Step 3. While inhaling through the nose, stretch one hand up over your head with wrist bent so the palm is facing to the sky and stretch the other hand downward with wrist bent so the palm is facing the earth. Push with both palms, creating a strong stretch along the side while looking up at the heavens. Hold your breath during this stretch. When ready to release the breath, exhale through the mouth and return your hands to prayer position. Step 4. Switch arms and repeat with this side. After this set, do two or more sets. Step 5. Bend at the waist to fold toward the floor, with bent knees if necessary, and hang there for two breaths. Step 6. Slowly bring your body upright while you roll the energy to you with your hands from the feet to the head. I like to sprinkle that new fresh energy over my head and place my renewed energized hands wherever I feel I need a boost, perhaps my back or shoulder. Smile, do a little wiggle and start the day. Have fun with your energy! Next weeks topic is Clear Physical Sludge Reset Ileocecal/Houston Valves. If you have a questions for Karen, email her at ksemmelmanenergy@ gmail.com.

deaRPharmacistMethylation Problems Lead To 100s Of Diseasesby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: I met you at a book signing and you said something that stuck. You told me that if I have allergies, fatigue and multiple chemical sensitivities that I may have a methylation difficulty. You also told me not to take Green Coffee Bean extract. Can you please tell me more? SJ, Vail, Colorado Methylation its a big word that you probably dont think applies to you, however, read on because knowing about methylation could improve or save your life. Just look at the list of people who might have a methylation problem: Children with autism, anyone with a seizure disorder, neurological condition, Alzheimers disease, cancer, severe Lyme disease, chronic infections, diabetes, allergies, fertility issues, miscarriages, cardiovascular disease, chronic fatigue, anxiety or any psychiatric illness. Thats the short list. Oh, and if you are extremely sensitive to medicine or to nitrous gas (given by the dentist), you might have a methylation problem, too. You see, as humans, we all have an enzymatic pathway going on in our body at all times called methylation. It has numerous life-sustaining functions. One of its primary purposes is to convert folate from your meals into glutathione, a potent antioxidant which neutralizes poisons. A problem any where along this metabolic pathway spells illness. My concern is that your symptoms are being heavily medicated when its just a problem of methylation that can be addressed by a physician in-the-know. Methylation snps (pronounced snips) are genetic problems, but its not always a genetic problem. About 45 percent of people have a genetic issue, but blockages in this pathway can happen if you take certain medications or have certain nutrient deficiencies. Green coffee bean extract is incredibly high in catechols, and those block methylation! Same deal with potatoes (regular or sweet), tea and coffee. Testing for methylation is often covered by insurance. Because people with a methylation difficulty have trouble eliminating poisons, they build up in the body and thats what causes all the health concerns. Opening up the road block helps clear your body of poisons and that should reduce symptoms. If you cant methylate properly, you cannot produce CoQ10, carnitine, creatine or ATP (energy). You will also have nerve pain. Thats because the methylation process helps make the protective wrapping around your nerves. Some medications are what I call drug muggers of nutrients which are needed for the methylation process. Among them are methotrexate, metformin, antacids, acid blockers, estrogen-containing drugs and nitrous oxide. Drinking alcohol will pretty much shut down your methylation. Im out of space here, so if youd like more information about testing and supportive supplements, sign up for my free newsletter and Ill send you details. By the way, some doctors recommend high dose folic acid and vitamin B12, but this is not always helpful and can, in fact, be harmful. Details will be sent via my newsletter and if youve signed up for it in the past, you dont need to do so again. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition. Suzy Cohen is the author of The 24-Hour Pharmacist and is a registered pharmacist. To contact her, visit www. dearpharmacist.com. From page 6BRotary Happeningsat Shell Point. Dr. Clarks topic for the morning focused on taking a holistic approach to caregiving. Medicines, vitamins, minerals and herbs... oh my! What to take, what not to take, when to take it, when not to take it, how much to take? Each answer is unique to the individual. Good medical testing is important and then reading your own body as to the response to medications and supplements you are taking is extremely important. This is complicated; no wonder you need a doctorate to explain this stuff. Be careful with your medications and dont overmedicate. Carol spoke a great deal about vitamins and their importance for healthy body function and tissue repair. She went through most of the vitamins and minerals and what problems deficiency can cause. She stated, Of course, healthy eating and a good exercise routine is the frontline approach to good health, but aging sometime interferes with both so then what? If you are having concerns, talk to your health care professionals. Vitamins can supplement deficiencies in your body, but again be careful, check for reactions with your medications. Live right, eat right, live well it all helps, but take your vitamins, too. Ben Franklin once said, An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

I am a 5-yearold spayed female chocolate Labrador retriever mix. If I could speak, I would tell you I want to go home. When I first arrived here, I just whined and my eyes said something was wrong. I just wondered why a good dog could be left at the shelter. It all made sense later when the staff found my owner and he didnt come in to get me. I was just sad. Im really an awesome dog. I love the water, like to play ball, walk nicely on a leash, know commands... and Im super intelligent! My adoption fee is $10 (regularly $75) during Animal Services Freedom Friends Adoption Promotion. Hello, my name is Special. I am a 1-year-old female brown tabby with white socks domestic short hair.
