7 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 2, 2013 Miss Outstanding Teen America Hopeful Training On Sanibelby Jim GeorgeIt takes more than beauty to win a beauty contest these days. Intelligence, talent, common sense and the ability to think on your feet all weigh heavily into a judges decision. So says Gari Lewis, a Sanibel resident and former Miss Maine. Lewis will host and train Daphne Ellis, 16, who will compete in the Miss Outstanding Teen America pageant in Orlando on August 13 through 17. The pageant is a pre-pageant for younger girls ages 13 to 17 to the Miss America Scholarship Pageant, which is 91 years old. According to Lewis, millions of dollars each year are contributed to helping young women achieve their educational goals. Ellis is currently Miss Maine Outstanding Teen. She lives on a flower farm with her grandmother. From August 2 through 9, Ms. Ellis from Turner, Maine will spend her days on Sanibel with Lewis practicing her runway walk, putting the final touches on her national competition wardrobe, reading about current events, answering questions to help her with the judges interviews and rehearsing her talent segment an original song she composed and will play on the piano titled, How can I keep from singing? Lewis has arranged local television interviews and appearances for the teen. Having a week with me down here will be a great way for Daphne to acclimate herself to the Florida sunshine. Well be working hard but well also be enjoying this lovely island, Lewis said. She will accompany the teen to Orlando. Lewis has been volunteering with the Miss America Scholarship program for almost 30 years and has spent her career as a fashion designer, teacher and consultant. Ellis is not your typical teen ager. She plays the piano and drums; shes a songwriter and poet; draws and paints for relaxation; loves Latin; teaches dance to 7and 8-year-olds; models; dances intensively six days a week and has traveled in Europe and many U.S. states. Along with her training by Lewis, all of those experiences will be the underpinning of her appearance and possible success in the Orlando pageant. Each contestant establishes her platform for the competition and for her reign, if she wins. For Ellis, its to show everyone that no matter who they are, they are beautiful and just as important as another. Ill be remembered for showing kids and even adults, that the only expectations they should live up to are their own. Founded in 2005, Miss Americas Outstanding Teen, Inc. has become one of the top scholarship providers for teen girls in the United States. All of the participants, on the local, state and national levels, have been the recipients of valuable scholarship assistance upon graduation from high school. The organization has made available almost $4,000,000 in cash and in-kind scholarships. As of September 2012, they have written scholarship checks for over $611,000 to more than 120 different colleges and universities across the country. All scholarships are paid directly to the institution attended by the participants and cover tuition, books, and room and board. There are no individual cash payments.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 2, 20138 Docents Sweat It Out For The Last Days Of SeasonThe Sanibel Historical Museum and Village closes for the season after August 3 and reopens November 6 on full-time hours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Through the sweltering summer months, the museum is staffed by a small but talented group of volunteers who work through the heat to serve the museums visitors. Many of our docents and volunteers return to their home bases for the summer, said museum manager Emilie Alfino. We miss them and wish them a happy summer, and then we try to staff the museum as best we can. And we do okay because we have a dedicated core group of about 15 people available to work all or part of the summer months. Of course, they have to work harder and more often as the need is greater, but many tell me they actually enjoy it more. During the summer, I have more time to interact with the customers and share some of the very intimate times of their lives, said Annette Cantalupo, who most often works in the old Bailey General Store. People start telling me about something or other that reminds them of their childhood. I learn so many things about history from the customers. But I love being here in the winter, too, when its busy, busy, busy. Barbara Broadhurst, working in the Rutland House on one of the hottest, most humid days of the summer so far, said, In the summer, youre busy from the time you get here until the time you leave, because were working with fewer docents. The time flies. I like to talk to a lot of Floridians who visit us in the summer. I like to talk to them about their areas and their history. We always get a nice group of people coming in the summertime. Dave Richard, who serves as a tour guide during season, also works during some summer months. I find that as our summer temperatures and humidity begin to rise, its easier for museum visitors to experience and appreciate the design features of the pioneer cracker houses that kept early Sanibel residents as comfortable as could be in those days before air conditioning, electricity or mosquito control. The first thing that came to mind for docent Anita Smith, who worked during the early summer months, was this: Its sitting on the porch waiting for the guests to arrive. And the weather is gorgeous. The village is at 950 Dunlop Road. Call 472-4648 or visit www.sanibelmuseum.org.

The preschool has also been authorized as a VPK provider. Sanibel Christian Preschool provides children 3 years old and Pre-K with a warm, welcoming and nurturing environment. The program follows the Lee County School System academic year, and runs from 8 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. After school care is available on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays for an additional fee. As a ministry of the Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ, the schools practices and direction are based on the assumption that each student is a beloved child of God. They welcome and accept students and parents from any race, color, national, religious or ethnic origin. Students will be invited to share their familys heritage and traditions with the other students through such activities as the Fridays Around The World. Their program is developmentally challenging and nurtures the spiritual, emotional, physical, intellectual and artistic needs of each student. The preschool director, Laura Miltner, is already known to many parents and children in the community as a warm, open, energetic and creative teacher. Elizabeth Kindt, also known to many parents, joins her as the teacher for 3 year olds. There are a few openings left for students for the school year beginning on August 8.

One program was held at Our Mothers Home, a foster home for young girls with babies. This is the second year in a row that HTAP has conducted the program there. Two programs were held at the Heights Foundation Community Center one in the spring afterschool program and one in the Summer Camp program. Another was a first-time venture with the Boys and Girls Club of Lee County, held at the Pueblo Bonito Clubhouse in Bonita Spring. About 40 children attended these programs and they created 10 large paintings. At each of the programs, the girls are taught about the dangers of human trafficking to themselves and others. They are taught the lures used to draw girls into trafficking and the ways they can avoid becoming a victim. They are also taught how art has been used for centuries as a tool of social change. They then create large paintings (3 feet x 4 feet) which are later available for exhibition. Over the past 3.5 years, a total of 37 paintings have been created as well as a play and photography and poetry projects. Boys have participated in the TIPS program (Trafficking Interactive Prevention Simulation) and earlier ARTREACH programs. HTAPs mission is to build awareness of human trafficking to all, to provide trainings for professionals and to develop programs and resources which can be shared with other organizations. ARTREACH is one of the programs which have been duplicated through Train The Training programs around the country and in Florida. ARTREACH paintings are reproduced in banner form which are often displayed locally or lent for display at awareness events or conferences around the country. A banner is made for each facility which hosts a program and postcards featuring the artwork and paintings which are used for training purposes. HTAP is supported in part by local Zonta Clubs, St. Michaels and All Angels Church, Wells-Fargo, Eileen Fisher and the Southwest Florida Community Foundation and by generous donations from individuals in the Sanibel community. It currently operates from an office on Sanibel and one in Fort Myers. For more information, send an email to info@humantraffickingawareness. org or call 415-2635.

To advertise in the Island Sun Call 395-1213 Recognizing The Need For (And Benefit Of) Coastal Protectionsubmitted by Ken and Kate GooderhamA new study has attempted to quantify the risks inherent in climate change from rising tides and stronger storms, as a means to encourage preservation of the natural resources that can help protect coastal ecosystems and communities a refreshing way to reframe to coastal debate that, if prudent voices prevail, should be taken even further to guide future coastal policy and planning. The study, outlined in an article published in the Nature Climate Change journal, cites the risk posed to the U.S. coastlines from the higher seas and more severe storms many expect as a consequence of climate change, putting real numbers on the people and populations which could be at risk if projections turn into reality. The authors then posit how natural habitats sand dunes, coral reefs, sea grasses, mangrove fringes, etc. could offer significant coastal protections at a lower cost if they are not allowed to dwindle and die as seas rise and shorelines harden. Using real numbers and actual science to frame this issue (which is too often debated with emotions and politics as the main drivers), is welcome, as is recognizing the value of the coast (such as 23 of the 25 most densely populated counties are coastal) and the need to better acknowledge the protective value of any coastal habitat that puts more distance between storm waves and upland infrastructure. Developing a Coastal Hazards Index that can graphically portray the countys coastlines at greatest risk is also useful, quickly communicating both the breadth and severity of any areas risk in a way the lay person can grasp. But the presumption that the only choices are shoreline hardening or habitat preservation is too black and white for our real coastal world. Many coastal communities (and their governmental entities) have taken hardening out of the coastal toolbox, having lived through the destructive days of seawalls and groins as the lone coastal solution to sand loss. In some areas, coastal structures of any stripe are banned; in others, they are allowed only as part of an engineered solution that capitalizes on their strengths and mitigates their other impacts. Also, the focus on preservation of existing habitats needs to be joined with a drive to restore lost habitats, so we dont just draw a line in the sand policy-wise but work to replace any beneficial protections lost over time. And lets add wide beaches as another appropriate coastal protection worthy of preservation and restoration, recognizing their value in keeping storm waves at bay and adding more elevation in response to rising seas. (The habitat benefit which wide beaches offer is just icing on the natural cake.) Finally, every coastal professional can join in the studys implied call for further research into the impacts and options in coastal protection particularly work that balances the needs and demands of all coastal stakeholders in an effort to task science and sense to develop sustainable solutions in anticipation of whatever changes climate ends up blowing our way. The same measures that can protect coastal communities from storm damage will also build a buffer against any rise in sea level, allowing us to implement protections that address the inevitable (such as storms) as well as the unknown (such as rising seas). A good first step is to acknowledge the need for and benefit of coastal protection, with the imperative that science (rather than emotion) leads the way. This study appears to be a good start.

But each of the flowers is only one-sixteenth of an inch across, so they go largely unnoticed, except by butterflies and bees. The native mat-forming wildflower is a larval food for the common buckeye, White peacock, and phaon crescent butterflies and a nectar source for other species. The plants prosaic common names, which include capeweed, mat-grass, and turkey tangle fogfruit, do nothing to enhance its appeal. Each flower stalk is topped by a cylindrical flowerhead with a rich purple center. Yellow-throated white to lavender flowers encircle the center and bloom throughout the year. The term nodiflora, which means knotted, refers to this tight structure. The plant spreads by rooted nodes, with the flower stalks growing up to six inches tall. The narrow toothed leaves measure about an inch long. Creeping Charlie is credited with a host of medicinal benefits. It is used as a tea, leaf paste, and root juice in treating wounds, hookworm, fever, ulcers, and other ailments. This groundcover is common in lawns, disturbed sites, and roadsides. If it creeps into your yard, consider letting it flourish for the butterflies. Propagate it by dividing the rootball, with stem cuttings, or from seeds. It can even be used as a hanging plant.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 2, 201320 Conditions Made For Some Tough Days Fishingby Capt. Matt MitchellNasty brown water and strong northwest winds really did a number on the fishing action for a few days this week. Add to that slow moving outgoing tides being held up by the wind and I cant think of any time recently when I struggled quite so badly to catch very few fish. Once the winds relaxed and the tides got better, fishing picked right back up with catch and release snook action being the most consistent bite. Snook could be caught most days this week in good numbers in the passes. With this being the best bite in town and not many other options with poor tides and windy conditions, the amount of boat traffic in the passes has been a little crazy. If everyone is on the same page drifting the passes, its been manageable and can be fun watching other boats hook up. With 10 to 20 boats all making the same drift of a pass, it can quickly be wrecked by one boat not sticking to the program. Late afternoon incoming tides did produce a few days of good mangrove snook action. The key for me was finding a deeper windblown shoreline that had the tide moving in the same direction as the wind. The big snook of the week caught on my boat was a 17-pound 37-inch snook that was taken on the first cast on such a shoreline. One little windblown mangrove point produced three slot or better sized snook which quickly jumped on the large tail hooked pinfish we were pitching up under the bushes. With poor daytime redfish tides, this week I really did not target them. We did catch a few reds in the mid to upper 20-inch class while drifting the passes for snook. As morning high tides improve, the morning redfish bite should get a whole lot better this week. Trout fishing this week was just about impossible with the dirty stirred up water. Even when I did find some clearer water around the inside of the passes, we just could not get it going. Running as far north as Cayo Costa on a tough day of fishing this week, there was no clean or even clearer water to be found anywhere in the sound. After a few more calm days though, our water color should gradually start to improve. Another option during the calmer days this week was gag grouper fishing in and around the deeper passes. Drifting across the drop offs and structure with a large pinfish hooked up on a 7/0 circle caught limits of gags up to 28 inches. When the tide was moving fast, often it would take as much as a sixto eight-ounce weight to keep the bait straight up and down on the bottom. Heavy tackle is a must for this if you hope to pull these hard fighting grouper away from the underwater structure. One plus of the dirty water is you could use 80-pound leader and still get bites. Strong northwest winds put an end to this action in the passes as it simply got too rough for a few days. There are several of my trips this week that I would like to forget ever happened. We never got skunked but action was very slow. Days like this are tough when basically everything is going against you and the conditions give you very few options. As a fishing guide on days like this, you work so much harder and just feel beat up at the end of a trip, as you always want your clients to catch fish. Capt. Matt Mitchell has been fishing local waters since he moved to Sanibel in 1980. He now lives in St. James City and works as a back country fishing guide.

According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, coyotes successfully expanded their natural range to the Southeast in the 1960s, reaching northern Florida in the 1970s. One study indicates that by 1988, 48 out of 67 Florida counties reported having coyote populations. Two beautiful, shy female coyote pups are being treated at CROW. Each was found off-island. One of the pups, patient #1754, arrived with a fractured hind leg, likely the result of being hit by a motorist. As a youngster growing at a very rapid pace, Dr. Heather initially implemented a schedule to change the injured pups cast every two weeks. However, Dr. Heather or Dr. Kristen quietly walk outside to the coyotes enclosure daily to sneak a quick peak at the cast to ensure that it is holding up to the elements. We would totally stress her out if we took her out each day; we would stress her out and the other one out, noted Dr. Kristen. Both coyotes have been vaccinated against distemper, a viral infection that affects the respiratory, gastrointestinal and central nervous system of many carnivorous species of wildlife and certain domestic animals. They were also vaccinated against parvovirus, canine adenovirus and dewormed, making them parasite free. Dr. Heather will soon vaccinate them against rabies. As an invasive species with a large territorial range, there is a concern about the impact that coyotes may have on indigenous species of the Sunshine State; they are either potential competitors for food or predators. Dr. Heather is currently searching for a qualified wildlife educational facility to adopt both coyotes, as federal law prohibits CROW from releasing them into the wild due to their invasive species status. Once the two coyote pups have fully recovered from their injuries and are relocated, they will serve as examples to people interested in learning about wild animals, their habitats and the role each creature (and human) plays in maintaining a healthy, balanced ecosystem.

23 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 2, 2013Birds Eye ViewDeath Is Just A Part Of Lifeby Mark Bird WestallLast week, I received a call from a very nice lady who is active in some of the various wildlife programs on Sanibel. Like many who come to Sanibel and get involved with the islands environmental ethic, she has a great appreciation and love for all things wild. Her reason for calling me was because she was concerned about a runt osprey chick that seemed to be remaining on the nest long after its sibling had fledged and both parents were being seen less and less at the nest. I agreed that the middle of July was quite late for there to be young still in the nest and it was possible that this youngster wasnt going to make it. However, trying to give the concerned caller a glimpse of hope, I also mentioned that with the cold weather we had experienced earlier in the winter, several nests on the island had lost their first clutch of eggs and, subsequently, double-clutched, resulting in some of the young fledging much later than normal. So, maybe this chick could still make it. But then she asked the question that is the most difficult one for me to answer honestly, but also I believe, must be answered honestly: Is there anything that we can do? I hesitated in giving my answer because I dont want to sound cruel and uncaring, but eventually I replied, Sometimes you just have to let nature take its course. I think most of us that get involved with wildlife observation or work, do so because of our love of the wild things we watch or take care of. And nobody wants to see those creatures experience pain and suffering. I remember being asked to drive to the mainland one night shortly after I moved here and pick up an injured barn owl that someone found on the ground, keep it warm and secure for the night, and take it to CROW (the islands wildlife hospital) the next morning. I had never seen a barn owl up close before. It was beautiful and I was beside myself. It didnt seem to be seriously injured; no obvious broken bones and it just stood on my gloved hand and looked at me with those big, dark eyes. I was proud to be its knight in shining armor who was going to rescue it and help it return to the wild. But early the next morning when I peeked in the carrying cage to check on it... it was dead! My heart was broken. How could something so fascinating die so easily? Should I have done something different? I had followed the instructions that were given to me, but was it my fault this beautiful creature was dead? Unfortunately since that time, I have had to watch many beautiful creatures die; animals that left this world much earlier than they should have. But it was that barn owl that gave me one of the most important lessons of my life: death is just a part of life. I may not like to see it and I may try my best to keep it from happening, but when it does happen, I take a moment to note what has happened, and then move on. (I know this sounds crazy, but I even do that when I kill a mosquito thats sucking out my blood). I cant tell you how many times in the early days of my involvement with the ospreys on Sanibel that I would go out in a raging thunderstorm and start looking underneath some precarious nest full of chicks that I just knew would fall during the storm. And many times I would find the nest destroyed on the ground and the wet young still alive. But sometimes, I would be too late and I would have to settle with the understanding that I did my best. Today, ospreys are doing really well as a species so we probably can lose a chick or two and the population will do just fine. We have to look at the whole picture; is a certain species or population on the edge? If it is, then every individual within that species or population becomes more important. If it isnt, then there has to be some mortality in order for the whole population to remain healthy and stable. It drives me crazy when I hear some animal lover say, Oh, dont shoot Bambi! Bambis too cute. OK, so youd rather see Bambi overpopulate an area and starve to death, defoliating all the surrounding vegetation in the process. Now, its important to say that I dont want to see some guy with an AK-47 and a six-pack of beer shooting everything that moves. But if some form of harvesting does not happen to deer populations, then the system as a whole suffers and, eventually, so do the deer. What it comes down to, Ive said many times its all about balance. Everything has a purpose, but that doesnt mean everything will live forever. Remember, if given a choice, I can guarantee the fish that is eaten by an osprey would rather still be swimming around feeding on its own prey instead of being torn to pieces by the osprey.continued on page 25 I CANNOT TELL A LIE...IT'S SIMPLY THE BEST...

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 2, 201324 An Audubon Florida Special PlaceMatheson Hammock Parkby Roger L. HammerThe National Gold Medal Awardwinning Miami-Dade Parks & Recreation Department was formed in 1930 with Matheson Hammock as its very first park. The initial 80 acres was a gift to Dade County by a wealthy pioneer, William J. Matheson. The park was developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps and designed by William Lyman Phillips, the famed architect who would later design Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, Bok Tower Gardens and McKee Botanical Gardens. This was fortunate because Phillips penned, in longhand, The mangrove swamp is to most humans a hateful hostile growth. Yet, as a forest type, mangrove [habitat] is unique; and where in a given situation such as this [Matheson Hammock Park], the swamp can be assigned an important role in the total parks effect, and can be regarded and managed sympathetically. The preservation and passing down of it to posterity would seem an act of considerable cultural significance. Matheson Hammock Park now spans 630 acres and harbors a popular marina, restaurant, picnic areas and open shorelines along Biscayne Bay, where park visitors come to fish, canoe, kayak, sailboard or simply relax. But theres a lesservisited part of the park that even local residents scarcely know exists. On the west side of Old Cutler Road, across from the bustling marina, is Matheson Hammock, the forest. Hammocks are islands of hardwood forest trees, surrounded by a differing vegetation type, and there are more than 100 hammocks on Long Pine Key in Everglades National Park. Matheson Hammock was visited by some of South Floridas earliest botanists, most notably John Kunkel Small, an eminent authority on John Ogden, Lynn Scarlett, former Deputy Secretary, U.S. Department of the Interior, and Roger Hammer birding at Matheson Hammock photos by Roger Hamme Rare clamshell orchid New Business of the Year 3111 West Gulf Drive, Sanibel Gift Cards Available Call 239472 -4559 TraditionsOnTheBeach.com Specializing in weddings, private parties and corporate events 1551 Periwinkle Way I 472-7242 Lunch 113 I Happy Hour 36 I Dinner 59:30Dinner reservations suggested DINING SHOPPING COCKTAILS AWARD-WINNING BISTRO CUISINE JEWELRY, CLOTHING, BOOKS & GIFTS FINE WINES, BEERS & HAPPY HOUR MENU Live!

25 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 2, 2013the flora of the southeastern states. Small once noted that there were vastly more wild clamshell orchids in Matheson Hammock than hed seen anywhere else. Although the clamshell orchids have entirely disappeared due to collecting, periodic freezes and hurricanes, the hammock remains floristically rich. A loop trail leads visitors through the hammock and the trailhead is directly across the street from the entrance to the marina side of the park. Some of my fondest memories of Matheson Hammock Park are birding there with my friend, next-door neighbor and fellow rum connoisseur John Ogden. He was working on the Bird Oases Project spearheaded by Florida Audubon Society, and later transferred to Tropical Audubon Society. John and I would spend several hours once a day each week during spring and fall migration. Our task was to not only identify migratory songbirds but also identify the trees and shrubs they were visiting, and what the birds were doing. The outcome of the project is that we now have a much better understanding of which migratory birds utilize which specific plants the most, and why. Some birds, we learned, were seeking insects, while others were feasting on fruits, sipping nectar, or gulping down entire flowers bugs, nectar, pollen and all. Johns passing in March 2012 was a great loss to the birding world, and to anyone who had the good fortune to know him. Matheson Hammock is regarded as one of the hot birding spots in the Miami area for local birders and migratory birders as well. When migratory birds fly over metropolitan Miami, green spaces such as Matheson Hammock stand out as inviting stopovers; a place to rest, feed and rejuvenate for the long trip south, or north, depending on the season. It should come as no surprise that Matheson Hammock is included along the Great Florida Birding Trail, a self-guided 2,000mile highway trail established by the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission. Make Matheson Hammock one of your stops where you can find an exciting array of birds as well as a peaceful place among the hustle and bustle of Miami. This column is one in a series from AUDUBON FLORIDA. Roger L. Hammer is an award winning professional naturalist, author and photographer. For more information about the Matheson Hammock Park, see www. miamidade.gov/parks/. From page 23Death Part Of LifeMy lady friend who called me about the osprey chick listened to my comments about how death was just as important as life is, and then she said, Well, thank you so much for talking to me. I was thinking that I should just accept what I was seeing and move on, but I wanted to hear that from you. And that gives me hope for our species; we should follow our hearts, but listen to our wisdom.

River Cruises Return For Summer At Edison FordThe Edison & Ford Winter Estates and Captiva Cruises are offering short cruises on the Caloosahatchee River and tours of Edison Ford on Sundays and Mondays at 10 a.m., 11 a.m., noon and 1 p.m. The cruise and tour is a great way to learn about the ecology and history of the river that the Edison and Ford families explored and fished. In 1886, Thomas Edison purchased 15 acres along the Caloosahatchee and built Seminole Lodge, his stunning winter estate facing the river. He also built a 1,800 foot long wood pier with entertaining areas and a boathouse for his electric launch, the Reliance. Today, visitors to the Edison & Ford Winter Estates will also tour the Caloosahatchee on a modern flat-bottom vessel complete with awnings and the same leisurely travel agenda. The river cruises are a great way to experience the history of this important river and the ecology and environmental significance to Southwest Florida. Cost for Edison Ford members: adults are $20, children 12 and under are $15; non-members: adults are $40, children 12 and under are $30. Admission includes an audio tour of the Edison Ford homes, gardens, lab and museum as well as an historian-led boat cruise of the Caloosahatchee River.

4B ISLAND SUN AUGUST 2, 2013 American Red Cross Launches New App To Recruit VolunteersThe American Red Cross today launched the Team Red Cross App, which allows people to sign up to help, get an overview on basic tasks and receive notifications about Red Cross disaster volunteer opportunities in their community. When people see an emergency happening in their community, they often want to help but may not know how, said John Cain, director of volunteer services, Florida Southern Gulf Region. The Team Red Cross App provides an easy and quick way for people to sign up to help the Red Cross and support their community. Once users download the app, they create an account. Then they learn about different jobs, such as working in a warehouse, handing out supplies or assisting with feeding. When the Red Cross has a need for volunteers, the app will notify users based on their location. Potential volunteers can instantly accept or decline the opportunity. The Red Cross is encouraging the public to download the app before a disaster strikes in Collier, Lee, Hendry or Glades Counties so volunteers can help immediately. The app is free and designed for iPhone and Android smart phones and tablets. Additional features include: at the touch of a button. This is the seventh in a series of highly successful Red Cross apps, which are now on more than three million mobile devices across the country. A recent Red Cross survey shows that apps are now tied with social media as the fourth most popular way to get information during emergencies behind TV, radio and online news sites. Nearly one-fifth of Americans say theyve received some kind of emergency information from an app theyve downloaded, making the Red Cross apps an important way for the public to get ready for disasters. The app can be found in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store by searching for American Red Cross or by going to redcross.org/mobileapps.

5B ISLAND SUN AUGUST 2, 2013Rotary Happenings submitted by S hirley JewellCEO and President of Disabled Veterans Insurance Careers, Inc. (DVIC) Gary Bryant, lieutenant colonel of the U.S. Army (retired), spoke to the club this week. The DVIC is a U.S. disabled military veterans training and job placement opportunity program. Bryant retired from active military duty after 20 years serving our country. A career highlight was serving in headquarters of U.S. Central Command in Saudi Arabia on the staff of General Norman Schwarzkopf during Desert Shield and Desert Storm. After retiring from the army, he spent five years as officer in charge of the Jr. ROTC program for the School District of Lee County until 1999. He served as president and CEO of Good Wheels, Inc., a not-for profit agency in Fort Myers, serving the disabled and disadvantaged. During this time, he was appointed to serve on the Florida Commission for the Transportation Disadvantaged and was elected to the statewide office of president, Florida Association of Community Transportation Systems. Many of our military veterans are returning home with life-changing disabilities. Finding a purposeful life beyond the military is a major challenge and job opportunities are limited. Founded in Fort Myers in 2011, DVICs goal is to provide employment opportunities in the insur ance business for disabled veterans. DVIC realizes that many of our returning disabled men and women have mobility problems so they designed a program that uses computer technology to provide all training at home. DVICs business model embraces a virtual office so that the disabled veteran will be able to work from home or other remote location. This virtual office aspect mimics the vir tual classroom in which disabled veterans will be educated and trained. The combination of a virtual classroom and virtual office makes this endeavor perfect for disabled veterans. The per person cost of setting up a home office for the veteran and all training material and support is $50,000. Currently, the organization has 25 par ticipants; 75 percent are estimated to achieve the goal of completing the year course, receiving their insurance agent licenses and job placement. Financial support for the program presently comes from donations and grants. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary welcomed back Veronica Valencia, our Dick Aldrich Scholarship winner, and got a chance to catch up with her before she headed back to University of South Florida for her junior year. Veronica is an impressive young women and her determination to succeed in life is evident by her approach to learning. She not only is an outstanding student but she finds ways to expand her knowledge through programs offered at the school. This summer, she spent six weeks in China participating in USFs Tier 1 China Learning & Cultural Exchange program. This is a full emer gence program. The students studied the Chinese language and use it with no translators during classroom work and during travel. Veronica is planning on a career in the medical profession and hopes her ability to speak several languages will broaden her opportunities. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets at 7 a.m. every Friday at The Dunes Golf and Tennis Club, 949 Sand Castle Road.

6B ISLAND SUN AUGUST 2, 2013 T arpon Bay Explorers D onate Revenues To Wildland Firefighters FoundationNineteen Granite Mountain Hotshot Firefighters were killed fighting the Yarnell Hill Fire in Arizona on June 30. When the owners of Tarpon Bay Explorers heard about this tragedy, they decided it was time for another fundraiser. So Saturday, July 20 was chosen, and the Explorers set out to get as many people as possible out on the tours and rentals that day so they could donate all the tour and rental revenues to the Wildland Firefighters Foundation (www. wffoundation.org). The day started out with full standup paddleboard and kayak eco-tours. Janice, Heidi and Lauren of the Southwest Florida Standup Paddleboard Club then launched to paddle to Blind Pass, and the club donated $100. In the afternoon, the Howard family rented kayaks and donated an additional $100 on top of the rental fee. The final program of the day was the sunset evening cruise at 6 p.m. The total of all revenues and additional donations for the day at Tarpon Bay was $5070.90. The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and the National Parks Service also held a chili cook-off fundraiser down at the Golden Gate Fire Department the same day and raised just over $6,000, so the total fundraising efforts generated more than $11,000.

11B ISLAND SUN AUGUST 2, 2013 Red Sox Fans Arent Shedding Tears Over Yankee Mess Involving A-Rodby Ed FrankAs the Major League Baseball season moves into the final third of the 2013 season, the Boston Red Sox faithful and they number in the tens of thousands here in Southwest Florida are in a state euphoria for two principal reasons. 1. Boston continues to ride atop the American League Eastern Division as they have for nearly the entire season. (The red-hot Tampa Bay Rays, winners of eight of their last 10 games, trailed Boston by just a half-game as the week began.) 2. Their bitter rival New York Yankees are not only way down in fourth place in the division, trailing Boston by 7-1/2 games, but are in a mess involving Alex Rodriquez, who likely faces a long suspension involving his alleged use of performance enhancing drugs. The A-Rod case is really a high stakes affair that in some ways could prove both a positive and a negative for the Yankees. Reports earlier this week indicated that A-Rods suspension could be handed down as early as this week a suspension that could run the remainder of this season, next season and possibly even a lifetime suspension. Remember, this is not the first time that Rodriquez has been tainted for using PEDs. A lifetime ban would potentially save the Yankees an estimated $98 million, the balance they owe him from a 10-year, $275 million contract signed in 2007. Conversely, the weak-hitting Yankees desperately need the offense A-Rod could provide. The 38-year-old third-baseman is fifth on the all-time home run list with 647 dingers. Rodriquez is one of 15 to 20 players that reportedly have been linked to the nowclosed Biogenesis clinic, a South Florida operation run by Anthony Bosch, who has cooperated with Major League Baseball investigators. Just recently, Milwaukee outfielder Ryan Braun accepted a 65-game suspension the remainder of the season for his involvement with Biogenesis. Just when we thought the ugly scandal of baseball and drugs was behind us, the Biogenesis mess surfaces. Youve got to wonder when it will stop and when these millionaire players will learn. Most likely, the Red Sox Nation isnt crying over the dilemma facing the Yankees. Twins Birth For Twins Joe Mauer The royal birth in England was upstaged in Minneapolis last week when the Twins All-Star Joe Mauer and his wife, Maddie, became parents of twin girls, Maren Virginia and Emily Teresa. And the proud papa Joe barely made it to the delivery room after a cross-country charter flight from Anaheim, California, where the Twins were playing. The original due date was not until the end of August, but Mauer learned last Wednesday during batting practice that his wife was headed to the hospital. After a mad scramble to arrange a charter, he arrived just in time to witness the birth without much time to spare. Both girls weighed 4 pounds, 15 ounces and are doing fine as are mother and father. Under Major League collective bargaining agreement, players are allowed three days paternity leave with pay. If more than three days are needed, the player has to be placed on the restricted list without pay. Mauer is earning $23 million this year $125,683 a day. SPORTS QUIZ 1. In 2012, Matt Harrison tied the mark for most victories in a season by a Texas Rangers left-hander. Who else holds the record? 2. Who was the last Reds pitcher before Homer Bailey in 2012 to toss a nohitter? 3. In 2012, Washingtons Robert Griffith III had the fourth-highest passing yards (320) by a quarterback in his NFL debut.

One of the most dreaded words in a pet owners vocabulary. These fetid creatures have been a plague (liter ally) to man and animal throughout history. While fleas rarely cause the life threatening illnesses of days gone by, they are still a common source of mor bidity, disease and disgust in our modern world. These tenacious creatures can jump three feet, crawl right through your screen, and lay up to 25 eggs per day. In general, they prefer pets to people, but have been known to feed on pet owners. Even though bubonic plague in humans, for which fleas are the vector, is rarely seen today, these critters can still cause illness. When ingested by pets, they carry the most common tapeworm seen in dogs and cats. When present in large numbers, these blood sucking parasites can cause anemia, and in severe cases death, with puppies and kittens being most affected. Adult dogs and cats can develop allergies to flea saliva, setting off self-mutilation in the form of scratching and itching. This results in infected skin, fur loss and a malodorous pet. Highly allergic pets can be affected by only a few flea bites per week. Pet owners can be subject to itchy pets and sleepless nights. Flea eggs on the bed can lead to pulling back the sheets and seeing half-inch flea larvae doing push-ups before your eyes.There was a time when I would spend half of my Saturday mornings explaining flea control to clients. Treatments were directed toward the yard, the house and the pet, with none of them working well. Yard treatments were ineffective, house treatments included exterminators and foggers, and flea dips were sometimes toxic to pets as well as the fleas. There was no silver bullet when it came to flea control.Things began to change with the introduction of the drug program in the mid-1990s. This insect growth regulator only killed flea offspring, but it worked as advertised and brought relief to millions of pets and their owners. There was a lag time between treatment and results, but pet owners finally had a safe product they could believe in. Science soon brought us a new generation of topical treatments which proved safe and effective in controlling fleas. Instead of 20 minute sermons on flea control, I was able to condense my presentation to, Get a box of this product. All of the fleas, be they adults or new hatchlings, needed to eat. When they jumped on treated pets, they were, in most cases, dead before they could bite or lay eggs. The flea life cycle would be broken and life for pets, pet owners and veterinarians (as they had happy clients) continued on page 17B Insurance Tip Rising Flood Insurance Ratesby Marge MeekYouve probably heard about skyrocketing flood insurance rates over the last several months and the beginning of those rate increases will begin on October 1. The first homes to be hit will be houses known as PreFIRM. On our islands, those houses are typically ground level homes that were built before federal flood regulations went into effect. On Sanibel, that date was April 1979; on Captiva, that date was August 1984. Those homes flood insurance were subsidized to help people afford federal flood insurance, because they were built before flood protection was defined. The government is eliminating those subsidies. Here is an example of how their flood rates will jump when the new law goes into effect on October 1. Currently, Pre-FIRM houses dont require elevation certificates to obtain flood insurance, but a homeowner will pay more if the house is owned by a non-primary resident. In my example at maximum coverage, the premium would be just over $3,000 for non-primary and just over $2,700 for a resident owner. After October 1, any sales on PreFIRM homes will require a surveyors elevation certificate showing if the house was built below the base flood elevation. No longer would primary or non-primary residents pay different premium, because the houses will be accurately rated. It stands to reason our ground level homes are below what is considered base flood elevation as Post-FIRM houses are raised or elevated. In this example, I assumed the house was five feet below the required flood elevation and the increased premium came in at $12,600. While this certainly impacts the sales of these homes, the legislation goes further by looking at the puchase date. Pre-FIRM home flood insurance pur chased after July 6, 2012 also could see rate increases. When the policy renews after October 1, 2013, the owner must get an elevation certificate to have his flood insurance renewed. These homes will have a 25 percent increase annually until the program feels they are actuarially rated or the elevation certificate rating is less expensive. This is the beginning of rate increases and changing rules that will affect our flood premiums. There is Cassidy Amendment that passed the House and has moved to the Senate that would delay for one year additional parts of National Flood Insurance Program. I ask you to follow what is happening on this legislation and communicate your concern to Congressman Trey Radel andcontinued on page 21B CHILDRENS EDUCATION CENTER OF THE ISLANDS350 Casa Ybel Road, Sanibel Island Celebrating 39 Years of Dedication to Education FOR PRESCHOOL CHILDREN LIMITED SPACE IS AVAILABLE FOR AGES 2 5 YEARS OLD F LORIDA VOLUNTARY PREKINDERGARTEN PROVIDER C ONTACT: JANA YATES, DIRECTOR(239) 472-4538Se habla Espaol

We have the option of going to a great daycare for another year. What are some things I should look for so I am sure that he will do well in kindergarten? April N., Fort Myers Beach April, It is a difficult decision to enroll your child in kindergarten when you still have some doubts about his readiness. Although your child has now reached the age when he is allowed to begin school, it is important to also be assured that your child is cognitively and emotionally ready to start kindergarten. Listed below are a few helpful hints from Virginia Academy of School Psychologists the school to help you assess if your child is developmentally ready for this big step. Cognitive Skills words in a sentence low, red, blue, orange and phone number and a few numbers (if taught) objects Language Skills names simple direction tions correctly ing with others plurals, pronouns and tenses Gross Motor Skills able to start, stop and turn ping, hopping and swinging Fine Motor Skills and designs lished assistance Social/Emotional Skills toys for pretend play, but may confuse fantasy and reality at times wrong doesnt always want to own, but still have fears of things like loud noises, the dark, animals and some people may still act them out Remember that each child grows at his/her own pace. Therefore, the infor mation in this section is based on what the average kindergarten child is able to do. You know your child best. If you feel that your child may have some delays in his development, it is important to speak to your childs pediatrician or school per sonnel about your concerns.

Insects were here long before people and will be here long after we are gone. Proof of this can be seen in the rapid that provided lights-out flea control only tion products continue to be introduced and effective flea control is still available. Your veterinarian is the best source for these products and instructions on how they are most effectively used. Failure to achieve flea control can occur for many reasons. Resistance to flea meds is a common problem. There are a number of ineffective knock-off medications that contain products no longer recommended by veterinarians. One of the most common reasons for poor flea control is not putting all pets in a given household on flea control medications. If one pet is on flea meds and a second is not, that second animal will be a constant reservoir for new fleas in the environment. As stated earlier, fleas prefer pets to people. If you see fleas jumping on you, odds are there is a massive infestation. Fleas will jump from pet to pet as they only spend a third of their time on their host. For this reason, flea shampoos are largely ineffective. Most flea dips and sprays lose efficacy once dry. New, effective flea control medications last for a full month, so if you miss a flea at the time of administration, the insect will be dealt with in time. Finally, half of pets that we see with itchy skin have no fleas. This is because itchy skin is seen not only with fleas and flea allergies, but with other allergies as well. That is a topic for another day but comb and run it through your pets fur. You might see fleas directly, or their curly black feces (flea dirt). If in doubt, add a drop of water to the black specks. If you blood), your pet has fleas. Sometimes evidence takes the form of red dots on white sheets and counter tops, or a tapeworm larvae pasted along your pets bottom. If you suspect fleas, you probably have them. The good news is that, unlike days gone by, a pet owner with a good product and a good battle plan can get the upper hand on fleas. The key word here being battle, as the war, to one degree or another will likely be an endless one. Dr. Mark Mathusa, DVM is a licensed veterinarian on Sanibel.

20B ISLAND SUN AUGUST 2, 2013 What do you do if a trust becomes a problem yet the trust itself is irrevocable and cant be changed? The trust might be irrevocable because it was originally established that way or the grantor is deceased. Are there options? The answer to that question is Yes! First, lets review what problems might exist in a trust. Common examples include a trust that has mandatory distributions to a beneficiary who doesnt have the maturity to handle the money, a change in family or financial circumstances, changes to the tax laws which render the trust obsolete or otherwise unworkable, too restrictive provisions imposed on the trustee and/or the beneficiaries, ambiguities that cause conflict between beneficiaries and a desire to change a problem trustee. There are actually a number of different strategies that may be employed when a problem trust is otherwise irrevocable. Ill briefly mention a few of those strategies here: Change May Be Permitted By Trust Instrument ItselfSometimes, the answer lies buried in the trust instrument itself. If a beneficiary holds a power of appointment, for example, he or she may be able to change the ultimate distribution of the assets at some point or another. Beneficiaries may also be able to remove a problem trustee. A thorough review of the trust instrument is always a good first step.Decanting When a trusts purpose remains good but its provisions obsolete for legal or tax reasons, sometimes decanting the assets from the old trust to a newly created trust is possible. Think of this as you would decant wine from its original bottle into a carafe its much the same concept. By breathing new air and provisions into the trust administration of its assets, the problems that exist today may be solved. There are a number of statutory legal requirements that must be satisfied before decanting is possible. Unanimous approval of all qualified beneficiaries (as defined by Florida law) is usually necessary as well. Judicial Or Nonjudicial ModificationWhere the trust instrument does not allow for the contemplated change, and if decanting is not an option, the parties may consider judicial modification. Here, the party that wants the change to the trust will file an action in Circuit Court asking a Judge to Order the change in the trust provisions. Here, one has to allege that there is a valid purpose behind the modification, such as the trust is no longer consistent with the grantors intended purposes. Here, one would argue that the purposes of the trust have already been fulfilled or have become illegal, impossible, wasteful or impractical to fulfill.Another such argument is that due to unforeseen circumstances, compliance with the trust provisions would substantially impair or defeat a material purpose of the trust. Yet another is that a material purpose of the trust no longer exists. This may be seen in an educational trust where all of the beneficiaries have already earned their diplomas. Florida law also provides that a Judge can issue an Order changing a trust terms where compliance with the terms are not in the best interest of the trust beneficiaries. Numerous cases involving trusts that require beneficiaries to marry within their religious faith, or attend a certain school to achieve a certain degree, or engage in similar specific behavior have been modified where the Court believed the provisions to be against public policy and not in the best interests of the beneficiary. The Florida statutes also allow modifications to trusts where it is clear that there was a mistake made within their provisions, a scriveners error, or a problem with the tax law subsequent to the signing of the trust. Most of these changes must be made by a Court through the judicial process. But Florida law also allows the trustee and all of the qualified beneficiaries to unanimously agree to change trust provisions without a Court Order outside of the judicial process. This method is preferred as it saves time and money. In order to do this, very specific factors must be present. The original date of the trust must be after January 1, 2001, the grantor must be deceased, the trust cannot have a charitable interest, and the trust cannot be subject to the pre-1997 rule against perpetuities governing how long the trust may stay in existence. There are many legal and tax consequences associated with changing a problem trust so consultation with a trust attorney is advised before acting. But all hope is not lost if you are either administering or are a beneficiary of a problem trust you may have viable options. Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at www.sbshlaw.com.

21B ISLAND SUN AUGUST 2, 2013 Is My Canal Safe To Swim In?by Bryan HayesThere could be something in your canal that could hurt you. Yes, there may be a shark, gator or some overly zealous manatee, but theres more of a likelihood that the threat is manmade. There is a newer inherent problem with boats, docks and electricity. You have probably heard about this issue; if not, lets hope you dont experience it first hand. The term is called electrical shock drowning (ESD). The ESD issue arises from electrical leakage. This is where electricity from dock power finds its way into the water that surrounds your boat. This could be a deadly situation if you are swimming in this water near your dock. To understand how this happens, we have to remember a couple rules of electricity. The first rule is that electricity must find its way back to the source; if it doesnt, than theres no electricity. The second rule is that electricity will try every available path to get back to its source. And lastly, electricity will always take the path of least resistance. Now that we understand the rules, lets explore how we run into problems with boats. It used to be that boats had a motor that we started with batteries. Often we would recharge these batteries with on-board alternators when the engine is running or if you go way back in time you would charge these batteries by removing them and charging them in the garage. With modern advancement, we now have shore power. Here is a scenario: We get back from a day on the water and plug our ship-toshore power into our boat. No batteries to pull, just plug it in and all is good. Well... we hope. Not to over-complicate things or get to in depth: with a boat, we deal with corrosion and abuse that our house will never see. We have both alternating current (a/c) and direct current (d/c) when we are plugged into shore power. Occasionally, this corrosive/ abusive environment can create problems with the electrical system. If these two different types of power cross paths, we can have a problem. So now that we know what it is and hopefully have a better understanding of how it happens, what can we do to insure that we are safe at our dock? lem, test the water, its easy to do. Go online and search preventing ESD. marinas, If you must swim at your dock for maintenance, unplug your ship-toshore power during the swim. a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) just like the ones in your kitchen and bath. If unsure, have them checked. ask that the electrical system be looked at for corrosion and loose connections and tested for any voltage leakage. plugs and receptacles that where designed to work together. nuisance tripping. If your GFCI keeps tripping, call an electrician to find out why; someones life could depend on it. Now with all of that said, the danger of electrical shock drowning is more prevalent in freshwater, but can happen in saltwater also. Bryan Hayes is a Sanibel air conditioning contractor. He also owns, with his brother Todd, an electrical business on Sanibel. He can be reached at Bryan@Sanibelair.com.

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, I am not the grandmother my family would like me to be, but I try to do my best. For years, I devoted my time to our kids and their activities. We went to their games; their lives were the center of our focus, but now we think these retirement years are our time time to have fun and enjoy and do the things we werent able to do when we were raising kids. We are a part of the grandkids lives, but not as involved as the parents think we should be. What do other grandparents do? Aubrey Dear Aubrey, Recently, I read parts of a new book The New Face Of Grandparenting by Donald Schmitz, a former teacher who holds graduate degrees in education and human development. Schmitz talks about the three varieties of grandparenting: First, been there done that; second, help when asked grandparents; and third, the parents forever grandparents. My personal experience, and with friends, some are so involved they want to micro-manage their grandchildrens lives and make up to them what they did not do or regret not doing for their own children. Others are less involved and dont want to interfere, then others are so fed up with their own kids and the grandchildren, they now want a totally different life. Time to do the things they couldnt do before. We all probably fall somewhere in between. It seems that so many adult children are shocked when their parents dont act like they did when they were in their 40s and dont seem to realize their parents are in their horizon years and have differ ent emotional needs. Lizzie Dear Aubrey, The role of grandparent can take on very different shapes. What I think is important is that the role of grandpar ent remain flexible and meets the needs of everyone, including the person in the grandparent role. Not all grandparents want or can be a grandparent for a variety of reasons. Not all adult children can or want their parents involved with their children for a variety of reasons. Not all children want or can have their grandpar ents around. You and your family need to deter mine the grandparenting expectations. At first blush, it is great to have grandchildren that want you around and adult children that want you around as well. That is something very good to work with. So work with it and enjoy family time as well as free retirement time. Pryce Lizzie and Pryces email address is momandmeaging@hotmail.com. Eden Energy MedicineS eeking Inspiration? L et Heaven Rush Inby Karen L. Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAML(03-12)We all have moments when we feel alone and dont know which way to turn to seek the answer we so ache to find. So, if you are feeling the need for inspiration; or are feeling anguish because you have a long-standing illness that just wont heal; or you are at a cross-roads in your life where the next step will dramatically change the course of lifes journey; or literally or figuratively you are feeling shut-in or confined or just seem to have your mind going in continuous tight circles; or just simply are feeling lost, forlorn, alone or in despair then it is time to connect with energies that will feed and nourish you. Donna Eden likes to remind us that matter follows energy and that our universe is comprised of multi-dimensional intelligence. By engaging in the exercise of Heaven Rushing In, you are touching the sacred dimension of that higher intelligence to provide answers and guidance that is easily attainable if you just ask and open yourself to the experience. Although the exercises name includes the word heaven, the concept is to seek connectedness with the source, whatever that source maybe in your belief system, which is viewed as having divine energies larger than your own. If possible, do this exercise outdoors, or even better, under the stars to invite the physical and metaphysical energy fields to you. Remember that we are all part of an interconnected universe and can access that sense of oneness with practice. The technique is as follows: Step 1. Stand with feet hip width apart. After rubbing the palms of hands briskly together, place the palms on the front of each thigh. Feel the connection between your hands, legs and the earth, all grounding you. Step 2. On an inhale, bring your hands together in a prayer position in front of you heart. Hold for several seconds and then exhale. Step 3. On an inhale, extend your hands out from the sides, bringing them in an arch overhead, while opening your hands, heart and arms to the heavens to allow the energy to enter. Both hands are touching the heavens. Step 4. Exhale. Continue to hold this position as long as it feels good to you, while breathing at a normal rate. Step 5. Move the hands to your heart as you bring the source energy to you. Your hands are on a vortex called Heaven Rushing In. Experience the energy rejuvenating you. Step 6. Place your energized hands at any place on your body where it is needed. The exercise can now end by placing your hands over your heart as you started or open your hands again to the Universe for more. Either way, you should now feel much more connected, in tune and nourished. Enjoy the journey. Have fun with your energy! Next weeks topic is Meridians: The Most Physical of the Nine Systems.

EEM does not diagnose or cure illness, but working with subtle energies of the body has been shown to help many conditions. G ot A Problem? D r. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: How does humor reduce the negative effects of stress?A: Good humor reduces the negative effects of stress. We have a choice: to live in fear and be unhappy or to live in love and be happy. Live, laugh, love! When we practice all three to their fullest, we are celebrating each moment and the gift of life. In todays society, we all need a good laugh to keep our spirits in check. A sense of humor emerges when you accept things as they are. Enlightened souls (like the Dalai Lama) laugh often. Norman Cousins, editor of Saturday Evening Review, said: Good spirits are a vital part of life. Denying joy is one of the greatest deprivations on this planet! Cousins ought to know. He was faced with a serious degenerative condition. He began reading Dr. Hans Selyes The Stress of Life and examined what role his emotions played in his illness. He decided that love, hope, humor and laughter did have merit in the healing process. How did he come to this conclusion? Cousins watched classic episodes of the television show Candid Camera. He also spent 10 minutes of each day belly continued on page 23B

PAGE 55

23B ISLAND SUN AUGUST 2, 2013 From page 22BDr. Connielaughing. He discovered the joy of loosening up the abdomen and relaxing the solar plexus muscles. Cousins later wrote the book, Anatomy Of An Illness. He mentioned that just Ten minutes of laughter allowed two hours of pain-free sleep. Can one literally laugh him or herself back to health? Why not? Laughter is truly healing. Physiologically speaking, it boosts your immune system and helps the brain release endorphins, which are natural pain relievers and mood lifters. Laughter increases immunity by increasing gamma interferon, which speeds up the production of new immune cells. People who laugh release nervous energy built up from repressed thoughts. Famed psychiatrist Sigmund Freud suggested that the act of laughter may release the stored energy of sexual and hostile impulses suppressed by the conscious mind. He believed the greater the suppression of thoughts, the greater the laughter needed to release them. In my stress management workshops, I tell the participants to belt out a good belly laugh for at least 25 seconds. Not only is it good for reducing blood pressure, stimulating circulation, facilitating digestion, reducing tension, it is contagious. When someone in the room sees another person laughing, he starts laughing. Then in no time, everyone is laughing. Laughter is also a great ice breaker and a wonderful way to release stress. Sometimes when we get so serious, we need to start laughing and be able to see that we get ourselves so uptight over the silliest things. The best time to revel in the humor is when we are at our wits end. Instead of BMWing (bitch, moan and whine), see the humor; its a great alternative. Studies show that children laugh up to 400 times a day while adults may laugh a couple times a day. When we enter adulthood, most of us get caught up in the seriousness of life. Were tired, were stressed, were miserable and oh so serious. I ask participants in my seminars to write about the last time they remember having a good belly laugh. I encourage them to visualize the event; where they were, whom they were with, what triggered the laugh. At this point, the group is usually somber and quiet. I usually prod them with Gee, this is so serious! A few people laugh. Then I have the group share their stories, and it only takes a few moments before everyone in the room is laughing and having fun. As the room lights up and everyone is happy and joyful, the participants realize how serious they were just before the exercise. They usually observe that the exercise was a great way to make them realize that they need to laugh everyday. deaRPharmacistS elenium Helps Hashimotos A nd G raves D iseaseby S uzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: I have Hashimotos thyroid disease, and my husband has Graves. We are a perfect match because he makes too much and I make too little. Advice? BL, Dallas, Texas Youre little thyroid is a small gland with a big function. Located at the base of your throat, your thyroid produces hormones that control your metabolism (as in fat-burning ability) and regulates the rhythm of your heart and your body temperature. That explains why you eat like a bird and gain weight, while your husband eats a horse and stays thin. People like that either have a healthy thyroid and good metabolism, or they have intestinal parasites! Well, anyway, point is, one glitch in your thyroid and dangerous consequences can ensue, ranging from encephalopathy to heartbeat irregularities. Most people think hypothyroidism is strictly about fatigue, cold sensitivity and weight gain. But news flash: it causes misery head to toe. The opposite of hypothyroidism is hyperthyroidism, where excessive thyroid hormone is produced causing weight loss, rapid heartbeat and heat intolerance (and 100 more symptoms). Hyperthyroidism is often referred to as Graves disease and auto-immune condition where the body attacks its own thyroid gland. A goiter in the neck can occur. Whether you have hypo or hyperthyroidism, selenium is one trace mineral that may help. There are others which Ive written about in the past (see my article archives). Selenium has been shown in clinical trials to either slow the progression of or reduce symptoms of thyroid conditions, meaning any imbalance (hyper or hypo). Selenium is directly tied to the health of your thyroid gland, so discuss this mineral with your doctor. Your precious stash of selenium may be mugged by... wait for it... your medication! Surprised? Well, unfortunately its true. Your medicine might be crashing your thyroid over time, and this was covered in the selenium chapter in my book, Drug Muggers. Here are some common muggers of selenium: If you take any of those, selenium supplementation may be critical for you. And just FYI, its not just medicine, certain medical conditions and beverages affect selenium status. Recently, scientists discovered a certain gene is associated with thyroid cancer. This gene usually stops tumor growth, and when lifestyle factors turn it off in your body, thyroid tumors are more apt to grow. Im approaching my word count, so if youd like more details about thyroid disease, this cancer gene, how to switch it back on or anything else, sign up for my health tips newsletter at my website, in the banner, upper right-hand corner. One more thing, selenium-rich foods include walnuts, tuna (not too much, mer cury!), shrimp, eggs, cheese, turkey, beef and oatmeal. I like Brazil nuts because eating four per day gives you about 200 micrograms of selenium. Do not make home-made Brazil nut milk like I did... you will overload!

I am two years old and my adoption fee is only $25 (regularly $75) during Animal Services Theres No Place Like Home adoption promotion. They call me Tiptoe and I was only two weeks old when I came to the shelter with my littermates. We went to a wonderful foster home where we learned to be sociable, loving little kitties. My foster mom says Im outgoing and playful and will make an excellent lap kitty. If you want cute and lovable, Id be perfect! My adoption fee is only $10 Animal Services promotion. For information about this weeks pets, call 533-7387 (LEE-PETS) or log on to Animal Services website at www.LeeLostPets.com. When calling, refer to the animals ID number.

New gifts received prior to December 31, 2013 will be matched, up to $25,000, for the GCHS Veterinary Clinic. Donations can be made in per son, by mail or on the website at www.gulfcoasthumanesociety.org, through PayPal. The GCHS clinic is a full-service veterinary clinic open to the public six days a week. All funds above operating costs go directly back to support the shelter pets of the Gulf Coast Humane Society. Having a digital x-ray machine in the clinic will allow staff to diagnose and treat sick and injured pets right away. No longer will a pet have to be transported to another hospital for x-rays. With the addition of this x-ray machine, GCHS will be able to provide high quality care to hundreds more dogs and cats each year in its modernized clinic. This is a great opportunity for Gulf Coast Humane Society supporters to double their investment.

7 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 2, 2013 Miss Outstanding Teen America Hopeful Training On Sanibelby Jim GeorgeIt takes more than beauty to win a beauty contest these days. Intelligence, talent, common sense and the ability to think on your feet all weigh heavily into a judges decision. So says Gari Lewis, a Sanibel resident and former Miss Maine. Lewis will host and train Daphne Ellis, 16, who will compete in the Miss Outstanding Teen America pageant in Orlando on August 13 through 17. The pageant is a pre-pageant for younger girls ages 13 to 17 to the Miss America Scholarship Pageant, which is 91 years old. According to Lewis, millions of dollars each year are contributed to helping young women achieve their educational goals. Ellis is currently Miss Maine Outstanding Teen. She lives on a flower farm with her grandmother. From August 2 through 9, Ms. Ellis from Turner, Maine will spend her days on Sanibel with Lewis practicing her runway walk, putting the final touches on her national competition wardrobe, reading about current events, answering questions to help her with the judges interviews and rehearsing her talent segment an original song she composed and will play on the piano titled, How can I keep from singing? Lewis has arranged local television interviews and appearances for the teen. Having a week with me down here will be a great way for Daphne to acclimate herself to the Florida sunshine. Well be working hard but well also be enjoying this lovely island, Lewis said. She will accompany the teen to Orlando. Lewis has been volunteering with the Miss America Scholarship program for almost 30 years and has spent her career as a fashion designer, teacher and consultant. Ellis is not your typical teen ager. She plays the piano and drums; shes a songwriter and poet; draws and paints for relaxation; loves Latin; teaches dance to 7and 8-year-olds; models; dances intensively six days a week and has traveled in Europe and many U.S. states. Along with her training by Lewis, all of those experiences will be the underpinning of her appearance and possible success in the Orlando pageant. Each contestant establishes her platform for the competition and for her reign, if she wins. For Ellis, its to show everyone that no matter who they are, they are beautiful and just as important as another. Ill be remembered for showing kids and even adults, that the only expectations they should live up to are their own. Founded in 2005, Miss Americas Outstanding Teen, Inc. has become one of the top scholarship providers for teen girls in the United States. All of the participants, on the local, state and national levels, have been the recipients of valuable scholarship assistance upon graduation from high school. The organization has made available almost $4,000,000 in cash and in-kind scholarships. As of September 2012, they have written scholarship checks for over $611,000 to more than 120 different colleges and universities across the country. All scholarships are paid directly to the institution attended by the participants and cover tuition, books, and room and board. There are no individual cash payments.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 2, 20138 Docents Sweat It Out For The Last Days Of SeasonThe Sanibel Historical Museum and Village closes for the season after August 3 and reopens November 6 on full-time hours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Through the sweltering summer months, the museum is staffed by a small but talented group of volunteers who work through the heat to serve the museums visitors. Many of our docents and volunteers return to their home bases for the summer, said museum manager Emilie Alfino. We miss them and wish them a happy summer, and then we try to staff the museum as best we can. And we do okay because we have a dedicated core group of about 15 people available to work all or part of the summer months. Of course, they have to work harder and more often as the need is greater, but many tell me they actually enjoy it more. During the summer, I have more time to interact with the customers and share some of the very intimate times of their lives, said Annette Cantalupo, who most often works in the old Bailey General Store. People start telling me about something or other that reminds them of their childhood. I learn so many things about history from the customers. But I love being here in the winter, too, when its busy, busy, busy. Barbara Broadhurst, working in the Rutland House on one of the hottest, most humid days of the summer so far, said, In the summer, youre busy from the time you get here until the time you leave, because were working with fewer docents. The time flies. I like to talk to a lot of Floridians who visit us in the summer. I like to talk to them about their areas and their history. We always get a nice group of people coming in the summertime. Dave Richard, who serves as a tour guide during season, also works during some summer months. I find that as our summer temperatures and humidity begin to rise, its easier for museum visitors to experience and appreciate the design features of the pioneer cracker houses that kept early Sanibel residents as comfortable as could be in those days before air conditioning, electricity or mosquito control. The first thing that came to mind for docent Anita Smith, who worked during the early summer months, was this: Its sitting on the porch waiting for the guests to arrive. And the weather is gorgeous. The village is at 950 Dunlop Road. Call 472-4648 or visit www.sanibelmuseum.org.

One program was held at Our Mothers Home, a foster home for young girls with babies. This is the second year in a row that HTAP has conducted the program there. Two programs were held at the Heights Foundation Community Center one in the spring afterschool program and one in the Summer Camp program. Another was a first-time venture with the Boys and Girls Club of Lee County, held at the Pueblo Bonito Clubhouse in Bonita Spring. About 40 children attended these programs and they created 10 large paintings. At each of the programs, the girls are taught about the dangers of human trafficking to themselves and others. They are taught the lures used to draw girls into trafficking and the ways they can avoid becoming a victim. They are also taught how art has been used for centuries as a tool of social change. They then create large paintings (3 feet x 4 feet) which are later available for exhibition. Over the past 3.5 years, a total of 37 paintings have been created as well as a play and photography and poetry projects. Boys have participated in the TIPS program (Trafficking Interactive Prevention Simulation) and earlier ARTREACH programs. HTAPs mission is to build awareness of human trafficking to all, to provide trainings for professionals and to develop programs and resources which can be shared with other organizations. ARTREACH is one of the programs which have been duplicated through Train The Training programs around the country and in Florida. ARTREACH paintings are reproduced in banner form which are often displayed locally or lent for display at awareness events or conferences around the country. A banner is made for each facility which hosts a program and postcards featuring the artwork and paintings which are used for training purposes. HTAP is supported in part by local Zonta Clubs, St. Michaels and All Angels Church, Wells-Fargo, Eileen Fisher and the Southwest Florida Community Foundation and by generous donations from individuals in the Sanibel community. It currently operates from an office on Sanibel and one in Fort Myers. For more information, send an email to info@humantraffickingawareness. org or call 415-2635. Paintings are brought into the Boys and Girls Club of Lee County in Bonita Springs Cycling Safety Notes USE CAUTION WHEN CROSSING STREETS, AND DO SO AT LEGAL CROSSWALKS, IF POSSIBLE Always use caution when crossing any street (or driveway) that intersects with our Paths; use the crosswalk if available.

The study, outlined in an article published in the Nature Climate Change journal, cites the risk posed to the U.S. coastlines from the higher seas and more severe storms many expect as a consequence of climate change, putting real numbers on the people and populations which could be at risk if projections turn into reality. The authors then posit how natural habitats sand dunes, coral reefs, sea grasses, mangrove fringes, etc. could offer significant coastal protections at a lower cost if they are not allowed to dwindle and die as seas rise and shorelines harden. Using real numbers and actual science to frame this issue (which is too often debated with emotions and politics as the main drivers), is welcome, as is recognizing the value of the coast (such as 23 of the 25 most densely populated counties are coastal) and the need to better acknowledge the protective value of any coastal habitat that puts more distance between storm waves and upland infrastructure. Developing a Coastal Hazards Index that can graphically portray the countys coastlines at greatest risk is also useful, quickly communicating both the breadth and severity of any areas risk in a way the lay person can grasp. But the presumption that the only choices are shoreline hardening or habitat preservation is too black and white for our real coastal world. Many coastal communities (and their governmental entities) have taken hardening out of the coastal toolbox, having lived through the destructive days of seawalls and groins as the lone coastal solution to sand loss. In some areas, coastal structures of any stripe are banned; in others, they are allowed only as part of an engineered solution that capitalizes on their strengths and mitigates their other impacts. Also, the focus on preservation of existing habitats needs to be joined with a drive to restore lost habitats, so we dont just draw a line in the sand policy-wise but work to replace any beneficial protections lost over time. And lets add wide beaches as another appropriate coastal protection worthy of preservation and restoration, recognizing their value in keeping storm waves at bay and adding more elevation in response to rising seas. (The habitat benefit which wide beaches offer is just icing on the natural cake.) Finally, every coastal professional can join in the studys implied call for further research into the impacts and options in coastal protection particularly work that balances the needs and demands of all coastal stakeholders in an effort to task science and sense to develop sustainable solutions in anticipation of whatever changes climate ends up blowing our way. The same measures that can protect coastal communities from storm damage will also build a buffer against any rise in sea level, allowing us to implement protections that address the inevitable (such as storms) as well as the unknown (such as rising seas). A good first step is to acknowledge the need for and benefit of coastal protection, with the imperative that science (rather than emotion) leads the way. This study appears to be a good start.

But each of the flowers is only one-sixteenth of an inch across, so they go largely unnoticed, except by butterflies and bees. The native mat-forming wildflower is a larval food for the common buckeye, White peacock, and phaon crescent butterflies and a nectar source for other species. The plants prosaic common names, which include capeweed, mat-grass, and turkey tangle fogfruit, do nothing to enhance its appeal. Each flower stalk is topped by a cylindrical flowerhead with a rich purple center. Yellow-throated white to lavender flowers encircle the center and bloom throughout the year. The term nodiflora, which means knotted, refers to this tight structure. The plant spreads by rooted nodes, with the flower stalks growing up to six inches tall. The narrow toothed leaves measure about an inch long. Creeping Charlie is credited with a host of medicinal benefits. It is used as a tea, leaf paste, and root juice in treating wounds, hookworm, fever, ulcers, and other ailments. This groundcover is common in lawns, disturbed sites, and roadsides. If it creeps into your yard, consider letting it flourish for the butterflies. Propagate it by dividing the rootball, with stem cuttings, or from seeds. It can even be used as a hanging plant.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 2, 201320 Conditions Made For Some Tough Days Fishingby Capt. Matt MitchellNasty brown water and strong northwest winds really did a number on the fishing action for a few days this week. Add to that slow moving outgoing tides being held up by the wind and I cant think of any time recently when I struggled quite so badly to catch very few fish. Once the winds relaxed and the tides got better, fishing picked right back up with catch and release snook action being the most consistent bite. Snook could be caught most days this week in good numbers in the passes. With this being the best bite in town and not many other options with poor tides and windy conditions, the amount of boat traffic in the passes has been a little crazy. If everyone is on the same page drifting the passes, its been manageable and can be fun watching other boats hook up. With 10 to 20 boats all making the same drift of a pass, it can quickly be wrecked by one boat not sticking to the program. Late afternoon incoming tides did produce a few days of good mangrove snook action. The key for me was finding a deeper windblown shoreline that had the tide moving in the same direction as the wind. The big snook of the week caught on my boat was a 17-pound 37-inch snook that was taken on the first cast on such a shoreline. One little windblown mangrove point produced three slot or better sized snook which quickly jumped on the large tail hooked pinfish we were pitching up under the bushes. With poor daytime redfish tides, this week I really did not target them. We did catch a few reds in the mid to upper 20-inch class while drifting the passes for snook. As morning high tides improve, the morning redfish bite should get a whole lot better this week. Trout fishing this week was just about impossible with the dirty stirred up water. Even when I did find some clearer water around the inside of the passes, we just could not get it going. Running as far north as Cayo Costa on a tough day of fishing this week, there was no clean or even clearer water to be found anywhere in the sound. After a few more calm days though, our water color should gradually start to improve. Another option during the calmer days this week was gag grouper fishing in and around the deeper passes. Drifting across the drop offs and structure with a large pinfish hooked up on a 7/0 circle caught limits of gags up to 28 inches. When the tide was moving fast, often it would take as much as a sixto eight-ounce weight to keep the bait straight up and down on the bottom. Heavy tackle is a must for this if you hope to pull these hard fighting grouper away from the underwater structure. One plus of the dirty water is you could use 80-pound leader and still get bites. Strong northwest winds put an end to this action in the passes as it simply got too rough for a few days. There are several of my trips this week that I would like to forget ever happened. We never got skunked but action was very slow. Days like this are tough when basically everything is going against you and the conditions give you very few options. As a fishing guide on days like this, you work so much harder and just feel beat up at the end of a trip, as you always want your clients to catch fish. Capt. Matt Mitchell has been fishing local waters since he moved to Sanibel in 1980. He now lives in St. James City and works as a back country fishing guide.

According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, coyotes successfully expanded their natural range to the Southeast in the 1960s, reaching northern Florida in the 1970s. One study indicates that by 1988, 48 out of 67 Florida counties reported having coyote populations. Two beautiful, shy female coyote pups are being treated at CROW. Each was found off-island. One of the pups, patient #1754, arrived with a fractured hind leg, likely the result of being hit by a motorist. As a youngster growing at a very rapid pace, Dr. Heather initially implemented a schedule to change the injured pups cast every two weeks. However, Dr. Heather or Dr. Kristen quietly walk outside to the coyotes enclosure daily to sneak a quick peak at the cast to ensure that it is holding up to the elements. We would totally stress her out if we took her out each day; we would stress her out and the other one out, noted Dr. Kristen. Both coyotes have been vaccinated against distemper, a viral infection that affects the respiratory, gastrointestinal and central nervous system of many carnivorous species of wildlife and certain domestic animals. They were also vaccinated against parvovirus, canine adenovirus and dewormed, making them parasite free. Dr. Heather will soon vaccinate them against rabies. As an invasive species with a large territorial range, there is a concern about the impact that coyotes may have on indigenous species of the Sunshine State; they are either potential competitors for food or predators. Dr. Heather is currently searching for a qualified wildlife educational facility to adopt both coyotes, as federal law prohibits CROW from releasing them into the wild due to their invasive species status. Once the two coyote pups have fully recovered from their injuries and are relocated, they will serve as examples to people interested in learning about wild animals, their habitats and the role each creature (and human) plays in maintaining a healthy, balanced ecosystem.

23 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 2, 2013Birds Eye ViewDeath Is Just A Part Of Lifeby Mark Bird WestallLast week, I received a call from a very nice lady who is active in some of the various wildlife programs on Sanibel. Like many who come to Sanibel and get involved with the islands environmental ethic, she has a great appreciation and love for all things wild. Her reason for calling me was because she was concerned about a runt osprey chick that seemed to be remaining on the nest long after its sibling had fledged and both parents were being seen less and less at the nest. I agreed that the middle of July was quite late for there to be young still in the nest and it was possible that this youngster wasnt going to make it. However, trying to give the concerned caller a glimpse of hope, I also mentioned that with the cold weather we had experienced earlier in the winter, several nests on the island had lost their first clutch of eggs and, subsequently, double-clutched, resulting in some of the young fledging much later than normal. So, maybe this chick could still make it. But then she asked the question that is the most difficult one for me to answer honestly, but also I believe, must be answered honestly: Is there anything that we can do? I hesitated in giving my answer because I dont want to sound cruel and uncaring, but eventually I replied, Sometimes you just have to let nature take its course. I think most of us that get involved with wildlife observation or work, do so because of our love of the wild things we watch or take care of. And nobody wants to see those creatures experience pain and suffering. I remember being asked to drive to the mainland one night shortly after I moved here and pick up an injured barn owl that someone found on the ground, keep it warm and secure for the night, and take it to CROW (the islands wildlife hospital) the next morning. I had never seen a barn owl up close before. It was beautiful and I was beside myself. It didnt seem to be seriously injured; no obvious broken bones and it just stood on my gloved hand and looked at me with those big, dark eyes. I was proud to be its knight in shining armor who was going to rescue it and help it return to the wild. But early the next morning when I peeked in the carrying cage to check on it... it was dead! My heart was broken. How could something so fascinating die so easily? Should I have done something different? I had followed the instructions that were given to me, but was it my fault this beautiful creature was dead? Unfortunately since that time, I have had to watch many beautiful creatures die; animals that left this world much earlier than they should have. But it was that barn owl that gave me one of the most important lessons of my life: death is just a part of life. I may not like to see it and I may try my best to keep it from happening, but when it does happen, I take a moment to note what has happened, and then move on. (I know this sounds crazy, but I even do that when I kill a mosquito thats sucking out my blood). I cant tell you how many times in the early days of my involvement with the ospreys on Sanibel that I would go out in a raging thunderstorm and start looking underneath some precarious nest full of chicks that I just knew would fall during the storm. And many times I would find the nest destroyed on the ground and the wet young still alive. But sometimes, I would be too late and I would have to settle with the understanding that I did my best. Today, ospreys are doing really well as a species so we probably can lose a chick or two and the population will do just fine. We have to look at the whole picture; is a certain species or population on the edge? If it is, then every individual within that species or population becomes more important. If it isnt, then there has to be some mortality in order for the whole population to remain healthy and stable. It drives me crazy when I hear some animal lover say, Oh, dont shoot Bambi! Bambis too cute. OK, so youd rather see Bambi overpopulate an area and starve to death, defoliating all the surrounding vegetation in the process. Now, its important to say that I dont want to see some guy with an AK-47 and a six-pack of beer shooting everything that moves. But if some form of harvesting does not happen to deer populations, then the system as a whole suffers and, eventually, so do the deer. What it comes down to, Ive said many times its all about balance. Everything has a purpose, but that doesnt mean everything will live forever. Remember, if given a choice, I can guarantee the fish that is eaten by an osprey would rather still be swimming around feeding on its own prey instead of being torn to pieces by the osprey.continued on page 25 I CANNOT TELL A LIE...IT'S SIMPLY THE BEST...

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 2, 201324 An Audubon Florida Special PlaceMatheson Hammock Parkby Roger L. HammerThe National Gold Medal Awardwinning Miami-Dade Parks & Recreation Department was formed in 1930 with Matheson Hammock as its very first park. The initial 80 acres was a gift to Dade County by a wealthy pioneer, William J. Matheson. The park was developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps and designed by William Lyman Phillips, the famed architect who would later design Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, Bok Tower Gardens and McKee Botanical Gardens. This was fortunate because Phillips penned, in longhand, The mangrove swamp is to most humans a hateful hostile growth. Yet, as a forest type, mangrove [habitat] is unique; and where in a given situation such as this [Matheson Hammock Park], the swamp can be assigned an important role in the total parks effect, and can be regarded and managed sympathetically. The preservation and passing down of it to posterity would seem an act of considerable cultural significance. Matheson Hammock Park now spans 630 acres and harbors a popular marina, restaurant, picnic areas and open shorelines along Biscayne Bay, where park visitors come to fish, canoe, kayak, sailboard or simply relax. But theres a lesservisited part of the park that even local residents scarcely know exists. On the west side of Old Cutler Road, across from the bustling marina, is Matheson Hammock, the forest. Hammocks are islands of hardwood forest trees, surrounded by a differing vegetation type, and there are more than 100 hammocks on Long Pine Key in Everglades National Park. Matheson Hammock was visited by some of South Floridas earliest botanists, most notably John Kunkel Small, an eminent authority on John Ogden, Lynn Scarlett, former Deputy Secretary, U.S. Department of the Interior, and Roger Hammer birding at Matheson Hammock photos by Roger Hamme Rare clamshell orchid New Business of the Year 3111 West Gulf Drive, Sanibel Gift Cards Available Call 239472 -4559 TraditionsOnTheBeach.com Specializing in weddings, private parties and corporate events 1551 Periwinkle Way I 472-7242 Lunch 113 I Happy Hour 36 I Dinner 59:30Dinner reservations suggested DINING SHOPPING COCKTAILS AWARD-WINNING BISTRO CUISINE JEWELRY, CLOTHING, BOOKS & GIFTS FINE WINES, BEERS & HAPPY HOUR MENU Live!

Although the clamshell orchids have entirely disappeared due to collecting, periodic freezes and hurricanes, the hammock remains floristically rich. A loop trail leads visitors through the hammock and the trailhead is directly across the street from the entrance to the marina side of the park. Some of my fondest memories of Matheson Hammock Park are birding there with my friend, next-door neighbor and fellow rum connoisseur John Ogden. He was working on the Bird Oases Project spearheaded by Florida Audubon Society, and later transferred to Tropical Audubon Society. John and I would spend several hours once a day each week during spring and fall migration. Our task was to not only identify migratory songbirds but also identify the trees and shrubs they were visiting, and what the birds were doing. The outcome of the project is that we now have a much better understanding of which migratory birds utilize which specific plants the most, and why. Some birds, we learned, were seeking insects, while others were feasting on fruits, sipping nectar, or gulping down entire flowers bugs, nectar, pollen and all. Johns passing in March 2012 was a great loss to the birding world, and to anyone who had the good fortune to know him. Matheson Hammock is regarded as one of the hot birding spots in the Miami area for local birders and migratory birders as well. When migratory birds fly over metropolitan Miami, green spaces such as Matheson Hammock stand out as inviting stopovers; a place to rest, feed and rejuvenate for the long trip south, or north, depending on the season. It should come as no surprise that Matheson Hammock is included along the Great Florida Birding Trail, a self-guided 2,000mile highway trail established by the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission. Make Matheson Hammock one of your stops where you can find an exciting array of birds as well as a peaceful place among the hustle and bustle of Miami.

River Cruises Return For Summer At Edison FordThe Edison & Ford Winter Estates and Captiva Cruises are offering short cruises on the Caloosahatchee River and tours of Edison Ford on Sundays and Mondays at 10 a.m., 11 a.m., noon and 1 p.m. The cruise and tour is a great way to learn about the ecology and history of the river that the Edison and Ford families explored and fished. In 1886, Thomas Edison purchased 15 acres along the Caloosahatchee and built Seminole Lodge, his stunning winter estate facing the river. He also built a 1,800 foot long wood pier with entertaining areas and a boathouse for his electric launch, the Reliance. Today, visitors to the Edison & Ford Winter Estates will also tour the Caloosahatchee on a modern flat-bottom vessel complete with awnings and the same leisurely travel agenda. The river cruises are a great way to experience the history of this important river and the ecology and environmental significance to Southwest Florida. Cost for Edison Ford members: adults are $20, children 12 and under are $15; non-members: adults are $40, children 12 and under are $30. Admission includes an audio tour of the Edison Ford homes, gardens, lab and museum as well as an historian-led boat cruise of the Caloosahatchee River. Contact Edison Ford for cruise times, ticket information, tour options and to arrange special times and dates for group reservations. River cruises are available on Sunday evenings for sunset cruises, family gatherings, private events and childrens dolphin parties.

4B ISLAND SUN AUGUST 2, 2013 American Red Cross Launches New App To Recruit VolunteersThe American Red Cross today launched the Team Red Cross App, which allows people to sign up to help, get an overview on basic tasks and receive notifications about Red Cross disaster volunteer opportunities in their community. When people see an emergency happening in their community, they often want to help but may not know how, said John Cain, director of volunteer services, Florida Southern Gulf Region. The Team Red Cross App provides an easy and quick way for people to sign up to help the Red Cross and support their community. Once users download the app, they create an account. Then they learn about different jobs, such as working in a warehouse, handing out supplies or assisting with feeding. When the Red Cross has a need for volunteers, the app will notify users based on their location. Potential volunteers can instantly accept or decline the opportunity. The Red Cross is encouraging the public to download the app before a disaster strikes in Collier, Lee, Hendry or Glades Counties so volunteers can help immediately. The app is free and designed for iPhone and Android smart phones and tablets. Additional features include: at the touch of a button. This is the seventh in a series of highly successful Red Cross apps, which are now on more than three million mobile devices across the country. A recent Red Cross survey shows that apps are now tied with social media as the fourth most popular way to get information during emergencies behind TV, radio and online news sites. Nearly one-fifth of Americans say theyve received some kind of emergency information from an app theyve downloaded, making the Red Cross apps an important way for the public to get ready for disasters. The app can be found in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store by searching for American Red Cross or by going to redcross.org/mobileapps.

5B ISLAND SUN AUGUST 2, 2013Rotary Happenings submitted by S hirley JewellCEO and President of Disabled Veterans Insurance Careers, Inc. (DVIC) Gary Bryant, lieutenant colonel of the U.S. Army (retired), spoke to the club this week. The DVIC is a U.S. disabled military veterans training and job placement opportunity program. Bryant retired from active military duty after 20 years serving our country. A career highlight was serving in headquarters of U.S. Central Command in Saudi Arabia on the staff of General Norman Schwarzkopf during Desert Shield and Desert Storm. After retiring from the army, he spent five years as officer in charge of the Jr. ROTC program for the School District of Lee County until 1999. He served as president and CEO of Good Wheels, Inc., a not-for profit agency in Fort Myers, serving the disabled and disadvantaged. During this time, he was appointed to serve on the Florida Commission for the Transportation Disadvantaged and was elected to the statewide office of president, Florida Association of Community Transportation Systems. Many of our military veterans are returning home with life-changing disabilities. Finding a purposeful life beyond the military is a major challenge and job opportunities are limited. Founded in Fort Myers in 2011, DVICs goal is to provide employment opportunities in the insur ance business for disabled veterans. DVIC realizes that many of our returning disabled men and women have mobility problems so they designed a program that uses computer technology to provide all training at home. DVICs business model embraces a virtual office so that the disabled veteran will be able to work from home or other remote location. This virtual office aspect mimics the vir tual classroom in which disabled veterans will be educated and trained. The combination of a virtual classroom and virtual office makes this endeavor perfect for disabled veterans. The per person cost of setting up a home office for the veteran and all training material and support is $50,000. Currently, the organization has 25 par ticipants; 75 percent are estimated to achieve the goal of completing the year course, receiving their insurance agent licenses and job placement. Financial support for the program presently comes from donations and grants. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary welcomed back Veronica Valencia, our Dick Aldrich Scholarship winner, and got a chance to catch up with her before she headed back to University of South Florida for her junior year. Veronica is an impressive young women and her determination to succeed in life is evident by her approach to learning. She not only is an outstanding student but she finds ways to expand her knowledge through programs offered at the school. This summer, she spent six weeks in China participating in USFs Tier 1 China Learning & Cultural Exchange program. This is a full emer gence program. The students studied the Chinese language and use it with no translators during classroom work and during travel. Veronica is planning on a career in the medical profession and hopes her ability to speak several languages will broaden her opportunities. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets at 7 a.m. every Friday at The Dunes Golf and Tennis Club, 949 Sand Castle Road.

6B ISLAND SUN AUGUST 2, 2013 T arpon Bay Explorers D onate Revenues To Wildland Firefighters FoundationNineteen Granite Mountain Hotshot Firefighters were killed fighting the Yarnell Hill Fire in Arizona on June 30. When the owners of Tarpon Bay Explorers heard about this tragedy, they decided it was time for another fundraiser. So Saturday, July 20 was chosen, and the Explorers set out to get as many people as possible out on the tours and rentals that day so they could donate all the tour and rental revenues to the Wildland Firefighters Foundation (www. wffoundation.org). The day started out with full standup paddleboard and kayak eco-tours. Janice, Heidi and Lauren of the Southwest Florida Standup Paddleboard Club then launched to paddle to Blind Pass, and the club donated $100. In the afternoon, the Howard family rented kayaks and donated an additional $100 on top of the rental fee. The final program of the day was the sunset evening cruise at 6 p.m. The total of all revenues and additional donations for the day at Tarpon Bay was $5070.90. The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and the National Parks Service also held a chili cook-off fundraiser down at the Golden Gate Fire Department the same day and raised just over $6,000, so the total fundraising efforts generated more than $11,000.

11B ISLAND SUN AUGUST 2, 2013 Red Sox Fans Arent Shedding Tears Over Yankee Mess Involving A-Rodby Ed FrankAs the Major League Baseball season moves into the final third of the 2013 season, the Boston Red Sox faithful and they number in the tens of thousands here in Southwest Florida are in a state euphoria for two principal reasons. 1. Boston continues to ride atop the American League Eastern Division as they have for nearly the entire season. (The red-hot Tampa Bay Rays, winners of eight of their last 10 games, trailed Boston by just a half-game as the week began.) 2. Their bitter rival New York Yankees are not only way down in fourth place in the division, trailing Boston by 7-1/2 games, but are in a mess involving Alex Rodriquez, who likely faces a long suspension involving his alleged use of performance enhancing drugs. The A-Rod case is really a high stakes affair that in some ways could prove both a positive and a negative for the Yankees. Reports earlier this week indicated that A-Rods suspension could be handed down as early as this week a suspension that could run the remainder of this season, next season and possibly even a lifetime suspension. Remember, this is not the first time that Rodriquez has been tainted for using PEDs. A lifetime ban would potentially save the Yankees an estimated $98 million, the balance they owe him from a 10-year, $275 million contract signed in 2007. Conversely, the weak-hitting Yankees desperately need the offense A-Rod could provide. The 38-year-old third-baseman is fifth on the all-time home run list with 647 dingers. Rodriquez is one of 15 to 20 players that reportedly have been linked to the nowclosed Biogenesis clinic, a South Florida operation run by Anthony Bosch, who has cooperated with Major League Baseball investigators. Just recently, Milwaukee outfielder Ryan Braun accepted a 65-game suspension the remainder of the season for his involvement with Biogenesis. Just when we thought the ugly scandal of baseball and drugs was behind us, the Biogenesis mess surfaces. Youve got to wonder when it will stop and when these millionaire players will learn. Most likely, the Red Sox Nation isnt crying over the dilemma facing the Yankees. Twins Birth For Twins Joe Mauer The royal birth in England was upstaged in Minneapolis last week when the Twins All-Star Joe Mauer and his wife, Maddie, became parents of twin girls, Maren Virginia and Emily Teresa. And the proud papa Joe barely made it to the delivery room after a cross-country charter flight from Anaheim, California, where the Twins were playing. The original due date was not until the end of August, but Mauer learned last Wednesday during batting practice that his wife was headed to the hospital. After a mad scramble to arrange a charter, he arrived just in time to witness the birth without much time to spare. Both girls weighed 4 pounds, 15 ounces and are doing fine as are mother and father. Under Major League collective bargaining agreement, players are allowed three days paternity leave with pay. If more than three days are needed, the player has to be placed on the restricted list without pay. Mauer is earning $23 million this year $125,683 a day. SPORTS QUIZ 1. In 2012, Matt Harrison tied the mark for most victories in a season by a Texas Rangers left-hander. Who else holds the record? 2.

One of the most dreaded words in a pet owners vocabulary. These fetid creatures have been a plague (liter ally) to man and animal throughout history. While fleas rarely cause the life threatening illnesses of days gone by, they are still a common source of mor bidity, disease and disgust in our modern world. These tenacious creatures can jump three feet, crawl right through your screen, and lay up to 25 eggs per day. In general, they prefer pets to people, but have been known to feed on pet owners. Even though bubonic plague in humans, for which fleas are the vector, is rarely seen today, these critters can still cause illness. When ingested by pets, they carry the most common tapeworm seen in dogs and cats. When present in large numbers, these blood sucking parasites can cause anemia, and in severe cases death, with puppies and kittens being most affected. Adult dogs and cats can develop allergies to flea saliva, setting off self-mutilation in the form of scratching and itching. This results in infected skin, fur loss and a malodorous pet. Highly allergic pets can be affected by only a few flea bites per week. Pet owners can be subject to itchy pets and sleepless nights. Flea eggs on the bed can lead to pulling back the sheets and seeing half-inch flea larvae doing push-ups before your eyes.There was a time when I would spend half of my Saturday mornings explaining flea control to clients. Treatments were directed toward the yard, the house and the pet, with none of them working well. Yard treatments were ineffective, house treatments included exterminators and foggers, and flea dips were sometimes toxic to pets as well as the fleas. There was no silver bullet when it came to flea control.Things began to change with the introduction of the drug program in the mid-1990s. This insect growth regulator only killed flea offspring, but it worked as advertised and brought relief to millions of pets and their owners. There was a lag time between treatment and results, but pet owners finally had a safe product they could believe in. Science soon brought us a new generation of topical treatments which proved safe and effective in controlling fleas. Instead of 20 minute sermons on flea control, I was able to condense my presentation to, Get a box of this product. All of the fleas, be they adults or new hatchlings, needed to eat. When they jumped on treated pets, they were, in most cases, dead before they could bite or lay eggs. The flea life cycle would be broken and life for pets, pet owners and veterinarians (as they had happy clients) continued on page 17B Insurance Tip Rising Flood Insurance Ratesby Marge MeekYouve probably heard about skyrocketing flood insurance rates over the last several months and the beginning of those rate increases will begin on October 1. The first homes to be hit will be houses known as PreFIRM. On our islands, those houses are typically ground level homes that were built before federal flood regulations went into effect. On Sanibel, that date was April 1979; on Captiva, that date was August 1984. Those homes flood insurance were subsidized to help people afford federal flood insurance, because they were built before flood protection was defined. The government is eliminating those subsidies. Here is an example of how their flood rates will jump when the new law goes into effect on October 1. Currently, Pre-FIRM houses dont require elevation certificates to obtain flood insurance, but a homeowner will pay more if the house is owned by a non-primary resident. In my example at maximum coverage, the premium would be just over $3,000 for non-primary and just over $2,700 for a resident owner. After October 1, any sales on PreFIRM homes will require a surveyors elevation certificate showing if the house was built below the base flood elevation. No longer would primary or non-primary residents pay different premium, because the houses will be accurately rated. It stands to reason our ground level homes are below what is considered base flood elevation as Post-FIRM houses are raised or elevated. In this example, I assumed the house was five feet below the required flood elevation and the increased premium came in at $12,600. While this certainly impacts the sales of these homes, the legislation goes further by looking at the puchase date. Pre-FIRM home flood insurance pur chased after July 6, 2012 also could see rate increases. When the policy renews after October 1, 2013, the owner must get an elevation certificate to have his flood insurance renewed. These homes will have a 25 percent increase annually until the program feels they are actuarially rated or the elevation certificate rating is less expensive. This is the beginning of rate increases and changing rules that will affect our flood premiums. There is Cassidy Amendment that passed the House and has moved to the Senate that would delay for one year additional parts of National Flood Insurance Program. I ask you to follow what is happening on this legislation and communicate your concern to Congressman Trey Radel andcontinued on page 21B CHILDRENS EDUCATION CENTER OF THE ISLANDS350 Casa Ybel Road, Sanibel Island Celebrating 39 Years of Dedication to Education FOR PRESCHOOL CHILDREN LIMITED SPACE IS AVAILABLE FOR AGES 2 5 YEARS OLD F LORIDA VOLUNTARY PREKINDERGARTEN PROVIDER C ONTACT: JANA YATES, DIRECTOR(239) 472-4538Se habla Espaol

19B ISLAND SUN AUGUST 2, 2013 S chool S martby S helley M. G reggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My child will be going to kindergarten in August. I am just not sure that he is ready to go. We have the option of going to a great daycare for another year. What are some things I should look for so I am sure that he will do well in kindergarten? April N., Fort Myers Beach April, It is a difficult decision to enroll your child in kindergarten when you still have some doubts about his readiness. Although your child has now reached the age when he is allowed to begin school, it is important to also be assured that your child is cognitively and emotionally ready to start kindergarten. Listed below are a few helpful hints from Virginia Academy of School Psychologists the school to help you assess if your child is developmentally ready for this big step. Cognitive Skills words in a sentence low, red, blue, orange and phone number and a few numbers (if taught) objects Language Skills names simple direction tions correctly ing with others plurals, pronouns and tenses Gross Motor Skills able to start, stop and turn ping, hopping and swinging Fine Motor Skills and designs lished assistance Social/Emotional Skills toys for pretend play, but may confuse fantasy and reality at times wrong doesnt always want to own, but still have fears of things like loud noises, the dark, animals and some people may still act them out Remember that each child grows at his/her own pace. Therefore, the infor mation in this section is based on what the average kindergarten child is able to do. You know your child best. If you feel that your child may have some delays in his development, it is important to speak to your childs pediatrician or school per sonnel about your concerns.

Insects were here long before people and will be here long after we are gone. Proof of this can be seen in the rapid that provided lights-out flea control only tion products continue to be introduced and effective flea control is still available. Your veterinarian is the best source for these products and instructions on how they are most effectively used. Failure to achieve flea control can occur for many reasons. Resistance to flea meds is a common problem. There are a number of ineffective knock-off medications that contain products no longer recommended by veterinarians. One of the most common reasons for poor flea control is not putting all pets in a given household on flea control medications. If one pet is on flea meds and a second is not, that second animal will be a constant reservoir for new fleas in the environment. As stated earlier, fleas prefer pets to people. If you see fleas jumping on you, odds are there is a massive infestation. Fleas will jump from pet to pet as they only spend a third of their time on their host. For this reason, flea shampoos are largely ineffective. Most flea dips and sprays lose efficacy once dry. New, effective flea control medications last for a full month, so if you miss a flea at the time of administration, the insect will be dealt with in time. Finally, half of pets that we see with itchy skin have no fleas. This is because itchy skin is seen not only with fleas and flea allergies, but with other allergies as well. That is a topic for another day but comb and run it through your pets fur. You might see fleas directly, or their curly black feces (flea dirt). If in doubt, add a drop of water to the black specks. If you blood), your pet has fleas. Sometimes evidence takes the form of red dots on white sheets and counter tops, or a tapeworm larvae pasted along your pets bottom. If you suspect fleas, you probably have them. The good news is that, unlike days gone by, a pet owner with a good product and a good battle plan can get the upper hand on fleas. The key word here being battle, as the war, to one degree or another will likely be an endless one. Dr. Mark Mathusa, DVM is a licensed veterinarian on Sanibel.

20B ISLAND SUN AUGUST 2, 2013 What do you do if a trust becomes a problem yet the trust itself is irrevocable and cant be changed? The trust might be irrevocable because it was originally established that way or the grantor is deceased. Are there options? The answer to that question is Yes! First, lets review what problems might exist in a trust. Common examples include a trust that has mandatory distributions to a beneficiary who doesnt have the maturity to handle the money, a change in family or financial circumstances, changes to the tax laws which render the trust obsolete or otherwise unworkable, too restrictive provisions imposed on the trustee and/or the beneficiaries, ambiguities that cause conflict between beneficiaries and a desire to change a problem trustee. There are actually a number of different strategies that may be employed when a problem trust is otherwise irrevocable. Ill briefly mention a few of those strategies here: Change May Be Permitted By Trust Instrument ItselfSometimes, the answer lies buried in the trust instrument itself. If a beneficiary holds a power of appointment, for example, he or she may be able to change the ultimate distribution of the assets at some point or another. Beneficiaries may also be able to remove a problem trustee. A thorough review of the trust instrument is always a good first step.Decanting When a trusts purpose remains good but its provisions obsolete for legal or tax reasons, sometimes decanting the assets from the old trust to a newly created trust is possible. Think of this as you would decant wine from its original bottle into a carafe its much the same concept. By breathing new air and provisions into the trust administration of its assets, the problems that exist today may be solved. There are a number of statutory legal requirements that must be satisfied before decanting is possible. Unanimous approval of all qualified beneficiaries (as defined by Florida law) is usually necessary as well. Judicial Or Nonjudicial ModificationWhere the trust instrument does not allow for the contemplated change, and if decanting is not an option, the parties may consider judicial modification. Here, the party that wants the change to the trust will file an action in Circuit Court asking a Judge to Order the change in the trust provisions. Here, one has to allege that there is a valid purpose behind the modification, such as the trust is no longer consistent with the grantors intended purposes. Here, one would argue that the purposes of the trust have already been fulfilled or have become illegal, impossible, wasteful or impractical to fulfill.Another such argument is that due to unforeseen circumstances, compliance with the trust provisions would substantially impair or defeat a material purpose of the trust. Yet another is that a material purpose of the trust no longer exists. This may be seen in an educational trust where all of the beneficiaries have already earned their diplomas. Florida law also provides that a Judge can issue an Order changing a trust terms where compliance with the terms are not in the best interest of the trust beneficiaries. Numerous cases involving trusts that require beneficiaries to marry within their religious faith, or attend a certain school to achieve a certain degree, or engage in similar specific behavior have been modified where the Court believed the provisions to be against public policy and not in the best interests of the beneficiary. The Florida statutes also allow modifications to trusts where it is clear that there was a mistake made within their provisions, a scriveners error, or a problem with the tax law subsequent to the signing of the trust. Most of these changes must be made by a Court through the judicial process. But Florida law also allows the trustee and all of the qualified beneficiaries to unanimously agree to change trust provisions without a Court Order outside of the judicial process. This method is preferred as it saves time and money. In order to do this, very specific factors must be present. The original date of the trust must be after January 1, 2001, the grantor must be deceased, the trust cannot have a charitable interest, and the trust cannot be subject to the pre-1997 rule against perpetuities governing how long the trust may stay in existence. There are many legal and tax consequences associated with changing a problem trust so consultation with a trust attorney is advised before acting. But all hope is not lost if you are either administering or are a beneficiary of a problem trust you may have viable options. Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at www.sbshlaw.com.

21B ISLAND SUN AUGUST 2, 2013 Is My Canal Safe To Swim In?by Bryan HayesThere could be something in your canal that could hurt you. Yes, there may be a shark, gator or some overly zealous manatee, but theres more of a likelihood that the threat is manmade. There is a newer inherent problem with boats, docks and electricity. You have probably heard about this issue; if not, lets hope you dont experience it first hand. The term is called electrical shock drowning (ESD). The ESD issue arises from electrical leakage. This is where electricity from dock power finds its way into the water that surrounds your boat. This could be a deadly situation if you are swimming in this water near your dock. To understand how this happens, we have to remember a couple rules of electricity. The first rule is that electricity must find its way back to the source; if it doesnt, than theres no electricity. The second rule is that electricity will try every available path to get back to its source. And lastly, electricity will always take the path of least resistance. Now that we understand the rules, lets explore how we run into problems with boats. It used to be that boats had a motor that we started with batteries. Often we would recharge these batteries with on-board alternators when the engine is running or if you go way back in time you would charge these batteries by removing them and charging them in the garage. With modern advancement, we now have shore power. Here is a scenario: We get back from a day on the water and plug our ship-toshore power into our boat. No batteries to pull, just plug it in and all is good. Well... we hope. Not to over-complicate things or get to in depth: with a boat, we deal with corrosion and abuse that our house will never see. We have both alternating current (a/c) and direct current (d/c) when we are plugged into shore power. Occasionally, this corrosive/ abusive environment can create problems with the electrical system. If these two different types of power cross paths, we can have a problem. So now that we know what it is and hopefully have a better understanding of how it happens, what can we do to insure that we are safe at our dock? lem, test the water, its easy to do. Go online and search preventing ESD. marinas, If you must swim at your dock for maintenance, unplug your ship-toshore power during the swim. a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) just like the ones in your kitchen and bath. If unsure, have them checked. ask that the electrical system be looked at for corrosion and loose connections and tested for any voltage leakage. plugs and receptacles that where designed to work together. nuisance tripping. If your GFCI keeps tripping, call an electrician to find out why; someones life could depend on it. Now with all of that said, the danger of electrical shock drowning is more prevalent in freshwater, but can happen in saltwater also. Bryan Hayes is a Sanibel air conditioning contractor.

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, I am not the grandmother my family would like me to be, but I try to do my best. For years, I devoted my time to our kids and their activities. We went to their games; their lives were the center of our focus, but now we think these retirement years are our time time to have fun and enjoy and do the things we werent able to do when we were raising kids. We are a part of the grandkids lives, but not as involved as the parents think we should be. What do other grandparents do? Aubrey Dear Aubrey, Recently, I read parts of a new book The New Face Of Grandparenting by Donald Schmitz, a former teacher who holds graduate degrees in education and human development. Schmitz talks about the three varieties of grandparenting: First, been there done that; second, help when asked grandparents; and third, the parents forever grandparents. My personal experience, and with friends, some are so involved they want to micro-manage their grandchildrens lives and make up to them what they did not do or regret not doing for their own children. Others are less involved and dont want to interfere, then others are so fed up with their own kids and the grandchildren, they now want a totally different life. Time to do the things they couldnt do before. We all probably fall somewhere in between. It seems that so many adult children are shocked when their parents dont act like they did when they were in their 40s and dont seem to realize their parents are in their horizon years and have differ ent emotional needs. Lizzie Dear Aubrey, The role of grandparent can take on very different shapes. What I think is important is that the role of grandpar ent remain flexible and meets the needs of everyone, including the person in the grandparent role. Not all grandparents want or can be a grandparent for a variety of reasons. Not all adult children can or want their parents involved with their children for a variety of reasons. Not all children want or can have their grandpar ents around. You and your family need to deter mine the grandparenting expectations. At first blush, it is great to have grandchildren that want you around and adult children that want you around as well. That is something very good to work with. So work with it and enjoy family time as well as free retirement time. Pryce Lizzie and Pryces email address is momandmeaging@hotmail.com. Eden Energy MedicineS eeking Inspiration? L et Heaven Rush Inby Karen L. Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAML(03-12)We all have moments when we feel alone and dont know which way to turn to seek the answer we so ache to find. So, if you are feeling the need for inspiration; or are feeling anguish because you have a long-standing illness that just wont heal; or you are at a cross-roads in your life where the next step will dramatically change the course of lifes journey; or literally or figuratively you are feeling shut-in or confined or just seem to have your mind going in continuous tight circles; or just simply are feeling lost, forlorn, alone or in despair then it is time to connect with energies that will feed and nourish you. Donna Eden likes to remind us that matter follows energy and that our universe is comprised of multi-dimensional intelligence. By engaging in the exercise of Heaven Rushing In, you are touching the sacred dimension of that higher intelligence to provide answers and guidance that is easily attainable if you just ask and open yourself to the experience. Although the exercises name includes the word heaven, the concept is to seek connectedness with the source, whatever that source maybe in your belief system, which is viewed as having divine energies larger than your own. If possible, do this exercise outdoors, or even better, under the stars to invite the physical and metaphysical energy fields to you. Remember that we are all part of an interconnected universe and can access that sense of oneness with practice. The technique is as follows: Step 1. Stand with feet hip width apart. After rubbing the palms of hands briskly together, place the palms on the front of each thigh. Feel the connection between your hands, legs and the earth, all grounding you. Step 2. On an inhale, bring your hands together in a prayer position in front of you heart. Hold for several seconds and then exhale. Step 3. On an inhale, extend your hands out from the sides, bringing them in an arch overhead, while opening your hands, heart and arms to the heavens to allow the energy to enter. Both hands are touching the heavens. Step 4. Exhale. Continue to hold this position as long as it feels good to you, while breathing at a normal rate. Step 5. Move the hands to your heart as you bring the source energy to you. Your hands are on a vortex called Heaven Rushing In. Experience the energy rejuvenating you. Step 6. Place your energized hands at any place on your body where it is needed. The exercise can now end by placing your hands over your heart as you started or open your hands again to the Universe for more. Either way, you should now feel much more connected, in tune and nourished. Enjoy the journey. Have fun with your energy! Next weeks topic is Meridians: The Most Physical of the Nine Systems. If you have a questions for Karen, email her at ksemmelmanenergy@ gmail.com. Learn more at www.semmelmanenergy.com. EEM does not diagnose or cure illness, but working with subtle energies of the body has been shown to help many conditions. G ot A Problem? D r. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: How does humor reduce the negative effects of stress?A: Good humor reduces the negative effects of stress. We have a choice: to live in fear and be unhappy or to live in love and be happy. Live, laugh, love! When we practice all three to their fullest, we are celebrating each moment and the gift of life. In todays society, we all need a good laugh to keep our spirits in check. A sense of humor emerges when you accept things as they are. Enlightened souls (like the Dalai Lama) laugh often. Norman Cousins, editor of Saturday Evening Review, said: Good spirits are a vital part of life. Denying joy is one of the greatest deprivations on this planet! Cousins ought to know. He was faced with a serious degenerative condition. He began reading Dr. Hans Selyes The Stress of Life and examined what role his emotions played in his illness. He decided that love, hope, humor and laughter did have merit in the healing process. How did he come to this conclusion? Cousins watched classic episodes of the television show Candid Camera. He also spent 10 minutes of each day belly continued on page 23B

23B ISLAND SUN AUGUST 2, 2013 From page 22BDr. Connielaughing. He discovered the joy of loosening up the abdomen and relaxing the solar plexus muscles. Cousins later wrote the book, Anatomy Of An Illness. He mentioned that just Ten minutes of laughter allowed two hours of pain-free sleep. Can one literally laugh him or herself back to health? Why not? Laughter is truly healing. Physiologically speaking, it boosts your immune system and helps the brain release endorphins, which are natural pain relievers and mood lifters. Laughter increases immunity by increasing gamma interferon, which speeds up the production of new immune cells. People who laugh release nervous energy built up from repressed thoughts. Famed psychiatrist Sigmund Freud suggested that the act of laughter may release the stored energy of sexual and hostile impulses suppressed by the conscious mind. He believed the greater the suppression of thoughts, the greater the laughter needed to release them. In my stress management workshops, I tell the participants to belt out a good belly laugh for at least 25 seconds. Not only is it good for reducing blood pressure, stimulating circulation, facilitating digestion, reducing tension, it is contagious. When someone in the room sees another person laughing, he starts laughing. Then in no time, everyone is laughing. Laughter is also a great ice breaker and a wonderful way to release stress. Sometimes when we get so serious, we need to start laughing and be able to see that we get ourselves so uptight over the silliest things. The best time to revel in the humor is when we are at our wits end. Instead of BMWing (bitch, moan and whine), see the humor; its a great alternative. Studies show that children laugh up to 400 times a day while adults may laugh a couple times a day. When we enter adulthood, most of us get caught up in the seriousness of life. Were tired, were stressed, were miserable and oh so serious. I ask participants in my seminars to write about the last time they remember having a good belly laugh. I encourage them to visualize the event; where they were, whom they were with, what triggered the laugh. At this point, the group is usually somber and quiet. I usually prod them with Gee, this is so serious! A few people laugh. Then I have the group share their stories, and it only takes a few moments before everyone in the room is laughing and having fun. As the room lights up and everyone is happy and joyful, the participants realize how serious they were just before the exercise. They usually observe that the exercise was a great way to make them realize that they need to laugh everyday. deaRPharmacistS elenium Helps Hashimotos A nd G raves D iseaseby S uzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: I have Hashimotos thyroid disease, and my husband has Graves. We are a perfect match because he makes too much and I make too little. Advice? BL, Dallas, Texas Youre little thyroid is a small gland with a big function. Located at the base of your throat, your thyroid produces hormones that control your metabolism (as in fat-burning ability) and regulates the rhythm of your heart and your body temperature. That explains why you eat like a bird and gain weight, while your husband eats a horse and stays thin. People like that either have a healthy thyroid and good metabolism, or they have intestinal parasites! Well, anyway, point is, one glitch in your thyroid and dangerous consequences can ensue, ranging from encephalopathy to heartbeat irregularities. Most people think hypothyroidism is strictly about fatigue, cold sensitivity and weight gain. But news flash: it causes misery head to toe. The opposite of hypothyroidism is hyperthyroidism, where excessive thyroid hormone is produced causing weight loss, rapid heartbeat and heat intolerance (and 100 more symptoms). Hyperthyroidism is often referred to as Graves disease and auto-immune condition where the body attacks its own thyroid gland. A goiter in the neck can occur. Whether you have hypo or hyperthyroidism, selenium is one trace mineral that may help. There are others which Ive written about in the past (see my article archives). Selenium has been shown in clinical trials to either slow the progression of or reduce symptoms of thyroid conditions, meaning any imbalance (hyper or hypo). Selenium is directly tied to the health of your thyroid gland, so discuss this mineral with your doctor. Your precious stash of selenium may be mugged by... wait for it... your medication! Surprised? Well, unfortunately its true. Your medicine might be crashing your thyroid over time, and this was covered in the selenium chapter in my book, Drug Muggers. Here are some common muggers of selenium: If you take any of those, selenium supplementation may be critical for you. And just FYI, its not just medicine, certain medical conditions and beverages affect selenium status. Recently, scientists discovered a certain gene is associated with thyroid cancer. This gene usually stops tumor growth, and when lifestyle factors turn it off in your body, thyroid tumors are more apt to grow. Im approaching my word count, so if youd like more details about thyroid disease, this cancer gene, how to switch it back on or anything else, sign up for my health tips newsletter at my website, in the banner, upper right-hand corner. One more thing, selenium-rich foods include walnuts, tuna (not too much, mer cury!), shrimp, eggs, cheese, turkey, beef and oatmeal. I like Brazil nuts because eating four per day gives you about 200 micrograms of selenium. Do not make home-made Brazil nut milk like I did... you will overload!

While there, a special inmate became my handler. We did everything together! We walked together. We played together. I even slept in a crate right next to his cot. As a team, we both learned valuable lessons. I am house trained, leash trained and know voice commands. Would you consider giving me the loving home I deserve? I am two years old and my adoption fee is only $25 (regularly $75) during Animal Services Theres No Place Like Home adoption promotion. They call me Tiptoe and I was only two weeks old when I came to the shelter with my littermates. We went to a wonderful foster home where we learned to be sociable, loving little kitties. My foster mom says Im outgoing and playful and will make an excellent lap kitty. If you want cute and lovable, Id be perfect! My adoption fee is only $10 Animal Services promotion. For information about this weeks pets, call 533-7387 (LEE-PETS) or log on to Animal Services website at www.LeeLostPets.com. When calling, refer to the animals ID number. The website updates every hour so you will be able to see if these or any other pets are still available. The shelter is open for adoptions from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The shelter is located at 5600 Banner Drive, Fort Myers, next to the Lee County Sheriffs Office, off Six Mile Cypress Parkway. All adoptions include spay/neuter surgery, age-appropriate vaccinations, rabies vaccination and county license if three months or older, flea treatment, worming, heartworm test for dogs six months and over, feline AIDS and leukemia test for cats, training DVD, 10-day health guarantee, and a bag of Science Diet pet food. The adoption package is valued at $500. Tiptoe ID# 566462 Cabella ID# 552848 photos by squaredogphoto.com Humane S ociety Earns G rant For X-Ray MachineThe Gulf Coast Humane Society (GCHS) received a $25,000 challenge grant for a veterinary clinic x-ray machine. New gifts received prior to December 31, 2013 will be matched, up to $25,000, for the GCHS Veterinary Clinic. Donations can be made in per son, by mail or on the website at www.gulfcoasthumanesociety.org, through PayPal. The GCHS clinic is a full-service veterinary clinic open to the public six days a week. All funds above operating costs go directly back to support the shelter pets of the Gulf Coast Humane Society. Having a digital x-ray machine in the clinic will allow staff to diagnose and treat sick and injured pets right away. No longer will a pet have to be transported to another hospital for x-rays. With the addition of this x-ray machine, GCHS will be able to provide high quality care to hundreds more dogs and cats each year in its modernized clinic. This is a great opportunity for Gulf Coast Humane Society supporters to double their investment. For more information about the Gulf Coast Humane Society, call 332-0364 or email Jennifer@gulfcoasthumanesociety.org. The Gulf Coast Humane Society is at 2010 Arcadia Boulevard in Fort Myers.
