Open to the public, the boardwalk crosses a brackish wetland between the school and the refuges Indigo Trail. Weaving through mangroves, it features a two-story covered pavilion and observation tower. (For security reasons, a locked fence will separate it from the school.) According to Supervisory Refuge Ranger Toni Westland, the project is one of only a handful of school-refuge partnerships in the nation that are physically connected by an educational boardwalk.continued on page 8 Standing on Ding Darlings new Wildlife Education Boardwalk are, from left, Amy Nowacki, Susan Cassell, Becky Wolff and Jess Shelton photo by Ken RasiExchange S tudents Experience America On S anibelby Jeff LysiakWhen Michael and Carole Anne Fallon experienced the joy of sharing their home, their culture and their wisdom with a pair of cousins who live in China last year, they knew they wanted to do it again this summer. So, when the opportunity to host two young girls from foreign lands came about once again, the Fallons originally from Scotland jumped at the chance. We thought it would be nice to have children in the house again, said the couple, empty nesters who moved to Sanibel 10 years ago. Through Education First, an international company which promotes student cultural exchange, the Fallons hosted Sara Alicante from Bilbao, Spain and Zhang Xiao Yin from Guangzho, China. The teenagers spent three weeks on Sanibel, arriving in the United States on July 18.continued on page 12 Most of the exchange students headed east towards Lighthouse Beach, but some crossed the island and explored Tarpon Bay Beach photo by Jeff Lysiak

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 20132 Young Photographers Point Their Lenses At Historical VillageThe Sanibel Historical Museum and Village hosted photographer David Meardon and his 7th grade students recently to give them a chance to hone their skills on buildings and objects of early Sanibel. Meardon, a 35-year Sanibel resident, offers his class to about 10 students at a time through BIG ARTS. Hes been teaching this course for four years. He remembers a particular part of the museum fondly when it was in its original location and Clarence Rutland was living in his own house. Accompanying Meardon to the historical village were students Elizabeth Meardon, Julia Halston, Alexandra Music, Haley See and Jason Perkins. The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village is now closed for the off-season and will reopen November 6, when its hours will be 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays.

The Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation is monitoring and tracking water conditions with our west coast partners, providing information about what is happening to our river, estuary and coastal waters. We hope to educate and empower water managers and elected officials to make changes to operations and infrastructure to improve conditions in the Caloosahatchee. We need your help now to speak up for the health of our natural communities, our local economy and our quality of life. Here is a synopsis of whats happening, why its happening and what we can each do to change the current course. We hope you will help us and take action. Whats Going On With Our Water A wet spring and very wet early summer have delivered more rain than the greater Everglades ecosystem that stretches from Orlando to Florida Bay, Fort Myers to Stuart can hold. So a lot of freshwater is running into the Kissimmee River and then into Lake Okeechobee, where water levels are high and endangering the dike around the lake. The excess water, no longer able to flow south because of sugarcane and crops growing in the EAA (Everglades Agricultural Area), is shunted west to the Caloosahatchee estuary and east to the St. Lucie estuary. The impact is the same on both coasts: lethal levels of freshwater are killing and displacing marine life including oysters and seagrass that cannot move out of the way. Fish and shellfish nursery also is lost, washed out into the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean. continued on page 14 This is a before-and-after combined with the 2013 photo San Carlos Bay looking north toward the Sanibel Causeway in April 2010, when the water was clear photo courtesy Rusty Farst.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 20134 Summer River Cruises The 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 winter estate facing the river. He also built an 1,800-foot-long wood pier with entertaining areas and a boathouse for his electric launch, the Reliance. 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. The Edison & Ford Winter Estates is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. For more information, visit www.edisonfordwinterestates.org.

5 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 2013 Islanders Identify Mystery Building For MuseumThe Sanibel Historical Museum and Village received many calls from islanders identifying the building recently printed in the newspaper as the showroom of Sanibel Landscaping, a business owned by Tom Schnabel. The business, which many callers said was the premier landscaping company on the island at the time (late 1970s to approximately 2000), was sold and the building sat vacant on its eight acres of property for many years. Diane Irwin, Schnabels assistant for more than 20 years, said the property was so enormous, people would ring a big bell that was kept at the showroom to call for service. Irwin thinks that bell is the one in the restored schoolhouse at the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village and that Schnabel purchased it from a shop owned by Adelaide Bailey, Francis Baileys second wife. When Schnabel left Sanibel, Irwin said, he set the bell on the steps of the Rutland building and left. Staff at the museum are working to gather more information about this. Schnabel lived in a house behind the showroom, down by the river, in what one caller referred to as hippie style. Everyone said he was an absolutely charming man. The exact location of the building was just to the east of the old Pirate Playhouse (now in the historical village, restored to the old schoolhouse it once was), and east of Purdy. Museum Manager Emilie Alfino expressed her thanks to everyone who responded to the request for information. It was a great experience for me because it gave me the chance to talk to a lot of islanders about a little piece of island history, Alfino said. I appreciate every call, even after we knew the buildings identity. Every caller had something new to tell me. Thanks to them, the museum has another piece of the Sanibel puzzle in place. The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village is now closed for the offseason and will re-open November 6, when its hours will be 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays. Admission will be $10 for those 18 and older, free fpr children and members. For more information, visit www.sanibelmuseum.org.

Now, Kirkland wants to expand the tours to other parts of the island but there appear to be some roadblocks ahead. The issue was highly controversial back then, and promises to be no less so now. On Tuesday, Kirkland with the support of Vice Mayor Doug Congress asked council to consider allowing the tours to go further afield. His request makes a lot of sense, said Congress, who noted that he has reviewed the history of the tours. He is not requesting renting out Segways, only to expand his tours. We have been if not incident-free, pretty close to incident-free. It has been a pretty safe guided tour. We need to look at the ordinance and loosen up some screws, Congress added. After much discussion about the process of considering an ordinance amendment, council voted 5-0 to move ahead and the revised ordinance will be on the agenda for a first hearing on September 7. If approved, it will get a second public hearing on September 17. But thats not the end of the road. If it is approved, Kirkland will then have to apply to the planning commission for a conditional use permit under the new ordinance. The commission meetings will also have public input. Patti Souza, a member of the Sanibel Bicycle Club board, said all nine board members support Kirklands bid. She noted that the shared use paths are now 10 feet wide and that safety was more of an issue eight years ago, when some paths were only seven feet wide. But Wayne Ponader, resident, was opposed to broadening the Segway tours, saying they would be one more attraction and that was not what Sanibel is about. The City of Sanibel prefers to remain unique, he said. He called any expansion the camels nose that would lead to more tours. Another resident, David Bath, recalled the heated debate the last time around and called for a broad discussion. He also cited public safety. Councilman Jim Jennings said he favored Kirklands request, saying, He has proved he can run his business safely. This is long overdue. I dont think they (Segways) are unsafe. Kirkand listened to the discussion, then said, It looks like we are in for a long debate again. I apologize for that. Mayor: T ime T o G et T ough On L ake O Releasesby A nne MitchellWith water quality on the front burner due to an exceptionally wet rainy season, Sanibel Mayor Kevin Ruane wants to step up the citys stance on protecting the beaches from the damage done by massive discharges from Lake Okeechobee. Ruane told the city council on Tuesday that talking about harm to the environment has not been enough to get the attention or action of the powers that be. Its time, he said, to talk about the effect on jobs, the economy and real estate. At his urging, the council agreed to look into hiring Gravina, Smith, Matte and Arnold of Fort Myers for an initial $50,000 to handle a PR campaign; and to put Sanibels Director of N atural Resources, James Evans, full time on the water issue and hire others to cover Evans administrative duties. The money will come from Sanibels reserves set aside for environmental impact. Lake Okeechobee, which contains nutrient-rich and polluted waters from adjacent farmland as well as from surrounding areas, is now at 15.91 feet. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers discharges lake water to the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie rivers to lower the level and prevent damage to the surrounding dike, which is in poor condition. Last year at this time, Evans said, the lake level was 12 feet. N ot enough is being done to construct overflow areas and above ground storage for all that water and its a 15-year process to get appropriations from Congress. Ruane said hes known around the state and county as the business guy and he wants to flex that muscle by emphasizing the economic damage the releases cause. Councilman Mick Denham, who has long been Sanibels point man on water quality, agreed with Ruanes suggestion, but cautioned, We have to recognize that the solutions to these problems are extremely limited. Sometimes you have to beat a bigger drum and make more noise, said Councilman Marty Harrity. It is time the business community got involved and took a much stronger position. Ric Base, president of the Sanibel-Captiva Chamber of Commerce, applauded the move and agreed that talk of jobs gets peoples attention. Mike Valiquette, former chairman of PURRE, an organization dedicated to restoring rivers and estuaries, pledged his help by saying, This is exactly what we were looking for in 2002. In other water quality action, the city authorized the City Manager to reapply for a Department of Environmental Protection permit for beach clean-up, should it become necessary. The city will also update the action plan it had six years ago when several feet of seaweed piled on Sanibels beaches and had to be removed.continued on page 11

7 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 2013 Council Urges Lake Storage PlanSanibel Mayor Kevin Ruane and the Sanibel City Council have sent a letter to the South Florida Water Management District regarding the immediate need to develop all short-term and long-term storage systems for the Kissimmee chain of lakes, increase disbursed water storage throughout the systems and maximize all storage opportunities and to hold more water during times of emergency. Visit www.mysanibel.com to read the letter. Sanibel CERT Looking For VolunteersThe Sanibel CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) is looking for volunteers to participate in upcoming training. The training will consist of eight aspects of response to emergencies such as hurricanes, tornados and others. The Sanibel CERT members are members of the community that are willing to help others in a time of need, when our police officers and firefighters are busy with other aspects of a disaster. CERT members learn first-aid, preparedness and overall safety. The course will take place over eight weeks, meeting once a week for approximately two hours a week. The course takes place at Sanibel Fire Station #1 on Palm Ridge Road on Tuesday evenings from 6 to 9 p.m. The course starts on September 10 and runs through November 5. Please contact Assistant Chief Matt Scott at 472-5525 or mscott@sanibelfire. com if you would like to participate in this training opportunity. City Monitoring Coastal ChangesBeginning Monday, August 5, the City of Sanibel is surveying the islands beaches to monitor coastal erosion and accretion. This work will not interfere with access or usage of any of the beaches and will take approximately three weeks to complete, according to city officials. This years summer monitoring project has been awarded to Sea Diversified, Inc. in the amount of $79,750, half of which is funded by the Lee County Tourist Development Council with the remaining half being funded by beach parking fees. The project is part of a continuing effort to collect and analyze beach profile data. Contact the Sanibel Public Works Department at 472-6397 if you have any questions regarding the project.

From page 1Education BoardwalkIve been on the board for a number of years, and we have long wanted to connect the Indigo Trail with The Sanibel School without walking along San-Cap Road, said Susan Cassell of the Ding Darling Wildlife Society, who received a sneak preview of the new facility last week. The boardwalk is going to be a great place where you can see alligators and wading birds. Amy Nowacki, the architect who designed the boardwalk with multi-level features, reported that she was very happy to see her concept brought to reality. It wasnt easy, trying to fit the structure into the space that we had, but we did it, said Nowacki. The extra eight feet in height the second level gives you really offers a wonderful view. And as the water levels fluctuate throughout the year as the seasons change, the children are going to be able to see different types of aquatic environments. She called the facility an outdoor classroom that will be enjoyed by many. The official ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Wildlife Education Boardwalk will take place at 1 p.m. on Monday, August 12. For more information, call 472-1100. We spent a lot of time on the design and working with teachers at the school, said Cassell. The open design will allow an entire class to be brought out there, but still be sheltered from the sun. Its a wonderful environment that still preserves nature. Major donations for the project came from the Jim Sprankle Duck Decoy Exhibit sponsorships, the George and Miriam Martin Foundation, and memorials to the late Win Kloosterman.I think the children are really going to be surprised the first time they see it, added Nowacki, because when youre walking towards it, you cant really see it but then all of a sudden there it is!

School Board Balks At Sharing Tot Lot Expensesby Anne MitchellThe so called Tot Lot at the island ballfields was funded in a threeway agreement between Sanibel, Lee County and the county school board on whose land it sits. Now, the playground equipment needs to be replaced and to be made ADAcompliant but the school boards architect says it shouldnt contribute to the $12,000 cost because the school does not use the playground. The playground is used by siblings of school age little league players to keep them occupied during games. Mayor Kevin Ruane was exasperated with the school boards stance, saying he felt like telling the school principal that fifty percent of our citizens are seniors and dont want to pay for this (the playground). However, he said the city should proceed with plans for the playground and, as a last resort, use city funds to cover the $4,000 shortfall. Ruane also noted that citizen donations for the playground are tax deductible. Garbage Pick-Up Costs Down A Bitby Anne MitchellAt a time when most taxes are going up, Sanibels garbage collection rates are going down if only a little. The city council on Tuesday approved the 2013-14 residential and commercial solid waste rates, which for the past few years have been levied as part of owners tax bills. The rates include recyclables and horticultural waste as well as garbage. Currently, homeowners pay $272.33 for curbside pickup and $360.27 for back door pickup. The new rates are $270.34 and $358.28, respectively. Busy Crosswalks To Be Realignedby Anne MitchellSanibels three busiest crosswalks are under review and various alternatives for relocation were presented to the city council on Tuesday. The crosswalks are: Flamingo; and Periwinkle Way; and Road. The first to be done is near the Dairy ferred alternative calls for a mid-block crosswalk across Periwinkle Way from the existing shared use path on the south side to a proposed new section of path on the north side. The new section of shared use path on the north side would run from east to connect to the path at $40,000 price tag. The council deferred a decision on the near Jerrys Market, and the one at ed until the coming fiscal year, allowing time for further study. walk came under discussion with pros and and is usually manned by a traffic cop. The preferred alternative calls for realigning the Jerrys Shopping Center driveway, removing the existing northsouth crosswalk across Periwinkle Way on the east side of the intersection, constructing a new north-south crosswalk on the west side of the intersections and adding a bike/pedestrian pull-off area at the southwest corner of the intersection. City Manager Judie Zimomra said the city has yet to meet with property owners to seek easements. The easements might dictate it, she added. Sanibels crosswalk policy hasnt been changed since 1997. hired to carry out a study of the areas, including vehicular, bicyclist and pedestrian counts, vehicle speed analysis and field observation. City Donates Truck To CHRby Anne MitchellProving the old adage that one mans trash is anothers treasure, instead of disposing of a Ford F150 truck thats seen better days, the City of Sanibel will donate it to Community Housing & Resources (CHR), the citys housing agency. When the disposal of obsolete or surplus assets came up before council for approval on Tuesday, Councilman Mick Denham noted that CHR is in need of a truck. He said the maintenance person is using his own vehicle and that the agency would appreciate the citys old one, which is a 2004 model with 38,000 miles on police boat to and from the boat ramp. The city puts its value at $1,548. City Manager Judie Zimomra said it needs some work and CHR is welcome to inspect it.

From page 1Exchange Students On SanibelAccording to Carole Anne, dur ing their mornings, students take classes which teach them about the American experience, and specifically about Florida history and culture. The students who hail from five different countries: China, Spain, Russia, France and Hong Kong are also enrolled in English language classes. During the afternoons, the 147 foreign exchange students explore all that Southwest Florida has to offer. Theyve gone to the roller rink, bowling, the water park in Naples, Fort Myers Beach, shopping at Miromar Outlets, Coconut Point and the Edison Mall, added Fallon. On Friday afternoon, five buses filled with Education First students and chaperones turned onto Main Street, next to Billys Bikes & Rentals, where rows upon rows of bicycles were reserved for the teenage VIPs. Most of the students headed east on Periwinkle Way towards Lighthouse Beach, but some crossed the island and explored Tarpon Bay Beach. I liked going to Miami and shopping and going to the beach, said Sara Alicante, who seemed very eager to make her way back to her favorite Sanibel beach. I like to go find shells, too. Zhang Xiao Yin, who said that her favorite food in America was pizza, noted that her favorite experience on the island was swimming in the ocean. And staying with my host family, she added with a smile. One evening during the trip, the group staged an Amazing Race-themed event at McGregor Baptist Church in Fort Myers, with the students preparing dishes from their own countries, performing skits or singing songs traditional to their own cultures. In addition, the girls got to travel to Walt Disney World and Universal Studios in Orlando and Busch Gardens in Tampa during their stay, which ended on August 6. I just loved seeing the delight on the girls faces, said Carole Anne. We would go shopping, and youd see that reaction on their faces when theyd try on a piece of clothing. Im also amazed that a child of 13 from China would come so far from home to stay with a total stranger. They really are interested in learning about our country and our culture and improving their English. The Fallons also said that they will probably be a host family again, should the opportunity become available. In fact, perhaps well take a student in as soon as January, depending upon whats going on with our family, said Carole Anne, who was busy taking pictures of both girls as they rode their bikes. Really, its a wonderful education for us, too.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 201314 From page 3High Lake O LevelsThis excess freshwater is running off the land so fast it carries tannins from plants and other organic material with it, causing the unusually dark water. Flood control projects that began in the 1940s were designed to drain water off the land to accommodate growth and development in south Florida. So the high rainfall this year has saturated the land with water, raised water levels in Lake Okeechobee and necessitated water releases to lower the lake. The excess water is coming from both the Caloosahatchee watershed in Lee, Hendry and Glades counties as well as from Lake O releases. The solutions are twofold: increase storage throughout the system and redirect water to more historic flow patterns. Drainage projects created 70 years ago for flood control no longer serve our state or community interests or economies. Short term and long term solutions are needed at both the federal and state levels to change the outcomes and prevent devastation of our marine life, beaches, local economies and quality of life. This is our legacy; this is our heritage to next generations. Changes are needed now. Take Action! Demand The SFWMD Deliver On Promises Demand that the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) implement planned storage projects and update their operations. Since 2005 when the SFWMD promised new storage projects to prevent the disaster of 200405, there is not one project constructed or operational in the Caloosahatchee watershed.

Please attend if you can and insist that the Caloosahatchee be included in the scope of the hearings, and press for the implementation of federal and state solutions to these issues. Urge The U.S. House To Pass WRDA SCCF will be attending U.S. Representative Trey Radels listening session on Wednesday, August 7 at Edison College to tell him that we need the U.S. House to pass a WRDA bill. A Water Resources Development Act bill is the only way to get water projects approved for construction and funding across the nation. It has been six years since the last WRDA and it is needed to authorize long term storage projects to help reduce high flow conditions.

17 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 2013 CROW Case Of The Week: Florida Mottled Ducklingby Patricia MolloyAn abandoned or orphaned mottled duckling was admitted to CROW last month. The tiny patient spent the first weeks of his stay in a warm incubator, eating four to six nutrient-rich meals per day. As one of the few non-migratory ducks in North America, the mottled duck (Anas fulvigula) has resided in Florida for thousands of years. It prefers coastal marshes and wetlands with shallow, fresh water and abundant vegetation. Unlike birds such as the mockingbird and blue jay, which raise their hatchlings in a nest for weeks, a female mottled duck will escort her babies to the water within 48 hours of hatching. Young mottled ducks will take their first flight between the ages of 60 and 70 days. One of the greatest concerns for avians at the clinic is the development of bumblefoot, a bacterial infection that patients can contract after spending too much time on their feet. Make sure you check the bottom of his feet every day, Dr. Heather cautioned the clinics staff and students. While rarely seen in the wild, bumblefoot most commonly affects captive or domesticated birds. It is the bane of wildlife rehabilitation, added Dr. Heather. As one valuable tool in preventing development of the condition, certain patients are prescribed a daily dose of tub time. CROW has several bathtubs to accommodate the hectic feeding and physical therapy schedules of its avian and reptilian patients. While undergoing supportive care at the wildlife hospital, the male mottled duckling grew by leaps and bounds. (He) is doing fine. He has moved to a cage and is no longer in a incubator, stated Dr. Kristen. The duckling will soon be transferred outside to one of the speciesspecific enclosures at CROW. When he is old enough to survive on his own, patient #1887 will be returned to the wetlands of his birth. Once there, it is hoped that he will find a mate and go on to be the proud papa of his own brood of fuzzy ducklings. If you would like to feed beautiful songbirds, graze gopher tortoises or help transport injured animals to the wildlife clinic, call 472-3644, ext. 229 or go to CROWs website. Training is provided.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 201318 The Sound Bounces To Life This Weekby Capt. Matt MitchellWith good daytime tides, generally calm conditions and thunderstorms holding off until late afternoon, this was a great week to be out fishing on Pine Island Sound. With such slick calm mornings it was amazing to see all the life in the sound. It ranged from schools of small bait getting chased by ladyfish, jacks and trout, to watching tarpon roll around these bait schools. Despite the water being so brown from the fresh water run-off, the bay was more alive with fish this week than I have seen it in months. From Chino Island to Captiva Rocks and most places in between, huge schools of small bait fish were easy to locate. All around these bait schools the whole food chain was in action. This set up is a great way to fish your way up the food chain while keeping a rod bent. You can start out by either throwing a small 1/4 inch mesh cast net on the bait schools or rig up with small spoons and jigs. I like to make one throw of the cast net then put the small white baits under a float. The variety of fish feeding in and around these bait schools was awesome. One cast would be a big trout, then mackerel, jacks, bluefish, mangrove snapper and on and on. While fishing around Redlight Shoal we even had a snook and a few small reds while fishing the inchlong white baits. After saving a few live ladyfish, it is time to move up the food chain and catch something bigger. Either hook a live ladyfish up under a float or cut it in to two large pieces and simply pitch out the large chunks on a big circle hook. Although we only had a few tarpon hookups doing this, the amount of rolling tarpon seen throughout the bay was very impressive with what seems like close to as many tarpon around as there was in May and June. Bull sharks and blacktip sharks of all sizes made up the majority of the action when fishing with ladyfish. Bull sharks were more of a problem while grouper fishing in Captiva Pass this week. Multiple times after fighting a quality gag grouper up from the bottom, a large bull shark would grab it whole right next to the boat. I did manage a few keeper sized gags out of the pass this week while dropping large pinfish down to the bottom. During calm conditions it was possible to hold the boat right on top of the good structure where the grouper live. Big morning high tides also had the redfish feeding well all over the sound. Ladyfish chunks and live pinfish were the baits of choice, skipped way back under the trees. One of my favorite ways to fish for redfish this time of year is out in open water on shallow flats around mullet schools. I rig with a live medium pinfish or grunt thats roughly two feet under a float. Most of the reds I have been catching in the southern sound by this method have been in the upper end of the slot with quite a few over the 27-inch max. The strikes you get fishing a pinfish like this are awesome; often you can watch the redfish chase the bait around before completely sticking its head out the water to inhale the bait. These are some of the most aggressive redfish bites you will ever see. Snook fishing in and around the passes this week was on fire if you managed to be in the right pass on the right part of the tide. The first few hours of the outgoing seemed to be the best action. Big live pinfish drifted on the bottom through the passes caught lots of snook over the 30-inch mark along with a few real monsters that could just not be turned before breaking off on the structure. After near record rainfall this past few months, our water is so dark you really would not think fishing would be as good as it is. Seeing so much fish life and so much happening out on the water this week was much-needed relief from what have been pretty tough conditions for anglers this past few weeks. 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.

19 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 2013Birds Eye ViewKiller Whales In Captivityby Mark Bird WestallThere is a new documentary film that has started opening in American theaters this summer that is sure to reopen the controversy about killer whales being kept in captivity for human entertainment. The documentary is entitled, Blackfish, directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite. This documentary was primarily initiated to document the sad story of the death of Dawn Brancheau when she was dragged underwater by the killer whale known as Tilikum and drowned in front of a shocked audience at Sea World in 2012. As Cowperthwaite researched the incident further, however, the focus eventually evolved into addressing the darker issue of whether these large, migratory, highly intellectual marine mammals should be forced into captivity in the first place. I understand that many humans have a powerful desire to connect with and observe the wild creatures that share this world with us. I mean, look at how many people flock (no pun intended) to Sanibels Wildlife Drive in the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge and spend hours and hours doing just that. I, personally, have said many times that one of the major reasons why I became a professional naturalist and worked so closely with ospreys, bald eagles, alligators and the islands American crocodile was so I had a justifiable excuse to get close to the wildlife. And one of the stereotyped rationalizations for the existence of things like zoos and circuses is that keeping those animals in captivity and presenting them to the publics view offers one of the few ways that the general public can actually have an experience with wild animals. But there is another side to the argument that suggests that with eco-tourism opportunities so available to the public these days, isnt it much more fascinating and memorable to have these wildlife experiences for real in the animals natural habitat instead of seeing them in some sort of caged environment, sometimes doing tricks for the audiences enjoyment? Im sure that a trip to British Columbia and chartering a killer whale-watching tour is not that much more expensive than coming to Sea World to see the same animals in an aquarium. By the way, seeing killer whales in the wild is still one of my To do before I die things I have left to accomplish. But if more people went into the wild to see these beautiful creatures in their natural habitat, then big companies like Anheuser-Busch would not be able to make so much money. I guarantee Anheuser-Busch does not own Sea World because it is a conservation organization. The beer company owns Sea World because there are big bucks in humans watching animals do tricks in captivity. Just for a second, put yourself in Tilikums shoes (fins). As I understand it, he was captured as a two-year-old in the waters around Iceland and stolen from his mother and family pod in 1983. And the way he was captured I found enlightening as to the intelligence of these animals. As the humans approached the pod in fastmoving boats, the males of the pod broke away from the females and young ones and tried to lure the boats into chasing them. The ploy worked at first, but the humans had a spotter-plane that was able to redirect the boats to their prey (the youngsters) before the females and young could escape the area. After being removed from his mother, Tilikum was placed in a relatively small aquarium with other, more dominant and unrelated females, where he was constantly picked on by the larger animals. Then he was taught to do tricks! Now, imagine someone doing that to a human being. And it shouldnt take much to imagine this because humans have been doing that to each other for thousands of years. Some humans, maybe most, would become good, obedient slaves. But there would always be a few who would remember who destroyed their lives and act out violently if they saw the opportunity. I have not seen the documentary so I am a little bit nervous about bringing it up because I know how polarizing the issue of killer whales in captivity can be. Also, I know how much the media likes to sensationalize how naturally dangerous wildlife is without really understanding what is going on when animals act a certain way. So I dont know if this documentary will be objective or not. But I would suggest you go see this documentary and make up your mind yourself. See if you think it is ok for highly intelligent non-human animals to be stolen from their families and trained to do tricks solely for human entertainment. Personally, I see that places like Sea World expand our knowledge of these fascinating creatures, but killer whales in captivity only have about half the life expectancy that they can have in the continued on page 20 I CANNOT TELL A LIE...IT'S SIMPLY THE BEST...

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 201320 An Inside Look At Wildlife Recovery The CROW Picture Show offers an insiders look at why critters come to the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, and features photos of the wild animals who wind up there. Last year, Southwest Floridas only wildlife hospital cared for 3,583 sick, injured and orphaned animals. Of the 200 different species, 61 percent were birds, with 33 percent mammals and six percent reptiles. Due to restrictions imposed by governmental agencies, CROW cannot allow visitors to view patients in person. But in this hour-long presentation, visitors will see numerous photos of current and past patients, with commentary by Claudia Burns, a veteran clinic volunteer. The next CROW Picture Show will be held on Friday, August 9 at 11 a.m. in the CROW Healing Winds Visitor Education Center at 3883 SanibelCaptiva Road, across from The Sanibel School. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for teenagers, and free for members and children 12 and under. The fee includes the presentation, plus the opportunity to explore the hospitals hands-on educational facility and become familiar with CROWs efforts to save wildlife through compassion, care and education. For more information, call 472-3644 ext. 228 or visit www.crowclinic.org.

I also cannot justify the damage we cause to the family groups in the wild when their young are ripped away from their mothers. But my way of thinking is probably in the minority. In our innate (I believe) desire to commune with nature, we as a species, find it very difficult to see the pain and suffering (both physical and mental) we cause in satisfying that desire.

21 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 2013 Plant SmartRed Powder Puffby G erri ReavesRed powder puff (Calliandra haematocephala) is a non-native flowering tree notable for pretty flowers and feathery foliage. It is a relative of the royal poinciana and mimosa and a member of the pea family. The bright blooms attract hummingbirds, butterflies and honeybees. Multi-trunked with low branches, it grows 12 to 15 feet tall with a spread of equal measure. Its a fast grower that develops an open rounded crown if not pruned back. The bipinnate leaves have an even number of shiny oblong leaflets, which make for finetextured foliage. The flowers of two to three inches across range in color from deep red to watermelon pink. They bloom most profusely in the warmer months, with the fuzzy flowers bursting from buds that resemble a cluster of bright berries. Grow red powder puff in full sun to partial shade where it will receive plenty of moisture. Once established, it is very drought tolerant. It does not tolerate salt, however, so is not suitable for coastal landscapes. It can be used as a hedge, specimen or container plant. Propagate it with cuttings or with the seeds in the threeto six-inch brown fruit pods. Sources: Florida Landscape Plants by John V. Watkins and Thomas J.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 201322 An Audubon Florida Special PlaceBald Point State Parkby Eric DraperAfter a month of recovery from a broken leg, I finally escaped the house with a birthday outing to Bald Point State Park. Just an hour drive from Tallahassee, the 4,000-acre state park is a favorite destination with its calm beaches, coastal pine forests and marshes. The trip was a cautious venture timed to catch a sweet spot between the July afternoon heat and bugs at sunset. Our goal was to test my crutch skills on the sugar sand beach in search of some solitude to picnic and watch shorebirds as the tide went out. Parking was easy and the boardwalk led us right to the shore, where we set up chairs and enjoyed an eastern view of the Gulf. Not far from our spot a family of five splashed in the water. A boy excitedly urged his father to come look at the horseshoe crab he found in the shallows. The scene reminded me of bringing our kids to this very beach years earlier. How wonderful that this family has access to a state park. The beach soon delivered a bounty of watchable wildlife. Brown pelicans gathered in small groups and loafed offshore. A willet and a Wilsons plover worked their way along the beach, searching the wet sand for dinner. Not far from where we sat, an osprey hit the water hard, emerging while struggling to fly off with a good size fish. I would have been fine with just these birds, but I knew that even in summer, Bald Point had much more to offer. The breeze lulled me into a memory about a visit to this park last fall, when a friend and I bicycled from nearby Alligator Point. We wandered into the new west park entrance and followed the road through some spectacularly beautiful coastal pine flatwoods. The road provides canoe and kayak access to Lake Tucker, which drains into Chaires Creek. The creek meanders through marshes and sparse forests before emptying into Ochlockonee Bay. I later learned that a photo taken of the creek that day graced my friends holiday card. Although patience was my birthday mantra, the memory of that cool weather made me wish that my broken leg would heal quickly so I could plan to explore more of this beautiful piece of wilderness by foot, bicycle and kayak. My daydream was broken when a dozen American oystercatchers flew just above the shoreline in formation. A species in general decline, these handsome birds with heavy, bright orange bills are the objects of a new national effort by Audubon and other organizations to better protect shorebird habitats along the Atlantic Flyway. Bald Point is near the edge of oystercatchers Florida range. Next, a Sandwich tern flew south along the beach and not long after, a royal tern flew north out over the water. Further up the shore, a snowy egret was joined by a pair of sanderlings, which promptly raced each other till they were One of the Bald Point beaches bordered by pine flatland that volunteers help to maintain Lazy Flamingo, Inc. 6520-C Pine Avenue Sanibel, FL 33957 239-472-5353 Lazy Flamingo 3, Inc. 16501 Stringfellow Rd Bokeelia, FL 33922 239-283-5959 Lazy Flamingo 2, Inc. 1036 Periwinkle Way Sanibel, FL 33957 239-472-6939 Lazy Flamingo 4, Inc. 12951 McGregor Blvd. Ft.

The nearby family proved a bit scary for the birds and they took off in their distinctive flight. The day came to an end with the sinking sun and arrival of both gnats and acrobatic barn swallows. As reluctant as we were to leave the beautiful beach, we knew that hordes of hungry mosquitos would soon arrive. And, in spite of our nourishing, I hoped to grab a sandwich at one of the many fish houses lining the road back to Tallahassee. On the way back to the car, an earnest young ranger met us on the boardwalk. It was clear that he took great pride in being the steward of this special place along the Florida coast. I thanked him for his service. Leaving Bald Point and passing the intermittent beach houses that dot parcels sold for development before the park was created, we talked about the good fortune of having this land available for the public. The park was once part of the vast Northwest Florida holdings of the St. Joe Company. Funds from the states popular land acquisition program, Florida Forever, bought the land and helped pay for the modest entrances, parking lots, picnic pavilions and restrooms. This was at the heyday of Floridas park system expansion. Parks such as Bald Point are at risk of cutbacks in state funds for management of conservation lands. The fire dependent woods must be managed with prescribed burns, and the beaches themselves will only support birdlife if human disturbance and predators are managed. Even more risky are legislators who see the expense public parks as too much government. Our parks are most secure when we use them and when volunteers pitch in to help the park service to manage them well today and for future generations.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 201324 Edgy Play At Lab Theaterby Di SaggauTheres a hurricane brewing outside the house and inside during Laboratory Theaters production of The House of Yes. Talk about intriguing theater, this black comedy is about the Pascals, an amoral upper-class family in Virginia, who are fixated on their neighbors, the Kennedy clan. Its Thanksgiving l988 and everyone is awaiting the arrival of Marty (Todd Fleck), especially his twin sister Jackie-O (Kathleen Taylor.) She is taken aback big time when Marty arrives with his fianc Lesly (Tera Nicole Miller), a sweet tempered waitress who smells like powdered sugar. It soon becomes obvious Marty and Jackie share more than sibling love. In fact, its downright incestuous. There is another brother, Anthony, (Adam Kazmarz) the product of a different father. Hes enamored with the naive Lesly and manages to seduce her in the upstairs bedroom while Marty and Jackie-O do their snuggling downstairs. Jackie is a nutcase when not on her meds and her idea of what to wear to a costume party is absolutely unacceptable. I have no doubt you will agree with me on that one. Observing all the goings on is the family matriarch Mrs. Pascal (Nancy Antonio) who is also harboring a deep secret. This is one twisted family but in spite of it all the clever dialogue delivers quite a few laughs. I could not for the life of me figure out the plays title so I did some digging online and found out that the playwright Wendy MacLeod got the title from a grafitto she found in a New Haven bathroom. She felt it was the perfect title for a house of immorality where no one has ever said no to them. The Pascals are insulated by wealth and tare otally arrogant. Director Nykkie Rizley has put together a strong cast for this challenging production. It runs 85 minutes with no intermission and after the last scene you are left knowing for sure that money does not always buy happiness. Its a play well worth seeing and it will have you talking about it for some time. It you like cutting-edge theater, this ones for you. The House of Yes plays through August 24 at Laboratory Theater of Florida, 1634 Woodford Avenue in the Fort Myers River District. For tickets call 218-0481.

Its 1952, and America is racing against the Russians for the secret of the H-bomb, Dwight Eisenhower is racing against Adlai Stevenson for the White House, and I Love Lucy is racing up the television ratings on Monday nights. Meanwhile, detective Maggie Pelletier has to find out who dumped the dead guy in the harbor or lose out on a honeymoon in Havana. And could the engagement of Senator McCarthys daughter to a suspected Soviet spy have anything to do with all of this? And the bombwhat about the bomb? Hollingers Red Herring is a fun and farcical look at Red Scare America. It is a love story, a murder mystery, and an espionage plot all rolled into a comedy about marriage and other explosive devices. Red Herring was the winner of the 2000 Barrymore Award for Outstanding New Play. The show plays August 9 to 24. Thursday, Friday and Saturdays at 8 p.m. with one Sunday matinee at 2 p.m. on August 18. Tickets are $20 each. Opening night is pay what you will and Thursday nights are buy one get one half off.

25 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 2013 Shell Museum Collection: What Is Type?by Jos H. Leal, Ph. D. Curator/ Director of EducationDid you know that The BaileyMatthews Shell Museum houses an important collection of type specimens of mollusks? The type collection at the museum is, by virtue of its scientific value, one of the most important sections of the institutions holdings. It is stored in a special cabinet with casters, which would allow for quick removal in case of a natural disaster. When a new, previously unknown species of animal or plant is formally named, that description is based on particular specimens studied by the researcher. Those specimens are called types, and they are usually placed in natural history museums, or in a research center, or university that houses a scientific collection. Reference to types in the description article includes the name of the museum (or museums) and respective collection numbers: it is common that the author of a new species should opt to deposit types of the newly described species in more than one museum. The Shell Museum types are, following the system used for its general scientific collection, catalogued by number. For instance, in 2008, museum curator Dr. Jos H. Leal described and named a couple of new and bizarre-looking species in the new genus Dilemma. (A genus is a group of related species.) The main type, or holotype, for one of these new species is deposited in the Shell Museum, under collection number BMSM 15029. That species was named Dilemma frumarkernorum, after the two individuals who collected the original specimens in deep water off the Florida Keys Frank Frumar and Steve Kern (the author of a new species chooses the name of that species based on some rules of zoological nomenclature.) The fact that different researchers from all over the world choose the Shell Museum as the final depository for their types is invaluable, said Jos Leal. The very presence of a type collection in our museum enhances its scientific credibility and reputation in the field of natural history museums.

The Sanibel Bookshop will be hosting White for a book signing, taking place at 1571 Periwinkle Way (additional parking will be available across the street at VIP), on Thursday, September 5 starting at 6:30 p.m. White will give a short talk and question-and-answer session. The book signing will last about one hour, or until White has finished signing. Books must be purchased from the Sanibel Bookshop to receive a ticket for the signing line. In this gripping new novel, a 20-yearold unsolved murder from Floridas pothauling days gets Hannah Smiths attention, but so does a more immediate problem. A private museum devoted solely to the states earliest settlers and pioneers has been announced, and many of Hannahs friends and neighbors in Sulfur Wells are being pressured to make contributions. The problem is, the whole thing is a scam, and when Hannah sets out to uncover whoevers behind it, she discovers that things are even worse than she thought. The museum scam is a front for a real estate power play, her entire village is in danger of being wiped out and the forces behind it have no intention of letting anything, or anyone, stand in their way. If you cant attend the event but would like to purchase an autographed book, please call 472-5223 to pre-pay and well have one or more copies signed and reserved for you.

rfn BUSINESS REAL ESTATE CLASSIFIEDS VOL. 21, NO. 7 SANIBEL & CAPTIVA ISLANDS, FLORIDA AUGUST 9, 2013 BSECTIONSubmarine Veterans Memorial: Part I of IIF rom D ream T o Realityby Jeff L ysiakWhen local members of the United States Submarine Veterans decided to restore the damaged memorial marker located adjacent to the Southwest Florida Vietnam Veterans Memorial at the intersection of Colonial and McGregor boulevards in Fort Myers they called upon one of the worlds most respected and talented artisans to perform some of the work on the new and improved monument. Sanibel sculptor Lucas Century, whose work on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington, DC gained him inter national acclaim, will etch the name of the 65 submarines lost in the line of duty, along with the United States Submarine Veterans logo and creed, on three black granite slabs. The brass plate on the original memorial had been destroyed by acid rain and tree sap, said Ken Jordan, a member of the local United States Submarine Veterans chapter, who collected $4,090 to erect a new monument. Donations came from friends, relatives, neighbors, local businesses, members of the American Legion and Elks Club of Cape Coral Post #2596. Members of the United States Submarine Veterans comprised of some 162 chapters across the country are active, retired, reserve or honorably discharged veterans of the elite fighting force of the United States Navy. Their mission includes sharing the history of submarines as protectors of the waters surrounding America over the past 113 years and the brave 35,002 men who have served aboard those vessels. According to John Troia, a member of the Cape Coral chapter of the United States Submarine Veterans, Solid Top Granite of Fort Myers gave the group a substantial discount on their products and services, which will include the cost of the final cuts and bevel work. However, more important to them is the increased visibility the new monument will receive. A lot of people didnt even know the (original) Submarine Veterans memorial was there, said Troia. With Luc Century adding the large logo on one side of the monument, people are going to be able to see it driving by or when theyre passing by on their bicycles. Its definitely going to increase our visibility.continued on page 7B Ken Jordan and John Troia hold the template for the United States Submarine Veterans logo, which will be etched into the memorial in Fort Myers Ken Jordan and John Troia with the United States Submarine Veterans creed, which will be etched in black granite by Sanibel sculptor Luc Century Patch memorializing the USS Scorpion (SSN589), sunk on May 22, 1968 with 99 sailors lost.

Rotary Happenings submitted by S hirley JewellHappy 60th Birthday! Rotarian, Reverend Dr. John Danner. We should all celebrate our BIG birthdays like John. Instead of moaning and groaning about this coming-ofage birthday, he decided to present himself a personal challenge: The 60 for 60 Challenge. His way of celebrating the BIG 60 was by raising awareness and funds for the Wheelchair Foundation (Sanibel-Captiva Rotary has been involved with the Wheelchair Foundation for a number of years). Here is how he did it. He announced that he was doing a sponsored ride from Fort Lauderdale to Key West, a 180-mile trip, 60 miles a day for three days, from July 31 to August 2 to raise funds to pur chase 60 wheelchairs ($100 per chair). He announced this challenge to Rotary, church family, friends, and family and they responded by contributing $14,600 with a $3,500 Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club match to sponsor this birthday ride. This gift will more than double the original intent of the 60 for 60 wheelchair purchasing power. John, all of your fellow SanibelCaptiva Rotarians are extremely proud of your effort in supporting the Wheelchair Foundation and thank everyone who contributed. Club President Scot Congress installed and welcomed our first new member of this Rotary year, Jack Alexander, CPA auditor with Stroemer & Co., Fort Myers/Sanibel. Jack was sponsored by Rotarian John Pryor, a FISH board member, who has worked with Jack at FISH. Each new member comes to Rotary for their own reasons and membership chair, Janet Strickland, and her committee meet with new applicants and explain and provide information to them regarding the basics of Rotary and discuss how we can fulfill their desire to work in certain areas to support our motto of Service Above Self. The club has a broad spectrum of projects that we support and we welcome ideas and energy in working on our current projects or bringing ideas forth regarding new ones that fit the object of Rotary. If anyone would like more information regarding membership, please contact Janet Strickland at jmslaw@centurylink. net. Still on the topic of membership, Rotarian Jim Reed brought to the members attention the front cover and article from August 2013 Rotary Magazine The Rotarian of what might be a familiar face to some of islanders. The picture and article was of regular visitor to Sanibel, former Senator Dick Lugar, titled The Gentleman from Indiana. Jim campaigned for Senator Lugar back in the early days of his political career in Indiana and wanted us to know what an outstanding person he is and how his political star was shining for the very start. Lugar, the six-term senator and former head of the Foreign Relations Committee, is a 55-year Rotarian. I will now segue from a leader in American politics to a leadership program sponsored by Rotary called S4TL (Seminar for Tomorrows Leaders). S4TL is a powerful leadership-training program for high school students. It is organized annually by a board of directors of Rotary senior staff from districts 6890, 6950 and 6960 in mid-Florida. Our club sponsored Katlin Upton from Cape Coral High. She recently dropped by to tell us what an outstanding experience S4TL provides. Seminar for Tomorrows Leaders takes place on the campus of Florida Southern College in Lakeland. Students who participate in the weeklong experience hear from national motivational speakers, Rotarians and each other about the importance of making good decisions and giving back to their community. In addition, of course, they learn the values of Rotary. Lectures, discussions, rap sessions, motivational talks, and interchanges of ideas/concepts are all a part of challenging participants to develop leader ship abilities. The ultimate goal is for each student to leave with a new selfawareness. ready to not only better use their natural abilities but also to serve others in leadership throughout life. Katlin told us, that from her arrival at S4TL, she realized from the energy and positivity of her red-shirted greeters she was in for a totally different experience. This statement alone gave her an aha! moment, Dont let anyone tell you, you cant accomplish your dreams they are your dreams and if you work toward them you can make your dreams come true, she said. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets at 7 a.m. every Friday at The Dunes Golf and Tennis Club, 949 Sand Castle Road.

Forever Stamps Feature New England Coastal LighthousesFive lighthouses that for centuries enabled sailors to navigate safely in the waters along the northeastern United States, will be issued as the New England Coastal Lighthouse Forever stamps. This is the sixth issuance of the popular U.S. Postal Service lighthouse series, which features five New England Coastal Lighthouses: Portland Head (Cape Elizabeth, Maine); Portsmouth Harbor (New Castle, New Hampshire); Boston Harbor (Boston, Massachusetts); Point Judith (Narragansett, Rhode Island) and New London Harbor (New London, Connecticut).

The construction of the tower was among the first acts of the Lighthouse Establishment, a federal agency created in 1789. The original rubblestone lighthouse still stands and looks much as it did in the late 1800s. navigational aid in New Hampshire was established in Portsmouth Harbor, the citizens had demanded a lighthouse as early as 1721, it was not until 50 years beacon was lit. An iron lantern topped the 50-foot shingled tower; three copper lamps provided the light. called the Boston Harbor Light, North business community. Three years later a added to the light station.

9B ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 2013 Major League Baseball Drug Users Cheat The Clean, Honest Players by Ed FrankAmidst all the news that has been written and broadcast this past week over the suspension of 13 Major League Baseball players for their implication in the use of performance enhancing drugs, seldom if ever is mentioned the unfairness these cheaters have inflicted on those who play the game straight. You read that these penalties are costing these drug users millions in lost salaries; that these suspensions could cripple teams fighting for post-season play; that some contend they are being punished unfairly. Isnt that too bad!?! We shouldnt shed a single tear for these cheaters who have tarnished the oncesacred game of baseball. Who we should feel sorry for are the vast majority of baseball players who have remained honest to the game and have had to compete on an unleveled playing field that being competing against players who have cheated the system. Perhaps you will recall a lengthy story several years ago in Sports Illustrated about four youngsters who played here for the Fort Myers Miracle baseball team. Three fought and scrapped their way through the minor leagues only never to make it to the Majors. The fourth was a drug user who did make it to the big show, even playing for a World Series champion. This incident typifies what this present scandal the worst in baseball history is all about. The 13 players named this week and those tagged as users of PEDs in the past and dozens more who have been suspected but never officially charged have stolen baseball records and obtained multi-million dollar contracts they were not entitled to. Too often it seems the players union has came to the defense of these rules violators rather than defending the majority of their members who have played the game clean. Through the years, baseball has been known as our national pastime. These cheaters, these drug users have unfairly changed the image of baseball for years to come. The games hope for redemption lies with the majority of honest players. These are who we should cheer for. Miracle Home Thursday And Friday Against Charlotte The Fort Myers Miracle began the week with a second-half season record of 22-19, just two games behind first-place Charlotte in the Florida State League South Division. The Miracle hosts Charlotte this Thursday and Friday nights at Hammond Stadium at 7:05 p.m. The Minnesota Twins No. 2 prospect, center fielder Bryon Buxton, has returned to action for the Miracle after missing six games due to a toe injury. Buxton was promoted to the Advanced A Fort Myers last month after hitting .341 in 68 games for Low A Cedar Rapids. The talented youngster has handled the tougher pitching in the FSL, batting .278 in his first 30 games with the Miracle.

State-of-the-art dental equipment was recently installed that included sixteen new dental chairs (16-Pelton & Crane, Spirit 3003) and renovation of the dental materials lab. These upgrades will provide dental hygiene students with the most modern technology for the procedures that occur daily in the clinic and will also offer added comfort for the patients. The Dental Hygiene Clinic opened in December 2000 and serves 3,000 patients annually. The clinic is equipped with 16 dental suites, including dental radiographic units and an instrument sterilization center. The clinic incorporated electronic (paper less) patient records in 2004. Faculty, staff and students in the program also service the local community through participation in several projects such as: National Give Kids A Smile Day, Project Dentist Care, Elementary school presentations, Buckingham Exceptional Educational Program, Gulf Coast Dental Hygiene Table Clinics, JDRF Walk, Dental Health Month activities, Assisted Care Facilities Presentations, and Edisons Light House Commons Nutritional Project. The Edison State College Dental Hygiene program is fully accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation. For 18 consecutive years, graduates have earned a 100 perccent pass rate on the National Board Dental Hygiene Examination. The program boasts a 90 percent completion rate among students accepted into the program, with 258 graduates since 1995. Each class is diverse with students of various age and ethnic backgrounds. English is a second language for 30 percent of the students enrolled in the program. The Dental Hygiene program also partners with the Continuing Education Department to offer an injectable dental anesthesia course for Floridas Registered Dental Hygienists. This is a result of recent legislative change that expanded the scope of skills performed dental hygienists. The Dental Hygiene Clinic is not only a great resource for providing clinical education for our students, but also a tremendous asset for our community members who may not have access to dental care, said Karen Molumby, program director of Dental Hygiene. National attention has determined the oral health connection to other systemic conditions such as cardiovascular disease, low infant birth weight, and nutritional deficiencies. Dental hygiene focuses on the prevention and treatment of periodontal disease, through treatment and patient education. Results of national studies show that 80 percent of dental disease occurs in 20 percent of our population who are dentally underserved. Patients receive outstanding preventive dental care at an affordable price while students obtain valuable hands-on experience, supervised by our talented and experienced faculty who are licensed Dental Hygienists and Dentists, added Dr. Marie Collins, Dean, School of Health Professions.

12B ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 2013 History Of A ir Conditioningby Bryan HayesAir conditioning, or the treatment of air for comfort and productivity, dates back thousands of years. The Ancient Romans utilized waters properties of absorption and dissipation of heat long before electricity. They would channel water through walls of homes; the water would absorb heat as it passed. The result was a lower temperature in the home. It gives a whole new meaning to the term my a/c is leaking, what a mess. In 1902, Willis Havilland Carrier, only one year after graduating from Harvard with a masters degree in Engineering, developed the first generation of air conditioning as we know it today. The original unit was developed for a Brooklyn printing press. Carrier was an employee when the owner presented the problem to Carrier. The problem that needed solving was that during the hot and humid New York summers, they would have troubles with the press due to paper swelling and excessive ink dry times. Carrier brought in his new invention and once a/c was added, it dried out and cooled the building. Problem solved and a whole new way of life was born. Carrier was making a whopping $10 a week at the time. Try to imagine life with out the advancement of air conditioning and refrigeration. Please note that they are one in the same. Think what it would be like day to day without being able to store food for extended periods of time. A great deal more time would be spent on obtaining food. Imagine trying to sleep with the bugs, heat and humidity. Life definately would be much different. 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.

Last week, I wrote about a variety of ways to modify problem trusts. I mentioned one technique, trust decanting, as a viable option. Today, I thought that Id expand on what trust decanting is and how it works, as this is a little understood option that often isnt considered when it could be a solution that the family is looking for. For those of us who have oenophile tendencies, you may know that decanting is the action of pouring wine from its bottle into a wide-based container. The idea is to separate the wine from its sediment and expose a large surface of the wine to oxygen, allowing it to express its desirable aromas. Decanting also helps to soften some aromas which are overpowering or unpleasant. The same holds true when decanting a trust, which is the process of modifying an otherwise irrevocable trust to better reflect the makers intent to accommodate problems like scriveners errors, changing the situs or governing law, modifying administrative provisions, consolidate assets, take advantage of planning strategies or dealing with changed circumstances after the trust became irrevocable. When decanting, a new trust is drawn up and the contents (assets) of the old trust are then poured into the new trust. Florida law, ahead of many other states, offers a specific statute that allows decanting so long as proper notice is provided to all qualified beneficiaries, which is a legal term also defined by statute, provided that the new trust does not impair the rights of any beneficiary or adversely affect the achievement of the purposes of the original trust. Suppose, for example, that the beneficiaries of a trust want to change the way and method that trustees are removed, appointed or compensated. Here, a decanting from one trust to another with the new trustee provisions might achieve those goals. Or sometimes there might be two different trusts for each beneficiary, one created by their father and one created by their mother. Here, decanting from both trusts into a single trust could solve investment issues or even reduce the administrative expenses associated with carrying two different trusts that have substantially the same provisions for a beneficiary. On the other hand, decanting may help solve issues involving pooled trusts, which are trusts that are created for several beneficiaries. If the beneficiaries are fighting over who is entitled to the assets, or if one beneficiary needs income and the other growth, or if distributions to any one beneficiary become an issue, decanting could allow for the pooled trusts to become separate shares for each beneficiary. Another example is where there are two different trusts, one that is very liquid and one illiquid. It might make sense to combine the trusts as the liquidity could assist with the carrying costs of the illiquid assets. Perhaps a trust is overly restrictive as to its investment strategies that have now become outdated. Here, a new trust that is more liberal in its investment options may be created, and the old trust could be decanted into it. You may have a trust that was originally established in a state that imposes a state income tax and wish to move the trust situs to Florida that has no state income tax. Here, decanting can help achieve that goal. Since the tax law continually evolves, an irrevocable trust that was once tax advantageous could become disadvantageous. Here, decanting into a new trust could solve the problem. Beneficiaries who encounter unexpected problems, such as creditor issues, divorce, having their own independent wealth or even those with self-destructive behavior could benefit from decanting. Here, the objective could be to make the trust terms more restrictive so that creditors and predators cant take the assets away from a beneficiary. When creating revocable trusts that continue on for your beneficiaries, it may be a good idea to proactively provide for decanting powers so that an independent trustee (one who is also not a beneficiary to eliminate bias or tax law problems associated with having certain powers over assets) can adjust the trust to future changes in circumstances. The options should be carefully considered, since an improperly drafted decanting power could backfire and cause more harm than it does good. When including these decanting powers, moreover, you should discuss with your attorney your comfort level of allowing for such potential future modifications to your estate plan. Continuing trusts offer substantial benefits for your beneficiaries, in the form of tax savings, creditor and divorce protection. With that said, I often counsel my clients that its favorable to allow for flexibility in continuing trusts, since no one knows what the future brings. By specifically allowing for a decanting power, you can better ensure that your beneficiaries wont be caught by unexpected circumstances. Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at www.sbshlaw.com.

Hersch|Attorney, CPAFlorida Bar Board Certied, Wills, Trusts & Estates Island Sun Will Power Columnist School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My daughter is in fifth grade and her teacher has said that she has executive functioning problems that have caused her to have lower grades and do poorly in school. I am not really sure what this means. What kind of problem is this and what can I do to help my daughter? Jonas V., Fort Myers Jonas, Executive functions are basic self-regulating skills such as planning, organizing, making decisions, shifting between situations or thoughts, and controlling impulsivity. We all use these skills every day to accomplish just about everything we need to do. Kids rely on their executive functions for everything from brushing their teeth, to riding a bike and organizing a school report. Children who have poor executive functioning, including many children with ADHD and/or learning disabilities, are much more disorganized than other kids. Typically, any person with poor executive functioning take longer to do simple chores and often become overwhelmed while doing simple tasks. Schoolwork can often become a nightmare for these children because they forget assignments, books, regularly lose papers, dont know how to plan or start long term assignments until the night before they are due. Teaching organizational skills to children who have this difficulty are one of the best ways to help them according to learning specialists. Writer Rachel Ehmke, from the Child Mind Institute, provides some strategies used to teach kids and their parents to help them tackle school work as well as other responsibilities that take organization and follow-through. Checklists The steps necessary for completing a task often arent obvious to kids with executive dysfunction, and defining them clearly ahead of time makes a task less daunting and more achievable. Following a checklist of steps also minimizes the mental and emotional strain many kids with executive dysfunction experience while trying to make decisions. With a checklist, kids can focus their mental energy on the task at hand, said Ruth Lee, Med, educational therapist. Set Time Limits When making a checklist, many educational therapists also recommend assigning a time limit for each step, particularly if it is a bigger, longer-term project. Matt Cruger, PhD, director of the Child Mind Institute Learning and Development Center, likes to practice breaking down different kinds of homework assignments with kids to get them used to the steps required and how long they might take. Use A Planner Educational specialists also emphasize the critical importance of teaching children how to use a planner. Most schools require students to use a planner these days, but they often dont teach children how to use them, and it wont be obvious to a child who is overwhelmed by or uninterested in organization and planning. Establish A Routine This is particularly important for older kids, who typically struggle more to get started with their homework. Educational specialists recommend starting homework at the same time every day. Ideally, kids should come home, unpack their bag, have a snack, and then get started. Use Rewards For younger kids, putting a reward system in place to highlight the value of these new strategies. This may help kids see the connection between practicing their skills and working towards a reward. School is really hard for these kids and they will need to be encouraged to use these new strategies. These are a just a few strategies that may be helpful for your daughter. You may want to contact a school or clinical psychologist for a formal diagnosis and additional personalized strategies that will assist you and your child.

21B ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 2013 deaRPharmacistFish Oil S upplements A nd Prostate Cancer by S uzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: What do you think about fish oil being linked to prostate cancer? I used to take it everyday but stopped after hearing about it in the news. Do you still recommend it? LD, Miami, Florida My opinion is that headlines which suggest fish oils raise risk for prostate cancer are nonsense. Some people cannot even think their way around this and have given up fish oils despite scientifically-sound literature that, if printed, could fill a football stadium. I hope youre sitting down. There is no evidence that anybody in this study took fish oil dietary supplements! Nowhere in the new study does it say fish oil, it says omega 3. In 2010, researchers evaluated ethyl esters of omega 3 fatty acids. Thats actually a drug. Repeat: When you talk about ethyl esters of omega 3s, you are talking about a patented prescription version of fish oils. It would never surprise me if scientists tied a pharmaceutical drug to higher cancer risk, but the headlines I keep reading say fish oil. High-quality fish oils causing prostate cancer? Au contraire! You cannot take something natural, morph it in a laboratory, patent it and expect health benefits. You cant mess with fish oils, or anything. Thats why natural progesterone protects a womans breasts, while the synthetic drug version (medroxyprogesterone) has dozens of potential side effects. Theres vitamin D3, a natural form as opposed to D2, a drug sold as a drug. Your body has to convert the D2 drug back to natural D3, why not just buy that to begin with? Benzodiazepines, like alprazolam or lorazepam, are highly addictive and have more risks compared to natural plant extracts that bind to GABA receptors and relax you naturally. Oh my goodness, margarine! A shmear of potent food additives, colorants and fat globules versus natural butter. Trust me, do not mess with mother nature! Why were plasma levels measured when they are meaningless? Red blood cell levels were never even obtained. Common sense now, the American Heart Association, the World Health Organization, the United States Institute of Medicines Food Nutrition Board and the 2010 Dietary Guidelines For Americans advise us to eat more fatty fish so as to obtain omega-3 fish oil benefits. Theres something fishy going on... do you think those organizations are in cahoots to induce prostate cancer in the male population? Fish oils primary components are EPA or DHA. Tight studies show DHA is protective for the prostate. In 2001, a study of 6,000 Swedish men found that high fish consumption significantly lowered prostate cancer rates. In New Zealand, men with the highest DHA markers slashed prostate cancer risk by almost 40 percent. A Japanese study found omega 3 blood levels correlated to a reduction in prostate cancer. So, my conclusion is omega 3s derived from fatty fish and fish oil supplements are safe and healthy, especially when taken with GLA. Supplement properly, directions on how to do so are posted at my website. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

Dear Mom & Me, We always thought our daughter had a most unusual personality, and was difficult to be around. When she married, we enjoyed her husband and because of him we maintained a relationship. The years have passed, and being a widower and dependant on my daughter and her husband is troubling to me. He takes me grocery shopping and to my medical appointments, and without his help I could not stay in my own home. My daughter is still very difficult and now I must do as she says regardless of how I feel, and I always have to keep my mouth shut. It is dreadful to be in this position, but if I say anything, I know she will sell my house and put me in some cheap nursing home. I would really prefer to be relieved from the pain of living. How can I get out of this predicament? Lester Dear Lester, Having to depend on someone you do not feel comfortable with or you feel does not have your best interests in mind can be very difficult. Unless your daughter is your legal guardian (different from power of attorney), she can not sell your house from under you nor can she dump you into a cheap nursing home. If she was your guardian, she would have to justify to the court that her actions were in your best interest. If you feel you are at risk in your daughters care, call an attorney and explore what other options are available for your care and protection. Let a friend take you, take a taxi or some attorneys will come to the home if you are unable to go to the office. You do not have to live in fear of your daughter. There are options for you. Pryce Dear Lester, Pryce has outlined a very good plan for you. While you are well, get this resolved so you will no longer need to worry or be concerned about your future care.

ISLAND PHARMACY(Voted Best Pharmacy on The Island 6 years)CARING FOR YOU AND ABOUT YOU2330 Palm Ridge Rd. #12, Sanibel L ocal Wellness Coalition T o Host D owntown EventThe Healthy Lee movement is taking its message of healthier lifestyle choices to the streets this fall, thanks to the first ever Streets Alive event. Streets Alive will be the first signature event for Healthy Lee, the local wellness coalition created to empower and inspire the people of Lee County regarding healthy lifestyle choices through education and action. Streets Alive is focused on creating active fun for residents and visitors of all ages and abilities on streets, temporarily closed to motor vehicles, and highlighting healthier food and beverage offerings. Streets Alive was developed as our signature event because it shows attendees in a fun, family atmosphere the multitude of opportunities people in Lee County have to adopt a healthier lifestyle, said Sally Jackson, co-chairwoman of the Healthy Lee Coalition. The event is slated as an opportunity to showcase our Healthy Lee tagline: Choose. Commit. Change three simple, action-oriented steps that resonate with audiences of all ages and backgrounds. If you choose to participate, commit to healthy lifestyle choices such as good nutrition and regular exercise, you can ultimately change the way you look, feel and live, for the better. Streets Alive temporarily closes downtown streets to traffic and opens them up for people to play, including free activities such as walking, biking, aerobics, kickball, yoga and dance. The first event is set for Sunday, November 10 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the downtown Fort Myers River District. Streets Alive features instructors offering a buffet of free and accessible games, sports, dance and other movement for attendees to try. There will be several activity villages where a variety of activities and instructions will be offered, along with a series of events taking advantage of the traffic-free downtown streets. Participants of all ages and abilities are encouraged to participate, with the focus particularly being on easy-tolearn activities to get people moving. The family-friendly Streets Alive will have local restaurants and outlets along the route offering food and beverages, highlighting their most delicious and nutritious menu items. A range of other vendors will also be participating in the festivities. For more information or sponsorship options, go to www.streetsalivelee.org.

22B ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 2013 G ot A Problem? D r. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: I feel as though I am not aging well, from my body falling apart to being depressed. Is there anything I can do to overcome this negativity about aging?A: In our culture, there is no clear rite of passage through middle age into old age. Being older can be a time to come alive in ways we have never done before. So many think that when their body deteriorates, they are falling apart and its all over. Not so. There is a whole new creative part of the self that can emerge if the mind allows and accepts what is. Some think it is when you develop gray hair or wrinkles, or need to use a cane. True, in our older years we are faced with physical, psychological, economic and spiritual changes. Normal physical aging includes: tis, insomnia, poor circulation, high cholesterol, joint discomfort, muscle atrophy, vision and hearing loss and more, discoveries can help minimize these changes, allowing us to remain active and physically healthy into our senior years. lenge us emotionally. Forgetfulness and frailty can lead to loss of self-confidence social support system changes, you try to hold onto things as they are, to maintain some security. Its hard to accept that things in our lives change. If you can realize that its your own identification with these thoughts and feelings that are the cause of your suffering, you can be more accepting of lifes changes. Especially now with uncertain economic times, many boomers are downsizing. They realize they dont need all the stuff they once thought they did. Two-household couples are downsizing to much more now than a decade ago. They also are living on less money, having lost penor realized very little from investments. Be mindful that its not so much the changes but our attitude toward them that can make or break this special time in our lives. There are many activities for seniors also known as Road Scholar, is a notfor-profit organization that offers senior citizens educational and travel oppor tunities. For those seniors who are not interested in or are unable to travel, retirement communities have much to offer that range from active physical participation to lectures and discussion groups. Perhaps we can think of aging as a journey of gaining knowledge leading to wisdom. If our physical body remains healthy, that is a beautiful gift. If our physical health diminishes, we accept that, and can still continue our quest of knowledge. tion of the spiritual aspect of ourselves. Elders make up a large portion of religious congregations. Other cultures revere their elders because of their wisdom; we can, too. From page 19BOnlineto the final candidates.

Combating Human T raffickingWomen and girls are the most vulnerable and frequent victims of the heinous crime known as human trafficking, which almost always she paid for a girl and slaves are cheap these days. Other illegal crimes featur ing weapons and drugs are involved and men and boys are also victims of modern slavery, but trafficking is the only global crime where women and girls are significantly represented. The Womens Fund of Southwest Florida is working with the regions nate the work of law, order and victim support associated with modern slavery. But, because this crime does not respect local, state, national or international boundaries, it is important to establish a regional resource center to better posiForce to coordinate investigation and prosecution of the criminals and support of the victims. Plus, essential data tracking of all cases in the region will be analyzed and interpreted to empower the professionals to reduce the incidents of one of the greatest human rights challenges of the century. The victims of this crime suffer unimaginable consequences. Women and girls have unwanted pregnancies, contract physical and psychological violence, and sometimes die. The resources to treat victims are scarce, with treatment and support needed on a long term basis. Restored physical and mental health is rare and the rate of victims returning to their captors is high. This makes human trafficking a significant public health issue. against their will every day. Recent news reports state that almost half the pimps arrested in the nation-wide Operation Some of the pimps were found hiding out General Pam Bondi and leaders in the Florida legislature have passed tougher laws to make penalties much harsher and provide safe harbor for victims. Pimps (men and women) must be prosecuted For more information on how to help establish the Southwest Florida Regional contact The Womens Fund of Southwest Florida at contact@womensfundflorida. org or visit the website at www.womensfundflorida.org/programs. Eden Energy MedicineMeridians T he Most Physical Of T he N ine S ystemsby Karen L. Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAML(03-12)The meridian system is our bodys ener getic bloodstream. directly named for a primary organ with which it is associated and the other to which you will be introduced over interconnected to create the rivers of energy that affect each organ and each physiological system of our body, including the skeletal, muscular, reproductive, digestive, respiratory, circulatory, endocrine, nervous, lymphatic and immune systems. years, recognizing that each pathway (meridian) has numerous points that may be accessed to impact health. In acupuncture, these points are called acupuncture points, which may be stimulated by insertknown as acupressure points, which are accessed by touching, tapping or pressure to release or redistribute energy. If the energy of the meridian is obstructed, unregulated or compromised, the organ that it feeds is functioning less than optimally, resulting in dis-ease. If you think of the meridians as a a blockage due to an accident, than all of the traffic must be detoured. If the blockage of traffic becomes larger and larger, preventing virtually no traffic to detour, then all the routes begin to close down, creating even more chaos and the inability of community support teams to assist in resolving the accident and traffic. and starts seeking energy from other meridians like the heart or spleen, then these organs start to tire as well and other systems begin to lose optimal function. We can influence the blockage in meridians in many ways, but one of the most effective is to learn to trace the meridians with our electromagnetic meridian (directly on the skin or right above the skin), the energy of the meridian will follow the energy of the hands. By tracing a meridian forward along its defined pathway, energy is sent into the meridian to strengthen it. If tracing backwards (from its end point on the body to its beginning point), it will sedate, calm learn to trace all of the meridians, learn an affirmation associated with each, and learn some of the characteristics of each your own bodys energies, you will begin to sense if there is too much energy in the meridian and thus remove energy from it (like if you have pain along the meridian pathway) or if it needs a boost. arrhythmia, it is very beneficial to trace the meridian forward three times to boost the heart energy. Remember, though, never trace heart energy backwards. If you have a questions for Karen, email her at ksemmelmanenergy@ gmail.com. Learn more at www.semmelmanenergy.com.

We thought it would be nice to have children in the house again, said the couple, empty nesters who moved to Sanibel 10 years ago.

The Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation is monitoring and tracking water conditions with our west coast partners, providing information about what is happening to our river, estuary and coastal waters. We hope to educate and empower water managers and elected officials to make changes to operations and infrastructure to improve conditions in the Caloosahatchee. We need your help now to speak up for the health of our natural communities, our local economy and our quality of life. Here is a synopsis of whats happening, why its happening and what we can each do to change the current course. We hope you will help us and take action. Whats Going On With Our Water A wet spring and very wet early summer have delivered more rain than the greater Everglades ecosystem that stretches from Orlando to Florida Bay, Fort Myers to Stuart can hold. So a lot of freshwater is running into the Kissimmee River and then into Lake Okeechobee, where water levels are high and endangering the dike around the lake. The excess water, no longer able to flow south because of sugarcane and crops growing in the EAA (Everglades Agricultural Area), is shunted west to the Caloosahatchee estuary and east to the St. Lucie estuary. The impact is the same on both coasts: lethal levels of freshwater are killing and displacing marine life including oysters and seagrass that cannot move out of the way. Fish and shellfish nursery also is lost, washed out into the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean. continued on page 14 This is a before-and-after combined with the 2013 photo San Carlos Bay looking north toward the Sanibel Causeway in April 2010, when the water was clear photo courtesy Rusty Farst.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 20134 Summer River Cruises The 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 winter estate facing the river. He also built an 1,800-foot-long wood pier with entertaining areas and a boathouse for his electric launch, the Reliance. 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. The Edison & Ford Winter Estates is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. For more information, visit www.edisonfordwinterestates.org.

5 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 2013 Islanders Identify Mystery Building For MuseumThe Sanibel Historical Museum and Village received many calls from islanders identifying the building recently printed in the newspaper as the showroom of Sanibel Landscaping, a business owned by Tom Schnabel. The business, which many callers said was the premier landscaping company on the island at the time (late 1970s to approximately 2000), was sold and the building sat vacant on its eight acres of property for many years. Diane Irwin, Schnabels assistant for more than 20 years, said the property was so enormous, people would ring a big bell that was kept at the showroom to call for service. Irwin thinks that bell is the one in the restored schoolhouse at the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village and that Schnabel purchased it from a shop owned by Adelaide Bailey, Francis Baileys second wife. When Schnabel left Sanibel, Irwin said, he set the bell on the steps of the Rutland building and left. Staff at the museum are working to gather more information about this. Schnabel lived in a house behind the showroom, down by the river, in what one caller referred to as hippie style. Everyone said he was an absolutely charming man. The exact location of the building was just to the east of the old Pirate Playhouse (now in the historical village, restored to the old schoolhouse it once was), and east of Purdy. Museum Manager Emilie Alfino expressed her thanks to everyone who responded to the request for information. It was a great experience for me because it gave me the chance to talk to a lot of islanders about a little piece of island history, Alfino said. I appreciate every call, even after we knew the buildings identity. Every caller had something new to tell me. Thanks to them, the museum has another piece of the Sanibel puzzle in place. The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village is now closed for the offseason and will re-open November 6, when its hours will be 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays. Admission will be $10 for those 18 and older, free fpr children and members. For more information, visit www.sanibelmuseum.org.

Now, Kirkland wants to expand the tours to other parts of the island but there appear to be some roadblocks ahead. The issue was highly controversial back then, and promises to be no less so now. On Tuesday, Kirkland with the support of Vice Mayor Doug Congress asked council to consider allowing the tours to go further afield. His request makes a lot of sense, said Congress, who noted that he has reviewed the history of the tours. He is not requesting renting out Segways, only to expand his tours. We have been if not incident-free, pretty close to incident-free. It has been a pretty safe guided tour. We need to look at the ordinance and loosen up some screws, Congress added. After much discussion about the process of considering an ordinance amendment, council voted 5-0 to move ahead and the revised ordinance will be on the agenda for a first hearing on September 7. If approved, it will get a second public hearing on September 17. But thats not the end of the road. If it is approved, Kirkland will then have to apply to the planning commission for a conditional use permit under the new ordinance. The commission meetings will also have public input. Patti Souza, a member of the Sanibel Bicycle Club board, said all nine board members support Kirklands bid. She noted that the shared use paths are now 10 feet wide and that safety was more of an issue eight years ago, when some paths were only seven feet wide. But Wayne Ponader, resident, was opposed to broadening the Segway tours, saying they would be one more attraction and that was not what Sanibel is about. The City of Sanibel prefers to remain unique, he said. He called any expansion the camels nose that would lead to more tours. Another resident, David Bath, recalled the heated debate the last time around and called for a broad discussion. He also cited public safety. Councilman Jim Jennings said he favored Kirklands request, saying, He has proved he can run his business safely. This is long overdue. I dont think they (Segways) are unsafe. Kirkand listened to the discussion, then said, It looks like we are in for a long debate again. I apologize for that. Mayor: T ime T o G et T ough On L ake O Releasesby A nne MitchellWith water quality on the front burner due to an exceptionally wet rainy season, Sanibel Mayor Kevin Ruane wants to step up the citys stance on protecting the beaches from the damage done by massive discharges from Lake Okeechobee. Ruane told the city council on Tuesday that talking about harm to the environment has not been enough to get the attention or action of the powers that be. Its time, he said, to talk about the effect on jobs, the economy and real estate. At his urging, the council agreed to look into hiring Gravina, Smith, Matte and Arnold of Fort Myers for an initial $50,000 to handle a PR campaign; and to put Sanibels Director of N atural Resources, James Evans, full time on the water issue and hire others to cover Evans administrative duties. The money will come from Sanibels reserves set aside for environmental impact. Lake Okeechobee, which contains nutrient-rich and polluted waters from adjacent farmland as well as from surrounding areas, is now at 15.91 feet. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers discharges lake water to the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie rivers to lower the level and prevent damage to the surrounding dike, which is in poor condition. Last year at this time, Evans said, the lake level was 12 feet. N ot enough is being done to construct overflow areas and above ground storage for all that water and its a 15-year process to get appropriations from Congress. Ruane said hes known around the state and county as the business guy and he wants to flex that muscle by emphasizing the economic damage the releases cause. Councilman Mick Denham, who has long been Sanibels point man on water quality, agreed with Ruanes suggestion, but cautioned, We have to recognize that the solutions to these problems are extremely limited. Sometimes you have to beat a bigger drum and make more noise, said Councilman Marty Harrity. It is time the business community got involved and took a much stronger position. Ric Base, president of the Sanibel-Captiva Chamber of Commerce, applauded the move and agreed that talk of jobs gets peoples attention. Mike Valiquette, former chairman of PURRE, an organization dedicated to restoring rivers and estuaries, pledged his help by saying, This is exactly what we were looking for in 2002. In other water quality action, the city authorized the City Manager to reapply for a Department of Environmental Protection permit for beach clean-up, should it become necessary. The city will also update the action plan it had six years ago when several feet of seaweed piled on Sanibels beaches and had to be removed.continued on page 11

7 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 2013 Council Urges Lake Storage PlanSanibel Mayor Kevin Ruane and the Sanibel City Council have sent a letter to the South Florida Water Management District regarding the immediate need to develop all short-term and long-term storage systems for the Kissimmee chain of lakes, increase disbursed water storage throughout the systems and maximize all storage opportunities and to hold more water during times of emergency. Visit www.mysanibel.com to read the letter. Sanibel CERT Looking For VolunteersThe Sanibel CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) is looking for volunteers to participate in upcoming training. The training will consist of eight aspects of response to emergencies such as hurricanes, tornados and others. The Sanibel CERT members are members of the community that are willing to help others in a time of need, when our police officers and firefighters are busy with other aspects of a disaster. CERT members learn first-aid, preparedness and overall safety. The course will take place over eight weeks, meeting once a week for approximately two hours a week. The course takes place at Sanibel Fire Station #1 on Palm Ridge Road on Tuesday evenings from 6 to 9 p.m. The course starts on September 10 and runs through November 5. Please contact Assistant Chief Matt Scott at 472-5525 or mscott@sanibelfire. com if you would like to participate in this training opportunity. City Monitoring Coastal ChangesBeginning Monday, August 5, the City of Sanibel is surveying the islands beaches to monitor coastal erosion and accretion. This work will not interfere with access or usage of any of the beaches and will take approximately three weeks to complete, according to city officials. This years summer monitoring project has been awarded to Sea Diversified, Inc. in the amount of $79,750, half of which is funded by the Lee County Tourist Development Council with the remaining half being funded by beach parking fees. The project is part of a continuing effort to collect and analyze beach profile data. Contact the Sanibel Public Works Department at 472-6397 if you have any questions regarding the project.

From page 1Education BoardwalkIve been on the board for a number of years, and we have long wanted to connect the Indigo Trail with The Sanibel School without walking along San-Cap Road, said Susan Cassell of the Ding Darling Wildlife Society, who received a sneak preview of the new facility last week. The boardwalk is going to be a great place where you can see alligators and wading birds. Amy Nowacki, the architect who designed the boardwalk with multi-level features, reported that she was very happy to see her concept brought to reality. It wasnt easy, trying to fit the structure into the space that we had, but we did it, said Nowacki. The extra eight feet in height the second level gives you really offers a wonderful view. And as the water levels fluctuate throughout the year as the seasons change, the children are going to be able to see different types of aquatic environments. She called the facility an outdoor classroom that will be enjoyed by many. The official ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Wildlife Education Boardwalk will take place at 1 p.m. on Monday, August 12.

The open design will allow an entire class to be brought out there, but still be sheltered from the sun. Its a wonderful environment that still preserves nature. Major donations for the project came from the Jim Sprankle Duck Decoy Exhibit sponsorships, the George and Miriam Martin Foundation, and memorials to the late Win Kloosterman.I think the children are really going to be surprised the first time they see it, added Nowacki, because when youre walking towards it, you cant really see it but then all of a sudden there it is!

School Board Balks At Sharing Tot Lot Expensesby Anne MitchellThe so called Tot Lot at the island ballfields was funded in a threeway agreement between Sanibel, Lee County and the county school board on whose land it sits. Now, the playground equipment needs to be replaced and to be made ADAcompliant but the school boards architect says it shouldnt contribute to the $12,000 cost because the school does not use the playground. The playground is used by siblings of school age little league players to keep them occupied during games. Mayor Kevin Ruane was exasperated with the school boards stance, saying he felt like telling the school principal that fifty percent of our citizens are seniors and dont want to pay for this (the playground). However, he said the city should proceed with plans for the playground and, as a last resort, use city funds to cover the $4,000 shortfall. Ruane also noted that citizen donations for the playground are tax deductible. Garbage Pick-Up Costs Down A Bitby Anne MitchellAt a time when most taxes are going up, Sanibels garbage collection rates are going down if only a little. The city council on Tuesday approved the 2013-14 residential and commercial solid waste rates, which for the past few years have been levied as part of owners tax bills. The rates include recyclables and horticultural waste as well as garbage. Currently, homeowners pay $272.33 for curbside pickup and $360.27 for back door pickup. The new rates are $270.34 and $358.28, respectively. Busy Crosswalks To Be Realignedby Anne MitchellSanibels three busiest crosswalks are under review and various alternatives for relocation were presented to the city council on Tuesday. The crosswalks are: Flamingo; and Periwinkle Way; and Road. The first to be done is near the Dairy ferred alternative calls for a mid-block crosswalk across Periwinkle Way from the existing shared use path on the south side to a proposed new section of path on the north side. The new section of shared use path on the north side would run from east to connect to the path at $40,000 price tag. The council deferred a decision on the near Jerrys Market, and the one at ed until the coming fiscal year, allowing time for further study. walk came under discussion with pros and and is usually manned by a traffic cop. The preferred alternative calls for realigning the Jerrys Shopping Center driveway, removing the existing northsouth crosswalk across Periwinkle Way on the east side of the intersection, constructing a new north-south crosswalk on the west side of the intersections and adding a bike/pedestrian pull-off area at the southwest corner of the intersection. City Manager Judie Zimomra said the city has yet to meet with property owners to seek easements. The easements might dictate it, she added. Sanibels crosswalk policy hasnt been changed since 1997. hired to carry out a study of the areas, including vehicular, bicyclist and pedestrian counts, vehicle speed analysis and field observation. City Donates Truck To CHRby Anne MitchellProving the old adage that one mans trash is anothers treasure, instead of disposing of a Ford F150 truck thats seen better days, the City of Sanibel will donate it to Community Housing & Resources (CHR), the citys housing agency. When the disposal of obsolete or surplus assets came up before council for approval on Tuesday, Councilman Mick Denham noted that CHR is in need of a truck. He said the maintenance person is using his own vehicle and that the agency would appreciate the citys old one, which is a 2004 model with 38,000 miles on police boat to and from the boat ramp. The city puts its value at $1,548. City Manager Judie Zimomra said it needs some work and CHR is welcome to inspect it.

From page 1Exchange Students On SanibelAccording to Carole Anne, dur ing their mornings, students take classes which teach them about the American experience, and specifically about Florida history and culture. The students who hail from five different countries: China, Spain, Russia, France and Hong Kong are also enrolled in English language classes. During the afternoons, the 147 foreign exchange students explore all that Southwest Florida has to offer. Theyve gone to the roller rink, bowling, the water park in Naples, Fort Myers Beach, shopping at Miromar Outlets, Coconut Point and the Edison Mall, added Fallon. On Friday afternoon, five buses filled with Education First students and chaperones turned onto Main Street, next to Billys Bikes & Rentals, where rows upon rows of bicycles were reserved for the teenage VIPs. Most of the students headed east on Periwinkle Way towards Lighthouse Beach, but some crossed the island and explored Tarpon Bay Beach. I liked going to Miami and shopping and going to the beach, said Sara Alicante, who seemed very eager to make her way back to her favorite Sanibel beach. I like to go find shells, too. Zhang Xiao Yin, who said that her favorite food in America was pizza, noted that her favorite experience on the island was swimming in the ocean. And staying with my host family, she added with a smile. One evening during the trip, the group staged an Amazing Race-themed event at McGregor Baptist Church in Fort Myers, with the students preparing dishes from their own countries, performing skits or singing songs traditional to their own cultures. In addition, the girls got to travel to Walt Disney World and Universal Studios in Orlando and Busch Gardens in Tampa during their stay, which ended on August 6. I just loved seeing the delight on the girls faces, said Carole Anne. We would go shopping, and youd see that reaction on their faces when theyd try on a piece of clothing. Im also amazed that a child of 13 from China would come so far from home to stay with a total stranger. They really are interested in learning about our country and our culture and improving their English. The Fallons also said that they will probably be a host family again, should the opportunity become available. In fact, perhaps well take a student in as soon as January, depending upon whats going on with our family, said Carole Anne, who was busy taking pictures of both girls as they rode their bikes. Really, its a wonderful education for us, too.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 201314 From page 3High Lake O LevelsThis excess freshwater is running off the land so fast it carries tannins from plants and other organic material with it, causing the unusually dark water. Flood control projects that began in the 1940s were designed to drain water off the land to accommodate growth and development in south Florida. So the high rainfall this year has saturated the land with water, raised water levels in Lake Okeechobee and necessitated water releases to lower the lake. The excess water is coming from both the Caloosahatchee watershed in Lee, Hendry and Glades counties as well as from Lake O releases. The solutions are twofold: increase storage throughout the system and redirect water to more historic flow patterns. Drainage projects created 70 years ago for flood control no longer serve our state or community interests or economies. Short term and long term solutions are needed at both the federal and state levels to change the outcomes and prevent devastation of our marine life, beaches, local economies and quality of life. This is our legacy; this is our heritage to next generations. Changes are needed now. Take Action! Demand The SFWMD Deliver On Promises Demand that the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) implement planned storage projects and update their operations. Since 2005 when the SFWMD promised new storage projects to prevent the disaster of 200405, there is not one project constructed or operational in the Caloosahatchee watershed.

Please attend if you can and insist that the Caloosahatchee be included in the scope of the hearings, and press for the implementation of federal and state solutions to these issues. Urge The U.S. House To Pass WRDA SCCF will be attending U.S. Representative Trey Radels listening session on Wednesday, August 7 at Edison College to tell him that we need the U.S. House to pass a WRDA bill. A Water Resources Development Act bill is the only way to get water projects approved for construction and funding across the nation. It has been six years since the last WRDA and it is needed to authorize long term storage projects to help reduce high flow conditions. Two needed projects are the C43 reservoir for the Caloosahatchee and Central Everglades Planning Project (CEPP), to once again flow water south to the Everglades.

17 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 2013 CROW Case Of The Week: Florida Mottled Ducklingby Patricia MolloyAn abandoned or orphaned mottled duckling was admitted to CROW last month. The tiny patient spent the first weeks of his stay in a warm incubator, eating four to six nutrient-rich meals per day. As one of the few non-migratory ducks in North America, the mottled duck (Anas fulvigula) has resided in Florida for thousands of years. It prefers coastal marshes and wetlands with shallow, fresh water and abundant vegetation. Unlike birds such as the mockingbird and blue jay, which raise their hatchlings in a nest for weeks, a female mottled duck will escort her babies to the water within 48 hours of hatching. Young mottled ducks will take their first flight between the ages of 60 and 70 days. One of the greatest concerns for avians at the clinic is the development of bumblefoot, a bacterial infection that patients can contract after spending too much time on their feet. Make sure you check the bottom of his feet every day, Dr. Heather cautioned the clinics staff and students. While rarely seen in the wild, bumblefoot most commonly affects captive or domesticated birds. It is the bane of wildlife rehabilitation, added Dr. Heather. As one valuable tool in preventing development of the condition, certain patients are prescribed a daily dose of tub time. CROW has several bathtubs to accommodate the hectic feeding and physical therapy schedules of its avian and reptilian patients. While undergoing supportive care at the wildlife hospital, the male mottled duckling grew by leaps and bounds. (He) is doing fine. He has moved to a cage and is no longer in a incubator, stated Dr. Kristen. The duckling will soon be transferred outside to one of the speciesspecific enclosures at CROW. When he is old enough to survive on his own, patient #1887 will be returned to the wetlands of his birth. Once there, it is hoped that he will find a mate and go on to be the proud papa of his own brood of fuzzy ducklings. If you would like to feed beautiful songbirds, graze gopher tortoises or help transport injured animals to the wildlife clinic, call 472-3644, ext. 229 or go to CROWs website. Training is provided. CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Inc.) is a non-profit wildlife hospital providing veterinary care for native and migratory wildlife from our local area.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 201318 The Sound Bounces To Life This Weekby Capt. Matt MitchellWith good daytime tides, generally calm conditions and thunderstorms holding off until late afternoon, this was a great week to be out fishing on Pine Island Sound. With such slick calm mornings it was amazing to see all the life in the sound. It ranged from schools of small bait getting chased by ladyfish, jacks and trout, to watching tarpon roll around these bait schools. Despite the water being so brown from the fresh water run-off, the bay was more alive with fish this week than I have seen it in months. From Chino Island to Captiva Rocks and most places in between, huge schools of small bait fish were easy to locate. All around these bait schools the whole food chain was in action. This set up is a great way to fish your way up the food chain while keeping a rod bent. You can start out by either throwing a small 1/4 inch mesh cast net on the bait schools or rig up with small spoons and jigs. I like to make one throw of the cast net then put the small white baits under a float. The variety of fish feeding in and around these bait schools was awesome. One cast would be a big trout, then mackerel, jacks, bluefish, mangrove snapper and on and on. While fishing around Redlight Shoal we even had a snook and a few small reds while fishing the inchlong white baits. After saving a few live ladyfish, it is time to move up the food chain and catch something bigger. Either hook a live ladyfish up under a float or cut it in to two large pieces and simply pitch out the large chunks on a big circle hook. Although we only had a few tarpon hookups doing this, the amount of rolling tarpon seen throughout the bay was very impressive with what seems like close to as many tarpon around as there was in May and June. Bull sharks and blacktip sharks of all sizes made up the majority of the action when fishing with ladyfish. Bull sharks were more of a problem while grouper fishing in Captiva Pass this week. Multiple times after fighting a quality gag grouper up from the bottom, a large bull shark would grab it whole right next to the boat. I did manage a few keeper sized gags out of the pass this week while dropping large pinfish down to the bottom. During calm conditions it was possible to hold the boat right on top of the good structure where the grouper live. Big morning high tides also had the redfish feeding well all over the sound. Ladyfish chunks and live pinfish were the baits of choice, skipped way back under the trees. One of my favorite ways to fish for redfish this time of year is out in open water on shallow flats around mullet schools. I rig with a live medium pinfish or grunt thats roughly two feet under a float. Most of the reds I have been catching in the southern sound by this method have been in the upper end of the slot with quite a few over the 27-inch max. The strikes you get fishing a pinfish like this are awesome; often you can watch the redfish chase the bait around before completely sticking its head out the water to inhale the bait. These are some of the most aggressive redfish bites you will ever see. Snook fishing in and around the passes this week was on fire if you managed to be in the right pass on the right part of the tide. The first few hours of the outgoing seemed to be the best action. Big live pinfish drifted on the bottom through the passes caught lots of snook over the 30-inch mark along with a few real monsters that could just not be turned before breaking off on the structure. After near record rainfall this past few months, our water is so dark you really would not think fishing would be as good as it is. Seeing so much fish life and so much happening out on the water this week was much-needed relief from what have been pretty tough conditions for anglers this past few weeks. Capt.

19 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 2013Birds Eye ViewKiller Whales In Captivityby Mark Bird WestallThere is a new documentary film that has started opening in American theaters this summer that is sure to reopen the controversy about killer whales being kept in captivity for human entertainment. The documentary is entitled, Blackfish, directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite. This documentary was primarily initiated to document the sad story of the death of Dawn Brancheau when she was dragged underwater by the killer whale known as Tilikum and drowned in front of a shocked audience at Sea World in 2012. As Cowperthwaite researched the incident further, however, the focus eventually evolved into addressing the darker issue of whether these large, migratory, highly intellectual marine mammals should be forced into captivity in the first place. I understand that many humans have a powerful desire to connect with and observe the wild creatures that share this world with us. I mean, look at how many people flock (no pun intended) to Sanibels Wildlife Drive in the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge and spend hours and hours doing just that. I, personally, have said many times that one of the major reasons why I became a professional naturalist and worked so closely with ospreys, bald eagles, alligators and the islands American crocodile was so I had a justifiable excuse to get close to the wildlife. And one of the stereotyped rationalizations for the existence of things like zoos and circuses is that keeping those animals in captivity and presenting them to the publics view offers one of the few ways that the general public can actually have an experience with wild animals. But there is another side to the argument that suggests that with eco-tourism opportunities so available to the public these days, isnt it much more fascinating and memorable to have these wildlife experiences for real in the animals natural habitat instead of seeing them in some sort of caged environment, sometimes doing tricks for the audiences enjoyment? Im sure that a trip to British Columbia and chartering a killer whale-watching tour is not that much more expensive than coming to Sea World to see the same animals in an aquarium. By the way, seeing killer whales in the wild is still one of my To do before I die things I have left to accomplish. But if more people went into the wild to see these beautiful creatures in their natural habitat, then big companies like Anheuser-Busch would not be able to make so much money. I guarantee Anheuser-Busch does not own Sea World because it is a conservation organization. The beer company owns Sea World because there are big bucks in humans watching animals do tricks in captivity. Just for a second, put yourself in Tilikums shoes (fins). As I understand it, he was captured as a two-year-old in the waters around Iceland and stolen from his mother and family pod in 1983. And the way he was captured I found enlightening as to the intelligence of these animals. As the humans approached the pod in fastmoving boats, the males of the pod broke away from the females and young ones and tried to lure the boats into chasing them. The ploy worked at first, but the humans had a spotter-plane that was able to redirect the boats to their prey (the youngsters) before the females and young could escape the area. After being removed from his mother, Tilikum was placed in a relatively small aquarium with other, more dominant and unrelated females, where he was constantly picked on by the larger animals. Then he was taught to do tricks! Now, imagine someone doing that to a human being. And it shouldnt take much to imagine this because humans have been doing that to each other for thousands of years. Some humans, maybe most, would become good, obedient slaves. But there would always be a few who would remember who destroyed their lives and act out violently if they saw the opportunity. I have not seen the documentary so I am a little bit nervous about bringing it up because I know how polarizing the issue of killer whales in captivity can be. Also, I know how much the media likes to sensationalize how naturally dangerous wildlife is without really understanding what is going on when animals act a certain way. So I dont know if this documentary will be objective or not. But I would suggest you go see this documentary and make up your mind yourself. See if you think it is ok for highly intelligent non-human animals to be stolen from their families and trained to do tricks solely for human entertainment. Personally, I see that places like Sea World expand our knowledge of these fascinating creatures, but killer whales in captivity only have about half the life expectancy that they can have in the continued on page 20 I CANNOT TELL A LIE...IT'S SIMPLY THE BEST...

Last year, Southwest Floridas only wildlife hospital cared for 3,583 sick, injured and orphaned animals. Of the 200 different species, 61 percent were birds, with 33 percent mammals and six percent reptiles. Due to restrictions imposed by governmental agencies, CROW cannot allow visitors to view patients in person. But in this hour-long presentation, visitors will see numerous photos of current and past patients, with commentary by Claudia Burns, a veteran clinic volunteer. The next CROW Picture Show will be held on Friday, August 9 at 11 a.m. in the CROW Healing Winds Visitor Education Center at 3883 SanibelCaptiva Road, across from The Sanibel School. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for teenagers, and free for members and children 12 and under.

I also cannot justify the damage we cause to the family groups in the wild when their young are ripped away from their mothers. But my way of thinking is probably in the minority. In our innate (I believe) desire to commune with nature, we as a species, find it very difficult to see the pain and suffering (both physical and mental) we cause in satisfying that desire.

21 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 2013 Plant SmartRed Powder Puffby G erri ReavesRed powder puff (Calliandra haematocephala) is a non-native flowering tree notable for pretty flowers and feathery foliage. It is a relative of the royal poinciana and mimosa and a member of the pea family. The bright blooms attract hummingbirds, butterflies and honeybees. Multi-trunked with low branches, it grows 12 to 15 feet tall with a spread of equal measure. Its a fast grower that develops an open rounded crown if not pruned back. The bipinnate leaves have an even number of shiny oblong leaflets, which make for finetextured foliage. The flowers of two to three inches across range in color from deep red to watermelon pink. They bloom most profusely in the warmer months, with the fuzzy flowers bursting from buds that resemble a cluster of bright berries. Grow red powder puff in full sun to partial shade where it will receive plenty of moisture. Once established, it is very drought tolerant. It does not tolerate salt, however, so is not suitable for coastal landscapes. It can be used as a hedge, specimen or container plant. Propagate it with cuttings or with the seeds in the threeto six-inch brown fruit pods. Sources: Florida Landscape Plants by John V. Watkins and Thomas J.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 201322 An Audubon Florida Special PlaceBald Point State Parkby Eric DraperAfter a month of recovery from a broken leg, I finally escaped the house with a birthday outing to Bald Point State Park. Just an hour drive from Tallahassee, the 4,000-acre state park is a favorite destination with its calm beaches, coastal pine forests and marshes. The trip was a cautious venture timed to catch a sweet spot between the July afternoon heat and bugs at sunset. Our goal was to test my crutch skills on the sugar sand beach in search of some solitude to picnic and watch shorebirds as the tide went out. Parking was easy and the boardwalk led us right to the shore, where we set up chairs and enjoyed an eastern view of the Gulf. Not far from our spot a family of five splashed in the water. A boy excitedly urged his father to come look at the horseshoe crab he found in the shallows. The scene reminded me of bringing our kids to this very beach years earlier. How wonderful that this family has access to a state park. The beach soon delivered a bounty of watchable wildlife. Brown pelicans gathered in small groups and loafed offshore. A willet and a Wilsons plover worked their way along the beach, searching the wet sand for dinner. Not far from where we sat, an osprey hit the water hard, emerging while struggling to fly off with a good size fish. I would have been fine with just these birds, but I knew that even in summer, Bald Point had much more to offer. The breeze lulled me into a memory about a visit to this park last fall, when a friend and I bicycled from nearby Alligator Point. We wandered into the new west park entrance and followed the road through some spectacularly beautiful coastal pine flatwoods. The road provides canoe and kayak access to Lake Tucker, which drains into Chaires Creek. The creek meanders through marshes and sparse forests before emptying into Ochlockonee Bay. I later learned that a photo taken of the creek that day graced my friends holiday card. Although patience was my birthday mantra, the memory of that cool weather made me wish that my broken leg would heal quickly so I could plan to explore more of this beautiful piece of wilderness by foot, bicycle and kayak. My daydream was broken when a dozen American oystercatchers flew just above the shoreline in formation. A species in general decline, these handsome birds with heavy, bright orange bills are the objects of a new national effort by Audubon and other organizations to better protect shorebird habitats along the Atlantic Flyway. Bald Point is near the edge of oystercatchers Florida range. Next, a Sandwich tern flew south along the beach and not long after, a royal tern flew north out over the water. Further up the shore, a snowy egret was joined by a pair of sanderlings, which promptly raced each other till they were One of the Bald Point beaches bordered by pine flatland that volunteers help to maintain Lazy Flamingo, Inc. 6520-C Pine Avenue Sanibel, FL 33957 239-472-5353 Lazy Flamingo 3, Inc. 16501 Stringfellow Rd Bokeelia, FL 33922 239-283-5959 Lazy Flamingo 2, Inc. 1036 Periwinkle Way Sanibel, FL 33957 239-472-6939 Lazy Flamingo 4, Inc. 12951 McGregor Blvd. Ft.

The nearby family proved a bit scary for the birds and they took off in their distinctive flight. The day came to an end with the sinking sun and arrival of both gnats and acrobatic barn swallows. As reluctant as we were to leave the beautiful beach, we knew that hordes of hungry mosquitos would soon arrive. And, in spite of our nourishing, I hoped to grab a sandwich at one of the many fish houses lining the road back to Tallahassee. On the way back to the car, an earnest young ranger met us on the boardwalk. It was clear that he took great pride in being the steward of this special place along the Florida coast. I thanked him for his service. Leaving Bald Point and passing the intermittent beach houses that dot parcels sold for development before the park was created, we talked about the good fortune of having this land available for the public. The park was once part of the vast Northwest Florida holdings of the St. Joe Company. Funds from the states popular land acquisition program, Florida Forever, bought the land and helped pay for the modest entrances, parking lots, picnic pavilions and restrooms. This was at the heyday of Floridas park system expansion. Parks such as Bald Point are at risk of cutbacks in state funds for management of conservation lands. The fire dependent woods must be managed with prescribed burns, and the beaches themselves will only support birdlife if human disturbance and predators are managed. Even more risky are legislators who see the expense public parks as too much government. Our parks are most secure when we use them and when volunteers pitch in to help the park service to manage them well today and for future generations.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 201324 Edgy Play At Lab Theaterby Di SaggauTheres a hurricane brewing outside the house and inside during Laboratory Theaters production of The House of Yes. Talk about intriguing theater, this black comedy is about the Pascals, an amoral upper-class family in Virginia, who are fixated on their neighbors, the Kennedy clan. Its Thanksgiving l988 and everyone is awaiting the arrival of Marty (Todd Fleck), especially his twin sister Jackie-O (Kathleen Taylor.) She is taken aback big time when Marty arrives with his fianc Lesly (Tera Nicole Miller), a sweet tempered waitress who smells like powdered sugar. It soon becomes obvious Marty and Jackie share more than sibling love. In fact, its downright incestuous. There is another brother, Anthony, (Adam Kazmarz) the product of a different father. Hes enamored with the naive Lesly and manages to seduce her in the upstairs bedroom while Marty and Jackie-O do their snuggling downstairs. Jackie is a nutcase when not on her meds and her idea of what to wear to a costume party is absolutely unacceptable. I have no doubt you will agree with me on that one. Observing all the goings on is the family matriarch Mrs. Pascal (Nancy Antonio) who is also harboring a deep secret. This is one twisted family but in spite of it all the clever dialogue delivers quite a few laughs. I could not for the life of me figure out the plays title so I did some digging online and found out that the playwright Wendy MacLeod got the title from a grafitto she found in a New Haven bathroom. She felt it was the perfect title for a house of immorality where no one has ever said no to them. The Pascals are insulated by wealth and tare otally arrogant. Director Nykkie Rizley has put together a strong cast for this challenging production. It runs 85 minutes with no intermission and after the last scene you are left knowing for sure that money does not always buy happiness. Its a play well worth seeing and it will have you talking about it for some time. It you like cutting-edge theater, this ones for you. The House of Yes plays through August 24 at Laboratory Theater of Florida, 1634 Woodford Avenue in the Fort Myers River District. For tickets call 218-0481.

And could the engagement of Senator McCarthys daughter to a suspected Soviet spy have anything to do with all of this? And the bombwhat about the bomb? Hollingers Red Herring is a fun and farcical look at Red Scare America. It is a love story, a murder mystery, and an espionage plot all rolled into a comedy about marriage and other explosive devices.

25 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 2013 Shell Museum Collection: What Is Type?by Jos H. Leal, Ph. D. Curator/ Director of EducationDid you know that The BaileyMatthews Shell Museum houses an important collection of type specimens of mollusks? The type collection at the museum is, by virtue of its scientific value, one of the most important sections of the institutions holdings. It is stored in a special cabinet with casters, which would allow for quick removal in case of a natural disaster. When a new, previously unknown species of animal or plant is formally named, that description is based on particular specimens studied by the researcher. Those specimens are called types, and they are usually placed in natural history museums, or in a research center, or university that houses a scientific collection. Reference to types in the description article includes the name of the museum (or museums) and respective collection numbers: it is common that the author of a new species should opt to deposit types of the newly described species in more than one museum. The Shell Museum types are, following the system used for its general scientific collection, catalogued by number. For instance, in 2008, museum curator Dr. Jos H. Leal described and named a couple of new and bizarre-looking species in the new genus Dilemma. (A genus is a group of related species.) The main type, or holotype, for one of these new species is deposited in the Shell Museum, under collection number BMSM 15029. That species was named Dilemma frumarkernorum, after the two individuals who collected the original specimens in deep water off the Florida Keys Frank Frumar and Steve Kern (the author of a new species chooses the name of that species based on some rules of zoological nomenclature.) The fact that different researchers from all over the world choose the Shell Museum as the final depository for their types is invaluable, said Jos Leal. The very presence of a type collection in our museum enhances its scientific credibility and reputation in the field of natural history museums.

The gala will take place on January 18, 2014. The city and its team at Harborside provided us a spectacular venue for our 10th anniversary ball last season, said Todd Gates, president of Gates Construction, who is chairing the 2014 event with his wife, Angela. Were looking forward to working with them again to provide some new and exciting features to the event and transform the space into the imaginative environment that our supporters love. The Cattle Barons Ball is famous for its over-the-top western dcor and generous denim-clad sponsors. Next years event promises to be bigger than ever, featuring a night of unique cowboy-themed games, silent and live auctions, exquisite desserts and some special surprises. Ruths Chris Steakhouse will be back to provide a gourmet meal, and One Night Rodeo will once again entertain with their award-winning, bootstomping country music.

The book signing will last about one hour, or until White has finished signing. Books must be purchased from the Sanibel Bookshop to receive a ticket for the signing line. In this gripping new novel, a 20-yearold unsolved murder from Floridas pothauling days gets Hannah Smiths attention, but so does a more immediate problem. A private museum devoted solely to the states earliest settlers and pioneers has been announced, and many of Hannahs friends and neighbors in Sulfur Wells are being pressured to make contributions. The problem is, the whole thing is a scam, and when Hannah sets out to uncover whoevers behind it, she discovers that things are even worse than she thought. The museum scam is a front for a real estate power play, her entire village is in danger of being wiped out and the forces behind it have no intention of letting anything, or anyone, stand in their way. If you cant attend the event but would like to purchase an autographed book, please call 472-5223 to pre-pay and well have one or more copies signed and reserved for you.

rfn BUSINESS REAL ESTATE CLASSIFIEDS VOL. 21, NO. 7 SANIBEL & CAPTIVA ISLANDS, FLORIDA AUGUST 9, 2013 BSECTIONSubmarine Veterans Memorial: Part I of IIF rom D ream T o Realityby Jeff L ysiakWhen local members of the United States Submarine Veterans decided to restore the damaged memorial marker located adjacent to the Southwest Florida Vietnam Veterans Memorial at the intersection of Colonial and McGregor boulevards in Fort Myers they called upon one of the worlds most respected and talented artisans to perform some of the work on the new and improved monument. Sanibel sculptor Lucas Century, whose work on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington, DC gained him inter national acclaim, will etch the name of the 65 submarines lost in the line of duty, along with the United States Submarine Veterans logo and creed, on three black granite slabs. The brass plate on the original memorial had been destroyed by acid rain and tree sap, said Ken Jordan, a member of the local United States Submarine Veterans chapter, who collected $4,090 to erect a new monument. Donations came from friends, relatives, neighbors, local businesses, members of the American Legion and Elks Club of Cape Coral Post #2596. Members of the United States Submarine Veterans comprised of some 162 chapters across the country are active, retired, reserve or honorably discharged veterans of the elite fighting force of the United States Navy. Their mission includes sharing the history of submarines as protectors of the waters surrounding America over the past 113 years and the brave 35,002 men who have served aboard those vessels. According to John Troia, a member of the Cape Coral chapter of the United States Submarine Veterans, Solid Top Granite of Fort Myers gave the group a substantial discount on their products and services, which will include the cost of the final cuts and bevel work. However, more important to them is the increased visibility the new monument will receive. A lot of people didnt even know the (original) Submarine Veterans memorial was there, said Troia. With Luc Century adding the large logo on one side of the monument, people are going to be able to see it driving by or when theyre passing by on their bicycles. Its definitely going to increase our visibility.continued on page 7B Ken Jordan and John Troia hold the template for the United States Submarine Veterans logo, which will be etched into the memorial in Fort Myers Ken Jordan and John Troia with the United States Submarine Veterans creed, which will be etched in black granite by Sanibel sculptor Luc Century Patch memorializing the USS Scorpion (SSN589), sunk on May 22, 1968 with 99 sailors lost.

Rotary Happenings submitted by S hirley JewellHappy 60th Birthday! Rotarian, Reverend Dr. John Danner. We should all celebrate our BIG birthdays like John. Instead of moaning and groaning about this coming-ofage birthday, he decided to present himself a personal challenge: The 60 for 60 Challenge. His way of celebrating the BIG 60 was by raising awareness and funds for the Wheelchair Foundation (Sanibel-Captiva Rotary has been involved with the Wheelchair Foundation for a number of years). Here is how he did it. He announced that he was doing a sponsored ride from Fort Lauderdale to Key West, a 180-mile trip, 60 miles a day for three days, from July 31 to August 2 to raise funds to pur chase 60 wheelchairs ($100 per chair). He announced this challenge to Rotary, church family, friends, and family and they responded by contributing $14,600 with a $3,500 Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club match to sponsor this birthday ride. This gift will more than double the original intent of the 60 for 60 wheelchair purchasing power. John, all of your fellow SanibelCaptiva Rotarians are extremely proud of your effort in supporting the Wheelchair Foundation and thank everyone who contributed. Club President Scot Congress installed and welcomed our first new member of this Rotary year, Jack Alexander, CPA auditor with Stroemer & Co., Fort Myers/Sanibel. Jack was sponsored by Rotarian John Pryor, a FISH board member, who has worked with Jack at FISH. Each new member comes to Rotary for their own reasons and membership chair, Janet Strickland, and her committee meet with new applicants and explain and provide information to them regarding the basics of Rotary and discuss how we can fulfill their desire to work in certain areas to support our motto of Service Above Self. The club has a broad spectrum of projects that we support and we welcome ideas and energy in working on our current projects or bringing ideas forth regarding new ones that fit the object of Rotary. If anyone would like more information regarding membership, please contact Janet Strickland at jmslaw@centurylink. net. Still on the topic of membership, Rotarian Jim Reed brought to the members attention the front cover and article from August 2013 Rotary Magazine The Rotarian of what might be a familiar face to some of islanders. The picture and article was of regular visitor to Sanibel, former Senator Dick Lugar, titled The Gentleman from Indiana. Jim campaigned for Senator Lugar back in the early days of his political career in Indiana and wanted us to know what an outstanding person he is and how his political star was shining for the very start. Lugar, the six-term senator and former head of the Foreign Relations Committee, is a 55-year Rotarian. I will now segue from a leader in American politics to a leadership program sponsored by Rotary called S4TL (Seminar for Tomorrows Leaders). S4TL is a powerful leadership-training program for high school students. It is organized annually by a board of directors of Rotary senior staff from districts 6890, 6950 and 6960 in mid-Florida. Our club sponsored Katlin Upton from Cape Coral High. She recently dropped by to tell us what an outstanding experience S4TL provides. Seminar for Tomorrows Leaders takes place on the campus of Florida Southern College in Lakeland. Students who participate in the weeklong experience hear from national motivational speakers, Rotarians and each other about the importance of making good decisions and giving back to their community. In addition, of course, they learn the values of Rotary. Lectures, discussions, rap sessions, motivational talks, and interchanges of ideas/concepts are all a part of challenging participants to develop leader ship abilities. The ultimate goal is for each student to leave with a new selfawareness. ready to not only better use their natural abilities but also to serve others in leadership throughout life. Katlin told us, that from her arrival at S4TL, she realized from the energy and positivity of her red-shirted greeters she was in for a totally different experience. This statement alone gave her an aha! moment, Dont let anyone tell you, you cant accomplish your dreams they are your dreams and if you work toward them you can make your dreams come true, she said. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets at 7 a.m. every Friday at The Dunes Golf and Tennis Club, 949 Sand Castle Road.

The construction of the tower was among the first acts of the Lighthouse Establishment, a federal agency created in 1789. The original rubblestone lighthouse still stands and looks much as it did in the late 1800s. navigational aid in New Hampshire was established in Portsmouth Harbor, the citizens had demanded a lighthouse as early as 1721, it was not until 50 years beacon was lit.

9B ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 2013 Major League Baseball Drug Users Cheat The Clean, Honest Players by Ed FrankAmidst all the news that has been written and broadcast this past week over the suspension of 13 Major League Baseball players for their implication in the use of performance enhancing drugs, seldom if ever is mentioned the unfairness these cheaters have inflicted on those who play the game straight. You read that these penalties are costing these drug users millions in lost salaries; that these suspensions could cripple teams fighting for post-season play; that some contend they are being punished unfairly. Isnt that too bad!?! We shouldnt shed a single tear for these cheaters who have tarnished the oncesacred game of baseball. Who we should feel sorry for are the vast majority of baseball players who have remained honest to the game and have had to compete on an unleveled playing field that being competing against players who have cheated the system. Perhaps you will recall a lengthy story several years ago in Sports Illustrated about four youngsters who played here for the Fort Myers Miracle baseball team. Three fought and scrapped their way through the minor leagues only never to make it to the Majors. The fourth was a drug user who did make it to the big show, even playing for a World Series champion. This incident typifies what this present scandal the worst in baseball history is all about. The 13 players named this week and those tagged as users of PEDs in the past and dozens more who have been suspected but never officially charged have stolen baseball records and obtained multi-million dollar contracts they were not entitled to. Too often it seems the players union has came to the defense of these rules violators rather than defending the majority of their members who have played the game clean. Through the years, baseball has been known as our national pastime. These cheaters, these drug users have unfairly changed the image of baseball for years to come. The games hope for redemption lies with the majority of honest players. These are who we should cheer for. Miracle Home Thursday And Friday Against Charlotte The Fort Myers Miracle began the week with a second-half season record of 22-19, just two games behind first-place Charlotte in the Florida State League South Division. The Miracle hosts Charlotte this Thursday and Friday nights at Hammond Stadium at 7:05 p.m. The Minnesota Twins No. 2 prospect, center fielder Bryon Buxton, has returned to action for the Miracle after missing six games due to a toe injury.

11B ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 2013Shell Point Retirement Community has broken ground on the first custom home design that will be offered in the communitys new neighborhood, The Estuary. The home, featuring the Useppa floor plan design, will be located near the entrance to The Island at Shell Point and, when complete, will be easily accessible to Welcome Center visitors who will be able to tour the home by appointment on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Planned completion for the Useppa is currently scheduled for October. The Estuary at Shell Point will be the planned communitys fourth neighbor hood and will include 50 residences in a combination of single-family signature homes and twin villa homes, along with a community center and pool. Entrance fees for the homes will start at approximately $687,000 and will include all of the amenities and services available at Shell Point including complete lifecare and a 75 percent or 90 percent refundable contract. Lifecare provides a form of long term care insurance that includes access to assisted living and skilled nursing if needed. Bob Southern, assistant to the president for project development at Shell Point, explained that he and his team selected Aubuchon Homes to build the first home because of the companys solid reputation in Southwest Florida. Aubuchon is known for quality construction and professionalism, he said. Shell Point President Peter Dys said plans to develop The Estuary evolved as a response to an improved economy. The Estuary at Shell Point will give us an opportunity to provide new facilities and services to both our existing and future residents, said Dys. We are responding to what fits naturally and what makes sense to Shell Point long-term. Carl Schmidt, Aubuchons vice president of construction, said they were pleased to be selected to build this home at Shell Point. Its also heartening to see an uptick in the local market and a demand for new construction, he added. The Aubuchon Team of Companies includes Aubuchon Homes, Miloff Aubuchon Realty Group, The Sterling Collection, and Evalutions by Aubuchon. This team of companies has been doing business in Southwest Florida since 1992. Site work preparation, roads, and cutting out a lake, as well as construction of the new community building and pool, is scheduled to commence after the first 16 homes or villas are pre-sold. The first residents could move in as early as mid to late 2014. Shell Point is also planning a 35,000 square foot clubhouse to expand the social and lifestyle opportunities for residents of the entire community. In addition to serving the 18-hole championship golf course, the clubhouse will include a pro shop, dining rooms, a health club, a salon and meeting rooms. The Estuary Signature Homes will offer 2,300-2,700 square feet of airconditioned living space including a great room, dining room, kitchen with morning room, master suite and two additional bedrooms with shared bath. With entry, lanai, and two-car garage, plus an additional space for a golf cart, the footprint will total 3,500 to 3,900 square feet. The Estuary Twin Villa homes are 1,600 to 2,000 square feet of airconditioned living space. Each attached home offers a great room, dining room, kitchen, master suite, second bedroom, and laundry room. Each villa will offer an expansive lanai and two-car garage with additional golf cart parking. Reservations on specific home sites offering views of the golf course or lake will be taken in the near future.

State-of-the-art dental equipment was recently installed that included sixteen new dental chairs (16-Pelton & Crane, Spirit 3003) and renovation of the dental materials lab. These upgrades will provide dental hygiene students with the most modern technology for the procedures that occur daily in the clinic and will also offer added comfort for the patients. The Dental Hygiene Clinic opened in December 2000 and serves 3,000 patients annually. The clinic is equipped with 16 dental suites, including dental radiographic units and an instrument sterilization center. The clinic incorporated electronic (paper less) patient records in 2004. Faculty, staff and students in the program also service the local community through participation in several projects such as: National Give Kids A Smile Day, Project Dentist Care, Elementary school presentations, Buckingham Exceptional Educational Program, Gulf Coast Dental Hygiene Table Clinics, JDRF Walk, Dental Health Month activities, Assisted Care Facilities Presentations, and Edisons Light House Commons Nutritional Project. The Edison State College Dental Hygiene program is fully accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation. For 18 consecutive years, graduates have earned a 100 perccent pass rate on the National Board Dental Hygiene Examination. The program boasts a 90 percent completion rate among students accepted into the program, with 258 graduates since 1995. Each class is diverse with students of various age and ethnic backgrounds. English is a second language for 30 percent of the students enrolled in the program. The Dental Hygiene program also partners with the Continuing Education Department to offer an injectable dental anesthesia course for Floridas Registered Dental Hygienists. This is a result of recent legislative change that expanded the scope of skills performed dental hygienists. The Dental Hygiene Clinic is not only a great resource for providing clinical education for our students, but also a tremendous asset for our community members who may not have access to dental care, said Karen Molumby, program director of Dental Hygiene. National attention has determined the oral health connection to other systemic conditions such as cardiovascular disease, low infant birth weight, and nutritional deficiencies. Dental hygiene focuses on the prevention and treatment of periodontal disease, through treatment and patient education. Results of national studies show that 80 percent of dental disease occurs in 20 percent of our population who are dentally underserved. Patients receive outstanding preventive dental care at an affordable price while students obtain valuable hands-on experience, supervised by our talented and experienced faculty who are licensed Dental Hygienists and Dentists, added Dr. Marie Collins, Dean, School of Health Professions.

12B ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 2013 History Of A ir Conditioningby Bryan HayesAir conditioning, or the treatment of air for comfort and productivity, dates back thousands of years. The Ancient Romans utilized waters properties of absorption and dissipation of heat long before electricity. They would channel water through walls of homes; the water would absorb heat as it passed. The result was a lower temperature in the home. It gives a whole new meaning to the term my a/c is leaking, what a mess. In 1902, Willis Havilland Carrier, only one year after graduating from Harvard with a masters degree in Engineering, developed the first generation of air conditioning as we know it today. The original unit was developed for a Brooklyn printing press. Carrier was an employee when the owner presented the problem to Carrier. The problem that needed solving was that during the hot and humid New York summers, they would have troubles with the press due to paper swelling and excessive ink dry times. Carrier brought in his new invention and once a/c was added, it dried out and cooled the building. Problem solved and a whole new way of life was born. Carrier was making a whopping $10 a week at the time. Try to imagine life with out the advancement of air conditioning and refrigeration. Please note that they are one in the same. Think what it would be like day to day without being able to store food for extended periods of time. A great deal more time would be spent on obtaining food. Imagine trying to sleep with the bugs, heat and humidity. Life definately would be much different. 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.

Last week, I wrote about a variety of ways to modify problem trusts. I mentioned one technique, trust decanting, as a viable option. Today, I thought that Id expand on what trust decanting is and how it works, as this is a little understood option that often isnt considered when it could be a solution that the family is looking for. For those of us who have oenophile tendencies, you may know that decanting is the action of pouring wine from its bottle into a wide-based container. The idea is to separate the wine from its sediment and expose a large surface of the wine to oxygen, allowing it to express its desirable aromas. Decanting also helps to soften some aromas which are overpowering or unpleasant. The same holds true when decanting a trust, which is the process of modifying an otherwise irrevocable trust to better reflect the makers intent to accommodate problems like scriveners errors, changing the situs or governing law, modifying administrative provisions, consolidate assets, take advantage of planning strategies or dealing with changed circumstances after the trust became irrevocable. When decanting, a new trust is drawn up and the contents (assets) of the old trust are then poured into the new trust. Florida law, ahead of many other states, offers a specific statute that allows decanting so long as proper notice is provided to all qualified beneficiaries, which is a legal term also defined by statute, provided that the new trust does not impair the rights of any beneficiary or adversely affect the achievement of the purposes of the original trust. Suppose, for example, that the beneficiaries of a trust want to change the way and method that trustees are removed, appointed or compensated. Here, a decanting from one trust to another with the new trustee provisions might achieve those goals. Or sometimes there might be two different trusts for each beneficiary, one created by their father and one created by their mother. Here, decanting from both trusts into a single trust could solve investment issues or even reduce the administrative expenses associated with carrying two different trusts that have substantially the same provisions for a beneficiary. On the other hand, decanting may help solve issues involving pooled trusts, which are trusts that are created for several beneficiaries. If the beneficiaries are fighting over who is entitled to the assets, or if one beneficiary needs income and the other growth, or if distributions to any one beneficiary become an issue, decanting could allow for the pooled trusts to become separate shares for each beneficiary. Another example is where there are two different trusts, one that is very liquid and one illiquid. It might make sense to combine the trusts as the liquidity could assist with the carrying costs of the illiquid assets. Perhaps a trust is overly restrictive as to its investment strategies that have now become outdated. Here, a new trust that is more liberal in its investment options may be created, and the old trust could be decanted into it. You may have a trust that was originally established in a state that imposes a state income tax and wish to move the trust situs to Florida that has no state income tax. Here, decanting can help achieve that goal. Since the tax law continually evolves, an irrevocable trust that was once tax advantageous could become disadvantageous. Here, decanting into a new trust could solve the problem. Beneficiaries who encounter unexpected problems, such as creditor issues, divorce, having their own independent wealth or even those with self-destructive behavior could benefit from decanting. Here, the objective could be to make the trust terms more restrictive so that creditors and predators cant take the assets away from a beneficiary. When creating revocable trusts that continue on for your beneficiaries, it may be a good idea to proactively provide for decanting powers so that an independent trustee (one who is also not a beneficiary to eliminate bias or tax law problems associated with having certain powers over assets) can adjust the trust to future changes in circumstances. The options should be carefully considered, since an improperly drafted decanting power could backfire and cause more harm than it does good. When including these decanting powers, moreover, you should discuss with your attorney your comfort level of allowing for such potential future modifications to your estate plan. Continuing trusts offer substantial benefits for your beneficiaries, in the form of tax savings, creditor and divorce protection. With that said, I often counsel my clients that its favorable to allow for flexibility in continuing trusts, since no one knows what the future brings. By specifically allowing for a decanting power, you can better ensure that your beneficiaries wont be caught by unexpected circumstances. Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at www.sbshlaw.com.

Hersch|Attorney, CPAFlorida Bar Board Certied, Wills, Trusts & Estates Island Sun Will Power Columnist School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My daughter is in fifth grade and her teacher has said that she has executive functioning problems that have caused her to have lower grades and do poorly in school. I am not really sure what this means. What kind of problem is this and what can I do to help my daughter? Jonas V., Fort Myers Jonas, Executive functions are basic self-regulating skills such as planning, organizing, making decisions, shifting between situations or thoughts, and controlling impulsivity. We all use these skills every day to accomplish just about everything we need to do. Kids rely on their executive functions for everything from brushing their teeth, to riding a bike and organizing a school report. Children who have poor executive functioning, including many children with ADHD and/or learning disabilities, are much more disorganized than other kids. Typically, any person with poor executive functioning take longer to do simple chores and often become overwhelmed while doing simple tasks. Schoolwork can often become a nightmare for these children because they forget assignments, books, regularly lose papers, dont know how to plan or start long term assignments until the night before they are due. Teaching organizational skills to children who have this difficulty are one of the best ways to help them according to learning specialists. Writer Rachel Ehmke, from the Child Mind Institute, provides some strategies used to teach kids and their parents to help them tackle school work as well as other responsibilities that take organization and follow-through. Checklists The steps necessary for completing a task often arent obvious to kids with executive dysfunction, and defining them clearly ahead of time makes a task less daunting and more achievable. Following a checklist of steps also minimizes the mental and emotional strain many kids with executive dysfunction experience while trying to make decisions. With a checklist, kids can focus their mental energy on the task at hand, said Ruth Lee, Med, educational therapist. Set Time Limits When making a checklist, many educational therapists also recommend assigning a time limit for each step, particularly if it is a bigger, longer-term project. Matt Cruger, PhD, director of the Child Mind Institute Learning and Development Center, likes to practice breaking down different kinds of homework assignments with kids to get them used to the steps required and how long they might take. Use A Planner Educational specialists also emphasize the critical importance of teaching children how to use a planner. Most schools require students to use a planner these days, but they often dont teach children how to use them, and it wont be obvious to a child who is overwhelmed by or uninterested in organization and planning. Establish A Routine This is particularly important for older kids, who typically struggle more to get started with their homework. Educational specialists recommend starting homework at the same time every day. Ideally, kids should come home, unpack their bag, have a snack, and then get started. Use Rewards For younger kids, putting a reward system in place to highlight the value of these new strategies. This may help kids see the connection between practicing their skills and working towards a reward. School is really hard for these kids and they will need to be encouraged to use these new strategies. These are a just a few strategies that may be helpful for your daughter. You may want to contact a school or clinical psychologist for a formal diagnosis and additional personalized strategies that will assist you and your child.

21B ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 2013 deaRPharmacistFish Oil S upplements A nd Prostate Cancer by S uzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: What do you think about fish oil being linked to prostate cancer? I used to take it everyday but stopped after hearing about it in the news. Do you still recommend it? LD, Miami, Florida My opinion is that headlines which suggest fish oils raise risk for prostate cancer are nonsense. Some people cannot even think their way around this and have given up fish oils despite scientifically-sound literature that, if printed, could fill a football stadium. I hope youre sitting down. There is no evidence that anybody in this study took fish oil dietary supplements! Nowhere in the new study does it say fish oil, it says omega 3. In 2010, researchers evaluated ethyl esters of omega 3 fatty acids. Thats actually a drug. Repeat: When you talk about ethyl esters of omega 3s, you are talking about a patented prescription version of fish oils. It would never surprise me if scientists tied a pharmaceutical drug to higher cancer risk, but the headlines I keep reading say fish oil. High-quality fish oils causing prostate cancer? Au contraire! You cannot take something natural, morph it in a laboratory, patent it and expect health benefits. You cant mess with fish oils, or anything. Thats why natural progesterone protects a womans breasts, while the synthetic drug version (medroxyprogesterone) has dozens of potential side effects. Theres vitamin D3, a natural form as opposed to D2, a drug sold as a drug. Your body has to convert the D2 drug back to natural D3, why not just buy that to begin with? Benzodiazepines, like alprazolam or lorazepam, are highly addictive and have more risks compared to natural plant extracts that bind to GABA receptors and relax you naturally. Oh my goodness, margarine! A shmear of potent food additives, colorants and fat globules versus natural butter. Trust me, do not mess with mother nature! Why were plasma levels measured when they are meaningless? Red blood cell levels were never even obtained. Common sense now, the American Heart Association, the World Health Organization, the United States Institute of Medicines Food Nutrition Board and the 2010 Dietary Guidelines For Americans advise us to eat more fatty fish so as to obtain omega-3 fish oil benefits. Theres something fishy going on... do you think those organizations are in cahoots to induce prostate cancer in the male population? Fish oils primary components are EPA or DHA. Tight studies show DHA is protective for the prostate. In 2001, a study of 6,000 Swedish men found that high fish consumption significantly lowered prostate cancer rates. In New Zealand, men with the highest DHA markers slashed prostate cancer risk by almost 40 percent. A Japanese study found omega 3 blood levels correlated to a reduction in prostate cancer. So, my conclusion is omega 3s derived from fatty fish and fish oil supplements are safe and healthy, especially when taken with GLA. Supplement properly, directions on how to do so are posted at my website. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

Mom A nd Me by L izzie and PryceLizzie and Pryce answer your questions and give advice about aging concerns from a two-generational perspective. A mother and daughter team, Lizzie is a retired RN and health educator, and Pryce is a licensed psychotherapist in private practice who specializes in the care of elders and people with chronic illnesses. Dear Mom & Me, We always thought our daughter had a most unusual personality, and was difficult to be around. When she married, we enjoyed her husband and because of him we maintained a relationship. The years have passed, and being a widower and dependant on my daughter and her husband is troubling to me. He takes me grocery shopping and to my medical appointments, and without his help I could not stay in my own home. My daughter is still very difficult and now I must do as she says regardless of how I feel, and I always have to keep my mouth shut. It is dreadful to be in this position, but if I say anything, I know she will sell my house and put me in some cheap nursing home. I would really prefer to be relieved from the pain of living. How can I get out of this predicament? Lester Dear Lester, Having to depend on someone you do not feel comfortable with or you feel does not have your best interests in mind can be very difficult. Unless your daughter is your legal guardian (different from power of attorney), she can not sell your house from under you nor can she dump you into a cheap nursing home. If she was your guardian, she would have to justify to the court that her actions were in your best interest. If you feel you are at risk in your daughters care, call an attorney and explore what other options are available for your care and protection. Let a friend take you, take a taxi or some attorneys will come to the home if you are unable to go to the office. You do not have to live in fear of your daughter. There are options for you. Pryce Dear Lester, Pryce has outlined a very good plan for you. While you are well, get this resolved so you will no longer need to worry or be concerned about your future care.

ISLAND PHARMACY(Voted Best Pharmacy on The Island 6 years)CARING FOR YOU AND ABOUT YOU2330 Palm Ridge Rd. #12, Sanibel L ocal Wellness Coalition T o Host D owntown EventThe Healthy Lee movement is taking its message of healthier lifestyle choices to the streets this fall, thanks to the first ever Streets Alive event. Streets Alive will be the first signature event for Healthy Lee, the local wellness coalition created to empower and inspire the people of Lee County regarding healthy lifestyle choices through education and action. Streets Alive is focused on creating active fun for residents and visitors of all ages and abilities on streets, temporarily closed to motor vehicles, and highlighting healthier food and beverage offerings. Streets Alive was developed as our signature event because it shows attendees in a fun, family atmosphere the multitude of opportunities people in Lee County have to adopt a healthier lifestyle, said Sally Jackson, co-chairwoman of the Healthy Lee Coalition. The event is slated as an opportunity to showcase our Healthy Lee tagline: Choose. Commit. Change three simple, action-oriented steps that resonate with audiences of all ages and backgrounds. If you choose to participate, commit to healthy lifestyle choices such as good nutrition and regular exercise, you can ultimately change the way you look, feel and live, for the better. Streets Alive temporarily closes downtown streets to traffic and opens them up for people to play, including free activities such as walking, biking, aerobics, kickball, yoga and dance. The first event is set for Sunday, November 10 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the downtown Fort Myers River District. Streets Alive features instructors offering a buffet of free and accessible games, sports, dance and other movement for attendees to try. There will be several activity villages where a variety of activities and instructions will be offered, along with a series of events taking advantage of the traffic-free downtown streets. Participants of all ages and abilities are encouraged to participate, with the focus particularly being on easy-tolearn activities to get people moving. The family-friendly Streets Alive will have local restaurants and outlets along the route offering food and beverages, highlighting their most delicious and nutritious menu items. A range of other vendors will also be participating in the festivities. For more information or sponsorship options, go to www.streetsalivelee.org.

22B ISLAND SUN AUGUST 9, 2013 G ot A Problem? D r. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: I feel as though I am not aging well, from my body falling apart to being depressed. Is there anything I can do to overcome this negativity about aging?A: In our culture, there is no clear rite of passage through middle age into old age. Being older can be a time to come alive in ways we have never done before. So many think that when their body deteriorates, they are falling apart and its all over. Not so. There is a whole new creative part of the self that can emerge if the mind allows and accepts what is. Some think it is when you develop gray hair or wrinkles, or need to use a cane. True, in our older years we are faced with physical, psychological, economic and spiritual changes. Normal physical aging includes: tis, insomnia, poor circulation, high cholesterol, joint discomfort, muscle atrophy, vision and hearing loss and more, discoveries can help minimize these changes, allowing us to remain active and physically healthy into our senior years. lenge us emotionally. Forgetfulness and frailty can lead to loss of self-confidence social support system changes, you try to hold onto things as they are, to maintain some security. Its hard to accept that things in our lives change. If you can realize that its your own identification with these thoughts and feelings that are the cause of your suffering, you can be more accepting of lifes changes. Especially now with uncertain economic times, many boomers are downsizing. They realize they dont need all the stuff they once thought they did. Two-household couples are downsizing to much more now than a decade ago. They also are living on less money, having lost penor realized very little from investments. Be mindful that its not so much the changes but our attitude toward them that can make or break this special time in our lives. There are many activities for seniors also known as Road Scholar, is a notfor-profit organization that offers senior citizens educational and travel oppor tunities. For those seniors who are not interested in or are unable to travel, retirement communities have much to offer that range from active physical participation to lectures and discussion groups. Perhaps we can think of aging as a journey of gaining knowledge leading to wisdom. If our physical body remains healthy, that is a beautiful gift. If our physical health diminishes, we accept that, and can still continue our quest of knowledge. tion of the spiritual aspect of ourselves. Elders make up a large portion of religious congregations. Other cultures revere their elders because of their wisdom; we can, too. From page 19BOnlineto the final candidates.

Other illegal crimes featur ing weapons and drugs are involved and men and boys are also victims of modern slavery, but trafficking is the only global crime where women and girls are significantly represented. The Womens Fund of Southwest Florida is working with the regions nate the work of law, order and victim support associated with modern slavery. But, because this crime does not respect local, state, national or international boundaries, it is important to establish a regional resource center to better posiForce to coordinate investigation and prosecution of the criminals and support of the victims. Plus, essential data tracking of all cases in the region will be analyzed and interpreted to empower the professionals to reduce the incidents of one of the greatest human rights challenges of the century. The victims of this crime suffer unimaginable consequences. Women and girls have unwanted pregnancies, contract physical and psychological violence, and sometimes die. The resources to treat victims are scarce, with treatment and support needed on a long term basis. Restored physical and mental health is rare and the rate of victims returning to their captors is high. This makes human trafficking a significant public health issue. against their will every day. Recent news reports state that almost half the pimps arrested in the nation-wide Operation Some of the pimps were found hiding out General Pam Bondi and leaders in the Florida legislature have passed tougher laws to make penalties much harsher and provide safe harbor for victims. Pimps (men and women) must be prosecuted For more information on how to help establish the Southwest Florida Regional contact The Womens Fund of Southwest Florida at contact@womensfundflorida. org or visit the website at www.womensfundflorida.org/programs.

In acupuncture, these points are called acupuncture points, which may be stimulated by insertknown as acupressure points, which are accessed by touching, tapping or pressure to release or redistribute energy. If the energy of the meridian is obstructed, unregulated or compromised, the organ that it feeds is functioning less than optimally, resulting in dis-ease. If you think of the meridians as a a blockage due to an accident, than all of the traffic must be detoured. If the blockage of traffic becomes larger and larger, preventing virtually no traffic to detour, then all the routes begin to close down, creating even more chaos and the inability of community support teams to assist in resolving the accident and traffic. and starts seeking energy from other meridians like the heart or spleen, then these organs start to tire as well and other systems begin to lose optimal function. We can influence the blockage in meridians in many ways, but one of the most effective is to learn to trace the meridians with our electromagnetic meridian (directly on the skin or right above the skin), the energy of the meridian will follow the energy of the hands. By tracing a meridian forward along its defined pathway, energy is sent into the meridian to strengthen it. If tracing backwards (from its end point on the body to its beginning point), it will sedate, calm learn to trace all of the meridians, learn an affirmation associated with each, and learn some of the characteristics of each your own bodys energies, you will begin to sense if there is too much energy in the meridian and thus remove energy from it (like if you have pain along the meridian pathway) or if it needs a boost. arrhythmia, it is very beneficial to trace the meridian forward three times to boost the heart energy.

I am two years old and my color is blue merle. I was rescued a couple of months ago by an Animal Control Officer. I had second and third degree burns on my back, ears, and head. No one knows what happened to me but I went home with one of the vet techs while I recuper ated. I loved playing with her other dogs and her kids. Sometimes I act a little goofy but thats part of my endear ing charm. Im feeling much better and my wounds are almost all healed. My fairytale ending would be complete if I could just find a loving home. Adoption fee: $25 (regularly $75) during Animal Services Theres No Place Like Home adoption promo. My name is Mimi and I am a domestic short hair female gray and white tabby, age two. I may be a shelter cat but the folks at the Platinum Coast Cat Fanciers Show know a good kitty when they see one.
