The beach renourishment plan also includes sand replacement on northern Sanibel. Two additional bids for the project were also received, from Weeks Marine ($25.3 million) and Manson Construction Co. ($31.6 million), with the CEPD awarding the contract to the Illinois-based Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Company, the lowest responsive qualified contractor to submit a bid. According to CEPD Administrator Kathy Rooker, funding for the beach renourishment project will be drawn from a combination of state, county and local funds. Those funds will be used to finance the engineering, design and monitoring of the entire beach project, however, a majority of this money will be dedicated to the actual construction and moving of the sand. We are very pleased with the way things turned around after getting that sad news, said Rooker. On July 22, the CEPD received a letter from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers which stated that federal funding was being pulled from the project. Although the beach renourishment plan had already received approval and was only days away from its tar get start date, upon further analysis, it was determined that the project was not in compliance with federal policies and regulations. Specifically, the corps cited easements and parking at the beach. The CEPD, however, decided to take matters into its own hands and opened bidding for the project on August 9. Rooker stated that a pre-construction meeting will be held on Thursday, September 5, and they hope that construction crews begin pumping sand onto the beach by the end of October. The target completion date for the beach renourishment project is February 1. Last years honorable mention by Bill Fischer Sanibel Mayor Kevin Ruane will provide testimony on the Lake Okeechobee freshwater releases before the Florida Senate Select Committee on Indian River Lagoon and Lake Okeechobee Basin in Stuart, Florida on Thursday, August 22. The committee is comprised of eight members chosen by Senate President Don Gaetz, including Sen. Lizbeth Benacquisto of Southwest Florida. Mayor Ruane will testify regarding the significant, detrimental and economic impacts of the high flow regulatory discharges on Sanibel Island and the coastal waters of Lee County; the urgent need for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and South Florida Water Management District to consider all shortand longterm storage options; the necessity of securing federal funding for the C-43 West Basin Reservoir Project and other long-term solutions; and the importance of immediate ecological monitoringcontinued on page 11 The freshwater plume extends out of Redfish Pass into the Gulf of Mexico, as seen in this photograph taken on July 10, 2013
ISLAND SUN AUGUST 23, 20132 Attendance At Sanibel Historical Museum Is UpThe Sanibel Historical Museum and Village hosted more people, including children, during the season just ended (November 2012 to August 2013) than the one before (2011-2012). Adult attendance increased by seven percent, and childrens attendance increased by three percent. Were very happy more people are coming to the village, said board president Dorothy Donaldson. This helps us fulfill a large part of our mission, which is to educate people about the history of Sanibel. Our docents and volunteers deserve a lot of praise for their work this season. Were very grateful to them. Almost 10,000 people visited the historical village, which was open nine months from November to August, switching to half-days in May. The increase in attendance could be attributed to changes we made in our marketing plan, some new events, and the work of the Sanibel Island and Captiva Island Chamber of Commerce and the City of Sanibel, said Emilie Alfino, museum manager. We are working hard to get the word out about what a special place the village is to visit. Even people who think theyre not that interested in history inevitably find themselves captivated. For the upcoming 2013-2014 season, the village will re-open November 6 and hours will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays. Those hours remain in effect until May, when half-days resume until the museums last day of the season on August 2. The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village is located at 950 Dunlop Road (next to BIG ARTS). Full guided tours will resume upon the museums re-opening at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. each day. Admission will be $10 for 18 and older; children and members are free. For more information, call 472-4648, visit www. sanibelmuseum.org or email email@example.com.

Community Players Open Casting CallBIG ARTS Community Players is holding open auditions for the comedy-mystery Art of Murder from 7 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, August 27 and Wednesday, August 28 at Herb Strauss Theater, 2200 Periwinkle Way on Sanibel. All actors must bring a headshot and resume to the casting call. Director Peter Stearns is seeking two female and two male actors. The characters are: 1. Jack (age late 30s to early 50s) an eccentric and ruggedly handsome artist. 2. Vincent (age 30s to 60s) a highpowered flamboyant art dealer. 3. Annie (age late 20 to 30s) Jacks beautiful wife who is an artist. 4. Kate (age 20 to 30) an immigrant maid from Ireland. Produced by BIG ARTS Community Players, Art of Murder features dedicated volunteers and performers, both onstage and backstage.

She is reluctant to go along with the plan until Jacks threat of violence convinces her otherwise. Harried and annoyed, Vincent arrives. Will Jack carry out his plan? Will Annie help him? Or, is something else going on? Rehearsals are scheduled to begin on Wednesday, September 18 and will continue on Monday, September 23, Wednesday September 25 and Thursday September 26.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 23, 20134 Still Plenty To Prepare For This Hurricane Seasonby Jeff LysiakIt may have happened nine years ago, but Hurricane Charley still seems like a recent memory for Kristie Anders, education director at the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF). When the Category 4 storm passed over her North Captiva home on August 13, 2004, she and her husband, Red, decided to ride out the first major hurricane to strike Southwest Florida in recent years at the islands fire station. Together, they witnessed Mother Natures fury that left the island without power for 49 days. Looking out the door, you could see the water rising, said Anders, who spoke during a PowerPoint presentation on hurricane preparations last week at the SCCF Nature Center. I had no idea how we were going to get home. But Red, my little Cajun, had his machete, so that gave me some confidence that we could get there. Hurricane Charley which was followed later in the 2004 season by Frances (on September 5) and Ivan (on September 21) devastated Sanibel and Captiva, and remains one of the most important events to occur on the islands in the past century. And, Anders reminds folks, a hurricane of any strength or category can be catastrophic. Hurricanes are a crapshoot you can follow the cones of certainty or uncertainty, but even with a 72-hour window, you just dont know where its going to go, she said. During her presentation, Anders showed several pictures of the damage caused by Hurricane Charley, including the loss of the islands forest of Australian pine trees which used to line SanibelCaptiva Road. Another image was taken Kristie Anders points out the path of Hurricane Charley during a presentation on preparing for hurricanes last week at the SCCF Nature Center photo by Jeff Lysiak The roof of this home on North Captiva was torn off during Hurricane Charley, yet the wine glasses positioned on the dining room table downstairs remained intact photos by Kristie Anders THE ONLY HEALTH FOOD STORE ON THE ISLAND!

5 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 23, 2013above her own home, with writing on the roof: Red & Kristy OK, Send Gas = Water. A remarkable photograph of a neighbors home showed the roof completely torn off. However, Anders said that upon inspecting the houses interior, the napkins placed inside wine glasses on the dining room table remained intact following the storm. During the 45-minute presentation, Anders shared personal stories of her life and living through previous hurricanes, including Cleo in 1964 while on a family vacation to witness a Gemini space mission launch. One of the greatest threats on Sanibel and Captiva remains storm surge. The highest recorded surge came during an October, 1873 hurricane, when the waters rose 14 feet above sea level. By comparison, during Hurricane Charley, the highest recorded storm surge was eight feet. However, Anders stressed that being prepared for a hurricane at any time during the season which officially ends on November 30 was crucial. A lot of people think that by September, hurricane season is over but its not, said Anders. If you remember back to 2005, we ran out of names for storms. The 2005 Atlantic hurricane season, the most active season in recorded history, included five major hurricanes Dennis, Emily, Katrina, Rita and Wilma and 28 tropical and subtropical storms overall. In fact, tropical storm activity was recorded in the Atlantic through January 2006. To this day, I make a hotel reservation if I hear were gonna get a storm, said Anders. Im probably gonna go by myself. Red grew up in Louisiana, where theyre told to go outside and run off their energy. But its gonna be a tough call to make because were both volunteer firefighters. However, Anders advises everybody else: if a hurricane is coming, pack up and go. She even has the pictures to prove why. CorrectionIn the Submarine Veterans Memorial story that ran in the August 16 issue, Ken Jordan, a member of the local United States Submarine Veterans chapter, noted that more than 4,000 men have been lost while serving this country aboard submarines. That statistic was incorrect in the story. Also, the Fort Myers memorial to be dedicated in the near future contains the names of the 65 submarines (along with the dates the sub was put into service and when it was sunk) who have been lost over the past 113 years. That information was incomplete in the story.

Months before the event, managers requested speakers to address several recent concerns. Rob Caves, an attorney for Becker & Poliakoff, reported that ADA rules on ser vice and emotional support pets are often different for condominium resorts. Guests often expect that pet rules they enjoy at hotels and motels will also apply to condominium resorts. That is not necessarily the case. Condominium properties may fall under the Fair Housing Act. HUD permits an FHA property to ask persons who are seeking emotional support animals to provide documentation from a physician, psychiatrist, social worker or other mental health professional that the animal provides emotional support that alleviates one or more of the identified systems of an existing disability. Attorney Caves encouraged associations to draft pet rules in accordance with the prefer ences of the owners framed by the applicable federal laws and then document in writing all requests and responses for pet accommodations. Sanibels Emergency Management Director Lt. William Dalton outlined how the city will conduct operations during a disaster. Residents and business owners and key staff should already have their hurricane passes; they are available on-line and at the police station. In an emergency, the city will continue to communicate primarily through their email alerts (sign up at mysanibel.com) and Facebook, and would activate their twitter account, in addition to other communication mediums. If a voluntary evacuation is called, some assistance from the city may be available for dire emergencies. If a mandatory evacuation is called, staffs focus is on emergency functions so they will not have the manpower to assist residents. In all situations, residents should plan well in advance, keep informed as situations develop and expect to take care of securing their property and planning for their own safety. Detailed plans for re-entry for residents and businesses are in place. The complete hurricane plan is on the City of Sanibel website. Because of excellent results during and after Hurricane Charley, Sanibels emergency management plan has become a model for other communities. The city manager is often invited to speak at conferences throughout the state to explain Sanibels hurricane plan. Telecommunications expert Dave Waks noted that visitors coming to Sanibel evaluate WiFi reception when selecting a place of accommodation. Waks said they have found people wandering around the Pointe Santo parking lot checking reception and then checking out of another resort and into Pointe Santo because of WiFi capabilities there. Waks and his wife, Sandy Teger, spent their careers in the telecommunications industry. After buying at Pointe Santo, Waks became involved in setting up the WiFi, Internet and video TV system at that property. Waks notes that five years ago, a family might vacation with a couple of cellular phones and a laptop. Todays vacationers come with cellular phones for each family member, multiple iPads, laptops and WiFi cameras. They expect excellent reception and transmission service for all these devices simultaneously. To provide optimum service for guests that is affordable for the association, Pointe Santo blends a combination of Comcast TV, CenturyLink phone ser vice and a third party provider for WiFi. Planning sufficient and affordable service can be complex. It will require continuing changes and investment as technology continues to evolve. Waks is now a full time Sanibel resident and consultant. City Manager Judie Zimomra and Police Chief Bill Tomlinson asked managers for their help in keeping properties secure. Zimomra reported that several association officers have visited her office to complain about rowdy behavior on their properties over the Independence Day holiday. In checking police reports, there were no calls from these properties requesting police assistance or monitor ing. The police want to know about problem tenants. They can help. Tomlinson reported that a burglar has been captured recently. This burglar is suspected in a number of county-wide thefts from autos. It is believed that the person burglarizing gulf front residences is still at large. At condominium resorts, break-ins occur in units that have been left unlocked. There is a $25,000 reward for information leading to the capture of this thief. Property owners are encouraged to advise their guests to lock their doors, sliders and windows. Union Mechanical sponsored the annual CASI luncheon for managers. S anibel CERT L ooking 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 N ovember 5. Please contact Assistant Chief Matt Scott at 472-5525 or email@example.com if you would like to participate in this training opportunity. D ark S ky Ordinance Guide A vailable OnlineThe City of Sanibel is providing online informational guides to Sanibel property owners about the Dark Sky Ordinance.

9 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 23, 2013 New App Designed To Help ManateesA Florida-based corporation, EarthNC, through its conservation venture Conserve.IO, has teamed up with Save the Manatee Club to help boaters reduce the chance of hitting and harming manatees in Florida waterways with the free Manatee Alert App. This smart phone-based map displays instructive visual alerts, notifying boaters when they are approaching manatee speed zones. It also helps facilitate the reporting of injured manatees and manatee harassment to the proper authorities to ensure urgent help where needed. The new Manatee Alert App is a good example of how smart phone technology can help the public become better informed, help protect an endangered species, and contribute to preserving our environment, said Brad Winney of Conserve.IO. With the majority of the public now having some form of smart phone or tablet, applications like Manatee Alert can provide safety and conservation messages in real time. During the busy Labor Day weekend and throughout the year, manatees are especially vulnerable to the heavy boat traffic moving through the waterways in every direction. Floridas manatees have already suffered a catastrophic year due to a prolonged red tide event in Southwest Florida and an unknown toxin in the Indian River Lagoon. At the current rate, the mortality for 2013 will likely break all previous yearly mortality records since record keeping began. In addition to these complex events, boat collisions continue to pose a serious long-term threat to the manatee population. Since many manatees inhabiting Florida waters bear the scars from past encounters with boats, use of the Manatee Alert App can go a long way towards preventing such injuries and deaths, said Dr. Katie Tripp, Save the Manatee Clubs director of science and conservation. Tripp is excited about the new apps ability to help boaters help manatees. People from all over the world vacation in Florida and many recreate on Florida waters. Public awareness and education to reach residents and visiting boaters are essential keys to manatee protection. The Florida boating community is encouraged to get the free Manatee Alert App as well as Save the Manatee Clubs free public awareness materials to help prevent manatee injuries, suffering and death. Waterproof boating banners, dock signs for Florida shoreline property owners, boating decals and waterway cards containing safe boating information are available by contacting Save the Manatee Club via e-mail at education@ savethemanatee.org, by regular mail at 500 N. Maitland Ave., Maitland, FL 32751, or by calling toll free at 1-800432-JOIN (5646). Manatee protection tips for boaters can also be found on the clubs website at http://www.savethemanatee.org/boatertips.htm. Go to http://bit.ly/15EYen6 to download the free Manatee Alert App. Find out more information on endangered manatees and the AdoptA-Manatee program by visiting www. savethemanatee.org. Save the Manatee Club, a Florida-based international nonprofit conservation and manatee welfare organization, was started in 1981 by U.S. Senator Bob Graham and singer/ songwriter Jimmy Buffett so the general public could participate in conservation efforts to save the endangered manatee.

Rosh Hashanah is the beginning of the Jewish New Year, when Jews all over the world begin again to read the first five books of the Bible embodied in the Torah. The central observance of Rosh Hashanah is the sounding of the shofar, the rams horn. It is the first of the Ten Days of Repentance ending with Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, a day of fasting, when at sundown the shofar is heard again. Additional observances include eating special foods including a piece of an apple dipped in honey to symbolize the desire for a sweet year and wishing each other Leshanah tovah tikateiv veteichateim, May you be inscribed and sealed for a good year. And, as with every Sabbath service and holiday, after candlelighting and prayers are said, blessings are recited over wine and bread. The Bat Yam congregation meets at the Sanibel Congregational Church, 2050 Periwinkle Way. All residents and visitors are welcome. There is no fee to attend. Rabbi James Rudin will officiate with the assistance of Cantor Douglas Renfore. Reverend John Danner will participate. Please call Temple President Allan Silberman at 472-5317 for further information. The schedule for services is as follows: Wednesday, September 4 Rosh Hashanah Evening Service 8 p.m. Thursday, September 5 Rosh Hashanah Morning Service 10:30 a m.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 23, 201314 Birds Eye ViewDo You Like Brown Water?by Mark Bird WestallI bet most of you have either noticed, or at least heard about, whats happening to our beautiful waters around Sanibel lately. Its kind of difficult to enjoy or promote our beautiful beaches when the water washing to shore looks like something you wouldnt want to stick your toe into. Historically, the nutrient-laden water that is now lapping up against our shores would start as rainfall all the way up near the headwaters of the Kissimmee River watershed and start a slow meandering southward journey on its way to Lake Okeechobee. Once in the lake, as the water level rose at the end of summer, it would sheet flow out of the southern end of the lake and slowly work its way into the Everglades system and, eventually, out into Florida Bay, purifying itself the whole way. The system was very functional and South Florida, as a result, was resplendent with beautiful landscapes and wildlife galore and people flocked here to live and enjoy the areas pleasant environs. Originally, the Caloosahatchee River watershed wasnt even connected to Lake Okeechobee except occasionally during very high rainfall events; its headwaters usually starting around Labelle. The same was true for the East Coast; there was no connection between Lake Okeechobee and the Atlantic Ocean. But today, thanks to the wonderful technology of the army corps of engineers and the various responsible Florida Water Management Districts, the Caloosahatchee Basin and the St. Lucie Basin are receiving huge amounts of unpurified water discharge from the lake that those systems have no capacity to handle. Of course, all of Floridas peninsula natural habitats have adapted over the eons to absorbing occasional huge amounts of excess water runoff because these systems evolved in a hurricane zone. But what humans are basically doing to these ecosystems today is similar to having each of these systems hit by several hurricanes every summer. These ecosystems are being overdosed with too much water from the lake and the nutrients that comes with it. No ecosystem can survive with that kind of exceptional stress! And, of course, the sad part of all this is that the governing agencies know that they are destroying South Floridas freshwater wetlands and estuarine systems and have been dragging their feet for decades in seriously changing how the system is managed. Now, dont get me wrong, some positive things have happened. Millions, probably billions, have already been spent (land has been bought, parts of the Kissimmee River have been dechannelized, and just recently, a huge chunk of the Tamiami Trail was bridged so water could more efficiently flow under it). But the fact remains; the system is still screwed up and it is still far from functioning anything like it is supposed to. So why doesnt the government fix the mistakes of the past? I shock people on my canoe trips when I tell them it is because we dont like the politics of Castro in Cuba. What does Castro in Cuba have to do with water management in South Florida, they ask? Because of that one fact, we give huge subsidies (a few billion dollars) to the sugarcane industry on the south side of Lake Okeechobee every year. Those subsidies give the sugar growers political clout. They dont want all of that water from the lake to flow through their land on its natural way to the Everglades so they use their political power to convince the water managers that they should divert the water somewhere else; and we who live on the coasts are the recipients of those political decisions. Therefore, dont get mad at me, but I think its a good thing that our water and the East Coast water has turned brown and there are lots of algae blooms! That may be the only way to get a larger amount of people yelling and screaming at their state and federal politicians. As long as we were not that affected by how the government was mismanaging the South Florida ecosystem, why should the masses be all that concerned? Its not just those crazy animal lovers and tree huggers that are upset. Now, anyone who likes to go to the beach will be disappointed. The only way we are going to get the politicians to really get serious about appropriating the necessary funds and directing the management agencies to implement workable solutions will be if the politicians realize that the voters can remove them from office. Right now there are lots of rallies being planned and meetings that can be attended and those things should be supported, but everyone should let their elected officials know that the people of South Florida are sick and tired of having dirty water dumped on them. Im reminded of the scene from the movie Network, Im mad as Hell and Im not going to take this anymore! If we, as individuals, dont get involved, nothing will really change. I firmly believe that we humans have the technological capability to build the infrastructure that will let the water leave Lake Okeechobee, flow through or around the sugarcane fields, get purified before it reaches the Everglades system and, thus, let the system function like it was meant to. I am still not convinced we have the political desire to make that a reality. The only way it will happen is if you let the politicians know how you feel!

Father And Son Team Sponsoring Fishing TournamentSanibel Air Conditioning, Inc. is doing it again fishing for a good cause. Co-owner Bryan Hayes and his son Daniel, 12, are returning again this year as a Silver Sponsor to defend their first place title in the Panther Baseball Alumni Clubs annual fishing tournament. To strengthen the team, co-owner Todd Hayes and his son Tyler, 7, will be participating. The tournament will take place on Saturday, September 7 and raises money to support the Cypress Lake High School baseball team, paying for club operations including insurance, supplies and college scholarships for student athletes. The tournament will be held at Doc Fords Rum Bar & Grille on Fort Myers Beach from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., closing at 4 p.m. with a live weigh-in and results ceremony. Last year, the Hayes father and son team took first place in the tournament with their catch, weighing in at over 6.5 pounds and measuring 26.5 inches in length. The team beat out the second place winner by just two ounces. They chose to donate their $1,500 first place prize to the baseball program. The tournament raised $8,000. We had such a great time fishing last year, and winning it together will be something that we will both cherish for the rest of our lives, said Bryan Hayes. Our family loves fishing and its an added benefit of being able to do something that you really love and for a great cause. And when we get to do this with our kids, and teach them the value of support in or community, that is the best lesson and experience that they get to walk away with.

Matt MitchellThese past few weeks, all I seem to see on the local TV news are stories about the water releases from Lake O and how bad our water quality is. Add to that some polluted water shots from near stagnant Cape Coral canals, where over-fertalized lawns and grass clippings are blown into the canals, then switch the story to a fishing guide giving an interview about how slow business and fishing are. It just drives me nuts. None of these reports are good for anyone who makes there living in or around the water and worse yet, its simply not the truth. Im not a fan of all this fresh water being dumped on us, but it does not appear to have affected our fishing as drastically as is being reported. Sure, everyones business has slowed down... its just that time of year. As you know, I spend lots of time on our local waters and have not found our water conditions worse than basically any other rainy summer. When the water coming down the river gets really nasty, all the bait and fish in the southern sound disappear. This has not happened; in fact, some of the best fishing action has been aound St James City and in the mouth of the river over the past few weeks. This area has been on fire with big redfish and snook. Local commercial fisherman fishing for blue crabs are experiencing some of the best blue crab fishing they have seen in 10 years as the crabs are getting flushed out of the river by the fresh water releases. Basically, visiting Southwest Florida in the summer months and expecting crystal clear water will not ever happen. Its like going to the Everglades and expecting to see clear mountain streams. Fishing kept going strong this week with redfish, snook and even some really big trout caught throughout the Sound. The first really large schools of redfish were reported in the northern sound, or to be more specific, around Useppa and Cabbage Key. These big, over-sized redfish patrol this area every year and with some of the schools numbering hundreds of fish during calm conditions, they can be easy to spot. Big schools of redfish will be more numerous as we move into September and October. This marks the prime time for redfish action in our area. Just about any bait or artifical pitched out in front of these schools will get inhaled. Look for these redfish to start showing up on Redlight Shoal, Captiva Rocks and in Redfish and Captiva Passes any day now. While working the flats in areas of feeding birds between Chino Island and Red Light Shoal this week, anglers caught some of the largest trout I have seen in months. Bait of choice was a small live pinfish or grunt rigged a few feet under a popping cork. Some of these trout are well over the 20-inch max. Our big one of the week went 26 inches and was pushing five pounds. Along with lots of smaller trout, expect ladyfish, mackerel, bluefish and jacks to keep you busy. The larger trout seem to be on and around the smaller grass humps in three to four feet of water and just out from the big baitfish schools. This whole area is loaded up with massive schools of small whitebait. Snook action slowed a little for me in the passes this week. I think this was partly because of the higher day time stages of the tide. Mangrove shorelines held snook of all sizes during the higher water periods, with these snook feeding best while the water was flooding in. Big pinfish tail hooked and pitched to mangrove points caught snook up to 40 inches. Look for these snook to be on or around mangrove shorelines and points with fast moving currents. Often, the bigger snook will be out in sandholes 10 to 20 feet from the shorelines. Docks around the mouth of the river were also a good bet on a strong falling tide to hook into a giant snook. In this black water, the bigger the live bait, the more vibration it puts out, and that vibration is what will draw that snook in to strike. Several times while fishing this week, we had bull sharks crash our party. After releasing a smaller snook while fishing in the mouth of the river, we saw a big swirl about 20 feet behind the boat that was no dolphin. Putting on another bait as I walked back to the bow of the boat to recast, I did not think anything of it. To my surprise, the likely culprit: a five to six foot bull shark was just sitting there, hanging out under the bow of the boat Then the following day while on a good redfish bite in the Wulfert Keys area, we had a big bull shark come out of nowhere and charge right down the shoreline, finning and spooking our fish. Once the shark went through, the sandhole bite was over. Sharks can be encountered just about anywhere through our area this time of year. Some of the best fishing I can ever remember this time of year was in the two months following Hurricane Charley. After the hurricane, the amount of water coming out of Lake O was at an all time high and was as brown and nasty looking as I can ever remember. Yes, all this dark water is far from pretty and not the best thing for the eco-system, but dont let a few poorly informed people fool you... fishing for the month of August is still about as good as it gets.Capt.

19 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 23, 2013 S D Taste of the Islands Peoples Choice Award Winner Seven Continuous Years Lunch & Dinner 472-8138 SANIBEL MARINA SANIBEL THRILLER CRUISES SANIBEL THRILLER CRUISES CROW Case Of The Week Eastern Gray Squirrels In The Nurseryby Patricia MolloyHe is a little guy that came in with a knot on his head, said one of CROWs students regarding patient #2254. With no history available, it was surmised that the injury was possibly caused by a cat attack. As the most commonly seen mammal east of the Mississippi River, the Eastern gray squirrel (Sciurus carlinensis) delights audiences with its playful antics. They scurry along telephone lines before leaping through the air and landing on the nearest tree limb. They are known to chatter loudly to warn their furry friends of the impending danger posed by a prowling tom cat or a family dog. Despite their name, gray squirrels may have coats of varying colors: reddish, cream and black. Preferring nut-bearing trees such as hickory and oak, a squirrel will spend its days gnawing on berries, grains and nuts or nibbling on flower blossoms. With a territory ranging two to seven acres, the highly-developed olfactory system of an adult gray squirrel helps it locate cached food. While two other species of squirrels the fox squirrel (Sciurus niger) and the Southern flying squirrel (Glaucomys volans) are also found in Florida, the Eastern gray is the one which is most familiar to the American urbanite. Has anyone listened to him lately? asked Dr. Heather. When I listened to his chest, the left side was OK like a mild crackle but the right side sounded really bad. Its definitely all in his nose, so some of that may be causing the upper respiratory noise. The student responded, Hes on antibiotics right now. We are watching him and he seems to be doing OK. Students and volunteers work around the clock to care for the patients in the nursery, as youngsters must be feed every two hours. Currently, the clinic has a staggering 32 baby Eastern gray squirrels, in addition to dozens of little raccoons, Virginia opossums and a wide variety of tiny songbirds.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 23, 201320 The Raymond Burr Memorial Garden At The Shell Museum Gets UpdatedVisitors to The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum never miss the ring-shaped area paved with red bricks just before the entrance to the museum. Marked by a small pedestal witth a commemorative plaque, the Raymond Burr Memorial is home to a few hundred bricks inscribed with names of friends, member, pets or late loved ones. The garden gets updated throughout the year with the addition of new bricks. The garden was completed in 1996 to commemorate the the head of its capital campaign and supporter Raymond Burr, who passed away in 1993. Burr, widely known for his portrayal of Perry Mason in the TV series of the same name, was instrumental in the museums initial development and credited with bringing public attention to the project. An avid shell collector, Burr s donations of his shells and fundraising activities helped start the museum. A tribute in the Museums newsletter shortly after Burrs passing, and retold by William F. Hallstead in his book Idea To Reality (which provides the history of the Museum from its inception to opening) reads, We knew him as a dynamic booster of the Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum a warm personal friend. So beloved was Raymond Burr by so many people, that his passing, even weeks later, still seems a shock. Donors purchase the bricks for $150 and choose the inscription. If interested to make a donation and for more information, contact The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum at 395-2233.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 23, 201322 Plant SmartVarigated Flax Lilyby Gerri ReavesVarigated flax lily (Dianella tasmanica varigata) is an erect grass-like groundcover widely used in South Florida. Although native to Southeastern Australia and Tasmania, it is classified as Florida-friendly because it is highly drought tolerant and non-invasive. The plants ornamental value comes from the strap-like keeled leaves of neutral white and green, not from the pretty but insignificant flowers. The panicles of star-like flowers have pale blue downward curving petals and yellow stamens and anthers. They dangle from long stems and bloom mostly in spring and summer, followed by tiny inedible berries of metallic blue. The aboriginal people of Australia use those berries as dye in basket-making. This hardy and versatile plant does best in full sun but will tolerate shade. It grows to a height of one to three feet with an equal breadth. Typical uses are as a border or accent plant, or to add volume to the landscape. The muted color of the white-banded leaves contrasts attractively with more vividly colored plants. Flax lily is also a popular indoor or outdoor pot plant. It spreads via underground stems called rhizomes, which can be divided for propagation. If you are in search of low-maintenance groundcovers, consider including Florida natives, too. For example, blue-eyed grass ( Sisyrinchium angustifolium), like flax lily, has blue flowers and yellow centers, and muhly grass (Muhlenbergia capillaris) delivers soft pink plumes of flowers as well as cover for wildlife. Sources: floridafriendlyplants.com, gcrec.ifas.ufl.edu, anbg.gov.au, and en.wikipedia.org. Plant Smart explores sustainable gardening practices that will help you create an environmentally responsible, low-maintenance South Florida landscape.

As soon as we arrived at the trailhead to the beach, we saw a small group of people watching something that looked like a small whale or even a group of dolphins lying in the water, but nearly on the sand. It turned out to be manatees in the process of making more manatees! In all the years we have been spending summers on Sanibel, we have never seen such a thing and were very excited when we found that they were not so close to shore because they were sick... but quite the opposite!

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 23, 201324 An Audubon Florida Special PlaceJonathan Dickinson State Parkby Greg BraunNestled as a gateway between the megalopolis of Southeast Florida and the less-intensively developed Treasure Coast, 11,500-acre Jonathan Dickinson State Park (JDSP) provides easy access for nature and history enthusiasts. Named after a survivor of a 1696 hurricane-related shipwreck in the area, Jonathan Dickinson has evolved into an environmentally valuable mosaic of natural communities that provide habitat for over 150 species of birds and 35 species of threatened and endangered species. Attractions of the park are as varied as the personalities of its visitors: birders who appreciate the largest population of Florida Scrub-Jays in Southeast Florida; canoeists and kayakers who explore miles of the Loxahatchee River (Floridas first federally designated Wild and Scenic River); hikers, equestrians and off-road bicyclists who enjoy dozens of miles of mixed-use trails; campers who use backcounty, full-service campsites or rental cabins; historians interested in the sites use as Camp Murphy a World War II military training camp or Trapper Nelsons camp; native plant enthusiasts in search of rarities such as the federallyendangered four-petal pawpaw and dancing lady orchids; and wildlife watchers who enjoy seeing and photographing bald eagles, river otters, colorful lubber grasshoppers and butterflies. The parks stewardship of firedependent sand pine scrub and pine flatwoods communities is constantly tested by challenges to manage fire in an increasingly wildland-urban interface. With I-95 and the Florida Turnpike bordering the parks western boundary, highly-travelled US 1 serving as the parks eastern boundary, and residential development to the north and south, the need for precise smoke management makes conducting fire prescriptions a complex and strategic combination of weather, fuel loads and public relations. To visitors though, the fruits of these burns are self-evident the bright new re-growth of wiregrass, saw palmetto, rosemary and vibrant blooms of meadow beauty, grass-pink orchids and coreopsis. The 4.2-mile Park Drive leads visitors through a cross-section of several of the natural communities of the park from sand pine scrub near the entrance ( on the west side of US 1 between Jupiter and Hobe Sound), through pine flatwoods, across cypress-dominated continued on page 25 J ACARANDA The Entertainment Nightly in Sanibels Social Scene 1223 PERIWINKLE WAY, SANIBEL 472-1771 Happy Apps $5.95Sesame Encrusted Ahi Tuna, Crispy Fried Calamari, Chilled Oysters, Steamed Shrimp, BBQ Beef Satays, Mussels Marinara, Chicken WingsSanibels Best HAPPY HOUR5 7 p.m. Nightly in the lounge1/2 Price DrinksCall & Well Liquor, Draft Beer Selections, Select House Wine The Loxahatchee Queen provides visitors a pontoon-boat view of the rivers mangroves and cypress trees, ospreys and alligators during the hour-long excusion to and from the Trapper Nelson interpretive site photo by Greg Braun Some of JDSPs scrub-jays are banded as part of a multi-year study that helps land managers understand the effects of their fire management activities photo by Marta Gordon Several miles of the Florida Trail extend through JDSP and provide recreational opportunities, including the annual Ocean-to-Lake hike photo by Greg Braun
25 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 23, 2013 From page 24Jonathan Dickinson State Parkwetland strands, around shallow, seasonally-flooded depression marsh wetlands to the Loxahatchee River frontage and the recently-opened Elsa Kimbell Education Center. The excur sion may take 10 minutes for motorists, a half-hour for bicyclists, two days for backpackers, or untold hours for birders, plant enthusiasts and photographers. Ecologically, Jonathan Dickinson State Parks value is evidenced by detailed investigations into local populations of flora and fauna. As fledglings from the first bald eagle nest documented in Martin County in the late 1970s have returned to raise future generations, the eagle population has now grown to over a dozen nests in the county a tribute to a combination of the tenacity and adaptability of the species, the protections of the Endangered Species Act and Martin Countys wellearned reputation for habitat preservation and strong commitment to protecting the urban services boundary. In these financially-challenging and uncertain times, Audubon members and our partners, including the Friends of Jonathan Dickinson State Park and the governmental and NGO partners on the Loxahatchee River Management Coordinating Council, remain vigilant in the need to advocate for environmentally-conscious management as exemplified by the public outcry that was necessary to thwart a recent legislative attempt to site a golf course, resort and RV park at JDSP. This column is one of a series from Audubon Florida. Author Greg Braun is a professional avian and estuarine ecologist and environmental advocate who has taught bird ID courses and led field trips at Jonathan Dickinson and was the principal author of Martin Countys Manatee Protection Plan.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 23, 201330 August Book Discussion At Sanibel Public LibraryThe Sanibel Public Library Book Discussion Group will meet on Wednesday, August 28 to talk about The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield, the focus of the book discussion meeting. The meeting is free and open to the public. The discussion begins at 2 p.m. in Meeting Room #4 of the library, across from the elevator on the ground floor. Edie Gleason will lead the discussion. The Thirteenth Tale is a compelling emotional mystery about family secrets and the magic of books and storytelling. A dying writer bids a young bookshop assistant to write her biography. The books featured for the book group discussions are available and located in the library near the reference desk. While it is preferable to come having read the book to be able to join in the lively discussion, all are welcome. If you have questions, call the Sanibel Public Library at 472-2483.

Children who participated earned points for reading. Once the children turned in their points, they were rewarded by selecting a book for themselves and a book for the children at the Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida. The program not only encourages the children to read, it also gives them a better understanding of charity. What a great group of youth. They love to read and they love to give back to the community. I think it is terrific, said library staff member Betsy Eidem. During the program, Miss Barb also had the children perform fun tasks that encourage reading, like reading restaurant menus, completing word puzzles and writing poems. One participant, 4th grader Will LeJeune, presented a poem that he wrote to Miss Barb. His poem seemed to best capture the theme of the summer reading program. Will completed his reading projects and is happy to be able to donate books to the Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida.

Located on the corner of Periwinkle Way and Lagoon Drive, in front of the current Sanibel Sea School proper ty, the building was purchased via a partnership with the Plank/DiCarlo Family Foundation on behalf of the educational facility. According to Dr. Bruce Neill, founder and director of the school, the foundation has agreed on a long-term lease of the building to the Sanibel Sea School for a nominal fee. Both of the foundation partners, Scott Plank and Dana DiCarlo, have supported the Sea School since it started, said Dr. Neill. Our goal is to create a community anchor that will serve the neighborhood of the east end of the island. The centerpiece of this project is the Sanibel Sea School flagship campus that will be a model of sustainable commerce. Our goal is to greatly reduce traffic impacts to local secondary streets, increase the aesthetics of the neighborhood and provide activities and a place for Sanibel inhabitants to congregate and enjoy an environmentally-friendly lifestyle. Plans call for the new Sanibel Sea School building, which currently houses retail space and administrative offices for the educational facility, to be divided into six separate areas: allowing access to the original Sanibel Sea School building from Periwinkle Way use) In addition, there will be a courtyard located between the two buildings. When the Sanibel Sea School is in session, this courtyard will be used exclusively by the school. When not in session, the courtyard will be used to offer community yoga classes as well as other educational or health-related activities.

20% OFF Captiva Crab Races Help Raise Money For The United WayThe Crab Races on Captiva at the Tween Waters Inn and Resort are both fun and have a great result. More than $180,000 has been donated to the United Way of Lee, Hendry and Glades since 1984. In the last 10 years alone, they have raised over $100,000. Members of the audience pay $2 to $5 to enter a crab in the race and name their crabs. The crabs are gathered in the center of the table and race to the winners line. The race starts with a sound blast from a conch shell, and Tim Jardis, the ringmaster, makes sure everyone has a great time. The crab races have been called the stupidest thing youve ever seen. Tim hands out kazoos and teases and jokes around to be sure it is fun for everyone. He says that though officially the winner gets a 50/50 split, often the winner donates the entire pot to the United Way. Cliff Smith, President of the United Way of Lee, Hendry and Glades, recently presented an award to Tim Jardis for his support of the organization. Tim has been a great supporter of the United Way for over 25 years, and we sincerely appreciate what he has done, said Smith. Where else can you go to have this much fun and help a great cause like the United Way? The Crab Races are held on Monday and Thursday evenings, with two shows per night. Call 472-5161 for more information. United Way of Lee, Hendry and Glades raises funds for 70 United Way Partner Agencies and over 170 programs.

3B ISLAND SUN AUGUST 23, 2013 Executive D irector N amed A t CROWThe Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlifes Board of Directors has selected a new Executive Director to lead the organization. Stephen V. Calabro was hired to replace Peg Albert, who has served as the organizations Interim Executive Director since April 2013. Calabro is an experienced college executive with a broad array of experience. Most recently, he served as President of Southwest Florida College, where he helped expand the schools footprint from one location to five campuses. Prior to serving as President, he was the schools Executive Vice President and Regulatory Counsel. CROW will benefit greatly from Steves wide range of expertise in finance, staff management and community outreach, said CROW Board President Melissa Congress. At one time, he was the dean of academic and student affairs. Coupled with his extensive career in higher education, I expect hell help improve and expand our student program tremendously. Calabros outreach and community affairs involvement spans a variety of organizations and areas. A Fort Myers Rotary Club member for 13 years, he is a former trustee with the Southwest Florida Chamber of Commerce, has served on the executive leadership committee of the American Heart Association, and co-chaired the Southwest Florida Food and Wine Gala. Congress said that in the meantime, CROW has been fortunate to have Peg Albert as its Interim Executive Director. Peg has really played an important role for us. Shes moved us forward operationally and structurally, and positioned the organization to meet the expanding role were playing in wildlife medicine, Congress added. Stephen V. Calabro D ing Welcomes N ew S hared-U se Intern L athropUpon the successful outcome of an experiment last year, when Ding Darling Wildlife SocietyFriends of the Refuge (DDWS) hired two interns whose services the society would share with the refuge, a new shared-use intern, Sarah Lathrop, recently joined the refuge team. I was actually getting ready to accept a position at a third-party logistics company in Indianapolis, said Lathrop. Then I received a call from [DDWS executive director] Birgie Vertesch purposing an internship opportunity I couldnt refuse. Lathrop graduated from Hanover College in Indianapolis this past May with a degree in Spanish and was a member of the Business Scholars Program. I had no idea what I wanted to do when I graduated, but I knew I wasnt ready to work at a 9-to-5, suit-and-tie desk job, Lathrop said. When Birgie called and explained the internship opportunity at Ding Darling, I thought it was too good to be true. The Indianapolis native admits a lifelong love for animals and earlier ambitions to major in biology. She arrived to Sanibel Island on July 25 and since then has already traveled to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Regional Office in Atlanta to attend a training course on redesigning websites for the refuge and DDWS. Plus my education in Spanish will be put to good use, Lathrop added. I will also be helping in reaching out to the Hispanic communities in Florida to raise awareness about conservation and the refuge. We discovered in the past year what a great concept it is to share interns with the society, said Supervisory Refuge Ranger Toni Westland. The refuge and society work together for a common goal, so it makes perfect sense. Were just so thankful that the society chooses to help us out in this one of many ways they do. DDWS finances living-expense stipends for several refuge interns each year to supplement staff cutbacks due to federal budget constraints. To support DDWS and the refuge with a tax-deductible gift, visit www.dingdar lingsociety.org or contact Birgie Vertesch at 292-0566 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

As an estate planning attorney, I am much too familiar with the planning that one should implement prior to the last stages of life. While I seem to always be focused on that stage because of professional responsibilities, I realize that there are many other stages along lifes pathway. And these stages have significant emotional impact, of which I am not immune to experiencing, just like everyone else. I mention this because by the time you read this column, Patti and I will have dropped our first-born off to begin her freshman year at Brandeis University. Thats in Boston. As in 1,500 miles away. While Ive been counseled by friends and family whove gone through this stage before me, its still unfamiliar territory. How does one plan for dropping your child off at a school far away? Yes, I understand the logistics of what is needed for the dorm room, packing clothes and preparing budgets. Thats the easy part. What Im trying to prepare for is the emotion. And what wisdom do you try to impart to your on-the-cusp-of-adulthood child as she enters one of the most exciting stages of her own life? It seems like yesterday that my little Gabrielle was bouncing on my knee, with a cute ribbon in her hair as she giggled at my antics. Prior to Gabis birth, my wife and I experienced some setbacks that led us to wonder whether we would ever be able to have any children. Thankfully, we would eventually be blessed with three healthy daughters. Gabi was our first. There are certain benefits to being the first child, of course. Everything Gabi did, from starting elementary school to becoming a Bat Mitzvah girl to graduating from high school, made us more apprehensive and excited than the times her younger sisters experienced the same events. Being the oldest also means that your parents are rookies as you encounter milestones while growing up. And rookies make mistakes. We certainly did. Despite our mistakes, Patti and I pat ourselves on the back as we have raised an independent, confident and apparently happy daughter, who is off to begin her quest for diplomas, careers and to make a claim for her very own future. Weve had practices saying our goodbyes to Gabi. This isnt the first time that shes been away for extended periods of time. Since Gabi was nine years old, shes attended sleep-away camp in the north Georgia mountains for a month every summer. Shes been to Israel for several weeks on a youth group excursion. She even attended a Brandeis summer program two years ago where she fell in love with the university and its surroundings. Over 11 weeks this past summer, we barely saw her as she was a counselor actually earning money at the same camp that she (and her sisters) attended for those many years. But this time will be different. Gabis bedroom wont be occupied but for a few precious days a year. Before we know it, shell have graduated from this stage too. She doesnt plan to return to Fort Myers, or even Florida for that matter, expressing a desire to start her life in a major metropolitan area up north. While she has yet to experience a full New England winter, I dont doubt that shell adapt and find the accoutrements of a large metropolis both challenging and rewarding. So, life continues on as we adapt to a new stage. It reminds me that when youre not the professional giving advice, but rather the one living the experience, its a whole different ballgame. But thats what makes life so sweet and interesting. I wouldnt trade it for anything else. Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at www.sbshlaw.com. Will PowerStages Of Lifeby Craig R.

6B ISLAND SUN AUGUST 23, 2013 Sports Illustrated A rticle D etails T he T alents Of S ano A nd Buxton T he Promise Of A Franchise Rebirthby Ed FrankFor suffering Minnesota Twins fans the team is headed for its third straight season of 90-plus losses pick up a copy of last weeks Sports Illustrated and your hopes will rise with every word of the lengthy story proclaiming that the Twins own the top two prospects in all of baseball. The prospects, of course, are third baseman Miquel Sano and outfielder Bryon Buxton, both with deep roots right here in Fort Myers. Every adjective, every superlative imaginable is written to describe these two phenoms. Buxton, just 19 years old, currently patrolling center field for the Fort Myers Miracle, is described by his manager Doug Mientkiewicz as follows: What he is doing at his age, its comical. He looks like a god wearing a baseball uniform. If he were playing centerfield in the majors, hed be a Gold Glover right now. The Twins No. 1 draft pick a year ago (his signing bonus was $6 million), Buxton began this season at Low A Cedar Rapids where he hit .341 with 55 RBIs in 68 games. Quickly promoted here to High A Fort Myers, the youngster began the week hitting .314 in his first 42 games at this higher level. He likely will remain here for the remainder of the season for the playoff-off bound Miracle, but hes certain to move up to Double A or Triple A next season. In fact, some predict that both Buxton and Sano will be wearing a Twins uniform by next year. Heres another paragraph about Buxton, the second youngest player in the Florida State League, in the Sports Illustrated story: Barely a year removed from his senior prom, Buxton is already being called, among other things, a baseball phenomenon, the savior of Minnesota baseball, the next Mike Trout. As good as he is, the article says, he may not be the most talented prospect in the Twins system. That lofty title may belong to Sano, the multi-talented third baseman presently with Double A New Britain after starting the season here with the Miracle. Double A pitching is considerably tougher than Single A, but in 54 games with New Britain, Sano already had hit 15 home runs and driven in 44 runs. At 6-foot, 4-inches and 200 pounds, Sano, the article says, is the kind of physical specimen that would have SEC football coaches breaking NCAA recruiting rules. The lack of home run power has been a major factor in the three-year demise of the Twins. In fact, Minnesota hasnt had a player hit more than 35 home runs in a season since 1970. Sano is the middle-of-the-order masher the franchise is starving for, the article said. Whether youre a Twins fan or just a baseball fan in general, you will find the article fascinating. Only five other teams in the history of baseball have had two players ranked as high as Buxton and Sano at the same time. Miracle Playoff Tickets Now On Sale The Fort Myers Miracle baseball team is headed to post-season play for the first time since 2009, and playoff tickets are now on sale. By virtue of winning the South Division Championship of the Florida State League in the seasons first half, the Miracle will host Game Two and Game Three, if necessary, in the first round of the three-game playoffs that begin on September 3. Tickets are available at the Miracle offices on the third floor of Hammond Stadium. With just 15 games remaining in the seasons second half, the Miracle begin a seven-game homestand starting tonight, Friday. The first four games are against Charlotte and the final three against St. Lucie. Miquel Sano Bryon Buxton Cycling Safety Notes ALWAYS WEAR A BICYCLE HELMET Our Shared Use Paths intersect with many roads and driveways; the risk of a crash is always present. So lets be prepared and always, no matter how short the trip, wear an approved bicycle helmet. Florida law requires helmet use for children under sixteen, but adults should set a good example and wear a helmet whenever using the Paths. Protect your head! SANIBEL BICYCLE CLUB
7B ISLAND SUN AUGUST 23, 2013 From page 1BSanibel Sea School New Buildingmovies in the evening or other activities open to the public. Among the other ideas in the future at the school is an on-site, working aquaponics system, which will collect stormwater runoff. That water will then be used to raise tilapia, which the school plans to sell locally and/or serve on-site; construction of a bicycle rest stop with sheltered seating, water and air; gopher tortoise habitat management and restoration, with educational signage; and creation of a historic eastern end tour of the island, which would incorporate high-tech devices (i.e., Facebook and Instagram). Plans also call for the original Sanibel Sea School building to be raised, and rotated towards Periwinkle Way. The architectural design will blend old Florida aesthetics with modern technology. Dr. Neill explained that it will be in concert with the prevailing architecture of Sanibel, however, much of the materials that will be used for the project will be recycled or repurposed. We are creating a place where people will want to come, relax and enjoy the intellectual pursuits and rewards of the environment and sustainable living, said Dr. Neill. The buildings will meet or exceed codes of sustainability and serve as an example of how technology can be used to promote sustainable, healthy, vibrant communities. In addition, solar power will be used to create a campus that has a net-zero carbon footprint. The school will seek as many partnerships as possible for this redevelopment project. Some of the potential partners could be the City of Sanibel, Selovita, Aquaponics, Inc., Las Tiendas Homeowner Association, Sanibel Bicycle Club, Harlem Heights Foundation and the Sanibel Historical Society. Weve been working closely with the citys planning department theyve been very cooperative, added Dr. Neill, who hoped to submit the schools final application by November. Everything weve heard from them has been positive. But, for now, the only change is the color of the building. However, even that is an appropriately selected shade of ocean blue.We are creating a redevelopment project that is unique on Sanibel, added Dr. Neill. It is a project that embraces education, commerce, environmental harmony and the local community. We believe it will serve as the model by which the future of environmentally-minded communities will embrace the benefits of healthy lifestyles promoted by the Sanibel Plan. 472-HOME (4663) 888-603-0603 Gumbo Limbo 3 bedroom w/new kitchen $499K 2242 Periwinkle Way Suite 3 in Sanibel Square Real estate blog posted Fridays at SanibelSusan.wordpress.com The SanibelSusan Team (left to right) Susan Andrews, Realtor Broker; David Anderson, Realtor Lisa Murty, Realtor Elise Carnes, Licensed Assistant & Notary Near-beach cozy cottage with this pool $449K Bay-front 2 bedroom at Mariner Pointe $549K Your choice of two 2-bedroom units in the bldg at Loggerhead Cay, 2nd or 3rd floor, both $599.9K Spanish Cay 2nd floor 1 bedroom $264K Remodeled club suite at Sundial $349.9K 2nd floor 2 bedroom at Island Beach Club $474K Loggerhead Cay with this straight view to gulf $499K Tropical views to beach at Pointe Santo $649.9K Ground-floor walk-out at Sandalfoot $699K Sanibel Residential Lots Limpet Dr direct-access canal-front lot w/ patio dock in Shell Harbor $885K Umbrella Pool Rd over 1/2 acre on cul-de-sac near Bowmans Beach $399K Farm Trail nearly 1/3 acre in Island Woods w/community amenities $224K Buck Key Rd build with water view near beach in Sanibel Bayous $199.9K Dimmick Dr extra wide lot, borders preserved land $199.9K Sand Castle Rd single home lot in The Dunes golf & tennis community $199K SanibelSusan.com Bay-front 2 bedroom at Mariner Pointe $424K Mariner Pointe 3 bedroom with bay view $599.9K Our email address is email@example.com

11B ISLAND SUN AUGUST 23, 2013 Captiva Triathlon: Family, Fitness And Funding HungerThe Galloway Captiva Tri, Southwest Floridas premier sprint triathlon, helps athletes and their families have a three-F weekend: Family, Fun and Fitness. However, now that both the adult and kids races are sold out with waiting lists, that means the tri will be able to donate to its charity, Community Cooperative Ministries Inc. (CCMI), for the fourth and fifth F: Food and Funding. According to CCMI CEO Tracey Galloway, CCMIs Backpack and School Pantry Program provides emergency food for Lee County school children and their families who are food insecure and chronically hungry. Just $100 per child per school year provides food to keep these children and families fed. The proceeds from the Captiva Tri will effectively fund a school for the year. What a great feeling for the participants and sponsors of this event to know that in addition to the sport and camaraderie of the weekend, they are ensuring that children in our very own community will not have to go to school hungry. Another reason the Galloway Captiva Tri is able to fund this program is the generosity of its sponsors. We are lucky here in Southwest Florida that we have companies that not only have great products, but who want to do great things for the community, said Ken Gooderham, one of the race directors. Their support for this race means more money can be donated to CCMI; $6,500 was donated the first year and $15,000 the second, so in the races third year we hope to do even better the same goal as all the tri athletes. One of those great companies that supports healthy food, healthy activity and the community is Jasons Deli, the tris food sponsor. Jasons Deli is committed to the work CCMI does in our community. The Captiva Tri is the perfect opportunity to share our healthy food, healthy lifestyle allowing us to align our food focus where are hearts are, said Diana Willis, owner of Jasons Deli.

13B ISLAND SUN AUGUST 23, 2013S chool S martby S helley M. G reggs, NCSPDear Shelley, I am an aide at an elementary school and I love the kids but I dont like all the drama at recess. I try to get the kids to use the school rules to help resolve their issues when they have their meltdowns but they dont seem to want to use the school plan. I dread facing all those playground arguments again this school year. Mary B., Cape Coral, Florida Mary, Its great to hear that your school has a specific plan to help students resolve their conflicts but playground clashes will always be a part of life. However, I can understand your dread at having to face these conflicts on a daily basis. While schools are very proficient at tackling academic problems, the type of problem you are describing is more related to emotional development that is often not well addressed at school. When children are involved in conflict situations and are flooded with strong emotions, its crucial that these feelings are acknowledged and validated. Neuroscientist Daniel Seigel, MD, author of The Whole-Brain Child, says that when children are flooded with emotions, it does not allow them to access the problem solving part of their brain. He says that children (and adults) need to work through their emotions first before they can fully access their logical thinking skills. He relates this to the two hemispheres of our brain, where the right side is dominant in creativity, non-verbal communication, emotion and creative expression, and the left hemisphere tends to dominate linear, literal and logical thinking. Dr. Seigel emphasizes that no task, action or thinking process is conducted only in one hemisphere, each hemisphere has an expertise, or a type of processing which it dominates and, of course, these hemispheres are connected through a pathway of nerves. Dr. Seigel suggests using a strategy that he calls connect and redirect. One can connect to the student in need by acknowledging and empathizing with the students feelings and with the situation. A simple statement is all that is needed here. Something like, its hard to be a good friend or its hard to argue with friends, would be appropriate. An empathetic statement will allow the student to feel that they have been heard and the calming process will begin. After the student has calmed down (which might take a while) and is no longer overwhelmed by emotions is the time to re-direct the child to their logical thinking side and begin the problem solving discussion. Dr. Seigel suggests that when a child is flooded with emotions such as a playground struggle, the right brain takes over, leaving little chance for the left brain continued on page 16B From page 10BLive On The Islandsand top s; Wednesday, Trevor with contemporary top s and reggae; Thursday, Malibu Duo, contemporary, reggae and dance; Sunday, Jamaica Dave & Co., reggae and dance.

Now that I caught your attention with a line from one of my all-time favorite cartoon episodes, I will now bore you to death with the subject of routine maintenance. There is nothing more stimulating then the subject of routine maintenance then perhaps the subject of golf course fertilizer (sorry to all my friends up at The Sanctuary). But here goes... Routine maintenance should be per formed on any type of mechanical device that runs on a regular basis, ie.. cars, boats and, yes, your air conditioning. An a/c system that receives regular maintenance last longer, runs more efficiently and experience less break downs. One side note: there is a misconception that just because a system is new, it does not need regular maintenance. This is not a good idea; a new system needs to be looked after just like an older system. You wouldnt dream of not maintaining that new car of yours, would you? Now that we have discussed the why, lets talk about the when. A system should be checked every six months. It is often asked if that is overkill; the answer is no. I have four kids to feed and put through college, so I need the work. (Only kidding.) A lot of bad things can occur in a six month period between visits. This is where you ask, Bryan, what can happen in the six months between visits? Thanks, I was hoping you would ask. One of the major functions of youre a/c system is to dehumidify the conditioned space, the moisture that is removed from your home is taking outside via a 3/4inch pipe. This pipe should be cleaned on a regular basis or it can back up and cause it to rain in your living room. Also, the refrigerant should be checked to make sure you havent lost any gas. The duct work also needs to be checked, it could be falling apart due to age or worse yet you may have had some uninvited guest in your attic that have left you with holes in your duct work. The system is checked for overall cleanliness. And finally, the service technician can give you an idea of how the overall health of your system is. This can be very valuable if you know in advance that there is a major purchase in your future. Like a new a/c system. These are only a few of the many tasks performed by our highly trained technician. I hope this has been helpful. Thanks for reading, and sorry if I lured you in under false pretense.

Baileys Helps Throw FISH A LifelineIn an effort to help FISH of Sanibel, Inc. restock its Food Pantry with much needed supplies, Baileys General Store on Sanibel is holding a Throw FISH A Lifeline campaign in the store. Upon entering the store, customers who come to Baileys are given a coupon that gives them the option of adding $10 to their grocery list at checkout. At the end of the campaign, Richard Johnson, Baileys General Manager, will use the funds to purchase bulk groceries most needed for the food pantry at wholesale prices, helping FISH get more value for their donations. Baileys General Store has been a great friend and neighbor to our organization, offering much needed support over many years, said Maggi Feiner, FISH Executive Director. We are very grateful to the Bailey family for organizing this campaign, and we extend our sincere gratitude for their help. While the FISH Food Pantry receives the support of many islanders throughout the year, some food items are in high demand and are harder to keep in stock. A partner ship with Baileys will allow FISH to directly request the specific items needed in the pantry at the time of ordering. Please stop by Baileys and throw FISH a lifeline!

16B ISLAND SUN AUGUST 23, 2013 Superior InteriorsT he Wonder Of Mother N ature by Marcia FeeneyOne of todays hottest design trends is a return to nature. From fabrics to wall cover ings to accessories, our living spaces can easily reflect an embrace of Mother Nature. Why the growing interest in bringing a little bit of the outdoors inside? First, we long for peace and quiet at home. As our lives outside our homes become more harried and stressful, we are turning to our homes as retreats, and decorating them with furnishings and accessories we find soothing and comfortable. Secondly, our increased awareness of the environment and the quest to preserve its beauty has led to a desire to bring bits of it home. Heres a look at several areas of interior design that can get you back to nature: Fabrics Bouquets of colorful botanicals with flower, leaf and vine prints are perennial favorites. Imagine relaxing in a lush garden where flowers flourish all around you soft violets, delicate lilies of the valley, bold hydrangeas and stately red tulips. Fun, faux animal prints remain popular; even zebra stripes and leopard spots will lend an air of the exotic to any room. Colors From gorgeous garden shades to the rich fruit tones of deep raspberries, soft banana yellows, plums and strawberries. Even natures neutrals are also playing their important role wheat brown, amber waves of grain, the creamy-whites of magnolia blossoms and terra cotta corals all highlighted by an amazing azure blue sky. All these colors are uplifted by natures green, the color that will dominate our interior decorating in this decade, from deep, leafy green to teal, to greens with a yellow tint. Furnishings Todays worn weathered wood styles, featuring more of a matte finish with lighter wood tones, are even appearing on contemporary furnishings. Sofas and chairs are being covered in natural cotton and sport trims of raffia and hemp. Wicker and rattan furniture mixed with warm wood tones lend themselves to more of a casual style of decorating. Wall Coverings Like fabrics, florals and botanicals are blooming in their popularity. Dont worry about too much pattern; these blooming designs look great when mixed with stripes, checks or even plaids. Window Treatments Floral print drapery fabrics designed in a traditional swag and jabot treatment will definitely give any room a perennial touch. And by coordinating your blooming window treatments with furniture, bedding even your linens, youll find yourself surrounded by Mother Natures beauty. Our love of Earth and the resurgence to preserve it, influences us to bring natures colors into our homes and our everyday lives. And what better way to start soothing the soul than in your own home. Relax! Enjoy! You deserve it! Marcia Feeney is an interior designer on Sanibel/Captiva Islands. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. From page 13BSchool Smartto do its logical work. He suggests that it is only when the child has calmed down that he/she has access to the left-brain and is able to utilize logic and problem solving. He says that by connecting empathetically with the right brain and later redirecting to the left, integration of both sides of the brain occurs, training the neuropathways to do this independently as the child matures. We can all remember experiencing a situation of being upset and flooded with emotions and then having a good friend or relative try to explain the situation logically. It probably didnt work for you then and it doesnt work for kids now. Hopefully, understanding why we need to acknowledge emotions first before proceeding to the problem solving will help reduce some of the issues you face on the playground.

Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAML(03-12)Have you ever wanted to bury your head in the sand as your spouse, significant other or child is just moaning non-stop that they dont want to take out the trash, pick up their clothes or put the toothpaste away? Do you feel like you are absorbing their negativity? Or do you go to a party and start listening to everyones stuff and feel like you will burst, wondering why you even bothered to come? Do you feel like you are easily influenced by others views, stuffing your own? If any of these apply, then there is benefit in working with central meridian, the meridian that is used in self-hypnosis and makes us most susceptible to influences good or bad from others. But there is hope. You can shut out others and maintain your own integrity energetically. You can turn off that radio antenna to stop drawing others into you if you dont want their energies. In fact, you have already learned the technique in the Zip-up and Hook-up, both part of the 5 Minute Routine. Remember how easy they are? You were tracing your central meridian. As a reminder, view the August 9 and 16 columns, since the basics of tracing are set forth. Central meridians high tide is midnight. We always begin by tracing central and governing meridians before starting to trace the other meridians. The meridian to use when starting to trace will be the one whose high tide is at that time of day. To Tracing All Meridians Although it is best to trace all your meridians as one continuous flow, you may want to trace Central if you need more clarity, need a boost of confidence, need to protect yourself from negative energies around you or you are feeling vulnerable to the energy of others. Center Myself In Spirit Remembering that matter follows energy, stating a positive thought shifts the energy just by the intention-this is the metaphysical fabric of life! We are all part of that pure fabric of existence so reap its benefits. ning point of Central meridian is at the perineum, the base of the pelvic bone and the end point is in the inside of your mouth right behind your bottom lip. To trace central, place both hands on or slightly above your pubic bone and bring them straight up the middle front of your body to the bottom lip. Thats it. You just traced central. Refer to prior articles to benefit from the Zip-up or Hook-up. Backwards Remember that if there is too much energy in a meridian, you may want to trace it backwards and see if that makes you feel better. If it does, then trace it backwards three times, but never trace the heart backwards. To flush a meridian, as if you are de-clogging a pipe, trace the meridian once backwards to loosen the sludge and then trace the meridian forward three times. Flushing really helps reset the meridians balance. Generally with central meridian, you will not be tracing it backwards since most of us want to keep our core strong by closing and strengthening central and governing meridians. You are set. Keep this column as a reminder of how to trace Central while you learn the next 13 meridians over the next several months. Have fun with your energy! Next weeks topic is Cover Your Back Trace Governing Meridian. If you have a questions for Karen, email her at ksemmelmanenergy@ gmail.com. Learn more at www.semmelmanenergy.com. EEM does not diagnose or cure illness, but working with subtle energies of the body has been shown to help many conditions.

They make me do crazy things like sleepwalk, eat and wake up family members in the middle of the night just to chat. What are natural options? AA, Superior, Colorado It depends on what kind of insomniac you are. About one fifth of Americans experience insomnia every night. Women versus men, and seniors versus younger folks tend to have sleep disturbances. I wrote an entire chapter about insomnia and natural remedies in my first book, The 24-Hour Pharmacist. Heres a summary: Creepy Crawlers You fall asleep just fine, but somewhere around 3 a.m., you wake up and cant get back to sleep. You consider putting away dishes, folding laundry or vacuuming. Dont! Make enough noise at that hour and your spouse will likely duct tape you to the bed post. For Creepy Crawlers, I recommend Melatonin. It increases the number of hours that you sleep. You may be wondering if its okay with Ambien, Xanax other medications. It should be fine since we make melatonin in our brains anyway, some people just run short. Ive read research that suggests it might dampen your mood slightly, however, it is terrific for people who have autoimmune disorders. Ask your physician if its right for you. Antenna Heads You climb into bed at a reasonable hour, but your brain becomes an antenna for every thought on the planet. Some of you go into rewind mode thinking about the day and what you should have done, should have said, and needed to accomplish but didnt! When youre fully maddened and start cursing the sheep, you drift off at 2 in the morning! Antenna heads will do well with a relaxing herb about an hour before for bed, such as chamomile and lavender tea. Take two teaspoonfuls of dried chamomile herb, and one half teaspoon dried lavender and steep that for two to three minutes, sweeten if necessary and enjoy. These herbs will settle your brain down, and calm a nervous stomach. They are also available as liquid herbal extracts. Bed Bugger You fall asleep fine, even staying asleep through the night, but you thrash or wake up a lot; maybe you have bizarre dreams. The hallmark is fitful sleep. Bed buggers do extremely well on the couch (just kidding). My husband used to be a bed bugger, and steal the sheets in one roll over but luckily, hes fine now. Bed buggers respond to supplements that relax the central nervous system, for example, magnesium, a natural chill pill and muscle relaxant. Two other great choices are glycine and Chinese skullcap. Please look in your medicine cabinet. Thyroid medicine, blood pressure drugs, cold medicine and asthma inhalers are stimulating, so take them earlier in the day. If youre craving more information and remedies for sleep, sign up for free newsletter (at my website) and Ill send you more choices to help you fall asleep.

(239) 472-3688Youll Appreciate the Difference G ot A Problem? D r. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: I am faced with many changes in my life now and I find myself resisting them. Can you give me some advice on how to learn to accept change?A: The ultimate goal of change is to recognize that change within the world comes from change within the individual. Our planet is facing many challenges: diminishment of resources, pollution and overpopulation, just to name a few. We all individually and collectively need to realize that in some way we contribute to the planets growing problems. If we do not find long-term solutions, quality of human life will certainly diminish. If we all work together, we will find and implement these long-term solutions so our children and grandchildren and all future generations can live in harmony with their environment. Each one of us can begin today to educate ourselves on all the ways we can help, such as recycling, using products that do not pollute the environment, growing food, using fuel-efficient vehicles, and buying products that last. We can be the answer instead of the problem. As we become proactive, we will live with less stress and more joy. When we accept and embrace the challenge of change without resistance, helping our neighbor will be the norm. We will use the challenge of change to benefit all humanity. Its when we can begin to become aware of the change we can make from within that we will live with less stress and more joy. It is when we embrace and accept the challenge of change freely, without resistance, that our life will come alive. We will feel more whole and complete, perhaps experiencing an energy shift that may take our lives to a whole new level. When we can live in the world without demanding it fill our every need, we will have found a new way of living in it.When we realize it is not the responsibility of others to make us happy, we will have reached the level of awareness that true happiness comes from within. When we feel unconditional love and compassion for all creation, we walk on the path to enlightenment. Beyonc Is L ending Her Voice For G oodBeyonc Knowles-Carter will lend her voice to help raise awareness about Goodwills mission of transforming lives through the power of work. The announcement came just as Beyonc got ready to kick off The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour. Goodwill helps people get back to work by providing education, job training and placement. I wanted to team up with an organization that puts people first and works every day to help them improve and re-establish their lives, said Beyonc. Beyonc is encouraging fans to support Goodwill by promoting donation drives at her North American concerts that began on June 28 in Los Angeles. Goodwill is hosting mobile donation center onsite at 28 tour venues in 24 North American cities, collecting clothing, electronics and small household goods. The revenue from the sale of these donations will directly benefit local Goodwill agencies in their work to help people with disabilities and disadvantages, and anyone facing challenges to finding employment. The Goodwill Southwest Florida area is not a tour stop, but the public can still donate online at www.goodwill.org and establish the funds for Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida. Beyonc is also helping build awareness of Goodwills mission through in-concert education, social media and online ticket auctions. Global charity auction site www.charitybuzz.com will auction special ticket packages for The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, with the revenue benefitting Goodwill. Every 38 seconds of every business day, a person served by Goodwill is placed in employment. Goodwill promotes independence and dignity for people who need support to provide for themselves and their families. When people donate to their local Goodwill, they play a vital role in fulfilling this mission. Financial donations and the revenue generated from the sale of used goods helps to sustain skills training, career placement services and job opportunities, and support services such as career counseling, access to free tax preparation and financial coaching. Members of the public can do their part to support Beyoncs efforts by giving goods, giving financially, or giving their voice to increase awareness of Goodwills mission of transforming lives through the power of work. Beyonc is also supporting and advocating on behalf of other local charitable agencies involved in job creation and employment services during the overseas portion of her tour, to bring to light the importance of economic independence and an increased quality of life for those in need around the globe. We face a jobs crisis in the U.S. and around the world that threatens the future and the potential of our families and communities. Through Beyoncs platform, we will be able to increase knowledge of the positive impact Goodwill has on communities, the environment and the lives of the millions of people we serve each year through education and skills training, many of whom have been unemployed or underemployed for long periods of time, said Jim Gibbons, president and CEO of Goodwill Industries International.

19B ISLAND SUN AUGUST 23, 2013 Mom And Me by Lizzie 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 retired from the cold north to the warmth of the south. There are thousands of people just like us living in this area.It is very disturbing to read in the newspaper complaints from the younger people about our driving and what a menace we are on the roads. I am sorry that they feel this way, but we who are driving have passed the required licensing procedure. What is disturbing to us is why we should have to pay school taxes for your children when our children are long gone and we dont benefit from the schools. Have you ever thought that maybe you have jobs because of our needs? What do you think, Lizzie and Pryce? Seymour Dear Seymour, Young people have a very valid complaint about some older citizens driving. I am amazed at how some seniors were able to pass the licensing procedure. Older people hate to give up their wheels and independence. Stricter tests, I personally think, should be enforced. However, taxes for schools is a different matter. Our new longevity is directly related to more educated people. Dentists, doctors, engineers, pharmacists and therapists have all made their contribution, and they all got their start in grade school. Each generation has their own physical and emotional needs. Try if you can to show an example of a person aging with dignity and grace. Lizzie Dear Seymour, Who cares what the younger generation is saying about your driving. Everyone has something or someone to complain about. Let the comments go in one car door and out the other. I absolutely do not agree with agebased driving tests. I think it is discriminatory. Also, before there is a wholesale retraction of older individuals driving privilege, there needs to be more thought into how dependent individuals will become, not being able to go to the grocery store, the drug store or for their appointments. Pryce Lizzie and Pryces email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
