And, in doing so, he goes down in history as the first person from the Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD) to be a Game Changer in a new partnership with the Fort Myers Miracle baseball team. Ben is the first one to do this and we hope to continue to do it into the future, said Steve Gliner, Miracle president. Introduced to the Hammond Stadium crowd over the loudspeaker as an honorary guest, Miller was accompanied by his parents, Sanibel residents Jerry and Sharon Miller. Benjamin is an APD Game Changer participant, but in many ways he is a game changer himself. Benjamin has a very rare disorder that causes vision and hearing loss, but this has not stopped or slowed him down one bit, said the announcer. Not only did Miller get to toss the first ball thrown at the Miracles 7-1 victory over the Palm Beach Cardinals on August 28, but he also got to invite a dozen friends to share the owners suite on the top floor of Hammond Stadium. The Miracle is the Minnesota Twins Class A minors team. With the help of his loving family, and his great outlook on life, Miller not only lives independently in CHR housing on Sanibel but also work part time at Goodwill on the island. He participates in the Community Companion Program, volunteers in Lions Club service projects, and also participate in extracurricular activities such as the Special Olympics. He also attends the Sanibel Community Church regularly and is the honorary continued on page 10 With his father/coach Jerry Miller by his side, Benjamin Miller winds up for the first pitch at the Fort Myers Miracle/Palm Beach Cardinals game at Hammond Stadium on August 28Ding Darling Days Calendar Every day from October 20 through October 26 brings themed days filled with favorite, classic Ding Darling Days activities plus new, creative ways to explore Sanibel Islands JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge and learn more about the environment.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 6, 20132 Historical Village Beneficiary Of DonationOn August 28, the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village became the proud owners of a grapefruit tree and a tangerine tree, thanks to the generosity of RS Walsh Landscaping. We have two tangerine trees in our Heritage Garden already, but they are old and the fruit they produce, when they produce fruit is very bitter, said Karl Rodman, a member of the museums board of directors and caretaker of the garden. In the past, CROW has been able to use these bitter tangerines to help feed the animals theyre nursing back to health. RS Walsh supervisor Sal Montalvo arrived with the trees along with workers Mario Cristobal and Marby Garcia. Cristobal and Garcia took on the backbreaking work of digging the holes for the 30-gallon trees. They worked so well together and had those huge holes dug in no time, said museum manager Emilie Alfino. Then when the trees were put in place, it was easy to visualize the garden with four beautiful fruit trees, for even our old tangerine trees are still very pretty and sometimes bear fruit. Our new trees will also provide some much-needed shade for the garden. RS Walsh staff went the extra mile, too. They fed the newly planted trees and added mulch with a well for watering, so important for new plantings.

The project, a 2.6-mile bridge located along an eastern section of the Tamiami Trail, will replace the existing roadway which has blocked flow to the south since constructed in 1928. For years, this project has been planned but never funded or implemented. This $90 million investment will be a huge step forward in our efforts to restore water quality throughout South Florida, said Governor Scott. Every drop of water that we can send south and keep out of the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie Estuaries is a win for Florida families. My message to families being impacted is that we will not give up on you. We are putting for ward strategies each and every day to address the water quality issues that are impacting families in our state. Additionally, the governor spent time hearing from local officials on the need to continue restoring the historic flow to the south and observing current water conditions firsthand. Governor Scotts response to this economic and environmental crisis has been swift, said Ruane following the meeting. We should not squander this oppor tunity to all work together east coast and west coast, inland agricultural interests and beaches communities, federal, state and local officials, environmentalists and business owners, to move plans long on the drawing boards into reality. The total cost of 2.6 miles of bridging is estimated to be $180 million. The state of Florida will make a commitment to match federal funds for this project, up to $30 million per year over three years, or $90 million total from the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) work plan. One of the most critical components of Everglades restoration is increasing water flow under Tamiami Trail into Everglades NN ational Park. The ultimate completion of the project will pr ovide numerous benefit to the region, including: from the northern part of the system, including Lake Okeechobee, to the south Sanibel Mayor Kevin Ruane (right) and State Senator Lizbeth Benacquisto greeting Governor Rick Scott at the banks of the Caloosahatchee River on August 28 A map shows where along the eastern portion of the Tamiami Trail the new 2.6-mile bridge will be constructed and water flows to the south will be improved

7 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 6, 2013 water depths and flooding durations that are critical to the survival of many fish and wildlife species flexibility to deal with regional and system wide flood protection in addressing Lake Okeechobee seasonal high water levels I want to applaud Governor Scott for focusing on the things that are important to Southwest Floridians, said Senator Lizbeth Benacquisto, a resident of Fort Myers. This commitment is a great step towards improving the water issues that face the Caloosahatchee River and the state as a whole. By raising Tamiami Trail, we will be able to remove the constraints on water that is moving south. The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) is taking emergency action to store excess water on public and private lands and this fall, the SFWMD will begin work on a $16 million project at Lake Hicpochee to help control flows into the Caloosahatchee. SFWMD have fully funded a $16.5 million shallow reservoir and restoration project on Lake Hicpochee that will capture and store water out in the C-43 canal, Benacquisto added. These combined efforts will allow more water to be captured and flow to the south, rather than to the Caloosahatchee, which we have seen is problematic for our estuary and our way of life. The current setup of the Tamiami Trail inhibits water flow, which forces more stormwater runoff to drain from Lake Okeechobee into the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie estuaries, instead of flowing south through the Everglades. By constructing an additional bridge, more water will be able to flow naturally through the Everglades, which will keep nutrient rich water out of the estuaries. Excessive rainfalls this summer, combined with freshwater runoffs from Lake Okeechobee, have produced discolored plumes in local waters off the coast of Sanibel, which have resulted in the citys call to action in recent weeks. In addition, citizens staged a Save the Bay rally on demonstrating their concerns for the environmental and economic impacts the freshwater runoffs have caused. Representative Matt Caldwell, chair of the Lee County Delegation, added, Businesses across our region have experienced the harmful effects of the high nutrient waters of Lake Okeechobee. Unless we take drastic steps forward, communities year-after-year will continue to be impacted during the rainy seasons. Thats why todays announcement by Governor Scott is so important. Rebuild Or Relocate? Yes, Says Publicsubmitted by Ken and Kate Gooderham, ASBPA executive directorsRestore or retreat? Rebuild or relocate? These two ends of the disaster recovery spectrum have been at odds for decades, particularly along the coast. However, this debate has broader implications nationally, as communities facing chronic flood, fire or tornado recovery issues are also being scrutinized as to whether its wiser to rebuild or relocate in the face of repeated recoveries. Superstorm Sandy and the myriad methods of responding to it have focused this issue more starkly, both in terms of the scope and in looking at the differing approach two adjoining states have taken (though neither has wholehearted embraced either). made relocation the centerpiece of his states response, dedicating millions of dollars to a buyout program for properties whose owners have had enough. Conversely, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has publicly and repeatedly proclaimed his desire to rebuild the Jersey Shore bigger and better. Which approach wins in the court Research poll released in June puts rebuilding ahead of relocation in the quest for public support, but its overall poll moves beyond a simple this-or-that solution to something larger. The question was whether state governments should provide money to help residents rebuild in the same neighborhood or offer to buy destroyed homes so owners could move to a safer area. Those polled included a national sample plus an oversample in the areas hardest hit by Sandy (to increase the numbers polled to improve statistical validity). The results? Nationally, 65 percent supported rebuilding while 53 percent the Sandy survivors, 79 percent favored rebuilding and 59 percent backed relocation, New Jersey residents were evenly split (70 percent for rebuilding and 68 percent for relocating), while New Yorkers more strongly supported rebuilding (80 percent) over relocating (61 percent). Beyond the basic numbers, there are a couple of things at play in these responses: either-or choice but as a which do you support, both options win support from a majority of respondents. Thats a message that people expect their state government to do something, recognizing that state government has a stake and a responsibility in recovery efforts, which is an important confirmation of a longter policy is black or white, but clearly the people who have to live through the outcome see plenty of shades of gray. indicate that people expect someone to lend them a hand to recover after disasters strikes not just government, but local agencies, relief organizations and (most of all) family and friends. Thats not only a driving force in formulating both policy and response, but is clearly a driving force in the reciprocity reflex where continued on page 8 Join SCCF For The Annual International Coastal Cleanup O Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation invites you to participate in an international volunteer effort to rid our coastlines and waterways of many as 600,000 volunteers worldwide remove millions of pounds of coastal trash that can hurt local economies, injure and kill marine wildlife, and choke the ocean environment.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 6, 20138 From page 7Rebuild Or Relocate?we help others in their times of need in expectation theyll do the same when were in the eye of the disaster. Compassionate, true, but common-sensical as well. state response, not the federal which we as a nation consider to be vital in times of disaster. However, when asked who they could rely on for help, Washington was at the bottom of the list (just below state governments) with first responders, family/friends and relief agencies sitting on top. Whether thats a sign that all disasters (like politics) are local or a reflection of the current opinion of the federal government is unclear; more clear is the tacit belief that, in disaster response, the first on the scene carry the most weight. Whether this poll will find any traction in discussions about government policy in post-disaster response or not, it certainly should put the lie to those who say the best response is to do nothing. That, clearly, is not what people facing down a disaster want or expect. Decisions about what post storm recovery initiatives will be chosen following a severe event should be well informed and made prior to the event. Cool-headed science-based choices that have long-term sustainability implications can best be made before the disaster, not the days and weeks following it.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 6, 201312 September Offers Anglers Best Of SWFLby Capt. Matt MitchellLabor Day marks the last busy weekend of the summer on the water for us. Now that its behind us, traffic on the local waterways will slow down drastically until the middle of October. September has always been my favorite month of the year to fish our waters as it simply offers local anglers the widest verity of the year along with the least boat pressure on the fish. If you like having all the best areas to fish all to yourself, then this is your month too. Most of my last really busy week for a while was spent targeting and catching redfish. With big high tides during the morning hours the bite was very consistent on redfish of all sizes. Some days were better than others, often finding one little mangrove shoreline that was loaded with redfish and catching then just every cast, then other days we had to work harder to catch our reds with only one or two coming out of a spot before we had to move on. There are lots of upper slot-sized fish out there along with many over the 27-inch max. Tail-hooked live pinfish and grunts flipped up under the trees was the bait of choice for these reds. Redfish were caught all over the sound though the majority of the ones I caught came while fishing the southern end, from Regla Island to the mouth of the river and into the very southern end of Matlacha Pass. Action was fast-paced and if you tried fishing a shoreline for more than five minutes without a bite, it was time to move on. Look for our redfishing only to get better and better from now until November. Along with the redfish, many of our mangrove shorelines are also holding some very respectable mangrove snapper up to 15 inches. Smaller free-lined pinfish caught these tasty treats throughout the area. Feeding birds thoughout the southern sound made for fast and furious fishing for anglers who just wanted to stay busy with plenty of action. Schools of hungry jacks, Spanish mackerel and ladyfish are feeding on small white baits and are an easy target for anglers just looking to bend a rod. Small white jigs and livebaits drew strikes every cast. Often these feeding fish would have some larger predators around them with tarpon even popping up in these bait pods during the calmer periods. My opening day of snook season was spent chasing redfish with long-time clients the Jolly family from Lake Placid. Both boys had snook hook-ups but we did not manage to land that keeper snook we were hoping for. Everyone caught redfish over the slot along with a few slotsized reds and one nice big flounder for the dinner table. The amount of boat traffic on the water over the holiday weekend was crazy with boats everywhere. Im very happy to see the holiday over and things getting back to being quiet on the water with very few boats and lots of fish to catch. This month is as good as it gets for anglers, so if you get the chance while things are slow for most people, get out and take advantage of it and bend a rod.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.

15 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 6, 2013 CROW Case Of The Week: Wildlife Daycareby Patricia MolloyStudents and a limited number of volunteers are working around the clock to feed the youngsters currently in the nurseries at CROW. It is critical that babies are fed every two hours. By the time volunteers finish a round of feedings, its time to start all over again. Right now, the raccoon (Procyon lotor) room contains a staggering 32 little bandits that chatter day and night. They are generally orphaned and are tube fed and/or bottle fed a milk supplement until they transition to solid food. The baby squirrel room, which also contains birds, is full of incubators to keep the youngsters warm and comfortable. Once the healthy squirrels are weened and can eat soaked monkey biscuits, vegetables and fruit, they will be transferred outside. CROW hopes to release them within three months of their arrivals. Sadly, baby animals are brought to the wildlife hospital by well-meaning citizens after discovering what they believe to be an abandoned nest. While it is easy to understand the desire to help a seemingly defenseless little creature, resist the urge. Instead of scooping-up a wild bird or mammal and rushing it to the clinic, stop and observe. As Dr. Heather noted, it is very likely that its mother is nearby and will return within 24 hours. If you find a baby that is in immanent danger of a predator attack while waiting for its mom to return, it may be acceptable to intervene. CROW suggests placing the little one in a faux nest (cardboard box or pet carrier), making sure that it is well ventilated, and attaching it to a nearby tree. If you have questions, contact the clinics call center and speak with one of its knowledgeable staff members, such as Gareth Johnson, a first responder in patient admissions. As skilled as the wildlife rehabilitators at CROW are, nothing can replace moms tender loving care. Use common sense before breaking up a happy, healthy home. If you love the islands diverse and exotic wildlife, please donate your time during this critical period. Four-hour shifts are available and training is provided. For more information, call the volunteer coordinator at 472-3644 ext. 229 or go to CROWs website to download an application.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 6, 201316 An Audubon Florida Special PlaceCorkscrew Swamp Sanctuarysubmitted by Allyson WebbThe term sanctuary was originally used to reference buildings set apart for worship, but through time, the word has come to encompass places of safety, protection and peace. It is this third word, peace, that springs to mind when I think of Audubons Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. A sense of calm infused me the first time I walked around the 2.25-mile-long boardwalk through the wondrous variety of habitats. But it was when I reached the magnificent old growth bald cypress that I felt... FOUND. It was then that I knew I would strive to maintain this wondrous place, first as a volunteer and now as a resource manager. During the 1940s into the 1950s, old growth bald cypress forests were being logged at an alarming rate, largely to help Europe rebuild after World War II. These behemoth trees, relatives of the famous redwoods, can grow to heights of 100 to Alligator in the middle of foraging wood storks 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.

150 feet and gain diameters of six feet! Some of the trees that can be seen from the boardwalk are 500 years old. National Audubon was already protecting birds that roosted in Corkscrew Swamp including wood storks, great egrets and other wading birds. Locals afraid of losing this natural heritage started a campaign to save the swamp. Working with National Audubon Society and other organizations, the swamp was saved. Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary became a reality in 1954. Initially, this treasure spanned over 5,680 acres, including the largest stand of virgin bald cypress forest at about 700 acres. Today, Corkscrew has grown to include approximately 13,000 acres at the heart of the Corkscrew Watershed. Wetlands are the lifeblood of Southwest Florida, and the protection Corkscrew gives allows our aquifers to recharge for clean drinking water, offers surrounding areas natural flood protection, and purifies the waters. All of these things are essential to people and animals in the area. The neighborhood around the swamp has seen many changes through the years. Roads have been built; wetlands were drained and turned into developments. Human encroachment on our natural areas continues. But Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary stands amidst this development as an island oasis not only for native plants and animals but for the people of our community. It does not, however, stand apart. Aldo Leopold once wrote: Conservation is a state of harmony between men and land. By land is meant all of the things on, over, or in the earth. Harmony with land is like harmony with a friend; you cannot cherish his right hand and chop off his left. That is to say, you cannot love game and hate predators; you cannot conserve the waters and waste the ranges; you cannot build the forest and mine the farm. The land is one organism. Its parts, like our own parts, compete with each other and co-operate with each other. The competitions are as much a part of the inner workings as the co-operations. You can regulate them cautiously but not abolish them. Through community interaction and education, Corkscrew works with people to conserve our natural heritage for all. Initially, I sought a place to bury my sorrows and grief as my mother fought cancer, but instead I found a place of renewal, healing, peace and the daily celebration of life a true sanctuary.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 6, 201318 Exhibit Surfaces At The Alliance For The ArtsSince June, 12 large surreal images encased in steel-framed Plexiglas have been attached to a World War II era U.S. Coast Guard Cutter sunk off the coast of Sanibel. The Mohawk was scuttled there in 2012 to serve as an artificial reef, beneficial to sea life and attractive to divers. This temporary art gallery, created by Austrian photographer Andreas Franke, features photographs he took of the sunken ship, combined with images of actors dressed in 1940s costumes. The Sinking World exhibition has only been available to divers, but that will change on Friday, October 4 when it will be unveiled at the Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers during an opening reception from 5 to 7:30 p.m. This is Frankes second such exhibition in the United States. He also created images for the 1950s era USS Vandenberg about a mile offshore from Key West. He will be on hand at the opening reception, and will host a Gallery Walk on Saturday, October 5 at 10 a.m., during which hell answer questions about his process and inspiration. The Sinking World exhibition is on display in the Main Gallery from October 4 through October 28. Artwork by Beverly Taht is featured in the Member Gallery.

The chambers parking lot has recently undergone a significant eco-friendly transformation, thanks to the assistance of the City of Sanibel and a number of local expert contractors. The chamber receives on average 180,000 visitors to the Visitor Center each year. The lot, previously unpaved and containing many pot holes, had a sandy and gritty surface that was a cause for some concern for many Sanibel and Captiva visitors. The parking lot, owned by the City of Sanibel and leased to the Chamber of Commerce, is now complete with semi-pervious pavers, are designed to ensure that the rain water flows to the back of the lot into two newly-created retention ponds. The surface of the lot is now smooth, made possible by the introduction of the environmentally-friendly, semi-pervious pavers and the subsequent native landscaping that had accompanied this project. The pavers not only look beautiful, but they are helping to direct the water in the parking lot and give visitors a good impression of our islands as they enter the Visitor Center. said Ric Base, President of the Chamber of Commerce. This major project would not have happened without the help staff in the Planning, Natural Resources and Engineering departments of the City of Sanibel, and we are very grateful for their help and advice throughout this process. We would also like to acknowledge the excellent job done by Gigi Designs, who were responsible for the preparation and laying of the pavers, to Mark Andersen of Benchmark Construction for his help and guidance and Edwin Herms of Island Home Services for plantings and sodding the retention area.

Community Players Holiding Open Casting Call For Comedy-MysteryBIG ARTS Community Players is holding open auditions for the comedymystery Art of Murder from 2 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, September 7 at Herb Strauss Theater, 2200 Periwinkle Way. All actors must bring a headshot and resume to the casting call, and be prepared to do a cold reading from the play script. Director Peter Stearns is seeking two female and two male actors. The characters are: 1. Jack (age late 30s to early 60s) an eccentric and ruggedly handsome artist. 2. Vincent (age 30s to 60s) a high-powered flamboyant art dealer. 3. Annie (age late 20 to 50s) Jacks beautiful wife, who is an artist. 4. Kate (age 20 to 70s) an immigrant maid from Ireland. Produced by BIG ARTS Community Players, Art of Murder features dedicated volunteers and performers, both onstage and backstage, and will be performed at the Herb Strauss Theater on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, from October 24 to November 9. All shows will be at 8 p.m. The 2000 Edgar Award Winner for Best Mystery Play, Art of Murder was written by Joe DiPietro. The dark comedy is set in a remote estate in the countryside of Connecticut as Jack awaits the arrival of Vincent. However, the visit is unusual because Jack believes he has been wronged and he is intending to kill Vincent. As Jack plans his evening, Annie calmly paints. 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. All rehearsals are from 7 to 9 p.m. and additional rehearsals will be scheduled as needed. The Community Players are also in need of volunteers to help with set-building, prop acquisition, stage managing and stage hands for theater productions. Audition and cast information is available on www.BIG ARTS.org. The Community Players provide local live theater, performed for the community, by the community. A non-profit 501(c) 3 organization, programming at BIG ARTS is made possible through the support of corporate sponsors, donors and more than 300 volunteers. Progressive Dinner On Sanibel ReturnsOn Friday, September 6, WineTrail and Beyond will host the second progressive dinner on Sanibel Island, combining the efforts of four restaurants and Amizetta Estate Winery, distributed by Big Crush. This event is part of ongoing marketing efforts to showcase the best restaurants in South Florida and the outstanding wine and food they serve. Other events put on by Entertainment Florida and WineTrail and Beyond include the Telluride Wine Festival every June in Telluride, Colorado. Look forward to 2014 in its 33rd year. The Fort Myers Burger and Bubbles Battle coming soon, Del Coronado Wine Festival and more. The evening begins at 6:30 p.m. at Sundial Beach Resort with delightful pass-arounds and a glass of Amizetta Sauvignon Blanc. Proceed on a complimentary bus that will take you on the progressive evening and will drop you back at the Sundial at the end of the evening (a taxi service is available to anyone who needs it). The next stop is Timbers for an appetizer paired with the perfect red wine. Afterwards, move on down the road to Cips for a fantastic entre and an exotic red Bordeaux blend. Then the finale at Starfish Grille for a grand dessert and a luscious cab reserve. At the progressive dinner, which is $84 per person, guests travel in sequence to the four restaurants, which are less than one mile apart. One wine is provided at each restaurant, which is paired with a different appetizer, entre and dessert, allowing guests to spend approximately 30 minutes at each location. This creates an informal atmosphere where diners can savor each pairing. Part of the adventure with the progressive dinner is to give guests the opportunity to socialize with each other and learn about each location, how great they are and try something new. Seating is very limited and will sell out early. Call Entertainment Florida at 2651948 for tickets or more information. Share your community news with us.

L imited Harvest For S nook S tarted On S eptember 1The recreational harvest season for Floridas premier game fish, snook, opened on September 1 statewide. Unique to the region, snook are one of the many reasons Florida is the Fishing Capital of the World. While the fishery is more than 90 percent catch-and-release, the FWC encourages anglers to use moderation when determining whether or not to take a snook home. Gulf snook populations were negatively impacted by a 2010 cold kill. Gulf snook numbers currently exceed FWCs management goals but are still rebuilding to pre-cold-kill levels, which is one of the reasons why it is important to handle fish with care in this region and use moderation when determining whether or not to harvest one. When releasing a snook, proper handling methods can help ensure the species abundance for anglers today and generations to come.

Regular season closures designed to help protect the species during vulnerable times such as cold weather begin on December 1 in Gulf state and federal waters, including Monroe County and Everglades National Park, and on December 15 in Atlantic state and federal waters, including Lake Okeechobee and the Kissimmee River. Management measures such as the one-fish-per-person, per-day bag limit, annual closed seasons and size limits will help continue rebuilding snook populations on both coasts. Minimum and maximum size limits help protect juvenile and older breeding fish within the population. In the Atlantic, snook must be not less than 28 inches and not more than 32 inches total length, which is measured from the most forward point of the head with the mouth closed to the farthest tip of the tail with the tail compressed or squeezed while the fish is lying on its side. In the Gulf, they must be not less than 28 inches and not more than 33 inches total length. A snook permit as well as a recreational saltwater license is required unless the angler is exempt from having a license. Snagging and spearing snook is prohibited. It is illegal to buy or sell snook. Anglers can report their catch on the Snook and Gamefish Foundations website at www.Snookfoundation.org by clicking on the Angler Action link. Researchers also ask anglers who harvest the fish to save their filleted carcasses and provide them to the FWC by dropping them off at a participating bait and tackle store. For the countyby-county list, go to www.MyFWC.com/Research and click on Saltwater, Saltwater Fish, Snook, and Snook Anglers Asked to Help with Research. These carcasses provide biological data, including the size, age, maturity and sex of the catch. This information is important to the FWC in completing stock assessments on species such as snook. If you see a snook fishery violation, call the Wildlife Alert Program at 888-404-FWCC (3922).

23 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 6, 2013 Plant SmartShrubby False Buttonweedby Gerri ReavesShrubby false buttonweed (Spermacoce verticillata) is a member of the madder family, the same family as the native buttonbush (Cephalanthus occidentalis). A native of the West Indies and Central and South America, the wildflower was first documented in Florida in the 1960s. Other common names include white-head broom and botn blanco, which means white button in Spanish. This tough perennial blooms all year long in South Florida. Commonly found along roadsides, in fields and disturbed sites, it grows eight to 16 inches high. Round flower clusters measure less than an inch across and are composed of very tiny four-petalled white flowers. The clusters appear at the ends of the stems and at nodes along the stalk. The clusters encircle the stem and appear at the leaf axils of the smaller (upper) pair of leaves. The effect resembles pom-poms on a stalk. The plant is naturalized in Florida, successfully self-cultivating in the wild. Fortunately, it is not invasive, nor is it toxic. And, despite its non-native status, it is beneficial, so think twice before pulling this weed or spraying it with herbicide. The flowers attract a variety of insects that feed on the plants nectar. In fact, scientists actually encourage the public to cultivate this wildflower and have given it another common name, southern larraflower. Why? Shrubby false buttonweed is one of two wildflowers that feed the short-tongued Larra bicolor wasps, which are generally non-aggressive but do attack the mole cricket, a pest that causes damage to turf grass. In the late 1980s, the University of Floridas Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences imported the wasp from Bolivia. The institutes Mole Cricket Research Program released them in Alachua County, hoping they would spread to other counties and states to provide free biological control of mole crickets. The program has had some success. Maintaining nonnative turf grass in South Florida exacts costs in money, time, and effort. For homeowners devoted to high-maintenance turf grass and reluctant to convert to low-maintenance groundcovers, its useful to know that a volunteer wildflower can help control pests and minimize pesticide application. Shrubby false buttonweed has medicinal uses too, including the treatment of skin conditions and diarrhea, and as a diuretic. Sources: Wildflowers of Florida by Jaret C.

My Stars FOR WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 9, 2013ARIES (March 21 to April 19) With your Arian charm quotient at an almost all-time high this week, plus all the facts to back you up, you just might win over the last doubters to your proposal. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You might be in line for that job change you applied for. But be advised that you could be called on to defend your qualifications against supporters of other applicants. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Creating a new approach to an old idea is one way to get beyond that workplace impasse. No such problems in your personal life, where things continue to flow smoothly. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Be more forthcoming about your feelings concerning a proposed change either in your workplace or in your personal life. Your opinions are valuable. Dont keep them hidden. LEO (July 23 to August 22) A changing situation in your life needs more patience than you appear to be willing to offer. Allowing it to develop at its own pace is the wisest course you can take at this time. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) With more stability in your life -on both personal and professional levels -this could be a good time to strengthen relationships with both friends and colleagues. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) People have always relied on your integrity not only to get the job done, but to get it done right. So dont be pressured by anyone into cutting corners to save time. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) While others might get rattled over unexpected changes, your ability to adapt calmly and competently helps you make a positive impression during a crucial period. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A changing environment might be daunting for some, but the adventurous Sagittarian takes it all in stride. A friend from the past could awaken some meaningful memories. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) With your self-assurance rising to full strength, the bold Goat should feel confident about opening up to new ventures as well as new relationships. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Reaching out to someone who has been unkind to you might not be easy. But in the long run it will prove to have been the right thing to do. A friend offers moral support. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Your keen insight once again helps you work through a seemingly insoluble problem in your workplace. The weekend offers a good chance to develop new relationships. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a knack for finding details that others would overlook. You would make a fine research scientist.

rfn BUSINESS REAL ESTATE CLASSIFIEDS VOL. 21, NO. 11 SANIBEL & CAPTIVA ISLANDS, FLORIDA SEPTEMBER 6, 2013 BSECTIONCounty, USFWS Purchase 6.57 A cres F or Refugeby Jeff L ysiakTwo separate deals with Lee County and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service will bring an additional 6.57 acres of land under the authority of the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, fulfilling the hopes of longtime environmental supporters who preferred to see the refuge grow rather than see those lands sold off to developers. The purchase of the Woodring property is a great example of cooperation between federal, county and city agencies, along with the private philanthropic sector all working together to protect a pristine piece of property crucial to conservation and wildlife protection, said Jim Sprankle, chair of the Woodring property preservation campaign committee. The combined acreage could have seen developers construct an additional five homes on the islands east end, with a market value of the property estimated at more than $7.9 million. As part of their agreement, Lee County officials voted to spend $3 million to purchase 3.2 acres of land located on Woodring Road. A small house is located on the property, which had previously been suggested for use as an education center, but commissioners decided to remove it. The remaining parcel, slightly larger at 3.37 acres, was purchased for $1.8 million, funds generated through a grassroots capital campaign promoted by the Ding Darling Wildlife Society. Ralph and Jean Woodring, who live in a modest, two-story Cracker-style home built nearly 100 years ago, will be permitted to remain in their house for the rest of their lives, according to the agreement. This is not only an important acquisition for the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, but its a strategic connector piece that enables natural resource monitoring throughout the water, including Tarpon Bay, San Carlos Bay, Pine Island Sound, Matlacha Pass, Charlotte Harbor and the Caloosahatchee River, refuge manager Paul Tritaik told commissioners last week. The purchase of the Woodring property will add to the refuge a key parcel for recreating an intact habitat and wildlife corridor on the point. It ensures the protection of a vital habitat and feeding grounds for a variety of at-risk species and other fauna. John McCabe, president of the Ding Darling Wildlife Society, pointed out that several animals of concern have been seen on the Woodring property, including the bald eagle, gopher tortoise, black continued on page 4B A birds eye view of Ralph and Jean Woodrings historic bayfront property, which will be purchased by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to become part of the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge photo by Jeff Lysiak

11B ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 6, 2013L ee County S ports D evelopment S cores R ecord R esultsDespite near-record rainfall, the Lee County Sports Development Office experienced historic economic results through amateur sporting events held in Lee Countys five county-owned complexes during April, May and June 2013. The 30 amateur sports events held in Lee County during this three-month period brought in 34,904 room nights sold with a direct economic impact totaling more than $13.3 million. Sporting events are a key driver for tourism in Lee County during the off-season months when it can be more challenging to draw northerners to Southwest Florida, said Tamara Pigott, executive director, Lee County Visitors & Convention Bureau. While theyre in Lee County, the athletes, coaches and families fill our hotel rooms, eat in local restaurants, visit our attractions and shop in our stores, all the while helping ensure that the 52,000 people who are employed locally in the tourism industry have jobs during these slower months. The exposure to our region also encourages repeat visitation among travelers who might not otherwise have given us a try. During the month of April, sporting events such as the National College Roller Hockey Championships held at the Fort Myers Skatium helped fill 7,252 hotel room nights and generate more than $3.3 million in direct economic impact. With the return of the popular Perfect Game Memorial Day Classic and non-traditional, amateur sports events, May was an historic month generating 16,132 room nights sold and a direct economic impact of more than $5.4 million. And in June, amateur sports generated 11,521 room nights sold and direct economic impact of $4.5 million. In addition to events held during spring and early summer, July was also a successful month for sports tourism. Julys Perfect Game World Series has grown to the point of expansion into Charlotte County, as we exhausted use of every Lee County facility, said Jeff Mielke, executive director, Lee County Sports Development. Roller hockey in Fort Myers and the state BMX championships in Cape Coral are also among the growing non-traditional sports activities that drew visitors to Lee County this summer, and helped contribute to the economic impact that we experienced during these wet and traditionally slower months for tourism and spending.Also in July, more than 300 youth soccer players with Futbol Club Barcelona youth program, their coaches and families converged on JetBlue Park. This is the first year the club, among the highest profile soccer groups worldwide, has staged a camp in Fort Myers.Other non-traditional sports events held this year included the National High School Gymnastics Associations Girls National Championships at the Estero Recreation Center, USA Badminton Masters Championships at the Estero Recreation Center and the Florida Firefighter Games at multiple locations locally. Operated by Lee County Parks and Recreation, Lee Countys five county-owned baseball complexes play host to more than 200 days of amateur baseball tournaments a year when they arent being used for spring training games. The estimated economic impact of these events is $50 million annually. For more information, call 344-5201or visit www.leeparks.org.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 6, 201312B Pre-Season Predictions For The Red Sox And Twins Prove Half Rightby Ed FrankWe dug back into the papers archives for the April 5 edition which was just a few days after the Boston Red Sox and the Minnesota Twins had departed here following spring training. We reported in that edition that the baseball experts predicted last-place finishes for both teams predictions by Sports Illustrated, by Phil Rogers of the Chicago Tribune and others. The Sports Illustrated predictions were for a 77-85 season for the Red Sox and a 60-102 record for the Twins that would lead to the firing of Twins manager Ron Gardenhire. And Rogers wrote: that Red Sox manager John Farrell, who left Toronto to take the Boston job, will be sorry he left Toronto as the next few years look miserable for the Red Sox organization. How wrong they were, at least when it comes to the Red Sox. The fact is that Farrell is a strong candidate for American League Manager of the Year for the job he has done to revitalize a team that has been atop the American League Eastern Division for the vast majority of the season. As we entered the Labor Day Weekend, the Red Sox were 79-55, having won four straight, seven of 10 and riding a three-game first-place lead over Tampa. Sure, plenty can happen in the last five weeks of the season (we remember the September meltdown of the Bosox two years ago), but it appears this team is hitting its stride at the most important time of the season. Starting pitching had been the big question at the seasons start, but the rotation anchored by John Lackey and Jon Lester had a combined 2.90 ERA for the month of August and the Red Sox rotation had compiled a 3.81 ERA, second-best in the league only behind Detroit. In addition, the shrewd move by General Manager Ben Cherrington to acquire pitcher Jake Peavy just before the trade deadline further solidified the Red Sox mound. Peavy had a solid 3.31 ERA in five starts for his new team. Boston is a playoff-bound team, a team far different from the team a year ago that was demoralized, splintered and confused under manager Bobby Valentine who was wisely fired after just one season. Its hard to believe that after losing 93 games last season and cutting payroll, Boston appears headed for that magic last to first finish this year. As for the Twins, what can we write that hasnt been written nearly the entire season? They lost 99 games in 2011, 96 games in 2012, and appear destined to lose more than 90 again this season. And the way they have been playing of late, they may well lose the 102 games predicted by Rogers. Heading into the Labor Day Weekend, the Twins were 57-75 having lost five straight and seven of the last 10. They were just one game ahead of the last-place Chicago White Sox in the AL Central. As we all know, predicting the outcome of anything in sports is a risky business. But in the case of the Boston Red Sox and the Minnesota Twins, the pre-season prognostications appear half correct. After all, 50 percent isnt half bad.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 6, 201316B Several years ago, you took out a life insurance policy on your life and named your spouse as the owner and primary beneficiary. Makes perfect sense, doesnt it? When completing the life insurance paperwork, you may have relied upon the agent who sold you the policy. Or you may have just figured that because the policy insures your life that its logical to conclude your spouse will survive you so she should own the policy. Except thats not how you should title the ownership of the policy. Suppose, for example, that you survive your spouse, and you want to change the beneficiary of the policy on your life. You cant change the beneficiary of the policy because you dont own it. Your spouse owned the policy. She was the only one who had the legal right to change the beneficiaries. On her death, her Last Will & Testament leaves you everything, including the insurance policy, but in order to transfer ownership from her estate to you a probate process would be required. That probate process could be very time consuming and expensive. So how should you title the ownership of life insurance policies? Everyones situation will be different, so as a general rule you should tell your estate planning attorney about any life insurance policies that you own. He or she can then counsel you on the most advantageous way to designate the ownership and beneficiaries for that policy. Important information that your attorney will need to counsel you includes not only the amount of the death benefit, but also the current cash surrender value, whose life the policy insures, who owns the policy, the amount of the annual premium payments, and the names of the primary and contingent beneficiaries. Another important factor when deciding who should own the life insurance policy is the tax consequence associated with the policy. While life insurance is usually income tax free to the recipient, the amount of the policy is included in the deceased owners estate for federal estate tax purposes. So if Glenn owns a $2 million life insurance policy on his life that pays to his children, that $2 million death benefit increases the value of Glenns estate. That could, conceivably, create a taxable estate where none would otherwise exist. If estate tax is not a concern even when adding the value of the life insurance to ones estate, then, generally speaking it is a good idea for the person who is the insured to own the policy on his or her life. The transfer of the policy to change beneficiaries is not an issue, because when the insured dies, then the policy pays the death benefit to the beneficiaries. In other words, the policy will never continue on beyond the insureds life, since by definition it pays the death benefit when he dies. If, on the other hand, estate tax could be concern in the insureds estate, then several other options should be considered. One option is to create an irrevocable life insurance trust (ILIT) to own the policy. By having an ILIT own the policy (provided the insured survives the transfer to the ILIT for a period of three years), the death benefits could avoid taxation. The transfer to the ILIT, however, could be a taxable gift, depending upon the cash surrender value of the policy at the time of transfer. Moreover, the ongoing premium payments could be taxable gifts so the ILIT should be constructed in such a manner as to take advantage of the gift tax annual exclusion amounts (currently $14,000 per beneficiary annually). You may have heard of Crummey powers that are used to that end. Another viable option includes having the insureds revocable living trust own the policy and also be the designated beneficiary of the policy. Here, the ownership and beneficiary designation could be constructed to take advantage of the deceaseds federal estate tax exemptions if they are needed, while the revocable trust that receives the death benefits would then benefit the deceaseds spouse and children. The trust could also include provisions designed to protect the benefits from creditors or predators of the surviving spouse and children. Yet another option is to create a revocable trust that the insureds children own. This strategy is used when the children are the intended beneficiaries of the policy but the familys goals include minimizing estate tax while preserving flexibility and avoiding probate. As one might fathom from this short article, there are several good strategies to consider when considering the owner and beneficiary of a life insurance policy. As with many estate planning decisions, it is good practice to take ones time and consider all alternatives since mistakes can be costly and are easily avoided with a little forethought. Craig R.

17B ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 6, 2013S chool S martby S helley M. Greggs, NC SPDear Shelley, I have a middle school daughter and we have had our fair share of mean girl stuff at her school. I want my daughter to enjoy school and feel that she is a valuable member of her class but these negative situations are really hard on her. Is there anything I do to help her cope with the negative and often cruel behaviors that she sees and sometimes has to personally experience at school? Glenna L., Cape Coral, Florida Glenna, As a parent, I empathize with you. Middle school is a very difficult time period for children. They are experiencing enormous physical and emotional development as well as intense academic and social demands and pressures. The good news is that most kids are resilient and get through middle school relatively unscathed, however, it is important for adults to serve as role models and also teach kids how to cope. Here is some new information that might be helpful to you, your daughter and her school. A recent study has provided some new information about middle school students and what they value in their peers and about themselves and the data indicated that kindness is linked to popularity among middle-schoolers. While being popular does not necessarily protect one from bullying, it does increase a students circle of friends and provides more socializing opportunities. Dr. Kristin Layous, a psychologist at the University of California, Riverside, observed 415 students ages 9 to 11 in 19 classrooms in Vancouver, BC over four weeks. They began observations in the second half of the school year, when most students knew one another and friendships were more solidified. At the beginning of this study, students reported on their own life satisfaction, happiness, and positivity, and then marked on a school roster the classmates they would like to be in school activities and spend time with, a gauge researchers found associated with peer acceptance. For the next four weeks, students were asked to either visit three places of interest to them or to perform three acts of kindness each week for anyone they knew. At the end of the trial, students again reported on their own happiness, and were again asked to mark a roster of classmates they considered friends. Researchers found that both groups, either by visiting places of interest or doing kind acts, were slightly happier and more satisfied by the end of the study, and in both groups students reported wanting to engage with more classmates. However, the students who had per formed kind acts garnered significantly more new friends than those who had visited places; about 1.6 new friends on average compared with 0.7 for the other group. These findings, while limited and based on one study, do present an additional focus and another way for school personnel, student groups, parent groups and others interested in helping young adolescents cope with bullying and other negative behaviors. Promoting activities that encourage and reward kindness may really help to reduce the negativity and mean behaviors at the middle school level. There are many ways that a school could promote kindness. Parent groups could also encourage kindness activities, as could student groups. This message could also be shared on an individual basis between parent and child. Random acts of kindness, an idea that has been popular for some time, is a great resource to help with explaining what kindness is and how to grow this attitude in children and adults. This website is designed specifically for Random Acts of Kindness at the school setting and has lots of good ideas and resources: http://www. randomactsofkindness.org/school-activityideas.

18B ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 6, 2013 M om A nd Me by L izzie and P ryceLizzie 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, My mother-in-law hated me from the first day she met me. She thought I wasnt good enough for her daughter. I guess I wasnt then, but as luck would have it, I have been extremely successful. She hated our son, but adored our daughter. After my wife mentioned it to her, she disliked them both. Years have passed and when my mother-in-laws health started to go, I asked her to come and live in our home. She lived with us for six years and not a day passed that she didnt tell me how she still hated me. Please tell me why would a person be so hurtful to us when we have been so good to her? Erick Dear Erick, Treating others well regardless of how you are treated by them well done! I wish many would watch and learn from your example. It is a difficult road and at times, I am sure, seems impossible, but it screams a lot about your character. Your mother-in-law sounds like a self-centered individual, interested only in her own feelings. I am sure she can justify everything she says, feels and does. I do not know why she acts the way she does. One thing is for sure: she is not going to change. She is getting her needs met by being mean. If and when her presence in the home affects your familys health and happiness, making a change is OK and not throwing in the towel. In some families due to personalities, past history, etc., strong and wide boundaries are needed. You can still care, but care from a distance. Pryce Dear Erick, Congratulations on your success. Some people would never ever admit that they could do anything wrong. Their opinions are right, regardless of the facts. You were kind and generous people to give her a home. Her mental impairment in later life just compounded the problem. Some people seem to be nasty individuals, regardless of the kindness of others. Nasty when they were young and even worse when they are older. Lizzie Lizzie and Pryces email address is momandmeaging@hotmail.com.

Eden Energy MedicineA rrhythmic Heart B eat T race Heart M eridianby Karen L. Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAML(03-12)Periodically experience irregular or rapid heart beats? If you are feeling anxious; over whelmed; in panic; have angina; experience pain in your armpits; gums bleeding; low or high blood pressure; pain in chest; chill easily; circulation problems; dizziness; overheat easily; heart palpitations; bleeding problems; extreme thirst; excessive bruising or swollen glands, then it is extremely likely you will benefit from tracing your heart meridian. Our heart, the most Yin of all organs, is the biggest generator of electricity in our body and when it is not optimally functioning, dis-ease of various natures may occur. The list above contains some indicators. Of course, as with any condition, EEM is a compliment to advise from your doctor. So if you suspect an issue with your heart, always make sure you consult with your physician. As a reminder, view the August 9 and 16 columns, since the basics of tracing are set forth. Meridian Flow Wheel Time of Day Heart meridians high tide is 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. We always begin and end by tracing central and governing meridians before starting to trace the other meridians. If you begin tracing the meridians at 11:30 a.m., then you are in the high tide of heart, so this is the meridian to use to begin the tracing. Reasons To Trace Alone In Addition To Tracing All Meridians Although it is best to trace all your meridians as one continuous flow, you may want to trace heart if you are experiencing any of the symptoms noted in the opening paragraph of this column. Affirmation for this meridian is I deeply and completely love and accept myself. Some believe that heart is the center of our essence, which enables connection not only to ourselves where we find center, but also to all other living things, including humans. From a Chinese Medicine standpoint, the heart is the last organ to cease functioning, so we want to keep it healthy. 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. Pathway of Meridian Heart meridian is associated with the heart organ. The beginning point of heart meridian is at the deepest recesses under your armpit, where it is the most protected of all meridian pathways; and the end point is at the medial edge of the base of the nail on your little finger. To trace heart, place your open palm under the opposite side of the body in the middle of your armpit. Continue moving your open palm down the inside of the arm in a direct line to the underside of the little finger, where you pull the energy off. Thats it. You just traced heart meridian! Flushing Or Tracing The Meridian Backwards Never trace heart backwards! Whenever you feel any of the symptoms referenced in the first paragraph, use the affirmation and trace the heart meridian three times on one side and then three times on the other. Do it more if it feels good. You cant do this too much. The action is sending direct energy right to the heart. Bonus If, out of the blue and unexpectantly, you are feeling irregularity, arrhythmia, palpitations or a rapid heart rate, place both your little fingers in your mouth, with the base of the inside edge of the nail bed against the upper teeth and the base of the outside edge of the nail bed against the lower front teeth and chop down on the little finger. Hold for at least 30 seconds to a minute. This action sends energy directly into the heart meridian and removes it from small intestine meridian. Try it it truly works. You are set. Keep this column as a reminder of how to trace heart while you learn the next 11 meridians over the next several months. Have fun with your energy! Next weeks topic is Feeling Indecisive, Cant Let Go? Trace Small Intestine Meridian. If you have a questions for Karen, email her at ksemmelmanenergy@ gmail.com.

19B ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 6, 2013 deaRPharmacistOsteoarthritisby S uzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: I am 60 years old, and now Im told I have osteoarthritis. My doctor said that there is no known cure for this. I need to know the best natural treatments. OW, Melbourne, Florida There isnt a quick magical fix for osteoarthritis, you have to treat the cause and its not always easy to figure that out. Osteoarthritis has always been considered a wear and tear disease. But tick bites can cause painful, swollen joints (Lyme disease) and that is actually how Lyme was discovered; kids with joint pain were popping up all over Lyme, Connecticut. There are many prescription drugs that ease pain, such as Celebrex or Relafen. They are not always tolerated. For the most severe cases, physical ther apy, injections of cortisone and surgery may be options. These, of course, have their own risks. Lets talk about simple things! Capsaicin Lets hear it for peppers. Commercial capsaicin products are sold nationwide in patch form, gel, cream and roll-on. You apply it externally and, with repeated applications, it helps block pain signals. Wash your hands after applications (or use gloves). The last thing you want to do is apply capsaicin, then get it on yourself in the bathroom. Talk about a hot tamale! Astaxanthin This protective antioxidant is best known for vision health, however, it suppresses COX 2 enzyme, prostaglandins, interleukins, and tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-a). Simply put, astaxanthin helps painful situations that end in itis like arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis, etc. You may need 6 to 12mg daily. Glucosamine sulfate You make this if you have healthy cartilage, but you can also supplement. I think its well toler ated, even though the studies are mixed. Glucosamine may be helpful, but only if combined with other substances. Ginger A natural spice that has antiinflammatory properties, also sold as a supplement. I eat this with sushi all the time, but you can buy it as a powdered spice, or fresh root in the produce section, and turn it into a tea. It reduces pain by blocking prostaglandins (thats what ibuprofen does too). Ginger is selective, it only blocks the bad prostaglandins, not the ones that benefit your body. DMSO This is used on race horses, externally. Many Internet sites sell it, and health food stores. People use it all the time for joint pain, including myself but because it is technically for horses, unless youre a horse, I cant really tell you anything more. Methylsulfonylmethane (or you can just say MSM, phew!) is a natural sulfur compound related to DMSO (see above), and its been shown to improve pain symptoms, and although it is present in trace amounts in a variety of food, it is much more efficient to take as a supplement. I can send you a longer, detailed ver sion with more remedies and treatment options. Sign up for my newsletter at www.DearPharmacist.com to get it.

Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: I just had a stress test and my doctor says my adrenals are depleted and I have chronic stress. What causes the adrenals to be depleted and how much is diet related?A: We might not think that a highsugar diet can be the result of a stressful condition, but this may sometimes be the case. Acute stressors may trigger a surge of powerful biochemical processes in the body. It starts with the adrenal glands. The adrenals produce many differ ent hormones. When the initial stressor is under way, they begin by producing adrenaline. The adrenaline surge prepares the body to be ready for fight or flight. This is a short-term response. With the increase of adrenaline, you have that increased short-term strength (some people have lifted a car to get someone out of danger). Later, cortisol is produced. Cortisol is the hormone that helps subdue the initial adrenaline rush after the crisis has passed. If you have an ongoing stressor that becomes chronic, however, the levels of adrenaline and therefore cortisol remain high longer than they should. Gradually, the adrenals may become depleted, but if the chronic stress remains, the body may then in some people crave sugar for the energy that our depleted adrenals can no longer regulate. Lets look at what may be the diet of a chronically stressed individual. Breakfast: Sweetened coffee, bowl of sugar-coated cereal or pastry, sweet drink or juice. Some people skip breakfast completely. Lunch: If you are on the go or you eat at your desk, lunch may look something like this:Chips and soda, instant soup or a burger. If you are really super busy, maybe you skip lunch or munch a candy bar. Dinner: Are you the king or queen of take out? Pizza and diet soda? Burger and fries? Half gallon of ice cream with chocolate sauce? On the nights you are too tired to stop by the take-out place, do you settle for cheese and crackers or a bowl of sugar-coated cereal? If you regularly eat foods of the typical American diet as outlined above, you are feeding your body in an unhealthy and eventually harmful way. The problems with such a diet in general are of two kinds, quality and quantity. Daily intake of foods high in sugar and fat with little nutritional content does not support the body qualitatively, since the body needs protein, vitamins, minerals, and some carbohydrates to support metabolic processes. Quantitatively, fat is more than twice as rich in calories than either protein or carbohydrates, and the body requires some fat but less than protein and carbohydrates. In addition and very important, eating too much of any food, that is, in amounts greater than the energy you expend, leads to overweight and obesity. Obesity is defined not only as weighing too much for your height (body mass index of 30 or higher) but also as having too high a per centage of fat in the body, a combination that leads to many other illnesses, such as type II or adult-onset diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and some cancers as well. Today, obesity affects people of all ages, including children, and is considered to be epidemic in the United States and in other developed nations. Obesity has pushed the incidence of type II diabetes to levels unheard of before in our country, leading to the development of this type of diabetes in children and calling for a new name to designate what was once called adult-onset diabetes. Focus On Eating As A Part Of A Healthy Lifestyle Balance in eating is as important as balance in relationships and other aspects of life. Instead of adopting limiting attitudes toward eating, such as, I need to diet to reduce my weight, think of eating as nourishment for the body, the temple of your spirit on earth, and experience for the souls growth. To safeguard your body by reducing risks associated with lifestyle, learn about and adopt eating habits that enhance health. Eat protein in moderation as well as starches. Avoid fatty and fried foods. Remember the advice your mother gave you to eat your vegetables. Dont forget fruit and nuts (in moderation) as nutritious contributions to your overall health. If you have been told you are at low risk for cardiovascular disease, eat eggs in moderation. Organic eggs are nutritious, but they do contain levels of cholesterol (dietary cholesterol) that may increase levels of cholesterol in the bloodstream and may have other effects as well, such as triggering allergic reactions in people so inclined. Look for healthy protein shakes that include nutritious ingredients. Always read labels on everything you buy. Many products contain unhealthy levels of fat, sugar and sodium that do not contribute to a healthy lifestyle. Buy organic products if your food budget permits. Check out the website of the Environmental Working Group, which has created a shoppers guide that rates fruits and vegetables from least to most contaminated, with recommendations on the foods that should always be bought from organic producers if you want to reduce exposure to pesticides and herbicides.
