7 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 27, 2013 Sanibel Firefighter Rescues Cat After House Fireby Jeff LysiakWhen members of the Sanibel Fire & Rescue District (SFRD) were called in to assist the Iona-McGregor Fire Department with a house fire in South Fort Myers on September 6, their presence was assumed to be cleanup duty. The fire was pretty much down, said Captain John Griffith of the SFRD. So when I was going through the house, I was checking the kitchen, checking the living room making sure that everything was out. But not everything was. I looked down and saw what I thought was a balled-up sweatshirt and it turned out to be the familys cat, said Griffith, who reached down into three inches of standing water to discover the kitten was still alive. As soon as I picked it up, the cat made a little move. It started panting its mouth was wide open. Griffith picked up the feline and told his fellow rescuers, This cats alive! As soon as he picked up the cat, the animal instinctively clutched Griffith, holding itself close to the firefighter. The pair exited the burnt-out structure, and Griffith quickly found a member of the Iona-McGregor squad, who gave the kitten oxygen using a special mask designed for small animals. (The cat) was clawed right up close to me and he wasnt letting go, recalled Griffith. I think at that point, he was on his eighth or ninth life. But he made it. After 20 or 25 minutes, Griffith was able to hand the kitten over to its owners, who were ecstatic to get their cat back. They told me that the cat had just turned 1 year old, Griffith added. In my 17 years of being a firefighter, I had never been able to save the life of an animal like that, so it was kinda cool. It was luck more than anything else. Capt.

Old Bailey Store To Get A New Roofby Anne MitchellThe planning commission gave its blessing Tuesday for a new metal roof to replace the metal and shake roof currently in place on the historic Baileys General Store in the Sanibel Historical Village. Because its a listed building, any changes require a certificate of appropriateness. The citys Historic Preservation Committee has previously approved the measure. Work will include adding a layer of insulation to the non-air-conditioned building. The old store may also be given new impact-resistance windows, but no permission is required for that since it will not change the appearance.

That way he can avoid the area where the birds are nesting required by federal and state law and begin work on one or more homes, depending on what the planning commission approves for each phase. On Tuesday, commissioners unanimously recommended a code amendment that would allow phased development of a major plat, something the current code doesnt permit. Its not targeted at a specific developer and none was named during the proceedings, but if approved by the city council October 1, it will apply to this, the last major undeveloped tract on Sanibel. Development permits are valid for two years with an option for a two-year extension. Planning Director Jim Jordan said the amended ordinance would allow for flexibility in carrying out phases. The next part of this would be for the planning commission to find that the application warrants being constructed in phases and the timing for the subsequent phases, he said. Jordan added, We probably only have one or two subdivisions that would be developed on the island. Sanibel is close to build-out. Commissioner Holly Smith asked what would constitute a phase, could it be one house, and whether common areas would have to be built during the first phase. She did not want to see what has happened in Lee County with developments started then stopped due to the real estate bust. Now developers are more cautious. Under the new ordinance, Jordan said that would be up to the planning commission to determine whats appropriate. Program For Middle And High School Students The Journey program for middle and high school students begins on Wednesday, October 2 at 5:30 p.m. at Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ, 2050 Periwinkle Way. Faith is a life-long journey, but for middle school and high school youth, this is a time to start forming their own paths. Youths journeys take a variety of forms, complete with their own experiences and questions. Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ offers Journey as a chance for sixth through 12th graders to get together Wednesday evenings and share their journeys through fun, friendship, worship, service projects and faith lessons. The program is held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesdays beginning October 2. The first half hour will be a time to hang out together. Then, led by Associate Pastor Deb Kunkel, the next hour and a half will be spent exploring what it means to live on a Christian faith journey. Games, social media, storytelling, arts and spiritual practices will be used. Middle and high school youth will either meet together or be split into groups by age, depending on the activities. Each week will end with a brief devotion time before parting. Youth are encouraged to bring friends and guests and are welcome to join in the optional Pizza Club at 5 p.m. for families for a freewill donation. For more information, or if you would like to volunteer to help, see Pastor Deb at Sanibel Congregational UCC, call 472-0497 or email email@example.com.

Each week will start with a half-hour of free time for play or homework, then Pastor Deb will lead the kids through the next hour and a half to discover how Gods love shines both on you and through you to others, as you witness in scripture and in your daily lives. Preschoolers will join Ms. Judi for parts on this time for their own activities. Faith lessons, arts and crafts, games, devotions, music, and service projects are part of the program. There will also be special guests from the church family and from the community who will share their faith experiences with the children. There is an optional Pizza Club at 5 p.m. each week open to the kids and their families. Older and younger siblings as well as parents are welcome.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 27, 201310 RAY BUCKRay Buck, 83, of Sanibel died on September 20 at Hope Hospice in Fort Myers. A New England Yankee by birth and thought, he was born in Rhode Island and later resided in Connecticut before moving to Sanibel 19 years ago. He was a caring, intelligent and generous man. He was well-known in New England for his 20-plus years as a volunteer coach for the Mansfield Frogs swim team. He taught hundreds of young children how to swim competitively and was much beloved as Coach Buck. He leaves behind his loving wife, Mary; three devoted daughters, Susan Buck and her husband Ed Chappell, Carol Whitehead and her husband Frank, Amy Diehl and her husband Paul; five grandchildren, and a dear cousin, Linda Meunier. Ray served in the U.S. Army dur ing the Korean War period where he put his writing talents to good use. Ray had a passion for writing and enjoyed a life-long career fashioning and honing his skills as a writer and editor for several daily newspapers, continuing as a playwright, and as an academic editor and publisher at the University of Connecticut. In his later years, he devoted much of his energy to poetry capturing his joy in life and living. A proud graduate of Dartmouth College, Ray was named the Class of Poet. He published a book of poems, South of Providence. He was a member of the Island Writers Group Four and a frequent participant in the Sanibel-Captiva Island Writers Read as well as at the Open Mics at The Bean. Always an avid gardener, he found great pleasure in the beauty of wild and domesticated flowers and plantings. He was a docent at the Sanibel Historical Museum and, after much research, recreated the gardens as they once were, now located behind The Rutland House. Below is the last poem, Orange Moon, Ray wrote soon after completing his first chemotherapy treatment: Orange Moon To the clouded eyes of the chemo patient, a small orange moon lifts through green leaves to branches high above earths dusty surface. The last honeybell of long past picking time hangs sky high at tree top where an areca palm challenges for sun and backyard growth space. In ripening majesty of January, honeybell associates were picked by hand at lower levels and plucked from highest branches by a red basket on a red pole that got long and longer, or shorter, with each twist. Now, honeybells in juicy prime a memory, but for one that hangs dried out, wind buffeted, bright in sunshine. It could not last. In the torrent of a night thunderstorm, the last honeybell, its branch snapped, fell to earth. In morning light, the chemo patient scanned the tree, pulling aside branches with eyes from top to bottom until on the brown earth beneath the fruit was found. The orange moon like the patients face had no glow. Some say the orange moon glow foretells a death. Other say it is but a freak of nature like the honeybell that hangs long beyond its allotted time, or kind. For those wishing to make a contribution in Rays memory, donations to the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village, P.O. Box 413, Sanibel, FL 33957, are suggested.

BOAT RENTALS 472-5800 R eport From S anibel-Captiva S ail & P ower S quadron M eetingThe Sanibel Captiva Sail & Power Squadron held its first fall meeting on September 17 at The Community House. Following social hour, the meeting was called to order by Administrative Officer Lt./C. Charlene Timothy. Upcoming boating and kayaking events were highlighted. The boating education offerings for the coming season were presented. A buffet dinner was followed by a presentation by Executive Director of the Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau Tamara Pigott. Pigott explained that the bureaus job is to attract visitors to Lee County, helping the local economy. Another record year for tourism is anticipated in 2013 with approximately 1.5 million people already visiting between January and June. Pigott emphasized that one in five jobs in Lee County are in the tourism industry. She explained that a portion of the Tourist Development Tax or bed tax comes back to Sanibel to maintain the beaches and shoreline, as well as other tourist facilities. Pigott showed examples from the Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau website (www.fortmyers-sanibel.com) of some of the marketing efforts made to attract visitors to Lee County. She also shared some new ways the bureau is using social media to reach its audience, including an innovative promotion using Google Glass technology.

13 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 27, 2013 The Bait Box Collecting Snook Carcasses For Scientific Researchby Jeff LysiakThe Bait Box on Sanibel has joined scientists with the Florida Fish & Wildlife Research Institute (FWRI), who are asking anglers to save their filleted snook carcasses. This is the second time weve participated in a snook research program, said TJ Haley of The Bait Box. Snook is one of the fish that people come here for. Its not in Texas and its not in the Carolinas. Its important to us they are one of the game fish that makes Florida the fishing capital of the world. According to the FWRI, the snook carcasses will provide information on the size, age, maturity and sex of the catch. This program allows anglers to participate in the collection of data regarding Floridas premier inshore game fish. FWRI conducts applied research and provides scientific information used to manage Floridas marine resources. Snook are super fun to catch, Haley added. They never give up the fight, theyre super meaty and theyre one of the besttasting fish in our waters. Guidelines for donating snook carcasses: Donate only legal snook continued on page 16 TJ Haley of The Bait Box displays a pair of frozen snook carcasses, which will be picked up by FWRI scientists from St. Petersburg next week Doug Schallmoser, an employee at The Bait Box, caught this 33-inch snook last week off Tarpon Bay Beach We Proudly Brew Tropial Outdoor Patio Seating Appetizers & Full Dinners Best Prices On The Planet Serving Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner 7 days a week.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 27, 201314 The First Feel Of Fall Is In The Airby Capt. Matt MitchellFor the first time in months, our morning low temperatures and humidity took a little break and things finally felt a bit cooler. Daytime highs were still hot but its always refreshing to feel the first little signs that cooler temperatures are on the way. After a long hot summer, cooler temperatures and the change of season will be welcome. The timing for our first cold front is generally in November or early December, though some years its earlier or later. Once that first cold front pushes through, it seems we get on 7to 10-day pattern of cold fronts passing through. Once our water temperatures drop into the mid 70s fishing really goes off. With the change of season, fall fishing will bring some great action, often some of the fastest paced of the year. Huge amounts of bait fish show up all through our area along with the migrating species that follow as everything makes its way south for winter. Resident gamefish such as snook will begin to pack on pounds, feeding hard on whitebait before things get cold. This week marked the first time since the end of spring that I started to switch it up and fish with whitebait again. In places where I have been catching pinfish in the cast net, shiners have just started to show up. Fishing with live shiners always makes for some great visual surface strikes. Although the fish have not completely switched over to a shiner pattern yet, its started and will happen in the next few weeks. Redfish action continues to be the best bite in town with lots of redfish being caught on just about every trip. Often for the first few hours of a trip we have spent our time catching other species while waiting for the tide to get up high enough to target redfish. That often entails going out on the flats for trout, ladyfish, mackerel and sharks, then fishing some deeper mangrove channels for gag grouper, a few snook and jacks. I did not run into any low water schools of redfish this week in the southern sound as most mornings seemed to be more on the choppy side than last week, making the redfish harder to spot Once the tide got up about half way I would move on to mangrove fish. The bite would often start out a little slow then pick up as the tide got higher. This often meant finishing up a trip hot, which is never a bad thing. Redfish up to 31 inches were caught mangrove fishing in the southern sound this week along with a great mixed bag of other species. Mixed in with the redfish were some snook, big mangrove snappers, a few 4to 5-pound trout and even a 30-inch barracuda. Small freelined pinfish, tail-hooked, were the bait of choice. These fish were often out from the mangroves during the middle stage of the incoming tide then as the tide got higher the fish would push up tighter to the tres. With our tides flipping over by the end of the week we will have great early morning high tides giving anglers lots of options. Oyster bars in the middle sound were also good places to target redfish on the higher water. During high water periods, many were holding good numbers of hungry redfish. This action was at polar opposites: not a bite or as many redfish as you wanted to catch. The key was to keep fishing and moving bar to bar until you located them. One day one bar would be on fire then the next day it would be a different bar. These schools of redfish are on the move and to get on them usually means fishing a lot of different spots to find them. 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.

As a member of the rose family, it is a relative of the loquat, quince and apple. Low maintenance and slow growth add to its popularity. Because it typically reaches only three or feet tall, it makes a good low border or mass planting. Deemed Florida-friendly, it has become a staple of Florida landscaping, partly because it remains short and doesnt require repeated trimming. It has a compact irregularly branched form. The evergreen leaves are about three inches long, leathery and serrated. Panicles of tiny fragrant five-petaled flowers range from white, to pink-tinged, to deep pink, depending on the cultivar. Flowers bloom most profusely in spring and attract bees and butterflies. The purple-black berries called pomes attract birds. Indian hawthorn prefers full sun but will tolerate shade. It has moderate salt tolerance and water requirements. Give it a well-drained area and avoid over-watering.

For the cattle egret (Bubulcus ibis), it is a daily pastime. Frequently seen riding on the backs of grazing cattle, picking ticks from their hides, these avians arrived in North America from Africa in 1953. Also found in Asia, Australia, Europe and South America, they spend their days quietly foraging alongside rhinos, camels, ostriches and beach-bound shell collectors, eating the insects stirred up by slow-moving livestock and herds of wild animals. The cattle egret is more terrestrial than other members of the heron family and well-adapted to urban areas. Possessing an unusually large range, the mediumsize bird is easily distinguished by its short orange legs and stocky white body. Earlier this month, a downed cattle egret was admitted to CROW. The bird was extremely thin and is currently on strict cage rest. Hes doing better with eating since we increased the number of feedings throughout the day, said Katie McInnis, one of CROWs DVM interns. He still seems really depressed and not willing to walk around regularly, but he may not feel well enough yet. What we need to do, first thing every morning, is feed a couple of fish to him, before we do hospital rounds, then feed another fish or two to him right after rounds. Every hour, on the hour, all day long, Dr. Heather, CROWs hospital director, advised the staff. See if we can get some weight back on him, because weakness due to so much weight loss is most likely the problem. If you want to learn more about patient care at the Sanibel wildlife clinic, attend the special presentation Clinic Rounds on Thursday, October 3 from 11 a.m. to noon. The event is presented weekly by the CROW medical staff. Meet the veterinarian, rehabbers or students who will share insight about the innerworkings of CROWs hospital, which sees about 4,000 patients per year.

Last year, Southwest Floridas only wildlife hospital cared for 3,583 sick, injured, and orphaned animals. Of the 200 different species, 61 percent were birds, with 33 percent mammals and six percent reptiles. CROW is not permitted to display patients to the public, so this presentation offers the next best thing; numerous candid snapshots of current and past patients, with commentary by Claudia Burns, a veteran clinic volunteer. The next CROW Picture Show is on Friday September 27 at 11 a.m. in the CROW Healing Winds Visitor Education Center at 3883 Sanibel-Captiva Road, across from The Sanibel School. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for teens, free for members and children 12 and under.

The program is one of the museums most important educational outreach endeavors. It covers transportation costs and a half-day of inspired learning at the museum for all Lee County public school fourth grade children. The program is frequently heralded as the highlight of the school year by both teachers and their students. Since the program began in 1998, the museum has provided educational tours to over 25,000 public school children. Unfortunately, funding for the program has faced several challenges in recent years. In 2003, Lee County began phasing out support for transportation costs. Recently, increased gas prices and a decline in funding from private sources have further threatened the program. This program is very important to the shell museum because so much of our focus and purpose here is education and science, said Education Director and Curator Jos H. Leal, PhD. We enjoy hosting the classes and we know just how much the teachers and the children look forward to this experience. Its a great opportunity for them to visit our museum that is known all over the world. Last year, a special appeal to bridge a shortfall in funding resulted in one generous individual who helped the museum fund 15 classes so that all children could visit the museum. The cost of each class is $350 and this year, museum staff and board hope to reach new donors to fund several classes. The museum seeks individuals and organizations to adopt at least one class and, if possible, encourages adoption of more than one class. Donors will receive a photograph and thank you letters from each class they adopt after the program concludes. For more information about the shell museum and the Adopt-A-Class program, visit www.shellmuseum.org or call Jos Leal at 395-2233.

Expires 10/4/13 Zonta Hears Of P rogress A gainst Human S laveryAt its September program meeting, the Zonta Club of Sanibel-Captiva heard from two women who are at the forefront of the fight against gender violence and human slavery: Yaro Garcia, clinical director for the Abuse, Counseling & Treatment Center (ACT) in Fort Myers, and Nola Theiss, founder of Human Trafficking Awareness Partnerships (HTAP). Zonta has a special interest in these two organizations, having provided financial grants to both in recent years. Together, in their separate but complementary organizations, these women have made their mark on Southwest Florida and beyond. Their efforts help to provide counseling and safe havens for victims; bring local groups together into coalitions; train law enforcement officers; and blaze new trails in the ongoing battle against domestic and sexual violence. Garcia, who also serves as president of the Southwest Florida Coalition Against Human Trafficking, spoke of the challenges in identifying victims of human trafficking and bringing perpetrators to justice. Fear of authority, language barriers, and other obstacles are common. One young girl, sold into slavery at age 12 by her father for $5,000, and a captive for seven years, had been brought by her captors to a hospital when she was pregnant. Silently, she prayed in vain that the nurses would notice something and maybe keep her there. From this and other cases, using grants from Zonta and the Southwest Florida Community Foundation, Garcia and Theiss created an effective program, Point of Contact: Point of Rescue. With posters reminding care providers and employees of signs of human trafficking, it links medical professionals with law enforcement and the ACT crisis hotline, and a reporting protocol to follow. HTAP will also train Florida Gulf Coast University students to make them aware of a program that educates staff of fast food restaurants, including using posters and cards, on how to spot signs of human trafficking among customers. Awareness and knowledge are on the upswing, Garcia said, but even when victims are found and rescued, bringing perpetrators to justice remains elusive, mostly due to lack of hard evidence. Worldwide, we estimate there are 20continued on page 28 Theiss and Garcia with 50 immediate care packs for ACT clients, provided through a grant from the Junior League of Fort Myers Nola Theiss, right, with Yaro Garcia Sanibel Grill Open 4pm Monday Friday Happy Hour Daily 4:00pm 6:00pm 10:00pm MidnightNOW OPEN 11:30 am Saturday & Sunday Showing ALL THE GAMES!Sushi & Sashimi Thursday & Fridays! 703 Tarpon Bay Road | www.prawnbroker.com | 472-3128 35 Years of Fresh Fish on Sanibel Island! 13 Dinners for $13, before 6pm 7 daysTimbers Open 5:00-9:30pm Fish Market Open at 11am

27 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 27, 2013 Baseballs Story Of The Year The Resurgence Of The Boston Red Soxby Ed FrankOK, Red Sox Nation, you have much to cheer about as your beloved team has gone from last to first capturing the American League Eastern Division, and as we went to press earlier this week, was within an eyelash of securing Fenway Park advantage throughout the postseason. The 2013 reclamation of the Boston Red Sox is truly one of the top if not the top sports story of the year. Here was a team that lost 93 games a year ago, finishing a staggering 26 games out of first place. As the week began, Boston was 95-62, with its sight set on reaching the 100-win mark for the season, which would be a first since 1946. Of course, that goal would require running the table for the last five games. A 5-0 season finale would guarantee home field advantage, an important post-season factor for the Red Sox considering they owned the AL best home record at 53-28 earlier this week. Any time we can play in Fenway Park in front of our fans, youve seen all year long the energy that gives us, said first-year manager John Farrell, who in my book should be a consensus choice for American League Manager of the Year. Entering the final week of the regular season, the Red Sox were hoping to get center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury back. He suffered a compression fracture in his right foot, and Boston went 10-5 during his absence. They need him in the leadoff spot. Getting Jacoby back is probably as big a key as anything, Farrell said recently. That 95-62 record on Monday (.605) not only was the best in the American League but the best in all of baseball. Close behind was the AL West Division Champion Oakland Athletics at 93-63 (.596). Oaklands resurgence this year is worthy of a new chapter in Money Ball, a bestseller based on General Manager Billy Beanes use of sabermetrics to build a winning As team a decade ago. The book was later made into a popular movie. But for now, the accolades must go to the 2013 edition of the Boston Red Sox. Bonita Springs Jacobsen Winner Of 2013 Payne Stewart Award Popular local golfer Peter Jacobsen last week was named the 2013 Payne Stewart Award winner, an honor given annually to recognize a player for his sportsmanship and integrity. He joins a list of Stewart Award winners that includes Byron Nelson, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and 2012 winner Steve Stricker. He (Stewart) was a good friend of mine, Jacobsen said upon learning of the award. We did a lot of things together with our families, but mostly we competed against each other and laughed. We also played some music together, really good music. A self-taught guitarist, Jacobsen was a founding member and lead singer of Jake Trout & The Flounders, a band he formed in the mid-80s with fellow golfers Mark Lye and Stewart. They recorded two albums together.

Theiss, a Zonta member who founded the Lee County Sheriffs Human Trafficking Task Force in 2005 and later moved on to create HTAP, has focused on education and training of professionals and community leaders and prevention programs for youth. Her effective strategy of training the trainers has enabled her programs to spread regionally to Hendry, Glades, Charlotte and DeSoto counties. She is also in demand as a national speaker. One innovative HTAP program is ARTREACH which educates youth about human trafficking and empowers them to teach others through their art. The program includes eye-catching, two-sided TIPS cards aimed at youth ages 10 to 17, spelling out Trafficker Recruitment Techniques and Trafficker Avoidance Techniques. Theiss says, We need to train kids to know what the tricks are that are used to entrap them. Garcia added: One of our challenges is that young women tend to identify with their pimps, believe themselves to be in love with them, and are reluctant to turn them in or give evidence. A recent national sting by the FBI included Cape Coral as one of the target cities for human trafficking activity where three arrests were made. The Zonta Club of Sanibel-Captiva is a service organization of professionals and executives working together to improve the status of women, on the islands, in Lee County, and globally through Zonta International.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 27, 201334 S chool S martby S helley M. Greggs, NC SPDear Readers, I want to pass along some important information for those of you who have friends and family with Down syndrome. A new national registry is launching an effort to connect individuals who have Down syndrome with researchers studying the chromosomal disorder. Plans to create the registry were first announced last year after the idea emerged as one of the primary recommendations of the NIHs 2007 Down Syndrome Research Plan. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) defines Down syndrome is a set of cognitive and physical symptoms that result from having an extra chromosome 21 or an extra piece of that chromosome. It is the most common chromosomal cause of mild to moderate intellectual disabilities. People with Down syndrome also have some distinct physical features, such as a flat-looking face, and they are at risk for a number of other health conditions. The registry is a free, confidential online database known as DS-Connect and is designed to collect health information on a voluntary basis from those with Down syndrome or family members who sign up on their behalf. Participants can anonymously compare their health experiences with those of others in the registry and users can also volunteer to be contacted to take part in research studies. According to Yvonne Maddox, deputy director of the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development at the National Institutes of Health, which developed the registry, The Down syndrome community has voiced a strong need for a centralized, secure database to store and share health information. DS-Connect fills that need, and helps link individuals with Down syndrome to the doctors and scientists working to improve their health and quality of life. Maddox emphasized that there is a need for registry participants of all ages. Right now, we dont have much data on older individuals with Down syndrome, and thats been a problem, she said. People with Down syndrome are living longer, and researchers and physicians will require information about the health issues and needs of these individuals to make recommendations about their health care. For more information on this new registry or to join this new register go to https://dsconnect.nih.gov/. Ms. Greggs is adjunct faculty at Edison State College where she teaches psychology and education courses. She is also Nationally Certified School Psychologist and consultant for School Consultation Services, a private educational consulting company.

35 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 27, 2013 One of the most difficult things that young parents face is to decide who might fill their shoes if the worst happens both parents die. In order to do this, parents need to write a will that designates at a minimum who should be the guardian for their minor children. Choosing who to name can cause a lot of strife. The obvious choices include parents or siblings. But which parents? Obviously age should be considered. If the young parents have a 2-year-old and a newborn infant, and the grandparents on the fathers side are in their 70s and the grandparents on the mothers side are in their 60s, all things being equal, her parents are the better choice simply because they are more likely to be around long enough to raise the children. But even so, this means that folks who were counting on peaceful retirement years are going to be in the midst of child rearing just as their own physical and mental capabilities are not what they used to be. The next choice might be siblings. I remember that when my wife and I were discussing our siblings, we felt like none of them would raise our children the same as we would. We created checklists naming the attributes and faults that we perceived each of our siblings and their spouses to have in an attempt to find the better match. Ive had some clients even name close friends. While friends might seem to be a better fit than some family members, one has to both really evaluate whether this is asking too much and also have very frank and open discussions to determine if the friend is really willing and able to step into this most difficult role. After naming guardians (and alternates), the next course of action is to make sure that your will contains trust provisions to call for the distribution of your monies, funds and life insurance proceeds to provide food, clothing and educational expenses, among other things. Its not usually a good idea to name the guardians as the trustees over the funds. I would suggest that you include some checks and balances in the system by naming different family members to fill that role, or if there is enough of an estate counting the life insurance, a trust company might be the best idea. I was once familiar with a family where the guardians (who were also serving as trustees) took money from the childrens trust fund to build an addition onto their home since they needed the extra room. The proper course of action would have been to charge the children rent and to use that rent to pay for the addition. By paying outright for the addition, the guardians actually created equity in their home at the expense of the children. While they meant no harm, this issue could have been dealt with other ways. Once the guardianship and trustee issues are taken care of in the will and trust documents, it doesnt hurt to include provisions about keeping both the fathers side of the family and the mothers side of the family involved in the kids lives. Children who have lost both parents might lose connection with one side of the family or the other. A provision to demonstrate the intent might read like this: It is our intent that the guardians of our children see to it that our children maintain contact with both sides of the family, including holidays, graduations and such other important life cycle events. To that end, we direct our trustees to pay for reasonable travel and lodging expenses to ensure that our children continue to develop and maintain relationships from both sides our family. Much thought should go into the naming of guardians and trustees for minor children. I didnt even mention how the trust funds should be spent, or when the children might be allowed to control all or some portion of their funds as they grow into adults. The first step, however, is to create a will. Without that, young parents are leaving everything to chance. Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at www.sbshlaw.com.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 27, 201336 A CPA spends years preparing formoments just like these.Call 239.472.1323When my business was impacted by the BP oil spill, I turned to my CPA rst to help me organize the nancial records needed to make an accurate claim. by Jeanie TinchDesigned to meet the needs of todays homeowners who want to expand their living spaces outdoors, Sunbrella fabrics are among todays most important fabric choices. So, if youre wanting to take advantage of the great outdoors in your own backyard, utilizing Sunbrella fabrics in your new decor might just fit the bill! Originally designed and used in awnings, and then boating, Sunbrella fabrics have been in existence since 1961. And as todays homeowners began creating additional living spaces outdoors, Sunbrella fabrics began taking on a whole new look. Featuring many fabulous designs, colors and patterns, youre sure to find a fabric that will fit your new decor beautifully. Even before green became a prominent element in home decorating products, the manufacturers of Sunbrella fabrics were committed to exceeding industry standards for environmental stewardship. Here are a few ways that Sunbrella fabrics protect air, earth and water while producing beautiful, high performing textiles: 1. Sunbrella creates no wastewater from dyeing. Their unique coloring process avoids harmful effluents associated with conventional dyeing processes. 2. Sunbrella fabrics are extremely durable. Believe it or not, their lifespan is two to 10 times longer than conventional fabrics. 3. Sunbrella fabrics offer significant sun protection. Umbrellas, awnings and shades made from Sunbrella fabrics actually aid in the prevention of suninduced damage to the skin. Not only do you receive a bit of personal protection, but these fabrics will not fade or rot from the harsh rays of the sun. 4. Sunbrella features a soil and stain-resistant finish, so its very easy to clean. You can spot wash your fabrics by sponging briskly with a soapy solution of natural soap in lukewarm water, Then, simply rinse thoroughly with clean water to remove the soap and let the fabric air dry. 5. These solution-dyed yarns do not promote mildew growth. However, mildew may grow on dirt and other foreign substances that are not removed from the fabric. To remove mildew stains, prepare a mild solution of one cup bleach plus two caps full of a natural soap per gallon of water. Spray on entire area, and allow it to soak in. Sponge thoroughly with clean water and let air dry. Youll find this fabulous fabric available for use throughout your home. From decks, patios and poolside to dining rooms, family rooms and even the kitchen and bath. So, if refreshing your outdoor decor is in your future, why not give this fabulous fabric a look? You wont be disappointed. Jeanie Tinch is an interior designer on Sanibel/Captiva Islands. She can be reached at email@example.com.

The other training involves exercises performed in gulf waters. I try to make it fun for the crew theyre thinking, Hey, its a day to go swimming, said Barrett. But its really a test. These exercises let you know your own limitations. According to Barrett, the water training at the rec center pool included: meters Following those exercises, firefighters were required to use their additional water gear including swim fins, snorkel performing a team building exercise: brick twice across the length of the pool. Its a tough exercise but its supposed to be tough, added Barrett. Its supposed to be tiring. Firefighters taking part in last Thursdays water training exercises included Tony Fontaine, John Griffith, Josh Koza, Joe Nygaard and Ron Ritchie. Firefighter Ron Ritchie completes one of the training exercises equipped with swim fins, mask and snorkel From page 1Wildlife Drivewhere it was no longer pervious and had become so rough that our cycling visitors could no longer comfortably ride the drive, said Wildlife Refuge Manager Paul Tritaik. It was supposed to last at least it was severely crumbling and functionally impervious. The new asphalt surface will extend years, Tritaik said. Following the official reopening on October 1, Wildlife Drive will remain open to the public during normal operating hours with regular entrance fees. The drive closes on Fridays for maintenance and to give wildlife a disturbance-free day. With the reopening of Wildlife Drive, the public will now also have full access to the new Wildlife Education Boardwalk that opened last month off of Indigo Trail. We appreciate everyones patience with the Wildlife Drive closure, said Tritaik. We know it has been an inconvenience to our loyal nature-lovers, but we hope it will be worth the wait.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 27, 201338 Eden Energy MedicineEar Or Eye Infections Or Low Back Pain? Trace Kidney Meridianby Karen L. Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAML(03-12)Kidney, a Yin meridian, partners with bladder meridian and together they govern the ears. Because they also govern teeth, bones and fluid, they play an important role with the eyes (comprised mostly of fluid). The physical location of kidneys in your lower back give direct evidence of imbalances in kidney if there is lower back pain above the waist. Physical manifestations of kidney imbalances might include: acne; swollen and weak ankles; bone problems; ear infections; eye problems; hardening of arteries; insomnia; ovarian problems (kidney controls the reproductive system); sweaty feet or toothaches. Notice how each of these symptoms is related to teeth, bones or fluid. As a reminder, view the August 9 and 16 columns, since the basics of tracing are set forth. Meridian Flow Wheel Time of Day Kidneys meridians high tide is 5 to 7 p.m. We always begin and end by tracing central and governing meridians before starting to trace the other meridians. If you begin tracing your meridians at 5 30 p.m., then begin with kidney. 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 kidney if you have some of the symptoms listed in the opening paragraph above. Or if you experience rheumatism, difficulties with urination, difficulties with menses, hot flashes, pain in the ovaries; miscarriages; impotence; low sexual interest, weak bones and bone marrow, this is another indication of bladder imbalance. Affirmation for this meridian is I step forward with courage (while buzzing K 27 points)! 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 The beginning point of kidney meridian is on the bottom of the foot below and in the middle of the ball of the foot, and the end point is K 27. See insert of pathway below. Place your fingers under the ball of each foot. Draw your fingers up behind the ankle bone and make a clockwise circle. Move your palms up the inside middle of your leg, continuing straight up the front of your body to the K 27 points. Now buzz these points vigorously. Thats it. You just traced bladder! Flushing Or Tracing The Meridian 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 experiencing pain or disease in the area of a meridian, it is likely that removing the energy from the meridian will provide relief. If it does, then trace it backwards three times, but never trace heart backwards. If it seems there is not enough energy in your meridian then trace it forward three times. If you feel better, this is what was needed. Experience the impact of the energetic shifts. 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. You are set. Keep this column as a reminder of how to trace kidney while you learn the next eight meridians over the next several months. Have fun with your energy! Next weeks topic is Hormonal Imbalance, Carpal Tunnel or Breast Soreness Trace Circulation Sex 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.

Dear Mom & Me, I am fed up being treated as if I am an inconvenience at my medical center. I would leave in a flash but no one else around here takes Medicare. I am not a nuisance, having been there only once in a year. I called and, after going through all of their hoops on their telephone system, I finally reached a live one. She asked my name and birth date and then asked, Why do you want to see the doctor, whats wrong with you? The earliest appointment was in six weeks, and then she said, If youre not satisfied, call 911 or go to the hospital emergency. It is bad enough being old, but being abused along with it is getting hard to take. Is it like this where you live? Doris Dear Doris, Medical care is an industry, a very complex industry. To stay in business, medical practices need more revenue coming in than expenses going out. Unfortunately, the strategies for reducing expenses include reducing the number of support staff; using technology, i.e. phone routing systems to increase productivity, minimum education requirements for staff and increasing the number of patients seen per day. What all of this seems to mean to patients is that we have become work units, tasks and to some office staff, interruptions in their productivity. To the credit of some offices I have found, the physicians and support staff have found a way to practice medicine and run a business in a way that does not forget the patient. I hope you can find a similar office. Pryce Dear Doris, Exactly the same this seems to be the way modern medical offices are going. No longer will physicians know our name or even care because it is only a business. However, some people do have physicians who do care, will call on the phone and run their offices the old fashioned way. My husband goes out of state and has a team of physicians who are wonderful and it is no wonder Johns Hopkins has been rated number one for patient care for about the last 20 years.

39 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 27, 2013deaRPharmacistYes! Yes! OH NO!by Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: I get headaches during sex. Its not all the time, but Im worried. It takes the fun out of it. My doctor said dont worry. But I do. EL, Dunnellon, Florida Orgasmic headaches or plain old sex headaches affect about one in 100 people. The pain often begins at the base of the brain and radiates to the front of your head at any point. It can happen any time during lovemaking. Most people get a sudden, sharp headache right at the Big O, as in orgasm. Yes! Yes! OH NO! The headache comes on suddenly and its severe. I suspect migraineurs and clusterheads are more prone to these, although sex headaches have no aura, stars, blurriness, no halo, nothing... and theyre short-lived. If its postural, the pain will reoccur as soon as you get out of bed and stand up but then it goes away quickly. Lots of you have sworn off sex. These headaches dont always happen to people who get lucky, they can also be brought on by exercise, coughing or exertion. Scary. You probably think you burst an aneurysm! Fortunately, its just a headache, but do all the tests and brain scans your physician orders okay? A Russian study evaluated 19 participants who suffered from sex headaches. The researchers discovered that 58 percent developed headaches during foreplay but before orgasm, and 26 percent of them developed the headaches during orgasm. Some participants developed their headache post-orgasm. Most headaches lasted for several minutes, although one unlucky persons did linger for 24 hours! The researchers suspect that sex headaches are caused from a disturbance of venous outflow and dysfunction of antinociceptive systems. Essentially, something is amiss with your blood vessel around your brain and your pain perception. Experts also wonder if it happens from an increase in blood (arterial) pressure combined with tension from the big event. That makes sense to my good friend, Douglas Hall, MD, who has four decades experience in obstetrics and gynecology. He says, Endothelial dysfunction with low nitric oxide (NO) can cause vasoconstriction with resulting headaches. You can check NO levels with urine testing strips. NO is stimulated by estrogen and thyroid so you might have to increase these hormones to a physiologically normal level in order to prevent the headaches. Other ways to relieve these include the following (ask your doctor): *Take an anti-inflammatory about one hour before the big event, such as 500mg acetaminophen or 400mg ibuprofen. *Dont be so active during sex, take it easier if you know what I mean. *Maybe race a little faster to the finish line? If you linger for an hour to get there, your blood pressure remains higher, for longer. *Prescribed beta blockers (propanolol) are sometimes used, but not with great success. Foods with natural beta blocking activity include bananas, potatoes, raisins, beans, celery, citrus, spinach and chamomile. *Progesterone. Its the pregnancy hormone, but you should only apply this cream, or take pills if you are low. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: How does our self-worth affect how we manage our stress?A: Our selfworth affects how we manage stress. We all have different levels of self worth. The development of our real self-worth comes from the completeness and wholeness within ourselves. The amount of self-worth that you assign yourself is of great importance. It is important to learn to appreciate yourself every day. The key is to learn to love and honor yourself. Learn to listen to and trust your inner-guidance system, that inner knowing that softly guides you to the proper action for the situation you are facing. Your inner-guidance (intuition) system will not lead you astray. We all have an inner knowing. It can come as a hunch to take a certain course of action. You may feel a strong sensation in your body to avoid a situation. Pay attention to the messages you are receiving. I often hear from women that they blame themselves for turning their head and ignoring what their gut feelings were telling them. This is common, especially in relationship issues. At the beginning of a relationship, we are all on our best behavior. There may be little red flags the first few months of the relationship; however, those red flags are quickly ignored because there are too many good things going on. After the fact, when things dont work out, we think, I should have paid more attention to his or her self-absorption, drinking too much, gambling, overspending, stinginess when it comes to the others needs, not following through on things that were planned, etc. We blame ourselves. Why? Low self-worth. This is how we were programmed. Most likely, this goes back to our family of origin. Since our early years, we have heard our families tell us how, and what, to think about ourselves. Consider listening to yourself. Stop using low self-worth as an excuse not to live life to its fullest with the utmost self-confidence. Learn to accept situations as they are and consider what is the best appropriate action. Perhaps talking with clergy, a professional counselor or trusted friend can be a start. So why not choose to trust yourself? People who have a genuine sense of self worth are able to relax and live in the present. They handle stressors with ease. Pay attention to the people in your life who seem to be comfortable with who they are. They have high self-worth and are not overwhelmed with stress and tension. They live in the present moment and do what is necessary for that moment. Now think about those who are stressed out. How would you rate their self-worth? This is not to say that one has to be stress free to have a good selfimage. Again, we know that some stress can be helpful because it motivates us to take risks and achieve our goals. Feelings of self-worth can come and go, depending on how well we accept what is going on in our lives. This is a part of being human. Having a sense of purpose in life and living life with a sense of purpose bolsters self-worth. When you allow your self-worth to be compromised, you are not living constructively and stress occurs. Take each moment to feel worthy of your self and your life. Craig R.
