The City of Sanibel will close the pier from 10:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. to enable easy access beneath the pier. Dive Master Nathan Engler will coordinate and lead the group of six student divers as part of the groups project requirements for their civic engagement class at Florida Gulf Coast University. SCCF is sponsoring this cleanup as part of the Keep Lee County Beautiful Monofilament Madness event. Monofilament fishing line and marine debri can harm sea turtles, birds and many other critters. If you have marine debris stories to share call Dee Serage at the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation, 472-2329.

See page 21 for story and more photographs. Fish C aught Family Fun Day C ancelledBecause of the lapse in appropriations that has caused the federal government shutdown, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced that the annual Family Fun Day, which is the traditional kick-off to Ding Darling Days on Sunday, October 20 at JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, is cancelled. Other events associated with the weeklong Ding Darling Days and sponsored by the Ding Darling Wildlife Society will be held as scheduled. National wildlife refuges, facilities and operations across the nation remained shuttered as a result of lapse in funding for the fiscal year that began on October 1. The lack of funding affects roughly 200 field stations in the Southeast Region including all refuges, national fish hatcher ies, fish and wildlife coordination offices, and ecological services and migratory bird field offices. The Southeast Region is made up of 10 states Arkansas, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee, along with Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands in the Caribbean. In the meantime, citizens can monitor www.dingdarlingdays.com, www.dingdarlingsociety.org and the Ding Darling Wildlife Society Facebook page for status updates about Ding Darling Days. Cancellations of wildlife-related recreational activities including hunting, fishing and environmental education are being evaluated as the shutdown continues and decisions are being made based on logistical requirements and the time needed to support them. The region and its field stations are considering cancellation only for those activities and events where the ongoing shutdown dictates that the Service can no longer carry out the logistical requirements necessary to hold each event, hunt or other scheduled activity. Decisions about rescheduling any of these activities will not be made until employees return to work. Additional cancellations for activities set to occur beyond October 20 will be considered in the days ahead if necessary based on timing of the governments reopening and logistical requirements. The mission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is working with others to conserve, protect, and enhance fish, wildlife, plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 18, 20132 Uhlhorn Sworn In As Postmaster Of Sanibelby Jeff LysiakDuring a brief ceremony and meet-and-greet on October 9, Mary Uhlhorn was sworn in as the new postmaster of Sanibel Island, where she will oversee mail delivery to 6,000 residential and business addresses as well as 1,800 PO boxes. USPS Manager of Post Office Operations Leroy Middleton conducted the swearing in ceremony, which also included Uhlhorns husband, Jason, who held the Bible during her oath of office. A crowd of approximately 15 post office employees, island dignitaries and invited guests witnessed the installation. This is my first postmaster position, and I intend to serve this community as well as I can, said Uhlhorn, who began her career with the USPS in 1987. Im very, very excited about this. After being sworn in, Middleton presented Uhlhorn with a framed proclamation signed by the U.S. Postmaster General Patrick R. Donahoe. In 1999, Uhlhorn became supervisor of customer service at the Cincinnati Downtown Post Office. One year later, she became acting manager of the Symmes (Ohio) Post Office. Uhlhorn raised her daughter, Danielle, by herself for 11 years. In 2006, when Danielle was ready to go to college at Florida Gulf Coast University, Uhlhorn transferred to West Palm Beach, Florida. Earlier this year, Danielle graduated sigma cum laude from Northern Kentucky University while Uhlhorn got married and transferred to Sanibel, realizing that she had found paradise. I am grateful for the opportunity to work for such a great company, Uhlhorn added. I have a wonderful life, successful child and great career thanks to the United States Postal Service.

5 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 18, 2013Community House Announces Its First Themed Party Of The Season The Community House will continue its series of themed dance parties this season starting on Friday, November 8 with a salute to the USO shows of the 1940s. Music and dancing evoke that period, with swing music for the jitterbugs and ballads for romantic slow-dancing. Prominent local DJ Randy Ray, who was a big hit at their Wedding Party Dance last season, will spin the tunes, evoking the USO radio shows of the World War II era. Reinforcing the theme, Bob Hope and Marilyn Monroe impersonators will put in an appearance to entertain the troops.

Anyone who has any military photos or memorabilia is invited to drop them off prior to the dance to add to the decorations. Also, anyone who can still fit into their old uniform or party dress from the era should dust it off and wear it to the dance to help set the theme. Each of this years dance parties will once again feature and raise funds for a non-profit partner. For Remembering The USO, the event partner is the Lee Coast Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America. Snacks and beverages for the evening will be light, so eat before you arrive.

Barrett Anding, 36, perished on the evening of Monday, October 7 in a single-car accident near his home. Barrett was born in Trenton, New Jersey and grew up in Washington Crossing, Pennsylvania. Barrett moved to Sanibel with his wife, Dayna Narenkivicius Anding, and his daughter, Jacqueline Shea Anding, in 2009. He is survived by his wife and daughter, and also by his parents, Joseph D. and Leslie Paine Anding of Sanibel, and his sister Devan Anding Norris of Port Orange, Florida. Barrett graduated high school from St. Josephs Preparatory School in Philadelphia and went on to become a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America. Barrett was a chef and restaurant manager. He was a beloved member of the restaurant communities on both Sanibel Island and on Fire Island in New York, and was most recently working at the Sundial Resort on Sanibel.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 18, 201312 Walsh Family FarewellOn Sunday, October 20, Sanibel Community Church will celebrate nine years of ministry that Youth Pastor Tom Walsh has had on Sanibel. Pastor Tom and his family will be honored following the Sunday morning services with a picnic open to the community, followed by a short program. A love offering will be received to bless the Walsh family as they transition to Denver, Colorado. Pastor Tom Walsh has accepted a call as chief operating officer with Worship and the Word Movement, headquartered in Denver, Colorado. For more information, visit www.worshipandtheword.com. He will officially begin at that position on January 1, 2014. Pastor Tom, his wife Sara and their children have all been an integral part of Gods work on the islands. Pastor Toms ministry has extended far beyond the ministries of the church, in the community and Southwest Florida. He has also served on a national level with various youth organizations. Under his leadership, the church has seen the Youth Ministry (H2O) become a source of water of life for thirsty souls. He and Sara have brought a passion and authenticity to ministry among youth and their families. The ministry has grown deeper and broader under their leadership. Pastor Tom has also been a key member of the ministry team at SCC, serving more than as youth pastor, ministering to people of all ages. A search committee has been appointed and the process has begun to seek to fill the position of youth pastor at Sanibel Community Church. According to Senior Pastor Dr. Daryl Donovan, Cloning has been considered. Tom has done a fantastic job! All are welcome at Sanibel Community Church on Sunday, October 20 at noon to celebrate and bless the Walsh family and their ministry on Sanibel. Sanibel Community Church is located at 1740 Periwinkle Way (next to Jerrys Market). For more information, call 4722684. Fall Festival & Pumpkin Sale CancelledThe Sanibel Christian Preschools Fall Festival & Pumpkin Sale, which had been scheduled for Sunday, October 20, has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. Check out the preschools Facebook page for future events. Church To Provide Test Site For New CurriculumThe Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ has been chosen as a test site for a new adult curriculum that explores the major ways we imagine our place in nature. This study called Sacred Place, Sacred Role addresses the notion of stewardship and presents new images concerning the human role in nature. The course materials have been prepared by the Kirbas Institute and feature presentations by Paul J. Kirbas, philosopher Nancey Murphy, NASA astronaut Jennifer Wiseman, Oxford theologian Robin Gibbons, Cambridge scientist Dennis Alexander and others. The course will be led by the churchs Senior Pastor, the Rev. John H. Danner, PhD, and will be held on Wednesdays, October 23 through November 20. Two identical sessions will be held each week at 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. Sessions will explore the historical conflict between religion and science, and show evidence that in many ways this conflict has been inflated with groundless accusations. Additionally, a model for building needed bridges between science and religion will be explored; the meaning of sacredness will be defined as it applies to nature; and students will examine the human role in nature which brings together the discoveries of science and religion. The course is free and open to the public, and will include an opportunity for students to evaluate the course and its materials. To preregister for the course, call the church office at 472-0497.

17 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 18, 2013 CROW Case Of The Week: Odor-able Baby Skunksby Patricia MolloySeveral baby stiped skunks (Mephitis mephitis) were recently admitted to CROW as orphans. Examinations performed by Dr. Heather determined that each was in good health. Baby skunks, called kits, have very fine black fur with a long white stripe reaching from its face to the tip of its bushy tail. No two stripe patterns are alike. Never far from water, these nocturnal creatures inhabit grassy fields, open woods and farmland. While they do not hibernate in the winter, they have been known to slumber inside dens for a month or more, living off of their accumulated body fat. Due to the fact that the striped skunk has short legs, out-running a predator is rarely effective. To defend itself, it will first arch its back, raise its tail and stomp the ground with its front feet. If the display is ignored, it will then turn its back to face the predator and spray the animal with a foul-smelling chemical called methyl mercaptan that emanates from glands located near the animals tail. A striped skunk can accurately hit a target as far away as 12 to 20 feet. As with the famously amorous Pep Le Pew, my first encounter with a skunk was love at first sight. Before one of CROWs students gently wrapped the youngster in a soft towel to prepare it for its first bottle feeding of the morning, she warned me to be still and quiet so as not to alarm the kit. You do realize that even the little ones can spray, right? The striped skunk kits at CROW are currently housed in a separate room in the nursery to avoid any stinky mishaps with other babies. The staff and students bottle feed them several times a day to ensure healthy weight gain. One of the greatest challenges facing the staff at CROW is imprinting. Imprinting occurs when a wild animal becomes accustom to humans and sees them as friends and/or food sources; it is potentially fatal to release an imprinted animal back into the wild. Dr. Heather ensures that the team of veterinarians, students, interns and volunteers are thoroughly trained in the delicate balance of performing life-saving medical procedures, providing necessary medications and feeding the patients while being careful to not domesticate them. Humans are always a young, wild animals last hope for survival, never its best hope, she noted. Once they have graduated to solid foods, Dr. Heather will relocate the striped skunks to an outdoor enclosure until they are old enough to be released back into the wild. CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Inc.) is a non-profit wildlife hospital providing veterinary care for native and migratory wildlife from our local area. The hospital accepts patients seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mail donations to P.O. Box 150, Sanibel, FL 33957. Call 472-3644 or visit www.crowclinic.org.

MERCURY MARINER JOHNSON EVINRUDE SUZUKI YAMAHA OMC I/O'S MERCRUISER Serving Sanibel & Captiva For Life Your Bottom Specialist Call on Paint Prices 1 Options To Save The Dayby Capt. Matt MitchellFar from per fect mangrove tides this past week led anglers to explore other fishing options besides just the usual snook and redfish action. I managed to keep the rods bent most days by catching a trout, mangrove snapper and gag grouper. We did get a few reds and snook here and there but that bite was cer tainly not on fire. Some areas that were great for trout this week were Red Light Shoal and Fosters Point on North Captiva. Working sand holes in three to four feet of water, it was amazing how many trout these places were holding. A live shiner fished under a popping cork rig was deadly. Another option was a Crystal Minnow or Skitter Walk. With clearer water than we have seen for months, the trout bite has been going off. Once in a grassy area, start out by fan-casting around the boat into the sand holes until you locate the fish. Some days it would take a little moving around out on the flat then one little sand hole could hold as many as a dozen or more trout of all sizes. Though lots of these fish are under the 15-inch minimum there were some 20-inch-plus trout in the mix. Getting a limit of trout generally did not take too long and catching fish on just about every cast is not a bad way to spend an hour or so. Catching limits of mangrove snapper was also a good option when the redfish just would not cooperate for me. Although mangrove snapper could be found on just about every dock from the mouth of the river throughout the sound, the fish shacks in the northern sound held some of the bigger ones, up to around 15 inches. A free-lined shiner on a small circle hook with 20# fluorocarbon leader was the way to go. Pitching a bat full of stunned shiners around the pilings would fire up these hungry snapper, often getting them exploding on the surface. If youre looking for a fresh fish dinner, mangrove snapper are one of our better eating fish. Gag grouper fishing in Captiva Pass and some of my favorite channel markers also kept anglers busy. Lots of these grouper are on the smaller side but are a blast to catch. I dont think we have a fish that swims in our waters that hits a bait harder than these shallow water grouper. The trench on the outside of Captiva Pass held both red and gag groupers. To locate them you had to be on the ledges and better structure. On the faster moving tides i would slow the drift by keeping the boat in gear giving us a little longer time over the good bottom. Double hookups were common with a few bigger fish in the mix. The best action came right around the tide change when the water slowed and you could keep your baits in the structure longer. Snook fishing on the lower water was pretty average this week, resulting in a few smaller snook caught. Deep water mangrove channels and docks held the snook on the last stages of the falling tide. Lots of places I have been fishing in the mouth of the river are holding some real giants and as the tides get better this week I think I can coax them into eating. The big snook taken on my boat this week was a 32-incher caught in the mouth of the river on a live grunt. Ron Bushbaum from Naples was the lucky angler who caught the quality upper-slotsized fish. He fishes with a Rotary Club group that stays at Jensens Marina in October every year. As Im writing this the daytime high water is already much better for redfish than we fished in all week. A few places that held some lower water redfish were the wall at Redfish Pass, the T dock and the docks on the south side of Captiva Pass. These places for me were very hit and miss although worth a quick stop with either zero or hero type action. I did get on one good school of reds midweek at the southern end of Buck Key. After catching lots of trout, grouper and some good snapper for a University of Florida research program, we finally located a good school of redfish on the lower tide phase. While sat out from the mangroves in some deeper sand holes, the redfish started blowing up on our baits on the surface for about 10 minutes. As we fought fish, other redfish would follow the hooked fish in towards the boat. As quick as it happened though it was over and the school moved on. Most of these were over the slot size. The more you fish the more you learn what to do to catch fish when conditions including wind, weather and tides are far from right. Often switching the target species is a good option until things get right to catch the more glamorous species. When things are tough trout and snapper can save a trip. Capt.

21 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 18, 2013 On Saturday, Paul Rose took two of his three sons, Matthew and Sammy, as well as Andre Arensman and his son Ben, all from Sanibel, out on his Boston Whaler for some offshore fishing about 40 miles off Sanibel. Apart from seeing a lot of flying fish, dolphins and a huge loggerhead sea tur tle, after a while the fish started biting as well. Everyone on board caught at least one keeper red grouper, ranging in size from 23 to 33 inches. Paul also landed a beautiful 28-inch red snapper. A few lane snappers and vermillion snappers completed the catch. The fish made for some colorful pictures.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 18, 201322 Birds Eye ViewMy A lligator Biteby Mark Bird WestallWhen I started this column back in February, 2012, I mentioned that one of the stories I had to tell was about the time I was bit by a 12-foot alligator back in 1988. I have hesitated telling that story for two reasons. One is because of the fear and hatred of large representatives of the species that has been accepted by the community since implementation of the states nuisance alligator management program in 2004. I worry that my story will just reinforce those fears and justify the new program even more. And two, I hate the sensationalizing of the dangers presented to the public by wild animals by programs like the Discovery Channel and National Geographic. If I tell my story, am I any different than them? Ive decided to go ahead and tell my story because the life I have lived ever since I arrived on the island back in 1977 has been one of adventure, wonderment and sometimes danger; but mostly one filled with a commitment to the idea that people and wildlife (even the potentially dangerous ones) can live together in har mony. I dont tell this story to thrill the reading public; I tell it because that was how life used to be on Sanibel and those who lived here were willing to accept the risks. But before I tell the story about me being bitten, I have to present the prequel that happened before that fateful day and it will help you understand why I made the choices I made later on. In previous articles for this column, I have described how Sanibel came to be involved in its own alligator management program. The alligator was an endangered species at the time and the state really didnt like having to drive all the way out here every time some wayward alligator ended up in someones driveway while out looking for a mate. Thus, I became a state licensed nuisance alligator handler. In the summer on Sanibel, when temperatures are higher, alligators need to eat more and, being primarily fishermen, they would regularly go into the Gulf of Mexico at night. If they were still there come morning, they almost always drew a crowd of onlookers. So, I got a call from the police department one day that there was a huge alligator in the surf by Sundial Resort threatening the tourists by slowly swimming towards shore, looking at the people on the beach for a few minutes, and then disappearing only to show up again further offshore. Since I was the only licensed alligator mover still left on the island, would I come out as soon as possible and remove the threat? Well, I knew immediately what was happening. The gator wasnt stalking the beachcombers. He was simply trying to get back home to the freshwater wetlands in the interior of the island and he wasnt about to walk up onto the beach with all those dangerous humans standing there. Sure enough, when I got there, the crowd was following the gator up and down the beach, impeding his route to safety. So I had the police implement a little crowd control and tried to approach the gator in the shallow water. Hoping to get close enough to lasso him, I had my rope ready, but every time I was just about ready to toss the rope, he would make a big splash and retreat out to deeper water. While I was making these frustrating attempts to capture him, I noticed that he was blind in one eye (something that we saw occasionally on the island; probably from fights with other gators) and that he always kept his good eye facing the beach when he would surface offshore. So I got the bright idea to go further down the beach, walk out into the gulf beyond the gator and approach him from his blind side. With the gator watching everyone on the beach, I snuck up on his blind side and got to within an arms length of him, whereby, I slowly started slipping the noose over his head. Now, it shouldnt take you too long to realize how incredibly stupid this plan was. I didnt think about how much danger I was putting myself in until I was just in the process of passing the noose past his good eye. It suddenly dawned on me that he was between me and the beach! At that moment I thought to myself, What if he sees the rope sliding past his face with his good eye and decides, once again, to make a hasty retreat out to deeper water? Wouldnt that put me directly in his escape path?!! Luckily, he never moved and I was able to get the noose completely over his head and move a little distance away before giving a jerk and capturing him. To give you an idea how big he was, we couldnt drag him up across the beach so my wife went and got her car and we tied the rope to the frame of her car and dragged him across Middle Gulf Drive and let him go in the Panama Canal (the big, deep canal surrounding Beachview Golf Course). With that one stupid, successful attempt at approaching a half blind alligator up close, the stage was set for me to stupidly repeat the technique under similar circumstances a few years later.

Ding Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge (DDWS) supports the refuge internship program by paying living stipends for several interns each year, supplementing staff cutbacks due to federal budget constraints.. Rainbolt graduated in May from Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida, with a degree in environmental studies and minors in human development, psychology and Spanish. She began volunteering at the refuge two years ago. I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the way everyone worked together, she said. It is such a nurturing environment. Rainbolt will be assisting with education programs at the refuge and outreach at schools and community functions. I am extremely excited to teach children and anyone who is interested in natural settings and what we have to learn from our environment, said Rainbolt. The refuge itself is a beautiful place and my fellow co-workers make it better. Everyone gives great advice on what to expect day by day and makes themselves available if I need any help.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 18, 201324 Plant SmartParsons Juniperby Gerri ReavesFlorida-friendly Parsons juniper (Juniperus chinensis Parsonii) is a mutation of Chinese juniper, a native of Asia, Siberia and possibly Japan. A member of the cypress family, this ground-hugging species has several attributes that make it a popular residential landscape choice. First of all, it remains two to three feet high, so it doesnt require frequent hedgetrimming. With time, it develops a soft full shape thats much prettier than a flat-top. The fine-textured blue-green or grayish leaves have a feathery look. Those leaves develop from scales on the twig into prickly needles, forming dense evergreen foliage on flat branches. The flowers are inconspicuous. Parsons juniper is drought tolerant and adapts to acidic to slightly alkaline soil. The soil must be well drained. Salt tolerance makes it a good choice for coastal areas. For the densest foliage, give it full sun. It might take a year or two for it to fill out symmetrically, but it will gradually spread to as much as 10 feet wide. While Parsons juniper is Floridafriendly and low-maintenance, consider including native evergreens, such as red cedar (Juniperus virginiana), in your landscape, too. Sources: Waterwise: South Florida Landscapes; Florida, My Eden by Frederic B. Stresau; and floridata.com.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 18, 201330 Cats Take Center Stage At Broadway Palmby Di SaggauFurry felines are all over the stage, hanging from the an old roller coaster, atop a gigantic wooden carousel horse, roaming through the audience. Thats no surprise because now showing at Broadway Palm is Cats, Andrew Lloyd Webbers fantastic musical, the second-longest-running Broadway show in history, behind Phantom of the Opera. I love Cats... always have and always will. Its a show with non-stop singing and dancing that will leave you wanting more. Amy Marie McCleary not only choreographed the show, she directed it and the result is a show that entertains from start to finish. The cast is exceptional with names like Rum Tum Tugger, Grizabella, Bustopher Jones, Mr. Mistoffelees, Rumpleteazer and Old Deuteronomy, to name just a few. I was especially taken with Drew Starks sexy, playful Rum Tum Tugger, and the house stopping rendition of Memory sung by Annie Freres as Grizabella. A magical dance number by Michael Phillips as Mr. Mistoffelees is another highlight. The dancers take on ballet, tap, modern dance and acrobatic numbers. The talent is amazing. Its the night of the Jellicle Ball and an abandoned amusement park is taken over by a special breed of cats known as Jellicle Cats. The clans elder, Old Deuteronomy, will choose the most deserving cat to be reborn. Most of us know who that will be, but its still a treat watching all the Jellicles vie for that position as they reveal their own personalities. Their message is to remember they are very much like us, and by all means call them by their name. Cats with its award-winning score and flawless cast, is one not to be missed. Its playing through November 23 at Broadway Palm, Southwest Floridas Premier Dinner Theatre.

Hours will be 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday. Volunteers and staff spent the summer months organizing, planning, upgrading and cleaning the museum to ready it for what promises to be a great season. We have a lot of events planned this year, said manager Emilie Alfino. There will be training for our docents, Christmas at the Village, Twilight Talks, Calusa Day, Florida Lighthouse Day and events related to Shore Haven. Shore Haven will be under construction likely throughout the upcoming season. We suffered a number of delays getting started, said board president Dorothy Donaldson. We received our permit from the city on September 25; before that, we really couldnt do any work. Once we had that permit, the real work could get started. Like many islanders, the villages work was held up by a number of subcontractors who fell behind because of the extremely wet weather over the summer. At this point, Mabry Electric has been the only one who could get started, added Donaldson. There will be a kick-off fundraising event to help pay for the Shore Haven construction and restoration, which will initially cost close to $200,000. This event will explain and show all the changes to Shore Haven that we will be making over the next several months, Donaldson explained. And just as important, we will attempt to present a short explanation of the history of Shore Haven, so people can appreciate why it belongs in our historical village. The village operates as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with a mission to preserve, restore, share and celebrate Sanibels heritage. The village is located at 950 Dunlop Road (next to BIG ARTS). Admission is $10 for adults over 18; those under 18 and members are free. For more information, call 472-4648, visit www.sanibelmuseum.org or email info@sanibelmuseum.org.

Get out those calendars or smart phones and dont miss any of these events. By the way, its not too early to highlight your calendars for the weekend of February 15 and 16 for the Rotary Arts & Crafts Fair. Just back from New Hampshire, club speaker/chair Emily Kletzien found that the club didnt have a speaker scheduled for this weeks meeting so she filled in and presented a program on the impor tance of brain stimulation and keeping your memory muscle in shape. She outlined what she called the pillars of an active memory participating in social activities, physical and mental exercise, spiritual connection, intellectual stimulation, community service, environmental wellness, and last but vitally important, practicing stress management. She handed out an activity sheet everyone can use to keep the mind sharp. Exercise Physical activity does not just benefit your waist size, it also produces beneficial changes in your brain. Challenge your mind Try out a new hobby that will get you thinking; play a musical instrument, play Sudoku, crossword puzzles, cards or board games, learn a foreign language, reading and creative writing, woodworking, etc. Eat healthy meals and snacks What you eat has a direct impact on your brain function. Listen to some music A study published in the journal Heart & Lung found that people who listened to music while they exercised performed more than twice as well on a verbal fluency test than people who listened to no music. Sleep enough During sleep, your mental energy is restored. Dont get enough of it and important skills like planning, problem solving, learning, concentration, memory and alertness will all become more difficult. Kletzien said, The human brain is amazing. Scientists keep discovering new things about the way it works. For example, we now know that it can generate new brain cells as long as we are alive. We also know that we can learn new things as long as we are alive. It is never too late! You need mental stimulation to keep all your brain circuits active. One thing that is pretty obvious here on the islands is that islanders are lifelong learners. We are not couch potatoes. Islanders are movers and shakers and believe that the energy you extend outward revitalizes the mind, soul and spirit. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club is a prime example of a place where our members can find a place to channel activities that increase blood flow to the mind, body and soul. We invite you to come find this out for yourself by joining us at one of our upcoming Friday morning meetings at The Dunes Golf & Tennis Club; 7 a.m. breakfast, 7:30 meeting and speaker program. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets at 7 a.m. every Friday at The Dunes Golf and Tennis Club, 949 Sand Castle Road. If you have any questions regarding Rotary, e-mail President Scot Congress at scot@scongress.com.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 18, 201310B David Ortiz Proved Once Again Why He Is The Greatest Post-Season Hitter In History Of The Red Soxby Ed FrankBaseball in October! With one swing of the bat last Sunday night, David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox proved there is nothing more exciting. Big Papi added to his lore as the greatest post-season hitter in Red Sox history when he blasted the first pitch from Detroit closer Joaquin Benoit over the right field fence at Fenway Park for a grand slam home run in the bottom of the eighth inning to lift his team to a 5-5 tie. As we all know by now, Boston went on to win the game 6-5 in the bottom of the ninth inning to tie the American League Championship Series, 1-1. The dictionary does not contain enough adjectives to adequately describe Big Papis post-season heroics. And heres why: series. inning or later at five, trailing only Pete Rose and Bernie Williams, who recorded six. recalled the walk-off home run he hit off Paul Quantrill of the New York Yankees in Game Four of the 2004 ALCS when the Red Sox were trailing the Yankees, three games to none. That memorable blast ultimately propelled Boston into the World Series by winning the next three games from New York and then recording a four-game sweep over the St. Louis Cardinals for the first Red Sox title since 1918. If you watched Sunday nights thriller, you will likely long remember the scene of attempt to catch the Ortiz blast. I knew I put a good swing on it, Ortiz said. I got my boy Torii chasing everything out there, nine-time Gold Glove (Award winner), you never know, he almost caught that ball. electrifying centerfield defense and the Ortiz power were keystones of those Twins teams. Twins General Manager Terry Ryan once admitted that it was a big mistake not inning game-winning single by Red Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia was set up in part when Detroit first baseman Prince Fielder failed to catch a foul ball off Saltalamacchias bat in front of fans in the front row along the first base line. Some thought fans had interfered with Fielders attempt. Interestingly, this is the10th anniversary of the Bartman Foul Ball. It was October 14, 2003. The scene was Chicagos ancient Wrigley Field, the sixth game of the National League Championship Series, with the Cubs up three games to two over the Florida Marlins and just five outs away from their first trip to the World Series in 58 years.

17B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 18, 2013 25th Roy Hobbs World Series Starts October 26Baseball players from around the world will converge on Lee County for the 25th annual Roy Hobbs World Series, to be held October 26 through November 23. Over the course of this four-week annual tournament, nearly 4,000 adult, amateur baseball players will take the fields in Lee Countys five county-owned complexes which include the Lee County Sports Complex, Terry Park, City of Palms Park, JetBlue Park and the Lee County Player Development Complex. Last years tournament brought in more than $12,206,000 to Lee County over the course of 28 days, according to Jeff Mielke, executive director, Lee County Sports Development. The Roy Hobbs tournament is a grand slam for tourism, said Mielke. Lee County will welcome more than 230 teams this year totaling almost 4,000 players as well as their families. In addition to traveling and staying in local hotels, these visitors will spend money at local restaurants, shops and entertainment venues during their stay. This is one of the largest amateur sporting events in the country, and a big win for Lee Countys tourism industry. Operated by Lee County Parks & Recreation, Lee Countys five countyowned 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. Named after fictional baseball hero Roy Hobbs as depicted in the book, The Natural by Bernard Malmud, the Roy Hobbs Baseballs annual World Series in Fort Myers has grown from 54 teams in 1993 to an expected 230 this fall. The tournament has expanded to include amateur player divisions for men and women ages 18 and up, with divisions up to ages 75 and older.When we accepted Lee Countys invitation to move the Roy Hobbs World Series to Fort Myers in 1993, we had no idea how things would turn out, said Roy Hobbs President Tom Giffen. But this year is Roy Hobbs 25th anniversary, our 21st year in Lee County, so I believe it has turned out very well for all concerned.We are most pleased to be celebrating this milestone anniversary in a community that has been incredibly welcoming and provided great venues, professional services from grounds crews to hotels to vendor services, and amazing hospitality. Ellen (my wife) and I and Roy Hobbs are proud to call Lee County home, Giffen added. Created in 2003 to meet the growing demand for sports development in Lee County, the Lee County Sports Development office is recognized by the Florida Sports Foundation as one of the states 25 Regional Sports Commissions. The Lee County Sports Development office leads the recruitment and implementation of amateur and professional sports events and activities in Lee County, with the goal of providing economic impact to Lee County. Through local partnerships the Lee County Sports Development office provides services designed to address the needs of local, national and international sports entities including housing, access to venues, event management, transportation assistance, event promotion, marketing and local sponsorship opportunities.

But before you walk through it, be sure this favor isnt attached to an obligation you might find difficult to dis charge. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your cre ativity, your persistence and your reliability could lead to a major career shift. Be sure to use that other Taurean trait, your practicality, when discussing what the job offers. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A changing situation might require some adjustments you might not have been prepared to make. However, flexibility in this matter could be the best course to follow at this time. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Youre in a period of fluctuating moods, which is not unusual for the Moon Child. Your emotions stabilize by the 25th. Meanwhile, try to hold off making major decisions until then. LEO (July 23 to August 22) That keen sense of perception helps you hunt down those minute details that others overlook. And, of course, your Leonine ego will accept the expected praise with good grace. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Be careful not to be confrontational when raising a work-related issue. Better to make a request than a demand. And, of course, be prepared to back up your case with facts. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your ego might be hurt when a colleague turns down your offer to help. But accept it as a rejection of your offer, not of you. A friend from the past could re-emerge by weeks end. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A flow of positive energy turns a work proj ect you didnt want to do into something you actually love doing. Now, take that attitude into your social, intimate life -and enjoy what follows. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Working hard to meet your professional goals is fine. But dont neglect your private life, especially where it concerns your more cherished relationships. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Patience remains the key word in deal ing with an emotionally sensitive situation involving a close friend or family member. Help comes your way by weeks end. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) With new information coming in, its a good time to rethink some of your goals without taking suggestions from others, no matter how well-meaning they might be. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Making progress on your project is relatively easy in the early part of the week. A problem could arise midweek. But all goes swim mingly once its resolved.

20B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 18, 2013School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, Our son has major learning problems and we were not happy with slowness of the evaluation process at school so we had a comprehensive evaluation from a private specialist. How can I get the school to use the recommendations from the evaluator? I dont think that the school is too happy about our private evaluation.Cecilia P., location withheld by requestCecilia, Private evaluations can create delicate situations at schools especially since there is great variability in the quality of evaluations by school psychologists and evaluators in the private sector. The key issue here is that outside evaluator has experience in the schools and understands school/teacher expectations as well as the needs of the student at school and can provide reasonable and appropriate recommendations. The federal special education regulations impose an affirmative obligation on the school to consider the results of the evaluation. While the law does not require the team to accept the findings or implement recommendations from a specialist in the private sector, the law does require the school to respond to your concerns about your childs educational program. The law also requires the IEP team to consider the results of any evaluation you obtain with the word consider being defined by the dictionary as to think about carefully in order to arrive at a judgment or decision, especially with regard to taking some action. When you get an evaluation from a specialist in the private sector, ask him/ her to attend the meeting to discuss the findings. If the evaluator is available to describe the childs needs, program, and what will happen if the recommendations are not accepted, it is more likely that the IEP team will accept and use the results. Remember that this is a team effort and that it is critical for all parties to build good working relationships, to be polite and appreciative of everyones efforts in meeting the needs of a student. Legal resources used include Wrightslaw: Special Education Law, 2nd Edition, IDEA Regulations 34 CFR .502(c)(1) 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.

Its a new time of the year, filled with wonderfully exciting and new possibilities. The time and money you consider investing now will definitely pay off in big dividends in your future. Especially, because your bedroom redecorating project might just mean that youll find yourself being just a little happier, a bit more joyful and most importantly at peace with yourself and your surroundings. And, as with every decorating project, its important to develop a decorating plan that fits your needs, your lifestyle and (most importantly) your pocketbook. Consider these three simple steps: Visualize Your Project Begin by visualizing your entire project, and then list all the types of activities youll want to conduct in your getaway haven. Perhaps its writing thought-provoking entries in you daily journal; reading your favorite books; knitting, needlework; watching old romantic movies; meditating; contemplating your plans for the next day whatever your activity, think through what types of things will make you the happiest. Assess Your Space Look at your bedroom with a critical eye. Given the amount of space available and your list of activities, will the space available be adequate? If not, you may need to reassess your activity list. Color Your World Next, lock in a color scheme. Color sets the stage and provides harmony to everything else that will eventually find its way into your new bedroom. Its the backdrop that surrounds all of your furnishings, fabrics, accessories and lighting. Remember, any decorating project that involves the world of color, the fabulous furnishings and accessories that are now available and the marvelous material for floors, walls windows and beds are an exciting undertaking.

21B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 18, 2013 One of my alltime favor ite movie scenes is from The Pink Panther Strikes Again where Inspector Jacques Clouseau (played by legendary actor Peter Sellers) inquires of the innkeeper, Does your dog bite? While reaching to pet the animal, Clouseau is viciously attacked causing him to yell in shock, I thought you said that your dog does not bite!? THAT is not my dog, the innkeeper calmly replies. Despite seeing it hundreds of times, I still laugh at that scene. As most of you know, the plot of the Pink Panther movie series revolves around the heist of a famous large pink-hued diamond and Clouseaus ensuing shenanigans pursuing the thieves. But its not so funny when mother or father loses precious jewelry or other valuables while in assisted living or nursing home care. Anecdotally, the loss of keepsakes and valuables appears to happen quite frequently when a loved one is in the care of another, whether in their own residence or in an assisted living facility. Unfortunately, when valuables disappear, they are almost never recovered and its very hard to prove who may be responsible. Further, most assisted living facilities are not contractually liable for valuable items lost or stolen while one is in their care. Im not, by the way, accusing all health care workers of committing theft. Im sure many such caretakers have been accused of taking items that were long ago lost but faulty memories led to false accusations. With that said, enough valuables have disappeared from the homes of those being cared for or from the rooms in assisted living facilities that residents should consider taking precautionary steps to avoid the heartache of losing an item near and dear to their hearts. So lets review what steps you may want to consider before moving yourself or another loved one into a residence where others are readily present. First, if one owns valuables that one doesnt often wear, consider storing them in a bank safety deposit box. The annual charges are well worth the investment to ensure that your valuables arent prone to those who may have sticky fingers. When you have a safe deposit box, it is usually a good idea to have a trusted relative as a signor on the box, and for you to advise the bank location and box number that you have rented as well as where your key is stored. Second, if you have already considered giving some or all of your valuables away to loved ones now (as opposed to bequeathing them in a will), you may get the added benefit of watching your loved ones enjoy the gifts. Here, you should consider getting appraisals and filing gift tax returns if you or your spouse are likely to have to file a federal estate tax return and the valuables given to any one beneficiary exceed the annual exclusion threshold of $13,000. Third, if you dont already have riders covering the valuables on your homeowners or renters policy, speak to your insurance agent. Your agent will tell you what steps should be taken to guard against loss. Most of the time, however, it is not the financial loss that hurts when losing jewelry and other keepsakes; it is the emotional loss as well. To that end, if you decide to give jewelry that is already covered by an insurance rider, make sure that you remove the rider from the policy after the gift is completed. I have known some who use modern surveillance equipment to record video of those who work in the home. While I dont believe that this is the best option, it could catch a thief red-handed, so to speak, and lead to the recovery of the item if discovered soon enough after the heist. I believe that the takeaway from all of this is that those who are vulnerable should work to minimize the opportunity for those who might be interested in taking valuables by not having them around to begin with. After all, most of us dont have a trusted manservant like Clouseaus Cato Fong, who would never steal anything. Instead, Cato would rather karate chop the inspector upon his arrival from home after a hard days work. So dont end up like Chief Inspector Dreyfus who eventually ended up in the funny farm (pun intended). When you or a loved one are in need of assisted living or nursing home care, dont forget to secure the valuables. Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at www.sbshlaw.com.

The new catering leader has been with Sundial Beach Resort since December 2009, serving first in a front desk position and later enjoying promotions to Supervisor and Front Desk Manager. According to Human Resources Director Theresa Zupon, Marinas listening skills, leadership qualities and enthusiasm for her work have enabled her to effectively manage daily challenges received by Front Desk personnel. Her past training and rooms operations positions her well for her new responsibilities. Bloetzs path to the hospitality world began while she was living in her hometown of Munich, Germany. She enjoyed extensive training with luxury hotels, including the Hilton Munich Park, where she completed her Catering Diploma. She has also received certificates in Psychology, Event and Wedding Planning, as well as Modern Advertising and Marketing from the BAW Academy in Munich, Germany. Moving to the United States, her hospitality career began in 2007 as the Front Office Supervisor at the Hyatt Regency at Reunion in Dallas, Texas. From the beginning of my hospitality career, I wanted to become involved with catering and helping fulfill dreams and create wonderful memories for guests, said Bloetz. The front desk experience enabled me to improve my English language skills. But working in catering has always been my dream; plus it opens opportunities to become more involved in the community. Marinas husband Philip is also a manager at Sundial Beach Resort, working in Food & Beverage and Entertainment. The couple lives on Sanibel and have three boys. Marina Bloetz

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 18, 201322B by Karen L. Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAML(03-12)Yang Gallbladder (GB) meridians Yin partner is liver, and together they govern muscle, tendons, ligaments and nails. From a traditional Chinese medicine view, this pear-shaped organ is viewed as a wise and prudent judge, ruling the body with careful decisions and impeccable judgment. GB regulates reckless or impulsive behavior. Out of balance, a person with GB symptoms will resonate with angry behavior directed toward the world. Physical manifestations may include: arthritis; lateral eye pain; gallstones; migraine headaches; one sided headaches; temple headaches; hip problems; jaw pain; or knee problems; nervousness (GB governs the nervous system). Notice how many of these issues follow the GB pathway. As a reminder, view the August 9 and 16 columns, since the basics of tracing are set forth. Meridian Flow Wheel Time of Day GB meridians high tide is 11 p.m. to 1 a.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 11:30 p.m., then begin with GB. 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 GB if you have some of the symptoms listed in the opening paragraph above or if you experience sedative abuse; stimulant abuse; have strain injuries; grind your teeth; or have TMJ. Affirmation for this meridian is I assert myself peacefully and release judgment easily. 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 second longest meridian, it is one of the most complicated. Follow along while looking at the diagram. For this one, do both sides at the same time. Begin by placing your fingers on the outside of your eyes; trace to the ear opening; make a loop above the ear by bringing fingers forward in a circle; then bring fingers behind the ears; stop and bring fingers to the front of the forehead; stop and take fingers over the crown of the head down the back of the neck and behind the shoulders; move fingers to the back and trace to the outside edge of the breast tissue and to the bottom of your ribs; then in at the waist; then back on the waist. Now trace forward onto the hips and then straight down the outside of the legs and off the fourth toe. Whew... quite a feat! Thats it. You just traced gallbladder meridian. 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 ener getic 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 gallbladder while you learn the next five meridians over the next two months. Have fun with your energy! Next weeks topic is Blood Issues? Meet The Commander of the Blood Trace Liver Meridian. If you have a questions for Karen, email her at ksemmelmanenergy@ gmail.com.

Eden Energy MedicineFeeling Angry At The World Or Have Headaches Trace The Gallbladder Meridian Tracing The Gallbladder Meridian Got A Problem? Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: Why do I have such a difficult time with change?A: We resist change out of fear. This is quite common. We fear the loss of the known. It is scary to navigate without a map into uncharted territory. We become quite accustomed to the known and familiar even when it causes discomfort. People find it difficult to understand, let alone comprehend, why battered and abused women remain in abusive relationships rather than leave. Most of these victims have been so beaten down that they remain in victim consciousness, and they see no way out. They live in total fear, at times concerned for their lives. Can they be helped? Yes, but it takes an experienced professional to lead them back to where they need to be to return to a normal life. When experiencing resistance to change, ask yourself whether your fears are a result of situations that occurred in the past and if they really have any relevance to the situations you are facing now. If we learn to open ourselves up to the grace of change, surrender what we need to relinquish and accept the new that follows, we will feel far less stress than if resisting change. One of my favorite things to do is view the full moon whether I am at the beach or in the mountains. Its magical beauty from fullness to tiny crescent sliver through the month is always a spectacular sight. I observed the moon last night with its cycle just over half full. The moon never really disappears from sight; it simply changes cycles as do our own lives. Change can add beautiful meaning and grace if we allow it to shine into our hearts as we welcome new beginnings. Mom And Me by Lizzie and PryceLizzie and Pryce answer your questions and give advice about aging concerns from a two-generational perspective. A mother and daughter team, Lizzie is a retired RN and health educator, and Pryce is a licensed psychotherapist in private practice who specializes in the care of elders and people with chronic illnesses. Dear Mom & Me, My mother and father continued to live in our family home after their family left. My father developed diabetes and my mother lovingly cared for him and made his health her major interest. After a number of years, he died and she wanted to continue to live in her home. We help her and she also has paid help to come in to assist her with major care. She is now isolated, very lonely and has lost her enthusiasm and interest. She no longer has friends who drop in or phone because they are also having health or adjustment problems or both. We are at a loss to know what to do because she certainly continues to go downhill. Could you please help us? Lesley Dear Lesley, Please take your mother to her physician and have her evaluated to rule out any medical problems. Discuss with your mother what you see and think about her situation. She may feel isolated and want a change as well. If she does not want to move into an independent living or assisted living community, there are senior centers and other community programs providing companionship and activities. If your mothers private duty staff cannot take her, other transportation services should be available in your area. Many folks I know choose to stay in their homes and socialize in senior centers. Pryce Dear Lesley, Your mother may be still grieving for her husband and her lost lifestyle. Loneliness is a dreadful condition that unfortunately can be life-threatening if not treated. We all need to be in contact with others, some more than others, to meet our social needs. Pryce has given you some great suggestions, and a place to start.

23B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 18, 2013 deaRPharmacistS ide E ffect S olutions For B one B uilding Meds A nd D iuretics by S uzy C ohen, R PhDear Pharmacist: I take a water pill (diuretic) for blood pressure. Now, I have to take Boniva for osteopenia. Is there a connection? Whats next for me? Ive read you for years so please pick my question for the paper. HJ, Ocala, Florida Oh yes, definitely connected! I dont mean to be crass but your diuretic makes you lose water volume (the point). But with every bathroom trip, you pee out minerals! Many people are saying, Aha now, because you started out taking a blood pressure med, then at some point, you were prescribed a bone building drug for osteoporosis. Ill share my side effect solutions because I realize you have to, need to (or want to) take your prescription medications. Youve asked, Whats next for me? Depending on the specific diuretic you take, you may eventually need an antidepressant, something for leg cramps and tinnitus (ear ringing)... you may need a drug for heart arrhythmias, all that to counter the mineral and electrolyte deficiencies that result from the drug mugging effect of drug number 1, your blood pressure drug! Shocked? When side effects due to the drug nutrient depletion (drug mugging) are not recognized, youre get a new disease and a new medication for it. This year, an estimated 163,000 people will suffer memory loss (perhaps Alzheimers) due to various prescription drugs that mug brain nutrients. About 61,000 people will hear the words Parkinsons disease, but you wont realize it was drug-induced! Another 32,000 of you will suffer a hip fracture from a drug-induced fall, and almost 8,000 people will die from internal bleeding caused by over the counter non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs. This gets me fired up! Its why I wrote Drug Muggers (Rodale 2011) for you, because 75 percent of doctors office visits end with the physician giving you a prescription for a medication and you need me to protect you! Ill email you a longer version of this article with more side effect solutions if you sign up for my free newsletter at my website. In the meantime, here are several side effect solutions to ask your practitioner(s) about. Dont make changes without your physicians approval: Parsley or dandelion These are gentler diuretics, less likely to cause the harsh depletion of minerals; also less likely to cause dehydration in low doses. Marshmallow root Bisphosphonate drugs for bones can irritate the esophagus in sensitive folks. Marshmallow root or slippery elm tea soothe and protect your esophageal tract. Green foods and supplements Think of spinach, kale, spirulina or chlorophyll supplements or wheatgrass shots. These are full of minerals to restore what the drug mugger (diuretic blood pressure pill) is mugging from you. Take me seriously, mineral deficiency leads to heart beat irregularities, faintness, dizziness and depression. Coconut water Unsweetened, unheated coconut water will restore electrolytes if you have to take diuretics or lisinopril, a popular blood pressure drug.

Hope HealthC are S ervices Hosts C amp For KidsHope HealthCare Services, dedicated to comfort and support for individuals and families facing life-limiting illness, offers assistance to youngsters coping with the loss of a loved one through its upcoming Rainbow Trails Camp program. Scheduled for Friday, November 8 to Sunday, November 10 at Riverside Retreat in LaBelle, the free program available to all children ages 6 to 16 provides an understanding of the grief process, skills to cope with grief and loss, and an opportunity to memorialize and say goodbye to loved ones. Saying goodbye is difficult for all of us, said Mary Tilson, camp coordinator. Rainbow Trails believes in helping children cope in a loving and creative manner in order to help them deal with the loss of their loved ones. The campers will be picked up by bus from the HealthPark office and transported to the LaBelle camp on Friday, returning Sunday afternoon. Upon arrival, campers are greeted by and introduced to the counselors, who are Hope professionals, school counselors, teachers and volunteers who have completed a special Rainbow Trails education series. The camp itinerary is filled with creative, stress-reducing activities including crafts, swimming and singing. While Rainbow Trails may have a serious purpose, campers will have plenty of fun, said Tilson. During this time, children will connect with new friends, have fun while growing as an individual, and enjoy an experience they will never forget. For more information about Rainbow Trails Camp or to apply, call 855-4543104 or visit www.hopehospice.org/ rainbowtrailscamp. Additional information will be provided during parent orientation on October 21. From page 21BMath NightThis event will take place in building U, room 102 on the Fort Myers Campus. Learning mathematics successfully requires a joint effort between home and school. Research shows students that work cooperatively with their parents have higher academic achievement, explained Mary Robertson, Professor of Mathematics Education at Edison State College, and the event organizer. Robertson is an expert in the field. She has been a mathematics teacher for the past 29 years, having taught at the middle school, high school, and college level. For questions about Family Math Night at Edison State College, contact Mary Robertson at 432-5212 or marobertson@edison.edu. B ecoming C osmopolitan A uction Items Less than two weeks away, the 8th annual Becoming Cosmopolitan event will offer a list of unique auction items this year including family vacations to Walt Disney World and Sea World, a luxury getaway to Charleston, South Carolina, VIP trip to Las Vegas and the ultimate sports lovers trip to watch the Boston Red Sox on Fenways Green Monster. Benefitting Community Cooperative Ministries, Inc., the event will take place on Thursday, October 17 from 6 to 9 p.m. at The Firestone Grille & Sky Lounge, located at 2224 Bay Street in downtown Fort Myers. We are so excited with how this years event is coming together, said Tracey Galloway, CEO of CCMI. Its going to be a wonderful night of fun and friendship in support of those less fortunate in our community. This years event will continue with the previously successful lounge theme with a few new twists and include a live band and DJ, gourmet hors doeuvres and cocktails, sinfully delicious chocolate and desserts, exciting raffles, an after party and a gentlemans lounge featuring scotch and craft-beer tastings, gaming and more all in celebration of the cosmopolitan lifestyle in Southwest Florida. More than 300 people attended last falls Becoming Cosmopolitan event. Because of The Firestones building capacity, only 225 tickets will be sold this year. Tickets for the event are still available for purchase at www.ccmileecounty. com. According to CCMI, the amount of the $125 event ticket provides either three months of emergency food to a family of four who is struggling, one month of hot meals to a homebound senior citizen or a weekend backpack filled with food for a student during an entire school year. Each year, we have been able to make this event bigger and better than ever, said Katie Haas, director of Florida operations for the Boston Red Sox and CCMI board member. The monies raised will go a remarkably long way in helping CCMI assist the growing number of our local neighbors who are in need of food and other social services.

The classroom is indoors and air-conditioned, but you must bring your own lawn chair. Please arrive promptly for the 10 to 11 a.m. class. Sorry, no reservations. Attendees are asked to park in the back lot or across the street. The October 19 class features award-winning exhibitor Tricia Rose, who is a Director of Education for the Gulf Coast Orchid Alliance. Rose will explain the repotting needs of different types of orchids as well as explain the use of various potting media, including where to find what you need for all your repotting needs. The Alliance will have exotic orchids for sale with proceeds benefitting the Alliances mission of promoting interest in orchids through efforts such as community orchid classes. Attendees will be given a special entry rate for the gardens that includes a guided tour by garden operator John Brady, who is preserving the history and heritage of the garden while expanding its legacy. Brady will also explain his vision for the parts that are still being renovated. The Everglades Wonder Gardens has been a focal point of Bonita Springs since 1936. Recent renovations and additions include a butterfly house and Japanese garden, as well as a flamingo park and up-close settings for observing native animal species like alligators. An Orchid Trail is being developed by volunteers from the Gulf Coast Orchid Alliance and the Naples Botanical Garden. Overgrowth was cleared to reveal rare decades-old trees, which are now hosts for mounted orchids, many of which were donated for the project. More volunteers are needed, as well as additional shade-loving orchids, to complete the walk. Call the gardens at 9922591 if you would like to help. Read us online at IslandSunNews.com
