Its pretty cool, said Rainville, whose essay What Sanibel Means To Me focused on the islands beautiful beaches. I was really surprised. School principal Barbara Von Harten, who dramatically wound her way slowly through the classrooms maze of tables and desks before placing each of the crowns on the honored students heads, whisked both Rainville and Dunavant off to her office following the coronation ceremony. There, they were invited to place phone calls to their parents to announce the exciting news.continued on page 7 Alex Dunavant and Caiden Rainville were selected king and queen of the 28th annual Baileyfest, to be held on Sunday, October 27 photos by Jeff Lysiak Fifth graders await the crowning of the Baileyfest king and queen, an annual tradition at The Sanibel School Noahs C oncert For T he Kids C oming To B IG ARTSSanibel 12-year-old Noah Waddell will take the stage for an evening of music on Saturday, November 2 at BIG ARTS to benefit the capital campaign for the Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida to help build a new facility at the HealthPark campus.

3 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 25, 2013 Community House Announces Its First Themed Party Of The SeasonThe 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 the SCAs 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. For those who need to brush up on their dance steps from the period, there will be Swing Into The Era dance lesson beginning at 6:30 p.m. as well as a demonstration dance during the party by Enchanted Ballroom professionals Susan Scott and David Flory. The SCA is using this enjoyable theme to help honor and say thank you to our nations veterans from all conflicts past. 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 nonprofit 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 lite, so eat before you arrive. Alcoholic beverages will be available by donation. This themed party will take place at The Community House from 7 to 10 p.m. Thank you to sponsors Michael Kelly, Marge and Joe Meek.

5 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 25, 2013 Historical Village Begins Training For DocentsAs the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village prepares to re-open November 6, board and committee members are hard at work preparing a special training program to get new docents started and to help current docents refresh their memories about the many historical buildings, artifacts and stories to share with visitors. The first training class will be at 9 a.m. November 4 in the villages Old Schoolhouse and will feature a thorough slide show, written by Jeri Magg and presented by Gayle Pence and others. This slide show is a wonderful introduction to Sanibel history and really very interesting, Pence said. Pence is chairman of the docent training committee and a past-vice president of the museum board. Many island historians have helped with the content of this show over many years, so we feel it is a very valuable training tool. The second training class isnt really a class at all. At 9 a.m. on November 11, prospective and present docents will get to meet some of the people they talk about or, rather, people who are playing those parts, as they walk around the village going about their lives in the settings in which they really lived. Im looking forward to playing Daisy Mayer of Shore Haven, said museum manager Emilie Alfino. Joining her in other costumes to play Sanibel pioneers are Dorothy Donaldson, Deb Gleason, Karl and Ann Rodman, and Nancy McCann. It will be a good time and a learning experience, too, Alfino said. Training continues for all docents and volunteers throughout the year, as well as regular docent updates. This year the updates will focus on authors speaking to docents about their island-history-related books, all of which are available in the museums gift shop. Anyone interested in becoming a docent or volunteer should call manager Emilie Alfino at 472-4648. Beginning November 6, The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday through August 6. It is located at 950 Dunlop Road (next to BIG ARTS). Admission is $10 for adults over 18; those under 18 and members are free. Docent-guided tours are available at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. at no extra charge, based upon docent availability. There is handicap access to all buildings. Visit www.sanibelmuseum.org. Board member Ellen ONeill, committee chair Gayle Pence and volunteer Nanette Laurion prepare to assemble new, updated docent handbooks, an invaluable tool full of information about Sanibel and its historical village Farmers Market To Open For SeasonSanibel Island Farmers Market is back for its 6th season.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 25, 20136 Luminary Festival Returns This Decembersubmitted by Ric Base, President of the Sanibel & Captiva Chamber of CommerceWho can forget the excitement we all felt as children when the December holiday season drew near? Whatever our familys religion, this is a special time of the year, a time of celebration with friends and family. Holiday cheer is in the air and the feeling of fellowship is all around. This is the spirit of the Luminary Festival on the islands. The Sanibel Luminary Festival will be held on Friday, December 6 from 5:30 to 9 p.m. The Captiva festival will be held on Saturday, December 7 from 5:30 to 9 p.m. Following the Thanksgiving holiday, Luminary is all about our local community here on the islands. Chamber members open their doors to the community. Residents and visitors stroll the Luminary trail, going from from shops to restaurants, to places of worship and community centers. Trolleys provide transportation around Captiva and from one end of Sanibel to the other. A trail of luminary candles, prepared and placed by our service clubs, leads from one festively decorated business to the next. On Sanibel, some of the featured events are Nativity displays in places of worship, live music from local and national bands and local choirs, a busy meet and greet from Santa Claus, and a round of good food and drinks, compliments of local businesses. Luminary is the start of a busy fourweek period on Captiva. The Captiva Holiday Village celebration includes treelighting festivities, a Caribbean-style carnival, decorated golf cart and boat parades, arias on the beach, and other activities. How did Luminary start? Some 30 years ago, the chamber of commerce, in planning the end of year program, noticed that the period between Thanksgiving and Christmas was unusually quiet. People were looking for an event leading up to season. The chamber felt that a Luminary Festival would not only be popular but it would also help the community get into the spirit for a busy holiday season. The Luminary Festival was a hit and visitors started booking just so they would be on the islands for Luminary. More members of the community got involved, and the rest is history.

For additional information about Baileyfest 2013, contact Baileys General Store at 472-1516. What Sanibel Means To Meby Alex DunavantSanibel Island, Florida, is one of the greatest places on Earth, with all of its extraordinary features. Some of my personal favorites include the lovely seashells everywhere you look, and the hot, moist weather and the freedom to relax. Theres a reason why Sanibel Island is the shell capital of the world. Not only are there millions of tiny, sparkly shells of all shapes and sizes everywhere you look, but theyre well known for the outstanding, colorful and detailed designs that make them so beautiful. Youd get lucky to find an alphabet cone or junonia while strolling down Middle Gulf or Buttonwood, yet any seashell, either tiny or enormous, is quite a delight! Also, when I think of Sanibel, I think of amazing weather. Its usually warm and humid with an occasional breeze every now and then. This excellent weather is great for beach days, so we can swim, go shelling, and stroll lazily across the bright, tan, sandy shorelines and far into the deep, green ocean that stretches as far as the eye can see. This weather is one of the reasons this island is so popular with tourists and snowbirds, along with most residents. One of the main features that makes Sanibel unique is the freedom to relax. I love relaxing on weekends, calmly stretched out on a small, folding chair, with my toes in the ocean, feeling the shallow waves coming and going. It means kicking back, being free, clearing my mind and having my imagination take me wherever it wants to be. Sanibel Island is a very popular place, for very good reason. With the millions of tiny pieces of shells every which way, and the warm, yet breezy, weather that is key to great relaxation and exploration, Sanibel Island, Florida, is perhaps the greatest place on Earth. What Sanibel Means To Meby Caiden RainvilleI have been living on Sanibel Island for 5 years. I have known its beauty since I moved here long ago. Now, I get to share it with all of you. This is what Sanibel means to me. Our beaches are beautiful sandy places. The water washes up and consumes the sand. Taking old shells and bringing new. Each night there are flaming sunsets with brilliant colors. Its a perfect place to relax and calm yourself. You can listen to the waves, smell the salty air and feel the warm mist on your face. Sanibel has many astonishing waters. They are murky places filled with life. You can swim or boat in the warm Sanibel waters. Relaxing in them is a great way to spend a warm summer afternoon. The waters are also salty and clear. Occasionally if the water is just right, you can look down and see right through the water to the bottom of the ocean. You can see the crabs scuttling to a pile a of seaweed. Tiny fish swimming in big schools. You can even see your feet. You can see the sand moving with the waves, and landing on your toes. The Sanibel waters, are amazing places. Sanibel is not just a place for a relaxing sabbatical; it is also a dwelling for many distinct folks. It is my dwelling too. I am very blissful to live here. I love the community and nature. I love the way the waves hit the sand. It takes me to another world. Some people dont see sanibels beauty, but trust me I definitely see it. Everything about Sanibel is flawless, to me. Can you see it? can you see the beautiful island of Sanibel. It is a truly beautiful place. You should visit it some time! 1975-2019 periwinkle way ShopOnSanibel.com Something for Everyone Share your community news with us.

The vote was 5-2 with Commissioners Phillip Marks and Tom Krekel opposed. However, two more issues remain to be resolved before the plan can be approved: the citys requirement for beefed-up vegetation buffers and the owners plan to swap out unused space elsewhere in the center to make up for increasing the floor area. The applicant and city planners will seek a solution before the next hearing on November 12. It was an almost three-hour hearing of complex details involving three variance requests to vegetation, parking, floor area, coverage and flood regulations, plus conditional use and development permits. What makes it so complicated is that most of the center was built before city incorporation and does not meet current codes. When changes are made, existing codes kick in, unless variances are approved. City planners recommended a driveway linking Periwinkle Place with neighboring Forever Green Center, something the applicant adamantly opposes, according to his attorney Steve Hartsell. Parking spaces would be lost and it might be necessary to relocate power lines to accomplish it. In the 5-2 vote, the commission agreed to lift that requirement. The board is currently working on a new parking interconnectivity policy citywide as part of the commercial redevelopment review and felt it was premature to impose it in this case, even though it was a requirement 20 years ago when Forever Green received planning permission. The 64-page staff report notes that the new restaurant will add about 2,287 square feet of new coverage and developed area and that the applicant proposes to remove some wood and concrete walkways, a storage building, a gazebo and some paved surfaces for a net reduction in coverage. The new construction would be on the northwest side of the core or central section of the center. The site plan also shows a deck with bonus outdoor seating, although that is not part of this application. Second floor space for what once was Synergy and the 450-square-foot loft (above Classic Collections) will be taken out of use, Hartsell said. City staff want Dahlmann Periwinkle Place LP to remove the floor surface in those spaces to ensure they will not be used, but Ray Fenton, the applicants architect, says the slab floors are part of the integrity of the structure and should remain. Commissioner Krekel said it was no hardship for Dahlmann to be turned down since Chocolate Expressions, which used to serve ice cream among other things, is now vacant and could be put back in use. He also objected to the centers owner resisting city requirements on landscaping. We want to have a beautiful island. That is what these rules were made for, he added. Commissioner Marks said regardless of taking space out of service, the applicant was still making a new footprint on the 7.3-acre site. Also, he said, a restaurant generates more visits than a retail store and therefore increases intensity of use. Further discussions between staff and the applicant will seek other options for swapping out floor space. Resident Claudia Burns said approval could set a dangerous precedent to other shopping center owners, and Larry Schopp, another resident, said the applicant demonstrated no hardship and could establish a restaurant in vacant space in the center. At the November 12 continuance, commissioners will hear whether the applicant is willing to accept the vegetation recommendations of Holly Millbrandt, acting natural resources director, and whether the applicant has done all he can regarding taking second floor space out of service. Dock Okayed For Pie-Shaped Lotby Anne MitchellThe planning commission has granted relief to another owner of a pie-shaped canal lot that doesnt have enough frontage for a dock and boat lift without getting a variance. On Tuesday, the commission approved variances for Michael and Joni Kluth, of 6407 Pine Avenue in the Del Sega subdivision, to exceed required setbacks from the side property line and to extend further into the adjacent waterway than permitted. The Kluths want to replace an existing boat dock thats located close to the end of an inlet that provides the only direct water access to two parcels. Commission Chairman Mike Valiquette suggested to Vice Mayor Doug Congress, who was in the audience, that the city council consider setting policy on such lots. The problem is these people have to come here and pay (an application fee) and beg for (docks), Valiquette said. INSIDE CITY HALL ALL WAYS TRAVEL Where Will You Vacation Next? 239.472.3171

It will be held on the grounds of Sanibel City Hall, 800 Dunlop Road, with military music beginning at 10:30 a.m. and the ceremony starting at 10:55 a.m. Doug Quelch, past chapter president, will officiate, with introductions of honored guests and dignitaries given by Mayor Kevin Ruane. City council members and city manager Judie Zimomra are expected to participate. The Veterans Day address will be given by Lieutenant General Gary Speer (Ret.). The BIG ARTS Sanibel Community Band and the Sanibel Youth Chorus will provide music and lead a sing-along.

Any veteran who wishes to participate is welcome to do so.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 25, 201312 Spotlight On CHRsubmitted by Claudia BurnsYleana Way (then known as Yleana Rosado) came to Sanibel in the early 1970s to join a cousin and serve as housekeeper for an island resident. After only three weeks, she was so homesick she returned to her native Yucatan, but during that short period of time, a young charter boat captain, Jerry Way, had fallen in love with her. So he followed Yleana to Yucatan and met her parents. Yleana then returned to Sanibel with her mother, Hilda, and both found work in the hospitality field. After three years of courting, under Hildas watchful eye, Yleana finally became Mrs. Way. Forty years later, Yleana is the mother of two, Christopher and Melissa; has three lovely granddaughters, Cyrni, Sophia and Isabel; and has built a successful cleaning service. She and Jerry brought up their family in a rented house on Seagrape Lane, but when he died in 2010, Yleana was faced with the prospect of having to move off-island because she could no longer afford to live on Sanibel. Instead, she applied for Community Housing & Resources (CHR) affordable housing and was eventually accepted into the program. Now she shares an apartment with her brother Ricardo (Richie), who assists with her thriving business. Both have volunteered to help CHR on many occasions by readying units for new tenants. Their mother, who will turn 90 next year, lives nearby, also in CHR housing. Kelly Collini, executive director of CHR, is grateful for the contributions Yleana and Richie have made to the affordable housing program. They insisted on volunteering to clean units before new tenants move in. Its their way of giving back to CHR, and thanking us for providing an affordable way to live on Sanibel, which has been Yleanas home for 40-plus years. She and her brother are model residents, and we appreciate their hard work on behalf of CHR. CHR depends on donations to help cover the ongoing maintenance, refurbishment and repair of CHR buildings and grounds, and will hold its 2nd annual Mardi Gras fundraiser on March 1. For more information about CHR, visit wwwsanibelchr.org, stop by the office at 2401 Library Way, or phone 472-1189. CHR is a 501(c)3 organization that has partnered for more than 30 years with the City of Sanibel to provide affordable housing for people who live and/or work on the island, plus senior and disabled Sanibel citizens. With more than 117 residents occupying 74 rental units and 14 limited-equity ownership homes in 11 complexes throughout the island, CHR is an essential resource for those who provide the services islanders need. CHR residents contribute in numerous ways to island life and often volunteer for/lead island organizations.

15 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 25, 2013 Shell Museum Welcomes Visitors With A New LookThe Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum recently reopened its doors after closing for two weeks to complete the most substantial renovation since it was con structed in 1995. The reception area has been reconfigured to flow into the museum store, the Great Hall of Shells and the auditorium. The renovation created a welcoming area for visitors and improved utilization of the space. A generous round desk provides double-duty for admissions and museum store sales. A colorful banner of Henry Domke shell images will hang above the desk. We hated to close the museum for even two weeks, but I think our guests will be delighted with the changes, said Dorrie Hipschman, executive director. Our thanks to Gus Landl, general contractor, for bringing the job in on time; Amy Nowacki, archi tect, for her modern and efficient design; and to board members Amy, Lee Almas and Tom Risher who coordinated the project. A special thanks also goes to Tom Risher who worked tirelessly to ensure that everything was ready when our first visitor walked in the door. While the reception area was getting a facelift, the windows in the Great Hall of Shell were being upgraded. Single-pane windows were sufficient back in 1995 when the museum was constructed, but Charley, Wilma and other hurricanes have taught all Floridians the value of hurricane protection. We needed to better protect our outstanding collections (now almost 125,000 lots) and our exhibits from future storms, said Jos Leal, curator and director of education. Every opening windows and doors is now rated for the high winds and rains Sanibel may experience in the future. In the Great Hall of Shells, new windows became works of art. In the cupola are magnificent art glass panels created by Sanibels renowned continued on page 16 The new reception area at The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum is brimming with visitors Tom Risher helps put the squid model back in place that hangs from the ceiling in the Great Hall of Shells; it was taken down during remodeling.

17 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 25, 2013 Birds Eye ViewMy Alligator Bite, Continuedby Mark Bird WestallWell, as I mentioned in my last article, by 1988, I was the last licensed alligator handler left on the island and it was getting to be a little bit of a hassle getting calls from the police department at all hours of the day and night. I mean, I was willing to volunteer my time to help the island coexist with its indigenous wildlife, but this was getting a little old. So I had a conversation with Gary Price, the city manager at the time, about having some of the police officers licensed also. They were usually the first ones called to the scene anyway and, if they were licensed, they could handle most of the escorting smaller gators back into the pond situations and I could still be available for the really big ones. After the program was initiated, I would sometimes joke that we had an escort service for alligators on Sanibel and it was run by the police department. That joke didnt go over very well with the police chief or the city manager. But when the original alligator program had first been set up, the naturalists who were involved were adamant about keeping Sanibels police force only in a supportive role because their concern was that if the city was more directly involved, more gators would be unnecessarily destroyed because that would be the easiest way to ensure the publics safety. And isnt it interesting that that is exactly what ended up happening. We didnt want to get serious about stopping the feeding of the gators (which is what really makes them dangerous), so eventually, the powers-that-be on the island decided that it was better to kill all the bigger alligators instead of stopping the feeding. So much for the citys vision statement: Sanibel lives in harmony with the islands wildlife. Yeah, right! But I digress. I started training a few police officers and public works staff in the intricacies of catching and relocating wayward alligators. And actually, after spending a few hours one day letting some of the trainees catch, and then release, an alligator several times (this particular animal was so tame that we ended up calling in the trapper to come get it). I was heading home at dusk and came upon two police cruisers parked on the bicycle path beside Sanibel-Captiva Road at the Legion Curve; lights flashing. There, right in the middle of the bicycle path was a huge alligator. It was obvious he couldnt stay there and had to be forcefully moved. Now, a small gator can quite often be herded to where you want him to go, similar to how one would herd a group of farm animals; just approach him from the opposite direction you want him to take and he will run away from you. But a big gator acts more like he is at Custers Last Stand and he is Custer. He lays there on the ground, taking up a defensive position, saying basically, Ok, if you dont mess with me, I wont mess with you! Of course, with the darkness increasing every moment, we couldnt just leave him sitting on the bike path, waiting for some poor tourist, riding without lights to run into him. Notice I said run into him. This guy was so big, only a monster truck would have run over him. I spent the next 10 or so minutes trying to get this gator to abandon his Last Stand position and move on across the street in the direction he was headed when the passing traffic blocked his way. In order to get a big gator that is walking on land to keep moving when confronted with potential danger, you have to convince him somehow that moving on is better than staying put. A big gator thinks hes the baddest creature around so you have to show him that you are tougher than he is and he should do his best to get away from you. To accomplish this, I would take a long aluminum pole that I always had with me and I would poke him at the base of his tale, just behind his front leg, or rap him firmly across the snout, making him madder with every poke. Then, I would actually let him bite the end of the pole and, after wrestling it away from his teeth, strike him hard, once again, across the soft tissue of his nostril.The theory being that the gator is now thinking, I just bit that human really hard and hes still hitting me across the head; maybe that humans tougher than I think. Maybe its time for me to move on. That strategy had worked for me many times over the years, but this guy wasnt budging. He was still right next to the bike path and it was starting to get very dark, the mosquitoes were coming out, and I was tired and wanted to go home to dinner.continued on page 22 11/01/13.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 25, 201318 T aste Of T he Islands Musical Guests A nnouncedThe Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) will feature two bands at its annual Taste of the Islands. The bands Rocker and Late Night Brass will provide entertainment this year. Based in Fort Myers, Rocker is a guitar driven, classic and contemporary rock band that plays venues across Southwest Florida. Together since 1978, the band has opened for acts including Alice Cooper and Billy Squier. Late Night Brass is a high-energy 11-piece, horn-driven band based in Tampa. Since 2005, theyve been playing blues, R&B, swing, big band, disco, funk, traditional and smooth jazz, pop-rock, rock n roll and Latin music. Theyve played at Tampas Holiday Tree Lighting celebration and headlined the Summer Jazz on the Gulf concert series in Naples. People at last years Taste event really enjoyed Rocker, said Steve Calabro, CROW executive director. We wanted to have them join us again this year but also feature an additional sound.

Its such a great way to celebrate Ding Darlings artistic and conser vation legacy. Conservation Art Day has grown into a day of wildlife art that pays homage to the legacy of conservation art begun by the refuges namesake, J.N. Ding Darling, a Pulitzer Prize-winning political cartoonist and the original duck stamp artist. Geared toward families and art enthusiasts, the day will offer participants a number of free interactive nature-art activ ities including wildlife portraits by cartoonist Dave Horton for the first 50 arrivals; a cartooning lesson from Doug MacGregor; a guided tour of Indigo Trail and the new Wildlife Education Boardwalk; a photography tram workshop on Wildlife Drive, compliments of nature photographer Terry Baldwin and Tarpon Bay Explorers (for first 30 signups that day); drawing workshops with artist Nancy Tome; and snacks.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 25, 201320 Tarpon And Sharks Like Beaches Tooby Capt. Matt MitchellFishing this week was all about the options, or basically one of two options: either fish the beaches or fish the sound. Either option was a good call but if you wanted to pull in a really big fish or have a chance at a late season tarpon, the beach was hard to beat. Most days we had light east winds so conditions for getting out in the gulf were near perfect. From West Rocks on Sanibel all the way north to Captiva Pass within a mile of the beach, the gulf side was alive with bait and the predators that make their living on migrating southbound bait schools. From Spanish mackerel and jacks to tarpon and big sharks, everything was feeding. Huge schools of threadfin herring made locating the fish easy; simply find the birds and bait and the feeding fish were close by. Spoons and small white jigs were all you needed to get started on this fast-paced action beachside. Throwing through the surface-feeding jacks and mackerel, the action was non-stop. Often while fighting one of these fish, a shark would grab it and either break your line or cut the fish in two. Once you had enough of this action on the mackerel and jacks, it was time to move up the food chain. Make one throw of a cast net on these threadfins and its time to break out the bigger tackle. I like to anchor up just out from the beach and set out the bait spread. Most days it did not take long to start to see rolling tarpon cruising by. Pitching free-lined threadfins at these rolling fish resulted in a few jumped tarpon, although in two days on the beach, I was unable to land one. These fall beach tarpon are packing on the pounds before they migrate out of here as the water temperature cools. I never found huge numbers of tarpon in one place on the beach this week; most were in small groups and still a little spread out. While sitting on the anchor, we never went more than about 10 minutes without seeing rolling fish passing by the boat. As our weather gets cooler, these tarpon will bunch up tighter around schools of glass minnows, ladyfish and mackerel. This action will continue until we get our first big cold front which could be in as soon as a few weeks out or or as late as Christmas. Then, tarpon fishing will be done until next spring. While waiting for that tarpon bite, expect to catch sharks of all sizes and varieties. The sharks will eat a live threadfin, but a small jack cut in two and put out on a circle hook was a better option, often not lasting more than a few minutes in the rod holder until it got eaten. Action on these sharks was crazy with many double hook ups. These fourto six-foot-plus sharks are a blast to catch. If you go for option two, water clarity in the sound has really begun to clear up and catching shiners has been getting easier by the day. Chumming with these live shiners really had the fish fired up all week with just about any shoreline or creek produced fish if the wind and tide were right. On the lower tides, I spent my time in the deeper feeder creeks going in and out of the Ding Darling Refuge. Then, as the water got up higher, I moved out into the sound, targeting mangrove islands and oyster bars. A whiffle ball bat full of stunned shiners pitched out quickly let you know if the fish were around. As our water gets clearer by the day, big trout action has been getting better and better. This week we caught trout up to 25 inches all over the southern sound. Most of these bigger trout were in the deeper creeks during the lower water periods then in potholes out from the mangroves during the higher water. There are a lot of trout out on the open flats too but the majority of them are less than the 15-inch minimum size.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. If you have comments or questions email captmattmitchell@aol.com.

21 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 25, 2013 CROW Case Of The Week: Florida Chicken Turtleby Patricia MolloyIf you take a chicken, put it in a shell. What you have is chicken turtle looking very well. So goes The Turtle Song, written by the Oregon Coast Aquarium. The chicken turtle currently at CROW, however, was not the pillar of health upon its admission last week. Its a fairly uncommon turtle, but we have had two in the past two weeks, said Jordan Donini, assistant wildlife rehabilitator. They are often hit by cars because they are very agile and like to move around. Chicken turtles will burrow into the soil to escape dry conditions if they are unable to find suitable temporary or permanent aquatic habitats. The chicken turtle (Deirochelys reticularia) is a medium size turtle found in the southeastern United States: south from Virginia to Florida and west to Texas, Oklahoma and Missouri. There are three subspecies, including the Florida chicken turtle (Deirochelys reticularia chrysea). Formerly a common sight on the shelves of southern markets, the meat was purported to taste like poultry, hence its name. Social creatures, these turtles may swim in small groups in calm, shallow freshwater, taking time to bask on rocks and logs with their yellow striped legs and unusually long necks out-stretched in blissful repose. Beware: they are quick to bite if handled. Young chicken turtles are primarily carnivorous, gradually adding more vegetation to their diets as they mature. The patient receives daily tub time during which it is fed crayfish and shrimp; in the wild, chicken turtles feed on amphibian larvae, snails, insects and small fish in aquatic vegetation. Due to its fractured carapace, or upper shell, it must be drydocked afterward under a heat lamp to ensure that the wounds dry thoroughly. It is eating well, but its attitude hasnt changed much since it arrived. It was a little more inactive yesterday, but I think thats because it was a little bit cooler yesterday, said Donini. It will take three to six months for the chicken turtle to fully recover from its injuries. If you would like to help patient #2806 on its long road to recovery, go to CROWs website for more information. CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Inc.) is a non-profit wildlife hospital providing veterinary care for native and migratory wildlife from our local area.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 25, 201324 Plant SmartEgyptian Crowfoot Grassby Gerri ReavesEgyptian crowfoot grass (Dactyloctenium aegyptium) is an extremely common invasive weed found along roadsides and in disturbed sites, fields and even cultivated lawns. This native to Africa and Asia is found throughout much of the U.S., and its made a pest of itself in the Americas and Europe. The Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council lists it as a category-II invader, a species that has so increased in abundance or frequency that it could be ranked a categoryI invasive should ecological damage be demonstrated. The Florida Department of Transportation lists it as undesired vegetation in mowed areas of rights-of-way. It especially likes dry or sandy habitats, tolerates full sun or moderate shade, and adapts to almost any spot, even coastal sand dunes. It grows up to two feet tall, spreading and branching to form a mat. Also called Egyptian star grass and Durban crowfoot grass, the plants most notable characteristic is the star-shaped inflorescence or seedhead, which resembles a crows foot. Although the plant usually produces five claw-like spikes, the number varies. The seedheads are protected by curved spines that can be painful to step on. The star-shaped structure also resembles the underside of a skinny starfish or sea star. The surfaces of the leaves sheaths have hairs on them. This is one plant you can feel justified in ripping out, but good luck on eradicating this grass permanently.

Wines In The Wild Goes GreenThe 2013 edition of Wines in the Wild, to be held on Saturday, November 9, is going green. The wine and food tasting will be held on the grounds of the SCCF Nature Center from 6 to 8 p.m. My first criteria when choosing the wines for this always-fun evening is value, said Tom Uhler, event founder and wine aficionado. I search out wines that have a good relationship between price and taste. This year, Ive also looked for offerings that have an environmental component. Whether in their grape growing practices, their winemaking or their packaging, many vintners the world over are more aware of their impact on the environment. The selections will show that wines can be responsible as well as tasty. Erick Lindblad, SCCF Executive Director, says that this years theme fits well with SCCFs mission to conserve the natural resources in and around our islands. We invite our friends to join us for a deliciously enjoyable tour of the Foundations property. Its a great way to celebrate the arrival of season while supporting our many programs. Reservations for Wines in the Wild are being accepted by SCCF at 472-2329. The cost is $75 per person in advance, or $85 at the door. Bank of the Islands is the events Presenting Sponsor.

27 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 25, 2013 Sanibel Island Writers ConferenceIslanders Marge and Joe Meek invite residents and visitors to a reading and discus sion by their niece Kristen Iversen from her aclaimed book Full Body Burden on Thursday, November 7 at BIG ARTS. Iversen is part of the 8th annual Sanibel Writerss Conference, a three-day event put on by FGCU that brings together writers, academic leaders and students. The university has invited the public to attend the three evening events free of charge. The first nights festivities begin on Thursday evening at 5:15 p.m. with cocktails, followed by Iversens reading and then a musical performance by Craig Finn. Iversens book is a work of memoir and investigative journalism that reveals the dramatic story of the deeply contaminated Rocky Flats nuclear weapons plant near Denver. Iversen will be reading the section about the 1969 Mothers Day fire, an event that contaminated the entire Denver area and came within seconds of a Chernobyl-like accident in Colorado. Deception, cover ups, disaster are all part of this fascinating work, which also shows a deeply personal side of the people and the community living in the shadow of Rocky Flats. This book is personal to islanders the Meeks, not only because of their Denver family and friends, but also because they too lived in Denver during this time frame. The book does not take sides in the nuclear debate, but chronicals one nuclear weapons plant and its forever effects on the land and all living things. I hope you will spend the evening with us on Thursday, November 7 and then return both Friday and Saturday evenings to enjoy more excellent writers that FGCU has brought together, said Marge Meek. Help us welcome Kris back to Sanibel. BIG ARTS is at 900 Dunlop Road. For more information, call 395-0900.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 25, 201328 Black Maria Film FestivalThe Thomas Edison Black Maria Film Festival returns to the Edison & Ford Winter Estates at 7 p.m. November 1, outdoors on the river side lawn of the Ford Estate; and November 2 at 7 p.m. at Edison State College, Richard H. Rush Library and Auditorium. The Black Maria Film Festival is an international, award winning festival that has toured the nation for 32 years and is hosted by museums and colleges throughout the country, showcasing independent and experimental film and video. The films include a variety of contemporary works drawn from the annual juried selection of award-winning films and videos. The Black Maria is recognized by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences as an Academy Awards qualifying festival for short films. A special screening of Thomas Edisons 1910 film Frankenstein and discussion by Dr. Wendy Chase, professor of humanities at Edison State College, will kick off the festival on November 1. Film Selections at Edison Ford on November 1 include: Jeffrey Moser, Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Directors Choice Selection This experimental film gazes at automation, industry and American culture by manipulating appropriated 16mm footage from a vintage Ford corporation industrial film. The image is constructed from hundreds of frames inspired by some of the work of the legendary late 1800s photographer Eadweard Muybridge. Jennifer Levonian, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Directors Choice Selection This animated film is based on an epiphany in a college students life; the semester has ended and its time to go home for the summer and deal with parental meddling vs. self-actualization. The mixed-media technique of this short film makes for an engaging work of animation art. Emily Hubley, South Orange, New Jersey, Directors Choice Selection is a distinctive animated work made in a tender, elegantly laconic, hand drawn style. An artist struggling to balance doubt and inspiration shares his poetic deliberations with an inner/outer muse. Meena Nanji, Santa Monica, California, Jurors Stellar Narrative Selection is a magical film shot in India as inspired by a short story by Franz Kafka entitled Kafkas story describes a day in the life of a boy living in the countryside. In Nanjis film, Ravi is found lying in the grass contemplating the sky and the mystery of nature. He is aware of changing times and the possibilities of the future. In the evening, an older companion and Ravi gaze at the distant city lights on the horizon and muse about those who dwell there, questioning with wonder in moments of becoming. Quique Rivera Rivera, San Juan, Puerto Rico, Jurors Stellar Animation This is an imaginative underwater neonoir and colorful animation inspired by the Lionfish Plague. Fishes dream, lobster claws trans-mutate and the sea swirls in a story about greed and hierarchy in the Caribbean reefs. Josh Gibson, Durham, North Carolina, Jurors Stellar Award for Documentary In flickering black and white, is a luminous, picturesque documentary filmed on the shores of legendary Lake Victoria in Uganda. This handmade, artisanal film is not only a beautifully made work, with close-up portraiture of a lakeside village and its peoples daily lives as they follow their scenic tradition of net fishing, drying and roasting, but its also a modern-day parable of the effects of globalization on Africa. offers a captivating insight into a people who are in harmony with nature yet the film is equally a meditation on the economic and ecological impact of an invasive species on traditional cultures. Harry Hall, Los Angeles, California, Directors Choice Selection This is a personal tribute to the sci-fi/ fantasy author who died on June 5 2012. Shot over 20 years ago in the basement/office of Ray Bradburys home, the footage has been re-edited using HD stock footage to illustrate the authors droll reflections. His views on creativity, Steven Spielberg, the notorious Black List and politics of the 1950s and a skewering indictment of networks make for an entertaining as well as curiously reconstructed interview film. Harry Hall, Los Angeles, California, Directors Choice Selection An aria from Mozarts is parodied in this outlandish parody of a classic. This version utilizes puppetry, absurdist subtitles and sound effects to create a flamboyantly humorous animation.

Monday Night Movie56 Upby D i S aggauThe BIG ARTS movie for Monday night October 28, is Up, a movie 49 years in the making. Filmmaker Michael Apted started in 1964 with a group of British 7-year-olds and has revisited his subjects every seven years. His latest edition, examines 56-year-olds settling into middle age. Apted said that even if this group may be facing mortality, the film is surprisingly upbeat. The documentary films have followed the lives of four teen children selected to represent the range of socio-economic backgrounds in Britain at that time, with the explicit assumption that each childs social class predetermines their future. They were asked about their lives and their dreams for the future. Every seven years, the director films material from those of the original fourteen who chose to participate. The series has received high praise over the years. The late Roger Ebert said that it is an inspired, even noble, use of the film medium, that the films penetrate to the central mystery of life, and that the series is among his top 10 films of all time. Over the course of the project, the program has in varying degrees had a direct effect on the lives of its participants. Although it began as a political documentary, the series has become a film of human nature and existentialism. The idea of class immobility held up in most, but not all cases, as the series has progressed. As they turn 56, more lifechanging decisions and surprising developments are revealed. Admission to BIG ARTS Monday Night Film Series is $8 and all screenings begin at 7 p.m. in Schein continued on page 31

Go ahead and throw one of your own. Then prepare for some seri ous work coming up early next week. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A new and intensely productive cycle is about to kick in. Be careful not to get too stressed out, though. Make time to restore your energies by relaxing with family and friends. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) This could be a good time to share some of your plans with those closest to you. Their comments could give you some added insight into how you might accomplish your goals. LEO (July 23 to August 22) An attack of self-doubt might be unsettling for the usually super-assured Feline. But it could be your inner voice telling you to hold off implement ing your plans until youve reassessed them.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A hectic job schedule begins to ease just in time to blow off all that work-generated steam on Halloween. A family situation runs into an unexpected complication.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Once again, that Capricornean stubborn streak sets in and could keep you from get ting much-needed advice. Fortunately, it lifts by weeks end, in time to make an informed decision. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A surprise trip early in the week could lead to other unexpected offers when you return. Word to the wise: Avoid talking too much about this until youve made some decisions.

31 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 25, 2013 Plagues, Witches A nd War C oming T o S anibel L ibraryThe Sanibel Public Library is the site for a MOOC Plagues, Witches And War: The Worlds of Historical Fiction, a unique and exciting introduction to the genre and craft of historical fiction, for curious students, aspiring authors or anyone with a passion for the past. Read classics of the genre, encounter bestselling writers of historical fiction, and discover your own historical archive while interacting with a global community of interested readers. A MOOC is a Massive Open Online Course, and is being made available using the librarys high-speed Internet, computers and meeting rooms. The library is a natural place to host a MOOC, said Margaret Mohundro, library director. Public libraries are evolving into multi-dimensional community centers. One of the Sanibel Public Librarys roles is to serve as an online community hub; another role is to provide opportunities for lifelong learning. How does it work? Come to the classes held on Fridays at 2 p.m., from November 1 through December 20. Via the Internet, participants will view online lectures, meet emerging authors of the genre, and have access to course materials; locally, participants will discuss the topics and share your ideas with others in the class through online forums. Plagues, Witches and War will provide an engaging introduction to the genre and craft of historical fiction. You will learn about some of the classics in the genre while encountering five established and emerging authors of historical fiction (including a Pulitzer Prize winner and several New York Times bestsellers) who will be visiting the class as guest writers. Attendees will read excerpts from a number of classic historical novels from England and the United States: Scotts Waverley (often described as the first historical novel), Charles Dickenss A Tale of Two Cities (set in Paris and London during the French Revolution), William Wells Browns Clotel (the first novel in the African American literary tradition, set in part around the time of Thomas Jefferson) and several others. The online lectures will provide an overview of the development of historical fiction during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Then, the class moves into the 20th century, with lectures on modernism, metafiction, the mass market and the New Historical Novel of Latin America. These parts of the course provide a toolkit for future reading in the genre. Following that, of a series of seminars on the craft of historical fiction will be offered. These seminars will feature five novelists who will be guests for recorded workshops and discussions as well as online forums and chats. Guest authors are Jane Alison, Geraldine Brooks, Yangsze Choo, Katherine Howe and Mary Beth Keane. The guest authors novels bring to life an array of past cultures, from ancient Rome to Renaissance England to 19thcentury Malaysia. The class will read selections from these authors novels along with some of the original historical sources that inspired their fiction. Discussions will include the process of research, the crafting of character, setting and dialogue, and the challenges of historical fiction as a genre, among other topics. Along with these introductions to the genre and craft of historical fiction, par ticipants will have a chance to research and, if they wish, begin crafting their own historical fiction. The course is being offered online by Bruce Holsinger, Professor of English, University of Virginia. It is being organized locally by island resident and Sanibel Public Library commissioner Linda Kramer. All you need for this class is an internet connection and the time to read, write a bit, and discuss marvelous works of literature with your peers, said Kramer. Holzinger is the author of A Burnable Book, a historical novel set in London in 1385 (forthcoming from HarperCollins and William Morrow early in 2014). He is the author or editor of six nonfiction books as well, which garnered major awards from the Modern Language Association, the American Musicological Society, and the Medieval Academy of America. His work has been recognized with a Guggenheim Fellowship, and he is the recipient of research fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the American Council of Learned Societies. The MOOC is set for Fridays at 2 p.m. in November and December. There is no need to register; simply come by the library and join the class. All classes are open to the public and available at no charge. For more information, contact the Sanibel Public Library at 472-2483.

I was enthralled as though Id seen a nest of garter snakes, start up every witch way.

Beachgoers were unaffected by the presence of two dredge vessels named Dodge Island and Padre Island as well as the large pipes which transport the sand harvested off-shore. The work is being performed by Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Company, LLC. On October 7, crews began pumping sand onto the beach. The first segment where the dredges anchored off-shore was located at mid-island, near Jensens on the Gulf, which is designated Segment 4. That area will see 137,100 cubic yards of sand replenished.continued on page 6B See map and schedule on page 4B Aerial image of the mid-island beach renourishment area photo by Jim Anderson and Joannair Pipe, pumping sand from an off-shore dredge, located at the end of Andy Rosse Lane photo by Ken Rasi Dredge vessels located off the shoreline of Captiva photo by Jim Anderson and Joannair

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 25, 20132B S anibel-Captiva L ions Club N ewsAt its last meeting, the SanibelCaptiva Lions Club presented lengths of service chevrons to two of its members; Lion Robert Bechhold with 30 years of service and Lion Dean Skaustad with 20 years. The Sanibel-Captiva Lions Club donates 100 percent of monies raised directly back into the local community. One recipient is the Trailways Camp for adults with special needs and their caregivers. The camp site is located near LaBelle right on the river. The founders of this camp and meeting speakers, Lion Gerry Miller and his wife, Sharon, have been holding these camps for over 20 years in honor of their two sons, both with disabilities. It was started because there was nothing like this available for families with adult children with disabilities. The camp is a first time experience for many of these grown men and women. It helps reduce social isolation and creates opportunities for fun, friends and support. Trailways is a unique experience that helps to develop social connections and recreational skills through bonfires, crafts, a talent show, fishing and games. It is an intense, fun filled, memory building time for these adults. This year, the oldest camper was 67 and had never been to camp before. In Lee County, there are over 1,000 identified adults who are eligible to attend. In 2014, the Millers plan to expand to three camps to be held in February, April and October. Volunteers are needed from musicians, story tellers, nature lovers and artists. The camp is also in need of a fishing ramp and pier to help access the river which presents a steep drop. Lion Gerry said, There is just no way to describe how it feels for an adult who catches a fish for their very first time. Lions Toby Clark, Dean Skaustad and Clint Parsons all donated their time at camp this year and shared a little of their experiences, encouraging the audience to get involved in this life changing event.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 25, 20136B Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellA great announcement came across my desk from Rotary International; Rotary has accepted a new challenge from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. This foundation has committed to match, two to one, every Rotarian dollar contributed to polio eradication for the next five years, up to (drum roll here) U.S. $35 million per year. Yes, it will cost that much but we need to keep on fighting this dreadful disease. Rotary is absolutely committed to fighting this final battle against polio and we can do it, we will do it. The Gates Foundation has supported us for some time now with their generosity and the Sanibel-Captiva Rotary will be making plans to fundraise for this cause. Details will be announced sometime in the near future. The number of polioendemic countries 25 years ago was 125; today that number is 3, thanks to Rotary and the Friends of Rotary. On another note: Congratulations to FISH (Friends in Service Here) Sanibel for their recent successful fundraising event. We also would like to congratulate one of our own Rotarians, John Pryor, part of the organizing team of the Fish 10K Run for doing such a fantastic job in raising funds to support this remarkable organization and the great work they do in our community. Not only was the Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Silver Sponsor of this event but we had boots on the ground; okay, sneakers. Our Rotary club supplied somewhere between 15 and 20 volunteers. Rotary Internationals motto is Service Above Self and so when you look around at other organizations on the island and their fundraising events, you shouldnt be surprised to find a Rotarian or two actively involved. Rotarians not only open up their checkbooks but involve themselves in worthy organizations by volunteering many man hours of service supporting these organizations. Rotarians live their motto. Enough tooting of our own horn and on to our speaker last week; Veterinarian Dr. Mark Mathusa of Beachside Animal Clinic. Dr. Mathusa and his family moved here a couple of years ago, after he sold his veterinary practice on the East Coast of Florida and opened a coastal veterinary house call practice and, more recently, the Beachside Animal Clinic on Sanibel. Dr. Mathusas animal clinic here will mostly deal with small animals but while on the East Coast of Florida, he had experience working with Marineland, Gatorland Zoo, Sea World, The Dolphin Research Group and a number of other well-known tourist attractions. He didnt go into great detail about these adventures, but he did bring present a slide show on some of his patients through the years; a potbellied pig that he called intelligent, charming and fascinating, a Shar Pei dog that I think he called a four-legged money pit and a dolphin at Sea World with a bent dorsal fin. He said that this was common for dolphins in captivity. He had slides showing a caesariansection being performed on an iguana, a domestic cat with a severe eye infection (not a pretty sight), a squirrel being neutered and other day-in-the-life of a veterinarian pictures. It all goes to prove that animals are just like people; they need a doctor from time to time. Dr. Mathusa also pointed out that although wild animals are extremely cute, they sometimes are carriers of disease. Raccoons carry worm larvae that can cause brain damage in children. Rabies can come from raccoons, skunks, and bats and the recently spotted wild monkeys on the island can carry herpes virus infection.

We are HERE for all your insurance needs Kirchner Contracting Supports Noahs Concert For The Kids No one dreams of needing first-class pediatric care at a local childrens hos pital. This was certainly true for Matt and Terri Kirchner and their son, Chance, island residents and owners of Kirchner Contracting, Inc. When the Kirchners needed first-class care, they received it at Golisano Childrens Hospital. They said, Last year, our then 13-year-old sons routine physical turned into an emergency admission into Golisano Childrens Hospital, with a diagnosis of Type 1 (juvenile) diabetes. Needless to say, we were shocked, heartbroken and frightened. From the moment we arrived at the hospital, every staff member and medical profes sional we encountered was sincerely compassionate, kind, skilled, and committed to stabilizing and caring for our son, Chance. Within a short time after his admission, Chances pediatric endocrinologist, Dr. Kahn, came to the room and spoke to Chance. He explained the condition and reas sured him that although incurable, Type 1 diabetics can live long, healthy lives through proper management of lifestyle, diet and insulin. During the remainder of Chances hospitalization, the Golisano Childrens Hospital staff reinforced this claim by surround ing the family with support, care and education, which has equipped them to manage this disease and believe that Chance will indeed live a long and healthy life. When Chance was an infant and required specialized care and surgery for another condition, the closest childrens hospital was in St. Petersburg and required hotel stays and three-hour drives each way. The ability to remain close to home while their son was hospitalized last year provided them with comfort, convenience, diminished stress, and the ability to maintain a bit of normalcy in the other aspects of their lives while they dealt with Chances condition. They are grateful to the staff of the Golisano Childrens Hospital and thankful to have such an outstanding facility located in the community. The Kirchners have joined the list of sponsors of Noahs Concert for the Kids at the Concerto level. The concert raises funds towards the capital campaign for a new dedi cated childrens facility on the HealthPark campus. Other individuals and businesses from the islands and in town are sponsoring the concert at the Virtuoso, Concerto and Soprano levels. Tickets for the concert are on sale for $50 tickets. Go online at www. NoahsConcert.com, call 395-0900, or stop by the BIG ARTS office at 900 Dunlop Road. Concert presenters expect the tickets to sell out. For sponsorship and event information, contact Joe Mondelli at joe@sanibelmarket place.com or call at 292-7083.

Last weeks surprise league leading Sandycappers stumbled a bit but stay tied for first with a 7-9 loss to Bunts Ball Busters. The top shooter for the Sandycappers was Jack Dalton with a 4-0 effortless win over Ball Buster Ken Rasi. Bob Buntrock also had a 4-0 night for the Ball Busters. Patti Frank wielded her new cue like a viking sword as she produced two of Fresh Legion Crews three wins in the match with Sanibel Caf. Jack Cunningham and Gary Murza had one win each in Island Lifers match with Odd Balls. The miracle shot of the night was produced by Dave Doane from Bunts Ball Busters. With no clear shot at the 8-ball, Doane calmly banked the cue ball off the long rail with a touch of high right English and cut the hidden 8-ball into his called corner pocket. Cheers broke out and Doane displayed his always humble nature by jumping up and down and yelling Take that! while he fist-pumped ala Tiger Woods.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 25, 201310B Royal S hell S ponsors S eahorse Project To Benefit Childrens HospitalThe Royal Shell Group of Companies has donated $5,000 to A Seahorse Dream, a not-for-profit fundraising public art project benefiting the expansion of Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida. The anticipated 200,000-square-foot new facility will increase the hospitals current 98 beds to 148 beds to better serve the more than 4,000 children admitted annually. Its hard to think of anything more important than helping kids get healthy and live their best life possible, said Randy Bacik, CEO of Royal Shell Vacations. We are proud and excited to be part of this fun endeavor to help The Childrens Hospital deliver the complex, specialty care needed to locally serve the youngest, most innocent patients. In addition to the financial contribution, Royal Shell joins other businesses in having a five-foot tall seahorse statue decorated and prominently displayed throughout the region. Royal Shells seahorse, appropriately referred to as Rochelle or Shelley, is being designed by award-winning artists of the Southwest Florida Fine Craft Guild, the areas only art league solely devoted to three-dimensional art. Beads, metal, glass, clay, stone and fiber are among the materials being used to create the mosaic seahorse. Shelley will be adorned by the Royal Shell logo created with liquid and powdered glass, beaded earrings and necklace, eyelashes made of wire, an iridescent fabric fin and other sparkling elements. This is the most fantastic and worthy cause we could ever imagine participating in, and as our group grows, we are looking for more charitable endeavors just like this, said Lorraine Capps, president of the Southwest Florida Fine Craft Guild. To follow Shelleys progress or learn more about the guild, find them on Facebook. View the finished Shelley and all the other seahorses at a public exhibit on Novmber 20 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Harborside Event Center in the historic Fort Myers River District. For several months following, the seahorses will remain on public display at various locations. A Seahorse Dream will culminate with a gala dinner and auction of select seahorses to take place on March 7 at Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort & Spa.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 25, 201312B Red Sox Back In World Series After A Remarkable Last To First 2013 Seasonby Ed FrankIf we turn back the calendar eight months when the Boston Red Sox reported here for spring training, nary a soul would have predicted that this team would be playing in the 2013 World Series. In fact, the preseason Las Vegas odds were something like 30-1. But defying those odds in a remarkable last to first season, today we find the Red Sox as American League Champions and competing in their third Fall Classic in the last 10 years. Boston and the St. Louis Cardinals, two storied franchises, both with identical 97-65 regular season records, are meeting for the fourth time in the World Series, and it marks the first matchup of teams with the leagues best records since 1999. The Cardinals defeated the Red Sox in 1946 and 1967 while Boston swept the Cards in 2004, ending an 86-year curse. As we went to press with the series start slated for Wednesday, its a bit early to start thinking about a winning celebration when the Red Sox return here in February. But the way this team has performed this year, dont be surprised if we welcome the team back as World Series champions. Bostons return to the World Series is the result of a dramatic defeat of the Detroit Tigers in the ALCS, four games to two. Heroes abounded in that series, but none more dramatic than two grand slam home runs that propelled Boston to the World Series. The first occurred in the eighth inning of Game Two by David Ortiz that tied the game at 5-5. They went on to win 6-5 in the ninth. The second grand slam-dinger literally raised the American League Championship flag above Fenway Park when Shane Victorino, who had been in a deep hitting slump, blasted the ball over the Green Monster in the seventh inning of Game Six to give the Red Sox a 5-2 lead that held up for the final two innings. The MVP in the championship series was awarded to 38-year-old Koji Uehara, the Red Sox closer, who recorded three saves and one win in the four Boston victories. His devastating splitter baffled the Tiger hitters with eight strikeouts and zero walks in those four games. As we have written previously, it would be an outrage if Red Sox manager John Farrell isnt the American League Manager of the Year. Having taken over a last-place team that suffered through 93 losses in 2012, the most in 47 years, to first an AL East Division title and now the League Championship, Farrell should be the unanimous choice for Manager of the Year. All thats left is a 2013 BoSox World Series title. We bet the champagne is ready. SPORTS QUIZ 1. How many consecutive full major-league seasons did Stan Musial hit at least .300? 2.

Your bedroom is certainly no exception. Theres no better room in your home to accentuate your personality, display your favorite treasurers, show off your family pride. More than any other decorative product you could purchase for your home, your accessories will give each and every room its own distinct personality. They help make your rooms come alive. I find collecting accessories is a neverending delight. Whenever and wherever you see something that appeals to you strongly, acquire it if possible, because it will give you pleasure every time you look at it and will add a very personal touch to your home. Your newly designed bedroom might incorporate a bit more of a romantic touch if you consider displaying accessories that will enhance the mood and over all feeling of your room. Softly glowing candles, beautifully framed family photos, a single rosebud in a crystal vase, even a dish of potpourri, will add to your romantic ambiance. Finally the floors. Depending upon what part of the country youre from, you have a variety of comfortable and decorative flooring options. If colder climates are your forte, then you must definitely consider walking on your bare bedroom floor in the winter. In this case, wall-to-wall carpet is far and away your best choice. Your next best selection would be generously sized area rugs on either side of your bed. And, actually, carpeting in your bedroom can be a bit more luxurious and colorful than elsewhere, because its not a high-traffic area, and usually not entered from outdoors. If warmer climates appeal, then your choices of flooring can be a little more varied. Ceramic tile, hardwood floors covered with beautiful and color coordinated area rugs would add a wonderful touch of texture and warmth. So... uncover the possibilities. And last, but not least, remember that your romantic bedroom redecorating project should be an enjoyable adventure. Youre not only making your new room express your personality, but youre making it more liveable and attractive. Any decorating project that involves the world of color, the fabulous furnishings and accessories that are now available, the marvelous materials for floors, walls, windows and beds is an exciting undertaking. And, above all, remember that you spend more time in your home than anyone else. Be sure your ultimate decorating choices reflect your personality and your unique sense of style.

21B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 25, 2013 Claire was a client of mine who used to spread out her money over several different banks. She chased the best interest rates for her Certificates of Deposit investments. In the end, she owned several CDs spread out in a number of different institutions. She said that in so doing she killed two birds with one stone by taking advantage of the higher teaser interest rates as well as maximizing her use of the FDIC insur ance limits should any one bank fail. She also had a number of different brokerage accounts. When Claire passed away, she had statements from Fidelity, Vanguard, Merrill Lynch, UBS and Charles Schwab. Claire had once voiced her concern that she didnt want to lose her investments by putting them all into one firm. When Claire died her estate was a bloody mess. It took several months simply to marshal her assets so that her successor trustee could decide which assets should be sold, which retained and how much of a balance she had between cash and investments inside of her portfolio. It took her trustee a very long time to consolidate her assets into a couple of accounts so that her affairs could be put in proper order to pay her taxes and administrative expenses and ultimately be distributed to her beneficiaries. So now Im going to debunk some of the most common reasons that the Claries of the world may give for spreading their assets over too many accounts: I dont want to put all of my eggs in one basket. While it is true that diversifying ones portfolio is wise, that doesnt necessarily mean having many different custodians. Consider the possibility that Claires UBS broker doesnt know what investments Claire owns in her Charles Schwab account. Both of those accounts together may own some of the same stocks resulting in Claire having a combined portfolio that isnt balanced to her needs and risk toler ance. Im afraid that if the bank goes under then Ill lose my Certificates of Deposit unless I have them spread out over several institutions. Here one must understand the FDIC (Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation) rules when you deposit money at a FDIC insured banking institution. If the account is in your individual name, the FDIC currently insures up to $250,000. But if you have the account in the name of your revocable living trust and that trust as up to five unique beneficiaries (regardless of the relative percentage each is to be distributed), then the account is insured up to $1,250,000 (or $250,000 per unique beneficiary). If you have a trust with more than five unique beneficiaries, then additional coverage is available, but the beneficiaries percentage interests must be equal. Therefore, if you title the bank deposit accounts into a qualifying trust that meets the FDIC unique beneficiary requirements, you may have quite a bit more coverage than you thought that you otherwise had at one bank. If I put all of my investments into one brokerage account, and if that firm goes under, then I will have lost my entire investment portfolio. Bernie Madoff did more to frighten individual investors than any stock market crash could do. Here you have to understand the SPIC (Securities Investor Protection Act). Assuming that your brokerage institution is a SIPC member, then if it fails, you have to under stand if it is doing so subject to a SPIC liquidation or a Chapter 7 bankruptcy proceeding. In SPIC liquidation, the goal of the SIPA trustee is to return to the customers the securities in their accounts, often through a transfer of the accounts to a financially healthy brokerage firm. When that isnt possible, the SIPA trustee has the authority to purchase securities to replace any that were missing, tapping into the SIPCs reserve fund when necessary to cover the acquisition cost. The SIPC reserve funds are available to satisfy the remaining claims of each customer up to $500,000, including a maximum of $100,000 on claims for cash. Under Chapter 7, all of the brokerage customers receive a pro-rata share of the proceeds from the sale of the securities, not from the securities themselves. So a Chapter 7 bankruptcy could be very harmful to a firms clients, although these have been extremely rare occurrences. The key here is to ensure that the brokerage firm you are dealing with is a SIPC member. The risks of spreading your portfolio out into too many financial institutions are just as real as the reasons to spread those risks out. The best bet is to ask questions and to select a few institutions that you feel are safe and trustworthy. Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at www.sbshlaw.com.

Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My daughter is in high school and is required to take notes in her history and English classes. She is really struggling with note taking. It isnt coming naturally to her. What she does instead is doodle. Any ideas on helping her? Melanie G., Bonita, Florida Melanie, Effective note taking is an important but very difficult skill to acquire. There are many different types of note taking. To become proficient with this skill, instruction and practice are required. Most schools choose one method and provide some direction in using it for the students. There needs to be a good match between the note-taking system and what a student feels comfortable using in order for a student to get any benefit from the note taking process. It sounds like your daughter is not comfortable with what she doing now and not developing this important skill. You mentioned that your daughter enjoys doodling so maybe a visual note taking system would be beneficial for her although one really doesnt need drawing ability to use this technique. Visual note taking is also known as graphic visualization or sketch noting. So what is this visual note taking? According to Craighton Berman, visual note taking or sketchnotes is, essentially about transforming ideas into visual communication; structuring thoughts and giving hierarchy to concepts can be completed with strictly text and a few lines. He continues by saying that, This form of rapid visualization forces you to listen to the lecture, synthesize whats being expressed, and visualize a composition that captures the idea all in real time. Instead of recording whats being said verbatim, good sketchnotes capture the meaningful bits as text and drawings. Better sketchnotes use composition and hierarchy to give structure to the content, and bring clarity to the overall narrative of the lecture. The best sketchnotes express a unique personal style and add editorial comments on the content entertaining and informing all at once. Are sketchnotes for everyone? Absolutely! Again Berman suggests that as we all become more engaged with our social media tweets and messages and only partially engage in a teachers or speakers presentation, a sketchnoter is focused, singularly engaged in whats being said, and is fully engaging their mind to shape something from that content on the blank page in front of them. Wendi Pillars, a national board-certified teacher in English language learning says that she enjoys using sketchnotes while teaching and so do her students, including continued on page 23B

22B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 25, 2013 deaRPharmacistMetal A llergies May C ause E czema by S uzy C ohen, R PhDear Pharmacist: I have eczema that comes and goes, and Im currently using a steroid cream which helps. I am sure when I stop the cream, it will return. Any advice? EH, Tampa, Florida There are many factors to consider when treating eczema, including the state of your digestive tract, immune system and what youre touching. First I would take high-quality probiotics because that helps both your digestive tract and immune system. Then I would eliminate common food triggers such as eggs, soy, wheat (gluten), dairy and corn. Next, look at what you touch. Some of you react to metals that contain nickel which is in coins, necklaces, eyeglasses, watches and rings, for example. A study was published in the July 2012 issue of Contact Dermatitis that is called Coin exposure may cause allergic dermatitis. We knew about this problem as far back as 1991, when a case report was published in the August issue of the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology featuring a 48-year-old cashier with hand eczema and a genuine nickel allergy. Eczema is actually common in cashiers. If I had dyshidrotic eczema (hand eczema), I would stop counting out change, which I do frequently, much to the annoyance of people standing behind me. If you are one of these folks, its easy to remedy. I suggest that you remove all your jewelry and not touch coins for a few weeks. Definitely avoid white gold and costume jewelry. Think about what you are touching, maybe a metallic pen, a cell phone, gear shifter, stainless steel pots or a laptop keyboard. I found a product that tests for nickel in your items, so your skin doesnt have to. Its called The Nickel Solution Kit by Athena Allergy. You can also buy a little bottle of Nickel Guard from that company and paint it on your glasses or your jewelry to stop the rash you would normally get from these items. Theres a prescription drug called Psorizide Forte that contains fumaric acid which blocks the skin cells from growing wildly; it contains a homeopathic form of nickel which desensitizes you to nickel. Also by prescription, Eczemol tablets by Plymouth Pharmaceuticals. Thinking about a skin prick test or intradermal injections to gauge allergic reactions to metal? Um, can I just say no? Metal hypersensitivity blood tests are better. Visit www.melisa.org to find a suitable lab. The MELISA test detects sensitivities to gold, cobalt, chromium, palladium, titanium, tin, nickel, cadmium, mercury and others. This test may help someone with autism, scoliosis, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and osteoporosis. Your physician orders the blood test for you. Theres much more including soothing creams, teas, home remedies and medications all in my Eczema: Itchin For A Cure book, only available for E-readers on Amazon. You should also peruse the website for the National Eczema Foundation at www.eczema.org This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

For more information, call 472-0345 or visit www.mysanibel.com. by Karen L. Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAML(03-12)From a Western view, liver (LV) acts as a chemical refinery responsible for metabolizing and distributing nutrients, removing dead cells and toxins, transforming other nutrients into glucose for energy to the cells. From a Traditional Chinese Medicine view, LV has more responsibilities including providing for a smooth flow of blood and energy to every cell in the body thus named The Commander of the Blood; making certain there is a perpetual balance and flow between blood, energy and emotions, enabling for openness to new ideas and experiences. If blocked energy in LV, one will find it difficult to express and release emotions creating dis-ease, which may manifest in: upper back tightness, blurry vision (LV controls the eyes), candida, chest tightness, eye disease, fungus, hypertension, low sperm count, menopause issues, irregular periods, or PMS. LV with gallbladder govern muscles, tendons, ligaments and nails. As a Reminder, view the August 9 and 16 and columns, since the basics of tracing are set forth. Meridian flow wheel time of day. LV meridians high tide is 1 to 3 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 1:30 a.m. (you definitely have an energy imbalance), then begin with LV. 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 LV if you have some of the symptoms listed in the opening paragraph or if you experience thick toenails, toxicity or avoid wearing the color green. Affirmation for this meridian is, I am kind to myself. 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. Do both sides at the same time. Place fingers at the inside base of the big toe nail (beside the second toe); move hands up inside of the leg flaring out slightly by the hips; continue up the side of the rib cage and then to first rib under the breast in line with the nipple. Thats it. You just traced liver 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 dis-ease 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 liver while you learn the next four meridians over the next month.

Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: Can you give me some suggestions on how to reframe stressful situations to make them seem less stressful?A: The late Albert Ellis, PhD was the founder of the Rational Emotive Institute and has written extensively on the irrational beliefs we all have at times and how to reframe them. We all have an inner committee, that internal critic who talks in a harsh, judgmental, self-deprecating way. You can listen to this condescending and judgmental parental voice, which offers no viable solution, or you can be your own best coach, and like any good coach, you can constructively seek understanding and awareness of the sources of irrational thinking and look for helpful suggestions for changing to rational thinking. By shifting irrational thinking into rational thinking, you can eliminate fears and catastrophic thoughts. When you think catastrophically, you anticipate the worst possible outcome accompanied by the worst consequences. Naturally, this creates unnecessary stress. Thoughtful examination of these statements will speed you on your way to breaking the thought-stress syndrome. Answer the questions below and begin practicing reframing anytime you catch yourself thinking irrationally. Exercise: Reframing Stressful Situations 1. Describe a situation or event when you catastrophized and created stress and tension. 2. How can you reframe this situation to view it as positive? 3. What action plan could be implemented to improve the situation? 4. What are your natural strengths and gifts that can be applied to this situation? 5. Describe how you can maximize your natural strengths to reduce and eliminate catastrophizing in the future. Note: Remind yourself to stay focused on the present. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by staying right here in this moment. It is when we begin to think about the future that our anxiety develops. This, in turn, can result in catastrophic thinking. All we have is now. Be your own inner champion, listen in a positive, encouraging and constructive way to information that comes to you. Choose to be your own best friend. Use constructive rather than destructive criticism. Take responsibility for your actions and view mistakes only as learning experiences from which growth can occur. 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, Our 85-year-old father was widowed two years ago and my sister and I would like him to move into a retirement complex. He lives in the family home with a year-old dog. The dog is his faithful companion and gets better care than most children. Our father has isolated himself, is lonely and has commented that he never thought widowhood would be so terrible and he now knows he didnt appreciate what he had. He is deter mined to stay because he likes his home. What do you suggest we do to try to convince him? Mary Liz Dear Mary Liz, Why try to convince him to do something you want him to do? He has lost his wife, your mother, now you want him to lose his home and sense of independence? Why not try to support him in his own home? If you think he is depressed, ask him to be evaluated by his physician. If you think he is lonely and isolated, ask him if that is how he feels, (Not how you think he feels). If he does feel lonely and isolated, open a discussion about how to reduce those feelings through community service and programming. Pryce Dear Mary Liz, If your father has decided to stay in his own home, that is his decision and his right and no amount of talking will change his mind. His memories are there and he feels comfortable there so that is where he should be. However, he may find it increasingly difficult and decide himself to make a change at a future date.

Storage Unit Sale raised $3,500 for PACE Center for Girls Lee. The post-event sale offered dresses that were not purchased at the Love That Dress! 5 event. The sale took place on Saturday, October 5 at San Carlos Self-Storage, a LTD! 5 sponsor, who stored all of the dresses and provided tagging facilities for this years event. We are very happy with the turnout from our first post-LTD! Storage Unit Sale. We sur passed our initial goal of raising $3,000 for PACE by this event, Sutton said. Those that were unable to attend the main event had the opportunity to support PACE while getting fabulous clothing for 50 percent off. PACE donated the gowns that were not sold at the storage unit sale to Hope Chest, and the remaining clothing was given to Goodwill. Through a partnership with Goodwill, PACE receives vouchers for their girls when Goodwill receives clothing donations in the name of PACE. The girls from the PACE center redeem these vouchers for clothing or other needed items found at Goodwill. The girls at PACE often come to the center with very little clothing or belong ings. These vouchers allow them to purchase things they need for themselves or their families, which takes away some of the burden, especially during the holidays, Sutton said. Shoppers who were unable to attend the event had another chance to shop Love That Dress 5! organizers and PACE girls assisted customers Last Chance To See Sinking World Exhibit At The Alliance For The ArtsSince it opened on October 4, hundreds of people have visited the Alliance for the Arts to see Austrian photographer Andreas Frankes Sinking World exhibit.
