This week, many will note that a year has passed since Superstorm Sandy swaggered ashore in southern New Jersey, forever changing the face of the New York-New Jersey coastline and the lives of the many people who live, work and play there. One-year anniversaries are always significant, but even more so after a major disaster. The wounds are still fresh, the memories still clear. After all the suffering and disruption, a year later we hope to finally have everything back in order, back to normal. But normal is a relative term, the differ ence between outward appearances and inner equilibrium. For those who lived in an area hard hit by a storm, normal connotes so many things intangibles that cannot be rebuilt, repainted and restored. A place may be recovered or restored, but for those who remember what it once was things dont look nor mal yet and they never may. In our electronic world, we are used to rebooting and having things return to the way they were. Unfortunately, rebooting the areas devastated by Superstorm Sandys wrath is not that easy. A year later, however, much has been accomplished: destroyed communities has been hauled away. Not only is the hauling difficult, but finding a place to put essentially decades worth of construction and debris is a huge challenge. rebuilt, a challenging task that is crucial for other recovery efforts to take place. utilities that rely on them) have been replaced. Until you see the endless line of trucks from electric companies heading into your area, you cannot begin to understand the complexity of rebuilding a communitys electrical grid on the fly. business, a crucial recovery for communities both coastal and inland, since coastal areas are proven economic engines whose impact stretches far from the beach or port. es is a continuing process that requires environmental permitting, engineering plans, construction plans followed by implementation. Individually, each is a considerable undertaking; together, the effort is monumental and all are governed by a very tight deadline: to restore protective beaches and dune systems before the next storm season. Still, a year later, communities are wrestling with what may be the hardest issue of all: How to best rebuild? Each of us has an emotional attachment to home, combined with a personal and financial need to get things back to the way they were. However, replacing what was once there isnt an option in many locations for an assortment of reasons: building rules have changed in an effort to make buildings safer and more storm-resistant; the fear of recurring disaster; and because loss drives many communities to rebuild better rather than faster. Federal funding has been appropriated by Congress, but distribution is complicated and construction takes time. Theres also a desire to learn from Sandys devastation to learn how to make communities more resilient, to make crucial infrastructure more secure and to make adjustments along the coast responding to the changes that science and experience tell us are coming. One year after Sandy, what is clear is that wide beaches and high dunes will keep storm waves and rising tides away from upland infrastructure and property. What is clear is that the way we look at the coast has to change away from looking at coastal issues and answers in isolation and toward a broader, more tions) taken on one piece of shoreline can influence what happens across a much larger region. However, two things are most clear: Wider beaches coupled with taller dunes provide proven storm damage protection; and, even in the face of deadly disaster, people want to rebuild and return to the coast. That instinct has never waned and is evidenced by over 53 percent of the nations population living within 50 miles of the coast. So the conversation should not be whether to allow it, but rather how to do it right. For more information, go to www. asbpa.org, Facebook or www.twitter. com/asbpa.

From page 1Inaugural Poetof both natural and constructed environments, cherishing the interdisciplinary nature of his work which draws, in its construction, on his study of the science of civil engineering and of the humanities. Blanco is a builder of poems as well as cities. He holds a bachelors of science in civil engineering and masters in fine arts and creative writing from Florida International University. By day he is a professional civil engineer, and by night an award winning poet. His work is full of social and cultural awareness and of the diversity in American life. His volume, Looking for The Gulf Motel (2012), evokes a vanishing Florida that we love, a place of ecological memories being erased. I want to turn the golf courses back into mangroves, he writes. The Centers fundraising events help advance environmental and sustainability education through innovative educational research methods and other measures.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 1, 201310 10K Race 4 FISH Draws Largest Field Of RunnersA record-breaking number of runners 496 participated in the 5th annual 10K Race 4 FISH on October 19. Approximately 90 percent of the runners came from all over the state of Florida, but the race also drew participants from Switzerland, Canada as well as 10 other states. The race began at 7:30 a.m. at The Community House, and followed a marked 10K circuit around the island, returning to The Community House for the finish line. The economic impact of this event has been evidenced by the number of people who were hoping to book rooms with us this weekend, said Bob Kramm, general manager at Sundial Beach Resort & Spa. After Sundial had been booked for the weekend, he placed calls to other establishments on the island hoping to help other customers find rooms, but was told that everyone was booked for the race. Its not just FISH who benefits from this, but the community as a whole. Its impressive how professionally theyve managed this event, Kramm added. This years race was sponsored by 73 local businesses and organizations, beginning with the premier sponsor, The Sanibel Captiva Trust Company. More than 120 volunteers signed up to help make the race another huge success. The overall race winner was Oscar Corredor, 28, of Cape Coral, who finished in 37 minutes and 16 seconds. And, returning to defend her 2012 title for the overall female winner was Rachel Lee, 43, of Cape Coral, who completed the race in 39 minutes and 3 seconds. This year, there was a record of 16 awards taken home by Sanibel runners. FISH of Sanibel, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that lends a helping hand to those in need on Sanibel or Captiva who live or work here. Money raised during the 10K race helps fund all of their services including emergency financial assistance to our clients, food pantry, childrens backpack food program, nonemergency medical transport on and off the island, temporary loan of health equipment and daily hot meals program. We are extremely proud of everyone who has helped us with another successful event. We had a fantastic runner turnout this year and enormous support from sponsors, said John Pryor, co-chairman of the FISH 10K Committee. We would like to thank the Fort Myers Track Club for their superb technical direction and assistance both before and during the race. Thank you to everyone who helped us raise the funds that will allow us to continue to provide a full range of human services to our island neighbors. We applaud everyone who has helped us make our FISH 10K a permanent feature in the island calendar for many years to come. We couldnt ask for better support from the City of Sanibel, police department, service organizations, our sponsors and notably, our great volunteers who helped bring all of this together. Thanks were offered to Dave Horton, for creating another logo for this years race, and Nori Ann Reed, the 10K volunteer coordinator responsible for recruiting and managing the entire staff. Also, thanks go to Richard Johnson (Baileys General Store) and Blanaid Colley (Coffee Bar at Baileys) for arriving bright and early on race day to take care of runners and volunteers by serving fruit, snacks, bagels and hot coffee.

13 ISLAND SS UN NN OVEMBER 1, 2013 RR otary Happenings submitted by SS hirley JewellThe season is heating up on the island, and Friday mornings Rotary Club meeting reflected that with numerous announcements for upcoming social and volunteer events. Skimming through the usual Friday morning meeting rituals, we had a crowded agenda to get on with. The first serious item on the agenda was the installation of Sanibel-Captiva Rotarys three newest members. The club membership chair, Janet Strickland, and club president, Scot Congress installed Dorrie Hipschman, museum director at The Bailey-Mathew Shell Museum; Holli Martin, insurance administrator at Heidrick & Co. Insurance; and Angela Larson Roehl, insurance agent at Rosier Insurance. Club Rotarians welcome these new members and look forward to working with them on a number of upcoming activities throughout this Rotary year. The morning also brought to the podium Dr. Heather Barron, Hospital Director at CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife). Some of us remember the modest beginnings of CROW in 1968, but with the dedication and commitment of staff and volunteers, this organization now cares for as many as 4,000 wildlife patients each year. Dr. Barron has a wonderful way of connecting with her audience, and if that is an indication of how she handles her responsibilities at CROW, we should all step back and pay attention to an organization that is now taking their original mission of Saving Wildlife Through Care, Education and Collaboration and expanding on that to include an interdisciplinary approach to study the relationship between ecological, human and animal health. She described this approach as a One World, One Health Concept connecting the study of human health, animal health and environment health conser vation medicine. Dr. Barron uses a self-deprecating, humorous approach to getting her audiences attention. Her self-described life story is titled, My Life On The D-List, 20 Years Of Special Species Medicine. She certainly has a number of impressive credentials connected with her experience in the special species veterinary field, but as she pointed out, this was not exactly the most popular or lucrative branch of veterinary practice to go into back when she got into the field. She knows that some people have the opinion that CROW is some crazy wildlife group version of the crazy cat-lovers club or they are not-sosecret bunny-huggers society, but even with some small grain of truth to that, their mission goes above and beyond. CROWs veterinary hospital provides many opportunities for research and study of the environmental impact on our wildlife and that study can bring forth important information connecting this impact on human health. CROW works with a number of scientists and doctors at local, state and national institutions to improve the understanding of inter-related problems. One of the examples Dr. Barron spoke of was the connection between West Nile Virus and Avian Influenza. She stated that global warming is bringing about atmospheric conditions that allow mosquitoes to go higher into the atmosphere and connect with birds. West Nile Virus is transmitted to birds through the bite of infected mosquitoes. Some birds that are predators (such as hawks and owls) or scavengers (such as crows) may become infected after eating sick or dead birds that were already infected with West Nile Virus. Mosquitoes become infected by biting infected birds. Mosquitoes infect and transmit West Nile to people. With 4,000 wildlife patients a year, CROW is given a frontline oppor tunity to not only care for injured and sick wildlife, but to gather information regarding cause and effect of disease carried by these animals.continued on page 29 Dr. Heather Barron, CROW Hospital Director Dorrie Hipschman, Holli Martin, Angela Larson Roehl and Janet Strickland Physical Therapy, Massage Therapy & Pilates Phone # 239-395-5858 7am-9pm 7 days a week (Summer hours vary) 239-395-1919Hours: 8am-5pm Monday-Saturday Phone # 239-472-5777 Showroom Hours: 8am-4pm Monday-Friday Phone # 239-472-1101Administrative Ofces & Classrooms Phone # 239-472-9700 Conveniently located on Periwinkle Way across from Sanibel Community Park

An upcoming field trip on Friday, November 15, for the curious or those that like heavy machinery, hot fires and noisy trucks is sponsored by SCCF. The tour of Lee Countys Recycling and Waste To Energy Center is insightful. Big green trucks rumble down the island roads, taking away black and white bags that have been dutifully placed at the curb by residents. Once those trucks cross over the causeway, which way do they go? Milk jugs, cardboard boxes, newspapers and spaghetti jars all go in one recycle bin. The way in which it is all sorted is a maze of conveyor belts and machines puffing air. By the time things pass through the over half mile of switchbacks and drop chutes, all of our unwanted receptacles are neatly separated, crunched and bound for Tampa and points north to be reused in some form or another. It is a staggering sight to witness all of the sorting and why we are asked not to bag up our recyclables. Next stop is building two, which has the control center, tipping floor and fur naces. Ear plugs and hard hats will be supplied by Covanta, the company continued on page 29 Otter Tales At SCCFNo one knows how many river otters live on Sanibel and Captiva. River otters are strong and graceful swimmers that capture the hearts of all who see them. Otters are abundant now on Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) trails and water is high in the wetlands with plenty of crayfish for them to eat. Otter Tales begins at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, November 6 in the SCCF auditorium. Cost of the program is $5 per adult and free for SCCF members and children. SCCF is located at 3333 Sanibel-Captiva Road. Call 472-2329 for more informa tion. After the talk, attendees may take a walk on the trails and they may be lucky enough to see the mother and baby otters. Caroline Wainwright Adler and Christopher Perry Diette were wed on August 10, 2013. The ceremony was officiated by Rev. John Hughes at the First Parish Church in Manchester-by-the-Sea, Massachusetts.

MERCURY MARINER JOHNSON EVINRUDE SUZUKI YAMAHA OMC I/O'S MERCRUISER Serving Sanibel & Captiva For Life Your Bottom Specialist Call on Paint Prices 1 Cold Front Creek Fishingby Capt. Matt MitchellThe first real cold front of fall blew through this week cooling our temperatures drastically and bringing windy conditions for several days, Anglers who found places to hide out of the wind on the low tides discovered the fishing was still good with snook and trout both feeding well. Trips this week produced good numbers of fish along with a few shots at slotsized or better snook. Water clarity really improved too as our water temperature dropped more than 10 degrees in four days. Narrow, deep feeder finger creeks in the Ding Darling Refuge made for awesome action this week. Chumming with live shiners in these creeks had fish exploding on the surface. Snook, trout and jacks gave us non-stop action at times when we found the right creek with strong tide movement. After not fishing way back in these creeks since last spring it felt good to get back in the Ding and catch some quality fish so close to home. Limits of trout came easy although getting a slot-sized snook took a little more work. Having plenty of live shiners was the key to getting the action going and catching good fish. If you struggled to get the right bait you would struggle to catch fish. Blacking out the livewell came pretty easy on the causeway most days if you got on the bridge before sun-up. I dont ever remember seeing so much perfectly sized twoto three-inch bait on the bridges as there is right now. Often the bait would be up on the surface and look like rain as birds and mackerel fed. Chumming live shiners adds such a visual aspect to fishing. I chum with a wiffle ball bat that has the end cut off and a plug placed in the handle. After putting a scoop of shiners in the bat shake them up stunning them so they do not just swim off when pitched out. This simple tool lets you pitch the baits out further from the boat in a specific direction. A few dozen stunned shiners thrown out in a creek or on a shoreline quickly lets you know if you are in the right place as the fish will blow up on the baits within minutes. Different types of fish make differ ent pops on the baits. Trout slash at the baits on the surface, while snook make a sound like a depth charge when they eat. Once the hungry fish are feeding on the surface you can catch them by free-lining hooked live shiners or by casting shiner-type artificials and even flies. One of my favorite plugs to throw while doing the bait and switch is a Mirrodine in a shiner pattern silver with a green back, This neutral buoyancy bait works just at and below the surface and with a slow twitching retrieve its just deadly and works as well if not better than the real thing in certain situations. Chug Bug and Skitterwalk surface type plugs also work well for this. While targeting snook in the refuge one day this week a client had a 20-inch snook hooked up and was bringing it to the boat when a giant 40-inch-plus snook shot out from the depths and inhaled the fish right next to the boat as we all were watching, The huge 25-pound plus snook made one quick run before the smaller snook pulled out of its mouth. It was completely scaled up from the gills back. No matter how much time I spend on the water I still see things that I have never seen before, Its a snook eat snook world out there. Capt.

19 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 1, 2013 Captiva Island Historical Society Exhibit Room Could Open Next YearThe Captiva Island Historical Society, established in 2011, has become an active organization with a mission of preserving the history of the people and events that characterize Captiva Island. Recently, the society was presented with an extraordinary opportunity which came with the remodeling of the Captiva Community Center on Chapin Lane. A dedicated space in the reconstruction has been made available to illustrate Captivas unique and diverse history. The exhibit area will be accessed through the Captiva Memorial Library, while its other neighbors include the Captiva Community Centers social hall, Chapel-by-the-Sea and the Captiva Cemetery. After several months of planning, an exhibit design and fabrication company, Wilderness Graphics of Tallahassee, has been chosen to assist in the development of the project. They proposed that the history space take on the wooden look of the inte rior of the old mail boat, Santiva, which serviced the islands prior to the construction of the Sanibel Causeway. The space will feature interpretive panels and touch screen access to historic photos sure to pique ones historical interest. In addition visitors will be able to look through the windows of the boat to views that passengers saw as they cruised between Fort Myers and Captiva.

21 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 1, 2013 CROW Case Of The Week Bald Eagleby Patricia MolloyDuring the opening sequence of Colbert Report, a bald eagle the majestic emblem of our fair nation since 1782 swoops in front of the screen accompanied by a piercing shrill. The strong, intimidating call with which audiences are so familiar is... a myth. Hollywood has long substituted the call of the red-tailed hawk with that of the bald eagle; for such a large, powerful bird, the bald eagle emits a sur prisingly unimpressive call. The raptor with the seven-foot wingspan, however, makes up for its vocal shortcomings with stunning aerial acrobatics. Early this month, a female bald eagle was admitted to CROW with a gaping wound in the pectoral muscle (chest). The laceration was carefully cleaned and an antiseptic ointment was applied to fight infection. Dr. Heather order a round of antibiotics, which were injected into a fish that was fed to the patient for breakfast. Administering medications in this manner allows the staff to keep its interactions with the eagle at a minimum. Fortunately, bald eagles have a poorly developed sense of smell and often do not detect the medication. After nearly a week at the wildlife clinic, the eagle was regaining strength rapidly. They looked at her wound and it looked fine, so as long as shes clinically normal, she is going outside. She will probably go outside once shes done with her antibiotics, said Katie McInnis, DVM intern. The staff at CROW goes to great lengths to ensure that the wildness of each patient remains intact during its stay. Due to the high-strung nature of bald eagles, patient #2815 had a private room in the clinics quiet ICU. Team members entered her room only to feed her and to ensure that her cage was clean. Nonetheless, the eagle was bothered by the human intrusions. She needs to get out of here because she is very upset with us, added Dr. McInnis with a sympathetic smile. The eagle was indeed moved to a large outdoor flight cage on CROWs campus, where Dr. Heather can quietly observe her movements from a distance. She has not yet been released as she is not yet flying normally. But she is outside and seems to be healing well, said the hospital director. 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.

23 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 1, 2013 Plant SmartClimbing Figby Gerri R eavesClimbing fig (Ficus pumila) is a fast-growing woody vine of the mulberry family. This native of Southeast Asia is an attractive ornamental, but in South Florida, this species requires regular pruning to keep it under control. Also called creeping fig, it has high drought tolerance and adapts to almost any soil or light conditions. The aggressive vine doesnt need support to get started. It will climb and keep on going, clinging with aerial rootlets that exude a rubbery adhesive. Its generally agreed that it works best as a groundcover or on a concrete wall where surface damage wont be a concern. The tendrils adhere strongly to a surface and are difficult to remove. Allowing it to grow on a wood structure is not advised. The dense evergreen foliage of oval leaves protrudes a foot or more from the wall, creating a kind of hanging jungle. The leathery leaves are oval, blunt, and two to four inches long. Not only can the foliage take over, but the underground roots can cause problems too. The fleshy pale-green figs that are about the size of hens egg appear on horizontal branches that develop on mature vines. The seeds and plant parts are poisonous and even handling them might cause skin irritation of an allergic reaction. Balanced against the vines aggressiveness and high maintenance are attractiveness and energy savings. Given time, it can cover an entire building and produce a protective layer from the suns heat. It also makes a good hanging plant. Climbing fig can be propagated with cuttings. Sources: Florida Landscape Plants by John V. Watkins and Thomas J. Sheehan; Florida, My Eden by Frederic B.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 1, 201324 Lets SHOP Till We Drop Enjoy a meal with us in our French Cafe atmosphere.Dine inside or out. Youll love our pet-friendly outdoor patio! Birds Eye ViewMy Alligator Bite, Part IIIby Mark Bird WestallYou know how people who have risky occupations, like first responders and the military, have strict protocols to follow when doing their dangerous work in order to maximize their success without injury? If you are doing something potentially dangerous and you let your guard down or become careless, serious injury may result. Well, here I was with a one-eyed, big gator that had to be moved. it was starting to get dark; I was tired and anxious to get home; and I had been successful in using a very risky maneuver in capturing an alligator like this one in the past, so I thought it might work a second time. He was now just off the bike path where we first found him and lying in some tall grass. I decided I was going to have to lasso him and drag him across the San-Cap Road, but couldnt get the rope to completely encircle his head because of the tall grass blades sticking up. In a moment of carelessness and noticing his sightless left eye, I decided to take the lasso and slowly approach the gator from his blind-side and slip the noose gently over his head. They say that when something terrible happens to you, time slows down. I can still see that lone, tall blade of grass slowly bending over towards the gators face as I inched my right leg ever so close to him. In my mind, it happens so slowly that you would think I could see where it was heading and move my leg away before it was too late. But in reality, it all happened very quickly and the big, angry gator reacted in an instant! The blade of grass leaned over and touched the side of his jaw and the gator immediately moved his head sideways in my direction, mouth wide open. Theres a saying that if a bird was stupid enough to sit on a gators tail (thinking its a log), the gator could spring around and catch it before the bird could fly away. In this instant I learned from experience that approaching a gator from the side is actually more dangerous than approaching him from the front. As he sprang to the attack and snapped his mouth shut, I tried to jump away, but my leg was already in his mouth. Luckily, the bite was more of a glancing blow that only dug into my flesh in a few places. But to give you an idea of how big he was, the teeth on one side of his jaw went into the top of my foot, just above my tennis shoe. And a big tooth on the other side tore the flesh a few inches below my knee. Im not sure he even realized that he had me because as soon as he bit down, he immediately let go and moved his head in the opposite direction and snapped again, this time finding nothing but air. The police officers who were there assisting me, immediately dragged me away from the gator and I tried to stand. I was now very angry (I think more at myself for being so foolish and not at the gator who was only trying to protect himself) and my adrenaline was obviously flowing, so I grabbed the lasso again and, this time, quickly threw the rope over his head and caught him. The two officers and I dragged him across San-Cap Road (fighting us all the way) and we let him go into the woods where he was trying to go all along. As I said, the bite was more of a glancing blow, but by the time I got the gator across the road I could hardly walk. In just a few minutes, my leg where the teeth tore the flesh was so swollen they had to cut the jeans I was wearing to look at the wounds. Some 15 years later, the physical scars are mostly gone now, but I am still numb in that part of my leg. Mentally, for several months, I had a recurring dream where I was standing waist-deep in water in a darkened pool (I could never see the edges of the pool), armed with only a long pole and there would be this big gator slowly swimming towards me. With no avenue of escape, I would spend the whole dream steering the gator away from me with the pole, whereby he would quietly follow the poles lead, but once out of reach he would again slowly turn in the water and start swimming towards me again. I think that was the instinctive part of my brain at work. Intellectually, I learned that experience is a wonderful thing, if it doesnt kill you! I have been hurt many times by wild animals and every time the reason was because I was doing something that made the animal feel that they, or their young, were in danger (that theorem would probably not hold true in Africa). If I just pay attention and learn their rules, the wildlife and I can get along just fine. Humans, on the other hand, I dont trust so much. I never walk in front of a car in a parking lot when the driver motions for me to pass in front of him; I turn and walk behind the car!

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 1, 201326 D ing D ays Photo Contest WinnersDing Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge announced the winners of its 26th annual Amateur Nature Photography Contest at a special Conservation Art Day presentation in the Refuge Visitors Education Center, part of the weeklong Ding Darling Days celebration on Sanibel. Judges had selected 13 winners out of 74 entries from 19 states and four countries. All photographs entered were shot at J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel Island. First place went to Michael Dougherty of Clarkston, Michigan, for his Green Heron at Sunrise image. I was torn between it and the Yellow-Crowned Night Heron (that took third place), said judge Laura Ball, a local professional artist. I loved the contrasts in color in this one how the leaves brought out the orange color in the birds neck. Craig Goettsch from Colorado Springs, Colorado, took second place with a photo of a reddish egret doing its fishing dance. The color balance is beautiful and the composition exceptionally good, said David Lee, a visiting photographer from England, who stepped in to judge for a refuge staff member due to government shutdown furloughs. In third place was Massimo Montanari from Italy. His shot portrays a yellowcrowned night heron preparing for liftoff. I like the composition, said local professional photographer John Swank, the third contest judge. Its technically sharp and well done and representative of the refuge one of my favorite birds. We always choose three judges for the contest, said Terry Baldwin, contest chair. A refuge staff member, a professional photographer, and a member of the Sanibel community. We again thank David Lee for taking the place of refuge biologist Jeremy Conrad. The three winners received cash awards at the presentation on Saturday -$100 for first place, $75 for second, and $50 for third.

31 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 1, 2013 Monday Night MovieNoby Di SaggauThe BIG ARTS movie for Monday night November 4 is No, an Oscarnominated, Spanishlanguage film and dense chronicle of the event that led to Chiles first democratically elected government in 17 years. It stars Gael Garcia Bernal as the man behind the ad campaign that convinced the people of Chile in 1988 to vote against allowing dictator Augusto Pinochet to extend his reign by eight years. The people of the South American country rose up, took their fate in their own hands and voted No. It was a historic moment that forever changed the future of their country. The film is an inspiring look at how, due to international pressure, Pinochet is forced to call a plebiscite on his presidency. Chilean director Pablo Larrain delves deep into the behind-the-scenes machinations of political marketing. Opposition leaders persuade Rene Saavedra to spearhead the campaign. Against all odds, with scant resources and under scrutiny of the despots minions, Saavedra and his team devise an audacious plan to win the election and set Chile free. Garcia Bernal gives an impassioned performance as Saavedra, the brash, young advertising executive who spearheaded the campaign. No portrays a decisive transitional chapter in Chilean history that yields an absorbing account of one countrys unlikely route from oppression to democracy. Its a smart, darkly funny take on modern democracy and human nature. The film runs 115 minutes. Admission to BIG ARTS Monday Night Film Series is $8 and all screenings begin at 7 p.m. in Schein Performance Hall. Each film is followed by a complimentary reception and discussion in Phillips Gallery. Sponsors are Bank of the Islands and Stan and Visnja Gembicki. Supporters are Sanibel Taxi, Jerrys Foods of Sanibel and John R. Wood Real Estate. BIG ARTS is located at 900 Dunlop Road.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 1, 201332 O ne-M an Play A bout Parkinsons A nd Its E ffectsHow would you cope with the news that your wife has a lifethreatening disease? If you were comedian Marc Jaffe, youd learn to laugh about it. Thats exactly what he did in his play Side Effects May Include Side Effects May Include is a daringly funny, poignant and provocative one-man show about early onset Parkinsons disease and the effects this can have on both the patient and their caregivers. The show is on a national tour and will be performing at The Community House on Wednesday, November 13 at 7:30 p.m. Jaffe co-wrote the play along with Emmy nominated Broadway playwright Eric Coble in an attempt to help him cope with the pressures of his wifes diagnosis. Karen Jaffe is a prominent physician in their home town of Cleveland, Ohio and was diagnosed with Parkinsons several years ago. In a situation similar to that in the play, their attempts to deal with the disease privately were made more difficult by the side effects of the countless medications she was required to take. Jaffes fictional alter-ego is Phil Rosen, a middle-aged stand-up comedian living a reasonably happily married life. His only complaint is his wife Maggies waning sex drive. This provides ample fodder for his stand-up act until she is diagnosed with Parkinsons disease and their life takes an unexpected turn. Side Effects May Include is the story of a couples love and devotion in the midst of coping with the heartache of an escalating mountain of pills, dangerous (yet faithful) liaisons, marital secrets revealed, questions of manhood and womanhood, age and desire. Comedy is pain plus time, said Jaffe, a stand-up comedian himself who is best known for his work writing for Seinfeld and for material he created for Mad About You star Paul Reiser. For comedy Andrew J. Pond stars in Side Effects May Include photos by Scott Richardson Andrew J. Pond in Side Effects May Include photos by Scott Richardson Playwright Marc Jaffe Americas White Table A t S anibel Public L ibrarysubmitted by Cathy Cameron, S anibel Public L ibraryThe Sanibel Public Library is honor ing veterans on Monday, November 11 with the white table, a tribute to veterans and the subject of the childrens book, Americas White Table. The white table is a tradition that started during the Vietnam War as a symbol for and remembrance to service members held prisoner or war or missing in action. The white table has been set across America in mess halls and at military events for almost 30 years. The symbolism includes a white cloth to honor a soldiers pure heart and a lemon slice and grains of salt to show a captive soldiers bitter fate and tears of families waiting for loved ones to return. An empty chair is pushed to the table for the missing soldiers who are not here. A black napkin is laid down for the sorrow of captivity, and a turned over glass for the meal that wont be eaten. A white candle is placed for peace, and a red rose in a vase tied with red ribbon is for the hope that all our missing will return some day. Library staffer Betsy Eidem, daughter of a U.S. Air Force veteran, is putting together the display, with assistance from Reference Librarian Candy Heise, a U.S. Army veteran. The white table originated during the time of the Vietnam War as a symbol of missing and captive service members. POWs were released in 1973 following the Paris Peace Agreement. A group called the Red River Valley Fighter Pilots Association, or the River Rats, set the first MIA/POW Remembrance Table. This group of airmen came from different branches of the armed forces, and took their name from the missions flown into North Vietnam and the combat zone surrounding Hanoi along the Red River. In the spirit of brotherhood, the River Rats pledged themselves to taking care of their own and having reunions once the war ended, but initially held practice reunions while still in Southeast Asia and America. It was at the first practice reunion that the table was set in remembrance of fallen and missing comrades, according to Americas White Table author Margot Theis Raven. The River Rats today provide scholarship money to children of airmen killed during training or missing and killed in action in Americas conflicts. The white table will be on display on Veterans Day, Monday, November 11 at the Sanibel Public Library, 770 Dunlop Road, during library hours, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. S anibel Writers ConferenceA free evening of readings and music will take place before the 8th annual Sanibel Writers Conference at BIG ARTS that starts at 6:15 p.m. on Thursday, November 7. Beverages will be served. The evening begins with a reading by Kristen Iversen from her book Full Body Burden. The book is a memoir and a factual accounting of the Rocky Flats nuclear plant outside Denver, Colorado. Islanders Marge and Joe Meek are will welcome their niece Kris back to Sanibel and they hope the public will attend the reading. Her reading will be followed by a musical performance by Craig Finn, songwriter, musician and lyricist. On Friday, November 8, the audience will hear Darin Strauss, award winning author and bestselling novelist, and a musical performance by Dan Bern, songwriter and electric performer. Saturday night, featured guests will be Emma Trelles, poet, and Richard Blanco, President Obamas 2013 inaugural poet. The conference is the yearly gather ing of academics, writers and students brought together by Florida Gulf Coast University. BIG ARTS is located at 900 Dunlop Road.

I was pretty quickly able to look at painful events and find the funny things. He says there is universal humor in how we care for our spouses. Parkinsons disease is a chronic, degenerative neurological disorder with symptoms that can progress from mild tremors to complete physical incapacitation. In the United States, 60,000 new cases of will be diagnosed this year alone. While the average age of onset is 60, an estimated five to 10 percent of people with Parkinsons experience onset at age 40 or younger. Ten percent of the proceeds from Side Effects May Include benefit Shaking With Laughter, a not-for-profit organization that was established by the Jaffes in support of the Michael J. Fox Foundation. According to the Michael J. Fox Foundation, Marc Jaffe has approached his difficult topic and his familys private challenges with humor and a sense of optimism. And those are two attributes that all of us at the Michael J. Fox Foundation particularly prize. I believe in paying it forward. I love the sense that I am contributing to a very worthwhile cause, said Wendy Kaplan, the Executive Producer of MadKap Productions, when asked why she is taking this show around the country and helping raise Parkinsons awareness. Weve had Parkinsons sufferers thank us for letting them laugh for an hour. The show isnt just for people afflicted with Parkinsons disease. The play talks about love and devotion and the lengths that a partner will go to make his partner more comfortable in a time of stress and illness. Kaplans own mother suffered from earlyonset Alzheimers. Every day that goes by that my brain works well and I remember not only my name, but the names of my associates ... is a good day.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You unearthed some surprising facts. Now you need to consider how to use them to your advantage. Meanwhile, it might be best to keep what youve learned secret for now. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A comment by a colleague piques your curiosity to know more. Best advice: Youll find people more likely to offer informa tion if youre discreet when making your inquiries. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your energy levels begin to rise by midweek. This allows you to catch up with your heavy workload and still have plenty of get-up-and-go to go out on the town this weekend. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Youre probably roaring your head off about a perceived slight from a longtime critic. Ignore it. That person might just be trying to goad you into doing something you might later regret. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) The early part of the week is open to spontaneity. Then its time to settle into your usual routine to get all your tasks done. A personal situation could require more attention from you. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A meeting of the minds on a workplace project might well develop into some thing more personal for Librans looking for romance. Aspects are also favorable for platonic relationships. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A more-positive mood might be difficult to assume in light of a recent prob lem involving the health of someone spe cial. But by weeks end, your emotional barometer should start to rise. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Look for a changed attitude from a former adversary once he or she realizes you have your colleagues full support. Now you can refocus your energies on that workplace project. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) This time, a difference of opinion might not be resolved in your favor. But be patient. It ultimately could all work out to your advantage, as new information begins to develop. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A tug of war develops between the artistic Aquarians creative aspect and his or her practical side. Best advice: Prioritize your schedule so you can give appropriate time to both. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You could be entering a career phase awash with job-related demands. But avoid being swamped by the overflow and, instead, keep treading water as you deal with demands one by one. BORN THIS WEEK: You are an exceptionally loyal person, and youre respected for your ability to keep the secrets entrusted to you. England learns of a plot to explode the Parliament building.

rfn BUSINESS REAL ESTATE CLASSIFIEDS VOL. 21, NO. 19 SANIBEL & CAPTIVA ISLANDS, FLORIDA NOVEMBER 1, 2013 BSECTIONF GCU S tudents Clean U p D ebris Beneath S anibel F ishing Pierby Jeff L ysiakLast Friday morning, nine FGCU students and volunteers specializing in scuba diving working in cooperation with the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation removed marine debris, monofilament line and miscellaneous waste from underneath the Sanibel Fishing Pier. Most people dont think about what happens below the water, said Nathan Engler, the leader of the group who also served as dive master during the October 25 cleanup. The dive shop that I work for also does pier cleanups, but there has never been an effort like this. The FGCU students, as part of the requirements for their Civic Engagement class, came up with the idea of collecting debris found beneath the Sanibel Fishing Pier, which was closed by the city from 7 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. to provide the volunteer effort better access beneath the structure. This is pretty big for the FGCU student body, because this is the first time weve ever done underwater stuff, said Levi Dietzel, a student from Orlando. Our professor was very excited when he heard about our idea. Hopefully, this becomes an annual event. Engler, who lives in Naples, arrived on the island shortly after 8 a.m. to begin assessing the area surrounding and below the pier. He was met by SCCFs Landscaping for Wildlife Administrator Dee Serage-Century, who noted that the foundation sponsored the cleanup as part of Keep Lee County Beautifuls Monofilament Madness endeavor. I think this is a great partnership, said Serage-Century. Its very meaningful when adults get to work with the younger generation. Seeing their enthusiasm and knowing that they really want to get out there and help the environment, its nice to be able to assist them with their goals. Following a pre-event briefing with his fellow students and scuba divers, Engler led the group onto the beach next to the pier, where four volunteers put on wetsuits, oxygen tanks, dive masks, swim fins and gloves before entering the water. Two students Jayne Denslow and Angelina Reed comprised the above-water team, and were positioned on the pier. There, they were in charge of lowering a bucket down to the scuba divers, hoisting and dumping the collected debris into individual waste bins (divided into different categories of trash collected), and keeping an inventory of each item recovered from the water.continued on page 2B Participants in the October 25 cleanup of the Sanibel Fishing Pier were, from left, Sonja Engler, Jacob Schoonover, Ashley Eylar, Nathan Engler, Jayne Denslow, Angelina Reed, Suzi Bondy, Taber Engler and Levi Dietzel photos by Jeff Lysiak Ashley Eylar, Suzi Bondy and Jayne Denslow worked for 10 minutes to cut free a stone crab trapped inside a fishing net found beneath the pier.

2B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 1, 2013 From page 1BFGCU CleanupBefore the cleanup began, several students spoke with excitement over what items might be found below the pier, in addition to the expected haul of fishing line and lures. The group had also decided that any treasures discovered (i.e. rings, watches or jewelry) would be donated to SCCF. I heard theres a 250-pound goliath grouper that lives underneath there, said Engler. There might be some other cool stuff under there, too well just have to see. By the time the students completed the cleanup, they came away with a fairly successful assortment of marine debris including three cast nets, six fishing lures, many fishing hooks, several dozen pounds in lead weights and hundreds of feet of tangled monofilament line as well as a few unusual items, including batteries, a cane (covered in barnacles) and an iPhone. During the recovery of one fishing net attached to a six-foot pole, SerageCentury noticed that a live stone crab was trapped within the tangled mass of monofilament line and net material. Three students worked tirelessly for 10 minutes, using a pair of knives to free the stone crab from the net, setting it free back into San Carlos Bay. Hopefully, this will get people in the water and working on the issue as a community, added Engler.

In May, Sanibel Community Church Pastor Daryl Donovan was spotted with a We Love Our Islands decal on his vehicle by a member of the banking staff. That won him the right to select which local non-profit cause would receive a charitable contribution of $400 from Bank of the Islands. The Pastor chose to direct the banks gift to the Sanibel-Captiva Kiwanis Club. Then in October, the We Love Our Islands winners were Drs. Jaclyn and Gregory Walsh from Sanibel Chiropractic. They too chose to direct their winnings of $250 to the Kiwanis service organization. These two gifts mark a total of $52,450 Bank of the Islands has contributed to island organizations to date through the We Love Our Islands program. Kiwanis does great things for our islands, said Bank of the Islands Sanibel Office Manager Rob Lisenbee.

Jay Scanlon with hole-in-one prizes for the 10th annual Shell Point Open Golf Tournament on November 8 Records Abound With Big Papis 2013 World Series One Of The Greatest In The History Of The Fall Classic?by Ed FrankThe never-before wild finishes of Games Three and Four of this years World Series undoubtedly will become major chapters of in the history of the Fall Classic. But as we write this column prior to the start of Game Five, the unbelievable performance of Bostons David Ortiz overshadows everything else. Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson is known as Mr. October, but Big Papis World Series hitting is beyond anything seen in decades. After four games, he was hitting .727. Thats right .727 and had been on base 12 times in 15 appearances, including seven straight. He had three hits and a walk in Game Four. In those four games, he had two home runs, five RBIs and four walks. And he started Game Five with two additional consecutive hits, a single and a double, stretching his consecutive on-base streak to a series record nine and raising his average to .769. He added a third hit in the eighth inning. Ortiz has reached base safely in all 13 of his World Series games dating back to 2004. There have been only four players in World Series history to hit .600 or bet ter. They are Billy Hatcher of the 1990 Cincinnati Reds (.750) and three New York Yankees: Babe Ruth in 1928 (.625), Hideki Matsui in 2009 (.615) and Ricky Ledee in 1998 (.600). Ortiz, however, is much more to the Red Sox than just his slugging. For nearly a decade, he has been the heart and soul of this team. For example, with his team trailing the St. Louis Cardinals two games to one, he gathered his teammates in the dugout in the middle of Game Four for a pep talk. Catcher David Ross recalled Big Papis words: Guys, lets be ourselves. This opportunity (the World Series) doesnt come along very often. Lets have some fun and grind this thing out. A few minutes later, outfielder Jonny Gomes blasted a three-run homer to give the Red Sox a 4-2 lead that they never relinquished to even the series, 2-2.continued on page 14B Boys Finish 10K Race 4 FISHChuck Bergstrom sponsored Tyler Zender and Brandon Strickland to participate in the 5th annual 10K Race 4 FISH on October 19.

The four-person team scramble tournament will tee-off at 1 p.m. The $125 per player entry fee includes greens fees and golf cart, beer and beverages on the golf course, door prizes as well as gift certificates for the top three and last place participants. In addition, the entry fee includes a cocktail reception and prime rib dinner at The Jacaranda following the tournament, featuring dancing and live entertainment with a reggae band. According to Patrick Harder, managing partner at The Jacaranda, his father-in-law, Paul Gaeta, started the golf tournament back in 1988 as a means of friends, family and restaurant customers having a little fun together before the Christmas holiday. Several years ago, the event became a fundraiser, with a new beneficiary being selected each year. Weve held the tournament at The Dunes almost every year weve done it, said Harder, who plans on participating in this years event along with several members of his family, who will be visiting from New York and Connecticut.

After leading or tying for first place for the first two weeks of League play, the Sandycappers slid into third place in style after absorbing a 9-7 pounding by Island Lifers. Jack Cunningham won four straight for the victors while Jack Dalton posted his second straight 4-0 night with his win over Island Lifer Captain Connie Lee.

Are you sure your current portfolio withdrawls will last as long as you do? Why not get a 2nd opinion from us to nd out? With the significant increase to the federal estate tax exemption, many individuals feel that estate planning isnt as important as it used to be. Regular readers of this column know that isnt true for many non-tax reasons. Here, however, Im going to review a very significant federal income tax surcharge that affects estates and trusts beginning this year (2013). Most of you are aware that the Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare) imposes a 3.8 percent Medicare surtax on most forms of unearned income when taxpayers have net investment income or modified adjusted gross income above certain amounts. ($250,000 married filing jointly; $125,000 for married filing separately; $200,000 on all others). The surtax may also affect estates and irrevocable trusts that have Net Investment Income above a very low amount $11,950. So, if dad dies with a trust that benefits mom, and that trust earns interest, dividends and capital gains totaling $80,000 that are accumulated inside of the trust and are not distributed to mom, then dads trust could owe a Medicare surtax of $2,586.00 in addition to all of the income and capital gains taxes that it normally would pay. Moreover, the interest and dividends would be taxed at the highest ordinary income tax bracket (now 39.6 percent) and the capital gains tax rate in this example would also be at the highest federal marginal rate (now 20 percent). The Medicare surtax may be minimized or even legally eliminated with proper planning both inside of your estate plan and in how your plan is administered following your death. Moreover, the income tax rates on the interest and dividends as well as the capital gains tax rates could be reduced with proper planning. The first item to consider is that the $11,950 threshold on Net Investment Income applies to estates and irrevocable trusts. It does not apply to revocable living trusts. If you established a revocable living trust, then the income earned by the trust is taxed to you as if the trust doesnt exist. There is no difference between having a revocable trust and not having one from an income tax perspective during your lifetime. It is tax neutral. If a revocable living trust will benefit you and your family, then the Medicare sur tax should not affect your decision as to whether you should establish a new trust or retain an existing trust. When you die, however, your estate is either created through your will, and/ or may become a testamentary trust (which means a trust that forms after your death) for the benefit of your spouse or children. Estates under wills and testamentary trusts are by definition irrevocable. You may have also established a lifetime irrevocable trust. All are negatively affected by the low Medicare surtax threshold. There are planning options available, however. When estates and irrevocable trusts distribute all of the Net Investment Income to the beneficiaries, then the surtax would apply to the beneficiaries tax schedules and not to the estate and trust schedules. By applying the individual thresholds mentioned in the second paragraph above there might not even be a Medicare surtax due, and the income and capital gains tax rates may also be drastically reduced. But it is not always feasible to have the estate or trust distribute all of the income and capital gains to the beneficiaries. A spousal trust may have been created to protect the surviving spouses inheritance, minimize estate taxes when he or she dies, or to preserve the trust for the children in second marriage situations. An irrevocable trust for the children may have been created to protect the childrens inheritance from divorcing spouses, creditors or predators. Assuming that these non-tax reasons exist for the creation of the irrevocable trust to begin with, then one cant just assume that the best course of action would be to make interest, dividend and capital gains distributions out of the trust to avoid the Medicare surtax. There one would be letting the tax tail wag the proverbial dog. There are alternatives available. The trust could be drafted in such a way as to give the trustee (who may also be the beneficiary) discretion to recharacterize capital gains and income and make distributions to minimize the potential tax bite. The trust could also be drafted to classify the beneficiarys interests as grantor interests under the Internal Revenue Code. What this means is that the collapsed $11,950 trust rate schedule would not apply to the trust shares benefitting the spouse or children. Instead, the more favorable individual tax rate schedules would apply. Needless to say, the ObamaCare sur tax along with the higher income tax rates imposed beginning this year will require clients and their advisors to review their estate planning. There isnt a blanket answer to everyones plan that fixes the problem. Each individuals plan and goals need to be considered to arrive at the right solution for his or her unique situation. Craig R.

A great family residence or vacation home at a great price...... $498,500 Superior InteriorsD ecorative Fabricsby Cindy M alszyckiNothing in your home will generate warmth and appeal more than the decorative fabrics used. A review of available fabrics will assist the homeowner in the sometimes-confusing selection process. Is any fabric as rich as silk? Imported from the Orient for centuries, the very word silk generates opulence in ones imagination. How can a room not feel elegant with the incomparable sheen, texture and depth of color that silk offers? While there may be no more beautiful designer fabric, there are certain cautions to be taken when using silk, primar ily its sensitivity to direct sunlight. Your decorator will specify not only a quality lining but also an interlining for protection from the strong Florida sun. When used for upholstery, silk should always be enhanced with a knit backing. Cotton Is Still King Originating in Egypt, cotton is one of the most versatile and appealing of all fibers, natural or manmade. In the home, cotton is a decorative fabric mainstay. It dyes beautifully, and when finely spun, combed and tightly woven, it is both beautiful and sturdy, lasting for years. If opulence is your goal, but budget and durability are important, choose a high quality cotton fabric in a rich hue or fabulous print. Pre-historic Linen Long before anyone thought to unwind a silkworm cocoon or plant a row of cotton, linen was being woven into fabric. While dimensionally stable and easily bleached, linen generally does not take dyes well, thus limiting the range and depth of colors available. Since linen is readily recognizable and tends to be expensive, it immediately lends prestige to any room it adorns. However, linen is prone to wrinkling and does not iron easily, so those who enjoy perfection should make another selection. Manmade Fabrics The 1950s brought manmade fabrics, but they lacked many of the features that were so desirable in the natural fabrics. But chemists persevered until today we have many beautiful choices in the manmades. Still, there are a few drawbacks. No synthetic fabric will have the depth of color in a silk nor the ability to be woven into the complex patterns available in cottons. Yet, these fibers and what they offer in appearance and price extend to a greater population the pleasure of having their home make a strong statement about quality and opulence.

Insurance Tip Cybersecurity 101by A ngela L arson R oehlCybersecurity is the protection of computer systems against unauthor ized attacks or intrusion. This includes not only computers, but devices such as smart phones and tablets. Greater online security is demanded due to the ever-changing technology. At home, work and at school, you are the first line of defense in guarding against online risk. This is a responsibility that is shared, and requires awareness and vigilance from every citizen, community and country. Cyber risk involves either malicious individuals that intend to cause harm in cyberspace, such as hackers who steal information, personal or otherwise, or benign individuals who are people who accidentally cause harm to a network, system or the Internet, and this would be like someone surfing the net and accidentally downloads malware onto their personal or companys computer system. When a cyber risk will occur is very difficult, if not impossible, to know. Where does it happen? Cyber risk occurs in cyberspace, or better known as the Internet. It is accessed through computer networks that share information and act as a portal for information. Cyberspace has no boundaries.

Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My son is in second grade and he is having trouble understanding what the main idea is in the stories they are reading. How can I work with him at home to help him with this concept? Jennifer K., Fort Myers Jennifer, Identifying the main idea and supporting details is an important part of reading comprehension. The main idea of a piece of writing is the central point the author tries to make; this can be an opinion, argument or a general idea and sometimes a very difficult concept for kids to grasp. Sometimes its the vocabulary associated with main idea that is problematic. Here is an exercise using very simple language for you and your son to use. Choose some books to read together maybe one per day for the next week. Make sure that your son takes part in the selection process of these books so he that he has some interest in them. Before you read the story aloud, tell your son that you and he will both will be discussing the main idea of the story after you read it. Explain that the main idea of a story is what the story is mostly about not just a fact or two from the story. Most kids understand what mostly about means. After reading the story, have him answer the question what was the story mostly about. If he answers by stating a less important fact or concept, ask him again to answer what the story was mostly about. You could ask him, Is that what the whole story was mostly about, or is it just a fact we learned from the story? Discuss why the answer is either what the story is mostly about or only a fact. Practicing this daily for about a week will allow him to practice this skill to a mastery level. After he understands this concept of mostly about or the main idea, let him know that most of the time but not always the main idea is stated in a topic sentence. This sentence is usually near the beginning and sets up what the rest of the writing will be about. Then, tell him about the supporting ideas and details that he will see. Supporting details are sentences that support the main idea. These sentences have information that helps explain and prove the authors point. Heres a good website to use for practicing this concept: www.manatee.k12. fl.us/sites/elementary/samoset/mainideaprac.htm. 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.

County Launches Flood Insurance Info WebsiteLee County is working diligently to gain federal legislators support in delaying implementation of a federal flood insurance rate increase so that an affordability study can be done. In the meantime, homeowners and business owners in unincorporated Lee County can learn about the impact of the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 via a new section on the Lee County Department of Community Developments website. Visit www.lee-county.com/dcd and click on Biggert-Waters Act under Whats New. You will learn what the legislation is, who will be affected by it and a timeline for implementation. You can also find out what policyholders can do, and how Lee County is helping to address the rate increases. The Biggert-Waters information is part of the Community Development websites Flood Mapping section, which also provides homeowners in unincorporated Lee County an easy way to look up their flood zones, get copies of their FEMA Elevation Certificates and much more. Based upon the recent success we experienced with our designated leaders in Washington, DC, I am convinced that all the effort we can do here locally can become a catalyst to fix this problem. Everyone is working hard on it and we have the right people looking at the situation, said Lee County Commissioner Larry Kiker, whom fellow board members designated to take the lead on the flood insurance issue and who is working to schedule a roundtable on the issue for citizens and stakeholders later this fall.

22B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 1, 2013 M om A nd Me by L izzie and PryceLizzie and Pryce answer your questions and give advice about aging concerns from a two-generational perspective. A mother and daughter team, Lizzie is a retired RN and health educator, and Pryce is a licensed psychotherapist in private practice who specializes in the care of elders and people with chronic illnesses. Dear Mom & Me, We were thrilled when our daughterin-law told us she was pregnant with her second child. The medical procedure she had to help her become pregnant worked. However, three months later we were told the heart-breaking news that all the tests showed their child would be severely handicapped. The doctors told her an abortion would be available to her if she decided to go that route. It is against our religious beliefs to even consider an abortion, so now it is being left to God to give us the strength we need. My daughter-in-law, our son, her parents and my husband and I are all going through a terrible, worrisome time. Do you have any suggestions to help us cope? Sylvia Dear Sylvia, I am sorry to hear about your family situation. Just as our ethics, morals and beliefs guide our behavior and actions, the same ethics, morals and beliefs provide comfort and support during difficult times. I cannot even begin to understand the journey ahead for your family. My thoughts are with you all. Pryce Dear Sylvia, I am so sorry about this developing problem. It is only in recent years that families know in advance about the condition of a developing child. Handicapped children are accepted in many families with open arms and love; in others, it is extremely difficult. It is difficult for mothers, fathers, siblings and grandparents. Many marriages cannot survive and the financial costs can be enormous. It is time for you to come to terms with your own feelings and ask yourselves if you can accept the burden and the responsibility. Professional counseling by a licensed mental health professional may help you consider all of the available options. Lizzie Lizzie and Pryces email address is momandmeaging@hotmail.com.

Physically, expect to see bronchitis; chest congestion; colds; congestive heart failure; coughs; flu; insomnia; pleurisy; respiratory issues; shortness of breath; skin problems; or tuberculosis. As a reminder, view the August 9 and 16 columns, since the basics of tracing are set forth. Meridian Flow Wheel Time of Day LU meridians high tide is 3 and 5 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 3:30 a.m. (you definitely have an energy imbalance), then begin with LU. 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 LU if you have some of the symptoms listed in the opening paragraph. By boosting lung energy, you begin balancing the body. Affirmation for this Meridian is, I breathe in fresh chi and inspiration I breathe out stale chi and grief. 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 Place one hand on the opposite front shoulder area, above the nipple and directly across from the top of your armpit. Move it up over the front of your shoulder, straight down the edge of your arm where the light part of your skin meets the darker section and off the thumb. Do the other side. Thats it. You just traced lung 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 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 all set. Keep this column as a reminder of how to trace lung while you learn the next three meridians this month. Have fun with your energy!

B ikers Go B ehind B ars For Good To S upport M DAFort Myers Harley-Davidsons biggest supporters from throughout the Southwest Florida area will be arrested and put behind bars for the Muscular Dystrophy Associations LockUp fundraiser on Thursday, November 7 at Fort Myers Harley-Davidson and Naples Harley-Davidson. Accused of having big hearts and being heavily armed with kindness, the jailbirds volunteer to be part of MDAs Lock-Up in order to raise bail by encouraging friends, family, co-workers and business contacts to make contributions to MDA that will directly benefit families in the greater Southwest Florida area living with progressive muscle diseases. The actual day of the Lock-Up will be a fun celebration of the work each person did to help families who live right here in our community, explained Kim Viquesney, Executive Director of the Southwest Florida MDA office. Lock-Ups are one of MDAs signature fundraising programs, benefiting local individuals living with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related progressive muscle diseases in the Southwest Florida area. The event also will help send Southwest Florida-area youngsters to a special week at MDA summer camp at Rotary Camp in Brandon, Florida.

The next screening on the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile will be held on Friday, November 1 from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at McDonalds, located at 12990 S. Cleveland Avenue in Fort Myers. It is estimated that one in every 88 children is diagnosed with some form of Autism Spectrum Disorder, making it more common than childhood cancer, juvenile diabetes and pediatric AIDS combined. Medical consultants for the project stress that an early diagnosis can make a vast difference for toddlers and their families. They say early intensive behavioral intervention can make an immense difference not just in the development of the child, but in their families as well. The ASD screening is conducted by the Neurosciences Center at Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida. The screenings are administered by an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner, who has extensive training and experience in typical child development and developmental disorders. A physician referral is not required. To schedule a screening, call 343-6838.

23B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 1, 2013 deaRPharmacistHerbal R elief For N erve Pain by S uzy Cohen, R PhDear Pharmacist: I have nerve pain that is chronic and related to my diabetes. I take medication for that, and want to add some supplements that might help. I promise to ask my doctor if theyre alright for me... if you pick my question and answer me in the paper. Love your work Suzy. PT, Tulsa, Oklahoma Perfect, because herbs are just plantbased drugs and have many interactions and cautions. There are inexpensive vitamins that can help you, too. Ill cover that today. Nerve pain is termed neuropathy and sometimes you see it as peripheral neuropathy. It can be best described as tingling, burning, radiating and sharp; some people say they feel like ants are biting. Everyones experience is differ ent, and the sensation may feel differ ent depending on the cause. Diabetes medications can sometimes exacerbate neuropathy by causing a drug nutrient depletion. Some of the most popular medications prescribed (i.e. metformin, glipizide) are what I call drug muggers of vitamin B12. You need B12 to produce myelin, a protective fatty coating around your nerve fibers. Your nerves get touchy and neuropathy can begin if you run out of myelin. Supplementing with methylcobalamin might help, but do a test to see if you are low in that. Its a blood test. You never want to supplement with something you already have enough of. There is more about diabetes and nerve-soothing remedies in my Diabetes Without Drugs book. Herbs that are in the nervine category can be very nourishing and soothing to the nerve tissue. Among the best are Chinese skullcap, lemon balm, wood betony, St. Johns wort, chamomile, prickly ash and milky oats. These are found in a variety of ways including commercial tea, dried herb so you can make your own tea or compress, tinctures, capsules and so forth. They each have a book full of side effects and precautions. St. Johns Wort interacts with many, many drugs. I love herbs, and have a special relationship with them. I study them all day long because Im fascinated that Mother Nature has its very own medicine cabinet! So I can assure you that these plant drugs have side effects and interactions. Do not take it upon yourself to just self-treat without seeing a knowledgable practitioner who studies and prescribes herbs for a living. For milder effects, you could always take a bath in herbs; mix together all of the following to make two cupfuls: Oatstraw, skullcap, wood betony and St. Johns wort. Put it in a clean sock and drop into your bath. You can also put 5 to 10 drops of lavender essential oil in there. Soak for at least 20 minutes, keeping the water lukewarm, not too hot on those sensitive areas. This must be discussed with your practitioner, since there is transdermal absorption of these herbs. If you have a local (small) area, you can also try a commercial product called Neuragen sold at pharmacies nationwide. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: I know that I need to have more compassion for a family member who has an addiction, but I am struggling with this because he wont stay with getting the help he needs. Do you have any advice?A: If you feel close enough to this person in your family to discuss your concerns, please let him know that you care and want to support his healing, however, he must be totally willing to help himself and that means professional help. You did not say what the addiction is, but there are support groups and professionals who are there for him. I would even help him locate a professional who specializes in addiction, and if he resists that, perhaps he would be willing to start with a support group or the clergy. Let him know that you will assist in any way you can, however, sometimes a tough love approach is more effective. Is he dependent on you? Are you already enabling him? These are questions you may want to ask yourself and be clear with yourself and him regarding setting healthy boundaries. If you have other family members who are willing to assist, it may take an intervention to get him the help he needs. You can still have compassion when handling this issue and be firm in setting healthy limits. It will be better for you both in the long run. Flu S hots At S t. Isabel ChurchThe Visiting Nurses Association in partnership with Hope HealthCare Services will be administering flu shots on Sanibel on Tuesday, November 5. The shots will be available at St. Isabel Catholic Church, Sanibel-Captiva Road from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Vaccinations are available to those 18 years and older.

They include Do Not Enter, No Exit, One Way and Stop at least two of everything and that doesnt include the multiple parking lot markers. Considering the business has two driveways on Periwinkle Way, the result has been a doubling up for the benefit of motorists entering and leaving. Most island restaurants have small Enter and Exit signs at eye level, sometimes attached to the business sign or on a low post. Valiquette did say, though, that the par ticular location, so close to the causeway, caused traffic safety concerns for the public works department. We had to shift the east driveway to get away from the four-way stop, so its site specific, he said, adding, I dont specifically remember (approving) double signs. He said hes an opponent of sign proliferation and one time took a photograph from one of the causeway islands approaching Sanibel that showed 16 signs. And here we are, an island that wants to reduce signs, Valiquette added, citing a pattern of three signs on the sides of every crosswalk. He acknowledged though that safety is a major priority for city officials so he tries to ignore it when he sees clusters of signs, like those at the restaurant still under renovation at 1020 Periwinkle Way.
