Even though we all hail from different parts of the world, we have one connection that binds us: a love for our oceans. During the holidays, we had the opportunity to come together and delve into the concept of home ranges and discover, or rediscover, many of our favorite sea creatures. Biologists define home range as the total geographic area used by an individual during its lifetime. Some animals have small home ranges, and some have enormous home ranges. But all animals have some defined geographic space where continued on page 18 Lily Robinson, 9 Oliver Garramone, 11

3 ISLAND SUN JANUARY 17, 2014 Ding Lecture Features Old Sanibel PostcardsTake a trip to island bygones with two longtime islanders during lectures by Deborah Gleason and Charles LeBuff, authors of Sanibel and Captiva Islands, part of Arcadia Publishings Postcard History Series. The two lectures begin at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Friday, January 24, in the Ding Darling Visitor & Education Center on Sanibel. Gleason and LeBuff both arrived on Sanibel Island in 1958. LeBuff came to work at Sanibel National Wildlife Refuge and lived in one of the lighthouse quarters for 22 years. He became a charter member of the Sanibel City Council and played a part in keeping Sanibel the way it was. Gleason grew up on the beach helping with family rental cottages and later helping visitors become islanders in the world of real estate. She now chairs the Sanibel Historical Preservation Committee. The authors pooled historic postcards from their lives on the islands to add to other collections for this photographic journey into the past. They will be showing slides of some of their favorite postcards. Charles and I were chatting at MacIntosh (Books & Paper) one day, and we realized we both had collections of vintage post cards, Gleason remembers how the book came about. I guess we both like remembering the island BC before causeway and most of our cards show how simple and quaint it was for decades. We easily collaborated on the writing and had several friends who wanted to show their cards too. Admission is free to the lecture, which is sponsored by The Sanibel Captiva Trust Company and Ding Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge (DDWS), as part of its 12-week Friday Afternoon Lecture Series. Seating is limited and available on a first-come basis. Following the lectures, the authors will sign copies of their book, which are available for purchase in the Refuge Nature Store, proceeds from which benefit refuge conservation and education programs. As usual, Wildlife Drive is closed on Friday, but visitors are welcome to the free Visitor & Education Center and the recreational opportunities at Tarpon Bay Explorers, the refuges official concessionaire located at its Tarpon Bay Recreation Area.

ISLAND SUN JANUARY 17, 20144 Sam Baileys Grandson Visits Historical VillageSam Baileys grandson Bear Bailey and his fiance Abi Stine visited the Sanibel Historical Village recently when the entire Bailey family gathered on Sanibel for the holidays. Bailey lives in Hawaii and visits Sanibel every few years. The last time he visited the historical village was with his grandfather Sam. He told me stories and showed me all the old stuff, Bailey said. He was fun to be around. He taught me how to throw a cast net and, up until the last time I saw him, I couldnt beat him at tennis. Im very pleased to call him my grandfather, he said. Sam Bailey spent many years in Tampa and had a storied career in sports, but Bear said he could see the island boy coming out. If he had to pick (between Tampa and Sanibel), I would say he was more a Sanibel guy. We were thrilled to host Sams grandson, said Emilie Alfino, museum manager. Sam was such an important part of our village, and he loved it so much, that its wonderful to see that sentiment is still alive two generations later. Bailey and Stine spent a lot of time in the Old Bailey Store, poring over the bits and pieces of the lives of his grandfather Sam, great-uncle Francis Bailey, and great-grandfather Frank Bailey. Of Francis, Bailey said, He was the funny one, always making me laugh. Sam Bailey recounts in his book, A Sanibel Son, that upon his return to Sanibel from Tampa in 1979, he started to think about all the things that could be done for the island, particularly in the area of historic preservation. So much of our history was being lost so quickly that I was worried that nobody would know what this place once looked like, he wrote. In 1984 he was elected to the citys Historic Preservation Committee, the Rutland House was moved to Dunlop Road, and the Sanibel Historical Village was on its way. Of course there was some personal nostalgia in it for me too, Sam Bailey wrote. I wanted the young whippersnappers on the island to know what this place was like long before they were born. Because of his efforts, one young whippersnapper is able to visit the historical village and get a sense of what life was like for his grandfather. We miss him a lot, Bear Bailey concluded, but we still have grandma! Bear is the son of Sams daughter Toy, who lives in Hawaii. Sams other daughters, Tye and Tee, live in Tampa. The museum and village is located at 950 Dunlop Road. Admission is $10 for adults 18 and older and free for those under 18 and members. 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. Admission to the gift shop only is free.

Roy Gibson, presenting planning departments staff report, shared details of the application from Billy Kirkland, owner of Billys Rentals, and Richard Johnson, owner of the property. The permit requested a bicycle and beach equipment rental business to be established inside a 2,856-square-foot commercial unit, at 2437 Periwinkle Way. According to Gibson, the applicant proposed two site plan changes, requesting the removal of three parking spaces adjacent to the business in order to accommodate bicycle parking, and to allow a connection with the citys shared use path system. A parking demand analysis of the site indicates that by removing three parking spaces, there remains a surplus of spaces required for the parking lot. Planners recommended that the applicant be required to maintain a minimum of 279 off-street parking spaces for commercial uses onsite.In addition, the staff report recommended all commercial activities associated with the business be conducted indoors; no increase in commercial floor area nor any outdoor commercial activity is permitted; install additional landscaping in conformance with the landscaping plan, with plantings that meet or exceed the 75 percent native requirement; and provide an amended master development plan reflecting those changes. Commissioner Chuck Ketteman expressed his safety concerns at the site, noting that the anticipated additional traffic at that end of the shopping center has never been seen before. However, he also said that the business will be a wonderful benefit to the community, adding that providing a bicycle rental business on the same side of the street as the citys shared use paths will keep more people off the heavily-trafficked Periwinkle Way. Ketteman did note some concern for sight lines with respect to the vegetation buffer proposed for the site, adding that the ingress/egress of Baileys Shopping Center was a dangerous spot. Fellow commissioner Dr. Phillip Marks also suggested that people renting bicycles or other items from the business who would be parking their vehicles on-site for extended hours be required to park in spaces designated for long-term parking. Kirkland agreed, saying that he wanted to be a good neighbor to the other businesses. Johnson added that parking spaces located along the curb, closest to the businesses, would be designated short-term parking, although specific details on how those spaces would be marked have not been finalized. Following some additional discussion, commissioners approved the permit 7 to 0. In other business, a resolution for a conditional use permit to remove and replace an existing boat dock and add two lifts was granted to David and Mika Finkins, property owners at 1878 Woodring Road. COTI Column Criticized By Commissionersby Jeff LysiakDuring his city council liaison report to the planning commission on Tuesday, Vice Mayor Doug Congress took issue with a column written by Barbara Joy Cooley, president of the Committee Of The Islands (COTI), which appeared in the Island Suns January 10 edition. In the commentary article, entitled The Year Of Creeping Change, Cooley criticized the commission for inappropriately granting variances, which she said the result over time is a weakening of the Sanibel Plan and Land Development Code. However, Congress wanted to bring to the commissioners attention blatant inaccuracies in the column, including an allegation that the seven-member board was divided in a majority of variance application decisions. In reality, what is happening now is that pretty much everyone that applies for a variance is granted that variance usually in a 5 to 2 vote of the planning commission, Cooley wrote in her commentary. Congress provided a matrix covering the past three years of commission actions on variance decisions. Of the 17 cases in which a variance request was granted, all but two were by unanimous decision. In one case, the vote was 5 to 2; in the other, the vote was 5 to 1. I just wanted to set the record straight, Congress said. Commission Chair Michael Valiquette said that he was surprised that a local newspaper would print an article with those inaccuracies, while commissioner Chuck Ketteman said, To imply that we have the same problem that were having nationally does a disservice to this community. We go out of our way to make sure were doing everything fairly, added Valiquette. Larry Schopp, a member of COTI, said the commission grants too many variances, pointing out that during the past three years, the commission has turned down only a single variance request. This commission hands out variances like jellybeans, said Schopp, who defended Cooleys commentary by adding, I dont think that its terribly important how the votes went. He also said, In other respects, I think this commission is doing a good job. Commissioner Chris Heidrick noted that when hes out in the community speaking to island residents, he has heard overwhelming support for this commission, a sentiment supported in comments made by local businessman and Chamber of Commerce representative Jeremy Kane, who backed the boards incremental improvements.

OBITUARY KAY DODGE GRAVESKay Dodge Graves, 79, passed away peacefully on December 3, 2013 at the Hope Hospice facility of Shell Point Retirement Village in Fort Myers. She was born in New Milford, Pennsylvania on March 24, 1934 to Frederick and Marion Gillespie Dodge. She attended school there, and graduated in 1952. In 1954, she moved to Marilla, New York, a suburb of Buffalo, where she met and married Kenneth W. Graves, her husband of 58 years. Kay worked at Cornell Aeronautical Lab as an executive secretary until 1979, when she left the area with her husband to work at the Ingersoll-Rand Co. in New Jersey and later at IFF. In 1987, they purchased a retirement home on Sanibel Island, which had been a favorite vacationing spot since 1964. Returning to New Milford in 1994, the couple built a summer home on Kays beloved Upper Lake property that she had inherited from her grandfather, Frank N. Gillespie. Kay was a wonderful wife and mother. She loved to cook and bake and was known for her delicious recipes. In her spare time, she enjoyed creating things, such as award-winning counted cross-stitch, crocheting, stained glass work and basket weaving. She took special pride in her craftsmanship. For many years, she and Ken belonged to local square dance clubs, and she played mahjong with a Florida group. In addition, she compiled considerable data on the genealogy of both families during the last 30 years of her life. She is survived by her husband, Kenneth W. Graves; a sister, Grace Compton; her three children, Mark Nelson Graves of Fabius, New York, Gail Artin of Ormond Beach, Florida, and Deborah Kromer of Nazareth, Pennsylvania; and three grandchildren, Kelly Kromer, Mitchell Artin and Lauren Kromer. Kay was a member of the Congregational Church of Sanibel, and a memorial service celebrating her life will be held there on Saturday, January 25, at 10:30 a.m. The church is located at 2050 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel.

The concert begins at 6 p.m. in the sanctuary. A small red toy piano, a gift from his mother and father, was the incentive the gifted three-year-old Adlan needed to embrace the instrument. With it, he was able to express an amazing range of emotions such as nostalgia, loneliness, joy and passion. His desire to succeed in the arts led him to Europe where he studied different musical genres such as classical, popular and religious music. Today, Cruz is a concert pianist, a philanthropist, he produces and promotes his concerts and he heads up Adlan Cruz Ministries. A love offering will be received for his ministries.

ISLAND SUN JANUARY 17, 201418 From page 1Sea School Holiday Campthey spend their lives there are no true wanderers. A combination of all the individual home ranges of a species is known as the species range. During our holiday camp, we explored these two concepts. We also explored the ecological concept of philopatry, or the tendency of an animal to stay in, or return to its birthplace. We learned about the astounding behavior of sea turtles and their ability to navigate the open ocean using an internal compass, returning to an area year after year. Our campers explored how sensory systems in marine animals are a vital tool in navigating unfamiliar places. We learned that hammerhead sharks utilize seven senses, including electroreception and a lateral line system to locate prey and read the surrounding environment. Campers even donned special masks to simulate binocular vision in hammerheads to gain a first-hand look at what this shark sees. We braved chilly gulf waters all week long and practiced navigating the open ocean on surfboards with daily surf lessons. Campers honed their navigational skills by using compasses to guide them through and make maps of the Bailey Tract. We also observed many ospreys along the way, which are highly philopatric. When we werent being master orienteers around the island we were busy seining, throwing cast-nets, and investigating sea grass beds. We discovered that seining for fish is similar to the cooperative behavior of Atlantic bottlenose dolphins, working together to herd fish into a smaller area for feeding. We created a large group art project to visualize our home range by marking our hometowns on a global map. Each hometown was illuminated and the map will be displayed at Sanibel Sea School to visualize our species range. We learned how vast our home ranges were, but that begs the question: what actually makes a place a home? We often think of three things when it comes to home: safety, comfort, and love. We started off the New Year fresh, offering our troubles from 2013 to the sea. Campers wrote down their struggles on a small slip of paper and we collectively burned them. We offered a pinch of the ashes of our burdens to the sea, allowing the tide to wash them away for us, wiping the slate clean for 2014. Even though we were all at the limit of our home ranges for this holiday season, we all found safety, comfort, and love here on Sanibel Island together.

19 ISLAND SUN JANUARY 17, 2014 CROW Case Of The Week: Brown Pelicansby Patricia MolloyBrown pelicans are spectacular fliers. While awkward and ungainly on land, the large seabirds are champions of the sky, capable of performing dramatic nosedives and low-altitude glides that are the envy of aerobatic daredevils. Their aerial prowess is the reason that a group of brown pelicans is sometimes referred to as a squadron. Although a single adult brown pelican may eat as much as four pounds of fish daily, commercial and sport fishermen do not view the birds as competition because most of their diet has little commercial value. Brown pelicans prefer pigfish, menhaden, silversides and mullet, along with the occasional prawn. Not only are they the only pelicans that plunge-dive to catch prey, they are also the smallest of the species. Adults have few natural predators, making fishing injuries one of the greatest threats to the seabirds. As the new year began, there were seven brown pelicans (Pelecanus occidentalis) in CROWs ICU, of which four required surgery to remove fish hooks and lines. After surgery, it can take six weeks or more for a pelican to recover from hook and line injuries. Proper Fishing Etiquette To Minimize Negative Impact On The EnvironmentIf you are fishing off the shore, always pick up any monofilament line and dispose of it properly. Monofilament line can cut deeply when if it becomes tangled around the legs, wings or neck of a pelican. As tempting as it may be to interact with the delightfully photogenic birds, resist the temptation. Pelicans that become accustomed to hand-outs from people lose their fear quickly and become beggars. The more they hang around people, the more likely they are to get hooked. Be respectful and responsible. Many of the wildlife patients at CROW are admitted after being injured or sickened by reckless human behavior. Keep your days catch in a properly sealed container and dispose of cleaned fish carcasses in authorized areas. And avoid casting near trees. If you do accidentally hook a pelican, do not cut the line. If you feel confident that you will not injure the bird or yourself, carefully remove the hook. If you cannot safely remove it, contact a First Responder at CROW immediately. 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.

ISLAND SUN JANUARY 17, 201420 Sanibel-Captiva Conservation FoundationTank TalksOn Tuesday, January 21 at 10 a.m. the SCCF Nature Center will give a program about the turtles, snakes, and other island critters the foundation works so hard to protect through research and habitat protection. Maybe the diamondback terrapins will be digging in their new nesting sandbox. Indie the female indigo snake is in Tampa with her new mate,but a young male is filling in for her. It is mating season in Indigo snake land. Cost of the program is $5 per adult and free for children and SCCF members. Following the program attendees may visit the butterfly house and then take a walk on the trails to climb the tower overlooking the Sanibel River.Coyote and Bear Tales On Wednesday January 22, SCCF will present a program about two newcomer species to the islands. A coyote and a Florida black bear were documented on the island for the first time in the winter of 2011. The program will teach about the behaviors of these two species and how to live with them. Coyotes have now moved into every county in Florida, where both human and bear populations are growing. The island black bear was relocated to a new territory and then needed to be relocated again. There is a family of coyotes that islanders will hear calling again this winter season when the snowbirds arrive and the song dogs sing in response to sirens. Program is free to children and SCCF members, $5 for adults and starts at 10 a.m. Call SCCF at 472-2329 for more information on these programs unless otherwise indicated. Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation is located at 3333 Sanibel-Captiva Road.Trail Walks In Sanibels Interior WetlandsSanibel Island is a unique barrier island in Florida because it still has an interior freshwater wetland ecosystem that has not been lost to development. SCCF offers a guided walk through the interior wetlands and mid-island ridges of the Center Tract with discussion of native habitats, natural and cultural history and preservation efforts. Trail walks begin on January 21 and run through April 11 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at 11 a.m. Meet at the Nature Center and proceed to the trails. $5 for nonmembers; free to members and children.

Matt MitchellThe series of cold fronts we have experienced over the last few weeks have cooled our water temperatures into the mid 60s. After a warmer than normal December, things out on the water are getting right where they should be for this time of year. We are finally in our normal winter-time fishing pattern and the fish are doing what they should be in the month of January. Cooler water has made all the difference when it comes to our sheepshead fishing. These pre-spawn fish have flooded into the passes and bay in huge numbers. After an outstanding bite on sheepshead last winter, things are not quite that good yet. But as another cold front is forecast for the next week, this bite will only get better as these fish come inshore to spawn. Sheepshead can be found throughout our whole area with docks around the passes and deeper mangrove shorelines being the prime locations to get on this winter staple. When just about every other species of fish shut down due to the passing of a cold front, sheepshead is the go-to species for most anglers. Deeper mangrove creeks and shorelines have also begun to load up with our blue-tailed redfish of winter. For the last few weeks, we have been waiting for this winter time bite to start. What these redfish lack in size they make up for in sheer numbers. Once located, it is not unusual to catch 20-plus redfish out of one spot. Catching larger redfish has been a little tougher, with sand potholes on the shallow grass flats being the best way to target these fish. As the water gets clearer as it cools, sight fishing for these mid-slot-sized fish will really get going. Many of the deeper canals and sheltered black-bottomed creeks have been loading up with snook as these fish look to stay warm right after cold fronts. Bouncing the bottom with either large, hand-picked shrimp rigged on a jig head or working soft plastic jigs are the most productive methods, although often they simply do not feed when you find them stacked up. This catch-and-release fishery can be very frustrating as you will see giant snook and not be able to get them to eat anything. A better option is to wait until temperatures begin to warm and target them as they move out of these winter warm water spots to feed. Often during warm sunny days you can find these snook laid out on shallow mangrove shorelines soaking up the warmth of the sun and feeding. Deep mangrove creeks and bays in the fourto six-foot range sheltered in the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge have been loaded up with trout. During periods of cold weather, trout move into these creeks from the outside flats by the hundreds. Live shrimp under a popping cork rig fished out in the open will catch trout after trout. Most have been right above the 15-inch minimum size. As temperatures warm back up, look for them on the outside grass flats at the mouths of these same creeks. Out on the flats, the clearer the water, generally the better the trout bite will be. Live shrimp is now the bait of choice for inshore anglers. During the next few months, the bait shrimp are large and plentiful and basically the food that all our fish have switched over to. For anglers, this sure makes things easy: simply pick up a hundred or more live shrimp and go fishing. For fisherman who choose to throw artificials, its time to make the switch to a shrimp pattern, too. 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 the name philodendron evokes images of the common vine in a pot, think again. This large-scale shrub native to the rainforests of South America makes a bold statement, whether as an ornamental or a container plant. When the foliage becomes heavy enough, the plant topples, and its trunk snakes along the ground, eventually reaching upward again to form a canopy. It is often pruned into tree shape, thus another common name, tree philodendron. With a rounded spread of 10 to 15 feet, a height of up to 12 feet, and a trunk of several feet, this fast-growing evergreen will fill landscape space. It works well in group plantings or as a background or solitary specimen. The coarse arrow-shaped leaves are up to three feet long and deeply divided, earning it another name, split-leaf philodendron. The wavy edges give the entire plant a ruffled look. The leaves can be as much as two feet wide and are sometimes a bit droopy. The trunk develops aerial rootlets among the leaf scars, which form where the thick leaf stems fall off. Selloum produces fragrant white flowers and fleshy green fruit periodically throughout the year. It does best in a mixture of sun and shade. Selloum contains toxins, so take care when handling it and avoid ingesting any part of it. Sources: Waterwise: South Florida Landscapes; Florida, My Eden by Frederic B.

ISLAND SUN JANUARY 17, 201426 Birds Eye ViewInstinct And Learned Behaviorby Mark Bird WestallI know that I write about this stuff all the time, but I just had an interesting experience on one of my canoe trips and, coincidentally, there was an article on the Internet this past week that put some science behind my theories. Im talking about is our highly emotional fear of things like crocodilians, snakes, spiders and sharks. I was out in what I call the inner bay of the refuge last week with four customers in my big canoe when I spotted quite a bit of splashing going on about a hundred yards away in only a few feet of shallow water. As soon as I spotted the activity, I excitedly announced to everyone that there were some dolphins over there, noting that they quite often make such a commotion as they chase their prey up into the shallows. But as I paddled closer, I could see that the dorsal fins didnt have the same shape as that of a dolphin and their tail fins were moving back and forth sideways in the water, not up and down like a dolphins tail would; we were seeing three good-sized sharks! I continued bringing the canoe closer to the feeding sharks and someone up front said, Oh, goody, theyre sharks and were in a canoe! I smiled. We got to within thirty feet of the three wolves of the sea and I could see they were about five to seven feet long, with broad heads and definitely bull sharks, a species of shark with a reputation of being a little more aggressive. About that time, as we were letting our inertia from paddling and the incoming tide glide us past the fish, one of them turned in our direction and swam straight towards us to within approximately ten feet of the canoe. As soon as it got a good look at us, however, it immediately did an about-face with a big splash and all three sharks began swimming back to the deeper waters of the creek. I heard a great sigh of relief coming from my customers and spent the next several minutes explaining some of the real facts about how dangerous sharks are to humans. I also explained my problem with the supposedly educational wildlife programs about sharks and how out of an hours show you get 55 minutes of fear-generating images and only five minutes of true education. But, as usual, my words seemed to be falling on deaf ears and most of my customers where glad those vicious man-eaters had gone away. Because of that episode, I was going to write about bull sharks this week, but then I realized that I had already written an article about sharks last April (including a story about another encounter I had had with another bull shark) and I then saw the item mentioned above on the Internet that discussed the reasoning behind our exorbitant fear of these fish with big teeth. Research originally conducted in 2001 by Dr. Arne Ohman, a psychologist of the Karolinska Institute and Hospital in Stockholm, Sweden, showed that mammals developed the perceptive ability to focus on things seen as threatening and to respond emotionally with a feeling of fear. But in a more recent study, it is suggested that what we are not hard-wired to be afraid of sharks and other scary things, but rather we are hard-wired to quickly be able to identify their shapes. A study conducted by Drs. Vanessa LoBue, David H. Rakison and Judy S. DeLoache published in Current Directions in Psychological Science in 2010 found that small children could quickly identify snakes and spiders, etc., but were not necessarily afraid of them. However, as the child became older, they were more likely to have learned to be afraid. Ahh, once again, it appears to be the age-old argument, Is it nature or nurture? Well, in reality, there is some good science behind the argument that it actually a combination of both nature and nurture. Dr. Susan Mineka in the early 1980s started conducting complex behavioral experiments to see if monkeys could learn to be afraid of flowers in the same way that they could learn to be afraid of snakes. What she found was that they couldnt learn to be afraid of, how does this all add up? Well, it appears that we are hard-wired to easily recognize the shape of something that has hurt our species through the eons, but we are not pre-wired to be afraid of that shape. What we are pre-wired for is to find it easy to receive information that the shape is dangerous and then believe that information in a second. Therefore, when these guys in the wildlife programs (like the Crocodile Hunter) are always almost getting killed by the wild animals in their programs, what they are really doing is unknowingly promoting future loss of habitat by showing young children how dangerous those animals can be. Just think how many young kids only had Hollywood to teach them how dangerous wildlife can be when they were growing up in the cities and suburbs up north, only to move to Sanibel as adults and find those scary creatures living in their backyards. Im not surprised why they want those vicious animals put on the Ding Darling reservation or sometimes destroyed. Next week, I will continue this discussion with a more in depth look at Minekas early research. I find her experiments very interesting and it was this work that helped me formulate my own understanding of how instinct plays a much more important role in a humans ability to truly make logical and rational decisions about wild animals than many humans want to believe.

Leal, PhD, The BaileyMatthews Shell Museum Curator and Director of EducationThe Florida worm snail (Vermicularia knorrii), is named for its similarity to worms. This snail starts making a regularly coiled shell until it is roughly 0.5 inch long (shells in the photo are about 2 inches). From then on, the shell becomes uncoiled, acquiring its typical, irregular shape. The irregular shells of worm snails help anchor them inside sponge colonies.

ISLAND SUN JANUARY 17, 201432 Wildlife Refuge Welcomes Biology InternsTwo new biology interns joined the team effort at J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge on January 6. Hanna Joergens and Libby Errickson plan to stay through June as part of the refuges intern program supported by the Ding Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge. Errickson hails from York, Pennsylvania, but most recently lived in Washington state, where she worked as a raptor counter for Hawkwatch International. Prior to that she worked on an urban bird breeding ecology study at Ohio State University and as a naturalist at New Jersey Audubons Hawkwatch platform in Cape May. She holds a bachelors degree in wildlife conservation and management from Delaware Valley College in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. Joergens graduated from Indiana University in Bloomington with a degree in outdoor recreation and resource management. She has gained field experience since then in positions at Big Cypress National Preserve in Florida, Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge in Alabama, and most recently the southern fisheries research division of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources. Her work has focused on species from catfish to sea turtles. The surveys well be completing this season cant start soon enough! said Joergens. Sanibel is a unique home to all kinds of wildlife and people that I am excited to get to know better over the next six months. So far I am loving island life, said Errickson. I used to come here on vacations as a kid, and it is so cool to be able to return here and completely immerse myself in this unique environment. Biology interns have the opportunity to select an area of concentration for a research project while at the refuge. Errickson has chosen butterflies and moths. The project will include a display for the free Ding Darling Visitor & Education Center and an interpretive sign for the Bailey Tract. Joergens says shes so fascinated about all facets of refuge flora and fauna, she hasnt yet been able to narrow down her research topic. The intern program not only fulfills the wildlife societys mission to educate a new generation of wildlife stewards, but fills a government budget void by providing valuable manpower to assist the refuges overworked staff, said DDWS Executive Director Birgie Miller Vertesch. As a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, DDWS works to support J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuges mission of conservation, wildlife and habitat protection, research, and public education through charitable donations and Refuge Nature Shop proceeds.

The by-invitation exhibit, called Floridas Flora & Fauna, showcases the Port Charlotte residents keen ability to capture wildlife in a natural but colorful setting.

Born and raised in the Cleveland, Ohio area, Rash earned a bachelor of arts degree from Notre Dame College in South Euclid, Ohio and a masters degree from Cleveland State University. She has worked in a variety of media, but prefers oils, acrylics and watercolors, depending upon the subject. Her repertoire of work includes portraits, animals including birds, dogs and cats and other wildlife, landscapes, seascapes and florals. From October 2011 through December 2012, Rashs landscapes of Slovenia were featured in the Slovenian National Art Tour Exhibit, and were displayed in Illinois, Ohio and Pennsylvania as well as in Washington, DC at the Slovenian Embassy.

ISLAND SUN JANUARY 17, 201436 Sondheim At The Straussby Di SaggauSomething magical happens during a Stephen Sondheim musical and such is the case with Into The Woods, now playing at the BIG ARTS Herb Strauss Theater. Sondheim wrote the vibrant score 25 years ago and the delightful, high-spirited performances of all the actors make this off-beat fairy-tale an inspired experience. This is one of the largest casts ever to perform at the Strauss. In the first act, Little Red Ridinghood (Jessica Humphrey), Cinderella (Anne Chamberlain), Rapunzel (Sami Doherty), Jack (Trey Compton) and his mother (Julie Arensman) pursue their family fates while encountering a voracious wolf (Bobby Conte) and magical beans. There is also the baker (John Ramsey) and his wife (Cloe Sabin), who are desperate to have a child, and a witch (Elizabeth Urbanczyk) who promises to grant their wish if they can find some random items she desires, including a white cow and a red cape. Serving as Narrator and a Mysterious Old Man is Miguel Citron. There are 15 characters who whisk the audience into the woods on their various quests. The second act takes a darker spin, going beyond fairytale endings. People grow up, they die, relationships end, life becomes more complex and challenging. A female giant seeks revenge. All of this takes place on a set that is one of the finest I have seen at the Strauss. Wait til the curtain parts and you see the woods. Great job Clifton Chadick. This is a lengthy, over two-and-a-halfhour production but it works because of its haunting music, masterful lyrics and outstanding cast. Directed by Kathy Deitch, Into The Woods is a combination of fairy tales unlike any others. Its a journey for all ages. The Tony award-winning musical runs through February 15 at the Strauss Theater, on Sanibel. For tickets call 3950900 or 472-6862.

Towards the end of his short but brilliant life, Mozart was broke, ignored by his formerly adoring public, and mourning the death of his daughter. It is said that Mozarts final symphony sums up an era, but more than that, it is an intimate glimpse into the life of this child-like genius. No. 41 in C Major, k nown as the Jupiter Symphony, holds the key that unlocks the miracle of Mozart.

ISLAND SUN JANUARY 17, 201440 Whats On Tap At The Sanibel LibraryA selection of more than 65 beer tappers is on display at the Sanibel Public Library. Included are tappers for popular brews like Budweiser and Busch, as well as many local favorites like Strohs, Beach Bum, Detroit Lager, Molson Canadian, Harpoon I.P.A., Fat Tire and many more. The items are part of a 250-plus collection owned by Rick Goodrich of Sanibel. Goodrich was introduced to Brewmania about five years ago by a friend, and has since amassed a collection of beer tapper handles because he says they are colorful, fun and he enjoys searching for unique tappers. Many of the tappers are ceramic, and some are plastic or wooden. Others collect beer-related glasses, trays, coasters and similar items. I like to search for tappers at garage sales and flea markets, said Goodrich. The tappers are on display through the end of January at the Sanibel Public Library, 770 Dunlop Road. The Sanibel Public Library offers display cases to showcase unique and interesting collections. Past displays include woodcarvings, Calusa replica masks, shell, Statue of Liberty memorabilia, rhinestone jewelry, vintage handbags and more.

ISLAND SUN JANUARY 17, 201444 Monday Night MovieMy Afternoons With Margueriteby Di SaggauThe BIG ARTS movie for Monday night, January 20 is My Afternoons With Margueritte, about an illiterate man who bonds with an older and well-read woman. Based on the book of the same name, it stars Gerard Depardieu as Germain, an overweight handyman in his 50s, who meets Margueritte (Gisele Casadesus), a little 85-pound, 95-year-old woman. Forty years and 220 pounds separate them. They meet on a park bench where they both know the number of pigeons that hang out there, and the course of their lives are changed. Germain is a gentle soul with a good heart. He lives in a small trailer and lovingly tends his garden, where his mother displays sporadic violence against leeks. She lives to make his life miserable. Margueritte is so slight and fragile, she reminds Germain of a glass figurine. She lives in a retirement home with her beloved books. Articulate, and highly intelligent, she reads to him and he slowly makes steps toward self-esteem. Their growing friendship centers on the magic of books and words. The film runs 82 minutes. The Monday Night Movie for January 27 is The Attack, a gripping film. More on that next week. 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. Tickets are available by calling 395-0900.

45 ISLAND SUN JANUARY 17, 2014 Symphony Presents Music Of The Rat PackThe Southwest Florida Symphony will present a musical walk through the era of martinis, tuxedos and the American Standard with The Music of the Rat Pack, featuring guest vocal group The Copa Boys and international jazz conductor Michael Berkowitz. Performances take place on Friday, January 17 and Saturday, January 18 at Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall at 8 p.m. The concert features laughs, camaraderie and beloved tunes such as Thats Life, That Old Black Magic and Luck Be A Lady. The Copa Boys is a three-part harmony vocal group comprised of jazz vocalists Jimmy Cargill, Tony Apicaella and Sonny Black. Together, they embody the humor and musical styling of the original Rat Pack: Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop. Michael Berkowitz brings his professional experience and personal charisma to concert stages in what reviewers call a model of high quality conducting technique. Johnny Green, the great composer-conductor, called Berkowitz a drummer conductor extraordinaire. He has performed as a drummer for Henry Mancini, Liza Minnelli, Michael Crawford, Billy Joel, Sting, Elton John and Bette Midler; conducted for Marvin Hamlisch, Roberta Flack, Maureen McGovern, Michael Feinstein, and Sarah Brightman; led numerous orchestras including the Boston Pops, The London Symphony, The Cincinnati Pops, The Pittsburgh Symphony, The North Carolina Symphony, The Atlanta Symphony, The National Symphony; and is featured on recordings with Steve Lawrence, Placido Domingo, Linda Eder and countless original cast albums, movies, jingles and television performances. The Southwest Florida Symphony enters its 53rd season this year, having made its debut as a community orchestra on April 15, 1961. It has since grown to become Lee Countys only professional symphony orchestra, filling Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall, its primary concert venue, with full time residents of our community, seasonal residents and tourists. The symphony roster now consists of more than 65 world-class musicians and plays host to many nationally and internationally renowned guest artists during each performance season. Tickets cost $20, $27, $38, $44, $62 and $82 and may be purchased at the Symphony Box Office, by calling 418-1500, online at or at the door. Subscriptions to the Southwest Florida Symphonys Pops Series may still be purchased as well at $49, $66, $92, $102, $108, $150 or $198. The Copa Boys Jazz conductor Michael Berkowitz Author To Speak At Library Fundraiserby Di SaggauThe Sanibel Public Library Foundation fundraising luncheon will be held at The Sanctuary Golf Club from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, February 18, and will feature author Chris Bohjalian. Those attending are in for a real treat. I know this because I just got off the phone with Bohjalian, interviewing him for this article, and he is an extremely interesting and delightful man who is looking forward to his trip to Sanibel. He will talk about his latest book, The Light in the Ruins, answer questions from the audience and autograph copies of his books. The book, set in post-World War II Tuscany, deals with a serial killer, and Nazi interest in an Etruscan tomb on the estate of an aristocratic family. Bohjalian said he did a lot of research for the book. I spent time interviewing historians who knew how the Italians would try to protect frescoes from bombing and what precisely the Nazis were trying to steal. I also spent time with a cardiologist to understand the state of heart surgery and learning the level of Italian police forensics in the 1950s. That took a lot of work. He gets his ideas from everywhere, for example, watching his daughter in a production of West Side Story was an inspiration. It made me want to do my own story of Romeo and Juliet Later, while in Italy, a friend told me how Nazis had tried to blow up a tower but it failed. It made me realize that Tuscany was a Dantes Inferno during World War II. I realized thats where I wanted to set my story. Bohjalian always has expert readers review his drafts. For this book it included a burn surgeon, an Etruscan expert, cardiologist and an Italian familiar with the area. He said, If there is something factually incorrect in your novel, the entire foundation collapses. The reader cant trust the plausibility of your story and characters. Plus, they often tell me a remarkable story that never came up in my research and it adds greatly to the book. We talked about todays technology, digital versus hard cover books. Bohjalian said, My thoughts are irrelevant because the genie is out of the bottle. Half of my sales are digital. I personally prefer books made of paper but I understand there are a lot of readers who now prefer ebooks and digital reading devices.continued on page 47 Italian & Mediterranean Cuisine Casual Beachfront Dining with Live Entertainment Open for Dinner From 5 p.m. until Late 3111 West Gulf Drive Call (239)472-4559 TraditionsOnTheB Gift Cards Available Specializing in weddings, private parties and corporate events Open 7 days a week Open 7 days a week Open 7 days a week with with with Live Entertainment Live Entertainment Live Entertainment Every Night!

My Stars FOR WEEK OF JANUARY 20, 2014ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Although youre getting kudos and other positive reactions to your suggestions, dont let the cheers drown out some valid criticisms. Better to deal with them now than later. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Following your keen Bovine intuition pays off, as you not only reassess the suggestions some people are putting in front of you, but also their agendas for doing so. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You continue on a high-enthusiasm cycle as that new project youve assumed takes shape. Youre also buoyed by the anticipation of receiving some good news about a personal matter. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your eagerness to immerse yourself in your new assignment is understandable. But be careful that you dont forget to take care of that pressing personal situation as well. LEO (July 23 to August 22) This is a good time to learn a new skill that could give a clever Cat an edge in the upcoming competition for workplace opportunities. Enjoy the arts this weekend with someone special. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) You could risk creating an impasse if you insist on expecting more from others than theyre prepared to give. Showing flexibility in what youll accept could prevent a stalemate. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Although you can weigh all factors of a dispute to find an agreeable solution for others, you might need the skilled input of someone you trust to help you deal with an ongoing situation of your own. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) The good news is that your brief period of self-doubt turns into a positive I can do anything attitude. The better news is that youll soon be able to prove it. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) This is a good time for Sagittarians to start making travel plans while you still can select from a wide menu of choices and deals, and not be forced to settle for leftovers. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Like your zodiacal sign, the sure-footed Goat, you wont allow obstacles in your path to keep you from reaching your goal. Dont be surprised by who asks to go along with you. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Let your head dominate your heart as you consider the risks that might be involved in agreeing to be a friends co-signer or otherwise act as his or her backup in a financial matter. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Prioritize: Resolve to close the door and let your voicemail take your phone calls while you finish up a task before the end-of-week deadline. Then go out and enjoy a fun-filled weekend. BORN THIS WEEK : Your capacity for care and compassion helps to bring comfort to others. On Jan. 26, 1788, the first of 50,000 convicts banished from England to Australia land in Botany Bay. These were not hardened criminals; only a small minority were transported for violent offenses. Among the first group was a 70-year-old woman who had stolen cheese to eat. On Jan. 20, 1841, China cedes the island of Hong Kong to the British. In 1898, Britain was granted an additional 99 years of rule. In September 1984, the British and the Chinese signed a formal agreement approving a 1997 turnover of the island. On Jan. 25, 1924, the first Winter Olympics begin at Chamonix in the French Alps. Spectators were thrilled by the ski jump and bobsled, as well as 12 other events involving a total of six sports. On Jan. 23, 1957, the Wham-O toy company rolls out the first batch of aerodynamic plastic discs, now known as Frisbees. The story of the Frisbee began in Bridgeport, Conn., where students from nearby universities would throw empty Frisbie Pie Company tins to each other, yelling Frisbie! as they let go. On Jan. 21, 1976, from Londons Heathrow Airport and Orly Airport outside Paris, the first Concordes with commercial passengers simultaneously take flight to Bahrain in the Persian Gulf and Rio de Janeiro, respectively. The Concordes flew well past the sound barrier at 1,350 mph. On Jan. 24, 1980, U.S. officials announce that America is ready to sell military equipment (excluding weapons) to communist China as a reaction to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. An additional agreement was signed for the construction of a station in China that would be able to receive information from an American satellite. On Jan. 22, 1998, in a Sacramento, Calif., courtroom, Theodore J. Kaczynski pleads guilty to all federal charges against him, acknowledging his responsibility for a 17-year campaign of package bombings attributed to the Unabomber. The Unabomber was named after the UNABOM Task Force. The name came from the words university and airline bombing. It was Polish chess grandmaster Savielly Tartakower who made the following sage observation: Victory goes to the player who makes the next-to-last mistake. In the late 19th century, a single female Bengal tiger, known as the Champawat Tiger, was solely responsible for an estimated 430 deaths in India and Nepal. After evading hunters and the Nepalese Army for years, she was finally killed in 1907 by a hunter named Jim Corbett. A leech can consume 10 times its weight in its victims blood. In 2011, during a tough financial time for the nation of Romania, the government instituted a 16 percent tax on the incomes of selfproclaimed witches, fortunetellers and astrologers. Those so employed were incensed and vowed retribution, some casting spells against the president and those members of the government who had supported the legislation. In an unrelated incident, the legislature also drafted a measure that would punish those who incorrectly predicted the future. Famed magician Harry Houdini was born with the less-than-inspiring name Erich Weiss. There is a planet named Gliese 436b orbiting a red dwarf star. Its about the size of Neptune, and its very, very hot -roughly 820 degrees Fahrenheit. None of this is terribly unusual; whats truly surprising is the fact that the planets surface is made up largely of ice (with an outer layer of hydrogen and helium) despite the heat. It seems that the gravity and atmospheric pressure are so great that water is forced into a solid form, creating so-called hot ice. A Louisiana man once caught a grape in his mouth that was tossed from 252 feet away. He has all the virtues I dislike and none of the vices I admire. -Sir Winston Churchill BEST TAKE-OUT ON THE ISLANDS CALL FOR DAILY SPECIALS472-9300 Jerrys FoodsRestaurant & DeliDaily Lunch Specials Salad Bar Take-Out or Eat In Breakfast Lunch DinnerOpen Daily 6 a.m. 10 p.m. The Only Dockside Dining on Sanibel Located at the Sanibel Marina Specializing in Local Seafood We also feature Petite & 10 oz.

47 ISLAND SUN JANUARY 17, 2014 Poets Corner selected by Tanya HochschildStare Downby Jim GustafsonAt seven, Zeda is already a scientist. Her attention spans the smallest moving thing with a patience that defies her years. It is the day before her parents will take her away to live. We walk together around the manmade pond that exaggerates the meaning of our waterfront home. An alligators wide eyes watch us, as we stop, her small hand in mine. We stare. Dont blink, she orders, in a most serious tone, taking charge of the situation, as she has done since the delivery room. We stand together hand and hand, a sculpture, old man and a child, so still, birds contemplate landing. Without a ripple, the gator moves, swims out, and submerges with a stealth to be envied. Zeda, mustering all the joy of childhood shouts to the gator, We won, then, drops my hand, throws her arms around my waist, leans back, looks up into my face and speaks words that move the axis of the earth, and change the tides forever Ill miss you Grandpa. Jim Gustafson is currently pursuing his MFA at the University of Tampa. He lives in Fort Myers, Florida where he reads, writes, and pulls weeds. This poem is from his anthology Driving Home. We invite submissions from local poets. Anyone interested may submit their work via email to tutsie@ Each week, individual work will be showcased. From page 45Library FundraiserAs to advice for aspiring authors and finding an agent, he said, It isnt easy to find an agent. I had 250 rejection slips before I sold a book. I dont recommend self publishing. The October 2013 issue of Writers Digest listed 28 agents seeking new writers. You need an agent to sell your book to a publisher. Bohjalian added, I am not a historian. I am interested in creating really interesting characters, people my readers care about and want to spend time with. That being said, you are bound to enjoy spending time with Chris Bohjalian at the February 18 luncheon.

NEWSPAPERSanibel&CaptivaIslands VOL. 21, NO. 30 SANIBEL & CAPTIVA ISLANDS, FLORIDA JANUARY 17, 2014 B BSECTION Three Firefighters Get Phoenix Awardby Jeff LysiakLast week, three members from the Sanibel Fire & Rescue District received praise for their efforts in saving the life of a man who collapsed while playing tennis at an island resort. Captain/Paramedic John Griffith, Firefighter/Paramedic Tony Fontaine and Firefighter/EMT Ron Ritchie each received the prestigious Phoenix Award, given to members of the squad who have helped bring an unresponsive patient back to life. According to Fontaine, an emergency call came in to Sanibel Fire Station #1 on May 4, 2013. A man whose name, age and hometown was not identified had been playing tennis when his friend saw him collapse. The witness flagged down a security guard from the resort, who immediately began to perform CPR on the victim. The witness then called 9-1-1. A Sanibel Police Department patrol car was in the area and responded to the call, said Fontaine. We arrived on the scene four minutes after SPD, and the victim was unresponsive and not breathing normally. Griffith, who earned his fifth Phoenix Award, credited Officer Jon Smith of the SPD with performing life-saving actions on the victim. He also encouraged people to take an AED/CPR class. Fontaine said that the patient was then transported via ambulance to HealthPark Medical Center in Fort Myers. While in transport, crew members continued to work on him. By the time they arrived at the hospital, the patient had good BP (blood pressure) and pulses. He was stabilized and spent five days in HealthParks intensive care unit before being discharged. This was a good one because he walked out of the hospital on his own two feet, said Fontaine, who had previously received a Phoenix Award in 2011, eight months after joining the fire department. Last month, the three Sanibel firefighters, Smith and Lee County EMT Auriel LaValla who also responded to the scene were also given Phoenix Awards for their lifesaving actions at a ceremony held at the Lee County Emergency Operations Center. At that event, the man whose life they saved presented them their awards. Its pretty rare that we ever get to see the people whose lives we saved again, added Fontaine. And this man turned out to be a minister, too. Ron Ritchie, Tony Fontaine and John Griffith with the Phoenix Award plaque that hangs at Sanibel Fire Station #1 photo by Jeff Lysiak Bolers Named Honorary Chairs Of Community Golf Challenge The Sanctuary Golf Club, title sponsor and host of the 12th annual Sanctuary Community Golf Challenge on January 25, announced John and Mary Jo Boler of Sanibel as honorary chairpersons. Each year we select a very special person or, in this case, persons that have truly made a difference to our island community and John and Mary Jo have certainly personified... that. Their generosity is virtually unparalleled and covers such a wide variety of charities, said Al Hanser, president of the Community Foundation of the Islands. Our hope is that you set a new record level of support from the participants. As proven by the improving amount raised each year it has grown into a meaningful fundraiser for the many needy recipients, the couple said in a statement. They said the $920,000 raised demonstrates the ongoing generosity and caring of the club, its members, and islanders. Sponsorship opportunities range from the $5,000 Diamond Partnership, which includes additional rounds of golf, lunch and dinner at The Sanctuary Golf Club, to a $150 Hole Partnership. All proceeds go directly to the Charitable Foundation of the Islands, to assist island nonprofit organizations and individual island residents and workers who have experienced hardships such as medical and financial emergencies. The golf challenge begins at 10:30 a.m. with a brunch followed by a 12:30 p.m. shotgun start. Afterward, golfers meet at the clubhouse for drinks and hors doeuvres, an awards presentation, and the ever-popular Helicopter Drop. For more information, contact Brett Kist at 472-6223 or John and Mary Jo Boler Education Is FashionableStarfish Scholarship Foundation of Sanibel and Captiva will host its first fundraiser of the year, Education is Fashionable, on Tuesday, January 21 at The Sanctuary Golf Club on Sanibel.

Igo has been named chief executive officer of The Sanibel Captiva Trust Company, the parent company of the Tampa Bay Trust Company and the Naples Trust Company. Igo will also retain his duties as the president of The Tampa Bay Trust Company. Igo has experience with high net worth clients and a history of building the business with founder Albert Hanser since the two met in the fall of 2000, according to Hanser. He joined the company at its inception in 2001 and has been instrumental in growing the asset base to over $1 billion in spearheading the expansion into Tampa, Naples, and its home office on Sanibel & Captiva islands. He serves as a member of the Asset Management Committee, the Risk Management Committee, and the Strategic Planning Committee. There is no better person to take us to the next level of expanded client services and company achievements, said Dick Pyle, newly appointed president of The Sanibel Captiva Trust Company. Weve built the business one relationship at a time. That is a comfortable pace for us and one that benefits the families we serve. Were really a home office for clients in the $2 million to $25 million category. Its old-fashioned, old-school service. This past year we crossed over the $1 billion mark in assets under management, added Chip Lesch, board cochairman. Terry Igo Quelch To Speak At Lions ClubOn Wednesday, January 22 at 7:30 p.m., the Sanibel Captiva Lions Club will host guest speaker Commander Douglas B. Quelch, who will share his rich experience of Arab culture and religion. Quelch, a Vietnam War veteran, served on six Navy ships, including command of two of them. In addition to his three masters degrees, he studied at the Defense Intelligence College in Washington, DC and has taught at the Royal Naval Staff College in Greenwich, England and the U.S. Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island. Following Navy retirement, he worked for Booz Allen Hamilton for 11 years, living almost eight of those years in Saudi Arabia as an advisor to the Royal Saudi Naval Forces. Currently, he and his wife are retired and living in Fort Myers. The subject of Quelchs talk is best summarized in his own words: Knowing something about the Arab culture and its primary religion is important to us as citizens in support of our service men and women, who have been deploying and fighting in the region for almost 25 years. The San-Cap Lions Club welcomes the public to this special event. The Community House is located at 2173 Periwinkle Way on Sanibel. CPR/AED Course At Rec CenterAn American Red Cross Community CPR/AED course will be held Sunday, January 19 from noon to 5 p.m. at the Sanibel Recreation Center. The course provides participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to sustain life and minimize the consequences of injury or sudden illness until advanced medical help arrives. Upon successful completion of this course, participants will hold an adult, infant and child CPR/ AED certification valid for two years. The cost is $70 for members and $87.50 for non-members and includes all materials. Skills acquired in this course cannot be applied to a lifeguarding certification as this course certifies participants in rescue skills for lay responders, not professional rescuers.

6B ISLAND SUN JANUARY 17, 2014 Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellLast May, the Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club welcomed Sanibel Mayor Kevin Ruane to speak about a development project under consideration on Sanibel being called the Civic Core/ Cultural Center. After Hurricane Charlie in 2004, build-back plans were a necessity and at the same time commercial and private properties needed repairs to meet city codes. Some code changes had to be addressed for buildback and a good look at future land development projects had to be explored to formulate the best future land-use outcome for Sanibel. Ruane fast-forwarded his talk to 2013 and came to discuss a plan that had been mulling around the island for more than a few years and now, because of development and land-use planning, was getting attention. It was the centralizing of civic and cultural entities on Sanibel. The location under consideration for this concept is on the north side of Periwinkle land owned by the Sanibel Community Association (parking area), BIG ARTS Herb Strauss Theater (parking and theater land), 25 acres of the citys public works land (15 buildable), and connecting with the historical village, city hall, police department, and library properties. Yowzer! Now thats a BIG plan. The time was ripe, the city council was in favor of a plan of this type, and many of the civic and cultural entities on Sanibel were in a position of having to rebuild aging properties and/or needing additional space. Bringing us up-to-date on this project Friday, Ralph Clark, representing BIG ARTS, and Richard Johnson representing the community association, gave Rotarians an overview of the master plan. As they both stated, It takes time to develop a plan like this. This is a huge undertaking and cooperation between some of these entities has in the past been less than cooperative. They told us that five representatives of each of the cultural or civic entities involved met on numerous occasions with city representatives and discussed the needs and concerns of their own organizations. They wanted to understand what the plans would mean to them and why moving and constructing new facilities on the site outlined would benefit their members and Sanibel. The facts are that BIG ARTS, The Community House, and Sanibels Center 4 Life all had major construction/improvement projects on the drawing boards and if there ever was a time to consider moving, this was it. Clark gave a PowerPoint presentation outlining the key reasons BIG ARTS will need in the very near future a new home such as a need for additional classroom/workshop space; modernizing and enhancement of technologies and theater space; upgrading of seating for attendees; centralized office and box office location; event preparation area; and more parking. The board wants to enhance the arts education programs and performances to enrich island residents and guests. Johnson spoke of the much publicized plans for construction improvements on The Community House being put on hold to investigate the idea of a new building plus moving the historic community house across Periwinkle on association property and joining the movement toward a centralized civic/ cultural center. The associations needs are similar in many ways to BIG ARTS: improve an aging, outdated facility, upgrade technology to improve usage, office space, etc. This cooperative spirit between the city and non-profits is unprecedented here on the island. This is not a slamdunk project. There are still concerns and many details to work out. Financial support (government grants and organizational financing, etc.) is a major concern and a referendum will have to go continued on page 7B Ralph Clark Richard Johnson 2 2 39.834.8141 LIKE me on to get all the latest videos & posts on island life & real estate news.

10B ISLAND SUN JANUARY 17, 2014 Could Two Hoosiers Provide The Pitching Desperately Needed By The Minnesota Twins?by Ed FrankBaseball normally takes a back seat in Indiana, where basketball is a second religion. Interestingly, however, the future of Minnesota Twins pitching could rest on the strong right arms of Kyle Gipson and Alex Meyer, who grew up just a few miles apart in the Hoosier state. The six-foot, nine-inch Meyer was obtained by the Twins a year ago from the Washington Nationals in a trade for outfielder Denard Span. He was the Nationals first-round selection in the 2011 Major League Draft. One of the top prospects in baseball, Meyer made national news a few weeks ago when it was reported that he was working in the off-season as a $63-a-day substitute school teacher in his home town of Greensburg, Indiana. This is a far cry from the reported $2 million signing bonus he was paid by the Nationals two years ago. Those teaching days will end soon for Meyer, who has been invited by the Twins to participate with the Major League team in spring training. In his second year of professional baseball last season, the lanky Meyer, with a 95-mile-an-hour fastball, compiled a 3.21 ERA in 70 innings for the Twins Double-A New Britain. He also pitched in the 2013 Arizona Fall League, where he recorded 28 strikeouts in 26 innings of work with a 3.12 ERA. He was rated the fourth best prospect in that league where top minor league players compete. He really opened some eyes out there, said Brad Steil, director of minor league operations for the Twins. He did a good job in Arizona, probably the best of our guys there. Meyer may need another year of seasoning in the Minors, but barring injury, he should become a future stalwart of the Twins pitching staff. Hailing from Greenfield, Indiana, less than 50 miles from Meyers Greensburg, Kyle Gipson has tasted brief Major League experience with the Twins. He was the clubs first-round draft pick in 2009, but his progress was slowed two years later by an elbow injury that required Tommy John surgery. The 26-year-old Gipson is fully recovered and shared time last season between Triple-A Rochester and the Twins. After being called up to the majors in mid-season, he was 2-4 in 51 innings pitched. That disappointing debut resulted in a demotion back to Rochester. Kyle is highly intelligent and it is not unusual for a player to struggle when first called up. It was a learning experience for him. I fully expect him to compete for starting pitching (with the Twins) this year, Steil said. Gibson currently is listed on the teams 40-man Major League roster. Could Hoosier pitching provide the salvation for the woeful pitching that has plagued the Twins of late? Well know in the next year or so. Everblades Split Pair With South Carolina The Florida Everblades failed to close ground on first-place South Carolina last weekend, splitting a pair of closely fought games with the Stingrays at Germain Arena. After falling 2-1 last Friday, the Everblades took a 1-0 decision on Saturday when goalie Trevor Cann recorded 29 saves As the week began, the local hockey team with a 21-11-1-1 season record trailed South Carolina by nine points in the ECHL South Division.

With identity theft a growing problem, you should securely dispose of unwanted financial and personal files so they dont end up in the wrong hands.

19B ISLAND SUN JANUARY 17, 2014School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, I am a new to special education as my child was just recently identified as learning disabled. I am so confused by all the jargon, especially about the various teaching and helper people. My district has special education teachers, general education teachers, teaching assistants, paraprofessionals and teaching aides. My son has paraprofessional support on his IEP (Individualized Education Program). Are teaching assistants the same as paraprofessionals? Should I request one or the other? Will you please clarify? Angelique D., Port Charlotte, Florida Angelique, Yes, the terminology and jargon used in special education is very confusing and even more so when people do not use the correct terms. Regardless of the terms your district uses, you should not have to guess at what the terms mean. Federal law provides definitions for teachers and paraprofessionals. These are the terms educators should use in education settings and when discussing services in a childs IEP. If school personnel use local terms such as aide or assistant, ask that they write the definitions of these terms in the meeting notes or minutes. This will help you and others know what is being discussed. You may even want to ask for the definitions, in current federal education law, of what school personnel means when they use these terms. It is very common to call the paraprofessionals who assist teachers teaching assistants and call paraprofessionals who are translators or provide physical help to students aides. What is the difference between a general education teacher and a special education teacher? Certification requirements are established by each state. The difference between a general education teacher and a special education teacher may be as little as two introductory undergraduate classes in special education or a great many more courses of study. If a person who teaches a child needs to have specific training, this should be spelled out in the childs IEP. You should not assume that all people with a particular job title such as a special education teacher or teaching assistant have the same education, training or expertise. If your child needs a teacher with more training than the minimum required for certification, make sure this is specified in your childs IEP. For example, to read fluently, a child with dyslexia typically needs to have instruction from teachers who are trained in language-based, multisensory, structured, instructional program. Yet, continued on page 23B Entrepreneurs Law SchoolFGCUs Florida Small Business Development Centers 15th annual Entrepreneurs Law School will be held January 25 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the FGCU Cohen Center.

20B ISLAND SUN JANUARY 17, 2014 Several years ago, an elderly client died. His four middle-aged children gathered in my conference room to discuss the trust administration. The deceased was a real go-getter, having led an entrepreneurial, hard charging lifestyle. It didnt come without drawbacks, for he had experienced three failed marriages and some other issues that I would soon discover. While I reviewed the trust and the process that the family would follow to liquidate his holdings, file the proper notices, clear any creditors that might be out there and file tax returns, I noticed that the deceaseds youngest son was staring out the window, apparently disinterested in the conversation. I just assumed that the emotion of losing a parent consumed his attention. While a daughter was asking about the logistics of moving some valuable artwork across the country to an auctioneer, the youngest son suddenly piped up. We never even played catch, this now 40-something man said, tears welling in his eyes. Ill never forget that day. My kids were much younger then and when I arrived home after work that night I hugged them tight and suggested that we all take a dive in the pool after dinner which is not something that I do a whole lot of. We splashed and played Marco Polo while my wife sat in a lounge chair shaking her head at my apparent craziness. Lifes funny in a way. Most of us feel the strain of constant responsibilities to our spouse, children and other loved ones. We feel the need to work, provide for our families, and make sure the children get a proper upbringing and education. But sometimes we get lost in the details forgetting the big picture. Like carving out a moment or two to watch a beautiful sunset, take a stroll on the beach, or just to play catch. Many island residents enjoy having their families visit over the winter and spring seasons. I imagine with those up north suffering through one of the coldest winters since 1978, well be seeing more of our family and friends booking flights to our sunny spot in Florida this year. While it can be difficult with adult children and grandchildren making our daily lives a little more hectic, remember that it will only be for a few days. So take a bike ride. Enjoy a sunset. Rent a kayak. Grill up some hamburgers while uncorking your favorite wine. Youll be happy you did. Craig R. Hersch.

Many times the only option has been to hire a decorator who charges a fee for his or her time. But what happens if its obvious within the first hour or two that you just arent going to click with that decorator? Unfortunately, youre left feeling very uncomfortable sometimes intimidated and youre back to square one, having accomplished nothing. With todays overwhelming choices in home furnishings, a professional decorator is no longer a luxury, but a necessity. A decorators role is to professionally assist you in creating the decor of your choice in your home.

21B ISLAND SUN JANUARY 17, 2014 From page 20BPick A Decoratorstyle before selecting your decorator, the more productive your decorator will be in working with you.

Select a decorator who is interested in making your dream home a reality. With a little thought and planning, working with a professional decorator can be a truly pleasurable experience. Marcia Feeney is an interior designer on Sanibel/Captiva Islands. She can be reached at Campers With Special Needs Sought For Trailways Camp ExperienceThe Robert V. & Benjamin G. Miller Fund announced that once again it will be partnering with Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida, Inc. for Trailways Camp. The camp, which was launched in October of 2012 to address the social isolation experienced by adults with special needs and their caregivers in Southwest Florida, will be held February 17 to 20 at Riverside Retreat Center in LaBelle. Trailways Camp is a unique retreat for adults with disabilities, said Jesi Cason, camp director. Its an adventure for people who want to get out into nature, try fishing, do arts and crafts and make lifelong friends. Many adults with disabilities live with aging family members or caregivers and have few social or recreational opportunities that provide relief or respite for their caregivers. Trailways Camp removes barriers to social isolation by giving participants a chance to experience quality social recreational activities in a safe environment while giving respite to the families and caregivers. A structured schedule of activities supervised by qualified staff and volunteers makes this camping experience unforgettable, said Cason. Each camper is assigned to a team which is led by a counselor throughout the retreat.

22B ISLAND SUN JANUARY 17, 2014 deaRPharmacistLabs You Should Ask Your Doctor Forby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: I want to get healthy this year. I have all sorts of problems that plague me and Im curious to know if you were my doctor what labs would you have me do to uncover the root cause? AC, Newark, New Jersey Some of you spend money on tests that dont matter, like the standard thyroid test called TSH for thyroid stimulating hormone. The TSH does not indicate cellular (tissue) levels of thyroid hormone, meaning whats all over your body. TSH is a hormone produced in your brain and your brain and body dont match up. It shocks me that TSH is drawn thousands of times a day on all of you, and it offers no clue about your tissue levels. In fact, its normal many times, while you feel sick, tired, depressed and miserable. Ive listed some labs here for my newspaper column, but I know of more that can help you with all sorts of diseases, where to buy them affordably, and how to interpret them. If youd like to read the longer version of this article, go to my website, In the meantime, here are some labs that offer better clues: Ratio of Free T3 to Reverse T3: This is a ratio of two measurements that speak to how your thyroid is doing. The ratio should be > 2 in order for you to feel good. This is a way to really see how your thyroid hormone levels are doing and much better than TSH. If this ratio is under two, you could have symptoms such as weight gain, fatigue, depression, hair thinning, cold hands and feet, brain fog and memory loss. Serum insulin: Most practitioners are focused on your FBS or fasting blood sugar but that is not as useful as your insulin (which reduces blood sugar). Your FBS will be normal for many years while your insulin is sky high, because its frantically being squirted from your pancreas in an effort to quell the high blood sugar. So your blood sugar is normal for years. Youll be told your FBS is normal, so not to worry about diabetes. Shame. Im saying the insulin is a better clue to your health because if its high, that says youre in trouble. How long do you think your insulin will help you? One day your pancreas will give up, stop making insulin and then your blood sugar goes up! Your diabetes didnt happen overnight. Your serum insulin level would have told you! You can read more in my Diabetes Without Drugs book, and learn why statins cause high blood sugar too. Leptin: Many of you have weight problems. Leptin resistance may be causing that. Leptin gets affected by yo yo dieting. You will feel tired and heavy if leptin resistance is the problem. Most of you have never even heard of leptin, no less measured it. Above 12, its a slam dunk you have leptin resistance. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

Dear Mom & Me, I have been retired for a few years and it is not like I thought it would be. It is not all fun and games and a lot of bad things have happened that I didnt expect. I didnt think I would miss being connected and working at the old company, lose my self esteem and get depressed, but I have so I admitted it to myself that I needed help. A few sessions with a psychologist helped me over the bad times, and with his help I now see the nice cake and not just the hole in the donut of life. It worked for me and I am glad that you advised it for others. Please comment. Albert Dear Albert, Admitting that you need assistance is half the battle. It is a scary position to be in admitting that your life is out of control and you need assistance. Congratulations Be well. Pryce Dear Albert, Life is rarely all fun and games at any time in the lifespan, in spite of what many younger people think as they pass golf courses and see seniors having some fun. You have assumed responsibility for your own health care and taken appropriate action. Help is out there and I am glad you are now feeling better. Enjoy. Lizzie Lizzie and Pryces email address is by Karen L. Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAMLRemember that your heart is the largest generator of electricity in the body and the last organ to stop when the lights go out. So, we want to do whatever we can to assist the hearts energy to stay strong and vibrant. Last week we learned three tools to assist: 1. Improving our Internal Compass to help revitalize; 2. Holding our Heart Source point to reduce heart disease; and 3. Biting down on the little finger to calm the body. This week we will visit a number of additional techniques which demonstrate how interconnected our energies are; by moving energies in one area the impact is far reaching, affecting many other parts of our being as well. Trace Heart Meridian. If you are feeling anxious; overwhelmed; in panic; have angina, experience pain in your armpits; gums bleeding; low or high blood pressure; pain in chest; chill easily; circulation problems; dizziness; overheat easily; heart palpitations; bleeding problems; extreme thirst; excessive bruising or swollen glands then it is extremely likely you will benefit from tracing your Heart meridian. Affirmation for this Meridian is, I deeply and completely love and accept myself. Some believe that heart is the center of our essence, which enables connection not only to ourselves where we find center, but also to all other living things, including humans. Remembering that matter follows energy, stating a positive thought shifts the energy just by the intention. This is the metaphysical fabric of life. We are all part of that pure fabric of existence so reap its benefits. Pathway of Meridian. Heart meridian is associated with the heart organ. The beginning point of Heart meridian is at the deepest recesses under your armpit, where it is the most protected of all meridian pathways; and the end point is at the medial edge of the base of the nail on your little finger. To trace Heart, place your open palm under the opposite side of the body in the middle of your armpit. Continue moving your open palm down the inside of the arm in a direct line to the underside of the little finger where you pull the energy off. Thats it. You just traced Heart meridian. Belt Flow is horizontal Band of Energy. Frequently, energy gets stuck from the waist up and from the waist down. Around the belly is a horizontal flow of energy known as the Belt Flow. If energy is not flowing through this area, it gets stuck. From the waist up, it affects the heart. So by opening this channel you help balance the flow of energy to and from the heart throughout the entire body. This is a fun exercise, especially for kids, since we use affirmations that are memorable. Place both hands on your back at the right side and sweep across the sides, around the front of your belly. Lift your hands, move them to your back two more times and then sweep the hands down the opposite leg. The affirmation is, Where is my belt? Where is my belt? Where is by belt? My pants are falling down! Place both hands on your back at the left side, sweep across the sides and around the front of your belly. Lift your hands and repeat two more times and then sweep down the opposite leg. Use the affirmation to help you remember. By doing this technique, the energy is able to flow from the head to the toes and vise-versa with no energetic obstruction that keeps it stuck at the waist. This is the magic of energy medicine. Have fun with your energy. Next weeks topic is New Year Resolution Strengthen Your Heart Energy, Part III.

Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: I recently was transferred with my job to a new state. I found a nice condo in a quiet neighborhood but I have not really made any friends. I am not sure how to go about making new friends and I am by myself. Most of the people at work are married. Do you have any suggestions?A: Relocating to a new area does take time in terms of adjusting and making new friends. You mentioned that your co-workers are married, and it seems as though you have not met the neighbors yet. There are times to cherish solitude, and there are times to cherish good friends and family. Friends help cushion the fall of a stressful day. We dont need many friends, but we do need a handful of close friends to bond with and feel supported by in tough times. The hustle-bustle of life can often leave people with many virtual friends, but few people to call up and socialize with. Consider organizing a potluck dinner party for some of your married co-workers or a small gathering of your neighbors in your ondo complex and celebrate your new dwelling, job, and lifes simple pleasures. I bet the new people you invite will be happy to get to know you and in time, you will be making friends to enjoy for the long run.

It is designed to help family caregivers reduce stress, improve self-confidence, communicate feelings better, balance their lives, increase their ability to make tough decisions and locate helpful resources. Classes will be held on Tuesdays for six weeks, beginning January 21, from 9 a.m. to noon at Chapel by the Sea, 100 Chapel Street (2500 block of Estero Boulevard), Fort Myers Beach. Special discounts for companionship care in the home as well as respite care on-site, are available for PTC participants during the weekly class times. For more information or to register, call 343-9224. Class size is limited and pre-registration is required. Classes consist of six sessions held once a week. Two experienced class leaders conduct the series (many are experienced caregivers themselves, who have successfully applied the techniques they teach). Interactive lessons, discussions and brainstorming will help participants put the tools into action. A $30 donation for The Caregiver Helpbook, developed specifically for the class, is requested to help defray the cost of the book, but not required to attend the class. From page 19BSchool Smartmany states rarely require teachers to have this language training to be certified as special education teachers. To learn the minimum requirements for special education teachers in your state, contact the Bureau of Credentialing for your state department at http://www. or htmls/states.html and ask for this information. 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.

Dragging a sh up onto the sand if youre going to release it is not an option as it usually damages or kills the sh. Hold the sh in the water while you unhook it if youre going to release it. The less you can touch a sh before release the better for the sh. If you want a picture with the sh, support it as you lift it out of the water and do it quickly. Before releasing, revive the sh while holding it in the water; moving it slowly back and forth so water goes over its gills. The sh will let you know when its ready to swim off. Florida just recently changed the regulations on shing from shore. Florida residents as well as out of state visitors need a shing license to sh from shore. Shore Fishing:Don't Harm The Fishby Capt.
