"You know the part," he said, referring to
a famous movie line, "where Jack Nicholson

From that point on, Judah, in no uncer-

interests were not only polluting our local

also starving the Everglades of critically-need-
ed fresh water flows.

Playhouse being returned to its origin as a school

submitted by Emilie Alfino, museum manager
F'or 30 years the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village, its volunteers, staff
nd directors, have worked to preserve the essence of life on Sanibel from
Ithe 1880s through the 1940s. Its buildings and their contents tell the stories
of typical "Cracker" life, from fishing to farming. Visitors learn how they shopped,
how they lived, and how residents learned. Village docents volunteer their time to
bring to life pioneer days on Sanibel.
The village, in partnership with the City of Sanibel, is a 501(c)3 entity and is man-
aged and operated by its board. The city owns the land and buildings and provides
budget support for maintenance and some staffing.
Since 1984, when the Rutland home stood alone as the island's history museum,
the museum has grown into what it is today, a village of 11 buildings that attracts
10,000 visitors annually.

Rutland House under renovation
How did the single-house museum become today's Historical Village?
After the city of Sanibel was incorporated in 1974, a Historical Preservation
Committee, led by Elinor Dormer, resident of Shore Haven and founder of the muse-
um and village, set about saving historical buildings. After Clarence Rutland died in
1982, the Muench family, which had purchased his home, donated it to the village.
The museum opened in 1984 after some renovation work was completed. It was
open just one day each week.
In 1991-92, the Bailey family donated Bailey's General Store, Miss Charlotta's
Tearoom and the Old Post Office, all dating from 1927.
In 1998, Burnap Cottage, a fishing cottage from Woodring Point that was built in
1898, was donated.

Special tours are offered as well. Approximately 600 people took part last year,
including groups from around the world.
The Heritage Garden has been planted and cared for by volunteers and represents
the typical truck farm of a Sanibel resident. At one time, tomatoes, peppers, eggplants
and watermelons all grew abundantly in Sanibel's rich soil. The garden is a major
attraction for visitors.

Old Neighboring
Homes Reunited
At The Village
n October 2012, the Sanibel
Historical Village acquired two build-
ings that share a long history together
Shore Haven, a rather large Sears kit
home, and the caretakers cottage used
by Hannah and Isaiah Gavin as they
assisted Daisy Mayer in her declining
years and took care of the building and
grounds. They frequently stayed over-
night in the cottage.
Soon after acquiring these buildings,
the village board hired an architect and
landscape architect to help plan and exe-
cute the restoration, renovation and land-

scaping changes required for occupancy
approval and to fit the buildings into the
village plan.
"Very early on we realized that the
cost demanded that we divide the proj-
ect into two phases," said Dorothy
Donaldson, board president.
The first phase is to completely restore
the exterior of Shore Haven to its original
form while providing wheelchair access to
the building, and to renovate the interior
first floor to meet current building and
ADA codes. Also included is modification
to the landscaping immediately surround-
ing Shore Haven once the construction
has been completed. This includes a new
entrance to the village, walkways and
The second phase targets the care-
taker cottage restoration, landscaping and
possibly a more desirable location. It also
includes equipping Shore Haven with a
chair lift that will allow the second story
to be used. This phase will most likely not
start until 2015 and is greatly dependent
on grant funding and contributions.
"To date the work on Shore Haven is
about 70 percent complete," Donaldson
In addition to replacing the wooden
siding, all non-original vinyl windows were
replaced. In addition, crews installed a
new roof, a handicapped ramp and a
new concrete landing and steps. A com-
plete overhaul of the HVAC and wiring
system was completed, a new entrance
wooden door is on its way, and an ADA-
compliant bathroom was put in.
Total construction cost for Phase I

Aerial view of the Sanibel Hisotrical Village
was budgeted for $266,595. To date,
total payments equal $129,432 with an
additional $83,850 due within the next
30 days.
"The contractor, Gus Landl, estimates
that he will complete his portion of the
job by March," Donaldson said. "Painting
the exterior and weather sealing the enve-
lope of the building is John Gray. This
work may also be completed prior to the
30th anniversary celebration on March
Phase II costs have been initially bud-
geted at approximately $150,000 but

may rise higher due to landscaping issues.
This budget also does not include the
installation of fire hydrants on the prop-
erty in order to provide better protection
to the buildings and more flexibility to the
site plan. The village board and the City
of Sanibel's planning department will be
reviewing the total site plan before the
second phase can begin.
When it re-opens, Shore Haven be
reunited with its former neighbor on the

The Captiva Island Historical Society has opened its new Captiva History Gallery.
Open during Captiva Memorial Library hours, the new exhibit room illustrates
Captiva's unique, diverse history. It is located in the Captiva Community Center
on Chapin Lane in Captiva and can be accessed through the Captiva Memorial
Library. Its other neighbors include Chapel-By-The-Sea, and the Captiva
Cemetery. They cleverly conceived and created History Gallery takes on the
wooden look of the interior of the old mailboat, 'Santiva', which serviced the
islands prior to the construction of the Sanibel Causeway in 1963. The boat
windows feature interpretive panels and touch screen access to historic photos
sure to pique one's historical interest. In addition visitors will enjoy looking out
through the windows of the boat to the 'views' that passengers saw as they
cruised between Fort Myers and the islands. The room also has a 'launchpad'
area where visitors can learn more about other historic sites and museums in
the area such as Useppa Museum, Boca Grande, Randall Research Center at
Pineland, and the Sanibel Historical Village.

Big Sugar Is
A Big Problem
The stark facts
Back-pumping from sugar cane fields
into Lake Okeechobee contains contami-
nated runoff, without adequate measures
to mitigate such pollution.
On an average year, about
455 billion gallons of water from
Lake Okeechobee is released to the
Caloosahatchee (325 billion gal.) and
St. Lucie (130 billion gal), which flows
directly into the estuaries on the east and
west coast of south Florida. In wet years,
such as 2005 and 2013, some 812 bil-
lion gallons of water was released from
Lake Okeechobee.
Yet, a key reservoir, designated C-43
- to be constructed with funding from
the Water Resource Development and
Reform Act is designed to store only
55 billion gallons of water, or less than 5
inches off Lake Okeechobee, and with no
water quality component.
An initiative known as the Central
Everglades Planning Project is important
to enhancing flow under the Tamiami
Trail. But it will convey only 68 billion
gallons from Lake Okeechobee south to
Everglades National Park. The balance
of the drainage flowing south is from the
Everglades Agricultural Area, with its con-
taminated runoff.
No relief for Lake 0 runoff
Yet another reservoir, C-44, is under
construction on the east coast. It will

store 16 billion gallons of water from sur-
rounding agricultural drainage, but with
no relief for Lake Okeechobee water
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
is currently restoring the Herbert Hoover
Dike to dam standards, but without a
spillway south to alleviate pressure on
the dike. So the Caloosahatchee and St.
Lucie Rivers then serve as the relief valves
during wet years for massive release of
polluted water discharge to the estuar-
ies on the west and east coast of south
The 1996 Polluter Pays
Constitutional Amendment requires
those who cause water pollution within
the Everglades Protection Area or the
Everglades Agricultural Area to be pri-
marily responsible for paying the costs of
the abatement of that pollution.
"Polluter pays" measure stifled
Unfortunately, however, the
State Supreme Court found that the
Amendment was not self-executing.
So for seventeen years the Florida
Legislature has deferred implementation
of a public mandate, thereby placing the
financial burden of Everglades restoration
on the backs of the public taxpayers.
Moreover, the Florida Dept. of
Environmental Protection Numeric
Nutrient Standards exempts the
Everglades Agricultural Area, which is the
primary source of phosphorous and nitro-
gen released to the Caloosahatchee, St.
Lucie and coastal estuaries.
In addition to all this, federal legisla-
tion further exacerbates the situation. The

Federal Sugar Loan and Price Support
in the Farm Bill is a protectionist scheme
that includes price support, import quo-
tas, and prohibitive tariffs. These result in
higher domestic sugar prices (two to three
times higher than the average world sugar
price), destruction of our precious natural
resources, and billions in profit to the
sugar industry from which the industry
pays for lobbying efforts to sustain its
environmentally destructive policies.
Following the presentation, an eager
and motivated audience responded with
questions and comments of their own
about the situation. Ideas ranged from a
boycott of sugar to focus on the federal
price subsidies that enable the sugar
industry to operate without effective com-
Judah reminded the group that con-
tinuing public pressure on local, state and
federal authorities is needed if measures
to combat these problems are to be
enacted. For more information, readers

Approve Resort
Room-Size Draft
by Jeff Lysiak
during Tuesday's planning commis-
sion meeting, a pair of resolutions
one regarding the room size
of short-term rental units in the Resort
Housing District and the other allowing
minor modifications to the rooflines of
lawfully existing structures devoted to a
nonconforming use were unanimously
approved and will be passed along to
city council for consideration.
The proposed room-size ordi-
nance change, moved forward by
the Land Development Code Review
Subcommittee following its March 25 ses-
sion, includes revising language within the
current code. The code presently allows
existing hotels, motels or resort condo-
miniums that are rehabilitated or rede-
veloped to maintain up to their existing
density, provided that they do not exceed
the square footage of the habitable area
that existed in the prior development.
Additionally, those units must continue
the short-term occupancy use of that
prior development.

commissioners Chuck Ketteman and
Tom Krekel asked Planning Director
Jimmy Jordan to confirm if those pro-
posed changes meant that resorts could
not increase the number of rooms nor
increase their occupancy or coverage
area. Jordan confirmed those facts, and
added that the ordinance change would
allow an increase the size of rooms if they
did so within the parameters of the city's
height restrictions.
Commissioners also talked about add-
ing architectural guidelines, but at a later
date. While commissioners have said that
they do not want to impose "strict archi-
tectural guides," at the same time they
don't want rehabilitated or redeveloped
resort housing units to construct "stark,
industrial-style buildings."
Chris Heidrick said of the dilemma
that the commission is "walking a fine
Resident Larry Schopp, speaking on
behalf of the Committee Of The Islands,
said that he was concerned about the
visual impact a rehabilitated or redevel-
oped resort might have, and that the city
would be facing a potential 30 percent
increase in room mass.
"For the same reason this island
should not have substandard rooms, we
also shouldn't have substandard design
standards," said Schopp. "Now is the
time to impose some binding architectural
Jordan told commissioners that he
supported passing the ordinance as draft-
ed, and that passing the proposed legisla-
tion would not prohibit the commission
from discussing establishing architectural
guidelines in the future. He also did not

think that drafting those guidelines would
take as long as six months, as was sug-
gested during public comment.
Ketteman, who made the motion to
approve the resolution, told his fellow
commissioners that he wanted to "get this
done in bites." Dr. Phillip Marks suggest-
ed that while he approved of Carribbean,
subtropical and Old Florida architectural
styles, he did not want Sanibel to follow
the look of Naples, heavily populated
with stucco and tile roof building designs.
Commissioners unanimously approved
the resolution, 7-0.
The other resolution being considered
on April 8 was also passed without any
objections, but was addressed by Robert
Pritt during public comment. He pro-
posed a few changes in language, includ-
ing removing the restriction against apply-
ing for a variance. Several members of
the commission balked at the suggested
amendments, since the planning staff did
not have a chance to investigate any of
the proposed changes.
"This doesn't feel right at all," said
Ketteman. "I'm not at all comfortable
with making any change other than
what's been drafted."
Planning Commission Chairman
Michael Valiquette made a motion to
approve the resolution, which was sec-
onded by Chris Heidrick. The motion
passed, 7 to 0.
Jordan told Pritt that he could meet
with members of his staff to go over his
recommended alterations to the draft
language, which will be considered by city
council next.

ISLAND SUN -APRIL 11, 2014 15


obert Ulrich, 95, of Estero,
Florida, formerly of Sanibel, died
on March 14, 2014 at Hope
Hospice, Fort Myers. He was born on
March 25, 1918 in Jersey City, New
Jersey, a son of William and Cesira
Buratti Ulrich. He married his high
school sweetheart, Anita Politi, with
whom he lived for 75 years until her
passing in November, 2009.
He is survived by their daughter
Barbara Cassavell and her husband,
Frank; five grandchildren; 16 great-
grandchildren and one great, great-grand-

daughter. His grandson, Frank Gerard
Cassavell, predeceased him in 1996.
Prior to entering World War II, he
served in the National Guard and was
then drafted in 1944 and served in the
European Campaign in Italy, 617th Field
Artillery Observation Battalion until the
end of the war. Because he was Italian,
he was often used as an interpreter.
Returning to New Jersey after the war,
he organized one of the first Veterans of
Foreign Wars posts, the Bright-Burrows,
and became its first commander.
Bob resumed his engineering career at
the Acme Tool and Machine Company
until 1957 and subsequently was
employed by the Flintkote Company in
New Jersey and New York in research
and development. He invented three
machines to produce building materials
and obtained three patents for the com-
He, his wife and daughter moved to
Washington Township, New Jersey in
1948 where he was active in town poli-
tics, becoming a road and planning board
commissioner for many years.
After retiring from the Flintkote
Company, he resumed his interest in the
home building business and embarked
on a career of building custom homes
in Upper Saddle River, New Jersy and
Broward County, Florida. He and Anita
retired to Sanibel Florida in 1985.
His keen interest in airplanes and fly-
ing began in his early teens when his
cousins Chet and Al Ulrich were test
pilots at Teterboro, New Jersey in the
early years of aviation. In later years, Bob
got his pilot's license and began flying.
He owned two airplanes, a Stinson and a
Cessna 172.
In his 70s, he embarked on a remark-
able project: building his own airplane, a
Dakota Hawk, which was subsequently
demolished in Hurricane Charley in
2004. The building of the Dakota Hawk
II soon began with the help of his flying
partners, members of the Experimental
Aviation Association, Chapter 66, in Fort
Myers. The last few years, Bob and his
partners were flying the Dakota Hawk II
out of the Charlotte County Airport and
at the same time building another air-
plane, the Celebrity Bi-Plane.
His interests and hobbies were many
and varied from building doll houses to
real houses; building model airplanes to
real airplanes; from his love for listening
to music to playing the violin; his pas-
sion for reading; and his keen interest
in sports from playing polo to golf and
always a #1 Yankee fan. Mostly, he will
be remembered for being the greatest
story teller ever.
His life was inspiration for those who
knew and loved him, leaving them mem-
ories of his life and love to cherish.
A mass will be celebrated on Saturday,
May 3 at 11 a.m. at St. Isabel Catholic
Church, 3559 Sanibel-Captiva Road,
Sanibel. A reception will follow. In lieu of
flowers, memorial contributions may be

18 ISLAND SUN -APRIL 11, 2014


Ray Rizzo, husband of Darlene
Rizzo, died at Lee Menorial
Health Park on March 31, 2014.
He was born on January 9, 1928
in Chicago, Illinois. He and his wife
Darlene lived in Periwinkle Park, where
his family mother Josephine Rizzo,
brother Joe Rizzo and Uncle Louis
Petroski have visited and lived for over
40 years. Darlene and Ray have been
year-round residents since1990.
Ray graduated from Lindblom High
School in Chicago, where he played vari-
ous varsity sports and was captain of the

football team his senior year. He also
played football at the University of Illinois
and went on to coach in youth leagues
in the Chicago area. One of his players,
Dennis Lick, went on to play for Ray's
favorite team: the Chicago Bears. Many
will remember Ray from watching foot-
ball with him at Doc Ford's, George and
Wendy's or the Lazy Flamingo.
When Ray went into the Army in
1946, they recognized his athletic and
leadership skills and made him an ath-
letic instructor. He served at William
Beaumont General Hospital in El Paso,
Texas where he supervised patient rehab
as well as organizing patient and person-
nel athletic leagues. He was also charged
with administering and evaluating physical
fitness tests for those seeking admission
to West Point. Ray retired in 1990 from
BMO Harris Bank in Chicago, where he
met his wife Darlene. His daughter Janet
is currently employed at the same bank.
On Sanibel, Ray, a member at The
Dunes, enjoyed sunny afternoons with
his wife and friends at the pool, floating
on his Chicago Bears orange and blue
Besides his wife Darlene, Ray is sur-
vived by his daughter Julie Walsh and her
children Kelly McWilliams (Shawn), and
her sons Brian Walsh and Dan Walsh; his
daughter Janet Pelegrino and her daugh-
ter Jessica; his brother Joe Rizzo (Marie);
and his sister Shirley Casalina (Dominic).
Services were held on April 4 in Fort
Myers, with Father Joseph Clifford pre-
siding. Family will also share a private
celebration of Ray's life later this month
on Sanibel.7

Stanley endured a predator attack
when he was an infant and CROW veteri-
narians had to amputate most of his tail.
Because of their disabilities, neither
animal could be released back into the
wild, so their caregivers have obtained
the necessary permits to display them
as animal ambassadors for educational

CROW Case Of The Week:
Tortoises And
Turtles Oh My!
S- by Patricia Molloy
n the United

and turtle are often
used interchange-
m N ably. There are
However, differ-
de fences between the
Let's begin with
the similarities. Each
is a reptile; i.e, a cold-blooded creature
that breathes air, has scales and lays eggs
on land. Additionally, they belong to the
order of reptiles known as chelonia -
from the Greek word "kelone" meaning
armor" which have a carapace (upper
shell) made of fused bone. There are
244 different species of chelonians in the
Okay. So how do they differ from one
another? The distinction comes primar-
ily from the habitat to which each is best
suited and the use of the terms varies in
different parts of the world. Here we will
focus on the U.S.
Tortoises are almost exclusively land-
dwellers that possess stubby feet, often
with sharp claws that are ideal for dig-
ging. As a result, they are not skilled

Gopher tortoises use their shovel-like front
feet and elephantine rear feet to dig burrows

Florida softshell turtles have a long snout
and their shells have a leathery surface
swimmers and could easily drown in deep
water or strong currents. As a resident or
frequent visitor to Sanibel, chances are
that you have seen at least one gopher
tortoise (pictured top left) attempting to
cross one of the island's roads.
Turtles can be semi-aquatic creatures
that despite being good swimmers

- spend most of their time basking on
land. Others live almost exclusively in the
water, like sea turtles, and only venture
onto land to lay their eggs. Turtles also
have either webbed feet or flippers. The
Florida softshell (pictured bottom left) is a
good example of a medium-size, native
turtle that is easy to identify.
Terrapin, as Dr. Heather noted, "is
really a British term that is not used much
in the U.S. except to refer to certain
types of turtles, such as the diamond-

back terrapin." They are often called
diamondbacks due to the raised rings on
their shells and are the only turtles on the
planet that reside exclusively in brackish,
or briny, water. Terrapins were hunted
nearly to extinction due to their popular-
ity as a food source and, while native to
Southwest Florida, they are not common-
ly seen. The large photo above is that of
patient #0399, a diamondback terrapin
currently receiving treatment at CROW.

New Ruling
On Lake 0
submitted by the Sanibel-Captiva
Conservation Foundation
n a landmark ruling on March 28,
U.S. District Judge Kenneth M. Karas
in the Southern District of New York
ruled that the practice of backpump-
ing polluted water from the Everglades
Agricultural Area into Lake Okeechobee
is a violation of the Clean Water Act.
The challenge, filed by Earthjustice in
2002, contended that the South Florida
Water Management District (SFWMD)
was violating the Clean Water Act by
allowing the agricultural companies to
send fertilizer-laden water into public
water supplies, without first requiring it be
Erecting a dike around Lake
Okeechobee was just the first step in
transforming the nation's second larg-
est, natural, freshwater lake into a res-
ervoir. The dike interrupted the natural,
gravity flow of water south out of the
Lake into the Everglades and enabled
the conversion of 700,000 acres of
historic Everglades into the Everglades
Agricultural Area (EAA). And changed the
future of south Florida.
First heralded for its "black gold," the
muck soils of the northern Everglades
provided tremendous conditions for grow-
ing winter vegetable crops in the dry

season. Today, the majority of land in the
EAA has been converted to sugar cane,
a year-round crop that thrives on organic
soils but needs drier soil conditions than
are naturally present in the historic
Everglades muck. So with the conversion
to sugar cane, producers expanded drain-
age operations to lower the water level
in the historic Everglades muck by 18
inches. And where did this pumped-down
natural groundwater go? It was pumped
uphill into Lake Okeechobee so that it
could be available for sugar producers to
use for irrigation during dry times. The
lake became a reservoir.
Two critical consequences resulted:
the backpumped water loaded with
excess nitrogen and phosphorus was
added to the lake ecosystem; and the
dried-out organic soils disappeared due to
subsidence, wildfires and oxidation. The
excess nutrient load caused algal blooms
and fed an explosion of exotic plants. As
the algae and plant matter dies, it falls
to the bottom of the lake and creates a
muck layer of organic material that steals
oxygen from the water that is needed by
fish and aquatic organisms. When that
muck layer gets stirred up during storms,
it once again releases the excess nutrients
- which causes another round of algal
blooms and reduces oxygen.
Of major concern to our local waters
is the fact that, when water is discharged
from the lake, the gates that release
the water open from the bottom. What
comes down the Caloosahatchee and St.
Lucie Rivers is not water from the top of
the Lake, it is the accumulated, polluted

muck sediments that wind up in our estu-
This water drawdown in the EAA is
simultaneously caused the loss of nine
feet of muck soil in the growing fields due
to wildfires and subsidence. And despite
these negative consequences, the practice
has been endorsed, codified and pro-
tected through permits and operational
protocols of the SFWMD.
As recently as 2012 during the
drought, the practice of backpumping
polluted water into the lake was heralded
as a solution for meeting Caloosahatchee
dry season and drought water supply
The SFWMD even appealed to the
Florida Legislature for $3.5 million to
build a new water treatment plant for
communities south of the lake because
according to their budget request, "Belle
Glade, Pahokee and South Bay use Lake
Okeechobee as a source of raw water
for drinking water. Lake Okeechobee
receives storm water inflows from major
agricultural areas ... and is heavily nutri-
ent enriched as well as highly colored,
having the potential for pesticide and
herbicide contamination. Organic material
in the water gives rise to trihalomethanes
(THM) in the water upon treatment with
Yet the District seems unconcerned
that this same polluted water and,
even worse, the polluted muck is being
released east and west where, in some
cases, it is also being used as drinking
So this important decision by the

ISLAND SUN APRIL 11, 2014 23
court, 11 years in the making, that pitted
Earthjustice, Friends of the Everglades,
Florida Wildlife Federation, Sierra Club
and the Miccosukee Tribe against the
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency,
SFWMD and the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers is, might we say, a sweet vic-
Our thanks and congratulations to
the groups that persevered. The case
ended up in New York because clean-
water groups and several states also
challenged the practice of allowing dirty
water transfers into public water supplies
without Clean Water Act protections. All
the cases were bundled together. You can

26 ISLAND SUN -APRIL 11, 2014
Bird's Eye View
Mad As H--- And
Not Going To
Take It Any More
rby Mark 'Bird'
rhe other day,
I I gave a little
Talk at the
Kiwanis' breakfast
_meeting. Of course,
Itried to convey the
idea of what it used
to mean to "coex-
ist" with the natural
system on Sanibel
when I first got here.
I told my story about my first experi-
ence with a "housekeeper" spider (wolf
spider) that locals allowed to live inside
their house to keep the palmetto bugs
away. And I also had to try to help my
audience understand that our local nest-
ing wading birds will not want to con-
tinue nesting on the island if we keep on
killing every alligator that scares them
and has a marketable hide.
But then during questions and
answers, someone asked me what I
thought was the greatest environmen-
tal threat to Sanibel these days and
how should we deal with it. I replied
quickly that, to me, the greatest danger
to Sanibel environmentally was all the
water, and the nutrients that comes with
it, the government keeps sending down

the Caloosahatchee and dumping right at
our doorstep. But in my typical fashion
of being easily distracted and going off
into another direction, I don't think I ever
provided a good solution for how we deal
with the issue.
So let me expand on that topic here
and now. I would like to quote a press
release that was recently sent out from
Earthjustice at the end of March. The
first part of it reads:
"Earthjustice wins 11-year legal
water pollution battle, March 28, 2014.
Tallahassee, FL A major decision in
federal court today will put an end to
government-sanctioned pollution that's
been fouling Lake Okeechobee for more
than three decades.
"The case, first filed in 2002 by
Earthjustice, challenged the practice of
"backpumping." For years, south Florida
sugar and vegetable growers have used
the public's waters, pumped out of Lake
Okeechobee, to irrigate their fields. They
wash the water over their industrial-sized
crops, where it is contaminated with
fertilizers and other pollutants. Then,
they get taxpayers in the South Florida
Water Management District to pay to
pump the contaminated water back into
Lake Okeechobee, where it pollutes
public drinking water. Lake Okeechobee
provides drinking water for West Palm
Beach, Fort Myers, and the entire lower
east coast metropolitan area.
"Earthjustice contended that the South
Florida Water Management District was
violating the Clean Water Act by allowing
the agricultural companies to send fertiliz-
er-laden water into public water supplies,

instead of cleaning it up first.
"U.S. District Judge Kenneth M.
Karas in the Southern District of New
York ruled that the water transfer does,
indeed, violate the Clean Water Act.
"The case ended up in New York
because clean-water groups and several
states also challenged the practice of
allowing dirty water transfers into public
water supplies without Clean Water Act
protections. All the cases including
Eartjustice's Florida case on behalf of
Friends of the Everglades, Florida Wildlife
Federation and the Sierra Club were
bundled together."
It boggles my mind that the govern-
ment water managers have been allowing
agricultural users to not only pollute our
waterways and drinking water but they
were even making us pay to pump the
dirty water back into our system.
In the movie Avatar, Sigourney
Weaver's character says once, "They're
p---ing on us and they don't even have
the courtesy to call it rain!"
So what should we here on Sanibel be
doing about it? I'm reminded of another
movie that came out years ago by the
name of Network, that had a TV news
commentator tell his audience to go over
and open their windows and yell into
the street, I'm mad as h--- and I'm not
going to take it any more!" We have to
start getting really mad at how the pow-
ers-that-be are treating the rest of us.
And I'm not just talking about the
government officials that run the Army
Corps of Engineers and the South
Florida Water Management District.
They're just the paid help and they're

only trying to keep the sugar people
happy because they want to keep their
jobs. I've said many times in the past,
if you are a water manager in south
Florida, you are going to listen to the
wishes of the sugar people because they
have lots of power and influence with
And how is it they have all that
power and influence, you ask? They
have it because this country does not like
Castro's politics in Cuba, so Congress
gives billions of dollars in subsidies every
year to the sugar growers so they can
produce cheaper sugar than Castro
can. And like a lot of federal subsidy
programs, there is always a little extra
money left over and the sugar people
make sure that the surplus makes its way
back into the politicians' election cam-
paign funds.
That's why the politicians, both fed-
eral and state, seem to listen to the sugar
people more than to us. And in the case
of the Earthjustice press release, it wasn't
even that the politicians tried to do the
right thing; our court system had to tell
them that what was happening was
But we do live in a democracy and if
we get mad enough and serious enough,
we have the power to let the politicians
know that they could lose their jobs over
this issue. This winter, I saw some pro-
testers in front of Bailey's Store demand-
ing that President Obama be impeached.
Everyone around here seems to be really
upset because the President has pushed

Get Ready For
Some Of Best
Fishing Of Year
by Capt. Matt
he first week
of April
brought us
our first real taste
of spring conditions
this year. With
light winds and
quickly warming
water tempera-
tures, it's amazing
how fast the sound rebounded back to
life. Feeding birds, bait and hungry fish
out on the open flats were found all
throughout the bay.
After a windy and rainy March, the
water in the sound has finally begun to
clear up with some of the best visibility
we have seen in months. Add to that
near perfect air temperatures and there is
not a much better time to be out on the

water. After what seemed like a never-
ending series of winter cold fronts, fishing
is now on the upswing with some of the
best action of the year about to begin in
the next few weeks.
After a lull in tarpon sightings this past
last few weeks because of cool water tem-
peratures brought on by late season cold
fronts, these last few days I am happy
to report I have seen a few free-jumping
and rolling tarpon in the northern sound.
This is always an exciting time of year
for anglers who are often fanatical when
it comes to tarpon fishing. By the end of
the month, our tarpon fishing will be in
full swing out on the beaches and in the
sound. For me, this cannot come soon
enough as hunting these hard-fighting fish
is my favorite fishing of the year. If you
have never caught a tarpon, it's hard to
understand what anglers refer to as "tar-
pon fever." It's addictive, to say the least.
The first tarpon of the year are usu-
ally caught out between Sanibel and Fort
Myers Beach in the 30-foot deep range
by anglers fishing cut bait on the bottom.
This area is often referred to as the tar-
pon triangle. As our water temperature
rises, these fish begin to stage up in huge

numbers before making the move down
the beaches and through the sound.
Look for the first tarpon in the bay to be
caught around the deep water holes by
Marker 4 and Marker 18. I have been
seeing more and more boats anchored
up in these places daily as every tarpon
angler wants that first prized fish of the
Big afternoon high tides this week
looked like the perfect redfish set up.
Some days redfish action was on fire then
the next day it seemed almost impossible
to catch one. While fishing with Art and
Sam Coffey from Indiana this week, we

experienced the highs and lows of redfish
fishing. One afternoon for roughly an
hour, just about every well-placed cast
produced a redfish measuring between
25 and 28 inches. After a couple of
double hook-ups, the mangrove redfish
bite was about as good as it gets.
Fast forward a few days on the same
tide pattern and we made our first stop of
the trip immediately hooking two redfish,
after landing one of the two fish, a near
perfect 26 1/2-incher, we fished almost
another three hours going shoreline to
shoreline without as much as another bite.

how author Kevin Hansen
describes Lynx rufus in his
book of the same name. While
other wild feline species are
in trouble, bobcats seem to be
flourishing through most of their
North American range. No one
knows how many bobcats there
are on Sanibel and Captiva but
according to the book this adapt-
able feline's ability to survive close
to humans is one of the reasons
for its success. Rats and mice can
make up to 40 percent of the Mother and baby bobcat
bobcat's diet.
To learn more about the biology and society of this shy feline that moves so peace-
fully among us, the public is invited to attend Bobcat Tales on Wednesday, April 16
at 10 a.m in the SCCF auditorium. Cost of the program is $5 per adult, with SCCF
members and children attending for free.

Peek Fundraiser
submitted by Sue Denham
A Peek at the Unique, the signature
fundraiser for the Zonta Club
of Sanibel-Captiva, wrapped up
around 6 p.m. March 15 poised for
record-breaking results. From the 98
volunteers on the day to 608 tour tick-
ets sold, all the numbers topped previ-
ous successes. With a few pledges yet to
come in, preliminary figures show the
net for the event will be over $100,000
for the first time.
"We had wonderful support from
island individuals and from the business
community, with 160 businesses purchas-
ing ads in the program, sponsoring Peek
Perks coupons, or providing support in
other ways such as donating in-kind items
and services," said Zontian Jan Alden,
who co-chaired the event with Helen
"We are all so grateful for this gener-
ous affirmation of an event that will help
many women in direct ways," she said.
The majority of funds raised will be
distributed through the club's non-profit,
the Zonta Foundation of Southwest
Florida, in grants to local organizations
with programs that improve women's
lives, and the remainder to Zonta

International for its global initiatives.
The home tour, now in its 13th year,
has expanded and grown over the years
and is now a recognized treat for island-
ers, visitors and winter residents. Tickets
go fast when they go on sale each
January. To be added to the early-bird

cast in depths of four to six feet. Trout,
Spanish mackerel, jacks and ladyfish fed
basically non-stop, taking just about every
bait we cast out. Saving a few of these
ladyfish and fishing them as cut bait in
these same area resulted in lots of black .......
tip sharks in the three-foot range. Look
for this action to just get better and better
over the next few weeks..
It sure feels good to know we made it
through another Florida winter. For some
reason, this winter just seemed like tough-
er fishing than in the past few years.
Constantly changing wind and weather
had a big part in that. Now that spring
is here, fishing is quickly get a whole lot
better no matter what species you choose
to target. Bill and Gracie Martin

Historic Movie

Night On Captiva
The Captiva Island Historical
Society (CIHS) will release a fourth
DVD in the oral histories series.
The video will be shown Tuesday, April
15 at 7:30 p.m. in the newly renovated
Captiva Community Center on Chapin
CIHS commissioned filmmaker, Rusty
Farst, to produce Captiva Memories:
Artists & Authors. A most ambitious
project, this historic film captures the
spirit of Captiva and its meaning to four
significant world class artists and writers:
Robert Rauschenberg, Anne Morrow
Lindbergh, Maybelle Stamper and J.N.
"Ding" Darling.
Farst recorded and edited invalu-
able stories told by several relatives and
friends of these four artists and authors.
He traveled to New York to interview
Chris Rauschenberg, son of artist Robert
Rauschenberg. Chris said that his father
called Captiva "home" for over 30 years.
Sarita Van Vleck, long time Captiva
resident, tells how her father bought the
property from 'Ding' Darling and then
sold it to Robert Rauschenberg with a
conservation clause attached to the deed.
Insight by son Chris and moving stories

by Kat Eppel (composer) and Laurence
Voytek (sculptor) bring back memories
of a unique and special period when
Rauschenberg created innovative "com-
binations" along with working in other
art mediums right here on Captiva in his
state-of-the-art studio.
Farst went to Vermont and met Reeve
Lindbergh, daughter of Charles and Anne
Morrow Lindbergh, both of whom came
to Captiva. Charles came to visit and
Anne came to find solitude and her own
voice through her writing. Reeve tells sto-
ries of her mother, and reminisces about
the special little book, Gift from The
Sea, written in the 1950s and inspired by
Pam Schmidt, personal assistant to
Robert Rauschenberg, recalls stories of
Maybelle Stamper, modern artist and
lithographer, who lived and worked
on Captiva for over 50 years. Dottie
Wakefield, daughter of Bowman and
Grace Price (who owned Tween Waters
Inn) shares a wonderful story about the
time Maybelle painted her portrait in the
Farst went to Florida's east coast to
interview and film Kip Koss, the grandson
of J.N. "Ding" Darling. Kip recalls his
grandfather's contribution to the conser-
vation movement and the establishment
of the refuge on Sanibel. Tony Lapi,

CEO, president, and owner of Tween
Waters, leads a tour of the property and
visits the Darling Cottage and Studio.
These unique stories told first hand will
be treasured for years to come. The inter-
views with Dorothy Wakefield and Kip
Koss took place before they both passed
away earlier this year. This special collec-
tion of oral histories will make you smile
and bring you even closer to Captiva.
The Captiva Island Historical Society
evolved from The Captiva History
Project, founded in 2010 by Stella
Farwell. Initially established in 2011,

plays which were frequently sponsored by
Franciscans who advocated popularizing
scriptural events.
The Way of the Cross calls for no
speaking parts. Through the use of spe-
cial lighting, inspirational music, drama,
and soul-searching meditations, a person
is able to get in touch with themselves;
their goodness, struggles and their sins.
Then, in a unique way, it becomes a
prayerful vehicle for the Lord's spirit to
forgive, heal and renew.
It is an event you can experience over

Cell Tower To
Become Active
By End Of April
by Jeff Lysiak
cellular phone reception for both
Verizon and AT&T mobile cus-
tomers on the island is expected
to improve substantially before the end
of this month, after representatives
from the telecommunications carriers
announced that Sanibel's new cell tower
is in the process of being activated.
At last week's city council meeting,
City Manager Judie Zimomra reported
that Verizon Wireless engineers planned
on activating the 149-foot cell tower
"within the next two to four weeks." On
Tuesday, council liaison Doug Congress
confirmed that report to the planning
During discussions about the cell
tower, located on Donax Street and built
to resemble a flag pole, planning director
Jimmy Jordan also said that representa-
tives from AT&T have been in contact
with Verizon Wireless regarding activating
their antenna, but that they "haven't fin-
ished their negotiations."
Commissioner Dr. Phillip Marks
inquired about whether other cellular
service carriers including Sprint might
also add an antenna to the tower. Jordan
said that he was not aware of any addi-
tional carriers for the tower.

To State Capitol
s member of the board of direc-
tors for the Florida League of
Mayors, Sanibel Mayor Kevin
Ruane traveled to the state capital,
Tallahassee, to discuss Sanibel's top pri-
ority of water quality as well as legisla-
tion which may impact home rule.
The Florida League of Mayors is the
official nonpartisan organization of may-

for large parking lots.
The guidelines also include suggested
standards for width, surface materials,
vertical clearance, number, location, drive-
way separation, obstructions, visibility,
pedestrian and bicycle lanes, line of sight,
design, lighting, drainage, signage cover-
age and developed areas.
The draft ordinance does not contain
the proposed Cross Access Agreement
form, which would have required owners
of adjoining properties wishing to enter
into a perpetual easement, along with
maintenance and mutual indemnities. The
agreement was removed by commission-
ers at the March 11 meeting after a brief
"For all properties that are joined
together via an Intraconnection path
are required to establish a cross access
agreement between them," the submit-
ted document reads. "The cross access
agreement between the properties must
contain provisions for the maintenance of
the intraconnection path and be recorded
with the Lee County Clerk of Court."
The draft also includes a new condi-
tion, which reads, "City council may
adopt and, from time to time, amend an
illustrated guide of interconnectivity and
intraconnectivity guidelines to aid in the
administration and interpretation of the
above standards." Commissioners had
requested a one-year "look-back" of the
guidelines, to determine if changes or
alterations need to be made.
Part of their April 8 consent agenda,
commissioners approved the draft ordi-
nance unanimously, 7-0.5

to the present and everything in between!

TRUST COMPANY Starfish-* Grille

Grandpa McKee, visiting from Columbia, South Carolina, reads to his grandchildren
Jessica and Jordan in one of the new Read2Me chairs at the Sanibel Public Library.
Looking on are Les Boyle, President of the Sanibel-Captiva Kiwanis Club, Library
Commissioner Sandy Zahorchak and Youth Librarian Barb Dunkle.
s there a more rewarding activity than curling up with your child and reading
aloud from a favorite book?
Thanks to a grant from the Sanibel-Captiva Kiwanis Club, people can do just that
at the Sanibel Public Library Children's Room. The Kiwanis provided funding for two
new Read2Me chairs, designed especially for reading aloud to children.
"One of my favorite images is of my mother and young son sitting together in
a chair for hours and hours reading together," said Library Commissioner Sandy
Zahorchak. "She would read him many stories, and he developed a great love of read-
ing and of books because of that."
Studies show that reading aloud is the single most important thing you can do to
help a child prepare for reading and learning. Reading aloud helps young children with
brain and language development; it helps with vocabulary, phonics, comprehension
and familiarity with the printed word.
"From birth to age 3 are critical years in the development of language skills,"
according to Youth Librarian Barb Dunkle. "We are grateful to the Kiwanis for provid-
ing these chairs so we can support reading aloud more comfortably."
San-Cap Kiwanis President Les Boyle said the club is happy to do this.
"We support children and children's activities," added Boyle. "This kind of support
for reading and for the children of Sanibel makes perfect sense to us."
Funding for the Read2Me chairs was made available by the Sanibel-Captiva Kiwanis
Club through the Joan Hunt Cory Children's Fund of the Sanibel Public Library

Monday Night Movie
0-le r by Di Saggau
*" '"f he BIG ARTS
.. movie for
SMonday April
14 is Sister, about
Simon (Kacey
Moffet Klein) who
lives with his older
sister (Lea Seydoux)
in a housing com-
plex below a luxury
Swiss ski resort.
Simon is 12 and he supports himself
and his apathetic, defeated older sister
by stealing ski equipment from rich folks
up at a fancy Alpine ski resort. He then
makes his way down the mountain to
fence the stuff.
The high-low setting effectively rein-
forces the emotional geography of both
lost souls. He is able to keep their little
family afloat with his small-time hustles
and his sister is thankful for the money he
brings in. But when Simon partners with
a crooked British seasonal worker, he
begins to lose his boundaries, affecting his
relationship with his sister and plummet-
ing him into dangerous territory.
Gillian Anderson makes a brief, well-
placed appearance as one of the rich.
The film won a Special Mention Silver
Bear award at this year's Berlin Film
Festival. It examines the coming-of-age
process and the challenges that face us as
we arrive at adulthood.


Sister is as bleak and as beautiful as its
snowy mountainous setting. It is thought-
provoking and heartrending, a story of
hope and hopelessness in equal measure,
a commentary on growing up and learn-
ing your place in the world. It runs 97

The Committee of the Islands was
founded 39 years ago as an outcome
of the effort to incorporate Sanibel as
an independent city to protect it from
overdevelopment by the county. Through
the years COTI has continued to work to
protect the island from overdevelopment,
and to defend the Sanibel Plan.
COTI works with other organizations,

individual citizens, and the City govern-
to help advance its mission. Here are
some of its accomplishments in this ongo-
ing effort:
Wrote and successfully sponsored the
"People's Choice" charter amendments,
which prevent any weakening of
Sanibel's most basic land code protec-
tions without
voter approval.
Opposed creation of a major resort
and shopping complex at Periwinkle and

City acquired the tract, which is now

Two retiring directors were acknowl-
edged for their years of service in help-
ing CROW through the realization of

and Visitors Education Center. Dr. Paul
Douglass served three, three-year terms
for a total of nine years of distinguished

service to CROW. He established a fund
at the Southwest Florida Community
Foundation in honor of his late wife,
Phyllis. Wayne Boyd served as a board
member for four, three-year terms plus
an additional year totaling 13 years of
dedicated service; and was involved with
facilities, buildings and grounds. He spear-
headed the Boyd Challenge Grant during
a critical time for the organization. Both
men have contributed years of service

the foundation upon which the organiza-
tion could succeed.
Congress spoke about the evolution
of CROW and significant achievements
of the year including CROW's Strategic
Plan. Seldess presented the 2013 finan-
cial report and highlighted key opera-
tional areas. In all, 2013 was a positive

the educational programs, the marvel-
ous work done by the volunteers and
CROW's work in community outreach.

addressed the improvements in patient
care and release rates. In 2013, 3,391

were critically injured adults. Over 263
surgeries were performed and 107
patients presented with hook-and-line
related injuries, a 25 percent increase
over last year. CROW's educational pro-
grams grew by nine percent in 2013 and
included students from leading colleges
and universities around the world.

Southwest Florida, comprising 10 teams from as far afield as Naples and North Fort
Helmut Peters, captain of the Beachview team, was one of the founders of this new
league two years ago.
"There are no restrictions other than that the players have to be at least 50 years
old and of 4.0 standard or over," he said. "With no other restrictions, tennis profes-
sionals are able to play in this league, and in fact a past world champion has partici-
pated on one of the teams."
Mark Andrews, co-captain of Beachview, said, "The strength of the league and
the camaraderie of the players has attracted a lot of attention, and it has grown from
seven teams in the first year to 10 teams this year. After 18 matches, Beachview came
out at the top of the league winning 13, tying four and losing only one match. This
was a real good team effort."
Matches are played on a home and away basis. The league starts in November and
ends in March and matches are played every Friday afternoon. Each team consists of
four mens doubles teams.
Any tennis player of +4.0 Standard, over 50 years old, interested in playing on this
team next season may contact Toni Halski, director of tennis, at 472-9099.
Toni Halski will receive the SWFTT Traveling Trophy at a prize-giving function at
The Landings on Friday, April 4, together with the rest of the Beachview team.^

Sanibel Island Golf Club
Men Scramble Into April

Phil Pilibosian, Roger Cogswell and Chuck Bye
On Saturday April 5, the Sanibel Island Golf Club Men's League played a
regular scramble as they do on the first Saturday of each month. Adjusted
handicaps were subtracted for each team after scores were turned in.
The winners were a threesome (most of the teams were foursomes), which is
amazing but their story is even more amazing. Chuck Bye, Phil Pilibosian and Roger
Cogswell turned in the low score of 51. Bye and Philibosian had to supply all the fire
power because Cogswell had just had an eye operation and could only putt doctors
orders! They had nine birdies and nine pars and were on almost every green in regu-
Chuck Bye said it was his best round of the year. Cogswell's one-eyed putting was
terrific once they were on the green.
There was a tie for second and third place with two foursomes shooting 55s. A
score card playoff determined that Bjorn Olsson, Jim Sauer, Jerry Mader and Dick
Arnould were awarded second place. The foursome of Fred Zimmer, Dan Keys, Bill
Sadd and Dick Chocol took third.

As Wrigley Field Reaches Its Century,
Cubs' 106-Year Famine Continues
by Ed Frank
t's called a season-long centennial party. For long-suffering
SChicago Cubs fans, however, it's a walk down memory lane
g mow las historic, crumbling Wrigley Field reaches its 100th birth-
OOnly Boston's Fenway Park is older than Wrigley, but while
Red Sox fans have celebrated three World Series championships
Sy in the last 10 years, Cubs fans have waited 106 years that's
right, six years longer than Wrigley's age for a Series title.
And that century-long drought is almost certain to continue.
__ Despite the on-field, year-after-year misery of the Cubs,
Wrigley Field has remained the fan favorite for generations. It's
the No. 1 visitors' attraction in the Windy City, and every true baseball fan will put a
visit to Wrigley atop their bucket list.
To write a 100-year history of Wrigley Field would consume volumes. Its setting, its
ivy-covered outfield walls, the bars and restaurants that ring the stadium, its closeness
to Lake Michigan, all of these attributes and many more, play significant roles in why
Wrigley Field is so popular.
But the fact is it's an aging structure (steel netting protects fans from falling con-
crete), and it lacks the modern-day amenities found in today's ballparks.
The Ricketts Family that bought the Cubs five years ago from the Chicago Tribune
have proposed a $300 million updating of Wrigley, but those plans have been stymied

Sanibel On Road
For Minors Division
Baseball Games
anibel's first ever minors division
baseball teams traveled to Naples
to play against three top Naples
teams this past Saturday. Sanibel teams
won 1, lost 1 and tied 1.
In the opening game, Sanibel Blue
(2-1) beat Naples Raptors 8-3 behind
solid pitching from the Book of Matthew
Ciccone (1-0) and Chase Me Around in
Circles Johnson (S, 1). Kaden Taylor-
Made Double Play hit key a key triple
to drive in 3 runs (2-3, 5 RBI). Jackson
Hole, Wyoming McKee began a double
play in the final inning to thwart Naples
from rallying. All Riley-ed Up Johnson
scored three times after reaching base
every time at the plate (2 BB; 1 HBP).
In the second game, Sanibel com-
bined Sanibel White and Sanibel Blue in
a pickup lineup without practice. Naples
Bulldogs, reputedly the top team in
Collier County, took advantage of the
untested lineup. Sanibel Combined (0-3)
lost 13-3. Kaden Taylor-Made Double
Play took his second loss on the season
(1-2) after a stellar start the prior weekend
versus the Cape Coral Yankees. Daniel
"Leaving on a Jet Plane" Peter, Paul
and Mary (1-1) cracked a double to deep
centerfield, Roll Tye Phoenix (1-2, 1 R)
had a base hit, and Chase Me Around in
Circles Johnson (0-1, 1 R, 1 BB) stole
two bases in the cause.
The third game was exciting through-
out. Sanibel White (1-1-1) couldn't hold

Ryan Dunavant slides home
a 4-run lead in the final inning, but out-
hit the Naples Cubs 7-5 to finish with a
10-10 tie in an action packed game. Tye
a Yellow Ribbon Around the Old Oak
Tree Phoenix (2-3, 1 RBI, 2 R) tripled
in the first inning with a deep fly ball to
right and reached based on each at bat.

Gulf of Aidan Donovan (1-2, 2 RBI, 1
R) hit a line drive double to center in the
3rd. Ryan Now You Are Dunavant (1-2,
2 RBI, 2 R, 1 HBP) was solid at the plate
and in the field. Safe Haven Elias-Branca
(1-1, 1 RBI, 1 R) picked up his first
hit. Sister Christian "Oh the Time Has

Come" Menzel (1-1, 2 BB) scored twice.
Daniel "Leaving on a Jet Plane" Peter,
Paul and Mary (2 H, 3 BB, 1 ER) made
his pitching debut to be remembered with
two innings of work, including four strike-
outs. Phoenix threw out a would-be thief
to Donovan who applied the tag at third
to end the Cubs' 2nd inning rally.
Sanibel last faced Naples two years
ago in a Cal Ripken 12U All-Stars
District Championship Tournament in
Bradenton, Florida. The Naples All-Stars
beat the Sanibel All-Stars 28-0 in two 2
innings, with the Naples team letting up
considerably against overmatched Sanibel
(playing in its first ever sanctioned All-Star
Sanibel White Coach Anthony Aracri
explained, "Look, the air is thinner that
far north. You might give up 42 runs in
that weather and lose 26-0. It can hap-
pen nothing to be embarrassed about."
Aracri paused a bit, inhaled air in an odd
manner, and then exclaimed, "Look how
far we've come, baby! Now when we
give up 26 runs in a day to Naples, we
take 22 back. One, one and one we
won, baby! It has nothing to do with the
air! This ain't 2012, it's 2014!"
Sanibel is also standing at 1-3 against
the Cape Coral Yankees after two high-
octane doubleheaders. In the first double-
header, the teams scored a combined 53
runs, with Cape Coral holding a 31-22
advantage and taking both exciting
In the second doubleheader, Sanibel
improved to outscore Cape Coral 19-17
and split the doubleheader.,

never go as
planned. Our
guest speaker recruit-
ers do a terrific job of
filling up the calendar
with outstanding
speakers and usually
all goes well. But every once in a while,
a speaker has to cancel or we have
to reschedule a speaker for another
reason. When that happens, it really is
astounding that somehow, somewhere,
our speaker recruiter can find someone
to step in and do a terrific job, even at
the last minute.
Rotarian and PP John Bellino had
to do just that recently, and luckily had
someone interesting in mind that might
just be willing to come and talk to us
about an organization that our speaker
was instrumental in starting. David
Zammitt is the chairman of Community
Blueprint, a non-governmental organiza-
tion that solely focuses on finding support
for military veterans and their families
after discharge from active duty and tran-
sitioning into civilian life.

Wrigley's history goes far beyond base-
ball. The Friendly Confines was home
to the Chicago Bears from 1921 to
1970 where they won eight champion-
ships. Wrestling, boxing, college football,
Globetrotters basketball, soccer, and con-
certs all have been held there.
The legendary Sam Snead once hit
the centerfield scoreboard with a 4-iron
from home plate on an opening day, and
in 1944, ski jumpers skied down a track
that started in the upper deck behind
home plate and landed near second base.
But baseball and Wrigley are syn-
onymous. Baseball wouldn't be baseball
without Wrigley. Perhaps, just per-
haps, the second century of its life will

Zammitt told us that records indicate
that many of our servicemen and women
entered the military at a very young age,
with limited education and in many
cases without any employment experi-
ence. During their service time, they
are definitely trained for their military
jobs, but that type of training often does
not prepare them for re-entrance into
the civilian job market. They have been

than likely four years of service with two
deployment periods, seen and experi-
enced the brutality of war up close and
personal. They are hardly prepared to
just stop their combat-ready mentality and
just re-enter their lives at home without
some transitioning concerns and some
adjustment problems. Although the gov-
ernment has some help for returning vet-
erans, there still is a gap in programming.
The Community Blueprint program wants
to find a way to help local leaders assess
and improve their community's support
for veterans, warriors and their families.
Community Blueprint focuses on
eight areas for transitioning: behavioral
health, education, employment, family
strength, financial/legal services, home-
lessness, reintegration and volunteerism.
Community involvement is key here,
including getting business leaders to join
this effort to reintegrate our returning
veterans back to active and healthy pro-
ductive citizens. "We thank you for your
service" is wonderful for the veterans to
hear, but that is not enough. The best
way we can thank them is to help them
when they need us.
Originally, Community Blueprint set
up three pilot programs to fine-tune the
methodology for identifying and provid-
ing specific course of actions that com-
munity leaders could take in identifying a

broad range of resources available within
their communities and set up individual
programs for each veteran and his/her
family to take advantage of. The first pilot
program in 2011 was located in Valdosta,
Georgia (right outside of Moody Air Force
Base), where Zammitt was living at the
time. Joined by the local Military Officers
Association of America chapter, this pro-
gram was so effective that it has now 53
community sites.
Veterans themselves have identified
areas of concern with: family relation-
ships, frequent irritability and anger,
problems re-entering civilian life, post
traumatic syndrome (PTS), alcohol/drugs,
depression and aggression. Government
programs are helping, but their weak
spot is in training and employment. That
is where Community Blueprint can be the
most helpful. They are trying to use com-
munity leadership in finding or initiating
programs to fill in this gap and putting
our veterans back to work. Community
Blueprint's goal is to coordinate services
between government, non-profits and
community and help our veterans.

Everblades Playoff Hopes Fade
For the first time in the 14-year fran-
chise history of the Florida Everblades,
the local hockey team may fail to reach
the post-season playoffs.
By losing two of three games last
week to South Carolina, including a 3-2
heartbreaker last Sunday at Germain
Arena, they left Greenville and Wheeling
to clinch playoff spots in the American
Conference of the ECHL.
In order to grab the last playoff slot,
the Everblades must win their final three
games and Fort Wayne would need to
lose their remaining two games against
Evansville and Toledo.
The Everblades close out the regu-
lar season this week hosting Reading
Wednesday and Friday nights at Germain
and the season finale Sunday at Germain.

The CCA was founded in 1936 at
the old Fisherman's Lodge to foster road

the Captiva Chapel by the Sea. A decade
later, it moved into an adjacent part of
the one-engine fire house built on the
existing site of the CCA.

landscaped patio and veranda that
allowed visitors to mingle outdoors.
"Before the renovation, when they
had an event outdoors, it was just grass,
and anyone in heels sunk in the ground
about four inches," said Sue Sherlock.
"It's so pleasant to be outside and the
way they designed it, the patio and lanai
really connect to the main room indoors."
She added, "I talked to several people
here, and they thought the building was
phenomenal. They couldn't believe the
change in the building from before the
renovation and after."
The building's debut and CCA Spring
Social also doubled as the organization's
first general meeting in its renovated facility.
CCA President Rich Stegmann told
the members that the project, originally
estimated to cost about $800,000, had
gone considerably over budget as workers

discovered numerous structural problems
with the facility as they tore away layers
of its interior and exterior. He said about
$880,000 has been raised to date, but
warned that considerably more money
needs to be raised to pay for a project
that is expected to exceed $1.2 million.
"I don't want to be the first president
since Jack Cunningham (his immediate
predecessor) to leave this office with a
debt," he joked, as he urged the com-
munity to "step up to the plate" and raise
the additional money needed. Stegmann
praised CCA Executive Director Paul
Garvey for his oversight of the proj-
ect, and CCA Board Member Sally
Rheinfrank for her fundraising efforts.
All of the funds for the renovation
have come from member donations.
No public tax money has been used for
the project even though the Captiva

public library and deputy residence.

longtime islander and owner of the property on which
the restaurant sits. Jimmy always made time for a
good conversation, good company and great food. In

Realtor Honored
E/MAX International representative Teri Blanco presented Chuck Bergstrom
with the coveted RE/MAX Above The Crowd award on behalf of RE/MAX
International at a sales meeting last week. The award was presented to only
three of the over 5,000 Florida RE/MAX sales associates and is given to those indi-
viduals that not only epitomize professionalism in their real estate business, but also
give back to the community.
Originally from Chicago, Bergstrom's previous career included a background in
accounting and finance where he was self-employed in Chicago's financial district.
Bergstrom became a Sanibel resident and full time realtor in 2000 after visiting the

My Stars ****
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Professional
relationships grow stronger. But you might still
need to ease some problems with someone in
your personal life. One way could be to try to
be less rigid in your views.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You might
be too close to that perplexing personal situa-
tion to even attempt to make a rational decision
about it right now. Stepping back could help
you gain a wider perspective.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Being asked
to choose between the positions of two friends
is an unfair imposition on you. It's best to reject
the "demands" and insist they try harder to
work things out on their own.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A change
of mind about a workplace decision might be
called for once you hear more arguments, pro
and con. A personal event suddenly takes an
unexpected (but pleasant!) turn.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) Romance once
again looms large for single Leos and Leonas,
with Cupid favoring Taurus and Libra to inspire
those warm and fuzzy Leonine feelings. Expect
another workplace change.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A
surprise gift -- and, happily, with no strings
attached -- could come just when you need it
to avoid a delay in getting your project done.
Expect education to dominate the week.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22)
Someone close to you might ask for your sup-
port as she or he faces a demanding personal
challenge. Offer it, by all means. But be careful
you don't neglect your own needs at this time.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) An
unexpected development could put your rela-

tionship with a partner or spouse to an emotion-
ally demanding test. But your determination to
get to the truth should save the day.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to
December 21)A recent agreement appears to be
coming apart over the surfacing of unexpected
complications. You might need to have expert
advice on how to resolve the situation.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19)
Your keen business sense helps you get to the
truth about a suspicious business deal. Expect
to have many colleagues rally to support your
efforts in this important matter.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18)
Someone who once moved in and out of your
life through the years might now want to come
back in on a more permanent basis. Give your-
self a lot of time to weigh your decision.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20)
Showing frustration over a delayed workplace
decision might get someone's attention, but not
necessarily make him or her move any sooner.
Best advice would be to be patient and wait it
BORN THIS WEEK: You are drawn to
excitement and enjoy fast-tempo music, with
the more brass, the better.

OnApril 14, 1912, the RMS Titanic fails
to divert its course from an iceberg, ruptures its
hull and begins to sink. The Titanic was divided
into 16 compartments that were presumed to be
watertight. Because four of these compartments
could be flooded without loss of buoyancy, the
Titanic was considered unsinkable.
OnApril 20, 1923, Tito Puente, the
bandleader and percussionist who helped popu-
larize Latin dance music in America, is born in
New York City. During a career that spanned

six decades, "El Rey" (The King), recorded
more than 100 albums and won five Grammy
On April 16, 1947, multimillionaire and
financier Bernard Baruch first coins the term
"Cold War" to describe relations between the
United States and the Soviet Union, a war with-
out fighting or bloodshed, but a battle nonethe-
OnApril 15, 1959, Fidel Castro visits the
United States. The trip got off to an inauspi-
cious start when it became clear that President
Dwight Eisenhower had no intention of meeting
with Castro. Instead, Eisenhower went to the
golf course to avoid any chance meeting.
OnApril 17, 1960, Eddie Cochran, the
musician behind "Summertime Blues" and other
rockabilly hits, is killed when the taxi carrying
him from a show in Bristol, England, crashes en
route to the airport in London, where he was to
catch a flight home to the U.S. He was 21.
OnApril 19, 1971, as a prelude to a mas-
sive antiwar protest that would include 200,000
demonstrators, Vietnam Veterans Against
the War begin a five-day demonstration in
Washington, D.C. The generally peaceful pro-
test ended on April 23 with about 1,000 veter-
ans throwing their combat ribbons, helmets and
uniforms on the Capitol steps, along with toy
OnApril 18, 1989, thousands of Chinese
students continue to take to the streets in Beijing
to protest government policies. The protests
grew until the Chinese government ruthlessly
suppressed them in June, killing thousands, dur-
ing what came to be known as the Tiananmen
Square Massacre.

It was beloved and sometimes maligned

British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill
who made the following sage observation:
"Sometimes it is not enough that we do our
best; we must do what is required."
If you're of a certain age, you might be sur-
prised to learn that the Bruce Willis film "Die
Hard" is older than the World Wide Web.
Those who study such things say that a new
mom accumulates anywhere from 450 to 700
hours of lost sleep during the first year after her
baby is born.
You may be surprised to learn that the aver-
age American man spends 10,585 hours hang-
ing out in a bar. Or you may not.
Those who are looking for love might want
to consider the following statistics: In a 2013
survey, a quarter of adults said that their spouse/
partner is not the type of person they thought
they'd settle down with. More than half of
respondents said that their significant other is
their complete opposite.
If you just can't seem to resist shouting
sometimes, you may suffer from klazomania.
Nobel and Pulitzer prize-winning author
John Steinbeck did not start out his career as
a great success. In fact, his first novel, "Cup
of Gold," was a complete flop, not even earn-
ing enough money to cover the advance the
publishing house paid him. He was not discour-
aged, however; after the book's publication
Steinbeck wrote to a friend, "The book was an
immature experiment. ... The next one won't
be good, nor the next one, but about the fifth, I
think I will be above the average."
Even a chameleon that is born blind can
take on the colors of its environment.

School Smart
by Shelley M.
Greggs, NCSP

I My pre-
school age son
.- is struggling with
coloring, drawing
and writing. He still
doesn't hold his
pencil correctly or
press down hard.
What can I do for him?
Lucy F, Sanibel, Florida
Learning how to write is a process and
has stages just as learning to speak does.
Young children progress through stages,
from looking at letters on the page of a
book during infancy to producing those
letters beginning in the preschool years.
Learning how write properly is a devel-
opmental milestone and it is important to
remember that, as with all developmental
milestones, achievements are expected to
occur within a broad range of ages, not
at a specific time.
Typically by age four, a child will
have progressed through several types
of grasps while scribbling and drawing,
from the fist or power grasp to a more
developed grasp like the tripod grasp.
Kids usually develop this grasp between
the ages of four and six and boys typically
develop this later than girls. A less mature
grip and light pressure can be a sign of

muscle weakness in the wrist and fingers,
the very muscles needed for writing.
The best way to help a child who
hasn't mastered this grasp and who needs
further development of the muscles used
for fine motor activities is though a fun
and games approach. There are so many
activities for children that help to develop
these muscles, such as lacing toys, build-
ing blocks, wind-up toys, cutting paper
with safety scissors, construction games
such as Legos or Tinker toys and tweezer
type activities. Play involving modeling or
play clay is also an excellent way to pro-
mote finger and wrist strength.
By showing a child how to make dif-
ferent shades of color from the same
crayon or pencil you can help them learn
to exert more pressure or reduce pressure
on the writing tool depending on what
effect your child wants to make. You can
demonstrate by shading lightly, shading
with more pressure, and then shading
with a lot of pressure to show how the
color changes. Ask your child to identify
which shade goes with which amount of
pressure and then have him try to create
the different shades when coloring.
Triangular crayons are a great way to
promote a mature grasp, they are gener-
ally thicker than regular crayons and their
triangular shape creates a surface on
which to place each finger. There are also
triangular grips you can purchase to put
on pencils and crayons to help your child
learn how to grasp properly.
Remember, have fun with these activi-
ties. Learning to write should not be a
stressful experience for your child. If your

child isn't having fun with these games or
if no progress is made despite having fun,
you may want to discuss his development
with your doctor to see if a referral to an
occupational therapist is indicated.

Will Power
Income Inequality Argument

Presumes Finite Wealth Creation
1 by Craig R. Hersch, Florida Bar Board Certified
Wills, Trusts & Estates Attorney; CPA

Much has
I been said
ld about the
growing "prob-
Slem" of America's
income inequality.
It's been written
that the top one
percent of house-
holds account for
43 percent of busi-
ness income and 75 percent of capital
gains. This is a much higher percentage
than what was true a generation ago.
President Obama devoted a large por-
tion of his 2014 State of the Union
address to the "problem of income
Is income inequality therefore a prob-
Back in 1979 I earned $2.65 an hour
tossing pizzas. I might have said that it
was unfair that others made a lot more
money than I, but I was only in high
school at the time. I later worked my way
through college and law school on part-
time jobs and student loans, climbing my
way up from the income ladder's lower
I don't believe that's what troubles the
pundits. They look at a stagnating middle
class of working adults who have little or

no hope of moving up as I did. So the
answer, apparently, is to create tax laws
that serve as a quasi-wealth redistribution
But is that the solution?
In order to debate whether higher
taxes on unearned income and generated
wealth are the answers, one must first
presume that income inequality is a prob-
lem. And I disagree with that presump-
tion. Because in order to believe that
income inequality is a problem, one must
first accept the premise that income and
wealth are finite resources.
As an example, if Facebook founder
Mark Zuckerberg is worth several billion
dollars, then if there is a finite amount
of wealth that must mean that oth-
ers can only be worth pennies because
Zuckerberg has taken too many slices out
of a limited pie. And we know that isn't
Sticking with the Zuckerberg example,
together we witnessed that the creation
of Facebook not only led to his billions,
but has made many other individuals
and businesses millions of dollars too.
Web developers, advertisers, game cre-
ators and countless others have used the
Facebook platform to generate income,
create jobs and earn tremendous amounts
of wealth.

The same can be said of author JK
Rowling, the one-time single-mother
welfare recipient who penned the Harry
Potter book series. Think about all of the
wealth for others that she has created.
Movie directors, actors, special effects
wizards, theme-park designers, costume-
makers book publishers and video game
producers have all made personal for-
tunes from Rowling's unique ability to
articulate her vast imagination.
I therefore don't subscribe to the
theory that wealth is a zero-sum game. In
fact, it appears quite the opposite doesn't
it? There are those that can produce tre-
mendous wealth, but then the very ideas
that generated that wealth piggy-back to
related business opportunities. This isn't
"trickle down" so much as it is "opportu-
nity explosion".
So in the 21st century what would
it take to transform a high school pizza
pie maker into a wealthier contributor of
society? Most would agree that education
is important. How about the ability to
communicate ideas to others and to work

question of size is

Yes, a larger system will cool your

Who wouldn't want a system that cools
faster and saves money on their electric
bills? Let me explain.
Let's start with a question: Have you
ever been in a place that is cool but still
feels clammy or humid?
Restaurants are well known for this.
Let's say you went in for the early bird

case scenarios (when it's the most crowd-
ed) and this can be a problem.
Air conditioning systems in public
spaces need to be sized to accommodate
a large number of people, but the early
bird special crowd might be much smaller
than the crowd at 7 p.m. So, the restau-
rant's management turns the system way
down to prepare for the evening crowd
and to reduce the humidity level. In order
to drop the level of humidity, the tem-
perature needs to come way down.
A comfort system has two jobs to
perform in order for the occupants to be
comfortable. The system needs to reduce
temperature and also reduce humidity.
The temperature part is the easy one.
The humidity part is where we run into
problems, especially when it comes to
oversizing the equipment.
Humidity control is achieved through
what is known as air exchanges. This is
the number of times the air in a condi-
tioned space goes through the system in
a given amount of time. Lack of sufficient
air exchanges will equate to a humidity

problem, and this is where we get back to
the oversizing part. If we have a system
that is too large, the temperature in the
conditioned space will come down too
fast. This will prevent the air from cycling
through the system enough times for
proper dehumidification.
So in closing, when it is time for a
new a/c system, make sure that the
proper size is being installed. This is
achieved through doing a study of your
home and finding out what size needs to
be installed.

Insurance Tip
What Kind Of
Electrical Panel
Is In Your Home?

a t that goes by that I

thing new. This
past week I learned
hae e about electrical
What could one possibly learn about
an electrical panel? Well, unfortunately, I
would have to say a lot.
There are homes here on the island
and throughout the United States that
have electrical panels that are deemed
unsafe and unacceptable by some insur-
ance carriers. The issue is that the panels
pose a fire hazard if they have an over-
current or short circuit.
Think this issue only concerns those
older" homes? Actually no. The panels
were installed in homes as late as the
1980s. Electrical panels can appear to
work fine for years, but after just one
overcurrent or short, the panels can over
heat and become fire hazards.
Please take a moment and check what
kind of electrical panel you have and if
you should have any of the following,
then I urge you to contact a licensed elec-
trician to inspect your panel.
Here are some of the panels that have
had a history of concern: Federal Pacific,
Zinsco, Sylvania and Challenger.

A Dozen Ways

To Reduce

Chronic Pain
by Suzy Cohen, RPh
L D I have
chronic pain and
take ibuprofen daily
plus hydrocodone
and celecoxib. I'm
willing to do anything
fright now that could
help. The craziest
thing is that nothing
happened to me, I just developed pain
over the years, no accidents, no trauma.
Can you help me? D.W., Boca Raton,
Answer: Pain is a symptom not a
disease itself. It's your clue that something
is out of balance in your system. Without
knowing more details it's hard to hit the
nail on the head so I will give you (and
other readers who are suffering in pain)
some general information. My goal today
is to teach you about two different pain
chemicals that your body releases in
response to something. What that "some-
thing" is could be different for everyone.
Sometimes pain is triggered by foods
like gluten or nightshade vegetables,
sometimes it is from a nutrient deficiency
(like magnesium or CoQ10), and some-
times it is from poor elimination. If you
are constipated and toxins back up in
your gut, or in your blood, then this trig-
gers a physiological response in your
body that causes cells to release pain-
causing chemicals called "cytokines."
Two cytokines implicated in pain
include the leukotrienes and the prosta-
glandins. Those are such big names for
little substances but too much of these will
make you hurt. Your goal as a pain suf-
ferer is to reduce levels of those.
First up leukotrienes: These are a
subclass of "eicosanoids" pronounced
"I-koss-anoids" which when you say that

out loud, the last syllable sounds like the
word "annoyed" and that's exactly what
they do. They are very annoying and
irritating. Leukotrienes spark production
of other compounds involved in allergies,
food sensitivities, autoimmune disorders
and anaphylactic reactions. Leukotrienes
tend to increase if you eat food coloring,
like yellow dye #5, tartrazine, and other
artificial substances.
If you have pain, then non-steroidal
anti-inflammatory drugs (referred to as
NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen or naproxen
(Advil, and Aleve respectively) can help
you. These are sold over the counter at
pharmacies nationwide. The prescription
drug Celebrex (celecoxib) can also help.
Interestingly, researchers have found that
some natural compounds like boswelia
and quercetin can reduce those annoying
Since about 2001, the medical litera-
ture has shown that dark chocolate can
reduce eiconanoids too. Other natural
rescue remedies include omega 3 fatty
acids, flax seed, perilla seed oil, curcumin
and glycyrrhiza. The prescription medica-
tions Accolate and Singulair may help
too, especially if your problems are pri-
marily allergies.
Next up prostaglandins: Excessive
amounts of this cytokine occur with
arthritis, heavy menstrual cycles, pre-
menstrual syndrome, migraines, multiple
sclerosis, chronic lyme disease, as well as
colon and breast cancer. What substances
reduce prostaglandins? Fish oils, white
willow bark (salix alba), ecklonia cava (a
brown algae), meadowsweet (don't take if
you're allergic to salicylates like aspirin),
turmeric, skullcap, ginger root and pas-
Medications to consider include
aspirin, celecoxib, and the NSAID class
including ibuprofen and naproxen. Ask

Got A Problem?
Dr. Connie Is In
by Constance
Q: Someone
recently told me to
eat mindfully. I am
not exactly sure
what that means.
Can you explain?
A: Mindfulness
is a way of focusing
on your awareness
and being present.
Often we tend to eat unconsciously, or
not with a conscious awareness of what
we are really taking in. In our hurry-up
culture, we tend to eat quickly without
even realizing what we are even ingest-
ing. The following tips can help bring
about the awareness to learn the art of
mindful eating:
1. Eat only when you are physically
hungry. Your body will tell you when you
are physically hungry. That is when you
eat, not when you are emotionally hungry
just to fill a void. When you notice and
feel your hunger, this is the basis of con-
scious eating.
2. Eat when you can sit down and
take your time to focus on the food you
are putting in your mouth. Take a deep

ired of that
Sunny nose,
Sore throat,
continual cough,
especially during
the transition of
seasons? I have not
had a full blown
cold or cough for
at least five years. Not only do I do my
energy routines daily, but I also use
homeopathic remedies to stave off any
beginnings of colds, flus or coughs.
Especially during flying, it is so easy to
be susceptible to all the germs being
recycled through the air system of the
plane. So pay attention and if you feel
the beginning sniffles, try one of these
techniques to help.
If your symptoms are more sniffly and
sneezy than a dry cough and fever, then
working with the large intestine points
and bladder points wil start to make
huge shifts in the symptoms. Why is
this? Remember, from the large intestine
meridian column, it begins at the index
finger and continues to the nostril at our
nose, just where we want to influence the
sniffles. Bladder is the longest meridian in
the body and it governs the nervous sys-
tem so we want to reset the information
being sent throughout the body to stop

breath before you eat and be grateful for
the healthy meal that is before you.
3. When you eat healthy food, notice
where it comes from, the texture, the
smell, taste. Pay attention to eating your
food slowly, mindfully, and swallow after
you do this.
4. Eat at the slowest pace you feel
comfortable. Put your fork down before
taking the next bite. You don't have to
eat everything on your plate. A moderate
pace will also promote healthy digestion.
5. If you are dining out, have the chef
prepare your meal with the healthiest
ingredients rather than rich high calorie
oils and butter. Ask for dressings on the
side and have the server bring a take-
home box so you don't eat everything at
6. If you are a dessert eater, have a
couple of bites then take the rest home or
put it away for a later time. A dessert can
last a long time if you have a bite or two
as opposed to the whole dessert at once.
7. Leave a small empty space in your
stomach rather than eating until you are
stuffed. You will only feel too full and
8. Drink a large glass of water before
your meal as it will give you a full feeling
and you will be likely to eat less.
9. Eat smaller portions than you have
been normally eating and the more slowly
you eat, the fuller you will feel and you
won't feel the need for additional food.4

the symptoms. Do the following three
times each day for maximum relief and
continue until the symptoms are gone.
Step 1. Hold the web between your
thumb and index finger by placing the
middle finger in this area on the back of
your hand. When you touch this area,
you will likely find that it is dense and
firm as you begin. With reduction of con-
gestion, this area will be more palatable.
Hold on the right hand and then the left
for one minute each. It is beneficial to
rub the area with your index finger and
thumb to loosen it either before or after
you hold it.
Step 2. Place your middle fingers on
each side of your nostrils where they
touch the flat part of your face. Hold this
position for one minute
Step 3. Place your middle fingers on
each side of the upper edges of the eye
sockets right at the bridge of the nose.
It is important to note that this is the
beginning of the bladder meridian and,
to obtain the maximum benefit, curl your
finger under the eye ridge so the end of
the finger is touching the eyelid gently.
That's it! You should begin to feel
relief the same day you begin this tech-
nique. Have fun with your energy. Next

We visited friends over the weekend.
Over the bridge table, for the last six
months, they have been telling us about
their sleeping problems because it makes
it difficult for them to concentrate as they
suffer from insomnia and sleep apnea.
They showed us the apparatus they now

as if they were wired to go into space,
but they also say it helps.
According to Tufts University Health

"A nocturnal ailment that stops the suf-

time, dozens or even hundreds of times
through the course of the night."
Dominic Roca, MD, PhD, director
of the Connecticut Center For Sleep
Medicine at Stanford Hospital, believes
that physical abnormalities inside the
neck and mouth may cause the soft tissue
at the rear of the throat to collapse. This
briefly closes off air passages, disrupts
breathing and a tendency to snore. Loud
snoring may be the first sign of sleep

as well and don't function as well. They

ESF provides programs and services
for adults with ASD, including vocational

adult care in the daytime at Day Break at
the Miller Center in Winter Park, Florida.
Albe, a 26-year-old man with autism
and hyperlipidemia, is cared for at Day
Break, and has been since January of
2012. He attends Day Break five days
a week. Albe is limited verbally; he only
speaks when spoken to and primarily
repeats words that he hears. Without
ESF, Albe might not have a place to go
when his family is working, and because
his communication skills are reserved
his options for vocational training and
employment are limited.
When Albe first came to Day Break,
he observed the daily activities, which
include games and arts and crafts, but
rarely participated. Today, he is involved
with the daily exercise program, enjoys
playing putt-putt golf and taking strolls in
