3 ISLAND SUN APRIL 18, 2014 From page 1The Big BangIt has a cast of 318 with 6,428 costumes. The producers are using a friends spacious Park Avenue apartment with the skylights of New York visible through the window. The audience represents potential backers as Jed and Boyd hold a backers audition trying to get money for their new show. Compton and LoBalsamo have a great time, using curtains in the apartments living room for costumes, turning a lampshade into Nefertitis headdress and using just about everything else available to serve as costumes and props. The two are natural partners, playing off one another and setting their timing with the same internal watch. They also show a wealth of accents depending on the characters they are showing off in over 15 songs. Both are comic naturals and have voices to meet the challenge. Their pianist is Aimee Radics. There are so many memorable moments. I was hysterical watching LoBalsamo as Nefertiti. He even broke up Compton who had trouble keeping a straight face, but in this setting it was acceptable and added to the hilarity. Both are equally funny portraying an exasperated Mother Mary and Mrs. Ghandi who say they tried to raise normal kids. Pocahontas and Minnehaha get into the act, as do two overworked chefs cooking for Henry VIII. The Napoleon and Josephine skit is also a riot. From Adam and Eve to present day in 90 minutes The Big Bang is a fitting way to end the season. The charm and magic of the show is how the actors make their magician-like quick changes in full view of the audience with ingeniously simple materials. You cant help but enjoy this hilarious musical journey directed by Jeremy Gold Kronenberg. The Big Bang plays through May 3 at the BIG ARTS Herb Strauss Theater, 2200 Periwinkle Way on Sanibel. Tickets are available online at www.BIGARTS. org, by calling 395-0900 or at the box office.

11 ISLAND SUN APRIL 18, 2014 Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellWe had such a great speaker at Rotary this week but I have a limited capacity to fully understand the topic. The topic was our national economy and the role the Federal Reserve has on monetary policy. The speaker was Dr. David M. Jones, president and CEO of DMJ Advisors, LLC, executive professor of economics and finance at Florida Gulf Coast University and author of numerous books on Federal Reserve policy. Jones began his career as an economist with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Jones has been called one of Americas most respected Fed watchers. His latest book, Understanding Central Banking, was just released in December. He has appeared as a regular commentator on CNBC, CNN and other network and cable TV news shows. He has been featured in Smart Money and Money magazines. Jones said, It is no big secret that our economy has some major issues economic growth and jobs. In the last five years, our country has been stumbling our way back following the recession of 2007-2008, mid-2007, the bursting of the housing bubble, and 2008, a housing market correction and a subprime mortgage crisis. Our economy was in near collapse. Banks werent lending money and businesses were in free-fall. As Jones said, the economy hit the wall, the money spigot was turned off. Who could turn it back on? The Federal Reserve. The Federal Reserves primary function is to manage the nations money supply and interest rates. The Federal Reserve Board during 2008 and 2009 used emergency measures to steady the economy. One of the measures was to electronically create money and use it to lend against collateral of various types. Jones refers to it essentially as printing money. This increased the money supply to be used by the federal government during the bailout and continues even today. Printing money increases the money supply or what Fed chair at the time, Ben Bernanke, called credit easing. This is complicated stuff. Jones is concerned that this policy of printing money by the Feds continues whenever a financial crisis is looming and is putting the United States in debt. The security connected to this electronically created money is beyond understanding. So, if youre interested, read one of his books. Five years later, where are we now? Recovery from the recession of 20072009 has stumbled during the last five years. Federal Reserve monetary policies and interest rate settings have not created the number of jobs expected. Although the new Federal Reserve chairwoman, Janet Yellen, is assuredly working on job growth, some market watchers doubt that interest rate changes are the only stimulus necessary to grow jobs and stimulate our countrys business environment. Jones briefly discussed government regulations that stifle the economy. America has the potential of creating a new wave of prosperity. Jones predicted that energy markets are key to the United States new wave forward to economic recovery. Government deregulation of securing these natural resources will stimulate business investment and job growth both at home and abroad. He also mentioned that new business creation overall has been subdued because of government regulations. Taking a look at how to change or loosen regulations in that sector might provide a jumping off point to again opening the market place and creating jobs.

He had a special collection of the miniature shells (wenteltraps, scallops, horse conchs) that only a patient sheller would find. He loved oldies music, enjoyed stir-fry and grouper, was an avid football and hockey fan, collected antiques, dabbled in watercolor and stained glass but excelled in photography. John and Pat bought a cottage in Bryson City in western North Carolina in 1983 and spent many wonderful vacations there. After Johns retirement, he was able to enjoy being there in the summer and early fall. Over the years, he photographed the beautiful Smoky Mountains fall foliage, the beautiful summer flowers and most recently captured a fabulous photo of the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad that will be in their new brochure and website. Since the early 2000s, John and Pat have been part of the Captiva Chapel by the Sea family. John served on the board of associates and looked after the preservation of the chapel for many years. Every year, he painstakingly designed, installed, maintained and then took down and stored the 6,000 to 8,000 magnificent Christmas lights at the chapel, including the 15-foot Christmas tree. During his years at Song of the Sea, tens of thousands would make the special trip on Christmas Eve to enjoy his trio of beautifully decorated Christmas trees, lighted grounds and the over 125 luminaries all set by his hand. For many years, he also decorated the tall Australian pine tree at the corner of Periwinkle Way and Lindgren. His work with the Christmas lights was beautiful, tasteful and enchanting and, like the man himself, will not be forgotten. John is survived by his wife of 44 years, Pat, and his special felines, Misty, McKenzie, Katie, Mozart, Angel and Dawg; sisters-in-law Mary (Greg) Burlett, Peggy (Larry) Nolder, brothersin-law William (Sharon) Mosca, Thomas (deceased) and Vincent (Robbin) Mosca; many nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews on Pats side; his cousins Noreen Atkatz, Jeff Swain, Megan Browne and Mark Swain, Karen Swain, Mary Ann (Harry) Sichak and their families; and special friends, Jeff and Barb Molnar and his godchildren, Alison and Ian Molnar. John will be honored at a memorial service on Sunday, April 27 starting at 12:15 p.m., immediately after the 11 a.m. service (last service of the season) at Captivas Chapel by the Sea. Johns ashes will be placed on a special day in the historic Captiva Chapel by the Sea Cemetery. Memorials can be made in Johns honor to the Captiva Chapel by the Sea, P.O.

ISLAND SUN APRIL 18, 201420 Birds Eye ViewMy Experiences With River Ottersby Mark Bird WestallWell, it was a long wait for the Wildlife Drive to be repaved (I wasnt able to take out any trips for five months), but it seems that the project was a success. The pavement is as smooth as a babys bottom; bicyclists can now traverse the drive safely and not deflate their tires and my canoes do not make a racket on the trailer like they did with the old surface. But I have noticed something else with the new pavement that was more difficult to see in the past. It seems like just about every other time I go onto the drive, I spot the tracks of river otters crossing from one side to the other, especially just after you go past the fee booth. Several times this year, the otters have still been in the barrow ditches alongside the drive, giving tourists a wonderful view of one of Sanibels most endearing wild creatures. When we spot the otters in the canoe, I can often talk to them in their own language and get them to at least stop and turn around, raising their heads up out of the water and looking at us with curious eyes. Sometimes, I can even get them to come to within 20 feet of the canoe. I dont speak their language very well; only being able to give their alarm call, which has been described as an explosive snort, made by expelling air through the nostrils. I compare the sound they make to someone clearing his nose without using a handkerchief. They seem to be like that one kid in the classroom who was forever in trouble with the teacher, pulling pony tails, shooting spit balls, or sticking a piece of chalk in the eraser so it would leave a mark on the blackboard when someone tried to use it. It is fun to watch the otters cavorting with each other in the water, rolling and tumbling over each other. They always seem to be at play. But they are serious predators. Their primary diet is fish and crustaceans, but they also occasionally prey on wetlands birds, like ducks and rails, insects, and, in the rare situation, mammals such as the marsh rabbit. Once, I was on the Sanibel River and watched a river otter up on the bank, tugging on the tail of a four-foot alligator that was desperately trying to claw his way back into the water, grunting his own juvenile distress call. The otter seemed to be determined to pull the young gator up out of the water until it noticed our approach and released its struggling prey. The river otter has always been one of my favorite creatures. The animal lover in me fantasized about having one of these wild spirits as one of my friends that would come up to me and play whenever we bumped into each other out in the swamps. But I realized that any type of real companionship with a wild animal usually means the eventual destruction of that animal. A tame, wild animal either becomes too dangerous, such as alligators, or a nuisance, like the welfare birds you see hanging out around the fishermen. But river otters are just so cute. Years ago, during a cool, spring morning, that cuteness tested my resolve to keep the wildlife wild when I was on a canoe trip on Buck Key. We were way down inside the island on a mosquito ditch when we came across an orphaned otter pup that was struggling in the water trying to climb up the side of the ditch. It was only about six weeks old and appeared to be very weak. In the past, I had seen adult otters in the area and I was thinking that this pup had been abandoned by its mother because something was wrong with it. I felt he was probably the runt of the litter and was destined to die. If I intervened, wouldnt I be going against the rules of nature and helping to pass on inferior genes? While we were watching this poor little guy struggling to get out of the water the folks on my trip made their feelings be known that something had to be done to help him. So, I put on a pair of gloves and pulled the pup up out of the water. Of course, he tried to bite me, but I was able to control him. On arriving back at the cars, I bid farewell to my customers and went down the Captiva road to where the old CROW facility was located. They were in the process of moving from Captiva to a new location on Sanibel and nobody was home. I thought to myself, God, somebody up there really is testing me today! He was so cute and cuddly in my hands; maybe I could take him home and raise him myself. The whole way back down to Sanibel, I had a running debate with myself. I would have loved to raise that little guy as one of the family, but I knew that would not be doing the otter any favors; I would only be making me feel good. So, I pulled into CROW and let them raise him the way humans should raise a wild animal; with as little human contact as possible. The next day, I went back to Buck Key and in the same area where we found the pup, we came across the dead body of the mother. I had been thinking that my rescued pup was the weakest of the litter and had been abandoned, but maybe he was the strongest and after the mother had died, he was the one who made his way out of the den and was trying to find his mom. Maybe he was destined to live and pass on some of those strong genes.

21 ISLAND SUN APRIL 18, 2014 CROW Case Of The Week: Brown Pelican Is A Model Patientby Patricia MolloyThe brown pelican (Pelecanus occidentalis) is a small pelican, native to the Americas, that is frequently seen closely skimming the oceans surface around Sanibels beaches and diving from great heights to pluck fish out of the warm Gulf waters. Recently, one these graceful fliers was found on the ground, in obvious distress, and admitted to CROW. From the moment he entered the doors of the wildlife clinic, Dr. Heather recognized that patient #0805 was a special bird. Hes beautiful. An unusually handsome pelican, she said with a huge grin. As part of his intake examination, the birds body was gently palpated in an effort to detect broken bones and bodily injuries. While none were found, Dr. Heather couldnt help but notice that the feathers on his neck were so soft they feel like mink. All fun aside, the male bird was indeed quite ill and presented as painfully thin, lethargic and depressed. Early blood tests revealed that the pelicans body was producing an abnormally high level of white blood cells, indicating that his immune system was working hard to fight an infection. We took radiographs and his kidneys were a little bit larger than they should be and his heart was really tall and thin. You see this sometimes in really dehydrated birds. But other than that, I didnt see anything that would indicate what the site of infection was, explained Dr. Heather. The pelican has been placed on antibiotics and strict cage rest. His morning routine begins with a soft towel being gently paced over his head covering a birds eyes has a calming affect and he is weighed on a large scale to ensure that he is gaining weight. After the time of day and weight are recorded in his medical chart, its time for breakfast; fondly known amongst staff as tub time. In an effort to make a patients stay at the wildlife hospital as stress-free as possible, CROW goes to great lengths to provide stimulating environments that mimic the natural habitats of birds, mammals and reptiles. In the case of the seabird, the pelican is placed in a water-filled bathtub with a pulled curtain for privacy. It gives the patient time to swim and stretch his wings, all while gobbling small fatty fish from the water. Tub time also allows the busy staff to thoroughly clean the patients enclosure undisturbed. This routine of feeding and cleaning is carried out several times each day to ensure that the pelican grows to a healthy weight and has a clean environment in which to heal. With continued supportive care, the brown pelican with the model good looks should make a full recovery and return to the equally beautiful beaches of Sanibel.

ISLAND SUN APRIL 18, 201422 Where Are The Shiners?by Capt. Matt MitchellIts been well over a month since the weather has not been responsible for at least one rescheduled or cancelled trip a week. This proved true again this week with more rain and wind keeping most anglers off the water for at least a day or two. April should really be the start of a much more consistent weather pattern yet mother nature is simply not cooperating. What seems like the most asked question on the water this past month has been where is the bait For some reason so far the shiners aka whitebait, pilchards, scaled sardines have just not shown up in good numbers yet. Catching shiners has been more hit and miss than I can ever remember this year. Generally by the middle of March live bait fisherman have all made the switch from live shrimp to shiners, this has just not happened yet this year. Sure there are as many pinfish and threadfins as you could ever want but the favorite spring time bait to catch snook, redfish and trout has yet to appear in large numbers. I dont know if its caused by the lack of sea grass in the southern sound due to the fall water releases but even the schools of shiners that are usually out on the beach have not shown up yet either. Just keep chumming out on the flats and throwing on the bridges, they have to show up in the next few weeks. Before the last little cold spell I had just began to hear more reports of anglers hooking a few tarpon throughout the sound. Several reports came from just around redfish pass from fellow charter Captains shark fishing on cut baits while other reports came from closer to home from anglers trout fishing by the powerlines with small live pinfish while targeting trout and surprisingly hooking into a couple of 100 pounders on tackle way too light to have a chance. This weeks forecast of warm weather should really kick off spring tarpon fishing as the large schools of threadfins these fish love to feed on are already here. As a fisherman this month is one of the most exciting times of the year to be on the water. We switch gears and prepare for the arrival of the silver king. In the next month tarpon become the number one target for many anglers in our area. They are like no other fish that swims in our waters, learning there movements and how to successfully fish for them only comes with time and lots of patience. This fish has a cult like following like no other fish in our waters. The adrenaline rush of hooking one just cannot be explained. Every tarpon fight is different with no two fish ever giving a angler the same battle. Im pumped up and cant wait to start the hunt. Capt. Matt Mitchell has been fishing local waters since he moved to Sanibel in 1980. He now lives in St. James City and works as a back country fishing guide. If you have comments or questions email Send Us Your Fish TalesThe Island Sun would like to hear from anglers about their catches.

CROW is not permitted to display its patients publically, so this presentation offers the next best thing; numerous candid snapshots of current and past patients, with commentary by Claudia Burns, a veteran clinic volunteer. The next CROW Picture Shows are on Friday, April 18 and 25 at 11 a.m., with a repeat at 2 p.m. in CROWs Visitor Education Center at 3883 SanibelCaptiva Road, across from The Sanibel School.

29 ISLAND SUN APRIL 18, 2014 Plant SmartLeather Fernby Gerri ReavesFlorida is the only state where leather fern (Acrostichum danaeifolium) is found. This member of the maidenhair fern family is also called giant leather fern, and with good reason, for this native typically grows about six feet tall, sometimes as high as 12 feet. In the wild, it grows in coastal hammocks, swamps and along inland canals and ponds. The stiff spreading fronds arise from thick fleshy roots that make the plant useful in preventing erosion along waterways. Fronds are pinnately compound with 20 to 60 pairs of leaflets, whose coarse texture justifies the term leather. Felt-like reddish brown spore cases coat the undersides of the fertile fronds, which are taller and more erect than the non-fertile ones. The lanceolate leaflets are dark green with paler undersides, prominent midribs, and under-turned edges. Also known as inland leather fern, this robust species does best in a moist partially shaded spot with plenty of room to develop. As a specimen plant, this large fern makes a dramatic statement. It also works well in a mass planting or even a hedge. It has high salt tolerance, low drought tolerance and a medium growth rate. Propagate leather fern by dividing the rhizomes or with the spores. The only maintenance is the optional removal of old fronds. Sources: Native Florida Plants by Robert G.

ISLAND SUN APRIL 18, 201432 NOAA: Not Just A Foul-Weather Coastal Friendsubmitted by Ken and Kate Gooderham, ASBPA executive directors Coastal residents may only know about NOAA the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration at the worst of times say, when the National Hurricane Center is talking about a major storm stirring things up offshore. But NOAA plays a larger and more substantial role in U.S. coastal issues, and its worth any coastal advocates time to get to know more about the agency. While NOAA is a relative newcomer to coastal concerns (having been formed in 1970), its roots go far back in the countrys history all the way to the National Coastal and Geodetic Survey formed in 1807. Drawn together from a number of existing agencies, NOAA was tasked to work for better protection of life and property from natural hazards for a better understanding of the total environment [and] for exploration and development leading to the intelligent use of our marine resources. It works through the following to accomplish those goals: National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service: Providing satellite and scientific data to provide information and conduct assessments. Thanks to this, we can keep an eye on weather systems, polar ice caps, ocean and land conditions and more all from eyes hundreds of miles in the sky. National Marine Fisheries Service: Monitoring and maintaining marine habitat and species, including fishery management and regulation to balance commercial and public needs. So, if you like to fish (or just like to eat those caught by someone else), these are the folks who fret about the state of the species. This arm weighs in on coastal permits as well, as those involved with beach restoration projects are aware. National Ocean Service: Home of the Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management, which includes many wellknown coastal programs such as the Coastal Zone Management Program, the National Estuarine Research Reserve System, the Coastal Estuarine Land Conservation Program and more. Youll also find the many state-based Coastal Ocean Observing Systems here. Also the source for nautical charts, tidal information and a lot of coastal data (see State of the Coast below). National Weather Service: As the name implies they provide weather, water and climate data, forecasts and warnings for the protection of life and property issuing some 1.5 million forecasts and 50,000 warnings annually. The National Hurricane Center is housed here, of course. Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research: Focused on atmospheric, climate and ocean/coastal research, to help others understand the natural processes at work here in hopes of achieving better forecasts, warnings and science. Drawing on the work done in the other offices, youll find reports on ocean acidification, drought resilience, hurricane hunting and more. The National Sea Grant College Program is based here, which operates in 33 coastal states bringing coastal research closer to home. Office of Program Planning and Integration: A recent addition to the agency to foster integration and strategic management. NEPA (the National Environmental Policy Act) is here, as well as other regional and strategic collaborations. If youre in to coastal statistics and reports, be sure to check out NOAAs State of the Coast online compendium, teeming with tidbits such as: $6.6 trillion The contribution to U.S. GDP from coastal shoreline counties, just under half of the countrys entire GDP in 2011. That would rank as the third largest GDP in the world if coastal counties were considered as an individual country. 51 million The total number of jobs in U.S. coastal shoreline counties in 2011, which generate $2.8 trillion in wages. 16.4 million The approximate population residing in a coastal floodplain in 2010 (5 percent of the U.S. population) and 12 percent of them have incomes below the poverty level. 39 percent How much of the nations total population lived in coastal shoreline counties in 2010 (the number has gone up since then, and doesnt include coastal watershed or coastal-adjacent counties which are typically used to calculate actual coastal population). Those folks live on less than 10 percent of the total U.S. land area, which means coastal shoreline counties have a population density more than four times higher than the U.S. as a whole.

ISLAND SUN APRIL 18, 201436 It Takes Patience And Persistence, Says Famed Photographerby Jeff LysiakTwo capacity crowds gathered at the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuges Visitor & Education Center on April 11 to hear iconic wildlife photographer Clyde Butcher discuss Florida: Where Water, Earth & Heaven Meet during the final Friday Lecture Series presentation of the season. Butchers presentation, which included many color and black-and-white images taken throughout his illustrious career as well as several videos of the photographer in action, was followed by a book signing at the refuge nature store. The first time I visited the Everglades, it sort of reminded me of the Redwood Forest, said Butcher, whose career behind the camera began in California in the early 1960s. There really is a kind of prehistoric quality to Floridas landscape. Butcher, who had a very successful career as a nature photographer by marketing his images to national retail chains including Sears, J.C. Penney and Montgomery Ward made the transition from color to black-and-white photography with large-scale cameras in the late1970s. Since then, he has become one of the worlds most celebrated landscape photographers, earning accolades for his work as an artist and an advocate for preserving and protecting wildlife. During his 55-minute presentation, Butcher talked about his admiration for photographic legend Ansel Adams whose work his has been compared with for decades and shared a story about meeting Adams, who at the time was selling his 16 x 20 photographic prints for $75 each. Ansel Adams actually took many of his photographs while sitting in his car, he told the crowd while showing them a series of images taken on the side of the road near Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park. He used to say Nobody gives you points for being a mule. In reality, Butcher takes many of his photographs while tackling some of Southwest Floridas wettest and wildest terrain. Between September and March, he leads groups on swamp walks behind his Big Cypress Gallery in Ochopee (on the edge of the Everglades), demonstrating key elements of his unique photographic style. In several images, he explained the back story of taking the photograph. One picture, called Wilderness Waterway, was taken on Sanibel at the refuge tower. He explained that he waited for five hours before all of the conditions were perfect. I like just watching the clouds do their thing you just wait, keep patient, until it explodes, said Butcher. There are a lot of choices of what you can shoot, but every time I go click its $10 (for the large format 8 x10 film). Its not like digital, which is much less expensive. Butcher held a short question-andanswer session following his lecture, offering world-be photographers some advice on improving their images. You have to be persistent, he noted. Fine art photography has really rich blacks and really rich whites and all of the subtle mid-tones in between. Its very difficult to get those things just right in the darkroom. He also shared a story about leading former President Jimmy Carter on one of his swamp walks. After Carter saw a number of his photographs hanging at the Big Cypress Gallery, the former U.S. leader questioned, Why do you use an 8 x 10 camera? That must be very difficult to do. Smiling, Butcher responded, Well why did you run for President? That must be very difficult to do.

ISLAND SUN APRIL 18, 201438 Yacht Clubs Junior Sailing Camp To Use International Class SailboatsCaptiva Island Yacht Club Commodore Ed Stringer announced that the club will use Optimist Prams and Lasers, both International Class sailboats, in their upcoming Junior Sailing Camps open to kids ages 8 to 15 of all experience levels this coming summer. Membership in the yacht club is not necessary for participation. Session 1, held from Monday, June 23 to Friday, July 4, is for beginning sailors. Session 2, held from Monday, July 7 to Friday, July 18, is for intermediate level sailors who want to learn more about racing and tuning a boat for speed. Captiva Island Yacht Club will use the U.S. Sailing Associations curriculum at our Junior Sailing Camp. In a few short weeks, campers can graduate from learning on Optimist Prams to sailing Olympic racing class Lasers, said Stringer. Camp will be held at the Captiva Island Yacht Club, located next to Tween Waters Inn on Captiva Drive. Beginning sailors will learn to rig and sail their own Optimist Prams, single-handed sailing dinghies approved by the International Sailing Federation for youngsters. The original Pram was designed in 1947 by Clark Mills of Clearwater, Florida, a member of the Optimist Clubs of America. Mills designed a small, stable, responsive boat that could back then be constructed for $50. This low cost opened opportunities in the sport to many children. At the recent London Olympics, 80 percent of competing skippers learned to sail on Optimist Prams. Once campers master the basics of sailing, they can graduate to Lasers. These competitive racing boats sturdy, simple to rig and sail single-handed are very fast. The 13-foot Lasers became an Olympic class in 1996 and are raced all over the world. It is important for young people to learn how to harness the power of the wind and experience the joy of controlling a sailboat. Its a sport they can enjoy all through their lives.

I am her guardian. She will attend The Sanibel School this fall and has already joined a church youth group and a softball team. I thought it would be a unique welcome to her to have her first photograph printed in our favorite newspaper. Susan Gordon took the first picture, then taught Amaya how to snap a good picture of a great horned owl atop one of our frond-less palm trees in the second photo. It was near midnight when Amaya and Susan were taking our dogs out one last time that they spotted the owl. He seemed quite unafraid of the commotion and was patient enough to wait until a camera could be retrieved. We sent pictures of the owls to Amayas teacher in Kansas and to friends and relatives. She also has pictures of a great egret walking in front of us as we were walking the dogs, the gators in our lake and the two night herons nesting again in the pines. Shes as enamored with the beauty and sanctity of Sanibel as I. Great horned owl photo by Susan Gordon Great horned owl photo by Amaya

ISLAND SUN APRIL 18, 201440 Ding Darling Announces High School Photo Contest WinnersAt a special ceremony on April 12, the Ding Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge (DDWS) announced finalists and winners in the inaugural Ding Darling-Theodore Cross High School Photography Contest. Sponsored by the Theodore Cross Family Charitable Foundation, the competition was for high school students from Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Glades and Hendry counties to compete for prizes that included a Canon digital SLR camera package, chartered class trips to the refuge, and copies of Waterbirds: Portraits and Anecdotes from Birding Adventures by contest namesake, the late Theodore Cross. Cross, who lived part-time on Sanibel and has family still living here, marched with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.; advised the Johnson and Nixon administrations on antipoverty programs; wrote the influential book Black Capitalism, among others; played a prominent role in President Obamas election; and created Birders United, a web site that ranked legislators according to their record of bird protection support. Late in life, Cross decided to indulge his love for birds and photography and traveled the world to collect portraits and stories to chronicle his adventures. He photographed often at Ding Darling, and a number of the images in his book reflect his love for the refuge. Cross published Waterbirds in 2009 at age 85; he passed away shortly after that in February 2010. National Public Radios All Things Considered called Cross collection of 179 images and countless anecdotes spectacular. The New York Times described it as part visual encyclopedia, part memoir. Photographer Bill Fischer, refuge biologist Bill Thomas, and community member Ginny Kopperl judged the contest, which was curated by Sarah Lathrop and Terry Baldwin. First place went to a snowy egret portrait by Maxx Pollack of Canterbury High School. Alejandrina Arroyo-Pena from Lehigh Senior High took second with her palm warbler. In third place, James Klein from Cape Coral High, captured an Eastern green water snake with his camera. Honorable mention winners and other finalists are listed below. Theodore Cross family made this contest possible, and we hope it will continue on an annual basis, said Birgie Miller, DDWS executive director. We couldnt be more thrilled that the family wanted their donation used in this way to reach an age group that often falls through the cracks of conservation education. DDWS intern Sarah Lathrop did an excellent job running the competition. We were surprised and delighted that we had nearly 400 amazing photo entries in our first year said Lathrop. Teachers, advisors, and volunteers worked hard at helping to encourage students to enter with nearly 100 entries from Lehigh Acres High School alone. We are so happy to be supporting a contest in my fathers name, a contest that will get our youth involved with nature by looking at it as my father so loved doing through a camera lens, said daughter Amanda Cross. Students were able to submit up to two photographs. Winning and honorable mention images are on display at the Ding Darling Education & Visitor Center and will be available to view by Facebook album on DDWS page, Winners 1st Maxx Pollack, Canterbury High School 2nd Alejandrina Arroyo-Pena, Lehigh Senior High School 3rd James Klein, Cape Coral High School First place winner Maxx Pollack, third place winner James Klein, Deputy Refuge Manager Joyce Palmer, second place winner Alejandrina Arroyo-Pena, Amanda Cross (daughter of Theodore Cross), and Jim Hellmuth (lifelong friend of Theodore Cross) Maxx Pollacks winning photo of a snowy egret Lets SHOP Till We Drop Collars, Harnesses & Leads Great Pet Toys Pet Beds & Carriers Breed Speci c Items Cat Stuff Too!

45 ISLAND SUN APRIL 18, 2014 Bling Bash Was A Big Successsubmitted by Nola TheissThe 2nd annual Bling Bash was a successful, fun afternoon. We had volunteers from all around the county and want to especially thank members of the Zonta Club of SanibelCaptiva who came out to set up, sell and clean up as well as FGCU students who volunteered. Cips Place waiters served delicious canaps, wine, water and iced tea and the Eileen Fisher staff jumped in and helped with the displays. Most of our previously loved jewelry now has happy, new owners. We had one family of three generations shopping happily. A large audience witnessed the presentation of the 2014 Human Trafficking Awareness Partner Award to Yaro Garcia, head clinician at ACT. Jennifer Benton, executive director of ACT, attended and was recognized for ACTs continuing support of human trafficking victims and building human trafficking awareness in the region. We want to thank the 60 generous donors of live and silent auction items, including Mark Loren Designs, Bradley Jewelers, Lindy Holt, Gulf Breeze Cottages and many others. This year, we had a diverse selection of items including unique pieces of jewelry from Mark Loren and Lindy Holt; a vintage painted desk from Vintage Designs; and valuable gift certificates from Bradley Jewelers, Estero Point Resorts and Gulf Breeze Cottages. Jean Baer was amazing as the auctioneer. The money earned at this event will be used to fund our prevention programs for youth. This summer, we will be conducting ARTREACH programs at Our Mothers Home, Heights Center and Boys and Girls Clubs. Volunteers are always welcome. For more information, contact us at or 415-2635.

The meeting, to be held on Thursday, April 24 at 7 p.m. at the Sanibel Public Library, is free and open to the public. Connor was in 8th grade when her parents dove into the world of paranoid politics, a world dominated by the John Birch Society (JBS). The phrase Were taking back the country was originated by founder Robert Welch in 1958. This seductive mantra turned Connors parents into life-long anti Communist, anti-government radicals. When she recognized these radical ideas being spouted as solutions to contemporary challenges, she knew she had to tell her story. Her book, named one of the best of 2013 in nonfiction by Kirkus Reviews, goes deep into the heart of the JBS and exposes the extreme ideas of that powerful political fringe group and shows how it continues to impact America today. She says, the past is not dead. In fact, it is not even past. Sanibel poet-author Joe Pacheco will also be present to share a couple of his political poems.

ISLAND SUN APRIL 18, 201446 Monday Night MovieIn The Houseby Di SaggauThe BIG ARTS movie for Monday, April 21 is In The House, a clever psychological comedy that touches upon the nature of creativity and stories within stories. Loosely set on a Spanish play called The Boy in the Last Row, its set in a secondary school in an unidentified French town where the intense prissy, humorless Germain (the fabulous Fabrice Luchini) teaches literature. In his mid-50s, he is married without children. Germain despises most of his fellow teachers for their conventional thinking and despairs of his pupils for their uniformity and lack of imagination. His wife, Jeanne (Kristin Scott Thomas), runs a would-be fashionable avant-garde art gallery. Germain discovers a gifted pupil, 16-year-old Claude, who turns in an essay on What I did last week. Claude writes of his fascination with a fellow pupil and his seemingly perfect middleclass life with adoring parents. They are so different from Claudes own broken family. Germain is grabbed by the mixture of affection and satire in Claudes paper and becomes obsessed with the development of Claudes literary style. We learn that Germains given name is Claude, and that he himself is the author of an unsuccessful novel and haunted by its failure. In The House is crafty and juicy and ought to delight anyone whose ever thought themselves a storyteller. The award-winning film runs 105 minutes. Next up on April 28 is the last Monday Night Film for this season, Augustine, a gothic love story about a doctor and patient. 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.

47 ISLAND SUN APRIL 18, 2014 Poets Corner selected by Tanya HochschildThe Swimming Placeby Derek FellTwo waterfalls bright, In a cathedral of trees, Making pools of deep water; Silver threads in the breeze. I walk down a dark path, Engulfed in green vines, And swim in slow movements As though afloat in a shrine. The water sparkles, feels cool, It refreshesrestores I drift through fine spray, Climb to a great height, Dive from high lava rocks, Emerge in a shaft of sunlight. I bathe there for hours Enthralled by the scene, Make a sketch on a pad Never felt more serene. As smooth as a mirror, Clear and clean shore to shore. Island resident Derek Fell was inspired to write this poem after discovering a series of waterfalls along a hiking trail on the Big Island of Hawaii. Duplicate BridgeOn Tuesday, April 8, there were seven tables in play at The Sanibel Community Association. The winners were: North/South 1. Helen and Jim McCartney 2.

Anyone interested may submit their work via email to tutsie@ Each week, individual work will be showcased. BIG ARTS Documentary Seriesby Di SaggauThe critically acclaimed BIG ARTS Documentary Series continues on Wednesday, April 22 at 1:30 p.m. in Schein Hall with the controversial documentary Blackfish. The film focuses on the captivity of Tilikum, a 12,000-pound male orca involved in the deaths of three individuals, and the consequences of keeping killer whales in captivity. It includes interviews with trainers and one of the whalers who stole Tillicum from his family as a baby. Tillicum, however, is not the villain. This particular whale, serving as a glorified sperm bank for SeaWorld, is the genetic source for over half of SeaWorlds whales in their entire park system. While that is frightening, whats more frightening is the knowledge that these whales have a sense of self, a sense of family, even a portion of the brain that humans lack. One former trainer said, When you look into their eyes, you know somebody is home. Somebodys looking back. Blackfish raises awareness about their captivity. The film runs 83 minutes. There will be a brief introduction to the movie and a discussion after with the audience. Tickets are $5 each. For more information, call 395-0900.

Artists Say Thanks To Sanibel LibraryOn April 3, 2014 the directors of Sanibel Captiva Art League made a presentation to the Sanibel Public Library with thanks for all the library does in supporting the league through regular exhibitions of art. The monthly exhibitions range from shows of work by one or more artist members of the league, judged and/or juried exhibits, as well as open shows. Margaret Mohundro, library director Joanne Wessels, technology manager, and Dan Moeder, treasurer of the board of commissioners, were presented with a current book by Richard Smith and Katie Swatland, Alla Prima II: Everything I Know about Painting and More. As well, two DVDs by Charles Reid were presented: Watercolor Solutions and Watercolor Secrets.

NEWSPAPERSanibel&CaptivaIslands VOL. 21, NO. 43 SANIBEL & CAPTIVA ISLANDS, FLORIDA APRIL 18, 2014 B BSECTIONCaptiva Breaks Ground For New Fire Stationby Jeff LysiakOn April 10, about two dozen firefighters, fire commissioners, public officials and VIPs turned over dirt during a groundbreaking ceremony for the Captiva Island Fire Control Districts new headquarters. The facility, which will be located at 14981 Captiva Drive, replaces the fire station originally constructed in 1980. According to Captiva Fire Chief Rich Dickerson, the new 6,110-square-foot station will include three bays (the previous station had two), an administration building with living quarters (seven bunk rooms), four offices, training room and break room. After Hurricane Charley, we didnt have a place for all of the emergency personnel we had out here, said Dickerson. We had talked about a remodel (of the old facility); we wanted a building that could serve this community for the next 50 years. Captiva Fire Commissioner Bob Brace, who emceed the groundbreaking ceremony, talked about the project partners responsible for envisioning, designing, financing and constructing the new facility. They include Sweet Sparkman Architects, J L Wallace, Inc. Construction, Fifth Third Bank, past and present firefighters as well as the island community. Todd Sweet spent a lot of time planning something that would fit right in with Captiva, and we believe theyve done that, said Brace, who called the community support the district received for the project the glue thats held this together. Dickerson noted that construction officials have estimated the new fire station will take eight to 10 months to complete.

6B ISLAND SUN APRIL 18, 2014 Sanibel Minors Teams Go 1-1-1 In NaplesSanibels first ever minors division baseball teams traveled to Naples to play against three top Naples teams this past Saturday. Sanibel teams won one, lost one and tied one. In the opening game, Sanibel Blue (2-1) beat Naples Raptors 8-3 behind solid pitching from Matthew Ciccone (1-0) and Chase Johnson (S, 1). Kaden Taylor hit key a key triple to drive in three runs (2-3, 5 RBI). Jackson McKee began a double play in the final inning to thwart Naples from rallying. Riley Johnson scored three times after reaching base every time at the plate (2 BB; 1 HBP). In the second game, Sanibel combined 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 took his second loss on the season (1-2) after a stellar start the prior weekend versus the Cape Coral Yankees. Daniel Paul (1-1) cracked a double to deep centerfield, Tye Phoenix (1-2, 1 R) had a base hit, and Chase Johnson (0-1, 1 R, 1 BB) stole two bases in the cause. The third game was exciting throughout. Sanibel White (1-1-1) couldnt hold a four-run lead in the final inning, but outhit the Naples Cubs 7-5 to finish with a 10-10 tie in an action packed game. Tye 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. Aidan Donovan (1-2, 2 RBI, 1 R) hit a line drive double to center in the third. Ryan Dunavant (1-2, 2 RBI, 2 R, 1 HBP) was solid at the plate and in the field. Haven Elias-Branca (1-1, 1 RBI, 1 R) picked up his first hit. Christian Menzel (1-1, 2 BB) scored twice. Daniel Paul (2 H, 3 BB, 1 ER) made his pitching debut to be remembered with two innings of work, including four strikeouts. Phoenix threw out a would-be thief to Donovan, who applied the tag at third base to end the Cubs second inning rally. Sanibel last faced Naples two years ago in a Cal Ripken 12U All-Stars District Championship Tournament in Bradenton. The Naples All-Stars beat the Sanibel All-Stars 28-0 in two innings, with the Naples team letting up considerably against overmatched Sanibel (playing in its first ever sanctioned All-Star game). 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 happen nothing to be embarrassed about. Sanibel is also standing at 1-3 against the Cape Coral Yankees after two highoctane doubleheaders. In the first doubleheader, the teams scored a combined 53 runs, with Cape Coral holding a 31-22 advantage and taking both exciting games. In the second doubleheader, Sanibel improved to outscore Cape Coral 19-17 and split the doubleheader. Christian Menzel blasts a double during Game 2. He went 2 for 5 with an RBI.

10B ISLAND SUN APRIL 18, 2014 Sanibel Sand Sculpturessubmitted by Darrel Larson from MinneapolisMy wife and I stayed at the Sundial Resort and during the first week my daughter and her family came down and we built a sandcastle, whale and lobster. During the second week my son and his family came down and we spent the week making an alligator, hammerhead shark, sea horse and an octopus. The sand sculptures were a big hit with locals and vacationers. Several of the locals stated they have lived on the island for many years and had never seen anything like it. Needless to say, there were a lot of pictures of the sculptures taken during the two weeks. Attached are a few of the sand sculptures. Seahorse Octopus Some of the Larson family members with their sand sculptures Alligator Shark Cycling Safety Notes WHEN STOPPED, CLEAR THE PATH AND ALLOW OTHERS TO BIKE THROUGH Its always frustrating for any path user, cyclist or other, to come across another user who has stopped and is blocking the path with their bicycle. Its also unsafe since its adding yet one more obstacle, another demand upon concentration. So lets be courteous and clear the path when were making that phone call or checking the map.

13B ISLAND SUN APRIL 18, 2014 Bob Janes Memorial Golf Outingsubmitted by Commander Douglas Quelch, USN retired, Tournament DirectorThe 1st annual Bob Janes Memorial Golf Outing was held at Shell Point Golf Clubs Platinum course Wednesday, April 9 in windy, but partly sunny conditions. Sponsored by the Lee Coast Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA), 112 golfers participated in this fundraiser for wounded warriors and other veterans and their families in need. The late Bob Janes, former mayor of Sanibel and Lee County commissioner, and also the first president of the Lee Coast chapter, was honored at this event. His widow, Linda Janes of Sanibel, who attended a chapter dinner the night before, knew her husband would have been so pleased at the way in which his name was remembered. Baileys of Sanibel catered both the breakfast before and the lunch following play. Head catering chef Karl Hamme produced a fruit tart in the shape of an American flag to go with the other smoked delicacies on the luncheon menu. Due to the extreme generosity of numerous local merchants and other citizens, almost every player left with a prize. Unfortunately, no one won the two new Mercedes Benz offered by Mercedes of Fort Myers for holes-in-one, but two lucky golfers did win a free weekend rental of a new BMW, offered by BMW of Fort Myers, for Ultimate Drives by a male and female. Following the award of competition prizes by Shell Point head pro Gary Keating, Sanibel Vice Mayor Doug Congress and Sanibel City Manager Judie Zimomra were introduced. Two wounded warriors from the most recent conflicts were also introduced. Their presence was contrasted by two golfers from World War II; Bill Harrod, 92, a former army sergeant who fought in the South Pacifc, and Bill Reiff, 91, a former P-51 Mustang pilot from the 8th Air Force, who fought in the European theater. One of the guests at the luncheon, 81-year-old USAF colonel John Freeland, former mayor of Rockville, Maryland and father-in-law of Shell Point Village Church pastor Andy Hawkings, was quite proud of the efforts being made to support veterans causes.

Top producers for Sanibel were Dave Doane and Jimbo Gaubatz with three wins each. Harry Christopher, Johnny Graverson and Denny Erickson went 4-0 each for North Fort Myers. When asked what caused the most lop-sided loss in the seven matches played in the series, Sanibel captain Bob Buntrock said, Well, it could have been the tan cloth on the Del Tura tables and having to use tan chalk. Or, it might have been the tight pockets and cushions that catapulted balls past planned position. Or, it may have been playing on bigger tables without having to put quarters in slots. But, all in all, it came down to the fact that they put a better team on the tables and just kicked our butts. The annual match closes the season for the Sanibel shooters. Their league will start play again in mid-October with six teams playing on the only two tables on the island located at American Legion Post 123 on Sanibel-Captiva Road.

Last years event, hosted by the Gulfcoast Chapter of the American Lung Association (ALA), raised $45,000 for the battle against lung diseases such as lung cancer and asthma. Lung cancer is the leading cancer-related death for men and women in the United States. Event organizers hope to top $50,000 this year in part to fund lung cancer research. During stairclimbs, which ALA hosts nationwide, participants raise money by collecting pledges to ascend the stairway in a high-rise tower. High Point Place, the tallest building between Tampa and Miami, has donated access to one of its towers for all five years of the Fight For Air Climb. Participants ascend the high rises 541 steps up 30 floors. We have double the number of climbers and teams registered so far this year compared to this time last year, said Kurt Goerke, regional director of the ALAs Gulfcoast Chapter. The event is growing in popularity, and we hope to turn that interest into record participation and dollars raised. As is the trend nationally, the Fort Myers stairclimb is attracting an increasing participation from local firefighters and police officers who are members of their departments SWAT teams. Firefighters and SWAT officers don their full gear during the climb, providing a healthy competition between neighboring fire districts and law enforcement agencies, while inspiring non-public safety participants. Teams who have registered for the event are invited to begin training, and practice climbs are scheduled weekly on Saturday mornings. The cost to register is $25 and each climber must raise $100.

Marcelli North Fort Myers Whitewashes Sanibel 8-Ball Pool LeagueThe North Ft. Myers Senior 8-Ball League trounced the Sanibel 8-Ball Pool League 21-13 in the annual challenge match played this year at Del Tura Country Clubs four-table billiard room. This puts the North Fort Myers cue men ahead in the series 4-3 and avenges last years loss to Sanibel when the match was played on American Legion Post 123s two coin-op tables. Participating for Sanibel were: Rich Ennis, Dave Doane, Bob Buntrock, Jimbo Gaubatz, Matt Hall, Doc Lubinski, Kevin Pottorf and Kip Johnson. North Fort Myers shooters were: Harry Christopher, Del Tura; Denny Erickson, Del Tura; Johnny Graverson, Pine Lakes; Harry Cowan, Buccaneer Village; Elmer Voigt, Six Lakes; Joe OBrien, Six Lakes; Al Sutherland, Herons Glen; and Gary Grant, Tamiami Village. Top producers for Sanibel were Dave Doane and Jimbo Gaubatz with three wins each. Harry Christopher, Johnny Graverson and Denny Erickson went 4-0 each for North Fort Myers. When asked what caused the most lop-sided loss in the seven matches played in the series, Sanibel captain Bob Buntrock said, Well, it could have been the tan cloth on the Del Tura tables and having to use tan chalk. Or, it might have been the tight pockets and cushions that catapulted balls past planned position. Or, it may have been playing on bigger tables without having to put quarters in slots. But, all in all, it came down to the fact that they put a better team on the tables and just kicked our butts. The annual match closes the season for the Sanibel shooters. Their league will start play again in mid-October with six teams playing on the only two tables on the island located at American Legion Post 123 on Sanibel-Captiva Road.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your personal aspect continues to dominate this week. But try to make time to deal with important career-linked matters as well. A change of plans might occur by the weekend. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Excuses are not really needed for much of the confusion occurring this week. However, explanations from all parties could help in working things out to everyones satisfaction. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) That surprising (but pleasant) recent turn of events continues to develop positive aspects. But be prepared for a bit of a jolt on another issue that needs attention. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Creating a fuss might bring you that attention you want. But are you prepared for all the explaining youd have to do? Better to use more subtle ways to make your bid. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) With education continuing to be a strong factor this week, this could be the time to start learning some new skills that can later be applied to a bid for a potential career move. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You might do well to reconsider some of your current time priorities before you get so deeply involved in one project that you neglect meeting a deadline on another. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) With an important decision looming, you need to be careful about the information youre getting. Half-truths are essentially useless. Get the full story before you act. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Find out what everyones role is expected to be before accepting that workplace proposal. Getting all the facts now could prevent serious problems later on. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A flexible position on a workplace matter could be the best course to follow during the next several days. A personal issue also benefits from an open-minded approach. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Involving too many people in your workplace problem can backfire. Remember: Allegiances can shift. Ask trusted colleagues for advice, but dont ask them to take sides. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Before submitting your suggestions, take more time to sharpen the points you want to make. The clearer the presentation, the more chance it has to get through when submitted. BORN THIS WEEK: Your clear sense of who you are gives you confidence when you need to tackle difficult situations. On April 27, 1667, blind poet John Milton sells the copyright to his masterpiece Paradise Lost for a mere 10 pounds. Once printed, the poem was immediately hailed as a masterpiece of the English language. In 1671, he wrote Paradise Regained, followed by Samson Agonistes. He died in 1674. On April 25, 1859, at Port Said, Egypt, ground is broken for the Suez Canal, an artificial waterway intended to stretch 101 miles across the isthmus of Suez and connect the Mediterranean and the Red seas. When it opened, the Suez Canal was only 25 feet deep, 72 feet wide at the bottom, and 200 feet to 300 feet wide at the surface. Fewer than 500 ships navigated it in its first year of operation. On April 24, 1863, the Union army issues General Order No. 100, which provided a code of conduct for Federal soldiers and officers when dealing with Confederate prisoners and civilians. It became the standard for international military law. On April 22, 1915, German forces shock Allied soldiers along the Western front by firing more than 150 tons of lethal chlorine gas against two French colonial divisions. The Germans, perhaps as shocked as the Allies by the devastating effects of the poison gas, failed to take full advantage, and the Allies held most of their positions. On April 23, 1961, Judy Garland plays Carnegie Hall in what has been called the greatest night in showbiz history. The concert took place on the one night a week that Broadway performers have off -Sunday night -and the audience was therefore a friendly one. On April 26, 1977, Studio 54, the most famous nightclub in the world, opens its doors. The venue became famous for openly and shamelessly excluding all but the most chic, famous or beautiful patrons. Studio 54s golden era lasted less than three years. On April 21, 1980, Rosie Ruiz, age 26, finishes first in the womens division of the Boston Marathon. Eight days later Ruiz was stripped of her victory after race officials learned she jumped into the race about a mile before the finish line. It was Benjamin Franklin who made the following sage observation: It takes many good deeds to build a good reputation, and only one bad one to lose it. If youre like 87 percent of American adults, you use the Internet. The only thing I find surprising about this statistic is that there are 13 percent of adults who [SET ITAL] dont[END ITAL] use it. In a recent survey, more Americans said they would have a hard time giving up the Internet than said theyd have a hard time giving up TV. Those interested in maritime history (and practically everyone else, for that matter) are familiar with the story of the Titanic, which struck an iceberg and sank on the night of April 15, 1912. Its interesting to note, though, that in 1898 a book called Futility, by Morgan Robertson, described an almost identical scenario: The ship in the novel was called Titan, and, like the Titanic, it was trying to break a speed record for crossing the Atlantic. The Titan was declared to be unsinkable, and it didnt have enough lifeboats for all the passengers. On its fictional voyage in the month of April, it struck an iceberg in the North Atlantic Ocean and sank, resulting in the deaths of almost all the passengers. In Ireland, the police do not carry firearms. Their only weapons are batons and pepper spray. In 1943, then-chairman of IBM, Thomas Watson, went on the record saying, I think there is a world market for maybe five computers. If youre afraid of sharks, you might want to consider this tidbit: Every year, more people are killed by bees than by sharks.

27B ISLAND SUN APRIL 18, 2014Goodwill Hosts 4th Annual Golf TournamentGoodwill Industries of Southwest Floridas 4th annual golf fundraiser will be held on Saturday, May 10 at Coral Oaks Golf Course in Cape Coral. Last years tournament successfully raised over $11,000 in gross proceeds to benefit the agencys programs and services and Goodwill is hoping to raise even more at this years event. This tournament is such a fun way to give back to the community, said Goodwills Community Relations Coordinator Madison Mitchell. Coral Oaks is a great course to play and the proceeds raised go right back into Southwest Florida through Goodwills programs and services. The Goodwill Golf Classic will feature a raffle and multiple contests such as Closest To The Pin, 50/50 raffle and a longest drive competition. If the Hole In One challenge has a winner, they will receive a getaway package. The cost to play is just $60 for a single player, $240 for a four-person team and $100 to sponsor a hole. Last year, Goodwill was able to assist over 37,000 people in Southwest Florida, said Mitchell. That was possible because of the support of events like this one. To RSVP or for more information on the Golf Classic, call Madison Mitchell at 995-2106 ext. 2213 or email Players may also register online at www.goodwillswfl. org/golfclassic2014.

28B ISLAND SUN APRIL 18, 2014 Although He Didnt Win The Masters, 20-Year-Old Jordan Spieth Already Is Being Compared To Tiger Woodsby Ed FrankThe riveting spectacle of The Masters is unlike anything else in sports. And if you were one of the tens of millions who watched the final round last Sunday, you no doubt marveled at the booming finesse of winner Bubba Watson and the poise of 20-year-old Jordan Spieth, who tied for second in this famed event. Watson, the lefty whose power fade earned him his second green jacket in three years, has a golf game as if it was designed for the curving fairways of Augusta National. But lets take a closer look at the youngster Spieth, who has catapulted upon professional golf like no other since Tiger Woods. He became the first teenager in 82 years to win a PGA Tour event last summers John Deere Classic was the Tour Rookie of the Year and the first rookie to play for the United States in the Presidents Cup after being selected by captain Fred Couples. Spieth ended the 2013 season 10th on the PGA Tour money list and ranked 22nd in the world after beginning the year 810th. In less than two years, he has won more than $6.5 million and recently established the Jordan Spieth Charitable Trust to assist special needs youths, military families and junior golf. While he has become a hero to young and old alike, Spieths real hero is his 12-year-old sister Ellie, a special needs child. She was born with an undiagnosed neurological disorder. He marvels at her sense of humor and how she keeps him grounded. When Im upset at a tournament or dont finish it off the way I should, it really does put things in perspective, he was quoted recently. Born and raised in Dallas, he graduated from Jesuit College Preparatory School. In high school, he helped in his sisters classroom which, according to his mother, was a turning point in his life. He saw that were not alone, that so many families are going through this. The firstborn of Christine and Shawn Spieth, his athletic prowess comes naturally as his mother played college basketball and his father baseball. His younger brother, Steven, plays basketball at Brown. Jordan showed promise as a quarterback and a left-handed pitcher in his early years before deciding upon golf as a teenager. He attended the University of Texas for three semesters, leaving to turning pro. As a freshman, he led his team to a National Championship. Its natural to compare the highly-talented Spieth to the early career of Woods. For example: Woods was 20 years, 9 months, 20 days when he won his first PGA tournament, the Las Vegas Invitational. Spieth was 19 years, 11 months, 18 days when he won the John Deere Classic. Woods was 21 years, 3 months, 14 days when he played in his first major as a professional, the 1997 Masters. Spieth was 19 years, 10 months, 19 days at the 2013 U.S. Open. Woods recorded his first top 10 finish after three starts; the same for Spieth. And Woods was 16 years, 2 months and 1 day when he played in his first PGA tournament as an amateur; Spieth was 16 years, 9 months and 26 days. Woods has gone on to win 14 major tournaments, second only to the 18 won by Jack Nicklaus. Its far too early to predict whether this phenom will reach those heights. You can be certain, however, the golfing word will be watching. Everblades Fail To Reach Playoffs For The First Time For the first time in the 16-year franchise history of the Florida Everblades, the local hockey team failed to reach post-season play. Despite winning the final three games of the season, two against Reading and the finale against Greenville, Florida finished ninth in the American Conference of the ECHL, two points behind eighth-place Fort Wayne. Only the top eight teams qualify for the Kelly Cup playoffs. The Everblades completed the season with a 37-27-3-5 record.continued on page 32B Jordan Spieth Sanibel Island Golf ClubTwo Person Points GameOn April 12, the Mens League at Sanibel Island Golf Club played a two-person points game one point for a net bogie, two points for a net par, three points for a net birdie and four points for a net eagle. The winners with a score of 93 were Rich Rompala and Mike Zembko. Rompala shot his best game of the season with a gross score of 74, which included one under par on the back nine, and Zembko had one of his best rounds with a net double eagle on the 10th hole. In second place was the twosome of Rene Lohser and Phil Pilibosian with a score of 86. Lohser had one of his best rounds of the season with a first-ever net double eagle on the 18th hole (his home is on that hole). Pilibosian played his usual steady game and contributed points on every hole. Third place went to Bruce Cutler and Jerry Mader with a score of 85. Cutlers long drives and steady putting and one of Maders best rounds accounted for their good score (in spite of the fact that Maders elbow hurt on most shots and will be operated on April 14). Because there were only two men to a team, a fourth place was awarded to Jim Sauer and Chuck Bye, who had a score of 79 points. They played OK and were glad that a fourth place was included.

32B ISLAND SUN APRIL 18, 2014 School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My daughter keeps talking about a new movie called Divergent and her teacher is sending home notes about how they are working on divergent thinking in class. I dont want my daughter spending school time on this movie. Do you think this is a problem? Katie M., Fort Myers, Florida Katie, I do not believe these two things are the same. The movie Divergent is based on a recent popular book about a dystopian society, while divergent thinking has been around for a quite a while. The psychologist JP Guilford first invented the terms convergent thinking and divergent thinking in 1967. Divergent thinking is considered a valuable way to introduce and develop creativity, to go beyond rote thinking and learn how to appreciate various points of view. According to cognitive psychologist Dr. Mark A. Smith, divergent thinking is the process of generating multiple related ideas for a given topic or solutions to a problem. Divergent thinking occurs in a spontaneous, free-flowing, non-linear manner. The word divergent is partly defined as tending to be different or develop in different directions. Sometimes divergent thinking is called thinking outside the box. Convergent thinking, on the other hand, requires one to restrict ideas to those that might be correct or the best solution to a problem. Studies suggest that, as children, we are very strong divergent thinkers but our ability to think divergently decreases significantly as we become adults, which is problematic. Our children need to learn and be able to think both convergently and divergently. Students must have the convergent thinking skills to use logical and evaluative thinking to critique and narrow ideas to make crucial and wellformed decisions after evaluating a range of ideas, information. They also need the ability to elaborate, and think of diverse and original ideas with fluency and speed. Children need experience with both types of thinking in order to be skilled at solving a wide variety of problems effectively. There are many complaints about the current state of education that center on the standardized testing now required. Complaints typically focus on the huge number of tests kids must take and that these tests seem only to value convergent thinking and the production of the one, and only, right answer. There are many who say that the current school model encourages students to adopt rigid mental models of how things work, encourage rote thinking and discourage creative thinking and problem solving. It should be noted as well that there is a movement in education currently that promotes creativity and divergent thinking as to create more resourceful students who can develop their own solutions to problems. This is a confusing conversation with no one right answer, in my opinion. As stated before, I think kids need to learn both ways of thinking. Guilford said that most of us are better at one than the other, but at least a little of each complements the other. Combine convergent thinking with divergent thinking? Yes! Encourage divergent thinking to find as many possible answers to a particular problem. Encourage convergent thinking to find the best single answer to a problem and practice everyday application of both. 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.

FISH Youth Scholarship ProgramThe FISH Youth Scholarship Program helps FISH clients pay for their childs educational camp sessions, helping them to continue working when their child is out of school during school vacation days and summer months. During the summer months, FISH also provides the childs lunch up to four days a week, depending on the schedule of the program. FISH works with the local public school and the City of Sanibel as a source to identify families in need. Depending on the unique situation of the household, as is determined by the FISH intake process, up to 80 percent of the cost of the program may be funded. All of the lunch costs are funded by FISH. Our goal is to help build economic security for vulnerable families while giving children the opportunity to experience quality care while their parent works. Summer/vacation day programs, now more than ever, play a crucial role in the development of school-age children. The structure that these programs provide is invaluable to the family, said Maggi Feiner, FISH executive director. Summer programs that FISH has developed a relationship with and may partially fund include: BIG ARTS Summer Program Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., grades kindergarten through 12. Childrens Education Center of the Islands Summer Program Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., grades pre-kindergarten. City of Sanibel Summer Recreation Program Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., grades 1 through 8. For more information, go to or call 472-4775. ABWA Outright Grant Scholarship The Sanibel Captiva Charter Chapter of the American Business Womens Association is sponsoring a $1,500 Outright Grant scholarship for 2014-15 through the Stephen Bufton Memorial Education Fund. The Outright Grant program offers junior level (or higher) college students a small scholarship that helps to offset costs associated with their college tuition, books and fees. The amount awarded for each Outright Grant is $1,500. Outright Grant scholarships awarded are non-renewable. Applicants may receive only one Outright Grant each award year. Applicants can be ABWA members or nonmembers; they must be a female U.S. citizen and have completed a minimum of 60 credit hours. The applicant must have achieved a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better on a 4.0 scale. The applicant must be seeking a baccalaureate degree or higher and must be attending an institution authorized to confer degrees at the baccalaureate level or higher in the United States. Contact Lynda Rubenstein, education chair, at or Gayle DeHaan-Garland, chapter president, at to apply for this scholarship opportunity.

Wimmers hurled six scoreless innings Monday night, including 18 straight outs, in a 7-3 win for the Fort Myers Miracle over the Charlotte Stone Crabs. The victory moved the Miracle to a 7-4 season record and into first-place in the Florida State Leagues South Division. Wimmers is now 2-0 in the early season with a miniscule 0.93 ERA. In his first victory, he gave up only one hit while striking out six. Fort Myers is home this weekend at Hammond Stadium hosting St. Lucie for a three-game series.

The time of year when some of our friends and neighbors close up their houses and head north to their summer retreats. Here is a checklist of things that need to be accomplished prior departure. Hope this helps. A couple of weeks before your departure date: Beat the rush and go to the post office and set the date to forward your mail or better yet, go to and fill out their short form online; it is very easy. Touch base with friends and neighbors to let them know about your departure plans, if for no other reason than a farewell get together. Find out when you last had your air conditioner serviced. If you are due, schedule that appointment before you leave and help ensure a trouble free vacancy. Let your other service providers know of your departure plans, i.e. house watch, lawn service, pool service, cable/ phone provider. Quick tip; Comcast has a seasonal plan option that may save you money. Compile lists of things to do and tasks to perform. If you drive north, schedule to have your car serviced. A week prior to departure: Start packing Get together important papers that will go with you, such as property insurance. Let northern friends know of your arrival plans. Plan your route. Make hotel reservations along your route. Make sure hurricane protection is in place or plans are set to have it installed after you leave. Departure day: Turn off water to the house and turn off the breaker that feeds your water heater. Set your thermostat and humidistat for away operation. Check all doors and windows. Double check this checklist and make sure all is done. Have a safe and enjoyable ride home. We will see you when you return. Bryan Hayes is a Sanibel air conditioning contractor.

35B ISLAND SUN APRIL 18, 2014 Gary and Tina have two children, including one adult daughter, Samantha, who is on disability and Medicaid. When Gary and Tina discuss their will, they wonder if Samantha should be disinherited. Instead, Gary and Tina would, at their deaths, leave their entire estate to their son Jerry with instructions to take care of his sister. Thats one way to deal with the problem. Of course, giving all of their estate to Jerry may pose certain problems. What would happen, for example, if Jerry got sick or died before Samantha? If Jerry died and his will left everything to his wife or children, would they be as willing to take care of Samantha? Another alternative would be to leave amounts in a trust for Samantha, since she is unable to manage her own financial affairs. Gary and Tina have to be careful when going down this road. Government benefit programs such as Medicaid have very strict asset and income limitations. The beneficial interest that Gary and Tina leave to Samantha would likely disqualify her from the receiving any further government benefits. In other words, upon the death of the survivor of Gary and Tina, Samantha would no longer qualify for the government benefits she received up to this point. This is true despite provisions of the trust that make any distributions to Samantha discretionary. There is, however, another alternative that Gary and Tina could build into their estate planning documents. Upon the death of the survivor, their will could contain a testamentary trust known as a Special Needs Trust or it is sometimes referred to as a Supplemental Needs Trust. The idea behind a Special Needs Trust is that it would serve to supplement what the government benefits provide but it will not disqualify the beneficiary from receipt of the benefits. The Special Needs Trust accomplishes this by mandating an independent trustee to make distribution decisions, and the authorized distributions under the terms of the document are only for those things that the government wont pay for but do not disqualify the beneficiary.Examples of permissible payments and distributions usually include medical and dental expenses, training and education, rehabilitation, travel to visit relatives, payments necessary for private residential care rooms (as opposed to doubles that the government may only pay for), payments for care managers, food and clothing and such other life necessaries.Federal and state government agencies continue to limit the use of Special Needs Trusts in an effort to disqualify anyone that may have access to assets and income from receiving government welfare and disability benefits. Therefore, the use of a Special Needs Trust that works today may in the future disqualify the beneficiary. Because the Special Needs Trust doesnt actually get funded until the death of the survivor of Gary and Tina in my example, it might be a good idea for their attorney to insert Trust Protector language inside of the document to allow for posthumous changes that might be necessary to comply with ever-changing laws.Yet another alternative is to forgo the government benefits entirely. For those wealthy enough to leave amounts that would allow their special needs beneficiary adequate assets and income to live out their lives in reasonable comfort, wills and trusts might be drafted anticipating that when the inheritance occurs the beneficiary will come off of the government aid entirely. From that point forward, rather than providing a Special Needs Trust that could only pay for limited expenses, a General Needs Trust that is broader in scope could apply. Assuming that Gary and Tina choose to build a Special Needs Trust inside of their estate planning documents, they should be careful about assets that their will or revocable trust does not govern. If Samantha is named as a beneficiary to an IRA account, annuity or life insurance policy, she would likely be disqualified from receiving the government benefits. While there is a way to route those types of assets and accounts through a Special Needs Trust, there are adverse income tax consequences that may apply. Gary and Tina have much to ponder. No choice is right or wrong. Each family ultimately decides what is best considering their individual facts and circumstances. Craig R. Hersch.

37B ISLAND SUN APRIL 18, 2014 Safety For Alzheimers CaregiversThe Alvin A. Dubin Alzheimers Resource Center is offering a safety program for Alzheimers caregivers in Lee County. The Dubin Alzheimers Resource Centers safety program was created to provide caregivers with tools to implement an emergency plan to prevent crises. Each safety program packet includes two components: An emergency plan kit An identification bracelet for the memory-impaired person The emergency plan kit is intended to help eliminate the possibility of a crisis situation if the caregiver of a loved one with Alzheimers disease or a related disorder requires emergency care. The emergency workers who come to rescue the caregiver may not know a memory impaired adult resides in the home, and therefore, may leave the person with Alzheimers alone when they take the caregiver to the hospital. The Safety Program Universal Symbol, included with the emergency plan kit, is designed to alert emergency workers that a memory-impaired person resides in the home. The symbol hangs on the front of the homes refrigerator. The corresponding packet of forms, which contain important emergency contacts and care instructions provided by the caregiver, are located inside the refrigerator. Once a trained emergency worker sees the symbol, he or she will automatically know to search for an Alzheimers client in the house and, using the information in the refrigerator, take appropriate measures to see that care for this person is provided. The Dubin Alzheimers Resource Center caring staff works closely with local law enforcement and emergency workers throughout Lee County to help train them on how the safety program can assist them when they respond to an emergency involving the caregiver of an individual with memory loss. The safety program packet is provided at no charge to caregivers caring for a loved one with memory loss in their homes in Lee County. Each packet contains all the items necessary to participate in the safety program. Instructions to put the emergency plan in place are included with each packet and assistance is available from the Dubin Alzheimers Resource Center. The safety program also stresses the importance of having an identification bracelet for individuals with memory loss to wear at all times. Identification bracelets help local law enforcement identify individuals who are separated from their caregivers and are unable to find their way home or even tell someone where they live due to memory impairment. Each bracelet (or necklace) is engraved with the persons first name or nickname, a code number which matches their application number, the words memory-impaired and the phone number for the Lee County Sheriffs Office. Both the Dubin Alzheimers Resource Center and the Lee County Sheriffs Office maintain records of enrolled persons application numbers and identifying information. Being able to look at a bracelet, make a phone call, and escort the lost person to his/her home reduces the time memory-impaired persons are away from their homes and saves police departments valuable effort. A brochure with an application to obtain a bracelet is included in each safety program packet. The Alvin A. Dubin Alzheimers Resource Center, a United Way agency, provides a variety of services including support groups, a quarterly newsletter, a lending library of books and resource materials, educational seminars and training programs for professionals as well as family caregivers. The Dubin Alzheimers Resource Centers office is located at 12468 Brantley Commons Court in Fort Myers.

38B ISLAND SUN APRIL 18, 2014 deaRPharmacistCurb Your Hungerby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: I am 90 pounds overweight and just began taking the medication Xenical. Is there another drug that works better than this? Are there any supplements you recommend? JM, Dallas, Texas Kudos to you for getting on the path to wellness. This topic could encompass an entire book and if there was one easy answer it would be great but theres not. There isnt a medication that I recommend for weight loss, although the orlistat (Xenical) is commonly prescribed to assist in weight loss. But it is not a fat burner. It is a fat blocker. It reduces intestinal fat absorption by blocking an enzyme called lipase. One way to prevent fat in the first place is to keep your cortisol levels down. Cortisol will rise in the presence of chronic stress, fear and grief and the hormone contributes to belly fat. You can evaluate cortisol and other adrenal hormones with urine and saliva tests. Theres probably no faster way to lose weight than to just eat meats, veggies and nuts/seeds and drink only water, tea or coffee. Testing your thyroid is important because that is often very low, despite normal blood tests. Leptin resistance can cause you to hold on to weight, and leptin can be measured via blood tests too. How to test your thyroid and leptin is discussed in my new book, Thyroid Healthy. When you have adequate levels of thyroid hormone, you can turn food into fuel. As for supplement aids, there are only a handful that can assist you, and I want you talk to your practitioner(s) before taking anything new, because I dont know whats right for you. Ive included a partial list here and if you want the extended version of this article, go to my website In no particular order: Tyrosine An amino acid that is considered a gentle appetite suppressant. It helps you make thyroid hormone, which regulates metabolism and burns fat. Turning calories into energy is important. Unburned calories equals stored fat on you. Tyrosine helps you make dopamine, a happy neurotransmitter that influences appetite. You often see this compound in thyroid supplements and diet aids. Phenylalanine An amino acid that helps you make tyrosine (see above) while also triggering the release of CCK (cholecystokinin), a compound that helps you feel full. Its what we call a satiety hormone. People often take this amino acid before meals. If you take tyrosine, you would not need this and visa versa. People with phenylketonuria should never take this supplement. Avocado extract It comes as a capsule, tablet or powder. Its a gentle appetite suppressant and people say it reduces carb cravings. It should improve your glutathione status. Glutathione is a major liver antioxidant that you want more of. Cumin A spice you can buy at any store that some tout as a natural appetite suppressant activity. Sprinkle it on food. Peppermint tea Drinking peppermint tea with your meal could help you reduce appetite, but be careful, it may exacerbate reflux.

Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: I know diet and exercise are important ingredients to my overall health. What else can I be looking for to feel more fulfilled?A: You might first want to ask yourself what are the important goals in your life? Staying connected with your family, friends, spouse, feeling good about yourself and being there for your children. Finding a spiritual connection or meaning, a positive achievement, wanting success in all areas of your life are all important keys in living an optimal life. People whom I have worked with professionally of all ages and have known personally, I noticed six traits common to individuals who find fulfillment in their health and well-being, bring it into their daily lives and feel success in all areas of life. They thrive under adversity, tend to enjoy life to its fullest, and find success in all areas of their life. They are: 1. Open-minded, willing to look at the facts and broaden their horizons. As the saying goes, minds are like parachutes... they only work when they are open. 2. Willing to make changes. They are open and they let go of old ways of thinking and embracing the unknown until it became the known. 3. Understanding how each change they made in lifestyle gives immediate benefits. They looked better, had more vitality, more stamina, better relationships and felt good about themselves. 4. Able to link what gives them important meaning in their life. It gave them strong and long-lasting motivation to sustain change. They came to understand the happier they were the better their health outcomes and vice-versa. 5. They set their intention to make diet, exercise, stress management and developing better relationships a life long quest. They found other people amongst family and friends who supported their lifestyle changes. They were attracted to people in situations who supported them. They are less interested in situations where people didnt support them. 6. They understood they were investing for the long run in their health. Their dividends were freedom, self-esteem, independence, vitality and better overall satisfaction.

What is better than a warm bath, especially with candles, a good book and a glass of wine? The answer is EEM to beat a potential cold. Remember the benefits of working with the neurolymphatic reflex points discussed in previous columns? Because the lymph system has no pump, there is no way to get the toxins moving from the body unless we move vigorously, but the best way is to rub these points (part of the 5 Minute Routine). Many of the points you will learn to rub today are accessing the lymph system to move out the toxins and you will recognize some of the points right away. When your cold sniffles have turned into a dry cough and fever, our approach is a bit different. So follow the steps below to feel better quickly. Step 1. Rub or thump the K 27 points for one minute while breathing deeply. K 27 are located about one inch below the inside edge of the collar bone and are the first set of points we do as part of the 5 Minute Routine. If uncertain as to the exact location, use the knuckles and rub the entire area. This starts to get all the meridians in the body flowing forward; begins activating all nine energetic systems and jump starts the bodys systems. Step 2. Bend your head back slightly to find the edge of your skull. Locate the middle divot and then move out about two inches on each side. Press or circle these points on both side of the head for one minute. Step 3. Bend your elbow and observe where the skin changes from a darker color to the soft under-skin on the inside of the arm. On the darker skin, more on the top of the arm, press or circle this point with the opposite hand for one minute. This is on the large intestine meridian. Repeat on other side. Step 4. Repeat steps 1-3. Step 5. Press or circle the entire outside of the thighs from the hips to the knees. I use my knuckles and press hard moving from the top to the knees this muscle is governed by large intestine. That is it. You should begin feeling better. Now for the bonus. If you feel that cold coming on, while in the bathtub, let your knees fall apart so they are resting on the tub. Cross your arms and push the elbows into the middle of the inside of your thighs and push your thumbs into the biceps. This helps the congestion drain from your lungs (thumb is the beginning of the lung meridian). Have fun with your energy. Next weeks topic is Experiment with Feeling Your Own Energy. If you have a questions for Karen, email her at SemmEnergyCenter@ Learn more at EEM does not diagnose or cure illness, but working with subtle energies of the body has been shown to help many conditions.

A mother and daughter team, Lizzie is a retired RN and health educator, and Pryce is a licensed psychotherapist in private practice who specializes in the care of elders and people with chronic illnesses. Dear Mom & Me, Our parents had very few friends and stayed to themselves. Sometimes we wondered if they just didnt relate to other couples. Out of the blue, our mother had a brain hemorrhage and was dead in 10 minutes. Our father was devastated. He was extremely lonely and in less than three months he had met a friend of a friend. It is less than a year now and he has turned into a social butterfly. We want him to feel better but this behavior seems so unusual and we are trying to understand. Can you help us? Chris Dear Chris, Many widows and widowers that have had wonderful marriages will try to reestablish a married life soon after the death of their partner. They are trying to replace what they are missing. It is often difficult for family, adult children and friends as the quick interest in reestablishing a close relationship is viewed as disrespectful to the individual who has died. It is important for survivors to create a new life after the death of a loved one. Pryce Dear Chris, People who isolate themselves from others can be very happy people. They enjoy their own company, however, most people enjoy social interchange with others. Your father may have loved to be among others but your mother preferred isolation and he was happy just to be with her. His new lady friend may help him in the social environment and he enjoys her company and having a life he has never had. Loneliness is dreadful and you are fortunate that he has found a friend.
