The seahorse-shaped artwork, created by art instructors Andi McCarter and Tylor Stewart with the assistance of several middle school students, was unveiled on May 14 to the cheers of the entire student body, teachers, staff, volunteers and supporters. It took about two months to complete, said Stewart, who brought the seahorse sculpture home during that period in order to apply grout between the thousands of tiles incorporated throughout the piece. You have to work fast, because the grout dries very quickly. McCarter, an artist known for her mosaic tile creations, praised the students for their continued on page 3 Barbara Von Harten, left, principal of The Sanibel School, unveils the seahorse sculpture named Sapphira with the assistance of Bank of the Islands President Robbie Roepstorff photos by Jeff Lysiak From left, Tylor Stewart, Andi McCarter, Barbara Von Harten, Robbie Roepstorff and Rob LisenbeeThe 3rd annual Ding Darling & Doc Fords Tarpon Tournament held on May 3 topped last years fundraising efforts by netting $41,000 from tournament sponsorships, donations and silent auction proceeds to benefit the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge. The tournament also awarded $23,875 in prize monies to five of 46 participating teams. One hundred percent of the anglers registration fees goes to the awards purse, said tournament organizer Birgie Miller, executive director of Ding Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge (DDWS). Thats why our sponsorship partners are so dear to us. They pay the costs for putting on the tourney and contribute to the charity proceeds. DDWS hosted the tournament along with Doc Fords Rum Bar & Grille of Sanibel Island, Fort Myers Beach and Captiva Island. Tournament social events took place at the Fort Myers Beach location. We cant thank Doc Fords enough for their incredible show of support these past three years, said Don Wildman, tournament chair. Theyve already committed for the 2015 tourney along with our presenting sponsors Diversified Yacht Services and Sanibel Bean.

From page 1Seahorse Statuecontributions to the sculpture. They supplied the name for the seahorse Sapphira which was given because of the sapphire color, she added. School principal Barbara Von Harten, who emceed the unveiling of the sculpture, told a story about the cement pedestal the sculpture stands upon. During construction of the new middle school, the pedestal was accidentally added near the front entrance. According to Von Harten, a droplet of coffee on the blueprints for the school addition was misidentified by one of the crew members. This seahorse is a great mascot, and this has been a perfect project for the school, she said. Its a phenomenal piece of art. The Seahorse Dream fundraiser benefited Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida. As a Gold Sponsor for the fundraiser, Bank of the Islands owned a decorated seahorse sculpture at the conclusion of the event. They agreed to participate if they could choose The Sanibel School as their sculptures decorating artist, and then donate the sculpture to the school because the seahorse is the schools official mascot. Weve done a lot of work with The Sanibel School, said Bank of the Islands President Robbie Roepstorff, a longstanding school supporter. This is certainly one of our favorite projects weve been a part of. The blue-tinged sculpture, which includes tiles containing words like Sanibel, Books, Nature and Dream within the body of the seahorse, is secured to the pedestal by 12 steel bolts. It can be removed in case of an emergency, such as a hurricane. A group of people came together with a vision, which planted a seed of creativity, added Stewart. The community gave this great gift to us, and the kids gave a gift right back to Golisano Childrens Hospital. Its a nice total community effort its all for the kids. Following the unveiling of the statue, the entire group posed together for a photograph surrounding Sapphira, taken by former school resource officer Kurt Schulte, with the assistance of the Sanibel Fire & Rescue Districts ladder truck.

ISLAND SUN MAY 23, 20144 Fourth Graders Visit Sanibel Historical VillageThe Sanibel Historical Village hosted two fourth-grade classes from The Sanibel School recently. On May 14, it was Julie Wappes class, and on May 15, students from Debbie Rileys class toured the museum. Fourth grade is the year when the students study island history and the two classes, totaling around 55 students, arrived with lots of questions, eager to see and touch the things from the past. The museum has been hosting the schools fourth graders for a number of years. Last year, the students sent such charming thank-you notes that we put them in a binder that will stay in the old Schoolhouse for all our visitors to see, said Emilie Alfino, museum manager. Tour guides for this trip were Karl Rodman, vice president of the museum board, and Alex Werner, immediate past president. Both former teachers, they knew just how to get the children involved and excited about learning. It was a pleasure to share our treasures with the fourth-grade students, who turned out to be alert, interested, and very well prepared, Rodman said. Some were fascinated by the ghost story associated with Burnap Cottage. Others were impressed by the photographs of Will Reed and expressed a desire that his papier-mch mannequin be returned to the post office. It was particularly fun to turn the students loose in the garden and watch them pick and devour cherry tomatoes and ripe tangerines. The museum plans to continue this program in the future. Learn more at the Sanibel Historical Museum & Village, open Wednesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. A full guided tour takes place at 10:30 a.m. at no additional charge, depending on the availability of a docent.

ISLAND SUN MAY 23, 201410 Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellThe invited Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club speaker this week was Nancy Dreher, founder of the Starfish Scholarship Foundation. Established service clubs on the islands seem to be the incubators of ideas for how to solve problems that surface under their watch. Zonta is a case in point. One of their five points of service includes SWOTI Serving Women On The Island being compassionate and involved advocates and volunteers for women on Sanibel and Captiva. Knowing about this program, a call was put in to Zontian Nancy Dreher, seeking help in finding some type of scholarship money to help a young single mother on the island return to school for her masters degree. Most service clubs and non-profits on the islands offer educational scholarship money, but basically those scholarships go to students working toward their undergraduate degrees. Dreher did some research regarding the need that might be present in our community for an opportunity to help women with financial support for education to advance in their career or profession while already in the workforce or thinking about going to back to work. A PowerPoint slide presented by Dreher showed these Sanibel business statistics: Of the 2,100 people employed by island businesses, 1,050 jobs are held by women; 65 percent of island jobs have no benefits, modest pay and are often seasonal. Another slide presented Sanibel School enrollment data. There are 284 households with children under 18, pre-k/kindergarten: 84; grades 1 to 8: 326; single mothers: 17 percent; single fathers: 3 percent; and both parents: 80 percent. This is the statistic that deserves a long look: 20 percent of the children at The Sanibel School are in single parent households, 17 percent headed by single mothers. The need to provide housing, food and other necessities for their families deplete financial resources for continuing education endeavors. Yet, the need for further education may help with future financial stability of these families. These are the nuggets of information that led Dreher to establish a new nonprofit on island, The Starfish Scholarship Foundation. Their mission: Starfish is dedicated to helping women 25 and older, living and/or working on Sanibel and Captiva with educational opportunities to enhance their workplace value, thus improving the quality of life for themselves, their families, and their communities. Starfish is specifically designed to include the non-traditional student, the women with some life experience and possibly a family. Starfish is specifically designed to include the non-traditional student, the woman with some life experience and possibly a family. These women have some work history, but without more education and the right mentor, may never realize their full potential. With this in mind, Starfish will consider granting scholarships to women to attend universities, colleges, technical and vocational schools and accredited on-line programs to obtain needed educational degrees and/or job certification. The Starfish Scholarship Foundation is a perfect example of the axiom, Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day; show him how to catch fish, and you feed him for a lifetime. Oh yes, you have to substitute some of the verbiage in the axiom, but you get the idea. Or a quote used on the Starfish YouTube video, You educate a man, you educate a man. You educate a women, you educate a generation Brigham Young. Fundraising events have taken place to kick-start the scholarship fund and, of course, there will be more to come. Check out the Starfish Scholarship Foundations YouTube video or www. and find out how you can help.

11 ISLAND SUN MAY 23, 2014ASBPA Releases Its Best Restored Beaches For 2014From building sandcastles to walking on the beach with family, Americas beaches are synonymous with celebrating summer. With the beginning of the summer beach season just around the corner, The American Shore and Beach Preservation Association (ASBPA) released its annual list of the nations best restored beaches. This years list provides representation from the west, east and the gulf coasts of the United States. The 2014 winners are: Aquia Landing County Park, Stafford County, Virginia; Cocoa Beach, Brevard County, Florida Iroquois Point Beach, Oahu, Hawaii North Topsail Beach, North Carolina While Americans celebrate beaches by visiting them, few understand what it takes to keep that beach special. ASBPA created the Best Restored Beach award as a way of highlighting the value of restored beaches. Many of Americas most heavily used beaches are restored beaches wide and sandy, providing abundant recreational opportunities for beachgoers. As Americans flock to our nations coastline during the upcoming beach season, most dont even realize they may be enjoying a restored beach, said ASBPA President Harry Simmons, who is mayor of Caswell Beach, North Carolina. Coastal communities have restored more than 370 beaches in the United States, including such iconic beaches as Jones Beach in New York, Ocean City in Maryland, Virginia Beach, Miami Beach, Galveston Island in Texas and Waikiki Beach in Hawaii. For the last 40 years, beach restoration has been the preferred method of shore protection in coastal communities. Beach restoration is the process of placing beach-quality sand on dwindling beaches to reverse or offset the effects of erosion. The three main reasons for restoration are: Storm protection A wide sandy beach helps separate storm waves from upland structures and infrastructure. Habitat restoration Numerous species rely on wide, healthy beaches as a place to live, feed and nest. Recreation Americas beaches have twice as many visitors annually as all of Americas national parks combined. Every year, there are more than two billion visitors to Americas beaches. Beaches contribute an estimated $322 billion annually to the Americas economy. More importantly, for every dollar the federal government spends on beach nourishment, it gets an estimated $320 back in tax revenues. During times of economic hardship, the beach can be an even more desirable vacation destination than other domestic and foreign alternatives, offering families and visitors an accessible and affordable getaway. It is also an employment and tax generator: More than twice as many people visit Americas coasts as visit our state and national parks all of them combined. Each year, governments take in $320 in taxes from beach tourists for every dollar it spends on beach restoration. Well over half of the nations gross domestic product ($7.9 trillion) is generated in 673 counties along the oceans and Great Lakes, according to NOAAs National Ocean Economics Program. To enter the Best Restored Beach competition, coastal communities nominated their projects for consideration, and an independent panel of coastal managers and scientists selected the winners. Judging was based on three criteria: the economic and ecological benefits the beach brings to its community; the shortand long-term success of the restoration project; and the challenges each community overcame during the course of the project. According to Lee Weishar, PhD, chair of the Best Restored Beach Committee responsible for making the selections, The Best Restored Beaches contest can be compared to an old-time beauty contest if you like what you see, you vote for it. I look for commitment and dedication to the project. I want the applicant to make me love his or her beach. For more information on ASBPA, go to, facebook or www.

ISLAND SUN MAY 23, 201414 Birds Eye ViewThe Tao Of The Natural World, Continuedby Mark Bird WestallLast week, I wrote about a physicist, Fritjof Capra, who one day began to see the natural world. Not as you or I would see it, but rather as a world where everything we perceive as having a physical form is, in reality, merely a collection of atoms and molecules constantly colliding with each other, releasing energy in the process and creating new physical forms over time. His epiphany reminded me of when Neo in the movie The Matrix finally became enlightened and was able to see the world, not as we perceive it, but as a constant flow of programming code. OK, I agree that is a little bit far out there, but all I am trying to get across is that everything on this planet, and probably the universe, is intricately and inextricably connected to everything else. When one collection of atoms interacts with another series of atoms, it starts a domino effect that reverberates infinitely throughout the universe. Similarly, when one keystone species (quite often a predator that we dont like) is eliminated from an ecosystem, the cascading effect is felt throughout the entire ecosystem. If that happens in only a few ecosystems, the impact on humanity is probably not that severe; after all, species extinction is a natural part of Life on this planet. But when that type of collapse happens to ecosystem after ecosystem, as appears to be happening right now, the entire balance of life on this planet is put at risk. Let me make a human-oriented analogy. When we let bankers give loans to masses of people who should have never gotten a loan in the first place, and then allowed those bad loans to be marketed to investors, not only did Wall Street eventually collapse, the whole world economy crashed with it. In a global economy, everything is connected and if one country does something foolish, that can affect all the other political systems as well. What is the difference between a stable/unstable world economy and a healthy/unhealthy balance of nature? These different types of systems all follow the same rules; they are all connected to one another! But I mentioned last week that even with my realization that these natural catastrophic ecological collapses were happening all around the world, by reading the preface of Capras book about the Tao of Physics, I actually found reason for hope in the future. I feel that way because, first of all, I want to believe that my species will not go extinct and second, greater enlightenment concerning the natural world may only come to fruition when the human species is forced to understand its connection to all other living organisms on the planet. Unfortunately, with ecosystems failing all around the planet and the political resistance to recognize that a healthy human environment is still dependent on a healthy natural environment, I do not think this type of enlightenment will come without much pain and societal upheaval. I think things will have to get really bad before my species will find the will power and discipline to live a more environmentally-friendly existence.I saw a scientific article the other day presenting the Black Plague as actually a good thing for our species. The scientists argued that the plague had made the human species stronger and better able to deal with new pathogens prevalent in an agriculturallydominated society. Think about it: those humans who were weak towards those types of diseases were weeded out of the system; those that naturally had a resistance were able to live long enough to pass on those genes. We may be headed for a similar bottleneck with our seeming preference of park-like ecosystems that are occupied by very few species and the resulting destruction of the biologically rich environment that existed when we lived in a less technologically advanced society. People like me exist to put the seeds of these ideas into the minds of humans so that when we can no longer deny that we are causing any problems, those ideas can take hold in the minds of the survivors. Every time I take out one of my canoe trips and start telling stories about how humans seem to be losing their ability to really co-exist with the natural environment, I get a little cold chill when that ten year old child turns in his or her seat in the canoe and looks at me and keeps eye contact with me. I can almost see my thoughts and philosophies travel from my mind into the mind of that child. And that gives me hope!

15 ISLAND SUN MAY 23, 2014 An Inside Look At Wildlife Recovery The CROW Picture Show presents informative anecdotes about the native and migratory wildlife species brought to the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, along with photos of patients admitted to the facility. In 2013, CROWs wildlife hospital cared for 3,391 sick, injured and orphaned animals. Of the 200 different species, 60 percent were birds, with 33 percent mammals and seven percent reptiles. 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 Show will be held on Friday, May 23 at 11 a.m. in CROWs Visitor Education Center at 3883 Sanibel-Captiva Road, across from The Sanibel School. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for teens and free for members and children 12 or under. The entry fee also includes access to the Visitor Education Center, which exhibits CROWs efforts to save wildlife through care, education and collaboration.

19 ISLAND SUN MAY 23, 2014 CROW Case Of The Week: Red-Breasted Merganserby Patricia MolloyFound throughout the Northern Hemisphere, the red-breasted merganser (Mergus serrator) is a spectacularly beautiful diving duck. Preferring freshwater lakes and ponds from Alaska across northern Canada for breeding, it spends its winters primarily in and around saltwater from southern California to Florida. In addition to being a strong flier, the red-breasted merganser is a proficient diver. Often seen searching for food alone, this medium size duck is quick to join large hunting parties in areas where fish are plentiful, working together to herd shoaling fish. Amazingly, a redbreasted merganser can propel itself to depths of 30 feet in order to capture fish, tadpoles and crustaceans in its long, brightly-colored serrated bill. The sharp, saw-like projections of its bill are the reason that these birds are frequently (and fondly) referred to as the sawbill duck. Earlier this month, a red-breasted merganser was admitted to CROWs hospital from neighboring J. N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge. As Dr. Heather explained, He came in for a hook and line injury. Radiographs did not show any internal hooks or other problems. Severely depressed and dehydrated, Dr. Heather ordered rounds of antibiotics to stave off infection and pain medications to keep the patient comfortable. It was placed in a quiet room in the hospitals ICU where it received plenty of rest between treatments and meals. Despite its alarmingly grave condition upon admission, the red-breasted merganser, patient #1184, made a rapid recovery. He was treated and released a couple of days later back into the refuge, said Dr. Heather proudly. With the continued, combined efforts of local agencies and concerned residents, Lee countys native and migratory wildlife will continue to prosper. Never underestimate the difference that you, as an individual, can make to impact change. Start by volunteering your time or donating money to support CROW in its mission to rehabilitate sick, injured and abandoned native and migratory wildlife for present and future generations to enjoy. CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Inc.) is a non-profit wildlife hospital providing veterinary care for native and migratory wildlife from our local area. The hospital accepts patients seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mail donations to PO Box 150, Sanibel, FL 33957.

More Windsby Capt. Matt MitchellI know Im starting to sound like a broken record with my weekly crying about the constant wind and just the far from typical May conditions we are experiencing. May is usually one of my favorite months of year to fish our waters; this year, not so much. Hopefully its just a weather thing and everything will really kick into high gear by June. Despite catching some quality fish this week, things in the sound seem to be roughly about a month behind where they should be. Catch and release snook action has been the best action for me this week. Along with the snook in the passes, there have been a few other species mixed in with them, including an occasonal over slot redfish, goliath grouper and a few 20-inch plus trout. Good numbers of snook have made there way into the passes as they get ready to spawn. Im glad to report that 20 to 30 snook days have become a normal trip. Live pinfish and grunts of all sizes worked well in the passes. Rig these baits with a small weight and either drift or cast while anchored cross current. We caught snook to 36 inches on charters this week, along with hooking several real monsters that just could not be turned. While fishing the passes, the lower water tide periods have produced the better bite... although if the water is moving, these fish will generally eat once you locate where they are staged up. Be as gentle as you can when handling these snook. Wet your hands before handling them, try not to use a landing net and watch out for dolphins. These pre-spawn snook are the future of this fishery. Redfish action did get a little better this week, with some huge high tides during periods of south winds. During these often windy periods, we had fast moving rain storms, so I opted to stay close to home working mangrove islands in the southern end of the sound. Both tail hooked pinfish and cut mullet caught these redfish, although we did not catch lots of them in any one place. If you kept working at it and moving around the windblown sides of the islands, all seemed to hold a few upper slot redfish. Most days have simply been too rough to even think about targeting a tarpon unless you where willing to camp out somewhere sheltered from the wind and soak some cut baits. I have heard a few reports of tarpon hooked in the marker 18 area of the southern sound, but personally until the conditions get better, Im done fishing for what is simply not there. There is not a worse feeling than having a tarpon trip scheduled and waking up to strong winds with the sun not even up yet. Most of my tarpon trips this week, we have ended up switching up and going snook fishing until conditions get better. As we are getting closer to June, hopefully conditions finally improve. This years tarpon season has been one of the toughest I can ever remember, with the weather just fighting us every step of the way. Thanks for reading and until next week, Im done crying about it. 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.

23 ISLAND SUN MAY 23, 2014 Shell Of The WeekCommon Jingleby Jos H. Leal, PhD, The Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum Curator and Director of EducationThe Common Jingle ( Anomia simplex dOrbigny, 1853) is one of the most common species found on our very shelly shores. Common Jingles are always iridescent (like mother-of-pearl) and come in an assortment of colors: orange, yellow, white, clear and that lead-gray that is so characteristic of the species. They are bivalves, so there are two halves for each shell. Most of the time, however, shellers find only the top valve: the bottom valve has the hole that is typical for members of the family Anomiidae (see photo) and is less commonly found on our beaches. Common Jingles are permanently attached to rocks or other shells, and the hole on the bottom valve allows for passage of the byssus, the structure that attaches the bivalve to those hard structures. The byssus of Common Jingles is entirely calcified (same material as the shell), unlike the hair-like, fibrous byssus of mussels and Pen Shells. Learn more about Common Jingles at This Week At The Museum Join us for a Bunche Beach Low Tide Beach Walk with museum curator and director of education Dr. Jos H.

ISLAND SUN MAY 23, 201424 Plant SmartConfederate Jasmineby Gerri ReavesConfederate jasmine (Trachelospermum jasminoides) is a woody, twining vine that is not a true jasmine or a native of the southern U.S. In fact, this member of the milkweed family is native to Asia. But it is one of the most popular vines in Florida, indeed, in the southeastern U.S. Lovers of the plant look forward to the springtime blooming period, when waves of heavy scent perfume the air. But before you consider planting Confederate jasmine, make sure you like that intense fragrance. While some people think its heavenly, others find it cloying and intolerable. The vine is also called star jasmine because of its counter-clockwise pinwheel-shaped flowers, which are pure white and about an inch across. It is a fast-grower even invasive producing a thick tangle of wiry stems that exude irritating milky latex when broken. Shiny oval evergreen leaves of about two inches long have tapered points and a prominent midrib. Dubbed Florida-friendly because of low maintenance, drought tolerance, moderate salt tolerance and pest-resistance, it nevertheless can suffer scales and sooty mold. Give it a well-drained spot in full to partial sun. Propagate it from cuttings. The fruit is inconspicuous and pod-like. Highly versatile and easily trained, it can be used to cover fences, posts, screens or trellises. It also serves as a good pot plant or even a groundcover. The flowers will attract bees. However, if benefit to wildlife, not just fragrance, is a priority in your garden, consider vines that are butterfly host or nectar plants instead, such as coral honeysuckle (Lonicera sempervirens), corkystem passionflower (Passiflora suberosa), purple passionvine (Passiflora incarnata) and trumpet vine (Campsis radicans).

Curtain is at 7 p.m. and tickets are $8 for adults and $3 for children. The public is invited. This production of Grease is an abridged version with content suitable for younger audiences. The students are having a ball playing rebellious teenagers at the fictitious 1950s Rydell High School. On Thursday, May 22 at 6:35 p.m., there will be a special pre-show performance by the middle school rock band. The show is being produced and directed by Sanibel School Music Director Joe Angelo. More than 50 students in sixth, seventh and eighth grades are involved in the production. The show also features live musical accompaniment by locals Tom Cooley (drums), Rusty Kupsaw (bass), Dave Dust (guitar), Mike Cooper (guitar), Griffin Kupsaw (piano) and Joe Angelo (saxophone). Performing arts class at The Sanibel School provides experiences ranging from learning musical instruments, singing, painting sets, acting, choreography, and dancing, to running the audio-visual equipment and other crew responsibilities. I am so proud of the hard work and dedication of our students, said Angelo. Since I have been at the school for nine years, this production of Grease is very special to me because this eighth grade class is the first class I ever had as kindergartners. They all hold a special place in my heart. Both Anna Snow and Maikala Thomas said The Little Mermaid was their favorite show to perform at The Sanibel School. My role as Sebastian the crab was fun and challenging. It allowed me to step outside of who I am and explore the life of someone else, said Anna. Maikala said she enjoyed playing Ursula the octopus because shes been a favorite villain of mine since I was a little girl. She also said, Performing arts teaches teamwork and cooperation, it takes everyone working together to produce a fantastic performance. Jennifer Crown said performing arts class has taught her how to project her voice and to not be afraid to stand out. Jennifer also likes roles that make people laugh. Maddie Pezzi and Mark Sheme said, Mr. Angelo was the best music teacher I ever had! All five students said performing arts taught them public speaking skills and confidence. Community support of the Sanibel School Fund and PTA over many years has helped to provide the technical equipment for the performing arts students. The Sanibel School is located at 3840 Sanibel-Captiva Road. Tickets are available from 6:30 to 7 p.m. on the evening of the shows. For more information, call the school at 472-1617.

Other placers included Team Fintastic Charters in second place, Team Fishing Divas in third, Team Operation Open Arms/Jensens Marina in fourth and Team Law & Disorder in fifth. How do four guys, average age 70, who have never participated in a tarpon tournament in their lives, compete against some of the best tarpon fishermen in the world and win? Thats exactly what Team Boomer Sooners did, wrote tournament participant Les Boyle in his post-tourney blog. Prizes were also awarded in amateur, senior, youth and female divisions. Cpl. Jon Carnes, a wounded veteran hosted by Operation Open Arms and Jensens Marina, caught the first tarpon out of the 13 landed that day.

Artist Of The Month Joan KohlBorn in Mankato, Minnesota, Joan Kohl was involved in the arts from an early age. As a child, she took piano and dance lessons and she taught herself how to draw. After high school, she majored in art education at St. Catherine University and studied at Bank Street College of Education and Parsons School of Design in New York City. While her first love is drawing, she studied painting and printmaking lately, with great enthusiasm. Kohl recently retired from teaching high school art after 32 years. Currently, her subject matter is bicycles. She loves the graphic-ness of the frames, handlebars, and wheels. She likes bicycles by themselves and with riders. I get my inspiration from my drawings as well as photographs from bike magazines and books, said Kohl. Joan lives with her husband, Gary, in Brier, Washington and also loves gardening. Check out her latest collection in Fellowship Hall at Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ, located at 2050 Periwinkle Way. Call the church at 472-0497 for available viewing times.

SeasonalISLAND SUN MAY 23, 201430 My Stars FOR WEEK OF MAY 26, 2014ARIES (March 21 to April 19) (March 21 to April 19) An unexpected development could change the Arians perspective on a potential investment. Keep an open mind. Ignore the double talk and act only on the facts. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A surge of support helps you keep your long-standing commitment to colleagues who rely on you for guidance. Ignore any attempts to get you to ease up on your efforts. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Family continues to be the dominant factor, but career matters also take on new importance. You might even be able to combine elements of the two in some surprising, productive way. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A realistic view of a workplace or personal situation helps you deal with it more constructively once you know where the truth lies. Reserve the weekend for someone special. LEO (July 23 to August 22) As much as you Leos or Leonas might be intrigued by the sunny prospects touted for a potential investment, be careful that you dont allow the glare to blind you to its essential details. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A friends problem brings out the Virgos nurturing nature in full force. However, dont go it alone. Allow others to pitch in and help share the responsibilities youve assumed. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A business decision might need to be put off until a colleagues personal matter is resolved. Use this time to work on another business matter that youve been anxious to get to. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Relationships (personal or professional) might appear to be stalled because of details that keep cropping up and that need tending to. Be patient. A path begins to clear soon. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A promotion could cause resentment among envious colleagues. But others recognize how hard you worked to earn it, and will be there to support you if you need them. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Handling a delicate personal matter needs both your wisdom and your warmth. Expect some setbacks, but stay with it. The outcome will more than justify your efforts. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Resist the temptation to cut corners just because time is short. Best to move ahead step by step so you dont overlook anything that might later create time-wasting complications. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Use the good will you recently earned with that well-received project to pitch your ideas for a new project. Expect some tough competition, though, from an unlikely source. BORN THIS WEEK: Your love of family extends beyond your personal life to include others to whom you generously extend your care and affection. On May 30, 1593, playwright Christopher Marlowe, 29, is killed in a brawl over a bar tab. Marlowe was nearly denied his masters degree in 1587 until advisers to Queen Elizabeth intervened, recommending he receive the degree. Marlowes activities as a spy for Queen Elizabeth were later documented by historians. On June 1, 1779, the court-martial of Benedict Arnold convenes in Philadelphia. After a clean record in the early days of the American Revolution, Arnold was charged with 13 counts of misbehavior. Arnolds resentment and his perceived mistreatment by the American Army would fuel his coming traitorous defection. On May 31, 1889, the South Fork Dam collapses, causing a flood in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, that kills more than 2,200 people. At 900 feet by 72 feet, it was the largest earth dam (made of dirt and rock) in the United States, and it created the largest manmade lake of the time, Lake Conemaugh. On May 29, 1922, the United States Supreme Court rules that organized baseball did not violate antitrust laws as alleged by the Baltimore franchise of the defunct Federal League in 1915. The Supreme Court held that organized baseball is not a business, but a sport. On May 28, 1937, the government of Germany -then under the control of Adolf Hitler -forms a new state-owned automobile company, later named Volkswagenwerk. After World War II ended, with the factory in ruins, the Allies would make Volkswagen the focus of their attempts to resuscitate the German auto industry. On May 27, 1941, the British navy sinks Germanys largest battleship, Bismarck, in the North Atlantic near France. Three days earlier, Bismarck had destroyed HMS Hood, the pride of the British fleet. The German death toll was more than 2,000. On May 26, 1959, Harvey Haddix of the Pittsburgh Pirates pitches 12 perfect innings against the Milwaukee Braves, only to lose the game on a two-run double by Braves first baseman Joe Adcock in the 13th inning. It was Spanish philosopher George Santayana who made the following observation: Sanity is a madness put to good uses. On a per-pound basis, your brain uses 10 times the calories as any other part of your body. You might be surprised to learn that the U.S. state that is closest to Africa is Maine. Those who purport to predict the future usually have pretty poor track records. You might be surprised to learn, then, that in 1900, a journalist named John Watkins successfully predicted a number of significant developments that came to pass in the 20th century. In an article in the Ladies Home Journal, Watkins wrote that within the following 100 years, Man will see around the world. Persons and things of all kinds will be brought within focus of cameras connected electrically with screens at opposite ends of circuits, thousands of miles at a span. Also, Hot or cold air will be turned on from spigots to regulate the temperature of a house; ready-cooked meals will be bought from establishments similar to our bakeries of today, equipped with electric stoves, coffeegrinders, egg-beaters, stirrers, meat-saws, dishwashers and the like; and wireless telephone and telegraph circuits will span the world. If you listen to the radio for one hour, you will hear approximately 11,000 words spoken (or sung). It was beloved British author (and, of course, creator of Sherlock Holmes) Sir Arthur Conan Doyle who introduced the sport of skiing to Switzerland, thereby transforming that snowy country into a premier tourist destination. Those who decide to go into goat farming should know that the group of goats theyre raising could be called a flock, a herd, a tribe or a trip. An ounce of mother is worth a pound of clergy. -Spanish proverb THIS WEEK IN HISTORY THOUGHT FOR THE DAY STRANGE BUT TRUE CALL FOR DAILY SPECIALS472-9300 Daily Lunch Specials Salad Bar Take-Out or Eat In Breakfast Lunch Dinner Open Daily 6 a.m. 10 p.m.Restaurant & Deli FINE ITALIAN CUISINEIL TESORO RISTORANTEwww.iltesoro.netOpen 7 days a week 751 Tarpon Bay Road 239.395.4022 Call Ahead Orders239-312-4085or Text-To-Go 239-580-8573website for menu www.loveamongtheflowers.comItalian espresso fresh juice bar & smoothies ice cream pizza sandwiches salads GLUTEN FREE Pizza handmade local art and gifts Among The Flowers

NEWSPAPERSanibel&CaptivaIslands VOL. 21, NO. 48 SANIBEL & CAPTIVA ISLANDS, FLORIDA MAY 23, 2014 B BSECTIONU.S. Navy Submarine Memorial Rededicatedby Jeff LysiakMembers of the United States Submarine Veterans USS Barb Base, Lee County Sheriffs Department, Lee County Board of County Commissioners and local Veterans of Foreign Wars members were all in attendance during the United States Navy Submarine Memorial rededication ceremony, which took place on May 14 in Fort Myers. Located at the intersection of Colonial and McGregor boulevards in Fort Myers, the U.S. Navy Submarine Memorial underwent a major renovation and refurbishment project over the past year. Sanibel sculptor Lucas Century, whose work on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington, DC gained him international acclaim, contributed to the memorial with his artistry. Century etched the names of the 65 submarines (along with the dates the sub was put into service and when it was sunk) which have been lost over the past 114 years, along with the United States Submarine Veterans logo and creed, on three black granite slabs. The brass plate on the original memorial had been destroyed by acid rain and tree sap, said Ken Jordan, a member of the local United States Submarine Veterans chapter, who collected $4,090 to erect the new monument. Donations came from friends, relatives, neighbors, local businesses, members of the American Legion and Elks Club of Cape Coral Post #2596. Veterans from USS Barb Base in Cape Coral, Lee County Sheriff Mike Scott, City of Fort Myers Mayor Randall Henderson, Lee County Commissioner Brian Hamman, BPOE Lodge Exalted Ruler Rosemarie Fallon and the Lee County Sheriffs Departments color guard all participated in the rededication. The United States Submarine Veterans creed is To perpetuate the memory of our shipmates who gave their lives in the pursuit of their duties while serving their country. That their dedication, deeds, and supreme sacrifice be a constant source of motivation toward greater accomplishments. Pledge loyalty and patriotism to the United States of America and its Constitution. Members of the USS Barb Base, Lee County Sheriff Mike Scott, City of Fort Myers Mayor Randall Henderson, Lee County Commissioner Brian Hamman, BPOE Lodge Exalted Ruler Rosemarie Fallon, sculptor Lucas Century and local Veterans of Foreign Wars members attended the United States Navy Submarine Memorial rededication ceremony on May 14 The United States Navy Submarine Memorial is located at the intersection of Colonial and McGregor boulevards in Fort Myers Sanibel sculptor Lucas Century, pictured during work on one of the black granite slabs for the U.S. Navy Submarine Memorial Veterans, guests and local dignitaries at the memorial rededication ceremony last week

4B ISLAND SUN MAY 23, 2014 Recreation Department Recognizes Volunteer Of The Month FrankelThe City of Sanibel Recreation Department has officially recognized Volunteer of the Month Raf Frankel. Frankel began volunteering at the Sanibel Recreation Center in late 2013 by taking a lead role in the development of the pick-up pickleball program. He has greatly enjoyed making new friends, getting to know the recreation center staff and enhancing his coaching skills all while generating an awareness of pickleball. Pickleball is both an under-recognized sport and one that is misunderstood as being mostly for seniors, said Frankel. While true that it is a wonderful game for seniors and those who dont usually see themselves as athletes, pickleball will challenge the skill, speed, reflexes, balance, coordination and court savvy of the most talented sports enthusiasts playing at more advanced levels. Its fun no matter how you play and special because it is so good at crossing generational lines and skill levels. Frankel and his wife, Bonnie, are seasonal residents spending their winters on Sanibel and summers in the Boston area surrounded by family. He has been playing pickleball for eight years and is happy to see that he no longer has to leave the island to play. Frankel is looking forward to the growing popularity of pickleball on the island and hopes to continue to contribute to the sport at the recreation center next winter. Volunteer opportunities are now available. For information on joining your friends and neighbors who serve as Recreation Center volunteers, call 472-0345.

5B ISLAND SUN MAY 23, 2014 Horton Lends Humor, Talent To Race LogoDave Horton, creator of Hortoons, revealed the 6th annual 10K Race 4 FISH logo depicting runners as cute wildlife on the beach with the historic Sanibel Lighthouse in the background. Horton has created the previous four 10K Race logos all bearing the loveable characters from his cartoons and marked with his wit. This year, I made one of the runners a flying pelican, Horton said. Im pretty sure that flying would be considered cheating in a race. Horton has been cartooning since he was a child growing up in Illinois. His father, who worked for the government, would bring home scores of unwanted paper from letterheads to newsletters. Horton would draw on them, as much as he wanted to, he noted. Awarded Best College Comic Strip from his alma mater Illinois State University, Horton went on to be an artist and writer for Hallmark Cards. As a member of the National Cartoonists Society, Horton has had the pleasure of meeting some of the most respected names in cartooning, such as Peanuts creator Charles Schultz. I was playing golf with Charles Schultz and two others, Horton recalled. There was a foursome of cartoonists ahead of us. I hit a long drive that barely missed Mort Walker. I could see the papers now, Cartoonist kills creator of Beetle Bailey. Horton said it would have been fun to meet the late Walt Disney, who is regarded as an international icon in animation. Horton is now creator of Hortoons, a popular comic in which he gives wildlife human characteristics in humorous settings. When he first moved to Florida, Horton was developing a cartoon called Petshop. He tried to sell it to the papers, but they suggested he try a Florida-themed cartoon. Im obsessed with alligators, raccoons, turtles and birds and other wildlife, Horton said. Giving them human characteristics sometimes makes funny conflicts with people. While most cartoonists use computerized drawing pads to create their work, Horton uses the old-fashion technique of brush and ink. His cartoons can be found at, where a complete collection of prints, books and T-shirts is available for purchase. The Hortoon 10K Race logo will appear on the front of t-shirts worn by runners, race posters, as well as make an appearance in each announcement published for qualifying race sponsors. We enjoy the logos Dave creates, FISH vice president and race committee co-chairman John Pryor said. His artistic talent and sense of humor are undeniable. We are grateful for his contribution. The 10K Race 4 FISH is set for October 18 with the start and finish line at The Community House on Periwinkle Way. The race is a main fund-raising event for the non-profit FISH of SanibelCaptiva, Inc., which provides human services programs to those in need who live, work or visit the islands. It is through the tremendous support from businesses and individuals like Dave Horton that allows FISH to fulfill its mission of lending a helping hand to our neighbors in need, added Pryor. There are a variety of 10K Race sponsorship slots available Gold, Silver, Bronze or Friend. For a $500 or more sponsorship, your name or logo will appear on the back of T-shirts featuring the Hortoon race logo and worn by the runners. Anyone who is interested in becoming a race sponsor should contact Nancy and Pete Bender at or 472-5220. Deadline is September 15.

6B ISLAND SUN MAY 23, 2014In Service To The IslandsRotarians Reach Beyond Borders To Do Goodby Jeff LysiakLike many of the service organizations on the islands, the Rotary Club of Sanibel-Captivas members donate time, talent and energy to help their neighbors, their community and the world we live in. But what sets Rotarians apart from other groups, in addition to providing a far-reaching friendship network and supporting causes for which every dollar raised is used directly to meet an identified need, the Sanibel-Captiva club is committed to sharing its efforts both on a local and a global scale. We raise money for many things, with an emphasis on programs which support education, medical and health care, family support and a clean and healthy environment, said Bill Ray, the Sanibel-Captiva clubs incoming president. Half of the money we raise goes to regional and global programs, while the other half stays right here on the islands. Rotarians in the Sanibel-Captiva club which was chartered in 1980 have donated more than $300,000 over the last seven years to benefit individuals and families locally, nationally and internationally. On the islands, it supports many organizations like The Sanibel School, CROW, the Sanibel Fire & Rescue District, SCCF and the Sanibel Public Library. Each year, the Rotary Club of SanibelCaptiva hosts an arts and crafts fair at The Community House, which welcomes more than 100 top-quality artists and some 8,000 to 10,000 visitors annually. In addition, Rotarys annual scholarships are provided to local students and they support the Blessings in a Backpack program which provides food for needy children and their families. And, yes, there are needy families on Sanibel, the clubs website states. Sanibel is not immune to the current economic problems facing this country. Internationally, the clubs impact is even more impressive. Sanibel-Captiva Rotarians support several small organizations in Latin America that provide medical care and help children. These include the El Hogar School in Teguchigalpa, Honduras which provides care and education to abandoned, orphaned and extremely poor children; Clinica Verdi in Nicaragua, a health clinic for mothers and children; and the St. Marcs School in Haiti and the village of Centro Union Aucayo in Peru in support of clean water projects, providing children and families with access to clean drinking and cooking water. Its important to do work in your own community, where there are always areas of need, said Chet Sadler, secretary of the club. But there is a lot of work we do outside of the United States, where Rotary has made a lot of positive impacts. The club also lends aid to the Gift of Life program, where all of the money goes directly to provide medical treatment for children with major heart problems. Money given to The Wheelchair Foundation provides a physically handicapped person in a developing country precious mobility and independence. In all of these cases, Rotarians can clearly see how they are helping individuals. Ray, who initially became a Rotarian in Rockville, Indiana, said that after he moved to Southwest Florida, he was looking to join a club where he could meet new people and make friends, have some fun and do good work. Naturally, he joined the Sanibel-Captiva chapter. Ive met a lot of great people, Ray said. Were making an impact in the community, regionally and internationally. During a recent breakfast meeting, Rotarians gathered for camaraderie, engaged in a fundraising raffle, shared personal stories (during a jovial social interaction called Happy Bucks) and listened to the weekly guest speaker. At the end of the meeting, the group stands and asks themselves The 4-Way Test, adopted by Rotary in 1943: Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build goodwill and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned? When followed, this deceptively simple test encourages us to become better citizens and better people, the website explains, further emphasizing the clubs motto, Service Above Self. Membership in Rotary is by invitation. To be a candidate, you must be sponsored by a current Rotarian. You must be over 21 and a person of good character, business and professional reputation. Candidates are either currently active or retired as a proprietor, partner, corporate officer or manager of any worthy and recognized business or profession. We support a broad range of organizations on the islands, added Sadler. We have a well organized community service committee, which makes it easier to get the word out about what needs to be done we handle parking duties at some events and offer assistance at many local fundraisers. Its part of our makeup to get out there and help. If you are interested in learning more about Rotary, the club meets every Friday at The Dunes Golf & Tennis Clubs clubhouse (949 Sandcastle Road on Sanibel) beginning with breakfast at 7 a.m. The meeting/program begins at 7:30 a.m. and ends before 9 a.m. Visit for more information.

8B ISLAND SUN MAY 23, 2014 Twins Top Three Prospects Sidelined, But Team Shows Big Improvement From Past Three Losing Seasonsby Ed FrankThe three top prospects for the Minnesota Twins outfielder Byron Buxton and infielders Miquel Sano and Eddie Rosario were expected to lift the Twins from the doldrums of the last three years, when the team lost more than 95 games each season. All three were set to begin the season at Class AA New Britain, with the strong possibility they could advance to the Majors yet this year. At the present, however, none of them are even playing. Despite their absence, look at the surprising resurgence of the Twins after 42 games of the 162-game season. The Twins began the week with a respectable 21-21 (.500) record and appeared to have rectified the awful starting pitching that plagued the team for the last three years. They had won five of seven the last week. As for Buxton, Sano and Rosario, they are losing valuable development time for a variety of reasons. Buxton is the consensus top prospect in all of baseball. But he has played just five games this year due to a wrist injury suffered in spring training and reinjured this past week. Sano is considered the top power hitter in the minors. He is out for the year recovering from Tommy John surgery on his injured right elbow. Tommy John surgery is common among pitchers, but rare for position players.continued on page 20B Two CFI Board Members Retire At their May board meeting of the Charitable Foundation of the Islands (CFI), two board members retired after serving the organization and it predecessor organization with distinction for many years. Ginny Fleming had served as president of the Good Neighbor Foundation of Sanibel and Captiva, our predecessor organization and as chair of the grants committee and has been a great contributor. Bob Berendt had served as treasurer and grants committee chair of CFI and also served on the Good Neighbor Foundation. He was a major contributor to the formation of the Charitable Foundation of the Islands when it spun off from SWFCF. Both Fleming and Berendt will surely be missed. Several new board members have been elected over the past year, including Chris Heidrick, Chip Roach and Jeannie Kendall. Kendall serves as Chair of the Grants Committee and both Roach and Heidrick serve on the grants committee. The Charitable Foundation of the Islands was established in 2011 to assist island non-profit organizations and individual island residents and workers in crisis. Recently, CFI became an independent foundation 501c3 to better serve the local island community. Since 2000, CFI and its predecessor have distributed or $3 million in grants and support.

School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Readers, May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Not surprisingly, good mental health in children has been correlated with better life outcomes including higher academic achievement. Here are some facts about children and mental health from the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). Lets support our children by removing the stigma associated with mental health problems and by advocating for more resources for quality mental health care for them. Prevalence of Child and Adolescent Mental Disorders Four million children and adolescents in this country suffer from a serious mental disorder that causes significant functional impairments at home, at school and with peers. Of children ages 9 to 17, 21 percent have a diagnosable mental or addictive disorder that causes at least minimal impairment. Half of all lifetime cases of mental disorders begin by age 14. Despite effective treatments, there are long delays, sometimes decades, between the first onset of symptoms and when people seek and receive treatment. An untreated mental disorder can lead to a more severe, more difficult to treat illness and to the development of co-occurring mental illnesses. In any given year, only 20 percent of children with mental disorders are identified and receive mental health services. Consequences of Untreated Mental Disorders in Children and Adolescents Suicide Suicide is the third leading cause of death in youth ages 15 to 24. More teenagers and young adults die from suicide than from cancer, heart disease, AIDS, birth defects, stroke, pneumonia, influenza and chronic lung disease combined. Over 90 percent of children and adolescents who commit suicide have a mental disorder. In the United States in the year 2002, almost 4,300 young people ages 10 to 24 died by suicide. States spend nearly $1 billion annually on medical costs associated with completed suicides and suicide attempts by youth up to 20 years of age. School Failure Approximately 50 percent of students age 14 and older who are living with a mental illness drop out of high school. This is the highest dropout rate of any disability group. Juvenile and Criminal Justice Involvement Youth with unidentified and untreated mental disorders also tragically end up in jails and prisons. According to a study funded by the National Institute of Mental Health the largest ever undertaken an alarming 65 percent of boys and 75 percent of girls in juvenile detention have at least one mental illness. We are incarcerating youth living with mental illness, some as young as eight years old, rather than identifying their conditions early and intervening with appropriate treatment. Higher Health Care Utilization When children with untreated mental disorders become adults, they use more health care services and incur higher health care costs than other adults. Left untreated, childhood disorders are likely to persist and lead to a downward spiral of school failure, limited or non-existent employment opportunities and poverty in adulthood. No other illnesses harm so many children so seriously. Early Identification, Evaluation and Treatment are Essential to Recovery and Resiliency Research shows that early identification and intervention can minimize the long-term disability of mental disorders. Mental disorders in children and adolescents are real and can be effectively treated, especially when identified and treated early. Research has yielded important advances in the development of effective treatment for children and adolescents living with mental illness. Early identification and treatment prevents the loss of critical developmental years that cannot be recovered and helps youth avoid years of unnecessary suffering. Early and effective mental health treatment can prevent a significant proportion of delinquent and violent youth from future violence and crime. It also enables children and adolescents to succeed in school, to develop socially and to fully experience the developmental opportunities of childhood. 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.

19B ISLAND SUN MAY 23, 2014 The other day, a client asked me, Will my children be taxed on their inheritance? This particular client did not have assets in her estate that would be valued at more than $5.34 million, the current federal estate tax exemption. Since she was also a Florida resident, her estate would not be subject to any state inheritance or death taxes. No, I told her, except the IRA account money will be taxed to them as income when they withdraw it, just as you are taxed as you take distributions from that account. But what about the house? No. Not taxable. The certificates of deposit? No. My regular investment account? No. The distribution of those assets are not taxed as income. Yes, but are they taxed as an inheritance? she asked. Thats when the core of her misunderstanding dawned on me. And I believe that many others harbor the same misunderstanding. Most of us deal with the tax on our income every year when we file our Form 1040s. That tax is computed on our net taxable income, which is calculated as the difference between our gross income and our allowable tax deductions and credits. Gross income includes earnings from employment, profits from our businesses, dividends, interest, traditional IRA and 401(K) distributions and the like. Deductions include payments for our home mortgage interest, charitable contributions and medical expenses, for example. The tax that we pay on our income is therefore a tax on our personal income statements. Estate and inheritance taxes, in contrast, are a tax on our balance sheet at the time of our deaths. Our balance sheet does not describe our net income rather it describes our net worth our assets less our liabilities. Our net worth is calculated by subtracting our liabilities mortgages, credit card balances, etc. from the date of death value of our assets, including our homes, real estate, business interests, partnerships, investment and savings accounts, retirement plans, annuities and life insurance. When determining the estate tax, our net worth our taxable estate is first calculated. Our taxable estate equals the difference between our date of death net worth and allowable estate tax deductions. Examples of allowable estate tax deductions include qualifying distributions to our spouse and charities as well as estate administrative expenses such as legal, accounting and trustee fees. The final amount of our taxable estate is then applied against our available estate tax exemption. The federal estate tax exemption for 2014 is $5.34 million. Any taxable gifts that we made during our lifetime (gifts that exceeded the annual exclusion amount which was $10,000 in prior years but has increased to $14,000) are deducted from our estate tax exemption to arrive at our available exemption at the time of our death. If our taxable estate does not exceed the estate tax exemption, then no estate tax payment is due. So the distributions of our assets our balance sheet items are not taxable as income to our beneficiaries. Note a couple of complexities I alluded to above. Retirement plans, such as Traditional IRAs, 401(K)s, pensions and profit sharing plans and annuities have a double whammy in that they appear both on the income statement, when the beneficiary takes distributions and is therefore taxed on those distributions and the balance sheet as an element of our net worth therefore making those assets subject to estate tax. Another is life insurance. Generally speaking, beneficiaries do not pay income tax on the receipt of life insurance death benefits. Without advanced planning, however, the death benefit of our life insurance policies is an asset that appears on our net worth statement, therefore subjecting the death benefits to estate tax. You might wonder about capital gain taxes. While the distribution of a house, for example, does not create an income tax event, will our beneficiary have to report a capital gain when they sell the home? Here one must understand the step up in tax cost basis that our beneficiaries receive when we die. Because the estate tax is calculated on our date of death fair market values of our assets our beneficiaries receive a new tax cost basis equal to that value. So if the home we leave our beneficiaries is worth $500,000 when we die, but we only paid $200,000 for it, if our beneficiaries sell the home shortly after our death at $500,000 capital gains tax will not apply. There are exceptions to the step up in basis rule as well. Retirement accounts (IRAs, 401(K)s, etc.), annuities and other similar accounts that enjoyed income tax deferral during our lifetime do not enjoy a step-up in basis. Our beneficiaries pay income tax on the distributions. I hope that this clears everything up for you. Dont get lost in all of the exceptions when trying to figure out whether your estate will be taxable. Just look at your net worth. Everything else is details that can be worked out with your advisors when you plan your estate. Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at Will PowerIncome Statement Vs. Balance Sheetby Craig R.

20B ISLAND SUN MAY 23, 2014 Superior InteriorsCreating The Perfect Home Office by Marcia FeeneyGone are the days when you only had the choice of a desk and chair for your home office. Todays home office furnishings options are all but endless. So, first things first. As with any decorating project, you first need to determine what you want to accomplish in your new home office, and then match those needs with the right furnishings. While many people purchase a conventional desk, more and more are requiring extra space. If you fall into this category, you might consider a workstation. With an L-shaped configuration, you should find that it provides approximately twice the work space of a traditional desk. Plus, the storage options are virtually endless cubbyholes, drawers and cabinets are all designed to store office essentials. Another popular workstation option is the office armoire two tall doors open to reveal a drop-down work surface and plenty of storage space. Available in a multitude of design styles and furniture finishes, these popular pieces can easily fit into any design style. Chairs, too, have vastly improved in terms of aesthetics as well as comfort. This is one place you can really put a personal stamp on your home office. Who says you cant work from a traditional wing chair? Or even a country-style Adirondack chair? Once youve determined your style preference, you next need to give careful consideration to the ergonomics. If you spend a majority of your time working at a computer, you may want to opt for a chair with separate adjustments for lumbar and lower back support, arm width and height, seat back angle and seat height. Another extremely important consideration in creating the home office of your dreams is storage. Books, files, mail, magazines and a plethora of other paperwork are essential to any full-fledged office and as we all know every piece of paper deserves its own home. Take stock of how many linear feet of open and closed storage you need right now, then multiply that figure by 25 to 50 percent to allow for future growth. Once youve come to a comfortable conclusion, consider various storage options everything from conventional steel files to traditional wood cabinetry. And finally, dont forget those furnishings that will put the home in home office. Decorative lighting, an ottoman for put-your-feet-up comfort, even a home entertainment unit can add up to an office ready for any job.

She can be reached at Tree West Donates Services To CROWTree West Lawn and Landscape Company donated their entire work day and more than $1,600 in tree trimming services to the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife on May 3. Despite the uncooperative weather, the crew of nine men led by co-owners Jason Madden and David Jadel arrived early at CROW with their ladders, trucks and chainsaws in hand. The work crew spent the entire day trimming overgrown tree limbs and removing dead branches, allowing much needed light to enter the animal compound. This work was badly needed, but the cost was prohibitive, said Steve Calabro, CROWs executive director. We are very grateful to Jason, David and the entire crew for giving up a weekend day to work on our campus. Its part of being a good neighbor and helping out, added Jason Madden. The Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife is a teaching hospital and visitor center dedicated to saving wildlife through state-of-the-art veterinary care, research, education and conservation medicine.

More than 75 people attended the event at the newly renovated Sundial Beach Resort & Spa and were treated to hors doeuvres and wine on the balcony as they listened to music by Dan Confrey. Guests were invited to look around the new salon and private treatment rooms, and sample skincare and cosmetics or browse inspirational apparel and accessories in the lifestyle boutique. The grand opening for our new Lifestyle Spa & Boutique at Sundial was a wonderful success. I was happy to see so many new and familiar faces here for our special evening of Beauty Inside Out, said Casperson, an island resident for more than 20 years. Even though the event is over, we still want to invite all island residents and continued on page 26B Before the grand opening, Kay Casperson, center, conducted an in-depth cosmetics training with her team of lifestyle consultants at Sundial Beach Resort & Spa photo by Mark Meyers From page 8BTwinsAnd Rosario is serving a 50-game suspension for failing a drug test, admitting he smoked marijuana. His suspension is scheduled to end on May 28. Its important time they are missing, said Brad Steil, the Twins director of minor league operations. They will have to make that up. When the Twins left here seven weeks ago at the end of spring training, the team was universally expected to finish last in the American Leagues Central Division. But their climb from the depths of the AL Central is due for several reasons, chief of which is solid starting pitching. Newly-acquired Phil Hughes is 4-1 with a sparkling 3.61 ERA in 47.1 innings pitched. Right-hander Kyle Gibson, the Twins first-round draft pick four years ago, is 4-3 after having hurled 45 innings. He pitched briefly for the Twins last year, but was sent down to Triple A Rochester for further seasoning. In addition to Hughes, the Twins also acquired Ricky Nolasco in the off-season, signing him to a four-year deal for $49 million, the largest free-agent signing in club history. He is one of the most durable pitchers in baseball. He already leads the Twins in innings pitched at 55.2. There are numerous other reasons for the early-season improvement of the Twins. Second baseman Brian Dozier leads the American League in runs scored at 40 and is third in stolen bases with 12. Closer Glen Perkins is atop the American League with 12 saves and catcher Kurt Suzuki, also acquired in the off-season, is among the top 10 hitters in the AL, starting the week with a .312 average. Finally, the multi-talented centerfielder Aaron Hicks, drafted out of high school as the Twins first-round pick in 2008, is finally making good progress by hitting .400 in his last five games. Few would have predicted two months into the season that the Twins would have a better record than the World Champion Boston Red Sox. The struggling Red Sox were 20-23 at the start of the week. Its a long, long season. But for the first time in four years, Twins fans are encouraged. And better times are ahead once Sano, Buxton and Rosario arrive in the big show. Miracle Starts Week One-Half Game Out Of First The Fort Myers Miracle, with a 4-3 record this past week, trailed first-place St. Lucie by just one-half game in the Florida State Leagues South Division as the week began. After losing 4-2 Monday night to the Daytona Cubs, the Miracle will be on the road for eight of their next 10 games at Dunedin and Clearwater. Fort Myers will, however, be home this weekend at Hammond Stadium facing Jupiter on Saturday at 6:05 p.m. and Sunday at 4:05 p.m. Read us online at

22B ISLAND SUN MAY 23, 2014 Rosier: The name that has been serving Southwest Florida for over 60 years 1200 Periwinkle Way, Suite 2, Matzaluna Plaza Sanibel IslandAngela Larson Call me anytime for your business and personal insurance needs on Sanibel and Choosing the Right Insurance Agent Makes all the Di erence Planning For Long-Term Careby Robin L. Cook, Executive Vice President, The Sanibel Captiva Trust CompanyAmong the largest threats to your financial stability and independence are the potential costs of long-term care. Since numerous studies show that more than 50 percent of Americans will need some type of longterm care, it is something we should all consider as part of our financial plan. There are several different ways to address this issue, and each persons individual plan should reflect their financial capacity, personal preference and family resources. One way you can choose to cover the costs of long term care is to self-fund. If you plan to do this, examine your assets to determine how liquid you are, in what order you will liquidate assets, and determine if you actually have enough money to cover the costs. The costs associated with having at-home health care can easily exceed $25 per hour for non-skilled care and can escalate for home health professionals. Another way to defray the costs associated with long-term care is by purchasing insurance. Commonly, families choose traditional long-term care coverage, where they pay an annual premium much like auto insurance. A second option is a combination policy that combines life insurance with a long-term care coverage rider. Many of these policies can be confusing, and the terms and features can vary widely such as when the benefits begin, how long they last, the maximum daily payout and which services are covered. Before you decide on insurance coverage, work with an insurance agent to determine the benefits of the various types of plans, then figure out if the cost associated with the coverage will work within your current budget. Since there are underwriting requirements for most of these plans, your age and your general level of health will drastically affect the premiums you pay. Your family can also be a resource for assistance with long-term care needs. Often times, the healthier spouse, or even children, are able to assist with care. Even if you have those options, however, you have to ask yourself if you need additional help and if you want to burden your spouse or children with the responsibility of caring for your needs. You can also consider moving into a life-care retirement facility. Moving can be an emotional and stressful decision, but can oftentimes be a viable choice for long-term care. There are also tiered retirement communities and centers that can eliminate the need for any additional moves. Many have medical underwriting qualifications, so be sure to research your options as early as possible. You can progress from active retirement living, to extended care for temporary needs, to assisted living, to skilled nursing care, to dementia care and even to hospice care. There is a wide range of costs associated with various communities and centers. Try to find the one that best suits your needs and meets your budget. Planning for long-term care can seem like a daunting task, but you can better secure your future by knowing your options, planning wisely and taking action. Sound long-term care planning not only protects your financial stability and independence, but it may also prove to be the greatest gift you can give loved ones. Talk with your family first, as your discussions can provide the foundation for the plan you eventually craft with the advice and guidance from financial professionals. Insurance Tip Do You Need Renters Insurance?by Angela Larson RoehlA Renters Insurance policy (HO4) is for individuals that dont not own the property they live in, but still need coverage to protect their personal property, as well as their liability coverage in case of fire, theft or they are sued. In some instances, your landlord may (or should) require you to show proof that you have a Renters policy with liability coverage. The policy is similar to coverage of a Condo Unit Owner or a Homeowner policy, however there is no coverage for the building or any additions and alterations. Renters Insurance can be very inexpensive, depending on the amount of coverage you need for your Personal Property and liability coverage. The Renters Insurance policy is rated on the factors of the building you live in, such as frame or masonry construction, the age of the building and if there has been any history of claims at that location or if you have had any claims at any other locations. While most Renter insurance policies include coverage for wind, they do not provide coverage in case of Flood (rising water from the ground), so you would also need to purchase an Individual Flood insurance policy to protect your contents. If you own the building in your personal name, then you cannot apply for a Renters policy, as you will need a policy that provides coverage to protect your building or additions and alterations.

23B ISLAND SUN MAY 23, 2014 deaRPharmacist10 Questions To Ponder Before Taking Medicineby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: What does it mean when it says take on an empty stomach or take with food because I never adhere to those warnings and Im still alive. Does it really matter? JJ, Denver, Colorado It matters in most cases, but not all. With antibiotics, it may be that your medicine reaches a higher blood level when you take it on an empty stomach, but over the course of therapy, it doesnt change the outcome, meaning the pathogens are killed. With other medications, for example sleeping pills, a warning to avoid alcohol is important and should be adhered to because the combination could be fatal. Same thing with certain antidepressants (MAO inhibitors) that cant be combined with cheese, or death could result. For your safety, let me give you the proper questions to ask your doctor and/or pharmacist: 1. What is the name of the condition that you are treating me for? 2. What is the brand name and generic name of the medication that youre prescribing? 3. Do I take it in the morning, or at night, or divide the dose throughout the day? 4. Better with food or empty stomach? 5. About how long before I begin to see results? 6. Is there a less expensive generic alternative? 7. Are there any supplements that could help this medicine work better, or any to avoid? 8. Is it OK to drink wine (if that applies) with my medicine? 9. Will coffee, dairy or mineral supplements inactivate my medicine? 10. How long do I stay on this medication? Some medications are only intended for a few days or weeks, but people remain on them indefinitely. This is the most important question to ask. If the caution label states on an empty stomach that means two hours after you eat, or one hour beforehand. If it states take with food it means to take it while eating or right after. If it says do not operate machinery or equipment that is your clue that your medicine makes you drowsy or clumsy. It means to avoid driving, using a chainsaw, mowing your lawn or anything that requires you to focus. Heres another good rule of thumb: Start low and go slow. With medications, the lowest effective dose is ideal. You dont need to kill a fly with a shotgun and if you try, you could wind up with side effects that you would not experience with a lower dose. And finally, if you notice your medication keeps you up at night, then dont take it too late in the day. Examples of medicines that are best taken in the morning include thyroid medicine, steroids like prednisone, attention-deficit drugs like Ritalin or the fatigue buster Provigil. Examples of medicine that should be taken at night include certain antihistamines (like diphenhydramine), anxiolytics like alprazolam, pain medicines like hydrocodone and muscle relaxers. If in doubt, call your local pharmacist or physician. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

A mother and daughter team, Lizzie is a retired RN and health educator, and Pryce is a licensed psychotherapist in private practice who specializes in the care of elders and people with chronic illnesses. Dear Mom & Me, We moved my mother into an assisted living facility because she was more than I could handle. She has a colostomy and is having great difficulty getting it regulated. I am no nurse and dont seem able to help her. The facility is not helping our stress level because they think nothing of phoning us at 3 a.m. to tell us something that could wait until the morning. I seem to have changed, as all this extra care is robbing me of sleep. I am irritable and resentful and this is causing other family problems. Please help us. Cornelia Dear Cornelia, This is a very common complaint I hear. I have found it is of the utmost importance to work as a team with the assisted living staff. First, you must understand what policies and rules the community must adhere to according to regulatory guidelines. Second, you must within the guidelines set appropriate boundaries or expectations, give positive feedback when things go well, and appropriately discuss areas of concern. I have seen situations where there is positive teamwork with families and staff. If the community your mother is in will not work as a team with you, I suggest you investigate other options. Pryce Dear Cornelia, In spite of our very best efforts, sometimes the solutions to our problems just dont work out as planned. We also can have preconceived ideas that are just not reality. I suggest you and your husband have a meeting with the facility director and express your concerns and disappointments. If you are not satisfied, then try to explore other facilities or consider having day help in your home.

I also want to thank everyone who made this beautiful event possible and all those who came to help us celebrate. It was the perfect end to an already amazing day. Before the grand opening, Casperson presented an all-day cosmetics session to her entire team of lifestyle consultants, some of whom drove down from Caspersons Orlando spa for the special training. Her special guest for the indepth training session was Los Angelesbased beauty forecaster and cosmetics expert Dara Venekeo. I love to provide my team with opportunities to grow stronger, not only as individuals who are perfecting or enhancing their craft, but also as a group. The training event was a lot of fun and we all learned a lot I cant wait to plan our next one, Casperson said, noting that last October she hosted a two-day training event on all of her skincare and cosmetics as well as her brand new line of wellness products. This most recent event focused solely on some of Caspersons newest make-up items. We offer a complimentary cosmetics application with all of our signature spa and salon services, so its extremely important that our lifestyle consultants are always up-to-date and ahead of the curve when it comes to understanding and applying my unique skincare cosmetics, she added. The new Sanibel location joins Caspersons collection of Lifestyle Spas & Boutiques, the first of which she opened on Captiva in 2009, followed by a second location in Downtown Disney Orlando in 2012. Casperson will open her fourth signature location in the Promenade at Bonita Bay in Bonita Springs later this summer.
