Presented by CHR board chair Richard Johnson on Tuesday morning, the commission offered praise for the program in meeting its objectives and overcoming several challenges during the past few years. Below Market Rate Housing is not only alive and well, but successful, said Johnson, filling-in for the absent Kelly Collini, executive director of CHR. Weve made tremendous strides from where we were we got ourselves into this challenge or situation, but were going to get ourselves out of it. Among the highlights from CHRs past year of activities: CHR addressed all previous years notes from the Auditors Report to Management letter, which stated, No financially significant comments noted for the current year. CHR operated in the black since January of 2013, having paid all outstanding debts and eliminated a $30,000 deficit. The CHR/CICLT board of directors designated $60,000 to establish two reserve accounts: $30,000 to establish a rental replacement reserve fund for maintenance and/or replacement of roofs, staircases and other capital projects for CHR rentals buildings. And another $30,000 to establish a Limited Equity Ownership (LEO) appreciation reserve fund to ensure that funding is available to pay for the appreciation owed to LEO owners upon selling their home back to CHR/CICLT.

ISLAND SUN MAY 30, 20144 Zonta Installs New Officers, DirectorsMembers of the Zonta Club of Sanibel-Captiva gathered recently at the home of Linda Robison, club member and Zonta Area 6 director, where Robison formally installed the leadership for the club year 2014-2015, which begins June 1. During the past year, the club has moved to combine two boards that of the club and that of the Zonta Foundation of Southwest Florida, the clubs 501(c)3 for simpler administration and recordkeeping. For the first time, the members of the club board (most of the officers plus the members-at-large) will also function as the foundation board, with the exception of the positions of secretary and treasurer, which are each unique to that board. A seat on the foundation board is also reserved for a representative from the Zonta Club of Fort Myers. Incoming president Robyn Moran presented outgoing president Kris Ritts with an etched vase by Luc Century, and commented in jest that, with the hard work of merging the boards behind them, Zontians can look forward to a year with nothing to do. For this award-winning club that raised over $100,000 from its recent fundraiser, A Peek at the Unique, that is highly unlikely.

ISLAND SUN MAY 30, 20146 Slash Pines Planted By Third Gradersby Jeff LysiakThe annual tradition of giving back to the earth was repeated again last Friday morning at The Sanibel School as both third grade classes planted 40 slash pines near the front of the schools property on Sanibel-Captiva Road. With the assistance of Richard Finkel, environmental educator from the SanibelCaptiva Conservation Foundation, youngsters planted their trees in the center aisle of the parking lot as well as alongside the field adjacent to the covered pavilion. This project started with a field trip to the Pick Preserve, where the children helped plant a number of trees, said teacher Debora Baker. Then for Arbor Day, all of the students received a slash pine to take care of. According to Baker, each student measured, graphed and determined growth averages of the slash pines, which complemented classroom work about trees. On May 23, third graders from both Bakers and Emily Wells classes planted the slash pines they took care of this year. The pupils learned how to remove the tree from its pot, place it in a pre-dug hole, surround it with soil and pack it securely. I liked this project especially planting the trees, said student Lily Doster. One by one, the students took their own trees, and then assisted their friends in planting the slash pines around the parking lot area. I like getting dirty, added Preston Hall, a sentiment echoed by fellow third grader Sammy Rose: Filling in the holes is fun I like patting down the dirt, too. Finkel returned later in the day to water the newly-planted trees, and will monitor their progress throughout the summer.

7 ISLAND SUN MAY 30, 2014 Lily Doster sprays her tree with water, which caught Preston Hall by surprise Kanzius Foundation To Closeby Jim GeorgeFive years after the death of its founder, the Kanzius Cancer Research Foundation will close its doors on June 30. The announcement was made last week by the board of directors of the organization. Islander John Kanzius developed the possible alternative treatment for cancer while living on Sanibel and research has continued for the past 10 years to bring the treatment to fruition. The foundation was started in 2008 and has raised about $17 million for research for the project. The foundations board said it has reached the peak of its progress and funded all of the research of the Kanzius Non-invasive Radiowave Cancer Treatment necessary to launch human trials. Much of that money came from local Southwest Florida donors, although the foundation does not release donor names. Residual assets of the foundation will be divided among Lee Memorial Health System; Erie, Pennsylvania Medical Center; and Baylor University. Kanzius died in 2009 from leukemia related complications. Kanzius, a former radio engineer and broadcast manager, invented a device that uses radio waves to heat and destroy cancer cells targeted with nanoparticles without affecting nearby healthy cells. Although the foundation will cease operations, researchers will submit their application in coming weeks to the Food and Drug Administration to start human clinical trials under the auspices of AkesoGenX, Houston, Texas, owners of the technology patents. The application will focus on pancreatic and liver cancer. If and when the FDA approves human trials, those trials are expected to take place at Lee Memorial Health System, one of five sites. AkesoGenX will cover the cost of human trials, according to Mark Neidig, executive director of the foundation. Lee Republican Women Meeting The Lee Republication Women Federated will meet on Monday, June 9 at The Edison Restaurant, 3583 McGregor Boulevard in Fort Myers. The social will begin at 5:15 p.m. followed by dinner and the program. The program will be a panel discussion on the pros and cons of the marijuana legislation. Cost is $22 to attend.

9 ISLAND SUN MAY 30, 2014 302.569.2399NEW on SANIBEL/CAPTIVA (Residents)Your Piano Teacher Ms. Gina Is Your Community Ready For Hurricane Season?submitted by Ken and Kate Gooderham, ASBPA executive directorsFor coastal communities across the nation (especially those in the Atlantic and Gulf coasts), June 1 holds a special place on the calendar the official start of hurricane season. While hurricanes and coastal storms can strike any time of year, June 1 is the date everyone focuses on for good reason. Conditions can be ripe, preparations need to be started and residents (and others) need to start paying attention to the potential risk. What makes a beach storm-ready? With some exceptions for localized conditions, it means a beach thats sedimentrich and stable, often with high vegetated dunes and elevated structures set back from the wave zone. Now, it may be too late to achieve that this season if your beach doesnt fit that description, but this is a goal you could set for your coast. Thats a target that takes time and planning to achieve, but one that pays off in terms of damage reduction and community recovery. Further, your coastal managers should be looking over the beach with a critical eye looking for vulnerable infrastructure such as roads and utilities as well as littoral weaknesses and likely problems such as hot spots that will need to be shored up or low spots prone to overwashing in even the more routine storm events. That will help customize both preparation and recovery efforts, as well as guide future work to make your coast more resilient overall. Has your community meaning residents, visitors and businesses planned for a post-storm beach profile and coast? They may be surprised at the sand loss, but may need to be reminded the sediment was just moved offshore due to the scouring nature of storm waves, and it will migrate back onshore once waves and currents return to normal. Thats also a good time to educate communities how coastal systems work, and to remind communities of the importance of preevent mitigation for upland properties and infrastructure. Do your coastal residents have a emergency preparedness plan particularly those most at risk? Are their preparations in place securing home and possessions, and the knowledge of local dangers, the expected warnings and local evacuation plans? Do they have a safe place to go or to stay, and the supplies to handle either? Is there a post-storm protocol for restoring services, repatriating residents and returning things to normal? Remember, there are a number of ways a storm can attack your beach and community, and you need to be ready for each of them: Waves The most obvious destructive force on the ground during a storm, scouring away sand and then upland ground, buildings and infrastructure once the protective beach is gone or the storm surge pushed the wave zone landward. Your best defense is to relocate critical infrastructure away from the hazard zone and to have a wide beach and elevated structures, with perhaps some hardening of critical infrastructure such as roadways and bridges in vulnerable areas that cannot be relocated areas. Winds Destructive on two fronts as an assault on structures and infrastructure either directly or by accelerating other wind-borne items as missiles, and as the force which piles up water and waves to push surge shoreward as a storm makes landfall. For the former, good building codes (to enhance building integrity in the face of assault) and removing potential missiles (by cleaning up debris and small items pre-storm) will help. For the latter, locate structures away from the inundation zone and make sure structures and infrastructure are reinforced and elevated with a wide protective beach and high dunes. Surge & Tides Perhaps the most serious destructive force, especially in slow-moving storms that have a lot of time to build their watery momentum before landfall. As was seen in Sandy (a minimal hurricane for wind, but a monster in terms of size and surge), surge and tidal rises can cause flooding problems on both sides of a barrier island. As before, strong elevated structures and infrastructure behind a wide beach make a real difference but also look for unsuspected vulnerabilities, such as low-lying bayfronts subject to flooding or evacuation routes with weak links that will wash out or over too quickly. Rainfall Flooding On top of everything else thats happening, a wet storm wreaks its own special havoc both further inland, as creeks and streams turn into some much larger and low-lying areas because instant lakes, and along the coast, where surge and high tides prevent drainage of rainfall flooding. Look at your areas flood risks and drainage systems particularly those that rely on tidal outfalls to carry away excess water. The most important step you can take, however, is to heed local emergency managers when they tell you how to prepare for storm dangers and what to do to survive an approaching storm. They are more aware of local conditions and vulnerabilities, are working with the most up-to-date information and probably have the best handle on the true nature of the storm situation so listen to them. Experts are eyeing a quieter than normal season in the Atlantic and a stronger than normal for the Pacific thanks to an expected strong El Nino above-normal continued on page 22 A Sanibel Tradition for 38 Years www.CedarChestSanibel.com Feel the Romance of an Earlier Time with Authentic Ancient & Spanish Treasure Coins and Estate Jewelry

Johnson also noted CHR establishing a website (www.sanibelchr.org) as well as a new database for tracking donors and gifts. During discussion of CHRs annual report, which also included long-term goals and objectives, fiscal year 2013 demographics and a vacancy loss report, commissioner Holly Smith asked about the waiting list and procedures the program uses to fill vacancies. Johnson offered a number of details on the process, noting that CHR continues to update its list of potential residents on a regular basis. Following several positive comments from the commission on Johnsons report, the panel approved passing it along to council for consideration. In other business, Director of Planning Jimmy Jordan noted that Tuesdays meeting would be the first to broadcast live via the citys website (www.mysanibel.com), and that new software has been installed that allows citizens to monitor local government meetings either streaming live or via playback. There isnt going to be a video component, Jordan noted, but also explained that instead of having to listen to an entire meeting, people will be able to skip ahead to specific items on an agenda. Were very excited about this software, said Vice Mayor Doug Congress during his council liaison report. He added that the program can be expanded to carry video, and that the first city council meeting that will broadcast audio starts on July 22. Planners Pass Permeable Paver Ordinance On To Councilby Jeff LysiakDuring Tuesdays planning commission meeting, a draft ordinance which would amend a city Land Development Code allowing under certain conditions the use of permeable pavers within the driveways and parking areas of single-family, duplex and triplex residences was introduced. Jimmy Jordan, director of planning, told the commission that according to a study conducted by LaRue Planning and Management Services, the effectiveness of permeable pavers varies with the installation, maintenance and the geographic area due to weather, soil and sub-surface conditions. Permeable pavers without a storage bed are placed only on a thin layer of sand and crushed stone that provides only structural support for the paver surface and has no significant runoff storage volume, the report reads in part. We suspect, with the likely high water table in Sanibel, that permeable paver systems are most likely built without storage beds. Even without storage beds, a portion of the runoff from the pavers can still collect in the surface voids and infiltrate through the sand and crushed stone bed into the soil below. Jordan noted that several considerations associated with permeable paver systems including applicability, installation, maintenance and permeability were investigated, along with how other communities regulations for permeable pavers vary. It is apparent from this study that the use of materials such as sand, shell and gravel as driveways and parking areas can become more compacted and less pervious over a period of many years, the citys staff report reads in part. It is similarly apparent that pervious pavers, when they are properly installed and maintained, can enhance the treatment and filtration of stormwater runoff carrying contaminants and siltation from shell and sand driveways and vehicular parking areas. A draft ordinance amending LDC standards was submitted along with Jordans report. The use of permeable pavers for driveways and parking areas at all new and existing single-family, duplex and triplex residential developments, and the replacement of existing sand, shell, asphalt, brick or concrete driveways and parking areas with permeable pavers, shall be deemed to be 100 percent permeable. Among the provisions are: The pavers are installed to the manufacturers specifications and are not less than 50 percent permeable The slope of such surfaces does not exceed one to 12, vertical to horizontal A vegetated landscaped buffer at least 10 feet in depth is provided on each side of the driveway, unless the driveway is existing, and is located closer than 10 feet to a side property line, and cannot be relocated in order to comply with this requirement, then the buffer on the one side of the driveway can be less than 10 feet in depth The driveway shall not be curbed or blocked along its sides in order to ensure that stormwater is allowed to drain into the adjacent vegetated landscape buffer Where there is a shared use path, the paver driveway must stop at and abut the interior edge of the path in order to allow for a continuous pathway without any changes in either height or texture During a discussion on the proposed legislation, commissioner Chuck Ketteman asked if there was a backlog of applications pending passage of the amended ordinance. Jordan responded that he and his staff anticipate a number of applications coming forward once the ordinance becomes effective, however, no applications were currently pending. A request to look into permeable pavers as they relate to commercial and mixed use properties was also discussed, and commissioners may address the issue at the June 10 meeting. Ketteman made a motion to approve the draft ordinance, which was seconded by Dr. Phillip Marks and approved unanimously, 6-0, with Tom Krekel absent. It will be passed along to council, which is expected to conduct a first reading of the law on June 3. ISLAND SUN MAY 30, 201410

PATRICIA GRACE (MCKEON) MAXEINERPatricia Grace (McKeon) Maxeiner, 89, of Fort Myers, Florida left the loving arms of her family on Friday, May 17, 2014. Patricia was born on July 15, 1924 in Montgomery, Minnesota to Dr. Joseph and Grace (Sullivan) McKeon. Patricia graduated from the University of Minnesota with a bachelor of arts degree and membership in the Phi Beta Kappa honor society. She worked as a social worker in New York City before moving to Edina, Minnesota to marry and raise her family. There, in addition to being a full time mom, she tutored high-risk students in reading and math, and founded the nonprofit corporation the Adoption Option Committee, Inc. (currently known as the highly successful Adoption Option Council of Minnesota). Patricia relocated to Southwest Florida 30 years ago and became a resident of Sanibel Island and later Fort Myers. She served as a volunteer and community leader at The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum, COTI (Committee of the Islands), BIG ARTS, and the Sanibel-Captiva Sail and Power Squadron. She belonged to the parish community of St. Isabel Catholic Church on Sanibel. Patricia will be dearly missed by her loving husband, Dr. SR Maxeiner, Jr. (Bob); daughter, Madeline Maddy Maxeiner and son-in-law, Tom Mahoney; daughter, Margaret Duxbury (David); daughter, Melissa Kodaly (Kryss); and five grandchildren: Nicole Marie Duxbury, Christine Melissa Duxbury, Jacob Han Duxbury, Mischa Fisher (Amber Rockliffe) and Heather Fisher, and the Murphy kids, her treasured nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by one grandson, Jonah T. Fisher, by her brother James McKeon, and her beloved sister and brother-in-law, Mary (McKeon) Murphy and William JD Murphy. Tricia, a steel magnolia, was both fiercely independent and heart-and-soul committed to family. Over her 66-year marriage, she shared many adventures with Bob. Her entire family felt the warmth of her fierce loving protection. From her insight and faith came simple but profound wisdom that provided steady light in times of trial. She could find the ridiculous in the most frustrating or humiliating situation if you listened carefully enough. She did not insert herself into the situation, just offered opinions from the sidelines that could reduce one to hilarity. She never spoke ill of others, no matter what. She was feisty, opinionated, deeply loving, funny, elegant, and a pillar of strength and grace. She will be missed forever. A private funeral service and interment will be held in Minneapolis. A celebration of her life is planned in Minnesota on July 15, 2014, the date of her 90th birthday. Memorial contributions may be sent to St. Isabel Catholic Church, 3559 Sanibel-Captiva Rd., Sanibel, FL 33957; or to The Harry Chapin Food Bank, 3760 Fowler St., Fort Myers, FL 33901.

ISLAND SUN MAY 30, 201414 In Service To The IslandsScreenings Are Cornerstone Of Lions Community Outreachby Jeff LysiakMany people may look upon the Sanibel-Captiva Lions Club as one of the most visible community service organizations on the island. And that is certainly true especially when you consider most of the time, Lions are seen dressed in their signature bright yellow polo shirts and baseball caps. But given that one of the clubs primary goals is to provide free glaucoma screenings (along with screenings for diabetes, blood pressure and hearing), you could say that the Lions main focus no pun intended is ensuring that the community takes care of their eyesight. We do vision and hearing screenings every month at the Sanibel Recreation Center, and theyre open to everyone from preschoolers to adults, said Kurt Peters, first vice president of the San-Cap Lions Club. We also check for diabetes and blood pressure, too. In all, we perform about $350 worth of medical screenings free of charge. In addition, the Lions collect all sorts of eyeglasses clear, prescription and sunglasses included along with eyeglass cases and hearing aids, in working or broken condition. Between 300 and 400 pieces are boxed and shipped to the Lions national processing facility in Indiana, where they are repaired and refurbished, then sent out to clinics in need throughout the United States.

ISLAND SUN MAY 30, 201416 Dangerous By Designsubmitted by Ken Gooderham Florida continues to be the most dangerous state in the nation for pedestrians, and Lee Countys numbers are among the worst for Southwest Florida, according to a new report released by the National Complete Streets Coalition. From 2003 through 2012, 5,189 people were killed while walking in Florida, with 163 of those in Lee County. The report, Dangerous By Design 2014, ranks Americas major metropolitan areas according to a Pedestrian Danger Index (PDI) that assesses how safe pedestrians are while walking. The top four deadliest major metropolitan areas in the country for pedestrians are in Florida Orlando, Tampa, Jacksonville and Miami. The report also found that the majority of those deaths likely could have been prevented with safer street design. While the Cape Coral/Fort Myers metro area is not among the 51 largest metro areas that were ranked by PDI, the report presents data on pedestrian fatalities in every U.S. metro area and every county, including Lee County. According to the report, Lee Countys pedestrian fatality rate was 78 percent higher than the national average during the decade of 2003-12. Lee Countys rate was 2.77 pedestrian fatalities per 100,000 people, compared to 1.56 nationwide and 2.83 for Florida overall. In Lee County, there were 163 pedestrian deaths during the last decade, comprising 16.9 percent of all traffic fatalities -37 percent higher than the national average (12.3 percent), but slightly below the Florida average of 17.7 percent. The report looks at the annual pedestrian death rate (per 100,000 people) for the past five years (2008-12) in the 20 metro areas in Florida, including the Cape Coral-Fort Myers area, and shows that our area ranked in the bottom 20 percent of Florida metro areas for pedestrian death rate (ranked 18th out of 20). This is a major improvement over the 2011 report, when our metro area ranked fifth out of 20 when ranked by fatality rate. A key difference is that the data set eliminates the period of 200507, which saw record high pedestrian fatalities in Lee County. In terms of Lee Countys ranking compared to all 67 Florida counties, Lee Countys pedestrian fatality rate for the 10-year data period covered (2003-12) ranked 31 out of 67 counties, above both the state and federal averages and highest of Southwest Floridas coastal counties. This is a significant improvement over the 2011 report, when Lee County ranked 17th out of 67 counties. While Lee Countys relative rankings within the state have improved, its important to remember that our pedestrian fatality rates and percent of all traffic deaths that are pedestrians far exceed the national averages. Compared to the 2011 Dangerous By Design (which used 2000-09 data), Lee Countys performance made moderate improvements relative to both national and Florida numbers (see attached table). This is tempered by the knowledge that the countys performance worsened in 2013, when Lee County had a record 24 pedestrian fatalities--the highest since 2005 (which saw a record 32 fatalities). While the Dangerous By Design report only focused on pedestrian fatalities, bicycle fatalities are also of great concern -and in fact, Lee Countys performance relative to both the nation and Florida is far worse than our pedestrian record. During the same period (2003-12), bicycle fatalities represented 4 percent of all traffic fatalities in Lee County double the national average and one-third higher than the Florida average. The bicycle fatality rate was 0.66 per 100,000 population three times the national average and 53 percent higher than Floridas average. The majority of pedestrian deaths occur on roadways that are dangerous by design engineered for speeding traffic with little to no provision for the safety of people walking, biking or using public transit. As the report points out, Florida grew in the post-war period, mostly through rapid spread of low-density neighborhoods that rely on wider streets with higher speeds to connect homes, shops and schools roads that tend to be more dangerous for people walking. Seventy-three percent of pedestrian deaths in Florida were on roads where the posted speed limit was 40 mph or greater (compared to 61.3 percent nationally). In Lee County, the percent was even greater 81.8 percent. Pedestrian safety is often perceived as a strictly local issue but, for decades federal dollars have been invested in thousands of miles of state and local roads in the heart of communities. In fact, 68 percent of all pedestrian fatalities over the past decade occurred on federal-aid roads roads that follow federal guidelines and are eligible to receive federal funds. Older adults have the greatest fatality rate of any group, said AARP Florida State Director Jeff Johnson. Although Florida has made strides to address pedestrian fatalities in the last few years, there is clearly much more work to be done to make Florida streets and highways safer for all pedestrians. AARP stands ready to work with Florida state, county, city and advocacy groups to make our streets safer for all. The Dangerous By Design report includes recommendations for federal, state and local officials to help communities save lives and improve the safety and comfort for everyone who uses the roadways. Since the last report in 2011, Lee County has undertaken some of these recommendations. First, the countys adoption of a complete streets policy and implementation plan in 2009 serves as the critical long term framework for making our streets safer for all users. In 2011, the Lee County MPO adopted its first ever countywide bicycle and pedestrian master plan, followed by a countywide bicycle and pedestrian safety action plan in 2013. This action plan includes many improvements highlighted in the national report. The plan also takes a collaborative approach, bringing together transportation, public health, law enforcement agencies and advocates to work on these problems.

17 ISLAND SUN MAY 30, 2014 State Steps Up For Safety As the national report highlights, while the federal government can set the tone for national approach to safety, states have ultimate responsibility for reducing pedestrian and bicycle fatalities and injuries. The year 2011 was a turning point for Florida, when the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) decided the state had to take action to shed its ranking as worst in the nation. In 2011, FDOT Secretary Ananth Prasad launched a statewide pedestrian and bicycle-focused initiative, led by FDOT District 1 Secretary Billy Hattaway. This comprehensive initiative is focused on Floridas top 10 worst regions, which includes Lee County. For the past two years, FDOT has provided additional assistance and resources to help Lee County in improving pedestrian and bicycle safety. Since 2011, there has been a sea change at the state level, with FDOT taking many steps to improve policies, procedures, staffing, and its agencys culture, and Lee County is benefitting from FDOTs leadership, said Darla Letourneau with BikeWalkLee. We are confident that FDOTs initiative will make Florida a safer place to walk and bike; however, the results in terms of reduced fatalities wont show up immediately. Roads that are dangerous by design take years to be modified and improved for pedestrian and bicycle safety, so the task is like turning a battleship, not a rowboat. We are especially looking forward to the soon to be released FDOT complete streets policy and implementation plan and guidance on road diets, context-sensitive-based pedestrian and bicycle design, mid-block pedestrian crossings, and promotion of roundabouts. All of these policies and guidelines will be valuable tools for local agencies working to improve the safety on our streets, added Letourneau. We hope that in the future FDOT will also pursue additional policy changes recommended in report, such as reforms in evaluating roadway performance to account for the needs of all travelers, reforms in policy for establishing speed limits to provide local control, and allowing a wider range of guidelines. Southwest Florida statistics The key now is for each local jurisdiction and agency leaders to implement the approved action plan, said Darla Letourneau with BikeWalkLee, a local coalition working to encourage complete streets in Lee County. It will take commitment and sustained leadership to implement this plan, but it is vital to the safety and quality of life of our citizens that our unacceptably high pedestrian and bicycle fatalities and injuries be greatly reduced. Florida and Lee County have a long way to go to improve the safety for all road users, but were on the right path. We look forward to the day when Florida no longer holds the dubious distinction as the most dangerous state in the nation for both pedestrians and bicyclists.

Link to interactive map of fatalities: www.smartgrowthamerica.org/dangerous-by-design/map. Over the past decade, Lee County has received millions in funding from the federal Transportation Alternatives program (and its predecessor programs), which have supported sidewalk and bike path projects throughout the county that have made it safer for pedestrians, as well as cyclists. In September 2013, the Lee MPO was successful in winning a $10.4 million federal TIGER grant for its complete streets initiative project, which will close gaps in the countys pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure and improve safety of our roadways. Closely tied to the TIGER grant is the Lee MPOs Bicycle Pedestrian Safety Action Plan (BPSAP) adopted in September 2013, aimed at greatly reducing pedestrian and bicycle fatality and injury crashes through a wide range of recommended activities from education, engineering to enforcement.

ISLAND SUN MAY 30, 201418 Two Nesting Sea Turtles Spotted On SanibelMost loggerhead sea turtles come ashore at night to lay their eggs. However, twice last week, females were still on the beach at sunrise, finishing up their nesting duties. On Monday, May 19, Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) sea turtle patrol volunteer Linda Estep was walking her East End zone when she came across a loggerhead finishing up the nesting process. On Wednesday, May 21, John and Pam Debitetto regular visitors from Massachusetts came across a second loggerhead female heading back into the Gulf after nesting on Bowmans Beach. For anyone who comes across a nesting sea turtle, please be aware it is against the law to disturb a nesting sea turtle and it is a federal offense to disturb or interfere with a nest. The photos were taken from a safe distance without disturbing the turtle. Following are some additional guidelines from the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC): Though sea turtles usually nest at night, it is very possible for humans to cross paths with nesting sea turtles and hatchlings on their way to the Gulf. If this happens to you, it is important to stay out of the sea turtles way. Keep your distance, stay quiet, and dont put your hands on or near the turtle. Any distractions may frighten or disorient them, causing a female to return to the ocean before finishing her nest. Light can also cause a major disruption in the natural behavior of the turtles. Dont use any flashlights, flash photography or video equipment. This can cause a female to false crawl or lead her away from the water. SCCFs Sea Turtle Coordinator Kelly Sloan coordinates more than 100 dedicated volunteers who patrol the beaches of Sanibel and Captiva every morning during the May-through-October nesting season.

19 ISLAND SUN MAY 30, 2014 CROW Case Of The Week: Teeny Tiny Turtleby Patricia MolloyEarlier this month, an injured Florida box turtle was brought into CROW by the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF). The non-profit agency which actively conducts studies in area water quality, fish populations, native wildlife populations and native plant growth had been monitoring a select group of Florida box turtles as part of an ongoing study. Like all patients, the young Florida box turtle, now known as #0900, was given a thorough examination upon arrival to the wildlife clinic. He came in at only 126 grams with evidence of a predator attack to the left part of his carapace and a small fracture to his plastron, explained Dr. Kristin. There is a big deficit that is going to take a long, long time to heal. Found exclusively in North America, there are four subspecies of box turtles found in the U.S. Very little overlapping occurs between the subspecies; the ones found exclusively in peninsular Florida are the Florida box turtle (Terrapene carolina baur). Possessing bright yellow and green lines on their carapace (upper shell) and head, this variety of box turtle grows to be approximately 11 cm x 8 cm. Amazingly, some box turtles are believed to have lived to the ripe old age of 100 years! While the ultimate goal for all CROW patients is to be released back into the wild, it is not always possible. Dr. Heather Barron, hospital director, will not release any animal that is not well enough to adequately feed itself or protect itself from predator attack in the manner which nature has intended. While she has not entirely given up hope with regard to this tiny turtle, she is looking into an alternative future for the patient. We might look at finding someone who wants to keep him as an educational animal, because whatever we put over that area to protect him when he goes out into the wild, will eventually fall off. Theres nothing I can permanently do. As he grows, he will grow out of whatever we put on him, added Dr. Heather. Until its future home can determined, CROW will continue to provide critical care for the young box turtle.

ISLAND SUN MAY 30, 201422 The Tarpon Have Arrivedby Capt. Matt MitchellAfter what must have been almost three straight months of windy conditions it finally happened; the wind laid down. Anglers were greeted this week with tarpon fishing conditions we could have only dreamed about for the last month. Slick calm mornings and light afternoon sea breezes are just what the doctor ordered. Although its about a month behind schedule at this point, it sure looks like we are going to have a tarpon season after all this year. With the awesome conditions, it seemed the tarpon appeared and just came out of nowhere. After seeing very few tarpon all month, I saw more rolling fish on one morning tarpon charter than I had seen the whole of May. Slick mirror like conditions made the fish easy to locate from what seemed like miles away. Tarpon guides and anglers are finally smiling again as the month of frustration quickly ended and we are back in rolling fish, just how it should be this time of year. All the usual places had tarpon this week. Good sized schools of fish where reported gulf side from Fort Myers Beach, Knapps Point and out along the outside of Captiva all the way up Cayo Costa. I having been spending my time on good numbers of fish in the northern sound from Redfish Pass up to Cabbage Key, along with a few fish in the middle sound in the Demiere Key area. As the water continues to clear up, tarpon fishing should only get better and better. Returning to a GPS mark on a personal favorite set of sandholes up by Captiva Pass three days in a row, this week we hooked at least two fish every trip. My best morning so far was jumping three tarpon. These tarpon in the sound seemed to be more keyed in on eating live pinfish and crabs presented under a float than the cut bait offerings. Just to watch these tarpon roll and free jump sure makes this fishing much more entertaining and not the grind and boredom it has been for weeks. Another thing that made fishing these tarpon so cool was the variety of size of fish. Tarpon anywhere from around 40 pounds all the way up to 150-pound plus monsters where all in this mix. After landing a smaller tarpon in the 40-pound range without even having to chase it down, the next bite would often be a full sized model that would scream out 200 yards of line within 30 seconds. Twice this week we got to see the tarpon circle and eat our live baits. Talk about making your heart race. Nothing makes me happy like getting a client their first tarpon and this week I got to do it two days in a row. Add to that the fact that twice we had to chase the fish through a pack of anchored up fellow guide friends all trying to do the same thing and it simply just does not get much better. I know we have only had a few calm days in a row but the 10-day weather forecast looks like much of the same as we are getting into our regular weather pattern of light winds and the perfect tarpon fishing set up. The 4:30 a.m. mornings of waking up to howling winds with a tarpon trip booked, knowing your day is pretty much gonna stink before it even starts and will consist of sitting soaking cut baits and hiding from the wind while trying to pull off the next to impossible seem to be over for now. The last few mornings while walking out to the boat at 5 a.m., I have that pep back in my step and am excited about getting out to the tarpon. The long tarpon fishing depression we have all been experiencing is coming to a end as the big numbers we see annually have started to arrive. 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 30, 2014 Shell Of The WeekThe Rough Scallopby Jos H. Leal, PhD, The Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum Curator and Director of EducationDespite the strong attraction lions paws exert on local shellers, my favorite local Pectinidae is the rough scallop, Lindapecten muscosus (W. Wood, 1828). The rough scallop derives its common name from the sculpture of micro-scales that impart a coarse aspect to the shell surface. Rough scallops can be found in many shades of oranges, yellows and reds. In the season 2009-10, rough scallop shells washed ashore in large numbers, mostly in association with the sea sponge Myxilla incrustans (Esper, 1905). The association between the rough scallop and sponge is mutually beneficial, as it affords protection to the scallop and motility to the sponge. Learn more about the rough scallop at http://shellmuseum. org/shells/shelldetails.cfm?id=193. This Week At The Museum Exhibit Chat: This 10-minute presentation will provide an in-depth look to an exhibit daily at 11 a.m. Live Tank Demonstration: See live mollusks up-close and personal. Watch a fighting conch use its foot for locomotion, spy a lighting whelk slam its trap door shut for protection, or witness scallops zip across the tank with the jet propulsion skills.

ISLAND SUN MAY 30, 201424 Birds Eye ViewNew Classification Scheme For Invasive Speciesby Mark Bird WestallThose of us who have spent several years on Sanibel have probably heard about Brazilian pepper and why the habitat managers try so hard to eradicate the species from our wild lands. As an exotic species that originated from a faraway ecosystem, the introduced landscaping plant eventually out-competed the islands native plant community to such a large degree that by the mid-s most of the islands interior freshwater wetlands had become a monoculture of the species. And with lower plant diversity, more complex species declined as well. Yes, it was green, but it wasnt ecologically healthy. Then, the island environmentalists began an effort to fix the ecological mistakes made in the past. We partially restored the ability of the freshwater wetlands to hold and maintain higher water levels during the rainy season by rebuilding the weirs that Mosquito Control had put in place in the early 1960s. And a massive Brazilian pepper eradication program was implemented. The pepper had become so dominant, when the crews began to clear the pepper forests away on SCCF, refuge and city preserved lands, they could use bulldozers in their work and hardly destroy native species. People wrote letters to the editor complaining that the environmentalists were now building parking lots for the tourists on preserved land. Thats how much the pepper had taken over the system; when only the pepper was removed, it looked as though we were preparing those sites for paving. Luckily however, there were thousands of seeds of the native species still viable in the ground where the pepper forest had come to dominate and, combined with seed dispersal from less disturbed habitats, those vacant fields were relatively quickly recolonized within a few years. Sanibels efforts to restore the islands preserved land should be something the whole community can be proud of. Unfortunately, the threat presented by the invasion of exotic species is something the whole world now has to deal with. This issue is such a worldwide problem that scientists from across four continents (Australia, Africa, Europe, North America) have recently proposed a new sort of classification scheme for understanding the risks to biodiversity that alien species represent. This classification is modeled after the approach taken by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List. That list has been used for years to identify those species on the planet most at-risk of extinction. The new Black List classifies invasive or alien species based on the level of impact they have on the recipient ecosystem. A critical need for invasion biology is the capacity to evaluate, compare and predict the magnitudes of the impacts of different alien species, wrote the researchers, led by Dr. Tim M. Blackburn of the Zoological Society of Londons Institute of Zoology, in order to determine and prioritize appropriate actions where necessary. The reasoning goes that humans arent just impacting the worlds biodiversity by driving species towards extinction; we are also moving species beyond their natural geographic ranges, either intentionally, or sometimes, unintentionally. When these exotic species are introduced into a new ecosystem, their impact can range from positive to negligible to negative, and when the impact is negative, it can range from minor to severe; such as it was with the Brazilian pepper on Sanibel. Classifying these species according to the magnitude of the harm they can create is a first step towards creating more effective legislation and prioritizing actions more efficiently. If you have ever left the country and wondered when you came back why the customs form asks if you are bringing plants into U.S. or visited a farm while you were away, now you know why. Some years back, I took out a grad student on one of my canoe trips who was a botanist. After listening to me go on and on about how humans were always messing things up, he told me a story about how when he and his fellow classmates got together during happy hour at their local drinking establishment, they would sometimes come up with some crazy ideas about how to solve some of the worlds ecological calamities caused by humans. One of his classmates made the observation that much of North America was being severely impacted by exotic species introduced from Asia. But then he also noted that Asia was being heavily impacted by introduction of species from North America. Then someone suggested that maybe what should be done was to have the scientists from both continents introduce all the plants and animals from one continent into the other; just trade ecosystems. Then, it was theorized, life would simply start all over again and balance would be reachieved. I really miss those happy hour discussions from my college days. Of course, this idea would not be very practical to implement and was only the fanciful thinking of a few grad students influenced by a few too many libations. But the idea does reinforce my premise that life will survive no matter what we humans do to it. Whether we survive the next hundred years as a species, or the next several million, life will evolve into the niches that the Earths ecosystems provide for it. And as a naturalist, that is a good thing to have faith in. great food good timesJean Le Boeuf food PLACEIsland Restaurant 239-472-0223 Casual Outdoor Dining 1551 Periwinkle Way I 472-7242 Lunch 113 I Happy Hour 36 I Dinner 59:30Dinner reservations suggested DINING SHOPPING COCKTAILS AWARD-WINNING BISTRO CUISINE JEWELRY, CLOTHING, BOOKS & GIFTS FINE WINES, BEERS & HAPPY HOUR MENU Live!

25 ISLAND SUN MAY 30, 2014But I am also a human being concerned about whether my species will be able to continue our comfortable existence on the planet as the worlds ecosystems go through drastic changes. A woman once told me that she did not believe that God would let us go extinct. Maybe not, I said, but God had no problem wiping most of humanity off the planet when Noah built his ark! Wouldnt it be a shame if the human species had to go through a similar bottleneck before we finally understood what the true meaning of living in harmony was all about?

Monofilament Line Is Perilous For Pelicans Fishing is an important part of the Florida lifestyle as well as its economy. In spite of the obvious benefits, this leisure-time activity, on occasion, can lead to problems for birds and other wildlife such as sea turtles and manatees. According to Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) biologists, monofilament fishing line and fishing hooks can entangle these animals, leading to injury and even death. The brown pelican is one species that is especially impacted by monofilament line. These birds frequently spend time looking for an easy meal at piers and other fishing hotspots, where they are often hooked accidently when trying to grab bait off an anglers line. Discarded monofilament line hanging from trees, piers and other structures can ensnare these birds. Once entangled, pelicans can have a difficult time flying and feeding. It is not uncommon to find dead pelicans entangled with fishing line and hooks, said FWC biologist Ricardo Zambrano. If they are not rescued, these birds may suffer for days before succumbing to injury or starvation. Here are some simple things people can do to help protect brown pelicans and other wildlife: Properly dispose of monofilament line. Store unwanted line safely and securely until it can be placed in a recycling bin. Dont leave fishing line unattended, as pelicans may be tempted to steal the bait on the end of the line. Avoid casting near trees, utility lines and other areas where line may get caught. Check tackle frequently for frayed line that may easily break. Do not feed pelicans or other wildlife, since it encourages them to approach fishing boats, piers and anglers. If available, use fish-scrap repositories. If they are not available, discard fish scraps in a garbage can or at home. If you do accidentally hook a pelican, you should avoid cutting the line. Gently remove the hook if you feel confident you can do so without causing harm to yourself or the bird. If you cannot safely remove the hook and line from the pelican, contact a local wildlife rehabilitator. For a list of wildlife rehabilitators in your area, contact any of the FWCs five regional offices or visit MyFWC.com/ Conservation and select How You Can Conserve then Wildlife Assistance.

The unique consortium consists of Lee County, City of Sanibel, City of Bonita Springs, City of Fort Myers, Town of Fort Myers Beach, City of Cape Coral, Charlotte County, South Florida Water Management District, Sanibel & Captiva Chamber of Commerce and SanibelCaptiva Conservation Foundation. The purpose of the campaign is to provide information on how over-fertilization impacts our water quality, our quality of life and the local economy, said Larry Kiker, chairman of the Lee County Board of County Commissioners. We want to encourage Southwest Florida citizens to limit the use of fertilizer or at least apply fertilizer properly. As a result of perceived limited knowledge of the relationship between poor landscaping practices and degraded water in general, the campaign will inform and educate the public about how nutrient loading negatively affects waterways as well as compliance with applicable fertilizer ordinances. To launch the multi-media campaign, a slime monster character was created to spread the word about importance of fertilizing properly. The slime monster symbolizes the effect of over-fertilization and runoff, said Kevin Ruane, mayor of Sanibel. Our consortium is committed to helping inform Southwest Florida on the dangers of feeding the monster. To help publicize the program and message to dont feed the monster, the partnership is utilizing broadcast, print and social media with in-store signage. Organizing the consortium and raising funds for the outreach effort was led by Sanibel City Councilman Mick Denham, who noted that he is pleased with this cooperative effort by all the counties, municipalities and nongovernmental agencies. I hope we can increase the members in the future which will enable us to continue to share this critical message, said Denham. We all must be smarter with the use of fertilizers in our gardens and landscapes, added Kiker. For community fertilizer regulations or additional information, visit www. FertilizeSmart.com.

ISLAND SUN MAY 30, 201430 Poets Corner selected by Tanya HochschildWhite Wings And Perseveranceby Sawyer MichaelsonThe little big bird seagull, Flying down the beach. An orange beak, with white wings. A basic but fitting outfit. Over the sand, a majestic shadow. Under the sun, your big strong brother. Keep on flying. In and back between the waves. Dive down in the water. Pulling out a snack. Look at the little seagull, king of all the fish. Over all the whitecaps, ruler of the seashells. The big man on the sand, The gold star of the beach. Little, but strong, he perseveres, searching for his next adventure. Sawyer Michaelson, a 12-year-old from Minneapolis, Minnesota visits Sanibel annually. He participated in his first poetry reading at age 8 on Sanibel. He is the 2014 recipient of two Keren Or writing prizes, and was the only young writer to place both in the poetry and prose categories. A Frightening Scenarioby Di SaggauI recently heard Florida author Karna Small Bodman speak at Continental Womens Club, where I bought her newest book Castle Bravo. It was so intriguing I read it in one day. The topic is the terrorist threat of an EMP, Electro-Magnetic Pulse. Such an attack would cripple the country resulting in a complete breakdown of society. I contacted Bodman and asked if this could happen and are we prepared if it did? She said, Not at all. Certain government facilities are hardened against an EMP attack but the rest of us are not protected at all. Were completely vulnerable. This is one of the scariest scenarios I can imagine and thats why I wrote about it in Castle Bravo. Im trying to call attention to this very real national security threat. In the novel, White House Director of Homeland Security Samantha Reid receives intelligence about the creation of an Electro-Magnetic Pulse, sending shock waves that would fry all electronics on the ground in its line of sight. It would set us back to the year 1910. We would have no communications, internet, electricity, refrigeration, sanitation or transportation, Bodman said. Dont think our enemies arent researching this option. Our electric utilities need to harden the grids, purchase backup equipment and we also need to harden other facilities. We could do a lot of this for around $2 billion, a mere pittance compared to the utter devastation that would occur. We need to contact our members of Congress as well as our utility companies and ask them to pay attention. Bodman speaks from experience. She served in the Reagan White House for six years, first as deputy press secretary and later as senior director and spokesman for the National Security Council. I was in morning staff meetings in the Situation Room, committee meetings in the Roosevelt and Cabinet Rooms and occasional meetings in the Oval Office, she added. I use all of these settings in my novels. Many authors write stories from the headlines, but when you think about it, headlines are often made in the White House. Those are the stories Im trying to write. I loved reading the quotation from John Adams carved into an oak paneling in the White House: I pray to Heaven to Bestow the Best of Blessings on THIS HOUSE and all that shall hereafter inhabit it. May none but Honest and Wise Men ever rule under this roof. Amen to that. Her descriptions of White House settings and appointments are accurate. I was happy to read that a portrait of Dolley Madison hangs over the fireplace in the Red Room. I just finished reading a biography about this great First Lady. Castle Bravo is a fascinating read. It takes you inside the the hallowed halls of government where decisions are made concerning our nations future. I agree with author Kyle Mills, who said, Bodman has an amazing gift for creating scenarios that terrify and the government background to make them feel so real you find yourself checking the news to make sure they arent really happening. Bodman is working on two more novels. Trust But Verify and Affairs Of State are due out soon. The first features some of the characters from Castle Bravo and the other is first in a series of romantic thrillers with some new White House and State Department characters. Visit www.KarnaBodman.com for more information on all of her books. We invite submissions from local poets. Anyone interested may submit their work via email to tutsie@ comcast.net. Each week, individual work will be showcased. Lets SHOP Till We Drop Collars, Harnesses & Leads Great Pet Toys Pet Beds & Carriers Breed Speci c Items Cat Stuff Too!

My Stars FOR WEEK OF JUNE 2, 2014ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Theres nothing an Aries Lamb likes less than having to tackle a humdrum task. But finding a creative way to do it can make all the difference. A more exciting time awaits you this weekend. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Finishing up a job on time leaves you free to enjoy your weekend without any Taurean guilt pangs. A romantic attitude from an unlikely source could take you by surprise. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Moving in a new career direction might be seen by some as risky. But if you have both the confidence to see it through and the facts to back you up, it could prove rewarding. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Holding back on a decision might be difficult, considering how long youve waited for this opportunity. But until youre able to resolve all doubts, it could be the wiser course to take. LEO (July 23 to August 22) You still need to move carefully where financial matters are concerned. Better for the Lion to move slowly than pounce on a promising prospect that doesnt keep its promises. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A rejection of an idea you believe in can be upsetting. But dont let it discourage you. Get yourself back on track and use what youve learned from the experience to try again. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) The early part of the week could find you looking to balance your priorities between your family obligations and your career responsibilities. Pressures begin to ease by weeks end. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) An associates problem could cause unavoidable delays in moving ahead with your joint venture. If so, use the time to look into another project you had previously set aside. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Although a financial problem could be very close to being resolved in your favor, its still a good idea to avoid unnecessary spending for at least a little while longer. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Support for some unwelcome workplace decisions begins to show up, and continues to build, so that by weeks end, the gregarious Goat is as popular as ever. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Congratulations. Deciding to attend a social function you might have earlier tried to avoid could turn out to be one of the best decisions youve made in a long time. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Getting into a new situation could prove to be a more difficult experience than you expected. Dont hesitate to ask for advice in coping with some of the more irksome challenges. BORN THIS WEEK: Your strong sense of duty makes you a valued and trusted member of your community. Have you considered a career in law enforcement? On June 7, 1692, a massive earthquake devastates the infamous town of Port Royal in Jamaica, killing thousands. A large tsunami hit soon after, putting half of Port Royal under 40 feet of water. In the 17th century, Port Royal was known throughout the New World as a headquarters for piracy and smuggling. On June 4, 1754, 22-year-old Lt. Colonel George Washington begins construction of a makeshift Fort Necessity, near presentday Pittsburgh. The fort was built to defend his forces from French soldiers enraged by the murder of Ensign Joseph Coulon de Jumonville while in Washingtons custody. On June 3, 1800, President John Adams becomes the first acting president to take up residence in Washington, D.C. Unfortunately, the White House was not yet finished, so Adams moved into temporary digs at Tunnicliffes City Hotel near the also halffinished Capitol building. On June 5, 1922, George Carmack, the first person to discover gold along the Klondike River, dies in Vancouver, British Columbia. In 1896, near the confluence of the Yukon and Klondike River, Carmack stumbled across a deposit of gold so rich that he needed no pan to see it: Thumb-sized pieces of gold lay scattered about the creek bed. On June 2, 1935, Babe Ruth, one of the greatest players in the history of baseball, ends his Major League playing career after 22 seasons, 10 World Series and 714 home runs. The following year, Ruth was one of the first five players inducted into the sports hall of fame On June 8, 1945, President Harry Truman issues Executive Order 9568, permitting the release of scientific information from previously top-secret World War II documents. Executive Order 9568 was a stepping stone to future transparency-oriented legislation, including the Freedom of Information Act, passed in 1966. On June 6, 1971, after more than two decades of weekly productions, The Ed Sullivan Show airs for the final time. The show is now remembered most for providing so many iconic moments in the history of televised rock and roll. It was beloved Peanuts cartoonist Charles Schulz who made the following sage observation: Life is like a 10-speed bike. Most of us have gears we never use. If youre like the average American, you will consume 22 pounds of lettuce this year. You might be surprised to learn that some fish can hibernate. During the long, dark winters, the Antarctic cod will burrow under the seabed and stay there for days at a time, cutting its metabolism by two-thirds. The name of the state of Wyoming comes from the Algonquian word chwewamink, which translates as at the big river flat. If you pay attention to politics at all, youve almost certainly heard the term gerrymander used to describe the practice of carving up electoral districts in such a way that one party has an advantage. You probably dont know, though, how that term entered the lexicon. In 1812, a new district in Essex County, Massachusetts, was created, and a journalist thought the twisting boundaries caused the district to resemble a salamander. A cartoon highlighting the resemblance was created, and because the party that did the redistricting was led by Gov. Elbridge Gerry, the practice was dubbed gerrymandering. Even the worlds best high jumper is unable to stay in the air for more than a single second. Before he became a comedian and actor, Bob Newhart worked as an accountant at the Illinois State Unemployment Office. Those who keep track of such things say that Elvis Presley had 18 TVs at Graceland. One of them was installed in the ceiling over his bed. It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring. -Carl Sagan BEST TAKE-OUT ON THE ISLANDS FULL DELI, BAKERY DAILY LUNCH SPECIALS COLD BEVERAGESCall us for your cookout, picnic and party needs.

39 ISLAND SUN MAY 30, 2014 Beautiy Inside OutFive Summer Beauty Tips by Kay Casperson School is out and summer has arrived! Here are some of my favorite tips for a balanced, beautiful summer in Southwest Florida. Go Outside And Enjoy Nature One of my favorite affirmations is I will love and protect nature. Dont take the natural beauty of Sanibel and Captiva for granted embrace and enjoy it every single day. Go on a beach walk by yourself or a bike ride with your friends. Go kayaking or swimming. Explore the beauty that surrounds you and celebrate it with people you love. And dont forget to take time to care for yourself. Treat your trips to the beach like a visit to the spa let the sand and saltwater exfoliate and sooth your skin as you soak up your daily dose of summer sunshine. Get Plenty Of Sun, But Not Too Much One of Mother Natures most beneficial beauty and wellness tools, sunlight can make a positive impact on physical and mental health as long as proper precautions are taken. Moderate sun exposure helps our bodies produce the essential nutrient vitamin D and can be useful in treating various skin conditions (like psoriasis and acne) as well as helping to alleviate depression. On the other hand, too much sun can cause damage to the skin and cause you to overheat. When youre going to be outside or in the sun for long periods of time, make sure youre protecting yourself always remember to use (and occasionally reapply) broad-spectrum sunscreen, wear loose and comfortable clothing, and shade your face and eyes from the sun with a hat and sunglasses. Use Double-Duty Beauty Products Because of the summer heat and humidity, its important to use beauty products that protect your skin and stay put. For an effortless summer look thats perfect for both work and play, I recommend using a lightweight BB cream or tinted moisturizer with SPF protection on the face and neck, lengthening mascara and a waterproof top coat for lashes (use the top coat to tame and set eyebrows too!), and a gorgeous lip gloss (also with SPF protection) in a rich, vibrant jewel tone. Check the label when buying sunscreen and cosmetics with SPF protection, and always look for broad spectrum UVA-UVB protection and mineral ingredients like titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. Protecting skin from harmful UV rays helps to prevent photo damage and delay the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Stay Hydrated And Energized If youre on the go, at work or just relaxing poolside, make sure youre getting all the right nutrients. Fill up on fresh fruits and vegetables, drink plenty of water, and try a daily multivitamin or B-12 supplement to keep your energy up. Staying hydrated is essential for overall wellness and plays an essential role in keeping your skin looking fresh and healthy. Spend Time With Friends And Family Whether its a barbecue, ballgame or a day at the beach, make time to celebrate summer with the people you care about. Find seashells, enjoy sunsets or just relax whatever you do, have a beautiful summer! Beauty and lifestyle expert Kay Casperson lives on Sanibel with her husband, two daughters and dogs. She produces her own inspirational collections of skincare, cosmetics, apparel and accessories, and operates four Lifestyle Spa & Boutique locations (at Sundial on Sanibel, across from South Seas on Captiva, the Promenade in Bonita Springs, and Downtown Disney Orlando).

What in the world has gone wrong with the World Champion Boston Red Sox in 2014? When this week began, the Red Sox had lost a staggering 10 games in a row, their longest losing streak in 20 years. With the second worst record in the American League at 20-29 (.408), the Bosox already had fallen eight games behind firstplace Toronto in the AL East. The last-to-first finish of a year ago was a distant memory as two months into the 2014 season, Boston was once again in last place. Never, never when the team left here two months ago at the end of spring training was such a disastrous season anticipated. The reasons are many for the unexpected collapse. During the 10-game skid, Boston hit a feeble .212 overall. With runners in scoring position, the team batting average was .197 and a mere .207 against right-handed pitching. Last year, the team never experienced anything more than losing three games in a row. The frustration of the day-after-day losses boiled over last Sunday during an 8-5 loss to Tampa Bay at Tropicana Field. After the Rays Yunel Escobar had doubled home two runs to give Tampa an 8-3 lead, he took off for third base in an uncontested swipe of the base. Red Sox catcher David Ross began to bark at Escobar from the dugout and Escobar began to shout back. Then Red Sox left fielder Jonny Gomes, a former Ray, rushed in from the outfielder and shoved Escobar. The benches cleared and when order was restored, Escobar, Gomes and Sean Rodriquez were ejected. Obviously, the uncontested steal with an 8-3 lead by Tampa did not sit well with Boston. But Rays manager Ray Maddon harkened back to Game One of the 2013 AL Division Series between the two clubs. With Tampa trailing 8-2 in the eighth inning, Jacob Ellsbury singled to lead off the inning and then stole second. I did not take exception when they stole on us last year in the eighth inning of the Division Series. I really wish they (Boston) would roll back the tape and look at that more specifically, Maddon said. But Ross countered: I think our whole team took exception to the stolen base down five with two outs in the seventh. He ( Escobar) is in scoring position. I think were just tired of getting beat. Were frustrated. Within minutes of that 10th straight loss, the downtrodden Red Sox learned that Josh Beckett, the former Red Sox pitcher who was traded away two years ago, had pitched a no-hit game that afternoon for the Los Angeles Dodgers. You might remember that the 34-year-old Beckett was dumped by the Red Sox in the deal that also sent Adrian Gonzales and Carl Crawford to the Dodgers in a $275 million salary-saving transaction. Beckett reportedly was the ringleader in the infamous beer-and-chicken-eating episodes during Red Sox games. As bad as the first two months of the season have been for Boston, remember it is a six-month season and there is time to correct the ship. But that course correction must come soon or the Red Sox will fall so far down in the basement they will never see daylight. Miracle Start Week Just 1-1/2 Games Out of First Place After winning four of their last six games, the Fort Myers Miracle started this week with a 28-21 season record and trailed first-place St. Lucie by just 1-1/2 games in the Florida State League South Division. Miracle starter Jose Berrios, a first-round draft pick last year by the Minnesota Twins, pitched Fort Myers to a 6-1 win last Sunday by limiting Jupiter to just one run and seven hits over six strong innings. He struck out seven to raise his strikeout total to a team-leading 52. The 19-year-old Berrios improved his season record to 4-2 with a low 2.55 ERA. The Miracle begin an eight-game home stand tomorrow, Saturday, at 6:05 p.m. against the Tampa Yankees. Tampa is here for four games followed by a four-game series with Lakeland.

49 ISLAND SUN MAY 30, 2014Million Word Readers Get Rewarded At Sanibel Schoolby Jeff LysiakWith incentives including 45 minutes of free video game play, lunch at a local restaurant and a high-speed boat tour around the islands, students from The Sanibel School might not consider that their successful participation in the Million Word Challenge comes with an even more impressive benefit: better grades. Last week, more than 100 pupils including 68 from the elementary school and 41 from the middle school reaped the rewards of completing the challenge. Throughout the day on May 22, youngsters from the schools first through fifth grades were treated to a visit from The Game Guys, a mobile video game truck loaded with the latest arcade and dance-themed games. On May 23, middle schoolers boarded the Sanibel Thriller for a 90-minute boat excursion; repeat challenge winners took in lunch at Captivas Bubble Room. We started the program last year, which brings attention to the importance of reading, said Barbara Von Harten, principal of the school. The main goal of the Million Word Challenge is to motivate students to read more. According to Von Harten, the number of students completing the Million Word Challenge more than doubled from last year. Im very happy when a student reaches one million words, said Von Harten. I think that this program helps develop a lifelong love of reading. This year, one fourth grader, Beru Pierce, exceeded 6.1 million words read. My favorite was the first book in The Hunger Games series, said Beru, 10. Its a very interesting story I like fantasy books the best. Beru, who read three million words as a third grader last year, said that she likes reading for enjoyment, and plans on continuing to read as much as possible this summer. Right now, Im reading one of the Seekers books, she added. Its about bears who go on a quest. Its an interesting story with very descriptive words. Wendy Wassman, the schools reading coach, lauded the pupils who participated in the Million Word Challenge. All it takes is to read 20 minutes per day, said Wassman. It makes a big difference in whether you wind up being in the 90th percentile of students, or the 40th percentile.

ISLAND SUN MAY 30, 201450 Any parent of more than one child knows how different our kids are even if they have the same mother and father and were raised in the same household. Ones an athlete, the other a bookworm. Ones an A+ student while another struggles to get Bs and Cs. One handles stress easily while another melts down at the slightest provocation. Its almost mind blowing, until one considers how different ones own siblings are from oneself. But then again, most parents wont admit to loving one of their children more than another. We may love them in different ways, but we love them nonetheless. But are they equal? And more to the point of this column, should we treat our children equally inside of our estate plans? Is treating our children the same in our will or trust an implicit obligation to demonstrate through our very last words and actions that we really did love them all equally? There is no right or wrong answer here. Suppose that you have a daughter, Sandra, who is a world renowned neurosurgeon. Sandra has speaking engagements in London, lives in a mansion and enjoys the good life. Your son, Thomas, is an eighth grade schoolteacher. He works very hard but struggles to take modest vacations with his family and to save for his childrens college education. Should you leave more money to Thomas then you leave to Sandra? John Sheppard, my retired law partner, commonly counseled his clients to treat his children equally when making these types of decisions. He would say that the children made their own choices in building their lives, and that we are all just stewards of everything that we own anyway. It was his thought that when leaving more to one child than to another, one makes an implicit nod favoring that child that can leave a hole in the other childs heart. I dont know if I agree with his philosophy. I can tell you from first-hand experience, when children are treated differently in an estate plan that the one who is treated less favorably will commonly ask if I knew of anything that they may have said or done to upset their parent. Unfortunately, the parent isnt around any longer (or we wouldnt be reading his or her will) to provide assurances that their love was just as strong for the one child as the other who was left more assets or money. But that shouldnt preclude one from leaving more to one child than another, particularly where there is a real need. Consider the child who has a disability, and because of decreased lifetime earning potential may not be able to accumulate sufficient savings to take care of himself in retirement. Leaving that child a larger chunk of ones inheritance would certainly be justified. Or how about another child who needs a little more help to educate her children? Or the other child who experienced unfortunate medical problems? There are all sorts of reasons for treating our children differently inside of our estate planning documents. The key to avoiding any emotional trauma that may result from our decision is communication. Whether that communication is through a heart-to-heart with a son or daughter to ensure that they know your estate plan is not representative of your love for him or her, or through a letter that is only to be opened at the time of your death, a few words of explanation can go a long way. If it were up to me, I would suggest the lifetime heart-to-heart as opposed to the letter to be opened later. A letter doesnt allow for the give and take that a conversation does. Its best to look your child in the eyes and tell him or her what you really feel. What about a punitive situation? You and the child have had a falling out. Or you dont like his or her spouse and fear that the spouse will squander the inheritance that you leave your child. These situations are much more volatile. Here I usually suggest that the parent take a few days or even weeks to consider the emotional impact of reducing that childs inheritance or leaving them out altogether. Theres no moral judgment here, just a pause to make sure that the emotions and thoughts are true and consistent. This is never an easy decision to make. So in the end, theres a great deal of emotion in our estate plans, whether we are leaving everything equally to our children or not. Whatever you do, make sure that your heart is in sync with your mind, and that youve done your best to communicate your intentions where appropriate. Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at www.sbshlaw.com. Will PowerAre All Of Our Kids Equal?by Craig R. Hersch, Florida Bar Board Certified Wills, Trusts & Estates Attorney; CPA School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My child has an IEP for some behavioral and academic problems. We are going to meet soon for his annual review and I need some help to understand what is meant by measureable IEP goals. How are goals supposed to be measured? Lynnette C., Fort Myers Lynette, You have asked an excellent question. IEP goals provide the basis for instruction, describing what a child needs related to their disability. Goals are typically written for what a student can reasonably accomplish in one school year. A measureable goal is generally written in quantifiable terms. That means numbers in some form very often in percentages, words per minute, time or amount and scores. There is a process for writing measureable goals and it is essentially the same for academics and behaviors. It begins with identifying a target or specific behavior. The behavior must be clearly defined in non-judgmental terms and must have baseline data collected on it. Sometimes, behavior goals are harder to write as measureable goals. Often, behavior goals indicate that a behavior needs to increase such as work production or paying attention but it is not written clearly. You can make behavior goals measurable by describing the factors surrounding the behavior. These factors include: Precipitating events What happens before free time, lunch, specials Environmental factors Physical conditions of the setting, i.e. instructional setting, cafeteria, etc. Results of the behavior Consequences of the behavior, i.e. how is the student rewarded? Other observable patterns, i.e. time of day, associations, etc. Identifying the factors surround the behavior can really key in and provide specific answers about the behavior. For example, a common mistake would be to write a goal that says the student must complete more work in class. That is not a measureable goal, however, it can be turned into one. Heres an example: By end of school year, this student will independently complete five assignments per day, with five or less prompts, with 85 percent accuracy on four out of five trials as documented on this students log. Here is an example of a well-written measureable academic goal for early reading. By end of school year, the student will increase his ability to sequence a story with using three or four pictures by 30 percent over baseline data. Remember that IEP goals must describe what the child will do, be observable, functional, meaningful, achievable, measureable and related to grade/state standards. Here is an easy acronym SMART (one of many used in special education) that may be helpful when trying to assess IEP goals. SMART stands for specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and timed. It takes time and energy to review your childs goals each year but it is well worth it given that this is the key to his education. For more information on IEP goals, visit www.wrightslaw.com.

ISLAND SUN MAY 30, 201452 Superior InteriorsFace-Lifting A Few Tired Spacesby Cindy MalszyckiAny time of year can be a great time to spruce up your home with new colors, new styles, even a few new furniture and accessory pieces to breathe life and energy into a tired old space. Here are a few great ideas guaranteed to uplift any tired room: 1. Lighten, Brighten & De-Clutter Try clearing your rooms of excessive clutter, and even consider downsizing your precious collections. Brighten your floors with a new area rug. Change out your window treatments to lighten your room. Add a few accent pillows to your furniture for a fresh new look.2. Try A New Color Scheme How about adding an accent wall to a room, perhaps in a shade (or two) darker than the rooms other three walls? Or, consider block painting a wall for more visual interest. Its amazing what a fresh, new color scheme can do to uplift your room, and give you a totally new outlook on life in the process.3. Add Some Fresh New Patterns Perhaps its time to consider replacing that tired, worn-looking sofa. Smart fabric choices of bold stripes, botanicals, leafy patterns or geometric designs would definitely add some spice to your dcor.4. Refresh Your Accessories A new lamp or lampshade might just brighten up one dark corner in your room. Perhaps a new piece of art or the addition of an exciting piece of sculpture might just set the tone for a wonderful, fresh room makeover.Whatever your pleasure, consider breathing a little life into your tired interior. You wont be sorry, once your new look is complete! Cindy Malszycki is an interior designer on Sanibel/Captiva Islands. She can be reached at cindy@decden. net.

We were looking to have a bit of fun and engage in a little friendly competition. Of course, the Rotarians gladly accepted the challenge. There was a big discussion about it at our meeting this morning, said Chet Sadler, secretary of the Rotary Club. Our booth is going to be set up by some of our lady members. Were gonna show the Kiwanians how hard we can work the ladies are up to the challenge! Members of the Sanibel-Captiva Kiwanis Club will be selling beer on the first base side of Hammond Stadium while the Rotary Club of Sanibel-Captiva will be pulling taps along the third base side. While bragging rights may be their only reward, all of the money raised by both clubs will go to charity. Monies raised last year went to The Sanibel School, Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida, Sanibel-Captiva Cares, FISH of Sanibel-Captiva and Hope Hospice.

ISLAND SUN MAY 30, 201454 Beckwith Participates In U.S. Senate Special Committee On Aging PanelSamira K. Beckwith, president and CEO of Hope HealthCare Services, participated in a U.S. Senate Special Committee on Aging panel in Washington, DC on May 21 that focused on end-of-life issues and how the private sector and government can be more responsive to patients and their families. Our health care system is excellent at managing acute episodic illness or injury, but there is great need to establish appropriate care systems for the number of aging boomers with advanced progressing illness, Beckwith shared with the committee. Hospice benefits need to be more accessible for individuals as they experience significant physical, emotional, spiritual, and financial burdens and become eligible for hospice care. The U.S. Senate Special Committee on Aging is chaired by Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Fla.) with ranking member Sen. Susan M. Collins (R-Maine). Beckwith urged the committee to examine the nine significant regulatory changes in 2014 that occurred without coordinating policy changes or their implementation, and without considering the impact on patients and families. Administrative and regulatory burdens that present obstacles include the new Medicare Part D requirements, face-toface requirement and a one size fits all approach across providers and patient populations that does not work for end-of-life care. The Medicare Hospice Benefit was designed to be flexible enough to meet the wide variety of needs and experiences that can be present in our vulnerable patient population, said Beckwith. These are the very aspects of the benefit that seem threatened now through the scrutiny on variations in length of stay, levels of care, setting of care and utilization of various staff on the hospice interdisciplinary team. Beckwith advocated for a national effort to increase hospice use during the last two years of life instead of misguided efforts to reduce the length of stay to reduce costs and improve patients quality of life. Joining Beckwith in the Continuing The Conversation: The Role of Health Care Providers in Advance Care Planning roundtable discussion were Carmella A. Bocchino, RN, Americas Health Insurance Plans; William Novelli, Coalition to Transform Advanced Care and McDonough School of Business, Georgetown University; Randall Krakauer, MD, Aetna; Daniel OBrien, Ph.D., Ascension Health; and Paul Malley, Aging With Dignity. Jennie Chin Hansen, RN, of the American Geriatrics Society, moderated the panel. For more information, call 855-454-3100 or visit www.HopeHCS.org. Samira K.

Actually, Im amazed at how many we get. Back in 1925, Helen Keller challenged the Lions to become the Knights of the Blind. Today, the club continues that work to help those afflicted with sight impairment and blindness through local education and testing, surgeries, as well as providing eyeglasses and guide dogs to those in need. The San-Cap Lions Club supports organizations including Southeastern Guide Dogs, Lighthouse Foundation, Trailways Camp, Conklin Center for the Blind, UNICEF, Florida Lions Foundation for the Blind and Lions Clubs International Foundation. Because we raise money locally, we give priority to those who are right here on Sanibel and Captiva, said Jim Graham, assistant treasurer of the SanCap Lions. There is a great need here on the islands. Our giving is a continuation of that community culture. Locally, the Lions help support groups including FISH of Sanibel-Captiva, Inc. and Friends Who Care. They provide parking assistance at many island events, including the Sanibel Public Librarys Author Series as well as Sanibel Shell Fair & Show. They also participate in Luminary Night every December. Our arts and crafts fair every year is a 12-month project, said Roger Grogman, a director of the San-Cap Lions. We make a great effort to populate the show with quality artists and quality materials, and the people on this island appreciate and respect that quality. Additionally, the Lions host the yearly Christmas tree sale at Baileys Center, an annual pancake breakfast and fish fry at The Community House and a golf tournament, which they are planning to return this November. I love being a part of such a local and powerful service club, said Debi Almeida, second vice president of the San-Cap Lions. For me, being the first woman to serve on the Sanibel-Captiva board of directors is quite an honor. I think women now joining the club adds a formidable force to accomplish much of what the board has planned this upcoming year and a different perspective that complements it. Its all about service, added Grogman. The Lions are actively involved with so many activities theres not a group on this island that doesnt use our services. Through the Lions fully-funded Bailey Scholarship Program, the club offers individual scholarships to students to advance their higher education. It also supports the handicap student program at Edison State College and WGCU, which offers audio programs for those who are blind. Working with the Periwinkle Partnership of Sanibel Beautification, the Lions have sponsored 29 benches along the Shared Use Path system, another subtle way you can see our presence, added Grogman. Lions International is comprised of 1.35 million members scattered across 46,000 clubs worldwide. The SanibelCaptiva club founded 50 years ago by a group of islanders, including the late Francis Bailey has approximately 100 active members, which meet on the first and third Wednesday of every month at The Community House. Gathering begins at 6 p.m., with the meeting starting at 7 p.m. It is also wonderful to be speaking to someone in another part of the country for business and when they say they are a fellow Lion, I know they have a heart to serve, added Almeida. That really means something to me. Instantly, a trust factor is there.

deaRPharmacistHow To Keep Yourself From Faintingby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: Ive been fainting (or almost fainting) several times a year for the last six years, and no one has been able to figure out why. Ive done every scan on my brain and arteries, and everything is normal. I take two blood pressure medications, something for depression and thyroid. What can you say to someone prone to fainting? BW, Silver Springs, Florida Normal? Its not normal to pass out. After passing out, a person requires little more than just lying flat (supine) until consciousness is regained. Smelling salts can help you come to a little faster and you can buy those online. The real danger is hitting your head on the way down! Your physicians should keep asking the question Why? The sudden loss of consciousness from fainting is scary and occurs from diminished blood flow to the brain. Im relieved your scans are okay, but that leaves you in a quandary as to how to manage another episode. Ill help you think this through. Most fainting is triggered by damage to the vagus nerve which connects your brain to your digestive system. When you eat, this nerve sends blood to your stomach and intestines and pulls it from your brain. If it yanks too much, you could pass out. Same thing can happen if you reduce blood pressure too quickly, if you bear down for bowel movements, or if you vomit or have chronic diarrhea. So eat slowly, and nurture your digestive tract by eating well, taking probiotics and avoiding food triggers. Check your blood pressure routinely, your medication dose may be too high, or the combination of your two drugs could be triggering this. The vagus nerve is a touchy little nerve that could be infected. I truly believe most people carry pathogens in their body that attack the vagus nerve, and you dont even know it. Images dont show these bugs on MRIs, MRAs, CT or CTA scans. Definitely avoid dehydration. Too little water in your bloodstream lowers your blood pressure (plus you take medicine), and this stimulates the vagus nerve, causing dizziness and fainting. Living in hot climates can make this worse. So can anxiety, like the sight of blood or shocking news. Drinking alcohol or taking certain drugs, even prescription drugs, can cause blood vessel relaxation and dehydration, which cause fainting. Diuretics like HCTZ, furosemide or natural diuretics can make the lights go out in your brain! Other medications that make you more prone to fainting include nitrates for angina, stimulants for attention-deficit, heart drugs and all the blood pressure medications. A condition called carotid sinus hypersensitivity occurs in elderly men and the slightest rubbing to a certain area of the neck can make you drop. Doctors dont usually look for this. Heart disease, anemia and hypothyroidism are other common causes for fainting. More on that at my new website www. TheThyroidSummit.com. Bottom line is to keep exploring why the blood drains from your brain so quickly and dont resign yourself to living with this. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition. Suzy Cohen is the author of The 24-Hour Pharmacist and is a registered pharmacist. To contact her, visit www.

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, I used to have the time to exercise and watch my diet, but no more. My elderly parents moved in, and their care appears to be more than I can physically and emotionally handle. I have gained 70 pounds and on a recent visit, my doctor has told me I am now diabetic. We are thinking of moving my mother into an assisted living community to ease my burden, because living with this stress is destroying my health. Do you have any suggestions to help ease our burden? Winifred Dear Winifred, Caring for elderly family members can be very difficult more difficult than most families realize when they first make the invitation. In order for you to care for them, you must care for yourself. It may be the right choice to move your mother, but first try having some part-time help maybe two or three hours a day in your home. While the help is there, do something for yourself; ask a friend to go for a walk or go walking in a nearby mall. Talk to a nutritionist and make a diet plan for yourself, and lose the weight. These are just starting solutions; when your physical health improves, you can go on to the next step and make further decisions. Lizzie Dear Winfred, Your parents need to move into an assisted living community or other living environment. While I can tell from your letter that you love your parents and want to care for them, there are many ways to love and care for older parents. Additionally, if something happened to you, what would happen to their best advocate? In a way, it is in your parents best interest to care for yourself. I am not suggesting that you pick a place without involving them and then leave them there. I am suggesting you talk with them and make this a family decision and planning process. If you need outside assistance, contact their primary care physician for a mental health referral. Pryce Lizzie and Pryces email address is momandmeaging@hotmail.com. 55 ISLAND SUN MAY 30, 2014
