Entitled Sea Monsters, the 12-foot-long interactive display engages visitors in some of the most misunderstood and intriguing attributes of monstrous marine life, and explains how they are adapted to extreme underwater environments. Among the special survival strategies and fascinating monster characteristics of certain sea creatures are deadly jaws, lethal venom, impressive ultra-vision and bioluminescence. This exhibit is hands-on and experiential thats how kids really learn, said Birgie Miller, executive director of the Ding Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 6, 20146 From page 1Water Quality Town Hall MeetingJames Evans, director of natural resources for the City of Sanibel; Shane Spring, realtor with VIP Realty; Ralph Woodring, owner of The Bait Box and director of Solutions To Avoid Red Tide (START); John Talmage, local business owner; and Chris Davison, general manager of the Island Inn. The meeting was moderated by Mark Anderson of the chambers board of director. The west coast (of Florida) has really woken up, said Anderson of the water quality issue. Its a huge issue and its complicated. The objectives for the meeting were to describe the current state of play, to invite input on Sanibels strategic options particularly those that will emphasize business concerns and the impact on job creation and to discuss how to achieve the right amount and quality of publicity. Evans offered an informative PowerPoint presentation on the local impacts of freshwater releases from Lake Okeechobee, including several images of last summers darkened plume; a graphic detailing freshwater flows coming out of the lake between May 8 and October 21, 2013; and a checklist of the citys legislative and funding priorities supporting water quality. During his presentation, Evans noted the economic impacts that water quality has on communities throughout coastal Southwest Florida. Tourism contributes $4.3 billion to Lee and Collier counties, while also supplying 85,000 jobs. An estimated $400 million is contributed from both counties from bed tax, sales tax, gas tax and local tax. Water quality issues can impact consumer confidence, said Evans. Weather experts are predicting a potentially wetter season this summer, and supporting shortand long-term water quality solutions including the Central Everglades Planning Project (CEPP), which will move approximately 210,000 acre feet of water south of Lake Okeechobee; the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP); rehabilitating the Herbert Hoover Dike; interim storage on the C-43 West Reservoir site; Lake Hicpochee Restoration Project; and purchasing additional lands south of the lake. According to Evans, 1 million acre feet of water storage is needed north of Lake Okeechobee, with an additional 1.3 million acre feet needed to the south, 500,000 acre feet to the east and 450,000 acre feet to the west. We need to build on our past efforts and accumulated science, he told the crowd. Roundtable participants also noted their experiences in supporting water quality initiatives. Talmage said that local businesses need to recognize that our seasonality is changing, while Woodring suggested that all of the interested stakeholders need to gather support from legislators, businesses and visitors outside the area. Ninety-nine percent of all the problems were having here have to do with just two things money and politics, said Woodring. All of South Florida needs to get together on this. Its the economic drivers that will give us a voice, added Davison, who also stressed the need for local voices to speak with the people who write checks, and that businesses should be able to embrace our local ecological advantages. Speaking from the real estate perspective, Spring noted that in terms of volume, their industry is experiencing the best year since 2006. Water quality is a national issue This is an issue that were going to continue to fight for, he said. Several members of the audience spoke during the question-and-answer session following the presentations. Some suggested that the chamber lead the effort to impress upon legislators as well as the South Florida Water Management District and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to develop viable solutions to moving water out of Lake Okeechobee, and for finding suitable storage space for excess water. We as a business community havent gotten our backbone into this, said Anderson. And we need to.

Sanibel Christian Preschool Graduates First ClassThe Sanibel Christian Preschool graduated its first class of pre-k students on Wednesday, May 28. Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ began the preschool last August as part of its ministry and outreach in the community. Family, friends and church members gathered as Director Laura Miltner led the children in to the strains of Pomp and Circumstance. The children shared their interpretations of some fine art work masters, what they wanted to be when they grow up, and their mastery of phonograms before being presented with diplomas by Miltner. Ana Abella, teacher of the 3-year-old class, took part as well as Senior Pastor John Danner and Associate Pastor Deb Kunkel. Miltner said, Our first year was truly spectacular and I look forward to our upcoming summer session and fall semester. Starting in August, the preschool is expanding to include 2-year-old students along with the current 3-year-old and VPK 4-year-old classes. The preschool is currently accepting applications for the school year beginning in August, but class size is limited. Scholarships are also available on a limited basis.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 6, 20148 Zonta Helps Educate Women In Guatemalasubmitted by Sue DenhamGRACE (Guatemalan Rural Adult and Childrens Education), an educational project under the auspices of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Fort Myers, has partnered with the Zonta Club of Sanibel-Captiva since 2007. Founder Dr. Genelle Grant has dedicated her professional life to helping women in Guatemala improve their health, family relationships, economic prospects and personal safety. The GRACE project conducts workshops throughout Guatemala, as well as locally in Lee County, with a focus on anti-trafficking, health education, stress reduction and teaching techniques. Grant first trains five to six facilitators in each geographical area and these facilitators, with the help of Grant and her team, then conduct day-long workshops with up to 50 teachers, chosen from local schools. In this way, vital information can then be shared at each area school by the newly trained teachers. A recurring element involves what Grant has named fertility bracelets, simple beaded items that help the women engage in family planning. By checking off one bead per day, women can determine when is their most or least fertile time each month. Grant says the bracelets, hung prominently in the bedroom, are popular not only with the women but also with their husbands, as they help limit family size. Every bracelet touches a womans life, and thereby the life of her family, Grant says. Thousands of bracelets have already been distributed in the regions of Guatemala that Grant is able to reach. At least a thousand more are being shipped this summer, either ahead of time or in the luggage carried by Grant and volunteers who travel with her. Zonta club members and others have been creating bracelets for weeks at various gatherings, using materials purchased through Zonta funds. Stringing the beads is social, like Group of new trainees in Guatemala, summer 2013. Dr. Genelle Grant is at the back left, Zonta member Virginia Jones is front right. Be Safe! Be On-time! Be Safe!

9 ISLAND SUN JUNE 6, 2014the traditional quilting bees where friends sat around a large table, shared stories and snacks, and created the items. One such gathering took place at the Suncoast Community Center in North Fort Myers, where immigrant women from Guatemala and Mexico gathered to help. Another was held at the Transitional Living Center of SalusCare in Fort Myers. Traveling with Grant this summer is Zontian Virginia Jones, making her second service trip to Guatemala. It is such a privilege to work on Zontas mission through the GRACE project, Jones said. I have seen the life-changing impact on women and families as they become empowered to make conscious decisions. By involving teachers and mothers, we create positive consequences that ripple through communities. She added that while this is a working trip, it also generates fun and fosters friendships. Along with fertility bracelets, Jones collects items the women need for educational purposes; notebooks, pens and pencils, scissors, string, simple items that we take for granted every day but which are unavailable or unaffordable in rural Guatemala. This year, a new focus for GRACE is on five human rights laws called Laws for Peace (Leyes para la Paz) that were passed but not publicized by the government of Guatemala. Zonta funds have helped create 5,000 rack cards and posters, and understanding of these laws is already reducing domestic violence and abuse in communities where instruction has taken place.

Legacy Tours had requested a license to operate a pair of 22-passenger buses that will pick up and drop off tour participants at the Matzaluna Restaurant parking lot, located at 1200 Periwinkle Way. Proposed tour stops include the Sanibel Historical Museum & Village, SanibelCaptiva Conservation Foundation, JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge and The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum. Previously, the tour operator had proposed stopping at the Sanibel Lighthouse, however, offered to rescind that proposal given the negative feedback received during prior council meetings. Mayor Kevin Ruane, concerned for the connectivity aspect and the yetto-be-determined outcome of the bus parking legislation, told his fellow council members they had several options to consider. He said that he would approach with caution looking at a policy which may be tweaked, and how that might affect an already-issued permit. Its unfortunate that we dont have this bus ordinance passed, said Mick Denham. In my opinion, we have a bigger issue here which is buses for hire, added Ruane. After a substantial discussion on the subject, Vice Mayor Doug Congress made a motion to approve the proposed resolution granting Legacy Tours its business tax permit, but requested that the license remove the Sanibel Lighthouse as a proposed tour stop and review the legislation after one year. Ruane seconded the motion. I dont think that you cant not approve this from a fairness standpoint, said Marty Harrity. Congress later amended his motion to grant the permit until the end of the current tax year, to September 30, which was seconded by Harrity.

Frozen Yogurt Social For FISH VolunteersVolunteers are the life and blood of FISH of Sanibel-Captiva, Inc. Without our volunteers, we would be unable to help our island neighbors. Our volunteers are full and part-time residents, retired and working. Some help in one service area, others assist with several; some can only give mornings or afternoons or certain days of the week, while others have more availability. There are always opportunities to become involved with FISH. With so many possibilities, everyone can find a good fit! One of the difficulties faced by FISH each year is locating enough summer volunteers to help. Please join FISH board members and staff, and bring along some friends who are interested in volunteering, for a new volunteer social hosted by Zebra Frozen Yogurt on Tuesday, June 17 from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Everyone who signs up that evening as a new FISH volunteer will receive a complimentary frozen yogurt. Zebra Frozen Yogurt is located at 2467 Periwinkle Way on Sanibel in the Baileys Center. For more information, visit or call 4724775. OBITUARY Read us online at

17 ISLAND SUN JUNE 6, 2014Birds Eye ViewThe Internet Is Their Weaponby Mark Bird WestallFor those of you who read my articles on a regular basis, I apologize. Looking back at my more recent writings, I realize that I sound more like one of those crazy people you see standing alongside the streets of a busy city holding a sign that reads, Repent Ye Sinners! I seem to be always pointing out what we are doing wrong as a species and not enough about what good we are doing. But there is so much that we are doing wrong! We dont want to live with alligators because we dont want to stop feeding them. We have to live with polluted water from Lake Okeechobee because our political system doesnt like Cubas politics. Those in power in Central and South America are following the same path that we did in this country concerning the rights of indigenous people. We bring the wolf back to Yellowstone National Park and, even though there is scientific proof that the ecosystem has benefited, the surrounding states implement management policies to eradicate the species in their jurisdictions. Now, I realize that people like me have been pointing these things out throughout the ages and the world hasnt ended yet. Does it really matter if there are only small alligators on Sanibel? Shouldnt we do whatever we can to eliminate communism in the world? Dont we (civilized humans) have a right to the resources that are found in the rainforest so we can continue to live our more comfortable lives? And come on, which is more important; the survival of the wolf or our ability to feed on steak whenever we want to. But ok, I will try for a while to write a little more positively about what good humans are doing to Sanibel and the rest of the planet. As I have said before, the way that more civilized people are treating those humans that remain living in the wilderness today seems to be following the same pattern that occurred in North America from the time of European colonization through the 1800s. The government signs treaties with the indigenous tribes stating that their tribal land belongs to them and they have political control over that land. Then the government leases the tribal lands to mostly western countries for oil and other resource extraction with no indigenous input. If the natives shoot their arrows at the low flying helicopters that scare away the game, the Indians are called savages. Next, when the colonos (the more civilized citizens of a particular country) leave their overcrowded cities and migrate to the selva (jungle) to log the wild forest or prospect for gold, the natives confront the invaders with bows and arrows. But armed with rifles and semi-automatic weapons, the colonos habitually respond by attacking the local villages and terrorizing the natives with rape and murder. The government usually refuses to recognize that any of these atrocities even occurred and that if the native claims should turn out to be true, the selva is so remote that by the time the government can respond, the intruders have already extracted what they wanted and disappeared, so nothing is ever done. But now, one tribe has found a way to fight the invasions upon their lands; they use the Internet! Just as dictators in the Middle East have found it difficult to suppress the ideals of freedom and personal rights, some of the indigenous peoples of the Amazon Basin are using the Internet to let the outside world know what is happening in that remote part of the world and using it to force the governments to respond to the natives pleas for help in a more efficient manner. One tribe in particular has come to the forefront in this new tactic;the Ashaninka. They live in a very remote region on the border between Peru and Brazil. They have had a very difficult time getting any government support when the illegal logging gangs invade their tropical hardwood rich territory. The Internet is our weapon. We gave up fighting with bows and arrows a long time ago, said Benki Piyako, the son of the chief of the Ashaninka in the Brazilian rainforest. We all need to be interconnected if we want to live in safety on our territory. A few years ago, a Brazilian NGO began equipping the isolated indigenous communities with Internet stations and that enabled the rainforest inhabitants to ask the government authorities directly for assistance when they needed it. And because the Indians were now able to also let those in the western world know immediately the problems they were having and how the government was responding to their request for help, the government felt more pressure to get involved. Illegal woodcutters are now more easily apprehended because the military and the police can get to the continued on page 22 Physical Therapy, Massage Therapy & Pilates Phone # 239-395-5858 7am-9pm 7 days a week (Summer hours vary) 239-395-1919Hours: 8am-5pm Monday-Saturday Phone # 239-472-5777 Showroom Hours: 8am-4pm Monday-Friday Phone # 239-472-1101Administrative Of ces & Classrooms Phone # 239-472-9700 Conveniently located on Periwinkle Way across from Sanibel Community Park Conveniently located on Periwinkle Way across from Sanibel Community Park

ISLAND SUN JUNE 6, 201420 Consistent Summer Action Is Finally Hereby Capt. Matt MitchellIm glad to report that our fishing is finally getting to where it should be this time of year. Add to that boat traffic and angler pressure has really slowed down as we get into our much more relaxed summer pace on the water. The best tarpon fishing of 2014 is finally here with good numbers of fish both out along the beaches and in the sound. Our summer weather pattern of light morning winds, afternoon thunderstorms and water temperatures in the mid 80s has tarpon getting into a consistent pattern. These fish are eating a wide variety of baits but for me a live pinfish fished under a float has been hard to beat. As our summer afternoon rains start to be an every day event, tarpon fishing will only get better. Strong morning incoming tides made the passes good places to be too. Snook to 38 inches were caught by my anglers this week. Multiple hook-ups of snook over 30 inches were common, along with a few upper to well over the slot redfish in the mix. Pulling these fish out from the tight quaters took the heavier 30-pound test spinning gear if you really wanted a chance to land one of these bigger fish. Big grunts, pinfish and slipperies were what these fish where eating, rigged with just enough weight to keep your bait on the bottom. This week, I got to do something I dont do often enough; take a guided offshore trip with some friends. Making the two-hour run out of south Naples to 50-plus miles out, our target was red grouper. Conditions were a little bumpy running out on the 31-foot center console. We made our first stop about 10 miles out to Sabiki up some live grunts on a well known public wreck. After quickly putting some baits in the live well, we hunkered down and made the 40-mile plus run out to 120 feet of water. Targeting flat rock bottom, the captain was looking for bait pods to tip him off to the location of the large red grouper. After a few drops with success, we hit the mother load with red grouper up to 16 pounds, hitting our baits just about every drop. With 10 of our 12 grouper limit in the fish box, we moved on looking for a few real fire truck size grouper to complete our limit. By early afternoon, we had our limit and headed off to the captains amberjack honey hole. As soon as we pulled up, you could see the amberjack school up on the surface all around the boat. Every freeline live bait was met with a hook-up, it was just plane silly. We kept a few just legal amberjack to make smoked fish dip and called it a day. Its been a while since I went on an offshore trip. Going with a captain that does this every day made it a awesome experience. Add to that, our fish were filleted and no boat to clean at the end of the day. I cant think of a much better way to spend a day off. 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.

Elliot SudalThe shark fishing has been pretty good this week. No monsters landed but consistent action on blacktips, bulls, nurse, bonnetheads and small hammerheads. The gulf beaches are great after dark when the tide is moving; jacks, mackerel, and bonita kayaked 200 to 300 yards out seem to do the trick. Big bulls and hammers may be showing up soon to chase the tarpon. Pine Island Sound is loaded with small bonnetheads, baby lemons and blacktips. They will take a big shrimp or chunk of herring and put up a good fight on light tackle. Remember, take care of these awesome animals, and you shouldnt keep them even though its legal for certain species. Its bad karma and they are a key part of the ecosystem around here. My deal with sharks is I wont eat them if they dont eat me. Get involved with the NOAA tagging program if you enjoy shark fishing; its free to join and provides scientists with valuable growth and migration information. There were tons of large tarpon jumping off the rocks or Beach Access 7 last week, and some jumbos rolling between the fishing pier and flats off of the causeway island nearest to Sanibel. I hooked into two. They took catfish tails in 20 feet of water. Hopefully, more will be showing up soon! Sharks Caught Capt.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 6, 201422 From Debbie Sickels, CEO of Waterside Inn on the Beach: This sawfish was caught off the beach of the Waterside Inn on May 19. I dont know the persons name that caught it, but the couple staying at the Waterside Inn snapped these pictures of the fish. According to the couple, Dawn and Doug Bennett, the sawfish had a GPS tracking device on its fin. They called the Florida Fish and Wildlife Department to let them know that they had safely released the fish back into the Gulf, and where they had caught it. We first thought it was a saw shark, but upon reading up on the Internet, it was noted that saw sharks lived in water depths of 300 feet. Our Gulf waters are much too shallow for them, they explained. Even though saw sharks and sawfish share similarities in appearance, they differ in several aspects. Sawfish are larger and they dont have barbels, and their gills are located on the bottom side of the body (like rays). Fish Caught Sawfish caught on Sanibel on May 19 Dawn Bennett with the sawfish Bob Lindstrom, a Sanibel resident, caught a 22-inch redfish on white bait in Pine Island Sound. Lindstrom was fishing aboard Sea Reed Charters. Fish Caught Bob Lindstrom Hortoons Email editorial copy to: From page 17The Internet Is Their Weaponterritory very quickly and catch the raw material pirates red-handed. Of course, the big problem of bringing the modern world into the more primitive world of the Ashaninka is that, once the young of the tribe are introducef to the modern world, will they still be willing to live with the old values of respecting the land, its plants and animals and all the natural resources of their rainforest home? Or will they decide to exploit those natural resources themselves so they can buy more material goods from the outside world? Benki saif, We are striving for a new way of thinking, for respect between the peoples and to protect our (old) way of life. Like I always say, Its all about balance!

23 ISLAND SUN JUNE 6, 2014 CROW Case Of The Week: Release Sites Needed For Native Wildlifeby Patricia MolloyImagine watching adorable ducklings frolicking in and around your pond or seeing an osprey skydancing above its treetop nest on your property (hopefully, not at the same time). W ith summer just around the corner, CROW has a large number of healthy babies ready to return to the wild, but not enough locations on which they can be legally released. Most of the babies raised at the clinic from babyhood do not need to be returned to the exact location in which they were found, since they were too young to have established a territory. Off island is where space is most needed, as 85 percent of CROWs patients come from across the Sanibel Causeway. The clinic currently has a variety of native birds, Virginia opossums, raccoons and otters that are ready to return to the wild and establish their own territories. It takes weeks or months for the babies to mature enough to survive in the wild. With baby season in full swing, the clinics staff, students and volunteers are working around the clock to feed them. Only a certain amount of animals can be released on one property in order to avoid infestation and over-population. If anyone has private property with a lot of land and would be interested in having wild mammals, birds or turtles released on it, call CROW. The clinic will review the set of guidelines with property owners to determine if their place is suitable. Some of the questions include: Is the property wooded? Is there a pond? Is it safe from free-roaming dogs? Be a good steward of the environment and help CROW in its efforts to find a safe haven for our precious native wildlife. CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Inc.) is a non-profit wildlife hospital providing veterinary care for native and migratory wildlife from our local area. The hospital accepts patients seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mail donations to P.O. Box 150, Sanibel, FL 33957.

When the large flower capsules open, the wavyedged petals arch backward on themselves into flowers of four to five inches across. The exotic flowers inspire other common names such as glory lily, tiger claw lily, flame of the woods, and climbing lily. Outwardly spreading very prominent green stamens curve downward beneath those petals. This fast-growing lily grasps and climbs with elongated tendrils extending from the leaf tips. It will scamper over whatevers handy trellis, fence, or another plant growing to as long as eight feet. While climbing with tendrils is a familiar strategy with vines such as the native corkystem passionflower (Passiflora suberosa), the strategy is not typically associated with a lily. Flamelilys glossy whorled leaves are oval or lanceshaped and two to three inches long. It prefers a spot with moist well-drained soil with organic content in sun to partial shade. After flowering, it will die back and later regrow from the tuber. Propagate it with the seeds in the pods or by dividing the tubers. The vine contains high levels of colchicines and all its parts are poisonous, especially the tubers. Even handling the plant can cause skin irritation. Several varieties are cultivated.

25 ISLAND SUN JUNE 6, 2014Shell Of The WeekThe Eastern Oysterby Jos H. Leal, PhD, The Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum Curator and Director of EducationBecause of its ability to form reefs and to filter large amounts of water, the eastern oyster, Crassostrea virginica (Gmelin, 1791), is an important organism living in the bays of Southwest Florida. Young oysters, called spats, live drifting in the water until it is time to settle to the bottom. At that time, spats prefer to settle on and cement themselves to existing oyster shells. This is one of the reasons why oysters form large reefs that serve as homes for a myriad other marine organisms. 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.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 6, 201430 From page 14Caf And BookstoreHeather Corbin, who formerly operated the Cheese Nook on Sanibel. Its just a joyful place to work. One of the featured items at the bookshop that Corbin is most passionate about is the new line of jewelry and gifts created by the Heshima Association, a therapy center for disabled children in Kenya. The mothers bring their kids to the therapy center and then go next door to create their Heshima (which means dignity in Swahili) Designs, which they sell worldwide and to The Carpenters Shop. The jewelry is made from recycled glass, fish vertebrae from Nile perch, brass from broken padlocks, henna-painted cow bones and hand-painted African trading beads. Their items are unique and help support the therapy center, said Corbin, who noted that there is a heartwarming video about this ministry online at www. Its just phenomenal what theyve done and a great organization to support. The bookstores inventory also includes greeting and note cards, magnets, mugs and inspirational signs. Like the caf, a portion of all bookstore proceeds are donated to SCCs missionary partners both locally and internationally. Closed on Friday and Saturday, The Carpenters Caf hours are from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday, which Ashton noted was their busiest day of the week. Running the caf has been an awesome experience really, a huge blessing, she added. The Carpenters Bookstore is open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday through Thursday. All purchases are on a suggested donation basis. The Carpenters Caf and Bookstore were made a part of the Sanibel Community Church campus to serve the church and the community by providing resources for spiritual growth and a connecting place for food and fellowship, said Pastor Daryl Donovan. To directly enhance the mission of the caf and bookstore, 10 percent of all donations for resources, food and specialty coffees go to local and global missions to assist people in need.

31 ISLAND SUN JUNE 6, 2014 Poets Corner selected by Tanya HochschildIsland Lifeby Robert HensonA woodpecker pounded on my gutter. Snapping wide awake with a mutter, I glanced quickly around the lanai. My ice cream snack had turned to butter. The fan blew some hair over my eye and I squinted at the cat nearby. She gazed at me quite unconcerned. Alert now, I glanced up at the sky. I realized island life has turned most of my thoughts into something churned. My concentration has been adjourned and some half baked thoughts have all been burned. I am compelled to say I have learned that my world view has completely turned. Love of island life should not be spurned. Love of island life should not be spurned. Robert Henson is a full time Sanibel resident. He and his wife moved here from Albuquerque, New Mexico two years ago. His book Aping Great Poets can be found on Amazon. We invite submissions from local poets. Anyone interested may submit their work via email to tutsie@ Each week, individual work will be showcased.

Sobczak will draw on the extensive research he conducted for his last four nature-oriented books for this intriguing presentation about the wildlife of Florida. The lecture will begin with a look at the Paleo-Indian arrival in a much wilder and warmer environment more than 12,000 years ago. He will then cover the arrival of Ponce de Leon in 1513 and the early agricultural development of Sanibel. After a look at the recent rebound of wildlife in urban areas, Sobczak will review the impact of climate change and the future of Florida. Tickets for the lecture are $10. Space is limited and registration is required by calling 489-8472. If you are unable to attend a program that includes a fee, kindly give 24 hours notice to receive a refund.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 6, 201434 My Stars FOR WEEK OF JUNE 9, 2014ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Try using that Aries charm to warm up the usual set of workplace naysayers, and then back it up with a solid block of facts and figures to sell your idea to your colleagues. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) While nothing can deter a determined Bovine from following a course you believe in, it helps to have some supporting data and statements by trusted colleagues to make your case. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Take advantage of new information that could help make your career transition easier. The weekend is a good time to re-establish relationships with people you havent seen in a while. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Personal matters demand your attention as oncestable situations begin to shift. Quick action to shore things up is called for in order to avoid more problems down the line. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Although your financial picture begins to brighten, thrift and caution are still the watchwords for fiscally astute Leos and Leonas to live by. Expect news about a family matter. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Before you try to blame a colleague for a workplace problem, make sure you have the proof to back you up. Make some quiet inquiries on your own to try to solicit more information. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Trying to cheer up a depressed friend or downcast family member can be difficult. But keep at it, and your efforts should soon pay off in ways you might have never expected. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Taking a new look at an old and frequently recurring problem might lead you to consider making some surprising changes in the way you had been handling it up till now. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Despite what the naysayers might say, setting your sights on a new goal could be one of the smartest things the typically sagacious Sagittarian has done in a long time. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Rebuilding an unraveling relationship wont be easy. But you can do it, if you really want to. Just remember to keep the lines of communication open between the two of you. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A new friendship could develop into a close relationship. Meanwhile, reassure an old friend who might be feeling neglected that he or she is still an important part of your life. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You might be feeling that youre still in over your head as you continue trying to adjust to your new situation. But the pressures ease by weeks end, giving you time to come up for air. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a gift for sensing the feelings of others. You might consider a career in some aspect of counseling. On June 14, 1789, English Capt. William Bligh and 18 others, cast adrift from the HMS Bounty in a mutiny seven weeks before, reach Timor in the East Indies after traveling nearly 4,000 miles in a small, open boat. Bligh would fall prey to a total of three mutinies in his career. On June 13, 1895, Emile Levassor drives a Panhard et Levassor across the finish line in Paris to win the worlds first automobile race, completing the 732-mile course in 49 hours -an average of 15 mph. His car was powered by a two-cylinder, 750 rpm, four-horsepower Daimler Phoenix engine. On June 15, 1904, more than 1,000 people taking a pleasure trip on New York Citys East River are drowned or burned to death when a fire sweeps through the boat. The onboard fire hose did not work, and life preservers had been filled with a weighty, non-buoyant material that sank. On June 10, 1935, two recovering alcoholics, one a New York broker and the other an Ohio physician, found Alcoholics Anonymous (A.A.), a 12-step rehabilitation program. Today there are more than 80,000 local groups in the United States. On June 9, 1973, Secretariat wins the Belmont Stakes to become the first Triple Crown winner since Citation in 1948. Secretariats heart was later found to weigh 22 pounds, more than twice that of a typical thoroughbred. On June 11, 1989, in the wake of the Tiananmen Square massacre on June 4, China issues a warrant for Fang Lizhi, a leading Chinese dissident, who had taken refuge in the U.S. embassy in Beijing. The diplomatic standoff lasted for a year before Fang and his wife, Li Shuxian, were given free passage out of the country. On June 12, 1994, Nicole Brown Simpson, football star O.J. Simpsons ex-wife, and her friend Ron Goldman are stabbed to death outside Nicoles California home. With overwhelming evidence against Simpson, including his blood at the murder scene, Browns and Goldmans hair and blood in his car and bloody shoeprints found at the scene, Simpson became the chief suspect. He later was tried and acquitted. You might be surprised to learn that the hamburger didnt originate in the United States. In fact, it was early Turkic people called the Tatars who first came up with the idea. When they had low-quality beef, they discovered that shredding it and patting it back together improved the flavor and texture. If for some reason you have a hankering to see the worlds biggest tire, youll need to head to Detroit (fittingly, I suppose). Located near the Detroit Metro Airport, the 80-foot Uniroyal tire weighs in at a whopping 12 tons. This attraction was created for the 1964 Worlds Fair in New York, where it served not only as an advertisement for the Uniroyal brand, but also as a Ferris wheel for the entertainment of attendees. In 1998, the company created the worlds largest nail -measuring 11 feet long and weighing 250 pounds -and used it to pierce the giant tire. It was another advertising stunt, of course; this time to promote Uniroyals punctureresistant tire. If youre like the average American, you will eat between 25 and 30 pounds of apples this year. Some researchers believe that those who drink large quantities of coffee on a daily basis are self-medicating for depression. There is a species of frog found in Australia with an odd method of reproduction. It lays eggs like other frogs, but this particular frog keeps the eggs in its stomach, hatching them internally. When the baby frogs are fully developed, they emerge into the world via the adult frogs mouth. Sometimes the most ordinary things could be made extraordinary, simply by doing them with the right people. -Elizabeth Green THIS WEEK IN HISTORY THOUGHT FOR THE DAY STRANGE BUT TRUE BEST TAKE-OUT ON THE ISLANDS FULL DELI, BAKERY DAILY LUNCH SPECIALS COLD BEVERAGESCall us for your cookout, picnic and party needs.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 6, 201440 Kiwanis Club Supports 10K Race 4 FISHThe Kiwanis Club of Sanibel and Captiva has become a Gold Sponsor of the 10K Race 4 FISH set for October 18. The carefully-plotted race around the island is a main fundraiser to support the non-profit, FISH of Sanibel-Captiva, Inc., in its mission of neighbors helping neighbors. Many people think Sanibel and Captiva are made up of rich people, Kiwanis Club President Les Boyle said. However, there are many people in need on these islands, including elderly residents who have lost a spouse or families who have lost jobs, and single parents trying to take care of their children just to name a few. FISH (Friends In Service Here) helps scores of families and individuals of all ages through its array of human service programs centered around socialization, nutrition and emergency assistance. These temporary programs are structured to improve quality of life for its clients to live independently with dignity in their homes. The Kiwanis Club of Sanibel and Captiva focuses its charitable giving to the islands with island children as the main focus, Boyle said. FISH is an organization that provides a wide variety of services to a lot of people in need, including children. The year-round backpack program by FISH provides children with healthy weekend meals, when school meals are unavailable. The backpacks of nutritious food are delivered to qualified students in kindergarten through eighth grade at The Sanibel School, as well as pre-kindergartners in three other local educational facilities. Kiwanis and FISH make a great partnership. FISH has the facilities and staff to provide the services and Kiwanis can provide funding. Both focus on the islands and both serve children, Boyle said. The Kiwanis Club uses its sizable charity budget to give local children educational opportunities through almost $50,000 in scholarships each year. The club administers scholarship funds for youth at the Childrens Education Center of the Islands, a non-profit preschool dedicated to affording children an educational head start. Through the Florida non-profit, Lee County Take Stock in Children program, the Kiwanis Club provides an $8,500 matched contribution to a four-year full scholarship for qualified youth with a Sanibel connection. Kiwanis club members have been dedicated to providing deserving low-income youth an opportunity to escape the cycle of poverty through education for many years. The Kiwanis Club currently has 98 members who are also dedicated members of the community, where they serve on many boards and volunteer for many other organizations. Kiwanis provides an opportunity to give back to the community, but the members have a lot of fun in the process. It is a great place to meet a wide variety of people with a wide variety of interests and backgrounds, Boyle said. The 10K Race 4 FISH committee has started planning for the 6th annual race that draws hundreds of runners and spectators from around the islands and across the causeway. The day will also include an expo and refreshment stands for the The Kiwanis Club of Sanibel-Captiva is a gold sponsor for the 6th annual 10K Race 4 FISH Stars & Stripes of Sanibel-Captiva Celebrate the 24th Annual Independence Day Parade Friday, July 4, 2014 9:30 a.m. Entry Fee: Commercial $30.00 Non-Commercial $15.00 Each Entry Fee is for a Maximum of 3 Vehicles Please Make Checks Payable to: 4th of July Parade Account Mail: C/O Bank of the Islands, P.O.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 6, 201442 California Chrome Chases History But Obstacles Stand In His Wayby Ed FrankHorse racing, obviously, pales in interest compared to most major sports. But this week interest has peaked over a beautiful chestnut-colored three-year-old colt in quest of something that hasnt been accomplished in 36 years winning the Triple Crown. You would have to be totally void of any communication to not be intrigued by California Chrome, who captured the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness and has, in fact, won five straight races, most by large margins. The early-week betting line had the big colt an overwhelming 1-1 favorite to win Saturdays Belmont. Since Affirmed won the Triple Crown in 1978, 12 horses have won the first two legs of the coveted crown, but failed to win the final leg, the Belmont. So the case can be made that history is not on the side of California Chrome. Few analysts question that California Chrome is easily the best of todays threeyear-olds. But winning three races in five weeks, with the Belmont the longest at 1-1/2 miles, poses the biggest challenge as the 12 others who have failed in the last 36 years will attest. California Chrome and the others who will enter the starting gate Saturday have never raced more than 1-1/4 miles. Lets open the history books and look at the 12 horses that won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness and where they finished in the Belmont in the last 3-1/2 decades: 1979 Spectacular Bid third 1981 Pleasant Colony third 1987 Alysheba fourth 1989 Sunday Silence second 1997 Silver Charm second 1998 Real Quiet second 1999 Charismatic third 2002 War Emblem eighth 2003 Funny Cide third 2004 Smarty Jones second 2008 Big Brown didnt finish The starting positions, the condition of the track, how a horse breaks from the gate, conditioning and management by the jockey are all variables that enter into any race. We all know the story how the owners of California Chrome, somewhat rookies in the world of horse racing, purchased the mare that delivered the colt for $8,500, a transaction called dumb ass by someone at the auction. Hence the owners labeled their partnership DAP for dumb ass partners. Wonder what that person is saying today? The popularity of horse racing has fallen in recent years but a victory Saturday by California Chrome will go a long way toward restoring that interest. Miracle Atop South Division as Seasons First-Half Nears the End In his rookie year last season, Miracle Manager Doug Mientkiewicz guided the Fort Myers Miracle to the Florida State League South Division Championship in the seasons first-half. Could history be repeating itself this year? Despite an 8-2 loss Monday night to the Tampa Yankees, the Miracle had won eight of their last 10 games to climb into first-place, a half-game ahead of St. Lucie as of early this week. Through Monday, the Miracle had a 33-22 season record with just 14 games remaining in the seasons first-half. Fort Myers concludes a home stand this week with a four-game series against Lakeland Wednesday through Saturday at Hammond Stadium.

43 ISLAND SUN JUNE 6, 2014 Lee Coast Chapter Of MOAA Donates To Wounded WarriorsRecently, the Lee Coast Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) presented a $5,000 check to the Wounded Warriors of Southwest Florida to help wounded veterans. Nationwide, there are over 380,000 MOAA members in over 400 local chapters. MOAA, as a national organization serving the nation and the community, is dedicated to maintaining a strong national defense and preserving the earned entitlements of serving members of the uniformed services, veterans and their families. The organizations main fundraiser is the Bob Janes Memorial Golf Outing, named in memory of the former Sanibel mayor, Lee County commissioner and the chapters first president. Support from the Fisher Houses (for families of wounded warriors) at Bay Pines VA Medical Center in St. Petersburg and the James A. Haley VA Hospital in Tampa makes the rehabilitation process easier for wounded veterans. MOAA provides financial support to the Fort Myers VA Clinic and Lee Memorial Hospital Military Support Program, which sends care packages to deployed service personnel. MOAA sponsors the Spirit of honoring WWII veterans, supports the annual Pride and Patriotism event at the Barbara B. Mann Hall, organizes and participates in the annual Veterans Day ceremony at Sanibel City Hall, and provides funds to FISH of Sanibel to assist veterans in need. To help the over 5,600 JROTC cadets in 14 Lee County schools consider a military career, MOAA funds their challenges and provide scholarships to outstanding cadets at an annual awards ceremony.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 6, 201446 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). Learn more about Beauty Inside Out at Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellSanibel-Captiva Rotarians welcomed Emilie Alfino, manager of the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village as guest speaker this week. She got us caught up on what is happening at the village, and the club presented her with a $1,000 check to help defer costs for audio/PA equipment used in presenting the history of Sanibel to visitors at the museum. In return, Alfino extended an invitation to attend the Free Admission Day at the museum on Saturday, June 14 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. That invitation extends to everyone on island. The invitation states, Take a step back in time and explore the Sanibel of a bygone era Take a stroll through history, the history of Sanibel. Visit the museum, grounds and restored historical buildings that help us understand what life was like on Sanibel during the late 1800s up to the early part of the 1900s. Sanibel history is presented in such a wonderful way at the village with historic buildings lining the pathway, informed docents to welcome you on the porch of the cracker-style home of the Rutland family from 1913. Docents not only tell you about the personal history of the house and give you an overview history of Sanibel but also point out the important features in the construction of a cracker-style house. Within the Rutland House, you will see photographs and memorabilia collected over time representing pioneering days on Sanibel. It was with a great deal of foresight that the city of Sanibel after incorporation in 1974 formed a Historical Preservation Committee, led by Elinor Dormer, to work on saving historical records, photographs, memorabilia and historic buildings. Sam Bailey also took on this project with conviction that this history should be saved for future generations, helping them to understand the way early residents on the island lived and worked during the early years of Sanibel. Other notable island families, contributors and volunteers have helped with this project. Today, the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village is an important asset for our community, one that can be shared with residents and visitors alike.

47 ISLAND SUN JUNE 6, 2014 Henry recently visited with me. I love my son-in-law as if he was my own son, he began, but my daughters marriage to him has been rocky at times, and Im worried that when I die hes going to take the inheritance I leave my daughter. What can be done to ensure that what I leave behind benefits her? I suggested that Henry consider leaving the amounts to his daughter in further trust as opposed to an outright distribution. I dont want her to beg for her inheritance though. My aunt was left a trust and had to beg the bank every time she needed money and it was HER money, Henry said. That situation might come true if you name a bank or trust company as the only trustee, and give that bank full discretion over when your daughter gets income or other assets from the trust. But what Im suggesting is to make your daughter her own trustee, or perhaps name a friendly co-trustee with her. While naming a bank or trust company might give your daughter professional management over the trust, I would suggest if this is what you want to give your daughter or some other person the ability to remove and replace the bank or trust company. But in any event, you can always name your daughter as the only trustee of his or her share. I replied. But if shes her own trustee, wont she have the ability to do whatever my son-in-law asks? Henry worried. What if he wants her to invest in the next big Internet company and she blows it all? Thats always a possibility if she has full discretion over the trust funds, I answered. This goes to how much you trust your daughter. You were going to give her the money outright before anyway. By leaving it to her in a trust that she controls you can protect the inheritance you leave her from creditors, predators and even divorcing spouses. How does that work. If she has control, wont the assets be subject to those dangers? The more control you give her, certainly the more likely creditors will be able to attack the assets. But by taking some preventive measures, such as naming an independent co-trustee, or naming her children (your grandchildren) as cobeneficiaries who may also be entitled to income, you can better protect the trust assets. When there are other discretionary beneficiaries, your daughter will, as trustee, have a duty to protect the trust assets for their benefit as well. But even so, my daughters rights to the trust will be mandatory, right? In other words, I want all the trust income to be distributed to her. Well, if she is the trustee, she can determine when its best to make distributions from the trust. So I might suggest that you make your daughter a discretionary beneficiary as well. If we make her kids as a current beneficiary, when they get older cant they demand trust money from her? I want her to have enough for her retirement and not necessarily give it all to the grandkids. We can build language into the trust that indicates your primary intent is your daughter. You can also give your daughter something known as a power of appointment so that she can dictate where the trust assets are distributed when she dies. There are several ways to limit your grandchildrens ability to make demands on their mother. After several more minutes of give and take on this issue, Henry decided to leave his daughter amounts in trust as opposed to an outright distribution. There are other benefits to doing this, as Ill point out in later columns. Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at Will PowerI Love My SonOr Daughter-In-Law, Butby Craig R.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 6, 201450 School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My daughter is dually enrolled in high school and college, She is beginning to write serious research papers for her summer school and uses the Internet for research, but I am finding that she does not know how to choose information that is accurate and reliable. What tips do you have on this? Scott R., Fort Myers Scott, The issue of finding credible sources on the Internet is a problem for most high school students and frequently extends to college students as well. The key here is that students must be taught how to make a critical evaluation of the sources they are using. This type of analysis is not always taught in school and its something students usually dont learn without specific instruction. You may want to ask your daughters teachers about how they provide such instruction but in the meantime, here are a some key questions for you to discuss with her on how to critically evaluate a website and to help her become a critical consumer of information: Research indicates that the four most important criteria to review for a website credibility include relevance, accuracy, bias/perspective and reliability. Relevance is the informations level of importance to a particular reading purpose or explicitly stated need for that information. Questions to ask here include what is the purpose of the site and how the site is relevant to ones own needs and purposes. Accuracy is the extent to which information contains factual and updated details that can be verified by consulting alternative and/or primary sources. For accuracy, important questions to ask include who created the site, what is the persons level of expertise, how recent is this information/when was it updated and how and where can I check the accuracy of this information. Bias/Perspective is the position or viewpoint toward which an author shapes information. This is such an important issue. Here the questions to ask include such things as does the website present only one side of the issue, or are multiple perspectives provided? How are information and/or images at this site shaped by the authors position and language? Is there anyone who might be offended or hurt by the information at this site? Reliability is the informations level of trustworthiness based on information about the author and the publishing body. Questions here should focus on the author or publishing bodys online profile. A quick check using a Google search will reveal reviews and ratings that can be used to get a good idea of reliability. Helping students to become betterinformed consumers of Internet information, to develop multiple perspectives, new ways of evaluating content and for the development of a healthy skepticism of content both on and offline is a longterm process. This takes lots of discussion and practice, but it starts with giving students the tools they need to become informed. Ms. Greggs is adjunct faculty at Edison State College where she teaches psychology and education courses. She is also Nationally Certified School Psychologist and consultant for School Consultation Services, a private educational consulting company.

51 ISLAND SUN JUNE 6, 2014 From page 10Legacy Toursreasonable option would be to grant the permit for a period of 16 months, ensuring that the city would have bus parking legislation in place by then. During public comment, Adventures In Paradise owner Craig Stewart said that while he had no problem with Legacy Tours proposal, From a competitive standpoint, Im going to be back knocking on your door asking for the same thing. Stewart noted that by picking up and dropping off passengers in a designated island location may give Legacy Tours an advantage. Well pick out a parking lot, too, he added. Legacy Tours owner Yvonne Hill, who confirmed that her business plan is not to bring passengers from off-island, told the council that she never intended her buses to be used to bring people to city beaches. Im looking at people who are already here, said Hill, who also noted that smaller bus models were selected intentionally. Im not asking you to look at my business model Im asking you to give me a chance to run my business. Fellow island businessman Billy Kirkland offered his stamp of approval to Legacy Tours, suggesting the 16-month permit would be more appropriate. After some more commentary, the council voted unanimously to grant Legacy Tours a permit through the end of September. They also approved a moratorium on bus tour permit applications until the parking issue has been formally resolved. In other business, Ruane presented eight Employee Dependent Scholarships to the children or dependents of city employees. On hand to accept their scholarships were: Courtney Chaipel, daughter of Steve Chaipel, finance department Emily Wesserling Cobian, daughter of Laura Wesserling, building department Hayden Cummins, son of Terri Cummins, planning department Allison Eicher, daughter of John Eicher, police department Andrea Wesserling Galician, daughter of Laura Wesserling, building department Christopher Larsen, son of Sandy Larsen, public works department Kyle Palmer, son of Larry Palmer, public works department Conner Tomlinson, son of Bill Tomlinson, police department The scholarships were made possible with assistance from the Charitable Foundation of the Islands. City Ponders Action On Segway Statuteby Jeff LysiakBy changing a single word in a state statute, Sanibels current legislation overseeing electric personal assistive mobility devices (EPAMD) commonly known as Segways has the potential to become much more complicated. At the April 1 Sanibel City Council meeting, city attorney Ken Cuyler noted that the Florida state statute language was altered during last years session, a bill which allowed the statute to change from may prohibit to may regulate. A local government body such as the city council may now regulate such devices if it determines that regulation is necessary in the interest of safety, but cannot prohibit such devices, an April 29 memo from Cuyler to council members reads in part. Potential regulations proposed by Cuyler include: The maximum speed at which a Segway may be operated A minimum age for the operator of a Segway A prohibition on the operation of Segways on streets or roads, except to cross at intersections The statute is unclear as to whether this type of restriction would be upheld if challenged because the statute permits Segways on any street or road where bicycles are permitted. It appears, however, that if Segways were permitted on the shared use paths, the city council should be able to prohibit Segways on roadways in the interest of safety, Cuylers memo explained. A prohibition on the use of Segways on the various environmental trails within the city (e.g. Pond Apple Park Trail) A prohibition on the use of Segways on the sandy beaches of the gulf or bay or on beach walkovers If the city council finds that such devices are unsafe in beach parking lots, a prohibition on Segways within such beach parking lots (for example, there may be a lack of places to park such devices) A prohibition on the use of Segways on the shared use paths at night, unless appropriately lighted During Tuesdays meeting, several members of the council and public addressed the issue. Marty Harrity noted the low number of safety issues over the years since Sanibel passed its current Segway ordinance in 2005, while Mick Denham reported a total of six Segways in private use within Lee County. Resident David Bath called Segways a safety hazard, and noted that pedestrians and cyclists using the citys shared use paths can accommodate the current intrusion and live with it, but individual riders would make a different situation altogether. I urge you to keep what weve got, because it works beautifully, added Mike Gillespie, while fellow islander Richard Johnson suggested the city allow state regulations to stand alone. Wayne Ponader, speaking on behalf of the Committee of the Islands, suggested that the council not enact any amendments to the current ordinance, but instruct the citys lobbyists in Tallahassee to immediately prepare an amendment to the state statute that would permit municipalities to both regulate and prohibit Segways if necessary, in the interest of safety. In the meantime, lets all relax, said Ponader. If someone wants to test our current law by individually riding his Segway on Sanibel, let him do so. Season is over. By season time next year, we should have gotten the state statute appropriately amended. If not, we can deal with the issue then and our current ordinance which is working fine will still be in place. Billy Kirkland, who operates a Segway tour business on the island, told the council that it is nearly impossible to get insurance for Segway rentals. I can assure you that I have no intention to do that, said Kirkland, who added that he cant remember the last time he sold a Segway to an individual. After some additional discussion, during which Jim Jennings suggested requiring all Segway operators to wear a safety helmet, Cuyler told the council he would prepare a formal review of both the state statute and current city regulations for Segways, and present it to them during their June 17 meeting. Council Calls Special Meetings For June 17, July 22by Jeff LysiakThe Sanibel City Council will convene a special meeting on Tuesday, June 17 beginning at 9 a.m. in order to conduct the second readings and public hearings on four proposed ordinances under consideration, while postponing an additional ordinance to a special agenda on Tuesday, July 22. Due to a clerical error, the required legal notices advertising the second readings and public hearings for Ordinances 14-001, 14-002, 14-003 and 14-004 and 13-009 were not published, and therefore the second readings cannot occur at this meeting, the councils Tuesday meeting agenda read in part. We have the ability to call a special meeting, said Mayor Kevin Ruane, apologizing to those in attendance for the error. In my almost eight years here, this has never happened before. Ordinance 14-001 proposes amending a Land Development Code pertaining to zoning and accessory structures; Ordinance 14-002 proposes a code amendment pertaining to development intensity; Ordinance 14-003 proposes amending a code pertaining to nonconforming uses and roof lines; Ordinance 14-004 proposes a code amendment pertaining to outdoor lighting, extending the compliance deadline to January 1, 2020. The proposed Ordinance 13-009 addresses the issues of buses parking in Sanibels beach parking lots. Council previously directed city staff to report on the feasibility, including potential environmental impacts, of identifying potential parking spaces for buses with a maximum of 36 feet in length at the beach parking lots. Additionally, the city has commissioned a report on the methods other highly visited communities utilize to manage buses and tour operations. Due to the intricacies and depth of these reports and studies, Ordinance 13-009 will be rescheduled to Tuesday, July 22. We apologize for any inconvenience due to this error, the agenda item concluded.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 6, 201452 Superior InteriorsPeaceful Outdoor Sanctuariesby Jeanie TinchAs our patios and porches are becoming more sophisticated and refined, todays homeowners are driven to find peaceful sanctuaries as a prescription for their stressful lives. Creating your perfect outdoor space will be the result of the successful combination of many design elements landscaping, stonework, carpentry, furnishings, lighting and accessories. Careful preplanning will be the key to the creation of your personal sanctuary, so begin with creating your personal wish list. You may be amazed at how long this list might become. Think about incorporating your yearround needs. Do you frequently entertain outdoors? Do you spend time outdoors in the evenings simply relaxing? Is an outdoor grilling season a year-round requirement for you? Do you enjoy planning simple family meals outdoors? Once youve assessed your needs, then planning your outdoor space becomes much easier. Think about incorporating these simple ideas: 1. Comfortable Furniture This should be the most important element in your design. Todays outdoor furnishings have been manufactured to withstand all that Mother Nature can bestow. The age of folding, vinyl strapped furniture is definitely now obsolete. Many furniture pieces of today look identical to indoor furniture, but have been constructed and designed to stand up to the outdoor elements. 2. Fabulous Fabrics The biggest name in outdoor fabrics today is Sunbrella. This companys collection of fabrics is colorful, design oriented and totally durable. Sunbrella features gorgeous fabrics manufactured to resist fading from ultraviolet rays, mildewing from damp conditions and odor absorption.

Let there be Light Be sure to consider incorporating various types of lighting in your outdoor space design, just as you would inside your home. Landscape lighting, overhead lighting, ceiling fans, sconces and decorative side table lighting are all great ideas. Develop a creative lighting plan to help you create a space with increased ambiance and functionality. Remember to create a space that is perfect for you and your needs. This is a space where memories will be made so consider it an important investment, both financially and emotionally. Jeanie Tinch is an interior designer on Sanibel/Captiva Islands. She can be reached at Insurance Tip Dont Forget To Insure Your Toysby Angela Larson RoehlIf you have a boat, personal watercraft, motorcycle or golf cart, then you most likely need to talk to your insurance agent to make sure your toys are covered in case of a loss. Some homeowner policies will extend coverage to a small boat or even a golf cart, however each company has specific underwriting guidelines that must be met in order for coverage to apply. Golf cart liability is usually included in your Homeowner policy as long as the golf cart is being used on a golf course. If you use your golf cart to cruise the neighborhood or go to the store to pickup some milk, then you need to have an insurance policy to cover you for this type of exposure. You can combine your boats and personal watercrafts on the same watercraft policy, however a motorcycle will need to be on its own policy. The more you insure, the more you can save. In some cases, you will receive a discount if youre a homeowner or insure your personal autos with the same carrier that is insuring your boat or motorcycle. Angela Larson Roehl is a local Sanibel-Captiva insurance agent with over 20 years of insurance experience. She can be reached at Long Term Care Support GroupA support group specifically for families of nursing home and assisted living facility residents will meet on June 17 at 10 a.m. at the Dubin Alzheimers Resource Center, 12468 Brantley Commons Court in Fort Myers.

The group is open to all interested families of nursing home or assisted living residents at no charge.For more information, call 437-3007. Cypress Cove Home Health Program Is A SuccessThe South Fort Myers Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) of Cypress Cove at HealthPark Florida has developed, in one year, a successful private in-house Home Health Agency program. The program is unique to Southwest Florida. Home Health Agency Manager Ted Jackson said, No other CCRC in our region provides a private duty only program for its residents. Prompted by a national trend where more and more retirees are living in place longer, resident demand for Cypress Coves community Home Health Agency program has quickly grown. Six months ago, requests for program participation by Cypress Coves independent living residents was half of what it is now. Today, an average of 50 residents monthly utilize care and/or services from this in-house program. I am very proud of our effort, said Director of Health Services David Gray. Our goal is to keep our residents as safe and comfortable as possible. Quite honestly, the program responds to those residents who love to live in their home and dont want to leave. Staffing for the program is supported through two certified groups of caregivers; Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) and Certified Home Health Aides (CHHAs). Its a win-win for both employees and the Home Health Agency, said Health Services associate Joe Yoon. We get qualified workers who are familiar with Cypress Cove and these CHHAs and CNAs get work hours added to their otherwise part-time schedule. The process for independent-living residents to utilize the program is simple, requiring only a call to the agency office. A meeting is held in the home of the resident where a full assessment is conducted including a home safety check. The assessment includes a review of housekeeping practices, shopping, doctor appointments, medicines taken and nutritional food intake. When completed, this full assessment will help determine the needs and assistance that must be provided, said Jackson. Support could be as simple as providing periodic housekeeping or as complex as supporting the resident through numerous tasks.

Lunch began with facilitated discussions on this years WLF grant focus areas, which were violence against women, economic empowerment and literacy, so attendees could learn more about the areas up for consideration by the group. Statistics shared with the group included that immigrant women are at a higher risk of being victims of domestic violence because many of them depend upon their abusive partners for legal and economic protection in the United States, and there is a significant problem in Southwest Florida. Financial illiteracy is widespread among the U.S. population, and studies show women who are less financially literate are also less likely to plan for retirement and be successful planners. Female-headed households with children younger than 18 years old have a poverty rate of 39.8 percent in Southwest Florida. According to the U.S. Department of Educations National Institute of Literacy, 32 million adults in the U.S. are illiterate, 21 percent of adults read below a fifth grade level, and that roughly 20 percent of Floridians are illiterate or lack basic reading skills. In Southwest Florida, 13.2 percent of women lack a high-school diploma and five percent of women have less than a ninth-grade education.

Bank Receives Company AwardEdison National Bank/Bank of the Islands has been recognized by the Florida Department of Health with the presentation of the Florida FitFriendly Company Award. Worksite wellness programs are an effective way to educate and encourage individuals to make meaningful changes toward a healthier lifestyle, wrote Florida Surgeon General and Secretary John M. Armstrong, MD in the award letter. In Florida and across the country, healthier employees are more productive employees. With the dedicated leadership of organizations like Edison National Bank, Florida will continue to make progress. The award is part of the statewide initiative to make Florida the healthiest state in the nation. Its presentation follows the banks 2013 recognition as both a Gold-Level and Platinum-Level FitFriendly Worksite by the American Heart Association (AHA) for helping employees eat better and move more. That dual recognition is rarely bestowed and was regarded as a high honor by AHA. Physical activity and employee wellness are important priorities in all of our offices. We are honored and excited to be recognized by the state of Florida for our A Better Way to Wellness Program, which sets forth the banks wellness initiatives. Our employees have become very health-conscious and embrace working as a team on health challenges such as weight loss, healthy eating and physical fitness, said Edison National Bank President Robbie Roepstorff. Participating in the 31-story Fight for Air Climb fundraiser was a great way for the Edison National Bank/Bank of the Islands staff do get fit while helping others Mom And Me by Lizzie and PryceLizzie and Pryce answer your questions and give advice about aging concerns from a two-generational perspective. 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, My brother is a college professor and a common drunk. My parents refuse to accept the fact of his condition because he is too smart to be an alcoholic by their reasoning. I have tried to talk with them but it is only making a division in our small family so I have given up. They attended two meetings for the families of alcoholics then they stopped going because they thought the information did not apply to them. They feel my brother must have some condition not yet diagnosed to cause him to drink so much and maybe also drugging. What do you suggest I do? Irma Dear Irma, The best strategy is to leave your folks alone. Until people are ready to hear a message, they simply will not listen. Observe the situation and be available when and if your folks are ready to hear about substance abuse. Whatever you do, do not make them feel bad or guilty by commenting: like I have been trying to tell you ...I told you... Pryce Dear Irma, Dependency on alcohol knows no intellectual boundaries. Your brother sounds as if he has a problem. Many families find it difficult to accept that their family members could be affected. Your brother must want help for himself as no one can help or do for someone if they do not want it for themselves. It is a very sad situation and you would gain information by attending AlAnon meetings yourself. Lizzie Lizzie and Pryces email address is Email your editorial copy to:


55 ISLAND SUN JUNE 6, 2014deaRPharmacistYour Life Depends On This So Dont Settleby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Readers, Im going to blog today, theres no Q&A format and the reason is because I have to speak my piece. Ive gotten some flack from endocrinologists who disagree with some of the comments made by me or my presenters for the summit I held recently, which aired worldwide over the Internet. I recorded presenters and we shared the truth about the best tests, the most effective medications, excellent laboratories and helpful supplements for all sorts of thyroid-related conditions. It took me a year, I offered it for free for the entire week (now, we sell the mp3 downloads if you missed it). The point, and the part that blows my mind, is that some endocrinologists insist the conventional TSH test is a sufficient biomarker to detect thyroid disease! Trust me, it misses up to 80 percent of you! Some shamefully believe that it doesnt matter what you eat or drink! One physician said that his patients with low thyroid were just hypochondriacs. A psychiatrist from Ohio emailed me and had this to say regarding women with depression, Suzy, women with depression should see a psychiatrist, and you should go back to selling drugs at the pharmacy. Stuff like that makes me laugh, but then I think of my hypothyroid self years ago, and then I think of you! Small thinking like this locks people into misery for decades! Im absolutely 100 percent right with everything I said during the Summit. I also stand by my presenters, who are the biggest names on the planet ( They are all worldleading authorities and bold enough to care more about you, than what the status quo says. Some risked their licenses to boldly tell you information contrary to the gold standards of practice. They were paid nothing. I have no need to defend myself or my presenters, the truth is we received thousands of thank you notes and positive comments. We have respect from good endocrinologists and other docs that were grateful for the learning experience! What I want to do today is empower you, because old-school docs are apt to mislead you. This isnt against doctors, I love them, many are my dearest friends. Im against uninformed practitioners who refuse to learn. So listen to me, this is how to destroy your thyroid: 1. By trusting the TSH blood test. If this is all your doctor tests, youre in trouble. Run! This test is a mere reflection of brain levels of thyroid hormone. It has nothing to do with intracellular levels. You might be sick as heck, but your TSH could be normal, in fact, the sicker you are, the more likely your TSH and total T3 levels are normal. Shocking but true. 2. By seeing psychiatrists and taking antidepressants when you need thyroid medicine! The biggest study ever done on antidepressants (called the Star D trial) proved that thyroid medicine worked better than some popular antidepressants. 3. By taxing your liver. Most thyroid hormone is activated in your liver, not your thyroid gland. Eating refined junk food, or taking medications suppresses your ability to convert T4 to T3, and T3 is what makes you feel energetic and happy. Alcohol harms your liver. Certain wines are very high in saponins, a soap-like chemical that harms the gut. Saponins, also found in oatmeal, reduce thyroid hormone. 4. By eating a lot of soy-based foods and drinks. Soy is often genetically modified, plus its a goitrogen, so it lowers thyroid hormone. 5. By letting yourself become iodine deficient. Going vegetarian or vegan can induce iodine deficiency in as little as five days in some people! This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.
