ISLAND SUN JUNE 27, 20146 Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellIt was a busy morning last Friday at Rotary. We had preliminary reports regarding upcoming club activities, an induction of our latest Sanibel-Captiva Rotary member Brian Boyd, and guest speaker Brenda Tate, president of The Womens Fund of Southwest Florida on the morning agenda. Brenda Tates name may sound familiar to many of you on the islands. She lived on Sanibel for a number of years and has always been an active volunteer taking on important leadership roles in many non-profits both here in Florida and previously in Georgia. Brenda routinely works behind the scenes to create strategic alliances and strong partnerships by fostering effective collaboration to get the jobs done, ranging from raising money, securing legislation, or negotiating deals to fulfill the missions of worthy causes. Since moving to Bonita Springs a few years ago, Tate has focused on establishing an initiative toward finding financial support to help women achieve greater financial stability and strategically invest in the future for women and girls. Along with a group of other prominent women in Southwest Florida, Tate officially launched The Womens Fund in 2012. Its purpose is to address the facts and find solutions by designing programs for women and providing information to them on how to build a better financial future for themselves. Womens studies have been done on population, diversity, employment, income, achievement, autonomy, health, and well-being in Southwest Florida. Presently these findings have helped the fund set up programs include the importance of asset building such as matched saving accounts and how to qualify for the organizations short-term micro-loans with low or zero percent interest rates. Research and finding financial resources is an ongoing task for the organization. Finding and working with established and possible future government programs, seeking out foundation grant opportunities, finding support with area business communities and seeking private fundraising is the key to success. The Womens Fund of Southwest Florida places strong emphasis on finding funding for research and study on the safety and security of women and girls in all aspects life particularly in fighting the sexual exploitation of women and girls, keying in on the human trafficking concerns here in Southwest Florida. Within the last year Florida Gulf Coast University has agreed to host the new SWFL Regional Center on Human Trafficking with an initial investment of $150,000 from The Womens Fund. With one small office and one fulltime employee the center will develop and implement a regional protocol that includes the enhancement of victim support provided by law, order and victim service agencies. The proposed center will also develop and implement a data collection method that facilitates the coordination of services and forensic investigations on human trafficking cases. Tate introduced three powerful marketing pieces now being directed to the public on human trafficking stating these simple and frightening facts: One in three runaways is sold for sex within two day of leaving home. The life expectancy of a child sold for sex is seven years. In Florida, we have children sold for sex at age 12. For further information or to make a contribution to The Womens Fund of Southwest Florida, go to The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets at 7 a.m. every Friday at The Dunes Golf and Tennis Club, 949 Sand Castle Road.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 27, 20148 Childrens Center Summer Camp Is A Blast For KidsThe Childrens Education Center of the Islands is again offering its fun and educational summer camp for children ages 2 to 5. Each of the nine weeks features a different theme. There are plenty oportunities to learn, use imagination and get active. The first week of camp began with the theme Dive into Summer. The children learned about summer safety while having summer fun. They made crafts of lemonade and ice cream and then had them a tasty treat. The theme of the second week was Super Slimy Bugs. Children went on a scavenger hunt for bugs, both real and plastic. Insects that were found, and some that were brought in from home, were identified and researched. Everyones favorite was the doodlebug, a real critter on the playgound, also known as the ant lion. They were dug up and inspected with both magnifying glasses and flashlights. Parents have the choice of enrolling their child in one or all the weeks offered for either three, four or five days a week, mornings or full day. Every Thursday and Friday are water days. The children come in their bathing suits and play outside in sprinklers, at the water tables and have lots of wet fun all morning long. Upcoming themes are Under the Big Top, 4thof July Field Day, Lets Go Camping and All Those Animals. For more information about CECI Summer Camp, call the preschool at 472-4538 or drop by anytime from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Simon, Bode Lackenby, Jayden Alonso, Yuan Bonhayag and Riley Sullivan thought it was really funny to be able to soak the new preschool director, Ms. Cindy, on water day Ally Flynt learns how to use a magnifying glass during Super Slimy Bug Week Ant lions, called doodlebugs at CECI, are always a big hit during Bug Week DJ Jenkins brought in his shark that he painted all by himself to share with his friends during Dive into Summer Week TRUST As the largest independent Trust Company in Southwest Florida, we combine personal service with world class investment management to create a superior client experience.

At last weeks council meeting, the compliance date for the Dark Skies Ordinance was pushed back three years, as councilors established January 1, 2018 as the new deadline. Ruane offered a phase-in approach for the long-discussed legislation, seeking 33 percent compliance after year one, 66 percent compliance following the second year and 100 percent compliance in three years. The Dark Skies Ordinance, created in 2000 and adopted in 2006, was established to protect the natural beauty of Sanibels night skies as well as the habitat for our nocturnal and crepuscular (active at dawn and dusk) species, particularly our sea turtles during nesting season, an informational brochure states. While all beachfront properties were required to become compliant within 60 days following adoption of the law, and all new construction is required to be built in compliance, non-beachfront properties had been scheduled to become fully compliant by January 1, 2015. Earlier this year, however, the council had discussed delaying the effective date for the ordinance, suggesting that many modifications to the legislation must be completed first. A number of issues including safety, availability of compliant fixtures, affordability and a misunderstanding and confusion regarding compliance had been brought forward by residents. From an education point of view, we need to do a better job, Ruane told commissioners on Tuesday. I dont think that this ordinance had the foresight to look 12, 15, 20 years into the future. The mayor also suggested that residents of the city are divided over the ordinance. The challenge is, said Commissioner Chuck Ketteman, to get the community to really want to do this. Ruane also noted that safety is the number one priority. Cost is second and a distant second, he added. Chairman Michael Valiquette offered the idea of putting the Dark Skies Ordinance up for public vote, in the form of a referendum. He told his fellow commissioners as well as Ruane that he was concerned that the legislation might be impossible to enforce, and that the additional costs and hours put in by city staff may be greater than anticipated. Conceptually, (the Dark Skies Ordinance) is a nice idea, and I think people want it, said Ruane, who added that he would not be in favor of a referendum. In other business, the commission voted 5 to 1 in favor of accepting a suggestion from city council to enforce the three-minute limit for each speaker during the public comment portion of their meetings. The goal, according to Planning Director Jimmy Jordan, is to have more efficient meetings. Commissioner Dr. Phillip Marks objected to the councils request, speaking in support of allowing speakers to talk about an agenda item without limitations. City Attorney Ken Cuyler added that the request did not restrict public comment, but did suggest that the commission not engage in a back-and-forth debate with speakers. We have a three-minute rule, and were going to abide by that, Ruane said later. He also noted that he listened to the last city council meeting on tape, and some of the speakers were permitted eight or nine minutes. He reiterated that the goal of limiting the time for public comments was being done to improve efficiency. Marks cast the lone dissenting vote on the recommendation. Well, well see how this goes, added Valiquette. Planning Commission Approves Relocation Of Caretaker Cottageby Jeff LysiakDuring Tuesdays planning commission meeting, a certificate of appropriateness to relocate the Caretaker Cottage on the grounds of the Sanibel Historical Museum & Village was unanimously approved. The application, submitted by representatives from the museum on behalf of the City of Sanibel, was requesting to reposition the historic structure which originally had been located on San Carlos Bay Drive, then moved to the Dunlop Road museum in September 2012 approximately 30 feet northwest of where it currently sits next to the Morning Glories cottage. The request also included the construction of new entry stairs as well as an ADA-compliant ramp to provide public access to the building. According to city planner Roy Gibson, the cottage now obstructs the view of Morning Glories. Answering an inquiry from Commissioner Chuck Ketteman, he added that the cottage will also be elevated in order to comply with the state-required base flood regulations. Dorothy Donaldson, president of the museums board of directors, told the commission that the move and construction fees were an estimated $13,000. Commissioner Tom Krekel made a motion to approve the application, which was seconded by Dr. Phillip Marks. Commissioners voted unanimously to approve the certificate of appropriateness, 6 to 0. more City on page 37

ISLAND SUN JUNE 27, 201414 Ding Darling Awards Scholarships For Environmental StudiesAt a special after-hours gathering at JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge on June 17, Ding Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge (DDWS) awarded $13,000 in conservation education scholarships to 12 students from the surrounding five-county area. The awards total was the highest ever in the seven-year history of DDWS Environmental Scholarship Program. The society is committed to educating todays youth as conservation stewards of the future, said DDWS Education Chair Doris Hardy. To that end, we work with various businesses and individuals to provide annual scholarships to students engaged in the study of conservation, biology and the environment. A big thank you to our scholarship sponsors for helping us in our mission. Six donors sponsored the 12 scholarships this year. Some sponsors were on hand at the ceremony to present checks to seven of the 12 students who were able to attend. Amanda Branson, a North Fort Myers High graduate and a sophomore at Troy University in Alabama studying marine biology; and Alex Lochard, a Cape Coral High graduate and junior at the University of Florida (UF) in Gainesville working on an environmental engineering degree, won the two Richard Bailey Scholarships, named in memory of a longtime refuge volunteer and donated by his family. Alexandra Mackey, a Cape Coral High graduate headed to the University of Central Florida (UCF) to study environmental law, received the Dr. Andrew and Laura Dahlem Scholarship. The Dahlems live part-time on Sanibel Island and were honored with a named scholarship by family members. Jessica Bergau, a Bishop Verot High School (Fort Myers) graduate and a sophomore at UF majoring in zoology, received the Hans and Leslie Fleischner Scholarship. The Fleischners are also part-time Sanibel residents whose love of the islands environment moved them to sponsor the scholarship. Chelsey Mora, a Cape Coral High graduate headed to Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge for a degree in coastal environmental science; and Krista Wyant, a North Fort Myers High graduate pursuing a degree in environmental science and policy at Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) in Fort Myers, each received one of two Mary Lou Schadt Scholarships, named for and sponsored by a longtime refuge volunteer. Five Tarpon Bay Explorers (TBE) Scholarship recipients include Estero High graduate Jennifer Bess, who will study marine biology at FGCU; Duke University masters program student in environmental management Brook Giuliano, a Charlotte County high school graduate; Gulf Coast High (Naples) graduate Carmen Hoyt, who will study marine science at Duke; Mariner High (Cape Coral) graduate Gabriela LaRose, who will major in environmental studies at FGCU; and Marisa Rodriquez, an Edison Collegiate High School (Fort Myers) graduate headed to the University of South Florida in Tampa to study zoology and animal biology. Wendy Schnapp presented the awards as co-owner of Tarpon Bay Explorers, which started with the DDWS scholarship program in 2007. The Jane Werner Environmental Scholarship, DDWS first permanent endowed scholarship, went to Cape Coral High graduate Julia Taylor, who plans to study science or environmental engineering at UCF. DDWS Emeritus board member Marilyn Kloosterman presented the award in honor of her late friend Werner, who volunteered at the refuge for 25 years. These students become part of the great Ding Darling family, said Hardy. We welcome them back as scholarship applicants next year and as fellow conservation stewards in years to come. DDWS will again be awarding scholarships at the end of the 2014-2015 school year. High school seniors and college students living in Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Glades and Hendry counties and pursuing careers in biology and environmental studies are eligible. For an application, visit after August 1. To read full descriptions of 2013 Ding scholarship winners, visit www.

Matt Mitchell Landing a big sh from the beach can be hard on the sh. Dragging a sh up onto the sand if youre going to release it is not an option as it usually damages or kills the sh. Hold the sh in the water while you unhook it if youre going to release it. The less you can touch a sh before release the better for the sh. If you want a picture with the sh, support it as you lift it out of the water and do it quickly. Before releasing, revive the sh while holding it in the water; moving it slowly back and forth so water goes over its gills. The sh will let you know when its ready to swim off. Florida just recently changed the regulations on shing from shore. Florida residents as well as out of state visitors need a shing license to sh from shore. Our email address is

ISLAND SUN JUNE 27, 201418 Birds Eye ViewOn Corkscrew Swamp, Wood Storks And A Loss Of Habitatby Mark Bird WestallA few weeks ago, Corkscrew Swamp celebrated its 60th anniversary as a National Audubon Sanctuary. Historically, according to naturalists journals written during the beginning of the last century, Corkscrew may have supported an estimated 100,000 storks that nested almost every year in a huge stand of virgin cypress. But by the 1950s, most of the cypress was gone and it became increasingly clear that if the swamp was not protected, the storks would eventually be gone also. So the Audubon Society, prompted by a coalition of nearby residents, photographers, writers, amateur naturalists, birders and even garden club members, negotiated with the lumber companies who owned the land and finally acquired the swamp in 1952. Since 1958, Audubon has been monitoring nesting success at the colony, making it the longest running, continuous data set on wood stork nesting in the nation. Since the monitoring began, the colony has supported approximately 75,000 nests and fledged an estimated 100,000 chicks. Throughout the Greater Everglades of South Florida, wood stork nesting success has been a measure of wetlands health. The storks are considered an indicator species; if they are doing well, it is assumed the rest of the ecosystem is functioning properly. But starting in the late 1950s, an extensive network of canals, ditches and roads were constructed throughout South Florida, resulting in widespread drainage and fragmentation of wetlands within the region. And the nesting success of the wood storks at Corkscrew Swamp has declined drastically as a result. Productivity for the birds has dropped from an average of 5,450 chicks fledged per year at the colony in the first ten years of monitoring (1958-67) to only 540 chicks per year from 2003-12. After 2009, the storks quit nesting completely at Corkscrew until last springs 2013 season, when they fledged only a total 300 chicks. Isnt it interesting that whenever humans begin to colonize an ecosystem, other life forms start to disappear? So even with the preservation of 13,000 acres of wetlands within the Sanctuary boundaries encompassing the largest nesting colony of wood storks in the nation, it wasnt enough to protect the birds from ecological degradation outside of the preserve. Drained wetlands and pretty golf courses with deep, fast-sloping lakes do not support healthy numbers of storks. What I find fascinating about the critical situation the storks nesting at Corkscrew find themselves in is the insidiousness of the dilemma. At the turn of the 19th century, it was obvious that we humans were wiping out all of the wading birds so the genteel ladies could stick the birds breeding plumage in their hats. But eventually, after a few Audubon game wardens were killed trying to protect the nesting colonies from poachers, laws were passed that made it a criminal offense to have in your possession any product (including breeding plumage) of the nesting birds. Once the fine ladies of Philadelphia and Boston could be arrested just for wearing a hat with feathers in it, the incentive for the poachers to take a chance of being caught went away and the birds responded accordingly. By the 1930s and 1940s, the wading bird populations had quickly recovered to their previous numbers. Thats because the habitat of South Florida was still healthy in those days! Because the habitat was still healthy after the shooting stopped, the birds responded by producing lots of young that refilled the wetlands niches that still existed there. Today, were not shooting the birds anymore for their feathers. What we are doing is drastically altering the ability of the land to function in the natural way that the birds have adapted to. We are creating an unnatural habitat here in South Florida and the natural world is choking to death! It is up to us as a species to do a better job of managing South Floridas natural habitats. The wood storks have no problem living with us as neighbors. Whether or not they begin to nest at Corkscrew again in the coming years is up to each and every one of us. The land developers and water managers need to take the natural systems needs into consideration when they alter the lay of the land, and we need to keep the politicians feet to the fire in creating and enforcing laws that protect those resources.

Matt MitchellWhat species would you prefer to catch? Its basically been just a matter of picking the right fish to target on the right tide phase. Our summer time fishing is going off with tarpon, snook and redfish action all being part of the daily game plan. The way the tides are this week, all these species can be targeted by early afternoon with enough time left over to beat the afternoon rains. Even if all the species dont quite line up in a row as planned, the odds are still in your favor for a quality day of great fishing action. Start your day with a game plan and a time table of when and where you need to be. Stack the deck in your favor. If one species is not going on, switch it up and move on to the next. Let the tide and conditions be your guide. After catching some live bait in the cast net as the sun is coming up, start your day out on the beaches sight fishing for tarpon. Tarpon fishing is now finally in full swing, with pods of fish easy to locate both out along the beaches and on the inside of the barrier islands around the passes. Take advantage of this prime time, the first few hours of daylight generally mean light winds and calm conditions, with tarpon rolling and gulping air better than at any other time of day. This first few hours in a morning will give you your best shot at hooking and landing a tarpon. It seems we are about a month behind schedule with tarpon fishing. Right now, it is the best its been all year with huge numbers of fish in our area. Some days have been harder than others to get these fish to eat a bait, but if you are in rolling fish, you are in the right place, Its a numbers game; if enough tarpon swim by and see your bait, you will get one to eat it! After a couple of hours of sight fishing, these beach tarpon head into the passes to target snook on the strong incoming tide. All our local passes right now are loaded up with the best numbers of snook we have seen since before the big cold weather snook kill of four years ago. Any kind of structure close to or in the passes with fast moving current is holding these fish. Good places this week to catch these snook were Redfish and Captiva passes. The blow downs and docks in and around these passes all had good numbers of quality snook. Frisky fresh bait and enough weight to keep it close to the bottom was key to getting bit. Twenty-plus snook trips have been the normal, with a good number of these fish over the 30-inch mark. Live pinfish and grunts have been the baits of choice. Dont be afraid to fish with that big pinfish or grunt for a chance at a giant snook. With snook season closed until September and these fish spawning, its all catch and release. Be gentle with them, handle them as little as possible and show them some love. If that hungry dolphin shows up after a free meal, no matter how good the snook bite is, its time to move on. With our tide pattern giving us high water by mid-morning/early afternoon, we have the ideal set up to target redfish next. Use either tail-hooked live pinfish or cut bait pitching it up under the mangroves on the last few hours of the incoming tide. Keep moving if you dont get a bite after you have worked the whole shoreline. Dont stay in one place for too long if its not happening as both the tide and time is now running out. When you locate these redfish, the bite will be fast and furious. Start your days fishing trip with a game plan based on the days tide, wind direction and where you caught fish on that same set up in the past. This game plan can never be quite set in stone, though, as Mother Nature always makes the final ruling and dictates how closely you can stick to your plan. Think one or two spots ahead giving yourself options both with location and target species. Plan B and C is often what makes for a successful fishing trip. 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.

21 ISLAND SUN JUNE 27, 2014 CROW Case Of The Week: Roommate Wantedby Patricia MolloyAdolescence can be a difficult period in any young life. Playground bullies, unfortunately, even exist in the wild kingdom. On a recent summer evening, a male juvenile mottled duck (Anas fulvigula) was admitted to CROW after being found abandoned or orphaned. Upon arrival, the fuzzy duckling was given a thorough exam by Dr. Jen Riley, DVM intern. He had a right leg issue. I didnt palpate any fractures but it looked like it hurt a little bit and he definitely was not using it as strongly as the other leg, she explained. A mild pain reliever was administered to make the patient more comfortable and radiographs were taken. While it was determined that the duck had not suffered any broken bones, his leg needed time to heal. With nearly a dozen mottled ducklings in the care of the Sanibel wildlife clinic, Dr. Heather thought it would be a good idea to introduce the new patient to other youngsters. After all, when mom is out of the picture, babies must learn natural behavior from their peers. We thought it might be OK to add him to the group and quickly learned it was not OK, explained Dr. Jen. When the other ducklings began to bully the little guy including pulling a few small feathers from the top of his head Dr. Jen quickly intervened by removing the duck from the fray. He was temporarily placed in a quiet cage by himself. I think its because there were several really big ducks in the first group and there were some that are almost his size. Maybe he will be better off with one or two of them. Im a little hesitant now to introduce him to others, Dr. Jen said with a laugh. He looks a lot better and hes more alert. I just felt bad about it. The key to raising any child is good nutrition, optimal healthcare and mental stimulation. With regard to the young patients at CROW, the clinic utilizes enrichment tools such as toys, not to ensure their happiness, but to help them build skills that are necessary for survival in the wild. Until a suitable roommate can be found for the young duck, Dr. Heather encouraged Dr. Jen to place enrichment tools in his enclosure. Did you give him a little mirror? A feather duster? asked the hospital director. We should have some little fuzzy surrogate ducklings for him. Since his arrival, the juvenile mottled duckling, patient #1641, has fully recovered from the minor leg injury and is growing by leaps and bounds.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 27, 201422 Plant SmartCanary Island Date Palmby Gerri ReavesThe Canary Island date palm (Phoenix canariensis) is prized for the stately look it gives a large landscape, particularly when planted in a tripod grouping or formal row. Native to the island for which it is named, as well as to North Africa, this massive ornamental tree grows to about 40 feet tall with a 20-foot spread in Florida. The twoto three-foot-diameter trunk bears diamondshaped scars where old fronds detach. Up to 50 large dark-green fronds make up the symmetrical globular crown. Each frond, or leaf, can be as long as 18 feet, with up to 200 leaflets along two rows The twoto three-inch spines along the lower stems make pruning difficult. Creamy flowers appear on orange stalks, yielding to clusters of fleshy oval fruit, ranging from orange to purple. This slow-growing tree prefers full sun but will tolerate some shade. Although this palm is very cold tolerant and hardy, it requires substantially more maintenance than native palms, such as the majestic royal palm ( Roystonea regia), an excellent alternative for a large-scale effect. The date palm is suited to a warm and dry climate rather than South Floridas hot and humid one. Sprinklers and poor drainage are the enemies of date palms, and diseases such as bud or foot rot develop because of over-watering. It is susceptible to potassium and magnesium deficiencies, indicated by yellowing, so regular fertilizer applications are recommended. Avoid over-pruning it into a pineapple shape, for the practice not only deprives the tree of nutrients, but invites the damaging palmetto weevil, which eventually kills it. Because this tree is expensive, its wise to maintain it properly or invest in cheaper plants that are easily replaced if unsuccessful.

Shell Of The WeekThe Striped False Limpetby Jos H. Leal, PhD, The Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum Curator and Director of EducationThe Striped False Limpet, Siphonaria pectinata (Linnaeus, 1758) is found on hard substrates (rocks, bridge pilings, concrete wharves) on Sanibel, Captiva and other parts of Southwest Florida. The common name indicates that, in addition to the stripes on its shell, the species is not a true limpet, being actually related to land snails and other air-breathing mollusks. The shell color pattern includes fine, alternating radial (departing from the center of the shell) lines of black (or dark brown) and white; these lines are visible also on inside edge of shell. The animals are hermaphroditic, with a single individual having both male and female reproductive systems. Minute eggs (arrow on the photo on right) are laid in gelatinous strands found adhering to rocks in Spring. The specimen with eggs was found in the jetty between Sanibel and Captiva, photographed and returned to its habitat.

No Child Left On Shore ProgramNo Child Left On Shore, a program of Captiva Cruises and the SanibelCaptiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF), is an environmental outreach initiative that strives to provide disadvantaged and economically challenged youth the opportunity to learn about and experience the wonders of our marine environment through a water borne field trip. Last Friday a group of kids under the care of The Childrens Advocacy Center of Southwest Florida took part in a cruise to Cayo Costa State Park on Captiva Cruises motor catamaran The Playtime. The advocacy center aims to improve the lives of children and their families through a coordinated response to child abuse and neglect. On Cayo Costa, the kids were able to see marine critters up close, collect shells, create sand sculptures, feel the sand between their toes and have fun in the spectacular Gulf of Mexico; experiences that many were partaking in for the first time. For over 25 years, Captiva Cruises and SCCF have collaborated on environmental education programs for residents and visitors of Southwest Florida. Both organizations saw a need to provide the younger generation with an opportunity to experience the invaluable resources of the Caloosahatchee watershed and estuarine environment. Cuts in funding for school environmental field trips have drastically reduced the number of students who can experience for themselves the importance of our coastal habitats. Many families of Southwest Florida, especially those with language, cultural, physical and economic barriers, do not have the ways or means to get out on the water. Many have never held a live sea star, shrimp or snail. They have never waded in shallow sea grass beds and observed a spider crab or horseshoe crab. It is this segment of Southwest Florida that Captiva Cruises and SCCF intends to engage by providing them with memorable experiential educational field trips. Anyone interested in sponsoring a No Child Left On Shore field trip for a youth group of Southwest Florida, or who would like additional information about this initiative, may contact Kristie Anders of SCCF at 472-2329. These youngsters were able to feel the sand between their toes on Cayo Costa Share your community news with us. Call 395-1213, Fax: 395-2299 or email

The better prepared you are, the easier it will be to make that important impression. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) New information might warrant changing your mind about a recently made decision. Never mind the temporary confusion it might cause. Acting on the truth is always preferable. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Creating a loving atmosphere for those you care for could pay off in many ways. Expect to hear some unexpected but very welcome news that can make a big difference in your life. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Stepping away from an old and seemingly insoluble problem might be helpful. Use the time to take a new look at the situation and perhaps work out a new method of dealing with it. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Youre still in a favorable goal-setting mode. However, you might need to be a little more realistic about some of your aims. Best to reach for what is currently doable. The rest will follow. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A setback is never easy to deal with. But it could be a boon in disguise. Recheck your proposal, and strengthen the weak spots. Seek advice from someone who has been there and done that. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Coming up with a new way of handling a tedious job-regulated chore could lead to more than just a congratulatory memo once the word reaches the right people. Good luck. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) What you might call determination someone else might regard as stubbornness. Look for ways to reach a compromise that wont require a major shift of views on your part. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Youre still in a vulnerable mode vis-a-vis offers that sound too good to be true. So continue to be skeptical about anything that cant be backed up with provable facts. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Thrift is still dominant this week. What you dont spend on what you dont need will be available for you to draw on should a possible (albeit temporary) money crunch hit. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Staying close to home early in the week allows for some introspection about your social life. Sort out your feelings before rejoining your fun-time fellows on the weekend. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) It can be a bit daunting as well as exciting to find yourself finally taking action on a longdelayed move for a change. It helps to stay with it when others rally to support you. BORN THIS WEEK : Your love of home and family provide you with the emotional support you need to find success in the outside world. On July 4, 1776, in Philadelphia, the Continental Congress adopts the Declaration of Independence, which proclaims the independence of a new United States of America from Great Britain. The declaration came 442 days after the first shots of the American Revolution. On July 1, 1916, 25-year-old Army Lt. Dwight D. Eisenhower marries 19-year-old Mamie Geneva Doud. He would go on to lead the Allies to victory in Europe in World War II and later become the nations 34th president. The couple lived in 33 homes during Eisenhowers 37-year military career. On July 6, 1933, Major League Baseballs first All-Star Game takes place at Comiskey Park in Chicago. The event was designed to bolster the sport during the darkest years of the Great Depression. Fans who could still afford tickets migrated from the more expensive box seats to the bleachers, which cost 50 cents. On June 30, 1953, the first production Corvette is built at the General Motors facility in Flint, Mich. All 300 Corvettes were white convertibles with red interiors and black canvas tops. The 1953 Corvette was outfitted with a six-cylinder engine and a two-speed automatic transmission. On July 5, 1975, Arthur Ashe defeats the favored Jimmy Connors to become the first black man ever to win Wimbledon. While the confident Connors strutted around the tennis court, Ashe rested between sets. Finally, with the shocked crowd cheering him on, Ashe finished Connors off in the fourth set, 6-4. On July 3, 1985, the blockbuster Back to the Future, starring Michael J. Fox, opens in theaters. The time-travel device in the film was a DeLorean DMC-12 sports car outfitted with a nuclear reactor that would achieve the 1.21 gigawatts of power necessary to travel through time. On July 2, 1990, a stampede of religious pilgrims in a pedestrian tunnel in Mecca leaves more than 1,400 people dead. This was the most deadly of a series of incidents over 20 years affecting Muslims making the trip to Mecca. Hundreds die each year in this pilgrimage, in stonings, stampedes or fires. It was novelist Tom Clancy who made the following sage observation: The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense. Charlie Chan, the fictional Honolulu detective, was created in 1919 by novelist Earl Derr Biggers. The books featuring Chan became so popular that the character made the leap to radio, movies and television. Over the years, 13 actors have portrayed the detective, but not one of them has been of Chinese ancestry. Rattlesnakes can live up to 20 years. When the TV sitcom The Addams Family was being cast in the early 1960s, actor John Astin came in to audition for the role of Lurch, the cadaverous butler. He was immediately rejected for the part. As he was leaving the room, though, the producer spotted him, pulled him aside, and immediately offered him the role of Gomez -the lead. All he had to do was grow a mustache. The nation of France was still executing people with the guillotine until 1977. In 1973, The Who began a major U.S. tour with a show in San Francisco. As the show was starting, though, drummer Keith Moon collapsed. He was revived, but then collapsed once more. At that point, in an unprecedented move, Pete Townsend asked for volunteers from the audience. Scott Halprin, a 19-year-old aspiring drummer, jumped at the chance. He played three numbers with the band, and lead singer Roger Daltry later told Rolling Stone magazine, That drummer was really good. Milk produced by a hippopotamus mother is pink. In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, its the exact opposite. -Paul Dirac THIS WEEK IN HISTORY THOUGHT FOR THE DAY STRANGE BUT TRUE

Scene from the documentary Pink Gold Rush Poets Corner selected by Tanya HochschildMost Of Me Is Pretty Good by Tanya HochschildMost of me is pretty good. When asked, thats what I say While parts have stood the tests of time Others are prone to decay. For me to see the printed page I have to extend my arm Has this got something to do with age? Or is it cause for alarm? For years Ive sat in dentists chairs, Not a thing could they find wrong, Now bridges and dentures need hardwares; Hydrofloss, a curette and a prong. I use products supplied by Pfizer Because at night I cant fall asleep, Despite a massage pillow and vaporizer I fail to count those sheep. They say a drink before dinner is the foe I know it will make me get up and go see the slow clock radio show Two a.m., three, then four Oh, for one long uninterrupted snore! Every one has a different diagnosis on which we tend at parties to focus Who takes what and how many doses Their organ recitals are music to my ears Make me temporarily forget my cares As soothing as an after-dinner mint Except, of course, we are talking liniment. But most of me is pretty good Although I no longer sprint. If you ask I will slip a hint. My knee packed up last year Yes, you heard about that meniscus tear. I dont yet need an assistive device (although a youngster who could operate my computer would be nice.) But most of me is pretty good Its only when I answer a questionnaire I realize how many doctors are involved in my care, Although my past medical historys checked with many nos Im no stranger to Medicare and specialist medicos. Yes, most of me is pretty good But not when allergy seasons upon us Then I feel a certain minus due to suffering from sinus Ive swapped northern cold for southern mold But I Nasonex and bear it! So, although, parts of me are becoming unfurled it truly isnt the end of the world, And when you tell me youve a case of streptococci My advice? Consider yourself lucky! Tanya Hochschild is member of a Sanibel Writers Group, has participated in Artpoems and Writers Reads on the island and had two books published. We invite submissions from local poets. Anyone interested may submit their work via email to tutsie@ Each week, individual work will be showcased. 25 Years Experience

Floating Docks, Platforms And Boat Lifts Ordinance OKdby Jeff LysiakIn response to a recently-passed Florida statute which preempts local governments from prohibiting the use of floating docks, floating vessel platforms and floating boat lifts statewide, the planning commission approved an ordinance which will bring the city into compliance. The Florida law specifically exempts these types of drive-on docking systems from permitting even in environmentally-sensitive waters so long as they are within parameters dictated, and used in connection with an existing docking structure or legal mooring area that already anticipates the presence of a watercraft, the staff report presented to the commission read in part. The law specifically excludes from the exemption a floating dock or walkway structure that creates a new slip; these activities still require permitting procedures. Currently, there are no provisions in the Land Development Code for floating docks, floating vessel platforms or floating boat lifts. These types of structures presently do not meet the citys dock construction standards, specifically the deck planking and spacing standards which allows for the penetration of light and the movement of air. The draft ordinance proposes standards to allow for these floating marine structures to be permitted in locations where boat mooring is currently permissible subject to the same requirements for other accessory marine structures (except for dock planking standards) and so long as they meet certain criteria that is consistent with Florida statutes, the report added. Commissioner Chuck Ketteman asked City Attorney Ken Cuyler if the state statute contained size restrictions; Cuyler confirmed that they did. However, when Ketteman asked if the city could impose smaller dimensions, in order to allow greater light penetration, the attorney responded, No. After a brief discussion, chairman Michael Valiquette made a motion to approve the ordinance, which was seconded by Ketteman. The motion was approved, 4 to 2, with Dr. Phillip Marks and Tom Krekel casting the dissenting votes. Commissioner Holly Smith was absent from the meeting. Primarily, Marks objected to the city being unable to control our own destiny. He mentioned the areas sensitive marine life, sea grasses along with several other factors as reasons for voting against the ordinance. We know whats right for Sanibel and we cant do anything about it, he added. Send your editorial copy to: Pancakes


ISLAND SUN JUNE 27, 201438 Sanibel-Captiva Art League Artists Exhibit Paintings At LibraryOver 50 paintings created by members of Sanibel-Captiva Art League are currently on view at the Sanibel Public Library, 770 Dunlop Road. By displaying their work in this annual Summer Art Show, the artists attain goals set during past academic and studio studies and during local painting workshops. These shows provide local artists with encouragement to practice and improve their skills while sharing their work with the community to critique and purchase. Some of the artists have only recently started painting while others have won awards and also show their work in art galleries throughout the year. The ever-popular island scenes with tropical vegetation and wildlife are a favorite for island residents who wish to decorate their homes as well as for visitors who wish to take a little of the island back so they can remember their vacation in paradise. Each original painting is a different interpretation and unique to the individual artists style.

39 ISLAND SUN JUNE 27, 2014There are exquisitely beautiful watercolors rendered with precision and expert technique while other paintings have wildly-colorful expressionistic brushstrokes that evoke emotional content. As part of the Art Council of Southwest Florida in Lee, Charlotte and Collier counties, San-Cap Art League also provides opportunities for artists to enter their paintings in several juried shows throughout the year that are judged by nationally-known artists. Frequently, the judge will give a public gallery talk afterward and explain why he chose certain paintings to receive awards and rejected others from the exhibit. Residents and visitors are invited to view these exhibits and attend receptions. The next Art Council Show will be held at BIG ARTS Phillips Gallery this coming December.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 27, 201440 With Back-To-Back Division Titles Miracle Skipper Has Great Futureby Ed FrankIn his first two years of managing, Doug Mientkiewiz has guided the Fort Myers Miracle baseball team to back-to-back South Division Championships for the seasons first-half leading to speculation that the former major league first-baseman could be moving up quickly into higher level managing. There is no question that he has the leadership qualities you looks for in a manager, said Brad Steil, the director of Minor League Operations for the Minnesota Twins. While Mientkiewicz will remain as Miracle manager for the remainder of this season, dont be surprised if the Twins or some other team pluck him for a bigger job next season, In fact, dont be surprised if someday in the not too distant future you see him managing a big league team. Hes done a really nice job in his first two years of managing. Hes helped our players become better players and his teams have won a lot of games, Steil said. Hes played in the majors, hes smart and he knows the game, he added. With only one years experience as a batting coach for a lowly rookie level team in the Los Angeles Dodgers system, Mientkiewicz was surprisingly tabbed last year for the Miracle job by Twins Genera Manager Terry Ryan. Obviously, Ryan recognized his baseball smarts by hiring him for the Miracle, an Advanced A team just three steps removed from the major leagues. Ryan was somewhat defensive at that time when asked why he selected Mientkiewicz for the Miracle job without any managing experience. Hes a winner. He has a good baseball IQ. Hes been a player, coach and played in a World Series, Ryan said then while pointing out that Robin Ventura of the Chicago White Sox and Mike Metheny of the St. Louis Cardinals hadnt been managers prior to their hiring. The skill in which Mientkiewicz maneuvered his players to various positions throughout the first half of the season was a major factor in winning the championship. A raft of injuries required the manager to move players into positions they had never played. And two pitchers, Tim Shibuya and Mason Melotakis, shifted from the bullpen to a starting role and from a starter to a reliever. Without our pitching, we wouldnt be anywhere near this, Mientkiewicz said after clinching the title. To date, only one player has been promoted from the Miracle to Double A New Britain right-hander Jason Wheeler who compiled a 6-5 record with a low 2.51 ERA in 79 innings pitched. He led the pitching staff in innings pitched. Losing only Wheeler puts Mientkiewicz in a strong position for the second half of the season. However, it is likely that other Miracle players could be promoted before seasons end. Mientkiewicz returned to the Twins organization after a colorful major league career. He actually began his professional baseball career in 1996 right here with the Miracle and quickly advanced to the major league club by 1998. He was the Twins first-baseman from 1998 to 2004 before being traded to the Boston Red Sox in 2004. He is best remembered for a gameending play in the2004 World Series, won by Boston, which he no longer cares to discuss. In that final out, Red Sox pitcher Keith Foulke tossed the ball to Mientkiewicz at first base which he kept. A controversy erupted as the ball was wanted for the Baseball Hall of Fame. There was even a lawsuit filed. Ultimately, Mientkiewicz relinquished the ball. The Miracle skipper has proven hes a winner and its likely youll see him back in the major leagues as a coach or manager before too long. Miracle Start Second Half 3-2; Two Players Honored The Miracle started the seasons second half winning three of five, including a whopping 12-1 victory Monday night over Charlotte in which Fort Myers hurler Jose Berrios picked up his eighth win of the season. A first-round draft selection by the Twins in 2012, Berrios, just 20 years old, has compiled an 8-2 season record with a sparkling 2.05 ERA. He was named Florida State League Pitcher of the Week for the period June 16-22. Also honored was Miracle shortstop Jorge Polanco, who batted .444 (12 for 27) during the same period to earn the FSL Player of the Week. The Miracle began a six-game home stand on Wednesday with three games against St. Lucie and a weekend series against Palm Beach. Lily & Co. To Sponsor July 4 FireworksLily & Co.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 27, 201442 Reptile Show Draws Oohs And Aahs From Young Campersby Jeff LysiakAn island tradition of sorts continued last Friday afternoon as John Storms dazzled a crowd of summer campers with his World Of Reptiles show at the Sanibel Recreation Center. Storms, a longtime Southwest Florida resident, brought seven reptiles with him to the Rec Center. They were: Corn snake Bearded dragon Bull snake Blue-tongued skink Alligator snapping turtle African crocodile Jessie, an albino Burmese python Dave DeFonzo, the rec centers youth activities coordinator, said that Storms has been bringing his high-energy and humorous presentation to Sanibel for more than a quarter of a century. In fact, most of the teenage camp counselors working this summer raised their hands when asked if they grew up seeing Storms reptile show as kids. While Storms brings a different assortment of lizards, snakes and other unusual or rarely seen reptiles with him every year, he always brings Jessie now an 11-yearold python who is 15 feet long and weighs 150 pounds who closes out the show. Her appearances repeatedly elicit a chorus of oohs and ahhs from the crowd. During the presentation, Storms points out some interesting facts about each species. For instance, he noted that the corn snake also known as a rat snake is the most popular pet snake in Florida. He also explained that bull snakes can make a noise that sounds like a train whistle and the blue-tongued skink eats snails, berries and flowers. The larger animals in the World of Reptiles show, including the alligator snap John Storms shows off Jessie, a 15-foot, 150-pound albino Burmese python photos by Jeff Lysiak A bearded dragon John Storms shows off an alligator snapping turtle during last weeks World Of Reptiles show held at the Sanibel Recreation Center Rec Center campers were captivated by Storms incredible reptiles Storms takes Jessie the albino Burmese python out of her crate A blue-tongued skink Storms first reptile of the 45-minute show was a corn snake

One highlight of the show was when Storms shared exactly how the snapping turtle catches its prey: Inside its darkened mouth is a shiny pink tongue. When it wiggles its tongue, a passing fish mistakes it for a worm, and when it swims into the mouth to feed upon it WHACK! The turtle snaps its jaws shut.

47 ISLAND SUN JUNE 27, 2014 A Durable Power of Attorney (DPOA) is an important docuvment that everyone should have as a part of his or her estate planning portfolio. Generally speaking, the grantor of a Durable Power of Attorney names someone who can legally act for the grantor in any number of ways. The person who is granted the power to act is known as the attorney-in-fact or agent. For simplicitys sake in this column, Im going to refer to the grantee of the power as the agent. The DPOA may allow the agent to write checks to pay bills, sign deeds, complete beneficiary designations, enter into and/or enforce contracts, open accounts, close accounts and direct investments, among other things. DPOAs cease upon the grantors death. In other words, they are no longer effective. The Durable in the name Durable Power of Attorney means that the powers survive the grantors incapacity. A General Power of Attorney, in contrast, would cease if the grantor should become incapacitated such as through dementia or Alzheimers disease. Most estate plans use the DPOA since the thought is that the power holder would only act if the grantor of the power couldnt. Under Florida law, one can name an agent under a DPOA, and then if that agent is unable or unwilling to serve, another agent can be named as an alternate. It might look something like this: I hereby name my wife Patti as my Attorney-in-Fact, and if Patti is unable or unwilling to serve, then I name my daughter Gabrielle to so serve. I almost always try to persuade my clients from naming successor DPOA agents in the same document. Why? Even though they are legal under the relatively new Florida statute on point, successor DPOAs are very difficult to use from a practical standpoint. Consider the fact that any bank, financial firm or broker who is acting under a DPOA is suspicious of the document from a liability standpoint. Consider the scenario where my daughter Gabrielle walks into my financial advisors office holding the DPOA and says, I need to transfer $20,000 out of my fathers money market account today. My financial advisor looks at the DPOA, worried that if it is not authentic he could be liable for following Gabis direction. So he asks Gabi, Why are you using the power? Can I call your dad to see if this is OK? Dads in the hospital and isnt able to talk. I need to write some checks to pay a bunch of his bills and that is why I am here, Gabi answers him. My financial advisor then reads the DPOA and points to the first line that says my wife Patti is the first power holder and not Gabi. It says here that your mother is the first power holder and that you can only act if she cant he says. My mom is out of the country and cant take care of these things now, Gabi says. Im sorry, my financial advisor says, I have to be very careful as I may have a lot of liability here if for some reason you arent supposed to act. He adds, Im going to have to give this to my firms legal department to sort out. Gabi, frustrated and worried that she wont be able to pay my bills on time, is frustrated. How long will this take? she asks. I dont know, my financial advisor replies. From there, the whole thing can become a circus. The attorney for the financial firm may say that they need written proof that Patti cant act or that she is unwilling to act. It can take days if not weeks to resolve. So, whats the alternative? What I normally suggest is that each person you wish to name as your agent under a DPOA have a separate DPOA document that just names them individually. While there is a possibility that if you have two different parties acting under a DPOA that they are in conflict with one another, I will tell you anecdotally from personal experience that I havent seen much (if any) of that in my practice. With that said, if you name more than one party as a DPOA in separate documents it is wise to tell the individuals you are naming of the fact that each has a separate power, and that your expectation is for them to work together and to consult one another. Or if you prefer that one only act when the other couldnt, that would be a verbal arrangement. Remember that anyone acting as an agent under a DPOA has a fiduciary duty to the grantor of the power. They should only be acting in the grantors best interests. If you fear that someone you name wont do that, or wont work in conjunction with another as you would request, then I would say that you probably shouldnt be naming that person in such a powerful document to begin with.

But, if the thought of tediously hand-feeding piles of personal papers into your home shredder makes it tough to get motivated, then the perfect solution is to let someone else shred it for you safely and quickly. Bring documents such as bank statements, credit cards receipts, old checks, income tax returns or anything that contains personal information, while watching the professionals at Secure Shredding, Inc. pulverize your papers into bits within mere minutes. The event is open to the public. A small fee of $5 for one or two boxes per car will be collected. If you have more boxes, an additional donation is requested. All proceeds go to The Community House operating fund to help maintain the house so additional donations are always encouraged. For more information on this or other SCA-sponsored events, visit or call 472-2155.

It is time to play outside, but as residents of Sanibel and Captiva, we know the sun is more intense and the afternoon rains are frequent in the summer. Dont let these factors affect your pool and keep you and your family from enjoying a sparkling, clean retreat from the heat. Here are some considerations to make to keep your pool summer ready: Rain Those afternoon rain showers can drop a lot of fresh water into your pool, diluting your chlorine levels and affecting other important chemical levels. A healthy pool is a properly sanitized pool. In the summertime, you may find that you have to increase your use of chlorine, whether it is liquid chlorine, granular chlorine or a combination with the use of chlorine tabs to help feed chlorine into the pool consistently. Ideally, you should try to maintain a reading between two and four parts per million (ppm) of free chlorine for your residential pool. Sun The ultraviolet rays from that bright summer sun breaks down the chlorine in your pool. Stabilizers, like cyanuric acid, can increase the longevity of your chlorine by protecting it from degrading in the sunlight. However, if your stabilizer level is high, it can make the chlorine ineffective. It is best to aim for 30 to 50 ppm when testing your water. You will need to be careful to limit the amount of chlorine tablets used as each tablet also adds more stabilizer to the water. It is important to test your pools water often to monitor its sanitizer, pH, alkalinity, calcium and stabilizer. Home test kits are great and available at most pool stores. Additionally, many pool stores as we do offer free water testing and can help you troubleshoot imbalances or answer any general pool cleaning questions you may have to ensure you and your family are swimming in a safe, clean pool.

This includes not only computers, but devises such as smart phones and tablets. Greater online security is demanded due to the everchanging technology. At home, work and at school, you are the first line of defense in guarding against online risk. This is a responsibility that is shared, and requires awareness and vigilance from every citizen, community and country. Cyber risk involves either malicious individuals that intend to cause harm in cyberspace, such as hackers who steal information personal or otherwise or benign individuals who are people who accidentally cause harm to a network, sysytem or the Internet, and this would be like someone surfing the net and accidentally downloads malware onto their personal or companys computer system. When will a cyber risk occur is very difficult, if not impossible, to know. Where does it happen? Cyber risk occurs in cyberspace, or better known as the Internet. It is accessed through computer networks that share information and act as a portal for information. Cyberspace has no boundaries. The Department of Homeland Security has issued the following tips to help minimize your chance of an incident: Set strong passwords, change them regularly and dont share them with anyone. Keep your operating system, browser and other critical software optimized by installing updates. Maintain an open dialogue with your friends, family and collegues about Internet safety. Use privacy settings and limit personal information you post online. Be cautious about offers online; if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Most Home & Business insurance policies do not cover loss due to cyber risk, but there is specific policies available for purchase to cover these risks.

49 ISLAND SUN JUNE 27, 2014 School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Readers, As you know, I like to share new, important information when it is available that may help students. And right now, there is some good news for students (and others) who are nonverbal, deaf or otherwise have difficulty communicating via traditional telephone calls. Getting emergency help for the aboveidentified group has always been a significant concern for parents and teachers and many, many IEP goals that deal with survival have been written to address this skill. Within the past few weeks, a new option to seek emergency help has been set into motion. A 911 call will soon be available via text. Text-to-9-1-1 refers to the ability to send text messages to local 9-1-1 call centers during an emergency. Despite growing reliance on text messaging by millions of consumers, almost all 9-1-1 call centers today cannot receive text messages; they can only receive voice calls, about two-thirds of which are from wireless phones. According to disabilityscoop, an e-newsletter for Developmental Disability News, beginning this month, the nations four main wireless networks now have the capability to support text messages sent to 911. Currently, it is possible to text 911 in communities in 16 states where emergency call centers are set up to receive and respond to the messages, according to the Federal Communications Commission. Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile pledged in a voluntary agreement to accommodate text-to-911 on their networks by May 15. The FCC wants all text providers to offer the capability by the end of the year and the agency is encouraging 911 call centers to adopt the technology. It is unclear, however, when texting 911 will be possible nationwide. Textto-911 availability will ultimately depend on funding and the deployment of hardware, software and training programs at the nearly 6,000 911 centers across America, and progress will vary from one community to the next, said Brian Fontes, CEO of the National Emergency Number Association. According to the National Emergency Number Association (NENA), until textto-9-1-1 service is implemented in a given area, texters in those areas will receive an automatic bounce-back message indicating that text-to-9-1-1 is not yet available, and advising to use another method to contact emergency authorities. Even when text-to-9-1-1 becomes widely available, the best way to contact 9-1-1 will continue to be via voice communications whenever possible.

Sanibel-Area Sylvan Learning Center Offers Tips And Summer Reading ListsWhile summer is a break from school, Sylvan Learning Centers in the Sanibel area dont believe that the time off should also be a break from learning. A recent survey from Sylvan Learning found that on average, kids spend significantly more of their free time playing outside (30 percent), playing video games (17 percent) and watching TV (18 percent) than reading (12 percent). Additionally, research has shown that kids should read at least five books over the summer, yet 46 percent of tweens are reading four or fewer books according to their parents. To help parents get kids excited to read this summer, Sylvan Learning has compiled the following summer reading list for tweens in grades four through eight, based on the most popular books on Sylvans Book Adventure website (www.bookadventure. com): 1 Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2 Harry Potter 3 Percy Jackson and the Olympians 4 The Hunger Games series 5 Charlottes Web 6 Hatchet 7 Charlie & the Chocolate Factory 8 Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing 9 Holes 10. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe The learning specialists at Sylvan Learning also offer the following advice to help parents get their kids excited about reading this summer: Let Kids Choose Instead of requiring kids to read the classics over the summer, let them choose a book they are interested in reading. According to parents surveyed, 65 percent said that letting the child choose the book helps get him or her interested in reading it.

51 ISLAND SUN JUNE 27, 2014 Teddy Bears Wanted For Festival Of TreesJoin Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida, Inc. in collecting new, stuffed teddy bears to decorate the A Very Beary Christmas tree as part of the 8th annual Festival of Trees. The nine-foot tree has been a staple of the organizations annual event since its inception in 2006. Comprised of bears donated by the community, the tree is one of 25 beautifully decorated trees that are auctioned off at the festivals signature event, the Tux & Trees Gala in December. Auction guests gather around this special tree to raise money for The Southwest Florida Goodwill Foundation. The tree is then traditionally donated to a childrens hospital. Last year, we had over 600 teddy bears donated, said Madison Mitchell, spokesperson at Goodwill. That was more than any year prior. We hope to reach that number again this year with the support of individuals and businesses in the community. Goodwills goal is to collect the bears by November 14, in time for the start of the Festival of Trees, which is held at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center in December. We encourage local businesses to hold mini-bear drives of their own, added Mitchell. To see the faces of the children and families that come through the festival and see the bear tree... its magical. If you are interested in hosting a teddy bear drive, or have new bears that you would like to donate, contact Madison Mitchell at 995-2106 ext. 2213 or email For more information on the Festival of Trees and Tux & Trees Gala, visit Last years festival and gala raised over $90,000 to support The Southwest Florida Goodwill Foundation, which provides long-term financial support to programs and services of Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 27, 201452 Community Foundation Hosts iLAB 2014 EventThe Southwest Florida Community Foundation recently brought together 100 nonprofits from Lee, Charlotte, Glades, Hendry and Collier counties for the redesign of their funding process for regional and agency programs and projects. Hosted by Arthrex at its Naples headquarters located at 1370 Creekside Boulevard, iLAB 2014 was the launch of the foundations new Community Impact Grant process. The five-hour iLAB was the first phase and an idea-to-project event. Participants spent essential time moving from issue clarification to project design. At the end of the five hours, participants had created two to three regional projects and presented them to a team of reviewers. The foundation plans to evaluate the potential of these ideas and consider funding one or more through this years Community Impact Grants. iLAB is all about increasing our regions ability to think together about innovative solutions to real issues, said Sarah Owen, president and CEO of the Southwest Florida Community Foundation. We want to create new regional partnerships while strengthening existing ones. Owen added that additional goals were for nonprofits to learn to design projects with greater ingenuity, adaptability and collaboration and to emphasize the importance of regional innovation. Only iLAB participants are able to submit an individual agency Letter of Idea for funding during phase two. Called the Compassionate Shark Tank, phase two will include two rounds in June and July. In round one, agency leaders interested in an individual agency grant will submit an LOI that is a one-page snapshot of their program/project idea that includes the issue, change, action, partners and funds needed. If their letter is accepted, round two will have them participate in the shark tank with a few minutes to share their idea with the shark tank panel made up of individual and corporate funders from across the region. If the panel accepts the agencys idea, they will be invited to submit a stream lined RFP.

53 ISLAND SUN JUNE 27, 2014 deaRPharmacistFind Out What Is Causing Your Fibromyalgiaby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: Ive had fibromyalgia for the last 8 years, and I take Lyrica, Hydrocodone and Citalopram for medicine. My local pharmacist said those are used to treat pain and depression, but I want to make sure with you. Also, Id like to know what natural alternatives I have. SD, Gainesville, Florida Fibromyalgia affects millions of people worldwide. In latin, the term describes pain in the muscles and fibrous tissue. The muscle pain and tender points can become rather painful, and sometimes disabling but I believe there is an underlying cause, perhaps infection, nutrient deficiencies, mitochondrial dysfunction, the drug mugging effect of medicines and more. Ill elaborate shortly, but you asked me to confirm the uses of your medicines. The Lyrica (pregabalin) is used to soothe nerve pain and can make you drowsy. So can the hydrocodone which is used to reduce a pain chemical called Substance P and the citalopram ( Celexa) is classified as an antidepressant but thats not necessarily how its being used. Sure, it lifts a brain neurotransmitter called serotonin, which improves mood and reduces pain. Antidepressants that improve levels of both serotonin and norepinephrine may be even more effective. My point is this class of drugs is often used to relieve pain, not necessarily for depression. All three require prescription. The cause of muscle pain varies greatly from person to person. Try not to concern yourself too much with the name of your disease or your diagnosis because the labels you take on as an identity make it harder for you to overcome. Just think in terms of having symptoms, rather than diseases, its more pleasant. The following are some known causes for muscle pain and if you can find out the cause you can address it. With the help of a conscientious practitioner and state-of-the-art blood tests, find out if you have: Infections Pathogens known as EBV, CMV and HSV are known to hide in the body and cause muscle pain. Some cause chicken pox and shingles. Lyme disease, Bartonella, Babesia, Hepatitis C, coxsackie and parvovirus may cause terrible muscle pain. Magnesium deficiency This causes widespread muscle pain. This nutrient is depleted by coffee and The Pill, certain menopause medications, antacids, acid blockers, steroids and 200 other drugs. Taking high-quality magnesium continued on page 54 Eden Energy MedicineLearn The Daily Eye Exercises To Support The Eyesby Karen L. Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAML (03-12)Last week, we learned that the liver, kidney and stomach meridians govern our eye health and how each is associated with our eyes. During a recent workshop on the eyes, I was asked how much time it takes to do all these exercises. Literally, if you do the five minute routine regularly, it only takes five minutes after you have learned it. It takes about five minutes to do the eye exercises so that is a total of 10 minutes per day to begin to see shifts. However, it will take longer when you first start to do these exercises because they are new. Then I was asked, But is it worth it? The student who improved her vision in four months got a free eye exam when she was told she needed a stronger prescription. Being a tenacious woman, she stated if she improved her eyesight in four months with energy exercises, he would provide a free exam. If there was no change, she would pay. But if the vision improved, the exam was free. Initially telling her no, she persisted and finally he reluctantly and with utmost skepticisms, agreed. The proof is in the pudding her eyesight improved dramatically!Here is another of the daily eye exercises: Cover The Eyes Place your hands on your thighs, then rub them together and shake them off. Place the hand over the eyes with fingertips of both hands touching so that your little finger is parallel to the floor. Take two breaths. Pull the hands to the temples. Inhale. On exhale and with pressure, pull the fingers around behind the ears, down the back of the neck and rest on the shoulders while you push in with fingertips. Take two breaths. Bring your hands to the front of the body and cross your arms over the shoulders, giving yourself a hug. With pressure, pull the arms down the front of the body, the front of the legs and pinch the bunions on both sides of the feet. Bring the palm side of the flattened hands from the big toe up the inside of the legs, to the armpits and then sweep the open palms down the side of the body off the waist. Give it a whirl it will make a huge difference. Have fun with your energy! Next weeks topic is Learn the Daily Eye Exercises To Support The Eyes Part II.

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 live alone and I am getting to be very lonely. My friends are moving away or they are quite sickly, and others are dying off. I am getting bored with constant TV watching and reading books. I know it would be cheaper to stay in my home, but it is no fun being lonely and I think I would prefer living in a facility with other people around. What suggestions do you have? Emily Dear Emily, Making a significant decision like housing requires a lot of thought. It is very good that you are reaching out, asking questions of people who do not have a vested interest in your decision. Independent living communities, assisted living communities and staying in your own home with services all have plusses and minuses. For example, in independent and assisted living communities you give up some of your freedom... when to eat meals, what to eat, how much to eat and with whom you eat. But in the same communities, there are social programs during the day, mostly all day every day. All you have to do is to walk downstairs. At home, on the other hand, you can eat what you want when, how much and with whom you want but you have to go out and search for interaction. Transportation, scheduling and reliable assistance can be a concern. Try to make the most informed decision by asking people, visiting a few times and dont be forced into a decision by the sales pressure of any community or service. Pryce Dear Emily, I think you should visit some of the local retirement complexes but be well armed with information about your financial position and then talk to your financial adviser. There are many kinds of complexes available and I am sure you will find something you will like and can afford. Loneliness is a dreadful condition and I can understand why you would like to make a lifestyle move.

In 2013, 15 agencies in the fivecounty Southwest Florida area were the recipients of funds totaling $439,812 in Community Impact Grants provided by the foundation. For more information, visit the Southwest Florida Community Foundations website at or call 274-5900. Southwest Florida Community Foundations iLab in progress One of the Southwest Florida Community Foundation iLAB activities iLAB participants brainstorm during the event Beauty Inside Out: Let Nature Inspire You by Kay Casperson What inspires you? What invigorates you? What makes you happy? The timeless adage stop and smell the roses is good advice, and Ive always found that taking time to experience and appreciate the beauty of nature helps me feel centered and serene and influences me and my life in many positive ways whether its taking a moment between meetings to feel the sunshine on my face or spending a whole day out on the water with people I love. One of my favorite affirmations is I will love and protect nature. The words are simple but full of meaning, and its an affirmation I practice every day here in beautiful Southwest Florida. When I created my collection of skincare and beauty products, I drew inspiration for my ingredients from both land and sea healing herbs and botanicals, natural oils, vitamins and minerals, sea salt and skinconditioning marine extracts. My love of nature also inspires the clothes and jewelry I wear, the way I decorate my home, the products I use, the way I run my household and my business and, most importantly, the many ways in which my family and I interact with our environment. I was recently in Colorado during our annual vacation, and while the shift from sea level to mountaintop is always strange at first especially for a family of hikers I was constantly reminded how truly blessed we were to be able to experience that uniquely beautiful landscape. Being simultaneously surrounded by warm summer air and snow-capped mountains is an amazing feeling, and well be counting the days until we get to go back next year, but were so fortunate to be able to come home to an equally beautiful place renowned for its natural beauty. Inspiration is everywhere in Southwest Florida, but its easy to become disconnected from the outdoors too hot, too sunny, too many mosquitos, your allergies are flaring up. But if you prepare and take proper precautions like having plenty of sunscreen, bug spray and bottled water on hand theres nothing left to do but explore and enjoy the world around you! Get active outdoors and learn about all the treasures of Sanibel and Captiva by making a trip to the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, taking a dolphin cruise through Pine Island Sound or just strolling along the shoreline and stooping for shells. Go kayaking or horseback riding whenever you can. Take a bike ride with your family. If youre a morning person like me, start your days with a brisk walk on the beach and a dip in the Gulf of Mexico. If youre a night owl, plan for an outdoor evening meal under the moon and stars. If youre trying to work your way through a big decision or just calm your thoughts, simply go outdoors, sit still and experience natures beauty with all of your senses watch the way a sunset paints the sky, listen to the sound of birdsong and frogs, smell the aroma of jasmine, taste the salty sea air, feel the sand and water on your feet. Slow down once in a while, relax and let the beauty of nature inspire balance, peace and happiness in your life emotionally, spiritually, physically, environmentally and socially.
