With a unanimous vote, commissioners approved the preliminary plat for Wulfert Pointe Estates, a major subdivision consisting of 34 single-family lots and dwelling units, along with a tract for private roadways with drainage and utility easements, several tracts for conservation, and the dedication of additional public right-of-way along SanibelCaptiva and Wulfert roads. Formerly known as Phase III of Sanibel Bayous Subdivision-Northside of SanibelCaptiva Road, the 76.2-acre property is adjacent to the southernmost extension of Wulfert Road. Among the conditions for approval were the dedication of a 13,600-square-foot public park/recreation area to the city; dedication of a 50-foot wide maintenance easement abutting the western boundary of the property (between Sanibel-Captiva Road and Mud Pond) to the city for access to the Clam Bayou box culvert; and dedication to the city of an easement for viewing and preservation of the historical Oliver F. Bowen gravesite. Commissioners voted 6 to 0, with Chuck Ketteman absent, to approve the preliminary plat. Continued on page 34

Following a light meeting agenda, Valiquette was thanked for his service to Sanibel by his fellow commission members as well as planning department staff and city leaders. Its going to be strange to be talking up here and not be addressing you as part of this commission, said Vice Mayor Doug Congress during his council liaison report. Youve been a huge asset to this community and to this commission youre going to be missed on Sanibel. Jimmy Jordan, director of the citys planning department, noted during his report that Valiquette will be recognized by the city council during its meeting on September 16. Thank you for your years of service and for working with the planning department, added Jordan. Its been a pleasure. Mayor Kevin Ruane also thanked Valiquette for his friendship, and for all that youve done. I dont know whether youve done the math, but you have been working on behalf of Sanibel for more than 25 percent of the citys existence, said commissioner Chris Heidrick. Other members of the commission offered their kudos, with John Talmage saying that he would miss Valiquette both personally and professionally. Holly Smith presented a bottle of wine and a card to her long-time dais neighbor, adding, This island is a better place for you having been here. On the card was an inscription, You may leave, but the legend lives on. Before striking the gavel for the final time as chairman, Valiquette acknowledged his wife, Maureen, in the audience, and thanked his fellow commission members and city staff for their assistance and friendship over the years. Its been a true honor to serve this city, said Valiquette, an island resident for 25 years. I have no regrets whatsoever this is a fantastic commission and youre doing a wonderful job. Vice chairman Dr. Phillip Marks officially stepped up to the role of chairman; an election to fill Marks vacated vice chairman post will take place at the next planning commission meeting on August 26.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 15, 201414 Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellHopefully, most of us wont find ourselves in the courtroom anytime soon but, just in case, we all should know something about how the judicial system works in Florida. Floridas 20th Judicial Circuit Judge Amy Hawthorne and downtown Rotary Club member dropped by last Friday to expand on that topic for us. She then went on to outline the tiered judicial system here in Florida Florida Supreme Court, district courts of appeal, two forms of trial courts, 20 circuit courts and 67 county courts one for each of the Florida counties. The Supreme Court is the final arbiter of Florida law, and its decisions are binding authority for all other Florida state courts. District courts of appeal are the intermediate appellate courts. Circuit courts handle felony criminal cases, civil cases where the amount in controversy is greater than $15,000, as well as appeals from county courts. Circuit courts also have jurisdiction over domestic relations, juvenile dependency, juvenile delinquency and probate matters. County courts have jurisdiction over misdemeanor criminal cases, including violations of county and municipal ordinances, and in civil cases whose value in controversy does not exceed $15,000. In Florida, circuit judges are elected but, on occasion, a judge may retire or resign mid-term. In these situations, the governor then appoints a new judge to fill the vacancy. Hawthorne filled one of those vacancies in 2012. After a comprehensive vetting process, Hawthorne was appointed to her position on the circuit court by Governor Rick Scott in April 2012. She was assigned to the Hendry and Glades County courthouses and in September of that year transferred to the Charlotte County Courthouse. She presided over family, domestic violence and dependency dockets until January 2012. Hawthorne is currently serving the citizens of the 20th Judicial Circuit including Charlotte, Collier, Hendry, Glades and Lee counties as circuit court judge. Hawthorne is now running in her first election for circuit court judge. Prior to serving as circuit court judge, she was a magistrate on the civil docket for the 20th Judicial Circuit. She has been an attorney since 1993 and is a Florida Supreme Court certified mediator for family, circuit civil and county court cases. She has also taught as an adjunct professor at Florida SouthWestern College. Hawthorne explained that circuit court judge candidates cannot actively campaign for their positions; circuit judges are not allowed to cite their personal opinions or party affiliations. Judges should remain impartial to political influence and interpret state laws as written. Hawthorne gave some amazing statistics regarding the number of case filings that go before the circuit court: Charlotte County (population 165,000), 20,805 case filings, 20,000 depositions; Lee County (population 648,000), 94,000 Judge Amy Hawthorne 8/22/14case filings, 93,000 depositions. During recent years, a backlog of mortgage foreclosures has seen circuit judges handling as many as 200 cases a day. Most of these were uncontested defaults and were concluded by summary judgment decisions. A question was asked whether these decisions were based on robo-signing documents. Hawthorne said, Judges review all of the legal documents and affidavits presented to the courts before their decisions are made. Foreclosures were usually not protested or were conducted without legal representation fighting the foreclosures, mostly due to financial resources. Appeals to these decisions are not common but occasionally do present themselves. There is an enormous number of cases that comes before the court and it behooves us all to take note of the individuals serving as our circuit court judges. After all, you never know when you might find yourself in court. Get yourself a sample ballot for the upcoming election. Google the names and read up on who you are voting for in this election. Be a good citizen. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets at 7 a.m. every Friday at The Dunes Golf and Tennis Club, 949 Sand Castle Road.

Palmer family Fish Caught Shell Of The WeekThe Tampa Bay Top Snailby Jos H. Leal, PhD, The Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum Curator and Director of EducationThe scientific name of the Tampa Bay top snail, Calliostoma tampaense (Conrad, 1846), pays tribute not only to the place where the species was first found (the specific name tampaense), but also to a shell attribute, via the genus name Calliostoma, the pearly, beautiful (Greek kalos) shell opening, or mouth (Greek stoma). Calliostoma top snails are mostly omnivorous or feed on organic detritus, or, more rarely, carnivorous. The Tampa Bay top snail never reaches beyond an inch in size and is the most common of about four Calliostoma species found locally.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 15, 201416 Downsize Gear For Mangrove Snapper Actionby Capt. Matt MitchellMost of my guided trips this week were with families that were into finding good action for their younger children and going home with a fresh fish dinner. To keep adults and kids happy this week, I switched things up for a few days from the catch and release snook bite still going on in and around the passes and targeted mangrove snapper. The mangrove snapper bite right now is about as good as it gets with lots of quality fish and fast paced action. These fish just basically seem to keep everyone smiling and can be caught all over the sound and in the passes right now. Size wise, they are as big as they get all year for inshore fishing, with a few this week measuring up to 16 inches. Breaking out the 1/4-inch mesh cast net at first light and chumming up lots of small white bait was how to get a quality snapper trip started. Although we have not really had any good sized shiners around for months, there are lots of small ones that have been easy to catch in huge numbers. The small mesh cast net is key for this as you dont gill and kill the majority of this little bait. Catching enough of these little baits to be able to live chum really fires up these fish. A few scoops thrown up against a deep mangrove shoreline will have these snapper exploding on the surface as they chase down an easy meal and seem to appear out of nowhere. Live shrimp will work too but the shiners have been catching the bigger snapper and cutting down on the number of small bait stealer bites. Next, downsize your tackle. My preference is 1000 and 2500 series spinning reels on ultra light spinning rods. I like to spool these little reels with 10# braid which makes casting really light small baits much easier. To your braid, tie on a threeto four-foot section of 15or 20-pound fluorocarbon leader. Hook these small baits on a #1 or even a #2 light wire circle hook as it just lets the bait swim more naturally. Depending on the current where Im fishing, I might add a small split shot to slow the bait down some. When these snapper are really chummed up and feeding on the surface though, nothing beats a freelined bait and the visual strike it will produce. Snapper have really good eyesight so the lighter the tackle you can fish the more bites you will get. On ultra light rods, these mangrove snapper put up a great fight, making drag screaming runs. Catching a limit of five per person of fish all well over 12 inches has been pretty easy most days without having to run all over the place. Deeper mangrove points, shorelines and docks around the mouth of the river with good moving current have all been good places to get in on this fast paced snapper action. While live chumming for these snapper, there has also been a real mixed bag of other species getting in on the easy meal too including redfish, small snook, jacks and ladyfish. Downsizing to this light tackle really makes this some fast paced hard fighting fun. Watch the fish pop on the surface and just throw your bait where you see the pop or swirl. 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.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 15, 201418 CROW Case Of The Week: Baby Eastern Gray Squirrelsby Patricia MolloyThe Eastern gray squirrel (Sciurus carolinensis) is one of the most well-known mammals in the United States. As a treedweller, the EGS spends much of its life jumping from tree top to fence top and running on the ground in an erratic path. This unpredictable behavior is by design and the intelligent creatures way of regularly outwitting potential predators. In Native American folklore, the squirrel symbolizes trust and preparation. There are more than 260 species of squirrels worldwide ranging in size from the 10cm-long African pygmy squirrel to the massive, three-foot-long Indian giant squirrel. Eastern grays are considered medium-size at 15 to 20 inches in length. Last week, two tiny Eastern gray squirrels were brought to CROW. The twoto three-week-old babies were found alone and assumed to have been orphaned. No other history was available. It was quickly determined that the tiny squirrels were perfectly healthy. Baby animals are frequently brought into CROW by well-meaning citizens after discovering what they believe to be an abandoned nest. If a nest looks undisturbed and the mother is nowhere in sight, that is her plan. As skilled as the wildlife rehabilitators at CROW are, nothing can replace Moms tender loving care. Volunteers and staff members have nipple-fed the squirrels around the clock since they were admitted to the clinic. They are slowly growing into strong, healthy juveniles that will be released as soon as they are old enough to claim their own wild territories. Hopefully, they will go on to start families of their own. If you do find an injured wild animal, immediately contact CROW or one of the nine domestic veterinarian clinics it has partnered with in Lee County. CROW volunteers make daily pick-up excursions. While monetary donations are invaluable, it is the volunteers that have made CROW successful for more than four decades. They collectively donate thousands of hours each year performing necessary tasks that allow the doctors and medical interns (who often work more than 12 hours per day) to care for the thousands of sick, injured and orphaned patients that have been treated at CROW. If you are interested in grazing tortoises, feeding baby squirrels and exotic birds, Contact Volunteer Coordinator JoEllen Urasky at 472-3644 ext. 229. Training is provided. 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.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 15, 201420 Plant SmartVariegated Shell Ginger Lilyby Gerri ReavesVariegated shell ginger lily (Alpinia zerumbet variegata) is a semi-procumbent shrub, meaning that its stems lie along the ground without rooting. This native of India and the South Pacific Islands usually reaches no more than six feet in height and has a moderate growth rate. The term variegata refers to the green and yellow diagonal markings on the leaves. These asymmetrical bands extending from the midrib give the plant its ornamental appeal. Each clumping cane, or stem, bears six to 12 elliptical or lanceolate leaves in a spiral formation. Each leaf is one to two feet long and about five inches across. The clusters of white shell-like flowers arch at the end of the stems. Each small flower resembles a sea shell, thus the common name. It prefers partial shade, and with full sun becomes even more horizontal in form, the tubers creeping along the ground. It has poor salt tolerance, is not particularly drought tolerant, and requires irrigation. It also needs fertile well-drained soil and fertilizer to do best. Use it as a container, border or accent plant. Propagate by clump division. A dwarf cultivar is available too. Sources: Florida, My Eden by Frederic B.

21 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 15, 2014 Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation Wildlife Habitat Management Director Chris Lechowicz holds two of the nine eastern indigo snakes born at the SCCF Nature Center earlier this month photos by Jeff Lysiak Closeup of an eastern indigo snakeSCCFs First Hatch Of Indigo Snakes Since 1999by Jeff LysiakThe birth of nine young reptiles doesnt necessarily warrant headlines very often. But when youre talking about a particular species of snake, the news is decidedly noteworthy. Chris Lechowicz, director of the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundations Wildlife Habitat Management office, reported that a clutch of nine eastern indigo snakes has been born at SCCFs Nature Center, the first emerging from its egg on August 1 and the last on August 5. They are the first documented eastern indigos born on Sanibel since 1999. I consider it a very significant achievement, said Lechowicz, who launched the SCCF Pine Island Sound Eastern Indigo Snake Project in 2012. The eastern indigo snake was once common on Sanibel and Captiva islands. Observations really started to taper off in the later 1980s, and the last known indigo snake was hit by a bicycle on the Indigo Trail on the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge in February 1999. According to Lechowicz, that snake was taken to CROW but died shortly afterward. Since then, surveys, trapping protocols and educational programs asking island residents to document new specimens have failed in verifying any remaining snakes. Thus, the eastern indigo appears to be extirpated from Sanibel and Captiva. As part of the SCCF Pine Island Sound Eastern Indigo Snake Project, Indie a 3-year-old eastern indigo snake which resides at the SCCF Nature Center was bred with a privately-owned indigo living in Lakeland earlier this year. On May 5, Indie laid a clutch of 10 eggs. Lechowicz noted that indigo snake eggs must be incubated in an environment between 75 and 80 degrees, which is a little bit cooler than most snake eggs prefer. Also, while other snake eggs hatch in about 60 days, eastern indigos incubate an average of 90 days. Basically, this is a Central American snake at the northern edge of its range,continued on page 37 Chris Lechowicz holds Indie, the eastern indigo which laid 10 eggs, of which nine hatched earlier this month PALM RIDGE PLACE PALM RIDGE PLACE 2330 Palm Ridge Road, Sanibel Island, FL 2330 Palm Ridge Road, Sanibel Island, FL (across from CVS) (across from CVS) (239) 472-1111 (239) 472-1111 Special gift Special gift for for Back To School Back To School cuts cuts Sanibels First Beauty/Barber est. 1951 Sanibels First Beauty/Barber est. 1951Sanibel Beauty Salon ISLAND ISLAND PHARMACY PHARMACY(Voted Best Pharmacy on The Island 6 years)CARING FOR YOU AND ABOUT YOUPhone 472-6188Fax 472-61442330 Palm Ridge Rd. #12, Sanibel Tk O Sanibels FavoriteDelicatessen WINNER Best Pizza Taste of the Islands BOARS HEAD BOARS HEAD OPEN OPEN SUNDAYS SUNDAYS NOW OPEN NOW OPEN FOR INDOOR FOR INDOOR SEATING SEATINGOpen 7 DaysBreakfast, Lunch & Dinner & LaterWe Cater!

In 2013, CROWs wildlife hospital cared for 3,391 sick, injured and orphaned animals. Of the 200 different species, 60 percent were birds, with 33 percent mammals and seven percent reptiles. CROW is not permitted to display its patients publically, so this hour-long presentation offers the next best thing: numerous candid snapshots of current and past patients, with commentary by Claudia Burns, a veteran clinic volunteer. The next CROW Picture Show is on Friday August 15 at 11 a.m. in CROWs Visitor Education Center at 3883 SanibelCaptiva Road, across from The Sanibel School. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for teens, free for members and children 12 and under.

23 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 15, 2014 Doc Fords Hosts Book SigningFans of New York Times best-selling author Randy Wayne White will be excited to learn that he will be kicking off his national book tour and signing copies of his latest novel, Haunted, at Doc Fords Sanibel Rum Bar & Grille on Sunday, August 17 and Monday, August 18. In Haunted, the third installment in the Hannah Smith series, Hannah returns in a stunning new adventure from the author of the Doc Ford novels. The house is historic, some say haunted. It is also slated to be razed and replaced by condos, unless Hannah Smith can do something about it. Shes been hired by a wealthy Palm Beach widow to prove that the houses seller didnt disclose everything he knew about the place when he unloaded it, including its role in a bloody Civil War skirmish (in which two of Hannahs own distant relations had had a part), and the suicides or were they murders? of two previous owners. Hannah sees it as a win-win opportunity: She can stop the condo project while tracking her family history. She doesnt believe in ghosts, anyway. But some things are more dangerous than ghosts. Among them, as she will learn, perhaps fatally, is human obsession. Signing events will take place on Sunday, August 17 from noon to 2 p.m. and from 4 to 6 p.m., and again on Monday, August 18 from noon to 2 p.m. Each event will begin with a 15-minute question and answer session. The beautiful tropical location invites you to make an afternoon or evening of it. Savor Doc Fords famous Island Mojitos; enjoy meals featuring award-winning flavors from the Caribbean rim. Copies of Haunted are available for purchase at all three Doc Fords locations Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel and the newest location on Captiva Island.

I sense a punishment. Have I loved you too well, or not passionately enough? Is there a vault somewhere deep bound with weeds and moon-minions who hold the key to your sea-scrolled treasures? Leave, at least your silken sand, the ghosts of shells, their final incarnation, and I will tread lightly, hold tightly, one single shell in my hand.

Rauschenberg Gallery Debuts Moon MuseumIn celebration of the 10-year anniversary of the renaming of the Gallery of Fine Art at Florida SouthWestern State College (formerly Edison State College), fall programming will focus exclusively on the enduring legacy and profound global (even extraterrestrial) impact of namesake artist Bob Rauschenberg. From October 22 through December 17, the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery will premiere RAUSCHENBERG: China/America Mix the first solo exhibition of the artists work at the gallery since his death in 2008. The first ever Space Art object will be landing at FSW in the meantime with the installation: The Moon Museum (1969): Apollo XIIs Secret Art Mission, on display from August 22 to September 27. The Moon Museum (1969): Apollo XIIs Secret Art Mission will present the little-known Rauschenberg/Experiments in Art & Technology (EAT) project that clandestinely sent and permanently sited original artwork by six artists on the lunar surface in 1969. A postage stamp-sized, paper-thin multiple, the Moon Museum was the brainchild of New York sculptor Forrest Frosty Myers. A group of the most significant artists of the time including John Chamberlain, David Novros, Claes Oldenburg, Andy Warhol and Bob Rauschenberg joined Myers in contributing individual drawings that engineers at Bell Laboratories transferred (using a then cutting-edge photo-reduction technique developed for micro-circuitry) onto a handful of identical ceramic wafers. The first-ever Space Art object, one copy of The Moon Museum multiple was then surreptitiously attached to the Apollo XII lunar landing LEM 6, and has now, consequently, resided on the surface of the moon for the last 45 years. As Myers has described it, Darwinian evolution seemed to happen in fossil time, but seeing man leave the Earth and step foot on the moon was both instant and epic. Myers was inspired by the success of Apollo XI to propose sending art to the moon his art and the art of those artists he most admired. Wanting nothing more than to put something soulful up where typically NASA had left detritus and hardware behind, nearly a half century later, The Moon Museum (with drawings by Rauschenberg, Chamberlain, Oldenburg, Novros, Myers and Warhol) is still a compelling art object and continues to resonate in the imagination. Following the return of The Moon Museum from its first presentation (an exhibition co-organized by the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery with support from the U.S. Department of State and National Geographic magazine) at the National Gallery of Art in Tbilisi, Georgia (former Soviet Union) last November, the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery at FSW will allow Southwest Florida visitors the rare opportunity to view in-person one of the few original Moon Museum (1969) ceramic tile multiples, along with vintage NASA press photographs, film shot by Apollo XII astronauts and related missionflown artifacts. Bob Rauschenberg Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.; closed Sundays and holidays.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 15, 201432 Hortoons New School Year About To BeginThe Childrens Education Center of the Islands school year begins on the same day as Lee Countys schools, on Monday, August 18. Dylan Stevens reminds us that Its the process, not the product that is most important when children are creating art. Having fun through art is a great way for children to develop awareness and appreciation of pleasant sensory experiences, visually express thoughts and feelings, learn to value and appreciate differences, learn to follow directions and try out their ideas. Art enhances important cognitive and physical skills as well as confidence and pride. For young children, the process of creating is what is most important, not what they actually create. The Childrens Center of the Islands is a non-profit preschool offering full time and part time classes for children ages 2 to 5. They offer Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) from the hours of 9 a.m. to noon Monday through Friday for free. Last years VPK Readiness Rates from The Sanibel School was 94 percent. Wrap around care for VPK students is offered as well at competitive rates. The preschool is currently accepting applications for the 2014-15 school year beginning on August 18. There will be an Open House for new students on Friday, August 15 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. For more information, stop by the school or call 472-4538. CECI is located at 350 Casa Ybel Road on Sanibel. Dylan Stevens Book Review Hauntedby Di SaggauRandy Wayne White is one of Floridas most popular authors, named a Florida Literary Legend by the Florida Heritage Society. He is most famous for his numerous Doc Ford novels but he also writes about a female sleuth, Hannah Smith. She returns for a third time in his latest novel Haunted. Hannah is a fishing boat captain who inherited her late uncles private investigation business. In between chartering fishing expeditions for locals in and around Sanibel and Captiva Islands, she also tackles some private eye work. Its a tough business, but Hannah is a tough cookie and up to the challenge. A wealthy Palm Beach widow hires Hannah in the hopes she can prove that a historic house was sold without the seller disclosing everything he knew about the place. Many think the house is haunted. It also played a role in a bloody Civil War skirmish in which Hannahs own great-uncle Captain Summerlin played a part. Two previous owners of the house either committed suicide or were murdered and its up to Hannah to figure out what happened. Hannah discovers Summerlins journal, written in the 1800s, which tells the tale about men who had lived and died during desperate times. The journal contains a great deal of information which fires up her curiosity. Hannah and her trusted friend Birdy, a deputy sheriff, have their jobs cut out for them. They meet up with some colorful and sometimes shady characters, including fake archeologists and real ones. Some are on the hunt for a Civil War payload of gold, others for a cache of old silver dollars that would fetch a handsome price in todays market. The book is rich with Florida history. The journal also talks about the importance of salt during the Civil War. Today, we take salt for granted but this commodity has shaped civilization from the very beginning. Haunted is another fascinating read from Randy Wayne White. You can meet the author during his upcoming local book signings. Hell be at Doc Fords Rum Bar and Grille on Sanibel Sunday, August 17 from noon to 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Hell also be there on Monday, August 18 from noon to 2 p.m. On Tuesday, August 19, you can meet him at Barnes & Noble in Fort Myers at 7 p.m. On Thursday, August 21, hell be at the Sanibel Island Bookshop at 7:30 p.m. To advertise in the Island Sun Call 395-1213

All city board, commission and committee meetings are now being recorded on audio, which is available on the citys website, said Zimomra, who noted that those meeting agendas, minutes and audio recordings may be accessed anywhere in the world a user has access to the Internet. Currently, users may listen to meetings via live streaming in real time or at a later date. Clerks administering meetings are adding a time-stamp to those recordings, meaning that users may access any portion of the meeting they want to listen to. Very nice this is very impressive, said commission chairman Michael Valiquette. Also, planning director Jimmy Jordan introduced the latest planning department project tasks list. It contains projects including commercial redevelopment, dark skies, pervious pavers for multi-family and architectural standards/guidelines; cleaning up legislation including notification to adjacent property owners for development permits and scrivners errors within the Land Development Code; consultant projects including FEMA/FIRM maps and flood historical; special internal projects including digitization of planning documents and upgrading permitting software; tasks including digitized zoning maps and analysis of planning department fees related to permit activities; along with an annual review of subcommittees including the Land Development Code Review, Capital Improvements Review, Below Market Rate Housing Review and Permitting Process Review.

McIlroys Darkness PGA Victory Sets The Stage For The 2015 Mastersby Ed FrankThe toughest ticket in all of sports is one to the revered Masters Golf Tournament each April at the Augusta National Golf Course. If the prized ticket was elusive in the past, you will probably have to empty your bank account to get one next April because of the name Rory McIlroy. In capturing his second major in a row last weekend with his PGA victory, this 25-year-old golfing sensation from Northern Ireland has moved to the pinnacle of sports once held by the likes of Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan and others. He now owns four major titles with only the elusive Masters needed to complete golfs Grand Slam. So mark your calendars now for April 9 to 12, 2015 the dates for next springs Masters. Hours after his Sunday PGA victory at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, he was installed the 9-2 favorite for next years Masters. And should he complete the slam, he will have accomplished what only five other legends have done Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Gene Sarazen, Ben Hogan and Gary Player. Last Sundays final round of the PGA drew the largest golf television audience in nearly 10 years. Playing on rain-soaked Valhalla, McIllroy shot 68 on the final 18, besting Phil Mickelson by a stroke and Rickie Fowler and Henrik Stenson by two. That victory came in near darkness as a morning downpour (an inch of rain fell in less than an hour) delayed play for nearly two hours. One newspaper labeled McIlroy the prince of darkness, and his winning performance reminded this writer of one of baseballs most famous moments the Homer in the Gloamin. The date was September 28, 1938, and with darkness descending upon Chicagos Wrigley Field, the Cubs Gabby Hartnett launched a winning home run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning against the Pittsburgh Pirates that catapulted the Cubs to the National League pennant. When McIllroy completes golfs grand slam, and he is certain to do so with so many years ahead of him, last Sundays PGA victory in approaching darkness may become as famous as the Homer in the Gloamin. Miracle Shifts to JetBlue Park for Final Month and Playoffs With the extensive remodeling of Hammond Stadium moving to Phase II, the Fort Myers Miracle baseball team will play their remaining home games and playoffs at JetBlue Park at Fenway South. The Miracle open a three-game home series today, Friday, against the Palm Beach Cardinals with the first pitch at 7:05 p.m. The Saturday game, Fan Appreciation Night, features a huge fireworks show following the 6:05 p.m. game. The series concludes with a 4:05 p.m. Sunday matinee. Fans can purchase tickets for the seasons remaining home games and the playoffs at the team store at JetBlue Park which is located east of I-75 on Daniels Parkway. As Florida State League South Division Champions for the seasons first-half, the Miracle have secured a playoff spot. The Miracle began this week having won four straight games and climbed within one-half game behind first-place Bradenton in the South Division with a 29-19 record in the seasons second half. Only 22 games remained in the regular season. Tickets Now on Sale for Season-Ending LPGA Tournament The CMA Group Tour Championship, November 17 to 23 At Tiburon Golf Club in Naples, concludes the LPGAs season with golfs biggest prize for the women golfers.

37 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 15, 2014 From page 21Indigo Snakeshe explained. That may have something to do with it. Dee Serage-Century, SCCFs Landscaping for Wildlife director, witnessed the newborn snakes emerging from their eggs, since the incubator was located in her office. Nine of the eggs successfully hatched, which Lechowicz noted was also typical. They sure are some healthy-looking babies! said Serage-Century, who added that seven of the nine young snakes have a red speckling pattern on them; the other two are completely black. The eastern indigo snake ( Drymarchon couperi) is a docile, mostly black non-venomous snake native to the southeastern United States. Indigo snakes have a reddish neck and chin and are often confused with the southern black racer snake. Males average six to eight feet in length and females average five to six feet in length. They are extremely docile and pose no threat to humans. They are called indigo snakes because their black scales reflect blue or purple when the sunlight is upon them at the right angle. This species is listed as threatened by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service as well as the state of Florida, so it is protected from take, collection, commercialization and harassment throughout its range. Lechowicz also stated that the loss of indigo snakes on Sanibel and Captiva was mostly due to roadkills. Major roads like Periwinkle Way and Sanibel-Captiva Road run through the middle of the island, bisecting major tracts of land that once contained indigo snake habitat. At least one of the newborn indigo snakes which have already begun to shed their first skins even before theyve had their first meal will remain at the SCCF Nature Center for educational purposes. To help support the SCCF Pine Island Sound Eastern Indigo Snake Project, Lechowicz is selling T-shirts to help raise awareness about what they are doing to benefit the species. To purchase a shirt ($20 each) or make a donation, send an email to or call 4723984. From page 9Car Showeach others joy for cars.

Breusch, CFA, Investment AssociatePerformance across most major asset classes was positive during the second quarter of 2014. Domestic and international equities continued to appreciate across various sectors and market capitalization ranges. Considering the overall equity markets appreciation now several years in the making it is reasonable to question valuation levels. While we focus most of our attention on the individual businesses we buy on behalf of our clients, we also consider broader market metrics to help inform our asset-allocation decisions. One way to gauge broad equity market valuation is by comparing todays price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) relative to historical averages. Though equity markets have appreciated substantially over the past several years, the upward movement in price has been justified by growth in earnings, which has kept the P/E ratio in the mid-teens. While equity markets are no longer broadly inexpensive, they are not overvalued either compared to long-term historical averages. Rather, we view equity markets as fairly valued. The businesses we buy are increasing their revenues and earnings and either reinvesting for further growth or distributing cash to shareholders via dividends, share buybacks, or debt retirement. We will pay more for a company with above-average growth potential, but overall we generally purchase these companies in client portfolios at valuation levels below that of the broader market. Going forward, we expect equities to appreciate at rates commensurate with their underlying business results. In other words, a reversion to long-runcontinued on page 46

Because it is difficult for many people to visualize the threedimensional effect of furniture placement, costly mistakes are often made during the initial phases of a new design project, even if only a re-arrangement of the furnishings in a room. Careful planning is necessary for proper balance. The dimensional qualities of each piece of furniture must be taken into consideration. Whether dealing with a very large room or one of a more modest size, here are a few dos and donts for successful furniture arranging: DO, space permitting, float your furniture in the room by pulling it away from the walls. Furniture lined up against the walls of a room tend to take on the look of an office waiting room. DO place large pieces first. Placing smaller pieces such as lamp tables and accent pieces first will only serve to frustrate you as you attempt to attain a balanced grouping. DONT use too many matched sets of tables, lamps, chairs or accessories in the same room. While matching pieces do help to unify a room, too many pairs will make your room resemble a furniture store display. Balance is best achieved by scale, visual weight and rhythm, rather than matched sets. DO remember that the human eye prefers odd numbers over even. Three pieces in a set will always be easier on the eye than two or four. That third throw pillow on your sofa will avoid the regimental look of a pair. DONT use only one material for your tables or for your upholstered furniture. Mix metal, glass, wood and stone in your table assortment and use fabrics that complement each other beautifully, but dont actually match. DO be aware of any awkward architectural elements in your home and attempt to place furniture and accessories in a manner that will minimize their impact in your overall design. DO try to place your furniture in an interesting configuration that will facilitate good conversation. Remember that the optimum separation for people engaged in conversation is 6 to 8 feet. DONT hesitate to call us or another professional designer if you need assistance in arrangement or to deal with some missing pieces in your furnishings scheme.continued on page 47


ISLAND SUN AUGUST 15, 201440 School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, Both of my kids are going to new schools in the fall, one to middle school and one to high school. We are a bit concerned about how the kids will transition to these new schools and are looking for some ways to help them with these changes. Samantha J., Cape Coral Samantha, Transitioning to a new school can be an exciting but stressful time for children. Even when the change is positively anticipated, such as graduating to the next school level, facing the unknown can cause anxiety. These higher-grade level environments tend to be larger, possibly less nurturing, more departmentalized and competitive, and more demanding academically. And students are expected to be more independent academically and their social lives become more complex and intense. It is understandable that parents feel some anxiety about these changes, but there are many ways for parents to help smooth the transition and support their childs academic social/academic success in their new school environment. It is important to understand and anticipate common concerns related to moving to a secondary school environment: Environment: Finding lockers, finding lunchrooms and bathrooms, getting through crowded hallways, getting to class on time, getting on the right bus to go home, lack of experience in dealing with extracurricular activities Workload: Keeping up with materials, new grading standards and procedures, more long term assignments, lack of basic academic skills Social: More peers pressures (i.e., cliques, dealing with older students and students from other schools), social immaturity Schedule: Remembering which class to go to next, more teachers, no recess, no free time Other: Reduced parent involvement, accepting more responsibility for their own actions, unrealistic parental expectations, coping with adolescent physical development Parents can help their child prepare for and become comfortable with their new school environment: Emphasize positive aspects of middle/high school: With the move will come more opportunities for individuality and freedom and an increasing choice in elective courses and extracurricular activities. There will be more opportunities to find friends with common interests. Teach study skills: Help students begin to self-regulate by breaking down large tasks into manageable pieces and provide guidelines so students can monitor their own progress. Familiarize students with using an agenda/assignment book to keep track of daily and long-term assignments. Schedule tours of new school: During the summer prior to entering the school students and parents should arrange for a tour of the school. If possible, parents can request the students schedule from the school counselor or administrator so that the student can locate classes and walk their schedule to determine best routes. If your school offers an orientation session, make a point to attend. Encourage participation: Whether in extracurricular activities, extra-help homework programs, or school social/sports activities, students should be encouraged to seek these out as an opportunity to meet new people. Many schools offer an open house or fair during the first week of school to introduce new students to available activities. Continue or increase involvement: Middle and high schools continue to have numerous opportunities available for parent involvement. Parents should maintain communication with the school through meetings, e-mail/Internet, phone calls and notes. If you have concerns, dont wait for the school to contact you. Look out for regular newsletters and other forms of communication home regarding events at the school. Preventive transition planning like this can go a long way to minimizing or eliminating adjustment problems when the school year begins.

41 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 15, 2014 This just in from the reaching out from the grave department: Can you impose conditions on your grandchildrens inheritance, such as requiring them to marry someone within your faith or else they lose the trust funds? The Illinois Supreme Court ruled that you can impose such restrictions. Looking at In re Estate of Feinberg, Max Feinberg created a trust in which he declared that any grandchildren or lower descendants who marry outside of the Jewish faith are to be treated as if the grandchild predeceased the grandparents, thereby denying the grandchild a share of the inheritance unless the spouse of such descendant has converted to the Jewish faith. The parties to the litigation call this the Jewish clause. An Illinois circuit court held that this Jewish clause was invalid and an appellate court confirmed, both finding the clause unenforceable and against public policy. Generally speaking, courts will find such constraints against public policy if they either encourage divorce or discourage marriage itself. One of the judges of the appellate court disagreed, stating that the clause should be held valid. Max and Erla had a dream to preserve their 4,000-year-old heritage, Justice Alan J. Greiman noted. Max and Erla Feinberg were survived by five grandchildren. All of the grandchildren married, but only one married a Jew. Several cases erupted against the estate plan. They were consolidated into one case and the question about the Jewish clause went to the appellate court. One of the grandchildren, Michele Trull, who had married a non-Jew, sued the co-executors of the estates. Those executors happened to be Micheles father, her aunt and uncle. Michele claimed that the three had engaged in a conspiracy to evade estate taxes and had misappropriated millions of dollars from her grandparents estates. Apparently, the amounts left in the grandchildrens shares exceeded the Feinbergs generation skipping tax exemption. So the executors sought to enforce the Jewish clause to pull amounts back to the childrens generation, to which the executors belonged. The executors of the estate sought to have Micheles case dismissed because the Jewish clause deemed Michele to have predeceased her grandparents and, therefore, she had no interest in the estate. The appellate courts opinion explored the public policy argument voiding the Jewish clause. Such a clause is invalid if it encourages disruption of a family relationship, discourages formation or resumption of such a relationship, or seriously interferes with a beneficiarys freedom to obtain a divorce or exercise his or her freedom to marry. It is conceivable that such clauses could just as well result in the courts being required to enforce the worst bigotry imaginable, Justice Quinn noted. Courts are not well suited to decide all the various questions that might arise in the enforcement of such conditions. What would happen if one of Max and Erlas grandchildren initially married a nonJewish person but subsequently married a Jewish person? Would the grandchild be resurrected upon the second marriage? Justice Greiman, on the other hand, who dissented, examined a multitude of cases from outside Illinois. Most were decided in the 1950s or earlier and sided with enforcing such a clause. According to those cases, partial restraints on marriage are valid unless they are unreasonable and, therefore, conditions on gifts prohibiting a beneficiary from marrying a specific individual have been upheld. Given the heated exchange between justices Greiman and Quinn, the Illinois Supreme Court agreed to hear the case and reversed the lower and appellate courts rulings, holding in a unanimous ruling that the Jewish clause was valid and enforceable. Although those plans might be offensive to individual family members or to outside observers, Max and Erla were free to distribute their bounty as they saw fit and to favor grandchildren whose life choices they approved, Illinois Justice Rita Garman wrote. The appellate courts concern as to whether the clause encouraged heirs to divorce and remarry to claim an inheritance was rejected by the Illinois Supreme Court. Erla did not impose a condition intended to control future decisions of their grandchildren regarding marriage or the practice of Judaism; rather, she made a bequest to reward, at the time of her death, those grandchildren whose lives most closely embraced the values she and Max cherished, Garman wrote. James Carey, an attorney representing Trull, said his client was disappointed with the Supreme Courts decision. Steven Resnicoff, co-director of the DePaul College of Laws Center for Jewish Law & Judaic Studies, hailed the court decision as consistent with Illinois public policy. Its not just a Jewish clause. Its a Catholic clause, its a Muslim clause, Resnicoff said. Its not uncommon that people want to encourage their children to follow in their footsteps. Craig R. Hersch.

We encourage all our local tourism industry partners to get involved in one or both: The Island Hopper Songwriter Fest in September and October and Restaurant Week in November. Both events are designed to drive visitation during the slower fall months, and now is the time for our partners to get involved so we can maximize exposure for local businesses while offering visitors deals to encourage participation. First up will be our Island Hopper Songwriter Fest, which will bring live entertainment by award-winning, nationally-recognized singer-songwriters to Captiva Island from September 26 to 28 and Fort Myers Beach from October 3 to 5. Songwriters who have penned No. 1 hits for such artists as Garth Brooks, Brad Paisley, Lee Ann Womack, Kellie Pickler, Montgomery Gentry, Trace Adkins, Easton Corbin, Mark Chesnutt, Sammy Kershaw and Justin McBride will perform at multiple venues simultaneously over the two weekends. With dozens of free shows to select from, attendees will have the unique opportunity to experience the voices, back stories and personalities of the artists in intimate island settings. The VCB is joined by Broadcast Music Inc., iHeart Radio and Cat Country 107.1 (Clear Channel Media) in presenting the festival. The VCB is encouraging partners to get involved by offering deals that we can promote with the festival. Partners can add those deals by logging onto the VCB website and uploading the specifics. For help with that process, contact Justin Friede with marketing partner MMGY Global at 226-0095 or Then in November, the VCB will host the third annual Restaurant Week to strengthen our agri-tourism assets and shine a light on the culinary opportunities available here to locals and visitors alike. Restaurant Week is scheduled for November 2 to 8 and will highlight restaurants that serve locally sourced products and engage in sustainable business practices. The VCB will be marketing local chefs and special menus at participating restaurants and hosting several culinary experiences during the week-long celebration, which we hope will encourage all local tourism businesses to feature culinary partnerships in their marketing plans. The event will be promoted online at Any restaurant located in Lee County is welcome to participate by simply offering a signature dish or a prix fixe menu for the seven-day event. Additional details about participating and promotional opportunities is available online. Both the Songwriter Fest and Restaurant Week will be important in helping ensure a successful fall visitation season.

The owners, Billy and Salli Kirkland, were excited to finally offer their services to the general public. Billy had been operating bike and beach rental locations at many of the island resorts since 1985. With the Periwinkle location, he was able to offer bicycles, baby trailers, surreys, wheelchair bikes and beach equipment to add to the recreational experience of all islanders and visitors. Billys Rentals has since played a big part in encouraging everyone to showcase Sanibel as a bikeable community. Kirkland talks with his customers every day at his seven-day operation and said, Biking has become very popular on the island. Travelers from around the world come to Sanibel to ride bikes. They love the laid-back style and the ability to slow down in a fast-paced world. Families love biking together, especially to the beaches and out for dinner. We feel great about getting people out of their cars, increasing healthy activity and reducing carbon footprints. The success of the business inspired the Kirklands to seek an additional rental location at Baileys, which opened in June. In addition to bike and beach chair rentals, the new location offers retail items and paddleboard (SUP) rentals. Mark Melancon of Yolo Board Adventures partners with Billys to provide boards, lessons and/or guided tours. Kirkland said, Billys Rentals would not exist if it werent for our dedicated staff, the support of the local community and the City of Sanibel.

Billys at Baileys Insurance Tip What Should You Insure Your Home For?by Angela Larson RoehlThe answer is not as simple as you may think. Insurance agents are not licensed appraisers and to get a correct assessment on what your home should be insured for, you should do one of two things (or even both) to be more proactive in insuring that your home coverage will be sufficient in case of a loss: 1. Have a licensed appraiser appraise the home. 2. Talk with local builders to determine the cost it would be to replace your home based on the same square footage and likeness. Local builders are a wealth of information. They know what it takes to re-build homes here on the island, which have to comply with 170 mph wind speeds, with all the proper hurricane and impact rated windows, doors, roofing, siding and strapping per the 2010 Florida Building Code. The sales price and the tax valuation of a home is not an indicator that should be used in order to establish what coverage you should carry. The same applies to your mortgage amount. You should not insure your home on what you owe on your mortgage. Your mortgage amount will decrease as payments are made over time, however, the cost to rebuild usually does not decrease over time. Your bank may only require that you insure your home for the loan amount. This may not be what it costs to replace your home in case of a loss and you could be penalized if the carrier sees that you underinsured your home and instead of settling the loss on replacement cost basis, the loss would be settled on actual cash value. This is never a good thing for the client. If the homes coverage is found to be inadequate at the time of a loss, the claim payment and/or coverage could be penalized. You may be tempted to insure your home for less coverage in order to save a few dollars, but dont let the minimal amount saved cost you the ability to rebuild your home should a loss occur.

Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: I am not in a good space right now and I feel full of conflict with certain family members. How can I come to some peace?A: When we lack peace in our lives, it is due to our mind feeling overwhelmed with attachments towards others that have been cultivated upon us. Once you can get to cultivation of mental peace and happiness, a perfect state of universal peace is possible. It has to start with each individual. In my own experience, the way I have achieved peace is through forgiveness. This does not make it easy, yet it can be achieved. Any judgments, criticisms, negativity toward you was done out of those feelings about the person who made them. For whatever reason, the person who judges and attempts to make your life uneasy, is struggling within. If you can see that and learn to forgive that person who has ill will against you, you are only freeing yourself to experience a sense of joy, free of any negative thoughts and feelings, then you are experiencing peace. You can also achieve genuine peace and contentment through wishing others happiness. Give others positive messages from your heart and you will experience more and more peace within yours.

Dear Mom & Me, I retired recently and I just love it, except for one situation. My wife is constantly asking me to do things she wants done, and I want to do the things I have always dreamed of being able to do if only I had the time in my own home. I wish she would have a more active womans social life, get a job or something... but get out of my hair. What do you suggest I do? Merton Dear Merton, The retirement lifestyle takes adjustment for most couples. We usually hear women complaining about men invading their sacred space. I would try and have a discussion in a non-threatening atmosphere and let her know how you feel. Encourage her to get some interest that will take her out of your home so you can have some alone time. Your wife may also have some complaints it is all part of the adjustment to the retired life style. Lizzie Dear Merton, Welcome to the world of retirement. Women have complained about their newly-retired husbands invading their lifestyle and the home for years. The biggest problem seems to be that their husbands become very critical and feel they can run the home as they have run their offices, e.g. boxes for outgoing mail, alphabetizing the spice shelf and refusing to answer or take messages on the phone. Sorry, no sympathy here. I recommend you discuss with your wife what your problems are and come to a decision as to how you can both be happy in your retirement. Your father and grandfather probably never lived to have a retirement problem. Pryce Lizzie and Pryces email address is From page 38Portfolio Review And Strategyaverage rates of return seems reasonable, meaning we should expect stock market performance to average closer to 7 to 9 percent per year, as opposed to the above-average returns we were pleased to earn over the past several years. Fixed-income investments also moved modestly higher during the first half of the year, as interest rates held near historical lows. Our longer-term thinking regarding bonds remains unchanged, but is worth repeating. Though the timing is difficult to predict (perhaps sometime next year), it remains inevitable that interest rates will rise. It is also inevitable that when (not if) interest rates rise, fixed-income investments will drop in price. As rates move higher, bond prices fall so that the coupon payments and current yield stay competitive with newly issued securities. We expect fixed-income investors will find themselves earning meager (if not negative) real rates of return as this occurs. For this reason, we have largely avoided fixed-income investments and will continue to do so until interest rates rise, which will lower the inherent price risk and improve bonds total-return characteristics. In the meantime, we continue to use high-quality dividend stocks, preferred stock, and master limited partnerships (MLPs) for many clients requiring current income. Eden Energy MedicineEEM First Aid Ileocecal Valve Explainedby Karen L. Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAML (03-12)In the column last week, you learned how to fix stomach upset with the Ileocecal valve. So, what is it and what does it do? The valve rhythmically opens and shuts to process waste from food, hormones and chemicals that continually move through the bloodstream. If the valves rhythm is imbalanced, more significant health problems may present since the toxins are backing up into the bodys systems. One may experience lower backache, bronchitis, eczema, digestive ongoing discomforts, toxic buildup in the kidneys all of which Donna Eden has seen resolve by resetting the Ileocecal valve (page 283 of Energy Medicine). That is not to say that this will always happen, but the re-balancing of this valve has dramatic impact and helps reset the other valves in the body as well. When testing clients after resetting the valve, I have seen dramatic shifts. So try the exercise described last week to clear this valve. If that didnt seem to work and you still have discomfort in this area, try: 1. Lay down. Push the fingers of both hands deeply into the Ileocecal valve (inside the right hip bone per last weeks column) while slowly lifting the right knee toward the trunk of the body until you reach a 90 degree angle. 2. Slowly straighten the right leg while continuing to push in on the valve. Hold for three breaths. 3. Release and do the 3 Thumps of the 5-Minute Routine (Kidney 27 points; thymus at the middle of the sternum and spleen (on the side of body four inches below the middle of the arm pit). There is another valve that is referred to as the Houston valve, which is located on the left side of the body. By doing the exercise described last week, but placing one hand on the left side and one hand on the right, you will reset this valve as well. Have fun with your energy!

47 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 15, 2014 UNITE Award Applications Now OpenThe application process for the 2015 UNITE (Uniting Nonprofits In Teaming for Excellence) Award is now open and will close on Tuesday, September 30. Established by Myers, Brettholtz & Company, PA and supported by the Southwest Florida Community Foundation, the Cape Coral Community Foundation and the United Way of Lee, Hendry and Glades Counties, the UNITE Award is a regional award that recognizes successful nonprofit collaborative models across Southwest Floridas five-county area that exemplify excellence and community impact. Its goal is to provide information to the nonprofit community about collaborative models that have succeeded in our area and to share proven effective practices for nonprofits working together. The Bob Janes Triage Center/Low Demand Shelter was the winner of the inaugural UNITE Award in January 2014 and received the $25,000 cash prize. In addition, each of the runners up, Families First: Childrens Advocacy Center of Southwest Florida Inc. and Child Care of Southwest Florida, Inc., and Southwest Florida Addiction Services/Lee Mental Health Merger, received $2,500 thanks to funding made available by the Wayne Smith of the Smith Family Foundation who wished to reward the other finalists for their dedication to collaboration in the community. The 2015 winner will be announced at the annual Myers, Brettholtz & Companys full-day nonprofit seminar to be held on Wednesday, January 21 at the Holiday Inn Fort Myers Airport-Town Center. Once again, the top winner will receive $25,000 thanks to the support by Myers, Brettholtz & Company, PA, the Southwest Florida Community Foundation, the Cape Coral Community Foundation and the United Way of Lee, Hendry and Glades Counties, and the top two runners up will each receive $2,500 from the Wayne Smith Family Foundation. Each of the 27 entries we received last year were inspiring, said Lori Sampson-Wilson, principal of Myers, Brettholtz. It clearly shows that our regional nonprofits are working together to achieve positive collaborative results. The Bob Janes Triage Center/Low Demand Shelter is a collaboration with the Salvation Army of Lee, Hendry and Glades Counties, the Lee County Board of County Commissioners, local law enforcement, Lee Memorial Health System, SalusCare, the National Alliance on Mental Illness and the United Way. The Triage Center serves primarily as a voluntary pre-arrest diversion program to reduce the number of individuals with mental illness and/or substance use disorders that are arrested and sent to jail for minor offenses. We were so appreciative of this recognition of our efforts that help make a difference in the community, said Maj. Thomas Louden of the Salvation Army. The cash award was put back into the program to help participants with incidental expenses for job readiness such as needed medications, apparel for job interviews and other various items that will help them get back on their feet and become independent. To be eligible for this years award, a collaboration has to: Be based in the five-county Southwest Florida area (Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Hendry and Glades) Involve two or more entities (i.e., nonprofit organizations, businesses and/ or government agencies) Include a lead organization that is a 501(c)3 nonprofit Have a structure that is evidenced by a formal written agreement (i.e., memorandum of understanding, contract or merger agreement) Be able to demonstrate the impact of the collaboration through measurable outcomes Have been in operation for a minimum of 18 months with a formal written agreement in place no later than March 1, 2013.

Deadline for submission is September 30. deaRPharmacistWhat I Did Rightby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Reader: When I graduated from pharmacy school in 1989, I was eager to ease the worlds suffering. At that time, my profession was rated the #1 trusted profession in the country. How could anything I dispense be bad? Maybe Im the sensitive sort, but I got really upset when my patients called the pharmacy to describe their new, uncomfortable side effect. For example, I would fill a prescription for a muscle relaxer like cyclobenzaprine and then get a frantic call from someone who became very dizzy or zoned out. Once, I filled a prescription for sumatriptan and then four hours later, took a call from the patient who said she was feeling mild chest pain and was very weak. The most memorable one was when I dispensed an analgesic and heard from the wife that he had gone to sleep... and had not waken up in six hours. I could tell you more stories, but you get the point. Pharmacists, as a whole, care very much about our patients. It makes us sad to hear that the medication we dispense causes a detrimental side effect for you. Fortunately, side effects dont occur all the time, or with every single person. There are a handful of lucky ones, and I think we all agree that some medicines are essential, and worth the mild side effects. Since I graduated all those years ago, Ive done something right. Ive asked the question, Why? In doing so, Ive learned that when you block a pathway, or derail an enzyme from doing its job, you launch the first domino which creates a cascade of events leading up to a side effect (which could be diagnosed as a new disease you know!) Its not rocket science, its basic biochemistry. Block the HMGCoA enzyme (statin cholesterol drugs) and you block production of natural CoQ10 (which your muscles love). That answers the why question that people have when they take statins and wonder why they have Charley horses or feel weak. When you block the calcium-dependent membrane function in your gut with the drug metformin (used for diabetes), you lower vitamin B12 levels. A deficiency of B12 lis well-documented to cause painful neuropathies. This answers the why question in case you have more numbness, or pins and needles in your hands and feet. Probiotics, calcium and B12 could help if you take metformin. As a pharmacist (code for drug information specialist), I know I did something right. I delved deeper and learned how medications steal the life out of you. I now teach people how to restore health and balance by putting back key nutrients that mitigate drug-induced nutrient depletions (which spark the side effects). I wrote an entire book on this topic, called Drug Muggers. By the way, its not just drugs. Coffee mugs minerals that you need to make thyroid hormone. Wine mugs thiamine which can cause calf muscle tenderness and memory loss. Snag a copy of Drug Muggers, or ask your local pharmacist what vitamins you need to avoid side effects. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition. Suzy Cohen is the author of The 24-Hour Pharmacist and is a registered pharmacist. To contact her, visit www. How FISH Helps Alleviate Senior Hunger Today, growing old in America can mean being hungry and isolated, and often forgotten. And for nearly 9 million seniors across the country, it does. But it doesnt have to be that way. Those who are lucky enough to get a daily home-delivered meal, friendly visit and safety check from a FISH volunteer, are living far more nourished lives more independent, happy and healthy and in their own homes. In contrast, those who arent properly nourished are more likely to end up prematurely in the hospital or assisted living with chronic disease and/ or disability. It doesnt take much to celebrate seniors, and it takes even less to invest in their health and well-being. For just $6 a day on average, or approximately $2,000 a year, FISH can champion an elder in need. The Meals-By-FISH program incorporates delivery of a hot, nutritious meal per day, up to five days per week, including extras for the weekend. Those who qualify may receive meals at reduced or no cost. Often, volunteers who deliver meals spend a few extra moments socializing with meal recipients in an effort to combat loneliness and make new friends. Last year, FISH assisted 25 households through the Meals-By-FISH program, two-thirds of which were subsidized by FISH. Thanks to volunteers and partnerships with CAMEO of Lee County and Baileys General Store, FISH can continue to be champions for seniors in our community. FISH clients must first go through a detailed client intake and provide certain financial documentation to FISH. Each client is evaluated privately, on an individual and per instance basis. There is no guarantee of assistance from FISH. To learn more about FISH programs, contact Christine Swiersz or Jessi Zeigler at 4724775.

The next screening on the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile will be held August 22 from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at McDonalds located at 13741 N. Cleveland Avenue in North Fort Myers. It is estimated that one in every 68 children is diagnosed with some form of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), making it more common than childhood cancer, juvenile diabetes and pediatric AIDS combined. Medical consultants for the project stress that an early diagnosis can make a vast difference for toddlers and their families. They say early intensive behavioral intervention can make an immense difference not just in the development of the child, but in their families as well. The ASD screening is conducted by the Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida. The screenings are administered by an advanced registered nurse practitioner, who has extensive training and experience in typical child development and developmental disorders. A physician referral is not required. To schedule a screening, call 343-6838.

Best advice: Stay out of the situation until things settle. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Tension runs high in both personal and workplace relationships. This can make it difficult to get your message across. Best to wait until you have a more receptive audience. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) This is a good time to take a break from your busy schedule to plan for some well-deserved socializing. You could get news about an important personal matter by the weeks end. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) An offer of help could come just when you seem to need it. But be careful about saying yes to anything that might have conditions attached that could cause problems down the line. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Sometimes a workplace colleague cant be charmed into supporting the Lions position. Thats when its time to shift tactics and overwhelm the doubter with the facts. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) You continue to earn respect for your efforts to help someone close to you stand up to a bully. But be careful that in pushing this matter you dont start to do some bullying yourself. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Dont ask others if they think youre up to a new responsibility. Having faith in your own abilities is the key to dealing with a challenge. P.S.: That private matter needs your attention. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) This is a good time to use that Scorpian creativity to come up with something special that will help get your derailed career plans back on track and headed in the right direction. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) While change is favored, it could be a good idea to carefully weigh the possible fallout as well as the benefits of any moves before you make them. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) The Goat continues to create a stir by following his or her own path. Just be sure you keep your focus straight and avoid any distractions that could cause you to make a misstep. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A colleagues demands seem out of line. But before reacting one way or another, talk things out and see how you might resolve the problem and avoid future misunderstandings. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A personal matter appears to be making more demands on your time than you feel youre ready to give. See if some compromise can be reached before things get too dicey. BORN THIS WEEK: Youre able to communicate feelings better than most people. Have you considered a career in the pulpit or in politics? On Aug. 19, 1812, the U.S. Navy frigate Constitution defeats the British frigate Guerrire in an engagement off the coast of Nova Scotia. The British shot merely bounced off the Constitutions sides, as if the ship were made of iron rather than wood. The bolts fastening the timbers and copper sheathing on Old Ironsides were provided by Paul Revere. On Aug. 23, 1904, Harold D. Weed of Canastota, New York, is issued U.S. Patent No. 768,495 for his Grip-Tread for Pneumatic Tires, a tire chain to be used on automobiles to increase traction on roads slick with mud, snow or ice. On Aug. 20, 1911, a dispatcher in the New York Times office sends the first telegram around the world to determine how fast a commercial message could be sent. After it traveled more than 28,000 miles, relayed by 16 different operators, the reply was received by the same operator 16 1/2 minutes later. On Aug. 21, 1920, Daphne Milne, wife of writer A.A. Milne, gives birth to a son the couple names Christopher Robin Milne. Christopher Robin was immortalized in A.A. Milnes books Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner. On Aug. 18, 1958, Vladimir Nabokovs controversial novel Lolita is published in the U.S. The novel, about a mans obsession with a 12-year-old girl, had been rejected by four publishers before G.P. Putnams Sons accepted it. On Aug. 24, 1969, Company A of the Third Battalion, 196th Light Infantry Brigade refuses the order of its commander, Lt. Eugene Schurtz, Jr., to continue an attack near Da Nang, Vietnam, because they had simply had enough. Schurtz was relieved of his command and transferred. Neither he nor his men were ever disciplined. On Aug. 22, 1992, the second day of a standoff at Randy Weavers Ruby Ridge cabin in Idaho, FBI sharpshooter Lon Horiuchi wounds Weaver and kills his unarmed wife, Vicki, as she holds their baby daughter. In 1997, Horiuchi was charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death, but a federal judge dismissed the charge, citing the alleged immunity of federal officers. It was French philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre who made the following sage observation: Three oclock is always too late or too early for anything you want to do. Those who study such things say that of all teenagers who wear braces, at least 60 percent have matched the rubber bands on their brackets to their outfits. Mary Todd Lincolns half-sister, Emily Todd, was married to Confederate Gen. Benjamin Helm. When her husband died in 1863, Emily crossed Union lines to visit her sister in the White House. Newspapers in the North created a furor over incident, speculating that the generals widow could be a spy. After taking an oath of loyalty to the Union, Emily Helm was granted amnesty. John Lennon appeared on the first cover of Rolling Stone magazine. Do you go to action movies just to see the car chases? Heres a real-life doozy for you: In 2002, after a bank robbery in Wrestedt, Germany, the culprits led lawenforcement officials on a 620-mile chase through several countries. After two days, the criminals were finally apprehended in Rivne, Ukraine. The original Mickey and Minnie Mouse were voiced by Wayne Allwine and Russi Taylor. The human pair also were married in real life. If youre like 37 percent of Americans, you feel a sense of satisfaction when you finish vacuuming. If youre like the rest of us, you just hope the kids wait a few hours before spilling cereal on the carpet again. According to historians, Roman emperor Caligula once declared war on Neptune, the god of the sea. After his soldiers ran into the ocean and stabbed at the water, Caligula declared victory and ordered the men to collect seashells as war trophies.

NOW HERES A TIP Coffee filters make wonderful glass cleaners. They leave behind no streaks and no residual lint. Beautiful umbrella stands dont have to be limited to umbrellas. We keep sports equipment (bats, a lacrosse stick, yoga mat) in ours, and it works just as well. -T.J. in Kansas Stuck zippers can be loosened with graphite powder, or simply by tracing a pencil lead over the zipper. Make your own camping lamp: Strap a headlamp to a full gallon jug of water. It fills the tent with a soft light, and you can still drink the water! Use rubbing alcohol to clean window frames. It evaporates quickly with no residue left behind. If you have a retractable cord on your vacuum, try this trick. Clip a clothespin at the optimum length, and the cord will not retract past that point. So, no more snapping right out of the outlet, which used to happen to me. -P.L. in Tennessee Old socks can be fitted around the head of an old mop or Swiffer base. Spray with cleaner and clean away. When you are done, remove the sock and launder.

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. Don't Harm The Fishby Capt.

Life just threw us a curve ball. Our golden years were supposed to be spent on a cozy bed with regular bathroom breaks. Our family was supposed to be that special breed of human that dotes on beagles. They would delight in watching us sniff and howl as we explore the outdoors. Despite our age, they would refer to us as their kids. Instead, here we are in an animal shelter. We are hoping those beagle folks come for us soon so we can be one happy family. Adoption fees are $25 for pets six years and over. For information about this weeks pets, call 533-7387 (LEE-PETS) or log on to Animal Services website at When calling, refer to the animals ID number. The website updates every hour so you will be able to see if these or any other pets are still available. The shelter is open for adoptions from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The shelter is located at 5600 Banner Drive, Fort Myers, next to the Lee County Sheriffs Office, off Six Mile Cypress Parkway. All adoptions include spay/ neuter surgery, age-appropriate vaccinations, rabies vaccination and county license if three months or older, flea treatment, worming, heartworm test for dogs six months and over, feline AIDS and leukemia test for cats, training DVD, 10-day health guarantee, and a bag of Science Diet pet food. The adoption package is valued at $500. Rocky ID# 364654 Macy ID# 364653 Share your community news with us. Call 395-1213, Fax: 395-2299 or email
