Clerk Of Court Warning About E-Mail ScamsClerk of Court Linda Doggett wishes to make all Lee County residents aware of the most recent spike in fraudulent e-mails by entities impersonating clerks offices across the state. This newest round of scams comes in the form of an e-mail referencing a missed court appearance. Unlike past scams, these e-mails attempt to retrieve personal data, forcefully, by computer virus attached as a .zip file. These malicious attachments contain a Trojan Horse virus that becomes active as soon as the file is unzipped. Recent examples of these scams have been signed by fictitious county clerks. The Clerk of Court would like to remind residents that all court-related communications are sent through normal mail. Jury summons and failure to appear notices are never sent via phone or e-mail. Important tips to remember: The clerks office does not call or e-mail residents to request payment for missing jury duty. The office will also never request payment via any sort of prepaid debit card. The clerks office does not call or e-mail residents to verify information related to jury duty or to notify them that they missed jury duty. Communications are only sent by mail. If a resident misses jury duty, the individual receives a failure to appear notice in the mail from the judge representing their Circuit Court. Arrest warrants are not usually issued for failure to report for jury duty. Please contact the clerks office, if you receive one. Do not open an e-mail attachment from any unfamiliar source, and never provide personal information to an unfamiliar source, either by phone or e-mail. Linda Doggett suggests calling the Sheriffs Office Fraud/Scam line at 2583292 with any suspicious or unsolicited communication.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 29, 20144 Islanders Assume Leadership Roles At Zonta Internationalsubmitted by Dalia JakubauskasSanibel residents and members of the Zonta Club of Sanibel/ Captiva Karen Pati and Linda Robison were recently installed as Zonta District 11 governor and Zonta Area 6 director respectively. These prestigious leadership posts are part of Zonta Internationals regional structure covering clubs in the Southeast United States and areas in Southwest Florida. Zonta has more than 1,200 clubs with 30,000 plus members in 66 countries spread across North and South America, Africa, Europe and Australia. Both Zontians took office in June when Robison officially assumed her duties as Area 6 director and Pati was sworn in as District 11 governor at Zonta Internationals bi-annual conference in Orlando. District 11 is composed of 32 clubs in the Southeast United States, the Bahamas, Puerto Rico and the British Virgin Islands. Area 6 covers six clubs in Southwest Florida, including Sanibel/ Captiva, and stretches from Naples to Sarasota. Zonta International is a global organization of professionals working together to advance the status of women worldwide through service and advocacy. The Zonta International Foundation also raises funds through contributions from its member clubs and individuals to support its global initiatives, which focus on education, health issues and combatting violence against women and girls, including human trafficking. As governor, Pati will serve as link between Zonta International and District 11 and is responsible for its affairs. Robison will act as liaison between Area 6 clubs and District 11, serve on the district board, and will assist Pati as she requests. Both women are accomplished professionals and Zontians for over a decade, who bring numerous skills to their volunteer efforts. Each has served as past presidents of the Zonta Club of Sanibel/ Captiva and founding board members of The Human Trafficking Awareness Project, one of Zontas service partners. Both have also held leadership positions with other charitable organizations including UNICEF, where Robison served as chair at the regional headquarters in Chicago, and The Harry Chapin Food Bank of Southwest Florida, where Pati is a board member. A resident of Sanibel since 1998, Pati is a category manager for Chiquita Brands with a MBA from Indian University Northwest. A resident of Sanibel for 19 years, Robison is a tax attorney who earned her law degree from Boston University School of Law. It is their dedication to fulfilling Zontas mission of improving the lives of women and girls locally and around the world that inspired them to pursue leadership positions, they said. It has been a natural progression for me as Ive assimilated the importance of the Zonta mission and the belief that we can accomplish that mission better as a group than individuals, said. Pati. I continue to strive to be a good servant leader. Robison stressed the importance of new Zonta members serving in leadership positions at the local level. I love Zonta and its mission and having served two terms as president of our local club, she said. I wanted to continue in a leadership role in another venue.

5 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 29, 2014 Norma Gillespie Scholarship Established At BIG ARTSA scholarship for young musicians has been established at BIG ARTS in the name of Norma Gillespie, who recently passed away. The scholarship was initiated by her husband, Mike, and her four children, Michael, Paul, Anne and Kevin. Gillespie, who served on the BIG ARTS Classical Music Committee, had in past years also organized and led special concerts featuring young musicians from high schools in Southwest Florida. The concerts provided a venue for these young people to display their talents and gain recognition before audiences beyond their local area. In recruiting for, organizing and leading these events, Gillespie drew on a lifetime of musical experience. She was an accomplished pianist and cellist, performing chamber music with local groups and as a soloist at St. Isabels Church, the Sanibel Community Church, and with the BIG ARTS Community Chorus, led by Steve Cramer. Gillespie also spent years as a music educator and choral director at schools in the Philadelphia area. She attended the Philadelphia Music Academy and subsequently graduated from Temple University with a degree in music education. The new Norma Gillespie Young Musicians Scholarship at BIG ARTS was established to encourage and nurture young peoples interests in and love of music. Those interested in donating to the scholarship fund should contact BIG ARTS, 900 Dunlop Road, Sanibel, FL 33957, or call 395-0900.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 29, 20148 CECI Kids Play With PlaydoughThe malleable properties of playdough make it fun for investigation and exploration as well as secretly building up strength in all the tiny hand muscles and tendons, making them ready for pencil and scissor control later on. As part of simple, tactile play it can be squashed, squeezed, rolled, flattened, chopped, cut, scored, raked, punctured, poked and shredded. Each one of these different actions aids fine motor development in a different way, not to mention hand-eye coordination and general concentration. And as soon as you add another element to it, the list of benefits and creative play possibilities continues to grow. The Childrens Education 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 9 a.m. to noon, Monday through Friday, for free. Wrap-around care for VPK students is offered as well. The preschool is currently accepting applications for the 2014-15 school year. For more information, stop by the school at 350 Casa Ybel Road or call 472-4538.

CorrectionThe August 8 issue of the Island Sun included an article on page 10 with the headline, Dark Sky Compliant Fixtures Approved. The accompanying graphic was incorrectly labeled as a chart that depicts both compliant and non-complaint fixtures. As correctly stated in the article, the action taken on August 5 by city council was approving a report from Vice Mayor Doug Congress regarding proposed upcoming updates to the current Dark Skies Ordinance. Additionally, council directed staff to proceed with drafting an ordinance consistent with council approved recommendations. After being drafted, the ordinance will be subject to first and second public hearings before city council in the future as well as a hearing before the planning commission prior to adoption.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 29, 201410 INSIDE CITY HALL From page 1Commission Approves Move For FISH According to the planning department staff report, FISH proposes to maintain the existing 1,500 square footage in the front of the building for restaurant use. Their plan is to purchase the building, continue the restaurant use at the front of the building, and move their not-for-profit operations to the rear of the building, said planning director Jimmy Jordan during his presentation. The remaining 3,500 square footage in the rear of the building will be utilized by FISH of Sanibel-Captiva, Inc. as the human services center, the staff report states, in part. This site will include a food pantry (food products will include both dry, frozen and refrigerated items), client counseling with FISH social workers, community referral services, client computer stations and small workshops. The proposed development will also house the administrative offices for the organization. Currently, employees at the FISH Walk-In Center include an executive director, two full-time social workers, one full-time program director and one office/ volunteer manager. Employees currently work Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. During discussions on the application, commissioner Holly Smith asked if additional signage for FISH would be permitted. Jordan confirmed that either a ground-mounted sign near the entrance of the property or a sign affixed to the building would be allowed. Also, a new lease agreement with owners of The Sangria Grill has yet to be completed. The lease would include a prohibition of operating the restaurant during FISHs office hours. John Morse, president of the neighbors helping neighbors organization, confirmed that after-hours workshops for clients of FISH will be held on occasion, but those tend to generate less than 10 participants. Smith asked Morse if FISH were willing to accept the conditions for approval recommended by the planning department staff, and once Morse confirmed it was, Smith made a motion to approve the application. After Tom Krekel seconded the motion, the application was unanimously approved, 4 to 0, with John Talmage and Chris Heidrick both recusing themselves from voting due to having a professional relationship with the nonprofit. In other business, the commission elected Heidrick as its new vice chairman. Following former chairman Michael Valiquettes departure earlier this month, Dr. Phillip Marks took over Valiquettes role as leader of the seven-member panel. According to Vice Mayor Doug Congress, four citizens have submitted their names for consideration of being appointed to the vacated planning commission seat. The city council will vote on the appointment at its next meeting, scheduled for 11 a.m. on Saturday, September 6. Sanibel Sprout Relocating To Baileys Centerby Jeff LysiakDuring Tuesdays planning commission meeting, the owners of The Sanibel Sprout received conditional use approval to relocate their business to an approximately 1,000-square-foot space within the Baileys Shopping Center, which provides the health food store and juice bar with 20 indoor dining seats. The staff report, presented by city planner Benjamin Pople, detailed some of the specifics of The Sanibel Sprouts application, including the revised request for the number of indoor dining seats (originally 24, amended to 20). Currently, the business operates from a space in the Palm Ridge Place Shopping Center, located at 2330 Palm Ridge Road. As with the previous request for The Sanibel Sprouts current location, a great deal of coordination exists for the proposed use and existing uses with respect to shared facilities. Baileys Center has also made recent changes to the sites internal circulation for motor vehicles and interconnectivity to the shared use path, the staff report reads, in part. The Sanibel Sprout has operated in conformance with the Sanibel Plan in its current location for the past two years. The nature of the proposed Sanibel Sprout use is not expected to have an adverse effect on existing or future uses on or adjacent to the site. According to Pople, the planning department recommended approving the application, subject to 13 conditions. Among those conditions: Outdoor seats are not authorized as part of this approval, and such seating shall require separate permit approval. The juice bar use shall be operated as part of The Sanibel Sprout health food store and shall not operate as a separate commercial use. The juice bar shall not be associated with a formula brand or franchise. No merchandise is permitted to be displayed or stored outside the commercial unit. During the public hearing, commissioner Chuck Ketteman questioned the condition of using brand name juices or products in the preparation of freshlymade beverages at the businesses juice bar. Planning department director Jimmy Jordan confirmed that such usage would be allowed. Richard Johnson, speaking on behalf of the Baileys Center, added that The Sanibel Sprout relocating into the shopping plaza continues down the path towards the vision of the Baileys Center. Commission chair Dr. Phillip Marks asked business owner Nikki Rood if she was comfortable with each of the 13 conditions set forth by the planning department. Rood nodded in agreement. We are very excited to be moving to Baileys, she said, adding that The Sanibel Sprout was a haven for both island residents and visitors. We look forward to building this and want you all to come in and taste our food. Ketteman made a motion to approve the application, which was seconded by John Talmage and unanimously approved, 6 to 0. Rood added that she hopes to be able to complete the relocation before the end of September or by early October, adding that business hours are also expected to expand to 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Independently Owned And OperatedUSPS 18: Bulk Rate permit paid for at Sanibel, Florida, 33957.

11 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 29, 2014 ARLENE (LEE) BARNES BOGANIt is with sincere sadness that we share the news of the loss of one of our most beloved colleagues and friends, Arlene (Lee) Barnes Bogan. Lee passed away on Wednesday, July 23 after recently being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. She was 86 years old. Our Sanibel Island family, Hilton Grand Vacations team, and countless Owners and friends are mourning the loss of a deeply respected colleague and an extraordinary woman. Lee celebrated her 30th Anniversary with HGV earlier this year, having joined the team back in March of 1984. During her three decades of service, she produced some remarkable results and created unforgettable connections and lasting memories. Further to the fact that Lee consistently produced more than $1 million in sales year on year, she was a true inspiration to the entire Sales team throughout Southwest Florida. At every function and team event, rookies and veterans alike would gather around Lee as she was happy to share her sage wisdom and tips for success. Lee was a legend on the Southwest Florida Coast, particularly renowned and respected for her timeshare sales savvy and her ability to maintain price integrity at the exclusive Sanibel Cottages and Hurricane House resorts. When people came to her with low offers, she would quickly direct them down the road where they may entertain the offers, but would never let her weeks be sold at bargain prices. In addition to being a fierce saleswoman, Lee was also a dynamite socialite, known to forge great connections with colleagues and Owners alike. And what a site she was behind the wheel of her trademark Cadillac convertible. Driving over Sanibel Bridge, top down, and the only thing visible was her bright little eyes peering out above the dash. You couldnt help but to smile... and to adore her. Lee loved her Sanibel Island. Even though she lived and worked there every day, Lee also owned three weeks of timeshare on the island, which she used every year without fail. She was an avid golfer and played every Thursday at The Dunes on Sanibel. She enjoyed wave running rides with her boyfriend, and accredited her longevity to indulging in a glass of Grey Goose on the rocks every evening. An inspiration, a legend, a site to behold. Though losing her is so difficult, this is also a time to remember Lee and the many wonderful memories we all shared with her. She was truly beloved and we will miss her dearly. May she rest in peace. OBITUARY Churches/ TemplesANNUNCIATION GREEK ORTHODOX CHURCH: 8210 Cypress Lake Drive, Fort Myers Rev.

15 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 29, 2014 CROW Case Of The Week: American Crow At CROWby Patricia MolloyFound in every corner of the world except Antarctica, crows are members of the Corvidae family and are related to magpies, ravens and blue jays. Due in part to their jet-black feathers, crows have long been associated with death in literature and folklore; thats the likely reason that a group of crows is known as a murder. A murder of crows often consists of thousands of birds; its a great means by which to protect themselves against attacks from great horned owls, red-tailed hawks and raccoons. Possessing approximately 250 distinct calls, crows are very protective of the individuals in their group, whether or not they are related. In addition to being extremely social and caring animals, wildlife biologists at the University of Washington have discovered that they may be the most intelligent creatures on the planet. Two weeks ago, an American crow (Corvus brachyrhynchos) patient #2146 was brought to the clinic in grave condition. He had been electrocuted and a lot of his feathers were singed, began Dr. Kristen Dub, DVM. The patient was rushed to the operating room where it was given an anesthetic gas through a small mask. The surgical team was led by Dr. Heather Barron, hospital director. Hes had multiple surgeries. We had to partially amputate most of his toes and surgically remove feathers to stimulate growth, Dr. Kristen continued. Having sustained damage to its primary, secondary and tail feathers, the surgical removal of the most damaged ones will trick the crows body into molting, thereby replacing the essential feathers. The clinics staff will continue to carefully monitor the American crow over the coming weeks to see if its feathers grow back normally. Hes doing pretty well, said Dr. Kristen. And as is the case with all patients at CROW, if (he) continues to make progress, we will continue treatment. CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Inc.) is a non-profit wildlife hospital providing veterinary care for native and migratory wildlife from our local area. The hospital accepts patients seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mail donations to PO Box 150, Sanibel, FL 33957. Call 472-3644 or visit: www.crowclinic. org. Despite having the tips of most of its toes amputated, this American crow, patient #2146, is able to perch while he recovers from multiple surgeries at the Sanibel wildlife clinic 239.472.2328 www.sanibelthriller.comReservations are required Also Available for Private Charters Departing from Sanibel Marina 634 N.

Snook Season Opens September 1by Capt. Matt MitchellAs all of you inshore anglers know, September 1 marks the opening of snook season in Southwest Florida. After experiencing some of the better catch and release closed season snook action this last few months that we have had in years, expectations for landing that first slot sized fish of the season are high and for good reason. With our local population of snook noticeably on the upswing, what is happily surprising to me is how many of the snook we have been catching and releasing all summer are over the 33-inch slot. These oversize snook most certainly have lived through what was a devastating severe cold water kill of 2010. Snook numbers have rebounded since 2010 and the FWC moratorium closing the harvest of snook in the Gulf of Mexico for almost four years. This closure was a great thing for our snook fishery in general and was no doubt an important factor why we currently have such good stock of all sizes of snook for anglers to enjoy. This premier gamefish, for good reason, is Floridas most regulated and well protected fish. With the opening day of snook season this year falling on Labor Day Monday, things on the water will be busy, to say the least. The morning strong outgoing tide should make for a good bite in and around all the passes. September is the time that snook are just winding down, if not finished with their annual spawning. These fish will still be found in good numbers both in the passes and on the beaches until generally the end of September when they start making their way to the back country. With an opening day morning snook charter booked, my plan is to get out early and get back in before it just gets too crazy busy out on the water. If you can wait until after the holiday weekend to fish for snook, things on the water will really quiet down and the passes will be much less congested. Fishing out on the beaches is another good option and will be a whole lot more peaceful on Monday than the passes will be. For anglers just looking to bend a rod and not too concerned about catching that first keeper snook of the season, huge schools of fry size bait in the middle to northern end of the sound have been the place to do this. The eastern side of the sound, starting from just north of Chino Island to Captiva Rocks, has been loaded up with these bait schools and lots of feeding frenzy fish. Soft plastic jigs fished while running and gunning on breaking fish caught a wide variety of species including trout, mangrove snapper, ladyfish, jacks and mackerel. This action was non-stop, just find the birds and the bait. If youre out along the beaches, watch for these same bait schools that look like dark clouds under the clear water for fast paced action too. Not only are there Mackerel and jacks feeding on this little bait but this can be some of the best tarpon fishing of the year when conditions are right. Take advantage when we get a slick calm morning and run the beach. Watch for the tarpon to be rolling andcrashing on the Spanish mackerel and ladyfish as they feed on the huge cloud like schools of fry bait. Feeding birds and mackerel are the tell tale sign. For me, this is some of the most enjoyable tarpon fishing of the year as its such a visual thing and, best of all, there are very few boats harassing these fish. 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 29, 201418 Shell Of The WeekThe Mahogany Date Musselby Jos H. Leal, PhD, The BaileyMatthews National Shell Museum Science Director & CuratorThe mahogany date mussel, Lithophaga bisulcata (dOrbigny, 1853) is a rock-boring species found in calcium carbonate substrates such as live or dead coral and other mollusk shells. The date mussel bores into the soft rock using special calcium carbonatedissolving enzymes that are secreted from the anterior (blunt) end of the animal. The species typically has an elongate, thinwalled, cylindrical shell, which is tapered at its posterior end. A line divides the surface of each valve diagonally. The posterior half of the shell is encrusted with a relatively soft, porous calcium carbonate deposit. The illustration shows a date mussel that was boring into the top valve of a jewel box collected on Sanibel.

19 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 29, 2014 Report Catches And Sightings Of Invasive Lion Fish If you see or catch a lionfish, report it. Thats what many lionfish hunters have been doing, thanks to the new Report Florida Lionfish app released to the public May 28. The app has been downloaded by more than 2,500 people. The first 250 to successfully report a lionfish catch or sighting received an interactive Lionfish Control Team T-shirt. The logo on the shirts is designed to come to life on your smartphone. In addition to the app, data can also be submitted online at MyFWC.com/ Lionfish by clicking on Report Lionfish. Lionfish are an invasive species that negatively impact Floridas reefs and wildlife. The Report Florida Lionfish app includes educational information on lionfish and safe handling guidelines, as well as an easy-to-use data-reporting form so divers and anglers can share with the FWC information about their sighting or harvest. App users also can take and share a photo of their catch. These photos may be used in future publications or social media efforts. The FWC will use the data to help identify sites where targeted lionfish removal might be most beneficial. All data will be available to the public and shared with other groups and agencies collecting this kind of information. Several users have submitted ideas on how to improve the app, and the FWC is looking into implementing those changes, including allowing users to submit using a photograph that is already on their smart device and adding fields for smallest and largest catch. Learn more about the new app, T-shirt and interactive logo by watching a video online. T-shirts will also be given out at various lionfish-related events, such as derbies across the state.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 29, 201420 DDWS Teacher Grants Deadline ApproachesThe Ding Darling Wildlife SocietyFriends of the Refuge (DDWS), with JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, announced its 8th annual donation of teacher grants. This year, the DDWS board of directors voted to double the total available grant funds from $5,000 to $10,000 and to expand eligibility beyond Lee County to Charlotte, Collier, Glades and Hendry counties for conservation educationrelated projects. Teachers in the five-county area may apply for grants up to $1,000 to purchase teaching aids, books and classroom materials; fund new classroom science projects; take field trips; or conduct work projects in the community. All schools are invited to submit environmental educationor science-related unit proposals by October 31. The approved proposals will be awarded in November for projects to be completed by May 2015. The education committee is very pleased that the board has generously increased the reach of our teach grants, said Doris Hardy, DDWS Environmental Education Committee chair. With environmental education funding being cut throughout the school district, teachers and students are grateful to receive our grants to fund special projects. Its an important part of the societys mission to educate and make future conservation stewards out of todays youth pool. In the past seven years, the society has granted more than $39,000 to local schools for environmental projects. The teacher grants are funded by DDWS monies received from the Ding Darling Foundation earmarked specifically for education. For further information and an application, visit www.dingdarlingsociety.org/ grants; or contact Gary Ogden at 4721100 ext. 233 or Hardy at hardydd@ comcast.net. National Life Jacket Design ContestAre you an armchair inventor with a better way to keep boaters, sailors and anglers afloat? The BoatUS Foundation, along with the Personal Floatation Device Manufacturers Association (PFDMA) and the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA), have teamed up to seek out the newest technologies and design ideas with the Innovation in Life Jacket Design Competition which kicks off today. We believe there are some creative folks out there that can help us rethink a 100-year-old design with fresh, out-ofthe-box ideas, said BoatUS Foundation President Chris Edmonston. A $10,000 cash award goes to the winning designer and inventors have until April 15, 2015 to submit their idea to www.BoatUS.org/design. Waterway users are always looking for more comfortable life jackets, added Edmonston. While current models of life jackets save lives every day, many are still bulky and uncomfortable, leaving boaters reluctant to wear them. This competition hopes to challenge that mindset. Entries that embrace new technologies and non-traditional thinking are being encouraged from individuals or groups, such as high school science clubs, collegiate design programs or even boat and fishing clubs. There are no rules regarding types of materials to be used or whether the design meets any current U.S. standards. Entries can be as simple as handdrawn theoretical designs to working prototypes. The entries will be judged based on four criteria: wearability, reliability, cost and innovation. Wearability relates to the level of comfort. Reliability will take into account the chances for potential failure, while cost will look at the affordability of the design. Innovation will take into account originality or the utilization of new technologies. Additionally, the BoatUS Foundation will post entries on their website and Facebook page for public voting. The winner will be announced at the September 2015 International Boat Builders Exhibition and Conference in Louisville, Kentucky and additional cash prizes are offered for second and third place.

23 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 29, 2014 Plant SmartPricklypearby Gerri ReavesPricklypear (Opuntia humifusa) is the best known and most widespread cactus native to Florida. Prostrate and sprawling, it usually reaches one to three feet in height. This hardy plant grows in dry sandy soil and is found on beaches and in woods, pinelands, pastures, prairies and scrub. It is highly drought-tolerant, salt-tolerant and wildlife friendly. Just make sure to plant it where no one needs to tread. The oval fleshy pads have tufts of barbed hair-like bristles, or glochids. The flat connecting pads are about two to four inches long. People who consider this plant a scourge because of its thorns might call it by another common name, devils-tongue. In spring to early summer, cup-shaped yellow flowers of about three to four inches across appear on the outer pads. It might bloom all year in South Florida. Many thin over-lapping petals surround a wide yellow center with many stamens. Although a cactus might bloom for weeks, a single flower lasts only one day. The edible egg-shaped fruit is purple-red when ripe and contains many seeds. The spines must be carefully removed before eating. Besides serving as a good no trespassing sign, pricklypear works well as a border or accent plant or in a rock garden. Give it plenty of sun and sandy well-drained soil. It suffers if over-watered. It benefits wildlife by providing safe cover for small animals and food for gopher tortoises, quail, wild turkey, doves, thrashers, woodpeckers, fox, squirrel, rabbit and white-tailed deer. Native peoples in the Americas have used the stems, pads, fruit and seeds for food and various parts of it medicinally. A red dye can be produced from an insect that thrives on the cactus. Even the spines have been used as sewing needles. Propagate pricklypear with seeds or by burying the end of a pad in sandy soil in full sun. Floridas native pricklypear species are threatened by a non-native moth first spotted in the Keys in 1989. Sources: Wild Plants for Survival in South Florida by Julia F.

The family-owned business established itself as an integral part of the community. When the Nave family decided it was time to retire, they started the search for new ownership and found it in two local businessmen, Mitch Pezzi and Joel Goodman. Pezzi and Goodman have renamed the company Sanibel Plumbing Company. Owning a business which provides much needed services to our neighbors and friends on Sanibel and Captiva is exactly what we were looking for, said Pezzi. He and his wife have owned a home on Sanibel for eight years. Being a part of the business community on Sanibel is a real honor and privilege and we want to take a wonderful 67-year-old company and move it in to the next generation. Goodman is an island resident, real estate agent and architect, and has been a member of the Sanibel community since 2005. Goodman said, We love the islands of Sanibel and Captiva, and had always dreamed of a day when we could live here full-time. Our family is living that dream now. So, when the opportunity to purchase a company as iconic to Sanibel as Nave Plumbing, I thought it would be an opportunity for me to be part of a legacy business that serves the island community. Sanibel Plumbing Company is located off Periwinkle Way, in Sanibel Square, where it will also be opening a new kitchen and bath showroom later this year. Sanibel Plumbing Company van

31 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 29, 2014 Discussion At Shell PointThe Academy of Lifelong Learning at Shell Point welcomes Professor Adrian Kerr, who will present The Glorious History and Culture of Thailand and Phuket on Tuesday, September 9 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. in the Grand Cypress Room of The Woodlands at Shell Point Retirement Community. Kerr will trace the origins of the Thai people, including a look at the founding of the early empires and capitals, the rise of the Chakri Dynasty, and how Thailand avoided the colonialism that overtook the rest of Southeast Asia. He will review the political turmoil that has befallen the country recently and the role of the highly respected king in maintaining stability for now. The course will close with a review of the fascinating history and colorful highlights of Phuket Island and how it has recovered after the devastating tsunami of 2004. Tickets for the class are $10. Seating is limited and reservations are required. Call 489-8472. The Academy of Lifelong Learning at Shell Point is an educational initiative for the residents of the retirement community. The academy provides approximately 80 classes each semester that encompass a well-rounded curriculum of educational opportunities for senior adults. Shell Point Retirement Community is located in Fort Myers just off Summerlin Road and McGregor Boulevard, two miles before the Sanibel Causeway. Professor Adrian Kerr Poets Corner selected by Tanya HochschildCanoeing on Tarpon Bayby Georgianna OrsiniNo land to walk at all, just trunks with tentacles that could reach hell, if that was bottom. Rounded knobs on a slightly sunken log betray with symmetry the periscopic eyes of an alligator, cued to drown a glas-stemmed heron set to fish at the next river bend. Water breaks into separate slides, long enough to film a second sky, trees, legs. A splash posts some boundary crossed; even a word tips over a companionable quiet, shrieking, as water crumples underneath the thrashing wings. Almost too weighed down to fly, the bird discards its mirrored twin. Violated by a red canoe with its two paddlers who trespass one another, even resting. Georgianna Orsini has lived in Tuscany, New York, Sanibel and now lies in North Carolina. She has illustrated her book, An Imperfect Lover, from which this poem is taken. We invite submissions from local poets. Anyone interested may submit their work via email to tutsie@ comcast.net. Each week, individual work will be showcased.

Sanibel Moorings Condominiums rank on Expedias 2014 Insiders Select List Waterfront view of the Sanibel Moorings Condominiums Book ReviewSanibel Treasuresby Di SaggauA beautiful coffee table book geared especial for people who love and feel the experience of Sanibel is now available. Sanibel Treasures by Angelika Geerlof contains prose poetry and photographs that are a tribute to this beautiful island paradise. Geerloff wrote the poetry and took the pictures and calls the book a very personal project, a true labor of love. In her introduction, she writes, How many ways can you describe and depict the same beautiful place with images that capture moments in time, and with different, descriptive, effervescent prose, filled with passion and vibrant emotion? Geerloffs book captures the mood of the island and allows the reader to relive their experience on Sanibel. She told me the book is for everyone who loves and feels the experience of Sanibel Island the way that she does. It is my haven, my sanctuary, and each and every day, I consider it a blessing to live and wake up in this unscathed paradise. She has captured in words and images exactly what people feel whether they live here or are vacationing here. She said, Ive had people get moved enough to cry in my arms a very emotional experience. The photos are exceptional and perfectly capture images of Sanibel. Her poetry is lovely. Here are a few phrases to give you an example of what to expect: As the sun peeks over the horizon, a new day is born. The sea air cools my face, a soft breeze tousles my hair. I see the sandpipers scurry, pelicans dive, a scavenger gull on his backside, and as my toes forge forward my footprints leave a trail. The flora and fauna of the island are captured in breathtaking color. This is a book you will share with others for years to come. Sanibel Treasures is available at numerous locations including Paradise of Sanibel, Suncatchers Dream, Baileys General Store, CVS, Jerrys, MacIntosh Books, Sanibel Island Book Shop and also on her website, www.moodscapeslic. com.

35 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 29, 2014 A client of mine, Sarah, often complained about how much money she had to lend (give?) her son. Its one thing after another, she would say. He lost his job and cant make his mortgage payment. Then he got divorced. Then his car broke down. With each successive tragedy, Sarah stepped in and wrote a check. One after the other. Year after year. Sarah had the money. It didnt really affect her lifestyle to continue making the gifts. She called them loans, and would often have me write out a promissory note including a stated interest rate at the lowest applicable federal rate that the IRS allows. Even if the borrower doesnt pay the interest, in related-party loan transactions the IRS expects the lender to impute interest on her tax return. If the lender doesnt impute the interest then theres a chance that the IRS reclassifies the loan as a gift resulting in the use of the lenders gift/estate tax exemption. So over the years, Sarah made loan after loan, bailing her son out from one financial disaster after another. Then she died. In her will, the loans/gifts that she made were to be treated as counting against her sons share. There were four other children, so the estate was to be divided into five shares. The other children werent so understanding of their brothers situation. When they computed the outstanding balance of the loans along with the unpaid interest compounded over the years, and applied that against his one-fifth interest of the estate, he didnt inherit much. So there he was. Nearly 60 years of age. Jobless. No savings to speak of, and very little inheritance coming his way. I therefore ask this question: Did Sarah help him out over the years or did she enable him to continue to make poor choices? Its difficult for a parent to not help a child. Im a father of three daughters, and I hope that I never find myself in Sarahs predicament. When we see our children suffering, we want to do something to help. If its within our means, why not write the check? Seeing what I see from behind my desk, I would suggest that sometimes writing that check only makes the situation worse. And it starts at a place well before our children become adults. When daughter calls from high school and asks us to bring the essay to her that she forgot from home should we do it or allow her to suffer the consequences of not turning in her assignment on time? When son wants to quit the recreational basketball team because he discovers practices are hard and he isnt having as much fun as hed hope, do we make him keep his commitment to his team or allow him to find something he considers to be better? Where should the parent step in to buffer his child from lifes disappointments, and where should the parent step away and let the child experience the consequences of his or her choices? Im not smart enough to tell you the answer to those questions. I suppose that it depends largely on the facts and circumstances of each individual situation. A kid who otherwise is an exemplary soul but who finds herself in a tough situation might and probably should be treated differently than the serial offender. But I do know this.

Sanibel Captiva Trust CompanySelecting A Personal Representativeby Robin L. Cook, Executive Vice President of The Sanibel Captiva Trust CompanyThe terms personal representative and executor are interchangeable when referring to the management, administration and disbursement of estate assets. The term personal representative (or PR) is commonly used today to replace the gender-specific terms executor (male) or executrix (female). Personal representative duties include gathering and valuing all probated property, contacting named beneficiaries, giving adequate public notice to creditors, and paying all valid claims. Before final disbursement of estate property, the personal representative must file final tax returns and pay any federal and state income and estate taxes. While estate assets are under the personal representatives control, he or she is legally responsible for any losses and can be held personally liable by the court. Often, family members or close friends seem to be the logical choice as your personal representative because you might assume that they will perform their duties with the best interests of the family in mind and serve without compensation. You need to consider more than a caring personality and a good heart when naming a personal representative. Financial skills and the ability to make unbiased decisions are also essential, and individual personal representatives often find they need to hire professionals to help, which can eliminate any planned cost savings. To qualify to serve as a personal representative in Florida, an individual must be either a Florida resident or, regardless of residence, a spouse, sibling, parent, child or other close relative of the decedent. An individual who is not a Florida resident and who is not closely related to the decedent cannot serve as a PR. Sometimes a trust agreement displaces the will as the primary legal instrument that communicates the decedents wishes for disposition of property at death. To avoid the potential expense and delays of probate, people establish revocable living trusts to hold title to their property. Trusts can also benefit families by providing a successor trustee that can manage financial affairs during incapacity. Trusts can even be a tool to address special needs and protect assets from creditors, undue influence and spendthrift concerns. At death, the trust becomes a testamentary trust, and the successor trustee named in the original revocable trust is responsible for management of the assets as specified in the trust agreement. Trust companies are equipped to perform the required tasks of trust or estate administration that individuals can find so daunting. They are experienced in investing, and when dealing with the beneficiaries they are not distracted by emotional ties and can act impartially. They can serve as co-trustee with a family member to ensure that all duties are handled properly. Trust companies also offer perpetual service, which means there will be continuous estate administration after the death or incapacity of an individual. The selection of a personal representative or trustee is a vital part of your estate planning. While no two plans are alike, and the considerations and complexities will vary, you can make your plan work best by ensuring that your personal representative or trustee has integrity, experience, sound judgment and your absolute trust. Insurance Tip The Basics About Excess Flood Coverageby Angela Larson RoehlExcess flood coverage provides additional flood coverage over the standard flood insurance policy, which provides the maximum limits of $250,000 for residential building, $100,000 for residential contents, $500,000 for commercial building and $500,000 for business personal property. Many of you have homes and businesses that are valued for more than the maximum allowed limits under the National Flood Insurance Program, so you may want to consider having an excess flood policy in order to provide flood coverage for the value of your home/business in case of a total loss. Land value should not be included when determining the dwelling coverage limit. There is no deductible under the excess flood policy, as your standard flood policy must be exhausted before the excess flood policy would respond to a flood claim. The excess flood policy coverage mimics the National Flood Insurance Policy coverage. Keep in mind that the homeowner/ business owners policy does not insure for the risk of flood and a separate flood policy is needed in order to respond to a flood loss.

Yes, baseball, specifically the Jackie Robinson West team of 12and 13-year-olds, brought pride and smiles throughout America by winning the United States Little League World Series Championship. Although they lost the international final to South Korea, these spirited, poised and talented youngsters showed the world they are true champions by playing the game the way it should be played. They were the first all-black team to win the U.S. title in the 67-year history of the Little League World Series. And their success could have a far-reaching effect on the future of baseball. Baseball has seen a sharp decline in interest and participation by black youth, particularly in the inner cities. Major League Baseball has attempted to rectify this issue through a number of programs. None, however, could have as positive an effect as this years Little World Series. Another predominately all-black team from Philadelphia, led by the precocious Mone Davis, the 13-year-old with a 70-mile-an-hour fastball, reached the Little League semi-finals when she tossed a complete-game, two-hit shutout against an all-boys team from Nashville. The multi-talented Mone graced the cover of Sports Illustrated last week, another first for a Little League player. An estimated 5.5 million viewers tuned in ESPN last Wednesday to see Las Vegas beat her team, shattering an all-time record for Little League World Series viewing. A day later, nearly four million watched Jackie Robinson West beat the Pennsylvania team in the double-elimination tournament. By comparison, neither ESPN nor Fox have generated these types of ratings for a Major League baseball game this season. Is there any wonder that ESPN signed a $60 million eight-year extension to televise the Little League World Series?continued on page 50

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 29, 201440 School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My high school kids seem so bored by their work at school and complain all the time. All I hear is, I wont ever use anything I am learning in this class, but I have to take it to graduate. I think if they would just get into it a little bit they might like what they are studying. Is there someway I can help them to think about their work so its more interesting to them? Julian F., Fort Myers, Florida Julian, You are not the only parent who has heard this lament. Teachers hear this too. Course content does not always seem relevant to students. Somehow the content of the course material has to be made relevant. When information becomes meaningful, students are able to link it to other experiences and knowledge and then this new information will be retained at a much deeper level that if they just learned it for the test. Often times parents and teachers point out the relevance of something but its not relevant to the student only to the teacher or parent. So the first step is to think about why the information is relevant to your children. Dr. Tyler Griffin, a professor at Brigham Young University, says that a way to think about this is to identify the problems the kids are facing and questions they have outside of school that this material can help them resolve. Use your childrens questions, issues and concerns to make their schoolwork relevant to them. Incorporate any realworld scenarios into conversation and mention how it reminds you of what they are studying. Maybe a conversation will ensue and that link to the material will be made and retained at a much deeper level. Remember that relevance is relative. Just because something is meaningful and interesting to you, it may not be for your kids. Much of the responsibility to present course content as relevant belongs to the teacher but the teacher cannot do it alone. There needs to be cooperation from the student and parents to make learning occur. The following quote from a recent Harvard Family Research Project sums up these relationships very nicely and makes a great deal of sense: Student homework creates opportunities for important interactions among schools, families, students, and other adults who help care for children. Welldesigned homework helps students learn; it also offers parents opportunities to see what students are learning, talk with children about their learning, and interact with teachers and other school-community members about ways to support student learning.

She is also a nationally certified school psychologist and consultant for School Consultation Services, a private educational consulting company.

FGCU Receives Gold Rating For SustainabilityFlorida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) has received a STARS Gold rating in recognition of its sustainability achievements from the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE). STARS, the Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System, measures and encourages sustainability in all aspects of higher education. The program takes into account environmental, social and economic factors that contribute to long-term resiliency and evaluates the university in four categories: operations, academics, engagement, and planning and administration. Ratings are based on quantitative values, such as the percentage of energy produced from renewable sources, as well as qualitative indicators including healthy community partnerships, participation in public policy and student organizations focused on sustainability. Developed by and for the higher education community, the STARS scorecard provides a framework for internal benchmarking as well as comparisons with peer institutions. STARS helps FGCU set and meet sustainability goals, said Katie Leone, FGCUs sustainability coordinator. It is a collaborative platform through which we learn from other institutions and are acknowledged for leadership. FGCU has been a dedicated AASHE member since 2006, when it was one of only 50 institutions that participated in the STARS pilot. The university earned a Silver rating in 2011 and is now the first STARS 2.0 Gold-rated institution in the state of Florida. The recognition affirms FGCUs commitment to pursuing and maintaining best practices in sustainability, according to President Wilson G. Bradshaw. Since first opening our doors to students in 1997, Florida Gulf Coast University has been recognized as a leader for incorporating sustainability into our curriculum, student engagement opportunities, and campus operations, said Bradshaw.The STARS Gold rating is an important affirmation of the longstanding commitment and actions by our students, faculty and staff, and we are pleased to be honored by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education.The university scored well in all four categories and particularly excelled in academics, where it received 54 of 58 possible points. continued on page 44 9100 College Pointe Ct., Fort Myers, FL 33919 www.sbshlaw.com | 239-334-1141In which state should you base your estate plan?

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 29, 201442 Superior InteriorsWhere To Start When Redecoratingby Jeanie TinchSince decorating mistakes can be very costly and time consuming, I always urge my clients to do their homework before undertaking any redecorating project. What kind of homework? You might consider starting by collecting brochures and pictures of various design products and styles that you particularly enjoy. Once you start becoming aware of colors, designs and various products available to make your design dreams a beautiful reality, youll find your decision making is much easier. Next, take a personal inventory of your likes and your dislikes. I find that most of my clients have a much easier time knowing what they dont like. Whatever the case may be with your preference, your decorator will benefit from this knowledge. And, of course, working with a professional is definitely the right way to go. With custom decorating, most designers and product manufacturers stand behind their products. Remember, if you take your own measurements and they are incorrect, your purchase cannot be returned. Nothing is more disheartening than finding that beautiful sofa you just had delivered is totally overwhelming your room, and not as comfortable as you had hoped it would be. Be sure to weigh all your options, take your time, do your homework and, most importantly, call a professional. Jeanie Tinch is an interior designer on Sanibel/Captiva Islands. She can be reached at email@example.com. Local Realtors Attend Floridas Event Of The YearLocal realtors from the Sanibel & Captiva Islands Association of Realtors attended the Florida Realtors 98th annual Conference & Trade Expo held August 13 to 17 at Rosen Shingle Creek Resort in Orlando.

CROW, Bank Continue PartnershipThe Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife announced that Edison National Bank/Bank of the Islands will continue to be the presenting sponsor again this year for CROWs 33rd annual Taste of the Islands.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 29, 201446 LMHS Making Health Care More ConvenientLee Memorial Health System has made it easier for patients to access their inpatient records by adding them to the MyChart App and website. Lee Memorial Health System is proud to offer this technology to help patients better manage their health, and to ensure the most efficient and coordinated care. The health system has also gone digital with its prescribing practices. Medications are now conveniently e-prescribed directly to pharmacies upon discharge. Epic and the MyChart component, as well as other electronic health records (EHR), are the new standard in health care across the country. By utilizing Epic and MyChart, Lee Memorial Health System is strengthening its partnership with patients. Providing patients access to their patient record improves patient engagement and compliance with their prescribed plan of care, said Leah Lynch, M.D., internal medicine physician and Lee Physician Groups medical director of informatics. Compliant patients usually respond better to treatment, and ultimately, recover quicker. Through MyChart, patients can access parts of their Epic patient record anytime from their home computer or smart phone. Access to important medical information is further expanded now that we have also linked hospital inpatient information to the records. Adult patients who have been patients in one of Lee Memorial Health Systems hospitals can get results from their lab work and X-ray reports, as well as important discharge information, including their medication list, when they are ready to leave the hospital. When a patient is discharged from any Lee Memorial Health System hospital, they receive an access code so they can look up any information they may need as they transition back home, explained Lynch. MyChart helps patients take more ownership of their health because they can stay on top of tests, prescriptions and medical appointments for themselves and their family members. It also helps keep everyone patient, caregiver, physician and specialists on the same page because we are dealing with one single record. To get started with MyChart, activation codes can be provided, in person, by any participating Lee Physician Group, Lee Convenient Care or Florida Neurology Group provider. To learn more about MyChart, MyChart Mobile App or to activate your code, visit www.LeeMemorial. org/MyChart. Eden Energy MedicineEEM First Aid Be Headache Free In One Minuteby Karen L. Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAML (03-12)We all get headaches from time to time, so learn this ancient technique, based on using points from traditional Chinese medicine, located at the back of your skull and free the pain of the headache. Plus, get the added bonus of a buzz as you bring fresh energy to the brain and head. On top of these benefits, it only takes one minute to achieve this relief. Give it a try you have nothing to lose but the headache. 1. Place both middle fingers on either side of the vertebrae at the base of the skull where the skull attaches to the neck. From the middle of the neck, move your fingers out over the large tendon and you will feel small indents on both sides of the neck that are tender. Rub these points with pressure that takes you to your edge. Now move out from the center along the ridge of the skull, continuing with firm circling motion. 2. Place all fingers together with the index fingers positioned at the base of the neck right above the shoulders, with each hand on either side of the vertebrae. With pressure, circle the area and pull your fingers from the center of the neck to the outside edge of the neck. 3. Move your fingers up another several inches and repeat, pulling from the center of the neck to the outside edge. Continue moving up the neck until you reach the bottom of the skull. Congratulate yourself on a job well done now you can go dance with your significant other, or the dog. Have fun with your energy. Next weeks topic is EEM First Aid Anger Relief with Earlobe Pull. If you have a question, email Karen Semmelman at SemmEnergyCenter@ gmail.com. Learn more at www.semmelmanenergy.com.

I have Hashimotos and dont do well on Armour. Can you tell me what is best for me? JC, Chicago, Illinois As a pharmacist, I know about all the medications for thyroid disease, but as an individual, I insist you ask your practitioner whats best for you. Ive learned that people with Hashimotos have a peculiar sensitivity (at times) to porcine derived medications known Natural Dessicated Thyroid, or NDT. Your Armour medication is in the NDT class. NDT drugs are popular prescription medications that contain a combination of T4 and T3 that is porcine (pig) derived, then purified. First the advantages of NDT drugs: 1. NDT drugs provide your body with a good match to your own human thyroid hormone, despite being derived from pig glands. 2. NDT drugs have been around for a long time, and have a relatively safe track record. 3. The price is very affordable for a month supply. Here are a few disadvantages of NDT drugs: 1. Some people develop an allergy to it, or they dont want an animal-derived product. 2. This is a biggie for people with Hashimotos... your immune system may mistake the added thyroid glandular you are getting from the drug and make more antibodies to your thyroid. For some of you, your immune cells cannot distinguish between pork-derived thyroid gland and your own thyroid gland, so the NDT drugs trigger your immune system. We are talking about auto-immune thyroid disease, not regular hypothyroidism. You would know because your TPO (thyroid peroxidase) TG (thyroglobulin) antibodies would increase, and symptoms would flare. This reaction does not happen to everyone but if you do react, then one easy alternative would be to switch to a synthetic drug, such as levothyroxine. This is a synthetic T4 drug that matches your own thyroxine hormone, and because its not glandular, it might mean fewer antibodies. Removing grains, soy and dairy can reduce antibodies, so can taking selenium. As for levothyroxine, one disadvantage that is that some of you may not fully activate the medicine into T3 thyroid hormone, so symptoms persist. This poor peripheral conversion of T4 to T3 is what I call being thyroid sick and you can activate better if you take certain natural herbs, probiotics and vitamins. I cover it all in my Thyroid Healthy book. Levothyroxine is usually started at 50 mcg (micrograms) per day, and titrated up within a few weeks to higher doses. Thyroid medicine is always taken in the morning on an empty stomach. Your physician should be monitoring free T3 and T4 during this process. If the T4 goes up to high, then balancing it with T3 from Cytomel, or from Compounded T3, which comes from a compounding pharmacy can help. 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.

I am still unsure of what her treatment will be this time. What can she do to get emotional support?A: Hearing that your friends cancer has recurred can be a devastating blow for her. She will need emotional support and guidance in addition to her treatment plan. There are many breast cancer support groups and most likely there is a support group where she is getting her treatment. The National Comprehensive Cancer Network also develops the NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology, a set of recommendations designed to help health care professionals diagnose, treat and manage cancer patient care. These guidelines have also been translated into the NCCN Treatment Summaries for People with Cancer, which help people with cancer better understand cancer diagnosis and treatment options. The National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) is a nonprofit alliance of 21 cancer centers throughout the U.S. Experts from NCCN cancer centers diagnose and treat all cancers, with a particular focus on complex, aggressive or uncommon cancers.

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, Our single, high-powered, careerminded daughter became pregnant, much to her surprise. She lives 500 miles away and visited us to ask if she could stay with us for a few days after she had her abortion. Her father and I do not believe in abortion so we talked her out of having this procedure. She delivered her baby in our city then dropped her off and went back to her own home. We were shocked and now five years later, we enjoy our granddaughter but it is becoming as strain. Our retirement years are not as we had planned and our daughter is not the least bit interested in her daughter. We are beginning to think we should have stayed out of her business. What do you think? Vicky Dear Vicky, It is often very hard for us older parents to realize that our children have grown up and are capable of making all their own decisions. She had made her decision and you and your husband had an opinion different from hers. You unfortunately find the responsibility of your grandchilds upbringing difficult with your own lifestyle. It seems so sad when so many people would dearly love to be her parents or grandparents. This is a very sad situation and I feel sad for your grandchild. Lizzie Dear Vicky, If your daughter has not attached to her child by now, what a tragedy for her. Your daughter is an adult and capable of making her own decisions and life plans. She made hers, but you decided that it was not the right decision for her. I do not know what to suggest that would make her do something she clearly does not want to do. It seems to me the questions needing to be answered are how to make your child care responsibilities easier. You need to establish support systems that will best help you and your grandchild. Best of luck. Pryce Lizzie and Pryces email address is email@example.com. Top Ten Books1. Haunted by Randy Wayne White 2. Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline 3. Deceived by Randy Wayne White 4.

It could hold fewer plusses and more negatives than you were first led to believe. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Its a good idea to finish all incomplete tasks so that you can devote your attention to next weeks projects. The weekend could hold surprises for romantic Fernandas and Ferdinands. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A workplace suggestion you made a while ago that you might have forgotten could come back with a request to turn it from idea to reality. Your social life picks up considerably this weekend. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Someone from the past could return with an intriguing opportunity for a future project. Check into it, by all means. But dont neglect your current responsibilities in the meantime. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Keeping your claws sheathed and using good humor instead to counter someone whos badmouthing the Big Cat isnt easy. But its the best way to avoid more problems down the line. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A workplace situation could improve if youre less critical and more supportive of those who are, after all, trying to do their best. Let them know youre there to help when necessary. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A new job offer might not carry all the benefits youre seeking. Make sure you know what youre entitled to, what is off the table and what is negotiable before you make a decision. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A social obligation you would rather get out of could hold some surprisingly positive aspects. Why not go and see for yourself? A family member makes a curious request. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Before tackling that new project awaiting you at home or on the job, take time out for some much-deserved pampering to help lift your spirits and restore your energy levels. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Your social calendar begins to fill up more quickly than you expected. And thats great. You deserve to enjoy some good fun after so much time spent on serious matters. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A domestic situation continues to improve, thanks to all the tender, loving concern youve shown. A colleague makes a questionable move that you might want to check out sooner rather than later. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A sudden turn in a romantic relationship calls for both a rational and passionate response. Keep the love level high, but also find out why the problem arose in the first place. BORN THIS WEEK: You often set high standards for others. But to your credit, you set the same expectations for yourself. On Sept. 2, 31 B.C., at the Battle of Actium, Roman leader Octavian wins a decisive victory against the forces of Mark Antony and Cleopatra, queen of Egypt. Antony and Cleopatra broke though the enemy lines and fled to Egypt, where they would commit suicide the following year. On Sept. 3, 1777, the American flag was flown in battle for the first time during a Revolutionary War skirmish at Coochs Bridge, Delaware. Patriot Gen. William Maxwell ordered the Stars and Stripes banner raised as a detachment of his infantry and cavalry met an advance guard of British and Hessian troops. On Sept. 1, 1807, former U.S. vice president Aaron Burr is acquitted of plotting to annex parts of Louisiana and Spanish territory in Mexico to be used toward the establishment of an independent republic. Nevertheless, public opinion condemned him as a traitor, and he fled to Europe. On Sept. 7, 1896, an electric car built by the Riker Electric Motor Company wins the first auto race in the United States, at the Narragansett Trotting Park in Rhode Island. The Riker won the race easily, finishing its five laps in about 15 minutes. The other electric car came in second, and a gas-powered Duryea took third. On Sept. 4, 1951, President Harry S. Trumans opening speech before a conference in San Francisco is broadcast across the nation, marking the first time a television program was broadcast from coast to coast. The speech was picked up by 87 stations in 47 cities. On Sept. 5, 1975, in Sacramento, California, an assassination attempt against President Gerald Ford is foiled when a Secret Service agent wrests a .45-caliber pistol from Lynette Squeaky Fromme, a follower of incarcerated cult leader Charles Manson. On Sept. 6, 1995, Baltimore Orioles shortstop Cal Ripken Jr. plays in his 2,131st consecutive game, breaking Lou Gehrigs record for most consecutive games played. Ripken went on to play 2,632 games in a row before ending the streak by voluntarily removing himself from a game in 1998. It was noted British wit Hector Hugh Monroe -better known by his pen name, Saki -who made the following sage observation: A little inaccuracy sometimes saves a ton of explanation. When Mozart was young, he traveled to Rome to hear Gregorio Allegris Miserere performed by the papal choir. This piece was performed only once a year, and the pope had forbidden its performance anywhere else in the world. There was only one copy of the score, and it was kept in a vault in the Vatican. According to a papal decree, anyone who reproduced the work in any way would be excommunicated from the Catholic Church. After Mozart heard the performance -only once -he transcribed the entire piece. When the pope heard of this feat of memory and musical genius, rather than excommunicating the prodigy, he awarded Mozart the Cross of the Order of the Golden Spur. The dog that played Toto in The Wizard of Oz was actually named Terry. It is a Moroccan man named Brahim Takioullah who has the dubious distinction of possessing the worlds largest feet. They measure 15 inches from heel to toe. A man is 10 times more likely to be color blind than a woman is. Youve probably heard the phrase long in the tooth to describe someone whos getting up there in years, but did you ever wonder where it originated? The term came from horse breeders. As equines age, their gums begin to recede; the teeth dont actually get longer, but they appear to. Therefore, a horse whose teeth look long must be getting old. If youre like 20 million other Americans, you read your horoscope on a daily basis. The nice thing about egotists is that they dont talk about other people. Lucille S. Harper THIS WEEK IN HISTORY THOUGHT FOR THE DAY STRANGE BUT TRUE

Their improbable journey has ended. However, that journey was thrilling for the millions who watched it. Miracle Poised for Post-Season Playoffs As the Fort Myers Miracle baseball team entered the final week of the regular season, they trailed first-place Palm Beach by a single game in the Florida State League South Division with seven games remaining. Regardless of the outcome, the Miracle, by virtue of winning the division title for the seasons first-half, have qualified for the playoffs. They will host the first game of the playoffs next Wednesday at JetBlue Stadium. The final games of the best-of-three first-round series will be on the road for the Miracle. Should the Miracle also win the division championship for the second-half, the team with the next best overall record in the South Division will qualify for the playoffs as their first-round opponent. Only two of the Miracles final seven games are home games Thursday and today, Friday, against Jupiter. The first pitch for both games at JetBlue Stadium is 7:05 p.m.

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.

Candy ID# 589450 Lexi ID# 592779 PAWS Seeks Homes For Sox, SportyA Pair of cats, Sox (male) and Sporty (female), were found together on the east end of Sanibel and they seem to have a close bond with each other. They are currently being boarded together at the vets office, but if PAWS cannot find them a foster home or a permanent home, they may have to be released. They are both friendly, healthy, spayed and neutered and will get their shots. If you can help, call Pam at PAWS of Sanibel at 472-4823. Sporty Sox
