This would not have been possible without the support of more than 1,000 athletes and families, without the generous sponsorships from the island businesses below and without the cooperation of island residents that enables the race to close Captiva Drive for two hours on a Sunday morning. The races island sponsors were South Seas Island Resort, LCEC, Tween Waters Inn, Billys Bike Rentals, Key Lime Bistro/RC Otters, Doc Fords Rum Bar & Grille, Jensens Twin Palms and Jensens on the Gulf, PSAV, Captiva Cruises, RS Walsh Landscaping, Sanibel Grill, and the Galloway Family of Dealerships, the title sponsor again this year.

3 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 26, 2014 Beach Piez Approved For Baileys Centerby Jeff LysiakDuring Tuesdays planning commission meeting, a conditional use permit for a carry-out pizzeria restaurant to be located in the Baileys Shopping Center was approved. Beach Piez, which will occupy the former location of Nicks Yogurt (closed in 2011) and S Spa (closed last year), plans to operate a carry-out pizza business with no indoor seats. In addition to pizza, the restaurant will offer beverage sales to go. During his presentation to the commission, city planner Benjamin Pople noted that Beach Piez is located more than 100 feet from off-site dwelling units, but less than 100 feet from the on-site employee housing. However, the fact that those housing units already exist and their inclusion within the Bailey PUD led planning staff to conclude that a specific condition would not apply to on-site residences. No increase in commercial floor area is proposed in the subject application, the staff report stated, in part. The Baileys Center site is already developed as a multiple-occupancy site using shared parking and access points to Periwinkle Way and Tarpon Bay Road. Baileys Center has made recent changes to the sites internal circulation for motor vehicles and interconnectivity to the shared use path, and a great deal of coordination exists for the proposed use and existing uses with respect to shared facilities located on the subject site. Planning commission chair Dr. Phillip Marks asked if there were enough 15-minute limit parking spaces available adjacent to the proposed carry-out restaurant, noting that there were a number of quick trip businesses including Billys Bikes and Zebra Frozen Yogurt on that end of Baileys Center. Pople confirmed that there was sufficient parking according to city code. Chuck Bergstrom, business owner of Beach Piez, and Dick Collman, his attorney, confirmed that they agreed to the 10 conditions for approval proposed by the planning department staff, which included no outdoor seating and not being part of an existing formula restaurant group or chain. Commissioner Tom Krekel made a motion to approve the conditional use permit application, which was granted with a unanimous vote, 6 to 0. In other business, planning director Jimmy Jordan announced the cancellation of commission meetings previously scheduled for November 11 and December 23.

Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellWhile sitting down and starting to write this column, I find myself thinking of three amazing Rotarians and a member of our extended Rotary family that have passed away in the last month. Rotarians Warner Byrum (retired hotelier), Brian Benham (longtime manager of Jerrys), Paul Duvall (retired dentist), and Larry Congress (founder of Congress Jewelers). These were men who led purposeful lives, worked hard, played hard, and loved hard. They all were generous of heart and generous with their support for things they cared about in our community. Their spirit will be with us for a very long time and friends will always remember the giving nature of these men and the example they have set for their families of living the Rotary motto of Service Above Self. We will all miss you, my friends. There is no direct connection between the sad passing of our Rotary friends this month and the speaker at Rotary this week but a correlation of the need for support of families that find themselves as the caretakers for family members that can no longer take care of themselves. This is a stressful and lonely task and seeking help from outside the family can help. Our guest speaker this past week was Mary Freyre, health education specialist from the Alvin A. Dubin Alzheimers Resource Center, an outstanding place for those seeking help with family members afflicted with Alzheimers Disease. Freyre said, There are community resources organizations where caretakers of family members who have Alzheimers can get help; there is no reason they have to do this alone. First off, The Dubin Center holds monthly meetings for caregivers of Alzheimers patients in 18 locations in this area. Sanibels location is at the Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ, 2050 Periwinkle Way. Meetings are held on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 1:30 p.m. These meetings will provide you with information on resources in the community that can help when dealing with the stress and strain of caring for an Alzheimers patient. They will also provide a network of friends that will provide support, whether it is respite care or you just need to talk through some of your problems. The meetings help you understand the disease and the limitation patients have in understanding their own disease and their capabilities. Safety for the patient and the caregiver are primary concerns to the program. The Dubin Center has forms that will help during emergency situations, such as Wanderers Identification, where records are put on file with authorities in case a patient goes missing. Safety emergency information packets should filled out and stored in the refrigerator in case the caretaker is not on premises during an emergency. Emergency personnel are trained to look for the Dubin Centers blue sticker placed on the refrigerator to indicate that an Alzheimers patient might be in residence and information on that person is in the refrigerator. Disaster preparedness checklists and forms are provided for caregivers. These tools/information forms help caregivers plan ahead for emergencies. This helps relieve some of the stress, knowing that the information about your loved one will help emergency crews deal with situations that may be out of the caretakers control. This information may also provide a quick response to the needs of your family member. The Dubin Center also provides a great deal of educational information about the disease and will help you with finding additional information that may pertain to your personal situation. For more information about the Alvin A. Dubin Alzhelmers Resource Center in Fort Myers, call 437-3007. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets at 7 a.m. every Friday at The Dunes Golf and Tennis Club, 949 Sand Castle Road.

Zonta Gains More Insight Into CHRCommunity Housing & Resources (CHR) is often described as Sanibels best-kept secret, but not within the Zonta Club of SanibelCaptiva. The club and its foundation have supported CHR with grant money and volunteers most years since 2003, and most members are familiar at least in broad outline with how CHR works. At a recent club meeting, members learned much more through a presentation by CHR housing administrator Patti Bohm. Since 1983, in partnership with the City of Sanibel, CHR has provided affordable housing for island workers, seniors and the disabled. Rents are structured according to income, and the 74 rental units are located in 11 neighborhoods throughout the island. Additionally, there are 14 limited-equity ownership (LEO) homes designed for purchase by island workers. What is involved in the application process? What happens when a CHR resident loses his or her job? How does CHR work with FISH of Sanibel? All of these and more questions were answered during the presentation. A CHR employee for 10 years, Bohm formerly served with a branch of Housing & Urban Development (HUD). She interviews and screens all applicants for rental units per HUD guidelines, a process which can take six weeks. All applicants must be employed full-time on the island. Those eligible for one of the special units for seniors are people who have lived on Sanibel for a number of years and have a history of contributing to the community. Every day we get calls from seniors outside the area who want to retire here, Bohm said. As far as qualifying for a CHR rental unit, it just doesnt work that way. For information on the application process and CHR in general, visit www. Zontas grants to CHR are typically earmarked for tuition assistance for residents looking to improve job prospects currently three women are taking advantage of this benefit and for down payments by female applicants on LEO homes. The number one reason for a person failing to qualify under LEO guidelines is the inability to come up with the down payment, Bohm said. The principal purpose of CHR is to provide affordable housing for island workers, establishing a readily available work force and ensuring a diversified community. Bohm estimates that at any one time, the heads of approximately three-quarters of CHR households are women. The resources in the organizations title, Bohm explained, means a wide range of support services for residents: educational advice and guidance; budgeting; health care issues; school relationships; and much more. We help our residents improve their lives in whatever ways we can, she said. We also partner with FISH of Sanibel for support that they can offer better than we can. Finally, Bohm reminded Zontians of the many volunteer opportunities CHR offers, including putting together twiceyearly mailings, helping to organize social events for seniors and other groups, and assisting at the upcoming major fundraiser, the 3rd annual Mardi Gras Party, set for February 7, 2015. The Zonta Club of Sanibel-Captiva is a service organization of professionals and executives working together to improve the status of women, on the islands, in Lee County, and around the world through Zonta International.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 26, 20148 CHR Director Addresses Members At Chamber LuncheonThe Sanibel-Captiva Chamber of Commerce held its monthly business luncheon on Tuesday, September 16 at Sundial Beach Resort and Spa. The event was sponsored by Baileys General Store. Kelly Collini, executive director of Community Housing and Resources (CHR), gave an introduction to CHR and the benefits that the organization brings to the island as a whole. She also highlighted the benefits to the business community of having on-island low cost housing for employees, enabling employees to be available for on-call, evening or weekend shifts. We couldnt do what we do without you, said Collini, speaking to the sold-out group of nearly 100 attendees. As business representatives in the community, you know how important affordable housing is to the island. CHR relies on partnerships with island businesses to support our program and to tell people that there are affordable housing options on Sanibel for full-time Sanibel workers. Collini explained how CHR residents must work on Sanibel full-time and that their rent is based on their income. Rent is 30 percent of gross income, she said. To qualify, you must maintain full-time employment on Sanibel. We follow HUD for income level limits and all this information is available on our website at SanibelCHR. com. Collini said volunteerism by CHRs residents is highly encouraged, and many of the residents do volunteer by performing tasks around CHRs properties and by helping with special events. CHR also encourages residents to volunteer in the greater Sanibel community and many residents are active in that way as well. Im proud of how our residents have stepped up and really taken ownership of their homes, Collini added. What we do is a hand up, not a hand out and our residents are very thankful for it. In turn, were thankful to our island businesses for your ongoing support. The chamber holds monthly business luncheons for its members to network and socialize. For more information, visit Robyn Moran and Lynn Ridlehoover, both members of Zonta Ric Base, president of the Sanibel-Captiva Chamber of Commerce; Sanibel Mayor Kevin Ruane; chamber chair Aaron Pruss of Becker and Poliakoff; and Chris Heidrick of Heidrick & Co.

9 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 26, 2014 Baileys General Store Supports FISH 10K RaceBaileys General Store, The Coffee Bar @ Baileys and Sanibel Catering Company are taking part in the 6th annual 10K Race 4 FISH, which starts at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, October 18 at The Community House. The Coffee Bar @ Baileys will have fresh cappuccino-based coffees to get everyone off and running in the morning. Baileys General Store is providing back-pack style bags with race day treats for runners something the long-established island grocery and hardware store has done since the inaugural run. Baileys General Store, formerly known as Sanibel Packing Company, was started by Frank P. Bailey, who wanted to provide groceries and general supplies to locals and visitors. Since 1895, the Bailey family has been working to build the community on our island, said Richard Johnson, owner of Baileys General Store with his wife, Mead (Bailey). Three generations later, that drive and will to improve without harming our little piece of paradise still goes on today. The third generation is proud to play a part in that and is planning for the fourth generation to carry on that tradition. The Sanibel Catering Company by Baileys will provide fruit and other healthy snacks on race day, as well as bagels so runners can recharge after their run. We are grateful for the support of Mead and Richard Johnson, as owners of Baileys General Store, said FISH board of directors and 10K committee member Ed Ridlehoover. The services they provide, not just on race day, but every day to our community is invaluable. Race proceeds support the nonprofit FISH of Sanibel-Captiva, Inc., an organization which has impacted the lives of thousands of residents and visitors through its various Helping Hands programs and food pantry. It has been a part of the community for more than three decades neighbors helping neighbors. Its team of volunteers have transported clients to non-emergency medical appointments, delivered hot meals to home-bound clients and provided nutritious meals to youth in need.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 26, 201410 PAUL D. DUVALPaul D. Duval, 85, passed away peacefully in Baltimore, Maryland on September 14, 2014, surrounded by his loving family. Born in South Hadley, Massachusetts to Donat and Evalina Duval, Paul had a brother, Andre N. Duval, and a sister, Eva M. Duval, both of whom predeceased him. Paul attended South Hadley High School and received undergraduate and graduate degrees in science from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. After serving in the Air Force in the Korean War, Paul received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Georgetown University. He practiced general dentistry in South Hadley for 30 years, where he raised his family. Paul and his wife, Marilyn, retired to Sanibel Island in 1997. A self-taught naturalist, he was active in the Sanibel community with the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation, the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, the Sanibel Rotary Club and the Sanibel Senior Center. Marilyn predeceased him in 2004. Paul is survived by his children, Andree Duval of Baltimore, Maryland, Denise Duval and her husband Tom Dame of Baltimore, Maryland, Julie Westervelt and her husband Bill of Peru, Maryland, and Paul J. Duval of Hatfield, Massachusetts. He also leaves behind four beloved grandchildren, Emily, Avery, Ingrid and Matthew. Family and friends are invited to celebrate Pauls life on Friday, October 3 at 11:30 a.m. at a funeral mass at St. Isabel Catholic Church, 3559 Sanibel-Captiva Road, Sanibel. Online condolences may be made at In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations in Pauls name be made to Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation, 3333 Sanibel-Captiva Road, Sanibel, FL 33957 or OBITUARY LAWRENCE (LARRY) CONGRESSLawrence (Larry) Congress, 83, of Sanibel Island, Florida passed away peacefully on Friday, September 19, 2014. Larry was born in Flint, Michigan to William and Molly (Zeligman) Congress on July 31, 1931. His 60-year jewelry career began after he graduated Indiana University in 1953, and apprenticed with his brother-in-law Robert (Bob) Freed at Palmers Jewelers located in Kokomo, Indiana. Within two years, Larry bought Walkers Jewelers located in Elkhart, Indiana and ran a successful business for more than 20 years. Larry met his soul mate, Dee, daughter of competing jeweler Sam Pliskin, while she was on an errand for her dad. Larry and Dee, as they were affectionately known, were married in 1961 in Elkhart, Indiana, where they soon started a family. In 1973, Larry and Dee moved to Peoria, Illinois to join his brother Bob Congress in operating 10+ fine jewelry departments located within Bergners Department Stores. From there, Larry spent many years on the road with Seiko Watch Corporation, where he built many friendships in the jewelry industry. He was a million-dollar writer and earned many awards while with Seiko. In 1981, at age 50, tired of the road and being away from his family, the Congresses moved to Florida to begin a new career. He purchased a bike and boat rental business at Casa Ybel Resort on Sanibel Island, where vacationers soon realized his background in jewelry. Larry and Dees love for the beach, shells and sunshine inspired a collection of nautical and seashell jewelry made in gold. His first creation was a 14k gold olive shell, his beloved wife Dees favorite shell. In 1984, his eldest son Scot returned from college to run the bike and boat business so Dee and Larry could open Congress Jewelers, located in Periwinkle Place Shopping Center, where it still stands today. Larrys unique talent as an artist resonated in every facet of his life. He was an extraordinary pianist, talented artist, model airplane enthusiast and a unique soul, but he always said his greatest accomplishment was his nine grandchildren. He was an avid supporter of the arts and a charter member of BIG ARTS and the Sanibel Music Festival, and he started and funded the Congress Jewelers Play Reading Series at The Schoolhouse Theater on Sanibel. Larry was a member of Temple Beth El, Fort Myers and Temple Bat Yam, Sanibel. He is survived by his children Scot (Melissa), Juli Bobman (Stuart), Doug (Melanie), Brad (Colbi); his grandchildren Whitney, Andrew, Dana, Rebecca, Michael, Jennifer, Joshua, Kelsey and Georgia; and many nieces, nephews and cousins. Larry was predeceased by his wife of 47 years Dee Congress, sister Fran Freed, brother-in-law Robert Freed and brother Bob Congress, all retail jewelers. Services and interment were held Sunday, September 21, 2014. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to BIG ARTS of Sanibel. A celebration honoring Larry will be held on Sanibel Island in the very near future. TBA. OBITUARY Churches/ TemplesANNUNCIATION GREEK ORTHODOX CHURCH: 8210 Cypress Lake Drive, Fort Myers Rev.

IRS Fraud AlertLast week, City of Sanibel Chief of Police Bill Tomlinson issued a community advisory cautioning citizens to be extremely alert and aware when responding to requests for personal financial information from solicitors over the phone especially payments to individuals claiming to be IRS representatives. There are many scams and unscrupulous people attempting to access your personal financial accounts for the opportunity to steal from you, said Tomlinson. Never give your bank account numbers or social security number to a solicitor over the phone. The most recent scam involves an individual claiming to be from the Internal Revenue Service. The caller is saying that you owe money from back taxes and you will be arrested and your property will be seized if payment is not received by a certain time the following day. We do not want any citizen of Sanibel to become a victim of unscrupulous persons and scams added Tomlinson. If you have any questions or to report a suspicious solicitation, call the Sanibel Police Department at 472-3111.

Open to the public, this dinner and dance will benefit the local Lions Club which uses proceeds from its fundraising events to help the local community. From supporting sight-based services, providing academic scholarships and various other local community needs, Lions members work hard year round with unmatched energy to raise money for local charities.

As a special treat, the electrifying tunes will be accompanied by complimentary dance lessons by David Flory of the Island Ballroom. All of the dancing and excitement is sure to generate guests appetites, which will be pleasantly pleased with the delicious dinner offerings provided by one of Sanibels favorite restaurants, Cips Place. We are so thrilled to put on this exciting evening of dinner and dancing. The Lions work hard to support our local community but this particular event will allow the public to see that our efforts are enjoyable as much as they are beneficial, said Bruce Cochrane, the clubs president. We cant wait to see our guests in their island formal attire as they dance the night away for a great cause.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 26, 201414 Summit Christian School Students Spend A Day On The WaterStudents from Summit Christian School took a field trip to Tarpon Bay Explorers on Friday, September 5 to experience wildlife living within Tarpon Bay and the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge. They also learned a lesson in teamwork; each child partnered up in a double kayak. Students learned the importance of mangroves and sea grasses to the ecosystem. Also, they learned kayaking with another person requires teamwork, patience and endurance, said Kyle Mast, fieldtrip supervisor. Tarpon Bay Explorers naturalist Dexter Norris led the group into Commodore Creek Trail, stopping along the way to discuss the mangrove estuary ecosystem and its flora and fauna. The children and teachers saw an assortment of wildlife, from different species of birds to mangrove tree crabs. The class was very enthusiastic about the trip. I was impressed with their inquiries and paddling abilities, said Norris. The trip concluded with a race back to the starting point. This field trip was also a way to get students excited about school. It was great to see our students come in with smiles on their faces, eager to learn. Field trips like kayaking in Tarpon Bay allow us to create a positive and engaging environment at our school, said Mast. Tours with an experienced guide are a great way to learn about local wildlife.

It can be used in jellies, jams, pastries or juices, or eaten right off the tree. This member of the myrtle family is also known as Chinese or cherry guava. It was brought to South Florida in the 1880s for commercial fruit production and for its ornamental value. In pioneer days, entrepreneurs on both the states east and west coast made guava jellies and jams to ship within the U.S. and to Europe as a specialty food. The popular fruit tree is a native of Brazil and has escaped cultivation in central and south Florida. It is listed as a category-I invasive plant species by the Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council. Plants in that category have caused documented ecological damage by altering native plant communities by displacing native species, changing community structures or ecological functions, or hybridizing with natives, according to the council. Strawberry guava forms thickets that shade-out native species. In addition, it is as a major host for the naturalized Caribbean fruit fly, an enemy of the states citrus industry. Strawberry guava usually reaches about 25 feet tall, often with two to three trunks. The peeling bark varies from gray to reddish brown. The elliptic to oblong leaves are up to four inches long and somewhat leathery. It blooms all year, producing whitepetaled flowers with white and yellow stamens. The red to purple fruit of about two inches long contains many seeds and is sweet when ripe. Fallen fruit readily reseeds and wildlife eat the fruit and spread the seeds. Sources: Florida, My Eden by Frederic B. Stresau;; and Plant Smart explores the plant life of South Florida and sustainable landscape practices. Strawberry guava is an ornamental fruit tree brought to Florida in the 1880s Despite its status as a category-1 invasive plant, the tree is appreciated for the fruit photos by Gerri Reaves 15 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 26, 2014


ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 26, 201416 Early Fall Changes Happeningby Capt. Matt MitchellRainy days kept most anglers off the water for at least a few days this week. The culprit was a slow moving early season cold front, which brought us three days of what seemed like never ending light soaking rain. While fishing on both sides of this rain event, redfish and mangrove snapper both kept clients rods bent. Although I never found a wide open bite this week on snook or redfish, every outing produced at least a few quality fish along with the big mangrove snapper which have been my go-to species for at least the last month.All indications Im seeing out on the water are pointing at an early change to fall-like conditions. Subtle signs are the masses of whitebait that have already shown up almost a month earlier than usual. Daily bald eagle sightings are also another sure fire indicator that it is already got unseasonably cold up north. I am by no means a weather authority but when we have gotten a cold front this early in past years, it generally means we have a cooler than normal winter in store. As water temperatures cool, look for our redfish bite to just keep getting better. During lower tide stages, watch for schools of redfish pushing water on edges of shallow flats, these schooled up fish which often number in the hundreds are fast moving and spooky. Most of the time you will only get a few shots at them before they move on so having a long casting lure rigged up and ready to go is key. When looking for these schooled up reds during calm water periods, dont over ook the big mullet schools out on the flats. Redfish are mixed in with these mullet and feeding on what the mullet stir up.Consistent big bull redfish fishing is also happening in and around the passes. Good numbers of way over the slot redfish have been reported from Lighthouse Point, Captiva and Redfish passes during the last few weeks, with the average fish being in the mid 30-inch range. Using live pinfish fished on the bottom has been the way to go. These big spawning bull reds are some of the largest we see all year. If youre looking for a personal best redfish, now is the time. Mangrove snapper action still seems not to have peaked. Every trip this week, we managed at least a few mangrove snapper in the 15to 16-inch range with lots of 12to 14-inch fish. Freelined live shiners and small pinfish are the baits of choice. Any mangrove shoreline that I have fished for redfish and snook has had at least a few mangrove snapper there too. If you really want to fire these fish up, chumming live shiners has been the way; these fish simply cant resist, and explode on the bait. On light tackle, they are a blast to catch. Snook action for most anglers has been a little harder to come by after what was one of the best catch-and-release summers in recent years. Despite the huge numbers of fish in the passes all summer long, snook action since the September 1 opening has been very hit and miss. This is due to the fact that these fish are spread out this time of year. Cooling water will start to bunch up the snook in better numbers in their middle ground fall haunts. This month is the big transition month for snook as they make the way back from the beaches and passes to the back country. Mangrove points and oyster bars with good moving current are the best options. With so much white bait around, these fish will start feeding hard soon and packing on the pounds for winter. While enjoying a day off on the water this week, I was lucky enough to land a 32-inch snook. This top of the slot sized snook ate a small freelined live shiner intended for mangrove snapper. Using only a light 2000 series spinning reel with 10-pound braid and a 20-pound leader this snook ran me all over the place. It made it to the barnacle crusted trees at least twice before I managed to slow and turn it. While fishing with clients this week, snook action was a little tougher with only a few shorts and a few chances at bigger fish that broke off or threw the hook. 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.

CROW Case Of The Week: Eastern Cottontailsby Patricia MolloyEarlier this month, two little Eastern cottontails (Sylvilagus floridanus) were admitted together as abandoned, abducted or orphaned siblings. As with all in-coming patients, the babies were given a thorough examination by one of CROWs wildlife veterinarians. The cottontails were very young no more than two or three days old and were quiet but responsive. One of them was sick and very thin, so we put it on Baytril for a couple of days, stated Dr. Jen Riley, DVM intern. Baytril is a prescription antibiotic used by veterinarians to treat bacterial infections in animals. Rabbits have extremely delicate tummies, and many antibiotics that work well on other animals can cause irreversible damage to a bunnys system. As a result, Dr. Heather Barron monitored the medicated cottontail very closely. With additional supportive care, the patients health improved quickly. It got better within a day or two, added Dr. Jen. They both look good now and are gaining weight. We make sure that there are lots and lots of greens in the hatch, because they will lose weight if we dont have enough in there. As soon as the fuzzy siblings are mature enough to survive on their own, they will be released back into the wild. If you find a sick or injured wild animal, contact a first responder in patient admissions (472-3644) immediately for instructions. If the animal requires medical attention, but you live off-island, you may be advised to deliver the patient to one of the nine domestic veterinarian clinics that CROW has partnered with in Lee County. Volunteers make daily pick-up excursions to these select locations. If you want to learn more about the 4,000 sick, injured and orphaned wildlife patients that are treated at CROW each year, attend a Wonders Of Wildlife presentation at the Visitor Education Center. Topics vary and most of the programs are conducted by clinic staff members and/or veterinarians. For a complete schedule of events, go to CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Inc.) is a non-profit wildlife hospital providing veterinary care for native and migratory wildlife from our local area. The hospital accepts patients seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mail donations to P.O. Box 150, Sanibel, FL 33957. Call 472-3644 or visit These adorable Eastern cottontails, patients #2272 and #2273, are siblings. Upon arrival, one of the bunnies was quite thin and sick. Thanks to the efforts of the wildlife veterinarians, they are healthy and will soon be released back into the wild. 19 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 26, 2014 239.472.2328 www.sanibelthriller.comReservations are required Also Available for Private Charters Departing from Sanibel Marina 634 N.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 26, 201428 Shell Of The WeekDark False Musselby Jos H. Leal, PhD, The BaileyMatthews National Shell Museum Science Director & CuratorA brackish water bivalve mollusk native to the Gulf of Mexico, the dark false mussel, Mytilopsis leucophaeata Conrad, 1831 has been introduced to the mid-Atlantic American states, Europe and south to northeastern Brazil, possibly via ballast water in ships or among living oysters. Dark false mussel have non-descript, light-colored shells that may grow to about -inch. They may be found locally on Sanibel in brackish water ponds and in the canals at the eastern end of the island. The mussels, which belong to the same family (Dreissenidae), as the infamous zebra mussels, will congregate in large clumps around underwater vegetation and hard structures. They are not as pervasive and potentially damaging an introduced species as the zebra mussel, though. Learn more about the dark false mussel at http://shellmuseum. org/shells/shelldetails.cfm?id=254.

My club had a great time talking about the characters and theme of the book. It deals with a young woman, Louisa Clark, who was content in her humdrum job at a small cafe until her boss announces he is closing the establishment. Desperate for a job to help support her parents, Louisa becomes a caregiver for a wheelchair-bound man who is prickly and embittered after the accident that paralyzed him from the neck down. Will Traynor was a wealthy Master of the Universe, climbing mountains and a corporate player who bought and sold companies for obscene profits. Now, he cant even feed himself. At first, Louisa is intimidated by Will and his mother Camilla and Will resents Louisas very presence. Slowly, the two grow closer and Will convinces Louisa that she deserves more respect from everyone in her life, including herself. When Louisa learns that Will has shocking plans of his own, she sets out to show him that life is still worth living. She begins researching technologies that can give him more autonomy and looking for outings that he might find appealing. Each ends up changing the other in ways that neither could ever have anticipated. This is an inspiring, captivating and heartbreaking book. Its one that will make you question how Will felt after his accident and his outlook on life. Youll talk about how Louisa was able to reach Will when so many others could not. As one reviewer said, Moyes has created an affair to remember. Me Before You is a page-turner that keeps readers on their toes with the chemistry and witty repartee of the main characters. Sanibel Beach Experience Inspired Childrens Bookby Ed FrankInspired by a frolicking pup on the beaches of Sanibel who bonded with a friendly dolphin swimming nearby, a noted educator has written a delightful childrens book, The Dog and the Dolphin, illustrated by the famed artist Michael Chelich. It all began when the author, James B. Dworkin, chancellor of Purdue University North Central, was vacationing with his family on Sanibel when he noticed the pup, Red, lonely walking the beach nose down in search of what dogs usually look for. Suddenly, an offshore splash caught Reds attention. Was it a shark or swordfish? No... it was a dolphin. Clearly, the dog was interested in the dolphin as was the dolphin interested in Red. When Red frolicked up the beach, the dolphin followed in the same direction in the water. When Red reversed direction, the dolphin reversed direction. Back and forth they went, time after time. Once, Red even scooped up a Frisbee and dashed into the water in an attempt to interest the dolphin in a game of Frisbee. The intrigue of Red and his friend the dolphin was so fascinating that Dworkin began working on a childrens book and asked Chelich to illustrate the story. The beautifully illustrated book will charm young children as well as dogloving, dolphin-loving adults. Dworkin has written books on baseball, industrial relations and numerous articles for professional publications. But this is his first childrens book. Its popularity could inspire more.continued on page 35


ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 26, 201430 Many of you who have revocable living trusts understand the importance of transferring your assets into the trust. Simply referencing the assets or property on a schedule at the end of the trust is insufficient to constitute a transfer, instead it is important that the deed (in the case of real property) or the bank and brokerage accounts name the trust directly on the statements. As an example, rather than having a brokerage account titled in the name of John Q. Client, the brokerage account should instead be titled as John Q. Client, Trustee, for the John Q. Client trust dated January 10, 2014. And be very careful about the date. Sometimes the account date is transposed, missing or otherwise incorrect. This can create major headaches upon the disability or death of the grantor the person who creates the trust. Suppose for example that John Q. Client creates a trust on January 10, 2000. His broker accidentally titles the account: John Q. Client, Trustee for the John Q. Client Trust dated January 1, 2000. Note that the date is incorrect. It says January 1 and not January 10 of 2000. Everyone proceeds on their merry way until one day John gets sick and his wife Jane takes over as trustee. The trust account should now read: Jane R. Client, Trustee, for the John Q. Client Trust dated January 10, 2000. But when Jane presents the trust to the brokerage firm verifying that she is the successor trustee, the brokerage firms legal department says that they cant make the change. When they examine the trust that says Jane is the successor trustee, the date is something different than the date that they have in their records. They inquire if there might be a different trust that owns this account. You can imagine the frustration. The error is plain and simple to explain. But the brokerage firms legal department fears liability. What if there really is another trust of that date? And what if that trust has a different named successor trustee and different beneficiaries? Eventually these sorts of problems can be worked out, but usually not without a lot of aggravation and attorney time and expense. Date errors happen more frequently than you care to imagine. Consider if John Q. Client has a trust dated January 10, 2000 but then he restates it on September 23, 2010 and amends it again on November 15, 2012. John goes into his local bank branch and asks them to title his most recent certificate of deposit in his trust dated November 15, 2012. Except thats not really the date of the trust. Thats the date of the amendment! This is usually easier to explain but also can cause problems. Even worse Ive seen it where a bank not only accidentally used the amendment date of the trust, but got the amendment date wrong! In my example above, it would be like John Q. Client put the certificate of deposit into his trust dated November 25, 2012. There is no such trust neither is there an amendment to his trust of that date! Another problem exists when you have both husband and wife as trustees of each others trusts at the same time, but the bank or brokerage department doesnt fully title the account. Suppose that John Q. Client has a trust dated January 10, 2000 and his wife Jane is also a trustee. Here, the correct title to the account would read: John Q. Client, Trustee and Jane R. Client, Trustee for the John Q. Client Trust dated January 10, 2000. Lets suppose that Jane signed her trust the same day, which is common. Further assume that her husband John is a co-trustee of her trust as well. The correct title to her trust may therefore be: Jane R. Client, Trustee and John Q. Client, Trustee for the Jane R. Client Trust dated January 10, 2000. So whos trust is the account in when it is titled like this: John Q. Client, Trustee and Jane R. Client Trustee under trust dated January 10, 2000? Note that the title on the account isnt specific. This can also create a mess that would take time, energy and money to untangle. The bottom line is to pay attention to account titles. Banks and brokerage firms often abbreviate titles such as TTEE for trustee and will date numerically such as /10/2000. This is fine so long as all of the other information can either be found on the account statement title or on the account application form when the account was established. Craig R. Hersch.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 26, 201432 U.S. Team Heavy Underdogs In This Weekends Ryder Cupby Ed FrankThe biggest weekend in professional golf is upon us with the American Ryder Cup squad intent on revenging the 2012 team collapse when they lost eight of the 12 final day matches to the Europeans which resulted in a shocking 14-1/2-13/12 point loss. The Europe team has won five of the last six matches and is favored to win again this weekend at the famed Gleneagles in Scotland. Playing on foreign soil with a relatively young team, Captain Tom Watson will have to provide some magic when he selects his lineup against a veteran European squad that includes the worlds No. 1 player, Rory McIlroy, and No. 3, Sergio Garcia. Because Watson had to finalize his 12-member team prior to the season-ending Fed Ex Cup, he did not select three Americans who surged in those final weeks Billy Horschel, who won the $10 million Fed Ex, and Ryan Palmer and Chris Kirk. Three on the U.S. team are rookies without previous Ryder Cup experience Jordan Spieth, Jimmy Walker and Patrick Reed. The nine remaining veterans have a combined 45-52-19 Ryder Cup record. The European team also has three rookies: Victor Dubuisson, Jamie Donaldson and Stephen Gallacher. But their nine veterans have racked up an overwhelming 69-42-18 record. These figures show why the U.S. team is such an underdog. Nine of the 12 players on each team are selected via a formula based on prize money from the last two seasons. The team captains select the remaining three. Watson chose Keegan Bradley, Hunter Mahan and Webb Simpson. Its true that the U.S. team is missing some of the biggest names in professional golf such as Tiger Woods, Dustin Johnson and Jason Dufner, who are sidelined for various reasons. But the Americans vow to reverse the disheartening 2012 loss at the Medinah course in Chicago. The following are the Ryder Cup records of the nine team members on the American roster with previous experience: Jim Furyk 9-17-4 Bubba Watson 5-5-1 Matt Kuchar 3-2-2 Rickie Fowler 0-1-2 Phil Mickelson 14-18-6 Zach Johnson 6-4-1 Hunter Mahan 3-2-3 Keegan Bradley 3-1 The following are the records of the European team members: Rory McIIroy 4-3-2 Sergio Garcia 16-8-4 Henrik Stenson 2-3-2 Justin Rose 6-3 Martin Kaymer 3-2-1 Graeme McDowell 5-5-2 Thomas Bjorn 3-2-1 Ian Poulter 12-3 Lee Westwood 18-13-6 You will note that seven of the nine Europeans have winning Ryder Cup records compared to only four with winning records on the U.S. team. The Ryder Cup, however, is played for love of country in team competition in a sport dominated by individual play. It should be an exciting weekend, particularly if Watsons American squad pulls off an upset. SPORTS QUIZ 1.

33 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 26, 2014 School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My third grade daughter has been back at school now for well over a month and she is still showing signs of anxiety. Shes a bright child and can do her schoolwork without much difficulty. She also has friends and overall is a happy child. I just cant figure out why she is still anxious. What do you think? Renee M., Fort Myers Renee, Some children experience higher levels of anxiety than a parent expects. Often, children who have difficulty with change may experience higher levels of anxiety or they may be picking up anxieties at home and reflecting them. It does sound that she is coping, since you are reporting good schoolwork and friendships, but here are some tips that may reduce her anxiety: Allow your daughter to make some decisions so she feels as sense of control. Since going to school is not a choice, let her make some choices in other areas of her life, perhaps in choosing her breakfast and lunch, her clothing and maybe even her morning schedule. Talking about morning schedule brings up another way to help your daughter. Getting into the routine for school for morning, afterschool and at home is often difficult for kids after a more relaxed summer. Talk about her routines with her, ask her whats working and what isnt, and see if you can make her routines easier to implement and follow. At this point, you too may also be feeling some anxiety. It would be best if you did not share these feelings with your daughter. Dont reflect your anxiety with questions like Were you OK at school today? If you are worried about her school day, make sure to ask her a neutral question such as Tell me three things that you liked or didnt like about school today. Allow your daughter an opportunity to share her feelings about school and validate them. Maybe she doesnt like a certain teacher or student. Role-play the situation to come up with ways for her to cope with her concerns. Celebrate the positive. Make specific positive comments about how her work is improving or how you enjoy seeing her read different types of books. Specific praise is far more effective that a general comment of great job or good work. Help her manage any commitments. Does she have to practice for two sports and piano? Maybe she needs fewer activities. Assess how her commitments impact her life and perhaps go more slowly next year when school begins. Some children just need more time to adjust to the rigors of the school day. Hopefully, these small changes will help your daughter to feel more comfortable. If you do not see any change by mid-October, or you see a decline its important for you to check in with her teachers to find out what they see and if you need to go further and discuss this with your pediatrician.

Superior InteriorsBeautiful Window Treatmentsby Cindy MalszyckiGreat top treatments are the crowing glory of any window treatment. Sheers, over-draperies or side panels are shown at their best, when a top treatment has been added. Top treatments are truly unique and make a definite statement that shows your special style and personality. What better way to set off your dining room than with a custom-designed window treatment, complete with a dramatic top treatment? Top treatments can actually save you energy, transform the height and width of your windows, coordinate with other fabrics in the room and, best of all, they can cover up utilitarian drapery hardware and rods. The most attractive drapery can be spoiled by opening it and exposing plain white rods. The simplest and most well known top treatment is probably a pleated or shirred valance. Made like its traversing drapery counterpart, it helps to finish off the treatment and carry the fabric and color across the window area. These valances can be dressed up with scallops, trims, braiding or even a contrasting fabric to set it off from your main drapery fabric. No matter what style you choose, a distinctive top treatment will surely be a beautiful focal point in your dining room design. Cindy Malszycki is an interior designer on Sanibel/Captiva Islands.

Feeling that the tasks of living are just too much and you just cant focus? If you feel this way, know that your buddy, Triple Warmer, the commander of our energies, is doing its job to keep you safe, placing you in overdrive to handle the onslaught of tasks and decisions needed. But, it doesnt feel very good. You know that because all the blood has rushed from your brain to your arms and legs or to your core preparing you to fight or run, that you cant think to make a good decision. Triple Warmer smoothie exercise to the rescue! It will melt away the anger, frustration, terror and sense of being overwhelmed. It works because we are taking energy out of the Triple Warmer meridian, so you are able to energetically calm. Heres how: 1. Place all fingers of each hand on each temple. Take one deep breath as you breath in through nose and out through mouth 2. As you inhale a second breath, slide the fingers up and around to the top of your ears as you maintain comfortable pressure against the skin 3. On the exhale, the fingers should be at the top of the ears as you slide the fingers down and behind the ears, press them into the back of your neck as you bring them to rest on the shoulders 4. While pushing the fingers into the back of shoulders, take another breath or two. With pressure, drag the fingers across the top of shoulders; bring them to rest in the middle of your chest over the heart chakra. Flatten the hands, with one on top of the other. 5. Hold this position for several deep breaths, inhaling through the nose and exhaling through the mouth. Have fun with your energy! Next weeks topic is EEM First Aid Hold Front & Back Of Head To Calm.

Poets Corner selected by Tanya HochschildA Christmas Card For Ericaby Diego Alejandro FernandezIt is impossible to drown In the dead sea. The irony of it rings in with every wave, Every bundle of sunlight chips carried like a winter flock of birds in swirling and piling currents, to be heaped like so much gold dust upon my feet, pale and scarred beneath this new color which you invented for me. I come upon colors that way, As infants do words; each brought to me walking, a new human revelation. Just so, I found blues and greens in eyes or stinging plants, red in blood and lips and something called carmine in the suspension of despair. I started with white, invented by me, in the glare of wakefulness and insanity. And you gave me gold. Gave it outright in your hair, drinking day In subtleties of dust and mud and the shine of wood. You gave me gold In a forest called Black. I carry it to these places seas and deserts where I cannot die, ring the brass bells as they may.Diego Fernandez, a student at FGCU, draws inspiration for his writing from the writing of Nabokov and Ondaatje, the works of van Gogh and the recognition of plants and video games.

37 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 26, 2014 Mom And Me by Lizzie and PryceLizzie and Pryce answer your questions and give advice about aging concerns from a two-generational perspective. A mother and daughter team, Lizzie is a retired RN and health educator, and Pryce is a licensed psychotherapist in private practice who specializes in the care of elders and people with chronic illnesses. Dear Mom & Me, My husband and I moved into a 55-plus community 10 years ago. Without hesitation, we signed all of the legal documents that said, No one under the age of 18 would be living permanently in our home because we thought no one would. Then, our son and his wife both developed extreme health problems, so we had to take their kids ages 7, 9 and 14 on a temporary basis. That was two years ago. The kids have to play and they do make noise, and they also leave their stuff around. The older one is now driving and he needed a car to go to school, etc. It is all a big mess and now we have been given notice from the community that the children must leave. They feel that they have been very understanding (and they have), but we make too much noise, it is against the original documents to have children under 18 permanently and their patience is exhausted. The real estate market is so bad the kids parents are struggling with their problems and now we have ours. What do you suggest we do? Todd Dear Todd, It seems that you are in a very difficult position with little wiggle room. If you signed a contract stipulating no minors may live permanently, you do have an obligation to meet the terms of the contract. As an option, is it possible for your grandchildren to live with you during the week and go home to their parents during the weekend, with private duty support? What I am suggesting is hiring a private duty individual to care for the children while they are at their parents home, since the parents are not in a position to care for them. In this way, the children are not living permanently with you, and are able to see their parents while being cared for appropriately. In the meantime, you need to explore other options to move if this interim would not be possible. Pryce Dear Todd, I am very sorry that you find yourself in this dilemma. Homeowners associations have a great deal of power, and these associations are in complete control and you must obey their demands. In the short term, I hope Pryces suggestion might work, but I am sorry to say you should start to look immediately for other housing options. Lizzie Lizzie and Pryces email address is Beauty Inside OutRenourish Your Mind, Body And Soulby Kay CaspersonEvery so often, beach renourishment becomes a hotly debated topic in Southwest Florida but one thing Im sure we can all agree on is how important it is to renourish our minds, bodies and souls, every single day. We know how to properly fuel and nourish our bodies we eat lots of nutrient-rich foods, take our vitamins, drink lots of water and get plenty of exercise, sleep and sunshine but we tend to forget about nourishing our souls, especially when we get busy or stressed out with work, school or home. Neglecting our emotional and spiritual needs throws our lives off balance, leaving us feeling tired, disheartened, discouraged or maybe depressed, and this can cause even more problems. Nourish your mind and spirit by focusing on uplifting affirmations, surrounding yourself with inspiration and positivity, and reflecting through meditation or prayer. Choose one of the following affirmations (or all three) and reflect on ways you can renourish from the inside out emotionally, spiritually, physically, environmentally and socially. I am taking time to care for myself every day Whether its a brisk walk around the block or an hour to read a book, set aside time to care for yourself and only yourself. Even if its only a few minutes alone to quietly relax and reflect, make sure you have opportunities throughout the day to refocus and find your center if youre not feeling your best, how can you be at your best as a parent, employee or student? In other words, dont feel guilty about devoting time to yourself you deserve it! I will make my health a top priority in my life When life gets busy, bad decisions are convenient like skipping workouts and grabbing fast food on-the-go. But ifcontinued on page 42

In no particular order: How can I get a lower dose of medication since the tablet or capsule only comes in one strength? Easy to solve! Call the pharmacist and ask if the capsule contents can be dumped into applesauce and, if the answer is yes, then dump out half (or a quarter) of the contents and recap it. Save the rest for later. Tablets that can be broken are easy to spot. Youll see a breakable score in the middle of the tablet. If the answer is no, this medicine cannot be split or dumped, then have your doctor call it in to a compounding pharmacy. They prepare special dosages. For example, Viagra, the super sex pill is also used for cardiovascular conditions. Some men and women cannot take the full Viagra dosage, so the same active ingredient (sildenafil) is mixed into a liquid, allowing you to take lower doses or titrate up. How do I deal with a rude clerk? Yep, this happens. I would certainly tell the store or pharmacy manager about your experience. How do I deal with high prescription prices? There are pharmacy assistance programs that offer deep discounts to those who are in need, but the paperwork is extensive depending on the drug you are applying for. I recommend generics where available. If the medication you take does not come in generic, then switch to a sister drug in the same class that does come in generic. An example of this is with Abilify, the medication that had the highest amount of sales in the U.S., in 2013 hitting $6,460,215,394.00 (thats 6.5 billion US dollars!) and the generic isnt available until 2015. So if you cant afford Abilify, used for various emotional and psychiatric disorders, you should ask your doctor to rewrite the prescription for Risperdal. This drug has a similar effect on the body as Abilify, but it has a more affordable generic equivalent right now. These drugs are not exactly the same ingredient, but they have some similar effects on the brain. What do I do if the pharmacy I go to is out of stock? If you can wait for them to order your medication I would do that. Ask if they can advance you three pills until it comes in. Many pharmacies will grant this so long as it is not a controlled (addictive) substance but the judgment for this is with each pharmacist. Computers today allow pharmacists to check another stores stock to see if another location has your drug. To prevent running out, keep a list of your meds and when they are due. You can also ask your pharmacist to automatically refill your medicine, and they will track when it comes due and automatically refill it.

Insurance Tip Take Time To Inventoryby Angela Larson RoehlClients are usually advised at the time of a loss to keep receipts, take photos and make temporary repairs to prevent further damage from occurring. But what can the client do before a loss occurs to assure that they will be compensated fairly for a loss to their belongings? Clients should have an inventory of their belongings, and its highly advisable to take photos and/or a video of all the contents in their home just in case a loss occurs. If the client can provide the adjuster with this information, it can make the claim settlement more expedient as it can give an accurate account of the items the client had, as well as prove the quality of the item. Clients should take photos or a video of all their belongings and store the information in a safe place like a safety deposit box, another residence or give a copy to family/friends; and make sure to give a copy to your insurance agent. Taking the time to do this important task now will save you time and possibly lessen your heartache when a loss might occur.

Deal with it at once, and then take off on that welldeserved trip. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Aspects favor cultural activities for sensuous Bovines. Attend a concert or an art show. Better yet, create something yourself (a poem, perhaps?), and dedicate it to someone special. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Respect any doubts you might now be feeling about a new situation. They could be reflecting your inner awareness that some essential information might be missing. Check it out. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Its important to start the new month with as clean a slate as possible. Either complete all those unfinished tasks or pass them on to others who would be more than happy to take them on. LEO (July 23 to August 22) This is a good time to cut down on expenses and tame that urge to splurge. Applying some financial discipline now could help the Big Cat ride out a possible monetary crunch later on. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Money matters are dominant this week. Recheck your accounts and make sure theyre up-to-date. Also, pay more attention to personal issues before they become major problems. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You might be tempted to employ the same tactics as your adversary, but that could backfire. Better to use the same balanced approach that has worked for you before and could again. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A changing workplace environment could stir up confusion as well as apprehension. Best to ignore the rumors and get the facts. You could find that the changes bring positive elements. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Communication is easier this week with people ready and eager to hear what you have to say. Also, check for possible technical problems before you start your new project. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Aspects favor change for the usually traditional Goat. Opening your mind to possibilities you had ignored could lead you to make decisions you once considered improbable. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Making personal as well as professional adjustments to changing conditions might be easier with more information explaining the hows and whys of the situations in question. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) With a growing tide of positive reactions to buoy your confidence, this could be the right time to put the finishing touches to your new project and get it well and truly launched. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a gift for setting an example of quiet, calm reasoning in the midst of chaotic conditions. On Oct. 4, 1937, legendary blues singer Bessie Smith is buried near Philadelphia. Smith was killed a few days earlier when the old Packard she was driving hit a parked truck near Coahoma, Mississippi. In 1923, Smith had released her first record, Down-Hearted Blues. On Sept. 30, 1949, after 15 months and more than 250,000 flights, the Berlin Airlift officially comes to an end. The daily airlift supplied tons of food and other goods. Without firing a shot, the Americans foiled the Soviet plan to hold West Berlin hostage. On Sept. 29, 1954, Willie Mays, centerfielder for the New York Giants, makes an amazing over-the-shoulder catch of a fly ball hit by Cleveland Indians first baseman Vic Wertz to rob Wertz of extra bases in Game 1 of the 1954 World Series. The catch has gone down as one of the greatest in baseball history. On Oct. 1, 1962, Johnny Carson takes over from Jack Paar as host of the latenight talk program The Tonight Show. Carson went on to host The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson for three decades, handing over the reins to Jay Leno in 1992. On Oct. 2, 1971, Maggie May becomes Rod Stewarts first No. 1 hit and tops the U.K. and U.S. pop charts simultaneously. Maggie May was a last-minute addition to the album Every Picture Tells a Story and was originally released as the B side to the single Reason to Believe. On Oct. 3, 1981, a hunger strike by Irish nationalists at the Maze Prison in Belfast in Northern Ireland is called off after seven months and 10 deaths. In the aftermath of the strike, British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher agreed to give in to several of the protesters demands, including the right to wear civilian clothing. On Oct. 5, 1990, Henry & June, starring Uma Thurman, Fred Ward and Maria de Medeiros, opens in theaters as the first film with an NC-17 rating. A month earlier, the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) had debuted NC-17 (No One Under 17 Admitted) as a replacement for the X rating. It was French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte who made the following sage observation: Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake. Given the notoriety Las Vegas enjoys as a place for quick weddings, you might be surprised to learn that, technically, it is illegal in that city for a mustachioed man to kiss a woman. In 1923, a man named Frank Hayes earned the distinction of becoming the first (and so far only) person to win a horse race posthumously. Hayes was actually a trainer rather than a jockey, and he was riding a 20-1 underdog named Sweet Kiss. It seems that Hayes suffered a heart attack in the midst of the race, but his body stayed in the saddle while Sweet Kiss beat the odds to cross the finish line first. For the rest of her life, the horse he rode was nicknamed Sweet Kiss of Death. In his spare time, Jim Cummings, a successful voice actor, calls sick children in hospital wards and talks to them as some of his most famous characters, including Winnie the Pooh and Tigger. Some state names have come to the English language through roundabout routes. Take Alaska, for example. The state name comes from the Aleut word alaxsxaq, which in turn comes from the Russian meaning the object toward which the action of the sea is directed. Those who study such things say that even fish can have distinct personalities. Within a single species, scientists have observed that some fish are quite adventurous, willing to go to great lengths to obtain food or a mate, while others are much more timid, eschewing daring feats altogether. If a man does his best, what else is there? -General George S. Patton THIS WEEK IN HISTORY THOUGHT FOR THE DAY STRANGE BUT TRUE
