This event was founded in 2012 after SFRD Chief Danny Duncan asked a question during The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museums annual Celebrity Island Dinner fundraiser, How can we get the Mobile Mammo motorcoach to Fire Station #1? Mary Bondurant, a Sanibel resident, realtor and breast cancer survivor, responded that she would call and see if she could get something set up for the month of October. Following two successful Pink Out campaigns, Bondurant is even more excited about the prospects for this years event. Our focus is going to be a celebration for survivors of all cancers, she explained. And its also about giving to the people in this community who need it most.

3 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 3, 2014 Shell Of The WeekSpeckled Tellinby Jos H. Leal, PhD, The BaileyMatthews National Shell Museum Science Director & CuratorThe speckled tellin, Tellinella listeri (Rding, 1798), is one of the local species living off the Gulf beaches of Southwest Florida. Measuring about two inches, the elegant, elongate shell, with its tent-like and zig-zag markings and subtle maroon and brown shades, is one of the most attractive bivalves in our area. Tellins have different left and right valves; use your imagination to envision this bivalve shell as a fish, with the posterior (pointed) end as the fish tail. Tellins would be fishes with flexed, or bent tails. These bent shells reflect their life habit of burrowing horizontally, laying flat deep in the sand, with the posterior end (the tail) bent up. Learn more about the speckled tellin at http://shellmuseum.org/shells/ shelldetails.cfm?id=243 Shell Museum Events Live Tank Demonstration: Learn from a marine naturalist as you watch a fighting conch use its foot for locomotion, spy a lightning whelk slam its trap door shut for protection, or witness scallops zip across the tank with their jet propulsion skills.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 3, 20146 Reading Is An Important Tool For YoungstersReading with students is a developmental interaction that the Childrens Education Center of the Islands takes seriously. The American Academy of Pediatrics advises parents to start reading to children from infancy. The point of the recommendation is to start positive interactions with books early in a childs life. Reading, talking, singing and rhyming are all interactions that are key to a childs neurodevelopment. Keeping the interactions fun and engaging for children will help hold their interest. There is no specific time recommendation; the child will signal when they are ready to move on to another activity. The Childrens Center of the Islands is a non-profit preschool offering full time and part time classes for children ages 2 to 5. It offers Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Monday through Friday for free. Wrap around care for VPK students is offered as well. Applications are accepted year-round. For more information, call 472-4538.

7 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 3, 2014 CROW Case Of The Week: An Important Patientby Patricia MolloyLee County has long been a popular tourist destination. Henry Ford and Thomas Edison made their winter homes in Fort Myers and Anne Morrow Lindbergs popular book, Gift from the Sea, was inspired by her time on Captiva. But long before humans discovered the beauty of the Gulf Coast, wild birds have traveled here during yearly seasonal trips to escape colder climates. Last week, a royal tern patient #2672 was admitted to CROW after being found on a local beach. The medium-size seabird was unable to stand. He came in very down and depressed. He also has a wing droop, stated Dr. Brittany Stevens, DVM intern. While giving him supportive care fluids, nutrient-rich foods and plenty of cage rest for several days, the tern showed signs of improvement. Hes better. Hes standing and looking brighter. Radiographs are normal, and at intake, his bloodwork looked OK, so were not sure what is causing the wing droop, said Dr. Brittany. For right now, he will continue receiving therapy. The cause of the birds medical issues may still be a bit of a mystery at this early stage, but its history is not. During the initial exam, a band was clearly visible on its right leg. When we got him in, we wrote down the number (on the band) and called the agency that the band is from, explained Missy Fox, CVT, veterinary assistant. Hes part of the migratory bird study. They told us that hes 10 years old and from Maryland. Every year, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Canadian Wildlife Service recruit private citizens, researchers and ornithological institutions to assist with banding approximately one million migratory birds in North America: 300,000 game birds and 700,000 nongame birds. The data that is collected is co-managed by the Bird Banding Laboratory (BBL) of the U.S. Geological Survey and the Banding Office of the Canadian Wildlife Service in an effort to monitor population trends of migratory birds on the continent. Thanks to wildlife hospitals like CROW, when a banded bird is located and its medical status reported to the BBL, that individuals location and history are updated. This gives researchers a detailed look into the daily lives of the migratory birds in their study and allows them to recognize disease trends in wildlife that have the potential to affect human populations. As long as this special patient continues to show signs of recovery, CROW will administer treatment and keep U.S. officials abreast of its progress. With time and continued medical care, the royal tern will hopefully be released to resume its significant role in the study. 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. This royal tern, patient #2672, is a 10-year-old bird that is visiting the area from Maryland. CROW discovered its well-documented history from the band on its right leg and its role in an important migratory bird study. 2163 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel Island, Fl 33957 Ph: 239.472.0606 www.SanibelIslandCow.com 3 95 7 P P h h: 2 2 3 39 4 72 0 60 6 w ww S an ib el Is la nd Co w co m Tropical Outdoor Patio Seating Get Crabby At The Cow Get Crabby At The Cow Get Crabby At The Cow Get Crabby At The Cow with our Famous Stone Crabs1/2 lb & 1 lb. quantities Appetizers & Full Dinners Best Prices On The Planet Fun "new" Moo Wear for all ages Fun "new" Moo Wear for all ages w w Always Fresh ...Always Fun! s s Always Fresh ...Always!

The club functions with two boards; club board of directors that oversees the club workings, both administrative and fundraising, and the Rotary Trust Fund Board that oversees our club endowment fund managed by Rotary International Trust Foundation and the distribution of funds received from fundraising activities and special projects. Fundraising monies are generally deposited directly into the board bank account and then transferred to the trust fund account. The trust fund board then has the responsibility of managing how the funds are distributed. The club receives a large number of requests from non-profits and worthy organizations for funding of special projects. Our eight fund board trustees (the majority currently are pastpresidents of the club) meet regularly to review these requests and decidedly look for projects that help communities locally and globally to make a contribution to the health and well-being of women and children, literacy and education, the health of the environment/water, promoting peace, and disease prevention. Rotarys most successful and sustainable projects and activities tend to fall within these areas. Beyond that, trust members will consider other worthy projects that they believe will benefit the communities that they serve. Last year, the Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Trust supported over 40 different projects with grants of $180 to $6,000. From time to time, a review of how the trust is processing these requests is made to redesign the request form and clarify how the requests should be presented to the trust board. The finding from the trust is that the forms are pretty much straightforward and can be found on the clubs website at www.sanibelrotary.org under Charitable Grants or through any Sanibel-Captiva Rotary member. The request will be assigned a club member to guide the request through the process from correct information on the form to final report back to Rotary on completion of project. A new emphasis will now be on the completion report; no completion report within specified time period, no consideration for additional requests. The trust board has also made a determination that this Rotary year July 1, 2014 to July 1, 2015 it will try and maintain a 50/50 split between local and global projects. A proposed budget for the year has been established with line items for our college scholarships, some multi-year commitments, designated funds established and using past giving request figures as budget elements. There is flexibility within the budget and, as the year unfolds, new requests will be considered and determinations will be made by our Sanibel-Captiva Trust Fund Board members. If any non-profit or organization has a project they need funding for, review the guidelines for grants mentioned in the third paragraph, go to our website, fill out the form and submit. If that is not possible, email Rotarian Lee Almas at lawoodman222@embarqmail and he will get you a copy of the form to you. All requests are discussed by the Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club Board with their recommendations are given to the Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Trust Board, where all grant submissions are reviewed and voted on. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets at 7 a.m. every Friday at The Dunes Golf and Tennis Club, 949 Sand Castle Road. If you have any questions regarding Rotary, e-mail President Scot Congress at email@example.com. The Community House Welcomes New ResidentsAll new residents and part-time residents of the island are invited to The Community House for coffee and more on the second Wednesday of each month, November through April. This informal get-together will give you an overview of various non-profits, clubs and civic organizations on the island as well as information to assist you in becoming part of the fabric of our community. Become involved in civic opportunities, clubs of the island and more. Long-term residents looking to spice up their volunteer time may also be interested in attending. Currently, the Sanibel Community Association is asking non-profits, civic organizations, clubs, businesses and interested parties who wish to provide new homeowner coupons or information to forward an example or note to Teresa@ sanibelcommunityhouse.net, or drop by The Community House for a conversation.

9 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 3, 2014 Erosion Solutionssubmitted by Ken and Kate Gooderham, ASBPA executive directorsWhen running through the list of solutions for coastal erosion problems, one item always needs to be retreat the willful abandonment of the coast to the forces of nature causing the erosional issues. It needs to be on the table with all the other engineering and management approaches because, frankly, you cannot eliminate any choice from consideration if you are trying to be a good coastal steward. However, contrary to the strongly held views of a very small but very vocal coastal minority, retreat cannot be the only answer... and heres why. Retreat is not always: Cost-free, but few of its proponents are willing to talk about the economic consequences of abandonment. These consequences cover the loss of revenue via property taxes, tourism taxes and sales taxes currently being generated, which would not be replaced if the coast were abandoned. It also means the literal cost of retreat taking away all the things now along the shoreline to really allow nature to take its course. Environmentally sound. Due to legal restrictions on municipalities ability to condemn and remove structures, retreat often leads to dilapidated buildings and their associated infrastructure (electric, water, sewage/septic) on the active beach. Compare this scenario to the hundreds of restored beach/dune systems created by nourishment projects all over the U.S. Realistic. People clearly want to live and play along the coast. Where has population growth been highest? Along the coast. Where is economic activity the strongest? Along the coast. When people are given a choice where they want to live, where do they go? Along the coast. To think youre going to change that behavior is folly. Politically viable. Not when a majority of your populace lives near the shoreline. Again, when more than 55 percent of the U.S. population is on or near a coastal area, any smart politician is going to work to protect the interests of that bloc whenever possible. Thats just pragmatism and those interests usually dont include the idea of retreat. Legally viable. Particularly in places where failure to protect private property carries a considerable cost to government. Many coastal management programs came into being because the alternative was to allow each property to do whatever they wanted (or needed) to do to protect an eroding shoreline. And they have that right by the law of the land in fact, in many states anything the government does that takes away value from a property can be subject to a lawsuit to require that government to pay the property owner for that loss of value. So the millions governments spend in coastal protection is cheap compared to the billions they might have to pay to compensate owners for a taking and thats not even imagining a scenario where all that private land would be bought and turned into public property that would be left to the waves to decide its fate. Desirable. Coastal retreat would undermine one of our countrys biggest industries tourism. Studies have documented that U.S. beaches generate billions of day visits and trillions in revenues -contributions which would be severely reduced if retreat was the norm and the coastal infrastructure necessary for a viable tourism economy was dismantled. Yes, the beaches would still be there post-retreat but peoples ability to get to them would be severely diminished, and many of those tourism and travel dollars would simply go to places where one could easily get to the beach. If that meant another country, thats a huge hole in the U.S. economy where tourism is the third largest contributor. Necessary on many coastlines, because viable and affordable management is possible. By encouraging soft protection measures such as more sand and coastal marshes, combined with sane coastal building policies and preserving or restoring natural coastal elements, it is possible to achieve an equilibrium between human desires and natural forces in a majority of locations, without having to abandon the coast altogether. Going to stop coastal management, dredging and other activities its proponents find so abhorrent. Inlets and channels will need to be maintained, harbors and waterways will need to be navigable and, unless every piece of structure and infrastructure is removed, coastlines will still need to be managed. This is not to argue that coastal retreat should never be considered. As we said before, it needs to be part of any list of options when coastal problems are being analyzed. There are places where retreat is likely the best solution, where due to geologic and hydrologic forces the best answer is to remove (or not rebuild) structures and infrastructure rather than spend more money and material protecting things that just should not be there any more. But when so-called experts routinely push retreat as the only solution to coastal problems, discounting all the other viable options and even denying reality itself well, they may just be more interested in provocation than in problemsolving. Thats simply not sound coastal management or policy.

A fundraising raffle will also takeplace.According to the Radiology Regional Center, one-third of breast cancer deaths each year could be prevented through early detection. Approximately one out of every eight women develops breast cancer during the course of her lifetime, and breast cancer ranks second as the cause of cancer deaths in American women, claiming more than 40,000 lives annually.The three keys to early detection, recommended by the American Cancer Society, include: Practice regular breast self exams (women 20 years and older) Clinical evaluation of the breast by a physician: Every three years (women 20 to 40 years old) Every year (women 40 years and older) Annual mammogram beginning at age 40, unless clinically indicated sooner Ive walked this journey, and early detection is the key, added Bondurant. A mammogram saved my life, and if I can help somebody else out by doing this, thats the greatest reward I could wish for.To make an appointment for a mammogram during Pink Out Sanibel & Captiva, call 936-2316.

11 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 3, 2014 Students Pray For Their SchoolOn September 24, students around the country were encouraged to gather around their schools flagpoles to pray for their school, their city, their state, their country, and their world. Several students gathered at The Sanibel School last Wednesday morning before school started for prayer and refreshments to participate in See You At The Pole. See You At The Pole is a global movement of prayer which is student-initiated, student-organized and student-led. It revolves around students praying together on the fourth Wednesday in September, usually before school and usually at the schools flag pole. It involves students in elementary schools, middle/junior high schools, high schools and colleges/universities across the globe. Adults often pray in support of the students on campus by gathering nearby, at their places of work or worship, or at city halls. This was a great opportunity for students to gather together as a group on their school campus to pray, said Pastor Kevin Schafer, the youth pastor from Sanibel Community Church. It was encouraging to see a good-sized group come out before school to pray to our King.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 3, 201414 Wildlife Photography Exhibit At DingJN Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge Visitor & Education Center is presenting a free Wildlife Photography Exhibit by Al Hoffacker from now until October 31. All photos presented depict only native wildlife from our local estuaries, freshwater wetlands and the Florida Everglades. The photos are strictly the images as seen through the lens of the camera by the photographer. Come meet the wildlife photographer at the refuges Visitor Center on Saturday, October 11 from 1 to 3 p.m. in Auditorium B, and again on Tuesday, October 14 from 1 to 3 p.m. This exhibit gives visitors a real sense of wildlife in South Florida, and we are so excited to have his photos on display said Birgie Miller, executive director of the Ding Darling Wildlife Society. Currently, Hoffackers work is being used by the Ding Darling Wildlife Society, JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, Discover Nature Apps, Pelican Island National Wildlife Rookery, Lee County Conservation 20/20 Land Stewardship, Charlotte Harbor National Estuaries Program and educational/interpretive programs throughout the state and country. For more information, contact Cookie Douglas at email@example.com, Al Hoffacker at half-crackerphoto.com or the Ding Darling Wildlife Society. Al Hoffacker Ding Darling Welcomes New InternsThe Ding Darling Wildlife SocietyFriends of the Refuge (DDWS) continues its support of the refuge and DDWS internship programs this fall with the hiring of two new interns, who will work for both the refuge and its friends group. Kasey Robb and Dana Desousa clocked in for service earlier this month. Robb, a geology graduate from Binghamton University in New York State, minored in biology and graduated in December 2013. She will be assisting DDWS staff with its outreach and fundraising missions. I have had so much fun these last two weeks exploring the island and the refuge, she said. Its gorgeous here and completely different from Upstate New York, where I grew up. Desousa hails from Elmsford, New York, where she was working as a teaching assistant for a kindergarten class. A graduate from the University of Delaware, she has a bachelors degree in wildlife conservation. I love living on an island, and working at the refuge has already provided me with so many new and exciting experiences, said Desousa. And everyone is so kind. She will be helping out with Ding Darling Days planning and running the Silver Scavenger Hunt throughout that week, October 19 to 25. DDWS supports refuge internship programs by paying living stipends for numerous interns each year to supplement staff cutbacks due to federal budget constraints. We seriously could not operate without the help from the societys intern support, said Toni Westland, refuge supervisory ranger. Our staff has been cut back dramatically in the past few years. If not for our intern program, we would be faced with closing the refuge a couple of days each week.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 3, 201416 Time For Schooling Redsby Capt. Matt MitchellSchools of shallow water redfish were found all over the sound this week. These schools of reds ranged in size from 20 fish up to hundreds of fish. Mid-day low water, bright sunshine and light winds all combined for near perfect conditions for locating and sight fishing these hard fighting over-sized redfish. Finding these redfish sometimes requires a lot of looking but other times, they just pop up almost surprising you. The best chance for locating these schools happens within an hour or so of low tide. Running the edges of big grass flats is a good place to start. I often spot these fish as they cross or push across a super shallow flat as they make their way towards deeper holes and channels. Once these reds hit the deeper water, you quickly lose sight of them and your opportunity on that school is gone. Schools of hungry reds this week could be found all over the flats and channel edges, basically throughout the sound. Areas I located them were from Panther Key to Wood Key, Umbrella Key up on the very western tip of Bokeelia and the flats of Cayo Costa. These are all large areas of water, really the only way to find these fish is to put in your time and keep your eyes open; these schools are constantly moving although some flats are just more productive than others. Once located, this is crazy fast paced action with often every rod on the boat bent at the same time. At first glance, redfish schools from a distance dont really look that much different than a school of mullet. Once you get a little closer though you will see a much larger push of water and often the tell tale copper color of these fish. These redfish are basically stampeding across the shallow water feeding on everything in their way. Look for the tell-tale signs of big V-shaped wakes, large humps of disturbed water and the bait out ahead of the school skipping as it tries to get away. Once you spot a school, try to work out the direction these fish are moving in so you can get the boat within casting range. These schools often move very quickly, only giving you so many shots at them before they pass by. Letting them come to you rather than running right up into them is always a more productive way to go. A trolling motor or push pole can work for this, although they sometimes move so fast that you might need to crank up the big motor and run way out around and ahead of them before shutting down. Hopefully, you get a few shots at them before they pass by. Being rigged and ready when these schools show themselves is a major factor in catching them. These redfish will feed on basically any bait put out in front of them; they have a pack mentality, eating everything they can. I have rods rigged both for bait with floats and free lined, then long casting weedless artificials. If you can get the boat stationary and let the fish come to you, then a bait is the way to go. Often though, the boat is drifting or moving slowly on the trolling motor in super shallow grass when you get your shots at the school. For this, a 1/2-ounce weedless spoon is hard to beat. Not only will the spoon come through the shallow grass without getting hung up, it can be cast a long way even directly into the wind. When the school is out of range for the bait rods, the spoon will often give you a few more shots. This time of year, I dont go anywhere without a few Johnson silver minnow spoons rigged up and ready to go as you never know when that school of reds will pop up and make your day. Ninety nine percent of the time, if youre fumbling around to get rigged, you have already missed your chance.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. If you have comments or questions email firstname.lastname@example.org.

17 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 3, 2014 Plant SmartMarsh Gentianby Gerri ReavesMarsh gentian (Eustoma exaltatum) is a native wildflower with cupped flowers of rosy purple, lavender or sometimes white. Its habitats include hammocks, marshes, coastal sand dunes and disturbed areas of South Florida and the Keys. A close relative of the famous Texas bluebell, it is also called catchfly prairiegentian and seaside gentian. It blooms throughout the year, but more profusely winter through summer. The five-lobed flowers measure up to three inches in diameter and attract pollinators. Bright yellow stamens contrast with the dark purple throat. Silver-green leaves clasp the stems in opposite pairs. Elongated, oval and fleshy, they have pointed tips and are about two inches long. The plant reaches two to three feet tall. March gentian is a good choice for coastal landscapes, natural gardens and wildflower gardens. It has moderate tolerance for brackish water and a high tolerance for salt wind. It will survive even in poor soil, but needs some organic content to do well. It prefers full sun to light shade and consistent moisture. Propagate this annual with the seeds from the sticky capsule or with cuttings. Sources: Everglades Wildflowers by Roger L. Hammer, Florida Wild Flowers and Roadside Plants by C.

In 2013, CROWs wildlife hospital cared for 3,391 sick, injured, and orphaned animals. Of the 200 different species, 60 percent were birds, with 33 percent mammals and seven percent reptiles. CROW is not permitted to display its patients publically, so this hour-long presentation offers the next best thing: numerous candid snapshots of current and past patients, with commentary by Claudia Burns, a veteran clinic volunteer. The next CROW Picture Show will be held on Friday, October 10 at 11 a.m. in CROWs Visitor Education Center, 3883 Sanibel-Captiva Road (across from The Sanibel School). Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for teens and free for members and children 12 or under.

City Of Sanibel Vegetation CommitteeHow To Protect The Cabbage PalmThe cabbage palm (Sabal palmetto) is a stalwart native and has been described as a small ecosystem in itself. If you respect Sanibels environmental sensibility to live in harmony with our natural surroundings, that seems reason enough to protect this important palm. Notwithstanding, it is also the Florida State tree, rugged and perfectly adapted to our, sometimes harsh, barrier island environment. Why Does This Palm Deserve Our Knowledgable Care? Lets explore this small ecosystem to better understand how it supports plant, bird, insect and critter life. Brown fronds provide a unique habitat for tree frogs and bats, which are a natural mosquito control. Frizz from the fronds makes great nesting material. Flowering branches (inflorescences) provide nectar for bees and butterflies. Palm berries are sources of highly nutritious food for local birds, migratory birds and small mammals. The palm boots (leaf bases) are important habitat for other plants, including the beautiful golden polypody fern. Harsh pruning of these palms jeopardizes all these habitat benefits and can endanger the health, and even the life of the palm. Its green fronds are the cabbage palms source of nutrients. Cutting healthy green fronds stunts growth, invites disease and reduces the palms natural resilience to high winds. Pruning of protective green fronds makes the palms cold-sensitive heart susceptible to frosts. An over-pruned palm (hurricane cut) leaves the heart of the palm totally unprotected in strong winds. Damage to the heart can result in the death of the palm. An over-pruned palm can develop a bottleneck trunk, sometimes referred to as penciling. In high winds and hurricanes, this stressed and weakened point can cause the palm to break off and die. Work boots with climbing spikes cause wounds in the trunk, leaving the palm prone to disease. You can make a difference. Heres how. Do not remove green fronds. Save money. Say no to landscapers who want to over-prune, especially green fronds. Exclude annual harsh-pruning from your landscape contract. Though not necessary, it is acceptable to prune brown and yellow fronds hanging below an imaginary horizon line (think like a clock, 9 to 3). Say no to hurricane cuts. The cabbage palm is naturally wind resistant. If you are hoping to protect your palms during hurricane season, this drastic pruning, which leaves them vulnerable, is the worst thing you could do. Help spread the facts. Having a better understanding of the cabbage palms use by our plants and wildlife, enables us to see its natural assets as things of great value, and to many, beauty. Enjoy it! You can learn more about protecting native vegetation on Sanibel by visiting the Natural Resources Department page at www.mysanibel.com. For questions about vegetation on Sanibel or to request a site visit, contact the City of Sanibel Natural Resources Department at 472-3700.The Natural Resources Department section of the citys website, www.mysanibel. com, offers information and photos of native plants, a listing of licensed contractors, Sanibels vegetation standards and codes, and the Environmental Reference Handbook prepared by the citys vegetation committee. The vegetation committee also offers free native plant tours of the grounds at city hall at 10 a.m. on the second Wednesday and fourth Saturday of the month from November to April.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 3, 201422 Sanibel Sea School Plans Holiday Campsubmitted by Nicole FinnicumThe holidays are quickly approaching and Sanibel Sea School is excited to announce our 2014 Holiday Camp schedule. Living in sunny, subtropical Florida, its hard to imagine what the faraway icy regions of our ocean must be like. At this years Holiday Camp, our weeks will be called Arctic and Antarctic, and well spend our days celebrating marine life at low temperatures. With this new perspective, maybe winter surfing wont seem so cold! Arctic Week December 22 to 26 (1/2 day December 24, no camp December 25) 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The word Arctic comes from the Greek arktikos, meaning bear, and it just so happens that one of the Arctics most lovable marine mammals is just that the polar bear. Well take a closer look at the lifestyle of polar bears and other northern inhabitants ranging from the tiniest phytoplankton all the way up to walruses and Greenland sharks. During Arctic Week we will also investigate how humans survive in such chilly climates, and of course well do plenty of surfing, macrame-making, and ocean carol singing. Antarctic Week December 29 to January 2 (1/2 day December 31) 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Antarctic is without bears, but theres no shortage of other interesting organisms to explore. From penguins, seals and whales down to tinier sea stars, isopods and sponges, well celebrate a whole collection of quirky and amazing animals this week. Well also talk about icebergs and life at McMurdo Station, the U.S. research station in Antarctica. And of course it wouldnt be camp without surfing, macrame-making, and our annual New Years tradition of releasing our worries out to sea. Registration opens online (www. sanibelseaschool.org) at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, October 15. The cost of camp will be $290 per camper and $145 for Counselors In Training (CITs), with no registration fee. Camp is open to children ages 6 to 13 and our CIT program is open to ages 13 to 15. The counselors at Sanibel Sea School are already excited for our imaginary journey to the icy waters of the Arctic and Antarctic we hope your children join us for an adventure of a lifetime this December!

The annual budget funds the agencys core flood control and water supply missions as well as its continued progress to restore and protect the South Florida ecosystem. This budget allows us to continue operating and refurbishing the regional water control system and puts state funding to work to benefit our states natural areas, including the Kissimmee River, Lake Okeechobee, coastal estuaries and the Everglades, said SFWMD Governing Board Chairman Daniel OKeefe. With our agency-wide commitment to efficient operations, District millage rates have been reduced for the fourth year in a row. Nearly 80 percent of the Districts FY2015 budget is dedicated to flood protection efforts and natural systems restoration: $202.2 million to operate and maintain South Floridas regional flood control system and other associated works, including $52.4 million toward refurbishment of the primary network of canals, levees, structures and pump stations. $362.5 million to build projects and implement programs to help restore Americas Everglades from the Kissimmee headwaters to Florida Bay.

In total, the FY2015 approved spending plan includes $71.4 million to implement the next phases of Governor Scotts Restoration Strategies plan for improving the quality of water flowing into Americas Everglades. In 2015, these funds will be used to: Continue construction on two Flow Equalization Basins. Increase existing stormwater treatment area capacity. Construct additional conveyance features. Continue implementation of the Science Plan. Plan, design and initiate construction on the Mecca shallow impoundment and the Lainhart and Masten dams in the Loxahatchee watershed. Implement additional source control activities.

Water quality treatment and storage projects in the Caloosahatchee watershed, including initial work on the C-43 Reservoir to provide additional interim storage on the project site. Continued construction on the Kissimmee River restoration project and Headwaters revitalization, which will create more upstream storage. Expansion of the districts Dispersed Water Management program to hold more water on public and private lands. Another $36.6 million is dedicated to other key environmental projects designed to reestablish more natural water flows, including: Cost-sharing construction of the north detention area for the C-111 South Dade project with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Picayune Strand Restoration manatee mitigation construction, acquisition and operational testing/monitoring of the Merritt and Faka Union pump stations. The districts annual budget is funded by a combination of ad valorem (property) taxes and other revenues such as state appropriations, federal and local sources, balances, fees, investment earnings and agricultural privilege taxes. For FY2015, $265.9 million (about 37 percent of total revenues) is provided by property taxes and $143.1 million is from accumulated ad valorem reserves.The approved millage rates for FY2015 represent $38.42 per $100,000 of taxable value in 15 of the districts 16 counties (the Okeechobee Basin).

Now, he has authored a new book about the only female member of The Highwaymen, Mary Ann Carroll. The book begins with marvelous narrative about The Highwaymen and what it was like for black aspiring artists, the majority from Fort Pierce, Florida who became a new genre of landscape painters whose carefree, fast-painting imagery is sought after and treasured today. It is believed that these painters created nearly 250,000 paintings, but its difficult to know how many survived because they often changed hands, were placed in storage or lost. The artists drove to towns and cities along the coastline selling their works wherever there were people. For Carroll, it was a way to support her seven children. People bought her paintings because they appealed to them. She believes that the scene and color helped sell the paintings. People bought for themselves when something struck a nerve. The paintings were affordable and original Florida art. In the early 1960s, Carroll became one of the nuclear members of the group of artists called The Highwaymen. Today, one of her paintings hangs in the White House. She presented it to Michelle Obama at the First Ladys Luncheon in 2011 when she was guest of honor for her achievements made in spite of discrimination. In the book, Monroe describes the paintings as an experience. A viewer can relate because they are accessible, and even flawed. These unusual paintings capture, with minimal effort, the sense of Florida in its rawest, if not most sensual, form. Three fourths of this magnificent book are filled with colorful photos of Carrolls work. You will be amazed as you look at them. You will also be amazed as you read this never-before-told story of a black female artists hard fought journey to provide for her family while also making a name for herself in a mans world. Mary Ann Carroll: First Lady of The Highwaymen is available in book stores and online. Mary Ann Carroll painting

The meeting is free and open to the public. The discussion begins at 2 p.m. in the librarys Meeting Room 4, located across from the elevator on the ground floor. Edie Gleason will facilitate the meeting. In Livelys 2011 book, the mugging of a retired schoolteacher on a London street has unexpected repercussions for her friends and neighbors when it inadvertently reveals an illicit love affair, leads to a business partnership, and helps an immigrant to reinvent his life. In a New York Times book review of How It All Began, Michiko Kakutani wrote, Here, one of our most talented writers has written an elegant, witty work of fiction, deceptively simple, emotionally and intellectually penetrating, the kind of novel that brings a plot to satisfying closure but whose questions linger long afterward in the readers mind. Discussion of How It All Began begins promptly at 2 p.m. on October 22. While it is preferable to come having previously read the book, all are welcome. The books featured for the Sanibel Public Library book group discussions are available hardcopy as well as in downloadable format. Hardcopy books are located in the library near the reference desk.

31 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 3, 2014 Poets Corner selected by Tanya HochschildSurvival Of The Fittestby Tanya HochschildDarwin sailed to the Galapagos, legendary land in lapis, linked the chain of life which clung in the balance, called his idea: origin of the species. Selected into the life boat, he wrote, Those who adapt. Naturally, we selected each other. To inhabit your world I needed like the flightless cormorant, to clip my wings. To inhabit my world you needed, like a Galapagos sea lion, stones to grind in your stomach to digest life with a wife. Both born under fire signs, we evolved from volcanic eruptions. You learned, like the Galapagos dove to coo your appreciation, I learned not to be your albatross on Saturday rugby afternoons Like Sally Lightfoot crabs we scampered through years of precious life, found footholds on earth nurtured our young, comical as boobies with blue-flippered feet, they squeaked and danced, appealing to us to keep feeding them. Two ancients, once with dominant genes, now recessive, slow as tortoises in ill-fitting leather coats, We bubble, crawl, grip, glare and stare live in harmony, going forward. Tanya Hochschild is member of a Sanibel Writers Group, has participated in Artpoems and Writers Reads on the island, and had two books published. We invite submissions from local poets. Anyone interested may submit their work via email to tutsie@ comcast.net. Each week, individual work will be showcased. Superior InteriorsFabulous Flooringby Jeanie TinchFloors are the second largest and broadest expanse of color in a room the first being walls. They are also the most permanent feature, replaced less easily and less often than wall treatments or even upholstered furniture. Purchase and installation costs are substantial, so its important to select floors with an eye to the future. For many reasons, its best to consider investing in the best quality possible for your budget. That doesnt necessarily mean buying the most expensive flooring. In estimating what you are willing to invest, consider the lifespan of your floor covering. This will help give you a truer picture of cost and what is truly the most economical for you, your budget, and your lifestyle. And, by all means, consider using the services of a professional interior decorator to assist you in this important buying decision. Modern technology has made flooring more attractive, varied and practical. Such natural materials as wood, marble, stone, slate, clay tile and wool are still high in initial cost, but may not be in the long run because of their durability. Manmade flooring materials such as vinyl and carpets of synthetic fibers come in price ranges able to fit almost any reasonable budget.

Life Drawing Class ResumesSanibel artist Carol Rosenberg will facilitate non-instructed Life Drawing beginning October 3 though May at BIG ARTS. This popular series of weekly classes, one of the first visual arts classes offered locally several years ago, was initially taught by nowretired college art instructor Bob York. He was a member of the small group of island residents with interests and backgrounds in the visual, performing and musical arts that many years ago formed the Barrier Island Group for the Arts, now known as BIG ARTS. Life Drawing has a long history in Europe and is offered in colleges and art centers throughout the United States as a basic way to develop drawing skills using the various poses of the human form as subject. Figurative interpretation can be representational or expressive depending on the artists techniques and materials used such as pen, pencil, charcoal, pastel, etc. The models poses vary from five minutes to one hour and easels are provided. Rosenberg has been participating in BIG ARTS Life Drawing for over 25 years and finds that the supportive atmosphere, including those who are new to drawing as well as the more experienced artists, is most encouraging and provides an opportunity for expanding art appreciation and creativity.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 3, 201438 Baseball Fans Nationwide Will Miss Derek Jeter And Paul Konerko Two Class Actsby Ed FrankBaseballs 2014 regular season has ended, and with it the careers of two superstars who lifted the image of Americas pastime during the trouble-plagued era of steroids. Derek Jeter and Paul Konerko have been a credit to the game and left with their heads held high because they played the game the way it should be played, and not once were ever involved in controversy. Jeter, a sure-fire first-ballot Hall of Famer, played his entire 20-year Major League career as a New York Yankee. And the quiet, unassuming Konerko was a member of the Chicago White Sox for nearly all of his 16 years on the diamond. If you saw Jeters final game in Yankee Stadium last Thursday, you saw a game you will likely remember for years. With the scored tied in the bottom of the ninth and a runner on second base, the veteran shortstop slapped the first pitch into right field to drive in the winning run. Interviewed in the dugout a few innings before, Yankee manager Joe Girardi said a walk-off hit by Jeter would be a fitting tribute to his great career. And thats exactly what he did. Jeter ended his career last Sunday at Bostons Fenway Park, where he received a thunderous tribute from the Red Sox faithful when he departed the game after singling in the third inning. Despite the intense Yankee-Red Sox rivalry over the years, Red Sox Nation and all of baseball appreciated what Jeter has meant to the game for the last two decades. Just look at some of his amazing stats: Five World Series rings; 158 postseason appearances; sixth on the career hit list, far ahead of any other Yankee; one of only two players in baseball history to compile 3,465 hits, 250 home runs, 300 stolen bases and 1,200 RBIs. The other is Willie Mays. And zero zero ejections in 20 years as Major League player. Konerko may not be as well-known as Jeter, but to White Sox fans, he was the face of the team for 16 years quiet, unassuming but fiercely competitive. His 432 home runs as a White Sox slugger are second only to Hall of Famer Frank Thomas. He is first in team total bases and only Luke Appling made more appearances in a White Sox uniform. A highlight of his career was the grand slam home run he belted in the 2005 World Series that propelled the White Sox to their first Series title since 1917. In the long history of baseball, some might argue that there have been better players than Jeter and Konerko. But there have been few that have had such distinguished careers. We will miss them.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 3, 201440 Theres an old Yiddish phrase Un kinder aus yachsen mit bupkes ist immer bupkis! (a child from a distinguished heritage with nothing is still nothing). In other words, it doesnt matter how important or distinguished someones lineage is if each generation doesnt otherwise live up to the familys standards. I think about that phrase from time to time when I hear complaints about adult children who havent lived up to their parents expectations in one way or another. Perhaps they spend too much money relative to what they earn, or they bounce from job to job without advancing their career, or they fail to finish their education. Oftentimes the complaining parents are quite successful. They might be doctors, lawyers, engineers, business owners or community leaders. Most of the time the patriarch and matriarch themselves arose from modest backgrounds and had to earn and scrape for everything they now enjoy. Their children, on the other hand, dont have the same frame of reference. The parents wanted their children to have it much easier than they had, so the childrens lives were easier. The children had more handed to them they didnt have to work and earn for everything that they have. So is it any surprise that the children dont have the same drive and ambition that their parents had? Which leads me to todays estate planning lesson. Its not uncommon to hear a client say that they dont want the inheritance to take their childrens drive and ambition away. A trust might be built that provides supplemental income but cannot be used for sole support. These are all good ideas. But isnt it a little too late to teach these lessons through a will or trust? The average life span for someone who is currently 60-something years old is 86. In other words, todays 60-year-old can expect to live another 26 years all things being equal. If the children are 30 years younger, then they will become trust beneficiaries in their fifties or maybe even their 60s. Will an incentive or supplemental needs trust really work to change habits that have been ingrained for several decades by that point? Somehow, the lessons and values that made the parents what they are need to be ingrained at a much earlier age. Anyone with any means struggles with these issues myself included. I grew up in a very modest setting, and have worked to earn my own way from a very early age. While I didnt want my own children to have to work like I did, somewhere theres a line that one doesnt want to cross. I think that it is certainly more difficult today than it was a generation or two ago. Smart phones, the Internet, Netflix and many other modern conveniences tend to distract us from having important family dinner discussions. Travel soccer teams take away time that would otherwise be spent learning morals and values in synagogue or at church. Two-income households mean that both mom and dad are exhausted at the end of the day and dont have the stamina to oversee homework or to attend school functions. Somehow, we all must work to change this dynamic. This isnt to say that all children are on the wrong path and will become irresponsible spendthrifts later in life. I actually believe quite the contrary. There are a lot of good kids out there who work hard to earn good grades and are quite ambitious. But there are also many who dont appreciate what their parents have built for them, and what their parents had to sacrifice to get the family where it currently is. And that, my friends, is not necessarily the kids fault. Its all of ours. Hopefully the pendulum will swing back as many realize whats happening. Until then, Im afraid there will be many more estate planning discussions centering on how to protect our children from themselves when they inherit the assets that took so long and hard to earn.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 3, 201442 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 adult daughter has recently asked me for a loan of several thousands of dollars, because she says she needs a surgical procedure. On further questioning, I find she wants to have a breast enlargement procedure. She is convinced that her whole life will change, she will be so much happier and it is the most important thing on her mind right now. She has saved about half the amount and now wants a loan to get it done sooner rather than later. What do you think about my daughters request? Alicia Dear Alicia, Society puts great strain on females and the young are very vulnerable to its messages. At this point in history boobs are in. Young girls and women are constantly under pressure to have what is in in what the society defines as female beauty. The present clothing emphasizes the breasts and there is no doubt that with a large endowment, the clothes look better. However, many females with natural endowment want a reduction as they are fed up with shoulder sores. The health risks involved should be researched and a good experienced surgeon is a must, should your daughter decide to go forward. Lizzie Dear Alicia, Right or wrong, society does define what is considered attractive in both males and females. Not meeting standards can be bothersome for some and downright shattering for others. For those that want to alter, enhance or reduce body characteristics, plastic surgery is a choice. Responsible physicians interview and counsel potential patients regarding expectations about surgery and reasons for seeking surgery. So, I do not think exploring surgical solutions to body image problems is in any way misguided. It is important to make informed choices about any medical procedures. As far as assisting your daughter with paying for her surgery, that is between you and your daughter. Pryce Lizzie and Pryces email address is email@example.com. School Smartby Shelley M.

Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAML (03-12)Ever notice when your favorite ball team misses the goal during the last inning, that fans put their hands on their forehead and open their mouths, with an utterance or thought, Oh My God? This response is instinctive to automatically calm ourselves during crisis, trauma or troubling events. The points located on the forehead directly above the pupils of the eyes, midway between the eyebrow and hairline (or where it used to be) are the main neurovascular points. These points, known as the Oh My God points, directly impact emotions, interface with the nervous system and help us calm. Our heads are covered with neurovascular points, each associated with a major emotion and each associated with an organ. So, when you are experiencing a sense of crisis, trauma or feel in overdrive, do the following: 1. Place either hand, palm against the forehead, with the fingers pointing to one side of the temple and the wrist at the other temple. The little finger should be grazing the eyebrow. 2. Place the other palm of hand on the back of the head, directly behind the hand on the forehead. Your head is now sandwiched between your two palms. 3. Take several deep breaths, in through nose and out through mouth, until you feel yourself calming. All done; now you can find a comedy show to watch instead! Have fun with your energy! Next weeks topic is EEM First Aid Help Stop or Reduce Seizure with Hook-Up. If you have a question, email Karen Semmelman at SemmEnergyCenter@ gmail.com. Learn more at www.semmelmanenergy.com.

43 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 3, 2014 Cypress Cove Resident Recalls Fighter Pilot DaysThere is a deadly quiet that envelopes the normally loud military jet. But at 73,000 feet and seconds before the F-4 Phantom prepares to plunge towards earths troposphere, the silence is often secondary to the very humbling view of the earth. So recalls effervescent Cypress Cove resident Werner Reb Rebstock about his days as a U.S. Marine Corps fighter pilot. The curvature of the earth is dramatic at that altitude. And you should see it when youre out over the ocean all you see is blue blue sky, blue water. Its a view that few people have the privilege of experiencing. That was especially true in the 1960s when as a young Marine aviator Rebstock was flying air defense missions out of Cherry Point (North Carolina) Air Station. The missions, explains Rebstock, required pilots to wear bulky pressurized suits in a plane that could climb 41,000 feet in one minute. When fully pressurized, and while flying at such altitudes, he found it very hard to move his fingers. His eyes sparkle, though, and a broad smile explodes across his expressive face as he relates such moments in his 31-year Marine Corps career. Rebstock never intended to become a military pilot. He enjoyed math and wanted to become a teacher. But it was his early National Guard experience that led him away from becoming a math teacher. If you backtrack Rebs fulfilling life, a subtle irony unfolds as he relates a memorable childhood experience growing up near one of the United States most famous aviators Charles Lindbergh. For several years, Lindy was like an uncle to Rebstock and his brother. They were often invited to the Lindberghs to play with sons Jon and Land. Lindy was really kind to his brother and him. They had grown up the sons of a German immigrant farmer. Reb fondly remembers when Lindbergh would take the boys ice skating, snow skiing and to do other outdoor activities. But Lindberghs flying was something that was hardly ever discussed. Rebstock insists that it was not Lindbergh that influenced his choice of becoming a military aviator. What would Lindbergh have thought if he knew that Reb had become a Marine piloting a jet fighter at speeds and heights that Lindbergh could have never fathomed? He certainly would have been surprised, he said. Actually, his flying career happened quite by chance. A four-year hitch with the Army National Guard led to an enlistment with the Marine Corps. And while serving as an infantry officer during his first five years of service, he became interested in the Marines F-4 aviation program. He qualified for the program and spent the next 26 years in the Marine Corps Aviation, rising to Colonel. His aviation career took him to Vietnam, where he flew 272 wartime combat missions. After the war, he was appointed to such duties as CO of the Marine Barracks at the U.S. Naval Base in Yokosuka, Japan, Pacific Fleet Headquarters in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, as an instructor at the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island and a three-year stint at The Pentagon. When asked what part of his career did he enjoy most? Working in the field, he quickly remarked. Although he retired in 1988, Rebstock still carries that Marine persona. He carries it with pride. His infectious smile, booming voice and short-cropped hair make him easily recognizable at Cypress Cove.

However, when it comes to insurance, getting a great deal may not be the greatest in the long run. Some of you may have received insurance offers that seem like the same coverage you currently have. Before you jump for joy on the savings promised, I would urge you to first sit down with a licensed insurance agent to do a true comparison of the coverage being offered to what you currently have. While the coverage limits may seem the same, the policy form of coverage being offered can be quite different. Your current coverage could be covering your home for replacement cost, whereas the competitor quote is offering only actual cash value. The Personal Liability coverage may also be quite lower than your current coverage. Experienced insurance agents know what gaps in coverage to look for and you do not want to find out about these gaps after you have a loss. Angela Larson Roehl is a local Sanibel-Captiva insurance agent with over 20 years of insurance experience, who can be reached at email@example.com. From page 38Derek Jeter And Paul KonerkoIn 13 seasons as Twins skipper, he guided the club to six American League Central Division titles, but struggled of late as his teams lost 90-plus games four straight years. He has a year left on a two-year deal he signed with the Twins last year. General Manager Terry Ryan said the team will begin the search for a new manager immediately, both internally and externally. There has been speculation that Doug Mientkiewicz, manager of the Twins Class A Fort Myers Miracle, could be in the mix for Gardenhires job. Mientkiewicz managed Fort Myers to their first Florida State League Championship this past season. Lee County Sports Complex Renamed CenturyLink Sports Complex The spring training facility of the Minnesota Twins for the past 25 years is being renamed the CenturyLink Sports Complex.

deaRPharmacistWhats In Your Morning Bowl Of Cereal?by Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Readers: Everyone is worried about heavy metals in their dental amalgams and vaccines. But what if I told you that you could be getting some in your morning bowl of cereal? Its possible according to Mike Adams, founder of the Forensic Food Lab (labs. naturalnews.com). Some metals are simply not supposed to be in your body. The symptoms of acute poisoning require immediate medical attention, whereas chronic low level exposure will cause symptoms that look like an auto-immune disorder, attention problem or neurological disease. Take a look at the startling symptoms of chronic metal exposure: Lead Fatigue, insomnia, trouble concentrating, irritability, headache, weight loss, stomach pains, low libido and high blood pressure. Without a doubt, there is always nervous system damage causing dozens of muscular and neurological problems. Disturbingly, lead contaminants have been isolated from a few baby foods and juices. Arsenic Darkening or discoloration of your skin, skin bumps (like corns or warts, termed hyperkeratosis), white lines in the fingernails (termed Mees lines) and peripheral neuropathy. Brain fog and mental status changes can occur. I recall once when my fianc was hospitalized about 20 years ago, he was tested for arsenic. His levels were 500 times higher than normal. His neurologist became alarmed and requested my urine sample, on the spot (suggesting that I had poisoned my guy!). My levels were 1,000 times higher than normal! Later on, I explained to him that he had tested our organic arsenic levels (not the poisonous inorganic sort) and that it would naturally be higher because we both ate lobster the night before. Luckily, we knew we had high levels of the nontoxic form, so we did not submit ourselves for unnecessary chelation. Cadmium Cigarette smoke contains cadmium and so does some fertilizer. Japan has had a problem with cadmium in their water supply and rice fields. Cadmium can raise blood pressure. It can cause emphysema, poor sense of smell, fatigue, osteoporosis and anemia. Mercury Permanent damage can result with this heavy metal, usually found in seafood (especially sea bass, swordfish and tuna), some pharmaceuticals, old mercury thermometers and some dental fillings. When coal is burned, mercury is released. Symptoms include mood swings, memory loss, heart arrhythmias, weakness, skin rashes, psychiatric illness and dozens of muscular or neurological symptoms. Progressive, disabling conditions may occur if mercury poisoning is not uncovered in time. While frightening, keep in mind, we are all exposed to these compounds because heavy metals now contaminate a lot of items like water, household chemicals, fertilizers, medication and food... even cereal! Most children grow up eating cereal and their little bodies start collecting the heavy metals at such a young age. When Mike Adams tested cereals, he found that Honey Bunches of Oats had the lowest level of heavy metals. Hes evaluated two dozen popular cereals by brand name, so go find out where your favorite cereal ranks labs.naturalnews. com then click on infographics at the top.

Myerslicensed insured bondedwww.jesuslawncare.com firstname.lastname@example.org My Stars FOR WEEK OF OCTOBER 6, 2014ARIES (March 21 to April 19) An upcoming trip could create some problems with your schedule unless you tie up as many loose ends as possible before you head out the door. Ask a friend or colleague to help you. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Being eager to start a new project is fine. However, moving ahead without knowing what actually will be expected of you could cause a problem down the line. Ask some questions. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Getting through some recent challenges in good shape might give you a false sense of security. Dont relax your guard. You need to be prepared for what else could happen. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Caution is still advised, even though you think youre as prepared as you need to be. Keep in mind that change is in your aspect, and you should expect the unexpected. LEO (July 23 to August 22) The Lions gift of persuasion helps you get your points across, even to some of your most negative naysayers. An old friend might seek you out for some advice. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Being sure of your convictions is fine. But leave some room for dissenting opinions. You might learn something that could help you avoid a possible problem later on. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Getting good legal advice on what your rights actually are is the first step toward resolving that pesky problem so that it doesnt re-emerge at a later date. Good luck. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Longtime relationships work well this week, whether theyre personal or professional. Its also a good time to invite new friends and colleagues into your life. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) This is a good week to do the research that will help you uncover those irrefutable facts that can back you up on your new venture when you most need it. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Change is an important factor in your aspect this week and could affect something you might have thought was immune to any sort of adjustment or alteration. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Being asked to share someones deeply personal confidence might be flattering, but accepting could be unwise. Decline gracefully but firmly. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) As wise as you are, you could still be misled by someone who seems to be sincere but might not be. Take more time to assess the situation before making any commitments. BORN THIS WEEK : You like to face challenges that others might try to avoid, and by so doing, you set an example of courage for all. On Oct. 11, 1809, explorer Meriwether Lewis dies under mysterious circumstances at Grinders Tavern in Tennessee. Most historians have concluded that Lewis death was a suicide brought on by depression over financial worries, but some believe he was murdered, possibly by the tavern owner. On Oct. 12, 1810, when Bavarian Crown Prince Louis marries, the citizens of Munich are invited to attend the festivities. The decision to repeat the festivities the next year gave rise to the tradition of the annual Oktoberfest. Today, more than 1 million gallons of beer are consumed annually at Oktoberfest. On Oct. 8, 1869, future auto inventor and mechanic Frank Duryea is born. Duryea was the first automobile driver on the American road. In 1893, his Duryea Motor Wagon made its first successful trip, 600 yards down his street in Springfield, Mass., before the transmission blew. On Oct. 7, 1913, for the first time, Henry Fords entire Michigan automobile factory is run on a continuously moving assembly line. A motor and rope pulled the chassis past workers and parts, cutting the man-hours required to complete one Model T from 12-1/2 hours to six. On Oct. 6, 1926, Yankee slugger Babe Ruth hits a record three homers against the St. Louis Cardinals in the fourth game of the World Series. In 1928, in another YanksCards World Series, Ruth tied his own record, knocking three more pitches out of the same park. On Oct. 9, 1940, during the Battle of Britain, the German Luftwaffe launches a heavy nighttime raid on London, and a bomb pierces the dome of St. Pauls Cathedral, destroying the High Altar. The cathedral had been built, destroyed and rebuilt many times over the years beginning in 604 A.D. The current cathedral dates from 1710. On Oct. 10, 1973, Spiro Agnew becomes the first U.S. vice president to resign in disgrace. He pleaded no contest to a charge of income-tax evasion in exchange for dropping charges of political corruption, which included his practice of accepting bribes even while vice president. A proverb of unknown origin states, The length of a piece of wood can only be too short on one end. A Neanderthals brain was actually larger than the brain of a modern human. Keep an eye on the weather in your part of the country, it may be a sign of things to come. An old saying goes, Much rain in October, much wind in December. A famous and oft-quoted line from Sherlock Holmes is How often have I said to you that when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth? However, author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle didnt come up with that one himself; he took it from a story by Edgar Allan Poe, another pioneer of the detective genre. Just as bears do, many frogs hibernate. A frog will burrow down into the mud at the bottom of a pond and, not being able to use its lungs to breathe, it will absorb the oxygen in the water through its skin. Everywhere you go these days, you see people carrying around bottles of water. I wonder if they realize how much money theyre spending? At $1.49 for a 9-ounce bottle of Evian, a gallon would cost $21.19. It could be worse, though. Pepto-Bismol is $123.20 a gallon. Jayne Mansfield had an interesting definition of men. She said they are creatures with two legs and eight hands. Snakes can get hiccups. Im tired of all this nonsense about beauty being only skin deep. Thats deep enough.

It will help bring back the shine. My mother swears by wrapping her feet in a vinegar-soaked rag once a week to soften calluses. She does this before her bath, and uses a pumice stone to rid her heels of hardened spots on the skin. It seems to work for her, so I thought I would pass it on! -C.D. in Colorado Peppermint is a wonderful cure for indigestion. To make a quick peppermint tea, use a rolling pin to smash three to four peppermint candies. Add them to a glass of water and microwave for a minute and a half. Stir to melt the candies completely, and drink slowly. -G.L. in California NOW HERES A TIPTop Ten Books On The Island1. Sanibel Flats by Randy Wayne White 2. Haunted by Randy Wayne White 3.

53 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 3, 2014 Landing a big sh from the beach can be hard on the sh. Dragging a sh up onto the sand if youre going to release it is not an option as it usually damages or kills the sh. Hold the sh in the water while you unhook it if youre going to release it. The less you can touch a sh before release the better for the sh. If you want a picture with the sh, support it as you lift it out of the water and do it quickly. Before releasing, revive the sh while holding it in the water; moving it slowly back and forth so water goes over its gills. The sh will let you know when its ready to swim off. Florida just recently changed the regulations on shing from shore. Florida residents as well as out of state visitors need a shing license to sh from shore. Don't Harm The Fishby Capt.

The good people of PAWS brought me to Coral Vet. I am so happy to be off the street and I love my visits from my friend Jaylynne, but I need a real home. Jaylynnne said I was very playful when I first arrived, but now I am getting a bit feisty, probably because I am just a young boy (just 7-months-old) and I just want to get out of my cage and run and have fun. If you would like to meet me, stop by Coral Vet in Fort Myers, located near the corner of McGregor Blvd. and Cypress Lake Drive. I would love to have a visitor to play with. For more information about adopting Sox, call Pam at PAWS at 472-4823. Jaylynne holding Sox
