5 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 10, 2014 Sanibel And Captiva Season Looks PromisingMembers of the Sanibel-Captiva Chamber of Commerce are already beginning to sense that this could be an exceptional season for Sanibel. Summer has been one of the best ever and certainly the best for at least seven or eight years, said Trasi Sharp, co-owner of Over Easy Caf. We closed for a few days to carry out some routine work but that was the only time that we did not have a steady flow of business. That is a promising sign for a good season ahead. Sharps experience is similar to that at Shiny Objects in Tahitian Gardens. We agree, said Rachel Thiemann, owner of Shiny Objects. I thought that as usual, in previous years we would see very little traffic in September, but it has been quite the reverse and we are delighted with the result. Many casual observers have also noted that traffic has been much busier than previous slow seasons. The latest report from RSW showed that passenger numbers were up over last year by nearly 8 percent further confirmation that summer has been active for businesses in Southwest Florida. Dan Schuyler, co-owner of Lily and Co., echoed the sentiments of many island businesses when he said, It really does look as if the hard work put in by the chamber over the last few years in trying to level out the seasons is paying off. If I had not known it was September, I would have thought it just another month from the number of customers and their enthusiasm for what Sanibel has to offer. They came, they saw and they dont want to go, said Ric Base, president of the chamber. And now, this is turning out to be as true of the summer months as of the winter. This is great news for the islands. Captiva Community Panel MeetingThe Captiva Community Panel will hold its regular monthly meeting on Tuesday, October 14 beginning at 9 a.m. in the Cone Rooms in Chadwicks Square at South Seas Island Resort.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 10, 2014 8 Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellWe had a full agenda at last weeks Rotary Club meeting and although not timed to coincide with the arrival of our early-bird snowbirds, the activities reminded them that our club members stay active during the summer months. It took about 20 minutes to get through our regular meeting rituals and then on to special award presentations from the club. Rotary Internationals Paul Harris Award was created in memory of Paul Harris, who established the Rotary Club over 106 years ago and it is the highest award presented by the club. Its purpose is to acknowledge the outstanding contributions and exceptional service of members of both the community and/or the club. Past President Alex Werner presented Paul Harris Awards to several members. Don Russell received his third Paul Harris Award, adorned with three sapphire stones. Rotary International Paul Harris Medallions went to Bill Rahe (three-time Paul Harris Award recipient) and newlytransferred Rotary member Brian Boyd (one-time Paul Harris Award recipient). Last week, the club presented Rotarian John Danner his second Paul Harris Award for continuing his Service Above Self involvement with the Rotarys Wheelchair Foundation. Club membership chair Janet Strickland then got her turn to recognize John Pryor and Scot Congress for bringing in new Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club members this year, each receiving a designated color shield backer for their membership pin. Our club also welcomed CROWs Marketing Director, Carie Beeman, for the presentation of a $5,500 check SanibelCaptiva Rotary Club sponsorship of Taste of the Islands. A separate announcement will be made regarding this donation. Certainly not forgotten and graciously allowing us this time for presentations, our guest speaker for the morning was Dr. Bruce Neil, executive director and co-founder of Sanibel Sea School, a non-profit organization dedicated to marine conservation through transformative education with a focus on teaching the wonders of the sea to children and adults alike. Bruce told us his true passion is teaching, and hopes he will be able to provide his students with a lifetime of discovery and passion for ocean stewardship. Bruce walks the talk and certainly has become one of our areas leading environmental leaders. Dr. Neill serves as the local president of START (Solutions to Avoid Red Tide, Inc.) and really spoke to us in that regard. There are still red tide outbreaks and they are extremely challenging to study because of their size and distance from shore, so START has broaden their scope beyond just red tide. START is now focused on finding better understanding of why things happen and what solutions can prevent additional problems for the future; they are now using electronic reporting systems of ocean and beach conditions, water monitoring, the study of sea bird population diseases (CROW playing a vital role in this), education programs regarding good environmental practices and explaining the harm of lawn and shrub fertilizers to the environment. Doc Bruce had a very positive message for all of us: things are looking much better for the water quality here in Lee County. In the past, water releases from Lake Okeechobee down the Caloosahatchee River caused major damage to water quality in the area. The good news: the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have not and are not planning on the continuance of water releases from the lake. The remaining water quality issues are from inland drainage into the river. That can be solved with local government involvement. More good news: We are now seeing a return of brown pelicans to the area. This took some time, but they are now flying over the causeway once again. Solutions come slowly but dont despair good stewardship of our environment will provide solutions and careful study by dedicated biologists, other scientists and environmentalists will find a way to solve and correct some of our problems: planning a future, while looking at the past. START wants to encourage the City of Sanibel to ban the use of plastic bags on the island. They are encouraging islanders to consider changing to solar hot water heaters. START would also like people to be aware of where their markets or restaurants are buying their fish. Buy from participating partners in the Sustainable Seafood movement. Sustainable seafood is described as when the population of that species of fish is managed in a way that provides for todays needs without damaging the ability of the species to reproduce and be available for future generations. Watch how you dispose of your plastic fishing lines. START is having a major fundraising event Crackfest on the grounds behind Ralph Woodrings Bait Box on Sanibel, Friday, November 14. Go have some fun and learn about START. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets at 7 a.m. every Friday at The Dunes Golf and Tennis Club, 949 Sand Castle Road.

9 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 10, 2014 Florida Needs Your Vote For Amendment 1by Committee of the Islands (COTI) Land Use Planning Chairman Larry SchoppIts been almost a year since volunteers on Sanibel and Captiva concluded a hugely successful petition drive to help ensure a place on the November 4th ballot for Amendment 1, Floridas Water and Land Conservation Amendment. Volunteers from Committee of the Islands (COTI), the Sanibel Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF), the League of Women Voters of Sanibel and Audubon of Sanibel and Captiva all contributed to the effort. Statewide, nearly 1,000,000 valid signatures were generated. Now, with the election just weeks away, weve got to keep that momentum going so that we surpass the 60 percent majority needed for passage. In the years Ive been living in Florida, I dont think theres been a more critical ballot measure than Amendment 1, and heres why: The environment is in trouble Those of us who live on Sanibel and Captiva can see our water quality being degraded by excessive nutrient loading. We are experiencing toxic algae blooms that are unhealthy to humans and often deadly to wildlife. Last year, lack of fresh water during the dry season caused the loss of all the oysters and large areas of sea grasses in the Caloosahatchee estuary. Statewide the situation is similar. Many natural springs, wetlands and rivers are not getting enough fresh water to stay healthy. Wildlife habitat, forests and wetlands so critically important to Floridas economy and way of life are being lost. Despite these threats to our environment, the state legislature has drastically reduced spending for conservation. Historically, with bipartisan support, the legislature had provided more than $400 million annually for water and land conservation. Since 2009, the legislature has all but eliminated that spending. Until very recently the legislature even directed that no new land be acquired for conservation under the Florida Forever program unless an equal amount of surplus conservation land was divested. That ill-conceived program (recently suspended) almost resulted in the sale of part of Cayo Costa State Park right in our own backyard. How the amendment will work Heres how the Water and Land Conservation Amendment will help to rewrite the book on conservation in Florida. For the next twenty years, 33 percent of revenues from existing state doc stamp fees (fees paid when real estate is transferred) will be dedicated to funding the Land Acquisition Trust Fund to acquire, restore and manage conservation lands and protect water resources and drinking water sources. It will even provide funding for critical Everglades restoration. No new taxes will be imposed. Doc stamp funds were historically used for conservation purposes until the legislature began diverting them to other uses. Under Amendment 1 the state would be required to allocate them for the purposes intended with no diversion to other uses. The amount of money to be set aside for conservation under Amendment 1 will not have a material impact on the state budget. In fact, it would set aside less that 1% of the annual state budget for conservation. Since funding will be calculated as a percentage of doc stamp revenues, not a fixed amount, the funding allocated in a down economy would be reduced, as would funding for other needs as well. During the petition drive I recall that a couple of people questioned whether we should be legislating by amending the constitution. My answer was that the amendment process is part of the constitution. It vests power in the voters to act directly, especially when the legislature appears unresponsive to the public interest. Article II, Section 7(a) of the Florida Constitution states It shall be the policy of the state to conserve and protect its natural resources and scenic beauty. Adequate provision shall be made by law for the abatement of air and water pollution... and for the conservation and protection of natural resources. What better reason for direct citizen action than failure of the legislature to uphold this constitutional mandate? We owe it to future generations Dont we owe it to future generations to assure that they will be able to enjoy the good water quality, natural places and wildlife that we enjoy that have made Florida the special place it is? We at COTI think we do owe that to our children and grandchildren and thats why we support Amendment 1 the Florida Water and Land Conservation Amendment.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 10, 201410 Council Amends Budget By $777,773by Jeff LysiakOn Tuesday, members of Sanibels city council amended the recently adopted Fiscal Year 2014 budget, lowering the total $777,773 due to estimated revenues being less than the current amended budget. The primary reason for the revenue decrease is the roll forward of beach parking grant funded projects totaling $1,079,907 in grant revenue. A lot of what you see is a result of truing up budget figures, said Steve Chaipel, CPA, a member of the citys finance department. On September 16, council unanimously approved a budget of 1.9995 mills for Fiscal Year 2015. In addition, council approved a resolution amending the FY15 budget by $2,198,888 after rolling forward several projects not completed in 2014. They include: Lighthouse Beach restroom project (TDC grant) $627,127 (The expected grant revenue of $549,907 is being rolled into FY15 as well) Beach parking security video access system $424,554 Periwinkle Way north side shared use path improvements $255,000 Security video access system IT project $201,157 Dinkins Bayou dredging project completion $162,000 Completion of exterior repairs to the employee cottages at the Sanibel Lighthouse $150,000 Answering an inquiry made by councilman Mick Denham, Chaipel confirmed that the majority of these projects were capital related. In other business, council heard a request from Edith and Nikki Rood, owners of The Sanibel Sprout, to consider a waiver of fees they recently paid for a conditional use permit application, which totaled $4,289. Their business, which has been approved to relocate to the Bailey Shopping Center from its present Palm Ridge Road location, anticipates a number of expenses that will accompany their move, including a development permit, building permit and utility permit fees. Because we recently went through a similar process only a few years ago, we would humbly like to request that the fee be waived, if at all possible, a letter from the Roods stated. We are still very much a new niche business, with high hopes for creating a thriving and long-term island favorite hangout, but we are stretched to the limits as it is to make this all happen.continued on page 21 Mayor Kevin Ruane, right, reads a proclamation recognizing the Lets Pink Out Sanibel & Captiva fundraiser, in support of early detection of breast cancer and cancer-related needs in the community, during Tuesdays city council meeting.

Congratulations! Literacy CourseOn Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ, 2050 Periwinkle Way, will be offering a course on literacy on Sundays throughout the month of October. Speaking English. For natives raised in an English-speaking country, it is something one rarely considers. Yet for immigrants from non-English speaking countries, it is a major challenge as one tries to integrate into American society. Should English proficiency be required of all those who seek permanent residency in the United States? This and other questions will be explored in the first week of a four-week course being offered by the Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ, called Learning to Speak English, Learning to Read: Literacy and other Issues. The second third and fourth sessions will deal with the difficulties surround adult literacy in this country. It is estimated that close to 20 percent of all adults are not fully literate in the United States. Various programs work to help address the problem. The course will use a book written by a literacy tutor, Rob Shindler, to explore the issue. Called Hamburgers and Hot Dogs, it recounts Shindlers efforts with adults. Copies of the book will be available at the first class. The class, part of the Sunday Seminar Series, will be held on Sundays until October 26 at 9 a.m. in the churchs Heron Hall. The class will be led by the Rev. Dr. John H. Danner, senior pastor. Dr. Danner has served in the past as a volunteer with Literacy Volunteers of America. The course is free and open to the public. For further information, call the church office at 472-0497 or visit www. sanibelucc.org.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 10, 2014 14 CROW Case Of The Week: Sandwich Ternby Patricia MolloyThe Sandwich tern is a gentle seabird found mostly along the coasts and estuaries of the southeastern United States, Central America, South America, the Caribbean, east Africa and parts of Europe. Social birds, Sandwich terns congregate in large groups known as a hogey of terns and find protection by nesting near more aggressive birds like Arctic terns and black-headed gulls. The genus name of the sandwich tern is Thalasseus sandvicensis: Thalassa is the Greek word for sea and sandvicensis refers to the town of Sandwich, Kent in the United Kingdom, the location of its initial identification. A Sandwich tern is easily identifiable by its shaggy black crest and yellow-tipped black bill. It is also noticeably smaller than the more common royal tern, the subject of last weeks CROW Case of the Week. Last month, a Sandwich tern was admitted to CROW after being found down and unable to fly. He came originally for a little wound from a fishing line. That has since healed great and is looking good, said Brittany Stevens, DVM intern. Dr. Heather transferred the bird to an outdoor enclosure that was large enough for the patient to make short flights that would help it rebuild its strength and stamina. Unfortunately, a problem was quickly detected. He was not flying, explained Dr. Brittany. He had developed swelling in his right hock and one of his right toes. The Sandwich tern was placed on antibiotics for two weeks with mixed results; while the bird is bright and alert, the swelling has not entirely subsided. One of the greatest challenges in veterinary medicine is that patients are unable to articulate what ails them. Just as in human medicine, after one symptom is successfully treated, another can unexpectedly pop up. We dont know what is going on with his hocks, but he eats really well and he enjoys his tub time, she concluded. As long as the Sandwich tern continues to show areas of improvement, CROW will continue to treat it. As of October 6, the wildlife clinic has already treated and released 802 healthy birds, mammals and reptiles back into the wild this year. With time and supportive care, this Sandwich tern will likely be added to the long list of success stories. 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.

19 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 10, 2014 Shell Of The WeekSmooth Duck Clamby Jos H. Leal, PhD, The BaileyMatthews National Shell Museum Science Director & CuratorThe smooth duck clam, Anatina anatina (Spengler, 1802), is a bivalve rarely found in Southwest Florida. It is a close relative of the more common channeled duck clam, Raeta plicatella (Lamarck, 1818), with which it could be confused. Both have very thin, fragile shells, but the latter species, however, shows a sculpture of broader concentric ribs and more rounded outline. The smooth duck clam, as other species of the family Mactridae, has its two long siphons (one sucks water in for filter-feeding, the other expels the used water) fused to form a single, elephant trunk-like structure. This is shown in the Amy Tripps illustration of the live clam (the photo was taken in Collier County). The photo also shows the clams digging foot on the right. Learn more about the smooth duck clam at http://shellmuseum.org/shells/ shelldetails.cfm?id=229.

First Cold Front Of Fall Fires Up The Actionby Capt. Matt MitchellWith the first cold front of fall coming through over the weekend, we finally experienced some lower humidity and not quite so oppressive daytime high temperatures. Although this brief change was only noticeable to us for a couple of days, it was a sure sign that winter is coming to the fish and that they need to get fat for the lean times of winter that are just ahead. This first real sign of fall really make things out on the water start to pop, add to that the huge amount of bait that is already in the area and its like the switch was just flipped to the on position. Redfish were the main species I targeted this week, with good numbers of fish located basically all over the place on any stage of a moving tide. During higher water periods, most mangrove islands and oyster bars with good water movement have been a good choice to catch your redfish. During the lower periods of the tide, working the shallow flats and channel edges of the flats looking for roaming schools of redfish has been the way to go. As always, October is all about great redfish action and they will continue to be the go-to fish all month for most anglers While fishing mangrove shorelines and oyster bars for redfish, there have been plenty of snook, too. Most of these snook Im catching are on the small side from 18 to 24 inches, but Im also just starting to see more and more upper slot and larger snook. These bigger snook are just a whole lot more weary but will start to feed better as things continue to cool. Seeing such good numbers of snook moving across the sound making their way slowly to the back country from the beach and passes already is a sure sign of fall, and often can be some of the best snook fishing of the year. Limits of good-sized mangrove snapper were also caught while targeting redfish this week. Down-sizing your gear has been the key to catching a good limit of these bigger mangs, which can run from 13 to 16 inches. A small light wire #1 hook and 20-pound flourocarbon leader just catches a whole lot more of the bigger sized model snapper than the 30-pound leader and 2/0 hook I usually go with when targeting redfish and snook. As things continue to cool, these bigger mangrove snapper will slowly come to an end, so take advantage of the tasty fillets while you can. Catching quality shiners just keeps getting easier, too. With so much bait in the sound and out on the beaches, its just been a matter of spotting them either on the surface or flashing just below and making one throw with the cast net for all you need for the days fishing. Even with less than perfect tides, if you have enough shiners to live chum, you can get the fish to eat. Look for a wide variety of species to be also taking advantage of this easy bait too including trout, jacks, mackerel, sharks and ladyfish. Shiners are the catchit-all bait right now, so even if youre not a live bait fisherman, the lures youre using should resemble a shiner for the best results. Capt. Matt Mitchell has been fishing local waters since he moved to Sanibel in 1980. He now lives in St. James City and works as a back country fishing guide.

21 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 10, 2014 Compensation For Council Members Under Considerationby Jeff LysiakThe idea of compensating elected officials was brought up for discussion during Tuesdays city council meeting, in large part because the responsibilities of those officials including travel to attend off-island meetings has dramatically increased over the course of time. I willfully ran for this position eight years ago, and I proudly serve this community, said Mayor Kevin Ruane, who noted that in addition to serving on the city council, he currently serves on a number of off-island boards, organizations and committees including the Florida League of Mayors, Tourist Development Council and Metropolitan Planning Organization which require him to travel to Fort Myers and beyond. In the past year, Ruane said he has traveled to Tallahassee nine times and to Washington, DC four times. I never anticipated the expenditures associated with this, he added. Currently, the city permits elected officials a stipend of $50 per day for meals, which according to City Manager Judie Zimomra is regulated by state law. Mileage reimbursement for fuel is regulated by an Internal Revenue Service allowance. Ruane offered that he brought the matter of compensation up for discussion so that officials arent required to pay for their own direct or indirect expenses associated with attending off-island meetings out of their own pockets. He estimated that in the past year, he personally has spent in excess of $15,000. I will continue to do what the citizens of Sanibel want us to do, he said. Whenever anything is asked of us, were the first ones to raise our hands. Vice Mayor Doug Congress praised Ruane for bringing the matter up for debate, calling the mayor a brave man. However, he also said that the decision of whether to increase the stipend or create a salary for elected officials is for the public to decide. At the end of the day, let the citizens make the decision on this. Ruane also noted that the city has twice voted on compensating elected officials, which on both occasions was defeated. Councilman Mick Denham, who said at one time officials serving on off-island boards and committees was frowned upon, would not support establishing a salary but would back fairly compensating officials for their expenses. Marty Harrity praised the council for the amount of respect that Sanibel has attained over the years from groups at the county, state and federal level. This is something that we need to talk about, he added. Ultimately, its going to be in the hands of our citizens. During public comment on the topic, resident Ruth Woodham suggested that the council look at what cities similar in size to Sanibel do to compensate their officials, and consider term limits. Karen Storjohann said that compensation to cover growing expenses should be adjusted to something more realistic while Gloria Hannan warned that creating a salary for elected officials might be too tempting and cause candidates to run for office just for the money. You have raised the bar for what is expected of you and you have delivered, said resident David Bath in praising the city council, while Richard Johnson added, If we paid you what youre worth, we couldnt afford you. Ruane also noted that among the 430 members of the Florida League of Cities, only 11 cities including Sanibel do not pay their elected officials. Its only fair to let the people know what our expenses are, he said. We shouldnt be paying out of our own pockets. After some additional debate, Ruane made a motion to continue discussions on the subject until their next meeting, scheduled for Tuesday, November 4. City staff will gather additional information regarding adjusting stipends to cover expenses, and will make a formal presentation during the session. From page 10BudgetCouncilman Jim Jennings said that he was in favor of considering reducing the costs in an effort to assist an established island business, but Denham was wary of allowing a fee waiver. If we give (a waiver) to one business, why shouldnt we give it to another? he asked. Nikki Rood said that they paid a conditional use permit application fee in 2012, when the business was started. Vice Mayor Doug Congress, who said that The Sanibel Sprouts move to the Bailey Center was a smart move, also said he couldnt support waiving the fee, but that council might consider a fee reduction. Mayor Kevin Ruane made a motion to continue the discussion on the matter until their next meeting, after city staff can assemble a history of fees already paid by the business. Improvements Highlight 2014 Golf Course Report Cardby Jeff LysiakTwo island golf courses are in full compliance with the citys recommendations for lake management to help reduce nutrient loading, while one golf course is partially in compliance but significantly improved, the city council learned during Tuesdays meeting. Holly Millbrandt, acting natural resources department director, delivered a PowerPoint presentation that annually evaluates the progress local golf courses have made in implementing the Sanibel Golf Course and Lake Management Recommendations, which was established in 2011. She explained that city staff met with representatives from each golf course, reviewed each item on the best management practices (BMPs) checklist, toured and inspected the facilities, and evaluated implementation of the recommendations. The Sanctuary Golf Club and The Dunes Golf & Tennis Club remain in full compliance with the citys recommendations and continue to make progress in implementing the BMPs, Millbrandts report stated. Although there are additional opportunities for improvements at both courses, reductions in nutrient loading to their lakes are likely if they continue with their current practices. Under new ownership since November 2012, Sanibel Island Golf Club improved from not in compliance to partially in compliance with the citys recommendations; this significant improvement over the past year demonstrates their commitment to the program and improving water quality within the lakes and the Sanibel River. The 2014 Golf Course Report Card concluded: The Dunes Golf & Tennis Club earned 60.5 out of 65 points, for a score of 93 percent and a 30 percent improvement since 2011. The Dunes is in Full Compliance with the citys BMP recommendations. The Sanctuary Golf Club earned 64 out of 65 points, for a score of 98 percent and a 7 percent improvement since 2011. The Sanctuary is in Full Compliance with the citys BMP recommendations. Sanibel Island Golf Club earned 54 out of 65 points, for a score of 83 percent and a 29 percent improvement since 2013. The Sanibel Island Golf Club is Partially In Compliance with the citys BMP recommendations. In general, were very pleased with the results and the cooperation weve received from the golf courses, said Millbrandt, who added that although the report card scores arent meant to represent one being better than another, a little healthy competition isnt necessarily a bad thing. Councilman Jim Jennings congratulated all of the island golf courses for their scores, noting that Sanibel Island Golf Clubs 29 percent improvement over the past year is quite an accomplishment.

Some people consider it a turf weed, but others see it as a native wildflower that attracts a variety of beneficial pollinators and provides nectar for the rare zarucco duskywing butterfly. The flowers appear on slender hairy stalks that grow from the center of a rosette of basal leaves. Stalks can be as high as three feet. Each flower has a round yellow disk of only about a half-inch across that is surrounded by more than a hundred slender petals of white, lavender or yellow. The petal edges have a fringy look. This daisyor star-like configuration is common to the aster family. In fact, the flower is also called daisy fleabane, as well as southern fleabane. This flower blooms throughout the year in South Florida, but most profusely in spring and early summer. The basal leaves resemblance to some species of oak trees inspires the name oakleaf. They are lobed, tapered at the base and broadest at the tip. They measure two to four inches long and less than an inch wide. The clasping leaf stems are much smaller. This plant forms masses when left to thrive, so it works as a low-maintenance groundcover or in a wildflower garden. Give it full sun to partial shade in a moist spot. It will grow even in nutrient-poor soil and will tolerate salt wind, but not saltwater. Propagate it with the minute seeds. Dead-head the spent flowers to control reseeding. The term fleabane comes from the belief that burning the foliage will banish fleas. Various species of dried fleabane plants were once used as pest control in mattress stuffing.

Well, at CROW, we are looking, stated Dr. Heather Barron, hospital director, DVM, Dipl. ABVP-avian. A big part of conservation medicine is appreciating the things that sick wild animals may be trying to tell us. Staying on the cutting edge of wildlife medicine and collaborating with human health officials, local biologists and environmentalists allows us to best serve the One World, One Health concept. An excellent example of this is the outbreak of Ranavirus in Florida box turtles on Captiva Island this year. Ranaviruses have been called cold-blooded killers because they cause illness and death in fish, amphibians and reptiles. This viral disease has rarely been documented in Florida reptiles, but possibly because no one knowledgeable about this disease was looking, commented Dr. Barron. When the first turtle with swollen eyelids, plaques in the mouth and nasal discharge was admitted to CROW, we became immediately suspicious. State wildlife veterinarians were immediately alerted and samples were submitted to the Southeastern Cooperative Wildlife Disease Study (SCWDS), where the diagnosis was confirmed. Ranavirus typically exists at low prevalence (less than five percent of individuals infected in a population), and then rapidly emerge, with mortality often exceeding 90 percent in multiple species. With one in three amphibian species and over 40 percent of turtles at risk of extinction, Ranavirus represents a significant threat to amphibian and reptile ecosystems. Ranaviral disease has been likened to Ebola for amphibians because their bodies swell and hemorrhage. The reasons for Ranavirus emergence at a site vary, but often are related to stressors that can be natural or environmentally caused. It is essential that we understand the threat of Ranavirus and act quickly to address its spread. Call the CROW hotline at 472-3644 if you see any turtles or other wildlife that you believe may be ill. Ranavirus is effecting wildlife in Southwest Florida Ranavirus outbreak in Florida box turtles National Adopt A Shelter Dog MonthThe Animal Refuge Center, located at 18011 Old Bayshore Road in North Fort Myers, is celebrating National Adopt A Shelter Dog Month with reduced rates on adoption of our canine residents.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 10, 2014 28 Lifelong Learning Lecture On ColumbusThe Academy of Lifelong Learning at Shell Point welcomes Dr. Adrian Kerr on Tuesday, October 14 at 10 a.m. in the Grand Cypress Room at the Woodlands as he presents a lecture on How Columbus Almost Did Not Discover America. Young Genoese sailor Christopher Columbus dreamt of emulating the Venetian Marco Polos pioneering travels to China. Columbus suffered many setbacks, being repeatedly turned down by the courts of England, Portugal, and Spain, who correctly believed that he had underestimated the distances involved. However, 1492 saw the culmination of his twenty-year campaign to gather support and funds to fulfill his dream of discovering Polos Japan and China by sailing west not east. The race was on: Would Portugal control the spice and silk trade, or could Spain beat them to it? Dr. Kerr will explore how perilously close he came to failure. Tickets for the presentation are $10, and registration is required by calling 489-8472. The Academy of Lifelong Learning at Shell Point is an educational initiative for the residents of the retirement community. The Academy provides approximately 80 classes each semester that encompass a well-rounded curriculum of educational opportunities for senior adults.

29 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 10, 2014 Florida SouthWestern Presents Rauschenberg: China/America MixFlorida SouthWestern State College and lead sponsor FineMark National Bank & Trust announced the first solo exhibition of world renowned artist Robert Rauschenberg since his memorial at the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery in 2008 and the first installation in more than a decade of his monumental 100 foot-long Chinese Summerhall (1984) photograph. Rauschenberg: China/America Mix is the artists 16th one-man show at the college (since the gallery was founded in 1979) and celebrates the 10-year anniversary of the gallerys renaming and dedication in his honor. Widely-acknowledged as one of the most important artists of the 20th century, Rauschenberg is credited with pioneering the transition from European modernism to American pop art and was a local Lee County resident for nearly four decades. His effect still looms large around the globe, but this is particularly evident in China. Inspired by his 1982 visit to Jing Xian and his work at the ancient Xuan Paper Mill on his 7 [Chinese] Characters collages (included in this exhibition), Rauschenberg returned to China in 1985 to mount his Rauschenberg Overseas Culture Interchange (ROCI) exhibition at the National Gallery in Beijing. Open to the public for less than three weeks, Rauschenbergs ROCI/China show attracted more than 300,000 visitors and is still considered a seminal cultural event. To this day, the most recognized Chinese artists acknowledge his great influence and broader impact in describing art in China before and after Rauschenberg. As the artist once noted, ROCI [was] an attempt to create universal art, imbued with cultures of various peoples, in order to contribute to the cause of peace. While photographing the environs, according to Dr. Donald Saff, a sense of China unfolded in the viewfinder of Rauschenbergs Hasselblad. He continued, The enthusiasm of his working methodology was his diplomacy and his art was magic for the peoples spirit. The Rauschenberg: China/America Mix exhibition will open to the public from 7 to 9 p.m. on Bob Rauschenbergs October 22 birthday, with musical performances by longtime friends Dickie Landry, Kat Epple and Sonic Combine. A pre-opening lecture on Rauschenberg In China will be presented from 6 to 7 p.m. by distinguished guest Dr. Donald Saff (founder of USFs Graphicstudio and artistic director of Rauschenberg Overseas Culture Interchange/ROCI). These events are open to the public, free of charge. The first-come, first-served seating for the 6 p.m. lecture is limited. Gallery hours are Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Closed Sundays and holidays.

From page 1Third Graders Enjoy Dictionary Day TraditionThis book is yours to keep even the principal cant take it away from you, joked Werner. Congress asked the youngsters about the 4-Way Test, the Rotarian credo which hangs on a banner in the schools cafeteria. The test asks: Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build good will and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned? Rahe then asked the students to look up the word pledge in their new dictionaries, which they all did quickly. The 4-Way Test is a good pledge for your entire life, said school principal Barbara Von Harten. Always speak the truth, and take care of each other, added Werner. More than 10,000 dictionaries are handed out by Lee County Rotarians each year on Dictionary Day, which became a tradition of the San-Cap Rotary Club in 1999.

2B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 10, 2014 Zonta, Academy Treat Domestic Violence Survivors To Special Nightsubmitted by Dalia JakubauskasAll too often, there is little joy to go around in the life of a domestic violence victim. But that was not the case on a recent night at The Salon Professional Academy in Fort Myers, where survivors of domestic abuse were treated to A Night of Beauty by the academys students and staff in partnership with the Zonta Club of Sanibel/Captiva. Twenty-one clients from the Fort Myers and Cape Coral shelters run by Abuse Counseling and Treatment, Inc. (ACT) received free haircuts, styling, blowouts and manicures at the event held on September 30. Smiles and laughter were in abundant supply at the event that was organized by the Sanibel/Captiva chapter of Zonta, an organization of professional women dedicated to advancing the status of women through service and advocacy locally and globally through Zonta International. I cant tell you how much this means to me, said one of ACTs clients, who cannot be named because of confidentiality agreements. I dont remember the last time I had a haircut. This is so wonderful, she added, showing off her sleek, new hairstyle. Other area businesses also contributed to the event, including Island Pizza Company on Sanibel, which donated pizza to feed the crowd of nearly 40 people, and The Southwest Florida Transportation Group, Inc., which provided transportation services for the women from the shelters. Sanibel resident and Zontian Gari Lewis, a professional color and fashion consultant, also helped some of the women pick their best clothing colors when choosing a wardrobe. From the laughter shared by stylists and clients alike, it was hard to tell who was having more fun. Students and staff at the academy insisted they were the ones who got the most out of the night. This is a tremendous opportunity for the salon leaders of tomorrow to help others, said Chris Lewis, president of the Salon Professional Academy. They get so much out of this just by blow drying someones hair and changing the way that person looks at themselves. Jessica Sanchez, a counselor at the Fort Myers shelter, pointed out that some of the women started the evening quite disheartened but ended it with huge smiles on their faces. Some of them come in to the shelter so depressed that they spend most of their time in their rooms, she said. To see them come out of their shells like this isso great. Last year, ACT provided shelter and resident services, such as group and individual counseling, jobs skills training and specialized childrens services, to nearly 650 domestic violence victims. ACTs Fort Myers shelter has 68 beds while its Cape Coral shelter has 22. It also operates a shelter in Port Charlotte and offers non-residential counseling programs, rape crisis services and community education in Lee, Hendry andcontinued on page 11B Salon Professional Academy student Chantel Pynckel works on a client from ACT Zontians Barbara Beran, Nancy Dreher, Gari Lewis and Kris Ritts; Salon Professional Academy President Chris Lewis, with academy students and staff CHUCK BERGSTROMIsland Resident Award Winning RealtorDirect: 239-209-6500 Of ce: 239-472-2735 www.BuySellChatSanibel.com 690 Birdie View Point 690 Birdie View PointBuild your Island dream home on Sanibel Island Golf course.

6B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 10, 2014 Rumor Has It That Hall Of Famer Paul Molitor Has Inside Track As Minnesota Twins Managerby Ed FrankWhen the Minnesota Twins return here in February for Spring Training, Hall of Famer Paul Molitor will be the teams new manager, according to baseball insiders. Twins General Manager Terry Ryan is in the midst of interviewing candidates for the job and its possible that a decision is still weeks in the future. He has said he will look internally and externally, but the word is that Molitor leads the list to take over for Ron Gardenhire, who was fired last week after 13 years at the helm. I think well certainly open it up to anybody and everybody that is capable of managing a Major League baseball team, Ryan said recently. I dont think we ought to just stay within, although that would be a nice preference if you could. Molitor just completed his first year as a Twins coach, and although he has no prior managing experience, he is respected as a brilliant evaluator of talent, a strong motivator and highly respected by players. Heres what columnist Jim Souhan of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune wrote recently: The Twins know what they have in Molitor. Hes a baseball genius, a gifted teacher of young players, a Hall of Fame competitor and, as something of an outcast on Gardenhires coaching staff, the rare detached insider who knows exactly what this team needs to improve. So the Twins should do as Ryan insists and conduct a wide-ranging search for their next manager. And then they should hire Molitor. Molitors Major League career spanned 21 years with Milwaukee, Toronto and Minnesota. He is only one of six players in baseball history to amass more than 3,000 hits and 500 stolen bases. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2004. His ties to the Twins include 10 years as Minor League base running/infield coordinator and a year as Twins bench coach. Other in-house candidates reportedly include Fort Myers Miracle Manager Doug Mientkiewicz, Twins bench coach Terry Steinbach and Triple-A manager Gene Glynn. We believe that Mientkiewicz already has been interviewed by Ryan. Outside the Twins organization, there have been reports that Ryan is interested in Chicago White Sox third-base coach Joe McEwing, Boston Red Sox bench coach Torey Lovullo and Baltimore Orioles bench coach John Russell. Interviewing Russell would have to wait until the Orioles complete post-season play. The Twins have a long history as an inhouse family, normally promoting from within or turning to former Twins players. And theres little doubt that this remains Ryans preference. My preference is to get the best guy. It would be nice to get a guy thats inside because hed know the inner workings of the organization, and the market, and the ballpark, and the personnel. That would be great, but sometimes its not meant to be, Ryan said recently.continued on page 11B Paul Molitor SPORTS QUIZ 1.

Greggs, NCSPDear Readers,In honor of National Audiology Month this October, I asked an expert, Barbara A. Greenberg-Cordero, MS, CCC-A, FAAA, to write a guest column on this topic. She has been a licensed audiologist for over 25 years, first for developmentally delayed adults, then as a pediatric audiologist at Miami Childrens Hospital. Currently, she is the clinical director for a large newborn hearing screening program at First Sounds Newborn Hearing Screening Program/Kidz Medical Services in South Florida. Following is her column: Can You Hear Me Now? Learning and education begins long before a child enters a classroom. From the very first time you speak to your infant (Im your mom and daddys been waiting to meet you), your baby is listening and learning language. In fact, your baby is listening to the world for almost an entire year before she or he utters her or his first word. If all parts of the hearing system are not functioning properly, delays in speech and language are likely to occur. Hearing loss is the most common disorder present at birth, but unlike other disorders, hearing loss is invisible and frequently goes undetected until age 2, later if the hearing loss is less severe or in only one ear. Even mild hearing losses and hearing loss in one ear can affect speech, language, listening skills and educational performance. The later a hearing problem is detected, the more difficult it will be to overcome these delays. That is why it is so important to have your newborns hearing screened and follow up with a pediatric audiologist if your newborn doesnt pass the hearing screening at birth. The audiologist will conduct further testing to determine how your baby is hearing, whether or not there is a problem, and if so, whether it is temporary or permanent. If your baby wasnt born in a hospital, talk to your pediatrician about where you can go to have your babys hearing screened, or visit a pediatric audiologist in your area. Newborn hearing screening is only the first step in early detection of hearing loss. Hearing can change at any time as your child grows. Additionally, any baby who has spent time in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, has a blood relative with hearing loss that occurred in early childhood, or has any type of malformation in their head or ear, may be at slightly higher risk for developing hearing loss. These babies should be monitored periodically by a pediatric audiologist to ensure that no changes in hearing are detected. Parents and other family members are usually the first to suspect that their baby or child may have a hearing problem. Some signs to look for are: Lack of awareness or inconsistent responses to sounds by six months of age Does not respond when you call his/ her name at 7 months to 1 year Does not point to familiar objects by 15 months Does not follow simple directions by 1-2 years Does not say 6-20 words by 18 months Does not put two words together by 24 months (want juice, daddy go) Pulling or scratching at ears Difficulty in school at any age Parents should never take a wait and see position, but should see a licensed audiologist immediately if there is concern about hearing, speech or language development or educational performance. Even if your child is diagnosed with a permanent hearing loss, dont despair. They are perfect the way they are. There are many resources and support for children and families so that your child can lead a normal and healthy life and achieve all their goals, hopes and dreams.

The projects include seminars on job interview skills such as, dressing for success, body language and verbal skills, as part of ACTs life skills workshops for shelter residents.

19B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 10, 2014 Publisher Of Nature Calendar Makes Donation To CROWby Jeff LysiakLast week, Jim Fowler, publisher of The Sanibel-Captiva Nature Calendar, made a donation of $1,000 to the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW). Joining Fowler for the check presentation at CROWs Visitor Education Center were calendar editor Kim Lawton and the clinics interim executive director Linda Estep. This is the 27th year weve produced the nature calendar and the 26th year weve made a donation to a conservation organization, said Fowler. We do a lot from just local publication, which is only sold in Southwest Florida. Since making his first donation in 1989, Fowlers calendar sales have generated more than $20,000 in donations including five directly to CROW, totaling $3,150 over the years. For me, and I am sure many others, this group of wildlife caretakers provides crucial animal care that touches our hearts, said Fowler. In a world of constant human encroachment and loss of wildlife habitat, CROW is a place where animals obtain a second chance at life. Other conservation groups and organizations that have been supported over the years through calendar sales include the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation, the Ding Darling Wildlife Society, The International Osprey Foundation, Sanibel-Captiva Audubon, the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, Calusa Nature Center, Save The Manatee Club, Caretta and Turtle Time, Inc. The 2015 edition of the Sanibel-Captiva Nature Calendar features a pair of white ibis foraging in the surf at Tarpon Bay Beach on the cover. The image was photographed by Marianne Bargiotti, who frequently travels from her home base in Italy to photograph her favorite islands. Photographers featured in this edition include Theresa Baldwin, Cliff Beittell, Dick Fortune, Robert Kimbrell, Sara Lopez, Cheryl Molennor and Lorraine Sommer. In addition, there are photo narratives by islander Betty Anholt and former islander Charles LeBuff. Each month features a shell sketch by the late islander Sue Stephens and a turtle graphic during the sea turtle nesting months. The calendar retails for $14.95 and is sold throughout Southwest Florida in book stores and gift shops. For mail orders, send $14.95 (plus $2 shipping and handling) to Sanibel-Captiva Nature Calendar, PO Box 356, Sanibel Island, FL 33957. For the custom Blind Pass Tide edition, send $17.95 (plus $2 shipping and handling). For more information, visit www.sancapcalendar.com.

20B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 10, 2014 Theres much confusion for family members when a loved one dies with a revocable trust. Often they believe that the successor trustee can simply wrap things up and distribute the trust assets right away. Thats not the case. When all or some part of the decedents assets are held in a revocable trust at the time of his or her death, then the successor trustee has many of the same duties that the personal representative has when probating a will. Simply said, whoever is serving as trustee must, under Florida law: 1. Marshal the assets of trust change title of the accounts from the decedent as the original trustee of the trust to whomever is acting as trustee of the administrative trust; 2. Obtain date of death values of the trust assets; 3. Preserve the trust assets (prudent investor rule) during the trust administration; 4. Ensure that all of the decedents creditors are paid; 5. File all necessary tax returns and ensure that taxes are paid; 6. Prepare and file accountings to the beneficiaries; and 7. Make distribution to the beneficiaries or establish the testamentary trusts created under the terms of the trust. The difference between what the personal representative does in a probate administration and what a trustee must accomplish in a trust administration is that the probate administration is overseen by a court of law. It is a public process that must await a judges order to act. Further, to open a probate administration requires the filing of a rather hefty filing fee with the probate court. Consequently, probates are often more time consuming and therefore more expensive than a trust administration. With that said, there is a significant difference with regard to clearing the decedents creditors. The probate process has a definite time period (three months) under which a creditor must file a claim against the estate. Once all of the creditors are cleared, then the personal representative is free to make final distribution without fear of having to satisfy a creditor claim out of his own pocket. The statutory time limit in a trust administration, in contrast, is two years under Florida law. Floridas trust administration statutes do not contain a corresponding legal function to clear creditors in a relatively short 90-day period as exists under Floridas Probate Code. The Probate Code also contains provisions to deal with creditor disputes through its objection to creditor claims statutes. Floridas trust administration statutes do not provide the same type of laws. So what is a trustee to do? If he makes final distribution before the two-year window expires, then he could have to come out of pocket to satisfy a creditor. One answer is to open an empty probate simply to clear creditors in a 90-day window. By empty probate I mean that the probate proceeding is opened only to use the probate rules to ensure that all creditors have had due process to make a claim against the estate. Its not as onerous as a regular full probate because the court doesnt have any jurisdiction over the trust assets. The probate inventory is zero as all of the assets are held in the trust. Another option is to hold some assets in a reserve fund until the two-year window closes. After filing the necessary tax returns and either making payment of or reserving sufficient funds for taxes, the trustee must work to prepare accountings to the beneficiaries, and eventually making distribution of the assets. Revocable trusts commonly contain testamentary trusts that benefit the surviving spouse for the rest of his or her life (marital trust) or a continuing trust for children or other family members. Here the trustee will transfer the assets from the administrative trust to the trustee of the continuing trusts. Since there is no court to discharge a trustee like there is in a probate to discharge a personal representative from liability, it is important for the trustee to obtain consents and waivers from the trust beneficiaries indicating that they have had the opportunity to review the trust, to verify the trust inventory, and to approve or waive any objection to the accounting. The attorney for the trustee can assist in limiting the trustees liability by taking advantage of Floridas statutory limitation language. If the appropriate language is properly placed on the appropriate accounting documents, a beneficiary is limited to a period of six months to challenge the accounting. One final comment sometimes there are assets in the trust as well as in the decedents name individually. When this happens, you have a simultaneous probate and trust administration. This isnt the best situation, and happens usually because a revocable trust was only partially funded during the grantors lifetime. Here, there are laws that serve to coordinate the actions of the trustee and the personal representative. Often these are the same individuals, but there are different notice and accounting rules when they are not. The attorneys expertise is vital in this situation to help guide the process. Craig R.

Insurance Tip Fire Hazardsby Angela Larson RoehlThere are homes here on the island and throughout the United States that have electrical panels that are deemed unsafe and unacceptable by some insurance carriers. The issue is that the panels pose a fire hazard if they have an overcurrent or short circuit. The electrical panels can appear to work fine for years, but after just one overcurrent or short, the panels can overheat and become fire hazards. Please take a moment and check what kind of electrical panel you have and if you should have any of the following, then I urge you to contact a licensed electrician to replace the panel. Here is a list of some of the panels that have had a history of concern: Federal Pacific, Zinsco, Sylvania and Challenger. Angela Larson Roehl is a local Sanibel-Captiva insurance agent with over 20 years of insurance experience. She can be reached at email@example.com. Superior InteriorsSilks, Tapestries And Taffetas, Oh My!by Marcia FeeneyNothing creates a more memorable design than the addition of luxurious fabrics and linens to your rooms, especially in the bedroom. Like people, memorable rooms have their own personalities. Have you ever walked into a friends home and immediate sensed that their rooms design matched their personality perfectly? Creating a bedroom that showcases your personality is at the very heart of a successful room design. Whether romantic, casual, transitional or contemporary, creating the mood you want by selecting the right furnishings, fabrics, lighting and accessories is ultimately the key to any successful decorating project. The best way to give your bedroom a bit of a romantic touch is in your selections of fabrics to adorn both your bed, seating and windows. Nothing says romance more than the soft feel of willowy, textured fabrics. So pamper yourself with some of todays hottest fabrics and consider using them in creative, even whimsical ways. Bedding ensembles come in a variety of sizes, shapes and designs, from the uniquely custom designed outline quilted bedspread to simple contemporary duvet covers. Your bedding should take center stage in your room. Add multiple pillow shams in several fabric coordinates, decorative pillows in unique sizes and shapes or a coordinating bed skirt to round out your overall look. Incorporating a romantically designed window treatment will also add to the overall feeling of your room. Consider framing your windows with a soft billowy, silky sheer displayed on a decorative rod, or pile on the fabrics in a softly multicolor scheme. Marcia Feeney is an interior designer on Sanibel/Captiva Islands. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Eden Energy MedicineEEM First Aid Help Stop Or Reduce Seizure With Hook-Upby Karen L. Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAML (03-12)There are moments when you wish you had a tool to intervene and help someone, including yourself, of course, who is having seizure. The Hook-up is one of those tools. There are two meridians (defined energetic pathways) that circle our core, one called the Central Meridian, which begins at the pelvic area, runs up the front of the body ending deep in the throat at the level of the bottom lip; and the second called Governing Meridian, which begins at the base of your tailbone, runs up the spine, over the head, ending deep in the back of your throat in line with the top lip. These two meridians act as an energetic casing bridging the energies between front and back, head and torso, and send energy to all the other energetic systems of the body. When you connect the two, you are literally creating an immediate neurological boost and centering yourself or someone else. The Hook-up is easy. Place the middle finger of one hand on the third eye (between the eyebrows and bridge of the nose) and the middle finger of the other hand in the navel. Press both middle fingers into the skin and gently pull upwards, holding up to 30 seconds (or longer if it feels good). If you experience a yawn, sigh and take a deep breath, you know your or the other persons energies just connected, providing that neurological boost! Have fun with your energy! Next weeks topic is EEM First Aid Siphon Out a Childs Pain. If you have a question, email Karen Semmelman at SemmEnergyCenter@ gmail.com. Learn more at www.semmelmanenergy.com.

LeSage, OD Timothy E. Underhill, OD WE ARE MOVING SOON deaRPharmacistHow Do Pills And Plastic Impact Your Healthby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Readers:Drinking from plastic water bottles, or taking The Pill can cause hypothyroidism by raising levels of estrogen hormone in your body. The same can be said about menopause drugs which contain the same synthetic estrogen ingredients or commercial cattle injected with estrogen hormones to make animals heavier at the point of sale. In humans, these hormones raise estrogen, and estrogen holds fat. This sounds counterintuitive, but men frequently have high levels of estrogen, especially if they have prostate problems but thats another article. My point is, excess estrogen causes too many transporters, or taxis, which bind up your active thyroid hormone. When bound like that, thyroid hormone is completely unavailable to your cells which is where you need it. Scientifically termed thyroid binding globulin or TBG, these transporters drive your thyroid hormone around your blood and drop it off at your cells to wake you up and burn off that foot-long sub you had last night. When TBG is high, free thyroid hormone (Free T3) is low and you will have symptoms of hypothyroidism, more specifically, you are what I call thyroid sick. I talked about this in my Thyroid Healthy book. Ladies, please note that hypothyroidism is a risk factor for premature birth, low birth weight, miscarriage and poor fetal neurological development. Since the popular (relatively useless) TSH blood test doesnt mirror how you really feel, and fails to reflect intracellular thyroid levels, I suggest two special blood tests which paint a better picture: Sex Hormone Binding Globulin or SHBG. Suggested Level: Women <70 and Men <30. What does sex hormone have to do with thyroid hormone? A lot, at least in women. It doesnt correlate well in men though so I wouldnt track SHBG in men. This biomarker goes up in response to three things; estrogen, insulin or thyroid hormone. They correlate directly. If SHBG is low, it means you have either low estrogen, high insulin (diabetes to follow) or low thyroid hormone. Thyroid Binding Globulin or TBG. Suggested Level: 13 39 mcg/ml. This is a blood test to evaluate how many taxis or transporters you have in your blood stream. The pill increases your TBG, thats why you feel more tired on those drugs. They latch onto your thyroid hormone and that makes you tired. Progesterone medication or creams may help, ask your doctor. There are a few simple things that help. For one, you can switch out your plastic water bottles for glass bottles. You can buy grass-fed, organic free-range meats more frequently. You can find an alternate form of hormone replacement or contraception. You can ask doc about natural over-the-counter aromatase inhibitors like chrysin or DIM. You should try different thyroid medicine or higher levels of T3. Most of all, dont resign yourself to this is just my life or my doctor is really nice so I cant speak up for myself. I believe you can get well. Never resign yourself to symptoms that leave you feeling less than healthy, sexy and energetic! This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

Doctor and DietitianHow To Tell If You Are Eating Too Many Carbsby Ross Hauser, MD and Marion Hauser, MS, RDConfused about what should appear on your plate? Is a high protein diet right for you? Maybe you should be a vegetarian? Lets take a look at carbohydrates. Eating too many or the wrong kind of carbohydrates can lead to weight gain, elevated blood sugar, triglyceride and cholesterol levels, as well as contribute to feelings of sluggishness and fatigue, not to mention dental problems, and even contribute to the development of cancer. Surely we all want to avoid these conditions. The average American consumed 400 grams of carbohydrates per day in the 1970s, which has now increased to over 550 grams per day. More importantly, sugar consumption has soared from about 25 pounds per year to over 135 pounds per year. The average American consumes over 22 teaspoons of sugar per day, or 8,000 teaspoons per year. Where is all of this sugar coming from? The three top sources of added sugar in the diet of Americans are soda, energy drinks and sports drinks; grain-based desserts, such as cakes and cookies; and fruit drinks. Are you consuming too many carbohydrates? To answer that simply: Men, if you look down and cannot see your toes, you are eating too many carbohydrates. Ladies, if you are having a hard time zipping your slacks, you are likely eating too many carbohydrates, or you are eating the wrong carbohydrates. Take the carb cutting challenge. Five tips for curbing your carbs: 1. Dump the soda, sports drinks, juices and sweetened teas. Stick with water, unsweetened tea or coffee. Add lemon, lime or cucumbers. 2. Limit desserts to a couple of times per week, and in small portions. 3. Eliminate breads, including bagels, muffins and the like. (This wont be easy, so work on it gradually.) Start with the white ones. 4. Reduce fruit consumption to one serving per day. 5. Add more fresh vegetables to all of your meals, and were not talking about ketchup! We mean dark greens, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, carrots, peas, eggplant and the like. Let us know how you are doing and if you are better able to visualize your waistline.

23B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 10, 2014 USPS Breast Cancer StampPost Offices nationwide will be supporting Breast Cancer Awareness month in October through the sales of Breast Cancer Research First-Class Semipostal stamps. The self-adhesive, non-denominated semipostal stamp is sold in sheets of twenty 60-cent stamps. The price of a semipostal pays for the First-Class single-piece postage rate in effect at the time of purchase. The stamps are available at Post Offices nationwide, online at www.usps.com and by phone at 800-STAMP-24. By law, 70 percent of the net amount raised is given to the National Institutes of Health and 30 percent is given to the Medical Research Program at the Department of Defense. Since 1998, the stamp has raised over $79 million for breast cancer research. The Breast Cancer Research FirstClass Semipostal stamp was issued on July 29, 1998 at a first day ceremony held in the White House. It was the first semipostal stamp in U.S. history. In 1997, Congress authorized the issuance of the first semipostal stamp for the specific purpose of raising funds from the American public to assist in finding a cure for breast cancer. In 2011, President Obama signed Public Law No. 112-80 that extends the sale of the Breast Cancer Research Semipostal stamps through December 31, 2015. Designed by Ethel Kessler of Bethesda, Maryland, the stamp features the phrases Fund The Fight and Find A Cure, along with an illustration of a mythical goddess of the hunt by Whitney Sherman of Baltimore.

Dear Mom & Me, Our daughter is more than we can handle and we dont know what to do next. Growing up, she was the wild one. Alcohol, drugs, abortions the whole thing, and time in jail didnt help. She was unable to live alone and we thought we could help if she lived with us. Wrong. We are much older now, with longterm health problems. She makes our lives miserable. We have asked her to leave, but she never does. Her alcohol and drug problems are getting worse, and we never know what the next day will bring. Would you please help us? Sally Dear Sally, Your situation seems to be a growing family problem. It is a difficult situation that requires the guidance of multiple professions. If you feel unsafe, call 911 about protective services. You and your husband need to call an attorney who is familiar with family problems such as yours and get all of the advice you can get. Pryce Dear Sally, Parents always think they know what is best for their children, but frequently we are ill-equipped and must call the professionals for help. Yours seems like a long-standing problem situation that will only get worse until help of the right kind is enforced. Your own health and well-being should be your focus and let others handle your daughter. Lizzie Lizzie and Pryces email address is email@example.com.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Finish up those lingering tasks so that you can then arrange to spend some time in quiet reflection. This will go a long way in restoring both your physical and spiritual energies. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A family situation could heat up and boil over unless you deal with it as soon as possible. Try to persuade other family members to work with you to help cool things down. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Cheer up, Kitty Cat! That low feeling will begin to ebb by midweek, and you should be back in the social swirl in time for the weekend. A longpostponed deal could be starting up again. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Going too fast and too far on too little knowledge could be risky. Best to slow down and check for any gaps in your information. Its what you dont know that could hurt you. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Trying to make peace among quarreling family members, friends or colleagues can be tough. Expect some resistance, maybe even some expressions of resentment. But stay with it. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Changing your mind doesnt have to be a problem once you realize that you might have good and sufficient cause to do so. Make your explanations clear and complete. Good luck. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) An unkept promise can be irksome and easily raise the Archers ire. But instead of getting into a confrontation, take time to check why someone you relied on came up short. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A new workplace distraction creates an unnecessary delay. The sooner you deal with it, the better for all concerned. A personal matter also should be attended to as soon as possible. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Once again, the Aquarians gift for applying both practical and creative methods to resolve a situation makes all the difference. Personal relationships thrive during the weekend. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A relationship appears to be losing its oncestrong appeal for reasons that might be different from what you think. An open and honest talk could lead to some surprising revelations. BORN THIS WEEK: Your life is bound by your belief that character counts more than anything else. On Oct. 13, 1792, the cornerstone is laid for a presidential residence in the capital city of Washington. In 1800, President John Adams became the first president to reside in the executive mansion, which soon became known as the White House. On Oct. 15, 1863, during the Civil War, the submarine C.S.S. Hunley sinks during a test run in Charleston Harbor, killing its inventor and seven crewmembers. The Hunley, propelled by a hand crank that drove the ships propeller, would later become the first combat submarine to sink an enemy warship. On Oct. 16, 1916, Pvt. Henry Farr of the British Expeditionary Force is executed for cowardice after he refuses to go into the frontline trenches. Farr was one of 306 British soldiers who were executed for cowardice. They likely suffered from severe shellshock. On Oct. 14, 1939, designer Ralph Lauren is born in New York. Lauren created the Chaps stonewashed jeans and faded work shirts designed to appear as if they were from the well-worn wardrobe of a hardworking Western rancher. On Oct. 19, 1958, in Brussels, Belgium, the Worlds Fair closes after visits by 42 million people. The U.S. and Soviet exhibition halls were directly across from one another. While the Soviet exhibit centered on the technological accomplishments, the U.S. focused on voting booths, fashions and home furnishings. Both lost to Czechoslovakia for best exhibit. On Oct. 17, 1974, President Gerald Ford explains to Congress that he gave Richard Nixon a full pardon for all offenses against the United States in order to put the tragic and disruptive scandal behind all concerned. Fords decision was condemned and is thought to have contributed to his failure to win the 1976 presidential election. On Oct. 18, 1988, Roseanne, a television sitcom about a blue-collar American family starring the comedian Roseanne Barr, premieres on ABC. Barrs portrayal of the loud, abrasive, overweight Roseanne Conner was a sharp contrast to the stereotypical TV housewife in the mold of Leave It to Beavers June Cleaver. It was British Prime Minister Winston Churchill who made the following sage observation: A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on. Play-Doh was originally marketed as a wallpaper cleaner. It wasnt until kids started using it as modeling material that the company saw its potential in the toy market. Those who study such things say that when bears, squirrels and other mammals hibernate, the flow of oxygen to their brains can drop by as much as 98 percent. Youve surely heard of the long-distance buses known as Greyhounds, but you might not be aware of the companys humble origins. In 1914, a car dealer named Carl Eric Wickman ran a car dealership in Minnesota. When business was slow, he used one of the unsold cars to offer rides between the towns of Alice and Hibbing to miners going to work. The idea was so profitable that Wickman opened long-distance routes within two years. He painted the vehicles gray in order to hide the road dust, prompting a hotel owner along one route to comment that the cars looked like greyhound dogs. Wickman liked the idea so much he started using the slogan Ride the Greyhounds, and the rest is business history. In 1955, just a few weeks before he was killed in a car crash, actor James Dean made a commercial aimed at teenagers. The subject? Auto safety. In the ad he says, Drive safely. The life you save may be mine. If youre like the average American, you drink only one-sixth as much wine as the average French citizen. Im living so far beyond my income that we may almost be said to be living apart. -E.E. Cummings THIS WEEK IN HISTORY THOUGHT FOR THE DAY STRANGE BUT TRUE

Yes, please. Soak a sponge in a shallow dish, and squirt it with lemon juice. Microwave for 30-45 seconds, and then use to scrub the interior of your microwave. If you have clinging stink, fill a glass bowl with 2 cups of water and add a half cup of baking soda. Microwave to a rolling boil, 3-5 minutes. Allow it to steam for 5 minutes and wipe out. -KF in Connecticut Fresh versus frozen in the seafood aisle: Unless youre at the docks, most seafood in the grocers fresh fish case is thawed from frozen. Always ask. Its much cheaper to buy frozen and thaw it yourself. A great idea for mini ice packs: Freeze ketchup packets you get from takeout food. They are great for icing small bumps or bug bites. Kids always breaking crayons? For rough little artists, heres a quick fix: Cut short lengths of plastic straws to fit over the crayon. Slip over and tape closed. It gives the crayon a little more structure and protects it from breaking when a child presses down to color with a flourish! If you need to keep your 1-year-old corralled in the bath, try using a laundry basket. The water flows in, but she has only so much room to roam. And it lessens the odds she could slip away from you to the other side of the tub. Always stay with baby from the first drop to the last! -WH in Texas Just after painting, I found that I had small dots of paint on my hands from the roller brush. I grabbed a bottle of olive oil that was on the counter and rubbed a generous amount in my hands. The paint drops came right off with a washcloth. -IL in Oregon NOW HERES A TIP Development City Year BuiltSquare FootageListing Price Selling Price Days On Market Quail West Naples 2014 4,155 $1,847,457 $1,746,285 179 Seaspray Subdivision Sanibel 1997 2,950 $1,595,000 $1,600,000 265 Anacapri Miromar Lakes2007 3,594 $1,699,000 $1,575,000 0 Shell Harbor Sanibel 1993 3,533 $1,495,000 $1,312,000 118 Beachview Country Club EstatesSanibel 2001 3,218 $1,099,000 $1,000,000 1100 Palm Isles Fort Myers Beach2010 3,644 $1,175,000 $997,560 51 Sanibel Estates Sanibel 1973 1,588 $985,000 $965,000 234 Cape Coral Cape Coral 2002 2,946 $849,900 $810,000 214 Deep Lagoon Estates Fort Myers 1982 1,588 $900,000 $800,000 153 Catalpa Cove Fort Myers 2001 2,480 $775,000 $755,000 19

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, run and have fun. If you would like to meet me, stop by Coral Vet in Fort Myers, near the corner of McGregor Boulevard and Cypress Lake Drive. I would love to have a visitor to play with. For more information about adopting Sox, call Pam at PAWS of Sanibel at 472-4823. Also, a very sweet, 6-month-old kitten named Sporty needs a home. She is a spayed, silver tiger stripe girl who loves to cuddle. She was found on the east end of Sanibel behind The Sporty Seahorse Shop (hence the name). She has been boarded at the vets office, so she is so ready to get into a real home. To adopt Sporty, call Pam at PAWS of Sanibel at 472-4823. Sporty Sox
