Through painting, works on paper and etched glass, ArtCalusa visually interprets the life and experiences of Floridas indigenous peoples, particularly the Calusa Indians through their contact with early European explorers. The exhibition also details the dramatic changes in Floridas environment since people first moved to Florida over 12,000 years ago. Exhibiting artists include Lucas Century, Merald Clark, Charles Dauray, continued on page 7 Sea Turtle Record Shattered On Sanibelby Jeff LysiakThe final sea turtle nesting statistics for this season are in, and Sanibel established a new record in 2014. According to Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) sea turtle program coordinator Kelly Sloan, this years total of 411 nests 110 on the east end and 301 on the west end shattered the islands previous high mark of 358 nests, established in 2000. In addition, the previous record for nests on the east end was 69 in 2012. The highlight of the season was definitely the record number of nests laid, said Sloan. There were no major storms this year, so very few of our nests washed away. Although there were some issues with coyote depredation, it was a very productive season overall. Sloan also noted that Captiva had 124 nests this year. On October 6, Sloan, her intern Shea Gibbs and more than a dozen sea turtle program volunteers showed up to witness the final nesting dig of the 2014 season. Nest #87, which was staked in early July on Sanibels east end, was due to be dug after 70 days.Despite digging the nest for more than 45 minutes, only taking a short break to take a photograph on the beach, their efforts were not rewarded with any emerging hatchlings.continued on page 3 Sea turtle program coordinator Kelly Sloan begins to dig the final nest of the season as a group of volunteers and passers-by look on photo by Jeff Lysiak Community Invited To 40th Anniversary Of IncorporationSanibel residents are invited to attend a reception celebrating the 40th anniversary of the City of Sanibels incorporation, to be held at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, November 4 at Sanibel City Hall, 800 Dunlop Road. The reception is being hosted by the City of Sanibel Historical Preservation Committee. Sanibel was incorporated in 1974 by a vote of the citizens. Cupcakes and cider will be served.

3 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 17, 2014 From page 1Sea Turtle Record Shattered On SanibelThe reality is that science isnt always perfect and we have to be non-biased in our assessment of each crawl, explained Sloa n. Our permit doesnt allow us to verify each nest, and sometimes the field signs are misleading, so sometimes rarely the tur tle fools us. In addition to the more than 130 volunteers who patrol the islands beaches every day throughout sea turtle nesting season, Slo an wanted to offer her thanks to Gibbs and several of her SCCF fellow employees including Kristie Anders, Dee Serage-Century and Joel Caouette for their efforts. Five new permittees were trained and added to the permit this year: Joan Rogers, Nancy Riley Diane Nietzel, Willow Bender and Linda Estep. Its also exciting that weve had four consecutive years of increasing nest counts, added Sloan. Sea turtles normally take a year off in between nesting seasons, so there is some natural fluctuation in nest numbers from year to year. Its possible that new recruits to the nesting population may be coming to Sanibel, which is why we havent seen the natural low years. The Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundations sea turtle program coordinator, staff and volunteers showed up to witness the final nesting dig of the 2014 season last Monday evening on Sanibels east end photos by Jeff Lysiak The final nest of the season was discovered and staked in early JulyEmail editorial copy to:

Gluten Free Options Serving Pizza & Wings Frozen Yogurt & So MUCH MORE! Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellWills, estates and probate, oh my! These words certainly bring dread into our hearts. Whether were dealing with a loved ones passing or preparing for our own, the hope is that everyone have an understanding of the five basic estate planning and advance directive documents that provide clear information at someones passing. One of Rotarys favorite attorneys on the island, Janet Strickland, P.A. and club Rotarian, spoke to us last Friday on a couple of these very matters. The documents she spoke about include living wills, HIPAA release, designation of health care surrogate, durable power of attorney, and last will and testament. A living will is the document that allows you to direct the withholding of artificial means to keep you alive when two doctors have certified that you are in a vegetative state or brain dead, and will not recover. Statements could also include nutrition and hydration instructions, quality-of-life statements, feeding tube directives, pain relief instructions, organ donations and even burial instructions. Why is this important? Well, because this document provides your family with an understanding of your wishes. This relieves them from making emotionally charged decision under duress and giving them peace of mind that the right thing is being done per your request. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act protects your medical privacy. The HIPAA Release document allows designated persons immediate access to your medical information, regardless of your capacity. How many of us have filled out these forms at the doctors office? I dare say, all of us have... and rightfully so. This protects you, but it also allows your named loved ones access to your medical records regarding your condition and treatment protocol. This is extremely important. The HIPAA Act prohibits your health care providers from releasing your health care information unless you have provided a HIPAA release form. Provide this document to your attorney and your health insurance provider. A designation of health care surrogate document allows you to designate a health care surrogate who can make health care decisions for you obtain your medical records and information if you are incapacitated and need assistance with such matters. This goes beyond the HIPPA information release; this names a person that can direct your medical care. Strickland did mention that if possible, this should be a person living close by. In some cases, decisions have to be made quickly. Provide this document to your attorney and your health insurance provider. A durable power of attorney form allows you to designate a person who is authorized by you to handle your financial matter, including when you become incapacitated or otherwise need assistance with your financial affairs. This is a very powerful document and is effective immediately so it should be stored in a safe place. Your attorneys office is best. A last will and testament allows you to direct what happens with your property when you die and who receives it. Now this is the document that can cause some real trouble. This is why you need a good estate-planning attorney and too complicated to go into in this column. Some side notes: Strickland made sure to tell us, When you put anyones name on your bank account (a joint account), that money is not part of your estate. When you have this kind of account and you die, the money in the account will automatically become the property of the other account holder. When it comes to your personal items, it is not good enough to just talk about who gets what but to formally list them in your will. There are many family issues that rear their ugly heads over these small items. Other estate planning documents can include revocable trusts, charitable trusts and irrevocable life insurance trust (ILITs). See an attorney; it will save a lot of heartache for everyone. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets at 7 a.m. every Friday at The Dunes Golf and Tennis Club, 949 Sand Castle Road.

Noting that members of the city council were only looking for a small stipend in an effort to reimburse out-of-pocket expenses they incur during off-island trips made on behalf of the city, Congress explained that the idea of compensating elected officials was brought up for discussion during the October 7 council meeting by Mayor Kevin Ruane. 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. That $50 meal allowance is the same if were attending a meeting in Washington, DC or in Orlando, said Congress. Ruane said last week that he brought the matter 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. Commission chairman Dr. Phillip Marks asked Congress whether Sanibels elected officials were seeking reimbursement for expenses rather than an increase in their stipend allowance. Weve just started to scratch the surface with this, Congress responded. A lot of people are kinda curious to see how this thing goes. Congress later added that he hoped a lot of citizens will attend the next council meeting on Tuesday, November 4 to offer their input on the topic. Im sure it will be greatly debated, he added. In other commission business, Dr. Marks requested to be excused from the November 25 meeting because he will be out of town. Fellow commissioner Chuck Ketteman asked planning director Jimmy Jordan to add a discussion regarding cancelling that meeting scheduled for two days before the Thanksgiving holiday to their October 28 agenda. Land Development Code Subcommittee Report Reviewedby Jeff LysiakFollowing Tuesdays planning commission session, the Land Development Code Review Subcommittee (LDCRS) heard the annual report on amendments made to the citys codes made during the past two years. Planning director Jimmy Jordan noted in his report that during fiscal years 201213 and 2013-14, the LDCRS and planning commission focused on several planning and zoning issues, which were addressed through specific amendments to the Land Development Code to ensure ongoing conformance with the Sanibel Plan within areas defined by LDC Section 82-341. According to Jordan, amendments made during the two-year span included: Inter and Intra-connectivity standards for providing access between properties and to the shared use path The phasing of preliminary plats approvals for major subdivisions Legislation to regulate floating dock platforms preempted from permitting by the State of Florida Legislation requiring the installation of reflective tape wrapping on telecommunications towers greater than 75 feet above ground level To allow pervious brick pavers installed within the driveways and parking areas of single-family, duplex and triplex to be treated as 100 percent pervious To allow for an increase in the room size of one bedroom resort housing unit to redevelop up to 600 square feet of habitable floor area Update the list of permitted uses within the commercial district and providing a process to consider new uses that are similar in nature and intensity to those uses that are listed in the code A new provision allowing minor nonstructural alterations and modifications to the rooflines of lawfully existing structures devoted to a nonconforming use Requirements, procedures and standards for maintaining and securing distressed buildings and structures Jordan also noted that the LDCRS report would be submitted for the city council to approve at their next meeting, scheduled for Tuesday, November 4. Citys Permitting Software Being Streamlinedby Jeff LysiakOn Tuesday, Sanibels Permitting Process Review Subcommittee heard a status report on the recent renovations to the citys permitting software. During a PowerPoint presentation made by City Manager Judie Zimomra and staff members Elaine Fannon and Steve Chaipel, the ongoing updates being made to the electronic files will streamline the permitting process, offering additional transparency between the city and the public. Fannon explained that in sorting through the more than 6,000 parcels contained within the city system, staff have corrected and updated information for over 1,000 of those parcels. As a result, the current system now contains clean parcel data, she noted. Also, regarding conversion of the data which dates back to files created when the city was incorporated in 1974 Fannon said that data fields will be mapped to the new system structure, adding that staff is about 10 percent of the way through this process. We wanted to make sure all of our data was cleaned before we moved on to the next step, which is the conversion of data, said Fannon. Setting up the renovated system, a team comprised of members of the citys continued on page 11

A system test of all codes, fees and data will then take place, to be followed by city-wide training on the new permitting software. Software enhancements include project-based with applicable permits and inspections attached; one-numbering system resulting in a seamless process between the planning and building departments; a single screen with all applicable information for each particular project; the ability to inquire on any parcel number and view all applicable city permits, assessments and bills on one screen, and; all permit fees payable on the citys website.Dr. Phillip Marks inquired about the security of making payments via the citys website. Fannon responded that a second party is contracted to handle that security, so no vital information (including personal details, bank and credit card numbers) is directly accessible through the city portal.

John was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee on June 4, 1923 to Helen and John Ensign, the eldest of three brothers (James and Charles, who preceded him in death). After graduating from Chattanooga Central High School in 1942, John joined the U.S. Navy as a V-12 officer candidate during World War II. Following the war, John graduated from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia and then entered Union Theological Seminary in New York to study for the ministry. During seminary, John met Ruth Singley, an art student at Temple Tyler. They married in 1946. Following seminary, John served at the Presbyterian Church in New Hope, North Carolina and helped build a church camp on the adjacent grounds. John also served the Efland Presbyterian Church during that time. In 1956, John and Ruth were asked by the Presbyterian denomination to build a progressive camp in Hanover Presbytery to make integrated camping a reality. Camp Hanover became John and Ruths lifework. With the support of the Presbytery, local churches and many individuals, Camp Hanover was built on a 78-acre site which John grew to 600 acres near Mechanicsville, Virginia. The camp was so successful John and Ruth wrote a seminal book on Christian camping, Camping Together As Christians (1958), that became a standard manual for Christian camps around the world. The camp was racially and economically innovative in that no money could be used while at camp, creating an atmosphere where all campers were equal. Divided into mixed gender groups, campers made their own decisions about meals and activities, with hiking and canoe trips a mainstay of camp experience. John and Camp Hanover were early proponents of sustainable gardens and composting farm to table and back. During his later years at Camp Hanover, John served as Executive Presbyter for Hanover Presbytery, leading it through the merger of the Southern Presbyterian and Northern Presbyterian Church, now known as the Presbyterian Church USA. Ruth and John taught at the Presbyterian School of Christian Education in both camping and, for Ruth, Christian Art. John served on the national board of the American Camping Association, which set the health and safety standards for youth camping. Everyone who met John remembers his active conversational style and encyclopedic memory. After retiring and moving into Richmond, Ruth continued her career as an artist until her death in 2008. John and Ruth loved to travel in the winter, especially to their beloved Sanibel Island, where they spent longer and longer times in the sun walking the beaches and collecting shells. John was a master storyteller of the southern style, best heard around an open fire. John is survived by four children (Jacque Ensign, Martha Ensign Johnson (Don), Stephen Ensign (Corbin) and Josephine Ensign (Peter). He is also survived by nine grandchildren and four great-grandchildren: (Nathan and Calla Williamson and son Tucker, Ryan and Laurel Williamson, Rachel Williamson, Isaac and Anna Johnson and daughters Elise and Luca, Luke and Kelly Johnson, Elizabeth and Jeff Camozzi and daughter Ella, Julian Reese and Sarah Ensign, Perry Ensign and Jonathan Bowdler) and numerous nieces and nephews. In lieu of flowers, memorials can be given to the Camp Hanover Scholarship Fund or Ginter Park Presbyterian Church. John Ensigns Memorial Service will be held at Ginter Park Presbyterian Church in Richmond, Virginia on Saturday, November 1 at 11 a.m. OBITUARY From page 4Historical Village Staff Prepares For Re-Openingtraining for our docents; A Homesteaders Christmas, which is new this year; Twilight Talks; Calusa Day; Florida Lighthouse Day; and a major event on March 19.

He went on to create many memorable marketing and promotional campaigns for Lifesavers, Nabisco, Beechnut and Carefree Sugarless Gum after forming his own company, WR Proctor Associates. Beginning with Im a Beechnut and Bubble Yum bubble gum blowing contests to state fairs, where one could Ride Free with Carefree, his work was praised by all for its breakthrough creativity. Proctor also served on the board of governors for the Westminster Kennel Club in New York and the Pirates Playhouse in Sanibel. His greatest love was for his music.

The film is set in Germany during World War II. Death serves as the knowing narrator for the tale, which is a bit of a masterstroke. He is an irritating know-it-all who regularly interrupts the story to comment obliquely on human nature and mortality. The central figure is Liesel (Sophie Nelisse), a spunky young heroine who, when first introduced in 1938, is on the run with a fugitive mother and a little brother. Soon after, mom vanishes and Liesel is taken in by a good-hearted couple, kindly Hans (Geoffrey Rush) and his wife, Rosa (Emily Watson). A soft heart beats under her crusty surface. A contradiction between a veneer of innocence and the realities of Nazism and the Holocaust is a signature characteristic of the years-spaning film, which observes traumatic historical events through Liesels eyes. Her foster father teaches her to read after her schoolmates taunt her for illiteracy. After witnessing a book-burning rally, she borrows, then steals, volumes from the home of the local burgermeister. Memorizing what she reads, she distracts fearful Germans huddled in a bomb shelter with her recitations. The Book Thief is a riveting, thought-provoking and powerful film. Next up on October 27 is Haute Cuisine, a food lovers movie about acontinued on page 23


15 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 17, 2014 Community HelpersDuring the month of October, the Childrens Education Center of the Islands studies the theme of Community Helpers. These people are most notably our policemen, firemen, doctors, postal workers and (the most popular) garbage men! However, on Sanibel, we like to include some other community helpers that are more specific to our environment. This week, we enjoyed a visit from Mark Thompson of SCCF to tell us how he helps our community... of animals. Thompson shared with us lots of exciting information about horseshoe crabs. He taught us that they come out to the beach on a full moon and dig their nests to lay eggs. These eggs feed many different animals. He taught us that they have been around since the age of dinosaurs, they swim upside down and their pinchers dont pinch, they just close and tickle. But the most exciting thing we learned was that they have blue blood. The children could even touch live horseshoe crabs and test out their pinchers that dont pinch. CECI teacher Ms Joy stands proud with her son, Yuan, and her husband, Mark Thompson, with a vial of the very cool blue horseshoe crab blood Riley Sullivan and Elton Von Wowern show everyone that the horseshoe crabs are gentle creatures that flip themselves over with their tail and tickle with their pinchers Sanibel Church Of Christ Celebrates Preschool StaffThe congregation at Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ commissioned its preschool staff at Sanibel Christian Preschool during worship on September 21. Preschool director and VPK 4-year-old class teacher Laura Miltner, 3-year-old class teacher Ana Abella and 2-year-old class teacher Lora Lea Plummer were celebrated during the service along with the preschool. Members then visited with the staff after the service, sharing in what is upcoming in the school year and ways that members of the church could take part. Sanibel Christian Preschool, a ministry of the Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ, began in August 2013 as part of the churchs continuing support of the community. Located within the church building, the preschool features small class sizes that allow individual attention to each childs needs. The school offers a warm, welcoming environment for children of all backgrounds to learn and grow as they experience the congregations vision that every child is a beloved child of God. The preschool offers introductory fine arts and classical music programs that aid in the development of skills beyond the arts into all aspects of life. For more information about Sanibel Christian Preschool, contact director Laura Miltner or Associate Pastor Deb Kunkel at 472-0497.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 17, 2014 20 Schools And More Schoolsby Capt. Matt MitchellFishing around the massive schools of bait just off the beaches was a great option this week. East winds most days made for calm conditions gulfside. Anywhere from 100 yards off the beach out to a couple of miles, feeding birds and breaking fish where easy to locate. Giant schools of ladyfish, bluefish, Spanish mackerel and jacks where found between Sanibel Lighthouse to the south end of Fort Myers Beach, then fishing north from Knapps Point to Redfish Pass were more of the same along with big schools of Bonita. Catching these hard, fast running Bonita is some of my favorite fishing of the fall. Its just such a change from the usual day to day fishing we do in the sound. These members of the tuna family are crazy strong for their size and just so aggressive. They can be seen busting bait on the surface from a long way off and its just a matter of casting into the feeding fish to hook up. Run and gun style fishing of these schools of feeding Bonita is very fast paced action and just a blast, with everyone on board hooking up when you run into these feeding fish. Soft plastic jigs on strong hook jig heads and heavy spoons both caught lots of Bonita. Casting through the breaking fish and retrieving the bait as fast as possible was all it took as you watched them chase it down. First runs of 100-yard-plus are common so a smooth drag and 200 yards of line on the reel are a must. Many of these first Bonita of the fall season are over 10 pounds with a few pushing right around 15 pounds. Most clients have never seen any fishing action like this before as the water just comes alive with boiling fish and bait. These fish are such great visual action and a favorite of fly fishermen. Snook action in the passes around the full moon was also going off this week. Though most of the fish where short of slot size, they certainly made up for it in shear numbers. The best bite came on the first part of the incoming tide as small fry bait and glass minnows got sucked into the pass. Brown clouds of this little bait had the snook blitzing on it. Watching these snook blow up on the bait as they gorge themselves is not something we see every day. Freelined shiners pitched into the same areas resulted in constant hook-ups. During one trip this week, we caught snook on almost every cast for well over an hour. Chumming live shiners back in the mangrove feeder creeks during low water periods was also another option for catching lots of snook. Most of these snook are on the small side but non-stop snook action all over the place is never a bad thing. Larger snook have been a little harder to come by, with what seems like only one big one here and there. Redfish action for me this week came one of two ways; either finding a big school out on the open flat and catching them on every cast until they dropped off into deeper water and disappeared or catching just a couple while mangrove or pass fishing for snook. The big schools are still around but, during windy periods, can be a little harder to locate. Cooling water temperatures have our fishing just going off with both fish and anglers enjoying the start of the annual bait migration. Keeping the clients rods bent just keeps getting easier as more and more bait and the migratory fish that feed on it are moving to the south as winter approaches. October is all about variety!!!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 Send Us Your Fish TalesThe Island Sun would like to hear from anglers about their catches.

21 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 17, 2014 CROW Case Of The Week: Great Horned Owlby Patricia MolloyThe great horned owl (Bubo virginianus) sometimes referred to as a tiger owl or hoot owl is an easily recognizable bird. Wellknown for its piercing yellow eyes and ear tufts that resemble horns, the majestic raptor has an intense beauty. But its fascinating adaptations make it truly remarkable. It flies silently. While the wings of most birds make a wooshing sound in flight, the great horned owl is perfectly silent. Its feathers are softer than most birds, allowing the large bird to sneak up on its prey without warning. It has superior hearing. This owl can hear a tiny mouse step on a twig from a remarkable distance of 75 feet. A hearty eater, an individual owl consumes a large quantity of rodents in its lifetime, which helps keep populations under control. Its eyes are larger than those of humans. The eyes of these owls are so large that they are unable to move them from side to side. As a result, they must turn their heads in order to look around. Great horned owls are capable of turning their heads 270 degrees in any direction. Late last month, a great horned owl was admitted to CROW from neighboring Cape Coral. He came in very down and depressed and thin. No real abnormalities were noted on his physical exam except a little talon lesion on his foot, explained Brittany Stevens, DVM intern. Upon further testing, however, it was discovered that the owl was experiencing respiratory distress. Dr. Brittany suspects that the owl was suffering from Aspergillosis, a fungus that can affect humans and mammals but is seen primarily in birds. To combat the lung infection, the patient was given antibiotics and an antifungal. The owl was so sick that it wasnt eating on its own and had to be force-fed several times per day. Over the course of a week, the patient began to regain its strength and slowly began eating on its own. After approximately two weeks of treatment at the wildlife clinic, the great horned owl had fully recovered from the infection. After making the long trip back to Cape Coral in CROWs specially-equipped van, the owl quickly leapt from its carrier and flew to its favorite tree-top perch. If you find a sick or injured wild bird, mammal or reptile, immediately contact CROW at 472-3644. If you are unable to bring the animal to the Sanibel wildlife clinic, you may be directed to one of the nine domestic veterinarian clinics it has partnered with in Lee County. CROW volunteers make daily excursions to these facilities and other locations as needed. CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Inc.) is a non-profit wildlife hospital providing veterinary care for native and migratory wildlife from our local area.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 17, 2014 22 Shell Of The WeekGiant Tritonby Jos H. Leal, PhD, The BaileyMatthews National Shell Museum Science Director & CuratorThe giant triton, Monoplex parthenopeus (Salis Marschlins, 1793), may be occasionally found on the local beaches. It is a large gastropod that may reach six inches in size. The giant triton, which has an extremely bristly, hairy periostracum (the outer shell layer of mollusks), should not be confused with the hairy triton, which is a smaller species that does not occur on the barrier islands of Southwest Florida. The giant triton has very broad distribution in the tropical and subtropical regions of the world. This large distribution is facilitated by the presence of a long-lasting, drifting larval stage in the species: Giant triton larvae may be transported across large oceanic expanses by currents, in a process that enables the colonization of distant shores by the species. Learn more about the giant triton at http:// cfm?id=59 Shell Museum Events Pearls and Chocolate for a Cause: Create an elegant 78-inch freshwater pearl and Swarovski crystal necklace (or two smaller ones) while sipping wine, sampling hors doeuvres and chocolates.

25 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 17, 2014 Plant SmartWashington Fan Palmby Gerri ReavesThe Washington, or Mexican, fan palm is a desert palm native to northern Mexico and Baja California. Its ability to grow as tall as 100 feet make it unsuited to the average South Florida residential landscape. In good growing conditions, this tree develops a full rounded canopy. The accordion-pleated palmate leaves are up to five feet across. Petioles, or leaf stalks, of up to six feet long have reddish bases and sharp teeth. Long inflorescences of creamy flowers can be as long as 12 feet and extend beyond the leaves. Flowers are followed by small black berries. The slender light gray trunk tapers from a stout base. Sub-tropical conditions in South Florida are not ideal for this species, so skimpy foliage and potassium-deficiency often result. When the palm is young, the thicker trunk and fuller foliage can be attractive, but as the fast-growing plant ages, it can lose that robusta look. The shaggy skirt of old fronds that some trees retain gives it another common name, petticoat palm. Depending on the homeowners preference, the skirt might an interesting characteristic or just another maintenance problem. Another reason to forego this palm? It is listed as a category-II invasive species by the Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council. Moreover, unlike native palms that have evolved to survive hurricanes, the Washington in known for breaking or uprooting in storms. Because it towers over other palms, it is also prone to lightning strikes as well. A susceptibility to other diseases is also a concern. If storm-resistance, low-maintenance and benefit to wildlife are important to you, consider Floridas native palms or a Florida-friendly species. Sources: National Audubon Field Guide to Florida,, and Plant Smart explores the plant life of South Florida and sustainable landscape practices.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 17, 201426 Rauschenberg Exhibit Opens At FSW GalleryThe Bob Rauschenberg Gallery at Florida SouthWestern State College (FSW) is presenting the first solo Robert Rauschenberg exhibition since the artists passing in 2008. Rauschenberg: China/America Mix was inspired by Rauschenbergs visits to China in the 1980s where he completed work on a number of collages and mounted the Rauschenberg Overseas Culture Interchange (ROCI) exhibition at the National Gallery in Beijing. His ROCI/China show was open for less than three weeks and attracted more than 300,000 visitors. The upcoming show Rauschenbergs 16th one-man show at FSW since the gallery was founded in 1979 will open on what wouldve been the artists 89th birthday, October 22, and features art that hasnt been publicly viewed in years. When China/America Mix opens it will mark the first installation of Rauschenbergs monumental 100-foot long Chinese Summerhall photograph in over a decade, said Jade Dellinger, director of the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery at FSW. His affect still looms large around the globe, but this is particularly evident in China. To this day, the most recognized Chinese artists acknowledge his great influence and his broader impact. China/America Mix is part of the gallerys fall 2014 tribute to the life and legacy of Robert Rauschenberg, as well as a celebration of his close relationship with FSW. There is no better way to celebrate our continued dedication to the arts in Southwest Florida then to host a solo exhibition of an artist who shared such a close relationship with FSW, said Dr. Jeff Allbritten, FSW president. The exhibitions lead sponsor is FineMark National Bank & Trust in Fort Myers, a long-time supporter of FSW by providing over $100,000 in programs and scholarships. Additional support is provided by the Stanton Storer Embrace the Arts Foundation and Norman Love Confections. A pre-opening lecture on Rauschenberg in China will be presented at the Rush Library Auditorium on the Thomas Edison (Lee) Campus from 6 to 7 p.m. by Dr. Donald Staff, founder of the University of South Floridas Graphicstudio and artistic director of ROCI. Musical performances are also planned by longtime friends Dickie Landry, Kat Epple and Sonic Combine. Events at the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery at FSW are free and open to the public. Seating is first-come, first-serve at Dr. Donald Staffs lecture. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Closed on Sundays and holidays.

NEWSPAPERSanibel&CaptivaIslands VOL. 22, NO. 17 SANIBEL & CAPTIVA ISLANDS, FLORIDA OCTOBER 17, 2014 B BSECTION Sanibel Post Office Refurbishment Under Wayby Jeff LysiakMany islanders may have noticed that the appearance of the Sanibel Post Office on Tarpon Bay Road has changed a bit over the past few months. Thats because the facility, originally constructed in the early 1980s, is undergoing a facelift of sorts to both the building and surrounding landscape. According to U.S. Postal Service spokesperson Enola C. Rice, invasive air potato plants have been removed from the Sanibel Post Office property. Several Australian pine trees located near the front of the parking lot were removed due to shallow roots and the likelihood of the trees potentially falling on the building and/or vehicles. Our new landscaping will include native plants, said Rice. We are working with the citys Natural Resources Management representative and the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation to ensure ordinances are followed. In addition to eradicating invasive plants and overgrowth, the facility was recently powerwashed. Over two days last week, the exterior of the post office was painted a rich brown color, so to blend in with Sanibels native wildlife and foliage. We are excited about the improvements being made and thank our customers for their patience as we beautify the post office, added Rice. The Sanibel Post Office received a fresh coat of exterior paint last week Several invasive plant species, including Australian pine trees and air potato plants, have been removed from the property photos by Jeff Lysiak Wheelchairs Delivered To TrinidadJohn Danner, senior pastor of the Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ, John Grey of John Grey Painting, along with Cape Coral resident Don Thomas, and Zachary Davis, Danners grandson, recently traveled to the island of Trinidad. The goal of their journey was to distribute some of the 110 wheelchairs shipped there as a result of the Wheels for Wheels Fort Lauderdale to Key West fundraising bike ride Danner and Davis participated in in August 2013. The 195-mile ride happened over three consecutive days in late July and early August. The effort was co-sponsored by the Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club and Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ. The travelers were hosted by the Charleyville-Felicity Rotary Club. Trinidad is located just off the shores of Venezuela. It has long been the home of Arawak and Carib Indians and though few in num ber,still is. The group stayed in downtown Chaguanas.

3B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 17, 2014 Poets Corner selected by Tanya HochschildMonets Water Gardenby Tanya Hochschild Monets souvenir to us a spectacle within elliptical spaces; Two oval rooms of the Muse de lOrangerie. To return again, to walk once more, as if over the Japanese Bridge in the air of Giverny; to be surrounded by waterlilies and willows. Enfolded by les Nympheas, lilypads, Afloat, as they are, in the gentle pond Flat leaves lie heavy on the water Rise and fall with the ponds gentle sway. Light glistens through the garden Where every day, Monet with his brush composed reflected light onto a canvas more lasting than the garden itself. Venice In The Rain Gondolas bob, ride against each other, reined in to piers, chairs empty in all the squares, while rain washes against peach and ocher buildings. Church bells peal, cause pigeons to lift off helter-skelter, find shelter under cornices. Leonardo lurks in the clouds, Titian, high and dry in the Frari church, doges quiet in their crypts. The four cavalli cavort in St. Marks, enjoy the trickle through their manes. The winged lion purrs, stirs a lonely tourist, who looks up. Florence The flaming palette of the late afternoon dips into the Arno which carries it to the Ponte Vecchio bridge Here, gods are in the niches. Our ears pressed as to a lute to hear Florences song. Tomorrow we meet the Medicis. Rome Pauline, sister of Napoleon, she of harmony and poise, Where Apollo forever chases Daphne And where Bernini captures them both Just as Daphne sprouts leaves, bark and begins To turn into a laurel tree. She, not wanting Apollos love or Cupids amusement, beseeches her father, god of the river for help and he turns her into a tree. Berninis makes marble As malleable as wax, the two will run through the Borghese Palace. Tanya Hochschild is member of a Sanibel Writers Group, has participated in Artpoems and Writers Reads on the island, and had two books published. Symphony Annual MeetingThe Southwest Florida Symphony will hold its annual meeting on Wednesday, October 22 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Stroemer & Company, located at 14030 Metropolis Avenue, Suite 200 in Fort Myers. Those who have contributed a minimum of $100 to the Southwest Florida Symphony during its 2013-14 fiscal year are eligible to vote, but the general public is invited to attend. Reservations to attend are strongly suggested and may be made by calling the Southwest Florida Symphony administrative office at 418-0996. In addition to the wealth of good news the symphony has to report during this years annual meeting, representatives from the American Federation of Musicians will be present to ratify its three-year labor agreement with the Southwest Florida Symphony. The symphony reached a tentative agreement on a labor contract with its musicians in August. After two days of negotiations between orchestra management and the American Federation of Musicians Negotiating Committee, talks came to a positive conclusion with both sides walking away very satisfied with the outcome. This collaborative effort is a major step in moving the orchestra forward toward a brighter future with the help of its employees and provides labor peace for the next three seasons.

4B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 17, 2014 From page 1BWheelchairs Delivered To Trinidadwas full of produce ranging from avocados to papayas. Many of the vendors bagged their goods, which included a wide variety of hot peppers. Butchers hacked away at pork, beef and chicken. Pigs face could be purchased for soup and there was a large variety of fish for sale. The group toured the capital city Port of Spain, which has the largest traffic roundabout in the world. Local Rotarians hosted the Floridians at several home parties and dinners and also led tours of various Hindu and cultural sites. The highlight of the trip, according to Dr. Danner, was the distribution of the wheelchairs. The recipients ranged from a young man who had been paralyzed at the age of three in a car accident to an elderly woman who was a double amputee. One little girl who had outgrown her wheelchair was turning it in for a larger one. The wheelchairs were paid for by the funds raised by the bike ride through the Wheelchair Foundation. An additional 100 wheelchairs have been sent to Guatamala.

LARC, Inc. promotes and provides opportunities in the communities for Lee County residents with developmental disabilities to achieve independent and responsible lifestyles. LARC provides a few field trips throughout the year, but this is the fifth year weve come to Ding Darling and Tarpon Bay and the LARC members absolutely love it, said event organizer Tom Hoover. The visit consisted of three parts. Tarpon Bay Explorers, the concession to the refuge, first provided a tram tour along Wildlife Drive led by seasoned naturalists Steve and Donna Yetsko. The mullet were jumping, the raccoons were climbing and the members were inquisitive. They were a great group, said Donna Yetsko. After the tram ride, the members and volunteers were brought back to Tarpon Bay for a waterfront lunch.

6B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 17, 2014 Last summer Patti and I along with another couple we are friends with travelled to Portland Oregon, exploring that wonderful region of the Pacific Northwest. While there, we all took the opportunity to white-water raft the White Salmon River, just across the Columbia River in the State of Washington. The White Salmon winds its way down a narrow tree-canopied canyon, making it a Class IV rapid that will take your breath away both in its beauty and ferocity. As we approached the end of the days run, our guide explained that theres a 12-foot waterfall that we could either portage around or shoot in the raft. After the four of us decided that wed like to try to shoot the rapid rather than walk around it, our guide instructed that wed have to paddle very hard until the last second, at which time he would yell All in! Then, all of us would have to dive into the middle of the raft until we reached the bottom of the falls. When I inquired what chance we had of all making it through the falls without getting ejected out of the raft he replied with an evil grin, about 50-50! I tugged on my life-vest to make sure it was secure, and shot Patti a smile. She seemed calm, as did our friends, but we were all a bit nervous inside. I will tell you that it was a real adventure. In the few seconds that it took the raft to descend the 12 feet, it felt like we were all enveloped in a thundering wall of water. The impact at falls bottom felt as if the raft and all of us were well under water before we sprang to the top, miraculously all intact and still secure in the vessel. We whooped with joy and high-fived our paddles together in celebration. Other rafts werent so lucky, as the river poured several people into the basins cold water outside of their rafts. Everyone was fished out OK, with smiles on their faces and a new story to tell family and friends. So how does this apply to estate planning aside from the fact that we better have had our wills up-to-date before plunging down the waterfall? Well, Ill tell you. The waterfall is actually a good metaphor for a pour over will that you may have heard of if you have a revocable living trust as a part of your estate plan. Many are surprised to learn that wills remain an integral part of an estate plan even when you have a trust. I thought a trust replaces the will. I hear often. The trust does replace the will sort of. For the trust to fully replace a will, no assets can remain in the individual name of a decedent they must all be transferred to the trust before death in order to avoid the probate process. But what happens if an asset or two is left out of the trust inadvertently? In that case, the pour over will catches the asset and pours it into the trust much like the waterfall pours into the river basin. Those assets will still have to be probated under the will to get them into the trust. So you can think of the pour over will as a safety net, catching assets that should have been put into the revocable trust during lifetime but werent, but ensuring that those assets are distributed pursuant to the trust. Its not the end of the world if a few assets have to be probated under a pour over will. If the total value of those assets is less than $75,000 then only a Summary Probate Administration is usually necessary. The Summary Probate is an abbreviated administration that doesnt take a whole lot of time or expense. If you happen to travel to Portland take a drive out the Columbia River Gorge (and see the many magnificent waterfalls along the way and go to Hood River Oregon. Cross the bridge over the Columbia River where you can shoot the White Salmon River, and ask for George at Wet Planet Rafting Company. He was our excellent guide. Tell him that Craig sent you but before you raft the falls make sure that you have transferred all of your assets to your trust and that your pour over will is ready just in case! Craig R. Hersch.

From page 5BLARC Members Tour Tarpon BaySeafood Grille, while watermelon and ice cream was supplied by Baileys General Store. Intermittently, members were also taken to the aquarium Touch Tank to discuss the wide variety of marine life that lives on the bottom of the Tarpon Bay estuary. They were very excited to see sea horses, sea stars, lightning whelks and horseshoe crabs up close and personal. After stomachs were full and faces were smiling, the members lined up to board the cruise ship, Explorer III, to explore the calm waters of Tarpon Bay and continue to learn about the ecology of the mangrove estuary. The manatee gods were with us today, explained Steve Yetsko. A few manatees were showing off by the mouth of the bay and the members were thrilled. The group was hootin and hollerin when they got back to the dock, said Wendy Schnapp, owner and manager of Tarpon Bay Explorers.

8B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 17, 2014 Everblades Open 17th Season Having Drawn 3.3 Million Fansby Ed FrankThere were plenty of doubters back in 1998 when Craig Brush and his partners Peter Karmanos and Thomas Thewes founded the Florida Everblades minor league hockey team. The newly opened Germain Arena in Estero was home ice to the fledgling team that many thought would not draw enough hockey fans to survive. How wrong they were. This weekend, the Everblades open their 17th season at Germain Arena hosting the South Carolina Stingrays Friday at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday at 7 p.m. In the previous 16 seasons, the Everblades had drawn 3.3 million fans in nearly 600 regular season games with an average attendance of 6,036 per game in the 7,181-seat Germain Arena. The team has placed in the top three of ECHL attendance in 10 of their 16 seasons, ranking first overall five times. Florida also has led the post-season Kelly Cup Playoff attendance six times. And most importantly, the Everblades have advanced to post-season play in 15 of their 16 seasons winning the league-title Kelly Cup in 2012 and earning a chapter in ECHL history by being the only team to advance to the Kelly Cup finals two years in a row 2004 and 2005. Youll unlikely find any doubters today on the popularity of hockey in Southwest Florida. Brush remains as president and general manager of the club, overseeing all aspects of the team and the arena. His ongoing, seasoned leadership is a major factor in the success of the Florida Everblades. When the puck drops Friday for the start of the 2014-15 season, Coach Greg Poss starts his fifth season behind the bench. He is only the fourth head coach in Everblades history. Just a few days ago, The ECHL expanded to 28 teams when the league board of governors approved the merger with the Central Hockey League adding seven teams, the Allen Americans, Brampton Beast, Missouri Mavericks, Quad City Mallards, Rapid City Rush, Tulsa Oilers and Wichita Thunder. These are some very good markets from the CHL, Brush said. It fills in the middle of the country void where we didnt have representation before. Because the merger was approved less than two weeks prior to league play, the seven new members will play mostly amongst themselves this season as both league schedules already had been completed. Two current ECHL teams, Las Vegas and Reno, are dormant dues-paying members with options to return for the 201516 season. Their addition would bring the ECHL to its maximum membership of 30, the same as the National Hockey League and the American Hockey League. Following the season-opening contest this weekend, the Everblades will host the Orlando Solar Bears next Friday at 7:30 p.m. at Germain. Florida split a pair of pre-season games with Orlando last weekend. In addition to South Carolina and Orlando, Greenville, Gwinnett and Florida comprise the ECHL South Division the same as last season. Volunteers Needed for CME Group Tour Championship The best women golfers in the world will compete November 18 to 23 at the Tiburon Golf Club in Naples and volunteers are still needed for the prestige seasonending event. Volunteering is a great way to experience the excitement firsthand from inside the ropes, said Gail Graham, tournament director. All volunteers receive a golf shirt, hat or visor, four daily tickets, free lunch, parking and tournament grounds access all week. The fee is $65.

11B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 17, 2014 Sanibel 8-Ball Pool LeagueSeason StarterTop teams and players from last season showed no signs of rust from the long summer layoff as the eighth year of the Sanibel 8-Ball Pool League kicked off its 23-week season Monday night at American Legion Post 123.

The bike will be raffled off November 1, so stop by the Lazy I or Lazy II to register to win Local Artists Share DiversityThis month at Sanibel Public Library, three artists exhibit a shared love of diverse subject matter. Kathleen Taylor, James Bird and Jaye Boswell have paintings displayed through November 3. The artists employ their skills painting outside, or plein air, as well as in portrait and home studios. The exhibit balances portraits, still life and landscapes in a variety of mediums. James C. Bird, currently vice-president of the Sanibel-Captiva Art League, grew up in Arkansas and has been painting for many years. He recalls he won a state-wide art contest with a watercolor painting of an arrangement of gladiolus at the age of 9. Bird specializes in and is noted for his sensitive watercolor portraits. He delights in doing portraits of older people to bring out their character and facial characteristics using the power of shading in bright Florida sunlight. He also finds inspiration in Florida landscapes, painting scenes of life around Sanibel. Kathleen Taylor, the current president of the Sanibel-Captiva Art League, began her art studies in the early 1970s during painting holidays with her mother who was an artist. Her work has been exhibited in many juried shows in both Florida and Massachusetts. She said, Watercolors are my favorite medium. I love the spontaneity, the natural looseness and mingling of colors. Taylor is married to Bruno Notari from Italy, and now paints in Italy a couple of months each year. Her watercolors from recent travels in Italy are currently on exhibit. Taylor is also a member of the Fort Myers Beach Art Association and the Falmouth Artist Guild. Jaye Boswells whimsical paintings are presented with remarkable detail and bright colors. Boswell graduated from the University of Miami with a bachelors degree in art education. For 22 years, she taught art at The Sanibel School. Lee County named her 2004 Visual Arts Teacher of the year. During the 1989-1990 school year, Boswell combined art and environmental education and had her students draw ducks in a wildlife setting. From this class project, the National Duck Stamp project emerged. Boswell believes in the strong connection between art and nature and that is evident in her pen and ink, watercolor and acrylic paintings. She designs greeting cards, illustrates books and creates many original, hand-painted items which she donates to worthy causes. Information about hours and activities at the library are available at www.sanlib. org. Sanibel-Captiva Art League members paint outside every Thursday at various locations. A portrait studio is available on Monday afternoons January through March at the Sanibel Public Library. Visitors are welcome to participate and can go to www. for times and locations of paint-outs and activities. Art lovers should also visit the BIG ARTS website for art instruction and gallery exhibits which include the Sanibel-Captiva Art League sponsored Art Council of Southwest Florida annual juried show in the Phillips Gallery December 4 through January 10.

19B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 17, 2014 School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My 8-year-old son has started saying that he cant do hard things. Hell say that when he has challenging homework or even a difficult chore at home. This is so upsetting to me. I want my son to be able to accept that some things are hard to do and to face them. How can I help him with this? Luis C., Cape Coral, Florida Luis, To want to avoid hard things is human nature but we all want strong and confident children so we must teach them to have this mindset. You can teach your son to develop inner strength as you help him move from avoidance to acceptance when he encounters a challenge. This is a process and takes time. Children will respond to the hard things in their lives in one of the following three ways: avoidance, acceptance, or anticipation according to social worker Annabella Hagen and provides the following ideas for parents to employ when their children are faced with a difficult task: Remember always to validate and acknowledge your childs feelings. Show support but do not overprotect. Allow your children to try their best. Provide minimal help, and let them take the lead. Do not threaten or bribe your children in order to get them to do something hard. These tactics only work temporarily. Remember that when your children believe they need you and you liberate them, their dependence on you becomes stronger each time. Take small steps to gradually step away from the rescuing you may tend to do. Tell your children that you have confidence in their ability. Another easy and important way to help children accept challenge is by telling stories from your own life. Write down the lessons youve learned from your own challenges and simplify them. Be ready to share those stories as needed. You are the most important role model in your sons life right now. What do you do when difficult situations happen in your life? What attitude do you display? Let your son know (within reason) if you are facing something challenging and talk about the coping skills you need to use to resolve the issue. Keep a positive attitude. Of course we dont want our children to be worried about their future but challenges are going to happen, and neither you nor your son should be surprised. When difficulties appear and you and your son can be ready for them by identifying them and discussing them. Find ways to celebrate the moments of struggle in your sons life. Help him understand that these moments of intense conflict are really the moments when he will be learning important life skills quickly. When children understand the benefits that come after challenges, they are more apt to accept them, and perhaps even to look forward to them. Children can enjoy and embrace the challenge of hard things when they know how to face them. Through experience and with support they will learn that when they accept challenging situations, they also will grow better and stronger and will appreciate the opportunity to test themselves. Shelley Greggs is adjunct faculty at Florida SouthWestern State College, where she teaches psychology and education courses. She is also a nationally certified school psychologist and consultant for School Consultation Services, a private educational consulting company.

Insurance Tip Are You Due A Refund For Your Flood Insurance?by Angela Larson RoehlIf you have a home here on Sanibel that was built before 1979 or a home on Captiva that was built before 1984, and purchased a flood policy after October 1, 2013 that required your flood policy be rated using a Flood Elevation Certificate, then you may be entitled to a refund. Policies for pre-FIRM homes purchased after July 6, 2012 that needed a Flood Elevation certificate for their policys renewal may also be affected. The refund is due to the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act being enacted on March 31, 2014 that removed the requirement set by the Biggert-Waters Act that required PreFIRM homes be rated using a Flood Elevation Certificate. Refunds will begin to be processed and mailed automatically to policyholders affected by this change, starting October 1, 2014. Angela Larson Roehl is a local Sanibel-Captiva insurance agent with over 20 years of insurance experience. She can be reached at To advertise in the Island Sun Call 395-1213


20B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 17, 2014 Hendrick Named National Flood Insurance ChairChris Heidrick, CPCU, CFP, ANFI, the principal of Heidrick & Co. Insurance on Sanibel, has been appointed as chairman of the National Flood Insurance Task Force for the Independent Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA). The IIABA is the premier association for independent agents representing more than a quarter million agents and their employees in more than 28,000 agency locations throughout the United States. In this new position, Heidrick will also serve on the Flood Insurance Producers National Committee (FIPNC). FIPNC is comprised of representatives from various insurance organizations and is dedicated to improving the National Flood Insurance Program through consultation, cooperation and regular communication with the Federal Insurance Administration/FEMA. The group provides expertise to federal policymakers in the areas of flood insurance product design and development, producer education and marketing. During the past two years, Heidrick has educated local residents and officials on the topic of flood insurance, having presented to local governments, homeowner associations, professional associations and civic groups. In February, Heidrick joined County Commissioner Larry Kiker, Sanibel Mayor Kevin Ruane and several other Lee County mayors in Washington, DC to present suggestions for reasonable flood insurance reform. Most of the ideas presented by the Lee County contingent were included in The Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act, signed by the President in late March. The Act successfully removed the most harmful provisions of BiggertWaters, which threatened the local economy. In the coming year, Heidricks primary focus will be on a smooth re-authorization of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) in 2017. Over the past two years, the NFIP has been thoroughly studied and significantly reformed. Congress needs to allow time for those reforms to work by re-authorizing the NFIP without major changes in 2017, said Heidrick. While 2017 may seem far away, we must remember it took Congress four years to finally agree on the last five-year reauthorization in 2012. A repeat of that debacle would be unacceptable. Heidrick, a former insurance company executive, established Heidrick & Co. Insurance in 2010 to focus on the unique insurance needs of residents and businesses on Sanibel and Captiva.

21B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 17, 2014 Community Foundation Announces Impact Grants The Southwest Florida Community Foundation announced that 12 nonprofit agencies in the region have been awarded $350,000 in funding. These grant awards are the first of the foundations newly-enhanced grants process designed to simplify the granting process for the nonprofits, and to include more potential collaborations and additional funders for projects. The foundation currently administers more than 350 endowed funds that were created through the generosity of local donors who planned for the future through establishing an endowed fund at the SWFLCF. Through the power of endowment, the funds are invested and a portion is granted annually by the foundation honoring the donors guidelines. With a focus on creating meaningful change and affecting issues in Southwest Florida, the SWFLCF works closely with nonprofit organizations and other stakeholders such as business, education, government, and end-users of services to efficiently and effectively fund nonprofit partners. A few of the ways the recipient nonprofits are using the grants to strengthen our region include helping abused women with immigration services, providing assistance for unemployed women, providing therapeutic programs for special needs students and adults living with Alzheimers, facilitating music appreciation to underserved students, opening economic develop opportunities to adults with special needs, offering vision services for small children and enhancing services for animal treatment. The agencies receiving funds include Amigos en Cristo, Inc., Hendry County Library System, Redlands Christian Migrant Association, Naples Botanical Garden, Grace Community Center, Childrens Home Society of Florida, Lighthouse of SWFL, Gulf Coast Humane Society, Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW), Charlotte County Homeless Coalition, Gulf Coast Symphony and the Quality of Life Center. The newly-revised grants process invites nonprofits in the region to submit a preview of their big idea. The foundation received 85 submissions, and 24 were invited to pitch their idea at the first compassionate shark tank, attended by donors and funders in addition to the grants-review committee. The nonprofits selected were then required to provide a more detailed letter of idea and budget. This is the first time we have had funders who either have a donor advised fund with the Community Foundation, or their own private foundation, sitting with us to actively fund projects, said Chief Strategic Officer Dave Fleming. Because a few of these funders have joined us, we can more fully fund the nonprofits requests of us and thus be more effective by working together. Another important part of the funding includes the foundations endeavor aimed at strengthening nonprofits across the region by providing ongoing collaboration and group meetings of the grantees, coined as tribes based their common mission to bring regional change for common good. We want to walk alongside the organizations, be a resource and connect them with other opportunities, said Sarah Owen, president and CEO of the Southwest Florida Community Foundation.

Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAML (03-12)How often does a child to whom you are close either fall, bump their head, complain of stomachaches or other pains in their body? Siphoning the pain, by placing your left hand over the area of pain (which pulls the energy toward the electromagnetic polarity in your hand), while holding your right hand down and away from the body, will begin to pull the congested energy to the surface of the body to release. With the right hand, squeeze it open and closed with the intention of siphoning the energy from the painful area, and out through that right hand. Since children dont have all the filters we have accumulated, they will experience the sensations of the moving energy more profoundly. Continue siphoning until the pain has released. Explain to the child you are sucking the pain and moving it right out of them. Children love this idea. Who knows? The next time you have an ache or pain, you may just get a volunteer to help release it. I have found this technique very helpful. I cant tell you how often I bump my head on the towel rack or the equipment at the gym or the kayak rack on my car. Each time, I stop and do this technique until the pain has quieted. Each time, I have no black-andblue marks, no hickie and completely forget about the incident. Except last week, when I was too busy and I have complained to my husband every day that the lump and black-and-blue mark is on my forehead because I just didnt take the time. Although unlikely, if you do feel as if the energy may have gotten stuck in you, place your hands under cold running continued on page 22B


22B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 17, 2014 Doctor and DietitianThe PainCortisol-Insomnia Connectionby Ross Hauser, MD and Marion Hauser, MS, RDMost of us have suffered from a bad nights sleep because of pain. Pain alerts the body that something is wrong. This causes cortisol, a stress hormone, to be released which causes you to be awake. In order to restore your health in this scenario, the pain needs to be cured, allowing the body to stop producing cortisol so that you can sleep. The body senses pain via the nervous system. Nervous system activation occurs when the body is injured. Initially, the body tries to heal the injury by sending immune cells to the injured area to repair it, much like workers show up a job site. Taking anti-inflammatory medications after an injury will actually inhibit this repair that they body is trying to accomplish naturally. A better approach is to use supplements and nutrients which speed up healing such as proteolytic enzymes, curcumin, fish oils, fo-ti root, schizandra berry and rhodiola extract. Movement, not rest, is what heals injured soft tissues. Think an animal that falls from a tree. It does not take anti-inflammatories or corticosteroid shots (Obviously!). They limp along (move) and eat nutritious foods and in a few days are back running around. Movement heals. Resting halts healing. If pain persists after three months, it is considered chronic and the likelihood it will resolve on its own without intervention is doubtful. Degeneration in the tissue and joint itself is the inevitable consequence if tissue health is not restored. We will address how to stimulate the body to repair itself in our next column.

Dear Mom & Me, It is genetic. My grandmother was fat, my mother and daughter are fat, and now my new doctor says I have to lose 75 pounds. My old doctor never said that I was fat, but this new young doctor says I may be a diabetic or have a thyroid problem. My husband and I love our eats and we dont want to be on some stupid diet. We love the all-you-can-eat restaurants and dont want to give up anything. Do you know of a pill I could take so I wont have to change my life? Effie Dear Effie, Genetics can sometimes be involved, but more frequently weight gain is because we eat too much for the energy we need and the extra is stored as fat. Your family may need some food counseling in food choices. Maybe you all eat the same kind of food that increases your caloric intake too much so you all gain weight. It has been documented that families can do this. The threat of diabetes and the possible medical problems that may develop would make me think twice about continuing your lifestyle. But that is between you and your doctor. Lizzie Dear Effie, The choice is yours: introduce healthy habits into your routine and stay as healthy as you can or dont, very simple. If you do not, you can most likely look forward to increased doctor appointments, increased restrictions of your diet and activity, increased dependence on adult children, increased financial expense, paying for the additional doctors, medicines and supplies.

It helps at this time of year for depression and immune function. When physicians talk about vitamin D deficiency, they are invariably talking about low levels of an inactive compound called hydroxyvitamin D 25 or (OH) Vitamin D3 as doctors write it. But theres another 1,25 form which is biologically active. Our kidney has the lovely task of converting D from inactive 25 form, to the active 1,25 form, and magnesium is necessary for that conversion. Kidney compromise means suppressed D activity and reduced 1,25 levels. As much as I love vitamin D, toxicity can occur if you take too much D which triggers low magnesium and high calcium. The picture of this includes heart palpitations, nausea, constipation, kidney stones, memory loss, softening of bones, hyperparathyroidism and body aches. Today, Ill teach you about vitamin D testing. Most physicians measure your blood levels of vitamin D 25 (the inactive form). This type of D grabs hold of your vitamin D receptor (VDR) and renders it inactive. Darn! Now the cell cant grab on to the 1,25 form of D which is what you want! I dont advise you supplement based upon low 25 D levels (seen on lab tests) because that is only half the picture. Take one blood test but ask your doctor to evaluate two biomarkers: 1,25 (OH) Vitamin D3: Active 25 (OH) Vitamin D3: Inactive This ratio should be less than 2 to 1. Ratios above 2 to 1 may be associated with infectious pathogens and high proinflammatory cytokines. You would think a high amount of the 1,25 form is desirable but its not. It could spell parathyroid disease, sarcoidosis, rheumatoid, fibromyalgia, Lyme and many other infections. On the other hand, low levels of 1,25 (active) D can occur with kidney disease since the kidneys are unable to activate the 25 form to 1,25. Hitting the nail on the head is important to your health. Example: Your lab reveals a level of ,25 D of 60, and a D level of 20. Hopefully, the units are the same. The ratio of 60 to 20 equals 3. Since the ratio of 3 to 1 is greater than 2 to 1, you dont need to supplement. If your ratio was 2 to 1 (or less) thats great. It might be OK to supplement but only to a point, because you dont want the total 1,25 D to get above 75 (considered the upper range by many health experts). Personally, I wouldnt supplement based solely upon low levels of the 25 D. Its inactive. Its what you see on your labs. The reason is because your active 1,25 levels might be fine, or even high. And just because you supplement doesnt necessarily mean you activate that D either. I think you should get the full picture and evaluate both forms of D. Its scary that over 100 drugs impact your D and calcium levels. All that information is in my Drug Muggers book. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

Beauty Inside OutBalancing Act by Kay CaspersonNow that fall has officially arrived in Southwest Florida, calendars are filling up and schedules are getting busier day by day, especially for me and my family. Some days feel like a juggling act, and lately Ive been constantly reminded how critical it is to have balance in every aspect of our lives -emotionally, spiritually, physically, environmentally and socially. Balance is essential in every stage of life, no matter your age, family situation or profession. Whether youre still in school and trying to balance homework, exams, extracurriculars, friends and maybe a part-time job, or if youre a working spouse and parent trying to balance work, home, kids, animals, activities, social lives and so much more finding that perfect balance makes all the difference. It can be a challenge just to ensure youre hitting your daily requirements of sleep, exercise and proper nutrition, especially when its your responsibility to care for others in your life. Im a wife, the mother of two young girls, a pet parent of two dogs, the daughter of aging parents, a sister, an aunt, a friend, a business owner and an active member of many communities. Sometimes its difficult to devote the attention and care that I feel each and every one of the people in my life deserves, and when my life is out of balance, I can see how it ripples through and affects all of my important responsibilities and relationships. But I believe that youre never given more than you can handle its how you handle it that makes all the difference. I often say that if I can do it, anyone can! The key is balance. One of my favorite affirmations is I will take time to care for myself. My top priorities are always the other people in my life my husband and daughters, our animals, my extended family, my friends, my staff, my community because thats what brings me joy and I feel blessed to have them in my life. But if we dont take proper care of ourselves, we cant properly care for others. Maybe its a weekly visit to the spa for a relaxing massage, or maybe its simply taking 15 minutes out of your day to be alone and meditate or pray in peace whatever it is that helps you find your center, dont forget how important it is to take the time to replenish your mind, body and soul. In addition to taking care of yourself, here are three more of my favorite tips for bringing your life into balance and keeping it that way: 1. Surround yourself with support and inspiration. Stay inspired and give yourself every opportunity to succeed by always surrounding yourself with positive encouragement and positive people. Avoid negativity (like bad situations, bad choices and bad attitudes) and focus all of your energy on making good decisions. 2. Write it all down. When theres a lot going on, its so easy to forget an appointment or let a task slip through the cracks. Writing down all of your responsibilities, your essential to-do items, your personal goals and any other important reminders will help you stay organized and on track. You can do it the old fashioned way pen and paper or make use of smart phone apps (like calendars and digital to-do lists). 3. Never be afraid to ask for help. Learning how to prioritize and delegate responsibilities is a crucial part of lifes balancing act. Even if youre taking time to stay balanced and care for yourself, youre still only one person and you can only do so much and its OK to ask for help when you need it! Kay Casperson lives on Sanibel.

But remember, Lamb, you are at your best when you are your own inimitable self. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Expect strong efforts to get you to accept things as they are and not question them. But ignore all that and continue your inquiries until youre sure you have all the answers you need. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Heavier than usual family and workplace duties compete for your time this week. Try to strike a balance so that youre not overwhelmed by either. Pressures ease by weeks end. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Its a good time for the Moon Child to show off your uniquely inspired approach to the culinary skills -especially if theyre directed toward impressing someone special. LEO (July 23 to August 22) You might be happy about the re-emergence of a longdeferred deal. But dont pounce on it quite yet. Time can change things. Be sure the values you looked for before are still there. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Try to rein in your super-critical attitude, even if things arent being done quite as you would prefer. Remember: What you say now could create an awkward situation later on. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Although you can expect on-the-job cooperation from most of your colleagues this week, some people might insist on knowing more about your plans before they can accept them. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Creating another way to do things is commendable. But you could find some resistance this week from folks who would rather stick with the tried-and-true than try something new. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) You usually can keep your aim focused on your goal. But you might need to make adjustments to cope with unsteadiness factors that could arise over the course of the week. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) News arrives about a projected move. Be prepared to deal with a series of possible shifts, including starting and finishing times, and how much the budget will actually cover. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A new relationship needs time to develop. Let things flow naturally. It could be a different story with a workplace situation, which might require faster and more focused attention. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Accept a compliment without trying to troll for any hidden reason beyond what was said. After all, dont you deserve to be praised every now and then? Of course you do. BORN THIS WEEK: You like to weigh all possibilities before making a decision. You would be a fine judge, or even be a star in a jury room. On Oct. 26, 1776, a month after being named a diplomatic agent, Benjamin Franklin sets sail from Philadelphia for France, where he was to negotiate and secure a formal alliance and treaty. While Franklins personal achievements were celebrated and feted in Paris, his treaty success was slow. The treaty wasnt signed until 1778. On Oct. 25, 1881, Pablo Picasso, one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, is born in Spain. Picassos body of work comprises more than 50,000 paintings, drawings, engravings, sculptures and ceramics produced over 80 years until his death in 1973 at age 91. On Oct. 22, 1934, Charles Pretty Boy Floyd is shot and killed by FBI agents in a cornfield in East Liverpool, Ohio. Floyd, who had been a hotly pursued fugitive for four years, used his last breath to proclaim his innocence. On Oct. 20, 1947, the House Un-American Activities Committee of the U.S. Congress opens its investigation into communist infiltration of the American movie industry. Many Hollywood actors saw their careers destroyed over false allegations or when they protested having their political loyalties questioned. On Oct. 24, 1958, mystery writer Raymond Chandler starts working on his last novel, The Poodle Springs Story, but he would die before completing it. Chandler published only seven novels, among them his first novel, The Big Sleep, in 1939 and The Long Goodbye in 1953. On Oct. 21, 1967, some 100,000 antiwar demonstrators march on the Pentagon, headquarters of the U.S. military. Violence erupted when the protesters clashed with soldiers and U.S. marshals protecting the building. By the time order was restored, 683 people had been arrested. On Oct. 23, 1983, a suicide bomber drives a truck filled with 2,000 pounds of explosives into a U.S. Marine Corps barracks at the Beirut International Airport. The explosion killed 220 Marines, 18 sailors and three soldiers. Four months after the bombing, American forces left Lebanon without retaliating. It was President John F. Kennedy who defined happiness as the full use of your powers along lines of excellence. Any novelty seeker planning a trip to Japan ought to include a trip to the town of Susami, home to the worlds deepest underwater postbox. A scuba diver who would like to send a unique message should head to the local dive shop and buy a special water-resistant postcard, then use an oilbased marker to write the message. On a dive off the towns coast, the diver can head down 30 feet to deposit the mail in a red postbox, which is checked every few days by a dive-shop employee. All the postcards are then taken to the local post office and sent on to the recipients. Considering the ever-increasing cost of postage, you might be surprised to learn that the U.S. Postal Service was free until 1863. Milton Hershey, creator of the iconic Hershey Bar and founder of the Pennsylvania company town that bears his name, grew up in a Mennonite family, working on the family farm. He had no formal schooling past the fourth grade. He served as an apprentice to a candy maker, then started his own confectionery. It failed. His second attempt also was a failure. His third attempt in the candy business was such a success that he sold the company for a large profit in 1900. He immediately used the proceeds from that sale to come up with his own formula for milk chocolate and create the Hershey Company. Those who study such things say that 20 percent of American men have spent at least one night in jail. The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without work. -Pablo Picasso THIS WEEK IN HISTORY THOUGHT FOR THE DAY STRANGE BUT TRUE

Shore Fishing:Don't Harm The Fishby Capt. Matt Mitchell 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. 29B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 17, 2014 CLASSIFIED DEADLINE FRIDAY AT NOON CLASSIFIED DEADLINE FRIDAY AT NOON CLASSIFIEDS CLASSIFIEDS CLASSIFIEDS CLASSIFIEDS HELP WANTEDHELP WANTEDMake a difference!
