So Conservation Art Day is now the time to get your duck stamps signed, said Supervisory Refuge Ranger Toni Westland.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 24, 20146 Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellIn the latter part of the Vietnam war and for a long time after, our American troops were often treated with disdain for serving in Vietnam. Last weeks guest speaker, John Giddy Up Bunch, knows this all too well. He spoke of his own experience. The year was 1971, wearing his 1st Lt. marine uniform, he was walking through the Washington, DC airport, where he was called names and spit on by Vietnam War protesters. He didnt just let that go. There was an altercation, but it left an indelible impression that made him promise to himself that one-day he would figure out a way to treat American men and women who served our country, better than he had been treated that day. After serving in the marines, Bunchs career path took multiple directions, first working for IBM and, when that ended, touring with the PGA and currently as one of the most successful and well-known fishing guides in Southwest Florida. He is called Giddy Up for a reason but he never explained that, he just kept mentioning that he was living the life over on Fort Myers Beach, a bachelor with only himself to care about, and when he said that, there was a smile on his face. A selfish life, as he said. Well, that selfish life was about to change in 2005. A chance encounter at a Fort Myers Beach bar would see to that. SPC Travis Downes approached Bunch with a simple question; he wanted to know where he could do some fishing from the beach or pier before he had to go back to Iraq. Bunch thought for a while and then came his Aha! moment. If Downes and his father could meet him in Pine Island, he would take them out on his boat to fish. Travis told him he couldnt afford to rent a fishing charter. Bunch told him the trip was on him. He knew that this was the way he could keep that promise he made to himself a long time ago, to give back, if only in a small way, to the troops that serve our country. The year 2005 was the beginning of Operation Open Arms. Bunch called on many of his fishing guide friends, those he knew at hotels, restaurants and wedding venues in the area for help with his promise to one day figure out a way to treat American men and women who serve our country with dignity and respect for the sacrifices they have made to protect us. Operation Open Arms (OOA) offers local businesses, associations and individuals an opportunity to support our active duty troops. They are an all-volunteer 501(c)3 charity in Southwest Florida. Since its founding in 2005, OOA has provided nearly 3,000 troops and their families one-week paid vacations valued at $3,500. It also has arranged over 100 weddings, each with a value of $18,000. A more recent service extended to vets by Operation Open Arms is their dedication to the care and treatment of PTSD. With the help of mental health professionals in the area, OOA is providing some services to those returning vets with PTSD. With many local and national accolades for OOA, its sponsors, and Bunch, Operation Open Arms has been noted to be an amazingly successful non-profit. Still it needs your help to lighten the hearts and minds of our brave troops. Most all of the services are donated but there are always incidental expenses and boat captains are sometimes given gas money for charters. Donations are accepted on the website. Bunch did mention that he understands the Rotary Motto Service Above Self and that is exactly what Operation Open Arms is about. This is a real service that makes a difference in the lives of our troops. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets at 7 a.m. every Friday at The Dunes Golf and Tennis Club, 949 Sand Castle Road.

7 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 24, 2014 Talks By Noted Scholars To Begin On CaptivaUnderwater archaeologist Steve Koski kicks off a free lecture series this Saturday, October 25 at 3 p.m. with a hands-on presentation entitled, When Mammoths Roamed at the Captiva Community Center, 11550 Chapin Lane as part of the ArtCalusa exhibition. The lecture series is made possible by the Captiva Civic Association, Lee Trust for Historic Preservation, Captiva Memorial Library Advisory Board, and the Captiva Island Historic Society. Koski will discuss Floridas first inhabitants who arrived when this land was a broad open grassland where mammoths, saber-toothed cats and giant ground sloth roamed. An underwater archaeologist specializing in Floridas earliest history, Koski explores how and what we know about Floridas first peoples. This handson presentation includes a background of two famous Florida sites, the sinkholes of Warm Mineral Springs and Little Salt Spring in Sarasota County. Koski received his bachelors degree in anthropology from the University of Massachusetts in Boston before moving on to graduate studies at Arizona State University. His research interests include the early prehistory of Florida, coastal adaptations, and Paleo-Indian and Archaic period settlement and subsistence systems. He has extensive experience conducting underwater archaeological excavations at Little Salt Spring. On November 11 at 5 p.m., archaeologist Theresa Schober will present The Archaeological Heritage of Sanibel and Captiva. Schober will turn attention to the remnants of elevated mounds and ridges, and how sculpted canals and watercourts remain a visible yet subtle reminder of the once thriving Calusa society that controlled the southern third of the Florida peninsula at the time of Spanish contact. Schober has studied numerous Calusa sites in Southwest Florida, including continued on page 20 Steve Koski Community Invited To 40th Anniversary Of Incorporation Community Invited to Historical Preservation Committee Reception in Recognition of the 40th Anniversary Celebration of Incorporation Tuesday, November 4th, 2014 Sanibel residents are welcomed to attend a reception celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the City of Sanibels incorporation to be held at 8:00 a.m., Tuesday, November 4th, 2014, at City Hall, 800 Dunlop Road.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 24, 2014 10 Mayor To Serve On Task ForceSanibel Mayor Kevin Ruane has been appointed by Florida Governor Rick Scott to serve on the South Florida Ecosystem Restoration Task Force. The task force is comprised of 14 members including federal, tribal, state and local representatives, developing policies, strategies, plans, programs, projects and activities that address the restoration, preservation and protection of the South Florida ecosystem. The success of the Everglades restoration will have a tremendous economic impact on the coastal communities of South Florida, including Sanibel. Ruane has worked closely with federal and state delegations to advance the Everglades and northern estuaries restoration, specifically the passage of the 2014 Water Resources reform and Development Act (WRRDA), and to promote projects like the C-43 West Basin Reservoir, Kissimmee Restoration, and the Central Everglades Planning Project, that will prove a tremendous asset to the task force. Ruane was appointed to the Sanibel City Council to serve an interim position for a vacant seat in February 2007. In May 2007, he successfully ran for a permanent position on Sanibel City Council. He was re-elected in March 2009 and appointed by his peers as vice mayor for 2009-2010, and mayor since 2010. He is councils liaison to the Contractors Review Board, Municipal Police Officers Retirement Trust Fund Board of Trustees, General Employees Pension Board of Trustees, and the Employee Dependent Scholarship Committee.

He serves as the treasurer for the Lee County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) and as councils liaison on the Lee County Tourism Development Council (TDC). He is a member of the Florida Municipal Insurance Trust (FMIT) Pension committee and was appointed as a board member to the FMIT in January 2010, serving as chairman since 2011.

For further information, contact Robin Krivanek at 395-0927. Time For Florida Voters To ActOn August 26, Florida had its worst voter turnout in 16 years. Only 17.5 percent of the states 11.8 million voters actually voted on or before election day. The previous dubious record was set in 1998, when only 16.6 percent of voters cast ballots in the primary election. Florida voters have no excuses for not casting their ballots, said League of Women Voters president Deirdre Macnab. The key to our states future is in every voters hands. Critical issues are at stake from the governors race, to our next legislature. From clean water, to quality public schools, to jobs, and affordable healthcare, candidates have very different visions and ideas. Its exciting, its our future. Every registered voter needs to ask themselves: Am I a player, or am I dead wood? Across the state, League volunteers are working hard, handing out voter guides and explaining that Floridians have three ways to vote: EARLY: The Sunshine States early voting window opened on Monday, October 20. BY MAIL: Voters can simply call their Supervisor of Elections and ask to receive a mail-in ballot. ELECTION DAY: To check your correct polling location, visit www. and make sure you that you know where to go to cast your ballot. The League, which has never endorsed a candidate or party in its 90-plus years of service, recently published a statewide voter guide as well as many local editions. In addition, the League has published its annual nonpartisan Voting Tips For Florida Voters as a FAQ refresher for both experienced voters as well as novices. The Leagues award-winning desktop and mobile websites (www. and www. provide concise voting information via your desktop PC or smartphone: early voting location hours, contact information for all 67 Supervisors of Elections, return-postage rates for absentee ballots (Note: each county is different), precinct information and links to the Leagues 2014 Nonpartisan Voter Guide. Things to note: If you choose to vote early, you have the flexibility to vote anywhere in the county in which you live. However, if you wait to vote until election day, you must go to your assigned precinct. Voters still have time to request a mail ballot (absentee). This can be done with a call to your local Supervisor of Elections. Any Floridian can request a no-excuse vote by mail ballot. Absentee ballots have already been mailed to most voters who requested them. Its an exciting year for Florida. We urge everyone to make their voice heard, said Charley Williams, the Leagues Voter Service Chair. Vote on your schedule. Just remember, with three ways to cast your ballot, election day November 4 is the last day to vote.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 24, 2014 14 Community Helpers WeekIt has been a very busy week at the Childrens Education Center of the Islands during Community Helpers Week. Dr. Heather Barron, hospital director of CROW, visited and explained how she became a wildlife veterinarian. She discussed, with the help of many stuffed animals, the different types of wildlife that call Sanibel home. She also taught the children that they should never feed wildlife, they shouldnt touch wildlife unless an animals is in trouble and that we should call CROW if we have any questions. Officer Jakubowski, school resource officer at The Sanibel School, visited us and discussed how police officers are our friends. He also explained to the children that all policemen are here to keep us safe and to help us. He explained all of the different parts of his uniform and what they are used for. The children had a strange curiosity about his boots and all the places that they would allow him to safely go. Deputy Ashley also visited the school. She is a corrections officer at the Lee County Sheriffs Office. She shared with us that her job is the keep safe the people who have made mistakes, such as hurting another person or not following the rules and are in an adult time out. She told us what is was like to work at a jail, explained her uniform parts, and demonstrated handcuffs on her fellow deputy. She also shared, much to the horror of many students, that there is no candy in jail. Whether or not that part is true, the jury is still out, but it made a point! Her son, Nathan, is in the VPK class and enjoyed sharing his moms job with us. Dr. Heather Barron of CROW shared a video some of the cutest baby animals that CROW helps. The children were fascinated by the video and loved guessing the animal in each video clip. Dr. Heather Barron gets an extra snuggle after her presentation with her kids Dillon and Addie, both preschoolers at CECI Deputy Ashley and Deputy Bores of the Lee County Sheriffs Office demonstrate the use of handcuffs which are used to keep people safe Officer Jakubowski is surrounded by his new friends at the Childrens Education Center of the Islands Lazy Flamingo, Inc.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 24, 2014 18 The Fast Paced Fall Bite Continuesby Capt. Matt MitchellWith another cold front passing through this week, conditions finally became just about perfect for being out on the water at any time of the day. Fall days are now noticeably cooler and getting shorter as we get closer and closer to daylight savings time coming to a end. Late October is that time that the fish are on the move to the back country and packing on the pounds as they make their way toward their winter haunts. With such an abundance of bait fish throughout the area, fish are simply taking advantage of this easy forage while its still available. Snook and redfish are the main targets for most anglers this time of year, although lots of unexpected opportunities can present themselves while our water temperature remains around the mid 70s to 80-degree mark. Snook fishing has been some of the most predictable action, with lots of fish located anywhere from the passes to back country creeks. Live shiners have been the bait of choice, with hungry snook exploding these baits on the surface as they grab an easy meal. Mangrove creek fishing on either tide was a sure thing as long as the water was moving. Most of the snook in these creeks are on the small side of the slot, although catching 10 or more snook off one little point or in a little mangrove cove with fast moving tide was very common. Bigger snook were in better numbers on mangrove islands in the middle sound but were much tougher to get to eat a hooked bait. We are currently seeing some of the best numbers of snook we have experienced in years. Big schools of roaming redfish are still a common sight in the sound. This is some of the most awesome sight fishing action of the year and will continue all month long. These herds of hungry redfish can basically pop up on just about any flat or channel edge. Flats and bars within close proximity to the passes are a good place to spend your time looking, with the lower stages of the tide being the best. Be rigged and ready when these fish rise up and the chance presents itself. This is often the difference between success and failure. Long casting artificials will reach out and get to these fish when nothing else will. Calm conditions make finding these fish a whole lot easier, although some days they just dont show up and you have to move on to target another species. Fishing one morning this week with Allison Jaques and her boyfriend Jake Mayenschein from Wisconsin. This was Jakes first Florida fishing trip. The last time I had fished with Allison was with her family in the winter and she had a banner day, catching a quality Pine Island slam while hiding from the wind back in the Ding Darling creek systems. At our first stop, we were off to a quick start with a few snook feeding well on the mangrove point. The first few casts got bit and we got the skunk out of the boat before moving on. At the second stop, Jake caught the big fish of the day, a 29-inch snook that made it to a mangrove overhang and hung up before coming loose, luckily without breaking the line. Just about every place we stopped, the snook would respond aggressively and loudly on the surface to the chummed live shiners. Just watching these fish eat is half the fun. If you like to fish, you just have to love this visual and explosive surface fall snook action.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. Send us details including tackle, bait and weather conditions, date of catch, species and weight, and include photographs with identification.

19 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 24, 2014 Plant SmartTiger Clawby Gerri ReavesTiger claw (Erythrina variegata) is a deciduous tree native to tropical Asia. This fast-grower can reach up to 80 feet tall, so its best suited to large landscapes. The orientalis variety pictured here has attractive large green leaves with creamy or pale green veins. The compound leaves are comprised of three deltashaped leaflets, each about six inches long. Branches and longer leaf stalks have curved spines. It is related to the coral, or Cherokee, bean tree ( Erythrina herbacea), a Florida native, and is also called coral bean because of its dense clusters of deep red showy flowers. One much larger flower petal that arches out of the split calyx (collective sepals) resembles a sharp feline claw in shape, thus the common name tiger claw. This ornamental works well as a shade or specimen tree and develops a wide canopy and symmetrical crown. It is very drought tolerant and salt tolerant as well, so it can be used in coastal landscapes. Give it full sun. Propagate with the seeds in the cylindrical pods or with woody cuttings. The seeds and bark are said to be poisonous if ingested, but the flowers are used as seasoning in some parts of Central America. Sources: Flowering Trees of Florida by Mark K. Stebbins, Tropical Blossoms of the Caribbean by Dorothy and Bob Hargreaves,, and Plant Smart explores the plant life of South Florida and sustainable landscape practices. The orientalis variety is liked for its large ornamental leaves photos by Gerri Reaves Tiger claw, a relative of the native coral bean tree, is also known as Indian coral tree

Theresa Schober photo by Laura Gates John Worth An Inside Look At Wildlife Recovery The CROW Picture Show presents informative anecdotes about the native and migratory wildlife species brought to the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW), along with photos of patients admitted to the facility. In 2013, CROWs wildlife hospital cared for 3,391 sick, injured and orphaned animals. Of the 200 different species, 60 percent were birds, with 33 percent mammals and seven percent reptiles. CROW is not permitted to display its patients publically, so this hour-long presentation offers the next best thing: numerous candid snapshots of current and past patients, with commentary by Claudia Burns, a veteran clinic volunteer. The next CROW Picture Show is on Friday, October 24 at 11 a.m. in CROWs Visitor Education Center at 3883 Sanibel-Captiva Road, across from The Sanibel School. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for teens, free for members and children 12 or under.

21 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 24, 2014 CROW Case Of The Week: Babies And More Babiesby Patricia MolloyStudents and volunteers work around the clock to feed orphaned youngsters like raccoons, baby birds and dozens of little squirrels. The raccoon ( Procyon lotor) room contains a number of little bandits that chatter day and night. They are generally orphaned; incidents of rabies and distemper are low in baby raccoons (i.e., muzzles not required). They are also tube fed and/or bottle fed a milk supplement until they transition to solid meals similar to those fed to the opossums. The baby squirrel room is full of incubators to keep the youngsters warm and comfortable. They are tube fed three to four times per day Fox Valley formula, a milk replacer specifically designed for baby squirrels, Eastern cottontails and opossums. Once the healthy squirrels are weened and can eat soaked monkey biscuits, vegetables and fruit, they will be transferred outside. CROW hopes to release them within three months. It takes weeks or months for babies to mature enough to survive in the wild. Most of the babies raised at the clinic from babyhood do not need to be returned to the exact location in which they were found, since they were too young to have established a territory. If you are interested in having wild mammals, birds or reptiles released on your property, contact the clinic for the set of guidelines to determine if your land is suitable. The clinic will review the set of guidelines with property owners to determine if their place is suitable. Some of the questions include: Is the property wooded? Is there a pond? Is it safe from free-roaming dogs? CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Inc.) is a non-profit wildlife hospital providing veterinary care for native and migratory wildlife from our local area. The hospital accepts patients seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mail donations to P.O. Box 150, Sanibel, FL 33957.

25 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 24, 2014 From page 1Community Invited To 29th Baileyfest This Sundaypretty exciting. I like the robe, added Willis.

Kirill Bykov was surprised by Principal Barbara Von Harten in being crowned King of Baileyfest The Country Rhythm Cloggers in action My Favorite Things (To Do On Sanibel)by Anna WillisSanibel, a lush green island packed with pine trees and wildlife, is worldrenowned for what activities it is dotted with. From one side of Sanibel to the other, the island is speckled with enjoyable activities, fun restaurants, and warm, bright; radiant beaches. One of the things I like to do on Sanibel is to go to the beach. I like to seep into the white sand and watch all day the beautiful colors of the white-flecked sky up above. At the beach, the water glimmers in a delicate shade of aqua, with the waves sporting shining gold tips from the blazing sunlight. On the beach, many people rest in the shade created by brilliantly-colored umbrellas. Beach balls give the sky some color blue, red, yellow, green, and orange as they float in the air, alighted by the rays of sunlight forever descending down from the heavens. Another thing I like to do is to bike along the bike trails on Sanibel. I like when it entangles me in an adventure with wildlife Id never seen before, beautiful vegetation, and that rustling in the bushes. Seeing the blue sky and white clouds as the morning sun rises as the wind lashes against my face makes me nevertheless content. On a bike ride on Sanibel, you can also see many animals. You can hear the chattering of raccoons, the chirps of birds, and the howling of the wind. I like to take boat rides with my family, too. Seeing the navy-blue ocean pass behind our boat creates a soaring feeling, as if the boat were on air, forever floating in the hemisphere. I like seeing the shiny silver dolphins leap past, hearing the distant cries of shorebirds, and feeling the salty air on my face. There is much to look for on a satisfactory Sanibel boat-ride, and much to catch on a fishing-rod too. When the sky flashes blue, I like to ride on my familys golf cart in the mornings. I like to see the early morning sun as it ascends in the glowing sky. Its glimmer finally comes to rest on the grey pavement and shining green trees. Its radiance looks me in the eye, that beautiful thing that we have here that others dont. A Few Of My Favorite Thingsby Kirill BykovToday youre going to read about my favorite activities to do on Sanibel Island. So pull up a chair and start reading! I admire sprinting to the beach and staring at the sunrise to start my busy day. I also idolize gazing at the brown pelicans diving into the freezing water for just a little tiny trout. My activity in the ocean would be snorkeling and seeing lovely sea creatures swimming around me. Those sea creatures are: sting rays, sea stars, turtles, pinfish, otters, jellyfish, dolphins, snook, and even manatees! I also prefer gathering for shells. I find a lot of gorgeous shells by the beach and theyre pink, orange, red, white and even black! They look like a shelter for snails. They sound like a plate smashed by a tank. And one of my hobbies is also fishing on a boat out in the ocean. I hook up lots of beautiful fish like snook, trout, salmon, grouper, snapper, and pinfish. I also care for kayaking and being out in nature and looking out for tons of fish jumping around my kayak! These are my favorite activities to do on Sanibel Island. I love these activities, snorkeling, fishing, kayaking, watching the sunrise, watching the pelicans, collecting shells, and being out in nature.

27 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 24, 2014 Shell Of The WeekFlorida Caecumby Jos H. Leal, PhD, The BaileyMatthews National Shell Museum Science Director & CuratorThese two pictures show the same shell, the Florida caecum, Caecum floridanum Stimpson, 1851, a tiny gastropod not uncommon on the sandy beaches of Southwest Florida and that measures no more than 4 mm (a tad beyond 1/8 inch). The genus name Caecum means blind in Latin, and the word is also used for any structure that ends in a blind tube or pouch. The photo on top was taken under a standard microscope, and the one on the bottom with a scanning electron microscope (SEM), a sophisticated piece of equipment that allows for visualization of great detail at very large magnifications, but at the expense of color: SEMs use electron beams instead of light, and that procedure does not capture color, only surface features.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 24, 2014 30 Buddy: The Buddy Holly Storyby Di SaggauIm serious, you must see Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story, now showing at Broadway Palm. It is fabulous, absolutely fabulous. Most of us can remember the music of the 1950s, and who can forget Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper. They are played by Todd Meredith, Jayar Garcia and Mike Brennan. The show traces the career of Holly from his humble beginnings in 1956 in Lubbock, Texas. Buddy Holly and The Crickets are into rock n roll when everyone thinks country music is safer. But they persevere and soon make it to the big time. Along the way, we get to hear songs like Maybe Baby, Every Day, Peggy Sue, Thatll Be The Day, Oh Boy and others made famous by the group. The action moves from Texas to Tennesee, New Mexico and the Apollo Theater in New Yorks Harlem. The latter is one of the outstanding scenes that also features Rendell Debose, Sidney Davis and Susaye Lawson. The show is directed and choreographed by Amy Marie McCleary and Meredith is the assistant director in addition to playing the lead role. He played the same role for Broadway Palm in their 2007 production, and he tours the country as a Buddy Holly tribute artist. He plays the role to perfection. Garcia played Ritchie Valens in La Bamba several years ago at Broadway Palm, and he certainly has not lost his touch. Oh, to be able to move like he does. When he sings the signature song, he rocks the place and gets everyone to sing along. Brennan has great fun with Chantilly Lace and easily wins over the crowd. The music and choreography in this show will blow you away. The shows final scene is a concert in Clear Lake, Iowa on February 2, 1959, where Holly is joined by Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper. If you ever wondered what it would have been like to be in the audience and hear three of the greatest talents of their time in their final performance, you can experience it during this scene. It puts you there moving with the beat to nine classic tunes that have the audience on their feet and dancing in the aisles. February 3, 1959 will always be known as The day the music died, and it is portrayed beautifully in the show in a short scene. Then, the music comes alive again and the audience is left remembering the good times and how important their music was to several generations. My hat is off to the entire cast and crew for a production that rivals any I have seen anywhere including Broadway. Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story plays through November 15 at Broadway Palm, Southwest Floridas Premier Dinner Theatre. For tickets, call 2784422, visit or stop by the box office at 1380 Colonial Boulevard in Fort Myers. Scene from Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story at Broadway Palm Dinner Theater Library Book Discussion GroupElizabeth Strouts book The Burgess Boys will be the focus of the Wednesday, November 19 book discussion at the Sanibel Public Library. The meeting is free and open to the public. The discussion begins at 2 p.m. in the librarys Meeting Room 4, located on the ground floor. A reviewer for The Boston Globe wrote, Elizabeth Strouts first two books, Abide with Me and Amy and Isabelle, were highly thought of, and her third, Olive Kitteridge, won the Pulitzer Prize in fiction. But The Burgess Boys, her most recent novel, is her best yet. Strout was a speaker at the librarys 2010 Author Series. While it is preferable to come having previously read the book, all are welcome. The books featured for the Sanibel Public Library book group discussions are available in hardcopy as well as in downloadable format. Hardcopy books are located in the library near the Reference Desk. The discussion group will not meet in December. The book for Januarys meeting is Shanghai Girls by Lisa See. See will be on Sanibel on March 18 for the Library Foundations Lunch with the Author fundraising event. In February, the group will discuss Sue Monk Kidds The Invention of Wings. Monk Kidd will speak at the library on March 12 as part of the Author Series. For more information, call 472-2483.

31 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 24, 2014 Monday Night MovieHaute Cuisineby Di SaggauThe BIG ARTS movie for Monday, October 27 is Haute Cuisine, a French film based on the true story of the French presidents first female chef. It offers plenty of simple pleasures, including a passion for recipes and fresh produce. The movie is basically about what happens when a woman tries to navigate the politics of a palace kitchen. The film opens in 1993, as Hortense Laborie (based on real-life chef Daniel Mazet-Delpeuch and played by Catherine Frot) is wrapping up a year cooking at a research base in Antarctica. A journalist and her cameraman learn that Hortense once worked at the Elysee Palace for former French President Francois Mitterrand and want to hear more. The prickly chef has no interest in going down that path. We understand why as the movie jumps back four years to the day when Hortense lands the palace job. The thrills come in the form of glossy reductions, plump escargot, rich duck breasts layered with delicately cooked vegetables, and a cream cheese treat that requires straining through a mesh made of a particular grass. Its fascinating to watch her cook. The film gets a lot of gentle chuckles out of the way food is treated as deadly serious business in the French presidential palace. Its great fun to be along for Hortenses ride as Mitterandss chef. Haute Cuisine is a tasty treat. The film runs 95 minutes. Next up on November 3 is The Invisible Woman, a British biographical drama film about the secret love affair between Charles Dickens and Nelly Teman. Well have more on that in next weeks Island Sun. Admission to BIG ARTS Monday Night Film Series is $8 and all screenings begin at 7 p.m. in Schein Performance Hall. Each film is followed by a complimentary reception and discussion in Phillips Gallery. Sponsors are Bank of the Islands and Stan and Visnja Gembicki. Supporters are Sanibel Taxi, Jerrys Foods of Sanibel and John R. Wood Real Estate. BIG ARTS is located at 900 Dunlop Road. Tickets are available at the door or by calling 395-0900.

NEWSPAPERSanibel&CaptivaIslands VOL. 22, NO. 18 SANIBEL & CAPTIVA ISLANDS, FLORIDA OCTOBER 24, 2014 B BSECTION 10K Race 4 FISH Held On SanibelZach Smith of Fort Myers turned in a time of 37:32.05 to win the 6th annual 10K Race 4 FISH on Sanibel Island last Saturday morning. Smith, who trains on his own in Fort Myers, won for the third time in four years. Its one of the most fun races in Southwest Florida, said Smith, 37. Its flat, the temperature is good and the air on Sanibel is fresh. A 10K race separates the boys from the toddlers, added Smith, who said he distanced himself from his closest pursuers at about the 4.5-mile mark of the 6.4-mile race. Kathryn Repperger. 34, Cape Coral, was 15th overall and first in the female division in 41:19.63. It is tremendous weather for a race and we had almost 500 runners registered, so there is a lot to be happy about, said FISH President John Morse. FISH of Sanibel-Captiva provides social services to the needy who visit, live or work on the islands. We couldnt put on this race without the many volunteers, added Morse, who noted that a volunteer was posted at each driveway and intersection along the 10K route that started and finished at The Community House. Rounding out the top 10 were Dane Delozier of Costa Mesa, California, 37:51; Thomas Swiersz of Fort Myers, 38:05; Wisnick Beauplan of Fort Myers, 38:52; Torrincontinued on page 4B Zach Smith of Fort Myers won Saturdays 10K Race 4 FISH in 37:32 Runners take off down Periwinkle Way at the start of Saturdays race Kathrun Repperger of Cape Coral was the female winner in 41:19, placing 15th overall Highlights Of Lets Pink Out Sanibel & Captiva Participants of the 3rd annual Lets Pink Out Sanibel & Captiva Islands held on Sunday at Sanibel Fire Station #1.

2B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 24, 2014 Historic Downtown Fort Myers, Then And Now: Flower Industry Flourishedby Gerri Reaves, PhDEver wonder about the name origins of Gladiolus Drive and A&W Bulb Road? Those two names are linked to one of the most productive and profitable industries that Lee County ever had. Cut flowers were once big business, and colorful fields of glads seemed to stretch forever. In fact, in the 1930s, Lee County was known as the Gladiolus Capital of the nation, and in the 1940s, the flower became a big money maker. Gladioli were the biggest portion of the market, but other flowers, including chrysanthemums, were important too. Flowers brokers offices were plentiful in downtown Fort Myers, and countless shipments left there via rail. By 1960, local concerns such as A&W Bulb Company and Norman Cox and Company were air-freighting gladioli from Page Field. A couple of statistics hints at the industrys economic importance and rapid growth in the mid-20th century. In May 1950, the Lee County gladiolus industry reported its best season ever, $3 million income. By spring 1965, flower growers valued a record harvest at over $96 million. Craig Green remembers the heyday of the industry very well. In the 1960s and early 1970s, his father, Jerry Green, was the terminal manager for the Florida Flower Growers Association and later a packinghouse manager for Zipperer Farms. There were six major growers during those years, Green says, and much of the land south of Colonial Boulevard and much acreage in Iona, Lehigh Acres and Immokalee were swathes of gladioli. The 1960s airline photo is from his family collection. Green is not sure if the photo was taken at Page Field in Fort Myers or in Miami, but its typical of photos the association would take during the annual convention held in Miami. Eastern Airlines was the associations carrier for a long time, and his father brought him promotional items such as airlines bags and mini-airplanes from the event. During the 1960s, the associations distribution stretched from Florida to Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Denver, New York and other cities. From New York, flowers were distributed to Europe.While Miami was the main hub, Fort Myers and Tampa were the important components in the transportation network that relied on airlines, rail, and trucking over the decades. Perishable flowers make for demanding work. Green recalls that his father had some very long days. Even though summer was the off-season for growing, he spent six weeks per year traveling and doing collections and sales work. Flowers harvested from the fields were processed in a packinghouse. Flowers were packed even in the heart of downtown Fort Myers, near the foot of Monroe Street and railway. (That packing house burned in the early 1950s and was never rebuilt.) The 1947 photo of the workers at the conveyor belt illustrates part of the process that readied the flowers for shipment. The women in the photo (center foreground) are classifying the buds for stem size and variety, and the men (background) are supervising the mechanical tying and cutting. So what caused the downturn of the flower industry in Fort Myers? The general consensus is shipments from South America into Miami. From there, the flowers were shipped directly to points throughout the nation, leaving Fort Myers out of the loop. Add to that the lure of good prices for land. Residential and commercial development now covers many of the fields where flowers once flourished. Visit the Southwest Florida Museum of History at 2031 Jackson Street to find out more about the flower industry in Fort Myers. For information, call 321-7430 or go to www.

The race was officiated by the Fort Myers Track Club, which prepared the 10K course that started and finished at The Community House. This is one of the most popular races in Southwest Florida, Track Club timer Tom Murphy said. Its a 10K race and there arent that many of those. And people can come to Sanibel and make a day of it after the race. We are very pleased to see this many come out on such a fine day here on Sanibel to race, and we wish you all a very good race, Al Hanser, founder and co-chairman of Sanibel-Captiva Trust Company, Premier Sponsor of the event, said to the runners prior to the start. The Community House was the center of activity before and after the race, serving as the registration point, for the awards ceremony and the race expo of community organizations. The expo was a success this year, and our raffles, which are in their first year, were also successful, Morse added.

Bollettieri To Appear At Tennis Event On SanibelIn 2014, Nick Bolletttieri was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame. His extensive career as a tennis coach includes developing many leading players, from Andre Agassi and Boris Becker to Maria Sharapova and the Williams sisters. The influential coach will be coming to Sanibel. Bollettieri will be part of an exclusive tennis event from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, November 1 at Beachview Tennis Club, where there will be a Round Robin with instruction by Bollettieri and his professional coaching team. Players will receive a signed photograph with Bollettieri taken by island photographer Christopher Koerner, as well as the chance to win a Lily & Co. Jewelers 14-karat gold diamond tennis racquet necklace. The Sanibel Catering Company by Baileys will provide brunch and RS Walsh Landscaping donated efforts for landscaping. Spectators will be surrounded by Round Robin play, Q&A session with Bolletieri and have the chance to win a sterling silver tennis suite (earrings and pendant) donated by Lily & Co. The tennis event will be followed by a public Chocolates & Champagne book signing from 2 to 5 p.m. at Lily & Co., which is sponsoring the day. Bollettieri will sign copies of his authorized biography, Changing The Game, in which he hopes to inspire others to get into the game whatever it may be. There will be a two-karat diamond tennis bracelet by Benny Sofer up for raffle, too. It will be an unforgettable day, said Lily & Co. co-owner Dan Schuyler, an avid tennis player who has been coached by Bollettieri. We are honored to have Nick visit us here on Sanibel. He has been a prominent coach who shares his knowledge and passion for the game with those around him. Bollettieri, a New York native, opened the Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy on 40 acres in Bradenton, Florida, where he transformed the way tennis was taught at the elite junior level. Today, it is the IMG Academy, which purchased NBTA nearly three decades ago. Bollettieri remains pivotal in the development of the academy and its programs.

A 50-1 Longshot At Seasons Start, The Royals Started The World Series On The Cusp Of Baseball Historyby Ed FrankIf you love an underdog, youve got to be pulling for the Kansas City Royals, who began the 2014 baseball season as 50-1 longshots to win the World Series. The first two games of the series were played after our deadline, but the Royals began the series against the San Francisco Giants on the verge of making history going for a record-tying 12 straight playoff wins despite a void of 29 years since their last post-season appearance. Not only has it been 29 years since KC made any playoff appearance, but 1985 was their last World Series victory. Kansas City won eight straight during this years playoff run, beginning with their dramatic 12-inning wild card victory over the As, and followed by sweeping the Angels in the division series and the Orioles in the ALCS. Then, going all the way back to 1985, the Royals down three games to one against the St. Louis Cardinals won the last three games to cop the world title. The 12-game playoff streak was set by the 1927, 1928 and 1932 Yankees. Kansas City already has earned a page in baseball history by becoming the first team to win their first eight games in the post-season. Because Kansas City is a small market, television is concerned that the series will not have the following of a team from New York, Chicago or Los Angeles. But dont tell that to Kansas City fans. In fact, the Las Vegas odds makers had installed the Royals as slight favorites over the Giants. Kansas City probably would have preferred to be underdog, as every favored team in the 2014 post-season has lost. Early this week, online tickets brokers were quoting ticket prices in KC starting at $408 for standing room up to $11,000 for choice club seats. The improbable journey to the World Series by the Royals has captivated baseball fans... except those fans of the teams vanquished by this squad of no-names. As late as July 21, the Royals were buried near the bottom of the American League Central Division with a lousy 48-50 mark. Manager Ned Yosts job reportedly was in jeopardy. But they went 41-23 (.641) the rest of the way to grab a wild card spot on the last day of the regular season. And that momentum carried them to this weeks World Series. Blinding speed, timely hitting, outstanding defense and pitching, particularly almost unhittable relief pitching, are the ingredients of the Royals current success. Should the Royals fail to tie or break the post-season winning streak and you read this column with the Royals down two games to none against the Giants, dont count them out. Their wild ride to the World Series came with come-from-behind victories, extra-inning victories and walk-off hits. Some might say they are a team of destiny. I say they are team that makes you love baseball.continued on page 10B EXTRA 10% OFF EXTRA 10% OFF At Our Fort Myers Location only Elegant Outdoor Living, Industry Partner of ASIDDesigner Program~Worldwide Shipping Family Owned and Operated Since 1987Tommy Bahama, Brown Jordan, Winston, Patio Renaissance, Tropitone, Telescope, Castelle, and many more.

10B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 24, 2014 Sanibel 8-Ball Pool LeagueTrio Of Shooters Earn PerfectionOnly three players posted perfect 4-0 nights in the second week of league play compared to eight in the initial week of shooting. Becky Skog from Fresh Legion Crew, John Bates from Sandycappers and Chip Gelpi from Island Lifers were the 4-0 cue artists. Bunts Ball Busters, league champions in four out of seven years of play, edged into first place on the strength of an 8-8 tie with Sandycappers. This match produced the only stalemated game seen in more than 800 games played since the league started. Bob Buntrock and Kevin Pottorf were the players that had to repeat the game. Pottorf won handily. Island Lifers produced three 3-1 players in Gary Murza, Matt Hall and Kip Buntrock as they coasted to a 9-7 victory over last place Legion Motley Crew. Sanibel Caf captain Rich McCurry blamed his recent northern vacation for the rust in his game as Becky Skog, ace shooter from the Fresh Legion Crew, handed him a 4-0 pasting. McCurry assured his teammates that he would not lose all four games again this season, especially to a girl. Also, Fresh Legion Crew pounded the Caf, 10-6.

11B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 24, 2014 Harry complained to me recently while reading over his estate planning documents. These seem so cold so legal he said slowly, searching for the right words. I understand that these documents have to use this legal language so that my estate gets the benefits of the law, but Im having a hard time knowing that these will be my last words that I communicate to my family. I understood Harry completely. Who wants their last words to read I instruct my trustee to distribute a fraction of my estate, the numerator of which is comprised of the largest amount that would not be taxable blah blah blah? I am sure that no one wants that. Today, Im going to propose that you consider an alternative. This alternative can be made into a very meaningful and fun exercise. What Im referring to is to leave a separate letter apart from your will for each of your most important loved ones. This letter shouldnt be about who gets what from your estate thats for your will and trust. Besides, you dont want to inadvertently say anything that might contradict whats in your legal documents that could lead to beneficiary disputes. Instead what Im talking about here is for you to create something really special. Too often we dont share our true emotions with those closest to us. We often tell our spouses that we love them, but we dont tell them why we love them. We might tell our children that we are proud of them, but we dont tell them why we are proud of them. We may truly admire something about a lifelong friend, but we are often afraid to open up and tell them what weve admired about them or even that we harbored admiration to begin with. How great would it be if we shared all of those thoughts with those closest to us? So I propose that you do just that. Write a letter and tell our loved ones how much theyve meant to us. Then have that letter kept with your will to be opened concurrently. I thought that Id suggest a few basic thoughts for those who might not be as comfortable putting words on paper: Keep It Positive Particularly when you are writing a letter that you dont intend for a loved one to receive until after you have departed this earth, its a good idea to keep it positive. Everyone is subject to valid criticisms for our faults and unfulfilled expectations. Dont use this letter as a means to review those. These are your last words. Dont you want them to leave them with a smile? But do be sincere. Dont heap praise where praise really isnt believable. Everyone has positive qualities. Talk about those here. Write Separate Letters Dont combine everything into one letter. Write one for your spouse. Another to each child or other loved one. That way, your letter can be very personal for that particular person. Open A Spousal Letter With How You Fell In Love You might open a letter to your spouse recalling the first time that you met, and how you knew that you were in love. Talk about the qualities that she or he possessed, and how those qualities grew better over time. Recall Your Childs Early Years For your children, you might open a letter about their early years how much you cherished having them in your life. There may have been certain traits, characteristics or events that foreshadowed later successes they achieved. Talk about those and how you noticed them. Tell Them Why Dont be shy telling your loved ones the whys. Why you are so in love. Why you are so proud. Why you smile when you think about them. With kids, it might even be fun to tell them why you wanted to have kids in the first place, and how different it was raising them as opposed to what you expected before you ever had kids. Review Fun Family Times Or Accomplishments Every relationship has its ups and downs. Many of the ups can be chronicled as happening during a certain event a vacation, a sporting event, a holiday gathering. While everyone might have already grown tired hearing the same stories around the dinner table over and over, you might be able to provide a twist relay why that story meant so much to you, and how it demonstrates your loved ones special qualities. Regrets Generally speaking, its not a good idea to create a list of regrets. But you might have some that would have a positive spin. I regret that I didnt tell you this earlier, and hope that by telling you this now, youll know how much you meant to me, for example. You may regret certain incidents and want to apologize for them. If this is the case, do your best to keep it concise while not trying to place blame or guilt on your loved one. Your Hopes And Dreams Talk about your hopes and dreams for your loved one particularly if they are young. If they arent young anymore, you can talk about how proud you are of their accomplishments. Maybe theyve raised great kids of their own. Perhaps theyve overcome a lot of obstacles and youve noticed how far theyve come. Thats great stuff. Let them know it. Wind It Up Make sure that you leave them with a warm statement. I saw one continued on page 20B Will PowerMeaningful Last Words by Craig R.

12B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 24, 2014 Kern Creates Second Sanibel Scenes Calendarby Jeff LysiakFor the second consecutive year, the owner of Island Graphics has published his own calendar called Sanibel Scenes filled with photographs he has taken of local wildlife taken on and around the island. The 8.5-inch by 11-inch calendar features some of Kerns personal favorite photographs, including a closeup image of an orchid (February) which appears to have a face, scenics of a fish house on Pine Island Sound (January), a beach sunset (July) and cloud formations above the gulf (cover), plus dazzling pictures of wildlife including birds and turtles sunning themselves on a tree branch (April), an ibis (June) and an osprey with a fish clutched in its talon (November). Ive always taken pictures, but now when Im out looking for photographs to take, Im thinking about the calendar, said Kern, who produced his first calendar in 2014 at the suggestion of Sanibel Public Library Director Margaret Mohundro. Its still just as much fun taking pictures, but the best ones come when its spontaneous. Kern received a lot of positive feedback after publishing last years edition, so he began assembling a number of his favorite images to include in his sophomore effort. Picking out this years photos was a little easier, he noted. And I tended to select some of my more recent images for the 2015 calendar. One of the trademarks Kern is known for on the island are his one-liners which often accompany the Sanibel & Captiva Islands Chamber of Commerces weekly email newsletter. Among his wittiest remarks included in the calendar: A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory. Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine. If corn oil is made from corn and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, what is baby oil made from? Im writing this book about reverse psychology. Please dont buy it. I am nobody. Nobody is perfect. Therefore, I am perfect. People always comment on the pictures that gets most of the attention, said Kern. But I also hear a lot about my Bob-isms, as they are called. The 2015 Sanibel Scenes calendar is available at Baileys General Store, Jerrys Market, Island Pharmacy, CVS Pharmacy, Tuttles Sea Horse Shop, Suncatchers Dream and Island Graphics. It is priced at $13.95. I hope that people like this years calendar as much as the last it just keeps evolving and improving, added Kern. And its just a fun thing to do.

Today, more and more homeowners are enlisting the services of interior decorator and designers. Because custom designs are so popular, professional decorators know how to work with your budget, your lifestyle and your design vision in mind. If you are considering using a decorator, there are some basic guidelines you should follow before your project actually begins: Take a tour of your home with the decorator so you both can determine the size of the project. Discuss your familys lifestyle with your decorator. How do you want your house to feel? How do you entertain? Do you have kids and pets in your household? Its wise to set a realistic timetable for completion, especially with a large project. Establish your decorating priorities. Which rooms are the most important for you to complete? Determining a budget and sharing it with your decorator is essential. If you have never decorated before, or have not done so in many years, a decorator can easily give you guidelines to help you determine a budget. This will enable your decorator to find the custom products that best suit your needs. Finally, let your decorator know at the beginning of your project if you have certain items that you want to keep and work around or have any other special requests. Considering these basic guidelines will allow your decorator to work with you to design a project with your wishes, your lifestyle and your budget in mind, saving you from costly errors and resulting in a room you and your family will enjoy for years to come.

19B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 24, 2014 School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My 12-year-old daughter has dyslexia and has trouble reading. Lately, she has said that she can read better on her smartphone and is pestering me about buying e-books for her. While I am happy to see her want to read more, I am having trouble understanding why she likes to read on her phone. What do you know about this? Elena, North Fort Myers Elena, It must be great to see your daughter enjoying reading and wanting to read more. People with dyslexia, approximately 15 percent of all Americans, do struggle with text so its interesting to hear abut your daughters preference. After going through some research, I did find some initial support for why your daughter likes reading on her phone. Dr. Matthew Schneps, astrophysicist, is also dyslexic, and he too has found reading on his phone to be much easier. Once Dr. Schneps discovered that it was easier to read on his phone, he decided to find out if it others with dyslexia would also have more success reading on their phones as well. In his initial study, Schneps monitored 100 students with dyslexia while they read on smart phones to see if it improved their comprehension of science, technology, engineering and math lessons. While it aided some students, not all were impacted so results were mixed. Schneps then wanted to see if the students would have the same improved reading experience with a tablet. He then used an eye tracker to see if students read faster on a smart phone or on a tablet. Overall, the students tested read faster on a smart phone. Because people with dyslexia tend to get distracted by many words on one page, the key, according to Schneps, is only having two or three words in a line. Clearly, more research needs to take place. Right now, it is not clear why some students benefit from reading on devices over paper. Hopefully, Dr. Schneps will continue his research to provide more information to the dyslexic community. Here are two links where you can find e-books to borrow. One is http://app. It is the default app for most public libraries. All you need is your library card to borrow a book. I use this app daily, since I too love reading on my smart phone. The other site,, is geared for people with reading and/or visual disabilities and may be of some assistance for your daughter. 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. Questions for publication may be addressed to smgreggs@gmail. com. Not all questions submitted can be addressed through this publication.

20B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 24, 2014 Golisano Childrens Hospital Opens New Epilepsy Monitoring UnitWhile most people are snuggled up in bed all night, neurodiagnostic technologists like Chris Talbert are up sitting in front of a monitor watching young patients sleep. Talbert is part of the new Epilepsy Monitoring Unit team that tracks young patients, looking for clues to help determine the cause of their seizures. We monitor the patients constantly, Talbert said. We have to watch closely. Most seizures are two to three minutes long. As soon as I see something, I let the nurses know. The first of its kind in the region, the units are designed to give physicians the best opportunity to evaluate seizures and try to determine their cause since seizures often occur while a patient is sleeping. Its scary, said Vilievy Flores of Naples. We have no family history of something like this. Her son, 10-year-old Emilio Suarez, had two unexplained seizures last summer and recently spent a night in the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit for testing. Flores says that having the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit is so important because monitoring Emilios brain for an extended period of time will lead to answers. Its very thorough. During the night, while I was sleeping in the room with him, I woke up and one of the techs was here, adjusting the wires, she said. They were so quiet. The best part for Emilio was sleeping through the test. I didnt know it (the seizures) happened, he said. My brother showed me pictures after I was conscious. Im asleep when it happens. One of the best components of this test is that it can be tailored individually for each child. We can keep a child for an overnight stay or up to several days depending on what information we need, added pediatric neurologist Guillermo Philipps, MD We use this information to determine the best course of treatment. We are really pleased to offer this service because it helps families get answers. Lee Memorial Health System opened the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit at Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida as part of its recent partnership with Miami Childrens Hospital. Like many patient care enhancements at Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida, donations made the purchase of the new equipment possible. Thousands of community members support the hospital each year and their generosity provides tremendous benefits for these young patients. From page 11BWill Powerletter where a father told each of his children that he wanted them to know that he believed in an afterlife, and although his children may no longer be able to touch him or hear him, they could talk to him and he would be there to listen. He told them that he trusted their judgment, and he hoped that they would live the rest of their life with confidence that everything happens for a reason. It struck me as a powerful confirmation of his love, devotion and admiration. I hope that this column helped provide the start of an outline if you should feel this important to do for your loved ones. Im working on a letter for my wife and for each of my children, which I intend to update as the years go by. Im hopeful that these writings will mean more to them than anything material that I leave behind. Craig R. Hersch.

22B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 24, 2014 Eden Energy MedicineWhat Face Wrinkles Tell About Your Healthby Karen L. Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAML (03-12)When gazing into the mirror and finding new wrinkles suddenly appearing, did it ever occur to you that these wrinkles are a direct reflection of the health of the energy in and through your organs? Each emotion we experience is directly associated with an organ of the body. For example, if you are feeling irritable and annoyed for an ongoing period, you will likely find vertical wrinkles starting at the inside edge of your eyebrows and extending about 3/4 of an inch into the forehead. Over the next several weeks, you will learn the meaning of some wrinkles on your face and what to do about them. Having just returned from a week long International meeting with energy medicine practitioners in San Diego and being so intrigued by a workshop on wrinkles presented by Chana Klein, MSEd, EEMAP, MACA, it seemed beneficial to share. Next week, you will learn how to help clear the wrinkles really, it does work. The presenter was 72 and had virtually no wrinkles on her face (and no cosmetic surgery either). So, lets start with this diagram of the face, which depicts the location of the organ energy and emotion. See the notation liver between the eyes and over the eyebrow? If there are wrinkles in these locations or no eyebrows, this is an indication of liver disease. Liver filters toxins, emotionally and physically. If no eyebrows there are likely too many toxins in the body. You will discover that by tuning into what your body is speaking, you can begin to shift habits and reduce your wrinkles. To get started on clearing, begin by making 15 figure 8s around the orbit of eyes (while they are open) with both hands held together, crossing at the bridge of the nose. This takes consistent effort, so include it in your daily routine. Have fun with your energy! Next weeks topic is Clear Wrinkles with Meridian Facial Massage. If you have a question, email Karen Semmelman at SemmEnergyCenter@ Learn more at EEM does not diagnose or cure illness, but working with subtle energies of the body has been shown to help many conditions. deaRPharmacistSchizandra Is My New Favorite Supplementby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Readers: I cannot tell you how frequently people write to me and say they are tired, and frustrated with ineffective medicine. I believe adrenal exhaustion is at the root of pretty much everyones misery and there isnt a drug that nurtures your precious adrenal glands which are above your kidneys. These help you cope with stress. If you have cry easily, have a short fuse or people call you cranky, then you might have insufficient adrenal function. We live in such a fast-paced world with too much stress, too many emails and too many perceived obligations, its easy to burn your adrenals out. Adaptogens are plant-based supplements that support adrenal health and rebuild it. My personal go-to adaptogens have always been ashwagandha, ginseng or rhodiola. Lately, Ive been studying schizandra (sometimes spelled schisandra) and its my newest favorite supplement. Schizandra was prized for centuries by Chinese emperors as an anti-aging supplement. Wu Wei Zi is its Chinese name. Because it improves moisture retention, imperial ladies used it for prettier skin. Its a wonderful skin supplement in fact. But the beauties of schizandra go much deeper than skin. Animal studies have shown that it can help with memory and brings balance between the off and on switch in your brain, so it helps regulate functioning of your cerebral cortex. Think of it as a tonic for your nervous system. Shchizandra is best known to heal the liver and help you with hepatitis. If you have any liver disease, I urge you to ask your doctor if this over the counter herb is okay for you. Adaptogens classically give you energy and better sleep. That sounds contradictory, doesnt it? But adaptogens are smart and seem to know what your body needs. See why I love it? Schizandra increases energy without the jolt of caffeine. As a cellular cleanser schizandra works by increasing your bodys production of a natural antioxidant called gluathione. Glutathione is a strong liver cleanser. You make glutathione yourself, and schizandra helps you make more, which is fabulous! Over time, men notice stronger desire, better sex and more staying power. It helped with benign prostatic hyperplasia according to a 2014 study, and improved the effects of Flomax. Its the berries! The beautiful red berries! Thats where the medicinal action is and the healing compounds are. What really caught my attention are the studies showing anti-cancer benefits, at least in preliminary animal or petri dish studies. Anything that can slow progression of cancer (reduce metastasis) gets my attention. And in 2009, another animal study published in the International Journal of Molecular Medicine found that schizandra may be a useful chemotherapeutic agent specifically for human leukemia U937 cells. I have a more detailed version of this article including more about cancer and other conditions. To receive it, sign up for my newsletter at and I will email it to you. I also have great news, you can once again read hundreds of my past articles now archived at my site; theres even a search box to look up your health issue.

23B ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 24, 2014 Mom And Me by Lizzie and PryceLizzie and Pryce answer your questions and give advice about aging concerns from a two-generational perspective. A mother and daughter team, Lizzie is a retired RN and health educator, and Pryce is a licensed psychotherapist in private practice who specializes in the care of elders and people with chronic illnesses. Dear Mom & Me, I am fed up with the telephone systems that businesses and most professional offices use. When I call, I want to speak to some one to purchase something or make an appointment. Almost without fail, I get the runaround and finally have to leave a message on their voice mail. Yesterday, I called my stockbroker and his message said, Your message is important to me and I will call you back at my convenience. How about my convenience? I am the one spending my money and when I call, I want to speak at my convenience and that is right now. I wonder, are these people in business to help me, give me service, or am I really calling to help them? What has happened to service, or is that another old fashioned, outdated idea? Leslie W. Dear Leslie W., I am fed up also. I get so tired of their laundry list of options, and what I want usually falls between the tracks of their offerings. What annoys me even more is when I finally get to the right office, then I hear, I am sorry, I am out of my office, please leave your name, etc... I often wonder if they are just down the hall at the water cooler, having coffee, or is this a deliberate technique to screen calls and just ignore the ones they do not think important. We older people are maybe just living beyond our time. So many younger people seem to think that we do nothing and have the time to just sit around and wait for their calls. Unfortunately, if you go to another broker, his telephone technique will probably be exactly the same. I hear this complaint very frequently from young and old, but it only seems to get worse with every passing day. Best of luck. Lizzie Dear Leslie W., Do not confuse new technology with poor customer service, and poor customer service with the younger generations. I am sure that before phone mail and voice mail routing technology, poor customer service existed. Poor customer service in the past was probably one of the reasons new technology was created. I agree with you, listening to long lists of phone selections because our options have changed is annoying. I believe improper use of voice mail is the current centurys example of poor customer service. Pryce Lizzie and Pryces email address is Got A Problem? Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: What does it mean to have a shadow side?A: The shadow, according to the late psychologist Carl Jung, is referred to the dark side of our personality. The shadow, the dark side of human nature that resides within each and everyone of us. It was Jungs belief that those who refuse to acknowledge their own faults and shortcomings, their dark side, yet project them onto others, will constantly be living with stress. Jung felt that we must not only acknowledge our dark side, but come to termscontinued on page 30B phone 2397970 email captivaspa@kayc asperson.comSouth Se as Island Resort CaptivaChadwicks Square, 14830 Captiva Drive phone 239 email sundialspa@kayc Sundial Be ach Resort & Sp a Sanibel1451 Middle Gulf Drivekayc the premier spa destinations of the islands soothing fa cia ls brida l sty ling rel a xing ma ssa ge n a tural na il ca re bea utiful blow-outs full-service sa lonlove is my gift to th e worldc e l e bra t e voted Best Massage, Best of the Islands 2013 vote ed Best M a ss a ge Best of the Isl a s 2013 nds ask about our exclusive discount for Sanibel and Captiva residents bea uty inside out lifestyle spa boutiqu e

Rams and Ewes might want to shear their big spending plans until a more favorable financial picture begins to emerge by weeks end. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Thrift counts both at home and at work. So you might want to rethink major purchases or investments. Also, be wary of a so-called revelation about a previous decision. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Both household budgets and workplace accounts might benefit from some judicious trimming of unnecessary expenses. A partnership could lead to an unexpected challenge. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A previously overlooked opportunity could reemerge with a new travel-related matter. Check this out carefully to see if its what you really want before you decide one way or another. LEO (July 23 to August 22) This could be the start of a new career-changing phase, so start marking down your many accomplishments for those who need to know how much you have to offer. Good luck. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Its not too early for the sometimes procrastinating Virgo to start making those long-distance travel plans. The sooner you decide where to go, when to go and how to go, the better. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Financial matters once again figure in any major action you might take regarding career, travel or other endeavors. Youll want a ready reserve to help you back up those moves. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Trying to resolve a problem in a personal relationship could be more difficult than youd expected. Look into the possibility that someone might be interfering for his or her own reasons. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A project you once rejected might be more attractive because of changes that you feel you can now work with. The weekend is especially favorable to family matters. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) This is a good week for the gregarious Goat to enjoy being with people you care for. You might even want to show off those creative kitchen skills youre so adept at. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A colleague might think your attitude is patronizing or even outright insulting. True. That might be his or her problem. But you might want to take some reassuring steps anyway. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Its a good time to jettison those old concepts about a family matter you might have been holding on to. This will help make room for a new and more enlightened way of dealing with it. BORN THIS WEEK: You like to analyze a puzzling situation before you try to resolve it. This makes you excel at getting things done the right way. On Nov. 1, 1512, the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in Rome, one of Italian artist Michelangelos finest works, is first exhibited to the public. Michelangelos epic ceiling frescoes consist of nine panels devoted to biblical world history. The most famous of these is The Creation of Adam, a painting in which the arms of God and Adam are stretching toward each other. On Oct. 27, 1858, Theodore Roosevelt, the future 26th president of the United States, is born in New York City. As president, he insisted on a strong navy, encouraged the construction of the Panama Canal and set aside land for Americas first national parks and monuments. On Oct. 29, 1915, President Woodrow Wilson assured social activist Jane Addams that he had no intention of leading the U.S. into war; he was re-elected on the slogan He Kept Us Out of War. By April 1917 Wilson delivered his war message to Congress and the U.S. entered World War I. On Oct. 28, 1922, hundreds of people gather around radios to hear the first-ever cross-country telephone broadcast of a college football game, played between the Chicago Maroons and the Princeton Tigers. The first live broadcast of a college football game didnt happen until 1924. On Oct. 31, 1961, five years after Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev denounced Stalinism, Joseph Stalins embalmed body is removed from public display in Lenins tomb in Moscows Red Square. When Vladimir Lenin died in 1924, he was embalmed and placed in a mausoleum featuring glass casing. On Oct. 30, 1974, 32-year-old Muhammad Ali becomes the heavyweight champion of the world for the second time when he knocks out 25-year-old champ George Foreman in the Rumble in the Jungle. Seven years before, Ali had lost his title when the government accused him of draft-dodging. On Nov. 2, 1983, President Ronald Reagan signs a bill designating a federal holiday honoring Martin Luther King, Jr., to be observed on the third Monday of January. King was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964. It was American author and critic H.L. Mencken who made the following sage observation: Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit upon his hands, hoist the black flag and begin slitting throats. The condor is the largest flying land bird in the Western Hemisphere -and one of the slowest in reproducing. The female lays only one egg every two years. Those who study such things claim that Napoleon Bonaparte was afraid of cats. Confectioner Milton Hershey suffered through founding two candy companies that ended in failure, then succeeded on his third attempt, and finally sold that company and used the proceeds to found the Hershey Company. After all his hard work, though, he seemed to be less interested in enjoying the fruits of his labors than in helping others. In 1909 he established the Hershey Industrial School for Orphaned Boys, and 10 years later he donated control of the company to a trust for the school. Today the institution is called the Milton Hershey School, and it continues to have a controlling interest in the candy company. Dont consider yourself uneducated if youve never heard of anthropodermic bibliopegy; the practice of binding books with human skin is not (one can hope) common in modern times. Scotsman John Paul Jones is best known for his naval exploits for the nascent United States during the Revolutionary War, and for his infamous utterance, We have not yet begun to fight! Most people dont realize, though, that he was born John Paul and only adopted the surname Jones on his first trip to America, where he came to flee charges in the deaths of two sailors under his command. Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler. -Albert Einstein THIS WEEK IN HISTORY THOUGHT FOR THE DAY STRANGE BUT TRUE

For until the shadow is acknowledged and domesticated, we will never truly be at peace with ourselves. So, how do we learn to embrace our shadow? First, it is important to acknowledge that we all have one. Then call to mind one or two people with whom you feel at odds with, pinpoint what it is in these people that you dislike, despise or distrust, write these characteristics down and explain why. Next, run a personal inventory on your thoughts and actions, the shadow side of your personality (ego), and see if there is some commonality with the individual(s) you list. Having a shadow side does not make you a bad person. Some ways you can embrace your shadow side is to include patience, humor, compassion, etc. and feel free to add any additional thoughts you might have as well.
