Not only did the neighborhood reach the goal of sponsoring their entire shoreline, they more than doubled it. Kelly Sloan, the coordinator of SCCFs Sea Turtle Program, who came to thank the neighborhood, ended up inspiring the group even more by shar ing the astounding news that last sea sons efforts resulted in 20,000 more hatchlings reaching the gulf than ever before. The residents of Chateaux Sur Mer are too humble to take credit, but this neighborhoods contributions had a very real impact on our record-breaking sea son, said Sloan. These residents took an active role in coastal conservation by preserving the natural integrity of their adopted stretch of beach, and our sea turtles and shorebirds have better nesting habitat because of their dedi cated efforts. Their generous donation directly funded sea turtle conservation on Sanibel and Captiva, and their enthu siastic support and involvement had a tremendous effect on the overall success of our 2017 season. Not only does Chateaux Sur Mer intend to continue their Adopt-A-Beach continued on page 19 Neighbors from Chateaux Sur Mer were joined by Kelly Sloan, SCCFs Sea Turtle Program coordinator, to toast the record breaking results achieved through their Adopt-A-Beach efforts photo provided Spring Music Spectacular Takes The Stage April 12by Jeff LysiakOn Thursday April 12, students from The Sanibel School Seahorse Chorale, elementary school choir and performing arts classes will perform at the annual Spring Music Spectacular, with the showcase starting at 6:30 p.m. The inspiration for this years show case came from the musical were work ing on, Disneys The Lion King Jr. w hich will be staged later this spring, said Joey Giangreco, school music director.

ISLAND SUN APRIL 6, 20186 Program On Separation Of Church And StateOn Sunday, April 8, Dawn Schuman will give an historical background on the issue and ask the question: is there a separation between church and state? Should there be? And if not, what are the alternatives. A discussion will follow. The Unitarian Universalists of the Island will hear this presentation in Fellowship Hall of Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ, located at 2050 Periwinkle Way. The service begins at 5 p.m. and the public is welcome to attend. Schuman was born in Chicago and was raised in Oak Park, Illinois. She received her bachelor of arts degree in history and education with a minor in religion from DePauw University. She received her masters degree at Purdue University. After three children and 10 years of teaching, she became deeply involved in community organizations. She co-chaired the citizens action committee that wrote the master plan for the Village of Oak Park. A key part of the plan was to use the towns roots to create its future. She became the founding president of the Frank Lloyd Wright Home & Studio and then its first executive director. From that point on, her major activities centered around historic preservation. She served on the property council of the National Trust for Historic Preservation as well as a founder of Preservation Action, a national preservation lobbying organization. Over the years, she has served on 34 other national, state and local boards as well as a corporate board of trustees. Her work spanned 50 years in several states. Schuman recently received a lifetime achievement award from the State of Michigan, plus other state and national recognitions. Her focus has been on heritage preservation and conservation of natural resources. She has lived on Sanibel since 2006 and has been active on the environmental committee of both the Captiva Island Yacht Club and the West Rocks Civic Association.

Church Group Attends Bahamas Mission Cruisesubmitted by Cyndie HoggattFrom March 16 to 19, 52 people ranging in age from 1 through 85 began a different type of mission trip sponsored by Sanibel Community Church (SCC). The vision was to have a mission trip that was intergenerational, something that people of all ages could attend. The SCC group embarked on their journey from Miami, Florida on the Enchantment of the Seas with Royal Caribbean cruise line, en route to Nassau, Bahamas. For many on the cruise, it was their first mission trip. The group had morning and evening services on the boat each day. Those invited to join the team this year were Pete and Alice Brokopp with their children, Charity and Sammy, and Dave and Tara Powers with their son, Malachi. Pete was the trips missionary speaker and Dave and Tara led the group in anointed worship. Pete Brokopp grew up as a missionary kid as his parents served in Africa, and he and his family later served in Burkina Faso, Africa as missionaries. He is a dynamic public speaker. Within this past year, he took a position with Envision Atlanta, a missionary base for youth ministry teams and teams of all ages to come and work in the Clarkston area with refuges. They are there to be the hands and feet of Jesus to those who are in need. Later this summer, a team of middle school students and leaders from SCC will be traveling to Clarkston to work with this missions organization. Dave and Tara Powers have been leading worship for over 20 years and are passionate about leading people into a deeper friendship with Jesus. They have been involved in several different ministries throughout the past years, and are starting their own tour beginning in April of this year. In addition to the daily mission continued on page 12 Mission team in front of Chapel on the Hill in Nassau, Bahamas photos provided Ranfurly Homes for Children in Nassau, Bahamas

A member of the council since 2007, Ruane was elected by a vote of 3 to 2 to his ninth consecutive term as mayor. Fellow Councilman Jason Maughan had nominated Councilman Chauncey Goss for the post, as he did last year, but Ruane, Denham and Smiths votes carried the election. Denham, who has served on the council since 2005, was the only nominee for the vice mayor post. He has now served in that capacity for eight terms. Smith joined the council last year following Jennings resignation, and ran unopposed to serve the remainder of his term. Following the elections, members of the council took time to honor five members of the Sanibel Police Department, including Det. John Eicher and officers Magdiel Bernier, Matthew Casola, Korey McCloughen and Michelle Rose. While Eicher was recognized as the citys Employee of the Second Quarter, the remaining officers were given proclamations in recognition of their lifesaving incidents in January and February. In other business, Aaron Pruss, chairman of the Charter Review Committee, delivered his final report to the council. After meeting four times between December and March, the committee decided not to make any recommendations to alter the standing document. It was, in fact, a lot of work, said Pruss. I think we had a good dialog all along... it was an enjoyable and educational experience. Also, members of the council unanimously approved a permit allowing alcohol sales at the Seahorse Festival, a fundraiser for The Sanibel School to be held on Saturday, May 5 at Sanibel Community Park. Last month, representatives of the school had requested the permit to stage the event on April 21. However, due to a conflict with two other events being held at The Community House and the Herb Strauss Theater that same day, it was suggested that the Seahorse Festival be moved to another date. Finally, Ruane suggested that the city investigate whether to create a community services division, consolidating Sanibels public works, planning and building departments for the purposes of streamlining the application process for homeowners and contractors submitting plans for building renovations. City Manager Judie Zimomra was authorized to look at what other cities who have created a community services division have done, and bring back a report at the June council meeting.

Dr. Ran Niehoff photo provided Response to the ad placed by a group of Sanibel CatholicsAs a member of St. Isabel Catholic Church, I have watched the happenings in our community since October 28, 2016 when Fr. Christopher Senk was placed on administrative leave. Like most of the members of our parish, I felt shock, disbelief and sadness. A year and a half has passed and Fr. Chris situation has not been resolved. However, more disturbing and disheartening for me has been to stand by and watch the response of The Parishioners for Justice. You have chosen to express your resentment toward the bishop and his decision to remove Fr. Chris with acts of deance. These acts have been leveled at our current spiritual leader, Fr. Joseph Gates and the administrative staff. I dont understand this thinking. For me, the issue is between Fr. Chris, Bishop Dewane and God. In no way did Fr. Joseph or he administrative staff cause or contribute to Fr. Chris situation. In your ad you write that many parishioners, dissatised and spiritually unfullled by the temporary priest in residence have chosen to go off-island to other Catholic churches. You say some have decided to worship in other faith communities. I have to ask, was your faith and spirituality founded in the person of Fr. Chris or in your faith in Jesus Christ and the church He established? When you attended Mass, were you spiritually fullled by the presence and preaching of Fr. Chris, or by the celebration of the Holy Eucharist performed by an ordained priest of God? Change is always uncomfortable. You say there have been other changes that have happened at the church that have also caused parishioners and visitors to stop attending Mass at St. Isabel Church. Again I ask, what changes have been so great and vital to your faith to cause you to stop attending Mass at St. Isabel? Have you witnessed blasphemy? Grave acts of disrespect toward the Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist? Drastic changes in the celebration of Holy Mass as ordained by the Catholic Church? My sense is that these changes you mention have been minor and not essential to the practice of our faith. So many of you are people that I have loved and admired over my years as a member of St. Isabel Church. I ask you as one who comes to you humbly and with a loving heart to reexamine your actions and your motives. Have your actions brought forth good fruit or have they been tainted with a false sense of loyalty and pride?Submitted and payed for by Carol Bradshaw American Legion Post 123American Legion Post 123 is having a barbecue this Sunday, April 8.

11 ISLAND SUN APRIL 6, 2018Barbara Cecalas subtitle for her Marvelous Mollusks of Micronesia presentation and display is Living in the Marshall Islands, Smack Dab in the Middle of the Pacific Ocean. On Tuesday, April 17 beginning at 2 p.m., Cecala will narrate a slideshow, telling of her adventures. She will also have her remarkable shell collection on display. The program will be held in Fellowship Hall at Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ and is free and open to the public. Cecala presented the mollusk-related portion of her talk last year to a standing-room-only crowd for the Sanibel-Captiva Shell Club at the BaileyMatthews National Shell Museum. She has now expanded her program well beyond the scope of shells to include tales of her fascinating life on a tropical island in the middle of Micronesia. Early in the 1970s, my husband, daughter and I lived for 16 months on Kwajalein, an island in the middle of the Pacific. Its fitting logo was Almost Heaven, said Cecala. My husband was an IBMer and was a subcontractor to the Army working on flight programs. I, as a young mother, was a dependent, and free to live a marvelous life in this tropical paradise. My free time was filled with golf, cycling and scuba diving.We had access to boats, air for our tanks and the worlds largest lagoon. We dove on sunken Japanese ships, we dove to photograph the colorful fish, and we dove to find shells. Cecalas slides are comprised of stunning images of the shells, fish and ships as well as the Marshall Islands themselves. Her shell collection contains choice specimens not found on Sanibel beaches. Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ is located at 2050 Periwinkle Way, across from the Periwinkle Place Shopping Center. For more information, call 472-0497 or visit www.sanibelucc.org. The focus of Barbara Cecalas April 17 slideshow will be her adventures on the Micronesian island she once called home. She will also display the shells she collected there. photo provided Program On Mollusks Of Micronesia At Sanibel Church New Curriculum For Youth MinistryH2O, the Sanibel Community Church student ministry, began a new curriculum for high school students entitled Generation Change by financial expert Dave Ramsey. Ramseys curriculum focuses on godly, smart financial decisions and how to plan for the future. It also explores who we are in God, how to manage finances properly, and how to pay for college and many other tough challenges facing young people early on in life. This study will continue through the end of May. H2O is also doing a Questions Answered series with the middle school students, focusing on answering any questions that they have about life and God. Students write out their questions each week, then pastoral staff and other members of the community answer these questions in an open forum setting. Students will also be learning how to write out and share their personal testimonies of how God has worked in their lives. H2O wrapped up its curriculum focused on healthy Christian friendships this past week. H2O Student Ministries is a youth ministry program for sixth grade through 12th grade young men and women. The group meets on Wednesday evenings from 5 to 7 p.m. for middle school students, 6 to 8 p.m. for high school students, and on Sunday mornings from 11 a.m. to noon in the youth center at Sanibel Community Church. All students on the islands and surrounding communities are welcome to attend. Sanibel Community Church is an evangelical, non-denominational congregation and is located at 1740 Periwinkle Way (next to Jerrys Market). For more information, contact Youth Pastor Kevin Schafer at 472-2684 or kevin@sanibelchurch.com. Over 1,300 people from all over the country and as far away as Austria and Kuwait have signed a petition to ask the Lee County Commissioners to resolve the dispute over the ownership of the SHELL LOVE BUG in favor of its creator, Pam Rambo. When Pam was asked by the Lee County Visitor and Convention Bureau (VCB) to come up with ideas to promote the rst National Seashell Day, Pam conceived a mobile sculpture covered in shells. In a partnership agreement, Lee VCB purchased a 2005 VW convertible with Pam agreeing that if she were to decorate it, the title to the car would be signed over to her. She would have ownership of the vehicle after the June 20, 2016 event. Using her own extensive shell collection and the treasured shells of many of her fellow shellers, she created the SHELL LOVE BUG, an artfully covered masterpiece, using 22,000 perfect local shells! The SHELL LOVE BUG was a spectacular success, drawing attention, excitement and appreciation around the world! The Lee VCB has won Florida and National awards, after which, the Lee VCB began to deny Pam possession of her completed creation, and they continue to claim ownership. The matter is now in litigation because Pam Rambo is the rightful owner of her United States registered copyrighted sculpture Shell Love Bug. Lee County Commissioners are in a position to resolve this dispute before it becomes a FEDERAL court case. Take time to read some of the hundreds of comments left on the website and feel free to add your own.

Plant SmartTamarindby Gerri ReavesTamarind ( Tamarindus indica ) is a large evergreen tree thought to originate from eastern Africa or the East Indies. This member of the pea, or bean, family is also called Indian-date and is not to be confused with the native wild tamarind ( Lysiloma latisiliquum ). This tree with a massive trunk grows up to 65 feet or higher. Dense foliage makes it a good shade tree. It has excellent wind resistance, low water needs, medium salt tolerance and a moderate growth rate. The stocky rough-textured trunk is sometimes twisted. The branches are drooping, and, with age, the tree develops a domed crown. The foliage is fern-like and finetextured. Leaves of 5to 10-inches long consist of as many as 30 pairs of elliptical leaflets, each less than an inch long. Clusters of pale yellow star-like flowers with purplish or reddish veins appear in spring. The smooth brittle fruit pod measures up to six inches long. Cinnamon-brown and brittle, it is constricted between the large seeds. The pod contains edible pulp and usually ripens in late spring into summer. That sweet-sour pulp is used to make chutney, curries, soft drinks and sauces such as the popular Worcestershire sauce. Tamarind is used in Indian and Southeast Asian cuisines, and tamarind paste is a staple in Asian food stores. The plant has many medicinal uses. This tree is easy to grow in South Florida and needs little maintenance. When choosing a spot for it, give it full sun and consider that the sticky pods will fall on patios or walkways.

Clean Clear Water Equals Really Big Troutby Capt. Matt MitchellFishing during the past weeks warming trend was a much needed change from the flip-flopping hot/ cold weather we experienced the entire month of March. If you add in crystal clear water in the middle to northern sound and use live shiners for bait again, even a few days of crazy winds could not take the smile off my face. Now that we are finally in April the last strong cold fronts should be behind us. Now our fishing will kick into high gear. After a prolonged winter, game fish are coming out of their winter hideouts hungry and ready to eat. Really big trout were the target species for me most of this week. During these clean clear water times, we catch some real giants. Our spring trout bite when we are lucky enough to have the clear water like we do now is about as good as it gets all year. Spotting these laid-up fish while riding up in the tower of my boat can make fishing super easy at times. Once I do find them its often just a matter of returning to these same sand potholes to catch them for what can be days in a row. Some of the smaller mangrove islands in the middle to northern sound where the most productive big trout spots for me this week. The best big trout action came from north Cork Key. Many of these tiny little mangrove islands that dont even have names have sand holes right up against them. Just out from them are the places these trout like to hang out. Depending on the wind and tide movement, we were able to sit as far out as possible. Making a long accurate cast to these sand holes was key to catching these big trout along with a few 25-inch-plus monsters. Many of these islands can only be reached on the higher water incoming tides. Shallow sand holes on the open grass flats also held lots and lots of trout of all sizes during the lower water periods. Once we found that one magic sand hole, we would often catch our limit of fish at just that one stop. Many of these trout are just shy or even over the 20-inch max. Pitching big live free-lined shiners into these sand holes gave clients some awesome visuals as these big trout often blew up time and time again as they chased and missed the bait. When you find this clean clear water, the big trout will be there. 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 captmattmitchell@aol. com. ISLAND MARINE SERVICES, INC.

CROW Case Of The Week: Baby Birds by Bob PetcherIt is said that springtime represents new beginnings. In the wild, that phrase translates to newborns as many animals give birth to their young at this time of year. In the spring months, some of the most common patients CROW officials see at the hospital are baby birds when many species including common grackles, northern mockingbirds and mourning doves have begun to hatch. According to Dr. Malka Spektor, CROW veterinary intern, statistics show that approximately one quarter of CROW patients taken in during the past month were baby birds. Unfortunately, many of these young patients (either newly born nestlings or fledglings that are still developing wing feathers) should not be patients at all because they are not injured or orphaned. They are mistakenly brought to CROW or a drop-off site when they are found on the ground. These young birds are still dependent on their parents yet are grounded when they either fall from their nests, drop during flight training or their nests get blown out of the trees. CROW officials call these birds and other baby creatures abducted animals. With a little effort, a lost bird can often be returned to the nest by the person who finds it without it having to make a trip to the Sanibel clinic. We call patients abducted when they are healthy and have parents, but are taken out of the wild and brought to us because people think they are orphans, said Dr. Spektor. When we can, we will try to re-nest them. If You Care Leave It There is a CROW program developed by Dr. Heather Barron, CROWs hospital direc tor, in an effort to reduce the number of abducted animals entering the clinic. The program offers a brochure that allows one to be educated on the difference between orphaned and abducted and what one can do once faced in a possible rescue scenario. If You Care Leave It There is a program to educate the public that a wild animal baby will do best when left in the wild. Often times, the parents are not at the nests all the time; often baby birds will fledge and be on the ground, with their parents around to keep an eye on them, even if you dont see the parents, said Dr. Spektor. We want to make sure the babies we get are true orphans, not abducted from their parents. If there is an obvious injury, or if there is no sign of the parents signs are different for different species then they should be brought in. But always call first and we can explain what to look out for. According to the brochure: Humans are never a young animals best hope for survival. They are its last hope. A young animal should only be removed from the wild after all avenues to reunite it with an adult animal are exhausted. Within the brochure, Dr. Barron offers information that everyone must adhere to: If you happen to see a young, wild animal, please leave it alone unless there appears to be something wrong a clear injury or a fallen nest. If the nest has fallen out of a tree but the young inside the nest appear healthy, please replace the nest in the tree as high up as you can reach. If this is not possible, consider placing the nest in nearby bushes or even nailing it to the side of the tree in an area where the young will have some shade and shelter from the elements. If the nest itself is missing or damaged, an artificial nest may be created. The educational program appears to be working. Dr. Spektor stated that approxi mately 20 to 30 percent of these young patients ar e abducted, which is down from 80 percent before the program was implemented couple of years ago. To become better educated on If You Care Leave It There, pick up a hard copy of the program brochure at CROWs Visitor Education Center at 3883 Sanibel Captiva Road or visit www.crowclinic.org/ articles/if-you-care-leave-it-there to view it online.

Shell Of The WeekRose Corbulaby Jos H. Leal, PhD, BaileyMatthews National Shell Museum Science Director and CuratorThe Rose Corbula, Caryocorbula dietziana (C.B. Adams, 1852), is a small (about 8 mm, or 0.3-inch) locally found species belonging to a group of bivalves infamous for the difficult and confusing taxonomy, the family Corbulidae, also known as Basket Clams. Its shell has the posterior ridge typical of members of the family. Like in all other species of Corbulidae, the right valve is larger than the left one. The Rose Corbula may be rose, whitish, or cream-colored, sometimes showing flecks of gray or light-brown. The inner surfaces of the valves may be tinged brown near the margins.

19 ISLAND SUN APRIL 6, 2018 Lecture Takes Flight With Swallow-Tailed KitesDr. Kenneth Meyer has twice received a Partners in Flight National Research Award for studying the conservation biology of species at risk, and also a National Wildlife Stewardship Award from the Sustainable Forestry Initiative for studies of swallow-tailed kites. On Friday, April 13, he will be presenting two free programs titled Swallowtailed Kites: 10,000 Miles to Survival at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., the final presentation of the 2018 Ding Darling Lecture Series at JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel. Prior to the 1900s, swallow-tailed kites nested in 21 states, but a decline from 1880 to 1940 resulted in the current scattered population mainly in six southeastern states, including Florida. Since 1996, Meyer, executive director of the Avian Research and Conservation Institute (ARCI), with his staff in Gainesville, Florida, has used satellite telemetry to describe the 10,000-mile round-trip migration of swallow-tailed kites and to identify impacts on survival and reproduction. Meyer co-founded ARCI in 1997. He and his team have studied the behavior and ecology of 16 species of birds of conservation concern from eastern Canada to Puerto Rico. He is currently conducting satellite telemetry studies on mangrove cuckoos and reddish egrets at Ding Darling Refuge, funded by the Ding Darling Wildlife SocietyFriends of the Refuge (DDWS). HighTower/Thomas & Swartz Wealth Management sponsors the refuges 12-lecture series with support from DDWS. Seating for the lectures is limited and available on a first-come basis. Early arrivals can save one seat each with personal items and then may explore the Visitor & Education Center or Indigo Trail before the lecture starts. Saved seats must be filled 15 minutes before lecture time. As usual, Wildlife Drive closes on Friday, but visitors are welcome to enjoy the free Visitor & Education Center, Indigo Trail and recreational opportunities at Tarpon Bay Explorers, the refuges official recreation concession located at its Tarpon Bay Recreation Area. Note: Opinions expressed in guest lectures do not necessarily reflect the views of refuge and DDWS management, staff, and board of directors. For more information, call 472-1100 ext. 241 or log on to www.dingdarlingsociety. org/articles/lecture-and-film-series.

They have even offered to share email templates and materials with other neighborhood associations to make it easier for others to get their homeowners to join in. Promoting the Adopt-A-Beach initiative was easy and fun. Our neighbors responded immediately with support and we all became even more engaged in and excited about it as a result of SCCFs updates on how many nests there were, sightings and actual hatchlings there were right in our neighborhood, said Robin Coleman, the neighborhoods corresponding secretary. Its a wonderful project that has provided enjoyment for all of us. This years nesting season begins on April 15 and all funds donated to AdoptA-Beach go directly and solely to sea turtle monitoring and research. Knowing our neighborhood helped more sea turtles reach the sea is remarkable, Linda Linsmayer said. And we felt even more involved in turtle nesting because SCCF sent such detailed updates about what was happening right on our neighborhoods beach. Others in the neighborhood extolled deeply personal benefits of being part of something greater, too. Stephanie Koven, whose husband Ted has since passed away, shared, While he was extremely ill, my husband truly looked forward to the reports about sea turtle activity. He was happy to know that such good work was being done at our beach to support the turtles. Jack Allen added, We were drawn to Sanibel by its natural beauty and biodiversity. We were thrilled that the Adopt-A-Beach Program offered us the opportunity to preserve and, hopefully, enhance life on this magical island for us and our sea turtle visitors. Island neighborhoods interested in participating in the Adopt-A-Beach Program are encouraged to contact Kelly Sloan by email at ksloan@sccf.org.

23 ISLAND SUN APRIL 6, 2018 Garden Club Members Tour Botanical Sites March was a busy month for members of the Shell Islands Garden Club, with many members on the move. Instead of a regular meeting, club members carpooled to view a peek at two local gardens whose owners clearly love them and enjoy sharing them. Each garden has its own special feel and is vastly different from one another. Owners Lucy Roth and Merrill Taylor were on hand to welcome the ladies and answer questions. The following week, 18 members of the club traveled by bus to the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota. Selby Gardens is known for its orchid and bromeliad collection as well as special exhibitions. The current special exhibit features Andy Warhol, who created over 10,000 flower images in his lifetime. Members were amazed at this aspect of Warhols career outside of his famous Campbells Soup can art. Lunch followed at Troyers Dutch Heritage restaurant. Two more months remain for regular club meetings, which are held on the second Tuesday of the month at The Community House. A small group of year-round residents meet during the summer for lunch and excursions. Anyone interested in membership should contact president Gerri Perkins at 201-400-2078 or gerritlc@aol.com.

Beer, Wine, Doggy Treats and Fun! Hosted by Island Paws and Over Easy Cafe Gear Guide: Kayaks, Part IIby Ocean Tribe PaddlersLast week, we talked about recreational touring kayaks. This week, we will continue our exploration of kayaks pertinent to the waters of Southwest Florida; sea kayaks. Sea kayaks are the higher-performance, larger sibling of recreational touring kayaks. They are designed for open ocean expeditions. Sea kayaks look like longer, thinner versions of recreational touring kayaks, but there are some subtle elements that make them an entirely different craft. Sea kayaks are far narrower, which improves their ability to cut through the water. Their more pronounced bow is designed to carve through higher surf, but can become a hindrance in very high winds, as it tends to act like a sail. Sea kayaks also tend to be much longer than recreational touring kayaks, which makes them faster, but harder to turn. As a result, they tend to come with rudders or skegs. Rudders are flat pieces, typically made of plastic, that attach to the stern of the kayak. They are connected to foot pedals by wires. By depressing one foot or the other, one can steer the kayak left or right while maintaining a consistent forward stroke. Skegs are similar to rudders, but serve a slightly different function. They can be raised or lowered to aid in staying on a straight course. In other words, they are designed to prevent turning. Skegs are particularly helpful in high cross winds. If you are mainly interested in paddling around calm, protected waters, a recreational touring kayak is probably your best choice. For paddlers feeling the call of the open ocean, consider purchasing a sea kayak. Or, if you want to do it all, maybe you need one of each. Happy paddling! Ocean Tribe Paddlers is a club that helps the Southwest Florida paddling community better explore, enjoy and understand the ocean. Visit www. oceantribepaddlers.org or follow on Facebook to learn more. Free Guided Beach Walk Next SaturdayOn Saturday, April 7, Sanibel Sea School will offer a free community beach walk. The walk will be guided by Sam Lucas, a marine educator who is also the organizations conservation initiative coordinator. This walk will provide an opportunity for participants to learn about some of the items that commonly wash ashore on the beaches. This is our last community beach walk of the season, so its a great day to join us if you have not yet attended, said Lucas. Recent strong winds have blown many interesting objects ashore, so there will be plenty to look at and learn about, she added. To join the walk, meet at Sanibel Sea Schools Flagship Campus, located at 455 Periwinkle Way, at 9 a.m. The walk will last approximately two hours, but you are welcome to come and go at your leisure. All ages are welcome, but children must be accompanied by an adult. Sanibel Sea School is a 501(c)3 nonprofit whose mission is to improve the oceans future, one person at a time.

Kids in the CCSWFL after school programs will interact with the Sea Schools marine science educators twice each month, once in their classroom and once during a field-based experience at the beach. The group enjoyed its first visit to Causeway Islands Park in mid-March. During the field trip, participants had a chance to swim and practice using a seine net. They caught and released pinfish, Atlantic silversides and comb jellies. Ive never seen a group so excited to try the net, said educator Char Cadow. These kids would have seined all day, if time allowed. The students have already started a countdown to the date of their next visit. This partnership is made possible by Sanibel Sea Schools donor-supported scholarship fund, which also funds partnerships with the Gladiolus Center for Learning and Development, the Heights Foundation, the Pine Manor Improvement Association, the PACE Center for Girls, Lee and Hendry County Schools and others.

From page 1Strauss Theaterfell in love with it, said Pankow, who was chosen by the plays director Bill Taylor to portray the nameless protagonist with a tough, cocky selfsatisfaction. The story of being a soldier, a mother and wife spoke to me. I am honored to be telling this story. In the plays first half, Pankows character describes the rush she gets in flight, and the easy camaraderie she shares with fellow (and mostly male) pilots. Shes a woman who is as happy in her skin as she is in her flight suit. So, shes taken by surprise when she finds herself falling for a man one that is not intimidated by her tough-guy job and unexpectedly becomes pregnant. Suddenly, her life changes as she is forced to be grounded and reassigned to fly drones in a windowless trailer in the Las Vegas desert. The boundaries between the desert in which she lives and the one she patrols half a world away begin to blur as pressure to track a high-profile target mounts. There are so many important messages within this story, so I hope the audience will leave asking questions, and it sparks conversations, said Pankow. It truly examines aspects of being a wife or mother or soldier that forces you to ask questions. Grounded will target assumptions about war, family and the power of storytelling. Pankow earned a masters degree in fine arts from the University of Florida and first appeared on the Strauss stage two years ago in A Christmas Carol. She also appeared in the recent production of Noises Off at the Strauss and has expanded her career across the country over the past couple of years. I love performing at the BIG ARTS Strauss Theater, said Pankow. The audiences are always great. There will be an opening reception at 6:30 p.m. on April 11 and the curtain goes up at 7:30 p.m. The BIG ARTS Herb Strauss Theater is located at 2200 Periwinkle Way.

27 ISLAND SUN APRIL 6, 2018 Naturalists Advise: Treat Beach Visits Like A Questby Jeff LysiakDuring last weeks Friday Lecture Series presentation at the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, professional naturalists Blair and Dawn Witherington shared their extensive knowledge of sea turtles and Florida conservation efforts with a capacity crowd during two lectures at the Visitor & Education Center. The husband and wife team discussed their mutual compulsion to seek, collect, catalog, photograph, identify and research the diversity of Floridas beaches. Over their 20 years together, the couples quest has left sandy footprints from the Florida Panhandle south through the Keys and northward to the Georgia border. We think that its important for kids to have a broad experience outdoors, said Blair Witherington, a conservation programs manager for Disneys animal programs. Theres lots that we can do to get kids out in nature. The Witheringtons have authored five books on natural history topics, including Floridas Living Beaches: A Beachcombers Guide, Floridas Seashells, Living Beaches of Georgia and the Carolinas: A Beachcombers Guide and Seashells of Georgia and the Carolinas: A Beachcombers Guide During his PowerPoint presentation, Blair suggested to the crowd that when visiting the beach, take the opportunity to notice that every time, youre going to experience something different. There are lots of things that are happening on our beaches and to our beaches, he said. No two beaches are exactly the same, and on any given day, the beach is literally alive with animals that live on the beach, live near the beach or fly above the beach. A graphic design artist and scientific illustrator trained at the art institutes of Colorado and Fort Lauderdale, Dawn continued on page 30 Professional naturalist Blair Witherington speaking to a capacity crowd at the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge photos by Jeff Lysiak The Witheringtons recommended MacArthur State Park in North Palm Beach, Florida as the best place in the state to see leatherback sea turtles laying their eggs

In order to make your beach-going experiences more compelling and memorable, the couple suggested treating each visit like a quest. Create a wish list of animals or vegetation that youd like to see, or plan a personal scavenger hunt of seashells youd like to find. Find something that sparks your curiosity, which is the greatest tool to find your own happiness, noted Blair. And keep in mind that everything has its own story to tell. Along with creating your own quest, the couple suggested that planning a proper strategy including the places, seasons, tidal cycle, area of the beach being explored and the weather may help you in completing each quest. After a big storm is a really good time to visit the beach, they said. It can really stir things up. The Witheringtons recently released the second edition of Floridas Living Beaches: A Guide for the Curious Beachcomber which was widely praised by those who enjoy exploring the nature of beaches. This comprehensive guide has even more to satisfy the curious beachcomber, including expanded content and additional accounts with more than 1,800 full-color photographs, maps and illustrations. Following their presentations, the Witheringtons signed copies of their books in front of the Refuge Nature Store. Proceeds from Nature Store sales directly benefit refuge wildlife, education and research. Sea Turtles of the World poster by Dawn Witherington image provided

NOW SERVING DINNER! Dec 15-May 1 Dinner Reservations Recommended The Community HouseRosemaryby Resident Chef Jarred HarrisRosemary is a perennial evergreen herb. It is one of the most versatile herbs available. It can be used for culinary and medicinal purposes. This fragrant herb is member of the mint family and produces beautiful blue flowers. I grow rosemary in my garden because I like to cook with it, it attracts bees and it deters pests such as rats and mosquitos. Rosemary gets its name from the Latin word Rosmarinus, which means dew of the sea or sea mist. Wild rosemary can be found growing on coastal cliffs in France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece and North Africa. Ancient Greeks believed that rosemary could help strengthen the memory, and they also used it to treat toothaches, headaches and flatulence. The Romans used rosemary infusions to treat jaundice and as a digestive aid. Rosemary has many health benefits. It contains vitamin C, iron, magnesium and zinc. Rosemary also contains volatile oils which are stimulating and increase brain alertness. In fact, certain types of rosemary infused teas are better stimulants than coffee. In addition, rosemary has antiseptic properties and has been used for years to treat cold sores, sore throat, canker sores and help treat the symptoms of colds and flu. Rosemary oil is used to treat skin ir ritations and bruises because it helps speed up the healing pr ocess. Because rosemary oil stimulates circulation, it is used to treat aching joints and muscle pain. If you are an avid cook, try a little rosemary in your recipes that have thyme in them. The two herbs together add a unique richness to the flavor of the dish. If you are not a foodie, here is a simple recipe to try. Rosemary and Lemon Meringues Ingredients 4 large egg whites (at room temperature) tsp. cream of tartar cup granulated sugar 1 tsp. fresh rosemary (chopped very fine) Zest of lemon Method Preheat oven to 200F. Line a baking tray with grease proof or parchment paper. Using a stand mixer with a whisk attachment, add the egg whites and cream of tartar to the mixing bowl and whisk on medium speed until the whites start to become foamy. Increase the mixer speed and gradually add the sugar 1 tbsp. at a time. Mix until the whites are glossy and stiff peaks are formed. Gently fold in the rosemary and lemon zest and blend well. Using a tablespoon, spoon the me ringues onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 2 hours. T urn the oven off and let the meringues stay in the oven for another hour (alternately, the meringues can be placed in a 175F oven and cooked overnight). Remove the meringues from the oven and serve with fresh berries and whipped cream. Meringues can be stored in an airtight container for a week.

Current Coastal Keepers initiatives include Bring Your Own Bag and Strawless on Sanibel. Both educational campaigns are designed to decrease the amount of single-use, disposable plastic consumed and discarded in the area, and to provide simple alternatives for citizens. The Launch provided the per fect opportunity to introduce ourselves t o the community, share our story, and tell people about the exciting projects we are planning, said Lucas.

ISLAND SUN APRIL 6, 201834 SUN Book ReviewThe Complete Diaries Of Young Arthur Conan Doyleby Di SaggauSanibel author John Raffensperger had five books published in less than a year. I first reviewed The Education of a Surgeon in March of 2017 and Dont Hang My Friend a few months ago. Now I am going to attempt to review The Complete Diaries of Young Arthur Conan Doyle, which is three books in one. Its a whopper and is a must read for all mystery lovers, especially those who are Sherlock Holmes fans. The book includes three adventure books, Adventures in the Wild West in 1878, Adventures in Russia 1881, and Adventures in America 1883. The three diaries grew out of an article Raffensperger published in a surgical journal titled Was the Real Sherlock Holmes a Pediatric Surgeon? Dr. Joseph Bell, an Edinburgh surgeon and the inspiration for Sherlock Holmes was the first surgeon to the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh. He pioneered many operations for children. The three diaries all start with a medical diagnostic problem and there are operations, criminal problems, most with a medical background in all three stories. Each is linked to political conspiracies. The first book details how Doyle, at the age of 19, and Dr. Bell come to America on a secret forensic mission to solve a string of grisly and mysterious murders. In each murder, the thyroid gland has been removed from the body. The book involves Doyles real-life contemporaries, including Robert Louis Stevenson, Allen Pinkerton and Henry Ward Beecher whose sister authored Uncle Toms Cabin. Its an exciting mix of murder, mystery and literary history with a little humor thrown in for good measure. Adventures in Russia, the second of the lost diaries takes place when Doyle was a 22-year-old student at the University of Edinburgh Medical School. He serves as a British spy along with Bell as they journey to St. Petersburg, to save the czar from being assasinated. Famous people also appear including Dostoyesky and Rasputin. The third diary was written in 1883 while Doyle was a young doctor starting out in his career. Again Doyle is serving as a British spy along with Bell. The diary tells how the two journey to America to stop a series of murders and what could escalate into a world war. This time characters include Herman Melville and Oscar Wilde. The diaries detail how Doyle was inspired by Dr. Bell to create Sherlock Holmes and how the two of them work as a Holmes and Watson-like team going on secret forensic missions with global impact. Robert Rotenberg, author of Stranglehold, says Think Sherlock Holmes meets Huck Finn with a bit of Treasure Island and Peter Pan thrown in for good luck. What a fun read and a great adventure. I loved all three and couldnt put them down. The book is the combined effort of Dr. John Raffensperger and Professor Richard Krevolin. School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My daughter will be going to high school next fall and I really dont know what to expect academically. I know high school is difficult for so many kids, and I want to know if there is anything we can do to prepare? Claudia V, Fort Myers Beach Claudia, High school is a time of increasing independence socially, emotionally and academically too. Learning to apply knowledge to real life situations and becoming independent thinkers are important high school tasks. The goal is for them to graduate with the skills they need to be ready for college or a career. All states have educational standards where they define the learning goals by subject and grade that every student is expected to achieve. To keep your child on track for graduation, Ive listed some of the basics of what your child is expected to learn in high school. Your childs teachers should be able to tell you their strengths and weaknesses and that will allow you to do some remedial work with your child if necessary. In high school, theres an emphasis on reading and thinking critically, and kids are expected to become critical readers and writers. They read classic works of literature like The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck as well as modern pieces like The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri. They compare, contrast and examine the different types of writing and look for common themes. They also focus more on historical texts. High school students writing focuses less on summarizing and more on providing thoughts and opinions about what theyve read and learned. They also work on editing and writing multiple drafts of reports and papers. The following activities are typically used to strengthen language and literacy in high school: Demonstrate an understanding of figurative language and how its used in writing to give a text more than one meaning Talk or write about what they read; support ideas and opinions using specific examples about the text both explicit and implied Analyze the reasoning used in historical documents Take a side or point of view on an issue; support it using reasoning, facts and other evidence Do shortand long-term research projects; present the information in writing, and orally, with graphics or as a video presentation Participate in group discussions by listening, presenting ideas and responding to other peoples thoughts In high school, kids build on the math skills they learned in middle school to gain a more in-depth understanding of algebra and geometry. They use math to solve real-world problems and start seeing how mathematical ideas connect to one another. Activities like these support high school math skills: Create and solve math problems that have two or more unknown variables Understand the difference between correlation and causation Recognize that math problems can be solved in more than one way Use mathematical functions and formulas to describe the relationship between two numbers Use probability to predict what will happen and to make sense of data Prove mathematical statements (theorems) using formulas and statements that are known to be true Remember, that all students struggle with learning from time to time, however if your child struggles continually, you may want to talk with your childs teachers. Its never too early or too late to ask for extra help. Classroom accommodations, apps and a few changes at home could make a big difference. 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.

35 ISLAND SUN APRIL 6, 2018 Artist Returning For Critique At League MeetingAward winning artist Wanda Kemper will be the guest speaker at the Sanibel Captiva Art League meeting on Thursday, April 19 at The Community House. The meeting will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. and the public is welcome. This is the last meeting of the season for the art league. Kemper will be critiquing members and visitors paintings as she did at last years April meeting. I have many reasons to accept the gracious invitation to return this year to present my program; your community is beautiful, your members are talented, gracious and friendly, and I have an opportunity to make new art friends, said Kemper. Also, I love sharing my art knowledge and experiences with others as eager as I am to create beauty. Kemper has over 40 years of experi ence as a professional artist including 30 years as owner and operator of an art studio, three years as a retouch artist for a photographic studio, 10 years as an artist and art director for a stained glass studio, former curator of Blackhawk Gallery in Danville, California, and multiple awards and honors. Members and visitors are asked to bring one painting each for a lively and informa tive critique. Ive always been a cup half full person, so my natural instinct is to focus on all the wonderful and positive aspects of a work of art. I can honestly say, theres always something I can make a positive comment about, said Kemper. After I compliment on what the artist has done well, I look for areas that, if it were my art, I would make these adjustments. Kemper said, Sanibel is as interesting and charming a community as you will find anywhere in the country. It has natural as well as man-made beauty that is awe-inspiring to artists and anyone that appreciates beauty. Sanibel is worth what traffic delays may be encountered. All Sanibel Captiva Art League meet ings are free and open to the public. For mor e information, visit www.sancapart. com. The Community House is located at 2173 Periwinkle Way. Wanda Kemper photo provided Final Stories For Grownups Program FridayDr. Sidney B. Simon will be the final storyteller this season at First Friday Stories for Grownups at The Community House on Friday, April 6 from 2 to 3 p.m. Dr. Simon was the winner of the Angels of the Arts Award as the Lee County Literary Artist of the Year in 2011. In a review of an earlier Simon program, a reporter wrote: Whether the stories were long, or short, each one elicited laughs and familiar feelings due to Simons magic as a storyteller. The effortless way in which he wove tales from his own life with stories that have endeared themselves to him along the way had the audience amused and awed. Simon tells stories for the first half hour, and then he draws out stories from those present, usually triggered by one of his stories. You dont have to tell a story, but if one occurs to you, you might get the chance to share it. The Community House is located at 2173 Periwinkle Way. For more information, call 472-2483.

37 ISLAND SUN APRIL 6, 2018 Lions Club Arts And Crafts Fair WinnersThe Sanibel Captiva Lions Club announces the winning artists of the 35th Annual Arts & Crafts Fair Works were judged by three artists from the Sanibel Captiva Art League, who looked for original creations in three categories Two-Dimensional Art, ThreeDimensional Art and Creative Crafts. Linda Huppert was named Best in Show and took first place in the Creative Crafts category. We congratulate Linda on her wins, said Lion Bill Sartoris. These talented artists make the fair a place to find quality, one-of-a-kind items and we appreciate all of them for taking part. The Creative Crafts category was rounded out by Gisela Damandl in second place, and Arlyne and Richard Julao in third place. Geoff Coe earned first place in Two-Dimensional Art with AJ and Jack Ferrel taking second place and Anne Schroeder in third. First place in Three-Dimensional Art went to Maureen Compagnoni with Walter Harper earning second and Leo and Karin Villaroman in third. Works are judged by four photos submitted by the artists with their ap plication and a visit from the judges on the first day of the fair Work must be original, made with quality and appear to be done by the artist or artists. It also must be handmade, which primarily applies to jewelry and creative crafts. The idea is to identify items that are truly creations of the artist and not a mass produced item or simply a re-seller of merchandise, explained Sartoris. The Lions Arts & Crafts Fair is the clubs biggest fundraiser of the year and benefits various Sanibel charities, vision and hearing based charities and local scholarships. It features more than 100 artists on the grounds of The Community House plus a selection of raffle and silent auction items inside. Royal Shell donated two bicycles with baskets to the raffle and, this year, the silent auction featured artwork by Sanibel artists Myra Roberts, Peter Zell and from the estate of Gordon Coughlin, said Lion John Ahlin. Many local businesses generously donate to make a great auction and raffle. Silent auction donors included: Sanybels Finest, Lily & Co. Jewelers, Spatini, The Pecking Order, Cips Place, Traders 2, The Sandbar, Eileen Fisher, Sanibel Wellness, Bleu Rendezvous, The Great White Grill, Traders, Forever Green Ace Hardware, Jerrys Foods, Crackerbox, and Beachview Tennis Club. This years fair was a tremendous success, said Lion Tom Nachazel, club president. It takes one year of planning and more than 50 Lion volunteers to produce the fair each year. We couldnt do it without the support of residents, businesses, City of Sanibel and Sanibel Police Department, said Nachazel. The Sanibel Captiva Lions have dinner meetings on the first and third Wednesday of each month at The Community House. Visiting Lions are welcome. Anyone interested in joining can contact member ship chairman Lion Steve Schulz at stevenschulz@comcast.net or 233-6261.

ISLAND SUN APRIL 6, 201838 rfnf nrtbf frf nf frr nfnfr r BIG ARTS Monday Night Film SeriesJulietaby Di SaggauThe BIG ARTS Monday Night Movie for April 9 is Julieta, a Spanish drama from Pedro Almodovar that focuses on maternal love. Julieta lives in Madrid with her daughter Antia They both suffer silently after the loss of Antias father and Julietas husband. But sometimes grief divides people rather than bring them closer together. When she turns 18, Antia without saying anything, after going on a religious retreat in the mountains abandons her mother. Julieta looks for her everywhere and discovers how little she knows of her daughter. The film is based on three stories by Alice Munro. Julieta is about a mothers struggle to survive uncertainty and also about guilt complexes and trying to understand what leads anyone to abandon the people they love. How can someone erase a loved one from their lives as if they had never meant anything, as if they had never existed? Julieta has hired private detectives to find Antia, to no avail. Julieta eventually runs into an old friend of her daughter and discovers Antia is still in Madrid. It is then we discover how many years it has been since Antia disappeared. Julieta rents an apartment in Madrid and writes letters to her absent daughter where she likens maternal love to an addiction. The second half of her story follows the familiar, agonizing stages of recovery, relapse and partial redemption. From the red curtain opening to the final scene, in which a ladybug-bright car navigates a twisting mountain road, the use of color is a dead giveaway that its an Almodovar film. Julieta runs 96 minutes and the moderator for the evening is Alan Ruben. Admission to BIG ARTS Monday Night Film Series is $10 and all screenings begin at 7 p.m. in Schein Performance Hall. Each film is followed by a complimentary reception and discussion. BIG ARTS is located at 900 Dunlop Road.

So when the house belonging to Jenni Baer Terrill and her husband, Tom, turned 100 earlier this year, they wanted to celebrate its accomplishment. On a sunny evening in late March, they hosted a gathering of friends with connections to the house and family for a house tour and catered reception in the backyard. Their neighbor, Lee Childers, a director of the Captiva Island Historical Society (CIHS), initiated support from the organization for the event.

During the three-hour event, a fund draiser for the Shipley Cardiothoracic Center at HealthPark Medical Center in Fort Myers, the trio shared stories of their good and not so good times on the worlds biggest stages. The con versation was moderated by Dr. Brian Hummel, FACS, a cardiothoracic sur geon at the groundbreaking medical center. Following an hour-long cocktail reception, the panel discussion dubbed Cause An Effect began with Dr. Hummel asking Burns, Goss and White about the current state of U.S.-Cuba relations. Goss shared that the early 60s Cuban Missle Crisis was the clos est weve come to nuclear war in my lifetime. He also joked that rumors of Cuban-made rum actually distilled in Puerto Rico are far-fetched.

The Terrills and Jennis late parents, Nan and Joe Baer, had also collected old photographs, a plat documenting a 1916 survey of the Lane Subdivision, and other historical memorabilia on display in the house. The celebration honored the house as well as the fond memories of the Baers, which were shared by many of the guests. The so-called Island House, built by FA Lane in 1918, was later owned by Pastor Rowell. The Baers bought it in 1978, and made modest renovations. The Terrills have added their own changes: Soft tropical colors enliven the decor. They opened the interior to much more light, while completely respecting the antique bones of the historic structure. Over the years the family has rented the second floor suite to well-known island residents including Paul McCarthy, owner of McCarthys Marina; Doris Schoonmaker, a painter from Booth Bay Harbor, Maine; Jay Halvorson, Captiva Fire Chief and his wife, Karen; Sean Kilgore, a Captiva fireman and his wife, Beth; and Naomi Pastor, librarian at the Captiva Memorial Library. The plaque in the yard will acknowledge the rich history of this unique landmark on Captiva. Tom Libonate, president of CIHS board of directors, presenting the commemorative plaque to the Terrills Jenni and Tom Terrill shared the history of the 100-year-old house photos provided From page 1BHistorical Society

ISLAND SUN APRIL 6, 20184B From page 1BFundraiserhot issue that 60 Minutes went down there (Cuba) to do a story on it, said Goss. White, bestselling author of the Doc Ford and Hannah Smith series of novels, also discussed the Mariel boatlift, which took place back in 1980. He talked about providing a vessel for groups of Cuban refugees seeking asylum in the United States. The Cubans are really good people, he said. They deserve a lot better. The next subject up for discussion was the camaraderie amongst all three with U.S. presidents over the years. The president is a terribly busy person, so I never wanted to take up a lot of his time, said Goss, the former CIA director and U.S. congressman. I have never felt any elected president hasnt deserved to be respected. Its a horribly difficult job. White talked about his friendship with President Jimmy Carter and his son, Jeff. We went fly-fishing in Argentina, he said. And Ill always remember this the president was always the first one out and the last one in. I even tried to wait him out, but I couldve been there until midnight and hed still be out fishing. The celebrity group also discussed ongoing problems and possible solutions to Floridas polluted water crisis, gender equality in the workplace, the benefits and drawbacks of being in the spotlight and past vs. current threats to the United States. Goss offered a concise list of five current threats to our nation, including modern terrorism, nuclear proliferation, the re-emergence of Chinese and Russian macro-aggressors, cyber-security and living in what he calls The Post-Truth Era. I grew up believing that when you lose the truth, you lose trust, Goss said. We live in fun times, but its also very scary, added Dr. Hummel. Burns, who began working at NBC-2 in 1994 as a reporter, worked her way up to primary anchor two years later. Her award-winning career includes two Regional Edward R. Murrow Awards and several awards from the Florida Press Association. Reacting to a question about gender equality in the workplace, Burns stated that she is teaching her own daughter that finding a successful career relied upon two key ingredients: education and expectations. Worldwide, I still think weve got a long way to go, said Burns. But I think were moving in the right direction. Every one of us whether you are an author or accountant, a government official or a grade school teacher deals with the stresses of performance in their workplace and their life, said Dr. Hummel. I just thought it would be great to sit down with this panel, all have seen and done so much in their days and have been wildly success ful, to talk about when the pressures got the best of them and they didnt per form at the top of their game. To conclude the discussion, the panel ists were each asked what its like living in the public eye. Bur ns said that in her job, she tries to give people all of the facts so that they can draw their own conclusions, and that she prefers to stay off social media, since many posts are subject to being misinterpreted by readers. I live here, have raised our family here I love the island, said Goss, who added that he wished more people would use their celebrity status to evoke positive change. Its a simple, quiet life. I dont have to have three people check out the grocery store whenever I go shopping. White, who more than the other two panelists appears in the spotlight during public appearances and book signings, reflected upon choosing to live on Sanibel. It has been my conviction that we dont choose to live on these islands they choose us.

Senate Bill For First Responders CommemoratedLocal first responders joined Fort Myers Fire Chief John Caufield, Florida Chief Financial Officer/ State Fire Marshall Jimmy Patronis and Southwest Florida elected officials at Fort Myers Fire Department Fire Station 1 earlier this week to commemorate the signing of Senate Bill 376, which allows first responders suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to access mental health benefits available through the Florida workers compensation system. In addition, Sanibel Island firefighter Rob Popkin and City of Fort Myers police officer Steve Gruber shared their firsthand accounts of PTSD and the importance of having access to mental health providers. Both emphasized how finding the right provider and getting appropriate treatment helped them navigate this potentially devastating disease. We commend Governor Scott and the Florida Legislature for passing this significant new law, said Chief Caufield. Many first responders struggle with after effects of their job and dont realize the emotional toll can accumulate over time. Having access to the right healthcare professionals is critical for the well-being of not only the affected person, but to their families, friends and coworkers, and in certain cases it can save a life.

ISLAND SUN APRIL 6, 201810B 2 Years Experience Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellA somewhat simple, scientific approach to seemingly complicated problems can turn out to be the best solutions overall. This is never more evident than in nature. Sanibel-Captiva Rotarys guest speaker on March 23 was Dana Dettmar, environmental specialist for the City of Sanibel, who spoke to us about the citys Floating Treatment Wetlands project at Pond Apple Park, SCCFs Bailey Homestead Preserve Phase 1. According to Virginia State University, Floating Treatment Wetlands (FTWs) islands are manmade ecosystems that mimic natural wetlands. FTWs are created using floating rafts that support plants grown hydroponically. The rafts float on a wet pond water surface and can be used to improve water quality by filtering, consuming, or breaking down pollutants (e.g., nutrients, sediment, and metals) from the water. FTWs may represent a relatively low cost and sustainable engineered best management practice (BMP) for reducing pollution. Dettmar described a FTW as basically a floating mat (much like a childs interlocking foam play mat) laced with pre-cut holes which are planted with a variety of hydroponic plants and placed in a polluted body of water. As the plants grow, they take up unwanted excess nutrients via the root system and store them in plant tissues. These plants compete with the algae for nutrients and diminish algae blooms. The plants are usually only allowed to grow for a year before harvesting takes place. This is to prevent the decaying of plant material and the re-polluting of the water. Another reason is that younger plants draw the most excess nutrients. After the plants are harvested, the sustainable practice of planting new plants takes place. Repeating this process provides a cycle of optimal nutrient removal from the water, which has proven to be successful in restoring clean water. From Beemats, Inc.: Positive outcomes are also harvested from the FTWs. They create and enhance wildlife habitat; plants above the surface provides habitat for wading birds, turtles and alligators while biomass below the water provides a nursery for juvenile fishes. Dettmar was appointed an environmental specialist for the City of Sanibel in 2015 and soon after took on the Floating Treatment Wetlands project at Pond Apple Park Phase 1, funded through a grant acquired by Sanibels Director of Natural Resources James Evans. She was already familiar with this type of natural water filtering system and eutrophication because she had written her college thesis on the topic. FTWs are proving to be a natural and an inexpensive corrective action for restoring clean water and returning plant and aquatic life to the ponds at Pond Apple Park. There are other privately owned and maintained FTWs on island and off, cleaning up and maintaining clean water in ponds, lakes and along the shorelines. Research and use both by the city and private entities with FTWs is outstandingly positive toward achieving the goals of cleaning up polluted water. FTW islands make sense. An affordable, relatively natural solution to a big problem, the cost and maintenance is minimal. In this case, a simple solution seems like an extraordinarily good solution. The plants are harvested periodically from the FTWs, further reducing the nutrients from the water body. Some plants grown on FTWs have the ability to release chemicals into the water that deter algal competitors. Furthermore, the submerged portions of FTWs provide substrate for the growth of beneficial, nutrient reducing microbes. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets Friday mornings at 7 a.m. at The Dunes Golf & Tennis Club. Guests are welcome. Dana Dettmar photo provided Commissioner To Address RepublicansBrian Hamman, District 4 commissioner of Lee County, will be the next speaker in the Sanibel-Captiva Republican Caucus 2018 Speakers Program. The meeting will be held at Sanibel Community Church, located at 1740 Periwinkle Way, in Fellowship Hall just off the front courtyard. Hamman will speak on Saturday, April 14 at 10 a.m. Refreshments will be served and the public is welcome. Commissioner Hamman is running for re-election this year, and all Lee County voters are eligible to vote in the election. He was originally appointed to the board of commissioners by Governor Rick Scott, and was voted in for a full term in 2014. After being elected, he was unanimously chosen by his fellow commissioners to serve as chairman. The five commissioners are the legislative and governing body over Lee County. A native of Lee County, Hamman earned an sssociates degree from Florida SouthWestern State College (formerly Edison State College) and a bachelors degree in communications from Florida Gulf Coast University. He spent 10 years as a television news journalist, working up to news anchor on the nightly news. He was also a financial advisor for Edward Jones and a market development manager for CenturyLink. He and his family reside in Cape Coral, where he serves on the United Way board of directors and volunteers at his church. Brian Hamman photo provided

ISLAND SUN APRIL 6, 201812B Doug WilsonIsland Resident, Licensed & Insured239-292-3314 General Repairs Power WashingTHE SANIBEL HANDYMANNO JOB TOO SMALL HOME REPAIRS SPECIALIST! Retired Navy Captain Shares Poignant StoriesRetired U.S. Navy Captain Nori Ann Reed had a great love for being at sea and for her ship, the USS Detroit. Reed was the first woman to command three Navy ships and among the first assigned aboard a ship. She shared her poignant story at a recent Sanibel-Captiva Lions Club dinner meeting. Reed looked back on her beloved ship, once named the worst of the fleet, and the 9-11 attacks. It began as a beautiful day, when the weather was summer-like but with a fall crispness in the air, said Reed, who was commanding officer of the USS Detroit at the time and in home port in New Jersey. She could see the World Trade Centers twin towers and Statue of Liberty from the ship. She was a big ship at 800 feet long and very, very heavy, Reed said of the Detroit. I carried ammo, food, fuel and any supplies needed on other ships. If you needed strawberries, I was your girl. If you needed an engine, I had that, too. The USS Detroit was known as a cantankerous ship, taking a long four days before waking up and breaking down at inopportune times. However, on that fateful day, Reed with half a crew was able to get the Detroit under way in just a matter of hours. I saw young men and women step up and prove themselves over and over, said Reed. I couldnt be more proud of them. The now-decommissioned Detroit went from worst to first that day. Before she could be disassembled, a tiny hurricane blew by and she hit another ship. She did not go quietly, quipped Reed. In her 30 years of service in the Navy, Reed also operated personnel ships and aircraft over 10 countries and 2.5 million square miles of water during Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. Reed, who moved to Sanibel as a teenager, returned to the island and volunteers for multiple organizations. She thanked the Lions for their service during the 10K Race 4 FISH, of which she is the volunteer coordinator. The Sanibel-Captiva Lions Clubs next guest speaker, Lt. Grace Towler of the Sanibel Police Department, will speak about personal safety on Wednesday, April 18 at The Community House. Visiting Lions are welcome to attend.

Nori Ann Reed photo provided Bringing The Outdoors In Part I of 3Designing Your Outdoor Spaceby Trinette NelsonBefore you fill your outdoor space, take some time to look at how the space is laid out and how you will use the space. Here are some points to consider: Do you need overhead coverage for shade or the elements (awning, umbrella)? What type of flooring will you use (concrete, wood, resin, stone, pavers)? Do you want walls (for retaining, decoration, holding plants, seating)? What size and shape should your patio space be (circular, rectangular, multi-level)? Do you need spaces for different functions (eating, cooking, seating)? What type of furniture should you consider? What special features might you incorporate (kitchen, fire pit, fountain, hot tub, waterfall)? Are there any deed restrictions for my housing development, and do I need building permits? Once you have answered all these questions or at least have an idea, you need to commit to an approach: doing it yourself or hiring a professional and, of course, you must consider all the elements of your project. A professional can help you if you need answers to your questions. Some professionals you may want to seek out depending on the scope of your project area are a decorator, landscaper, general contractor or painter.

SERVING SANIBEL, CAPTIVA & FORT MYERS FOR 40 YEARS!FREE ESTIMATES!#CPC1458912 #SI-12240 Veteran Owned & OperatedCALL 239-472-4505IslandCondo@comcast.net www.icmpools.com Monday-Friday 7am-4pm 24 Hour Emergency Service AvailableDEPENDABLE, FAST & RELIABLE Zonta And CHR Join Forces For Open House submitted by Sue DenhamAs a bonus for those who attended Zontas 17th annual Peek at the Unique home tour, held on March 10, the Zonta Club of Sanibel-Captiva partnered with Community Housing & Resources (CHR) and invited Peekers to stop by the CHR complex at Casa Mariposa, either before or after their organized tour, to peek at two units, one occupied and the other recently vacated, now freshly decorated and awaiting a new tenant. An estimated 75 Peekers took advan tage, and CHR Executive Director Melissa Rice expr essed her gratitude by saying, We were so pleased to be able to show Peek guests what CHR can offer. Many Peekers were unaware that the residents of Sanibel had the foresight, in 1979, to create an affordable housing program that still exists today. Over the years, we have grown from a single unit to over 88 right here on our island. On Peek day, Rice maintained an information table at Sanibel Community Church Peek HQ with help from CHR board members Les Boyle and Richard Johnson, who also served tasty treats to the Peekers. One Casa Mariposa visitor was Mike Cohn, grandson of Peek house sponsor Sandi Hutchings (Gulf Breeze Cottages). I have lived on Sanibel for years, knew about CHR but had not seen Casa Mariposa, said Cohn, who is employed by John Grey Painting, another Peek sponsor. I am so glad there are these great places where people who have served the Sanibel community can live. Casa Mariposa is a deed-restricted CHR complex where residents must be senior citizens. The Peek has always been about how people live on Sanibel and Captiva, said Peek co-chair Virginia Jones. We have featured all types of homes, from brand-new (Waterside, this year) to as old as it gets (the Woodring Homestead in 2013), and from tiny (in 2008, Cannonball, the architectural gem on West Gulf Drive) to huge (in 2005, Sawgrass, the largest in 17 years of the tour). One historic home shown in 2011 Buzzards Roost was a cottage moved from Captiva in three separate pieces. Jones said Zonta was pleased to offer this peek at a Sanibel treasure hous ing managed by a wonderful nonprofit supported by service or ganizations such as Zonta and others, and by many businesses and individuals. Since 2002, A Peek at the Unique has raised vital funds to support programs that empower women and girls, and CHR has received a Zonta grant for the past several years, providing emer gency assistance for female CHR residents and support for educational goals. CHR has been an integral part of the Sanibel community for nearly 40 years, Jones added. It was the first of its kind in Florida, even before Miami. The apart ments and homes are distributed throughout the community and are exceptionally well-maintained. People ar e always amazed to find on the island rental units and limited-equity ownership homes, offering affordable living space for teachers, retail workers, law enforcement, restaurant servers, and many others who provide vital services on Sanibel.

Yoga Nidra creates a fertile place to plant seeds for transformation. When you practice, you take time to set an intention. An intention is a positive affirmation that you repeat to yourself. You will find the middle ground between the polarities that are inherent in human nature through words and image symbols and total body relaxation. There are no requirements. You will be relaxed and renewed. The seeds of your intentions will change your conscious awareness, which will lead to a more joyful life. This is a no stress workshop.

ISLAND SUN APRIL 6, 201818B For the past 13 years, Ive participated in Strategic Coach, an international entrepreneurial coaching program. I fly to Chicago or Toronto quarterly to meet with my coach, Dan Sullivan, in a class consisting of about 50 other business leaders, professionals and entrepreneurs, mostly from the United States, but also from around the world. Most of the participants in my group established and built multi-million dollar businesses employing anywhere from a few dozen to several thousand employees. My estate planning legal practice is a spit in the ocean compared to what many of my classmates run. I find it invaluable to be in a room of wise, sound businessmen and women, most of whom also support a variety of philanthropic causes. They give me fantastic ideas on how to streamline work, upgrade client service and market my law practice through valuable client education using todays technology. But heres my anecdotal observation: roughly one-third of the participants are either immigrants themselves or first generation children of immigrants to the United States. One out of every three! These are individuals who left their homeland, some not knowing how to speak English, having little or no financial resources to make a go of it in our country. Many attained degrees at our fine colleges and universities while some did not, but all of them built something quite substantial. The programs annual tuition is $25,000, so we dont have charlatans among us. These people are the real deal. Before joining Strategic Coach, I would never have guessed that so many created so much in such a short period of time. They are men and women, white, black, brown and every shade in between. Ive met a Muslim from Asia looking for a bigger future in America, despite knowing he would likely face discrimination here. Another in my class fled Macedonia with his family when war broke out in the 1990s. A Christian Iranian fled as a child with his family when the Ayatollah came into power in 1979. Several Indian nationals have established technology centers here and in their homeland. They are all multi-millionaires who run successful organizations. Its truly amazing what these individuals have accomplished in such a short period of time. And besides, they are nice, quality people that are interesting to talk to. They love our country and the opportunity it provides. And they give back. Theyve established centers to help refugees stricken by war around the world. Theyve created foundations to fight dreaded diseases and to feed the homeless. One I know has a program to hire wounded American veterans suffering from PTSD. I therefore dont understand the news reports that would have one believe our country has become a conglomeration of xenophobes. Certainly not every immigrant constructs million dollar enterprises, but you also notice hard-working immigrants in restaurant kitchens, hotels, landscaping companies, manufacturing firms and a host of other jobs that require back-breaking hours. Just about every one of us traces our ancestry back to an immigrant. My great-grandparents landed on Ellis Island in the early 1900s to escape European pogroms. They worked in sweat shops in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, which at the time was the most densely populated place on earth. Later, they built clothing manufacturing firms and general retail stores. My ancestors would beam with pride if they could witness what their progeny have achieved these many years later. I dont know why our country cant readily admit, as a full-fledged citizen, anyone who earns a college level diploma here. Instead, these individuals must endure a grueling application process. Do we really want the brainpower that our colleges and universities train creating businesses, hiring workers and paying taxes somewhere else especially when they would prefer to reside here? Yes, we certainly have to be concerned about and screen for those who have destructive intent. Many of our nations recent terrorist incidents were homegrown, however. Almost all of those entering our country work an honest job to make it here like the rest of us. The brand of our country, if you will, is built on immigration. Ive been fortunate to witness firsthand the significant contributions recent immigrants have made. I hope, as a country, we promote a liberal immigration policy to attract the best, brightest and most ambitious. Our future depends on it. 2018 Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at www.sbshlaw.com.

Lee County officials accepted the 2018 National Hurricane Conference (NHC) Outstanding Achievement Award on Wednesday at the conference at the Hilton Orlando Hotel. The award recognizes the county for serving as a model for other organizations in its handling of hurricane-related activities. NHC officials recognized Lee Countys achievement in hurricane-related preparedness in past years as well as 2017, including legislation, public awareness programs, financing mechanisms, sheltering plans, engineering research, warning notification systems and prediction techniques. The key word for this award is innovation. Were looking for individuals or organizations who are doing things in a new or better way and who are worthy of emulation by others around the country. The award is not for someone who is simply doing his or her job well, an NHC official said in a statement. Accepting the award on behalf of the county was Emergency Management Director Lee Mayfield, Public Safety Director Ben Abes and Assistant County Manager Christine Brady. It takes the whole community to respond and recover effectively, Mayfield said. No one entity can do it all. Public and private sectors, nonprofits and, most importantly, the individual citizen and family. Irma was unprecedented in its size and threat, and it was not your typical hurricane. Under the direction of the Lee Board of County Commissioners, the Department of Public Safety/Emergency Operations Center (EOC), in coordination with municipalities and partner agencies, coordinated the response to Irma one of the largest hurricanes in Southwest Floridas history. Irma hit Lee County on September 10, 2017. Earlier this month, Mayfield and the county received state recognition for Irmarelated efforts. The Florida Emergency Preparedness Association invited Mayfield to Tallahassee and presented him with the Chad Reed Emergency Manager of the Year Award, which is awarded to those who show excellence in their profession. During Irma, more than 100 individuals worked in the EOC, providing support to responders in the field and determining protective actions, including evacuationscontinued on page 20B

All Masters Are Exciting, But This Years Is Anticipated More Than Mostby Ed FrankAsk nearly any sports fan and they will tell you The Masters is atop or near the top of any list. You can be certain that the world of sports will be focused this weekend upon historic Augusta National Golf Club for what is anticipated as the most exciting Masters since the tournament began in 1934. As play began today, Thursday, there are fascinating story lines for the worlds greatest golfers vying for the winners green jacket. Heading the list is the return and resurgence of Tiger Woods. He remains arguably the most popular golfer despite his off-the-course travails and undergoing spinal fusion surgery less than a year ago. In his last three tournaments, he finished 12th at the Honda Classic, a tie for second at the Valspar Championship and a tie for fifth at Bay Hill. He teed off today at 10-1 odds to win his first major tournament since 2008. His last Masters title came in 2005. These 10-1 odds are the same for Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas. Defending champion Sergio Garcia was around 25-1. And dont count out Phil Mickelson who won this year in Mexico, his first PGA championship in five years. The favorites this weekend also include two-time Masters Champion Bubba Watson, twice a tournament winner this year, and Jason Day, who won in 2018 at Torrey Pines. Broadcaster Jim Nantz, who will call his 33d consecutive Masters for CBS, said last week, This is probably the most anticipated Masters any of us have seen in our lifetime. If he (Woods) wins, it would be one of the epic moments in the history of the sport. Perhaps you recall when Jack Nicklaus won the 1986 Masters as the age of 46 the oldest Masters winner and the second oldest winner of any major championship. Julius Boros holds that distinction with his 1968 PGA Championship at 48. Woods is 42, Michelson is 47 and Ian Poulter, who won the last spot in this weekends Master with last weekends playoff victory at the Houston Open, is 42. Its an age-old clich, but the 2018 Masters should be one for the ages. Miracle 2018 Season Starts Tonight The 2018 edition of the Fort Myers Miracle baseball season begins tonight, Thursday, when the Miracle hosts Charlotte at 7 p.m. in Hammond Stadium. The same two teams play here again tomorrow, Friday, at 7 p.m. The Miracle, the Advanced A Minor League team of the Minnesota Twins, will start its 26th consecutive year here. The team has been affiliated with the Twins organization all 26 years. Fort Myers will be managed this year by Ramon Borrego, his first year as manager. The 25-man opening night roster for the Miracle includes 13 players whom spent part of last season here. Right-handed pitchers Brady Anderson and Cody Stashak headline the returning players. They led the Miracle in innings pitched a year ago Anderson with 113 and Stashak with 83.1. Anderson played his college baseball here at Florida Gulf Coast University.

Based on the significant threat from Irma, about 300,000 people in Lee County were ordered to evacuate, prompting the largest sheltering operation the countys history about 35,000 individuals in 14 shelters. This was the largest of any of Floridas 67 counties. The county also sheltered about 3,550 pets of evacuees. There was no loss of life. After response operations came to a close, recovery from Hurricane Irma began. Long-Term Recovery efforts continue today by leveraging partnerships with agencies such as the United Way and many other human services agencies throughout Lee County. Contractors and solid waste workers have collected 1.75 million cubic yards of horticultural waste and nearly 67,000 cubic yards of construction and demolition debris. The county has undertaken an effort, in coordination with partners, to remove impediments from waterways to reduce future flooding.

This is the first United Way campaign goal to exceed $10 million and the 25th consecutive year that the goal has been met or exceeded. Campaign chairs Beth Hendry and John Clinger made the announcement that local residents and companies contributed a record amount, $10,050,133 to the campaign which is a 4 percent increase. The campaigns theme, The Power of Ten, emphasizes the power of $10 million: what it can do for United Way Partner Agencies, and the difference the agencies can make in the lives of the people they help. The announcement was made at the March 29 meeting of the United Way board of directors at United Way headquarters. At the goal announcement, Hendry, who is a board member and senior vice president of IberiaBank said, Not only has our United Way made goal, we have exceeded the $10 million. Our extraordinarily generous community has done it again. To all of you who gave, we send our heartfelt thanks. Clinger, who is a board member and senior vice president as well as senior resident director of Merril Lynch said, The goal of $10 million caused us to think about what $10 million can do for the people of our community and our 94 United Way Partner Agencies. Making the goal means our agencies will receive their full share of funding for the coming year, including agencies and programs that are relatively new to the network such as Alliance for the Arts ArtPlay for young people with autism, the Multiple Sclerosis Center, I WILL Foundation, Wellfit Girls and Valeries House. Long-standing United Way Partners like Abuse Counseling and Treatment, Childrens Advocacy Center, Community Cooperative and Bonita Springs Assistance will be able to continue their vital programs because our United Way surpassed goal.

ISLAND SUN APRIL 6, 201822B Doctor and DieticianHealthy Lifestyle And Alzheimers Disease by Ross Hauser, MD and Marion Hauser, MS, RDThe rate of Alzheimers disease is increasing in the United States, with experts expecting a tripling of the numbers by 2050. Every 66 seconds someone in America develops Alzheimers disease, and two-thirds of these people are women. Is this disease preventable? Many researchers say it is. Drug companies havent been very successful at finding a cure, but lifestyle interventions, including diet, exercise, and stress management can make a difference. Interestingly, older folks in communities who regularly exercise, have strong family and community ties, and follow diets similar to the Mediterranean diet demonstrate very low percentages of dementia. The Mediterranean diet is high in vegetables, beans, fruit, olive oil and nuts, and lower in meat and dairy. Many people think there is nothing they can do to prevent Alzheimers disease, and that they are destined to get it if their parent has it. But research actually shows that an individuals risk of developing Alzheimers increased six-fold if their spouse has it. This points to lifestyle as a major culprit. These lifestyle factors can include unhealthy food choices, lack of physical activity, smoking, high stress, lack of connectedness or community and poor sleeping patterns. Dont wait until you are older to start practicing healthy habits that may prevent Alzheimers later. You have the power to prevent and alter the course of many diseases with simple daily habits. When it comes to optimizing brain health, make it a point to eat fresh plant-based foods, obtain restorative sleep, exercise regularly, practice gratitude and stress management techniques, and try to learn something new each day. Consider starting with one change, such as making exercise a part of your daily routine. Even small, consistent changes can bring about amazing, positive changes in the brain.

As we moved through Holy Week and all the events leading up to Easter Sunday, I had several conversations with my daughters about those events, what transpired and what we can take with us in our everyday lives. I prefer to start my conversations with a question like, What was the purpose of the last supper? Or, What is Easter all about? Or, my favorite one is, What does the cross mean to you? Of course, with kids, there are varying answers to all of these questions, but I believe that if I asked the question about the cross even to adults, I would get an array of responses. What does the cross mean to you? Some people will display a cross on a mantle or over their bed. I think there is still a beautiful, but simple cross over my parents bed. Some wear a cross as a piece of jewelry, and then there are those who have cross tattoos. But, in doing so, what is the reason or the purpose for that? I happen to believe that there is a multitude of words that come to mind for many different individuals from protection, redemption, sacrifice and faith, to trust, peace, salvation, love or even freedom and glory. There is a strange contradiction when you think about it, that the cross can bring such as death to life, accusations to forgiveness, defeat to victory, sin to purity, and, of course, hate to love. What was once known as a cruel form of execution is now a symbol of something so beautiful and personal. I believe that the cross resembles a choice that we make every day to give love out freely and to receive love from others. To know deep inside that you are loved even without having to hear the words I love you. Yes, indeed, the cross is so many things; it is personal, it is prophetic, it resembles humility and also something that is final. Why is it that so many continue to carry the cross but will hold on to something from the past that is hurtful instead of just letting it go? If we keep the painful, life-changing vision in our heads that Jesus carried that cross on his back so that we dont have to bear the burdens on ours any longer, we may finally be able to move forward knowing that the debt was paid for our salvation. I encourage you to take this beautiful time of year to reflect and to open your heart to a deeper understanding of renewal and all the words that go along with it like rejuvenation, revitalization and restoration. My affirmation for you this week is: I am taking time to reflect on the cross and what it means to me and how it continues to move me forward on my journey to my most beautiful life.

SUN deaRPharmacistChronic Fatigue Syndrome And Thyroid Linkedby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Readers: There are many reasons that you might be tired and suffering with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). To be clear, CFS is not the kind of fatigue that goes away after youve rested, this is a persistent type of weakness that is inexplicable, unrelenting and disabling. CFS has been pinned on EpsteinBarr (EBV) and human herpes virus 6 (HHV-6), parasites, mycotoxins, mold, adrenal dysfunction, nutrient deficiencies and much more. But new research published in March 2018 in Frontiers of Endocrinology has uncovered a rather obvious link, one that has the potential to change your life dramatically, and in a good way. Chronic fatigue impacts about 2.5 million people in the United States who deal with it, but live in an awful state of exhaustion, brain fog, dizziness and muscle pain or weakness. Attempts to treat it with antibiotics, stimulants, sleeping pills and antidepressants have left millions of people adversely affected by the drugs and still feeling pretty dreadful, perhaps only marginally better, but certainly not cured. Im confident, especially now, that thyroid medication holds the key to getting better if you have CFS. Scientists in the Netherlands and in Spain got together and inferred that CFS could be a result of low thyroid (T3) hormone levels, independent of the thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH). To test the theory they looked at 197 people, of which 98 had been diagnosed with CFS and 99 were not. After comparing thyroid function, and biomarkers of inflammation, the research ers found that the people with CFS had dramatically lower levels of important thy roid hormones, including triiodothyronine (T3) and thyr oxine (T4) but surprisingly they had normal TSH levels. This means that your TSH could appear normal on a lab test, but your T3 could be lower due to poor activation (which means that the T4 isnt converting to T3 fast enough). This means that you would have all the symptoms of low thyroid (and it will not be detected if the doctor just looks at your TSH levels) and let me remind you, this is what most do, they just look at TSH levels and nothing more. There are many reasons for poor T3 activation, and I wrote a book on this topic called Thyroid Healthy. Its on Amazon. I also have an ebook I can share for free if you sign up for my newsletter at my website. The folks with CFS happened to produce higher amounts of reverse T3 (rT3) which sadly is like your hibernation hormone. It slows you down, it basically puts you to sleep. Its not biologically active like T3. To read more about this, visit my website and use the search box to find the article called, Measure Reverse T3 and Get Thyroid Healthy. This critical research means that people with CFS are likely suffering from an underlying thyroid problem and could benefit dramatically from simple afford able medications like Compounded T3, Cytomel or other for ms of T3 medication. The T4 drugs like Levothyroxine will not be of benefit and might exacerbate the problem due to more rT3 formation. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: Ive been going through a very difficult time with just about everything in my life and I just want the chaos to end. Where do I even begin?A: It seems as though most if not all of us go through difficult times throughout our lives. Life is difficult as M. Scott Peck writes in his book The Road Less Traveled Some things I have learned that were not in any text books I studied in school, rather through life experience, so perhaps some of what I have learned may give you some reprieve. Everything is in Divine order, even through your chaos although it may not seem like it. On your journey, while things seem chaotic, disorganized and frustrating in your mind, the first step may be clearing the clutter of your mind. Often that clutter contains anxiety and fear of what ifs in the future, things we cannot control. Give your mind space that it needs to fill it with something more positive and overall better for you. Focus on right here, right now. That really is all we have. This way, you will create space for new energies that are more conducive to your needs and desires. Its time to let go of what is not serving you any longer and clear your mind for new and optimistic experiences. Every action begins with a thought first. A wise gentleman used to tell me that the Brooklyn Bridge was thought, focused on, then created. What we focus on does expand, so focus on your own glass as half full or half empty. Surround yourself with positive (Balcony people in your balcony cheering you on rather than basement people bringing you down in their basement). Learn to purge what is no longer serving you, believe me, you will feel so free. Give precedence to what remains that will serve you. Practice keeping your mind, body and spirit free from distractions. You will be better for this.

Top 10 Real Estate SalesCourtesy of Royal Shell Real Estate 31B ISLAND SUN APRIL 6, 2018 My Stars FOR WEEK OF APRIL 9, 2018Aries (March 21 to April 19) Rumors of a change in the workplace could make you a mite uneasy about going ahead with implementing your ideas. Best advice: Ignore the talk and proceed as planned. Taurus (April 20 to May 20) Everyone has an opinion on how to handle a recent business suggestion. Thank them for their advice. Then go ahead and follow your own fine instincts. Gemini (May 21 to June 20) While home is your main focus this week, new issues in the workplace need your attention as well. Take things step by step. Pressures ease in time for weekend fun. Cancer (June 21 to July 22) Be less rigid when handling a relationship problem. You might believe youre in the right, but try to open your mind to the possibilities of facts youre currently not aware of. Leo (July 23 to August 22) Leos and Leonas run at a hectic pace throughout much of the week. But by the weekend, the Lions Dens become a purrrfect place for you Fine Felines to relax in. Virgo (August 23 to September 22) Change is favored early in the week. This should make it easier for you to reassess your plans for handling a troubling professional relationship. Good luck. Libra (September 23 to October 22) A suggestion from a colleague could give your professional project that long-needed boost. Meanwhile, someone close to you still needs your emotional support. Scorpio (October 23 to November 21) Before complying with a colleagues request, check to see that the action benefits all, not just one persons agenda. Continue firming up those travel plans. Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21) Your social life is on the upswing, and the only problem is deciding which invitations to accept. Enjoy yourself before settling down for some serious work next week. Capricorn (December 22 to January 19) With your creative aspects on high, you might want to restart your work on that novel or painting you put aside. Your efforts will bring a surge in your self-esteem. Aquarius (January 20 to February 18) While youre generous with others, be sure youre not overlooking your own needs. Take time to assess your situation and make adjustments where necessary. Pisces (February 19 to March 20) Being applauded for your achievement is great. But watch out that you dont start acting like a star. It could lose you valuable support with your next project. Born This Week: Your strong belief in justice, along with your leadership qualities, help you protect the rights of others. The unknown soul who made the following sage observation must have been a keen observer of events: A politician can appear to have his nose to the grindstone while straddling a fence and keeping both ears to the ground. Swedish chemist and engineer Alfred Nobel, famed inventor of dynamite and originator of the Nobel Prizes, could speak five languages fluently by the time he was 17 years old. Most languages change dramatically over time. If we in modern America were to try to read, say, Beowulf (which was written in Old English), only those who have spent time studying the language would be able to make out more than a word or two here and there. If youre from Iceland, however, this isnt the case; the written language there has remained virtually unchanged for more than 1,000 years. Modern Icelanders have no trouble reading sagas that were written in the 10th century. Those who study such things say that fully one-third of all your brainpower is used for vision. At some point in your life youve probably gotten your hands gooey with papier-mache, whether you were making crafts yourself or helping your kids. You may not have realized, though, that the term papier-mache means chewed-up paper in French. You might be surprised to learn that there are people who study how air quality, humidity, the hardness of the water and pollution affect peoples hair. According to these researchers, the worst American cities for your tresses are Corpus Christi, Texas; Olympia, Washington; and Pittsburgh. Jobs are like going to church: Its nice once or twice a year to sing along and eat something and all that, but unless you really believe theres something holy going on, it gets to be a drag going in every single week. -Thomas Michael Disch THOUGHT FOR THE DAY STRANGE BUT TRUE SCRAMBLERS Hortoons SUNDAYMost ly Cloudy High: 80 Low: 69 TUESDAYMost ly Sunny High: 75 Low: 68 THURSDAYSunny High: 71
