They are all useful post-tropical storm sup plies. Baby wipes may be your shower if water pr essure is low. A one-two punch includes having hydrogen peroxide on hand as well. Fix-A-Flat is useful if you are driving through an area where construction debris or roof shingles have been blown around. White vinegar works great to stop mold. Bleach residue has a type of salt that draws moisture in to the area and bleach does not penetrate porous surfaces. There are other suggestions for lowering post-hurricane blues. Come to the SCCF Nature Center on Sunday, April 22 and learn about DIY innovations that may aid in coping with issues after the storm. Red Anders has become quite inventive in keeping things more comfortable when the power goes out. Some of his projects will be on display. In addition, Anna Stork will be giving two talks about her experience with LuminAID waterproof solar lanterns which can also be used to charge cell phones. Stork has helped supply light to the Himalayans after the landslides, in African villages where a single light can help improve the welfare of mothers and newborn babies, and in Puerto Rico postHurricane Maria. Storks talks are supported through the Donald Slavic Family Foundation. Seating for Storks presentations are limited; register for her 1:30 and 3 p.m. talks using Eventbrite. Tickets are free. When attending SCCFs Earth Day celebration between 1 and 5 p.m., enter a raffle for one of 100 LuminAID lanterns, compliments of LCEC. The SCCF Nature Center is located at 3333 Sanibel-Captiva Road.

Wesley grew up the youngest of four siblings in Shelby, North Carolina. She attended St. Marys School in Raleigh and the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. She belonged to Chi Omega womens fraternity. She studied accounting and became a Certied Public Accountant in 1988. Wesley was a talent in horseback riding, swimming and diving, snow skiing and water skiing, painting and so much more.

Wesley enjoyed endless hours coaching, teaching, and cheering on her daughters in sports, choirs, art, performances and academic accomplishments. Her favorite place was Useppa Island, where the Fay Family spent countless weekends and holidays. Wesley turned every house into a home and haven through her decorating and landscaping. She lled those havens with art, color, owers, puppies, music and love. Wesley was bright, funny, quickwitted, so strong and so kind.

The tour included exploring several land and marine environ ments within the beautiful country of Costa Rica. The 12 participants wer e guided by world-renowned malacologist Jos H. Leal, PhD, museum curator, and aided by Leigh Gay, museum outreach coordinator, and local guide Erick Guzman of Holbrook Travel. The guides were very knowledge able, enthusiastic and dedicated to giving us the best possible experience thr oughout our trip, said participant Kim from Florida. Among the many memorable stops were the Marino Ballena National Park in the Uvita area and Cao Island on the southwestern-most part of the Pacific coast. The tour included a variety of experiences from learning about new mollusks to visiting hanging bridges to swimming in beautiful warm waters. Our first international Eco Tour took us on an immersive natural-history experience in one of the most remark able tropical regions of the world, said Dr Leal. In addition to seeing a wide array of wildlife in some of the more traditional terrestrial environments, such as the Monteverde Cloud Forest, we also explored some of the Pacific coast in the southern part of the country, and spent a day snorkeling at offshore Cao Island. We had a chance to see many local mollusks and have discussions and show-and-tell on the go. Its great to see the National Shell Museum expanding its educational experiences to include the rich marine ecosystems of the eastern Pacific Ocean. Due to the success of this inaugural trip, the museum is planning a return trip to Costa Rica in December of 2018. In the upcoming trip, we will be spending a couple of days in the area of the Arenal Volcano, with the remainder of the adventure dedicated to exploring the central and southern Pacific coasts of Costa Rica, said Dr. Leal. One of the super interesting angles I like to approach when discussing the tropical eastern Pacific mollusks and their shells is their relationship to well-known Southwest Florida and Caribbean counterparts. There are many species-pairs, one member of the pair from the Pacific, another from the Atlantic. These pairs originated from common ancestors that thrived prior to the rising of the Isthmus of Panama. The many opportunities for exploration and ensuing science-oriented discussions make the museum trips truly unique. Gay has just finalized the museums itinerary for the December Eco Tour and says participants can expect even more exciting learnings along the shore. Our first trip to Costa Rica was an eye-opening experience. From day one until the last night, we were immersed in culture and nature. We covered it all; shelling, snorkel ing, whale-watching, birdwatching, hiking and eating. Our hotels had br eathtaking views of volcanoes, rainforests and the vast Pacific Ocean, and I cant wait to go back!

More than 70 volunteers attended the event held at The Dunes. The village could not function without our family of volunteers, said Executive Director Emilie Alfino. They are highly skilled and informed about the islands history, and they get scores of compliments from our guests. We are very lucky to have such wonderful people involved in our village. Volunteers celebrating anniversaries were recognized, as were new volunteers. New volunteers included Mary Bondurant, Ginny Darby, Annette Hendrick, Kay McDonald, Jaye Nagle, Susan Nickson, Barbara Renneke, Jeanne Shumway, Bart Smith, Rachel Stewart, Frankie Tozzi and Keith Trowbridge. Celebrating five years of service were Mike DiCorpo, Martha Dilger, Carol Gertsen, Clivie Goodwin, Sally Kennedy, Edina Lessack, Patty Moore, Donna Oberhill, Ellen ONeill, Kathy Price and Nancy Siegel. Celebrating 10 years of service were Judy Addison, Dorothy Donaldson, Sally Duffy, Nanette Laurion, Kitty Moore and Blair Wyatt. Celebrating 15 years of service was Gayle Pence. A large committee of volunteers organized and planned the event, including chair Terry Jacob and Lois Codair, the member in charge of decorating. The historical village is currently open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. Beginning in May, the village switches to summer hours, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The village is located at 950 Dunlop Road (next to BIG ARTS). Admission is $10 for adults 18 and older; those under 18 and members are free. Docent-guided tours are available at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. at no extra charge, based upon docent availability. There is handicap access to all buildings. For more information, call 472-4648 during business hours or visit www. sanibelmuseum.org.

They prepared a complete meal of enchiladas, guacamole, salsa, homemade tortillas and Mexican wedding cookies. On May 7, they will create food from Thailand, including summer rolls, Thai chicken salad, pineapple and coconut fudge. Sixteen home chefs gathered to create a gourmet meal at the first of many couples cooking evenings at The Community House. The selection of recipes to prepare by Resident Chef Jarred Harris and visiting Chef Loretta Paganini scored an outstanding from all. The menu consisted of a get-to-knoweach other frittata appetizer with wine. After instructions and recipes, the couples each tackled one of the menu items and the results were superb. The menu included heirloom tomato, beet and micro greens (from The Community House garden) with goat cheese vinaigrette, lobster ravioli with lemon butter sauce and Wagyu teres major medallions.

Plant SmartCarolina Geraniumby Gerri ReavesCarolina geranium (Geranium carolinianum) is a low-growing native wildflower found virtually throughout Florida. It grows in sunny spots in fields, woods and disturbed area and along roadsides, sometimes in large colonies. This leafy herb, the only member of the geranium family native to the state, often volunteers in yards and is typically regarded as a weed. However, the pretty flowers and lack of required maintenance might make you reconsider not ripping it out or dousing it with herbicide. It can grow as tall as two feet, but usually reaches only about a foot. Because the inch-long tubular beaked capsule resembles a cranes head, it inspires additional common names, cranes bill and Carolina cranesbill. The word Geranium is derived for the Greek word for crane. The plant is also called wild geranium. The capsule eventually ripens, turns brown and splits to reveal small seeds, which songbirds and small mammals consume. The pale pink, white, or lavender flowers appear nearly all year long. Measuring only about half an inch across, they usually bloom at the stem ends. They have five notched petals and spine-tipped sepals below the flowers. The leaves and bracts are hairy, or pubescent, and the leaves have an overall round shape but are deeply divided into five lobes. Because the lobes are further divided into lobes with toothed edges, the leaves have a fringy appearance. This wildflower is high in tannins and is used medicinally to treat sore throats and diarrhea. Sources: Florida Wild Flowers and Roadside Plants by C. Ritchie Bell and Bryan J.

Struggling For That Snookby Capt. Matt MitchellGreat tides and great bait dont always mean great fishing. This week proved to be a struggle when fishing for snook and redfish. Even though I did catch some of each, the bite was just never on fire and every single fish we caught took work. The best action continues to be our big trout fishing that has been outstanding with lots of fish over the 20-inch mark. Tarpon fishing was beat up a little by more strong winds. Anglers who were willing to put the time in soaking cut baits continue to hook them in the southern sound. Along with tarpon, more sharks are starting to show up along with Spanish mackerel, ladyfish and jacks of spring. This week, I had the pleasure of fishing with one of my favorite groups (Diageo and ABC Liquors) during their three-night stay on Captiva. These clients have done this annual business strategy meeting and fishing tournament for the last 10 years. This year was no different with five boats booked for two days. They only want to fish for snook with the big snook each day being the winner. Day one of snook fishing was tough with big high pressure on us. We did manage to catch four slot-sized fish on the five boats. Day one, after running all over the sound to the places I had seen snook laid up all week, we had very little success by only catching a variety of other species until the last hour of the tournament. As the tide got up higher during late morning, I made the run to a favorite oyster bar looking to catch one good fish. First cast on the oyster bar with the bait in the water for less than 10 seconds, we hooked up on a nice 29-inch snook and landed it. We continued fishing the other oyster bars in the same area and managed to land a monster 24-inch trout before time ran out on us. My friend Capt. Travis won day one with a snook that measured 31.5 inches. Day two, I had a different game plan by planning to run north and sight-fish some snook on the bayside of Cayo Costa in the clear water. Idling down a favorite shoreline, I located lots of larger snook but could just not get them to eat even a live chum. After a couple more frustrating hours working down this shoreline without even a bite, I made the run back to the south to fish an island by rocky channel in the northeastern sound now that the tide was finally high enough to reach it. Idling around this mangrove island, we noticed every sand pothole had snook laid in it. Setting up way out and making long casts, we had snook blowing up on live shiners, and it looked like it was going to happen. On the second or third cast, we finally did catch our first small snook of the day, and then it just quit. Motoring around to the next deeper shoreline, I spotted about 20 oversized redfish laid up under the mangroves along with a half dozen big snook out in the deeper sand hole. After throwing baits to these snook without a bite, we did hook three big redfish and landed one 29 inches before time ran out on us. Day 2 proved tough for all the captains with the largest snook caught only measuring 26 inches. The day two winner was caught by Capt. Jason Marsh who operates my second boat. After probing Jason a little bit, he gave up the fact that after struggling all morning with snook fishing, he went back to our home marina in St. James city and caught one of our pet snook we feed everyday right in my boat slip for the win. If my morning wasnt frustrating enough to have the winning fish be one of your pets, it was worse yet because I didnt think of it first. All in all, it as a great two days spent on the water with very generous clients that have become my friends over the past 10 years. Add in some friendly competition amongst fishing guides and I cant wait until next year when I hopefully get to redeem myself. 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.

CROW Case Of The Week: Common Loon by Bob PetcherThe common loon (Gavia immer) is a long-bodied water bird whose biggest distinction from its cousins Pacific loon and redthroated loon is its head color in the summer months. From April to September, the so-called great northern diver has a black head and bill to go along with their black-and-white spotted back and white breast. Common loons are best known to be songbirds of freshwater lakes in the northern wilderness. One can usually hear them on a calm night with only the buzz of insects providing background noise. The loons eerie call can echo across the water and awaken any tranquil moment. Interestingly, the common loon is a great underwater swimmer. Its solid bones cause them to be less buoyant, unlike other birds. Its quick descent is courtesy of an ability to blow air out of its lungs and flatten its feathers to remove air within its plumage. The loons heart actually slows down to conserve oxygen. At CROW, an adult common loon was admitted after being found floating onto Bunche Beach in Fort Myers. Reports said the finder noted that the bird had signs of injury under its wing, and clinic medical officials noticed the patient had two linear wounds in the left inguinal area that were crusted over and covered in a white scabby material during the initial exam. The loon also has a small laceration on its right hock and a scab on the medial aspect. The loon came in with old looking, scabbed-over injuries. They extended into the muscle layer. When they were cleaned and dead skin removed, the underlying tissue was healthy, said Dr. Malka Spektor, CROW veterinary intern. There were two wounds at the inner thigh, one next to the other, in a line. The other wound was on the back side of the same leg, and it was the same size as the other two, in the same linear configuration. X-rays did not indicate any fractures. The loon may have suffered an attack from a predator. A possible cause is a bite wound, with each wound being a tooth mark, since they are on the upper and underside of the leg, said Dr. Spektor. It could also be wounds from rocks or shells when the loon beached itself, however we cannot be one hundred percent certain of the cause. The patient was provided pain medication and the wounds at the left inguinal area were cleaned surgically down to healthy tissue and sutured closed. The right hock was flushed and honey bandaged. The honey was used the first day as an antimicrobial dressing on the wounds while the patient was too unstable to anesthetize for full wound care, said Dr. Spektor. Once the loon stabilized, we were able to anesthetize it, and clean, debride and suture the wounds closed. After a week of care and healing at the clinic, the patient was ready to begin rehabilitation in anticipation of a release. All signs look good for a return to the wild. The injuries are looking good, and should mostly heal within a week or two, said Dr. Spektor. The loon was moved outside on Friday to be able to build up strength in the water. When the patient is moving around well, the wounds have mostly healed, and it has put on some weight, it will be time for release.

Shell Of The WeekNorthern Quahogby Jos H. Leal, PhD, BaileyMatthews National Shell Museum Science Director and CuratorThe Northern Quahog, Mercenaria mercenaria (Linnaeus, 1758), measures up to 120 mm (about five inches). Its shell is trigonal to rounded, with commarginal (concentric) ridges on the outer surface. It differs from its closest relative (and local native species), the Southern Quahog, Mercenaria campechiensis, by smaller maximum size, lack of commarginal ridges on central part of the external shell surface and, most of all, by the violetcolor tinges on the internal surface of its valves (absent in the Southern Quahog). Originally from the Eastern Seaboard of the US, the Northern Quahog has been introduced to the bays and protected waters of Southwest Florida originally via scientific experiments and the seafood aquaculture industry: the species was chosen over the native Southern Quahog because of the very short shelf life in this latter species. Both species can be found in the local areas invaded by the Northern Quahog, and hybrids are not uncommon.

Ribbon Cutting For New Bike Path Rest AreaOn Saturday, April 21 at 10:30 a.m., the Sanibel Bicycle Club (SBC) and the City of Sanibel will be conducting a brief ceremony to cut the ribbon on Sanibels newest path rest area at Casa Ybel Road and Middle Gulf Drive. This ceremony will be attended by bike club members and city officials, and is open to the public. This project was initiated by SBC after the family and friends of the late Dale Armstrong, a SBC founding member and past president, made a generous donation to SBCs Trails In Motion Fund to underwrite the project. The club partnered with the City of Sanibel, which made the land available for the facility. This project represents another example of SBC working with the city in a public/private partnership to benefit the Sanibel Shared Use Path. Parking at the location will be limited, so everyone who can is encouraged to bike or walk to the rest area. City bike racks will be placed at the location, as well as chairs and shade cover for those who need it. There will be some limited space for car parking along Peachtree Road across Casa Ybel Road.

Entitled Beach ID: Common Sanibel Beach Finds (Other Than Shells), Menschs presentation included some of the unusual looking animals and vegetation spotted on local shores, from everyday finds to rare discoveries. Seaweed, technically, is not a plant. It is an algae that conducts photosynthesis through its tissues. Locally, the most common seaweeds are graceful redweed, which quickly bleaches from red to pink to white to translucent after washing up on the beach, and pelagic sargassum which due to being filled with tiny air bladders Mensch referred to as natures bubblewrap. Other vegetation frequently seen on beaches include seagrasses (i.e. turtle grass, manatee grass) and mangrove propagules. Mensch explained that red mangrove propagules drop off the parent tree, and may float in the water for up to a year before taking root. Several varieties of egg cases includ ing whelk, fig, tulip and apple murex are often discover ed by passersby on the beach. The apple murex egg case actually looks like a giant Rice Krispies treat, Mensch explained. But if you see a Rice Krispies treat on the beach, dont eat it! Although they can be found on local beaches, coral is a relatively rare discovery. Unlike their more colorful cousins found in waters far away from Southwest Florida, local corals are usually white. Weeks will go by and I wont find any corals on the beach, said Mensch. But some days, I might find five. Another odd discovery people often see on the sand are pig parts, including hooves, nails and knuckles. They come from fishermen who bait crab traps with sectioned parts of a pig carcass; subse quently, fragmented remains are carried in with the tides and wash ashor e. They are an unusual find, but not beyond reason. Menschs presentation also included information about identifying echinoderms (sea stars), sea squirts (sandy skinned tunicates), sea pork and three species of batfish. The latter marine creature uses its pectoral fins to walk on land. Although gopher tortoises may some times be found on island beaches, they ar e solely terrestrial animals and cannot survive in the water. A keystone species that helps provide shelter for up to 350 other animals including snakes, rodents, rabbits, insects and other reptiles gopher tortoise burrows average 15 feet long and 6.5 feet deep. Lucky beachgoers may also see one of a number of varieties of sea turtles on Sanibel and Captiva. Loggerheads are the most common sea turtles to visit here, but sometimes green and Kemps ridley sea turtles can be seen onshore, typically during nesting season which runs from April 15 through October 31. If you see a sea turtle on the beach, please observe it from a respectful distance and dont use a flash or artificial lighting when photographing them. All sea turtles are protected by Florida law, with one in every 1,000 hatchlings surviving to adulthood. For an upcoming schedule of daily pre sentations and special activities, free with paid admission, visit the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum, located at 3075 Sanibel-Captiva Road.

It was being tossed in the surf when he found it a while ago. Shell Found Levi Jackson photo by A. Ziehl Family-Friendly Paddlingby Ocean Tribe PaddlersOne of the best things about paddling is that it can be enjoyed by and adapted for people of all ages. With a small amount of planning and preparation, a day of kayaking or stand up paddleboarding becomes a fun and kid-friendly family activity. Our advice is to make sure there is plenty of supervision and support from capable adults, and to start slow, easing young paddlers into the sport gradually as they hone their skills. Ideally, there should be one experienced paddler per child present on an initial family outing. Two-person kayaks or canoes are good options for providing easy instruction and assistance if you dont own them, consider renting vessels for your first trip with the kids. It is also possible for smaller, well-behaved children to sit atop a stand up paddleboard with an accompanying adult. Choose a calm, protected paddling location that you are very familiar with, and keep the route short. There will be plenty of time for longer adventures in the future. During the paddle, be enthusiastic, teach patiently and take your time. We love to stop and observe wildlife along the way, or even practice entering and exiting our vessels while enjoying a swim. Before you go, talk about the trip as a family and get excited. Also make sure that each paddler has a properly-fitting U.S. Coast Guard-approved PFD (personal flotation device) to wear. Local outfitters can often make recommendations and help you purchase properly-sized gear for kids, including paddles. Pack the usual safety gear, adding extra lines for towing and/or rescue. Prepare for the weather forecast, which in Southwest Florida often means sunscreen, hats, sunglasses and covering up with UV-protective clothing. Water and snacks are also essential. Most importantly, if your young paddlers become tired, be OK with turning around early. Over time, they will develop more stamina and will learn to understand their own strengths and limitations on the water, which is an essential skill for lifelong enjoyment of the sport. Ocean Tribe Paddlers is a club that helps the Southwest Florida paddling community better explore, enjoy and understand the ocean.

ISLAND SUN APRIL 20, 201824 Class Builds Solitary Bee Nesting Boxesby Jeff LysiakOn April 12 at the Bailey Homestead Preserve, nine people attended a SanibelCaptiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) program on bees, learning how to identify various bee species and making their own native solitary bee nesting box to take home. The program was led by SCCF Native Landscapes & Garden Center Manager Jenny Evans, SCCF Living with Wildlife Educator Dee SerageCentury and Wally Kain, construction guru from The Hammerheads. The 90-minute presentation offered the group some basics on bee identification, which plants they are attracted to and what people can do to help sustain or increase local bee populations. On a national level, pollination of our crops is something we should think about, said Serage-Century. Although we give a lot of credit to the honey bees for pollinating our crops, almost half of the pollination comes from our native solitary bees. Historically, generations have been keeping bees at the Bailey Homestead Preserve since the early part of the 20th century. Behind the main building is a structure called the Honey House, where visitors may purchase several varieties of locally harvested honey. Serage-Century led a tour of the demonstration gardens, pointing out the different species of bees including the honey bee, carpenter bee, carpenter bee mimic, green orchid bee, green sweat bee, oil bee and leafcutter bee that can be found locally. She also pointed out their everyday movements and which plants they are most attracted to. Many of Floridas solitary nesting bees raise their larvae in the hollow of branches, she explained. The females carry nectar and pollen to make a ball that will feed the larvae in each nesting chamber. She lays an egg on the pollen ball, seals each chamber with leaves, plant oils, soil or wood, then starts another chamber. Female eggs are laid first for more protection and males are laid closer to the chamber entrance Hammerhead Wally Kain, center, assists Gwenda Hiett-Clements and Jo Ellen Dickison with construction of their bee boxes photos by Jeff Lysiak Wally Kain identifying all of the materials needed to complete the project Carol Zell hammering nails into the roof of her bee box 1244 Periwinkle Way | Sanibel Island, Florida 33957 | (239) 472-5555ILCIELOSANIBEL.COM A Dynamic Culinary ExperienceIN A CASUAL,ELEGANT SETTING Enjoy a one-of-a-kind Sanibel dining experience featuring Art Deco inspired indoor dining, live piano music nightly and unparalleled service by an approachable team.

According to Fields, the kids came up with the idea by themselves, and wanted to share information about FISH with anyone who stopped by their stand. One of their first patrons, Billy Kirkland, applauded their efforts and paid for anyone stopping by who was riding a rental from Billys Bikes. This is such a fun way to build awareness about our organization, said Maggi Feiner, who had a fresh lemonade mid-morning. I am so pleased to see our young islanders giving back to our com munity to help our neighbors.

ISLAND SUN APRIL 20, 201826 The Community HouseMintby Resident Chef Jarred HarrisThe mint plant originated in the Mediterranean region. It has been found in Egyptian tombs as far back as 1,000 BC. It is used for medicinal purposes and in culinary applications. Its aroma is unique and refreshing. I grow it all over my garden because it smells nice and it repels rats and mosquitos.There are 30 varieties of mint grown around the world. The most common garden variety in America is spearmint and the second most popular variety is peppermint. The United States produces 70 percent of the worlds peppermint and spearmint. It is used in making mouthwash, and other health and beauty aids. Mint gets its name from the Greek mythical character Menthe. According to the Greek myth, Menthe was a river nymph that Hades (the god of the underworld) fell in love with. Persephone (Hades wife) found out about it and turned Menthe into a plant, so people would walk over her and crush her. Hades was unable to break the spell, so he gave Menthe an amazing aroma, so he could smell her and be near her when people walked on her. Mint contains the essential oil menthol. That is what gives mint its aroma. Mint also contains vitamins A, C, B2 and calcium, magnesium, zinc and copper. If you are a novice gardener or an experienced foodie, I encourage you to plant some mint in your garden and use it in a recipe. Here is a simple salad recipe for you to try. Mint Watermelon and Feta Salad Serves 4 Ingredients 4 oz. baby arugula 4 oz. feta cheese 4 slices of watermelon (rind removed and cut in half) Dressing cup basil (shredded) cup mint (roughly chopped) cup olive oil lemon (juiced) 2 tblsp. honey Method Arrange the arugula on a platter. Place the watermelon and feta on top of the arugula. Sprinkle the mint and basil over the salad. Place the olive oil, lemon and honey in a bowl and whisk. Pour over the salad.

This is a powerful one-woman drama starring Katie Pankow as a cocky ace Air Force fighter pilot who loves the blue. The blue sky is her home. She worships it. Shes proud of the pilot suit shes earned, saying, I never wanted to take it off. This was who I was now, who Id become through sweat and brains and guts. This is me. When she falls in love and marries Eric and becomes pregnant, she is grounded, working a desk job. The pilots nightmare, she says. After her daughter is born, she is assigned to a military facility in Las Vegas controlling the drones that are being used by the United States to wage war in the Middle East. She calls it the chair force. A metal silver chair is the only prop on stage and Pankow circles it throughout the 90-minute play displaying a multitude of emotions. She tries to look on the bright side, thinking that tracking bad guys in Afghanistan seven days a week means she will see her daughter grow up and will be able to kiss her husband good night. The threat of death has been removed. While thats somewhat true, the responsibility of making life and death choices that involve a drone strike killing the enemy and also watching American forces die,changes her. Her steady hands become sweaty, she sees the gray of the desert for hours every day and a gradual onset of post-traumatic stress disorder begins. Video displays in the background show us what she is seeing. The play, by George Brant, is a haunting portrait of a woman in the Air Force coming under pressure as she sees the human cost of war. It slowly eats away at her. Grounded is a compel ling and moving one-woman show and I hope you get a chance to see it.

ISLAND SUN APRIL 20, 201828 SUN Book ReviewThe Bricklayer Of Albany Parkby Di SaggauDoes it take a monster to find a monster? Thats the question behind The Bricklayer of Albany Park by local author Terry John Malik. The book is a psychological thriller that wont let go. Youll follow Detective Frank Vincenti, who has always had a knack for understanding the killers he hunts, as he searches through the back alleys of Chicago for the notorious Bricklayer, a serial killer who strikes at night and buries his victims under bricks. The chapters pretty much alternate between Vincenti and Anthony, the serial killer. Slowly we get to know each of these men. Anthony is amused that the press calls him The Bricklayer. He feels justified in killing all his victims. He has an apparition that haunts him and keeps him on task. Vincenti enlists the help of an old mentor, former Chicago PD detective Thomas Aquinas Foster, whose unconventional teaching methods help Vincenti in his search for the killer. Foster plays with his former students mind, which helps Vincenti get into Anthonys mind. The short chapters with alternating views result in a gripping investigation and a riveting story. Malik says that the book is not inspired by true events or people, but certain characters may resemble people in his life. He actually knew an older man named Thomas Aquinas who had many of the same habits as the one in his book. The true-crime, serial-killer aficionado will find several tidbits of interest in the book including the address of John Wane Gacy, and a lounge where some famous serial killers picked up their female victims. As to his favorite character, Malik says, Vincenti. He is a victim of his father, of Foster and ultimately of himself. TB, a federal court judge, says of the book. Mr. Maliks extensive research into mental illness, woven with details that ring of a true criminal investigation, make for a riveting story that elicits both sympathy for the killer and fears for his victims. A book that sucks the reader in and does not release its grip before the completely unexpected ending. It is a scary thrill ride. I was fascinated with how Vincentis mentor plays with his mind and also the thought process of Anthony. The Bricklayer of Albany Park is a book you will try to finish in one reading, its that good.

I really dont understand what a growth mindset is and why its important please explain. Carolyn V, Fort Myers Carolyn, Growth mindset is a term that has become quite popular lately but the concept has been around for a while. Growth mindset is a concept that refers to how we face challenges and setbacks. It was developed by Stanford University professor, Dr. Carol Dweck, one of the worlds leading researchers in the field of motivation. Dweck and her colleagues did a series of studies that found that kids who pushed through challenges held the belief that they could improve their abilities. Kids who pulled back from challenges believed their abilities were fixed. It describes how a child faces challenges and setbacks. Kids with a growth mindset believe their abilities can improve over time. By comparison, kids with a fixed mindset think their abilities are a set trait that cant change, no matter how hard they try. For example, think about a child who struggles with math and has gotten low grades on her tests and assignments. If shes convinced shes just bad at math, and that no amount of work will change that, shes showing a fixed mindset and is likely to stop trying. If she says she has trouble with math but continues to try to improve at it, that shows a growth mindset. Parents sometimes think it helps to praise their childs talents and intellectual ability. However according to the growth mindset theory, if you say to your child, Youre really good at math, it promotes a fixed mindset. Youre really saying that the ability to do math is just something your child has. Weve been told that we should be praising the childs effort. Again, this type of praise is not enough to promote a growth mindset because kids can try hard but not succeed because they arent using strategies that work. Dr. Dwerk says whats most important is to praise the way they approached the challenge, not how hard they tried or how well they did. For instance, you might praise your child for the way she solved a math problem or how she organized her homework to get it all done. Dr. Dwerk calls this process praise. She says that its the most helpful type of praise for promoting a growth mindset. It puts the emphasis on the steps your child took to get to the end result. By focusing on process, you and your childs teachers can show how getting stuck, asking for help and trying new strategies are important, too. A big part of having a growth mindset is not to allow failing at something stop you from working to improve. Its important for your child to know that setbacks can provide a way forward. Talk about what your child learned from the experience. For instance, you might say, How would you study differently next time? Would it help to talk to your teacher? Would a study guide be useful? Tell your child its OK to speak up when something isnt working. Encourage her to selfadvocate and ask for help from the people around her. Developing growth mindset is an ongoing process. Getting and taking feedback from others, learning from mistakes and finding innovative ways to approach tasks isnt easy. But its a valuable way to help your child learn that her talents can be developed.

Her topic was Shelling in the Kitchen. Cooking aficionados Betsy Riley, Suzanne Bush, and Pat and John Guyette attended the February program, then cooked from Betsys stirring stories recipes. The group tried their hand at lemon pectin cake, stuffed shells and pasta salad. Its a thrill to help enrich peoples lives just by sharing something I love, Eidem said. Sanibel Public Library offers cooking kits for patrons to check out and take home. Called Cooking in the Bag, the idea is similar to checking out books, music or movies, only in this case, its cookware. Patrons can take home a paella or crpe pan, dip and chip tray, empanada press, sushi making kit, and other items. Each kit has a coordinating cookbook and instructions. The Cooking in the Bag project was funded in 2014 as a pilot program through the Sanibel Public Library Foundation. Access to a public library not only promotes reading but also facilitates lifelong learning, and studies have shown it increases a communitys quality of life, said Sanibel Public Library Executive Director Margaret Mohundro. Libraries are no longer just a place to store books, but offer a variety of services. As Sanibel Public Librarys Your Library Reimagined remodel project continues, the facility is open for normal operating hours. Popular services like computers, printers, high speed Wi-Fi, Children and Teen Space, and reference services are available. The other half of the library is being renovated, expected to reopen in early fall 2018. Back by popular demand, hundreds of beer tap handles are on display during April at the library. The tappers are part of a collection owned by Rick Goodrich of Sanibel. Family Storytime for preschoolers will be held on Wednesdays at 10 a.m., repeated at 1 p.m. The After-School Crew for children in kindergarten to third grades will meet at 3 p.m. on Thursdays.

ISLAND SUN APRIL 20, 201830 BIG ARTS Monday Night Film Series A Summers Taleby Di SaggauThe BIG ARTS Monday Night Movie for April 23 is A Summers Tale, a drama/romance film from France. Recent college graduate Gaspard arrives at a Brittany beach town to relax for a few weeks. He waits for Lena, a girl he has been dating casually and when she does not arrive, he strikes up a friendship with waitress Margot. Through her, Gaspard also meets Solene, a free spirit who is open to a physical relationship if he will be faithful. As Gaspard spends time with each, his feelings become further conflicted. A Summers Tale was made in 1996 as part of Eric Rohmers Tales of the Four Seasons. Its considered the best of the four films but was not released commercially in the United States until later. The characters are young and in the mood for love one day and in the opposite mood the next. By the time Lena arrivers, Gaspard realizes that he has promised to take all three different potential lovers on the same island trip. A Summers Tale is comic, humane and a bit complicated. Gaspard is led to the edge of panic, at least for awhile. The characters ramble about their feelings of loneliness, rejection and fulfillment, but its the audiences own experience that fills in the gaps of introspection and judgment. A Summers Tale attests to Rohmers status as a master of perspective and characterization and his keen eye for sun-drenched, luscious landscapes and all the fineries of human interaction that they awaken. The film runs 113 minutes. The moderators for the evening are Wendy McMullen-Humphrey and Bruce Merrill. 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.

Call Madeline for Reservations From page 1Seahorse Festivalput us behind, she said. Weve been busy planning this years Seahorse Festival to be something bigger, a bit different than years before, and hopefully a lot more fun. The biggest change for this years festival is the venue. In years past, the Seahorse Festival has been staged on school grounds. Being at the school, the festival sort of lacked the exposure it needs to draw bigger crowds, said Paulus. Moving it to Sanibel Community Park is going to increase our visibility. Organizers are expecting an additional boost by adding food, beer and wine vendors to the fundraiser. At the school, we couldnt hold any raffles, and we couldnt sell beer or wine, Paulus added. Being able to offer those at this years festival will help us make a lot more money. In addition to selling tickets for this years Blue Ribbon Classic Golf Tournament raffle prize, a 2018 street legal golf cart ($25 donation per ticket, or $100 for five tickets), a 50/50 raffle will be available. Silent auction items will include restaurant gift certificates, hotel vacation stays, golf outings, gift baskets, a sailing excursion on a pirate ship and roundtrip passes on the Key West Express, among other terrific prizes. In addition to beer and wine sales, a number of local restaurants will be selling food favorites at the festival. They include The Pecking Order, Keylime Bistro, The Bubble Room, Joeys Custard, Sanibel Deli and the Hawaiian Shaved Ice truck. Entertainment will be provided by the Fort Myers-based band Wilder Brothers, plus a number of additional musical guests. The always-popular kids inflatable area will feature bounce houses, slides, a basketball free throw game, plus a rock climbing wall. Paulus also explained that each class from The Sanibel School is planning their own fundraising games and activities. The eighth grade class, for example, will offer a dunk tank, with various island celebrities taking a turn on the hot wet seat. Another class will put prisoners in a jail-style lockup, with funds raised through donations sought as their bail. Other activities will include cornhole, a fishing game, a musical game, card games and face painting. Allowing each class to conduct their own activity to raise funds is a win-win for everybody, said Paulus. Everyones gonna have a lot of fun, and the kids will be making money for their own classes. Tickets for the Seahorse Festival are $5 for adults; children are admitted free, and $20 wristbands will be sold for the Kids Inflatable Area for unlimited play. Sponsors of the 2018 Seahorse Festival include: Gold Sponsors ($1,000 to $5,000) George and Anna Sampas, Invest Florida Realty Nicholas and Kimberly Paulus, PGI Homes Anthony and Tia Farhat; Silver Sponsors (($500 to $999) Dan and Mary Bell; Bronze Sponsors ($100 to $499) Jay Scanlon of Scanlon Lexus/ Acura of Fort Myers, Ralph and Allison Quillen; Personal Best Sponsors ($25 to $99) Sanibel Charm-Lifestyle Blog. JJ Taylor and Point Ybel Brewery are beer sponsors, and Baileys General Store is the wine sponsor. Businesses may purchase vendor tables to hand out marketing materials and freebies at the Seahorse Festival. Tables are $100 each. Event sponsorships are also available.

Bailey Jr. Visitor Center were announced. Outgoing chamber board chair Donna Puma, who completed her second con secutive term, took time to thank her fellow members for another successful year during which everyone faced the challenge of recovering from the impacts of Hurricane Irma. We are truly fortunate to have a business community that works well together with local municipalities and residents, especially when we are faced with external factors affecting our islands including a gal named Irma, Puma told the crowd. It is no surprise that Sanibel became a stellar example of hurricane preparedness thanks to our mayor, our city manager, our police chief and local organizations. Our city had a plan and our businesses and residents followed that plan. Everyone worked together when it mattered most. Before passing the gavel to incoming board chair Aaron Pruss, Puma intro duced new chamber president John Lai, who shared some of the organizations accomplishments in 2017. Financially, the chamber flourished last year, boast ing $774,096 in total income. The chamber spent $166,380 for market ing purposes over the past year, with $450,000 in reserves fully funded. In addition, Lai lauded the chambers 11 ribbon cuttings, 1,100 people attend ing the monthly after hours events and continued on page 2B Members of the 2018-19 Sanibel & Captiva Islands Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, from left, Daniel Thompson, Melissa Rice, Donna Puma, Mary Bondurant, John Lai, Aaron Pruss, Lee Ellen Harder, Joel Goodman, Calli Johnson, David Wright and Jane Michaud photo by Jeff LysiakSCCF Tennis And Pickleball Tournament A Resounding Success

The membership retention rate remained high (90.6 percent) and online, the chambers Facebook membership grew by 10 percent. In the coming year, the chamber is looking forward to taking part in the recently-launched Shop Local Shop Small campaign, will be attending several travel and trade shows and will undergo a complete renovation of the visitor center located on Causeway Road. With work expected to begin in early fall, the visitor center refresh will include a redesigned interior that will increase visitor flow, incorporate a classic coastal design with enhanced visitor experience integrating technology Think touch screens, said Pruss and, according to Lai, maybe even a new logo to complete the rebranding process. Work on the new visitor center is expected to be completed prior to next season. The conceptual plan is to gut the entire first floor and renovate it in a contemporary and welcoming manner, added Pruss. Importantly, we are working with a national vendor with proven success incorporating interactive technology into visitors centers that is certain to appeal to the 21st century traveler. Prior to taking over his duties as chairman, Pruss offered his thanks to Puma for her years of service to the chamber. Donna has given her time, expertise, perspective and candor for two straight terms as president. She has been an exemplary leader of the board and an active participant in the organization and this community. Later, Pruss discussed his goals, which in addition to the modernization of the visitor center and establishing a more formal governance process for the board includes the restatement of the chambers by-laws in an effort to make certain that the chambers operations, from a governance standpoint, meet the requirements of the by-laws. If we, as an organization, can ac complish these two objectives during my tenur e, and I can gain half the respect I have of Donna from (chair-elect) Mary Bondurant, then I will consider this year a success, he added. Finally, Pruss and Bondurant handed out the chambers annual awards, including: Sue Rosica Gray Volunteer of the Year Award Pete and Nancy Bender; New Business of the Year Award LeeAnn Adams of Beach Daisy; Businessperson of the Year Award Mark Anderson of Benchmark General Contracting; Citizen of the Year Award Orlene Shimberg Following the meeting, chamber members mingled at a cocktail reception held in the Sundial ballroom.

Sanibel, FL 33957 coin.decoratingden.com 239.472.6551 Resort And Fire District Partner For Training ExerciseThings are about to heat up at the Island Inn on Sanibel. The historic hotel recently partnered with the Sanibel Fire & Rescue District to allow for a unique training exercise where first responders will use a building set for demolition to practice real-life fire and rescue scenarios. Currently, the prospective building acts as the maintenance operations center. But, with the inn nearing completion of its most recent phase of renovations, a state-of-theart maintenance and housekeeping facility has been built to better accommodate the day-to-day needs. When the inns general manager, Chris Davison, was approached by Sanibel Fire & Rescue District Assistant Chief William Briscoe, he saw it as a fitting way to give back to a department that has supported the inn for so many years. The Island Inn has a long standing relationship with the city and its agencies, said Davison. We feel privileged to be able to help some of the bravest folks in our community who have stood ready to assist Sanibel businesses and residents for decades. Each practice structure offered gives the firefighters a different experience and provides a way to heighten senses in a controlled setting. Because no two structures are ever the same, each one needs to be addressed differently, as they each present unique challenges when a fire and rescue scenario occurs. Live building scenarios also give firefighters an opportunity to test and practice new equipment, as well as allow for team building where veterans can lead and assist those with less experience. The practice is scheduled for sometime in April. For more information, contact the Sanibel Fire & Rescue District at 472-5525.

ISLAND SUN APRIL 20, 20188B Doug WilsonIsland Resident, Licensed & Insured239-292-3314 General Repairs Power WashingTHE SANIBEL HANDYMANNO JOB TOO SMALL HOME REPAIRS SPECIALIST! Ranger Honored With Conservation Educator AwardOn April 21, Toni Westland, supervisory refuge ranger at the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, traveled to Crystal River, Florida to accept the Florida chapter of The Wildlife Societys (FLTWS) 2018 Outstanding Educator Award. Erin Myers, Partners for Fish & Wildlife biologist at Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge east of Naples, along with Ding Darling Refuge Manager Paul Tritaik, nominated Westland for the award. Myers wrote, Her work at Ding Darling ranges from leading education programs for kids and adults to overseeing visitor services for over 930,000 visitors a year, and initiating new and innovative projects (i.e. Learning Lavatories) that garner national attention. The Ding Darling Wildlife Societys website describes the award thusly: The Outstanding Educator Award honors an individual who has developed and implemented educational tools relating to Floridas native wildlife. Educational tools may include any items, techniques, or programs used for effective public outreach. Application of the tools should strengthen relationships between natural resource professionals and the citizens of Florida, partnerships necessary to accomplish the FLTWS resource management, conservation, and education mission. The intended audience of the educational tools may be any age, and award nominees may include any wildlife professional or wildlife conservation educator. I am so honored and surprised by this, said Westland. I love the work I do at Ding Darling, and the pleasure I get from seeing kids of all ages discovering nature here is reward enough. At a time when federal staffing cuts have meant the loss of the so-important refuge educator position, Toni has had to step up her education role by filling in on various programs and training a new conservation educator that the Ding Darling Wildlife Society was able to hire through donor funding, added DDWS Executive Director Birgie Miller. She richly deserves this award. Ranger Toni Westland, right, with nominator Erin Myers photo provided Bringing The Outdoors In Part 3 of 3Fabricsby Jeanie TinchWhy not consider a fade proof, stain-resistant and worry-free fabric for your outdoor fabric needs, especially when it comes in bold, beautiful colors and fabulous prints? One type of high performance fabrics is called Sunbrella. Sunbrella fabrics are water repellant and air dry very quickly due to their breath able nature. Unless there is food or dirt on the fabric, it wont gr ow mildew. This is great news for outdoor furniture. No fabric can completely withstand the sun, but Sunbrella provides guidelines on the number of hours the fabrics will resist the UV rays. It also has been recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation as a fabric to help prevent 98 percent of the UV radia tion in shade applications like awnings or umbr ellas. Lets also consider seat cushions. What are they made of? Will the water move through or will it soak into the foam or fill ing and turn to a mildew mess on the first little rain? The fiber filling is an important consideration, especially if you dont take your cushions off the seats. Lets not forget to cover the floor of your outdoor space. Adding an outdoor rug that is resistant to the elements is one way to make your outdoor area feel like an extension of your living space. There are many great selections today for outdoor area rugs, some of them are even recycled products. No outdoor space would be complete without beautiful lighting. Many outdoor lights can be ordered to compliment your new furniture, including lamps. Draperies and screen shades also make the outdoor living space more comfortable throughout the day and add privacy in the evening. Allowing for shade control and sun regula tion, these products add to the comfort of the space and pr ovide privacy. Decorative accessories, sculpture and pillows make the outdoor area feel like the indoors and truly make it another room in your home. Jeanie Tinch is an interior designer on Sanibel/Captiva Islands.

ISLAND SUN APRIL 20, 201810B Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellIt just isnt Friday if Im not getting up fairly early and heading to my Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meeting. Believe it or not, I enjoy every meeting because we have some of the greatest speakers with such a variety of topics that it makes you think about how dedicated and passionate many of our fellow Lee County residents are in serving our community. We hear about a wide spectrum of nonprofit organizations and programs worthy of respect and attention. Their remarkable professional staffs and amazing volunteers give their time and effort to causes that are so important to the quality of life for all beings living here in our community. On April 6, our guest speaker was Kathy Rotterdale, a volunteer with the Animal Refuge Center (ARC) in North Fort Myers. Rotterdales love for animals drew her to ARC as a volunteer and she has since become an active board member. ARC began as a hope for an alternative to euthanasia to deal with the problems of unwanted healthy animals and advocate for the prevention of cruelty to animals. Incorporated in 1988, ARC is a not-for-profit animal welfare society, dedicated to caring for all homeless animals brought to its care at its 22.5acre sanctuary in North Fort Myers. The sanctuary is home to more than 400 cats and 75 dogs. ARC receives dogs and cats from other animal shelters in the county that have not been adopted and cannot be held at those facilities any longer. ARC also receives surrendered animals whose families cannot take care of them any longer. Animals that are placed with ARC go through a 10-day quarantine and evaluation period. Medical treatment, socialization and behavioral training, and basic obedience are available for all the canines providing an attractive attribute for those that wish to adopt a pet from the rescue center. Donations, fundraisers and grants help pay the mortgage and maintain the property, pay a small staff including a medical staff, house and feed the animals, provide medical treatment, and train canines with the hopeful end-result being that the rescue animals are adopted and find forever loving homes with qualified individuals. Rotterdale mentioned that Sanibel and Captiva residents and businesses lead the way in donations to ARC; one donor from the islands funded the construction of a recently built welcoming and adoption center. The love and attention these animals receive at ARC is outstanding. Volunteers are essential to ARCs success. ARC has cared for and found homes for thousands of animals over the past 20-plus years. Presently, there are 10 main buildings housing felines: The Gable Village, The Ekstrom Cottage, The Harley House, The Mary Williams Kitten Cottage, The Casa Marie, The Casa Luis, the Dixie D, Aeries Place, Maises Place and Beesleys Hideaway. In addition, there are five small cottages where cats are often placed for their introductory period. The Krieger Canine Village, McAllister Park and ARC Park are composed of 39 air-conditioned dog lodges for one to two dogs to reside. A doggy door allows them to go in and out of their lodge at will into their own play yard that has an awning for shade and a childs pool for wading. There is also a 2.5-acre fenced in park for the dogs, where they can run and exercise, along with an indoor canine training center. The dog and cat residents at ARC like it there, but they would like to find that special home that is meant only for them. If you are thinking about getting a new pet, why not check out this facilities by visiting the ARC campus in North Fort Myers? After all, they have somewhere around 400 cats and 75 dogs to choose from. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets Friday mornings at 7 a.m. at The Dunes Golf & Tennis Club. Guests are welcome.

FA345 Captiva Community Panel ReportMembers of the Captiva Community Panel will receive a briefing from planner David Depew at a special workshop on Tuesday, April 24 beginning at 9 a.m. at the Captiva Community Center, located at 11550 Chapin Lane. This session will focus on zoning and land use designations on the island, as well as the ordinances that set density and other land use regulations. While this briefing is open to the public and should be interesting and educational, the focus is for Depew to help panel members understand the zoning and land use issues as they begin work on updating the Captiva Code. For this reason, questions from the public will be held to the end. The outpouring of comments and ideas from the community in response to the recent community survey conducted by the panel was overwhelming, with a response rate near 25 percent exceptional for surveys of this nature. All the information collected and analyzed to date is available on the panel website: www. captivacommunitypanel.com under the Captiva Code section. Included is an aggregate of survey responses, a brief analysis of those, and all the comments provided under all the various topic areas and other questions. A more detail analysis is expected to be presented at the panels May 8 meeting, and will be posted online in advance of that meeting. The final Blind Pass Inlet Management Study Public Meeting is scheduled for Friday, April 27 at 1:30 in the Sea Pearl Room at South Seas Island Resort. There will be a short presentation followed by time for interested parties to speak individually with members of the study team. Lee County staff and the consulting team from APTIM (formerly known as CB&I) will present modeling results and accept comments and questions about inlet management scenarios and next steps. A draft report is anticipated by the end of May with a final report to be presented to elected officials and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection early this summer for direction on adoption and implementation. The next meeting of the Captiva Community Panel is set for Tuesday, May 8 beginning at 9 a.m. in the Cone Rooms on Chadwicks Square at South Seas Island Resort. This meeting is open to all interested islanders and the public. A more detailed review of the recent community survey will be presented, part of the public input process for the ongoing update of the Captiva Code. Input from this survey and the four community workshops will be discussed at the May 8 panel meeting, and will serve as the basis for research and review over the summer. Possible options on these issues will be discussed with the community in the fall. Among the other agenda items will be an update on the planned upgrades to the panel website, plus committee reports and update from other island organizations. Public participation is invited and encouraged. The next Captiva Community Panel meeting will be June 12. Information and background documents are available online at www. captivacommunitypanel.com. The next meeting of the Captiva Erosion Prevention District board is Wednesday, May 9 beginning at 1 p.m. at Tween Waters Inn. Call the district at 472-2472 or go to www.mycepd.com for further information.

The discussion takes place at 2:30 p.m. Newly divorced at 55 and living alone, New York Times writer John Leland felt unmoored as he struggled to come to terms with caring for his elderly mother. Then he began work on a series of articles about people 85 and older, focusing on six elders from different backgrounds. He visited them with no real agenda but listening.

ISLAND SUN APRIL 20, 201818B According to the College Board, the average cost of tuition and fees for the 2017-18 school year was $34,740 at private colleges, $9,970 for state residents at public colleges and $25,620 for out-of-state residents attending public universities. Add another $15,000 to $30,000 annually for books, supplies, room, board and living expenses depending upon the location of the institution. Consequently, youll find that attaining a bachelors degree can range between $125,000 and $300,000 or more. Backbreaking expense even for the affluent among us. In last weeks column I reviewed my perspective on my three daughters college admissions processes, as my youngest will be leaving the nest this next academic school year. I promised in this weeks column to address accessing scholarships to help pay for these monstrous expenses. Its important to keep in mind that financial aid and scholarships are two different things. Financial aid is usually awarded by means of completing a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) form, www.fafsa.ed.gov, which is part of a federal program. Most colleges and universities use the FAFSA process to determine financial need and award federal grants and loans based upon that need. Generally speaking, the income and financial resources of parents are used to determine the need of undergraduate students. It doesnt take a great amount of income and/or assets on the part of an undergraduates family to decrease the amount of eligible aid and grants offered. Retirement savings, for example, are included in the calculation as an available resource that a parent might use to educate his or her child. With the cost of education high and continuing to rise, its conceivable that a parent or grandparent burns through retirement accounts by allocating retirement resources to childrens college educations. A student might qualify for more aid or grants if his or her siblings are also in college concurrently, but not enough to make up the significant difference in the associated costs. It should be noted that gifts from parents and grandparents in the form of 529 Plans, UTMA accounts and trusts for college education are counted towards available resources, also limiting the amount of federal aid the student will qualify for. Since student loan debt might crush a freshly minted graduate, caution should be heeded before funding the majority of a college education with government and private loans. Most student loans cant be discharged in bankruptcy. This might be why so many thirty-somethings reside with their parents rather than renting apartments or purchasing first homes. Which brings us to scholarships. Many colleges and universities automatically consider applicants for academic scholarships based upon high school grade point average, standardized test scores and extracurricular achievements. When applying to a college or university, dont leave the process entirely up to the student. My kids, bleary-eyed from their high schools rigorous International Baccalaureate studies, often didnt thoroughly scour colleges websites for available scholarships, which sometimes required the submission of a separate application or essay. Moreover, there are a variety of public foundation and private scholarships available. Numerous websites offer insight, simply Google college scholarship opportunities. Once awarded an academic scholarship, dont give up! There may be even more money available. When my eldest daughter Gabrielle was accepted to Brandeis University, the scholarship offer wasnt as meaty as others offered from other universities. I telephoned the dean of admissions asking if the scholarship offer could be increased. He explained that Bernie Madoff stole a significant portion of Brandeis endowment, so they didnt have the resources to match competing schools. He did, however, eventually offer additional scholarship money which we accepted, as Brandeis was my daughters first choice. Gabi has since graduated magna cum laude with her bachelors degree, and next month will also graduate Brandeis with her masters degree. My middle daughter, Courtney, is a junior at the University of Florida, a public institution. While negotiating academic scholarships with large institutions isnt usually possible, there are programs like Florida Bright Futures earned through high school achievement, which provide a healthy scholarship as well. So long as your student maintains a 3.0 average (not a problem for Courtney!), Bright Futures continues for her four-year degree. My youngest daughter, Madison, was invited to compete for Elon Universitys Honors Fellowship. Elon invited 350 of the more than 2,000 applicants to visit campus last month to be interviewed by faculty, attend a lecture and write an essay from a prompt related to the class. Madi was recently awarded one of the 43 honors fellowships, along with a Presidential scholarship she received when first admitted. Elons scholarship offers will cover approximately two-thirds of her four-year tuition expense. Madison noticed that she could have competed for a variety of different honors, but chose to compete solely for the one that paid the most an all or nothing approach on her part, which I encouraged. If the Elons admission office really wanted her for the Class of 2022 (as I felt they did based on her exceptional high school academic performance), I figured theyd offer the honors fellowship rather than lose her to another school. A final thought goes to whether to apply for early decision. Many of the more competitive schools encourage applicants to apply early decision which means that if accepted, the applicant is bound to attend, regardless of scholarship offers or lack thereof. If there is an institution that your student is dead-set on, then applying early decision may increase his or her chances of admission. I dont favor this course, as I believe it removes all negotiating power over scholarship awards. If you have the resources and dont care, then by all means it might help your student get into a reach school. Two sons of a close family friend were admitted into their preferred schools of Duke and Vanderbilt through early decision. But neither received scholarship awards. If youre concerned about academic scholarships, then I would suggest a more flexible approach. Its similar to buying a car. If you limit yourself to a certain model, you are less likely to get the best deal than if you are open to a number of different models that have similar preferred features. Ultimately, even going through this process, each of my daughters enrolled in the university they felt was the right fit for them. Please understand that Im simply stating my opinion formed from my experiences over the past six years. Others may find success on a different path. I wish the best of luck for those currently engaged in the process. Courtney, by the way, is beginning her search to attend graduate school.

Mark OBrien Owner/Agent Trish Barbone Agent Justin Wheeler Agent We are HERE for all your insurance needs Life InsuranceTerm Insurance Case Study by J. Brendan Ryan, CLU, ChFC, MSFSFrom time to time, I feel the need to explain the ill effects of the siren song of term insurance. This is the sort of coverage, as opposed to whole life or universal life, that has no cash value and is only written today with a premium that sooner or later becomes unworkable. Every term policy that I have seen in recent years starts out with a level, guaranteed premium for a certain number of years, after which period premiums escalate at a horrendous pace. Today, I want to look at a 68-year-old man. Actually, the story starts eight years earlier when he was 60 years old. He wanted to plan to leave a financial legacy for his kids. So, he purchased $150,000 of 10-year term insurance. With this sort of policy, the premium starts low and stays at that low premium for 10 years. After that, the premium leaps up annually until it is, in all practicality, impossible to continue. His initial premium has been and continues to be $450 per year for another two years. He was confident that he wanted to keep the coverage for just 10 years. Now, at age 68, he is revisiting the topic. He wants to continue the policy beyond the first 10 years. So, he asked the insurer what they planned to charge him in the 11th year. Turns out that the premium that year will be about $11,000, which is 25 times the original premium. The following year, it goes to $13,000, and so on, which he cannot afford. What can I do for him now? Well, his health has deteriorated since he got the present policy, so any new premium will reflect that. He can continue his present policy for the last two years of the low premium. But in those two years, his health, which is just moderately good now, may deteriorate further and he may be uninsurable. In that case, he would have to either continue the present policy at a very high cost or else, go without insurance. If he is determined to carry 10-year term insurance, I can write $150,000 today for $2,000 per year. But that leaps to $24,000 in the 11th year, and up from there. Alternatively, at his present age, he could get that amount of universal life, that is, cash-value insurance, for a level premium of $5,300. That premium is scheduled to stay the same for life. How could he have avoided all this? He could have gotten universal life from the get-go eight years ago at a level cost of about $3,600. And, if he wished, he could have funded it with a higher premium so that after 20 or 30 years he could stop paying the premium for the rest of his life. The major takeaways here are (1) despite expectations to the contrary, people usually do not want to give up their insurance at later ages, and (2) because of this, term insurance is not a reliable type of protection except when the need is definitely short-term.

Human Trafficking Symposium Coming In MayThe 4th annual Human Trafficking Symposium will be held within Florida Gulf Coast Universitys Cohen Center Ballroom on Thursday, May 3 from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The symposium is presented by the Department of Justice Studies, Florida Gulf Coast University; the Department of Social Work, Florida Gulf Coast University; and Christys Cause, Inc., a local nonprofit working to eradicate child sex trafficking. Louis Bivona, founder and chairman of The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, northeast region, and founder of Bivona Child Advocacy Center, will be the keynote speaker. Admission is $50. Lee Health employees may attend at no cost with employee badge. Florida Gulf Coast University students may attend at no cost, based on space availability. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Human trafficking is on the rise, tied with arms dealing as the second largest criminal industry in the world and the fastest growing, according the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Human trafficking is a modern form of slavery. Victims are subjected to force, fraud or coercion for the purpose of commercial sex or forced labor. Victims are children, teenagers, women and men. The U.S. Department of State reports that less than one percent of sex trafficking victims are identified, said Dr. Amanda Evans, EdD, MSW, LCSW, assistant professor, Florida Gulf Coast University Department of Social Work. The goal of the symposium is to provide new tools to identify and treat victims of human trafficking and to reignite our passion to help the 99 percent of unidentified victims in our community. We are so pleased to have Lou Bivona join us as keynote speaker for this years symposium, said Christy Ivie, founder of Christys Cause. Service to missing, exploited and sexually abused children has been his lifelong driving passion. Bivona and John Walsh established the Adam Walsh Center in 1982, which became the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in 1984. His personal fundraising efforts resulted in more than $30 million raised. In 2001, he led efforts to establish the Bivona continued on page 22B

Despite Miserable Weather, Red Sox Have Best Start In The Teams Historyby Ed FrankIn the long 118-year history of the Boston Red Sox, the team has never had a better season start than this year 13-2 through the first 2-1/2 weeks. We know this torrid pace of .867, the best in baseball as the week began, cannot continue. But many a team has buried itself in the early weeks of a season with lop-sided losing records. Not so for the Red Sox in 2018 under first-year manager Alex Cora. In cold rainy weather, with wind chills below freezing at Fenway Park, Boston completed a weekend sweep of Baltimore to finish their first home stand of the season at 8-1. The weather was so bad, as it has been in so many baseball cities, that the traditional Patriots Day game scheduled for Monday was postponed. It was the first time since 1984 that this game on the day of the Boston Marathon was postponed. We wrote last week of the problem year-after-year of early season baseball in snowy, frigid weather. And it hasnt improved since. Red Sox All-Star pitcher Chris Sale said after Sundays game, This is the most miserable Ive ever been on a baseball field by far, not even close. Similar sentiments were expressed by Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon after Saturdays game at Wrigley Field. The weather even worsened the next day in Chicago, forcing postponement of Sundays and Mondays games. Blizzard conditions in Minneapolis resulted in postponing three of four weekend games between the Minnesota Twins and the Chicago White Sox. The Twins were happy to escape that weather for a two-game series this week in Puerto Rico against the Cleveland Indians that helped raise funds for the hurricane-ravaged island. The April snow, sleet, rain and wind have wreaked havoc on Major League baseball schedules, wiping out 24 games through the first 2-1/2 weeks. Theres going to be a lot of double-headers and scheduled off-day games played to make up for these postponements. Everblades Brad Ralph League Coach Of The Year The Florida Everblades began postseason hockey Monday with a 4-1 victory over the Atlanta Gladiators at Germain Arena in a best-of-seven series. Following the first two games on home ice, this first round of the Kelly Cup Playoffs shifts to Atlanta for Games Three, Four and a fifth game if necessary. Everblades Coach Brad Ralph has been named winner of the John Brophy Award for the ECHL Coach of the Year. In his two seasons behind the bench, his Everblades have compiled a 99-34-11 record. Fort Myers Miracle Begin Season At 6-5 The Fort Myers Miracle baseball team, the advanced A club of the Minnesota Twins, began the 2018 season with a 6-5 record. In the early going, this record found the team in fifth place in the Florida State League South Division as this week began, but only two games behind first-place Bradenton. The Miracle started a long nine-game road trip Tuesday with stops at Dunedin, Bradenton and Clearwater before returning home to Hammond Stadium April 26 for three games against Daytona.Outfielder Jimmy Kerrigan leads the teams offense with a .389 batting aver age.

Miracle Youth Baseball Camps Begin April 28The Fort Myers Miracle will be offering three baseball camps for children in Southwest Florida to learn the game from professional players and coaches. The 13th annual Disability Dream & Do baseball camp for children with special needs runs from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 28. The camp is free in partnership with the Dave Clark Foundation, and offers children with disabilities an opportunity to interact with Miracle players and coaches on the ballfield as they progress through hitting, fielding and throwing stations. The Miracle also are offering two baseball camps for youth looking to sharpen their skills and fundamentals under the guidance of Miracle players, coaches and staff. The camp for children ages 6 to 8 is July 10 to 12 and ages 9 to 12 is July 17 to 19. Both camps run from 9 a.m. to noon at CenturyLink Sports Complex, 14100 Six Mile Cypress Parkway in Fort Myers. The cost is $115 per child and includes a T-shirt, Miracle gift, precamp snacks and lunches, and one box seat ticket to a Miracle game each night of the camp. I think our players and coaches enjoy these baseball camps as much as the children, said Chris Peters, Miracle president and general manager. Its a great opportunity for them to share their baseball knowledge and insight with area children, but more importantly, just show them how to enjoy the game of baseball. Space is limited.

ISLAND SUN APRIL 20, 201822B Doctor and DieticianMaintaining Social Connectednessby Ross Hauser, MD and Marion Hauser, MS, RDHealthy eating and proper exercise are essential for a robust life, but another important aspect of healthy living is connecting socially. Maintaining meaningful social connections boosts overall health by strengthening the immune system, improving physical health and maintaining psychological wellbeing. Social connectedness helps folks maintain a healthy body weight, manage blood sugars, improve cancer survival, reduce cardiovascular mortality, alleviate depression, decrease posttraumatic stress disorder and improve overall mental health. Connection with others who feel what we feel, understand how we think, and who are able to relate to us on a heart-to-heart level is one of lifes most important skills and needs. As you might guess, those who are disconnected reap the opposite results, such as physical and emotional disease and isolation. In the United States, social isolation is becoming increasingly prevalent, with 40 percent of Americans indicating they are lonely. Social isolation weakens and shortens our lives, and its negative effects are comparable to things like smoking, obesity, substance abuse and violence. We need human connections for physical, emotional and spiritual health. Those who feel connected have lower rates of anxiety and depression because their involvement in a social network provides the giving and receiving of trust and empathy. If you find it difficult to connect with people, adopting a furry friend may be the path for you. Pet owners show similar benefits in terms of well-being compared to non-pet owners. Belonging is an irresistible need of all people. We are biologically, cognitively, physically and spiritually wired to love, to be loved, and to belong. When that doesnt occur, our health suffers. Be courageous and take the initiative. Foster, nurture and build your social connections. In addition to following a healthy diet and exercising, cultivating meaningful relationships is a crucial aspect of your well-being.

It is such an important word that I even chose years ago to name one of my very first product creations after it. I decided to attach words to my products that would not only address what the product was designed to do but to help people look into their lives to stay on the right path. Remove is not only the very first thing you need to do to move forward in life, but it is also a necessary thing to do daily to stay balanced and to continue to have your most beautiful life. Why do I put such great importance on this word? The reasons vary, but the most important one is that if you dont pay attention to the things that need to be removed from your life, you will never make room for the good stuff that will fill that space. You see, things tend to make their way into your life without you even realizing whether they are helping or hindering you. Let me give you some of my favorite examples of things that should regularly be removed: (Emotional) Negative thoughts and feelings of self-doubt. Tell yourself how awesome you are and make way for the I can and I will attitude that you were blessed with. (Spiritual) Deeply held beliefs that dont inspire you to be better. If whatever you were taught to believe isnt helping you to grow into a better human being, then leave it behind and find something that will. (Physical) Unhealthy habits that are limiting you from being your best. The time is now to take control of your body and your health, clean out and enjoy the benefits. (Environmental) Clutter from things that are no longer necessary in your life. It is now time to filter through closets, cabinets, offices and garages to make room for better space and organization. (Social) People that dont support or inspire you to be all that you can be. Lets face it, before you even realize it, there are people in your life that are taking you away from the important people that matter the most and continue to enhance your world. Build a healthy distance from those that drain your energy instead of fuel your fire. Remove is a word that we need to keep in our daily lives but I especially believe that springtime is a perfect time to assess the things that need to go. What a great time for cleaning out and starting fresh with a new outlook, new goals and possibly some new friends that will support you on your journey. My affirmation for you this week is: I will take a close look at the various aspects of my life to remove the things that might keep me from moving towards being the best that I can be.

SUN deaRPharmacistCoffee Shops Must Display Cancer Warningby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Readers: When I think of acrylic, my mind goes to nail salons where they apply hard acrylic to your fingernails it doesnt go to coffee or potato chips! But this compound is, in fact, almost always present in coffee and potato chips, as well as many other foods such as cereal, French fries, peanut butter even prune juice. Acrylamide levels are higher in things that are fried like French fries. Just like frying, toasting can produce acrylamide; thats why dark toast is worse for you than light toast, as are well-down hash browns versus lightly browned ones basically the darker (more cooked) areas on your food tend to have more acrylamide. Coffee is high in acrylamide, and thats why coffee shops are facing scrutiny now. Id like a vanilla latte, double-shot, extra whipped cream, no acrylamide. Starbucks and other big-name cafes are under fire. You see, acrylamide is a compound known to the FDA as a possible carcinogen. To be fair, the carcinogenic potential of dietary-related acrylamide from foods and beverages is actually unknown. Natural coffee beans dont have acrylamide, it happens during the refinement process. When coffee growers roast their coffee beans, the acrylamide content goes up to a certain degree. Then coffee houses prepare beverages for us (the consumer), and we drink it. Does that mean were drinking acrylamide? In recent breaking news, Superior Court Judge Elihu M. Berle has just ruled that coffee companies like Starbucks, Peets and others will have to carry the cancer warning label in the state of California. I am confident this cancer-causing acrylamide problem wont even impact their sales not even a dollar! Coffee lovers arent going to run because we, as a nation, are fairly desensitized to toxins by now. Nobody cares if meat contains 28 different ingredients, aside from meat. Nobody cares if blueberry cereal doesnt have real blueberries in it, but rather purple goo. Nobody cares if French fries are fried in disgusting oil. These are the foods that are the highest in acrylamide, so youll want to avoid or minimize these: French fries and potato chips Grains like pasta Breakfast cereal Darkly toasted bread or bagels Certain cookies Lightly roasted coffee beans Peanut, almond or sunflower butter Thats just the main foods. There are others which I can share in my extended version of this article. Ive written a much more comprehensive article about this, including more about why the foods above are high in acrylamide and what you can substitute. Ive also offered a list of foods and supplements that offset the damage done by acrylamide. To get all of this, its simple. Just sign up for my free newsletter at www.suzycohen.com, and Ill email it to you on Tuesday. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

How available should I be without seeming too desperate and needy?A: Dating in the 21st century is not easy. With use of social media, dating these days, one would think, would be simple. Many question just how to handle how much to communicate on the dating sites, text, talk on the phone, first meetings etc. I have seen countless women in my practice feel conflicted on how available to be for someone they are dating without seeming needy or desperate. We all have a certain amount of baggage we bring to the table. Its not a good idea to tell all in the beginning. Go easy and pace yourself. I believe a good rule of thumb is moderation. It is a good idea to pace yourself especially in the beginning when you are getting to know one another. If women feel insecure, they are apt to share too much too soon, including making too much effort. Let the man pursue you. Be yourself, and be a bit old fashioned. You dont have to be too available and remember that men like the chase even though they dont admit it. Let him do the work, and you dont always have to be available. Its okay to say no and have other plans. Men do not like desperate and needy, and you dont want to be desperate and needy. Someone who wants to spend time with you and get to know you will make the effort. Its also okay not to return texts or phone calls right away. You can enjoy his company and get to know him, and get to know others as well. You will be able to eliminate men you are not that interested in as time goes on, and you can develop more of a relationship with him while you go slowly. You are worth his wait. I would caution you on getting too intimate too soon. Respect yourself and your body and in time so will he. The bottom line is just be yourself and make wise choices that wont compromise your own self-respect. Have fun and show up in the room. Do not be attached to the outcome and let it all unfold the way its supposed to unfold, and you will be much happier no matter what the result. If he stops communicating, forget him and go onto the next one. You will be glad you did.

Top 10 Real Estate SalesCourtesy of Royal Shell Real Estate 31B ISLAND SUN APRIL 20, 2018 My Stars FOR WEEK OF APRIL 23, 2018Aries (March 21 to April 19) You easily handle your tasks this week, thanks to those high energy levels that never seem to run down. But pace yourself, Lamb, for the demanding week ahead. Taurus (April 20 to May 20) With the arts dominant this week, you might want to pick up any of those creative projects youve neglected. A workplace situation benefits from some fresh insight. Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Music helps replenish your energy levels. Stream your playlist if you must. But a live concert could prove more rewarding, especially if you go with that very special someone. Cancer (June 21 to July 22) Close friends reach out to help perk up your lagging social life. That workplace situation also eases, leaving you time to do more fun things by weeks end. Leo (July 23 to August 22) A revelation clears up that perplexing job-related problem. Some changes will have to be made, which, no doubt, will meet with the Big Cats roaring approval. Good luck. Virgo (August 23 to September 22) Reaching out to someone in need is the noble thing to do. But try to restrain the temptation to add a lecture -no matter how well-intended -to your good deed. Libra (September 23 to October 22) There could be another tough challenge to face before the month is over. But all that hard work is winning you lots of important recognition from your peers. Scorpio (October 23 to November 21) Keeping to your work schedule could prove difficult with all those personal distractions. Best advice: Stay with it. Therell be time later for socializing. Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21) Jumping hurdles this week might be vexing for most, but not for the sage Sagittarian, who recognizes that meeting a challenge can open up opportunities. Capricorn (December 22 to January 19) More obstacles might be thrown in your path as you try to finalize a new agreement. But the sure-footed Goat ignores the stumbling blocks and stays the course. Aquarius (January 20 to February 18) We know the Water Bearer takes pleasure in giving to others. But why not let someone else enjoy the experience too by accepting that offer of help? Pisces (February 19 to March 20) You might find that you need to ease up on your hectic schedule this week. Dont fret about it. It could be helpful to take a break and replenish your energy supply. Born This Week: You have a way of finding practical solutions to complex problems, and you do it with grace. It was Edna St. Vincent Millay, a playwright and the first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for poetry, who made the following observation: A person who publishes a book appears willfully in public with his pants down. I dont know who studies such things, but those who do say that over the course of a lifetime, youll probably spend about three years in the restroom. Despite numerous arrests and trials, famed 19th-century outlaw Frank James was never convicted of anything and never went to prison. He died in 1915, at the age of 72, of natural causes. In Germany in the 1500s, a court physician by the name of Oswaldt Gabelthouer wrote a medical book full of remedies that he guaranteed would be effective. For insanity, the patient must cut his or her hair close to the head, then tie two halves of a rams liver to the head. A severe case of epilepsy, he claimed, could be cured if the patient wore the right eye of a wolf and the left eye of a she-wolf on a thong about the neck for three months; also, the patient had to forgo bathing during that time. Theres no mention in the record at hand of how a patient would go about redeeming the guarantee. When groups of shrimp end up with too few males to sustain the population, some of the females turn into males. If someone called you a mumpsimus, would you be flattered or insulted? It seems that the appropriate reaction would be to take offense. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, a mumpsimus is a stubborn person who insists on making an error in spite of being shown that it is wrong. Calamities are of two kinds: misfortunes to ourselves, and good fortune to others. -Ambrose Bierce THOUGHT FOR THE DAY STRANGE BUT TRUE SCRAMBLERS Hortoons Subdivision City Year BuiltSquare FootageListing Price Selling Price Days On Market Marina PointeBonita Springs 1997 8,667 $4,750,000 $4,500,000 58 Barefoot BeachBonita Springs 2000 6,485 $4,250,000 $3,775,000 426 Richardsons O L Subd Sanibel 2000 3,643 $3,999,000 $3,675,000 47 Bonita BeachBonita Springs 1997 3,175 $3,499,000 $3,100,000 74 Bonita BeachBonita Springs 1989 1,725 $2,900,000 $2,600,000 90 Carolands Bonita Springs 1990 3,955 $2,295,000 $2,100,000 23 Belle Meade Fort Myers 2007 5,613 $1,795,000 $1,500,000 13 Cape Coral Cape Coral 2010 3,751 $1,690,000 $1,527,500 112 Cape Harbour Cape Coral 2009 3,533 $1,650,000 $1,420,000 48 Oakbrook Estero 2005 3,565 $1,375,000 $1,335,000 19
