Locally, theres been a lot of interest, said Mensch. And weve been very transparent that these shells are not on display. But people still ask if theyll be part of a tour or if they can see them. Really, theyre not very visible, even to us (staff). According to Mensch, the live junonias ( Scaphella junonia ) being studied in one of the research tanks spend most of their day buried in the sand. The movement of decorations in the tank indicates the junonias may be more active at night, the museums Facebook page noted on April 26. In the future, we will be setting up night vision cameras to confirm this supposition. Nearly two months ago, Mensch alongside museum executive director Dorrie Hipschman revealed details of a shelling expedition during which the junonia trio was found. Hoping to gain some more insight into the biology of live junonias, Mensch had been invited to participate in a research cruise fronted by Dr. Greg Herbert, associate professor at the University of South Florida (USF) School of Geosciences and USFs Institute of Oceanography. Dr. Herbert, who is also on the museums board of trustees, is engaged in a project mapping the mollusk community of the Florida gulf shelf. The expedition, which ran from February 22 to 26, performed 30 dredges of marine material around the clock some 100-plus miles out into the Gulf of Mexico at depths of 65 to 1,100 feet. Sometimes you get nothing, and sometimes theres a lot, Mensch told a crowd of museum staff, supporters and volunteers on March 14. But we didnt find a single live junonia we found three!continued on page 8 Marine biologist Rebecca Mensch next to the aquarium containing three live junonias photo courtesy Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museumby Jeff LysiakOn the morning of April 26, just before sunrise, Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) Sea Turtle Program coordinator Kelly Sloan was joined by second-year volunteer and permittee-in-training Stefanie Plein during her daily beach patrol monitoring for nesting activity. Plein, a marine biologist with New Wave Eco Charters on Captiva, began her work as a volunteer for SCCF last year due to her affinity for sea turtles. I had been trying to find a way to expand my volunteer interests on the island, she noted. And I wasnt a morning person until I started going out on the sea turtle nest patrols. But during her second time out on patrol with Sloan this season, Plein experienced what every program volunteer dreams of most: discovering the first loggerhead sea turtle nest of the year. And to make her experience even more memorable, the female loggerhead was still onshore, covering her newly-laid eggs with sand. We were driving the vehicle up the beach when Kelly saw something, said Plein. I could see the (sea turtle) tracks ahead of us, but when I saw her, I shouted, Shes still there! According to Sloan, she stopped the SCCF all-terrain vehicle about 80 feet away from the nesting loggerhead. There was one woman who was standing nearby, but she was so respectful and wasnt too close, said Sloan, who explained that oftentimes sea turtles will abandon their nesting efforts called a false crawl if humans or other animals are too close to the nest location. We didnt want to spook her, so we just hung back. I could then see that she was in the latter stages of the nesting process, so continued on page 6 On April 26, SCCF Sea Turtle Program volunteer Stefanie Plein helped find the first sea turtle nest of the season on Captiva, discovering the female loggerhead still covering her eggs with sand photos provided Closeup of the sea turtle using her flippers to cover her eggsDiscovering The First Sea Turtle Nest

ISLAND SUN MAY 18, 20184 rfntbb b b b b b b b Find us on bb tOpen Monday-Saturdaywww.threecraftyladies.com The Importance Of Climbing Treessubmitted by Cindy DeCosta, Director, Childrens Education Center of the IslandsSome of us can remember climbing as far as you could to the top of a tree and feeling that you had conquered the world. Letting your imagination take over while you were the captain of your ship, sailing through rough waters with a storm looming just ahead. Sadly, how often do you see a child in a tree anymore? Learning how to climb a tree is becoming a lost art. Many parents are afraid their child might fall, might be bitten by a snake or spider, or worse yet, might get dirty! This mentality is depriving our children of so many benefits of learning to climb and fall from a tree. In todays world, so many of our children sit all day at school, in the car, on their phone or at the computer, that their bodies are becoming literally weak. It is our job as educators and parents to reverse this trend before it is too late. On a recent beautiful day at our preschool, I was sitting 10 feet away from our magnificent wild tamarind tree watching as some of our students were attempting to climb the tree. Some were successful, some werent, but all of them kept trying to get up that tree. One student was so excited that he made it up, he let go to shout and quickly fell straight backwards onto the ground. Now before you start thinking how awful I was to allow him to fall, that I wasnt right under him to catch him, please realize that once he caught his breath, he looked at me to see if he was in trouble (for falling). I simply smiled, asked if he was okay and he started climbing right back up that tree! The amount of courage, perseverance and determination by that child was a wonderful sight. And what a valuable lesson he learned. I could have told him 50 times to keep three points of contact on the tree, the technical way of teaching a child to climb a tree, or he could have learned it by falling four feet. The benefits of a simple task such as climbing trees are vital to our children. While climbing trees, a child must think about the best route to take with their hands and feet to go up, and down, which develops critical thinking and problem solving skills. Spacial awareness is also being acquired as they figure out how to fit their bodies in between branches and tight spots. Gross motor skills and muscle strength are being challenged as they must lift their bodies with their arms and legs while reaching with their hands and feet. Core strength is being developed. Concentration is being tested as they truly focus on their next move. And once they have climbed as far as they are comfortable, self-regulation, the confidence and boost of self-esteem that will be beaming from them is absolutely invaluable. There are also the lessons learned from falling from a tree. Honestly, how many of us fell from a tree more than once and never broke a bone? I bet you next time they will hold tighter to the branch or choose a different path up that tree. Very valuable lessons can be taught from falling. The cherry on top is a child exploring the world around them, giving them an appreciation for nature which in turn will result in an appreciation for conservation, something our little island values tremendously. So the next time you longingly look at a tree and wish you could be dangling from the tippy top branches yelling Ahoy Matey!, grab your child and encourage them to climb. Remember, it they need a boost, they arent quite ready. Be patient little grasshopper, they will indeed figure it out in due time. The Childrens Education Center of the Islands is a 501(c)3 nonprofit preschool offering full-time and part-time classes for children ages 12 months to 5 years, and offers free Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK). The preschool is still accepting applications for the 2018-19 school year, which begins on August 13. Scholarships are also available on a limited basis. For more information, call Ms. Cindy at the preschool at 472-4538 or email cindy@ childrenseducationcenter.com. Pace Padgett showed incredible strength as he shows off his climbing abilities Hunter Bailey found a dangling branch from the tree and used tremendous arm and core strength to swing from the branch Turner Zimmerman showed his pride of accomplishment after climbing the tree. He was so proud, he stayed in the tree until pickup time to show his mom. photos provided

Fort the next 15 minutes, Sloan and Plein observed the loggerhead using her flippers to cover her eggs with sand. Then, slowly and methodically, the sea turtle made her way back into the Gulf of Mexico. She looked very healthy, added Sloan. And I noted that she was missing her rear left flipper. You could tell that from the track impression she left in the sand. Finding the first loggerhead nest of the season also had a deep, personal meaning for Plein. Prior to the discovery, she had pledged to adopt the first nest she helped find in honor of her grandmother, Joyce Wolf, who passed away at age 80 back in January. My grandmother was always so proud of my accomplishments, Plein said of her grandmother, who lived in Bark River, Michigan. I just wanted to remember her in a way that helps benefit conservation. According to SCCF, the cost of adopting a sea turtle nest is $75. That includes a tax-free deduction of $58 with a T-shirt, or $75 without one. For additional information, visit www.sccf.org/our-work/ sea-turtles. Earlier this month, Plein traveled to Michigan to attend her grandmothers memorial service. She told her grandfather about her experience of finding the first loggerhead nest of the season. He showed me the T-shirt and certificate they sent him, said Plein, who noted that both she and Sloan recently lost their grandmothers. What better way could I remember her than with sea turtle babies? Its a really nice way to honor someone, added Sloan. Every year between April 15 and October 31, sea turtle nests on Sanibel and Captiva are identified and marked for both monitoring and protection. As nesting season progresses, new hatches are evaluated and that data is recorded. The statewide collection of data helps promote programs that improve the chances for sea turtles to survive. In 2017, SCCFs Sea Turtle Program volunteers counted 684 nests on Sanibel 650 loggerhead nests and 34 green nests and 189 nests on Captiva. Both the loggerhead and the green nest counts for Sanibel surpassed previous records. It was the fourth year in a row that Sanibel has broken historic nesting records. Around 6:45 a.m., the loggerhead was in the final stages of covering her newly-laid eggs with sand Loggerhead approaching the waters edge photos provided Periwinkle Place Shops Sanibel Island 239-472-4177 CongressJewelers.com SEALIFE FASHION DIAMONDS ESTATE SAVE UP TO 30%On Specially Selected Sealife by Congress Collection.

And while these live mollusks wont be on public display at the museum, they are being featured in videos and photo galleries posted on Facebook as well as on the museums website at www.shellmuseum.org/ junonia. Since the junonias have been on Sanibel, a number of interesting facts about the rare shell species have been confirmed and revealed: Junonias lack an operculum, but do have an epipodium covered in small papillae; The mottled coloring of the junonia body probably helps it camouflage; Junonias have a short siphon which does not protrude out of the sand when they bury themselves. And during the weeks that followed their arrival, Mensch has shared on Facebook a number of other discoveries about the museums most famous current residents: April 12 The museum is happy to announce that we can confirm the 1971 work by Bayer and Voss; Junonias do indeed eat lettered olives (Americoliva sayana). April 19 Like some other gastropods, the junonia is a predator. Some people may see predators as mean, but they play crucial roles in keeping ecosystems healthy. May 3 Junonias, like lettered olives, lack an operculum. Even though these species share this trait, they belong to different families. Junonias, unlike lettered olives, each have a papillaecovered epipodium which is clearly visible when the animal retracts into its shell. News of the museums groundbreaking discovery has reached far and wide. One malacologist based in Russia, looking to publish a paper on the anatomy of junonias, recently contacted Dr. Jos H. Leal, the museums curator and scientific director, to inquire about details of the live shells. Local interest has been rather high, too. I was talking with a random lady on the beach the other day, and she was asking me about shells, said Mensch, who never revealed to the woman where she worked. When we started talking about junonias, she asked me, Did you hear that the shell museum just found three live junonias? People are really excited about this. According to Mensch, she checks on the junonias about once per week, monitoring their movement, feeding habits, mobility and overall health. None of the shells have been identified either male or female, so any breeding experiments have been put on hold. They only feed about once a month, which isnt too surprising, she explained. But it has been surprising how little we see them. Its kind of like a zombie movie youll see them come up out of the sand. Sometimes theyll move up along the sides of the tank, but then theyll go right back and bury themselves. In addition to continuing to study the junonias temperature needs, substrate, water flow and water quality needs, Mensch stated that they are planning to do some lighting experiments next month. Well be using a night vision camera to monitor their nighttime activity, she added. While the most common question Mensch hears about the junonias is whether the museum has any plans to put them on display for the public to see them, she reiterated that these shells spend most of their day buried underneath a layer of sand. Still, the excitement of the discovery of live junonias keeps her inspired to learn more about these mollusks. Its really exciting when you see so many people that are interested in them, Mensch said. People who follow the junonias on our Facebook page are always excited when we post new stuff. And I kinda get excited knowing that were the first people to see this stuff. The best way for shelling novices, aficionados and professionals around the world can monitor the junonias is via the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museums Facebook page. To learn more about junonias, visit the Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum, located at 3075 Sanibel-Captiva Road, or visit online at www.shellmuseum.org/ junonia.

ISLAND SUN MAY 18, 201810 Coyote Puppy Treated At CROWby Jeff LysiakOn the afternoon of May 7, an orphaned coyote pup was admitted to the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) after being found wandering all alone in Labelle. According to Dr. Heather Barron, hospital director at CROW, the male coyote puppy appeared to be about five weeks old and weighed in at just under two pounds. His eyes were open, and he appeared to be in pretty good physical condition, she said. He showed signs of mild dehydration, for which it was provided fluids subcutaneously. CROW team members also treated the coyote for fleas. Found alone, Dr. Barron speculated that the pup may have wandered off from wherever its mother had left him. He probably lost contact with his mother, so he may have just wandered away from where she stashed him, she added. After being treated at the Sanibel facility for less than 24 hours, the juvenile coyote (Canis latrans) was transported to wildlife rehabilitator in the Tampa area. Theyre a social species, so its best that he will be raised with the other pups they have there, added Dr. Barron. He will be kept there for educational purposes. Considered a naturalized species because they arent native to Florida, coyotes are rather new to Southwest Florida. And prior to 2011, there had never been a confirmed coyote sighting on Sanibel. But according to a 2017 study conducted by an expert research team from the University of Georgia, between 27 and 67 coyotes are currently roaming the island. According to the report prepared by the University of Georgias Wardell School of Forestry and Natural Resources, the origin of coyotes on Sanibel is unknown. Coyotes are strong swimmers and may have made their way to the island during times of low tide (likely from nearby islands to the north). Alternatively, or perhaps additionally, it is possible that some individuals crossed the causeway which connects the island with Southwest Florida, the UGA report stated. It is also unknown whether the population in question is resident to the island, or merely uses the island as a core area of their home range, moving between the island and other offshore habitats. It may be that coyotes are traveling regularly to the island in order to exploit key resource(s). In 1983, coyotes could be found in 18 Florida counties, expanding into 48 counties by 1990. The first confirmed sighting on the island occurred in February 2011 when a single coyote was photographed strolling through the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge. By 2014, the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) had reported that coyotes contributed to a significant portion of sea turtle nest depredation. That same year, 33 percent of nests were depredated by mammalian predators. In addition to nest depredation, they may also be causing sea turtles to abandon their nesting attempts and creating other negative impacts in the quality of nesting habitat, an SCCF report states, in part. In fact, one of the tagging project goals was to characterize potential shifts of nest sites away from coyote-dense stretches of beach in response to these pressures, but based on 2016 data, we do not see any indication this is happening. Once SCCF began to add protective screens on top of sea turtle nesting sights, the rate of depredation decreased significantly. Dr. Barron also mentioned that coyotes are considered a nuisance species, due to their tendencies of preying upon domesticated pets and smaller native animals. (Coyotes) are one of the few wild animal species whose populations are expanding even as human populations expand into their territory, said Dr. Barron. Theyre comfortable living around humans. They eat our trash and they attack smaller animals and family pets. CROW has treated coyotes in the past, however, it isnt very often that they come across a healthy pup. When coyotes do come here, its usually because theyve been hit by a car, said Dr. Barron, who explained that this time of year is considered puppy season for coyotes. The animals typically breed during January and February, with litters of puppies born around 63 days later. Dr. Barron also noted that dealing with puppies at the clinic is far easier than older coyotes. The young ones are usually extremely shy, she said. Puppies tend to be submissive and timid Ive never had a coyote puppy try to bite me.

Plant SmartLargeleaf Geigertreeby Gerri ReavesLargeleaf geigertrees (Cordia sebestena) native status is still being debated. Some sources say it is native only to the southernmost Florida Keys, where John James Audubon featured it in an 1832 painting of whitecrowned pigeons. But whether it was introduced to the U.S. at least a couple of centuries ago or is indeed native, theres no doubt about its value in the South Florida landscape. Desirable attributes include pretty evergreen foliage and year-round showy orange flowers. Add to those wildlife friendliness, low maintenance and high wind resistance, and its easy to understand why this species is on Lee Countys Protected Tree List. A member of the borage, or forgetme-not, family, this tree is also called scarlet cordia. It takes the form of a large shrub or small tree, usually 15 to 30 feet high with rough dark-brown bark and a rounded crown. Alternative oval or heart-shaped leaves are deep green with paler undersides. They are up to eight inches long with pointed tips and about four inches wide. A covering of stiff hairs gives them a rough texture. The clusters of tubular flowers bloom all year, but mostly in spring and summer, attracting hummingbirds, pollinating insects and butterflies, such as the large orange sulpher and Schaus swallowtail. The flowers have crinkly edges and measure an inch or two across. Their resemblance to a geranium from a distance earns the tree another name, geranium tree. The pulpy white eggor pear-shaped fruit is about an inch long and edible but not tasty. High salt tolerance makes it suitable for coastal landscape, and drought tolerance lessens the maintenance. One thing this tree wont tolerate, however, is cold. Plant it in sun or light shade in welldrained soil. It can grow in nutrient-poor soil but needs some organic content. It is recommended that largeleaf Geigertree be used as a background plant, since the leaves are vulnerable to the geiger beetle, and the plant is generally pest sensitive. Propagate it with the one or two seeds in the fruit. Sources: Florida Gardners Guide by Tom MacCubbin and Georgia B. Tasker, Florida Landscape Plants by John V. Watkins and Thomas J.

A salad luncheon has become a yearly event for this final meeting with all the members contributing a salad to share. This year, there was quite a variety layered, Caesar, green pea, spinach and, of course, potato salad. At the business meeting, plans were laid out for next years activities which include the following: October 9 Late Season Plants, Fall Thru Early Spring Bloomers November 13 Design a Dish Garden; Cacti, Succulents and Companion Plants December 11 Decorating the White House for Christmas January 8 Easy Orchids for SW Florida February 12 Flower Arranging Workshop March 12 ART IN BLOOM; combination art and flower show held at the Sanibel Library April 9 Preparing Your Landscape for the summer May 14 Plants that Grow Well in Southwest Florida Speaker for the May meeting was The News-Press columnist Amy Bennett Williams. Years ago, Bennett Williams started the Tropicalia section of the paper. Today, she not only is featured on NPR radio, but also writes a weekly column for The New Press called Field Notes. She read several of her essays and then had a lively discussion about her career. Her final note was that there is good karma in plant sharing. The Shell Islands Garden Club meets monthly from October to May. Although a majority of the members head north for the summer, an intrepid group called the Summer Girlz meet monthly on an informal basis for lunch and field trips. The first outing for them this summer will be in June to Brambles Tea Room in Naples. For more information, contact club president Susan Bellevue at 579-0252.

Prime Tarpon Timeby Capt. Matt MitchellThe weeks tarpon fishing brought some good days and some not-so-good days. The one thing that was very consistent was being able to find tarpon every time we fished for them. Being set up in lots of rolling tarpon is always a good thing, and the calm conditions we had most days really helped out when it came to locating them. Pods of happy tarpon could be found anywhere from the beaches through the passes and in all the regular spots in the bay. The best action on my boat came while fishing them in the sound where I was able to set up and fish a full spread of both live baits and cut baits. Some days tarpon eat, then other days they just dont. Thats the only way I can explain it. While tarpon sit in rolling fish in the sound, you can often tell from their behavior when they are happy and content with no real movement almost like they are floating or just milling around. Often you will see free jumps and a few crash baits on the surface. Gulfside tarpon generally seem to have more movement to them. These fish require staying on them and making multiple presentations. This week I was able to return to a few of the same places and pull right up on these fish day after day. Baits that tarpon wanted to eat seemed to almost change by the day. One day, both our bites in the bay came on cut mullet, then the next day both bites came on live crabs drifted under a float. Putting out a variety of baits insured at least you had it covered if they decided they wanted to eat. Even the fish we jumped fought totally differently with one staying close to the boat and making lots of leaps, while the other made crazy long runs that required us to chase it between other boats. We jumped three other tarpon but did not manage to keep them on for very long. The only guarantees when going tarpon fishing is that no two days of tarpon fishing nor any two tarpon battles will ever be the same. As a fishing guide, tarpon fishing is a love-hate relationship. When you have a good day, there is nothing else that compares to it, then there are those days when you can sit in rolling fish and just not get a bite or worse yet not even find the fish. These bad days are as much of a part of tarpon fishing as the days you go out and make memories for a lifetime. Tarpon trips go one of two ways: get that first bite and be a rock star or get no bites and it might as well have been a sightseeing trip. Tarpon fishing is rolling the dice, fortunately the good days stay in your head much longer than the bad days. 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: Bald Eagle Fledgling by Bob PetcherBald eagles ( Haliaeetus leucocephalus ) are known for building the largest tree nests ever recorded for any animal species. Not surprisingly, these homes are very large in order to compensate for the size of the parents and their fast-growing young. By the time eagle chicks are 9 weeks old, they are fully grown. These young reportedly remain in the nest to gain strength for 10 to 12 weeks before flying off. While in those nests, sibling rivalry can get quite competitive as chicks turn into fledglings. Unfortunately, domination can occur when the older eaglet acts aggressively to its younger and smaller brother(s) or sister(s). Sometimes, the nest gets a little small come feeding time. At CROW, a fledgling bald eagle was admitted to the hospital from Fort Myers. The eagle had been observed on the ground without care from its parents for more than 24 hours before it was rescued. The nest was easily visible by people that lived in neighboring houses. It is not uncommon for fledgling eaglets to end up on the ground when they are learning to fly, but they should not stay on the ground for an extended period of time, said Dr. Robin Bast, CROW veterinary intern. The parents were observed in the area interacting with the eaglet; however, there were two other siblings still in the nest and this means competition for resources as well as space in the nest. When the fledgling arrived at the hospital, the intake exam did not reveal any broken bones or injuries. The eagles body condition score was low, indicating it was thin. Blood samples were tested and revealed the bird was also anemic. Dr. Bast confirmed no orthopedic abnormalities were noted. The fledgling was thin and mildly dehydrated, and as a result had a mild anemia low red blood cell count. It was treated supportively with an injection of iron and vitamin B12, and subcutaneous fluid therapy upon admission to the hospital, she said. The next morning, it was moved to an outdoor enclosure and ate readily. It was likely thin because of competition for resources with two other siblings in the nest. Bloodwork was repeated five days after intake, and was within normal limits (thus) anemia resolved. At that time, the eagles weight and body condition had improved with nutritional support. Since there were two other eaglets in the patients nest, CROW veterinarians decided it was best to release the patient once it was fully flighted rather than re-nest it immediately as it may be pushed right back out of the nest by the siblings. Dr. Bast stated that the patient continued its clinic stay in a large flight enclosure and practiced making strong short flights on its own. Siblicide, or death resulting from competition for resources among siblings, is not an uncommon occurrence with eagles, she said. After its second week at CROW, the bald eagle was released near its nest. This fledgling was successfully reunited with its family at the nest site on May 12, after two weeks in hospital, said Dr. Bast. Both parents and both siblings were observed in the nest at the time of release and the next day the eaglet was observed in the nest tree with its siblings.

Shell Of The WeekOrange Hoof Snailby Jos H. Leal, PhD, BaileyMatthews National Shell Museum Science Director and CuratorThe Orange Hoof Snail, Hipponix subrufus (Lamarck, 1822), has a cap-shaped shell that grows up to 12 mm (about 0.5 inch). It has a reticulated sculpture of concentric ridges crossed by radial cords of about the same size. The shell inside has a horseshoe-shaped muscle attachment scar. The shell color is usually light orange-brown. Fresh specimens have a thick, lightbrown periostracum. Hoof snails live attached to hard surfaces and are frequently found on the shells of other mollusks. The shell in the photos was found by Barb Hansen near Gulfside City Park on Sanibel.

The organization partners with local businesses that have pledged to transition away from plastic straws, providing support and guidance throughout the implementation process. Coastal Keepers announced that Casa Ybel Resort, Sundial Beach Resort & Spa, Traders T2 and Lighthouse Caf have recently signed on to participate in the initiative. They join Baileys General Store, Doc Fords Rum Bar & Grill, East End Deli, Sanibel Caf, Sanibel Fresh and The Sanibel Sprout. A representative from each new partner business provided a statement explaining why they made the decision to eliminate plastic straws: We are proud to work with Coastal Keepers to raise awareness of the problems that single-use plastics pose to wildlife, our oceans and beaches. Froilan Ramirez, Jr., Casa Ybel Resort Sundial Beach Resort & Spa is dedicated to conserving and protecting this beautiful island that we call home. The resort has been a Florida Department of Environmental Protection designated Florida Green Lodging property for some time now and Coastal Keepers Strawless on Sanibel aligns with our commitment to protect our natural resources and wildlife. In evaluating our operations, we continuously look for ways to improve our environmental performance and reducing beach litter through the strawless initiative is a simple way to make a big impact. Phillip Starling, Sundial Beach Resort & Spa When we opened Traders T2 at the Village Shops on Sanibel, it was the perfect opportunity to become more environmentally responsible and use paper straws. Roseanne Giordani, Traders T2 As a lifelong citizen of Sanibel who was raised to appreciate and protect wildlife, I recognize the dangers of some of the previously accepted practices that in fact endanger wildlife and pollute our environment. I am in favor of any reasonable legislation that protects against harm to wildlife and the environment. Michael Billheimer, Lighthouse Caf We hope that community members will thank our participating businesses for their environmental leadership on Sanibel Island, said project coordinator Sam Lucas. More information is available on the Coastal Keepers website for those who are interested. Coastal Keepers, formerly the SanibelCaptiva Chapter of START, creates and implements local conservation initiatives that promote and improve the future of marine resources and coastal heritage.

ISLAND SUN MAY 18, 201822 rfnf nrtbf frf nf frr nfnfr r Performance In Boards And Kayaksby Ocean Tribe PaddlersRecently, we were asked by a paddleboard shopper about the performance of two different boards. Its a great question to ask, but a very hard one to answer, and it applies to both kayaks and boards. Typically when we ask about perfor mance, we are thinking about speed, but most of us dont necessarily want to go fast across the ocean. However, vessels capable of speed are usually also capable of covering more distance per unit effort and efficiency is something most of us are looking for. The general rule is that the longer and narrower the vessel, the faster it will be. But, we trade stability for speed. You can have stable or fast, but not usually both in one vessel. On paddleboards, displacement noses those where the front of the board looks like a canoe more than a surfboard are typically designed for speed. The displace ment nose helps hold a straighter course and thus you will travel farther with each paddle stroke. We could talk about performance for a long time, but our answer to her question was an invitation to come out with us and test the two boards, to decide which one feels the best. She took us up on our offer, and very quickly picked her favorite. It is amazing how different two boards can feel on the water. Paddling is a sport we can enjoy for years and years. In that time, many of us will change the equipment we use as our skills and desires change. Always ask for a demonstration of the boards or kayaks you are interested in buying. Good paddle outfitters are more than happy to provide a demo session, and you will very quickly find the vessel that is right for you at your stage in the sport. With luck, you will paddle for a long time, aboard many different vessels. But in the beginning, the vessel that feels the best usually is. Happy paddling. Ocean Tribe Paddlers is a club that helps the Southwest Florida paddling community better explore, enjoy and understand the ocean.

Refuge Leads Island In Just Water MovementMove over bottled water! Theres a new drink in town, and its helping to save the earth and its creatures. Seven years ago, the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge led the island movement to kick the bottle. In 2011, the Ding Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge (DDWS) made the economically unsound decision to stop selling bottled water in its Ding Darling Nature Store. The decision cost the store thousands in annual revenues. Instead, the store began selling reusable Kick the Bottle containers at cost. The refuge installed a filtered water refill station for filling the containers, and Tarpon Bay Explorers the refuges recreation concessionaire followed suit. It wasnt a perfect solution, but it was the best one available at the time, said DDWS Executive Director Birgie Miller, who oversaw the switch. The reusable bottles were still made of plastic, which uses unsustainable and earth-unfriendly petroleum to produce. Plus, they were flimsy and difficult to clean. Earlier this year, Miller and her staff discovered Just Water, a start-up business by an eco-conscious group that includes actor Will Smith. Its container consists of 82 percent renewable resources, primarily paperboard sourced from forests where new trees replace those harvested. The cap and shoulder components are derived from sugarcane, a renewable resource. The materials represent a 47 to 74 percent reductioncontinued on page 25 Visitors can now purchase chilled, ecofriendly Just Water in the Refuge Nature Store photo provided All events held at American Legion Post 123 4249 San-Cap Road (Mile Marker 3), Sanibel, Florida For Details Call 472-9979 10th Annual Sunday, May 27thOpening Ceremonies @ High Noon Food and Fun For All Ages( Bring the whole family ) Cornhole Tournament All Day(singles/doubles)1pm-?

They also caught a 31inch redfish with guide Nick Fischer. Maria Caldwell photos provided Harry Caldwell Fish Caught Luke Mancuso caught a 27-inch redfish on May 6 near Matlacha. He was using a Rapala twitching mullet around sundown while kayaking. Mancuso released this fish even though it was slot size. He said, It was such a beautiful fish, and its a species that is often taken for food. I felt bad for this guy being so close to over slot size; he lived another day. I think more people should practice catch and release with redfish as it is such an important species for local charter captains, and therefore the local economy. Without these fish, Sanibel and the whole Pine Island area would be missing a vital piece of its natural history, and wildlife. Luke Mancuso photo provided Fish Caught

With Nealons generosity, and the support of Broadway Palm and the community, 100 percent of the event proceeds will benefit Hope Hospice. My first experience with Hope was about 20 years ago when my grandmother was cared for in Fort Myers. I was beyond grateful for the love, compassion and comfort that was shown to her, and to the rest of my family as well, said Nealon. Doctors, nurses, support staff and volunteers all brought comfort to my family at a crucial time when we really needed it. Im honored for this opportunity to support Hope in its mission to help others in Southwest Florida in the same caring, kind and loving way they helped my family. Nealon stars in CBSs Man with a Plan and recently starred in Weeds on Showtime. He has appeared in several movies, including Happy Gilmore and The Wedding Singer Kevin has been a longtime friend of Hope Hospice, and we are truly grateful that he will share his time and talent to help people during a most critical time of life, said Samira K. Beckwith, president and CEO of Hope Healthcare. With changes in healthcare regulations and reimbursement, we need community support now more than ever to continue the promise of Hope and meet our communitys needs. Dinner begins at 5:30 p.m., followed by a 7:30 p.m. show.

Call Madeline for Reservations From page 22Just Waterin greenhouse gas emission compared to PET plastic bottles. The sturdy container stands up to repeated use, and its wide mouth makes it easy to clean. Already weve received calls from various island businesses and organizations interested in carrying Just Water, said Miller. Among those making the change have been The Sanctuary Health & Wellness Center, CROW, Captiva Cruises, Cast About Charters and Adventures in Paradise. For the Ding Darling store, which sells chilled Just Water for $2 a bottle, the reward also comes in sales proceeds to benefit refuge research and education programs. In sales, the Just Water has proven 2.5 times more popular than the previous green Kick the Bottles. Again, its not a perfect product, but again, we are at the cutting edge of responsible merchandising, added Miller. Plastic is taking over our world with toxic effect on wildlife and humans alike. We are always looking for ways to improve our carbon footprint and are proud to lead by example. Thanks to DDWS efforts, the refuge has, through the years, eliminated plastic shopping bags in the store and has transitioned to compostable plates, cups and flatware for event use. Plastic straws have been eliminated.

Over the past few years, and as the popularity of kale has gr own, I have a new-found respect for this marvel ous vegetable. Kale, also known as leaf cabbage, is a Brassica and dates back over 2,000 years. Brassica are members of the cruciferous vegetable or mustard family, which include cabbages, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, rutabaga and turnips. Kale was widely used by the Greeks and Romans strictly for medicinal purposes. It became very popular in Western Europe around the middle ages and was brought to North America during the 16th century by colonists. It became part of the European diet during World War II because it was easy to grow and could withstand cold temperatures. There are many different types of kale and ornamental kale (which is edible). Most varieties prefer colder climates, however; there are varieties that are grown in warm climates such as Florida and California. California is the largest producer of kale in North America. Love it or hate it, kale is really good for you. Kale has over 15 percent of your recommended daily allowance of calcium (thats more than a glass of milk), almost 700 percent of vitamin A, 900 percent of vitamin K and more vitamin C than an orange. Cooking doesnt diminish most of the nutritional value of this vegetable and that makes it a wonderful addition to your diet. If you dont like kale or you have only eaten it raw, try this simple recipe and tell me what you think. Kale and Mushroom Lasagna Ingredients 12 ozs. curly kale or cavolo nero 2 tblsp. butter 1 pound of crimini mushrooms (sliced thin) 2 cloves garlic (minced) 3 sprigs of thyme 1 box of lasagna noodles 2 tblsp. parmesan cheese 1 cup of low fat ricotta 6 ozs. low fat mozzarella cheese 1 egg Sea salt For the sauce: 3 cups milk 1 bay leaf 1 onion (roughly chopped) 1 stick of celery (roughly chopped) Black peppercorns cup butter cup flour 2 tsp. Dijon Pinch nutmeg Method Preheat oven to 375F Cut kale into small pieces and blanch until tender, then cool. Place the butter in a saucepan on low heat, add mushrooms, garlic and thyme. Cook until mushrooms release all their liquid and set aside. Cook lasagna noodles in boiling salted water until al dente, then chill in ice water and pat dry with a paper towel. Place the ricotta, mozzarella and egg in a mixing bowl. Blend until smooth, then set aside. In a saucepan over medium heat, add the milk, bay leaf, onion, celery and peppercorns. Bring milk to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 3 minutes. In a separate pan on low heat, melt the butter until it starts to brown. Add the flour and stir for 3 minutes. Add the flour mixture to the milk and simmer until the liquid begins to thicken. Remove from heat and season with Dijon and nutmeg. Place a lasagna noodle flat on a cutting board. Spread the cheese mixture on the noodle, followed by the kale and then mushrooms. Gently roll the noodle and place in a baking tray. Continue the same process until all noodles are used. Pour the sauce over the lasagna noodles and bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Remove from oven and cool slightly. Serve with a side salad.

ISLAND SUN MAY 18, 201830 SUN Book ReviewThe Selfish Path To Romance by Di SaggauThe Selfish Path to Romance, How to Love with Passion and Reason by Psychologists Edwin A. Locke and Ellen Kenner is inspired by the ideas of novelist and philosopher Ayn Rand. Rand wrote, It is ones own personal, selfish happiness that one seeks, earns, and derives from love. Locke and Kenner were inspired to build on Rands understanding that love depends on reason, egoism, introspection and moral character. Their book offers a mindful, rational alternative for anyone serious about finding and sustaining a lifetime romance. Kenner, who lives on Sanibel told me, As a clinical psychologist, the most common complaint Ive heard, over the years, from couples is along the lines of: Ive lost myself in this relationship, Its all about his (or her) friends, work, family, kids, golf, other sports. I feel left out, invisible. And I typically cater to his (or her) choices. I feel guilty when I try to stand up for myself. And when I get the courage to speak up, I am so frustrated or angry, that it doesnt go well. She said, Passive-aggressive tactics backfire and typically, although not always, I hear: Its all about sex, his way. Ive lost me. The theme of our book is you never want to betray yourself in a romantic partnership. That applies for both partners. Being true to yourself and lovingly honest with your partner is not easy. There are many internal pressures to say, Whatever you want, dear. It really doesnt matter to me, with the cost of festering resentment. Kenner further said, The book addresses how to remain true to yourself, communicate lovingly and learn to compromise well so that you dont end up seeing your partner as the enemy. Even before that: How do you make yourself lovable? She said the word Selfish in the title doesnt mean the my-way-or-the highway, narcissistic, manipulative way to romance. Rather, by Selfish we mean the self-respecting, self-nurturing, self-valuing, self-esteem way to romance for both partners. Then there is no festering resentment, resentment which leads to unhappy long-term marriages or to painful acrimonious divorces. My co-author and I deliberately chose that word to underscore the need to value yourself in any partnership, or more broadly, in any relationship. Never selfbetray. It is such an achievement to be your own best friend with your partner as your highest social value. The Selfish Path To Romance; How to Love with Passion and Reason is a thought-provoking and objective guide to finding and nurturing romantic relationships. School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley,My 6-year-old son is having trouble following directions both at home and at school. His teacher and I are very frustrated. Please give me some ways to help him follow directions better, and I will share them with his teacher. If we both do the same thing it might help. Caitlin B, Fort Myers Caitlin, There are many, many reasons why kids dont follow directions: they didnt hear you; they dont remember what you have asked; they dont understand what you have asked; they are being; they may have learning and attention issues; and the list goes on. However, you owe it to your kids to give directions as clearly as possible and give them an opportunity to understand both your expectations and requests. Learning to follow directions is a critical life skill and, as a parent, this is a skill you will need to work on with your child often so they understand how important it is. Here are some suggestions to help you give directions successfully: Ask for his attention before giving a direction Minimize background distractions (ie television, computer) Ask if he understands the direction by asking them to repeat what you have requested Speak quietly using a soft firm voice dont try to shout over the noise Wait 5 to 8 seconds before repeating the direction give your child time to process Rephrase the question at least one time to help your child comprehend before letting emotions take over Itemize and number complex instructions to a maximum of three steps. Its easier to remember multi-step directions when they are given in a sequential order Be specific with your language and what you are requesting. State your expectation precisely If possible use a visual cue especially with children that have language, attention and auditory processing difficulties. Picture schedules, cards and prompts are very helpful for children who struggle with language and attention.

ISLAND SUN MAY 18, 201834 Providing Custom Interiors to Sanibel & Captiva for 28 years Complimentary In-Home Consultation695 Tarpon Bay Rd. Sanibel, FL 33957 coin.decoratingden.com 239.472.6551 The Sanibel Captiva Trust CompanyPortfolio Review And Strategy by Craig Holston, Chief Operating OfficerGlobal stock markets moved modestly higher during the first quarter of 2018. For the first time in more than a year, day-to-day stock market volatility has returned to historically normal levels. Last year was unusually calm as markets moved steadily higher throughout most of 2017 with minimal interruption. In fact, 2017 was the least volatile stock market year since the CBOEs Volatility Index (VIX) was established in the early 1990s.* With that context, we view recent stock market movements as rather normal. We encourage our clients to avoid focusing on the short-term market noise and instead look to the fundamentals of the economy and the companies we follow. From our perspective, corporate earnings were quite strong in the fourth quarter of 2017, which portends well for this year and next, particularly when you factor in the tailwind of corporate tax reform. On March 21, the Federal Reserve Board announced their decision to raise the federal funds rate by another 0.25 percent. The Fed will also continue to reduce the size of their balance sheet by letting Treasury and mortgage-backed securities mature over the next few years. This was largely anticipated by most market participants. Nonetheless, it is another signal that monetary tightening clearly is occurring. Other broad market interest rates have responded this year by moving higher. In the near term, higher interest rates will put price pressures on dividend-paying companies as the relative value between incomeproducing stocks and bonds readjusts. Though we continue to view higher interest rates as a symptom of a positive overall economy, we will continue to watch the shape of the yield curve. An inverted (negative sloping) yield curve generally portends poorly for economic activity. We have seen some flattening in the curve over the past year as short-term interest rates have risen faster than long-term rates. For the first time in years, bond investors are starting to feel the impacts of higher interest rates. Bond prices have moved lower in 2018, and that will continue as long as interest rates continue to move higher. The biggest impact will be felt by investors holding long-term bonds an asset class we have avoided for years. Short-term bonds will also be impacted, but to a much lesser extent. Our investment team is watching these movements closely and will continue to evaluate the relative value between stocks and bonds as interest rates move higher. For the time being, we believe we are still a long way away from bonds being as attractive as stocks on a risk-adjusted basis. However, as rates rise, our willingness to use bonds in a more meaningful way across client accounts will increase. *The CBOE Volatility Index (VIX Index) is a leading measure of market expectations of near-term volatility conveyed by S&P 500 Index (SPX) option prices.

ISLAND SUN MAY 18, 201836 Phone: (239)489.0442 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org www.gregweglarz.comState Certi ed General Contractor License # CGC A05420One Builder Serving Sanibel & Captiva for over 35 years Custom Residential Construction Remodeling Projects Design Team with Construction Drawings Plans Through Completion of Project Rotary Happeningssubmitted by Shirley JewellMark Thomas, golf course superinten dent at Kelly Greens Golf & Country Club was Sanibel-Captiva Rotarys guest speaker on May 4. Kelly Greens Golf & Country Club is a private community with a 29-tee driving range and 18 regulation holes, located just over the Sanibel Causeway along Summerlin Road in Fort Myers. Thomas was invited by club Rotarian John Schwandke, who lives at Kelly Greens. Schwandke thought it would be interesting for Rotarians to gain insight into the planning that went into a major golf course renovation. A recent rebuild of the Kelly Greens golf course took nine months at a cost of nearly $4 million and was completed in 2017. Planning time started well in advance of the physical work, with studies conducted on numerous areas in need of improve ment. Both club members and outside experts wer e involved in analyzing the situation and bringing forth major correc tive and creative ways to not only solve the physical pr oblems on the golf course, but planning for creating a challenging course. Thomas said, Most important was a feasibility study including the projects physical elements land area, topography, soils, geology, vegetation, drainage and water availability. A master plan was then developed with elements that determined a new course design by golf course architect Gordon Lewis. The working team on a mission like this usually involves a land planner, building architect, civil engineer, irrigation designer, landscape architect, ecologist, planning consultant, contractors and workers in many different areas. It is important to have a team that communicates well. Thomas said a lot of talking went on before the project got started. He and others involved with the project made work site visits to a couple of companies under consideration for elements of the project. Always mindful of the intended outcome of the project, Thomas did a lot of communi cating on ideas, exploring and negotiating with the contractors for the best outcome and best price in the timeliest manner. Thomas gives credit to the in-house Kelly Greens staff for working so conscientiously alongside of him on this project, especially naming Director of Golf Charlie Vetter. There was another decision Thomas and the board of directors made before this project began. The club did not want to let any of the groundskeeping staff go during this rebuild, so they assigned the task of re moving, repositioning and replanting of all the tr ees on the Kelly Greens Golf course all 800 of them. Employee involvement on a project such as this helps everyone on staff understand the magnitude of the project and how important that individual contributions make to the outcome. After collecting all the information concerning the renovation of the golf courses at Kelly Greens, the feasibility report and cost portfolio was presented to and approved by the clubs membership. On April 4, 2016, the work began by spraying the course to kill off all vegeta tion, followed by rototilling and scraping of all dead matter off the land. T rees that had to be removed were saved. Dirt was moved around, new design features where added and an old design flaw was corrected by providing more space between holes for a safer course. New bunkers were added throughout the course. Lake surrounds were steep and maintenance of slope vegetation was almost impossible to maintain, so this was addressed with the new landscape design. A four-inch layer of gravel was spread throughout the course, as well as 12 inches of greens mix topsoil by TIF Eagle, adhering to USGA standards. Tee boxes were redesigned and positioned for a new course of play. A new irrigation system was installed, making an impressive change to the greens and fairways. Now on to the lakes. Enhancing most golf courses are beautiful lakes and water features. They are not only aesthetically pleasing but provide a significant habitat for wildlife. Here are some facts about the Kelly Greens aquatic systems from Aquatic Systems Lake and Wetland Services: Kelly Greens has 18 restored lakes/ponds and two wetland areas; They removed decayed matter from the lakes and added 35,000 native bluegill and redear sunfish to reduce midge fly larvae; 100,000 native plants covering five acres along 20,000 linear feet of shoreline were planted by Shoreline Littoral Planting; Custom lake aeration systems were installed in all 18 ponds; Alum was applied in January of 2017 to all 18 ponds to quickly reduce phosphorus levels following completion of the golf course renovation. The Kelly Greens Golf Course is noted not only for its beauty but for its unmatched challenging play. This course is Audubon Certified and during construction, placed great emphasis on creating an environmentally safe golf course for its membership and guests. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets Friday mornings at 7 a.m. at The Dunes Golf & Tennis Club. Guests are welcome.

John Nicholson Jason Lomano ISLAND SUN BUSINESS NEWSMAKERS McMurray and Nette Cindy Sitton Tracy WaltersSpeaker Addresses Identity TheftSanibel & Captiva Islands Chamber of Commerce business members learned several ways to protect their identity and defend against frauds, scams and cons from Lee County Sheriffs Office Crime Prevention Specialist Peggy Lince, who spoke at the monthly luncheon hosted by Blue Coyote Supper Club. Be careful of the information you give out, she said. You never know who will use it to commit fraud or theft. Before you reveal any personal information, ask how it will be used, and will it be shared, Lince said. You should also pay attention to your credit report by ordering a copy from each of the three major companies at separate times. Just always be cautious. Frauds, scams and cons occur several ways, but the most common schemes include IRS frauds and scams, home improvement frauds, fake contests, social media and grandparent scams. While a con artist can be difficult to spot by looks alone, there are key words to be aware of: cash only, debt collector for items ordered by a deceased spouse or relative, good deals and last chance. While seniors are at risk, its the Millenials who have become targets because they are known to be online and sloppy with their information, said Lince. The information may not be used immediately, but rather saved for when they are near or at retirement. For more information on the Crime Prevention Unit of LCSO, call 2583280 to talk with a specialist. The next business luncheon will be held on Tuesday, June 12 at 11:30 a.m. at Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort & Spa. Pamela Johnson of Lee County Economic Development will be the guest speaker.

ISLAND SUN MAY 18, 201840 You get a fascinating perspective serving as estate planning counsel for 29 years, as I have. You get to see people make major transformations, and then eventually transition into a place that theyre not quite sure how to act namely their retirement years. I represent retired physicians, attorneys, CPAs, business owners and executives of publicly traded institutions, among others. When these individuals first retire, they are excited to exit the busy world that wore them down over the years. Some choose to slow down, golf, play bridge, travel and enjoy themselves. I dont begrudge them at all. Theyve certainly earned it. But theres something else that Ive noticed. When a hard-charging, ambitious, determined individual suddenly has nothing to do, things seem to change. After enjoying a sabbatical of several months, they dont seem to know what to do with themselves. Thats when it gets interesting. Some will become consultants, an occupation that allows them to pick and choose the work they get involved in, while others dive into philanthropy and charitable causes. Some vigorously pursue hobbies left neglected over the years, while many spend more time with their grandchildren than they were ever capable of spending with their children. Some, however, seem to run out of future. When this happens, a noticeable change occurs. Health often declines, as does mental acuity. They dont seem to enjoy life as much anymore. They havent found a new purpose that engages them. I believe that if you take a look at four freedoms that everyone wants to achieve, no matter the age, it becomes easier to never run out of future. These are the freedoms of time, money, relationship and purpose. The first is freedom of time. There are two aspects to each freedom. Freedom from and freedom to. Retirees are free from the day-to-day grind that consumed their lives for many decades. Now they are free to engage in those activities that they enjoy doing. Those retirees fortunate enough to maintain good health dont spend a great deal of time in doctors offices, instead, they are able to choose to take the time in those activities that they find motivating. The next freedom is that of money. Most of the retirees that I encounter have done a good job of saving, and therefore have the freedom from obligations such as mortgages or those found when raising a family. I have three daughters, one who just graduated with her masters degree, another who is going to enter professional/graduate school in the coming year, and a third beginning her college career this fall. Im looking forward one day to being free from college tuition expenses! Most of those a couple of decades older than I are free of those types of expenses. The retirees I work with also have a freedom to spend their money on those things that provide fulfillment and energize them. Some choose to go back to school simply for educations sake. Others like to travel, become philanthropic or enjoy helping their children and grandchildren with lifes expenses. Once you gain freedoms of time and money, that opens the possibility of freedom of relationship. Again, we can be from those relationships that we find toxic or exhausting and can enter relationships that we find satisfying, loving and supportive. Finally, there is the freedom of purpose. This is the highest freedom that can only be obtained once weve achieved the other three freedoms. Here we find our meaning. Our why. It can mean many different things to many different people. When we consider our freedoms in this fashion, its impossible to run out of future no matter our age. If you find yourself stuck in a routine that you cant seem to break out of, I suggest that you consider these four freedoms, and what you want to be free from and free to do. That might just be the thought process that begins an entirely new and exciting chapter in your life. Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at www.sbshlaw.com.

41 ISLAND SUN MAY 18, 2018 Superior InteriorsHow Can An Interior Decorator Help?by Barb CacchioneOne of the most frequent phone calls that I get is from people who first outline a decorating challenge or need that theyre experiencing and follow up with a question, Is that something you can do? It seems that people are often unsure of just what an interior decorator can do for them and are intimidated about requesting their services. Its not uncommon for people to express anxiety that a decorator will be too pushy, too artsy, or just too expensive. The reality is that a good decorator can save you money, time and headaches by making wise recommendations, avoid expensive mistakes and take care of all the details that are necessary to achieve a beautiful result. When beginning your search for an interior decorator, ask friends or contractors who have worked with them for referrals. When you meet with the decorator ask about their work style, how they charge for products and services, and if they specialize in any decorating style. In preparation for working with a decorator, you will need to do a bit of work so that the result will be tailored to your needs. Make a list of what you see as your needs, likes and dislikes. If possible, create a file containing pictures of items that appeal to you. In addition, couples should talk with each other about how their expectations are alike or different. Prior to beginning the actual work on your decorating project, it is critically important to decide on a budget range that you are comfortable with. Defining the budget early on will make the time you spend with your decorator more productive and result in the best design within the price range that is within your comfort zone. Once you have established your relationship with the designer and the budget, the design process should take place in your home. It is critically important that the design decisions be made in your homes lighting alongside the things that are already in place that will not be changed. You need to expect that your decorator will gather the pertinent information, develop a design plan, present it, hone it and help you through the decision-making process. Once decided upon, she will do the necessary legwork, measurements, place orders and see the project through to completion, leaving you to relax and enjoy the beautiful results. Barb Cacchione is an interior designer on Sanibel/Captiva Islands. She can be reached at barb@ coindecden.com New Trustee Joins Sea SchoolSanibel Sea School has added Christine Szymanczyk to the nonprofit organizations board of trustees. Szymanczyk grew up near Lake Michigan in the northern suburbs of Chicago, and has been visiting Southwest Florida since she was a child, when her grandparents moved to Naples. After graduating from Vanderbilt University, she spent time traveling and studying in Australia before earning a masters degree in education at the University of Indiana. After graduate school, Szymanczyk was selected as a Fulbright Scholar and moved to Argentina to teach English at the Universidad de Villa Mara. She returned to the United States and taught high school Spanish for a number of years before she decided to move to Sanibel with her husband, Kyle, and their two active little boys. Kyles family has been involved with Sanibel Sea School for many years, and after getting to know the organization through the eyes of my oldest son, I am honored to join the board, Szymanczyk said. Sanibel Sea School blends my love of the water, education and conservation.

43 ISLAND SUN MAY 18, 2018 Score Under AgeJack Tukey shot a round of golf under his age at Sanibel Island Golf Club on May 12. Jack Tukey photo providedThe Face Of A FISH VolunteerFISH of SanCap volunteers are the heroes who achieve remarkable accomplishments every day. Volunteers have a real impact on the lives of island neighbors and help to make the community stronger. Pat Boris, FISH volunteer, joined the team about 14 years ago after a long career in health care. My greatest joy is helping people stay healthy and that is what brought me to FISH, to provide help at the simplest level; food, healthy safe homes, connecting to resources, Boris said. She added, Most volunteers start as part time islanders snowbirds as I did. I collected food, added FISH to our church mission outreach, posted pictures of our empty pantry, and helped spread the word. I worked at the front desk, meeting clients coming in wide-eyed for their first visit to the food pantry. They often apologized for a lost job, an inadequate job, an ill child, or life circumstances. I am always proud to say, this is why FISH is here, to help. I got involved with home safety, especially with frail elderly. Together with FISH social workers, I developed an assessment tool to use at-home visits that dovetailed with FISH services. On our islands, many elders are alone, maybe after losing a mate, not wanting to impose on friends or neighbors, or even family. Sometimes they had no food in the house because they can no longer drive to the grocery store. Maybe there is mental confusion or falling issues. Whatever is discovered because of a home visit, FISH has the resources to help. Theres no judgement, no shame. We are just neighbors helping neighbors. I have delivered meals and equipment, and I have visited many of those same folks for the hurricane preparedness program, currently under way. Each encounter is well planned and personal, whether meals, equipment, hurricane, food pantry or other. Hundreds of hours are spent checking and rechecking details. There are phone calls, logs, hours and miles to track. Its never troublesome, its a labor of love. With FISH, I found an amazing community of service. Maggi Feiner is always a step ahead, ready as the number one volunteer. The culture of giving in the FISH office rubs off. Some of these needing help also give back when they can. One woman brings banana bread to the staff, another brings cookies. The mission of FISH has never gotten tired. Every volunteer finds their niche, a place of joyful service, and completes their tasks with enthusiasm and compassion, serving the clients in a dignified and humane manner. I hope I have many more years to devote to FISH. Ive watched it grow and change, but it always strives to meet the needs of people who come. There are always opportunities to become involved with FISH of SanCap. With so many possibilities, everyone can find a good fit. If you are interested in volunteering with this unique organization, contact Lyn Kern, office and volunteer manager, at 472-4775. For more information, visit www. fishofsancap.org.

Florida Baseball Teams Near Bottom In Attendance Year After Yearby Ed FrankYouve just got to wonder if Major League Baseball is suited for the State of Florida. Sure, spring training draws big, often record crowds, by the 15 teams that train in this state. But when it comes to the regular season, the Miami Marlins and the Tampa Bay Rays rank at the very bottom in Major League attendance year after year. Through the first 29 home games this season, Tampa Bay averaged just 14,710 fans per game, ranking 29th. Miami was 30th, at the very bottom, with 10,877 fans per game through the first 30 games. The issue came to light last week when former Rays All-Star third-baseman Evan Longoria, now with the San Francisco Giants, said the time may have arrived to consider relocating Tampa Bay. The Rays have searched and worked tirelessly to move the team from St. Petersburg and building a new stadium in Tampa without success. But Longoria told the Tampa Bay Times, this may not be the best option. Honestly, and this is maybe not something I should say, but my gut tells me that the best decision might be to move the team. I look at the example of the Miami Marlins and a new stadium didnt really solve their attendance issues. He pointed out that the Tampa area has not supported the team even when it was playing winning baseball. Its a selfish thing to say probably as a player, but I dont know, does anyone really want to play in front of 10,000 fans a night? Just compare Tampas average attendance of 14,710 fans per game to the Los Angeles Dodgers at 46,633, the Boston Red Sox at 33,271 and Minnesota at 20,395. And, many of the Red Sox and Twins early season games have been played in cold, bitter, even snowy weather. Professional football, basketball and hockey in Florida, however, are a different story. Miami ranks 16th in the NFL in attendance averaging 67,627 fans last season, and Jacksonville ranked 21st with 64,308 average attendance. The Miami Heat averages 19, 631 fans per game, sixth best in the NBA, and Tampa Bay also is sixth best in the National Hockey League with 19,092 fans per game. Even locally, the Florida Everblades hockey team averages more than 6,500 fans each game in 7,200-seat Germain Arena, one of the top teams in the ECHL. So, do you get the point? Maybe the Rays ownership and Major League Baseball should consider Longorias advice. It pains me to write that perhaps the time has come to find a new home in another state for the Tampa Bay Rays. Everblades Split First Two Games In Conference Finals The Florida Everblades split the first two games with the Adirondack Thunder last weekend at Germain Arena in the best-of-seven conference finals of the ECHL. Florida skated to a 4-2 victory in Game One, but lost an overtime tussle in Game Two, 3-2. The series moved to Adirondacks home ice in the Cool Insuring Arena in Glen Falls, New York for Games Three, Four and Five that started Wednesday and will continue tonight, Friday and Saturday nights. If Games Six and Seven are necessary, they will be held here in Germain Arena next Monday and Wednesday nights at 7:30 p.m. SUN ISLAND SUN MAY 18, 201844 SPORTS QUIZ 1.

45 ISLAND SUN MAY 18, 2018Sanibel Teen Among Nations Top Athletes by Jeff LysiakJacob Lemmon grew up on Sanibel loving sports. As a youngster, he played baseball, football, basketball, soccer and golf while attending The Sanibel School. In his spare time, he enjoys fishing, biking and working out. No matter the sport, he was always considered gifted athletically. Ive always had a tough time if I have to sit for awhile, said Lemmon, now 17. I think exercising is fun, which keeps me pretty active. And as an athlete, you always have to strive for something. Sports is very goal-oriented. Now a junior at Fort Myers High School, Lemmon has competed on the schools track and field team for the past three years. I started out doing pole vault when I was a freshman, he said, noting that at the time, he tipped the scales at 140 pounds. But I kept growing and gaining weight, and they didnt have a pole that was long enough for me. I cant do that any more. Undaunted, Lemmon turned his attention towards both the discus and shot put. And while he has carved out a formidable reputation as a shot-putter, he truly found his niche competing in discus. Currently, the teen is the top ranked high school discus thrower in the state of Florida. In the last competition (the Florida High School Athletic Associations 3A State Track & Field Championships, held on May 5), I almost broke 200 feet, said Lemmon, whose exact discus distance measured 196 feet, 4.75 inches. Not too many people can throw (a discus equal to) their body weight. In his first year of competing in discus, Lemmon placed 20th in the conference championships. But by his sophomore season, he won the conference title while placing 12th in the state. At this years Lee County Athletic Conference Championship, Lemmon topped the competition with a toss of 183 feet, eight inches. I won the conference meet by 50 feet, then I won the states by 14 feet, he said, noting that earlier in the season, at the Florida State University Relays, held on March 24, he set the meet record with a toss spanning 193 feet, three inches. Lemmon was recently ranked as the number one high school discus competitor in Florida, and number three in the nation (behind fellow athletes from Oklahoma and Massachusetts). Heading into his senior season, which he will compete for in his new home of Leesburg, Virginia, Lemmon is looking forward to advancing his skills as a track and field athlete. Ill definitely be competing in college, added Lemmon, who is considering several schools including Stanford University, Auburn University, the University of Virginia and the University of North Carolina, among others. This summer, Ill be competing in the New Balance Nationals up in Greensboro, North Carolina. And in the future, Id like to see myself making Team USA (in the Summer Olympics). I just have to keep working hard. Is your Estate Plan providing you COMFORT, CONFIDENCE & CLARITY?

Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: I have been married for 25 years, and my husband recently left me for a younger woman. I am devastated, and I know I need help. I cannot believe this is happening. What emotions can I expect as I go through this loss and for how long?A: First, you are aware that you need to seek help. I recommend you seek help from a trusted professional as soon as possible as you mentioned. Betrayal is considered one of the most devastating losses one can go through. It is necessary for you to understand the process of grief when having been betrayed. Often when one has been betrayed, there are over whelming emotions that are so intense, it is difficult to make any sense of them. It is helpful to understand what these emotions are and why you are experiencing them before you can take any action. Grief involves stages one goes through: shock/denial, anger, depression, bargain ing, sadness and acceptance. These stages come and go in waves and tend to overlap. One may be experienced more intensely than another at times. There is no good, bad, right or wrong way to grieve. Its a process that is very individualized. Some people may feel stuck in one stage that prevents them from moving on. Its helpful to work with a professional to move through the stages. Most commonly, people want to avoid the grief experience because the emotions can be so intense. Its common to engage in avoidance behaviors. Avoidance is the number one coping technique. Anger is a common stage where people become stuck, especially when the issue of betrayal is in the anger stage. They become so focused on the wrong that was done to them that they never really fully experience the other emotions, such as the sadness due to the loss of the relationship. Other times, people become stuck in the denial stage by becoming focused on forgiveness. They are so quick to want to resolve the issue that they deny the full experiences of the anger and sadness involved in the loss. The following will assist you with the grief process: Denial/Shock The initial stage of shock or denial is when you are initially confronted with the betrayal. You may feel numb or as though you were hit with a two-by-four. This stage can be fairly short especially if the individual acknowledges the betrayal. It may be longer if someone has an issue with feeling anger. They might want to try and dismiss the seriousness of the transgression or try to focus too quickly on forgiving the transgressor, in this situation, your husband. Anger Once the betrayal and loss is fully acknowledged, the individual is likely to feel intense anger. This is a very delicate stage because this is when many things can go wrong in the process. First, it is important to realize the emotion of anger is okay. However, actions that are influenced by anger may not be accept able. For many, when they are initially hurt and r eact with anger, their inclination is to retaliate and hurt the betrayer who hurt them. Its natural to feel anger and realize that hurt lies beneath the anger. Its okay to let the person who hurt you know your feelings and that you need space to process your emotions. Venting Emotions The betrayed person needs to vent. Try to avoid venting to the person who has hurt you. Chances are the betrayer will react defensively which will only lead to your escalating anger. Its also best to talk with an un biased yet trusted person who will listen and understand. If that is not possible, a minister or therapist can help you through this process. Write grief letters Another way to vent is to write about your feelings. It can be a very cathartic exercise and can help with purging without going to the betrayer. Its a way to vent without misplacing your anger as that can lead to displacing your anger to others who have not done anything to hurt you. You never want to violate anyone else. If you need a physical anger release, that is fine as long as it is in a healthy way. You can go for a run, hit a punching bag, play golf or tennis. A physical outlet that is safe can help you feel better. As you work through your anger, you will begin to come to a point. Sadness It is a recognition of what you have lost to its fullest extent. You begin to think about the good things in the relationship that you miss. You realize the shattered trust and know you can never regain that complete trust again. Once someone has violated our trust, we can get to a point where we may be able to continue the relationship with them, yet knowing forever that they have the capac ity to violate that trust and betray us again. During the time of sadness, its important to release the emotions just as releasing the anger. Again, you can write your feelings, and I suggest keeping a journal. You can also imagine telling the person who hurt you how you feel without holding back and the loss of the relationship that grieves you. Of course, its okay to cry. Crying is a part of grief and its healing. Acceptance Be mindful that the grief process is a healing process and there is no magical time this will end. It is very individualized. It was built into our systems to help us cope with the numerous losses we experience in life. If we trust the process fully, we will heal. This means allowing the feelings to be what they are, no judgments, no criticisms. If you learn to trust this healing process, you will at some point get to acceptance. Be patient with yourself and release any self-blame. This is a time where decisions can be made and action can be taken. It is your decision if your husband can lead to more hurt and is not worth it to you to sustain the relation ship, or you may decide that there is more good in the r elationship to you to let it go. Whatever you decide, take extreme care of yourself and seek all the support you need for as long as you need it.

Doctor and DieticianReduce Breast Cancer Riskby Ross Hauser, MD and Marion Hauser, MS, RDDid you know one of the risk factors for breast cancer is being a woman over age 50? Two out of three invasive breast cancers are found in women age 55 and older, and 97 percent of cancer deaths occur in women over age 40. Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in women, making it a significant health problem. Is there anything you can do to reduce your risk? Obtain regular screening, as breast cancer screening has increased early detection and treatment. Advances in medicine and earlier stage tumor detection have made radical mastectomies rare. The most common sign of breast cancer is a painless, hard lump with irregular edges. A high percentage of new cases are discovered by women who find lumps in their breasts, so selfexaminations should be practiced. Lifestyle can be modified to help decrease the risk. Hormone replacement therapy used to be commonplace, but due to the health risks involved, including heart disease, stroke, blood clots and breast cancer, doctors have prescribed it less. Since prolonged use of synthetic hormone therapy increases the risk of breast cancer, alternative solutions, such as diet and exercise, are great options to consider. Postmenopausal women who are overweight have a higher risk of breast cancer. Maintaining an ideal weight and following a diet higher in fresh foods, vegetables and fiber, such as the Mediterranean diet, decreases the risk. Some studies have shown a connection between alcohol consumption and breast cancer risk. Women should limit consumption to no more than one drink a day. Physical activity, such as exercising moderately for 30 minutes, 5 days a week, lowers risk and improves prognosis by decreasing endogenous sex hormone concentrations, insulin resistance and bad inflammation. Incorporating exercise and cancer-preventive lifestyle changes can reduce your breast cancer risk. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

SUN deaRPharmacistThree Tests To Check For Adrenal Fatigueby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Readers:Do you feel tired and drained of energy all the time? Maybe youve been trying to correct your thyroid hormone without luck. If youre adrenals are weak, youll have thyroid disease, as in hypothyroidism.Think about the past year or two. Have you been under pressure or a lot of stress. If work, school or relationships are causing you to suffer with constant deadlines, pressure or anguish (even mental anguish) then its possible that your exhaustion is from adrenal fatigue. Adrenal fatigue is the type of fatigue that occurs when your fight or flight glands produce too much cortisol and aldosterone (think of the alarming stage), and then after a while, too little cortisol because theyre completely worn out. The antidote to adrenal fatigue is easier said than done, although a mental or physical vacation from the stress might help. One overlooked reason for low libido is the pregnenolone steal. How do you know for sure if this is what youre dealing with? There are three home tests you can do to see if you have adrenal fatigue. I know of a fourth as well, in my extended version of this column. If you want to read that, please sign up for my newsletter at www.suzycohen.com, and Ill email it to you next week. The Pupil Test Go into a dark room and shine a little flashlight towards your eyes. Your pupils respond to light and dark, and upon the light shining into your eyes, they should constrict (get smaller) immediately. The constriction happens within seconds if youre healthy, but if your pupils stay dilated for 10 to 20 seconds before constricting, or they never constrict, then you probably have adrenal fatigue. Thermoregulation Adrenal fatigue will absolutely compromise the feedback loop that controls your bodys temperature. You might feel cold, then feel suddenly hot. Your temperature may vary by two degrees from day to day. If you take your temperature three times in one day, and three more times the next day, then take the average for each day, it should not differ by more than a couple of degrees from day to day. If it does, your adrenals are taxed, and temperature stability is more difficult to achieve. This might explain the hot/cold problem you have. Dehydration Do you crave salty foods like potato chips? Its possible that this is due to adrenal fatigue and the resulting fluctuations in aldosterone hormone. Your body cant utilize fluid effectively, or properly regulate sodium and potassium levels which causes mild dehydration, even though you could be drinking plenty of water. This is very common for people who have chronic fatigue, or who have been seriously ill for a long time. Blood Pressure Response Youll be taking your blood pressure twice for this test. Make sure youve drunk enough water the day you test. Lie down in bed and rest for five minutes then take your blood pressure. Then get up and take your blood pressure immediately (while standing up). The top number (systolic) should go up by about 8 to 10 points. If it doesnt, its a clue that your adrenals are overworked. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

Why is it that some people tend to change so much when the going gets tough instead of staying true to who they have always portrayed to have been to the world? Why is it that so many shy away from the person they truly are down deep inside, and instead try to be someone that they never really fit well into the mold of anyway? I feel strongly about the fact that we should dig deep inside to pull out the personalities, gifts and traits that we were blessed with and to not be afraid to let the world know who we really are. Wouldnt it make life better if we knew exactly who someone was at the start of a relationship or friendship rather then finding out later that this person is completely different than what we thought? My suggestion would be to get to know someone long enough to see them work through the good times and the tough times to see how they react and who they become or dont become in the midst of it all. Maybe it would be a good idea to test the waters when thinking about a long-term relationship with someone and make sure that you witness their character during both the calm and chaotic times of this thing called life. My aunt used to tell me when I was young that if you go through all four seasons with someone in a relationship you will really get to know them, but I also think that the seasons should be more than just certain times of the year. I believe that you should go through the various seasons of life both positive and negative which would include commitment, achievements, discoveries and blessings as well as seasons of sickness, sadness, loss and disagreements. You see we all tend to change over time, good or bad. We are always learning and growing, so it would be hard for anyone to stay of the exact same mentality forever. Some of the best advice that I can give is that even if you feel you know someone well enough to make a commitment to them in any kind of partnership, whether it be your work or personal life, make sure you look deep enough to see their true colors. Take a look at their past, their present and also what their plans are for the future. I would also encourage you to make sure that YOU are wearing your true colors at all times so that anyone you meet knows exactly who they are engaging with. Dont be afraid to show the world who you really are because you were designed to be unique and special and have much to contribute to all those who are lucky enough to know you. I am confident that grasping this notion will help push you in the direction of living your most balanced and beautifulife forever. My affirmation for you this week is: I am wearing my true colors at all times so the world can see all that I am meant to be.

Top 10 Real Estate SalesCourtesy of Royal Shell Real Estate 55 ISLAND SUN MAY 18, 2018 My Stars FOR WEEK OF MAY 21, 2018Aries (March 21 to April 19) Although you might prefer moving forward at a steady pace, it might be a good idea to stop and reassess your plans. You could find a good reason to make a change at this time. Taurus (April 20 to May 20) Just when you thought you had everything planned to the smallest detail, you get some news that could unsettle things. But a timely explanation helps put it all back on track. Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Home and work continue to compete for your attention. But you handle it well by giving each its proper due. Someone you trust offers valuable advice. Listen to it. Cancer (June 21 to July 22) Unsettling news creates a difficult but not impossible situation. Continue to follow your planned routine, but keep your mind open to a possible change down the line. Leo (July 23 to August 22) Lick your wounded pride if you like, but its a better idea to find out why your suggestions were rejected. What you learn could help you deal with an upcoming situation. Virgo (August 23 to September 22) Feeling a bit listless? No wonder. You might be pushing too hard to finish everything on your to-do list. Cutting it down could help get your energy levels up. Libra (September 23 to October 22) Taking time out of your busy schedule might be the best way to handle that sensitive private matter. It will help reassure everyone involved about your priorities. Scorpio (October 23 to November 21) Insist on full disclosure by all parties before agreeing to be part of a great deal. What you learn should help you decide whether to go with it or not. Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21) Your decision to protect the secret that was entrusted to you might irk some people. But it also wins you the admiration of those who value trust and loyalty. Capricorn (December 22 to January 19) Creative activities take on a practical approach as you realize you might be able to market your work. Ask for advice from someone experienced in this area. Aquarius (January 20 to February 18) If youre suddenly a bit unsure about your decision, ask trusted colleagues and/or friends or family members for suggestions that could help resolve your doubts. Pisces (February 19 to March 20) A workplace situation could get stormy. But stay on course until theres a solution that meets with everyones approval, and things can finally calm down. Born This Week: You keep an open mind on most matters, making you the confidante of choice for people who need your honest counsel. It was noted Spanish filmmaker Luis Bunuel who made the following sage observation: Age is something that doesnt matter, unless you are a cheese. You might be surprised to learn that we call coffee beans arent actually beans -theyre the pits of the coffee beans. Would you believe me if I told you that there were parachutists (better known now as skydivers) before there were airplanes? Yep, its true! In Paris in the year 1900, a man leaped from the Eiffel Tower and made a safe descent using a parachute. It wasnt until December 17, 1903, that the Wright Brothers made the first controlled, sustained powered flight in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. According to statisticians, about 200 people a year die while watching -not playing -football. Of all the stamps that have been used by the U.S. Postal Service, more have featured George Washington than any other person; so far there have been 305 with the likeness of the nations first president. If you ever make a trip to Alaska, you might want to keep in mind the fact that it is illegal there to wake a sleeping bear for the purpose of taking its picture. We dont often associate museums with beverages, but it seems that theyre fairly popular throughout the world. For instance, museums dedicated to coffee and/or tea can be found in London, Moscow, Paris, Sao Paolo, Zurich and Kyoto, as well as in China, South Korea, Colombia and Angola. Germany has three of them. Coffee and tea must be quite popular in the Netherlands; museums dedicated to the beverages can be found there in five different cities.
