As a member of CHRs board of directors for 33 years, Pavelka helped shape the City of Sanibels Below Market Rate Housing (BMRH) program. Along with Peter Valtin, he assisted with the development of a model program based upon affordable rents, subsidies, scope of development and other con cepts that CHR continues to operate under today. Ray was the longest serving vol unteer, board member and officer at CHR, said Dorothy Donaldson, CHR board member, in her opening remarks at the dedication ceremony. His commitment to affordable housing on Sanibel was complete. We honor him today for his 39 years of dedication and accomplishments. According to Donaldson, during the lean years experienced by CHR, Pavelka would provide short-term loans to the group in order to fill gaps in funding the program. She also announced the estab lishment of the Raymond Pavelka Fund for families who need that extra help to qualify for home ownership. While seed money for the fund was provided by the Pavelka family estate, Donaldson deliv ered her familys contribution to CHRcontinued on page 6 Last Wednesday morning, Dorothy Donaldson, left, welcomed the group gathered at Centre Place to dedicate a stone in memory of longtime CHR supporter Ray Pavelka photos by Jeff Lysiak Dorothy Donaldson standing next to the stoneby Jeff LysiakLast Friday morning at The Sanibel School, dozens of community members including elected officials, business owners and nonprofit organization representatives were invited to attend Leadership Day, an ongoing program which aims to instruct students on how to become leaders in their community. This is the first time weve held Leadership Day at The Sanibel School, said Principal Chuck Vilardi, who was the first principal in Lee County to bring the program to Skyline Elementary School in 2013. We introduced an initiative this year called The Leader In Me. Today, well have the kids take over and show off the school to their community.

Chances are, you were already outside playing. Did you run into the house screaming that you were getting wet or did you keep on playing, thinking that a little rain wasnt going to ruin your fun? Now, think of many of our our children today are they outside playing? Do they ever go out and play specifically in the rain? Or are they shooed inside fearful of getting a few rain drops on them? Are they hustled to another activity covered in a rain coat so as to not ruin their clothes and shoes? Recently, all of our students were out on the playground when it started to rain. Several of the children ran to teachers to tell us it was raining, others ran for the cover of the gazebo, some ran around trying to catch raindrops on their tongues, and others were not even phased by the rain. The children who reacted negatively to the rain took several minutes of seeing the teachers having fun getting wet, singing rain songs, stomping in puddles and catching raindrops with the students before they realized that it was okay to play and get wet. Playing in the rain, getting muddy in our case, sandy or jumping in puddles, zipping down a wet slide, catching rain drops on our tongues. Have your children experienced these things? Allowing children time for free play, in the rain, creates a joy of nature. Children are drawn to puddles and when they are allowed to play freely, they form a deeper connection with nature. This connection matures into an appreciation for nature, which in turn matures into an appreciation for conservation, something our island values tremendously; something our world needs desperately. I challenge all of you, of all ages, next time it starts to rain, go outside and play. Dont worry about your hair, your makeup, your clothes, or any other adult things we always get bogged down with. Walk, sing, jump, enjoy and feel alive! Our bodies are made up of water on the inside; its good for the soul to feel it on the outside. Isabelle Quillen and Isobel Costello were thrilled to be able to run and play in the rain photos provided Kaia Keating found it was easier to catch raindrops when she stopped swingingOn May 21, Porter J. Goss, II graduated with a bachelor of arts degree from Wake Forest University in Winston Salem, North Carolina. He earned a degree in political science/international affairs with a minor in history. Porter is the son of Allison and Chauncey Goss of Sanibel and is the grandson of Porter and Mariel Goss, also of Sanibel. Porter J. Goss II photo provided GRADUATION

From page 1Leadership Daythe Seahorse Chorale sang You Will Be Found from the Broadway musical Dear Evan Hansen and a medley of Lean On Me/Dont Stop Believin The brief program also included remarks about becoming a leader from students Grant Kaminer, Tye Robison, Annabella Del Valle, Ven Sampas, Lily Lockard, Preston Hanni and Anna Wells. Being a student here at The Sanibel School has taught me what it takes to be a true leader, said Wells, who read her award-winning essay from the Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Clubs annual eighth grade essay contest. The seven habits of the schools The Leader In Me initiative include: Be Proactive Youre in charge Begin With The End In Mind Have a plan Put First Things First Work first, then play Think Win-Win Everyone can win Seek First To Understand, Then To Be Understood Listen before you talk Synergize Together is better Sharpen The Saw Balance feels best. The eighth habit is Finding Your Voice, explained Vilardi. Our overall goal is to teach all of our students how to become a leader, and then have them serve their communities when they grow up. Following the program, guests were divided into three groups, where members of the schools Lighthouse Team and Junior Honor Society officers took them on a tour of several classrooms, the Sea-TV production studio and MWA Garden. Its all about learning and having fun, said Dr. Terrie Kielborn-Jennings, a middle school gifted/enrichment teacher whose students were sharing lessons they learned and projects they completed this year as part of their STEM (Science, Technology, Electronics and Mathematics) curriculum. One student, Kyle Klaric, demonstrated a robotic glove created in STEM class while classmate JJ Ignac talked about the schools Lego League robotics competitions and local water quality initiatives currently under way on Sanibel. Inside the Sea-TV production facility, media specialist Libby Payne had her students Daniela Montecillo and Ellie Bordiuk give guests a tour of the studio. Montecillo explained their process of mixing audio levels for the daily in-school closed circuit broadcasts while Bordiuk described how the cameras and lighting equipment worked. Every student has the potential to become a leader, added Vilardi. My goal is that well send our students out into the community and let them go as far as they can in this world.

On the plaque, Pavelka was honored for giving selflessly of his various talents in real estate, finance, policy development and common sense. Centre Place, a 14-unit workforce housing development opened in 2010, was the last major project he worked on. Also speaking at the dedication were: Richard Johnson, president of the CHR board; Jason Maughan, Sanibel city councilman and council liaison to CHR; and Judie Zimomra, Sanibel city manager. During his remarks, Johnson recalled the last time he and Pavelka spoke. We had a great conversation and I loved every minute of it, he said. But it wasnt about Ray. It was about everyone else. He wanted to know how the program was doing. Maughan shared his admiration for the champion of CHRs mission as someone who sets the example all of us should follow while Zimomra stated that Pavelka lived an inspirational life. From the very beginning, he made a commitment to make the community he served better, said Zimomra. Following the ceremony, guests mingled and spoke of their memories of Pavelka. What you see of me today, much of it is because of Ray, added Johnson, who also commended Pavelkas leadership with passion and integrity.

She was 65. Jeffcoats sharp intellect, extraordinary color-sense and innate talent made her a great painter. Her sensitivity and generous heart made her a great teacher. Everyone who met her loved her, and she loved them back. Over the years, Jeffcoat developed and taught painting courses in France and in Florida at Florida SouthWestern State College (Edison), her alma mater, Florida Gulf Coast University, BIG ARTS and for three years at SilverTree Art School in Naples, which she co-founded. Hollis Garland Jeffcoat was born on May 13, 1952 in Fort Myers, Florida. A fifth generation Floridian, Jeffcoat dubbed herself a true blue Florida Cracker. Her father, Joel Jeffcoat III, managed the family wholesale meat company, often taking his daughter by ferry to Sanibel to visit customers. Her mother, Sherry Carroll, was the first woman with a commercial real estate license in Southwest Florida. Jeffcoats predilection for abstract art surfaced early, when at the age of 5, she announced to her family that she would become an artist even though I dont color in the lines. She never wavered from that commitment. Soon after graduating from The New York Studio School, where she studied with some of the great painter/teachers of the time Philip Guston, Andrew Forge and Jack Tworkov Jeffcoat moved to France. There, her exceptional talent, commitment to her craft and indomitable spirit earned her the respect and friendship of several renowned artists Joan Mitchell, Francis Bacon, Jean-Paul Riopelle and Elaine de Kooning, among others. She strove for perfection not only in her painting, but also in any endeavor she took on. In France, she learned to speak perfect Parisian French by listening; in Canada, she became an excellent ice and fly fisherwoman and experienced hunter. She trained her retriever to hunt with her and because she believed strongly that you only kill what you eat, she was known as a superb cook. Fiercely independent, Jeffcoat forged her own way, because it was always only about the Paint. As she stated it hasnt always been easy, but I would not have it any other way. While she worked in other mediums, she seldom strayed from her true love, oil paint, and over the years explored its use on velum, Plexiglas, wood and etchings to wondrous results, creating long series of energetic, color rich work. Distinguished Color Field painter, art critic and essayist Darby Bannard wrote in 2005: she has made some changes, which bring her art to the level of the best painting being done anywhere. It is a pleasure to see work like this... Enjoy it. It is the real thing. After 30 years away in France, Montreal and New York City, Jeffcoat returned in 2008 to Sanibel, her favorite place in the world and the nature that was in her blood. It was here that she explored the relationship of color and sound. For the first time, Jeffcoat consciously employed her gift of synesthesia, a neurological phenomenon that caused her to automatically see color every time she heard a sound (something she had in common with her mentor, Joan Mitchell), to capture the feelings evoked by the cry of osprey that brought me to my knees. In the final years of her life, Jeffcoat gave herself over to expressing her own highly personal reactions to nature-based sounds and the ripples of color they evoked. Like other skills, through use, her synesthesia expanded to include the color of smells, taste and feel, enabling her to create a total sensory experience in paint. In the publication Arts SW Florida editor Tom Hall wrote: Ms. Jeffcoats oeuvre affords present and future generations a novel and heretoforeunexplored platform for examining their own relationships with nature, the ecology and the products of their senses, including those of taste and smell. This is Hollis Jeffcoats legacy. Its why her work is sure to endure. Jeffcoat had her first solo show at the Theo Waddington Gallery, Montreal in 1981 and her last in January 2018 at Watson MacRae Gallery, Sanibel, Florida, where she exhibited her newly completed Story Series paintings. In between, she exhibited extensively in Paris, Canada, New York City and Florida. Her work is included in the permanent collections of New Yorks Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Morgan Library, The Brooklyn Museum and The Contemporary Museums of Art in Montreal and in Quebec City, and the Tana and Pierre Matisse Collection, as well as private collections around the world. Like many late great artists, Hollis Jeffcoat has a large unfinished painting hanging on her studio wall with sketches of its next iteration. When she received the diagnosis of ovarian cancer, she cried, This cant be! I have too many paintings to paint. Jeffcoat leaves behind a devoted partner, a loving family and many, many beloved friends who will grieve her loss. She is survived by her life partner, Maureen Watson of Sanibel; mother, Sherry Carroll of Fort Myers; brother and sister-in-law, Joel and Laura Jeffcoat of Seattle; sister and brother-in-law, Lani and John Schwinn of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; brother, David Jeffcoat; niece, Gieva Jeffcoat; nephew, Taegen Jeffcoat; grand-niece and grand-nephew, Mya and Eric Mandat-Jeffcoat, all of Fort Myers.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 1, 201810 Bailey Tract RestorationThe JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge announced that it will be closing the Bailey Tract for four to six weeks starting on the afternoon of Sunday, June 3. This closure is for a planned hydrologic restoration project, in partnership with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), commencing on the morning of Monday, June 4. To avoid public safety concerns, the Bailey Tract will be closed to all public access for the duration of the restoration project. In response to public input received by the refuge, parts of the planned restoration have been modified to leave a part of Ani Pond open and keep a loop trail around it. The refuge and FWC also intend to: Remove the two artificial levees (approximately 1.5 and 0.5 acres, respectively) along both sides of the Tarpon Bay Slough and restore the footprint to marsh habitat; Remove the levee road along the northwestern edge of Ani Pond (approximately 0.1 miles) and restore the footprint to marsh habitat, leaving the larger of the two loop trails in place; Partially fill the Ani Pond and leave the eastern portion of the pond intact. The portion of the Ani Pond extending from the island to the western shore (approximately 1.2 acres) will be filled with excavated material and restored to marsh habitat; Install a series of up to eight culverts through the surrounding road levees to restore the hydrologic connection between existing fragments of marsh. This restoration is intended to enhance the hydrology of a portion of the Bailey Tract to benefit a suite of species dependent on the historic cordgrass marsh habitat of Sanibel Island. The restoration will partly restore the hydrology of the affected area by helping to increase groundwater levels, improve surface water capacity, extend the hydroperiod of the marsh, and ultimately restore the freshwater marsh habitat in the affected area. Contact Refuge Manager Paul Tritaik at paul_tritaik@fws.gov with any questions regarding the project. New Study At Sanibel ChurchSanibel Community Church will offer the study, The Forgotten God, Reversing the Tragic Neglect of the Holy Spirit by Francis Chan, beginning on Monday, June 11.

Plant SmartStarrush Whitetop by Gerri ReavesStarrush whitetop ( Rhynchospora colorata ) is a member of the sedge family and native to the southeastern U.S. In the wild, its found in Floridas freshwater wetlands, moist pinelands and prairies, as well as ditches and swales. Common names include white bracted sedge, whitetop sedge, painted sedge and fine-leaved white-top sedge. The terminal flowers appear on slender three-angled stalks that grow up to two feet tall. The very narrow grass-like leaves are erect and four to 12 inches long. Basal leaves are longer, and leaves on the stalk are shorter. What appears to be large downward curving flower petals are in fact bracts, or leaf-like parts, just below a central flower cluster. The three to seven slender bracts have white bases, which are usually less than an inch wide. The tips of the bracts look as if they have been dipped in green paint. White cone-shaped spikelets, or scales, enclose rounded clusters of minute yellowish flowers. Unlike most sedges, this species is not pollinated by wind. The colorful bracts attract pollinators to the tiny flowers, which bloom year around in South Florida. Plant this long-lived wildflower it in a moist area or use it as a groundcover. Give it full sun to partial shade. It spreads via rhizomes, horizontal root-like stems. Propagate it by dividing the rhizomes or with the seeds. The beaked achene, or dry seed, inspires the term Rhynchospora in the botanical name. Rhynchos is Greek for beak and spora means seed. Sources: Everglades Wildflowers by Roger L.

13 ISLAND SUN JUNE 1, 2018 Over 15,000 Lionfish Removed From State WatersMore than 15,000 lionfish were removed from Florida waters thanks to several tournaments held across the state focused on targeting the invasive species. Five of those fish were tagged previously by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) staff as part of the 2018 Lionfish Challenge, a removal incentive program that started May 19 on Lionfish Removal and Awareness Day. This is an amazing showing for the fourth annual Lionfish Removal and Awareness Day weekend and surrounding events, said Jessica McCawley, director of FWCs Division of Marine Fisheries Management. Lionfish were removed via tournaments and the FWCs incentive program, and the public got to learn firsthand about lionfish and what they can do to help at festivals like the one in Perdido Key held by the FWC and Coast Watch Alliance, as well as various other partners. The Lionfish Challenge runs through September 3. More than 200 people have already registered to participate in the statewide challenge, which rewards lionfish harvesters with prizes for their lionfish removals, tagged or not. The tagged lionfish component is new this year and includes cash prizes up to $5,000. Lionfish were tagged at 50 public artificial reefs across the state. Harvesters who caught the five tagged fish took home cash prizes up to $2,500 and non-cash prizes as well. All five tagged fish were caught off Escambia County. Sign up and learn more at www. myfwc.com/lionfish. The FWC thanks all of the sponsors and organizations across the state that helped make this Lionfish Removal and Awareness Day event a success. Lionfish and other exotic pets that can no longer be cared for should never be released into Florida waters or lands. To learn more about where to surrender an exotic pet for adoption, visit www. myfwc.com/wildlifehabitats and click on Nonnative Species and Exotic Pet Amnesty Program. Statewide lionfish events removal totals include: 9,606 Lionfish World Championship, Pensacola; 4,056 Lionfish World Championship Pre-Tournament, Pensacola; 1,490 Lion Tamer Tournament, Panama City Beach; 231 Florida Skin Divers Association Lionfish Calcutta, St. Petersburg.

Memorial Day Washoutby Capt. Matt MitchellSubtropical storm Alberto put a quick halt for most on getting out on the water over the past holiday weekend. In the days leading up to this rain event, fishing was good unless you where tarpon fishing. The days I targeted tarpon, even though we found and often sat in rolling fish, we just could not get them to go nor did we see another boat hook-up. Switching gears and targeting snook, trout and redfish action was the call, and we where rewarded with some awesome action that made you ask yourself, why am I even trying to catch these tarpon? Two of the groups I had this week had multiple tarpon trips scheduled with me and, after we had a unsuccessful tarpon hunt, I talked them both into targeting snook, redfish and trout which we did with great results. I was lucky enough to get on some of the better redfish action I have seen in months, along with big snook in the passes and scattered trout action. Even when conditions have been near perfect, the tarpon bite has just been tougher most trips than in previous years. The longer I do this the more I really prefer to tarpon fish in the fall when there is very little pressure on these fish that they just eat. This week, every time you found a few tarpon other boats would simply pile in on you and spook the fish. You would see a group of fish come up and roll then they would go down and just never resurface. It was over that quick. After a few days of running many miles looking for tarpon and just not finding any decent numbers of fish, its brutal as a guide and really just starts to wear you down. Low incoming morning tides proved a very productive set-up for the passes with a variety of species taking our live shiners. The amount of different species was impressive with snook, trout, grouper, snapper, mackerel and jacks being just part of the bite. As the tide got faster, we added a split shot to our rigs to get the hook down closer to the bottom, and the bite kept on going. South winds added to the high tide and let us mangrove fish by mid-morning most days. Going mangrove shoreline to shoreline, we caught snook, redfish and big trout with free-lined shiners. Most of these fish on the mangroves were up super tight to the trees, and the best action came right after the tide change as the water began to go out. We are very lucky to have lots of options, thats one of the things that makes this fishery so incredible. Being able to switch it up and change species was what I had to do this week to keep my clients smiling. Even though they had tarpon on the brain when tarpon are just not doing it, it was a better choice to go out and catch some of the other quality gamefish that our area offers anglers. 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.

Aboard Captiva Cruises motor catamaran vessel The Playtime the fifth grade students in Ann Franke and Lisa Whalens classes cruised the waters of Pine Island Sound and the Gulf of Mexico while discussing the importance of the back bay estuary and barrier islands of Southwest Florida. The students had the opportunity to take a closer look at the shoreline habitats of Cayo Costa State Park. Along the trail to the beach, students looked for mangrove tree crabs, snails and other signs of life within the mangrove swamp. On the gulf beach, students recorded their observations of shells and other evidence of marine life, dune vegetation and surf zone inhabitants such as coquina clams and mole crabs. On the beach exploration, to the total delight of the students, a sea turtles tracks were discovered where a female sea turtle recently deposited her eggs. On the cruise back to McCarthys Marina on Captiva, a trawling net was used and students were able to observe pinfish, parrot fish, grunts, pufferfish and even a seahorse. The importance of the sea grasses and other habitats within the back bay estuary was evident to the students as they were witnesses to the life within Pine Island Sound.

CROW Case Of The Week: Barred Owl by Bob PetcherThe barred owl (Strix varia) is the prototypical owl that gets its name from the coloring of its wings and tail, a barred brown and white shade. These large, stocky owls have round heads, no ear tufts, brown eyes and rounded tails. Also referred to as a hoot owl, the barred owl has been compared to the spotted owl in appearance, though the spotted owl is smaller in size and has spots rather than streaks. Barred owls generally live in tree cavities, sleeping mainly in the daytime and hunting by night. That hunting process is mostly a sit-and-wait game from an elevated perch using a sharp panoramic scan with their keen eyesight and hearing. These owls have a recognizable hoot that has been roughly translated as, Who cooks for you? At CROW, an adult barred owl was admitted to the hospital from Lehigh Acres where it was found on the ground near a fire station. When it arrived at the clinic, the owl was severely down and depressed, and it could barely move. An IV catheter was placed to administer fluid therapy for the bird, and it was placed in an oxygen chamber. When patients are down and stressed, the additional oxygen can help improve their breathing, as well as ability to transport oxygen throughout their body, said Dr. Malka Spektor, CROW veterinary intern. The owl was in oxygen for two days before being moved to a regular enclosure. The intake exam revealed a right wing droop and possible toe injury. The feet were bandaged with ball bandages. A wing droop is when the patient is holding a wing in an abnormal, drooped position. This can be caused by orthopedic or soft tissue injuries, as well as weakness or systemic illness, said Dr. Spektor. In this patients case, we suspect it was due to weakness. It resolved when the patient became stronger and was able to hold its body up normally. The owls mentation did improve three days later, and a full set of x-rays were taken. The radiographs showed the owl had a fractured toe on each of its feet; however they were noted as older injuries that had already mostly healed. By May 22, just five days after being admitted to the clinic, CROW officials stated the owl had become bright and alert and was moved to an outside enclosure. Its wing droop had resolved, and the owl was cleared for release. The patients quick turnaround in health may have been due to the flushing out of a toxin in the owls system. Since radiographs and bloodwork, as well as physical examination, did not show any glaring abnormalities other than mentation, we suspect that it could have been a toxin, or some kind of systemic infection that did not show up in the bloodwork. Treating the patient with IV fluids helps flush out any toxins, as well as improving its circulation, said Dr. Spektor. The patient was also put on antibiotics to treat any infections, either primary or secondary to being down. If we are able to get ahead of the disease process, and support the patient with fluids and food, it can be enough to improve their condition. The patient was reportedly released successfully by the finder at the same location it was found on the afternoon of May 24, just one week after being admitted.

Shell Of The Week (Part Two)Lightning Whelkby Jos H. Leal, PhD, BaileyMatthews National Shell Museum Science Director and CuratorLast week, I discussed some of the distinguishing features of and cool facts about the Lightning Whelk, Sinistrofulgur sinistrum (Hollister, 1958). Today, I want to explore certain aspects of the reproduction in this celebrated species. As with most of the large, predatory marine snails, Lightning Whelks have separate sexes, and females lay eggs inside protective egg capsules. Each egg capsule may contain a few dozen eggs, and capsules are attached to each other through a string one string may connect as many as a couple hundred capsules. Mother Lightning Whelk starts the egg-laying process by attaching the first section of the string under the sand; string and capsules are manufactured by a special gland under the mothers foot (photo on left). After a couple of months of confined (but protected) development, the young whelks leave via an escape hatch near the edge of each capsule.

Due to the abundance of mangroves, wetlands and salt marshes, Sanibel is a prime breeding ground for mosquitoes. If you are experiencing a high number of mosquitoes at your residence, make a service request by calling LCMCD directly at 694-2174. If the LCMCD receives complaints from a specific area or neighborhood, the district dispatches personnel to conduct a mosquito count and, if warranted, will fog or spray the area.

Blueberry photos provided Cherry Blue Day Trip: Paddling The Turner Riverby Ocean Tribe PaddlersFrom natural springs to wild, uninhabited mangrove islands, Florida offers an abundance of beautiful paddling destinations. Just an hour and a half from Sanibel, along the Tamiami Trail, is one of our favorite places for a day trip the Turner River. Located in the Everglades, the river winds through a variety of habitats and offers an abundance of breathtaking views and wildlife watching opportunities. It is possible to arrange guided tours out of Everglades City, but we prefer to transport our own paddlecraft to the parking and launch site just west of the intersection of Tamiami Trail and Turner River Road. Paddling trail maps for the area are available on the Big Cypress National Preserve section of the wwwe.nps.gov website, and you should familiarize yourself before you go. We prefer an in-and-out style trip, because it can be easily adapted to suit your groups energy level and schedule. Heading south towards Chokoloskee (about 10 miles total distance), you will pass through cypress forest, pinelands, prairie, pond apple trees and mangroves. The gradually changing landscape means there is always something new to look at along the way. Common sightings include turtles, alligators, numerous bird species, and orchids and bromeliads. On a recent paddle, we spotted a Big Cypress fox squirrel, an orange-colored subspecies of the eastern fox squirrel that is endemic to the area. If you decide to go, arrive early to ensure that parking is available. Weekdays provide a better opportunity for a quiet paddle than busier weekends. Pack plenty of snacks, water, sunscreen and other necessities, as this is a remote region. Happy paddling! Ocean Tribe Paddlers is a club that helps the Southwest Florida paddling community better explore, enjoy and understand the ocean. Visit www. oceantribepaddlers.org or follow on Facebook to learn more. Snook Closes In State And Federal WatersThe recreational harvest of snook in Atlantic state and federal waters is closed as of June 1. Snook is also currently closed for harvest in Gulf of Mexico state and federal waters, and will reopen for harvest statewide on September 1. Unique to the region, snook are one of the many reasons Florida is the Fishing Capital of the World. Seasonal harvest closures and anglers using proper handling methods when practicing catch-and-release help conserve Floridas valuable snook populations and can ensure the species abundance for anglers today and generations to come. To learn more and see a video about catch-and-release fishing and the best way to handle a fish, visit www.myfwc.com/fishing and click on Saltwater Fishing, then Recreational Regulations and Fish Handling.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 1, 201824 Shorebird Nesting Season Reaches Peakby Jeff LysiakThe spring and summer months are a very special time for birding enthusiasts on the islands, as it is considered the most active period for nesting shorebirds and their offspring. Its peak nesting season right now, said Audrey Albrecht, shorebird biologist for the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF). There are birds everywhere and there are babies everywhere. Last week at the SCCF Nature Center, Albrecht delivered a 45-minute presentation on the three plover species found along Sanibel and Captivas beachers snowy plovers, Wilsons plovers and piping plovers along with a few details about the lesser-seen least terns, offering information on how to identify them, their breeding and nesting habits, and how to protect these diminutive threatened species. So far in 2018, we have had six snowy plover nests. One was depredated by crows, two have hatched (three chicks currently remaining, two from one brood and one from another) and three nests are still active, explained Albrecht. We expect more snowy nests soon. Often found along the wrack lines, plovers are highly camouflaged and are difficult to spot even for the experienced beachgoer. Adult snowy plovers grow to approximately five and a half inches tall, and weigh between 34 and 58 grams. They eat insects, small crustaceans, mollusks and marine worms. They can be identified by several distinguished markings: the upper body varies from grayish to light brown, with a white belly. Black bands are visible on the forehead, behind the eyes and ears. In males, dark markings are more pronounced. Snowy plovers have a short, thin black bill and gray legs. According to Albrect, there are approximately 250 nesting pairs of snowy plovers (Charadrius alexandrines tenuirostris) in the state of Florida, including an estimated 10 pairs nesting on the islands. These shorebirds live an average of two to three years, however, one of the plovers here on Sanibel lived to age 13. Snowy plovers are kinda like our poster child because everybody knows them and loves them, she told the crowd. The plovers here arent really migratory, but they do move around in this area of the gulf. Were not really sure why they hang around, but were glad they do. In 2017, 14 nesting attempts by snowy plovers were recorded. Of the three chicks that were produced last year, one of them successfully fledged. One dozen nests failed; six were depredated, four were washed over and two were abandoned. For comparisons sake, only five Wilsons plover nests were attempted in 2017, and only two of them hatched. However, their numbers were more successful than their snowy cousins: four chicks were produced. In 2018, Albrecht reported three Wilsons plover nests, with one active, one depredated by crows and one washed over. But both pairs are setting up to nest again very soon, she added. Least terns did not make any nesting attempts on Sanibel or Captiva last year, and as a result no chicks were recorded. But 2018 is a different story, as Albrecht reported that 25 least tern nests have been found at Bowmans Beach. As of March 24, three of those nests had hatched, and there were eight chicks. If you get anywhere near their colony, theyre gonna let you know, she said, noting that humans who get too chose to a least tern nest are often dive-bombed or attacked by the protective parents. During her lecture, Albrecht pointed out the history of Sanibels snowy plover banding research program, discussing details of Orange/Black (banded as an adult in 2009), Blue/Orange (banded on January 2, 2017) and Green/White (hatched on May 23, 2017 and banded one month later). Our fledgling from last year, Green/ White, left Sanibel after fledging in July 2017, she explained. It was seen on Caladesi Island State Park on August 23 and survived Hurricane Irma. It was on Honeymoon Island State Park on October 9 and then spent the winter on Siesta Key (November through April). The last sighting was reported on May 25 at Siesta Key. If people see banded birds, they should send photos and a description to shorebirds@sccf.org. According to the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commissions (FWC) Share the Beach with Beach Nesting Birds brochure, populations of beach-nesting birds are declining due to significant modification and disturbance of beaches due to human activities. The fate of each delicate nest is truly critical to the survival of these birds, the brochure reads, in part. By being a responsible beach-user, you can help beach-nesting birds and their young survive. The FWC has a number of suggested practices that birding enthusiasts and wildlife photographers can employ in order to protect nesting shorebirds on the beach. Their tips included: Keep your distance If birds become agitated or leave their nests, you are too close. A general rule is to stay at least 300 feet from a nest. Respect posted areas Avoid posted nesting and resting areas and use designated walkways. Never intentionally force birds to fly When birds are chased or disturbed, they use energy they need to reserve for nesting and migration. Keep pets away from nesting areas Even well-behaved pets can be perceived as a threat to birds and will disturb them. If you take pets to the beach, keep them leashed and away from nesting areas. Keep the beach clean and do not feed wildlife Food scraps attract predators such as raccoons, coyotes and crows to the beaches. Litter on beaches can entangle birds, sea turtles and other wildlife. Spread the word If you see people disturbing nesting birds, gently remind them how their actions may hurt birds survival. If they continue to disturb nesting birds, call and report their activities to FWCs Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404FWCC (3922). Upcoming programs at the SCCF Nature Center, located at 3333 SanibelCaptiva Road, include Turtle Tracks, held every Thursday at 10 a.m. Admission is free for SCCF members and children, and $5 for non-members. For more information, visit www.sccf.org or call 472-2329.

25 ISLAND SUN JUNE 1, 2018Chef Shares Healthy Asian Cooking Tipsby Jeff LysiakLast week at the Culinary Education Center of Sanibel, Resident Chef Jarred Harris shared recipes, food preparation tips and shortcut cooking methods for Asian-inspired dishes before a dozen eager foodies and home cooks. Harris Healthy Asian Cooking class included a demonstration and tasting for beginners and experienced cooks. Recipes prepared for the group included Chicken Satay, Shrimp and Vegetable Summer Rolls with a Spicy Peanut Sauce, Seafood Pho Noodle Soup, and Coconut and Honey Custard. I tried to come up with some healthy recipes that were quick to prepare and easy to follow, said Harris. Most of the ingredients well be using are already in your cupboard, and the fresh ingredients are available at Baileys (General Store), so anyone will be able to make these dishes. To begin his demonstration, Harris showed the group how to prepare ingredients to make a fresh and delicious Chicken Satay dish. The recipe called for only 11 ingredients including lemongrass, vegetable oil, fish sauce, palm sugar, lime, soy sauce, garlic, turmeric, coriander, Sriracha and boneless chicken breast. Once the chicken has been sliced into strips and marinated, they should be placed onto bamboo skewers and grilled until fully cooked. Soak your bamboo skewers in water before you cook them, said Harris. The water will be absorbed into the skewer, which will make it easier to remove and keep them from burning. After Harris completed each course, class participants were invited to sample the finished product. The questions I always get are Can I really make this that fast? and Can I make that with a different ingredient? Harris said prior to the start of the 90-minute session, I always tell people that they dont have to use only the ingredients I have in the printed recipe. They can use any vegetable they want, or as little or as many as they want. Theres no wrong way to make great food. With many people preparing their meals with special diets in mind low sodium, low sugar, low carbohydrates, gluten free, etc. cooking in the Asian style is very adaptable. Its all about eating whole, fresh foods using organic ingredients, added Harris. Also during the demonstration, Harris showed the group how to prep a lime for juicing by rolling it underneath your hand, how to use a julienne zester when slicing vegetables, and stressed the importance of wearing gloves when handling fresh chili peppers. Cooking Asian recipes is all about clean flavors that are fast to prepare and healthy for you, Harris explained. And its just so easy to do. You eat like this every day and you will lose weight. Upcoming events at the Culinary Education Center of Sanibel include: Parent & Child Cooking Class Monday, June 11, 10 a.m. to noon A hands-on family cooking class, Chef Jarred Harris will show kids and their parents simple recipes that are healthy, fun and delicious.

Nasturtiums are native to Peru and they are easily recognized by their brightly colored flowers and their peppery taste, similar to watercress. In fact, the word nasturtium means nose twister in Latin. This refers to the reaction one has when the flower is eaten. The leaves and the seeds of the nasturtium plant are edible as well, and the seeds are commonly used as a substitute for capers.Not only is the nasturtium edible, but its also a medicinal plant widely used in folk medicine. Nasturtium contains vitamins C and B, carotene, iodine, potassium and phosphorus. Nasturtium also contains 10 times the ascorbic acid than lettuce leaves. Nasturtium is used as a pain reliever, immune booster, to strengthen blood vessels and bones, as a cough suppressant, to slow down aging processes and removecarcinogens from the body. The juice of the nasturtium is often used to treat burns and other skin irritations. I grow nasturtium in my garden not only for culinary purposes, but to attract hummingbirds and also to protect my garden from pests. The bright flowers repel whiteflies, aphids and cabbage beetles. Nasturtium also helps against viral and fungal diseases of plants. Nasturtium was one of the favorite plants of the French artist Claude Monet. His garden in Paris was largely planted with nasturtium. If you are an avid gardener and have access to nasturtium flowers, here is a simple and interesting recipe to try. Nasturtium Butter Ingredients 16 ozs. unsalted butter (softened) 32 ozs. nasturtium flowers Juice and zest of 1 lemon Method Place a sheet of parchment on a baking tray and set aside. Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend thoroughly. Remove the butter and place in a piping bag with a decorative tip. Pipe the butter on the tray and place in the freezer for 1 hour. Remove the butter from the tray and place in zip closure bags. Store in the fridge for 4 weeks or the freezer for 3 months. Use on fish, chicken and game.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 1, 201828 SUN Book ReviewCall Me Zebraby Di SaggauCall Me Zebra by Azareen Van Der Vliet Oloomi, is a brilliant, demented and bizarre book that demands all the attention a reader might dare to give it, and there are definitely rewards for reading it. In this delightful novel, 22-yearold Zebra is the last in a long line of Autodidacts, Anarchists, Atheists exiled from early s Iran. As the book begins, her name is Bibi Abbas Abbas Hosseini, a tragicomic heroine who was raised in Iran during the height of the Iraq War. Bibi fled with her parents, and now more than 10 years later, with both her parents dead, Bibi seeks a new mentor, vocation and identity. The Zebra, she muses, is an animal striped black-and-white like a prisoner of war; an animal that rejects all binaries, that represents ink on paper; its a name fit for an outsider, and she takes it as her name. When she was born, her father whispered to her, Love nothing except literature. He said, Literature reveals the lies and the hypocrisy of the world. It is the only true record. After I am gone, you will be the last remaining scribe of the future. Zebra decides to honor her ancestors and make a Grand Tour of Exile through the Old World. In Barcelona she confronts the intellectual, spiritual and moral residues of colonialism and capitalism. She meets an Italian philologist named Ludo Bembo who intrigues her. He is someone she sometimes falls in love with. Their love affair forces Zebra to confront the way she uses literature to both separate and connect herself to the world and to others. Her life and mind are stuffed with literature. Her memorization skills are amazing. Call Me Zebra is fiction but its full of complex ideas and uses philosophy to clarify and amplify the human story. Zebra says, More than anything else in the world, I felt the need to record the uselessness of my familys suffering. Saddam Hussein was the despot who ultimately displaced her father and mother. Zebra decides to revisit some of the places where she has lived in order to retrace her familys dislocation and to compose a grand manifesto on the meaning of literature. Don Quixote is one of her favorite characters. She is obsessed and relentless and in hilarious ways, very hard to handle. The greatest thing about Call Me Zebra is how funny it is. Zebras ferocious intellect and razor-sharp wit help her survive and keep the reader immensely entertained. She constantly quotes great writers of the past. In fact, almost every time she opens her mouth she is quoting a line from a book. Shes the smartest narrator Ive encountered this year. Call Me Zebra is like nothing else Ive read. Its refreshing, funny and an excellent read.

For more information, contact Mary Bondurant at 839-3633. School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Readers, Now that summer is upon us, there is more time to play outside with your children. A typical playground provides lots of opportunities for great fun as well as for physical and intellectual development of your children. Below is some information about play and the developmental process. Swinging, a basic playground activity, is one of the very best activities for childrens development in many areas. It helps with balance and teaches them to know where their body is in space, which is important for successful vestibular development. It also provides practice with fine motor skills like gripping the chain, gross motor skills such as pumping their legs to swing higher and coordination. Swinging helps the brain to figure out speed and direction. Climbing playground equipment and even climbing trees can help with childrens motor planning and flexible thinking (to think about something in a new way). In order to climb, children need to build an awareness of where their body parts are and what they can do with them. Climbing helps them understand and experience spatial directions like up, down, left and right. Climbing also encourages problem solving and predicting whats going to happen. For example, your child may wonder, Where should my right foot go next? How will I get down from the top? This kind of problem-solving can help on the playground and in the classroom. Playing on overhead equipment, like monkey bars, helps children develop both fine and gross motor skills. Practicing small movements like gripping the bar as well as big movements such as swinging from one bar to the next develop strength, balance and practice coordination. Free play from organized games to just running around with other kids is great. Free play helps children learn to communicate with other kids and practice conversation and vocabulary. Playgrounds can teach children how to follow and change rules, share and take turns. Social interactions on the playground can help children learn and practice social cues like body language and tone of voice. No matter the game, be it kickball, tetherball, or the activity like swinging, climbing or just free play, a great deal of childrens development occurs through play. As children figure out how to hold on to and climb playground equipment, manipulate, throw or kick a ball, they are practicing very important fine and gross motor and coordination skills. As they develop strategies about play, where to put their feet next or whether its time to run to the next base, theyre working on critical thinking and problem-solving. Learning through playing is a great way to help your child develop. Have fun at the playground this summer!

She is also a nationally certified school psychologist and consultant for School Consultation Services, a private educational consulting company.

Poets Corner by Hannah Star RogersHow the Captain was Civilized by a Blue Clam Through buttonwoods yet fragrant flower the tide at night exposed its tender meat for snails. The pods yet dangle as a weeping chime as through them moves the ochre mangrove crab. The open shell its tongue unfolds in tide its open whirl the sun pulls back and dries. The ocean curls around the pressing oars, overhead cadence and a flag unfurls. Collecting ship, we treasure the least rare: the seeds, the hides of creatures large and small, the temperature of parts unknown, the glass holds worlds seen by the microscope alone. I but a new man, a tabla rasa, my wax now fused to freshly mollusced sands, peeled back the shell, poured in the boiling sea, and from blue flesh yet she a gleaming white. While ocean touched her brief array she glowed, yet when I packed her in wool cloth she grayed. If time should take me back to those late waves, I would return to that great beach the pearl. Hannah Star Rogers holds an MFA from Columbia University and a PhD from Cornell University. Her writing has appeared in the Kenyon Review LA Review of Books Carolina Quarterly and Southern Womens Review We invite submissions from local poets. Anyone interested may submit their work via email to Islandsunpoetry@ gmail.com. Each week, an individual poem will be showcased.

29 ISLAND SUN JUNE 1, 2018 As Sanibel Public Librarys Your Library Reimagined remodel project continues, half of the facility is open for normal operating hours. Registration for the Summer Reading program is now open for babies, preschoolers, children and teens. Participants will receive a special gift (quantities are limited). As in years past, children can read to earn books for their home library and for patients at Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida. Children who participate in the Summer Reading program can receive books they can keep for their own personal library. The Sanibel Public Library Foundation matches each book earned with a book for the hospital. Last year 1,810 books were earned by island readers for young patients. Since its inception in 2012, young readers have helped to contribute more than 6,000 books to the hospital. The Summer Reading program is funded in part by a grant from the Sanibel Public Library Foundations Joan Hunt Cory Childrens Fund. The fund was established in 2008 to honor longtime library volunteer and supporter Cory, who was also a 20-year Sanibel resident. Families can register in person or online. Logging reading time and activities can be done via paper or online with Beanstack (a link is on the childrens page at www.sanlib.org). This year, Beanstack is now offered as a smartphone app. Last summer, more than half of readers used Beanstack to track their summer reading and earn awards. The app not only logs reading time, but also delivers personalized book recommendations. Adults who dont have children at home can also use Beanstack to organize their reading and get book recommendations. Family Storytime is scheduled for 11 a.m. on Wednesdays in June and July. This is a baby-to-age-5 program that encourages the development of pre-reading skills with singing, reading, writing and playing. On Fridays in June and July, stop by the library at 2 p.m. for family-friendly musical movies. At 3 p.m. on Tuesday, June 5 children can make a rain stick, build a tambourine and decorate a maraca shaker then make some noise. Program is for ages 5 to 11; no registration is required. Incoming sixth through 12th graders are invited to VIP After-Hours gatherings on Tuesday evenings in June and July from 6 to 7 p.m. On June 5, the group will be making Shrinky Dinks.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 1, 201832 City Of Sanibel Summer Interns The City of Sanibel recently welcomed two summer interns: Sydney Hummel and Connor Tomlinson. Both will be interning with City Manager Judie Zimomra and the city administration this summer, working on an array of projects. Tomlinson, who worked with the city last summer, is returning to work with the city manager. When asked why he returned to work with the city, Tomlinson replied, Last summer, I learned a great deal from working with the highly professional and knowledgeable city staff. Not only did I learn how to effectively work in a team, but I also realized my professional potential as an individual. This summer gives me an opportunity to build upon what I have learned over the last year. Tomlinson recently graduated from the University of South Florida with a bachelors degree in political science. He is also an honors graduate of Fort Myers High School and The Sanibel School. Hummel is entering her sophomore year at Hobart and William Smith colleges this fall, where she is majoring in political science and pursuing Spanish and Hispanic studies. She is a recent honors graduate of Canterbury School. When asked why she wanted to work with the city, Hummel responded, There is so much experience to be gained in learning how our local government works and the opportunity to help the community is something that will aid me in the future. I am honored to be a part of the team. Hummel plans to continue her education at law school.

Sanibel, FL 33957 coin.decoratingden.com 239.472.6551 COTI Names New Board Membersby Jan Holly, COTI Vice PresidentNew Committee of the Islands board members Peter Walcott, Barbara Joy Cooley, Maryann Bell and Malcolm Martini are enthusiastic about their upcoming COTI responsibilities. All four were elected to the board at the organizations annual meeting. Walcott, who first visited the island in spring 2005, recalls being stunned and thrilled that such a place could still exist in 21st-century Florida. Upon learning of COTIs critical role in maintaining the Sanibel sanctuary, Walcott said, I wanted to participate in its activities, to help preserve this wonderful place. As the organizations membership chair, Walcott coordinates the member forums that COTI will sponsor in November and February. I am committed to COTIs community outreach goals, Walcott said. The forums are a wonderful vehicle to bring people together about issues islanders hold dear. I will continue to push for member involvement, to strengthen the organization. Observing COTI board meetings was crucial to his decision to serve, Walcott noted. I wanted to see how the discussions took place, he said, adding, I was very impressed by the meetings and by COTIs open invitation to members to sit in on meetings. With a background in urban planning, Martini has chosen to serve on COTIs land use planning committee. I am interested in municipal issues, Martini said. I have always understood COTI to be widely accepted in the community as a group that approaches issues reasonably, with well-thought-out rationales. Martini added, I am delighted to be asked to serve to help assure that Sanibel continues as an environmentally sound and stable community. Bell sees COTI as vital to both of the islands, because it addresses issues of importance to all who live here. COTI is responsive to the concerns of islanders. COTI reacts forcefully to proposed changes in policy or to threats to the Sanibel Plan, Bell added. It upholds the plan very well, and it is constantly educating the public about the plan and its importance. This is COTIs greatest strength. Bell, who is a member of COTIs traffic committee, hopes to bring strategic thinking to the table. I am strongly opposed to low-speed vehicle rentals, because they slow traffic so terribly, she said. I intend to work on how we can move forward positively on coming up with ideas that we can say yes to. Cooley returns to the COTI board after a three-year hiatus. She served as COTIs president for four years and was recipient of its 2017 Citizen of the Year Award. Cooley defines her mission as a defender of the Sanibel Plan, which she explained is to protect the island from over-development and to protect the environment. Politics is how we do that. According to Cooley, COTIs strength lies in its numbers. Our membership is at, or near, an all-time high, she said. COTI is the biggest political group on the island, and it is non-partisan. This is a real strength. As chair of the environmental committee, Cooley recognizes that many Sanibel issues now originate off-island. Overdevelopment in Lee County causes traffic and pollution problems for Sanibel, she said. Because Sanibel is small compared to Lee County, we must be strategic, and we must try harder. Anyone wishing to learn about or become a member of the Committee of the Islands is invited to visit www.coti. org. Peter Walcott Maryann Bell Barbara Joy Cooley Malcolm Martini

Lisa Armstrong of Comfort Keepers, added, It is so important that we all learn how to access appropriate health resources and know how to best communicate with our health care providers. This knowledge will lead you to become a better self-advocate. This seminar is open to the community and snacks will be provided. For more information and to RSVP, contact Kathy Y.

The cycle begins now, with distribution of grants in January 2019. Zontas mission is to empower women and girls through service, advocacy and funding, said Diane Chesley, grants committee co-chair. To this end, Zontas work focuses on education, economic self-sufficiency, safety and health for women and girls. Chesley went on to say that successful preliminary grant applications will be on mission, i.e. applicable to one or more of these aspects of empowering women. They will also be specific, with stated, measureable outcomes. Previous grant recipients are encouraged to submit innovative programs that expand upon the results of prior projects or that introduce new initiatives. Collaborative projects between two or more 501(c)3 organizations will also be welcomed. Applicants are asked to note the following: Since Zonta is non-sectarian, applications with a faith-based or religious connection cannot be considered; Submitting a preliminary grant application does not insure that the organization will be invited to participate further in the process; Reaching the final grant application stage does not insure that the organization will receive funding during the 2019 grant cycle; Applicants invited to submit a final grant application can expect to work collaboratively with a Zonta member as liaison. For preliminary applications that meet the identified criteria, a final, detailed application will be distributed at the beginning of October, with a submission deadline of October 26, 2018. Preliminary applications are due by July 29, 2018. To download an application, visit www.zontasancap. com; there is a link on the home page. Email the completed application to info@zontasancap.com as well as to grants committee co-chairs Janine Boardman at janinesanibel@yahoo.com and Diane Chesley at dhchesley@gmail. com. Habitat for Humanitys Women Build has received a Zonta grant for the past three years.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 1, 201840 Can you impose a religious test on your beneficiaries or for that matter any other lifestyle test or else they become disinherited from your estate after your death? This is an intriguing question that became the point of contention in an Illinois case. Looking at In re Estate of Feinberg, Max Feinberg created a trust in which he declared that any grandchildren or lower descendants who marry outside of the Jewish faith are to be treated as if the grandchild predeceased the grandparents, thereby denying the grandchild a share of the inheritance unless the spouse of such descendant has converted to the Jewish faith. The parties to the litigation call this the Jewish clause. An Illinois circuit court held that this Jewish clause was invalid and an appellate court confirmed, both finding the clause unenforceable and against public policy. Generally speaking, courts will find such constraints against public policy if they either encourage divorce or discourage marriage itself. One of the judges of the appellate court disagreed, stating that the clause should be held valid. Max and Erla had a dream to preserve their 4,000 year old heritage, Justice Alan J. Greiman noted. Max and Erla Feinberg were survived by five grandchildren. All of the grandchildren married, but only one married a Jew. Several cases erupted against the estate plan. They were consolidated into one case and the question about the Jewish clause went to the appellate court. One of the grandchildren, Michele Trull, who had married a non-Jew, sued the coexecutors of the estates. Those executors happened to be Micheles father, her aunt and uncle. Michele claimed that the three had engaged in a conspiracy to evade estate taxes and had misappropriated millions of dollars from her grandparents estates. Apparently, the amounts left in the grandchildrens shares exceeded the Feinbergs generation skipping tax exemption. So the executors sought to enforce the Jewish clause to pull amounts back to the childrens generation, to which the executors belonged. The executors of the estate sought to have Micheles case dismissed because the Jewish clause deemed Michele to have predeceased her grandparents and therefore she had no interest in the estate. The appellate courts opinion explored the public policy argument voiding the Jewish clause. Such a clause is invalid if it encourages disruption of a family relationship, discourages formation or resumption of such a relationship, or seriously interferes with a beneficiarys freedom to obtain a divorce or exercise his or her freedom to marry. It is conceivable that such clauses could just as well result in the courts being required to enforce the worst bigotry imaginable, Justice Quinn noted. Courts are not well suited to decide all the various questions that might arise in the enforcement of such conditions. What would happen if one of Max and Erlas grandchildren initially married a non-Jewish person but subsequently married a Jewish person? Would the grandchild be resurrected upon the second marriage? Justice Greiman, on the other hand, who dissented, examined a multitude of cases from outside Illinois. Most were decided in the 1950s or earlier, but sided with enforcing such a clause. According to those cases, partial restraints on marriage are valid unless they are unreasonable, and therefore conditions on gifts prohibiting a beneficiary from marrying a specific individual have been upheld. Given the heated exchange between justices Greiman and Quinn, the Illinois Supreme Court agreed to hear the case. In its decision, the Illinois Supreme Court unanimously upheld the right of individuals to unequally bequeath assets based upon religious beliefs. The court cited that individuals could legally disinherit any family member who married outside of a particular faith, so long as such a method did not encourage divorce, which would be against public policy. Supreme Court Justice Rita Garman wrote, although those plans might be offensive to individual family members or to outside observers, Max and Erla were free to distribute their bounty as they saw fit and to favor grandchildren of whose life choices they approved. The court determined that at no point did the trusts encourage the grandchildren to divorce or remarry within their faith. Garmin noted that the trusts provisions were not intended to control, but rather made a bequest to reward, at the time of her death, those grandchildren whose lives most closely embraced the values that she and Max cherished. This important decision upholds a persons right to include conditions in his or her trust on inheritance. This decision likely extends beyond religious preferences. Trusts that have conditions imposed upon a drug addicted or alcoholic beneficiary prior to receiving their inheritance will also likely benefit from this ruling. Whether a Florida court would rule in the same way remains to be seen. I dont know of any cases in Florida that are similar, so although this case might not be legal precedent in Florida, the decision may sway a Florida court nonetheless. If you wish to include conditions on a beneficiarys inheritance, it is always wise to consult with your estate planning attorney to make sure that the provisions are properly drafted to minimize the chances that a beneficiary successfully challenges them.

Dont forget function while creating your look. The plan will serve to keep you on track during the process. Painting First Painting is the first thing you do after your plan is in place, but paint color is the last thing you select. Painting walls prior to selecting the colors for your furnishings and flooring severely limits your color selections on everything else. For beautiful color harmony, pull your wall and ceiling paint colors from your fabric and flooring selections. Incorrect Scale and Balance One of the most important design principles is scale. Furniture that was appropriate in another home with 8-foot ceilings may look like toy furniture in your new home with 14-foot ceilings. Each piece of furniture should be in scale with the rest of the pieces in the room, and to the overall size and proportion of the room. Out of Control Clutter Whether it is collections, family pictures, throw pillows or faux greenery, too much of anything is simply clutter. Select and display only a few important things and store the rest. Rotate items into your scheme later, if you wish. Less is definitely more. Furniture Mistakes Too large, too small, too delicate, too chunky or just the wrong look for the space. These mistakes can be very expensive and throw off your plan. Falling for Fads Fads are fun and fresh but also fleeting. Satisfy your whimsy with small purchases such as a wildly printed throw pillow, or an eyecatching piece of wall art that can be easily and inexpensively replaced when you tire of them. Palette The gorgeous color matches and mixes youve enjoyed for the last few seasons are probably on their way out. Avoid the mistake of choosing fabrics and paints that will begin to look old before their time.

41 ISLAND SUN JUNE 1, 2018Realtors Raise Funds For Water Quality EffortsOn May 9, the Sanibel & Captiva Islands Association of Realtors (SCIAR), held their annual End of Season Party and Water Quality Auction to support the water quality improvement and awareness efforts of the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF). Each year, the association, its members and affiliates raise money for a worthy cause. The money raised this year was donated to the SanibelCaptiva Conservation Foundation to support two of their water quality programs: SCCF Marine Labs RECON water quality monitoring sensor network and policy advocacy work on water quality and restoration. Special guest Rae Ann Wessel, natural resource policy director at SCCF, spoke to the attendees about how important water quality is to the unique and beautiful beaches and waterways. Wessel is a limnologist and marine scientist with over 30 years of experience working in the environmental field in South Florida. The event began with a nine-hole round of golf at The Sanctuary Golf Club and finished up with silent and live auctions with items donated by the islands local businesses, nonprofit organizations and association members. Everything from gift baskets and yearly memberships for activities, to vacation packages were bid on by attendees. Our End of Season Golf Outing and Auction was another success this year, said Sanibel & Captiva Islands Association of Realtors President Dustyn Corace. Traditionally, the proceeds of the auction go towards RPAC (Realtor Political Action Committee) to help protect private property rights. But this year, the event was dedicated to water quality, with proceeds going to SCCF. Water quality is something that affects the ecology of the islands, our community, and ultimately our local economy, and it is very important to the Sanibel & Captiva Islands Association of Realtors. We raised a lot of money for a good cause and everyone had a great time. In addition to supporting SCCF and water quality, we also surpassed this years RPAC goals, so it was a success for both causes. Many affiliate business partners not only donated auction items, but also supported the event as a sponsor. SCIAR would like to thank the following businesses and individuals for their support this year: Platinum Sponsors RE/MAX of the Islands Superior Title Services of Sanibel Gold Sponsorscontinued on page 42 Association president Dustyn Corace addresses the crowd photos provided From left, SCIAR President Dustyn Corace, Chris Kirchner and Chip Wolfe From left, realtor David Schuldenfrei, SCCF Natural Resource Policy Director Rae Ann Wessel and Florida Realtors District 5 Vice President Rick Fioretti Phone: (239)489.0442 Email: gregwegz@earthlink.net 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 Why Floridians Need Value-Added Hurricane Insurance: The 2018 Atlantic hurricane season is predicted to be above-normal by NOAA . 11-17 named storms, with 5-9 developing into hurricanes vs. an average season of 6 Cat4Home covers what your current policy does not Cat4Home can save homeowners thousands with total hurricane deductible protection and other out-of-pocket expense coverages Pays up to 100% of your current hurricane deductible Claims paid within 3-5 business days upon proof of loss $5,000 extra protection for damage not usually covered by your home-owners policy Its very affordable!

43 ISLAND SUN JUNE 1, 2018Sanibel Scouts Celebrate Another Year Of AdventureSanibel Island Pack and Troop 1740 had another adventure-packed year. They celebrated their accomplishment at an end-of-year ceremony at The Sanctuary Golf Club recently. Events this year included camping, visiting the Lee County Sheriffs Department, working on pioneering skills, community service with various island nonprofit organizations, and a live rodeo performance and camp out with the Seminoles in Immokalee, Florida. This summer, both Pack and Troop 1740 will again be participating in the July 4 parade. Additionally, both Pack and Troop are looking at summer camping trips and a Nature merit badge program for the Boy Scout Troop in conjunction with Kyle Sweet, golf course superintendent at The Sanctuary Golf Club. For more information, contact Cub Scout Pack Committee Chair Kara Stone at 223-4625 or Boy Scout Troop Committee Chair Kim Kouril at 233-4180.

Everblades Vie For Championship And Possession Of The Kelly Cupby Ed FrankYou will have the opportunity this weekend to witness championship hockey at Germain Arena as the Florida Everblades take on the Colorado Eagles in the finals of the ECHL and the honor of taking home the Kelly Cup. As we wrote this column early this week, the best-of-seven game finals was tied one game apiece with the home town Everblades splitting the first two games last week with the Eagles in Loveland, Colorado. After losing the first game of the finals 3-1, the Everblades bounced back with an exciting 4-3 victory last Friday when Mitchell Heard scored a dazzling goal with 36 seconds remaining in regulation to tie the series. The Kelly Cup Finals moved back here to Germain Arena this week for Games 3, 4 and 5 starting Wednesday night. Game 4 is tonight, Friday night, at 7:30 p.m. and Game 5 Saturday night at 7 p.m. Tickets are available online at Ticketmaster or at the Florida Community Bank box office located at Germain. If a Game Six is necessary, it will be played back in Colorado next Wednesday night, and if the title clash becomes tied at three games each, the seventh and deciding game will be skated here Saturday night, June 9. Tough Season For Local Baseball Team Historically, the Fort Myers Miracle baseball team, the Advanced A farm team of the Minnesota Twins, has been a winning team. That is not the case this year. As the week began, the Miracle had a season record of 18-28 and found themselves in last place in the Florida Gulf Coast League South Division, 11-1/2 games behind first-place Jupiter. The Miracle is home at Hammond Stadium for one game Saturday, to complete the May 9 suspended game with St. Lucie. Game time is 4 p.m. The team returns Monday for a seven-game home stand, four with Palm Beach and three with Dunedin. Confusing Move By Red Sox Or Was It? Local Boston Red Sox fans, and many others, could be confused by the move to designate for assignment first-baseman Hanley Ramirez. He was having a respectable year batting a decent .254 with 29 RBIs. The complicated deal involves millions of dollars was engineered by David Dombrowski, president of baseball operations for the Red Sox. On the surface, it was announced that the move makes room for the return to the roster of infielder Dustin Pedroia who has been injured. However, a vesting option in Rameriz contract calls for a payment of $22 million next year if he gets a certain amount of at-bats this year. Instead, the Red Sox chose to eat most of his 2018 contract of $15.25 million .A team apparently can pick up Ramirez, with the Red Sox paying the prorated remainder of his 2018 salary. The move has been criticized by many Red Sox fans.

Founded in 1968 by The Christian and Missionary Alliance, Shell Point is a nonprofit continuing care retirement community that offers independent retirement living, assisted living and skilled nursing to senior adults in an active, resort-style environment located in Fort Myers along the Caloosahatchee near Sanibel. This recognition is an opportunity for the county to recognize somebody that stands out in the community, and Shell Point has stood out in the community for several decades here in Southwest Florida, said Chairman Cecil Pendergrass. The quality of life they provide for their residents is unbelievable. County Commissioner Larry Kikers reading of the proclamation highlighted Shell Points numerous awards earned and the prestigious national attention that has brought positive recognition to Lee County and to the senior living industry. He also commended the level of quality and excellence Shell Point has demonstrated for the past 50 years. The resolution underscored Shell Points ability to deliver a vibrant lifestyle to more than 2,400 residents, fulfilling opportunities for volunteer service, and numerous recreational and social pursuits. Shell Point was also praised for being one of the leading employers in Lee County with more than 1,100 employees and also for its commitment to conserving, enhancing and protecting the natural resources of its location along the Caloosahatchee. As we celebrate our 50th anniversary year, it is a great honor for Shell Point to be recognized for its leadership and unwavering dedication to our residents and employees, said Shell Point President Martin Schappell.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 1, 201846 Doctor and DieticianImproving Life Expectancy With Lifestyle Changesby Ross Hauser, MD and Marion Hauser, MS, RDDid you know the life expectancy in America is shorter than almost every other high income country? It stands to reason that lifestyle habits would play a role in our health and well-being. But can we change our numbers if we change our habits? It seems we can. According to an April 2018 article in the journal Circulation, following five particular healthy lifestyle habits can make a pretty significant difference. Researchers looked at 34 years of information gathered on over 42,000 study participants. The five lifestyle habits they examined to determine impact on life expectancy: moderate to vigorous physical activity, moderate alcohol intake, eating a healthy diet, never smoking and maintaining a healthy body weight. These lifestyle habits were shown to increase life expectancy at age 50 by 12 years in men and 14 years in women. That is quite an impact. We agree that lifestyle choices play a huge role in our health and well-being, and this study really underscores the importance of choosing healthy habits. Adherence to healthy choices may be frustrating or difficult at times, since we are surrounded by fast food restaurants, excessive alcohol, sweets and packaged foods. Our busy schedules can make convenience foods look appealing. But stick to it! Spend time with friends who adhere to healthy lifestyles. In other situations, try to set a positive example for others. Create an environment that keeps you moving. Walk, bike, swim, garden and work outside. To cut some calories, try daily veggie swaps by exchanging a higher calorie food for an extra vegetable serving or two, such as carrots with hummus instead of crackers with hummus, or zucchini noodles instead of regular pasta. When we make health a priority, our bodies function optimally, enhancing our life expectancy. Healthy choices really do make a difference.

Mark OBrien Owner/Agent Trish Barbone Agent Justin Wheeler Agent We are HERE for all your insurance needs 2 Years Experience Beautifulife:Repairby Kay CaspersonRepair is a word that can be applied to every area of your life and is extremely important to do on a regular basis if you want to keep things moving in the direction of living your most balanced and beautiful life. What comes to mind for you when you say this word? Think about the various aspects of your life and apply it to those areas and I bet you will find some things that might need a little attention. You see, if you stay on top of those things instead of waiting too long, it will be easier to tackle them before they become bigger issues. I have named one of my most essential skincare products this word because it does so many things to repair your skin and at the same time helps you come up with the things that you will need to repair in your life. It is so easy to push aside issues because of the time commitment needed to clear them up, whether it be a relationship issue, a health problem or even something in your home that you need to fix. I suggest that every once in awhile, you make a list of the things that you would like to repair and then start to address them one by one, no matter what it takes to make it better. Below are a few examples for you to take a look at to stay on track: Emotional If you have been feeling emotionally defeated or drained, and have any thoughts of self-doubt, you will need to fill your mind with positive thoughts and encouraging words. You are responsible for keeping up with this by listening to positive, uplifting people, focusing on all the good and doing your daily affirmations. Physical Lets face it, there will be many health issues in life that we will need to address at certain times, but my advice to you is to meet them head on and dont ignore them or put them aside for another day. Avoiding things that you know need attention only makes them a more significant commitment down the road and may even take much longer to work through. Get your regular physicals and listen to your body, it will usually let you know when things are not quite right. Spiritual Are you feeling fulfilled and uplifted? Are your beliefs bringing you all that you need to grow and thrive in life? If you answered no to the above, then it is time to take a closer look and search for your path to fulfillment, love, joy, peace and all that spirituality should bring to you. Environmental There is always something in your environment in need of repair. Whether it is an issue in your home, yard or community, I can almost guarantee that there is a need to be addressed at all times. Stay on top of things and you will find that everything becomes a lot less work overall. Social OK, this is my favorite. Why wait for your relationships to completely fall apart when all you have to do is to stay on top of forgiveness, apologies, understanding and compromise? Sounds easy right, but unfortunately we tend to wait too long and then things are not so easy to fix. My affirmation for you this week is: I am addressing the areas of my life that need repair, and will focus on making them better every day.

SUN deaRPharmacistPainkillers Can Raise Homocysteineby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Readers: Its a Catch-22 if you are in pain and worried about opiates because then you will be switched to an NSAID drug like ibuprofen, naproxen, indomethacin, celecoxib or others. These medications are phenomenal for reducing inflammation and relieving swelling and pain. The trouble is that they are strong drug muggers of folate, your natural vitamin B9 nutrient. That, in and of itself, is enough for you to consider supplementing with natural folate. A folate deficiency compromises your ability to repair DNA, which can raise your risk for cancer. This can increase neuropathic nerve pain making you super uncomfortable in your own skin. Tingling, pins and needles, ant-bite sensation, hot water sensations and more can cause you mental and physical pain that is sometimes unimaginable. Painkillers in the NSAID category are known to negatively impact cardiovascular function, especially in middle-aged to older folks. This is, in part, due to the increase in homocysteine, which is due to the folate deficiency. You need adequate amounts of folate to break down homocysteine, and the drug-mugging (nutrient depletion) of folate causes a buildup in homocysteine which should be perceived as acid on your heart, blood vessels and brain. A buildup of homocysteine, will create more sulfur in your gut that leads to a sulfur burp which means you have a lot of belching and yet your digestive function tests are fine. Homocysteine is toxic to your brain, its not just about heart disease. Its a dangerous poison to your brain and no amount of folic acid fixes it. In fact, folic acid, the synthetic form of folate, can occupy the receptors on your cells, and cause less of the real deal (folate) to get on the cell receptor, and then into the cell. Homocysteine is a stunt-double for glutamate, which is an excitotoxin. You might think of MSG in the same way as you do glutamate. Symptoms like anxiety, insomnia, mood instability, dark depression, brain fog, brain zaps, migraines, ADHD, hypnic jerks and bone pain are all tell-tale signs of hyperhomocysteinemia. This means that your homocysteine is higher than 15 mol/L. It can be problematic for people in opiate and benzodiazepine withdrawal because the high homocysteine acts like an excitotoxin in the brain. You need to reduce homocysteine. Ive written a longer version of this article, and Ill email it to you if youd like it. Just sign up for my free newsletter, so I have you in my email database, and Ill send it out to you on Tuesday. In the meantime, the following nutrients are critical to reducing homocysteine: Vitamin B2, B9, B12 and B6 as well as zinc, magnesium, choline and betaine. Youll want to eat less meat and more salads and green veggies. Greens are very high in natural folate (vitamin B9), which drives the methylation pathway, which breaks down homocysteine. The problem with meat is that its very high in methionine, an amino acid that results in more homocysteine. So let the side dish be meat, and the main dish be greens.

He is now faced with many unresolved problems, and I am unsure how to begin to help him. Can you suggest some ways to help him?A: It is no surprise that your friend is having struggles overcoming his problems do to avoidance, which is the number one coping mechanism. The consequences of avoidance are that avoidant coping styles dont resolve issues. They dont become stronger or more confident. In the long run, avoidance leads to more stress, which has been linked to many negative outcomes such as: Weakened immunity (for example, more sickness because of cortisol, a stress hormone, weakens the immune system). Impaired relationships (problems that are not confronted and dealt with tend to persist). Poorer cognitive, job and athletic functioning (problem-solving, preparation and functioning require full focus). Mental disorders (those who are unwilling to stay in contact with distressing thoughts, memories, emotions and bodily sensations long enough to process them are more likely to suffer from PTSD, anxiety, depression and general distress). What I refer to as active coping is associated with opposite outcomes. Your friend can cultivate active coping through acknowledging the problems, actively accept them, turning toward them and inviting them in with compassionate acceptance, and a mindfulness of calmness and clarity without judgement and criticism. It is also good to reframe problems as challenges that can be overcome. Approach these challenges with optimism and be solution-oriented. Thinking about what his purpose is including meaning in life, his reason to thrive, can be used as a means to motivate him to act productively.

Hospital Earns Recognition As Asthma-FriendlyGolisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida is the newest hospital and the fourth in the state to be designated an Asthma-Friendly Hospital by the Florida Asthma Coalition. This state-wide award recognizes hospitals that create a safe and healthy environment for patients with asthma. The hospital had to meet specific criteria that were designed to improve asthma care and outcomes for patients while reducing emergency department visits and hospitalizations. The five criterion include: Professional development for hospital nurses and respiratory therapists on asthma management Professional development for hospital physicians on asthma management Asthma action plan Self-management education Multi-component home-based asthma education Hospital admissions due to asthma at Golisano Childrens Hospital have been declining for the past several years. In 2014, there were 611 children with asthma admitted to the hospital; that number significantly declined to 369 admissions in fiscal year 2017. Readmission rates dropped to nearly half in the same period from 5.7 percent in 2014 to 2.8 percent in 2017. The decreases are a direct result of an asthma prevention program that helps patients and families better understand the disease, the triggers and how to manage medications. Lee Health already helped day care centers and school districts throughout Southwest Florida work toward asthmafriendly designation. Marked by episodes of coughing, wheezing, chest tightness and breathlessness, asthma is common among children. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention note that, on average in a classroom of 30 children, about four are likely to have asthma. It is important for children to understand what triggers an attack and how to take their medications and treat their asthma. To learn more about the asthmafriendly recognition, visit www.tinyurl.com/ gchasthma. If you have specific questions about asthma education opportunities for children and adults, call Teresa Summe at 343-1043.

CLASSIFIED CLASSIFIED www.islandsunnews.com PLACE CLASSIFIED ISLAND SUN JUNE 1, 201854 Landing a big fish from the beach can be hard on the fish. Dragging a fish up onto the sand if youre going to release it is not an option as it usually damages or kills the fish. Hold the fish in the water while you unhook it if youre going to release it. The less you can touch a fish before release the better for the fish. If you want a picture with the fish, support it as you lift it out of the water and do it quickly. Before releasing, revive the fish while holding it in the water; moving it slowly back and forth so water goes over its gills. The fish will let you know when its ready to swim off. Florida just recently changed the regulations on fishing from shore. Florida residents as well as out of state visitors need a fishing license to fish from shore.

Top 10 Real Estate SalesCourtesy of Royal Shell Real Estate 55 ISLAND SUN JUNE 1, 2018 My Stars FOR WEEK OF JUNE 4, 2018Aries (March 21 to April 19) An apparent act of injustice might turn out to be either an error in judgment or just plain stupidity. So calm down and cool off, and let the explanations roll out. Taurus (April 20 to May 20) Its upsetting when someone you trusted might have failed you. But with new opportunities ahead, youll soon be too busy to feel even a wee bit sorry for yourself. Gemini (May 21 to June 20) A sense of uncertainty could be a good reason to change your position on an important matter. Someone close might try to talk you out of it, but its your decision to make. Cancer (June 21 to July 22) Being too zealous in pursuing your goal could create some resistance. Try to be more mindful of what you ask people to do, and theyll be more likely to do it. Leo (July 23 to August 22) Things change as you go from being ignored to being Lionized once again. This is a good time to reintroduce those previously rejected ideas to a more receptive audience. Virgo (August 23 to September 22) Someone new in your life creates both anticipation as well as anxiety. Avoid the potential for misunderstandings by watching what you say and how you say it. Libra (September 23 to October 22) Watch your budget so that you dont overspend now and have less to invest when the time is right later on. Arrange to share your weekend with someone special. Scorpio (October 23 to November 21) The temptation to involve yourself in a friends or family members personal problems is laudable. But get the facts before you make a firm commitment. Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21) You might be upset by some of your critics. But most of your associates continue to keep the faith in your ability to get the job done, and done well. Capricorn (December 22 to January 19) Youve reached an important point in your ongoing pursuit of your goals. You might now want to consider letting someone you trust join you on your journey. Aquarius (January 20 to February 18) Youve been going through a spate of uncertainty involving people you care for. But it might be time to take a stand on a position you feel sure you can defend. Pisces (February 19 to March 20) Treading water keeps you busy, but it wont get you where you need to go. Time to stop making excuses and to start moving ahead toward your goals. It was British writer and humorist Jerome K. Jerome who made the following sage observation: It is impossible to enjoy idling thoroughly unless one has plenty of work to do. There is no fun in doing nothing when you have nothing to do. Wasting time is merely an occupation then, and a most exhausting one. Idleness, like kisses, to be sweet must be stolen. Europe is the only continent without a desert. Even icy Antarctica has deserts including the worlds largest cold desert. Modern dietary trends notwithstanding, raw vegetables have not always enjoyed the healthsome reputation they now have. In medieval times, in fact, veggies would always be cooked; raw ones were considered to be bad for the humors. Have you ever heard of an adhocracy? If youre like many frustrated workers these days, you may be employed by one. An adhocracy is an organization characterized by lack of planning, responding to problems as they emerge rather than anticipating and avoiding them. In La Paz, Bolivia, you can find one of the most unusual prisons in the world. At San Pedro Prison, inmates have to purchase their cells. Those who are well off financially can buy private cells with bathrooms, television and kitchens. Those who are less lucky must share tiny rooms. You might be surprised to learn that the worlds most-translated author, by far, is Agatha Christie. Jules Verne ranks second, followed closely by William Shakespeare. Its interesting to note that three of the top 10 Enid Blyton, Hans Christian Anderson and Jacob Grimm wrote works for children. The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.
