Scholarship recipients were announced, and over breakfast the students and their parents discussed with Kiwanis members their plans for future education. The clubs scholarship program has been in operation for 12 years, helping worthy local students achieve their higher education goals. This year, the program awarded a total of $38,000 in scholarships to 23 students, more than double the amount awarded the year the program first began. Over the past 12 years, the program has provided $338,000 in scholarship support to 251 deserving students. Kiwanis President Jason Smith emphasized the growing importance of the program. The mission of Kiwanis is to provide support to the youth of our community, and with the increasing importance of advanced education, our scholarship program is one of the most valuable things our club does, said Smith. This years 23 scholarship recipients are headed to 10 different colleges and universities, mostly within Florida and the Southeast, but some traveling as far the New England area.

In cooperation with the Sanibel Sea School, kids in kindergarten through fourth grade are taking part in a weekly snorkeling class in one of the recreation centers pools. On June 14, marine science educator Emmett Horvath shared his knowledge of snorkeling, explaining how to properly use the equipment and the importance of using The Buddy System while snorkeling. Weve offered snorkeling for the past few years here at camp, said Dave DeFonzo, youth program coordinator. Its a great introduction to the water, especially for the kids who are just learning to swim. And for kids who are already great swimmers, theyre learning a practical skill that comes without a great expense.

Middle, high schoolers and alumni worked tirelessly volunteering in various ways during SCCs Vacation Bible School for children from June 4 to 8. Students used their gifts, talents and technical skills for audio visual needs, demonstrated exciting science experiments and adventurous games, performed in skits and puppet shows, and used their culinary skills to provide dinner and creative desserts to over 100 kids and volunteers. These teens wore many different hats, were extremely flexible and never grumbled when asked to do menial or humbling tasks. Each day, these students would greet preschoolers to fourth graders with enthusiasm, high energy and friendly smiles. Rolling River Rampage was the theme for this years VBS, and H2O Ministry Youth Group volunteers rocked it.

Last month, Laura DeBruce and Jeffrey Blackman, owners of Sanibel Carts, LLC, submitted an application to open a low-speed vehicle rental business within the Palm Ridge Place Shopping Center. They planned on an inventory of seven streetlegal, solar/electric vehicles (five of them four-passenger vehicles, with the other two six-passenger vehicles) that would be rented out of Suite 15 of the commercial building. On May 22, commissioners spent more than two and a half hours deliberating the matter, talking about the specifics of the business, whether it was in conflict with the objectives of the Sanibel Plan, whether it met conditions set forth in the Land Development Code and a number of safety concerns. Staff finds that the proposed lowspeed vehicles contain similarities to the means of transportation discussed in this statement, and therefore should be viewed in the same light as having the potential to exacerbate traffic delays, City Planner Josh Ooyman told the commission last month. The safety hazard aspect also bears consideration as low-speed vehicles could create unsafe situations on roadways with respect to faster traffic. Another objection raised in the staff report was that the proposed business would not comply with the Sanibel Plans goal of reducing the volume of traffic on Sanibel. Staff finds that the proposed rental vehicles, although battery-powered and more environmentally-friendly than the common automobile, will still provide increased opportunities for automobile usage on-island and place additional demand on the natural infrastructure and roadway systems, Ooyman added. Following some additional comments from the applicants and members of the audience, commissioners voted 6 to 1 in favor of denying the application. Commissioner Roger Grogman cast the lone dissenting vote on May 22. Last week, Senior Planner Roy Gibson reintroduced Resolution 18-008 to officially deny the conditional use application. He stated that no additional testimony would be provided by city staff nor from the applicants, who informed Gibson they would be unable to attend the hearing. No additional public comment was received, he noted. Resident Larry Schopp was the lone audience member to speak. The applicants made it a point to say that their (slow-moving rental carts) arent automobiles, and that the Sanibel Plan is interested in restricting automobile traffic, he said, explaining that automobiles are generally known as a four-wheeled public conveyance of people that is self-propelled either by an internal combustion engine or battery. Thats what these vehicles are. With no additional testimony, Commission Vice Chair Dirk DeWerff called for the public hearing to close. I dont agree that its against the Sanibel Plan, said Commissioner Chuck Ketteman. My concern is only about the safety of these vehicles, and Im denying it because of that issue. Commissioner Richard Johnson made a motion to approve the resolution, which was seconded by Grogman and passed with a 5 to 0 vote. Commission chair Dr. Phillip Marks and Commissioner Matt Kirschner were absent and excused from the meeting. If I could be convinced that they were safe, then I would vote in favor of the application, added Ketteman. In other business, commissioners approved a corrected draft resolution to grant a variance that will allow a boat dock to be relocated closer than 15 feet from the side property lines as extended into the water, the installation of a new elevatorstyle boat lift to extend approximately 9.2 feet farther than the maximum permitted waterward extension, and allowing the boat lift to be located closer than 15 feet from the extended side property lines. The request was submitted last month by property owners Randy Wayne White and Wendy Webb for their dock parcel located at 6428 Pine Avenue. With the public hearing closed, commissioners voted 5 to 0 in favor of granting the variance. The Sanibel-Captiva Optimist Club is again sponsoring its Junior Optimist Angler Society for kids. Each week, the clubs volunteers and Sanibel Recreation Center councilors take a group of kids fishing to learn how, to show them new techniques and to have fun. The kids are grouped depending on age and experience. Fishing is done both from the shore and on boats with Tarpon Bay Explorers and Adventures in Paradise. In August, the kids are treated to a end of season picnic on the Sanibel Causeway. Many thanks were shared with sponsors Baileys General Store, Tarpon Bay Explorers, Adventures in Paradise as well as members of the San-Cap Optimist Club and volunteers. Other Junior Optimists activities include archery, basketball and Free Lunch Fridays. All current Junior Optimists activities require membership through the Sanibel Recreation Center.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 22, 201810 SCCF, Realtors Join Push To Stop Lake Dischargesby Jeff LysiakLess than one week after Mayor Kevin Ruane and members of the Sanibel City Council called for an action plan to stop harmful freshwater flows out of Lake Okeechobee and into the Caloosahatchee watershed, officials with the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) have joined the fight. Record-setting rainfall the last two weeks of May flooded the entire Greater Everglades region, a June 13 post on SCCFs Facebook page reads, in part. To manage lake water levels, the Corps of Engineers began Lake Okeechobee releases on June 1 resulting in estuary flows two to three times the harmful volume. The Caloosahatchee estuary habitats, estuarine and marine organisms experience harm from high flows that cause low salinity when freshwater flows at the Franklin Lock near Alva reach 2,800 cfs (cubic feet per second), equivalent to 1.26 million gallons per minute or 1.81 trillion gallons per day. According to SCCF, the Caloosahatchee estuary has been experiencing increasing levels of harmful flows since heavy rainfalls began on May 15. The first two weeks, flows were watershed runoff from Hendry and Glades counties, with no discharges from Lake Okeechobee. However, the lake discharges that started on June 1 nearly tripled the harmful high flows to the estuary (over 3.68 million gallons per minute, or 5.3 trillion gallons per day), dumping dark fresh water and suddenly dropping salinities in the estuary all the way to the mouth of the river at Shell Point. The consequence of this sudden, drastic and prolonged salinity drop has been a massive die off of estuarine clams and oysters at Iona just upstream of Shell Point and is fueling freshwater cyanobacteria, including Microcystis, that is visible beneath the water surface from Beautiful Island by I-75 to Iona Cove, said SCCFs post. This current event is the direct result of managing water selectively to allow agricultural landowners to dump their floodwater into Lake Okeechobee and into publicly funded stormwater treatment areas, thus forcing discharges harmful to public resources. The call for action was also joined by members of the Sanibel & Captiva Islands Association of Realtors. As a result of the recent rains, the water quality in and around the island of Sanibel has degraded. The City of Sanibel and its residents have had enough, the organizations website shared on June 8, along with a request to contact the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the South Florida Water Management District. Their decisions to release massive discharges using the Caloosahatchee River are damaging our island property values, local economy, employment and our very way of life. The City of Sanibels Natural Resources Department Director James Evans recommended discontinuing freshwater releases from Lake Okeechobee until flows at the Franklin Lock (S-79) drop below 3,000 cfs, updating the Lake Okeechobee Regulation Schedule (LORS) and Adaptive Protocols, and identify other places to send water besides to the west and east coast estuaries. We need flow monitoring stations deployed within the Caloosahatchee watershed tributaries to determine where the water is coming from and what projects are needed to curtail it, Evans told the council earlier this month. After discussing the Lake Okeechobee discharges during their June 5 meeting, the Sanibel City Council issued a call for action the following day. Among the people targeted for messages urging the stop of high volume freshwater releases are members of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, including Col. Jason Kirk, district commander and district engineer (email: and Lt. Col. Jennifer Reynolds, deputy district commander for South Florida (email: Jennifer.A.Reynolds@usace.; members of the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD), including Executive Director Ernie Marks (email:, Governing Board Chairman Federico Fernandez (email: and Local Governing Board Representatives Rick Barber (email: and Jaime Weisinger (email: jweisinger@ In addition, the city recommended contacting Governor Rick Scott (email: and Drew Bartlett, deputy secretary ecosystems restoration for the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (email: drew. We need to express our strenuous objection to water managers and elected representatives because these harmful flows are the direct consequence of agricultural discharges that have resulted in harmful flows to the Caloosahatchee and St Lucie, without consideration of the flood consequences on these coastal ecosystems, SCCFs Facebook post urged its supporters. We ask water managers to identify these conditions and start requiring all landowners to manage stormwater on their own land, not dump it into the lake, not usurp the entire capacity of publicly funded stormwater treatment areas that harm public resources. It is past time to change the system.

But currently, the FISH of SanCap Food Pantry needs your help. The FISH Food Pantry makes a real difference to our neighbors and those that work on our islands. But during the summer months, when many return to their up north homes, the nonprofit struggles. Summer months are particularly difficult for us, said FISH President and CEO Maggi Feiner. Many of our neighbors needing a hand up lose work hours in our off-season months. Yet their bills still need to be paid, and they still need to feed their children, who are now at home and not benefiting from school provided meals. We try to purchase what we can on a limited budget to help our neighbors. Volunteers say normally the shelves flow with food, especially during seasonal (October through April) months. Recently, though, theres not been much to stock, and people leave with less than they had hoped for. And thats hard on everyone, especially the children and elderly folks that visit the pantry and rely on certain items being available. Maybe its just this time of year, but its been the last several months that weve struggled to keep our pantry stocked, said Maria Espinoza, FISH Walk-In Center manager. And with the end of the Sanibel Island Farmers Market season, we dont see any fresh fruits or vegetables being donated, which so many looked forward to and needed to keep their household nutritionally balanced. We are thankful for those that host collection/drop off sites as well as food drives throughout the year on behalf of F.I.S.H. Please donate unopened, unexpired and nonperishable items to the FISH Food Pantry at one of the collection sites below. If your business or establishment would like to lend a hand by becoming a FISH Food Pantry collection site, contact Maria Espinoza, Walk-In Center manager, at 472-4775.

by Gerri ReavesFalse hawksbeard ( Youngia japonica ) is a non-native wildflower present in most Florida counties and throughout the southeastern U.S. A native of Asia, it is also called oriental false hawksbeard, Japanese hawkweed, rocketweed, or Asiatic false hawksbeard. It is common in disturbed sites, lawns and even sidewalk cracks. It blooms all year, the slender leafless stem arising from the center of a rosette of lobed oblong basal leaves. The stem can be up to two feet tall. The leaves are prominently veined and reach up to 10 inches long. Ruffled or curled edges give them a wrinkled look. The petals, or ray flowers, are five-toothed, which gives them a fringed effect. They measure only about a centimeter across. Flowers on one plant are often in various stages of blooming. When it goes to seed, the clusters of flowers resemble dandelion puffs but are only about one-fifth of that size. The plant has a milky sap. The dry one-seeded fruit has a ring of stiff hairs that act as a parachute, dispersing the seeds on air. A short taproot makes it easy to pull up this weed, but it spreads so easily that eradication is difficult, nevertheless. Some homeowners abandon the herbicides and enjoy the flowers that provide nectar for bees. If you love asters, there are plenty of native ones to choose from, so replacing this weed with a pretty native aster is simple. One way to dispense of this weed is to eat it, for its a potherb. But be warned -some people find the leaves quite bitter. False hawksbeard was used medicinally in China to treat colds, diarrhea and sore throats. It has shown promise in the treatment of leukemia.

First Week Of Summer Camp A Successsubmitted by Leah BierySanibel Sea School kicked off the summer camp season on June 4 with Hammerhead Week at the organizations Sanibel Flagship Campus, and Mangrove Tree Crab Week at its Sundial Beach Resort & Spa location. Both programs were a success, and campers enjoyed five days of oceanbased activities and adventures. Hammerhead Week participants learned all about these sharks with crazy-shaped heads, building periscopes to better understand hammerheads vision, canoeing in prime shark habitat, and making their own mass migrations. They also had a chance to dissect a dogfish the hammerheads much smaller relative. The campers are always amazed by how a sharks skin feels, what the gills and internal organs look like, and the similarities and differences between chondrichthians and humans, said counselor Sam Lucas. Mangrove Tree Crab Week was all about tiny, omnivorous tree climbers. Campers played a game to practice their mangrove species identification, scurried like mangrove crabs in a beach ball relay race, played crab soccer and kickball, and snorkeled among the mangroves to take a closer look at the creature of the week. As usual, both weeks also included surfboard paddling, making ocean art, and spending time with friends. Sanibel Sea School is a 501(c)3 nonprofit whose mission is to improve the oceans future, one person at a time. To learn more, visit www.

Big High Tides Offer Lots Of Optionsby Capt. Matt MitchellCalm conditions and great tides made for an awesome week of charters. Snook and large mangrove snapper kept my clients busy. The tide pattern we have been on for more than a week now is as good as it gets with a huge high incoming tide coming right at midday. Three foot tides like these dont come very often, and when they do, it offers anglers lots of options with many mangrove islands becoming reachable and very fishable. During the morning, lower incoming tide areas around the passes have been the places to be with some of the best catch-and-release snook action of the year now happening. Along with the snook, we did mix it up with a few trout, gag grouper, mangrove snapper and even a few Spanish mackerel all right in the passes. As the tide really starts to flood in and the current gets too fast to pass fish, Ive been moving to the areas both inside and just outside the passes to keep this nonstop snook bite going. During the last few hours of the incoming tide, the options are endless with the water being so high. Oyster bars have been a good choice with the ones on the western side of the sound bringing the better snook action. When fishing these bars, either the action is almost every cast or not at all. If you throw a few baits and dont get bit, its time to move. Several of my favorite oyster bars resulted in double and even triple hook-ups on snook for 20 to 30 minutes. What these snook lack in size they make up for in sheer numbers, and when there are so many smaller males around its only a matter of time till you hook into a much bigger female. Mangrove islands around St James city, south Matlacha Pass and the mouth of the river have also been on fire during the very top of the tide. Both the very end of the incoming tide and the first hour of the outgoing tide has resulted in some crazy action on big mangrove snapper up to 16 inches, giant drag-screaming jacks and snook. I just dont fish many of these places in these areas until we have these super high tides. Watching 10-pound-plus jacks and big mangrove snapper crash bait on the surface is a sight to be seen when this bite goes off. As we are getting later through the month of June, more and more large mangrove snapper are being caught throughout the sound. The fish houses, docks of the intercoastal, deeper mangrove shorelines and any submerged structure can be just loaded with big schools of these hard-fighting fish of summer. Live free-lined shiners or small pinfish are key to catching these mangs along with a small light wire hook and light fluorocarbon leader as these snapper have really good eyesight. Limits of these excellent table fish will become more and more common over the next few months and become my go-to fish when my clients want to take home fillets. Although I did not tarpon fish this week, I sure did see lots of them all through the southern sound. Most days while catching bait up off Regla Island, I would see rolling fish in the slick calm morning conditions then, while returning to St James City or the causeway area, there where rolling fish south of the powerlines in the deeper water. Then when heading to Punta Rassa, I would go under the C-span of the causeway, and there they were again. After not being able to find any tarpon for the last few weeks in the southern sound, I was making a run to Foster Point and north to locate them. Now that these fish do not have all the boat pressure on them that they did through mid-April, this bite will only get better. Capt. Matt Mitchell has been fishing local waters since he moved to Sanibel in 1980. He now lives in St. James City and works as a back country fishing guide.

CROW Case Of The Week: Loggerhead Sea Turtle by Bob PetcherThe loggerhead sea turtle ( Caretta caretta ) is the most common sea turtle in Florida. In 1987, there were nearly 96,912 nests reported in the state by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Compare that to the 53,102 Green sea turtle nests reported in the state last year, and you can see the nearly 2-to-1 ratio between the most common and second most common. While the numbers appear impressive, these marine reptiles are still considered an endangered species and protected by state law. Loggerhead sea turtles are so named due to their large blockheads to go with their strong jaw lines. They have a heart-shaped upper shell and thick front flippers. At CROW, an adult male loggerhead sea turtle was admitted after it was reported to be struggling and rolling over in the water just offshore of Sanibel. The turtle was rescued by Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) staff. During the intake exam, the patient weighed in at about 239 pounds. Based on its clinical signs, CROW medical staff stated the turtle was suspected to have been affected by brevetoxicosis, also known as red tide poisoning. Since this past October, we have admitted 274 patients for suspected brevetoxicosis; 229 of those have been admitted since January 1 of this year, said Dr. Robin Bast, CROW veterinary intern. Typically, brevetoxicosis cases make up approximately 10 percent of our caseload annually. Dr. Bast explained that larger sea life like a sea turtle is not necessarily less susceptible to red tide poisoning than a small fish, We see a wide variety of clinical presentations depending on the species affected, she said. For example, if they have another concurrent medical condition, that makes them more susceptible or are unable to clear the toxin. Severity of clinical signs has not been directly correlated with patient weight or amount of toxin found in the blood. The toxin remains in the environment and food chain long after the algal bloom itself resolves. The prehistoric patient also had some other minor health problems that were addressed. Epibiota, or external barnacles and algae buildup, were found on the turtles shell. This indicates the turtle may have been debilitated for some time, said Dr. Bast. It is easily removed within 48 hours of admission by placing the patient in fresh water. The turtle was given ceftazidime to prevent complications with possible aspiration due to rolling over in the water. Ceftazidime is an injectable antibiotic. In this turtles case, we suspected aspiration and potential pneumonia due to its history of being upside down in the surf, said Dr. Bast. Additionally, patients with brevetoxicosis get ileus, or slowing of their gastrointestinal tract, and antibiotics are indicated to treat this as well. After two weeks at CROW, the loggerhead sea turtle appears to be returning to good health. The loggerheads bloodwork has improved; he is swimming well in the tank, and has started to eat on his own, added Dr. Bast. Bloodwork will be reassessed this week to determine a plan for potential release.

Shell Of The WeekOyster Dove Snailby Jos H. Leal, PhD, BaileyMatthews National Shell Museum Science Director and CuratorAt about 6 mm (0.23 inch), the Oyster Dove Snail, Parvanachis ostreicola (GB Sowerby III, 1882), is another of the small-size local dove snails (family Columbellidae). Its shell is very similar to that of the Obese Dove Snail, Parvanachis obesa (CB Adams, 1845), a species covered in this column in February 2015. This latter species, however, has a more slender shell, lighter color, and less conspicuous spiral cords on the shell sculpture. As other species of the family do, Oyster Dove Snails live in association with seaweed.

LUNCH SERVED M-F 11:30 AM 2:30 PM Paddling Fanatics: An Interview With John Houstonby Ocean Tribe PaddlersJohn Houston is the owner of Adventure Sea Kayak and SUP on Captiva. A true outdoorsman, when hes not paddling, he enjoys traveling, surfing, yoga, snorkeling and free diving, fishing and living life to the fullest. We sat down with him to talk about the joy of spending time on the water. How many years have you been paddling? For as long as I can remember. I started paddling professionally and taking people on trips when I was 18 that was 22 years ago. Who introduced you to paddling? My father, Brian Houston, has always been involved in the paddle sports industry and started my sister and me out young. He was the founder and mastermind behind the Captiva Sea Kayak Classic, an annual race, and took us on paddling trips all over Florida. We spent every Sunday paddling from our house on Dinkins Bayou to Blind Pass for fun beach days. What is your favorite place to paddle? In and around Buck Key. I also enjoy exploring Blind Pass Channel, Roosevelt Channel, Wulfert Point, Dinkins Bayou, and the grass flats and oyster bars around Sanibel and Captiva. What do you always bring when you paddle? Water, snacks, sunscreen, and a telephone or radio for emergency communications. An extra paddle, a sponge or bilge pump, and a flashlight because it gets late real quick. Most memorable paddling experience? Every paddling experience is memorable, but my favorite is to paddle in the middle of the night on a full or new moon, under the stars. Always with friends or family. Why do you love to paddle? It gives me an opportunity to have a little freedom, and to be by myself. To get a little exercise, clear my head and remind me where I came from. The ocean has provided me with everything I have ever needed in my whole life. A job, food, a place to explore, happiness and sadness. I love being on the water. It brings me back home to where it all began. Ocean Tribe Paddlers is a club that helps the Southwest Florida paddling community better explore, enjoy and understand the ocean. Visit www. or follow on Facebook to learn more. Loggerhead Released On Fort Myers BeachOn June 12, the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) released a sub-adult loggerhead sea turtle on Fort Myers Beach with the help of Turtle Time, Inc. volunteers. The volunteer group rescued the turtle on May 29 when it was found floating upside down in the surf. It was transported to CROW where it received care and treatment for brevetoxicosis, also known as red tide poisoning. Before being released, the turtle was tagged with a passive integrated transponder (PIT) tag and a flipper tag on each of its front flippers. This is the fifth sea turtle in 2018 to be treated and released from the clinic for red tide poisoning.

The cover of the 2019 calendar features a spectacular photograph of a roseate spoonbill in the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge by local nature photographer Robert Kimbrell. The back cover includes a beautiful Bowmans Beach sunset by longtime Sanibel visitor, natural history photographer and writer Lynn Stone. This edition of the calendar spotlights six of the islands year-round avian residents and three juvenile alligators photographed in Sanibel Gardens Preserve. Also pictured are seasonal visitors to the beaches; a nesting least tern, a lesser black-backed gull and a migrating black-throated blue warbler. Rounding out the monthly photographs are a tropical checkered skipper in the Bailey Tract and a scrawled cowfish on a coral reef in the gulf off Sanibel. Fowler said, I love showing both seasonal, migrating and year-round birds and animals on our islands in the same calendar edition. It shows the great diversity of wildlife we are so fortunate to share the island with. Fowler has added another writer for the photo narratives, SCCF Shorebird Program Coordinator Audrey Albrecht. Fowler said, I am very excited to have Audrey as a contributing writer for the calendar. Her extensive knowledge of birds and experience in the field will add a wealth of knowledge and interest to the photo narratives. Added to the writing of long-time island residents Betty Anholt and Charles LeBuff, the calendar contains a wealth of information and writing styles. Photographers featured in this edition are Theresa Baldwin, Marianne Bargiotti, Cliff Beittel, Dick Fortune, Peter Hawrylyshyn, Robert Kimbrell, Sara Lopez, Lorraine Sommer, Lynn Stone and Don Thompson. Created from an idea that took seed during my island experiences since I first came to Sanibel in the early 70s, I have tried every year to put together a calendar that truly shows the natural beauty of the islands. It continues to be my goal each year to publish a calendar that not only is beautiful and useful, but also promotes wildlife conservation through interest, information and education, Fowler said. Again this year, the calendar will be available upon request with a shipping envelope made from recycled paper from the press set-up. The calendar retails for $14.95 and is sold throughout Southwest Florida in fine book stores and gift shops. For mail orders, send $14.95 (plus $2 shipping and handling) to: Sanibel-Captiva Nature Calendar, P.O. Box 356, Sanibel, FL 33957.

Yachtsman Dr. Sanibel Island Taste of the Islands Peoples Choice Award Winner Seven Continuous Years r fntbb frr Sanibel and Captiva Islands Most Exciting Boat Tour Circumnavigating Sanibel & Captiva Islands with Dolphins SANIBEL THRILLER CRUISES SANIBEL THRILLER CRUISES r r Conservancy Adds Sea Turtle To AmbassadorsThe Conservancy of Southwest Florida has announced the name for a new baby loggerhead sea turtle, which now has a starring role in the Dalton Discovery Center. The loggerhead, named NIN, weighed in at 16.4 ounces and measured 23 centimeters across and 22 centimeters in width at a ceremony on June 14. NIN is an animal ambassador at the Conservancys Nature Center, where visitors will have a unique opportunity to observe the sea turtle in his habitat while learning about the species until he is large enough to be released into the wild. Our animal ambassadors serve an important role in helping educate visitors about both native and non-native species living in Southwest Florida, said Rob Moher, president and CEO of the Conservancy. Loggerhead sea turtles are a threatened species in Florida, and the Conservancy is committed to monitoring and protecting the turtles nesting on our local beaches. NIN is part of a Sea Turtle Sex Determination Study by Florida Atlantic University. Nests were incubated at various temperatures. This specific turtle was incubated at low temperature and low humidity to test how these variables impact the sex of the turtles. Tests confirmed NIN is a male. Since the sea turtle programs inception in 1982, the Conservancy has documented more than 284,000 loggerhead hatchlings from Keewaydin Island reaching waters of the Gulf of Mexico, and another 78,000 from Naples City Beach. Interestingly, the vast majority of hatchlings on Keewaydin beaches are male in an otherwise female-dominated South Florida population, said Dr. Jeff Schmid, Conservancy of Southwest Florida science research manager. Our beaches are that much more important because the males that are produced help maintain the overall population. As the first known male sea turtle ambassador that the Conservancy has welcomed, NIN serves as a reminder of the importance of maintaining beaches and protecting nests to preserve gender balance. A higher nest temperature results in more females while lower temperature causes a shift toward males, giving rise to the saying hot chicks and cool dudes. NIN is a unique name for the Conservancys loggerhead and carries a special story. A guest at the Conservancys 2018 Magic Under the Mangroves gala and auction purchased the sea turtles naming rights. The winning bidder, Barbara Chur, came to Magic Under the Mangroves hoping to win the naming rights and support the Conservancy sea turtle research. Churs daughter and eight of her friends visited Naples this winter. While vacationing we got to talking about the sea turtles and the work the Conservancy is doing and how important it is, Chur said. When I won, I wanted a name that would represent the wonderful time the nine women had while visiting.continued on page 26 From left, Barry Kelleher, Conservancy president and CEO Rob Moher, Ruth Bawden and Conservancy supporter Barbara Chur photos provided Conservancy Animal Care Specialist Samantha Arner with NIN, the new ambassador loggerhead sea turtle

25 ISLAND SUN JUNE 22, 2018The Community HouseThe Papaya by Resident Chef Jarred HarrisThe papaya, also known as pawpaw, mamao or tree melon, is the fruit of the carica papaya plant or tree. This tree is actually a giant herb that is native to Mexico and Central America but grown in tropical climates around the world. The fruit was introduced to the Hawaiian Islands in the 1800s and it was the first variety of papaya to be genetically modified. In fact, in 1990, the Hawaiian papaya was the first genetically modified food to enter the American food chain. The Mexican papaya and the Hawaiian papaya are the most common types of papaya found in the United States. The Mexican papaya is the largest of the two varieties, weighing up to 10 pounds. The Hawaiian papayas are the smallest variety of papaya and are more likely to be found in supermarkets and shops. The pulp of both varieties ranges in color from, red, orange, pink or even yellow. There are many small black seeds within the center of papayas and these seed are edible. They have a peppery flavor and can be dried and used as a black pepper substitute. Papayas have a high concentration of vitamins A and C. They also contain dietary fiber, riboflavin, calcium, iron and large amounts of papain, which is a power enzyme that can break down meat fibers and is the active ingredient found in most meat tenderizers sold in grocery stores. I grow papaya in my garden because I enjoy the health benefits of the fruit and the plant is beautiful. A word of caution. The papaya tree and fruit contain sap which is latex based. If you have latex allergies, this fruit might cause an allergic reaction.

Artists should create pieces that showcase traditional Mexican sugar skulls merged with the artists aesthetic. Categories are sculpture, painting (including oil, acrylic, collage, watercolor and mixed media), photography, prints and drawings. The show runs from October 5 through November 3. In many parts of Mexico, South America and the United States, Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a time to remember and celebrate the lives of friends and family. More about reveling life than remembering death, this unique day encourages people to connect with loved ones while reflecting on the ties that bind the past to present. Community participation is a powerful part of this holiday, said exhibitions coordinator Krista Johnson. Thats why were calling on local artists to contribute to this lively and fun exhibit. The opening reception will be held on Friday, October 5 from 5 to 7 p.m. with awards at 6 p.m. Opening receptions are free and open to the public and include light refreshments. While gallery admission is free, a $5 suggested donation keeps Alliance programming affordable and accessible. There will be a $250 prize for Best in Show, $125 for second place and $75 for third place. Artists may submit up to three works for consideration. All entries must be submitted online no later than September 20. The Alliance for the Arts is located at at 10091 McGregor Boulevard in Fort Myers. For more information, to download the prospectus or submit artwork, visit sugarskulls or call 939-2787. From page 23ConservancyWe are selected the name NIN to represent Nine in Naples. This year marks the start of the 36th season of the Conservancys Sea Turtle Monitoring and Protection Program, a program that was formed in 1982. Conservancy researchers have documented more than 284,000 hatchlings of primarily loggerhead sea turtles. Only 1 in 1,000 sea turtles survives to adulthood. Each one that is protected is significant to the survival of this threatened species. The Conservancys first priority is to protect the turtles nests from predation by caging them. Otherwise, raccoons would destroy 85 to 90 percent of their nests, and few, if any, hatchlings would ever reach the Gulf of Mexico. The Conservancy also measures and documents each turtle with a numbered tag for identification and tracking of turtles and their nests. Since sea turtles typically return to the same beach to nest every 2 to 4 years, the Conservancy now has reproductive life histories of some Keewaydin turtles that go back more than 30 years. All of this protection for the thousands of hatchlings that begin their lives in Southwest Florida would not be possible without support from generous citizens. As a nonprofit, the Conservancys Sea Turtle program relies on funding by generous donors. How can you help? When you see marked nests, do not approach them. Do not touch the animals (they can find their way to the water). Turn off the lights at beaches during nesting season artificial light confuses the turtles, which use the light of the moon to guide them to the Gulf. Slow-down in designated channel zones. Clean up our beaches (turtles will eat and choke on litter). Use reusable bags instead of plastic bags. Support fisheries that use turtle safe devices on their nets. NIN joins nine other animal ambassadors at the Conservancy: Olive (barred owl), Horatio (red-tailed hawk), Aquila (bald eagle), Jack (Florida box turtle), Bindi (eastern Indigo snake), Gus (ball python), Peaches (red rat snake), Sheldon (yellow rat snake) and Stitch (Burmese python).

27 ISLAND SUN JUNE 22, 2018 SCCF Sea Turtle Nesting StatisticsNesting is ramping up on the west end of Sanibel and we continue to see great nesting on that stretch of beach. The east end and Captiva are still a little bit slower. Last weekend, we had our first green nest of the season near Blind Pass, which was very exciting. There have been 13 strandings in the past week and a half. Very likely this is the result of the red tide event that has persisted offshore for several months. Of the 13, seven were adult males, three adult females, two juvenile loggerheads, and one juvenile green. The adult male loggerhead that SCCF staff rescued last week is doing great at CROW. You can follow his progress online at loggerhead-sea-turtle-18-2170. As of June 15, 2017 Sanibel East: 63 loggerhead nests, 1 green nest, 140 loggerhead false crawls*, 0 green false crawls Sanibel West: 181 loggerhead nests, 5 green nests, 278 loggerhead false crawls*, 5 green false crawls Captiva: 97 loggerhead nests, 0 green nests, 86 loggerhead false crawls*, 0 green false crawls As of June 15, 2018 Sanibel East: 32 loggerhead nests, 0 green nests, 78 loggerhead false crawls*, 0 green false crawls Sanibel West: 169 loggerhead nests, 1 green nest, 278 loggerhead false crawls*, 0 green false crawls Captiva: 66 loggerhead nests, 0 green nests, 66 loggerhead false crawls*, 0 green false crawls *false crawl a failed nesting attempt If you have questions, or would like to know more about nesting stats on Sanibel, contact or call SCCF at 472-2329.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 22, 201828 SUN Book ReviewThe Immortalists by Di SaggauChloe Benjamins new novel The Immortalists is devoted to the awareness of death and how different people deal with it. Her characters are more aware than others because as small children, the four Gold children, in 1969 New York, visit an old crone who claimed to be able to tell anyone the day they will die. She gives each of them a date. They then live their lives knowing exactly when they will die. Simon learns that he will die at 20 so he embraces his homosexual identity and starts a new life in San Francisco. He figures he has no time to lose. He runs away at age 16 and is one of the first victims of the AIDs plague. The disease kills him before the disease has even been named. His sister, Klara, teaches herself the art of magic and performs it brilliantly. Her specialty is dangling at great heights with a rope between her teeth. She too has a date with death at age 32. Daniel is a military doctor who determines which recruits are healthy enough to face mortality on the battlefield. He is set to die at 48. His passion to learn the truth about his brother and sister puts his life in peril. Only Varya is given a long lifespan, living to 88. Shes a scientist who researches longevity. She learns to embrace her death-haunted siblings and believes that the best ways to stop aging are to suppress the reproductive system or restrict ones caloric intake. The Gold siblings are different from everyone else because they are all aware of their death all the time. They are always a little bit sad all the time. Its what they do with their sadness and their fear that makes them worth following. Benjamin takes us from 1969 to the present. She goes inside each siblings head sequentially, so the book reads like a four-act play. We have the gay scene in San Francisco in the early 80s, what its like to be a touring magician in the 90s, what its like to live in the suburbs in 2006 and what its like to be a female scientist in 2018. The writing flows easily, and we are entranced by the world of the Gold siblings. Nathan Hill, author of The Nix, said this about the book, A beautiful, compassionate, and even joyful novel. Chloe Benjamin has written an inspiring book that makes you think hard about what you want to do with the time youre given. This is not really a book about dying, its a book about how to live. The Immortalists is a deeply moving testament to the power of story, the nature of belief and the unrelenting pull of familial bonds. School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My 12-year-old daughter has some visual, motor and sensory processing deficits that slowed the development of her fine and gross motor skills. Her skills are improving but she still needs to work on them. I would like some suggestions for helping her with this over the summer. Leslie C, Fort Myers Leslie, Children develop fine and gross motor skills at different rates. Improvement of these skills is usually targeted to younger children, and its often assumed that these skills have been ameliorated by the tween and teen years. In fact, many older children do need to work on their fine and gross motor skills. Here are some suggestions from an occupational therapist that are both instructional and enjoyable. For Fine Motor Skills: Cooking From chopping vegetables to kneading bread or pizza dough, cooking together can be a relaxing way to build fine motor skills. It also gives you some time together and learning how to cook is a valuable life lesson. Building If your child enjoys working with her hands, put her to work doing some home repairs. Working with tools like a hammer and a screwdriver allows kids to make use of the small muscles in their hands. It also improves hand-eye coordination. Playing a musical instrument Playing an instrument, especially piano, woodwind instruments and guitar, can help build fine motor skills. Even if your child had trouble playing an instrument as a younger kid, its worth trying again if she expresses an interest. Practicing beauty routines Putting on makeup and creating complex hairstyles require a surprising amount of fine motor skill. Assuming the use of makeup works with your house rules, this could be a lot of fun for your daughter. 3D puzzles 3D puzzles have foam-like pieces that fit together to create models of everything from the Millennium Falcon to the Eiffel Tower. Until your childs fine motor skills improve, it may be hard to place the pieces. Start with simpler puzzles and work up to the more complicated ones. For Gross Motor Skills: Trampolines Jumping on a trampoline is a great activity to improve balance. Going to an indoor trampoline park can turn practice into a social event with friends as well. You can also buy a mini-trampoline to use at home but, if you do, make sure to set safety rules, like having a jump bar. Bowling Aiming for targets and rolling a bowling ball is another way to work on gross motor skills. If you dont have a bowling alley nearby, you can always set up water bottle bowling at home, using empty plastic water bottles and a soccer ball. Walking or hiking Walking or climbing over unstable surfaces can help kids work on strengthening their trunk muscles. Taking a hike with your child would also be beneficial for both of you. Swimming Swimming is a wholebody activity in which your childs body must work against the resistance of the water. It not only builds gross motor skills, it also helps develop proprioceptive awareness (knowing where your body is in space). Playground activities Using unstable playground equipment also helps develop your childs trunk muscles. Kids can try out things like rope ladders and wobble bridges. And it gives tweens, especially, an excuse to return to the playground. Riding a bike or a scooter Some kids who struggle with gross motor skills may learn to ride a bike later than their peers do. A scooter is a little easier to master and can be a step on the way to bike riding. Once kids do get the hang of it, though, bike riding can help older kids learn to maintain balance. Plus, it gives them a way to get around independently and an activity where they can interact with their peers. Dancing Whether its a dance class, a dance at school or just dancing to music at home, dancing has many benefits. Dancing helps kids develop balance, coordination and motor sequencing skills. It can also be a great way for kids to socialize. Shelley Greggs is adjunct faculty at Florida SouthWestern State College, where she teaches psychology and education courses. She is also a nationally certified school psychologist and consultant for School Consultation Services, a private educational consulting company.

Poets Corner by Hannah Star RogersCoast Guard When I talk to you, we are walking in the bright field of the mind, fringed by pines with low familiar blooms, flying insects all around, so when you say I love you, I become aware of the sunlight and what it does to the water and of you handling the stones into a harbor, the moss hardly touches the white paper boat, and the water resolves around it. Hannah Star Rogers holds an MFA from Columbia University and a PhD from Cornell University.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 22, 201834 Superior InteriorsWelcome To Our Homeby Barb CacchioneEach one of our clients expresses their own individual taste and style preferences. Ask them about color, and there are those who like bright happy hues while others desire a more subdued neutral or monochromatic palette. As far as comfort level, they will let you know if formality best suits their lifestyle, or the way they like to live is more casual. Today the trend is individuality whatever spells living well to a client. However, as a group, clients face universal challenges and goals. Every client desires feeling at ease when she or he entertains family and friends. Taking pride in the way a home looks is extremely important. Nobodys home comes without a challenge or two that needs to be addressed. Its surprising how long many people wait before converting the room that guests first see when they enter a house into attractive, functional, inviting space. Enhancing the foyer or creating an inviting entry can be easily accomplished with minimal investment. Its important that the foyer sets the tone for the homes dcor. Highlight a color present in the public rooms and add a few functional furniture pieces, rug and accessories to finish off the space. If the entry into your home is directly into the living area, concentrate on making an inviting first impression there. A well-designed living or great room begins with a furniture plan with distinct conversation areas. These cozy arrangements draw your guests in with a sit a while attitude. Layers of interest with the addition of color, texture and form with paint, fabrics and furniture will complete the space. Consider adjacent rooms that are visible from the entry door and address this area as well to ensure that there is a continuous design flow throughout your home.

Refuge Summer Education Intern Begins WorkEducation intern Emily Schwartz arrived on June 5 to help the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge with staffing shortages this summer, thanks to funding from the Ding Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge (DDWS). Schwartz, a sophomore at Colgate University in Hamilton, New York, is an environmental studies major exploring a minor in fields such as political science, geology and psychology. I have been coming to Sanibel since I was little, and I have always admired the sense of community, said the Fort Myers native. This island cares about the environment and takes real steps to conserve it for decades to come. During her first week on the job, Schwartz helped set up World Oceans Day at the refuge on June 8. She will be assisting Conservation Educator Sara Hallas and Supervisory Refuge Ranger Toni Westland with visiting summer camp groups and visitor services. I absolutely love the atmosphere that the refuge has, said Schwartz. People who come to Ding have an interest in learning, and that is crucial for the future of our environment. I also want to say that I have been here for only a short time so far, and the people I work with are amazing. They make this opportunity better than I could have imagined and welcomed me into their world. I have already learned so much. DDWS provides living stipends and other benefits for about a dozen interns each year. The refuge supports interns and resident volunteers with free housing. Our interns bring youthful energy, enthusiasm and creativity to the refuge team, said Westland. At the same time, the program gives students and recent graduates an opportunity to learn hands-on about the environment and refuge operations. For more information about the refuges internship programs, contact Westland at 472-1100 ext. 237.

35 ISLAND SUN JUNE 22, 2018Scholarships For Environmental Studies AwardedAt a special after-hours gathering at JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge on June 13, Ding Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge (DDWS) awarded $19,700 in conservation education scholarships to 15 students from the surrounding five-county area. During its 12-year history, the DDWS Environmental Scholarship Program has awarded a total of $116,700. The society is committed to educating todays youth to become conservation stewards of the future, said DDWS Education Chair Wendy Kindig. We work with businesses and individuals to provide annual scholarships to award to outstanding students pursuing degrees related to conservation, wildlife biology and the environment. A big thank you to our scholarship sponsors for helping us in our mission. Nine donors sponsored the 15 scholarships this year. Some sponsors were on hand at the ceremony to present checks to and congratulate the students who were able to attend. Many of those scholarship recipients who were unable to attend the ceremony sent thank-you videos that highlighted their education and career plans. DDWS awarded two Richard Bailey Scholarships named in memory of a longtime refuge volunteer and donated by his family. They went to Taylor Hancock, an Estero High graduate now studying environmental science at Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) in Fort Myers, and Robert Smith, a North Fort Myers High graduate who will be majoring in environmental studies at FGCU. The Mike and Terry Baldwin Scholarship, named for DDWS president and his wife, an emeritus board member, went to Katie Thorp, a Fort Myers High graduate studying environmental engineering at the University of Florida (UF) in Gainesville. Sarah Swiersz, a Southwest Florida Christian Academy graduate studying computational and physical science at the University of Central Florida (UCF) in Orlando, received the Dr. Andrew and Laura Dahlem Scholarship. The Dahlems live part-time on Sanibel and were honored with a named scholarship by family members. Barron Collier High graduate Morgan Humphrey, who now studies environmental engineering at FGCU, was awarded the Dr. H. Randall Deming Endowed Scholarship for Conservation & Environmental Studies. Demings family established the memorial in 2016 as a permanent endowed scholarship in his memory. Two Leslie & Hans Fleischner Scholarships went to Anthony Bonacolta, a Bishop Verot High graduate who studies marine science and microbiology at the University of Miami (UM), and Cypress Lake High graduate Dara Craig, who studies wildlife ecology and conservation at Vanderbilt University in Tennessee. The Fleischners are part-time Sanibel residents whose love of the islands environment moved them to sponsor the scholarship.

The business portion of the meeting was short and sweet, with needs expressed for volunteers to host our Rotary Youth Exchange Student from Taiwan this fall and the need for speaker coordinators for August, September and December. There were definite shout-outs to Rotarian Bill Rahe and Joleen Raho for designing and working on our clubs Fourth of July parade float. Raho even led us on a practice round of the patriotic songs we will be singing on Independence Day... but I think a little practice may be needed. This week, instead of a guest speaker, the program involved two classification talks from noteworthy club Rotarians Chet Sadler and Eldon Bohrofen. When we refer to a classification of a Rotarian, we really are speaking of their chosen professional careers. To maintain a balance of professional input on ideas, projects and programs, Rotary International likes to keep a diversification of professional experience within club membership. First up was Sadler classification: plastic engineer. Chet attended the University of Colorado and was planning on being a mechanical engineer, but he was drawn to another engineering program on campus. A highly respected professor at Colorado was doing exciting and revolutionary work with plastic extrusions, so Sadler switched engineering majors, enjoyed his studies and work with this professor, and graduated from University of Colorado with degrees in chemical engineering and international business. His experience included injection, extrusion and mixing of rubber and plastic. After graduation, he went directly to work at the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company in their international division stationed in Jamaica. When a transfer came through to report for a job in Africa, Sadler left Goodyear and went on to 10 different jobs in the plastic engineering field over a career that lasted him 30 years, 20 years in the automotive industry. The automotive field has many products that are dependent on plastic from rubber tires, car mats and door seals to water hoses and molded car parts, etc. Sadler advanced through the ranks of plastic engineering process engineer, engineering manager, plant manager and vice president of manufacturing. After retiring, he formed his own business, Sadler & Associates, which recruits high-tech employees for the plastics, rubber and machining industries and has consulted on projects involving plastic recycling. One project was in LaBelle several years ago, recycling plastic ground covering in the tomato fields. This plastic was transformed into railroad ties. Sadler certainly made his classification field sound exciting and he enjoyed the challenges and creative processes of his work. Remember the movie The Graduate in the 1960s? One word: Plastics. Next at the podium was Bohrofen classification: lawyer-estate planning The interesting part was exactly what road he traveled to become a lawyer. Eldons family worked a farm in Iowa, but this farm boy had a big problem. He was allergic to grain. So his father pretty much summed up the situation, Eldon was not meant to be a farmer. Hed better go to college. Not just any college but Drake University, where his first foray into networking happened when he joined a fraternity. His fraternity brought in speakers on many topics including How to Grow Yourself. One of the speakers owned a clothing business and somehow zeroed in on Bohrofen and his tie clasp. He told him to remove it and proceeded to tell him why. You dont want someone looking down at your shiny tie clasp, you want them looking straight at you. You want to be able to look them in the eye and sell yourself. It was a lesson he never forgot. After graduating from Drake, he still wasnt sure about what he wanted to do, but he knew he wanted to continue his education and decided to attend law school. Bohrofen probably was a pretty good student, but after turning in one of his papers to his law professor and friend, he got a strong wake-up call. You probably know your content of the law well, but you are extremely weak at writing articulate conclusions on your topic. His mentor brought him around and that was soon corrected. After graduation from law school, Bohrofen taught law for a while at Wisconsin and again through networking began a career in banking and trusts. Success with his trust clients led him to join one of them in business as the fourth largest auto parts suppliers to the Ford Motor Company. When that company was sold, he went back into trust management and law eventually becoming senior partner at RohdeDales, LLP in Wisconsin. Bohrofen is also a principal in M-B Companies, Inc., a manufacturer of airport snow removal products and pavement marketing and striping machinery. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets Friday mornings at 7 a.m. at The Dunes Golf & Tennis Club. Guests are welcome.

Tarpon Bay Explorers started the original DDWS scholarship program in 2007. The Jane Werner Endowed Environmental Scholarship, DDWS first permanent endowed scholarship established in 2011, went to recent Naples High graduate Griffin Alexander, who will be attending UM to study marine ecosystems, policy and law. The family of the late Jane Werner, who volunteered at the refuge for 25 years, set up the scholarship in her honor. These students become part of the greater Ding Darling family, said Kindig. We welcome them back as scholarship applicants next year and as fellow conservation stewards in years to come. DDWS will be awarding scholarships of $1,000 to $4,000 each at the end of the 2018-19 school year. High school seniors and college students living in Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Glades, and Hendry counties and pursuing careers in biology, conservation and environmental studies are eligible.

Let Air Trek be the wings that take you there! Business Offers Free Cell Phone ChargersHurricane preparation is ramping up at the Sanibel & Captiva Islands Chamber of Commerce. This past week, area resident and owner of Door to Door Promotions Paul Gulbrandsen donated 100 portable cell phone chargers, for chamber visitors, to help them prepare for potential power outages over the next few months during hurricane season. The chargers are just one of thousands of items available from Door to Door Promotions. Gulbrandsen knew he had the perfect outlet at the chamber, as many visitors come to experience Sanibel but arent always prepared for hurricanes should they occur. Donating these cell phone chargers was a no brainer, said Gulbrandsen. Knowing how heavily agencies such as the chamber and Sanibel City Hall rely on technology to communicate with people in the event of a storm, I thought this was the perfect way to keep visitors powered up and ready. Over the next few weeks, visitors can walk into the chamber and pick up one of the free charging devices at any time. Member Relations Manager Ashely Gibbons was eager to accept the chargers when she heard the offer. Our visitors love anything from Sanibel, especially if its free, said Gibbons. Its always nice to have something, like these Door to Door cell phone chargers, that they can take home and use all year long. Hopefully theyll be reminded of their trip to Sanibel when they go to use it and book their next visit as a result. For more information, contact Paul Gulbrandsen at 303-882-7646 or email Paul Gulbrandsen, owner of Door to Door Promotions, powering Member Relations Manager Ashley Gibbons in front of the Francis P.

I always thought Sanibel was paradise and I still do. Garrett, who earned a bachelor of arts degree in communications from the University of Michigan and a master of business administration degree in marketing from The Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania, is looking to relocate to the island full-time as soon as she and her husband, Stephen Garrett, find their dream home on Sanibel.

The first thing you do is spit into you mask, and then you swirl that all around the glass, he said, explaining that human saliva helps keep the mask from fogging up. Then you dip you mask into the water one time, and youre ready to go. Horvath, along with two recreation counselors doubling as lifeguards throughout the lesson, assisted the campers with getting familiar with the snorkeling apparatus. The youngsters were then paired off, with Horvath explaining how The Buddy System works and why the number one rule for having fun while in the water is Safety first. Within a couple of minutes, each pair of campers were engaged in swimming across the shallow pool, using their masks/ goggles and snorkel with relative ease. This is much more than splashing around, DeFonzo said of the weekly snorkeling lessons. Kids are learning how to control their breathing. And other kids are learning how to get over their fear of being under water. Its less advanced than our scuba classes with the older kids, but its a very valuable tool for them to use. In the coming weeks, campers will learn more advanced snorkeling techniques, including how to dive for target items placed at the bottom of the pool. Some activities will also include prizes awarded to camp participants who display the best safe snorkeling skills. Throughout the summer, campers are participating in other athletic activities such as swimming, fishing, basketball, bowling and archery, along with a number of special games and sports. They include an Introduction to Scuba Diving with Calli Johnson (Fridays from 9 a.m. to noon for grades 7 and 8); Golfing at The Sanctuary (Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to noon for grades 5 and 6); and Pickleball (Mondays from 1 to 2 p.m. for grades K, 1 and 2, from 2 to 3 p.m. for grades 3 and 4, and from 3 to 4 p.m. for grades 5 to 8). Upcoming events planned for Fridays at the Rec Center facility include the Lil Dipper water slide (June 29), Challenger obstacle course (July 6), John Storms World of Reptiles showcase (July 13), a dual-lane water slide (July 20) and the X-Factor obstacle course (July 27). The camp, offered to children entering kindergarten through eighth grades, runs Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Sanibel Recreation Center. Rates per week range from $157 for members and $206 for non-members. Camp will not be held on Wednesday, July 4. Financial assistance is available to qualifying families. As part of the registration fee, breakfast and lunch will be provided daily as well as the all-inclusive weekly field trip itinerary. Campers should bring a swimsuit, towel and sunscreen daily.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 22, 201840 When a loved one dies, whomever you name as the personal representative (executor) under the will or the trustee under a trust will be charged with the responsibility of ensuring that your estate or trust satisfies any outstanding creditors upon your death. Creditors might appear in the form of credit cards, hospital or medical bills, car payments, mortgage payments or a host of other debts youre responsible for. If, after your death, your loved one simply distributes the assets without satisfying your creditors then the law holds that loved one personally responsible for your debts. Its therefore important for your loved one to follow the legal process. That process provides that he or she must search for reasonably ascertainable creditors. Usually this is accomplished with the assistance of your estate planning attorney. Its fairly simple to find most reasonably ascertainable creditors, since they typically invoice periodically. With electronic communication and payments becoming more common, your loved one not only should search through the mail for these invoices, but also through email as well as review automatic payments generated from the decedents bank accounts. If you have a significant amount of electronic payments, then you should speak to those that you have named in your legal documents about this and perhaps give them access to your electronic accounts. With recent probate and trust administration files, Ive noticed that finding in-home caretakers after my clients death can sometimes pose a challenge. While many employ caretakers from established licensed businesses providing that service, it also appears that theres a significant underground economy consisting of non-licensed individuals, or even friends and neighbors, who get paid for helping elderly folks who need it. The caretakers might simply take the individual to the grocery store, or they may perform other tasks like cooking meals, driving to doctors appointments, and assisting with check-writing and other bill-paying services. Its dangerous to have a person in your home performing these tasks without insurance, bond or background checks, but I can tell you anecdotally many are so employed here in Southwest Florida. Because so many of our elderly residents families live in far away states, its no wonder that those losing physical or mental capacity turn to others to help perform daily tasks. I dont want to be a burden to my children is a refrain Ive heard on more than one occasion. Nevertheless, when an individual who has been cared for passes away, there might be loose ends or unpaid bills for services outstanding. The personal representative or trustee may not even know that there was anyone helping with these tasks or if they had been paid in full. So, if you are one of those who does employ in-home aids, please first ensure that they are insured, licensed and bonded. You should also let your loved ones know who you have employed, how often they come to your residence, how much their charges should be, from which accounts those payments are generated, and what accounts those individuals have access to. I would go so far as to suggest that a close relative should receive copies of the statements (print or electronic) to monitor activity within the account. Another issue that may become a problem with many decedents is leased vehicles. Typically, car leases do not expire upon the lessors death. That means that if you pass away one year into a three-year lease, your estate may be liable for the final two years of payments. Before leasing an automobile, ensure that you understand the leasehold terms applying to your death or disability, and let whomever you have named in your legal documents to take care of your affairs know about the transaction. Youre putting a great deal of responsibility on those that you name as your personal representative and/or trustee. Its incumbent upon you to keep those individuals in the loop as to your financial life, particularly if you should begin to fail mentally or physically.

43 ISLAND SUN JUNE 22, 2018 United Way Campaign Chairs The United Way of Lee, Hendry, Glades, and Okeechobee announced that the 2018-19 United Way Campaign chairs will be Linda Doggett and Robert Shearman. The goal for the new campaign will be $10,301,386, which is a three percent increase over what was raised for the previous campaign. Doggett is the clerk of the circuit court and comptroller for Lee County. She is also a native Floridian. Doggett is a United Way board member and a United Way allocations team leader. She has been active in many court related organizations such as the Florida Commission for Access to Civil Justice, and is on the board of directors of the Florida Court Clerks and Comptrollers organization. Shearman is a board certified civil trial attorney with Henderson Franklin Attorneys at Law, and concentrates on defense of tort, civil rights and real estate law. He is a United Way board member, a United Way allocations team leader and a United Way ReadingPal. Shearman has been a Big Brother and a trustee of the Calusa Nature Center and Planetarium. Regarding this years campaign, Shearman said, Linda and I have chosen a theme for the campaign, The Power of U, that refers to both the power of you as an individual and the power of United Way to make a difference in the community. Every individual, every company, every dollar given to United Way makes a difference in the lives of hundreds of thousands of local people. Doggett added, The United Way of Lee, Hendry, Glades, and Okeechobee has a strong history of successful campaigns and continues to support the growing needs of the people of our community. This campaign will be the largest ever, and every penny of it will be needed to meet the needs of our constantly growing community. This campaign will support over 100 agencies and 250 programs that help hundreds of thousands of our friends and neighbors. I am a native Floridian, and I know how important United Way is to this community. I am excited to be a part of this vital campaign, and hope the community will embrace the challenge and support the needs of our community. Being asked to chair the United Way Campaign is an honor and a challenge, said Shearman. It is a huge responsibility to raise over $10.3 million for our United Way, but we will pursue the goal with passion and enthusiasm. When people ask me why I support our United Way, I answer that it is one of the most efficient, effective and compassionate ways to give back to the community we love. Both Linda Doggett and I have been involved with United Way as members of the board of directors and allocations team leaders. The allocations process has given us an understanding and appreciation of the incredible work being done by United Way Partner Agencies. We have seen these agencies in action helping children, veterans, seniors and families who are struggling. United Way and over 100 partner agencies work tirelessly to meet the real human needs of our community. I witnessed United Way in action during Hurricane Irma and observed firsthand the difference it makes. The United Way of Lee, Hendry, Glades, and Okeechobee has raised and distributed over $167 million since it was established in 1957. All money raised in the United Way campaign stays in the local community to help support the local human service network. United Way Partner Agencies and initiatives include: The Alvin A Dubin Alzheimers Resource Center, Partners for Breast Cancer Care, Harry Chapin Food Bank, the Boys and Girls Clubs, and United Way 211, to mention a few. These agencies serve a diverse range of needs in the community such as nurturing children and youth, strengthening families, and meeting critical needs like helping the elderly and disabled live independently, and empowering communities by bringing health and human services to neighborhoods. In addition to raising funds for human service organizations in our community, the United Way promotes partnerships and collaborations among agencies and initiatives, helping them to work together focusing on issues and solutions that continue to improve lives.

U.S. Open Golf Championship Win Is What Should Be Remembered, Not Veteran Players Amateurish Anticsby Ed FrankWhen the dust settles over last weekends 118th U.S. Open Golf Championship, most will remember the ridiculous slapping back a runaway putt on the 13th hole Saturday by Phil Mickelson rather than the stirring back-toback championships by Brooks Koepka. And its a shame. Koepkas victory at the brutally tough Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in Southampton, New York, was the first repeat since Curtis Stranges feat in 1988 and 1989. But, unfortunately, the golf world, and much of the sports world, will continue talking about Mickelsons childish antics during the third round. It was the kind of behavior you would expect from a weekend golfer playing at a municipal golf course not what you would expect from one of golfs all-time favorite players competing in our national championship. To set the record straight, conditions last Saturday at Shinnecock Hills, particularly in the afternoon, were nearly unplayable. A 25to 30-mile-an-hour wind had dried the greens to a crusty, lightning-fast surface. That, added to the design of the greens, made it often impossible for the worlds best golfers to keep their approach shots, and even some of their putts, from tumbling off the greens. So here comes Mickelson, who was having a bad round anyway, to the 13th green. His downhill, bogey putt rolls well past the hole and before it stopped moving, Mickelson slaps the ball back past the hole. He ends up with an eight and was assessed a two-stroke penalty for a 10 on the hole. He ended the day with an embarrassing 81. To his credit he shot a respectable 69 in the closing round. Mickelsons run and slap was stunning. Many said they had never seen such a thing in a professional tournament. But Mickelson defended his move, claiming he knew he would be penalized two strokes rather than having his putt roll all the way off the green. Others said it was in a fit of anger, not becoming in this most prestigious championship. It probably will be debated, and debated, whether he should have been disqualified. More, important, however, what should be discussed and remembered was the thrilling finish to the U.S. Open. Koepka showed what real champions are made off. His one-over-par, one-stroke victory over Englands Tommy Fleetwood earned him $2.16 million. This is what we should remember, not the likeable Mickelsons slippery slope performance on the 13th green last Saturday. Mircles Blankenhorn Wins All-Star Game Home Run Contest Fort Myers Miracle infielder Travis Blankenhorn won the Florida State League All-Star Game home run contest last week belting 31 homers. Blanekenhorn is ranked the 14th best prospect in the Minnesota Twins organization having been drafted in the third round of the Major League Draft in 2015. He has been hitting .333 in the month of June to raise his season average to .270.

45 ISLAND SUN JUNE 22, 2018Python Removal Efforts To Be ExpandedEverglades National Park and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) are partnering together to expand efforts to remove Burmese pythons from within the park. The partnership will expand the parks Python Removal Authorized Agent Program by allowing paid FWC contractors to remove pythons in Everglades National Park. The expansion will triple the maximum allowed number of participants in the park from 40 to 120, allow FWC contractors to use firearms or other humane methods to euthanize pythons in the wild and qualify additional trained NPS personnel to live capture and turn in pythons. The purpose of this controlled invasive species management program remains to remove invasive pythons and other invasive species from the wild and advance research in methods to control pythons. Park officials are working closely with the FWC on the terms of the agreement that would allow FWC contractors to engage in python removals in the park, potentially as early as July 2018. We are excited to partner with FWC on invasive species management and are certain this partnership will increase python removals within our park, said Everglades National Park Superintendent Pedro Ramos. We worked hard in planning this expansion to ensure it wont harm the park and its exceptional resources. To that end, park officials and the FWC will hold a required Everglades National Park orientation for the contractors so they fully understand the parks program and rules they must follow prior to beginning removals within the park. We appreciate the support and efforts of our partners, especially Everglades National Park and Superintendent Ramos. With the leadership and support of Gov. Scott and our commissioners, we have seen a significant increase in efforts and results to remove the Burmese pythons and other invasive species, said FWC Executive Director Eric Sutton. Our success moving forward relies on everyone pulling together collectively including agencies, nonprofits, private landowners and individual citizens. Burmese pythons pose a significant threat to the Everglades ecosystem. Along with state, federal, tribal and local partners, Everglades National Park and the FWC have invested millions of dollars and countless hours in developing and testing ways to remove pythons from the Everglades. While this research has improved knowledge of the python population, eliminating pythons using current technology is impossible. Search and removal by trained individuals remains the best method to remove pythons. The park used volunteers for removal in the past, and while it will continue to do so, the addition of FWC contractors will allow greater numbers of skilled people to engage in removals than ever before. While hunting remains prohibited by law in Everglades National Park, said Ramos, we believe the expansion of the program to include allowing FWC contractors to remove pythons in the park will be welcomed by concerned citizens that want to play a role in helping with this significant problem. The FWC designed the Python Removal Contractor Program to further engage qualified individuals with python management efforts. Python removal contractors are paid for their efforts to survey for and, when possible, capture Burmese pythons in specific areas which will soon include Everglades National Park. They may also respond to survey requests in areas where pythons have been reported. Burmese pythons became established in Florida as a result of escaped or released pets. People should never release nonnative pets in the wild in Florida. It is illegal and can negatively impact native wildlife and habitat. The FWC has an Exotic Pet Amnesty Program that allows nonnative pets to be surrendered without penalty.

It is literally the bodys fuel. Providing our body with healthy food encourages a healthier body. Proper nourishment not only keeps us moving, but also supports the immune system, fending off viruses or infections. Incorporating fresh, raw vegetables is an important part of a healthy diet and body. Spinach, a green, leafy superfood, contains folate, Vitamin C and fiber. Broccoli has Vitamins A and C, and the antioxidant glutathione. Include onions and garlic as part of your kitchen staples and recipes, because they both possess anti-inflammatory agents that help with chronic pain, decrease inflammation and fight infection. Many fruits are loaded with antioxidants, especially berries. Blueberries, elderberries and acai berries have a darker color, a sign that they contain a strong antioxidant called anthocyanin. They also provide selenium and the B vitamins riboflavin and niacin, which help build the immune system. Watermelon strengthens the immune system too, because its high in the antioxidant glutathione, which can help fight infections. Fruit is raw, fresh and very tasty, but since it contains high amounts of fructose, be careful not to overdo it. Try fruit on top of plain, Greek yogurt for added protein, probiotics and Vitamin D. The beautiful orange color of sweet potatoes indicates high amounts of carotenoids, powerful antioxidants that fight systemic inflammation and bolster the immune system. Sweet potatoes baked as French Fries, are delicious and much healthier than the fried version. When we are fighting a bug, homemade chicken soup is one of our favorites. Its a true remedy with science to back. It contains carnosine, which is made up of amino acids that act to slow down degenerative conditions. Great to know. These foods help fight infections as part of a healthy lifestyle. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

We are extremely grateful for his contributions and, with this award, recognize Mike for his efforts of improving mental health access for the children of Suthwest Florida, said Dr. Emad Salman, regional medical officer, Golisano Childrens Services. His integrated program has changed the lives of many families. Ellis is the president/CEO of Healthcare Network of Southwest Florida. Prior to coming to Healthcare Network, he was executive director of the Golisano Childrens Hospital. He also held senior staff positions at the Family Health Centers of Southwest Florida, University Hospital at the University of Florida in Jacksonville, Nemours Childrens Hospital in Jacksonville and St. Elizabeth Medical Center in Dayton, Ohio. Ellis is a former Lee Memorial Health System board of director and currently a commissioner on the Lee County Mosquito Board of Commissioners. Every year, in recognition of Child Abuse Prevention Month, Golisano Childrens Hospital and the Prendergast Family Endowment Fund host a lecture on child abuse and recognize a special individual in the community for their commitment to prevention and advocacy. In 2005, Eileen Prendergast and her family gave the community a million reasons to help children in Southwest Florida when they made a $1 million gift to establish the Prendergast Endowment Fund for the Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Floridas Child Advocacy Program and the annual Prendergast Child Advocate of the Year recognition. The program features free parenting classes taught in partnership with the Childrens Advocacy Center of Southwest Florida to prevent child abuse. These classes have touched the lives of more than 7,500 parents in the Southwest Florida region. Mike Ellis and Dr. Emad Salman photo provided From page 18Fishing Programssought-after fishes. Catch-and-release fishing and responsible fish handling practices are emphasized, and anglers do not have to harvest their catches to qualify. Photos of the angler with each catch are required and could even be featured in FWC publications or on social media. Saltwater Fish Life List Can you catch them all? Similar to a birding life list, this program allows anglers to track their progress at catching 71 different species of saltwater fish. Anglers who catch at least 10 different Life List species can join the Saltwater Fish Life List 10-Fish Club and receive a prize pack including a certificate of accomplishment and a shirt, plus be eligible for additional prizes as they catch 30, 50 and all 71 fish on the list. Anglers who complete their Life List by submitting all 71 fish will be awarded a grand prize. Get started today and print your Saltwater Fish Life List or request to receive one by mail at www. Saltwater Reel Big Fish Dont let that whopper of a fish turn into just a whopper of a story. Memorialize your Saltwater Reel Big Fish by submitting a photo of you with your catch and a photo of the fish over a measuring device. This program includes 30 different species in both adult and youth (age 15 and younger) categories. Successful participants receive a prize pack including a certificate of accomplishment and a shirt, and are eligible for additional prizes as they catch five, 10, 15 or all 30 different Saltwater Reel Big Fish species. Plus, anglers who submit all 30 species will get a grand prize. Saltwater Grand Slams Can you meet the challenge? FWC has nine different Saltwater Grand Slams that award anglers for catching three specified fish within a 24-hour period, and the categories may surprise and challenge you. From the Inshore Grand Slam consisting of red drum, spotted seatrout and flounder to the Florida Grand Slam of permit, tarpon and bonefish, these challenges will make you work to increase your fishing skills. The program even includes a Small Fry Grand Slam for anglers age 15 and younger who catch a pinfish, catfish and grunt. Successful anglers receive a prize pack with a certificate of accomplishment and a shirt showing the fish from their Grand Slam, and can win additional prizes when they catch three, six, or all eligible Grand Slams. Plus, a grand prize will be given to anglers who complete all eligible slams.

SUN deaRPharmacistEat Bananas In The Pursuit Of Happinessby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Readers: Most bananas are peeled and eaten within one minute. Thats according to The Guiness Book of World Records. While not officially amazing in my opinion, the most bananas peeled and eaten in one minute is eight and was accomplished by a man named Patrick Deep Dish Bertoletti, a competitive eater. Because bananas have a constipating effect on your digestion, this guy was probably constipated for days, lol! Bananas have a tremendous amount of medicinal applications. For one, the peel of a banana is known as a home remedy to promote wound healing from minor burns. The actual fruit could have substantial impact on several illnesses, including depression. Last year in 2017, the crop that sells about 145 million tons of bananas (worldwide) came under attack. A deadly fungus spread through plantations and, simultaneously, bacterial disease killed some plantations in Africa. Bananas are not doomed, so dont worry, and thats a good thing if you have depression or Parkinsons disease which are due in part to low dopamine. Dopamine is a happy brain chemical; its your bodys natural antidepressant. Dopamine is what makes you want to garden or golf for example, to dance, laugh and do fun hobbies. Healthy dopamine levels are critical for movement and coordination. With declining levels of dopamine, or dopamine receptor insensitivity, you could see Parkinsons-like symptoms, depression, bladder dysfunction, obesity, memory loss, sometimes attention problems and unexplained fear or anxiety spells. So where do bananas fall into this discussion? In their small way, they contribute a chemical that helps you make dopamine. They are naturally high in an amino acid called tyrosine that is part of the dopamine chemical structure. Without tyrosine, you cant make dopamine or thyroid hormone for that matter. Dopamine and thyroid hormone are two primary happy brain chemicals. So, if youre in the pursuit of happiness, go bananas! In some strange banana news, a British man was driving in Taiwan, and he threw his banana peel out the car window. A Taiwanese man, who saw this act of littering, followed him and confronted him at a red light. The man said, Littering is unethical and uncivilized behavior. While I do agree, I dont think I would have chased someone down over a flying banana peel. Bananas could possibly help with diabetes due to the pectin and resistant starch. Leg cramps could be soothed by the amount of potassium and magnesium in bananas. And some research suggests anti-cancer effects. Ive written an extensive article on the health benefits of bananas and, if youd like to read that version, sign up for my free newsletter at In the meantime, here are seven ideas to help you go bananas. 1. Just peel and eat 2. Add a banana to your smoothie 3. Make banana chocolate chip bread or muffins 4. Make banana chips with a dehydrator 5. Dip bananas into melted chocolate then freeze the pop 6. Make banana tea by boiling it in water, I have a recipe at my site. 7. For breakfast, make banana nut collagen pancakes This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: I am a mother of a 15-year-old daughter. I hear her talk with her friends about how fat they are, and they are all of normal weight. Why is it they have such poor body images?A: I hear so many mothers share their stories of their concerns over their daughters poor body image. In our perfectionistic culture, adolescents pick up on body consciousness, and they feel they have to have the perfect body. They distort their reality and often end up obsessing about their every flaw! Body image is a key element to self-esteem. Body image is influenced by upbringing, media, peer pressure and cultural values. Its a misconception to think that you always have to change how you look in order to feel good about yourself. Much of body image involves perception, and it can change quickly with mood. If we can help our youth with lovingkindness to see their attributes from the crown of their head to the tips of their toes maybe just starting with a few and building regularly they can begin to appreciate themselves in a larger, kinder, more intuitive way. They all need to understand how each of us is born with a unique body and spirit. This is a gift we all have been given. We all need to be grateful for our bodies and the amazing things they are capable of doing. Its important for the teens to set realistic goals: healthy eating and exercise; a healthy belief about the amazing body and what it can do; be gentle with the self; and learn to accept their bodies for all they are. If we all take time out to role model for our youth, I believe some amazing changes can occur with their beliefs that they can honor themselves for the way they are instead of criticizing themselves.

Date of Pub: June 22 & 29, 2018.6/22 6/29 LEGAL NOTICE 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. by Capt. Matt Mitchell Shore Fishing:Don't Harm The Fish


Top 10 Real Estate SalesCourtesy of Royal Shell Real Estate 55 ISLAND SUN JUNE 22, 2018 My Stars FOR WEEK OF JUNE 25, 2018Aries (March 21 to April 19) Count to 10 if you must, but dont lose your temper, despite that persons (you know who!) efforts to goad you into reacting. Your restraint will pay off in a big way. Taurus (April 20 to May 20) This week finds you in a sociable mood, ready and eager to enjoy the company of family and friends. Its also a good time to seek out and renew old friendships. Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Patience is called for as you await a decision about that project youre eager to launch. Meanwhile, try to set aside more time to share with that special person in your life. Cancer (June 21 to July 22) Avoid becoming involved in a workplace dispute early in the week by insisting both sides submit their stands to a neutral arbitrator. Things begin to cool off by Thursday. Leo (July 23 to August 22) It promises to be a busy but productive week for the Big Cat. The pace slows by Friday, allowing you to catch up on matters you put aside but that now need your attention. Virgo (August 23 to September 22) A suddenly disruptive family situation is best handled with a cool, calm and collected response. Wait until things settle to let off all that pent-up emotional steam. Libra (September 23 to October 22) Your practical side dominates the week as you reassess your finances to make some sensible adjustments in what you plan to spend and what you expect to save. Scorpio (October 23 to November 21) An unexpected meeting with a former colleague opens some interesting possibilities. But you need to press for full disclosure before making a decision. Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21) A recent flurry of activity eases by midweek, giving you time to readjust your disrupted schedule and make new plans for a weekend getaway. Capricorn (December 22 to January 19) Youre usually the one who gives advice. But now its time to open yourself up to counsel from friends who have your best interests at heart. Aquarius (January 20 to February 18) You might find resistance to your call for a full inquiry into a workplace problem. But by weeks end even the most rigid naysayers begin to come around. Pisces (February 19 to March 20) A recurring problem surfaces once again. Maybe its time you used your creative talents to help you find a new approach to resolving it once and for all. Born This Week: You are guided in what you do both by your intelligence and your emotions. An acting career would suit you quite well. It was French author, philosopher and journalist Albert Camus who made the following sage observation: Nobody realizes that some people expend tremendous energy merely to be normal. Famously flamboyant country singer and songwriter Dolly Parton once entered a Dolly Parton look-alike contest and she lost. If youre a sailor youre probably familiar with the hazards of being out on the water: high seas, storms, hidden reefs. You probably wouldnt count whales among the dangers, but youd be wrong. In 2010, on a day sail out of Table Bay Harbor in South Africa, a couple on a 30-foot sailboat were whale-watching when one got too close for comfort. A 40-ton whale they had been viewing breached right next to the boat and landed on the deck, breaking off the mast and then thrashing around before sliding back into the water. The whale lost some skin and blubber, but was otherwise unharmed; the couple were lucky to still have a seaworthy craft and made it safely back to the harbor. Married women arent likely to be surprised by the following tidbit of information: Studies show that women with husbands typically do 30 percent more housework than single women do. If youre heading to the state of Washington with mischief on your mind, youll need to keep in mind this state law: A motorist with criminal intentions [must] stop at the city limits and telephone the chief of police as he [or she] is entering the town. I bet that one has been really effective in stopping crime. Its been reported that singer Sting doesnt use deodorant. In fact, after interviewing him for a concert once, the journalists nicknamed him Stink. Its far better to be unhappy alone than unhappy with someone. -Marilyn Monroe THOUGHT FOR THE DAY STRANGE BUT TRUE SCRAMBLERS Hortoons Subdivision City Year Built Square FootageListing Price Selling Price Days On Market Frowes Subdivision Captiva 1946 3,161 $2,495,000 $2,350,000 138 Cases Fort Myers Beach 1945 2,024 $2,300,000 $2,140,000 22 Colony Beach Estates Sanibel 1988 3,240 $2,075,000 $1,950,000 238 Herons Landings I Sanibel 1989 2,880 $1,349,000 $1,279,000 105 Lakewood Fort Myers 2005 3,871 $995,000 $975,000 181 Cranbrook Bonita Springs 1992 2,974 $959,500 $925,000 54 Renaissance Fort Myers 2018 3,255 $946,805 $920,000 83 Idlewilde Estero 2003 3,122 $895,000 $830,000 69 Cape Coral Cape Coral 2014 2,853 $845,000 $810,000 231 Wildcat Run Estero 1990 3,311 $874,900 $800,000 217
