On June 21, more than 1,000 people gathered at the Outrigger Beach Resort, where VCB officials, event volunteers and a representative from the Guinness Book of World Records helped coordinate the new record attempt. Currently, this record is held by the Shell Oil Company. It consisted of 855 participants and was achieved on October 17, 2017, a press release from the VCB reads, in part. As the seashell capital of the world, the VCB believes this record should be held by The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel. Several days prior to the event, the VCB announced that they had reached maximum capacity of 1,500 participants. Beginning at 9:30 a.m., organizers called for groups of approximately 50 people clad in either white or turquoise National Seashell Day T-shirts to be escorted out onto the sand, where they stood in place while other groups were continued on page 45 To commemorate the 3rd annual National Seashell Day, more than 1,000 people gathered at the Outrigger Beach Resort on Fort Myers Beach in an attempt to break the world record for Largest Human Image of a Seashell.

WWW.ShopOnSanibel.COMFor individual shop information: LUNCH BAR DINNER GIFTS Zontians Explore Back Waters Of Tarpon BayOn June 16, members of the Zonta Club of Sanibel-Captiva and SalusCare of Fort Myers ventured to Tarpon Bay Explorers for a Nature and Sealife Cruise provided by Tarpon Bay Explorers free of charge for the fourth consecutive year. Led by the experienced naturalistcaptain combo Donna and Steve Yetsko, the group was able to learn about the rich mangrove estuary from top to bottom. Outings like these are such a unique opportunity to allow these women to connect with nature, said Zontian Phyllis Gresham. It is a great way to learn about things we take for granted in a relaxing environment. The trip began at Tarpon Bay Explorers aquarium touch tanks, where the women were able to learn about benthic wildlife up close and personal. After their hands-on experience, they boarded Tarpon Bay Explorers pontoon boat, Explorer IV, for a calm cruise through the bay. Luck was on the womens side as the wildlife sightings were ample. There are a lot of baby pelicans on the islands this time of year and are quite a sight to see, said Donna Yetsko. We had a dolphin mom and calf swimming next to the boat. Couldnt have had a better trip. After the boat tour, the women were treated to a picnic and barbecue at Lighthouse Park, with goodies provided by Zontians. Zonta established a chapter on Sanibel and Captiva since 1987 with the goal of making a difference in womens lives on the islands and Lee County through fundraising, service & advocacy. In this case, Zonta has provided service and funding for many years to women at SalusCare (formally SWFL Addiction Services) in Fort Myers. Club volunteers offer activities that include womens health education, creative arts and more, adding special value to activities of women dedicated to recovery from substance abuse. The entire group had a marvelous time, added Gresham. We cannot thank Wendy Schnapp (Tarpon Bay Explorers part-owner and general manager) enough and we are already looking forward to next year.

Seminars Feature Scholars Filmed In The Holy LandOn Sunday, July 1, Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ will begin a 12-week series entitled Eclipsing Empire: Paul, Rome and the Kingdom of God. The programs are part of the Living the Questions curriculum that explores Christianity from a progressive perspective. Each one-hour session in the Summer Sunday Seminar Series features a high-definition video and discussion guided by either Rev. Dr. John H. Danner or the Rev. Deborah Kunkel. Classes are held every Sunday at 9 a.m. in Heron Hall, on the lower level of the church, which is located at 2050 Periwinkle Way. All seminars are free and open to the public. Because each class stands alone, participants may attend as many as they wish. Those who attend Eclipsing Empire will join preeminent New Testament scholars Marcus Borg and John Dominic Crossan on location in Turkey as they trace the Apostle Pauls footsteps throughout the Roman Empire. This DVD and web-based study explores fresh insights into Pauls message of the Kingdom of God, its challenge to Roman imperial theology, and the apostles radical relevance for today. Take-home materials will be provided each week. In July, the church offers traditional worship services at 10 a.m. The Eclipsing Empire Summer Sunday Seminar Series, offered before each weeks service, will continue through September 16.

He had suffered briefly from Alzheimers and other neurological diseases. A brilliant entrepreneur, Peter graduated in 1951 from Philips Exeter Academy and in 1956 from Cornell University, where he majored in mechanical engineering. He was also a member of the crew team and Kappa Sigma fraternity. He began his career by working as a rocket scientist, and his efforts on Thiokols Minute Man Missile earned him various patents, one of which was on the space shuttle. Creating innovative technology was not foreign to Peter, whose maternal great grandfather, Hieronymous Mueller, invented the plumbing joint that made fire hydrants possible. Mueller fire hydrants, with their distinctive caps, are still in wide use today. Hieronymous also produced the Mueller Benz, which William Jennings Bryan used in his 1896 presidential campaign After Thiokol, he went to work for a consulting firm that focused on business development in Africa. He volunteered to spend about six months a year in Africa, learning the geography, cultures and business opportunities. In his view, a young greenhorn could take on such a task since no one else in the company knew much more about Africa than he did. In time, Peter had an opportunity to buy the consulting firm, which he later sold successfully. Although his future employment did not concern Africa, the insight he gained through these experiences helped to broaden his worldview and to shape the international scope that he brought to his new company. In the mid-1970s, Peter bought into Buck Engineering (later renamed Lab-Volt) in Wall Township, New Jersey. At the time, the U.S. was deeply involved in the space race inspired by the launch of Sputnik; Peter harnessed the wave of enthusiasm for technological innovation at the time and used the momentum to build the company into a worldwide leader in the field. Over time, he modified its focus to emphasize technology education and, eventually, took the company private. Peters major innovations included pursuing countrywide upgrades for technology globally. He was convinced that it was easier and more cost efficient to persuade an entire country to invest heavily in technology education than to pursue many separate Requests for Proposals (RFPs). Guided by this approach, he traveled extensively to establish and strengthen ties between Lab-Volt and ministries of education across the world. Moreover, Lab-Volt marketing staff worked closely with field representatives of various international technology groups to implement and upgrade training programs. These representatives benefitted from his heavy investment in sales and marketing; he offered contracts that allowed top salesmen to earn more than the very top executives of the company. Indeed, for Peter, the importance of taking care of his employees and improving education eclipsed a desire for personal profit. Finally, he moved manufacturing to Canada. Able to characterize his company as Canadian, he gained the support of the Canadian Ministry of Education and managed to sell his products in many different countries, including those that may have otherwise been hesitant to work with Americans. Lab-Volt products were recognized internationally for their innovation and excellence, which were reflected by the numerous gold and silver awards they received from World Didact, the international professional organization. As Lab-Volt grew in stature and power, Peter was elected to various boards, including vice president and president elect of World Didact. His accomplishments were further honored by such awards as the Golden Osprey Outstanding Business Award in 1995. Peter sold Lab-Volt to Festo Didactic in 2014. Peter was the son of Frederick E. and Charlotte M. Schluter. He grew up in Princeton, New Jersey, on a family dairy farm that became the home of the Educational Testing Service. Peter is survived by his wife, Christine Moon Schluter; his daughters, Jane Schluter, Charlotte Schluter Bashforth (Paul) and Anne Schluter (Sasha Jonas); stepdaughters, Heather Van Ness (Sam Won) and Hilary Westdijk (Wibo); and grandchildren, Sotirios and Panayiotis Amitsis, Lucy and Tom Bashforth, Corinna and Cecilia Won, and Jack and Joop Westdijk,. He is also survived by his brother Bill Schluter (Nancy), his ex-wife Jacquelin Turbidy, and numerous nephews and nieces. He was predeceased by his parents and his brothers John and Frederick Schluter. The family requests that donations in his name be made to Hospice (see information below) in lieu of gifts: Visiting Nurse Association Health Group Hospice, c/o Foundation Office, 23 Main Street, Suite D1, Holmdel, NJ 07733. Services are private under the direction of the Wilson Apple Funeral Home, 2560 Pennington Road, Pennington, NJ 08534. Condolences may be made to www. wilsonapple.com. OBITUARY
DAVID LEE MARTINDALEDavid Lee Martindale passed away peacefully in his sleep at the age of 64 on June 15 at his home on Sanibel. David, or Captiva Dave, as he was known to some, was born in Detroit, Michigan. He became a longtime resident of Harbor Springs, Michigan, where he raised a family and was a registered nurse at McLaren Hospital in Petoskey, Michigan. For years, Dave and his family had been vacationing on Captiva until he and his wife decided to make Southwest Florida their home. Living on both Captiva and Sanibel, he resumed his operating room responsibilities at HealthPark Medical Center in Fort Myers. His days were spent helping others and forming lasting and meaningful friendships with his colleagues. Daves passion for health and well-being translated to his personal life. An avid cyclist, Dave was skilled on a bike and could often be seen putting in miles on the popular routes of Sanibel and Captiva. His fitness was his favorite hobby alongside following sports. Dave was a fan all sports, but nothing came close to his lifetime devotion to the Detroit Lions, which would have tested the will of any lesser man. Along with his wife, David was committed to protecting the natural ecosystem of these islands. The JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge and CROW were two of his favorite places on the island. He could also be seen jumping out of the car to help a turtle cross San-Cap Road or stopping traffic to make sure a stray egret made its way across Periwinkle Way. Dave is survived by his beloved wife, Jeanette (Jan); children, Christopher and Jennifer; son-in-law Desmond LaVelle; granddaughter Cora LaVelle; sister-in-law Marie Athans; and his siblings, Richard Jr., Terry, Wade and Lisa. OBITUARY 5 ISLAND SUN JUNE 29, 2018 Lions Receive Library UpdateSanibel Public Library Executive Director Margaret Muhundro gave members of the Sanibel Captiva Lions Club an update on the year-long Your Library Reimagined project as guest speaker at the June 20 dinner meeting. The library was built 25 years ago, with the computer lab added 12 years ago. Obsolete infrastructure and responding to the ever-changing needs of users are two areas the librarys board of commissioners analyzed when it started planning the major upgrade in 2015. Its our goal to be finished in early fall, but there will be an announcement when we know for sure, said Muhundro. Your Library Reimagined plans include rearranging the floor plan for greater service and to include more modular options. There will be both behind-the-scenes remodeling to maximize efficiency and lower operating costs, plus functional updates to both public and staff spaces. Those improvements include larger windows to maximize the natural light and views; four new study rooms; Guest speaker Margaret Muhundro photo provided enhanced catalog searching with more material to borrow; digital signage; two computer labs with the fastest internet available; a flexible Maker Space; mobile shelving and furniture that can be moved to host large events; updated spaces for children and teens; plus revised outdoor courtyard space. There will also be a new Archives Room with digitization capabilities for easier scanning of local and historic photos. A bike-up and walk-up book drop off box will be added. However, Muhundro said the expanded reading porch has a lot of library patrons excited. You can now sit out there quietly, without the several loud air conditioning units kicking on, she said. Lions also learned the library has been recognized as one of the best libraries in the country and named a five-star library by Library Journal which awards rankings to 260 libraries out of more than 7,000 nationwide. The Sanibel Public Library holds an integral place in the community. Its a place where islanders and visitors go to read, learn and interact. Its all due to the support of our community, which we appreciate, said Muhundro. We must also contribute the librarys success to our great staff. The next guest speaker will be Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation Education Director Kristie Anders on Wednesday, July 18. Meetings start with cocktails and appetizers at 6 p.m. and dinner, catered by Sanibel Catering Company, is served at 7 p.m. Visiting Lions and anyone interested in joining are welcome.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 29, 20186 HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY FROM YOUR FRIENDS AT SEALIFE FASHION DIAMONDS ESTATE Periwinkle Place Shops Sanibel Island 239-472-4177 CongressJewelers.com Shell Museums Van Visits Childrens HospitalHave you seen the one-of-a-kind van adorned with a snail on a skateboard being propelled by a rocket on its back cruising the streets of Sanibel and Captiva lately? The BaileyMatthews National Shell Museums Mollusks on the Move wheels have been making waves throughout Southwest Florida. The Mollusks on the Move program was developed in 2017 with the mission of connecting local children with the natural world through their love of seashells. To date, Mollusks on the Move has reached more than 3,000 students in Lee, Collier, Hendry and Sarasota counties at schools, festivals, camps and county parks. Thanks to great partners like Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida, Mollusks on the Move will bring their touch tanks to young hospital patients each month. Most recently, on May 7, June 12 and June 19, the program provided several very special children with the unique opportunity to experience these animals firsthand. Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida is a new partner for the museum. Its support of the Mollusks on the Move educational platform is yet another example of its commitment to children. The only childrens hospital between Tampa and Fort Lauderdale, Golisano Childrens Hospital is the regions leader in pediatric medicine, and focuses on the health and wellbeing of children and their families, from infancy through age 21. The leadership team at Golisano Childrens Hospital, Americas newest childrens hospital, found it easy to partner with such a unique and enterprising project focused on educating children. This mobile program keeps children close to home and connects them to our environment in an exciting and innovative way, said Armando Llechu, Golisano Childrens Hospital Chief Administrative Officer. Keeping children close to home is our mission at Golisano Childrens Hospital, too, so we are proud and excited to support the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum and the Mollusks on the Move program. We are certain the program will pique interest, inspire curiosity and creativity, and enrich the lives of children throughout Southwest Florida. Mollusks on the Move focuses on mollusk ecology, behavior and reproduction to foster lifelong learning and respect for the sciences. The program includes an introduction to Southwest Florida shells and touch tank demonstrations with live mollusks, and provides students with a keepsake shell and their own laminated BaileyMatthews National Shell Museum Shell Guide. Museum educator Leigh Gay has the privilege of driving the new van to visit the patients at Golisano. Mollusks are a great way to distract patients from whatever ails them, Gay said. The kids are immediately mesmerized by these slimy, odd and shelled creatures. I am looking forward to each of our upcoming visits at Golisano. After meeting the mollusks, many patients have fun describing their favorites: The Shark Eye is so slimy! My favorite part was when the Fighting Conch flipped over with its foot. It was really fast! One patient was so enthusiastic about mollusks that she vowed to find them at the beach and show her parents as soon as she gets out of the hospital. I didnt even know they were out there!, she added. Mollusks on the Move benefits children and parents alike. Many of these families never get a chance to explore the beach, so meeting the live mollusks who create the beautiful shells can be a life-changing experience. The program represents hands-on science at its best and inspires all ages to learn more about the natural environment around us. To learn more about Mollusks on the Move, contact Leigh Gay at the museum at firstname.lastname@example.org or 395-2233.

Departing McCarthys Marina on Captiva aboard Captiva Cruises motor catamaran The Playtime, students and Immokalee Foundation teachers cruised the waters of Pine Island Sound en route to Cayo Costa State Park. In addition to having fun in the Gulf of Mexico, students observed some of the inhabitants of the Gulf Beach and Tidal Zone habitats, including sand dollars, mole crabs, coquina clams, horseshoe crabs as well as the variety of mollusk shells. For some of these students it was their first experience being in ocean water and being on an island. Part of the cruise experience included using a trawling net for a random sample of marine life within the Back Bay Estuary. Captiva Cruises Educator Richard Finkel described characteristics and adaptations of the fish and other marine life pulled up in the net, which included sea stars, hermit crabs, pin fish, grunt fish, trigger fish, all of which were released back into the shallow sea grass habitat. Students were amazed at the abundance and variety of life. The Immokalee Foundation is dedicated to building pathways of success for the children of Immokalee. The NCLOS is a collaborative endeavor of The SanibelCaptiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) and Captiva Cruises which strives to provide the opportunity for the younger generation of Southwest Florida to gain a firsthand learning experience and exposure to our coastal environment. SCCF and Captiva Cruises have been partners in many environmental education programs over the past 25 years. SCCF, founded in 1967, is dedicated to the conservation of coastal habitats and aquatic resources on Sanibel and Captiva and in the surrounding watershed. Captiva Cruises, established in 1987, is a multi-faceted boat tour company offering a variety of excursions in Pine Island Sound. For more information about the No Child left On Shore Environmental Education Outreach project, including sponsorship opportunities, contact SCCF at 472-2329 or visit www.sccf.org or contact Captiva Cruises at 472-5300 or visit www.captivacruises.com. Waiver Granted For Bookstore Projectby Jeff LysiakDuring Tuesdays Sanibel Planning Commission session, an application for a waiver to allow a 40-squarefoot addition to the front of a commercial building to be within the minimum required front yard setback was unanimously approved. The applicant, owners of Genes Books, is proposing to redevelop the lot, located at 2422 Periwinkle Way (formerly the longtime home of She Sells Sea Shells), and bring a number of nonconforming elements of the property into conformity. The applicants proposed site improvements include new driveway and parking areas, an onsite stormwater retention system, connection to the central sewer system, and new landscaping compliant with buffer standards, the planning department staff reports reads, in part. The building improvements include the replacement of windows/doors, the addition of a second floor, and the addition of two store front window display areas one of which will encroach within the minimum required 100-foot front yard setback. According to Roy Gibson, senior planner and acting director of planning, told commissioners that all proposed building improvements including the planned additions will comply with height and floor area limits for the TCL Town Center Limited Commercial District. While the waiver application was the only item before the commission on June 26, the applicant will submit a development permit short form application, which will be reviewed by planning department staff. The applicant is investing in bringing this property into conformity, including parking, stormwater drainage and a substantial landscaping plan, said Gibson. During deliberations on the application, commissioners learned that the proposed parking plan includes a single handicapped-designated parking space in the front of the building, near the bookstore entrance, with all standard parking spaces located in the rear. Arthur Monahan, contractor for the project, explained that the proposed addition to the existing building is a four-foot bump out to be utilized as a book shelf display, which is basically only an aesthetic change to the structure. He also reported that the proposed second floor addition will create a balcony space with railings to overlook the sales floor. The owners wanted to create an old English feel, said Monahan, who noted the buildings interior will include cherry wood polished with a high-end finish. Several members of the commission expressed their pleasure in reviewing the application. Its nice to see a project like this come before us, said Karen Storjohann. I think its a great plan and a great use of the property, added Matt Kirchner. Following some additional discussion, Commission Vice Chair Dirk deWerff made a motion to approve the waiver application, which was seconded by Commissioner Roger Grogman and passed by a 6 to 0 vote. Commissioner Chuck Ketteman was absent and excused from the meeting.

Watercolors by Betsy Conrad will be on view in Fellowship Hall throughout July and August. I started painting twelve years ago when I accompanied a friend to her watercolor class, said Conrad. The teacher loaned me her palette, brushes and some paper, as I had no suppliesand that day was the beginning of my love for watercolors. I took classes and workshops to hone my skills and joined the Southern Arizona Watercolor Guild in Tucson, Arizona, where I lived at that time. I participated in many of the guilds shows and served as treasurer on their board of directors. Conrad, who now lives at the Shell Point Retirement Village in Fort Myers, is a member of both the Painters Guild at Shell Point and the San-Cap Art League. While watercolors are my main joy, I also love to experiment with acrylics, collage and whatever other materials I can use to achieve the creative results I envision, she added. Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ is located at 2050 Periwinkle Way. Conrads paintings are for sale, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the church. The exhibit may be seen during office hours when Fellowship Hall is not otherwise being used and on Sundays after services. The church offers services at 10 a.m. in July and August in a traditional format in July and a blended format in August. For more information, call the church office at 472-0497.

Plant SmartName That Clusterby Gerri ReavesWhen deciding what to include in a low-maintenance wildlife-friendly landscape, you can choose from an abundance of native shrubs, wildflowers, vines and trees in an array of colors and forms. Pictured here are only three possibilities. Can you identify them by their flower clusters? Helpful hints: One is a shrub, one is an endangered species, and one is usually a volunteer in the landscape, not a nursery purchase. That cluster of creamy white fivepetaled flowers belongs to small-leaf, or Walters, viburnum ( Viburnum obovatum ), a member of the honeysuckle family. This semi-evergreen highly drought-tolerant shrub or small tree has become very popular for residential and commercial landscapes. The leaves are basically oval, often with irregular edges. The flowers appear winter to spring and attract bees and butterflies. Birds eat the small black berries and the twiggy foliage provides nesting habitat and cover for them. Use this versatile plant as a border, hedge, screen, or accent plant. Pineland lantanas ( Lantana depressa ) creamy pale tubular flowers attract bees and butterflies too. Also called Florida or rockland lantana, this species is highly saltand drought-tolerant. A member of the verbena family, it is low-growing with woody stems. It prefers full sun and produces delicately scented blooms throughout the year. Virtually no maintenance is required, except occasional cutting back. This species is listed as endangered in the state, a result of the destruction of its native habitat, Florida pine rocklands. Adding to the plants woes is the contamination of its gene pool by nonnative lantanas, specifically the invasive Lantana camara. Be sure to purchase pineland lantana from a reputable native-plant nursery to help safeguard this native from extinction. Numerous tiny buds make up the tight flat pink clusters of marsh fleabane ( Pluchea odorata ). Those fuzzy flowers are a familiar sight in South Florida, for the wildflower is wind-dispersed, readily reseeds and volunteers in yards, as well as in a wide range of wild and disturbed sites. This member of the aster family has oval or elliptical aromatic leaves. Another of its common names, cure-for-all, refers to the plants numerous medicinal uses. It prefers full sun but will grow in almost any conditions and even tolerates salt and salt spray. The profuse blooms attract bees, wasps and butterflies all year, so consider letting it stay if it shows up in your yard. Seeds are available from native plant enthusiasts and cooperatives. Plant Smart explores the diverse flora of South Florida. March fleabane attracts birds and butterflies and blooms all year long Pineland lantana is listed as endangered in Florida. Its tubular flowers bloom throughout the year and attract butterflies and other pollinators.

Join SCCF For Turtle TracksEvery Thursday at 10 a.m., join SCCF to learn about the sea turtles that are nesting now on island beaches. SCCF volunteers and staff monitor every inch of our beaches daily looking for new nests laid the night before. Some of the early nests are beginning to hatch. For only the second time in recent history, one of the worlds most endangered sea turtles, the Kemps ridley, nested on Sanibel and the nest has hatched. Even though Kemps grow up in our local backbay waters, all of the adult females usually nest only on the northern Mexico and southern Texas beaches in mass nesting events called arribadas. The SCCF Nature Center is located at 3333 Sanibel Captiva Road. Cost to attend the Turtle Tracks program is $5, with SCCF members and children admitted free.

Call Madeline for Reservations Girl Scouts Donate Supplies To Sea Schoolsubmitted by Leah BieryGirl Scouts from Cape Coral-based Troop 210 recently visited Sanibel Sea School to deliver a donation of supplies for the organizations camp and ocean outreach programs. Donated items included art supplies and campus necessities like toilet paper and cleaning products. Troop 210 chose Sanibel Sea School as their 2018 nonprofit to support because many of the members had participated in camps and field trips there and wanted to give other students a chance to have meaningful ocean experiences as well. Each year, Girl Scout troops donate a portion of their cookie profits in the form of material goods to a local nonprofit that is important to them, said group leader Michelle Sedorchuk. Troop members are invited to make presentations about potential organizations they would like to support, then the group votes to select a favorite. Our service unit has partnered with Sanibel Sea School for programs these past two years, and has plans in the works for future programs, Sedorchuk added. Many of the girls in our troop have participated in those programs and have attended camps on their own. They truly love what Sanibel Sea School is all about, its mission and its employees. Although Girl Scouts prohibits troops from making monetary donations to other 501(c)3 nonprofits, the group was excited to shop for craft supplies and other essentials that would help support Sanibel Sea Schools summer camps, Free Community Camp Days, ocean outreach programs for landlocked kids and more. Our troop chose to donate to Sanibel Sea School because of their programs for kids and adults. They wouldnt be able to run these programs without help from the community, said ninth grader Zoe Sedorchuk. We are so grateful for Troop 210s donation, said Sanibel Sea Schools executive director, Dr. Bruce Neill. We truly rely on our community to help us provide meaningful ocean experiences for all. This group really thought about what we might need, and delivered supplies that will absolutely be used. And now we will be able to bring more landlocked kids to Sanibel to explore with us.

BOGO Campers at Sanibel Sea School spent the second week of summer camp learning about nudibranchs and plovers two very exciting marine science topics. Nudibranch Week at the organizations Flagship Campus was all about the tiny, vibrantly colored marine gastropods, and Baby Plover Week at Canterbury School offered a chance for younger campers to celebrate some of Sanibels most adorable birds. Nudibranchs absorb their colors and defensive toxins from their food, so Nudibranch Week campers painted their faces with the colors of their favorite snacks, then tie-dyed T-shirts to express their own vibrant personalities. Nudibranch tag and searching for sea slugs in the intertidal zone were also some of participants favorite activities. Plovers are tiny birds with elaborate mating rituals that nest on Sanibels beaches. During Baby Plover Week, children ages 4 to 6 did their best baby bird impressions, practicing beach camouflage and protecting their nests. They also tried using binoculars and made some beautiful plover art. As usual, both weeks included plenty of time for surfing, macram tying and hanging out with camp friends. Sanibel Sea School also hosted Have Paddleboard, Will Survive Week a paddling and survival camp for teens. Sanibel Sea School is a 501c3 nonprofit whose mission is to improve the oceans future, one person at a time. For more, visit www.sanibelseaschool.org.

Barramundi Fishing In Floridaby Capt. Matt MitchellBarramundi is a close relative of the snook and native to northern Australia. They can grow to over 100 pounds and have been a bucket list fish for me for a long time. A few months ago, I came across a place in St Cloud, Florida that has Barramundistocked ponds and offers anglers a chance to catch these very cool fish without traveling thousands of miles. This is the only place in the U.S. in fact the northern hemisphere that you can catch one. Without knowing what to expect, I pulled out the credit card and booked the trip online. After a spending the night in Orlando, it was about an hour drive. Upon arrival, we met the owners, Kim and her husband Byron, on this large spring-fed property that for several generations had farmraised, fresh water aquarium fish. The story goes that an Australian company went into business with them to farm-raise Barramundis for food until the freeze of 2010 wiped it all out. At the time of the freeze, they had fish in these ponds as large as 22 pounds.. I had never been on a fishing trip anything like this before. Kim loaded us on a decked-out golf cart set up for fishing and away we went around a man-made lake. It did a little while to get these fish dialed in on what and how they wanted to eat. After slow-bouncing a chartreuse soft-plastic jig with a barbless hook, the action started. These fish suck a bait down just like a snook and make the close to the same powerful strong runs and jumps. On closer inspection, they not only have a resemblance to a snook, but mouths and gill plate rackers a lot like a tripletail and large scales like a tarpon. The 4,000 Barramundis they have now have only been in this pond since November when Byron and Kim went back into the Barramundi business for themselves. These fish were purchased and released as one pound fish. In the seven months they have had them, they have already grown to an impressive average size of three to five pounds with some as large as seven pounds. Their plan is to keep this first pond as a larger trophy fishery as they are now starting another pond as a sustainable fish farm. Barramundi is excellent to eat and very close to the taste of snook. This unconventional fishing from the bank was a blast with us hooking more fish in a few hours than I can count. Many of the fish throw the barbless hook when they jump. Keeping a tight line on them was key to staying hooked up. Being close to Orlando, I had no idea what to expect and had my fingers crossed this would not be like a theme park of fishing. Kim and Byron have this operation set up really well with only one group fishing at a time. Im already looking forward to taking another trip up and enjoying their pets as they continue to grow. Maybe next time on a fly rod. 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: Black-Crowned Night Heron by Bob PetcherThe blackcrowned night heron ( Nycticorax nycticorax ) is unlike most herons in appearance. Instead of being thin and rangy like that of a blue heron, it is more or less stocky and compact. It has a thick neck that gets tucked into its body to create a hunchback look. When in flight, this heron tucks in its neck so much that it can appear neck-less. Black-crowned night herons often spend their days perched on tree limbs or hidden among foliage and branches. Also unlike most herons, this species forages in the evening and at night, usually in water, on mudflats and on land. Studies say they do so to avoid competition with other herons that use the same habitat during the day. Regarded as the most widespread heron in the world, the black-crowned night heron breeds in colonies and nests in groups that include other herons, egrets and ibises. They are so widespread that they are called a cosmopolitan species due to their ability to nest on every continent except Australia and Antarctica. The black-crowned night heron adult has a dark-colored cap and backside to contrast its pale white or gray underside and wings. The appearance of juvenile blackcrowned night herons is in complete contrast. They have less of a hunchback posture, and their plumage is more brown and streaky. Young blackcrowned night herons leave the nest at the age of one month but cannot fly until they are six weeks old. They often move through the vegetation on foot and join foraging flocks at night. At CROW, a juvenile black-crowned night heron was admitted from Fort Myers after reportedly falling out of its nest. The finder reportedly did see the bird falling from a high nest onto the ground and suspected that the heron could have suffered trauma. Upon examination, it was noted that the heron was thin, and its right leg was bruised and slightly bent. Radiographs confirmed it had sustained a fracture to the tarsometatarsus bone of the injured leg. The tarsometatarsal bone is common in most bird species, said Dr. Malka Spektor, CROW veterinary intern. It is the long bone above the foot and below the hock joint. The hock joint is what looks like a birds knee, but is more comparable to a human ankle. CROW medical staff noted the fracture had already begun to heal, but not enough that the fracture was stable. The fracture showed signs it was healing prior to the bird being admitted to the clinic. It had radiographic evidence of healing, but it was not 100 percent stable, so a splint was used for added stability, said Dr. Spektor. Veterinarians placed its leg in a splint, and the bird was provided with subcutaneous fluids and pain medication. After two weeks in the clinic, the patient appears to be recovering nicely. The splint was removed over the weekend, added Dr. Spektor. The patient will continue with further cage rest while it continues to heal, and then will need continued care until it reaches an age where it can hunt and survive on its own.

Shell Of The WeekGulf Dove Snailby Jos H. Leal, PhD, BaileyMatthews National Shell Museum Science Director and CuratorThe Gulf Dove Snail, Costoanachis semiplicata (Stearns, 1873), is one of the largest local dove snails (family Columbellidae), reaching about 16 mm (about 0.6 inch). It is also one of the most elegant; its shell is fusiform, slender, with straight sides, with a sculpture of about 12 ribs per shell whorl (one-turn). The shell aperture (opening) is narrow, with denticles (little teeth) on its outer lip. The color is usually light-grayish, or light grayish-brown, with reddish-brown markings.

21 ISLAND SUN JUNE 29, 2018 The Long Haulby Dr. Bruce NeillWe recently hosted a camp for teenagers that included an epic paddle from the Causeway Park to Fort Myers Beach. Thats quite a distance for young teenagers who are new to paddling. I was driving the chase boat, providing a safety net if necessary, along with water and words of encouragement. I spent most of my time with two young ladies who were determined to complete the five-and-a-half-mile paddle, but realized that it was going to be hard. For these two, the paddle was probably close to 5,000 paddle strokes, and all after they had spent the night on Picnic Island, sleeping fitfully while avoiding bugs and coping with heat and rain. Very quickly, they developed a cadence and began to realize that their success was a function of how efficient they could make each paddle stroke. From their experience, we can learn and think about paddling efficiency. With each stroke, try a few things. First, pretend your arms are as soft as cooked pasta. This helps you use your larger and more efficient core muscles. At the end of every stroke, relax your bottom hand as you bring the paddle back to the forward position. Never grasp the paddle with a tight grip. Think about inserting your paddle into the water, then pulling yourself past it. Work diligently to make every stroke as silent as possible. A noisy paddle is an inefficient paddle. I am a dedicated paddler, and I focus on form and cadence to maximize my speed and distance. Most of the time, I paddle for aerobic exercise and a little quiet time with the ocean. Im not suggesting that you must do that, but if you spend some time on every trip focusing on paddling techniques, you will find that you will soon be able to more easily explore a larger area of the ocean with less effort. These two young ladies were successful in their long voyage and earned the pride that comes with a hard challenge well accomplished. Ocean Tribe Paddlers is a club that helps the Southwest Florida paddling community better explore, enjoy and understand the ocean.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 29, 201824 Restaurant Mural Captures Faces Of Islands Pastby Jeff LysiakDuring last weeks Leisure Lunchers outing with the Island Seniors, artist Tim Macko shared the story of how he created the now-iconic mural painted on the main wall inside Cips Place, who came up with the idea for adding the portraits of Sanibel and Captiva notables at the restaurant, and the enduring legacy of the artwork. According to Macko, the notion of installing a mural at the restaurant was the brainchild of Katie Gardenia, the longtime island artist, author and entrepreneur. Katie came up with the idea of a mural after visiting a restaurant in San Antonio, Texas, said Macko, who told the group he was commissioned to create the painting for Gardenias Mermaid Kitchen eatery back in 2000. She just handed me a folder with a bunch of photos, drawings and newspaper clippings in it. Other than a list of 60 historic notables to be included in the mural, which includes many nationally known figures (including inventor Thomas Edison, author Anne Morrow Lindbergh, Spanish explorer Ponce deLeon and United States President Theodore Teddy Roosevelt), island icons (including Captiva fisherman Andy Rosse, realtor Priscilla Murphy, fisherwoman Esperanza Woodring, the Bailey brothers John, Francis and Sam and handyman/ fisherman Edmund Gavin) and lesser known folks (such as Unknown Fisherman, as he is identified in the official identification map distributed to restaurant patrons), Macko was given complete creative freedom for the project. The first thing I thought was How am I going to do this? Macko recalled. I wasnt a portrait painter, but I became a portrait painter after doing this. Using 11 colors in his acrylic palette, Macko and fellow artist Jill Baugher spent three months working on the mural. The first portrait he painted on the wall was Jay Norwood Ding Darling, the renowned political cartoonist and conservationist. In between the portraits, Macko weaved a garland of gardenias as a tribute to Katie Gardenia along with other native vegetation and wildlife. Asked by one member of the Island Seniors which portrait gave him the most difficulty, Macko offered a quick response. I was really stressed about painting Robert Rauschenberg, he said with a laugh. He was still alive at the time, so I knew there was a chance he would probably see it. Although a majority of people included in the mural have long since passed, there are several famous islanders who are still living. They include Charles LeBuff, Porter Goss, Ralph Woodring, Dick Muench and Willard Scott. Now, nearly two decades after creating the painting, Macko stated that he remains very pleased with his artwork and the attention it has garnered over the years. Its really held up well, but I have come back a few times to touch it up, said the artist, who noted that the mural now contains 79 portraits. The whole thing really transpired organically. Im so grateful to have had the opportunity to do this. Cips Place is located at 2055 Periwinkle Way on Sanibel. The next Leisure Lunchers outing with the Island Seniors will be held on Tuesday, July 10 at Sweet Melissas Caf. Advanced registration is required; separate checks will be provided. A special lunch excursion to The Off Broadway Palm Theatre will be held on Wednesday, July 18. Following lunch at Cristofs on McGregor Boulevard in Fort Myers, the group will take in a production of The Savannah Sipping Society. Cost is $39 for members and $49 for non-members. Limited seating is available and advanced registration is required. Transportation will be via carpool.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 29, 201826 The Community HousePassion Fruit by Resident Chef Jarred HarrisPassion fruit, also known as grenadille, maracuja or parcha, is the fruit of a certain type of vine native to South America. This round, sweet, seedy fruit is actually a berry and considered an aphrodisiac. The vine of this delicious fruit also produces a beautiful flower and thats where the story behind its name comes from. Around the early 1700s, Christian missionaries landed in South America and discovered the passion flower. The missionaries believed that the flower signified their success and the passion of Jesus. The five petals of the flower represented the crucifixion wounds of Christ and the corona of the flower symbolizes the crown of thorns around Christs head. There are two varieties of passion fruit, and they are generally purple or yellow in color. The purple variety are smaller in size, have more flavor and the most common type found in the United States. Florida, California and Hawaii produce purple passion fruit commercially. The yellow passion fruit is the most cultivated variety in the world and is grown in Australia and throughout tropical parts of Asia. Passion fruit has been growing in popularity among the health conscious. The fruit contains powerful antioxidants, vitamins A and C, dietary fiber, iron, potassium, magnesium, riboflavin and niacin. The fruit also contains antiinflammatory properties and is used to treat asthma and osteoarthritis. Having trouble sleeping or feeling anxious? Passion fruit and passion flowers contain an alkaloid called harman. Harmon has a mild sedative effect and is used as a sleep aid. If you have never eaten passion fruit, buy a couple and try this recipe: Passion Fruit Crme Brulee Ingredients 1 quart heavy cream 1 vanilla bean (split and scraped) cup sugar (plus cup sugar for burning) 6 large egg yolks cup passion fruit pulp Hot water Method Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Place the cream, vanilla bean and its pulp into a medium saucepan set over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat, cover and allow to sit for 5 minutes. Remove the vanilla pod. In a medium bowl, whisk together cup sugar, egg yolks and passion fruit, until well blended. Add the cream to the yolk mixture, a little at a time, stirring continually until all the cream is combined. Pour the liquid into six (6 to 8-ounce) ramekins. Place the ramekins into a large cake pan or roasting pan. Pour enough hot water into the pan to come halfway up the sides of the ramekins. Cover the pan with foil and bake just until the crme brulee is set, but still trembling in the center (approximately 30 to 40 minutes). Remove the ramekins from the roasting pan and refrigerate for at least 2 hours and up to 3 days. Divide the remaining cup sugar equally among the six dishes and spread evenly on top. Using a torch, melt the sugar and form a crispy top. Allow the creme brulee to sit for at least 5 minutes before serving.

27 ISLAND SUN JUNE 29, 2018 Poets Corner by Hannah Star RogersMorning on Sanibel Islandby Crystal H. RogersEarly, when the sun makes a golden path across the water clouds build cities on the horizon blue and grey, with pink skies, treasures from the surf scatter in the whack line. Inch by inch the sun climbs, path across the water turns silver, gulls and terns collect at the water line, sanderlings and sandpipers race up and down, legs running in a blur, in the surf a heron and egrets stand and look longingly across the water, pelicans fly past in groups of five or six. Three women carrying shell scoops walk among the egrets in the shallows, heads down. Neither women nor egrets seem aware of each other. One woman leans on a cane as she checks the contents of her scoop. Some, hoping to mend their health power walk the beach. I stroll leisurely, waiting for the stillness after surf and wind and sky clear the detritus from my soul Hannah Star Rogers holds an MFA from Columbia University and a PhD from Cornell University.

Groundbreaking Exhibition At Gallery June 29 Florida SouthWestern State College is honored to announce an opening reception and public preview of Jack Kerouac & Ed Ruscha: On the Road at the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery with a public preview reception on Friday, June 29 from 6 to 7 p.m. There will also be a special performance by legendary Kerouac-collaborator David Amram from 7 to 9 p.m. Pairing renowned West Coast Pop/Conceptual painter Ed Ruschas illustrated edition of the classic Kerouac novel with the authors original 1951 manuscript for the first time, this groundbreaking exhibition brings together two of 20th Century Americas most visionary and influential artists. Single-spaced without paragraph breaks on a continuous 120-foot-long paper scroll, the late, great writer Jack Kerouac completed this first draft of On the Road and forever defined the restless Beat Generation with his 1928 Underwood Portable typewriter at over 100 words per minute in just 20 caffeineand Benzedrine-fueled days. It is praised by Allen Ginsberg as a magnificent single paragraph, several blocks long, rolling, like the road itself. Its about a group of crazy young people who just travel back and forth across the United States, said Ruscha. Sometimes they hitch-hike and sometimes they drive cars. They steal cars and just want to be on the road... At age 18, Ruscha rolled into Los Angeles in a customized 1950 Ford to study painting, photography and graphic design at the Chouinard Art Institute (now CalArts). A friend and collaborator of Bob Rauschenberg, Ruschas work has been widely collected and shown extensively by major museums around the world including representing the United States in Italy at the 2005 Venice Biennale.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 29, 201828 SUN Book ReviewThe Crooked Staircase by Di SaggauJane Hawk is at it again, risking her life to find who is behind a terrifying conspiracy that threatens the freedom and free will of millions. Dean Koontzs The Crooked Staircase is the second book about Janes search for the mind-control conspiracy that caused the suicide of her decorated Marine husband, and many others. Jane is living on borrowed time because there is a slew of powerful people who want her dead, and they seem to have the means to carry this out. In the meantime, she continues her one-woman war against the conspiracy that is escalating across the country. Jane is a rogue FBI agent, a wanted fugitive, relentlessly hunted by the government and by the secret cabal behind the plot. High on her list to capture is Booth Hendrickson, a corrupt Department of Justice figure who uses sophisticated surveillance technology to track both Jane and her young son. He is a cunning man with connections in high places, a twisted soul of unspeakable depths. Wait til you hear about his mother-from-hell who is high up in the group that is planning a new world order. Its goal is a fully corrected civilization that can be kept stable more easily if a significant part of its population is motivated to perform only as they are instructed to perform and are shorn of any incentive to achieve more than others. Jane makes her way from Southern California to the snow-swept slopes of Lake Tahoe to confront head-on the lethal forces arrayed against her. Shes propelled by her righteous fury and implacable insistence on justice, but nothing can prepare her for the chilling truth that awaits when she descends the crooked staircase to the dark and dreadful place where her long nightmare was born. The Jane Hawk thrillers represent Dean Koontz at his best with heartstopping suspense, unparalleled characters and atmosphere, and twisting, chilling storylines. The Crooked Staircase is an excellent read, however it still doesnt tell us who is at the head of the conspiracy. I am hopeful that the next book in the series, The Forbidden Door, will answer that question. Having read a few paragraphs of this book that was included in my copy of The Crooked Staircase I look forward to reading it with high hopes that the story will finally come to a conclusion. School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My son just completed third grade, and he seems to be a very good reader. He can sound out most of the words that he sees and has high test scores. His teacher has said that he should practice reading fluency this summer because this skill needs improvement. This is confusing to me. Is he a good reader or not? Will his grades go down? Alisha W, Fort Myers Alisha, I can understand why you are feeling confused about your sons reading skills since you are hearing two different messages about them. Reading fluency is the next major step or skill after decoding that makes for a proficient reader. Its wonderful that your son is successful with decoding as sounding out words can be quite difficult but he must also have strong reading fluency to become a competent and fluid reader. Reading Rockets, an online reading site defines fluency as the ability to read with speed, accuracy and proper expression. In order to understand what they read, children must be able to read fluently whether they are reading aloud or silently. When reading aloud, fluent readers read in phrases and add intonation appropriately. The National Reading Panel (2000) describes the fluent reader as students who can decode text accurately, read at an acceptable rate and read aloud with appropriate expression. Fluency skills include the ability to read text accurately and quickly. Fluency bridges word decoding and comprehension. Comprehension is understanding what has been read. Fluency is a set of skills that allows continued on page 43 Fresh ingredients, simplicity, love... the recipe for a treasured dining experience Chef/Owner AJ Black7 Days 5-10 pm 751 Tarpon Bay Road Sanibel Island, FL Reservations Suggested www.iltesoro.net 239-395-4022 FINE ITALIAN CUISINEIL TESORO RISTORANTEinspired by Island Fare in a bistro styleVOTED BEST CHEFBEST OF THE ISLANDS AWARDTASTE OF THE ISLANDS IRON CHEF WINNER AJ BLACKCelebrating Our 10 Year AnniversaryExtensive New Wine List Tasting Menu SUNSET DINING 4:30-6:30 P.M. 3-Course Tasting Starting at $19.95 Island RestaurantEnjoy Indoor & Outdoor Dining in a Casual and Friendly Atmosphere.Lunch & Dinner11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.Happy Hour Daily4 to 6 p.m.239-472-02232055 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel, FL 33957 Located in the Forever Green Shopping Center www.CipsPlace.comW G A R D L P F F T Or Af Jean Le Boeuf, News-Press food

Westland joined the staff of Ding Darling in 2002 as environmental education specialist. She transferred to the refuge from a position as environmental educator for the Corps of Engineers at the Lake Okeechobee Waterway, which she began in 1998 as a graduate of the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point with a major in natural resource management, emphasis on environmental education. In 2009, Ding Darling administration promoted Westland to her current position. She remains intrinsically involved in environmental education through her work overseeing visitor services at the refuge. Westland has received many awards along the way, including a U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Regional Directors Award for her curriculum design and proactive approach to resolving student transportation problems to the refuge. With the help of Ding Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge (DDWS) and contributions, she arranged private busing for thousands of kids each year, a private-public partnership program that continues to this day. Earlier this year, Westland accepted the Florida chapter of The Wildlife Societys (FLTWS) 2018 Outstanding Educator Award. Toni has demonstrated exemplary service to her country in the past 20 years, said Tritaik. Her contributions to Ding Darling have been immeasurable. It has been an honor to serve with her and present her this milestone award. Ranger Toni Westland with Wildlife Refuge Manager Paul Tritaik photo providedMeals-By-FISH Assists IslandersThe Meals-by-FISH program delivers one hot nutritious meal per day, up to five days per week, including extras for the weekend to island neighbors. Working in partnership with Baileys General Store, Chefs Karl and JT work tirelessly preparing the Meals-byFISH menu, while their staff sorts, bags and labels each meal on a daily basis. Each meal consists of a protein, starch and vegetable and runs on a two week set menu cycle. Meals may include oven roasted bone-in chicken with rice and vegetable, broiled Atlantic salmon with rice and vegetable, grilled chicken caesar salad, and more. Based on preferences or allergies, items may be substituted for a sub or salad, and the menu can be slightly modified to accommodate those with diabetes or other health conditions. This service is provided to anyone who requests meals. Many are older individuals who no longer cook; some are younger singles recovering from an illness or injury. Individuals may receive meals for any length of time and may opt in or out of the program as needed. Meals are picked up at 11:30 a.m., and delivery time varies depending on traffic, season and number of deliveries. Generally, meals are delivered approximately one hour after pick-up. All meals are subsidized and FISH charges $7 per meal for self-paying individuals, including delivery by FISH volunteers. While many pay for the cost of the meal themselves, others cannot afford to do so. On a case-by-case basis, FISH may subsidize a larger part or the entire cost of the meal, depending on the household situation. We have had some older folks suffer from poor nutrition because they were opting to pay prescription bills rather than buy food, says Maggi Feiner, FISH president and CEO. We are glad to be able to provide some financial assistance for instances like these. Jane, a neighbor utilizing the meals program five days per week, said: I want you to know what your program means to me. Im old, and its hard enough for me to get out and about these days, much less cook a meal. I cannot do the shopping, cause Im not moving around like I used to do. I am grateful to your group who delivers the meals and those wonderful people who cook them. Meatloaf with those mashed potatoes are so good. I could eat them every day. And I could visit with the people who bring the meals to me for hours, but Im sure they have better things to do than gab with an old lady. I want to you know that I have not taken what you, and all your wonderful volunteers, do for granted. Thank you FISH. Jane was referred to the Mealsby-FISH program by a concerned neighbor. Others are referred by community partners, and some simply call in to inquire or request meal delivery. To learn more about The Meals-by-FISH program, call 472-4775.

Sanibel, FL 33957 coin.decoratingden.com 239.472.6551 Water Quality Monitoring Efforts ExpandedThe Lee Board of County Commissioners unanimously approved agreements with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the U.S. Geological Survey that will expand water monitoring efforts in the Caloosahatchee watershed. New monitoring sites will be located in the Orange River near Buckingham, Telegraph Creek and Popash Creek. The additional stations within the Caloosahatchee watershed will enhance the countys understanding of water flow and basin nutrient loads in fulfillment of achieving the state-required Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) for the Caloosahatchee Estuary. The sites also will assist future flood response efforts by providing realtime flow information and calibration data for hydrologic/hydraulic modeling and analysis. The U.S. Geological Survey is paying for the installation of the three new water monitoring sites at a cost of $128,880. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection will reimburse Lee County for the operation and maintenance costs of two of the sites at a cost of $57,400 annually and the county will pay for the operation and maintenance of the third site at an annual cost of $28,700. Installation is expected to happen in late summer or early fall. The expansion brings the total number of monitoring sites in the basin to 12.

Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellThe great speaker at last Fridays San-Cap Rotary Club meeting was one of our own: Dorrie Hipschman, executive director of the BaileyMatthews National Shell Museum. Dorries topic for the day wasnt really devoted to the museum per se, but on a related topic: The Importance of Natural History Museums. Just to name drop a little, like the Field Museum in Chicago, the New York Museum of Natural History, the Smithsonian and of course the granddaddy of them all, the London Museum of Natural History. Hipschman made it a point to ardently tell us that natural history museums are libraries of the natural world. They keep irreplaceable samples of all the life found on earth. Most of us are familiar with the display case dioramas of animals and their habitats beautifully displayed it a virtual world just inside those glass cases or display collections of unusual and exotic taxidermied animals. However, that is not all that lies within the walls of a natural history museum. Take the elevator up or down from the public rooms in these museums and you will find collections of specimens of all sorts of animals, plants, geology, paleontology, etc. used for scientific study, along with current and historical records pertaining to these specimens. Rooms devoted to species of preserved squirrels, birds, beetles, draws of rattlesnakes, boxes of corals, packets of herbs and plants, etc. You name it, if it had a presence on earth, there is a collection of these species in a natural history museum. I like this description: cabinets of curiosities. Why? Because specimens can be studied, and a baseline established, species can be examined for changes due to natural environmental factors and human contributions to the environment. Some of these museums have what is called a type, the #1 specimen of a new life form. This is the specimen against which all other finds are measured. Theres a type for just about everything, except the para type of the American Buffalo, said Hipschman. Somehow, the Denver Natural History Museum lost type #1 and now its base type is American Buffalo #2. Whenever a new animal is found that maybe looks like a similar species, scientists go back to the original type to study similarities and differences. Of course, they check DNA. What are these scientists looking at? Well here are a few things: Environmental contaminants, introductions of diseases, the wide-spread use of pesticides (i.e. DDT) or anything that may affect and change the evolution of animals during their lifetime. When and why animals become extinct remember trilobites and dinosaurs, and why there might be an evolution regarding changes to an animal species and their habitants? A recent National Research Council report states that one priority of a defense plan should be to develop reference specimens and other taxonomic information for pests or pathogens likely to be used in bioterrorist attacks against U.S. agriculture, noted Hipschman. Now for the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum, a natural history museum that increases knowledge of, and appreciation for, mollusks and their shells using collections, programs, and expertise to inspire learning, support scientific research, and tell the story of mollusks importance to people and the natural world. The museum has researches from around the world that work with the Shell Museums collection about 500,000 specimens of 18,318 species, she said. Mollusks are some of the most endangered animals on the planet and the museums research can help identify the causes of natural and man-made dangers that are present and contributing toward their demise. From Wikipedia: The term seashell usually refers to the exoskeleton of an invertebrate (an animal without a backbone), and is typically composed of calcium carbonate or chitin. Most shells that are found on beaches are the shells of marine mollusks, partly because these shells are usually made of calcium carbonate, and endure better than shells made of chitin. Apart from mollusk shells, other shells that can be found on beaches are those of barnacles, horseshoe crabs and brachiopods. Marine annelid worms in the family Serpulidae create shells which are tubes made of calcium carbonate cemented onto other surfaces. The shells of sea urchins are called tests, and the molted shells of crabs and lobsters are called exuviae. While most seashells are external, some cephalopods have internal shells. How very lucky we are in Sanibel to have such a prestigious natural history museum the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum right here on island. The study and research going on at the museum helps identify what is happening in our oceans and water ways and helps plan for corrections based on information garnered from scientific study done. Big plans are ahead for the museum in the very near future, and Hipschmans talk helped us understand why these plans will include increasing research capabilities at the museum. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets Friday mornings at 7 a.m. at The Dunes Golf & Tennis Club. Guests are welcome.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 29, 201838 Superior InteriorsYour Personality Your Design Styleby Jeanie TinchDo you consider yourself a conservative person, or one who lives a little closer to the edge? Given a choice, would you choose to dress in a suit, khakis and a sweater, or do you go for more of a Bohemian look? Are you very detail-oriented, or do you prefer not to be bothered with the details? And lastly do you find it easy or difficult to envision something that doesnt exist yet? There are no right or wrong answers to these questions, however your individual responses are pretty good indicators of some basic personality characteristics. Those characteristics are accurate predictors of decorating style and how you will approach the decorating process in your home. This column is not a comprehensive study of the topic, but here are some examples of how your personality affects how you decorate. We may fit into some general decorating stereotypes but each of us are individuals, and those details make our homes reflect who we are. Lets look at the use of color. Those of us who are generally conservative tend to choose colors for our home that are safe. Soft tones are good, and neutrals are even better. Take note that there is a difference between safe and boring and sometimes that difference can be tricky. A person who lives a life a bit more on the edge is usually drawn to a color scheme that is more dramatic. Bolder and highly contrasting colors will be much more interesting to these people. The degree of formality that you choose for your home is also directly related to how formal or casual you are as a person. Are you most comfortable knowing that your appearance is very well-coordinated, tailored and traditional? Do you leave the house without your hair and make-up done? Or do you live in sweats whenever possible, and tend more towards attitude of What you see is what you get? The more readily you fall into this latter group, the more likely it is that you will prefer a very casual decorating style and vice versa. Our personalities are influenced by the way our brains function, i.e. which side of your brain is dominant. Strong left-brain thinkers tend to be very good at analytical processes while those with right brain dominance are more comfortable with creative thinking. This characteristic not only influences our likes and dislikes, but also has a huge impact on how we make decisions. People drawn to careers in engineering, finance or accounting are usually examples of strong left-brain thinkers. For these individuals, ambiguity is unsettling, and there may be difficulty in visualizing how something will look when it is done. If you fall into this category, you will want detailed design plans and illustrations of how the final product will look like. It will also be important that you have all the facts and have considered the options before making a decision. On the other hand, strong right brain thinkers tend to have no trouble conjuring up a mental image of the way a particular fabric will look on a window treatment, but prefer not to involve themselves with how it is constructed. They will make decisions based more upon how a design plan makes them feel rather than its factual details. Its a good idea to keep these principles in mind when you prepare to embark on a decorating project. If you will be tapping into the expertise of a design professional, their knowledge and sensitivity to your personality traits will assist them in facilitating a process that will insure a beautiful result.

Trust Advisors Presentation On Wealth TransferCypress Cove, a life plan community in Fort Myers, recently hosted a program on wealth transfer to approximately 40 residents. Wealth Services Advisors Robin L. Cook and Steven V. Greenstein of The Sanibel Captiva Trust Company presented How to Talk to Your Heirs About Managing Wealth, designed to outline what steps can be taken to prepare the next generation for inheriting significant assets. It is better to have a conversation about inheritance with your heirs sooner rather than later, said Cook. It allows your children to prepare for possibly substantial responsibilities, which may accompany the estate for which they will be responsible. She stresses that one of the most important steps in the process is a family meeting, which may include a variety of advisors, such as a trust and estate attorney, accountant, insurance agent and professional wealth manager. By introducing your heirs to your team of advisors, your children and grandchildren, as appropriate, can become familiar with the fiduciary care and guidance you have received over the years, leading to a less stressful transfer of wealth in the future, Greenstein explained. We are here to help them, as well. It is often critical for parents to have custom designed investment management for the next generation taking into account potential life changes, individual family circumstances, special needs, business succession, unique assets and strategic philanthropy. Cook and Greenstein coordinate family meetings for their clients now with the goal of heirs experiencing the best possible outcomes in the future.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 29, 201840 One never knows whether something written in social media was fabricated or is actually attributed to the correct party. Nevertheless, I came across this post in Facebook about the loss of loved ones that I thought was both insightful and poignant: Alright, here goes. Im old. What that means is that Ive survived (so far) and a lot of people Ive known and loved did not. Ive lost friends, best friends, acquaintances, co-workers, grandparents, mom, relatives, teachers, mentors, students, neighbors, and a host of other folks. I have no children, and I cant imagine the pain it must be to lose a child. But heres my two cents. I wish I could say you get used to people dying. I never did. I dont want to. It tears a hole through me whenever somebody I love dies, no matter the circumstances. But I dont want it to not matter. I dont want it to be something that just passes. My scars are a testament to the love and the relationship that I had for and with that person. And if the scar is deep, so was the love. So be it. Scars are a testament to life. Scars are a testament that I can love deeply and live deeply and be cut, or even gouged, and that I can heal and continue to live and continue to love. And the scar tissue is stronger than the original flesh ever was. Scars are a testament to life. Scars are only ugly to people who cant see. As for grief, youll find it comes in waves. When the ship is first wrecked, youre drowning, with wreckage all around you. Everything floating around you reminds you of the beauty and the magnificence of the ship that was and is no more. And all you can do is float. You find some piece of the wreckage and you hang on for a while. Maybe its some physical thing. Maybe its a happy memory or a photograph. Maybe its a person who is also floating. For a while, all you can do is float. Stay alive. In the beginning, the waves are 100 feet tall and crash over you without mercy. They come 10 seconds apart and dont even give you time to catch your breath. All you can do is hang on and float. After a while, maybe weeks, maybe months, youll find the waves are still 100 feet tall, but they come further apart. When they come, they still crash all over you and wipe you out. But in between, you can breathe, you can function. You never know whats going to trigger the grief. It might be a song, a picture, a street intersection, the smell of a cup of coffee. It can be just about anything and the wave comes crashing. But in between waves, there is life. Somewhere down the line, and its different for everybody, you find that the waves are only 80 feet tall. Or 50 feet tall. And while they still come, they come further apart. You can see them coming. An anniversary, a birthday, or Christmas, or landing at OHare. You can see it coming, for the most part, and prepare yourself. And when it washes over you, you know that somehow you will, again, come out the other side. Soaking wet, sputtering, still hanging on to some tiny piece of the wreckage, but youll come out. Take it from an old guy. The waves never stop coming, and somehow you dont really want them to. But you learn that youll survive them. And other waves will come. And youll survive them too. If youre lucky, youll have lots of scars from lots of loves. And lots of shipwrecks. Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at www.sbshlaw.com. Will PowerThe Pain Of Lossby Craig R.

Exp. 7/5/1815% OFF BEAT THE HEAT WITH SUMMER SAVINGS UP TO 50% OFFThe Finest in Outdoor Furnishings Senator Gains Superhero Child Protector AwardIn recognition of her vision, commitment and passionate leadership in the Senate of the Florida Child Marriage Act, The Childrens Campaign recently presented a Superhero Protector of Children Award to Florida Sen. Lizbeth Benacquisto. The Superhero awards are reserved for people who envision and/or lead transformational change for children. Sen. Benacquisto shared that her interest in the issue was sparked by a news story about coerced child marriage Florida victim Sherry Johnson as well as a troubling case involving a teenaged constituent in her district. I was honored to be joined by Leader Wilton Simpson and Rep. Jeanette Nunez as we worked to protect our children from the horrible abuses that were happening across the state, she said. We took strong action to protect Floridas children from forced marriages. Childrens Campaign president Roy Miller and representatives of the Voices for Florida Open Doors Outreach Network were present for the awards presentation in Benacquistos district office. The common denominator for receiving a Superhero award is the large-scale transformative change that can be achieved, explained Miller. It goes beyond good works; a good bill; good deeds. It means the lives of children are fundamentally and historically changed for the better. The award is not reserved for public officials. Most recipients have been private citizens or advocates who have envisioned innovations such as childrens health insurance, civil citations, new strategies to intervene in child trafficking, and more. Floridas Child Marriage Act, which bans marriage for anyone under 17 and prevents 17-year olds from marrying a spouse more than two years older, among other protections, will take effect on July 1, 2018. Prior to this legislation, Florida had no true protections restricting the marriage of minors.

From page 28School Smartreaders to rapidly decode text while maintaining high comprehension. There are some very simple and effective strategies to help students increase their reading fluency. In fact, practice with reading fluency also helps increase the readers accuracy and reading comprehension according to the National Reading Panel (2000). Here are some practice strategies. Increasing reading fluency requires very little except a quiet location, a good book, the reader and the parent or other proficient adult reader. 1. Sit with your child in a quiet location without too many distractions. Position the book selected for the reading session so that both you and the student can easily follow the text. (Or get two copies of the book so that you each have your own copy). 2. Ask your child to begin reading out loud, encouraging her or him to do your best reading. 3. Follow along silently in the text as your child reads. 4. If your child mispronounces a word or hesitates for longer than 5 seconds, tell him the word. Have her or him repeat the word correctly and then ask her or him to continue reading aloud through the passage. 5. Occasionally, praise your child in specific terms for good reading (e.g., You are reading with such good expression!). Practice this technique with your son 3 to 4 times a week for about 10 to 15 minutes per reading session, You, and your son, will see results quickly and as a side benefit you and your son will have built a wonderful reading bond between ach other.

Former Miracle Manager Having Great Success With A New Team And A New Organizationby Ed FrankRemember Doug Mientkiewicz, the former highly successful manager of the Fort Myers Miracle baseball team who was uncerimoniously fired by the Minnesota Twins last fall? Mientkiewicz, one of only five American ballplayers to win an Olympic gold medal and a World Series championship (Boston), managed the Miracle to their only Florida State League Championship in 2014 and Double A Chattanooga to a league title in 2015. In 2014, he was a finalist to become manager of the Twins, a job that eventually went to Paul Molitor. For reasons never fully explained, Mientkiewicz was dumped by the Twins organization last fall. But it didnt take long for the fiery and talented manager to be hired by another organization an interesting one at that. Shortly after former Twins manager Ron Gardenhire was named manager of the Detroit Tigers, Mientkiewicz was hired as manager of the Tigers Triple A Toledo Mud Hens of the International League. So the two are joined together again in the same baseball organization. And Mientkiewicz has his Mud Hens in first place in the West Division of the International League. Its obvious that one day soon, the former Miracle Manager will be managing in the big leagues. Season Nearing Half-Way Point; Update On The Red Sox And Twins As the Major League baseball season approaches halfway, we should review just where the Red Sox and Twins, the two teams that train here, stand. Its no surprise that the Red Sox and New York are locked in a tight race in the American League Eastern Division, with Boston trailing the Yankees by a mere halfgame at the weeks end. Bostons offensive power was fortified with the pre-season acquisition of slugger JD Martinez, who had belted 23 home runs at weeks end and was hitting well above .300. Hes just what the Red Sox needed with the retirement of David Ortiz at the end of the 2016 season. However, many feel the team is in need of bullpen help with the season-ending injury to Carson Smith and the uncertainty of Tyler Thornburg, who is in rehab from thoracic outlet syndrome. In his first two years with Boston, Dave Dombrowski, president of baseball operations, bolstered his bullpen with late-season acquisitions of Brad Ziegler and Addison Reed. So dont be surprised if the smart Dombrowski does the same this year. Anyway you look at it, the Red Sox and Yankees are more than likely to battle each other to the very end of the season with one winning the division title and the other grabbing the wild card slot. As for the Twins, its a different story and not a happy one. After a historic 2017 season in which they became the first team to advance to the playoffs after losing more than 100 games the season before, there was much anticipation that 2018 would be even better, particularly when they improved their roster with several preseason moves. However, as the week began, the Twins were 33-40, eight games behind first-place Cleveland. While theres plenty of time remaining to reverse course, there are discouraging signs on several fronts. Two of their prized young players, Byron Buxton and Miquel Sano remain big question marks. The often-injured Buxton is expected to continue a long rehab assignment at Triple A Rochester, and Sano is back here with the Miracle in the hopes of correcting his batting woes. The fact is, Sano has shown he cannot hit big league sliders. Perhaps his stint here will correct the problem. Adding to the problem mix is the suspension to shortstop Jorge Polanco who is serving an 80-game suspension for testing positing on performance enhancing drugs. The seasons second half must be far improved for the Twins if postseason play is a possibility. SUN ISLAND SUN JUNE 29, 201844 SPORTS QUIZ 1.

Does performing sports, dancing, or doing household chores increase your problem? Do quick movements of your head or looking up increase your symptoms? Do you have trouble getting up from a chair without using your arms? Can you stand on one leg without losing your balance? Does your problem restrict your participation in social or recreational activities? Are you afraid of falling? If you have answered yes to any of these questions (or have a friend or family member who does) then attend the Balance and Dizziness Workshop at FYZICAL Therapy and Balance Centers on Tuesday, July 10 from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. It may be a life-changing event for you. Loss of balance, falling or dizziness can drastically decrease your quality of life. It can make you fearful and cause you to limit your activities. Falling can cause other injuries including fractures and concussions. Loss of balance can make you dependent on others. It can force you to limit travel and social activities.It can take away your focus from spending time playing with and enjoying children and grandchildren. Less activity and exercise can lead to depression, increased stress and a sedentary lifestyle. Less activity often leads to other larger medical problems and life problems. If you are confused and unsure of what to do or the cause of your problem and are looking for answers, here is some points that you will learn at the workshop: the top common types of dizziness; the three key body systems that are involved in balance; how balance problems impact how we walk and move; how to determine the cause of your problem and what can be done to improve your condition; what is involved in successful treatment and how to gain relief naturally with use of proper exercises and physical therapy. To register for the Balance and Dizziness Workshop, call the FYZICAL Therapy and Balance Centers office at 395-1097. When you register you will be sent a Balance and Dizziness worksheet which you will bring with you to the event. There are only 20 seats available for this event, so register quickly. You are encouraged to bring a friend or family member. All attendees will have the opportunity to have a balance screening and consultation with a certified balance specialist physical therapist. FYZICAL Therapy and Balance Centers is located at 4301 Sanibel-Captiva Road on Sanibel.
45 ISLAND SUN JUNE 29, 2018 From page 1Seashell Dayadded to the throng. Slowly, the human mass began to take the shape of a giant junonia. The reason were doing this today is to show the whole world what a great community we live in, Tamara Pigott, executive director of the VCB, told the crowd who began arriving at the event shortly after 6:30 a.m. And when you post on social media, you can say you live in the most beautiful place in the world! Finally, after more than an hour of funneling participants into an area cordoned off in the designated shape of a junonia, the group was required to stand in place for five minutes while cameras attached to drones hovering high above the crowd took pictures to document the attempt. It took about a half hour to confirm the results. After reviewing all of the evidence and verifying the measurements and the head count, I am ready to announce the official results, Christina Conlon, official adjudicator for the Guinness Book of World Records told the crowd around 11:30 a.m. With a confirmed total today of 1,093 participants, we have set the world record! According to VCB officials, the youngest registered participant was 6-week-old Quin Simpson of Lehigh Acres. Attendees came from as far away as Germany and Switzerland. All participants received a commemorative 2018 National Seashell Day T-shirt, hat and seashell necklace for taking part in the record attempt. Participants were also encouraged to bring a canned food or nonperishable item to benefit the United Ways support of area food banks. National Seashell Day was sponsored by The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel, The Outrigger Beach Resort, Fort Myers Beach Chamber of Commerce, LeeTran and AIM Engineering & Surveying, Inc. Participating local attractions, organizations and businesses included the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum, the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW), Costco, Kona Ice, Key West Express, The Bagel Factory, DirecTV, Turtle Time, Inc., United Way and Conchalele Bob MacPhail. Holly Smith, Sanibel City Councilwoman and local business owner, was among the crowd participating in the world record attempt. I came certainly to support the VCB, but also to have fun and be a part of the record, said Smith. I thought it was great, seeing so many people having fun. There were just so many smiling faces. Last weeks event wasnt the first time that locals attempted to shatter a shell-related world record. Back in 2012, as part of the Sanibel Shell Festivals 75th annual Shellabration, more than 800 people gathered at Bowmans Beach on Sanibel while attempting to shatter the existing record mark in the Largest Treasure Hunt Game category. For more than the required 30 seconds, the mass of shell seekers bent over on the sand, performing the Sanibel Stoop under the watchful eye of Guinness Book of World Records representatives and volunteer witnesses to the display. Sanibels record for Largest Treasure Hunt Game stood for several years until a gathering in Greece, held in February 2017, established the new mark with 1,384 participants.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 29, 201846 2 Years Experience Doctor and DieticianTreatment For Back Painby Ross Hauser, MD and Marion Hauser, MS, RDAlmost everyone has dealt with back pain at some point in their life. Back pain is often due to injury, which may occur from repeated heavy lifting or a sudden awkward movement that strains back muscles and spinal ligaments. At times, just the muscle is tweaked, and a few days later, the muscle is healed and youre back to normal. But when pain becomes chronic, low back pain can be disabling, interfering with life as you know it. There are numerous treatments aimed at providing relief for nagging back pain. Cortisone and steroid injections are common, but unfortunately, these injections provide only temporary relief and are harmful to the soft tissue over the long-term. Pain medications are also common, and although they provide pain relief, they do not repair the underlying issue and can lead to an endless and possibly dangerous dependency cycle. The underlying, and frequently missed, problem is often ligament damage causing joint instability. Ligaments aid in the stability of the back, so when they are injured, instability results. When standing, bending and turning, the ligaments in the back work to keep motion in check, allowing the vertebrae to move, but not letting them move too much. Injured ligaments become weak and stretched out, like an overstretched rubber band, void of elasticity and unable to efficiently do their job. Ligaments are also full of nerves, so when you go about your daily activities and bend or twist or even sit too long, those nerves get tweaked. The treatment used to repair ligaments in the lower back is known as prolotherapy. It is a regenerative method for long-term stability, unlike cortisone, which is temporary and degenerative over the long term. Popular prolotherapy solutions can include a persons own healing cells, such as platelet rich plasma (PRP) or stem cells. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

I am curious as to what your answers would be as I am quite sure that response to this question will vary depending on your age, your responsibilities in life, your location in the world and where your heart is. My personal belief about being free is to be happy. That seems way too easy, but is it? Happiness and freedom are a choice that you have to make for yourself, and then you have to make it happen. There will be days where this is easier said than done, no doubt, but if you do everything in your power to free yourself from just a few of my suggestions below, you will find more happiness, and the result will be a step closer to your most beautifulife! Here are a few of my suggestions for freedom in the following areas of your life: Emotional Free yourself from worry and self-condemnation. Keep joy in your life by smiling more often and telling yourself how awesome you are. Remember, you are smart and can make significant decisions that will also make great things happen. Physical Explore ways to stay healthy and fit. It is tough to be free when illness or physical ailments are encompassing your life. Make wellness and physical activity a high priority. Spiritual Have peace and stay calm even in the midst of chaos. Take time to pray or meditate daily to keep order in your life and to continue to enjoy your freedoms. Environmental A big part of being free is loving where you live and what you do each day. There are little things that you can do to make your environment more comfortable, clean and inspiring. Your work environment should be a place that you are excited to be at since this is a big part of your day. Dont rely on anyone but yourself to make the changes necessary to create a home and work environment that inspires you every day. Social Free yourself to give more love to others, open your heart to forgive so you can move ahead without restraint. Surround yourself with positive and inspirational people so that you can continue to grow and flourish. Financial Being financially free is different for everyone. For some, it means having enough money to pay the bills each month without worry. To others, it is to have the ability to travel and spend on outside interests without sacrificing other things. Regardless of what financial freedom means to you, there are ways to attain it if you want it. I believe that you should look for ways to create an income stream outside of your primary job. There are companies like my own that provide a method for individuals to make money by just sharing our products and inspiration with their social network of people. These other opportunities are also a fantastic way to prosper while continuing to do what you love. My affirmation for you this week is: I will find new ways to be free in all aspects of my life and know that ultimately doing what makes me happy and being where I want to be is my freedom of choice.

Acknowledging the romantic vision of the road as epitomized by the Beats, Ruscha invented the artists book in the 1960s with his inexpensively printed and selfpublished deadpan photographic musings on the evolving urban environment of Los Angeles. His aptly-titled Twenty-six Gasoline Stations, Every Building on the Sunset Strip and Royal Road Test, which documents the prankish destruction of a vintage typewriter as tossed at 90 mph along US Highway 91 from a Buick LeSabre, perfectly compliment the car parts, jazz instruments and sandwich stacks that Ruscha found, appropriated or photographed to illustrate his 2009 limited edition update of Kerouacs On the Road. Amram is an American treasure who started his musical career in the early 1950s playing in the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, DC, as well as in the legendary jazz bands of Charles Mingus, Dizzy Gillespie and Lionel Hampton. In 1957, he created and performed in the first ever Jazz/Poetry readings in New York City with novelist Jack Kerouac, a close friend with whom Amram collaborated artistically for over 12 years. From 1964-66, Amram was the composer and music director for the Lincoln Center Theatre (until Leonard Bernstein appointed him as the first Composer in Residence at the New York Philharmonic). Regularly crisscrossing the United States and Canada, Amram has traveled the world extensively, working as a musician, conductor and multi-lingual storyteller in over 35 countries including Cuba, Kenya, Egypt, Pakistan, Israel, Latvia and China. The subject of the feature-length documentary film David Amram: The First Eighty Years and author of three highly acclaimed memoirs, Vibrations Nine Lives of a Musical Cat and Offbeat: Collaborating With Kerouac As a composer, Amram has collaborated with Elia Kazan, Eugene Ormandy, Arthur Miller and Langston Hughes, and as a musician with Thelonious Monk, Odetta, Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Betty Carter, Arlo Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Tito Puente, Hunter S. Thompson and Johnny Depp.
SUN deaRPharmacistSix Ways To Relieve Itchy Red Eyesby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Readers:My eyes are driving me crazy, and I thought Id share what I know with you in case you are feeling the same way right about now. For me, its a triple hit from the smoke generated by fires nearby in Colorado, the ragweed pollen and some drywall dust kicked up when I demod a fireplace in my new home. Heres a sample of what Ive been doing to tame the red so that people stop asking if I was up all night drinking, lol, which I was not I assure you! I cant list everything here due to space considerations, so if youd like the complete list of my home remedies, sign up for my newsletter at www.suzycohen. com and Ill email it to you on Tuesday. 1. Dry up: Take an oral antihistamine such as Loratadine (Claritin). I am taking about a half tablet daily with a natural supplement that Ill tell you about in my longer article on my website. Now that youve got your antihistamine on board, proceed to step 2. 2. Wash your eyes: Irrigate your eye with saline and a sterile eye cup. Your local pharmacy, department store or online e-tailer has Bausch & Lombs brand of eye wash or irrigating eye wash or a similar brand of saline that comes with an eye cup. You do not want contact lens cleaner, you want to basically rinse your eye out. Its similar to opening your eye underwater in a pool, you just have to do it. 3. Apply a cold compress: Take a clean washcloth, dip it in ice water and wring out, then apply. I like to take them and fold the washcloth in half, then roll it up tightly. The ends of the washcloth will now fit into your eye socket, and it is such sweet relief! Be intelligent and apply sparingly, you just want to cool your eye for a few seconds, so dont hurt yourself. 4. Get the red out: You can choose what you like, or can afford. I use various ones including Zaditor because this lasts 12 hours, and contains a histamine blocker only (Ketotifen), whereas most eye drops contain an antihistamine as well as a vasoconstrictor. If youre looking for that type of combination, try Opcon or Visine, or their store-brand generic equivalents which will save you money. 5. Lie down and breathe: Buy an eye pillow, preferably unscented and put it in the freezer for 15 minutes. You can always store yours in there, thats what I do. Put it on your eyes and just breathe. Mmm. 6. Look like a diva: Cucumber slices on the eyelids you see this all the time in spa pictures and the reason is that cucumbers reduce eye inflammation and theyll temporarily hide the fact that you pulled an all-nighter last night, played with your neighbors cat or went horseback riding through ragweed. You can apply them topically, or better yet, juice cucumbers along with some carrots and celery and drink it. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: Do you have any suggestions how to not worry so much about aging?A: Wouldnt it be nice if aging could just feel natural and we didnt see it as a struggle or negative? Many people dread their birthday instead of seeing it as a celebration of life and feelings of a greater connection with themselves. Of course, aging is a part of life and instead of feeling fearful about the aging process, what would it be like to surrender to a feeling of comfort in handling the changes in life that are inevitable? What would it be like to embrace each birthday and feeling as though you have acquired more wisdom and love of self and others? I think part of the issue is that society has an aging phobia. Its easy to buy into this especially if you hear others negativity about their own aging and discussing what they cant do anymore. Truthfully, worrying about aging only makes you more prone to age faster. If you see yourself as old, you will be. Research has linked negative perceptions of aging to people with a life span that is seven years shorter. Perhaps we can begin to look at aging as a beautiful radiance we have had since we were born and that, through the years, we are becoming more radiant through our beliefs that aging can be a beautiful thing. The reality is that aging is determined by numerous variables including genetics, lifestyle, attitude and karma. However, your spirit within you can choose how you accept your aging process, and you can defy the western stereotypes and not buy into them. The great poet Rumi wrote that the stream you stepped into yesterday is not the same stream you stepped into today. It is the same place but the water that rushes by your feet is new. You may pass one age, but your states of mind may be the same. You can surrender to many of the misconceptions of aging and contain within you all the wisdom of every year you have experienced. I like to think of the aging process as a contribution to many chapters of my beautiful book of life each year. No regrets, only lessons and learning. There is nothing to worry about when it comes to aging, especially when we learn to surrender old beliefs and embrace the optimism of aging.

CLASSIFIED CLASSIFIED www.islandsunnews.com PLACE CLASSIFIED ISLAND SUN JUNE 29, 201854 Landing a big fish from the beach can be hard on the fish. Dragging a fish up onto the sand if youre going to release it is not an option as it usually damages or kills the fish. Hold the fish in the water while you unhook it if youre going to release it. The less you can touch a fish before release the better for the fish. If you want a picture with the fish, support it as you lift it out of the water and do it quickly. Before releasing, revive the fish while holding it in the water; moving it slowly back and forth so water goes over its gills. The fish will let you know when its ready to swim off. Florida just recently changed the regulations on fishing from shore. Florida residents as well as out of state visitors need a fishing license to fish from shore.

Top 10 Real Estate SalesCourtesy of Royal Shell Real Estate 55 ISLAND SUN JUNE 29, 2018 My Stars FOR WEEK OF JULY 2, 2018Aries (March 21 to April 19) Before you adventurous Arians charge right into those new projects, take a little time to learn where youll be going so you can avoid getting lost before you get there. Taurus (April 20 to May 20) Your time is devoted to career demands through much of the week. But Venus, who rules your sign, might be planning how (and with whom) youll spend your weekend. Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Dont be put off by the surprising turn in the way your project is developing. Youve invested enough time in it to know how to make all the necessary adjustments. Cancer (June 21 to July 22) The work week goes smoothly for the most part. But a weekend visit to a place in your past could hold surprises for your future, especially where romance is involved. Leo (July 23 to August 22) A sudden attack of shyness for the usually loquacious Lion could be a sign that deep down youre not sure enough about what (or whom) you had planned to talk up in public. Virgo (August 23 to September 22) Deal with that job-related problem on-site -that is, at the workplace. Avoid taking it home, where it can spoil those important personal plans youve made. Libra (September 23 to October 22) Its a good time to let those favorable comments about your business dealings be known to those in a position to be helpful. Dont hide your light; let it shine. Scorpio (October 23 to November 21) Avoid added pressure to finish a project on deadline by steering clear of distractions. To put it somewhat poetically: Time for fun -when your tasks are done. Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21) You might be uneasy about an offer from a longtime colleague. But before you reject it, study it. You might be surprised at what it actually contains. Capricorn (December 22 to January 19) Deal firmly with a difficult family matter. Its your strength they need right now. You can show your emotions when the situation begins to ease up. Aquarius (January 20 to February 18) A recent dispute with some co-workers might not have been completely resolved. But other colleagues will be only too happy to offer support of your actions. Pisces (February 19 to March 20) Let go of that Piscean pride long enough to allow someone to help you with a surprising development. That could make it easier for you to adjust to the change. Born This Week: Your willingness to open up to possibilities is why people like you are often among our most popular political leaders. It was noted 20th-century American novelist, short story writer and journalist Ernest Hemingway who made the following sage observation: When you stop doing things for fun you might as well be dead. You might be surprised to learn that the largest irrigated crop in the United States isnt soybeans, wheat or even corn; its grass mostly in lawns, parks and golf courses. The next time you see a shampoo commercial and note how creamy and frothy the lather seems to be, keep this in mind: The model in the advertisement probably has either laundry detergent or frothed egg whites on her hair. You may be among those people who think good deeds and selfless acts are on the decline. If so, consider this story: In 2010, an employee at a recycling company came across 23 U.S. savings bonds while sorting through a bin of discarded papers. Instead of trying to cash the $22,000 worth of bonds himself, Mike Rodgers decided to track down the owner. It turned out that the woman who had bought the bonds, Martha Dobbins, had been dead for almost two decades. Rodgers didnt give up, though; he began a search for Robert Roberts, who was also named on the bonds. Though the name is common and Rodgers hit many dead ends, he eventually located the correct Robert Roberts, the son of Martha Dobbins. Roberts hadnt even been aware of the bonds existence. Rodgers, his good deed finally being done, refused a reward. Ever wonder what the opposite of reverse is? Its obverse the front or principal part of an object. On a coin, for instance, the obverse is heads and the reverse is tails. The secret of life is to appreciate the pleasure of being terribly, terribly deceived.
