A second year volunteer with the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) Sea Turtle Program and permittee-in-training, Plein had been looking forward to this moment for the past two months. Its exciting that this nest even hatched, she said as she watched SCCF staff member and sea turtle program participant since 1984 Kristie Anders and first-year volunteer Dr. Bob Fisher conduct the inventory of Captivas Nest #1. After seeing this nest get washed over during (Tropical Storm) Alberto, we didnt know if it was gonna hatch. Earlier this season, on the morning of April 26, Plein and SCCF Sea Turtle Program Coordinator Kelly Sloan discovered an adult female loggerhead sea turtle as she was finishing the process of laying her eggs on the beach. After the sea turtle completed the nesting process, both watched her disappear into the gulf waters before they staked off the newlylaid nest, the first of the 2018 season. It was a unique experience for Plein, who had pledged to adopt the first nest she helped find in honor of her grandmother, Joyce Wolf, who passed awaycontinued on page 20 From left, SCCF Sea Turtle Program staff member Kristie Anders and volunteers Dr. Bob Fisher and Stefanie Plein conducting an inventory of Captivas first loggerhead sea turtle nest of the 2018 season last week photos by Jeff Lysiak The newborn hatchling making its way across the sandFirst Captiva Loggerhead Sea Turtle Nest Hatches Walter The Loggerhead Releasedby Jeff LysiakThree weeks after an adult male loggerhead sea turtle was brought to the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) for treatment after being rescued offshore, where boaters reported it appeared to be struggling to swim, the loggerhead was released back into the wild with great fanfare from a large group of onlookers. On the afternoon of June 28, the sea turtle nicknamed Walter, after the founder of CROW, Shirley J. Walter was returned to the Gulf of Mexico following 24 days of treatment for brevetoxicosis, also known as red tide poisoning. Since this past October, we have admitted 274 patients for suspected brevetoxicosis; 229 of those have been admitted since January 1 of this year, said Dr. Robin Bast, CROW veterinary intern. Typically, brevetoxicosis cases make up approximately 10 percent of our caseload annually. In addition, the loggerhead was tagged with a passive integrated transponder (PIT) tag and fitted with a satellite tag. Walter was selected to be a part of the Sea Turtle Conservancys online sea turtle tracking educational program. The tag will transmit the sea turtles location via satellite when he comes to the surface to breathe. Walter is the seventh adult male loggerhead sea turtle to be tagged by Mote Marine Laboratory as part of a study of the turtles migratory behavior after release from rehabilitation and recovery. To track Walters location, visit www. A group of more than 60 onlookers welcomed CROW and Mote Marine Lab staff carrying the sling containing the 230-pound sea turtle last Thursday on the beach located behind West Wind Inn on Sanibel. Among the crowd were SCCF Sea Turtle Program participants who had helped rescue the loggerhead three weeks earlier. Im glad he made it, said SCCFs Audrey Albrecht who, along with Sea Turtle Program Coordinator Kelly Sloan and participants Jack Brzoza, Andrew Glinsky and Katie Goulder, helped rescue Walter in early June.

Placed on the sand about 10 feet from the waters edge, Walter slowly and methodically used his flippers to crawl into the gulf to the great delight of the spectators. According to rehabilitation staff, while the average success rate for marine life treated for brevetoxicosis is between 25 and 33 percent, the wildlife clinic claims an 88 percent rate of success for sea turtles. This has been a very busy red tide season and its extending longer into the year than what we usually see, said Dr. Heather Barron, CROW hospital director, who suggested that Walters prognosis is positive. Hes a very strong, healthy sea turtle. All of his bloodwork is now within the normal limits, so we felt very confident that he would be able to go out and thrive in this environment.

5 ISLAND SUN JULY 6, 2018 Sanibel Sea School is doing its part to help create and celebrate Wahine Toa, a Polynesian term which loosely translated means Warrior Women. Held from June 18 to 22, the Wahine Toa Camp open to young women ages 13 to 18 offered instruction on how to handle a paddleboard, shared practical skills like how to change a tire or jumpstart a car, and offered valuable survival skills including basic first aid and how to build a campfire. Led by Adventure Education Coordinator Charlotte Cadow and Conservation Initiative Coordinator and Marine Science Instructor Sam Lucas, the five-day camp was filled with plenty of outdoor, on-the-water activities. We went paddling every day, said Lucas, who noted that campers traveled by kayak from a variety of island launch locations, from Causeway Island A and Bowmans Beach to destinations like Picnic Island and Doc Fords restaurant on Fort Myers Beach. On Monday, campers learned basic paddling instruction before they headed out to some of Sanibels canals on the east end of the island. That afternoon, they earned their CPR and first aid certifications with the help of Sanibel Fire & Rescue District personnel. The following day, they paddled from the causeway to Fishermans Key. The girls saw a manatee, Lucas said. Later, they learned basic automotive repair. Following a paddle and picnic on Bowmans Beach, Wednesdays activities included preparing for their overnight trip to Picnic Island in San Carlos Bay, prepping and dehydrating for the excursion, and learning how to tie a variety of knots. They also learned to make sourdough bagels. On Thursday, the group received instruction on how to use a compass along with basic navigation skills. After a picnic lunch on a sandflat, campers paddled over to Picnic Island. They set up their hammocks for sleeping, continued on page 36 Participants and counselors from this summers Wahine Toa Camp, conducted by Sanibel Sea School, included, from left, Sydney Guse, Miranda Guse, Caroline Holtz, Ella Laboda, Alivia Mehalik, Char Cadow and Sam Lucas photos courtesy Sanibel Sea School Wahine Toa Camp Empowers Young Women Two Wahine Toa Camp participants paddleboarding

During her 45-minute presentation, Anders shared some background information on several pivotal players and the important dates that helped shape the future of Sanibel. This is my favorite story to tell, Anders told the audience. Chronicling over a century of preserving paradise, the presentation A History of Island Conservation: The City That Almost Wasnt celebrated the forward thinking of many islanders and visitors, including Theodore Roosevelt and Jay Norwood Ding Darling, the establishment of the refuge and the founding of SCCF, leading up to the incorporation and ensuing history of the City of Sanibel. Whats the difference between Sanibel and other cities in Southwest Florida? The skyline, said Anders. You wont see many cities along the coast that arent dotted with highrises. Sharing several historical aerial images taken in the mid-1940s, Anders noted that until the 1950s, Sanibel was mostly a sparsely vegetated island of open grasslands. However, in the years leading up to World War II, the island was being sold to property investors. One person who came to Sanibel beginning in the 1930s was Darling, whose doctors told him that in order to treat his chronic bronchitis, he should visit a warmer climate during the harsh winters he experienced in Iowa. He and his wife, Penny, who frequently stayed at Tween Waters Inn on Captiva, finally built a permanent home here in 1942. The nationally known and respected political cartoonist, whose affinity for environmental causes often influenced his work, was one of the leading local voices when it came to helping protect wildlife and preserve land. Darling sent a letter to the federal government requesting that they stop the sale of 2,000 acres of land on Sanibel. Using money from the sale of Federal Duck Stamps, the Sanibel National Wildlife Refuge became established in 1945. It was later rededicated in the name of Darling following his death in 1962. Mosquitoes were intolerable pests in those days. With mudflats being a key breeding ground for the insect larvae, a five-mile dam was built to combat the infestation. That structure eventually became Wildlife Drive, the 4.5-mile roadway through the center of the refuge. As air conditioning and fresh water became readily available and affordable, the islands population began to grow. But plans to bring some 35,000 residential units to Sanibel didnt sit well with most islanders already living here. In the late 1960s, following the opening of the Sanibel Causeway, local groups of concerned residents began to advocate for preserving environmentally sensitive land. One of those groups became SCCF on October 31, 1967. The pressure to develop on Sanibel was enormous, said Anders, who added that in 1974, a whopping 85 percent of island residents turned out to cast their vote on the subject of declaring independence from Lee County. More than 75 percent of the population voted in favor of establishing the City of Sanibel, thus being able to create their own laws while helping to preserve large undeveloped areas of the island for future generations to enjoy. But they paid the price for it, she noted. It was a pretty brave act. The home of Porter Goss and his family had to be protected by law enforcement officers from opponents of the citys vote to become independent. Muriel (Goss) and her children would recognize the sheriffs officers who frequently visited the house to serve subpoenas, said Anders. They knew them by name and would invite them in for coffee. But perhaps the greatest evidence of why Sanibel remains a sanctuary island today can be seen in the vision statement that appears on the walls of Sanibel City Hall: Sanibel is and shall remain a small town community whose members choose to live in harmony with one another and with nature; creating a human settlement distinguished by its diversity, beauty, uniqueness, character and stewardship, the statement reads, in part. The City of Sanibel cherishes its cultural, social ecological and economic diversity, and will endeavor to maintain it. For more information on upcoming events and programs, visit or call 472-2329.

Celebrating 30 years of ministry, Bigstuf provides church youth groups with an experience that deepens their teens relationships with Christ and connects them with new and old friends. Each session opened with praise and worship time. More than 1,500 teens from Generation Z came together singing and praising God. They beamed with excitement and filled the room with explosive energy for one common goal: to be more Christ-like. The students were reminded, We raise our hands not because we are the fans, but because we realize that God is the fan of us. Guest speakers Joseph Sojourner (Sojo) and Stuart Hall, renowned for their work with teens and dedicated to equipping todays youth for the future, captivated the audience by speaking biblical truths and emphasizing this years theme, which is Original. The teens were stretched and reminded To be an original, give God your ordinary and hell make it extraordinary. The students participated in seven sessions, interspersed with beach fun, volleyball, basketball, beach worship, small group time and an s-themed worship party. Each teen was challenged to Do Big Stuff and charged to go above and beyond to serve their community and families. H2O Student Ministries is a youth ministry program for sixth through 12th grade young men and women. The group meets on Wednesday evenings (currently on summer break) from 5 to 7 p.m. for middle school and from 6 to 8 p.m. for high school students.

Plant SmartMuscadineby Gerri ReavesMuscadine (Vitis rotundifolia) is a native woody vine that grows throughout Florida as well as the southeastern U.S. In the wild, its found in hammocks, woods and scrub, and also flourishes weed-like in undeveloped lots and along roadsides. It spreads by using coiled tendrils and is capable of scrambling over other plants and into the treetops and growing as long as 90 feet. If you want a fast-growing wildlifefriendly vine to cover a trellis or fence, this might be a good choice. While this member of the grape family often volunteers its seeds are spread by wildlife it is also cultivated to make grape jelly, juice and wine. Historically speaking, it was the first grape species to be cultivated in North America. Today, many cultivars exist. Its natural pest resistance is an advantage for commercial growers as well as home gardeners, and it can often be grown without pesticides. Inconspicuous yellow-green, five-petaled flowers appear in spring, followed by fruit clusters -not bunches -of up to 30 grapes in fall. Each grape is one-half to an inch across and ranges in color from pinkish bronze to deep purple-black. The skin is tough, the interior flesh translucent, juicy and seeded. The alternative triangular, or heart-shaped, leaves have toothed edges and are deciduous, so the vine is bare part of the year but re-leafs quickly. It will tolerate some shade but does best in full sun. Propagate it with seeds or cuttings.

With the help of 1,093 registered participants on Fort Myers Beach, the Lee County Visitor and Convention Bureau broke the Guinness World Record of the Largest Human Image of a Seashell. The record-breaking gathering took place on National Seashell Day, June 21. Shell ambassadors from the BaileyMatthews National Shell Museum were on foot during the event, educating participants about shells and the mollusks that create them. The Shell Ambassador program is comprised of volunteers who wear specially-designed Ask Me T-shirts while they are on the beach to indicate that they are certified to answer questions and identify shells. The National Seashell Day event truly demonstrated how shelling unites our community and inspires us all to get outside, said Leigh Gay, museum outreach coordinator. I spoke to so many kids that day who were passionate about shelling. Several adults were interested in becoming a certified National Shell Museum Shell Ambassador, and some even started memorizing shells at the table. Many of the families that came to our booth had never been to the museum before, and had no idea we offered daily summer programming for families.

13 ISLAND SUN JULY 6, 2018 Sea Trash Storm Strikes Shorelinesubmitted by Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF)Instead of being greeted by seashells and turtle tracks along the shores, early morning beach walkers were struck by the sight of plastic bottles and styrofoam chucks littering the high tide line recently. It was an all hands on deck incident as SCCF (Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation) sea turtle and shorebird volunteers, staff, Adopt-A-Beach participants, residents and tourists alike launched an impromptu cleanup effort. In just eight miles of shoreline from Tarpon Bay Road to Blind Pass SCCF Sea Turtle and Shorebird program coordinators Kelly Sloan and Audrey Albrecht, sea turtle technician Jack Brzoza and intern Ana Defilipo had the bed of the beach patrol vehicle completely filled with sea trash that was largely composed of plastics. In addition to spending their time measuring and monitoring nesting activity, they spent additional manpower doing what amounted to a sea trash shuttle run: jumping off the vehicle to the beach, grabbing trash, tossing it into the back of the vehicle and repeating. Other groups of turtle patrol volunteers mirrored this messy cleanup exercise along the entire coastline of Sanibel and Captiva. At one point, the SCCF vehicle was so full of plastics, the group was concerned some might be blown back out before they reached Bowmans Beach where they photo documented their haul before dumping it into recycling bins. This is so sad to see but picking up plastic and sea trash is all part of what we do, said Sloan. Still stunned by the unusual onslaught of trash on this day, she and the other researchers wondered about the point source of this notable pollution event. A number of the bottle labels were written in foreign languages, showing just how far our trash can travel on ocean currents, added Albrecht. The plastics varied in age and original use. Some were coated in thick amounts of algae, some blackened with an oily diesel fuel-like slime, yet most were single-use water bottles. As the group continued their patrol, they came upon a Chateaux Sur Mer resident and Adopt-A-Beach participant who estimated picking up 50 plastic bottles and a dozen styrofoam chunks in a onemile stretch, the most she had ever seen in 15 years. Along Gulf Pines and Gulf Shores, other Adopt-A-Beach participants lived their pledge to be ambassadors to the shore by instinctively picking up plastics there too. The unusual amount of debris in a single day served to highlight the impact and importance of asking everyone who enjoys the beaches and environment to help protect it. As Ted Sieger, a world renowned resource economist stated, This isnt a problem where we dont know the solution. We know how to pick up garbage. Anyone can do it. National Geographics current cover story highlighted some compelling facts about plastic. While a plastic bag or bottle may have a work life of or utility for 15 minutes, scientific estimates for plastic decomposing range from an incredible 450 years to never. In addition, Science Daily recently reported, Researchers found a wide array of microplastics in fish stomachs, with a whopping 73 percent of the fish having ingested the pollutants. Being a barrier island with critical nesting habits makes Sanibel even more vulnerable to experiencing the detrimental environmental impact of plastics with even greater force. Research conducted by Florida Atlantic University has already documented that microplastics are found in the sand of gulf coast beaches, with the concentration higher in dunes where turtles nest. These plastics have the potential to change the nest incubation temperature, which determines the sex of the hatchlings. Research indicates that rising temperatures are already starting to create a worldwide female biased sex ratio that appears to be growing. For example, a study in Australias Northern Great Barrier Reef revealed that 99 percent of young green turtles are female and that male sea turtles at that location are disappearing. Closer to home, researchers from Florida Atlantic University have documented that 97 to 100 percent of the hatchlings sampled since 2002 have been female. With drastic environmental changes predicted to occur within this century, sea turtles are at risk of unsustainable sex ratios that could have a negative impact on their populations. Microplastics that absorb and retain heat in the sand could exacerbate this serious issue. While these small micro plastic pieces may not be as visually disturbing as larger pieces of trash, these tiny bits of plastic pose an immediate threat to the sea turtle population. In addition to possibly altering sand temperatures, microplastics are ingested by sea turtles of all life stages, causing them to starve because they feel full or creating impaction issues. This highlights the importance of asking everyone who enjoys the beaches to play a vital role in picking up plastic. Regardless of how small the pieces may seem, they have a very real and lasting detrimental impact on the environment and food chain. Were trying to get the word out that picking up all plastic makes a truly meaningful difference, said Sloan. We want to thank our Adopt-A-Beach ambassadors who are committed to being engaged with nature and who are keepers of our shoreline.

Great Flats Action All Week Long by Capt. Matt MitchellDespite red tide reports all over the news, the southern end of Pine Island Sound has not been affected. In fact, some of the open water flats fishing thats going on is amazing. Although the water is brown, it is still pretty clear. Once you get up past the middle sound, there are large patches of floating grass making it hard to fish. In the very northern end around Cabbage Key and Useppa Island, we are seeing floating dead fish. Small baits, either shiners or small pinfish fished under a popping cork, have brought some crazy nonstop action from St. James City all the way up to Flamingo Bay channel. Limits of trout along with lots of small sharks and Spanish mackerel have kept the rods bent basically until you run out of bait. This southeastern end of the sound for some reason has been the prettiest water around and is just filled with life. Soft plastic jigs in a shiner pattern have also been getting it done in these same areas. Soft plastics can either be fished under a popping cork like you would a like bait or fan cast and bounced along the bottom. The variety of fish in these threeto six-foot grass flats has been amazing. With water temperatures topping out shiners have all but disappeared for at least the next few months. Pinfish have become the go-to bait with smaller pinfish catching lots of keeper-sized trout. Another option with the hot water temperature is to use frozen jumbo shrimp to pitch against the mangroves for redfish. Floating a big piece of shrimp on a jighead close to the mangroves and letting the current move it down the bank has drawn the redfish in when nothing else will. Getting out early morning or late night is the only way to beat this summer heat. Although the afternoon bite has been OK, its been tough to dodge the afternoon thunderstorms. These fast-moving storms can be filled with lightening and should not be taken lightly especially when out on a boat. Even if it means wrapping the days trip up early, its always better to be safe than sorry. Low tides have been late night and are the perfect set-up to fish docks or the passes for some great snook action. Not only do you beat the heat, you will usually have the whole pass to yourself. Flies work great for this along with large live baits in the fast-moving current. The better snook bite in the passes has come during this outgoing tide. 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: Purple Gallinule by Bob PetcherThe purple gallinule ( Porphyrio martinicus) is a medium-sized water bird with long legs and toes. It is known to swim like a duck, but can also walk on top of marsh vegetation due to its lengthy toes. Purple gallinules are so named because they have dark purple heads, necks and undersides. The rest of their colorful bodies include a green back, light blue forehead, red-tipped bill and yellow legs. Gallinules are related to rails and coots. It differs from its cousin the common gallinule by its brilliant coloration. The common gallinule lacks that striking visual appearance in regards to color, and looks duller if both birds were side by side. Purple gallinules do have some quirks. As if walking on lily pads wasnt strange enough, these birds flick their tails nervously, nod their heads while swimming and regularly fly short distances with legs dangling to attract attention. While they are awkward fliers, purple gallinules do make trips to northern states and southern Canada as well as numerous flights to Europe and South Africa. At CROW, an adult purple gallinule was found with a droopy wing and unable to fly. The bird was transported to the Sanibel clinic where veterinarians were able to determine it had a fractured right coracoid bone, which is connected to the shoulder blade and attaches part of the biceps. Due to no other wounds present, the fracture was likely caused by some type of blunt trauma, according to CROW medical staff. The bird was given pain medications and placed in a body wrap to stabilize the fracture. We use a type of tape bandage, said Dr. Robin Bast, CROW staff veterinarian, in describing the material used for the body wrap. It is easily removable and does not damage the feathers when we place and remove it. The body wrap being easily removable is important due to the frequency of rehabilitation needed. The wrap is removed every three days during physical therapy, and then replaced to continue to stabilize the wing as it heals, added Dr. Bast. The gallinule is also receiving pain medications, fluids and nutritional support as well as physical therapy. The body wrap and physical therapy process will continue for nearly a month. The bandage will be in place for three weeks, and then removed for a week of strict cage rest before the bird will be moved to an outside enclosure for further rehabilitation, said Dr. Bast. Purple gallinules are not a common patient seen at CROW. This case reportedly marks just the ninth purple gallinule to be admitted in the past seven years. The patient will be with us for a few more weeks, but so far there have been no complications, Dr. Bast said on June 30. It will be a little while longer before we know if the fracture is healing appropriately, which will be determined using radiographs.

Shell Of The WeekAn Unnamed Dove Snailby Jos H. Leal, PhD, BaileyMatthews National Shell Museum Science Director and CuratorReaching only up to 9 mm (0.35inch), this Dove Snail (family Colummbellidae) in the genus Costoanachis is found locally (Southwest Florida) in shallow water, among seaweeds and sometimes seagrasses. The species, however, apparently has not been named: in the past, some authors called it Costoanachis sparsa (Reeve, 1859), but this latter species is something else. The shell is glossy, with about 20 narrow, somewhat, straight ribs. The ribs are constricted by a number of fine spiral lines, forming beaded nodules. Background color is ivory to yellowish with a pattern of reddish-brown markings. The mantle and foot of the live animal are whitish with brownishgray blotches. The tentacles and siphon are of same colors, but the blotches become rings around those structures. Shell Museum Events See truly giant shells. Watch a live Tank Talk. Take a daily beach walk.

The turtle was rehabilitated and released after recovering from red tide effects. Sea turtle eggs hatch as males or females according to the temperature each egg incubates within the nest. Around the world, fewer male sea turtles are hatching because of changing temperatures. SCCF staff and volunteers monitor island beaches from May through October for sea turtle activity. Every Thursday at 10 a.m., SCCF offers a program called Turtle Tracks, where you can learn more about sea turtle nesting on the islands. Cost is $5. The program is held in the SCCF Nature Center, located at 3333 SanibelCaptiva Road. Call 472-2329 for more information. Our email address is


19 ISLAND SUN JULY 6, 2018Junior Anglers Fish Tarpon BayFor the eighth year in a row, campers from the Sanibel Recreation Center Summer Day Camp program joined Tarpon Bay Explorers fishing captains out on Tarpon Bay for the Optimist Junior Anglers Club fishing event. On Mondays throughout the summer, the Sanibel-Captiva Optimist Club takes junior anglers ranging from fifth to eighth grade to local fishing hot spots around the island. Capt. Brie and Capt. Dan led the junior anglers to great success on the bay. Capt. Bries anglers caught more than 50 fish including sea trout, ladyfish, jack crevalle and mangrove snapper. Capt. Dans anglers caught close to 30 fish. Though Capt. Dans boat came up short on the amount of fish, jumping an 80-pound tarpon produced a lot of excitement among the young anglers. That had to be the highlight of the morning, said Capt. Dan. Its not often you jump a tarpon when fishing for trout. It really got the kids excited and hopefully made a nice memory for them. We love having the kids come out for a fishing trip, said program and education manager Adam Sauerland. We say it time and again, but it all starts with the kids and the more they are exposed to outdoor experiences, the more they will come to love and respect it. Capt.

I just wanted to remember her in a way that helps benefit conservation. Since that day, she had been looking forward to seeing if any sea turtle hatchlings would emerge from that nest. But with the arrival of Tropical Storm Alberto, heavy rainfall and turbulent surf threatened the viability of the nest. According to Anders, Nest #1 was reported as washed over on May 29. Unfortunately, that nest got pretty washed over during the storm, so Im not super hopeful that it will hatch, Sloan wrote in an email dated June 20. But you never know. Then, on the morning of June 23, Sea Turtle Program volunteers reported seeing tiny flipper marks had emerged from Nest #1. Theres no greater feeling than when you see those flipper marks in the sand, said Anders, who arrived at the nest 72 hours later to conduct an inventory of Nest #1. Volunteers return to hatched nests and dig deep into the sand, pulling out any unhatched or infertile eggs as well as hatched shells. They also count any live or dead hatchlings found still buried in the nest, who may have struggled to escape the compacted or wet sand. Anders and Fisher began to dig into Nest #1, with Plein patiently sitting nearby. The pair had only dug for about one minute, and less than a foot into the dense sand when they discovered a live hatchling. Then two more. And then another. Rapidly snapping pictures with her cell phone, Plein was giddy with excitement over the discovery of the four live hatchlings. Its so great to see this nest go full circle, from nesting to birth, she added. Later, all three volunteers placed the newborn sea turtles about 10 feet from the waters edge. Each of the hatchlings scurried towards the incoming waves, their tiny flippers moving furiously as they slowly crawled across the sand. When a crow suddenly appeared, flying just above their heads and eyeing an opportunity for an easy meal, Plein began to wave her arms, shouting, No! No! Get away! The crow eventually flew off and all four hatchlings entered the water, tumbling in the incoming waves before finally disappearing underneath the surface of the gulf. Go! Go! Go! said Plein, cheering on the sea turtles that emerged from the nest she had adopted in memory of her grandmother. At that moment, she began to think of Joyce Wolf. Shes definitely looking down and is gonna protect her babies, she added with a smile. Im really glad her nest hatched and I was able to see it. According to SCCF, the cost of adopting a sea turtle nest is $75. That includes a tax-free deduction of $58 with a T-shirt, or $75 without one. For more information, visit our-work/sea-turtles. Stefanie Plein holding the first hatchling to emerge from the nest photos by Jeff Lysiak Stefanie Plein taking pictures of the sea turtle hatchling From left, Dr. Bob Fisher, Kristie Anders and Stefanie Plein guarding the hatchlings as they entered the gulf Loggerhead hatchlingSCCF Tips For Being Sea Turtle Friendly Do not disturb nesting sea turtles do not to get too close, shine lights on or take flash photos of nesting sea turtles. Turn off or shield all lights that are visible from the beach. Do not use flashlights or cell phone lights on the beach. If necessary, use amber or red LED bulbs. Do not disturb the screens covering nests. They prevent eggs from being eaten by predators and the hatchlings emerge through the holes without assistance. Remove all beach furniture and equipment from the beach at night. Dispose of fishing line properly to avoid wildlife entanglement. Fill in large holes that can trap hatchlings, and pick up litter.

Florida requires that all children under the age of 6 wear a Coast Guard-approved personal flotation device (PFD) when the vessel is under way. Each person over the age of 6 must have an approved PFD available. There are so many options available on the PFD market that purchasing your own can feel overwhelming. We recommend visiting a knowledgeable retailer who can guide you through the process and help you try a few PFDs on for size and comfort before buying. But there are a few helpful things to know before you go. PFDs are divided into five categories Types I, II, III, IV and V. Type I PFDs are designed for offshore racing, or for boating alone in stormy conditions. They are not widely available to the public, and unless you have a serious paddling adventure planned, this is probably overkill. Type II is the standard orange PFD youve seen stowed on many boats. With a wraparound waist cinch and a large head cushion, these are not the most comfortable choice for extended wear. However, they are affordable and are a great option for those who dont plan to wear a PFD all day, but need to store one on board. Type III PFDs are cut like a vest, usually with three safety release buckles on the front. They are much more comfortable than Type II options, and are the best choice for children or older paddlers who are not strong swimmers. These are designed for more casual water-based recreation and are sold in a variety of styles and sizes. Type IV PFDs are throwable devices, and are not acceptable under Florida law. Type V PFDs are an interesting option for more advanced paddlers who value comfort and do not want the weight or bulk of a stowed Type II or III PFD to hinder their speed and performance. For paddlers, there are many inflatable fanny pack-style models available. They are easy to wear and will not inflate unless the water sensor is activated. No matter which type you choose, make sure it fits snugly and comfortably. With a good PFD on board, you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing you are prepared for the unexpected. Ocean Tribe Paddlers is a club that helps the Southwest Florida paddling community better explore, enjoy and understand the ocean. Visit www. or follow on Facebook to learn more. Ocean Tribe Paddlers To Host Group Outing In Sanibel CanalsSanibel Sea Schools Ocean Tribe Paddling Club organizes a meet-up each month for paddling enthusiasts to enjoy a group paddle, share tips and ideas, and meet new friends to paddle with.

The paddle will be held on Tuesday, July 17 from 10:30 a.m. to noon. Those interested in joining the paddle should bring their own paddling equipment (kayaks, canoes, stand up paddleboards and other paddle-powered vessels are all welcome).

According to the results, 52 percent of traditional Lee County public schools, not including charters, earned an A or B. The district maintained its B grade for a fifth year in a row. I am especially proud of the 16 schools that improved one or more letter grade, said Dr. Greg Adkins, superintendent of schools. That is a testament to the dedication and commitment of our teachers, and the hard work of our students. Tice Elementary School raised its grade from a D to a B in one year, while Edison Park Elementary and Estero High School both went from a C to an A. This year, three of Lee high schools earned A grades: Fort Myers High, North Fort Myers High and Estero High. Fifty district schools maintained their letter grades, while 14 dropped. This year, no school received an F grade, and only one, East Lee County High School received a D grade. Last year, the district had five D schools, which put them in Differentiated Accountability (DA) status at the state level. DA schools are identified for escalating interventions, support and monitoring. In four years, we have taken this district from having 23 schools in DA status, down to one, and we are appealing that schools grade. That is a remarkable feat for a district of our size and the diverse student population we have, said Dr. Adkins. We continue to move this district in the right direction with a laser focus on student achievement and helping our kids reach their highest personal potentials. Dolphins, Pufferfish And Epic Paddlessubmitted by Leah BierySanibel Sea Schools third week of summer camp was all about dolphins at the organizations Canterbury School campus, while younger campers learned about pufferfish during Pea-Sized Puffer Week on Sanibel. An all-female paddling camp, called Wahine Toa Week, also challenged participants to test their limits both on and off the water. Campers in Whistlin For Dolphins Week enjoyed the pod life, practicing echolocation and experimenting with underwater sounds and vibrations. Dolphins are top predators that eat about five percent of their body weight each day, so each group seined for fish to take a closer look at some of these charismatic marine mammals prey species. Monofin races and dolphin sculpting completed what was already a pretty fantastic week. Pea-Sized Puffer Week was for peasized campers, and the 4to 6-year-olds who attended were treated to so much fun in the sun. Campers tied on their personal flotation devices and headed out into the gulf to drift like puffed-up puffers. They found a few puffers and burrfish in the seagrass, and had a chance to take a closer look. Pea-sized participants also made a giant papiermch puffer fish, played camouflage games, and learned how puffers use their fused front teeth to pick up tasty bivalves and crustaceans. Wahine Toa Week campers spent the week celebrating girl power by practicing their paddling and survival skills, camping on a remote island and completing an epic paddle from the Sanibel Causeway to Fort Myers Beach. They also made their own sourdough bagels, enjoyed with a side of sunrise views on Friday morning. As usual, each week included surfing, macram tying and plenty of time spent bonding with camp friends.

ISLAND SUN JULY 6, 201826 The Community HouseLemongrass by Resident Chef Jarred HarrisLemongrass, also known as fever grass and sweet rush, is a perennial herb native to Southeast Asia. This plant grows in large grasslike clumps and smells like lemon when the leaves are crushed. The leaves and stems of this plant are used for culinary as well as medicinal purposes. Lemongrass was introduced to the West Indies around the late 1700s, where the plant was and still is used for medicinal purposes. In Jamaica and around the Caribbean, lemongrass is called fever grass. Its made into a tea and used to combat cold and flu symptoms as well as to reduce fevers. Lemongrass arrived in the Americas around the early 1900s and was used mainly for culinary purposes in Asian cookery. There are several species of lemongrass grown in Florida and most of them are edible. The most common variety is the West Indian lemongrass or oil grass. This variety is mainly used for decorative and culinary purposes. Other species of lemongrass include cymbopogon nardus, or citronella grass, and East Indian lemongrass, both are used in herbal medicine and aromatherapy. Citronella lemongrass oil is an effective mosquito, no-see-um and horse fly repellant. East Indian lemongrass oil is used mainly to make perfume. Lemongrass is a very good source of vitamin C and B vitamins. It also provides minerals such as phosphorous, calcium, magnesium, manganese, copper, zinc, potassium and iron. Everyone should grow this versatile plant in their gardens. If you are not a gardener, lemongrass can be found fresh, dried or in paste at most supermarkets. Lemongrass oil can be found in health food stores. Here is a simple recipe to try. Lemongrass Tea Ingredients 4 cups water 2 cups lemongrass stalks (roughly chopped) cup honey Fresh ginger or lime slices (optional) Method Place the water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Add the lemongrass and boil for 5 minutes. Reduce the heat and simmer for an additional 5 minutes. Remove the stalks from the liquid and add the honey. Serve warm, or chill and serve over ice. Garnish with fresh slices of ginger or lime. Resident Chef Jarred Harris heads the Culinary Education Center at The Community House on Sanibel.

27 ISLAND SUN JULY 6, 2018 Poets Corner selected by Hannah Star RogersLiving Between Poemsby Tanya Hochschild I want to be in nature, find again a fierce sense of union, be part of the earths restless energy. I want to throw bones as elephants do to know my own fate. To scatter feathers of birds who have flown endless skies. Feel in their dispersal the distance I must cover. To be the black of the zebras white, together to dazzle the bushveld. To shed my skin to unmask know wildness, feel home. On a hike, to trip on ideas, yet stay on the trail, for in the rhythm of walking is the music of writing. I want to track the spoor of the earth in the white-hot heat of day, find peace waiting for me in a shady spot. And when I am with nature, I know my place in the world and I can write a poem. Tanya Hochschild is member of a Sanibel Writers Group, has participated in Artpoems and Writers Reads on the island, and had two books published. We invite submissions from local poets. Anyone interested may submit their work via email to Islandsunpoetry@ Each week, an individual poem will be showcased. Sanibel Public Library Summer Reading ProgramSanibel Public Library Summer Reading program registration is open to babies, preschoolers, children and teens.

The librarys Summer Reading Program is funded in part by a grant from the Sanibel Public Library Foundations Joan Hunt Cory Childrens Fund.

ISLAND SUN JULY 6, 201828 SUN Book ReviewThe President Is Missingby Di SaggauThe President is Missing is a book that has been flying out of stores everywhere, becoming a best seller. I admit to buying it right after seeing an interview with Bill Clinton and James Patterson talking about how they cowrote the book. Patterson has written a ton of best-sellers. Of late, he has been co-authoring with other writers. Its an approach that seems to work well. This book has received good reviews over all with headlines like, The Day of the Jackal for the 21st century, The political thriller of the decade and This book moves like Air Force One, Big and fast. While not everyone is as kind, I agree with the positive reviews. The President is Missing is a compelling read, and it touches on a subject that is of great concern to many of us, a terrorist attack that would cripple the United States. The book opens with president Duncan, a widower, testifying before a mock House Select Committee, but all he can say is, I have no specific recollection of that, Congressman. One Congressman, from Ohio, intends to have the president impeached for past actions involving a known terrorist, Suliman Cindoruk. Following the rehearsal hearing, the president goes rogue from the White House, because he feels he is the only one who can remedy a huge cyber attack on the United States. The consequences of such an attack would put us in the Dark Ages. Everything would stop working. The commander in chief, with the help of a disguise from an old friend, attends a baseball game to meet with an informant who has information on the upcoming cyberattack. The two are nearly gunned down, and the chase scenes that follow are not only exciting, they introduce us to an intriguing character named Bach. She is named for her devotion to the classical music that plays in her earbuds. Bach has killed on every continental. She has assassinated generals, activists, politicians and businessmen. She has a 100 percent kill rate. The pages sparkle every time Bach appears. Only six people in the presidents inner circle are aware of the code name Dark Ages. Soon it is discovered that there is a traitor in the White House. There are lots of good plot twists, and its interesting to read about the dedication of people who work in government, whose only goal is to serve this great nation. If you havent already, pick up a copy of The President is Missing Its an entertaining thriller about a mortal threat to our nation. School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Readers,As we read, watch and hear about the separation of migrant families, we need to understand and be aware that this horrific situation can also impact our own children. How a child experiences an event and how its handled by those around him have an effect on how traumatizing it can be, notes Child Mind Institute psychologist Dr. Jerry Bubrick. When we, as adults, are caught off guard by events and respond in a highly emotional way, it may impact our children. Television coverage, social media and shocking newspaper headlines can also amplify the impact of this disturbing situation. Many parents are concerned that viewing and hearing about other children who are suffering is traumatic for their own child. Parents are asking, What constitutes a traumatic event for a child? Can young people thrive despite a trauma in their past? How important is the family in helping children through upsetting and destabilizing experiences? These questions are in our minds as we watch our own children observe and absorb the pain of the incarcerated children. Here are some suggestions from experts in the psychological and psychiatric community for parents on assisting their children process trauma through calm and supportive dialog about their feelings As a parent, you cant protect your children from grief, but you can help them express their feelings, comfort them, help them feel safer and teach them how to deal with fear. By allowing and encouraging them to express their feelings, you can help them build healthy coping skills that will serve them well in the future, and confidence that they can overcome adversity, said Dr. Bubrick. Breaking the news When something happens that will get wide coverage, the most important suggestion is that you dont delay telling your children about whats happened: Its much better for the child if youre the one who tells her. You dont want her to hear from some other child, or a television news report. You want to be able to convey the facts, however painful, and set the emotional tone. Take your cues from your child Invite her to tell you anything she may have heard about the incarceration, and how she feels. Give her ample opportunity to ask questions. You want to be prepared to answer (but not prompt) questions about upsetting details. Your goal is to avoid encouraging frightening fantasies. Model calm Its okay to let your child know if youre sad, but if you talk to your child about a traumatic experience in a highly emotional way, then he or she will likely absorb your emotion and very little else. If, on the other hand, you remain calm, he or she is likely to grasp whats important: that tragic events can upset our lives, even deeply, but we can learn from bad experiences and work together to grow stronger. Be reassuring Talking about a catastrophe is always difficult, but this situation of being separated from ones parents is especially tough because of how egocentric children are: theyre likely to focus on whether something like this could happen to them. So, its important to reassure your child about how unusual this kind of event is and the measures that have been taken to prevent this kind of thing from happening to them. You can also assure him that this kind of tragedy is investigated carefully, to identify causes and help prevent it from happening again. Its confidence-building for kids to know that we learn from negative experiences. Help children express their feelings In your conversation (and subsequent ones), you can suggest ways your child might remember those shes lost: draw pictures or tell stories about things you did together. If youre religious, going to church or a synagogue could be valuable. Be developmentally appropriate Dont volunteer too much information, as this may be overwhelming. Instead, try to answer your childs questions. Do your best to answer honestly and clearly. Its okay if you cant answer everything; being available to your child is what matters. Difficult conversations like this arent over in one session; expect to return to the topic as many times as your child needs to come to terms with this experience. Be available If your child is upset, just spending time with him may make him feel safer. Children find great comfort in routines, and doing ordinary things together as a family may be the most effective form of healing.

Ann-Marie is an entrepreneur bringing more than 34 years of customer service experience and 29 years of direct retail experience, said Birgie Miller, DDWS executive director. With an impressive set of skills in management, sales, negotiations, marketing and communications, she also understands the mission of the DDWS and the work of the refuge. Her abilities in working with people of all ages, including volunteers and donors right here on the island and at Ding Darling have been and continue to be very effective. Since moving to the island, Wildman has been involved at Ding Darling as a Refuge Nature Store volunteer and on such committees as the Learning Lavatories and Upcycle Festival. As a board member, she served as liaison to the Nature Store. She steps into the position being vacated by former store manager Jeanne Walsh, who will be moving to Maine in July. Jeanne worked so effectively with the entire DDWS team and volunteers and brought the Nature Store to a new level of quality and increased sales, so it is with much sadness that we say farewell, added Miller. But it is her success that Ann-Marie will carry forward, working with the rest of the DDWS team, refuge staff and loyal volunteers. DDWS operates the Refuge Nature Store, proceeds from which benefit wildlife, habitat conservation, education and research projects taking place within the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge Complex.

Organizers remind all area nonprofits there is still time, but applications must be received by Sunday, July 29. To download an application, visit and find the link on the Home Page for Preliminary Application. Email the completed application to and to grants committee chairs Janine Boardman,, and Diane Chesley, After screening for compliance with agreed-upon criteria, detailed applications will be distributed in early October, with a final submission deadline of October 26. The mission of Zonta is to empower women and girls, and projects that are likely to earn grants will focus on helping women with education, economic self-sufficiency, safety and health. Grants co-chair Diane Chesley said, We want applications that address one or more of these aspects of empowering women. We also look for innovation, and proposals that are specific, with measureable outcomes. A reminder: since Zonta is non-sectarian, faith-based organizations are not eligible to apply.

Using elements like wood, stone, clay, mud and other materials inspired by the environment can liven up any room. Bringing the outside in is one of the easiest ways to freshen up your house, no matter what time of year it is. Here are a few ways to use natural textures throughout your space: Stone countertops bring the colors, veins and speckles of the earths minerals to life. Consider placing them in the kitchen, bathroom, or both. This is a simple yet subtle way to incorporate earthen beauty into your home design. Wooden accents in the form of living or dining room furniture make for a rustic yet elegant statement throughout the house. Its a more rugged take on traditional style that embraces the outdoors for all its worth. Try a farmhouse table in the kitchen, dining area or entryway of your home. Leather is a timeless texture that turns any room into a chic and sophisticated space. Leather sofas and chairs can add a fun and traditional yet timeless touch to your living areas. Place a leather lounge chair in your office or entryway as an endearing statement piece. Marble home decor is trendier than ever, and it stands as a great way to embrace natural textures throughout your space. Whether youre in love with marble coffee tables and desks, or youd rather take advantage of bowls, lamps, candle holders and other accessories, there are dozens of ways to utilize this material. Even plates, cutting boards and flatware with marbleized design make a sophisticated statement in the kitchen. Greenery was all the rage in 2017, but we believe the trend of decorating with natural foliage throughout your home will continue. From fresh flower arrangements to winding vines and shrubbery, you can embrace the great outdoors year-round and play with different accents in various rooms. Fill pillar holders with candles wrapped in green sprigs real or fake for the perfect centerpiece. A mantle adorned with a small eucalyptus tree looks as captivating as its natural fragrance. Succulents are popular as ever, and they can be placed near any window in your home to create a modern and refreshing indoor garden. You can even go simple and place fresh flowers throughout the house. Your options are endless. Place greenery in clay pots to maximize the use of natural textures in an efficient space. Clay is a beautiful option that can easily bring the outdoors in to any room of your home in a subtle yet endearing way.

We made smores for dessert, noted Lucas. And Char brought her ukulele, so we spent the night singing songs. For the final day of the camp, campers woke up before sunrise and toasted the bagels they had made two days earlier. They then paddled all the way to Fort Myers Beach for lunch. Along the way, we saw a sea turtle swim past us, added Lucas. Two participants from this years camp, twin sisters Sydney and Miranda Guse from Ocala, Florida, reflected upon their experiences. I have visited Sanibel beaches before, but never attended any Sanibel Sea School programs before, said Sydney, whose favorite school subject is math. I enjoyed camping at Picnic Island. My favorite activity was paddleboarding, especially near Bowmans Beach. I also enjoyed the scavenger hunt and picnic afterwards. Miranda noted that she enjoyed learning how to change the oil in a car. It was a very hands-on experience which I can use in the future, she said. It also helped bring our group closer together. But the Guse sisters agreed that the highlight of the week was their Picnic Island excursion. My favorite memory is when we were on Picnic Island, added Miranda, whose favorite school subject is history. We all sat on the shore and sang to our counselors ukulele. Lucas, who took part in her first Wahine Toa Camp since joining the Sanibel Sea School staff late last year, called the experience very empowering. Since we had a small group, it was a great bonding experience, she said. Everyone did everything together. I really enjoyed watching them learning. Its something Ill never forget. Sanibel Sea School is offering several more camp experiences for teens this summer, including Coral Reef Week (July 9 to 14, open to ages 11 and 12; July 16 to 20, open to ages 13 to 15), Canoeing the Caloosahatchee (July 23 to 27) and a Belize Coral Reef Expedition (July 30 to August 8, open to ages 15 to 18).

ISLAND SUN JULY 6, 201840 Over the years, clients have asked me how to provide for educational gifts within their estate plan, specifically with trust planning. While a variety of tax-favored educational accounts exist like state-sponsored prepaid college tuition plans or Section 529 accounts, today Im going to limit the discussion to the creation of a trusts for these purposes. There are two types of trusts: lifetime gift trusts or testamentary (after death) trusts. Both can be built inside an estate plan and can serve the same purpose. Since most of my clients have children or grandchildren who need the money now rather than waiting until the clients demise, lifetime education trusts are more common. Assuming you want to benefit multiple beneficiaries, there are two different types of educational trusts. One would be a pooled trust where the sums contributed can be allocated among the beneficiaries as the trustee determines, while the other would be separate share trusts, where the amounts contributed are divided proportionately among the beneficiaries. The advantages to a pooled trust include the fact that the amounts can be used disproportionately among the beneficiaries. The ones who have the greatest need would presumably consume more of the trust. This is also the most challenging problem to a pooled trust, and why I usually recommend avoiding this technique. Assume, for example, that Jane and Joe contribute $240,000 to a pooled trust, and they have three grandchildren, Bob, Charles and Denise. Bob is the first grandchild who attends Harvard at a cost of $70,000 annually. By the time his siblings Charles and Denise start college, Bobs educational expenses have consumed the entire trust. Over my career, I have drafted several pooled educational trust funds. In some of those instances, beneficiaries fought over access to the funds. The trustee has a fiduciary duty to all beneficiaries. Imagine a trust where the oldest beneficiary is already in college but one of the beneficiaries is a toddler. How much should the trustee allow the first beneficiary to consume, knowing that the trustee has a fiduciary duty to the younger beneficiaries to have something left for them? Consider further that with the rise of college tuition outpacing inflation even how should the trustee allocate funds as each beneficiary attends school? Add to that the difference in cost between a state school and a private institution and you have a real trustee conundrum. Suppose that Jane and Joe instead impose a limit on the amount that any one beneficiary can consume to avoid the above problem. In that case, why not instead have separate trust shares? Here, Jane and Joe instead fund an educational trust with $240,000 for Bob, Charles and Denise but create separate $80,000 shares for each. When the amount is consumed then thats all that the beneficiary would have. If the older beneficiaries dont consume their entire share, either the remainder is distributed outright to them at an certain age or it instead would be added to the younger beneficiarys shares. You might see that theres much thought that should be put into the planning behind an educational trust. I havent even touched upon several other issues that should be thought through. These include who should act as the trustee, how the funds should be invested, whether a beneficiarys other resources should be considered before making distributions, or whether vocational education would be treated similarly to a more traditional bachelors degree. Ultimately, providing for a young persons education is one of the best gifts you can bestow. Its akin to the proverbial teaching a man to fish rather than giving him a fish. When you provide a youngster a means to make a living, youve passed along something more valuable than anything else they can inherit. 2018 Craig R. Hersch.

Speaker Discusses Local EconomyThe Sanibel & Captiva Islands Chamber of Commerce hosted Pamela Johnson, interim director of Lee County Economic Development, as the guest speaker for the June business luncheon, held at Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort & Spa. Johnson gave members an overview of the areas fiscal health. Its a good economy right now, Johnson said. We strive to make Lee County an attractive area to new businesses and have a growing entrepreneurial community. There are a lot of good things happening. Lee County, consistently ranked one of the nations job growth leaders, is home to a thriving business community and excellent quality of life. It has the fourth best tax climate in the nation, and fosters a pro-business attitude and vibrant workforce. The average annual salary is $40,000 and the largest employment industry is retail with health care and social assistance in close second. There was a 3.9 percent increase in tourism spending year-over-year for the winter 2018 season, which brought 1.3 million visitors to the beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel.

Big 3 Basketball Is Living Testimony To Where They Are Nowby Ed FrankIts fun to recall former athletes as Sports Illustrated does annually with its Where are they Now edition. But a relatively new basketball league, Big 3, provides the opportunity to see the stars of yesterday in live action today. Big 3 was founded last year by actor and music legend Ice Cube and entertainment executive Jeff Kwatinetz. The eight teams comprising the league include a virtual whos who of former NBA players and coaches Far different from regular basketball, the roving teams play on just half-a-court in 3-on 3 competitions. And the rules of the game also are far different. The 10-week season tipped off June 22 and each Friday night all eight teams four games compete in NBA arenas in Houston, Chicago, Oakland, Detroit, Miami, Toronto, Boston and Atlanta. The playoffs in Week Nine will be in Dallas with the championship in Barclays Center, Brooklyn, New York. Should you want to watch this exciting back-to-back brand of basketball on July 20 in the American Airlines Arena in Miami, the four games will pit the Killer 3s against the Ball Hogs; Tri State versus Ghost Busters; 3s Company versus 3 Headed Monsters, and Trilogy versus Power. But heres just a sampling of the stars you will see: The eight coaches are Rick Mahorn (Trilogy); Gary Payton (3-Headed Monsters); Nancy Lieberman (Power); George The Iceman Gervan (Ghost Busters); Charles Oakley (Killer3s); Michael Cooper (3s Company); Julius Dr. J Erving (Tri-State), and Rick Barry (Ball Hogs). Each team is limited to six players and oh what memories some of these Big 3 players bring Chauncey Billups, Metta World Peace, Drew Gooden, Amare Stoudemire, Brian Scalabrine, Glen Big Baby Davis, Nate Robinson, Alan Henderson, Bonzi Wells, Quentin Richardson and Mike Bibby. And these are just a few of the current Big 3 players. We wont attempt to describe all the Big 3 rules, but obviously they were crafted to provide up-tempo basketball. For example, the shot clock is only 14 seconds. There are four-point zones 30 feet from the basket. To win, a team must score 50 points and lead by at least two points. Halftime occurs when one team scores 25 points. Although this is just the leagues second season, its popularity appears to be catching on. The games are broadcast live on Fox Broadcast Network and FS1. Its great to know that these stars of yesteryear can still compete today. Miracle Off To Good Start In Second Half Bolstered by Minnesota Twins regulars Miquel Sano and Jorge Polanco, the Fort Myers Miracle baseball team started the week with a second-half record of 6-4, which placed the team in first place in the Florida State League South Division. Sano was sent down to the Miracle in an attempt to regain his batting stroke, and Polanco was here for just two games following his 80-game suspension for testing positive for performance enhancing drugs. Sano was hitting .345 in eight games with the Miracle and Polanco .333 in two games. The Miracle is on the road this weekend at Bradenton, returning home to Hammond Stadium Monday for a four-game series against Palm Beach. All have 7 p.m. starts. SUN ISLAND SUN JULY 6, 201844 LCEC Rates Are Fourth Lowest In FloridaLee County Electric Cooperative (LCEC) recently announced that its electric rates are the fourth lowest amongst electric providers in the state of Florida as of the latest comparison released in April 2018. These recent industry benchmarks reflect LCECs operating expenses per 1,000 kWh sold as being in the lowest quartile nationwide and one of the lowest amongst comparable cooperatives in the state. Rate levels are determined through forecasting sales levels (expected revenue) compared to budgeted spending needs for operations, power supply and capital investment in the electric infrastructure. When revenue is expected to be more favorable compared to spending, LCEC passes those savings through to customers in the form of stable rates and sometimes a reduction. LCEC has decreased rates five times since 2014 and has not had a rate increase for 10 years in a row. This means that LCEC customers are paying less for electricity today than they were a decade ago. We are very pleased to be able to pass through operating and power cost savings to our customers, LCEC CFO Denise Vidal said. LCEC continually strives to contain costs in order to keep rates competitive, while providing excellent reliability and customer service. SPORTS QUIZ 1.

Class topics include learning the history of the islands, getting familiar with aspects of Sanibel city planning, learning about the Captiva Erosion Prevention District, discussing the differences in selling on the islands versus selling on mainland Lee County, and marketing specifically to buyers looking for condominiums and second homes. Several of the local nonprofit organizations on the islands are part of the instruction as well.

Volunteers Sought For Family Mentor ProgramThe United Way Volunteer Center and the Childrens Network of Southwest Florida are recruiting individuals to become family mentors. Volunteers will be trained and matched with parents who have been involved in the Child Welfare System and are ready to be reunified with their children. An ideal family mentor will be one who can be nonjudgmental, offer a minimum of an hour a week to work with the parent(s) and provide a caring and supportive relationship to reduce the feeling of isolation in the spirit of families helping families. Mentors will assist parents with basic parenting and family budgeting skills by teaching, coaching and modeling. Todays parents need a support system. Each mentor will work to build a committed and trusting relationship with the parents, supporting them though the transition. The mentor will empower the parents to define and meet goals for themselves, to achieve self-reliance and offer advice that parents may be uncomfortable seeking elsewhere. Building this kind of relationship is particularly important for struggling families who have few role models or positive outlets for both children and adults. Training classes are offered monthly and will cover the topics such as confidentiality, planning for success, family engagement and an overview of the Child Welfare System.

Floridians have the wonderful opportunity to enjoy fresh vegetables all year long, but gardeners everywhere enjoy the thrill of the summer garden bursting with vegetables. Luscious commodities such as asparagus, garlic, greens, colorful varieties of tomatoes, carrots, cucumbers and eggplant, are ready for your consumption. Its always great to eat vegetables fresh from the garden, or tossed together to make different salads. One of our favorites is mixing basil and tomatoes from the garden with fresh mozzarella for an irresistible Caprese salad. When youre not in the mood for salad, a simple and sometimes overlooked technique is to roast vegetables. We love our roasted veggies and eat them multiple times per week. If you are new to roasting vegetables, you may be surprised at how yummy they are. Even picky veggie eaters tend to like them roasted, and often go back for seconds! The caramelization brings out a totally different and wonderful flavor. Choose one veggie or roast a colorful combination. The reds, oranges, yellows, purples and greens, all add different nutrients. Brightly colored vegetables are more nutrientdense and rich in antioxidants. Pair with a piece of fish or other protein, and youll have a delicious and healthy meal. Toss the vegetables with some sea salt, garlic or your other favorite seasonings, and olive or coconut oil. Spread the vegetables out well on a baking sheet, or the trapped steam will stew rather than caramelize them. Roast at 425 degrees, stirring every 15 minutes to allow for an even roast. Roast until the vegetable tips are toasty, usually 25 top 40 minutes. Veggies like carrots and beets take longer to roast than green beans, peppers, or mushrooms. Have fun as you try different tasty combinations. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

SUN deaRPharmacistIts Tough Getting Olderby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Readers:As we age, we notice symptoms creeping up every few months. With women, its called menopause and includes many symptoms such as fatigue, forgetfulness, hot flashes, vaginal discomfort or atrophy, decreased libido, irritability and insomnia. Menopause can be surgically induced, as occurs when you get a total hysterectomy. With men, its termed andropause and the symptoms include reduced fatigue, sex drive, weak erections, depression, loss of strength and muscle mass, weight gain as well as occasional night sweats akin to a womans hot flash. You might find that youre less competitive than normal. In the news recently, there have been some interesting findings reported from brand new studies. The first that comes to mind is about post-menopausal women and how they have an elevated risk for heart failure or coronary heart disease, if they have higher testosterone levels compared to estradiol (an estrogen hormone). What about your brain and mood? For sure, psychological symptoms are one of the first (and worst) things noticed by men and women during menopause and andropause. You might think youre going crazy, and so might those around you. It differs for everyone, and new research suggests that if youve been struggling with mental health issues prior to menopause/ andropause, they are bound to get worse. In particular, symptoms such as panic attacks and suicidal ideation seem to heighten, and its much harder to deal with than typical annoyances such as depression, irritability, mood swings, insomnia and memory loss. The CDC found that the rate of women committing suicide has been on the rise since the year 2000, its up by 50 percent and the average age is between 45 and 64. I have to wonder how many of these people were brought to the brink from the use of mind-bending anxiolytics or antidepressants that are thought to impair otherwise good judgement and possibly raise risk of suicide. It brings to mind fashionista Kate Spade and TV chef Anthony Bourdain, both of whom were taking anti-anxiety medications. They impact your brain and sometimes in a good way, but also in a bad way due to unexpected side effects. Today, Id like to offer a few tips that could help you, as a couple, age more comfortably together and minimize the problems that drive people to doctors, or worse, to psychiatrists who numb you with addictive medications. Here are eight ideas to get your hormones balanced: 1. Manage stressful situations 2. Avoid estrogenic chemicals 3. Maintain a healthy sex life 4. Watch what you eat 5. Exercise 6. Actually, sleep at night 7. Get enough rest 8. Aswhagandha This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: I have been dating my boyfriend for over a year, and he has been a cigarette smoker since before we dated. I really want him to quit smoking, and he says he knows he should but he doesnt do anything about it. Can you suggest what I should do?A: From what you have shared, it seems like your boyfriend is not ready to become a non-smoker, at least for now or he would have made some attempt to stop. Smoking is a very difficult addiction to break. While there are several modalities to use to become a nonsmoker, one has to be ready to stop and really WANT to stop. You can take a very positive approach like you have and let him know how much it would mean for his health and for both of you. However, it has to be his decision only when he is ready. I would avoid any manipulative or controlling tactics or ultimatums because even if he does quit, he is very likely to relapse because he wouldnt be stopping for himself, and he has to stop for himself first. I cannot emphasize that enough. Hopefully, there will come a time that he will want to become a non-smoker and, when that time comes, he may want to contemplate some different ways to stop and even talk with his physician about various options. I have worked with many clients over the years who had success with hypnosis if they truly wanted to stop. It is a behavioral change through accessing the subconscious mind through the power of suggestion. Its totally natural, and he can become a nonsmoker in as little as three sessions. Some smokers do stop cold turkey, however. The withdraw symptoms can be intense and, to reiterate, one can only stop for the self, not someone else. Stay positive and be patient, and hopefully you will see some positive results.

ISLAND SUN JULY 6, 201854 PLACE CLASSIFIED CLASSIFIED CLASSIFIED 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 JULY 6, 2018 My Stars FOR WEEK OF JULY 9, 2018Aries (March 21 to April 19) Dont be Sheepish about asking questions and demanding answers. You not only gain needed information, but also respect for your steadfast search for the truth. Taurus (April 20 to May 20) A money problem that shows up early in the week is expeditiously resolved by savvy Bovines who know how to turn a momentary financial lapse into a monetary gain. Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Its a good time to shed negative energy-draining forces and develop a positive approach to handling current, as well as upcoming, personal and/or professional situations. Cancer (June 21 to July 22) Your urge to do your best on a current task is commendable. But dont let it become all-consuming. Spend some spiritually restorative time with those who love you. Leo (July 23 to August 22) This could be a good time for all you Leos and Leonas to take your bows for your recent achievements and then go off to enjoy some fun times with your prides and joys. Virgo (August 23 to September 22) A negative response to a well-intentioned suggestion could communicate a sense of distrust you might later find hard to refute. Think carefully before reacting. Libra (September 23 to October 22) Your loving attention comforts a family member who is feeling a bit out of sorts. But be careful to prioritize your time so you dont neglect your work duties. Scorpio (October 23 to November 21) Your curiosity might be resented by some. But those who know you will support your penchant for never settling for less than the truth. So stay with it. Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21) A pesky situation from the past recurs, albeit in an altered form. Deal with it promptly before it can go from merely irksome to decidedly troublesome. Capricorn (December 22 to January 19) Dont wait too long to submit your proposals after giving them a last look-over. If necessary, you should be able to defend any portion called into question. Aquarius (January 20 to February 18) A bid to use your workplace dispute-settling skills in another situation is tempting. But be careful: You might not have all the facts youll need if you agree to do it. Pisces (February 19 to March 20) That sense of self-doubt is so untypical of you, you should have no qualms in shaking it off. Remind yourself of all youve done and can do, and then do it again. Born This Week: Your ability to charm others without sacrificing sincerity is what makes people want to follow your leadership. It was popular British romance author Jilly Cooper who made the following observation: The male is a domestic animal which, if treated with firmness, can be trained to do most things. If youre like the average human, you blink about 17,000 times every day. Filmmaker George Lucas is arguably best known for his Star Wars franchise, but he also directed American Graffiti. During the making of that earlier film he designated each reel of film with an R before the reels number, and each instance of dialog was prefixed with a D. At one point during the sound mixing, the sound designer needed to use Reel 2, Dialog 2, and so asked for R2D2. Lucas liked the sound of it so much that he used it for the name of a robot character in his later work. At 6 feet, 4 inches tall, Abraham Lincoln is the tallest president in the history of the United States. Id be very surprised if youd ever heard of Bokassa I, former emperor of the Central African Republic. Its interesting to note, though, that while he was on trial for infanticide, cannibalism and torture, he commented, Being head of state is an extremely thankless job. If you suffer from ophidiophobia and, sadly, many people do you may find the following tidbit to be rather unsettling: There are more than 3,000 different species of snakes. Researchers have discovered that humans arent the only ones to imbibe alcohol on a regular basis. It seems that the tiny pen-tailed tree shrew makes a habit of consuming naturally fermented palm flower nectar, which has an alcohol content of 3.8 percent comparable to that of most beers. An intelligent man is sometimes forced to be drunk to spend time with his fools.
