The Community House Commissioners Offer Farewell To City Attorneyby Jeff LysiakAfter the lone public hearing on their agenda was continued to the August meeting, members of the Sanibel Planning Commission spent a majority of their time on Tuesday offering best wishes to City Attorney Ken Cuyler, whose retirement after 16 years of service to the community became effective at 5 p.m. on July 10. Two months ago, Cuyler announced his intention to retire from the post he has held since joining the city in 2002. Your service to the city council as well as to the (planning) commission is deeply appreciated, said Commission Chairman Dr. Phillip Marks before delivering a number of gifts to Cuyler, including a set of etched wine glasses and a decanter, created by Sanibel artist Luc Century. Marks also called the longtime legal counselor a wonderful person and friend. During Mondays city council meeting, attorney John Agnew of the Henderson Franklin law firm was appointed the citys legal representative on an interim basis. Several other law firms including the Peterson Law Group and Vose Law Firm along with four individuals including Sherri Enright, Joseph DiNovo, Stacey John Manning and John Turner had submitted their names for consideration. Senior Planner Roy Gibson also submitted one final legal document for Cuyler to review before his departure, an Official Notice To Stop Work. That is one piece of legal paperwork I will pay particular attention to, said Cuyler, who expressed his thanks to members of the commission before departing MacKenzie Hall. Travel well and travel wise, Commissioner Karen Storjohann added. At the beginning of the planning commission session, City Manager Judie Zimomra officially introduced Keith Williams as the citys new acting director of the planning department. Gibson had served as acting director of planning over the past six-plus months in the absence of planning director Jim Jordan, who remains out on sick leave. Williams, a city employee for the past six years, also serves as director of the citys public works department. In addition, the commissions July 24 meeting has been cancelled. The next meeting will be held on Tuesday, August 14. Resurfacing Project Under Way In The DunesThe City of Sanibels annual street resurfacing project commenced on July 9 in The Dunes subdivision.

She will join the preschools team of Director Ana Abella and three-yearolds teacher Lora Lea Plummer, giving students a warm welcome and providing loving care as the children transition to their first day of a new school year. Ms. Nancy, as the children will call her, is a lifelong educator with more than 20 years of experience teaching ages from preschool to second grade. She holds a master of arts degree in English education with a concentration in family literacy, as well as a bachelor of arts degree in elementary/secondary education. Black believes that all children are unique and should be celebrated for their individual talents and gifts. She said, My educational philosophy can be summed up with a quote from Plato: Do not train youth to learn by harshness, but lead them to it by what amuses their minds. Then you may discover the peculiar bent of the genius of each. The preschool currently has openings in 2-, 3and 4-year-olds classes, which run from 8 a.m. to 2:45 p.m., with aftercare available. VPK classes run five mornings a week for eligible students. Scholarships for financial aid, based on economic needs, are available. Classes are small, allowing for individual attention to each childs unique gifts and needs.

ISLAND SUN JULY 13, 20186 Diving Ospreys And Walking Batfish submitted by Leah BieryCampers at Sanibel Sea School enjoyed exploring two fascinating coastal creatures during Fishin With Osprey Week at the organizations flagship campus on Sanibel and Going Batty for Batfish Week at Canterbury School in Fort Myers. Ospreys are fishing birds, with fish making up about 99 percent of their diet, so each camp group spent lots of time fishing with seine nets and cast nets. Participants had a chance to observe an active osprey nest through binoculars, then they built a life-size replica using natural materials gathered on the beach. There was also a birdwatching field trip to Ding Darling, a canoe trip to observe ospreys in their habitat, and an exciting obstacle course. Batfish Week campers learned about these strange fish with modified pectoral fins that help them walk along the bottom of the sea. Often found in seagrass beds, sandy areas, mud and rubble, they feed on crustaceans, mollusks and worms. Batfish have a special lure to attract their prey, so participants crafted their own lures and attempted to attract fish into their nets. They also ran a batfish-themed relay race, snorkeled in batfish habitat and made batfish art. As usual, there was plenty of time for surfboard paddling, macram tying, and hanging out with camp friends. Sanibel Sea School is a 501(c)3 nonprofit whose mission is to improve the oceans future, one person at a time. To learn more, visit www. sanibelseaschool.org.

To me, this comes down to two issues the striping and the speed humps, said Mayor Kevin Ruane while discussing road work currently under way in The Dunes. Last month, members of the council heard a presentation from Keith Williams, the citys public works department director. Based upon his staffs evaluation of the four speed humps previously installed throughout The Dunes (which have been removed due to the paving work, which began on July 9), it was recommended that one of those devices be relocated from the northern loop of Sand Castle Road to a location along the southern loop. A new speed hump was also proposed to be installed along the Albatross Road straightaway. On June 5, Chief William Dalton of the Sanibel Police Department also suggested creating a no passing zone throughout The Dunes in response to the city staffs recommendation to paint double yellow striping on all roadways within the subdivision. During their deliberations on Monday, members of the council decided only to remove one speed hump previously located along the northern loop of Sand Castle Road and relocate the traffic calming device to Albatross Road. That decision came after Williams said that the citys primary mission to lower traffic speed throughout The Dunes has been accomplished. A number of residents from The Dunes spoke against the councils decision to approve painting a double yellow line throughout the subdivision. They cited several examples of large commercial vehicles and landscaping trucks parked along Sand Castle Roads blind curves, and that in order to pass those obstructions, drivers will have to break the law and cross the double line. Dalton, however, explained that it is not against the law to pass a vehicle parked alongside the road. You may pass a vehicle as long as you dont exceed the speed limit to do it, said Dalton, who also suggested that if residents see a vehicle parked in a manner that creates a safety hazard, they can call the Sanibel Police Department (472-3111) to report the incident. David Joffe, a longtime homeowner within The Dunes, suggested that the council delay approving the painting of the double yellow striping along Sand Castle Road until all of the residents within the subdivision could be contacted and asked if they approved of the proposed roadway improvements. That request was not granted, since work was already under way as of Monday morning. None of you are going to be driving over speed humps on your way home, resident Anne Joffe told the council, and neither should I. The striping issue to me is a safety issue, said Councilwoman Holly Smith, who later made the motion to approve both the painting element and speed hump relocation. Following some additional discussion, council voted to approve the improvements, 5 to 0. In other business, Mayor Kevin Ruane informed his fellow council members of the Florida Department of Environmental Protections decision to cut back on the frequency of water quality testing, including sample tests that are currently being conducted on a weekly basis at Bowmans Beach. Sanibels lone testing facility, part of the Florida Healthy Beaches program, is also under consideration of being eliminated. To remove testing while were in this state of emergency is bizarre, said Ruane. According to James Evans of the citys department of natural resources, the weekly tests which screen for bacteria harmful to human and animals in the water cost $62.78 per sample. In addition to requesting a call for action so citizens can get involved, council members authorized Smith to submit a request to the Lee County Tourism Development Council (TDC) for funding to continue water quality testing on the island. Were not just doing the ask for Sanibel, said Smith. Were doing it for every beach thats not going to be sampled. Vice Mayor Mick Denham also suggested that the city reach out to every homeowners association on Sanibel and request that they contact Florida Governor Rick Scotts office, the federal government and the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) with a letter expressing concerns for water quality. Also, councilors unanimously approved a draft ordinance prohibiting the distribution of plastic straws on Sanibel. The ordinance, proposed by Councilman Jason Maughan, finds in the best interest, safety and welfare of the citizens and visitors that it should prohibit the sale and distribution of plastic straws. The prohibition would not apply to prepackaged beverages prepared outside of the city, medical and dental facilities, use of straws by disabled people who rely on their use to consume beverages or dietary supplements, multiple use straws or on land owned and managed by the Lee County School Board, Lee County, the state of Florida or the federal government. Enforcement of the ban will become effective after 120 days following passage of the ordinance. The first offense would carry a written warning; second offense a $50 fine; third offense a $200 fine; fourth and subsequent offenses a $500 fine. The idea of banning plastic straws on Sanibel was brought before the council in June by representatives of Coastal Keepers, whose Strawless On Sanibel (SOS) initiative began last year. Since it started, more than a dozen island businesses had joined the initiative and eliminated using single use plastic straws. Vice Mayor Mick Denham, left, recognized City of Sanibel employees who earned college degrees through the citys Educational Tuition Assistance Program. They included, from left, Jason Goodrich, Kurt Schulte, Matt Fannon, Crystal Mansell, Andrea Miller, Officer Grace Towler, James Evans and Scotty Lynn Kelly. photos by Jeff Lysiak Sanibel resident Rene Affourtit was recognized for his years of service to the Tourist Development Council

Plant SmartCoastal Sandspurby Gerri ReavesFew plants are less welcome than sandspurs, and Florida has plenty of them. In fact, several sandspur species are native to the state. Who doesnt have childhood memories of walking barefoot through a yard or field, only to be punctured by the powerful little burrs? Or who hasnt wandered through weeds and emerged with spiky burrs clinging to clothing, shoes and socks? Coastal sandspur ( Cenchrus spinifex ) is common in undeveloped lots and fields, in waste areas, along roadsides and sidewalks, and even in yards where homeowners dont keep a watchful eye. This species is also called grass bur, coastal sandbur, field sandspur and spiny burrgrass. This tough and resilient annual has a fibrous root system and can be found in South Florida throughout the year. It forms mats and grows well in sand, as the name implies. They rarely grow in wetlands areas. The jointed stems, or culms, grow from only a few inches long to over two feet. The plant can be sprawling or upright and sometimes forms runners. The flat leaf blade is two to six inches long and very narrow. The edges of the sheath the lower part of the leaf that encloses the stem -have little hairs. The terminal inflorescence is a group of up to 20 shiny burrs that each have eight to 40 spines. One way to take revenge on sandspurs is to eat them. An interesting nutritional fact: the seeds of this member of the grass family are high in oil content. Of course, the spines must be removed before preparing the dish a porridge, for example. Several inventive methods are recommended for separating the spines from the seeds: roasting off the spines while holding the stem (think marshmallow roast), the age-old practice of pounding and winnowing, and rubbing the burrs between pieces of leather or other impenetrable material. Whether you curse or eat sandspurs, remember that, troublesome though they are, they are natives and evolution has given them a function in the ecosystem.

Dodging The Patchy Red Tide by Capt. Matt MitchellPatchy areas of red tide were the news on the water this week, with it pushing in and out of the passes and causing all the bait in our livewells to die. Often these small areas of red tide we experienced in the sound this week were located in and around the passes and moved fast. Luckily, most days all it took was the tide to change for it to move back out into the gulf. There is not a more heart sinking feeling when guiding clients than pulling up to pick them up or heading into that first fishing spot of the day and all the live bait you have worked so hard to get is dead. This summers never ending patchy red tide, along with what now includes some small areas of green floating algae being pushed down the river, have made it just tough going some days.This week, having a few other bait options on board of either dead baits, live shrimp or soft plastics saved a few days on the water when all our live bait fish died. Moving quickly away from the passes during the red tide days to the eastern side of the sound, anglers found lots of life including big schools of threadfin herring and small fry bait. Bait fish and mullet are a quick tell tail sign of whether the area is free of red tide as these species are some of the first affected. Many of the fish in the sound have moved east away from the passes during the red tide times and, once located, its non-stop action. Look for the best action on the deeper grass flats ranging from four to six feet. Trout, Spanish mackerel, jacks, small sharks and ladyfish have been all around these big bait schools in the middle to southeastern sound. Plastic jigs work well here but my go to has been a small pinfish fished under a float which has been catching a fish on basically every cast. Saving some of the ladyfish for cut redfish baits while doing this open flats fishing. I stayed away from the passes for a few days and then had no issues with baits dying. Catch and release snook action in and around the passes is still going strong. Unfortunately, if youre heading into the passes, its just not possible to see the red until its too late and all your bait is dead. Heading to the passes went one of two ways: either non-stop snook action or catastrophic for your bait. Until this red tide clears, I will continue to bring some other bait options along every day. Live or frozen jumbo shrimp have been my safety net as live shrimp do not get affected by the red tide. Although our live bait shrimp run on the small side this time of year, some live bait, no matter how small, is better than none. Soft plastic baits are another option with gulps being a good choice fished under a popping cork to catch most of the flats species. 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.

Shell Of The WeekThe i-Conic Alphabet Coneby Jos H. Leal, PhD, BaileyMatthews National Shell Museum Science Director and CuratorWith their colorful shells, Alphabet Cones, Conus spurius Gmelin, 1791, are one of the most celebrated local mollusks in Southwest Florida. Alphabet Cones hatch from egg capsules, swim only for a couple of hours at most, then settle to the bottom as young adults. The photos of the larval Alphabet Cones were taken just after hatching, and published for the first time in a 2017 American Malacological Bulletin article by National Shell Museum staff (Jos H. Leal and Rebecca Mensch) in cooperation with cone snail expert Alan J. Kohn of the University of Washington in Seattle.

CROW Case Of The Week: Hook And Line Victimsby Bob PetcherFishing line and hooks can reel in a good catch for an angler. The fishing gear can also be a major impediment or deadly debris for wildlife. Unfortunately, birds or other animals entangled in monofilament line are either in a helpless state or worse deceased after a long struggle and slow starvation. The fact is monofilament line and hooks that have been discarded or left by careless fishermen can entangle, choke, snag and even kill its victims. For example, birds have been found hanging upside down in trees, exhausted after hours of struggling to try to free themselves from being wrapped up in lines. It is also a fact that some of those animals suffer agonizing deaths due to the entanglement. Not only can the clear, strong, flexible plastic do harm to birds, manatees, sea turtles, whales, dolphins and rays (to name a few), it also non-biodegradable. Scientists estimate it can take 300 to 500 years to decompose. Anglers have been urged to dispose of any used or loose fishing line within provided monofilament stations, often found at boat ramps, fishing piers or other park sites that fishing takes place. These recycling stations can be important to the livelihood of all creatures around the sea and even humans who swim in open waters. It is hoped that through continued educational awareness, more anglers will be reached and their behavior modified. Each fall, local marine cleanups events called Monofilament Madness encourage volunteers to help rid of discarded line and other debris from local waters via boats, kayaks, canoes, jet skis and anything else that floats. Officials have stated that previous Monofilament Madness cleanups have produced enough discarded fishing line to stretch from Fort Myers to Tallahassee. One of the most common victims of monofilament line entanglement is the brown pelican (Pelecanus occidentalis). At CROW, an adult brown pelican was recently admitted to the clinic after it was found near Blind Pass with monofilament line wrapped around its body, preventing it from flying. The pelican also had two hooks, one embedded in its beak and the other in its left shoulder. While CROW officials are uncertain how this particular patient became entangled or how the fishing gear got into its environment, discarded fishing line can be seen as a likely cause. The rehabilitation clinic is continuously involved in a campaign called Clear Your Gear with other island organizations such as The City of Sanibel, Sanibel Sea School, Monofilament Busters, SCCF, FWC and the Ding Darling Wildlife Society. Everyone can help prevent these types of injuries to wildlife, said Dr. Heather Barron, CROWs medical director. If you are out enjoying nature and see fishing tackle that has been improperly discarded, pick it up and dispose of it properly in one of the many monofilament recycling bins located throughout Sanibel and Captiva. In the brown pelicans case, the hooks and line were carefully removed using wire cutters upon the birds intake. The wounds from the hooks were cleaned and bandaged. After about two weeks of care to ensure the wounds had properly healed, the pelican was able to be released. In 2017, the rehabilitation hospital admitted 65 patients that arrived with fishing hooks or monofilament line entanglement. From January 1 through June 2018, there have been 60 patients admitted with hook and/or line entanglements. If you are interested in getting involved in helping these creatures in their state of flux, visit www.clearyourgear.org for the dos and donts of unhooking a bird, monofilament cleanups, bin locations, data collections and public outreach and education.

Florida is home to 46 species of native snakes, only six of which are venomous. Although there is a widespread fear and misunderstanding of this animal, most species are harmless to humans and form vital links in the ecosystem. Snakes are extremely valuable because they are efficient at monitoring pest populations without relying on chemical pesticides which can degrade the environment and harm other animal species. One of CROWs animal ambassadors will be present. Wednesday, July 18, 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., $25 per person, advance registration required Wildlife Walk with Rehabilitators and Staff (hospital tour). Wildlife Walks are approximately 1.5 hours: a 45-minute presentation with a 45-minute tour. Not recommended for children under the age of 13. Photography opportunity following the tour with an animal ambassador. Wednesday, July 18, 11 a.m., adults $12, ages 4 to 12 $7, age 3 and under no charge Wildlife Rescue 101 (daily presentation). Have you ever come across wildlife in distress but did not know the appropriate steps to help? Florida is home to more than 700 terrestrial animals and other invertebrates, and they all depend on sustainable recreational practices to survive. From posturing to vocalizations, animals communicate in a variety of ways and, at times, indicate their need for human assistance. Whether it is deterring visitors from feeding birds on the beach or detaching a pelican from fishing line in the mangroves, this program will cover wildlife rescue assessment as well as handling techniques. Thursday, July 19, 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., $25 per person, advance registration required Wildlife Walk with Rehabilitators and Staff (hospital tour). Wildlife Walks are approximately 1.5 hours: a 45-minute presentation with a 45-minute tour. Not recommended for children under the age of 13. Photography opportunity following the tour with an animal ambassador. Thursday, July 19, 11 a.m., adults $12, ages 4 to 12 $7, age 3 and under no charge Patient Profiles: Virginia Opossums (daily presentation). Virginia opossums are the only marsupial, or pouched mammal, native to the United States. They are highly adaptable animals and can live in a variety of habitats, both natural and human made. Although it may not be obvious to some people, opossums are a unique member of Floridas wildlife, playing an important role in the function of a healthy ecosystem. One of CROWs animal ambassadors will be present. From page 4Resurfacingwill be done during normal daytime hours. Access to residences and businesses will be maintained at all times.

Dr. Barron, CROWs hospital director and head veterinarian since 2011, received her training in exotic and wild animal medicine and surgery through a residency at the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine, where she later became a tenured associate professor on the Zoological Medicine Service. My new title allows me to refocus my efforts towards conservation, research and growth, said Dr. Barron. I want to strengthen our current partnerships like we have with the City of Sanibel, Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) and the Sanibel Sea School and continue our other collaborations with the University of Georgia and University of California-Davis. It will be interesting to see where were going next. Additionally, Dr. Barron hopes that CROW will continue working on having research papers published in peer scientific journals, along with writing more scientific grants. Ill still be in the hospital and still training our interns, she added. That way Ill be able to answer any questions and add one more mind while looking at any problems. Dr. Bast, who recently completed a one-year internship in wildlife and conservation medicine at CROW, previously worked at the Florida Veterinary Referral Center in Estero, where she practiced internal medicine, emergency medicine and performed surgery. The Allentown, Pennsylvania native graduated from the University of Florida with a doctorate in veterinary medicine. Ive been in Florida for the past eight years, and Ive been through all of the student internships here at CROW, said Dr. Bast, who initially came to the wildlife clinic on an externship in 2009. I love the fact that this is a teaching hospital, so were not just dealing with patient issues. I also like that we keep up on whats the latest in conservation medicine. In addition to the two staff promotions, CROW has added a new certified veterinary technician to its team. Amber Strassler, who was a student intern at CROW three years ago, recently joined the hospitals nine other full-time staff members. Her job duties will include checking on intensive care patients, feeding wild babies under CROWs care and administering medicine. Dr. Bast added that she is very happy to have earned the opportunity to be appointed staff veterinarian. It will be great continuing to work with Dr. Barron, whos been my mentor for the past seven years, she said with a smile. Every day here is so different. And working with our interns is wonderful, too. Not only are we teaching them, but they teach us new things.

Not only is sizing important, but the material paddles are made of is very different. Lets first recognize that in the early stages of your paddling experience, the only really important thing is that you are using the right size paddle for your body. Paddle sizing will not be addressed in this article, but most paddling professionals can help you select the appropriate length of paddle. Most entry-level paddles are made of a fiberglass shaft and some plastic polymer for the paddle blade, but some substitute aluminum for the fiberglass shaft. Today, we are talking about your second paddle. Once you become more serious about paddling, and have some experience under your belt, you will find that your experience is enhanced with a better paddle. When you feel like your skills have moved beyond your entry-level gear, investment in a paddle probably makes more sense than buying a new board or boat. It is cheaper, and a good paddle will last for years. For more advanced paddlers, a consistent question is carbon fiber or fiberglass? Carbon fiber is much lighter than fiberglass and much more expensive. Lighter means that we spend less energy holding and moving the paddle, and over a long paddle, that can add up. But more importantly, carbon fiber bends less than fiberglass, so more of your effort translates into movement of the craft, rather than bending the paddle shaft. Recall that one of our goals as paddlers is to maintain efficiency of paddle strokes. To make every stroke count, the rigidity of the paddle shaft makes a big difference. To those who may have injuries or chronic (especially shoulder) issues, a potential downside to carbon fiber is its rigidity. Some people may need the paddle to absorb some energy to protect sensitive shoulder joints, but for most of us, we can use the rigidity of carbon to get more board or boat movement per paddle stroke. Unless you know you have shoulder issues, our suggestion is to move to a good carbon fiber paddle. You will be amazed by how much it improves your time on the water. Ocean Tribe Paddlers is a club that helps the Southwest Florida paddling community better explore, enjoy and understand the ocean.

Featured Speaker Announced For Wine DinnerBen McClure, a certified wine specialist and brand ambassador of Talbott Vineyards, will be the featured speaker at the Islander Wine Dinner on Tuesday, July 31 beginning at 6 p.m. at The Community House. McClure will lead a dining experience and enlighten guests on the rules for food and wine pairing and discuss the wines as they relate to the vineyard, winemaker and brand. The first rule of food and wine pairing is, Any wine with food is better than no wine with food, said McClure. McClure is sitting for his certified sommelier exam this fall. McClure moved to California from his native Florida six years ago to pursue his passion for wine and hospitality. He first fell in love with wine while studying abroad in the south of France where his host family made their own wine in small batches for friends and family. After finishing his undergraduate degrees in French and international relations from the University of Florida, McClure moved to New York City to pursue a masters degree in humanities at NYU. While putting himself through school, McClure worked in hospitality at the Hotel Gansevoort in the trendy Meatpacking District, often recommending his favorite wines to the guests and celebrities that frequented the property. After completing his degree, he returned home to Florida to become a French professor at Flagler College, a small liberal arts school in St. Augustine.

It is used in sweet dishes as well as savory dishes, and all parts of the plant are edible, even the seeds and the pollen. This delicious vegetable is commonly used in commercial kitchens and completely underutilized by home cooks. Fennel is a member of the Umbellifereae family and related to parsley, carrots, cilantro, dill and celery. It has the same texture as celery and a unique flavor, similar to licorice and anise. In fact, fennel is an ingredient in many licorice flavored sweets and beverages including absinthe. Fennel was originally cultivated in the Mediterranean regions of Europe, where it grows wild. It was grown for medicinal and culinary purposes. Fennel is widely grown around the world, with the United States, Western Europe and Russia being the leading producers. The ancient Greeks called fennel marathon and grew it in a field where a great battle was fought. The battle was subsequently named The Battle of Marathon after the plant. Greek myths also say that Dionysus, the god of food and wine, delivered knowledge to man in fennel stalks filled with coal. Fennel contains powerful antioxidants and is an excellent source of vitamin C. It is also a very good source of dietary fiber, potassium, molybdenum, manganese, copper, phosphorus and folate. In addition, fennel is a good source of calcium, pantothenic acid, magnesium, iron and niacin. Fennel also contains, selenium, zinc, choline, beta-carotene, lutein, vitamin E and vitamin K. If you have never used fennel, here is a simple recipe to try. Arugula Fennel and Pinenut Salad Serves 4 Ingredients 8 ozs. baby arugula 2 small fennel bulbs (cored and sliced thin) 20 cherry tomatoes (cut in half) 4 ozs. parmesan cheese (shredded) 2 ozs. pinenuts (toasted) dressing cup white balsamic vinegar cup olive oil Zest and juice of 1 lemon 3 tbsp. honey Method Arrange the arugula on a platter. Place the remaining ingredients on top of the arugula. Place the vinegar, olive oil, lemon and honey in a bowl and whisk. Pour over the salad and serve.

The library will be closed for approximately three weeks, effective July 9, due to utility work and to relocate library materials. There will not be overdue fines assessed for materials returned late during this time. The book drop is located outside of the building to allow patrons to return DVDs, magazines, books and any other library material. The librarys eShelf for eBooks and downloadable audiobooks, movies, music and magazines will be available even when the library is closed. For printing, fax and notary services on the island, patrons can contact SanCap Pak-n-Ship or Qwik Pack & Ship. The Sanibel & Captiva Islands Chamber of Commerce website has a list of locations with public WiFi, including the Captiva Memorial Library. The Summer Reading program runs through August 3, with special events for children ages baby to teen. Check the schedule online at www.sanlib. org for dates and times. The Summer Reading Program is funded in part by a grant from the Sanibel Public Library Foundations Joan Hunt Cory Childrens Fund. The fund was established in 2008 to honor longtime library volunteer and supporter Joan Hunt Cory, who was also a 20-year Sanibel resident. Planning for Your Library Reimagined renovation project started in 2015, when the library board and staff analyzed obsolete infrastructure in the now 25-year-old building. To respond to the ever-changing needs of users, the project includes rearranging the floor plan for greater service and more modular meeting space. The improvements include larger windows to maximize the natural light and views, four new study rooms, two computer labs with the fastest Internet available, a flexible Think Tank Maker Space, plus revised outdoor courtyard space. There will also be a new Archives Room with digitization capabilities for easier scanning of photographs. Much of the updates are behind the scenes with more efficient electrical, plumbing and technical systems, which will also lower operating costs.

The waves Carry smooth shells away From the soft sand Like silent cats slipping into the night. Not another soul in sight, As the crystal waves Lap at my feet, Clear hills of cold salty water Before slipping back to the ocean. The waves Sing their song As one sheet of white foam and Blue water. A songbirds cry stains the silent sky And no other sound is too be heard but the bird. And the Waves Hannah Star Rogers holds an MFA from Columbia University and a PhD from Cornell University.

SUN Book ReviewThe Fallenby Di SaggauAmos Decker, one of our favorite characters, is back again in David Baldaccis The Fallen This time Amos and his FBI colleague Alex Jamison go on vacation to a small town in western Pennsylvania, named Baronville, to visit Alexs family. Its a town where almost everything has the name Baron in it and for good reason. Years ago, the Barons pretty much kept the town going as far as jobs and industry were concerned. Today, Baronville is one of the last places anyone would want to live, and the name Baron is not said lovingly. Shortly after Amos and Alex arrive in the Rust Belt town, four bizarre murders take place in two weeks. Amos, with his special abilities, especially his memory, gets heavily involved in solving whats going on in the town. The economy is crumbling in the former mill and mining town, and opioid addiction is rampant. The more he investigates, the stranger things he comes across. There are many secrets, and there are people who will do whatever it takes to keep them from coming to the surface. Its all about drugs and greed and murder. There are lots of interesting characters, and we dont really know who the bad guys are until Amos starts to put the pieces together. I especially liked John Baron IV, the last living survivor of the family that literally created the town. He is scorned and despised by the townsfolk for no reason other than his name. He has a sense of humor and uses witty one-liners even to the angry and vengeful population. Johns parents drowned in a pond on the property when they were in their 40s. Even this mystery is solved by the books end. There are many storylines in the book, but its easy to keep them separate and then find out how they all fit together. Baldacci has done his research on huge fulfillment centers where millions of packages are shipped daily. A new facility in Baronville employs 1,000 people and plays a huge part in the plot. When one murder hits close to home, affecting the lives of people he cares about, Amos begins to realize that the recent string of deaths may be only one small piece of a much larger scheme that reaches far beyond Baronville. The Fallen is definitely among Baldaccis best. School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My child will be going to kindergarten in August. I am just not sure that he is ready to go. We have the option of going to a great daycare for another year. What are some things I should look for so that I am sure that he will do well in kindergarten. Elizabeth G, Fort Myers Beach Elizabeth, You are facing a difficult decision about enrolling your child in kindergarten when you still have some doubts about his readiness. Although your child has now reached the age when he is allowed to begin school, it is important to be assured that your child is cognitively and emotionally ready to start kindergarten. Listed below are a few helpful hints from the Virginia Academy of School Psychologists to help you assess your childs general developmental level and readiness for this big step. Cognitive skills Child is able to use five to eight words in a sentence Knows basic colors like green, yellow, red, blue, orange Child is able to memorize address and phone number Identifies some letters of the alphabet and a few numbers (if taught) Child is able to count up to 10 objects Language skills Child is able to say both first and last names Child is able to follow a two-step simple direction Child is able to ask and answer questions correctly Child is able to take turns when talking with others Speaks fluently and correctly using plurals, pronouns and tenses Gross motor skills Child runs in a controlled manner, able to start, stop and turn Able to walk on tiptoes Has experience with jumping, skipping, hopping and swinging Uses a fork and knife well Can throw and catch a bounced ball Fine motor skills May be able to copy simple shapes and designs Able to cut with scissors Child has hand preference established Child is able to dress self with little assistance Social/emotional skills Child organizes other children and toys for pretend play, but may confuse fantasy and reality at times Is able to distinguish right from wrong Can take turns and share, but doesnt always want to Child may want to do things on his or her own, but still has fears of things like loud noises, the dark, animals and some people Child is starting to name feelings, but may still act them out Remember that each child grows at his/her own pace. Therefore, the information in this section is based on what the average kindergarten child is able to do. You know your child best. If you feel that your child may have some delays in his development, it is important to speak to your childs pediatrician or school personnel about your concerns. Shelley Greggs is adjunct faculty at Florida SouthWestern State College, where she teaches psychology and education courses. She is also a nationally certified school psychologist and consultant for School Consultation Services, a private educational consulting company.

Mobile Mollusk Display Visits Childrens Hospitalby Jeff LysiakLast week at Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida in Fort Myers, two representatives from the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum on Sanibel spent the morning visiting with young patients and sharing their knowledge of shells via the Mollusks on the Move program. Leigh Gay, the museums outreach coordinator, and Shell Ambassador Kelle Covington, brought four different species of live shells including a pair of lettered olives, a sharks eye, two fighting conchs and a Florida horse conch to show the young patients staying at the hospital. Most of the kids are amazed that theyre real, said Gay, who was conducting her fourth presentation for patients at the hospital on July 3. All of the kids know what seashells are, but theyve never seen them alive. But once they see them moving around, they start asking great questions. Developed last year with a mission of connecting local children with the natural world through their love of seashells, the Mollusks on the Move program has reached more than 3,000 students in Lee, Collier, Hendry and Sarasota counties at schools, county parks, camps and community gatherings. During last weeks presentation, Gay opened each container containing the live shells. She told the youngsters about how they move, what they eat and where their various body parts including their eyes, nose and feet are located. I just try to make them laugh, so Ill say a lot of silly stuff, added Gay. If theyre laughing, maybe theyll forget for a minute that theyre in the hospital. In partnering with the BaileyMatthews National Shell Museum, Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida is helping support a platform aimed at educating kids. This mobile program keeps children close to home and connects them to our environment in an exciting and innovative way, said Armando Llechu, hospital chief administrative officer. We are certain the program will pique interest, inspire curiosity and creativity, and enrich the lives of children throughout Southwest Florida. During the demonstration, young patients are brought to the hospitals first floor community room, where Gay and Covington have arranged the mobile touch tanks filled with live mollusks. As the kids looked at the shells, a number of onlookers including doctors, nurses and other hospital staff stood nearby, watching continued on page 32 Leigh Gay showing a fighting conch to patient Candace Boone, 11 photos by Jeff Lysiak Leigh Gay sharing information about mollusks with 7-year-old patient Brianna Merced

Taking Charge Of Your Financial Health ProgramFISH of SanCap, along with Fifth Third Bank, is offering a community presentation, entitled Taking Charge of Your Financial Health, on Wednesday, July 18 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Sanibel Community Church. This workshop will help individuals and families learn how to do basic budgeting, slash their debt and boost their credit score. Kathy Y. Monroe, FISH facilitator and program director, said, This session will attempt to help individuals develop a plan for budgeting and saving which can lead to boosting their credit score, while helping to eliminate debt. Financial health is just as important as physical health, because lacking the first can have an impact on the latter. The presenter, Ruben Perales, financial relationship manager from Fifth Third Bank, will introduce this information in an interesting and interactive manner. Participants will leave the session knowing how to create a budget, interpret a credit score and manage debt. This seminar is open to the community and snacks will be provided. To RSVP, contact Kathy Y. Monroe at 472-4775. For more information, visit www.fishofsancap.org.

ISLAND SUN JULY 13, 201832 From page 27Mobile Molluskthe presentation with equal curiosity. Holding a larger example of a fighting conch, which did not contain a live mollusk, Gay asked the children if they had ever held a shell up to their ear in order to hear the ocean. When youre listening to a shell, youre actually hearing the sounds made by your own body, from inside your ear, she explained to the group of three patients, allowing them to place their ears near the giant shell. I think thats even cooler than saying you can hear the ocean! The Mollusks on the Move program, funding in part with grants provided by Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida, LCEC and the West Coast Inland Navigation District, represents hands-on science at its best and inspires all ages to learn more about the natural environment.

Rotary Happeningssubmitted by Shirley JewellOn June 30, our Rotary year 2017-18 closed and on July 1, our Rotary year 2018-19 began. Amazing how time flies. It was a great year for Sanibel-Captiva Rotary; hugs and thanks to our outgoing president, Holli Martin. Now the club is looking forward to another great year under the leadership of our new president, John Danner. It was only fitting that at our last meeting with Martin as club president, we dedicated the meeting to her favorite program highlighting Rotarians and learning more about their professional careers and their pathway to those professions. But I have to stop here and make a confession. Martin was not at this meeting. She was having fun, I hope, on a much-needed vacation. Danner was manning the gavel and absolutely kept things moving so we could end the meeting on time. Rotarian Bill Letendre, consultant pharmacist, original Rotary Club member from Derry, New Hampshire in 1975, joined Sanibel-Captiva Rotary in 1984. He was president of SanibelCaptiva Rotary from 1987-88, moved to Texas and didnt return to Sanibel until 2017 and was reinstated as a Sanibel-Captiva Rotarian in 2017. Letendres career as a pharmacist and business entrepreneur provided him with ventures in the both the pharmaceutical business and real estate development. It wasnt long after graduating from the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy in 1970 that he bought his first pharmacy at the young age of 26. That first purchase was only the beginning. He went on to own a dozen pharmacies, infusion pharmacies and invested in successful commercial real estate projects with focus on medical office space in New Hampshire. In 1984, Letendre was ready for a change, sold his pharmacy businesses and moved his family to Sanibel. He thought he was retiring. Well, as the saying goes, you cant keep a good man down. Once again, he saw an opportunity to get into the real estate business both on Sanibel and off island in Fort Myers. Commercial real estate development was his forte but Letendre also saw an opportunity to jump into the residential real estate market and bought 28 acres of property along Winkler Road in Fort Myers and developed the area called King LearWinkler Estates. Letendre and a partner also developed Summerlin Square and built a walk-in clinic on this property. In his business portfolio, Letendre had walk-in medical and dental clinics and health clubs both in Florida and back in New Hampshire. There was a lot going on for Letendre at this time, but once again, the wind changed direction and he was drawn to a new opportunity in Texas. The opportunity was to join the Professional Compounding Centers of America (PCCA), the leading supplier of pharmaceuticals compounding medicines and education, and consulting for independent pharmacies. The traditional role of compounding pharmacies is to make drugs prescribed by doctors for specific patients, humans and animals, with needs that cant be met by commercially available pharmacies. PCCA serves approximately 4,000 independent community pharmacists throughout the United States, Canada, Australia and other countries around the world. So, in 1992, he and his family moved to Sugar Land, Texas. Somehow, he also made time to go back to school at the University of Texas College of Pharmacy and receive his masters of business administration from the University of Phoenix in 1998. Letendre works on the management mentoring side of the business, personalizing solutions for good business and practical decision making. He serves as vice president of PCCA and is in his 14th year of management coaching for the company. But in 2016-17, he took the opportunity to move, once again, to Sanibel. He thought he might be slowing down on the business side, or was he? Letendre and his family wife, Lise and son, Geoffrey and his wife, Flavia invested in the Blue Giraffe Restaurant on Sanibel in 2016. Geoffrey moved off Sanibel for a good number of years too but has always considered himself a hometown boy. His passion was always in the kitchen. He is a graduate of California Culinary Academy and has served in well-known restaurant kitchens across the country. When his dad called him to join him in this new business venture running the Blue Giraffe, Geoffrey was all in. Letendre rejoined Sanibel-Captiva Rotary in 2017 and were glad to have him back. I will be playing catch up with our Rotary Happenings column for the next few weeks, just too much to write about. You can look forward to another classification post on Rotarian Clark Rambo and news from the top on the Rotary International motto for 2018-19: Be The Inspiration. Sanibel-Captiva Rotary President John Danner also outlined our club goals for this year and I will write about them in upcoming articles. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets Friday mornings at 7 a.m. at The Dunes Golf & Tennis Club. Guests are welcome.

The Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum acted as the site facilitator for the Sanibel Causeway beaches portion of the cleanup. Volunteers from throughout the county met museum staff bright and early, and successfully collected 85 pounds of garbage. Its important to keep public beaches clean, said Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum Executive Director Dorrie Hipschman. We need to eliminate plastic and trash in the ocean, and that starts at the beach. Some of the most common items picked up by the team were bottle caps, cigarette butts and plastic packaging, along with 10 pairs of shoes. But all in all, the participants were pleased with how little garbage was left on the beach the public did an excellent job picking up after themselves. Several thousand people were out enjoying these beaches on July 4 and more than five pickup trucks of garbage ended up in the proper receptacles, which was disposed of by county employees. Thanks to Keep Lee County Beautiful for organizing the event and supplying bags, gloves and water, and thanks to all the participants for coming out to help.

ISLAND SUN JULY 13, 201834 Clients frequently ask whether one should transfer title to their automobile into their revocable living trust. This is a loaded question, as it depends. If the client is a Florida resident and doesnt own more than two automobiles, then Florida law exempts those two automobiles from probate. For Florida law to apply, however, the automobiles must be registered in Florida. Whomever you named in your will to receive the automobiles specifically, or the tangible personal property more generally, will be entitled to the cars. To transfer the automobiles, the beneficiary needs to take a copy of the will with a certified copy of the death certificate to the tax collectors office, along with the title. If the title is electronic, there are additional forms to complete. Automobiles registered in other states, however, would be subject to the law of registration in the state of registration. In those states, a probate court order may be necessary to transfer title. Coincidentally, the proper forum for the probate would be Florida if the owner was a Florida resident at the time of his death. Presume, for example, that Andy owned two automobiles, a Volvo sedan and a Buick. The Volvo he kept at his residence on Captiva, with Florida tags and title. The Buick he kept in Ohio, with tags and registration there. Both cars were held in Andys name individually. Upon Andys death, the Florida automobile is exempt, but if Ohio requires a probate to transfer title, then a Florida probate would have to be opened before title to the Buick could be transferred to its rightful beneficiary. This begs the question: if Andy created a revocable living trust, should he then transfer the Buicks title to his trust? I would suggest that the answer is no. Assume that Andy was in a terrible accident that was his fault. His automobile coverage is limited to $300,000 under the terms of his policy. If a plaintiffs attorney sees Andys name on the title, he may not jump to certain assumptions about Andys wealth than if the automobile is owned in trust. This, of course, begs another question as to whether a revocable trust protects Andys assets from his creditors. It does not. A revocable trust is simply another form of ownership. Andy has complete control over the trust. He is the grantor, trustee and beneficiary. He can freely contribute assets to the trust and remove them from the trust. The trust can use his social security number as the taxpayer identification number. Consequently, a judgment creditor can attack the trust assets. One solution that I recommend to nearly all my clients with any degree of net worth is to carry an umbrella liability policy. An umbrella policy is not terribly expensive and can serve to protect you beyond the scope of what your homeowners, automobile and boat policies might cover. Be sure to discuss what your other policy limits must be with your carrier when you do purchase an umbrella policy. For liability purposes, I also rarely suggest that married clients own automobile titles jointly. If Andy is married to Denise and they own automobiles jointly, then any accident could jeopardize their jointly held assets. While a jointly owned automobile would avoid probate, remember, that if you have Florida title, probate wont usually be necessary. I normally recommend to my married clients that each spouse own the automobile that he or she drives most often. So, theres a lot more to owning automobiles that meets the eye. Be sure to always consult with your legal counsel as well as with your liability carrier before deciding whats right for you and your family. Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at www.sbshlaw.com.

35 ISLAND SUN JULY 13, 2018 Superior InteriorsLight Up Your Lifeby Marcia FeeneyProper lighting plays such an important part in the success of any design plan. I find that few of my clients truly think about the impact that lighting can have on the successful completion of their design project. Dining room chandeliers can be the design inspiration for the room itself. Here are a couple of rules to ensure your chandelier is properly hung in your dining room. First rule is that the entire chandelier should be no wider than 12 inches less than the width of the table. Second, the bottom of the chandelier should be no lower than 30 inches above the tabletop, in a room with an 8-foot ceiling. Finally, if your ceiling is higher than that, raise the fixture three inches higher for each additional foot of ceiling height. How about a chandelier placed in the master bath or powder room for that matter. A dramatic fixture adds another element of texture and drama in a bath setting. Now lets talk a bit about bedroom lighting and specifically task lighting. Matching lamps flanking the bed should be positioned at a proper height for evening reading. An advantage of lamps positioned in this manner provides an effect of washing the walls with even lighting, which can make a room appear larger. The play of light can enhance a beautifully designed living room. Place a swivel, task lamp between two side chairs. They are beautiful and practical and are not obtrusive to an overall design plan and furniture arrangement in a room. Table lamps are available in any size to balance the height of different end tables, providing just the right amount of task lighting to each side of a sofa. Recessed accent lighting is another excellent way to draw the eye up and add extra height to a room. A carefully integrated lighting plan can make a beautiful difference. Kitchen lighting requires careful planning, because there are so many options to consider. Pendant light is used to light areas such as a kitchen island. One option is three pendant lights designed to illuminate the island and the ceiling as well. The addition of a drum pendant light hung over the dinette table could make a design statement as well as providing illumination. Id really like to urge you to consider updating your lighting fixtures because they can help you dramatically change the way your home looks without a tremendous investment. And remember, you can make a room seem larger by washing its walls with even lighting, and conversely you can make a larger room feel smaller and cozier by lighting just a few areas with pools of light.

Its A Great Weekend Of Mens And Womens Senior Golfby Ed FrankLocal fans of senior golf and theres tens of thousands in our area should relish this weekend as both the Senior Players Championship and the inaugural U.S. Senior Womens Open will be held this weekend on two iconic golf courses in the Chicago area. The worlds top 50 senior players will compete at the historic Exmoor Country Club, founded in 1896, and the whos who of women golfers of yesteryear will tee it up at Chicago Golf Club, the ultra-exclusive course that is compared to Augusta National, home of the Masters. Senior championship golf in our area has been a proven success for more than 30 years as the Chubb Classic has been held here each February for 31 years, the longest running Champions Tour tournament in the same metropolitan area. Interestingly, one of the favorites this weekend at the Senior Players Championship is ageless Bernhard Langer who, since turning 50, has 37 Champions Tour Victories, including three Chubb Classic wins here in 2011, 2013 and 2016. Langers 37 titles on the 50-and-over tour are second only to Hale Irwins 45. Age certainly has not slowed Langer down as the 61-year-old German is third in earnings this year on the Champions Tour, pocketing $1,076,000. He has seven top 10 finishes, one win and made the cut in 13 of 14 tournaments. The two-time Masters champion has 111 worldwide titles. Langer has been a popular figure here and will carry a favorites role this weekend in Chicago. The four-day tournament, with a $2.8 million purse, will be televised live on the Golf Channel. Now to the inaugural Womens Senior Open: Tournament Chairman Jack Gleason said the event was created for the love of the game. And what a coup to land the first event at the Chicago Golf Club strictly a club for golf with no tennis courts, swimming pool and even the lack of air conditioning in the clubhouse. But the 114-year-old club will host 120 senior professional women golfers headed by Hall of Famer Pat Bradley. Here is a sampling of former U.S. Open Womens Champions who will compete this weekend Laura Davies, Jane Geddes, Betsy King, Amy Alcot, Liselotte Neuman, Patty Sheehan, Hollis Stacy, Jan Stephenson, JoAnne Gunderson, Juli Inkster and Alison Nicholas. Two of the sentimental golfers this weekend are the 67-year-old Bradley and Inkster. Bradley is a World Golf Hall of Fame member with 36 professional wins. Inkster remains a competitor on the LPGA. This inaugural event carries a $1 million purse. It will be televised live on Fox Sports 1. It will be a great weekend of mens and womens senior golf. Miracle Slip Into Third Place With a 3-7 record in July through Monday of this week, the Fort Myers Miracle slipped to third place in the Florida State League South Division, but just one game behind first-place Charlotte. The Miracle is on the road this weekend at Lakeland, returning home to Hammond Stadium Monday for a six-game home stand against St. Lucie and Lakeland. The Minnesota Twins Miquel Sano continues to work on his batting here with the Miracle recording a .315 average in 15 games with seven RBIs. SUN ISLAND SUN JULY 13, 201836 SPORTS QUIZ 1.

Gonzalez, MDs last book, entitled Nutrition and the Autonomic Nervous System: The Scientific Foundations of The Gonzalez Protocol is the recipient of the 2018 Book Excellence Award, a global celebration of literary excellence. Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez and his wife, Mary Beth Gonzalez, owned a home on Sanibel Island since 2010. Dr. Gonzalez died unexpectedly in July 2015. He was an immunologist and the developer of The Gonzalez Protocol for the treatment of cancer and other degenerative diseases. In his groundbreaking book, Dr. Gonzalez explains the importance of nutrition in maintaining and restoring the autonomic nervous system balance that is so crucial to good health. He describes how individual variation in nervous system function means that different individuals require different types of diets (ranging from largely raw food and vegetarian to diets high in fatty red meat, and every variation in between) in order to achieve good health. Drawing upon more than 25 years of private practice in New York City, and prior research by Drs. Pottenger, Gellhorn and Kelley, he also explains why nutritional supplementation protocols similarly need to be individualized for optimal autonomic nervous system function. Dr. Gonzalezs book won this prestigious award in the category of Diet & Nutrition. While this book is not a how-to manual for self-treatment, reading it will help you better understand how to maintain or improve your own health. If you are a health professional, it will better assist your patients to remain healthy or recover from illness without potentially harmful medications. New Spring Press Publisher Mary Beth Gonzalez said, This book might have never come to life if I hadnt stumbled across the manuscript in my husbands computer after his death. For Nick to posthumously receive the 2018 Book Excellence Award is a dream come true as so many more people will now be aware of the importance of proper nutrition in treating disease. Literary Excellence Incorporated, founder and sponsor of the Book Excellence Awards, announced the 2018 winners on July 1. The Book Excellence Awards is an international book awards competition dedicated to providing authors and publishers with the opportunity to showcase their books on a global platform. Awardwinning titles were chosen based on their design, layout, writing quality and overall market appeal. A Sanibel-based publishing company, New Spring Press publishes scientific books and videos in the fields of health and nutrition and their impact on disease. It is the exclusive publisher of the scientific work of Nicholas J. Gonzalez, MD and Dr. John Beard, the British scientist who pioneered the therapeutic uses of pancreatic enzymes.

Revitalize can suggest making someone or something active, healthy or energetic again. It can also impart new life or vigor as well as restore something to a dynamic or fresh condition. Why is this word so essential for us to include in our daily lives? Because so often we get stuck in a rut doing the same things over and over again, from our daily work routines to our daily home routines and everything in between. What tends to happen is that we get bored or we start to take certain things for granted, and we forget to appreciate the things that really matter the most. So how is it that we can learn to revitalize our lives regularly enough so to avoid the burnout that comes with doing the same thing over and over, as well as continue to keep all aspects of our lives fresh and thriving? I have come up with a few suggestions for you in the various aspects of life in hopes that this list will trigger some additional creative thoughts of your own. Emotional take a mental break away from technology and try to disconnect a bit more at certain times during the day and during the week to revitalize your spirit and your thoughts. Being too connected and too available at all times can create mental burnout. A great way to forget it all and let go is to get a relaxing massage or a spa treatment. A great way to revitalize and lift your spirits is to get a new hairstyle or learn a new way to do your makeup. Physical take a group fitness class or work on a fitness routine that gives you a new sense of desire to workout. Subscribe to an online course that is out of the box and different than what you are used to doing, and select the best time of day to incorporate this into your life. Just changing things up a bit helps to make working out and staying physically fit actually fun versus a chore that needs to be done. Spiritual read a good book, pray, listen to an inspiring podcast, take the time to go to church and even watch a service live if you cant get to the one you want to visit. There is no better way to revitalize your spirit than to listen to a gifted teacher or inspirational leader. Bring affirmations into your life so you continue to motivate and inspire yourself every day. Environmental this one can be lots of fun by digging up your creative juices to make things fresh and new again. Paint a room, buy some new home accessories, bedding or even a new piece of art. Add something new to your landscaping like a plant, tree or flowers, and change your view both inside and out. Get involved with a local organization that protects your environment, learn more about them and contribute to the cause. Social I love this one because it really is easy to let relationships go in terms of spicing things up and keeping them fresh and fun. Consider buying flowers, cards or even just a small gift of some kind for those your love to show your appreciation. Send an ecard or create an event with a friend or loved one that is out of the box, like a picnic, quick getaway or just an unexpected day of relaxation and rejuvenation at a spa. Join a new group of like-minded individuals to meet new people and create some new, fresh friendships. Any of these ideas and even some of your own will help keep your progress moving fast forward in having your most balanced and beautiful life. Keeping things fresh and revitalized will ensure that all you have worked for in life continues to thrive. My affirmation for you this week is: I am exploring new ways to revitalize my life to keep things fresh, fun and flourishing.

HerschFlorida Bar Board Certi ed Wills, Trusts & Estates Attorney, CPA SELECTING YOUR TRUSTEE online resources Doctor and DieticianTips To Decrease Sugar Intakeby Ross Hauser, MD and Marion Hauser, MS, RDDecreasing sugar consumption is a large part of healthy eating. Diets high in processed sugar stimulate the brains dopamine pathway, the pleasure-sensing area of the brain. The brain responds by wanting more and more, resulting in an ongoing struggle with sugar cravings and overeating While there are obvious sugary foods like cookies and candy, all types of prepared foods can be high in fructose, sucrose and corn syrup, alternative names for sugar commonly found on ingredient lists. Even deli or pre-made perishable foods can contain hidden sugars. For example, some brands of premade coleslaw have 13 grams of sugar per half-cup. Instead, you can easily make coleslaw at home and leave out the added sugar. Cooking at home using fresh, whole foods is the best way to avoid excessive sugar and calories. Natural sugar, like that found in fruit, is better for you than added, refined sugar. But be careful with fruit juice. Even as a natural sugar source, a 12-ounce serving of apple juice still contains 38 grams of sugar. Instead, try adding a splash of fruit juice to sparkling water, or just eat an apple. Same with coffee drinks. Instead of a mocha frappuccino, have a regular coffee and a square of dark chocolate. Youll decrease the sugar and calories, but still get a chocolate and caffeine fix. Aspire to cook from scratch. By cooking with different proteins, carbohydrates, good fats, herbs and spices, a variety of tastes can be experienced. In fact, once people begin to experience tastes other than sweetness, they can retrain their brains to enjoy a variety of tastes: salty, sour, bitter, savory, spicy and sweet. Retraining the brain can be challenging at first, considering how bombarded we are with sugary foods. But it is a battle worth fighting for your health!

SUN deaRPharmacistNine Quick Hacks For Leg Crampsby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Readers:Some of you have to jump out of bed really fast to mitigate a leg cramp, usually in the back of the calf, or in your thigh. Leg cramps are not only painful, but they are a leading cause of fitful sleeping, insomnia and daytime fatigue. They speak to bigger problems too, such as dehydration, nutritional deficiencies and sometimes depression. This is because the root cause might be due to an imbalance in one of several key minerals like calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc or sodium. Today my article will help you deal more effectively with nocturnal leg cramps so you can sleep through the night and feel better during the day. Now, here are a few of the best hacks for leg cramps: Avoid sorbitol Theres an interesting case study about a 34-year old woman who put herself on a diet that consisted of low sorbitol (and low fructose). She essentially cured herself of long-standing leg cramps within a few weeks. Reduce aspirin and ibuprofen Many NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) are known to be drug muggers of natural folate. A deficiency of this B vitamin will produce chronic leg cramps. Take CoQ10 with your statin If you take a statin like lovastatin, atorvastatin or others, you should be taking CoQ10 or Ubiquinol every day. Avoid large doses of vitamin C If you take too much vitamin C, it can upset your stomach and cause diarrhea. Then youre faced with dehydration, and thats a trigger for leg cramps. Cut back on caffeine Caffeine is a diuretic, so it causes mild dehydration. You may have noticed that on days you drink a lot of coffee, or have several energy drinks, you have more leg cramps. Not only that, but the chlorogenic acid in coffee is a drug mugger for magnesium, iron and zinc. Drink coconut water This is a natural electrolyte, and I think its healthier for you than those strangely colored drinks that are loaded with sugar and artificial colors. Heat up a microwavable hot pack Heat one of these up, and its sweet relief on your sore muscles. You can heat it up right after you cramp, and apply it to ease the pain faster. Drink a little pickle juice This should not help, but it actually does. Its probably from the salt in the flavoring or from the vinegar. The salt would help with electrolyte balance, the vinegar might serve as a mild muscle relaxant. Try a massager The hand-held devices that provide percussion might bring instant relief. There are many at Brookstone, or on Amazon such as the Pure-Wave CM7 Cordless Massager. I have a much longer version of this article that I can send to you.

Program On Diabetes FISH of SanCap and Wendy Warner, RN, parish nurse at St. Michael & All Angels Episcopal Church are offering a presentation, titled Diabetes 101 on Tuesday, July 24 from 1 to 2 p.m. at the church. Warner will speak about the value of good nutrition, give examples of an appropriate daily meal plan, and discuss fingerstick blood sugars and A1Cs. FISH Facilitator and Program Director Kathy Y. Monroe said, During this session, a myth will be disputed. Diabetes does not come from eating sugar. It is the result of how your body processes insulin. It is a disease in which the bodys ability to produce or respond to insulin is impaired, resulting in abnormal metabolism of carbohydrates and elevated levels of glucose. This will be an opportunity for individuals interested in learning more about diabetes, or those with diabetes, to learn about new treatment options and possible new medications. Management of the disease can lead to a comfortable, quality lifestyle. This seminar is open to the community and lunch will be provided. To RSVP, contact Kathy Y. Monroe at 472-4775. 39 ISLAND SUN JULY 13, 2018 Got A Problem? Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: I have just gone through a major loss, and I keep asking myself what lessons came from this. Is this normal?A: As paradoxical as it may seem, when you open yourself to the pain that loss brings, you open yourself to joy. Life is difficult, loss is painful. Thats the problem. We dont want to go through the pain; it hurts. Yet, time and again, I have witnessed those in my therapy practice who allowed themselves to feel their loss and understand the necessity of it; those are the ones who worked through their pain and came out on the other side to find joy again. It is when one attempts to avoid pain by reaching outside the self and looking for something or someone to medicate them. Those people are doing just that, medicating their pain, thus not working through their loss and not finding the joy that they too could have. This comes with a high price, the running and avoiding turns out to be exhausting and debilitating, resulting in feelings of failure and loss of self, even contributing to illness and disease. As you go through the grief stages of loss and pain, know that you will come to acceptance. This takes time and there is no right or wrong way or time when this will happen. Working through loss is a very individual process. Something or someone important to you is no longer in your life. Remember that going through the grief process, as painful as it is, is healing. As you heal, you will begin to understand the lessons and, as you learn the lessons, healing continues to occur, thus joy returns.

CLASSIFIED CLASSIFIED www.islandsunnews.com PLACE CLASSIFIED ISLAND SUN JULY 13, 201846 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 47 ISLAND SUN JULY 13, 2018 My Stars FOR WEEK OF JULY 16, 2018Aries (March 21 to April 19) Your persistence pays off as the information you demanded starts to come through. The pace is slow at first, but it begins to speed up as the week draws to a close. Taurus (April 20 to May 20) An unwelcome bit of news jolts the Bovine, who would prefer that things proceed smoothly. But its at most a momentary setback. A Leo brings more welcome tidings. Gemini (May 21 to June 20) You need to pay close attention to the details before making a commitment. Dont accept anything that seems questionable, unless you get an answer that can be backed up. Cancer (June 21 to July 22) Congratulations on getting that project up and running. But as exciting as it is, dont let it carry you away. Make sure you set aside time to spend with family and friends. Leo (July 23 to August 22) Be sure you are part of the discussion involving your suggestions. Your presence ensures that you can defend your work, if necessary. It also helps gain your colleagues support. Virgo (August 23 to September 22) A misunderstanding needs to be dealt with, or it can grow and cause more problems later on. Be the bigger person and take the first step to clear the air. Libra (September 23 to October 22) Set some strict guidelines for yourself so your heavier-than-usual work schedule doesnt overwhelm the time you need to spend relaxing with loved ones. Scorpio (October 23 to November 21) You might feel a little uncomfortable being among people you hardly know. But remember that todays strangers can become tomorrows valuable contacts. Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21) Reward yourself for all that youve accomplished despite some annoying situations that got in your way. Enjoy a well-earned getaway with someone special. Capricorn (December 22 to January 19) Realizing that someone else is taking credit for what you did is bound to get anyones goat, but especially yours. Be patient. The truth soon comes out. Aquarius (January 20 to February 18) Forget about opposites attracting. What you need is to find someone who thinks like you and will support your ideas, even if others say theyre too radical. Pisces (February 19 to March 20) Workplace problems can affect your financial plans. Be prudent and avoid running up bills or making commitments until things begin to ease up by the 27th. Born This Week: Your intuition helps you communicate easily with people and understand their needs. It was pop art icon Andy Warhol who made the following sage observation: Its the movies that have really been running things in America since they were invented. They show you what to do, how to do it, when to do it, how to feel about it, and how to look when you feel about it. Those who study such things say that by the year 2020, more data will be created in a single hour than had been created in the entire world over the 30,000 years leading up to the 21st century. A woman in Tennessee was once arrested for biking while intoxicated she was on a stationary bike at the gym at the time. When the Coca-Cola Company first started marketing its product in China, the advertisements used Chinese symbols to spell out the brands name phonetically. It was only after the ads had been published that the marketers learned that those symbols spelled out the phrase bite the wax tadpole. Earthquakes occur at a rate of about one every minute around the world. About eight of those each year are considered to be major, registering above 7.0 on the Richter Scale. Velcro came to market in 1957, after a Swiss inventor named George De Mestral spent nearly 10 years developing the idea. His inspiration came to him in 1948 on a hike, when he had difficulty removing tenacious little burrs from his clothes. He reasoned that if he could create synthetic burrs, they could be used as fasteners. When Great Britains current Queen Elizabeth then Princess Elizabeth wed Prince Philip, their wedding cake weighed a whopping 500 pounds. I always find it more difficult to say the things I mean than the things I dont. W.
