Launched during the first week of July, the online campaign called A Safer Sanibel had raised nearly onethird of the $11,000 goal to purchase 10 automatic external defibrillator units. AEDs are small, portable machines that can monitor the hearts rhythm and send an electric shock to restore a normal rhythm when necessary. They are used to treat victims of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), which is when the heart suddenlycontinued on page 10 Emmett Horvath, marine science educator for Sanibel Sea School, holding the first aid kit from one of the schools trucks photo courtesy Sanibel Sea School Renovation continues on the new childrens areaby Jeff LysiakThe team known as Driving Miss Crazy captured this years Fourth of July Road Rally, the annual vehicular scavenger hunt sponsored by the SanibelCaptiva Optimist Club.

3 ISLAND SUN JULY 20, 2018 submitted by Richard FinkelThe latest No Child Left On Shore (NCLOS) environmental education outreach project introduced Fort Myers youth with the Quality Life Center (QLC) Summer Camp program to the coastal ecology of Southwest Florida on a multi-faceted water borne field trip. The NCLOS initiative is a collaborative endeavor of the SanibelCaptiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) and Captiva Cruises, which strives to provide the opportunity for the younger generation of Southwest Florida a means to gain a firsthand learning experience, and exposure to our coastal environment. The Quality Life Center, located in the Dunbar neighborhood of Fort Myers, strives to strengthen family and community through programs, services and the provision of housing and property management to ultimately cultivate self development, teach self discipline, build confidence and promote nutritional and cultural awareness. Describing the cruise experience, Todd Thomas of the Quality Life Center said, The kids really enjoyed it, some of them had never had the experience and a few of them emerged as potential scientists with their curiosity. The setting for learning could not have been better. The kids (and camp instructors) learned a lot about the Sanibel/Captiva, Pine Island Sound and Cayo Costa State Park area. SCCF and Captiva Cruises have been partners in many environmental education programs over the past 25 five years. For more information about the No Child Left On Shore environmental education outreach project, including sponsorship opportunities, contact SCCF at 472-2329 or Captiva Cruises at 472-5300.

MACKINNONMarcia T. MacKinnon died peacefully in her sleep at home, with family by her side, on Thursday, July 5, 2018. She was born on April 16, 1921 in Rye, New York, the daughter of John S. and Katharine C. Taber. Marcia was predeceased by her beloved husband, Ben MacKinnon, as well as her cherished grandson David P. MacKinnon and her sweet southern daughter-in-law Gloria O. Magruder. Marcia grew up in Rye, New York with her sisters Ann and Starr. She graduated from the Madeira School for Girls in McLean, Virginia and completed her college education at the University of Wisconsin, receiving her bachelor of arts in English. With her degree, she was able to obtain her teaching certificate. She and Ben were members of the greatest generation and were married after the onset of World War II. When he was deployed to a destroyer in the Pacific, she traveled by train across country with her young son Duncan to San Francisco, where she waited along with many other young wives for the return of their sailor husbands. After the war, in addition to being a full-time mother for her children Duncan, Marcy and John, she enjoyed a life rich with a myriad of artistic endeavors, from painting to beading, quilting, basket making and works with precious metal clay. Early in her married life, she authored several short stories. As a determined and competitive athlete, she competed wholeheartedly at tennis, badminton, and golf. Hiking up all the mountains in Acadia National Park was a testament to her vitality. Always setting the pace, family members called her the mountain goat. She was an ardent traveler as well, having taken trips to the Galapagos, France, Italy, the Greek Islands, and especially England where she often visited her great pals in Somerset, Chris and Shirley. Of her many talents and passions, one was designing and remodeling homes. She had an innate sense of space, and was able to create warm and welcoming homes in many parts of the country, including Barrington, Illinois, Sanibel and Southwest Harbor, Maine. Because she and Ben lived in such beautiful places and their homes were so comfortable, they entertained a seemingly endless stream of friends and relatives. Then there were her cats whom she adored as much as (or more than?) anything. Too numerous to name them all, they included her Siamese Poon, Fish and Mouse, plus Molly Bloom and Stokely, Hutu and Tutsi, and lastly Kibbles and Crunch, who were with her at the end. These cherished felines were an essential part of her life. She is survived by her sisters Ann Richards and Starr Taber, her three children Duncan P. MacKinnon (wife Jeanene), Marcy MacKinnon, and John S. MacKinnon (wife Kristi), her granddaughters Starr E. MacKinnon and Kylie K. MacKinnon, and her greatgrandsons Zayden P. MacKinnon and Lachlan S. MacKinnon. The family would like to extend their sincerest gratitude to her devoted caregivers, not only for their excellent care, but also for the genuine affection that they extended to Marcia, especially Colleen Hyland of Southwest Harbor. A celebration of Marcias life will be held at a date to be determined. If so desired, donations in Marcias memory may be made to: Acadia Wildlife Center, P.O. Box 207, Mount Desert, ME 04660-0207.

To remove testing while were in this state of emergency is bizarre, said Ruane, who also noted that Florida Governor Rick Scott issued an emergency order in response to algae blooms occurring in the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie Estuaries. The order includes Lee, Glades, Hendry, Martin, Okeechobee, Palm Beach and St. Lucie counties. Ruane and his fellow council members have requested that island residents join in their battle for improved water quality, issuing a Call to Action to begin a campaign pushing the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to restore funding for Floridas Healthy Beaches program. The annual costs to maintain the current level of sampling are estimated at approximately $34,000, or approximately $63 per sample. Cuts to the Healthy Beaches program will reduce bacteria sampling in Lee County from 15 sites to nine sites and sampling frequency from weekly to bi-weekly, Ruanes letter to Sanibel citizens issued on July 10 reads, in part. The changes to the program will result in less information available to the public about the health and safety of Lee Countys beaches. Members of the council also authorized Councilwoman Holly 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. In addition, Vice Mayor Mick Denham 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. Dont direct your fury at me, direct it at the people who can do something, said Denham, who explained that he is often confronted by citizens concerned with the current state of water quality in the local watershed. We need to do more. Call To Action On July 10, the City of Sanibel distributed two Call To Action alerts via their email contact list. Freshwater releases from Lake Okeechobee and stormwater runoff from the Caloosahatchee watershed are resulting in extensive blue-green algae blooms that are currently impacting more than 60 miles of the 75-mile Caloosahatchee River and Estuary, the communication from Ruane to local residents reads, in part. The blue-green algae, also referred to as cyanobacteria, have been identified as Microcystis aeruginosa, a known toxin-producing species. These blooms have resulted in beach closures along the Caloosahatchee and have prompted the Florida Department of Health to post warnings to avoid contact with the algae. Ruane then requested that citizens contact authorities with Lee County Board of County Commissioners, the Lee County Tourism Development Council, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, state and federal representatives as well as President Donald Trump to let them know how water quality issues are impacting their quality of life. The ongoing water quality problems associated with Lake Okeechobee releases and runoff from the Caloosahatchee watershed must be addressed immediately, added Ruane. This is critical for the health and safety of our coastal communities, to protect the ecology of our river and estuary, and to preserve our quality of life and local economy. The Call to Action also includes requests for officials to maintain flows to the Caloosahatchee at or below 3,000 cubic feet per second (cfs) measured at the WP Franklin Lock (S-79) for the remainder of the wet season; accelerate critical Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP) projects, including the Everglades Agricultural Area Reservoir, C-43 Reservoir and the Lake Okeechobee Watershed Project; and have the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers utilize maximum operational flexibility to move additional water south and, if necessary, overcome operational constraints that do not directly impact human health and safety.

Plant SmartKeys Blackbeadby Gerri ReavesKeys blackbead (Pithecellobium keyense) is a native wide-spreading shrub or small tree that is listed as threatened by the state of Florida. It typically grows in sandy soil in hammocks, pinelands, shell mounds and coastal dunes in Floridas lower coastal counties and the Florida Keys, reaching a height of eight to 15 feet. This member of the pea family is notable for both its ornamental and wildlife-friendly attributes, and is an excellent choice for a bird and butterfly garden. Two pairs of leaflets make up the leaves. Each leaflet is oval, obovate or elliptical and an inch or two long, often with a notched tip. New growth has a reddish tinge. Stalks of yellow-white or pinkish flowers appear in late winter into spring. Each fragrant flower is about an inch across. The numerous thin stamens extending from a spherical center create a delicate star-like effect. The distinctive pod is flat, slender, curving or coiled, a shape that inspires another common name, rams horn. The pod measures up to eight inches long and matures in summer. The round black seeds thus the term blackbead within the pod have red arils or fleshy coverings. Birds eat the aril and seeds and find cover in the trees dense foliage. This species is the host for the giant orange sulphur and the cassius blue butterflies, and a nectar plant for many other butterflies. This small tree will grow in partial shade or full sun and sometimes self-sows near the parent plant.

From page 1Sea School AEDsstops beating. Safety is our number one goal at Sanibel Sea School, and we take it seriously, said Emmett Horvath, the schools marine science educator who is credited with conceiving the idea for the fundraiser. All of our staff are first aid and CPR certified, but that training is much less effective without access to the proper equipment. According to Horvath, on average, Sanibel Sea School vehicles and vessels are out in the field more than 700 days per year, covering a large portion of the islands. Each is equipped with a first aid kit, but none are currently stocked with an AED. Both buildings at the schools 455 Periwinkle Way campus have AEDs. Very often, we treat minor injuries while out in the field, for people not associated with our programs from helping someone who has just crashed on their bicycle to cleaning and wrapping shell lacerations, said Horvath. We would like to be prepared for more serious conditions that we may encounter in our community. According to 2014 data, nearly 45 percent of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest victims survived SCA when bystander CPR/AED was administered. In one year alone, 475,000 Americans die from cardiac arrest. Globally, cardiac arrest claims more lives than colorectal cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, influenza, pneumonia, auto accidents, HIV, firearms and house fires combined. SCA is a leading cause of death in the United States. More than 350,000 cardiac arrests occur outside of the hospital each year. Twelve percent of those victims survive, said Tim Barrett, training officer with the Sanibel Fire Rescue District. SCA can happen to anyone at any time. It is important for companies and organizations to implement AED programs so employees are prepared to respond to an SCA emergency. Dr. Bruce Neill, co-founder and executive director of Sanibel Sea School, takes great pride when discussing the members of his team who helped create and launch the campaign. I am very proud of the people I work with. They are well trained and thoughtful of how they can use their skills and talents to not only keep our clients safe, but extend themselves to our community at large, said Dr. Neill. Having five or six vehicles equipped with AEDs may save the life of someone in our community. I hope we never need to use one of these, but I would rather have them and not need them, than need them and not have one. How much is it worth to save a life in our community? I suspect to that individual, it would be priceless. To make a donation, visit www. mightycause.com/story/asafersanibel or call Sanibel Sea School at 472-8585. Our goal is to have an AED in each of our vehicles and vessels so that when an emergency arises, we are able to make the fullest use of our training, added Horvath. And we will mark each vehicle so that anyone who may need an AED knows that we have them.
Community Help Needed For School SuppliesFISH of SanCap is asking the community for help in making school a better place for students and teachers by the simple act of providing school supplies. Starting school with the proper school supplies promotes learning and helps keep students engaged in school. For families, especially those with more than one child, the back to school shopping expenses multiply, said Kathy Monroe, FISH program director. We have learned that many parents struggle to pay for their school supplies along with the additional cash donations requested at the school for reams of paper, craft supplies, planners and such. It can become a real financial burden. Beginning now through Friday, July 27, supplies may be dropped off at Baileys General Store in the bin near the registers, Sanibel Recreation Center in the bin in the lobby, or at the FISH Walk-In Center. Cash donations will also be accepted at the FISH Walk-In Center, where you can designate your donation for back to school supplies. Supplies needed include the following. For a complete list of school supplies by grade, visit http://sbl.leeschools.net/ supply-lists: #2 medium soft pencils and pencil pouches 24-pack Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils 24-pack Classic Color Crayola Crayons 8or 10-pack Crayola Broad Point Markers in Classic Colors Student scissors, left and right handed Elmers Giant Disappearing Purple School Glue Sticks 4-ounce bottles of Washable Elmers Glue Notebook filler paper (wide ruled) and 1.5-inch white 3-ring binders Composition books, spiral notebooks and 3by 5-inch index cards Headphones or ear buds Packages of pens: red, black, blue Our hope is that every child has exactly what they need to begin the school year, said Maggi Feiner, FISH president and CEO. We want our future leaders to have the necessary tools to excel, and it starts with the supplies; it really matters. And, youll be putting a smile on the face of a child as they arrive on the first day of school. Thank you in advance for your support.

Recycle Smart And Save Taxpayer DollarsLee County ranks third in the state with a 74 percent recycling rate, according to data recently released by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, putting the county on track to meet the statewide 75 percent recycling goal by 2020. But achieving that goal will not be easy. In order to reach the 74 percent rate, Lee Countys recycling contractor had to pull 19.4 million pounds of trash out of the recycling carts. Thats nearly 10,000 tons of trash that should not have been placed in recycling bins. Removing it cost taxpayers $362,871. It is more important than ever that everyone learns to Recycle Smart. Only five materials belong in a recycling cart: 1) Metal cans are acceptable, including both aluminum and steel 2) Plastic containers labeled No. 1 through No. 7 on the bottom or side. Container is the key word; not straws, hangers or pool noodles 3) Glass bottles and jars 4) Cardboard boxes are acceptable unless it held a liquid or a frozen food 5) Papers are accepted unless shredded or soiled Everything in the cart needs to be clean and dry. Recycled materials are resold and no one buys materials covered in coffee grounds or lasagna. If in doubt about something, throw it out. If its still usable, donate or sell it. Clean recycled materials are such an issue nationwide that China, the worlds largest buyer of scrap materials, stopped buying U.S. materials on May 1. That means the market for recyclable materials dropped dramatically. Lee County must offer clean materials for sale or 83,000 tons will be sent for disposal rather than be recycled. Haulers are getting more stringent about the recycling they will collect. Recycling carts that contain plastic bags, which are not recyclable in your curbside cart, might be tagged as contaminated and left at the curb. Any recycling container containing food waste or diapers will be left behind as well as those containing items that should more appropriately be donated, such as a bedspread or sheets. Lee County has been a recycling leader in Florida since 2002, with a recent campaign to focus on proper recycling. You can find more information about how to Recycle Smart on the Solid Waste website at www.leecounty.com/ solidwaste. 11 ISLAND SUN JULY 20, 2018
Small Bait For Big Action by Capt. Matt MitchellWith the sweltering summer heat turned all the way up, some of the best action this week came while fishing small shiners. Open water flats fishing with these baits caught a wide variety of fish including trout, silver trout, mackerel, jacks, small sharks and ladyfish. If your looking for high-activity fishing, this has been hard to beat. Popping corks with a live shiner made this a easy kid-friendly fishery with fish coming on almost every cast at times. Small shiners or what we call fry or maggot baits have appeared all over the sound and beaches this past week. They can often be spotted right up on the shore or out on shallow grass flats. With a couple of throws of a small mesh cast net, its possible to catch a live well full of bait that just about everything that swims will eat this time of year. We had plenty of bait to be able to live chum. Its amazing how places just come to life with a few scoops of this bait. The area of a few miles on the eastern side of the sound from Chino Island to Flamingo Bay Channel has been a great place to get started on this open water flats fishing. Simply start fishing in three to five feet and move until you locate the best action. This is a really popular area as you can tell by the 20-plus boats in here doing this fun fishing almost daily. Its just a great way to start the day as you can quickly get all your clients a few fish and get the skunk out. Most days, we have managed a few keeper trout and mackerel in here before moving on to bigger and better things. Despite the funky little green blobs of floating algae in the south end of Matlacha Pass, the fishing in this area during the incoming tide has been outstanding. Chumming the small fry bait has had keeper mangrove snapper exploding on the surface as they chase them down. Add to that a few snook, jacks and mackerel, and this has been hard to beat. During the incoming tide, there are many oyster bars in this area that the tide rolls over and creates feeding stations for a variety of fish along with limits of mangrove snapper This week, I experienced some of the cleaner, clearer water I have ever seen in the northern sound. While targeting channel markers south of Cabbage Key for gag grouper in certain areas, you could see the bottom in 12 feet of water. Although this super clear water is pretty, I prefer to fish and do better in dirty or stained water. Clear water in the passes has slowed the snook bite even though you can see this fish stacked in there by the hundreds. 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 WeekGold-Line Marginellaby Jos H. Leal, PhD, BaileyMatthews National Shell Museum Science Director and CuratorThe Gold-line Marginella Dentimargo aureocinctus (Stearns, 1872), is a close relative of the locally more conspicuous, the Common Atlantic Marginella, Prunum apicinum (Menke, 1828). Both are members of the family Marginellidae, noted for the thick outer lip on the shell of their species. The shell of the Gold-line Marginella, however, differs from the latter species by its smaller size (about 4 mm, or 0.16 inch) and by having a more elongated spire and a single golden-yellow spiral band set against a whitish background.

Striped Skunk by Bob PetcherThe striped skunk ( Mephitis mephitis) is so named due to its white linear marking on its back. The stripe runs from its head to its tail, beginning with a triangle shape and breaking into two lines to form a V shape. The striped skunk is one of four species of skunks in North America. The most common of its species, it is the size of a house cat (on average) with short legs, webbed toes and sharp claws for digging and hunting. When it does look for food, the omnivorous mammal tends to seek out insects, fish, fruits, nuts and other small mammals... when it isnt concentrating on leaves, grasses and carrion. Due to their short legs, striped skunks are not fast runners and cannot escape predators. Fortunately for them, a good part of their defense mechanisms involve their powerfully strong-smelling spray. This fluid is not only pungent and foul, it can sting a predators eyes and thus allow it time to run away. These sprays can be effective from more than 10 feet away, yet the odor can be detected more than a mile away. While many people are turned off by these creatures, this nocturnal animal is an important source of insect control, and their musk quality is used as a perfume foundation. They are also immune to snake venom and are known to eat poisonous snakes. On average, a typical striped skunk litter will have five to six babies. Interestingly, these newborns are blind and deaf when they are born. They reportedly only open their eyes at three weeks old and nurse until six or seven weeks. It is around this time that their mother teaches them how to forage and hunt. They venture out in this search by forming a single file behind their mother On June 24, two juvenile striped skunks were admitted to the clinic from North Fort Myers. The individual who found the skunks attempted to care for them for three days by providing cat food and medication before seeking the help of a wildlife rehabilitator. When they were admitted to the clinic, one of the two skunks had severe neurologic signs and did not survive. The other skunk was quiet but alert while being handled during the exam. Its eyes were slightly sunken, but no discharge was noted, and it was dehydrated. It was provided with fluids and monitored closely over the following days for neurologic and gastrointestinal signs. There were several potential reasons for neurologic signs in the young skunk that did not survive, most likely related to malnourishment (hypoglycemia or low blood sugar) or systemic infection (bacterial or viral), said Dr. Robin Bast, CROWs staff veterinarian. The skunk that did survive was quiet but otherwise neurologically normal. The GI clinical signs noted initially were likely due to being fed an inappropriate diet prior to being brought to the hospital. If the babies had received the appropriate medical attention sooner, the outcome may have been different. Feeding an inappropriate diet to a neonate can result in significant abnormalities and can even be life-threatening. After three weeks at the clinic, there has been noted improvement in the surviving patient. The surviving baby has done great throughout her stay at the hospital no diarrhea, normal mentation. She is eating on her own and is now in an outside enclosure as she continues to grow up, added Dr. Bast. The skunk is estimated to be about eight weeks old at this point. She will be released at approximately 16 weeks of age, when she is old enough and ready to fend for herself. CROW officials warn that if you find a baby animal and you think it may need help, you should contact a wildlife rehabilitator before acting or taking the animal out of its natural environment. The care for an orphaned wild baby should be left to a professional; one should never try to raise a wild animal in ones home.

ISLAND SUN JULY 20, 201818 Healthy Paddling: Build Your Balanceby Ocean Tribe PaddlersMaintaining your stability on the water is an important aspect of all paddle sports, but stand up paddleboarding in particular requires excellent balance. Positioning yourself properly and cross training to improve your stability will improve your overall paddling experience. To find your balance on a SUP, start by kneeling in the center of the board. Holding the sides of the board, called the rails, slowly stand just behind the midpoint of the boards length (often there is a handle located in the exact center). Your feet should be parallel to the rails, and approximately hip distance apart. Bend your knees slightly, and look at the horizon, never down at the board. There are a few simple exercises that can help you achieve better balance. To strengthen your ankles, position a resistance band over the ball of your foot, holding one end of the band in each hand. Flex and point your toes while applying light resistance. Next, try standing on one foot while lifting the other a few inches off of the ground. When you feel comfortable doing this with your eyes open, try closing them. Opposite arm and leg reaches, planks, squats and yoga are also very effective exercises to improve balance. Check the Internet for additional instruction and demonstrations. For more advanced paddlers, an Indo Board is one of our favorite tools to challenge your balance. Basically a flat piece of wood balanced on a cylinder or cushion, it offers a multitude of exercises designed to support balance training and strengthen your core. Commit to a few minutes of balance work each day and you will feel more stable on your board in no time. Ocean Tribe Paddlers is a club that helps the Southwest Florida paddling community better explore, enjoy and understand the ocean.

The organization also hosted a fishing camp for teens, offering older attendees a chance to learn waterman skills that can be enjoyed year-round. Submarine Snail Week was all about tiny gastropods that spend their days burrowing in the wet sand. Lettered olives can be found buried in shallow areas just beneath the low tide line, poking their siphons out to sniff for tasty clams. Campers built their own snail trails, snorkeled in the subtidal zone and observed live lettered olives feeding in Sanibel Sea Schools aquarium. They also designed submarines, wrote and shared stories about lettered olives, and created a float for the Sanibel Fourth of July parade. We were very inspired by the weeks theme, so we made our float look like a submarine and named it the USS Gastropod, said counselor Emma Neill. Fishing Week participants practiced useful skills like knot tying, fly crafting and net weaving. They also learned how to use cast nets and seine nets, along with more traditional fishing rods, and fished in a variety of different habitats. During a much needed break from the sun, group leader Emmett Horvath taught campers how to create tie dye in a fish scale pattern. As usual, there was also plenty of time for surfing, macram tying and hanging out with camp friends. For more information, visit www.sanibelseaschool. org.

ISLAND SUN JULY 20, 201820 The Community HousePeppercorns by Resident Chef Jarred HarrisPeppercorns are the dried fruit of the piper nigrum plant, which is a member of the Piperaceae family. This species produces many types of peppercorns that are used as a spice and as medicine. Peppercorns contains a chemical called piperine. This chemical gives pepper its distinctive taste and causes most people to sneeze. The piper nigrum plant is grown throughout Southeast Asia and other subtropical regions around the world, with Vietnam being the largest producer of black peppercorns worldwide. Peppercorns are one of the most prized spices in the world today, making up 20 percent of the monetary value of the global spice trade. Native to South India, peppercorns have been cultivated for over 4,000 years. In fact, peppercorns were found in Egyptian tombs with pharaohs, dating back 2,500 years before Christ. Peppercorns can be found in four colors, with black being the most common. Black peppercorns are picked when they are green, pickled and dried in the sun until they turn black. White peppercorns are black peppercorns with the skin removed. Green peppercorns are picked when they are green and then pickled, freeze-dried, dehydrated or packed in brine. Red peppercorns are the most expensive variety because they are rare. Red peppercorns are green peppercorns that are ripened before they are picked and then dried. Peppercorns contain vitamin C, K and B6. They contain manganese, copper, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, iron and potassium. Black pepper also has a very high caffeine content. Peppercorn should be store in a cool dry place, or even the refrigerator. Here is an interesting recipe to try: Black Pepper Scallion and Cheddar Biscuits Ingredients 3 cups all-purpose flour 1 tbsp. granulated sugar 4 tsp. baking powder tsp. cream of tarter tsp. salt tsp. ground black pepper cup cold buttermilk (plus extra for topping) 1 egg cup cheddar cheese (shredded) 4 scallions (diced) cup butter (cold and cut into small cubes) Ground black pepper for topping Directions Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking pan with parchment paper or a non-stick silicone sheet and set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, cream of tarter and salt. Add the butter to the flour mixture. Using your fingers or a pastry blender, work the butter into the flour, until the butter is well blended. In a small bowl, whisk together the buttermilk and egg. Add the cheese and scallion mixture to the flour mixture and blend. Create a small well in the center of the flour mixture and add the buttermilk mixture all at once. Blend the mixture together with your fingers or a fork, until a dough is formed. (about 4 minutes) Form the dough inch thick and cut into shapes with a knife or biscuit cutter. Place the biscuits on the prepared baking pan and brush with buttermilk and top with cracked black pepper. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.

SUN Book ReviewLeopard At The Doorby Di SaggauLeopard at the Door by Jennifer McVeigh is a classic page-turner not just due to the story but also due to the beautiful prose and lush descriptions within. The story is set in Africa, in 1952 Kenya against the backdrop of the Mau Mau uprising, which eventually led to Kenya departing from British rule. McVeigh knows the territory well having traveled in wilderness areas of East Africa and Southern Africa, often in off-road vehicles, driving and camping along the way. She also honeymooned there. The main protagonist in the story is 18-year-old Rachel Fullsmith, who after attending boarding school in England for six years, returns to the family farm in Kenya. Her British parents went there to be farmers and Rachel had a rich childhood living there. Her father sent her back to England when her mother died. Against his wishes, she comes back to find that everything has changed. There is now political turmoil and violence. Her father has a new companion, a strange, intolerant woman, who has taken over the household. Rachel tries to get along with her but to no avail. Shel is left with a bewildering sense of isolation and foreboding that she will not be able to protect her father from a woman who seems to be dragging him into unhappiness. Her former tutor, Michael, is the only person Rachel can identify with because they have both been victimized by patriarchal, colonial society. Both are outcasts and as their relationship grows stronger, the political situation in Kenya grows more frightening and unsettling by the day. Looming over everyone is the threat of the Mau Mau, a secret society intent on uniting the native Kenyans and overthrowing the whites. As Rachel struggles to find her place in her home and country, she initiates a covert relationship, one that will demand from her a gross act of betrayal. One man knows her secret and he has made it clear how she can buy his silence. Rachel is haunted by an event she witnessed at the age of 12, the murder of a Kenyan striker at her uncles bacon factory. McVeigh has a gift for storytelling and a capacity for empathy as she describes Rachel caught somewhere between her loyalty to her family and to the natives. Some of the African protectors of her childhood have become killers. They warn, Kenya is a black mans country You should go back to where you belong. Leopard at the Door is an intense and thoroughly enjoyable read. School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My daughter will be going to kindergarten soon and Im trying to help her build her independence. Shes hesitant about making choices and doesnt seem to be able to persevere with a task. Please give me some suggestions. Sacha E., Fort Myers Sacha, Building independence is a process across time but you are wise to recognize this issue with your daughter and work on improving her confidence so she can be independent. Here are a couple of suggestions for you: Offer your daughter guided choices and try not to ask her open-ended questions such as, What do you want to do today? Instead, help focus her attention by offering guided choices. Provide options that are acceptable to you and that also come with responsibilities. Examples include letting her choose between two household chores or letting her help plan a fun group activity by picking between two board games and setting it up. Offering your child guided choices will show your faith in her abilities and nurture her independence. Offering guided choices makes children feel more in control. It can also help minimize whining and other irritating behavior. Ignoring these milder behaviors can be an effective way to get kids to stop seeking attention in these ways. Consistency and follow-through play a big role in developing positive patterns of behavior. To help increase your daughters focus on the task at hand, a good strategy is to allow her to keep trying continued on page 27 23 ISLAND SUN JULY 20, 2018

However, there are a few pieces every homeowner should consider investing in to bring the unique combination of practicality and style into their house. Console tables can serve multiple purposes and be displayed in a variety of rooms. Determining where your table would be most effective whether its the foyer, living room or dining room can be challenging. If you have ample space in your entryway, a console table against an empty wall can add visual interest to the area and provide convenient storage room for belongings like keys, mail and purses. Placed along the back of a sofa or a stretch of wall in your bedroom or dining room, console tables are great for displaying decorative accessories, such as plants or photos. Mirrors add depth and visual interest to any space. They can also play a role in making the room appear brighter and more open because they bounce the natural light throughout the area. Select one with a dramatic design and unusual shape or finish to make accent pieces stand out. Mirrors may not be a large accessory, but the light, style and elegance they can add to the area makes them a surprisingly impactful addition. Ottomans are very versatile and are available in many stylish colors and designs. Not only can they be used for extra seating, but they work as efficient storage spaces or coffee tables in the living room. Shapes range from square to round to hexagonal. Regardless of the size, there are many possible details and characteristics to choose from. Some ottomans are tufted, while others are tight, plain, buttoned, boxed or skirted. They can also have legs or casters. End tables can have a major impact on your living room from a functional and aesthetic perspective. Like console and coffee tables, they come in many styles. While size is relatively the same for most end tables, rectangular and circle shapes are the most common way of adding variation. These practical accents provide necessary surface space for lamps and everyday items, like the TV remotes and beverages. Love seats are effective alternatives to sofas in smaller spaces and can be moved to other rooms when youre in the mood for a change. A love seat may start out as an accent in the living room, but it might also be suited for a stylish and useful seating area at the foot of your bed. Due to the high number of options when it comes to color, style and patterns, a design professional can guide you as you look for one that suits all your preferences.

25 ISLAND SUN JULY 20, 2018 Pam Rambo has been struggling to reclaim the Shell Love Bug from Lee County for the past two years and has had to resort to hiring attorneys to reclaim her creation. The county attorney has vigorously pursued this case, contending that the Shell Love Bug is simply an excess eet vehicle and should be disposed of at auction. He is blindly ignoring *Florida Statute 274.06 which pertains to this situation. The statute states in part, a governmental units property that is obsolete or the continued use of which is uneconomical or inefcient, or which serves no useful function, may be disposed of for value to any person. It further states: Property, the value of which the governmental unit estimates to be under $5,000, may be disposed of in the most efcient and cost effective means as determined by the governmental unit. According to Commissioner Frank Mann, the current blue book value of the 2005 VW Beetle is around $4,000. Simply utilizing this statute would allow a quick, amicable resolution to this case. Legal expenses combined are approaching $50,000 and are mounting daily. The county has employed additional attorneys to work on this case without being any closer to resolution. Pam and her attorneys have made numerous offers for settlement which have been ignored by the county. Commissioner Frank Manns article in The News Press and local papers shows that he understands that the county needs to resolve this issue in order to deal with more pressing problems facing Lee County. On behalf of Lee County taxpayers and the islands of Sanibel and Captiva, we implore the Lee County Commissioners to resolve this issue and stop wasting our money on attorneys!

ISLAND SUN JULY 20, 201826 Pounding Sounds With Taiko Drumsby Jeff LysiakTraditionally, libraries are very quiet places. But recently at the Sanibel Public Library, the sounds of Japanese drums and other percussion instruments boomed through the second floor of the facility as Sensei Ron Collins of Tampa Taiko Drums delivered a 45-minute presentation on the history, playing methods and purpose of drums in times of war, drought and gallant celebration. Konichiwa! Collins said to open his July 3 program. That means Good afternoon in Japanese. Do any of you speak Japanese? The crowd, which included two dozen youngsters and a handful of adults, admitted they didnt. Yes, you do, Collins added with a smile. You know what sushi is, right? And you know what Sayonara means Goodbye. And how many of you have heard of Toyota cars? Soon, the audience learned that the word taiko means drum in Japanese. According to Collins, the use of drums is deeply entrenched in the fabric of Japanese culture. Taiko drums were used to drive away pests harmful to crops. By imitating the sound of thunder, it was believed that they could bring rain. And at harvest time, taiko drums were always played to celebrate and to show appreciation for a bountiful crop, his website reads, in part. Taiko drums were often used at contests to motivate the group, to make announcements or to call out orders. Collins brought four large taiko drums with him to the library. Made out of discarded wine barrels from the Napa Valley region in California, the Largo, Florida resident uses stretched cowhide as the skins for each drum. They take approximately 30 days to assemble. He also shared the five different notes that can be played on the drums, varying the strike location from the center of the drum to the edge and the amount of pressure delivered with each strike. There are 88 keys on a piano, but only five notes on the drum, said Collins. It kinda sounds like to me that playing the taiko would be easier to learn.

Letting your child attempt to solve a problem independently is a valuable learning experience even though it might be painful for you to watch. Try not to step in until your child has exhausted reasonable options. Heres an example of something you might want to say to her for encouragement: Youre doing a great job building with your construction blocks. I can see that youre getting frustrated because those pieces dont fit together very well. Why dont you look at the picture on the box to see if that will help you figure it out? Try again, and if youre still having trouble, Ill help you. Great job, you did it all by yourself! Letting your child try to fix problems independently may cause some frustration for both of you. But each success she experiences will lead to increased self-confidence and willingness to attempt more challenging tasks.

First award of the new year: Best Not-forProfit Float award for our outstanding Sanibel Fourth of July parade entry. So, thank you judges and thank you to all the amazing people that organize this wonderful home-grown community event, each and every year. John Danner, club president, must have been channeling our countrys independence while on the float because he extended his patriotic spirit beyond that day and made a visit to Washington, DC with his two granddaughters, just one week later. He and the two young teens, 13 and 14, spent four days exploring monuments, museums, and the Capitol and Supreme Court buildings. But Danner didnt tell us about this trip to impress us with his efforts to expand the girls understanding of our countrys history and the freedoms, but for another reason. As they were walking around Washington, DC, they literally stumbled on the Thousand Points of Light pathway in an area adjacent to the White House. Now some of you may remember, not too long ago in the news, there was a question about a thousand points of light, that went like this: What the hell was that, by the way, thousand points of light? What did that mean? Does anyone know? Thousand points of light, I never quite got that one. So, Danner now had the answer. Thousand points of light is a term President George Bush, Sr. used to reference community volunteer organizations that spread like stars throughout the country. We can find meaning and reward by serving some higher purpose than ourselves, a shining purpose, the illumination of a Thousand Points of Light We all have something to give. This memorial spans a one-mile walking path in the heart of downtown Washington, DC; a series of customdesigned bronze medallions that are set into a granite block in the sidewalk as a remembrance of service to humanity. Just a few of the notable names embedded are Clara Barton, Rachel Carson, Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglas, Millard and Linda Fuller, and Paul Harris. Our Rotary International motto this year is, Be an Inspiration. These are people who serve as an inspiration to many of us. Especially Paul Harris, the founder of Rotary. Our guest at Rotary this week was Sanibel City Manager Judie Zimomra. She is an inspiration to all who work with and for her in our community. She was named Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Citizen of the Year a few years ago and is a Paul Harris Award recipient. Zimomra earned her bachelor of arts degree from Kent State University, her masters degree in public administration from Ohio State University, and her juris doctorate degree from Capital University. She is also a graduate of the Harvard University John F. Kennedy School of Government Senior Executives in State and Local Government Program. She has been the city manager of Sanibel for the last 16 years. During those 16 years, she has proven herself an outstanding leader and garnered a reputation of being unequally qualified at the helm of Sanibel, and respected throughout the state of Florida and beyond. Just as she was approaching the podium, Zimomra got an email alert regarding posting of water quality signs at the Causeway, Dixie Beach Road and Bailey Road, where there was the presence of blue-green algae, just part of her job to stay aware of water conditions around the island. She was more retrospective on this topic than I thought she would be. This is a continuing water issue and seems to happen every year around this time. She handed out two reports about water issues, both having discussion points regarding water discharges from Lake Okeechobee and algal blooms. Zimomra praised Congressman Rooney for championing SB10 for Everglades restoration and its CERP reservoir plan and told us Sanibel Mayor Kevin Ruane was going to Washington soon to lobby for this bill. We could have stayed on this topic all morning, but we didnt. Hurricane preparation and clean up, the city budget, traffic, infrastructure, bike paths, density issues. All were discussed. Zimomra went into a few details on these topics and let me tell you, a lot of thought and planning goes into decision making here on Sanibel, particularly in the finance department. Decisions regarding workforce compensations in a tight workplace, advance securing of a line of credit for city emergencies, more live traffic cameras to help control traffic jams, bike path repairs, improvements and extensions, public bathroom and power lift station builds and improvements, off-island zoning/construction, and development along hurricane evacuation routes. Environmental issues are constantly on the radar and citizen input is always welcome. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets Friday mornings at 7 a.m. at The Dunes Golf & Tennis Club. Guests are welcome. Judie Zimomra photo provided

ISLAND SUN JULY 20, 201834 Americans dont like to talk about sensitive topics like money and death. I deal with both of these topics on a daily basis with my clients, so to me its pretty much second nature. Its apparent, however, that most of my clients squirm at the thought of revealing their financial condition, as they must in order for me to properly help plan their estate. Couple that with discussing their own mortality and youve got a pretty nasty combination. And thats just the beginning. While communication with your team of legal, tax and financial professionals is important to put a proper estate plan in place, the project isnt complete without informing your loved ones. Im not kidding. Why do I need to tell my family about my finances and my will? Its none of their business! Ive heard that on more than occasion. I reply that you dont need to tell your family, but the more that you communicate, the less likely problems arise. Consider a situation where in his last will and testament, Tim designates his Florida property for his son and another Michigan property for his daughter. Tim then has a stroke and becomes unable to communicate. He eventually needs a nursing home, but Tim doesnt have a lot of money. Discovering his lack of liquidity, daughter decides to move Tim to his Michigan lake house (near where she lives), and sells the Florida property to provide money for his care. Daughters actions effectively disinherited her brother from Tims estate. Daughter and son didnt realize this until Tims death, as Tim didnt communicate his financial condition or the contents of his will with his children. Daughter disinherited her brother innocently, but that could easily devolve into bad feelings and finger pointing. Communication of his financial condition, along with the contents of his will prior to his illness, could have helped his children consider alternatives that could have avoided these problems. Yet another common communication problem arises in blended families. Consider the situation where Joe is married to Laura, his second wife who is not the mother of his children, Matt and Luiza. Joe loves Laura and wants to provide for her, but he doesnt want to leave everything outright to her, since Joe wants his children to benefit from his wealth following Lauras death. Joe leaves a life estate in his residence to Laura, along with a marital trust that pays Laura income for her life. At Lauras death, all of the assets are left to Matt and Luiza. Joe should communicate his intent to Laura and his children. Who knows what their expectations are? While Joe might feel that no one should have expectations, that attitude defies human nature. Laura may not have many assets of her own to live off of and may be quite fearful of her financial future if Joe predeceases her. If Joe doesnt discuss and share with her what he intends to leave her and how he intends to leave it, Lauras anxiety is only going to increase. In the best of all worlds, Joe and Laura meet not only with the estate attorney but also with a financial planner to discuss budgets and needs under various conditions. Joes portfolio may or may not be appropriate to meet his intent. At the same time, theres the danger that Lauras relationship with Matt and Luiza becomes acrimonious after Joes passing. If Joe sits down with his children and explains how he wants his estate plan to work, then they are less likely to be wary of any money that Laura spends. Consider that every dollar Laura spends for the rest of her life is one less dollar the children will inherit. The children might even bring up valid points that Joe may not have considered. What if Laura is close in age to the children? What if Laura doesnt want to live in the house any longer and needs nursing home care? Should the house be sold to provide money for that care? Is it more important for the children to inherit the home than the money one day? What about the contents of the home? Are there any items that Laura wouldnt value but are invaluable to the children? There are a million things to discuss. The problem is, no one wants to. Then when something happens, everyone wishes that these things were discussed while Joe was healthy. A joint meeting with a third party like an estate attorney may help get the ball rolling with delicate topics like these. Dont just sweep them under the rug because theyre uncomfortable topics.

All-Star Break Report: Red Sox With Blazing Start, Twins Show Signs Of Resurgenceby Ed FrankAs the baseball season takes its mid-summers break for the All-Star Game, it provides the opportunity to review the first four months of the season with emphasis on the Boston Red Sox and the Minnesota Twins, our two local teams that have called our area home for Spring Training for decades. We will also report on the two Florida teams the Miami Marlins and the Tampa Bay Rays. First to the Red Sox: Although Boston was a pre-season favorite for postseason play, no one predicted the blazing results to date. When the All-Star break began Monday of this week, Boston had a 68-30 record (.694), the best in baseball, and a 3 game lead over the arch-rival New York Yankees in the American League Eastern Division. It was their best record since 1949. You need only to examine some of the American League statistics to understand why. Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez are first and third in league batting at .359 and .328 respectively. Martinez, with 29 home runs, is tied for first and leads the league with 80 RBIs. Betts is second in runs scored with 79, and Martinez is in the top five in hits with 116. Florida Gulf Coast university alum Chris Sale is tops in the American League with a 2.23 ERA and 188 strikeouts. Get the picture why the 2018 Red Sox are so good? Now to the Minnesota Twins: Its been a hard-to-describe first half for the Twins. After a miserable 2-11 road trip, they returned home to Target Field to go 9-2 before the break, capped by a thrilling 10th inning grand slam last Sunday by Brain Dozier against Tampa Bay. With that surge, suddenly the playoff picture brightens. At the break, Minnesota was second in the AL Central at 44-50, just 7 games behind first-place Cleveland, who went 4-6 through last Sunday. The question remains whether the Twins will be buyers or sellers before the July 31 trading deadline. Dozier has been and continues to be a hot trade rumor. And the only member of the Twins with a full no-trade clause is Joe Mauer, who is in his last year of an eight-year contract. No question the biggest disappointments this season are former top prospects Byron Buxton and Miquel Sano. Sano was sent back here to the Fort Myers Miracle for several weeks to get in shape and regain his batting stroke. And the often-injured Buxton left a game at Triple A Rochester last week with a sore wrist. But remember that Buxton, just 24, hit over .300 the second half of last season. Sano, 26, was an All-Star last year and competed in the home run derby. Perhaps the Twins just have to be patient with Buxton and Sano. The Marlins and Rays: Major League Baseball attendance is down this year more than 6 percent, but nowhere is it more prevalent than here in Florida with the Marlins and Rays. Both are very last in home attendance, with the Rays averaging just 14,696 per game. Thats ranks 29th of the 30 teams in the Major Leagues. And the Marlins are even worse, dead last at 9,558 per game. A recent crowd of just 5,265 for a game against Milwaukee was the smallest in the history of Marlins Park, which opened in 2012. Many Minor League teams draw larger crowds. The Rays last week unveiled an elaborate plan to build a new domed stadium across Tampa Bay at a cost of $900 million. The 32,000-seat stadium would be the smallest in the Major Leagues. The Rays have been trying for years to gain support for a new stadium. Stuart Sternberg, team owner, said it will probably be 2023 before the park would open. SUN ISLAND SUN JULY 20, 201836 SPORTS QUIZ 1.

Debbie Hahn Larry Hahn Harrell, Tolp and Albright Nancy Finch Life InsuranceLife Insurance For Long-Term Care J. Brendan Ryan, CLU, ChFC, MSFSI have been a constant promoter of a certain hybrid insurance policy ever since it became available about seven years ago, when Congress passed a new tax law related to life insurance and annuities. That law allowed tax breaks for the first time to certain long-term care (LTC) benefits when attached to certain life insurance and annuity policies written after the law was enacted. As for the annuity tax break, I have found little use for it since, for one thing in my experience, it works well only if a person has a rather large lump sum to put into the policy. I recommend it when the person cannot get the life insurance because of health history and can afford the required lump sum. The life insurance approach is more flexible and, I believe, more beneficial than the annuity approach, so the following discusses just that technique. In general, the life insurance technique allows a person to obtain a policy that, like any other life insurance policy, pays a death benefit to the beneficiary at the death of the insured. But it also allows the owner to draw down the death benefit during the lifetime of the insured to reimburse the insured for eligible expenses incurred if the insured needs LTC either in a nursing home, assisted living facility, adult day care facility or a home health care setting. Thus, in the policies that I have worked with, 100 percent of the benefit will be paid out, either to the beneficiary as a death benefit, to the insured as a LTC benefit, or part to each. And all benefits paid as a death benefit or LTC benefit are tax-free. These policies guarantee an LTC benefit in various forms at the discretion of the insurance owner at the time the policy is obtained. The most common way to receive LTC benefits from a life insurance policy is at a rate of two percent of the death benefit per month maximum for as many as 50 months. If the insured does not incur that much in LTC expenses for that month, the unused portion must remain as unused but can be drawn out in the 51st month up to the equivalent of that two percent amount. If unused amounts still remain, they can be used in the 52nd month, then the 53rd month, and so on. In other words, the full amount of the death benefit can be used to pay for insured eligible expenses but, in this case, can never exceed the two percent amount in any given month. It is important to remember that every dollar drawn out for LTC purposes reduces the death benefit dollar-for-dollar. Available alternatives include the right to draw one percent per month for 100 months to pay for eligible expenses, two percent for 50 months described previously, or four percent per month for 25 months. In each case, if the full amount is drawn out for the full number of months, 100 percent of the death benefit will be consumed, and there will be nothing left for the beneficiary at the death of the insured. One does not have to place a claim for benefits as eligible expenses are incurred, perhaps choosing to leave the death benefit intact as long as possible for the benefit of the heirs. This benefit cannot be added to existing policies but is only available in policies that are designed to allow this benefit. It took a change in tax law to enable this benefit because previously, the only way to access benefits from a policy during lifetime was through loans or withdrawals from the cash value. This had potential income tax consequences. Under the new law, the whole death benefit, not just the lower cash value, can be reached. And, again, no tax is levied on amounts withdrawn for LTC purposes. J. Brendan Ryan is a Cincinnati insurance agent. He can be reached at email@example.com.

ISLAND SUN JULY 20, 201838 Doctor and DieticianMood Boostersby Ross Hauser, MD and Marion Hauser, MS, RDLife can be stressful, and sometimes it is downright difficult. But there are many ways to stimulate your senses that can boost your mood or that of your loved one. Spending time outdoors tends to be an excellent mood booster. Take a stroll through a nature preserve or botanical garden, or get your hands dirty in your own garden. Physical exercise can also significantly improve mood by regulating the chemicals in the brain, like dopamine and serotonin. With diet, the secret to happiness is choosing healthy fats. People who consume higher amounts of essential fatty acids, like those in olive oil, salmon and walnuts, are less likely to be depressed. To excite the artistic part of the brain, playing your favorite music or visiting an art gallery can do the trick. Loneliness isnt just a bummer, its actually not good for your health, and can be just as dangerous as smoking, obesity or a sedentary lifestyle. Whereas people with a network of friends stay more active and even live longer. Good friends can encourage you to make better choices and decrease depression. When youre feeling down, a phone call or meet up with a friend helps you to feel connected. Social interaction is good for your heart, digestion and immune system. It heals your mind and your body, combatting illness and stress. Healing touch can also improve mood, and provide a sense of wellbeing. Therapies like massage or reflexology are rejuvenating options, but do not underestimate the power of something as simple as a hug from a loved one after a hard day. When your mood takes a nosedive, go for a walk with a friend or give them a call and put a smile back on your face. Just that smile alone can give you some feel-good endorphins.

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.

SUN deaRPharmacistAmazing Facts About Nightmares And Dreamingby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Readers: Sleeping is one of the great pleasures in life, unless you have bad dreams or nightmares. Then its pure misery. Most of us do dream while sleeping, we just dont remember it. Luckily, a man named Larry Page remembered his dream. He was a computer scientist and he woke up from a dream when he was 23, wondering if there was a way to download the web and rank webpages by inbound links. He went on to become a co-founder of Google. Pages net worth, according to Forbes is $52 billion. Talk about making money when you sleep! So why cant you remember your dreams? Our brains are trained to forget non-essential facts and the truth is, most of our dreams arent that unique. But I bet you do wake up and recall the bizarre scary dreams, dont you? This is because your brain finds it more essential to remember these strange or scary images. They stand out. Here are some other little known facts about dreaming that you may be interested in. By the way, if youd like a longer version of this article, its at my website. If you lost sight later in life, you can still see images in your dreams and dream visually like when you had your eyesight. Those folks who were born with blindness may not see in pictures but can still dream and experience sounds, touch sensations and emotions during their dream state. With Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), several brain regions are involved including the amygdala where dopamine, norepinephrine and serotonin play a role. PTSD nightmares may occur with or without REM sleep. If you have asthma, for some reason, you are also more prone to nightmares. The bad dreams can intensify with many treatments, including montelukast. Heartburn medications such as ranitidine and famotidine used to treat heartburn can sometimes induce vivid dreams and nightmares. So can allergy drugs like diphenhydramine. Blood pressure pills interfere with sleep. This category has welldocumented evidence to show how they trigger nightmares and this side effect alone often causes people to seek other treatments. If you grew up with black and white TVs, most of your dreams occur in black and white. Anxiety is the most common emotion during dreams. You might experience it as falling, flying or feeling unprepared or humiliated in your dream. Dogs dream. You will often hear them whimper or see their paws twitching. More than likely they are running in their dreams. Sleeping pills can and often due induce vivid dreaming and nightmares. Withdrawal from these medications can also induce higher dreaming and/or nightmares for a period of time. Antidepressants such as fluoxetine and paroxetine increase serotonin and may trigger intense or disturbing dreams that seem to go on all night. Some sleep supplements containing melatonin might trigger unpleasant or bizarre dreams. If that happens, take a break from the melatonin because the dose might be too high. Remember, you make this sleep hormone yourself so supplementing has an additive effect. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: Can you explain what is the true self?A: The true self is an authentic voice deep within you at your core essence, if you will, that guides you how to live your life authentically and genuinely. It is your way of living your life through listening to your inner guidance system, which will never lead you astray. I have heard the true self being called the I of the hurricane, that calm at the center of the storm. When we were born as whole beings, we all lived from our true selves. It was a natural phenomenon, i.e., crying when hungry, held when we needed to feel safe, smiled freely, fell asleep when we were tired. In essence, we were living from our true authentic self. As we go through developmental stages early on, we are programmed to certain beliefs that are not necessarily our own true authentic beliefs, rather what others tell us. So as we began to individuate, which occurs during the primary developmental preschool years, we began to realize we were separate beings from those others who provided our care. Some individuals learned that their needs were less important than those of others, mainly bigger, more powerful others. As a result, those individuals may have learned to stop asking for their needs to be met and hid their true selves deep inside. Some learned to hide their true selves in order to be safe and even survive. Others hid their true selves to be good, and get the necessary approval and affection to meet their basic needs.

CLASSIFIED CLASSIFIED www.islandsunnews.com PLACE CLASSIFIED ISLAND SUN JULY 20, 201846 ANNUAL RENTAL 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 20, 2018 My Stars FOR WEEK OF JULY 23, 2018Aries (March 21 to April 19) Your zeal for challenges usually works well for you. But this week its best to avoid jumping into new situations without more information. Vital news emerges by the weekend. Taurus (April 20 to May 20) Once again, the Bovines patience pays off as that pesky problem works itself out without taking too much of your valuable time. A new task opens interesting possibilities. Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Those suggestions you want to share need to be set aside for a while so you can focus on the job at hand. Therell be time later to put your ideas into a workable format. Cancer (June 21 to July 22) Be sure about your sources before you use the information in any decision you reach about your new project. Some of the data might be out of date or misinterpreted. Leo (July 23 to August 22) A sudden challenge might rattle you at first. But pump up that strong Lions heart with a full measure of courage, and face it with the continuing support of family and friends. Virgo (August 23 to September 22) Watch your expenses this week so you can have a financial cushion to fall back on should things tighten up later this month. Money matters ease by the 1st. Libra (September 23 to October 22) Uncertainty over workplace policy creates anxiety and confusion among your colleagues. Dont be surprised if youre asked, once again, to help work things out. Scorpio (October 23 to November 21) The workweek keeps you busy tying up loose ends and checking data that needs to be verified. The weekend offers a chance to relax and restore your spent energies. Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21) This is not the best time to go to extremes to prove a point. Better to set a sensible goal now and move forward. Therell be time later to take the bolder course. Capricorn (December 22 to January 19) A step-by-step progression is the better way to move ahead. Taking shortcuts could be risky at this time. Important news arrives on the 1st. Aquarius (January 20 to February 18) Avoid getting drawn into workplace disputes that should be handled by those directly involved. Instead, spend your energy developing those new ideas. Pisces (February 19 to March 20) You still need to be prudent about money matters. But things start to ease by the end of the week. A weekend encounter with an old friend brings welcome news. Born This Week: You handle challenging situations with boldness when necessary and caution when called for. It was American astronomer, astrophysicist and author Carl Sagan who made the following sage observation: The fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the Wright brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown. Its not clear why lawmakers in the state of Alabama once thought it necessary to pass a law forbidding the operation of a vehicle while wearing a blindfold. Though coffee has been around for about 700 years, instant coffee wasnt invented until 1906. By George Washington. Of course not that George Washington. The man who made coffee more convenient and less palatable was from Belgium. There seems to be quite a rivalry between the towns of Rosehill, North Carolina, and Wilmington, Delaware. Both locales claim to be the home of the worlds largest frying pan, with a diameter of 10 feet. This begs some questions, of course: How many eggs are being fried at once to require such a large piece of cookware? And what sort of stove is required to heat such a mammoth pan? If youre like the average American, youll eat about 35,000 cookies in your lifetime. Those who study such things say that 70 percent of southern Nevadas water use goes through the sprinklers for golf courses and lawns in Las Vegas. Its not surprising that the word fondue comes from the French verb fondre, which means to melt. Do you know anyone who is xanthodontous? If so, you might want to refer them to someone specializing in cosmetic dentistry. Xanthodontous means having yellow teeth. Laughter is a form of internal jogging.
