And with the start of the 2018-19 school year, The Sanibel School has introduced several new members of the teaching faculty, including Greg Bergamo (ESE and intervention specialist), Joe Camputaro (grade 4), Ann Christoff (physical education assistant), Linda Cummings (speech and language ESE), Michelle Hueck (grades K to 8 gifted), JP Martin (grades 6 to 8 language arts), Daryl Peters (kindergarten) and Mina SocarrasDaegling (grades K to 8 Spanish). One of the rookie instructors, Peters, is an alumni of The Sanibel School. A lot of things look familiar to me, but there are quite a few things that are new since Ive been here, said the kindergarten instructor. It feels kinda nostalgic. One of the highlights of her first day back at the kindergarten to eighth grade facility was learning that one of her former teachers, Julie Wappas, was still on staff. I feel like its gonna be easy for me to take instructions from her, she added with a laugh. Another newcomer to The Sanibel School team, Socarras-Daegling, isnt new to the teaching profession. In fact, the Spanish language instructor studied under Rosa Inclan, an educator who developed the ESOL (English as a second language) program in Miami back in 1988, the first in the United States. Ive been teaching bilingual classes my entire career, Socarras-Daegling noted. But Im also a documentary filmmaker and I teach guitar in my spare time. Being here is like a dream come true. One of the new fourth grade teachers, Camputaro offered that he enjoys watching the evolving personalities of continued on page 16 New faculty members at The Sanibel School this year include, from left, Michelle Heuck, JP Martin, Daryl Peters, Linda Cummings, Greg Bergamo, Mina Socarras-Daegling and Joe Camputaro photo by Jeff LysiakCROW To Host Walk On The Wild Side At Lakes Parkby Jeff LysiakWith the hopes of increasing awareness about the importance of a harmonious relationship between humans living in Southwest Florida and local wildlife, the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) will host an open house-style event Walk on the Wild Side at Lakes Regional Park in Fort Myers on Saturday, August 25 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The family-friendly event is free and open to the public. According to JoEllen Urasky, CROW operations/business manager, the threehour gala will include presentations on wildlife-related topics, recycled material craft projects and educational encounters with some of CROWs animal ambassadors. One of the primary goals of the friend-raiser is to teach residents, who live off-island and might not be aware of the wildlife hospitals purpose, about their work treating sick and injured wildlife, the latest in conservation medicine and why this is important for the health of our ecosystem and our community. Weve held Walk on the Wild Side in the past, but not since 2012, and never before off-island, said Urasky. So we decided that wed revamp it a little. We found a great space inside Lakes Park and hope it draws a good crowd. Sponsored in part by Lee County Parks and Recreation, Walk on the Wild Side activities will include a self-guided walk around a field, where participants young and old will learn fun and interesting facts about local wildlife. After completing the course, participants will fill out a questionnaire for a chance to win small prizes. Throughout the walk, visitors will stop at stations offering a variety of subjects continued on page 5 From left, CROW staff members Brian Bohlman, Tina Flannery, Mary Schoeffel, JoEllen Urasky, Cheryl McCormick and Rachel Rainbolt preparing for Walk on the Wild Side, to be held on August 25 photo by Jeff Lysiak

The movie is based on the life of MercyMe lead singer Bart Millard. According to Millard, the lyrics to the song took only minutes to write, but a lifetime to craft. It is a compelling story of a boy in a troubled home with a broken relationship with his father that fueled his dream for the music industry. According to the movie website, Growing up in Greenville, Texas, Bart Millard suffers physical and emotional abuse at the hands of his father, Arthur. When Arthur becomes terminally ill, he finds redemption by embracing his faith and rediscovering his love for his son. Years later, Barts troubled childhood and mended relationship with his dad inspired him to write the hit song I Can Only Imagine as singer of the Christian band MercyMe. The movie beautifully illustrates the power of forgiveness and that no one is ever too far from Gods love. I Can Only Imagine is a movie the whole family can enjoy. A love offering will be received for Florida Baptist Childrens Homes. Free hot dogs and drinks will be served beginning at 4:30 p.m. Sanibel Community Church is an evangelical, non-denominational congregation, located at 1740 Periwinkle Way.

Submitted by the owners of Sanibel Sunset Beach Resort, commissioners considered a proposal to overhaul the existing resort property, demolishing and removing all existing structures (including the hotel buildings, swimming pool and deck, tennis court, shuffleboard courts and parking areas) in order to redevelop the property with a new three-story, 46-unit resort hotel (including a single non-resort unit), a new swimming pool, driveway and parking areas, and beach boardwalk. The project also includes a stormwater retention system, new landscaping and associated site improvements. The applicant is also proposing to provide a restaurant with a tiki bar, and approximately 200 square feet of retail sales of food items and sundries, onsite spa/fitness facilities, and provisions for beach equipment (including bikes, boats, beach chairs and umbrellas), all accessible to and available to only owners or guests of the resort hotel, the citys planning department staff report reads, in part. According to Michael Sheeley, president of Lotus Architecture, his firm has been working on the project for more than two years. He also noted that after working cooperatively with members of the citys planning, building, public works and natural resources departments during the past 12 months, they were presenting a plan he considered top notch. Roy Gibson, senior planner for the city, presented the planning department staff report to the seven-member commission. He explained that redevelopment plans for the resort will eliminate all existing nonconformities that currently exist on the property, with the exception of intensity which is allowed to remain at the existing number of units (46 including one non-resort unit.) Following his brief presentation, Gibson listed the 13 conditions the planning department staff was recommending for approval. They included guidelines for the proposed boardwalk to be redesigned from the previously submitted design in order to minimize impacts to existing native dune vegetation, a limit of 80 seats for the proposed restaurant and tiki bar, plus revising the parking plan to include landscaping that allows no more than 10 continuous parking spaces. With no public comment from the audience at MacKenzie Hall, commissioners requested a motion on the application. Commissioner Chuck Ketteman motioned for the development and conditional use permits to be approved, which was seconded by Commission Chair Dr. Phillip Marks. They were approved unanimously, 7 to 0. Commissioner Richard Johnson called the resort redevelopment plan a complicated project that was worked out well before today, while Commissioner Karen Storjohann voted with an enthusiastic yes. Prior to discussions on Sanibel Sunset Beach Resort, planners approved a number of applications for accessory marine structures, all of which required a variance. They included: A variance to install a new boat lift to extend waterward of an existing dock farther than the maximum permitted waterward extension limit at 923 South Yachtsman Drive; a development permit to construct a 4x8-foot addition to an existing dock, installing a four-pile boat lift and a 5x12-foot floating PWC lift, and dredging approximately 260 cubic yards of material from the bottom of the canal surrounding the dock and boat lifts, all accessory to an existing single-family residence. A variance to construct a boat dock and two boat lifts closer than 15 feet from the southerly side yard property line at 825 Limpet Drive; a development permit to construct a boat dock, two boat lifts, and dredging approximately 50 cubic yards of material from the bottom of the canal surrounding the dock and boat lifts, all accessory to a single-family residence. A variance to install a new boat lift to extend waterward of an existing dock farther than the maximum permitted waterward extension limit at 558 North Yachtsman Drive. A variance to install a new boat lift to extend waterward of an existing dock farther than the maximum permitted waterward extension limit at 605 Lighthouse Way. The variance was granted with the condition that the homeowners would consult with the citys natural resources department to arrange a maintenance schedule for mangroves at the property. Three of the four applications passed unanimously, with Commissioner Roger Grogman casting the lone dissenting vote on the 558 North Yachtsman Drive variance request.

Mosquito Control On The IslandsThe Lee County Mosquito Control District (LCMCD) provides mosquito control for Sanibel and all of Lee County. Mosquito Season typically runs from May through October, and mosquito activity increases with rain, particularly after heavy rains that produce large areas of standing water. Due to the abundance of mangroves, wetlands and salt marshes, Sanibel is a prime breeding ground for mosquitoes. If you are experiencing a high number of mosquitoes at your residence, make a service request by calling LCMCD directly at 694-2174. If the LCMCD receives complaints from a specific area or neighborhood, the district dispatches personnel to conduct a mosquito count and, if warranted, will fog or spray the area.

Plant SmartWomans Tongueby Gerri ReavesWomans tongue ( Albizia lebbeck ) is a deciduous tree native to tropical Asia and northern Australia. This member of the pea family was introduced to Florida in 1883 both as an ornamental tree and for agricultural purposes. Other common names include raom tree, soros-tree and Indian siris tree. Decades ago, it was used as a shade tree and recommended for the home landscape. Fast-growing with pretty flowers, it grows as tall as 100 feet. The pale bark is corky and flaky. The tree escaped cultivation, however, and is now listed by the Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council as a category-I invasive species. The council describes such species as altering native plant communities by displacing native species, changing community structures or ecological functions, or hybridizing with natives. The categorization is based on the documented ecological damage caused. If this tree is in your landscape, consider replacing it with a suitable native tree. The alternate leaves are twice compound, or twice divided, and have a featheror fern-like structure. They are divided into two to five pairs of pinnae, which in turn are divided into three to 10 pairs of oblong leaflets that are an inch or two long. The dull green leaves have paler undersides, and the leaflets fold at night. The trees ornamental value derives not only from the pretty foliage but from the clusters of showy creamy white or greenish flowers with many long stamens. Globular, fragrant and fluffy, they appear on stalks near the stem ends. The tree strongly resembles its pretty relative, mimosa ( Albizia julibrissin ), or silktree, another category-I invasive in Florida. However, the latter has smaller leaflets and pink flowers. Womans tongues odd common name, as well as the alternative name rattlepod, is inspired by the flat papery seed pods, which remain on the tree for months and rattle in the wind when dry. The narrow oblong pods measure up to a foot long and contain three to 12 flat brown seeds. In other parts of the world, the tree is used for livestock feed, and the wood is used for a variety of purposes. In addition to being invasive, this breaks in strong wind and seedlings tend to take over an area. Sources: Florida Landscape Plants by John V. Watkins and Thomas J.

Red Tide Is Gradually Pushing Outby Capt. Matt MitchellWhat a difference a week has made for Pine Island Sound and our surrounding waters. Prevailing southeast winds helped push the stench and floating dead fish out into the Gulf. Although there are still areas of small dead fish floating on lines in the sound, the water has generally cleaned up. Fishing is far from back to normal and will take at least a few weeks to hopefully fully recover. I was out on the water for only three charters this week, and it was strange to see almost zero other boats out. Running north at the beginning of the week, we had no problem finding some nonstop mangrove snapper action while targeting deeper structure in the sound. Along with the mangrove snapper, we have also been catching some small gag grouper in these same locations. Water in the northern sound is really clear in places with the bottom being visible in many of locations in up to seven to even eight feet of water. Unfortunately, I still have been unable to locate any shiners so all of my fishing has been with live shrimp which is something totally new for me during this time of year. Luckily, for some reason, the live shrimp over the past week have been larger than our usual summer time bait shrimp. Light gear and terminal tackle has been key to catching fish. As the week progressed, I gradually started working my way back to the south and trying places I had success prior to this red tide. Certain places were really good, while other areas were simply void of any life. Southern Matlacha Pass proved a great area to catch fish while other locations in the southern end of Pine Island Sound remained a dead zone. Running the whole gulf side of Sanibel and coming back in through Blind Pass one day mid-week, I noticed there were very few floating fish out along the beaches though also no bird or bait activity. Once inside Blind Pass as I moved back into the sound, I did spot several large rafts of threadfin herring, which is a great sign that our water quality in this area is getting a whole lot better. It should only be a matter of time before we are back to the daily shiner fishing we are used to. Despite the far from normal conditions we have been dealing with, it just feels good to get out and catch some fish with all of the death we have been dealing with. Even though the fishing is not what it should be, my clients have all been happy catching limits of quality mangrove snapper specially when they have had such low expectations after watching the news. 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 WeekBay Scallopby Jos H. Leal, PhD, BaileyMatthews National Shell Museum Science Director and CuratorTo celebrate the upcoming 2018 Pine Island Sound Scallop Search (August 18, 2018), organized by the University of Floridas Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences in conjunction with the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation, I present the Bay Scallop, Argopecten irradians (Lamarck, 1891), one of the most common species of the family Pectinidae in Southwest Florida. Its shell can reach 75 mm (about 3 inches) in size, and the valves show almost the same degree of convexity, with the lower valve (the light-colored one), slightly more convex than the upper one. The upper valve can be lightor dark-gray, or brownish. The species lives in seagrass beds, mostly in protected bays. The Bay Scallop was the subject of an important fishery along the East Coast of the United States, but nowadays populations of the species have dwindled, probably due to the decline of seagrass beds, which challenged the viability and caused the collapse of the Bay Scallop fishery. Do not confuse with the Calico Scallop, Argopecten gibbus, which is a smaller, more colorful species. Learn more about the species at www. shellmuseum.org/southwest-florida-shells and www.shellmuseum.org/blog. Shell Museum Events See truly giant shells. Watch a live Tank Talk.

CROW Case Of The Week: Eastern Screech Owl by Bob PetcherThe eastern screech owl ( Megascops asio) can be called a master of disguise. The short, stocky bird is more often heard than seen due to its ability to hide well. Many bird watchers know this species of owl from its trilling or whinnying sounds. Eastern screech owls are either mostly gray or reddish-brown. These colors, coupled with the patterns of complex bands and spots, provide the owl great camouflage against tree bark, usually when napping at the entrance to its home in a tree cavity. At CROW, an adult eastern screech owl was admitted to the hospital from Captiva after it was noted to be hopping around and falling on its face. During the intake exam, veterinarians found the owl to have a complete, open fracture of its left humerus with displacement, but no other injuries. When describing fractures, there are several components used to assess the severity and determine a prognosis. In this screech owls case, there was a complete fracture, meaning that the bone was completely broken. This fracture was also a simple fracture in the sense that there are only two pieces, however, the fracture itself was shaped like a spiral which complicated the fixation, said Dr. Kyle Abbott, CROW veterinary intern. Fractures with multiple pieces are called compound fractures and can be much harder to repair. The other significant thing about this fracture is that it was an open fracture, meaning there were wounds through the skin that led to contamination of the bones. These can be more prone to continued infection, so antibiotics are essential for treatment. Two days after admittance, CROW medical staff performed surgery to place pins to stabilize the fracture. Before the pins could be placed, the displaced ends of the bones were aligned. Once aligned, an intramedullary (IM) was placed with a single cross pin in each piece of the fractured bone. The proper placement of the pins was confirmed using x-rays. They were held in place with a small tube filled with orthodontic resin. A topical antibiotic cream was applied before non-adherent dressing and bandages were placed around the fixations. This surgery was challenging due to the spiral shape of the fracture and because the bones of this screech owl are so small. The surgery went well despite these challenges. A metal pin was placed down the internal shaft of the bone, called an intramedullary pin. This intramedullary pin aligns the pieces of the bone. After this, more pins were placed in each piece of the bone, called cross pins. These cross pins run perpendicular to the intramedullary pin and prevent rotation of the bone pieces, said Dr. Abbott. Once these components are placed, they are connected in a rigid fashion outside of the body. There are many materials that can be used for this. In this patient, we used a rubber tube filled with orthodontic cement to connect the cross pins. This is a type of fracture stabilization called an external fixator, which is commonly used in avian patients. Dr. Abbott said x-rays were also used after pin placement to confirm the pins are located where they need to be prior to stabilizing everything in place. Yet another set of x-rays was taken to ensure the pieces were aligned for healing. The owl was then fitted with a body wrap to secure its wing against its body. The patient is placed in a body wrap for a few days to hold the wing against the body and prevent motion, said Dr. Abbott. This allows for the soft tissue swelling to reduce and for the wounds in the skin to be kept still while healing. After a few days, the body wrap is removed. Nearly two weeks after surgery, the patient is undergoing rehabilitation. Dr. Abbott said, We will continue to assess this screech owl every few days and perform physical therapy on the wing. Right now, physical therapy is going well. Every other week, x-rays will be taken to ensure healing is appropriate. After a few weeks, the fracture should be stable enough to allow for increased activity. Typically, within a couple months, the fracture has stabilized and the patient has regained the strength necessary to be released.

From page 1Sanibel Schoolchildren in his classes.Its incredible when you see their personalities come through, he said. Especially when you see them start to take more pride in their work and leadership in the school. After only one day of classes, Camputaro said that he was very impressed with the National Blue Ribbon Award-winning school. This place has such a warm sense of community and camaraderie, he added. Principal Chuck Vilardi and Assistant Principal Jamie Reid shared equal enthusiasm about the coming year for The Sanibel School and the 290 students currently enrolled there. After dismissal on August 10, Vilardi noted the only bump in the road that occurred on the first day was a small baby alligator that had scurried underneath a fence near the rear of the school property. It was captured and released off grounds. Today was an amazing day, said Vilardi. One of the smoothest days in my three years here. Weve got a really great team in place very positive and cohesive, added Reid. Everybody is very supportive of what were trying to do with excellence in the classroom.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 17, 201818 Active Part Of Hurricane Season ApproachesThe City of Sanibel reminds residents that hurricane season in the Atlantic Basin (Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico) is June 1 to November 30. As shown in this NOAA graph, a storm can occur any time, however the busiest period is mid-August to mid-October. Hurricane Reentry Pass: The City of Sanibel reentry pass easily identifies who and when persons are authorized to return after an evacuation. The reentry pass program is all about safety and security, therefore getting a pass requires a short application and specific documentation. The passes are issued all year long; do not wait until a storm threatens to get one. The purple (residential) and tan (commercial) 2016 passes are still valid for 2018. People already issued those passes do not need to apply. Family Emergency Plan: Completing this pre-formatted plan makes it your familys emergency plan. An essential part of surviving a hurricane, it can also improve your quality of life during the event. The plan is on the county website at www.leeeoc.com. CodeRED: Both the city and county use this tool to send targeted emergency alerts. You can receive alerts on multiple phones such as your home and/or cell. Sign up for this free service on the city website at www.mysanibel.com (in the Quick Links on the right side). Special Needs Program: The program provides shelter from a tropical storm or hurricane for those who live in a home and/or area that isnt safe from storm surge or wind, and who have no other safe place to go. It also provides transportation to a shelter for those who do not have a way to get there. The program is available to Lee County residents at no cost, but you must pre-register every year. Application processing stops when the county enters the five-day forecast cone of a storm. Sanibel and Captiva residents should contact FISH of SanCap at 472-4775 or you can register directly with the county at www.leeeoc.com. A great resource on a variety of topics like preparations, shelters and contacts is the All Hazards Guide on the county website leeeoc.com. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) lists the entire City of Sanibel as a Special Flood Hazard Area. Floods kill almost 200 people a year in the U.S. and 50 percent of those are vehicle related.

If youre just starting out, an all-around board could be the best choice, but more advanced paddlers might want to purchase a vessel designed with a specific purpose in mind. There are a few basics to learn before you visit your local board shop. When it comes to hull shape, a wider, flatter hull will be more stable than a v-shaped displacement hull. Displacement hulls are modeled after a boat bottom, and can slice through the water for greater speed and glide. However, they are less stable. Narrow boards are generally faster, while wider boards provide stability. Standard board lengths range from about nine to 12 feet and are closely related to a paddlers size. A larger, taller paddler will usually need a longer board. A rounded nose is great for relaxed paddling on flat water, while a pointed nose is best for racing or touring long distances through choppy waves both situations where efficiency is key. Similarly, a square tail is stable, while a pointed tail is more maneuverable. There are many variations of the allaround board, but in general they are the most versatile option. They can be used for paddle surfing, calm water paddling, or SUP yoga. They are stable and can often carry a pet or a child in addition to the paddler. Racing and touring models will be thinner and pointier, and will offer more distance per paddle stroke to paddlers who value speed. When choosing a board, also consider weight. Heavy models can be durable but hard to transport, while lighter boards can sometimes be more susceptible to damage. When you are ready to shop, we recommend talking to an expert at your local board shop about your paddling plans. Ask them to suggest a few options, then request a trial session before you buy.

Activities included art and games at Sanibel Sea Schools Flagship Campus and Sundial Beach Resort & Spa location, as well as field trips to the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge visitor center and Wildlife Drive, Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) and Periwinkle Park campground. Were so grateful to everyone who invited us to visit and offered to help in other ways, Lucas added. Counselors also organized lessons to help campers better understand harmful algal blooms and why they occur. Each group collected a water sample using a plankton net, then used a microscope to look for Karenia brevis (red tide) cells. A sample collected at the Buttonwood Lane bayside beach access contained a high concentration of cells. 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. Campers visited JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge during Crocs and Gators Week at Sanibel Sea School photo provided SCCF Sea Turtle Nesting StatisticsThe Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) reported the total for strandings since red tide started at the end of last year is now up to 136. Of those, 97 have been reported since June 1, and 14 in the past seven days. According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), who has been monitoring sea turtle mortality associated with red tide since the 1990s, hatchlings are not impacted by red tide. Sea turtles are usually affected through ingestion by eating poisoned prey. Since hatchlings migrate quickly offshore and dont eat for three to seven days after hatching, the opportunity for bioaccumulation of the toxin is minimal. A total of 705 nests have been laid on the islands this year, 243 of which have hatched to date, producing 16,830 hatchlings already this season. As of August 12, 2017 Sanibel East: 156 loggerhead nests, 3 green nests, 238 loggerhead false crawls*, 0 green false crawls Sanibel West: 523 loggerhead nests, 30 green nests, 609 loggerhead false crawls*, 23 green false crawls Captiva: 188 loggerhead nests, 0 green nests, 203 loggerhead false crawls*, 1 green false crawls As of August 12, 2018 Sanibel East: 101 loggerhead nests, 0 green nests, 233 loggerhead false crawls*, 0 green false crawls Sanibel West: 233 loggerhead nests, 2 green nests, 792 loggerhead false crawls*, 0 green false crawls Captiva: 163 loggerhead nests, 0 green nesst, 25 loggerhead false crawls*, 0 green false crawls *false crawl a failed nesting attempt If you have questions or would like to know more about nesting statistics on Sanibel and Captiva, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call SCCF at 472-2329.

The fruit is typically juiced or eaten raw, but is often used in sauces, grilled or used as a topping on pizza. The skin and core of the pineapple are often used to make alcohol, vinegar and pet food. Raw pineapple is a great source of manganese and vitamins A, E and C. Pineapple also contains bromelain, which is an enzyme that breaks down protein and aids in digestion. The pineapple plant is native to South America and dates back to the early 1300s. The fruit was given its name because of its resemblance to a pine cone, not because its a pine or an apple. Christopher Columbus was credited with discovering the pineapple on the island of Guadeloupe in 1493. He took the fruit back to Europe and cultivation quickly spread. Pineapples began to be cultivated in Western Europe, but because of the high cost of building and maintaining hothouses, pineapples became a symbol of wealth. The fruit was rarely eaten, but displayed at dinner parties, repeatedly, until the fruit was rotten. By the early 1700s, pineapples became a food source and cultivation throughout Western Europe quickly grew. In fact, pineapple production on some British estates caused rivalries between aristocratic families. Pineapples were introduced to the Hawaiian Islands by Capt. James Cook around the late 1700s; however, the fruit wasnt cultivated commercially there until the mid-1800s by James Dole (founder of Dole Pineapple). Pineapples were cultivated in Florida around the early 1700s, but the fruit was rare to most Americans. Here is an interesting recipe to try: Pineapple Mango Salsa 1 cups pineapple (small dice) 1 cups mango (diced) cup red pepper (fine diced) cup red onion (fine diced) cup scallion (fine diced) 1 jalapeno pepper (seeded and fine diced) bunch cilantro (chopped) 2 limes (juiced) cup honey 1 tsp. cider vinegar Method In a large bowl, add all the ingredients and mix thoroughly. Store in an airtight container for up to three days. Resident Chef Jarred Harris heads the Culinary Education Center at The Community House on Sanibel.

Up to $10,000 in grant awards are available to districts, schools and individual teachers in Lee, Charlotte and Collier counties this school year for conservation education-related projects. Teachers in the three-county area may apply for grants up to $1,000 each to fund new classroom science projects, promote stewardship, purchase teaching aids, acquire classroom materials, and conduct work projects in their community or beyond. This year, two grants up to $3,000 are also available to schooland district-wide projects. All applicants are invited to submit conservation-related proposals by Friday, October 26. The approved proposals will be awarded this December for projects to be completed by May 2019. Our conservation grants are an important part of the societys mission to educate and create future conservation stewards from our young students of today, said Wendy Kindig, DDWS Environmental Education Committee chair. This year, we are offering two new $3,000 grants to encourage larger creative projects that will touch more students. Plus, we still offer $1,000 grants for teachers with single-class projects or smaller needs. In the past 12 years, DDWS has granted more than $80,300 to local schools for environmental projects. The teacher grants are funded by monies received from the DDWS Conservation Education Endowment Fund established by Jay Ding Darlings grandson, the late Kip Koss.

Yachtsman Dr. Sanibel Island Taste of the Islands Peoples Choice Award Winner Seven Continuous Years r fntbb frr Sanibel and Captiva Islands Most Exciting Boat Tour Circumnavigating Sanibel & Captiva Islands with Dolphins SANIBEL THRILLER CRUISES SANIBEL THRILLER CRUISES r r The Jac Reopens Under New Ownershipby Jeff LysiakReopened in late May following several months of renovations, The Jac Sanibel Island Grille & Rum Bar has welcomed back customers of the former establishment along with new curious culinary aficionados with arms wide open, along with a revamped menu thats sure to please even the most discerning diners. We had been looking for a property to open a new restaurant for a while, said owner Eve Alves, who purchased the old Jacaranda restaurant last December with her husband, Alex. Although I had never eaten there before, we both loved the location. Alves, who moved to Southwest Florida from Miami back in 2003, also owns Luna Rossa Italian Grille at Miromar Outlets in Estero. After purchasing the popular Sanibel restaurant, the couple needed to do an extensive remodel of the main building, installing a brand new, state of the art kitchen along with a refurbished dining area. Were still working on the back bar area, said Alves, who noted that the business hopes to reopen the popular island watering hole before the end of October. Inside the newly-remodeled restaurant, customers will notice a simple, rustic dcor. Farm doors, a neutral color scheme on the walls and wooden floors reflect the owners desire to create a simple, fresh look equal to the fresh first quality of The Jacs revised menu. I wasnt familiar with the old menu or concept, so when we found our new chef, we gave him full reign to create our menu, said Alves, who hired Chef Phillippe Schroeder to lead the kitchen team. Schroeder received his culinary training in San Francisco and has cooked in kitchens in California, Hawaii, Texas and Florida. I was tired of doing someone elses menu or making dishes that seem to be on menus everywhere, said Schroeder. Ive created a few unique items, but everything we do here is fresh. Fresh ingredients, and everything we serve is made in-house. Baked goods, pastas, salads, smoked meats, desserts its all made here. Among the appetizer selections are the signature House Smoked Chicken Wings (served with choice of homemade barbecue, buffalo or sweet chili sauce), Harriettes Conch Fritters, Fresh Snapper Ceviche and Jacs Spiced Pork Belly. Their clam chowder is made fresh every day. Salad offerings include the Burrata Salad (served with mixed greens, roasted heirloom tomato, apricot gastrique and grilled foccacia), Thai Crunch Salad and Watermelon Caprese. Schroeder noted that all salads are prepared fresh, clipped in the kitchen with produce bought from local purveyors. The Jac also offers a selection of sandwiches, burgers and tacos including The Captains Burger (created with a house-blended brisket, short rib and top sirloin, with bacon, The Jacs Spiced Pork Belly, smoked paprika aioli and cheese), Quinoa and Black Bean Burger and Mandarin Rum Chicken Sandwich. Among the myriad of entrees offered is the Seafood Risotto, Citrus Fettuccini and Shrimp, Pan Seared Mahi-Mahi, Drunken Short Ribs, Pan Roasted Cauliflower Steak, Grilled Skirt Steak and Club-Cut New York Strip Steak. During the daily happy hour, patrons can choose from a selection of appetizersized entrees, allowing them to sample several dishes. Those who save room for dessert can enjoy homemade Key lime tarts and The Jacs own brioche bread pudding topped with ice cream and caramel sauce. The menu includes many gluten free, dairy free and vegan options. If a customer asks for a dish catered to their special dietary needs, the chef promises to accommodate that request. We always use fresh ingredients, so Ill be able to create something thats good for everyone, Schroeder explained. continued on page 26 Chef Phillippe Schroeder and owner Eve Alves photo by Jeff Lysiak
ISLAND SUN AUGUST 17, 201824 SUN Book ReviewLove And Ruin by Di SaggauPaula McLain, the bestselling author of The Paris Wife returns to the subject of Ernest Hemingway in Love and Ruin. This novel is about his passionate, stormy marriage to Martha Gellhorn, a fiercely independent, ambitious young woman who would become one of the greatest war correspondents of the 20th century, reporting on virtually every major conflict for 60 years. Even covering the invasion of Panama at the age of 81. Meeting Hemingway was both the best and worst thing that ever happened to Gellhorn. In 1937, 28-year-old Martha Gellhorn travels alone to Madrid to report on the atrocities of the Spanish Civil War and becomes drawn to the stories of ordinary people caught in the devastating conflict. Its the adventure shes been looking for to prove herself a worthy journalist in a field dominated by men. But she also finds herself, unexpectedly falling in love with Hemingway, a man on his way to becoming a legend. On November 21, 1940 in Cheyenne, Wyoming, she becomes the third Mrs. Hemingway. Martha is independent and ambitious and her career comes first. She is determined not to be an appendage to her famous partner, and her goal is to live my own life, and not anyone elses. However, its hard not to be distracted by the presence of a handsome writer at the top of his game. In the shadow of the impending Second World War, and set against the turbulent backdrops of Madrid and Cuba, Martha and Ernests relationship and their professional careers ignite. I loved reading about Marthas friendship with Eleanor Roosevelt. When Ernest publishes For Whom the Bell Tolls they are no longer equals and Martha must make a choice: surrender to the confining demands of being a famous mans wife or risk losing Ernest by forging a path as her own woman and writer. It is a dilemma that could force her to break his heart, and hers. Love and Ruin captures Gellhorn as a heroine for the ages: a woman who will risk absolutely everything to find her own voice. I consider this is a great book club read. Mine will discuss it soon. image provided School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Readers, Getting a new school year off to a good start can influence childrens attitude, confidence and performance both socially and academically. The transition from summer to school can be difficult for both children and parents. Even children who are eager to return to class must adjust to the greater levels of activity, structure and, for some, pressures associated with school life. The degree of adjustment depends on the child, but parents can help their children (and the rest of the family) manage the increased pace of life by planning ahead, being realistic and maintaining a positive attitude. Here are a few suggestions, from the National Association of School Psychologists, to help ease the transition and promote a successful school experience. The First Weeks: Clear your own schedule To the extent possible, postpone business trips, volunteer meetings and extra projects. You want to be free to help your children acclimate to the school routine and overcome the confusion or anxiety that many children experience at the start of a new school year. Make lunches the night before school Older children should help or make their own. Give them the option to buy lunch in school if they prefer and finances permit. Set alarm clocks Have school-age children set their own alarm clocks to get up in the morning. Praise them for prompt response to morning schedules and bus pickups. Leave plenty of extra time Make sure your children have plenty of time to get up, eat breakfast and get to school. For very young children taking the bus, pin to their shirt or backpack an index card with pertinent information, including their teachers name and bus number, as well as daytime contact information. Prepare for after school Review with your children what to do if they get home after school and you are not there. Be very specific, particularly with young children. Put a note card in their backpack with the name(s) and number(s) of a neighbor who is home during the day as well as a number where you can be reached. If you have not already done so, have your children meet neighbor contacts to reaffirm the backup support personally. Review your childs schoolbooks Talk about what your children will be learning during the year. Share your enthusiasm for the subjects and your confidence in your childrens ability to master the content. Reinforce the natural progression of the learning process that occurs over the school year. Learning skills take time and repetition. Encourage your children to be patient, attentive and positive. Send a brief note to your childs teacher Let the teachers know that you are interested in getting regular feedback on how and what your children are doing in school. Be sure to attend back-to-school night and introduce yourself to the teachers. Find out how they like to communicate with parents (e.g., through notes, e-mail, or phone calls). Convey a sincere desire to be a partner with your childrens teachers to enhance their learning experience. Familiarize yourself with the other school professionals Make an effort to find out who in the school or district can be a resource for you and your children. Learn their roles and how best to access their help if you need them. This can include the principal and front office personnel; school psychologist, counselor, and social worker; the reading specialist, speech therapist, and school nurse; and the after-school activities coordinator. Shelley Greggs is adjunct faculty at Florida SouthWestern State College, where she teaches psychology and education courses.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 17, 201826 Poets Corner The Song Of The Oceanside Grackleby River Shields, 12 years oldGrackle. She is the cool black night against the red striped sand and summer sun. Now she sings her overlooked song, her invisible caw. that tells the story of this beach, what the sand has seen, and the ocean saw. Of the time to be and was. On a beach where no pesky seagulls fly, where the noisy waves compete, and the sand is a canvas for passersby, like the grackle with her stick-like print. A beach where one lone grackle hops away from the water. I shall leave her to her breakfast. But even when I turn away I can hear her song. Hannah Star Rogers holds an MFA from Columbia University and a PhD from Cornell University. Her writing has appeared in the Kenyon Review LA Review of Books Carolina Quarterly and Southern Womens Review We invite submissions from local poets. Anyone interested may submit their work via email to Islandsunpoetry@ gmail.com. Each week, an individual poem will be showcased. Author Earns Presidents AwardOn August 4, the Florida Authors & Publishers Association (FAPA) awarded its prestigious annual Presidents Book Award to DL Havlin and Taylor and Seale Publishing for the novel The Bait Man. At the event, which took place at the Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace, authors were recognized with gold, silver or bronze medals for outstanding books. Forty-five book categories ranging from childrens books to adult fiction, memoirs to self-help, and business books to e-books were evaluated. FAPA recognizes both independent and traditionally-published books. All medals are awarded based on a points system in the judging of books. The judges for the program are librarians, educators and publishing professionals. The 2018 Presidents Book Award winners exemplify excellence in the publishing world. This year, we had the largest number of books ever submitted. FAPA is proud to recognize and celebrate these dedicated and talented authors, said Angelina Assanti, FAPA president. Havlin grew up in Florida and many of his novels are Florida-based. He has been a featured guest at the Sanibel Shell Festival Authors Table. DL Havlin photos provided From page 23The Jac ReopensWe also change our menu with the seasons. In the fall, were adding dishes featuring pumpkin, squash and some root vegetables. Since reopening under the new name, both Alves and Schroeder report a very positive response from the community, estimating over 70 percent of the people have great reactions to the new menu. Wed like to invite people to stop in, enjoy some drinks and appetizers, hang out with a few friends and have a great dinner, said Alves. Then after dinner, relax at the bar and enjoy some live music. Our goal isnt to be the same old Sanibel restaurant. We want people to come here and try a few new things. One of the new offerings next month at The Jac will be a bourbon dinner, where guests will sample a variety of specially selected bourbons paired with appetizers prepared for the one night only event. The evening will also include educational lectures by bourbon experts, raffles and other activities. Reservations for the 6 p.m. event on Wednesday, September 26 can be made by calling the restaurant. Both Eve and I grew up in families that would sit down and have a meal together, said Schroeder. Thats why I like to see people come here with family and friends, enjoy a meal and talk with each other. Its a real dining experience. Try us out and I guarantee youll leave with a smile on your face, added Alves. Everything (Schroeder) creates is phenomenal! The Jac Sanibel Island Grille & Rum Bar is located at 1223 Periwinkle Way.

Island-themed pendants photo provided End Of Summer Party At LibraryChildren participating in the Summer Reading program can turn in their reading logs and claim earned books until August 25. The Donut Dropin end of summer party will be held on Saturday, August 25 from 10 a.m. to noon. Youth Services Librarian Deanna Evans said, If you havent picked up the books youve earned from Summer Reading, this is your last chance. If you didnt participate, do drop in anyway and check out a book, and check out the new space. No registration required and no additional cost to attend the party. Children from babies to teen participated the reading program. As in years past, they read to earn books for themselves and for patients at Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida. Children who participated in the program can choose books to keep for their own library. The Sanibel Public Library Foundation matches each book earned with a book for the hospital. Since its inception in 2012, young readers have helped to contribute more than 6,000 books to the hospital. Summer reading helps prevent the summer slide, the loss of gains the kids have made during the previous school year, said Evans. Local readers as well as visitors from all over the world participated. Locals and visitors logged reading time and activities via paper or online with Beanstack, which is now offered as a smartphone app. Beanstack is for adults and children. It not only logs reading time, but also delivers personalized book recommendations. Sanibel Public Library cards are available to all residents of Sanibel and Lee County at no charge.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 17, 201832 Phone: (239)489.0442 Email: email@example.com www.gregweglarz.comState Certi ed General Contractor License # CGC A05420One Builder Serving Sanibel & Captiva for over 35 years Custom Residential Construction Remodeling Projects Design Team with Construction Drawings Plans Through Completion of Project Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellWith our new Rotary year now under way and with the announcement of our Rotary International presidents motto for the year, Be the Inspiration, Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club President John Danner deemed that our club will be the inspiration in a number of ways. Rotary programs will be specifically designed to inspire young people, giving them an opportunity to unlock their potential, develop their skills and broaden their horizons. Programs this year will include sponsorship of inbound and outbound Rotary Youth Exchange students. For secondary school students, there will be a new Interact Club at The Sanibel School for middle school youth to discover the power of volunteering and social action. A Rotaract Club at Florida SouthWestern State College will be reestablished to help young people contribute to the community and learn about professional development. Sanibel-Captiva Rotary also is awarding four college scholarships this academic year. These awards will be announced soon. Just last week, the Rotary Youth Exchange student from Taiwan arrived in the U.S. It was a long complex journey with delayed flights, canceled flights and redirected flights. But finally, 15-year-old Li-sen (Lee-Sin) Chou (Chow) arrived not in Fort Myers as planned, but in Miami. The club thanks his amazing host family Liz and John Van de Velde and son Ian for driving over to Miami and picking him up. Ian is our outgoing exchange student and left for Taiwan this week. More news on these two students will be coming in the next few months. Now on to another topic for Rotary last Friday. The week was laden with bad news about the water quality and beach conditions surrounding our islands; the green algae, red tide, dead fish and sea animals, and toxic air have certainly stained our islands reputation of an environmentally clean and beautiful place to live and visit. Hopefully, Mother Nature will provide relief and our politicians will heed the warning and finally get the green message in a bottle that there has been a serious assault on our environment, and start working together toward a solution before it is too late. With that being said, our guest speaker last Friday morning, Lesli Haynes, Lee County senior environmental specialist, Lee County Division of Natural ResourcesMarine Services, had some positive news regarding our waterways and the artificial reef program for Lee County. Haynes responsibilities do not involve the handling of the current crisis in our waterways. Her office deals with abandoned and derelict vessels, aids to navigation and the artificial reefs program. The county spent $100,000 in 2017 to legally remove abandoned and derelict vessels from our countys waterways. The cost is extremely high, and removal can not take place until ownership of the vessel is researched and either established or proven to be abandoned. This takes months, and sometimes years to complete. There are approximately 50 boat removals per year for our waterways. Anyone who is a boater knows the importance of using navigational charts to cruise any waterways. Aids to navigation, commonly called channel markers, and uniform waterway markers are in place throughout the waters of Lee County for boating safety purposes. Boaters need to keep a sharp lookout at all times and learn to recognize waterway markers and understand what they mean. Shifts of waterway markers and damage happen regularly and Haynes department is responsible for the maintenance of all navigational signage and equipment. The department regularly inspects the signs but does count on boaters to report any trouble with the navigational markers. This is for the safety of everyone on and below the surface of our water. Now on to the good news I promised you earlier in the column; Lee Countys Artificial Reefs Program. Haynes told us that Lee County manages a network of artificial reef sites from Charlotte Harbor to 30 miles offshore. Currently in place are 20 artificial reefs made from concrete culverts, sunken ships, railroad hopper cars, barges, bridge rubble, tires and cement mixer drums, and the outstanding placement of the USS Mohawk artificial reef in 2012. The health and well being of these reefs are outstanding. Quoting from the Lee County Artificial Reefs booklet, Residents and visitors can explore all the splendor of the areas thriving reef community through safe and responsible boating, diving, fishing and snorkeling. A question was brought up regarding the effect red tide and green algae are having on the artificial reefs. Haynes answer was extremely welcomed: No real damage indicated at this time. Surface pollution does not seem to be affecting the reefs. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets Friday mornings at 7 a.m. at The Dunes Golf & Tennis Club. Guests are welcome.

Not only a functional factor, window treatments are an accessory that can completely transform a room, giving it more depth, character and coziness. Window treatments offer the perfect opportunity to express personal style and make a room feel more complete. Choosing the right option for windows takes time, thought and effort. You cant just throw sheers into any room, and you certainly shouldnt opt for honeycomb shades as your only option around the house. To complete each room with a set of window treatments, one needs to consider each rooms theme, purpose, style and level of required privacy. Before dressing windows in any standard option, consider the following in choosing the perfect treatments. Rushing to the store and purchasing a set of window treatments solely for the way they look is strongly discouraged. Assess all windows in your house and make treatment decisions based on the purpose of each room. All the spaces in a home are meant for something different, and that means youll need to explore different types of window treatments as well. For instance, you likely want the bedroom to be dark and dimly lit since its made for resting, so a set of roomdarkening curtains make most sense. A room that thrives off natural light, such as the home office or living room, can use a beautiful set of sheers. In the bathroom, where you need privacy and solitude, honeycomb shades, which block little light but offer total privacy, are a viable option. The style and color of treatments should complement the rooms existing theme. If youre a fan of pattern and texture, this is an opportunity to go wild and make a statement. On the opposite side of the spectrum, choose a neutrally toned set of window treatments to balance the room out. Keep in mind that you also need to purchase curtain rods and should be mindful of style there, as well. This is a simple task that can make or break your desired outcome. Choosing a set of window treatments based on the purpose and character of each room in your home seems like a simple task, but it can be difficult to complement your space correctly. Have no fear, you dont have to take care of this statement-making task on your own. A design professional can lend a helping hand. Marcia Feeney is an interior designer on Sanibel/Captiva Islands.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 17, 201834 Names are important. A little boy named Wilfred today, compared to in the past, may have to quickly learn how to defend himself on the school playground. Companies spend millions of dollars coming up with just the right name for their new products. Weve all heard of how Chevrolet had a hard time selling its Nova automobile in Latin America. GM executives puzzled over the difficulty until they realized what no va means in Spanish it doesnt go! Names are also important in estate planning. How an account is titled can mean the difference between whether a probate administration is going to be required on the account owners death or not. Assume that John Smith has his estate planning attorney prepare a revocable living trust. The attorney doesnt ask John about his specific accounts, but gives John a sheet describing how his accounts should be titled. John notices at the end of his revocable living trust is a sheet of paper entitled Schedule A Trust Assets. So John gets to work. He starts by typing all his account information on that Schedule A. He lists his bank accounts and his brokerage accounts. Someone tells him that he should put all his real property into his trust, so he takes his Schedule A and adds to it the addresses of all real estate he owns. Do you think that John has properly aligned his assets with his trust? By aligning assets, I mean transferring title to all of the assets that would have been subject to probate at his death if they are not titled into his trust? If you said No he has not properly transferred the title to his assets, then you would be correct. To properly transfer title to your accounts into your trust the account title its name must change. Instead of the bank statement titled in the name of John Smith, it should be titled in the name of John Smith, Trustee for the John Smith Trust dated August 1, 2018. The same holds true with Johns brokerage accounts and his deeds. He needs to work with his brokerage firms to make sure that he renames his account into the name of his trust. This usually means that he must fill out some paperwork with the financial institution. John continues to use his social security number as his tax identification number for the accounts since his revocable living trust is deemed a grantor trust under the IRS tax code. In other words, the trust is invisible to the IRS during Johns lifetime. He continues to file his tax returns as if he does not have a trust. How about the deeds to his real property? Those need to be changed too. Here, John would be well advised to ask his attorney to make the transfer. The attorney may create a deed that John signs, transferring the real estate from himself to himself as trustee for his trust. In Florida, it is important that the deed contain special powers that are enumerated under a state statute so that when John (or his heirs) sell the property one day, they dont have to record the trust or any special affidavits. In other states, like Massachusetts, the attorney may create a special type of trust that acts as a shell-like entity to hold title so that one does not have to record the entire trust in the public records to transfer title to the property. Not only could recording the trust be very expensive, it also subjects it to public review. Anyone who wants to see the contents of the trust may do so. Usually you want to keep the contents of your trust private. When you are married and there is Florida homestead involved, titling the property into the trust without considering the effects of Floridas descent and devise laws could result in unintended and adverse consequence. I dont have time to review that here, but I have done so in past columns. If you are interested, go to www.estateprograms. com. We briefly mention some of the issues there.

Two Thrilling Events For The Ages During The Past Weekendby Ed FrankFrom the Mississippi River to the Land of the Ozarks, and from the shores of Chicagos Lake Michigan to the plains of the Midwest, they are still reverberating from last Sundays thunderous screaming over two thrilling sports events. If you missed the national telecasts of the 100th PGA Golf Tournament and Sunday nights Chicago Cubs-Washington Nationals baseball game, you missed two long-remembered contests for the ages. Chicagos ancient Wrigley Field 104 years old has seen many historic games; Babe Ruths called home run shot in Game Three of the 1932 World Series, and Gabby Hartnetts Homer in the Gloamin in 1938 to mention just a couple. But rookie David Botes pinch hit two-out, two-strike grand slam homer in the bottom of the ninth inning to lift the Cubs to a 4-3 win over the Nationals certainly earns him a page in the Chicago Cubs-Wrigley Field history books. Old Wrigley still must be shaking from the sell-out crowd of more than 41,000 that witnessed the historic home run. To find a walk-off grand slam with two outs and two strikes you have to go all the way back to 1988 when Baltimore Catcher Chris Holles did the same thing. But remember, Bote did it as a rookie and a pinch hitter. Its the kind of thing little boys dream of when playing sandlot baseball. Now lets switch 300 miles south of Chicago to the Bellerive Country Club in St Louis, site of last weeks 100th PGA Golf Championship. Huge crowds in sweltering heat packed every fairway, and while the muscular, 28-year-old Brooks Koepka dazzled the galleries with his booming drives in winning his third Major title, it was clearly the Tiger Woods show as the fans hooted and hollered his every shot. When Woods drained a long birdie putt on the final hole Sunday to secure a secondplace finish, the roar from the tens of thousands lining the fairway and 18th green must have echoed into the hills and valleys far beyond Bellerive. Thats not to say that Koepkas march to the title, two strokes better than Tiger, wasnt appreciated by the galleries. But in many ways he appeared to play second fiddle to the Tiger show just as it was in June when he won his second U.S. Open title that was headlined by Phil Mickelsons amateurish antics in stopping a runaway putt from rolling off the 13th green at Shinnecock Golf Club in South Hampton, New York. Koepka became only the fifth player to win the U. S. Open and the PGA in the same year. His 264 total also set a new PGA scoring record. And Tigers blistering 64 was his lowest final round in any of his majors. As the media has been reporting all week, Tiger is clearly back despite falling just short last Sunday. His five top-10 finishes this year says it all. We should mention that his second-place finish in the PGA earned him a $1,188,000 paycheck. Koepka pocketed $1,980,000. There was another important note of history to last weeks PGA at Bellerive. It was the site of the WGC American Express Championship in 2001. On the morning of September 11, 2001, many of the pros, including Woods, were playing practice rounds when word spread of the terrorist attacks. The tournament was cancelled and most had to scramble to find transportation home due to the disruption of airline schedules. Many who played this past weekend at Bellerive have lingering memories of that day. SUN ISLAND SUN AUGUST 17, 201836 SPORTS QUIZ 1.

HerschFlorida Bar Board Certi ed Wills, Trusts & Estates Attorney, CPA SELECTING YOUR TRUSTEE online resources About That Timeby Bryan HayesAlthough we are more than 60 days into hurricane season, historically, this is the time of year when the tropics start to heat up. Every storm season, I talk about storm prep and how to make sure your air conditioning (a/c) system is ready for the big blow. There are some precautions that you can take to be sure your cooling system is ready. You should continue to have your a/c system maintained on a regular basis; every six months is about right. During this maintenance, make sure your a/c contractor checks for hurricane straps and that they are up to the task of holding your unit in place. From a storm perspective, this is the most important precaution you can take to protect property and ensure safety. Hurricane straps also prevent damage from your unit banging around. Even a strong storm that doesnt reach hurricane strength could cause a poorly secured system to topple. All industries have their own little catch phrases and one of ours is a hanger. A hanger is the outdoor section of your a/c that has blown off its stand. Back during the big blow of 2004, aka Hurricane Charley, we saw more hangers than you can imagine. One thing for sure is that no one wants a 200to 300-pound piece of equipment dangling by mere threads high off the ground. In addition, if a storm is approaching, make sure to turn your a/c off with the breakers. After the storm threat has passed, visually inspect your outdoor unit: does it appear to look like it did prior to the storm? Is there any debris sticking out of the top or the sides, and is it in the same place it was pre-storm? If youre not sure whether your system is properly secured, make sure to give your HVAC contractor a call. I know how much new systems can cost, and its essential that you do everything you can to prepare for potential hazards and protect your investment.

Doctor and DieticianStrengthen Your Glutesby Ross Hauser, MD and Marion Hauser, MS, RDDid you know your gluteus minimus, medius and maximus are the largest and strongest muscles in your body? They are very important muscles that help with everyday movements, such as sitting, standing, walking, balancing and climbing stairs. Since they are pretty much involved in just about everything we do, keeping them strong is essential. Strong glutes can decrease your risk of injury to the low back, knee, groin, and hamstrings. Does your low back ache occasionally? The source just may be weak butt muscles causing back strain. Weak glutes can also cause an imbalance in the hip, leading to the abnormal tracking of the kneecap and knee pain. Additionally, weak glutes contribute to pulled groin and hamstring muscles, as well as poor balance. Do your glutes need some work? Squats are a wonderful exercise to add to your workout for glute strengthening. A few other good glute strengthening exercises include standing or quadruped hip extensions, clamshells, bridges, step ups, hip thrusts, and single-leg stands on a flat surface or a Bosu ball. Demonstrations of these exercises are easily found online or ask a trainer to show you. Pick a few favorites and try two sets of 10 repetitions three to four times a week. Including aerobic exercise in your weekly routine for 30 minutes five days per week helps to strengthen the glutes while burning fat too. Try adding an incline to treadmill workouts for an even greater butt strengthening boost. For athletes, strengthening the glutes helps improve sports performance. But for those who arent athletes, strong glutes are still very important because they simply make life easier. Want better posture or be able to climb stairs more easily? Try strengthening your glutes. Having strong glute muscles is fundamental for proper execution of so many daily tasks and mobility.

Vick, Executive Vice President, Director of ResearchAt a time when the average Fortune 500 CEO is 57 years old and vulnerable to incessant challenges by shareholders and activists, Berkshire Hathaway Chairman Warren Buffett remains the sage beyond reproach. At 87, his stature, stamina and performance have eclipsed even the triumphs of the elderly Rockefeller, Carnegie and Ford, as Buffetts wealth of knowledge for running a corporation, for allocating capital, for mentoring future business leaders keeps compounding on itself like Berkshires share price. As he presided over his 52nd annual meeting in Omaha, Nebraska in May, one wondered if we were seeing Warren for the last time. So shareholders these days naturally try to prod Buffett into death-bed tell-all indictments of Americas and Washingtons wrongdoings. Instead, Buffetts messages to shareholders remain timeless, agnostic and crisp. America has endured far worse social conditions and political divisiveness than today, he believes, and businesses and investors would do well to ignore the daily media and political sideshows that capture ratings. Rather, rivet your resources to your core strengths and rivet your attention to your long-term plans. During uncertain times, he said, Never forget two things: First, widespread fear is your friend as an investor, because it serves up bargain purchases. Second, personal fear is your enemy. It will also be unwarranted. Buffett sits atop the investing world with a net worth of $84 billion precisely because of this ability to keep passion and emotion outside the sterile proverbs of finance and mathematics. Following the 2016 election, for example, Buffett saw an economy ripe for rebound, took advantage of other investors uncertainty, and made key investments that earned his shareholders tens of billions of dollars. Alas, he is not finished. Patience and optimism were the central themes at Berkshires annual meeting optimism that Berkshire will thrive long after Buffett; optimism in the U.S. economy; in Americas political system and leaders; and that future generations of Americans and businesses will continue to thrive as no other nations generations. Venturesome pioneers crafted a system that will deliver increasing wealth to our progeny far into the future, he wrote to shareholders. Yes, the build-up of wealth will be interrupted for short periods from time to time. It will not, however, be stopped Babies born in America today are the luckiest crop in history. No anecdote summed up Buffetts exemplary life more than his first investment, made during the darkest days of World War II. Going against the doom and gloom pundits of the day who touted owning gold, Buffett bought a preferred stock for $38 and sold it four months later for a meager profit. After the war, the same stock traded for $200. That experience caused Buffett to embrace patience. If you had put $10,000 into a basket of stocks in 1942, youd have $51 million today, and you wouldnt have had to do anything, Buffett told us. All you had to do was figure that America was going to do well over time, overcome difficulties, and that if America did well, American businesses would do well You just had to make one investment decision in continued on page 39

The environmental disaster in the water is making people sick. Its killing the fish, sea turtles, manatees and other wildlife that call the local waters home. Its hurting the economy and the local businesses that rely on the tourists and visitors who visit the area. Red tide has been a problem off Floridas coasts for a long time. With this area being heavily reliant on the tourism industry, it is not only an environmental disaster, it is an economic and human problem. Restaurants and other businesses are closing early or closing until it clears. Small, independent water sports and water excursion businesses who heavily rely on island tourists are receiving cancellations in droves and are returning deposits. Hours are cut and jobs are lost. What I havent heard much of in the news is the additional stresses the red tide/ green algae is placing on nonprofits, said Maggi Feiner, FISH of SanCap president and CEO. FISH, as the islands only human social services agency, has already seen an influx of individuals seeking assistance due to job loss, cut hours and medical conditions. Weve had folks come in requesting financial assistance for medical emergencies, such as skin irritation and respiratory problems related to the environmental situation. Because of the fish kill and odor, tourists are leaving, or not coming here at all, and spending their money elsewhere, causing a reduction in hours or job loss for our workers. Our neighbors, those that live and work here, need help. Theres no telling how long this will last; its a dire situation. Funding for our emergency financial assistance program is made available through grants and private donors, but with it being so late in the year, most of those funds have been allocated, said Nitza Lopez, FISH case manager. In the last few days, Ive talked with island workers requesting a temporary hand up until they get more work hours. Some work in resorts, others are servers; all rely heavily on tourism and tips to get by. With predictions that red tide/green algae may last for some time, coupled with cancellations for the 2019 season, its going to be tough for island employees for a number of months. FISH is closely watching for funding opportunities to help offset additional requests for its emergency financial assistance program. Private donations are appreciated and may be designated toward: Financial Assistance Red Tide Relief. Emergency financial assistance is evaluated on a case by case basis. FISH determines eligibility for needbased financial assistance through an extensive review of income and expense documentation. Amounts vary depending upon financial status and type of assistance requested. For more information about the emergency financial assistance, contact Nitza Lopez at 472-4775. FISH relies on community support to fund all programs and accepts unopened, unexpired food items which are delivered directly to island families in need. FISH donors are changing lives every day. Without the tax-deductible donations, FISH would not be able to provide the services that they do. Every donation makes a difference and 92.4 percent of all donations go directly to FISH programming.

SUN deaRPharmacistUnless You Are Allergic, Mangoes Are Magnificentby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Readers:Mangoes are one of the most popular fruits around the world. The first thing I want you to know is that the peel of the fruit is a common cause for dermatitis for some of you. It contains the same compound found in poison ivy, oak and sumac which is called urushiol, which the plant uses as its own defense mechanism. Mango fruit contain many different antioxidants, some of which you might recognize like Vitamin A, Vitamin C, copper, potassium and magnesium. Eating it regularly could provide some protection against a wide range of physiological disorders, infection and pain. Here are some things that mangoes can do to improve your health: 1. Reduce Blood Sugar Researchers fed mice some freeze-dried mango meal, then gave the other half of the mice a medication for diabetes called Rosiglitazone (Avandia). Mangoes worked as well at reducing blood sugar as prescription drugs. 2. Reduce Pain and Inflammation Like most other fruits, mango contains a class of compounds called polyphenols. These are known to be hugely beneficial, particularly for their anti-inflammatory properties. When you reduce inflammation, you naturally reduce pain too. 3. Relieve Constipation Eating more fiber can make a big difference, and mangoes (like all fruits and vegetables) gives you a jump start on that by providing a lot of natural fiber. But it stands apart from other fruits due to the way mangiferin and other compounds that reduce intestinal inflammation. A recent study showed that eating one mango each day improved constipation symptoms much more than taking an equivalent amount of dietary fiber. 4. Protect Your GI Tract Tons of research has focused on the gut microbiome (the mix of bacteria in the gut) in the past few years. We know that probiotics can have a positive influence, but who thinks of mangoes?! The research I read shows that mice fed a diet rich in mango showed dramatic alterations in their gut bacteria. It helps to normalize your gut flora. 5. Protects Your Brain Mango leaf extract has even been shown to protect the brain. In mice exposed to cadmium, a toxic heavy metal that causes serious brain damage, mango leaf extract was shown to protect the brain. If youre not allergic to mangoes, add them to your salads and smoothies. Please be 100 percent sure you are not allergic to this delicious fruit, because again, the skin/peel, stem and leaves impart urushiol, which is also found in poison ivy. It doesnt impact everyone. In fact, Im not allergic at all to mangoes, but for some, the reaction can cause your lips and tongue, or the skin around your lips and chin, to itch and burn. It can cause full-on anaphylaxis. So I just want you to be warned that mangoes, like many tropical fruits, can cause a problem, and sometimes its a new onset allergy. If youre not sensitive, enjoy them as often as you can.

A $10,000 investment in gold, in contrast, would today be worth just $400,000, Buffett noted.We have operated in this country with the greatest tailwind at our back that you can imagine, Buffett said. You cant really fail (at investing) unless you buy the wrong stock, or just get excited at the wrong time You do not have to know much about accounting or stock market terminology or what the Fed is going to do next time, and whether its going to raise rates two times or three times. None of that counts at all in a lifetime of investing, he said. What counts is having a philosophy to stick with, to understand why youre in it, and that you forget about doing things you dont know how to do. Indeed, part of the secret of Buffett, Ive learned, is that when there is nothing that needs to be done, Warren is probably the best at it. 39 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 17, 2018 Got A Problem? Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: My son is 35 years old and his girlfriend of two years broke up with him. He seems so stuck and depressed. I try to talk to him but he doesnt want to talk to me. What can I do?A: While I dont know the circumstance of the breakup of your son and his girlfriend, ending a relationship is never easy. Its very common for your son to feel depressed, especially if he did not expect this to occur. Usually there are signs, and perhaps your son is full of regret and wishes he could turn the clock back. Through his loss and grief, he will experience the various stages which include: denial, anger, depression, bargaining and finally he will come to acceptance that next time he will have learned from his last relationship. Perhaps your son could talk with a professional to help him get through this pain. He needs to go through it and then, at some point, he will be ready to move on and make peace with his past. Continue to let him know that you love and care for him and suggest he seeks someone to talk with. I have spent time working with men your sons age, and they do heal once they are able to reach an acceptance that healing can occur. It does take time, and its what your son decides to do with his time that will indicate how he works through the healing process. I do believe he will come around and talk with you. Be supportive and let him know you are there for him and, once he comes to acceptance, he will be ready to move on.

My foster mom calls me Tilly for short. Im about 11 months old and was lost in the area of East Lake Road, off Casa Ybel late last Friday night, August 3. Some kind people took me in for the remainder of the night. On Saturday morning, the lady from PAWS took me over to Coral Veterinary Clinic in Fort Myers to have them look me over. I have been combo tested (negative), had FVRCP and Rabies immunizations and was treated for fleas. I did not have a microchip. If PAWS cant find my people, I will be available for adoption in about two weeks. If I am your kitty, or you know who my people are, please call Pam at PAWS at 472-4823. You can also call if youre interested in meeting me and perhaps giving me a new forever home if my people cant be located. Hello, Im Capie. I was just born on June 2, so Im only 9 weeks old. Some great kids on vacation at South Seas Island Resort on Captiva found me on the side of the road on July 9 and took me to PAWS. I was very tiny back then. Ive been going to the vet for checkups and immunizations, etc. Im now up to 2 pounds, 7 ounces. Im told that Im a pretty handsome guy. My fur is kind of blue/gray, and I have interesting eyes and eyebrows. I love to run and chase golf balls and climb on cat trees. I would be very happy if someone would adopt me and take me to my forever home. Call Pam at PAWS at 472-4823 and come meet me. Matilda Capie Haven on Earth Animal LeagueCharlie Brown And PaigeHi! Im Charlie Brown. I am a handsome, 4-yearold male tabby with a very sweet personality. I am looking for a quiet home with someone who wants to give me lots of affection. Im currently living with a foster family. I have been fully vetted and brought up to date on all vaccines. My adoption fee is $75. Hello, Im Paige. I am a beautiful, calico female kitty, not even 2 years old. I am very affectionate, and I even get along with friendly dogs. I have been fully vetted and brought up to date on all vaccines. I tested positive for FIV, but Im told that I can still live a long, happy life once I find my forever home. I am currently staying with a foster mom and am not real crazy about the other cats in the house, so I would like to be an only cat. My adoption fee is $75. We are being cared for by Haven on Earth Animal League. For more information, call Diane at 860-833-4472 or email email@example.com.

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. Shore Fishing: Don't Harm The Fishby Capt. Matt Mitchell
Top 10 Real Estate SalesCourtesy of Royal Shell Real Estate 47 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 17, 2018 My Stars FOR WEEK OF AUGUST 20, 2018Aries (March 21 to April 19) Impatience with those who dont keep up with you can cause resistance, which, in turn, can lead to more delays. Best to be helpful and supportive if you want results. Taurus (April 20 to May 20) A surprise announcement from a colleague could put you on the defensive. Gather your facts and respond. Youll soon find the situation shifting in your favor. Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Time spent away from a project pays off with a new awareness of options you hadnt considered before. Weigh them carefully before deciding which to choose. Cancer (June 21 to July 22) Consider confronting that personal conflict while theres still time to work things out. A delay can cause more problems. A longtime colleague might offer to mediate. Leo (July 23 to August 22) Some emerging matters could impede the Lions progress in completing an important project. Best advice: Deal with them now, before they can create costly delays. Virgo (August 23 to September 22) Your aspect continues to favor an expanding vista. This could be a good time to make a career move, and taking an out-of-town job could be a good way to do it. Libra (September 23 to October 22) Disruptive family disputes need to be settled so that everyone can move on. Avoid assuming this burden alone, though. Ask for -no, demand -help with this problem. Scorpio (October 23 to November 21) Patience is called for as you await word on an important workplace situation. A personal circumstance, however, could benefit by your taking immediate action. Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21) Dont lose confidence in yourself. Those doubters are likely to back off if you demand they show solid proof why they think your ideas wont work. Capricorn (December 22 to January 19) A temporary setback might cause the usually sure-footed Goat some unsettling moments. But keep going. The path ahead gets easier as you move forward. Aquarius (January 20 to February 18) Theres welcome news from the workplace. There also could be good news involving a relationship that has long held a special meaning for you. Pisces (February 19 to March 20) You might still need to cut some lingering ties to a situation that no longer has the appeal it once held. In the meantime, you can start to explore other opportunities. Born This Week: Your sense of whats right can inspire others if you remember not to push too hard to make your case. Moderation works best for you. It was 18th-century French writer Sebastien Nicolas de Chamfort who made the following sage observation: Conscience is a dog that does not stop us from passing but that we cannot prevent from barking. You might be surprised to learn that famed British author Aldous Huxley, best-known for his dystopian novel Brave New World, was a consultant on Disneys 1951 animated film version of Alice in Wonderland. If you bring to mind an image of John Lennon, more likely than not youll see him in your minds eye wearing a pair of round spectacles. In July 2007, a single pair of those iconic glasses was sold at auction for a whopping $2 million. The tongue of the alligator is fastened to the jaw all the way around. Thats why youll never see a gator stick out its tongue. You might be surprised to learn that the kilt originated not in Scotland, but in France. You probably know that certain species of snakes can grow to enormous size, with the longest specimens reaching upward of 30 feet in length and the heaviest weighing more than 400 pounds. Kind of makes you wonder what these monstrous serpents eat -and you might be surprised. According to reports, a pet python named Houdini swallowed a queen-size electric blanket. Even more amazingly, after a two-hour operation, the snake lived! Those who track radio statistics say Led Zeppelins Stairway to Heaven is the mostrequested song in the United States and this despite the fact that it was never released as a single on this side of the Atlantic. Theres no secret about success. Did you ever know a successful man who didnt tell you about it?
