This is such a wonderful place to work in, said Wendy Lambrix, circulation manager. I love the new, larger windows and the idea that everything is more spread out. And the new back porch is my favorite. According to library representatives, the renovation project dubbed Your Library Reimagined started more than three years ago, when the Sanibel Public Library Foundations board and library staff analyzed obsolete infrastructure. The renovation included overhauling the 25-year-old mechanical, plumbing, fire suppression and electrical systems. During the renovation, crews tested (and retested) more than 5.1 miles of data cable. More than two miles of ductwork has been installed. The project has also reimagined the layout of the space to better serve community needs. Theres much better lighting, which is a big thing, said Ian Wainwright, library staff member. Not only is that better for the people who work here, but people who come here to read are enjoying it too. Among the latest improvements, in addition to larger windows to maximize the natural light and scenic views, include a brand new A/V (audio/video) department, containing the librarys catalog of DVDs, CDs and audiobooks. All multimedia platforms are stored on rolling shelving units, which will allow those units to be relocated in order to accommodate audiences for special events including the Author Series. The A/V section is located in the area most recently occupied by the childrens section, which had temporarily been relocated adjacent to the circulation desk. The new childrens section has returned to its original location on the east side of the building. Surrounding the childrens area, which contains color-coordinated seating and visual enhancements, is a Think Tank Maker Space for children to play with Legos, puzzles and games; an expanded seating area with larger windows; and a Teen Space with comfortable seating, three continued on page 26 John Clark, visiting from Richmond, Virginia, working on a puzzle at the Sanibel Public Librarys new puzzle and games area, which debuted on August 8 photos by Jeff Lysiak The new Teen Space includes three computer stations and space for doing homework Lenny Abruzzo and his son, Luke, visiting from New Jersey, reading a story in the childrens area New lighting hanging above the main entrance lobby, which is still under renovation

WWW.ShopOnSanibel.COMFor individual shop information: LUNCH BAR DINNER GIFTS Sanibel Sea School Thanks The Communityby Jeff LysiakBetween the first week of July and mid-August, an online fundraising campaign exceeded the goal set by Sanibel Sea School to raise enough money to purchase 10 Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) units for the schools pickup trucks, buses, vans and marine vessels. With a target goal of $11,000, the campaign raised $12,325 in approximately 30 days. The largest individual donation was $1,000, with a majority of donors contributing $25 to the fundraiser. A total of 82 families and individual donors participated. Donations came in from across the United States some people had a connection to the islands, but some of them contributed just because they believe in AEDs and their importance in saving lives, said Dr. Bruce Neill, the schools co-founder and executive director. I hope that this campaign further amalgamates Sanibel Sea School as an institution of the community. We all own Sanibel Sea School. 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 suddenly stops beating. The idea of starting the online campaign called A Safer Sanibel came from said Emmett Horvath, one of the schools marine science educators. He noted that the schools vehicles and vessels are out in the field more than 200 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. All of our staff are first aid and CPR certified, but that training is much less effective without access to the proper equipment, said Horvath. 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. 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. Dr. Neill offered his sincere thanks to the entire community for supporting the schools campaign. Ive told a lot of people, Thank you for your donation and I hope we never have to use them, he said. But if we need to use them, weve got em. The school is currently working through the process of purchasing the AED units, one for a bus, two each for corporate vehicles, pickup trucks and staff boat captains, and three for transport vans. Both buildings at the schools 455 Periwinkle Way campus are equipped with AEDs. For more information, call 472-8585 or visit www.sanibelseaschool.org.

On August 16, Ruane wrote, Our community has been devastated by the ongoing water quality issues associated with freshwater releases from Lake Okeechobee and runoff from the Caloosahatchee watershed. Since the freshwater releases began in June 2018, we have seen our coastal waters transition from aquamarine to coffee brown, we have watched blue-green algae blooms invade more than 60 miles of the Caloosahatchee River and estuary, and we have experienced the worst red tide event in more than a decade. Each of these events magnifies the ecological impacts to our estuary and coastal waters destroying sea grass beds, oysters, and the very life that depends on these important ecosystems. These events also threaten to diminish our standing as a worldrenowned tourism destination directly impacting our local economy, island businesses, property values and our quality of life. We need the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to implement emergency actions to maintain flows 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. Lake Okeechobee discharges are compounding the impacts of watershed runoff from the Caloosahatchee. Additional freshwater will only expand the area suitable for blue-green algae growth and continue to fuel algae blooms that are plaguing our community. We also need the Corps to explore temporary deviations from the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes regulation schedules to slow down the rate of water inflow to Lake Okeechobee. The Corps must also utilize maximum operational flexibility to move additional water south by overcoming operational constraints that do not directly impact human health and safety. Our local economy and quality of life depends on your voice! Please send your elected leaders and key representatives from the Army Corps a letter today. Thank you for doing your part to improve our water quality. To submit a preformatted letter to legislators in support of stopping Lake Okeechobee discharges, visit https:// p2a.co/w97f29E.

Jennifer Reynolds of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers the impacts of the blue-green algae and red tide blooms on Sanibels waterways photo providedExpert Explains Red Tide And Blue-Green Algaesubmitted by J. Bruce Neill, PhD, co-founder and executive director, Sanibel Sea SchoolWe want to help people understand the ocean. This is the first installment of a series to inform people about red tide and harmful algal blooms currently affecting Southwest Florida. The first thing. We really dont really know enough about red tide and the conditions that cause it to occur in high densities. The name red tide is unfortunate. The water color in a red tide event is not usually red, nor does it have anything to do with the tide. Red tide is caused by a single-celled organism, Karenia brevis. Karenia brevis is a naturally occurring species of phytoplankton classified as a dinoflagellate; it is not a plant but has the ability to carry out photosynthesis. Karenia brevis has the ability to reproduce very rapidly in favorable conditions. Rapid reproduction is common among phytoplankton species; these episodes of rapid population expansion are called blooms. Red tide is caused by a Karenia brevis bloom. Karenia brevis naturally produce compounds classified as brevitoxins, a group of compounds that can be neurotoxic to animals with backbones. In humans, when ingested in high concentrations, they cause the illness neurolytic shellfish poisoning. Brevitoxins are not actively released into the water by living Karenia brevis cells, but upon the death of the cell, these compounds are released into the ocean. Red tide has been recorded since the 1840s in the Gulf of Mexico in Southwest Florida. Karenia brevis cells are usually present in the waters of Southwest Florida, but at very low concentrations. The conditions favorable for Karenia brevis blooms are not well understood, but blooms are often associated with upwelling events. Upwellings are the movements of deep, nutrient-rich waters to the shallow, warm, sunlit upper levels of the ocean. These upwelling events are associated with wind and climatic conditions that push Karenia brevis populations towards shore. Phytoplankton population growth in the ocean is commonly limited by concentrations of nitrogen or phosphorus in the water. Human activities produce and release significant amounts of nitrogen and phosphorus from agriculture, landscaping and sewage these nutrients make their way into rivers, and then to the ocean. There is no evidence that red tides are more frequent because of human-influenced discharges from lakes and rivers, but evidence indicates they last longer, and are more intense in areas of river discharges. The estuary adjacent to Sanibel receives water from the Caloosahatchee, which is fed by Lake Okeechobee. Therefore, Sanibel is receiving water from a very large area of land. This water is nutrient-enriched by both agriculture and high density human communities which add landscaping and sewage runoff. When Karenia brevis moves into our region, the nutrient-rich conditions from the Caloosahatchee are favorable for intense, long-lived, high concentration blooms to occur. How Does Red Tide Affect Humans? Shellfish filter and feed on plankton from the water; in doing so, they accumulate brevitoxins. Eating shellfish that have high concentrations of brevitoxins causes a serious illness, continued on page 18

Plant SmartHairy Cowpeaby Gerri ReavesHairy cowpea ( Vigna luteola ) is a native twining vine of the pea family and a relative of the blackeyed pea ( Vigna unguiculata ) and mung bean ( Vigna radiate ). Commonly considered a weed and more common in coastal areas, it grows along roadsides and in disturbed areas, ditches, tidal flats and marshes, swamps, swales and vacant lots. This very hardy perennial can be prostrate, trailing, tangled, or climbing with branches several feet long. The bright yellow flowers bloom all year, appearing at the end of long angled stems. The larger upper petal is wider than it is long. The alternate leaves are made up of three ovate to lanceolate leaflets of about an inch and a half long. The pea pods measure from one to two and a half inches long, with indentations between the several seeds. The pods are hairy, thus the common name. Ground-feeding birds eat the seeds, and the plant is a food source for white-tailed deer, a fact that inspires another common name, deer pea. The plant is also called wild cowpea. The seeds and flowers are said to be edible when cooked. Hairy cowpea is a good addition to a butterfly garden, because it is a larval host for the gray hairstreak, ceraunus and cassius blue butterflies, as well as the Dorantes and long-tailed skippers. Propagate it with seeds or cuttings. Sources: Everglades Wildflowers by Roger L. Hammer, Florida Wild Flowers and Roadside Plants by C. Ritchie Bell and Bryan J.

Resiliencyby Capt. Matt MitchellPine Island sound waters have greatly improved over the last week from this never-ending red tide. Its certainly still not back to normal yet, but the improvement in conditions is fabulous to see. As long as we stay on a easterly wind pattern the red tide should continue to blow out of the bay. Lower red tide levels and cleaner water around the local passes meant catch-and-release snook action is strong. The toughest part of fishing has been keeping bait alive. The grass flats that Im throwing the cast net on are holding both shiners and pinfish. Once you start putting these baits in the live well, they have been hard to keep alive. On several outings this week, I ended up catching bait multiple times but it only takes one running through an area of red tide and you would lose the majority of your bait. If you could get these baits to the passes alive, the bite has been outstanding with snook, trout, snapper and jacks keeping the rods bent. Our big snook of the week measured 30 inches, although there were several times that bigger snook were hooked and won the battle. After not fishing with shiners for over a week due to the red tide, it was great to have these great baits, and they really upped the action and the quality of the fish caught. To catch snook again really felt good after several trips of only targeting mangrove snapper on live shrimp. Making national news has had a major ripple effect on tourism with this being the slowest August anyone can ever remember. This situation is making things very lean for anyone who makes their living in the hospitality business and especially those who do so on the water. Marinas, bait shops and captains are all experiencing the slowest month bearable. After such a major reoccurring and what feels like a never-ending red tide nightmare thats still happening all over the Florida gulf coast, Im seeing a glimmer of hope. With tons of dead fish, dead turtles, dolphins and manatees being removed from our local waters, marine life is gradually returning. This really says a lot about the resiliency of Pine Island Sound. Im slowly feeling a little relief as things are slowly getting back to almost normal. 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. If you have comments or questions, email captmattmitchell@aol. com. ISLAND MARINE SERVICES, INC.

Shell Of The WeekFlorida Regal Dorisby Jos H. Leal, PhD, BaileyMatthews National Shell Museum Science Director and CuratorThe Florida Regal Doris, Felimare picta (Schultz in Philippi, 1836), is one of the nudibranch sea slugs found offshore along Sanibel Island and other parts of Southwest Florida. At about 50 mm, it is one of the largest nudibranchs in this part of the world. The Florida Regal Doris shows an elegant color pattern of yellow lines and elliptical markings against a dark blue, sometimes almost black, background. The gills are visible as a set of feather-like projections on the posterior part of the animal. The egg mass in this species is orange, measuring in average about 25 mm (about an inch). The photo shows microscopic eggs embedded in the delicate, gel-like support structure. All photos were taken at the museums live tank.

Local Musician To Compete At Blues ChallengeAnticipation is building for this years Regional International Blues Challenge (IBC) to be held on Sunday, August 26 as musicians from all over Southwest Florida descend on the Rhythm House in Fort Myers for the chance to compete at the national IBC in Memphis in January. Among them is the Marty Stokes Band, 2016s winner for best band, who went on to represent the region at the national competition in 2017. Led by vocalist and guitarist Marty Stokes, the band is comprised of Daryl Best on bass guitar, Jennifer Mazziotti on saxophone and keyboards, and Chicago Dave Murphy on drums. Hot off the release of their fourth album, Down On My Knees, with great reviews, the band is expected to set fire to the stage with originals and covers drawn from the deep well of blues history. Stokes, an island native who was raised on Sanibel and Captiva, has been enamored with the blues since he was a kid and counts guitar greats like Johnny Winter, Eric Clapton, Alvin Lee, Peter Green, BB King and Muddy Waters among his inspirations. Stokes possesses an ear for innovation and a talent for improvising searing, original guitar riffs and deep, heartfelt vocals. A fan favorite, the Marty Stokes Band is a three-time winner of the Southwest Florida Blues Societys Peoples Choice Award and has placed in competitions for the South Florida and Suncoast Blues Societies. With performance roots in Germany, Stokes and his band bring the gospel of the blues to venues all over Southwest Florida as well as numerous festivals, such as Ave Maria Blues Festival, the Bonita Blues Festival and the Sanibel Blues & Jazz Festival.

CROW Case Of The Week: Little Blue Heron by Bob PetcherThe little blue heron (Egretta caerulea) is relatively small as compared to other herons. Its modest size is in contrast to its long legs and dagger-like bill, which it utilizes with a patient, stand-andwait approach on its prey. This predatory action is much like its larger cousin, the great blue heron. Adult little blue herons are of dark colors, usually sporting a maroon head and neck above its blue body. Juveniles, on the other hand, are entirely white, while youngsters closer to adulthood are a mix of white and blue. At CROW, a little blue heron was admitted from Cape Coral a day after it was rescued from Black Skimmer Island by a fishing charter captain who noticed the bird was unable to walk. The injured bird was taken to a drop-off location in Cape Coral for the evening. When the bird arrived at CROW the next morning, medical officials noted the patient to be hock sitting. Hock sitting describes when a bird sits on a joint called the hock, which normally would not touch the ground, said Dr. Kyle Abbott, CROW veterinary intern. In most cases, hock sitting is not normal for birds. There are certain circumstances and species where this occurs more often but, in general, this is a sign of weakness. The little blue heron was also stated to have a loss of cloacal tone. Veterinarians suspected it to be afflicted with brevetoxicosis, or red tide poisoning. Cloacal tone describes the muscle tone of the entrance to the cloaca. The cloaca is the opening from which birds eliminate feces and urates, as well as lay eggs, said Dr. Abbott. When birds are neurologically compromised, such as with brevetoxicosis (red tide), then we see this cloacal tone decrease which can result in an inability to eliminate the bodys waste. The avian patient was given fluids, medications and started on a re-feeding plan. Veterinarians also decided to monitor the birds neurological status. Less than a week later, the little blue heron was noted to be healthier. This little blue heron is improving steadily with supportive care. The patient is gaining strength and spending more time standing each day, said Dr. Abbott. The patient has also begun eating on its own, which is a great indicator. While it is too early to tell if or when the little blue heron will be released, there nevertheless is a positive forecast. As long as this heron continues to have steady progress and gain strength, its prognosis will be good. The fact it is eating is a good indicator that he can continue to make progress, said Dr. Abbott. Many of these animals affected by brevetoxicosis can survive with the intensive care this heron is receiving. CROW officials would like to compliment charter captains and other boaters who have been extremely helpful in spotting and rescuing sick wildlife during the recent red tide blooms. The fishing charter captain rescuing this bird was important for his survival, and we are thankful for their help. The amount of community support that CROW receives is essential for giving aid to these animals, said Dr. Abbott. It is important to keep in mind that any wild animals, even relatively small animals like egrets, herons and cormorants, can pose a threat to humans. If someone finds an injured or sick wild animal, please remember CROW is available to answer any questions about whether an animal may need help or what to do with the animal so that it can be treated. If you are unsure what to do, it is always best to call first before trying to help the animal to ensure the safety of the animal and the person rescuing it.

Both can add to the paddling experience, but there is a high level of personal preference involved. Here, we share the basics so you will have the information you need to make your own choices when purchasing. A rudder is a blade attached to the stern of the kayak, usually by metal cables. It is controlled by foot pedals, and can stay straight to help with tracking (maintaining a straight course) or pivot to help you turn your vessel. Rudders can often be raised and secured when not in use. Most kayaks do not come with a standard rudder, because it is possible to turn using just your paddle, but some longer boats designed for touring long distances may have a permanent rudder. Keep in mind that while a rudder will make turning easy and can leave your hands free for things like fishing, photography or eating, you will sacrifice forward momentum with each pivot. We recommend a rudder for beginner to intermediate paddlers when in open water in windy, rough conditions. More skilled paddlers with efficient strokes may have less need for a rudder. Stand up paddleboards will usually come with fins as standard equipment, but fins are usually customizable and can be changed to suit your needs. Like rudders, fins help with stability and tracking. They can also affect speed and your ability to turn. In general, the more surface area a fin has, the more stability it will offer. With a larger fin, you will usually sacrifice speed and maneuverability. Smaller fins are faster and easier to turn. Fin shape is closely related to performance, and there are a variety of shapes and configurations available. Some paddlers prefer one fin, while others use two, three or even four. It is possible to own multiple sets for different situations. When choosing a rudder or fins, the most important thing to keep in mind is your paddling lifestyle. It is always best to consult with an expert at your local paddle shop, who should be familiar with the local waters and paddling conditions. They will also know what will complement your paddling style, what is available for your specific vessel and how to position fins and rudders for optimal performance. Always try before you buy, if possible. Ask if there is a demo day coming up when you might be able to test various equipment before you invest. Happy paddling!

Commercial shellfish operations are monitored very closely in the State of Florida, and commercially harvested shellfish are safe to consume during a red tide outbreak. However, shellfish should not be harvested and/or consumed during or shortly after a red tide outbreak. Brevitoxins can also be suspended in the air at the surf line. These molecules can irritate the back of the throat and eyes when in the air in high concentrations. Airborne molecules can also provide challenges for people with pre-existing pulmonary challenges such as asthma or COPD. The airborne effects of brevitoxins are usually in areas close to the shore and diminish quickly as one moves inland. The amount of brevitoxin absorption through the skin is unclear, but doesnt seem to be a significant pathway of absorption although more research is ongoing. What Are Blue-Green Algae? Blue-green algae are bacteria that are capable of carrying out photosynthesis. They are classified as cyanobacteria. Cyanobacteria are extremely diverse and different species occupy almost all habitable locations on Earth. Many cyanobacteria are very important to our life on this planet, but some produce toxins they are collectively known as cyanotoxins. The cyanobacteria currently a problem for Southwest Florida are species that grow in freshwater mostly belonging to the genus Mycrocystis, the most common being Mycrocystis aeruginosa. Mycrosystis aeruginosa is green and creates small gas spaces in its cells that cause it to float on the top of water; blooms look like a green film on the waters surface. It thrives in nutrient-rich freshwater, has the ability to readily absorb nitrogen and phosphorus, and rapidly reproduce, allowing it to have large, rapid blooms. Because these blooms float, they shade out other algal species in the water, and monopolize nutrient resources. The chemical produced by Mycrosystis of principal concern is microsystin. This is a small peptide chain, released upon the death of a cell; it is stable in water, and can persist weeks to months after cell death. There are many identified microsystin variants; they are hepatotoxins, which cause serious liver damage. They are also suspected to affect other organs, interfere with sperm production, and are suspected to be mutagens. The principal known method of ingestion is by drinking water contaminated with microsystin. Mycrocystis has been thriving in Lake Okeechobee for some time; releases from the Lake to the Caloosahatchee have seeded the river with these algal cells, where they continue to thrive and bloom in the nutrient rich waters. The good news for our gulf is that Mycrocystis does not tolerate salty conditions well. The bad news is that they will persist in our estuaries and especially the urban canals within them having intermediate salinities quite well.

Customer Favorites!Tennessee Bourbon Straight Rye Whiskey Double Barrel Whiskey The Community HouseWatermelonby Resident Chef Jarred HarrisSummertime is watermelon season, and the delicious fruit will be available until the end of September. Watermelon is the perfect summer fruit because it contains 92 percent water and is very refreshing. I enjoy using watermelon in recipes because the whole fruit is edible. Watermelon rind can be pickled or peeled and used in stir fry dishes, and watermelon seeds can be dried and eaten like pumpkin seeds. Did you know that the watermelon is actually a vegetable? Watermelons are classified as part of a botanical family of gourds that includes pumpkin, squash and cucumber. In fact, Oklahoma made the watermelon its state vegetable in 2007. The watermelon originated in the Kalahari Desert over 5,000 years ago. The first recorded watermelon harvest was depicted in Egyptian hieroglyphics, found on the walls inside ancient buildings. Watermelons were placed in the burial tombs of kings to give them nourishment in the afterlife. Watermelons were first documented in China around the 10th century and in Europe around the 13th century. The fruit found its way to the United States with African slaves around the 16th century. There are many different varieties of watermelon, and they can be found in different colors, shapes and sizes. The Japanese grow square watermelons. They place the fruit in square glass boxes and the fruit becomes square as it grows. Watermelons are a great source of lycopene, vitamin C, potassium and dietary fiber, and the seeds contain high levels of protein, magnesium and zinc. Here is a simple recipe to try: Grilled Watermelon and Halloumi Cheese Salad Ingredients 4 ozs. baby arugula 8 ozs. halloumi cheese (grilled and cut into 8 pieces) 8 slices of watermelon (rind removed and cut in half) Dressing cup basil (shredded) cup mint (roughly chopped) cup extra virgin olive oil Juice and zest of 1 lemon 2 tblsp. honey Method Lightly brush the watermelon and cheese with olive oil. Grill until marks are formed on the melon and cheese slices (only grill one side), remove from the grill and set aside. Arrange the arugula on a platter. Place the watermelon and halloumi on top of the arugula. Sprinkle the mint and basil over the salad. Place the olive oil, lemon and honey in a bowl and whisk. Pour over the salad. Makes four servings. Resident Chef Jarred Harris heads the Culinary Education Center at The Community House on Sanibel.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 24, 201824 SUN Book ReviewThe Death Of Mrs. Westawayby Di SaggauAuthor Ruth Ware had me mesmerized with her bestselling The Woman in Cabin 10 and The Lying Game. Now shes done it again with The Death of Mrs. Westaway. Harriet Hal Westaway is a tarot reader on the Brighton Pier. Shes barely making ends meet. In fact, she owes a loan shark a lot of money, and he wants it back now. Hal lost her mother several years before and that has caused her to lead a solitary and penniless life. One day she receives a letter saying shes been named in a will as the beneficiary of a substantial inheritance from her grandmother. Hal knows there is a mistake, because her grandparents have been dead for over 20 years. The bills are piling up, and Hal is running out of options so she travels to Cornwall, in spite of feeling its probably all a mistake. Hal soon finds herself at Trepassen, the sprawling estate in the English countryside where the deceased Mrs. Westaways family has gathered to pay their respects and claim their bequest. Hal meets several possible uncles and a creepy old housekeeper in the rundown mansion. She desperately tries to keep up her charade of being a family member and soon realizes that the venomous atmosphere of Trepassen House has strong roots about past characters. This includes a young girl who lived there, fell in love and was imprisoned in her bedroom. Hal has to figure out who this girl was without putting herself in harms way. Hal uses her tarot readings to get to know her new found relatives better. Theres something very wrong about whats going on, and the inheritance is at the center of it. The Death of Mrs. Westaway is a very human mystery full of spellbinding menace, magpies and plenty of chills. Its an expertly paced and expertly crafted read. School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Readers,Many parents tell me that their children are anxious about school, particularly at the beginning of the school year. Here are some suggestions from the National Association of School Psychologists to help you deal with your childrens anxiety and how to pursue problems if they arise. First of all, let you children know you care. If your children are anxious about school, send personal notes in the lunch box or book bag. Reinforce the ability to cope. Children absorb their parents anxiety, so model optimism and confidence for your child. Let your children know that it is natural to be a little nervous anytime you start something new, but that they will be just fine once they become familiar with classmates, the teacher and school routine. Do not overreact. If the first few days are a little rough, try not to overreact. Young children in particular may experience separation anxiety or shyness initially, but teachers are trained to help them adjust. If you drop them off, try not to linger. Reassure them that you love them, will think of them during the day and will be back. Remain calm and positive. Acknowledge anxiety over a bad experience the previous year. Children who had a difficult time academically or socially or were teased or bullied may be more fearful or reluctant to return to school. If you have not yet done so, share your childrens concern with the school and confirm that the problem has been addressed. Reassure your children that the problem will not occur again in the new school year, and that you and the school are working together to prevent further issues. Reinforce your childrens ability to cope. Give your children a few strategies to manage a difficult situation on their own. But encourage your children to tell you or the teacher if the problem persists. Maintain open lines of communication with the school. Arrange play dates. Try to arrange get-togethers with some of your childrens classmates before school starts and during the first weeks of school to help them re-establish positive social relationships with peers. Plan to volunteer in the classroom. If possible, plan to volunteer in the classroom at least periodically throughout the year. Doing so helps your children understand that school and family life are linked and that you care about the learning experience. Being in the classroom is also a good way to develop a relationship with your childrens teachers and classmates, and to get firsthand exposure to the classroom environment and routine. Most teachers welcome occasional parent help, even if you cannot volunteer regularly. These recommendations can contribute to a positive and productive school experience for most children. Some children may exhibit more extreme opposition to or fear of school or may be coping with more specific learning or psychological difficulties. If your children demonstrate problems that seem extreme in nature or go on for an extended period, you may want to contact the school to set up an appointment to meet with your childrens teachers and school psychologist. They may be able to offer direct or indirect support that will help identify and reduce the presenting problem. They may also suggest other resources within the school and the community to help you address the situation. While children can display a variety of behaviors, it is generally wise not to over-interpret those behaviors. More often than not, time and a few intervention strategies will remedy the problem. Most children are wonderfully resilient and, with your support and encouragement, will thrive throughout their school experience. Shelley Greggs is adjunct faculty at Florida SouthWestern State College, where she teaches psychology and education courses. She is also a nationally certified school psychologist and consultant for School Consultation Services, a private educational consulting company.

Call Madeline for Reservations From page 1Librarycomputer stations and space for doing homework. This library, compared with what we have in New Jersey, just blows everything away, said Lenny Abruzzo, who stopped by the library with his son, Luke. Its amazing what you have for a library this size. They did a great job it looks incredible. Additional improvements completed during the latest phase, which required the closure of the library between July 9 and August 8, include a greatly expanded fiction section with several themed book displays; four new study rooms; two computer labs with high-speed Internet; a puzzle and games area; a book sale section; expanded back porch with tables and rocking chairs; and new Archives Room with digitization capabilities for easier scanning of photos. Those rooms are accented with etched glass windows created by island artist Luc Century. This space is great, said John Clark from Richmond, Virginia, who visited the new puzzle and games area last week. The bigger windows let in a lot more natural light, which is great for the library. In addition to the latest enhancements to the facility, several new pieces of furniture have been brought in, while some older chairs have been reupholstered with brightly colored fabrics. During Phase II of the renovation, more than 35,000 items including books, multimedia, computers, office equipment, furniture and shelving had to be moved in order to complete work aimed at improving the infrastructure of the library. Among the behind the scenes improvements are state of the art upgrades in plumbing, HVAC, fire suppression, electric and data wiring. According to Margaret Mohundro, library executive director, her staff has expressed their pleasure with a number of new enhancements, especially those elements related to improved technology. The technology upgrades put us in a great position to provided cutting edge services for the next several years: a Wi-Fi network that delivers content at lightningfast speeds, a robustness that allows the connections of hundreds of devices simultaneously, and the strength and durability to endure inclement weather and power failures, she said. I know we all feel better about infrastructure upgrades that work well and are more safe and efficient than some of the aging systems we had in place. Mohundro, who said that her favorite new elements include the colorful youth areas accented in hues of turquoise, green, purple and orange also noted the target completion date for the project is this fall. Wait until everyone sees the completed lobby and entrance the lighting shape is similar in shape to the grinning tun shell and reflects off the glass, she added. It is magical-looking and spectacular. The Your Library Reimagined project, designed by HBM Architects of Cleveland, Ohio, is being funded with library A center handrail was installed along the main staircase photos by Jeff Lysiak reserves, grants and private donations. The library, which recently earned a Top 8 Libraries in Florida to Spend a Day Indoors rating from www.FloridaRentals. com, will host The Donut Drop-In end-ofsummer party this Saturday, August 25 from 10 a.m. to noon.

The expanded area for fiction books features lower shelves for easier reading Superior InteriorsMaking The Most Of A Small Bedroomby Trinette NelsonDecorating a small bedroom might seem challenging, but there are so many simple ways to make the space equally functional and stylish. First, make sure to stick to a strict color palette. Decorating with too many hues will make the room look more cramped and cluttered than it is. A monochromatic color scheme can create a soothing and open atmosphere. Letting as much light in as possible is another simple way to open the space. Dress the windows with voile drapes instead of dark curtains. Dont limit wall decorations to art. Consider hanging multiple large mirrors. It creates the illusion that theres double the amount of space and bounces light around the room. Finding storage space can often present a challenge. A floor-to-ceiling fitted storage unit is the perfect answer. Not only is it extremely functional, but it can add a hint of character and personalization to the room. Freeing up the floor space in a small bedroom is key, so do it whenever possible. Consider an innovative approach to the furniture selection, such as a hanging night stand or set of floating shelves. Making the most of a small bedroom is easy. If youre ready to free up the space in your small bedroom, a design professional can easily assist with space planning.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 24, 201832 Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellThe Rotary International motto is Service Above Self and, believe me, those words are the inspiration that keep this organization working with other organizations in our community and around the world on projects that can make a difference in peoples lives. However, Rotary is not the only nonprofit service organization out there that believes this philosophy. Sanibel-Captiva Rotary partners with many of them but has not had the opportunity to work with all of them. Last Friday morning, our guest speaker brought to our attention a Fort Myers-based charitable organization called Builders without Borders, which has taken volunteer construction crews to Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi and Haiti for the purpose of constructing schools, dormitory buildings and churches for Christian charitable organizations in third world countries. Our speaker, Craig Schneider, is a volunteer with Builders without Border and gave us insight into the work that this organization accomplishes in Africa and Haiti. The organization has one or two construction projects running a year. Advance planning is done on finding the right project partner, working on identifying the organizations needs, site plans, construction plans and materials needed for the construction site. All building materials come from the states; metal frame material is pre-cut and any building material that is used is prepared for simple construction on site. A time frame for construction is determined and a volunteer team is selected for the trip and build. Schneider was on the recent Builders without Borders project that traveled to the Africa New Life Ministries School campus for the building of two dormitories and a church in Kayonza, Rwanda in July. Fifty volunteers traveled to Rwanda at a cost to each volunteer of $2,600. A 14-day time frame for the build was determined. Donations for the cost of building supplies and shipping of materials cost approximately $375,000. All builds are paid for by donations. The construction team is aided in on site construction by locals who are paid for their work, which in turn provides them with both pride in construction and a small monetary stipend. According to its website: Africa New Life Ministries manages several schools throughout Rwanda where over 90 percent of the students are on sponsored scholarships. ANLMs model of caring recognizes that with educational scholarships being central, there are four other factors necessary for children to succeed: stable home, growing faith, community development and healthy body. Schneider pointed out that volunteers do not necessarily need to be in the construction field. Preparation of site is simple, and the builds are erector-set type construction. If anyone has the calling to help with this type of service project or would like to make a donation for a future build, go to www.builderswithoutborders. net for more information. August is membership month for Rotary. We invite anyone in our community who may have an interest in finding out more about the SanibelCaptiva Rotary Club to come as our guest for breakfast on any Friday morning at 7 a.m. at The Dunes Golf and Tennis Club. We have great food, a lot of fun and great speakers. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets Friday mornings at 7 a.m. at The Dunes Golf & Tennis Club. Guests are welcome.

The emblem will be offered at auction during the clubs annual Spaghetti Dinner, to be held in February. Alves, who opened The Jac in May, expressed her enthusiasm in becoming an active member of the Sanibel community. Donating the Jacaranda sign to help the Kiwanis Clubs charitable efforts launches my commitment to the island that has so warmly welcomed me and my staff, she said. Current Kiwanis president Jason Smith and Kiwanis board member and past president Eric Pfeifer accepted the sign from Alves. Pfeifer called the gift from Alves a link between Sanibels history and Kiwanis charitable endeavors. Revenues from the spaghetti supper and its silent and live auctions provide essential support to dozens of island causes. We hope that other businesses will join with Eve and Kiwanis in finding creative means to support island nonprofits, he said. The Kiwanis Spaghetti Dinner is held annually at The Community House. It features an all you can eat Italian pasta dinner with spaghetti, meatballs and sauce, salad, garlic bread, wine or soda. The dinner concludes in the Great Hall with dessert and coffee, music and dancing, a raffle and two auctions. Revenues from the Kiwanis Spaghetti Dinner, a Sanibel tradition since the 1980s, fund island youth recreational and educational activities as well as the scholarship program. Kiwanis International is dedicated to Serving the Children of the World. The Kiwanis Club of Sanibel & Captiva, founded in 1973, distributes approximately $100,000 annually to dozens of causes that help children of the islands and Southwest Florida.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 24, 201834 Albert and Victoria were interested in marrying as they had cohabitated for many years, but they had not tied the knot. Both were retired Albert was widowed and Victorias former relationship ended in divorce. Albert and Victoria had separate assets, with Alberts estate being the larger of the two. Albert wanted to enter into a prenuptial agreement with Victoria before taking his vows. Victoria was offended at the idea. They had been through multiple sets of attorneys mostly divorce lawyers unable to come to an agreement that would then open the door to a beginning of a new stage in their lives. So they continued to cohabitate, both wanting to marry but at a standstill as far as the nuptial agreement went. Youre looking at the prenuptial agreement all wrong, I suggested when they came to visit. Both of them seemed puzzled at my thought. I continued, Youre looking at it the way a divorce attorney would look at a prenuptial and not the way an estate planning attorney would look at it. What do you mean? Albert asked. So far, youve described a scenario where Alberts attorneys were trying to give Victoria as little as possible in the event of a divorce or Alberts death. At the same time, it appears that Victorias attorneys were trying to do the exact opposite get Victoria as much as possible in either event. Isnt that to be expected? Victoria asked. I suppose so, I added, but its no surprise that when you come at a situation from opposite ends of the spectrum, its harder to agree where the middle is. What if we started at a point that you both consider the middle and work from there? Albert and Victoria seemed to like that approach. So lets look at the reasons youre wishing to enter into a nuptial agreement first, and see if we can work into what you both might consider a fair middle ground. I said. During our discussion, I discovered that they both had valid concerns about the future of their relationship. Albert wanted a life companion that would be there for him in sickness and in health, til death do they part. He was concerned that when the going got tough, Victoria would bail. Without a nuptial agreement, she might take half of what he owned in that event, and she wouldnt have lived up to their bargain. Victoria was worried that even if she was there until the end, there was nothing that would prevent Albert from leaving everything to his children, and nothing to her. While she recognized that Alberts children should be entitled to as much as half of his estate at the time of his death, he had promised her that he would be there financially for her in her elderly years. I began by asking, What would both of you living up to your promises look like? Albert and Victoria described a scenario where they stay together until the end. If Albert died first, Victoria would want the income from half of his estate, along with a life estate in the home where they resided together. She would expect Alberts estate to dip into principal if she needed it for important emergencies such as health, maintenance and support if her assets were insufficient for those purposes. Albert agreed with Victorias thoughts. My next question got tougher. So lets look at what the penalty should be if either of you doesnt live up to your promise of til death do us part. What happens if you get divorced before that time? After some discussion, it was agreed that there would be a sliding scale starting at 10 percent and moving its way up to 35 percent of the estate for Victoria if they got divorced. The scale would be based upon the number of years together. It didnt rise to 50 percent because that was the amount agreed upon if they lived up to each others promises. There had to be some kind of penalty for the failure to get to that point. Provided they stayed together to the end, Albert agreed that Victoria would get a life estate in the residence plus a marital trust for 50 percent of the value of his estate excluding the residence if she survived him. The remainder of his estate would be distributed to his children. He was willing to put this promise into the nuptial agreement, draft a new will and trust to evidence his promise, and attach it to the agreement as an exhibit. In order to have a valid nuptial agreement, both sides had to be represented by separate attorneys, and thats what we did to actually draft the agreement. But before we got to that point, this initial meeting was critical. What I tried to do was change the way that Albert and Victoria viewed the nuptial agreement. Rather than it be an adversarial zero sum game process, I tried to turn it into a more detailed understanding, describing each others expectations surrounding their marriage. During the course of our one meeting, we were able to come to a middle ground that made them both happy. I dont think that middle ground could have been achieved had we not talked about the reasons that they wanted to get married, what they felt their expectations were of one another, and how meeting those expectations should be rewarded (or penalized) if they were met or not. Albert and Victoria were both relieved and thankful once we got this emotionally trying mess out of the way. I hope that if you find yourself in a similar situation, you can look at it like Albert and Victoria were able to and come to a reasonable middle ground. Craig R. Hersch.

Andrea Centola and Michelle Martin plan to stay into early summer 2019 as part of the refuges internship program supported by the Ding Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge (DDWS). Centola, originally from Rochester, New York, most recently lived on the Big Island of Hawaii, completing an internship for the U.S. Geological Survey at its Kilauea field station. She graduated in 2015 with a bachelors degree in environmental science from the College at Brockport, State University of New York, where she did her field study on terrestrial ecology. My favorite part of Sanibel and the refuge is the manatee sightings, Centola said. I have never seen them before, so I am very excited every time they show up to the surface. Martin comes to the refuge from South Texas, where she conducted small mammal trapping and avian point counts for Texas A&M University. She graduated in 2016 from Florida State University in Tallahassee with bachelor degrees in neuroscience and animal behavior. So far, I have loved the old Florida feel the refuge allows visitors and staff alike to experience while among the mangroves and tropical hammock, said Martin, who plans to concentrate her refuge time on avian behavior. DDWS provides living stipends and other benefits for about a dozen interns each year. The refuge supports interns and resident volunteers with free housing. Our interns bring youthful energy, enthusiasm and creativity to the refuge team, said Supervisory Refuge Ranger Toni Westland. At the same time, the program gives students and recent graduates an opportunity to learn hands-on about the environment and refuge operations. For more information about the internship programs, contact Westland at 472-1100 ext. 237.

It May Be A Long Shot, But Red Sox Could Tie Or Set A New Recordby Ed FrankIts seldom mentioned, and its probably still a long shot, but the blistering pace of the 2018 Boston Red Sox gives them the opportunity to tie or break baseballs record of 116 wins in a single season. The record is held by the Seattle Mariners who went 11646 in 2001 and the Chicago Cubs who won 116 games way back in 1906 in a 152-game schedule. Heres the scenario at the beginning of this week: Through 125 games played, Boston was 88-37, a (.704) winning percentage, the best by far in baseball. The Red Sox need to win 29 of the 37 games remaining a (.783) percentage to break the record. Thats an ambitious task, but not impossible. Heres why: Twenty-one of those 37 are home games at Fenway Park four against Cleveland, two against Miami, three against Houston, three against the New York Mets, three against Baltimore, three against Toronto and three with the New York Yankees. Only the Yankees, Cleveland and Houston have winning records. The 16 road games are three at Tampa Bay, four against the Chicago White Sox, three at Atlanta, three with the Yankees and three with Cleveland. The road schedule is more difficult as only the White Sox have a losing record. As the last six weeks of the season winds down, this will be an interesting chase to follow. You can be sure if the Red Sox approach that record, it will be a growing story day by day. And the pressure on the Red Sox will be greater each day. If you ask anyone in the Red Sox organization, they will tell you their only interest is first winning the American League Eastern Division title, the American League Championship and the World Series. If the 116-winning mark is broken, that would be icing on the cake.Miracle Chase Division Title And Just One-Half Game Out Of First PlaceWith just 13 games remaining in the seasons second-half, the Fort Myers Miracle baseball team trailed first-place Charlotte by just one-half game in the Florida State League South Division. The Miracle began this week with a record of 33-23. Of the 13 games remaining, the final seven will be home games starting Monday four against Bradenton and three with Clearwater. The regular season ends September 2. Two first-round draft selections by the Minnesota Twins have given the Miracle a big boost in the later stages of the current campaign. Shortstop Royce Lewis, the No. 1 overall pick in 2017 is hitting .307 in 34 games played with the Miracle. And Alex Kirilloff, an outfielder, who was a first round, number 15, pick by the Twins in 2015 was hitting .375 in 52 games with the Miracle.

We appreciate when members of our community give back in support of Golisano Childrens Hospital, especially when it is intergenerational, said Carly Majewski, Golisano Childrens Hospital NICU nurse manager. To have Shell Point residents spend time decorating and personalizing these outfits to give to our smallest and most vulnerable patients speaks volumes to their kindness and generosity. Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida, the only pediatric hospital of its kind located between Tampa and Miami, opened a new building just over a year ago at Lee Healths HealthPark Medical Center. The 128-bed, seven-story facility is designed to make children feel like they are in a fun, safe space rather than an institutional setting. The building is filled with bright colors, activities and interactive stations for both patients and visitors. The Shell Point project is part of the assisted living Giving Back program series, which connects assisted living residents with ways to participate in community and social involvement initiatives that benefit local nonprofit organizations. Few activities offer as much happiness and fulfillment as using our time and efforts to help when needed, said Amanda Pendergast, assisted living activities leader at Shell Point. Many of our residents have worked with children in the past and were passionate about continuing that admirable work.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 24, 201838 Doctor and DieticianFruit Thoughtsby Ross Hauser, MD and Marion Hauser, MS, RDUnprocessed, whole fruit is a healthy choice for most people, especially over processed fruit products or juice. Some people say they want to avoid fruit due to sugar but dont have a problem gorging on pastries. This doesnt make sense. Fruit is a healthier choice than sugary desserts. There are many fun, creative ways to blend fresh fruit with protein and vegetables for balanced meals or snacks. While one mango has a whopping 45 grams of sugar, they can be used in small amounts to make mango salsa to top fish or chicken, or blended with herbs and olive oil to make a salad dressing or marinade for grilling meat and veggie skewers. Another favorite fruit, pears, have 17 grams of sugar each. Try a few slices mixed into Greek yogurt, add chunks to a salad, or spread some goat cheese on a pear slice for protein-rich treats. Of course, apple slices with peanut or almond butter is always a classic too yum! Whole fruit takes time to chew and digest, and is also filling, so you are less inclined to overeat. Conversely, fiber and antioxidants are lost during processing of many fruit-based packaged foods and drinks. Fruit juice is associated with higher body weight in children and higher blood pressure in adults. A cup of orange juice has about the same sugar content as a cup of soda. Choose whole fruit rather than the liquid form. Not all fruits are loaded with sugar. An entire apricot has 3.2 grams of sugar, while a guava has 5 grams and is really high in fiber. Try these diced over cottage cheese. Raspberries have 5 grams of sugar and strawberries have 7 grams per cup. Add berries to brighten up dull oatmeal or just enjoy a handful on their own. Delicious and loaded with antioxidants! This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

Many families are thinking about getting their kids back to school and all the preparation that this entails, so I thought it would be a good time to bring attention to some of the other things that we tend to think about while summer is winding down. Continuing education what things do you need to complete to keep licenses current or to get more knowledgeable in your field? Learning should always be a part of your life. Whether you take an actual class or subscribe to a service or organization that can help you grow and learn in your field, this is a wonderful time to take advantage of those opportunities. End-of-year goals what things can you implement in your daily tasks in order to meet the goals that you have set before you or your company? What a great time to reassess those goals and to put the steps in place to make them really happen. Make a list of the goals, what they were for the year and where they stand right now. Then, list the things that need to happen in order to meet it. Reorganizing this is a time of year that is great for cleaning out the clutter from your closets, cabinets, basements, garages or vacation properties in order to make more space and to organize things to get ready for a new season with a refreshed outlook. Remember, after things have sat in one place for more than a few years without being used, it is time to take a look at whether you have a need for them at all or if you can get rid of them by donating them or giving them away. Plan a shopping day make a list of things you want to buy to spruce up your wardrobe, home or office, and plan a day to go out and have some fun shopping around for them. Make it a special day that you set aside and dont have to rush back, and take some time to enjoy browsing and shopping. Maybe you could also stop to have a nice lunch or dinner as shopping should be an enjoyable adventure. Regardless of what this time of year makes you think about or concentrate on, remember to cherish the fact that most people are thinking back to school and there is something cool and refreshing about that, so get on the bandwagon and get your back to school hat on, get educated, set goals, organize and go shopping. My affirmation for you this week is: I am preparing for a new season to learn and grow and will continue to refresh my outlook for success!

Volunteers Sought For Reading Program United Way of Lee, Hendry, Glades, and Okeechobee is recruiting volunteers for the United Way ReadingPals program to read to 4and 5-year-olds at 17 school sites in Lee and Hendry counties. Reading Pals help build a strong foundation for literacy and a love of reading in young children. Children who are read to are more likely to become good readers. Children who read at grade level by the third grade are four times more likely to graduate from high school. The ReadingPals literacy program requires a commitment of only one hour a week during the school year. During this time, volunteers are matched with pairs of pre-k or kindergarten age children who need extra help. Pals build a meaningful relationship by providing the individual attention many kids need to thrive. Volunteers are needed in all areas of the community. The schools in Lee County are: Bonita Springs Elementary, Hector Cafferata Elementary, Christa McAuliffe Elementary, Colonial Elementary, The Early Childhood Center, J. Colin English Elementary, Gladiolus Child Development, New Horizons Afterschool in Estero, Orangewood Elementary, Orange River Elementary, Pinewoods Elementary, Sunshine Elementary, Villas Elementary and HealthPark Child Development Center. In Hendry County, ReadingPals volunteer at Krome Child Development, Childrens Garden in LaBelle and Harlem Academy in Clewiston. The program is supported by the Childrens Movement of Florida and Publix Charities. To learn more, contact Nancy Coker at nancyc@unitedwaylee. org or 433-7544.

SUN deaRPharmacistHelp In Case Youre Losing Your Mindby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Readers:Dont you hate it when youre introduced and you cant remember the persons name? What about remembering whether or not you already told someone that story? Its like one day you go from young to old. This stuff seems to happen more and more as you age. Why does it happen to some of us, and not to others? Ive wondered. I think it has to do with elevated homocysteine, at least in part. Emerging research about homocysteine connects it to neurofibrillary tangles, and those are associated with progressive memory disorders like Alzheimers. Did you know that NSAIDs and oral contraceptives are strong drug muggers of folate? If you deplete folate (vitamin B9), you block your methylation cycle, homocysteine builds up and memory becomes impaired. Perhaps maintaining brain function is related to declining levels of another B vitamin called methylcobalamin. Its also known as vitamin B12, a nutrient that is manufactured by your intestinal flora. Today, health food stores and online e-tailers offer various supplements that you can buy over the counter, but of course, ask your doctor whats right for you. I couldnt possibly know whats right for each of you, and this article reaches millions of people, so again, find out if these simple nutritional fixes are ideal for you: Acetyl L-Carnitine The amino acid Acetyl-L-Carnitine crosses the blood-brain barrier more readily than regular plain L-Carnitine, and it helps the body make acetylcholine, the brains super neurotransmitter that is necessary for healthy mood and optimal cognitive function, as well as muscle health, a side benefit. Lions Mane A 2014 study concluded that lions mane promotes the growth of nerve cells in the brain. Lions mane increases NGF (Nerve Growth Factor), which then encourages the growth of new neurites. NGF encourages neurons to connect to each other, communicate better and, simply put, this helps you learn faster and remember things better. Bacopa Monnieri Bacopa monnieri exerts a strong protective effect on the brain because it inhibits the production of acetylcholinesterase, an enzyme that breaks down acetylcholine, and acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter that you want a lot of in your brain. Gotu Kola Gotu kola may help to increase the growth of neurons, promoting brain function, reducing mental fatigue and supporting memory. Phosphatidylserine Phosphatidylserine begins to decline with age. It helps connect the wires upstairs and improve nerve impulse firing. Green Tea Its found in green tea, and EGCG can cross the blood-brain barrier. A 2012 study in mice found that supplemental EGCG promotes brain plasticity in the hippocampus area of the brain. Today should be an important day for you, particularly if youre now really thinking seriously about your memory for the first time. Im not a fan of the wait and see approach when it comes to your brain. Our life experiences and family relationships as well as friendships are important memories. Your job depends on your ability to remember the simplest tasks. If youd like to read the longer version of this article, just sign up for my newsletter at www.suzycohen.com, and Ill email it to you.

It will invariably deepen everyones insights, strengthen bonds and expand your understanding of self and others. Here are some suggestions. 1. Think about whats most important to you. Take some time to write about your most cherished values: a. At the end of your life, when you reflect back, what will mean the most to you? What do you want your legacy to be? b. What has been and is your purpose in this life? Do you believe you have a specific destiny? If so, are you on your path? What is your moral compass revealing? c. What do you enjoy doing the most? What are your gifts and strengths? d. What do you want to learn more about? 2. Ask your inner guidance system for guidance. The answers are within, and you can retrieve the answers from the subconscious mind. He/she will never lead you astray. Also, you can always ask a wise teacher or guide for assistance. a. Take some time to set the tone for the day through some breath work. Close your eyes and take a few deep relaxing breaths. Imagine you are walking down a staircase one step at a time with each exhalation. At the bottom of the stairs, imagine you go through a beautiful double door then follow a path through beautiful woods until you come across a bench. Sit down. This is where your inner mentor will meet you. b. Ask your mentor a question you want an answer to. The answer may come to you immediately, or perhaps it will take some time. Trust the process. Thank your mentor for showing up. c. Once you return to full conscious awareness, it will be helpful to journal your experience. 3. Create a vision and mission statement. Now that you have spent some time contemplating your values and seeking guidance from your own wise self, write some vision and mission statements that focus your intention. Make sure these statements are specific and put them where you can see them daily so you will be reminded of what you want to manifest for now and your future. I hope you will find these tips worthwhile and ones that you can do every year or every decade. Its up to you.

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 PAWS Of SanibelSashaThis is Sasha. She was picked up Wednesday night, August 15, on Airport Road off of Casa Ybel by the Sanibel Police after a call from a local resident. Sasha appears young, approximately 1 to 2 years old, has no microchip and is a tan/black tabby. It appears she is not yet spayed. She is very sweet and gentle. Sasha is being boarded at Coral Vet in Fort Myers. Her combo test for FIV/FeLV/Heartworms was negative. She has been given immunizations for FVRCP, FeLV, Rabies, and given a heart-worm and flea preventative. If you recognize Sasha, and/or know her family, call Pam at PAWS at 472-4823. If we cant locate Sashas people in the next couple of weeks, she will be available for adoption. If youre interested in adopting or fostering Sasha, call Pam. Sasha Lee County Domestic Animal ServicesTrina And TurboHello, my name is Trina. I am a 3-year-old female terrier mix who is a pint-sized cutie that has ears for days. I have an underbite that will make you smile every time you see me. I am shy for about 2.2 seconds and will warm up almost immediately. I am curious about everything around me and these ears perk up with interest when I see or hear anything. I am at the perfect age where I am past the puppy chewing stage but young enough to have a lot of playful living left. Stop by to meet me today. My adoption fee is $75. Hi, Im Turbo. I am a 4-month-old male domestic shorthair who is a part of Lee County Domestic Animal Services Fab Five. I am one of five kittens left in the shelter after our big Clear the Shelters eventlast Saturday. As part of the Fab Five, my adoption fee is being waived because my looks make me priceless.

Top 10 Real Estate SalesCourtesy of Royal Shell Real Estate47 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 24, 2018 My Stars FOR WEEK OF AUGUST 27, 2018Aries (March 21 to April 19) Your honesty might upset some people, but you inevitably win more admirers for having the courage to tell the truth when others are more likely to scramble for cover. Taurus (April 20 to May 20) Your efforts to defend your project begin to show favorable results. You should soon be able to win over even the most determined detractors who had lined up against it. Gemini (May 21 to June 20) You win praise for your selfless efforts in a very difficult situation. But be careful not to allow your generous nature to be exploited by those who have their own agenda. Cancer (June 21 to July 22) A trusted colleague sheds light on a recent spate of puzzling workplace situations. This should give you the information you need to bring to your superiors attention. Leo (July 23 to August 22) A shift in workplace management could be helpful for talented Leos and Leonas who have been waiting to have their accomplishments rewarded by receptive leadership. Virgo (August 23 to September 22) A misunderstanding between you and someone you care for should be corrected immediately. This relationship is too important to lose over a bruised ego. Libra (September 23 to October 22) A welcome piece of good news helps clear the air in a family situation. A job-related incident also eases as more information provides a clearer focus on the problem. Scorpio (October 23 to November 21) Quick action to heal bruised feelings pays off in a big way.
