But early next year, the Captiva native will grace the stage at one of the worlds most acclaimed blues festivals in Memphis, Tennessee. On August 26, Jensen was selected as the Youth Solo Showcase winner of the International Blues Challenge 2018 Regional Competition, held at the Rhythm House Dinner Club in Fort Myers. That earned him the opportunity to represent Southwest Florida at the illustrious international blues showcase. I really enjoyed it, said Jensen, 14, who noted he performed seven songs in 20 minutes before a panel of judges from the Southwest Florida Blues Society at the regional competition. I performed there last year, but I only had a week to prepare for it. This year, I was definitely better prepared. Jensen performed five original songs, along with two covers (Matt Schofields Livewire and Eric Claptons Further On Up The Road ) at last months blues showcase. The Marty Stokes Band comprised of guitarist/vocalist Marty Stokes, bass guitarist Daryl Best, saxophone player Jennifer Mazziotti and drummer Dave Murphy also performed there, winning the Peoples Choice Award. This was the fourth time weve won the Peoples Choice Award (at the regional competition), and in 2016, we won the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, said Stokes. We really enjoy the experience every time we do it. According to Stokes, he is getting ready for this years 3rd annual Sanibel Blues & Jazz Festival, which will be held on Sunday, November 4. Headlined by Louisiana Music Hall of Fame inductee Kenny Neal, a three-time Grammy Award nominee, the all-day festival will include guitarist JP Soars, The Marty Stokes Band, Johnny Jensen and the FGCU Jazz Ensemble. Jensen, currently a high school freshman at Canterbury School in Fort Myers, said he is looking forward to taking part in the highly touted blues competition in January, and feels incredible honored to represent the continued on page 8 Johnny Jensen performing at last years Sanibel Blues & Jazz Festival photo by Jeff LysiakDing Darling Days Amateur Photo Contest Deadline NearsSeptember 15 marks the deadline for the 26th annual Ding Darling Days Amateur Nature Photography Contest.

The trails at Bailey Tract are open to hikers and bicyclists following a threemonth marsh habitat restoration project. Because of the tracts popularity, the refuge had opted to do the work during the slower summer months, but has now reopened it for full, free public use. The project included hydrologic enhancements that benefit most of the wildlife that inhabits the tract.

Paintings by Lora Lea Plummer will be on view in Fellowship Hall throughout the month of September. Plummer, a Florida native, received a degree in graphic design from SouthWest Florida State College and ever since has been using her talent and skills to create paintings with materials that include acrylic paints, beads, and colored glass and techniques that give her work a multi-dimensional aspect. The first thing people notice when viewing her collection is the intense bright colors. Her style has a sense of whimsy, a bit of the abstract, and a ton of passion. In addition to pursuing her love of art, Plummer is a teacher at Sanibel Christian Preschool. Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ is located at 2050 Periwinkle Way. The paintings are for sale, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the church. The exhibit may be viewed during office hours when Fellowship Hall is not otherwise being used and on Sundays after the 7:45 and 10 a.m. services.

Sanibel-Captiva Boy Scout Troop 1740 raises the flag at the refuge photo provided Islander Bikes 90 Miles To Celebrate His 90th Birthdaysubmitted by Vance Carlson, Park Rapids (MN) EnterpriseFred Nordstrom developed a love of biking at an early age. Eight decades later, Nordstrom is still an avid bicyclist. I started biking in the 1930s. We lived on a farm in Iowa and I would bike to school every day, said Nordstrom. I still bike twice a week with the Hubbard Bicycle Club (in Park Rapids, Minnesota). Ive been very fortunate Ive had good health to do this. To demonstrate his good health, Nordstrom completed a 90-mile bike ride to commemorate his 90th birthday. Nordstrom broke the ride into six 15-mile trips, completing the final leg on August 24 on the Heartland Trail. The challenge to bike his age began 15 years ago when Nordstroms friend Bill Skelton challenged him to bike 75 miles in one day to commemorate his 75th birthday. Skelton golfed 75 holes on his 75th birthday, so Nordstrom accepted the challenge to bike 75 miles during the Headwaters 100 to celebrate his 75th birthday. The two duplicated those feats on their 80th birthdays, with Skelton golfing 80 holes and Nordstrom biking 80 miles in a single day. Nordstrom continued the challenge every five years since, although it took Nordstrom 2 days to bike the 85 miles five years ago. The 90 miles took a little longer. I go a little slower now, said Nordstrom. It takes a little more time now. Nordstrom and his wife, Marj, were original members when Curt and Ruth Bakken formed the Hubbard Bicycle Club in 1996. The Bakkens were avid bikers in Europe and several members of the club decided to join them on the first of several international biking adventures. The first trip was to Portugal in 1996, and the Nordstroms attended yearly biking trips to Germany, Czechoslovakia, Holland, Hungary, France and New Zealand before making their final biking trip overseas to Norway in 2008. Those trips consisted of 40-mile bike rides each day. In addition to those yearly trips overseas, the Nordstroms biked every Monday afternoon and Friday morning with their fellow Hubbard cyclists. Marj retired from biking last year at the age of 90, but Fred is still going strong. I try to go 10 to 15 miles, said Fred. The younger 70-year-olds go 20 to 25 miles. With another challenge complete, Nordstrom is looking ahead to continuing the trend and biking 95 miles for his 95th birthday in 2023. Every year is another challenge, said Nordstrom, who still rides the same bike he used on his 75th birthday. So far, I have no balance problems. As long as I have my balance, Ill continue to bicycle. (Note: Fred and Marj Nordstrom are longtime Sanibel Island residents and active members of the Sanibel Bicycle Club.)

The water quality treatment park will be located in the vicinity of Periwinkle Way and Casa Ybel Road, on six acres of city-owned land known as the Jordan Marsh Preserve and 1.3 acres of land within SCCFs Bob Wigley Preserve. The primary goal of this project is to improve water quality in the Sanibel Slough to help meet Florida water quality standards. Secondary goals of the project are to enhance existing wildlife habitat on the site, provide recreational opportunities, and educate park visitors on the various Best Management Practices (BMPs) used to improve water quality. The project is being funded in part by the South Florida Water Management District Cooperative Funding Program, Lee County Community Park Impact Fees and city budgeted funds. The project is anticipated to be complete by January 2, 2019. A temporary stop sign and stop bar will be placed on the Shared Use Path along Casa Ybel Road at the construction entrance. The public is reminded to use caution when traveling through the construction zone and to adhere to all posted signage until construction is complete. Contact the City of Sanibel Natural Resources Department at 472-3700 if you have any questions regarding this project.

This past June, Jensen had the opportunity to perform at two music venues in Nashville, taking the stage at Douglas Corner Caf and Browns Diner. There, he met several industry representatives who expressed an interest in his music. He also played alongside Bryan Lee, the legendary blind guitarist known as The Braille Blues Daddy. (Lee) said Whos that on stage with me? Gina Jensen recalled from the moment her son shared the stage with the Bourbon Street icon. Because Im liking what Im hearing. In addition to Januarys International Blues Challenge show, Jensen is also looking forward to the upcoming release of his first album, titled What I Call Me The five-song EP will be available on September 10 at his live performances and via music service platforms, including Amazon, iTunes and Spotify.

Plant SmartVirginia Pepperweedby Gerri ReavesVirginia pepperweed ( Lepidium virginicum ) is a native wildflower of the mustard family that grows throughout the state. Commonly considered a weed, this useful pretty plant grows up to three feet tall. Its found along sidewalks and roads, in undeveloped lots and yards, and in disturbed areas and fields. It prefers dry conditions and full sun. Also called peppergrass and poor mans pepper, it is a veritable salad unto itself and is highly nutritious. The rosette of leaves on the ground can be eaten as salad greens or cooked greens. They taste a bit peppery or watercress-like, thus another common name, Virginia cress. Once a plant has bloomed, the leaves up the stalk are tough and bitter, however. The pungent seeds can be sprinkled on greens, and the white root can substitute for horseradish when ground up and vinegar is added. Dense spikes of tiny white flowers bloom year-round. Clusters measure about four inches long, and each four-petaled cross-shaped flower has two stamens. The lobed leaves are linear, lance-like, or elliptical and narrower on the upper stalk. The rounded flattened seed pods are about one-eighth of an inch wide. This herb is a host, or larval, plant for the checkered white and the great southern white butterflies. It is used as a diuretic and as a treatment for scurvy, coughs and asthma. The seed stems can be dried and used in flower arrangements. Sources: Florida Wild Flowers and Roadside Plants by C.

Volunteers can help out at the next scheduled cordgrass planting on Friday, September 7 starting at 8 a.m. at the Bailey Tract. An RSVP is required to assist in the planting; call 472-1100 ext. 237. At the Tarpon Bay Recreation Area, the boat ramp is open for nonmotorized ($7 fee) and motorized ($10 fee) boat launching available through Tarpon Bay Explorers, the refuges recreation concession. The ramp had been closed for nearly two years because of conflicts associated with the construction of the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) Marine Lab and replacement of two sea walls and a boat dock at Tarpon Bay Explorers. The new lab, a partnership between the refuge and SCCF to enhance water quality monitoring in the refuge and beyond, was completed in August along with the sea walls and dock.

Snook And Redfish Still Closed To Harvestby Capt. Matt MitchellUsually during the first week of September I would be writing about the opening of snook season but, on August 30, the FWC temporarily made both snook and redfish catch and release only from Manatee county to Collier County. This executive order is in response to the red tide we have experienced and is in effect until at least the next FWC meeting Sept 26. The fact that these fisheries are closed to harvest is a good thing. Both snook and redfish fisheries have taken a hit by this never-ending red tide. These iconic species of fish need protection and are way too valuable to be seen as just a plate of food. On the down side though, this news-making closure will only bring another wave of negative press and more miss information, further grinding our tourism to even more of a halt than we have already experienced. While getting out on the water this week, Im finally seeing a few more boats out than in the past several weeks. Conditions have rebounded and, although there is little to no work for any of our area fishing guides or basically any water-based business, fishing was good. After catching shiners in the middle sound, we easily caught limits of large mangrove snapper and also released a dozen or so snook while just out playing around. Jacks and grouper also bent the rods while bouncing spot to spot. Bait and bird life is slowly getting back to normal with certain places just alive with life. In the northern sound, once you make the turn north past the powerlines, the sound was free of dead fish. Areas aroung the Sanibel Lighthouse are still a little littered with a few floating fish. I think it is more due to the east winds and strong tides pushing floating fish in and out. With 140 miles of our coastline experiencing effects of this supercharged red tide, its just going to take time to clear out. Cancellations have affected both hotels and every fishing guide as northern and european clients who normally book us throughout the summer have been lead to believe the red tide is of Biblical proportions and will make them sick. Misinformation is all over with people believing there is no sea life left. When I have boated clients out on the water, they are amazed how good our fishing and ecosystem is after reading and watching the shocking news reports. After the slowest August and Labor Day weekend for business anyone can remember, September bookings are thankfully up. Government, along with the FWC, need to come to the realization that a red tide bloom of this size is not naturally occurring and that making the levies round Lake O stronger to hold more water iisis not the solution as it will only allow them to hold more water for farm interests and increase the nutrient rich water releases. Something really drastic needs to happen before all the sea life in our beloved estuary is destroyed for future generations. 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.

13 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 7, 2018Community Support Made Camp A Successsubmitted by Leah BieryThe current red tide bloom presented many challenges for Sanibel Sea Schools summer camp team, with water conditions unsafe for swimming in many locations around the island. During the last four weeks of camp, counselors made frequent last minute changes to the schedule to ensure that campers would have a safe and enjoyable experience. They received an outpouring of support from local businesses and fellow nonprofit organizations to make the end of summer a success. We are all about experience based learning at Sanibel Sea School, and most of our summer camp activities are water based, said Director of Education Nicole Finnicum. The impacts of red tide made it very difficult to host a great ocean-themed camp, since we couldnt engage in our usual favorite pastimes like snorkeling and surfing. I am so proud of our staff and our community for making it happen, she added. Campers were treated to land-based activities and field trips, including visits to the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum, JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge and Visitor Center, and Periwinkle Park. They were also invited to explore some of the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) land, and had a chance to cool off at the Sanibel Recreation Centers pool facility. A trip to create chalk art for Baileys General Store patrons was a favorite among participants, as was a stop at Dairy Queen for some cold, delicious ice cream. We are so grateful for the support, said Finnicum. I cant believe how lucky we are to live and work in a place where people are there for one another even during the hardest times. 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.

Shell Of The WeekFragile Surf Clamby Jos H. Leal, PhD, BaileyMatthews National Shell Museum Science Director and CuratorThe Fragile Surf Clam, Mactrotoma fragilis (Gmelin, 1791) is a local clam of the surf clam family Mactridae that may reach about 45 mm (about 1.8 inches) in length. Fragile Surf Clams, as its name indicates, has a thin, but relatively resilient shell, with characteristic ridges on the posterior end. The periostracum, or outer, dark shell layer, is more predominant on the posterior end, and the shell never completely closes in that area.

Alligator Harvest Under WayFloridas statewide alligator harvest, nationally and internationally recognized as a model program for the sustainable use of a renewable natural resource, began August 15. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) issued more than 7,500 permits, including an additional 1,313 county-wide permits, as a method to help manage the alligator population. Alligators are a conservation success story in Florida. They were included on the original federal endangered species list in 1967. Conservation efforts allowed the population to rebound, and they were removed from the list in 1987. Today, the states alligator population is estimated at 1.3 million alligators and has been stable for many years. For over 30 years, the Statewide Alligator Harvest Program has been providing sustainable hunting opportunities throughout the state. The FWC establishes management units with appropriate harvest quotas based on research and proven science to ensure the long-term well-being of the alligator resource. Recreational alligator hunting is just one part of the FWCs overall approach to managing the species. The FWCs Statewide Nuisance Alligator Program (SNAP) is another. People who believe a specific alligator poses a threat to people, pets or property should call FWCs toll-free Nuisance Alligator Hotline at 866-FWC-GATOR (866-392-4286). When someone concerned about an alligator calls the Nuisance Alligator Hotline, a FWCcontracted nuisance alligator trapper will be dispatched to resolve the situation. In addition, as part of a comprehensive effort to achieve alligator management goals, the FWC has issued an additional 21 Targeted Harvest Area permits that encompass 79 new areas. THA permits allow a managing authority to work directly with a designated FWC-contracted nuisance alligator trapper, making the process for removing nuisance alligatorsmore proactive and streamlined. THA permits, which have been in use for almost two decades, define the areas boundaries, the duration of the permit and how many alligators can be removed. continued on page 20 The Fragile Surf Clam, Mactrotoma fragilis, from Sanibel photo by Jos H.

Florida is home to 46 species of native snakes, only six of which are venomous. Although there is a widespread fear and misunderstanding of this animal, most species are harmless to humans and form vital links in the ecosystem. Snakes are extremely valuable because they are efficient at monitoring pest populations without relying on chemical pesticides which can degrade the environment and harm other animal species. One of CROWs animal ambassadors will be present. Wednesday, September 12, 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. $25 per person, advance registration required Wildlife Walk with Rehabilitators and Staff (hospital tour). Wildlife Walks are approximately 1.5 hours: a 45-minute presentation with a 45-minute tour. Not recommended for children under the age of 13. Photography opportunity following the tour with an animal ambassador. Wednesday, September 12, 11 a.m. adults $12, ages 4 to 12 $7, age 3 and under no charge Patient Profiles: Virginia Opossums (daily presentation). Virginia opossums are the only marsupial, or pouched mammal, native to the United States. They are highly adaptable animals and can live in a variety of habitats, both natural and human made. Although it may not be obvious to some people, opossums are a unique member of Floridas wildlife, playing an important role in the function of a healthy ecosystem. One of CROWs animal ambassadors will be present. Thursday, September 13, 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. $25 per person, advance registration required Wildlife Walk with Rehabilitators and Staff (hospital tour). Wildlife Walks are approximately 1.5 hours: a 45-minute presentation with a 45-minute tour. Not recommended for children under the age of 13.

Thursday, September 13, 11 a.m. adults $12, ages 4 to 12 $7, age 3 and under no charge Patient Profiles: Gopher Tortoises (daily presentation). The life of a gopher tortoise revolves around its burrow. These tortoises are found digging from southern Georgia to southeast Florida. Because of its contributions to the ecosystem, it is classified as a keystone species. CROWs presenter explains why they are admitted and how the medical staff treats this species. One of CROWs animal ambassadors will be present. ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 7, 201816 Vote For The Environmentsubmitted by Bruce Neill, PhDOrdinarily, this space is used to talk about all the wonders, benefits and techniques of paddling. But these are not ordinary times. Last Sunday morning, I arose before dawn to watch the full moon set, then go for a sunrise paddle, which is typically a great experience a bit of the best of both worlds. However, the Gulf of Mexico was too toxic for a safe paddle, red tide concentrations were high and an onshore wind was blowing brevitoxins into the air. Undaunted, I moved to San Carlos Bay to launch there, only to find the beach littered with freshly dead fish and many more on the surface. Ordinarily, I am not easily deterred from a paddle. In fact, very few conditions keep me on shore. But the combination of the toxins and the stench of decomposing fish, after nearly three weeks of similar conditions, did the trick. I went back home and did other things. We need to use the harmful algal blooms of this summer to recall that we are all in this together. We all must shoulder the burden of blame, and we all have the ability to effect the change we would like to see. All too often, we want to blame corporations, industry and someone else. Its time we realize that our most powerful tool to help fix the water problems we face is the ballot. We must select our elected officials based on how well they have or will maintain the natural resource base that we all rely on. Ask questions about how they plan to correct current problems, and prevent future ones. Be certain that environmental issues are high on their priority list, and that they understand that the issue is really an economic one that will guide Southwest Floridas future. Lets vote to ensure we can always paddle on our waters. Ocean Tribe Paddlers is a club that helps the Southwest Florida paddling community better explore, enjoy and understand the ocean.

CROW Case Of The Week: If You Care, Leave It Thereby Bob PetcherAnimal lovers with good intentions should be praised for their caring ways. But sometimes, people who believe they are rescuing animals that have appeared to go astray can be doing more harm than good. This theory especially applies to baby animals. CROW officials admit that one of the busiest places in the clinic is the baby room. During spring months, the room is filled with baby mockingbirds, baby mourning doves and other baby bird species. This time of year, the room is filled with baby eastern gray squirrels. Unfortunately, most of these young squirrels have reportedly fallen from their nest or been dislodged during strong storms. In many of these cases, the immature mammals are in good health and are brought to CROW unnecessarily. CROW officials are currently very busy with the intake of baby squirrels and would like the public to know about the If You Care, Leave It There program. Currently, there are 45 baby squirrels in hospital, with more being admitted each day during the height of baby season, said Dr. Robin Bast, CROWs staff veterinarian. Squirrel moms are very devoted. They often have back-up nests made so that if something happens to one, they can just move their babies immediately to a new safe place. If babies fall from the nest, mom will usually retrieve them and put them back in the nest. Caring for a high number of baby squirrels is time-consuming due to the necessity of numerous feedings and incubator cleanings throughout the day. As squirrels get bigger, they are transitioned from a specialized milk diet onto a diet of solid food such as fruits, nuts and vegetables. Once old enough, they are moved to an outdoor enclosure until they are ready for release. Baby care is very time intensive. In addition to the staff and students, CROW has trained, dedicated volunteers that care for the babies every day. Some babies are so young that they need feedings very late in the evening or early in the morning almost around the clock, noted Dr. Bast. It is important to keep their incubators and enclosures clean to prevent incidence and spread of disease. Babies can be very messy, especially when learning to eat food on their own. If left unattended, that mess would be a great place for bacteria to grow and infection could occur. Before calling a rehabilitation clinic, finders are asked to leave these little animals alone unless there appears to be a clear injury or a fallen nest. If the original nest was destroyed and/or you cannot reach it if it is too high up in the tree, you can put the babies in a faux nest as close to the original nest as possible, and mom will retrieve the babies and continue to care for them, said Dr. Bast. To make a simple temporary nest, take a small plastic container, poke small holes in the bottom to allow for drainage if it rains, place some nesting material (like) pine straw, leaves, or grass inside, and secure this to the tree trunk or nearby bush, then place the babies inside. Putting the nest as high as you can reach may help prevent certain predators, such as feral cats, from discovering and disturbing the temporary nest until mom moves the babies. If you care, leave it there is the best rule to go by when it comes to baby animals. Most babies that are found outside of the nest are still receiving care from the parents, and may be going through normal development phases of exploration. These babies are often inadvertently abducted by a concerned person who does not realize that the parents are still providing care for the babies. Although our nursery is staffed with trained caregivers, there is no substitute for the real parents in addition to providing feeds, the real parents teach natural species behaviors which are important for survival and which we cannot fully mimic in a nursery continued on page 25 A baby squirrel is fed at the clinic photo by Brian Bohlman SUN 17 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 7, 2018 239.472.2328 www.sanibelthriller.comReservations are required Also Available for Private Charters Departing from Sanibel Marina 634 N.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 7, 201818 Refuge Issuing Free Passes For Fourth GradersAs part of the federal Every Kid in a Park initiative, JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel is participating by issuing free annual passes to any fourth grade student and homeschool equivalent in the U.S. during the 2018-19 school year. The passes are available and valid through August 2019 at any national wildlife refuge, national park or forest, and other federal land and provide free admission for every fourth grader, accompanying siblings up to age 15, and up to three accompanying adults. The Every Kid in a Park program is part of an ongoing effort to get kids outside and enjoying nature, said Toni Westland, supervisory refuge ranger at Ding Darling. That has been our goal for years, so we are taking it a step further to encourage fourth graders and their families. Obtaining the free annual pass a value of $80 requires fourth grade students to print out a voucher at www. everykidinapark.gov. Fourth graders should complete the voucher and take it to front desk at the admission-free Ding Darling Visitor & Education Center or the fee booth on Wildlife Drive to receive their pass. They must present a completed printed voucher; electronic forms are not accepted. We are working with local schools to promote this program, said Westland. We will be further promoting it at National Public Lands Day at the refuge on Saturday, September 22 and Ding Darling Days free Family Fun Day on Sunday, October 14. We are shooting to issue the most passes of any national wildlife refuge, and there are more than 550 of them. Support for promoting the passes comes from the Ding Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge (DDWS). For more information, call 472-1100 ext. 237.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 7, 201820 The Community HouseMushrooms by Resident Chef Jarred HarrisMushrooms are one of the most interesting edible things in the world. They are neither plant nor animal, they are fungi. There are over 150,000 varieties of mushrooms, but only 10,000 of those varieties are edible. These edible varieties have been used as a food source and as medicine in many cultures for centuries. The three most common varieties of mushrooms found in supermarkets are the portabella mushroom, button mushrooms and white mushrooms. All three are the same mushroom, but at different stages of maturity. Ancient Egyptians referred to mushrooms as the plant of immortality in hieroglyphics over 4,600 years ago. They believed mushrooms grew by magic, because of the way they could appear overnight. Mushrooms were used as food, exclusively for royalty and so prized in Egyptian society that commoners were forbidden to touch them. Mushrooms are an extremely underrated superfood. They are a good source of selenium, zinc and vitamin D. In fact, when exposed to sunlight, mushrooms generate vitamin D. Some create as much as a bottle of vitamin D supplements. The chaga mushroom is extremely high in antioxidants and contains betulinic acid, which is an anti-tumor compound. The turkey tail mushroom has been shown to strengthen immune systems of women with breast cancer. The king stropharia mushroom can filter E. coli bacteria from water and the oyster mushroom can break down oil from spills. The chicken of the woods mushroom is my favorite variety and it tastes just like chicken. Here is an interesting recipe to try: Wild Mushroom, Spinach and Goat Cheese Strudel Ingredients 1 pound mixed wild mushrooms (sliced) 2 tbsp. olive oil medium onion (finely diced) 1 clove garlic (minced) 3 sprigs thyme (leaves removed) Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste cup white wine pound goat cheese (crumbled) 2 tsp. flat leaf parsley 4 tbsp. bread crumbs 3 sheets phyllo dough cup butter (melted) Method In a pan over medium heat, heat the oil and add the mushrooms, onions, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper. Cook until the mushrooms begin to brown, then add the wine and cook until completely evaporated. Remove from heat. Stir in the goat cheese, parsley and bread crumbs, then set aside to cool. Place 1 sheet of phyllo dough on top of a piece of parchment paper. Brush the phyllo with butter and place another phyllo sheet on top. Brush that sheet with butter and top with the last sheet. Spoon the mushroom filling down the center of the phyllo. Roll the phyllo over and fold the sides under. Brush with the remaining butter and bake at 350F for 35 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool slightly before slicing. Serve with salad. Resident Chef Jarred Harris heads the Culinary Education Center at The Community House on Sanibel.

Skewer each lobster bite onto the bamboo skewers and lightly season with salt and pepper. In a blender or food processor, add avocado, lime juice and season lightly with salt and pepper. Puree the avocado mixture until smooth, adding 1 tablespoon of water at a time until the desired thickness of avocado puree is reached. The avocado puree should be smooth and creamy and should be thin enough to pour into a small bowl or shot glasses. Add 1 tablespoon of the cooking oil to the hot pan. Carefully add the skewered lobster bites to the hot pan being careful not to over crowd the pan. Cook lobster bites for just 30 seconds on each side. The lobster bites will cook quickly so it is important to keep a close eye on them. Once the lobster bites are cooked, remove them from pan, and let drain on a paper towel. Repeat the cooking process until all the lobster bites are cooked. This cooking process can be done ahead of time and the lobster can be served cold if desired. To serve, arrange the lobster bites on a plate with a bowl of avocado puree, or add a small amount of avocado puree into the bottom of several shot glasses and top each glass with the cooked lobster bites. Garnish the lobster bites with the fine diced red pepper. Yields four to six servings. Lobster Bites with Avocado-Lime Puree p hoto courtesy Fresh From Florida

23 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 7, 2018 After School Programs Offered By Sea Schoolby Jeff LysiakNow that school is back in session, local students who may be looking for some fun activities to engage in before they set about the task of doing their homework need look no farther than Sanibel Sea School, which is offering a variety of recreational and educational classes as part of its weekly after school programs. Every Tuesday during the month of September, the school will offer After School Surfing for students age 6 to 13. During each session, staff will instruct students on proper paddling techniques, how to turn the surfboard, how to pop up (moving from the paddling to standing position) and how to catch a wave. Well go over everything from the anatomy of a surfboard to the basics of surfing, said Shannon Stainken, marine science educator. We like bringing kids outside to let them play in the water. Well also challenge them to show off the skills theyve learned or test their knowledge of surfing. Upcoming After School Surfing sessions will be held from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. on September 11, 18 and 25. Cost is $20 per session. Given the concerns of the recent red tide and blue-green algae outbreaks, the school has planned safe alternatives to getting into local waters for campers and staff. Obviously, safety is the number one concern for our clients and our staff, said Stainken. We monitor water conditions every day. And we understand that if its not safe, were not going into the water. Thats why weve planned some alternative activities. Among the alternative options for after school sessions will be some science-based educational classes (i.e. botany, biology, physics and chemistry) with hands-on learning that will be both educational and fun, along with some recreational activities that will bring kids outdoors. These include How to Snorkel (dates and pool locations to be determined), Properties of Water, Polymer Chemistry (i.e. how to make slime/gak) and Coconuts 101. Classes will be held at the schools flagship campus, located at 455 Periwinkle Way. Well dissect a coconut, well eat them and well paint them, Stainken said. Well even let kids send a coconut through the mail to a loved one or friend up north. During the month of October, youngsters will have the opportunity to learn how to fish using a cast net. After School Cast Netting classes will teach the basics of the time-honored tradition of cast netting. Cast netting is something that definitely takes some practice, explained Stainken, who noted that students will also learn how to sight fish for forage fish. Sometimes it can be frustrating for kids, but thats what makes it a challenge. The hardest part of throwing a cast net is getting it to open up all the way. After School Cast Netting sessions will be held on Tuesdays from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. on October 2, 9, 16 and 23. Cost is $20 per session or $75 for the four-week class. From the last week in November through the week before Christmas, Sanibel Sea School will again be offering After School Ocean Art sessions. Using some natural materials including sea shells, branches and twigs, coconuts and other materials gathered outdoors and lots of creative energy, participants will make their own holiday-themed craft, suitable for gift-giving or to keep. Well be making shell ornaments and wreaths again, because theyre the most popular crafts each year, added Stainken, who noted that all art supplies and craft materials are provided. After School Ocean Art sessions will be held on Tuesdays from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. on November 27 and December 4, 11 and 18. Cost is $20 per session or $75 for the four-week class. To register for any of the upcoming programs or for more information, call 472-8585 or visit www.sanibelseaschool. org.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 7, 201824 SUN Book ReviewThe Other Womanby Di SaggauIve read that Daniel Silva publishes one book a year. I race to read it when it comes out because he is one of my favorite authors. He delivers again in The Other Woman his 18th novel featuring Israeli art restorer and spy Gabriel Allon. Israels intelligence division is running an operation to save Konstyantin Kirov, a blown Russian agent and one of Israelis most valuable resources. They want to bring him to sanctuary in the U.K. Gabriel and his team are drawn into a carefully planned mission when the operation goes bad. Both MI6 and the CIA are involved, to unearth one of the Kremlins highest-placed moles, code named Heathcliff. Silva depicts a world in which communist true believers are dying out, while far-right populists around the world look to the New Russia as a triumph of hard-line nationalism. Meanwhile, in Andalusia, a French journalist starts writing a memoir called The Other Woman which contains the key to the mystery that Gabriel must solve. Kim Philby, British intelligence agent who defected to the Soviet Union in 1963 and died in Moscow in 1988, turns out to be at the bottom of the mystery. Silvas depiction of him is fascinating. Readers will be enthralled by both the history and the up-to-theminute plot that he spins. Midway in the book we learn about files of the Middle East from 1956 to 1963. Silva describes it as a time when Britain was fading, America was rising, the Russians were encroaching, the youthful State of Israel was flexing its newfound muscle, and the Arabs were flirting with all the failed isms, Pan-Arabism, Arab Nationalism, and Arab Socialism that would eventually lead to the rise of Islamism and jihadism and the mess of the present. Its spy versus spy in The Other Woman a heart-pounding thriller, which some call his most enthralling novel to date. Twists and turns and nonstop action fill every page and Silva, one of the finest writers working today, creates the kind of conundrum where readers are dying to know what happens but dont want the story to end. School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, School has been in session for only a few weeks, and my kids are already disorganized. We need to fix this as soon as possible. Suggestions, please!! Lexi Z, Cape Coral Lexi, With our busy lives, it is difficult to stay organized but there are strategies that both you and your kids can use to keep track of things from classwork to sports gear. One easy way to keep track of things is through the use of colorcoding. Here are some suggestions. Color-code the family calendar Consider investing in a giant wall calendar. You can use a different color for each family member as you write in events. For example, one childs lessons and appointments could be marked in green and another childs in purple. Your own meetings and classes might be red, and so forth. This can make it easier for your child to focus on what their own commitments are and to learn to keep their schedules straight. If your family uses a joint digital calendar (like Cozi or Google Calendar), you can also assign colors to events. Check under settings. Use different-colored supplies for each school subject. When each class has its own color, it can make it easier for your children to see if they have everything they need in their backpack. Use red, for example, for reading folders, textbook cover and notebook. Blue could be for math, and so on. Older kids can also use color-coding on digital folders on their computers. Encourage your children to take notes in home and school colors. Some kids find it helpful to distinguish what they learned in class from the teacher from what they learned studying at home. Whether your children take notes by hand or on the computer, suggest that they use different colors. For example, they could use a black pen or font for class notes and blue for notes she takes at home. That way if they have a question about something in their notes, they know where they learned it. Create a highlighter or color-coded underlining system for note-taking. When each color has a specific purpose, your children can scan a page and know where to look for what they need. For example, they can mark all new terms or vocabulary words in yellow, the main topic in green and each subtopic in pink. This works whether theyre studying textbooks, handwritten notes or printed-out notes. This approach tends to work best for shorter assignments. It could be visually overwhelming to do this throughout big chunks of text. Most word-processing software has highlighter functions, so they can use this technique on the computer, too. Use different-colored bags for different kinds of gear. Try organizing your kids activities by color. Use large washable sacks in different colors. For example, you can keep all soccer supplies in a yellow bag, the ballet gear in a red one, and so on. To make the contents even more recognizable, you can customize each bag with the name of its sport or activity. This makes it even easier for your child to know shes grabbing the right one on her way to practice. All this color coding will take some time to set up, but the results will be worth it.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 7, 201828 September Programs At Captiva LibraryDuring the month of September, the Captiva Memorial Library is offering a number of programs and activities, including: Adults Island Hopper Festival Friday, September 21 from 2 to 3:30 p.m. featuring musicians Bill Metts, Bruce Gallant and David Hintz. Metts was influenced by the music of Taj Mahall, Mississippi John Hurt, Doc Watson and others. Metts original songs are down home finger-picking style. Gallant has been writing songs for over 30 years. His songs are a reflection of different times in his life and he considers his songs his journal. Hintz writes from his heart; his songs and performance are sure to be a direct line to yours. For more details, visit www. americanacma.org or www.americanacma. org/event/acma-island-hopper-festivalshow-captiva-library. Coloring For Grown-Ups (All library hours) Coloring books are no longer just for kids. In fact, adult coloring books are all the rage right now. Researchers and art therapists alike have touted the calming benefits for over a decade, with researchers at Johns Hopkins University to the editors of Yoga Journal suggesting coloring as an alternative to meditation. Like meditation, coloring allows the brain to switch off other thoughts and focus. Coloring has therapeutic potential to reduce anxiety, create focus or bring about more mindfulness. Participants can bring their own materials or use those provided. Checkers (All library hours) Play classic checkers or try other versions such as Fox and Geese, Give Away, Shifting Pyramids, Corner Checkers or Goban. Instructions included. Or reverse the field and play Tic Tac Toe or Super Tic Tac Toe. Youth A Healthy Breakfast: A great way to start the day. (All library hours) September 1 to 8. Drop in to see a picture book display on breakfast and make a paper pancake craft. Honeybees and Honey (All library hours) September 11 to 18. September is National Honey Month.

Meet a real-life pirate. Pirates of the High Seas (All library hours) September 20 to 29. Check out books from the pirate book display. Make a paper plate pirate.

AIRPORT & LOCAL SERVICEwww.IslandTaxi.com ride@islandtaxi.com 239-472-4888 More Than a Ride! Call Madeline for Reservations On August 18, members of the Sanibel & Captiva Islands Association of Realtors (SCIAR), along with other District 5 members from Bonita Springs and Naples, came together for a friendly cornhole competition to benefit the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) and its ongoing efforts to improve the water quality of the local waterways and beaches. The tournament raised $1,000 for the cause. With that donation, SCIAR thanks to its members and the island community has contributed over $15,000 this year to SCCF to aid water quality research and awareness. The tournament was held at Marlins Brewhouse, where 16 teams played while onlookers enjoyed local beer, food and conversation. The winning team, Tracy Walters, Jr. and Nichole Tyler, took home gift cards as prizes and bragging rights for the next year. The Sanibel & Captiva Islands Association of Realtors would like to thank everyone who came out and participated, as well as the tournament sponsors: Insurance & Risk Management Services, Lake Michigan Credit Union, Rosier Insurance, Private Client Insurance, Superior Title Services and Zampogna Law.

31 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 7, 2018Ribbon Cutting For New EateryThe Sanibel & Captiva Islands Chamber of Commerce celebrated the opening of Paper Fig Kitchen with a ribbon cutting ceremony on August 23 at the eatery located in Tahitian Gardens shopping center. We are pleased to welcome Chef Jeramie and Debra (Campana) to the island business community, said Chamber President John Lai. The couple believes in dishes that are creatively crafted, fresh and delicious every item made from scratch. Seasonal fare, daily specials and sweet treats fill the menu. Chef Jeramies career in the kitchen began in the United States Coast Guard and took him to opening Wild Asparagus outside of Chicago. He and Debra eventually realized their goal to sell the boutique custom catering and events company to begin their decade-long dream of a foodie venture on Sanibel. In May 2017, they secured the shop space and are embracing the philosophy of inspired fare, glorious presentation and oldfashioned hospitality. I am excited to bring my flavors and style to the island and share my love for the culinary arts, said Jeramie, who enjoys any projects in the garage when he is not cooking. Debra, who tries not to be in the kitchen, began her career as a meeting and event planner. She often coordinated, tented, styled, staffed and plated several events for up to 1,500 guests in a single weekend. Meeting Jeramie took my life in a whirlwind planning direction, which included private parties, weddings and fundraisers, said Debra. I fully enjoyed meeting with every single client personally. They bring their combined 35 years of culinary, food styling and planning experience, along with their determination to redefine and inspire take-along cuisine, to create Paper Fig Kitchen. It is their dream come true. Paper Fig Kitchen is open Tuesday through Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.; closed Sunday and Monday. Catering is available seven days a week.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 7, 201832 Superior InteriorsPrinted Paradisesby Barb CacchionePrints can undoubtedly be a challenging field to navigate through, but when done correctly the results are beyond satisfying. Watching a room come together as the complementary styles and patterns merge to create a cohesive space is something special. A dull room begging for a new look is something everyone can relate to. We all need to change it up every once and a while why should our homes be any different? Oftentimes, patterns and prints are the perfect solution. Mixing patterns adds ample interesting dynamics of character that can make or break a room. When choosing prints to make your paradise complete, one must consider scale, space, proportion and color. Some go-to print-partnerships include solids and soft patterns, which create a calm and inviting space, but when going about selections on your own, it is important to stick to the staple process. Because using patterns that have the potential to clash with each other is a dicey scene, one point should be the leader. This print will guide the others in terms of color coordination and scale. The first pattern should be the boldest. From there, select a pattern that is considerably smaller or larger than the primary piece. Now would also be the time to switch it up, so if a floral was already chosen, opt for a geometric print with a similar color scheme this time around. The next patterns should pull from the colors and styles of the ones that have already been selected, like a smaller floral or geometric print with a complementary pattern. From pinstripes and chevron to solid colors and textures, the perfect combination of prints transforms a dull room into a dream room.

Mark OBrien Owner/Agent Trish Barbone Agent Justin Wheeler Agent We are HERE for all your insurance needs 2 Years Experience Rotary Happeningssubmitted by Shirley JewellSanibel-Captiva Rotary Club President John Danner has used our Rotary International President Barry Rassins motto, Be the Inspiration, to open our Friday morning meetings each week by featuring his own inspirational provocateurs. This week it was Senator John McCains final letter to America. Here is an excerpt from that letter: We are 325 million opinionated, vociferous individuals. We argue and compete and sometimes even vilify each other in our raucous public debates. But we have always had so much more in common with each other than in disagreement. If only we remember that and give each other the benefit of the presumption that we all love our country, we will get through these challenging times. We will come through them stronger than before, we always do. Many things can inspire a person or organization to accept a challenge; challenges that sometime seem out of reach. Rotary took on the challenge to rid the world of polio and has reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent worldwide. Rotary also has an interest in providing significant funding for Alzheimers disease research, making it a focus for many clubs here in North America. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club participated in fundraising for the Alzheimers Research Trust a few years ago by partaking in their CART (Coins for Alzheimers Research Trust) fundraising effort and did so successfully. The club is now reinstating our CART fundraising effort led by Rotarian Eldon Bohrofen. At this time, CART will be an internal fundraising effort for Rotarians and friends. Donations will be collected each week for Alzheimers research during our Happy Bucks meeting segment. Bohrofen got the donations rolling with a gift of $1,000 and a match challenge for an additional $1,000. Club members responded to the challenge and the club is off to a great start. It wont be very long before we meet his $1,000 challenge. Challenges come in many forms, just ask our guest speaker from last Friday, Tamara Pigott, executive director of Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau (VCB). The VCB serves the broader interests of the economy of Lee County by acting as a marketing, sales and services organization. Its mission is multifaceted; promote our destination globally, support tourism industry development, assist with preserving and protecting the areas unique attributes, and activate the community in support of tourism. By showcasing what makes the area special from other sun and sand destinations, VCB sales, marketing, media relations and visitor services work together to deliver messages to the traveling public to inspire them to choose Lee County as their destination for vacations, meetings and group events. Pigott brought to our attention right away that the VCB works four months in advance of each season for marketing our destination. The current red tide and green algae problems will change their approach to marketing slightly for the upcoming season and marketing will focus on what is great about Lee County. The beautiful drone shots of the beaches will be saved for future marketing campaigns and replaced with short action focused videos and print ads. Attention will be drawn to things like outdoor adventures along the extensive bike paths of Sanibel, birding and Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, visits to Matlacha, Captiva and Fort Myers Beach, the Edison Ford Winter Estates and downtown river district nightlife, golf and tennis facilities, and spring season baseball and sporting events. The value of tourism in Lee County is immense. Numbers for 2017: visitors to Lee County were 4,797,394; visitor Expenditures $3.1 billion; tourist tax revenue $39.8 million; jobs 58,632. Hurricane Irma weakened the numbers, but those numbers bounced back. Currently, we are feeling the effects of our water quality crisis and this season the statistics will show a major dip in tourism dollars in the area, reflecting lost tourism dollars for our beach communities. Careful study and planning go into the marketing strategy to promote Lee County throughout the states and overseas. Statistics now indicate that the strongest tourism market for Lee County is the Midwest for winter season and the Northeast in the spring. Outside the states, Canadians are number one in winter and Germany in spring. On average, winter 2018 visitors stayed in Lee County for about nine days. The majority indicated they came to Lee County for a vacation (85 percent) and two in five were visiting with friends or relatives (38 percent). Four-fifths of visitors were repeaters (82 percent), an increase over last winter (73 percent). These repeat visitors averaged five trips to Lee County in the past five years. Good Luck, Tammy. This year will be a challenge for the Lee County VCB; lets hope Mother Nature will give us another chance and the powers that be clean up their act. Businesses and residents of Lee County depend on you. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets Friday mornings at 7 a.m. at The Dunes Golf & Tennis Club. Guests are welcome.

33 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 7, 2018FISH of SanCap, along with Fifth Third Bank, is offering a community presentation, entitled Taking Charge of Your Financial Health, on Thursday, September 13 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Sanibel Community Church. This workshop will help individuals and families learn how to do basic budgeting, slash their debt and boost their credit score. FISH Facilitator, Program Director Kathy Y. Monroe, said, This session will help individuals develop a plan for budgeting and saving which can lead to boosting their credit score while helping to eliminate debt. Financial health is just as important as physical health, because lacking the first can have an impact on the latter. The presenter, Ruben Perales, financial relationship manager from Fifth Third Bank, will introduce this information in a very interesting and interactive manner. Persons will leave this session knowing how to create a budget, interpret a credit score and manage debt. The seminar is open to the community and snacks will be provided. To RSVP, contact Kathy Y. Monroe at 472-4775. For more information, visit www. fishofsancap.org. Kathy Y. Monroe Ruben Perales photos provided New Ways To Secure Seats For Zonta Home Toursubmitted by Sue DenhamSaturday, March 16 is the 18th annual A Peek at the Unique, the record-setting home tour and signature fundraiser for the Zonta Club of Sanibel-Captiva and the Zonta Foundation of Southwest Florida. It is a sought-after day out for islanders, seasonal residents and visitors. As planning gets under way, Zonta is introducing two new ways to purchase tickets and a great way to gather your neighbors or church group, tennis or golf buddies, writers group or book club to enjoy A Peek at the Unique together. The first is Buy a Bus, which is exactly what it sounds like. How it works: Any time during the month of November, groups can get together and purchase all the seats on a Peek bus, prior to the time tickets go on sale online: 1. Gather a group of 24, 27 or 39 Peekers (bus sizes vary). 2. Have one individual pay for the bus in full ($100 per person) by November 30, with no service fees or extra charges of any kind. The Peekers then reimburse that individual. 3. As a bonus, each Peeker on the bus receives one free Chance at the Unique raffle ticket (value $10). 4. Buses will be assigned on a first come, first served basis; specific departure times cannot be guaranteed. The second opportunity is Buy a Block: 1. During the second half of November (November 15 to 30), anyone can reserve six seats or more on a bus prior to the time the tickets go on sale online. 2. As above, gather your group of six or more, have one individual pay for all the seats (no service fees) by November 30. Each block of seats will be assigned on an available bus on a first come, first served basis; specific departure times cannot be guaranteed. Visit www.zontasancap.com for complete details. While these ticket purchase options do not begin until November, it is not too early to start getting your group together now, said Peek chair Susan Tucker. If you have questions, send an email to peektickets@gmail.com. For more information about Zonta, its programs and the event, go to www.zontasancap. com. As always, all proceeds from the Peek are awarded in grants to organizations that help to empower women and girls, including Zonta International.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 7, 201834 Having just sent my youngest off to Elon University in North Carolina, Ive been reflecting on their time at home. In particular, when my wife and I have a cross word with one of our daughters, it wasnt uncommon for them to secretly get on their cell phones to dial Grandma from the privacy of their bedroom to complain. They get to vent about what rotten parents Patti and I have become and how we are being so unfair or otherwise overly demanding of them. Imagine asking your daughter to pick up that wet towel off of the floor of her room for the hundredth time. How unreasonable! But having caring and loving grandparents is good. It balances out the family dynamic. Grandparents tend to provide a broader, calmer perspective. Theyre not in the heat of the battle, and theyve been through those battles before. So its interesting for me as an estate planning attorney to see how, in their estate plans, grandparents treat their grandchildren. A predominant school of thought is to leave everything to the children and let them take care of the grandchildren. Sometimes, however, the grandparents want to include the grandchildren directly in the estate plans. And heres where it gets interesting. Suppose that son Liam has two children and the other son Noah has three. So if Grandpa leaves each grandchild $10,000, then Liams side of the family receives an extra $20,000 of bequests, while Noahs side of the family receives $30,000. So is that unfair? Its all how you look at it. If you are trying to treat Liam and Noah equally, you could argue that Noah is getting more. But is he really? My experience with these issues is that grandparents tend to change their perspective on treating grandchildren equally over time. Allow me to explain. While the grandchildren are young (from birth through high school or college age), the grandparents tend to think of the grandchildren as extensions of their children. In other words, Noahs children should only get $6,667 each while Liams children each get $10,000 so that both sides (Liam and Noah) are treated equally a total of $20,000 to each side of the grandchildren. As the grandchildren exit college, however, the grandparents tend to think of them as their own individual unit with no difference as to whether they are offspring of one son or the other. In other words, as the grandchildren enter young adulthood, anecdotally, I would tell you that in my experience the $10,000 bequest to each grandchild doesnt seem to bother Grandma and Grandpa as much. They think of their grandchildren more as independent young adults and less as extensions of one side of the family or the other. It gets trickier when there are stepchildren involved. Blended families are much more common today than they were a generation or so ago. And in many cases, the step-grandparents have a close relationship with their step-grandchildren. Here, the grandparents have to make a decision whether the step-grandchildren should receive anything at all, or if they do, whether they receive the same amount as the biological grandchildren. Complicating matters further is that many dont understand how the law works. When you leave amounts to a child per stirpes, and if that child predeceases you, then unless you have a specific provision to the contrary, that deceased childs stepchildren do not receive amounts from your estate. If, on the other hand, your child has legally adopted the step-grandchildren, then they are no longer steprelations. Adopted grandchildren are treated under the law the same as biological grandchildren. You can decide to treat step-grandchildren (who have not been adopted) the same as biological grandchildren by so stating in your will or trust. But you actually have to make an express statement in your estate planning documents to have them treated that way. Often, grandparents dont know what they should do about step-grandchildren. Should they be treated the same as biological grandchildren? Should they be treated half as well? Should they not be mentioned at all? Will their child be offended if their stepchildren are not provided for the same way as the biological grandchildren are treated? There are no right or wrong answers. Each family is different. The relationship between the grandparents, the parents and the grandchildren will usually dictate how this all plays out. I usually encourage my clients to talk to their children to get their feelings on these matters. But ultimately, it is the decision of the client what they want to put into their will or trust. The best way to approach these issues is to look into their own hearts to decide whats best for them and their families. Because how you decide to treat your family blended family and all in your estate plan is how you feel about those who are close to you. Whether you have a large estate or a more modest estate, it really doesnt matter. What matters most are the relationships that you enjoy through the years. Because I know that when my kids feel upset with Patti and me our parents feel warm and special that our kids want comfort from them. And all of that means more than anything a will or trust can say. 2018 Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at www.sbshlaw.com. Will PowerSpoiling The Grandchildrenby Craig R.

As a part of the states partnership, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and the St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD) will provide funding, the host site location and technical expertise to support the George Barley Water Prize. The partnership is for the final stage of the prizes multiyear innovation competition, where the final four teams will travel to Lake Jesup from across the globe to see whose technologies can tackle phosphorus in the most cost-effective and scalable way. The Everglades Foundation is thrilled to have the State of Florida support the George Barley Water Prize to help solve global phosphorus pollution, said Eric Eikenberg, CEO of The Everglades Foundation. We are excited that, with the support of Governor Scott, the Department of Environmental Protection and the St. Johns River Water Management District, the solution will likely be discovered right here in Florida at Lake Jesup. The George Barley Water Prize is the first water prize of its kind a $10 million competition that has drawn innovators from all over the world to pursue their unique solutions to make the problems Florida is experiencing today in the Everglades and Lake Okeechobee a thing of the past. The George Barley Water Prize is our best hope for Lake Jesup, the Great Lakes, our coastal estuaries, the Everglades and waterways across the globe that are suffering from excess phosphorous, said Eikenberg, Thank you to Governor Scott and Secretary Valenstein for their $1 million commitment to solving the worldwide phosphorus pollution through competition and innovation. The Everglades Foundation and its board of directors conceived the $10 million George Barley Water Prize seven years ago in order to incentivize the private sector to develop more cost-effective technologies to remove phosphorus pollution from waterbodies. The board realized that the situation affecting the Everglades and Lake Okeechobee is something communities all over the globe were experiencing, and the best way to drive the cost down was to incentivize innovation. The Everglades Foundation just finished the pilot stage of testing in Ontario, Canada.

You might see wine manager next to my name, but our store really doesnt have job titles, said Johnson, speaking in front of more than 40 club members and invited guests. We all do what needs to be done but I also order the wine. Engaging the group in an interactive discussion, Johnson asked people to share one of the positive customer service experiences theyve had at Baileys. Robin Cook, executive vice president and wealth services advisor for The Sanibel Captiva Trust Company, talked about hiring Sanibel Catering Company by Baileys for a family event. I cannot say enough about how much above and beyond they went, said Cook. They made us feel like we were their only customer. According to Johnson, customer service is the top priority of her familys business, followed closely by their mission to offer top quality products at reasonable prices. But when confronted by a customer who might have been displeased or wants to return an inferior product, she pointed out that maintaining a calm demeanor and listening intently to the problem often makes conflict resolution attainable. Its better to treat somebody with respect, because youre not just somebody thats standing between that person and a refund, said Johnson. We want to encourage people to give us an opportunity to do better. Were always working on being better. Johnson, who attended the meeting with other members of the family who help run the business including parents Richard and Mead and siblings Bailie and Dane also talked about interacting with multiple generations of employees and customers on a daily basis. We all have something to learn, no matter what generation were from, she said, a fact confirmed by testimonials from ABWA members around the room. We are a 119-year-old business that embraces technology, said Richard Johnson. Slowly but surely, quipped daughter Bailie, which drew a round of laughter. Later, Calli talked about the work involved in ordering wine. A lot of work goes into the logistics of getting your product from point A to point B, she said, noting the increased popularity of wine has led to the establishment of the Island Wine Society. In addition, Baileys General Store holds several wine tasting events throughout the year. We work really hard to provide good wine at reasonable prices. Gloria Garrett, president of the ABWA Sanibel-Captiva Charter Chapter, oversaw the meeting and thanked Johnson and her entire family for attending. She also acknowledged several representatives from the City of Sanibel including City Manager Judie Zimomra, City Clerk Pamela Smith, Deputy City Clerk Scotty Lynn Kelly, Recreation Department Director Andrea Miller and Sanibel Police Department Officer Grace Towler thanking the staff for their exceptional crisis management performance over the past year in the wake of Hurricane Irma. Kira Dworkin of KM Gems provided a display featuring her line of jewelry at the vendor table while Lisa NewmeyerCochrane won $210 in the 50/50 drawing; she donated her prize back to ABWA.

The Country Lost An American Hero And Arizona Lost Its No. 1 Sports Fanby Ed FrankSometimes lost in the millions of words that have been written and spoken in reverence to Senator John McCain was his love for sports particularly Arizona sports. Yes, we lost a true American hero with his passing, but the sports world also lost one of its greatest fans. McCain was a huge Arizona Diamondbacks baseball fan from the very first day in 1998 when the team began play. The sight of him sitting in the stands became so commonplace that few fans seemed to even notice. He would shake hands with fans, pose for pictures, but mostly he was there just to be a loyal fan. John McCain has always been a member of the D-backs family and one of our biggest fans from day one, said team President and CEO Derrick Hall. He was in attendance at the expansion draft, the World Series and countless other games, remaining a fan through thick and thin. When the announcement of his passing on August 25 was shown on the video board during the Diamondbacks-Mariners game, the crowd rose to give a standing ovation. He also loved his Arizona Cardinals football team and became a close friend of Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald, who spoke so eloquently at the Senators funeral service. Rest in peace to an American hero, statesman, servant of the people and dear friend, the football star said. His love for sports wasnt limited to the Diamondbacks and Cardinals. When the former owner of the Arizona Coyotes hockey team was threatened with bankruptcy, the senator worked to keep the team in the Valley of the Sun. And when the Arizona Suns basketball team celebrated its 50th anniversary, McCain and his wife, Cindy, donned orange shirts to celebrate with the rest of the fans. The states No. 1 sports fan extended that love for sports to his support to Arizona State and the University of Arizona athletics as well. Now heres an item that few of us knew or remembered. McCain was an undersized boxer at the Naval Academy in the 1950s and understood how pugilists are often exploited financially. He helped create and pass in Congress the Muhammad Ali Boxing Reform Act to protect boxers from unscrupulous individuals and to provide medical protection. The law was enacted in 2000. His humor and sharp questioning during Congressional hearings were legendary. In June 2017, just before he announced that he had been diagnosed with brain cancer, McCains questioning of former FBI director James Comey during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing appeared inconsistent and confusing at times. Maybe I shouldnt stay up late watching the Diamondbacks night games, he said afterwards. Senator McCain will be missed worldwide, but none more than his sports faithful in his home state of Arizona. Miracle Win Second-Half Divisional Title On the last day of the regular season last Sunday, the Fort Myers Miracle baseball team won the Florida State Leagues South Division title for the seasons second-half by defeating the Clearwater Threshers in a thrilling 2-1 victory. It marked the second straight year that the Miracle won the second-half title. Fort Myers and Charlotte finished the second-half with identical 40-29 records, but the Miracle owned the tiebreaker due to the head-to-head record in the second-half. Charlotte lost to the Florida Fire Frogs on the last day of the season. The Miracle opened the post-season divisional series against the Palm Beach Cardinals Tuesday night at Hammond Stadium, winners of the divisions first half. The best-of-three series then moves to Palm Beach for Game Two and Game Three if necessary. The Miracle went 4-11 against Palm Beach during the regular season.

The workshop was facilitated by Rachel Tritaik, PT, LMT, CLT of Island Therapy Center. A capacity crowd attended the workshop and luncheon, with sandwiches, bagged chips and bottled water provided by FISH. Tritaiks PowerPoint presentation included information on the three causes for falls (individual, environmental and situational), what can be done to prevent falls, methods for standing up following a fall and exercises for improving overall balance. Were supposed to wobble, but our bodies are supposed to have a balance reaction, Tritaik told the audience of approximately 50 islanders. We see a lot of cases at the clinic where people had an accident which caused them to fall. But in many of those cases, those falls were preventable. After showing a short video called Why Worry About Falling provided by the National Council on Aging, Tritaik noted that every 11 seconds, a person visits an emergency room due to an injury related to a fall. She then pointed out that among the individual causes for falls were being sedentary, having a recent illness or injury, fatigue, low blood sugar or low blood pressure, alcohol abuse, reduced reaction time, poor use of an assistive device and systemic problems (caused by medical issues or medications). Environmental causes of falls include home and community hazards such as electrical cords and wires, uneven floor surfaces or insufficient lighting. She suggested making sure floors and staircases are kept clear of clutter, removing potential obstructions from pathways (especially between your bed and bathroom) and installing safety devices such as grab bars, non-skid mats and raised toilet seats. Situational causes of falls include external distractions (phones, barking dogs or traffic), negotiating tables, chairs and aisles, moving or carrying items, rushing and weather (wind, rain, ice and sun glare). Tritaik then shared a video of her demonstrating a number of techniques people can use to get up and off the floor, while she also stressed that it was very important to get off the floor following a fall as quickly as possible. One of the methods she demonstrated was called the book technique, in which the person who has fallen uses objects nearby in this case, books and, one-by-one, props themselves higher and higher on a stack of books until they reach a height where they can stand or sit themselves on a chair, sofa or bed. I was talking with my son about putting together a list of fall prevention tips to share at this workshop, Tritaik told the audience. He looked at me and said, You mean hacks. The entire crowd chuckled. Later, Tritaik demonstrated several simple exercises including sit-to-stand using only your legs, chair push-ups, standing tall for posture, standing on one leg, blind spot reach and a back and hip stretch that will improve ones balance. She noted that people wanting a personal evaluation or additional information on improving mobility may contact Island Therapy Center at 395-5858 or visit www. IslandTherapyCenter.com. Kathy Y. Monroe, representing FISH, also shared with the audience that her organization can arrange for telephone reassurance calls for island residents who may have limited mobility and/or are susceptible to falls. She explained that a volunteer may visit that persons home or FISH may request the Sanibel Police Department to conduct a wellness check. FISH also provides loans of medical equipment including canes, walkers and wheelchairs as well as non-emergency transportation to medical appointments.

In light of recent events, we feel it is important to take this proactive step to make sure our students, staff and guests feel safe at athletic, arts and other events, said Superintendent Dr. Greg Adkins. All guests attending an event will be subject to a search. Prohibited items inside stadiums, gymnasiums and theaters include, but are not limited to: book bags, backpacks, duffel bags or large purses; any type of weapon; any item that could be used as a missile; cans/bottles; coolers; fireworks; horns/ lasers. These changes implement a policy similar to what the NCAA, professional sports teams, large arenas and theaters require of their guests. Principals have been notified so they can immediately implement the policy, and messages are being sent to parents. At this time, the new policy applies to high schools. After a meeting with law enforcement, it will be determined if the policy will also apply to middle and elementary schools.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 7, 201838 Doctor and DieticianProlonged Sittingby Ross Hauser, MD and Marion Hauser, MS, RDSitting is a difficult position to avoid. We sit while driving, in front of our desk at work, while traveling on planes and buses, and at home in front of the TV. But sitting for long, uninterrupted stretches can cause early death. Excess sitting has been linked to health conditions such as obesity, high blood pressure, heart disease, varicose veins, weakened bones, diabetes, cancer, dementia and depression. Our bodies are designed to move and be active. Being sedentary immobilizes muscles and slows down circulation. Inactivity is a problem in itself. But the health conditions from prolonged sitting are also due to the actual act of prolonged sitting, which appears to change the way insulin and hormones work. When we stand, the muscular and cellular systems are activated by carrying our own bodyweight. Will working out counteract the effects? Nope. Even if you work out seven hours a week, the cumulative ill effects of prolonged sitting for seven hours at a time cant be reversed. Those glued to a seat still die earlier than those who arent, even if they exercise. Thats not an excuse to skip the gym though. Prolonged sitting is like smoking. Its always bad for you. Move throughout the day to lower your risk of health problems and an early death due to prolonged sitting. During long drives, make regular stops to walk around and stretch. If you frequently game or work at a computer, use a standing desk unit. If you binge watch TV, move around between episodes, or try watching an entire one while using an indoor bike or standing. Take a brief walk in the sunshine during your work breaks. Reduce sitting, little by little, each week. As you get used to sitting less, moving becomes more natural and promotes a healthier you.

Strengthening Work Force SkillsIn an increasingly competitive world, America needs as many of its people workforce-ready. With assistance from the FISH of SanCap Continuing Education Program, adults who may have missed out on higher education opportunities are given a second chance to follow their dreams. Those who enroll in adult education programs are often working multiple jobs and juggling many responsibilities and commitments. They make the time to attend classes because they understand that education is what they need to better their life and the lives of their families. The FISH Continuing Education Program assists those who qualify with tuition, materials and/or fees for continuing education. The intention of the program is for participants to continue their education and increase their marketability in the job market by developing new skills or knowledge necessary for career development or transition, which can lead to household sustainability and self-sufficiency. Adult education can be a path from low-income jobs and unpromotable futures to family sustainability, said Maggi Feiner, FISH president and CEO. It builds stronger communities and can put adults on sustainable paths while opening up opportunities for financial security. I meet with many individuals that are under-employed because they lack a certain degree and/or skill in their field of work. They come to me stuck in a job that will never advance them to where they want to be. As their case manager, I am happy to be able to offer assistance through this program, stated Nitza Lopez, FISH social worker. We have had many applicants graduate from various programs and move into a job they are passionate about and love doing. Its great to see our neighbors spread their wings and fly. Funding for this program is made available through private donors. Scholarship assistance is evaluated on a case by case basis. The FISH Social Services Department determines eligibility for need-based financial assistance through a review of income and expense documentation. Scholarship amounts vary depending upon financial status and type of program. Available funding is limited, and scholarships will cover only a portion of the program cost. For more details about the program, contact Nitza Lopez at 472-4775. For additional information, visit www. fishofsancap.org. Hope Hospice Expands ServicesFor nearly 40 years, Hope Hospice staff and volunteers have served as doulas to support people throughout their end-of-life journey. Now, as this role becomes more recognized, Hopes doula program has significantly expanded in size and scope to offer even more support to families during the final days and hours of life. More than 30 Hope volunteers have completed a specialized hospice doula educational program, where they learned about creating and maintaining a sacred space by using sound, touch, color and other sensory experiences to alleviate pain and anxiety. Doulas can also offer legacy projects that serve as emotional touchstones and family keepsakes. Much in the same way a doula helps a new mother navigate childbirth, end-of-life doulas help enhance Hopes holistic, personalized approach by facilitating a gentle, tranquil and meaningful passing whether in a hospice house, the hospital or home, said Hope Healthcare President and CEO Samira K. Beckwith. Hope Hospice honors each persons beliefs about life, death or the afterlife. Doulas are non-denominational and work with all faith traditions, as well as with those who are not religious. The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization recognizes the value of end-of-life doulas, who enrich the experience for patients, family members and friends, and strengthen the relationship between medical and nonmedical end-oflife support.

SUN deaRPharmacistCayenne Pepper Stopped My Bleedingby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Readers:You read all kinds of things on Dr. Google, eh? For sure I do while Im researching what Im going to write for you each week. I read some interesting articles last year that I made a mental note of. One was about cayenne pepper and how it could stop bleeding. I stored this fascinating detail in the back of my mind should I ever cut myself again in the kitchen which tends to happen more frequently than I care to admit. It came to pass one night when I was in a hurry again. I cut myself on an onion. The month before it was from cutting bread with a serrated knife that slipped. As a writer, youd think Id wear gloves or slow down. I did my usual things: Held my arm above my head Put an ice cube on it Took a Tylenol to dull the aftermath pain Squeezed my finger Wrapped it in a cold, wet towel Ran around the house yelling, Im bleeding! Prayed Found Sam and whined that I was in a hurry again Promised myself I would slow down in the kitchen Swore like a trucker Nothing worked this time, the bleeding was pretty ugly. But then I remembered the cayenne pepper stories that I read on Dr. Google (lol!) and found a bottle of cayenne liquid extract in my supplement cabinet. Its sold with a dropper. I drew up a dropperful of this, closed my eyes and waited for the burn, then squeezed it onto my bleeding finger. Nothing happened. I tried again. It was an epic fail. Then I thought of using the actual cayenne pepper and rummaged around my spice cabinet to find my cayenne pepper (powdered). Mind you, Im doing this all left-handed because my husband Sam was too freaked out and more in favor of driving me to an urgent care center. But Im a little doctor-phobic, so instead, I dumped a generous amount of cayenne pepper onto a paper towel. Heres where I found my bravery SNP, because as this is happening, Im noodling this thought, Who in their right mind would literally pour cayenne pepper onto a painful, oozing cut? After 30 minutes of fussing with it, feeling like I have nothing to lose at this point, I went ahead and did the unthinkable. I dipped it! It stung, no lie. So for the first 15 seconds, I continued ONLY with the last two usual things listed beforehand. By second 30, the bleeding had almost completely stopped. I couldnt believe it. Cayenne pepper has been studied for its medicinal actions on prostate or breast cancer, multiple myeloma, migraines, psoriasis, neuropathy and more. Ill share more details if you sign up for my free newsletter. Peppers are a nightshade so if youre allergic to those, please avoid. In the meantime, you should start sprinkling cayenne pepper onto your eggs and avocado toast. Keep it in a safe place in case you need it for a minor finger cut.

For many, its scarier than even death, which comes in at a close second. Other fears include getting sick or obese, being financially insecure and fear of flying. Psychologically, fear arises from how we were programmed in our early years of development by family and society. This includes exposure to abuse, violence and other trauma. The good news is that these fears can always be conquered when youre motivated despite what you have endured. I have counseled countless clients who have been driven by fear. Fear is darkness, and its when you allow yourself to illuminate light that the fear dissolves. My approaches in working with clients in fear are the following: 1. First distinguish irrational fears from rational ones using your intuitive gifts. 2. Take appropriate steps to heed protective fears and transform the others with courage. At times, you may feel real danger, however as a general rule of thumb, train yourself to question fears related to low self-esteem. For example, you may question the fear that you are too emotionally damaged to love; yet even the severely wounded can eventually open their hearts again, and there are wonderful techniques to use in order for this to happen. Below are some guidelines on how to distinguish fear from intuition: Reliable Intuition Feels right in your gut Has an affirming tone Conveys information on a neutral ground, unemotionally Gives a clear impression that is seen then felt Irrational Fear Highly feels emotionally charged Has cruel or unusual content Conveys no gut-centered confirmation or on-target feeling Reflects past psychological wounds Diminishes centeredness and perspective There are questions you can ask yourself to transform fear. 1. What are my top five fears? Rank from highest to lowest and begin with tackling your lower ones first. 2. Where is the origin of these fears? Review your life to find out their internal stimulus. 3. What people or situations set off your fears? Know what and who pushes your buttons so you are not lured into the same negative reactions. 4. What changes can I make to be freer? Now is your chance to do things differently. Its okay to admit that you have insecurities as we all do. Then get the courage to replace the fear with a positive alternative. Take the pressure off yourself by setting healthy boundaries how far we will go with someone and how far we will let them go with us. If these questions stir up emotions, then you will have a starting point of what you need to face and transform.

Some kind people took me in. 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, was treated for fleas and will be spayed the first week in September. I did not have a microchip. PAWS was not able to find my people, and I am now available for adoption. My foster mom loves cuddling with me. She says Im such a sweet girl and someone will be very lucky to have me. If you are able to give me love and a new forever home, call Pam at PAWS at 472-4823. Hello, Im Sasha. I was picked up on Airport Road off Casa Ybel by the Sanibel Police after a call from a local resident. I am approximately 1 to 2 years old, have no microchip and am a tan/black tabby. It appears I am not yet spayed. I am very sweet and gentle. I just found out that I am going to a foster home. I will be so happy to get out of the cage at Coral Veterinary Clinic. I am such a sweetheart that the staff at Coral Vet moved me into the surgical area where they spent a lot of time. They loved holding me and loving me in their free time. My combo test for FIV/ FeLV/Heartworms was negative. I have been given immunizations for FVRCP, FeLV, rabies, and given a heartworm and flea preventive. I will likely be spayed the first week in September. Please consider giving me a forever home. If youre interested in adopting me, call Pam at PAWS at 472-4823.

Call today for free screenings or referrals. 1-888-824-16219/7 TFN PUBLIC SERVICE Landing a big fish from the beach can be hard on the fish. Dragging a fish up onto the sand if youre going to release it is not an option as it usually damages or kills the fish. Hold the fish in the water while you unhook it if youre going to release it. The less you can touch a fish before release the better for the fish. If you want a picture with the fish, support it as you lift it out of the water and do it quickly. Before releasing, revive the fish while holding it in the water; moving it slowly back and forth so water goes over its gills. The fish will let you know when its ready to swim off. Florida just recently changed the regulations on fishing from shore. Florida residents as well as out of state visitors need a fishing license to fish from shore. Don't Harm The Fishby Capt.

Top 10 Real Estate SalesCourtesy of Royal Shell Real Estate 47 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 7, 2018 My Stars FOR WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 10, 2018Aries (March 21 to April 19) With your Arian charm quotient at an almost all-time high this week, plus all the facts to back you up, you just might win over the last doubters to your proposal. Taurus (April 20 to May 20) You might be in line for that job change you applied for. But be advised that you could be called on to defend your qualifications against supporters of other applicants. Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Creating a new approach to an old idea is one way to get beyond that workplace impasse. No such problems in your personal life, where things continue to flow smoothly. Cancer (June 21 to July 22) Be more forthcoming about your feelings concerning a proposed change either in your workplace or in your personal life. Your opinions are valuable. Dont keep them hidden. Leo (July 23 to August 22) A changing situation in your life needs more patience than you appear to be willing to offer. Allowing it to develop at its own pace is the wisest course you can take at this time. Virgo (August 23 to September 22) With more stability in your life on both personal and professional levels this could be a good time to strengthen relationships with both friends and colleagues. Libra (September 23 to October 22) People have always relied on your integrity not only to get the job done, but to get it done right. So dont be pressured by anyone into cutting corners to save time. Scorpio (October 23 to November 21) While others might get rattled over unexpected changes, your ability to adapt calmly and competently helps you make a positive impression during a crucial period. Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21) A changing environment might be daunting for some, but the adventurous Sagittarian takes it all in stride. A friend from the past could awaken some meaningful memories. Capricorn (December 22 to January 19) With your self-assurance rising to full strength, the bold Goat should feel confident about opening up to new ventures as well as new relationships. Aquarius (January 20 to February 18) Reaching out to someone who has been unkind to you might not be easy. But in the long run it will prove to have been the right thing to do. A friend offers moral support. Pisces (February 19 to March 20) Your keen insight once again helps you work through a seemingly insoluble problem in your workplace. The weekend offers a good chance to develop new relationships. Born This Week: You have a knack for finding details that others would overlook. You would make a fine research scientist. It was Scott Adams, best known as the creator of the Dilbert comic strip, who made the following observation: Give a man a fish, and youll feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and hell buy a funny hat. Talk to a hungry man about fish, and youre a consultant. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the word that has the largest number of different meanings is set; it takes 26 pages to detail them all. As fall approaches, heres some good news: Except for the queens, all wasps die in the autumn. There are those who feel that we should adopt the metric system of measurement, claiming that our current system is outdated and archaic. To go truly archaic, though, we could start measuring things in flags, baronies, falls, roods, townships and hides. Yes, those are actual terms of measurement. They equal, respectively, 25 square feet, 4,000 acres, 342 square feet, a quarter of an acre, 36 square miles and 10 acres. Do you suffer from misoneism? Quite a few people these days seem to; its a hatred or fear of change or innovation. Between Memorial Day and Labor Day, its estimated that Americans eat a whopping 818 hot dogs every second. In 1938, Fortune magazine published a prediction that, in hindsight, turns out to have been rather egregiously off the mark: Few scientists foresee any serious or practical use for atomic energy. They regard the atom-splitting experiments as useful steps in the attempt to describe the atom more accurately, not as the key to the unlocking of any new power. Should you shield the canyons from the windstorms, you would never see the true beauty of their carvings.
