But during the most recent excursion, she was joined by Dr. Jose H. Leal, the museums science director and curator, who attended the four-day specimen recovery expedition from September 13 to 17. Sailing aboard the RV Weatherbird II, Mensch and Dr. Leal joined Dr. Gregory Herbert, associate professor at the University of South Florida (USF) School of Geosciences and USFs Florida Institute of Oceanography, as well as a scientist from the Florida Fish & Conservation Commission (FWC) and several USF college students. The group ventured far into the gulf as part of Dr. Herberts ongoing project mapping the mollusk community of the Florida Continental shelf. Unlike the first trip I went on, the weather this time was really nice, said Mensch, who previously joined Dr. Herbert on a research excursion from February 22 to 26, during which three live junonias were recovered and subsequently given tocontinued on page 35 Dr. Jose H.

Sanibel Sea School Receives Grant From LCECSanibel Sea School has been awarded a grant by the Lee County Electric Cooperative (LCEC) to purchase a new stereomicroscope, which will allow students to magnify and better observe specimens found in the field during the organizations educational marine science programs. Having this type of microscope available makes it possible for us to apply scientific tools to our ocean discovery, said educator Nicole Finnicum. Kids are amazed when they see the contents of sand up close, or when we use the scope to display a sea cucumber dissection on our large TV screen. The microscope will be used primarily for Sanibel Sea Schools outreach programs, which bring landlocked children from throughout Lee County and the Southwest Florida region to participate in meaningful ocean education. It is so important to engage these students in science education to help prepare them for future careers and success in our technology-driven world, said Finnicum. We are so grateful to LCEC for making this addition to our lab possible. Sanibel Sea School is a 501(c)3 nonprofit whose mission is to improve the oceans future, one person at a time.

Just hours before the city filed a joint petition along with the City of Cape Coral and the Town of Fort Myers Beach to challenge the proposed amendments to Rule 40E-8.221(2), approved earlier this month by the South Florida Water management District (SFWMD), members of the council approved designating responsibilities for each member. Challenging that the SFWMDs proposed rule is not an invalid exercise of delegated legislative authority, the 30page petition notes four significant changes that were approved on September 13. These include increasing minimum mean monthly flows out of Lake Okeechobee from 300 cubic feet per second (cfs) to 400 cfs; eliminating as a MFL (Minimum Flows and Levels) exceedance any daily salinity exceedance of 20 parts per thousand (PPT); eliminating a unit of measurement for salinity; and requiring salinity measurements occur at mean low water. Although the first of these four enumerated changes is a modest improvement for the Caloosahatchee River Estuary (CRE) and petitioners, the improvement is not enough to make a meaningful difference, the petition reads in part. The remaining three enumerated changes are all to the clear detriment of the CRE and petitioners. The petition makes note of blue-green algae flowing down the Caloosahatchee from Lake Okeechobee as well as a more persistent red tide intruding from the Gulf of Mexico as contributing factors to the impaired water conditions throughout Southwest Florida. The toxins from these harmful algal blooms are negatively impacting human health and keeping them away from the water, the petition noted. Under a matrix proposed by Mayor Kevin Ruane, the assigned target groups and topic responsibilities would include: Ruane U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Department of Environmental Protection, Lee County Board of County Commissioners, legislative initiatives; Vice Mayor Mick Denham Municipalities, best practices; Councilman Chauncey Goss SFMWD, chamber of commerce, Horizon Council; Councilman Jason Maughan Department of Agriculture, health impacts; Councilwoman Holly Smith Tourist Development Council, realtors association, hoteliers association, Visit Florida, advocacy groups. This has grown bigger than I couldve imagined, and I think it has the potential to grow even bigger, Ruane said of the citys efforts to promote water quality issues at the regional, state and federal levels. I want as much help as humanly possible. Several members of the council offered their support for the mayors initiative. Although absent from the workshop session, Denham pledged he was All in, according to City Manager Judie Zimomra. This hits all of the big user groups, James Evans, director of the citys natural resources department, said of the proposed responsibilities matrix. Its a pretty good natural breakdown. According to Ruane, he and four additional Southwest Florida mayoral representatives went on the record at the SFWMD meeting opposing the districts decision to increase discharges out of Lake Okeechobee. Prior to the meeting, members of the district appeared to indicate they were in favor of decreasing discharges west of the lake during the rainy season. Of the petition filed on September 24, Ruane expressed his gratitude for the mayors from several surrounding communities for their support. In summary, there is no doubt petitioners are substantially affected by the proposed rule and all other laws and rules related to or affecting water quality in Southwest Florida. The shortfalls of the proposed rule are certain to result in continued significant harm to the CRE and directly-correlated economic interests of petitioners and Southwest Florida, the petition concludes. The states Division of Administrative Hearings has 10 days to respond to the petition. Proposed Residential Plan To Be Revisedby Jeff LysiakDuring Tuesdays Sanibel Planning Commission meeting, the issue involving four variances and a development permit for a proposed single-family residential development of a three-lot property on Woodring Road was tabled following a lengthy discussion involving landscaping, setbacks, driveways, pool cages and boat ramps. According to Roy Gibson, senior planner for the city, applicant William Jacobelli of WAJ Design Services and SAM Builders on behalf of property owners the Rebecca L. Monroe Trust submitted a request to approve four variances. They included allowing portions of the roof, railings and other features to be constructed above the angle of light height limitations; allowing the new residence to encroach within the minimum required 50-foot setback from the centerline of Woodring Road; and allowing an elevated swimming pool to exceed the maximum coverage and developed area permitted for the Mangrove Forest Ecological Zone. According to Gibsons staff report, the 1.54-acre property located at 1898 Woodring Road is comprised of three separate lots platted prior to the citys 1974 incorporation. An existing single-family residence, a detached storage/garage building, a boat dock, an onsite septic system and associated site improvements currently exist onsite. The applicant proposes to redevelop the property by removing all existing structures (except for the boat dock) and construct a new single-family dwelling with an elevated swimming pool. Following detailed presentations by both Gibson and Steven C. Hartsell, attorney for the property owner, members of the commission poured over several concerns raised by planning department staff. Among them were an insufficient plan to properly landscape the property, objections to the size of the driveway and the proposed addition of a screened pool cage and whether the residence complies with the citys Land Development Code Section 8643, which deals with the appearance, size and mass of structures. Hartsell, who noted support had been received from three neighboring properties, explained that his client was requesting a pool cage out of concerns for safety and fear of contracting the Zika virus, transmitted through the bite of the mosquito. Commission Chairman Dr. Phillip Marks assured Hartsell that the Zika virus typically is transmitted by mosquitoes found in more urban areas, like the City of Miami. This is a very challenging parcel of property to build upon, commented Commissioner Karen Storjohann. Hartsell offered that the submitted development plans for the property demonstrated that they would meet the citys variance standards, but further suggested that a number of modifications could be made and brought back before the commission to reconsider in a month or so. Commissioner Matt Kirchner said that he would look forward to reviewing a 3-D rendering of the revised property plans. Gibson requested that staff would need 10 days prior to the next planning commission meeting to review the adjusted variance and development permit applications. City Attorney John Agnew suggested that the commission postpone action on the matter until the October 23 session. Sanibel Budget Approved At $65.8Mby Jeff LysiakTwo weeks after introducing a preliminary budget estimate of $66,066,165, members of the Sanibel City Council approved the final budget for fiscal year 2019 at $65,810,780, more than one quarter of a million dollars less based upon a $200,000 decrease in transportation capital expenses and an anticipated continued on page 10

Plant SmartAmerican Evergreen by Gerri ReavesAmerican evergreen (Syngonium podophyllum) is a member of the Arum family and one of the most recognizable of traditional houseplants. Its relatives include elephant ear and anthurium. Credit this vines decades of popularity to an ability to grow and spread so easily the same characteristics that helped it to become a category-1 invasive pest plant in Florida. The Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council defines category-1 species as ones that are altering native plant communities by displacing native species, changing community structures or ecological functions, or hybridizing with natives. The definition is based on the documented ecological damage caused. Nearby Miami-Dade County has taken a firm stand on American evergreen and labeled it a controlled landscape plant, meaning that it cannot be planted within 500 feet of native plant communities because of its invasive potential. A native of Central America, this fast-growing succulent vine is an epiphyte, or air plant. Epiphytes are not parasites; they use their supporting plants as platforms to gather sunlight and nutrients. Orchids are among the best known epiphytes. American evergreen develops fleshy stems that can be wrist-thick and quickly climbs trees with aerial roots. Its weight can threaten native trees with toppling. It also can shade out natives and is known to be a particular threat to several endangered native ferns. When restricted to the ground, it forms a thick cover that can overtake other plants. One of its distinctive features is the difference between young and old leaves. Young arrowhead-shaped leaves inspire an alternate common name, arrowhead vine. At that stage, the plant is also called Nepthytis. Older leaves, on the other hand, have three to five leaflets on long stems. Mature leaves can develop a whorl of up to 12 lance-shaped leaflets with the largest one in the center. Leaves are large and all green or sometimes variegated in lighter grayish green. Many cultivars exist. The rooting stems and the leaves exude a milky sap that can irritate the skin. Contributing to the plants popularity is its ability to grow even in bad conditions, such as low light and poor soil. Specimens kept indoors with little light retain the arrowhead-shaped leaves in a perpetual youth. It blooms infrequently, but when it does, the whitish or greenish flowers are similar in structure to those of spathe lily (Spathiphyllum) or anthurium ( Anthurium andreanum) a fleshy spike embedded with flowers and sheathed in bracts. This vine easily roots from cuttings, but given its invasive status, think twice about propagating it. It is not recommended for landscape use in Florida. If its in your yard, consider removing it, taking care to properly dispose of all plant parts that might propagate. Sources: Five Hundred Plants of South Florida by Julia F.

Sea School Scavenger HuntOn Saturday, November 3, Sanibel Sea School will host the 1st annual Flip Flop Family Scavenger Hunt, a fun family-friendly event. Teams of up to eight participants can register to participate, and all proceeds will support the nonprofits scholarship fund, which provides meaningful ocean experiences to thousands of children in the region each year. We host Octifest every spring, but it is mostly geared towards adults. We have always wanted to plan a fundraiser that community members of all ages can attend and enjoy, said Sanibel Sea School Development Director Chrissy Basturk. In the past, we have offered a scavenger hunt as an Octifest live auction item, and the winners have always loved it. At check in, each scavenger hunt team will be given a book of clues and challenges, each worth a set amount of points. They will have to use their knowledge of the island, marine biology and local folklore to earn as many points as possible before the end of the day. Sometimes the team will have to take a photo to prove that they completed a challenge, or they might have to bring us a certain type of shell or another artifact, added Basturk. Past clues have required players to visit restaurants, pose for photos with island celebrities, or figure out where to find a certain colorful bird. No matter what, there are guaranteed to be lots of laughs and, at the end of the day, participants will be invited to attend a beach bonfire in celebration of ocean love. Tickets are $25 per person and can be purchased online at www.sanibelseaschool. org/flipflopfundraiser or by calling 472-8585.

During a brief meeting on Monday afternoon, council members approved an ad valorem operating millage rate of 1.9139, the same millage rate for three consecutive years. The final operating millage rate exceeds the rolled-back rate of 1.8721 mills by 2.23 percent. Previously, it had been noted that property values on Sanibel had reached an all-time high. The Lee County Property Appraiser preliminarily assessed Sanibels property values at $5,200,016,953, which is 2.96 percent higher than last years estimated value of $5,050,576,425. As part of the adopted budget package, the final sewer voted debt service millage rate was approved at 0.1394 mills, the final land acquisition voted debt service millage rate was approved at 0.0598 mills, and the final recreation center voted debt service millage rate was approved at 0.1055 mills. Councilors also approved a resolution amending the classification plan and pay schedule for city employees, eliminated the environmental biologist position while establishing an assistant natural resources director position, and reclassified the position of the deputy public works director to the deputy community services director/public works operations.

11 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 28, 2018 Sea School Offers STEM Classesby Jeff LysiakIn response to the ongoing impaired conditions of local waterways and concerns for the potential health hazards that red tide may have on students and staff, the education team at Sanibel Sea School has developed an alternative curriculum of classroombased STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) classes, which will begin next week. Sanibel Sea School has been severely economically impacted by red tide and the stigma of red tide, said Dr. Bruce Neill, executive director and cofounder of the school, whose flagship campus is located at 455 Periwinkle Way. When our business was hit hard, we scrambled to find some alternative activities for kids. Previously, the school had planned to conduct cast-netting classes during its weekly after school programs throughout the month of October. However, due to the continued concerns for the negative impacts red tide might present, the organization revamped its curriculum to provide STEM-based education. Weve developed some STEM courses, each of which has four to six individual sessions, said Shannen Stainken, director of education. Its fun, Bill Nye the Science Guy type of stuff. Experimental and interactive. According to Neill, the new STEM curriculum, which Sanibel Sea School plans to continue offering in the future, will fill the needs of the community without having students in contact with potentially impaired waters. Its a shift in the way we do business, he added. Simultaneously offering field-based programs and classroom experiences. Between October 9 and November 13, participants will be engaged in STEM classes focused upon physics, Newtons Laws of Motion (three weekly sessions), buoyancy and pressure. Stainken offered that these programs will include egg-drop experiments, building boats from recycled materials (which will be sailed), building rockets and building a catapult, using these student-made machines to demonstrate all three laws of motion. Hopefully, this will transform the way people think of Sanibel Sea School, Neill said of the additional emphasis of a STEM-based curriculum. All of our staff love science as much as they do being advocates for the ocean. Its like were putting the school back in Sanibel Sea School. After School STEM classes will be held on Tuesdays from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. on October 9, 16, 23 and November 6 and 13. Cost is $20 per session. 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. During the first session of Ocean Art, on November 27, campers will be creating sand casting artwork that will be decorated with shells and sea glass. The following week, on December 4 is Beach in a Bottle. Participants will make colored sand and then decorate their own glass bottles. On December 11, campers will create clay pots and yarn paintings. During the last session, on December 18, kids will make their own holiday ornaments with an oceaninspired theme. After School Ocean Art sessions will be held on Tuesdays from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Cost is $20 per session or $75 for the four-week class.

Life Rebounds In The Sound by Capt. Matt MitchellThis week proved to be one of the more memorable weeks of fishing on the sound than I have had in months. Bait birds and feeding fish have returned and, for now, things are looking so much better. In the middle sound just past Red Light Shoals, schools of feeding ladyfish and diving birds were a very welcome sight of normality. Fishing with longtime clients, the Naylor family from England, we went and gave shark fishing a go. After heading up to Rocky Channel on the low incoming tide, it did not take long to catch our first shark of the day. We caught blacktip sharks in the threeto four-foot range, basically one after another, as we watched quite a few tarpon rolling around the boat. About an hour into the trip, Gary Naylor was lucky enough to hook one of these tarpon that made a crazy long run and had us thinking it was another shark until it leaped sky high. After chasing this fish around, Gary did a great job and managed to mark tarpon off his bucket list. With all the schools of ladyfish and bait in the sound, the fall run of tarpon we get to enjoy should only get better and better. Once you locate these fish, you can generally return to them day after day or as long as the conditions remain the same. Fall tarpon fishing is my favorite fishing of the whole year as not only do these fish have very little angler pressure, they seem to feed better as they are packing on fat before the water temperature drops and they migrate south. Taking a stay-cation this weekend and heading up to Little Palm Island for a few days, I had a chance to see not only the condition of Pine Island Sound but also Charlotte Harbor and Lemon Bay. From Sanibel Lighthouse all the way north to Boca Grande, it was dead fish free and odor free. Once past Boca Grande, things where not so great at the northern most point of our trip, Lemon Bay. It was full of dead fish and the strong smell of red tide. Riding outside down the beach of Gasparilla and Little Palm Island, the red tide was really bad with cloudy water and no life. Although Southwest Florida is far from being done with this nasty red tide, the sound seems like it has rebounded for now, although there are areas to our north that are not so lucky. Dont lose hope! Get back out on the water and enjoy some of our fabulous fall fishing. Capt. Matt Mitchell has been fishing local waters since he moved to Sanibel in 1980. He now lives in St. James City and works as a back country fishing guide. If you have comments or questions, email captmattmitchell@aol. com. ISLAND MARINE SERVICES, INC.

13 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 28, 2018Sanibel Goes Strawlesssubmitted by Sam Lucas, Coastal KeepersOver 500 million plastic straws are used in the United States annually, making them one of the most common trash items collected on beaches. Not only can they be unpleasant to look at on our beaches, they are also sometimes ingested by wild animals. But perhaps the largest issue is the deposition of millions of pounds of plastic into the natural world that will take millennia to decompose. We are finding that as plastics break apart into smaller plastic particles, they are becoming integrated into the food web, creating unnatural and unhealthy chemical infusions in animals. We are altering the physiology of the animals we rely on to support human life. Coastal Keepers, formerly the SanibelCaptiva Chapter of START, is a group of island citizens that create and implement local conservation initiatives that promote and improve the future of marine resources, and our coastal heritage. We want to make our lives on the islands just a little better and make the world a better place for future generations. We saw a way to help our island community reduce the plastic load we leave to our children, so Coastal Keepers launched an initiative, Strawless on Sanibel, in February 2018. Strawless on Sanibel was designed to reduce the use of single-use plastic straws on our island and to educate locals and visitors about the threats single-use plastics pose to future generations. Coastal Keepers partnered with 12 businesses who recognized that they were contributing to the global plastic load, and diminishing the experience of their customers by doing so. Together, they pledged to transition away from plastic straws. Coastal Keepers provided support and guidance throughout the implementation process. With the Strawless on Sanibel coalition, Coastal Keepers urged the Sanibel City Council to regulate plastic straws on our sanctuary island. In response, the City of Sanibel researched and drafted an outstanding plastic straw ordinance. The ordinance does not permit the distribution or sale of single-use plastic straws by commercial entities on Sanibel. Residents are encouraged to go strawless or to utilize environmentally-friendly alternatives such as reusable straws or straws made of paper or compostable materials. The ordinance will go into effect in 120 days, beginning in January 2019. In the meantime, the city will focus on educating commercial establishments, and helping identify alternative options as needed. After the transition period, if businesses do not comply with the ordinance, penalties will be issued. The penalty schedule is included in the ordinance. The goal of the ordinance is to help enrich the lives of our citizens, while ensuring for a healthy and vibrant environment for future generations. Some of the exclusions to the ordinance include: The use of a plastic straw by any disabled person that requires or relies on the use of a straw to consume beverages and/or food supplements; Pre-packaged beverages with plastic straws sold or distributed within the city, provided that such beverages are prepared and packaged outside the city and are not altered, packaged or repackaged within the city; Medical or dental facilities; A plastic straw that is included with and manufactured as a part of, or in combination with, a re-usable beverage container and is intended for continued and multiple uses with such container; Land or facilities owned and managed by the Lee County School Board, Lee County, the State of Florida or the federal government. Single-use plastic straws are not the only source of plastic we are leaving to our future generations, but their elimination is a great first step. Conservation often starts with small steps in the right direction. Globally, the straw movement is building, and awareness is spreading; individuals and businesses are more frequently evaluating their plastic habits, and finding ways to become better environmental stewards. Our small step is worth celebrating as the City of Sanibel continues to protect our sanctuary island for future generations. Coastal Keepers has purchased reusable stainless steel straws and is more than happy to supply them to anyone who would like to own their own sustainable straw. To receive a straw, learn more about Coastal Keepers, or to get involved with our efforts, call 472-8585, email coastalkeeepers@sanibelseaschool.org or visit www.sancapcoastalkeepers.org. Bonsai Society MeetingThe Bonsai Society of Southwest Florida will meet at the Berne Davis Botanical Garden on Saturday, October 20 at 9 a.m. The group will discuss displays, pots and stands for the November 3 to 4 show. There will also be slides shown from the 2017 show. The public is invited; admission and parking are free, and advice will be available on trimming and maintaining your tree.

Natural History Museum Seminar This SundayNo matter where they are or what their focus, natural history museums are a valuable source of knowledge, insight and enjoyment for all ages. On Sunday, September 30 at 9 a.m., Dorrie Hipschman, executive director of the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum, will join the Rev. Dr. John H. Danner, senior pastor of Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ, for a presentation at the church about these museums in all their variety. Theyll discuss the importance of the facilities in todays world, including the museums ability to raise public awareness of issues that impact the environment. This seminar will be in Heron Hall, on the lower level of the church, and is free and open to the public. At 10 a.m., immediately following the presentation, the church will offer a traditional Sunday worship service during which Pastor Danner will speak on The Wisdom of James. Special music will also be a part of the service. The church is located at 2050 Periwinkle Way. For more information, call the church office at 472-0497 or visit www.sanibelucc.org.

Shell Of The WeekThe Chalky Lucineby Jos H. Leal, PhD, BaileyMatthews National Shell Museum Science Director and CuratorThe Chalky Lucine, Pegophysema schrammi, (Crosse, 1876) is the largest of the local species of the diverse bivalve family Lucinidae. It commonly reaches 80 mm (about 3.1 inches) in length. Its shell is very inflated (fat) and similar to the also local Buttercup Lucine ( Anodontia alba ), but it lacks the smooth, bright-yellow inner shell surface of this species. Instead, the inside surface of the Chalky Lucines valves is whitish and very rough, almost pebbly. Lucinids, such as the Chalky Lucine, are mostly filter-feeders that also host symbiotic bacteria in their gills, which provide them with an additional source of food.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 28, 201816 Youth Ministry Holds Back To School BashThe H2O middle school and high school youth ministry from Sanibel Community Church held its annual Back to School Bash on August 29. It was a great night of fun. Teens tackled the blow-up obstacle course, Gladiator Joust and Velcro Wall, and shared plenty of laughs while taking pictures in the photo booth. They dined on walking tacos and Joeys Custard. There were many giveaways as well, with the grand prize being a GoPro. It was a night for the students to reconnect after a busy summer, and gear up for the fall youth group. Teen Challenge gave emotional testimonies and ministered to the young people all evening. Teen Challenge is a local ministry from Fort Myers that ministers to men and women of all ages, providing Christ-centered, faith-based solutions for youth, adults and families struggling with life-controlling problems, such as addiction. Caitlin Ross, a high schooler from the island who graduated from The Sanibel School, gave a powerful testimony as to how the Lord has worked in her life, and Pastor Kevin Schafer demonstrated the gospel in a live presentation. H2O Student Ministries is a program for sixth through 12th grade young men and women. The group meets on Wednesday evenings from 5 to 7 p.m. for middle school students, from 6 to 8 p.m. for high school students, and on Sunday mornings at 11 a.m. in the Youth Center at Sanibel Community Church. All students on the island and surrounding communities are welcome to attend. Sanibel Community Church is an evangelical, non-denominational congregation with the church campus at 1740 Periwinkle Way (next to Jerrys Market).

CROW Case Of The Week: Coopers Hawk by Bob PetcherA Coopers hawk ( Accipiter cooperii) is a medium-sized hawk that is about the size of a crow. Like many other birds of prey, males are generally smaller than females. Both genders do have long tails and small but strongly hooked bills. An adult Coppers hawk has reddish eyes compared to a juveniles yellow eyes. Adults also have more mature upperparts with reddish-barred chests in contrast to juveniles brown upperparts and brownstreaking, white underparts. Coppers hawks sport a flap-flap-glide flight pattern, not a consistent flapping sequence. The wing beats become more aggressive if this hawk is in pursuit of prey. This hawk doesnt mind crashing through tree branches in pursuit of birds, its primary source of food. In fact, Coppers hawks are not known to be fish-eaters. They prefer mourning doves, jays, robins, pigeons or game birds such as grouse, pheasants and quail. While smaller birds are usually not targeted, the so-called chicken hawk does attack small mammals like mice, squirrels or chipmunks, rabbit and bats. At CROW, an adult Coopers hawk was admitted to the clinic from Cape Coral on September 20. The finder reportedly discovered the hawk on the ground in his backyard. Its wings had been splayed for more than 12 hours. When the patient arrived at the clinic, it received diagnostic tests including an intake exam, radiographs and blood work. The intake exam did not reveal any obvious signs of trauma, but the hawk was a bit thin, dehydrated and unable to stand. X-rays did not show any broken bones or other abnormalities. Blood work was noted to be within normal limits, which was said to reduce the chance that toxicity, such as rodenticide, was the issue. While red tide poisoning was not totally ruled out, it does seem unlikely, according to Dr. Malka Spektor, CROW veterinary intern. No testing was done to look for brevetoxicosis, but it would be extremely unlikely because Coopers hawks eat birds and small mammals, not fish or shellfish, she said shortly after the patients intake. It is still on the list of possibilities, but very low down. CROW medical officials believe that the hawk possibly experienced some kind of trauma, leaving it temporarily stunned. It was given fluids, started on a re-feeding plan and given some time to rest. It was reassessed daily for further neurological symptoms. Wild birds are very good at hiding signs of pain or injury as a survival mechanism, said Dr. Spektor. As far as visual signs of trauma, if they are there, we generally find them thorough physical examination and radiographs. Generally, a patient that is temporarily stunned will recover within 24 to 48 hours. The patient has shown neurologic improvement, and is now using its feet more than it was on intake. No other neurologic symptoms have developed. After more tests, medical treatment and rest during the weekend, the patient appears to be doing much better. Based on the diagnostics, we were able to eliminate a number of potential causes. It is most likely that the hawk sustained some swelling near its spine as the result of a trauma, such as a window strike. As the swelling reduced, it was able to regain function of its legs, said Dr. Spektor. After the weekend, the hawk has shown great improvement and is not only standing, but is also flying. It will likely be released in the next couple of days.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 28, 201820 The Community HouseBasilby Resident Chef Jarred HarrisBasil is one of the most popular herbs in the world. Not only can it be used in pesto, tomato sauce, salad dressings, smoothies and desserts, basil is used in folk medicine to treat fever, upset stomach, anxiety and depression. Native to India and Asia, basil is a member of the mint family and has been cultivated for over 5,000 years. The term basil originates from the Greek word Basileus, which translated means king. Basil has been found in mummies in Egypt. The herb was used in embalming by ancient Egyptians. The ancient Greeks and Romans were very superstitious about basil. They believed the herb would only grow if you screamed and shouted while sowing the seeds. They also believed if a basil leaf was left under a pot, it would turn into a scorpion. During British Colonial rule in India, magistrates would make defendants swear on basil leaves, because the herb was considered holy. It was also used as an antidote for snake bites and was believed to give strength during religious ceremonies. Basil contains high levels of vitamin K, manganese, iron, magnesium, vitamins A, C and B6. It contains anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, and also acts as a natural adaptogen. In addition to its culinary and medicinal purposes, basil is used in the production of shampoos, soaps, perfumes and dental products. Basil contains chemicals that repel insects. In fact, basil is toxic to mosquitos. Here is an interesting recipe to try: Basil and Berry Sorbet 1 cup sugar 1 cup water 1 cup fresh basil (lightly packed) 6 cup frozen mixed berries 1 cup lemon juice (about 6 lemons) Method Place the first three ingredients into a sauce pan and bring to a simmer, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and discard the basil. Cool the liquid over an ice bath and set aside. In a blender, puree frozen berries, lemon juice and cooled basil syrup until smooth. Pour the mix into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturers instructions. Resident Chef Jarred Harris heads the Culinary Education Center at The Community House on Sanibel. For volunteer opportunities or questions, contact him at kitchen@ sanibelcommunityhouse.net or call 472-2155. Dollars Donated To Help Feed The HungryOn September 15, members of the H2O Youth Group from Sanibel Community Church gathered to harvest $1,850 from the walls of the restaurant Cantina Captiva on Captiva. The owner of the restaurant, Sandy Stilwell, gave permission to gather those dollars to donate to hungry neighbors through the Feed The 5000 Now Christian Initiative. Feed The 5000 Now was launched in 2011 by Sanibel residents Michael and Sharon Bugler after Michael was compelled to fast for three days. Towards the end of the fast, they realized how blessed they are to know where their next meal is coming from. Many people in Southwest Florida are not so fortunate. The money raised is given to organizations who use the Harry Chapin Food Bank, where they are able to turn each $1 into $8 worth of food.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 28, 201824 SUN Book ReviewWhen Life Gives You Lululemonsby Di SaggauFew can forget The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger. It was made into a fabulous movie, and now the author is back with When Life Gives You Lululemons, which picks up where Prada left off. Emily Charlton has left Runway magazine, moved to Los Angeles, where she is chain-smoking, depressed and dissatisfied with her career as a celebrity stylist and image consultant. She knows everyone from the Kardashians to the Clooneys, but shes not a happy camper. The novel opens with her watching her husband, Miles, standing in an infinity pool with a topless girl on his shoulders. Emily gets a phone call that ends up taking her to New York on a publicity emergency for one of her clients, a rapper named Rizzo, who is a real piece of work. She visits her friend Miriam, a married mother of two in Greenwich, Connecticut, who enlists Emilys help for a former supermodel named Karolina Hartwell, who has been charged with DUI. Karolina has been wrongly accused. Her husband is a handsome senator from New York, and the bad publicity jeopardizes his presidential aspirations so he wants to dump Karolina, which will cause her to lose custody of a stepson she adores. Emily has lost a few clients and is hopeless with social media. She needs a big opportunity. Emily finds her comeback opportunity in Karolina. Emily, Karolina and Miriam band together to navigate the social land mines of suburban Greenwich. They reveal the truths and the lies that simmer just below the glittering surface. Along the way, an indispensable ally emerges in one Miranda Priestly. So many designer labels fill Lululemons that its like CliffNotes for the upper class. Frette makes the best towels, Matouk are the chic sheets, et cetera. Emily is introduced to sip n see parties, where the Greenwich housewives sip wine in honor of a newborn, but the baby never makes an appearance. Emily gets a real education at these parties. When Life Gives You Lululemons gives readers an alluring look into a sexy, over-the-top world, with Weisbergers signature wit. I sure loved the book and hope its made into a movie. Did anyone else have to Google Lululemons to see what they were? Its never too late to learn something new. School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Readers, T his is the final article about homework, at least for a while, and its about writing a homework contract with your child. It can be hard to get on the same page with your child about everyday trouble spots like homework and numerous other behaviors like cell phone use. But when you both develop and agree to something in writing, sticking with it can be much easier. Homework contracts should be written as formal documents with specific behaviors clearly outlined for each party as well as rewards and consequences for following or not following the contract. Both parents and child should sign the document and include a review date as well. Here is a sample document for elementary-aged students adapted from www.understood.org that may be helpful in writing your own contract.

Captiva Triathlon Raises $45,000 For Food PantryDespite challenges with red tide concerns and canceling the swim portion of the annual race, the Galloway Captiva Triathlon for charity was a huge success at South Seas Island Resort on Captiva. It involved competition, sportsmanship and giving back to the community. This years event brought in over 650 competitors from throughout the state of Florida and from 15 different states nationwide. In total, over $45,000 was raised to support the School Mobile Food Pantry program at Community Cooperative, whose mission is to end hunger and homelessness in Lee County. The success of this event is due to the outstanding coordinated efforts of the event planning team of Ken and Kate Gooderham and Angie Ferguson as well as our volunteers, sponsors and, of course, the race participants, said Tracey Galloway, CEO of Community Cooperative. Every year this event outpaces our expectations, and we couldnt be more pleased with this years results, and we are already excited for next years race. Having a great charity to support helps people get and stay involved and getting to see that support help the community really inspires us and our athletes, said Ken Gooderham of Gooderham & Associates and Southwest Florida Events. More than 500 adults and 150 children competed in the biking and running portions of the triathlon, with some 70 volunteers working the two-day event, handing out 100 trophies and plaques to both winners and sponsors.

The trio, all members of the Americana Community Music Association (ACMA), shared the stage while performing their music on various acoustic guitars and banjo. According to Metts, ACMAs mission is to support independent music and musicians with programs that expand community appreciation and education. We want to bring Americana music to the people, Metts said. We also have songwriter circles, during which we listen, teach and encourage our fellow musicians. About 40 people attended the September 21 gathering, with Metts, Gallant and Hintz exchanging turns behind the microphone, sometimes singing a solo song while sharing the spotlight on a number of duets. Orginal tunes performed included Baby, Youre Alright, A Conversation With Death, Whats On My Mind and The River, a sobering song penned by the late Tommy Powell. Metts noted that he received permission to record that tune by Powells widow, and $1 for sales of his self-produced CD will be donated to Captains for Clean Water. Throughout the concert, audience members tapped their toes and clapped along to the witty and whimsical Americana songs, which contained elements of folk, blues, country, R&B and bluegrass. A heartfelt round of applause followed each song as well. After kicking off on Captiva Island last weekend, with performances at venues including Cantina Captiva, The Crows Nest, Doc Fords, Key Lime Bistro, The Mucky Duck, RC Otters, South Seas Island Resort and Tween Waters Island Resort & Spa, the 10-day Island Hopper Songwriter Fest will wrap up with performances on Fort Myers Beach this Friday through Sunday, September 28 to 30.

ISLAND SUN BUSINESS NEWSMAKERS Jennifer McSorley Les Pendleton Chuck Andrews Rotary Happeningssubmitted by Shirley JewellWeather, clean water and politics have been front and center throughout the summer here in at Southwest Florida. Sanibel-Captiva Rotary tries to bring in speakers from the community on trending topics with long-range significance for our local communities. The exception has somewhat been regarding politics. We pretty much try and stay away from that, but on September 28, the club will have Amira Fox, Floridas chief assistant state attorney, as guest speaker. Her topic is yet to be announced, but it should be interesting and hopefully not to controversial. Our speaker on September 21, Jordan Patrick, ABC7 meteorologist, was a darn good speaker. From the get go, he brought out some significant facts. So far, during the 2018 hurricane season, the U.S. has had 10 named Atlantic tropical storms with potential to develop into hurricanes. The west coast of Florida was threatened by subtropical storm Alberto on Memorial Day and subtropical storm Gordon on Labor Day. We have just passed the peak for hurricane season, but its not over until November. Luckily, Florence didnt affect the west coast of Florida but brought about intense weather with hurricane rains and winds to North and South Carolina and states beyond. Flooding was and continues to be the major concern from these areas with death tolls rising, along with substantial property damage. Atlantic Hurricanes typically develop off the coast of West Africa from prevailing winds across the Sahara Desert over warm ocean waters where they gather strength as tropical waves. High pressure areas over the western Atlantic Ocean or over the U.S. east coast will keep these storms moving west. There are then two areas of development beyond; one over the Caribbean Sea and another off the east coast of the U.S. Air flow around high pressure systems and toward low pressure areas influence hurricane tracks. Hurricanes are unpredictable, and Jordan emphasized the need to prepare for these storms. Get your hurricane supplies ready; food, water, batteries, lights, radio, medicines, money, gas for your car and pet supplies. Take pictures of your property both inside and out. Know what hurricane zone youre in, know where hurricane shelters are located, get out early, dont wait. Carry with you all forms of identification including your passport and insurance papers. There was a question from one of our Rotarians regarding the effect weather has on red tide. Jordans answer was that the rains from large storms flush fertilized water from inland farms and residential areas into the Okeechobee and Caloosahatchee. Fertilizer runoff fuels many harmful algal blooms. Though Florida red tides start offshore, away from coastal nutrient sources, blooms can drift toward shore and use both natural nutrients and man-made runoff. Fertilizer runoff fuels harmful algal blooms. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets Friday mornings at 7 a.m. at The Dunes Golf & Tennis Club. Guests are welcome. Jordan Patrick photo provided Poets Corner selected by Hannah Star RogersHistoryby Carlie HoffmanThe summer before, we found an otter dried up on the wharf. You scoured its oiled fur with the tip of a kitchen match, the eyes already picked clean by gulls. Dont look, which meant all I could have done was watch you as you lifted the dark carcass into a trash can. Light it, which meant Stay until the sun orphaned the landscape and we stood in the dangerous glow of the sun wed made. Hannah Star Rogers holds an MFA from Columbia University and a PhD from Cornell University. Her writing has appeared in the Kenyon Review, LA Review of Books, Carolina Quarterly and Southern Womens Review. We invite submissions from local poets. Anyone interested may submit their work via email to Islandsunpoetry@ gmail.com. Each week, an individual poem will be showcased.

Sanibel, FL 33957 11508 Andy Rosse Ln. Captiva, FL 33924 REDUCED REDUCED REDUCED Sanibel Public Library Board Adopts BudgetThe Sanibel Public Library District Board of Commissioners unanimously approved a final millage rate of 0.4350 at its budget hearing on September 20. A mill is $1 per every $1,000 of taxable valuation. The librarys tax revenue budget is $2,180,924 for fiscal year 2018-19, which starts October 1. According to Dan Moeder, the board treasurer, as part of the budget, the library commissioners approved a plan to slowly build back the reserves grown over the past 20 years through grants, patron gifts and tax revenues, following the one-year Your Library Reimagined renovation that is near completion. This renovation was required to replace our 25-year-old infrastructure for items such as air conditioning, electrical, plumbing, data wiring and fire suppression equipment, said Moeder. The library has increased its budget for both print and digital collections, according to Margaret Mohundro, library executive director. Access is everything. Reading, viewing, downloading, and streaming remain popular and growing; and we continue to see demand for specialized database access such as online language learning and ancestry/ genealogy information, she said. The Sanibel Public Library District is an independent district serving Sanibel Island. The library ranks at or near the top among all Florida public libraries for checkouts, visits, program attendance and Internet use; and regularly is awarded high rankings among the 9,000-plus public library systems in the U.S. For more information, call the library at 472-2483 or visit online at www. sanlib.org.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 28, 201834 Work to turn the ghosts that haunt you into the ancestors that accompany you. Bruce Springsteen I was inspired to write this after midnight from our hotel room in New York City after my wife and I enjoyed Springsteen on Broadway, an amazing show by The Boss himself covering his life and music. The quote above is not from the performance; rather its from his autobiographical book, Born to Run, which serves as the material on which the production is based. Attending college and law school throughout Springsteens heyday in the 1980s, his music was an important part of my youth. From Tenth Avenue Freeze Out, my fraternitys theme song, to My Hometown, covering race relations and economic hardship, and Born to Run, an anthem of restless youth, I identified with his lyrics and message. Not to mention the rollicking good times my friends and I experienced at his energetic, pulsating, three-hours-plus concerts. Springsteen is now 68 years old, ancient by rock and roll standards. It was clearly evident the importance he placed on telling his personal story, and the desire he has to show the depth of his music and lyrics beyond Top 40 fodder. The production features Springsteen on acoustic guitar and piano, rearranging his hits to sound more like Bob Dylan or Arlo Guthrie than what you might remember emanating from your stereo speakers so long ago. In the book and during the show, he speaks of the troubled relationship he had with his alcoholic, bi-polar father. When Springsteen was only 19 years old, his father moved his mother and youngest sister across the country from their longtime home in Freehold, New Jersey to San Mateo, California. His parents essentially abandoned him. It would be years before his fame and fortune. His 17-year-old pregnant sister was also left behind to fend for herself. He covers the painful feelings over his mothers ambivalence about how the move would tear the family apart. Knowing this, she went along out of devotion to her husband. Yet, as the book progresses through his lifes journey, Springsteen reveals how he came to terms with his familys good and bad, and how grateful he was for his life experience. Had events not unfolded as they did, he may not have become the reverential figure of today. I feel much the same way about my upbringing. I was born to a 24-year-old father and a 22-year-old mother, both of whom then lacked the maturity and economic wherewithal to support a son, and then, nearly three years later, a daughter. Like Springsteens family, my parents, running from their demons, moved from Indianapolis to Clearwater when my sister and I were teens. Unlike Springsteens family, however, we all moved. My parents seemed to lurch from one tragedy to the next, not learning from their youthful mistakes. Despite this, they remained devoted to one another, their marriage lasting more than 54 years until my mothers death two years ago. So strong was my parents devotion to one another, and so difficult was their struggle to make ends meet, that my sister and I became tertiary figures to the play that became our life. Both of us suffered lasting emotional scars. But, just as Springsteen states, without those scars I wouldnt have become the man that I am. I wanted a different upbringing for my three daughters, and my sister and her husband successfully raised a son and daughter as well. Weve learned valuable lessons from our parents shortcomings. I wasnt perfect raising my family, as Ive made my share of mistakes. They were mostly different mistakes, although Ill admit to repeating some. A man learns fatherhood through his fathers actions, Springsteen said during the performance. Like Springsteen, I realize that if I dont turn the ghosts that haunt me into ancestors that accompany me, Ill just transfer my baggage to the next generation. I decided between my father and me that the sum of our troubles would not be the summation of our lives together... There are irretrievable lives and unredeemable sins, but the chance to rise above is one I wish for yours and mine, he writes. Near the end of the show, Springsteen speaks glowingly of his now deceased father. Before launching into Dancing in the Dark, he describes his 93-year-old mother, who is seven years into Alzheimers. He uses the song to tell us about his mothers love for dance and her positive influence on his life. Anyone whos both suffered through childhood trauma and then later raised a family of ones own can identify with the powerful emotions conveyed during this shows two and a half hours. Im just happy that I had the opportunity to reflect on words of wisdom uttered by one of my boyhood heroes, who, as it turns out, is so much more than a rock and roll legend. Craig R. Hersch.

Red tide may have kept competitors out of the water for the Galloway Captiva Triathlon, but it could not keep them from doing their best and having a good time the entire race weekend. Whether it was the kids and adults trying a tri for the first time or the seasoned competitors enjoying the race one more time, there were plenty of smiles mixed in with the sand and sweat. Amid beautiful weather, the kids race on September 15 and the sprint event on September 16 went off gloriously. The athletes certainly won and so did spectators, but the big winner were Lee Countys hungry kids served by Community Cooperatives Healthy School Pantry and Backpack program. Among other things, this program sends backpacks home with kids on weekends so they have food to eat (breakfast and lunch) when school isnt in session. The $45,000 donation from this years Galloway Captiva Tri will fund more than six months of that program. All this was made possible by the registration fees, our fantastic volunteers and our terrific sponsors: First, the Galloway Family of Dealerships, our title sponsor again this year; Lee County Sports Development, our sprint event sponsor; Attorney Jason Gunter, the childrens event sponsor; South Seas Island Resort, the official resort; Geared Up Multisport Specialists, the official coach; Lee Health, swim caps sponsor; Jasons Deli, food sponsor; LCEC; Sanibel-Captiva Beach Resorts; Billys Bike Rentals (also offering good deals on race rentals); Suncoast Beverages (beer provider); Key Lime Bistro and Cantina Captiva; Trek Bicycle Store (also offering good deals on race rentals); Doc Fords Rum Bar & Grille; Jensens Twin Palm Cottages and Marina and Jensens on the Gulf; Sunset Grill; RS Walsh Landscaping; Sunny Island Adventures. We were kept safe by the Lee County Sheriffs Department, the Captiva Fire District, Lee County EMS, and lifeguards from Lee County Parks and Recreation. In particular, we want to thank the residents of Captiva, who are so generous to let us close their road for two hours during the race; the Captiva and Sanibel athletes who participated this year; the volunteers and the Captiva sponsors. It takes a community to run (yes, pun intended) a great triathlon(or duathlon), and we saw that community spirit again this year.

35 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 28, 2018 From page 1Expeditionthe Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum for further examination and study. (Dr. Herberts) been working on this research for the past 10 years, and he still gets excited about it.This past winter, Mensch took part in a research expedition which made headlines locally and in the international shelling community. After performing 30 dredges of marine material virtually around the clock some 100-plus miles out into the Gulf of Mexico, at depths of 65 to 1,100 feet, the marine biologist returned to Sanibel with three live junonias. Still thriving in museum research tanks, the live junonias (Scaphella junonia) continue to be monitored and studied, although they spend most of their day buried in the sand. And while the live mollusks arent on public display at the museum, they are being featured in videos and photo galleries posted on the museums website, www.shellmuseum. org/junonia. Earlier this month, the USF research excursion ventured out into gulf waters at least 100 miles offshore, Dr. Leal noted. We were well north of Tampa in an area called the Florida Middle Grounds. That area is filled with lush, diverse coral reefs. The RV Weatherbird II is equipped with advanced laboratories, oceanographic devices and sensor technology designed to enable scientists and students to study and learn about various aspects of the oceans biological, chemical, geological and physical characteristics. Using a three-foot wide dredge haul operating nearly 18 hours a day, the scientists and students sifted through marine material pulled up from the bottom of the sea floor. Depths that materials were dredged from ranged from between 200 and 800 feet. The deeper you go, the longer it takes, explained Mensch. You never know what youre going to pull up, added Dr. Leal. During the most recent four-day expedition, the dredge yielded one live junonia, although the specimen perished before it could be brought back to shore. The shell will be dissected and further studied at the museum, continuing the historically significant research being conducted on the elusive junonias. Also found were two other Scaphella genus mollusks, discovered at depths of 750 and 800 feet, respectively, and a rare Sconsia striata, a relative of the common Scotch bonnet. I thought Gregs leadership was amazing, said Dr. Leal, who was also impressed with the quality of USFs Florida Institute of Oceanography research vessel as well as the intelligence of the USF students attending the excursion. The whole thing was really smooth and well run. On Sunday, October 14 beginning at 2 p.m., Dr. Leal will be discussing his experiences attending the research expedition at the Sanibel-Captiva Shell Club monthly meeting, held at the Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum, located at 3075 Sanibel Captiva Road.

Superior InteriorsSpruce Up Your Front Entryway by Marcia FeeneyThe front entryway of a home makes the first impression on guests, neighbors and passers-by. There is simply no excuse to neglect this space. With the daily activities of friends and neighbors passing your home, it is vital to put forth the effort to make the front entryway just as endearing and welcoming as the main attraction. Take advantage of seasonal splendors and spruce up your entryway by using nature as your inspiration. Transform your outdoor space and give your neighbors something to talk about, with a few helpful hints. If the stairs and railings are outdated and make the rest of the space look uninviting, nows the time for an upgrade. A more modern finish on both pieces can bring the front entryway back to life. If youd rather not turn this into a large project, just spruce up the current setup. A fresh coat of paint or an arrangement of fresh flowers can easily transform the stairwell. Beyond functionality, lighting can make or break the mood of your front entryway. If the single pendant light fixture isnt doing it for you anymore, consider a different style, such as sconces. Add some flare by stringing lights through the railing to guide guests up to your home. A bright, beautiful bench is a staple front entryway piece if space allows for it, of course. If there is no room to accommodate a full bench, add a small chair with a stool that acts as a side table. What better way to welcome guests with open arms than by embracing the natural elements in front entryway decor? Plant fresh, seasonal flowers in the flower bed. Place potted plants near the doorway or pick up a few hanging arrangements from the local florist. Dont forget to hang a gorgeous wreath on the front door. This is a simple way to freshen up an entryway, just make sure to regularly maintain the greenery. Beyond the natural features, dont forget about the accent pieces that complete the entryway. A welcome mat that greets guests at the door, or a sign that can be seen from the edge of the driveway can emphasize the desired feeling of an inviting oasis.

Golf Legends Victory Called Greatest Comeback In Sports Historyby Ed FrankIn the annals of sports, there have been hundreds, even thousands, of stirring comebacks. What about the 2004 Boston Red Sox, down three games to none to the New York Yankees in the America League Championship Series, who went on to win four straight from the Yankees and then four straight from the St. Louis Cardinals to capture their first World Series title in 86 years. That is known as the greatest comeback in baseball history. And then there is the 2017 Super Bowl Champions New England Patriots, who overcame a 25-point deficit to the Atlanta Falcons to take the game to overtime, and then win it 34-28 in the first OT series. The 31 unanswered points cemented the Patriots legacy as the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history. These are just two of so many stirring comebacks in sports history. But none compare to what we witnessed last weekend when Tiger Woods, at age 42, overcame the adversity of four back surgeries, including back fusion surgery, to capture the Tour Championship for his first tour victory in more than five years and his 80th triumph on the PGA tour. This amazing win before a bedlam gallery at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, and viewed by millions worldwide on television, already is being called the Greatest Comeback in Sports History. This reporter spoke to several viewers afterwards, not all golf followers and not all sympathetic to Tigers personal life travails, who admitted they had tears in their eyes when he sank that final put on the 18th hole to win the prestigious tournament. Youve got to remember that as recently as a year ago he was facing the possibility of never playing golf again. In fact, he wasnt sure if hed ever live without pain the rest of his life let alone swing a golf club. I couldnt sit, I couldnt walk. I couldnt lie down without feeling the pain in my back and my leg. If this was to be how the rest of my life was going to be, it was going to be a tough rest of my life, he said after last Sundays Tour championship victory. But a never-give-up attitude and a ruthless work ethic has returned Tiger to the pinnacle of golf and has given the game a well-needed shot in the arm. Since Woods had last won a tournament, the 2013 Bridgestone Invitational, 119 players have won on the PGA Tour and 16 have won Major tournaments. Most grew up watching Tiger dominate the game year after year. But we must not forget his 80th tour victory last weekend edged him within two of Sam Sneads all-time victory count. And even more incredible is the fact that when Tiger returned to competitive golf in his first comeback appearance at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas, he was ranked 668th in the world. His tie for second in the Valspar earned him enough points to vault to 149, and his win last weekend jumped him to No. 13. One more strong finish could move him to the top 10 and within reach of No. 1 a ranking he once held for a cumulative 683 weeks. There will be many, many comeback heroics in sports in the years ahead. But Tiger Woods Tour Championship last Sunday will always rank phenomenal. SUN ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 28, 201836 SPORTS QUIZ 1.

Volunteers Sought For Tax AssistanceThe United Way of Lee, Hendry, Glades, and Okeechobee is seeking volunteer tax preparers, interpreters and greeters to help the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) sites during the 2018 tax season. An orientation and training class for new volunteers will be offered on Saturday, November 17 at Florida Gulf Coast University. For tax professionals or experienced volunteers, an online training and certification tool is available. With the support of trained, IRScertified volunteer tax preparers, VITA sites provide free tax preparation to individuals and families earning less than $66,000 per year throughout the five county area of Lee, Hendry, Glades, Okeechobee and Charlotte counties. Volunteers of all ages and levels of experience are welcome, though all volunteers need to be comfortable working with a computer. There is a special need for bilingual Spanish speakers. Flexible hours are available January through April. Volunteers will receive specialized IRS certified training including learning how to prepare basic tax returns, using online tax preparation software, and learning about tax deductions and earned income tax credits that benefit eligible taxpayers. In addition, experienced agents, certified financial planners and non-credentialed tax return preparers can earn continuing education credits when volunteering as a VITA tax preparer. For the past 11 years, VITA volunteers have made a real difference in the lives of people in our community, said Cliff Smith, president of United Way. Volunteers who come back year after year tell us the VITA program is very rewarding because they connect with members of our community and empower families to achieve economic success. Last year, 150 volunteers helped file nearly 5,000 federal tax returns, bringing over $6.7 million dollars in federal tax refunds back to the local community through the United Way VITA program. In addition, United Way VITA clients saved the cost of tax preparation by a commercial service which totaled over $1.2 million. Interested volunteers can register online at www.unitedwaylee.org/ become-vita-volunteer, contact Patrice Cunningham at patrice@unitedwaylee.org or call 433-7557. Drink Pink CampaignAn estimated 266,120 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed among women in 2018. Among men, another 2,550 new cases are expected, according to the American Cancer Society. The team at CONRIC PR & Marketing relates to this staggering statistic through family experiences spurring the launch of the inaugural Drink Pink campaign in honor of national breast cancer awareness month in October. The firm is challenging local restaurants to offer a signature Drink Pink beverage that will incite people to Cheers for Change all month long. Participating restaurants are encouraged to donate a minimum of 10 percent of revenue from their signature pink drink sales in October to a nonprofit breast cancer organization of their choice. CONRIC PR & Marketing has identified four nonprofit organizations in Southwest Florida that support breast cancer patients: Cancer Alliance of Naples, Partners for Breast Cancer Care, Bosom Buddies Breast Cancer Support and From Our Hearts. Breast cancer knows no boundaries, but early detection and treatment can be the key to a healthy prognosis. The campaign seeks to increase awareness of the disease and raise money for local organizations that offer services to support patients.

SUN deaRPharmacistSix Powerful Benefits Of Papaya Enzymeby Suzy Cohen, RPhIm sure youve heard of those delicious orange fruits called papayas. Papayas themselves have all kinds of health benefits. For one, they are extremely fiber-rich. Also, the antioxidant content is extraordinarily high and fantastic to help with the maintenance of healthy cholesterol levels and atherosclerosis (the build-up of plaque in the arteries). Lets focus on papain, the highly beneficial compound found in the leaves and fruit of the papaya. Papain is an enzyme which means it helps drive reactions in your body. For example, if you eat a hamburger, protease enzymes are secreted during digestion that help break down the meat, turning it into smaller protein molecules called amino acids. Enzymes that break down proteins are termed proteolytic enzymes. Papain is also a proteolytic enzyme and its commonly found in meat tenderizer. Here are five other powerful benefits of papaya and papain: Heal Your Skin and Wounds Papaya fruit and leaf can both be applied to minor burns and wounds to speed up the healing process. We use a lot of triple antibiotic ointment in the United States, however, where drugs are not heavily promoted or allowed, families use natural remedies. As an example, in Latin America, Hawaii and Tahiti, papain leaves are used commonly for burns. There are certain gels sold commercially. Address Sinus and Breathing Problems Papain can thin mucus, specifically by diluting sinus mucin, a glycoprotein found in mucus. In this way, papain could be great for helping you with chronic sinus infections. Reduce Bloating and Diarrhea In a case study, a male patient with gluten intolerance added papain once daily, every day, for one month (while eating a gluten-free diet) and experienced better digestion, as well as improved stools, dramatically less diarrhea and an obvious decrease in bloat. Improve Antioxidant Capabilities Papain contains compounds that make it a potent antioxidant, helping to protect your body from cellular damage caused by free radicals. Papain, in fact, is an antioxidant on par with strong antioxidant vitamins like vitamins C and E. Fight Cancer The specific action papain has on cancer cells is by dissolving the thick protein coating around the cancer cell called fibrin. Other studies suggest that papaya juice has anti-proliferative effects, which means it might slow metastasis. Finally, it can induce apoptosis that, essentially, makes cancer cells run and hide. Papaya is obviously loaded with medicinal benefits. I recommend it so long as youre not allergic to it, to its skin or to the pineapple enzyme called bromelain (theres a cross-sensitivity). Its easy to incorporate papaya and papain into your life. Supplements are widely available too. Supplementation might be a good idea if supported on acid-blocking drugs or PPI ulcer and reflux medications. If you sign up for my free newsletter at www.suzycohen. com, I will send you a longer version of this article, and explain more about this. Ill also share my recipes, a papaya tea recipe and more medical information. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: Can hypnosis help reduce anxiety?A: Living in this 21st century can be a barrage of anxiety and worry: violence, workplace stress, global issues, environmental stressors including natural disasters, crime, poverty, financial tension, aging and health issues, and so on. It seems as though daily we are faced with something that promotes anxiety and worry. Common causes of anxiety can be reactionary to situational stressors and/or a biochemical imbalance. With the culmination of any of the above, its no wonder at least 40 million Americans are diagnosed with chronic anxiety disorders. At least four million of those take medication to combat their anxiety. When we become anxious, we are out in the future anticipating something that has not yet happened. However, it stirs up intensified emotions that largely anticipate the thought of danger, rather real or imagined. Many of us often ask the question, What will happen if... ? rather than being present, right here, right now. It is in the present moment that we can experience the art of calm. The good news is that integrative approaches utilizing other options are available, one being hypnosis. What exactly is hypnosis? While definitions can vary, the American Psychological Association describes hypnosis as a cooperative interaction in which the participant responds to the suggestions of the hypnotist. Hypnosis is safe, relaxed, focused concentration. All hypnosis is selfhypnosis. When one is in a relaxed state, the subconscious mind which we operate from at least 90 percent of the time surfaces and has the ability to absorb, retain and accept post-hypnotic suggestions, which are positive statements for change to occur, namely anxiety reduction and elimination of fear. The hypnotherapist serves as a guide or facilitator to assist the subject to relax through the art of diaphragmatic breathing (belly breathing). As the hypnotherapist guides the subject through relaxation techniques, often a body scan with some guided imagery, the subject may begin to experience two different streams of activity conscious and subconscious whereby the flow may feel like the subject is drifting in and out of an altered state. Hypnotherapy is very individualized. Some subjects feel a heaviness, others a lightness or tingling. There is no right or wrong way to experience, its your way. Research indicates the more open one is to hypnosis, the tendency is a better response and outcome. The majority of subjects report a relaxed/calm feeling and, if their session is recorded, the more they listen to the recording, the more cumulative effect it will have for their desires to manifest. Its important to note that the hypnotherapist has absolutely no control over the subject. The subject is always in control, safe and protected. The hypnotherapist cannot perform actions against your will. As a holistic health clinician, I like to present anxiety as an opportunity to open yourself up to expansion of your soul that lies beneath your day-to-day worries. The calm you can feel from hypnosis can be an opening to your heart and soul, an expansion way beyond your outer layer of troubled thoughts occurring in your mind. Hypnosis can bring you back to your center, the core essence of who you are. When you begin to feel anxiety coming on, return to the breath and that begins your art of calm.
