We created Conservation Art Day 10 years ago to honor the winning artists with a day devoted especially to them, said Supervisory Refuge Ranger Toni Westland. Through the years, the event has grown into a family-oriented affair with hands-on activities and demonstrations. This year, we are adding a participatory chalk art demonstration in the parking lot, thanks to Cypress Lake High School. Part of the weekend-long Ding Darling Days, October 12 to 14, the event will also feature face painting, cartooning and plein-air artists along Wildlife Drive. Admission to Wildlife Drive is free all day, and Tarpon Bay Explorers, the refuges recreation concession, will be offering discounted tram, boat and kayak tours. The first 100 children to arrive to Conservation Art Day at 9 a.m. receive a reusable bag with art supplies and an opportunity to Ask the Artist a Question as wildlife artist Nancy Tome demonstrates in the Visitor & Education Center. Cartoonist Dave Horton will sketch individualized wildlife portraits starting at 11 a.m. for the first 50 guests. Select gifts will be 10 percent off in the Refuge Nature Store and visitors can greet the Blue Goose for chances at prizes.

But after discussing all of the ideas, the best option turned out to be an activity they had done to great success several times in the past. In the past, we have offered a scavenger hunt as an Octifest live auction item, and the winners have always loved it, said Sanibel Sea School Development continued on page 20 Getting ready for Sanibel Sea Schools inaugural Flip Flop Family Scavenger Hunt are, back from left, Emmett Horvath, Nicole Finnicum, Sam Lucas and Chrissy Basturk; front, Dani Lacy and Christina Gould photo by Jeff Lysiak BIG ARTS Presents Compelling Film Series On EthicsEven in the narrowest of matters, lies can be devastating, said Dr. Ronald M. Green, emeritus professor of religion at Dartmouth College and an expert on ethics. He will introduce as well as moderate the post-event discussions surrounding four films dealing with ethical dilemmas at BIG ARTS Film and Ethics Series. The first film, Denial, screens on Wednesday, October 17 at 12:30 p.m. at Island Cinema, located at 535 Tarpon Bay Road in Baileys Shopping Center. Dr. Green served from 1992-2011 as director of Dartmouths Institute for the Study of Applied and Professional Ethics. A summa cum laude graduate of Brown University, he received his PhD in religious ethics from Harvard University in 1973. In 1996 and 1997, Green was the founding director of the Office of Genome Ethics at the National Human Genome Research Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Denial is a film closely based on the story of Deborah Lipstadt, a university professor and writer who was sued for libel by historian David Irving, whom she calls a Holocaust denier in her 1993 book, Denying the Holocaust: The Growing Assault on Truth and Memory. One of the central questions of the film and the British trial it depicts is whether or not Irving knew the Holocaust happened, and if he did, was he deliberately spreading falsehoods, i.e., lying? If I tell you theres a thousand dollars in my bank account and I have half that, continued on page 30 Dr. Ronald M.Green photo provided Highlights from Celebrity Island Dinner pages 40 and 41

New Logo, Curriculum For Childrens CenterThe Childrens Education Center of the Islands (CECI) has a new logo, and some curriculum changes to engage young students. CECI has been evolving into a naturebased school that provides a well-rounded education for students. The preschool has transitioned to a place-based, emergent curriculum. Lessons are centered around the natural world. Students go outside to explore the five-acre campus, and learn about Sanibels flora a fauna. The children jump in puddles, which leads to a lesson on the water cycle. They collect palm berries, which transitions into a lesson on counting. Under the new curriculum, if a lesson is focused on the sea grape tree but the children hear a pileated woodpecker call and become focused on that call, instructors will integrate the bird within the lesson so the children can learn how they are connected. Visitors are invited to stop by any morning to see the changes to the preschool, located at 350 Casa Ybel Road. For more information, call 472-4538.

5 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 5, 2018JANE READER WEAVEROn Sunday, September 23, 2018, Jane Reader Weaver of Sanibel, Florida and Carlisle, Pennsylvania, devoted mother and grandmother, died peacefully, surrounded by her family. Jane was born and raised in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, the place she always considered her true home. An English major at Dickinson College, she was curious, fearless and a natural trailblazer. Her career was wide-ranging. In the 1970s, Jane was the creator and host of the local PBS show Miss, Mrs. Ms. which showcased women leaders in the community. Later, she was the owner and chief executive of Resort Salon Services on Captiva Island. Perhaps she was best known for her long and highly successful career in real estate, which she began in Pennsylvania and continued on her beloved Sanibel and Captiva islands. In all her endeavors, she was the consummate people-person and a creative, skillful deal-maker. Jane lived an extraordinary life that touched the hearts and souls of so many. All who knew her felt the depths of her warmth and compassion, and delighted in her exuberance and that resounding laugh. Always a youthful and independent spirit, she was a model of strength, resilience and living life to its very fullest. Her generosity was limitless. Nothing was more important to Jane than her family. Her greatest joy was spending time with her three daughters and two grandsons. The family matriarch, she led with wisdom, faith, optimism and an epic sense of humor. There was nothing that couldnt be made right by a conversation with Jane. Jane is survived by her daughters, Jane W. McKenna, Elizabeth Brenneman and Julie McKean Weaver, her son-in-law, Sean M. McKenna, and her grandsons and granddaughter-inlaw, Patrick T., Colin M. and Michelle McKenna. She will forever be missed. and tho We are not now that strength which in old days Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are, One equal temper of heroic hearts, Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield. Alfred Lord Tennyson, from Ulysses The family will be receiving friends from 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, November 3 in Hoffman Funeral Home and Crematory, 2020 W. Trindle Road, Carlisle, PA 17013.

Tickets are $30 in advance, $35 at the door and $10 for children ages 13 to 18; children 12 and under are admitted at no charge. The preschool strongly recommends that people buy tickets in advance so they can get an accurate head count. Sponsorships are available and include tickets to the roast and display in promotional materials. Proceeds from the event will help fund student scholarships as well as capital improvements to the facility. The preschool, which opened in 1974, is a nonprofit parent co-op which serves families who live or work on Sanibel and Captiva. It is open to children ages 12 months to 5 years. To register your children for preschool, buy event tickets, become a sponsor or donate items to the silent auction, call Cindy DeCosta at 472-4538.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 5, 20186 Students Rock, Ride And Rejoice At UniversalSanibel Community Church H2O Youth Ministry high school students and leaders experienced two nights of powerful music from todays most popular Christian artists at Rock the Universe at Universal Studios in Orlando recently. Throughout the weekend, the students, along with thousands of other teens from around the country, praised God in live concerts, plus experienced the attractions at Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios. Rock the Universe celebrated its 20th year with some of todays top artists in Christian music, such as Jesus Culture, TobyMac, Casting Crowns and Lauren Daigle. The teens were electrified as they lifted their hands and let their hearts soar, while singing along with amazing artists and worshipping God right alongside their peers. One of the leaders said, What a refreshing sight to see thousands of youth on a Friday and Saturday night worshipping with Brandon Heath, For King and Country and Andy Mineo. During the day, the group experienced the thrilling rides and attractions. Racing in the city streets of New York City on the Jimmy Fallon Ride, zooming down the Hulk and Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit roller coaster; hiding from hungry dinosaurs on Jurassic Park Adventure; and facing the most colossal ape ever to walk the earth on Skull Island were among the groups favorites. The teens hastened their walk to the World of Harry Potter for the sought after treat: Butter Beer. One youth leader said, It was an incredible, rejuvenating and inspiring event. The atmosphere of Christian groups from all over coming together, and the opportunity to see and hear the Christian performers that affect our daily lives with their praise and worship music was amazing. Students expressed how blessed they were to be a part of the Rock the Universe experience, adding that it was an unforgettable weekend of faith and fun. H2O Student Ministries is a youth ministry 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). For more information, contact Pastor Kevin Schafer at Kevin@ sanibelchurch.com or call 472-2684.

Sanibel & Captiva that have become a local tradition. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States. Approximately one in eight U.S. women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. In 2018, an estimated 266,120 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 63,960 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer. When breast cancer is detected early, and is in the localized stage, the five-year relative survival rate is 100 percent. Every Saturday this month, Lets Pink Out! organizers and volunteers will be bagging groceries for tips at Baileys General Store, located at 2477 Periwinkle Way. All are invited to visit the business between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on October 6, 13, 20 and 27. Volunteer baggers will receive Pink Out T-shirts, which are also being offered for sale by donation. Get your pink on and come out and support this great event. said Mary Bondurant, a Sanibel resident, realtor, breast cancer survivor and founder of the Pink Out gatherings. On Saturday, October 20, the Radiology Regional Centers Mobile Mammo Coach will return to Sanibel Fire & Rescue District Station #1, located at 2351 Palm Ridge Road. Appointments for breast cancer screening are available between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. The state of the art mobile medical vehicle staffed by members of Radiology Regional Center will be offering on site 3D digital mammogram screenings. While most medical insurance companies will cover the expense of the examination, all women who are uninsured will have the cost covered by Lets Pink Out. The 7th annual Lets Pink Out! Celebration for Life luncheon will be held on Thursday, October 25 at Sanibel Fire & Rescue District Station #1 from 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. The picnic-style celebration with food and refreshments provided by Cips Place will take place inside the facility. The Pink Out luncheon is open to the entire community, whether youre a breast cancer survivor or someone whose life has been touched by cancer, added Bondurant. If youre a survivor, your lunch is free; everyone else may make a donation. Local businesses are asked to donate a raffle item. Non-perishable food items, which are being donated to FISH of SanCap, will also be accepted. To become a sponsor or make a raffle item donation, call Bondurant at 839-3633.

City Attorney John Agnew informed members of the council that applicants Laura DeBruce and Jeffrey Blackman, owners of Sanibel Carts, LLC, had filed an appeal to the commissions May 22 decision to deny their application based upon it being in conflict with the objectives of the Sanibel Plan, conditions set forth in the Land Development Code, and concerns over safety. The couple had planned on an inventory of seven street-legal, solar/ electric vehicles (five of them fourpassenger vehicles, with the other two six-passenger vehicles) that would be rented out of Suite 15 of the Palm Ridge Place Shopping Center. The city council is neither deciding nor ruling on whether the city council would approve or deny the application, but rather whether the planning commission has properly interpreted and applied the provisions of the Land Development Code based upon the application and evidence presented to the planning commission, Agnews September 19 letter to council reads, in part. Both DeBruce and Blackman presented their case to members of the council, arguing that the planning commissions findings in the case were a misinterpretation of the Sanibel Plan. The issue that low-speed vehicles might be a safety hazard can be dismissed since they are allowed by Florida statute in municipalities that permit speeds of 35 mph or less. These vehicles are already very popular and in use on the islands, said DeBruce, who contested why another business on Sanibel is allowed to rent up to 60 motor scooters but her business, with seven low-speed carts, wouldnt be permitted. There is no evidence that renting low-speed vehicles would contribute to increased traffic on Sanibel, added Blackman, who argued that their carts dont take up as much space on the road, arent as noisy and dont contribute as much pollution as standard automobiles. Our goal is to decrease ridership on the island, not increase it. The couple also stated that after four months of working with the citys planning department staff, including dozens of emails and several meetings, they were given no indication that their application would be recommended for denial until the Friday prior to the planning commission meeting during which it was denied. Keith Williams, the citys community services director, delivered a presentation which explained that the planning commissions decision was made, in part, to their interpretation of the Land Development Code dealing with transportation goals, objectives and policies for auto ridership and reduction. He also noted the commissions concerns over the inter-maneuverability of the carts continued on page 45

Plant SmartFourpetal St. Johns-Wortby Gerri ReavesFourpetal St. Johns-wort ( Hypericum tetrapetalum ) is a short-lived perennial of the mangosteen family. Native to only Florida and Georgia in the U.S., it is one of many St. Johns-worts native to the state. In the wild, its typically found in moist flatwoods, hammocks, prairies and along ponds. The common name was given to the flower by early Christians, who deemed it a symbol of St. John the Baptist because it usually blooms around St. Johns Day (or Feast of St. John) on June 24. It forms erect single stems of up to three feet tall or multiple prostrate spreading stems. The latter form makes it useful as a groundcover. Pairs of blue-green ovate leaves clasp the stems. The color inspires another common name, blueleaf St. Johns-wort. Inexplicably, its also called heartleaved St. Peters-wort. The four bright yellow petals form an X or cross, thus the term tetrapetalum. Flowers are about an inch across, have many yellow stamens and appear singly at the end of reddish stems. Underneath the flower are two larger outer sepals and two smaller inner ones. Flowers bloom most of the year, spring to late autumn. The seed capsule is inconspicuous. This species is recommended for wet wildflower gardens. It prefers full sun to light shade and requires essentially no maintenance if planted in the right spot. It can grow in nutrient-poor soil but needs some organic content. It is not salt tolerant. Sources: Everglades Wildflowers by Roger L.

Our Waters Are Healingby Capt. Matt MitchellAs each week passes our local waters continue to rebound and gradually return to back normal. Clean, clear water is getting easier to find, and all types of sea life can be spotted. Turtles, dolphins and manatees are returning to our waters which is great to see. The resilience of our waters is amazing with bait and feeding birds scattered almost the complete length of the sound once again. We still have areas from Lighthouse Point to the north end of Fort Myers Beach and Boca Grande that are experiencing effects of red tide. Generally though, the red tide levels in our region continue to drop. While running offshore 25 miles due west of Redfish Pass this week, we saw lots of baitfish schools starting out in 30 feet of water and did not see a single floating dead fish. This past week, the improvement to our waters is easy to see and is just remarkable. Rocky Channel in the middle sound can be one of my favorite places to shark fish. During lower phases of the tide, all of the flats around it get really shallow and these sharks drop off into the channel by the hundreds. Most varieties of shark species can be caught while fishing in this area that is basically a big fish highway. I like to set up on the anchor in the deeper, fast-moving water in this natural channel and soak large pieces of fresh cut mullet on a large cut bait circle hook. Pulling on these hard fighting sharks is easy fishing that anyone can do. While out live bait fishing, its been a good idea to stay away from the passes, especially Blind Pass and Boca Grande during the incoming tide as it only takes one small area of red tide to push in and all your bait is dead. These places have still been experiencing fish kills during the big high incoming tide. Most of my live bait fishing this week was on the eastern side of the sound. Our go-to species continues to be large, healthy mangrove snapper. These snapper can be found just about anywhere, but finding some submerged structure can really pay off with larger fish. This past week while fishing a favorite concrete rubble pile in the northern sound, I found another pile of sunken toilets in seven feet of clear water that I must have passed over hundreds of times and never knew it was there. This toilet reef held snapper up to 16 inches. It was lots of fun to catch gag grouper up to 20 inches. After casting free-lined shiners, this place went off with fish exploding on the surface. Catch-and-release snook fishing has remained very consistent although I have not found any really large groups of fish. When pulling into a favorite mangrove shoreline or oyster bar, you can catch a handful of fish then the bite just stops. Keep your eyes open for schools of redfish while working these same areas. I have heard a few reports of schooling redfish around the tip of Bokeelia and around Captiva Rocks although Im yet to find them myself. FWC has decided to keep both snook and redfish closed for harvest until at least May 10 in response to the fish kills caused by red tide. The effected area thats closed runs south from Tampa to Naples. This closure is a good thing for our fishery and ruling on the side of caution after such a massive red tide event can only help. There are plenty of other species in the sound to eat other than the snook and redfish, which are two of our premier species and need some protection. Capt. Matt Mitchell has been fishing local waters since he moved to Sanibel in 1980. He now lives in St. James City and works as a back country fishing guide.

Shell Of The WeekThe Slender Eulimaby Jos H. Leal, PhD, BaileyMatthews National Shell Museum Science Director and CuratorThe Slender Eulima, Melanella hypsela (Verril & Bush, 1900) is one of the locally found species of parasitic snails in the family Eulimidae, which usually live embedded in the bodies of sea cucumbers, sand dollars, sea stars and other echinoderms. Its shell may reach 8 mm (about 0.3 inch), and it is delicate, straight-sided, with a minute protoconch. As with many members of the Eulimidae, shells of live snails (or fresh-dead) are translucent or tranparent, becoming opaque after the snail dies. The tentacles of Slender Eulimas each have a red band, which is interrupted around the eye. The picture of the live Slender Eulima was taken by the late Smithsonian photographer Chip Clark in the Bahamas during the 1999 Shell Museum/Smithsonian Deep-sea Expedition.

Farmers Market Helps NeighborsThe Sanibel Island Farmers Market returns to the city hall area on Sunday, October 7. FISH of SanCap will again partner with Local Roots LLC owners Betsy Ventura and Jean Baer, co-managers of the Sanibel Island Farmers Market, to supply foood for the food pantry At the suggestion of Ventura and Baer, vendors pack boxes of unsold fruits, vegetables and other food offerings for the FISH Food Pantry at the end of every market Sunday. FISH volunteers pick up, sort and unload these donations on Sunday afternoon at the FISH Food Pantry. Food pantry participants receive the fruits, vegetables, breads, cheeses and other items from market vendors. We are looking forward to assisting in loading up the FISH pantry, said Ventura. These have been tough days for our community, and we are here to work together with FISH. Anything we can do to help, please reach out. Issac and the entire Gallego family will be joining us again this season, and were all excited to help out. FISH and our clients greatly appreciate the generosity of the (Sanibel Island) Farmers Market. We cannot thank Betsy and Jean enough for encouraging the vendors to supply healthy choices for our clients. Their continued support and eagerness to find fresh ways to support FISH is an integral part of the success of our food pantry, said Maggi Feiner, FISH president and CEO. If you dont have access to or cannot afford healthy food, you can develop health issues, she said. This partnership gives people the dignity and choice of what they enjoy eating while focusing on food that can really nurture the body and brain and help people struggling with food to eat healthier. Its been particularly tough this summer for our food pantry, as we have seen so many new households apply due to the red tide crisis. Weve had a really hard time keeping our shelves stocked. The addition of fresh products and other donations from the farmers market will really help out, said Maria Espinoza, walk-in center manager. Kudos to our volunteer teams, many of which include island youth earning community service hours, who pick up from the market and organize our food pantry on Sunday afternoons. We could not provide these wonderful healthy foods to our community without their help. The FISH Food Pantry is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 3:45 p.m., located at 2430 Periwinkle Way. Those wishing to use the food pantry must reside in Lee County and complete an intake form annually. For more information, visit www. fishofsancap.org or call 472-4775.

The evening will include cocktails, dinner, live and silent auctions, a 50/50 raffle, and a few surprises all in support of local conservation initiatives. We held our inaugural event in the spring, and the funds raised have allowed us to make significant progress on a few exciting island campaigns, said event coordinator Sam Lucas. Going forward, we have decided to move the event to the fall, so if you missed it earlier this year, or just want to join us for a second round of fun for a good cause, this is the perfect opportunity to participate. Coastal Keepers goal is to increase awareness of the impacts that humans have on beaches, water quality and marine habitats in our region, and to help citizens become more effective stewards of the ocean. Through a series of business and community partnerships, the organization successfully encouraged Sanibel City Council members to unanimously pass an ordinance on the sale and distribution of disposable plastic straws in September. Straws are a common litter item found on the beaches that can have lasting negative impacts on waters and wildlife. The ongoing Bring Your Own Bag (BYOB) campaign is one more example of Coastal Keepers work to build a more environmentally friendly Sanibel. The BYOB campaign helps conserve oceans and beaches by reducing the number of single-use plastic bags handed out in the area each year. With help from local businesses and organizations, we distribute free reusable canvas bags at events and stores throughout the island. So far, we have distributed more than 15,000 bags, said Lucas. The group will announce some of its additional plans for the future at the event. Tickets to The Launch are $100 per person, including dinner and drinks. For more and reservations, contact Coastal Keepers at 472-8585 or visit www. sancapcoastalkeepers.org/the-launch. Coastal Keepers, formerly the Sanibel-Captiva Chapter of START, creates and implements local conservation initiatives that promote and improve the future of marine resources, and coastal heritage. Visit www.sancapcoastalkeepers.org. image provided Winter Camp At Sea Schoolsubmitted by Leah BierySanibel Sea Schools 2018 Winter Camp programs will be all about the sun and the moon, and how closely they are tied to the ocean and its creatures. This pair of weeklong camps is planned to coincide with winter break, and the schedule will offer a combination of Sanibel Sea School holiday traditions, exciting science, arts and crafts, and outdoor activities. During Powered by the Moon Week, participants will explore gravity and tides, learn about how the lunar cycle affects various ocean inhabitants and go moon gazing together. Powered by the Sun Week will be all about the suns energy and how it supports life on our planet. Participants will dive into photosynthesis, talk about some sunbathing marine species and make solar smores. And thats just a start there are many more surprises planned. Of course, it wouldnt be Winter Camp without a few Sanibel Sea School traditions, so there will also be hot chocolate, ocean caroling and the annual Give Your Worries to the Sea ceremony. Camps are open to ages 6 to 13, and a Counselor In Training program will also be offered for teens ages 13 to 18 to practice their leadership skills.

CROW Case Of The Week: Barn Swallow by Bob PetcherA barn swallow ( Hirundo rustica) is a small, sparrow-sized bird that has a shiny and steely cobalt-blue color on its back, wings and tail to contrast its orange-brown underparts. The barn swallow can mostly be found in rural areas and is quite adaptable, feeding in open habitats from fields, parks and meadows to marsh lands, fresh water and coastal waters. The insect-eaters are also adaptable in their foraging abilities as they can feed on different flies and bugs near ground surfaces or hundreds of feet above sea level. When it comes to nesting, they prefer human-made structures, like barns, and build resting spots in eaves, rafters, cross beams or within undersides of bridges, wharfs and other water structures. In fact, people can benefit from these swallows if they encourage these colorful, insect-eating birds to nest inside their sheds, barns or excess structures by leaving a door open. At CROW, an adult barn swallow was admitted from Dunbar Middle School in Fort Myers after it was reported to have struck a window. Upon intake exam, veterinarians found the bird was unable to stand due to hind limb paresis, but was bright and alert on the front end. The patient was propped up for comfort reasons. If a patient is unable to stand, it is either propped up in a makeshift nest made out of a folded towel so it is resting comfortably, or larger birds are sometimes placed in a sling for a few hours each day to assist with standing, explained Dr. Robin Bast, CROW staff veterinarian. Further examination showed the patient had intact motor ability of the legs, but the left limb was weaker. Without x-rays, CROW medical officials determined there were no fractures palpated. This species of bird is so tiny that it is hard to get adequate detail on radiographs to rule out spinal lesions, said Dr. Bast. However, based on the birds clinical signs it was still able to move its legs but was too weak to stand on them it can be assumed there was not a complete severance of the spinal cord. The clinical signs were likely related to compression of the spinal cord due to inflammation and swelling from the trauma. The patient was found to have an increased breathing rate after being handled for a short time. It was given pain medication and placed in an oxygen chamber. Several things can cause an increased rate of breathing bleeding into the lungs/air sacs secondary to the trauma is most likely in this case, said Dr. Bast. Other causes include stress this species can start open-mouth breathing even if handled for brief periods of time or less likely in this case, infection in the respiratory system. CROWs treatment plan included neurological checks of the patients hind limbs and hourly feeds by the rehabilitation staff. After approximately one week at the clinic, the barn swallow did not show signs of improvement. Unfortunately, the birds neurologic condition declined despite supportive care and, due to its grave prognosis for recovery, it was elected to humanely euthanize the patient, added Dr. Bast.

While this is significant on its own, there are many other ways for us to care for the planet as paddlers. This week, we want to share a few ideas for you to consider. First, always leave your surroundings cleaner than when you arrived. Planning ahead can help you avoid using disposable containers for drinks and food. Go reusable whenever possible. If you must bring items that produce trash, be sure to pack it out with you for proper disposal. If you are fishing, never leave monofilament line or other fishing gear in the environment. We are advocates of the Take Five approach always set aside five minutes during your paddle to clean up any waste you see. You might also put some thought into your transportation choices when traveling to and from your paddling location. Carpooling with friends is a great way to reduce your carbon emissions. While you are out paddling, be aware of your surroundings and be sure not to cause damage. Even kayaks and paddleboards can tear seagrass or scrape coral reefs. Move through the water with caution and care for what is in your path. Avoid using chemical insect repellants and sunscreens. The ingredients can have long-term consequences for fragile ocean ecosystems. Instead, cover up with clothing or choose natural alternatives. We like eucalyptus-based bug sprays, and sunscreens with non-nano zinc oxide are safest for coral reefs. Finally, if youre in the market for a new board or boat, do your own research or ask your local paddle sports shop about any eco-friendly options that are available. More and more companies are using recycled or biodegradable materials and less harmful manufacturing chemicals. One company, Starboard, offers paddle attachments for picking up trash. There are a number of great options at similar price points to conventional boards. Happy (green) paddling! Ocean Tribe Paddlers is a club that helps the Southwest Florida paddling community better explore, enjoy and understand the ocean.

The school year started off with a strong recruitment effort, topping membership at 34 Cub Scouts in Pack 1740 and nine Boy Scouts in Troop 1740. This year is full of camp-outs and events planned for every scout at every age level, from 5 to 16 years old, including camping excursions to Daytona Speedway and Cayo Costa State Park. Most recently, much of the Pack toured the local Sanibel Fire & Rescue District Station #1, with many thanks to Training Officer Tim Barrett. Additionally, our oldest Cub Scouts, Arrow of Light, were visited by Capt. Rob McKay of Captiva Water Sports, based out of Tween Waters Inn, Captiva. McKay taught the boys knot-tying, an important foundation skill for any Cub or Boy Scout. For more information about Sanibel Scouts, contact Cub Scout Pack 1740 Committee Chair Kara Stone at 2234625 or Boy Scout Troop Committee Chair Kim Kouril at 233-4180.

The plant produces fruits that are commonly used as vegetables. There are three different classifications of cucumber: slicing, pickling and seedless, with 40 different varieties for each classification. The common names for these cucumbers are pepino, English, gherkin and kukamba. The cucumber is native to India and has been cultivated in Asia for over 3,000 years. Cucumbers were not only used in culinary purposes, but also widely used as medicinal remedies. They were used to treat everything from infertility, bad eyesight, scorpion bites and as beauty treatments. The ancient Greeks and Romans were very fond of cucumbers and introduced them to Europe around the 8th and 9th centuries. The Roman Emperor Tiberius ate cucumbers every day of the year. During summer, special gardens were tended just for the kings cucumbers and in the winter, cucumbers were grown on moveable bed frames that were moved to be exposed to the sun or illuminated with mirror-stones in primitive greenhouses. Columbus brought cucumbers to Haiti in the late 1400s and the Spanish explorer Desoto introduced cucumbers to Florida and North America around the mid-16th century. Cucumbers contain vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B3, vitamin B5, vitamin B6, folic acid, vitamin C, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and zinc. Here is a simple recipe to try. Cucumber and Cantaloupe Salad Serves 4 Dressing cup olive oil cup white wine vinegar 1 tsp. coriander 1 tsp. salt tsp. black pepper1/8 tsp. cardamom Ingredients cantaloupe (rind and seeds removed, cut into 1-inch pieces) 1 English cucumber (sliced inch thick) jalapeno pepper (seeded and sliced thin) cup roasted pumpkin seeds (pepitas) cup cilantro (chopped) cup mint (chopped) Method Whisk oil, vinegar, coriander, salt, pepper and cardamom in a large bowl. Add the cantaloupe, cucumber and jalapeno pepper. Let sit for 15 minutes. To serve, add pumpkin seeds, cilantro and mint to salad and toss gently to combine.

Free Reusable Bags To Be DistributedOn Saturday, October 13, Coastal Keepers will hold an event at Baileys General Store to reduce the use of disposable plastic bags on the islands and educate locals and visitors about the harm plastic bags cause to the environment. Beginning at noon, Coastal Keepers and Baileys General Store will partner to distribute reusable, washable canvas bags for free while supplies last. Over 100 billion disposable plastic bags are used annually in the United States, making them one of the most common trash items collected on beaches worldwide. Plastic bags have a short usage time and are rarely recyclable, taking 1,000 years or more to decompose. They pose a threat to wildlife as countless animals become entangled or mistake them for food each year. The solution to this problem is simple: bring your own bags (BYOB) when you shop, eliminating the need for disposable plastic bags. Additional BYOB events are being planned for later this year. Coastal Keepers, formerly the Sanibel-Captiva Chapter of START, operates as an independent branch of Sanibel Sea School to create and implement conservation initiatives that promote and improve the future of marine resources and coastal heritage. For more information, contact coastalkeepers@sanibelseaschool.org. From page 1Scavenger HuntDirector Chrissy Basturk. Doc (Bruce Neill) wanted an event that the whole family could participate in. And something with a little healthy competition is always fun. On Saturday, November 3, the inaugural Flip Flop Family Scavenger Hunt will kick-off beginning at 10 a.m. at Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ, located at 2050 Periwinkle Way. At check-in, each scavenger hunt team comprised of up to eight individuals per team will be given a book of clues and challenges, each worth a set amount of points. We want to allow children to participate in something that is fun, but at the same time raises money to serve others, explained Neill. Most fundraisers exclude children, but we want kids to be involved and help other kids and families while they have fun and learn about our island. Throughout the hunt, participants 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 game. Along the way, teams will visit a number of Sanibel locations, where they may be asked to take a photograph at a location to prove they completed the challenge or bring back a specific shell or artifact. According to Basturk, clues in previous Sea School-hosted scavenger hunts have required players to visit restaurants, pose for photos with island celebrities, or figure out where to find a certain colorful bird. We want to help people discover their island in subtle ways. For example, Baileys General Store smokes bones for dogs. We asked (participants) to take a picture of a smoked dog bone, but didnt tell them where to find it, said Neill. Many of the clues are things we see every day, but have quit noticing, or never did. But the first person who arrives back at the church wont necessarily win the hunt, added Basturk, who noted that an obstacle course activity for all ages will be placed in the middle of the hunt. Participants will have to solve one final puzzle at the finish line. Following the conclusion of the hunt, participants will be invited to attend a beach bonfire starting at 6 p.m. at Lighthouse Beach in celebration of ocean love. People attending can bring their own refreshments, with the Sanibel Sea School providing all the fixings to make smores. Cost to participate is $25 per person, with a maximum of eight players per team. Participants must provide their own transportation. Tickets may be purchased online at www.sanibelseaschool. org/flipflopfundraiser or by calling 472-8585. All proceeds will support the nonprofits scholarship fund, which provides meaningful ocean experiences to thousands of children in the region each year. Reusable canvas bag photo provided

21 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 5, 2018 Solve Science Mysteries At After School Programsubmitted by Leah BieryBeginning October 9, Sanibel Sea School will offer a series of after school science programs with a mystery theme for students ages 6 to 13. Each weeks session will be centered on a fictional crime and a notable scientist such as Archimedes, Sir Isaac Newton or Blaise Pascal. Participants will apply scientific principles in exciting, hands-on ways to solve the crime before the end of the day. Because of the red tide, we had to re-think some of our water based after school activities like surfing and cast netting this year, said the organizations Director of Education Shannon Stainken. Our team realized that there are so many interesting experiments related to things like buoyancy, motion, pressure and force. We thought it would be so fun to incorporate all of this into a series of after school mysteries sort of like a crime solving club. Stainken also explained that all of the planned activities will give students a solid foundation for future scientific discovery, both inside and outside the classroom. Participants will build rockets, make catapults and cranes, get creative to make heavy objects float and so much more. Understanding why the things around us work the way they do, along with developing an appreciation for investigation and experimentation, can give kids a leg up when it comes to succeeding in school, Stainken said. We also want to encourage our students to stay curious about the world and its many mysteries for a lifetime. Sanibel Sea Schools After School sessions are from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Tuesdays, October 9, 16, 23 and 30, and November 6 and 13. The cost is $20 per student per session.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 5, 201826 SUN Book ReviewThe Secret Of Keystone Cityby Di SaggauSanibel author William Hallstead has written many novels and his latest, The Secret of Keystone City, again features his memorable character, Rod Montgomery. The book begins with a punch. Gary Samuels, a Vietnam veteran is working for the construction company in charge of building the new city of Keystone in Northeastern Pennsylvania. When he climbs into the Caterpillar D-8 to tear down some cottages, everything locks down, and he is thrown into the lake, still inside the cab. He drowns and this is only one of the deaths that end up having Rod Montgomery hired as a private detective, for Sturdevant Construction. Using an assumed name, Rod poses as an historian for the project, hoping to track down who is sabotaging the building of Keystone City. There are lots of interesting characters including Ivan Sikorski, who refuses to sell his place. His home has been in the family for years and, when Rod pays him a visit, hes surprised to find its an historical stunner of a building. In fact, Ivan plans to have it designated as an historical site so he wont have to move. Hes soon scratched from the list of suspects. Soon, other sinister events take place, including the kidnapping of Max Sturdervant, head of the construction company, who ends up in a cellar. When he realizes its stocked with two gallons of water, two loaves of bread and jars of peanut butter and jelly, he fears hell be there for some time. The criminals are becoming more dangerous and more desperate. Rod has his work cut out for him. It doesnt take long for him to figure out who wants the project shelved, but why takes a little longer. Hallstead knows what hes writing about. He said, I had a close look into new city construction during several years as a highway designer for the Baltimore engineering firm building the new city of Columbia, Maryland. However he said, the novels sabotage campaign is fictional. The Secret of Keystone City is a fascinating tale of questionable car crashes, unexplained construction accidents and deaths. The more pressure the perpetrators experience, the more sinister their crimes. Rod Montgomery is the one to solve the case and make sure the bad guys get their just reward. Hell entertain and amuse you along the way. School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My only child started kindergarten in August. Im feeling less connected and involved to her new school than I was to her daycare. What do you suggest that I do so I can be more involved in her school? Martina M, Fort Myers Beach Martina, Parent involvement with both your child and the school is one of the most important things you can do to help your child be successful. Sometimes it is difficult to make that connection with the school given a busy work schedule or if your own school experience was not a good one. However this is an extremely important relationship that is worth developing. According to research reported by the National Association of School Psychologists, when families are involved in education, there are very positive benefits for students, teachers and families. Students display better attitudes toward school and learning, higher achievement and test scores, improved behavior, increased homework completion, greater participation in academic activities and improved school attendance. At home, parents can make sure that they: Monitor homework completion talk with your children about their assignments, understand what they are studying and review their progress Participate in leisure reading with your children at all ages its fun to read the same books as your children and then discuss them Communicate often with your children about academic and behavioral expectations, give them constructive praise and support Here are a few ways for parents to be active at school: Participate at school as volunteers and committee members Participate in school functions, athletics and other extracurricular activities Regular communication with the teacher(s) about your childs progress Participation in adult educational opportunities offered by the school Active involvement in school decisions as presented by the school or board of education Many teachers have special activities designed for parent volunteers. Make sure to ask your childs teachers what would be helpful. Very often the schools parent association will have projects and committees where you can volunteer. While it may be easier to join a parent group or volunteer when your child is in elementary school, it is equally important to stay involved while your child is in high school. Volunteering with other parents during the high school years can help parents stay connected to each other in an informal parent network, which is always helpful. These are just a few suggestions on how to become and stay involved in your childs educational journey. There are many more ways to be involved; the key factor is that you are involved. Shelley Greggs is adjunct faculty at Florida SouthWestern State College, where she teaches psychology and education courses. She is also a nationally certified school psychologist and consultant for School Consultation Services, a private educational consulting company.

For more than a decade, the library, partnering with the Sanibel Public Library Foundation, has connected local readers to award-winning authors by bringing in high caliber writers for an intimate evening, followed by a Champagne reception. Past guests included Joyce Carol Oates, Sue Monk Kidd, Jodi Picoult, Clive Cussler, Lee Child, Dennis Lehane, Amor Towles, Erik Larson and Margaret Atwood. Were excited to show off the beautiful newly-reimagined space as we wrap up on the renovation project. The area where we will stage the Author Series is modular, and was designed to easily convert from book shelves to a place to accommodate an audience, said Library Executive Director Margaret Mohundro. Patrons should have better line-of-sight during the author evenings, as well as improved sound quality, and better traffic flow during the receptions. This seasons Author Series begins with Hampton Sides, The New York Times bestselling author of Ghost Soldier and Blood and Thunder. Sides will speak at the library at 7 p.m. on Thursday, January 31. Online ticket requests begin at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, January 2 at www.sanlib.org. Sides is best known for his gripping non-fiction adventure stories set in wartime or depicting expeditions of discovery. His most recent book, In the Kingdom of Ice, recounts the heroic polar voyage of the USS Jeannette during the Gilded Age. His next book, On Desperate Ground: The Marines at The Reservoir, the Korean Wars Greatest Battle, chronicles the Battle of Chosen Reservoir, a watershed moment of the war. On Desperate Ground will hit bookshelves this fall. Hampton is editor-at-large for Outside and a frequent contributor to National Geographic. His 2010 book, Hellhound On His Trail is about the murder of Martin Luther King Jr. and the international manhunt for assassin James Earl Ray. The book was the basis for the PBS American Experience documentary, Roads to Memphis. Ghost Soldiers, a bestselling World War II narrative, which has been translated into a dozen foreign languages, was the basis for the 2005 film, The Great Raid. His Blood and Thunder, about the life and times of controversial frontiersman Kit Carson, is currently under development for the screen. The next speaker in the series is Lily King. Her first novel, The Pleasing Hour won the Barnes and Noble Discover Award, and was a New York Times Notable Book. Her second, The English Teacher, was a Publishers Weekly Top continued on page 36 Hampton Sides photo by Sergio Salvador Lily King photo by Winky Lewis Lisa Scottoline photo by April Narby27 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 5, 2018 AIRPORT & LOCAL SERVICEwww.IslandTaxi.com ride@islandtaxi.com 239-472-4888 More Than a Ride!

Follow on Facebook to get updates on upcoming events at www.facebook.com/ YPASC. image provided From page 1Film SeriesGreen said, Is it a lie? Not if I think I have a thousand dollars. Its a question with high relevance to today, Green noted. Journalists and citizens alike have grappled with the definition of a lie in relation to statements made by the current political administration. The alleged liar must know he or she is lying to truly be a liar. The importance of a court of law and existing evidence in ethical questions is clear in Denial, starring Rachel Weisz as Lipstadt and Timothy Spall as Irving, because while interpretation of fact may be mutable, fact itself is not. Alternative facts do not exist, Green said. One of the most interesting things about the film is that now were in a period where people weave narratives, and they go on forever (with the advent of the Internet), he said. This case was a watershed moment because this proliferating culture of denial was spreading. Lipstadts legal team took on the responsibility of trying to stop the growth of those lies. Green, who lives part time on Sanibel, chose the four films in the BIG ARTS series. It wasnt easy, he said. Almost every single film is something about morality and ethics. But very few films present genuine moral questions that we can actually debate most merely exhibit goodness and evil. Following Denial, three other films feature central ethical questions. All films will be shown at 12:30 p.m. October 24 Incendies: Are there limits to maternal love? October 31 Anthropoid: When resistance is absolutely futile and destructive, is it worth doing? November 7 Passengers: Is it ever morally permissible for someone to do something otherwise wrong when that persons own vital interests are at stake? Nearly all films involve ethics because they deal with human beings, and ethics is about the human condition. The foundation for answering all these questions, Green said, is the golden rule. Present in Christianity, Confucianism, Judaism, its universal. Ethics is the basic golden rule and then we build up codes to formalize it, he said. Additional information about ethical questions causes us to change our rules about them. For example, Green said it took higher education a while to fully consider the implications of a conflict of interest, as in the assumption that professors shouldnt date graduate students. And then people want those things written down. And at the top of all of this is the law, which is ethics crystalized to punishable offenses. And while our understanding of ethical questions may change, people will always grapple with them and always have. Around cave fires we discussed whether everybody got a fair share of bison, Green said. The ethics series promises to be one of the most topical at BIG ARTS this season, and we are thrilled to have such a distinguished presenter in Dr. Green, said Lee Ellen Harder, BIG ARTS executive director. image provided

According to event organizers, Baileyfest will feature the traditional crowning of the king and queen, live entertainment, inflatable slides and bounce houses, games, raffles and giveaways, face-painting, pony rides, food and refreshments, information booths from local service organizations plus plenty of other surprises. As always, Baileyfest is free to attend and open to the public. Along with several of the previous Baileyfest favorites, a number of new musical acts will be performing this year. They include Conchalele Bob & The Seagles, fronted by Bob MacPhail, who will play The Star Spangled Banner on his handmade and uniquely shaped four-stringed instrument. His band includes Francis Chilcoat (lead guitar and vocals), Billie Atkins (rhythm guitar and vocals), Chip Futch (guitar and vocals), Mike Peters (harmonica) and Jacob Cordy (Conga drums). Our set list is island-style, and the songs are originals that are familiar especially in Hawaii, Key West and the Conch Republic, said MacPhail, who performed at the island gathering last year as a solo artist. As you know, the Conchalele is the official musical instrument there. I will set up a table top display of Conchaleles beside the stage, and am still collecting petition signatures for it to become the Florida state instrument. Also new to the Baileyfest stage will be guitarist John Stey, a singersongwriter who performs popular country, bluegrass and classic rock oldies. Returning acts include Another Door Opens, The Country Chicks, The Country Rhythm Cloggers directed by Pat Bedingfield as well as Joey Giangreco and The Sanibel School Steel Drum Band and chorus. Additional acts will be announced as the date draws closer. Back by popular demand, event emcee and singer Frank Torino will entertain Baileyfest crowds with his renditions of classic songs made famous by Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Tom Jones. In addition to games for youngsters and inflatable activities, there will be valuable household-themed prizes and gift certificates donated by local merchants. They will include: Baileys General Store $100 gift certificate; Billys at Baileys Two bicycle rentals for 24 hours; Lily & Co. Jewelers $100 gift certificate; George & Wendys Sanibel Grille Four $25 gift certificates; Island Cleaners $100 gift certificate; Select Vacation Properties $100 gift basket surprise; The Grog Shop $100 case of wine.

April Boehnen and Chris Gutierrez will be working fulltime with the Ding Darling Wildlife SocietyFriends of the Refuge (DDWS) until June 2019 to support the refuge. Boehnen, who graduated from Ohio State University in May 2017 with a major in animal sciences and minors in agricultural communications and wildlife, comes to the refuge from an animal care internship at Safe Haven Wildlife Sanctuary in Imlay, Nevada. Im most excited about being able to combine my interests of wildlife and graphic design. This internship allows me to explore a different side of the wildlife field than Ive experienced, she said. Im also looking forward to learning the behind-the-scenes aspects to a national wildlife refuge. A native of Grafton, Ohio, Boehnen is enjoying the warm weather and small-town feel of Sanibel Island. The sense of community and support the refuge receives from everyone on Sanibel is amazing, she said. My favorite part so far is being surrounded by a small piece of paradise that I am lucky enough to help support. Gutierrez hails from Holbrook on Long Island, New York and comes to Ding Darling from a summer internship at Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge in Virginia. The island is beautiful. Its like living on vacation, he said. The wildlife is awesome and were not even into the peak of bird season yet. Just walking to work I get to see animals that the average person may never get to see in their lifetime. Gutierrez graduated in May from Alfred University, a small private college in Upstate New York, with a degree in finance and economics. What Im most excited for on the job is the opportunity to learn about the ways nonprofits raise money, he said. It is critical to the success of the refuge and conservation as a whole. So, future fundraising events and meeting with donors is what Im really looking forward to. DDWS provides living stipends and other benefits for about a dozen refuge and DDWS interns each year. The refuge supports interns with free housing. Our interns bring youthful energy, enthusiasm, and creativity to the refuge team, said DDWS Executive Director Birgie Miller. The internship program is just one example of how the nonprofit and refuge partnership works for the better good of conservation and wildlife. To learn about supporting the refuge intern program, contact Miller at 4721100 ext. 4. Chris Gutierrez and April Boehnen photo providedRefuge Team Adds Art InternVisitor services art intern May Jernigan arrived recently to help the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge with staffing shortages this fall, thanks to funding from the Ding Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge (DDWS). Jernigan, a 2016 graduate from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, holds a bachelor of fine arts degree and is currently earning a graduate certificate for science illustration from California State University Monterey Bay. Through Thanksgiving, she will be assisting Supervisory Refuge Ranger Toni Westland with educational art related to the Ding Darling Days eco-festival, October 12 to 14, and plastic awareness projects. Im looking forward to working on a poster detailing how plastic waste affects wildlife and the environment, not just on Sanibel but the world as a whole, said Jernigan. Im hoping to transform the kinds of issues the refuge workers see on a daily basis into a concise poster that is effective to a broader audience. I also am excited to draw loggerhead sea turtles on that poster. The St. Louis, Missouri native has visited Sanibel many times with her family. It feels like another home to me, she said. Im thrilled to see all my favorite wildlife again. I also love how generous and kind everyone has been at the refuge. We are looking forward to putting Mays talents and energy to use during Ding Days, when she will lead a number of hands-on nature art projects, said Westland. We are so thankful to our friends group. Without them, our internship program would not be possible, which would leave us woefully understaffed as refuge personnel continues to shrink due to budget cuts. For more information about the refuges internship programs, contact Westland at 472-1100 ext. 237.

Kingfisher Real EstateThe top producers at Kingfisher Real Estate for the month of September were: Valerie Tutor, top sales agent; and Mary Bondurant, top listing agent. ISLAND SUN BUSINESS NEWSMAKERS Valerie Tutor Mary BondurantLions Learn About Shared Medical DecisionsJan Manarite, executive vice president of Prostate Cancer International (PCI), spoke to the Sanibel Captiva Lions Club on the importance of shared medical decisions during the clubs September dinner meeting. Be a part of decisions with your doctor and dont be afraid to ask questions, said Manarite, who has made a career out of listening. For more than 15 years, she has been a calm voice to caregivers and patients trying to make sense of a prostate cancer diagnosis. It was her experience over 13 years of searching for treatments for her late husband, Dominic, that gave rise to a calling as a patient advocate. In 2001, she started working for Prostate Cancer Research Institute and today continues to spend time talking to patients and caregivers in her role at the small nonprofit PCI. The first step in understanding more about your diagnosis is getting your medical records, said Manarite. They provide the foundation for your decisions and the more you know, the more empowered you become. And that leads to shared decision making with your doctor. Prostate cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in men. While it usually grows slowly and may not cause serious harm in the prostate gland, some types are aggressive and can spread quickly. The causes of prostate cancer are unclear, but doctors know that it begins when some cells in the prostate become abnormal. You can always request a PSA (prostate-specific antigen) blood test, but understand that it is used as a measurement for risk, not for diagnosing, said Manarite. In addition to providing comfort and advice, Manarite organizes patient conferences, which are free of charge. One will be held on Saturday, March 2 at Jan Manarite photo provided Florida Gulf Coast University. The Sanibel Captiva Lions meet the third Wednesday of the month with a different guest speaker at The Community House. Meetings begin with cocktails and appetizers are 6 p.m. and dinner at 7 p.m. Visiting Lions and anyone interested in becoming a Lion are welcome.

Captiva, FL 33924 REDUCED REDUCED REDUCED Superior InteriorsUpgrade Your Outdoor Livingby Trinette NelsonWith fall season upon us, theres a good chance youre back to taking full advantage of your lanai, patio and backyard spaces. But are you satisfied with the look and feel of your areas for outdoor living? Step outside and look around. When was the last time you upgraded the furniture, lighting and decor? Just because this space is outdoors doesnt mean you shouldnt treat it like every other room in your home. It deserves the same attention to design and decor. Sometimes, all it takes is a solid theme to encourage the rest of the ideas that come with upgrading your outdoor space. Something lively and refreshing can wake up the living area. Adding a modern, contemporary accent can help you achieve that fresh vibe, or perhaps instead, a more traditional, natural look made up of wooden decorations, furniture and accent pieces. Think about your desired theme before you start making any adjustments. If you cant remember the last time you bought new patio furniture, nows an excellent time to treat yourself. A new table, bench or set of chairs can transform the space seamlessly and encourage you to spend even more of your time outside in the future. Want to make your patio cozy and inviting? An open wood or natural gas fire pit can help you achieve that comforting, sophisticated atmosphere that you can find outside of a bar or restaurant. Place a few benches and chairs with cushions nearby and turn your backyard into the go-to space for an evening get-together. Much like how the fire pit adds a natural element to the patio, a nearby garden can set a lovely tone during the daytime as you sit outside and enjoy the fresh air. Plant fresh, blooming flowers and shrubbery or make the garden more functional and efficient by planting vegetables and herbs. Theres nothing like having your own personal organic grocery store just steps away from your patio. If you plan to spend a good amount of time on your patio after the sun sets, you may want to consider upgrading the outdoor lighting. One fixture simply isnt going to cut it, especially if youre going to have guests over more often. Consider a string of decorative lights paired with hanging lanterns that flow around the patio. You can also make a path from the lanai to the backyard patio using string lights or modern fixtures that sit on the ground. Whether youre throwing an outdoor party soon or you want to enhance the space for your own enjoyment, these simple upgrades can transform your outdoor living areas with ease.

Speakers Address Local Issues At Realtor Breakfast On September 20, the Sanibel & Captiva Islands Association of Realtors (SCIAR) hosted Lee County Commissioner Cecil Pendergrass at its monthly membership breakfast. Jacob Gil, regional coordinator for the Florida Amendment 2 campaign, also spoke to the group. The speakers were invited to address important issues facing island realtors. Pendergrass discussed the final draft of the Continuation Budget and the hot topic on everyones mind: water quality. In August, Mayor Kevin Ruane, along with several other mayors from affected cities, went to the commission to request a state of emergency be declared due to red tide and the blue-green algae crisis and the devastating impact it has had on the islands economies and ecological health. Recently, the state allotted $3.9 million in emergency funding for Lee continued on page 42 Jacob Gil photos provided Commissioner Cecil Pendergrass

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 5, 201842 According to various reports, the average life insurance agent dies about 10 years earlier than the average purchaser of life insurance. A theory persists that agents believe in the actuarial tables which to me is just an average of when people die more than the customers do. Similarly, physicians die earlier than patients because theyre more in touch with all the things that can kill you; whereas, the average individual doesnt think about these issues until they become a problem. Is life expectancy therefore affected by your mindset? And, if so, what mindsets serve to extend life rather than minimize it? Dan Sullivan, founder of the Strategic Coach program, came up with eight mindsets that he believes extend the average individuals life. In many of his workshops, he asks the class a question: At what age do you think you will die? He asks us to write down that number. For many, that number is based on family history as well as what they believe the actuary tables say is a normal life expectancy. Typically, the numbers range from the late 50s to 100 years old. Sullivan next asks, Is that a number you agree with, or would you like to have another number? He says that almost everyone writes down a larger number. By having a number thats farther off in the future, you take the present day experience you have available to you now more seriously. You get more focused on the real meaning and value of your present circumstances, he informs. From here, he launches into his eight mindsets: Lifetime Extender You understand that the age at which you expect to die is negotiable and changing the future number changes your present mindset towards a variety of topics. You realize that just because the average American has a life expectancy of 80-some years, this isnt necessarily a ceiling you must buy into. Your Number You confidently choose the extended age at which youll die and then use that number to transform everything else. You change how you eat, exercise, work, invest in finances and relationships; Ignoring Others Expectations You no longer pay attention to how long other people expect to live or what they think about your goal for a longer life. Sullivan encourages you to verbalize how long you intend to live, even if it seems outrageous. His personal goal is 156 years! Hes currently age 74. He says its irrelevant whether he makes that span. What is relevant is how this mindset affects how he lives the remainder of his life; Friends, Money and Purpose You continually expand these three crucial daily capabilities for living a longer life. Its important to replenish your sets of friends, and to make sure not to stick to your own age group. By sticking to friends only within your age group, you become convinced that your life expectancy is the average as your friends die off. When you dont have money, you feel dependent, and no longer want to be a burden to others which shortens life expectancy. Finally, its vital to have a purpose to live for, to give meaning to your life; Eliminating the Idea of Retirement Sullivan believes that retirement is a vestige of the industrial age and is no longer applicable to our society. Here, you see yourself becoming increasingly more capable, useful and productive as your longer life expands. He stresses that you need not remain at your present occupation, rather its important to have some career purpose that continually motivates and drives you; Ever Expanding Happiness You continually identify new areas of happiness in all areas of your life and work to keep expanding them. Instead of always pursuing happiness, start with expressing and internalizing gratitude, which is a voluntary activity. Once you master that capability, then youre always increasing the value of everything and everyone you encounter, expanding your happiness; Future Bigger Than Past You always see and make your life ahead transformatively bigger and better than your previous experience. Consequently, you set up what your future experience will be. You become motivated and fascinated with the things in your life that keep getting bigger and bigger. You leave behind conventional thoughts about older people declining and slowing down; Age Reversing Technology Its only because you have the goal of living longer that youre going to pick up on the phenomenal scientific, technological, and medical breakthroughs that will allow you to take advantage of them. These developments will enable you to seem physically younger than your actual age because, as the actuary and physician examples reflect, the body does follow the mind. You may not buy into these mindsets and whether theyll increase your longevity, but my take on all of this is: Whats the harm?! At a minimum, these mindsets all appear life-enhancing. Certainly no one wants to die before their time. The whole question before us, therefore, is, when exactly, is your time? 2018 Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at www.sbshlaw.com.

He also fielded questions from several SCIAR members and was candid about the problems and solutions to water quality issues. Gil later explained the benefits of renewing Florida Amendment 2. He discussed that the amendment keeps a cap, already in place, on how much local governments can increase certain property taxes every year. These taxes are typically put onto local businesses and rental properties, though it affects everyone by keeping Florida an affordable place to live and do business.

The meeting concluded with a caravan tour of properties for sale on Sanibel and Captiva, and was sponsored by two association affiliate business partners: Ned Hale with Hale Law Services, PA and the Ding Darling Wildlife Society Friends of the Refuge.

The first discussion, entitled How Columbus Almost Did Not Discover America, will take place at 4:30 p.m. on Monday, October 8, exploring the life and legacy of Marco Polo. Florida SouthWestern State College professor Adrian Kerr will discuss the many setbacks suffered by Polo, how perilously close he came to failure and the great impact he had on the young Genoese sailor, Christopher Columbus. Shell Point will also present Amendments on the Ballot for Floridas Midterm Election from 10 to 11:30 a.m. on Monday, October 22, led by Clara Anne Graham, president of the League of Women Voters of Lee County.

During the 90-minute presentation, Graham will share an understanding of major public policy issues and proposed amendments that are slated for the upcoming ballot. The final Academy class for October, entitled Sea Turtles, will take place at 10 a.m. on Thursday, October 25, led by Kristie Anders, education director at the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation. Attendees will learn about the loggerhead turtle; the Kemps ridley turtle, which spends its juvenile years in the sea grasses of Pine Island Sound; and a very rare, 700-pound leatherback that chose Sanibels beach for a nesting event just a few years ago. Anders presentation will also incorporate new information acquired from a sea turtle geneticist. Cost per session is $10 and can be reserved by calling 489-8472.

Kristie Anders photo providedThe Jac Gives Back To Southwest FloridaA touch of Southwest Florida is in everything The Jac Sanibel Island Grille & Rum Bar does. Thats why the new restaurant on Periwinkle Way is launching The Jac Gives Back campaign to give half of the proceeds from four specialty drinks to charities benefitting the local community. Members of the community support our restaurant every day, said Eve Alves, owner of The Jac. Its my social responsibility to combine everyday life with charitable giving, and I truly believe in giving back to the community I serve. The Periwinkle, a tart cherry libation with Hendricks Gin and a twist of lemon, benefits Community Housing and Resources (CHR), a nonprofit organization that addresses the growing need for affordable housing in Sanibel.

It Was A Historic Last Weekend To The 2018 Baseball Seasonby Ed FrankThe fascination with baseball history is what makes the game so great. And nothing could have been more historic than last weekends final weekend of the regular season. When the Chicago Cubs, the Milwaukee Brewers, the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Colorado Rockies all won on Sunday, it set the stage for a pair of tiebreaker games the next day to determine the National League Central and National League West division champions. That is the first time in baseball history that two division titles were decided on the same day by playing Games 163. You no doubt know by now that Milwaukee and Los Angeles won the tiebreakers and division crowns on Monday, and Chicago and Colorado faced each other the next day in a wildcard matchup. You could have won a whole bunch of money betting on Milwaukee to win the NL Central at seasons start. The Brew Crew in recent years faded from contention near the end of the regular seasons. But not this year. Milwaukee was five games back of the Cubs on September 1. On October 1, they won the division title. They won 28 of their final 38 games and, during that stretch, won 10 of 11 and eight in a row. Its the first time since 2011 that Milwaukee made it to the playoffs. And theres a little bit of history in the Dodgers winning the NL West for the sixth year in a row. Since divisional play began, only two other teams, the Atlanta Braves and the New York Yankees, have won six division championships in a row. Note that the Braves and Yankees won World Series Championships during those runs. It was the late great Chicago Cubs Ernie Banks who coined the slogan, Lets Play Two, referring to a baseball double-header. They played two on Monday to decide two division championships. Ernie would have liked that. Emotional Farewell For Joe Mauer Or Is It? In what many believe was his final game, Minnesota Twins fans gave Joe Mauer an emotional farewell last Sunday at Target Field. One of the all-time greats in Twins history, Mauer played his entire 15-year Major League career for the Twins during which he was a six-time All Star, won three batting titles, was the American League Most Valuable Player in 2009, and had more than 2,000 hits and 1,000 runs scored If it was his final game last Sunday, he went out in Mauer style, crushing a double in the seventh inning and then donned his old catching equipment for one pitch in the ninth inning. Mauer was the Twins first overall selection in the 2001 Major League Draft. A threesport high school star, he turned down a scholarship to Florida State University to sign with the Twins as an 18-year-old. In 2010, he signed an eight-year, $184-million contract, which today is still the highest for a catcher in baseball history. But after a series of concussions suffered as a catcher, the Twins moved Mauer to first base in 2013 for the remainder of his career. If this was his final year, it sure was a respectable season as he hit .282 in 127 games played. Just 35 years old, he may still have something left in the tank, for another season or two. However, should he retire from active play, dont be surprised if he takes another job in the Twins organization. Joe Mauer was truly a credit to baseball and the Minnesota Twins. Molitor Out As Twins Manager Minnesota Twins Manager Paul Molitor was fired Tuesday, ending his four-year run as skipper. He had a year remaining on his contract. He was offered a a job in the Twins organization should he want to remain with the club. His record as manager was 305-343 (.471) in those four seasons with one postseason appearance, that being a wildcard slot last year. SUN ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 5, 201844 SPORTS QUIZ 1.

45 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 5, 2018 Celebrating A Decade Of Racing For FISH FISH of SanCap held the first 10K Race 4 FISH fundraiser in 2009 to help support the nonprofit organization founded 36 years ago based on neighbors helping neighbors. The idea was introduced in 2008 by then board member Joel Soobitsky, however, a severe thunderstorm forced the cancellation on that first race day. Since that inaugural year, races have been successful. Details are fine-tuned, a new logo is designed each year, and the race has become an annual major fundraiser, with help from the City of Sanibel, Fort Myers Track Club, volunteers and sponsors. Runners come from around the state, other parts of the country and from abroad. Celebrating his 100th race, Tom Kelly will run the 10K this year, scheduled for Saturday, October 27. He said, Ive done the FISH 10K several times, and Im always impressed with how well FISH and the Fort Myers Track Club organize all the details and how enthusiastically the volunteers cheer for all the runners. To a runner, this is so appreciated because it makes the race so much more fun. Of course, the main reason I enjoy it so much is because of the cause it supports. FISH is a major help to so many people in need, and its a satisfying feeling knowing Im helping in a small way by participating in the 10K. Each year, the number of people attending the event and the support from sponsors has grown. One Sanibel resort manager said, Its not just FISH who benefits from this, but the community as a whole. The 10K race brings visitors to hotels, restaurants and shops at a time of year when Sanibel is usually quiet. This years 10K Race for FISH Committee includes: Ed Ridlehoover, chair; Pete Bender, co-chair; Diane Cortese, sponsor co-chair; John Pryor, finance chair; Paul Gulbrandsen, volunteer chair; George Campean, goodie bag chair; JeAnne Hertel, Fort Myers Track Club; and Shannen Hayes, public relations. FISH is supported by donations and volunteers. Families working in service industries, children and seniors comprise the 3,959 clients in 1,863 households. FISH offers food from its pantry, counseling, community resource referrals, emergency financial assistance for unexpected medical, rent, utility and other expenses. FISH provides scholarships for children to attend summer, specialty and after school programs and now fills more than 1,000 backpacks yearly with weekend food for qualified households living and/or working on Sanibel and Captiva with school-age children from Pre-K through 12th grade. The FISH Walk-in Center is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 3:45 p.m.; appointments available. For more information, visit www. fishofsancap.org or call 472-4775. Volunteers and organizers of the 10K Race 4 FISH were honored during Tuesdays city council meeting with a proclamation recognizing the 10th anniversary of the road race.

The briefing was sponsored by Senators Bill Nelson and Marco Rubio, and hosted by the Ocean Conservancy and Citizens Climate Lobby to report on and highlight the nearly yearlong red tide in the Gulf of Mexico. Wessel requested federal action to reauthorize the Harmful Algal Bloom and Hypoxia Research and Control Act, set to expire this weekend, and EPA funding for the healthy beaches program. The act enables NOAA to monitor algae blooms, research their causes, and give grants to affected communities, among other things. EPA funding cuts for the healthy beaches program this summer required local funding to keep weekly beach monitoring from being cut. Wessel emphasized, We cant take risks with this. This isnt a luxury. This is public health. The hearing highlighted the far reaching impacts from the red tide event occurring along the Gulf Coast of Southwest Florida since October 2017. With over 2,200 tons of dead marine life removed from Lee County beaches, and almost 200 dead sea turtles in Southwest Florida since the event began, the environmental impacts have been devastating. The tourism industry on Southwest Floridas barrier islands has also been negatively affected. Sanibel and Fort Myers Beach have lost close to $41 million due impacts from red tide in the last two months. Presenting at the red tide briefing on Capitol Hill was an incredible opportunity to provide the results of the economic impact survey from the chamber and quantify the revenue losses, jobs represented, and concern of long range impacts that this event has posed to our community, said Lai. Locally, our partnership with organizations such as SCCF is powerful, but the opportunity to expand our influence with national organizations like the Ocean Conservancy and Citizens Climate Lobby, presenting to over 60 federal legislators, brings us one step closer to our goal of economic relief and Everglades restoration. From page 8Stalematewithin the proposed business location. Are seven electric carts really going to make a difference, one way or another? asked DeBruce. This doesnt pass the fair or sensible test. All four members of the council with Vice Mayor Mick Denham absent and excused from the October 2 meeting weighed in with their opinions of the appeal. Councilwoman Holly Smith, who expressed her concern that the applicants only learned that the city staff had recommended denial of their application four days prior to the May 22 public hearing, said she was surprised that the staff report recommended a straight denial rather than offer a list of recommended conditions for approval. Councilman Jason Maughan explained that there are often disagreements when it comes to considering conditional use applications, but he was unmoved by their presentation to reverse the planning commissions decision. He suggested that commissioners had weighed all of the evidence provided and correctly applied the conditions of the Sanibel Plan in their decision. Mayor Kevin Ruane stated that he was troubled by the interpretations of the Land Development Code made by the commission regarding the application. Following some additional comments by council and the applicants, Maughan made a motion to affirm the planning commissions decision, which was seconded by Councilman Chauncey Goss. However, the council was split in their vote two for and two against leaving the motion to fail. Agnew explained that the council could table their discussion on the matter until next months meeting, when the full membership could vote on the appeal, or send the application back to the planning commission to reconsider. After a brief discussion, the council voted three-to-one with Maughan dissenting to table the appeal until the November 6 meeting. Sorry Mick, Maughan said. I know hes listening somewhere. In other business, Ruane noted that the City of Fort Myers had joined the joint petition filed on September 25 by leaders from Sanibel, Cape Coral and 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). On September 13, the SFWMD approved 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. Ruane, who also noted that he would be making presentations before the local governments of Bonita Springs and Estero on October 3, added that he would request to speak before the Lee County Board of County Commissioners in two weeks. We have to utilize the experts that we have and stand as a united front, he said, noting that he is communicating with leaders on Captiva, Pine Island and Boca Grande as well.

Doctor and DieticianDietary Ironby Ross Hauser, MD and Marion Hauser, MS, RDDo you have difficulty getting enough iron in your diets? Women of child-bearing age, vegetarians and those who eat less red meat may struggle to get sufficient dietary iron. Iron is the most common nutritional deficiency in the U.S. Its important for your body, because iron is a component of hemoglobin, the substance in red blood cells that carries oxygen to your tissues. Your body does not make iron. It is an essential nutrient that you must get from food. A shortage of iron can occur when you consume too little iron over an extended amount of time. A deficiency of iron can cause anemia, which may make you feel fatigued. Iron deficiency anemia is the most common type of anemia. With insufficient iron in your blood stream, the rest of your body cant get the amount of oxygen it needs. In addition to poor iron intake, there are also medical conditions that can lead to iron deficiency anemia, such as stomach ulcers. The regular use of pain relievers, like aspirin, can also cause internal bleeding that can lead to iron deficiency. Luckily, there are plenty of good food choices that can help you meet your daily iron needs. Foods such as meat, eggs and leafy green vegetables are high in iron. Other foods high in iron include legumes, pumpkin and squash seeds, raisins, seafood, organ meats and quinoa (a versatile, gluten-free grain). Additionally, vitamin C helps your body to absorb iron, so including it in your diet is important, especially if you dont eat much meat. Any underlying condition, whether too much or too little iron in the blood, needs to be treated. But when deficiency is due to inadequate dietary intake, consumption of diets higher in iron and vitamin C can help prevent it.

Beautifulife:The Juggling Actby Kay CaspersonHow many of you feel like you are constantly juggling several balls in the air at one time on a daily basis? Do you ever drop some and have to stop to pick them up and start over, time and time again? Let me just start with the fact that you are not alone, because life is definitely a juggling act. Taking care of kids, career, health, wellness, fitness, family, spouses, significant others and squeezing in the occasional time for yourself can be a test, to say the least. Unfortunately, we tend to lose the last part of that juggle, which is usually the time for yourself. You might already know by now that the first and most vital part of your act is your me time, and if neglected, can lead to dropping many balls over and over again. Making yourself a priority in the juggle of life will give you the much-needed talent and strength to keep all the balls in the air with flawless effort which, however, does not come without practice and consistency. I have found over the years that the more clear my vision of having a beautiful life is, the more balls get placed in my act. It does become even more challenging, but somehow we are never given more then we can really handle and, it just may take more concentration and effort to keep them all flying together and in sync. I know there are times when you wonder how you can possibly juggle all of this and stay sane. This is the perfect time to step back and take a good look at which ball needs to be let go of, or moved to a different position. Being organized is crucial, as well as not being afraid to ask for help when the juggle gets too tough. There are people you should be able to lean on every once in a while to help you through some of the juggling acts but if you take that time to analyze the importance of each ball and where they should be placed in the act, you will take on only what you are ready for and can handle. What a fantastic feeling it is when we get all those balls flying in the air seamlessly and without much effort. This is when you know you have accomplished the act, at least for today, and can continue your journey to having your most balanced and beautiful life. My favorite affirmations for the juggling act are: I am making myself a priority in balancing my day-to-day responsibilities. Dont forget to focus on your own health and wellness to stay strong and happy. I keep my day planned out, organized and free of stress. Writing things down and checking them off your list will keep you moving in the right direction. I am thankful for my blessings and I know that I can handle all that comes my way. Having a positive, grateful mindset will make all the difference in the world. Kay Casperson is a beauty and lifestyle expert, founder and CEO of Beautifulife by Kay Casperson.

Immunization Clinic This SundaySanibel Community Church will be hosting its annual Walgreens Immunization Clinic onsite in Fellowship Hall on Sunday, October 7 from 9 a.m. to noon. The CDC states that the 2017-18 influenza season was a high severity season across all age groups. There were high levels of outpatient clinic and emergency department visits, with widespread geographical activity for an extended period of time. The season activity began to increase in November and reached an extended period of high activity during January and February. This activity remained elevated through the end of March, and made the 2017-18 season one of the longest in recent years. The best protection against the flu is getting the vaccine. Additionally, the CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics are both recommending that all adults and children (other than those who should be excluded) receive their flu shots by the end of October. Most flu vaccines take about two weeks to offer maximum protection. For more information, contact Deb Stephens BSN RN CN, faith community nurse, at deborah@sanibelchurch.com or 401-529-0713.

SUN deaRPharmacistThe Connection Between Stevia And Ragweedby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Readers:Its hardly a secret that many foods today have non-sugar sweeteners added to them. As far as natural sweeteners go, stevia is the king. Its in a bazillion food products, many of which are aimed at people with diabetes or obesity. Powdered supplements and lozenges often contain stevia, its everywhere. Stevia is a plant-derived herb, so obviously there could be allergies. Maybe your throat itches or seizes up when sipping a stevia-sweetened drink or when you chew on sugar-free gum. Maybe you sneeze or your lips itch. Perhaps its a coughing fit or hives and a rash. Its all because of a very common allergen: ragweed. Are you allergic to ragweed? If you are, then you are also susceptible to sensitivities from stevia consumption. Before I discuss allergic symptoms, Id like to share the extraordinary medical benefits that stevia offers in case youre not allergic to it. Most people are not. Stevia helps with diabetes, hypertension, kidney disease, pain and inflammation, infections and diarrhea. Stevia is 200 times sweeter than table sugar, contains almost no calories, and wont adversely affect your blood sugar when consumed. Thats why its an incredible herb for sweetening foods when youre on a diet, or if you are just health conscious. But the problem is the family tree. Stevia was born into the Asteraceae family, or Aster which essentially means that stevia is genetically kin to marigolds, daises, chrysanthemums, dandelion, lettuce, safflower, sunflower, artemisia (wormwood), artichokes, endive and, most importantly, ragweed. This is a botanical family that allergen-prone individuals need to stay away from. In fact, theres an estimated 23 million Americans who suffer from ragweedtriggered hay fever. Not all of those people are sensitive to stevia, or the other plants in the Aster family, but some of you are and may not have realized it until just now. Pollen from the ragweed and pollen from the stevia plant contain very similar proteins as part of their genetic make-up. This means that theres cross-reactivity between them. Once the stevia protein passes through your gut and gets absorbed by your bloodstream, it might get mistaken by your immune system and shot down. Your body might mistake it for the ragweed protein (because theyre so structurally similar) and then youre faced with miserable allergic symptoms. I have written a longer version of this article that features other natural sweeteners, as well as advice to help determine if youre truly allergic. Visit www.suzycohen.com and sign up for my free newsletter so I can email you this article along with precautions. In the meantime, keep track of symptoms that are suggestive of ragweed cross-reactivity such as throat, lip and mouth itching and swelling, hives, dizziness, coughing fits, temporary shortness of breath, or throat pain. If you feel like youre sensitive, I recommend cutting out stevia from your diet until you get some answers and visiting a board-certified immunologist for testing.

Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: I tend to have low selfesteem that stems from growing up with alcoholic parents. Do you have some tools to help me feel better about myself?A: I have seen that when self-esteem is low, you are a target for the negative impact of heightened stress and anxiety. Perhaps attending Al Anon is a good start to realize that you are not alone, and this can help you to feel that you have support. Next, you have a special gift that makes you unique and special. In moments of stress, when the ego is caught in a downward spiral of self-defeating thoughts, those unique attributes can be disempowered. When we lose track of our special uniqueness, we begin to feel we are not worthy of anything. I would like for you to get into a quiet place where you surround yourself with an environment that you like. Write down five attributes that make you feel unique and special. This is to help you focus on your strengths and gifts rather than your non-strengths and imperfections. The following day, write down five more attributes that make you feel special and unique. Continue this exercise as long as you can write these positive attributes down. When you have completed this exercise, repeat all of the positive attributes you have written thus far. Repeat them to yourself until you begin to feel them. Within everyone, there is a special gift and uniqueness. Begin to know this part of yourself and scrape off the egos dirt and grime. It is then you will shine. Constance Clancy, EdD, LMHC, LPC, NCC is a licensed mental health therapist, hypnotherapist, author and holistic stress management instructor.

Im about a year old and was found in the area of East Lake Road, off Casa Ybel Road. 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 this month. I did not have a microchip.

I am approximately 1 to 2 years old, have no microchip and am a tan/ black tabby. I am very sweet and gentle and am now in a foster home. 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 this month. Please consider giving me a forever home. These young cats are extremely sweet and well-behaved. If you are interested in adopting one or both of these beautiful girls, call Pam at PAWS, 472-4823. Find Your FidoLee County Domestic Animal Services will be joining the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) with the #FindYourFido initiative for the second consecutive year. The campaigns goal is to raise awareness of homeless animals and to help find safe, loving homes for dogs in the community. To encourage local supporters to #FindYourFido, Animal Services will reduce its adoption fees for dogs to $30 through October 31. The ASPCA #FindYourFido campaign is designed to expand the digital exposure for animals nationwide and raise awareness regarding the benefits of adopting a pet. During the month of October, Fido, a cardboard cutout ambassador for adoptable dogs, will be in the lobby of Animal Services to illustrate how easy it is to picture a shelter pet in someones daily life and encourage animal adoption. The adoption center is open 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday at 5600 Banner Drive in Fort Myers. For more information visit www.leelostpets.com.

Top 10 Real Estate SalesCourtesy of Royal Shell Real Estate 55 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 5, 2018 My Stars FOR WEEK OF OCTOBER 8, 2018Aries (March 21 to April 19) Your Aries charm helps persuade others to listen to your proposal. But its still a long way from acceptance, unless you can stand up to the tough questions that are set to follow. Taurus (April 20 to May 20) Plan to share a weekend getaway from all the pressures of your hectic workaday world with a very special someone. You could be pleasantly surprised at what develops. Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Your keen insight once again helps you handle a challenging situation with a clearer perception of what its really all about. What you learn helps you make a difficult decision. Cancer (June 21 to July 22) If you want to steer clear of getting involved in a new family dispute, say so. Your stand might cause hurt feelings for some, but overall, youll be respected for your honesty. Leo (July 23 to August 22) Expect recognition for your efforts in getting a project into operation. Besides the more practical rewards, your Lions heart will be warmed by the admiration of your colleagues. Virgo (August 23 to September 22) Set aside time to rid yourself of clutter that might well be drawing down your creative energies. Consider asking someone to help you decide what stays and what goes. Libra (September 23 to October 22) A colleague could make a request that might place you in an awkward position with co-workers. Best advice: Share your concerns with an associate you can trust. Scorpio (October 23 to November 21) Your energy levels are way up, allowing you to take on the added challenge of a task youve been hoping to secure. Expect this move to lead to an important opportunity. Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21) Your continuing sense of confidence in what youve set out to do gives encouragement to others. Expect to see more people asking to add their efforts to yours. Capricorn (December 22 to January 19) You might think it would be best to reject a suggestion that others insist would be unworkable. But you might be surprised by what you find if you give it a chance. Aquarius (January 20 to February 18) Changing a decision might disappoint some people, but the important thing is that you be honest with yourself. Dont go ahead with anything you have doubts about. Pisces (February 19 to March 20) There could be some fallout from an emotional confrontation that you really should deal with before moving on. Best to start fresh with a clean, clear slate. Born This Week: Your honesty not only helps you make decisions for yourself, but also helps others find the right choices for themselves. It was Democratic governor and presidential hopeful Adlai Stevenson who made the following sage observation: A free society is a place where its safe to be unpopular. Statistics show that for every 71,000 skydiving jumps made, there is only one fatality. That might not seem surprising until you put it in context: You have a one in 20,000 chance of dying from a regular fall right here on solid ground. AA Milne, the British author best known for his childrens books about Winnie the Pooh, had a teacher and mentor you might not expect: HG Wells, one of the acknowledged fathers of science fiction and author of such novels as The War of the Worlds, The Invisible Man and The Island of Dr. Moreau. Heres a smart idea: Some fitness centers are now using the energy clients expend on its exercise bikes to help power the buildings lighting. Arctic biologists say that polar bears can go weeks without eating which is certainly handy in an environment where food isnt always easy to get. Evidently, if a polar bear goes a week to 10 days without eating, its metabolism will slow down and the animal will live off its fat reserves until it finds its next meal. According to not one, but two studies conducted on the subject, those who have a ring finger that is longer than their index finger tend to be better athletes. If you drive a white automobile, you have a lot of company. There are more white cars in the United States than any other color. The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.
