Earlier, on September 28, judges had selected three winners and 11 honorable mentions out of 121 entries from 20 states, the Netherlands and Switzerland. All photograph entries were shot at the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge complex. First place went to Frank Brinker of Oberageri, Switzerland for his great blue heron portrait titled Shakin. Contest judge Holly D. Smith, City of Sanibel councilwoman, remarked on its stunning depth-of-field and unique capture. I love its personality, pure and simple, she said of the birds disheveled appearance, looking as though it just shook water from its feathers. John Hoyt from Lewes, Delaware took second place with a black-and-white closeup of a female anhinga. Its so strikingly artistic with dramatic lighting and great detail, said judge Chelle Koster Walton, a Sanibel photojournalist. In third place was Cheri Hollis from Sanibel with a blue-winged teal shot titled True Blue. She actually got all the fine details of the duck, even the color under its wing, and the ripples in the water, said continued on page 27 Judges from left, Chelle Koster Walton, Holly D.

Were selling tickets through a special link with a promo code, said Joey Giangreco, music educator at the K-12 school. Tickets are only $18 each, and the school receives $8 from every ticket sold. Tickets for the Friday, November 9 Florida Everblades home game against the Jacksonville Icemen are only available online at www.floridaeverblades.com/ SanibelNight. Use the promo code SANIBELSCHOOL to receive this special offer and sit in the Sanibel section with your fellow school supporters and island neighbors. In addition to it being Sanibel Night, its also Swampee the Everblades mascots birthday. The first 3,000 children attending the game will receive a special Swampee Growth Chart, courtesy of sponsor Arthrex. Children 12 and under eat free in the Breakaway Sports Pub at Hertz Arena with the purchase of an adult entre. According to Giangreco, funds raised through the purchase of tickets to Sanibel Night will help offset the costs to bring the schools Seahorse Chorale to Lake Buena Vista, Florida later this year. On Friday, December 7, the group will be performing on the Disney Springs Marketplace Stage starting at 11 a.m. In the past, weve brought two different groups to Walt Disney World, said Giangreco. In 2017, the schools steel drum band performed at Disney Springs. And in February of this year, the Seahorse Chorale performed on the Marketplace Stage there, too. For their upcoming performance, six songs have been planned: We Will by Jim Papoulis, Homeward Bound by Marta Keen, Pompeii, arranged by James Narverud, Keep Your Lamps Trimmed and Burning, arranged by Greg Giplin, Were All In This Together from High School Musical, arranged by Alan Billingsley, and This Is Me from The Greatest Showman, arranged by Mack Huff. I think its a great setlist; well be able to showcase a wide variety of musical genres, added Giangreco. My students have been working together since August, and theyve worked really hard and are sounding great. Everybodys looking forward to performing at Disney again. Tickets for Sanibel Night must be purchased by Thursday, November 8. Hertz Arena is located at 11000 Everblades Parkway in Estero.

Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club President John Danner, along with members Cindy DeCosta, John Carney and Joleen Raho, arrived at the third grade classroom shared for the occasion by teachers Karen Thompson and Alexis Perry shortly after 10 a.m. on October 12, bringing with them several cases of softcover dictionaries to be distributed to each of the students. Why do we need to look up words, Danner asked the students. We look up words because we want to know how to pronounce them. We also look up the meanings of words. Upon receiving their new books, each student was asked to write their names inside. Later, Danner asked the class what their favorite word was. Among the responses: Mermaid. Unicorn. Watermelon. He then challenged the youngsters to look up the word automobile, pointing out several interesting elements of the dictionary including a section dedicated to American sign language while both teachers assisted their students in learning more about the multi-purpose book. More than 10,000 dictionaries are handed out by Lee County Rotarians each year on Dictionary Day, which became a tradition of the SanibelCaptiva Rotary Club in 1999.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 19, 201810 STEVEN GARY CHANCESteven Gary Chance peacefully breathed his last earthly breath surrounded by his loving family on July 23, 2018. He was born May 19, 1947 in New York City to Dr. MD Chance and Madeline Howe. Steve was proud to be a third generation chiropractor, graduating from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1971. He had the type of chiropractic career and practice that other doctors dream about; as he traveled extensively all over the world as the private chiropractor to some of the richest and most powerful people in the world. He was greatly beloved by all of his patients; respected and revered by his colleagues. Steve loved speedboats, Harley motorcycles, and his bicycle beach cruiser with the big fat tires where he securely affixed his signature Sanibel Island license plate to the front basket. When he wasnt out riding his cruiser along the beach, he proudly drove around the island in his EZ Go golf cart which he aptly named the Chet-Mobile. Perhaps you may have spotted him on one of the island roads, driving his royal blue golf cart with the LED undercarriage lights, and his infamous fog/smoke machine, tightly fastened to the back and inconspicuously hidden. No, it wasnt exhaust fumes puffing out of the back of the cart, on the contrary; he was fogging out the speeders and tailgaters who followed too close behind him he loved doing that. If you were lucky enough to avoid getting smoked, then perhaps you were one of the fortunate ones to hear his holiday harmony. Steve was musically gifted and could play beautifully, both the trumpet and guitar. Each year, on Sanibels Luminary Night, he would festively decorate his golf cart with twinkling lights and a life-sized lighted snowman. Then, Santa Claus and his wife would drive that cart up and down Periwinkle Way, as Steve, filled with Christmas cheer; blew out the melodies of carols on his trumpet for all to hear never missing a note, and creating the most exquisite sounds. In addition to his quick wit and sense of humor, Steve had an adventurous spirit. As a champion water skier and an avid swimmer, he loved snorkeling, scuba diving and spearfishing. He also had a bit of a fascination with pirate treasure, and searched most of the islands beaches and shores with his metal detector, hunting for the elusive mother lode he suspected might be buried somewhere on our island. Steve was a true Sanibelian and a 38-year resident of the island. He loved everything about Sanibel; shelling its beautiful beaches, its wildlife and ecosystems, its native flora and fauna, and its brilliant shimmering sunrises and luminous glowing sunsets. As a licensed pilot, Steve knew everything about weather patterns, air temperatures, the clouds, the moon and the multitude of stars that make up our solar system. But it was his family that was the center of his universe. And his life; his beautiful blessed and joy-filled life truly revolved around them. His bright and beautiful star has now dimmed, and his golden sun has set behind the horizon, but his altruistic legacy and unfailing love will live on forever. His children will tell you that there was not one question they could ask their Father that he did not have the answer to. Steve not only had a great depth of knowledge, he was a loving father and husband a man of great wisdom, discernment and integrity. Steve is survived by his wife of 43 years, Naomi, daughters Coral Chance Pross (Damon), Marianne Chance Rollmann (Patrick), son Steven Chet Chance, and four loving grandchildren, Alexa, Keegan, Brayden and Sydney Grace. He is also survived by his three brothers, Chuck (Ramona), Michael (Sandi), and Chris (Mary) Chance, and many nieces and nephews. A Celebration of Life for Steve will be held on Friday, November 2, 2018 at 6 p.m. in the Historic Chapel at Sanibel Community Church. All islanders who knew and loved Steve are welcome to attend. For memorial contributions, the family has designated Hope Healthcare of Fort Myers, 9470 HealthPark Circle, Fort Myers, FL 33908. ALDEN W. OSTERBUSCHAlden W. Buzz Osterbusch, born on January 8, 1932 in Chicago, Illinois, passed away on June 17, 2018 in Fort Myers. He attended Wheaton (Illinois) Community High School, where he lettered all four years in basketball, football and track. At age 16, instead of obtaining a drivers license, he earned his pilots license. Following high school, he enlisted in the United States Air Force, where he served during the Korean War. After the war, he started flying for Capital Airlines which became United Airlines a career he continued for 35 years. In 1988, he purchased a home on Sanibel Island, where he continued to fly, took up sailing and enjoyed playing basketball with his younger friends. He is survived by his loving partner, Nancy Cleaveland; his son, Kurt Osterbusch; his wife, Kris; and two granddaughters, Charlotte and Chloe; his daughter, Candy Simons, and her husband, Lee; and daughter, Linda Osterbusch. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, November 3 at 11 a.m. at St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church, 2304 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel, FL 33957. A reception at the church will follow. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Michaels Discretionary Fund.

Plant SmartCypress-Vine Morning-Gloryby Gerri ReavesCypress-vine morning-glory (Ipomoea quamoclit) is a native of Mexico and tropical America, and grows widely in the eastern U.S. and into Canada. In Florida, it has escaped cultivation and is found in disturbed sites, undeveloped lots, home landscapes, sidewalk cracks, untended areas such as alleys and along roadsides. This fast-growing member of the morning-glory family has a host of common names, including cardinal climber, star glory and hummingbird vine. Smooth twining stems can reach 20 feet long in good growing conditions. The alternate ovate leaves are divided, feather-like, and one to 3 inches long. Numerous threadlike leaflets give them an overall look of a delicate fern, although the common name refers to the leaves similarity to bald cypress leaves. Very slender funnel-shaped crimson flowers of about an inch across appear on long stalks in the leaf axils. Five fused petals flare out, forming star-like blooms that attract butterflies and hummingbirds. The stamens and pistils extend beyond the flowers long tube. The vine blooms most of the year and is a nectar source for butterflies such as the cloudless sulphur. It prefers a well-drained spot in full sun to partial shade. It is drought tolerant, but does best with plenty of moisture. The vine will quickly cover a trellis or fence or scamper up a wall, but can also be used as groundcover. It is easily propagated with cuttings or with the seeds in the spherical beaked pod, and it often self-propagates. An interesting tidbit of plant history: In 1791, Thomas Jefferson sent seeds of this vine from Philadelphia to his daughters Mary and Martha, and the seeds were planted in window boxes at Monticello.

If yes, your group already scored 10 points for Sanibel Sea Schools Flip Flop Family Scavenger Hunt. This family-friendly, all-ages event will be held on Saturday, November 3 beginning at 10:30 a.m. All proceeds will support the nonprofits scholarship fund, which makes it possible for children and families in need to have meaningful ocean experiences. In the morning, teams will be given a book of clues and challenges, each worth a set amount of points, said event coordinator Chrissy Basturk. Some will test your knowledge of our islands and the ocean, and others will require you to take funny pictures or find specific items to bring back with you, she added. There will also be an obstacle course, and one lucky participant will win a diamond flip-flop pendant valued at more than $2,000, donated by Lily & Co. Jewelers. If youve never participated in a Sanibel Sea School scavenger hunt before, you are in for a treat, said Basturk. We have offered this as a live auction item at past fundraisers, and the winning groups have described it as one of the most fun days they have ever had. The game will be followed by an evening bonfire celebration at Lighthouse Beach. Tickets are $25 per person, and teams of up to eight people can register together.

For us, its work that happens all summer long, said Pappas. We sell things year-round, and its exciting to see what new things we get in. For me, I like the camaraderie of getting ready for the big sale, added Sawyer. The sale is a fundraiser that grew out of their yearly arts and crafts festival, book sale and bake sale. It remains the groups biggest fundraiser of the year; in 2017, the sale generated $9,300. Donated goods, already on display inside the Center 4 Life, include something for everyone. Everything from artwork and antiques to jewelry and everyday household items can be found among the myriad of miscellaneous goods on sale. People may pay using cash or checks. During the sale, there will be grilled hot dogs and other refreshments. The Center 4 Life is currently accepting tax-deductible donations for the annual sale. All are invited to bring their clean, gently used items to the Center 4 Life located at the corner of Palm Ridge Road and Library Way during operating hours (8 a.m. to 3 p.m.). If you need assistance in delivering your items, call 472-5743 to make arrangements. Items being accepting include household furniture and home decorations, cookware, glassware, dishes and utensils, luggage, jewelry, fishing gear, boating supplies and sporting goods, toys and games, CDs and DVDs, small electronics, hardware, tools, linens (towels, sheets, pillows and blankets), fashion purses, wallets and collectibles. According to Sawyer, any donations made for the sale should be clean and in good condition. Thanks to everyone who makes a donation, she said.

Zero Red Tideby Capt. Matt MitchellFinally two good news stories about our water this week: For the first time in almost a year, FWC reports Lee County is red tide free and the long-awaited Water Resources Development Act has been authorized by Congress. This act is the first step in returning the natural flow of water south to the Everglades. Finally some positives after poor water management supercharged a giant 150-mile red tide bloom we had to deal with on and off for almost a year. This red tide did major damage to our environment, killing many of our marine mammals, turtles, fish while also crippling local businesses. This act passed by Congress is only the first step and a reminder to everyone that we have to stay involved and keep on the right path to fix this water quality issue once and for all. As Hurricane Micheal luckily skirted by us mid-week, conditions were windy and rough. Strong winds kept most boaters off the water until at least the end of the week when things finally calmed down. Catch-and-release snook fishing on either side of this weather event was outstanding on the few days I did manage to make it out. Snook of all sizes are being caught at almost every stop. Along with this crazy fall snook bite, we also managed a few redfish and limits of keeper-sized mangrove snapper. Jack crevalle and ladyfish have been all over the sound and easy to locate by just finding the birds. The above normal high tides brought on by the passing hurricane proved to be the perfect set up to fish both mangrove shorelines and oyster bars. Both bait fish and feeding birds have returned to the sound in huge numbers. Causeway bridges have just started to load up with shiners over the past few weeks, like they do every fall. With so many shiners around, its been possible to live chum for the first time since spring. This live bait chumming quickly lets you know if the fish are hungry as they explode on the surface. Free-lined shiners are the go-to bait all fall until the water gets cold, which hopefully wont happen until at least January. Hopefully this clean bill of health we just received means we can all get back to work after the slowest summer anyone can remember. Not only are the fish out there, they have had very little pressure on them. Add in cooler fall-like mornings, and its a perfect time to go fishing. Capt. Matt Mitchell has been fishing local waters since he moved to Sanibel in 1980. He now lives in St. James City and works as a back country fishing guide.

CROW Case Of The Week: Southern Flying Squirrel by Bob PetcherThe southern flying squirrel ( Glaucomys volans) is also known as an assapan or an eastern flying squirrel. The main difference between a southern flying squirrel and a common tree squirrel is body structure, as the flying squirrel has a gliding membrane, called a patagium, and a flattened tail. Another distinguishing feature is its size, as it averages only nine inches in length and 2.5 ounces in weight compared to the 12-inch length average and one pound weight average of the eastern gray squirrel in this region. Flying squirrels are also nocturnal, while most tree squirrels are more active during the day. Interestingly, while not seen very often due to their nocturnal activity, flying squirrels can be identified by their high-pitched, bird-like cheeps after sunset if you can hear them. These sounds, which are meant to warn or keep track of other flying squirrels, sometimes are above the upper limits of frequencies heard by human ears. At CROW, an infant southern flying squirrel was admitted to the clinic from Estero on September 25. The young squirrel was found on a pool deck and was covered in ants. Upon admittance to the hospital, the squirrel weighed just 12 grams, and its eyes were still closed. Veterinary staff noted the squirrel to be hypothermic and that it had a depressed mentation. There were no ant bites noticed on the squirrel. Dr. Robin Bast, CROWs staff veterinarian, explained depressed mentation. Normal babies are active, alert, and often vocalizing to alert the parent to their need for food, she said. This baby was cold, laying in one place and only moved when touched. In other words, this is depressed compared to normal activity level and neurologic status. The squirrel was given fluids and an oral sugar source. Once the squirrel received the sugar source, its mentation immediately improved, leading the veterinary staff to believe it was hypoglycemic (low blood glucose). In this case, we gave a small amount of Manuka honey orally since we stock it for other reasons namely wound care. Other options for an oral sugar source include a dextrose solution or Karo syrup, said Dr. Bast. Within five minutes after being given a supplemental heat source and a small amount of honey orally, the baby perked up and was moving around more on its own. After it warmed up, we gave it subcutaneous fluids to help with rehydration, and started it on a feeding schedule. Rehabilitation staff noted that the squirrel immediately began suckling when they attempted to nipple feed it later in the day. Since admission, the squirrel has continued to eat well. It has gained 4.6 grams in weight, has opened its eyes and continues to grow toward release weight. We release the flying squirrels around 60 to 80 grams or approximately 20 weeks of age, said Dr. Bast. In order to be cleared for the release, they must be climbing well in an outside enclosure and eating dry diet entirely on their own. The baby patient is nearing an ounce in weight, and will need more care and size before the challenges of the wild. The squirrels most recent weight was 20 grams, so it still has a lot of growing up to do, but continues to do well, concluded Dr. Bast.

The next day, the couples find was confirmed by an Island Inn shell tour guide, who instructed them to go to the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum for a photo. (I was) helping my wife look for small shells for crafting, (and) this shell caught my eye in three feet of water, just offshore, said Ronald.

Whether scientists are working in shallow areas or trying not to disturb the wildlife they are studying, kayaks and paddleboards have their benefits. Last year, a group of biologists traveled via stand up paddleboard to look for smalltooth sawfish in and around San Carlos Bay. The habitat use of these creatures is not well understood, and sightings are rare, so every sighting can provide new and useful information. Standing up on a paddleboard creates minimal disturbance and provides a clear view into the water, so it is an excellent position for spotting marine life. If you are out paddling and you spot a smalltooth sawfish, note the date and time, the approximate length, the water depth, location and any other details you observe this can be contributed to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions ongoing study. At Sanibel Sea School, the sand dollar research team uses paddleboards to transport equipment through shallow water. The work takes place primarily on sandbars, and heavy dive gear is required. The paddleboard also offers a perfect floating work surface to measure the organisms and record data. Researchers on the Pacific coast have used cameras mounted under kayaks to capture footage of juvenile great white sharks close to shore. The videos allow them to identify the sharks based on specific body markings, record multiple sightings, and learn about the sharks behaviors and movement patterns. If you would like to learn about more opportunities to participate in paddle-based citizen science projects, stay tuned for an upcoming column on that topic. Ocean Tribe Paddlers is a club that helps the Southwest Florida paddling community better explore, enjoy and understand the ocean.

21 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 19, 2018 Sheryl Favorite from Sylvania, Ohio found her third Chinese alphabet cone while vacationing on Sanibel. Favorite found the shell in front of Casa Ybel Resort where she stays each year. She considered not vacationing this year due to red tide, although she now believes her decision to come for her normal three weeks was rewarded with another rare find. Favorite has found alphabet cones every year for the last three years. Shell Found Sheryl Favorite photo provided Tasting Partners Return For SCCFs Wines In The WildCatering by Leslie Adams and Sweet Melissas Caf are returning as Food Tasting Partners for the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) fundraiser, Wines in the Wild, scheduled for Friday, November 9.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 19, 201822 The Community HouseThe Peanutby Resident Chef Jarred HarrisPeanuts, also known as goobers or the groundnut, are a staple food source globally. But did you know that the peanut is not really a nut? Its actually a legume, a member of the pea family and related to soybeans, chickpeas and lentils. Peanuts originated in South America where they have existed for thousands of years. The peanut played a very important role in the diet of the Aztecs, Incans and other native tribes throughout South America. The Spanish and Portuguese explorers discovered peanuts growing in the New World and brought peanut seeds with them on their voyages to Africa and Asia. The peanuts flourished on both continents and were incorporated into many traditional food cultures throughout. Because the peanut was considered a sacred food, they were placed aboard African slave ships traveling to North America during the beginning of the slave trade. This is how they were first introduced into the southern regions of the United States. During the 19th century, peanuts gained popularity in the U.S. because of the efforts of African-American botanist named George Washington Carver and a physician in St. Louis, Missouri, who created a ground up paste made from peanuts and prescribed it to his patients. While he may not have actually invented peanut butter, since peanut paste had been used by many cultures for centuries before, the paste gained popularity and soon became known as peanut butter. Here is an interesting peanut recipe to try: Papaya and Peanut Salad Ingredients 1 large papaya, about 1 pounds (skin removed and thinly sliced) small nappa cabbage (shredded) 2 carrots (shredded) bunch mint (roughly chopped) 1 red onion (thinly sliced) 8 ozs. cherry tomatoes (halved) 4 ozs. green beans (sliced) 8 ozs. unsalted peanuts (roasted) Dressing 3 tblsp. fish sauce 3 tblsp. rice wine vinegar 1 tsp. sesame oil 1 lime (juiced) 2 tblsp. palm sugar or brown sugar 1 clove of garlic (minced) 1 serrano pepper (seeded and finely chopped) Method To make the dressing: Place all the ingredients in the bowl and mix until well blended. To assemble the salad: Place all the vegetables in a bowl, then place the peanuts on top of the vegetables. Pour the dressing over the peanuts and toss the salad. Resident Chef Jarred Harris heads the Culinary Education Center at The Community House on Sanibel.

Adult Programs At Sea SchoolOn November 2, Sanibel Sea School will launch its first session of adult programs for the 2018-19 season, called Sanibel Sea School Lifers. The organizations adult offerings have been completely restructured this year, and will offer something for everyone. There will be boat trips, guest speakers, social events, documentary screenings and other offerings. We believe that learning is at its best when it is enjoyable, locally and culturally relevant, and tied to meaningful experiences, said Director of Education Shannon Stainken. The programs will be divided into three series fall, winter and spring. Each will have a theme, and there will be a variety of learning opportunities related to that theme. First up is Fisheries Management. We live in an area with a rich fishing history, and both commercial and recreational fishermen are affected by the management choices we make, so this topic is very interesting and applicable, said Stainken, who explained that, while the topic should be taken seriously, the learning will be fun. We planned an evening of Fish Bingo, screenings of some of our all-time favorite documentaries, and a fly tying workshop, because we thought these were things our community could really look forward to. We hope everyone will come out and join us. Sanibel Sea School Lifers Fall Schedule: November 2 (9 a.m. to noon): Boat Excursion with Doc Bruce Save Our Fish; November 9 (7 to 9 p.m.): Film & Discussion Night The End of the Line; November 16 (4 to 6 p.m.): Social Event Fish Bingo; November 28 (7 to 9 p.m.): Fly Fishing Films & Discussion Fly Fishing in the Anthropocene & Select Shorts November 30 (4 to 6 p.m.): Guest Lecture Dr. Ross Boucek from Bonefish & Tarpon Trust; December 14 (7 to 9 p.m.): Fly Tying Workshop with Local Notaries; December 7: Ocean Ornament Making during Sanibel Luminary Festival; no charge. Most scheduled programs are $20 per person and do not require advance registration, but there are some exceptions. Sanibel Sea School will also offer weekly boat trips in November and December.

The exhibit encourages visitors to touch and interact with the pieces in the exhibit. Last season, BIG ARTS hosted its own touch show, Please Touch The Art, in the Founders Gallery, juried by the curator of the Naples Art Association Jack OBrian. It was pleasure working with Jack last year on our touch show, said Huff. I was thrilled when he reciprocated and asked me to jury their touch show. Its great to get off the island and work with fellow arts organizations in Southwest Florida. Huff was on hand for the award ceremony during the opening night reception for the exhibit held on September 28 at the Naples Art Association. This was a fantastic opportunity to reach out and meet new exciting artists that havent yet made their way north to Sanibel, she said. Its also a fantastic opportunity for us to reach new people off the island and let them know about some of the amazing artists and exhibitions we have at BIG ARTS this season. Jurying shows is just one of the ways BIG ARTS looks to reach out and partner up with other regional artists and art associations in Southwest Florida and beyond.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 19, 201828 BIG ARTS Ethics Film SeriesIncendiesby Ron GreenOn Wednesday, October 24 at 12:30 p.m., the Island Cinema will show Incendies, the second film in this years BIG ARTS Ethics Film Series. The film runs 131 minutes. After the movie, a discussion will take place at the cinema. Other films in the series will be announced prior to the weekly showing. Incendies is a 2010 historical drama directed by Denis Villeneuve and based on the play of the same name by Wajdi Mouawad. It stars Lubna Azabal as Nawal Marwan, a refugee from the Lebanon civil war, residing in Montreal. When Nawal suddenly dies, her grown twins, Jeanne (Mlissa DsormeauxPoulin) and Simon (Maxim Gaudette), are sent on a journey to the Middle East in search of their tangled roots. What they learn about their mothers unknown previous life and their family history is shocking. While most films reflect the ethical values of the world they present, only a select few films present sharp and not easily resolved conflicts between competing ethical values. Each of the four films in this series asks its leading characters and viewers, In view of the values in conflict at the center of this story, what is the right thing to do? Among the ethical questions raised by Incendies : Are there limits to a mothers love? and Can love transcend ethics? Should it? Wednesdays discussion will be led by Ronald M. Green, Sanibel resident and professor emeritus for the study of ethics and human values at Dartmouth College. Tickets are $7 available at BIG ARTS or on the day of the film at Island Cinema, located at 535 Tarpon Bay Road in Baileys Center. image provided Poets Corner selected by Hannah Star RogersSand Fairies For EJby Hannah Star RogersAs soon as the waves receded, the tidal faires appeared and moved first to one pale rock and then another, exploring Barnacles with tiny hands and growing quicker as they tried the dark doors of shells, snatching back damp fingers from the orange tongues of molluscs, taking shelter in the dunes under undulating seagrass towers, shimming up for a view of the moon.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 19, 201830 SUN Book ReviewThe Good Sonby Di SaggauI read about The Good Son by You-Jeong Jeong in a recent issue of Entertainment Weekly It definitely caught my attention because it is Jeongs first novel to be translated into English. She is South Koreas preeminent author of psychological thrillers, and now it has arrived here. Its an ingeniously twisted mother-son saga that keeps your heart pumping and then breaks it. With great precision and unflinching bluntness, Jeong takes readers into the mind of her tormented main character, Yu-jin, a young man with a faulty memory and some very dark secrets. The story is original, unpredictable and a shocker. It asks the question, who can you trust if you cant trust yourself? Early one morning, 25-year-old Yu-jin wakes up smelling a strange metallic odor and receives a phone call from his brother asking if everythings okay at home. He discovers he missed a call from their mother during the night. Yu-jin soon finds her murdered body, at the bottom of the stairs of their duplex in Seoul, lying in a pool of blood. Having suffered from seizures for most of his life, he cant remember much about what occurred the night before. All he has is a faint impression of his mother calling his name. But why was she calling him for help or begging for her life? Yu-jin begins a frantic three-day search to try and uncover what happened that night. He finally learns the truth about himself and his family. The Good Son explores the mysteries of mind and memory, and the twisted relationship between a mother and son. A protagonist whose memory loss coincides with the gruesome discovery of his mother, makes this crime fiction story well worth reading. Yu-jin has lost time and tries to put all the pieces back together. The story takes many directions and leads the reader somewhere never expected. I highly recommend The Good Son for the seasoned crime reader who doesnt mind bloody scenes and appreciates a head-on, no-holds-barred candid story that sends chills down ones spine. I hope a future translation of Jeongs work comes our way soon. School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Readers, As a former director of a very large, urban public school gifted program, I worked diligently to provide the gifted students with the variety of resources needed for their educational experiences. And as a parent of gifted children, I have first-hand knowledge of their social and emotional needs as well. Working with and parenting a gifted child is both exhilarating, frustrating and exhausting. Looking from the outside in, it might seem wonderful to have a 3-yearold who reads fluently or not to have to help your child with their homework, but there are other challenges. Does this sound like a child you know? The 7-year-old who wants to learn algebra, and is quite capable, but cant remember to bring home her spelling book? Is it the child who writes amazing stories, perhaps books, but refuses to write his five-paragraph essay homework? Gifted people and parents of gifted children often feel isolated and misunderstood, and this can have detrimental effects on mental and emotional well-being. Parenting the gifted often brings unusual challenges including social/emotional and educational concerns. Approximately 8 percent of gifted individuals are also Twice Exceptional or 2E children, those who are gifted and learning disabled at the same time. These additional challenges often confound gifted identification and complicate gifted education. Community resources for parents of the gifted as well as gifted students themselves are few in most areas, however there are some great online resources. This fall, there is an opportunity to participate in online support groups through SENG, (Supporting Emotional Needs of the Gifted), an association dedicated to meeting the social and emotional needs of the gifted and their families although there is a fee involved. You may contact them at email@example.com or 844-488-SENG. Other excellent online resources include Hoagies Gifted Education Page, the all-things-gifted site, full of resources, articles, books and links to help and support parents, teachers, and gifted children alike, or visit www. hoagiesgifted.org. Another premier association for the gifted is the NAGC (National Association for Gifted Children) at www.nagc.org/ about-nagc. NAGCs mission is to support those who enhance the growth and development of gifted and talented children through education, advocacy, community building and research. We aim to help parents and families, K-12 education professionals including support service personnel, and members of the research and higher education community who work to help gifted and talented children as they strive to achieve their personal best and contribute to their communities. Membership in this organization includes participation in up to three of their networks or special interest groups such as assessment, STEM, creativity and many other topics. I urge you to get involved with any or all of these groups. Their information is evidence (research) based, and you will find a sense of community that may dispel that feeling of aloneness that many parents of the gifted and the gifted themselves experience. Shelley Greggs is adjunct faculty at Florida SouthWestern State College, where she teaches psychology and education courses. She is also a nationally certified school psychologist and consultant for School Consultation Services, a private educational consulting company.

The award, presented by Elisha Baird, community program director for Habitat for Humanity, was accepted by Zonta Club President Barbara Beran. We are so happy and proud to support and be a part of the Women Build program and to be able to empower women through affordable home ownership, said Beran. Habitats Women Build project involves building and rehabilitating houses to provide safe, low-cost homes for Lee County residents who qualify within certain guidelines; Zontas sponsorship for the past three years has helped provide homes for female heads of household and their children. In addition to monetary grants, Zonta supports the Women Build program in Lee County through hands-on service. Zonta volunteers provide physical labor at various locations, accomplishing such tasks as exterior and interior painting and laying flooring, while working under the guidance of construction professionals and alongside other volunteers and future Habitat homeowners. The Zonta Club of Sanibel Captiva was also recognized at Zontas District 11 Conference, held from September 28 to 30 at the Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort & Spa, receiving outstanding performance awards for club activity and initiative as well as for service and advocacy. Our club always strives to do its best to bring the problems women face to the attention of the public and to help women and children in need, added Beran. In fact, the successful relationship between Zonta of Sanibel Captiva and Habitats Women Build program has led to Women Build being named Zonta District 11 Project for 2018-19. District 11 is composed of the southeastern United States Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North and South Carolina and Tennessee as well as the Bahamas, Puerto Rico and the British Virgin Islands.

37 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 19, 2018Chamber Adds Director Of TechnologyThe Sanibel & Captiva Islands Chamber of Commerce welcomed Cory Mills to its team as director of technology and visitor experience, a reinvented position born out of changes coming to the visitors center. Renovations are under way at the chamber visitors center, which welcomes more than 100,000 people each year, to introduce modern technology for todays traveler while keeping its vibrant coastal feel. The project includes complete interior renovations of the ground floor and digital displays that can change dynamically versus static displays. Mills will assist visitors and members with the technology. He will be communicating with our members, so they get the most out of the new displays, and lending a hand as needed to our visitors who will have an enhanced experience at our visitors center, said Chamber President John Lai. We are pleased to have him join our team. Mills is a Florida native, growing up on his familys multi-acre land in Lakeland. In his spare time, he enjoys boating and activities with his family. I have visited the islands, but my wife grew up spending summers on Sanibel, said Mills. So, I know its a special place and look forward to getting to know the islands and members better. Mills is excited about the upgrades. It will provide more options for our visitors, including quick ideas for day trippers, he said. Our members will have more detailed data on exposure and flexibility for short-term promotions. Mills will also oversee the many volunteers it takes to run the visitors center 365 days a year. A temporary visitors center is located in the parking lot at 1159 Causeway Road, with renovations scheduled to be completed in early November. The public is invited to a ribbon cutting, planned for Luminary Night, December 7. For more information, visit www. sanibel-captiva.org or call 472-1080. Cory Mills photo providedAssistant Manager Hired For Refuge StoreCarrie Harmon recently accepted the full-time position as assistant manager for the Refuge Nature Store operated by the Ding Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge (DDWS) at the JN Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge. She, along with Chris Galloway, serve as support staff for store manager Ann-Marie Wildman. A native of Casper, Wyoming, Harmon moved to Sanibel from Fort Collins, Colorado with her then-fianc Paul in August 2017, about two weeks before Hurricane Irma hit. The two married on September 18, 2018. We gave out stainless steel straws as wedding favors and asked our guests, in lieu of gifts, to make a donation to CROW or Coastal Keepers, said Harmon. We had a dollar donation dance to benefit the refuge planned for our reception but we were unable to have it due to rain. Harmon works part-time for the Condominiums Association of Sanibel Island and volunteers her time to a number of charitable events, including DDWS Go Wild for Ding fundraiser in February and Ding Darling & Doc Fords Tarpon Tournament in May. We went to the Nature Store holiday shopping event in 2017 and not only took care of all of our Christmas shopping but also befriended many of the society and refuge employees, said Harmon. The evident passion and vibrancy of everyone involved with the refuge and the legacy of Ding inspired us to find ways to give back to the refuge and help in whatever way we could. Driving through the refuge and kayaking the trail in Tarpon Bay are two of the things we make a point to do with visiting friends and family. Carries enthusiasm and energy have already proved invaluable in the Nature Store and beyond, said Wildman. She has quickly become an asset to the entire Ding team.

Superior InteriorsWarm Weather Design Trendsby Jeanie TinchThis season creates an opportunity to transform a homes interior into an atmosphere of inspiration and comfort by utilizing current home interior trends. Bring the good vibes of summer inside while ditching the heat. Adding plants into the home not only adds a pop of natural green but can improve emotional health as well. Adding foliage, especially in rooms where you spend most of your time, can improve mood by lowering stress levels and promoting soothing thoughts. Perfect for summer. Gold-colored accents can make the living room, bedroom or entryway feel warm and inviting. Like the inviting hue of a shining summer sun, notes of gold can help one feel at ease when relaxing at home. Used in excess, gold can quickly become gaudy but when used to embolden more prominent color choices, it adds depth and character. Bring the beach home without the sand by adding gold accents alongside seafoam green and dark blues. This can create a sensation of light shimmering on the cresting waves of a calm ocean. Theres no reason why positivity shouldnt trickle into the office. Our warm weather offers a chance to throw open the windows and let in some fresh air to promote creativity and motivation. Filling the space with inspirational quotes, productivity accessories and desk plants can help to keep an eye on the prize. Bringing a desk away from the wall and into the center of the room, instantly creates a space that feels open and inviting a place where productivity is at its highest. Incorporating pastels is a surefire way to lighten up a room. According to The Cut, pale pink also called blush, delicate pink, or millennial pink first became widely used in 2012 and has only grown in popularity. Unlike more intense shades of pink, this comforting hue is gender neutral and pairs well with blues, grays and purples. This season, consider adding pale pink with Pantones color of the year ultraviolet. Pale pink with darker accents adds depth and visual interest, creating a calming atmosphere. Remember those vintage photos of your grandparents sitting poolside in their brightly colored swimwear and sunglasses? Channeling those groovy vibes can be done by adding faux vintage lamps, chairs and tables. Bring back the good old days by adding a few tropical-themed pieces inspired by citrus fruits and birds of paradise. Jeanie Tinch is an interior designer on Sanibel/Captiva Islands. She can be reached at email@example.com. Recycle For Sight Program Shows IncreaseThe Sanibel Captiva Lions Club reports a strong collection of eyeglasses in September, as part of its Recycle for Sight Program. The month exceeded July and a slow August with a total of 338 items collected. We are very pleased with the number and thank our community for stepping up in this cause, said Lion Rick Wagner.

Hemstead doesnt just talk the talk, she exemplifies the extraordinary leadership qualities of a dedicated Rotarian who, as she explained it, dreams of a better world for everyone, and knows how Rotary is helping to achieve this. Hemstead joined Rotary in 2006, after attending one of our Rotary District Foundation seminars and realized the scope of what Rotary does. The Rotary Foundation is a nonprofit that supports the efforts of Rotary International to achieve world understanding and peace through international humanitarian, educational and cultural exchanges. Hemstead jumped right in after joining the Bonita Springs Rotary Club. She had a passion for global service. She took on leadership roles for some of her clubs global grant initiatives. Becoming the club president broadened her opportunity to make a difference in supporting service projects that could make a better world. She went on to serve at district level as global grants chair, inspiring Rotary clubs to take their dreams of making this world a better place and doing something about it, one project at a time. She helped in finding financial support and Rotary District and Rotary International matching grant funds to get these projects done with successful outcomes. Her inspiration and passion for her job came from observing firsthand needs of people she came across in her travels, especially in Central and South America. Hemstead is inspired by the district Rotary clubs that are working on global water projects, school construction projects in Haiti and the Caribbean, literacy programs in the states and abroad. Rotarys premier worldwide health initiative is polio eradication. This program started in 1988 with a reported 350,000 cases at the time, to reports of only 13 cases around the world today. October 24 is World Polio Day. Her inspiration comes from seeing outcomes of dreams like those of the Rotary Wheelchair Foundation, providing wheelchairs to those in need, no matter where they live. The Wheelchair Foundation has been able to deliver more than 895,000 plus wheelchairs worldwide. Rotarians have changed hundreds of thousands of lives with the gift of mobility. She is inspired by the Rotarians who helped Bonita Springs clean up, restore and renovate homes after Hurricane Irma. Our Rotary District is already making plans to help in the Panhandle after Hurricane Michael. Be the Inspiration is Rotarys motto for the year. Governor Sandra Hemstead is an inspiration. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets Friday mornings at 7 a.m. at The Dunes Golf & Tennis Club. Guests are welcome. Sandra Hemstead photo provided
39 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 19, 2018 From page 26Gallery Managerhow to share Sanibels art scene with the rest of the Southwest Florida community said BIG ARTS Executive Director Lee Ellen Harder. BIG ARTS 2018-19 Fine Arts season features and host of talented artists from Lee County including Todd Andrew Babb, Barbara Yoemans, Judith Brust and Mary Sullivan Voytek. On March 7, BIG ARTS will also be hosting an art gallery trip for Sanibel and Captiva residents who will stop for lunch at The Edison, have refreshments on the bus and visit some of the finest galleries in the area: Marcus Jansens Unit A, DAAS Co-Op, Alliance for the Arts and The Bob Rauschenberg Gallery at FSW. Tourism Discussed At Chamber LuncheonSanibel & Captiva Islands Chamber of Commerce held its monthly business luncheon on October 9 at the Captiva Island Yacht Club. Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau Executive Director Tamara Pigott was the guest speaker. Pigott directs the VCB staff to effectively market the county, leverages tourist tax fund expenditures and resources, and evaluates and develops all market segments. She opened her presentation with the results of the 2018 Island Hopper Songwriter Fest, which featured a new mobile app and was advertised for the first time in the Tampa and Miami areas. Pigott briefly addressed the OneLee campaign to encourage local shopping, but focused on red tide recovery plans. The VCB has received two grants to be used for advertising in The New York Times, the Southwest Florida region and through a specialized Google campaign. The water crisis action plan also includes a lineup of press conferences and paid media. Its a big plan, but we are ready to go when given the green light. We just need a little cooperation from Mather Nature, said Pigott, who reported tourist tax revenue is up by 6.8 percent for the fiscal year due to a strong fourth quarter in 2017. August revenue is reportedly down by 16.4 percent. Chamber members were invited to attend the VCBs annual sales and marketing meeting on Thursday, November 15 at the Westin Cape Coral Resort, hosted in conjunction with the Tourist Development Council meeting, which begins at 9 a.m. Vector & Ink sponsored the luncheon, which was highlighted by the unveiling of the 2019 visitors guide cover featuring a photograph by Rob Hoovis, owner of Old Sparky Productions. The visitors guide, published by Vector & Ink, will be available in late January at the chamber visitors center. More than 120,000 copies are distributed each year. We are very proud of the visitors guide and congratulate Rob (Hoovis) on his winning photograph, said John Lai, chamber president. It will be seen by thousands of people, who will pick it up and learn about our islands. The next luncheon will be on Tuesday, November 13 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at The Community House, with catering by Sanibel Catering Company. Community Housing and Resources (CHR) Executive Director Melissa Rice will be the guest speaker. Baileys General Store is the sponsor.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 19, 201840 Its not uncommon to panic under extreme pressure. And theres no pressure like when a loved one is very sick or near death. Theres a temptation to tie up loose ends and to direct our financial advisors and attorneys to make last minute adjustments before its too late. Resist that temptation, especially if youve recently updated your planning. Ive seen families make irrational decisions that can be attributed to a lack of understanding about their estate plan. Even though they may have revocable living trusts, for example, they title everything in Pay on Death or Transfer on Death accounts. This is absolutely the wrong thing to do. Most trusts have continuing trusts, either for the surviving spouse or sometimes for the children or even grandchildren. By transferring assets to Pay on Death accounts defeats all of the estate protections and tax planning thought that went into the creation of the documents. Sometimes panicked families will collapse trusts before the sick spouse dies and put everything in the well spouses name. As I pointed out in the preceding paragraph, doing this will likely defeat the tax planning and asset protection features of the estate plan that was put into place. Other times families will reposition assets between the trusts just before the sick spouse dies. This can also lead to problems related to capital gains taxes. Normally, when a person dies holding appreciated assets, the assets receive a step up in tax cost basis, equal to the date of death value. If I purchased Coca Cola Company stock at $1/share and when I died it was worth $10/share, then my beneficiaries will normally inherit the stock at the step-up value of $10/share. If they sold it shortly after my death for $10/share, then the capital gains tax that would have been realized had I sold the stock the day before my death disappears. But if the family tries to transfer appreciated assets into a dying persons name in an effort to receive the step-up in tax cost basis, they have an unpleasant surprise. The tax law anticipates people trying to take advantage, so theres a rule that disallows step-up if the asset was transferred within one year of death. So making last minute changes here could actually do harm to the family. Should a family therefore not worry about last minute planning if a loved one is gravely ill? Certainly if that persons documents havent been updated in quite some time, it makes sense to review them with competent counsel. But the family would be wise to carefully think through any choices that they have, and consider the time it would normally take to implement those choices successfully. If the health and mental stability of the sick person isnt expected to hold out for long, then it makes sense to triage the strategies in such a way as to take care of the most important things first. Another important thought in late-stage planning includes the fact that any significant changes might be subject to challenge. If a sick person suddenly disinherits someone in favor of another family member, undue influence and competency issues might arise. If this is a possibility, the family might want to ask attending physicians for statements regarding the sick persons competency, carefully document all of the medications that are being administered (with an eye towards whether any might affect decision making) and take steps to ensure that the sick person visits alone with counsel rather than having family members who might be or become beneficiaries present at the meetings. Dealing with the loss of a loved one is almost always stressful. No one wants to compound the stress by having to deal with legal, tax and financial issues at the end of life. The best way to avoid that problem is to take care of things well ahead of time. But if you or a loved one find yourself in this situation, be very careful that you dont cause more harm than you solve. 2018 Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at www.sbshlaw.com.

The Business Citizenship Award for businesses with up to 50 employees was presented to Edison National Bank/Bank of the Islands for its financial, volunteer and active involvement in community organizations and programs that create a better quality of business and civic life in Lee County. In a prepared statement, the program organizers shared that the bank was chosen for recognition because it is invested in the success and well-being of its customers and community. In its 20 years, the bank has given in excess of $2.5 million in sponsorships, donations and support to the community. Bank leadership gives generously of their personal time, talents and resources to benefit those in need through local nonprofits, serving as leaders who inspire other businesses, employees and customers. The award was accepted by bank President Robbie Roepstorff and CEO Geoffrey W. Roepstorff. They attended the event with staff members as well as guests including Reverend and Mrs. Jon Zehnder of St. Michaels Lutheran Church. To call yourself a community bank, you really have to be part of the fabric of the community, said Robbie Roepstorff in a video presentation during the event. That means giving back to the community that gives to you. Thats been our philosophy from day one.

Knicks Dump Noah, But Gator Fans Will Recall His NCAA Championshipsby Ed FrankLets roll back the calendar more than a decade to the glory years of University of Florida basketball when the Gators won back-to-back national championships. In 2006 and 2007, Florida won those titles with teams led by Joakim Noah and Al Horford and coached by Billy Donovon, marking the last team to win back-to-back championships. Those memories came to light last week with reports out of New York that the Knicks had dumped Noah after two disappointing and controversial seasons. The bombastic Noah had played nine seasons with the Chicago Bulls who had selected him as the ninth pick in the 2007 draft. Despite his great talent, he was a problem child for the Bulls in his early years. Once, his teammates actually suspended him for a few games after he got into it with one of the coaches. But no one ever doubted his great talent. He was voted NBA Defensive Player of the Year and first team All-NBA in 2014. And his salary climbed from $2.1 million to $13.4 million in his last season with the Bulls. He had begun battling injuries when the Knicks signed him to a four-year, $72 million free-agent deal. His first season with the Knicks ended with a 20-game suspension for a failed drug test a suspension that carried over to the start of the 2017-18 season. He also clashed with former Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek. Unable to regain his job in the starting rotation, Noah averaged just 4.6 points and 7.9 rebounds in 53 games with New York. We shouldnt, however, feel sorry for Noah as the Knicks will be paying him $6.4 million a year annually until 2022. And there are reports that the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Los Angeles Lakers may be interested for his services in backup roles. Meanwhile, his Florida sidekick, Al Horford, has had a distinguished NBA career, nine years with the Atlanta Hawks and two with the Boston Celtics. He will earn approximately $29 million this season with Boston. As for Donovan, the most successful coach in the history of Florida basketball, he has also moved to the NBA as coach of the Oklahoma Thunder. If youre a Florida Gator fan, you will likely never forget those championship years with Noah and Horford. World Series Betting Odds Writing this column at the beginning of this week, the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Milwaukee Brewers were tied 1-1 in the National League Championship Series and the Boston Red Sox and the Houston Astros likewise were tied one game apiece in American League Championship Series. Here were the MLB Future Odds on the World Series as the week began: Houston 8/5 Los Angeles 13/5 Boston 3/1 Milwaukee 5/1 But with Milwaukee winning Game Three over the Dodgers to take a 2-1 game lead, those odds have likely changed.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 19, 201846 Doctor and DieticianThe Problem With Cortisone by Ross Hauser, MD and Marion Hauser, MS, RDA cortisone injection is a conventional treatment for joint pain. But did you know that receiving a cortisone shot is one of the quickest ways to weaken your joint? Cortisone and other steroid injections increase the arthritic rate and have detrimental effects on articular cartilage. Yes, that is correct! Corticosteroids, such as cortisone and prednisone, have adverse effects on joint healing. Corticosteroids inactivate vitamin D, which limits calcium absorption. They also inhibit the release of growth hormones and chondrocytes, the cells that make articular cartilage, which further decreases the ability of the joint to repair. Ultimately, corticosteroids lead to an overall decrease in bone, ligament and tendon strength. The result is a weakened joint, which perpetuates the cycle of increased joint pain and recommendation for more cortisone. Though these injections have played a huge role in pain management, their use should be limited. It is true that steroid injections may reduce pain, but they do so at the cost of destroying tissue. Studies show that even after one steroid injection, cartilage remains impaired. Unfortunately, many people suffering from chronic pain look for quick relief without thinking about the long-term side effects that could occur. For example, athletes often receive cortisone shots in order to continue to play. They then go onto the playing field with their injuries. Because they feel no pain, they play as if the injury does not exist. The athlete is, therefore, causing further injury by playing beyond what the joint is safely capable of handling. The same goes for non-athletes who are just trying to stop the pain in order to perform daily activities. The alternative to cortisone is regenerative injection therapy, like PRP or prolotherapy, which is the opposite of cortisone and make more sense for most chronic pain conditions. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition. Caring Medical Regenerative Medicine Clinics has two locations: one in Oak Park, Illinois, and one in Fort Myers. It was established in 1991 by Ross Hauser, MD, and Marion Hauser, MS, RD. They can be reached at info@ caringmedical.com. From page 1Shell Museumimprovements include modifications to the visitor driveway and parking areas, conversion of some of the existing asphalt to pervious pavers, pedestrian and bicycle access improvements, alterations to the onsite stormwater retention system, and new landscaping. What they are proposing will only enhance the existing number of visitors that they intend to provide these new accommodations for, Gibson told commissioners. The proposed remodeling and additions to the building will add approximately 3,431 square feet to the museum, which will encompass 14,069 total square feet. Although the gross floor area of the building will remain essentially the same, the increase in new conditioned areas primarily due to remodeling and conversion of existing storage areas will provide for new aquarium exhibits, a new lobby and gift shop, new restrooms, and administrative support and service areas on the ground floor, the staff report reads, in part. Commissioner Chuck Ketteman questioned whether the proposed expansion might draw additional visitors to the museum, which might necessitate additional demand for onsite parking. Keith Williams, the citys director of community services, responded that based upon traffic studies, the facility has more than adequate parking. Dorrie Hipschman, executive director of the museum, told commissioners that the renovation and expansion project will break ground as early as we can, estimating that work will begin around the Thanksgiving holiday, with construction completed around May or June. The entire project is estimated to be completed before the end of 2019. We would like to supplement (our shell collection) with an additional collection of live animals, said Hipschman. This proposal really is to take the museum to the next level. We know that people come to Sanibel because of our shells. We also know that nine out of 10 people have no idea that that is a living creature that creates that shell. Our goal, whether theyre in the museum or on the beach, is to change that perception. Resident Claudia Burns asked what impact the project would have on the wetlands surrounding the museums main building. Gibson explained that while the entire site is located within the interior wetlands conservation district, the project will mitigate any impacts by removing fill in developed areas and re-landscaping those areas. There is no net increase, he said. Commission Vice Chair Dirk deWerff recommended approval of the permit, subject to 10 conditions recommended by city staff. The permit was approved by a 5 to 0 vote, with commissioners Richard Johnson and Roger Grogman abstaining due to their involvement with the museums capital campaign committee.

SUN deaRPharmacistEssential Oils To Help You Relax And Sleepby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Readers: One of the most powerful attributes of essential oils is that they contain powerful compounds with constituents in them that promote relaxation. Its fun to experiment with oils because they work. Doctors from around the world have used oils to relax patients prior to surgery, ease depression and anxiety, and impact GABA receptors, which calm us down. Fragrances instead of pills its a novel idea, right?! In one fascinating study, researchers learned that sniffing jasmine essential oil may be as effective as commonly prescribed barbiturates or benzodiazepines when it comes to inducing calm and sleepiness. Essential oils do not pose serious adverse health risks or side effects such as daytime drowsiness, morning hangovers or tolerance withdrawal. Also, unlike OTC sleep aids, they dont induce anticholinergic side effects such as constipation, blurry vision and dry mouth. The easiest way to get essential oils into your blood stream within seconds is to inhale them. Pour a few drops onto the palms of your hands, rub together and inhale deeply. Do this three to five times, then rub your palms onto your neck, or the bottoms of your feet. My favorite way to use essential oils at night is in a diffuser. You can add a few different oils to the diffuser and enjoy better sleep. Here are a few ideas to get you started: Lavender Dreams If theres one, number one proven oil to relax the body and mind, ease melancholy and enhance sleep, its lavender. Combine lavender essential oils with any number of other oils for great sleep. For example, you could mix it with vetiver, frankincense or calendula. My favorite is three drops lavender combined with three drops sandalwood (equal mix) plus one drop bergamot, all in my little diffuser by the bed. I nicknamed it lavender dreams, lol. Sleep Like a Baby Blend Another blend for enhanced sleep and relaxation is four drops clary sage essential oil, four drops ylang-ylang essential oil, four drops Roman chamomile and two drops wild orange (or bergamot). Depending on the size of your diffuser, you may want to use fewer drops. But either way, keep the ratio the same. Clary sage, ylang-ylang and Roman chamomile are wonder ingredients for promoting relaxation and curbing anxiety. Clary sage is especially effective for helping women balance hormones, including fat-storing cortisol, which leads to belly fat. The Knock-Out Blend For when sleep seems like the farthest thing from your mind, and youve been in front of that computer all day with all that circadian-disrupting blue light pouring into your eyeballs, this is the blend I really recommend. Combine three drops each of frankincense, bergamot and sandalwood essential oils. Instead of filling your home with synthetic perfumes that have hundreds of strange artificial chemicals, try natural essential oils.

Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: I have an older brother who takes everything too seriously. How can I get him to lighten up?A: If your brother is the first born in the family, he fits the birth order theory as first borns tend to be very serious and, actually, it would do them good to lighten up. One thing we know is that laughter influences the bodys physiology. It can result in restoration and healing of any physical and emotional wounds your brother may have experienced. Perhaps you could offer to take your brother to a comedy show or funny movie for starters. If he could learn to laugh for one, both his physiological and psychological system will reap long-term positive effects. Get your brother to laugh at himself about his conditions and predicaments, and, as he learns more about the great effects of humor therapy, one laugh can lead to another. He is actually loosening up his solar plexus and receiving self-validation. The greater quality of humor and laughs, the greater quality of sensation and pleasure. What you can hope for is that your brother will catch on, and his humor and laughter can be contagious in helping reduce his seriousness, which will increase his optimal well-being.

Lee County Domestic Animal Services (LCDAS) 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, LCDAS has reduced 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 shelter is open to the public Monday through Saturday at 5600 Banner Drive in Fort Myers. Adoptions are available 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. For information, visit Lee County Domestic Animal Services at www.leegov.com/animalservices or call 533-7387. Daphne ID# A756849 Kimmie ID# A754677 PAWS Of SanibelSonny And CherThis is Sonny and Cher. Some of you may remember them. Three years ago, four kitties, the momma and three kittens were trapped between the Sunset Beach Resort and Lantana condominium on West Gulf Drive. All were adopted (Lana, Tanner, Sonny and Cher) to lovely people. However, Sonny and Chers mom has reached a time in her life when she feels she must move in with family over on Pine Island. Unfortunately, in addition to her granddaughter being allergic, her son operates a business out of his home that is directly on Pine Island Road and the doors are always opening and closing, so its not safe for kitties. These are very special kitties, and need to be together forever. Call Pam at 472-4823 if you can give these sweethearts a new home. Sonny Cher

Top 10 Real Estate SalesCourtesy of Royal Shell Real Estate 55 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 19, 2018 My Stars FOR WEEK OF OCTOBER 22, 2018Aries (March 21 to April 19) A colleague might offer to open a door for you professionally. But before you walk through it, be sure this favor isnt attached to an obligation you might find difficult to discharge. Taurus (April 20 to May 20) Your creativity, your persistence and your reliability could lead to a major career shift. Be sure to use that other Taurean trait, your practicality, when discussing what the job offers. Gemini (May 21 to June 20) A changing situation might require some adjustments you might not have been prepared to make. However, flexibility in this matter could be the best course to follow at this time. Cancer (June 21 to July 22) Youre in a period of fluctuating moods, which is not unusual for the Moon Child. Your emotions stabilize by the 26th. Meanwhile, try to hold off making major decisions until then. Leo (July 23 to August 22) That keen sense of perception helps you hunt down those minute details that others overlook. And, of course, your Leonine ego will accept the expected praise with good grace. Virgo (August 23 to September 22) Be careful not to be confrontational when raising a work-related issue. Better to make a request than a demand. And, of course, be prepared to back up your case with facts. Libra (September 23 to October 22) Your ego might be hurt when a colleague turns down your offer to help. But accept it as a rejection of your offer, not of you. A friend from the past could re-emerge by weeks end. Scorpio (October 23 to November 21) A flow of positive energy turns a work project you didnt want to do into something you actually love doing. Now, take that attitude into your social, intimate life and enjoy what follows. Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21) Working hard to meet your professional goals is fine. But dont neglect your private life, especially where it concerns your more cherished relationships. Capricorn (December 22 to January 19) Patience remains the key word in dealing with an emotionally sensitive situation involving a close friend or family member. Help comes your way by weeks end. Aquarius (January 20 to February 18) With new information coming in, its a good time to rethink some of your goals without taking suggestions from others, no matter how well-meaning they might be. Pisces (February 19 to March 20) Making progress on your project is relatively easy in the early part of the week. A problem could arise midweek. But all goes swimmingly once its resolved. Born This Week: Holding fast to your principles, no matter what, inspires others to follow your example. It was 17th-century French author Francois de La Rochefoucauld who made the following sage observation: Some people with great virtues are disagreeable, while others with great vices are delightful. If you wanted to dig to the center of the earth, youd have to go down about 4,000 miles. If youre a fan of fishing, heres a cautionary tale regarding the weather: A 48-year-old Colombian man named Felipe Ortiz (for reasons unknown) decided to go out fishing in a raging storm. He cast his line into a strong wind, but the line blew back and caused the baited hook to lodge in his throat, killing him. Are you a dipsomaniac? The root of the word is from the Greek dipso, meaning thirst and were all familiar with the mania part. Dipsomaniac is just a fancy name for a drunk. Feeling pressed by ever-increasing postage rates? Well, consider this: To send mail by Pony Express originally cost $5 per ounce the equivalent of more than $150 in todays dollars. At one time the game of checkers was known as chess for ladies. Unless youre a professional dairy farmer who milks cows on a daily basis, its unlikely that youre aware of the fact that it takes, on average, 350 squirts to get a gallon of milk. Jewelry lovers, pay attention: Oysters arent the only creatures with the capability to make pearls. Pearls can come from any mollusk that makes a shell, including mussels, clams, conchs and even land snails. I like an escalator because an escalator can never break, it can only become stairs. There would never be an escalator temporarily out of order sign, only an escalator temporarily stairs. Sorry for the convenience.
