We have an amazing lineup of restaurants this year, said Linda Estep, executive director for CROW.

The 37th edition of Taste of the Islands will feature Blue Giraffe, The Bubble Room, The Clam Shack, Doc Fords Rum Bar & Grille, Il Cielo, The Jac Island Bar & Grille, Matzaluna, Sandollar, Sanibel Deli & Coffee Factory, Sanibel Fish House, Shima Japanese Steakhouse, Thistle Lodge and The Timbers.

According to Mensch, it is well accepted that there is a small octopus that lives in the region called the Atlantic pygmy octopus (Octopus joubini) which lays small eggs from which planktonic (swimming) babies hatch. It is also well accepted that there is another small octopus species that lives here which looks extremely similar to Octopus joubini, but lays relatively large eggs from which crawling babies hatch. Earlier this year, Mensch collected an octopus specimen from a Sanibel beach following a storm. A second octopus specimen which was nicknamed octopup later hatched from an egg laid by the first specimen. The total size of the first animal was somewhere between a lemon and lime, she said. We estimate the age was between six to nine months. The octopup did not grow quite so large, so it was probably closer to a lime in size. Octopuses were being studied by Mensch in part to determine if they would make a suitable species for display at the museum following an extensive renovation and expansion project when completed late next year. The first octopus was cared for at the continued on page 8 The adult female octopus, under observation at the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum, crawling across a temporary observation tank Restaurant Lineup For Taste Of The Islands The adult female octopus shows its oral surface and arm suckers while in a temporary observation photos by Rebecca Mensch FALL BACKDaylight Saving Time Ends Sunday

Tumblers come in two colors photo provided CROW Receives New Sea Turtle Recovery TankIn March, the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) received a grant for $17,843 from the Florida Sea Turtle Grants Program, which is funded by the sales of the sea turtle specialty license plate. CROW received the grant to support a sea turtle recovery tank, which will benefit Florida sea turtles. The newly designed fiberglass tank, which is currently being installed, also features an improved filtration system. CROW was chosen for the award through a competitive application process that is open to coastal county governments, educational institutions and Floridabased nonprofit groups striving to improve the livelihood of sea turtles and conserve Florida habitats. Launched in 1996, the Helping Sea Turtles Survive specialty license plate raises money for two important programs that benefit Florida sea turtles the Florida Wildlife Conservation Commissions Marine Turtle Protection Program and the Sea Turtle Grants Program, which distributes money back to the local level for turtle conservation projects. The sea turtle plate is currently the number two overall selling specialty tag in Florida, second only to the University of Florida specialty plate, making it the number one environmental specialty plate. Its rewarding to know that so many people share our concern for Floridas sea turtles, said David Godfrey, Sea Turtle Conservancy executive director. What we do in this state has a dramatic impact on sea turtle populations around the world. By purchasing the sea turtle specialty plate, Floridians are voluntarily funding important programs to save these amazing creatures.

JOSEPH EDWARD KELLEYJoseph Edward Kelley, 91, died peacefully on Sunday, October 28 in Clearwater, Florida after a brief illness. He spent his final month surrounded by his family. Joe was born in Belmont, Massachusetts in 1927, served in the U.S. Navy, graduated from Georgetown University and was a volunteer firefighter. He spent most of his career as an advertising executive in New York City. He married his wife Margaret Peggy Peters, now deceased, in 1952, and they raised four children. Joe and Peggy spent most of their married life in Mount Kisco, New York. They moved to Sanibel in 1987, where Joe, in semi-retirement, was a real estate agent, served on the board of the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge and was active in the local Catholic church. They moved to Palm Harbor in 2000, where Joe volunteered at St. Lukes Catholic Church and at Suncoast Hospice. Joe is survived by his brother and sister-in-law Dan and Lillian Kelley and his sister Betsy Coakley; his children, Linda McHugh, Kevin Kelley, Laura Arsenault and David Kelley and their spouses Steve McHugh, Patricia Kelley, Steve Arsenault and Victor Kimble; grandchildren Ben McHugh, Bryan McHugh and his wife Kristina, Phil Leopardi and his wife DeeDra, Sean, Eric and Adam Arsenault and Ryan Kelley; great-grandchildren Jaxon Leopardi and Cash and Cannon McHugh.

OBITUARY Russian Vocal Ensemble Returns November 18The Russian vocal ensemble ChoRuss will return to St. Michael & All Angels Episcopal Church for its third appearance at 5 p.m. on Sunday, November 18 in the church Sanctuary. The ensemble consists of professional musicians singing Russian traditional and spiritual music. According to Dmitri Petrov, director and tenor of the group, the ensemble specializes in sacred repertoire of the 19th and 20th centuries that accompanies worship in the Russian Orthodox Church. The repertoire is sung a cappella in the ancient Orthodox style. The program features music by Russian composers little known in the west, including Dmitry Bortniansky, Pavel Chesnokov and Alexander Arkhangelsky. The program also includes Russian folk songs and Christmas carols. ChoRuss is currently on a 20-concert American tour, with in-concert or worship service performances in Florida, Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. The singers, conducted by Petrov, are all conservatory-trained, professional soloists. The concert is free and open to the public. Tickets are not required. Freewill donations will be accepted. A meet the artists reception, with light refreshments, will follow the concert in the parish hall. The groups CD, Russian Spiritual and Folk Songs will be available for purchase during the reception.

Afternoon Of Song And Dance At Sanibel ChurchThe Fort Myers Symphonic Mastersingers Chamber Chorus, under the direction of Artistic Director Jeff Faux, will open the groups 18th season with Shall We Dance, an afternoon of singing and dancing in collaboration with dancers from the M&N Dance Studio. The concert will be held at Sanibel Community Church on Sunday, November 11 beginning at 3 p.m. Admission is free, and a goodwill offering will be taken during the performance. Music for the performance will include familiar Broadway show tunes, contemporary choral pieces with dance themes, and the Brahms Liebeslieder Waltzes. Dancers from M&N Dance Studio in Fort Myers will accompany many of these numbers with waltzes, tangos and other dances. In addition, there will be a demonstration of dance steps and a time for audience participation. We like to add some different programming to our season schedule. It seemed that combining our talents with dancers was a natural fit, said Faux. Choral music and dance are unique in that these forms of expression use only the human body to communicate. This concert will combine these two art forms in a unique and fascinating way that will be inspiring and entertaining to our audience. Martin Cardoso of M&N Dance Studio said, This is a wonderful opportunity for us. We dont often get the chance to dance to live music. It should be a great experience for all of us. The singing and dancing will be accompanied by pianists Janet Carter and Judy Richey. Carter is the longtime Mastersingers accompanist, having played for the group since its inception. Richey is a teacher at Evangelical Christian School and has worked with many choral ensembles in the area. For more information, visit www. mastersingersfm.com.

The normal life span of this animal is eight to 10 months. We learned a lot about their feeding and care, but the biggest thing that we learned was that this local species is, unfortunately, not a very good animal to display to the public, said Mensch. They are great at hiding I would often go weeks at a time without getting a glimpse of them. Researchers also learned of another small species of octopus in the region, known as Paroctopus mercatoris, but the original description isnt complete enough to determine if the local large egg species like the ones studied at the museum is Paraoctopus mercatoris or a third unnamed species. The USF project is using DNA evidence and other techniques to determine once and for all if this common local large egg octopus is Paraoctopus mercatoris or a new species, said Mensch. Both specimens that were studied at the museum were preserved and sent to USF for DNA analysis. We had actually started to do our own preliminary research into doing this project, and as we started reaching out for collaborators on it, found that USF had already begun the project, Mensch explained. So the logical thing to do was just to include our specimens into their project. Scheduled to break ground later this month, preliminary plans call for between 10 and 15 live aquarium tanks with capacities between 100 and 1,000 gallons to be installed at the museum. Were planning to build a natural ecosystem of mollusks, fish and other marine creatures that you might not know that much about or havent seen before, said Executive Director Dorrie Hipschman, who offered that the tanks might be occupied by cuttlefish, horse conchs, giant clams, nautilus, sea bunnies, squid and octopuses. We want people to look closely we want them to be amazed. While it isnt certain if octopuses will be selected for display at the renovated museum, Mensch mentioned that the biggest benefit from her studies was that the museum had the opportunity to practice and refine cephalopod husbandry techniques to use for future octopus exhibits. The most fascinating thing about octopuses is how smart they are, she added. Larger, longer lived species can actually be trained using the same methods as dog training. They are well-known escape artists, but the specimens we had never seemed to try to escape or at least we never saw any evidence of any attempts. Marine mollusks have unique and varied needs, which require expert care. The museum is home to live animals which are displayed in exhibit tanks, Mollusks on the Move educational program animals, and several animals used for feeding and growth research. The research conducted has led to a refinement in care, as well as published articles on the behaviors of mollusks.

Dr. Ran Niehoff, the congregations pastor emeritus, for a two-session course titled Four Pioneers: Twentieth Century Theologians You Should Know. The pastors will examine the life and thought of Alfred North Whitehead, Dorothy Day, Reinhold Niebuhr and Howard Thurman. Identical classes will be held at the church at 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. each week. Whitehead was born and raised in the United Kingdom. Originally his work focused on mathematics, but in time he became involved in metaphysics. He is referred to as the father of process philosophy, which is considered foundational to many contemporary theological works. His Process and Reality is still considered required reading in the field. Day began her career as a journalist but in the early part of the 20th century, she co-founded the Catholic Worker movement with Peter Maurin. Many of her writings focus around the theological underpinnings of the modern social justice movement. Day is especially known for her gripping memoirs, including The Long Way Home Niebuhr was the most prominent member of a family of theologians. Known as much for his work in ethics as in theology, Niebuhr was part of the neo-orthodox movement and a proponent of realism. His works include The Nature and Destiny of Man and Moral Man and Immoral Society Thurman focused much of his work on race relations and is considered to be one of the major influences on Martin Luther King, Jr. and other leaders of the Civil Rights movement. Thurman is also known for his poetry, including the beloved The Work of Christmas The course is free and open to the public. Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ is located at 2050 Periwinkle Way. For more information, call the church office at 472-0497 or visit www.sanibelucc.org.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 201814 Plant SmartElderberryby Gerri ReavesElderberry ( Sambucus nigra subsp. canadensis ) is native not only to Florida but to most of the U.S. A member of the honeysuckle family, it is also called American black elderberry, southern elder, common elder, sweet elder, gulf elder and Florida elder. Typically, its found in the wild in moist freshwater areas such as marshes, along ponds or canal banks, and in low hammocks or cypress swamps. Its numerous attributes recommend it for the South Florida landscape: wildlife friendliness, low maintenance, ornamental beauty and use as a food source. This fast-growing, multi-branched shrub or small tree reaches a height of 10 to 15 feet with an equal width. The bark is rough. The opposite leaves are glossy and pinnate (once-divided) and about six inches long. Occasionally, it is bipinnate. Five to 11 sharp-pointed toothed leaflets (opposite pairs plus a terminal one) each measure one to three inches long, giving the tree a lacy look. The tree is evergreen in South Florida, but deciduous in more northern regions. Flowers and fruit appear much of the year. The showy white flower clusters attract butterflies and a variety of pollinators. The tiny five-petaled fragrant flowers can be used to make tea or surprise champagne. They can even be dipped in batter and deep-fried or added to pancake batter. Elderflower water is used in making perfumes and sweets. The tree bears profuse clusters of berries of an eighthto a quarter-inch in diameter. Small, glossy, and purpleblack, the fruit attracts birds and other wildlife. However, the trees foliage is toxic to livestock. People consume the fruit in many ways. Everyone has heard of elderberry wine, but did you know that the berries can be eaten raw or used to make pies, jam, syrup, or jelly? The down side is the fruits bad taste when raw, which drying or cooking helps to eliminate. Native Americans used various parts of the plant as a food source and as medicine. Elderberry prefers full sun to partial shade, adapts to a variety of conditions, including nutrient-poor soil, and is pestand disease-resistant. The species is not salt tolerant. Because it is thicket-forming to the point of being called weedy it works as a screen, wind break, or barrier. Optional maintenance is periodic cutting back or the removal of suckers to prevent spreading. If you grow the elderberry for the berries, be sure to plant at least two different cultivars for cross-pollination. Propagate it with seeds, cuttings, or suckers. The hollow stems can be used to make flutes and peashooters. Sources: Florida, My Eden by Frederic B. Stresau; Florida Plants for Wildlife by Craig N.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 201816 Shell Of The WeekNetted Pyramby Jos H. Leal, PhD, BaileyMatthews National Shell Museum Science Director and CuratorThe Netted Pyram, Peristichia agria Dall, 1889 is a local gastropod of the hyperdiverse family Pyramidellidae. Its shell may reach 7 mm (about 0.3 inch), and the surface sculpture includes three spiral (coiling) cords (four on last whorl) crossed by about 20 axial (vertical) ribs. The combination of spiral cords and axial ribs impart a reticulated, or net-like, pattern to the shell surface, and small nodules form at the intersections of the cords and ribs. The shell color is creamwhite. Pyrams are parasitic snails, living on or in the bodies of other mollusks, worms, sea anemones and crustaceans.

Matt MitchellThe first cold front of fall blew threw over the weekend, bringing northwest winds and dropping temperatures. This much-awaited, endto-our-summer heat and humidity will kick the southbound annual bait migration into even higher gear. The amount of life both out on the beaches and through the sound will only continue to improve with the passing of these next cold fronts. This change of season is the transition time for both our migratory species along with our resident species to pack on weight for winter. The next few months or until the water temperature drops below the low 70s brings some of the most wide open fishing of the year. The action was nuts out along the beaches this week. Tarpon, sharks, mackerel and many other species worked tightly packed bait schools, often feeding right on the surface. Seeing rolling tarpon all around the boat that ate almost whatever you pitched at them was amazing. Feeding frenzies of sharks splashed around right on the surface. This is what our fall fishing is all about. Locating these fish frenzies out on the Gulfside during calm or east winds is just a matter of running until you find feeding birds. Afterwards, you can often stay with these fish for hours and then return to the same general area for the next several days. Most of this action was within a few hundred yards of the beach. The best bite for me came while free-lining large shiners through the activity to jump tarpon and catch sharks. Ladyfish, mullet and even plugs and jigs also caught these fish. Once you locate the action, move into the area slowly. You dont want to motor right into the activity. Not only will you spook the fish, you will mess it up for anyone else. There are plenty of fish out here, so keep a good distance from the other boats and everyone will get a shot at them. There is nothing worse than having another boat just out for a ride run right through the fish and put them down. Tthe snook bite continues to go off back in the bay. In the past few weeks, I dont remember catching so many slot-sized snook. The tide pattern this week has been low water, so I have been setting up in deeper mangrove holes and shorelines. Chumming a few live shiners quickly lets you know if you are in the right place. The bigger mangrove snapper we caught all summer long seem to be about done as they are getting tougher to catch by the day. On windy days, Ive been taking a few shrimp that have caught redfish, sheepshead and even a few black drum. As the winds lay back down after this cold front, I cannot wait to get back out on the beaches and enjoy some of the best tarpon fishing of the year. Some years these fish stay as late as Christmas. It just depends on when it gets cold and they migrate out. Get out and enjoy the frenzy while they are still here. Capt. Matt Mitchell has been fishing local waters since he moved to Sanibel in 1980. He now lives in St. James City and works as a back country fishing guide. If you have comments or questions, email captmattmitchell@aol.com.

It can be spotted in much of the United States east of the Rocky Mountains, but also found on the West Coast as well as Mexico, Central America and parts of western Canada. The Virginia opossum is the continents only marsupial, an animal sporting a pouch, like a kangaroo or a koala. It has a triangular head and a long pointed snout with grayish fur all over except for its ears, tail and feet. In fact, while a possum doesnt hibernate in winter, it often takes shelter during extremely cooler weather due to its risk of getting frostbite on those furless body parts. No need to worry about these frisky mammals, though. They are survivors, since the species has been around for at least 70 million years, making them one of the Earths oldest creatures. Their resiliency is due to their protective behavior of running, growling, urinating and even defecating when approached by a predator. If that doesnt work, theyll play possum by rolling over, stiffening up, slowing up their breathing and surrendering to a catatonic state to deceive attackers. However, the lifespan of an opossum is unusually short for a mammal of its size. Ordinarily, it lives for only one to two years in the wild and as long as four or more years in captivity. Female possums have the potential to have three litters of babies per year, ranging from seven to 25 babies per litter. At CROW, the Virginia opossum is one of the more common babies seen at the clinic. Often times, their mothers are victims of being struck by a vehicle or other life-ending trauma. Without a mother to care for them, the babies are raised at CROW to have a shot at growing up and being released in the wild. With sometimes as many as 50 or more infant possums at the clinic, staff and students are kept busy with around-the-clock care. The youngest opossum babies require feedings every two to three hours, which typically works out to six feeds per day, said Dr. Robin Bast, CROWs staff veterinarian. In some cases, this means their earliest feeding is at 6 a.m. and the last feeding as late as 11 p.m. As they grow and start to eat semi-solid foods on their own, we decrease the number of feedings they get per day. Due to the large amount of infant possums at the clinic, there is a designated room to care from them. It is dedicated in the memory of a longtime CROW volunteer and supporter, according to Dr. Bast. We have a room that is almost exclusively used for raising baby opossums and houses neonate and juvenile opossums. In 2018, it has housed over 230 patients so far, she said. The room was dedicated in Ann Arnoffs memory this fall, and state-of-the-art incubators were installed for the tiniest babies thanks to donations by the Spohr Charitable Trust. Unlike other wild mammal babies, opossums cannot be nipple-fed due to their many sharp teeth and must be tube-fed until they are old enough to be transitioned to solid food. Once the opossums are eating a solid diet of various foods and have reached a certain size, they are moved to an outside enclosure until they are big enough to be released. Young opossums start to transition from formula onto solid food between four and seven weeks of age, when their eyes are open and their fur thickens, added Dr. Bast. The baby opossums typically stay indoors until approximately 12 weeks of age and weighing about 150 grams. Then, they spend a few weeks in outdoor enclosures until they are ready for release at around 15 weeks old and weighing around 300 grams.

The Community HouseLentils by Resident Chef Jarred HarrisThe lentil is a plant grown for its lens-shaped seeds. These edible seeds have been a part of the human diet for 8,000 years, or before pottery was used. The plant originated in the Middle East and was one of the first crops domesticated in the world. Lentils have been found in Egyptian tombs dating as far back as 2400 BC. Lentils have some of the highest levels of protein in the plant world. In fact, only soybeans and hemp have more. Because of this fact, and due to their high iron content, lentils play a very important role in the diets of countries with large vegetarian population, such as India. For centuries, lentils were considered to be the poor mans meat. In Catholic countries, people who couldnt afford fish would eat lentils during Lent instead. There are many different varieties and colors of lentils, including, yellow, black, orange, red, brown and green. They are sold in many forms, with or without the skins, whole or split. The most common types of lentils used in the United States are green and brown. These varieties are popular because they are best at retaining their shape after cooking and they do not need to be soaked in water prior to cooking. Lentils are an excellent source of dietary fiber and are also rich in vitamins B9, B1, B5 and B6 and minerals such as phosphorus, iron and zinc. Lentils are also used in the treatment of intestinal disorders, ulcers and slow-healing sores in India. Here is a simple recipe to try: Red Lentil Pt Ingredients 1 cup red lentils (sorted and rinsed) 4 cups water 1 bay leaf 3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil 1 medium onion (finely diced) 1/3 cup pine nuts 3 garlic cloves (minced) 1 tbsp. tomato paste 1 tsp. ground coriander tsp. ground caraway seeds teaspoon ground cumin 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper 1 tsp. sea salt Juice and zest of lemon Method Place the water in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Add the lentils and bay leaf and simmer until the lentils are tender (about 30 minutes), strain and set aside. Heat the oil in a saut pan and add the onions, pinenuts and garlic. Cook until the onions begin to brown, then remove from the heat. Add the tomato paste, spices, juice and zest to the pan and mix until well incorporated. Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Remove the pt from the food processor and place in a serving dish or ramekins. Garnish with lemon and serve with toasted pita and chutney. Resident Chef Jarred Harris heads the Culinary Education Center at The Community House on Sanibel.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 201828 Book ReviewLullaby Roadby Di SaggauAuthor James Anderson is coming to Sanibel. He will do a book signing for Lullaby Road at MacIntosh Books on Thursday, November 8 at 4 p.m. The book is a powerful literary crime novel about parenthood, loss and the desert in winter. Ben Jones is a local truck driver. He is still heartbroken over the murder of the woman he loved, and now spends his days traversing icy roads and serving as the regions sole lifeline to the outside world. He delivers supplies to locals who live off Route 117, a remote road through the Utah desert trafficked only by those looking to escape their past. The oddball characters in this unconventional mystery are unlike any others. Everyone seems to have a haunting past. Ben wonders what lies in Johns past. Id often mused on what compelled a man to move to a dying town in the high desert of Utah and take up hauling a cross up and down an isolated highway six months a year. And John is just one of the many colorful characters youll meet. In spite of their oddities, they are believable. Ben is melancholy most of the time, but that turns to a desperation when he suddenly finds a mute Hispanic child who has been abandoned at a seedy truck stop along his route. The child has a note that reads Please, Ben. Bad trouble. My son. Take him today. His name is Juan. And then at the bottom of the note it says Trust you only. Tell no one. From that moment on nothing will ever be the same. Ben, despite deep misgivings, and without any inkling of the grave danger hes facing, takes the child with him in his truck and sets out into an environment that is as deadly as it is beautiful. The Huffington Post writes, The world of the desert and of Ben Jones life come alive through the skilled artistry of Andersons talent. His description of the scenery is mind-blowing, and his creation of characters is even better. You have never read someone who writes like Anderson. He has a unique way of expressing himself in his pages. An artisan of the highest ranking in developing a plot that fascinates readers. I devoured the book in one day enjoying the story and his poetic prose. Amid the heart-pounding plot, there are unexpected twists. And yet with his amazing use of language, Anderson makes you laugh at times. He is a sympathetic narrator in talking about the realities of being both good and bad. Lullaby Road is a mix of landscape, character, wit, intrigue and suspense and is definitely worth your time. School Smartby Shelley M.

BIG ARTS Ethics Film SeriesPassengersby Ron GreenOn Wednesday, November 7 at 12:30 p.m., the Island Cinema will show Passengers, the fourth and final movie in this years BIG ARTS Ethics Film Series. The film runs 116 minutes. After the movie, a discussion will take place at the cinema. Passengers is a 2017 science fiction drama directed by Morten Tyldum and written by Jon Spaihts. The film stars Jennifer Lawrence as Aurora Lane and Chris Pratt as Jim Preston, passengers on the interstellar spaceship Avalon, transporting 5,258 people on a 120-year voyage to a distant colony planet. When his hibernation module malfunctions and wakes him prematurely, Preston faces challenging choices about how he will live out his life. He is counseled, and perhaps unwittingly betrayed by Arthur, a robotic bartender wonderfully played by Martin Sheen. 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 Passengers is how we may responsibly respond to the prospect of extreme suffering. Is it ever justified to relieve your own suffering by causing other persons to suffer as well? Wednesdays discussion will be led by Ronald M. Green, professor emeritus for the study of ethics and human values at Dartmouth College. Green is a Sanibel resident. Tickets are $7, available at BIG ARTS or the day of the film at Island Cinema, located at 535 Tarpon Bay Road. image provided BIG ARTS CornerWorkshops And SeminarsBIG ARTS is offering the following workshops: Wheel Throwing and Slab Building with Clay with Martha Grattan Tuesdays, November 6 through December 11, 1 to 4 p.m. Adult Tap with Bobby Logue Tuesdays, November 6 to 27, 12:30 to 2 p.m. Beginner Tap with Bobby Logue Tuesdays, November 6 to 27, 2:15 to 3:15 p.m. Life Drawing Open Studio Noninstructed with Carol Rosenberg Fridays, November 9 to 30, 9:30 a.m. to noon.

He plays the National Anthem for a Mets game, seems scrubbed of ego, and most importantly, he plays the violin, filling the film with the yearning strains of his instrument. Perlman discusses his violin, including its presence at Auschwitz. The film crew follows him unobtrusively through New York moments, observing the Sabbath with family, rehearsing a trio or maneuvering his scooter through snow. His wife Toby is with him. Aside from frank views of his crutches and leg braces, and a mention of early rejections because of his handicap, the film glides lightly and uncritically along the surface of a life. In Itzhak, we spend time with his personality, which radiates joy about art, thoughtfulness when he reflects on his life, happiness around loved ones, and passion for teaching. It is a joyous film about a joyous man, good-humored, earthy and inspiring. A sneak peek into the life of an iconic New Yorker will inspire wonder of art, music and family. The film runs 83 minutes. Moderator for the evening is Di Saggau. Admission to BIG ARTS Monday Night Film Series is $10 and all screenings begin at 7 p.m. in Schein Performance Hall. Each film is followed by a complimentary reception and discussion. BIG ARTS is located at 900 Dunlop Road.

NEWSPAPERSanibel & Captiva Islands VOL. 26, NO. 18 SANIBEL & CAPTIVA ISLANDS, FLORIDA NOVEMBER 2, 2018 BSECTION Weather and Tides pa ge 18B SCCF Appoints New CEO As Lindblad Retires The Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) Board of Trustees and CEO Erick Lindblad announced that, effective January 1, 2019, Ryan Orgera, PhD, will take the helm as SCCFs new chief executive officer. While this is a very bittersweet transition for me and my family, I am completely confident that Im passing the baton to the right next leader for the foundation, said Lindblad who is stepping down after 32 years of service. I am eager to work side by side with Ryan through two months of orientation prior to my departure. To ensure a smooth transition, Orgera began working full-time at SCCF on November 1, and Lindblad will remain as CEO through the end of December. The strategic planning and recruitment process spanned 18 months, said SCCF Vice President Doug Ryckman, who chaired the CEO search committee. It was thorough, expansive and we had candidates from across the U.S. and several other countries. The search resulted in finding Ryan, who is an outstanding choice for this organizations next CEO. The search committee and the board of trustees were enthusiastic and unanimous continued on page 4B Ryan Orgera photo provided Sea School Lifers Program Beginsby Jeff LysiakNow that the fall season has finally arrived, adults seeking to continue their educational journey can take advantage of the Sanibel Sea Schools latest series of classes that will offer compelling lectures, boat trips, social events and documentary screenings.

During the hour-long presentation, Hussey explained the history of 3D printers, described how the machine works and what practical applications this state of the art technology can be used for. According to Hussey, the librarys newly acquired 3D printer MakerBot Replicator is a fifth generation threedimensional printer, which costs about $2,500. For how young this technology is, its pretty impressive, he said. The precision of these machines is getting better, so theyre able to print objects even quicker. According to the website ExplainThatStuff, A typical 3D printer is very much like an inkjet printer operated from a computer. It builds up a 3D model one layer at a time, from the bottom upward, by repeatedly printing over the same area in a method known as fused depositional modeling (FDM). Working entirely automatically, the printer creates a model over a period of hours by turning a 3D computer-aided design (CAD) drawing into lots of two-dimensional, cross-sectional layers. Instead of using ink, which would never build up to much volume, thecontinued on page 12B From left, visitors Sandy and Cindy Lungershausen watching IT manager Danny Hussey demonstrating how a 3D printer operates photos by Jeff Lysiak Martha Howard inspects a glove created with a 3D printer by Danny Hussey

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 20182B Women Voters To Host Program On Water Qualitysubmitted by Robyn CookThe League of Women Voters (LWV) of Sanibel will present Water Currents: Causes, Soluntions and Actions Impacting Water Quality, a program and luncheon to be held on Thursday, November 15. The expert panel will feature John Cassani, Calusa Waterkeeper; James Evans, City of Sanibel director of natural resources; and Rae Ann Wessel, SCCF natural resources policy director. The LWV of Sanibel kicks off its 2018-19 series of luncheon programs with a topic that is high on the list of concerns for every resident and visitor to Sanibel and for all environmentally aware people up and down both coasts of Florida. The group asked the experts to take off the kid gloves and tell it like it is. The election will be behind us, we will have a new governor, and we will be curious to learn how the elections will affect our panelists (and our own) strategies as they continue advocating for water quality. We will be particularly interested to hear our panelists provide us with insider information on the most relevant questions, such as: Who is responsible for water quality? What can be done to improve water quality? How will the reservoir impact/help water issues? What can the public/legislature do to improve water quality in the short and long term? If you have spent the late spring and summer months with tears in your eyes, both literally and figuratively, from the blue-green algae and red tide disaster affecting our waters and wildlife, and for those who are just coming back to the stark realities, you will want to hear from this outstanding panel. All of them have been central to the ongoing dialogue and strategies involving the past and current impacts of red tide and blue-green algae on our local and all of Floridas incredible waterways and the wildlife living in our midst. Cassani accepted the position of Calusa Waterkeeper in December, 2016, licensed through the Waterkeeper Alliance. His professional career as an ecologist started in Lee County. From 1978 to 2014, he worked as a resource manager for local government, managing waterways of Southwest Florida. Cassani has authored both peer-reviewed science publications and popular media sources on resource management, history, water policy and conservation issues. His service on advisory boards, commitment to community and involvement with land and water conservation has received recognition from various civic groups. Because of his expertise as a fisheries scientist and water manager, he has been sought as a consultant to private industry, government and academia. Evans has worked as a biologist and resource manager for the past 18 years. He has a BA in environmental studies and a MS in environmental science from FGCU. As part of his graduate research, he investigated the influence of freshwater inflow on fish and invertebrates in Estero Bay. Prior to working with the city, Evans was employed by the Center for Environmental Studies, where he monitored tape grass, oysters and water quality in the Caloosahatchee and estuary as part of the South Florida Water Management Districts Valued Ecosystem Component Study. Most recently, he authored the Caloosahatchee Watershed Regional Water Management Issues white paper, a document outlining shortand long-term strategies to address the freshwater discharges from Lake Okeechobee and the Caloosahatchee watershed. Wessel is an expert in freshwater and marine ecosystems; a gifted and knowledgable limnologist (a scientist who studies fresh water bodies) and marine scientist, with more than 30 years of experience working in South Florida on environmental issues and policy. She was instrumental in the formation in 1994 of the nonprofit Caloosahatchee River Citizens Association that focuses on improving the ecological health of the river, promoting public awareness of issues affecting the river, and monitoring governmental agencies responsible for management of the river and its watershed. Wessel is appointee to the 2020 Conservation Lands Acquisition and Stewardship Committee and has received a number of awards for her environmental work. Registration begins at 11:30 a.m. for the noon to 2 p.m. luncheon and program, with time for questions and answers following.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 20184B The Sanibel Captiva Trust CompanyCurrent Outlook by Richard E. Pyle, CFA, President Within weeks, we will be reviewing 2018 and finalizing our expectations for 2019. So far, this past year has unfolded pretty much as we had anticipated both economically and regarding the financial markets. Our words of caution regarding uncertainties have proven to be correct as we review political developments. Nothing, however, was uncertain about the general direction of stock, bond and alternative strategies. Fueled by higher economic growth and corporate tax cuts, American businesses experienced sharp profit growth and found the ability to return excess cash to investors. While short-term interest rates rose as expected due to Federal Reserve Board actions, longer-term rates were held down by the comparatively weak yields offered by the rest of the world. Many financial markets were driven by traders playing the spread game of borrowing in low interest rate countries and buying higherrate U.S. bonds. If those conditions persist and worldwide rates remain low, our bond market will remain unattractive relative to the equity market, and our investment strategies will continue to favor stocks. We continue to watch closely the shrinking of another spread the difference in yields between U.S. shortterm interest rates and U.S. longer-term interest rates. Typically, the wider the spread between short and long rates, the better the economy can perform, as entities are incentivized to invest for the future. Conversely, the narrower the spread, the greater the chance that growth slows and the economy recesses. A few years ago, when the Federal Reserve Board was trying to jump-start the economy, they kept short-term rates at near zero while longer term bonds were yielding 1.5 to 2.0 percent. Today, 10-year treasury bonds are priced to yield about 3.1 percent while two-year government bond rates have been driven higher by the Federal Reserve Board to almost 2.8 percent. With Septembers increase in the short-term Federal Funds rate and expectations of another 0.25 percent increase in December, we could see that spread approach zero, increasing the pressure on lenders and investors. We are watching this spread closely and would not be surprised if the Fed halted their rate increases in 2019 until longer-term interest rates worldwide sustainably increase. One other event we are watching that will impact financial markets is the mid-term Congressional elections in November. Because of the 2016 elections, Washington came under single-party rule for the first time since 2008. As a result, a monumental tax reform package passed that led to a sudden acceleration in corporate profit growth. However, we may experience a return to divided rule after the election. This would give our economy a chance to digest the effects of previous policy changes, but our operating assumption is that we will not experience any roll-back of the tax reforms after the elections. Longer-term issues related to the burgeoning national deficit and debt must be addressed as well. The current path of deficit spending is unsustainable even assuming above-average economic growth. Higher revenue growth and slower spending growth are the only ways to put our fiscal house in order. However, higher taxes and slower spending are also just different sides of the same coin that would place a drag on economic growth. Thus, our current outlook still offers a mix of challenges and opportunities. We expect the rate of profit growth to slow in 2019 to around 8 percent compared to 20 percent-plus in 2018. At the same time, equity valuations remain reasonable. Corporate profits have been growing faster than share prices, which means price-to-earnings (P/E) ratios have declined. We expect a broadening of the economy worldwide to produce growth of around 4 percent despite the possible negative impact of trade conflicts. The uncertainty of trade may pose a short-term psychological risk, but we also may see these issues resolved diplomatically, leading ultimately to lower trade barriers. The bottom line: We remain cautiously optimistic and emphasize owning the best companies and fixed-income alternatives to achieve our clients long-term return goals. From page 1BNew CEOin their selection of Ryan. He was definitely our first choice. Orgera comes to SCCF from The Pew Charitable Trusts where he was an officer working on marine conservation projects across the globe. His work included efforts to save vulnerable shark species through the Convention on the International Trade of Endangered Species (CITES) and global efforts to stem illegal fishing. Among the roles he held earlier in his career, Orgera was the legislative director of the Coastal States Organization, and has taught environmental geography courses at The George Washington University. He also served as the Knauss Marine Policy Fellow in the Office of U.S. Senator Bill Nelson, making him Senator Nelsons primary expert on ocean and coastal policy issues. Holding a BA and MA from the University of South Florida, Orgera earned his PhD in geography and environmental sciences from Louisiana State University. A published author, Orgera is also fluent in French, Spanish and Italian. Orgera grew up on Lemon Bay in Charlotte County, and his family continues to reside in Southwest Florida. Ive traveled the world, and no matter how many places I visit, the nature of Southwest Florida touches me like no other. It is in my fiber, said Orgera. It is a profound honor to follow in Ericks enormous footsteps. I am grateful and eager to help steer SCCF through the challenges and achievements of its next 50 years.

HerschMichael B. Hill RESERVE YOUR SEAT TODAY!rf239.322.3831 theme. For the current series, the theme 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 Director of Education Shannon Stainken, who noted that upcoming sessions will include a screening of the documentary The End of the Line a Fish Bingo party, a fly fishing workshop with tying demonstration and ornament making class. According to Dr. Bruce Neill, co-founder and executive director of Sanibel Sea School, the fall series for adults differs from the schools previously offered programs. In the past, we did the traditional Sanibel Sea School stuff because the adults told us they wanted to do the same things our kids were doing, but at a different level, said Dr. Neill. In reality, most adults really didnt want to do those same things. We want to take people who have enormous amounts of education and life experience and supplement what they know with new information. Were going to have organic discussions centered around a single topic each week, and hopefully that becomes a diverse, communal discussion. The remaining Sanibel Sea School Lifers Fall 2018 schedule includes: Friday, November 9 (7 to 9 p.m.): Film & Discussion Night The End of the Line The documentary by filmmaker Rupert Murray examines the devastating effects that overfishing has had on the worlds fish populations. The film argues that drastic action must be taken to reverse these trends. Participants will sample small bites and beverages while engaging in great conversations. Friday, November 16 (4 to 6 p.m.): Social Event Fish Bingo. Participants will enjoy testing and sharing their fish identification knowledge while socializing with new friends over drinks and refreshments. Wednesday, November 28 (7 to 9 p.m.): Fly Fishing Films & Discussion Fly Fishing in the Anthropocene and select shorts. Considered a sport by some and an art form by others, there is one thing all fly fishermen have in common: a thirst for adventure. Friday, November 30 (4 to 6 p.m.): Guest Lecture Dr. Ross Boucek from Bonefish & Tarpon Trust (BTT), a group whose mission is to conserve and restore bonefish, tarpon and permit fisheries and habitats through research, stewardship, education and advocacy. Dr. Boucek, the Florida Keys Initiatives manager, spends most of his time in the Keys, either conducting BTT science or working with anglers and management agencies to turn BTT science into meaningful management and regulatory changes that improve our Keys fishery. Friday, December 7: Ocean Ornament Making during Sanibel Luminary Festival (free). Event begins at 5:30 p.m. and all materials will be provided. Friday, December 14 (7 to 9 p.m.): Fly Tying Workshop with local notaries. Whether its the camaraderie, inventiveness, skill or simply a way to catch more fish, people are thrilled about tying flies. Take part in an evening of fly tying with local island experts. All materials will be provided. Each program costs $20 per person to attend and does not require advance registration. For more information, visit www.sanibelseaschool.org/sanibel-adultclasses or call 472-8585. Shannon has done a masterful job integrating the community with fun classes, added Dr. Neill. I think people will enjoy the social nature of enhancing their knowledge of nature, right in our own backyard. Were pushing fun out in front of education. The SX3 Lifers winter program will begin on January 18, 2019. Try your luck at Fish Bingo photo provided From page 1BLifers Program

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 201812B From page 1B3D Printingprinter deposits layers of molten plastic or powder and fuses them together (and to the existing structure) with adhesive or ultraviolet light. During last weeks demonstration, Hussey described the step-by-step process of creating an object using a 3D printer. First, a three-dimensional scan of the item to be replicated must be completed. While the library doesnt have its own scanner, it does use a website database of literally thousands of objects. Once an item has been selected, that file is sent to the computer, scaled for the desired size. The printer sees the file like a slice of bread and thinks of how many slices its gonna take to print that object, said Hussey. Using a spool of thermoplastic called ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) heated to 356 degrees Fahrenheit, the printer slowly begins to create thin layers of plastic, stacked on top of one another. Starting with a base layer called the raft, the printer methodically zig-zags back and forth through the painstaking process of recreating the object. For a small jack-o-lantern that Hussey chose to create for the demonstration, the printer took about 65 minutes. The popularity of the 3D printer at the library is already beginning to grow. Hussey said that kids often request that they make objects like shells, starfish and in recent weeks Halloween items. One adult patron had requested a small part for his antique automobile to be printed. He had downloaded the file for the part before he came in, said Hussey. After we printed it, he took it home and painted it. He was very happy the way it came out it looked brand new. Another visitor asked Hussey to make her a taco stand, something that is hard to find outside of the restaurant industry. She was so thrilled to have one that she returned to ask if another could be made for her husband. The popularity of 3D printers continues to grow as the technology improves and the hardware becomes more affordable. Home printers cost as little as $300 and spools of thermoplastic cost around $10. Professional printers can employ a wide variety of materials including metals, concrete and organic tissue for use in several industries and items including building construction, aerospace technologies, jewelry, commercial bakeries and medical applications. Some people have expressed a concern that these are using more plastics, but in reality these printers saves up to 90 percent of raw material, which reduces our carbon footprint, added Hussey. Technically, using 3D printers could actually be easier on the earth. Upcoming ThinkTank activities at the library include: Fun With MakeyMakey Tuesdays, November 6 and 13 from 3 to 4 p.m. For ages 8 and over. Get ready for an afternoon of computer circuit fun. Learn a little about the circuitry and build a circuit that turns fruits into musical instruments. Experience Virtual Reality (The Blu) Friday, November 9 from 3 to 4 p.m. For ages 10 and older.

13B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 2018 Trust Company Supports CROW Golf TournamentThe Sanibel Captiva Trust Company was a corporate sponsor for the 2018 CROW Classic Golf Tournament, held recently at The Sanctuary Golf Club. In addition to the corporate foursome, the trust company entered three foursomes to support the cause and was fortunate to take home the first and second place awards. First place prize was a free round of golf for four at The Sanctuary and second place was a free round for four at The Dunes Golf & Tennis Club. Both prizes were donated back by the winners so CROW could sell them and raise additional funds in support of the clinic to help preserve and protect local wildlife. The trust company has been a long-time supporter of CROW and encourages everyone to help this local wildlife organization, celebrating its 50th anniversary as a teaching hospital and education center dedicated to saving wildlife through state-of-the-art veterinary care, research, education and conservation medicine. There are many ways you can support CROW, including membership, donations, recurring and memorial gifts, and contributions to the endowment fund. People can also donate stock, utilize the vehicle donation program, purchase items on the Amazon Wish List or volunteer time in support of the many daily activities required to care for sick and injured wildlife. Visit www.crowclinic. org for more information. CROWs major fundraiser, the 37th Taste of the Islands, will be held on Sunday, November 11 from 12:30 to 5 p.m. at Sanibel Community Park.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 201814B Rosier: The name that has been serving Southwest Florida for over 65 years 1200 Periwinkle Way, Suite 2 Matzaluna Plaza Sanibel IslandAngela Larson Roehlalarson@rosierinsurance.com 472-1152www.rosierinsurance.com Insurance Solutions For Sanibel & Captiva Wind Flood Home Condo Business Auto Boat CONTACT US TODAY Meeting with an attorney can sometimes be intimidating. Id like to think that Im not the least bit intimidating, as I dont usually even wear a tie to my office. Nevertheless, it occurred to me that many clients are anxious before our first meeting. Psychologists tell me that if a client knows what to expect, then that helps alleviate the anxiety. Consequently, I thought Id take all of you behind the scenes to what the attorneys in my firm do prior to an initial meeting with an estate planning client. Theres actually a significant amount of preparation involved, and I hope that once you understand that process, the insight will help you gain an advantage in exactly what might be accomplished during an estate planning meeting. In our firm, we have three requirements prior to the initial meeting. The first requirement is to either attend one of our workshops, watch a 25-minute instructional video about the first meeting, or read my book, The Florida Residency & Estate Planning Guide. The second requirement is to complete our client organizer, and the third requirement is to drop off or email us a copy of any existing estate planning documents that youve already put into place. The reason for these requirements is that we want our first meeting to be as productive as possible. Our workshops, video and book are designed to raise issues that we want you to consider before sitting down with us. Theres more to an estate plan than who gets what when we die. Our workshop, video and book delve into the other important elements to a successful plan. Believe it or not, at our first meeting, we will likely dive deeper into what you hope that your estate plan accomplishes. Our client organizer is designed to provide us insight into who you are, who your beneficiaries are, and whats transpired in the past that might affect your planning. Our organizer contains a balance sheet for you to complete. That balance sheet is extremely important, not because it reveals your net worth, rather, it tells us whether your assets have unrealized capital gains, ordinary income tax consequences, estate or gift tax issues, family business or real estate considerations, and a host of other matters that we should discuss to put together a plan that will meet your goals, both during your life and after. Finally, its important for us to review your current plan documents, including your will, trust, durable power of attorney, health care surrogate and living will. Before our meeting, our attorneys review your client organizer and compare it to your legal documents. We sometimes find that your assets arent properly aligned with your estate plan. If, for example, you have a revocable trust, but all of your assets are titled in your name individually, we note that your assets may not be aligned with your plan. Similarly, we like to review your IRA and 401(k) beneficiary designations to ensure that youve taken the necessary precautions to protect your loved ones and minimize income taxes. If we notice an out-of-date estate tax formula clause, that will be something that well raise during our initial meeting. Some clients own family businesses, so if thats disclosed on your organizer but we dont find corresponding closely held business interest or Qualified Subchapter S Corporation provisions in your documents, we know theres something else thats important to review with you. We gain so much when we take the time to review your situation before we even sit down together with you in our conference room. Thats why we ask that you complete the three requirements at least three business days prior to our meeting. That way, our attorneys will have the opportunity to review what you have provided to us prior to the conference. When we sit down, were ready to help you in the best way possible. Do all other firms operate in a similar manner? I cant speak for the others, but Im sure that some do, while others dont. Weve had this process in place for almost two decades. When I was a younger lawyer, I used to spend more than an hour during the initial conference gathering the information we now ask you to provide before the meeting. I discovered that was a colossal waste of time both on our part and on the clients part. Its so much better to review the information before the conference so that everyone can hit the ground running, spending our valuable time together on what really matters. After all, who wants to spend more time than they have to in an attorneys office!? Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at www.sbshlaw.com. Will PowerBehind The Scenesby Craig R.

Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellAlthough the Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Trust has closed its fall grant cycle and all applications have been processed, our board will not be announcing the grant recipients names until all have been notified. However, the club had two grant applications in the pipeline for matching funds from our Rotary District #6960, applied for by San-Cap Rotary Foundation representative Chet Sadler a few months ago. Sadler announced, Good news, our clubs matching fund applications had been granted the Harlem Heights Center in Fort Myers will be receiving $5,000 for repair of their hydroponic gardens after being damaged by Hurricane Irma, and the Sanibel Sea School will receive $5,000 to purchase kayaks, enabling students to explore the waters around Sanibel. This was a timely announcement, since our guest speaker on Friday was Dr. Bruce Neill, Sanibel Sea School executive director. Dr. Neill spoke about the islands surrounding water quality and red tide. He said most of us are misled or uninformed on the topic; the reason, we know little about the ocean. Little government money has been directed to this specific study. Red tide outbreaks and blue-green algae produced by freshwater releases from Lake Okeechobee down the Caloosahatchee to San Carlos Bay have certainly made an impact on our area. That might change for a while, but science tells us that something major is happening in our environment and we need to wake up and pay attention. Red tide is caused by a microscopic algae, Karenia brevis, and is always present in the Gulf of Mexico, a natural occurrence. The multiplying of Karenia brevis can be exacerbated by unusual environmental conditions and can reproduce rapidly. These algae blooms produce brevetoxins, which can result in significant ecological impact. Brevetoxins can affect the central nervous system of fish and other vertebrates, causing these animals to die. Wind and currents push thousands of dead fish together in a massive fish kill. As red tide blooms approach coastal areas, breaking waves can cause toxins to become mixed with airborne sea spray. People can experience varying degrees of eye, nose and throat irritation. When a person leaves an area with a red tide, symptoms usually go away. Dr. Neill told us, Red tide outbreaks will go away for now, but we will see them again. When? No answer. Why? More study is needed. According to Mote Marine Laboratory, Red tide blooms have been getting progressively worse, closer to shore, and persisting for a greater length of time, indicating that if it is an entirely natural cycle, it has undergone concerning changes of late. Water quality in the Gulf of Mexico and San Carlos Bay was affected this summer by both red tide in nearby saltwater bodies and also by impactful occurrences of blue-green algae formed in water flowing down the Caloosahatchee from Lake O. The lake water is polluted by agricultural fertilizer run-off and, when released down the Caloosahatchee, is joined by other fertilizer and polluted runoff. Fertilizers are not our only problem; poor sewage and sanitation processes have contributed to the algae problem. Sanibel has led the way on fertilizer restrictions and has plans in the works to create a more efficient wastewater treatment facility. We cant change Mother Nature, but we can fix our plumbing and wastewater treatment problems. And, here are my two cents: When you vote in this election, be selective and vote for those who really are interested in improving water quality in our states oceans, rivers and lakes. Vote for those that will walk the walk and not just talk the talk. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets Friday mornings at 7 a.m. at The Dunes Golf & Tennis Club. Guests are welcome.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 201820B Red Sox Only Team To Win Four World Series In Present Centuryby Ed FrankWow! What a season for the Boston Red Sox, and what a postseason run to their fourth World Series championship in the last 15 seasons. Some already claim that this Red Sox team is one of the very best in baseball history. And its hard to dispute that claim. Heres a team that set a franchise record of 108 wins in the regular season and won 11 more in their relatively easy pursuit of the world title. They were a scorching 11-3 in their post-season race to the World Series title. No question it was the greatest Red Sox team in their storied history. They are the only team in the present century to win four World Series (2004, 2007, 2013 and 2018), topping the San Francisco Giants with three and the New York Yankees with two. The wild celebration that started Sunday night in Dodgers Stadium when Boston finished off the Dodgers 5-1 in a four-games-to-one series victory continued this past week in Boston when the team brought the World Series trophy home. And we should expect a big celebration here in February when the Red Sox return for Spring Training with the World Series trophy in hand. History shows it is difficult to win back-to-back World Series, the Yankees being the last team to do so when they won three in a row, 1998, 1999 and 2000. But this Red Sox team is still relatively young sprinkled with seasoned veterans. They were preseason favorites to win it all this year, and the Las Vegas oddsmakers were right. No doubt they will be favorites again in 2019. Many should be given credit for this great season, chief among them Dave Dombrowski who was hired three years ago as president of baseball operations. Although the Red Sox won the American League Eastern Division titles in 2016 and 2017, they were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs both years. The shrewd Dombrowski fired manager John Farrell and reached into the Houston Astros organization to hire Alex Cora. As bench coach for Houston, Cora had no managerial experience on his resume. And now the rookie manager has won it all in his first try and should be a favorite to be named Manager of the Year. The Red Sox Nation will long remember 2018. The huge Red Sox following here in Southwest Florida wont forget it either. Twins Hire Youngest Manager In Major Leagues For the first time in more than three decades, the Minnesota Twins went outside their organization to hire 37-year-old Rocco Baldelli, becoming the youngest manager in the Major Leagues. He comes to the Twins after eight years in the Tampa Bay Rays organization where he served as field coordinator this past season. He previously was first-base coach for the Rays and worked in the teams front office for four years. The hiring of an outsider by the Twins comes as no surprise as two years ago Twins ownership dumped long-time general manager Terry Ryan and brought in Derek Falvey as chief baseball officer and Thad Levine as general manager. Both were outside the Twins family, and it has been reported they wanted their own man as team skipper. Balldelli replaces Hall of Famer Paul Molotor who managed the team for four seasons to a 305-343 (.471) record including one postseason appearance. Balldelli fits the Twins road map to hire a manager who is analytically inclined yet understands the old-time belief in scouting. He is expected to hire his own coaching staff and play an important role in front office decisions on free agency signings. Dont feel sorry for Molitor, however, as he is owed about $3.5 million by the Twins over the next two years. Sanibel Night With EverbladesOne of the most anticipated nights of professional hockey on the 2018-19 Florida Everblades season schedule, Sanibel Night, is fast approaching, with the game promising a lot of hard-hitting ice hockey and camaraderie amongst islanders in attendance. For the first time ever, members of The Sanibel School Seahorse Chorale and Elementary Choir will be performing the National Anthem prior to the Friday, November 9 Florida Everblades game against the Jacksonville Icemen. The puck drops at 7:30 p.m. at Hertz Arena, located at 11000 Everblades Parkway in Estero. The music department at The Sanibel School is selling tickets to Sanibel Night to support the Seahorse Chorales upcoming trip to Walt Disney World. Tickets are $18 each, and the school receives $8 from every ticket sold. Tickets 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 music educator Joey 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. My students have been working together since August, and theyve worked really hard and are sounding great, said Giangreco.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 201822B Superior InteriorsDo-It-Yourself Designingby Marcia FeeneyWe live in an age where do-it-yourself is all the rage, from designing your own business card, to creating your own web page. When it comes to a doit-yourself design project, consider the following before you decide: Are you confident the project will turn out right the first time? Is the risk low for making a mistake? The higher the risk, the greater the possibility you may want to hire a professional. Have you used the skills to do this project before, and had great success or minimal success? Do you have enough time to complete the project? (add 30 percent more time if you have never done it before) How valuable is your time? Do you own the tools to do the project? Do you like to fix mistakes/problems? What kind of results are you expecting? If it is a first-time project, you may have to lower your expectations. Based on your answers to the questions, consider whether hiring an expert makes sense or whether you want to do it yourself. Your answers to these questions could change depending on the complexity of each project. Marcia Feeney is an interior designer on Sanibel/Captiva Islands.

Brendan Ryan, CLU, ChFC, MSFSI am a big believer in immediate or income annuities. But before we discuss them here, let me lay out a sort of glossary so that we are all on the same page. In all cases, these refer to contracts issued by life insurance companies only such insurers are allowed to offer the guarantees that annuities carry. A qualified annuity is one designed to receive before-tax funds from qualified retirement plans. A nonqualified annuity is designed to receive after-tax dollars. A deferred annuity is one that receives dollars that the owner does not need to use at present. The money is held in the contract until withdrawn. Any gain in the value of that money is not currently taxed but will be taxed as ordinary income when withdrawn. Since neither the funds going into a qualified annuity nor the growth credited to it have been taxed until withdrawal, every dollar that comes out is taxed as ordinary income. Since nonqualified annuities receive after-tax dollars, only the untaxed gain is taxed upon withdrawal. An immediate annuity does not defer a payout but begins to pay its regular amount annually, semiannually, quarterly or monthly at the election of the owner. A fixed annuity is one that carries no market risk. Rather, the funds are held in the insurers general account; and the insurer guarantees that no money will be lost. The insurer guarantees to pay interest, the amount of which for each annuity will vary with many factors. A variable annuity puts a clients money in one or more subaccounts of the clients choosing. These are diversified portfolios of securities. The value of a clients account fluctuates with the composite performance of the securities in the selected subaccounts. The insurer does not guarantee the safety of the principal or a return on the money. An immediate income annuity can be funded with: Dollars built up in the deferred phase of that annuity; A lump sum paid by the annuity owner including rollovers from a life-insurance policy or another annuity; After-tax dollars from whatever source, such as a certificate of deposit or savings account; or Before-tax dollars accumulated in a qualified retirement plan. What is truly unique about this kind of annuity is that it provides income that you cannot outlive (a single-life annuity). Or, if you prefer, it will guarantee an income payable as long as you and another person live (a joint annuity). Without such a lifetime guarantee, all one can do during retirement is withdraw money little by little and hope that they will not outlive their money. No one knows how long they will live. So, the non-annuity owner will, in all likelihood, have one of two outcomes. Either he or she will take out too much from time to time and deplete the asset before death, thus outliving their income, or they will take out so little, for fear of running out of money, that they cannot enjoy the full benefit of the money they worked so hard to accumulate. With a fixed immediate annuity, the insurer considers your age, sex and amount of money being applied, and determines how much level amount it can pay annually, semiannually, quarterly or monthly, as the owner chooses, guaranteed for the one or two lifetimes. With a variable immediate annuity, the insurer guarantees that a certain number of units will be paid at each interval for the one or two lifetimes. The value of the unit will vary with the composite value of the securities held in the subaccounts that the owner selected. So, the amount of each periodic payment changes accordingly. Social Security payments are a type of fixed immediate annuity that we are all familiar with. If that source will not provide enough income to cover a retirees regular, ongoing costs from month to month, an immediate annuity may be part of the solution. J.

23B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 2018 Got A Problem? Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: Im trying to work on my resilience. Can you make some recommendations on how to increase resiliency?A: Psychologists have identified some of the factors that make someone resilient; among them are a positive attitude, optimism, the ability to regulate emotions, and the ability to see failure as some form of lesson and helpful feedback. Even after misfortune, resilient people are blessed with such an outlook that they are able to change course and bounce back. Resilient people have the following: Sense of autonomy appropriate sense of independence from family dysfunction, being self-sufficient, determined to be different, having goals to build a better life; They are calm under pressure and have the ability to regulate stress levels; They have a rational thought process; They have a healthy self-esteem and optimism; They have happiness and emotional intelligence; They have a life filled with meaning and purpose; They have a sense of humor and see the light side of life; Altruism (learned helpfulness) love and compassion; Character (integrity and moral strength); Balance (engagement of a wide range of activities, such as hobbies, educational pursuits, jobs, social and cultural pastimes); Adaptability (having persistence, confidence and flexibility, accepting what cannot be controlled, using creative problem-solving skills and active coping strategies); Good health habits getting sufficient sleep, proper nutrition and exercise, using alcohol in moderation, maintaining good personal appearance any hygiene. No use of tobacco. Resilience continues and exists on a continuum, being able to leap back or bounce back. If you work on all of the above, you will be living a healthy life in balance.

What are you supposed to do if youre allergic to milk, and want to eat dark chocolate? Its a good question. Milk is actually allowed as an ingredient in dark chocolate, but sometimes it produces a harmful allergy in dairy-sensitive individuals. The reality is that most chocolates contain some milk, and its undisclosed. The FDA actually tested 100 different brands of dark chocolate bars, and they specifically tested it for the presence of milk. Of these 100 bars, only six of them listed the ingredient of milk. The other 88 bars did not disclose milk as an ingredient, yet 51 of them contained milk. Dairytainted chocolates are among the most frequently reported allergic reactions. Its unfortunate, but true that milk can get into a dark chocolate product even when its not directly added. The problem happens because the dark chocolate is often produced on the same equipment that makes their milk chocolate bars. And traces of milk often inadvertently wind up in the dark chocolate batter. Its essentially a problem of cross-contamination. My best suggestion to you is to completely avoid dark chocolate (if youre allergic to milk or dairy) unless the brand youre buying is made on equipment dedicated to dark chocolate bars only. This is hard to find, but possible. This is why its difficult to place your trust in the food industry. They dont mean to make people sick, but their laziness or sloppiness can lead to pain and suffering for some of you. As a result, you see warnings on the label that serve as a wink of sorts. This product may contain dairy or may contain traces of milk or this one, manufactured in a facility that uses milk. There are others but if youre my best friend, I would tell you to replace the word may with probably. The take-home message is you should not assume that your dark chocolate is free of milk, and you should not consume it if you have serious allergic reactions to milk, regardless of the label. I have a checklist of 14 alias names for milk-derived ingredients which may be hidden in your food. My list will help you find undisclosed milk in your candy bars and chocolates. If youd like to receive that as well as the longer version of todays article, sign up for my newsletter at www.suzycohen.com, and I will email this to you next week. Ill also tell you why some chocolate bars arent good for vegans. Heres a fun fact, white chocolate doesnt contain any cacao whatsoever, its just a combination of cocoa butter, sugar, and milk, but no cocoa solids like dark and milk chocolate have. Its definitely something to avoid if youre dairy-intolerant or allergic to milk. In closing, when it comes to dark chocolate, the dairy free claims and statements on the label are best completely disregarded if the manufacturer fails to use dedicated machinery and equipment due to cross-contamination.

Top 10 Real Estate SalesCourtesy of Royal Shell Real Estate 31B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 2018 My Stars FOR WEEK OF NOVEMBER 5, 2018Aries (March 21 to April 19) You enjoy the attention early in the week, but it might be a good idea to opt for some privacy by weeks end so that you can have more time to consider an upcoming decision. Taurus (April 20 to May 20) You unearth some surprising facts. Now you need to consider how to use them to your advantage. Meanwhile, it might be best to keep what youve learned secret for now. Gemini (May 21 to June 20) A comment by a colleague piques your curiosity to know more. Best advice: Youll find people more likely to offer information if youre discreet when making your inquiries. Cancer (June 21 to July 22) Your energy levels begin to rise by midweek. This allows you to catch up with your heavy workload and still have plenty of get-up-and-go to go out on the town this weekend. Leo (July 23 to August 22) Youre probably roaring your head off about a perceived slight from a longtime critic. Ignore it. That person might just be trying to goad you into doing something you might later regret. Virgo (August 23 to September 22) The early part of the week is open to spontaneity. Then its time to settle into your usual routine to get all your tasks done. A personal situation could require more attention from you. Libra (September 23 to October 22) A meeting of the minds on a workplace project might well develop into something more personal for Librans looking for romance. Aspects also are favorable for platonic relationships. Scorpio (October 23 to November 21) A more-positive mood might be difficult to assume in light of a recent problem involving the health of someone special. But by weeks end, your emotional barometer should start to rise. Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21) Look for a changed attitude from a former adversary once he or she realizes you have your colleagues full support. Now you can refocus your energies on that workplace project. Capricorn (December 22 to January 19) This time, a difference of opinion might not be resolved in your favor. But be patient. It could all ultimately work out to your advantage, as new information begins to develop. Aquarius (January 20 to February 18) A tug of war develops between the artistic Aquarians creative aspect and his or her practical side. Best advice: Prioritize your schedule so you can give appropriate time to both. Pisces (February 19 to March 20) You could be entering a career phase awash with job-related demands. But avoid being swamped by the overflow and, instead, keep treading water as you deal with demands one by one. Born This Week: You are an exceptionally loyal person, and youre respected for your ability to keep the secrets entrusted to you. It was early 20th-century Irish author Robert Wilson Lynd who made the following sage observation: The belief in the possibility of a short decisive war appears to be one of the most ancient and dangerous of human illusions. If youre concerned about the rising cost of groceries, be grateful that youre not a starfish parent. A young starfish eats 10 times its own weight in food every day. The first car to offer seat belts the Nash Rambler rolled off the assembly line in 1950. You might be surprised to learn that the British are not the greatest tea drinkers in the world. That honor belongs to the Irish, who consume 1,200 cups per capita every year. The final battle of the Napoleonic Wars took place in June 1815 in the United Kingdom of the Netherlands, a site now in present-day Belgium. The Battle of Waterloo, where Napoleon met his final defeat, was delayed because the French emperor and battle commander couldnt mount his horse. According to historians, Napoleon was suffering from hemorrhoids and couldnt bear to sit in a saddle. Sandpaper can sharpen a dull pair of scissors. Fold a piece of sandpaper in half, rough side out, and make repeated cuts until the blades are sharp again. Fried lotus leaves are a popular snack in China. Youre probably aware that hot air is lighter than cold air, but did you know that hot water is heavier than cold water? Those who study such things say that Spain has more wildlife than any other European nation. The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good. -Samuel Johnson STRANGE BUT TRUE SCRAMBLERS Hortoons THOUGHT FOR THE DAY Subdivision City Year BuiltSquare FootageListing Price Selling Price Days On Market Ibis Cove At Bonita BayBonita Springs 1997 3,942 $1,999,000 $1,635,000 54 Sanibel Isles Sanibel 1963 2,394 $1,850,000 $1,600,000 301 Fa Lanes Bayview Captiva 2006 3,808 $1,794,000 $1,698,500 889 Shenandoah Fort Myers 2003 4,427 $1,250,000 $1,115,000 36 Las Lomas Cape Coral 2013 4,397 $895,000 $850,000 47 Not Applicable Cape Coral 2007 3,189 $869,800 $805,000 178 Waterside Estero 2000 2,964 $848,000 $775,000 362 Cape Coral Cape Coral 1989 2,822 $799,000 $745,000 138 Bayland HeightsFort Myers Beach 1979 1,758 $797,500 $795,000 3 Gumbo Limbo Sanibel 1987 1,857 $759,500 $690,000 246
