Wedding Winners
Talke Their Vows
From the moment the bride arrived
at the Edison & Ford Winter
Estates in a classic burgundy Model
T, it was clear that this was no ordinary
wedding. The small ceremony was a
sweet celebration for Amanda Lustig
and David Daugherty of Cape Coral
and North Fort Myers, the winners of
the Lemonade Wedding giveaway. The
couple took their vows on Sunday,
September 12.
"It's a clich&, but when life gives you
lemons, you're supposed to make lemon-

Industries of Southwest Florida, one of
the Lemonade Wedding sponsors. "Our
goal was to make something sweet for
a couple who's been through some sour

Historic Downtown Fort Myers, Then And Now

Cities Service Station

The vintage build-
ing's most notable
feature is its pleasing
symmetry, accentuat-
ed by the slim rectan-
gular slab that slices
through the center,
adding verticality and
dividing the office
and garage areas.
Because the sta-
tion was located a
short distance from
the old Fort Myers
High School and the
sawdust field where
kids practiced sports,
it was a convenient
place to stop for a
Two people who
grew up in Fort
Myers remember the
stylish service station
well from the 1940s.
Dick Jungferman
recalls that Coley
Westbrook owned
the business and
sponsored a city soft-
ball team. The pitch-
ers used to practice
at the station.
Pete Bowen had
an after-school job

1940s and used to

In the early 1920s, a one-story catty-cornered building
replaced a two-story wood-frame house with a big front porch.
In the late 1920s, the Palm Filling Station was established
on the busy corner. Through the 1930s and 1940s, the word
"Palm" was replaced by many names, including William Hood,
Anderson Clifford, and Travis Parkinson as the station changed

taught his young employees
well, says Bowen.
He instructed the deliv-
ery boys in a roll-tuck-fold
technique that didn't require
rubber bands. The tight roll
survived the long throw from
street to porch that was
required otherwise, com-
plaints would ensue.
The 1950s brought a
new trend, when the sleek
building became a Cities
Service Station with the
green and white triangle
logo on its sign. The Cities
Service Company had been
founded in 1910 by pioneer
oilman, Henly L. Doherty.
During that era, the building
was first Roy's Cities Service
Station and then White's

The company became

rebranded with the "trimark"

Jonathan Wadas, Ryan Harris, and Christian Augostenborg, Edison Ford Muckers who will
be presenting lab presentations and invention demonstrations in the museum

During the next year, the Edison Lab will be undergoing about a million dollar res-
toration which has been funded by a variety of state, federal and local grants. "During
most of the project, the building will remain open to the public so that they can watch
the restoration as it progresses. There will be times when the museum will close for
safety reasons, and that s when the Muckers hands-on demos will be really important,"
said spokesperson Lisa Sbuttoni. "That s also when we will have free return passes
available .
With the laboratory restoration underway and more than $12 million in improve-
ments already under its belt, the Edison & Ford Winter Estates is completing nearly 10
years of restoration to a dozen different residential buildings and structures including
the 1915 Edison Portland Cement Swimming Pool.
The estates is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. For additional information call

C. Azell Prince, Jr., the youngest Mucker at the Edison Botanic Research Lab

There' sa new way to experience the Edison Botanic Research Laboratory at
the Edison & Ford Winter Estates while the 1928 building has a new roof put
on during the next few weeks. A group of historic interpreters, who call them-
selves the Edison Ford Muckers, will be presenting hands-on demonstrations and lab
presentations throughout the day with some of the famous friends' favorite inven-
tions. This includes inventions such as the light bulb, the phonograph, the automo-
bile assembly line with a replica Ford Model-T, and making a rubber-like polymer.
The Muckers hands-on demos are presented in the estates museum and are inter-
esting for all ages. A hundred years ago, Edison called his group of laboratory and
invention workers the Muckers, and encouraged their discoveries. Today kids especially
enjoy trying on a lab coat and making the polymer that Edison created in his labora-
tory next door. Most of the lab equipment has been brought into the museum during
restoration including test tubes, extraction equipment, grinders and other artifacts. A
film will also be shown about the Edison, Ford, and Firestone s quest for rubber which
was based in Fort Myers.

The best steakhouses in the country
know that the key to the juciest, most
tender steaks is dry aging. The Sandy
Butler Gourmet Market now offers in-
house dry aged beef.
Dry aging occurs while the beef is in
a refrigerated cooler, at a specific tem-
perature and humidity, for 10 to 27 days.
When beef is dry aged, moisture evapo-
rates from the meat creating a greater
concentration of beef flavor and taste.
Secondly, the beef's natural enzymes
break down the muscle, tenderizing it.
Most of the tenderizing activity occurs in
the the first 10 to 14 days. Some high-
quality restaurants, like The Sandy Butler,
age their meat for 27 days or more.
Increased aging adds to the shrinkage and
trim loss due to the drying.
The Sandy Butler Restaurant and
Gourmet Market is located at 17650
San Carlos Boulevard, Fort Myers. The
market is open seven days per week from
10 a.m. to 8 p.m. The restaurant is open

Specialists Sha re Insights On
Challenges Affecting Local Walters
A re you curious how, or if, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill will impact local
Fisheries? Interested in what's being done to combat persistent marine debris
~problems? Wondering why a red-drift algae washes up on your beach? Or
why healthy mangrove forests are critical for a healthy estuary? Learn about these
environmental issues and more as local researchers, educators and non-profit
groups share their expertise at Edison State College (ESC).
Throughout the week of September 20 to 24, Edison State College's Lee Campus
will host Ocean Commotion 2010, a series of events, lectures and films intended to
raise awareness about marine environmental issues and highlight what is being done
locally to protect and preserve our beautiful waters.
Dr. Rozalind Jester, a science professor at Edison State, has worked closely with
several local marine science and conservation groups as part of her course curriculum.
She and her students have also volunteered for both Keep Lee County Beautiful and
Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation to assist in cleanup and litter prevention
programs and habitat restoration projects. Through these activities, Jester realized that
more people should be aware of work being done locally and asked a few of her con-
tacts to share their insights with the community at Edison State.
Jester is enthusiastic about the program. "I hope that people take away from the
programs a deeper understanding of how delicately balanced the marine ecosystem is,
knowledge of the most common issues threatening our waters, and a sense of hope
that there are a lot of positive changes being made to protect, conserve and restore
the health of our oceans and local estuaries." she said.

Snook season
on the east coast
of Florida will reopen September 17.
Snook fisheries on both coasts have
been closed since our record January
freezes, which caused big snook kills this
year. Our snook fishery on this coast
took a much greater hit than on the
Atlantic coast due to the fact that our
fish do not have the close proximity to
deeper warmer water.
I know a lot of anglers out there like
to eat snook but this is a good thing long
term for our gulf coast snook population.
Regular places I see hundreds of snook
this time of year have only a few fish.
There have been some snook in the pass-
es and on the beaches but nothing close
to the huge numbers that there should
be. Anything that can be done to restore
the numbers of this premier gamefish is
a good thing. Catch-and-release fishing is
still allowed but handle these fish as care-
fully as you can.

Snook Season

Wow was it hot out on the water this
week! Searing mid-morning summer sun,
high humidity and no breeze made it feel
like you where in a sauna. The water
temperature was often well over the
90-degree mark by mid-afternoon in the
bay. When it gets this hot, shallow water
fishing really slows at the hottest part of
the day. As expected the early morn-
ing bite and the night bite were the best
The first few hours after sunrise until
mid morning really brought some great
trout action this week and some of the
bigger trout I have seen in months. Trout
really like the low light conditions and
could be caught easily on top water plugs
until about 8 a.m. Some of my favorite
topwaters are Skittenvalks, Zara Puppies,
She Dogs and Chug Bugs. Use white,
silver or shiner-like colors. If you're look-
ing for a big "gator trout," the bigger plug
the better. Top water plug fishing is a
blast and is really one of the best methods
to target these trout when they are over
shallow grass bottom. As the sun gets
higher I like to switch to a suspending
twitch bait like the Mirrordine and work it
out in a little deeper water. Trout over 20
inches were common this week.
I also caught these trout with clients
a little later in the morning on live baits.
Big freelined shiners worked slowly over
shallow grass flats drew aggressive strikes
and lots of keeper size trout. The key to
working shiners in this shallow water is to
keep the rod tip up high and keep lifting
the bait as you slowly wind. If you work it
too slowly, the bait will hang in the grass.
Ninety percent of the bites come as the
shiner is falling.
Bobber fishing with small live pinfish
and grunts was also a good way to go.
The biggest trout I have seen since the
spring was caught this week by a fellow
captain while fishing a tournament. This
money-maker monster 4-1/2 pound,
28-inch trout ate a grunt under a bobber.
Bait schools could be found all over
the sound this week. Any place you
found feeding birds you found good,

quick and easy
fishing action.
Jacks, lady-
fish, Spanish
mackerel and
trout were the
main species
working these
schools but
this time of
year you never
know what's
going to pop
up. Save a
ladyfish and rig
it on a larger
rod and give it
a shot. There
are usually
some bigger
sharks working
these feeding
frenzies too.
Redfish fish-
ing during the
higher tides
was pretty slow
for me this
week with only
a few fish here
and there. We

really start to
go off. With everything about a month
late this year it should begin any day
now. Reports of a few smaller schools
here and there have been coming in but
they are very scattered. Most of the reds
we caught this week were on cut bait fish-
ing the late afternoon high tide.
Cut mullet, ladyfish and even jumbo
frozen shrimp all caught reds during the
heat of the day. During the extreme heat
of the day the cut bait just seems to work
better than live bait as these fish just get
lazy and don't have to chase it down.
There have been a few early morning
redfish bites around the passes with the
end of the outgoing tide being the best

bet but nothing wide open like it should
be this time of year.
The calm mornings have been the
ideal conditions to get out and sight fish
for tarpon. Tarpon see very little angler
pressure this time of year and often feed
much more freely than they do in the
srn the mr grgingofon bait sch Ils
pods could be spotted rolling all over
the northern sound and gulf side along
the beaches too. Several times this week
while trout fishing I saw rolling fish and
even had a tarpon turn on a hooked trout
as we brought it up to the boat.
There are not the huge numbers here
like in the spring but how many tarpon in
a morning do you need to jump?

Call on Pain



CROW Case Of The Week:

by Brian Johnson
On June 22 an adult female raccoon found herself just
where she didn't want to be: on the corner of Del Prado
ro .and 28th Street in Cape Coral, trying to cross a busy

The 4.22-kilogram raccoon was struck by a car.
CROW volunteer Catherine Hughes assisted with the rescue,
and the animal was brought to the clinic.
"She had a pretty big laceration on her head, and dried blood
~1on her right eye," said Dr. Amber McNamara. "There was swell-
ing of the conjunctiva, and her right eye was kind of sunken while
her left eye seemed to bulge out. She also had wounds on her
back legs. She was really disoriented."
The creature was wiped out and offered no resistance to her exam or treatment.
Staff gave her arnica, valium, pain medication and topical anti-inflammatory drops in
her affected eye.
The medication soothed
her and her breathing nor-
The next day she was
able to sit up in her cage,
but it was obvious that she
felt dazed and in all kinds of
pain. Staff continued treat-
ments, including eye drops.
On Day 3 she drank a
good deal of Rebound, a
chicken-flavored electrolyte
beverage that is popular
among the patients. She
ate a little bit of AD, a cat
and dog food formula, that
"She was trying to walk,
but still wobbly," said Dr.
Amber. "The rest of the
time she wanted to hide."
On Day 5, as her ataxia
improved, staff moved her
to a double-wide cage so ....
there would be less han-
At the one-week mark
she looked alert enough to
earn a trip outdoors to the .,.
mammal complex. Staff
gave her a distemper vac- Raccoon
cine as a precaution.
The raccoon, having escaped possible death, made regular improvement and
seemed to be on track for an incident-free recovery. However, on Day 14, staff
noticed lameness in her gait. They added Meloxicam, an anti-inflammatory, to her
food to hopefully decrease inflammation and reduce discomfort; it was surmised that
she might have injured herself in the cage.
On Day 24, when she still exhibited lameness, staff decided to bring her back into
the clinic for reevaluation. They found a large abscess on her right knee.
With her under anesthesia, they took a radiograph and got another surprise: she
was carrying four babies. From the development of their skeletons, Dr. Amber thought
they had about one week until birth.
"We were really in a dilemma about the best cage to put her in for optimal heal-
ing... and motherhood," she said.
They injected her with an antibiotic to fight the infection in her knee, then placed
her in the Cannon Flight Cage.
"We discovered that she liked marshmallows, so we were able to put the antibiotic
pills in them, which she ate each night" said Dr. Amber.
They noticed she was spending most of her time hiding in the rafter at the top of
the cage so Rehabilitator Joe Stahl built a shelf there as a nest for the babies. About
five days later they heard the sound of the raccoon babies for the first time.
From that point they let nature take its course and tried to give them the space they
needed. She came down off the shelf each night to eat food from a bowl.
Six weeks after the babies were born, CROW released the lucky mom and the four
babies back to the wild.

Corkystern Passionflower

The unripe tiny fruit of corkystem passionflower

The ripe fruit is a favorite of birds

by Gerri Reaves

Corkystem passionflower (Passiflora suberosa) is a must-have for butterfly gar-
It is the host plant for several native butterflies, including the zebra longwing,
Florida's state butterfly, as well as julias and gulf fritillaries.
The yellow-green flowers bloom all year long. Although only about one-fourth of an
inch across, with five petals and five stamens, they are nevertheless a valuable nectar
source for butterflies.
The one-half inch oval fruit ripens from green to deep purple. This food source for
birds is said to be toxic for humans (unlike the larger fruit of the maypop passionflow-
er, which is edible), but many people claim they consume the fruit with no ill effects.
The evergreen leaves vary greatly in size and shape even on the same plant
- from linear, to lance-shaped, to lobed. However, the grooved corky stems of the
mature vine make it easy to identify.
Those stems can grow to 10 feet or more. Coiled tendrils allow the fast-growing
vine to travel by springing to a new surface, making it especially useful as a quick beau-
tiful fix for an exposed chain-link fence.
Corkystem passionflower requires no maintenance in a natural garden, and only
light pruning in a more formal one. Highly drought tolerant, the vine will thrive in a
variety of conditions.
This native will grow in almost any light condition and works well as a groundcover
or trellis vine.
It's prolific as a potted plant, too, so it's a favorite of butterfly gardeners limited to a
balcony or lanai.

Don't panic if you see a caterpillar chomping on the leaves. After all, that caterpillar
is part of the life cycle that produces the native butterflies we enjoy.
Anyway, the caterpillar will limit itself to the specific host plant it needs, and the
vine will re-foliate in a jiffy.
Avoid any use of pesticides on butterfly plants, and when buying butterfly-host
plants, be sure to inquire whether they have been treated with pesticides, which can
kill butterfly larvae.
Restraint will help ensure that butterfly populations survive.
Propagate corkystem passionflower with seeds or cuttings, or simply take advantage
of the new plants that will self-sow.

Local Artist Donating To CROW

Mixed-media artist Lindsey Wollard with her Endangered series of origami

The work of three area mixed-media artists is on display through October 2
at the Alliance for the Arts, Fort Myers. One of the artists, Lindsey Wollard,
is donating half of her proceeds from her origami series to the Clinic for the
Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) on Sanibel.
With a self proclaimed obsession for recycling, Wollard enjoys making artwork out
of the material that would otherwise be discarded. Pieces from her origami series,
Endangered, are made from the pages of land development and world population
books and mixed media. Each piece is priced at $2. She explains her motivation
by saying, "Our gluttonous practices resulting in deforestation, pollution, a growing
endangered species list, and animal cruelty are just some of the issues that inspire my

Arts for ACT Gallery Artists Reception
OnFriday, October
1, from 6 to 10
pI.m. Arts for ACT
will have an opening
reception for the October
featured artists, Renzos
Avila, Xavier Portilla and
Maria Pia Malerba titled
Clandestine comes
from a conspiracy of color, '
movement and myth where
everything is shown but
nothing is said.
Renzos Avila, of
Colombian and Italian
descent, graduated in 1987
in Bogota, Colombia with
an architecture degree and
began to design ecological
solutions for residential,
commercial and urban liv-
ing. His trend is very mod-
ern and focuses on speed
and movement, making acqua2 by Maria Pia Malerba
every project functional
and pleasing to the eye.
Avila calls his style "deconstructivism."' His projects are an application of regions,
architecture, and feng shui principles, which create a harmony in the environment.
Avila shows over and over the fragility of our planet and the reasons to care for it in
his projects. He has taught design at universities in Bogota, creating workshops where
students can feel one with the spaces they have designed.
His exhibition in Perugia, Italy in 1999 showed 16 pieces in granite celebrating the
"fertility" of the planet. His extensive lamp sculptures have been shown in many coun-
tries in South America. In 2004, he presented his latest lamp exhibit called Sculptures
of Light, using recycled materials that displayed the contrast of Mother Nature.
Avila has written books on urbanism in Spanish and collaborated on several books
on rural architecture in Columbia. He is a master model maker, and a visual artist.

Endangered Fish

Endangered Rep#1le

Wollard works with other recycled materials such as steel, pegboard and beeswax.
Pieces made from these will also be on display in the exhibit.
The Alliance for the Arts supports the artists and arts organizations in the area as
the state designated Local Arts Agency for Lee County. Its galleries are open from 9
a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturday. The
Alliance is located at 10091 McGregor Boulevard just south of Colonial Boulevard.
Call 939-2787 or go to www.ArtInLee.org.M

Xavier Portilla creation

Currently, Avila resides in the United States and is the principal of Renzos Designs
Green Developers.
Maria Pia Malerba is a well-known Italian fine art artist who recently moved to
Southwest Florida and brings her gift of joy and spirituality through a variety of
techniques including abstracts, hyperrealism, and mixed media. She was born in
Supersano, Italy and graduated with a degree of art and scenography from the
Accademia di Belle Arti in Lecce, Italy. In 2008, she presented Pope Benedict XVI a
Madonna painting on stone.
She expresses herself through abstracts, and travels on a journey in a world made
of gestures, colors, and materials. Her paintings are rich in intensity and spirituality.

Pitching Phenom From
FGCU Rescues White Sox Bullpen,
Becomes Closer After Just 10 Innings
by Ed Frank
Afew months ago he was pitching college baseball for
Florida Gulf Coast University here in Fort Myers. Today
Ahe is the closer for the Chicago White Sox who began a
life or death series against the Minnesota Twins this week.
Chris Sale, the 21-year-old left-handed fireballer, was this
Year's first-round draft pick by the White Sox the 13th overall
selection and after just 10.1 innings of minor league pitching
~he was called up to the Majors.
9 ~ It's an amazing accomplishment when you realize that only
four players from last year's draft have made it to the Majors.
Sale already has been tabbed as "The Steal of the 2010 Major
League Baseball Draft."
The 21-year-old Sale from Lakeland, Florida hurled three seasons for Gulf Coast
and was the leading Cape Cod Baseball League pitcher in strikeouts and innings
pitched. He was named the league's top prospect by Baseball America. He signed
with the White Sox for $1.656 million.
In his brief Minor League stint, he recorded 19 strikeouts before the White Sox sent
for him August 6 for his Major League debut that was less than spectacular.
The six-foot six-inch Sale was called from the bullpen in an eighth-inning 1-1 tie
against Baltimore. Obviously with the jitters, he walked his first batter on four pitches
and gave up a single to the second batter. White Sox man Ozzie Guillen then rescued
the youngster from further embarrassment.
But it has been a far different picture since then.
With the White Sox bullpen decimated by injury, Sale has come to the rescue
although he was drafted as a starter not as a reliever. The rookie has become their
closer in the absence of the injured Bobby Jenks.

E he Florida native may be young in
years, but he is a quick learner when it
comes to dealing with umpires..
A week ago, while garnering his second
save in a game against the Kansas City
Royals, he removed his gold necklace to
avoid a confrontation with home plate --
umpire Angel Hernandez who had already
ejected his manager.
The necklace, a gift from his grand- ~ ~
mother, kept coming out of his shirt while
pitching and the umpire apparently told,
him repeatedly to tuck it back in.
"I was like, you know what, I'm just i
going to avoid the situation especially with 3 "
Ozzie getting thrown out. I didn't want to r
push any buttons. It's a necklace, it's not
like I'm taking off my right arm," he was
quoted. Chris Sale
Sale could play a pivotal role in this
week's three-game showdown clash
between the Sox and the Twins who went into Chicago's U.S. Cellular Field with a six-
game lead with only 19 games remaining.
The red-hot Twins entered the series having won eight of the last nine games and a
Major League best record of 39-16 since July's All-Star break.
Twins Manager Ron Gardenhire said recently that he wanted to win the American
League Central Division championship in the regular 162-game season, not a repeat
of the last two seasons when the Twins lost a one-game playoff to the White Sox in
the 163rd game in 2008 and won a playoff game with the Detroit Tigers last year.C

Nordic walkers

With a pair of walking poles
in your hands, a basic stroll
becomes a surprisingly easy,
full-body workout. There are many ben-
efits of Nordic Walking such as building
upper body strength, burning more calo-
ries than an average walk without poles,
reducing stress to your knees and lower
back, and improving your posture.
Some of the past participants of the
Nordic Walking Workshops are saying,
"great class, very informative," "Wow... I
didn't think I could walk this far," "Boy, I
have not felt this good in a long time.
Nordic Walking is an effective path to
physical and mental health. No matter
how hectic your schedule, just 30 minutes
a day of Nordic Walking will improve

Financial Focus
GThe od h

Bad Ad ThO 6

by Jennifer Basey

Ay uotna aets an investor,

digest a great deal
of information,
some positive and
some negative. And
right now, you can
find both the good
and the bad but
most importantly,
you can find investment opportunities.
Unfortunately, many people are focus-
ing on the gloomy headlines: the possibil-
ity of a double-dip recession, European
debt concerns, slowing growth in China
and other factors. And when investors get
jittery, they tend to flee the stock market,
which leads to the declines we've seen in
recent days.
That's the bad news. The good news
is that there really is some good news out
there. Consider the following:
*Sustainable economic recovery -
The economic recovery is already a year
old. In fact, the economy grew by about
three percent in the first half of this
year one of the largest turnarounds in
50 years. We're now entering a more
sustainable recovery pace. And although
there may be some bumps in the road,

Independent judges will select one
Lee, Collier or Charlotte County business
from the field of applicants to receive the
2010 award.
Winners will be recognized Thursday,
November 4, during a luncheon cer-
emony at Harborside Event Center in
downtown Fort Myers.
Olympic Gold Medalist Nikki Stone is
returning as the keynote speaker. Stone,
who spoke at the 2006 event, brought
home America s first-ever gold medal
in inverted aerial skiing at the 1998
Olympic Winter Games after overcoming
a career-threatening chronic spinal injury
less than two years earlier.

there's probably little chance of a double-
dip recession, an event that, historically,
is quite rare.
*Low inflation, interest rates -
Inflation is currently running at a manage-
able two percent per year, while interest
rates remain at near all-time lows. The
ability to borrow inexpensively during
periods of low inflation historically leads
to stronger economic demand.
*Strong corporate earnings -
Following the end of the recession, cor-
porate profits have improved dramatically
and companies are using their strong
profits and growing cash balances to
boost their dividends. This is also good
news, because companies typically don t
raise dividends unless they're somewhat
confident about the future.
*Stocks priced favorably Many qual-
ity stocks are attractively valued today,
based on their price-to-earnings ratio, or
P/E. Typically, the lower the P/E, the
better the value. Currently, the P/E of
the stocks in the Standard & Poors 500
is about 12; over the past 22 years, the
average P/E was 18.5.
*Historical precedent The past
decade has not been a good one for
stocks. But during the past 80 years,
whenever stocks have done poorly over
a decade (average annualized 10-year
returns of less than four percent), the
returns over the next 10 years have been
strong (annualized average returns of
12.5 percent per year). While past per-
formance can't guarantee future results,
history is still on the side of the optimistic

Airport Wins Award With Maltz Book
Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) has received an award from Airports Council International -
North America (ACI-NA) in the 2010 Excellence in Marketing and Communications Contest.
SThe Fort Myers airport received second place in the Creative Innovations Promotional Items category for
its Airline Appreciation Gift.
Lee County Port Authority public affairs worked with Alan S. Maltz, the official fine art photographer for the
state of Florida, and the Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau to produce a high-end coffee table book branded
to the region and airport. This distinctive gift of appreciation was given to airlines that serve the airport to remind
them of the unique, world-renowned beauty of Southwest Florida.
The competition, which is held annually, received nearly 250 entries from more than 55 airports of all sizes
throughout the U.S. and Canada. Entries encompass work in public relations, communications and marketing and
provide airports the opportunity to be honored for the quality of their work. The 2010 contest judges included more

MY Stars +-t
ARIES (Mlarch 21 to April 19) Personal
matters claim a good deal of the Lamb's time
in the early part of the week. But by midweek,
pragmatic considerations (work, school, job-
seeking, etc.) begin to take priority.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The sea-
sonal shift ignites the Bovine's creative aspects.
You could do well if you trIy to combine your
penchant for innovation with the more prag-
matic demands of the week.
GEMINI (Mlay 21 to June 20) Ideas come
easily to you this week. And never mind that
some might suggest they're umworkable and/or
impractical. It's your vision that counts. Work
them out and see what tumns up.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Personal
matters continue to dominate the early part of
the week. By midweek, more workaday issues
once again begin to emerge. Balance your time
to give both the attention they need.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) Anew contact
could provide an expanded opportunity. But be
sure you get all the facts before you consider
signing on. Ask questions, and be waly if you
don't get the right answers.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) An
unexpected development could cause some
supposedly resolved disagreements to reignite.
Deal with the situation before it leads to some
really serious problems.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A
clash of work-linked viewpoints needs to be
discussed openly, honestly and calmly by all
concerned before it can impede progress on an
ongomg project.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21)
The Scorpion's pragmatic side helps you accept
the possibility that a change of plans might be
the wise thing to do. Be sure to weigh all your
considerations carefully.
SAG~ITTARIUTS (November 22 to
December 21) Some people might not take no
for an answer. Never mind. Keep your resolve
if you're sure you don't want to be imrolved in
a potentially sticky situation.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to JanuaO'
19)All other facts and figures aside, it's what
you leamn about potential colleagues that can be
most helpful in assessing any decisions you're
likely to make regarding a new project.
AQUARIu(aUS (Jan~bruuay20tFera'

18) You might want to reconsider some of
your outside conunitments if they continue to
demand more time than you can spare. Be hon-
est with yourself when making a decision.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Pay
attention to that inner voice of Piscean wisdom
counseling you to remove those rose-colored
glasses and take an honest look at any decisions
you might face this week.
BORN THIS WEEK: You have a pen-
chant for persuasion that would make you a
fine candidate for a political career.

*On Sept. 25, 1789, the first Congress of
the United States approves 12 amendments to
the U.S. Constitution, and sends them to the
states for ratification. The amendments, known
as the Bill of Rights, were influenced by the
English Bill of Rights of 1689.
*On Sept. 23, 1846, at the Berlin
Observatory, Gennan astronomer Johann
Gottfried Galle discovers the planet Neptune.
The blue gas giant, which has a diameter four
times that of Earth, was named for the Roman
god of the sea. It completes an orbit of the Sun
once every 165 years.
*On Sept. 21, 1938, without warning, a
powerful Category 3 hurricane slams into Long
Island and southern New England. All told,
700 people were killed by the hurricane, nearly
9,000 homes and buildings were destroyed and
nearly 3,000 ships were sunk or wrecked.
*On Sept. 26, 1945, Lt. Col. Peter Dewey,
a U.S. Anny officer with the Office of Strategic
Services (OSS) in Vietnam, is shot and killed
in Saigon. Dewey was the head of a seven-man
team sent to Vietnam to search for missing
American pilots. He was the first of nearly
59,000 Americans killed in Vietnam.
*On Sept. 22, 1953, the first four-level
(or "stack") interchange in the world opens in
Los Angeles, at the intersection of the Harbor,
Hollywood, Pasadena and Santa Ana freeways.
It consisted of 32 lanes of traffic weaving
in eight directions at once. Today, the inter-
change's cost of $5.5 million would pay for just
250 feet of urban freeway.
*On Sept. 24, 1969, the trial of the
"Chicago Seven" begins. At the height of the
antiwar and civil-rights movements, young left-
ists had organized protest marches at the 1968
Democratic National Comrention and were thus
accused of conspiring to incite a riot. In 1970,

the comrictions and contempt charges were
overtumed on appeal.
*On Sept. 20, 1973, Billie Jean King
defeats Bobby Riggs, 6-4, 6-3, 6-3, in a widely
publicized exhibition tennis match dubbed the
"Battle of the Sexes." The match was set up
after the 55-year-old Riggs routed Australian
star Margaret Court four months' earlier on
Mother's Day.

*It was existential psychologist Rollo May
who made the following sage observation: "It
is an ironic habit of human beings to run faster
when we have lost our way."
*Two countries are tied for the nation
encompassing the most time zones. It's no
surprise that Russia is one of them, but it
seems odd that the other would be France. It's
true, though, once you take a look at a map
of French territories around the world, you'll
see. There are French Polynesia in the Pacific
Ocean, the island of Reunion off the east coast
ofAfrica, various holdings in the Caribbean,
and New Caledonia off the east coast of
Australia, among others.
*If you had to choose, would you rather be
bitten by a skunk or sprayed by one? The crea-
tures can't do both things at once.
*Yes, there's a word for it: The plastic tips
you find on shoelaces are known as aglets.
*If you're a professional flute player, it's
likely that your instrument is made from ster-
ling silver, 14-carat gold or platinum.
*A snail's teeth are located in rows along
its tongue.
*It's a conunonly held belief that the
Coriolis effect causes water to drain out
of sinks and toilets in one direction in the
Nor then Hemisphere, while it drains in the
opposite direction in the Southemn Hemisphere.
As it tumns out, this isn't true. Drains are so
small that the Coriolis effect has no measurable
influence at all. It's the shape of the sink and
whether or not it's level that determines the
direction of the drainage.

"Electricity is actually made up of extreme-
ly tiny particles called electrons, that you can-
not see with the naked eye unless you have
been drinking." -- Dave Barry

Stone, Smash Mouth) and Rich Herzfeld,
make sure the teens keep physically fit,
have voice training and eat well, even
avoiding dairy and certain foods before
shows. They do not tolerate any second
rat wa har atsfirst. I missed evely-
body so much. After a while I realized
this is what I want, what I need. I feel
that this is something truly amazing, it's
what I love... and this is actually happen-
ing," Duran said. Now he's part of what
he calls "the KD Family," which consists
of managers, coaches, producers, band
members and their families, drivers and
even a home school tutor, "all dedicated
tou ran has emerged as the front
man for Kicking Daisies. He appears
mature, confident and outgoing and says
he enjoys talking to the audience and
encouraging them to join in.
The band already has a fan base that
extends well beyond the Northeast, where
they have performed over a hundred
concerts. They write many of their own
songs, have recorded 11 tracks for their
first CD and have filmed their first music
video called Innocence with Edge.
One notable event recently was when
the band played at the Troubador in Los
Angeles, which was featured on FOX-
News LA.
It still is hard for the band members to
believe that all this has happened in such
a short time.
"There are moments on stage where
we look at each other and say, 'This is a
dream'," Duran said.

On Saturday, September 18, three

Daisies will play live at Toad's Place in
New Haven, Connecticut, one of the pre-
mier music halls in the country. Sharing
the bill with them will be That's The
Problem and Split For The City. Virtually
every major touring act has appeared on
Toad's stage in the past 20 years, includ-
ing The Rolling Stones, who kicked off
their 1989 Steel Wheels tour there.
A lot has happened since Duran
moved to Connecticut 18 months ago
and he will tell you that the road to rock
stardom is often like a boot camp and
that the move required sacrifices from all
the family.
Those left behind include his mother
Carmen Rodriguez, aunt and uncle, Lorin
and Chris Arundel of Fort Myers, and
grandmother Di Saggau, columnist for
the Isand Sun and The River Weekly
Duran's first two months in Milford
consisted of practicing seven hours a day
