Historic Downtown Fort Myers, Then And Now

Evolution Of The Heitman Building
by Gerri Reaves
T T Then the Heitman Building came on the scene 113
+- \ A A years ago, it was described as one of the most modern
V V W and well-stocked grocery stores in Southwest Florida.
.y Ever since, Fort Myers' first brick building has played an impor-
tant role in downtown business life.
Harvie E. Heitman built it to replace his two-story frame
grocery store on the same site, the northwest corner of First
and Jackson. Ambrose M. McGregor was his financial partner
in the venture.
The historic photo, circa 1910, shows the structure in its
first incarnation as a highly successful grocery store.
Notice the wide metal awnings and the name "Heitman" at the top of the cater-
cornered parapet. The man second from the left and under the awning is identified
as Boyd Clifton Foxworthy, a well-known Fort Myers merchant and postmaster. He
also worked for Heitman in the collection department in the Bank of Fort Myers.
Originally from North Carolina, Heitman had come to the city in 1888 at the
age of 16 to work for his merchant great-uncle, Howell A. Parker. When he built
his own new store 10 years later, he launched a brilliant business career. In fact,
it's difficult to calculate the business and civic leader's degree of influence during his
short life of 49 years.
The construction of the Heitman Building began on October 1, 1897 by con-
tractors Levick & Moore of Tampa. MJ Miller of Tampa was the architect.
Less than three weeks later, the cornerstone was laid, containing the latest issue


The Heitman Building was completed in 1898. In this circa 1908 photo, Boyd Clifton

Some 145,000
bricks went into the " o w

structure. The lower
floor was devoted to
Heitman's mercantile
business.
On the exterior
were ornamental fea- /
tures of malleable iron, I ,
as well as balconies
and awnings. Large .
plate-glass windows
provided display space
and natural light. These first-floor windows, now sealed off, originally provided

also provided natural
light and ventilation.
And talk about cutting edge -- the store was lighted with 10 electric lamps, a new
service in the pioneer town.
Customers no doubt appreciated the sidewalks along the still-unpaved streets.
A concrete sidewalk ran along First Street and one of brick on the Jackson Street
side.

Celebrate Edison's Favorite Holiday
T he Fourth of July is believed to have been Thomas Edison's favorite holiday and the Edison & Ford Wint- i
Estates is celebrating the day with half price admission for Lee County residents.
On the Fourth of July, Edison would devote the entire day to his children waking up early in the morn-
ing to set off fireworks. The family would celebrate the holiday with American favorites - watermelon and ice
cream. An invoice dated in 1893 lists the elaborate purchases the Edison family made for their Fourth of
July celebration. Written on the bill, "This Bill Is For Fireworks Only," and included two dozen packages of
Electric Torp., one Dragon's Nest, one Devil Among the Tailor, one Surprise Box, one Floral Fount(ain),
one (dozen) Rockets, one (dozen) 10 B.R. Candles, 1 lb. Colored Fore, and one Firework Balloon 20 ft.
It is also believed Edison's favorite variety of firecrackers were the ones he invented and created him-
self, that had a little more TNT added.
Visitors must show proof of residency for half price admissionand the ticket is good for all tours
including the new Site Historian Tour and Edison Ford Young Inventor's Tour.
In addition, the estates will be displaying artwork by internationally known artist Leoma Lovegrove. Q
Edison, A Yankee Doodle Boy, is a new series of five pieces honoring Thomas Edison. Lovegrove's '
artwork will be available for purchase including incandescent light bulbs, prints, note cards and original
artwork.
The estates is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. For additional information call 334-7419 or
visit t www.edisonfordwinterestates.org.

Heitman Building
Even the 30- by 50-foot storage
room received rave reviews.
The second floor contained six rooms
or offices, including Heitman's. Among
his first tenants were WC Battey, who
rented the front two rooms for his real
estate business, and Louis A. Hendry,
who moved his law office into the cor-
ner on Jackson.
Heitman's brother, Gilmer, part-
nered with him in the general store,
which came to specialize in groceries,
specifically "fancy" goods, catering to
the growing yachting and winter tourist
trade. The store's goods rivaled those
found in large cities, according to the
Fort Myers Press.
Heitman's business instincts were
exceptional, and whether intentional
or not, his opening of the new store
coincided with the opening of the grand
Royal Palm Hotel just east on First
Street. That hotel attracted wealthy
tourists from across the nation.
A natural-born businessman, he often
embarked on a new venture even before
the current one was brought to comple-
tion.
In January 1924, a little more than
a year after Heitman died, the store
held a going-out-of-business sale. United
Markets later moved in.
In the 1930s, Sears Roebuck
Company took up a long residence,
bringing Art Deco touches to the build-
ing's facade. But decades later, like too


many other downtown businesses, that
mainstay departed once the Edison Mall
initiated the age of the shopping mall.
In 1973, another legendary business
moved into the Heitman Building. M.
Flossie Hill Company, started in 1905
by "Miss Flossie." But before long, that
historic business also joined the exodus
to the mall.
In 1978, the building was temporar-
ily vacant, probably for the first time.
Wee People infant ware, followed by
Three-In-One Antiques, occupied it in
the early 1980s. The building's retail
history ceased when Nautilus Fitness
Center used it for overflow space for
the remainder of the decade, succeeded
by law offices in the 1990s.
If you visit the corner of First and
Jackson now, you'll not see fancy gro-
ceries in the window, but you'll see that
the historic building just keeps on going.
Today RE/MAX occupies the first-
floor corner, RESN an office on the
Jackson Street side, and Gulf Bank
second-story office space.
After you check-out the latest rein-
carnation of the building, walk the
short distance to the Southwest Florida
Museum of History at 2031 Jackson
Street. There you'll see a miniature
replica of First Street in 1900, with
the red-brick Heitman Building on the
corner.
Be sure to see the museum's exciting
exhibit, Mambo Man, a tribute to Pedro
"Cuban Pete" Aguilar.
For information, call 321-7430 or go
to swflmuseumofhistory.com. Museum


hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday
through Saturday.
Then travel south to one of the
area's best historical research centers,

at 10091 McGregor Boulevard, located

Blue Green
Algae In The
Caloosahatchee
by Lee County Commissioner,
Ray Judah
The presence of toxic blue-
green algae upstream of the
Franklin Lock and Dam in the
Caloosahatchee River is a vivid reminder
of the South Florida Water Management
District's (SFWMD) failure to properly
manage our precious water resources.
Beholden to the powerful sugar
industry, the SFWMD permits wasteful
discharge of millions of gallons of fresh
water from Lake Okeechobee to tide
during the wet season. This provides opti-
mum growing conditions for sugar cane,
but results in excessive polluted water dis-
charge to the Caloosahatchee and coastal
estuaries. Further harm occurs in the dry
season when the SFWMD shuts down
minimum flow to the Caloosahatchee
River needed to prevent harmful concen-
trations of algae and hypersaline condi-
tions.
The SFWMD, in fact, spends millions
of taxpayer's dollars to install and operate
large pumps during drought conditions
to direct water from Lake Okeechobee
to the sugar cane fields while suspending
any flow to the Caloosahatchee needed
to protect habitat critical to the lifecycle
of our fisheries.
This cycle of destruction and degra-
dation of our environment causes sig-
nificant harm to our local economy and
quality of life. The Lee County Health
Department recently issued a Health
Advisory precluding any human or ani-
mal contact with the Caloosahatchee
due to the harmful blue-green algae
blooms and the presence of toxic cya-
nobacteria. The vast media coverage of
the health issues and the graphic images
being aired throughout the world on the
condition in the Caloosahatchee create
a marked impact to our fragile tourism
and real estate industries.
The SFWMD and the sugar industry
would argue that the guidance docu-
ment known as Adaptive Protocols,
used to manage low water levels in
Lake Okeechobee, authorizes water
allocation exclusively to agriculture and
utilities while restricting environmental


releases to the Caloosahatchee. In fact,
the Adaptive Protocols provide guid-
ance to water managers for discretion-
ary releases to protect the ecosystem.
Furthermore, Chapter 373.042 and
373.0421 Florida Statutes require the
SFWMD to declare and institute Phase
III water restrictions (45 percent reduc-
tions) for all permitted users when our
rivers and coastal estuaries experience
significant harm.
It is not as if the dry conditions were
unforeseen. As early as the fall of 2010,
the SFWMD was forecasting drier than
normal conditions and the real poten-
tial for water shortages. Rather than
implementing common sense cutbacks
on agricultural and urban users, the
SFWMD's only action was to recom-
mend cutting off environmental releases
to the Caloosahatchee. No action was
taken until March 2011 when the
SFWMD placed a modest 15 percent
water reduction on agriculture and utili-
ties. SFWMD did not call for 45 percent
reduction to agricultural users until this
month, well after the Caloosahatchee
had suffered irrefutable harm and loss
of all remaining fresh water grasses.
It is unacceptable for the SFWMD to
unilaterally cut off the Caloosahatchee
when other users are not required to
institute meaningful water conservation
measures.
The Caloosahatchee continues to suf-
fer at the hands of policy decisions by
the SFWMD. The Caloosahatchee estu-
ary is suffering at a shockingly regular
and continual rate. Providing minimum
flow to the Caloosahatchee during the
dry season would amount to about five
inches from Lake Okeechobee. In con-
trast, water supply users are provided
more than two feet of lake water during
this time.
The Caloosahatchee is in its fourth
consecutive year of not receiving mini-
mum fresh water flow and level (MFL).
The continual failure to meet the MFL
for the Caloosahatchee has resulted in
significant harm to the health, productiv-
ity and function of the Caloosahatchee
and coastal estuaries.
Our hope for economic recovery is
predicated on a healthy environment.
Gov. Scott and our congressio-
nal and state delegations need to be
held accountable in working with the
SFWMD to protect the public interest
and our waterways.^

A Midsummer Night's Sing

Planned To Benefit The CCMI Soup

Kitchen; Food Need Called 'Critical"
People can help feed the hungry and give hope to the needy while enjoying
an evening of music and fellowship at the 14th Annual A Midsummer Night's
Sing, presented by First Presbyterian Church of Fort Myers and sponsored by
the Galloway Family of Dealerships.
The event, planned for Tuesday, July 26, at First Presbyterian Church in down-
town Fort Myers, will be a 90-minute performance of hymns, instrumentalists, and
special guests beginning at 7 p.m., with doors opening at 6:30 p.m.
Admission is free, although voluntary cash donations and cans of non-perishable
food will be accepted to benefit The Soup Kitchen of Community Cooperative
Ministries (CCMI).
First Presbyterian's pastor, Rev. Paul deJong, is urging the community to help
with canned goods and cash donations to help those in need.
"Ladies and gentlemen, we desperately need your help. The need for food con-
tinues to be absolutely critical. Please love your fellow neighbor and attempt to do
what God would do and want you to do," Rev. deJong said.
Organizer Sam Galloway, Jr. said cash donations are especially needed because
The Soup Kitchen can buy five times as much food for the same amount of money
that residents spend at local grocery stores.
"We can take every dollar and make it stretch as far as is humanly possible," he
said.
Galloway, who has made feeding the hungry part of his life's work, has arranged
for refrigerated trucks to take the food to the neighborhoods that most need help
this summer.
"High unemployment and our poor economy have caused many of our neigh-
bors to ask for food to feed their families for the first time in their lives. Our direc-
tor has told me, 'Sam, I cannot tell you who, but people are coming for groceries
whom you and I know.' We can't allow our neighbors and friends to be hungry.
Please - we need our community to get together and help with all the canned
goods they can. We need to raise the roof with money and food, please!" Galloway
said.
Galloway annually sponsors Mrs. Edison's Hymn Sing as part of the Edison
Festival of Light in February. Because more than 4,000 people attend Mrs. Edison's
Hymn Sing in the winter, organizers planned A Midsummer Night's Sing to allow

The First Presbyterian Chancel Choir and friends will be featured during the eve-
ning, which will include sing-a-longs of well-known hymns.
"Please try to bring whatever cash donation you can and at least two cans of
non-perishable food And, if you're among those impacted by our poor economy,
come anyway and have a good time," Galloway said.
A Midsummer Night's Sing is the second of three hymn sings sponsored annually
by the Galloway Family of Dealerships. The other two are Mrs. Edison's Hymn Sing
in February and the Holiday Carol Sing in December. All three events benefit The
Soup Kitchen of CCMI, which was started by First Presbyterian Church in 1984 to
help alleviate hunger and suffering in Lee County.

I OBITUARY


WINFIELD WAYNE "WHIT" WHITE
W infield Wayne "Whit" White of
Fort Myers, formerly of Sanibel
and Cincinnati, died peace-
fully at Shell Point Hospice House on
June 26, 2011. Born on September
5, 1923, in Wilmington, Delaware, he
was the son of George A. White and
Edith Violet Egelhof. After serving in
the signal corps attached to the Army
Air Corps assigned to the B29 base in


India during World War II, he attended
Purdue University where he received a
BS degree in psychology.
He was a businessman who spe-
cialized in selling cash registers in the
Cincinnati area. He was known for
being the kind of salesperson who would
thoroughly learn about his customer's
business so that he could help them
operate more efficiently and effectively.
He was also known for being a caring
boss. After selling his business in 1980,
he retired briefly but then went back to
consulting for an electronic cash register
company that needed his knowledge
of the Cincinnati market. At that time,
he was known as "Mr. Cash Register"
in southwestern Ohio. In 1982, he
retired again and began to spend more
and more time at his home on Sanibel
Island.
He is survived by his loving wife
of 64 years, Harriet Joy, and by four
children, Carolyn (Douglas) Johnson
of West Bend, Wisconsin; Robert
White (Debra Dunek) of Cedar Rapids,
Iowa; Barbara Joy (Thomas) Cooley of
Sanibel; and William (Cindy) White of
Dade City, Florida; and seven grandchil-
dren. He is also survived by his brother,
James (Muriel) White of Fort Myers.
Whit was a devoted, gentle and won-
derful father. On Sanibel, he was an
active Stephen Minister for the Sanibel
Community Church for almost 10 years.
He also volunteered at HealthPark


THE RIVER - JULY 1,2011 11
and at the Computer Lab and Pavilion
at Shell Point. He was a member of
St. Paul's United Methodist Church
in Madeira, Ohio, then the Sanibel
Community Church, and Faith United
Methodist Church in Fort Myers. In
all three churches, he was a strong
supporter of and participant in small
groups.
He loved watching football and wild-
life, bicycling, and learning about com-
puters. He and Joy spent many delight-
ful summers in Wisconsin, and they
enjoyed a number of summers traveling
in motorhomes, achieving a goal of
visiting all 50 states. They also traveled
internationally. He worked part-time
for a while during retirement at Bailey's
Hardware store, because he always liked
to help people solve problems and fix
things.
Whit loved people - all people - and
he loved God.
Family members would like to thank
the caregivers from Hope Hospice.
They have been a great source of com-
fort and support to Whit and Joy and
their family over the past month.
A memorial service will be held in
Shell Point's Village Church chapel on
July 14, at 1:15 p.m. Memorial contri-
butions may be made to Hope Hospice,
9470 HealthPark Circle, Fort Myers, FL
33908.,

12 THE RIVER - JULY 1,2011
Afternoon
Rains Fire
Fishing Back Up
by Capt.
__ Matt Mitchell
/ T ith the
i " llIl summer-
V time pat-
tern of afternoon
-4 rains slowly starting
Sto kick in, fish-
ing began to pick
up last week. The
much-needed rains
started to reoxy-
genate our waters and had fish feeding
again like they have not done in weeks.
The most productive areas for good
action seemed to be anywhere in and or
around the passes. If you could hit the
pass on the right tide there were good
numbers of some real quality fish to be
caught.
Switching gears from tarpon fishing,
which has been tough to say the least, it
was great to have the rods bent and find
some easy fast action on quality redfish
and snook for a change.


Though I have not written tarpon
fishing off for the year, I don't have any
more tarpon trips scheduled and will not
suggest it to my clients unless things really
turn around. The rains could and should
make things better out there for tarpon
fishing but I'm not counting on it.
While fishing a morning outgoing tide
at Redfish Pass, I got my clients on one
of the most wide open pass bites I can
remember for a long time. Every drift
we either caught an over-the-slot sized
redfish, a snook or hooked into a freight
train we simply could not turn. With even
a few double hook-ups, the bite kept
up for roughly two hours until the tide
slowed. Then as quickly as it had started,
the action was over.
The bait of choice was a live pinfish
dragged against the bottom through the
pass while drifting. My basic pass rig is
easy enough: 15- to 20-pound spinning
tackle rigged with two to three feet of
30- to 40-pound fluorocarbon leader, a
2/0 hook and a large splitshot to keep
the bait bouncing the bottom. I like to
place my split shot up high on the leader
roughly 12 to 18 inches up above the
bait. If you don't feel the bait bouncing
off the bottom while you're drifting, add
another split shot. It's a very simple rig
with the key being your bait has to move


at the same speed as
the tide against the bot-
tom during the drift for
a very natural presenta-
tion.
When you get in
the pass, start off by
making a few drifts of
the entire run of the
pass. Try both sides at
different depths until
you locate where the
bite is. Once you nar-
row down where the
fish are located you can
often make that same
drift over the same ".
spot, basically nailing
fish every drift once you
have it dialed in. It may
take some time to work
out where the fish are
holding in the pass on
what tide but once you
have this method down
it can be used in all our .
local passes to get in on
the action all summer
long.
The passes act like a
funnel as huge amounts
of water move though
a narrow cut, increas-
ing the speed of the
tide. This fast moving Jon Majewski
water pushes lots of bait in caught at Rec
and out on the tides, often
disorienting it and making it an easy meal
for staged-up gamefish. Add to that deep-
er cooler water in the passes than the
rest of the bay right now and you have a
great set-up to catch some quality fish.

CROW Case Of The Week:
Least Tern
by Emilie Alfino
A least tern came into the CROW clinic from Lover's Key
State Park, where there is a nesting area on the beach.
There are a couple of places around Lee County where
least terns nest, including Fort Myers Beach and possibly
Sanibel, according to Dr. Amber MacNamara.
The woman who found her was a park ranger. She'd been
S'o out doing rounds and saw this nesting area below the wrack
line all by itself. The ranger continued her rounds and when she
came back to the nest, the bird was still there. She approached
her and the bird tried to fly but couldn't, managing only a couple
of feet.
The ranger then arranged for transport of the least tern to CROW and the tiny bird
arrived at the clinic June 9. She weighed 36.8 grams, which is not very much. "When
people picture terns, they picture a royal tern with the orange beak," Dr. Amber said.
"These least terns are about the size of a sanderling, but they are terns."
Upon examination, she did not have any fractures, which was good, and really no
wounds to speak of - she was just dehydrated and kind of weak in general, Dr. Amber
said.
"We gave her some fluids
both under the skin and orally
with Chinese herb we use a lot
for patients who are weak, to "
boost their energy and appetite -
and help build muscle," Dr. I
Amber said. The herb is called
Four Gentlemen. The bird was
also given vitamins B and C,
and that was all for the first
day.
There was good news that
first day: she ate two fish! "We
had to dig through every pack-
age of fish and pull out the
tiniest ones because most of
Least tern on the left

the fish were as big as she
was," Dr. Amber said.
The little tern started eat-
ing more and more (fresh
fish four times a day!) and
got up to 39.3 grams by
June 19. "I wasn't sure she
would be very likely to eat,
so I was really happy when
she did," Dr Amber said. ..
"We were keeping her in
the incubator for the first
five days.
On the fifth day, she was :. ..
moved out to a cage and
staff continued to feed her :
once a day. "We put her ...
in a bathtub every morning :
with salt water so she could Least tern
bathe if she wanted to and
gave her a heat lamp to dry off," Dr. Amber said.
At this point, the little bird was still active and getting stronger, but not flying. Dr.
Amber was waiting for her to give some kind of clue or signal that she was ready.
Then about a week later, the clinic took in a fledgling least tern with some injuries
to her leg, and having the two birds together - same-species company - was good for
both of them.
"Terns are kind of tricky when it comes to test flying," Dr. Amber explained. "They
need that big, open space of the beach and the gulf to take off. Many times they can't
or don't want to. It's hard to tell when they're ready to fly."
On June 23, this healed least tern took off, flew around the clinic, and looked
amazing.
"We started making arrangements to get her back to Lovers Key, where we hope
she lives today," Dr. Amber concluded. "We don't know what caused her initial weak-
ness but she came through it and was better at the other side."

Jacaranda
by Gerri Reaves
O ne of the many lovely
sights that snowbirds
miss when they leave
the area is the jacaranda tree
(Jacaranda mimosifolia) in
full bloom, some compensa-
tion for those who endure
the arrival of summer in the
subtropics.
This large flowering
tree native is native to the
Amazon River Basin in
Brazil, Argentina and Peru.
A member of the begonia
family, it loses its leaves in
winter, but in early spring,
it produces the bell-shaped
violet-blue flowers.
Flowers measure about
11/2 inches across and grow
in pyramid-shaped clusters
on the branch ends. These W
clusters of vivid flowers,
called panicles, can be more Jacaranda's fruit splits open to release winged seeds
than a foot long. photos by Gerri Reaves
They, along with the fine
feathery foliage, make jacaranda a popular ornamental that provides light shade.
The fine-textured leaves are comprised of tiny leaflets about one-fourth of an
inch long. Leaves are once- or twice-divided with as many as two dozen pairs of
hairy leaflets.
The distinctive fruit is a woody circular pod about two inches across that splits
open and releases winged seeds.
Jacaranda needs lots of room in the landscape. It can grow as tall as 60 feet,
forming an asymmetrically branching canopy up to 50 feet wide.

It prefers full sun for maximum flowering and moist but well-drained soil. It is
somewhat drought-tolerant but will not thrive in open windy conditions. It will not
tolerate salt, so is unsuitable for coastal landscapes.

Fordham stated.
"Short term, we need

cation of water to the
Caloosahatchee River J
from the South Florida
Water Management District
(SFWMD.)" A team from The Conservancy of South-west Florida per-
"Long term," Fordham forms a water quality test.
continued, "the state and
the federal government need to work together to provide adequate water storage to
supply the needs of businesses, people and nature. Water storage to accommodate
Southwest Florida's growing needs is critical. That's why the U.S. Sugar land purchase
makes so much sense."
Jennifer Hecker, Conservancy of Southwest Florida director of natural resources
policy, stated, "The Caloosahatchee issue involves both the quantity of water and the
quality of water from Lake Okeechobee discharges. While draining one inch of water
from the lake could temporarily improve the current river conditions, polluted water
flows can create other problems."
Hecker continued, "The problems of the Caloosahatchee River can be solved if
federal, state, and local regulators work together to obtain more surface storage, treat
more water, and time releases to mimic natural water flows."
Hecker went on to urge the public to work with decision-makers to ensure fertil-
izer ordinances are adopted to limit the amount of fertilizer, poorly treated sewage and
animal waste running off into our area waters. Hecker also encouraged support for
the numeric nutrient standards to help alleviate nitrogen and phosphorus pollution that
contributes to toxic algal blooms, threaten public health and injure the lifeblood of our
local economy - tourism.
Back in 2006, American Rivers, the Caloosahatchee River Citizens Association,
Caloosahatchee River Watch, Conservancy of Southwest Florida and other local envi-
ronmental groups successfully lobbied to have the Caloosahatchee designated as an
endangered river.
The group, including Tamara Pigott, executive director, Lee County Visitor &
Convention Bureau; Ralf Brookes, environmental attorney and local angler; Frank
Mann, Lee County Commissioner; Mick Denham, vice mayor, City of Sanibel,
expressed concern that a proactive water quality plan to reduce pollution targets aimed
at the source of the pollution was never put in place, five year later.
The speakers agreed that enforcing flow standards, developing stricter fertilizer ordi-

Fertilize Smart
In Wet Season
With the South Florida rainy sea-
son just around the corner, the
Lee County Division of Natural
Resources reminds everyone that fertilizer
use rules change at the traditional start of
the wet season, June 1.
Of particular concern to most resi-
dents is the prohibition of the applica-
tion of phosphorus and nitrogen during
the wet season. To ensure the quality
of coastal waters critical to our environ-
ment, economy, and recreation and to
protect from excessive nutrients that can
cause harmful algal blooms, no fertilizers
containing phosphorous and nitrogen can
be applied during the period of June 1 to
September 30. Potassium and other soil
amendments may be applied during the
wet season.
During the rest of the year, fertilizer
containing phosphorus and nitrogen is


limited. Fertilizer use is also prohibited
within 10 feet of a water body, seawall,
or wetland. And, if you use a fertilizer
spreader, you are required to have a
deflector shield to prevent nutrient spread
into water body buffers and impervious
surfaces. The application of nitrogen
must be labeled as at least 50 percent
slow-release.
Landscape maintenance professionals
are also subject to the ordinance,, which
requires the registration and training of
both professional landscapers and institu-
tional landscapers, and sets best-manage-
ment landscape and fertilizer practices.
These precise limits are designed to
get homeowners, association members
and landscape professionals to think of
the connection between fertilizing prac-
tices and the quality of our area waters.
Fertilize as little as possible and only
when and where needed.

County fertilizer ordinance, visit www.

Cub Scouts Learn About
Birding At Tarpon Bay


Cub Scouts and their parents surround Naturalist Donna Yetsko in their kayaks as they
learn about the ecosystem in the refuge at Tarpon Bay
Once on the water, Yetsko taught the group about the mangrove estuary ecosystem
in the refuge and helped the scouts learn to identify different species of birds. The
lucky paddlers saw a good variety of birds including a green heron, great egret,
snowy egret and even a swallow tail kite. They were also pretty excited to see little
mangrove tree crabs on the trees and a mangrove snake in the water! Scout leader
Joe Hobson said that he even learned new things about our local ecosystem and he
has been out on the water here for 20 years. Hobson said, "Everyone really truly
had a great time and we will probably come back every year."O

independence Day is upon us,
and while most people associate
barbeques and fireworks with the
holiday, for SCCF's (Sanibel-Captiva
Conservation Foundation) sea turtle


monitoring program, it also marks the
beginning of sea turtle hatching season.
July is the busiest month for sea turtles
on Sanibel and Captiva. Adult females
are still coming ashore to nest and the
nests that have been incubating for the
last two months begin to hatch. This
makes the beach a busy place at night.
If you visit the beach, especially at
night, please keep a few things in mind
to keep our beaches sea turtle friendly:
* Remove all beach furniture, tents
and toys
* Fill in all holes that you dig
* Turn off or shield all lights facing the
beach
* Avoid using a flashlight
* Never take flash photographs
* Honor the leash law
* Respect all marked sea turtle nests
If you happen to see a sea turtle, keep
a respectful distance (at least 150 feet)
and watch quietly. It is a rare experience
and one to be treasured. You can learn
more about the sea turtles that nest on
the beaches at SCCF's Turtle Tracks pro-
gram on July 14 and 28 at 10 a.m. Call
472-2329 for more information.


Seashell Trivia
by Bryan Henry
Horns made from conch and triton shells have been used to signal over long
distances by civilizations worldwide.
* Sundial shells, found in Florida, are also known as architect shells.
* The Sphinx and other great pyramids of Egypt are all built from sandstone,
which contains the fossilized shells of billions of minute marine creatures known as
nummulites.
* Native Americans used the conch shell to make tools and pottery, and also as
a horn by cutting off the tip of the shell and blowing through it.
* Fourteen states have an officially designated state seashell. The horse conch is
the state shell of Florida.
* The lettered olive is the state shell of South Carolina.
* The state shell of Oregon, the Oregon hairy triton, is the only shell that shares
the name of a state, and one of only three in the world named after a location.
* The Dutch made wampum (clam shells) legal currency when they governed
New Amsterdam (New York) in the 1600s.
Shellabration 2012 will mark the 75th annual Sanibel Shell Fair and Show.
Plans are under way for an island-wide celebration February 26 through

Shell Museum

Seeks Volunteers
Are you looking for a reward-
ing way to donate a few hours
of your time? Do you have a
love for people and shells? If so, The
Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum would
be a great place to spend some quality
moments with other shell lovers.
Volunteer opportunities can be cus-
tomized to suit your skills, interests and
schedule, so you don't have to be a shell
expert to help at the shell museum. If
you know something about shells, there
are things to do with the public or behind
the scenes. If not, perhaps you and other
volunteers can chat about your summer
plans while you prepare membership
mailings. All volunteers are provided with
on-site training and orientation, a muse-
um membership, and store and event
discounts. Volunteers living off-island will
receive Sanibel Causeway toll reimburse-
ments.
"There are so many places that volun-
teers can make a difference," said Diane
Thomas, public program specialist for
the museum. "Their talents allow us to
inform and educate visitors and ensure
that they get the most out of their visit to
the museum."
Exhibit hall docent Patricia Williams of
Fort Myers signed on as a volunteer four
years ago. "It's a really interesting job,"
she said. "There's certainly a lot more to
shells than one would imagine. I think I
learn something new every time I come.
It's just a really fun, interesting way to
spend a few hours."

10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Bonita Springs
Community Pool, 26890 Pine Avenue.
Learn ways to help your family stay
safe while having fun in and around the
swimming pool.
"In the state of Florida, we lose
the equivalent of three classrooms of
preschoolers to drowning each year",
said Michele King, director of the Child
Advocacy Program at The Children's
Hospital. "We must keep our children
safe with layers of protection and con-
stant adult supervision when they are in
or near water."
Drowning is the leading cause of death
for children under age five in the state of
Florida and is 100 percent preventable.
Just follow the safety tips below:
* Never leave a child unattended in a
pool or spa and always watch your child
when he or she is in or near water.
* Teach children basic water safety
tips.
* Keep children away from pool
drains, pipes and other openings to avoid
entrapments.

First Aid Ointment

From Calendula
by Suzy Cohen, RPh

Pharmacist:
D aIt seems
my kids spend the
summer getting
bumped and bruised.
Can you recom-
mend a natural rem-
edy to treat all those
boo-boos?
PE, Clackamus,
Oregon
Yes, I have just the thing. Not too
long ago, a friend of mine took a nasty
spill while riding her bicycle. She shared
the details of what happened with me,
and today, I will share her story with
you. My friend's next-door neighbor
asked politely how she was doing after
the minor accident, and she confessed
to her neighbor that everything hurt.
"I have just the thing," the neighbor
responded and ducked inside her house,
emerging a moment later with a jar of
calendula cream. Calendula (Calendula
officinalis) is an herb that has been used
safely all over the world for centuries,
specifically for wound healing.
My friend decided to give her neigh-
bor's cream a try, since she trusted the
source. She trusted her because the lady
had raised five teenagers who played
every sport from soccer to volleyball. If
this stuff came with the soccer mom's


seal of approval, it had to be effective.
As my friend relayed her story to me,
I became excited to write about it too,
since there are no prescription drugs or
salves that do all that calendula can. My
friend dabbed the cream on her bruises
and scrapes, took a nap and woke up
significantly better. Within days, she was
as good as new.
This inspired me to research calen-
dula. I wish I knew about it when my
children were young. A few European
studies have concluded calendula to
help soothe wounds and improve heal-
ing. It has antifungal, antiviral, and even
anti-tumor properties! I think calendula
would be fantastic for cradle cap and
diaper rashes, or any rash for that mat-
ter. You can use it on minor burns,
sunburn, bedsores, eczema and poison
ivy. A small study proved it can ease
the pain of radiation-induced dermati-
tis. Calendula may improve acne too.
Health food stores and online retailers
sell calendula in cream, lotions, oint-
ments or tinctures. You'll see various
brands and companies selling it, a
few of which include Boiron, Weleda,
California Baby and Hyland's.
If you are creating a first-aid cabinet,
I highly recommend you include calen-
dula. Put it next to your hydrocortisone
and tea tree oil. Calendula is so safe you
can literally eat the beautiful yellow flow-
ers from which the cream is made, so
long as you're not allergic to flowers in
the daisy or marigold family. Calendula
extract imparts a beautiful yellow color,
so it's used as a natural coloring agent
in cuisines around the world. Lately, I've
been buying the fresh (and edible ver-


sion) of flowers from my natural grocer
to garnish salads and soups. It makes
for a delicious conversation piece at my
dinner table.

Folate found in green leafy veggies
(and supplements) was just shown to
reduce colon cancer risk.

Whiplash Wiles
by Dr. Dave
Hepburn
rue story here
i (and these
are rare).
I'd coaxed ol'
Ichiro, my Toyota
Rustbucket, to a
law abiding stop




the wilds of downtown traffic, I suddenly
felt an explosion in Ichiro's backside and
I was instantly and violently launched
onto Main Street somewhat sooner
than originally planned. I had been rear-
ended, but not by an Escort (the car) or
a Toyota Tin Can or a 92-year-old com-
missionnaire on a moped, but rather by
an armored truck! No guff.
Stunned, more than usual, I got out
of my car to survey the remains of my
rear end when two guards got out of the
Brinks, with guns. "Hey listen," I urgently
urged, "If you keep those guns holstered,
I'll say it was my fault. Heck, I'll say I was
drunk."
Now, though a Sherman tank had
tried to mate with my Toyota, I honestly
wasn't upset as these fender benders are
seldom intentional, hockey parking lots
excluded. And though I wasn't hurt

Mom And Me


by Lizzie and Pryce
Sizzle and Pryce answer your ques-
tions and give advice about aging
concerns from a two-generational
perspective. A mother and daughter
team, Lizzie is a retired RN and health
educator, and Pryce is a licensed psy-
chotherapist in private practice who
specializes in the care of elders and
people with chronic illnesses.
Dear Mom & Me,
I am a single woman - a retired career
educator. My career was foremost so
I never married, but I now realize how
much I have missed.
After I retired I was thrilled to be able
to stay in my home and enjoy the many
pleasures. But I now realize that this can-
not go on too much longer and I must
make a change, as I am completely on
my own with no family.
I have interviewed many complexes


and have one very basic problem. I am
terrified that I will not have the financial
resources to see me to the end, and then
I will be out on the street. What do I do
then?
Ada
Dear Ada,
In today's economy, many singles
and married people are having the same
problem as you. Nobody knows for sure
what is ahead.
I would suggest that you get all of the
information you can about your financial
position and seek the counsel of an expe-
rienced, older financial advisor; maybe
she/he will have the answer for you.
So far as what you have "missed,"
many married women envy you. They
would have loved having a career and all
of the glamour in your life rather than a
life of domesticity.
Lizzie
Dear Ada,
What's to regret? What did you miss?
You made a life for yourself as a single
professional. You can make a life for
yourself as a retired single professional.
Being married is not a requirement
to participate in social activities and net-
working. Many single women (divorced
or widowed) are enjoying rich social lives.
The key is you need to take an active
role in creating your social connections
through church, senior centers, local
parks and recreation programming.

Lee Memorial To

Purchase Mental

Health Provider
ee Memorial Health System has
announced it is purchasing the
assets of Jennings Behavioral
Health System (JBH), a local mental
health provider that offers outpatient
services for individuals, families and
groups.
The purchase ensures a continuity
of care for individuals in need of men-
tal health services, according to Lee
Memorial. The services currently offered
at JBH, which include partial hospital-
ization, medication management, and
intensive outpatient therapy, will remain
the same and all of the current staff
are being asked to stay on. The name
will change to The Behavioral Health
Center when the agreement goes into
effect July 1.
"We were immediately interested
when we were approached to acquire
JBH," said Lisa Sgarlata, chief admin-
istrative officer for Lee Memorial
Hospital. "We have had a close work-
ing relationship with them through
their partial hospitalization program for
a number of years, and consider the
services they provide to the community
essential." Sgarlata will assume adminis-
trative responsibility over operations at
the Behavioral Health Center.
The cost of the acquisition is


$250,000 and Lee Memorial Health
System will assume the lease on JBH's
office space located at 12550 New
Brittany Boulevard in Fort Myers. The
Lee Memorial Health System board of
directors approved the lease assumption
at its board meeting on June 23.
The system has had a contract for
several years to provide placement of
inpatient and emergency room patients
to JBH's outpatient mental health ser-
vices. "This is an example of providing
the right care in the right setting for
our behavioral health patients," said
Sgarlata. "It provides a benefit to the
community by continuing a needed
service, and it frees up hospital beds by
placing the patients into an appropriate,
and less costly, care setting."O

Local Key Clubs

Shine In Orlando
The success achieved by the 13 Key
Clubs in Lee County and LaBelle
during the 2010-11 year was
apparent at the recent statewide con-
vention in Orlando. Two local clubs -
Cape Coral High and East Lee County
High - were honored with the Diamond
Level Distinguished Club Award, which
recognizes clubs with outstanding ser-
vice, leadership, and commitment to
Key Club initiatives. Only seven of
these awards were given out statewide.
Overall, the 13 local Key Clubs were
awarded Most Outstanding Division in
Florida.
Key Club Division 19 Lt. Gov. Sara
Qureshi also stood out among her
peers at the 73rd Annual Key Club
Florida District Convention with the
Distinguished Lieutenant Governor
Award. Qureshi will also be recog-
nized at the Key Club International
Convention in Phoenix, Arizona,
with the Robert F. Lucas Outstanding
Lieutenant Governor Award later this

Professionals who wish to use their
talents for community involvement often
face challenges, such as determining
which organizations to lend their time
to, as well as time management. East

comes to volunteering and joining non-
profit boards.
The FPRA March meeting will
be held on Tuesday, July 12 at the

in a variety of positions in the banking,
specialty steel, nonprofit, and education-
al fields. She holds a doctor of manage-
ment in organizational leadership and
is a certified fundraising executive. East
has also written numerous articles and
has given a multitude of presentations
about the nonprofit sector, philanthropy,
and organizational best practices.
In addition to her daily work with the
Community Foundation, East develops
curriculum and teaches leadership, man-
agement, and organizational develop-
ment at the master and doctoral levels,
including two onsite courses in Vietnam.
The cost to attend the July 12 lun-

Grossman will continue his two-year
term for the next year.
The board members are as follows:

presidents of education; Jed Klein,


you're expressing is consistent with the
injury. We also have methods to deter-
mine exaggeration, which again, I could
tell you about, but I won't.
But what I can reveal is that the
truly objective findings such as palpable
inflammation is something we can
detect over the injured areas and not in
uninjured areas. Muscle spasm, range of
motion and fixation of the joints cannot
be effectively faked. In fact, there was
a study done in which a set of doctors
treated patients including real whiplash
victims and "ringers" who were not
injured but trying to fake a whiplash. In
not a single case were any of the doc-
tors fooled.
Another unusual study found that
rodeo riders who suffered whiplash in
a car accident actually got better and
returned to work twice as fast as non-
bronc busters. And "returning-to-work"
isn't exactly riding a steno chair or light
duties on a Brahma bull. Is this because
they are better athletes to start with or
because they are just tougher or because
of both? Well undoubtedly, if we are
already a flimsy weak-necked Ichabodish
Crane type we might take a lot longer
to get better. So when you are doing
your regular resistance workouts, don't
forget your neck.
Personally, I felt like I was getting
better but my lawyer thought he noted
that I had more blackheads than before

retary; Jodi Gutstein, corresponding sec-
retary. Members-at-large include Chely
Dosoretz, Robert Schlager, George
and Joyce Rosinger, Joan Thomson,
Lynn Talone, Lisa Bendetowicz. Joanne
Goldman is preschool representative.
The new board of trustees looks to
maintain a strong ritual presence and
religious education within the standards
of Conservative Judaism at Temple
Judea.
Keith Grossman and his family have
served as active members of the syna-
gogue for over 15 years. Prior to his
current role as president, he served
as a member of the board of trustees,
took an active role with Temple Judea's
religious and pre-schools, and helped
to create the Junior Congregation,
which focuses on the needs of children
between the ages of seven and 12. He
also led and facilitated a focus group
process at Temple Judea in an effort to
bring about positive ideas for change
and growth.
Temple Judea is an egalitarian
Conservative Synagogue of approxi-
mately 200 households, proudly
affiliated with the United Synagogue of
Conservative Judaism. The congregation
is considered a "family of families." In
addition to prayer services, they provide
for the educational needs of the com-
munity with a preschool and after-hours
religious school. It is Lee County's only
Conservative Synagogue. Temple Judea
is located at 14486 A&W Bulb Road,

My Stars ***
FOR WEEK OF JULY 4, 2011
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You
clever Ewes and Rams love nothing more
than to rise to a challenge. So, by all
means, if you feel sure about your facts,
step right up and defend your side of the
issue.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20)
You've done some great work recently.
Now it's time to reward yourself with
something wonderful, perhaps a day at
a spa or a night out with someone very
special.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You
love to talk, but don't forget to make
time to do a little more listening; other-
wise, you could miss out on an important
message someone might be trying to send
to you.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your
aspect indicates some uncertainty about
one of your goals. Use this period of
shifting attitudes to reassess what you
really want and what you're ready to do
to get it.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) Your
social life is picking up, and you'll soon
be mingling with old friends and making
new ones. But twixtt the fun times, stay
on top of changing workplace conditions.
VIRGO (August 23 September 22) A
trusted friend offers understanding as you
vent some long-pent-up feelings. Now,
move on from there and start making the
changes you've put off all this time.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22)
You might well feel uneasy as you face
a difficult situation involving someone
close to you. But you know you're doing
the right thing, so stick with your deci-
sion.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November
21) You're a good friend to others.
Now's the time to allow them to be good
friends to you. Rely on their trusted
advice to help you get through an uncer-
tain period.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to
December 21) Family and friends are
always important, but especially so at
this time. Despite your hectic workplace


schedule, make a real effort to include
them in your life.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to
January 19) That project you've been
working on is almost ready for presenta-
tion. But you still need some information
from a colleague before you can consider
it done.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February
18) Don't let those negative attitudes
that have sprung up around you drain
your energies. Shrug them off, and move
ahead with the confidence that you can
get the job done.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20)
Aspects favor some dedicated fun time
for the hardworking Piscean. A nice,
refreshing plunge into the social swim
can recharge your physical and emotional
batteries.
BORN THIS WEEK: You love to
travel and be with people. You probably
would be happy as a social director on a
cruise ship.


* On July 8, 1776, a 2,000-pound
copper-and-tin bell now known as the
"Liberty Bell" rings out from the tower
of the Pennsylvania State House (now
Independence Hall) in Philadelphia, sum-
moning citizens to the first public reading
of the Declaration of Independence. As
the British advanced toward Philadelphia
in the fall of 1777, the bell was removed
from the city and hidden in Allentown to
save it from being melted down by the
British and used to make cannons.
* On July 4, 1826, the 50th anniversary
of the adoption of the Declaration of
Independence, John Adams and Thomas
Jefferson, the second and third presidents
of the United States, respectively, die.
Both men had been central in the drafting
of the historic document.
* On July 5, 1865, in London, revival-
ist preacher William Booth and his wife
Catherine establish the Christian Mission,
later known as the Salvation Army, to
wage war against the evils of poverty and
religious indifference.
* On July 7, 1930, construction of the
Hoover Dam begins. Over the next five
years, a total of 21,000 men would pro-


duce what would be the largest dam of its
time. Today, the Hoover Dam generates
enough energy each year to serve more
than a million people.
* On July 9, 1947, in a ceremony held
at the Pentagon in Arlington, Va., Gen.
Dwight D. Eisenhower appoints Florence
Blanchfield to be a lieutenant colonel
in the U.S. Army, making her the first
woman in U.S. history to hold permanent
military rank. Blanchfield had served as
superintendent of the Army Nurse Corps
during World War II.
* On July 6, 1957, Liverpool teenagers
John Lennon and Paul McCartney meet
for the first time. Lennon was a member
of the Quarry Men, scheduled to play at
a public event. Two weeks later, Lennon
invited McCartney to join the Quarry
Men.


* It was 19th-century German philoso-
pher Arthur Schopenhauer who made the
following sage observation: "There is no
absurdity so palpable but that it may be
firmly planted in the human head if you
only begin to inculcate it before the age
of five, by constantly repeating it with an
air of great solemnity."
* Those who study such things say that
half of all money spent on food in the
United States is spent in restaurants.
* You might be surprised to learn that
beer brewers in Australia are on the cut-
ting edge of alternative energy produc-
tion. They have created a "beer battery"
-- the world's first, they claim -- in which
electricity is generated by bacteria con-
suming the waste that is created by the
brewing process.
* If you're looking to brighten up your
living space with some greenery, you
might want to consider getting a bonsai
tree. They live longer than any other
houseplant.



"Hollywood is a place where they'll
pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss
and fifty cents for your soul." -- Marilyn
Monroe
