Friday 2002, he Marianne and the late John Kanzius
as patient, she as
care giver. But during that time of indescribable personal adversity Kanzius devel-
oped a potential treatment for cancer. The seed of his invention was planted when
he saw the pain of children suffering the same side effects of cancer treatments that
he himself was enduring.
Kanzius' dream was to see the first child treated with his invention. It was his single
focus all during his own struggle with the disease. He didn't live to see his dream come
true but Marianne, his wife of 45 years and mother of two children, is determined that
his dream will be fulfilled. Upon his death last year she took up the mantle of leader-
ship of the project, immersing herself in the myriad details of the various research

FISH of Sanibel
We are about halfway through our
annual FISH (Friends In Service
Here) of Sanibel community
fund drive, and while we've had a gener-
ous response from many this year we
are falling short of our financial goal of
$42,000 to keep our full range of FISH
services going. FISH relies heavily on
the support of the community to meet
its financial needs and unfortunately
with the current economic environment
the needs of some of our island neigh-
bors are greater than ever. Demand for
HISH series hasvr eb dso gan
stocked and being able to provide emer-
gency financial assistance is the top pri-
ority for FISH in 2010.
There have been some significant suc-
cess stories of island neighbors who have
been given a hand up by FISH this year.
Take Sally, a single mother of two chil-
dren who lives and works on the island.
She has her hours cut back over the
past three months, due to the economic
climate. Until recently, Sally has been
coping with her rent and other domestic
expenses. As a result of the reduction in
her weekly earnings, however, she has
needed assistance with food for herself
and her children. FISH has been able to
help her out by providing food from the
food pantry and our program director has
been able to help her find her some state
benefits that she is entitled to and that
she was not aware of these will help
her on an ongoing basis.
Another example of how FISH helps
out island neighbours is John, an elderly
man who has been a long-term resident
of Sanibel. Because of the recent cold
weather John was unable to pay his elec-
tric bill and was threatened with being
cut off. After careful screening, FISH
stepped in and paid this bill and also
assisted John by getting him a number of
other resource referrals who will help him
on a more long-term basis.
"The economic impact has been felt
by many but now more than ever FISH
really needs your help," said John Plyor,
FISH director of resource development.
"If you have not already done so, we are
asking you to consider making a donation
to FISH. This can be done either by send-
ing back your FISH return envelope or by
sending a donation directly to the Walk-
in-Center, which is now located at 1630
Periwinkle Way, Unit B (next to Pfeifer
Realty Group) and is open Monday
through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
FISH can be contacted at 472 4775."
FISH of Sanibel, Inc. is a non-profit
volunteer organization assisting Sanibel
and Captiva islanders and visitors with a
wide range of services. For more than 28
years FISH has been a "neighbor help-
ing neighbors" organization offering free
human services such as transportation
for medical appointments, meal delivery,
health equipment, food pantry, and emer-
gency financial assistance.M

Learning Sanibel Island's history and sharing it with visitors has been very
rewarding for Gerry Verblaauw.
"Stationed in the Rutland House enables me to be the first to interact with
visitors and to welcome them to the Village," she says.
"The house is an excellent example of the Florida 'cracker style' and is a warm
beginning to the tour of the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village," Verblaauw says.
"It has been fun meeting other docents and the many visitors from the island, their
guests, and others from all over the USA and also Europe.
Like many other full- and part-time residents, she and her husband Rod fell in love
with Sanibel from the moment they crossed the bridge in 1982. She now wishes that
they had known about the island when, in 1959, on their honeymoon, they spent two
weeks touring Florida.
"It would be great, as a docent, when relating the early history of Sanibel, to have
personally taken the ferry here," she says.
Volunteering has always been a priority for Verblaauw. Raising four children in
northern New Jersey gave opportunities to help Brownies, Scouts and to volunteer at
school. Later she became involved with the Valley Hospital Auxiliary where she held

healthy cells and no side-effects. That's
what their research has shown to date in
According to one internationally
known cancer researcher, "it is the most
exciting and promising cancer treatment
developed in the past 50 years."
Kanzuis' resolve is palpable as she
describes the strong faith that sustains
her; a faith that was tested many times
as she struggled to understand how her
husband, who was doing so much to help
people, could be taken.
Kanzius is at ease when talking about
technical aspects of the research and
details of scientific papers in support of
the technology. "I have an advisory com-
mittee which consists of legal, technical,
research and fundraising; all people who
have been involved with the project all
along, she said. "My time is completely
taken up with talking to people and
attending functions in support of the
project but it's all of us together that will
make the difference. It's not only the
patients that feel pain. Anyone connected
with that person feels it as well."
Her desk was piled high with notes,
journals and messages as she sorted
through phone calls from all over the
country. She had morphed from care-
giver to chief executive with a single goal
in mind... the project must be brought
to the conclusion of which her husband
"She is amazing," said Dr. Steve
Curley, chief research scientist for the
project at the M.D. Anderson Cancer
Research Center in Houston. Curley, a
member of Kanzius' advisory committee,
said Kanzius has an excellent grasp of
the science of the project and because of
that the project has not lost focus. "She
understands all facets of the project which
includes the research, fundraising and the
development of the equipment. The proj-
ect is in good hands."
Curley is expecting to issue two papers
to the medical community this month,
one demonstrating a new type of nano-
particle known as a Quantum Dot, a
composite metal (indium and gallium) that
has fluorescent qualities that can be seen
with a laser that will allow treatment at
lower temperatures to eliminate collateral
healthy cell damage; the other paper
illustrates the use of gold nanoparticles
in destroying pancreatic cancer cells.
Nanoparticles are a key to the success of
Curley said financial support from
Sanibel and Captiva has been instmumen-
tal in the rapid progress of the project.
He is anticipating adding two additional
researchers to his staff of 14. "Every
additional person we add reduces the
time to get to human trials," he said.
Marianne Kanzius left no doubt that
her husband's dream lives on through her
but she shies away from taking the credit
for the leap fonvard the project has taken
this past year.
"The advisory committee held me up
during a difficult time and they deserve
the credit. John selected them well," she
said. Spoken like a true chief executive.#

with the loss of her life partner. How did

there was nothing I could do about it. I

p.m., followed by the powerful new film release The
Mysterious Islands. There is no place in the world like the
Galapagos Islands, and this film is a masterpiece in capturing the
splendor and wonder of God's creation.
On this 40th anniversary of Earth Day our reflections will
turn back to the beginning of history. According to the Book of
Genesis, the very first book in the Bible, when God created the
earth he created people to be caretakers of this beautiful planet.
Dr. Dalyl Donovan, senior pastor of Sanibel Community Church,
will be sharing 25 tips to be good caretakers of the earth. This will
be a great family night for all ages, celebrating the gift of the earth.
There is no charge for the meal or film, but a free will offering
will be received to protect Florida wildlife.

when she realized that Beach Stuff Inc.

some overstock aqua socks that could
be used. She checked around and found
many pairs in the "back room" and also g
at the company s other stores.
She asked the owners, the Baugher :

Maguire then gathered them all up socks similar to the ones that were shipped
and researched an organization to give to Haiti

Don Adams, bicycle historian, who
I was the speaker at last Friday's
SRotary Club meeting, moved to
Sanibel in 1999 following 25 years in
Dearborn, Michigan where he was public
affairs officer for the Henly Ford Museum
and Greenfield Village and director of
the Automotive Hall of Fame Museum.
He continues in the museum field with a
museum management consulting practice
that has served 40 museums across the
U.S. and Canada.
His interest in bicycling history began
in 1968, when he saw a 1880s bicycle
for the first time. This man has a true
love for the history of the bicycle, you
can see it in his demeanor when he talks
on the subject. He joyfully presents the
topic with a gleam in his eyes and maybe
always reliving his first time riding a bike.
As Adams said, "The bicycle was the
first self-propelled machine for personal
transportation. It created a mechanical,
social, political and transportation revolu-
tion." Remember this all started in 1816.
Baron Kar vonDrais, chief forester for
the Duke of Baden in Germany, took a
length of wood, attached a saddle and
two small carriage wheels in tandem.
No pedals folks! No brakes! Thrusting
one s feet against the ground in a skating
This was not exactly the prototype for
our modern bike, but it was the begin-
with pedals and cranks on the front axle.
Thus was born the velocipede. Michaux
split from Lallement, moved to Ansonia,
Connecticut, where he and a new partner
James Carol of New Haven registered in
1866 the first patent on a pedal-driven
velocipede. As Adams says, a mere 144
At this time, bicycle riding seemed to
be a pastime for the wealthy sportsmen.
Riding academies were started, one at
Yale University. Harpers magazine regu-
larly printed illustrations of proper veloci-
pede riding style and etiquette. Cities
in Massachusetts, Connecticut and New
York banned the velocipede on public
streets as a nuisance that knocked over
pedestrians and scared horses.
One of the biggest advances in what
we know as the bicycle came in 1870,
when British inventor James Starley
solved the problem of getting more speed
and distance from each pedal revolution
simply by making the driving wheel big-
ger. All bicycles available in America at
this time were imported from Europe,
mainly England. The biggest importer
was the Pope Manufacturing Company of
In 1878 Col. Albert Pope produced
the first American high wheel bicycle
which he called the Columbia. Note that
it had a small brake on the rear wheel,
which was very ineffective. The high
wheel bicycle's inherent danger contin-
ued to be an issue. Bicycle journals had
a monthly column listing those who had
succumbed to death by wheel. Yikes! In
1881, safety problems were addressed
reversing the configuration by putting the
big wheel in the rear making it impossible
to pitch over the front.
This is just the tip of the iceberg
regarding the history of the bicycle.
There really isn t enough column space
to tell the whole story. The story itself is
the journey of the evolution of how the
bicycle contributed to the development of
highways, automobiles, airplanes, mass
production techniques, pneumatic tires,
drum brakes, differential gears as well as
installment buying, annual model chang-
es, warranties, even road signs, maps and
ankle-baring women's garments were the
invention of bicyclists and bicycle mak-
ers. Check out the History Timeline of
the Bicycle at www.pedaling history.com

copy of Adams' book Collecting and
Restoring Antique Bicycles.
The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club

ning. The hobbyhorse, as it was called,
was terribly uncomfortable and the rat-
tling of the iron tires caused somewhat
of a public nuisance. It took another 22
years before any further development
toward the bicycle we know today. In
1839 Scotsman Kirkpatrick MacMillan
discovered that a similar machine could
be balanced without touching feet to the
ground so long as there was forward
motion, in this case by treadles driven bV
connecting rods to the rear wheel.
More time passed without further
development until 1863 in France some-
one brought a broken hobby horse to
Pierre Lallement and Pierre Michaux for
repairs. After more tinkering there came
the idea that you could propel this vehicle

let for his green thumb in his Southwest

in orchid culture and soon his collection

for his collection, he found a dilapidated
greenhouse in 2001, renovated it, and
Sundance Orchids was born. The busi-

Consistent redfishing is finally here
too. Even on the not so high tides,
mangroves from Galt Island to Demiere
Key held lots of slot-sized fish. Live
shrimp remains the bait of choice with
the reds just not feeding too well on
anything else. Soak your live shrimp up
close to the mangroves and if you don't
get one in five to 10 minutes, keep
moving. Once I locate them, I've been
getting three or four out of each spot.
The big redfish of the week on my boat
was 29 inches.
Fishing in the spring you never know
what you will find. While running from
Chino Island to Cork Key earlier this
week I spotted a 40-pound-plus cobia
just laid up on the surface. By the time
I saw it from the tower it was too late
as I watched it spook. Right in the same
general area I spotted frigate birds feed-
ing on the surface as bigger fish crashed
baits. As I approached I quickly realized
it was a school of 20-pound-plus jacks
in a feeding frenzy. I had my anglers
cast out the trout tackle and hold on.
Catching a huge jack like this on light
10-pound spinning gear turned out to
be an epic battle, chasing the fish in the
boat at least two times to recover line
before being stripped.

Depending on the anglers, we used
anything from live shrimp under a pop-
ping cork, live shrimp on a jig head, soft
plastic jigs, spoons and even some plugs.
Talk about a wide open bite. At times
everyone was hooked up. This type of
flats fishing action has been just fast and
furious. Even though a lot of the trout
have been on the smaller side, getting a
limit of keepers in a few hours for a fish
fry has been easy.
I love this type of fishing to introduce
clients to saltwater angling. Taking out
people who have never fished and catch-
ing fish non-stop for the whole trip is
never a bad thing.
Sheepshead fishing is really winding
down now as the water temperature
creeps up. There are still lots around the
sound but they are not close to the size of
the past few weeks. While fishing for big
trout one day this week, Mack Jacobs of
Indiana caught a 21-inch monster sheep-
shead. The fish ate a jumbo shrimp fished

sophisticated wordplay, puns, and literary allusions.

Just Ask Margaret
The cast photo by Michael Lamont
While performing (again, in the "experimental workshop" mode) at a small theater
(99 seats) in LA, the musical caught the attention of the artistic team from the Tony
award-winning Utah Shakespearean Festival. This summer, all summer, from July 1
through the August 28, Margaret's adaptation of Charles Dickens' Great Expectations
will finally premiere as a full-blown production at this theatrical bonanza in beautiful
Cedar City, Utah. Not only are there five other performances going on in this theater
mecca of the west, but there is the added bonus of being very near some of the most
spectacular natural settings in the U.S. including Bryce and Zion canyons.
So friends, you are all invited to Utah
for an amazing experience for your minds,
hearts and souls. You will be reunited with
at least two of the original characters from
the Florida Rep production. Ellen Crawford
has again won the role of eccentric Miss
Havisham and Dave Burrus will again be
playing dear Joe. Please see www.greatex-
pectationsmusical.com for details about
securing tickets. (in ordering the tickets on-
line please put "Expectations" in the code
section). There will be four performances
each week. We have been given the won-
derful Randall L. Jones Theatre, which is a
796-seat venue so there is plenty of room.

Royal Opera's La Boheme
At BIG ARTS via Digiscreen
Company, captured live at the
Royal Opera House Covent
Garden, will be screened at 7:30 p.m. on o'
Thursday, April 22 at BIG ARTS.
BIG ARTS has partnered with
DigiScreen corporation to bring interna-
tional performing arts companies to the big
screen in Schein Performance Hall, 900
Dunlop Road, Sanibel. Admission is $20.
Puccini's opera is one of the most
famously melodious and eternally popular
of all operas. The carefree attitude of youth
and the harsh realities of life are poignantly
contrasted through the tender affair of Mimi
(Russian soprano Hibla Gerzmava) and
Rodolfo (Romanian tenor Teodor Ilincai),
from the heights of first meeting through to
the tragic end.
The production is one of The Royal
?YPe Comp ny's m st lvd, eritnngd
costumes and travels between bare attic, Hibla Gerzmava and Teodor Ilincal in La
crowded cafta and wintery streets. The inter- Boh~me
national cast was under the expert baton of
Andris Nelsons, a conductor especially noted for his interpretations of Puccini. With that
composer's mastery of orchestral color matched to the superb playing of the Orchestra
of the Royal Opera House, La Boh~me is an evening of great sound, engrossing imag-
ery, and stirring romantic drama.
Performed to sold-out audiences at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden in
December 2009, the opera will be presented with subtitles in High Definition Video
and Digital Surround Sound.#

An Astonishing Play At Florida Rep
by Di Saggau
The play Trying, now showing at Florida Repertory Theatre, moves you to
laughter and tears. It deals with fundamental issues and allows the audience
to observe the interaction between cantankerous 82-year-old retired Judge
Francis Biddle and his idealistic new 25-year-old secretary Sarah. As the play pro-
gresses, we learn to love and care for the characters, played so well by David S.
Howard and Rachel Burttram. This is an autobiographical drama by playwright
Joanna McClelland Glass about the year she spent as secretary to Biddle, the for-
mer attorney general under FDR and judge at the Nuremberg Trials.
It's 1967 in Washington, DC. Biddle's cluttered office is located over the garage. He
has trouble walking and sometimes trying to remember what he was about to say. As
he interviews Sarah for the job he says, "we can't help but find each other extremely

Best of all, it's not just an idle dream; it's very definitely on
her To Do list. Talk to her about it and she'll gladly explain. "I
could write a book about it. I'd call it the yard sale philosophy
of life." Best of all, according to her, it doesn t even matter
e-what time you get to a yard sale... early or late won't make a
difference. "No matter what time you get to the yard sale the
thing you were meant to have will be there." But that," she
continued, "is a metaphor for all of life.
She sees herself as a round peg in a square hole and yes, that works "if the hole
i~s bg enough, she s Isb H vin live ueeo ~Srne thoerralmost eght yeas one an
where you're planted."
For the first eight years of her life Wendy lived in Woodstock, New York where
her father was a well-known photographer. When the reality of how difficult it was to
make a living with his art hit home the family moved to Westport, Connecticut. It was
a good place to grow up; there were decent schools, well-stocked libraries, a popula-
tion appreciative of arts and culture and proximity to a multitude of museums.
When it was time for college she headed way west to California. Originally an art
major, but totally lacking in self confidence, she switched to psychology with a minor
in sociology. Well-educated, she came away with no real preparation for professional
employment; that's when the real Wendy kicked in. She's artistic. Look at her, look
around her... everything she touches appears to be an eye-catching collage.
Marriage and motherhood brought her back East, this time to Martha s Vineyard,
an island off the Massachusetts coast. Her daughter, Chelsea Rhiannon Menemsha,
("her very name ties her to the Vineyard," muses her mother...) became Wendy s pri-
ority. A single, working parent by the time her toddler neared three, this was a woman
who knew how to order her life, establish a base and be a good mom. What did she
set as a goal? Preparing her daughter for the life she wanted to live. She was deter-
mined to give her daughter "roots and wings," and feels she accomplished both.
Living on an island suits Wendy well. She knows how to plan, how to carry through
on the task at hand, how to get to the goal... and best of all she knows how to reach
out, involve those around her, make everyone feel welcome. Before coming to BIG
ARTS, where she is in charge of the volunteers and hospitality, she had stints at The
Schoolhouse Theater, the Shell Museum, and even at the Island Sun.
Her someday dream... to have a shop. "T'd call it Eclectia. It would be a place that's
in and of itself a destination... a mix of gallery, augmented and personalized clothing
and some food."
What does she see as her purpose in life I wondered. When asked her sparkling
smile said it all: "My purpose is to bring light into the room. And eventually I want to
make a difference in a bigger way.
With the wheels churning, she began to talk about "the things I'd do if I wasn t
afraid to do... the me that I want to be." Included in that batch was write books. "One,
only one, would be a child s book. The rest might be on wisdom or fashion... or hey...
maybe a blend of those two. The evolution of an outfit intrigues me.
When not working she reads, catches up on correspondence, gardens and creates
things. Clearly she does not particularly like to go off the island. When I asked how
long she thought she d be here I got a simple and direct "T'll be here until I am not

trying." The audience will find nothing trying about watching this affectionate play.
Biddle is a man who, because of the turbulent years of the 20th century, has expe-
rienced his fair share of historical events, and he shares many of them. The script
involves bits and pieces of the Roosevelt-Truman era, and his regret about not fighting
harder to stop the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II.
Howard is a wonderful actor and gives a superb performance. He allows Biddle to
bluster and complain, ever ready to counter the first sign of a split infinitive. He gets
the best dialogue and is touching and witty as an octogenerian who, in his own words,
now functions "somewhere between lucidity and senility" and is aware that he is in
the process of leaving this life, "the exit light is blinking over the door, and the door is
ajar." Burttram is a worthy counterpart who exudes strength, assurance and vulnerabil-
ity to her character. The looks on her face when Biddle utters his many verbal jabs are
priceless. They play off one another well.
Throughout the six scenes we watch the relationship between the two grow from a
devastating combination to one of trust and admiration. The dialogue is so powerful it
even elicits applause from the audience mid-scene. Directed by Chris Clavelli, Trying

leadership to build one of the nation's top
stem cell programs. His work has opened .~ ~"~
up an entirely new area of scientific
research with enormous potential for life- Dr. Irving Weissman
say Ieel made an exciting step toward the goal of transplanting adult stem cells
to create a new immune system for people with autoimmune or genetic blood diseas-
es. As published in the November 2007 issue of Science, his lab found a novel way to
transplant new blood-forming stem cells into the bone marrow of mice without the tis-
sue-damaging radiation or chemotherapy usually required, thereby effectively replacing
their immune systems. Many aspects of this technique will need to be adapted before
it can be tested in humans, but when those barriers are surmounted, the benefits could
be significant. An immune system transplant, much like a liver or heart transplant,
would give a person with an autoimmune disease, such as multiple sclerosis, hope for
a healthy future.
In addition to being the Virginia and D. K. Ludwig Professor for Clinical
stem cell researcher in lab

Monday Night Movie

... n expat French friend once cautioned, "France is not all
P croissants for breakfast." The BIG ARTS film for 7 p.m.
.on Monday night, April 19 confirms that observation.
f The Class (Entre Les Murs or "between the walls" in French)
illustrates the multicultural challenges present in contemporary
The film is particularly based on a book written by Francois
Begaudeau in an autobiographical account of his teaching expe-
riences in Paris. He plays a fictional version of himself on the
screen as Francois Marin. Marin is a patient, caring and thought-
ful man trying to integrate students; mostly second generation
teenagers from ethnically diverse backgrounds, into a cohesive group in his literature
class. The film won the prestigious Palm d'Or in Cannes last year; the first French film
to win this award in 20 years.
Director Laurent Cantet worked with and filmed a group of school children for a
year to develop this remarkably insightful and emotional experience for the viewer;
you feel almost a part of the class as you begin to recognize each student's personality
traits as they are drawn
out by their teacher.

Piper during an assassination attempt, a
life-threatening injury that he barely sur-
vived, he retreated to the wilds of Florida
to hide out from his enemies and to heal.
After his retirement from rumrunning,
following this near-death experience and
the repeal of Prohibition, Bill returned to
Florida and partnered with the famous
herpetologist Ross Allen in development
of a reptile farm near Silver Springs,
Florida. The rest is history and in 1937
he and his younger brother, Lester, found-
ed the Bonita Springs Reptile Gardens.
This wildlife attraction evolved into the

this operation was Florida s premier
botanical and wildlife tourist destination.
The popular wildlife attraction remains
open and is still owned and managed by
members of the Piper family.
Bill and Lester Piper were no strangers
to living on the edge and doing danger-
ous things. They risked their lives on a
daily basis. As Lester Piper s grandson,
David Piper, Jr. writes in the book s intro-
duction: "who among you would stand
toe to toe with a black bear, dig into an
alligator cave, or try to resuscitate a lion
using mouth to mouth?
The Piper brothers owned and exhib-
ited the world's largest collection of
threatened American crocodiles, and they
also pioneered the captive propagation
of the now endangered Florida panther'
beginning at a time when the state of
Florida was still paying a bounty on these
cats. They, and their animals, like Old
Slewfoot of The Yearling, were featured
in major motion pictures. Their Wonder
Gardens educated tens of thousands of
Americans in the early days of environ-
mental education and eco-tourism. Their
mission was clearly stated in their own
words, "We have only a sincere desire to
give the visitor a clear picture of the thrill-
ing life, dangers, intrigue and constant
struggle for existence that goes on in the
depths of the impenetrable and fascinat-
ing Everglades." The Piper brothers were
undeniably the Wildlife Barons of the
Everglades and this book brings them and
their adventures back to life. Everglades
Wildlife Barons will eventually be avail-
able wherever books are sold. LeBuff will

announce the release of a new
book, Everglades Wildlife Barons:
The Legendary Piper Brothers and
Their Wonder Gardens. This 272-page
biography contains 33 illustrations and
was written by LeBuff and published
by Ralph Curtis Publishing. Curtis and
LeBuff met and became friends in 1952
when they both worked for the two men
who are the subjects of this biography,
the late brothers Bill and Lester Piper of
Bonita Springs. The Piper brothers are
Florida legends and in his book LeBuff
shares the highlights of their unique lives
- long lives that were dedicated to our
indigenous wildlife and the wild lands
collectively known as the Everglades.
Anyone who enjoys and studies Florida's
wildlife, and appreciates a read con-
taining real-life adventures, true deadly
drama, and regional history will enjoy
Between 1926 and 1932 the Piper
brothers plied the waters of the Detroit
River, which separates Wyandotte,
Michigan from Windsor, Ontario,
Canada. During their short but highly
specialized and successful six-year crimi-
nal career, at the height of American
Prohibition, the brothers each amassed
personal fortunes. Their wealth was
earned by ferying lucrative loads of alco-
hol across the river the international
boundary to booze-thirsty Americans.

Last Thursday night the Sanctuary Island Electric softball team buried the Aztec
Plumbing Warriors into a burial mound with a defensive 8-6 victory.
The Golden Glove player of the game was Sanctuary Electric catcher Ray
Walker who single handedly accounted for a dozen Bailey outs. "Actually, he account-
ed for about 4 outs for our team too," commented Sanctuary member Todd Hayes.
Walker's glove was like a casting net on the field. It seemed there was nowhere the
ball could go to avoid him. After the game, Ray autographed his glove and is putting
it up on ebay. He is hoping that with the proceeds he will be able to purchase new

Failure Of The Arizona Legislature
To Pass A Funding Bill Could Open
The Door For Cu bs Move To Na ples
by Ed Frank
M aybe it's not over. Maybe there still is the possibility that
Sthe Chicago Cubs will move their Spring Training head-
I quarters to Naples.
Early this week, a key Arizona legislator said, "it is vey/ unlike-
ly" that the Arizona Legislature will enact a funding mechanism
this year to finance the construction of a new stadium and train-
.t ing facilities for the Cubs in Mesa, Arizona.
"I think practically speaking, it is very unlikely we could get
House Majority Leader John McComish.
"There no potential solution that we can just dot the i's and
cross the t's, so to speak the potential solution that we're really close on. It's very
doubtful that we could get a solution done by the end of April," McComish added.
A memorandum of understanding between the Cubs and Mesa called for a tax on
ticket sales for all 15 teams that train in Arizona to finance the project. That proposal,
however, created a storm of protest from nearly every team except the Cubs.
The tax would have to be approved by the Arizona Legislature.
Failure of the legislature to enact the legislation this year means that one of the key
deadlines between the Cubs and Mesa will not be met.
So does this open the door for the Cubs to pick up stakes in Arizona where they
have trained for 50 years and move to Naples?
Cub spokesman Peter Chase declined comment.
Craig Bouchard, an Illinois native who lives in Naples and is spearheading the Cub-
to-Naples move, was quoted recently in the Chicago Tribune saying he could put a
deal in place in six weeks.
Another key player in the Naples proposal is Gary Davis, a financial adviser who
was recently elected to the Naples City Council. "We could tie up financing in 45
days," he said.
So stay tuned. Naples is ready to pounce if Arizona fails.
2010 Miracle Lose Three Straight to Start Season
It was a rough season start last week for the Fort Myers Miracle baseball team losing
three straight to the Bradenton Marauders, two at home at Hammond Stadium.
The third loss for first-year Manager Jake Mauer's squad was particularly disappoint-
ing as the Miracle took a 3-0 lead into the seventh inning only to spoil starting pitcher
Bobby Lanigan six strong innings by giving up two runs in the seventh and two in the
eighth for the 4-3 loss.
The Miracle are on the road until April 19 when they return to Hammond Stadium
to host the Charlotte Stone Crabs at 7:05 p.m.
Everblades Advance in Playoffs with First-Round Win over Elmira
The Florida Everblades defeated the Elmira (New York) Jackals three games to two
in the first round of the ECHL Kelly Cup Playoffs to move on to play the winner of the
Kalamazoo-Reading in the best-of-seven second round.
The decisive 4-3 series winner over Elmira last Sunday on the road came in the final
55 seconds when Milan Gajic scored with an empty-net goal.
Florida won two of three from Elmira on Elmira s home ice to advance to the sec-

The Dunes Head Tennis Pro
C'OOChes At Sony Ericsson Tour
by Brian Johnson
pro Louis Vosloo,
Sw ho reached te n sh a
No.175 on the ATP
Tour in 2002, tray-
eled to Key Biscayne
on March 20 to coach
Kevin Anderson at I <
the Sony Ericsson
The Sony Ericsson, j4 -
often referred to as the q
Fifth Grand Slam, is a *-
mecca for Sanibel and
Captiva tennis fans Kevin Anderson and Louis Vosloo at the entrance of the Sony
each spring, and as Enicsson Tour venue
usual The Dunes Tennis
Club organized a trip over to the east coast for the benefit of local tennis fans.
Vosloo arrived solo two days before the start of the qualifying rounds to assist his
fellow South African, who is currently ranked 108 on the ATP Tour.
Vosloo s association with Anderson, aged 23, goes back almost a decade. The
Anderson family contacted Vosloo to see if their son, a rising star in South Africa,
could train with him. Vosloo agreed, and he has remained a mentor to the hard-sery-
ing, 6-foot-8 Anderson ever since.
Anderson came to the U.S. to play for the University of Illinois, where he won All-
American honors for three straight years and won the NCAA doubles title in 2006.
He made international news in the tennis world when he pulled off a shock upset of
World No.3 Novak Djokovic in Miami in 2008.
But Anderson, who is still asked about the win over Djokovic by reporters, does not
want to be a one-hit wonder. Vosloo believes Anderson has the talent to reach the Top
30 by the end of the year, and has been providing support and encouragement to his
countryman on an ongoing basis by text, email, and cell phone.
"He s on the move up the rankings, and he feels confident it s only a matter of
time," said Vosloo. "He s so close.

"It was really weird, really
exciting to be back at a tourna-
ment like the Sony Ericsson,"
said Vosloo, who retired in 2003
and played the likes of Pete
Sampras and Andy Roddick
during his career. "You forget
about the hustle and bustle, the Anderson and Vosloo on the practice courts
atmosphere surrounding the
pinnacle of the sport. It was fun to get back in the ring as a coach."
Anderson won his first qualifying match 6-0, 2-6, 6-1 over Argentina s Juan Pablo
Brzezicki. In the second round he played ATP Tour veteran Stefan Koubek, Anderson
weathered a tight first set against the cagey Austrian and won 7-6, 6-1. This put him
into the main draw of the Masters Series 1000 event, regarded as the second most
important tournament in North America after the U.S. Open.
"He s changed his style from a baseliner to a very aggressive all-court player," said
Vosloo. "I think he s hitting the ball really clean.
Anderson played in the stadium on the tournament s marquee court for his first
round match, a 6-3, 6-1 rout over Brazil s Ricardo Mello.
With Anderson on a winning streak, Vosloo called his wife Lynn to join him
in Miami for his next match on Saturday, March 27 against Swiss star Stainislas
In a hot and sunny morning match, Anderson dropped serve early against
Wawrinka, who won an Olympic Gold Medal with Roger Federer in doubles in Beijing
But Anderson found his form, and began to impose his heavy serve and ground
strokes on the World No. 23. He had double break point in the second set, but a
white-hot backhand down the line missed by centimeters, and as happens so often at
the tour level, the window of opportunity soon vanished.
Nevertheless, the 6-4, 7-5 loss demonstrated that he belonged in the same class as
the world s elite players.
"It was a good tournament for him, and now he s on to the clay court season," said
Vosloo, who has returned to the clay himself .

event will be held ..
22 a dabA si e
Event Center in
downtown Fort samira K. Beckwith, Linda Uhler, Sandy Robinson, Kathy McKinley
Myers. and Lou Pontius
promise this year's event will be bigger and better than ever. Due to the sellout of
2009's luncheon with more than 525 guests, organizers have increased this year's
capacity to 700. It is open to ladies and gentlemen.
"The Celebration of Women is a gathering to honor the female spirit and the spe-
cial role women have in our society as caregivers. It is also an opportunity to come
together to express love, share laughs with friends and celebrate life," said Samira K.
Beckwith, president and CEO of Hope HealthCare Services. "The philosophy behind
this event is the same as Hope's mission to give each person the opportunity to live
life to the fullest."
The celebration will feature boutique-style shopping with vendors donating a por-
tion of their proceeds to Hope, a fashion show courtesy of Saks Fifth Avenue and Bell
Tower Shops, a silent auction and raffle for fabulous prizes, fine cuisine, and camara-
derie. According to Erleene Sanders, second-year event chair, this year's mid-summer's
night dream-inspired theme will include trapeze artists, stilt walkers, and mimes. The
fashion show will showcase trapeze artists from Robin Dawn Dance Academy. "It's
really more of a production this year than your typical fashion show," Sanders said.
"Our committee of over 30 local women has been working tirelessly for months to
make this event spectacular and, most importantly, to increase awareness and raise
funds for Hope's programs and services," said Sanders. "We all face end-of-life issues
and whether it is for ourselves or someone we love, Hope provides exceptional care
and services each and every day in our community."
Doors will open at 11 a.m. with a champagne reception. The lunch and fashion
show will begin at 12:30 p.m.
Men's and women's spring, summer and resort fashions, from casual to evening
wear, will be featured in the fashion show along with creations by Miami designer
Craig Signer and silver jewelry by designer Donald Huber.
Some of the silent auction and raffle prizes include a washer and dryer from Home-
Tech, a week's stay at a villa in Spain, designer jewelry, a 40-inch television courtesy
of Bill Smith Appliances and a vacation package from Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort
Proceeds will benefit Hope's programs and services with a special focus on Hope
Kids Care which includes Pediatric Hospice Care, Partners in Care: Together for Kids
(PIC), a palliative care program, and Rainbow Trails, a free day camp for children and
their families who are coping with a life-limiting illness or the recent loss of a loved
Hope provides developmentally appropriate care to infants, children and adoles-
cents with life-limiting conditions, and their families. Hope's holistic approach to hos-
pice care for children includes emotional, spiritual and practical support, art and music
therapy, massage and aromatherapy and pet therapy. In addition, PIC program servic-
es offer pain control and symptom management, in-home care, counseling and respite
for family caregivers. Grief support and counseling are also available to children coping
with the loss of a loved one, or serious illness, whether their own or a loved one's.
Individual tickets are $55. Tables for eight guests are $550. Event sponsorships are
$1,500 to $10,000. Valet parking will be available.

Part 2 of 2: The Importance of Filtration
What You Can t

YOu, Or Will It) .
by Br an Haes
n Part 1 in this
series we spoke
~I 1of the problems
of airborne indoor
..e : .recirculated through
.your air condition-
ingS and heating
system. In this sec-
tion, we will show
available to help remedy this problem.
There are literally hundreds of different
options on the market today. We will talk
of three with the pros and con's of each:
The Cheap and Easy, The Workhorse,
and The High-Tech Nuclear Sub option.
The Cheap and Easy is just as the
name implies. With this form of filtra-
tion, we'll talk of the pros first. Well, we
already did. It's cheap and easy. This
type of filtration will only trap the largest
of contaminants, allowing asthma and
allergy irritants to bypass this media eas-
ily, you can actually hear the little buggers
laughing as they whiz by. On a more
serious note, only five to eight percent of
airborne contaminants are trapped. So
if you are an allergy or asthma sufferer
or you smoke in the conditioned space
this is not a good option for you or your
The second type of filtration we will
talk of is a HEPA (high efficiency particle
arrestor) filter (The Workhorse). This
type was first developed for hospitals and
clean room applications. It is installed in-
line with your air handler. It uses a 5-7"
pleated filter for particle accumulation
trapping up to 70 percent of airborne
contaminants. It allows a much greater
surface area for contaminant collection by
far, filtering the air you breathe to a much
cleaner state and does not need changing
The last type of filtration (The
High-Tech Nuclear Sub Option) is the
electronic air cleaner. This type of filtra-
tion uses a series of different filtration
methods to create the cleanest air pos-
sible. This system uses a pre-filter to trap
large particles. It then takes the airborne
contaminates and charges them with a
positive charge; they then are attracted
to the negatively charged collector plates
where they stay leaving the discharged
air up to 95 percent cleaner than when it
entered the system. The only downfall of
this system is the initial cost of installation
but is offset by the superior quality of air.

A contemporary casual room, furnished

this interior will serve them well without

Fabrics can provide an amazing array

breakfast room to sound proofing uphol-

Your family can feel free to put their feet
up on a large fabric covered ottoman

just the blue and white stripe variety but
are now available in geometric corals and
multi-colored plaids, as well as sophisti-
cated mocha leaf patterns.
Having played a minor role for the
past few years, patterned fabrics are mak-
ing a strong comeback. Following their
lengthy absence, few people remember
how to use patterned fabrics effectively;
even making them a little frightening to
some. This makes pattern one of today's
freshest options for updating our interi-
Fabrics can be beautiful, friendly and
fun. They can set the mood, enhance a
theme, establish a trend, soften sound,
control light, provide privacy, and calm
our busy lives. Fabulous fabrics... indeed!

would be quite dreary
were it not for the
beauty, interest, comfort and design
that fabrics bring to our lives. Fabric
enhances and softens the interiors of
our homes as no other design element
can. Combining the two strongest ele-
ments of interior design, the psychology
of color and the psychology of pattern,
fabric brings human qualities to our sur-
roundings on a very personal level.
The ultimate advantage of using fab-
rics in our interiors is the strong power it
possesses to set a mood; from soft, quiet
and sophisticated to bold and beautiful.
There are literally tens of thousands of
fabrics available to choose from, with new
collections being introduced every fall and
spring; thus, assuring the perfect color
and pattern for each of our tastes and
needs. Our ability to apply these colors,
textures and prints of fabrics gives each
of us a unique opportunity to enjoy truly
Our imaginations need not be limited
to colors and patterns but should expand

Don't Get Walshed Up
By Your Dishwasher
by Laura Zocki Puerto, LCEC Public Relations Specialist
Your dishwasher can do it all! In addition to washing, rins-
ing and sanitizing, it also saves you time in the kitchen.
But, that convenience does come at a price. According
.to LCEC energy advisors, the average dishwasher uses about
it~360 kilowatt-hours of electricity and costs $30 to $50 a year
-C to operate.
That s quite a load (pun intended) on an electric bill. The fol-
lowing tips can help you reduce the heat your dishwasher adds to
Your electric bill.
Use the energy-saving cycles whenever possible.
If your dishwasher has a booster heater, turn your water
heater thermostat down to 120 degrees.
*Resist the temptation to pre-rinse dishes. Dishwashers today do a thorough job of
cleaning. Just scrape off the excess food and let the dishwasher do the rest.
*Wash only full loads and refrain from hand washing dishes throughout the day. It s
cheaper to put the dishes in the dishwasher and wash them all at once.

April And May
by Dan Schuyler
and Karen Bell
April celebrates the bright brilliance of
diamonds, and May brings the vibrant
green of emeralds.
The name comes from the Greek
adamas, meaning invincible. The brilliant
white stones are thought to offer the
wearer courage and strength and to bring
bad luck to those who steal them, a myth
that has come true over the years.
The Greeks said that diamonds were
the tears of the gods and the Romans
thought they were splinters of stars,
romantic viewpoints echoed by the use of
diamonds as gifts for special occasions.
Diamond is a form of carbon, one
of the various allotropes of the element.
There are many fancy or colored versions
of the stone, created through the inclu-
sion of other elements within the carbon.
Diamonds have been known in India
for at least 3,000 years but most likely
6,000 years. Roughly 49 percent of dia-
monds originate from central and south-

Along encrusted pendant
the birthstone for April, diamonds are
talismans for Aries as well as the gem
that celebrates 10th and 75th wedding
The emerald is traditionally associated
with a deep vibrant green, often with a
slightly bluish tinge. Emeralds are a green
variety of the benyl mineral species and
can range from light to dark green, often
having a blue or yellow tint. In order to
be classified as an emerald, the color
must be reasonably intense or the gem is
simply called green beryl.
Over the centuries emeralds have been
credited with a variety of magical powers
including seeing the future, bringing the
wearer riches and power, strengthening
memory and intelligence, averting evil
and revealing the truth. In ancient Egypt,
where emeralds were first discovered, the
gem's green color symbolized life itself.
Columbia has been the world's leading
emerald producer since the 1500s. .
Emeralds are naturally hard and
scratch-resistant, but require gentle wear
due to their clarity characteristics.
Besides being the birthstone for May,
the emerald is the zodiac sign of Cancer
as well as the gem that celebrates 20th
and 35th wedding anniversaries.

Hi, my name is Tanya and I am a one-year-
old female lab mix. Do you have people
in your family? Do those people like
dogs. I ask this because I'm looking to be some-
one s family dog. Do you need a family dog? If
you do, I'm your girl. I'm very smart, I can do
commands; Come," Sit," Stay," and today I
learned to "Lie Down." I will be learning more
ever day. Tomorrow it s "Roll Over.
I love to play, but I know when playtime is over
too. I'm very attentive to people and I love and I
do my best to not disappoint them. I know I will
be a great family dog because I know what it feels
like to be loved. It s just been a while. Oh yeah,
and I'm really cute too.
My adoption fee is $75 minus a discount when
you draw an egg from Animal Semvices' adoption
basket containing a coupon worth $20 to $75 off
the regular price of all pet adoptions during April s
Adoption Egg-stravaganza promotion.
Well hello, humans. You ve fallen into my trap
perfectly. My name is Cleo. I am a two-year-old
female seal point Siamese kitty. Could you use a
little more attention in your life? If yes, then I could
make the perfect pet for you. Did you know that
Siamese cats are "dog-like" in their devotion to
their owners? Us kitties make great companions
and, of course, we re so incredibly beautiful. What
more could you want? You don t even have to
take me for a walk; just give me lots of snuggles
and some time to chase a feather on a stick, or
even chase my own shadow.
However, I must ask that you keep me strictly
as an indoor pet where it is safe as I am declawed
on all four feet. That means I will never scratch
your furniture ever. I get along with everyone so
if you have other pets, I would love for a pet to
show me the ropes. I can t wait to meet you and
my new family.
My adoption fee is just like Tanya: $75 minus
a discount when you draw an egg ~from the basket
which contains a coupon worth $20 to $75 off.
For information about this week s pets, call
533-7387 (LEE-PETS) or log on to Animal
Services' Web site at www.LeeLostPets.com.
When calling, refer to the animal s ID number.
The shelter is open for adoptions from 11:30 a.m.
to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday at 5600
Banner Drive, Fort Myers, next to the Lee County
Sheriff s Office, off Six Mile Cypress Parkway.
Cleo ID #469405
Female Siamese Cat Found
Think maybe I might
belong to someone you -
know? Please contact PAWS at
839-5215 if you know my owners. .
I will be put up for adoption if my
owners can t be found.
