Oil Will Not
Impact Lee
County Coastline
The National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration
(NOAA) has updated its map of
where the BP gulf oil spill may be head-
ing. It appears the crude has almost no
chance of reaching the coast of Lee
County or Sanibel and Captiva. But it .
is expected to affect much more distant
areas of Florida, including the Florida
Keys and Miami, according to computer
model projections.
Albeit less than one percent prob-
ability of hitting Southwest Florida along
the Lee and Collier coastlines, the same
NOAA forecast from Friday, July 1

Oil-Free Sanibel Chosen For
L. = Release Of Pelicans, Gannets
by Anne Mitchell
Large number of brown pelicans and northern gannets rescued
from the oil spill along the Louisiana coast were transported to
Sanibel Monday and released at an oil-free island beach.
Twenty-one brown pelicans and 11 northern gannets were airlifted
in transport crates aboard a U.S. Coast Guard HC-144 Ocean Sentry
aircraft from New Orleans Airport to Page Field General Aviation
Airport in Fort Myers. They made the trip to Sanibel in four rented
The birds, which had been rescued and rehabilitated after being
oiled in the Gulf Coast waters, were set free before a crowd of onlook-
ers at Gulfside City Park. The release was authorized and coordinated
under the direction of the Unified Commands in New Orleans, Houma,
Mobile and Miami with assistance from the National Park Service
(NPS), U.S. Coast Guard, Louisiana Department of Wildlife and
Fisheries, and the City of Sanibel.
Officials chose Sanibel as a release site based on three criteria, said
Dr. Jenny Powers, the NPS wildlife veterinarian who accompanied the
birds from New Orleans.
"First is the suitability of habitat and then the oil trajectory and
weather," she said. "The release site also needs to be close to an air-

Lifting Of Ban On
Bay Docks Suffers
Another Setback
by Anne Mitchell
The Sanibel Planning Commission
was to have sent a draft ordinance
to the city council on Tuesday,
July 20 that would lift the 17-year ban
on any new docks being built on the
bay. But that will have to wait because
City Attormey Ken Cuyler on Tuesday
told the commissioners he needs more
time to review the legal issues involved.
The commission was asked by the city
council to draft the ordinance, but it's
easier said than done. Commissioners
are having misgivings about lifting the
ban, which could result in 60 more docks
between Woodring Point and the Sanibel
Sanibel's natural resources director,
Rob Loflin, says additional structures
would block out light and harm seagrass-
es, which are vital to the bay's filtration
system and sealife habitat.
Rae Ann Wessel of the Sanibel-
Captiva Conservation Foundation has
said the fact that the bay is habitat for the
endangered smalltooth sawfish may help
Sanibel's legal arguments.
The city recently built a boat dock next
to the public boat ramp on the bay for
the police department's boat. According
to Planning Director Jim Jordan, the city
is exempt from its own regulations where
safety and welfare are concerned.
Attorney Stephen Hartsell, who repre-
sents seven bayside property owners who
are pursuing the right to have docks like
their neighbors, told the commission two
weeks earlier that "banning docks is con-
demning part of their property rights...
their ability to have a dock adds to the
value of your property."

The planning commission has dis-
cussed the dock issue at least three times
since April and is now slated to debate it
further on July 27. "We will see where
we are at that point," said Cuyler.M

Third Anniversary

Village Inc. and the Committee

Planning Is Off To
A Roaring Start
The Sanibel Community Association
(SCA) hosted a meeting recently
for a cross-section of island busi-
nesses, not-for-profits and interested
volunteers to talk about the 75th anni-
versary 2012 Shell Fair. The purpose
of the meeting was to see if there was
interest in making this an islands-wide
week of Shell-abration. "The enthusi-
asm and the number of ideas that were
discussed exceeded our expectations,"
said Salli Kirkland, president of the
SCA. "We want to bring the community
together to promote and celebrate our
islands' status as one of the best shelling
locations in the country and in so doing
have an island-wide shell festival, not
just at The Community House, but in
stores, theaters, restaurants and lodging
The Shell Fair and Show is a
major fundraiser for the SCA and its
Shellcrafters, as well as for the Shell Club.
This four-day event takes place the first
week in March every year and brings
people in from all over the country and
abroad. The Shell Fair has its schedule,
but with such a milestone year coming
up in 2012, the organizers Anne Joffe,
Ann Arnoff and Bill Schecker decided
the Shell Fair should be bigger and broad-
er based. This meeting confirmed their
belief that the community agrees.

There are a lot more opportunities for
"shell mania" if the event goes for the
whole week and the attendees discussed
ways their organizations could enhance
the activities by holding other shell events
and creating more fun. Ideas included an
artist competition for designing the logo
to be used in a myriad of different ways;
shell book author readings, shell products
in stores, an historical shell show travel-
ing display, a shell scavenger hunt, a play
with shells as tje theme, special musical
performances, and shelling trips. And the
list just kept growing, from a shell fashion
show to a Shell-abration cocktail.
This was the beginning of a summer
of planning, as the marketing for such an
event needs to be communicated well in
advance to get the national recognition
that will convey the theme; "when you
think shells, think Sanibel and Captiva."
There is a lot of work to be done and
many sub-committees will take specific
segments and bring them to life: retail,
lodging, restaurants, promotion, media,
historical offerings, and special event
coordination. "Join us for Shell-abration
planning and have some fun creating
this most exciting weeklong event," said
SCA event chair Marge Meek. "Contact
The Community House at 472-2155
to volunteer to be part of our ongoing
meetings. We need at least 100 people
involved and committed to making the
75th Shell Fair and Show an islands-wide
Shell-abration. We need you!"4

Architects Hired For
Community House Project


Salli Kirkland, Ron Weaver and Marge Meek go over plans for the remodel of The
Community House

he Sanibel Community Association (SCA) has chosen the winner of the archi-
tectural design competition to remodel The Community House. After inter-
viewing and hearing presentations from several area firms, BSSW Architects,
Inc. has been contracted to work with the SCA this summer in developing a master
plan that will provide the framework for the final design. The lead architect, Ron
Weaver, is no stranger to Sanibel. He has lived here for a number of years and has
worked on several projects on the islands. BSSW's qualifications include historic
buildings, country clubs, civic buildings and resorts, all experiences that are relevant
to The Community House.
Salli Kirkland, president of the SCA, said, "Ron brought innovative ideas to us the
first time we interviewed him and as we have started working with him, he continues
to bring a refreshing perspective to our project."

The Periwinkle Partnership
Mission Continues
M other Nature has more
destructive arrows in
her quiver than just *.
hurricanes. Over the past few
years our island vegetation
has had to cope with scale
outbreaks, long dry spells and
most recently, an extremely
cold winter. Our coconut
palms were especially hard hit
by the cold temperatures, and
many did not survive. With
the city's current budgetary
constraints, the prospect of
replacing the dead palms and
restoring other deteriorated
areas along Periwinkle Way
seemed unlikely.
With the evident success
of its past efforts to restore
Periwinkle Way, some may
have assumed the partnership's
mission achieved. However, the
Periwinkle Partnership again
recognized the need to help -*F ?
maintain the unique beauty
of our main thoroughfare.
Originally, the partnership
was formed after Hurricane
Charley in August 2004 to Work in progress
work with the City of Sanibel to
help with Periwinkle Way's restoration. The partnership is comprised of the Sanibel-
Captiva Chamber of Commerce, Sanibel Beautification, Inc. and the Sanibel-Captiva
Conservation Foundation. Today, as then, its mission continues.
Recently, the partnership contracted with RS Walsh Landscaping, Inc. not only to
replace dead coconut palms along Periwinkle Way at Donax, Roadside Park and other

locations, but also to sod the grass areas near King's Crown Street and in front of the
Tree Tops Center business complex. A royal palm was planted behind the flagpole on
Lindgren to replace a royal that died several months ago, and with the approval of a
Vanasse-Daylor landscaping plan by Gene Rebeor of Friday's, the Sanibel Diamond
Store, the front of the lot adjacent to Huxter's along the shared use path now is plant-
ed with an eye-pleasing selection of native trees and shrubs.
One good result of the cold winter was that it killed four established beauty leaf
trees that, as it turns out, are non-native, invasive. These were removed from the
northwest corner of Causeway Boulevard and Periwinkle Way and replaced with coco-
nut palms.
Looking ahead, the partnership remains committed to its mission of maintaining
the beauty of our unique Periwinkle Way.0

If you missed the parade or would like to see highlights, the Sanibel Community
Association announces that a Freedom Rocks! parade video has been created
from the live video taping of the parade on July 3.
The video captures the 20th year of the historic parade along with commentary
and interviews by Sanibel's own Evette Zurbriggen, emcee of Dancing with the Islands'
Stars fame, who announces the floats, interacts with the crowd and helps Sam Bailey
push the Model T up to the judge's stand.
The Sanibel Community Association would like to thank Gene Rogers from Attic
Chat Productions and Rusty Farst of Video Biography, who donated their personal
time to set up the equipment that included three video cameras, wireless antennas,
a scissor boom truck and mobile production trailer. They began at 5:30 a.m. parade

Secure Shredding, Inc. will be on site to destroy unwanted documents

he Sanibel Community Association
(SCA) will be hosting a drive to
shred your unwanted documents
and papers on Saturday, July 31 from 9
a.m. to noon at The Community House.
The slow pace of summer makes it the
perfect time to organize your home and
office. It's also the perfect time to destroy
the sensitive documents you no longer
need. But, if the thought of tediously
hand-feeding piles of personal papers into
your home shredder makes it tough to
get motivated, then the perfect solution is
to let someone else shred it for you safely

and quickly.
Bring documents such as bank state-
ments, credit cards receipts, old checks,
income tax returns or anything that con-
tains personal information, while watch-
ing the professionals at Secure Shredding,
Inc. pulverize your papers into bits within
mere minutes.
The event is open to the public. A
small fee of $5 for one or two boxes per
car will be collected. If you have more
boxes, an additional donation is request-
ed. All proceeds go to The Community
House operating fund.#

ev first gazed
upon the Grand
Canyon, an aide
reportedly said to
him, "What shall
we do with it, Mr.
TR's reply: "Nothing. It can't be
improved upon."
The ultimate Rough Rider may not
have started the conservation move-
ment, but he certainly moved it up a few
notches on the national agenda. And his
Grand Canyon comment -- apocryphal or
not might be viewed today as a sort of
baseline against which the ongoing ten-
sion between conservation and develop-
ment can be measured.
In a pristine world, Teddy's comment
might once have been uttered about
Sanibel. But unlike the canyon, people
don't come here just to gaze. They tend
to stay and live here -- a good thing, we
think, else we would not be residing on
this island that we have all grown to love.
When it comes to much of our island,
however, it can't really be improved
upon, which is why the Sanibel ethos
reflects a determination to preserve that
which remains pristine and undeveloped.

The Greater Challenge
The greater challenge, perhaps, is
allowing for the kind of development that
we judge as either necessary or desirable,
without unduly encroaching upon the
unique beauty, harmony, and environ-
mental quality of the natural world that
envelops us here.
This is a difficult balancing act that
we on Sanibel have been engaged in for
decades. And, although not every deci-
sion made along the way in this effort has
met with instant and universal approval,
it is hard to argue with the results to date.
These can perhaps best be summed up
by observing the degree to which we
have succeeded in abiding by these words
from the Sanibel Vision Statement:
"The City of Sanibel chooses to
remain unique through a development
pattern which reflects the predominance
of natural conditions and characteristics
over human intrusions. All forms of
development and redevelopment will pre-
serve the community's unique small town
And how well have we measured
up to this standard? The evidence, I
think, is clear and abundant. Consider
that the predominance of those "natural
conditions and characteristics" meets
and delights the senses and nourishes
the spirit of all who visit and live on this
incomparable island just as we daily
experience the fruits of having accommo-
dated those "human intrusions" in a way
that preserves the small town character of
our community.
None of this has happened by acci-
dent. And none of it will survive by indif-

The 1974 incorporation and early
development of Sanibel as an indepen-
dently governed city within Lee County
led to the Sanibel Plan, a model of envi-
ronmentally sensitive development that
has gained international acclaim. And
over the years, all those who are dedi-
cated to that plan, and to the vision state-
ment, have built upon each others' efforts
to protect this island while meeting the
challenges of a growing and prosperous
Milestones Along The Way
Is there specific evidence of this suc-
cess "on the ground?" We need only
look at the significant milestones along
the way. Here are just a few of the more
recent ones:
The bridge. It was literally decades
ago that Lee County first proposed
replacing the Sanibel drawbridge and
causeway islands with an enormous,
single span bridge that would have leapt
from the mainland to Sanibel in one
great arc. After years of vigorous debate,
fierce opposition, a lawsuit, and endless
attempts at resolution, the drawbridge
was replaced, but we have retained most
of the low profile bridge and the islands
forming the causeway that brings us so
gently onto Sanibel.
Pond Apple Park. Developers had
planned to install a huge commercial
and resort complex at the intersection of
Periwinkle Way and Bailey Road. Most
islanders were appalled at the prospect of
such a high-density development set liter-
ally at the entrance to our island; we were
looking for ways to ease traffic conges-
tion, not multiply it exponentially. Again,
individuals, groups, and key members of

the city government rose to oppose the
development. The plan was eventually
abandoned, as the city purchased the
commercially zoned parcel of the site and
preserved the undeveloped land as Pond
Apple Park.
The Charter Amendments. In 2004,
a group of residents, including members
of the Committee of the Islands, met to
draft what have come to be known as the
Charter Amendments. Their plan was to
enshrine in the city charter which can-
not be changed without voter approval
-- some of the basic land use regulations
that make Sanibel unique. These included
not only limitations on building height
and residential development intensity, but
also provisions to increase the indepen-
dence of the planning commission. These
amendments were approved by the vot-
ers in the March 2005 election.
Protecting Against Encroachments
As we mentioned above, none of
this happens by accident; none of it sur-
vives by indifference. The Committee of
the Islands has long fought to preserve
Sanibel against such encroachments. Not
only, for example, was it instrumental
in drafting the charter amendments,
but it also appropriately dubbed them
The Peoples Choice Amendments and
pursued the campaign funded by our
members' donations -- that put them on
the ballot and led to their approval by the
As we draw our attention back to the
vision statement, we see that it further
describes Sanibel as...
"... a barrier island sanctuary, one on
which a diverse population lives in har-
mony with the island's wildlife and natural
habitats. The Sanibel community must be
vigilant in the protection and enhance-
ment of its sanctuary characteristics.
Can Sanibel be improved upon?
Maybe. But maybe, too, the best way to
do that is to "be vigilant"... and to keep
improving upon our own efforts to pro-
tect this island's uniqueness.
Teddy Roosevelt would approve.

ISLAND SUN -JULY 16, 2010 11

In The Coral Reef
by Leah Biery,
Sanibel Sea School
H ow many bug bites does it take x
to love the ocean? Sanibel Sea
School's Coral Reef Week was an
ambitious mix of tent camping, marine -
marvels, rain and a big contribution to the
blood-sucking insect population of Big Pine
Key. All for the love of the ocean. But
campers returned happy from three nights
of camping at the Big Pine Key Fishing
Lodge Campground our base camp for
coral reef adventures.
On the first day of our trip, we took a hc
bumpy boat trip to the gulf stream, which
is currently about five miles offshore from
the Keys. Some of us had the opportunity
to experience seasickness for the first time, Some of the gang on the boat trip
but we all got to observe the deep blue
color of the gulf stream then we dove in
and realized how clear it actually is! We practiced our free diving skills as we stared at
the shafts of light as they disappeared into the abyss, overcame our fears, and floated
on among clumps of sargassum, a type of floating algae that is a hallmark of the gulf
stream. It is a pretty big feat to snorkel in water over 300 feet deep some of us were
treated to a glimpse of a mako sharking cruising below us.
Our ultimate destination was Looe Key Reef. If you've never been diving at Looe
Key National Marine Sanctuary in the Florida Keys, you've deprived yourself of one
of the great American outdoor experiences. Like a big outstretched hand, Looe has
the classic spur and groove reef structure. Sanibel Sea School campers swimming
over the coral outcroppings spotted a Goliath grouper, barracudas, several sharks, and
thousands of reef fish. We also examined the tiny zooxanthellae that produce nutrients
for coral in return for protection and access to light. The zooxanthellae are responsible
for coral's bright colors. Back at base camp, we found hogfish, stingrays, and a batfish
in the seagrass. And what would a campout be for 12-year-old boys without a rousing
game of contact-tag football before dinner.
Thursday began with a talk from Joy Tatgenhorst, a marine educator from the
Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. She taught us about Marine Protected Areas
and coral reef ecosystems. Afterwards, we hopped on the boat for another trip to the
gulf stream. There, we snorkeled with a large school of mahi-mahi, jellyfish, and a
beautiful tripletail hanging out under a floating cooler lid, the only visible structure out
there where no land was in sight. How many of you have ever snorkeled in the pelagic
zone where most inhabitants will never see the bottom? It was a big experience for
most of us. Nearer shore, we snorkeled the patch reefs of Bahia Honda State Park to
explore coral heads and communities of sea fans. We saw many sea biscuits and lob-
sters, and campers collected beautiful old glass bottles from the sea floor. Some of us
followed a school of seven Caribbean reef squid as they led us through their environ-
ment it was hard to tell who was leading and who was following at times.
After dinner, we built campfires and roasted s'mores. Some of us braved the dark
waters for a night snorkel, equipped with glow sticks and dive lights. The ocean floor
was teeming with lobsters and crabs, and we saw squid, shrimp, and starfish among

ast week, CROW was contacted by
the U.S. Coast Guard Command
in Miami to assist with the trans-
fer of 46 injured pelicans being flown
from Louisiana to Ft. Lauderdale. Once
that coast guard flight landed, the birds
needed to be brought to the Pelican
Harbor Rescue Center in Miami for
rehabilitative care. Due to their stressed
condition, the pelicans needed to be
transported in temperature controlled
trucks and the coast guard was having
difficulty in coordinating the specialized
transport needed to get these patients to
their destination in Miami.
CROW contacted our friends and
supporters at RLR Investments and they
immediately made arrangements to
have that specialized transport in place
in less than three hours! All of us at
CROW would like to extend our deepest
thanks and our appreciation for all that
RLR Investments has done to help save
these special lives. They have also been
involved in helping others during the oil
catastrophe to help move medical sup-
plies and other items needed to facilitate
rescue and rehabilitation of the oiled birds
and marine mammals.
On behalf of our board, staff, vol-
unteers and especially on behalf of our
patients, I would like to thank RLR
Investments for all they do to help
CROW save lives through compassion,
care and education and for all they are
doing to help others save wildlife in this

Continental Shelf
Protects Local
Beaches From
Oil Spill
Recent projections by the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration (NOAA) confirm
the sentiments of a leading local expert
that there is a minimal likelihood of oil
from the Deepwater Horizon/BP oil
spill impacting The Beaches of Fort
Myers & Sanibel on Southwest Florida's
Gulf coast.
In a technical report released July 2,
NOAA reports that the probability of oil
impacting the destination is less than one
percent and that the probability of oiling
for much of the west coast of Florida is
20 percent or less. It further states that
any oil reaching the area would have
spent considerable time degrading and
dispersing and would be in the form of
scattered tar balls and not a large surface
slick of oil.
In the report, NOAA used data regard-
ing historical wind and ocean currents
to project the likelihood that surface oil
from the oil spill will impact additional
U.S. coastline. The projections, part of
NOAA's comprehensive response to
the unprecedented gulf oil disaster, can
help guide the ongoing preparedness,
response and cleanup efforts.
The threat outlined in NOAA's model
does not necessarily indicate that oil will
come ashore. Whether or not it does will
depend upon wind and ocean currents at
the time. In addition to these and other

had the

Early Bird
Dining $12.Y

natural factors, booms and other coun-
termeasures could be used to mitigate
coastal contact.
The report echoes statements from
Kristie Anders, education director for the
Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation,
who earlier stated that the chances of
oil impacting local beaches are slim. She
said the loop current in the gulf follows
the edge of the West Florida Continental
Shelf, which runs parallel to the state's
coast and extends to about 150 miles off
the destination's shores. When the strong
current hits the shelf, it curves southward
along its edge.
"The continental shelf serves as our
guardian angel," said Anders. "Barring a
major storm, it's the greatest reason to be
optimistic that we will experience minimal
impact from the spill, since it will steer
the loop current away from our area and
well offshore of Southwest Florida."
Anders further stated that the Gulf
Stream, a warm Atlantic Ocean current
and one of the strongest known ocean
currents, originates in the gulf as the
Loop Current that is steered by the con-
tinental shelf. The shelf is the extended
perimeter of each continent that was part
of the continent during glacial periods
when sea levels were lower, but the shelf
is undersea in relatively shallow waters
during interglacial periods such as the cur-
rent time frame.
To date, NOAA reports that no signifi-
cant amount of oil has entered the Loop
NOAA's projections are based on a
model it created by compiling information
regarding 500 possible scenarios. Details
of NOAA's findings can be found at:

CROW Case Of The Week:

Kemp's Ridley

Sea Turtle
by Brian Johnson
T 'he fishing
pier at Fort
., JL Myers Beach
S has been the scene
of a number of sea
turtle accidents in
recent weeks.
On July 7 Fort
SMyers Beach volun-
teer Kay DeHayes
was called to the
pier to pick up a
Kemp's Ridley sea
turtle who had been caught by an angler
and reeled in.
CROW staff had explained, over the
phone, the art of gently reeling in a turtle,
said Veterinarian Dr. Amber McNamara.
DeHayes had no sooner headed off
for Sanibel with the turtle in a cooler
when another call came in about a
hooked sea turtle. So she turned around
and went back to the pier.
Unfortunately, when she arrived she
learned the angler had cut the line and
the sea turtle had vanished.
CROW urges anglers never to cut
the line as it can very easily lead to the
turtle's death they ask that all sea turtles
be taken in to CROW so staff can make
sure they have not swallowed a hook.

during surgery at CROW

"The Kemp's Ridley was pretty spunky
when she arrived," said Dr. Amber. "You
could see the hook buried in her tongue.
She was flapping her flippers when we
picked her up."
They gave the 2.1-kilogram marine
creature pain medication and valium, and
planned for surgery later in the after-
noon. Because it would be such a short
procedure, they decided not to put her
under full anesthesia, which always carries
the risk of complications.

With the turtle under moderate seda-
tion, and her jaw propped open by a
speculum, Dr. Amber reached into her
mouth and pressed the hook further in so
she could cut off the barb. The hook had
completely pierced her tongue and the
curved tip was visible below the turtle's
"It had gone all the way through and
was sitting on the floor of her mouth,"
said Dr. Amber.

Within 10 minutes, Dr. Amber man-
aged to clip off the barb and slip the
hook back through her tongue, finally rid-
ding it from the Kemp's Ridley's body.
"We took a radiograph afterwards to
make sure there was not another hook
in her stomach, and were happy to find
it clear," said Dr. Amber. "We put in her
a plastic tub for the night with a little bit
of water at the bottom to hydrate and
soothe her. She rested and was quiet all
the next day."

Group of 24 Shell Point Village residents boarded Captiva Cruises' brand new
Santiva catamaran for a pleasure cruise in celebration of Father's Day. The
excursion was led by Captain George with eco-narration by Richard Finkel.
Passengers watched while program coordinator Bev Chandley literally unrolled and
assembled a serving table which was quickly covered with snacks, such as fresh water-
melon, brownies, cookies, nuts, cheeses, crackers and fresh berries. Cold beverages
were passed out to battle the summer heat.
In addition to enjoying a beautiful catamaran outing, the group heard Finkel explain
the importance of the estuary ecosystem and how without it life in Southwest Florida
would not have been possible.

Snowy plovers nest on the beach and SCCF (Sanibel-Captiva Conservation
Foundation) coordinates the monitoring of snowy plover nesting on Sanibel. Protective
exclosures are staked around the nests. Please do not enter the staked exclosures and
keep dogs out as well. When snowy plovers are not moving, they are extremely well
camouflaged. If a snowy plover is flushed from its nest, it takes very little time for the
hot sun to damage the eggs.
The snowy plover is a state-listed, threatened species on Sanibel. The most recent
estimate indicates that around 200 pairs of snowy plovers remain along the west coast
of Florida, from the Panhandle through Cape Sable. Snowy plover nesting season runs
through August, and they can nest two or three times in one season
You can learn more about snowy plovers on Sanibel at the weekly program offered
on Friday at 10 at SCCF's Nature Center, 3333 Sanibel-Captiva Road. After a talk
about snowies, the group will carpool out to the beach to learn how to spot these
elusive shorebirds in their native habitat. For more information, visit

Paul's First Tarpon
by Capt.
Matt Mitchell
T arpon fishing
had been slow
all week when
long-time client
SPaul Black from
New Jersey called
me telling me he
was coming to
town and wanted
to tarpon fish. I
have fished with Paul for about five
years and have never been able to close
the deal on a tarpon for him. His wife
Donna and his son Paul Jr. have both
caught tarpon while out fishing with me
but for some reason I have just not been
able to get Paul a tarpon to the boat.
Any way you could lose a tarpon it's
happened to Paul.We have had circle
hooks break in two, we have had fish
wrap around barnacle-encrusted pilings,
tarpon jumping and throwing the hook,
and fish that just plain came unstuck for
no reason at all. What's worse than the

lost fish is his wife has landed several tar-
pon and on one trip even did it on back-
to-back casts. If I remember right, on that
same trip a few years ago I had Paul cast
to where Donna had just hooked the last
two fish; I cast her bait to where Paul
had been fishing for more than a hour
without a bite. Within five minutes she
was hooked up again. She really likes to
rib him about his bad luck with tarpon
As we headed out I explained there
just had not been many tarpon around
this week but if he wanted to give it a
shot we could go try. Running up to my
first spot of the day, Foster's Point on
North Captiva, we shut down and troll-
ing-motored around looking for rolling
fish. After 20 minutes or so we continued
north looking around Captiva Pass and
Useppa without seeing a single fish roll. I
headed back south to one of my favorite
sand holes south of Captiva Rocks and
dropped anchor. After soaking some
cut baits for a hour or so we caught a
few blacktip sharks but still did not see a
single rolling tarpon.
After no luck up north I decided to go
bend the rod on some blacktip sharks.
After a half-hour or so of non-stop black-
tip shark action on light tackle, Paul had

a smile on his face and I knew just where
we were going to go camp out for one
last shot at a tarpon. Cruising back south
I pulled up to my GPS mark anchored
up, set out the cut bait spread and
handed off the live bait rod. After about
an hour we had a few big shark runs on
the cut baits but still had not even seen a
Then it happened. A tarpon must
have picked up one of the cut baits,
breaking the line and jumping twice
within 30 feet of the boat. Now I felt bet-
ter that we might have a chance and was
ready to sit for a while. Within a half-hour
of seeing the tarpon, Paul hooked a tar-
pon on the live bait rod. The fish jumped
the first time and stayed hooked as I
quickly cleared the other rods. Then it
happened again. The fish jumped and the
hook came loose. It was nothing Paul did
wrong, it just happened and it's all part
of tarpon fishing but come on, give the
guy a break. We both just looked at each
other knowing that might have been the
only shot at a tarpon for the trip.
Resetting the cut bait rods I placed
them in the holders and put a fresh pin-
fish on for Paul. He cast out the bait and
within 30 seconds of the bait hitting the
water there was the huge silver flash and
he was on again. The tarpon made a few
quick jumps as Paul bowed, keeping the
fish hooked up. I cleared the rods away
hoping this would be the one that would
stay stuck. The tarpon did not make
any really long runs so we stayed on the
anchor for awhile until the fish got closer
to the boat. Once the fish was within 20
feet of us it started doing circles around
the boat and I decided to pull the anchor
because I knew if a fish was ever going to

wrap and break off on the rope, it would
happen to Paul.
The 80-pound fish towed the boat for
about another 15 minutes before it got
close enough for me to touch the leader.
I really wanted to get a picture of Paul
and the fish and would have towed it up
on the sandbar, but after another few
minutes the fish broke off. We put the
rod away and headed in, both all smiles.
I don't know who was happier, Paul or
Finally we had done it after five years
and many lost fish. Congratulations, Paul.

get and thanks for sticking with me.

ISLAND SUN- JULY 16, 2010 21


submitted by Shirley Jewell
S since the early part of January, the
eyes of the world have focused
on Haiti and the devastation a
magnitude 7.0 earthquake left on this
tiny island country. Rotary International
was there immediately and distributed
thousands of shelter box tents through-
out the capital city of Port Au Prince
and some surrounding areas. Rotary
clubs around the world had already been
working in Haiti before the earthquake
on projects ranging from sourcing of
clean water, building schools, bring-
ing in hospital supplies and providing
much needed food. There was an even
greater need for these items after the
earthquake and the connections estab-
lished throughout Haiti were helpful for
Rotary to continue efforts and provide
avenues of service beyond the original
scope. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary
Club, led by Chet Sadler, has been
working on a water project in Haiti
for a couple of years now. Last March
the club had established a partnership
with Missionary Enterprises founded
by Harold Hanson of Shell Point and
the Sanibel Community Church. They
had begun a project in Haiti at Haute
St Marc School. The project involved
bringing in urgently needed food (rice
and beans, sometimes the only meal
of the day for St. Marc's students and
school workers); helping to build a sec-

ond story to their existing elementary
school, which will house middle and
high school students; and providing a
water supply (either by digging wells or
providing underground water tank stor-
age) for the school and the surrounding
community. The tie-in for our Rotary
club was providing a source of clean
water. Presently, clean water is car-
ried to the school by donkey in plastic
containers, holding about 20 gallons at
a time. This water is for drinking and
cooking. Toilet facilities are a sepa-
rate issue. Throughout last year, Chet

Chet Sadler (center) at Rotary meeting
explored the feasibility of the Sanibel-
Captiva Rotary Club drilling a well or
building a water pipeline system from
a close-by spring to the school. Neither
option panned out. It was not until a
trip to Haiti after the earthquake that
Chet was able to work out an arrange-
ment with the local water department
to tap into an existing water line down
the hill from the school and pump the
water to the site. Chet worked hard and
long on this project and the water pipe-
line should start flowing soon. Running
water will also bring with it the pos-
sibility of the construction of a separate
restroom facility.

Chet had the architectural drawings
for the new restroom facility at St. Marc
School in hand at last week's meeting.
This would definitely be an improvement
over the one-seater outbuilding toilet now
servicing the near 1,000 students, faculty,
and support staff at the school. This facili-
ty will house separate area restrooms that
include: seven toilets and sinks for girls;
three toilets, urinals and sinks for boys;
and two toilets, sinks and showers for
teachers. The approximate building costs
will be near $40,000; the Sanibel-Rotary

Planning Is Off To
A Roaring Start
The Sanibel Community Association
(SCA) hosted a meeting recently
for a cross-section of island busi-
nesses, not-for-profits and interested
volunteers to talk about the 75th anni-
versary 2012 Shell Fair. The purpose
of the meeting was to see if there was
interest in making this an islands-wide
week of Shell-abration. "The enthusi-
asm and the number of ideas that were
discussed exceeded our expectations,"
said Salli Kirkland, president of the
SCA. "We want to bring the community
together to promote and celebrate our
islands' status as one of the best shelling
locations in the country and in so doing
have an island-wide shell festival, not
just at The Community House, but in
stores, theaters, restaurants and lodging
The Shell Fair and Show is a
major fundraiser for the SCA and its
Shellcrafters, as well as for the Shell Club.
This four-day event takes place the first
week in March every year and brings
people in from all over the country and
abroad. The Shell Fair has its schedule,
but with such a milestone year coming
up in 2012, the organizers Anne Joffe,
Ann Arnoff and Bill Schecker decided
the Shell Fair should be bigger and broad-
er based. This meeting confirmed

their belief that the community agrees.
There are a lot more opportunities for
"shell mania" if the event goes for the
whole week and the attendees discussed
ways their organizations could enhance
the activities by holding other shell events
and creating more fun. Ideas included an
artist competition for designing the logo
to be used in a myriad of different ways;
shell book author readings, shell products
in stores, an historical shell show travel-
ing display, a shell scavenger hunt, a play
with shells as tje theme, special musical
performances, and shelling trips. And the
list just kept growing, from a shell fashion
show to a Shell-abration cocktail.
This was the beginning of a summer
of planning, as the marketing for such an
event needs to be communicated well in
advance to get the national recognition
that will convey the theme; "when you
think shells, think Sanibel and Captiva."
There is a lot of work to be done and
many sub-committees will take specific
segments and bring them to life: retail,
lodging, restaurants, promotion, media,
historical offerings, and special event
coordination. "Join us for Shell-abration
planning and have some fun creating
this most exciting weeklong event," said
SCA event chair Marge Meek. "Contact
The Community House at 472-2155
to volunteer to be part of our ongoing
meetings. We need at least 100 people

Corps Of Engineers Lowers And Then
Raises Lake Okeechobee Releases
After a period of reduced releases from Lake Okeechobee, the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers will increase the flow into the Caloosahatchee Estuary in
Lee County. That's because recent rainfall has raised to lake to unsafe levels.
In accordance with the 2008 Lake Okeechobee Regulation Schedule (2008
LORS), the corp adjusted water releases from Lake Okeechobee beginning at 7 a.m.
on Sunday, July 11. The 12-day release has a target flow to the St. Lucie Estuary of
1,800 cubic feet per second (cfs). The new target flow to the Caloosahatchee Estuary
is 4,000 cfs. as measured at the Moore Haven Lock and Dam (S-77).
The releases are made in pulses that resemble the pattern of runoff resulting from
natural rainfall.
"Over the past 10 days, we delivered reduced releases to the St. Lucie and
Caloosahatchee estuaries 200 cfs and 450 cfs, respectively and according to the
2008 LORS," said Lt. Col. Michael Kinard, Jacksonville District Deputy for South
Florida. "The reduced flows were due to improved evaporation/transpiration during
the month of June, dryer tributary conditions, and predictions of less rainfall, even
though water levels in Lake Okeechobee remained approximately a foot and a half
above the preferred level.
"Recent rainfall over the lake and surrounding basins, however, has raised the
lake level almost six inches in one week. The forecast is for increased precipitation.
These changes have prompted us to increase the releases again to protect the Herbert
Hoover Dike, free-up capacity for more rain and potential tropical storms, and to keep
from having to make larger releases later."
The corps strives to maintain the lake between 12.5 and 15.5 feet. Normally, at
the beginning of the wet season, the lake level is on a downward trend toward the
lower end of the management range. This provides capacity in the lake for precipita-
tion and basin runoff expected during the wet season.
System conditions are closely monitored. At this time, conditions are wet through-
out most of south Florida, and there is no significant storage capacity available in other
areas of the regional system.
For more information on water level and flows data for Lake Okeechobee and
the Central and Southern Florida Project, visit the corps' water management page at

Cattle Barons'
Ball Update
The eighth annual Cattle Barons'
Ball will be held at the Robb &
Stucky Corporate Headquarters,
announced event chairperson Cyndie
Grimes. The American Cancer Society
(ACS) event, one of the most unique
and largest fundraisers in Lee County,
will be held January 22.
"We are excited that Robb & Stucky is
this year's venue," said Grimes. "It's the
ideal size and location for us to saddle up
for the best night of western fun all in the
name of raising money to fight cancer."
Each year top executives and com-
munity leaders unite to support and enjoy
one of the most entertaining, imagina-

tive and rewarding events in Southwest
Florida. Guests don casual western wear,
enjoy top cuisine and rub elbows while
supporting the fight against cancer, the
nation's #1 public health concern. Since
the Cattle Barons' Ball debut in 2004,
nearly $3 million has been raised in sup-
port of the American Cancer Society,
which uses its century of experience and
unwavering commitment to beat cancer
by helping people stay well, get well, find
cures and fight back.
For nearly a century, the American
Cancer Society has fought for every
birthday threatened by all types of cancer
throughout each community. By taking
what they've learned through research
and turned it into what they do, ACS has
contributed to a 15 percent decrease in
the overall cancer death rate between the

early 1990s and 2005. This means about
650,000 cancer deaths were avoided
thus creating the potential for more
birthday celebrations. Overall, 11 million
cancer survivors in America will celebrate
another birthday this year.

Henry Ford's
147th Birthday
The Edison & Ford Winter Estates
will celebrate the 147th birthday
of Henry Ford at the estates on
Friday, July 30 at 10 a.m. The celebra-
tion will include cake and a Sneak Peek
tour of the Ford Estate with Henry Ford.
Admission is free to estates members,
$20 for non-members; $11 for children
age six to 12; and free for children five

"Ford's birthday marks a very impor-
tant day in American history, and we
invite the public to share in the celebra-
tion. Learn about Henry Ford and visit
the beautiful winter homes of one of
America's greatest industrialists," said
Chris Pendleton, estates president and
CEO. "Ford's remarkable history spanned
decades and totally changed our way of
Ford facts:
Henry Ford grew up on a typi-
cal 19th-century farm in Dearborn,
Michigan. At an early age he demonstrat-
ed an interest in mechanics and a dislike
for farm work.
Ford married Clara Bryant in 1888.
He would later refer to Clara as "the
Believer" for her faith in and support of
his ideas.

Thomas Edison and Henry Ford wintered in Fort Myers together for many years

In 1891 Ford became an engineer
for the Edison Illuminating Company
and was soon promoted to chief engi-
neer. This position allowed him time to
experiment with the internal combustion
engine. Ford idolized Thomas Edison and
met him during an 1896 company con-
vention in New York, where Ford relayed
his ideas for the engine. Ford recalled the

importance of Edison's encouragement:
"Out of the clear blue sky the greatest
inventive genius in the world had given
me complete approval."
In 1896, at the age of 33, Ford
completed the Quadricycle, a self-
propelled vehicle with four wire wheels,
which was steered with a tiller and had
two forward speeds. Ford traveled around
Detroit in his "horseless carriage" to the
amazement, as well as disdain, of its
The Ford Motor Company was
incorporated in 1903 with the Model A.
In 1908 Ford introduced the Model T,
realizing his lifelong dream of a vehicle
that was easy to operate and maintain
and able to handle the rough roads of
the era. The Model T quickly became a
huge success, with more than 10,000
sold in 1909.
Ford is considered the father of
modern manufacturing. As the popu-
larity of the Model T escalated, Ford
devised a system that combined division
of labor, standardized and interchange-
able parts, and the assembly line. This
revolutionized automobile production by
reducing the amount of time involved in
manufacturing and consequently lower-
ing production costs. Mass production
was born. By 1913 some 1,000 cars
were produced in a typical eight-hour
By the late teens, Ford was an
American celebrity and the public could
not seem to get enough of him. Ford
came into his office one day and said,
"You know, I think I ought to get a pair
of whiskers. Everybody seems to spot
In 1914 Ford made his first visit
to Fort Myers at the invitation of his
friend Thomas Edison. From there
the two embarked on an Everglades
camping trip. Calling themselves "the
Vagabonds," Ford and Edison, along
with Harvey Firestone and John
Burroughs, would make many more
camping trips throughout the next

15 years. In 1916, Ford purchased his
Fort Myers retreat, The Mangoes, for
$20,000 and enlarged it by adding two
family and staff wings.
Ford was seriously interested in
unifying urban and rural industry. He
encouraged the idea of using agricultural
products for industrial purposes. For
example, Ford experimented with an
automobile trunk made from soybean-
based plastic. He was a partner in the
Edison Botanical Research Lab located
on estates' property.
In the mid-1920s The New York
Times estimated the assets of the Ford
Motor Company at $1.2 billion, or about
$13 billion today. Ford himself drew an
average of about $4.5 million per year
during this decade, or about $50 million
in today's dollars. Said Ford, "I'm in a
peculiar position. There is nothing I want
that I cannot have. But I do not want the
things that money can buy. I want to live
a life, to make the world a little better for
having lived in it."
In 1928 Ford established and
endowed The Edison Institute in
Dearborn, Michigan (now The Henry
Ford Museum & Greenfield Village), an
indoor/outdoor museum created to illus-
trate and preserve the American experi-
ence and celebrate American ingenuity.
In 1929 Ford threw a lavish party in
Dearborn in honor of the 50th anniver-
sary of Edison's invention of the incan-
descent lamp. Ford presented his friend
with a detailed reconstruction of Edison's
Menlo Park and the original 1887 Fort
Myers laboratory at The Edison Institute.
Edison became misty-eyed and remarked
that "the memories of 82 years were
flooding back." Ford told reporters at the
event, "We are ahead of all other coun-
tries today, simply and solely because we
have Mr. Edison."
Ford loved dancing and in the 1920s
began a massive effort to revive old-fash-
ioned dancing. He sponsored a national
tour of dancing master Benjamin Lovett.
Dancing was also an important part of
Ford's social life in Fort Myers.
Henry Ford earned the American
Legion Distinguished Service Medal for
his efforts on behalf of disabled veter-
ans in both World Wars. In 1997, Life
magazine named him one of the 100
People Who Made the Millennium, and
in 2000 Time magazine named him one
of the 100 Most Important People of the
Century. In 2000 Forbes magazine called
him the #1 Industrialist of the Century.
Ford returned to The Mangoes only
sporadically after Thomas Edison's death
in 1931. In 1945 he sold it to Thomas
and Gladys Biggar. In 1988, the City
of Fort Myers purchased Henry Ford's
estate for $1.5 million, restored it to its
historic appearance and opened it to the
public in 1989.
Henry Ford's Fort Myers estate is
open daily and now managed by the
Edison & Ford Winter Estates, Inc., a
non-profit organization.
On July 30, 2007 a statue com-
memorating Henry Ford's achievements
and time in Fort Myers was created by DJ
Wilkins and donated by Orvall McCleary
to the estates.
The estates is open daily from 9 a.m.
to 5:30 p.m. For additional information

Book Review

L largely ignored
S during the
I Iraq conflict,
America's war in
Afghanistan, now
the longest in
United States his-
tory, has leaped
back on the front
page with the firing of Commanding
General Stanley McChrystal and the
policy dispute over the conduct of the
invasion itself.
Reporting on the Afghan war has
been sketchy due to the emphasis on
Iraq, however, Sebastian Junger, prize-
winning author of The Perfect Storm,
spent a year embedded with a front-
line platoon in 2007-08 fighting in the
Kornegal Valley near the Pakistan border.
Junger's book, WAR, is now fourth on
The New York Times hardback best-sell-
er list, and the ranking is well-deserved.
Junger takes a non-judgmental posi-
tion on the war itself, but as a reporter
his objective is simple and ambitious: to
convey what soldiers experience what
war actually feels like.
He quickly bonds with the young
Americans of the Second Platoon and
shares their almost daily series of deadly
fire fights with the ghost-like Taliban
fighters. Junger narrowly escapes death
from sniper fire, and survives a road side
bomb when the blast explodes under the

you'd rather do. The only reason anyone
was alive at Restrepo... was because

Watching jet fighters take off, Junger
writes, "No matter how many times

Lolling On The Beach

Is Not For These Fitness Folks!
by Anne Mitchell
J enna Hoyt and Tim Shevlin of Sanibel Health Club
have taken fitness up yet another notch by offering Sanibel
Beach Retreats, which are residential programs that pro-
vide five to six hours of activities, including one-on-one train-
S ing, group cardio, group classes and physical activities.
Four custom-tailored gourmet meals and one post-workout
protein smoothie are provided each day, and guest speakers give
presentations on nutrition and exercise.
The retreats are held at Shalimar Beach Resort, where
accommodations are available in beachfront and beachview
rooms as well as two-bedroom suites.
Sanibel Health Club offers personal training, nutritional consulting, senior workout
programs, spin bikes, yoga and plates classes and massage therapy.
The club is at 975 Rabbit Road, unit 1A. For more information about the health
club or the Beach Retreats, phone 395-BODY (2639) or e-mail info@sanibelfitnessinc.
Sanibel Sunglass Company opened store Number One in Periwinkle Place
less than two years ago. Already there is a satellite location poolside at South Seas
Island Resort, Captiva. Two more stores are up and running in Myrtle Beach, South
Carolina, and Birmingham, Alabama, and another in Greenville, South Carolina is
set to open in a couple of weeks.
Owners Neil and Birgit Peck's vision is for further expansion. Neil Peck had sold
a successful sunglass retail chain some years ago and later decided to get back in the
business. The Pecks' business plan is "to open killer sunglass stores in the best retail
environments available... primarily in the sunbelt."
Their Sanibel store, in Periwinkle Place, sells all the well-known and popular eye-
wear brands including Oakley, Ray-Ban, Maui Jim, Costa del Mar and Kaenon.
Gordon Tomasch, who works at the Sanibel and Captiva stores, said Sanibel
Sunglass Company's aim is to offer quality glasses in all price points from $9.99 for
polarized lenses for children to as much as $300 for top of the line examples and a
wide range of styles under $100.
The company's motto is Live Outside and it is concerned not just with its clients'
eyes but also with their skin. As a result the stores carry a good selection of men's and
women's hats and a premium brand of sunblock, Tizo2, which includes a tinted, matte
suncream that women love. Tizo2 is geared to people who are allergic to most sun-
blocks. It has significant water and sweat resistant properties.

Swedish author Stieg
These books are
currently at the top of
all best seller lists and
are the publishing sen-

Investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist
(Michael Nyqvist) is hired by a wealthy man
to solve the mystery of a young woman, his
niece, missing for 40 years and presumed
dead. Blomkvist joins forces in his quest with
a brilliant computer hacker Lisbeth Salander
(Noomi Rapace); the multi-pierced and heav-

sents the new feminine ideal; a free-spirited,
androgynous hellian. Her relationship with
Blomkvist is warm but detached; sexual, but
on her terms.
This film is an edge-of-your-seat, fast-
paced thriller; your interest will never flag. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
It has just been released on DVD while still

LaBron James Joins Art Modell

On Sports Hate List In Cleveland
by Ed Frank
O n November 6, 1995, Art Modell, owner of the
Cleveland Browns, announced he was moving his
football team to Baltimore, setting off an outrage in
Cleveland that reverberates still today.
Modell was labeled "the most hated man in Cleveland," a
dubious title that he may finally relinquish to LeBron James.
Now a villain in Cleveland, but a new hero in Miami, James'
decision last week to depart his hometown for South Beach
ranks right up there with other sports moves that are historic.
The debate whether Modell or James is the most hated in
Cleveland will linger for years just as so many other controversial
departures remain bitter to many even decades after the moves took place.
There are those who tell you they stopped watching baseball when the Brooklyn
Dodgers and the New York Giants moved to California half a century ago. That's a
long time not watching baseball.
And what about the 1984 midnight ride of Bob Irsay when he secretly moved
his Baltimore Colts to Indianapolis in the dead of night? Although Baltimore later
got Modell's Cleveland franchise, many to this day argue and complain about Irsay's
"It's one thing he stole our team, it's another that he also stole our name," is a
quote heard so often from Baltimore faithful.
Modell never returned to Cleveland after he made the move even though Cleveland
was awarded an NFL expansion team and a new stadium three years later.


"I still love Cleveland. Nobody could ever take that love away from me," the
85-year-old Modell said shortly after LaBron disclosed on his television spectacular that
he was ditching the Cavaliers for the Miami Heat.
No question that LaBron teaming with Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade will make
the Heat the team to beat in the NBA Eastern Division. But you also can understand
the pain in rust-belt Cleveland, a city that has waited longer than any other with three
major sports franchises to win a title.
The last time a Cleveland professional team won a title was 1964 when the
Cleveland Browns won the NFL championship pre-Super Bowl.
James' former Cavaliers have never won an NBA title and it has been 62 years
since the Cleveland Indians won the World Series.
Although Modell has never returned to Cleveland, James will come back twice next
season when the Heat faces the Cavaliers.
You can bet he'll have plenty of security around him.
Want a Chance to Play in Next Year's Ace Group Classic Pro-Am?
Octagon Golf, the corporation that runs the annual Ace Group Classic golf tourna-
ment each February, recently announced a new series of golf tournaments in our area
with one lucky participant winning a playing spot in the official Pro-Am.
Called the Seminole Casino Golf Series, the tournaments are open to all amateur
golfers and will take place over six consecutive months at various golf courses in
Southwest Florida. The dates are July 24 through December 4.
The Seminole Casino and Lumpy's Golf are co-sponsors.
For each tournament attended, golfers will receive an entry into a year-end draw-
ing for a playing spot in next February's Pro-Am and a $2,500 shopping spree at
Lumpy's or a $2,500 Seminole Casino package.
Further information on the golf series is available at
Miracle Begin Eight-Game Home Stand Sunday
The Fort Myers Miracle baseball team returns home to Hammond Stadium Sunday
to begin an eight-game home stand against Lakeland and Brevard County.
The Miracle began the week with a second-half season record of 6-10, 4-1/2
games behind first-place St. Lucie in the Florida State League South Division. The first
pitch Sunday is 4:05 p.m.
Former Miracle Alex Casilla, an infielder for the Minnesota Twins, played with his
former club earlier this week in a rehab assignment. Casilla hit .331 in 78 games with
the Miracle in 2006.4

PGA Tips
Hybrids Or
Rescue Clubs
by Matt Oakley,
PGA Golf
&| has changed
Sf the game
forever. Long irons
are a thing of the
past. Even the
PGA Tour players
are now playing
hybrids and have
retired the longer irons.
A hybrid or "rescue club" is a combi-
nation of a long iron and a fairway wood.
It looks a lot like the old driving irons.
Here are a few tips on how to hit
these clubs and make longer shots as
easy as a wedge shot:
1. Place the ball in the front of the
stance like your driver or fairway woods.
The ball should be placed in the stance
inside of the left heel.

The next trip is on Tuesday, July 20.
Leave the center at 10:30 a.m. to dine at

2. Place the weight evenly in your
stance at address. Not too much weight
on the left or right side of the body but
right in the middle. Be comfortable at
3. Use a sweeping strike to hit the
ball. Make practice swings feeling the club
brush the grass at your left heel, but not
making a big divot. Where I see the big-
gest trouble with these shots by amateurs
is that they tend to not hit any ground
at all and hit a bladed, low, short shot. If
you brush the ground a little the ball will
go higher and further.
4. Swing through to a nice finish
after the strike. Keep your swing moving
through to a full finish; don't quit after
you hit it.0

Rotary District #6960 and matched again
to $20,000, and finally matched at our
national level to a total of $40,000. This
sounds a little convoluted but it works.
One of the other reasons Chet went
down to Haiti after the earthquake was
that while working on this water project
and waiting for a resolution regarding
the project, the club pledged to provide
a number of beans and rice meal pack-
ages, along with building materials for
St. Marc School. The container was
stalled on the docks and had not been
delivered before the earthquake. They
needed to be released. This shipping
container also contained building supplies
for the construction of a second-story
classroom addition at St. Marc to be built
by the Sanibel Community Church and
Missionary Enterprises. Wearing a couple
of hats, the Rotary hat and the Sanibel
Community Church Hat, Chet accom-
plished quite a bit while in Haiti. He met
with government officials, local water
departments, St. Marc Rotary Club, and
a number of other business professionals
while on the island.
The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary has pro-
vided $1,000 of support for Beans and
Rice in Haiti for St. Marc, $3,000 for
10,000 meals for Real Hope for Haiti,
50 containers of sardines, and $1,800
for shipping container facilitation.
Diseases will continue without sanitation
and malnutrition will persist without reli-
able food supplies and clean water. The
people of Haiti are important to Rotary
and our club is doing a small part in
improving the living conditions in this tiny
island not too far from home.
The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club
meets at 7 a.m. Friday mornings at
Beachview Steakhouse.0

Wildlife officials release some of the 11 northern gannets into the Gulf of Mexico off

Because Sanibel Island lies well outside the area that will likely be affected by oil-spill
impact (experts predict a one percent likelihood of impact) and is similar in environ-
ment to the birds' homelands along the Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi coast, and
within the species' home range, it made an ideal release spot.
The birds had been rescued and treated by various agencies in the Gulf Coast
states. They were in rehabilitation for 10 to 14 days, according to Dr. Powers.
Pelicans have among the best recovery rates among birds impacted by oil, she
added. On Sanibel, the pelicans were released at water's edge following the release of
the gannets directly into the water.
A crowd of media, refuge staff, and beach-goers gathered to applaud their flawless
Rehabilitation center staff banded the birds' legs with alpha-numeric red bands, as
well as traditional aluminum bands. The red bands allow birdwatchers to more easily
identify the birds and the public is requested to help in reporting any sightings to the
refuge or at 800-327-BAND.
"We've only released immature birds up to this point, and they often return to near
the vicinity they came from," said Dr. Powers. "We don't know what the adults will
do. "

Architects Hired
Besides the obvious physical needs of
the building due to age and layout, bring-
ing the house up to the today's needs
in terms of functionality is paramount.
The old Florida style of the historic north
room will be the theme of the remodel,
coupled with providing ease of use in an
up-to date setting.
The money raised from Dancing with
the Islands' Stars was earmarked for this
project. "We promised the community
that 'Dancing' would provide the funding

for hiring an architect and making this a
summer of planning," said Marge Meek,
vice president and Event Chair. "We are
underway through the hiring of Ron and
his group and it is just the beginning. As
the master plan is being developed, we
ask the community for its input and sup-
port. It is your Community House and
there is a much work to be done and
money to be raised. Come join us!"

Power Colors
by Cindy Malszycki
ow can
as simple as
color make such a
strong statement
about you? We
may never know
the answer to that
question because
it's a factor of
human emotion,
a subject that has been under scrutiny
since the dawn of time. However, we do
know that certain colors have definite
positive and negative impacts, and we
should use them to our benefit in our
interior decorating.
Think of the colors in your home as
a complement to your own coloring and
personality. The latest, trendy colors are
great, but unless you really love them,
beware, because you will be living with
them long after their fashionable day is
The Psychology of Color
The following analysis is a fun way to
look at color. Here is just a sampling of
basic colors to give you an idea of color
Blue seems to have a calming effect,
symbolizing still waters and clear skies.
Interestingly, those who like blue tend to
display good judgment and strong execu-
tive ability.
Green expresses constant self-aware-
ness and environmental consciousness.

If you love green, you may be someone
who is persistent in the face of opposi-
Red is results-oriented, a vital force.
This color represents excitement and cha-
risma, and it speeds up the pulse!
Yellow manifests spontaneity. Fans of
this sunny shade like action and have a
positive outlook on life.
Violet tends to appeal to people who
place high value on intuitive and sensitive
understanding. Those who enjoy violet
are usually artistic and sometimes mysti-
Isn't it interesting how color makes
such a statement without saying a word?
It's almost mysterious how it works, and
yet so much fun! Before choosing your
favorite color, charging ahead with an
expensive room makeover, share your
preferences with the family and with an
interior decorating professional. Your out-
come should be a pleasing combination
of colors that you and your family can
enjoy for many years to come.
In our next article, we will discuss the
newest color trends for the coming year,
as determined by the Color Marketing
Group, a national organization that fore-
casts colors for industries as diverse as
fashion, autos, home decor, appliances
and textiles.

FCAT Scores
Concern District
ince the release of the 2010
Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test (FCAT) test
scores, Lee County Public Schools offi-
cials have been studying the data to see
how our students performed. As part of
that review, staff began to uncover some
anomalies when it came to learning
gains, especially in the area of reading.
Staff then began to talk with other
districts across Florida and discovered
they identified similar irregularities
when reviewing their FCAT results. On
Monday, July 11, the Florida Association
of District School Superintendents
(FADSS) brought together superinten-
dents from across the state via telephone
conference to discuss this as it was appar-
ent similar anomalies were being discov-
ered statewide.
"My staff and I have been talking with
districts across Florida and we all have
found some scoring inconsistencies," said
Dr. James Browder, superintendent of
schools. "We continue to disaggregate the
data to determine the level of these scor-
ing abnormalities."
Each year when the FCAT results
are released there are "normal" fluctua-
tions in student performance. This year,
however, those fluctuations appear to be
beyond the normal year-to-year differ-
These irregularities could have seri-
ous consequences when it comes to the
grades earned by schools. The state's

ISLAND SUN JULY 16, 2010 47
school performance grading system
includes student learning gains in reading
and math, and these gains make up 50
percent of the total points earned on a
school's grade. If these learning gains are
reflected incorrectly, a school would earn
the wrong grade (i.e. lower than it should
While Lee County Public Schools
continues to review the FCAT results, Dr.
Browder, along with FADSS, is request-
ing that the Florida Commissioner Eric
Smith review the results as well in order
to positively determine what may or may
not have transpired in the grading of this
year's tests.0

Everyone wants a kitten and though
I'm a year old I'm just a kitten myself.

ful, spunky, snuggly and affectionate.
Adoption fee: $50 .
