Dr. PJ Resigns
by Brian Johnson
linic Director and Veterinarian Dr.
PJ Deitschel has resigned from
CROW. This past Sunday, July 18
was her last day at the wildlife hospital.
Dr. PJ is headed to Pensacola, where
she will assist with the rehabilitation of
wildlife impacted by the BP oil slick.
"It is with sadness I've resigned my
position as clinic director/staff veterinarian
at Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife,"
said Dr. PJ. "CROW has been my passion
for 12 years and it will always hold a very
special place in my heart. It's been a joy
and honor to serve our wildlife patients
and work with such a truly amazing group
of people.
"I'm grateful my skills and passion are
needed with the gulf oil spill wildlife emer-
gency response team and look forward to
this opportunity to advocate for animals in
a different capacity.
"My heartfelt thanks to this community
for your wonderful support and kind words
throughout the years."
Dr. PJ first came to CROW in March,
1996 as a senior vet student. She became
the head veterinarian in November, 1998.

Maxwell Produces
Map To Council
by Anne Mitchell
Resident Steve Maxwell dropped a bomb-
shell at the Sanibel City Council meeting
on Tuesday when he produced copies
of a city map that officials including the city
attorney have maintained don't exist for the
past eight years.
Maxwell, who lives on Raintree Place, off
Island Inn Road, has been fighting the city since
1992 claiming that Raintree Place was to be an
extended private roadway easement connecting
to Twin Palms. City Attorney Ken Cuyler has
responded that no such road was ever intended,
nor was there any documentation showing it did.
Maxwell says in a letter to the mayor and
council he believes Ken Pfalzer, former deputy
planning director, and Cuyler "may have made
up a cul-de-sac in order to get away from the
legal allegation against the city... to prevent the

city from being sued by the Gombergs."
The Gombergs and neighbors the Rothschilds
were caused "tens of thousands of dollars worth
of legal costs" in trying to resolve the property
issues, Maxwell said. "The city allowed a house
to be built in violation of the land use plan and
development codes and without adequate turn-
Thomas Kontinos, who has worked in Lee
County law enforcement for 27 years and in the
state attorney's office for 10 years, told council
he investigated allegations including perjury and
misconduct by a city official over the roadway
"The state attorney's office declined to prose-
cute Mr. Maxwell," he said, for lack of evidence.
"That document could have been critical,"
remarked Councilman Peter Pappas.
Maxwell said he discovered the map while
researching a drainage issue in his neighbor-
hood. It was in a pile of maps at the public
works department and he obtained copies that
show the city seal and the date July 9, 1986.
"This was a document request in 2004,"
Kontinos said, "by me during my investigation."

Maxwell Produces
'Non-Existent' Map
There were testy exchanges between
Maxwell and Cuyler with Maxwell insist-
ing, "Admit you made a mistake." Cuyler
referred to "Mr. Maxwell's typical sand-
bagging" and added, "He has not shown
anything to me. He brings it up at a pub-
lic meeting."
Maxwell replied, "Why would I go to
him. He has belittled and embarrassed
me." He said the city had implied in its
legal defense that he had a vendetta."
Mayor Kevin Ruane cut off the
exchange saying, "We are not going to

engage in this," and adding, We will cer-
tainly respond to it."
Later in the meeting, Cuyler apolo-
gized for losing his temper, adding, "Mr.
Maxwell has spent eight years getting
under my skin."
Council members appeared mostly
unprepared for the revelation and made
few comments. However, Vice Mayor
Mick Denham said the Gombergs were
friends of his and that they are the big-
gest victims of this." He added, "They
have suffered immeasurably through no
fault of their own."
As for Maxwell, he said he wants the
city council to investigate and hold those
staff members accountable.

anibel Planning Director Jim Jordan
was recognized by the city council
on Tuesday for 25 years of service.
He began as a planning technician, was
promoted to a planner in 1989 and
became planning director in June 2009.
Also, Crystal Mansell, executive assistant
to the city manager, was named employee
of the quarter by co-workers and was
handed a check by Mayor Kevin Ruane.
The council also thanked Sharon and
Judy Michie and Friends of the July 4th Jim Jordan Crystal Mansell

Mayor Predicts
Another Rough
Fiscal Year
by Anne Mitchell
aring a "double-dip recession
related to real estate prices,"
Sanibel Mayor Kevin Ruane said
Tuesday he wants the city to "proceed
with caution and prudence" in preparing
the 2010-11 budget.
Ruane, who is looked on as the
council's finance guru, said he believes
property values will show an even greater
decrease than in the past three years,
greater than seven percent. Values fell
19.6 percent in the past two years.
In this first step of the annual budget
process, council set a tentative millage
rate of 2.1561, the same as last year,
which will generate about $700,000 less
because of reduced property values and
other factors. In future meetings, council
can reduce but not increase that millage
rate. The rolled back rate, which would
generate the same amount as last year, is
City Manager Judie Zimomra said
reserves are important because while the
threat from the Deep Horizon oil spill is
low, the potential for algae on the beach-
es from increased releases from Lake
Okeechobee is higher. She said reserves
total $6.2 million, allowing the city to be
flexible in responding to any situation,
including a hurricane.
"We have worked to pay down debt
and accelerate debt payments," Zimomra
said. "We continue to downsize (staff)
through attrition," she added. The city

had 142 employees in 2007 and has
122 today.
She recommends "no new employees
and no new levels of service."
David Bath, resident, said, "The most
critical issue is salaries, staffing and pen-
sion plans."
The first budget hearing is scheduled
for 10 a.m. on Saturday, September
11 at 10 a.m. and the final hearing will
take place at 5:01 p.m. on Tuesday,

Kiwanis on the green at Dunes Golf & Tennis Club

Kiwanians Hear About Oil Spill Plan
submitted by Eric Pfeifer
Kiwanis was pleased to have Major Michael Murray from the Sanibel Police
Department speak at Tuesday's breakfast meeting. The major was at The
Dunes to update us on the Deepwater Horizon oil spill status. He is in charge
of the training for the potential cleanup should the oil ever arrive on our beaches.
While Lee County has enough oil boom available to surround Sanibel, the primary
objective would be to protect the estuaries, mangroves and canals first.
More than 190 people from Sanibel and Captiva have volunteered for the train-
ing, and many others said they would be willing to help. Dick Muench from the CNN
Hurricane Charley division said he would just help anyway without training from city
officials. Major Murray was quick to reprimand our Sergeant at Arms and reminded
him that the oil and dispersants are hazardous materials. Steve Brown mentioned he
has taken only half of the training course and will be pulling an all-nighter cramming
for the second half.

JFK's Pilot Picked Sanibel Over Hawaii
By Barbara Joy Cooley, President and
Mike Gillespie,Vice President, Committee of the Islands

T he Marine aviator
who had served
during WWII,
Korea, and Vietnam -
and who once piloted
JFK's helicopter took
one look at Sanibel and
said, "Here's home."
That pilot was Colonel
Edwin Reed.
He and his wife, Jean -
a Navy flight nurse had
both been on active duty
during the Korean War.
They had met in Japan
and got married in Hawaii
after a short courtship.
They fell in love with it
and went back many times
during their marriage.
But something would
beckon them to Sanibel.
By 1970, the Reeds
started planning for life
after the Marines and
began the search for a
place to live. Their daugh-
ter, retired Navy Captain
Nori Ann Reed, lives on
Sanibel today. Intrigued by
what we had heard of this

extraordinary military family, we contacted Nori Ann and asked her to tell us more -
about her family, their love of Sanibel, their service to their country...and to our island
as well.
How, we asked Nori Ann, did your folks find Sanibel?
"Mom and Dad," she said, "set out in a little Cessna and went island hopping down
the east coast, looking for someplace that captured the 'feel' of their beloved Hawaiian
islands but wasn't so far from both their families. They stopped off in lots of places,
including the Keys, but no place even came close.
"Then," she continued, "on their return to Quantico, Virginia, where Dad was
stationed, they came via Fort Myers, because very close friends lived in Cape Coral.

A thank-you note from Jacqueline Kennedy to Col. Edwin Reed

During the visit, Mom and Dad were told, 'you have to see Sanibel.' And like so many
others, they fell in love with it. Though neither of them was impulsive, they bought
a Sunset South condominium essentially that day. They came home from their trip,
bubbling over with enthusiasm to my brother Rob and me about the wonderful place
they had discovered. After that, even their favorite island Kauai took second place to
We asked Nori Ann for some background on her dad and his military service
before he arrived here.
From a farm in west Texas
"He was raised on a farm in west Texas," she said, "where his father was essential-
ly a sharecropper for my Dad's maternal grandmother (who literally sat at their kitchen
table when the cotton crop came in and was given her 51 percent before any other
bills were paid).
"Dad was very tall for his time," she continued, "almost 6'5", and was given an
athletic scholarship to college. He planned to be a football and basketball coach, but
like so many of his generation, WWII changed all that.
"In 1942, his entire basketball team went down to the Marine recruiter and signed

up. Since they had some college and were
athletic, the recruiter asked if they were willing
to become officers and pilots for the Marine
Corps. Despite being mostly Texas farm boys
who had never been in a plane, all of them
-said OK. They all had the attitude of 'whatever
needs doin', they'd do it.' Thus began Dad's
lifelong love of flying and his 30 plus year
career in the Marine Corps."
And what, we asked, did that career
"He did great things in the Marine Corps,"
Nori replied, "at one point having qualified to
S fly every type of aircraft in the Marine Corps
inventory. One of the highlights of his career
was being President Kennedy's pilot in the
Marine One helicopter. In the famous film clip
of President Kennedy reaching down to stop
the toddler John-John from running out to
Sthe helicopter, I never watch the Kennedys I
S always try to catch a glimpse of my Dad looking
back at the scene from the helicopter window."
When, we asked, did your parents move
Edwin Reed after he retired to Sanibel full time?
"During his Marine Corps physical in 1972,"
Nori told us, "Dad was discovered to have a brain tumor. Later on, we would find
out it was due to Agent Orange from his time in Vietnam, but at the time, 'why'
didn't matter. Dad was in the fight of his life and spent five months in Bethesda Naval
Hospital. Upon his release from the hospital, he was also retired from the Marine
Corps, and we (Mom, Dad, and I) headed for Sanibel. While Dad certainly was 'bet-
ter' and would be around for two more decades, from then on our family had almost
a sense of being on borrowed time, and where else would we spend it with joy except
on Sanibel?
Walking the beach at sunset
"Mom and Dad loved to walk the beach at sunset, and I can still see them in my
mind's eye, ambling down the beach, my very quiet, tall Dad nodding at my tiny-in-
comparison (5'2") Mom's conversation as the day slowly came to an end."
We knew that Colonel Reed had joined the Committee of the Islands and
was elected chairman in 1976, just one year after its founding.
What was it, we asked Nori Ann, that attracted him to this new organization?
"To Dad," she replied, "the Committee of the Islands seemed to be the right thing
to do. I go back to the same attitude he exhibited when he joined the Marines. A job
needed doing, and like so many others on
S-he set out to do it.

didn't have enough voters to sway the Lee County Commission from seeking more
and more revenue from bigger and bigger projects -- even thought it threatened to
destroy the very reasons why people came to Sanibel in the first place.
Coming together for Sanibel
"Dad didn't believe in 'no growth,' Nori continued, "but he believed that reasonable
people could reach agreement on what was proper and in keeping with the Sanibel
spirit. That's what he thought the Committee of the Islands could be about, reasonable
people coming together for the good of Sanibel, despite whatever other political views
they held."
We asked Nori Ann, "What else do you think people who love our island
would be interested in knowing about your dad?"
"That he never stopped loving Sanibel," she replied. "He has been gone 16 years
and spent nearly the last two years of his life in a Cape Coral nursing home, a victim
of the side effects from the tumor and with many cognitive functions gone. But no
matter how confused he was, he never stopped wanting to come home and walk that
beach one more time. And Mom, at 86, still watches the sunset on Sanibel and misses
him. Me, too."
We're glad this Marine pilot and his family chose to land on Sanibel. We are deeply
grateful to them for their service to our country... and to our island.

I know, I had a close encounter of my
own with the possibility of ovarian cancer.
There is no screening test for this cancer.
These chronic symptoms are a call to
action, do not ignore them. You are not
too busy to take care of yourself. Cancers
affect the whole family; you may be the
physical cancer host but you need to rely
on your family and friends more than
ever on this journey toward a healthy
future. Take care of yourself.

new cases, 21,880; deaths, 13,850.
While Farwell was going through
her chemo sessions and treatment for
Ovarian Cancer, she continued creating a
plethora of brilliant art pieces to express
her feelings throughout this ordeal. Last
year these pieces were shown at a solo
exhibit in BIG ARTS Founders Gallery

attention to ovarian cancer awareness.

Turtle Tracks
The Sanibel-Captiva Conservation
Foundation is sponsoring Turtle
Tracks at the Nature Center at
9 a.m. on Thursdays. This interpretive
program delves into the life cycle of the
sea turtles that nest on the beaches.
Participants start at the turtle exhibit and
marine touch tank to learn about the life
cycle of the loggerhead and then go to a
beach site to discuss their nesting habitat
and other fascinating marine life.
Cost for this program is $5 for adults
and free for children; a beach parking fee
of $2 per car is necessary at the beach site.
The Sanibel-Captiva Conservation

Captiva Cruises And SCCF Team Up To Ensure No Child Is Left Ashore
by Marc DiBenedetto, 'i

Sanibel Harbour Marriott Hotel at Punta

Only $25 ($15 for a child) can get you
an afternoon cruise aboard where you can
see the beautiful shores and wildlife from a
new and unique perspective. Your captain
and tour guide will have extensive knowl-
edge of the area and wildlife due to their
70 hours training and classes before their
first tours. The tour begins and ends at the
Sanibel Harbour Resort and you are taken
under the Sanibel bridge, out towards the
Sanibel Lighthouse, over to Pine Island
and the "Ding" Darling National Wildlife
Refuge, then past Picnic Island and back in
to the resort.
Dolphins, wild birds, and other wildlife Above: Rich.
are abundant throughout the cruise making
the trip a very enjoyable experience.
Diane Etter of the Captiva Cruises emphasized that
the cruises were not only great for tourists but for local
Floridians as well. The water is peaceful, beautiful, and
of course "everybody loves dolphins," Etter said.
Captiva Cruises has been running for 25 years and
added trips from the Sanibel Harbour Marriott last
October. But perhaps their most significant passengers
of all came on Friday, July 9.
That is when Richard Finkel, environmental educator
with Captiva Cruises, took 40 Brightest Horizons stu-
dents on a special private early morning cruise.

Kevin Smith, took the kids on a shoreline discovery
cruise and even made a stop at Picnic Island where the
children were able to use hand-held seining nets and
learn about the ecology of the area. Many of the stu-
dents were able to see live shrimp, crabs, and sea stars
amongst other sea creatures for the first time and had
great things to say about the trip.

Load Up On
Pinfish For A
Great Day Fishing
by Capt. Matt
.i "infish are the
P universal sum-
for our area and
That's what the fish
are eating right
now. All our game-
Z... fish and various
other species can
be caught using
pinfish. A live well
full of pinfish is pretty easy to come by
right now if you know how and where
to look.
Depending on your timeframe and
how many you need there are multiple
ways to catch them. Cast netting is prob-
ably the most popular method but hook
and line and bait traps all work too.
My favorite way of filling up the
livewell with pinfish and shiners is chum-
ming and throwing a cast net. When I
throw for bait I prefer to anchor up and

chum. Chumming schools the bait up
and means a lot less throws than simply
drifting and throwing the cast net. Grass
flats and edges of grass flats in three to
five feet of water are the places to try.
Moving tide helps too as this will disperse
the chum out from the boat and draw the
bait in.
Everyone has their favorite baitfish
chum recipe which can be anything from
canned cat food to jack mackerel mixed
with bread, grits, oats, etc. For ease of
use I buy salt water fish food which is a
dry mix and can be bought at most bait
and feed stores. Bait stores generally have
it broken down into smaller packages
while feed stores sell it by the 50-pound
bag. I mix a pound or two of the dry mix
with salt water until it's a thick paste-like
consistency. A chum spoon works well
for this as I'm not into putting my hands
and fingers into the mix. I like to use a
wooden sushi rice spoon for chumming.
They are cheap and float, just in case you
drop it over the side of the boat. If you
want to beef up this mixture you can add
menhaden oil but I find you don't really
need it.
I like to anchor up from the bow and
then powerpole down from the stern.
This stops the boat swinging around on
the anchor and keeps you right on your

the chance of someone else pulling it up
and stealing it or having it run over by
a boat and lost forever. After losing two
of my three traps to either thieves or
propellers, I quit using them. These bait
traps caught a great assortment of bait
including crabs, grunts and pinfish.
Hook and line fishing for pinfish is
quick and easy once you get them feed-
ing. When I'm fishing a tournament I
prefer to catch my pinfish a day or two
ahead using this method. The baits don't
get as beaten up as they do when caught
in a cast net and just plain live longer. I
like to anchor up and tie a chum block
off the back of the boat. This really gets
the pinfish fired up. I like to use a Sabuki
rig on a light spinning rod with a lead
weight on the bottom. The best bait to
use on the 6 hook Sabuki rig is cut up
squid legs. The squid legs are very tough
and stay on the hook well which saves
time on re-baiting hooks. A dehooker
works great for this as you simply grab
the line above the rig, put the dehooker
on the hook and shake the baits off into
the live well. This way the baits have
never been touched. Once the pinfish
are feeding well you can catch three or
four at a time and not even dirty the boat
with a cast net. When catching lots of
pinfish hook and line I generally have two
people working the rods while I work the
Spend some time catching bait before
heading out. No matter how you choose
to get your pinfish, a full livewell generally
makes for a great day of fishing. Whether
you're after tarpon, snook, redfish, trout
or grouper, right now pinfish are the bait
everything is eating.

redfish this week. Clark only gets
to fish a few hours a week but consis-

tently slays all fish. Last week he took a

The redfish are on and the action is

Snowy Plover
Nesting Update
There was a new nest this week,
so the snowies are still nesting.
As of Friday, July 16, there are
two active nests: #14 and a new one,
Nest #15. Both have two eggs. There
are five fledglings. All the nests are on
Sanibel's east end. At this point in the
season, it's getting hard to tell the juve-
nile birds apart from the adults. Some
of the banded Sanibel plovers have been
spotted on Cayo Costa as well as a few
other un-banded plovers that are likely
from Sanibel.
Snowy plovers nest on the beach
and the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation
Foundation (SCCF) coordinates the moni-
toring of nesting on Sanibel. Protective
exclosures are staked around nests. 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 nest-
ing season runs through August, and they
can nest two or three times in one sea-
son. For more information, visit http://

Water Dropwort

Water dropwort, a member of the carrot family, is larval host plant for the eastern black
swallowtail butterfly photos by Gerri Reaves
by Gerri Reaves
W after dropwort (Oxypolis filiformis) is a native perennial that blooms all
Its natural habitat is freshwater wetlands, but it commonly beautifies urban
marsh-like areas such as ditches and swales.
Butterfly gardeners will want to include this easy-care plant in the landscape
because it's the larval host plant for the eastern black swallowtail butterfly. Use it in a
wet area or a natural garden.
This member of the carrot family is related to celery, parsley, dill, and fennel.
Also known as water cowbane, it grows in full sun, reaching two to five feet tall and
spreading by seed.
The lacey white flower clusters can be several inches across, although the flowers
themselves are only about one-eighth of an inch in diameter.
All of the individual flower stems arise from the same point, forming an umbrella-
like, sparsely branched structure.
The stems are hollow and the leaves long and linear. The Latin name filiformis
means "threadlike" and refers to the filament-like phyllodes, or enlarged leaf blades
ranging from four inches up to a couple of feet long.

On Mason Corbin Court in Fort Myers, water dropwort stand among the purple flowers of
pickerelweed, another freshwater wildflower
If water dropwort picks your landscape as a home, think twice before mowing it
It will reward you with "flower umbrellas" and give the butterflies an improved
chance of survival.

Roseate Spoonbill, Snowy Egret
| I by Brian Johnson

OTn the morning
of July 14 visi-
tors on the free
birding tram winding
through the "Ding"
Darling National Wildlife
Refuge spotted a rose-
Sate spoonbill and snowy
egret tied together by
fishing line, a potentially
fatal arrangement.
They notified "Ding"
Darling, and law enforce-
ment officer Jim Mathissen
contacted refuge ranger
Becky Wolff.
It was near lunchtime
and she was able to quickly
assemble a group of refuge
staff and student interns.
They went out to the tower
on Wildlife Drive.
"The birds were on the
sandbar on the other side
of the culvert," said Wolff.
"They were pretty well
exhausted. As soon as we
got there we saw the snowy
drag the spoonbill, whose
legs were wrapped up in
line, under the water. It was -

leg" and there were "superficial abrasions
and a fair amount of swelling below the
hock," said Dr. PJ.
The line came off with relative ease,
and the bird was soon able to stand with
only mild lameness.
The egret was a tougher case. Dr.
PJ put the white bird under anesthesia
in order to accomplish the tricky job of
extricating the hook from the neck. It
took about 10 minutes to pry the hook
forward, cut off the barb, and slide it out.
Both birds were given antioxidants and
secondary pain medication.
Dr. PJ expected a quick turnaround
for both patients, and that's what trans-
"The next morning I came in at 7
a.m. and the birds were bouncing off the
walls, not wanting to be in captivity," said
Dr. PJ. "All the swelling had resolved in
the roseate's leg. Not wanting them to
cause damage to themselves, we notified
Becky for an immediate release."
Back at the refuge, the egret darted
out of the carrier to freedom while the
spoonbill walked about before rejoining
other spoonbills in the refuge waters.

times. To add to the excitement and drama Steve is dancing 'full out' with torn knee
ligaments and will require surgery upon our return.
"I am counting on him to continue to coach me from a sitting position until he's

These locations along with the original

for the art league.
Outdoor paint-outs are always a
favorite among the participating artists,
members and guests alike. Other meeting
places include Bowman's Beach, Blind

Tourists enjoy observing the artists cre-
ate extraordinary interpretations of local
scenes. Seasonally, each Thursday morn-
ing the artists meet at a different island
location to paint and then gather for
lunch and a critique. The variety of indi-
vidual styles fascinates everyone at these

paintings are shown in local galleries
throughout the year and are favored by
viewers who wish to purchase a little of
the islands to take back North.

Library Adds Mango Languages
S anibel Public Library now offers the Mango Languages online language-learn-
ing system to its patrons.
Mango is free for all library patrons and offers a fast and convenient solution
for language-learning needs. Each lesson combines real life situations and audio from
native speakers with simple, clear instructions. The courses are presented with an
appreciation for cultural nuance and real-world application that integrates components
of vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar and culture. Users learn actual conversation,
breaking down complex conversational elements within an audio-visual framework that
allows the user to draw important connections between pieces of information they
have already learned.
Mango is available in two versions: Mango Complete, a 100-lesson course designed
to provide a deep understanding of a language and its culture. It is available in nine
foreign language and three English as a Second Language (ESL) courses; and Mango
Basic, which teaches everyday greetings, gratitudes, goodbyes and helpful phrases in a
short period of time and is designed to appeal to a beginner in a new language. This
basic course, which requires only two to five hours to complete, is currently available in
22 foreign languages and 15 ESL courses.

Book Review

The Last Stand
by Max
T wo years
ago I prom-
ised myself
not to read any
more books about
General George
Armstrong Custer's
last stand on the
Litle Bighorn River
in Montana where
268 troopers of the Seventh Cavalry
died on June 25, 1876 fighting several
thousand Sioux and Cheyenne led by
Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse.
Having had just finished James
Donovan's magnificent book published
in 2008, A Terrible Glory: Custer
And The Little Bighorn: The Last
Great Battle Of The American West, it
appeared certain that the final word had
been written on the 134-year-old battle
that rocked the nation on the eve of the
Centennial and has reverberated down
through history until this present day.
However, I was mistaken. A new book
entitled The Last Stand, Custer, Sitting
Bull, And The Battle Of The Little
Bighorn, has been published this sum-
mer and offers fresh material on a battle
where there were no survivors of Custer's
battalion except for a warhorse named
Comanche ridden by slain Captain Myles
Keogh. Comanche, riddled by seven
bullets and arrows, was found sitting on

his back haunches, near death, on Last
Stand Hill.
Daniel Philbrick, author of The Last
Stand, has uncovered new information
gleaned from oral and written accounts
by the Indian warriors on the battlefield,
and long-ignored research by contempo-
rary historians, and, most importantly,
eye-witness narratives by Seventh Cavalry
troopers from surviving battalions.
Nobody will ever know for sure what
went through Custer's mind that after-
noon when he decided to attack a huge
Indian village stretching for miles and
swarming with several thousand Sioux

and Cheyene warriors, well-armed and
determined not to be driven to a reserva-
tion or give up their hunting ground.
After a sparkling Civil War record
as the Union's youngest general at 24,
Custer became a relentless and ruthless
Indian killer as the frontier moved West.
In My Life On The Plains, published
two years before the battle of the Little
Bighorn, he expressed his sympathies for
the so-called hostiles such as Sitting Bull.
Custer wrote: "If I were an Indian,
I often think I would greatly prefer to
cast my lot among those of my people
adhered to the free open plains rather
than submit to the confined limits of a
reservation, there to be the recipient of
the blessed benefits of civilization, with its
vices thrown in without stint or measure.
After the Battle of the Little Bighorn,
Sitting Bull, the Sioux war chieftain and
medicine man, surrounded by three U.S.
Army columns, escaped to Canada. He
returned to American soil and surren-
dered in 1881. Confined to the Standing
Rock Agency in Dakota Territory, Sitting
Bull was shot and killed in 1890 by Sioux
reservation police.
Sitting Bull's great-grandson, Ernie
LaPointe, carried on the Sioux warrior
tradition with service in Vietnam where
he was wounded fighting with the 101st
Airborne Division.

Mango Languages
"We are thrilled to add Mango for
our library users," said Candy Heise,
reference librarian. "Some people need
to learn a second language for business
or travel reasons. Others just want to
because they think it would be interest-
ing. No matter the reason, learning the
language should be fun. With Mango, it
definitely is."

Interviewed on July 8, 2009, during a
visit to the Black Hills of South Dakota,
the Sioux sacred land which was the
source of great contention between the
tribe and gold miners, LaPointe spoke of
his great-grandfather and the Battle of the
Little Bighorn:
"Historians are always saying we are a
defeated people, but slaughtering the buf-
falo, disarming and massacring old men,
women, and children like they did at
Wounded Knee doesn't constitute victory.
After all these years, after everything
that's happened, we still have the colors
we won at the Little Bighorn, and that
makes us strong."
"I was told through ceremony that
what the Americans have done will come
back to them four times. This is why I
ask the creator to have pity on them. It
doesn't matter what they have done. I do
not wish what is coming from the future
on anyone," LaPointe concluded.

Bird Song
by Carol H. Ehrlich
I lay on the lawn outside the music tent
in a dream state
watching cotton clouds above me
creep eastward across the sky.
Sounds of the orchestra were in my
ear -
perfect bliss, if ever I felt it.
A song began, a clear peal of joy.
Startled, I lay stock still to listen.
It seemed to weave a thread
from some earlier life
through my consciousness.

Aspen leaves fluttered overhead,
and I looked for a bird.
But there was no bird.
I realized with a shock
it was a flute I heard -
its eery cadenza floating along
inside me, and from birds in my
memory -
with a tone pure and sweet,
so clear it must have been birdsong.
How could this be?
There was no answer-
but for me
Nirvana is a gorgeous sky, a warm day,
and music of a bird or
sound of a flute in my ear.

DVD: Coming Soon To A Sofa Near You:
by Priscilla Friedersdorf
*A wwwwwwwwww." This is the initial spontane-
Sous verbal reaction to preview scenes and the film
SBabies. Award-winning Director and filmmaker
Thomas Balmes follows four babies from birth until their first
halting steps in geographically and culturally diverse parts of
the world. The result is magical. Ponijao lives with his mother,
siblings and extended family almost literally on the dusty bar-
ren plains near Opuwo, Namibia. Bayarjargal is born in a clinic
and taken home, tightly swaddled on the back of a motorcycle,
to his family residence in Bayanchandmani, Mongolia. Mari
lives with her hovering and doting parents in Tokyo, Japan,
and Hattie resides in San Francisco.
Director Balmes by interspersing film segments of each baby's developmental stages
allows the audience to contrast the infant care represented in their ethnic backgrounds.
We see to our delight and amazement that whether the baby eats, coos or learns to
crawl and walk on the hard-packed dirt of Africa or in a highly controlled and sanitized
environment like Japan or the United States; their health, physical and mental progress

are nearly the same. In
several aspects the African
baby, who receives very little
maternal supervision, plus a
few sharp knocks from sib-
lings and no apparent guid-
ance from a father, matures
S more quickly.
Funny, heartwarming,
expertly and intimately
filmed in gorgeous locations
by Balmes, your heart will
melt at the charm and inno-
cence of Babies... it is just,
you know, "Awwwwwww."

Golf's Oldest Prize Won By Unknown
Whose Name Is A Tongue Twister
by Ed Frank
H is name was next to impossible to pronounce. He was
a 200-1 shot to win golf's oldest tournament. And the
only other tournament he had ever won, this year's
European Tour's Open De Andalucia in Spain, Monarch
Airlines forced him to leave the winning trophy at the airport,
terming it to be a "dangerous object."
It's doubtful this was the case this week when 27-year-old
Louis Oosthuizen departed for his home in South Africa with
the prized Claret Jug after his seven-stroke victory in the 139th
British Open at St. Andrews in Scotland.
While the announcers struggled all weekend with his name,
the unknown Oosthuizen had little problem with golf's most famous course shooting a
final round of 71, finishing 16 under par for the week.
Just a few months ago, the personable Oosthuizen was an aspiring golfer who got
his chance to compete as the result of fellow countryman Ernie Els' youth foundation.
Now he is the six South African to win this major championship joining the ranks of
Els, Retief Goosen, Trevor Immelman, Bobby Locke and Gary Player.
Accepting the Claret Jug during the trophy presentation, he thanked Els and then
acknowledged South Africa's leader Nelson Mandela who was celebrating his 92nd
birthday last Sunday.
Last weekend, old St. Andrews toppled the world's best and most famous golfers,
but not Oosthuizen. His putting was superb, his driving near perfect and his overall
performance world-class.
He might have been unknown until last weekend. But that's not the case today. His
win at the oldest golf course in the world is what sports is all about. It proves that pre-
dicting a winner is usually next to impossible
No Cubs Spring Training for Naples
It appears the campaign to bring the Chicago Cubs to Naples for spring training
has ended as the team will remain in Mesa, Arizona.
The Cubs have trained in Mesa for more than 50 years and are working with the
city for a new facility. A group in Naples had mounted an aggressive drive to shift that
site to Southwest Florida, promising to build a stadium and training facilities without
using property taxes.

opportunity that exists in Naples, for
the time being we will continue our
work in Mesa to build a spring train-

Following the Cubs announce-
ment, Craig Bouchard, a leader of
the Naples group, said they have
respectfully withdrawn their offer.

PGA Tips
Replacing A
Club During A
Round Of Golf
by Matt Oakley,
PGA Golf
T while watch-
A ing the
S", V V British
Open last week I
heard, as everyone
did, that Tiger
Woods was using
a new putter for
the first time. It
made me think, what if in the middle of
a round he decides that this wasn't the
putter for him and he wanted to change
back to his old one? I am sure he had
it with him at the hotel just in case. I
thought I would tell you what the Rules
of Golf say about the subject:
The first thing we need to know is
what rule deals with replacing clubs mid-
round. It is Rule 4.3 Damaged Clubs:
Repair or Replacement. Here is how it
If, during a stipulated round, a player's
club is damaged in the normal course of
play, he may:
(i) use the club in its damaged state for
the remainder of the round: or
(ii) without unduly delaying play, repair
it or have it repaired, or:
(iii) as an additional option available

only if the club is unfit for play, replace
the damaged club with any club as long
as you do not unduly delay play.
So, you cannot replace a club mid-
round just because you want to, it has to
be damaged.
Now, what constitutes damage? Can I
wrap it over my knee and cause it to be
damaged so I can replace it?
Rule 4.3d speaks to this. If, during a
stipulated round, a player's club is dam-
aged other than in the normal course of
play it must not be substituted or replaced
during the round.
This shows us how the Rules of Golf
is there protect the field and that decision
to put in a new putter is something that
you will have to live with until the round
is over.#

Over 15,000 Miles

Of Sanibel Biking
submitted by Frank and Denise of
Dublin, Ireland
We thought one had to die to go
to heaven but all one has to do
is cross the bridge to Sanibel
Island and start biking!
We arrived on the first of June and
to date have 1,665 miles on our bikes
(which do not have gears).
There is nothing so wonderful as bik-
ing on Sanibel. In the summer when
the temperature is very hot, biking can
be quite cool as one generates a lovely
We have been biking on Sanibel now
for eight years and to date have 15,456
miles, which is the equivalent of travelling
five times across the US. Is this a "casual"
cycling record on Sanibel?
Each year we get older (like everyone
else) but biking for us seems to be get-
ting easier. This year we treated ourselves
to two nice, soft saddle covers. These
appear to have helped somewhat!
Apart from the usual biking paths we
found many more interesting places to
bike i.e. The Dunes, Wulfert, Beachview,
Baily Tract, Herons Landing, Henderson,
Dinkins Bay, Dixie Beach and the light-
house fishing pier.
You will not believe that when we
return to Ireland we do not bike at all.
We are half way through our vacation
now and already we are looking forward
to next year's biking here.
Next year, as we will be one year
older, Denise has a plan. We shall rent a
tandem and hopefully Frank will do all the
pedaling and I shall just sit on the back
and enjoy biking.
Next year? Who knows, we might
even ride the bikes on the Fourth of July
In order to see Sanibel at its best, get
on those bikes and start biking!4

It's Back To Baseball After 3,700-Mile
Jaunt To Southern California

Josh and Doug Congress in front of the Angel Stadium
by Doug and Josh Congress
edited By Ed Frank
anibel to Anaheim,
California -it was
an eight-day trip of
majestic sightseeing with
only two days of Major
League baseball in Denver.
But now it's time to get
back on our major mis-
sion of visiting the 10 big
league parks in the west-
ern United States.
Game time today is
not until 7 p.m. when the
Angels take on their bit-
ter rival, the Los Angeles
Dodgers in inter-league
Rock formation at Angel Stadium

With all day to "do"
Southern California, Josh
demanded we check out
Huntington Beach, known as
Surf City. His eyes were pop-
ping huge waves, beautiful
sugar sand beaches and thou-
sands of tan, bronzed... well
you get the picture.
Finally it was time for base-
ball and we were excited to
see Angel Stadium, a beautiful
facility that will host this year's
All-Star game. But there are a
couple of features that are dis-
Beyond the left field wall is
a rock formation with running
water. It looks pretty cool until
you get close and see the rocks
are fake. The scoreboards are
cluttered with advertisements
and lack the clarity of the high
definition boards found in the
newer parks.
We do like the park, but
have become spoiled by some
of the newer facilities that offer
so many great features and
amenities. Angel Stadium was
opened in 1960 and is the
fourth oldest Major League
stadium. It is in need of renova-
tion, but is still nicer than half
the stadiums we have visited.
The game was a huge rivalry
since the teams are only 30
miles apart.
Despite generating only four
hits, the Angels managed to

ISLAND SUN -JULY 23, 2010 37

Josh Congress with his game hot dog
score two runs and completely shut down
the Dodger offense. However, it ended in
a weird play after the Dodgers threatened
to tie the score.
With runners on first and second,
pinch hitter Jamey Carroll bloops a hit
to left field. The runner on second scores
what would have been the tying run only
to have it nullified when Dodger Russell
Martin was picked off rounding second
Nest day's rematch was the final
game in this series, and with the Dodgers
having lost six straight, they came with
a strong offensive game that ended in
a 10-6 victory. It was a long 412-hour
game that included a 20-minute power
outage delay.
Despite the late hour, it didn't keep us
from stopping at In-N-Out Burger (our
third visit) for delicious double-double
hamburgers and fries.
The next day it was onward to Los
Angeles for two days of baseball between
the Dodgers and New York Yankees a
bitter rivalry that transcends decades.
Just imagine this scene: Our 2003
Toyota Sequoia with 129,000 miles and
fresh off a 3,700 cross-county trip, lit-
tered with tourist and ballpark magnets
and covered with desert dust, arrives in
posh Beverly Hills.
Clunking and spewing dust, we pull
alongside a $300,000 Rolls Royce where
I was tempted to ask the driver if he had
some Grey Poupon. (Remember that
famous commercial?)
Once out of high society, we arrive
at the 56,000-seat Dodger Stadium. It
opened in 1962 and is the largest in
Despite its numerous deficiencies, the
park oozes baseball history and lore. And
it provides breathtaking views of down-
town Los Angeles and the San Gabriel
Dodger Stadium is in great shape for
its near 50-year-old age. It offers the best
peanuts in baseball and the Dodger Dog
isn't half bad either.
There are, however, outdated score-
board; uncomfortable seats with little leg
room; the ushers are seat hopper Nazis;
and the parking is horrendous. It requires
at least an hour to get out of the parking
Nevertheless, Dodger Stadium is a top
five park.

Sign in Dodger Stadium

As for the games, we had the incred-
ible privilege of watching two games
between these dreaded rivals with game
one going to the Yankees and game two
to the Dodgers.
Speaking of hatred, there were thou-
sands of loud, rowdy Yankee fans in the
crowd and as the game intensity rose,
the alcohol consumption increased.
Ultimately fights were breaking out every-
where. It was if we went to see a fight
and the Dodger-Yankee game broke out.
Tomorrow we head up the coast to
San Francisco, but it has been two days
without an In-N-Out Burger and both of
us are experiencing the shakes. Our first
priority tomorrow is finding an In-N-Out

Around The Islands With Anne

Keep Your Cool This Summer

And Dine Out At A Discount
by Anne Mitchell
DT don't bother heating up your kitchen by cooking at home
during these hot summer months. Island restaurateurs
are doing their best to lure us out of our air-conditioned
comfort zones and into theirs!
They are offering some great deals on our favorite foods and
menu items. I always think of these specials as a way local busi-
nesses show their appreciation for islanders and the folks who
support them year-round.
Flip through the Island Sun and you'll find ads for lots of
mouth-watering meal deals. Here are some I noticed in last
week's Sun as examples of what's out there:
McT's Thursday Night Special features all you can eat snow crab. The tavern
special is a steak sandwich and fries for $6. Also, McT's is one of the few island eater-
ies open for lunch; hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Tuesday is Mexican Night at The Great White Grill, which also has the distinc-
tion of having 28 beers on tap. Pizzas are delivered free.
During Sunset Dining at II Tesoro from 5 to 7 p.m. buy one entree and get one
The Jacaranda has two-for-one happy hour from 4 to 7 p.m. The Happy Apps
are just $5.95 each and they include sesame encrusted Ahi tuna, chilled oysters, snow
crab legs and steamed shrimp, to name just a few.
At Hungry Heron one child 10 and under eats free with purchase of each
$15.95 and up entree. Also, there's 10 percent off lunch or dinner menu prices every
day. On Tuesdays, buy one get one half off if you order the shrimp and chips or fish
and chips (includes corn and French fries).
Burgers and quesadillas are only $5 at The Sanibel Grill from 4 to 5 p.m.
At Doc Ford's Rum Bar & Grille, try The Bull on the Beach, the restaurant's
2010 charity drink. Over $75,000 has been raised for The Children's Hospital from
sales of this cocktail.
Ellington's pre-sunset menu from 5 to 6:30 p.m. offers three-course dinner
choices for $35.
Twilight Cafe will take half off the price of a second entree.
Beachview Steakhouse & Seafood's early bird menu from 4:30 to 6 p.m.
has items for $16.95 and under. Dinner is served Wednesday through Saturday.
If you prefer to stay home, check these out:
Sanibel Deli & Coffee Factory is selling one large 16-inch pizza and 10 wings
for $11.99 from 4 to 8 p.m. daily, pickup only.
Jerry's Market has fresh Alaskan wild salmon for $14.39 a pound.

When the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) needed luggage
to train its bomb-sniffing dogs, TSA turned to Goodwill Industries of
Southwest Florida. The non-profit donated more than 60 pieces of used
luggage and nearly 900 pounds of clothing for use in training its canine inspectors
and their handlers.
"It'll definitely go to good use," said inspector Jason Nimark, TSA lead exposives
detection canine handler. "The donation of this luggage will enhance the training of
our dogs and the protection of the public."

"These suitcases and clothes were soiled, torn and damaged, so we couldn't re-sell
them," said Laura Alford, Goodwill's director of donor development. "This was a great
way to repurpose these items and keep them out of the landfills. And if Goodwill can
contribute to our national security, that's even better."
The baggage and clothing will be used for testing and training at Miami
International Airport and at an off-site training center.
"When we train, we use up to 50 pounds of clothing in the bags to simulate real
baggage," Nimark explained. "We're always trying to teach the dogs something new,
so there's constant training for the dogs and handlers."
TSA also assists other federal, state, and municipal agencies in the training of their

Back-To-School Clothing Drive
rish DeFeo, president of the Moms Prosperity Network of Florida, announces
the first annual Back-To-School Clothing Drive to benefit Lee County students
in need. Families are facing hardships this year more than ever, so the Moms
Prosperity Network of Florida has partnered with several business owners to coordi-
nate drop off sites for donations of gently used or new back-to-school clothing in all
sizes. DeFeo is encouraging the community to clean out their closets and donate any
clothes that are gently worn to this cause.
All clothing collected will be distributed at the 11th annual BIG Backpack event held
at Harborside Event Center on Sunday, August 1. A boutique and changing area will
be set up for kids to select an outfit in their size. Some shoes and other accessories
may also be provided. Volunteers are needed to help sort the clothing according to size
and gender. Donations of hangers and racks are also needed.
Moms Prosperity Network of Florida is a non-profit organization. Its mission is
to assist, support and provide inspiration to moms in the community. The organiza-
tion offers life coaching, parenting classes, financial coaching as well as the resources
needed to have a life of dignity. For more information visit http://www.momsprosperi-

Hidden Treasures

Some Jewels Are Not Created Equal
by Dan Schuyler and Karen Bell
occasionally, beautiful jewelry is created through tech-
Sniques that have traveled across the ages using materials
that are not rare or precious. Instead they are created
with skill and tenacity. One such method is enameling.
Enameling is the fusion of a special powdered glass to metals.
The glass can be applied using different techniques, but all meth-
ods use heat to melt the powder.
Often the artist's "canvas" is a jewel or objet d'art. They
paint" a surface of the jewel with the crushed glass and, through repeated applica-
tions and firings, create miniature works of art. Although the first known enamels
were created in ancient Egypt in 1500 BC., the art of painting in glass has been prac-
ticed throughout the centuries.

Over time the
art of the enameller
evolved with changes __
in history, fashion and *
available technologies.
Three of the most
beautiful enameling
techniques are: cloi- 4
sonnet, guilloche and ,
plique-A-jour. C .
Cloisonne is the l
oldest method of ,"
enameling. First prac-
ticed by the ancient
Egyptians, cloisonne
enameling has been
embraced by many
ancient and modern
cultures. First, a net- '
work is formed by
attaching thin metal
wires to a metal sur-
face, like the top of a
jewel. Crushed glass i
enamels of various
colors and optical : '
properties are then ,
placed in the various
cells. Through repeat-
ed application of the HT Galapagos enamel collection
enamels, firing and
polishing, the spaces
are filled with the jewel-like enamels. The result is an enameled jewel decorated with a
pattern of gem-like colors separated by polished metal wires.
Guilloche, from the French for engine turning, is the art of engraving intricate cir-
cular patterns onto a metal surface. In guilloche enameling, an engine-turned surface
is painted with translucent enamel. The color of the enamel pools and collects in the
engraved lines, heightening the pattern and giving it depth and a sculpture-like appear-
ance. Some of the finest examples of guilloche enameling were produced in the work-
shops of the Russian jeweler Karl Faberg&.
Plique-A-jour is one of the most beautiful and most difficult enameling techniques.
The results of plique-A-jour enameling are stunning. Like cloisonne enameling, plique-
A-jour begins with a lattice of thin metal bands. The spaces between the metal bands
are filled with transparent enamels, but, unlike cloisonne, there is no metal backing.
When completed, a plique-A-jour jewel transmits sunlight like a miniature stained glass
window. Russian masters created particularly stunning examples of plique-A-jour work
during the mid-1800s and the jewelers of the Art Nouveau period.
Today many of the historical techniques are being revived by contemporary jewelry
designers and artisans and are available at fine jewelry retail locations.

Umbilical Cord
Blood; A Powerful
Umbilical cord blood is one of the
most valuable tools to treat blood
diseases in children, says Emad
Salman, MD, director of the Pediatric
Oncology/Hematology program at
The Children's Hospital of Southwest
Blood from the umbilical cord, which
is found in the placenta following child-
birth, is rich in stem cells that form a per-
son's blood, like those in bone marrow,
Dr. Salman said.
Stem cells in cord blood can treat
cancers of the blood; inherited diseases,
such as sickle cell anemia; or conditions
causing bone marrow to fail, such as dis-
ease or poison. "Cord blood is much less
expensive and painful than a bone mar-
row transplant because the cord blood is
free, and a live donor is not required,"
said Dr. Salman.
A "stem cell rescue" involves infus-
ing a patient with the new stem cells
that travel to the bone marrow and help
create new, healthy blood cells. Most
pediatric oncologists recommend banking
cord blood for use by the general public
or from the birth of a second child if your
first child has a blood cancer.
Lee Memorial Health System does
not do stem cell rescue or bone marrow
transplants. However, The Children's
Hospital does provide care for patients

ISLAND SUN -JULY 23, 2010 43
who have received the procedures, Dr.
Salman said. "Patients must be followed
carefully afterward, as they will be prone
to infection for at least one year.
Stem cells from cord blood are most
useful in pediatric patients. Adults may
be better off with a bone marrow trans-
plant because of the number of stem cells

Power Colors
by Cindy Malszycki
C colors are
more complex and
sophisticated and
are incorporating
a variety of special
effects including
pearlescence and
metallics along with
the dimension of
transparency and translucency," says
Jay de Sibour, president of the Color
Marketing Group (CMG).
Some 700 CMG color and design pro-
fessionals meet twice each year to concur
on what direction color trends will take
one to three years out.
Color is morphing, blending and over-
lapping, trending away from any one
color standing alone.

Many of the colors in the forecast pal-
ette will be redder with the exception of
the blue family, which is moving towards
Red-rich, bold, passionate red is
making a splashy comeback. Used at
its full intensity, red will make a strong
statement as a room's primary color or
enliven most any area when used for
Over the past several seasons,
orange has moved from a fringe color
into more traditional environments when
reddened into rich ambers and coppery
Yellows endure in cooler, softer, less
acidic tones very classic.
As nature's most prominent hue,
green will always be a strong influence in
home d&cor. New olive tones with golden
touches along with yellow-based greens
are a current direction with blue greens
forming a bridge to blue.
Soothing, aquatic blues with a metal-
lic watery sheen suggest an expensive
treatment when paired with silvery tones.
A dark, rich, red-cast brown, inspired
by the current coffee craze, addresses the
desire for an antique appearance or sense
of heritage.
Fathomless purple has a deep rich-
ness with a muted metallic sheen impart-
ing a high-end appearance.
This color forecast for the next 12
to 18 months can serve as a guideline
to those considering an update to their
home d&cor. Your decorator will guide
you to the right fabrics for your home
and lifestyle.

Insurance Tip:
Condo Insurance
by Marge Meek
after two
years the
state legis-
S lature has passed
the condominium
S bill that has some
significant changes
that went into
effect on July 1.
The bill deals only
with residential
condominiums, not homeowners associ-
ations or non-residential condominiums,
like office complexes that are organized
like a condominium. Following is a syn-
opsis of some of the more interesting
rules that are included in the legislation.
Association insurance must be based
on the replacement cost as determined
by an appraisal, which needs to be done
or updated at least every 36 months.
This doesn't mean that the association
board must insure to 100 percent of the
appraised value; the board can decide a
lesser amount as long as they are within
insurance guidelines. The board is respon-
sible for selecting the deductible.
Heating, ventilating and air condi-
tioning equipment is now included in
the association master policy portion of
property losses and the board cannot
refuse to insure these items. The respon-
sibility to maintain, replace or repair this

equipment is not covered, but probably
is addressed in the condominium bylaws
and documents. Items like installed dry-
wall, windows, interior non-load bearing
walls, doors, toilets, bath tubs, sinks, clos-
et rods and sliding glass doors remain the
insurance responsibility of the association.
Improvements that benefit the unit owner
specifically need to be insured by the unit
condo owner; for example, new interior
walls or an enclosed balcony.
At least $2,000 of property loss
assessment coverage does continue and
it pertains to assessments triggered by a
loss, not repairs or upkeep.
A piece of previous legislation that
has been removed has to do with the
requirement for the unit owner to carry
insurance and provide proof by listing the
association as additional insured on any
unit policies. The statute caused a filing
and compliance nightmare for the asso-
ciation and added burdensome requests
to the insured and the insurance agent.
No more, unless the association chooses
to continue the practice.
There are a few more changes
approved by the legislature that apply to
condominiums. Stay tuned.

Captiva insurance agent, who can be
