Family Combined Service

To Sanibel With Four

Generations In The U.S. Military
by Mike Gillespie, Vice President, Committee of the Islands
L ast week we report-
ed on the extraordi-
nary military service
record of Col. Edwin
Reed and his wife Jean.
Reed was a Marine
fighter pilot who served
in WWII, Korea, and
Vietnam. He also later
became the helicopter
pilot of Marine One
for President John F
Jean was a Navy flight
nurse who met Ed in
Japan in 1951 during the
Korean War. Soon after
they got married in Hawaii
and fell in love with it.
But for their years after
the service, they picked
Sanibel over Hawaii and
raised their family here.
We also told you last
week how Ed Reed had Ed and Jean Reed on Sanibel, 1992
been part of the 1974
effort to incorporate
Sanibel and how he had
joined the Committee of
the Islands and became its
chairman in the organiza-
tion's second year, 1976.
What we have discov-
ered since then is that this
family's roots in service to
their country go back four
I learned this as I was
speaking to Nori Ann
Reed about last week's ,"
story. Nori Ann, who lives t
today on Sanibel, is the
daughter of Ed and Jean
Reed, and is one of the
long line of Reeds and
Hays who have served
their country in the active
military. Her mother, 1985 Ed Reed with Navy pilot son Rob, and future Navy
age 86, also resides on pilot grandson Matt
Sanibel. Her father Ed
passed away in 1994, from complications related to the effects of Agent Orange that
he had been exposed to in Vietnam.
Nori Ann is a retired Navy captain whose career included service as Commander of
Logistics Forces, Naval Central Command, from 2003 to 2005. Among other respon-
sibilities in this command, she oversaw the Navy's efforts to supply American forces
with fuel, food, mail, personnel, bombs and ammunition during the war in Iraq.
Service Began In WWI
I met with Nori Ann again this week to learn more about her family. She told me
that the Reed family's military service began with her mother's father, Lorin Hay, who
served in the Navy from 1914 to 1918. He was a "coaler," who fed the coal-fired
boilers that powered the USS Leviathan. Subsequent generations, Nori Ann told us,
followed her grandfather's service in the family tradition.
Nori Ann's mother, Jean, joined the Navy in 1944 and served to 1953. She had
eventually qualified as a Navy flight nurse and would tend to sick and wounded troops,
often on board the very planes that were being used to pick them up.
Jean's brothers also served in the Navy. Lorin became a pilot in the Pacific during
WWII and his younger brother, James, was a submarine captain in the 1970's.
Edwin Reed had joined the Marines in 1942 and served until 1973. During his
time in WWII, he qualified to fly virtually every plane in the Marine inventory, and flew
combat missions in the Pacific. He also flew transports and fighter planes in Korea and
helicopters in Vietnam, for everything from transport to medivac missions to attack
helicopters. He piloted the presidential Marine One helicopter from 1961-1963.

Ed and Jean Reed with future Navy men Matt, Bryan, and Greg Reed

Robert Reed, Nori
Ann's brother, gradu-
ated from the US
Naval Academy and
served in the Navy
from 1971 to 1981.
He flew the carrier-
based, S-3 anti-sub-
marine aircraft, and
now flies 747s as a
commercial pilot for
Nori Ann, who
was the next in line
served in the Navy
from 1978 to 2008.
She was commis-
sioned as an ensign
at Officer Candidate
School in Newport,
Rhode Island, and
was sworn in by her
father. She went on

ISLAND SUN JULY 30, 2010 7
We asked Nori Ann about her father's involvement in the Sanibel community,
after they moved here in 1972. As reported last week, he had joined the Committee
of the Islands to help preserve the gains that had been achieved in 1974, when the
island won the status of an independently governed city within Lee County. Colonel
Reed had close contact in those days with the Lee County commissioners, since he
had become manager of the county airport, Page Field, which was the primary airport
serving the Fort Myers area. He was concerned about the way the county was plan-
ning major developments on Sanibel as a source of greater and greater county tax
Speaking Out For Sanibel
Nori Ann told us it was a measure of her father's love for the island that he rose
above the military traditions of a lifetime to speak out against these plans. In the mili-
tary, she said, you learn not to speak of your political feelings or the decisions and
actions of the civilian government. Despite this, her father felt so strongly about the
threat of overdevelopment to the island he had come to love that he became active
with the Committee of the Islands in efforts to protect Sanibel against such threats.
In 1942, Edwin Reed and his high school basketball teammates had gone as a
L -,.group to the local recruiting station to enlist in the Marines. Nori Ann tells us they
were all west Texas farm boys who had the attitude of "whatever needs doin', they'll
do it."
That attitude seems to have survived through four generations of the Reed family.
And it showed up again here on Sanibel, when Ed Reed joined the effort to help
protect this island's unique and natural characteristics.
We think he would be pleased with the results.
If you have stories about Sanibel's history, the Committee of the Islands invites
your input. Email us at For other commentaries about Sanibel, visit M

Don't Have A (Sea) Cow, Man!

Libby Rittmeyer, Samantha Dekoff, Zoe Love, Jilly Rockenbach and Liz Hilliker
submitted by Kate Pozeznik
Did you know that Florida has the largest population of manatees in the
United States? In fact, Lee County is a haven for manatees because of our
bays and estuaries, and river habitats that stay relatively warm all year. Last
week at the Sanibel Sea School, enthusiastic campers explored what makes mana-
tees so unique.
Early in the week, we visited a seagrass bed near a shipwreck. Well, in actuality, the
shipwreck" was a small sailboat that ran aground this past winter, but its location on
a shallow grass flat made for a great story collectively told by our boat's "crew" specu-
lating the cause of the sailboat's mysterious demise. With masks and snorkels, we
carefully entered the shallow water in order to get a close-up view of the seagrass bed,
a choice manatee habitat. Manatees are herbivores, preferring a diet of seagrass and
other marine plants. We discovered that seagrass is delicate and is easily damaged or

destroyed by boat propellers and heavy
footsteps. To reduce our impact, we
stepped gingerly in the shallow water
and allowed the buoyancy of salt water
to float us above the manatees' food
source. Seagrass is important to many
marine animals, as we discovered dur-
ing our snorkel. Many juvenile fish rely
on the cover of seagrass to avoid larger
predators, and it also provides a home for
many crustaceans and mollusks.
We learned that poor water qual-
ity can negatively impact manatees, as
pollutants can lead to the destruction of
seagrass and mangrove habitats. To help
keep manatees healthy, we made our
own biodegradable soap that is more
marine friendly than traditional soaps,
which often contain chemicals that can
contaminate water sources. Shells, small
treasures, and even coins were inlaid in
a menagerie of brightly colored bar- and
shell-molded soaps.
We created beads with modeling
clay to represent manatee otoliths. We
learned that otoliths are ear bones that
feature concentric rings that allow us to
ascertain the approximate age of a mana-
tee and can indicate high growth periods
during the life of a manatee. Manatees
grow slower in the winter when water is
cooler and they are less active. In warmer
months, when food is abundant and man-
atees are active, they grow more rapidly.
In fact, female manatees can grow up
to 1,200 pounds and give birth to baby
manatees that weigh up to 70 pounds.
Male manatees do not grow as large as
females, but can weigh as much as 800

pounds. Due to their size, manatees are
often referred to as sea cows, but surpris-
ingly, despite their large mass, manatees
have only about one inch of fat covering
their bodies.
Midweek, an obstacle course was
set up on the beach in order to mimic
the dangers that manatees face. One
part of the course included throwing
soft foam shapes at dodging campers to
represent manatees avoiding boat propel-
lers. Manatees cannot hear high-pitched
noises generated by boats well, making
them susceptible to boat propeller inju-
ries. Campers ran a jump rope gauntlet
that represented manatees avoiding cold
water to seek warm water during the win-
ter months. After all that running around
on the beach, we needed a cold treat
and we cooled off by getting ice cream at
Dairy Queen. It was refreshing after a day
in the sun!
We also emulated manatees in the
summer by spending a day at Bowman's
Beach. During the winter months when
the water is cool, manatees spend much
of their time in the rivers where the water
is shallow and warmer. Many of us were
surprised to learn that manatees rely on
fresh water for survival. During the sum-
mer months when the water is warmer,
they may venture out into the Gulf of
At the end of the week, we decided to
showcase our knowledge of manatees by
creating posters that feature facts about
manatees, the dangers they face, and
how we can help keep our local manatee
population healthy. Look for our manatee

awareness posters at Bailey's General
Store and other local merchants.
It takes a village to raise a child, and
a community to produce Sanibel Sea
School's Summer Camp. We are grateful
to the Sanibel-Captiva Kiwanis Club for
their support of our student scholarship
program. Bailey's General Store quench-
es our thirst on these hot days with lots
of ice, The Community House hosts our
Friday afternoon milk and cookies, and
Billy's Bikes keeps us in cardboard from
which we build life-size models to really
understand how big our marine neighbors
are. To these folks and countless others,
we extend our sincere gratitude.

Time Running Out
For Seagrape
Lane Buildback
by Anne Mitchell
T orn between irritation and com-
passion, the Sanibel Planning
Commission on Tuesday spent
three hours debating whether an appli-
cant who has missed several deadlines
over a six-year period to rebuild a hurri-
cane-damaged home should be granted
yet another extension.
Hurricane Charley in 2004 and Wilma
in 2005 both inflicted damage to the
duplex at 1114-1116 Seagrape Lane
to the point where it was condemned.
The owners, G. Wesley and Renee J.
Nedblake of Captiva and Kansas City,
Missouri, were not present for Tuesday's
The commissioners denied a request
for four variances to allow the Nedblakes
to build a somewhat larger duplex on
what is classified as an unbuildable lot
under today's standards. It is not large
enough to qualify for even a single home.
Commissioner Tom Krekel argued to
grant the extension, as recommended
by Planning Director Jim Jordan, and
his motion passed with a 4-2 vote
(Commissioner Paul Reynolds and Vice
Chairman Phillip Marks were opposed
and Commissioner Chuck Ketteman was
According to Roy Gibson, acting
planning director, to date no construc-
tion plans have been submitted either
to Sanibel or the Florida Department of

Environmental Protection even after sev-
eral extensions to allow the Nedblakes to
get some use from their too-small lot.
The city passed a buildback ordinance
in 2006 to give relief to owners of prop-
erty damaged substantially by storms and
other natural occurrences. It allows con-
struction in the same footprint as before,
even though the lot is unbuildable under
current codes due to factors such as size
and location. The ordinance also set a
24-month time limit for obtaining a per-
mit. Almost six years have passed since
Hurricane Charley.
This is the first case under that build-
back ordinance, said Chairman Mike
Valiquette. "I don't want it to disrupt what
we spent so much time on."
Even with a six-month extension, the
Nedblakes will have to move fast to get
the process underway, and commission-
ers emphasized that this is their final
chance otherwise the lot will become
worthless as a homesite.
Bud Lawrence, of Period Style
Homes, said he had only been involved
with the Nedblakes for three months. He
said the duplex was "a piece of junk" and
his clients didn't want to spend money
building an equally poor design, which
would happen if they kept to the same
footprint. They wanted 2,540 square
feet of habitable space: buildback permits
them 2,319 square feet.
Several neighbors opposed the vari-
ances and the time extension. Harvey
Oury, a neighbor, said it's possible to
build a small island-style cottage like
others in the neighborhood and still
have a return on investment.
Marks noted, "Three pieces of
this property have been sold to other

people," he said, making the lot smaller
than it was originally. "He is gaming the
system. On June 12, 2010, he ran out of
Chairman Mike Valiquette called
it a "self-imposed hardship" and
Commissioner Reynolds said the planning

FGCU Holds Earth Charter Meetings
At Peace Palace In The Hague

Corcoran and young colleagues in front of the International Peace Palace in The Hague
The Center for Environmental and Sustainability Education at Florida Gulf
Coast University, Fort Myers, participated in a conference celebrating the
10th anniversary of the Earth Charter at the International Peace Palace in the
city of The Hague, Netherlands.
With the theme of Dialogue, Collaboration and Action for a Sustainable Future,
the June 29 event was 10 years to the day since the launch of the Earth Charter in
2000. The document is a people's statement of ethical principles for sustainability
drafted through a global collaborative process. Its proponents include President Mikhail
Gorbachev and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Wangari Maathai, both of whom are asso-
ciated with the Center at FGCU. Participants in the Netherlands meetings reflected on
the international initiative's first decade and charted a course for its future.
Over 200 invitees attended the event, including Earth Charter commissioners, affili-
ates, members of the Earth Charter International Council, youth leaders, and other
partners. Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands and Dutch Prime Minister Jan Peter
Balkenende actively participated. The event was convened by former Dutch Prime
Minister Ruud Lubbers. Eight-hundred-fifty interested people who were not able to
travel to The Hague followed the discussions online.
Center Director Peter Blaze Corcoran shared his recent publication, Young People,
Education, and Sustainable Development: Exploring Principles, Perspectives, and
Praxis (2009) at an authors' reception. Dutch officials from the national program,
Learning for Sustainable Development, helped fund the publication and attended its
European debut.

Corcoran said,
"This international
meeting provided an
important opportu-
nity to look at FGCU's
work in the global con-
text. FGCU is an active
affiliate of the Earth
Charter Initiative and
contributes through the
Center's Earth Charter
Scholarship Project."
The scholarship
project is housed at
FGCU and is directed
by Richard Clugston,
who also attended the
Netherlands meeting.A

Fire Chief To Discuss
Referendum At Shell Point
hell Point Retirement Community invites
residents in the lona-McGregor area to
attend a program presented by Chief
William Elliot of the lona-McGregor Fire District.
Chief Elliot will share information about the Fire
Readiness Assessment referendum that will be
included in the primary election ballot on August
The presentation will take place on Wednesday,
August 11, at 2 p.m. in the Grand Cypress Room
of The Woodlands neighborhood at Shell Point
Retirement Community, Fort Myers.
"This referendum will affect individuals in the
lona-McGregor area, which includes the 2,200
residents at Shell Point," said Dawn Boren, direc-
tor of resident life at Shell Point.
More than 38,000 homes and businesses are
within a 42-square-mile area fire district. Declining
property values, 33 percent over recent years, Fire Cheif William Elliott
have resulted in decreased funding for the district,
to the point where continued decreases will impact
service levels, according to Elliot.
Guests will have the opportunity to meet the chief and have their questions
answered on this and other fire district-related questions.
The event is free; however seating is limited and a reservation is required. Call

Local Zonta Members Among
2,000 At International Convention

Zonta members Linda Robison (left) and Carolyn Gray (right) with past International
President Beryl Sten from Sweden

Nola Theiss, Linda Robison and Karen Pati in San Antonio

The Zonta Club of Sanibel-Captiva was well represented at the most recent
Zonta International convention, held in late June in San Antonio, Texas.
Among the more than 2,000 attendees were local club President Linda
Robison, accompanied by Carolyn Gray (past president); Karen Pati (Area 6 direc-
tor and club board member); and Nola Theiss.
Zonta International, a service organization for professional women dedicated to
improving the status of women, has more than 31,000 members and over 1,200
clubs worldwide, and is found in 66 countries and geographic areas ranging from
North America to Australia, from South America to Mongolia, and throughout
Europe. Founded in the U.S. in 1919, Zonta International spread to Canada and
many European countries by 1950 and to Russia by 1991. The most recent addition
is the British Virgin Islands, established in 2009 and part of District 11 which includes
The international gathering is the opportunity, every two years, for Zonta members
from around the globe to come together and celebrate the organization's achievements
over the previous biennium and set its goals for the new one. Conventioneers hear
internationally renowned speakers and attend business sessions where the organiza-
tion's governance and financial status are reviewed and, where necessary, amended.
Delegates vote on leadership appointments, rules changes, and goals for the new bien-
nium of 2010-2012.
The official delegates from Sanibel-Captiva were Linda Robison and Carolyn Gray.
Robison said, "Attending an international convention with others from around the
world gives those of us from Sanibel a new appreciation of how similar we all are. The
world's needs are our needs and we share many of the same issues."
Zonta's International Service Program for the biennium will receive a total of $1.5
million in funds, apportioned as follows: $500,000 for prevention of gender-based
violence and mother-to-child transmission of HIV in Rwanda (in cooperation with
UNICEF); $500,000 for elimination of obstetric fistula and reduction of maternal
and newborn mortality and morbidity in Liberia (in cooperation with UNFPA); and
$500,000 for the Safe Cities for Women project in Guatemala City and San Salvador
(in cooperation with UNIFEM). In addition, Zonta International provides thousands of
dollars in scholarships for young women with career goals in such areas as business,
aerospace and public affairs.

the manatee, the beaches and collecting shells," said Katie. "I found a lot of shells this

Turtle Tracks
he 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 Foundation monitors the sea turtle nests on Sanibel
and Captiva. If you have questions about the Turtle Tracks program or the sea turtle

Snowy plover with chick
Photo by Hugh McLaughlin

On July 23, nest #14 hatched two
chicks. As of Friday, July 23,
Nest #15 was still active, with
two eggs. There are two chicks from
Nest #14 and five fledglings. All the
nests are on Sanibel's east end. At this
point in the season, it's getting hard
to tell the juvenile birds apart from the
adults. Some of the banded Sanibel plo-
vers 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
SCCF (Sanibel-Captiva Conservation
Foundation) coordinates the monitoring
of nesting on Sanibel. Protective exclo-
sures are staked around 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 nest-
ing season runs through August, and
they can nest two or three times in one

Snapper Kicking
Off At The Passes
by Capt.

,-." he week
I brought
S' strong south-
east winds most
S days and even a
L tropical storm. This
^. J weather pattern
Sept most anglers
in port and there
were very few
boats out. Even
with the rough conditions the big mid-
morning high tides all week were just
too much for me to resist. The days I
did manage to make it out and brave
the rough conditions I found some of
the best redfishing action I have been
on in weeks.
Staying close to home to avoid the
rough conditions of the open sound, I
found good redfish action on just about
every mangrove shoreline and oyster bar
I fished. The last two hours of the incom-
ing tide were on fire with 10-plus redfish

days. Mangrove keys around the power-
lines on both sides of the sound all held
hungry reds. The only good thing with
the wind is you can sit way off the fishing
spot and make long casts. Tail hooked

caught redfish up to 31 inches.
Now is the time to start fishing the
passes for mangrove snapper. Captiva
and Boca Grande passes are usually the
best bet for easy limits of mangrove snap-
per. With the rough conditions I did not
make it up to the passes but have heard
good reports from a few anglers who did.
With all our fish running behind about
a month this year because of the cold
winter, mangrove snapper fishing should
really be starting to kick off. These fish
will hold in the passes for the next few
months and make for easy action on the
biggest snappers of the year.
Look for the bigger schools to hold on
the ledges, drop-offs and heavier structure
in the passes. Drift fishing works best; just
mark where you catch fish on the GPS
and drift it again and again. Live baits
including small pinfish, big shrimp or live
shiners work best. Use enough lead to
make it to the bottom; this will depend
on how fast the tide is moving and could
be anything from a single splitshot to a
3/4-oz. egg sinker. Rig with light 15# or
20# fluorocarbon leader and a 1/0 light

SCCF Wants Cape Coral
Canal Barrier Replaced
In March 2008 Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) joined 10 other
petitioners to challenge a decision by the Florida Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP) that allowed the City of Cape Coral to remove a required storm-
water barrier in the North Spreader/Ceitus Canal in Cape Coral.
The barrier was designed to protect the coastal waters of Matlacha Pass Aquatic
Preserve from Cape Coral's stormwater runoff and drainage through the westernmost
canal. The petitioners agreed to enter into a mediation process called an Ecosystem
Management Approach (EMA) in an attempt to resolve the dispute.
The purpose of the EMA process was to develop a suite of projects that would pro-
vide an alternative to the replacement of the barrier in the Ceitus Canal and provide a
Net Environmental Benefit (NEB) for the protection and benefit of the Matlacha Pass
Aquatic Preserve ecosystem above and beyond the replacement of the stormwater bar-

the diverse stakeholders the NEB projects the City of Cape Coral is willing to com-

CROW Case Of The Week:
Peninsula Cooter
by Brian Johnson
T he shell of
the turtle is
adequate pro-
tection in the wild,
but it was not made
to resist automo-
biles. Turtles who
have been struck
by cars continue to
be among the most
frequent patients
seen at CROW, and the wildlife hospital
urges the public to be cautious drivers
and watch out for these rep-
tiles as they cross the road.
On July 20 Karla Kaufman
rescued a peninsula cooter
(a water turtle) hit by a car in
East Fort Myers in the early
evening. She noticed the ani-
mal on Route 80, and turned
around to get her.
The turtle seemed so badly
injured that she didn't think
she would live, but she kept
the turtle overnight. "My hus-
band and I are big animal lov-
ers," she said.
The next day she dropped
off the cooter at Miracle Mile
Animal Hospital.
The cooter came into
CROW with significant trau-
ma. "There was a triangular
piece of shell over her left

hip that was so unstable, as was a piece
over her tail," said CROW Veterinarian
Dr. Amber McNamara. "She had a bad
wound over her right rear leg, and there
was a lot of blood on her chin and face."
CROW staff gave her several kinds of
pain medication and let her rest quietly.
During the first 72 hours they cleaned
out all the debris from her wounds and
worked on putting back together the jig-
saw puzzle of her shell.
"There's a window of time when you
can get the pieces to fit and knit togeth-
er," said Dr. Amber. "A lot depends on
where the fractures are."
It is most essential for the turtle to
have a defense for their inner organs.
Turtles can lose major shards from their

Dr. Amber getting the cooter positioned
correctly to piece together her shell
carapace and still recover as long as they
are protected in key areas.
CROW staff put a flexible splint
known as Vet-Light on the cooter's shell
to keep all the pieces joined together.
Ideally they would like to clean the
wounds on a regular basis, but they will
need to leave the area alone, for the
most part, so they do not disturb the
healing process of the fractures.
"So far she looks good, though she
had some blood coming up from her
mouth today," said Dr. Amber. "She is
still dealing with a significant amount of

Karla Kaufman rescued the peninsula
The cooter is currently taking baths
in a couple inches of water with another
turtle, and is still on pain medication and
antibiotics. She is expected to stay with
CROW for several more months.
"I'm glad she's hanging in there," said
Kaufman. "It's important that people
know about CROW."

Legislators Vote Against Placing
Nearshore Oil Drilling On Fall Ballot

sions at the behest of the oil industry.
The decision before legislators was whether they would allow
.. the people to decide on a permanent oil drilling ban. If 60 per-
cent of voters agreed this November, the nearshore oil drilling
.. ban would have become constitutional, removing the legislature's
ability to overturn it.
Rather than consider the measure, the House decided it would rather not let the
people vote. In a strategy described by some as "gavel and go," the House convened
and a majority voted to adjourn without taking up the constitutional amendment reso-
The Florida Senate convened shortly before the House adjourned, discussed the
issue briefly and also voted to adjourn without considering the matter. Senators includ-
ing Paula Dockery (R-Lakeland), Mike Fasano (R-New Port Richey) and bill sponsor
Alex Villalobos (R-Miami) dissented that the public deserved for them to vote on the
constitutional amendment, even if it could not be placed on the ballot without House
concurrence. Nevertheless, the Senate voted to adjourn without a vote on the drilling
Hundreds of Floridians from around the state converged on the Capitol July 22 to

decision. The House of Representatives' behavior today was a sobering display of the

After suffering three months of the worst environmental disaster in US history, it
didn't take more than a few hours before MSNBC's Chuck Todd was asking if this "
new technology," (the latest, more tightly fitting "capping stack,") meant that deep-

legislature to adjourn (without action) the special session which was to allow all Florida
voters an opportunity to decide our fate vis-a-vis oil drilling.

Retired Admiral Thad Allen called for continued monitoring of pressure readings

Nesting Sea Turtles Need Our Help
by Amanda Bryant,
SCCF Sea Turtle Coordinator
It is a rare and
special sight to
come across a
nesting sea turtle.
Unfortunately, this
nesting season, there
have been numer-
ous instances of
beachgoers interfer-
ing with the nesting
attempts of these
ancient creatures,
sometimes willfully.
There have been
nesting attempts:
abandoned due to r
furniture, tents, and
other debris left on
the beach, as well
as a number of nest This turtle was photographed at close range while laying eggs

ing attempts inter- have caused the turtle to abort the nesting attempt.
rupted by uneducated
beachgoers. After a
certain number of attempts, a sea turtle that has been unable to nest will eject its
eggs in the water, so failed nesting attempts matter greatly.
Sea turtles are federally protected by the Endangered Species Act, making it illegal
to interfere with their nesting and hatching in any way. Things that fall under this cat-
egory include:
Leaving furniture, tents, and toys on the beach
Approaching a nesting sea turtle (especially with a flashlight)
Interfering with hatchlings or using flash photography or flashlights on sea turtles
or hatchlings
It is important to remember that the city ordinances require dark beaches and
require all beachgoers to take everything off the beach by 9 p.m. These ordinances
exist to protect sea turtles and ensure their continued survival for generations to come.
Sea turtles are easily disturbed by movement, lights, and noise. If you encounter a
sea turtle on a nighttime stroll, please, keep
a respectful distance (at least 150 feet) and
watch quietly.
The nesting numbers are down this year
statewide. Added to the catastrophic effects
of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, a success-
ful nesting season on Sanibel and Captiva
islands can help sea turtles throughout the
gulf survive and rebound.3

On behalf of our entire organiza-
tion, I would like to thank every-
one who contributed to our new
video production campaign at CROW.
We met our goal in less than two weeks
and local videographer Rusty Farst has
already begun working on the project.
When completed, this video will wel-
come visitors to our education center and
inspire them with the story of CROW's
42-year history of people working togeth-
er to save wildlife through compassion,
care and education.
Over the years, so many people have
been a part of CROW and each and
every one of them has helped make
a difference in the lives of our wildlife
neighbors. We are honored to have the
continued support of our local commu-
nity, businesses and visitors from around
the world. We look forward to saving lives
together for many years to come. Thank
you from all of us at CROW.

Excellence on Friday, August 6 at 7:30 p.m.
AOTO and DANB joined in an effort to
capture the passion in both art and sport to
inspire individuals to strive for excellence every
day. This collaboration introduced works by
Olympian artists as backgrounds for Fused
Tutu, a four-part ballet that presents a jour-
ney for excellence. Featured in Part III of
Fused Tutu is performed around a replica of
Olympian artist Larry Young's Tango statue.
The public is invited to join in this celebra-
tion of the arts. Berne Davis, a long-time sup-
porter of the Arts in Southwest Florida and of
Art of the Olympians, will welcome a 15-foot
replica of Larry Young's Tango to the Art of
the Olympians collection at 7:30 p.m. The
statue was replicated by artist Paul Costanza so
that it could be flown, turned and toured with
the DANB.
Performers Carla Amancio and Andre
Valladon will give a special presentation of
Tango from Fused Tutu at 7:45 p.m. in the
Sports Experience Gallery. Admission to the
event is free.

opic for last Friday morning meet-
ing: Caregivers.
There are just some people
you know you are going to like, after
you have been in their company only a
few moments. Monica Dunkley is one
of those people. Monica is a clinical
educator/consultant with the Older Adult
Services at Lee Memorial Health System
and with Hope Parkinson's Outreach
Program, Hope Hospice of Southwest
Florida. She also serves on the board of
the Florida Council of Aging. Monica
spoke on the essential need for caregiver
support. A quote from a Lee Memorial
Health System handout reads: "Chances
are good that everyone will be impacted
by a family caregiver at some point in
their life." A quote from Rosalynn Carter:
"There are four kinds of people: Those
who are caregivers, those who have been
caregivers, those who will be caregivers,
and those who will need a caregiver."
Current statistics say that 20 percent of
the U.S. population will be 65 years old
by 2030. The need for eldercare educa-
tion and programs will determine the
future of our elderly. Yet, resources are
disappearing. Cutbacks to existing pro-
grams are being stretched, while need is
Monica asked us to imagine what the
morning process is like for a caregiver of

a person with Alzheimer's. The daily ritu-
als of bathing, dressing, feeding, and con-
stant anxiety for safety. How do you cope
with the loneliness of caring for a person
you love who does not recognize you or
cannot relate to you on any level? This is
only one example of caregiver strain. All
caregivers need some type of support.
Monica said, "There are still programs
that can help, take off that Superman or
woman cape." The CARE program at
Lee Memorial Health System is specifi-
cally designed for you with topics such as:
understanding aging, illness and behavior

life issues; responsibilities and stress; doc-
tor/patient communication and medica-
tion management, personal care, mobility
and falls, and so much more. The CARE
program is designed to provide caregiv-
ing individuals and family members free
comprehensive education. This series will
enable caregivers to provide enhanced
care for their loved ones while better
maintaining their own emotional and
physical health and well-being.
Just, imagine your loved one without
anyone to take care of him or her, that
is how essential it is for the caregivers to
take care of themselves. Call for informa-

Another call you might make is to
your congressmen and senators. Call or
e-mail them, find out what they are doing
for the elderly. Ask them about monies
for adult daycare programs. The need is
here now and definitely will be even more
important in the years ahead.

The Sanibel Lighthouse
(After seeing a painting by Pam Brodersen)
by Sidney B. Simon
Sanibel Lighthouse,
you stand taller than the
tropical palms you clutch
so close to your iron spine.
The painting is alive,
your light almost rotates,
stares back at me and I wonder,
what have you seen?

Have you looked down
upon countless toddlers?
Frisky ones and some anxious,
still daring into the foam.
Mothers, towels spread wide,
to dry and cuddle in safety's arms?
How many picnics, fires in pits,
hot dogs on wires, and tantalizing,

brown-crusted marshmallows
sandwiched between graham
crackers and milk chocolate
have scented the air around your light?
Did they fog it?
And old people with canes?
Couples, their last look at the sea?
Young lovers seeing only each other,
fishermen casting live bait,
maybe hoping to reel in a frothy lover
or two from the sea?
On moonless nights, stars undimmed,
see the blankets of
people reading the dance
of distant constellations,
turning softly to caress each other,
knowing salty kisses?
Did you witness the drowned body
that washed up on your beach,
the one now buried,
nameless, only the date,
in the little cemetery bikers salute on
the path to Gulfside beach?
I know I see you, Sanibel Lighthouse.
When I've been away,
you are the first thing I look for as
I wind down the causeway
Day on night, you guide me home,
no matter how lost I am.

Book Review
The Girl Who
Kicked The
Hornet's Nest
by Max
THrne Girl Who
Kicked The
," Hornet's
Nest is the cli-
mactic finale to
Stieg Larsson's
Millennium Trilogy
which has dominat-
ed number one on
America's hardback
fiction list throughout the summer.
"The completion of the trilogy con-
firms Stieg Larsson as one of the great
talents of contemporary crime fiction,"
according to the Sunday Times of
Preceded by The Girl With The
Dragon Tattoo and The Girl Who
Played With Fire, Hornet's Nest wraps
up the story of Mikael Blomkvist, a
Swedish publisher and crusading jour-
nalist, and Lisbeth Salander, an intrigu-
ing 24-year-old daughter of a Swedish
woman and brutish Russian father with a
murderous KGB past.
The former Soviet intelligence officer
is mixed up in crimes involving weapons,
narcotics, sex trafficking, spousal abuse
and attempted murder of his own daugh-
ter all perpetrated under the criminal
protection of a rogue cell operating in the
Swedish security police.
Salander, an anti-social nymph of a
girl with a genius IQ, but scarred from a
childhood of abuse, trauma and confine-
ment in a psychiatric prison, is hospital-
ized with injuries inflicted by her father,
and indicted for attacking him in self
Helpless in her hospital bed, Salander
is stalked, but survives to face a trial that
throbs with courtroom drama. Also on
the loose is a genetic freak of monstrous

physique who can feel no pain even
when his feet are nailed to the floor with
a nail gun.
"The author writes from the heart, not
from a formula... Larsson clearly loved
his brave misfit Lisbeth. And so will you,"
according to USA Today.
Unfortunately, Larsson died suddenly
in 2004 just after delivering the manu-
scripts for his trilogy to the publisher. He
had received death threats, but all the
sources I have read attribute his death to
a heart attack.
Larsson does have the last word about
his books from the voice of his hero,
Blomkvist, who explains after Salander's
trial, "...when it comes down to it, this
story is not primarily about spies and
secret government agencies; it's about
violence against women, and the men
who enable it."

My Stars ***
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Don't
gnash those pearly whites because you might
have to delay your plans. This could give the
Lucky Lamb a better perspective of what's
been done, and what still needs doing.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Scoring
financial bull's-eyes is easy for the focused
Bovine who knows the ins and outs of the mar-
ketplace. But even with your success record,
caution is still the watchword.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Watch that
tendency to over-romanticize a situation that
should be given closer scrutiny. Better to be
suspicious now and ask for an explanation, or
face a sad surprise later.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Bruised
self-confidence can make things difficult unless
you accept the fact that you have what it takes.
Ignore the critics and concentrate on believing
in yourself. Good luck.
LEO (July 23 to August 22)
Congratulations on what you've accomplished.
But this is no time to curl up for some serious
catnapping. Your rivals are probably already
working on plans to overtake your lead.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22)
Your adventurous side wants to play a more
dominant role this week, and you might want
to oblige. Try to arrange for some getaway time
with that special person.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22)
Taking logical approaches to pesky workplace
issues can help resolve even long-standing
problems. A shift in policy might catch you by
surprise. Be alert to signs of change.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21)
Your kindness and compassion are exactly
what are needed in dealing with an awkward

situation in the early part of the week. Share
the weekend fun with family and friends.
SAGITIARIUS (November 22 to
December 21) Keeping your focus straight
and true is a good way of getting your points
across. Save any variations for a later time. The
musical arts are important this weekend.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January
19) Reject advice to cut comers in reaching
your goal. Better to take a little more time to
do the job as you promised. You'll gain new
respect for your honesty and integrity.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18)
Don't allow a troublesome situation to grow
so big that it will be increasingly difficult to
deal with. The sooner you speak up, the sooner
everyone will be able to benefit.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20)
Confronting someone who is making a lot of
mistakes could be the kindest thing you can do
both for that person and for anyone who could
be adversely affected by the errors.
BORN THIS WEEK: You absolutely
glow when you see beautiful things, and every-
one around you is warmed by your light.

On Aug. 3, 1861, the last entry of the seri-
alized novel "Great Expectations" is published.
The book had been serialized in Dickens' liter-
ary circular, All the Year Round. The novel
tells the story of young Pip, a poor orphan who
comes to believe he will inherit a fortune.
OnAug. 6, 1911, Lucille Desiree Ball,
one of America's most famous redheads
and beloved comic actresses, is bom near
Jamestown, N.Y Ball starred with husband
Ricky Ricardo in television's "I Love Lucy"
from 1951 to 1957.
On Aug. 4, 1936, American Jesse Owens
wins gold in the long jump at the Summer

Olympics in Berlin. It was the second of four
gold medals Owens won in Berlin, as he firmly
dispelled German leader Adolf Hitler's notion
of the superiority of an Aryan "master race."
On Aug. 5, 1957, Philadelphia-based
"American Bandstand" goes national as the
show is beamed to 67 ABC affiliates across the
nation. The show included the famous segment
in which teenage studio guests rated the newest
records on a scale from 25 to 98 and offered
such criticisms as "It's got a good beat and you
can dance to it."
OnAug. 7, 1964, the United States
Congress overwhelming approves the Gulf of
Tonkin Resolution, giving President Lyndon
Johnson nearly unlimited powers to oppose
"communist aggression" in Southeast Asia. The
Johnson administration went on to use the reso-
lution as a pretext to begin heavy bombing of
North Vietnam in early 1965 and to introduce
U.S. combat troops in March 1965.
On Aug. 8, 1974, in an evening televised
address, President Richard Nixon announces
his intention to become the first president in
American history to resign. Impeachment pro-
ceedings were under way for his involvement
in the Watergate affair.
On Aug. 2, 1990, Iraqi forces invade
Kuwait, Iraq's tiny, oil-rich neighbor. Kuwait's
defense forces were rapidly overwhelmed, and
those that were not destroyed retreated to Saudi
Arabia. OnAug. 9, Operation Desert Shield,
the American defense of Saudi Arabia, began
as U.S. forces raced to the Persian Gulf.

It was British mathematician, historian
and philosopher Bertrand Russell who made
the following sage observation: "If there were
in the world today any large number of people
who desired their own happiness more than

they desired the unhappiness of others, we
could have paradise in a few years."
Do you know why camels are artiodac-
tyls, while humans aren't? It's because drom-
edaries have an even number of toes (two) on
each foot, while we have an odd number.
According to a poll conducted in the
United Kingdom, 80 percent of male college
freshmen and sophomores in that country have
never done a load of laundry in their lives.
At weddings here in the United States, it
is common for the bride to toss her bouquet to
determine who will be the next to be married.
At weddings in Finland the custom is a bit dif-
ferent, though the outcome is the same: There,
the bride traditionally wears a golden crown,
and at the reception she is blindfolded and spun
around. Then all the single girls in attendance
dance around her while the bride, still blind-
folded, tries to place the crown on one of them.
It's believed that the lucky girl who ends up
wearing the crown will be the next to wed.
It takes about 2.5 pounds of grapes to
make a single bottle of wine.
Ever wonder where the phrase "cool as a
cucumber" came from? It's actually an estab-
lished fact that the interior of a cucumber can
be up to 20 degrees cooler than the ambient air
temperature surrounding it.

"Any intelligent fool can make things big-
ger, more complex and more violent. It takes
a touch of genius -- and a lot of courage -- to
move in the opposite direction." -- Albert

Here are tips for long putts to get them
close to hole every time and occasionally
make them:
1. Read the green for slope and break.
Is it uphill, downhill or flat? Will the putt
curve in any direction and how much?
Once you have estimated how much the
putt will break, choose a spot you want
your ball to roll over. That is now your
new aiming point for the putt.
2. Use a three-practice swing system to
estimate the speed of the putt.
a. Make your first practice swing one
that you would think would make the ball
go way past the hole (too big).
b. Make your second practice swing
one that you think would make the ball go
only half of the way to the hole (too small).
c. Make your third and any other prac
tice swings one that would make the ball
go into the hole (just right).
d. Once you feel you have the right
amount of backswing and follow-through
step up to the putt and knock it in!4

Congress Baseball Tour Arrives In City By The Bay;
Great Food And Magnificent Sites

Georgia, Josh, Doug, Kelsey and Melanie Congress

Georgia, Josh and Kelsey Congress

by Doug and Josh Congress,
edited by Ed Frank
It's onward from Los Angeles to San
Francisco via the magnificent, winding
Highway 1 along the Pacific Coast.
Our first stop was the 60,000-sqaure-
foot Hearst Castle, the third largest resi-
dence in the United States that contains
56 bedrooms, 61 bathrooms and two
spectacular pools. It was here where
newspaper magnate William Randolph
Hearst entertained the rich and famous.
After 10 minutes, Josh was bored to
death as he never heard of Hearst, the
tour guide spoke with a thick accent and
there were too many rules such as no

gum chewing, no touching, etc. However,
I found the castle fascinating and could
have stayed there for hours.
Arriving in San Francisco, we met up
with wife Melanie and daughters Georgia
and Kelsey who had been vacationing
in Pacific Grove south of the City by
the Bay. Although Hearst Castle held
little interest for Josh, all three children
were spellbound with the tour of Alcatraz
Island, the once-famous maximum secu-
rity federal prison.
Starting with the frigid, windy boat
ride to the island and the great audio
that accompanies the tour, all of us were
enamored by the rock. Our first stop
after the tour was a rental store to get
the movie Escape from Alcatraz starring
Clint Eastwood.
But then it was back to baseball and
AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco
Giants. Opened in 2000, the park is
squeezed between downtown buildings
to the west and the San Francisco Bay

to the east. Within five minutes of tour-
ing the park, Josh said it is his second or
third favorite park.
The capacity is 42,000 and features
a panoramic view of the bay. Left field
also has an 80-foot-long Coca Cola bottle
and a huge oversized baseball glove. The
compact nature of AT&T Park provides
perfect viewing from any seat location.
And there is one other hugely impor-
tant fact: The concessions are far and
away the best in baseball. No other park
is even in the same galaxy. The world
famous garlic fries are fabulous -

chunks of garlic, butter and parsley are drizzled atop the crispy French fries.
The menu also includes clam chowder in famous Boudin sourdough bread bowls,
Willie McCovey BBQ pork and brisket and Ghirardelli hot chocolate.
The night game was a classic rivalry between the Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers.
Giants' fans claim the Dodgers are their biggest and most bitter rival. But it was not
even close to what we experienced at Dodger Stadium against the Yankees. In fact,
there were 5,000 empty seats for the game.
Nevertheless, we had a great time, ate a ton of food from the yummy concessions
and cheered the Giants to a poor 4-2 loss.
Not 20 minutes after the game ended, Josh and I were making our way back to
the hotel when we spotted, you guessed it, an In N' Out Burger. So we made our
obligatory stop, ordered a double-double and a couple of burgers for the girls.
We violated our own rules.

But with Melanie and the girls present, the majority vote was to forgo the Giants

Josh was not happy. His hot dog streak was broken, we had not purchased a team
magnet to affix to the back of the car and we had failed to get photos from the signifi-
cant vantage points of AT&T Park.
Despite Josh's disappointment, skipping the game was a great decision. We had
an awesome day touring the city... Fisherman's Wharf, the Crookedest Street in the
World, the Golden Gate Bridge, Sausalito and the restaurant Fish with the best fish
and chips and crab sub in the world. But it pained me to pay $25 for a sub. I will
never again complain about the $12 grouper sandwich at Grandma Dot's on Sanibel.

Skin Cancer Claims The Life Of Kaye
Cowher, A Gifted Athlete And Wife
Of Former Pittsburgh Steelers Coach
by Ed Frank
H ere in the sun-blessed, searing heat of Southwest
Florida, we have never combined a medical issue with
a sports issue. But the tragic death from skin cancer
last weekend of Kaye Cowher, the wife of former Pittsburgh
Steelers coach Bill Cowher, certainly drives home the danger
of exposure to the sun.
S Kaye Cowher was just 54 when she succumbed to her battle
with melanoma. She was a talented athlete in her own right who
worked to protect her family from the limelight of professional
Mrs. Cowher and her identical twin, Faye, both played bas-
ketball for North Carolina State in the 1970s where their teams went 21-3 and 29-5,
winning the inaugural Atlantic Coast Conference women's basketball title in 1978
ranking No. 9 nationally. They were among the first women to play college basketball
on a scholarship in the early days of Title IX.
It was there she met her future husband who played football.
Tall at 5-foot-11, she and her sister joined the Women's Professional Basketball
League where they played one season with the New York Stars and two with the New
Jersey Gems.
The athletic prowess of the Cowhers obviously was passed on to their three daugh-
ters, Meagan, Lauren and Lindsay, who also played high school basketball.
While Kaye was intensely private about her own life and that of her family, she
worked fervently for numerous charitable and civic causes in the Pittsburgh area and
in her home state of North Carolina where the family relocated when Bill retired from
She was particularly devoted to Family Resources, Inc., a nonprofit child abuse-
prevention agency based in Pittsburgh.
When the Cowhers retired to North Carolina in 2007, their parting gift to Family
Resources will be long remembered a new all-purpose basketball court and football
In Kaye's lengthy obituary in the Pitsburgh Post-Gazette, it was pointed out that
she championed her own identity as a pioneering female athlete and an advocate for
women's sports while raising three daughters who were gifted athletes themselves.

Her tragic death from skin cancer a deadly form of cancer that doesn't always
receive the wide attention as other types of cancer should serve as a wakeup call to
sun worshipers who ignore the perils of the sun.
Nowhere is that threat greater than here in the blazing Florida sun.
Former Miracle Matt Garza Tosses Tampa Bay's First No-Hitter
Right-hander Matt Garza, who started the 2006 baseball season here with the Fort
Myers Miracle and advanced all the way to the Major Leagues in that one year, hurled
the first no-hitter in Tampa Bay's history last Monday, a 4-0 victory over Detroit.
Garza compiled a 14-4, 1.99 ERA Minor League record in 2006 when he jumped
from Fort Myers to New Britain and then to Triple A Rochester before being called up
by the Minnesota Twins late in the season.
He was traded by the Twins later that year to Tampa Bay for a trio of players that
included outfielder Delmon Young.
Garza faced only 28 batters in Monday's gem, a single walk.
Seventeen-Year-Old Rookie Infielder Who Signed Record Contract Is
Now Playing Here for Gulf Coast Twins
Earlier this year we wrote about Miquel Sano, a gifted infielder from the Dominican
Republic, who received a record $3.1 signing bonus, the most ever paid by the
Minnesota Twins to a non-drafted rookie.
Sano participated in extended Spring Training and was recently assigned to the
rookie level Gulf Coast Twins who play here at the Lee County Sports Complex.
Originally signed as a shortstop, Sano was shifted to third base and was hitting
.288 in his first 14 games with the Gulf Coast Twins. His on base percentage was
.333, slugging percentage .500 and had eight RBIs with two home runs.
Miracle Drop Three of Four to Brevard County Last Weekend
Despite losing three of four games to the Brevard County Manatees last weekend,
the Fort Myers Miracle began this week just two games out of first place in the Florida
State League South Division.
After winning the series first game, the Miracle lost the next three to drop to 14-15
for the second half of the season.
The Miracle will be home this weekend at Hammond Stadium facing the Tampa
Yankees in a four-game series starting Saturday at 7:05 p.m. The first pitch Sunday is
1:05 p.m. and Monday and Tuesday games have a 7:05 p.m. start.
Tampa was 18-10 when the week began, just one game out of first place in the
FSL North.#

Will Power
It's Not The Money
Or Property They Fight Over
-by Craig R. Hersch, Florida Bar Board
Certified Wills, Trusts & Estates Attorney, CPA

was very close to
my great grand-
mother, whom I
called "Bubby." A
framed picture in
my home includes
her image along
with an 1890 silver
dollar. She told
me that her father
handed her a silver dollar bearing the
year of her birth when she arrived in
America. She hadn't seen him in many
years, as he had to save for her pas-
sage. Until my Bubby's death in 1976
we celebrated our birthdays together,
as ours were only one day apart on the
When she died that silver dollar was
invaluable to me. I was only 12 years
old, but I dearly wanted it to remember
her by. My sister, incidentally, has our
Bubby's soup spoon framed in a box. It
hangs proudly in my sister's dining room.
So you might find it interesting that in
my 20 years of practicing estate planning
law I rarely encounter siblings who fight
over a deceased parent's money or prop-
erty. Generally speaking, the very few
disputes I've refereed between siblings
involved tangible personal property items
like rings, watches, jewelry and other
items just like coins and soup spoons.
Don't underestimate the sentimental
value of an item that's been handed
down over the generations from father
to son or from mother to daughter. If

you have more than one son, you may
not want to assume that the eldest will
treasure granddad's watch. Mothers of
daughters and even granddaughters often
own a certain string of pearls, a diamond
brooch or a bracelet that has sentimental
value to one or more family members.
So if you own such items that you
would like to see passed down to a cer-
tain child or grandchild, the first course
of business is to find out whether he or
she wants it. It doesn't have to be the
main topic of conversation during a visit
or phone call, but at some opportune
moment it makes sense to confirm the
intended recipient is willing.
Don't take "let's not talk about this
now" as an answer, either. Many adult
children don't want to sound as if they
are awaiting your imminent demise. An
appropriate response might be, "I intend
to hold onto my (insert item name here)
for quite some time. I just want to make
sure that if I leave it to you that this is
something you would treasure as I have.
Or perhaps there's something else that
you find more valuable sentimentally."
Be careful here. I've had some occa-
sions where more than one child pro-
claims that he was "promised" an item by
their father or mother. If you don't intend
to promise that certain item, but are
merely talking about it, make that clear.
Once you've decided who is to receive
these tangible personal property items,
then it is time to make a list. Florida law
actually gives us an easy mechanism

Substitute Teacher Orientation
The Lee County Association of Professional Substitute Teachers and Lee
County Public Schools will hold the annual Substitute Orientation at Island
Coast High School, 2125 DeNavarra Parkway, Cape Coral. The event is set
for 8 a.m. on Thursday, August 19.
Substitutes will hear from district staff, school board members and the superin-
tendent of schools. There will be various workshops offered for those in attendance,
including PeopleSoft and SmartBoards. All Lee County Public Schools substitute teach-
ers are encouraged to attend.#

Shredding Day Is This Saturday
The 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 statements, credit cards receipts, old checks, income
tax returns or anything that contains personal information, while watching the profes-
sionals 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 requested. All proceeds
go to The Community House operating fund.#

to make a list of our tangible personal
property outside of our will or trust, and
to easily amend it without having to visit
your attorney.
So long as our will or trust mentions
the list properly under the Florida statute,
(this would be the job of you working
with your estate planning attorney) then
you may create a list and it need only be
signed and dated. The list does not have
to be witnessed. If you should choose to
update the list, sign and date it again. I
suggest providing a copy of the current
list to your estate planning attorney so
that he may retain a current copy in your
One other note of caution if you
give an item away during your lifetime,
remove the item from your list. Also, if
you intend for the value of the gift to be
deducted from the total value of what
that beneficiary receives from your estate
or trust, then you should mention this
to your attorney to ensure he includes
appropriate language within your will or
trust documents.

What happens if you don't have such
a list? Then it is typically up to your
personal representative and/or trustee
to decide who is to receive which tan-
gible personal property items, or which
ones should be sold or auctioned. This is
where the disputes may arise. The child
with the unfortunate task of deciding
the fate of sentimental items might find
themselves in the unfortunate position of
wanting something, but it might look like
self dealing if they take it when another
beneficiary also expresses a desire to
acquire that same item.
Creating such a list can mean more
than leaving thousands of dollars to your
loved ones. Although my Bubby didn't
have much in the form of monetary
wealth when she died, she left me a real
treasure, one that can never be replaced.

Paperbeads under construction

Paperbeads completed
In addition to paper, you need scis-
sors and some type of glue (bottled craft
glue or glue stick, and something long,
round and skinny (a skewer, straw, pencil,
toothpick how thick your object is will
determine the bead's hole size).
Now cut strips of paper. Start with one
inch wide and maybe six or eight inches
long. Depending on the thickness of
your paper, you will want to play around
with lengths. Taper some of the cuts and
make long, skinny triangles. Different
shaped paper strips will make different
shaped beads.
Lay a strip on a flat surface and posi-
tion your rolling tool about an inch from
the wide end. Begin to roll the paper
over the tool. You can add a bit small bit
of glue if you need it to roll, but don't get
glue on the tool or the bead won't easily
slide off.

When you reach the end of the paper,
dab some glue so your end is secure and
you bead is finished. Slide your bead off
the rolling tool and start another.
Experiment with different shapes, sizes
and lengths. You can paint your finished
beads by applying a gloss finish with
decoupage medium, and embellish them
with rhinestones. String them on some
stretch cording or string and you have

the winning bidder

ate and name a Doc
Ford's signature drink.
That drink is featured si l ca

Children's Hospital.
Bidding is high with Bull on the Beach charity drink
stiff competition.
The 2010 winning bid belongs to Randy and Charlotte Hockensmith, of the
Hockensmith Cattle Company, who have volunteered to match donations at the end
of the year.
The Hockensmiths, along with their friends, created Bull on the Beach Where the
Bull Never Ends. Their description is enough to make your mouth water. The special
concoction combines Premium Cherry Jack Rum, Florida orange juice, pineapple juice

What's Hot,

What's Not
by Marcia Feeney
Isn't it great fun
to learn a bit
a about what's new
S in decorating? Each
year new color
J and design trends
abound, and most
of my clients are
curious as to where
these new ideas
Did you know that most of our home
furnishing design trends actually follow

design trends in the woman's fashion
industry? So what you see walking down
the red carpet today might be translated
into one of the hottest design trends of
Simple, Clean Lines Abound
Typically, we see a bit more of a tradi-
tional design style when we talk about a
transitional design. Today, this transitional
design style tends to have a more modern
contemporary influence rather than tra-
ditional. Look for cleaner, straighter lines
in upholstered and occasional furniture.
We also see a trend to smaller scaled
furniture. And many of today's new
occasional tables tend to feature straight
rather than curved lines.
Texture Continues To Take
Center Stage

Whether you chose to display your
love of texture in your upholstery -
leather, ultra suede, or micro fiber, or
in your wall art, with dramatic wrought
iron designs, texture continues to add
drama to any decor. Area rugs in various
styles, shapes and designs help add visual
interest to hard-wood or tile floors. And
draperies deliciously designed with silks,
and embroidered patterns continue to be
all the rage.
Brass or silver toned nail head trim
instantly adds drama when outlining the
wood frames of many of today's furni-
ture. Appliques, embossing, leather pip-
ing, beaded fringe and dramatic tassels
and tiebacks continue their everlasting
Paisley Prints Pizzazz
We've seen years when the trends
have gone from large dramatic florals, to
small geometric designs. One of the hot-
test print styles for the coming year will
be paisley. This beautifully ornate pattern
was commonly used for 19th century
shawls manufactured in the town of
Paisley, Scotland. And the Scots got the
idea from Kashmir shawls made in India
in the 1800s. Filled with myriad gorgeous
colors, paisley designs add excitement
and pizzazz to any decor.
Grey The New Beige
When it comes to color trends, we'll
be seeing a more glamorous and dramat-
ic color palette this year. Grey is definitely
the new beige, and purple continues to
be a hot accent color.

tor on Sanibel. She can be reached at

Peak Shifting
by Laura Zocki
Puerto, LCEC
Public Relations
T would you
y like to help
Keep elec-
tric rates stable?
You can help by
simply altering the
time of day you
use electricity. This
will reduce the amount of electricity
your power provider purchases during
peak demand periods, which results
in increased costs to the utility. Power
supply costs are naturally higher dur-
ing peak periods and, although LCEC
residential customers pay a flat rate
regardless of the time of consumption,
the increased rate that the utility pays is
often reflected in utility rates.
In Southwest Florida, the peak time
during the summer is between 5 and 7
p.m. when families return home from
work and begin to clean house, cook din-
ner and wash laundry. Nearly everyone
in Southwest Florida is doing this at the
same time, and the demand for electric-
ity skyrockets. During the summertime,
avoid using large electricity-consuming
appliances between 5 and 7 p.m.
Here are a few simple ways to do this:
Set the dishwasher to wash in the
middle of the night while everyone is
Set the timer on the pool pump to
complete its cycle by 5 p.m.
Wash clothes after 7 p.m.
Set a timer on the water heater so
it only heats water when it is needed for
showers and baths.#

Nursing Program
In Fort Myers
Rasmussen College announces
the launch of an Associate's
Degree in Professional Nursing
program through the School of Nursing
at its campus in Fort Myers, which will
soon celebrate its two-year anniver-
sary. Approved by the Florida Board
of Nursing, the degree program fills a
market need for board-approved regis-
tered nurse (RN) programs, as students
nationwide are experiencing long wait-
ing lists for program admission and the
national demand for nursing profession-
als grows.
According to the Bureau of Labor
Statistics, registered nurses constitute
the largest group of health care workers
in the United States, and employment
in the field is expected to increase by
22 percent through 2018, resulting in
more than 500,000 new jobs. A Nursing
Management Aging Workforce Survey by
the Bernard Hodes Group indicates that
thousands of nurses are expected to retire
soon, further increasing the need for edu-
cational options that deliver programs for
students interested in becoming profes-
sional nurses.
"An improving economy and industry
that continues to change due to health
care reform will soon create an upsurge
in demand for professional nurses. This
trend is particularly evident in Florida,"

Rasmussen College Regional Dean of
Nursing Juli Daniels said. "To meet this
critical need for qualified and well-trained
nurses, Rasmussen College has developed
a rigorous, high, tech, high-touch pro-
gram that will significantly increase the
number of registered professional nurses
in the southwest region of Florida."
"Growing up in Fort Myers, the son of
a nurse, and now raising a family here,
I know the incredible value nurses bring
to our community and the opportunities
this degree program will provide to our
local graduates," Rasmussen College Fort
Myers Campus Director Eric Whitehouse
said. "We are very excited to add to the
fabric of nursing educators in Southwest
The Rasmussen College Associate's
Degree in Professional Nursing program
combines academic principles and practi-
cal skills development to prepare students

Got A Problem?
Dr. Connie Is In
by Constance
Q: I have been
a smoker for 25
years. While I have
never tried to quit,
is quitting smoking
statistically harder
than quitting other
A: In my train-
ing, I was told that
smoking is the toughest addiction to
break. However, millions of smokers have
broken the habit and are healthier today
for stopping.
Smoking tobacco has a greater impact
on life span than socioeconomic sta-
tus. A recent study shows that smoking
increases mortality irrespective of social
class and gender, i.e., well-off smokers die
earlier than poor non-smokers. Smoking
cancels out the life expectancy advantage
women have over men, so that women
smokers die earlier than male non-smok-
ers. Smoking is the leading, preventable
cause of death in women, per the 2001
Surgeon General report.
Research also shows that the life
expectancies of ex-smokers were closer to
those of people who had never smoked
than those of smokers, emphasizing
the benefits of quitting smoking even in
middle age.
More deaths are caused each year by
tobacco use than by all deaths from illegal

drug use, alcohol use, motor vehicle inju-
ries, suicides and murders combined.
It is not too late to stop smoking if you
truly want to quit. There are several avail-
able techniques to stop and support to
remain a non-smoker.

health therapist, certified hypno-
therapist, life coach, author and public

August Is
Adoption Month
There is a great opportunity to
help homeless animals beginning
August 1. Lee County Domestic
Animal Services (LCDAS) will kick off
a month-long adoption promotion,
Awesome August Adoptions, to find
new homes for its shelter pets during
the current difficult economic times. The
adoption fee for puppies and kittens will
be only $25 and all adult pets will be
free with an approved application.
The shelter has experienced a drop
in adoptions attributed to the economy.
However, there are still individuals and
families looking for a new pet.
"We want to eliminate any reason
someone would have to acquire a pet
anywhere but at a shelter," says Donna
Ward, LCDAS director. "We have every
type of breed, size or age you could want
including many pure bred animals," she
adds. The agency firmly believes that
with the selection available at the shelter
and the cost being just $25 or free, there
is no better place to get your next best
To further sweeten this deal the
adoption fee includes $500 worth of
veterinary services. All pet receive spay
or neuter surgery, age appropriate vac-
cinations, rabies and county license (for
pets three months and older), heartworm
test (for dogs six months and older), feline
aids and leukemia test (for cats), flea treat-
ment, worming, microchip ID, 10-day
health guarantee and a bag of Science
Diet pet food.
