Sanibel Historical
Museum And
Village Re-Opens
When the Sanibel Historical
Museum and Village re-opens
on Wednesday, November 3, it
will be entering a new era. Although the
village looks much the same as it has
during the past 26 years, it has entered
the technical age.
Over the summer, audio/visual
enhancements were installed that will
allow visitors to more fully explore the
story of Sanibel from its formation and
the arrival of the Calusa and Spanish, to
the pioneer families who settled on the
island following the Civil War.
Each historic building now has one or
more audio "stations." Visitors may hear
recordings which illuminate past life on
a barrier island where the sea and land
helped to support a small population of
hearty farmers and fisherfolk.
Monitors are also set up for viewing a
series of changing audio/visual presenta-
The historical museum will be open
to the public on Wednesday through
Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Also new this year will be a daily,
docent guided tour of all the buildings.
This tour will begin at the Rutland House
at 11 a.m. on each day the museum is
open. Otherwise, visitors are welcome
to tour on their own with the aid of the
audiovisual programs or listen to a
general overview of Sanibel history by a

The 1926 post office
trained docent and then tour the village.
"We are adapting to the needs of our
visitors. Some people enjoy touring the
museum with a knowledgeable docent,
while others who have limited time, will
opt to explore on their own," said Alex
Werner, president of the museum's board
of directors. "Either way, our mission
remains the same - to preserve and share
Sanibel history."
Museum archivist Mary McLaughlin
has planned several changing exhibits

for the coming season. A Beary Merry
Christmas will ber featured during the hol-
idays, while the popular quilt show, which
brings admirers from all over the country,
will return in February and March. This
year's show will also include the raffle of
a special quilt.
Gift Shop Manager Paula Newton is
always on the lookout for unique gifts
and souvenirs that are exclusive to the
museum. This year she will unveil some
new handcrafted treasures by artists Jim

and Rose Prestigiacomo, Gisela Dimandl,
Dorothy Nichols, Carolyn Queisser and
Luc Century. Stop by the Old Bailey
General Store to see what is new in the
The Sanibel Historical Museum and
Village opened in 1984 and is comprised
of seven historic buildings from the late
1800s to the early 1900s. The Rutland
House, School House, Burnap Cottage,
Miss Charlotta's Tea Room, the 1926
post office, the Bailey's General Store
and Morning Glories Cottage were saved
and brought to the village through the
generosity of many volunteers and island-
ers who wanted to preserve Sanibel his-
The village's setting around the
Heritage Garden provides a true "step
back" in time experience and allows
visitors to picture what Sanibel was like
when there was no air-conditioning and
mosquitoes and no-see-ums kept all but
the most determined souls away.
Each building contains exhibits and
displays pertaining to fishing, agriculture,
commerce and island life.
The Sanibel Historical Museum and
Village is located at 950 Dunlop Road
(next to BIG ARTS). Admission is $5 for
adults 18 and over. Children and mem-
bers are admitted free.

It's the fourth year SWFAS has coor-
dinated the talent show, which will be
from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. at First Christian
Church, 2061 McGregor Boulevard, in
Fort Myers.
There is no admission to attend the

Three cash prizes of $75 each will be
awarded for each category (elementary,
middle and high school).
"We have 19 acts that will be compet-

A highlight of the talent show will be a
group performance of We Are the World
at the show's conclusion.
"Our goal is to provide teens with a
fun, safe venue to express themselves
without using alcohol, tobacco and other
drugs," del Valle said.
In addition to the talent show, the
afternoon will include a silent auction of
themed baskets such as movies, sports,
and bath-body products.
The Every Child Is a Star Talent Show
offers the community an alternative event
for children that doesn't include drugs

i A* A i / \ I n.

At the November 10 regular
board meeting, the Board of
Commissioners of the Captiva
Erosion Prevention District has an
opportunity to approve the accep-
tance of three beach and shoreline
grants from the Lee County Tourist
Development Council.
A grant of $34,749.00 was awarded
to CEPD to fund a performance survey
and engineering report of the 2005/06
beach nourishment project. The survey
and report provide information necessary
to plan, design, and optimize the next
nourishment project in 2013/14.
A second grant of $31,200.00 will
enable the CEPD to expand the sand
borrow area and modify the pipeline
corridor used to put sand on the beach.
Expanding the borrow area will provide
a source of sand for future nourishment
projects. A new corridor will enable the
pipelines length to be decreased, thus
optimizing resources and reducing the
cost of future beach projects.
Finally, a grant of $12,066.00 will be

VViTn variance
by Anne Mitchell
hearing no complaints or com-
ments from neighbors of Limpet
Drive property owners Dewaine
D. and Julia A. King, the Sanibel
Planning Commission on Tuesday unan-
imously approved a variance for a new
boat dock and lift for the couple.
It requires a variance because it will
encroach into the minimum required
setbacks, said Roy Gibson, city planner.
Their dock sits across the corner. The
Kings are in a hardship situation, Gibson
said, because their home is at the termi-
nus of a canal in Shell Harbor,
They have a 26-foot boat with twin
engines, according to Joe Lutz, who rep-
resented them. They plan to replace part
of the deteriorating concrete pad with a
wood dock platform and add a lift.
Commissioners Phillip Marks and Paul
Reynolds remarked that the new dock
and such a large boat will cause conges-
tion for neighbors who have boats.

Chairman Mike Valiquette said in
these cases, neighbors are usually happy

to work work things out among them-

months to keep its food pantry stocked, as a result of increased demand from
islanders in need. The upcoming holiday season is a particularly hard time for
many island families and in true Sanibel community spirit, five island shopping cen-
ters have got together with their merchants and set up a Fish Food Drive.
Periwinkle Place and The Royal Shell Company-operated centers, Tahitian
Gardens, The Village Shops, Olde Sanibel Shoppes and Town Center, will begin the
drive on November 1.
Thepublic is asked to drop off non-perishable food items when they shop at any of
these shopping centers and place food items in the baskets and boxes provided.
To encourage these food donations, each of the centers will be offering donors a
special thank you.
FISH relies on community support to fund all programs and accepts unopened,
unexpired food items which are delivered directly to island families in need. The Walk-
in Center is at 1630 Periwinkle Way, Unit B, Sanibel (next to Pfeiffer Realty Group)
and is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., phone 472 4775.0

Captiva Erosion
Prevention District

submitted by Mike Mullins
V ote your pocket book, vote
Captiva voters decide an impor-
tant referendum on Captiva Erosion
Prevention District (CEPD) nourishment
bonds. If you have the facts, a Yes vote is
inevitable. Support the referendum choice
and you support the overwhelming choice
for the most time tested and cost effective
"benefits analysis" approach to appor-
tionment of costs. Why inevitable? Read
on, and/or email mcml248@gmail.com
requesting details.
The referendum authorizes bonds up
to $15MM. Just as importantly, the ref-
erendum sets in motion Benefits Analysis
(BA) methods of costs apportionment.
Any registered voter who does not own
property has everything to gain and noth-
ing to lose: all the benefits without any
of the costs. This method is overwhelm-
ingly advantageous to a large number
of property owners versus the alterna-
tive approaches CEPD might yet have
to take. The bonds (or loan equivalent)
support the BA method saving material
sums, particularly for owners who are
registered voters, year round residents
and owners of single family homes and
homesteaded condominium owners; say-
ings in the thousands for many. A Yes
means nourishment is indisputable and

to be funded via authorized bonds. For
typical owners, this likely will save 40 to
75 percent as compared to some alterna-
tives, such as paying with Ad Valorem
Tax (AVT) assessments.
Where does your property fit
in? You are welcome to email for more
details; but, you should already have
received, in the mail, preliminary/tenta-
tive assessment range(s) based upon
benefits analysis. Alternatively, should
the referendum fail, AVT based project
budgets could potentially occur. Owners
may calculate the potential ad valorem
tax and contrast with the higher end of
preliminary assessments range from the
CEPD mailer.
How does one calculate own-
ers AVT? Some background, since 1
mill generates $1 per $1,000 of taxable
value, 11.85 mills (approximate millage
needed to levy $15MM in taxes) gener-
ates $11,850 per $1,000,000 of taxable
value. To find possible AVTs, just multiply
your property's taxable value (from your
TRIM notice) by 11.85 mills and divide
by 1,000. CEPD is limited to 10 mills of
ad valorem tax annually, so this would
have to be collected over the next two or
three years. This calculation will provide
the AVT amount to contrast with maxi-
mum preliminary assessments received in
CEPD mailers. Most of us need to pre-
pare to be shocked!
Consider a typical example: A
single family, non-beach home, "tax-
able" value of $1,273,406 (slightly above
Captiva mean). CEPD's economist esti-
mated the maximum benefits analysis
assessed on this property at $3,768; to



be paid as early as 2014 or via install-
ments thereafter; this depends upon a
passed referendum. But, if the referen-
dum fails, this property could be assessed
about $15,000 instead of $3,768 (based
on taxable value alone.) This typical prop-
erty could be close to four times more
than the referendum approved benefits
analysis assessment alternative. A Yes
vote would indeed prove beneficial to
this typical owner's interests. This typical
owner could save 75 percent of the alter-
native cost if we pass the referendum.
As mentioned, most such single family
property owners are similarly advantaged
through benefits analysis. Benefits analy-
sis effectively determines project costs are
more heavily apportioned to those con-
sidered to be receiving the most benefits
of nourishment: commercial properties,
non-homesteaded condominium proper-
ties and some others. Benefits analysis
requires that properties considered to
benefit most, are assessed most. This is
because some are considered to benefit
from nourishment through greater storm
protection and/or recreational benefits.
Many others are considered to benefit
less, so they pay a lesser rate.
Let me emphasize, a Yes vote on the
referendum represents a voter's choice
for the bond and approval of benefits
analysis, a Yes means voters make the

Free Guided
Walks At Beaches

And Shorelines
ee County Parks & Recreation
invites visitors and residents to
explore nature through the follow-
ing guided walks at beaches and shore-
Barrier Islands Guided Walk
- Tuesday, November 2, 9, 16, 23,
and 30, 9:30 to 11 a.m. and Friday,
November 5, 12, 19, and 26, 1 to 2:30
Visit Bowditch Point Park to learn the
importance of the barrier islands, their
unique ecosystem and how they protect
the mainland. Explore the beachfront
tropical hardwoods, coastal scrub, and
wetland plant communities. Program
is free with $2 per hour paid parking.
Bowditch Point Park is located at 50
Estero Boulevard, Fort Myers Beach.
Bird Patrol Tours - Saturday,
November 13, 9 to 11 a.m.
Bunche Beach is known as one of
the best birding sites in Lee County. Join
Lee County Bird Patrol volunteers as
they share information on the contribu-
tion birds make to the delicate balance
of our ecosystems. Bring binoculars, sun
protection, shoes that can get wet, bug
spray and drinking water. Meet at the
picnic tables on the beach. This is a free
walk and parking is $1 per hour. Bunche
Beach is located at 18201 John Morris
Road. To find out more information on
birding visit www.birdpatrol.org
Low Tide Loafing at Sunset -
Tuesday, November 23, 4:30 to 5:30
Join a naturalist and leisurely explore
the mud flats to see what mysteries the
low tide reveals while watching a spec-
tacular Florida sunset. Bring your camera,

apportionment decisions. A No vote
represents a non-decision; the voters
merely bounce the decision back to
the CEPD board process to assess ad
valorem taxes for the project; or, to pos-
sibly make no decision while waiting for
the inevitable storm emergencies. To not
pass this referendum financially disad-
vantages Captiva's economy and many
single family home property owners and
homesteaded condominium owners men-
tioned above; a No vote negatively affects
property values and we all may lose the
many advantages to be gained with the
lead time of a passed referendum: signifi-
cantly lower project costs, better funding
sources, better planning, more competi-
tive bidding and grant opportunities.
Hopefully, you will agree that the
overwhelming choice is Yes on the ref-
erendum (implying Yes for the benefits
analysis method as well). The alternative
ad valorem basis has not been used since
earlier in the 1980s; the emergency
$15MM nourishment alternative has
never been used. Such a Yes vote on the
referendum puts you and other Captiva
affirmative voters in very good company;
this approach has been previously and
overwhelmingly chosen by voters and
successfully employed in the last three of
three beach nourishment projects since
the 1980s.A

sun protection, shoes that can get wet,
bug spray, and drinking water. Days and

Family Donates 22 Inches Of Hair
by Anne Mitchell
T he Olson Family from
Massachusetts has made a
tradition of growing their
hair so they can donate it to a
good cause.
The latest to be shorn are
Paul Olsen and his daughter
Michaela, 12, who went to the
Sanibel Beauty Salon recently to
donate their locks. Dad handed
over 13 inches of his dark, wavy 4
hair and Michaela had nine inch- f 1l
es of her blonde tresses snipped.
Their hair will go to Pantene
Beautiful Lengths that makes
and gives wigs to women under-
going cancer treatments.
Paul and his wife Colleen and
their daughters Michaela and Michaela Olson and her dad Paul Olson with their
Haley,14, are pros in hair dona- long hair
"They have been in many
times over the past few years," said MaryAnne Banta, salon owner. "Paul has donated
three times with us, Michaela two times and Haley has had hers cut once with us and
once in Boston, which is a total of seven haircuts for the family... so far!" That's four
times to Locks of Love and three times to Pantene Beautiful Lengths.
Pantene Beautiful Lengths encourages women and men to grow, cut, and donate
their hair to make real hair wigs for women who have lost their hair due to cancer
treatments. In order to make the most beautiful, realistic and durable wigs, donated
hair must meet certain requirements.
Donated hair must be a minimum of eight inches long (measure hair from just
above the elastic band of the ponytail to the end). Hair should be freshly washed and
completely dry, without any styling products. It may be colored with vegetable dyes,
rinses and semi-permanent dyes but it cannot be bleached. Permanently colored or
chemically treated hair cannot be more than five percent gray.

Paul Olson holds up the 13 inches of hair he donated and Michaela shows nine inches of
her blonde hair. Center is Deena Banta, their hair stylist at the Sanibel Beauty Salon.
It takes at least six ponytails to make a Pantene Beautiful Lengths wig; in general,
each ponytail comes from a different person and is a different color. Even though
some hair colors may look similar, including gray hair, each is completely unique.
For a realistic-looking wig that has consistent color throughout, donated ponytails
must be processed and then dyed to the same shade. It is critical for each ponytail
to absorb dyes at the same rate in order to create wigs of consistent, natural-looking
color. Gray hair, as well as some chemically-treated or permanently-colored hair, does
not absorb dye at the same rate as other types of hair. It is much harder to color and,
once colored, fades more quickly. O

Calahan, standing
On October 11 five members of the Sanibel-Captiva Lions completed the
necessary certification by Lion Dr. Norma Callahan and can now perform
diabetes blood glucose screening.
They join three additional Lions whose training includes a background of the dis-
ease, diabetes nutrition and hands-on training for the strict procedures used in the
blood screening process to protect both the screener and the screening subject.
"Surgical gloves must be changed for every person and hand sanitizer used to mini-
mize the spread of infection and blood born diseases," said Lion Tom Rothman.
The Lions' mission is to "eliminate preventable blindness" and diabetic retinopathy
leading to blindness, which can be a consequence of uncontrolled diabetes.

16 ISLAND SUN - OCTOBER 29, 2010


Guest speaker Leonard Kachebonaho

submitted by Shirley Jewell
Back in the late '90s Hillary Clinton
wrote a book titled It Takes a
Village to Raise a Child. Maybe
you don't need to have a village to
raise a child but it sure helps if you
have many people trying to focus on an
objective, working together, and sup-
porting that effort.

Last Friday, the Sanibel-Captiva
Rotary Club's guest speaker represented
an organization that is a prime example
of how mountains can be moved with
the aid of support organizations and
individuals. Leonard Kachebonaho from
Karagwe, Tanzania has been visiting the
U.S., connecting with partner groups
and donors with an impressive Power
Point presentation on the progress an
organization named Kaderes is making
in his country. The mission of Kaderes is
"To capacitate the Karagwe community
to fight against poverty through facilita-
tion of health, water and local economic
activities in a sustainable way."
The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary has
sponsored a roof rain harvest tank at a
primary school providing clean and safe
water for over 2,000 kids. Kaderes wish-
es to see an empowered community of
Karagwe District in which people effec-
tively manage their own lives. The main
objectives are: to facilitate the community
members to get proper health, water and
sanitation services, to facilitate Karagwe
community members to get a fair price
for their agricultural produce, to empower
women and youth groups to improve
and strengthen their income-generating
Kaderes is working in three main
areas of development: water, health, and
microfinance. It has built 25 water tanks
in three years, tanks that provide clean,
easily accessible water. Health clinics and
health centers have and are being built
and microfinance centers in rural villages.
Peasants and the impoverished have

the opportunity to invest and save their
money for the future of their family.
Karagwe Coffee is a commercial
entity of Kaderes, which is dedicated
to assisting the peasants of Karagwe in
receiving a fair price for the agriculture.
In Karagwe - a district on the western
side of Tanzania - the staff of Kaderes,
a Tanzanian NGO (non-government
organization), tries to educate and unite
the local farmers to ensure that they get
a better price for their coffee, bananas
and beans. Although loans are avail-
able with support of the Dutch funding
organization; receiving a micro credit is
good, but what does this loan bring you
if you can't sell your coffee beans at a
fair price? Because most people living in
this district are farming, their source of
income is irregular. During harvesting, a
lot of money comes in, but outside the
harvesting season all the farmers struggle
to make ends meet. As a result, from this
cycle, the price the farmers get for their
coffee beans during harvesting season is
very low, because there is a big supply.
During harvesting season, the farmers
get approximately 0.12 Euro per kilo-
handpicked coffee beans. Three months
later, they can get up to 0.40 Euro per
kilo! However, because the farmers need
money to support their families and to
pay their workers who helped them pick
the coffee beans, most of them can't
afford to wait to sell their coffee beans.
They would rather sell their beans for
dump prices than wait longer for a source
of income. To change this situation,
Kaderes provides the farmers with micro

loans. This helps the farmers overcome
the periods of no income and enables
them to wait with the selling of their
coffee beans until the prices have gone
up. Once the coffee beans are sold for a
good price, the farmers can easily pay of
their loans and sometimes even receive
extra profit.
In order to achieve its goals, Kaderes
has been reaching out for financial
assistance to international NGOs spe-
cializing in the areas in which Kaderes
is most dedicated. Currently, the main
partners of Kaderes are Direct Relief
International and HIVOS. Kaderes is also
a strong partner with Global Partners for
Development, which supports health and
water projects. Rotary clubs across the
U.S. are also involved, along with many
private donors.
A note of sadness for the Sanibel-
Captiva Rotary Club; long-time and active
club member Dick Aldrich was in the hos-
pital in serious condition from a sudden
heart stoppage last Thursday, but mem-
bers held hope for recovery. Sadly, Dick
passed away that afternoon. We will miss
seeing him at the registration desk with
that sly smile and dry sense of humor. So
long friend.
The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club
meets at 7 a.m., every Friday morning
at the Blue Giraffe at Periwinkle Place,
Sanibel. If you would like further infor-
mation regarding the Sanibel Rotary or
Rotary International, call 337-1099.0

Periwinkle Park Bird Lady Returns

Dick Muench and Libby Baird surrounded by bird lovers during Baird's presentation of
some of the birds that live in the park
by Anne Mitchell
Libby Baird, the Bird Lady of Periwinkle Park, will be back giving her bird talks
Monday, November 1.
"So many people have been asking about her," said Dick Muench, owner of
the trailer park and keeper of the many birds and animals in the park. "She was not
feeling good last year and she had to go home. Many people missed her and they sent
her emails and cards," he said.
Baird has been on a cruise, but will be back in her winter home this weekend -
ready to introduce all the parrots to anyone who shows up for her 10 a.m. presenta-
tion every day except Sunday.
"She loves the birds," said Muench, and he believes the birds enjoy their interaction
with the public. People get to hold them as Baird, a former schoolteacher, explains
their habits and feeding and how to take care of them.
There are about 20 parrots and all get their time in the spotlight, starting with the
small ones and working up to the macaws and other large birds.
All are welcome to attend. Periwinkle Park is at 119 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel.0

plants in their daily life. Long before
recorded history people used plants as
potions and medicines.
Babylonian cuneiform tablets and
Egyptian papyrus scrolls describe medici-
nal properties of various plants 4,000
years ago. Plants have been and are still
used for food, shelter, medicine, clothing,
poisons, dyes and in hunting and religious
ceremonies. Many modern classes of

therapy agents were originally derived
from plant material and later synthesized

CROW Case Of The Week:

Burrowing Owls
by Brian Johnson
O n September
, received a
call from the owner
S of Pet Kingdom in
Fort Myers to say a
wild burrowing owl
had been dropped
Soff at their store.
Dr. Amber
McNamara had
no history to go on, but could easily see
what the problem was: fractures of the
major and minor metacarpal bones in the
right wrist area. There was a scab present
and the wound looked roughly two days
old. The 104-gram owl was a bit thin but
reasonably alert.
Staff gave their patient calcium supple-
ments, the Chinese herb Body Sore and
the pain medication Meloxicam, and put
a paper tape bandage to stabilize the site.
"Well, he chewed off that bandage in
no time!" said Dr. Amber.
On Day 2 they cleaned the wound and
applied Golden Yellow ointment. Since
the wound appeared to be healing well,
they put on a heavier wrap and then left
him alone for a couple days. As they
would not need to perform surgery, the
best thing they could offer this high-stress
bird was peace and quiet.
Staff set him up with a cardboard box
as a hiding place, and the owl ate about
two mice and 10 to 20 crickets per day.

Burrowing owl

"Burrowing owls don't like to be han-
dled at all or for us to fuss with them,"
said Dr. Amber. "He spent most of his
time standing on the top of the box. He
was very quiet, but would scream like
crazy if you came close to him. All in all,
they are great rehab patients."
The little raptor exhibited a significant
wing droop for about one week. After
two weeks staff transferred him to the

outdoor Burrowing Owl cage, where he
joined another owl in residence.
"By the end of a month here at
CROW he was flying, hovering and
maneuvering spot on," said Dr. Amber.
"Really amazing."
As the release date neared, CROW
had to figure out where to return the
creature. They had zero information
about his original home, and there are

The burrowing owl made a full recovery
no burrowing owl populations on Sanibel
Island so they could not release him here.
"We consulted with Ruth Parks of
Cape Coral Friends of Wildlife," said Dr.
Amber. "She has a map of burrows, and
she was able to find an unoccupied bur-
row for us. They are a wonderful network
of volunteers who monitor the nests and
provide us with invaluable information."
On October 15 CROW took him to

Kayakers on Buck Key for Monofilament Madness
S anibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation began the battle to preserve Buck Key
in 1970. By the year 2000 with the help of U.S. Fish and Wildlife, Trust for
Public Lands, the State of Florida and the Captiva Civic Association all but 10
acres of this island was preserved for wildlife.
On Tuesday, October 19, eleven Monofilament Madness volunteers boarded kayaks
donated by Captiva Kayak to rid the mangroves of monofilament line that can trap
and kill wildlife. The tide was high so better to reach the fishing line caught higher in
the trees. Everyone returned satisfied they had saved wildlife from a horrible demise.
SCCF thanks all the volunteers and especially Barb and Greg of Captiva Kayak at

Time For
Winter Tactics
by Capt.
S-. Matt Mitchell
, ." ast week was
S|he first time
SL . * since last win-
S' ter I started taking
live shrimp out on
S A- every trip again.
., A. Sure, I'm still catch-
. ing live pinfish and
shiners, but when
fishing has been
a little slow, a live
hand-picked shrimp often gets the job
done when nothing else will. As a result of
the shrimp we really caught a great mixed
bag of fish in the bay last week.
The last few mornings I started to get
that wintertime vibe out on the water.
There has been a little chill in the air first
thing in a morning and the humity had
dropped, but the air and water tempera-
ture are still far from the cooler tempera-
tures we will experience in a month or so.
The minus low tides brought by that
huge full moon along with catching
sheepshead on live shrimp are all signs
that winter is close. Before you know

it we will be seeing white pelicans, and
live shrimp will be the bait of choice for
inshore fishing.
Fishing along the beaches continues
to be good and is the best action around.
Fishing around diving birds was an easy
way to keep the rods bent this week.
Areas on the inside and outside of the
passes were good places to look for may-
hem. Species in the riotous mix included
Spanish mackerel, ladyfish, jacks, blue
runners and bluefish. Edges of the sand-
bars outside the passes at both ends of the
island were loaded with feeding fish.
These fish are feeding on the millions
of small glass minows and shiners that
are part of the bait migration. Match the
size of jigs and spoons to the size of the
bait that the fish are feeding on and you
will catch fish after fish. The sandbar just
off the Sanibel Lighthouse was on fire
last week with thousands of feeding birds
and fish breaking everywhere. On a half-
day trip there mid-week we had non-stop
action with fish constantly hooked up
A little further out off the beaches,
the fish got bigger. King mackerel and
big schools of bonita were out past the
20-foot mark. The kings could be caught-
trolling with spoons and diving plugs or
drift fishing. One of my favorite ways to
fish these kings is slow trolling with baits.
Shiners, threadfins, blue runners and pre-
rigged frozen ballyhoo with a skirt are all

catching kings.
When I target king mack-
erel on bait I like to use a
small piece of wire leader. Rig
bigger baits with a stinger rig.
My stinger rig consists of a
light wire live bait hook usually
about a 2/0 and a treble hook.
Run the J-hook through the
nose of the live bait and the
treble back between the dorsel
fin and tail. Kingfish are notori- -:
ous for cutting baits in two and r
missing the hook; this rig will
double your hook-up percent-
age. Kingfish stinger rigs can
be bought already made up or
make your own at home using
coffee colored hard wire lead-
er, the smaller the diameter of
the wire the better. Kings out
off the beaches have been run-
ning up to 40 inches.
While out trolling for kings A fly rod-
keep your eyes open for
bonita schools. They can be spotted from
a long way off as they crash and churn
up the bait schools. Look for large areas
of breaking water and gulls right down on
the surface to find these fish. Once locat-
ed, any small jig or spoon ripped through
the breaking bonita will get slammed.
These hard-fighting members of the tuna
family have no food value but are a blast
to catch. You can also work these bonita
schools by running and gunning as they
quickly pop up, feed and then vanish until
they locate another school of bait.
This is some of the most flyrod-
friendly fishing of the year. These eight- to
15-pound fish will quickly rip into the
backing of a 9 weight fly rod outfit mak-
ing 50-yard-plus runs.

Aa % e


friendly bonita

With so much action going on within
a few miles of the beach, even on windy
days you can comfortably fish gulfside out
of a small boat if you pay attention to the
wind direction before heading out.
Most of our beaches generally run
north and south and are calm close to
shore on any kind of east wind. Sanibel
Lighthouse to Knapps Point runs east
to west and is a comfortable alternative
when we have any kind of north winds.

in 1980 and has fished local waters for

'Secret" Garden Tours
For Celebrate Sanibel


ISLAND SUN - OCTOBER 29, 2010 23

Sanibel's secret garden

Did you know there is a secret garden on Sanibel? Chances are you've passed
it many times, but more than likely you have never visited it.
This special place is a native plant botanical garden containing 29 varieties
of native plants, trees, shrubs, and grasses. It is part of the restoration of vegetation
undertaken by Sanibel Beautification with the cooperation of the City of Sanibel,
the Sanibel-Captiva Chamber of Commerce, and the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation
Foundation following Hurricane Charley in 2004.
Plants in the garden are labeled and described, and the area is further enhanced by
picnic tables, benches, trash containers, a bike rack and three-tiered drinking fountain.
As part of the Celebrate Sanibel program, Sanibel Beautification has scheduled two
guided tours of this garden. On Tuesday, November 9 at 1 a.m., Susie Marks from the
Sanibel Vegetation Committee will give the tour, and on Wednesday, November 10 at
11 a.m., Jenny Evans from the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation will present the tour.
"Both are very knowledgeable and you will be fascinated as they will identify the
various plants and explain their contribution to the island ecology," said Ada Shissler,
president of Sanibel Beautification. The tours are timed to dovetail with Kristi Anders'
9:30 a.m. presentations at Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation on those days.
This charming garden is hidden away in plain sight at the intersection of Palm
Ridge Road and Periwinkle Way. Parking is available in the lot across from CVS and
the entrance to the garden is opposite The Book Nook. Free water will be provided.

Increasing The Odds For Butterflies
by Gerri Reaves
E ach day that
Joyce Sanders
goes to work -"
at the Butterfly
Estates, she's help-
ing to insure the
survival of native
Florida butterflies.
As manager of
the butterfly conser-
vatory, she teaches
people how to bring
butterflies into their
own yards.
That's an impor-
tant goal.
"All around the .
world, we're losing
butterflies.., because
of loss of habitat,"
Sanders says.
She took on the
mission years ago. Hands off... If you spot a caterpil- A welcome sight... This cat-
She's been involved lar that looks like bird droppings erpillar feeding on butterfly
with native plants on wild lime (Zanthoxylum fagara), milkweed (Asclepias curas-
and butterflies for rejoice. The unpalatable look is a savica) will transform into
18 years and is the natural defense for the caterpil- a Queen butterfly (Danaus
past president of lar that evolves into the lovely gilippus)
the Friends of Six Giant swallowtail butterfly (Papilio
Mile Cypress Slough cresphontes).
Lesson number one for butterfly gardeners: Butterflies like mostly wildflowers, she
says, and they need two kinds of plants, host plants and nectar plants.
She encourages people to include both kinds in their landscape to support the full
butterfly lifecycle. The conservatory staff provides information on how to group plants
attractively and effectively.

Joyce Sanders, conservatory manager at the Butterfly Estates, points out the various
host and nectar plants. This grouping includes scorpian's tail, pentas, wild lime, jatropha,
corkystem passionflower, and butterfly milkweed.
photos by Gerri Reaves

Wild lime, milkweed, pipevine, and passionvine are the most common host plants
in the conservatory.
If you're a novice butterfly gardener, corkystem passionflower (Passiflora suberosa)
is a great one to start with, for it's the host plant for the gulf fritillary, the Julia, and
Florida's state butterfly, the zebra longwing.
But there's more involved than just providing the necessary plants species.
If you visit the estates' conservatory, you'll witness the strategies that dramatically
increase the odds of a butterfly species surviving from egg to adult.
The staff will go so far as the collect the miniscule eggs to save them from maraud-
ing ants that pull them off the leaves.
Another strategy is sequestering the egg-laying caterpillars in safe environments so
they are not consumed by predators.
This improves a caterpillar's chance of survival by 80 percent compared to its
chances in the wild!
A gardener's restraint also plays a part in butterfly survival.
Avoid using pesticides, for they kill caterpillars. No caterpillars... no butterflies.
Also, position the butterfly area so it is not exposed to neighbors' pesticide use.
The conservatory staff relies on nontoxic pest control, washing aphids from leaves
with plain water and even introducing ladybugs into the conservatory to eat them.
Resident Chinese button quail, which are ground dwellers, also keep down the
insect population.
Saunders points out that there are a number of beneficial insects, ones that are not
pests and should not be destroyed. Be sure you know the difference.
A healthy butterfly garden will give you endless hours of pleasure. Not only will it
provide the color and motion of blooms and butterflies, but it will be a living laboratory
that teaches you about the cycles of nature.
Visit the Butterfly Estates at 1815 Fowler Street in the historic downtown Fort
Myers for more butterfly-gardening tips.
Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Call 690-2359 or go to thebutterflyestates.com
for information.

Conservation Biologist Honored
D onald Fox, a biological adminis- -
trator with the Florida Fish and '-
Wildlife Conservation Commission
and expert on Lake Okeechobee ecology,
was named 2010 Fisheries Biologist of
the Year by the Southeastern Association
of Fish and Wildlife Agencies. Fox, who
has been with the wildlife conserva-
tion commission for nearly 30 years,
received the honor last Tuesday at the -
association's annual conference in Biloxi,
"The [wildlife commission] has given me
the opportunity to pursue a career in natu-
ral resource management, a responsibility
that I approach with love and passion,"
said Fox. "Working in the Kissimmee
River, Lake Okeechobee, Everglades
system is challenging but also extremely
rewarding. I am deeply honored to be rec- Don Fox was named Fisheries Biologist of
ognized ... for I believe there is no greater the Year by the Southeastern Association
honor than to be recognized by one's of Fish and Wildlife Agencies
As a biological administrator for the
commission's Division of Habitat and Species Conservation, Fox manages the habitats
supported by Lake Okeechobee, the second-largest freshwater lake in the country. The
lake and its associated marsh and open-water habitats are home to rich and dynamic
fish and wildlife species, some of which are listed as threatened and endangered.
Additionally, the lake provides many recreational and commercial opportunities,
including fishing, boating, wildlife viewing and duck hunting. These activities generate
significant revenue to the state and local economy.
In recent years, Fox has led efforts to design and implement multi-million-dollar
habitat-enhancement projects benefiting Okeechobee's fish and wildlife.
Fox has worked closely with the commission s partners to make substantial scientific
contributions to the understanding of the lake's ecology and its conservation needs.
The lake, once a rapidly degrading aquatic ecosystem, is slowly recovering.
Tim Breault, director of the Florida Wildlife Commission's Division of Habitat and
Species Conservation, said, "We are extremely proud of Don and the fact that he has
been recognized by his fellow professionals in the southeast for his commitment and
contributions to Lake Okeechobee restoration. Our citizens and visitors are enjoying a
healthier, cleaner lake today, and this is largely due to Don's dedication and diligence
in managing the fragile Lake Okeechobee ecosystem."

Contest Winners
In third place was Kristi Price from Safety Harbor,
Florida, with her great egret photograph, which captured
the bird with a sea trout in its beak. Judge Paul Tritaik,
"Ding" Darling refuge manager, commented on the
expression" on the fish's face - wide-eyed and gasping
- as it met its fate.
"The judging was very difficult. The entries were very
creative," said judge Judie Zimomra, City of Sanibel
manager. "It's a great reflection on the asset 'Ding'
Darling is to the community."
The three winners received cash awards from DDWS
at Saturday's presentation. The winning photographs
and 11 honorable mention award entries will be on dis-
play in the Refuge Education Center through May.

My Stars ***
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Deciding to
work out that pesky problem (even though you
might have been bored, bored, bored with it)
should be paying off right about now Expect to
hear some very welcome news very soon.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20)
Unexpected news might cause you to rethink a
previous conclusion. Don't be bullheaded and
try to bluff it out. Make the needed change, and
then take a bow for your objectivity.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Money-
matters should be considered as you continue
to work out your holiday plans. This is a good
time to scout out discounts before demand for
them outstrips their availability.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A calm
period early in the week helps you complete
most, if not all, of your unfinished tasks. Anew
project appears by midweek, and this one could
carry some big career potential.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) Positive results
from recent ventures continue to pump up
those self-esteem levels, making you Fabulous
Felines feel you can tackle any challenge any-
one wants to throw at you.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22)
Family and friends might feel neglected because
of your almost total focus on a project. Try to
rework your schedule so you can have time for
both your loved ones and your work.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22)
Don't be surprised if you suddenly hear from
someone from your past who wants to contact
you about the possibility of renewing a long-
dormant (if not dead) relationship.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21)
This is a good time to check over what went
right and what went wrong with recent efforts.

This can provide valuable lessons for projects
that will be coming up soon.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to
December 21) Dealing with people who feel
they're always right about everything might
be a problem for some. But the savvy Archer
should be able to deflate their oversize egos.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January
19) This week favors a balance between the
demands of your work and your need for fun
timeouts. Taking breaks helps restore and keep
your energy levels high.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18)
There could be an occasional setback in what
you're working on. But look at them as lessons
on how to do better as you move along. More
supporters turn up to cheer you on.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20)
Although a more positive aspect influences this
week's course, you still need to be sure that
those who will work with you have no reason to
work against you. Good luck.
BORN THIS WEEK: You believe in
keeping your promises. It's not always easy to
do, but somehow you do it.

* On Nov. 1, 1512, the ceiling of
Rome's Sistine Chapel, one of Italian artist
Michelangelo's finest works, is exhibited to
the public for the first time. The most famous
panel is The Creation of Adam, a painting in
which the arms of God and Adam are stretching
toward each other.
* On Nov. 4, 1922, British archaeologist
Howard Carter and his workmen discover a
step leading to the tomb of King Tutankhamen
in the Valley of the Kings in Egypt. The most
splendid architectural find was a stone sar-
cophagus containing three nested coffins. Inside
the final, solid gold coffin was the mummy of

the boy-king Tutankhamen, preserved for more
than 3,000 years.
* On Nov. 5, 1930, Sinclair Lewis is
awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature for his
novels "Main Street" (1920), "Babbitt" (1922),
"Arrowsmith" (1925) and "Elmer Gantry"
(1927). In 1926, he had turned down the
Pulitzer Prize awarded him for "Arrowsmith."
* On Nov. 2, 1947, the Hughes Flying Boat
-- the largest aircraft ever built -- is piloted by
designer Howard Hughes on its first and only
flight. Built with laminated birch and spruce,
the massive wooden aircraft had a wingspan
longer than a football field and was designed to
carry more than 700 men into battle.
* On Nov. 7, 1957, The Gaither Report
called for by President Dwight D. Eisenhower
to review the nation's defense readiness and
urges a vigorous $30 billion campaign to build
fallout shelters to protect American citizens.
It suggested that American citizens were
completely unprotected from nuclear attack.*
On Nov. 3, 1964, residents of the District of
Columbia cast ballots in a presidential elec-
tion for the first time. The passage of the 23rd
Amendment in 1961 gave citizens of the
nation's capital the right to vote for a president
and vice president.
* On Nov. 6, 1982, Shirley Allen is arrested
in Missouri for poisoning her husband, Lloyd
Allen, with ethylene glycol, commonly known
as anti-freeze. Lloyd Allen was Shirley's sixth
husband and the second to die from mysterious

* It was French poet, journalist and novelist
Anatole France who made the following sage
observation: "The law, in its majestic equal-
ity, forbids the rich as well as the poor to sleep
under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal

* Those who study such things claim that
baby girls smile more than baby boys.
* While in space, astronauts can't use tradi-
tional salt and pepper. If they tried to sprinkle
the condiment on food, it would just float
away, possibly clogging air vents and otherwise
wreaking havoc. So some bright person came
up with liquid forms of the seasonings.
* The English word for the fruit "squash"
comes from the language of the Native
American Narragansett tribe. It means "some-
thing eaten green."
* If you ever decide to participate in a public
protest in Greece, remember not to wear sun-
glasses. Since shades can hide your face, wear-
ing them is illegal during demonstrations there.
* The Oldsmobile motor company also
made early gasoline-powered lawnmowers.
* Wilhelm Rontgen discovered X-rays in
1895, and his work earned him the first Nobel
Prize in Physics. His work also set off a fad
among many women, who refused to undress
even behind closed doors. They feared that
X-rays could be used to see through walls to
spy on intimate moments.
* The famed Pony Express didn't actually
use ponies -- just horses.
* After the vows have been said in a tra-
ditional Korean wedding, the groom formally
introduces his new wife to his parents. The
bride's father-in-law then pelts the bride with
red dates, which is supposed to ensure fertility.

"Man is the only animal that laughs and
weeps, for he is the only animal that is struck
with the difference between what things are and
what they ought to be." -- William Hazlitt

"We are proud to team up with Lee County
Homeless Coalition and work with Executive Director
Janet Bartos to eradicate chronic homelessness," stated
Jim Griffith, director of the Sidney & Berne Davis Art

how it will grow and develop into a dynamic collabora-
tion with over six other organizations being involved.
We truly are creating opportunities for everyone to par-
ticipate in this art show," said Kim Becker, curator for
The DOORS of Opportunity. "The mission is to utilize
the blank door as a catalyst for the artist in all of us to
emerge, to foster growth, hope and enjoyment, so we Kimberly Becker, curator
may discover something
new that lies within us,"
she added.
Artists were invited to submit their ideas based on
how they saw a door of opportunity or how a Doors
song inspired them to develop their concept.
Celebrity Artist Leoma Lovegrove will paint two
doors in splattered paint and colorful surprises during
Art Walk. These doors will be donated to the silent art
auction at the Davis Art Center Gala dinner the follow-
ing evening, November 6.

Musical Pirate Adventure
Opens Lunchbox Theatre Series

Rachel Swindler, Adam Jones, Megan Carr and Matthew Natale Rush in How I Became a
lorida Repertory Theatre announces the opening of its new and improved
Lunchbox Theatre Series with How I Became a Pirate, a new peg-tappin'
musical adventure.
The play will be shown Friday and Saturday, November 12 and 13 at 11 a.m. in
the Historic Arcade Theatre, and the $12 admission price includes the performance,
a lunch from The Morgan House and a special pirate workshop presented by The
Imaginarium. "The Lunchbox Theatre Series got a makeover this season," said Florida
Rep Education Director Rachael Endrizzi. "Not only are we performing on stage in the
Historic Arcade Theatre, but we have a new lunch partner, The Morgan House - and
we've added a whole new component with an interactive workshop that will really

enhance each child's theater experience. It is going to be an exciting year, and we're
thrilled to open with How I Became a Pirate."
Based on a popular children's book by Melinda Long with illustrations by David
Shannon, How I Became a Pirate is a delightfully funny and inventive new musical
filled with sea chanteys, plank-walkin', stormy seas and more pirate speak than anyone
could wish for. Kids of all ages will set sail for a hilarious and touching journey as one
young buccaneer learns that the most important things in life are worth more than
buried treasure.
Another new component to the Lunchbox Theatre series this season is a special
Friday morning performance designed for schools, day cares or other groups that
want to bring students to the theater. In addition to the November 13 performance,
How I Became a Pirate will also be presented on Friday, November 12. Both perfor-
mances include The Morgan House lunch, a discussion with the actors and the interac-
tive pirate presentation by The Imaginarium.
The production features Florida Rep's acting intern company, Megan Carr,
Matthew Natale Rush and Rachel Swindler as well as returning company member,
Adam Jones. These young theater professionals will spend the season working with
Florida Rep in many capacities, but chiefly with the Children's Theatre Series.
Florida Rep Associate Director Jason Parrish (The New Kid; Schoolhouse Rock
LIVE), directed the production, and was joined by an expert team of designers - all of
whom are residents at Florida Rep. Chris Simpson, the company's technical director,
served as the scenic designer, Roberta Malcolm, resident costumer, designed the cos-
tumes and Kate Smith designed the sound.
Tickets are $12 and available online at www.floridarep.org or through the box
office at 332-4488.
The show is sponsored by LCEC. Florida Rep's education programs are spon-
sored by Arthur Zupko, City of Fort Myers Public Art Committee, Florida Theatrical
Association and the Alliance for the Arts.
Florida Repertory Theatre performs in the Historic Arcade Theatre on Bay Street
between Jackson and Hendry with free parking in the Fort Myers River District.4

Local Travel
Writer Releases

Bahamas Guide

A (rco i' DtI -Iafiel

Sanibel Island writer Chelle Koster
Walton has had a busy year.
Along with updating her regional
Southwest Florida guidebook and
a book about the Florida Keys, she
researched, photographed, and penned
a completely new 263-page book about
The Bahamas.
Walton's experiential The Bahamas:
A Great Destination was released
by Countryman Press at the end of

September, and in its first week Tripatini.
corn selected it as Read of the Week.
The book "treads confidently where
other guides stop short, taking you past
the beaches and casinos to give you
access to ancestral lands, fishing settle-
ments, goat farms, conch shacks, and
theaters. These are the real islands with
all their culture and character," reads the
Walton has been writing about the
Bahamas for 15 years and has contrib-
uted to Fodor's Bahamas guide for 12
years. She also has written an iPhone
app called Nassau Selective & Seductive,
published by Sutro Media.
"For this particular book, I spent
more than a year traveling to the major
Bahama islands and getting to know the
people as well as the sights and wild-
life," said Walton. "I've always loved the
Bahamian people for their humor and
warmth. After this book, my admiration
has measurably grown for them and their
rich culture."
Features in each chapter -- such as
Island Character, which introduces read-
ers to a Bahamian islander; Bahama
Talk, which delights in local vernacu-
lar; and Sign Alert, which points out
posted messages like "Undertakers Love
Overtakers" - offer rare glimpses into
local life in the islands.
"Some of my most memorable
moments from my recent trips to the
Bahamas? Well, definitely snorkeling with
reef sharks in Nassau," said Walton. "But
also meeting Miss Elsie Knowles - the
queen of Long Island's straw-plaiting tra-
dition. "

Walton's two newly updated books,
The Sarasota, Sanibel Island & Naples
Book and Fodor's InFocus: Florida Keys
are due out in November. She has also
written the Sanibel & Captiva Islands
Essential Guide app and several books
about Florida and the Caribbean.
A resident of Sanibel Island for more
than 25 years, Walton is travel and cui-
sine editor for Times of the

Poetic Voices

With jack-lantern-heads
Lighted from within.
On this night
Graveyards are off limits.

Spiders leave their webs.
It's wise to be behind doors.

To hear those human words.

Ankle deep in soft surf
Cerulean - blue sky
Clouds, blue-ivory
Sunlight brilliant
On wave tops.
Lavender foam on sand.
Black tracery of palms distant,
Like a Japanese drawing.
Wind soothing with memories
On a Sanibel beach.

These poems are from Mahoney's

devoted to Sanibel Island. Mahoney
and his wife Rosemary visited here 15
times in as many years, the perfect

Book Review
Spies Of The
by Max
W while brows-
ing the
Snew books
- shelf of Sanibel's
- prize-winning pub-
. lic library, lovers of
good fiction should
be alert to works by
Alan Furst.
Widely recog-
nized as the master of the historical spy
novel, Furst's bestsellers have been trans-
lated into 17 languages.
Combining brilliant dialogue, care-
ful suspenseful plotting and entertaining
locales throughout World War II era
European capitals, Furst captures the
menace, excitement and live-for-the-
moment atmosphere of a continent at
The Los Angeles Times comments,
"Though set in a specific place and time,
Furst's books are like Chopin's nocturnes:
timeless, transcendent, universal. One
does not so much read them as fall under
their spell."
High praise also comes from the
Boston Sunday Globe: "No other espio-
nage writer touches Furst's stylish forays
into Budapest and Berlin, Moscow and
Paris. No other writer today captures so
well the terror and absurdity of the spy,
the shabby tension and ennui of emigre
communities at the time. His characters
are hopeless, lethal, charming. His voice
is, above all, knowing."
Furst's latest book is Spies Of The
Balkans, my personal favorite of the
three I have read. The scene is Greece in
1940 on the eve of the German invasion.
Not sunny vacation Greece, but northern,
Macedonian Greece, or Balkan Greece in
the city of Salonika.

At the center of the action is
Constantine (Costa) Zannis, a senior
police official who has become involved
in a German refugee escape route from
Berlin to Turkey through Yugoslavia,
Hungary, Bulgaria and Salonika.
Zannis is a handsome bachelor, of
course, who still goes home on Sundays
for dinner with his mother, but is involved
with a British expatriate who owns the
local ballet academy, a woman from the
dark side of Salonika society, and the wife
of a local shipping magnate.
Among Furst's other bestsellers are
The Polish Officer, Dark Voyage, The
Foreign Correspondent, The Spies Of
Warsaw and Spies Of The Balkans,
By Alan Furst. Random House, 2010,
hardback, 268 pages, $26. Available on
the new books shelf at the Sanibel Public
Library and Sanibel bookstores.4

Around The Islands With Anne
Jeweler Finds Silver Lining As Gold
Prices Soar; New Med Lab Opens
by Anne Mitchell
W ith the
of gold, many
people are turn-
ing to silver
when buying
jewelry for fun.
"Silver is the
new gold," says
Bobbi Veloce
at Friday's, .
The Sanibel "
Store in Jerry's ,
shopping cen-
Besides its
more casual Debbie Brooks bag with a Sanibel theme, from Friday's jewelers
appearance, sil-
ver looks great on everyone and is especially appropriate for a casual lifestyle like ours
on the islands.
The most popular items at the store are the things that can be switched around for
a different look. In this economy, perhaps people feel better about spending on jewelry
if it can do double duty and therefore offer more value for the money.

Gracie Noriega, lab technician at the recently opened Hayes Laboratory Services,
checks in client Glen Hendrix
LeStage convertible bracelets are doing phenomenally well, says Veloce. You pur-
chase one hook bracelet or pendant and you can clip on different clasps - anything
from flowers to seashells to special charms - to change the look. Charms start at
$59. Place an order now for the Christmas-theme clasps such as candy canes and
snow bears to guarantee delivery for the holidays. There is also a pink ribbon clasp for
October, Breast Cancer Month.
The Pandora charm collection is also going gangbusters. These bracelets and neck-
laces are link construction for a softer touch, but allow for the same versatility and per-
sonalization. There are now crystal birthstone charms. As Christmas approaches, both
the LeStage and Pandora collections are sure to be in great demand.

Part 1 of 3
G'day, mates
submitted by Patty Molnar
H ow ya going? This is Aussie for
"How are you doing?" Other bits
of lingo are "Bob's yer uncle" for
everything's ok" and "happy as Larry"
for "very content." "Tucker" is food," and
we resisted the impulse to go into a res-
taurant serving "Deutsche Tucker"!
Attila and I arrived two days after depar-
ture from the U.S. because of crossing the
International Dateline, after three flights
The 13-hour L.A.-Melbourne leg was
made longer by the strong headwinds we
encountered, causing an unscheduled stop
in Brisbane to refuel.
Melbourne is Australia's second larg-
est city, with a population of 3.6 mil-
lion. A surprise to me was how large the
populations of Melbourne and Sydney are.
Sydney has over 4 million. "Melbun," as
the Austrialians call it, is a sports-crazed
city with many beautiful parks, the most Koala bear
spectacular of which is the Royal Botanical
On one of our many walks through lovely residential areas and the city, we visited
St. Patrick's Cathedral (Anglican) where the priest lamented that too few Australians
go to church, that they only have about 100 persons in attendance on Sundays. This
he attributed to the country's history.
On Wednesday it was on to Alice Springs and Ulumru, the Aboriginal name for Ayers
Rock, in the Outback. In Alice Springs, we had a simple outdoor lunch and a talk
about the local Aboriginal people. The man who spoke,to us was the type of Aussie
character familiar to us through movies, etc. He had gained the trust of the local
Aboriginal people and served as a sort of unpaid "agent" to some of their artists.
After lunch he accompanied us to a nearby spot where several of them had their
artwork spread out on the ground for us to view and buy. Everything cost $50 or
$100, and we purchased one we liked, possibly the only Australian souvenir we will

Ayers Rock photos by Atilla Molnar
buy, as we don't have room in our luggage for a boomerang or a didgeridoo. Anyway,
it felt like an authentic experience.
After lunch we boarded a plane for Ayers Rock. Uluru has become a kind of tourist
cliche, but pictures do not do it justice. It and the nearby domes of Kata Tjuta (many
heads) are World Heritage-listed sites, both of which have been handed back to an
Aboriginal trust and then leased for 99 years to the government. Both Uluru and Kata
Tjuta have significant spiritual meaning for the country's native people. These huge
structures result from sediment laid down 500 to 600 million years ago and then tilted
almost vertically by the earth's movements.
We flew to the tropics and the city of Cairns (that's "Cans" to the locals). Cairns
is on northern Australia's east coast, and it is closer to Papua, New Guinea, than it is
to any major Australian city. We were staying in Port Douglas, the closest jumping-off
place to the Great Barrier Reef. We spent a day at this amazing and unique place in
the Coral Sea. I snorkeled, and Attila did something called an "underwater walk." I had
planned to do this too, but was put off by the fact that the participants had to wear
weight belts and a helmet weighing 65 pounds. Of course, the helmet became much
lighter once underwater, but I thought snorkeling was more my speed.

We also did a gondola ride above the nearby rainforest.
A few asides: Waltzing Matilda is neither the national song nor a song about a
romance. It is about a man with a "swag" (a bedroll or other belongings) who steals
a "jimbuck" (sheep), and, upon being found by the police, jumps into a "billabong"
(water hole) and drowns.
Another point worth mentioning is that this is an expensive country where $15 for
a martini and $5 for a cup of coffee are standard. I will say, though, that Australia has
a strong coffee culture and good, strong coffee is to be had on every corner.
The last point I will make before signing off for now is that the Aussies are every bit
as good-natured open and friendly as is their popular image.
Next, we're off for three days in Sydney.
Until next time,
Patty #



Olympic Kayaker
To Attend
the United States Olympic
Committee (USOC) has given
permission to display the USA
Olympic five-ring marks at the Art of
the Olympians Al Oerter Center for
Excellence in the historic River District
of Fort Myers.
On Friday, October 29, the center
will host an unveiling ceremony at the
Al Oerter Center presided by Norman
Bellingham, 1988 gold medalist in
canoe/kayak and COO of the USOC.
In recognition of Oerter's long-stand-
ing commitment to the ancient Olympic
ideals and his contribution to Olympic
sport, the USOC granted use of the word
"Olympian," which is protected by an
act of Congress. As an extension of that
license, AOTO is able to display the U.S.
Olympic Rings on and in the center.
The Olympic Rings are the most rec-
ognizable symbol in the world, and stand
for the pursuit excellence in mind, body,
and spirit.
In the ancient Olympic Games, an
athlete was not only expected to pos-
sess great agility and strength, but also to
understand and nurture the arts. By train-
ing the body in sport and the mind in art,
literature, poetry, and music, the ancient
Olympic Games were the inspiration that
produced more responsible and enriched


During the weekend-long celebra-
tion, the center will host several events
including the premiere of its self-titled
documentary on Friday, October 29. The
evening will be hosted by Peggy Fleming,
1968 Olympic Gold Medalist in Figure
Skating. Tickets are $20 for adults and
$10 for students with ID.
On Saturday, October 30, commu-
nity members will have an opportunity
to explore the Caloosahatchee River
on a kayak tour featuring co-guide and
Olympic kayaker Bellingham. Attendees
will learn about the Olympic Games and
Bellingham's experiences during a lunch
lecture following the kayak tour. Tickets
are $50 and reservations are required.
Gallery hours are Tuesday through
Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The
Gallery is closed on Sundays, Mondays
and holidays. For general museum infor-
mation, visit www.artoftheolympians.org.

Canterbury Students Bring
Home Trophies From Competition
anterbury students, after a total of 15 hours of debate at the Knight Model
United Nations (MUN) competition held at the University of Central Florida,
came away with five first place awards, as well as two seconds and a third place.
"Participation in MUN allows students to sharpen their public speaking skills,
enhance their critical thinking skills as they attempt to build consensus and problem
solve, and directly engage in scholarly research about topics that are the hot-button
issues of today," said Evan Crawford, MUN advisor. "Students at Canterbury are
exposed to an environment where high school-aged students are expected to maintain
decorum, adhere to parliamentary procedure and conduct themselves in a profes-
sional manner in front of peers as well as adults. This experience certainly gives these
students a leg up with respect to being prepared for not only college, but life after col-

The Islands

Pandora bracelets, necklaces and charms are still hugely popular. There's a big selection at
Friday's jewelers.

Another new collection at Friday's is the color-
ful Debbie Brooks line of bags and purses. Some
are of rigid construction trimmed with Swarovski
crystals, others tote-style with removable trims that -
can also be used on the matching belts. Cell phone -
wristlet cases are $98 and bags start at around
$300. There's a special Sanibel Island design avail-
able as well as frog-prince themes.
Coming soon to Friday's is a collection of Scott
Kay engagement and wedding band mountings
in 14 and 19 karat gold. The store will place one
of its beautiful Sanibel Diamonds in the setting.
Friday's, the Sanibel Diamond Store, is in Jerry's
Center on Periwinkle Way. .. ..
Hayes Laboratory Services has opened a
full service location on Sanibel at 1648 Periwinkle
Way, next to Jerry's shopping center.
The reception area looks nothing like the typical

Raise Money

For Seniors
L ast year, a group of local busi-
nesses formalized their decade-long
commitment to the seniors of Lee
County and formed CAMEO of Lee
County Inc. (Cooperative Associates
Marketing Elderly Options). During this
year, CAMEO has raised funds to help
where needed and has announced that
the year-to-date total is over $5,000.

On Wednesday, November 3,
CAMEO will hold its second annual
fundraiser called It's Five O'Clock
Somewhere, at Paseo in Fort Myers.
Like last year's fundraiser, this one will
have opportunities for all attendees to win
great prizes, including weekend vacations,
gift baskets and sporting event tickets.
The event will be hosted by DJ Dave

and will feature music, dancing, games of
skill and a silent auction.
"Last year, CAMEO worked hard to
raise money to help our local seniors,

PGA Tips
'Ready Golf"
Speeds Up Play
by Matt Oakley,
PGA Golf
Sl'he PGA has
, done studies
I and the #1
reason most people
leave the game of
golf is that it takes
too much time.
This is an issue to
me that we, as golf
professionals must
address. Not only is it my job to give the
people that play the game the best avail-
able experience, I am also responsible
for bringing new people into the game.
One of the best ways to have golf take
less time is to practice what we call Ready
Golf. Here are some examples and tips:

* Everyone should be ready to play
when it is their turn to hit.
Example: Working at the course ever
day I see two carts with four people in
them driving out to one golf ball. One
person gets out and that person hits their
shot. That person gets back into the
cart and the two carts drive to the next
ball five yards away and the process is
repeated with one person hitting a shot
at a time.
Ready Golf Solution: When your cart
partner drives to their ball, get up and
begin to figure out how far away from the
green your ball might be and begin decid-
ing what two or three clubs the yardage
may require and start walking towards
your ball with your clubs (be sure you do
not get in front of the person hitting).
That way when it is your turn you are
ready to hit. The more information you
can gather while other people are hitting
the better (wind, uphill/downhill, yardage,
*.Watch every shot hit carefully, not
only yours but everyone else's too.
This helps if someone in the group is

1. Who has won more Little League World Series -- U.S. teams or international
2. Who was the last hitter before Oakland's Jack Cust (2007-09) to lead the
American League in strikeouts three consecutive seasons?
3. Name the only place-kicker to win the NFL's regular-season MVP Award.
4. What was the first men's basketball team to play in the NCAA and NIT post-
season tournaments in the same season and win the NCAA crown?
5. When was the last time before 2010 that the Philadelphia Flyers reached the
Stanley Cup Finals?
6. Name the NASCAR Cup driver who won the Coca-Cola 600 three times dur-
ing the 1990s.
7. Who are the two tennis players who have won Wimbledon's men's singles
titles seven times each?

looking for a ball 50 yards from where
you know they hit it. You can then guide
them as to where to search. Or if it
obviously went 20 yards into the water
you can tell them they shouldn't bother
searching the bank for five minutes look-
ing for it.
* Unless you are playing in a tourna-
ment, hit when ready on the tee.
I know the rules of golf say that the
person with the lowest score on the last
hole hits first on the next tee, but com-
mon sense in non-tournament situations
tells me that if the guy with the lowest
score on the last hole is digging in his bag
and you are on the tee ready to go, hit
* Leave your cell phone in the club-
house or at home. If you must take it, put
it on vibrate.
Nothing worse than playing golf and
the guy you are playing with is trading
stocks on the 5th tee when it is his turn
to hit. Don't be that guy.
* That's not the first golf ball you have
ever lost and unfortunately won't be your
Take a second, look around, get over
it and drop one by the rules and move
on. I have seen the police search for
wanted criminals less than some people
will search for a golf ball they just found
on the last hole.
* Count your strokes as you go and
record them on the scorecard on the cart
ride to the next tee.
Don't you love waiting for the group
on the green to clear and when the flag
goes into the hole the one guy looks back
towards you and starts pointing to places
on the course: one, two, three, four, etc.
* Be a dictator.
"Bob, I think you are next to putt,
then Jim." I have seen congress come
to a decision quicker than some groups
deciding who is next to putt or hit, and
usually with less debate. Pick someone
and get on with it.
I hope these tips make your next
round of golf quicker.

Shore Fishing:
Don't Harm The Fish
by Capt. Matt Mitchell

ending a big fish from the
beach can be hard on the fish.
Dragging a fish up onto the
sand if you're going to release it is
not an option as it usually damages
or kills the fish.
* Hold the fish in the water while
you unhook it if you're going to
release it.
* The less you can touch a fish
before release the better for the fish.
* If you want a picture with the
fish, support it as you lift it out of the
water - and do it quickly.
* Before releasing, revive the fish
while holding it in the water; moving
it slowly back are forth so water goes
over its gills. The fish will let you
know when it's ready to swim off.
* Florida just recently changed
the regulations on fishing from shore.
Florida residents as well as out of
state visitors need a fishing license to
fish from shore.

Sanibel Storm Soccer
Clouds Gather
The Sanibel Storm soccer team
stands at 3 and 3 so far this sea-
son. Back to back defeats to teams
from San Carlos have curtailed their
great start to this year.
Amidst the two defeats, though, there
have been some excellent performances.
Thomas Coyne is proving to be an excel-
lent addition between the sticks and has
been well supported in defense by James
Dowling and David Wright. Eric Howells
and Oliver Goss are both proving to be
tenacious competitors in the midfield, and
with the energetic Stephen Rice up front
the team has performed with skill and
Coach Rob Price said, "In comparison
to other clubs in the area we have a very
small pool to choose from so the fact that
we have a team that is so competitive
says alot about the amount of hard work
the boys put into improving their skills
and strength. As an organization one of
the goals of Sanibel Youth Soccer is to


try and get our kids ready to play soocer
in high school and an increase in local
boys and girls doing so shows that we are
moving in the right direction."
The Storm's next game is at the
Sanibel ballfields this coming Saturday at
10 a.m. so come along and support your
local athletes. O

Grill, started
off the new
season right where they left off - by winning.
There was speculation among the others teams that the change in the Sanibel
Grill's management would leave some wrinkles that would need smoothing. But
Captain Dale Gurnsey silenced his doubters. His team left their opponent All Island
Glass in shatters last Wednesday in a decisive 20 to 4 victory.
"Gorgeous Gurnsey has a lot going on under those flowing locks of his," said team-
mate Mark Childers. "His game plan was most cerebral. It wouldn't be a surprised at
all if we go undefeated this year."
In the other games of the evening Williams and Williams sent shockwaves down the
spine of Sanctuary Island Electric in a 15 to 9 comeback win. Joe Ramsey, the fearless
and peerless captain of Williams and Williams said, "The game is sure to have impact
on the end-of-season standings."
And in the final game of the evening, Aztec Plumbing challenged the new team: the
Bay to Beach Bombers. The Aztec Warriors went on a rampaging warpath early in the
game taking a quick 11 to 3 lead after two innings. Just when it seemed the Bombers
were going to implode, they rallied behind the leadership of Captain Lee Cosentino to
put the plunger to Aztec Plumbing 22-14..0

South Africa Scores First Victory
With Upset Win Over France

Jake Gibson of Australia dribbles in the open field photo by Rob Pailes
The 1972 Miami Dolphins' perfect season is safe for another year as South
Africa defeated previously unbeaten France in U-10 Sanibel Soccer action last
Friday. Actually there has never been an undefeated season in Sanibel Youth
Soccer, but Csonka, Kiick and the boys seem to enjoy any reason to celebrate, so
we're sure they hoisted a few after mighty France went down.
From the opening kickoff it was clear that Coach Randy Wesley had Banyana
Banyana ready to play. South Africa jumped out to the early lead behind the offensive
team work of Knox Deal, Mya Wesley and Jason Perkins. France came right back as
Giovanni Sanchez fed a pinpoint pass to Alexander Goss who banged it home for the
equalizer. The two teams then traded opportunities with several near goals for each

Long Shots Rangers And
Giants Should Make For
Exciting World Series
I I by Ed Frank

If you had picked the San Francisco Giants and the Texas
Rangers to go to the 2010 World Series on opening day,
most baseball fans would have questioned your sanity.
In fact, the Las Vegas odds back then were 60-1 for the
Rangers and 50-1 for the Giants.
It shows that huge payrolls ($210 million for the New York
Yankees) and the advice of so-called baseball experts often are
meaningless and just plain wrong.
So here we have what should be an exciting series with the
Rangers a slight favorite. And despite who wins, history will be

The 2010 Class 4A state champs will hold one of their first practices of the
season at the Sanibel Recreation Center this Saturday, November 6 from
10 a.m. to noon.
The high school of choice for the majority of The Sanibel School graduates, Fort
Myers High School is ranked as the 71st best high school in America by Newsweek
magazine. It is also the home of the first Southwest Florida boys' high school basket-
ball champions in the tournament's 89 year history.
In his first three seasons with the Green Wave, coach Scott Guttery has led the
Wave to a 74-19 record, winning three district titles, two conference titles, a trip to the
sweet 16 in 2008, and a state championship in 2010. In 2009, Guttery received the
FACA district 5A coach of the year award and in 2010 he was named the Southwest
Florida Association of Basketball Coaches' coach of the year.
Coach Guttery will hold a special session with volunteer coaches prior to the prac-
tice to show them a few drills to use with their own players. Any volunteer coaches
who would like to attend the session, it will take place at 9:30 a.m. Call the Rec
Center at 472-0345 to register.
To help pay for practice uniforms and shoes for the team, the players will be selling
cards good for discounts at over 20 Fort Myers and Sanibel businesses. The cards are
$20 each and are good through October 2011. They can be purchased during the
practice or at Bank of the Islands while they last.
Sanibel graduate Rudy Zahorchak is now in his second season with the Green
Wave. After picking up two inches and 35 pounds since the beginning of last season,
the 6'10" sophomore is ready to get started.

It is the first trip to the World Series in Rangers franchise history having never
before even won a post-season series. For the Giants, you have to go all the way back
to 1954 when they were the New York Giants for their last world title.
The Giants did advance to the World Series in 2002, losing in seven games to the
Los Angeles Angels.
We believe it will be a great World Series because both teams have great pitching,
timely hitting and are playing solid baseball. And, although the Rangers were slight
favorites, let's not forget that the Giants will have home field advantage due to the
National League All-Star victory in July.
The following are brief overviews why each team could win baseball's biggest prize:
Two-time National League Cy Young Award Winner Tim Lincecum (the hurler
with the flowing hair) is a big plus for the Giants. Matt Cain, Jonathan Sanchez and
Madison Bumgarner represent a potent starting pitching corps behind Lincecum.
And the Giants bullpen anchored by black beard Brian Wilson is probably a notch
above the Rangers bullpen.
Finally, the Giants have received timely and potent hitting during the playoffs from
catcher Buster Posey and right fielder Cody Ross. However, it will take more than
Posey and Ross to defeat the Rangers.
Cliff Lee, who the Rangers picked up at mid-season, is probably the most dominant
pitcher in the game today. In the Rangers playoff wins over Tampa and the Yankees,
he pitched 24 innings, striking out 34 and walking just one batter. He gave up just 13
hits and two earned runs.
Lee started Game One Wednesday and will start Game Four and Game Seven, if
Closer Neftali Feliz is as tough as they come and center fielder Josh Hamilton, the
MVP in the Al Championship Series, blasted six home runs off Yankee pitching while
batting .350.
So who will win the World Series?
I'll take the Rangers in six games. But I wouldn't bet too much money on it.
Everblades Home for Three Games This Week
The Florida Everblades host the Kalamazoo Wings for three games this week in
Germain Arena after completing a 1-2 road trip last week.
The first game against the Wings was Wednesday night with Game Two tonight
(Friday) and the finale Saturday. Both have 7:30 p.m. starts.
The Everblades, 2-3-1 for the young season, split a pair of games with Greenville
and were defeated by Gwinnett last Saturday. The local team started the week in sec-
ond place in the ECHL South Division.

Will Power
Do The Rich Get Better Tax Breaks?
- by Craig R. Hersch, Florida Bar Board Certified
Wills, Trusts & Estates Attorney; CPA

F rom time to
.'' time I read
S'. . media reports
A that the "rich get
a disproportion-
ate benefit" from
this and that tax
law. Those reports
would normally
solicit a chuckle
from me if but for the fact that they
gain traction in the general public. So
in the interest of explaining basic eco-
nomics, I'm going to relay an analogy I
read from an economics professor who
equated 10 men having beers together
to our American system of taxes:
Suppose that those 10 men enjoy
some beers. At the end of the night the
bartender presents the tab for $100. If
these 10 men paid the bill in the same
proportion that the American public pays
their taxes, it might look something like
The poorest four men pay nothing.
The fifth would pay $1.
The sixth would pay $3.
The seventh would pay $7.
The eighth would pay $12.
The ninth would pay $18.
The 10th man (the richest) would pay
So, that's what they decided to do.
The 10 men drank in the bar every

day and seemed quite happy with the
arrangement, until one day the bartender
threw them a curve ball.
"Since you are all good customers," he
said, "I'm going to reduce the daily cost
of your beer by $20." The drinks for the
10 men would now cost $80.
The group still wanted to pay their bill
the way we pay our taxes. So the first
four men were unaffected. They still drink
for free. But what about the other six
men? The paying customers? How would
they divide the $20 windfall so that every-
one would get his fair share?
They realized that $20 divided by six
is $3.33. But if they subtracted that from
everybody's share, the fifth man and the
six man would each end up being paid to
drink his beer.
So the bartender suggested that it
would be fair to reduce each man's bill
by a higher percentage. They decided to
follow the principle of the tax system they
had been using. The bartender proceeded
to work out the amount each would pay:
The fifth man, like the first four, now
paid nothing (100 percent savings).
The sixth now paid $2 instead of $3
(33 percent savings).
The seventh now paid $5 instead of
$7 (28 percent savings).
The eighth now paid $9 instead of
$12 (25 percent savings).
The ninth now paid $14 instead of
$18 (22 percent savings).
The 10th now paid $49 instead of
$59 (16 percent savings).
Each of the six was better off than
before. The first four continued to drink
for free. But, once outside of the bar, the
men began to compare their savings:
"I only got a dollar out of the $20 sav-
ing," declared the sixth man. He pointed
to the 10th man, "but he got $10!"
"Yeah, that's right," exclaimed the fifth
man, "I only saved a dollar too. It's unfair
that he got 10 times more benefit than

gj "That's true!" shouted the seventh
man. "Why should he get $10 back,
when I only got $2! The wealthy get all
Ihe of the breaks!"
"Wait a minute," yelled the first four
men in unison, "we didn't get anything at
.n. all! This new system exploits the poor!"
The nine men surrounded the 10th
man and beat him up. The next night the
10th man didn't show up for the drinks,
so the nine sat down and enjoyed their
beers without him. But when it came
time to pay the bartender, they discov-
ered something important. They didn't
have enough money between all of them
to pay even half of the bill!
And that, ladies and gentlemen, jour-
nalists and government leaders, is how
our tax system works. The people who
' already pay the highest taxes will natu-
rally enjoy the most benefit from any tax
reduction. Tax them too much, attack
, them for being wealthy, and eventually
they won't be around anymore to pay the

Something to ponder when you read
how the wealthy enjoy the biggest tax
breaks when you watch candidates' com-
mercials leading up to the election.

Most Common


Mistakes To Avoid
by Marcia Feeney
P rior to begin-
.-ning any
S4- project, take time
to determine your
priorities, your tim-
ing, your budget
and your goals.
Don't forget func-
tion while creating
your 'look.' The
plan will serve to
keep you on track during the process.
Painting First - Painting is the first
thing you do after your plan is in place,
but paint color is the last thing you select.
Painted walls completed prior to selecting
the colors for your furnishings and floor-
ing severely limit your color selections
on everything else. For beautiful color
harmony, pull your wall and ceiling paint
colors from your fabric and flooring selec-
Incorrect Scale and Balance - One
of the most important design principles
is scale. Furniture that was appropriate
in another home with eight-foot ceilings
may look like toy furniture in your new
home with 14-foot ceilings. Each piece of
furniture should be in scale with the rest
of the pieces in the room, as well as its
overall size and proportion.
Out of Control Clutter - Whether it is
collections, family pictures, throw pillows
or faux greenery, too much of anything
is simply clutter. Select and display only a
few important things and store the rest.
Rotate items into your scheme later if you
wish. Less is definitely more.
Furniture Mistakes - Too large, too
small, too delicate, too chunky or just the
wrong look for the space. These mistakes
can be very expensive may and throw off
your plan.
Falling for Fads - Fads are fun and
fresh, but also fleeting. Satisfy your whim-
sy with small purchases such as a wildly
printed throw pillow or an eye-caching
piece of wall art that can be easily and
inexpensively replaced when you tire of
Settling for Safe - Safe usually results
in boring. An all-beige color scheme, the
six-piece matching suite of furniture, eight
identical dining chairs, or a house with
the same window treatments through-
out.... nothing really wrong about them,
just uninspired.
Keeping Things You Don't Like -
Don't feel obligated to hang onto furnish-
ings you have inherited or received as a
gift. If they don't fit your style or are just
plain unattractive, pass them along to
someone else. You aren't going to learn
to like them and they will undermine even
your best decorating efforts.
Palette - The gorgeous color matches
and mixes you've enjoyed for the last few
seasons are probably on their way out.
Don't make the mistake of choosing fab-
rics and paints that will begin to look old
before their time.
"Matchy, Matchy" - See "safe,"
above. Two matching end tables, with a
pair of lamps set off by two twin throw
pillows on a sofa that has a matching love
sea, chair or ottoman usually looks more

like a store display rather than a well-
designed room. Mix things up a bit for a
more interesting look that invites people
to linger and enjoy.
The Museum Look - Large walls
typically need larger pieces of art, but a
line up of framed pieces are best suited
for museums, where they are expected.
Bring in a variety of decorative pieces,
materials, and media to provide interest
on your walls. The art doesn't have to
match the sofa, but should not be so jar-
ring as to distract from the other furnish-
ings in the room unless you are a true
Focus of the Room - Every room
needs a subtle focus, and it probably
shouldn't be the cold fireplace here in
South Florida. But a room layout that
focuses attention to two or more ele-
ments can be disquieting (natural views
to the outside being the exception to this
Impulse Shopping - We've all done it,
given in to the impulse buy. That unusual
lamp, the adorable rug, the dramatic wall
hanging, all caught our eye in the store
but just didn't work when placed in the
home. Yet, oftentimes, we still attempt
to force them into our decor. If it doesn't
look great the day you bring it home, it
will never look any better.

United Way
2010 Campaign
More than 650 volunteers and
community leaders gathered at
the Harborside Event Center in
Fort Myers to celebrate the 2010-11
Campaign Kick-Off of the United Way
of Lee, Hendry and Glades.
Patricia O'Donnell, campaign chair
and owner of O'Donnell Landscapes,
encouraged everyone to "Live United"
and to give, advocate and volunteer.
"We breathed a sigh of relief last year
when our United Way met its campaign
goal. The challenge has begun again.
The 72 United Way partner agencies
are experiencing even bigger demands
for services that last year. It is extremely
important that we meet our goal again!
The goal for this year's campaign is

Patricia O'Donnell, United Way campaign
chair, speaking to a crowd of over 650
$8,024,330. We are going to reach our
goal because we must do it, and because
we live in a generous community," said
"Our United Way has met its fundrais-
ing goals year after year, even during
the difficult economic times of the past
two years. While there are some signs of
improvement in the economy, the needs
of our neighbors have not lessened; the
needs have actually increased.
Rob Wilson, United Way vice-chair,
and CEO of Enterprise Holdings,
announced that the Pacesetter
Companies - those who run their cam-
paigns early to demonstrate United Way

� I

Len Jennings, ABC-7 news anchor and
United Way Kick-Off emcee, was taped
to the wall at Harborside. Duct tape was
sold to members of the audience to raise
money for United Way
support and to encourage others - along
with early leadership gifts, have already
raised a total of $3,515,905.
"This really shows that our commu-
nity does 'live united' and believes in the
'Give. Advocate. Volunteer' theme of this
campaign," said Wilson. "Achieving 44
percent of the total goal at this point in

the campaign is extraordinary, especially
considering the economy. My company
supports the United Way, and this com-
munity supports the United Way because
of the enormous amount of good it and
its partner agencies do.
Publix again broke the $1 million
mark by raising the most of any of the
Pacesetter Companies.
The top Pacesetter Companies:
1. Publix Super Markets, $1,245,843
2. Chico's FAS, $300,000
3. Lee Memorial Health System,
4. LCEC, $115,000
5. FineMark National Bank and Trust,
6. Apollo Information Services,
7. Enterprise Holdings, $57,187
8. SunTrust Bank, $55,032
All money raised stays in the local
community to help support the local
human service network of partner agen-
cies including Harry Chapin Food Bank,
CCMI, Bonita Springs Assistance Office,
Alvin A. Dubin Alzheimer's Resource
Center, Children's Advocacy Center, Big
Brothers Big Sisters, and LARC.
In addition, United Way promotes
partnerships and collaborations among
agencies, helping them to work together
focusing on issues and solutions that con-
tinue to improve lives.
The United Way of Lee, Hendry and
Glades was established in 1957.

ISLAND SUN - OCTOBER 29, 2010 21 B
Free Autism
Screening For
Young Children
The Children's Hospital of
Southwest Florida, in partnership
with the Ronald McDonald House
Charities of Southwest Florida, offers a
free monthly autism spectrum disorder
screening for toddlers 18 months to
5 years of age.
The next screening will be held
October 29 from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
at the Lee Memorial Hospital's Child
Development Center at 2335 Clifford
Street, Fort Myers.
It is estimated that one in every 150
children is diagnosed with some form of
autism, making it more common than
childhood cancer, juvenile diabetes and
pediatric AIDS combined.
Medical consultants for the project
stress that an early diagnosis can make
a vast difference for toddlers and their
families. They say early intensive behav-
ioral intervention can make an immense
difference not just in the development of
the child, but in their families as well.
The autism screening is conducted
by the Neurosciences Center at The
Children's Hospital under the guidance
of pediatric neurologist Jose Colon, MD,
MPH, and pediatric psychiatrist Marianne
Krouk, DO. The screenings are admin-
istered by an advanced registered nurse
practitioner, who has extensive training
and experience in typical child develop-
ment and developmental disorders.
A physician referral is not required. To
schedule a screening, call 985-3608.4

Funds Raised For Kids With Cancer
L ee Memorial Health System has announced that more than $147,000
was raised at its 9 annual Raising Kids with Cancer Radiothon held Friday,
October 15.
All proceeds from the 12-hour Radiothon, which allowed patients and their families
to share their stories over the airwaves, will benefit the pediatric hematology/oncology
unit at The Children's Hospital of Southwest Florida.
Major sponsors included Cat Country 107.1, Mel's Diner and Miromar Outlets.
Hourly sponsors included Aubuchon Team of Companies, Old Corkscrew Golf Club,
Suncoast Schools Federal Credit Union, Police Association of Cape Coral, Copperleaf
Country Club, Rumrunners Restaurant and the Florida Gulf Coast Chapter of HFTP.
The event totals include proceeds from Rumrunners Celebrity Chef Night, held each
August as a kick-off to the Helping Kids with Cancer Radiothon.
For more information on how to support Lee Memorial Health System programs,
treatments and facilities, call the Lee Memorial Health System Foundation office at
985-3550 or visit www.LeeMemorial.org/Foundation.4

Got A Problem?
Dr. Connie Is In
by Constance
Sear Readers,
ra JI receive
Many ques-
tions about the use
of hypnosis in my
counseling prac-
tice. I would like to
address these ques-
Fru tions and provide
further information
relating to the ben-
efits of hypnotherapy.
1. What is the history of the medical
use of hypnosis?
Hypnosis goes back millennia and
Freud experimented with hypnosis at
the turn of the 20th century. Fifty years
later, Dr. Milton Erickson reported using
hypnosis in healing, galvanizing the psy-
chotherapeutic community, contributing
to the development of neuro-linguistic pro-
graming (NLP). Now, the Mayo Clinic,
the American Medical Association and the
American Dental Association all consider
hypnosis a valuable tool.
2. Has hypnosis even been used in
battlefield medicine?
In the 1800s, Dr. James Esdaile, an
English Army surgeon in India, anesthe-
tized wounded soldiers with hypnosis. He
amputated limbs, controlled bleeding, and
sutured wounds while patients were in
their natural altered state.
3. What about using hypnosis to make
patients do silly things?

That's stage hypnosis, merely for
entertainment purposes. These stage
hypnotists are highly trained and serious
about laughter. Audiences volunteer to go
onstage and have fun.
All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. One very
important thing to know is that we all are
in control of our own state of mind.
4. What issues lead clients to consult
you for treatment?
Working with the whole person, that
is, mind, body, spirit and emotions, clients
present with unwanted habits such as
addictions they want to break; pain man-
agement; loss; phobias; depression; natu-
ral childbirth; and confidence and success
programs. The most common themes
are weight loss and smoking cessation
whereby I use a three-session behavioral
5. What do you like best about practic-
ing hypnosis?
I love the fact that it is a natural pro-
cess and if the patient wants to make the
positive change they are seeking, they
can. The subconscious mind is so pow-
erful and we operate from our subcon-
science 95 percent of our time. So why
wouldn't it make sense to de-program
what was programed into us and re-pro-
gram our subconscious in the most helpful
way we can.
Please contact Dr. Connie for addition-
al information on the benefits of hypnosis.
Dr Clancy is a licensed mental
health therapist, certified hypno-
therapist, life coach, author and public
speaker You may email Dr Connie at
