They encourage every business owner to be thinking of a way to participate in a unique or fun way. A calendar of events will be prepared and promoted in local and national publications, so event plans must be formulated no later than August 1 for pre-publicity submission. Billy Kirkland offers some of his business celebration plans to give an idea of the possibilities: A raffle ticket for a signed Shellabration poster designed by artist Pam Brodersen will be offered to all Billys Bike and Rentals customers (online and on-island) with a drawing held each month December through March.

Sanibel-Captiva Art League Members Art ShowFor a cool respite during lovely sunny afternoons, everyone is invited to the Sanibel Public Library and BIG ARTS Phillips Gallery, both on Dunlop Road, to see the Sanibel-Captiva Art League annual members art show. There are over 100 original paintings by skilled artists in a variety of media with different subjects and creative compositions. Featured are local scenes painted during the weekly paint-outs. Many artists new to Florida soon learn they must modify their paint palette and change to Florida colors because the light and hue here often appear more vibrant than in northern states. In Phillips Gallery there is also an opportunity to see the traveling exhibit made by area students. Eleven Artreach banners from the Human Trafficking Awareness Partnership will be on display through August 31. Both the library and BIG ARTS welcome residents and visitors to check out their facilities and see what they offer. These locations, along with the original and restored buildings in The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village, also on Dunlop Road, are popular paint-out sites for the art league. Outdoor paint-outs are always a favorite among the participating artists, members and guests. Other meeting places include Bowmans Beach, Blind Pass, the Lighthouse and JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge. Tourists can observe the artists creating interpretations of local scenes.

3 ISLAND SUN JULY 15, 2011Snakes Are At Home At The Sanibel Historical Museum And Village Sanibel Island is home to a variety of snakes, many of which have been observed on the grounds of the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village. Yellow rat snakes and black racers predominate at the historical villages three-acre property, which is surrounded on three sides by city-owned wetlands. Fortunately, neither of these species is poisonous they actually perform a much needed function, helping to keep rodents and anoles in check. It is not unusual to find snake skins on the historical village grounds. Just this past week, a visitor found a beautiful specimen and presented it to the museum to become a temporary exhibit in the Rutland House science room. It is a four-foot yellow rat snake skin, intact in one piece, and offers young people an interesting lesson in herpetology. The snake, which lives in an undergrowth of heavy vegetation behind a replica outhouse, is developing a new skin to fit its growing body. While the main mission of the historical museum and village is to preserve and share Sanibel history, every once in a while, the museum is able to offer visitors something extra an up close environmental experience. There are nesting soft-shelled turtles, croaking tree frogs, lime green iguanas, black and white warblers shooting up and down live oak trees, pileated woodpeckers, gopher tortoises, armadillos, the ubiquitous raccoons and a variety of songbirds. Cardinals flocked to the Heritage Garden sunflower patch in June and picked the giant flowers clean of seeds. The village is also a habitat for native and specimen plants and trees, which are labeled and described on weatherproof signs. Admission to the historical village is $5 for adults 18 and older. Children and members are admitted free. The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village is located at 950 Dunlop Road (next to BIG ARTS) and will be open through August 6, Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The museum will then be closed until Wednesday, November 2. Seven historic buildings are centered around the Heritage Garden. Visitors learn about island history through exhibits and audio recordings which highlight pioneer families and agriculture, fishing and tourism. The Rutland House science room features artifacts from the earlier occupation of the Calusa and Spaniards. Take a step back in time for a lesson in island history, and as an added bonus, experience an interesting encounter with nature.

The much-quoted and highlyacclaimed plan has been the backbone of Sanibels planning process ever since. Hazel Schuller, who moved to Sanibel 40 years ago, is a consistent and vocal proponent of the plan, especially as it relates to human beach activities. She often speaks at Sanibel City Council meetings whenever she feels the beaches carrying capacity is being exceeded, or when chairs and other beach equipment are left on the sands all day, even when not in use. The thing that bothers me most right now is the daily positioning of resort beach chairs, the overuse of the island and the excessive human activity, she said. They conflict with the conservation values of the plan. Tuesday coincides with the next monthly meeting of the city council and Schuller plans to be there, although she hasnt decided whether to note the plans anniversary during public comment. In 2007, the American Planning Association (APA) gave Sanibel its National Planning Landmark Award for 2007. The award recognized Sanibels 1976 land-use plan that in the words of the APA has enabled the community to manage growth and development so as to not exceed the natural carrying capacity of Sanibel Island. The citation stated, Nine ecological zones on the island were identified and established to help planners designated appropriate land uses, intensity, and performance standards within each of the zones. The plan also led to one of Floridas pioneer growth management regulations, which allowed the city to control population growth so the islands infrastructure was not overburdened and residents could be safely evacuated for hurricanes using a two-lane causeway. The growth restriction kept new housing construction on Sanibel to 9,000 units instead of 30,000 units as proposed by Lee County. According to William Reilly in a 1976 introduction to The Sanibel Report, when he was president of the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation, The Sanibel Plan provides for long-term conservation of natural resouces as well as a reasonable amount of growth. The conservation foundation contributed to the planning process, which was prompted by unrestrained growth under Lee County goverment followed by the incorporation of the City of Sanibel in 1974. Improvements To The Village Can Move Aheadby Anne MitchellRoyal Shell Property Management and RLR Investments got the official go-ahead Tuesday to move forward with a plan to elevate two office buildings at The Village of Sanibel Shops to create 33 new parking spaces underneath. The planning commission unanimously approved variances allowing for the developed area to exceed 50 percent of the land area and coverage with impermeable surfaces to be more than 45 percent. Commissioner Chuck Ketteman was absent. The variance allows the company to exceed coverage by 1,614 square feet or about one percent above whats allowed. The application was debated two weeks earlier and all that remained was for the commissioners to approve the resolution. At the earlier hearing, Lisa Bramm, property manager, said the company hoped the extra parking would attract a take-out restaurant to the shopping and office center. She said she didnt have a specific restaurant in mind. At that time, Commissioner Ketteman said Bramm had indicated in the application that the center had never thrived and that a take-out restaurant would bring more traffic. According to Rick Kennedy, contractor for the project, the occupants will be able to remain while the work is done. Flint and Doyle Structural Movers will jack up the buildings. Two elevators, two sets of stairs and a wheelchair ramp will be added. The office buildings operate as commercial condominiums and they house, among others, a newspaper, PURRE (People United to Restore Rivers and Estuaries), an attorney, an advertising agency and Royal Shell/RLR Property Management. CHR Plumbing, Electrical Issues Aired At Meetingby Anne MitchellMike Valiquette, chairman of the Sanibel Planning Commission, voiced concerns at Tuesdays commission meeting about problems with electric and plumbing at Hazel Schuller


ISLAND SUN JULY 15, 20117 homes purchased through the islands Community Housing & Resources (CHR) program. It has come to my attention that a number of residents, particularly on Beach Road... are having electrical problems and plumbing problems and have gone to the board and are not getting any results, Valiquette said. I had to stop in on one a month or so back. A plumbing leak was causing damage. I had to seek out a plumber, said Valiquette, who owns a contracting business. In another case, a resident complained ed that using a toaster and a microwave oven popped the electric circuit, Valiquette said. This morning I got a phone call from a different owner over there, he added. Commissioner Phillip Marks said, Day to day operations are addressed by the Limited Equity Ownership Committee and CHR. If they are rental units its one thing, if they are owned it is another. He referred Valiquette to Nancy McHenry, the recently-appointed CHR executive director. Planning Director Jim Jordan noted that he would be meeting with McHenry in the coming week to discuss the annual report. He said he would raise the matter with her at that time I would rather handle it that way, said Valiquette, adding that he would forward details of the complaints to Jordan. Somebody needs to stop in and see what is going on, he said.

Its also the time when we invite other local service clubs, non-profits and organizations to visit with us and let us know what type of projects they are working on and give us an overview of how we might be able to help them. Just last week our board of directors had to make a decision on once again being a sponsor for the annual Ding Darling Days held in October. Of course, that was a no brainer. Last week Sanibel-Captiva Rotary invited Julie Workman, director of programs and community relations of The Heights Foundation to be our guest speaker. The Heights Foundations main goal right now is finding and providing funding to complete the construction of The Harlem Heights Cultural Arts and Community Center. This project has been a labor of love and perseverance for a group of extremely dedicated volunteers since 2005, led by Victor Mayerson former owner of The Mucky Duck on Captiva. Construction of the building was well underway, but in 2008 our national economy took a nose-dive and some substantial pledges had to be withdrawn. The building campaign stalled for a time but with resolve the foundation sought support from members of the extended community surrounding Harlem Heights and local and national businesses in the area. Funding got back on track with a lot of hard work and has now is over the $6 million mark. The capital campaign, with three months to go, is only $400,000 short of its financial goal to complete construction of the center. If you would like to help reach this goal, just give them a call at 482-7706. There are giving opportunities at all levels.Workman said the main goal of the center will be Breaking the Cycle of Poverty through Enrichment and Education. The center will be the hub for social and educational experiences in the Harlem Heights community. The foundation is already active in after school programs, outreach programs, play groups, summer camp and job training by partnering with other non-profits, service organization and businesses in the Fort Myers community. When the center is built, families in Harlem Heights will have access to the resources needed to help them meet their life goals. The center will house family development resources, economic self sufficiency programs, community connections and resources, wellness and health advocacy, cultural and expressive arts, computer learning lab, culinary arts training kitchen, and support lifelong learning opportunities. Harlem Heights residents, organizations and friends are focused on making the Harlem Heights community a viable, safe, and active community, one everyone can be proud of. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets at 7 a.m. every Friday at Beachveiw Steakhouse & Tavern, 1100 Par View Drive. For further information call 337-1099. New Science At Sea CruiseCaptiva Cruises new Science at Sea cruise is a hands-on adventure for children and adults.

ISLAND SUN JULY 15, 20119 Canvas Will Commemorate 9-11A large billboard-size canvas will travel all summer throughout southwest Florida in honor of the Remember 9-11 Tenth Year event. Artist Leoma Lovegrove has planned a community-wide art project to take place in the days leading up to September 11. She is escorting a canvas measuring 18 feet by 10 feet around the area on which members of the public will be invited to paint the names of those who perished in the terrorist attacks. At the Franklin Shops, names of those who lost their lives at the World Trade Center will be painted in red. At subsequent locations, different colors will be used for the names from the Pentagon and the four airplanes. In all, the more than 3,000 names will form the base of a painting of an American bald eagle. Lovegrove will be there to assist with the painting of the names. The canvas will be completed by Lovegrove during Remember 9-11 Tenth Year at the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre on September 11, beginning at 11:30 a.m. Many others have partnered with Lovegrove on this project to make sure that those who lost their lives are never forgotten and to honor those who conducted rescue efforts. Members of the New York Police Department 1013 Local will take part in the event as will members of American Airlines Suncoast KIWI9/11 Memorial. Leoma Lovegroves canvas will honor 9-11 victims Generous Homecoming For Wounded SoldierThe local community has reached out with generosity to Army PFC Corey Kent, a 22-year-old soldier from Cape Coral, who lost both legs and the fingers of his left hand when he stepped on a roadside bomb in Afghanistan. Kent had only been deployed three weeks when the accident happened on July 12, 2010. Last Saturday after months of treatment and recuperation, he came home to his family in Cape Coral and to a heros welcome. A motorcade escorted by Cape Coral police took Corey and his family from Southwest Florida International Airport to Harley Davidson for pictures and then across Veterans Parkway to Leapin Lizards Bar & Grill in Cape Coral for a homecoming party. There, well-wishers waved American flags to honor him. There were plenty of surprises, too, including gift certificates, money, a key to the city, and even a brand new car donated by the Sam Galloway Ford dealership. And on Tuesday the one year anniversary of his injury groundbreaking will begin on a new donated handicapped accessible addition to the Kent family home. Corey has given so much to this country and community. The very least we as a nation and a community can do is provide this young man some level of comfort and support for all that he has provided us, said Todd Gates of Gates Construction, who is working with the U.S. Forces Fund to coordinate the design and construction management. The non-profit U.S. Forces Fund, which is organizing the addition, is still seeking donations to complete the $75,000 project. Donations may be made in Corey Kents name at any Fifth Third Bank.

ISLAND SUN JULY 15, 201114 CROW Case Of The Week: Gopher Tortoiseby Emilie AlfinoMarti Repic was coming home from a brunch June 10 and was driving on Stringfellow Road, Pine Island, when she saw a gopher tortoise crossing the road. She was trying to cross to go over to a pond on the other side of the road because we hadnt had any rain, Repic said. By the time she saw the tortoise, it was too late to stop and there was a line of traffic behind her. When she looked back, she saw a vehicle swerve to hit the tortoise and feels sure it was intentional. I watched the gopher tortoise spin around like a top and I knew I had to go back and get her, Repic said. She found the animal bleeding with a piece of her carapace fractured and very loose. I got a box to put her in and called CROW, Repic said. I worked on Sanibel so I knew what to do. Repic was advised to take the tortoise to Chiquita Animal Hospital, one of CROWs dropoff points, and the tortoise arrived at CROW the next day. She actually was pretty lucky, Dr. Amber McNamara said of the tortoise, who had a fracture of the bridge that brings the upper and lower shell together, as well as a quarter-size piece of shell missing. With that type of injury, a big concern is whether the membrane called the coelom has been breached because it holds all of the organs inside. The coelom is very thick and looks almost like very tough cellophane, but a car can rupture it pretty easily and the lungs sit right beneath it. If that membranes been breached, you can make things worse by trying to make things better, Dr. Amber said. With her, although you could see the membrane, it was intact and that was certainly in her favor. The tortoise didnt want to use any of her legs when she arrived at CROW so it was hard for the staff to know whether she had any disabilities. Thats not unusual with these guys so we try to give them time to move when they feel like it, Dr. Amber explained. We started her on antibiotics right away. With gopher tortoises, a full course of antibiotics is 21 days; the drug we used was administered once every three days. So like everything with the gopher tortoise, it was slower. An advantage of this, though, is that the animal doesnt have to be handled as much. Pain medication was administered as well, which could be done orally, and a dressing was put on the fracture. We used a saline bandage to clean out any debris or blood clots that may have been in there and then basically let her rest for the night, Dr. Amber said. Gopher tortoise wounds are usually dressed with a saline bandage iniCROW treats between 60 and 70 gopher tortoises every year, most suffering injuries from car accidents The woman who rescued the tortoise in this story is sure the driver hit the animal intentionally. The gopher was lucky someone was there who knew to take her to CROW.

tially, then with silver sulfadiazene cream (SSD). The SSD step can last from days to months, depending on the wound; after that, the treatment is switched to golden yellow salve as the last step. The patient stayed quiet, sitting under a heat lamp all tucked in for about four days, not wanting to move or eat which is not too unusual, according to Dr. Amber. As the days passed with the tortoise in this dull state, everyone remained unsure about the function of her legs. On the fifth day, something happened the tortoise started moving and even got to go outside. She started to eat some grass, which was a good sign. She had very good use of all four of her legs, which was really nice because you never know about nerve damage, Dr. Amber said. Antibiotics were continued every three days, her bandage was changed every other day for three weeks, and her topical ointment was switched to gold-and-yellow salve that can be used without a bandage. The herbal salves consistency is like a thick paste. One advantage is that animals get sick of bandages, which makes it harder for them to stay calm. Eventually, the missing piece of the tortoises shell will fill in with something almost like scar tissue. Dr. Amber said, It isnt pretty, but its functional. I think she looks great. The wound will take a long time to finish healing but shes well on her way, Dr. Amber explained. I think shell continue to heal out in the wild as well as she could heal at CROW. On July 1, her rescuer Marti Repic was available to take the tortoise back to near where she was found in St. James City, her home territory. I was able to release her and stuck her back in the palmettos, Repic said. She put her far back from the road and near some water. Shes a lucky tortoise, Dr. Amber said. This is a pretty typical story for gophers, according to Dr. Amber. CROW treats between 60 and 70 gopher tortoises every year and the main reason is theyre hit by cars. The gophers dont just dart out in front of traffic, Dr. Amber added.

Sea Turtle StatsThe rare Kemps Ridley nest was dug last Thursday. Nests are dug 70 days after they are laid to get a count of the empty eggs and to rescue any hatchlings that didnt make it out of the nest. None of the eggs hatched or showed any signs of embryo development. After talking with the biologists at Florida Wildlife Commission it is likely that the eggs were never fertilized. Most of the adult male Kemps Ridleys would be off of the coasts of Texas and Mexico rather than off of the Florida coast, so they were unavailable for mating. As of July 8, 2011 Sanibel East: 30 nests, 59 false crawls (all loggerhead) Sanibel West: 194 nests, 287 false crawls, 10 hatches Captiva: 60 nests, 40 false crawls, 8 hatches If you have questions, or would like to know more about sea turtles on Sanibel, contact or call the Turtle Office at 472-2329 ext. 228. Summer InternsSummertime on Sanibel Island is typically considered off-season, but not for college student Arianne Lujan. A junior this fall at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Lujan is pursuing a degree in construction management and is spending the summer on Sanibel as one of many island interns. Dan Hahn Custom Builders of Sanibel has given the 20-year-old the opportunity to work as a member of its team. This is the first construction company Ive worked with and I am so grateful to have this opportunity, said Lujan. Its a great place to spend the summer and learn from those in the field. She will be assisting Hahn Vice President Kevin Vertesch with a broad range of work ranging from customer meetings, financial planning, marketing and public relations, social media and field experience. With an interest in construction management, we are trying to give Arianne a good sense of the different skills needed to run a construction business, said Vertesch. Lujan recently attended an island gathering of other summer interns who work with the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation, Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, The Sanibel Sea School, and the Ding Darling Wildlife Society, where her best friend, Lydia Templin, serves as an intern. As a member of her college swim team, Lujan has also been a regular visitor to the Sanibel Recreation Center and visits the beach every day. This is my first visit to Sanibel, and I have already come to love it, said Lujan. Living and working on an island is about as good as it gets!

Matt MitchellRains most of the week kept many people off the water. What seemed like a tropical depression sat on us bringing rain at just about any time for three of four days straight. When I did get out on the water, it was either on fire or tough with really no in-between. The best bite for me was still found in and around our local passes on the lower stages of the tide. As long as the water was moving, you could find something going on. When the passes turned off I switched it up and went out to catch sharks in the sound. While in Redfish Pass early one morning this week the bite was really going off for about a hour. Fishing with clients Sam Jolly and his son Hunter from Lake Placid, we had a 16-pound redfish, a seven-pound redfish and an 11-pound snook with with hits every drift. Hunter caught his biggest redfish ever, along with a 26 1/2-inch dinner size specimen. The morning outgoing tide seems to be the best bite but by 8:30 a.m. it was all over at Redfish Pass that morning. After we left the pass we managed a few more small snook and then by 11 a.m., as the tide slowed the bite, everywhere seemed to totally quit. I love to start a day off with such a hot bite but its always better as a guide to finish up a trip with plenty of action. Fishing is fishing, though, and I will gladly take the big fish whenever they come. I have been catching a few redfish around the mouth of the river on the morning higher tides we had later in the week. Though the action has not been that great, there are a few slot reds around close to home. With the dirty and hot water my bait of choice has been cut mullet chunks. I like to even chum the shoreline Im going to fish with some small mullet chunks as soon as I pull up. Once you get these fish feeding you can catch them on cut pinfish too, but we had only a a fish or two out of each hole before we had to move. Later, during the heat of the day, fishing for snook and redfish has been much tougher with the better action coming either trout fishing out on the open flats or mixing it up and catching sharks. Shark fishing during the incoming tide has been very consistent with areas from the outside of Wulfert Keys up to Rocky Channel being the hot spots for me last week. Soaking chunks of cut mullet on the bottom, we landed lemons, bulls and blacktips in the threeto seven-foot range. Shark fishing is my go-to during slow times of snook and redfishing all summer long. Most clients have never caught a fish of that size and when turned on to shark fishing really enjoy the big fish action. When I have kids on board I cannot think of any other species that excites them like sharks do. Sharks are a very under-rated gamefish and are often overlooked by most anglers. All the shark fishing I do anymore though is catch and release using circle hooks and spinning tackle. Sharks are generally slow growing and, being the top of the food chain, need to be respected.Capt. Matt Mitchell has been fishing local waters since he moved to Sanibel in 1980. He now lives in St. James City and works as a back country fishing guide.

There have been 15 nests so far. There are 11 fledglings from five nests; last year there were only seven fledglings for the whole season. One nest is incubating and one nest has two chicks. The two chicks survived the rough weather last week. Seven nests have been predated, including Nest 15; one had eggs that were not viable; one was washed out and then predated. This year, SCCF (Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation) is also monitoring Wilsons plover nests. There have been two nests: one has hatched, with three chicks, and a second nest has fledged three chicks. Nesting season will continue until midAugust and it is important that beachgoers help to protect these endangered shorebirds. Please keep a few things in mind as you enjoy the beach: Honor the leash law. An unleashed dog can kill an adult bird or chick or trample a nest. Respect marked nesting areas. Too much human disturbance can cause birds to abandon their nest. Always remain outside of the staked area. Avoid flying kites near nesting areas. Plovers view kites as predators. A kite flying overhead can cause a bird to abandon its nest. Never chase birds on the beach. Shorebirds use the beach to nest, rest, and feed. Forcing them to fly interferes with all of these activities. Fill in holes. Holes on the beach can trap chicks unable to fly. If trapped, chicks can die from predators or exposure. Learn more about these nesting shorebirds at SCCFs Snowy Plovers program, offered on June 23 at 10 a.m. Snowy plover mother and chickphoto courtesy of SCCF Addie Daniel (14) of Friendswood, Texas found a horse conch at west gulf beach #7 while staying at Lighthouse Point condo.

ISLAND SUN JULY 15, 201122 Plant SmartBeach Creeperby Gerri ReavesBeach creeper (Ernodea littoralis) is a native woody shrub that is perfect for dry, sandy, or rocky areas. Highly droughtheat-, and salt-tolerant, its a good choice for coastal landscapes especially. In fact, littoralis means of the seashore. Spreading, sprawling and vine-like, it helps to prevent soil and dune erosion to boot. Mature plants usually reach one to two feet tall. The stems are square and reddish at the nodes, and they can root where they arch and touch the soil. The succulent lancelike or oval leaves cluster at the end of stems. The leaves are dark glossy green, but often turn yellow due to stress or over-watering, suggesting another common name, golden creeper. The tubular flowers are quite small under an inch long but notable for their four under-curled pinkish lobes. They bloom sporadically throughout the year. The round golden fruit provides food for birds year-round. Each tiny berry contains one seed. Plant low-maintenance beach creeper in full sun. It will grow in nutrient-poor soil and does not require irrigation. Propagate it with seeds or tip cuttings. The medicinal tea made from the leafy shoots gives it yet another name, coughbush.

23 ISLAND SUN JULY 15, 2011Book ReviewBerlin 1961by Max FriedersdorfIn Vienna, Austria, during June of 1961, Soviet Leader Nikita Krushchev met face to face for the first time with the new American President John F. Kennedy. This man is very inexperienced, even immature, Krushchev told his interpreter Oleg Troyanovsky. Compared to him, Eisenhower is a man of intelligence and vision. The two most powerful men in the world had come together at the Vienna Summit over the powder-keg issue of Berlin where the Soviets and their East German puppet-leader Walter Ulbricht were threatening Allied access to the German capital. Kennedy, already reeling from the disaster in Cuba at the Bay of Pigs when Castro repelled a U.S. sponsored invasion, was viciously tongue-lashed by the bullying Krushchev. Kennedy emerged from their first conference in a daze, and asked the U.S. ambassador, Is it always like this? Newly opened archives reflect the provocative tone and threatening belligerence of the Soviet leader. I want peace,Krushchev said. But if you want war, that is your problem. It is not the USSR that threatens war, it is the U.S. In any event, said Krushchev, the USSR will have no choice but to accept the challenge. It must respond and it will respond. The calamities of war will be shared equally... it is up to the U.S. to decide whether there will be war or peace. President Kennedy later told Scotty Reston of The New York Times that, because of the Bay of Pigs, Krushchev thought that anyone who was so youngcontinued on page 33 1551 Periwinkle Way I 472-7242 Lunch 113 I Happy Hour 36 I Dinner 59:30Dinner reservations suggested DINING SHOPPING COCKTAILS AWARD-WINNING BISTRO CUISINE JEWELRY, CLOTHING, BOOKS & GIFTS FINE WINES, BEERS & HAPPY HOUR MENU Live!

EXPIRES 7/22/11 Everyones Favorite Orphan Is Backby Di SaggauI have seen the musical Annie numerous times and have never enjoyed it as much as I did at Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre. This is an amazing show with an energetic, talented cast that delights from start to finish. Set in 1930s New York during The Great Depression, this endearing rags to riches tale about a poverty-stricken, red-headed waif taken in by a billionaire is a pleaser for all ages. The show opens in the New York Municipal Orphanage, run by the infamous Miss Hannigan. Pauline Cobrda, plays the hard-hearted, conniving orphanage director. She possesses enormous comic talents including a delicious evil laugh. I was delighted every time she graced the stage. Joining her are brother Rooster, played by Jason Loete and his girl friend Lily St. Regis, played by the multi-talented Amy Marie McCleary, in the Easy Street number. You immediately want an encore performance. The role of the young leading lady Annie, is shared by Reese Balliet and Kristen E. Brock. The night I saw the show, 11-year-old Balliet played the role. She totally captivates the hearts of everyone with her Aw Geez, and her strong singing in numbers like Tomorrow and Maybe. Im sure the same can be said of young Brock. Its the Hard Knock Life sung by Annie and her adorable orphan pals is another winner. They sing their hearts out and dance up a storm. Speaking of dance, the shows choreography by Amy Marie McCleary, is as good as it gets. Jason Fleck plays Daddy Warbucks with an entirely convincing performance and his scenes with Annie are especially moving. I liked his NYC number with the Times Square backdrop. Lucy Horton is Grace Farrell, Warbucks secretary, a mother-figure, tall and slim, who moves with marvelous grace. James D. Heffernan Jr. as FDR also gives a notable performance. Of course youll enjoy the appearances of Annies dog Sandy, who steals the show a few times. Everything works in this production. The music is catchy, the story touches the heart, the sets are terrific and the entire cast delivers the goods. Paul Bernier can proudly add this show to his long list of directing credits. Annie plays through August 13 at Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre, 1380 Colonial Boulevard in Fort Myers. Performances are Wednesday through Sunday with selected matinees. Tickets can be reserved by phone at 278-4422, online at, or stop by the box office.

Be assured that youre being heard, and something positive will follow. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your sense of justice makes it difficult not to speak up about a recurring matter involving a co-worker. But, once again, you need facts to back you up before you can act. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Romance is still dominant, and if Cupid misfired before, dont worry. Hell take better aim at someone new this time around. Expect favorable news about a financial matter. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The zodiacs Moon Children can expect things to work out pretty much as planned. One negative note involves a minor relationship problem that suddenly turns serious. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Youre suddenly being asked to make choices between two practically equal offers. Which one to choose? Easy. The one most likely to gladden your Lions heart. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Once again, youre confronted by a workplace problem you thought youd already resolved. This time, you might need to go higher up to find a just resolution. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Good for you: Youre determined to stick with your goals and ignore those naysayers who might try to discourage you. Youre on the right track. The challenge now is to stay on it. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Youll soon get news that is supposed to help you with a troublesome situation. Use your sharp Scorpion instincts to determine if the information is reliable. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) If you learn someone has betrayed your trust, dont just accept it and walk away. You need to know why that person decided to do what he or she did. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A painful family relationship problem could finally begin to heal. Be prepared to show more flexibility than you might like. But it could be worth it. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Its a good idea to enhance your career skills so youll be prepared to accept a more responsible position when its offered. A friend returns a favor just when you need it. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Show that strong, steely backbone that you usually hide, and demand to be included in any family decision-making that could affect the wellbeing of a loved one. BORN THIS WEEK: You can be happy being alone at home. But you also love exploring the world outside and meeting new people and sharing new ideas. On July 18, AD 64, the great fire of Rome breaks out and destroys much of the city. Despite the well-known stories, there is no evidence that Roman emperor Nero either started the fire or played the fiddle while it burned. The fiddle did not even exist at the time. Nero was actually 35 miles away in Antium when the fire broke out. On July 21, AD 365, a powerful earthquake off the coast of Greece causes a tsunami that devastates the city of Alexandria, Egypt. It was not until 1995 that archaeologists discovered the ruins of the old city off the coast of present-day Alexandria. On July 19, 1879, Doc Holliday commits his first murder, killing a man for shooting up his New Mexico saloon. Despite his formidable reputation as a deadly gunslinger, Doc Holliday only engaged in eight shootouts during his life, and it has only been verified that he killed two men. On July 24, 1901, William Sydney Porter, otherwise known as O. Henry, is released from prison after serving three years in jail for embezzlement from a bank in Austin, Texas. He began writing stories to support his young daughter while he was in prison. On July 22, 1923, John Herbert Dillinger joins the Navy in order to avoid charges of auto theft in Indiana, marking the beginning of Americas most notorious criminals downfall. Years later, Dillingers reputation was forged in a single 12-month period, during which he robbed more banks than Jesse James did in 15 years. On July 20, 1972, a National Highway Traffic Administration study concludes that 1960-63 Chevrolet Corvair models are safe, contradicting charges made by consumer advocate Ralph Nader. In his 1965 book Unsafe at Any Speed, Nader had dedicated an entire chapter to the rear-engine car. On July 23, 1982, Vic Morrow and two child actors are killed in an accident involving a helicopter during filming on the California set of Twilight Zone: The Movie. Specialeffects explosions caused the pilot of the lowflying craft to lose control and crash into the three victims. It was American publisher and author William Feather who made the following sage observation: The petty economies of the rich are just as amazing as the silly extravagances of the poor. STRANGE BUT TRUE THIS WEEK IN HISTORY


33 ISLAND SUN JULY 15, 2011 The parents of one first-grade student at Hampton Day School in Bridgehampton, N.Y., once sued the school for not assigning homework to their 6-year-old son. In a victory for students everywhere, the parents lost. You probably know that the Chinese script is made up of ideograms: pictures that represent objects or ideas. Often, words are formed by pairing simple symbols to convey a more complex idea. For instance, the symbol for eye combined with the symbol for water creates the word teardrop. Pair mouth with bird and you get song. And, interestingly, pairing two women together makes the symbol for quarrel, and three means gossip. Census data show that women in the South tend to live longer than their counterparts in northern states. You may be surprised to learn that President Abraham Lincolns son, Robert Todd Lincoln, was on the scene of three presidential assassinations. The first time was in 1865, when he was with his father after he was shot at Fords Theatre. In 1881, Lincoln, who was then serving as Secretary of War, arrived at Union Station shortly after President James A. Garfield had been shot. Finally, in 1901, he was at the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, N.Y., when President William McKinley was assassinated.

And anyone who got into it and didnt see it through had no guts. So he just beat the hell out of me... Ive got a terrible problem. In his marvelous new book, Berlin 1961, Kennedy, Krushchev, and the Most Dangerous Place on Earth, author Frederick Kempe chronicles the unchallenged building of the Berlin Wall by the East Germans with the approval of their Soviet masters, and the tank-totank showdown at Checkpoint Charlie when the U.S. and the USSR were just one pull of the trigger from nuclear war. Based on a wealth of new documents and interviews, filled with fresh and startling insights, Berlin 1961 is an extraordinary look at key events of the 20th century, with powerful implications for the early 21st.

ISLAND SUN JULY 15, 201136 After 10 Years Behind The Plate, Joe Mauer Dazzles Baseball With His Athletic Skills At First Baseby Ed FrankWhen the Minnesota Twins selected Joe Mauer as baseballs No. 1 overall draft pick 10 years ago, it was a known fact that his athletic skills ranged far beyond just being a catcher. In fact, he was a high school all-state basketball and football player and had signed a letter of intend to play quarterback for Florida State. But never had his amazing prowess been more evident than last week when, after 10 years behind the plate, he was switched to first base in an effort to provide him a bit of physical relief from the grueling rigors of catching. Mauer was out of action two months this season with a leg weakness and had just returned from rehab when the switch was made to first base in the first game of a four-game series against the arch-rival Chicago White Sox a team the Twins have dominated over the years. In just his first Major League game at first base, it didnt take long for Mauer to showcase his skills. Four pitches into the game, he snagged a line drive off the bat of Omar Vizquel to double off Jaun Pierre who had singled for an unassisted double play. Then he fielded a grounder from Adam Dunn to record all three outs in the inning. But that was just the beginning. Using a glove borrowed from teammate Michael Cuddyer, he handled flawlessly hard-hit grounders and scooped infield throws out of the dirt. He also went three for five with two RBIs. Although he started taking ground balls at first base in batting practice about a week ago, he had not played that position since appearing in one game with the Fort Myers Miracle in 2003. Against the White Sox he was credited with 13 putouts and two assists. He even remained calm when Pierres grounder in the fifth inning bounced off his chest. He picked it up and tagged the speedy Pierre in time. White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said prior to the game that he knew someday Mauer would be shifted to first. I said two years ago, this kids going to be first baseman, the way he works nobody believed me when I said it. However, Mauer said that as much as he enjoyed the change not to lose sight of the fact that he is still a catcher. He proved that by returning to behind the plate in the next two games against the White Sox. But as he ages, and as his knees and legs suffer from the wear and tear of catching, you can bet that this gifted athlete will move to first base. He is too valuable to the Twins to keep his potent bat and defensive skills out of the lineup. And dont forget that Mauer is in just the first year of an eight-year $184 million contract. The Twins won three of four games in this series prior to the All-Star break to move just 6 games behind first-place Detroit in the American league Central Division. Minnesota has now captured 31 of the last 39 games against the White Sox. On June 1, the Twins were 20 games under .500 and 16 games out of first place. Their 24 wins since then are second best in the Major Leagues. They began the All-Star break at 41-48. Space Still Available for Miracle Advanced Baseball Camp Several spots are still available for the Fort Myers Miracle Advanced Baseball Camp starting August 26 for youngsters 13 to 16 years old. Campers will receive instruction from Miracle Manager Jake Mauer, his coaching staff and players in the fundamentals of baseball. The cost is $65 and is limited to only 30 children. Miracle Home Friday and Saturday against Daytona Cubs The Daytona Cubs, the first-half winner of the Florida State League North Division, provide the opposition for the Fort Myers Miracle today, Friday, and Saturday at Hammond Stadium. Tonights first pitch is at 7:05 p.m. with a 6:05 p.m. start Saturday. Daytona began this week with a 7-9 second-half record while the Miracle was 8-8, but just two games out of first in the FSL South. Joe Mauer swing batting Your Full-Service Electrical Contractor.

37 ISLAND SUN JULY 15, 2011PGA TipsGolf Car Safetyby Matt Oakley, PGA Golf ProfessionalWhen you play golf, most people dont think about the vehicle they are given to ride the course. These vehicles are not toys, they are basically a car! Every year there are many serious injuries and deaths from reckless drivers in golf cars. Just like on the road there are good drivers and bad drivers on the course. With just a little knowledge and safety, you can enjoy your day on the golf course: 1. Keep your hands and feet inside of the golf car at all times when moving. Most of the injuries are to players feet, ankles and knees from letting one leg hang out of the side of the car while driving. What happens is the driver hits a curb or comes close to a tree or sign post and his or her limbs are smashed against the obstacle and the side of the car, causing serious damage to the player and the car, which you will get to pay for in addition to the broken ankle you just received. 2. When on side hills the car tends to lean towards the bottom of the hill. If there are two players in the car the weight can cause the vehicle to roll over onto its side, throwing the players out of the car. In some instances the car will actually roll over completely. As you know, the roof of the golf car is not designed like a regular car. Many deaths occur this way. Drive parallel to hill as much as possible. 3. Do not drink alcohol and drive. This seems so simple, but for some reason we think we can drink and drive a golf car while impaired. Drinking alcohol slows reaction time, gives a false sense of invulnerability and is never good for driving or playing your best golf. 4. Obey signs on the course and the directions given to you before the round. Often the maintenance crew of the facility will rope off areas they are working on. When we disregard these signs and directions we may get into spots that are dangerous with staff working in holes in the ground you cant easily see or wet conditions that make the brakes not slow the car in time to avoid obstacles. 5. Never let anyone ride on the back of the car or have more than two people in the car at any one time. 6. Pay attention to where you are going while driving! While we are looking for our ball it is easy to lose sight of the dangers ahead like a lake, signs, posts, sprinkler boxes, hills, bunkers and many other things. 7. Control your speed. Going too fast in a vehicle is never a good idea; golf cars are difficult to stop quickly. Give yourself plenty of time to stop by slowing down. The next time you are playing golf observe these simple safety rules and you will have a great time playing the best game in the world! SPORTS QUIZ1. Since the last Triple Crown winner (1967), how many major-league baseball players have led a league in batting average and RBIs for a season? 2. How many seasons did Babe Ruth end up with more runs scored than games played (minimum of 140 games)? 3. How many college football teams was Paul Bear Bryant the head coach of in his career? 4. Who was the last repeat winner before Torontos Jose Calderon (2007-09) in assist/ turnover ratio for a season? 5. Name the NHL player who holds the record for best plus-minus mark for a season. 6. Who is both the youngest (16) and the oldest (38) woman to score a goal for USA Soccer? 7. When was the last time a horse in the No. 1 post position at the Kentucky Derby won the race?1.

Red/Pink There is a warming of the red family overall, influenced by the rise of coral in the palette, leading to livable reds that enliven spaces. Ethnic influences continue to penetrate reds. One version of a classic red, labeled Bam by the Color Marketing Group (CMG), supports reds reputation for being glamorous, sensual, passionate and powerful. Another hue straddles the red and brown families, producing a traditional oxblood red that finds wide use in flooring, cabinetry, carpeting, textiles and paint. Orange The orange story ranges from earthy to bright, grounded to optimistic. CMGs Adobada is a global spicy color that evokes terracotta, henna, leather, minerals, woods and other natural materials. Vibrant, juicy orange has positive energy as a mood-lifter and an accent color that works well with neutrals. Yellow Green moves into the yellow family for the first time, although yellows have been prevalent in green for years. Asian-influenced, Lemongrass (CMG) fuses tea culture with modern style. From a First Ladys inaugural outfit to dinnerware to textiles, this hue is calming and restorative. Hello Yellow (CMG), a vibrant daffodil color, perpetuates committed optimism and enlivens grays and taupes for home. A third CMG color in the yellow family that transitions between contemporary and traditional is Carmelite, a hybrid of brown, gold, red and yellow. The honeyed colors of nature and animal skin patterns that show influences of ethnic cultures from the Southwest to South Africa. Green Greens are yellowed, blued and grayed in CMGs latest consumer color palette, with a green to please every style preference. Among this group is a sophisticated creamy lime that is reminiscent of the first buds of spring. This yellow-based green is widely used with raspberry pinks, turquoise, navy blue plus neutral grays and browns. There is also a darker green that is not too cool, not too warm. Its an updated forest green with a touch of black. Blues Blue is ascending in many industries, often at the expense of green. The blues in this palette are very different from one another. CMGs Quebec Ice is a milky green-cast blue that is a calming, chameleon color that works well with red, brown and plum. Slightly grayed, Rainer Blue (CMG) is conservative but very pretty and works well with dark saturated colors. A red-base blue, Legacy (CMG), is just brighter than navy and becomes a classic when used with red or yellow, or more modern with a silvery gray or a shot of retro green. A clean spirited Bainbridge Blue (CMG) is vibrant and saturated, a far cry from the relaxed spa blues of years past. This blue is Latin inspired and would enliven color combinations using just about every color on the palette. Look to Kravets Barclay Butera line for fresh examples of traditional blue. Purple CMGs new colors veer away from lavender and lilac, but in these turbulent times there is something calming and soothing in the way they affect green and blue with warmth and youthful optimism. Beauty Berry (CMG) is a cheerful floral purple that brings energy and joy when used as an accent to other colors. Plums the Word (CMG) is an aubergine that can stand alone or support silver greens and grays. It is fashion forward but very livable. Beige/Brown Brown is represented by just one color on CMGs palette, a true chocolate that has red undertones. But, carried over because they have been so prevalent in the palette for the past three years is a hue that is a hybrid of brown and orange, and one that is a sophisticated earth-rooted brown with plum overtones that is used widely in wood grains, flooring and wall finishes. Neutral/Gray This is a very strong color family on the CMG palette. Grays are taking the spotlight this year because they are the perfect backdrop for the more vibrant hues on the palette, and grays seem newer than beige and brown. Portobello (CMG) is influenced by natural elements such as soapstone and metals. Versatile gray has wide support in wood finishes, paint, home textiles and carpeting.

School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, I want to get my kids who are in elementary school ready for the new school year that will be starting soon but I dont want them to lose out on their remaining days of summer fun. What can I do to make these last few weeks of summer enjoyable but also educational? Elise J., via email Elise, You are wise to start thinking about the new school year even though we are still enjoying our summer break. Research tells us that most students do lose some academic skills during the summertime but they generally can recoup them within 12 weeks of the new school year. In order to avoid this loss of skills, parents can provide their children with a variety of activities that will keep their skills current and without making the kids feel like they are back at school. One of the best resources for summer learning is the local library. We are very fortunate in SWFL to have such an excellent library system. Both the Lee County Library and the Sanibel Public Library have many summer activities and programs designed for children. They range from online puzzles to reading sessions with a trained reading therapy dog. Its easy to check out their programming online to see which of their classes will work into your schedule. Some of the best games to keep your childs skills current are simply the oldfashioned card and board games that many of us played as children. A single game of monopoly can last all summer Just keep the board out and play when you have 15-20 extra minutes. Let your child be the banker to keep up with math skills. Card games are a great way for kids to practice basic math skills. Crazy 8s, Old Maid, I Doubt It and many other games help with math, reading, memory, strategy building, patience, and good sportsmanship. Go to http://www. for a complete listing of card games for all ages with instructions on how to play. Vocabulary development and reading are skills that need to be maintained during the summer. Fortunately there are many ways to achieve this. Again games are an easy and effective way to help children with vocabulary and reading. Word games like Hangman, Scrabble and Boggle are great for word recognition, phonics, spelling and reading skills. My daughter and I always have an online game of Scrabble going. Of course reading to your children and having them read to you is a perfect way to keep and possibly improve reading skills. Plus it is such a comforting way for children to end a busy day and get ready for bedtime. A wonderful resource for interactive games, other ideas for reading and other academic areas is parents-and-kids. It also has many of their resources in Spanish as well. I hope that some of these suggestions will be helpful and that the rest of the summer is pleasant and educational for you and your children.

ISLAND SUN JULY 15, 201142 You might be surprised to learn that the moment you sign a durable power of attorney, your named agent has the immediate authority to sign checks, deeds and other legal documents as if they were you. In other words, you dont have to be incapacitated before the durable power of attorney is active. But I dont want them to be able to act for me unless I cant act for myself, Ive heard on more than one occasion. A power of attorney that isnt valid unless a precondition exists would be known as a springing power of attorney. In other words, it doesnt spring into action unless the precondition named in the document (such as the grantors incapacity) occurs. For many years Florida law did not authorize springing powers of attorney. Then, in 1996, the power of attorney statute was changed to authorize springing powers. Even though the law authorized them, springing powers of attorney werent practical and were very difficult to use. You may wonder why they arent practical. The reason is that banks and other financial institutions are rightly concerned about their liability when honoring a springing power of attorney. Allow me to explain by example. Suppose that David signed a springing durable power of attorney that authorized his son Mark to act as his agent if and only if David becomes incapacitated. David later suffers a stroke so Mark presents the power of attorney to Davids banking institution, expecting to be able to write checks on Davids accounts to help his father write checks and pay bills. Except that the bank wont accept the springing power of attorney. How do we know that David is really incapacitated? they ask Mark. The bank is rightfully concerned that if they allow Mark to write checks, and if David later alleges that he was never incapacitated and that Marks checks were therefore fraudulent, the bank would have a tough time defending their liability. At a minimum, the bank is going to want proof from a doctor that David is incapacitated, probably in the form of a signed and notarized affidavit from Davids physician. Mark then contacts his fathers physician to get such a statement. Here, we might expect the physician to be afraid to sign something like that for fear of his own liability. What if he signs such a statement and Mark writes checks on Davids account to pay for an expensive vacation for Mark and his family? Might David one day sue the physician? You can see where this is headed. Even though springing powers of attorney were legal, they werent practical. This is now a moot point anyway, since as of July 1 a new Florida law now forbids the use of springing powers of attorney. You might guess which groups lobbied to abolish them. Banks and brokerage houses led the charge to forever ban their use in Florida mostly for liability reasons as I explained above. Consequently, Florida law now provides that when one signs a power of attorney, it is immediately active, whether or not the grantor of the power is incapacitated. One therefore needs to be extremely careful when selecting a person to act as your power of attorney agent. If you are afraid, for any reason, that the person you named might one day abuse their authority, then you should not name them. It is always a good idea to discuss your expectations and wishes with whomever you plan to name in this important document, before you sign it. First of all, that person is going to have a lot of responsibility in the event of your incapacity. They may be responsible to write your checks, pay your bills, balance your accounts, manage your investments and file your tax returns among other things. Its not so much an honor to be named in a durable power of attorney document as it is an immense responsibility. Some decide to name two people. In this case, remember that each person will have an immediate right to act on your behalf. The danger in having two people is if they disagree on a course of action then you might have a stalemate, or worse, conflicting directions to your advisors. Its usually a good idea to select just one person to act for you at a time. You might also wonder what happens if someone abuses their authority under a durable power of attorney. While the agent must act in a fiduciary capacity the recourse would be to sue them for acting negligently. If they are judgment proof (usually because they have no assets to collect against if they were to lose such a lawsuit) then the filing of the lawsuit itself would likely result in throwing good money after bad. The bottom line be very selective when deciding who your durable power of attorney document names to act for you. And if you happen to have a document created under the old law, now is the time to meet with your attorney to update your documents. Craig R. Hersch.

43 ISLAND SUN JULY 15, 2011 Add-Ons For Air Conditioningby Bryan HayesThere are hundreds of after-market bells and whistles that can be added to your air conditioning system. They are added for a multitude of reasons including but not limited to: safety, convenience, efficiency or just to make the air conditioning contractor more money. Keep in mind that Im only expressing my opinion. We will start out with a few of them that I think are good or helpful and,as stated, these are the add-ons that should be part of an air conditioning system. A time delay. This is a device that prevents your outside system from starting up just after it shuts down. This is really bad for the compressor and really stresses it out. This is very useful when you have people who like to set the temperature at different settings. A float switch. This is a device that tells the system to stop running if there is water in places it shouldnt be. This helps prevent water damage due to A/C backups. Humidistat. This is a control that runs your A/C in your absence, and its used to control humidity. When we are not in our homes for extended periods of time, our biggest concern is to control humidity to prevent the growth of microorganisms. Now lets consider a few that I dont find all that helpful. These are add-ons that I feel are not needed on your air conditioning system, but we see them out there anyway. Programmable thermostats. I can already feel the sting of the angry responses on this one. Please let me explain. Programmable thermostats are a great device, but just not here. Most people utilize their homes on average four to six months per year here on Sanibel and Captiva islands. They kindly offer their homes to renters and guests. A programmable thermostat can be complicated to set and sometimes becomes more trouble than its worth. Everything that needs to be accomplished can be done with a non-programmable thermostat and a humidistat A hard start device. A hard start is like a battery it stores energy until its needed. These are useful devices when used properly. For the most part, they are used to help an older compressor that is worn to start on its own. We do, however, see these added to systems when they are not needed. This, unfortunately, is how some contractors will make additional money by selling things that are not needed. While its not a long list of products, it can certainly help you figure out what may or may not be useful in your case. If your A/C contractor is offering to sell you one of these, always try to ask some questions: What does it do? Why do I need it? How will it benefit me? The most important point is for you to feel comfortable with your service provider. Thanks for reading. Bryan Hayes is a Sanibel air conditioning contractor. He also owns, with his brother Todd, an electrical business on Sanibel. He can be reached at Is A Salt Pool The Thing For You?by David LiebetrauIve seen some salt pools on the island, but dont know much about them. What are the benefits of having a salt pool versus having a traditional chlorine pool? A : We have had several homeowners convert their pools to salt and have heard extremely positive feedback, but every homeowner has to decide if a salt pool is something that would benefit them personally. Most people do not switch to a salt system to save money. They switch because of convenience and swimmer comfort. Here we will explain how a salt system works, its benefits, and then the choice is up to you! First and most importantly, a salt system will not turn your pool into the Gulfcontinued on page 47 Duette ArchitellaHoneycomb Shades LuminettePrivacy Sheers Silhouette Window Shadings Buy more, save more, on select styles now through September 12th.

Dr. DaveFamily Caregiversby Dr. Dave HepburnThe day our pint-sized Granny came to live with us, us being my mother and her three teenage brats, was a sweet potato day. We kids loved our nonagenarian Granny given that we had a common enemy, namely Mom. But there was an adjustment or two that had to be made by all of us. We learned, by nauseating experience, never to tug at the Kleenex that was stuffed part way up Grannys sleeve. We got to know the sharp, medicinal smell of Noxzema, which mated with every air molecule in every corner of the house, being particularly pungent in the bathroom, bedroom and wet bar. Mom had to give me a stern warning that, given Grannys age, I was no longer to yank the dining room chair from under unsuspecting keesters that were about to alight upon it while I was helping to seat those at dinner. (I still remember Father Blair splayed across the carpet letting loose with some scriptural words that he never used in any sermon I recall. Granny laughed til her dentures flew out. I think Mom said grace that night.) I had to enter our only bathroom with my eyes wide shut, just in case. Even Ralph, our yellow lab, had to learn not to jump up on folks, given that he had knocked Granny down, petticoats over tea kettle, about 47 times in the first two days. This takedown was followed by a Benny Hill type chase through the house that involved Granny throwing bobby pins, wooden spoons and even the nauseating Kleenex we feared Mom would make us pick up before Ralph ate it. Nylons that my sisters wore on their legs were now ending up decorating Grannys head. Edgar Winters Free Ride was often accompanied by the blaring of a rogue hearing aid. Ralph eventually ate the hearing aid, which I think was fine with Granny who had no time for Edgar anyway. I always looked twice in a glass before drinking from it to see if there were any signs of Polident, Poligrip, Polyfilla or perhaps a loose molar. Grilled cheese sandwiches were made differently than when Mom made them as they now had a special white sauce in them along with a bread and butter pickle. The pickle was a nice addition but to this day Im not sure if the white sauce was Miracle Whip, Elmers Glue, Noxzema or all of the above. Though conversations took a little okay, a lot longer and we had to open doors a little more slowly and speak a little louder, I miss it. Miss her and miss the times that we were Grannys caregivers. Granny died at 96, but she died at our home, now her home, happy. Ralph laid at her door for a month. Remember the days when your mother changed your diapers, breast fed you, spoon fed you that Gerbers squash and prairie oyster slop. Well I do, and now, as my mother ages, it is my turn to do the same for her, though Im a little sketchy on the breast feeding thing. Remember when your dad beat you to the corner. When he provided for you financially. Well, now its your turn. We would love to remember our parents when they were in their prime but the time comes when we need to care for them while were in ours. The role of family caregiver is thrust upon you, sometimes voluntarily and other times because your brother apparently is on the Space Station conducting experiments with Poligrip or whatever, that will take 30 or more years or until probate court. These days 80 percent of the care at home is done by family caregivers, saving our health care system billions. There are over a million family caregivers in my province alone, with one in four people taking on that role in their lifetime. Over 70 percent are also trying to balance caregiving at home with their jobs, hardly an easy task. While it can be a rich experience, it can also be very taxing and create a real caregiver burden. Thankfully there is the Family Caregivers Network ( This amazing network has expertise in helping with the practical problems associated in caring at home for the elderly, the infirm or both. Experts at finding the specific answer to your unique situation, they are a remarkable resource that can offer respite, support, advice and Bingo on Tuesdays. Without explaining everything they do, I would simply suggest that if you are one of the million who are caring for a loved one or a husband at home and have not used this resource, Granny would slap you upside the head with her Kleenex.

My sisters little boy has autism, so Im naturally concerned for my prenatal care and pregnancy. Is there any way to reduce my risk of having a child with autism? CJ, Orlando, Florida There is so much controversy regarding vaccinations that Im not even going to entertain that here. Instead, Ill tell you about a less debatable finding based on a brand new study, conducted at Kaiser Permanentes Northern California Research Division in Oakland that found mothers of autistic children were twice as likely to have taken a an antidepressant in the year prior to their delivery. The risk appears even stronger if the antidepressant is taken during their first trimester. The study published in July 2011, in the Archives of General Psychiatry, analyzed prenatal data for women who took antidepressants in the class of selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors known more commonly as SSRIs. These are the most prescribed mood enhancers in the entire world known generically as paroxetine, sertraline, citalopram, escitalopram and fluoxetine. Researchers analyzed prenatal and maternal data from 1,805 children. Researchers stopped short of saying that antidepressants cause autism because that connection was not made. They simply reported that mothers of autistic children were more likely to have taken SSRI antidepressants, which begs the question: Should you wean off your antidepressants if you are planning to become pregnant? Its certainly worth a discussion with your doctor, outlining other treatment options for depression, both pharmaceutical and alternative. Knowing your options becomes incredibly important, especially since there is not a cure for autism so anything you can do to prevent it is helpful. SSRIs have uncomfortable side effects including brain fog, sexual dysfunction, insomnia, diarrhea, tremors, and suicidal thoughts in extreme cases. My concerns arent about the medication, its that some physicians prescribe these drugs at the drop of a hat to women who have underlying hormonal or micronutrient deficiencies. If youre planning to become pregnant, and you wish to discontinue your antidepressants talk to your doctor about how to wean off. Dont suddenly stop taking an SSRI on your own, do it with medical supervision and approval, and most of all, do it slowly! As often occurs with other journalists, the study is being reportedly inaccurately. They are saying that autism rates were increased in children whose mothers took SSRIs during the year before they got pregnant. The study suggests the problems were in women who took the medication in the year before delivery of their baby, that is, just before and during their pregnancy. Big difference. If you would like advice regarding natural alternatives, Ill post those on my facebook FAN page, the link to that is on my website homepage.

Antidepressant SSRI Use During Early Pregnancy Linked To Higher Risk Of Autism Mom And Me by Lizzie and PryceLizzie and Pryce answer your questions and give advice about aging concerns from a two-generational perspective. A mother and daughter team, Lizzie is a retired RN and health educator, and Pryce is a licensed psychotherapist in private practice who specializes in the care of elders and people with chronic illnesses. Dear Mom & Me, I have always tried to take care of my health. Years ago when I was told I should have a yearly physical, I did it. My husband and I retired and we moved to a new location and the new doctor said that he wanted to see us every six months, to catch any health problems early. That was fine with us. Recently we moved to another retirement area of the country and here it is completely different. I went to a new young doctor and it just turned out to be a discussion, no examination, just a general update and a conversation about a series of new tests. He ordered tests that he thinks are needed considering my age, gender, my family and my personal history. He asked if I had any complaints, and that was it. It all seems very strange to me. Do you know if this is the new approach to care for the healthy elderly? Tina Dear Tina, You are most fortunate that you enjoy good health and that you also have a physician who is practicing up-to-date medicine. According to Johns-Hopkins medical letter of May 2008, traditional examinations and tests rarely detected or prevented underlying diseases in healthy adults who were not experiencing symptoms. So instead of the traditional annual physical, many physicians are now concentrating on preventive services and ordering tests customized to the patients individual needs. Also this as needed approach means that the patient plays an important role in managing his or her own preventive care. This seems to be the new approach, but I am sure that many physicians and their patients would still prefer the more traditional physical examination. Lizzie Dear Tina, I have heard this from a number of individuals, thinking their physicians were not appropriately caring for them. I spoke with a few physicians in the area and they recounted the same information as found in the Johns-Hopkins letter. Icontinued on page 47


47 ISLAND SUN JULY 15, 2011 From page 46Mom And Meknow it is difficult when changes are not explained. However, it does seem from the literature that this change is a positive change and supported by research. It is important to have an open and honest relationship with your health care providers. If this change is of concern to you, discuss your concern with the physician. Pryce Lizzie and Pryces email address is Got A Problem? Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: My friend is worried about her 16-year-old son using substances. When does it become abuse?A: Many teens experiment with alcohol, tobacco or drugs. Some try a few times (which is not out of the ordinary) and stop. Others cannot control their urges and cross the line into substance abuse. Teens use alcohol more than any other substance. Marijuana is the illegal drug that teens use most often. They use alcohol and other drugs for many reasons. Mostly because they want to fit in with the crowd. They are in a developmental stage where they are learning their identity and are faced with role confusion. It may seem exciting at first and once they get that euphoric feeling, they may want to continue. Often teens use substances as a way of escaping the reality of challenges that they face. It is imperative that your friend talk with her son and confront her concerns in a firm but loving way. She needs to understand that teens do experiment but if it gets out of control this could lead to serious addiction and warrant treatment with an outpatient substance abuse counselor or an inpatient facility depending on the seriousness of the problem. If this is a serious problem, an intervention could prove effective. This is where concerned peers and family members talk with the teen and urge him to get help. Your support can be invaluable with your friend at this critical time. Dr. Clancy is a licensed mental health therapist, certified hypnotherapist, life coach, author and public speaker. You may email Dr. Connie at American Cancer Society Seeking SponsorsThe Lee County American Cancer Societys Making Strides Against Breast Cancer leadership committee is still seeking sponsors for the event that will take place at Tanger Outlets in Fort Myers on October 22.

From page 43A Salt Poolof Mexico. The standard salt concentration in a pool is about 3,000 parts per million (for reference, the Gulf has a salt concentration of about 35,000 parts per million). Second, your pool will still be sanitized by chlorine. As the salt passes through the systems cell, it is converted to hypochlorous acid (the active form in chlorine). Here is where the convenience factor comes in. Instead of having to buy, transport, and store liquid chlorine or tabs, you will now have your own miniature chlorine factory. As long as the system is on and water is flowing, you will have a set supply of sanitizer pumped into your pool. This programmed supply of chlorine will allow you to keep your sanitizer level slightly lower, which will help those with sensitive skin. It also helps to stop algae from forming. It is important to remember that you will still need to check and adjust the sanitizer production and other chemicals in your pool on a regular basis. Third, a majority of salt pool owners have said that swimmer comfort has increased since switching to a salt system. Think of it as the same principle as a water softener. The salt in your pool will soften the water helping to keep your skin from feeling dry and chalky, and also extends the life of your bathing suits! If a salt pool sounds like something you would be interested in, or if you have additional questions about it, we urge you to send us an email or stop in the store to ask questions and take a look at the different systems available.
