In April 2011, the WCIND board members unanimously approved $57,500 for the enhanced Marvelous Manatees Exhibit; the Lee County Board of Commissioners approved the grant at a recent meeting. The J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge acquired the manatee skeleton a couple of years ago. W ork will begin in October on the exhibit, which will include suspended models of a life-sized manatee and her calf, interpretive signage, and a number of hands-on activities including a CSI-type forensic area similar to what the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service uses. Charitable gifts to DDWS from the McCabe and Vanderbilt families made it possible to have the skeleton of a local manatee articulated and installed. The grant from the WCIND will significantly upgrade the exhibit, which will be accessible free of charge to Education Center visitors.continued on page 8 An artists rendering of the Marvelous Manatees Exhibit, which will open next spring in the refuges free Education Center. City BudgetPension Liability A Concernby Anne MitchellWith the unfunded liability of two city pension funds weighing on their minds, the five-member Sanibel City Council set a millage rate Tuesday but left until later in the budget process the question of further paying down the pension liability or the sewer debt or both. The draft budget totals $46.76 million, $2.7 million greater than the current budget due to the assumption that the city will pay down $2.6 million of the pension plans unfunded actuarial accrued liabilities. Council set the millage at 2.1561 the same as last year. It is .0032 percent less than the roll-back rate of 2.1630, a rate that generates the same amount of revenue as the current millage. Once approved, the rate can be reduced but not increased as council works its way through the budgets line items. The owner of a home valued at continued on page 6

5 ISLAND SUN JULY 22, 2011Only Two Weeks Left To Soak Up Island History At Historical VillageThe Sanibel Historical Museum and Village will finish up its 27th season on August 6 before closing for two months until November 2. Most of our docents have left the island by this time of year, said Carol Zell, museum manager. The city will be putting up hurricane shutters on all of our historic buildings and finishing up maintenance tasks before we reopen in the fall. Actually, summer is a nice time to visit. The Historical Museum is open in the mornings, Wednesday through Saturday, when it is cooler. The Rutland House is air-conditioned and most of the old buildings are constructed to provide air circulation with high, hip-roofed ceilings, oversized windows and raised foundations. These building techniques are still widely used on newer construction on Sanibel and Captiva. Visitors may tour seven historic structures that were part of Sanibel life from the 1880s through the 1970s. The 1913 Rutland House was the only museum building when it opened to the public in 1984. Burnap Cottage, Miss Charlottas Tea Room, the Post Office and the old Bailey Store followed in the early 1990s as the village began to take shape. Morning Glories, the 1922 Sears Roebuck kit home, was moved to the village from its perch on San Carlos Bay during the last decade, and the 1898 School House for White Children was the last historic structure moved to the village in 2004. It was restored to a 1920s one-room schoolhouse, after serving the community as a theater for several years. Island volunteers have been instrumental in restoring and preserving these buildings, which are so important to Sanibels past. Walking through the buildings, one gets a sense of the way life was back in the early pioneer days on Sanibel and Captiva. From the Calusa Native Americans and Spanish explorers to the farmers and fisherfolk all played an important role in the history and settlement of the islands. Along the way, there have been many interesting characters. As visitors to the museum discover, it takes fortitude and determination to continually battle heat, isolation, mosquitoes, and devastating hurricanes. And, maybe a little bit of craziness too! The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village, located at 950 Dunlop Road (next to BIG ARTS), is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The buildings and garden are handicap accessible. Admission is $5 for adults, 18 and older. Children and members are admitted free. For more information, visit www.sanibelmuseum.org or phone 472-4648 during business hours. The Burnap Cottage was built as a fishing retreat on Woodring Point just before the turn of the last century. It was owned by a succession of families, including the Brewsters. When Nellie Brewster died in Pennsylvania in 1946, it was reported that a light went on in her bedroom. Could this have been a friendly ghost?

Declining property values have reduced the citys tax revenues in recent years, but this year taxable values leveled off at about $4.2 billion a drop of less than one 1/10th of one percent from last year. That amount will generate $9.7 million, not including tax for the recreation center and other expenses approved by voters. However, the council did vote for the scheduled 3 percent hike in sewer fees, which works out to an extra $1.56 a month for homeowners. Council will decide later in the budget process what other measures to take with sewer expenditures and reserves. On the topic of whether to further pay down the unfunded liability of the general employees pension fund and the police pension fund, Mayor Kevin Ruane noted, It is by far the biggest liability we pay right now because it will compound next year. This is not great utilization of our capital. The funds are costing the city 7 percent and 8 percent respectively, so out of the $2 million the city paid in, only about $700,000 goes to the principle, Ruane said. Vice Mayor Mick Denham said, That is why I am questioning putting surplus (funds) into the sewer (debt). Ruane asked city staff to bring back further data. In her budget message, City Manager Judie Zimomra noted: City salaries remain flat for the fourth consecutive year; Full-time employees total 114, down from 142 in 2007; Health care costs for employees are contained at current levels; The proposed budget would pay down the pension plans unfunded liability by $2,552,016; With the exception of the sewer rates, all other city fees are held flat; $2.8 million is allocated toward general government capital improvements. This includes $1 million of capital projects rolled over from the prior years and $1.8 million for new projects. The next budget session is slated for Saturday, September 10 at 9 a.m. Fund Established To Dredge Canals Entranceby Anne MitchellThe Sanibel City Council on Tuesday established a special assessment district to fund future dredging of the entrance to Shell Harbor and Sanibel Estates canal systems. Dredging of the entrance, near Sanibel Marina, was done earlier this year. Since 1995, the entrance to the canals has been dredged seven times. The next project is scheduled for 2013 at an estimated cost of $33,000. Under the special assessment formula, the city pays one third, Sanibel Marina pays 40 percent and the homeowners pay the remainder. For each homeowner, that will amount to $20 a year, generating $11,600. The assessment will allow the city to control when the entrance dredging and internal canal soundings are performed, since the funding will be available through the citys budget process and collected assessments. A separate assessment would need to be established if the canal soundings find that the intemal canals require maintenance dredging. Hope For Residents On Dusty Street by Anne MitchellSome residents of Nerita Street, annoyed by dust and dirt from their unpaved road, asked the city council Tuesday to lower the percentage of property owners required to consent to paying for paving. They cited the citys decision to allow a 50 percent consent rate for residents in the Shell Harbor and Sanibel Isles canal area, who wanted to move ahead with dredging and couldnt get the 80 percent ratio needed. The consent is needed to set up an assessment district to apportion the costs. Typically, the city chips in on the paving cost. Councilman Doug Congress noted that an amendment to the U.S. Constitution can be passed with a 66 percent majority. Some residents said with some of the homes being rentals, its practically impossible to achieve the 80 percent consent rate. After some discussion and after hearing from residents for and against, the council seemed sympathetic to lowering the percentage, Mayor Kevin Ruane, who brought the issue before council, asked for more information. He asked staff to present potential costs for paving and maintenance and about the possibility of long-term health issues caused by the dust. He added, I would like to understand the legal process and the steps necessary to do this. The item will be on the September council agenda. Read Us Online At IslandSunNews.com
ISLAND SUN JULY 22, 20117 City Employees Pitch In For FISH Food DriveFISH (Friends In Service Here) of Sanibel has made an appeal to Sanibel and Captiva residents to help restock the FISH Food Pantry, which is running dangerously low. City of Sanibel employees responded and undertook to help by holding a very successful food drive this month. This is the third year in a row that they have done this. This year, assisted by Boy Scout Troop 18 of Gateway, the city collected over 800 pounds of non-perishable foods breaking last years records. Frances Slane and Charmaine Yeadon are the organizers of the annual drive. We want to thank the City of Sanibel employees for helping us out in our time of need again this year. As a result of their generosity, we are able to help more of our neighbors on Sanibel and Captiva at this lean time of the yea, said Bill Fellows, president of FISH. Their support for our FISH food pantry is really appreciated by the families who make use of the food pantry on a weekly basis he added. City Donates Bikes To Sanibel Bicycle ClubPursuant to Florida State Statutes, the City of Sanibel may offer surplus items to nonprofits. On Wednesday, July 13, the City of Sanibel donated surplus bicycles to the Sanibel Bicycle Club for use in their cooperative partnership with the Redlands Christian Migrants Association. In announcing this cooperative program, Sanibel City Manager Judie Zimomra said, This partnership is a classic example of how items can be reused and diverted from the waste stream. The City of Sanibel disposes of surplus items of value on the auction website GovDeals, at www.govdeals.com.

ISLAND SUN JULY 22, 20119 Free Family Beach Walks At AlgiersThe Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum, in collaboration with JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, is offering a free weekly program that is fun and fascinating for the whole family. Participants will meet at Gulfside City Park/Algiers Beach on Sanibel on Thursdays at 9 a.m. Refuge Ranger Becky Wolff will lead a short presentation about marine life on Sanibel, and shell museum volunteer Dotty DeVasure, a lifelong shell expert, will give tips on finding and identifying mollusks, as well as explain how they live, eat, reproduce and move. During the beach walk (which lasts about an hour), Wolff and DeVasure will be available to answer questions and help their guests identify shells and anything else spotted along the way. Because this is peak sea turtle nesting season, there is a good chance nests will be spotted during the walks! Our purpose is to show (visitors) the smaller items to see on the island, Wolff said. We want to show what makes Sanibel beaches the best in the United States, and thats the shells and the animals that create them. Julie Buehler of St. Louis brought her family along for a recent beach walk. Its just a fun thing to do to learn more about the island, she said. The sea turtle information was fabulous. Dotty gave us great information on shelling and different kinds of shells and the things we pick up every day that we take for granted. Theres nothing on Sanibel that we dont love in terms of the shells and the wildlife, so just to find out more about it is fascinating. Ten-year-old Brenna Cohen of Fayetteville, Georgia, and her mother, Claire, enjoyed the beach walk. It was really fun, Brenna said. I liked seeing the turtle nest and the shells are really pretty. I found a lot of coquinas. For shelling veteran DeVasure, beach walks never get old. It gets to be a part of you and you want to share it with everybody, she said. The nicest thing about it is that shells are all different -just like people. Call Diane Thomas at 395-2233 (at the shell museum) for additional information. Date: Weekly on Thursdays through August 11 (in collaboration with JN Ding Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge Where: Gulfside City Park/Algiers Beach Time: 9 a.m. Cost: Program is free (beach parking fees will apply) Refuge Ranger Becky Wolff explains how sea turtles build nests Dotty DeVasure, right, discusses shells during a Beach Walk
ISLAND SUN JULY 22, 201110 Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellKayanga, Karagwe, Kagera, Tanzania is quite a measurable distance from our little island of Sanibel. In fact it took Chet Sadler, Sanibel Captiva Rotarys international service representative, somewhere around 38 hours of travel time and four takeoff and landing experiences before arrival in the African country of Tanzania. It then took another six hours of road travel before Chet arrived at his destination of Karagwe, Tanzania. This trip was sponsored by KADERES and facilitated by Leonard Kachebonabo from Karagwe. KADERES is a Tanzanian NGO (non-governmental organization) that fights against poverty with focus on health, water, and local economic activities in a sustainable way. Sanibel-Captiva Rotary working with Global Partners for Development had funded the construction of two roof-rainharvest-tank systems and water treatment structures at schools in Karagwe tanks that would provide clean and safe water for the schools (clean water is valued so much, the water systems are guarded). Chet took the opportunity to visit these completed Rotary water projects and also to visit the site of a possible new location for a future water project. (In part the financing of these water systems are part of a new three-year pilot program for matching funds titled Rotarys Future Vision for Global Sustainable Projects) The water projects were not the only reason for this visit, Chet was there to explore the possibility of Rotary partnering with KADERES and the coffee farmers they represent on importing of Karagwe coffee to the states. Coffee is the main cash crop of the area, grown alongside small quantities of food crops including matoke (green bananas), cassava, beans, yams, maize and vegetables. Before visiting the coffee farmers, Chet had the extraordinary opportunity to take part in a Symposium for African Development in Karagwe. This important event brought together many developing small business organizations with a variety of speaker topics including the worldwide problem of food safety/handling, preparation, and storage; global warming; and micro-financing. Chet noted that half of the attendees were representatives of womens groups that receive micro-financing loans from KADERES and the remaining half or at least a high percentage of attendees were farmers. This three-day event ran from somewhere around 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Topics were serious and were explored thoroughly including break-out sessions and discussion periods. Now with a better understanding of trade and the marketplace for products and goods in Tanzania and the opportunities for developing business relationships Chet, his hosts and other business visitors took a six-hour journey to visit eight coffee farms under consideration as future coffee bean suppliers for Rotary and other importers. The coffee farms visited are located somewhere around 5,000 feet elevation with a growing climate much like ours. Chet said, There are two types of coffee beans grown on the farms he visited: robusta and arabica. Arabica are used in blends of roast and ground coffee. Presently farmers are picking the ripe cherries and laying them out on plastic sheeting on the ground for drying; shells are shaken off with rather simple machinery, and then coffee beans are screened before being ready for market. The quality of coffee bean crop is of primary concern and the longer the beans stay on the trees the better quality of product. Micro-loans from KADERES help the farmers ride out a longer growing period and improve the value of the coffee bean crop. These micro-loans are extremely important, as a longer growing period can sometimes cause a financial problem for farmers who need money to support their families throughout the year. Presently they sometimes sell their product at deflated prices to get them to market early. The relationship between KADERES and the farmers is vital. Chet enjoyed every moment of his visit to Tanzania and came home with a lot of information needed before Rotary could even start to go further into this project. Dont look for Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Coffee just yet; this project will take a little more time to explore. We will keep you posted. Upcoming speakers: July 22 is Andy Tetlow, museum curator for Koreshan, Estero Bay Park and Mound Key; July 29 is Shelly Radovan, deputy director, Education and Community Programs from the Lee County Mosquito Control District; and August 5 is Teresa Riska Hall, director, Volunteers Event & Community Relations, Ronald McDonald House.

ISLAND SUN JULY 22, 201111 Sanibel To Host Zonta Southeastern ConferenceThe Zonta Club of Sanibel Captiva, part of Zonta International District 11, which comprises southeastern states and territories from North Carolina to the Caribbean, has been chosen as the site for the districts annual conference. There are more than 40 Zonta clubs in District 11 and attendance at the annual conference is typically 150 to 200, and often includes one or more representatives of Zonta International. Recent locations include Hilton Head, South Carolina; Puerto Rico; Tampa; and Savannah, Georgia. This years conference will be held at the Sundial Beach and Golf Resort on Sanibel from Thursday, September 22 through Saturday, September 24. The local club, with other clubs in the region Sarasota, Punta Gorda/Port Charlotte, Fort Myers, Bonita Springs and Naples will serve as hosts. This is a great honor for our club and we look forward to showing District 11 Zontians our wonderful island, said event co-chair Carolyn Gray, a past president of the local club. For Zonta members, district conferences are a rich source of networking, sharing and celebrating successes all while meeting the Zonta International mission of improving the status of women. The theme for this years conference is Saving the World, One Woman at a Time, from the well-known inspiration of a child carefully saving starfish stranded on the beach. When challenged with the question of what difference the action made when there were so many, the child responded by picking up one more starfish and saying: Made a difference to that one. Guiding the planning process is District Governor Jane Adams of the Boca Raton club. Adams will remain in her position through May 31, when the Zonta fiscal year ends. During this conference, delegates will vote on the leadership for the fiscal year beginning June 1, 2012. Speakers lined up so far include Jose Leal of the Sanibel Shell Museum, who will give a talk on the science and aesthetics of shells, during Fridays lunch. Other speakers from the Southwest Florida area include Rosemary Boisvert, managing director for the Transitional Living Center at Southwest Florida Addiction Services, who will speak on grant writing, service and advocacy; and Nicole Waid, acting chief U.S. attorney, Middle District of Florida, on the work of the States Attorneys office and task force combating human trafficking. Sanibel City Manager Judie Zimomra will open the conference with a welcome address and the invocation will be given by Rev. Ellen Sloan of St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church on Sanibel. Saturdays keynote address will be given by Alice Bruner, executive director of the PACE Center for Girls, Lee County. The Zonta Club of Sanibel/Captiva is a service organization of professional women working together to provide hands-on assistance, advocacy and funds to strengthen womens lives on the islands, in Lee County and around the world through Zonta International.

ISLAND SUN JULY 22, 201114 Your Ad Can Help The Animals At CROWIn a recent interview, Dr. Paul Douglass, DVM, board member of the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, revealed that, Patients routinely leave our hospital without paying their bills. CROW cares for more than 4,000 injured, orphaned or sick wild animals annually. 85 percent come from offisland, and the patient load increases every year. Theyre wild animals, of course, so they dont have insurance, said Dr. Douglass. As a result, we struggle to cover expenses. We see about 200 different species a year, and each requires special food, habitat, medical treatment and handling. Its a real challenge to look after so many animals, he continued. And they cant pay for their care, so where is the money to come from? When asked what his biggest wish for the wildlife hospital would be, Dr. Douglass replied, If only every person who likes animals would chip in to buy insurance for the unfortunate creatures who come to CROW, we could continue to provide the care each and every one of them needs and deserves. Theres all this talk about universal health care, how everyone in the country deserves it. But what about the animals who come to CROW? Most of them wind up here as a result of interacting with humans. Our patients should have insurance, too. Dr. Douglass wish is about to come true. CROW is now seeking donors to pay for monthly insurance premiums that will cover the care and feeding of animals at the wildlife hospital.

ISLAND SUN JULY 22, 201116 Shell Museum Gives Parents A Break With Special Resort ProgramIn response to an identified need introduced by lodging partners throughout the county, The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum has developed a resort program called Children Play...Parents May? Family vacations are great, but did you ever find yourself dreaming of a few hours of adult play time? Maybe Mom and Dad have shopping in mind without the stress of assuring fragile gift shop objects will remain on the shelves. Perhaps your favorite book is calling, or you wish you could have a meal with just grown-up conversations. Do you ever have the vision of walking hand-in-hand down the beach but linking with only one set of hands? If so, this program is for you. Drop the children off and enjoy 2 hours of guiltfree adult time. Your children wont even know youre gone because they will be reading about mollusks and their friends, playing educational games, creating shell craft projects, making fact wheels or pop-up books, and doing creative writing. The program is appropriate for ages five through 12. The cost is $15 per child. Classes will be held at the Museum from 9 to 11:30 a.m. on the following Tuesdays and Thursdays in July, August and September: JULY Tuesday/Thursday 26, 28 AUGUST Tuesday/Thursday 9, 11, 16, 18, 23, 25, 30 SEPTEMBER Thursday, September 1 To register call Diane Thomas, the museums public programs specialist, at 3952233, or forward an email to email@example.com. Registration is required by 3 p.m. Monday for Tuesday sessions, and by 3 p.m. Wednesday for Thursday sessions. Shell Museum Group Visits Mote Marine LaboratoryThe Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum sponsored a field trip to the Mote Marine Laboratory and Museum in Sarasota on July 16. The 14 visitors marveled at the aquarium exhibits, working labs, shark tank and touch pools. They even took part in an interactive dolphin rescue. The Shell Museums public program specialist, Diane Thomas, enjoyed her first trip to Mote. I loved the turtles in the aquarium, I loved the manatees, she said. I really enjoyed seeing a live seahorse and the hammerhead sharks, the sea anemones and the clown fish. They had a lot of nice fish. The youngest member of the group, Daniel Young, 13, was making his third trip to the aquarium. I liked the shark tank, he noted. I hope to come back. The Shell Museum plans to take more trips to the Mote Marine Laboratory and other sea life destinations in the future.

Matt MitchellThe same old summertime story of fishing the passes for the best action continues this week as it will until at least September, if not later. Snook, redfish and trout could all be found at the one-stop shop, better known as your local pass. As long as there was good tide movement in the passes the bite was on. Good numbers of snook were caught on the lower stages of the tide using live pinfish along the bottom. There were also a few reds in the mix, but not close to the size of the big bull reds I have caught in the past few weeks. All the reds brought to my boat in the passes recently were in the slot, averaging 22 to 25 inches. Trout seemed to be more by-catch than anything else with two or three each trip while targeting the snook and reds. However, I did have a client get one nice 25-inch gator trout out of Blind Pass last week. It seems the annual mangrove snapper bite has just started to kick off in Captiva Pass. Although its hard to fish through all the short grouper to get a keeper snapper, the numbers are getting better and better. Small pinfish or whitebaits fished on light leader with the smallest weight possible to get the bait to the bottom is the key to getting the wary snapper to eat a bait. Watch your depth finder and fish the ledges and trenches. Once you catch one, mark it on the GPS and do it again. Captiva Pass also held good numbers of sharks in the three-foot range. which quickly ate a freelined bait or or a flatlined chunk of bait. With the passes this good, its hard to leave them and try something else. Sometimes you just need a change of pace. One morning last week I headed out solo to Matlacha Pass on the high incoming tide after hearing reports from a few friends about lots of redfish north of Matlacha to Burnt Store. I really enjoy fishing this area as it has very little boat traffic and angler pressure compared to the sound. The winding channel up to the pass from the south is all a 25 mph speed zone but its a nice calm ride and one of the few places in our area that is still has that wild, untouched feel to it. I fished both sides including the Two Pines side and the Smokehouse Bay side. Action on redfish was almost non-stop. Though most of the fish were on the small side, every shoreline or point that looked like it should hold a redfish did. As reported to me, all the reds would eat was shrimp. When they ate every shrimp I pitched under the trees, I would switch it out to a pinfish or whitebait hoping for a larger fish, and not even get a hit. Check it out and spend a few hours up there. Youre almost garanteed to have it all to yourself as I did mid-week. When Im fishing solo I enjoy checking out some new water. Although you might not catch the numbers of fish you could by going to the same old places, it makes a nice change to go somewhere new. Taking the tried and true techniques and trying them somewhere fresh is what makes us better anglers in the long run anyway.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 this year, with 11 fledglings from five nests; last year, there were only seven fledglings for the whole season. One nest has one chick (a second chick was lost, probably to predation). Seven nests have been predated, including Nest 15; one had eggs that were not viable; one was washed out and then predated. This year, the 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 mid-August and it is important that beachgoers help to protect these endangered shorebirds. Also, at last check on Tuesday, July 12, the least tern colony on Captiva had an estimated 21 nests and six chicks. 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 nests. 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 August 4 at 10 a.m. Snowy plover mother and chick photo by SCCF Our E-Mail address is pr ess@IslandSunNews.com
ISLAND SUN JULY 22, 201123 CROW Case Of The Week: Bald Eagleby Emilie AlfinoNot surprisingly, there was a lot of attention paid in March when a bald eagle came to CROW from Lehigh Acres with a shotgun wound. The eagles prognosis was questionable to put it mildly and although he had a remarkably successful course of treatment and a triumphant recovery, not much attention was paid when he was released back to his home in the wild on June 12. The adult bald eagle was found in Lehigh by Felicia Mercer, who had seen him on the ground in her neighborhood. The first time I saw him he was a couple of houses down from mine in the road, Mercer said. I was thinking, Is that really an eagle? I couldnt believe how big and how tall it was, and when the eagle spread its wings how far they went across. Over the next three days, the eagle made its way almost to Mercers front door near one of her vehicles, where he stayed for quite some time. Then the bird tried to walk off and thats when Mercer realized it was injured. He was headed for a wooded area and was struggling across the street. I couldnt see any injuries before that, Mercer said. The only time I did was when the bird was walking off and when he was trying to fly and couldnt. He just kept tipping forward. While Mercer was unfamiliar with CROW, she turned to the telephone book and looked under animal rescue and was referred to the Sanibel clinic. A volunteer came out and captured the eagle for transport to CROW. It was just calm, Mercer reported, sitting and looking around. He came to CROW on March 6 thin, dehydrated, with a lot of swelling around the left elbow, and both the radius and ulna in his left wing were fractured, according to Dr. Amber McNamara. We could feel those fractures. What we didnt know until we took a radiograph was how much buckshot there was everywhere throughout his whole body,she said. Who would shoot a bald eagle, not only a bird just recently removed from the endangered and threatened species list, but the symbol of our country? As far as I know, they never found out who did it, Dr. Amber said. Were required by law to report any intentional injury to any protected bird, not just those that are threatened or endangered. Most wild birds fall under this category. The investigation was handled by Fish & Wildlife from that point forward. The eagle was very dull and quiet and obviously didnt feel very well when he arrived at CROW. That first day we gave him some pain medication, cleaned up a couple of wounds near that fracture and bandaged those, and put the wing in a wrap to keep the fracture from getting any worse, Dr. Amber explained. We gave him some fluids because of his dehydration. The eagle didnt resist the ministrations. Most of the time with the raptors when you put a hood over their heads theyre more agreeable, and he was so dull which was not a good sign for him, she said. Because this eagle had so much swelling around the elbow, she elected to wait about three days to do surgery. When she finally did, he was put under anesthesia and Dr. Amber was able to put a pin inside the radius, drawing the ulna into better alignment. I was pleased with how that came together, she said. We put a wrap on after surgery to keep that wing immobilized. He came through the anesthesia beautifully by that afternoon and ate the next morning readily, and you cant ask for much more than that. The eagle was anesthetized again at the 48-hour mark to check the pin, andcontinued on page 24 Eagle waking up from surgery Original radiograph shows eagles injuries Post-surgery radiograph 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!

From page 23Bald Eagleeverything looked great. At that point we were able to put his pain medication in fish since eagles tend to eat them whole, and put him in our large doublewide cage where we were able to shift him from one side to the other to clean his cage without handling him much. Much of the buckshot was left in the bird. If we had gone searching for it, we really would have torn up the soft tissue, Dr. Amber explained. When I was doing surgery, if I had run into any I would have taken it out but I didnt go digging for it. The eagle was put under anesthesia one more time one week later to change the wrap and to start for the first time to do some stretching of the wing so the tendon didnt get too tight, and I was happy with the way it looked at that point, she said. The wrap was removed on the 23rd day, then staff did some stretching exercises and kept the bird inside another week and a half. So he was inside for about four weeks, which is a lot to ask of a large bird, but he was very cooperative, said Dr. Amber. Still, he was starting to let us know he was ready for more space. Dr. Amber removed the pin at the three-week mark with the eagle fully awake. He hardly reacted to it at all, she said. The eagle was moved to an enclosure that would allow him to stretch his wings yet not make him frantic to do more than he was ready to do. He stayed there for one and a half weeks before being moved to a small flight enclosure. He needed to spend another four weeks in that enclosure and he was starting to do some really nice flapping and short flights, she said. Once in a large flight enclosure, within two weeks he was flying the length of that cage, which is about 130 feet. With the eagle flying well, staff wanted to make sure their patient had the stamina to fly in the wild. He soon passed that test and on June 12 he got to back to his home in Lehigh. People questioned why he would be sent back to the place where he was shot, but Dr. Amber explained that eagles are territorial enough that he needed to go home. He may even have a mate there, she stressed. Everyone really did a wonderful job, she said. This eagle had so much trauma we werent sure at the beginning if this bird was even going to make it; it was wonderful to see him fly again. In his case, we knew the history of his injury he had been shot and was lying on the ground for three days. That was really helpful determining his treatment. Its very hard that we so rarely know what happened to the animals we see for treatment. Its rare that we have a complete history. That makes it a challenge for sure. One very happy person was Felicia Mercer, the eagles rescuer, who had no idea the bird had been shot and was very excited to learn that he was released and able to fly again. I cant believe it! she said.

Plant SmartFrangipaniby Gerri ReavesFrangipani the very word evokes the romance and beauty of the tropics. Most people know frangipani as the flower used to make leis, Hawaiian flower necklaces. Even gardeners committed to native plants only might find it difficult to shun or replace this native of tropical and subtropical America and the Caribbean. The tubular flowers emit what is arguably the most heavenly fragrance of South Floridas imported blooming trees. Many species of plumeria exist, and it has long been a popular landscape tree in the states subtropical clime. This broad-crowned tree usually grows to about 15 to 20 feet high and can be almost as wide as tall. The five-petaled flowers are tubular, funneled, and two to four inches across. Common species in this area are P. obtusa, which have white flowers with yellow centers, P. rubra, with pink or red, and P. alba, with white. The stocky branches are smooth, rounded, and silvery gray-green. Flowers appear in clusters on the branch tips. The coarse narrow leaves can be up to 20 inches long. They fall during winter, but frangipanis attractive bark and network of branches make this no mere barren tree to hide in the back corner. The twin seed pods are forked and up to a foot long. But if you want to propagate frangipani, cuttings are the way to go. Remove a lower branch, clean away leaves and flower stalks, and chop into footlong sections. Beware of the white sap, which can irritate the skin. Leave the cuttings in a shady spot for a few weeks to heal. Then use them to start new trees in potting soil. Plant a cutting in full to partial sun where it will have plenty of room to spread a canopy but is protected from cold northern wind. Frangipanis require regular fertilization, is susceptible to pests, and creates yard work with shedding leaves, so if maintenance is a primary concern, plant native flowering trees that tend to be noor low-maintenance. Because frangipani is so cold-sensitive, some people prefer to grow it in containers that can be brought inside a garage or lanai during cold snaps.

However, your partner might demand that you make promises for which youre not sure youre ready. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) As changes continue, expect things to get a little more hectic at your workplace. An unexpected travel opportunity could open new career prospects. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Confront the person who caused your hurt feelings and demand a full explanation for his or her actions. Youll not only recover your selfesteem, but youll also gain the respect of others. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) That personal problem in the workplace is compounded by someones biased interference. Stand your ground, and youll soon find allies gathering around you. LEO (July 23 to August 22) You dont accept disapproval easily. But instead of hiding out in your den to lick your wounded pride, turn the criticism into a valuable lesson for future use. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) That former friend you thought youd cut out of your life is still affecting other relationships. Counter his or her lies with the truth. Your friends are ready to listen. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) What appears to be an unfair situation might simply be the result of a misunderstanding. If you feel something is out of balance, by all means, correct it. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A stalled relationship wont budge until you make the first move. Your partner offers a surprising explanation about what got it mired down in the first place. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A co-worker shares some startling news, but before you can use it to your advantage, make sure its true. The weekend favors family matters. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Your usual conservative approach to family situations might not work at this time. Keep an open mind about developments, and you might be pleasantly surprised. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Plans might have to be put on hold because of a family members problems. Dont hesitate to get involved. Your help could make all the difference. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Relationships in the home and in the workplace need your careful attention during this period. Be careful not to allow misunderstandings to create problems. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a keen, insightful intellect and enjoy debating your views with others who disagree with you. You also love to solve puzzles -the harder, the better. On July 26, 1775, the U.S. postal system is established by the Second Continental Congress, with Benjamin Franklin as its first postmaster general. Until then there were no post offices in the colonies, so mail was typically left at inns and taverns. On July 25, 1832, the first recorded railroad accident in U.S. history occurs when four people are thrown off a vacant car near Quincy, Mass. A cable on a vacant car snapped them off the train and over a 34-foot cliff. On July 31, 1916, future racing legend Louise Smith, who will become the first woman inducted into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame, is born in Barnesville, Ga. In her first race, unaware that a checkered flag meant the finish line, Smith kept going when the race ended until someone threw out a red flag. On July 28, 1932, President Hoover orders the U.S. Army under Gen. Douglas MacArthur to evict Bonus Marchers -a group of World War I veterans seeking cash payments for their veterans bonus certificates -from Washington, D.C. MacArthurs men set their camps on fire, and the veterans were driven from the city. On July 29, 1958, the U.S. Congress passes legislation establishing the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, a civilian agency responsible for coordinating Americas activities in space. NASA was created in response to the Soviet Unions Oct. 4, 1957 launch of its first satellite, Sputnik I. On July 30, 1971, a mid-air collision between a Boeing 727 and a fighter jet in Japan kills 162 people. At 28,000 feet the Boeing suddenly encountered two military jets. One was flown by a student who had only a few hours of flying experience. Neither jet was equipped with radar. On July 27, 1993, Boston Celtics star Reggie Lewis collapses and dies after suffering cardiac arrest while shooting baskets at Brandeis University in Boston. After previous cardiac arrhythmias, doctors had incorrectly assured him that he could continue to play. It was Danish author, philosopher and theologian Soren Kierkegaard who made the following sage observation: People demand freedom of speech as a compensation for the freedom of thought which they seldom use.

ISLAND SUN JULY 22, 201133 iconic film The Birds, pet stores all over the country saw a sharp decline in the sales of pet birds. You might be surprised to learn that during the first airing of the original Star Trek series, no episode ranked higher than No. 52 in the ratings. According to the Guinness Book of Records, it was poor Donna Griffiths who suffered the longest sneezing fit ever recorded. On Jan. 13, 1981, the 12-year-old girl started sneezing, and she continued sneezing every day for more than two and a half years. If youre like the average American, you eat 20 quarts of ice cream every year. Im sure youve heard the term dimwit used as an insult, but, as it turns out, the word is more descriptive than derogatory. The human brain actually uses less power than a 100-watt light bulb. A man named Patrick Hooligan lived in London in the mid-1800s. He was such a notorious troublemaker that his name is still used today to refer to ruffians and hoodlums. In 1909, in England, one Lord Barbazon took a pig up for a ride in an airplane. Bovines seemingly got short shrift; the first cow didnt take to the air until 1930. It was in February of that year that a cow was loaded into an airplane in St. Louis. It was milked during the flight, and the milk was parachuted to earth. Hes turned his life around. He used to be depressed and miserable. Now hes miserable and depressed. -David Frost THOUGHT FOR THE DAY Book ReviewThe Fiery Trialby Max FriedersdorfThe Sanibel Public Library has assembled a dazzling display of contemporary Civil War history books in observance of the sesquicentennial anniversary of the conflict that erupted 150 years ago this summer over the issue of slavery. Highlighting the collection is master historian Eric Foners Pulitzer Prize winning The Fiery Trial: Abraham Lincoln And American Slavery. Fellow-citizens, we cannot escape history. We of this Congress and this administration, will be remembered in spite of ourselves... The fiery trial through which we pass, will light us down, in honor or dishonor, to the latest generation, Lincoln stated on December 1, 1862. If Lincoln achieved greatness, he grew into it. Not every individual possesses the capacity for growth; some, like Lincolns successor as president, Andrew Johnson, seem to shrink, not grow in the face of crisis, Foner, professor of history at Columbia University, observes. Heralded as the best work ever written on Lincoln and the pivotal issue of slavery, the book begins with Lincolns youth in Indiana and Illinois, follows the arc of his rise to the White House as secession fever grips the South and the country goes to war. During much of his early life, Lincolns origins of thoughts and feeling about slavery remain shrouded in mystery, but in April 1864, three years into the American Civil War, he wrote, I am naturally anti-slavery. If slavery is not wrong, nothing is wrong. I can not remember when I did not so think, and feel. Assembled on the new books shelf at the Sanibel Public Library, other aspects of the Civil War are covered in the many new volumes available. The new titles include: Border War, Fighting Over Slavery Before The Civil War; The Civil War, The First Year Told By Those Who Lived It; A World On Fire, Britains Crucial Role In The American Civil War; The Union War; Gettysburg As The Generals Remembered It, Postwar Perspectives Of Ten Commanders; America Aflame, How The Civil War Created A Nation, and Hearts Touched By Fire, The Best Of Battles And Leaders Of The Civil War. Other new Civil War books available at the library include: Gods Almost Chosen Peoples, A Religious History Of The American Civil War; Thunder On The River, The Civil War In Northeast Florida; My Thoughts Be Bloody, The Bitter Rivalry Between Edwin And John Wilkes Booth That Led To An American Tragedy; and Colonization After Emancipation, Lincoln And The Movement For Black Resettlement. The Fiery Trial, Abraham Lincoln And American Slavery, by Eric Foner. W.W. Norton & Co., 2010, hardback, 426 pages, 22 photos and illustrations, $29.95.

SimonWe came to call her the condo flower lady. They had given her a sad, tiny plot, so sandy the grainy weeds limped. Green-thumbed on all ten fingers of her liver-spotted hands, she lovingly turned that ground. From the fancy clubhouse gardens she stole brown soil, yogurt cup by cup, and fiercely grew riots of periwinkles. No one noticed the theft, but they did see the flowers, never thinking one of their own old ladies had done it. Stealthily, she began to advance, at night, a flowery, ghostly scout on full-moon patrol, to claim for all a second plot of sand. Then a third, where yellow daisies danced. A fourth she filled with purple petunias. The management grew wise to Saras gardens, so they gave her a bright red wheel barrel and a mountain of the richest potting soil. Thats when we named her, Flower Lady, We awarded her with a certificate framed in gold. Beneath that frames glass, Sara pressed flowers, these, of course, covered our committees noble words, but they did forever preserve the majesty of Saras art. Sidney B. Simon is professor emeritus, The University of Massachusetts. He is the author of a dozen books, mostly on values clarification and a happy member of Island Writers Group 4. His 13th book, Living And Loving In That Condo With A View Of The Gulf is poems about people growing old in a mythical condo on a mythical island. This poem is from his new book.

ISLAND SUN JULY 22, 201137 Womens World Cup Final Will Add To Growing Soccer Interest In The United States by Ed FrankAs millions watched Sundays gut-wrenching, dramatic Womens World Cup soccer finale between the United States and Japan, it became evident that soccer has captured the interest and fascination in the United States as it has in Europe and other countries for decades. Riding on the emotion of Japans recent catastrophic earthquake, the Japanese women defeated the United States 3-1 on penalty kicks after a 2-2 tie in overtime. And while the world pulled for the underdog Japan, our U.S. team is heroic in its own right despite the disappointing loss. Their march to the World Cup finals that included a heart-stopping penalty-kick victory over Brazil in the quarterfinals, cemented what soccer moms and others have known for years the beautiful game is riding a crest of popularity throughout the United States. ESPN reported that 13.5 million watched the World Cup Final, the highest television rating for any soccer game on the network. In nearly every community large and small you will find organized soccer programs starting with children as young as four and five years old. There are traveling teams, academy teams, school teams and independent league teams. Often the interest in soccer outpaces the interest in football, basketball and baseball among youngsters. You need only to drive to Sarasota every May to watch nearly 5,000 high school academy players compete in an annual tournament to comprehend the burgeoning growth of soccer. There are some old timers that will yawn when you mention the word soccer. If youre one of them, just ask some of your grandchildren about the game and you will find a far different response. I for one was slow to grasp the foothold that soccer has garnered in the United States. The fact is, however, it is a phenomenon that has been growing here for many years. And Sundays epic battle between the U.S. and Japan will further that growth. We had hoped that the United States women would have brought home the third World Cup Womens victory. They were taller, they were the favorites and they held a 22-0-3 advantage in previous games over Japan. Twice they held leads in the finale only to have Japan come back to tie the game. But after 90 minutes of regular time and 30 minutes of overtime, the smaller Japanese women prevailed in penalty kicks. Destiny was on the side of Japan after the devastating earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown struck the country. Their World Cup victory will provide a much-needed morale lift. And despite the loss, the United States soccer program will grow even stronger. Miracle Play .500 Ball in Second Half The Fort Myers Miracle continue to play .500 baseball in the seasons second half yet started the week just 2 games out of first place in the Florida State League South Division. The Miracle started an eight-game road trip Monday with four games at Dunedin and four at Clearwater before returning home to Hammond Stadium next Monday for eight games.

Joe Mazurkiewicz Dawn-Marie Driscoll Decorating Myths And Factsby Cindy MalszyckiMyth #1 Selecting a professional interior decorator would be too difficult and a decorating project would just overwhelm me. Fact The first step is done. Just by looking at our website you have reviewed the design capabilities of the Decorating Den Interiors professionals in South Florida and have seen the beautiful products we offer, backed by years of design experience. Since we handle everything about a decorating project, from design to installation, our clients find the process to be exciting and enjoyable. Myth #2 I dont even know what my tastes and favorite styles are and would be unable to give direction to a professional decorator. Fact Our highly experienced decorators will be able to help you see your home through new eyes. You will be shown color schemes, furniture styles, window treatments, fabrics, accessories, lighting and floor coverings that will best suite your tastes and lifestyle. Myth #3 Interior design is only for the rich and famous. Fact At Decorating Den Interiors we make quality, stylish interior designs affordable with our simple, straightforward pricing. Whether it is one room or your entire home, we work within your budget to achieve your dreams. And since we do not charge an hourly fee, there are no surprises at the end of your project just a beautiful room at the investment you agreed upon in advance. Myth #4 Decorating a home through a professional decorator is always more expensive. Fact Because of the size of our company, Decorating Den Interiors enjoys tremendous purchasing power within our industry. We have negotiated excellent direct pricing from the top name manufacturers in the home furnishing industry, allowing us to pass those savings through to our clients. Youll find our pricing to be very competitive, and our service, attention to detail, and follow-through to be exceptional. Perhaps the best aspect of value is our ability to help you avoid those costly decorating mistakes, or a room that appears to have been purchased for overnight delivery. Myth #5 Professional designers only use high-end, extreme styles. Fact During the very first consultation with your Decorating Den Interiors representative, a detailed discussion of your tastes, your priorities, your ideas, and your decorating budget will take place. Careful notes are taken and your decorator will refer to these notes while pulling together the design presentation for your home. Together, we will agree upon a design that is uniquely yours and that fits both your taste and your budget. Myth #6 My husband and I have opposite ideas regarding how we would like our home to look. A professional decorator wouldnt be able to please us both, so we are stuck where we are. Fact Everyone has their own taste, and its very normal for spouses to have different decorating goals. Like much of life, such situations are usually resolved with some compromise on both sides, usually guided by the decorators experience and some skillful negotiating to bring about a result that suits your individual needs within a dcor that is mutually appealing and functional. Dont be afraid to tell us exactly how you both feel about your current home and what you believe will satisfy you both for the long term. We do it every day. Myth #7 I have some furnishings that are very meaningful and special to me. A professional decorator will want me to get rid of everything that I love. Fact Were very accustomed to working with family heirlooms and personal affects that might not be cutting edge but that occupy a special place in your heart. Sometimes its simply a matter of putting those collectibles and mementos in the right location for your new dcor. Sometimes they can be complemented with new furnishings and incorporated in the new scheme. Dont be afraid to tell us exactly how you feel about those things you love and wish to keep in your daily life. Cindy Malszycki is an interior decorator on Sanibel.

ISLAND SUN JULY 22, 201141 The last installment of the Harry Potter films is now released, which raised an interesting dinner conversation not too long ago among me, my wife and our three daughters. What do you think, I began, about the fact that an immense amount of value and wealth was created by a welfare mom who hand-wrote a manuscript on a subway as she headed to work? My kids didnt know what I meant by value so I explained further. Value is created when someone appreciates something be it a good meal, a good book, a movie or even when someone might have a better job or other exciting adventure due to something that was created. Here because JK Rowlings imagination created the world of Harry Potter in written form it spawned the books, of course but also the movies and all sorts of things. And true value is eventually what spawns wealth. My daughters got excited by the idea, and caught on quickly. They identified all sorts of value that would not have otherwise been impossible but for the imagination of JK Rowling. Daniel Radcliffe (who played Harry Potter in the feature films), for example, may not have ever become an actor. All sorts of people from the rest of the movie cast, to publishers, to screenwriters, to movie production staff all had interesting jobs that may never have been possible but for the Harry Potter books, and Rowlings imagination. Universal studios even built a replica of Hogwarts inside of its Universal Studios, allowing all sorts of people who visit Orlando to have an enjoyable experience, notwithstanding creating jobs for architects, builders and craftsmen. So there was likely billions of dollars created out of one womans imagination. My daughters started to think about others imaginations that had similar impact. The list goes on and on. Aside from entertainment you have those who work in technology to medicine to transportation. And, by the way thats why America is one of the greatest nations on earth, because our culture fosters and encourages imagination. We dont care about how things were done under the old way. We are always looking for the new, improved version of things. So how does all of this relate to estate planning? I think it does in many ways. Ones estate and financial plan could be a stamped out carbon copy of many others or it could have an imaginative outlook that instead fosters the values, hopes and dreams of its creator. The man who owns and runs the family business has any number of ways that he can leverage that knowledge, wealth and expertise for the next generation aside from just turning over the keys. The retiree who has the wonderful beach cottage could create a family compound that is enjoyed and valued by future generations. The man who slowly built family wealth through shrewd investment management can impart those skills with those he loves with the use of imaginative trust provisions. When thinking about your own planning, I would suggest you not think about your death so much as your life. What are your hopes and dreams for yourself and your spouse? In the next three years, what do you hope to do and to accomplish? What obstacles might stand in the way of those hopes and dreams? What opportunities exist that can help you overcome those obstacles? What are your existing resources that you can capitalize on but havent yet? If you were to sit down and honestly answer those questions, I would suspect that you might become excited about the future. The future would look like it harbors all sorts of possibilities, as opposed to the same old stuff youve been caught in over the last several years. After youve done that exercise for yourself, use your imagination to the benefit of your children or if you have them, grandchildren. What are your hopes and dreams for them? What do you hope they will accomplish? What obstacles do they have to accomplishing their dreams? What resources are at their disposal and how might you complement those resources? When I speak of resources, by the way, Im not necessarily talking about financial assets or wealth. The kid who has the drive and energy to put himself through college by earning good grades, getting scholarships, working part-time jobs and supplementing all of that with student loans is a kid who has used all of the available resources that he has at his disposal. I bet you and your family have untold value locked up in your imaginations. I hope you can have fun tapping it sometime. Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at www.sbshlaw.com.

Call Dan at 239.472.2888 to arrange a consultation. School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, I babysit my granddaughter during the week. She turned two in May and she is a very sweet, affectionate child but I am worried about her talking. She understands what I say but she isnt saying much herself and I have a hard time understanding her. My other young grandchildren are surpassing her. Her mom doesnt seem too worried but this is her first child so she might not really know what to expect. Is there something I should be doing for her? Elvira K., via email Elvira, Spoken language (talking) emerges in infancy with cooing and babbling and develops through adulthood with the ongoing acquisition of vocabulary and higher-level language constructions. Each child is unique and develops at his or her own pace; however, it is important to know the developmental milestones she should be achieving to gauge her progress. According to the ASHA (American Speech-Language-Hearing Association) your two-year-old granddaughter should use some oneor twoword questions such as Where kitty? and Whats that, and put two words together such as more cookie and no juice and use many different consonant sounds at the beginning of words. Her vocabulary should be increasing monthly. The milestones you should see between her second and third year are having a word for almost everything, using two and three words to talk and ask for things, using K, G, F, T, D, and N sounds, and being understood by those who are familiar with her. Some of the things you can do to help her speak include using clear and simple speech that she can imitate, naming objects and describing them to her, give her synonyms for familiar words; e.g., daddy, man, grown-up, adult; then use these synonyms in sentences and daily conversation. If your granddaughter does not make the progress you expect you may want to have her evaluated. Her pediatrician can recommend a specialist. Another option is to have her evaluated by the public school system. Federal and state law requires that all public school systems provide evaluations at no cost to children who may have a disability such as a significant speech-language delay. If the child is found to have such a significant delay in one or more developmental areas the school must then provide appropriate intervention, free of charge to the child, starting at age three. For more information on this you can contact your neighborhood school for the appropriate contact person or the Board of Education. Early intervention is the best way to address developmental and learning problems. Such issues are frequently resolved when the correct interventions are put into place early in a childs development.

My Lights Are Flickering; Why?by Bryan HayesWe run into this question quite often. When the lights begin to flicker, the homeowner starts to go through the normal procedure of checking the circuit breakers only to discover they are all set properly. When that is established, there are several issues that should be considered. Is it only a single light that flickers, or do all of the lights in a particular room or part of the house do that as well? If you discover its just a single light, then usually its something as simple as a loose wire, filament or the bulb is not tightly secured in the socket. An easy enough fix, isnt it? Now, if its the scenario described above of multiple lights flickering, then something more serious could be happening. One of the possibilities is that something is arcing. Arcing is when a wire or part of the electrical service does not have a solid connection. Something similar happens in lightning, where the electricity jumps the gap. This can be a serious situation. This should not be confused with a short, although both can give off sparks. A short circuit occurs when the hot wire touches a ground or neutral. When this happens, the circuit breaker will trip, as it was designed to, and cut the power. Arcing can actually occur for a very long time without ever tripping a breaker. Arcing also creates a great deal of heat. This can be a very dangerous situation and has caused fires in the past. If you suspect this is the cause, shut down all large consumers of electricity; i.e., air conditioning, pool heat pumps, hot water heater (do this at the breaker), and fridge. Call an electrician immediately. This is not to scare you, of course, but it is always better to be safe than sorry, especially if you suspect that something is not working properly.

Christin Collins and Amy Sanford, cochairs, at the 2010 event Insurance Tip Re-inspection Results Revealedby Marge MeekThe interim statewide results are in as a result of the re-inspections to Citizens policyholders mitigation forms that give discounts for protecting homes against hurricanes. According to Citizens, policy holder premiums increased by $15.5 million on 32,628 inspections. So, if you have been re-inspected and have been notified that you have no rate increase, you are one of the few. Some of the policyholders that were up for renewal dropped wind coverage altogether, due to the premium increases. Citizens is projecting an increase of $23 million in premiums this year based on the completed re-inspections. That will more than offset the $14.5 million Citizens plans to spend on the re-inspection program. Customers who ignored attempts for Citizens to conduct the re-inspections can have their discounts removed and that already happened to 577 policyholders so far. Citizens has agreed to review information that will restore some of the credits by looking at roofing permits, invoices, receipts, product information. You should give these to your agent if you get a negative discrepancy report and your agent will work with Citizens underwriting to get the issues resolved. This is not a short process, so start at once to avoid a renewal premium increase due to reduced wind mitigation credits.

These homegrown tips are not intended to take the place of your physicians advice, nor does my printing them imply effectiveness. So dont email me if you wind up smelling like lasagna or a speed stick! Here is a sampling of the submissions: When you get bit by an insect, like a fire ant or mosquito, you just roll on plain deodorant. It works like a charm. Sandy G. I have chronic sinus (and fungal) infections. I read an article about oregano so I boiled the spice in water, let it cool to room temperature and strained it into a spray bottle. It works great! Patricia A. For RLS (restless legs syndrome), I slip a bar or two of Ivory soap under my bed sheets, down low by my calves and ankles. I have no idea why it works, but it does. Ellen M. I have a great way to relieve irritated skin, especially from when it is humid or sweat is just sitting on the skin. Make your own special body wash. Mix about four drops of 100 percent pure tea tree oil into some inexpensive body wash (or shampoo) and cleanse your skin. Keep on hand to relieve ant, flea or mosquito bites. Ginny G. You can put duct tape on a wart to starve it of oxygen. Victoria W. My wife has IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) and suffers quite a bit. We use one essential oil capsule of peppermint and it stops her cramping and soothes her stomach almost immediately. Dennis E. YES YES YES to the peppermint oil. I had some bad IBS cramps throughout my peri-menopausal years and peppermint tea (or capsules) were the only things that could stop the painful cramps! Ellen M. My husband had an infected big toe and he soaked it in a foot bath of warm water with epsom salt (about one cup) along with two or three drops of oregano oil. He did this three times daily for three days and the infection cleared. Sandy L. I had a persistent rash on my skin, and I applied coconut oil (purchase this at your local health food store) and it worked for me. Susan C. You might be able to replace narcotics such as Vicodin (hydrocodone) or Oxycontin (oxycodone sustained-release) with herbs such as Valerian Root and/ or Kava Kava. Yes, I have done this! Bethany R. When I get an upset stomach or mild heartburn, I eat some pure ginger, the candied sort that has some crystallized sugar on it. Candied ginger is sold at health food stores, not supermarkets. Dawn D. For constipation, you can eat two cooked beets (boiled, roasted or marinated) and you should have a bowel movement that day. Suzy C. My hiccups were annoying so I put good ol honey and a sprinkle of sugar on the back of my tongue and it stopped them immediately. Tracy L.

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, Our dear grandson was diagnosed as being autistic and we were shocked. As a family we decided to give him the very best of care, fight this early and then it would be over. Maybe that is the course of treatment for some illnesses and conditions, but not this one. The expenses are tremendous and he is showing no improvement and, as a matter of fact, we think he is getting worse. We have had to dip into our retirement funds and the parents are very concerned with this present economic condition, and positively cannot continue on this present course. What so you think is appropriate care? Toby Dear Toby, I am sorry to hear about your grandsons diagnosis. The causes of autism syndrome have not been identified and no one knows how to cure it. There seems to be varying degrees of this condition and these individuals are not all the same but have many common symptoms. You have tried your best to help but no amount of money spent at this time will cure your grandsons condition. Try if you can to find a public school system that has special facilities to serve exceptional children. I worked many years ago for a public school district that served children with special needs like your grandson and other diagnosable conditions.

ISLAND SUN JULY 22, 201147 Dr. DaveLogic 101by Dr. Dave HepburnA. I have spent no shortage of time in hospitals. B. Readers say to me, Dave, Ive read your columns and frankly, you are sick. Ergo, hospitals make you sick? Here are 10 reasons that could be true. Nosocomial Infections. These are infections picked up in the hospital. Institutions like hospitals, prisons, and Charlie Sheen can be bug brewing factories for MRSA (superbug), scabies, viruses and the evil C. difficile. Welcome to Ward 3, Bloggins. Here are your dinner choices and over here you can pick your nosocomials. Medication Errors. Whether by a nurse or a doctor, I should point out that if there is any question, then it is preferable to blame the nurse. Doctors write beautifully and legibly as any pharmacist will attest. I once ordered 6 U of insulin for a patient who was mistakenly given 60, as the panicked nurse gasped to me over the phone. Hows he doing? I asked. Shaky. Surgical Errors. This does not always refer to the surgeon cutting off the wrong leg, testicle or heart, but can also mean accidentally cauterizing the graplihornswaggle artery rather than the intended snorghoplaster vein. And of course there is the occasional object left behind in the patient such as a swab, scissors, scrub nurse. Adverse Drug Reactions. These are the 8th leading cause of death in North America, as, until genetic drug screening is available, drug therapy can be a bit of a shotgun approach. Be alert, aware and a tad suspect should you be ordered a new drug with names like Widocillin, Nokhel, Kriplex and Urispas (actual names of drugs). Wrong Diagnosis. Just watch any episode of House, where the staff usually takes the patient to the brink of death before Dr. Houses epiphany du jour as a basketball hits him in the left uvula giving him the idea that theyve been treating the wrong problem all along. Falls/Trauma. Hospital cleaners seem trained to add extra wax in the rooms of the most frail and confused patients. Sick and often drugged patients have to get up to take a poop and end up performing a triple lutz, ending with an unceremonious splat. Complications of Investigations. One apparent abnormality can lead to another to yet another. These so called incidentalomas can trigger aggressive or invasive investigations. Well Dr. Sealey, looks like that zit really was a zit. Okay, Ill sew the patient up, you put the catheter in and well send him to ICU. Bedsores. Decubitus ulcers can get infected and very nasty, which is why I write in the orders, apply turning over the patient like a lamb on a spit. But, my beautiful penmanship aside, this can get interpreted as apple turnover the patient until they spit. Blood Clot. Anytime a patient is not doing hot yoga and dancing the macarena 16 minutes after completing surgery, there is a risk that they could develop a blood clot in their legs. This clot can pop off and go to the lungs, uvula or Sudbury. It is vital, post operatively, to move your limbs and shake what your plastic surgeon gave ya, as wed hate to have to crack open the Widocillin. Wrong Pathology Results. This actually happened to me when I was a patient. I recognized the mistake when my biopsy report said I was expecting twins in six months! But being the astute physician I am, I quickly recognized this as a lab error. I could only hear one heartbeat. Yes readers...I might be sick. Like the column?

The most important producers of gemstones have been Tanzania, Mozambique and Madagascar. Madagascar is famous for recent discoveries of ruby and sapphire, though a number of other gemstones have been found, including tourmaline, aquamarine, and citrine. Tanzania is especially famous for tanzanite, but also has rich deposits of rhodolite and garnet, and some unique colors in zircon. Mozambique has recently become famous for its high-quality tourmaline, and most of the world supply of paraiba is now coming from Mozambique. Nigeria, the large west African nation, is the one important gemstone producer not in the Mozambique Belt. Nigeria has produced respectable blue sapphire as well as large quantities of fine tourmaline. Nigeria is also known for garnet, aquamarine and topaz. So the next time you think of the brilliant colors of an African rainforest or a golden desert, remember that those tones can be reflected in beautiful gemstones from Africa.

Adult cats may be adopted for $8 (the cost of the county pet license) and kittens may be adopted for $10. Cats and kittens are always two-for-one at Animal Services. Also, check out the vast array of dogs available for $30. Pet Bio Name: Nala Breed: Vizsla mix Sex: Spayed female Age: 2 years old Color: Brown Comments: Im not sure how I got my name. Maybe its because I remind people of Nala from the Lion King and I look like a beautiful lioness with a sleek coat and regal demeanor. Whatever the reason, the most important thing to know is that I come from a sporting breed but can be a lively, affectionate companion and a good family dog. Adoption Fee: $30 during the July Adoption Promotion Pet Bio Name: Aramis Breed: Maine Coon mix (checkout my bushy tail and ear tufts) Sex: Neutered male Age: 2 years old Color: Gray tiger with white Comments: Like my namesake, Aramis of the Three Musketeers, I value love and friendship above all. Are these qualities you are looking for in a companion? If so, stop by so we can get to know each other better. Im a cuddly lap cat and you just might be captivated by my charm and good looks too. Adoption Fee: $8 during the July Adoption Promotion. Dont forget you can get a second cat free.
