Just about everything as it turns out at least thats how we look at things. Omni cellula e cellula translates as the origination of cells are cells that cells come (only) from cells; it was the fundamental idea of the Cell Theory which is a tenant in studies of the cellular basis of life on this planet. continued on page 14 Samantha Bohl is about to get flipped by counselor Frank Kolencik Jivan Khakee sizes up his surfing rivals in the surfing competition Sweet 16 Party Yields Donation For Childrenby Emilie AlfinoQuick: describe your average 16-yearold girl. Youd probably name qualities like self-involved, overly concerned with materialistic things, always on her phone or MP3 or iPad and completely unaware of the world around her, and always wanting to party. At her Sweet 16 party, a girl traditionally expects even more and more expensive presents. Well, that description is all wrong for Sanibel 16-year-old Paige Law except for the fact that she loves parties. She and 78 of her closest friends gathered late Friday, July 29 at the Family Fun Center in Fort Myers not only to celebrate her birthday but to raise money for the Chamber of Hope Hyperbaric Center for Children. No presents were allowed but guests had to make a donation to get in the door. My friends think its great, Paige said. Its a great way to have fun. The party was a glow dance party. Students were given glow items to wear and glow paint to paint their bodies. There was food, music, and dancing in the dark. I didnt know it was going to be this big of a deal. Im in shock that everyone is so happy, Paige said. I didnt realize it would affect so many people. The Chamber of Hope Hyperbaric Center for Children is located in St. Petersburg, Florida, and provides mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy (mHBOT) to children using portable oxygen chambers. They provide this treatment, which can cost anywhere from $1,800 to $4,000 an hour, free of charge. This type of oxygen therapy can aid healing and improve the lives of people afflicted with autism, cerebral palsy, near drowning injuries, shaken baby syndrome, Crohns and Lyme diseases, stroke, traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries, and a host of other neurological and physical disabilities. Paige knows this for a fact. She injured her leg playing soccer and was referred for mHBOT treatment to accelerate the recovery time. In a few days, she saw her footballsize wound shrink to the size of a quarter. Naturally, her parents Wendy and Rod Law became more interested. Mom basically heard hyperbaric oxygen therapy and went crazy, Paige said. My parents got crazy about it. In fact, as a family the Laws recently opened a for-profit business renting the continued on page 20 Birthday girl Paige Law, a soccer star, presents an honorary team ball to Manny, who suffered a heart attack and is undergoing hyperbaric oxygen therapy, just as Paige did Paige (in the black top) and some of the more than 200 attendees form a dance line as the party gets goingCity Budget Will Pay Down Debt, Save Moneyby Anne MitchellPaying down debt is the goal of the Sanibel City Council as it prepares a budget for fiscal year 2011-12, but the question is where are the greatest savings to be made if council opts to pay more. Some debt paydown is already included in the draft budget, but by combining reserves from various accounts, council is exploring other potential savings by reducing or retiring sewer and pension debts. City debt totals $44.7 million, which costs Sanibel about $4.3 million a year in principal and interest payments. The largest debts are $34.1 million for the sewer system and $7.5 for the recreation center. A further $3 million is owed on the purchase of Pond Apple Park. The two pension funds police and general employees are problematic because they compound annually at 8 percent and 7 percent respectively. Out of the $2 million the city pays each year, only about $700,000 goes to the principal. As proposed, the budget would pay down the pension plans unfunded liability by $2,552,016. If we were to pay down some debt, where would we get the greatest benefit? said Mayor Kevin Ruane. After hearing a debt analysis Tuesday from Finance Director Sylvia Edwards, council decided 5-0 to approve a $1 million loan from the general fund to the sewer system. Council also voted unanimously to budget the $1 million interfund loan, $562,878 from the sewer fund restricted cash and a $2.96 million principal paydown of the sewer systems state loan. Mayor Ruane said the council should continue to live within our means, continued on page 6

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 5, 20114 Mystery Surrounding Burnap Cottage Solved By Former ResidentA mystery concerning the Burnap Cottage at the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village seems to have been cleared up to some extent. Anne Kearns, a Sanibel resident from 1966 to 1981, visited the museum this past week to discuss what really happened out at Woodring Point the night Nellie Brewster passed away at her home in Pennsylvania in 1967. When the Brewsters purchased the old Burnap Cottage, built by Sam Woodring in 1898, they added on a second story. Nellie Brewsters bedroom was upstairs with a large picture window overlooking the point. Over the double bed was a light with a pull chain. Sometime in 1967, Nellie and her husband had gone north and Nellie had left Anne the key, asking her to keep an eye on the place while they were gone. Anne and her husband, Ralph Cimato, lived next door on Woodring Point in a home that had been owned by Tommy Woods, the first federal employee of the JN Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge. At 1 a.m. one morning, Anne noticed a light glowing from Nellies bedroom. The home and windows were locked and, thinking there might be a burglar prowling around, Anne asked her husband to investigate. Ralph was reluctant to go out at that hour, but they did go over to the Brewster home after the sun was up. The light was still burning, but the lamps connection seemed to be loose. Ralph determined that, although odd, the light had somehow flickered on because of a loose bulb. He tightened the bulb and pulled the chain to cut the electricity. Several weeks later, Anne met Esperanza Woodring on the road. Esperanza told Anne she had received a letter from the Brewster family with the news that Nellie had passed away. Anne asked Esperanza the date of Nellies death. When Esperanza responded, Anne was surprised. Nellie Brewster had possibly died the same evening the light was seen in her Sanibel bedroom. When Anne told Esperanza the story, she said Esperanza turned as white as a ghost. Esperanza told Anne that some people believed when a person died, their spirit moves through as final farewell. Could Nellies spirit have caused the light in her bedroom to shine? Whether the mystery has been explained or not, Anne knows what she saw, and after almost 45 years, she still remembers the night Nellie Brewster passed away as if it happened yesterday. The Burnap Cottage is now at The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village. The Brewsters second story addition was removed and the more historic original fish camp building was restored. The historical museum will be closed, beginning August 7, and re-open for another season on Wednesday, November 2. Stop by next season and visit the Burnap Cottage. Former Sanibel resident Anne Kearns recently stopped by the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village with her granddaughter Alana Cimato. Kearns has compiled a series of scrapbooks with remembrances and mementos of her time on Sanibel. They are being kept at Cips Place restaurant.

5 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 5, 2011 Captiva Community Panel Completes Planting Project, Installs 100+ Trees On Islands Public LandsThe Captiva Community Panel has completed its most recent tree planting project on the island, planting more than 100 trees on public lands and rightsof-way at no cost to islanders. This was achieved through a $17,200 no-match Urban and Community Forestry grant from the Florida Division of Forestry (part of the state Deptartment of Agriculture and Consumer Services), funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and the U.S. Forest Service. Native species were planted at Turner Beach, along Andy Rosse Lane and in selected locations on Captiva Drive. This work was done by the Native Plant Nursery of the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation, and overseen by the state forestry agency and various county agencies. Species were selected based on their suitability to the planting site, of particular concern for those locations nearer to the gulf. Property owners adjacent to prospective planting sites were consulted as to their willingness to support the new vegetation, with trees installed only in those sites where adjacent owners concurred. Work was delayed until as late in the spring as possible under the grant deadlines to accommodate the areas extra dry conditions and in hopes that the start of the rainy season would lessen the need for independent watering of the new plants. While a few of the new plants struggled as drought conditions persisted, most have recovered now that summer rains have commenced, and should be in good shape by the time a state inspection is conducted in midAugust. Noted panel administrator Ken Gooderham: The support of key island property owners, in conjunction with the flexibility of the Native Plant Nursery, made this project possible. Particularly along Andy Rosse Lane, the property owners pulled together to make this happen very quickly, hopefully creating a unique asset for the community... and putting trees in public places where they might not otherwise be planted, all at no cost to islanders. Having to change gears and locations as conditions shifted meant the nursery had to adjust its plans as well, all while keeping an eye on the weather and the availability of plants, Gooderham continued. It was an outstanding team effort, one we hope will pay dividends for Captiva in the years to come. This is the second planting project undertaken by the Community Panel, following the state reforestation effort launched after the 2004 hurricane season to restore tree canopies across the state. Completed in the fall of 2007, the first program offered a subsidy through the Florida Division of Forestry that allowed Captivans to purchase trees from the SCCF Native Plant Nursery at a 75 percent discount, helping to aid in re-growth of the islands native vegetation devastated by Hurricane Charley. The $125,000 program added nearly 1,000 new trees to the island.

He added that the next debt council must tackle is that of the recreation center. The draft budget totals $46.76 million, $2.7 million greater than the current budget. It includes $2.8 million for general government capital improvements of which $1 million of capital projects are rolled over from the prior years and $1.8 million is allocated for new projects. In July, 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 $400,000 would pay about $862 based on the proposed millage. The first budget meeting is scheduled for Saturday, September 10 at 9 a.m. with a final meeting set for Tuesday, September 20 at 5:01 p.m. Corner Grill Can Have Outdoor Seatingby Anne MitchellOutdoor tables and chairs may soon appear at George & Wendys Corner Grill now that the Sanibel City Council has formally approved an amendment to the required minimum setback from the road. City Planner Roy Gibson told the council on Tuesday that the amendment will apply to that restaurant only because its part of the planned unity development that covers Baileys Shopping Center in which it is located. The amendment also reduces the number of parking spaces required and the need for a vegetation buffer. The planning commission found it to be consistent with the Sanibel Plan and the land development code, Gibson noted. They also made recommendation to the city council to enact the amendment... Planning Director Jim Jordan said the restaurant doesnt meet the island-wide 100-foot required setback. But a planned unit development is a separate entity from the rest of the island and has separate rules. Hurricane Hero Logs 25 Yearsby Anne MitchellThe proclamation to mark Mike Henrys 25 years service with the City of Sanibel didnt tell the whole story. In 2004, the year Hurricane Charley hit the islands, Henry worked so hard as part of the official clean-up and recovery crew that he went down with exhaustion. After being treated and rehydrated, Henry was soon back on the job. He was awesome, said Councilman Jim Jennings. The proclamation read by Mayor Kevin Ruane noted that Michael Henry joined the public works department as a service worker on August 11, 1986. continued on page 8 Mike Henry of the public works department being honored for 25 years service by Mayor Kevin RuaneRay Of Sunshine Retires From CityMargaret Gills second career after retirement turned into a 21-year stint in the City of Sanibels finance department. She was honored by the city council on Tuesday upon her retirement. According to Mayor Kevin Ruane, who read a proclamation about Gill, she retired from the United Telephone Company and began her work with the City of Sanibel as a Kelly Girl in the finance department and was eventually employed as a part-time employee in 1990. Margaret has served the citizens of Sanibel as an exemplary part-time employee... for 21 years where her attendance, spirit and commitment has served as a role model for her peers, he said. Gill is a member of the Fort Myers Art League and an artist in oils and watercolors; she also does needlework, pine needle weaving, sewing and is an avid follower of current events and politics. It has been so, so much fun... I have loved every moment of working for the City of Sanibel and I think this is a magic place, Gill said.

This year was especially nice because he gave us an update on one of the recipients of a Kiwanis Scholarship his son! Blake Sobczak in currently enrolled at Northwestern in the McGill School of Journalism. (The apple didnt fall too far!) His proficiency in the Arabic language has allowed him to work overseas with the State Department. Currently he is in Morocco in North Africa where Charlie and his wife Mollie recently had a chance to visit him. While there, the family toured Kruger National Park where Charlie saw some of the big five game animals. Before that, Blake was in Qatar in the Persian Gulf. Hopefully one day Blake will come back to speak to us about his worldly travels. If this education appeals to you or someone you know, please note that Kiwanis has added another scholarship and increased the amount of each of our scholarships we hand out every year. Contact any Kiwanian for more information. Charlie spent most of his presentation on his latest set of books: Living Sanibel and Living Gulf Coast. Living Sanibel is currently ranked number 32 out of all nature guides available on Out of 10,000 books printed, Charlie has sold over 6,000, and it continues to be the talk of the town with both visitors and residents. Who would have ever thought a bear and coyote could be roaming the streets of Sanibel. Lock up your children and snowy plovers. Living Gulf Coast is also becoming a very popular guide for those exploring nature preserves from the Everglades to Sarasota. Mollie and Charlie have visited 65 local preserves and discovered 116 species of reptiles and amphibians. Looking for the Everglades kite (bird)? Go to Harnes Marsh Preserve in Lehigh Acres. Looking to kayak with 300 manatees up to 14 feet long? Go to Manatee Park in Fort Myers. All of this information can be found in Charlies book. Unless he was just skunked on a recent fishing trip, he will most likely autograph a book if you want one. Looking to watch 90 or so wild but mostly social animals eat as much as they can in 45 minutes? Come to a Kiwanis breakfast Tuesday mornings at The Dunes. If you are looking for something to do this summer, please grab your twofor-one Kiwanis Dinner Book, and go out for a night on the town. If you have not yet purchased your books, there are still a few left at the Sanibel Captiva Community Bank and Bank of the Islands. From page 6Hurricane HeroHe was promoted to tradesworker on March 11, 1991. In 2004, Henry was selected by his peers as the employee of the quarter for the 4th quarter in recognition of his unstinting work on hurricane recovery. Henry will complete his 25 years on August 11. Charlie Sobczak Trash Collection Fees To Go Downby Anne MitchellA Lee County reduction in per ton charges for garbage and vegetation disposal means Sanibel property owners will see lower bills next year. The trash collection rate has been lowered from $55 to $40 per ton, while the vegetation disposal rate for both residential and commercial customers will be $22 per ton. The proposed new residential rate is $280.38 per year compared to the current annual rate of $289.06, reflecting a 3 percent decrease. The proposed commercial curb side rates are decreasing by approximately 2 percent, while dumpster rates are decreasing by about 3.1 percent. The Sanibel City Council on Tuesday approved the recurring annual assessment to be levied through property taxes. This is the second year collection is being done this way, rather than by direct billing. Veolia ED Solid Waste Southeast, Inc. has a five-year solid waste franchise with the city dating to May 2010. Vice Mayor Mick Denham commented, I have heard no complaints or problems with the service we have received.


9 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 5, 2011 Captiva Community Panel MeetingThe Captiva Community Panel will hold its regular monthly meeting on Tuesday, August 9, beginning at 9 a.m. in the Wakefield Room at Tween Waters Inn, 15951 Captiva Drive. This meeting is open to all interested islanders and the public. Among the agenda items: Discussion about the Lee County workshop on the proposed Captiva building height amendment to the Lee Plan. A Captiva Erosion Prevention District update. A Hurricane Preparedness and Response Committee update. Other matters as necessary. Public participation is invited and encouraged. The next Captiva Community Panel meetings will be September 6 and October 11. Information is available online at www. In another meeting later this month, proposed restrictions on the height of buildings in Captiva will be discussed at a workshop sponsored by Lee County Community Development on Wednesday, August 17, 9 to 10:30 a.m., at the Captiva Island Yacht Club, 15903 Captiva Drive. This update to existing height restrictions is being proposed through an amendment to the Lee Plan, which was submitted by the Captiva Community Panel. In general, the amendment would allow an option for building height to be 28 feet above the base flood elevations required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Some exceptions may be made for architectural features, like cupolas and dormers, and for mechanical appurtenances. This option would be in addition to existing language that generally restricts building heights to 35 feet above the average grade of the lot or 42 feet above sea level, whichever is lower.

For more information call 433-4901 or email Sacraments In ReviewFrom its earliest years, the church has engaged in certain rituals that are designed to remind participants of Gods presence in their lives. Traditionally, the church has ascribed the institution of these rituals, called sacraments, to Jesus Christ. Today, Christians acknowledge different numbers of rituals as being sacraments. Roman Catholics and others celebrate seven sacraments, while most Protestants celebrate only two, Baptism and the Eucharist, or Holy Communion. Over the course of history these two sacraments have been understood in a variety of ways and practiced in a number of different formats. As part of its Summer Sunday Seminar Series, the Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ will hold a two-part course called Sacraments in Review: Communion and Baptism which will examine the theology and history of their development. The course will be held in the churchs Heron Hall on Sundays, August 7 and 14, at 9 a.m. and will be led by Senior Pastor, the Rev. John H. Danner, PhD. The public is invited.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 5, 201114 From page 1Omni Cellula E CellulaSo how does this relate to manatees? Manatees are consummate herbivores the cows of the sea. To understand how they can survive on a diet of seagrass, we have to understand a little about the basic building blocks of plants: cells. We have to begin to understand how plant cells are different from animal cells and require different digestion. So to understand how manatees thrive in our rich seagrass communities, at Sanibel Sea School we learned about the cellular basis of all living things. Pretty cool stuff for a week at summer camp. Of course, we also wanted to understand manatee propulsion so we had monofin races. We seined for fish, snorkeled on seagrass beds, found octopus and seahorses. We made life-sized sand sculptures of manatees; we surfed afternoon squalls, made manatee style ear bone beads from clay and used metal detectors to find buried treasures. At the end of the week, we visited Baileys Grocery Store to make sidewalk art and educate the public about these marine mammals that are so iconic to Southwest Florida. All in all, it was a great week. We learned a lot about the life surrounding us on our ocean planet. We rekindled old friendships, made new ones and created memories that will last a lifetime. Not bad for a week of summer camp. We are grateful to the many supporters of our summer programs. These include: Baileys Grocery Store, the Island Cow, Sanibel Community Association, Big Red Q, Billys Bikes, R.S. Walsh Landscaping; scholarship funding is provided by the SanibelCaptiva Kiwanis Club. Sanibel Sea School is a Sanibel-based non-profit foundation that looks to a world where all people value, understand and care for the ocean.

Matt MitchellIf you have not heard yet, snook season on the gulf coast of Florida will not happen again this year. The September 1, 2011 opening will be postponed until at least September, 2012. The east coast of Florida will have a snook season this year. According to Florida Wildife Commission (FWC) research, breeding size snook on the east coast did much better than our west coast fish because of their close proximity to warmer deeper water during the 2010 snook kill. Only catch-and-release snook fishing has been allowed statewide since December 15, 2010. In my opinion our local snook numbers are down and anything that can be done to help this premier gamefish species in Southwest Florida for the future is great with me. If you are looking for food fish there are plenty of other options. Maybe the FWC should open up Goliath grouper for a limited harvest. This would help our nearshore wreck snook population too. Near perfect high tides during the mid morning hours all last week made redfish my target species. Though not in huge numbers, the redfish action was very consistent as long as you kept moving around. I spent most of my time bouncing around keys in the middle to southern sound, from Panther Key south to Maciever Keys. I also got on a good bite fishing the no-motor zone in Wulfert Keys a few mornings. Cut bait and shrimp were the baits of choice to get in on the redfish bite. Ladyfish chunks and cut pinfish skipped way up under the trees caught reds to 28 inches. Most were on the smaller end of the slot though. Working the wind-blown side of mangrove islands allowed you to anchor way out and lob the bait up close, not letting the redfish know you were even there. When beating the bushes for reds, I concentrate on mangrove heads and points. Look for mangroves that stick out of the islands along with any cuts and large shady overhangs that enable you to get the bait up even tighter. On these big high tides the redfish can be very far under the trees. Find somewhere on the shoreline that they have to be a little further out; it can make all the difference. Like most redfish fishing I do, if you dont get a bite within five to 10 minutes, keep moving. Some points and cuts held up to three or four fish then it was time to go further down the shoreline. The only drawback to this kind of cut bait fishing is you catch catfish. These catfish can be a real pain but you might also catch a snook, trout or mangrove snapper. With the water temperature so hot, fish prefer not having to chase down a live bait. They prefer to just grab a chunk soaked on the bottom as it is an easy meal. While out fishing with Paul Wilson of St. James city last week, our cut bait redfish action was broken up by one of the bigger snook I have caught all year. Paul had family in town and wanted to get them in on some fishing action. Dodging rain storms, we stayed close to home working shorelines in Wulfert Keys on the big flood tide. After catching a few bigger mangrove snapper and redfish on cut baits Wilson hooked a fish that took off like a freight train. The fish made a couple of big runs, flirting with the mangrove roots and was pretty much unstoppable on the light spinning tackle. When the fish finally got close enough to the boat I was surprised to see it was huge snook. We carefully lifted it out of the water, got a few photos and gently released the 38-inch, 19-pound monster. Big snook like cut bait too!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.

Par ents 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 a favorite book is calling, or you crave a meal accompanied by just grown-up conversations. Parents may have a vision of walking hand-in-hand down the beach linking with only one set of hands theirs. Now parents can drop the children off and enjoy 2 hours of guilt-free adult time. The children wont even know theyre 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, and 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: August 9,11, 16,18, 23, 25, 30 and September 1. To register call Diane Thomas, the museums public programs specialist, at 3952233, or email Registration is required by 3 p.m. Monday for Tuesday sessions, and 3 p.m. Wednesday for Thursday sessions. Shell-related crafts are a favorite part of the resort program

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 5, 201120 Shell Museum Director Speaks At ConferenceThe Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum Director Dr. Jos Leal was a featured speaker at the annual American Malacological Society (AMS) conference held at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh. The AMS, founded in 1931, is an international group of professionals, students and organizations that has an interest in the study and conservation of mollusks. Dr. Leal was president of the AMS in 2003-04, and he is currently a council representative and a member of the endowment committee. For his presentation, Dr. Leal spoke about the relevance of The Nautilus, which is an international, peer-reviewed, non-profit, quarterly journal that publishes articles pertaining to the biology, ecology and systematics of mollusks. The journal was established in Philadelphia in 1886, and it is currently published by The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum, with Dr. Leal having served as editor since 1998. Dr. Leal attended AMS conferences when he was a college student, and he credits connections he made during these meetings with helping him secure post-doctorate appointments and even his directors job at the shell museum. Seeing old friends and making new ones is why he eagerly attends this event every year. It was great to be back in touch with so many of my professional colleagues and meeting the two ends of the spectrum, he said, like the very young up and coming malacologists, as well as some of the ladies and gentlemen that were my inspiration when I was that age, when I was an up and coming malacologist. Everyone is looking forward to meeting the next person or chatting with the next person and learning as much as they can from each other. Before the AMS conference, Dr. Leal also spoke at the Conchologists of America conference in July. The COA is the worlds largest shell collectors organization. Given the (shell museums) mission to being involved in the education about shells and related subjects, we try to cover all bases, Dr. Leal said. One is the shell collectors society, the other one is the shell professionals society. I belong to a very special group that bridges the two universes, if you will. From page 1Sweet 16 Partychambers because they have actually seen their successes in treating various issues. In addition, the St. Petersburg Chamber of Hope is the closest facility with hyperbaric oxygen chambers. It was a visit to the Chamber of Hope that sparked the party-as-fundraiser idea, and Paige was all for it. I dont want to get presents, so I said, Why dont we do that? Paige said. She plans to stay involved and hopes to visit the St. Petersburg center every month. Hardy Bryan of the Chamber of Hope said, Most 16-year-old girls want a car, and this cool young lady just wanted to have a party with all of her friends and donate her money to a worthy cause. My God, if the world was filled with people like her! What a wonderful person. Paiges goal was to raise $1,000 at the party and she broke it by a mile, raising more than $1,900. She and her parents will go up to the Chamber of Hope next month to present the check. After that, Paige will start her junior year at Bishop Verot; she wants to study international business at the same school her sister Amber, 18, is attending, Stetson University; Amber is studying health science.

Do you have a love for people and shells? If so, then the BaileyMatthews Shell Museum would be a great place to spend some quality moments with other shell lovers. Volunteer opportunities can be customized to suit your skills, interests and schedule, so you dont have to be a shell expert to help at the Shell Museum. If you know something about shells, there are things to do with the public or behind the scenes. If not, perhaps you and other volunteers can chat about your summer plans while you prepare membership mailings. All volunteers are provided with on-site training and orientation, a museum membership, and store and event discounts. Volunteers living off-island will receive Sanibel causeway toll reimbursements. There are so many places that volunteers can make a difference, said Diane Thomas, public program specialist for the museum. Their talents allow us to inform and educate visitors and ensure that they get the most out of their visit to the museum. Exhibit Hall docent Patricia Williams of Fort Myers signed on as a volunteer four years ago. Its a really interesting job, she said. Theres certainly a lot more to shells than one would imagine. I think I learn something new every time I come. Its just a really fun, interesting way to spend a few hours. Current volunteer opportunities include: Curatorial Assistant: Organize the shells in the scientific reference selection. (Does not require shell expertise; mentoring will be provided). Education or Group Docent: Work with scheduled student and adult tour groups (which may include beach walks and shelling talks). Docents participate in a structured program designed to educate the public about shells and mollusks, their role in the environment, and conservation practices related to mollusks. Education Office: Assist the education team with mailings, copying, data input, and information preparation of hands-on activities for the public and adopt-a-class teacher support materials. Educational Programs and Tour Guide: Conduct public presentations and tours for both permanent and special exhibitions (including live touch tank) designed for school groups and adult tour groups. Exhibit Hall Docent: Provide interpretive services for visitors regarding museum exhibits and the importance of shells in the natural world. Library: Help with cataloging, sorting, storage, data entry and retrieval. Museum Store: Assist with the daily store operations, stock inventory, wrap packages, and help customers. (Volunteers applying for this position must be willing to learn to operate the computerized cash register and enter sales transactions.) Office Assistant: Process mailings, input data, and assist with various office tasks. Public Relations/ Marketing/Graphic Design: Assist with newsletter and collateral material development, PSA and press release development and distribution, survey development and analysis, database management, writing and editing. Special Events: Provide support by serving in museum booths at community events, helping with craft activities, or guiding visitors through museum gallery. Junior/Youth Docent (trained volunteers between the ages of 12 and 18): Help museum visitors and/or campers better understand and appreciate the importance of mollusks and their shells in nature, history, and culture (includes live touch tank).

Red tides have been known about since the 1840s from Floridas gulf coast and their effects were noted even in Spanish explorers logbooks from the 1600s. There are more than 60 inlets in Florida. On Floridas east coast theyre called inlets. On its west coast theyre known as passes. Santa Rosa Island is Floridas longest island, at about 40 miles. Florida has more barrier islands than any other state. Of Floridas 35 lighthouses, 26 are still lit each night. A scallop can propel itself about 20 feet by forcing jets of water from its shell. Some sharks can detect the heartbeat of a flounder buried in sand. Like cats, sharks eyes glow in the dark because of a special membrane behind the retina, called a tapetal plate, which reflects light back to the lens.

CROW Case Of The Week: Mangrove Cuckooby Emilie AlfinoCROW has seen quite a few yellowbilled cuckoos, but Dr. Amber McNamara doesnt think theyve ever had a mangrove cuckoo until now. A call came in from the director of the Florida Keys Wild Bird Center about three patients it was requesting to transfer to CROW. Two of them were royal terns the people at the center felt needed some flight space which they didnt have to offer at that time, and the third was a mangrove cuckoo that had been there for four days. He had been found on the side of the road with a fractured leg. Their assumption was that he probably was flying across the road and got clipped by a car. The center asked if it could transfer these three birds up to CROW for care, and they arrived on June 13. The cuckoo was very alert when he came in, a little on the thin side, and had a fractured right leg near his foot, Dr. Amber said. He really didnt want to do much with the leg or grip with the foot at all. Cuckoos present some special concerns when injured. The problem with the cuckoo is often theyre stressed in a captive situation and they dont want to eat very well. They eat quite a few caterpillars in the wild and often they dont appreciate the bugs we offer them, Dr. Amber explained. So the staff at CROW faced two challenges in healing the mangrove cuckoo. I felt we could heal the leg very well, but if we do that but the bird doesnt eat, were not making very much progress, Dr. Amber said. The doctor was able to put a splint on the leg with paper tape and thankfully within about three days, something was discovered that the finicky bird liked to eat: superworms. Superworms are insect larvae that can grow to 2 inches long. They are easily digested, nutritious and popular as a food for pet reptiles and, in this case, for one wounded mangrove cuckoo. We also were tubing him some medication once a day and we continued that until we were certain he was eating well, said Dr. Amber. At that point we wanted to put him in a situation where we didnt have to handle him because he was so stressed, and every time we handled him we risked damaging the healing that was going on in that leg. On June 17, the patient was moved to a minimal handling cage. We gave him some different perches and no longer had to grab him every single day. We would go three or four days without handling him and then we would go in and take out the top layer of towels and give him fresh food and that was about it for the maintenance, Dr. Amber explained. Since he was so stressed, it was pretty quick. On June 24, the splint came off and the birds leg felt quite good to the doctor. I was really happy with it, Dr. Amber said. We gave him some injectable calcium. Since he was just eating worms with no variety in this diet, we were worried he might be getting deficient. That was his second injection of this type. The cuckoo was able to go out to an This mangrove cuckoo came to CROW from the Florida Keys Wild Bird Center The cuckoo is a fussy eater in captivity, which can threaten his recovery. These large, nutritious worms substituted for the caterpillars he loves to eat in the wild. I CANNOT TELL A LIE...IT'S SIMPLY THE BEST... I CANNOTTELL A LIE...IT'S SIMPLY THE BEST...

We were fortunate with this bird to have a couple of volunteers who drive down to the Keys regularly, and they were able to meet with the director of the Wild Bird Center and arrange to get the cuckoo back to his home area. Even though Im sure there are mangrove cuckoos around here, I wanted to make sure he got back to his home territory. Dr. Amber explained. They took him down to the Keys on July 8 and the director showed them where the birds territory was. I heard that the release went really great.

She has been diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia and started chemotherapy approximately six weeks ago. Claire began complaining that her hip was hurting about two months ago and when she would no longer walk on it, the doctors began testing. It was at this time she was diagnosed. Acute lymphoblastic leukemia can be cured, but aggressive treatment is crucial. Claires parents, Matt and Anna, are missionaries who came to ECHO (Education Concerns for Hunger Organizations) in Fort Myers for training to be missionaries in Africa. Due to Claires condition, the family will not be able to go to Africa as planned in October and are currently living at the ECHO facility and finances are becoming a hardship for Claires treatment. The family also has a one-year-old daughter, Isabel. Friends and members of the Vineyard Church in Fort Myers are working to help the family and are holding a fundraising fishing tournament on Saturday, August 6 at the Sanibel Causeway. The tournament begins at 7 a.m. and runs to 1 p.m. There will be a lunch and raffle and prizes will be awarded.

Theatre Conspiracy Picks Top Three Playsby Di SaggauThe annual fundraiser for Theatre Conspiracy, held recently, decided the winning play in its 14th annual New Play Contest. Following a festive reception with food and wine, participants were treated to readings of the top three plays. Point of interest: Julia Brothers, daughter of local actor John Brothers, is headed for Broadway where she will start with Marlo Thomas in Relatively Speaking, opening in October. Prior to the readings, Producing Artistic Director Bill Taylor said he received 291 entrees from around the U.S. and Canada. The audience listened to readings from the top three and then cast their votes. The contenders were Writers Cramp Or How Will Shakespeare Got Into Show Biz, by Larry Glaister of New Mexico; Glorious Roses by Tony Howarth of New York; and Invasion of Privacy, by Larry Parr of Florida. And the winner is (drum roll please) Invasion of Privacy, which will be a full stage production at Theatre Conspiracy in October. The drama looks at Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Yearling. At the height of her career, plagued by alcoholism and what her friends and neighbors describe as black spells, she becomes ensnared in a privacy trial that turns into a spectacle in a small Florida town. Theatre Conspiracys 2011-12 season was also announced. December, Beckys New Car; January, Will Stutts as Walt Whitman; February, The Exonerated, March, The School For Wives. The season opens August 12 with a dark comedy Elsewhere, the second place winner in last years new play contest. Mark your calendars now. For more information call 936-3239.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 5, 201128 A Laughing Matter At Off Broadway Palmby Di SaggauTake one London cab driver, mix in his two wives, a flamboyant gay neighbor, an extrovert lodger, two bumbling detectives and you have a night of uproarious laughter. Run For Your Wife, a great classic farce by Ray Cooney, is playing at the Off Broadway Palm and the audiences are loving it and laughing out loud. Victor Legarreta is John Smith, the London cab driver with two lives and two wives. Mary is played by his real wife, Kelly. Rachael Endrizzi is cast as wife number two, Barbara. One lives in Wimbledon and one in Streatham. John manages to negotiate his double life by using his little black book. In it are codes to keep him in the right place at the right time. For example, CDWB translates to Cuddly day with Barbara. Johns complicated life is going well until he is involved in a mugging and ends up in the hospital. As the police investigate they discover there are two John Smiths at two different addresses. Let the fun begin. The single set has half the stage devoted to one flat and half to the second. As the show opens both wives are trying to phone their husband who is late arriving home. One thinks he works the late shift, while the other thinks he works the early shift. A detective brings John home to Mary, praising him for his heroism during the mugging incident. John is groggy with a bandaged head, and all of a sudden he realizes hes supposed to be at Barbaras home. His lodger Stanley (Joel Stigliano) from the top flat at Wimbledon tries to help John out and ends up getting totally embroiled in his secret bigamous goings on. The plot thickens as more and more lies are told. Legarreta makes a superb John Smith with his facial expressions and chaotic running around. Where did he get those red shorts? Stigliano will have you in stitches as he desperately tries to help John keep his lives in order. Miguel Cintron is a riot as Barbaras colorful upstairs gay neighbor, Bobby, and Mrs. Legarreta and Endrizzi do a terrific job as the two wives. Robert Feigenblatt and James Lane also deserve praise for their roles as the two detectives. One of the funniest scenes involves chewing up an entire double spread of a newspaper. It brought a few anxious moments to people in the front row. Director Paul Bernier is to be congratulated for the high standard of performances from his whole cast.

Im very excited about Square One and honored to be the first playwright chosen, said Szymkowicz. First of all, I get to go to four cities Ive never been to before and make theater there, meet theater people. But also, I get to work on a play with different casts and directors. There are advantages to working with the same people over and over but sometimes it helps to have fresh eyes when youre developing something. Everyone sees your play from their own perspective and brings that to it. That can be helpful when youre trying to decide what works. To be able to be a part of a group like this and have a playwright of Adams caliber involved is exactly the thing Theatre Conspiracy exists for, said Theatre Conspiracys Producing Artistic Director Bill Taylor. Just look at Adams resum and you know he is someone you would love to work with.

It is estimated that at least 30 percent of the girls entrapped by traffickers have no other risk factor other than their age. As Rachel Lloyd, founder of GEMS, one of the premier organizations working with young girls today, said in her book Girls Like Us: Children are vulnerable by virtue of being children. Getting frustrated with parents, thinking you are invincible, engaging in risky behavior, being interested in relationshipswanting to belong, confusing messages about love and sex, and a desire to be independent all make even a well-adjusted teen vulnerable. The ARTREACH program aims to empower girls to not only make them safer, but to empower others as well. Participants will learn about human trafficking on a global, national and local level and how to use art as a way to educate others. Nola Theiss, a nationally recognized educator on human trafficking, and Gari Lewis, an art instructor, and other volunteers will conduct the class. No specific art background is required though an interest in art and a desire to learn more about this issue is encouraged. Enrollment is limited to 12 students. ARTREACH programs have been held six times since 2010 in Lee County and 11 paintings are currently being displayed at the Phillips Gallery at BIG ARTS through August. The classes will meet from 3 to 7 p.m. on four consecutive Monday evenings (excluding Labor Day), beginning August 22. There is no charge for the program, thanks to the generosity of BIG ARTS, the Zonta Club of SanibelCaptiva and local restaurants. Dinner and snacks will be provided and students will receive a certificate of community service. For more information on how to apply, go to html or contact Nola Theiss at nola@ or at 3952635.

31 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 5, 2011Children Reading For OthersThe Summer Reading Program at the Sanibel Public Library took a charitable turn this year. The theme was Reading for Others! Island youngsters had the opportunity to give to others as they read throughout the summer. During the program, each participant earned points by reading and completing small assignments. The points accumulated to be turned in for a book that he or she could choose for themselves and for a child at the Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida. During the final program on Tuesday, July 26, a presentation was made to the Childrens Hospital of all the books the children selected for them. Along with having fun reading this summer, the children can feel a sense of pride in giving to another. The goal set for book donations was 250 a total of 432 books were earned and donated through the program. Congratulations to the young readers on a terrific job. Reading for Others! is sponsored in part with the support of the Sanibel Public Library Foundation, Inc. and its donors.

You can now focus on getting the facts youll need for a decision youll soon be asked to make.

On Aug. 14, 1751, Francis Blandy falls into a coma and dies in his home outside London, a victim of arsenic poisoning at the hand of his daughter, Mary, who wanted his fortune and the freedom to be with her married lover. Mary was hanged from the gallows after being found guilty of murder. On Aug. 10, 1776, news reaches London that the Americans had drafted the Declaration of Independence. Until the Declaration of Independence formally transformed the 13 British colonies into states, the conflict centered in Massachusetts was seen as a local uprising. On Aug. 13, 1899, Alfred Hitchcock is born in London. His innovative mastery of suspense made him one of the most popular and influential filmmakers of the 20th century. In 1925, he directed his first film, The Pleasure Garden, a silent picture. On Aug. 11, 1934, a group of federal prisoners classified as most dangerous arrives at Alcatraz Island, a 22-acre rocky outcrop located 1 1/2 miles offshore in San Francisco Bay. Alcatraz was designed to hold prisoners with a penchant for escape attempts. Al Capone and George Machine Gun Kelly were among those housed on the Rock. On Aug. 12, 1961, East Germany begins building the Berlin Wall to divide East and West Berlin. The completed concrete block wall included sentry towers and minefields. During the lifetime of the wall, nearly 80 people were killed trying to escape from East to West Berlin. On Aug. 9, 1974, Vice President Gerald Ford is sworn in as the 38th president of the United States after the resignation of Richard Nixon. After taking the oath of office, President Ford spoke to the nation in a television address, declaring, My fellow Americans, our long national nightmare is over. On Aug. 8, 1988, the Chicago Cubs host the first night game in the history of Wrigley Field. Because of lack of lighting, for 74 seasons, the Cubs had played only day games at home. Today the Cubs are the only majorleague team that still plays the majority of its home games during the day. It was 20th-century novelist, literary critic and academic C.S. Lewis, best-known for his series The Chronicles of Narnia, who made the following sage observation: We all want THIS WEEK IN HISTORY STRANGE BUT TRUE


33 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 5, 2011all want progress, but if youre on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive. A year on the planet Neptune lasts about 165 of our Earth years. For reasons that arent clear, lawmakers in the town of Devon, Conn., once saw fit to outlaw walking backward after sunset. You dont often associate museums with beverages, but it seems that theyre fairly popular throughout the world. For instance, museums dedicated to coffee and/or tea can be found in London, Moscow, Paris, Sao Paolo, Zurich and Kyoto, as well as in China, South Korea, Colombia and Angola. Germany has three of them. Coffee and tea must be quite popular in the Netherlands; museums dedicated to the beverages can be found in five different cities there. Are you an ailurophile? If youre overfond of cats, you are. You probably know that Bill Gates lives in a palatial house near Seattle, but you might not realize quite how big it is. The sprawling home is a whopping 66,000 square feet; the property taxes alone are approximately $1 million per year. Its not unusual to have heated floors, but the Gates estate has heated driveways. Beats shoveling snow, I suppose. Need another reason to buy food thats grown locally? Studies show that 60 percent of what we spend on food is eaten up by transportation costs.

CEO Steps DownSouthwest Florida Community Foundation President and CEO Julia East has announced her resignation. I have enjoyed my seven years at the foundation and am appreciative of the opportunity to lead this treasured Southwest Florida organization at such a critical time, East said. I am proud of the goals we have accomplished, which will position the foundation for growth in the decades to come. Opportunities occur infrequently in the life of an organization to easily transition to new leadership, and I feel this is one of those times for the foundation. In the fall, East plans to return to one of her passions, developing curriculum and teaching college and graduate level classes while she explores other opportunities. On behalf of the entire board, I want to thank Julia for her hard work, professionalism and many accomplishments, said Dawn-Marie Driscoll, chairman of the board of trustees. Julias efforts have ensured that our 35-year-old foundation will continue to be recognized as a superior organization. We wish her success in the continuation of her career and know she will excel. We also appreciate her willingness to assist us during this time of transition and the search for our next CEO. During Easts tenure, the foundation established many new funds and programs including disaster relief funding, Womens Legacy Fund and MicroEnterprise project as well as increased technology to assist grantees. The Southwest Florida Community Foundation has been supporting Lee, Charlotte, Glades, Hendry and Collier counties since 1976. With assets of more than $60 million, the community foundation has provided more than $50 million in grants and scholarships to the communities it serves. For more information, call 274-5900.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 5, 201136 Red Sox Red Hot And Fans Love Itby Ed FrankAlthough two months remain in the 2011 baseball season, the Red Sox Nation is giddy, and deservedly so. The red-hot Red Sox finished the month of July with a 20-6 mark, the best July in the team history. And their series win last weekend over the Chicago White Sox marked a franchiserecord seventh consecutive winning series on the road. Boston began the week with the best record in the American League and the second best in all of baseball at 66-40 for a .623 percentage. All of this after a 2-10 season start. Despite this sizzling stretch of winning baseball, the Red Sox had just a two-game lead in the AL Central Division over their arch-rival New York Yankees. There are many reasons why the talent-laden Red Sox are in first place, chief among them is the off-season acquisition of first-baseman Adrian Gonzales who is leading the Major Leagues in hitting at .357 and RBIs at 90. His two hits Sunday against the White Sox was his seventh consecutive multi-hit game. At this juncture of the season, Gonzales is the odds-on favorite to win the American League MVP. Three of the top 10 hitters in the AL are wearing Red Sox uniforms. In addition to Gonzales there is Jacoby Elsbury at .321 and Dustin Pedroia at .309. Pedrioa recently had a 25-game hitting streak. The lofty perch of the Red Sox did not keep their shrewd general manager, Theo Epstein, from making a lastminute move before the July 31 trading deadline. To strengthen the pitching staff, Epstein traded four Minor Leaguers in two different deals to obtain the veteran left-handed pitcher Erik Bedard from the Seattle Mariners. Epstein had been shopping for a starting pitcher due to the season-ending injuries to Clay Buchholz and Daisuke Matsuzaka. Its unlikely that the Red Sox can continue the torrid .769 winning mark they set in July. That magical number would put them at 109 wins for the season. Thats not going to happen. But right now, the Red Sox Nation is aglow with their team that is playing phenomenal baseball. Miracle in Deep Second-Half Season Slump The Fort Myers Miracle baseball team departed on a six-game road trip Tuesday having lost 10 of their last 11 games including a 1-7 record on the recently-concluded home stand. The Miracle second-half record stood at 15-23 and a last place standing in the Florida State League South Division. The road trip that started Tuesday includes three games at Bradenton and three against Palm Beach before returning home Monday to Hammond Stadium for six games against the same two teams. PGA TipsA Balanced Swing by Matt Oakley, PGA Golf ProfessionalWhen I teach golf lessons every day, the thing I see in amateur golf swings the most are balance issues. They swing as hard as they can to the point where they almost fall down and wonder why the ball doesnt go where they want it to go. I want to look like the players on TV is what they tell me. In order to do that we will need to achieve balance in the golf swing. Balance is the athletes ability to have a steady base to get their body to propel an object. Here are a few principles: 1. The legs provide a platform for the rotation of the body and the swinging of the arms. The legs are the key to balance in golf. In any athletic move we use the legs as our base. To hit a golf ball the balance must be shifted to the back leg in the backswing and to the forward leg to initiate the downswing and followthrough. Think about the pitcher in baseball. He balances on the back leg in the windup and steps towards the batter, plants the front leg onto the ground and then throws the ball. Back-to-front motion with the legs initiating the action. 2. A little lateral motion is not only allowed, it is mandatory. To propel any object we must move our body. Think of a person trying to throw a shot put (that really heavy metal ball). If you stood dead still and tried to throw it your arm would fall off. You must move backwards with your weight and then forwards to heave it. In golf we must have a slight amount of backwards head and body motion in the backswing and then a little forward head and body motion during the strike and follow-through. If you dont believe it, watch Rory McIlroy when he is done with his swing. Is his head pointed down at the golf ball like it was at address? No, it has moved to create motion and balance. 3. If balance isnt important try hitting golf balls with your feet together. You will only get about 75 percent distance with your feet together. To get to 100 percent you must move your legs and have a balanced finish. Try this tip: whatever direction the club is being swung is what direction your body must be moving towards. Back in the backswing and then forward in the forward swing. Great Service...Great Dedication...Great Results!!! Great Service...Great Dedication...Great Results!!!

Sanibel-Captiva Little League Summer Clinicsubmitted by Chuck PhoenixThe Sanibel-Captiva Little League is holding its second summer clinic Friday, August 5 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at The Sanibel School, diamond 1 (nearest the road). All family members are invited to participate and play. The event starts at 6 p.m. with a skills clinic for all ages and abilities. Beginning at 7, there will be a family ballgame and cookout. There was a lot of interest in the July 8 clinic, but it was rained out. The June 11 clinic with MLB players Julio Zuleta and Michael Tucker was well-attended on a hot morning. This Fridays clinic is both instructive and recreational and follows several family ballgames held earlier in the year. In the family ballgame, children will hit baseballs or softballs, women will hit tennis balls and men will hit wiffle balls, keeping the play comparable and competitive for all ages and abilities to participate together on a single game. Everyone is invited to bring hot dogs, burgers and other favorite picnic food. Sanibel-Captiva Little League board member Tiny Tim Tip Toe Through the Tulips Drobnyk said, The quickest way to plug a hole in your swing is with a barbequed hot dog. See you there. The clinic is open to the public and free of charge. Registration is not required, but coordinators would appreciate a head count in advance by calling Lana Izworski at 461-0101 or emailing her at Reception@CorporationCounsel. com.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 5, 201138 Insurance Tip Before A Hurricane by Marge MeekHere are some ideas from insurance companies that can help reduce your vulnerability to high winds: Maintain a relationship with your roofer and contractor. Remember they are in high demand and you want to get fast response. Replace existing standard windows with impact-resistant window systems that are designed to withstand direct impact by wind-borne objects. If the price is higher than your budget, look at shutters, certain types of film or other products. There are many, many new products coming on the market and one will fit your needs. Have storm shutters and anchor bolts professionally inspected to ensure they perform as designed. Check the caulking around your windows to help prevent wind-driven rain from entering your home. Keep trees and shrubbery trimmed. Remember the last hurricane and all the landscaping debris that was expensive to haul away and back-breaking work for all. When making repairs to your roof, verify that its structure and decking are appropriately attached to your house. Besides safety, improved roof to wall connections give you wind insurance credits. New shingles are only part of the protection you need. Install a back-up generator to power the air conditioning in your entire home as well as critical electrical appliances and electronics. Air conditioning can expedite the drying process and help prevent additional damage. Contact LCEC about installing protection at your electric box that will help reduce the effect of power surges. Put individual surge protectors on all your electronics to save them when power is restored but has intermittent surges. Make sure drains on terraces and balconies are not clogged and allow water to flow freely. Write down this website. www. In case of a storm after June 1, Citizens posts when the company is shut down due to a pending named storm or hurricane as well as other valuable weather information. Discuss your insurance coverage with your agent. Know what your deductibles are, what your policy covers and what you should do in case of a hurricane to report a claim.

Myers Beach OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK Dressing Your Windows by Marcia FeeneyDressing your windows is a topic which stymies many homeowners. Now, before you conjure up visions of the scene in Gone With the Wind, in which Scarlett OHara tears the velvet draperies down from her parlor windows and makes beautiful clothes from them (that would be dressing from your windows), let me explain. Dressing the windows in your home simply means providing some form of window treatment to your rooms. Although that sounds simple by definition, figuring out the best design options for each of your windows is a bit more complicated, and depends widely on what you want them to do for you. Privacy, light control and aesthetic beauty are the three major functions of window treatments. In addition, what you put on your windows may or may not provide thermal protection from heat, a primary concern in Scarlett OHaras day. There are several key questions to ask yourself in order to decide what is best for you. First, consider the degree of privacy needed in each of your rooms. Bedrooms and bathrooms are the most obvious parts of our homes where privacy from outside viewing is required. Most people want the availability of a privacy treatment in the more public areas of their homes as well, especially during nighttime hours. Even those who live in secluded areas, where the issue of other people looking in is negligible, need to consider whether they want privacy treatments to block the cold-feeling black hole syndrome that occurs from looking out into dark nothingness at night. Secondly, think about your light control needs. Most of us love lots of natural light in our homes, and the prevalence of huge beautiful windows in todays architecture reflects that. However, there are times when that wonderful sunlight needs to be controlled. Over time, the sun causes fading of your furniture and floor coverings, and can dramatically increase your cooling bills in summer. It also interferes with computer work and television viewing by creating eye-straining glare on the screen. And, as great as sunrises and sunsets are to watch, we dont want them shining directly in our eyes when we eat breakfast or watch the evening news. Thirdly, ask yourself what aesthetic role you need for your window treatments to play in your rooms. Window treatments are an important element in providing a balance of color, pattern and texture to your overall decorating scheme. They can also serve to create optical illusions of your windows being larger, your ceilings being higher, or your room being more proportionally pleasing than it actually is. Style wise, do you want something very clean-lined and tailored, or something with lots of softness and fullness? Should what you put on your windows showcase beautiful woodwork, or camouflage less than beautiful windows? Should they frame a gorgeous view or block an unpleasant one? Sometimes, clients tell me that they are reluctant to put anything on their windows. They are often thinking that window treatment means heavy occlucontinued on page 39 Pool Service & Supply Pool Service & Supply Chlorine Tabs Tools Pumps Chlorine Tabs Tools Pumps Free computerized water analysis Free computerized water FL Lic. #CPC1457804 FL Lic. #CPC1457804STORE HOURS: M-F 9-4 SAT 10-1 SERVICE: MON-SAT 8-5 Stop by our store in Anchor Point 1633 Periwinkle Way

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 5, 201142 School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My twins are going to high school in the fall and I know this could be a difficult transition. What can I do to help them? Alicia J., Cape Coral Alicia, Transitioning to a new school can be an exciting but stressful time even when the change is positively anticipated, such as graduating to the next school level. Facing the unknown can cause anxiety. The high school environment tends to be larger, potentially less nurturing, more departmentalized, more competitive, and more demanding academically. Additionally, students are expected to be more independent academically and their social lives will become more complex and intense. Understandably parents can feel concerned about how their child will adjust to these changes. Luckily, there are many ways for parents to help smooth the transition and support their childs academic and social success in their new school: It is important to understand the typical concerns related to moving to a high school setting: Environment: Finding lockers, finding lunchrooms and bathrooms, getting through crowded hallways, getting to class on time Workload: Keeping up with materials, new grading standards and procedures, more long-term assignments, lack of preparation Social: More peer pressures (i.e., cliques, dealing with older students and students from other schools), social immaturity Schedule: Remembering which class to go to next, more teachers, no recess, no free time Other: Reduced parent involvement, accepting more responsibility for their own actions, unrealistic parental expectations, coping with adolescent physical development Parents can help their child prepare for and become comfortable with their new school environment. Emphasize positive aspects of middle/high school: With the move will come more opportunities for individuality, freedom and increasing choice in elective courses and extracurricular activities. There will be more opportunities to find friends with common interests. Teach study skills: Help students begin to self-regulate by breaking down large tasks into manageable pieces and provide guidelines so students can monitor their own progress. Schedule tours of new school: If the student did not have a tour of the new building, schedule one over the summer prior to the start of school. If your school offers an orientation session, make a point to attend. Encourage participation: Whether in extracurricular activities, extra-help homework programs, or school social/sports activities, students should be encouraged to seek these out as an opportunity to meet new people. Continue or increase parental involvement: If you have concerns, dont wait for the school to contact you. Look out for regular newsletters and other forms of communication home regarding events at the school. If your child has special needs, difficulty with normal transitions, or is just learning English, you may want to meet with your childs current and new teachers to identify and develop skill building strategies that meet your childs specific needs. Preventive transition planning can go a long way to minimizing or eliminating adjustment problems when the school year begins.

43 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 5, 2011General Patton was once famously quoted: When everyone is thinking the same thing, then somebodys not thinking! How many times have you been in a meeting or in a conversation where no one seems to disagree? It seems as if everyone is afraid to say what they really think. The action plan out of those types of meetings is usually something less than satisfactory, isnt it? Using my field as an example, Ill sit down with a couple to discuss their estate plan. Rather than get right to the point and ask how they want their will or trust to read, I like to ask them questions about themselves and their family. If the client is retired Ill usually ask what they did when they were working. How many children do you have? Tell me about your children and so on. To do otherwise simply ask how to divide their possessions invites problems. Just divide everything equally amongst our children after both of us are gone is a common direction that could lead to big problems. Once I was having a very interesting conversation with new clients, spending more than 45 minutes on their history, on their children and even their grandchildren. The husband suddenly stopped and asked me why I was spending so much time trying to learn about the family members personalities. If I dont know this information, how might I help you fashion an estate plan thats going to work for you? I answered. Let me give you an example. Suppose Jason has built up a family business over the course of many years. The equity and value in the family business makes up a large chunk of Jasons net worth. Lets further assume that Jason has three children, only one of whom works in the family business. Lets also say that during our conversations, Jason tells me that there is some acrimony between the son who works in the family business and another son who does not. If Jasons will simply divides up his net worth amongst his three children, what problems might occur? For one thing, the son who inherits his 1/3 share of Jasons business but is the one responsible for working the business might resent the fact that his work benefits his two siblings who do nothing but sit back and wait for dividend checks. On the other hand, the siblings who dont work might complain that the son who is working the business isnt running it correctly, or is spending too much on his own salary which decreases the amount of dividend checks that they receive. Eventually the hard feelings will multiply and may even fracture family relationships. There are alternatives for the client who has net worth tied up in a difficult to divide, illiquid asset. You could have the personal representative sell the asset to a third party, you could write your documents to give a child who is working in the business the option to purchase the equity interest from his siblings at a price and on terms that wont bankrupt the business, you could purchase life insurance and name disproportionate beneficiaries to work out the difference and so on. But in working on an estate plan you would only arrive at these solutions if you can first get everyone thinking something different than what is rote. You have to think outside the box as they say. You might say that planning this way might lead to difficult conversations and disagreements. And it might. But as General Patton figured out, its okay to have disagreements during the planning stage. What every family doesnt want is to have disagreements once its too late. Craig R. Hersch.

If you have a July birthday, your gem is the ruby; those born in August are gifted with the peridot. Top-quality rubies rank among the worlds rare and costly gems. Its glowing red color has been attributed to holding vast magical powers including an unquenchable fire, the prevention of evil thoughts, the ability to reconcile disputes, and the ability to bring its wearer perfect peace and happiness. When seeking a ruby, you should know that they can display a range of colors from medium to very dark, and the hue can be orange, purple, pink, or brown. Rubies are often slightly included and are cut in traditional shapes. Large rubies are rare, and the highest quality ruby is not usually larger than five carats. Rubies are traditionally found in Myanmar, Madagascar, Kenya, Thailand, and Vietnam. Rubies are very wearable because they have a high hardness, or scratch resistance. To clean rubies, you can safely use liquid cleaner or detergent, but do not scrub them. When in doubt, bring your jewelry to your local jeweler for cleaning and inspection twice each year. Along with being the birthstone for July, rubies are the birthstone for summer and Capricorn as well as being the gem that celebrates 15th and 40th wedding anniversaries. Peridot is a yellow to yellow-green gemstone that has been mined for thousands of years. It is often the result of volcanic action with tiny peridot crystals sometimes appearing in black volcanic sand. There are biblical references to its bright green color, and it is said to have been one of the favorite gemstones of Queen Cleopatra. The stone is thought to bring the wearer good luck, peace, and success. The powers of good health, protection, and peaceful sleep have also been attributed to peridot.

The event was hosted by The American Culinary Federation, Southwest Florida Chefs Association. The chili cook-off benefitted the Harry Chapin Food Bank. Those in attendance brought generous nonperishable food donations for the food bank. The Pink Shell provided a band and the public was invited to taste the chili entries. A select group of judges, including The Sanctuarys Executive Chef Mark Brown, chose three winners based on a blind tasting. Although Chathavong nor Bryner placed in this event, they were happy to be a part of the collecting over 500 pounds of food for the community. This was a fun competition to help a great cause. We had a great time with the other chefs from the local association, enjoyed the beach, and tasted some amazing chili. What else is there? mused Brown.

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, My son and his wife were told that she would be delivering a severely handicapped child. After a family conference we all decided that with modern medicine it could be fixed, but we didnt see the long-term financial and emotional toll involved. The expense is dreadful. We are draining our retirement funds to help the parents and they are having severe marital and financial problems as well. There seems to be no end in spite of all of the surgeries because they only relieve but never correct the problems. We all know we are responsible for our choices, but we didnt understand the long-term problems. What do you suggest we consider? Leona Dear Leona, I have very few suggestions for you. If you have not already done so, have your son and daughter-in-law contact an attorney to discuss financial protections for the family. I am not sure if there are any, but there is no harm in exploring options. Also, if you have not already done so, please contact your local human service agency to explore community resources to support the family. Pryce Dear Leona, Many people believe in abortion if they have been told by their physician that such an abnormality exists to avoid problems like your family is having. Others do not believe in abortion under any circumstances for moral and religious reasons. You made your decision for your own reasons and now must live with your decision. There are institutions that specialize in caring for people like your grandchild. Research the area where you live or contact a health service agency in the county where you live and they will be able to direct you to a facility that may help. No physician or surgeon can make normal a severely handicapped child. They can frequently work wonders to relieve some of their problems. Lizzie Lizzie and Pryces email address is deaRPharmacistSorry To Pop Your Soda Bubbleby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: My teenage daughter downs several diet sodas a day. She insists theyre a healthy, weight-loss alternative to regular sodas. Should I be concerned? EL, Phoenix, Arizona In a word, YES. Several studies published this year suggest diet soda is not the healthiest beverage on the shelf. At the end of each of these individual studies researchers say something like, Hey, this research is not conclusive. This study doesnt mean that everyone should stop drinking diet sodas moderation is good blah, blah, blah. But when you put all these studies together, in my opinion, the fizzy stuff falls flat. Put down your soda pop for a second and take a closer look at some of this research: Back in February 2010, doctors at the International Stroke Conference in Los Angeles reported on research showing that people who drink diet soda every day have a 61 percent increase in the likelihood of having a cardiovascular event. That research hardly made the news. Another study looked at 3,000 nurses and found that drinking just two diets sodas a day was associated with a decrease in kidney function. Let me remind you, kidneys are responsible for filtering your body of poisonous toxins. You really want your kidneys in tip top shape to keep yourself clean which is why I always harp on you to drink fresh, filtered water. Drinking diet soda begs the question, will it help with weight loss? A study reported in an online issue of Diabetes Care in January 2009 found that people who drink at least one diet soda a day experienced a 36 percent increased risk for developing metabolic syndrome, a disorder that includes the triple threat of high blood pressure, high cholesterol and high glucose. Metabolic syndrome almost always includes the condition of obesity. So if you connect the dots, it doesnt appear that weight loss is a benefit of drinking diet soda. The mechanism behind why people experienced a higher risk for metabolic syndrome wasnt teased out, nor can we conclude a definitive cause and effect. I can tell you this though: if any natural herb or vitamin was linked to even an inkling of the stuff diet soda is associated with, it would be yanked off the shelves in hours! If you love soda (diet or regular), make it a special treat, rather than your beverage of choice all day long. Or try one of my natural recipes for soda.

47 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 5, 2011 Dr. DaveBarbeque Season Syndromeby Dr. Dave HepburnWhats on your barbeque menu this summer? Hamburgers, ribs, strands of previously charred and stuck on remains of a chicken breast from last week that kind of tore apart when you took it off the grill because your wife forgot to give you the proper spatula, vegetables, sheeesh kabobs, E. coli etc. False teeth and chipmunks frighten me and a chipmunk with false teeth... well I dont sleep. But barbeques terrify me. They are evil, intimidating and they know it, which is why they deliberately include barb in their name, as per the nasty barb of a harpoon or a Striesand. My trusty hound Leo, on the other hand, loves the BBQ. He foams fountains of saliva as he anticipates the side table tipping over or bits of halibut dropping nearby. Failing that, there is always that tasty grease that spills over the grease cup. Oh yeah! he gloats, Makes for way better eruptions later when Im curled up pretending to be asleep. Man I love it when they blame each other. But for me, there have been too many times I have muttered, Hmmm, not lit yet, smells like the gas is on, but its still not... WHOOOOOOOOOSH and there goes my eyebrows and the hair on (now off) my arms. Smells great Dave, whats cookin? Well, got some chicken breasts, mixed with a little homo sapien epidermis.... So now, when lighting a BBQ, I stand 47 feet away and, if it doesnt light in the first two seconds, I send my wife in, which is not an act of cowardice despite what the neighbours say. She simply has less arm hair and thus, this just makes sense. And of course, barbeques get you both ways. Undercook the meat and you get diarrhea, blood in your urine and death and stuff. Overcook your meat and suddenly you develop tumours and growths sprouting about your body with shapes like potatoes and Striesands rhinoplasty. Barbeque Season Syndrome, aka Hamburger Disease, is a result of not killing the E. coli that is hunkered down in the middle of the patty. Symptoms of E.coli infection start about two days after eating the burger and include all the food poisoning symptoms like vomiting, belly cramps and the attractive watery diarrhea, which in serious cases may become bloody. Goes on for a week. But the bad news is, that on occasion, this can turn deadly. One strain of E. coli can produce a toxin that destroys red blood cells and platelets, cause kidney failure and will claim the life of five percent of those who develop this syndrome. Known as HUS (hemolytic uremic syndrome), it can lead to some permanent damage in the lives of those affected. So should you get ill a couple of days after eating a hamburger, be aware that should you start to see little purple bruises on your skin or blood in your urine, even after the stomach flu symptoms are over, you MUST see a doctor. But as an ounce of prevention blah blah, I want to remind you to: Refrigerate, freeze or even Winnipeg your meat as soon as possible after buying it. Thaw meat in the refrigerator, not at room temperature. Always thaw meat thoroughly before you start to cook it. Do not try cooking frozen or partially frozen meat. If you do not cook hamburger patties right away, keep them in the refrigerator until you are ready to cook them. Do not let raw meat sit at room temperature, regardless of what the dog says. Always wash and sanitize all utensils, cutting boards, counters, children etc that have touched raw meat to prevent E. coli from contaminating other foods. Never put cooked meat back on the same unwashed platter that held the raw meat. The juices from the raw meat can be contaminated with E. coli, which can then contaminate the cooked meat which means you have to BBQ it again which means you will overcook it now which means you may well grow Striesands off your ear. Cook hamburger patties until the center is brown, not pink, and the juices run clear. The middle of the patty must reach a temperature of 71 degrees C or hotter and held there for at least 15 seconds. Pink burgers are best.... served to critical neighbours. Like the column?

He has so much junk that there is no place to put it anymore. Our home is full of stuff. I cannot stand it and we need to get rid of so much. How can I get him to clear the clutter?A: We know that clearing up physical clutter and getting rid of stuff clears the mind. Have a talk with your husband and let him know that he will feel so much clearer if he can learn to let go of a lot of this stuff. Clearing out the old will help open him up to new possibilities such as a whole new look in the home, yard or car. Suggest that you have a yard sale as that is always a good way to remove things from the home. My motto is that if it has not been used in the last six months, or when in doubt, throw it out. Also, clinging to old stuff is clinging to ways of being. The stuff can have a hold on us and it feels so much better to feel free and having let it go. Once the physical clutter is clear, I am certain he will feel less burdened and his mind will be clearer.

Peridots are found in Myanmar, Pakistan, Norway, China, Hawaii, North Carolina, and Arizona. The most important source of peridot in the world is the San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation near Globe, Arizona, where Native Americans primarily mine the stone. Interestingly, it has also been found in some meteorites, making it one of the few gems known to exist outside our solar system. Peridot is available in small sizes because larger stones are becoming scarce. It is not a hard stone and can scratch easily. Carefully protect your peridot from scratches, sharp blows, household chemicals, and extreme temperature changes. Do not use a home ultrasonic machine for cleaning. Along with being the gemstone for August birthdays, peridot is the birthstone for Libra as well as being the gem for 16th wedding anniversary gifts.
