Joining Meardon again is photo educator James Corwin Johnson of Bradenton, who for many years was director of photography resources at Yosemite National Park. This week-long workshop is on the shores of pristine Rangeley Lake. Participants stay in historic lakefront log cabins near the western Maine resort village. Settled over 150 years ago, the town of Rangeley is steeped in history and offers panoramic lake and mountain views, moose, deer, and loon sightings, as well as waterfalls, winding country roads, and plenty of old New England charm. Daily photo excursions include: Smalls Falls, Height of the Land, the Rangeley Overlook, Eustis Ridge, and Grafton Notch. All this is set in a landscape bursting with reds, yellows, and oranges as maples, birch, and poplars create a splendid scene amid the lakes and evergreens. Workshop participants will receive hands-on advice in the field on camera techniques, composition, and lighting. Back at the cabins, daily group and individualized tutorials are shared fireside, aimed at optimizing images through Photoshop and other programs. Workshop attendees have come from as far away as India. One participant, Bailey Williams from Mississippi, said, The trip to Rangeley was very informative, a lot of fun, and great shooting. I think all of us came back home much better photographers. For information about the workshop, contact Meardon at 472-2346, or visit Johnson can be reached at 813-263-2702 or visit www.

5 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 12, 2011 Shell Museum Seeks VolunteersAre you looking for a rewarding way to donate a few hours of your time? Do you have a love for people and shells? If so, then the Bailey-Matthews 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). Anyone interested in receiving additional volunteer information should contact Diane Thomas at dothomas@ 395-2233.

The issue was that to rebuild the seawall, contractors would have to remove the five-foot wide boardwalk but the code doesnt allow for a nonconforming structure in the bay beach zone to be replaced or substantially improved. The treasured boardwalk is a relic of Sanibels pre-incorporation days and does not meet current codes. So when seawall repairs became necessary, owners faced the prospect of losing the decking thats used for baywatching, fishing and hanging out. After nearly three hours of debate Tuesday, the Sanibel Planning Commission voted unanimously to direct planning staff to prepare the necessary documents for approval, subject to conditions outlined in the staff report and any documentation requested. Commissioners stressed that the decision was site specific and not a precedent for other communities. The planning commission on Tuesday was willing to grant a conditional use permit for 900 feet of seawall but there were questions as to whether the boardwalks replacement cost constituted more than 50 percent of its value the criterion for determining substantial improvement. Commissioner Chuck Ketteman wondered whether the contractor could get around the problem by putting the planks aside while the seawall was being built and then replacing them afterwards. Brett Stokes, of Stokes Marine, contractor for the project, said it could be done but he was reluctant, asking what was the logic between doing that and replacing it with new timber. Stokes noted that the residents of Mariner Pointe are so attached to their boardwalk they would rather allow the seawall and boardwalk to fall into the water before they will do any repairs that would cause the loss of the boardwalk. It had been noted that if the boardwalk was destroyed in a storm or other disaster, under the citys rules, it could be rebuilt.Commissioner Chris Heidrick said, I am struggling to see what is the public benefit of forcing the applicant to take that extra step or what is the public detriment in forcing the applicant to do (the seawall) repairs in separate steps. He felt there would be safety issues among others.Commissioner Tom Krekel agreed, saying, We should not use the damage to the boardwalk (during seawall repairs) as a reason to deny them to replace the boardwalk because it is no fault of their own. City May Act On Abandoned Propertiesby Anne MitchellDoes Sanibel need an ordinance to deal with abandoned homes that become nuisances and eyesores? John Wysocki, who lives in Seagull Estate, believes some action is long overdue. He cited a home near the entrance of his subdivision that has been in deteriorating condition for at least five years. It is really an eyesore, he told the planning commission on Tuesday, and described its condition as devastation. He said, This comes up in our neighborhood association discussion monthly, he said, even though it is not part of Seagull Estates. This is a serious blight and it affects the values of properties throughout Seagull Estates. Planning Director Jim Jordan showed a PowerPoint presentation of various island homes with broken windows, siding hanging off, missing roof shingles and unkempt yards. Some had been gutted and permits pulled then abandoned. Others were still in disrepair following Hurricane Charley and one hadnt been lived in for eight years, Jordan said. The housing market slump has not spared Sanibel, though abandoned homes and buildings are not as prevalent as in some other Florida municipalities. There are about 20 such properties. I dont want to give the impression it is a big problem but it is a noticeable problem, said Jordan. If it is in your neighborhood, it is a big problem, commented Commissioner Chuck Ketteman. So far, he said, the city has handled some of the problems but there are safety concerns and worry that children will enter such homes. We have gotten full compliance so far, Jordan said, but we recognize that the codes really dont deal with the broad issue. He said, We dont want it to be totally punitive, but to have some flexibility. This is an open dialog for now. He wants more input from the legal department and from others, including bankers, people trying to sell their homes and neighbors of homes in foreclosure. In its draft form, the proposed ordinance would require owners to register their nuisance, abandoned, vacant, defaulted and foreclosed properties and provide a local contact. It would establish inspection criteria, fees and an abatement plan, among others. City Attorney Ken Cuyler said the idea will have to go before the city council for consideration and may not result in legislation. More City on page 14


7 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 12, 2011 Sanibel Recreation Department Volunteer Of The Month The City of Sanibel Recreation Department recognized Pat Kair Crysler as Volunteer of the Month. Crysler has been active in the community since moving to Sanibel in 1974. She has been a volunteer at the Sanibel Recreation Department for nine years. Crysler currently volunteers as an office assistant, although in her early volunteering career she was involved in live shell committees, sea life preservation organizations and water studies.

She enjoys working with both children and the elderly. When asked about her volunteering experiences she said, I served on other boards for the city over the years beginning in 1976. I truly enjoy my volunteer experiences and the people I work with. Volunteer opportunities are now available.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 12, 201112 Sanibel-Captiva KiwanisKiwanis Kornersubmitted by Eric PfeiferThis month, the guest speakers at the Sanibel-Captiva Kiwanis Club all have something to do with fishing and/or water quality. Last week, Dave Godfrey from the Bait Box shared some incredible stories about both topics. Godfrey showed up to the Bait Box in the early 1990s looking for employment after leaving the military. In true Ralph Woodring style, Godfrey was hired and put to work within hours that day. He says he has never looked back since he is able to get paid for doing something he loves fishing. Esperanza Woodring was responsible for teaching him how to throw a cast net. Godfrey has been a fishing guide for many years, but most recently his duties include running the Bait Box shrimp boat at night to catch bait for the following day. His job starts around sunset, and if all goes well, he is back at the dock by midnight. Of course, in addition to shrimp, Godfrey comes across many other types of fish in the nets. Recently he has seen more flounder, sugar trout, sea scallops and other species which had not been prevalent until this year. He claims the good water quality, and lack of red tide, have helped the fish spawns and the fishing has been great. Speaking of water quality, Godfrey is also an active member of START (Solutions To Avoid Red Tide). This grass roots organization, which includes several Kiwanians, does research focused on the control and mitigation of harmful algae blooms (HABs) such as red tide to help maintain coastal water quality. Kiwanis is proud to be a sponsor once again of the upcoming START fundraiser called Cracker Fest which will take place on November 4 at the Bait Box. If you like to square dance or two step, eat a roasted pig or smoked mullet, and hear some great music outdoors in the fall, plan on attending. In addition to START, Kiwanis is fortunately able to support more than 20 other local organizations during this tough economic year. If your organization could use a helping hand this year, speak to a Kiwanian about how we may assist. We are always happy to help. You may also learn more about Kiwanis by attending our Tuesday morning breakfast meetings at The Dunes. Following In Tracys Fit-StepsSanibel resident Darren DJ Jenkins finished his first official race at the Saturday, August 6 2011 Race for Trace, in honor of Tracey Kleinpell who died in a bicycle accident on the Sanibel Causeway in early May. DJ wore his light up shoes so Tracy could see him run from Heaven. DJ will follow in Tracys Fit-Steps the races slogan and he now wants to run every race possible.

Matt MitchellRedfish and snook made up the majority of the action out on the water for me last week. Fishing continues to be very consistent with the best typical summertime action coming early and late in the day. A few mornings last week I did have to dodge a few coastal showers but with daily temperatures in the mid 90s the cooling rain was a nice break from the blazing mid-morning sun. During the periods of high tides redfish have been easy to locate and catch. Working keys in the southern sound with cut pinfish and cut ladyfish, 10 to15 redfish mornings were the norm. Some spots would give up as many as five before we had to move further down the shoreline to get back on the action. These fish have been way up under the trees and this is when a well-placed cast can make all the difference in the world. The average size of these reds was from 17 to 25 inches. As soon as the tide dropped out a little, the redfish bite was over and it was time to move on to something else. Areas around Maciever Keys and Mason Island were both productive. The best snook bite could still be found in and around the passes. Either tide worked to get in on the catch-and-release snook action as long as the water was moving. The faster the current the better the bite seemed to be. Lower stages of the tide definitely bunched the fish up tighter though. The basic pass rig remains the same with a live pinfish and a small sinker or split shot placed about a foot to 18 inches up the leader from the hook. Drift through the fast moving water letting the bait bounce along the bottom. These fish hang tight to the bottom in the fast moving current. This simple technique drew bite after bite. Adjust the amount of weight so you can feel the bottom during the drift. The snook caught were of all sizes with several real monsters lost after screaming runs. A 37-inch, 17-pounder was the biggest snook caught and released off my boat last week. The passes can be very crowded with boats some days and there is nothing worse than one naive captain anchoring in the middle of the drift and messing up the drift fishing for everyone else. Not only can anchoring in the wrong spot not gain you any friends, it can also be dangerous with the fast moving current in the passes. If you are going to go fish the passes for the first time or are not familiar with how to do it, stay back and watch how the other boats do it for a while. Once you see how everyone else is drifting it, get in on the action. Keeping one person at the helm to operate the boat while drifting is a must. A little common sense can go along way when fishing in these often close quarters. Another option for getting in on the pass action without having to deal with the boat traffic is to go at night, when its much quieter. In fact, most of the time you will have the pass all to yourself, especially if you go mid-week. With little to no other angling pressure on the fish, if you pick a good tide the bite can really be epic. Its also a great way to stay out of the heat of the summer sun and get in on some great action.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.

Plant SmartSilver Buttonwoodby Gerri ReavesSilver buttonwood (Conocarpus erectus var. sericeus ) is a native tree or shrub whose soft silvery leaves, gnarled bark, and button-like fruit give it great ornamental value. Left to itself, it will develop as a multi-trunk shrub but is often pruned to tree shape. As a tree, it typically reaches about 35 feet tall with a wide spread. Indigenous to tropical coasts and highly droughtand salt-tolerant, it will grow in sandy soil, so its a good choice for coastal landscapes. It will even grow in boggy areas or as a container or bonsai plant. It is exceptionally hardy, but it will not tolerate frost or shade. Widely used as a hedge in South Florida, it unfortunately often suffers from repeatedly flat shearing off. It will live longer and be more beautiful if allowed to assume a natural form. Dense silky hairs give the leaves their soft texture and silvery gray color. The oblong or lance-like leaves are two to four inches long with pointed tips. Inconspicuous greenish flowers appear throughout the year, followed by reddish brown fruit, cone-shaped one-half-inch buttons. The deeply furrowed gnarled bark on older specimens gives the tree character and also provides a good growing platform for epiphytes such as bromeliads and orchids. Propagate it with cuttings or with seeds. Sources:,, and Native Florida Plants by Robert G. Haehle and Joan Brookwell. Plant Smart explores sustainable gardening practices that will help you create a low-maintenance, drought-tolerant, hurricaneand pest-resistant South Florida landscape.

Diane Thomas, the museums public programs specialist, discovered Charlie while he was working at a horse conch display during the 2010 Shell Fair on Sanibel. I saw what a good communicator he was and how engaged he was and enthusiastic, she said. I figured that he would be just the person we could use for our live tank program. As student at The Sanibel School, Charlie is required to perform volunteer work for his community service requirement, so as a shell lover, he chose the shell museum to fulfill those hours. After several training sessions and tutorials, Charlie was ready to pitch in with any task that came his way. Several days a week this summer he assisted youth campers with projects, led live tank presentations for museum guests and worked with young visitors on their shell sketches. Charlie is a delightful young man, Thomas said. He is very responsive and willing to help, no matter what you ask of him. Its a pleasure to work with him. Fortunately, Charlie isnt shy when it comes to his job. I wouldnt mind to stand in front of a million people and tell them about shells, he said. He speaks and understands some German, so he is able to communicate with those visitors who appreciate the translation. Considering that he plans to be a world traveler, Charlie enjoys his encounters with guests from different countries. Its cool, he said. I find it really interesting. When hes not busy with school, he enjoys shelling, fishing, making shell crafts and jewelry, and learning to fly an airplane. He also is interested in running an Internet-based business in which he buys and sells, among other things, baseball cards and remote control cars, planes and boats. For now, the future pilot plans to keep helping others at the shell museum. Its just meeting different people and having fun while youre teaching them, he said about his docent duties. Thomas would love to have more junior docents like Charlie walk through the door to volunteer. I think its important to have a strong junior docent group staff, she said. The hope is to have some kids that will really get involved with it and show up and be there and be the teacher for their peers and the other adult visitors, and also learn a lot about mollusks. To become a junior docent (ages 11 to 13), contact Thomas at 395-2233, or at Junior Docent Charlie Reinhardt shows two young visitors a live tank inhabitant


19 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 12, 2011Animals Are The Stars At This Showsubmitted by Claudia BurnsThe CROW Picture Show offers an insiders look at why critters come to CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife), and features photos of the wild animals who wind up there. Last year, CROW cared for 4,111 sick, injured, and orphaned animals. Of the more than 200 different species, 54 percent were birds, 38 percent were mammals, and eight percent were reptiles/amphibians/ invertebrates. Due to restrictions imposed by governmental agencies, CROW cannot allow visitors to view patients in person. But in this 30-minute presentation visitors can see photos of current and past patients, with commentary by CROW fellow Hilaire Sampson, a senior at Wichita State University who is majoring in biology. Hilaire will be working/learning at CROW until the end of this year and plans to become a veterinarian. The CROW Picture Show is presented each Friday at 11 a.m. in the CROW Healing Winds Visitor Education Center at 3883 Sanibel-Captiva Road, across from The Sanibel School. Admission for adults is $5, teens $3, and free for members and children 12 and under. Admission includes the presentation, plus the opportunity to explore CROWs hands-on educational facility and become familiar with its efforts to save wildlife through compassion, care and education.

Fish, like humans, use body language. They communicate by a flip of the fin, arch of the back, changing colors, etc. Only about four percent of our oceans remain free from human impact.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 12, 201120 CROW Case Of The Week: Chimney Swiftsby Emilie AlfinoThis year CROW found itself with 18 tiny, noisy chimney swifts to raise. Arriving from different sources, the birds needed to be at CROW because they were babies and wouldnt survive without the clinics care. The brood arrived toward the end of June. I cant remember in years past getting more than three or four all year, said Dr. Amber McNamara. In the past we have tried very hard to send a staff member to put them back in the chimney. Put birds back in a chimney? That might sound crazy, but thats exactly where the birds should be at this early stage of their lives. Nowadays, chimney swifts mainly nest in man-made structures such as large open chimneys. The nest is made of twigs glued together with saliva and stuck to the chimney wall. The nest looks like a tiny half-basket you might buy to hang on the wall, maybe for a flower arrangement. These birds then lay three to seven white eggs. The incubation period is about 20 days, and the fledglings leave the nest after a month. After that, the birds have nothing whatsoever to do with chimneys. Homeowners usually find chimney swifts in their fireplaces, and in the case of this years little patients, Dr. Amber wondered if the weather could have had something to do with the larger number of birds ending up at CROW. When I first came here, I was amazed how many people had chimneys, first of all. These are noisy birds, just amazingly loud. If homeowners dont hear them beforehand, they find them when they fall into the fireplace and thats the first time they know they have chimney swifts, Dr. Amber said. Most of the swifts we have gotten this year were just found in the fireplace. They had just fallen from the nest and the owner wasnt able to get them back up there, Dr. Amber explained. Some were single birds, some pairs, and some larger groups of four or five. Caring for chimney swifts isnt easy, either. According to Dr. Amber, all baby bird care is labor intensive, but the swifts are even more so. These birds can be really tricky because the way they feed is different from the other songbirds. It takes a little more patience to feed them, Dr. Amber explained. Also, they dont sit in a nest they cling to something vertical. They are very challenging not only to feed but to keep clean, and then to fledge them can be hard, Dr. Amber added. Normally they fly right out of the chimney into the flock, and we dont have an artificial chimney here. The rehabilitation of chimney swifts is so complicated, in fact, that there is an entire book devoted to it on the doctors shelf. So you can see theres a lot happening here if theres a need for an entire book on it, Dr. Amber said. Being able to dedicate to them the care they need and also take care of our other patients is very demanding, but we did it and are still doing it. The birds start out in a little plastic aquarium with a washcloth draped over the side so they have something to cling to. Theyre fed soaked kitten chow every hour to 1 hours. After they get a little bigger, theyre moved to a Reptarium, which is a rectangular, netted plastic frame cage that zips all the way around. Its made for reptiles but is perfect for the swifts because they can get their tiny toenails into the netting and just hang on. We put them in this when they get to the point of wanting to flap their wings, Dr. Amber explained. We have a heat lamp on it so if they want a warm spot they can go to that end; if they want to be cooler, they can go to the other end. Chimney swifts construct their small but sturdy nests designed to nestle against an inside chimney wall Feeding the swifts is a challenge, but one Dr. Amber has mastered. The eyedropper contains mashed, almost liquified kitten chow that must be fed through an eyedropper as the little patients cling upright to the cages netting.

21 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 12, 2011As the swifts get bigger and are ready to start doing some flying, they head outside to one of CROWs aviaries with netting so they can climb. They all tend to get together in one big bunch; it doesnt matter whos related. Unlike the other songbirds, who tend to eat food out of a bowl, these guys eat bugs out of the air so we have to feed them until theyre ready to go and be released; it isnt possible for us to feed them bugs in mid-air, Dr. Amber said. As Dr. Amber fed the demanding little open-mouthed birds their nearly liquid kitten chow through an eyedropper, they clung to the cages netting in a tight, noisy group. It was obvious they were indeed hard to keep clean, as the doctor wiped their beaks, faces and heads continuously to clean them of dried food. She explained that if their feathers are dirty, infection can grow underneath. They kind of tell us when theyre ready to go youll see them start to fly around the cage, Dr. Amber said. Theyre very acrobatic; theyll do these little maneuvers. And once they start doing that, its time for them to go. On Friday, July 15, Dr. Amber released eight of the birds. She took them back to a spot where several of them had been found. It was a really quiet street. As I was pulling up, I saw one chimney swift flying and then heard others in that little area, Dr. Amber recalled. Within a few seconds there were about 30 of them overhead. Theyre very welcoming to the new birds the more the merrier seems to be their motto. It was one of the coolest releases Ive ever done. Eight of the swifts are still at CROW, growing stronger and preparing for release.

The 17-year-old piano music performance major from Peru studies with head of keyboard studies at the Bower School of Music, Dr. Michael Baron. As part of her award, Navarro will be sent on an all-expense-paid trip to study Chopin for two weeks at the Warsaw Conservatory in Poland. The competition was open to all South American pianists up to the age of 30 and consisted of three rounds. The ceremony was held at the auditorium of the Centro Cultural de Petroperu and was attended by members of the jury chaired by Alexandre Lustchevsky Raphael, professor at Chopin Music University Warsaw, and representatives of the Polish Embassy and the National Conservatory of Music. Earlier this summer, Navarro was awarded a full scholarship to study piano at the Tanglewood Festival in Lenox, Massachusetts. In August, she will be performing as soloist in a Chopin Concerto with the National Orchestra of Peru. Last year, she won the Music Teachers National Association (MTNA) Senior Competition for the State of Florida; the MTNA Piano Duet Competition for the State of Florida; the Regional Senior MTNA Competition (in which the winners of nine states compete against each other), and the Regional Piano Duet MTNA Division Competition. She was also a winner of the Ars Flores National Concerto Competition in Fort Lauderdale. I am very proud of Priscila for winning this latest major competition, said Baron. She has brought significant distinction to the Bower School of Music on an international level while maintaining a 3.88 GPA. Priscila Navarro From page 1Shell Museum Resort ProgramFamily 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 and grown-up conversations. Do you ever have the vision of walking hand and hand down the beach, but linking with only one set of hands? Parents can drop the children off for 2 hours of guilt-free adult time. Your children wont even know youre gone, because they will be reading about mollusks, 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 at $15 per child. Classes will be held at the from 9 to 11:30 a.m. on August 16,18, 23, 25 and 30 and September 1.

Ten years later, the nation continues to endure tremendous suffering after nearly 3,000 people lost their lives in the terrorist attacks on the United States. On this somber anniversary, artist Leoma Lovegroves mission is to memorialize the victims and honor their families with one goal in mind: Never Forget. Follow the Canvas is a video depiction of the story of Lovegroves passion and the community coming together to honor the memory. Lovegrove has created a canvas that depicts the name of every human being who lost their life that fateful day. Follow the Canvas showcases the journey this canvas takes throughout Southwest Florida and how the people of this community remember that tragic day. Every name of every victim is memorialized on the Remember 9-11 Tenth Year Canvas. Lovegroves vision uses the victims names as the basis and the strength of her memorial. The names are the foundation for her artistic vision her hope that despite the evil of 9-11, Americas heritage is strong and freedom will always prevail. The Follow the Canvas video brings the story to life. Follow the Canvas showcases Americans wanting to support the survivors and families whove lost everything. As Lovegroves billboard-sized tribute travels throughout the Southwest Florida community, hear the sometimes tragic, sometimes hopeful and always poignant reasons why people want to take part in the project. Hear parents using paint the canvas events to teach their children about this dreadful day. Hear how people who have lived through the suffering continue to heal. Hear why painting the actual name of a 9-11 victim is a tremendous act of healing. The stories are remarkable. WGCU Studios and producer Rachelle Grossman join forces to document the Remember 9-11 Tenth Year Canvas as it travels throughout Southwest Florida. From mid-June until September 11, residents and visitors are invited to paint the name of one of those who lost their lives on that fateful day. The colors of the names are differentiated by each tragic location. Those who perished at the World Trade Center are remembered in red. Those who died on American Airlines Flight 11 are honored in sea blue. Victims of the Pentagon are honored in orange. People who perished on United Airlines Flight 93 are honored in dark blue. Victims from United Airlines Flight 175 are in painted in deep blue and finally, those who lost their lives on American Airlines Flight 77 are honored in white. After every name is complete, the canvas will then travel to the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre in Fort Myers where a 10-year commemorative event takes place September 11. During this grand finale, the video will document Lovegroves final culmination of her artistic vision. Lovegrove will paint out loud an American Bald Eagle superimposed on top of the honored victims names. The Follow the Canvas video will continue to film the stories behind this memorial and recount the events taking place that unforgettable day. Every art form will be represented live performance, guest speakers, song, symphony, poetry and prose. Audience members will also see a special screening of the Follow the Canvas video journey. Ten-year commemorative events will also be incorporated into the final Follow the Canvas video. The final 26-minute production will be aired on WGCU Public Media, the Southwest Florida PBS affiliate on various dates of remembrance, including Memorial Day, 9-11 and Veterans Day. WGCU will also offer the program for national distribution through American Public Television to PBS stations across the country. Top Ten Books On The Island1. Captiva by Randy Wayne White 2.

But this time, you wont have to. Supporters are ready, falling over themselves to help you make your case. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Venus might be your ruling planet, but Mars is in the picture as well. So dont be surprised if your romantic relationships are a bit rocky at this time. But theyll soon smooth over. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Geminis might rush into romance and risk being wrong about someone rather than be left with no one. But this is one time when its wiser to be wary of where your heart takes you. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) With all (or most) of those pesky problems behind you, take time for your family and friends. Travel aspects are favored, with long-distance journeys high on the list. LEO (July 23 to August 22) You might have started to question the wisdom of being open with someone you hoped you could trust. But be assured you wont be disappointed. Youll soon hear good news. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) You have a reputation for honesty and integrity, and that will help turn around a situation that was not only disappointing but also quite unfair. Good luck. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A happy event creates a closer tie with a family member who seemed hopelessly estranged. Positive aspects also dominate in important career matters. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your ruling planet, Pluto, helps you adjust to change. So, stop putting off that long-delayed move, and make it with the assurance that youre doing the right thing. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) You have a wonderful capacity to learn quickly and well. This will help you when you are faced with an opportunity to move on to a new path in life. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Good news: You suddenly find that youre not facing that new challenge alone. You now have someone at your side, ready to offer whatever support you might need. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Your versatility -which is just one of those aspects of yourself that make you so special -helps you adapt to the challenges of a new and exciting opportunity. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Your sensitive nature picks up on the needs of others. But what about your desires? You need to take more time to assess what your goals are and, if necessary, redirect them. BORN THIS WEEK: You give your trust openly and easily. People find you easy to be with and enjoy your wit, your good sense, and your capacity to love and be loved. On Aug. 18, 1590, John White, the governor of the Roanoke Island colony in present-day North Carolina, returns from a supply trip to England to find no trace of the 100 colonists he left behind. The only clue to their disappearance was the word CROATOAN carved into the palisade around the settlement. On Aug. 17, 1877, William Billy the Kid Bonney kills his first man, an Arizona blacksmith. Just how many men Billy the Kid killed is uncertain. He reportedly once claimed he had killed 21 men, one for every year of my life. On Aug. 15, 1914, the Panama Canal, the American-built waterway across the Isthmus of Panama connecting the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, is inaugurated. U.S. engineers moved nearly 240 million cubic yards of earth and spent close to $400 million in constructing the 40-mile-long canal. On Aug. 21, 1920, Daphne Milne, wife of English writer A.A. Milne, gives birth to a son, Christopher Robin Milne. When Christopher Robin received a stuffed bear as a present, his father began writing a series of stories about the bear. Christopher Robin was immortalized in A.A. Milnes books Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner. On Aug. 16, 1948, baseball legend George Herman Babe Ruth dies from cancer in New York City. For two days, tens of thousands of fans stood in line to pay their last respects. Ruth hit a record 60 home runs in the 1927 season and led the Yankees to seven pennants. On Aug. 19, 1960, in the USSR, captured American U-2 pilot Francis Gary Powers is sentenced to 10 years imprisonment for his confessed espionage. Only 18 months into his sentence, the Soviets released him in exchange for Rudolf Abel, a senior KGB spy who was caught and convicted in the United States five years earlier. On Aug. 20, 1989, Lyle and Erik Menendez shoot their parents, Jose and Kitty, to death in the den of the familys Beverly Hills, Calif., home. Police were finally tipped off to the brothers by the girlfriend of Eriks psychotherapist, whod taped Eriks confession in counseling sessions. It was noted psychiatrist and sleep researcher William C. Dement who made the following sage observation: Dreaming permits each and every one of us to be quietly and safely insane every night of our lives. THIS WEEK IN HISTORY STRANGE BUT TRUE

Despite the fact that the English language is very large in terms of the number of words available to those who can use them, it seems that much of our writing is made up of only a few words.

If youre an avid hiker, you might want to keep in mind that the most dangerous trail in America, according to Backpacker magazine, is located in Canyonlands National Park in Utah.

35 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 12, 2011 PGA TipsFairway Bunker Shotsby Matt Oakley, PGA Golf ProfessionalFairway bunker shots can really be difficult if you do not have the proper set-up. Once you are set up correctly it is actually quite an easy shot, no different than from the fairway. The key is hitting the golf ball first, then the sand. Here are a few tips to get you hitting your fairway bunker shots on to the green and next to the pin in no time: 1. Set-Up. a. As you enter the bunker, take notice of what the sand feels like beneath your feet. Is it soft or firm? In either case we want to dig our feet in only a little bit, just enough to get firm footing, do not dig like you are trying to reach China! If you dig yourself too low into the sand you are more likely to hit the sand first, then the ball and lose dramatic distance on the shot. b. Choke down on the club an equal amount that your feet dug into the sand (dig down an inch, choke down an inch). This allows you to hit the ball first, then the sand. If the club is too long you will hit the sand first because the club wants to bottom out too low. c. Since you are choking down on the club, take one more club than the distance of the shot normally requires (if it is 8-iron distance then hit a 7-iron). d. Place the ball a little further back in your stance than normal, this allows you to strike the ball first, then the sand. 2. The Strike. a. Concentrate on keeping the head and lower body completely still during the swing. This creates solid contact (easier to hit a still target than a moving target). This swing should feel like it is all shoulders, arms and wrists. The less moving parts, the less margin of error. b. Focus your eyes in front of the golf ball. If you look behind the golf ball you will probably strike it there and get sand first. c. Strike the golf ball, then the sand. 3. The Finish. a. After the strike, follow through to a full, balanced finish. Schedule a lesson with your PGA professionals on this important weapon in your arsenal!

Theres More To The Story Of Why Tiger Woods Hired A New Caddieby Ed FrankTheres much more behind the story of Tiger Woods dumping his long-time caddie Steve Williams and replacing him with his childhood friend Bryon Bell. And the story is more important than last weekends media frenzy over remarks made by Williams, who now totes the bag for Adam Scott, the winner of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. The unwritten rule among golf professionals is that caddies remain behind the scene and keep their mouths shut. Williams, however, still smarting from his firing by Woods, said in a TV interview after Scotts victory, Ive been caddying for 33 years, and its the best win of my life. That remark came after caddying for Woods 12 years that included 13 major championships, 16 world titles and 72 wins worldwide. The storyline behind Woods hiring of Bell lies in the fact that Bell was running his golf course development company. And, according to Woods, the slumping economy has resulted in little or no work for the firm. That does not come as a surprise as recent figures from the National Golf Foundation showed that 2010 marked the fifth consecutive year that the closing of golf courses far outpaced the openings of new courses. In fact, in 2010 the ratio was more than two to one; 107 closures compared to just 46 new 18-hole courses. From 2006 to 2010, the total net loss of golf courses in the United States was 220, according to the golf foundation. While Florida continues to lead the nation with 1,218 courses, it has not been exempt from this decline with dozens of courses going bankrupt and others being converted to other purposes. Considering the severity of the economy in recent years, the fact that shuttering of golf courses far outnumbered the opening of new facilities poses a wide degree of interpretation according to who is doing the explaining. The total loss of 220 18-hole golf courses from 2006 to 2010 represents only 1.5 percent of total supply, the golf foundation reports. However, it should be noted that the number of rounds played last year in the United States was 43 million less than the number played in 2000. On the plus side, the states with the most openings last year were Pennsylvania, Florida, Illinois, North Carolina and Texas. More than 60 percent of these were daily fee courses, not private courses. So what is the actual status of the golf industry in the United States suffering or prospering? The answer probably lies somewhere in the middle. Miracle Win First Series in Last Five; Wimmers Shows Progress The Fort Myers Miracle captured their first series win in the last five by winning two of three games from the Palm Beach Cardinals last weekend. The series victory improved the Miracles second-half season record to 17-27. Encouraging was the performance of pitcher Alex Wimmers, the Minnesota Twins 2010 first-round draft pick, who had been sidelined most of this season. In Saturday nights 6-0 win over Palm Beach in Jupiter, Wimmers pitched the final four shut-out innings while striking out six and allowing only two hits. In seven appearances since returning from the disabled list, he has appeared only in relief roles. Fort Myers is home this weekend at Hammond Stadium facing the same Palm Beach Cardinals with a 7:05 p.m. start Friday, 6:05 p.m. Saturday and 1:05 p.m. Sunday.

Hurricane Straps Secure Low & High Voltage Lines Secure Refrigerant Lines Inspect and Advise Condition of Stand Add a Surge Protector for $129.95 ($149.95 Value) Limited Time Offer Hurricane Package $99.95 Last Sunday night I cooked dinner with my youngest daughter, Madison who is in 6th grade. She found a recipe that she was interested in making so we went together to the grocery store to buy all the ingredients. She dutifully diced the chicken, prepared the vegetables and mixed the spices. We seared it all in the wok and served it to her two older sisters who are finicky eaters. They took some tentative tastes then dug in! Chef Madis dinner was a big hit! The cookbook that Madi and I used was written in simple language one that a child could follow. Too bad that certain types of recipes that I commonly use in my law practice cant be written that way. In fact, if you ever read the recipes that I am referring to, you would think they are written in Russian and not in English. What in the world am I talking about? For those of you who have tax planning in your wills and trusts youll find these recipes which are referred to as formula clauses right at the beginning of the part of the document that talks about what happens when you die. These formula clauses are designed to divide your assets into separate baskets usually into a marital trust and a bypass or credit shelter trust so that your estate tax exemption is fully utilized at the time of your death. You can read these clauses over and over and probably not understand them. This is true no matter which estate-planning attorney drafted the document. We dont draft these provisions to confuse our clients, although that might appear to be the goal. The reason these provisions are so difficult to understand is due to the fact that we have to comply with many different provisions of the tax and trust code, as well as various IRS rulings and pronouncements. Words like pecuniary amount and fractional formula relating to numerators and denominators are used to direct the trustee. But heres the funny thing about these formulas theyre not all the same and theyre not forms. Just as some food recipes result in a beef dish while others cook up a vegetarian meal, the formula clauses that are used in your estate planning documents should be tailored to the types of assets that you own, whether or not you are married and how many generations of your family your trust is designed to benefit. Certain types of formulas allow your executor or trustee to pick and choose which assets of yours should be held in the marital trust and which assets should be held in the credit shelter trust. Other types of formulas make the trustee allocate all of the different types of assets more or less proportionately amongst the marital trust and family trust. Each of these different formulas has a distinct set of advantages and disadvantages, with differing income and estate tax results. So how do you pick these formulas? In most cases you wont. Your estateplanning attorney will do it for you. If you have the curiosity and if you really want to impress your attorney ask him why he chose the formula he did. If he cant give you a straight answer on this then he might not understand the differences himself and you might need more of a specialist. But heres something that you should know in any event and thats this: These formula clauses often change over time. The tax laws change, which usu ally necessitate a change in your formula clause. Along the same line, when the types of assets that you own change, then its important for your formula clause to change. If you happen to be a surviving spouse and you are leaving amounts to your children and grandchildren, then thats yet another reason for your formula clause to change. What happens if you have an out of date formula? Its kind of like having stale ingredients for your recipe. The meals not going to turn out so well. Chances are youre going to have to trash it and go to a restaurant, spending a lot of money on a meal that you never intended to buy. So if your will or trust has sat locked up in your safe deposit box for a couple of years its time to review your will and trusts recipe. Believe me when I say that in so doing your family will be glad you did whether they appreciate it or not! Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at Will PowerRecipes Written In Russian?by Craig R.

As the holidays approach and you start making plans for special meals in your dining room with family and friends, do not forget one of the most important elements of a successful dinner atmosphere. Every element in your dining room should contribute to setting the tone and mood of the dinner. Start setting a mood of elegance and sophistication by choosing draperies in soft, rich, sumptuous fabrics. Luxurious fabrics, such as silks, satins, and sheers with iridescent and luminous fibers, enhance the ambiance of any room but are especially effective in creating ambiance in a dining room. Note that these draperies need not be used exclusively for window dcor. The entrance to your dining room can be beautifully accented by adding stationary drapery panels at one or both sides of the walls. These draperies, called portires, are pulled back with tie-backs made of the same fabric, a contrasting fabric, or a cord and tassel. Of course, the architectural style of the room is a key consideration in deciding whether portires are a good choice. Wall coverings, such as wallpaper, tapestries and wall art, can further enhance the mood by adding rich texture and color. The dining table is probably the next most important element. A round dining table, for example, increases the sense of coziness and encourages freeflowing conversation. It also allows lastminute guests to be squeezed in more comfortably. Dining chairs should be comfortable and covered in fabrics (or leather) that are pleasing to the eye and to the touch. Lighting in the room is another key ingredient for a successful dinner recipe. Connect your chandeliers and other light fixtures in the dining room to dimmers. Light should be enough to allow your guests to appreciate the food you are serving while also bathing the room in a warm and soft glow. Candles are a great way to provide soft, indirect lighting while also setting a romantic or intimate mood. Be careful, however, not to use scented candles at the dinner table. You do not want the candles to compete with the aromas of the meal. Choose dishes, glasswear, and silverware that are appropriate not only to the food you are serving but that also help you set the tone you desire, whether it is formal or more casual. White or solid color dinner plates can be combined with soup bowls, salad and dessert dishes with different designs and coordinating colors to create an interesting table. After the dcor is completed, the food has been prepared, and the table is set, sit down and enjoy. Good company, great food, and beautiful surroundings relax and have fun!

Youve gotta love July and August! Usually what happens is that the air conditioning system is doing all it can to keep up. There are several things at play here and what we have to remember is that air conditioning systems are built to perform at a certain design temperature. What that means is that if you were to take all of the days of the year when the air conditioner is used and average them out, you would come up with your design temperature. This is the temperature average that is used to design the system that will go into your house. While its running, the system will cycle on and off at reasonable number times per day and keep you comfortable. During extreme temperatures, as we have seen this July and August, we saw very long run times, higher indoor temperatures than we would like, and to top that, an electric bill to match. The next question that usually pops up is, Well, if the system cant keep up during these extreme temperatures then why dont you install a larger system? It may make sense on the onset, but can lead to disaster in the end. Air conditioning is doing just what it was meant to do conditioning the air inside our home. This means that its cooling and dehumidifying the space. If a system is too large for the space that it services it may be cooled before it has an opportunity to remove enough moisture. This can encourage microorganisms to grow. In the end, its normal for a system to run longer to keep up with the rising temperatures. So, just hold on and youll be wishing for the long, lazy days of summer before long. Well, at least I will. Bryan Hayes is a Sanibel air conditioning contractor.

School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, I am confused and concerned about children getting concussions while playing school sports. This is now in the news often. Can you give me some information that I can use for my kids? Bill G., Sanibel, FL Bill, The recent increase in information and awareness about concussions has stemmed from concerns from the professional sports community and is no less important for children. While many students suffer concussions from sports, concussions also result from accidents, fights, and falls and from rough and tumble play. Some states are beginning to enact legislation that establish standards for managing concussions and brain injuries to students and imposing penalties as House Bill 200 does in Pennsylvania. Many other states have proposed legislation to help protect students from concussions and/or related issues to concussions. Some type of bump or blow to the head and/or body causes a concussion. A concussion as described by Michael Collins, PhD, is an energy crisis in the brain, damages brain cells and may cause chemical changes within the brain. Some indicators of a concussion include headache, feeling slowed, difficulty in concentrating, dizziness, fogginess, fatigue, visual blurring, light sensitivity, memory dysfunction, and balance. The Centers for Disease Control places concussion symptoms into categories: thinking/ remembering, physical, emotional/mood, and sleep. Symptoms can take as long as several weeks to emerge. Each injury is different and must be treated differently based on the diagnosis. Length of recovery depends on the severity of the concussion and the individual. There is no single cure or treatment for a concussion. Here are some basic safety measures that should be in place including appropriate coaching, enforcement of relevant rules, protective gear although there are no concussion-proof helmets and quick and accurate assessment of anyone suspected to have sustained a concussion. The skill of the player can also have a role in suffering a concussion. It is imperative that a student stops participating immediately if he or she is experiencing any symptoms of a concussion. A return to play should be approved by the students physician, the team trainer, physician and coach as well as the athletic administrator for the school. Working to develop school and district procedures for return to play guidelines would be an excellent joint project for parents and the school. According to the CDC there are steps you can take to protect your children from concussion during a sports activity:continued on page 47

The visit was a special request of one of PPECs patients. Medlocke is a parttime resident of Fort Myers. PPEC, which is a unit of The Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida, is a friendly and nurturing place for children with special medical needs requiring nursing care and therapy services. In some ways PPEC is like a day care center but, unlike traditional day care, the PPEC provides medical care, developmental planning and interventions, case management, and education and support for parents. Children also receive the benefits of socialization and peer stimulation, which is a unique advantage to this type of program. Staffed with nurses and pediatric professionals, the PPEC works directly with pediatricians, therapists, social workers, developmental specialists, teachers and dietitians to provide comprehensive special needs care.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 12, 201142 Around The Islands With AnneTower Gallery Displays Work Of 23 Local Artistsby Anne MitchellTower Gallery is perhaps the oldest of the islands art galleries and, most certainly, is housed in the oldest building, a 1926 former beach cottage. The gallery dates back 30 years, starting off in Bell Tower Shops in Fort Myers in 1981 and landing on Sanibel 25 years ago. It is a cooperative representing 23 local artists, among them painters, sculptors, potters, fabric artists, glass artists and even one Charlie Brown who practices the Japanese art of gyotaku, using local fish species to make imprints on paper. The inside of this charming gallery is just as colorful and exuberant as the multicolored exterior. Its a veritable rabbit warren of interconnecting small rooms whose white walls show off all kinds of art to great advantage. Theres even a fireplace and an upstairs. There are too many artists to mention them all (go to www.towergallery-sanibel. com). You will find plenty of great work here of almost every genre. Each artist takes a turn running the store so you may be fortunate to find the creator of your purchase on hand to make it more personal. However, Tower Gallery is a treasure trove for gift ideas, many of them affordable and unique, so drop in regularly theres always something new. Here are some impressions from my recent visit: I almost screamed with delight at Steve Bufters Baseboard Mice ($11) little rodent portraits on wood to place strategically against your wall; and Katie Gardenias Pickle Finger Forks, made from old forks artfully forged and bead-embellished, and her Cake Testers, for checking the done-ness of your gateaux with style (includes one of her cake recipes), $20 each. Connie and Ron Sebring, she a glass artist, he a painter and sculptor, collaborate on their Blarney Stones. He prepares smooth river pebbles with indentations for her fused glass rods to fit into great gifts and conversation pieces ($48). Joyce Krivenkos silver bracelets and amulets are a wonder of swirls and twirls, featuring ceramic, glass and stones. For a hand-made, one-of-a-kind jewelry item, they are well priced at $105 to $115. Eyecatching too are JoAnne Bedients raku creations including cats, clocks, vases, bottles and funky ceramic shoes that look as though they came straight from Lady Gagas closet. Tower Gallery is open seven days a week, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., at 751 Tarpon Bay Road, Sanibel, phone 472-4557.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 12, 201144 deaRPharmacistVinpocetine To Improve Memoryby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: My 88 year old mother-inlaw takes an herb from a flower. Its called Vinpocetine. She is as sharp as a tack and has the memory of a 20 year old. She credits this flower pill for it. Im only 50 and I cant remember certain words or events in my own life. Have you heard of this, and can it help everyone with memory loss? SS, Newark, New Jersey Vinpocetine is one of my favorite memory boosters which may account for sharpness. Its a semi-synthetic derivative of vincamine which comes from the beautiful periwinkle plant and increases blood flow to your brain. There are many ways to increase blood flow in the body, but not many that can get past the brains outerwear, termed the blood brain barrier. The fact that vinpocetine can penetrate that helps it deliver more precious oxygen, glucose and nutrients to your brain. Vinpocetine can improve attention and alertness, and it may have a positive effect on the damaged brain, like for people who have suffered a stroke. Vinpocetine helps drive production of ATP, an energy molecule. Who couldnt use a bit more brain energy?! Some fairly well-designed studies show that vinpocetine can help with poor night vision, glaucoma or macular degeneration. I think it is worth a try for people with some types of hearing loss, vertigo and Reynauds. Because vinpocetine is so adept at increasing circulation, it begs the question, Can it improve blood flow to my ailing heart? I think it can, but do approve this with your physician and cardiologist. Vinpocetine dilates blood vessels, and seems to decrease plaque formation. I realize some of you will want to start vinpocetine, but please note that like all drugs, even the plant-based ones, there are risks. By increasing blood flow, vinpocetine will interact with all types of blood thinners including warfarin, clopidogrel (brand Plavix), Lovenox and heparin among others. I wouldnt combine vinpocetine with natural blood thinners either, including ginkgo biloba or ginger. If you are scheduled for dental work, or surgery, please stop the herb two weeks before your visit. Vinpocetine is generally well tolerated at lower doses (like 10 mg per day), but when you get into higher doses (10 mg three or four times daily) then you may begin to experience any of the following: Nausea, indigestion, insomnia, dizziness, hot flashes, dry mouth or headache. If you have any vascular or cardiac issues, please ask your doctor. If your doctor approves of vinpocetine, buy it at any health food store. As I always say, Start low! So begin taking 5 or 10 mg daily. Effects are often noticed the first week. You can always titrate to higher doses if you want to, over a few weeks. Most clinical research trials use about 10 mg three times daily, but again, dosing is very individual and should be customized to your personal medical history and drug regimen. DID YOU KNOW: The FDA just approved a new prescription blood thinner that will compete against Plavix and Coumadin. Its called Brilinta. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition. Suzy Cohen is the author of The 24-Hour Pharmacist and is a registered pharmacist. To contact her, visit www. Got A Problem? Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: I am one of those adults who experiences sleep difficulties. I dont want to take drugs, and I have tried listening to relaxation tapes. Do you have any other suggestions?A: The fact that you want to sleep using natural methods is definitely workable. The amount of sleep you need varies on several factors, from age to diet to meditation. Nevertheless, sleep experts generally agree that seven to nine hours per day is most effective for an average adult (although some people may require more or less). In working with many adults over the years, I have found the following methods to be most effective: 1. Establish a regular bedtime routine such as going to bed approximately the same time every night and waking up the same time every morning. 2. Create an environment that is conducive to effective sleep patterns such as dark, quiet, comfortable, and cool conditions. 3. Use your bedroom only for sleep and lovemaking. No TV. 4. Do not eat anything two to three hours prior to your bedtime. 5. Avoid drinking caffeine and alcohol close to bedtime. Although you mentioned that the relaxation tapes did not help, perhaps you could vary them and see if one works better for you. I would recommend Bellruth Naparstaks Healthful Sleep CD.

Immediate assistance is provided to these families, no matter the time of day, by well-trained community volunteers. DAT members, or Disaster Action Team members, provide these services and are an integral part in how the Red Cross plays out its humanitarian mission across Southwest Florida every day. Regionally, the Red Cross has more than 500 certified volunteers. However, there is an increasing need to strengthen the number of DAT volunteers. Its the most rewarding thing youll likely ever do, said Carlene Sharples, disaster chair for the Lee County Red Cross. Youre helping people at one of the worst times in their lives. DAT teams work on-call in shifts. Typical shifts are 12 or 24 hours, though DAT leaders work carefully to consider individuals schedules. These volunteers must be able to work directly with people following disasters, be at least 18 years old and have a valid drivers license. Standard Red Cross volunteer courses are required and specialized training courses are provided for DAT members. If you are interested in becoming a DAT volunteer for the Red Cross in Collier County, contact Andy Jerant or Donna Barineau at 596-6868. In Lee County, contact John Cain or Carlene Sharples at 278-3401. Disaster Action Team volunteers help people at some of the worst times in their lives 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, Please tell me why some seniors still fall for the financial scams of the telemarketers. It seems to me that advice is given to avoid these scams in all of the newspapers, magazines and on television and it still keeps happening. Please help me understand this behavior. Verna Dear Verna, The criminal elements that operate these telemarketing scams are very experienced and know their trade very well. They absolutely have no conscience and will convince vulnerable seniors to voluntarily turn over their hard-earned nest eggs. The seniors are probably lonely, depressed, may not read newspapers or discuss their problems with others. Some seniors may have some mental impairment and really need to have their financial assets protected by a professional legal advisor. Lizzie Dear Verna, Telemarketers and scam artists are so darn good at what they do and so plentiful, unfortunately many people can get caught in their webs, young and old alike. Telemarketers and scam artists have a knack of exploiting needs and vulnerabilities. Combine that with an individual experiencing some cognitive or mood changes, and that is a recipe for exploitation. In our area, the attorney generals office is an invaluable resource to assist individuals who have been exploited. If you have been or know someone who has been exploited, call your local attorney generals office for assistance. Pryce Lizzie and Pryces email address is Barrier Island Title Services, Inc.

For Wisequacks to play in this century you have to tweet. And so we were dragged, kicking and streaming, into the 140 keystroke world of Twitter. Weve now got a skookum website and some rockin YouTubes. We podcast like Orcas and are twittering away on tweeter these days to say nothing of being completely bookfaced most of the time, or whatever. Dr. Rob Sealey and I now have four good tweets a week and we feel better for it. Its a load off our minds to be able to bring to you the medical headlines from across the planet and summarize them in 140 strokes, complete with insightful, detailed commentary. Some of them may cause you to change your life, others may cause you to change your Fruit of the Looms. An exciting new vaccine appears to cure prostate cancer in mice! Next step is to test on rats, then lawyers, baboons and finally humans. Peppermint is superb for gut aches and spasms but can aggravate anal itchiness. Thinking of branding a peppermint drug, Scratch and Wind. New study shows men with ED have very high incidence of sleep apnea. Guess the only breath theyre taking away these days... is their own. Latest medical news reveals that drinking coffee may reduce prostate cancer risk... apparently Starbucks is already marketing the Prostalatte Recent medical journal headline: Heavy cell phone use might raise risk of brain tumours. Glad my cell phone only weighs 3 ounces. Study shows that exercising only one hour per week reduces the incidence of colonic polyps. Get a runners high, avoid a high colonic. A new study reveals that motivational text messages will help smokers to quit... especially if theyre from the coroner. Those with rheumatoid arthritis found to be predisposed to have COPD (emphysema/bronchitis), proving smoking joints does cause lung disease. Study shows that hard short interval exercise is much healthier than endurance exercise. Doesnt mean an interval of every three years. A recent study revealed that too much sex could cause a cerebral hemorrhage... another good reason to get married. Actual headline in April Archives of Surgery: Hungover Surgeons (redundant?) Make More Mistakes. Whats next? Life found to be terminal? Talking about parasites and worms on our appetizing radio show. On a similar note there is a election debate in my town today... Research shows survival of a heart attack is highest in a gym than anywhere else. Maybe the fear of being seen dead in Spandex? Canadian researchers show that pregnancy is safe for women with MS. Safer for women with MRS. Study shows that gambling on computers is leading to some serious addiction problems. I gambled on a PC and lost. As doctors, we always have to attend courses to update our skills... todays course is Bear Mountain Golf Resort. 10 grams of soluble fiber/day is the key to trimming bad internal (visceral) fat. Bad fat is the key to trimming longevity problems. Had a great interview today with the remarkable Bif Naked and like the mature MDs we are, we resisted all naked jokes. We focused on Biffys. More and more conditions are proving to be genetic. Even the ability to have kids is hereditary; if your parents didnt, you probably wont. Now an amazing study that flossing actually prevents pancreatic cancer, one of the nastiest of all tumors. Well, there goes my hockey team. So if you want be twitterified then go to and click the twitterpate thing and wed be glad to send them to you. If not, well send Janelle after you. Like the column?
