Terry Igo, the president of the Sanibel Captiva Trust Company and past SCA board member, has enthusiastically accepted the position as chairperson for the campaign. Already he has enlisted the help of over 75 islanders to move this fundraising phase into high gear, Meek said. The Community House embodies the spirit of Sanibel and the broad range of people volunteering to help this campaign reinforces how islanders come together for a cause. The Community House is a historical gem and this campaign, by thoroughly upgrading the building and grounds, will restore it to the center of community life, said Igo. It is our largest gathering place on the islands and its very important that it fully serve todays residents and visitors. In choosing a campaign logo that simply states 1927 Capital Campaign, we honor our long-standing place in the community while reaffirming our ongoing commitment to providing for the current and future needs of our islands. The Community House was built in 1927 on donated land and by the islanders, who worked side by side to construct the building and turn it into their social gathering place. Over the decades generations of islanders have met there for every conceivable civic, educational and social event, including its signature Shell Fair and Show that has attracted shell enthusiasts from around the world for 75 years. The passage of time, however, has taken its toll on the original historic building and its two additions. Since the 1990s there have been a series of plans drawn up to rebuild The Community House, but now our time has come, said Meek. For over three years the board has developed the strategy, the vision, the passion, which have culminated in the current schematic plans. We thought of only one person to run the capital campaign and we are delighted Terry accepted the position. He has a proven success record of leading capital campaigns, including one for The Sanibel School, and is the right person to get people engaged and united for our common goal. There will be a series of social events held through the fall and winter to promote the campaign and get islanders input. A kick-off party on November 9 will feature a dinner and homespun stories by honorary co-chairs Francis Bailey and Porter Goss and other islanders. It will be an evening to celebrate what The Community House has meant to this community and what the future holds. The architectural site plan and artistic rendering of the grounds are on display in the lobby as well as on and in a soon-to-be released brochure. continued on page 8 Rendering of The Community House with proposed additions CROWs 30th Annual Taste Of The IslandsThe Clinic for the Rehabilitation Of Wildlife (CROW) announced that the 30th annual Taste of the Islands will be held on Sunday, November 13 at Sanibel Community Park on Periwinkle Way. This event has become a traditional and highly anticipated part of the islands calendar. For the second consecutive year, Bank of the Islands/Edison National Bank will be the Presenting Sponsor for this gala tasting of Sanibel and Captiva restaurants finest creations. Renowned artist Ikki Matsumoto has again provided his unique creativity in designing a logo for this years Taste. The logo shows a feast presented by local wildlife, reflecting CROWs mission of saving wildlife through compassion, care and education, as well as the traditions of Taste of the Islands. CROW is presently organizing sponsors and participating restaurants. More information is available by emailing info@ or by calling 472-3644. International Coastal CleanupThis year, the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation will coordinate the cleanup on the beaches of Sanibel and Captiva, working with the Ocean Conservancy, Keep Lee County Beautiful and the City of Sanibel. The date has been set for Saturday, September 17 at 9 a.m. In this international effort, hundreds of thousands of people will descend on beaches, bays, and rivers all over the world to remove trash and debris on land and under the water. Volunteers of all ages from every continent will form the largest one-day volunteer event on behalf of clean oceans and waterways: Ocean Conservancys International Coastal Cleanup. What makes the International Coastal Cleanup unique is its data collection component. Volunteers record specific types of marine debris being found, allowing Ocean Conservancy to compile, analyze and track this data year by year and discover the behaviors that cause the debris. The final information is used to educate the public, business, industry, and government officials about the problems. Understanding the problems is the key to finding long-lasting solutions. The Coastal Cleanup is a way to get involved locally with an international effort, in which thousands of individuals are working together to clean up their shores and have fun in the process. Bring your bags back to SCCF and join everyone for hot dogs on the porch. Call Dee for more information at 4722329 or just report for duty at 9 a.m. September 17 (cleanup lasts until noon) at the SCCF Nature Center at 3333 SanibelCaptiva Road, or to Captiva Kayak at 11401 Andy Rosse Lane on Captiva.

Success in school and in society depends on an array of abilities. Data supports long-established anecdotal knowledge that music education makes kids smarter. What is new and especially compelling, however, is a combination of tightly-controlled behavioral studies and groundbreaking neurological research that show how music study can actively contribute to brain development.

7 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 2, 2011 Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellSanibel-Captiva Rotary Club membership has been going strong this summer, with three new members since July. We welcomed Doug Wright, from Union Mechanical in Fort Myers a few weeks back; Mary Cramer, honorary member spouse of long-time Rotarian, Art Cramer, last week; and this week, Nancy McHenry, director of CHR (Community Housing & Resources on Sanibel). Increasing Rotary Club membership and retaining our current membership allows all of us to work together and continue the strong commitment our club has within our community and on national and international projects. Those efforts afford us the opportunity to support Rotary Club efforts and those of our partnering organizations along with other non-profits that we support during the year. Membership is the strongest asset for any service organization and Rotary International has over 33,976 clubs and over 1.22 million members worldwide. Members are of all genders, all ages, all nationalities, all religions, all professions, and all political persuasions (although, we dont talk too much about politics). If you have an interest in Rotary, we invite you to join us at 7 a.m. any Friday morning for breakfast at Beachview Steakhouse & Tavern on Sanibel. Well even buy you breakfast. At last weeks meeting, we had a sneak preview of a book that Art Cramer has been working on for the last six months. Cramer is writing his autobiography at the request of his children and hopes that at completion, it might even be interesting enough for general publication. He said, Ive been writing down my memoirs since I was a kid, tucking them away in boxes along with other documents and memorabilia and storing them in the basement of my up North home. Unfortunately, not such a safe place because a flood almost destroyed everything. He did get to save a few items and is trying to piece together the story of his life. Writing down your life story for future generations of your family is an outstanding way for them to know who you were and help them follow the timeline of their family history. Cramer had three stories that he selected from his memoirs, stories grouped together with the common thread that Im calling One Lucky Guy or Born with a Lucky Horseshoe in My Back Pocket. Seems Cramer has somehow managed to survive some pretty harsh situations during his lifetime and that survival can only be called good fortune. Each of these occurrences took place in the 1940s. Story number one: It was during WWII and I was going to City College in New York City as part of the AST Program and was called up and assigned to the Army 275th Combat Engineering Battalion, 75th Division, Company A. On the final bivouac before our company was going overseas we were practicing camp set-up routines, our assignment this time was that two-man teams were to silently set up tents within an encampment. The problem was, it was a moonless night in the hills of Kentucky. My tent mate and I had to feel our way to a suitable site, a site without rocks or roots underneath, and put our tent up silently. All was well. The next morning I awoke and could not open my eyes. My eyes were like continued on page 41 Sanibel-Captiva Rotary President Joel Ospa, new club member Nancy McHenry, and club sponsor Janet Strickland Art Cramer with his machete Open Mon.

9 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 2, 2011 From page 6Sanibel Sea Schooleventually weighed anchor and traveled further up island. We enjoyed a picnic lunch and seined for near-shore fishes always in search of those elusive tarpon larvae. We then got back in the boat and sampled the plankton with a plankton net a fine meshed net designed to capture creatures greater than 0.3 mm in size. Once our plankton observation was done, we headed back to our deployment point to hopefully visit our coconut current drogues. But, we could not find a single coconut on the Gulf of Mexico it was as though a giant wand had erased our happy little coconuts from the earth. Oh well, we would just have to wait and see if anyone would find our little friends and give us a call. The first message arrived at Sanibel Sea School on Friday evening! Someone had found one of our coconuts in Naples! Our initial prediction of Captiva landings, based on the observations of the drifting coconuts, didnt pan out. Over the weekend, 18 more were reported from kind people who found coconuts all over the beaches of Naples and even on Keewaydin Island, south of Naples. We still have calls coming in and great hopes for the rest of our coconut explorers. Next stop? Maybe Marco Island? Maybe Cuba? Our coconut current study is yielding a lot of insights. One of them is that what we do here on Sanibel can have a direct impact on our neighbors in Naples. Its funny, I never thought of Naples as the town next door, but in our ocean world they seem to be. And that makes us wonder about the flotsam landing on our beaches. Where is it coming from? We learned a lot in our last week of summer camp. We celebrated the silver king, made new friends, had some adventures and found out that pretty interesting things can happen when you study the ocean in simple, old-fashioned ways. Sanibel Sea School is a 501c3 dedicated to a world in which all people value, understand and care for the ocean. Visit us in person or at sanibelseaschool. org. Kathy Curtis shows off the coconut she discovered during her daily run near Port Royal Club on Naples BeachShell Museum To Train Junior Docents The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum will conduct volunteer junior docent training for sixth graders. The live tank service project requires six hours of training, and those sessions will be held after school at the museum from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. on Monday, September 12, 19 and 26. Once training has been successfully completed, junior docents may lead live tank demonstrations from October through April. A refresher course for seventh and eighth graders will be held at the same time on Monday, October 3 and 10. This is an opportunity for young shell lovers to earn community service hours while learning about marine mollusks in the live tank or in their natural marine habitats. The more they are taught about marine mollusks, the more they can help museum visitors better understand and appreciate mollusks, their habitats, reproduction, travel and locomotion, protection, survival and feeding. For more information about becoming a junior docent, contact Public Programs Specialist Diane Thomas at 395-2233 or email her at Junior docent, left, Charlie Reinhardt gives a live tank demonstration.

For more information call 433-4901 or email A. JOHN BARTIS Former Sanibel and Fort Myers resident and well-known New York theater personality A. John Bartis died in Naples early Wednesday, August 24, 2011. Known far and wide as John, his real name was really Aristides, which he dropped when he became a professional singer. Born in 1924 in Meriden, Connecticut, he attended Tufts and graduated from Wesleyan University with honors in psychology, enlisted in the navy for two years, and took graduate studies at Yale. Then it was on to New York where he took voice with Romano Romani, Rosa Ponsells coach. During his 15 years in New York he played in Hazel Flagg in 1953; he appeared in Inside USA and Miss Liberty with Bea Lillie (and Eddie Albert in the latter show), and with Ethel Merman in Call Me Madam. He was one of New Yorks foremost vocal coaches from the s through the s teaching, among many others, James Farentino, Ruth Buzzi, Cicily Tyson, John Cryer and Julie Newmar. (He was actively teaching his private students in Southwest Florida until the end of this past May.) He met Frank Wagner, prominent Broadway director/choreographer/jazz dance instructor and late husband of Islander theater critic, Marsha Wagner, during this period as well. John and Arthur Partington were instructors at Choate Rosemary Hall Prep School in Wallingford, Connecticut, John teaching drama, theater arts and voice, and Arthur dance. The two also started the Connecticut Academy of Dance & Theatre which they operated until retiring to Sanibel in 1980. Once they got to Sanibel and, after spending many, many summers in Arrezzo, Italy, they created the world-famous Pinocchios Italian Gelato/Ice Cream Shop on Sanibels east end. John became a great, great chef, according to Robert Cacioppo, artistic director of Florida Repertory Theatre, and was a truly fabulous storyteller. He was a great nurturer of young talent and a mentor to many, with leading man good looks; he taught singing and acting gratis to our interns at the Arcade since we opened. I cant tell you how much Carries and my children loved him. He was always Uncle John to them as well as to Marsha and Franks daughter and granddaughters and was immensely important in our lives, very much a family member. We shall miss him terribly. The End of an Era we all know what that means and the nostalgia it brings with it, former Sanibel resident Jay Halcrow mused. With the death of John Bartis an era has closed. He and his friend of over 50 years, Arthur Partington, welcomed me into a wonderful world of great friendship, food fit for kings, absolute silliness and laughter. To me it was a gift from two very special brothers who made my entrance into Sanibel life fun, interesting, and filled with great kindness. Now they are both gone and the small world we all inhabit will never be the same for me or for the group of friends that were our island family. The era may be over, but it will never to be forgotten. Although he was in New York at the same time as John and John knew of him, Dennis Cunningham, CBSs main theater commentator did not meet John until he (Cunningham) had been living in Southwest Florida for eight years; they met at Florida Rep. I simply cant say enough about him, Cunningham, who now lives in Fort Myers Beach, said. He was a treasured friend. He was so centered, he really knew who he was He always gave his full attention to his students and took great pride in their advancement. We spent many, many hours together telling stories and discussing all kinds of things in his salon, as I called it, in McGregor Woods; and he was one of the most sociable people I ever met my greatly treasured friend, whom I will sorely miss. John is survived his brother, Thomas J. Bartis of Naples; nieces Mary and Theresa of Meriden and Fran Dioguardi of Sanibel; and nephews Peter and James of Meriden and John A. Bartis, who had been staying with him in Fort Myers since December; many great nephews and nieces plus a never-ending list of dear friends and students. A private family service will take place this week in Connecticut, and a memorial service will be held sometime in November at the Arcade Theatre. And, finally, a few thoughts from Marsha Wagner People come into our lives to mentor, enrich and change us; John Bartis was that person the universe chose to send me. I was introduced to John by my late husband Frank, shortly after we were engaged to be married. Our deep and lasting closeness began with that introduction and lasted some 56 years. John became Uncle John to all of us when my daughter Lisa was born and he became her Godfather. One can only measure friendship by the richness and color it adds to life, and John added all of that to mine. John had become the older brother Ive always yearned for and never had, he was my best buddy, my awesome singing teacher, my challenging acting director, my rock to hold me steady when my beloved Frank died, my health advocate, my culinary instructor, the pal I could share laughs with and, when life handed me lemons, he showed me how to make lemonade. Our family became part of the Bartis clan when we bought our house in the Bartis compound on Hanover Pond in Meriden. Frank and I moved to Sanibel because of Uncle John, who had opened an ice cream parlor selling Pinocchios gelato. Friendship is like that; its roots go deep and are intricately intertwined. There are no words to say how very much I will miss him but, then again, I will choose to live the words we both chose when our beloved partners died I will live fearlessly and passionately, enjoying each day as though it were my last. Farewell, dearest friend thank you for all you have taught me. Meanwhile, Lets go on with the show! Love, Mush photo courtesy of SW Florida Happenings OBITUARY Email your editorial copy to:

BUTCH COTTRILLWaide Allen Butch Cottrill, 66, of Fort Myers, passed away August 24, 2011, at Hospice House after a courageous battle with cancer. A charter boat captain on Captiva Island for more than 30 years, he operated Wave Dancer Charters. He loved boating, fishing, golden retrievers, Maine coon cats and classic cars. He was an avid reader who often finished a book a day. Though he was tough as nails, he also had a soft side and took great pleasure in rescuing golden retrievers and growing orchids. His best friend once described him as a puppy dog in a porcupine suit. He was a unique individual who knew how to spin a story, tell a good joke, and fix anything that broke. Some of his happiest days were spent on the water, teaching family and friends to fish and enjoy the beauty of Southwest Florida. He is survived by his wife and soulmate Cathy, of Fort Myers; brother Jim Cottrill (Joyce) of Columbus, Ohio; sister-in-law Betty Cottrill of Columbus; sister-in-law Judith Thompson of Naples; brother-in-law and sister-in-law Steve and Deborah Studybaker of Fort Myers; numerous nephews; lifelong friend Duane Swetland of Bradenton; golden retrievers Cassidy and Tanner; and four Maine coon cats. He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Thelma Cottrill, and his brother, Ron. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Golden Retriever Rescue of Southwest Florida, P.O. Box 110987, Naples, FL 34108. A burial at sea and celebration of his life will be held on Captiva Island at a later date for family and close friends. Arrangements by Shikanys Bonita Funeral Home 992-4982. MARION ISAKSONMarion Savage Isakson, formerly of Cheshire, Connecticut; Chilmark, Massachusetts; and Sanibel, died peacefully in her sleep on July 7 at Peconic Landing, Greenport, New York. She was 91. Born October 31, 1919 in Meriden, Connecticut, Marion was the daughter of Eleanor Dyer Savage and Walter Elliot Savage. After graduating from Jackson College of Tufts University in 1941, Marion trained in merchandising at Jordan Marsh in Boston and also worked as a bridal buyer for Worths Department Store in Hartford, Connecticut. Her hope had been to write for a womens magazine. She married Robert Owen Hawkins in 1942; he died in 1944. A young widow with a small child, Marion turned to a career in education. She received a certificate in early childhood education from Yale University in 1948, a second bachelors degree in elementary education from Southern Connecticut State College in 1949, and her masters in educational administration from Stanford University in 1952. Marion was active in education throughout her life as a teacher (first grade and high school English), a teacher trainer, a consultant in early childhood development, a reading specialist in the Cheshire Public Schools, English department co-chair at the Day Prospect Hill School in New Haven, a representative for reading materials and literature programs, and a writer and editor for local publications wherever she lived. She was a champion of education for women and an active and avid member of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) for 70 years, from 1942 until 2007 when the local Greenport, New York chapter of AAUW closed. Voted best dressed by her college classmates, she also never lost her sense of style. Marions passion for education and her leading edge spirit as a professional woman were only surpassed by her love of and devotion to her family. Marion was predeceased by her husband of almost 45 years, Carl Isakson, in January of 1999. She is survived by her two daughters and their spouses, Roberta Martin (Paul) of New York and Carla Swedish (Bill) of Seattle; two grandchildren, Christopher and Elizabeth Martin, and two step-granddaughters, Jessica (Swedish) Kerkhofs and Rachel Swedish, and two step-great-grandchildren. Marion and Carl were residents of Cheshire, Connecticut from 1954 until 1989 and founding members of the Copper Valley Swim and Tennis Club and later of the Farms Country Club. Marion and Carl were residents of Sanibel from 1989 until 1999, and Marion remained on Sanibel after Carls death until 2001, residing then briefly in Naples, Florida, until 2002. She was active in retirement on Sanibel as a tutor of elementary school children and a member of The Dunes Nifty Niners. Marion and Carl were also seasonal residents of Marthas Vineyard, Massachusetts, for five months of every year, from 1967 until 1997. Marion loved every aspect of the Vineyard and enjoyed sharing that love with family and guests in her Chilmark home, off South Road. Burial and memorial services were private. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Tufts University in Marions memory. 395-1263 2499 Periwinkle Way In the Baileys Sanibels Premier Dining Experience Open 11am-11pm Or Later FRESH DAILY LUNCH AND DINNER SPECIALS DINNER SPECIALS FAMILY FRIENDLY GAME ROOM FAMILY FRIENDLY GAME ROOM Chris Casdia Acoustic Guitar and Vocals Fri 7-11 pm Steve Scooter Reynolds Rock Country Blues Sat 7-11 pm Chris Workman Keyboard and Vocals Sun 7-11 pm LABOR DAY LABOR DAY WEEKEND ENTERTAINMENT WEEKEND ENTERTAINMENT OBITUARY OBITUARY To advertise in the Island Sun Call 395-1213

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 2, 201116 Roaming Schools Of Big Redfishby Capt. Matt MitchellEvery year about this time, mature redfish begin to school up in Pine Island Sound and Charlotte Harbor before they head offshore to continue their adult lives as the breeding stock. Although mid-September through October is usually the best time for this seasonal fishery, it is already starting to kick off. I have had several reports of schools of a hundred or more redfish located on flats at the northern end of the sound along with big numbers of reds on the docks around the passes. Keep your eyes open while on the water as these big reds can be located just about anywhere at anytime though they are generally easier to spot in shallow water. Oyster bars, sandbars, flats, docks and the passes are all places that can hold these huge schools of hungry redfish. The deep hole just off the Sanibel Pier will get crazy too with these over-theslot reds in the next month or so. Shallow water sightfishing for these roaming schools is some of my favorite fishing of the year. Though sometimes hard to locate, once found these schools will eat just about anything pitched to them from cut bait and live bait to topwater plugs. Their large numbers seem to make them really competitive when a bait is presented in front of them with often a dozen or more fish charging the bait. Shoals and oyster bars can often hold these schools for weeks. They generally show up at the same stage of the tide to feed, so once you have it dialed in its easy fishing. Watching a big school of hundreds of redfish working around an oyster bar in clear water or out on a flat is possibly one of the coolest things you will ever see out in the sound. Calm conditions make locating these schools easier. Often a big shake, push or simply nervous water will be the only clue that gives up their location. Schools can be spotted from a hundred yards or more away when the conditions are right. Getting up close enough to catch redfish can be another thing though, as it takes stealth and patience. One hundred-plus sets of eyes make these schools very spooky and wary of fishermen and boats. Shallow, clear flats located from the middle to northeast end of the sound seem to be about the most perfect water to sight-fish for these reds. This water stays nice and clear and is shallow enough to see the fish pushing water on almost any stage of the tide. There are plenty of small mangrove islands too, which block the wind, giving you calm conditions while fishing the lee sides. I do lots of redfish fishing up close and around these same islands on high tides most of the year but now these schools are often out in wide open water before they make their way out of the passes. Oyster bars south of Useppa, the many oyster bars around the north tip of Bokeelia and the flats at Fosters Point on North Captiva were a few of the more productive places I got on these redfish schools the past few years. The Burnt Store bar and the Jug Creek shoals are also places that these fish show up on in huge numbers. I like to scout out the schools while moving fast on the trolling motor until I spot them and then switch over to the push pole to approach them quietly. If you have never sight-fished for oversized redfish, get ready; its getting to be the time.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.

19 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 2, 2011Artist Spotlight At Sanibel ChurchLora Lea Plummer, painter and photographer, is a Florida native who received her degree in graphic arts from Southwest Florida College. She has been using her talent and skills to build a collection of paintings utilizing acrylic paints, beads, colored glass and various techniques which create a multi-dimensional aspect to her canvases. Her works will be on display at Sanibel Congregational Church during September and October. The first thing you will notice when viewing her collection is color and lots of it. There is a sense of whimsy in Plummers style, a bit of the abstract and a ton of passion. Shes known for her heart series, and dots abound as her signature. Plummer has been commissioned privately for several murals in Lee County, as well as being a shining star for her sisters art company, Oliver & Willoughby. Along with her beautiful paintings in this exhibit, she has a collaborative collection with C-Boards (another local artist), of hand painted heart-shaped wood birdhouses, and two butterfly houses, which will be on display as well, inside Fellowship Hall at Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ located at 2050 Periwinkle Way. Call the church office for viewing times, 472-0497. Theological Studies ProgramThe fall semester of the theological studies program at the Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ begins September 14 with a three-part examination of the relationship between capitalism and Christianity.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 2, 201120 CROW Case Of The Week: Great Blue Heronby Emilie AlfinoWhen an adult great blue heron arrived at CROW July 13, no history came with him. (You cant be sure of the sex of an adult great blue heron, but well refer to the patient as he.) He was lying down all day his first day at CROW, very dull and quiet, according to Dr. Jess Brugler, and he was also dehydrated. Still, he tried to bite someone. Herons are very aggressive birds, Dr. Jess explained. But after that first attempt, he let the staff try to help him. He was very weak and couldnt hold his head up very well. When we went to look in his mouth, it was very easy for us to do and he didnt try to shut it on us, Dr. Jess added. Something that greatly disturbed CROW staff was that his third eyelid didnt blink at all on either side. The third eyelid is a clear membrane that dogs and cats also have. It is very important to birds, especially water birds. They can see through it, and it can allow them to look for food or predators while keeping their eyes lubricated and free of salt and sand. That in itself gave us some idea what was going on: weakness, lack of a blink response those symptoms indicate some kind of toxicosis, said Dr. Jess. Toxicosis simply means any abnormal condition caused by poison. It could have been a lot of things, Dr. Jess clarified. These birds sometimes get into chemicals in peoples backyards, it could have been something in the water he drank, red tide, rain washing things into the water, or eating a fish that was infected. A lot of the causes are natural, but some of them are not. The heron did not receive a wide variety of treatments. Dr. Jess was most concerned about dehydration and the fact that he wasnt eating well. He was pretty thin, she said. He was given subcutaneous fluids and some oral foods with a few herbs and homeopathic remedies. One of them is called Four Gentlemen. It helps promote good digestion and helps stimulate appetite. We use it a lot, said Dr. Jess. Its one of our staples here. He also received Liver Detox, which is actually for humans. For a bird the size of a heron, the dose is a couple of drops in a solution (theres also a spray). Vitamins rounded out his treatment. A lot of patients get vitamins B and C. It helps with immunity, appetite and overall health, Dr. Jess explained. Still, at this point the heron couldnt even stand up and was in a cage with a little nest to help him prop himself up. He was being administered artificial teardrops since he couldnt blink. For a couple of days he stayed about the same. Two days later he started holding his head up although he couldnt stand. We did some physical therapy with him, stretching his wings and legs so they wouldnt get cramped and would remember what they were supposed to be doing, said Dr. Jess.

21 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 2, 2011started putting the big bird in the tub and to hand feed him a couple of small fish not too much at once, as that can cause regurgitation. By July 17 he was starting to get his blink responses back. He had full response in his left eye and about half in his right eye, Dr. Jess stated. He was hand fed again for the second day in a row. The next day just five days after arriving at CROW the patient was able to sit up on his hocks (the hocks are the joints in the legs that correspond anatomically to the ankle in humans). He was kind of holding himself up on his wings on the edge of the tub, Dr. Jess said. That was amazing for us to see. Staff continued to do that in the tub the next day and progressed to doing it in his cage the day following that. By July 20, CROW staff was continuing the same treatments and hand-feeing him when he actually pulled fish out of his pool, making an attempt although he did need assistance to eat them. He stayed that way for a couple of days. Two days later, he was more reliably sitting up on his hocks and in the tub actually used his wings to sit up fully on his feet. We decided to stop the tub treatment because if he was able to get down from the tub he could hurt himself or someone in the clinic, Dr. Jess explained. A great heron is not the type of bird you want running around the clinic. They could be dangerous. He finally ate a fish on his own overnight three days later and was still up on his hocks. The Liver Detox was discontinued and staff stopped hand feeding him to see what he would do and, sure enough, he ate two more fish on his own. The following night, he ate all the fish staff left for him; the subcutaneous fluids were stopped and his oral medication was cut to once daily instead of twice. July 26 was a big day for him, Dr. Jess smiled. He was eating well. He was standing in his cage reliably. We moved him to a smaller cage inside so he could stretch out some. Each time I went out to see him, he was up on a perch or shelf, which was very promising. We monitored his appetite and he was eating very well and was very active. About a week later, the heron was moved to a larger cage where he could actually fly and staff could continue to monitor his flight to make sure that he was getting lift properly, flying without a lot of noise, and that his lift was adequate to fly up and around things. He spent just over two weeks in the large cage getting his bearings and practicing. The great blue heron was released August 18 in Fort Myers as close as possible to the place where he was found, as is CROWs practice. This is especially important for a great blue heron as they are very territorial and, if released somewhere other than home, he would most likely compete for someone elses territory.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 2, 201122 Plant SmartPampas Grassby Gerri ReavesPampas grass (Cortaderia selloana) is a graceful but tough native of South America. Its common name derives from the name of Argentinas famous grasslands, the pampas. This grass forms dense clumps of attractive foliage, but its the flowers that have made it a popular landscape plant. Those silvery or white feathery plumes of up to 10 feet tall make a striking landscape statement. When the plumes appear, the plant resembles a fountain, thus another common name, fountain grass. The flowers of the female plant, which are fuller than those of the male plant, are used in dried flower arrangements. Despite the plants ornamental attributes, several characteristics cause professionals to caution against introducing it into the landscape. Gardeners can be surprised and dismayed at how fast it grows and how large it gets. In addition, this prolific seeder can be invasive in favorable conditions. Add to those facts a tolerance for almost any growing condition or soil. Pampas grass razor-sharp narrow leaves pose a danger for people and pets, so this plant should not be placed near sidewalks, pools, benchers, or playgrounds. In fact, the word cortaderia is related to the Spanish word cortar, to cut. If youre considering planting ornamental grass in your yard, consider a low-maintenance Florida natives, such as Fakahatchee grass (Tripsacum dactyloides), muhly grass (Muhlenbergia capilaris), or sand cordgrass (Spartina bakeri).

29 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 2, 2011Class Open To Public Looks At Military Tribunals In U.S. History The Academy at Shell Point will offer a presentation that looks at Military Tribunals in U.S. History led by Tom Eastwood, a consultant, lecturer, and edutainer. This event will take place on Friday, September 9 from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., in the Grand Cypress Room at The Woodlands. This event is open to the public, but space is limited so tickets are required to attend and can be purchased for $10 each by calling 454-2054. This is a topic that has received a lot of media attention in the last decade, said Teri Kollath, manager of Academy and Volunteer Services. We hope this presentation will offer an insightful and timely review of the lessons from our history and how those choices affected the country then and now. We are extremely pleased to have Mr. Eastman speak about this topic and offer his perspective. Eastwood will discuss one the hottest issues facing our nation today should terrorists be tried in U.S. or military court by tracing the history of military tribunals from the American Revolution to the present. Eastwood began his career with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms before transferring to the Department of Defense. His career also included conducting and leading counterintelligence and criminal investigations, and he also has served as a senior executive for the Internal Revenue Service. The Academy at Shell Point is a lifelong learning educational initiative for the residents of the retirement community. The Academy provides anywhere from 70 to 90 classes each semester that encompass a well-rounded curriculum of educational opportunities for senior adults. The academy was named as one of 2008s most innovative active aging programs by the International Council on Active Aging, an association that supports professionals who develop wellness/fitness facilities and services for age 50-plus adults.

31 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 2, 2011Areas Two Professional Golf Tournaments Make Long-Term Commitments to Remain Hereby Ed FrankTwo long-running professional golf tournaments will return here this winter, and while they are months away, important news about both events was announced recently. First on the calendar is the popular Shark Shootout that will return for the 11th year to the Greg Norman-designed Tiburon Golf Club in Naples December 7-11. And returning as sponsor is Franklin Templeton Investments, the tournament sponsor from 1992-2005. Already committed to the nationally-televised event is the current PGA Champion Keegan Bradley, a bright young star in the professional ranks. In only his first year on the PGA tour, he is one of only three golfers in history to win a major tournament as a rookie. Not only did Bradley win this years PGA title, he also won the 2011 Byron Nelson championship while compiling $3.4 million in earnings. His aunt is former LPGA player and World Golf Hall of Fame member Pat Bradley. The 2011 Shark Shootout will be Normans 23rd a three-round competition that features 24 professionals paired into 12 two-person teams. Ace Group Classic The 25th edition of the Ace Group Classic February 13-19, 2012, moves back to TwinEagles Club in North Naples, the site of this Champions Tour event from 2002-06. Last years event was held at the Quarry in Naples. To insure the long-term viability of the tournament, one of the most popular on the Champions Tour, the Ace Group, an international insurance conglomerate, has entered into a multi-year sponsorship contract. The Ace Group has been the major sponsor since 1999. Bernard Langer, who won this years Ace Group Classic in record-setting fashion, is expected to return to defend his title next year at TwinEagles, a Jack Nicklaus-designed course. Leslie Baker, who has served in a variety of sports leadership positions, was recently named tournament director for the 2012 ACE Group Classic. Season Nears End For Miracle Baseball Team This weekend marks the conclusion of the 2011 season for the Fort Myers Miracle, and it certainly is not ending as second-year manager Jake Mauer had anticipated. The Miracle began the week with a 25-37 second-half season record and were eliminated from post-season play several weeks ago. The final two home games at Hammond Stadium are today, Thursday, and tomorrow, Friday, against Jupiter at 7:05 p.m. The Miracle closes the season this weekend on the road against the same Jupiter team. Its obvious that the two first-round draft selections of the Minnesota Twins that played for the Miracle this year, outfielder Aaron Hicks and pitcher Alex Wimmers, need further minor league experience before moving up to the Double A or Triple A level. Hicks began the week with just a .230 season average with 35 RBIs and five home runs. Wimmers, who spent most the season on the disabled list, was 1-3 in 11 games, compiling a 5.08 ERA in 37.2 innings. Of local interest, Cape Corals Jake Stevens began the year at Double A New Britain before being promoted to Triple A Rochester. Stevens appeared in 26 games for Rochester with a 4.21 ERA over 51.1 innings. 472-2411 www.SanibelMarketplace.comMonthly Sales Production Leaders ISLAND REAL ESTATE, INC.Independently Owned and Operated 1019 9 P eriwin k le W a y Legendary Service Local Knowledge Associates Award BoardSales Made This Period Real Estate Market Sales Informational Video Now AvailableGo to: Florida Licensed Real Estate Instructor, 2011 vs last year.

Early difficulties are soon worked out. Stability returns as adjustments are made. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A new romance tests the unattached Bovines patience to the limit. But Venus still rules the Taurean heart, so expect to find yourself trying hard to make this relationship work. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Its a good time to consider home-related purchases. But shop around carefully for the best price -whether its a new house for the family or a new hose for the garden. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A contentious family member seems intent on creating problems. Best advice: Avoid stepping in until you know more about the origins of this domestic disagreement. LEO (July 23 to August 22) A recent jobrelated move proves far more successful than you could have imagined. Look for continued beneficial fallout. Even your critics have something nice to say. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Ease up and stop driving yourself to finish that project on a deadline that is no longer realistic. Your superiors will be open to requests for an extension. Ask for it. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You should soon be hearing some positive feedback on that recent business move. An old family problem recurs, but this time youll know how to handle it better. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Some surprising statements shed light on the problem that caused that once-warm relationship to cool off. Use this newly won knowledge to help turn things around. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Your spiritual side is especially strong at this time. Let it guide you into deeper contemplation of aspects about yourself that youd like to understand better. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Your merrier aspect continues to dominate and to attract folks who rarely see this side of you. Some serious new romancing could develop out of all this cheeriness. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Youre always concerned about the wellbeing of others. Its time you put some of that concern into your own health situation, especially where it involves nutrition. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Just when you thought your life had finally stabilized, along comes another change that needs to be addressed. Someone you trust can help you deal with it successfully. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a sixth sense when it comes to finding people who need help long before they think of asking for it. And youre right there to provide it. On Sept. 7, 1813, the United States gets its nickname when a New York newspaper refers to Uncle Sam. The name is linked to meat packer Samuel Wilson, who supplied barrels of beef to the United States Army during the War of 1812. Wilson stamped the barrels with U.S. for United States, but soldiers began referring to the grub as Uncle Sams. On Sept. 6, 1847, writer Henry David Thoreau moves in with Ralph Waldo Emerson in Concord, Mass., after living for two years in a shack he built himself on Walden Pond. In 1854, his collection of essays, Walden, or Life in the Woods, is published. On Sept. 10, 1919, almost a year after the end of the First World War, New York City holds a parade to welcome home Gen. John J. Pershing, commander in chief of the American Expeditionary Force, and some 25,000 soldiers who had served on the Western Front. On Sept. 11, 1930, Katherine Anne Porters first collection of short stories, Flowering Judas, is published. During her lifetime, she published 25 stories and one novel, Ship of Fools, which took her more than two decades to complete. On Sept. 5, 1958, Boris Pasternaks romantic novel Dr. Zhivago is published in the United States. The book infuriated Soviet officials, but admirers of Pasternaks work began to smuggle the manuscript out of Russia piece by piece. The book won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1958. On Sept. 9, 1965, Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Sandy Koufax hurls the eighth perfect game in major-league history, leading the Dodgers to a 1-0 win over the Chicago Cubs at Dodger Stadium. Koufax retired after the 1966 season at just 30 years old because of arthritis in his elbow. On Sept. 8, 1974, President Gerald Ford pardons his disgraced predecessor Richard Nixon for any crimes he may have committed or participated in while in office. The Watergate scandal erupted after it was revealed that Nixon and his aides had engaged in illegal activities. With impeachment proceedings under way, Nixon became the first American president to resign. It was way back in the 17th century when noted Scottish scholar Patrick Young made the following sage observation: The trouble with weather forecasting is that its right too often for us to ignore it and wrong too often for us to rely on it.

33 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 2, 2011CCMI Team Competing In Captiva TriA special group of adult volunteers has stepped forward to represent Community Cooperative Ministries Inc. during the Galloway Captiva Tri at South Seas Island Resort, Captiva, Saturday and Sunday, September 17 and 18. CCMI was selected as the benefitting nonprofit for the Galloway Captiva Tri, a weekend triathlon family, fun and fitness event. A portion of the proceeds raised will go toward supporting CCMIs mission of fighting homelessness and hunger. CCMIs Montessori Directress Cindy Venezia and her friends Bob Boyd and Patty Kuehner will be running, biking and swimming for the local nonprofit agency during the adult sprint on Sunday. I have participated in just one 5K before so I am honored that Bob and Patty jumped at the chance to compete in this event with me, Venezia said. They both understand how great the need in this area is for hunger relief and really wanted to participate for CCMI. Boyd works in horticulture and Kuehner is a golf pro. Bob has been running, swimming and biking in races and triathlons for a number of years and only participates in those events that support a cause, Venezia said. Patty has been swimming since she was a kid and has competed in triathlons as well so Ive got a great team with me. The weekend is comprised of two childrens triathlons on Saturday: ages six to nine, 100-yard swim, 1.5-mile bike, .5-mile run; ages 10-13, 200-yard swim, 3-mile bike, 1-mile run;and an adult sprint length triathlon on Sunday, 440-yard swim (0.25 mile), 10-mile bike, 3.1-mile run (5K). We are always looking for new ways to partner with community groups and special events to spread our mission of being innovators in the fight against hunger and homelessness, said Sarah Owen, CEO of CCMI. Food-insecure people are especially vulnerable due to the additional risk factors associated with limited resources, access to healthy and affordable foods and opportunities for physical activity. Being a part of an event open to all age groups is a win-win. Our area has continued to have one of the worst foreclosure and unemployment rates, said Sam Galloway Jr., owner of the Galloway Automotive and title sponsor of the event. Galloway said he wants to ensure programs remain in place to help Southwest Floridas growing population of hungry be able to find a nutritious meal. More of our neighbors are going to need our help and we can make a difference, Galloway said. When hunger affects our community it impacts everyone of us in some way and if everyone of us does a small part to impact change, change will happen. It only takes two dollars to feed a family for a day. CCMI serves Fort Myers and the continued on page 49 601 5TH A VENUE. S.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 2, 201134 Superior InteriorsOutdoor Decorating Made Beautifulby Jeanie TinchDesigned to meet the needs of todays homeowners who want to expand their living spaces outdoors, Sunbrella fabrics are among todays most important fabric choices. If youre wanting to take advantage of the great outdoors in your own backyard, utilizing Sunbrella fabrics in your new dcor might just fit the bill! Originally designed and used in awnings and then boating, Sunbrella fabrics have been in existence since 1961. And as todays homeowners began creating additional living spaces outdoors, Sunbrella fabrics began taking on a whole new look. Featuring many fabulous designs, colors, and patterns, youre sure to find a fabric that will fit your new dcor beautifully. And even before green became a prominent force in home decorating products, the manufacturers of Sunbrella fabrics were committed to exceeding industry standards for environmental stewardship. Here are a few ways that Sunbrella fabrics protect air, earth and water, while producing beautiful, highperforming textiles. 1. Sunbrella creates no wastewater from dyeing. Their unique coloring process avoids harmful effluents associated with conventional dyeing processes. 2. Sunbrella fabrics are extremely durable. Believe it or not, their lifespan is two to 10 times longer than conventional fabrics. 3. Sunbrella fabrics offer significant sun protection. Umbrellas, awnings and shades made from Sunbrella fabrics actually aid in the prevention of sun-induced damage to the skin. And not only do you receive a bit of personal protection, but these fabrics will not fade or rot from the harsh rays of the sun. 4. Sunbrella features a soiland stainresistant finish so its very easy to clean. You can spot wash your fabrics by sponging briskly with a solution of natural soap in lukewarm water. Then simply rinse thoroughly with clean water to remove the soap and let the fabric air dry. 5. These solution-dyed yarns do not promote mildew growth. However, mildew may grow on dirt and other foreign substances that are not removed from the fabric. To remove mildew stains, prepare a mild solution of one cup bleach plus two caps full of a natural soap per gallon of water. Spray on entire area, and allow to soak in. Sponge thoroughly with clean water, and let air dry. Youll find this fabulous fabric available for use throughout your home. From decks, patios and poolside to dining rooms, family rooms, and even the kitchen and bath. So if refreshing your outdoor dcor is in your future, why not give this fabulous fabric a look?

35 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 2, 2011PGA TipsPlay Ready Golfby Matt Oakley, PGA Golf ProfessionalThe PGA has done studies and the #1 reason most people leave the game of golf is that it takes too much time. This is an issue to me that we, as golf professionals must address. Not only is it my job to give the people who play the game the best available experience, I am also responsible for bringing new people into the game. One of the best ways to have golf take less time is to practice what we call Ready Golf. Here are some examples and tips. 1. Everyone should be ready to play when it is their turn to hit. Example: Working at the course every day I see two carts with four people in them driving out to one golf ball. One person gets out and that person hits their shot. That person gets back into the cart and the two carts drive to the next ball five yards away and the process is repeated with one person hitting a shot at a time. Ready Golf solution When your cart partner drives to their ball, get up and begin to figure out how far away from the green your ball might be and begin deciding what two or three clubs the yardage may require and start walking towards your ball with your clubs (be sure you do not get in front of the person hitting). That way when it is your turn you are ready to hit. The more information you can gather while other people are hitting the better (wind, uphill/downhill, yardage, etc). 2. Watch every shot hit carefully, not only yours but everyone elses too. This helps if someone in the group is looking for a ball 50 yards from where you know they hit it. You can then guide them as to where to search. Or if it obviously went 20 yards into the water you can tell them they shouldnt bother searching the bank for five minutes looking for it. 3. Unless you are playing in a tournament, hit when ready on the tee. I know the rules of golf say that the person with the lowest score on the last hole hits first on the next tee, but common sense in non-tournament situations tells me that if the guy with the lowest score on the last hole is digging in his bag and you are on the tee ready to go, hit anyway. 4. Leave your cell phone in the clubhouse or at home. If you must take it, put it on vibrate for emergencies. Theres nothing worse than playing golf and the guy you are playing with is trading stocks on the 5th tee when it is his turn to hit. Dont be that guy. 5. Thats not the first golf ball you have ever lost and unfortunately wont be your last. Take a second, look around, get over it and drop one by the rules and move on. I have seen the police search for wanted criminals less than some people will search for a golf ball they just found on the previous hole. 6. Count your strokes as you go and record them on the scorecard on the cart ride to the next tee. Dont you love waiting for the group on the green to clear and when the flag goes into the hole the one guy looks back towards you and starts pointing to places on the course, one, two, three, four, etc. 7. Be a dictator. Bob, I think you are next to putt, then Jim. I have seen congress come to a decision quicker than some groups deciding who is next to putt or hit, and usually with less debate. Pick someone and get on with it. I hope these tips make your next round of golf quicker.

If youve watched many old Westerns, youve doubtless seen Native Americans scalping their enemies. You probably dont realize, though, that the brutal practice didnt originate with the Indians. When the Dutch and English settlers were trying to clear out the natives, they were paid a bounty for each scalp they brought back. The Native Americans adopted the practice only after the Europeans arrival on the continent. The countrys first pizzeria opened in 1895 in, unsurprisingly, New York City. Those who study such things say that 70 percent of Americans have visited either Disneyland, in California, or Disney World, in Florida. If you want to have an especially memorable and chilly vacation, consider heading to Finnish Lapland. There, more than 150 miles north of the Arctic Circle, you can stay at the Kakslauttanen Hotel. The quarters arent luxurious, but the sights are amazing. All the accommodations are geodesic glass igloos, offering amazing views of the aurora borealis. Are you a snollygoster? If so, youre shrewd, which isnt a bad thing, but youre also rather lacking in principles. When Andrew Jackson was running for president in 1828, his opponents called him a stubborn jackass. Jackson was proud that he was known for obstinately sticking to his guns, so he started using the image of a donkey on his campaign materials. The Democrats have been using that symbol ever since.A Haunting Good Readby Di SaggauInheriting a dilapidated antebellum plantation in Georgia wasnt in Summer Woodfields plans. Once she sets her eyes on it she yearns to rush back to Chicago, but in order to claim her monetary inheritance she must live on the plantation for one full year. Those are the instructions of her dearly departed Aunt Ada. Tanglewood Plantation by Jocelyn Miller is a timely addition to historical fiction at the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War. Its a novel that grabs the reader from page one, where Summer has a nightmare about being attacked by a huge alligator named Bruno. The dream proves to be a bad omen. A treasure hunt in the attic results in the discovery of old love letters and after reading them Summer is whisked back to 1861. The Civil War is raging around her and she is no longer the mistress of the manor, but a slave on her own plantation. She knows she is Summer but everyone around her thinks she is Evaline, a beautiful slave once owned by her ancestors. The characters who surround her hold all the answers to her familys past and why the once beautiful bronze fountain in front of the plantation is now a gnarled, twisted and grotesque shape of blackened limbs. Summer experiences what it was like to be a slave girl who is the target of a vengeful mistress. Gone are the luxuries she takes for granted. The memory of the soft bed of the previous night faded into reality as Summer made a futiile attempt to fluff the tired, flat pillow on Evalines lumpy cot. The pillow stubbornly returned to its former state after a brief promise of comfort. One good thing, her belly was full after a hard day of labor. Lucy made sure of it, feeding her the thick soup of peas and ham bits, along with biscuits and jam. She laid her head down, giving a brief thought to bedbugs and lice, but was too weary to care. This was hell, and she was stuck in it. Tanglewood Plantation delivers an objective view of plantation gentry and slave coexistence during the difficult times of emancipation and war in the 19th century. To round out the tale, an unfinished 150-year-old love story rekindles, creating a historical time-travel ghostly mystery and romance. The characters in the book, especially those long dead, jump to life as the reader enters a time warp set during a devastating war. Jocelyn Miller divides her time between the eastern shore of Maryland and Sanibel. Her keen interest in the lives of pre-20th century women has inspired her to write of the adventures and adversities faced and fought by fictional women on the outside fringes of the social circles of their time.

41 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 2, 2011 My great grandmother, who I was very close with growing up (I called her my Bubby) used to have this old cookbook. Worn from years of use, its tattered pages held the recipes that made family meals more than special. Bubby experimented by adding and deleting ingredients, or even changing some. I use schmaltz here instead of butter, Bubby would instruct stirring the rendered chicken fat into a pot, because to use butter isnt kosher and you need to add some flavor. Schmaltz rendered from a chicken or goose (but not pork) is popular in Jewish cuisine, It was used by Northwestern and Eastern European Jews who were forbidden by kosher dietary laws to fry their meats in butter or lard. Even when I was growing up in the 1970s, other kinds of cooking oils that would be kosher, such as olive and sesame oil, were not yet widely used. Bubby wrote the changes to her recipes in the margins of that old book. When she died, that book contained the secrets to her cooking. Without it, there would be no real way to replicate what she made and how she made it. So it was very fortunate that she wrote down her methods, scrawling through and adding her notes to the published recipes which created her own. But scrawling changes on your legal documents normally isnt a good thing. I usually ask new clients who are visiting me in my office to bring with them their current wills and trusts. From time to time Ill see that the original documents have been crossed through, with notes or changes written in the margins much like my Bubby used to in her cookbook. Whats this change? Ill ask. Oh, that? a new client will respond, I decided to change the bequest to my grandchildren from $10,000 to $20,000. Do you realize that this change that you have written into the margin of the document has no legal effect? Ill ask. Really? I had it witnessed! is a typical response. Sometimes the change is more drastic, such as writing out a beneficiary. Other times the margin notes are intended to update the will because a beneficiary has died. Unless the will specifically directs who is supposed to get what in that event, Florida law will dictate who is next in line. Often the law is in conflict with the margin notes. So my first challenge is educating the client that the margin notes have no legal significance. Unless a change to a will or trust is signed with the same formalities and under the same rules as the law directs when signing a new document, the change will be disregarded. Such changes, do, however, often breed litigation between the beneficiaries, some of whom may have an economic interest in the change. In such disputes the result is usually large legal fees to the attorneys representing the parties with the usual result that the handwritten margin notes are negated by a court of law. Its a rare instance when a court upholds any margin notes or changes. So if you happen to have original will or trust documents that youve added your own notes to, you may want to restate the document or have a proper codicil or amendment made that accurately reflects your intent.

I was sent immediately back to camp headquarters and then on to the Louisville General Hospital. Seems I had a severe case of poison ivy. While in the hospital the army wanted to discharge me on medical grounds. In the meantime, my company went overseas without me. The company went to Belgium and set up camp, and soon after, just before sunrise one morning, a German tank opened fire on them with an 88-millimeter canon and 15-millimeter machine guns. Half of my company died while I was sleeping in my hospital bed in Kentucky. This encounter took place just before the beginning of the Battle of the Bulge. After that I surely wasnt ready to go home. I wanted to stay in the army and did everything I could to stay. Cramer stayed in the service and on April 12, 1945, the day President Franklin Roosevelt died, another major event in history was on the horizon. Roosevelt died at 11 p.m. and at 11:30 p.m. one of the worst tornados in our countrys history touched down in Antlers, Oklahoma. Sixty-nine people died and 353 were injured, a third of that town was destroyed and 600 buildings collapsed. And once again, within close proximity, Cramer was attending an army/air force radio mechanic training program at nearby Will Rodgers Field, Oklahoma. He was taking a course on a new gizmo called the facsimile machine in preparation for a select group assignment on an island 50 miles off the coast of Japan where aeronautic reconnaissance information would be sent and relayed to an air force base in Japan. But there was an interrruption. Cramer and his fellow soldiers were called by the commandant officer where they were given assignments to go prepare for rescue missions and clean up after that major tornado. The group was given five portable power units, cans of gasoline, a two-and-a-halfton truck, a radio truck and trailer, and signal equipment. They were then taken to headquarters, where they recorded their name, rank, serial number, other pertinent information, were given a briefing on the tornado, their instructions and personal check for $20. At this point Cramer didnt want to go any further with the story. He said, It was too disturbing and left it at that. It would take too much time to go into the details. The last story was, as Cramer called it, A Jungle Story. His company was assigned to Panama. Their duty was to clear pathways through the jungles of Panama. Cramer said, This was not the jungle portrayed in Hollywood pictures. The brush was so thick you never saw daylight. There were steep hills and valleys, 200-foot trees, and the ground was always slippery. Machetes were used to cut through the brush. The mountain terrain was so dense and steep you had to hold on to one tree while cutting another. Stinging ants and poisonous snakes were everywhere. Cramer found that out for himself, with his machete in hand cutting and clearing through the brush along with his fellow troops and guide. As he took action to bring his machete down on a tree, he felt the dull side of his guides machete come down on his arm. His reaction was to withdraw his machete only to realize that the guides action had prevented him from being attacked by a huge poisonous jungle snake.

43 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 2, 2011School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPHello Readers, Here is the third and last column on resiliency. Now that we have a basic foundation in this topic, lets discuss the characteristics of children who are resilient. Who are these kids and what do they do differently? Here is what the research from the Resilient Schools Program says. Social competence Resilient children tend to be responsive, have good social skills, are capable of initiating and sustaining close relationships with adults and peers, and are able to show appropriate empathy. They have good communication and conflict resolution skills, and an appropriate sense of humor. The basic elements of social competence include: Basic interaction skills (e.g., smiling, making eye contact, listening) Entry/approach skills (how to approach an individual socially or join a group) Maintenance skills (e.g., how to share, take turns, follow rules, co-operate etc.) Friendship skills (e.g., involve others in decision making, be inclusive, etc.) Conflict resolution Empathy Communication of needs and ideas Sense of humor Assertiveness (how to say no and stand up for oneself, etc.) Problem-solving skills The ability for effective problem solving is essential for resiliency. The resilient child is generally able to think creatively, flexibly and skillfully in dealing with problems. They are able to ask adults for help when needed. Starting at about age 11 or 12, when children begin to think abstractly, is a good time to teach them a general problem-solving model, although with guidance, younger children can be taught the initial problem identification. Here is a basic problem-solving model: Identify the problem Brainstorm solutions Evaluate potential solutions, choose the best solution, and put it into action. Evaluate the outcome. If it does not solve the problem, repeat the process. Autonomy A degree of autonomy is essential for the development of good problem-solving skills. If children do not have a sense of their own independence, they will continually rely on adults around them to solve their problems, and they will not develop their own problem-solving skills. Parents can promote childrens autonomy by: Encouraging them to take on ageappropriate responsibilities at home such as caring for a pet. Assisting them to think of their own solutions to problems rather than stepping in and solving the problem for them. Teaching children that it is okay to make mistakes and fail. Encouraging them to make their own choices when appropriate rather than choosing for them. Optimism In regard to resiliency, optimism refers to a sense of a positive future, a tendency to find positive meaning in experiences, and a belief in ones ability to impact positively on ones environment. Some children tend to be naturally optimistic and persistent in the face of obstacles. Others are more sensitive to setbacks and inclined to taking things poorly. However, optimism is a learnable skill. Children can learn optimism by observing people around them, such as parents, or by learning how to be optimistic as a skill that can be taught to them. Clearly as parents there is much that you can do to help your children become resilient. Teaching and modeling for them good social and problem-solving skills, encouraging autonomy and demonstrating an optimistic outlook will go a long way in developing resiliency in your children.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 2, 201144 NASA Space Shuttle Tile On Display At Edison State Charlotte CampusThe National Aeronautics and Space Administration has cast a historical footprint on the world like few others, and now a piece of that legacy is on display at Edison State College Charlotte Campus. Edison State was among the educational institutions selected this summer to take part in NASAs Space Shuttle Tiles for Teachers program. The thermal protection tile is on display for the public within the Vernon Peeples Learning Resources Center located on the Charlotte campus. This is a fantastic opportunity for all of Charlotte County and Edison State to be a part of preserving a unique piece of history, Charlotte Campus President Dr. Patricia Land said. I think the shuttle tile is fascinating and a great source of inspiration. Edison discovered the opportunity through Web Services Manager and Punta Gorda resident Mark Savage, a selfproclaimed NASA enthusiast. Savage discovered the Tiles for Teachers program while browsing the NASA artifact webpage, informed Dr. Land of the opportunity and registered the Charlotte campus with only $23.40 needed for shipping and handling. Dr. Richard D. Yarger oversaw the project once Edison State had officially been selected. The former Charlotte Campus Provost arranged for a display within the library that includes an informational poster and hands-on exercise. Perhaps the most intriguing element of the tile is its weight of 5.65 ounces, and the fact it can withstand temperatures from minus 250 degress Fahrenheit in space and 3,000 Fahrenheit during reentry. Each of these tiles is like a puzzle piece that has a specific size. They fit together perfectly like a skin to protect the shuttle, Yarger said. This one only weighs about 5 ounces you could literally hold the tile in your hand, put a blowtorch to it and you would be fine. For more information on viewing times or to arrange a group tour, contact the Charlotte campus library at 941-637-5620.

Citrus Teriyaki Florida Mullet Seafood Lovers Can Learn, Have Fun At New EventA passionate educator with a love for marine biology, Rozalind Jester has delivered Southwest Floridas latest cant miss event Ocean Commotion. The September 10 festival is designed to celebrate the local seafood industry and stimulate the economy through heightened awareness. The second installment, hosted by Edison State College, is free to the public and promises a fun environment the entire family will enjoy from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the terrace at Taeni Hall (Building S, Edison State College, 8099 College Parkway). My vision is to see it grow into an annual event that inspires our community to make healthy, sustainable choices, both for themselves and our ocean, said Jester, an oceanography professor at Edison State. Ocean Commotion offers something for all with music, games, educational booths, guest speakers and a variety of food options. Many of the games and activities, like free face painting, are sponsored by Edison States Office of Student Life and Phi Theta Kappa. Educational booths range from live marine touch tanks from the Imaginarium to the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliarys remote control boat Coastie, which displays safe boating practices, and displays on sustainable aquaculture. The event also features a raffle to win a two-night stay at the Outrigger Beach Resort on Fort Myers Beach sponsored by Lee County Seafood Savvy Coalition. The Timbers Restaurant and Fish Market also will be preparing samples of Motes sustainable farmed sturgeon. My hope is to bring awareness to marine environment issues that affect the health of fisheries in a way that is fun and enjoyable for the whole family, Jester said. I want to teach people how to identify which types of seafood are the best to choose when at a restaurant or market; ones that are fished or farmed in environmentally friendly ways. Jester earned her doctorate in Ocean Science from the University of California, Santa Cruz. The focus of her doctoral research was on the food-web ecology of toxic algae, specifically the organisms responsible for paralytic shellfish poisoning along the west coast of North America and elsewhere. Among the activities at Ocean Commotion will be exhibits emphasizing the best practices to protect marine animals and vital habitats from groups like Ostego Bay Foundation, Keep Lee County Beautiful, Turtle Time Inc. and Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 2, 201148 Edison & Ford Antique Cars On ExhibitThe Edison & Ford Winter Estates is exhibiting a 1919 Ford Model T at the newly completed general aviation terminal at Page Field in Fort Myers. The 1919 Ford Model T will be on exhibit until October, when it will be replaced by a 1937 Ford Coupe. Page Field has a rich history in the region and was used for both air travel and training. In 1926 Thomas Edison inspected two planes at Page Field (then known as Fort Myers Airport) the Miss Tampa and Miss Miami. Henry Ford made major contributions to aviation with The Ford Aircraft Division building passinger planes in 1929 that were known as the Tin Goose that consisited of three large air-cooled engines. By the latter part of the 1920s Ford became the first private carrier to have domestic airmail flights and was the worlds largest producer of commercial airplanes. Ford, with the help of Charles Lindbergh, helped usher in a new era for aviation travel as numbers grew from approximately 2,000 passengers in the mid 1920s to over 400,000 passengers by the early 1930s. The Smithsonian Institute called the innovative concrete runways Fords most important contribution to aviation. Ford is in the National Aviation Hall of Fame in Dayton, Ohio. The 1919 Ford Model T on display at Page Field is a standard three-door touring model that sold for $525 and was powered by a 20 horsepower, fourcylinder cast iron engine. It could reach a maximum speed of around 45 mph and had a 10-gallon gas tank that averaged 14 to 21 miles per gallon. Electric starters became an optional feature for the first time in 1919 and cost an extra $75 to install. As a result, Ford began producing instrument panels equipped with an ammeter and ignition switch. In October the estates will replace the Model T with a 1937 Ford Coupe which is more representative of the history of activity at Page Field. The coupe was donated by Louis Furen Jr. to the estates museum in August 2004. Considered a full-size automobile, the two-door coupe featured a 221 CID 3.6 L flathead V-8 engine with 85 hp (three speed manual). The color is Dearborn Blue and the original cost would have been around $850. The 1937 model consisted of a more rounded look, side hood grill, and had a distinctive V-shaped front grill that differed from its predecessors of the early 1930s. Headlights were built into the frame which also differed from its predecessors. It also featured a trunk. Currently the car is under restoration by South Fort Myers High School automotive students. Edison, considered one of the areas first tourists, arrived by boat to Punta Rassa in 1885. He purchased property along the Caloosahatchee and built his winter residence, Seminole Lodge in Fort Myers. Henry Ford purchased his home in 1916 and together they would explore Florida in Ford automobiles, of course.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 2, 201150 Local Jeweler Will Bring Sanibel Feel To Fort MyersBy Emilie AlfinoThe papers have been signed and its official: Lily & Co. will soon be bringing its special Sanibel ambience to Christines Jewelry by Design in Fort Myers, which closed Wednesday, August 31. In a letter to her employees, she cited her family as the main reason for her decision, wanting to be a stay-at-home mom and enjoy time with her two girls while theyre still little. Lily & Co. takes ownership possession September 1. A soft opening is planned for October 1, with a grand opening to follow in full Lily style the weekend after Thanksgiving. Traditional designer Charles Krypell will be at that event to help open the new store. Not only has this been an opportunity for Lily & Co. to get a new store but to take over a very successful business and carry on the tradition of excellence Christines Jewelry by Design has established, but under the Lily & Co. name, said co-owner Dan Schuyler. Christine and her father Tom Louwers (a tax consultant and accountant serving Sanibel and Captiva since 1978) considered no other jewelry store when they decided to sell just Lily & Co., Schuyler said. The fact that they thought highly enough of Lily & Co. for us to take over their operation because we do it in a family manner and that Christine felt good enough to turn it over to Karen Bell and me because of the way we operate made us feel very special, said Schuyler. Schuyler said he and Bell are going to make some changes. The Louwers family want us to make it look like Sanibel, so Karen and I will start September 1 to bring the Sanibel tradition of Old Florida into the Fort Myers store. Part of that will be landscaping the front beautifully, said Schuyler. Leah Manziano will be the manager of the new store. She brings an incredible jewelry background, Schuyler explained. She started in the jewelry industry in New Jersey with Tiffany & Co. For the past 2-1/2 years she has managed the jewelry department at Sax Fifth Avenue at Waterside Shops. Schuyler brought her on board her at Lily & Co. and trained her personally. She has a wealth of product knowledge and managerial experience, he added. She has opened two high-end jewelry stores in the past 10 years. We feel confident and honored to have her. Were excited to meet the people of Fort Myers and to bring Lily & Co. to their neighborhood, which I think is going to be a totally different genre than what theyve had before, said Manziano. Were totally going to be setting ourselves apart from the rest. Bringing island atmosphere is going to be a big asset to the Fort Myers area. Schuyler said either he or partner Bell will be in the store daily. One of the features of the Fort Myers store is a glassenclosed fullservice jewelry repair shop that handles restoration and custom work. The resident goldsmith is Robby Dowdy, one of the original partners and a family member of Fishell & Dowdy, a Fort Myers institution in the jewelry repair business for many years. Lily & Co. will continue that tradition of being a full-service jeweler, as Christines Jewelry by Design has been, when it opens the Fort Myers store, handling watch repair, jewelry repair, pearl restringing, metal and glass engraving, flatware restoration, corporate gifts, appraisals, and of course the traditional gold buys and purchase of large diamonds and Swiss timepieces such as Rolex and Breitling. The Lily & Co. gallery will be heading to Fort Myers as well, including wall art, table art and wearable art. We specialize in one-of-a-kind custom designer pieces, both local and from all over the world, and we plan on carrying that tradition into the Fort Myers location, Schuyler said. Another tradition that will expand to Fort Myers are the now famous Lily & Co. events. People love them, and we will carry them to the new store to coincide with the events at Sanibel, said Schuyler. We will be involved with the nonprofits, helping them raise money for their organizations, which is another Lily tradition. Were not a cookie cutter jewelry store; rather, were going to be a neighborhood gallery. We will carry every price range. Were extremely happy and pleased to have this opportunity and we thank Christine and Tom for allowing us to take over their family business, Schuyler added. Its a great opportunity for us to carry on the tradition and it has worked out really well. I also thank the community of Sanibel and Captiva for helping us to expand in such a short time since we opened just five years ago. Will the dog-loving owners be getting three more canines for the Fort Myers store? Weve talked about it, Schuyler said. Gracie and Angel are our official greeters and Lily has been the queen, the Diva Dog. Well have to see. The new store is located at 13550 Reflections Parkway, Suite 2201, Fort Myers 33907; phone 466-4949.

51 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 2, 2011Treasure Found In New YorkSanibel restaurateur and chef AJ Black, owner of Il Tesoro on Tarpon Bay Road, will open his New York restaurant by the same name this month. Il Tesoro Ristorante & Bar is in the space of the former Primavera Ristorante at the corner of First Avenue and 82nd Street in the Upper East Side. Tesoro is Italian for treasure. The upcoming opening was reported in the New York Times recently. The article notes that Black, who grew up in the restaurant business in Rome and trained at the Italian Culinary Institute, also owns Il Tesoro Ristorante on Sanibel Island and Il Tesoro at the Terrace on Marthas Vineyard. He previously owned Villa Pazzo in New Yorks West Village, on Bleeker Street. The 2,000-square-foot dining room has 65 seats, while a private dining/tasting room seats 35 in the 1,500-squarefoot wine cellar, styled like a private Tuscan home, according to the New York Times. His artist-wife Jolie has created the restaurants frescoes. The design will also include a marble bar, woodwork and Venetian plastered walls. Black is reported as saying, We kept the authenticity of the place, but restored the wood and original paintings, and put in an updated kitchen, new ceilings and air conditioning. We made it our own without spoiling the original beauty, refined it to modern sophistication. Realtor Joins FirmDoris Trowbridge has joined John Gee and Company, Realtors as a sales associate.

Going Green Can Be EasyGoing green is as easy as turning off lights you arent using, adjusting the thermostat, using public transportation, and buying local products. These are some of the easy actions highlighted on Go Green Forever commemorative stamps, the U.S. Postal Services featured social awareness stamps for 2011. The stamps are on sale and cost $7.04 for the pane of 16 stamps. USPS is doing its part as the only mailing and shipping company in the world with packaging, stamped cards, and stamped envelopes that must meet standards for human health, environmental health, and recyclability and so do stamps, including the new Go Green stamps. Playful but purposeful, the Go Green stamps suggest simple things everyone can do to make the environment healthier. Many of these tips, such as turning out lights when leaving a room, are things people are probably already doing. Others require a bit more commitment. But no matter what you choose to do, its amazing how taking a few small steps can add up to big savings in energy, resources, and costs. These days, Americans are learning that their actions, both individually and collectively, affect the very air we breathe. USPS could have shown big concepts such as wind power or solar power but preferred to send the message that each person can take small, everyday steps to make the world a greener place. Kidfriendly, environmental messages were developed for the Go Green stamps. A Go Green Family Activity Kit offers simple and fun tips for making the world a cleaner place. It will provide hours of educational entertainment for kids and families. The kit includes 16 Go Green Forever stamps, a large colorful poster with Go Green ideas, a pad of 15 fold and mail stationery items, and access to online games. The cost is $16.95. Learn more about the kit at www.stamproducts. com/gogreen. Mr. Zips Tip: The mailing industry accounts for more than 8 million jobs and $1 trillion in revenue.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 2, 201152 Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum Cowry Exhibit Set To OpenBy the time you read this, the Bailey-Matthews Shell Museums newest exhibit will likely be up and running! A crew arrived on August 30 to begin installing the much-anticipated cowry shell exhibit, which will include, of course, cowries, videos and artifacts, and also text detailing the biology, classification, collectability, diversity, cultural history and impact of this shell. Not only are cowries popular with collectors for their beauty and symmetry, they have been pervasive as currency, clothing and decorative pieces in tropical and subtropical areas around the world. The exhibit was underwritten by part-time Sanibel residents Richard and Jean Rompala, and a dedication ceremony to thank them for their contribution and to celebrate the museums newest display will take place later this year. Museum Director Dr. Jos H. Leal is happy to see this day finally come. This exhibit will bring the museum literally into the future with the interactive videos we have on living cowries covering all aspects related to this great group of shells, he said. Mental Health Expert To SpeakAward-winning journalist and nationally known mental health advocate Pete Earley will be in Fort Myers Friday, October 7, to discuss the need for mental health reform at a luncheon hosted by Hope Clubhouse of Southwest Florida. The presentation in observance of Mental Health Awareness Week will be at the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre, 1380 Colonial Boulevard in Fort Myers at noon. The Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre and Stephen Prendiville, MD, of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery were the major sponsors at press time. Earley, who is the author of 13 books, also will be available for book-signing immediately after his presentation. We are very honored that Pete Earley has agreed to join us for our first annual luncheon in recognition of Mental Health Awareness Week, said Hope Clubhouse executive director Debra Webb. Because of his expertise, he has been asked twice to testify before the U.S. Congress about the need for mental health reform and has given lectures throughout the world. Earley is best known as the author of CRAZY: A Fathers Search Through Americas Mental Health Madness, which was one of two finalists for the 2007 Pulitzer Prize. His book tells two stories. The first is his struggle to get his son help after he develops a severe mental illness. The second story is based on nine months that Earley spent inside the Miami Dade County jail where he followed persons with mental disorders through the criminal justice system and out into the streets to see what happened to them. His book has won awards from the American Psychiatric Association, National Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health America. A former reporter for The Washington Post, Earley is the author of nine nonfiction books and three novels.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 2, 201154 deaRPharmacistPrepare Yourself For Emergenciesby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: I just dealt with the ramifications of the earthquake in Virginia and now a hurricane is barreling towards us. What tips can you offer? TR, Richmond, Virginia Answer: Great question. Depending on where we live, we might face earthquakes, tornadoes, power outages, flash floods, fires or hurricanes. Climaterelated disasters give us little or no time to think about our medications, because we are focused on protecting our family, the property and staying safe. The following tips should help with your emergency preparedness: Have a written list of all your medications that includes dosage, directions, your local pharmacy and physician and their phone numbers. Include both the generic and brand names. Pharmacies can actually print you a comprehensive list, but make sure its current. You want to be able to grab your medications and dietary supplements, and go! I suggest you buy a toiletry or make-up bag today, and store a 10-day supply of medications in it. Make sure your name is in it. Only take important medicines, like those used for epilepsy, blood pressure, pain, heartbeat rhythm, asthma, migraines, diabetes, and so forth. Keep the drugs in their original pharmacy container. Rescuers and relief team members may dispense your medications to you, so it must be correctly labeled. Include a water bottle so you can take your medicine when needed, a flashlight and a spare set of eyeglasses. A little first aid kit would be wise to have. If you take refrigerated medications like insulin, then you have two options. Option one is to buy a little ice pack and keep it frozen, preferably in a sealed baggie. That way, when the power goes out, grab the ice pack from your freezer, drop it in that toiletry or tote bag, and go. Option two is to purchase a ready-made cooling case, usually sold in the diabetes section of your pharmacy and online. This stores insulin, and some might fit antibiotic suspensions, suppositories, growth hormone or epoetin (Procrit, Epogen). Two popular cooling cases are made by Frio and Medicool. These are great for regular travel too. If you live in a region where fires are common, keep a 10-day supply of medications in a fire-safe box. Its not a bad idea for anyone to do this. I did a quick search on the Internet and found two companies, Sentry and First Alert, that sell boxes which are both fire-safe and waterproof. Another consideration is to purchase a little plastic waterproof container. Look in the boating section of your sporting goods store. If you are prone to floods, or live in a hurricane zone, water purification tablets arent a bad idea. They use chlorine dioxide to destroy microorganisms within 15 minutes, killing giardia, cryptosporidium and other pathogens. Hikers and campers often carry these. One popular brand is Katadyn Micropur tablets. These tablets are usually available at places like REI sporting goods stores and online.

A mother and daughter team, Lizzie is a retired RN and health educator, and Pryce is a licensed psychotherapist in private practice who specializes in the care of elders and people with chronic illnesses. Dear Mom & Me, I am in my late sixties, widowed for five years and living in the same house for the last 45 years. I thought I was managing well, but I started to have severe allergy problems and my doctor suggested I have the house inspected for molds. I contacted a local man who frequently does home inspections. He told me I had a terrible problem. My house was full of termites and mold in addition to many other structural problems. He estimated to correct my problems it would cost me $40,000. I was inconsolable. A friend suggested I contact the best company with the highest credentials. After their inspection, they told me that I have no termites, no structural damage but a bad case of mold and it would cost $3,000 to repair. They also told me that the house inspector was just taking advantage of an elderly widow. I had the problem corrected and my sniffling and headaches are almost all gone. Just passing my experiences on. Louise Dear Louise, There is little doubt that the elderly can be victims of fast-talking thugs. The economy being what it is will encourage more criminal activity and people who will do anything to get extra cash for their own use. Many times it is far more economical, in the long run, to contact the most qualified and then go from there to decide the best plan of action. Lizzie Dear Louise, There are many people offering honest work and unfortunately just as many people looking for ways to take advantage of others. Individuals of all sizes, age and education can be hoodwinked, thus the adage, Let the buyer beware. Keeping informed, trusting your intuition, and pursuing multiple options are your best strategies. I am glad that your sniffles are gone, and thank you for sharing your experiences so that others may stay informed. Pryce Lizzie and Pryces email address is Got A Problem? Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: I have been in a relationship for a little over a year. I feel that my boyfriend and I have fallen into a rather mundane routine. It is as though we take each other for granted. Do you have any suggestions for revving up the relationship and adding some spark again?A: It sounds as though some dullness has crept into your lives before you even knew it. Love and relationships even with the best of intentions can wither with too much predictability. If you and your partner could get a serendipitous event into your routine such as a surprise of some sort dining out, weekend getaway, little unexpected gift then perhaps you could shake up the habitual rather boring relationship you are describing. You both need to be willing to be risk-taking enough to step into unfamiliar paths that excite and renew. You could begin by writing a magical mystery tour note describing something new and fun you two are about to embark on and leaving it somewhere your partner will see it. It could be as simple as a place to meet after work and you taking him to a new and exciting restaurant for dinner. A little spontaneity in your life will only make for a break in the old routine and new excitement for both of you. Dr. Clancy is a licensed mental health therapist, certified hypnotherapist, life coach, author and public speaker. You may email Dr. Connie at Our email address is


55 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 2, 2011Dr. DaveBody Scanningby Dr. Dave HepburnBeing a Wisequack means making wisecracks at every opportunity where doing so fulfills some innate need in my soul to prevent me from ever truly maturing. I remain in the chrysalis phase of life and doubt I will ever really metamorphosize into the butterfly or a seersucker munching moth that I should be. Fellow Wisequack Rob Sealey is frankly, well... larval. And so it was that traveling back from Phoenix, I couldnt resist myself while standing in a full body scanner at airport security with my arms in the air looking like I got my shoulder joints stuck halfway though performing the crowd wave at my sons hockey game. I turned to the TSA security gal and winked, I feel like I need a smoke. Was it good for you? But my wife thought that this was pretty lame repartee for me. What you should have said, dear, she suggested is, Ummm listen, I was just swimming... Babe, thats a great line!! Thats absolutely hilari... wait a second! the Arctic Ocean. Gone through the full body scanner yet? The technique usually involves FM radio waves which, if tuned properly should be playing Barrys White and Manilow, given the intimate experience that awaits. For those who prefer not to go through these scanners, you can opt, as Sealey does, for a pat down. In fact, I heard him once ask for a cavity search believing he could get a cheap dental check up. Should have seen the size of his pupils after his check up, as they checked up everything except my friggin teeth. But taking a good look inside our bodies is a huge part of everyday medicine and as technology reveals new technological technologies, diagnostic imaging has improved dramatically. One of the brightest new lights is the PET scan, more commonly known as positron emission tomography. Getting all the details from the pet shop boys, I am told that PET scans are extremely sensitive scans that allows doctors to see how organs function rather than simply looking at a fuzzy still image of them. Its like the difference between snapping a still photo of, say a parliamentary debate or actually watching a 3D video of assorted vegetables, clothing accessories, pagers, pages being hurled across those esteemed seats of government. PET scans like to look at the metabolically active areas of our body that use a lot of energy ie. sugar that comes from our diet, our tissues and of course our lovely Snickers Bar organ. Currently, PET scans are most commonly dealing with detecting and assessing treatment of cancer. When a cancer occurs in our body, the nasty cancer cells are very metabolically active as they multiply like an Osmond family in the spring. Because those cells are so active, they suck up a lot of sugar, virtually stealing it from the rest of the body and literally starving out our pleasant normal cells. This starvation is why the symptom of unexplained weight loss may be an indication that there is an active cancer. PET scans actually show us where there is this increased metabolic activity in our body. If it locates an area of high metabolic activity then there could well be a cancer present. If during cancer treatment, a PET scan shows no decrease in that metabolic activity, then that particular treatment regime may not be working so well. Besides the cancer world, PET scans are also very useful in detecting heart problems (such as coronary artery disease and damage to the heart following a heart attack), brain disorders (including brain tumors, memory disorders, seizures) and other central nervous system disorders. But should, one day, you decide to get a PET scan, or a body scan of any type... dont go swimming first. Like the column?

Nautical Triviaby Bryan HenryDuring his four voyages to the Caribbean region over a 10-year period, Columbus went through 30 ships. Look in your pocket for some American maritime history. The state quarter of Virginia depicts three 17th century sailing ships, the Discovery, Susan Constant, and Godspeed, which brought the first English settlers to Jamestown in 1607. The flag of New Hampshire depicts the frigate Raleigh, which was one of the first 13 vessels ordered for the American Navy, and was built in Portsmouth in 1776, the year New Hampshire achieved independence. The flag of Maine depicts a sailor resting on an anchor. The flag of the Pitcairn Islands depicts the anchor from the ill-fated HMS Bounty. That was the resting place of the Bounty, as it was set fire and sunk there. Pitcairn Island, incidentally, was discovered in 1767 by the British explorer Philip Carteret, who named it after his midshipman. Amerigo Vespucci helped outfit Columbus ships for his second voyage to the Americas.
