The interactive display was unveiled September 3, and a dedication ceremony will take place later this year. The exhibit includes dozens of cowries, videos and artifacts, and also text detailing the biology, classification, collectability, diversity, cultural history and impact of the mollusk. Colorful clips of live cowries allow you to see them in action underwater in the Marshall Islands. Cowries have always been treasured by collectors because of their glossy beauty and sleek symmetry. They also have served utilitarian purposes such as currency, clothing and decorative pieces in tropical and subtropical areas around the world. This exhibit intends to encompass all aspects of the cowry, and shell museum Director Dr. Jos Leal is pleased with the final result. It is a big exhibit, he said. It has a lot of information and Im just excited anticipating the reaction of visitors, the contineud on page 6 The new shell museum cowry exhibit is three-sided and includes an interactive display Museum visitor Karen Bynoe checks out the cowry exhibits interactive video Shell Museum Director Dr. Jos Leal describes the new cowry exhibit to museum Public Programs Specialist Diane Thomas, center, and Assistant Director Amanda StirnWant To Learn More About Florida Crackers?Save the date: Friday, November 4, at 6: 30 p.m. for the 3rd annual San-Cap Cracker Fest.

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 Mondays, September 12, 19 and 26. Once training has been successfully completed, junior docents may lead live tank demonstrations and assist museum visitors in the Great Hall from October through April. Past junior docents have helped as summer camp counselors, made Fourth of July floats, and staffed museum booths during Ding Darling Days. (A refresher course for seventh and eighth graders will be held at the same time on Mondays, 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, they more they can help museum visitors better understand and appreciate mollusks, their habitats, reproduction, travel and locomotion, protection and survival, and feeding.

Leal noted that this newest display is one more attraction added to the museum in a string of exhibits and programs, and I think it shows to everyone in the community there is always change, the museums a dynamic place and well keep doing it that way. It shows the audience something new and that theres always a reason to come back. Karen Bynoe of Fort Myers Beach has the distinction of being the first museum visitor to experience the new exhibit. I think its awesome, she said as she examined the interactive display. I think its so interesting how they have it set up, and the lighting and the descriptions, and then you press a button and it can actually come to life for you. Its really nice. According to Leal, there is already another shell exhibit addition planned for next spring. The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum is located at 3075 Sanibel-Captiva Road, Sanibel. Hours are 9 a.m.5 p.m. daily. Phone: 395-2233; web: Back To School Bash At SCCThe school year started off with a BASH at Sanibel Community Church on August 24.

Before that, during the Pliocene and Pleistocene eras it was at times a shallow bay of what is now the Gulf of Mexico.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 9, 20118 Sanibel-Captiva To Send Care Packages To Troops In Harms WayOn 9/11 our nation will pause to remember the evil murders of almost 3,000 innocent people at the World Trade Centers Twin Towers, The Pentagon, and in Pennsylvania, and to laud the heroism of the first responders, ordinary citizens, and the passengers of United Airlines Flight 93 who gave their lives heroically and prevented a strike against our president, our government and our White House on that fateful day. The prayers, the memories, the tears that will be shed, the speeches and the sound of the bells being tolled for the victims and the heroes who died that day, will be remembered, and then on 9-12-2011 the nation will go on, as it must, but never forget the significance of that never-to-be-forgotten day. While the nation turns to business as usual, kids returning to school, families making preparations for upcoming Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Hanukkah holidays, 10 long years later, our military men and women, volunteers all, are still fighting those people who attacked us. Many (more than were murdered on 9/11) have died in service to our country, and most of our volunteer military in harms way are fighting to protect us under conditions so severe that courts in the United States of America have ruled they are too severe for convicted, jailed criminals. Yes, convicted criminals in the U.S. have better living conditions and more amenities than our military who are fighting for us in harms way. Across this nation groups of people are working to do what they can to better conditions for the hundreds of thousands of military who are protecting us. On Sanibel and Captiva, former military personnel, local businessmen and women, members of local churches, local civic associations, and just plain citizens, visitors, and friends of the area, as well as students are banded together to send care packages to as many local military personnel as possible. They are asking for your help in getting as many packages sent as possible. The San-Cap Campaign, which starts on September 11 and ends on Veterans Day, November 11, has the full support of the Island Sun and River Weekly newspapers and the Bank of the Islands to promote the campaign, and to accept and safeguard the contributions. By the way, people of Lee County wherever they may live are encouraged and welcome to donate also. This year, the San-Cap Campaign working with Lee Memorial Health System Military Support Unit (LMHS Mil-Sup) a 501(c)3 charitable organization, which has the personnel, expertise and ability to package and ship the care packages directly to the troops, will accept checks made payable to LMHS Mil-Sup mailed or delivered to Bank of The Islands, 1699 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel, FL 33957. A well-known and civic minded member of the San-Cap Campaign has arranged for LMHS Mil-Sup to purchase the items to be shipped at an approximate 15 percent savings of state and local taxes, retail and wholesale profit, which means that the troops get more bang for your bucks. Note: When you donate checks you will be mailed a donor statement which you can use when you file your taxes. (Please use the form below, as it makes our job easier) Friends, it is now all up to you. The need is great. Please help our troops. Thank you!

The Right To Vote: The Struggle Of The Suffragettes For 133 years, American women did not have the right to vote in national elections. Iron Jawed Angels, a sexy exuberant tour de force film will be screened at the Thursday, September l5 meeting of the Democratic Club of the Islands on Sanibel. Taking a fresh and contemporary look at a pivotal event in American history, this film tells the true story of how defiant and brilliant young activists, played by Hillary Swank and Lucy Burns, took the womens suffrage movement by storm, putting their lives at risk to help American women win the right to vote. The fight for womens voting rights has rarely been given as dramatic a treatment as in Iron Jawed Angels. This isnt a nice little story of sweet suffragettes marching down Pennsylvania Avenue. Swank has a steamy moment in a bathtub, and the editing is jagged and flashy. The mounting energy of the fight and the increasingly nasty opposition gains real momentum when a wartime picket line leads to Paul, Burns and their sistersin-arms being arrested on trumped-up charges and imprisoned. The actors, including Julia Ormond and Angelica Huston, give fervent, determined performances in this rambunctious and intense HBO film. Firing up an effusive contemporary pop score, a sweeping restless camera and a vibrant palette match the suffragettes radiant dynamism as formidable testimony to the sacrifices and blood shed for womens enfranchisement. Iron Jawed Angels may just embarrass people into actually going to the polls. All Island Democrats and friends are invited to attend the free showing on Thursday, September l6 at 6:30 p.m. at the Sanibel Public Library, 770 Dunlop Road. Popcorn and drinks will accompany the film. Stay for a discussion about this epic struggle. Email at or call 3959078. A First Time Event At Current EventsCurrent Events welcomed its youngest visitor on Monday when Sandy and Albert Hann, along with their son Albert and daughter-in-law Nancy, brought their 36-day-old granddaughter, MacKenzie Alexandra, to the meeting. MacKenzie was completely unfazed with the various opinions offered by members relating to the latest headlines. Current Events meets from 10 a.m. to noon every Monday at BIG ARTS.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 9, 201114 Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellIt seemed like education was the topic of our Rotary meeting last Friday morning. The meeting basically started with a meet-and-greet for one of our Rotary scholarship recipients. We welcomed our 2011 Dick Aldrich Scholarship award recipient Veronica Valencia. First off you have to give Valencia and her friend Tammy due respect for getting up at 4 a.m. Friday to attend the meeting. You have to understand, no self-respecting young women would attend anything of any kind without their hair and makeup done. The girls looked great but that was not what made these two standouts; they are scholars. Valencia was born in Columbia and only came to the states when she was 12 years old; since then she has been determined to take advantage of the American educational system, study hard and go to college. She now is in her sophomore year at the University of South Florida in Tampa. The Rotary Dick Aldrich Scholarship will help Valencia accomplish her goal of becoming a Pediatric Reconstructive Surgeon. It was also on Friday that club President Joel Ospa announced the date for this years Rotary District #6960 Dictionary Day, October 7. The reason for the District Dictionary project is to honor Rotary Internationals commitment to encouraging the full potential of literacy around the globe. To be literate, no matter what the language, is the foundation of education. The ability to read and write opens the doors to cultural and educational experiences beyond ones own personal knowledge and challenges and stretches individuals to grow and think. On October 7 the Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club will deliver to every thirdgrade student at Sanibel School and Fort Myers Beach Elementary their own paperback copy of the Rotary Student Dictionary. Our Rotary District is preparing to deliver thousands of dictionaries to third-grade students in Collier, Lee, Hendry, Charlotte, Glades, Sarasota, Desoto and Manatee counties. Staying with the educational theme, we welcomed Connie Martin, the new director of development of Brightest Horizons Child Development Center on Gladiolus Drive, Fort Myers as our guest speaker for the morning. Martin came to reveal the creation of a $2.5 million fundraising capital campaign to support the building of a new Brightest Horizons Child Care Development Center including after-school programming. This facility will be constructed on the campus of the new Harlem Heights Cultural Center. The campus will then provide a cohesive site for both educational and cultural experiences serving the community of Harlem Heights. Since 1974, Brightest Horizons Child Development Center has been located in the familiar road-front blue buildings on Gladiolus Drive midway between McGregor Boulevard and Winkler within the Harlem Heights Community. Their child development program is nationally accredited through APPLE (Accredited Professional Preschool Learning Environment) and has been awarded the Gold Seal of Excellence by the state of Florida. Their programs provide a secure and enriching environment that serves a diverse population of low-income working families with a small budget of $375,000. All families pay a fee based on family size and income. The sliding scale is provided by the Coalition for Early Learning. Approximately half of our students are funded through Floridas Child Care Partnership Program, which matches funds donated to Brightest Horizons. Less than half of the other children are funded through the state with federal/state subsidy. They also serve the children of families who fall outside any of the above criteria, so we must raise full scholarships to help them maintain their self-sufficiency and independence. The center currently is serving 163 children from four weeks to 12 years of age with a wait-list for the child development program. Although government funding is being cut, the need for services is growing, especially for low-income families. Raising funds to continue the operation of Brightest Horizons is a continuing effort and specifically the new determination to raise funding for the relocation and building of a new educational facility for Brightest Horizons on the Harlem Heights Cultural Center is a daunting task. Martin is an experienced fundraiser and although the goal is high, she is resolute in reaching this goal for the Harlem Heights Community. You can reach her at Brightest Horizons for more information at 481-2100. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets at 7 a.m. every Friday at Beachveiw Steakhouse & Tavern, 1100 Par View Drive.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 9, 201116 by Capt. Matt MitchellAfter a 14-month total rebuild, let me tell everyone how excited I am that my new guide boat will finally be hitting the water. As a full time fishing guide, my boat is the single most important tool I use to catch fish day in and day out. I spend thousands of hours a year out on my boat and it simply becomes part of you. A few years ago I had started looking for a new, bigger guide boat. There are just too many rough days I fish in a year that my clients and I get beaten up on my 17-foot Actioncraft flats boat. Also over the last four or five years my fishing clientele has changed with lots more of my trips requiring a boat that can take four anglers. During the last three years I have had the use of a custom built 26-foot tower boat. After spending so much time up on a tower and having the ability to do some nearshore fishing as well, I knew I had to have a bigger boat. and it had to have a tower. I had lots of other requirements that I needed in my new boat. One of the most important being that after running a shallow draft flats boat for years I did not want to give up fishing a lot of my favorite places that required crossing very shallow areas to access them. I also needed a boat that was economical to run and could carry tons of live bait. Over the years I have run just about every type of flats boat and bay boat made and just could not find the perfect brand new boat for me. You quickly realize that there is no perfect boat for every situation and everything is a compromise. After seeing a lot of my fellow guides completely rebuild old classic boats into exactly what they needed, I knew this was the only way I was going to get what I wanted. After lots of research and boat rides, I narrowed my search down to a classic 22-2 flatback Aquasport. The model I was looking for was the first ever Aquasport model hull made and only in production from 1967 to 1971. It was originally designed as a continued on page 39 Send Us Your Fish TalesThe Island Sun would like to hear from anglers about their catches.

17 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 9, 2011Plant SmartCoral Hoarypeaby Gerri ReavesCoral hoarypea (Tephrosia angustissima var. corallicola ) is a perennial listed as endangered in the state of Florida and as critically imperiled by the Institute for Regional Conservation. As recently as 1980, thorough searches could not locate a single plant in the wild. Efforts to cultivate and insure its survival are ongoing, particularly in Miami-Dade County. Out-competing weedy lawn grasses are theorized to be but one of the threats to this member of the pea family. The common name derives from the usually pinkish or lavender color of the flowers and the stems covered with fine whitish or gray hairs. The plant is also called rockland hoarypea, possibly because one of its native habitat, pine rockland. It makes a pretty groundcover in a natural landscape or a low-maintenance addition to a wildflower gardens. Coral hoarypea grows at a moderate rate and is long-lived and drought-tolerant. It forms a dense mat of vegetation only a few inches high and spreads widely. It can be grown from the seeds in the hairy pods. Sources: Plant Smart explores sustainable gardening practices that will help you create a low-maintenance, drought-tolerant, hurricane-and pest-resistant South Florida landscape. Join The Arbor Day Foundation In September And Receive 10 Free Live Oak Trees For Planting In FloridaAs part of the Arbor Day Foundations Trees for America campaign, everyone from Florida who joins the Foundation in September will receive 10 free live oak trees.

Peter and Mallory Haffenreffer continued their annual tradition of matching any donation made to the center up to a total of $10.000. The challenge was issued in April during the centers 7th Annual Fundraising Celebration at the Haffenreffers beautiful Sanibel Island home. The celebration welcomed many prestigious guests who enjoyed Africanthemed dcor, South African wine, and locally grown food. The vision of the center is embodied in its recent publication, This Sense of Awe and Wonder, which was passed out as a gift to guests. This collection of Rachel Carson Distinguished Lectures from 2004-2010 offers insightful, original lectures delivered to an FGCU and Southwest Florida audience. The lecture series brings public intellectuals to Southwest Florida and opens up discussion for issues such as sustainability, ethics, democracy, and literature. For access to the booklet, visit www.fgcu. edu/cese/events.html or contact Sanibel resident and Center Director Peter Blaze Corcoran for a free copy by email at or 590-7166. Through the generosity of the Haffenreffers and fellow contributors, the center is able to make progress in its many endeavors. Currently the center is working on an international network of research centers involved in the scholarship of education for sustainable development. The center has taken a leadership role in the creation of the network which will serve as a creative and innovative space to strengthen the task of mainstreaming sustainability in higher education institutions. It will work to promote international and intergenerational collaboration, connect innovation hubs on campuses, and serve as a platform for the exchange of ideas. The center also helps support environmental and sustainability education projects by issuing mini-grants to FGCU faculty and staff. They give special attention to education projects that incorporate the Earth Charter and that share similar goals with the center. A recent project funded by the centers mini-grant program involved sending over 30 students to Washington DC to attend Power Shift 2011. Power Shift is a youthful movement that represents standing together to reclaim our democracy from big corporations and pushing our nation to move beyond dirty energy sources that are harming the health of people and the planet. Looking ahead to next year, the center is already busy making preparations for next years Rachel Carson Distinguished Lecture weekend which will run February 16 through 18. In addition to the lecture, the ambitious weekend will also include the centers 8th Annual Fundraising Celebration. The Center extends its gratitude to all those who contributed toward the Centers best fundraising season ever! Contributions from the Sanibel community allow the center to continue its work toward realizing the dream of a sustainable and peaceful future for earth through scholarship, education and action.

Volunteer opportunities can be customized to suit your skills, interests and schedule, so you dont have to be a shell expert to help at the shell museum.

All volunteers are provided with on-site training and orientation, a museum membership, and store and event discounts. Volunteers living off-island will receive Sanibel Causeway toll reimbursements.

Then its on to Hollywood with the musical numbers Funny Face, Nobody But You, and others. The final segment, He Loves and She Loves, is set somewhere here and now and has such memorable tunes as Lady Be Good, Someone to Watch Over Me, Shall We Dance and a terrific solo by Matthew Rickard singing Swanee. In addition to Thomas and Rickard are cast members Katie Mitchell, Cassandra Nuss and Jake Delaney who also add their incredible talents to the production. These five performers move about the stage, singing and dancing their way through one number after another. The choreography by Vince Pesce, who also directs the show, is quite impressive.

27 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 9, 2011Cantus On the Shoulders of Giants employes vocal versatility, artistic excellence, and charismatic personality with a nine-voice mens ensemble to present On the Shoulders of Giants.

Tenor Steve Amerson and Broadway star soprano Laurie Gayle Stephenson will combine their powerful voices to present Amazed by America. This patriotic musical production will be a Broadway-style salute to the troops including songs such as Into the Fire, Requiem for a Soldier, Bring Him Home, American Anthem, God Bless America, and Shenandoah. With an a la Victor Borge style, the MozART GROUP is a string quartet that consists of well-educated instrumentalists who graduated from the prestigious Academies of Music in Warsaw and dz, and decided to play classical music in a humorous way. They created a worldwide unique musical cabaret where the music, not the words, is the source of joy and laugher. The musicians of the MozART GROUP have been playing together since 1995.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 9, 201128 Art Walks The Runway And Edison College Presents A One-Act Play At The Sidney & Berne Davis Art CenterThe Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center presents wearable art and art couture at Octobers Art Walk. Artists and fashion designers from Southwest Florida will be showing some of their canvas-to-runway designs. The fashion show takes place on October 7 at the Art Center, 2301 First Street in the River District, downtown Fort Myers. Helen Gerros statement-making, bold range of designer womens wear and handpainted dresses are an example of art couture. Gerro will feature designs from three of her collections at Art Walk. At 6:30, see her casual collection of Gerro painted jeans and short party dresses. At 8 p.m. she will showcase her artsy evening collection of dark, gothic fashions with headpieces galore. The 9 p.m. finale will be her must-see, haute art couture day glow collection. Coming from a large family in rural Minnesota, Gerro taught herself the rudiments of sewing and design at an early age. She has been sewing and creating clothing for herself and friends since age nine. I moved to New York at the age of 21, and thats where I really learned about the fashion industry and the garment district. Thats where I was really inspired and learned how to develop my own line and take it to the market from sketch, design, line, collection, sales and manufacturing to delivery. After three years, fate brought Gerro back to Minneapolis, Minnesota, where she sold her own line, Gerro, to fine department stores such as Dayton Hudson, Marshal Fields and Nordstroms, as well as boutiques throughout the U.S. The year before Hurricane Charley, she and her husband moved to the sunny Gulf Coast of Florida, where she set up a small specialty shop/studio selling her dresses and art. You can find her gallery/studio at 207 East Marion Avenue in Punta Gorda. Maria Pia of Dore Designs will be showing some pieces from her collection at 7:30 p.m. Dore Designs is a nationally recognized name in ballroom fashion. Some of their gowns have been seen on the reality television show, So You Think You Can Dance. Dore Designs, Inc. was founded in the 1970s by Dorothy Salcedo so that her son could be dressed for his career with Fred Astaire Dance Studios. Although the company has grown from Dorothys guest bedroom to a 6,000-square-foot space with a staff of 25, its mission remains the same: cutting edge fashion, the finest of fabrics and unsurpassed quality of construction to produce the best ballroom, skating, pageant and evening gowns available in the United States and beyond. At 7 p.m. and again at 8:30 p.m., Edison College will present Chronicles Simpkins Will Cut Your Ass, by Rolin Jones. It premiered at the Humana Festival of New American Plays (Actors Theatre of Louisville) in 2008 as part of a longer work called Game On. Doors open at 6 p.m. for this evening of fashion and theatre.

29 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 9, 2011Five Artists Plus Business Owners Equal A Good ThingThis is a story with a perfect ending, which began when Claudia Goode, curator of Arts for ACT Gallery in downtown Fort Myers began thinking about things that might make Abuse Counseling and Treatments annual auction some money and create a bit of fun for the audience. She thought about having a group of artists create a large painting during the event. Immediately, she thought of five artists who have also been there for ACT, ACT Gallery and the community at large. These five artists are David Acevedo, Stephen Gray-Blancett, Jeffery Scott Lewis, Scott Guelcher and Troy Thomas. When asked, none of them flinched or even hesitated all of them said, Yes, we will help you in any way we can. The initial meeting was held at ACT Gallery and a theme was chosen. The artists agreed it should be something patriotic. Ideas were thrown around and a flag theme was in the running. However, the theme of the auction is graffiti, so the flag idea was dismissed because the artists could not see changing or painting graffiti on the American flag. With this being the 10th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attack, all agreed that the theme for the painting would be about that. The five artists agreed to paint three studies for the silent auction that would become mystery paintings. They all met at Lewis studio to paint the studies. All five artists painted on each of the studies, each jumping in when an idea or a technique came to mind. For the auction, all of the studies were wrapped in brown paper and placed in the three silent auction pods at the Arts for ACT Fine Art Auction. Auction bidders knew only that the artists were Acevedo, Scott, Blancett, Guelcher and Thomas. The mystery paintings created quite a bit of curiosity and even some bidding wars. The three sold to Jeff Lentz, Sheri Delaney and Laura Streyffeler. During the course of the auction, all five artists would go over to the painting and paint and/or turn the canvas. About one hour into the painting, it became clear that it was commemorating the 9/11 terrorist attack. Around 9 p.m., they decided that the painting was finished and the five would take it up on stage to auction off. Lewis came up with the idea that maybe the auction buyer would buy it and donate it to one of our local fire departments in honor of all the fallen heroes from the attack. This is where the owners of Jasons Deli enter this story, Diana and Scott Willis, always ready to help ACT through sponsorships and donations, were the winning bidders for this emotionally charged painting. Diana Willis emailed Goode at ACT the Monday after the auction to tell her she was the winning bidder and was indeed donating it to one of the local fire departments. Her only wish was that she had bid on and gotten a mystery piece, because she and her husband both loved the painting and would have liked a smaller one like the studies. Goode immediately contacted the five artists to see if they could get together to create a piece for the Willis home. They all agreed and met at Lewis studio on Monday, August 15, and produced three more pieces to give to the Willises. The Willises were given their choice of any of the three paintings to hang in their house or offices for their enjoyment. They donated the 48 x 60 painting Remember 911 to the Southtrail Fire Station on Daniels Road on Wednesday, September 7 as a rememberance of the fire fighters and other servicerelated loved ones who were lost 10 years ago in New York City. The other two 20 x 24 paintings will be given to Abuse Counseling and Treatments art gallery. The gallery is located at 2265 First Street in downtown Fort Myers. These two paintings will be sold to raise funds for ACTs clients, the victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking and the temporarily homeless. The paintings are now on view at Arts for ACT Gallery. The gallery is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Study 9-11 V Voted 2011 Best of Southwest Florida for Best Casual Fine Dining Located inside the Historic Island Inn 3111 W.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 9, 201130 Around The Islands Tween Waters Inn Island Resort Is Full Of Activities, Luxuries, And Surprisesby Emilie AlfinoIts hard to know where to start to describe all thats happening and all thats available at Tween Waters Inn Island Resort as it celebrates its 80th birthday this year. The beauty of its 13 acres is known to everyone in the area especially the quaint seaside cottages facing the white sand and the Gulf of Mexico on the long straight strip of Captiva Drive. According to General Manager Jeff Shuff, the work is under way to get portions of the resort on the National Historic Register: some of the cottages, the dining room, and the marina. What is now a superb resort began life as a fishing camp owned by the Price family. But theres so much more to this resort: The Old Captiva House, The Crows Nest and all its activities, the spa, the marina and store, and the famous crab races and holiday parties. Shuff, a Sanibel resident for 40 years and Tween Waters general manager since 1990, took me on a tour early one recent morning. Starting with the charming and elegant Old Captiva House, where a continental breakfast buffet is served complimentary to guests and for $9.95 to the public. I learned the room is also used for weddings and wasnt surprised. Its surrounded by windows with a gulf view, decorated with white linens and terra cotta walls to make you feel like youre outdoors. The restaurant has an extensive dinner menu. Appetizers range from escargot with fresh thyme, portobello mushrooms, herb butter and garlic croutons ($9), to baked brie with French bread, sliced apples and raspberry sauce ($10). Then its on to soups and salads like blue crab bisque ($7), and steak salad gorgonzola ($10). Entrees include herb roasted lobster tail with saffron risotto (7 oz., $37), Captiva Bouillabaisse ($28), filet mignon ($34), and veal chop ($28). The other dining spot, The Crows Nest, is known for livelier goings on and more casual, but just as good, food. Starters including spinach-and-artichoke dip ($9) or hummus dip ($7). Gourmet pizzas are available for $16 or $17, as well as sandwiches such as lobster cake with sweet potato fries ($16) and fish tacos ($14).

33 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 9, 2011 will see approximately 13,500 people killed on television. Most languages change dramatically over time. If we in modern America were to try to read Beowulf (which was written in Old English), for instance, only those who have spent time studying the language would be able to make out more than a word or two here and there. If youre from Iceland, however, this isnt the case; the written language there has remained virtually unchanged for more than 1,000 years. Modern Icelanders have no trouble reading sagas that were written in the 10th century. Relative to body size, humans -unsurprisingly -have larger brains than any other animal. Of non-human animals, its the bottlenose dolphin that has the largest brain. When Great Britains current Queen Elizabeth -then Princess Elizabeth -wed Prince Philip, their wedding cake weighed a whopping 500 pounds. As legend has it, in 1288, when Dusseldorf, Germany, was granted its city charter, children all over the city began turning cartwheels for joy. The cartwheel has been an enduring part of the culture there ever since, and in 1937 the city even inaugurated an annual international cartwheel championship. Those who study such things claim that when youre playing Monopoly, youre likely to land on Illinois Avenue and the B&O Railroad more than on any other squares.

Award-Winning DocumentaryThe Rush Library Film Series kicks off its season with the award-winning documentary The Anatomy of Hate; A Dialogue for Hope at 7 p.m. on Friday, September 16 at Edison State College. The free film series brings documentary, foreign and independent films to the Rush Library Auditorium at Edison State College. Librarian and History Professor Jane Bigelow leads a brief discussion at the conclusion of each film. My goal with the Rush Library Film Series is to screen documentary films that will generate strong opinion, stimulate discussion and encourage alternative, sometimes even controversial points of view, Bigelow said. I like that this film not only delves into narratives of hate, but also provides a hopeful message. The documentary, directed by Mike Ramsdell, follows several international hate groups during six-year period. It was the winner of Best Political Documentary at the Philadelphia Independent Film Festival, Audience Choice winner at the Atlanta Docufest and an official selection at numerous other film festivals. The post-screening discussion for The Anatomy of Hate will feature director Ramsdell. Its the second time a director has participated in the Rush Library Film Series. Nothing beats live, face-to-face interaction, Bigelow said. Ramsdell can expand on and speak to his six-year experience with some of the most vicious ideologies of our time and address how to turn hate into hope. This years Rush Library Film Series also includes Play in the Gray on Friday, October 21 and Inside Job on Friday, November 18.

PGA TipsA Quick Practice Routineby Matt Oakley, PGA Golf ProfessionalMost of us get very little time for golf, much less practicing golf. If you have little practice time, here is a quick routine to use. If you did this routine at least once a week for 45 minutes, your game would improve immediately! 1. Fifteen minutes of putting practice Start 30 feet from the hole with one golf ball. Roll about (3) 30 footers from (4) different angles (uphill/downhill/breaking right/breaking left). This will total 12 putts. Then roll a total (20) 5 footers. Putts make up about 40% of the total strokes in a game of golf; it deserves at least 1/3 of your total practice time. 2. Fifteen minutes of chipping/pitching Chip and pitch from all different lies and distances around the green for 15 minutes. Focus on your routine as if you were on the golf course playing. Stand behind the ball, visualize what you want the ball to do, do a few rehearsal swings then hit the shot. 3. Fifteen minutes of full swing practice Start with a wedge and hit a few full swings to a specific target and specific yardage. Hit a few balls with each club going with more club as you go (wedge, then 9-iron, then 8-iron, etc) until driver. This brief but useful routine will let you hit every shot you would face in a round of golf in about 45 minutes. Do this at least once a week and your scores will come down soon after. SPORTS QUIZ1.

35 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 9, 2011Wimmers, No. 1 Draft Pick, Ends Season With No-Hitter For The Miracle; Are Problems Behind Him?by Ed FrankFinally, finally it appears that the $1.3 million dollar investment that the Minnesota Twins have in Alex Wimmers, their No. 1 draft pick last year, has begun to pay dividends. Sidelined most of this season due to injuries and other reasons, Wimmers closed out his season with the Fort Myers Miracle last Saturday pitching a seven-inning no-hitter against the Jupiter Hammerheads in a 1-0 win. It was the first nohitter for the local team since June 30, 2007, when Yohan Pino shut down St. Lucie over seven frames. The victory also was the first complete game and shutout in Wimmers brief professional career. Just a few days earlier, the two-time Big 10 Pitcher of the Year out of Ohio State, tossed five no-hit innings against Palm Beach setting the stage for last weekends no-no. His early-season problems were somewhat of a mystery, particularly since he was a rookie sensation with the Miracle last year after signing with the Twins in August. He went 2-0 with a sparkling 0.57 ERA in late-season pitching. But in his first start with the Miracle this year, Wimmers walked the first six batters and uncorked three wild pitches before being yanked and placed on the disabled list. Jim Rantz, the Twins director of the minor leagues, said at the time that the prized pitcher had location problems possibly stemming from a pulled quadriceps muscle suffered in spring training. He remained on the DL for several weeks while gradually regaining his control. Once back on the Miracle roster, Wimmers appeared in 16 games, including four starts, and finished the season with a 2-3 record and a respectable 4.2 ERA. Im a different pitcher now than I was then, the youngster said after his no-hit performance, referring back to his disastrous season start. Finishing up strong is awesome its a huge confidence boost. From where I have come, I am pretty happy, he added. The 22-year-old right-hander pitched a nine-inning no-hitter for Ohio State against arch-rival Michigan in 2009, a year before the Twins drafted him. But Saturday nights professional no-hitter was particularly special for Wimmers as his father had flown in from Cincinnati to witness his sons final start of the season. Hes always been my No. 1 fan, he said after tossing the game ball to him in the stands at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter. Some baseball experts had predicted that the flame-throwing Wimmers could reach the major leagues as early as 2012. With the problems that beset him in 2011, thats likely not to occur. But his encouraging finish to a difficult season offers hope for the future for this No. 1 draft selection. Miracle End Season at 63-76 After a strong first-half season finishing second in the Florida State League South Division, the Fort Myers Miracle slipped to fifth place in the second-half with a 29-40 record. For the entire 2011 season, the Miracle had a 63-76 record in the second year that Jake Mauer, the older brother of Twins catcher Joe Mauer, manager the High Class A Team. The Miracle did complete the season in winning fashion, taking two of the final three games from St. Lucie.

But remember, since most design trends run on an eightto 10-year cycle, what goes around eventually comes around again. While its important that your redecorating project reflect your taste and lifestyle, its fun to think about incorporating a new trend or two in your overall design. Here are just a few of todays hottest design trends. Surely theres at least one of these super ideas that would be just perfect for you. Retro Rages. Thats right, were back in the s, s and s! Retro touches might range from diner-style stools, chrome and glass tables, brightly colored cocktail glasses, beaded lamps why, even those ever popular lava lamps have made a big comeback. Garden Goodies. Theres nothing more peaceful than a beautiful garden setting. Mother Natures versatile color palette is now being seen in abundance indoors. Todays homeowners want their homes to be peaceful settings. As a result, our love affair with our gardens has never been stronger. From statuaries to birdbaths to multifaceted gazing balls, ornamental accessories abound. Hand-painted Furniture. If you crave some individuality in your decorating, then why not think about adding a unique piece of hand-painted furniture to your room. From end tables to sideboards, wine racks to coffee tables, your personality can truly come to the forefront when you add a uniquely painted piece of furniture. And dont be afraid to mix this newly acquired treasure with your existing wood pieces. Metal Madness. Were just mad about metals! Wrought iron, burnished copper, and pewter tones can be found everywhere especially in dramatic bed designs. Metal Verdi geris finishes continue in their popularity, as do distressed finishes. Combining wood and glass with metal is also a hot look. Clocks Count. Clocks of every shape, design and style are abundant. Youre sure to find just the perfect clock accent for any room in your home. Perhaps your foyer would be the perfect setting for a traditionally designed grandfather clock. Or maybe your fireplace mantle is yearning for the graceful design of a mantle clock. And dont forget that bare wall. Wall clocks have never been more diverse in their design, or more appealing. Color Calliope. Think about blackand-white combos, rich peach shades, seafoam greens or robins egg blue paired with warm brown. And dont forget to include a golden hue or two if your walls are in need of a color face-lift. Jeanie Tinch is an interior decorator on Sanibel.

39 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 9, 2011 From page 16New Guide BoatBahamian patrol boat with the first ones of the line being sold to the Chub Cay club. Made in Hialeah, Florida, this was the first outboard powered center console style boat ever built. She is able to run very shallow yet handle big seas. The flat back design requires very little horsepower to plane the boat. The design is flat bottomed in the stern yet has a high sharp V in the front to break the waves. Over the last 10 or so years they have become a very popular guide boat in the Tampa Bay area as its often rough in the wide open bay but there is also lots of really shallow water. There is not a more copied hull design ever built than the flatback Aquasport. After a three-month search for a 22-foot flatback to rebuild, I finally found one up in Ocala. The same day I found it, I made the drive. As it turned out I bought the boat from the nieghbor of the original owner. The seller had the original bill of sale and, after purchasing the boat he had grown up fishing on in New Hampshire, he moved to Florida. I was amazed at how good the condition of the 42-year old hull was in, not that it would have mattered as I was planning to completely strip the boat and rebuild it. The original owner had paid $3,200 in 1969 for the twin outboard powered boat hull #327. Every last bit of free time I have had for more than a year has been spent working on this boat. I completely stripped the thick hand laid fiberglass hull of its transom, stringers and cap and had it sandblasted before the rebuild started. Using nothing but composite materials, the hull is now completely wood free, lighter and much stronger than it was when it was new. I designed and built an all-new grid system of stringers along with a console, full transom and cap. This project really gave me the chance to build what I think is the perfect Southwest Florida guide boat. My intention during the building of this boat was that it would be a one-time build that would last me the rest of my guiding career. With the boat going in to get wired and rigged with a brand new motor this week, Im just thrilled at what was pulled off over the last year. I would like to thank everyone who came by and helped me or just had words of encouragment during my many itchy fiberglass days. I also want to thank my wife for being so understanding, for letting me build a boat at our house. I really do think the only way you get exactly what you want in a boat is to build it yourself. This classic antique Florida built boat is now one of a kind, sexy, and has a great history. She will be good for another 20 plus years of use.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.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 9, 201140 Hidden TreasuresGoing Green With Jewelry And Giftwareby Dan Schuyler and Karen BellMany of us are conscious of recycling our newspapers, aluminum cans and the occasional Christmas gift (you know who you are), but now consumers can purchase jewelry and giftware that are made from recycled materials as well. There are several designers and manufacturers who offer items made from recycled and reclaimed gold, silver, gems, glass and aluminum. Some are made due in part to the cost to search and mine for new material, others elect to do so to avoid damage to the environment through mining activities. As the trend of going green becomes more sustainable and popular across all industries, items made from recycled materials are becoming more and more accepted and sought out, not only for their friendliness to the environment, but for their beauty. One designer who creates jewelry from recycled materials is avid environmentalist Toby Pomeroy. His company has worked exclusively with reclaimed and recycled gold and silver since 2005, providing his customers and vendors with a line of jewelry that is both beautiful and sustainable. Pomeroys jewelry line is full of the textures of hammered gold and silver, forged into simple forms that follow the shapes of nature. His studio is full of young artists who use the tools and techniques of the native artisans of the Himalayas. Each piece is created from a solid gold wire or sheet, shaped, formed, cold-forged or hammered, set with diamonds and colored gemstones and then given a final polish. This process ensures that each piece is graceful, lightweight and very durable, complete with a lifetime warranty. In the giftware arena, Mariposa has been the leader in the field of using green materials since they first started creating glassware from recycled softdrink bottles in Mexico in 1980. Since then, the company has grown to offer several elegant and chic lines of glassware and serving platters, bowls and other tableware made of ceramic and aluminum. As they have since the beginning, they make each piece of recycled and reclaimed glass and aluminum. For example, the sandcast aluminum serveware in their popular Brillante Collection is made of 100 percent recycled aluminum and is certified to be environmentally friendly. The collection features various shapes found in nature such as flowers, shells, and animals. Their durable construction and whimsical shapes make them the perfect gift or collectable. Its also a little fun to imagine what the item may have been in its previous life.

41 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 9, 2011School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, I recently moved to Sanibel to help with my two granddaughters. I am especially concerned about the youngest, 11-1/2 years old. Her teachers recommended holding her back in fifth grade this past year, but her parents thought it best to promote her to avoid teasing and possible emotional difficulties. She struggles with math and reading comprehension. Ive been trying to help her this summer but worry about how she will keep up this fall. I think she may be ADHD but she has not been tested for that, and I believe my daughter is afraid of negative labeling in the school system. My granddaughter is bright but doesnt focus and is immature socially, lacking in logical thinking and responsibility. Do you have any suggestions? I enjoy your column in the Island Sun; it is a real community service. Thank you, Carol Hi Carol, You are a great grandmother to have moved here to help out with your granddaughters. You have listed a number of concerns in your question both academic and behavioral that you have about your granddaughter. You have also shared that the school wanted to retain her but her parents did not. I agree with the parents decision on retention. Research tells us that retention does not work most of the time especially with older children. What works is intervention and instruction to address the specific skill deficits of the child. Academically there appears to be a comprehension problem in both math and reading. A common skill to both subjects is understanding the vocabulary of the assignments. Can your granddaughter follow directions? Does she understand what key direction words mean? Does she understand math terminology? Does she need help to remember the sequence of the math operations? If so extra work on these essential functions might help her. While many children can sound out words and read them well, understanding what one reads is a different skill. After reading an assignment, can your granddaughter answer the five W questions: who, what, when, where and why? That is a starting point for comprehension. Before she begins a reading assignment, she should look through it to see what it is about, make some predictions about the content so she will have more focus and direction about what she is reading. After she reads it she should be able to answer the five W questions and see if her predictions were accurate. She will probably need help with this process at first. You mention that your granddaughter is socially immature and not responsible. You also suspect that she may have ADHD. Children with ADHD are more impulsive and lack focus. They have difficulty remembering and completing tasks. This may be the lack of focus and responsibility that you see. Giving her a chart with her responsibilities listed on it may help her remember. Breaking down her tasks into several sequential steps may also help her understand that she must complete all the steps to finish her job. As for being socially immature, she is entering the teen years and children follow their own timetable for this development. Your granddaughter may not be ready or feel comfortable with some of the activities that her peers are starting to engage in such as an interest in clothes, makeup, boys and other more teenoriented behaviors. She may be clinging to more childish behaviors until she feels more comfortable negotiating the complexity of adolescence. Giving her a wide choice of activities to choose from for her free time may be helpful. These teen years are the time when children should try different things; music lessons, sports, community service, drama or art activities might help her gain some confidence. I think that implementing these suggestions slowly would be best. Perhaps discussion with the classroom teacher would help to prioritize which to implement first. I hope that these suggestions will be beneficial for you and your granddaughter. Ms. Greggs is adjunct faculty at Edison State College where she teaches psychology and education courses. She is also Nationally Certified School Psychologist and consultant for School Consultation Services, a private educational consulting company.

The program will be recognized and the award presented at the ICMAs 97th Annual Conference September 18 through 21 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The ICMA provides national recognition to local government programs that demonstrate innovation, excellence, and success in the communitys safety, health and/ or wellness, including enhancement of quality of life for the disadvantaged. The center provides a pre-arrest diversion program for individuals suffering from mental illness or substance abuse disorders who are at risk for committing minor non-violent crimes. It is a voluntary alternative to incarceration and the inappropriate use of emergency rooms. Unfortunately, state funding previously awarded to the Triage Center was vetoed by Florida Governor Rick Scott and removed from Floridas 2011-12 budget. In order for the Triage Center to continue operating after December 2011, additional funding sources are being researched to replace the budget deficit created by the withdrawal of state funding. Current funders include the Lee County Board of County Commissioners; the Veterans Administration; the State of Florida Criminal Justice, Mental Health and Substance Abuse Reinvestment grant; the Florida Department of Law Enforcement; and the partners listed below.

Thee winner will be announced on September 23. Charities interested in applying for the initiative must: Be located in the general Fort Myers area Submit a 250-word description of their organization Submit a 250-word proposal explaining how a website would assist their charity Commit to five in-person meetings with students on Rasmussens campus throughout the semester to discuss the goals and progress Applications can be emailed to School of Technology and Design Program Coordinator Jennifer Ayotte by September 14 (Jennifer.Ayotte@, or mailed to Rasmussen Colleges Fort Myers campus (9160 Forum Corporate Parkway; Attn: Jennifer Ayotte; Fort Myers, FL 33906).

Hurricanes, Electricity And Air Conditioningby Bryan HayesHaving just dodged another bullet with Hurricane Irene, it makes me think about how our modern day conveniences are sometimes taken for granted how we sometimes forget that these modern day necessities make it possible for us to live wherever we want. Having gone through Charlie, I still remember what it was like to have such conveniences, like electricity, communications and A/C suddenly cut off. For instance, here I sit comfortably in my office midday while the temperature outside approaches 90 degrees. Imagine for moment what life would be like without air conditioning? Would we build our homes differently? Would our place of work still be the same? How about the areas of the country we live in? Would you want to live in the subtropics without A/C? Try and fathom what it would be like to be in a 50-story, concrete building without any A/C in the middle of August. The fact is that as a society, we would have not advanced to our level of living without the advent of air conditioning. We are able to build houses in places that where all but desolate 70 years ago. We can work in 50-story buildings and taller in the hottest times of the year and still be very comfortable. Because of air conditioning (and heating), we can make ourselves very comfortable in areas of the world that we would have never considered before. Also, keep in mind that air conditioning and refrigeration are one and the same. So think about your fridge/freezer as a concentrated air conditioner. The advent of refrigeration has also changed the way we live. There is no longer the daily trip to the market to obtain that days food. We can now go to a warehouse store and buy enough supplies for a month or longer. So as we look off to the horizon in the middle of hurricane season, take a moment to go out and hug your air conditioner and be glad that we dont have to live in caves.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 9, 201144 Mom And Me by Lizzie and PryceLizzie and Pryce answer your questions and give advice about aging concerns from a two-generational perspective. A mother and daughter team, Lizzie is a retired RN and health educator, and Pryce is a licensed psychotherapist in private practice who specializes in the care of elders and people with chronic illnesses. Dear Mom & Me, I am fed up with cell phones or the poor manners of their users. Everywhere I go people have them at their ear: grocery shopping, offices, churches, restaurants and of course driving on the interstate at 75 miles an hour. My bridge club is also fed up and they penalize players when their phones ring. The other day I was at a small business meeting. Their phones were constantly ringing. Others just had their signal on vibrate but would leave the meeting and go and return the call. There was a fiveor 10-minute delay in which nothing could be accomplished in their absence. Will this ever end, or do you think it will gradually fade away? Verna Dear Verna, I think it will only get worse if that is possible. Yesterday a friend told me her husband decided for a special treat to take their two sons to a very posh golf course for a day of fun and relaxation. As the first son went to tee off on the first hole, his phone rang. He stopped, answered the phone and went over to the side. His father went over and when the call was finished he told him turn that damned thing off were here to relax. As they approached the hole, he saw his other son in the rough talking on his phone, so the father went over and told him the same thing. The father was furious, and the day was not as he had planned. When four-year-olds arrive at day care with their phones in their pockets to call mummy at their break, I cant see it ever ending, but we wont be here to be annoyed! Lizzie Dear Verna, I agree there are a lot of cell phone users with poor manners myself included. I have recently noticed businesses are fighting back. Some fast food restaurants are refusing to take orders unless one is off the phone. The clerk at the post office refused to wait on me because I was listening to voice mail. She served the person behind me. My friends kids are driving them nuts with their constant texting. The one that gets me is texting and talking on the cell phone at the same time. I do not think cell phones will be going away any time soon, but maybe cell phone manners will improve including my own. Pryce Lizzie and Pryces email address is Local Red Cross Helping With Irene RecoveryFlood relief efforts will continue for weeks, as the American Red Cross continues to increase its services in response to Hurricane Irenes aftermath in the northeast. Part of that increase in services includes several additional local volunteers who have deployed in recent days to assist the relief efforts. Regionally, 11 Red Cross volunteers, seven from Lee and four from Collier, are currently spread out among New York, New Jersey, Virginia and North Carolina. A 12th local volunteer, Ann Boehm, will depart Friday for Connecticut. The duties our local volunteers are performing include driving mobile feeding trucks into affected areas with food and water, nursing and bulk distribution of supplies. One volunteer, Kathy Maloney of Lee County, is helping with financial and statistical tracking. Thousands of people up and down the East Coast have turned to the American Red Cross for help following Hurricane Irene. The Red Cross is operating shelters, providing food, distributing relief supplies and offering emotional support. To date the Red Cross has: Mobilized more than 4,000 Red Cross workers to help people recover. To date served nearly 500,000 meals and snacks. Nine kitchens capable of serving a total of about 125,000 hot meals each day are operating in North Carolina, Virginia and New York. Provided about 53,000 overnight shelter stays since Friday to residents from North Carolina to New England. Handed out more than 23,000 relief items like hygiene kits, mops, brooms, tarps, work gloves and coolers. A mobilefriendly version of our Returning Home after a Hurricane or Flood Checklist is available on Provided nearly 7,000 mental health and health services consultations. Red Cross volunteers are working side-by-side with many community partners to make sure people get the help they need. Costs are growing by the hour. The current estimate is that Red Cross relief services for Hurricane Irene could cost $10 million to $15 million. While the Red Cross hasnt raised anywhere near that amount yet, the public has always come through when Americans need help and they really need your help now.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 9, 201146 deaRPharmacist10 Tips For A Healthy Hineyby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: What are the best treatments for hemorrhoids, both the internal sort and the external? I ask because my wife and I suffer with these. Lucky us. S. D., Gainesville, Florida Answer: In the United States, approximately half of all people will suffer from hemorrhoids at some point in life, usually between the ages of 20 and 50. Its not necessarily a problem of the elderly or constipated, it can happen to anyone, even people who are healthy, but happen to sit for very long periods of time. Hemorrhoids whether internal or external happen due to weak veins that swell because of pressure. If these weak veins occur on the legs, we refer to them as varicose veins. The blood pools and causes veins to swell and engorge; this can be caused by many situations, among them obesity, pregnancy, lifting heavy objects or boxes, straining on the toilet, coughing, sneezing, standing or sitting for long periods of time. People who eat a high-fiber diet and stay well hydrated are less likely to suffer with hemorrhoids, whereas people who eat processed foods will eventually feel it in the end. Before I offer suggestions, I will first describe internal and external. The primary difference is pain. With internal hemorrhoids, there is no pain because the swollen veins are higher up in the rectum where there are no nerves. There maybe no symptoms at all, or you may have bleeding after a bowel movement. For some bleeding may be the first and only sign of internal hemorrhoids. For others, you may have a thin stool, and the urge that you are not finished yet. External hemorrhoids hurt like crazy and if untreated it can thrombose, meaning it can turn purplish-blue and bleed. They can itch, burn and irritate the anus, and you can feel them easily. No matter the type, dont sit excessively, or let your butt fall asleep on hard chairs! Here are some ideas to help yourself: Witch hazel. A natural astringent that helps with the swelling and pain. Hydrocortisone or calendula cream. Apply externally to ease pain. Preparation H suppositories. Perfect for internal hemorrhoids. An ice cube or ice pack. Apply this to your little monster, but wrap it in a paper towel first; dont put it on bare skin. Ibuprofen. An anti-inflammatory can do a lot towards reducing inflammation and pain. Quercetin. A dietary supplement related to vitamin C that may help improve vein strength. Take 300 to 1,000 mg three times daily. Warm sitz baths.10 to 20 minutes. Two herbs have a long history with regards to hemorrhoids. Butchers Broom contains ruscogenin which helps tighten the blood vessels. This herb was studied at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Center. Horse Chestnut contains aescin, which tones vein walls and is commonly used in Europe. Aloe vera juice may help constipation. Please see a specialist who can make sure that pencil thin stools, bleeding or other symptoms are in fact related to hemorrhoids, rather than something more serious. Physicians offer numerous helpful treatments. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

47 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 9, 2011 Dr. DaveLife-Saving Informationby Dr. Dave HepburnLeo, my Havanese dog (by the way, we Havanese owners are an uppity bunch and always use the word Havanese when referring to our dog so that you dont think we are owners of a Shih-tsu or Deputy Dawg) wears his emotions on his butt. Happy, and his tail becomes a weapon of mass destruction. Sad and it wilts like a Viagra failure. Excited and it becomes a merry-go-round game to pursue; frightened and it somehow makes him look bigger like a fuzzy toy rabbit, albeit a fierce-some one, of course. But how important is a tail to we bipeds? In fact, what is your most useless organ? (My wifes response was What or who?) Turns out we have several organs and tissue that are vestigial, just junk in our trunk. Useless, useless, useless, Sealey, useless...or are they? Coccyx The tailbone, more fun to call coccyx if youre a 10-year-old tempting your naughty vocabulary, is a collection of five fused (or sometimes separate) vertebrae. These fused vertebrae are the only vestiges that are left of the tail that other mammals still use for balance (cheetah), communication, (lions) and, for some primates in Africa and Ottawa, as a prehensile limb. However, the coccyx, unlike Ottawa, isnt completely useless. It allows ligaments, tendons, and muscles to attach to it that have a few important functions, including the role it plays in enabling us to sit properly. The coccyx used to be removed when people injured them but nowadays it is rarely taken out. There are cases of infants born with extra vertebrae, giving them tails. There are no real adverse health effects of such a tail, unless perhaps the child was born in the Dark Ages. In that case, the child and the mother, now considered witches, wouldve been killed instantly, which we usually file under adverse health effects. Tonsils/adenoids The tonsils are another useless part of the body that can cause a bit of grief. Open your mouth wide and youll see a tonsil on each side of your throat, unless youve had them removed, in which case youre much less likely to see them. Tonsils lurk about the back of your throat while adenoids hang out in the back of your nose. Tonsils and adenoids (T&A) are lymphoid tissues that are prone, in kids, to becoming infected and inflamed and as such were indiscriminate targets of scalpels. Tonsillectomies would cause kids to miss school and eat way too much ice cream, making them sick yet again. Any child with a decent criminal bent could stretch this surgery-induced holiday to two weeks, particularly if you suggested that your coccyx was also sore. I am proud to say that I missed 136 days in Grade 3, just shy of the record set by Capone. But are they troublesome, evolutionary vestiges or ardent defenders of the body? Both tissues function in antibody production and cell-mediated immunity and might well be important as a lymphoid defense mechanism organ in the upper respiratory tract. Doctors are now a little more reluctant to remove the tonsils or the adenoids no matter how badly Junior snores, snorts or schnoozles. When studies indicated there was no decrease in the number of colds, sore throats, and other respiratory infections between children who had them removed, and those who did not, Ben & Jerry stock completely tanked. Vermiform appendix The appendix is a narrow, muscular tube that attaches to the large intestine. Its purpose was to digest cellulose back when we were cattle or sheep or dentists. But as we have advanced our diet to one of less prehistoric tree bark and more Snickers bars, the appendix seems useless, unless youre a surgeon who spends way too much time playing Blackjack. But recently it was discovered that the appendix actually stores good bacteria that can be used to repopulate the gut in cases of severe diarrhea. It is a reservoir of probiotics! While not so important in countries not devastated by diarrheal diseases, those who live in nations with poor sanitation may need these in-house probiotics. The vermiform (meaning worm-like) appendix really did resemble a worm when I was living in the jungles of Vanuatu and took out appendices that were jammed up by the disgustingly large Ascaris worms. Okay, enough for today as I have been sitting here way too long typing up this life-saving information and frankly... my coccyx needs some ice cream. Like the column?

The outdoor lifestyle that brings people to the Sunshine State also means greater exposure to the sun the primary cause of skin cancer. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States, accounting for nearly 50 percent of all cancers diagnosed. According to the American Cancer Society, more than 2 million cases of non-melanoma skin cancer are found each year. In 2010, nearly 70,000 people were diagnosed with melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer. As with all cancers, early detection is the key to successful treatment. We know that all skin cancers are highly curable if detected early, Kreegel said. The five-year survival rate for a patient diagnosed with melanoma is 91 percent. If the cancer is detected while still in a localized stage, that rate jumps to 98 percent, Kreegel added. We want to ensure that we are catching the disease in its earliest stages.

Like some ancient maligned Fury from Africa you gather Your wrathful strength over the warm waters Of the open ocean, only to unleash That power upon the palmettos and slash pines of this battered peninsula. Now you have moved on, somewhat exhausted From your vicious punishment. You are back over the steamy summer currents Of the Gulf of Mexico and, like some monster, you inhale that Warmth and spin it into a tower of thunderstorms. Churn it into expansive whips of clouds that wail around your watchful, Becalmed eye. Tonight, under a gathering moon, you scream your Tormented soul with the cry of that wind....the Hurricane wind. Although your screaming winds lie three hundred miles to the North, I feel their every breath as they exhale against these thin walls. I see it spiral as the midnight clouds race towards New Orleans, Driven like cowering white dogs beneath the lash of your gale. In a few days time you will move inland and die. You will run out of elixir ocean and perish in A torrential flurry of storms and flooded streams. The land will dissolve you, rob you of that transfusion Of the warm salty moisture you thrive on. The Hurricane wind will soon follow, dying in a final gasp of air. But the summer is still young, and the next whirling Fury has Already left her equatorial homeland. She is filled with a tropical rage As she starts her destructive pirouettes in the lonely mid-Atlantic. We watch her dance, fearful of this, the most sinister of ballets. We wait, never knowing whose peaceful stage she will perform her Final act upon, tearing that theater to catastrophe. Charles Sobczak formed his publishing company, Indigo Press L.L.C., in 1999 just before the publication of his first book, Six Mornings on Sanibel That short novel is now in its seventh printing, with more than 35,000 copies sold. Several of his later titles, such as Way Under Contract and A Choice of Angels, went on to win both State and National book awards. More recently, in 2010, Indigo Press published Living Sanibel A Nature Guide to Sanibel & Captiva Islands. He then published a companion book, The Living Gulf Coast A Nature Guide to Southwest Florida.

Monica, ID# 509107 Lotus, ID# 511409 On Saturday, September 10, Shell Point Golf Club will welcome participants for the Inaugural 9-11 Memorial Invitational to run through the golf course in various categories. The course will open at 6:30 a.m., with a coaches meeting at 7:15 a.m., before the first race at 8 a.m. We are pleased to be working with East Lee County and Dunbar High Schools, who are co-hosting this exciting event, said Michael Mongoven, director of golf for Shell Point Golf Club. I think that the golf course and property of Shell Point will prove to be a wonderful location for the race due to the variety of natural environments throughout the community. The registration fees are $60 for a varsity team, $10 for individual entries, and free for JV teams that are participating with their varsity team. If a JV team does not join with a varsity team, then the cost is $25 for them to enter. This is a race that will use timing devices provided by Elite Timing & Event Management. For questions or to sign up, contact Coach Ray Romero at 461-5322 or by email at; or Coach Eric Reynolds at Fees will be due by Friday, September 9.
