This prestigious award, named after world renowned Broadway producer, director and choreographer Jerome Robbins, will be awarded to 26 former and current New York City Ballet ballerinas who worked with Robbins during their careers. The award will be presented by Chita Rivera, star of the movie West Side Story, one of Robbins most famous works, and will be followed by a performance of his ballet West Side Story Suite. In 1970, Jerome Robbins, a preeminent figure in the dance and theater world, established The Jerome Robbins Foundation with the intent to support dance, theater and their associative arts. Before his death in 1998, he expressed his wish that the foundation again extend its resources to the performing arts dance and theater especially, but not exclusively -including what developed into The Jerome Robbins Award. I would like there to be established a prize to some really outstanding person or art institution, said Robbins in 1995. The prizes should lean toward the arts of dance and its associative collaborators but not necessarily be defined by that surround. Robbins cited many callings, from teachers and designers to choreographers and presenting organizations, enjoining the directors to award the prize only when warranted by the distinction of the person, organization or project. Past recipients of the award are Jennifer Tipton, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Twyla Tharp, Robert Wilson, New York City Ballet, Brooklyn Academy of Music and San Francisco Ballet.continued on page 27Coastal Cleanup This WeekendOn Saturday, September 17, Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation will have its 26th annual International Coastal Cleanup on Sanibel. This is a volunteer effort to rid our coastlines and waterways of marine litter, pollution and debris. Last year, 400,000 volunteers worldwide removed 6.8 million pounds of coastal trash that can hurt local economies, injure and kill marine wildlife and choke the ocean environment. SCCFS partners in the cleanup are Keep Lee County Beautiful and Baileys General Store. Meet at SCCF, 3333 SanibelCaptiva Road between 9 a.m. and noon on Saturday, September 17 to check in and pick up cleanup data cards and trash bags. Bring your own water to reduce the use of plastic water bottles. Lunch and snacks on the Nature Center porch will be available from 10 a.m. until noon, thanks to Baileys General Store. There will be a dumpster to deposit trash. Last year volunteers picked up 3,216,991 cigarette and plastic filters, which top the worldwide marine litter list. Plastic bags came in second with 1,377,141 collected. Trash in the ocean is one of the most widespread problems threatening our waterways and wildlife and it is all preventable. If you have questions, want to pick your clean up spot, or get your data cards ahead of time, call Dee at SCCF, 472-2329.

Five members of the Sanibel Planning Commission serve on the BMRH committee. Johnson and Nancy Fash-Henry, executive director of CHR, which manages the citys affordable housing program, presented their annual report to the committee, both said they were working through the problems that have arisen in the past. However, Fash-Henry said she preferred to move forward rather than focus on the rear view mirror. Fash-Henry was hired earlier this year to replace Scott Marcelais, CHR director since 2005, who left this summer and one of his two staff members was let go; Johnson took over when Mike Cuscaden stepped down. Some applicants for limited equity ownership (LEO) who were told they could qualify were unable to meet loan requirements. The former executive director took the liberty and put renters in with the intention of converting them to sales, Johnson said. We began immediate plans to move these folks out of these eight units and into (rental) units, he added.continued on page 7

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 16, 20114 Naval Promotion On Caaptivaby Sarah CrooksOn Saturday, September 10, Lieutenant Commander Zoah Scheneman was promoted to commander in a cer emony in front of the docks of Jensens Twin Palms Resort and Marina on Captiva. Scheneman has 22 years of surface warfare experience with the navy. He first raised his right hand and repeated the officer oath to senior officer Commander Neil Funtanilla. After taking the oath, Schenemans grandfather Chester and daughter Jacqueline, replaced his old insignia and cover with the new senior field grade insignia and cover marked by the gold leaf-shaped embellishments. Scheneman then thanked his family and friends for being there to celebrate his promotion with him. He also thanked the Jensen family for allowing him to celebrate his promotion at their marina. Normally, naval promotions are quiet affairs performed in government offices with a senior officer but Scheneman wanted to celebrate it with his family and friends. He chose Captiva because his family has been coming to Captiva for family vacations for years. He specifically chose Jensens Twin Palms Resort and Marina because they are supporters of the organization Operation Open Arms. Operation Open Arms allows returning vets and service men and women to receive R&R benefits free of charge. This organization has expanded to a network of over 150 local businesses in Southwest Florida. Commander Scheneman will continue with his commanding officer training, which will be completed in February 2012 and then report to the USS Mahan DDG 72 as executive officer. The ship is scheduled to get a ballistic missile defense upgrade and will be deployed to the Mediterranean for missile defense in Europe. Congratulations to Commander Zoah Scheneman for his promotion.

Youve trained, you are ready. The air horn sounds and you are off. Its all good. And it all benefits CCMI (Community Cooperative Ministries). You are standing at the intersection of Captiva Drive and Andy Rosse Lane on a warm morning on September 18, watching and cheering as 500 cyclists ride by. Some ride like the wind and others, working very hard, with less forward motion. It doesnt matter, you cheer for all of them. Its all good, and there is no charge for spectators. At CCMI, you are facing more hungry people and emptier shelves. You know that Galloway Captiva Tri will help fill those shelves. You are filling cups with water and watching the runners on the beautiful golf course path. It is a beautiful day and you are helping 500 people make their dreams a reality. You are the Lee County economy, facing one of the bleakest months of the year. Over 600 people from throughout Florida, as well as Georgia, Michigan, Illinois and Indiana, come to race in September. You are not a great runner, but your best friend is and your cousin is a fast swimmer. Together you make an awesome team that is out to have a good time and a good race. Its all good. You are a six-year-old still wearing your race T-shirt and medal from the kids tri yesterday. You are watching Dad race, feeling very proud (there is one really angry three-year-old who wanted to race, but has to wait until he is six). You are watching your significant other racing, knowing that he or she is no longer a couch potato he or she has lost weight, gotten in shape, and turned his or her life around. The family doctor is thrilled. On September 17, more than 100 children will compete in two age groups in a mini-tri beginning at 8 a.m. Everyone who finishes will receive a medal. The purpose is to encourage lifetime fitness and family fun. On September 18, more than 500 people ages 14 to 75+ will compete to swim 440 yards, bicycle about 10 miles, and run 3.1 miles on Captiva Island to raise funds (to help the needy )and have fun. The Galloway Captiva Triathlon at South Seas Island Resort is a weekend family, fun and fitness event comprised of two childrens triathlons on September 17: (ages six to nine: 100-yard swim, 1.5-mile bike, 0.5-mile run; ages 10 to 13; 200-yard swim, three-mile bike, one-mile run); and an adult sprint length triathlon on September 18 (Swim 440 yards (0.25-mile) bike 10 miles, run 3.1 miles (5K).

After two hours of briefings and discussion of the 450-page budget, Councilman Doug Congress summed up the bottom line in one simple sentence: Sanibel taxpayers are going to pay a little bit less this year, and were reducing our debt. The tentative millage rate is 2.1561, which is .0032 percent less than the rolled-back rate and the same rate thats in effect right now. The rolled-back rate is the millage rate that would bring in the same amount of money as the current millage rate after adjusting for new construction. The tentative budget for 2011-12 is $47.78 million, compared to this years $56.43 million. The decrease in taxable property values from last years budget to this one was less than one-tenth of one percent (.0992), based on 2010 sales. The assessed values of taxable property on Sanibel for fiscal year 2012 (value at January 1, 2010) is $4,206 billion compared to 2011 assessed values of $4,211 billion. The average residential taxes paid to the city of Sanibel in 2011, pending information still to come from the assessor, was $1,395 in 2011 compared to $1,402 in 2010, based on a 2011 average residential taxable home value of $541,298. The final public hearing to adopt the millage rate and the budget is at 5:01 p.m. Tuesday, September 20 in MacKenzie Hall. The purpose of the first hearing, City Manager Judie Zimomra explained, was to get councils and the publics input so city staff can bring back the final budget on September 20. Councilors comments on the budget document were that it needed, among other things, a way to measure city goals, to make the goals more specific, to include details of debt reduction and more emphasis on greening of building projects added as part of the citys redevelopment efforts. Vice Mayor Mick Denham said he wants to work with city staff to re-do the water quality goals written into the budget document, making them more specific in terms of what Sanibel can actually accomplish. He compared the language currently in the budget to a goal as broad as Stop oil drilling in the gulf. Denham cited the uncooperative attitude of the South Florida Water Management District, the bad economy, and the legislature as reasons that not much was accomplished on water quality in the past year. Im concerned with the regional goals, Denham said. Sometimes the city is criticized for overstepping its bounds but in this area, we should. Mayor Kevin Ruane said the theme since hes been on city council has been to reduce taxes and to pay down debt. Since 2006, the city has retired more than $20 million in the Sanibel sewer system debt alone, and an additional $7.2 million in governmental outstanding debt. And there are long-term effects of lower interest costs due to reduced debt lower fixed operating costs. The city has reduced staff to 114 employees, down 28 from four years ago. Salaries and fees have not gone up, except for the scheduled 3 percent hike in sewer rates. Council members raised some concerns about not only the sewer rate but all fees. Its a good time to look at the fees we charge our taxpayers in general, businesses and homeowners, Ruane said. We want to encourage and give as much economic relief as possible. Its a tough time for residents and businesses. We want to be sure we are not restricting the business owner and homeowner from improving his home or business. About $1.1 million was taken off the table for capital improvements in the sewer system, and Congress asked why. Its attributable to Phase IV of the sewer project, according to Public Works Director Gates Castle. He said to proceed at this time would mean the people in Phase IV would be paying about twice as much as the people in the previous phases. We dont think thats fair, he said. The citizen-voted sewer expansion money has met its maximum. During the budget hearing, Councilman Marty Harrity, under the subject of redevelopment, said he was very interested in the redevelopment at The Community House. We have had dialogue with a lot of different people and I dont know where its all going, he said. He wants to bring all interested parties together to be sure the community gets what it wants. I would be willing to champion some dialogue going forward, Harrity said. When we can all get together its really a productive event. He expressed some concern that the community house could possibly spend money on plans when the redevelopment is not a done deal and then they cant do it and the city is the bad guy. Ruane said Harrity is to reach out to the groups, see what their vision is, and bring it back to council as an agenda item in the next month or two. All councilman thanked Finance Director of Sylvia Edwards and Zimomra and their staffs for their work on the budget. Zimomra mentioned two items of note: that it was Gates Castles 20th anniversary with the city and his 20th city budget; it was also the 10th anniversary of Zimomra being offered the job of city manager.

7 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 16, 2011 BIG ARTS Must Preserve Buttonwoodsby Emilie AlfinoRalph Clark, a BIG ARTS board member, spoke to city council September 10 on behalf of that organization, which is seeking to make landscapiang changes to improve access and safety. The plan includes work on paths and patios as well as on the bicycle path that will connect Sanibel City Hall through BIG ARTS to the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village (referred to as the interconnectivity path). Clark said BIG ARTS has been working with the city for six weeks on a very positive basis and is pleased with the process except for one point. The work involves, in part, taking out 50 non-native trees and adding hundreds of native plants, according to Clark. The road running from city hall into BIG ARTS Boler Garden, which is threefeet wide concrete, is to be torn out and replaced by the interconnectivity path. Pervious pavers will replace shell in an effort to reduce fall hazards. The change also allows people who are less agile to be dropped off where there is a hard surface rather than difficult-to-negotiate shell.Randy Blackburn is the landscaper on the project. So-called donor stones in Boler Garden inscribed with the names of BIG ARTS benefactors currently laid in shell, will be taken out and used to make a patio and a bicycle parking area. They will be replaced in the courtyard with the same pervious pavers again, to reduce fall hazards. The only controversy with BIG ARTS plans arose when Clarks presentation got to the Gainer Veranda. He called it a gathering place where often several hundred people congregate after concerts, receptions, movies and lectures. There is a lake view off the veranda, but it cannot be seen. The view of the lake is blocked by three large cabbage palms and buttonwood trees, he told council. BIG ARTS proposes to relocate the palms and trim the buttonwoods so people can see the water. The palms dont seem to be a problem; trimming the buttonwoods is another story. We know it has been a concern that it would set a precedent because things like that are not normally done on city property, Clark admitted. He was right. Mayor Kevin Ruane said all the councilman had an opportunity to meet with BIG ARTS but not to speak to each other because of the Sunshine Law. Its not staffs recommendation to do this, he said. Dr. Loflin has given his reasons why. Dr. Rob Loflin is the citys natural resources director. Likewise, Vice Mayor Mick Denham opposed trimming the trees because it would set a precedent, as did councilmen Marty Harrity and Doug Congress. Councilman Jim Jennings differed. I would like to see a way we could do this, but it looks like now Im going to be outvoted. The project will take a while maybe we can think of something. A motion to approve the project but to exclude the trimming of the buttonwood trees was passed unanimously. Council Delays Sewer Rate Hike Hearingby Emilie AlfinoAt the regular city council meeting Saturday, September 10, city council voted to continue until September 20 at 9:15 a.m. two resolutions: to increase by 3 percent the rates for the Sanibel sewer system, and to provide a three-tier structure for general reclaimed water customers in addition to a 3 percent rate increase. Mayor Kevin Ruane said he had started to receive some comments and calls regarding the sewer rates and felt that not many people had had a chance to weigh in on the issue. Likewise, Vice Mayor Mick Denham said he was struggling with the hike and would like more time. He said he, too, had received some calls from residents. City Manager Judie Zimomra cautioned that reducing the 3 percent number would have a greater impact in the out years. The consultants report, a Sewer Feasibility Study prepared by Tara Hollis, environmental group manager for GAI Consultants Inc., offered four scenarios. Councilman Doug Congress said what it did not include was the scenario that Sanibel might want to consider: having paid down the debt and not increasing the fees 3 percent. Commercial sewer rates are based on volume of usage; residential rates are a flat rate. Sonja Smith, president of the Condominiums Association of Sanibel Island (CASI), told council that a 3 percent hike for reclaimed water customers might not seem like much but to some CASI members it would mean a $12,000 annual increase. Her members were likely to see increases of 39 percent to 44 percent, Smith said. All councilors agreed more thought, input and discussion was needed and voted unanimously to revisit the resolutions on September 20. In other city council news, the previously adopted fee increases for the Sanibel Recreation Center had to be voted on once again as normal procedure legislation, said City Attorney Ken Cuyler. The increases had been passed earlier as an emergency measure and just needed to be put in place permanently. The ordinance setting the membership fees also establishes a membership upgrade for after-school program participants. This is meant to fix an interesting problem, according to Cuyler: people who are not members of the recreation center have been getting day passes, then using those passes to obtain guest passes. This closes that loophole. From page 1CHR HousingAt present, three homes in the new Centre Place development on Main Street, opened in spring 2010, sit empty and cannot be rented because of grant stipulations. Centre Place represents 14 of the programs 74 below market rate housing units, which were created for the island workforce. Emilie Alfino, owner of a LEO unit on Beach Road, who heads a homeowners association group, said even though the CHR board doesnt want to look backwards, situations that were created under the previous management still need to be rectified. It is hard not to bring up the past, she said. We were promised things like inspections and that things would be fixed. We were asked to make a punch list prior to closing. There was an incredible rush to close or we would lose the federal tax credit (for first time homeowners) of $8,000. We closed on the very last day. No one did inspections and there were some serious problems with plumbing and electrical. Alfino said a couple of homeowners are frustrated enough they are telling me they want to get out, to sell. She asked where CHR would get the money to buy back the homes if that happened. Planning Commissioner Holly Smith, who was elected chairman of the Below Market Rate Housing Committee at the start of the meeting, said this wasnt an appropriate issue for this committee and should be handled internally.continued on page 14 GROG SHOP THEYour One-Stop for WINE SPIRITS LIQUEURS CIGARS GIFT ITEMS One of the Best Selections of Domestic and Imported Wines on the West CoastBest Liquor Selection on the IslandsSpecial Orders and Case Discounts Walk-in HumidorGreat Selection of Cigars and Accessories No need to leave the island... it's all right here!Bailey's Shopping Center (just right of the hardware store) Corner of Periwinkle and Tarpon Bay 472-1682Mon.-Sat. 9 a.m. 9 p.m. Sun. noon 7 p.m.Mt.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 16, 20118 Zonta Reports Progress With Grant Recipientssubmitted by Dalia JakubauskasFrom providing reading materials for adult literacy programs to helping to fund the salary of a bilingual counselor for battered women, grants from The Zonta Club Of Sanibel/ Captiva Islands awarded six months ago are being turned into actionable projects, according to Zontas nonprofit partners. Eleven local nonprofits that serve women and their families recently submitted midterm reports for 2011 to The Zonta Foundation of Southwest Florida, Inc., the fundraising arm of the of Sanibel/Captiva club. Submitted in August, the reports are part of the clubs ongoing grants process. The reports detailed how $54,000 awarded these groups has been spent thus far. Much of this money was raised in 2010 at Zontas Peek at the Unique island house tour. Held in March, the annual tour is the clubs main fundraising event. Groups that received money include: FISH (Friends in Service Here) of Sanibel; Sanibel Community Housing Resources, Inc.; The Sanibel Recreation Center; ACT (Abuse Counseling and Treatment); Southwest Florida Addiction Services; Human Trafficking Awareness Partnerships, Inc.; GRACE Project (Guatemalan Rural Adult and Childrens Education); Literacy Volunteers of Lee County; Parent University (a project of the Lee County School Districts Early Childhood Learning Services); PACE Center For Girls of Lee County; and Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida. In the face of a soft economy, most of these groups confronted reducing services due to cutbacks in public and private funding. But grants from private organizations like Zonta have filled in the gaps and helped them provide critical services to those in need in the local community. At ACT, a $5,000 grant from Zonta helped pay for the salary of a muchneeded bilingual counselor. So far, the counselor has provided therapy to 64 victims of domestic violence and human trafficking in the Hispanic community. A $6,000 grant to the Early Childhood Learning Services of the School District of Lee County helped pay for learning materials for both parents and students participating in the districts Parent University English class. The money also helped augment the purchase of bus passes and gas cards so parents could attend workshops on parenting, employment and self-growth. At SWFAS, over half of a $10,375 grant from Zonta has been spent on purchasing a computer, software and educational materials to help 23 women recovering from addiction transition from the groups Fort Myers halfway house back into the community. As a result, many of these women successfully completed their high school equivalency tests and two have gone on to take the SAT exam to enter college this fall. Closer to home, FISH used part of its $5,000 award to assist financially strapped single mothers and their children on the islands obtain necessary medical care, dental care and prescriptions. The grant also helped local women with one month of mortgage or rent payments, which were awarded on an emergency basis. A number of years ago, under the leadership of former Sanibel mayor and Zontian, the late Carla Johnston, The Zonta Foundation of Southwest Florida developed a process by which the club could measure the success of its service partners, said Barbara Nagle, president of the San/Cap Zonta Club. Carla passed away in April of this year, but her wisdom and expertise continue to guide us in evaluating our partner organizations, said Nagle. In applying for a grant, each organization specifies the goals and results they will achieve with Zonta funding. At the six-month mark and again after one year, we measure how successful the organization has been in achieving the goals weve jointly agreed upon. In addition to financial support, island Zontians participate as volunteers on service projects developed with these groups. These efforts are part of Zontas ongoing mission to advance the status of women both locally and internationally. The Zonta mission is to improve the lives of women in our community locally, and worldwide through Zonta International, said Nagle. Because all of our members are asked to volunteer and provide service in our partner organizations, we are intimately involved in their work. We see almost daily how organizations like FISH here on the island, and SWFAS, PACE, ACT and others are helping girls and women in Lee County.

This fundraiser benefits families in need by raising money for scholarships. Without scholarships, many island families would be in a desperate situation to find quality care for their children. Since 1999, CECI a true, not-for-profit community preschool has provided more than $180,000 in scholarships. On average, 10 percent of the preschools annual enrollment benefits from these scholarships. Our island economy is dependent upon the wonderful service from those who work in varying capacities on Sanibel and Captiva. Families rely upon CECIs loving, learning environment and extended care. The center provides for the youngest of children on a daily basis with our preschool education starting at two years old through the VPK program (fourand five-year-olds).The Beach Ball will be held Saturday, October 22 at The Sanctuary Golf Club from 7 to 10 p.m. This spectacular evening of fun will provide appetizers, buffet dinner, dessert, open bar, music by DJ New Beginnings, and many silent and live auctions. Our own Les Boyle did his best Amanda Bryant imitation and educated us on the SCCF Turtle program at a recent meeting. Many of our Kiwanians are certified permitees which allows them to handle the turtles and turtles nests to facilitate their hatchings. There are 130 volunteers in the program which runs from May 1 to mid-October. Charles LeBuff actually started Caretta Research on Sanibel back in the 1950s making it one of the oldest programs in the State of Florida. SCCF took over the program in 1992, and they are responsible for sending the data to Florida Fish & Wildlife and NOAA. There are four different types of turtles here locally: hawksbill, Kemps Ridley, leatherback and the most common, loggerhead. Boyle showed a PowerPoint presentation of how the female turtles dig their nests with their rear flippers to a depth of about three feet. On average, the mother will lay about 100 eggs. After approximately 55 days, the permitees actively monitor the locations and will begin to dig out the eggs. Approximately 85 percent of the eggs will hatch, but unfortunately only one percent of the turtles will reach maturity. The problems for turtles include artificial lighting during nesting season, plastics and debris floating in the water, commercial fisherman, boats, pollution and red tide. This week, we celebrated the birthdays of Al Lane, Dave Bunch and Andy Boyle. If you would like to join this fine group of service-oriented Sanibelians, please come to The Dunes on Tuesdays at 7:30 a.m. for a nice hot breakfast.

Sat. 10am 5pm Rotary Happeningssubmitted by Shirley JewellThe SanibelCaptiva Rotary Club is a proud sponsor, again this year, of Ding Darling Days at the J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, Sanibel. Mark October 16-22 on your calendar and make sure to visit the refuge on any day during this exciting happening. If you havent seen this years event schedule brochure, try to get a hold of one and plan a fun and educational outing. There is something for everyone in the family to do, starting with a Free Family Fun Day on Sunday, October 16. The self-described dynamic duo of Birgie Vertesch, executive director of the Ding Darling Wildlife Society, and Toni Westland, lead refuge ranger, stopped by our Rotary meeting last week, not only, to say thank you for our sponsorship but also to inform us of new and exciting improvements at the refuge. Vertesch explained that each year the staff of the refuge and the board of directors of the Ding Darling Wildlife Society work together to formulate goals, priorities and wish list needs that will enhance and improve the experiences of visitors to the refuge. With the help of Ding Darling Society members, contributors and fundraising, the societys financing of projects run the gamut from support for education and biology interns to establishing the new i-Nature Trail interactive QR code bar system. The Quick Response code-consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background and easily allows information flow through smart-phone technology. This QR trail is the first in the nation within the national park structure. To bridge together the support for interns and the development of this new technology, Lars Bredal, a college intern at the refuge from Elon University, North Carolina, a former student at The Sanibel School, brought the idea of the QR readers to the attention of the Wildlife Society and helped to develop this project. Westland explained that that there are 20 QR code postings on thei-Nature Trail along Wildlife Drive. This system allows visitors to pull up live ranger and trained naturalist video feeds throughout the park and provide additional educational information on wildlife and the environment of the refuge. This new interactive experience will titillate curiosity regarding the special areas within the refuge and enhance visitors experience, especially for teenagers in the family, who all seem to have cell phones with the capability of capturing this new technology. Westland said, Come out to the refuge and see for yourself; we have a new birding observation deck and have redone the mangrove overlook walkways with recycled plastic planking. Beginning this fall work is expected to begin on an enhanced Marvelous Manatees Exhibit. The refuge acquired an articulated manatee skeleton for its education center a couple of years ago. The Ding Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge applied this year for a grant from the West Coast Inland Navigation District; the goal was to improve the educational value of the skeleton. Exciting things are happening. Okay, so heres a challenge for everybody. I know its hot, but get your sunhat, binoculars, bug spray, suntan lotion and smartphone and go check the i-Nature Trail before the crowds hit and then bring back everyone you know for Ding Darling Days. The speaker on September l6 will be Jo Marshall, SHINE (Senior Health Insurance Network Education), Florida Department of Elder Affairs; September 23, John Nicholsen, Blessings In a Backpack Lee County.

City To Change Chain Store Application Processby Anne MitchellA store that opened in Periwinkle Place 10 months ago falls into the category of formula retail, but was only this week brought before the Sanibel Planning Commission for the appropriate permit. The oversight will lead to a change in the application process so that it doesnt happen again. Twice already this year, formula retail stores have opened without the appropriate permits and have required after-the-fact approval. The Sanibel Olive Oil Company is one of several similar stores under the ownership of Arnish Patel and as such requires a conditional use permit to operate on Sanibel. There was no objection to issuing a conditional use permit, along with certain conditions related to formula retail operations. The commission voted 7-0 in favor. However, some commissioners were vexed that it had taken so long to be resolved and that the city had issued a business license to Patel without knowing a conditional use permit was needed. Is there something we could do at the point where they get a business license? asked Commissioner Tom Krekel. He added, This gentleman was not trying tocontinued on page 49

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 16, 201116 Feeding Blitzes Tell Us That Fall Is On The Wayby Capt. Matt MitchellLast week, birds and feeding fish started showing up throughout the sound. Bending a rod was as easy as casting spoons, jigs or just about anything small into the activity. Sure, the majority of the fish were ladyfish, jacks, mackerel and trout but if you were looking for non-stop action it was easy to find. These birds and fish feeding on the bait schools are the first sign that fall is just around the corner. Working these bait schools is always a mixed bag of fish. You just never know what else will be around them or right in the mix. Sharks, tarpon and even a cobia or two are possible. The best activity I found was from the north side of Red Light Shoal up to Captiva Rocks. Look for pelicans diving and small white birds picking up the pieces of the bait fish the larger fish are eating. When the action slows, run to the next blitz. This has already started in the bay and should begin to happen along the beaches anytime too. Fishing these blitzes bay and gulfside is all about fishing your way up the food chain. Start out with a simple lure on light spinning tackle to catch a few ladyfish and whatever else is feeding. Then hook up one of the fresh-caught ladyfish either live under a float or cut up on the bottom on a larger rod, put it in the rod holder and see what happens. Any time there is this much activity going on, there are bound to be larger predators around. High tide redfish fishing was not so hot for me last week. We did manage a few redfish here and there up to 27 inches but no one spot was really on fire. Most of the reds caught ate cut baits and were caught under the trees. Mangrove islands in the northern sound were too packed with floating grass to even get a bait up under the trees. The no-motor zone in Wulfert Keys produced a few fish as did mangrove shorelines south of Demiere Key. Fishing whichever side of the sound the wind was blowing into seemed to help. Fishing the passes was still a good bet during the lower stages of the tide. Both redfish and snook could be caught in the faster moving water. Though Im never really thrilled fishing around the full moon, the stronger tides in the passes did give up a few fish on baits drifting along the bottom. Most of the catchandrelease snook action was on smaller size snook than in previous weeks. Shark fishing the deeper natural channels in the northern sound during the incoming tide has been the most consistent bite around. Cut chunks of mullet fished on a large circle hook with a small piece of wire caught lots of blacktip, bull and lemon sharks. These fish are hard fighting and a blast to catch. Just about any deeper slew in sixto nine-foot water feeding in from one the passes will hold these fun game fish. Fiveto six-foot sharks were common anytime during the incoming tide. With fall just around the corner, fishing options just keep getting better and better. I know it has not really started to cool off yet but in the next few weeks we will start to notice it even if its just the humidity dropping a little. Migratory fish that pass through our area every spring and fall are just starting to show up. Some of the first ones to flood in every year are Spanish mackerel and ladyfish feeding on the massive schools of small baitfish. Just behind them will be the king mackerel and bonita along the beaches. We will even have a few last chances to get a tarpon before they are gone until the spring. Some of the most wide open tarpon bites I can ever remember were at the end of September to the middle of October Rolling fish will be found both close to the beaches and in the bay. These fish will be mixed in with Spanish mackerel, ladyfish and glass minnows. Bumping into rolling tarpon is a good possibility this next month so dont leave the dock without a few big rods on board just in case its your lucky day.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.

Burnsed, a Sanibel resident with his wife Sara for 25 years, is the father of Jim and Joe Burnsed, both local fishing guides, and Pat Nolen, who lives in Orlando. Fishing is a passion in the Burnsed family and two grandsons and a grandson-in-law are also commercial guides. He has six grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. He is a retired Nazarene minister, and several people from his former congregation in Orlando showed up for the birthday celebration, according to his daughter-in-law Dall Burnsed, wife of Jim. There were 83 guests in all. Dall Burnsed said MG is well known to locals in the Bowmans Beach area, where he lives and he loves to fish. He walks two miles every day from his house to the beach and back. He is a well-known figure on that stretch of the beach. Also, he visits the firemen at Bowmans Beach fire station. MG Burnsed is a member of the Sanibel Community Church. Dall Burnsed said she would highly recommend the rec center for this type of occasion because they have something for everyone to do. The younger children could swim. It was a time of fellowship among old friends meeting up again, drawing people I havent seen in 35 years, people who appreciate his life as a Christian, she added.

21 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 16, 2011 CROW Case Of The Week: The Curious Armadilloby Emilie AlfinoAn adult male nine-banded armadillo came into CROW August 10 from Fort Myers. He was very listless and unresponsive, just lying on his side. His gums were really pale and the left side of his shell had deep cuts. The cuts didnt go all the way through the shell but there was dirt, drainage, and some scales were falling off. We were very worried about him, said Dr. Jess Brugler. To start with, mostly because of his dull attitude, the doctors best guess was that he had been hit by a car. Thats what usually does it for the armadillo, Dr. Jess said. We cleaned the wound, got all the dirt out with saline solution, bandaged it, and gave him an injection of antibiotics and some pain medications. They left it at that for the time being, put him in a cage, and left him alone. The same treatment was repeated the next day and staff started feeding the armadillo a soup slurry comprised of a special kind of canned cat food made for animal hospitals. If we put it up to his face so he could smell it, he would lap it up, Dr. Jess explained. Although he would eat if coaxed this way, he was still laying on his side, still dull, as staff continued to manage his wound and hope for the best, keeping him on pain medications. Then, a surprise: just three days after his arrival, someone found his cage door open. Staff looked all over the hospital until someone finally sniffed him out armadillos have a very strong, musky odor. He was hiding behind a big box in the corner of the office. He started walking really well and we fed him a couple of tubs of night crawlers, Dr. Jess said. Armadillos slurp them up just like spaghetti. Its hilarious to watch. The curious guy started walking all over the exam room after eating. He was no longer on pain medications but still needed to have his wound cleaned and topical antibiotic cream applied. By August 17, his wound was healing well around the edges but less so in the deeper portions, Dr. Jess said. She continued to flush it with saline and antibiotic flush and keep the topical cream on it. He started eating more three tubs of worms two times a day, and there are 20 worms in each tub. Yes, thats 120 worms and he was always looking for more, which Dr. Jess said isnt surprising. An armadillo can eat four tubs twice a day 160 worms, according to Dr. Jess. And his curiosity continued, wounded or not. If we forgot to shut a door, he would walk in there and check everything out, Dr. Jess laughed. He got another antibiotic injection; each such injection lasts two weeks. His wound continued to heal beautifully. On the 30th, the antibiotic cream was discontinued as there was no more bleeding or discharge from his wound. Everything was pink and healing. We switched to golden yellow salve, a staple here at CROW, Dr. Jess explained. He was released on August 31, just 21 days after he was admitted. Upon his release, he started right off looking around, as curious as he had been in CROWs offices. His turnaround was sort of funny and not a treatment I would recommend for another armadillo just escaping from his cage, Dr. Jess cautioned. But he was a good guy.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 16, 201122 Plant SmartBalsam Appleby Gerri ReavesBalsam apple (Momordica charantia) is a member of the cucumber or gourd family and is native to tropical Africa and Southeast Asia. Also commonly known as balsam pear, it was introduced early in the U.S. as an ornamental. In1810, Thomas Jefferson planted it in his flower borders at Monticello. Almost everyone living in South Florida has seen this weedy vine and noticed its propensity to cover a fence, tree trunk, or even the ground in no time. It often flourishes alongside native Virginia creeper ( Parthenocissus quinquefolia) and muscadine grape (Vitis rotundifolia) in natural areas. Fortunately, clearing away balsam apple is easy, so delicate are the stems and lacy leaves. But it will come back in no time if the roots and seeds are not eradicated. Notable characteristics include the strong earthy odor emitted when the stems and leaves are broken. Also, the warty fruit is an attention-getter, bright yellow-orange against the thick green foliage. The seeds, however, are a riveting sight reminiscent of a 1950s body-snatcher movie. The fruit splits open to reveal scarlet arils, or seed coverings, that contrast sharply with the interior orange pulp. The leaves have five or seven lobes. Tendrils similar in structure to those on the native corkystem passion vine (Passiflora suberosa) aid balsam apple in climbing, clinging, and spreading. The five-petaled yellow flowers measure about an inch across and bloom throughout the year. Male flowers produce only pollen, the female flowers the bumpy fruit. The ripe fruit and the seeds are toxic to humans and can kill dogs if ingested. However, many people tout the medicinal properties of salves and teas made from the plant.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 16, 201124 University Supporters Meet Haffenreffer Fundraising Challenge by Andrew StansellThanks to supporters on Sanibel Island, the Center for Environmental and Sustainability Education at Florida Gulf Coast University has succeeded in meeting the Haffenreffer Challenge. 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 through 2010 offers original lectures delivered to FGCU and Southwest Florida audiences. The lecture series brings public intellectuals to Southwest Florida and opens up issues for discussion such as sustainability, ethics, democracy, and literature. For access to the booklet, visit or contact Sanibel resident and Center Director Peter Blaze Corcoran for a free copy by email at or by phone at 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, 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 weekend will also include the centers 8th Annual Fundraising Celebration. The center extends its gratitude to all those who contributed toward the its 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.

To learn more about CROW, visit Sponsors Sought For Shell Museum Adopt-A-Class ProgramSince the inception of the Adopt-a-Class Program in 2003, The BaileyMatthews Shell Museum has been able to provide group tours and a one-of-a kind, educational experience to thousands of children in Lee County. Adopt-aClass creates the opportunity for fourth grade children, including those from disadvantaged neighborhoods, to tour the museum at no cost to the school. Lee County teachers who have participated in previous programs report the field trip as the highlight of the school year for their fourth graders, who llearn about mollusks, which are soft-bodied invertebrates that make their own shell. The museum visit consists of a 25-minute introductory film that covers mollusk anatomy, reproduction, locomotion, habitats, and how these creatures fit into the oceans food web. Students are then given four 15-minute guided tours which include a hands-on shell introduction in the learning laboratory, a game area shell identification matching game, the Great Hall of Shells tour, and the Live Tank program where they encounter live marine mollusks. The information has been geared to match the science standards for biological sciences, reading and academic vocabulary building in the science content area. The museum is currently scheduling this academic years field trips for Lee County fourth grade students. However, due to continued cutbacks in Lee County school budgets, sponsorships from individuals and businesses are vital to the continuation of the program. Museum officials ask for continued public support as a program sponsors. The cost for full sponsorship is $450 and co-sponsorship, $300. The full amount of contributions is 100 percent tax deductible. To help sponsor the program, contact Amanda Stirn at For more educational program information, contact Diane Thomas at dothomas@, or call the museum at 395-2233.

ANNOUNCING CONCIERGE VETERINARY SERVICES FOR SANIBEL, CAPTIVA & FORT MYERS San-Cap Sends CARE Packages To Our Troops Week 1 Reportsubmitted by Ted TysonAll of our volunteer troops, wherever stationed, in Iraq, Afghanistan and across the world, joined with our troops in the USA, our fire and police men and women, and emergency workers, in memory of the 3,000 victims of the 9/11/2001 attacks on the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, and the heroes of UAL Flight 93 in Pennsylvania. The services commemorating the 10th anniversary of the second day which will live in infamy (the first being the December 7, 1941, attack on Pearl Harbor), highlighted and honored the memory of men and women from the United States and 93 other countries who died as a result of the attack. Two days before 9/11/2011, highlighting the fact that the fight against terrorism is still being waged, 77 members of the U.S. armed forces were injured in Afghanistan by a member of a terrorist group espousing the same desire to defeat America. In the past 10 years of armed conflict, over 2,300,000 soldiers, sailors, marines, airmen, Coast Guard members and others, some serving their 6th tour in the combat zones, have engaged in combat in hostile areas defending democracy and the American way of life, and the end is still uncertain. Over 6,000 military members have been killed (twice the number of victims of the 9/11 attack) and approximately 245,000 troops, all volunteers, have been injured in the line of duty, protecting us here at home. In a campaign to recognize the sacrifices of our troops serving in harms way, several former military members and many well-known Sanibel and Captiva islanders have begun to do what they can to make the troops upcoming holidays a little bit better by sending CARE packages to them. The first weeks donations have come from a varied group of concerned residents, business owners, visitors, and just plain folks. The first donations (number of care packages purchased in parentheses) came from Bonnie and Linda, hair stylists at Tonys Barber Shop, Fort Myers, who said that there would be more coming in the future (1), John Gee, of John Gee Realty (3), Sandy Stillwell of Stilwell Mgmt. (5), Peggy and Ted Tyson (10), and a whopping $800 donation from the Jensen Brothers of Jensens Twin Palms Resort and Marina (40). The good that we will do has just begun. Thanks for your support. We are very happy that a number of people have indicated they have cut out the We want to Donate form from the Island Sun and are sending the forms along with their donations, and the names and addresses of their soldiers serving in harms way. We are happy to add their names to our care list. Please check the form and make your checks payable to: LMHS Mil-Sup and take or mail them to Bank of the Islands, 1699 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel, FL 33957 as soon as possible. Although the campaign ends on November 11, we need to purchase the items, wrap and ship the care packages way before then. The need is great and youll feel great too.

Use this period to check out situations that soon will require a lot of serious decisionmaking. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Keep that keen Bovine mind focused on your financial situation as it begins to undergo some changes. Consider your money moves carefully. Avoid impulsive investments. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Youll need to adjust some of your financial plans now that things are changing more quickly than you expected. All the facts you need havent yet emerged, so move cautiously. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Personal and professional relationships dominate this period. Try to keep things uncomplicated to avoid misunderstandings that can cause problems down the line. LEO (July 23 to August 22) That elusive goal youd been hoping to claim is still just out of reach. But something else has come along that could prove just as desirable, if only you would take the time to check it out. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) This is a good time to get away for some much-needed rest and relaxation. Youll return refreshed and ready to take on the workplace challenge that awaits you. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Confidence grows as you work your way through some knotty situations. Watch out for distractions from well-meaning supporters that could slow things down. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Consider spending more time contemplating the possibilities of an offer before opting to accept or reject it. But once you make a decision, act on it. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Youre in a very strong position this week to tie up loose ends in as many areas as possible. Someone close to you has advice you might want to heed. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Congratulations. This is the week youve been waiting for: After a period of sudden stops and fitful starts, your plans can now move ahead with no significant disruptions. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Youre in an exceptionally strong position this week to make decisions on many still-unresolved matters, especially those involving close personal relationships. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) The new moon starts this week off with some positive movement in several areas. A special person becomes a partner in at least one of the major plans youll be working on. BORN THIS WEEK: You work hard and get things done. You also inspire others to do their best. You would do well heading up a major corporation. On Sept. 22, 1598, English playwright Ben Jonson is indicted for manslaughter after a duel. He was very nearly hanged, but his ability to read and write saved him. He claimed benefit of clergy, which allowed him to be sentenced by the lenient ecclesiastical courts. Jonson was as famous in his time as Shakespeare. On Sept. 21, 1866, H.G. Wells, pioneer of science fiction, is born in Bromley, England. In 1895, he published his classic novel The Time Machine, about a man who journeys to the future. The book was a success, as was The War of the Worlds (1898). On Sept. 20, 1881, Chester Arthur becomes third president to serve in one year. The year began with Rutherford B. Hayes in office. Hayes served out his term and turned over the reins to James A. Garfield. Four months later, Garfield was shot by an assassin but did not die until Sept. 19. Vice President Arthur was then sworn in as president. On Sept. 24, 1890, faced with the eminent destruction of their church and way of life, Mormon leaders reluctantly issue the Mormon Manifesto in which they command all Latter-day Saints to uphold the laws of the nation and abandon polygamy. On Sept. 23, 1944, President Franklin D. Roosevelt is forced to defend his dogs honor and his own reputation. Critics had circulated a story claiming that Roosevelt had accidentally left Fala behind while visiting the Aleutian Islands earlier that year. They accused the president of sending a Navy destroyer, at taxpayer expense of up to $20 million, to go back and pick up the dog. On Sept. 19, 1957, the United States detonates a 1.7 kiloton nuclear weapon in an underground tunnel in Nevada. The test was part of a series of 29 nuclear weapons and nuclear weapons safety tests known as Operation Plumbbob. On Sept. 25, 1981, Sandra Day OConnor becomes the first female U.S. Supreme Court justice in history when she is sworn in by Chief Justice Warren Burger. After graduating from Stanford law school in the early 1950s, no law firm in California would hire her because she was a woman. It was Hungarian psychiatrist Thomas Stephen Szasz who made the following sage observation: If you talk to God, you are praying. If God talks to you, you have schizophrenia.

The worlds most popular fruit is the banana. In the United States, people consume more bananas than apples and oranges put together. Thomas Jefferson was an inventor as well as a statesman, but he refused to take out patents on any of his ideas. He believed that inventions should benefit all of humanity, not just himself. According to those who study such things, the average American believes the ideal age -that is, the best year of his or her life -is 32. And when 30-somethings are asked when old age begins, the majority of men say its in the late 60s, while more women believe old age begins in the 70s. That iconic symbol of the Old West, the Pony Express, was based on the mail system used throughout the Mongol Empire in the 13th century. However, the Mongol riders often covered 125 miles in a single day, which was faster than the best record held by a Pony Express rider. In Nazi Germany, it was illegal to name a horse Adolph. Unless youre from Central Florida, youve probably never heard of the small town of Ocoee. So you might be surprised to learn that during World War II, Ocoee earned the distinction of sending more men, per capita, to serve in the military than any other town in the United States.

35 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 16, 2011 PGA TipsStretches For Golf by Matt Oakley, PGA Golf ProfessionalAs we age, keeping our bodies physically able to play golf is as important as getting that fancy new driver you see on TV. Golf is a game that can be played for a lifetime if we keep our instrument (our body) finely tuned for a sport that requires flexibility. Here are some tips for keeping your body flexible: 1. Hamstring Stretches Before we do any type of stretches it is important to warm the body up. A few jumping jacks, or running in place or riding a bike for a few minutes will get you ready to stretch. Hamstring flexibility is vital to being able to obtain and keep a good golf posture and hit solid shots on the clubface. The more flexible they are, the better you will be able to stay in the shot and not lift up and top the ball. Stand with your feet about shoulder width apart and gently bend down towards your toes. After a few weeks of stretching you will be able to touch your toes if you cant already. After that you will be able to touch the floor and eventually you will be able to put your hands on the floor! Gary Player was able to play competitive golf until well into his 70s by being the most flexible player on the Champions Tour. 2. Shoulders/Back Stretches Take a golf club and place it behind your back parallel to the ground with both hands on the club at about waist height, one on the left side of you and one on the right side of you. Slowly twist your shoulders without letting your belly button move until you can get the shoulders to turn to 90 degrees from the starting point in both directions. This will increase your shoulder turn which will increase and maintain distance throughout the years. 3. Forearm/Finger Tendon Stretches Stand with your right hand raised to chest level with the palm facing away from you like you are making the stop sign. Then grab the fingers of your right hand with the fingers of your left hand and gently stretch them towards you and hold for 30 seconds. Then repeat with the left hand. This will allow the tendons in your forearms, fingers and wrists to release the club through the shot. Secondly, take a golf club in both hands holding the club up to chest height at the middle of the shaft almost like holding a baton. Half of the club will be on one side of your hands and the other half will be on the other side of your hands. Then twist the club up and down which will stretch your forearms and help release the club in the shot. 4. Neck Stretches Stand with your feet shoulder width apart. Grab the top of your head with either hand and tilt your head in all four directions 30 seconds at a time (right, left, up, down). This will help your posture and help your ability to stay down through the shot. 1149 Periwinkle Way Sanibel, FL 33957 239/472-0176 fax 239/472-0350 www.jnaislandrealestate.comIf you are interested in listing your island property, contact the islands oldest and most prominent real estate company.

by Ed FrankHe taught golf in 34 countries to more than 250,000 people in clinics and private lessons. He is the author of 11 books on golf and is a member of four golf hall of fames. He is senior director of golf instruction at the exclusive Trump International Golf Club. And, at 75 years old, he can still drive the ball more than 300 yards. Dr. Gary Wiren (he holds a doctorate from the University of Oregon) is considered one of the top 10 golf instructors in the country and we had the opportunity last week to attend one of his clinics and talks sponsored by Wells Fargo Advisors. To list his amazing accomplishments in the world of golf would fill volumes, but most significant is the fact that he is one of only three professionals in the world to be inducted in both the PGA Hall of Fame (2006) and Golf Magazine World Golf Teachers Hall of Fame (2007). On the serious side, Wiren takes great pride in working with youngsters, not only teaching them the fundamentals of the game, but stressing that golf provides important lessons in life namely honesty, perseverance, responsibility, sportsmanship and integrity. Humorous, articulate and dressed in Scottish knickers, tie and cap, Wiren provided five stories to amplify the five principles that golf teaches. Honesty The great Bobby Jones, while playing in a U.S. Open, saw his ball move slightly while addressing the ball. He called a penalty on himself and lost the Open by that single stroke. What other sport do you know where players call a penalty on themselves, he asked? Perseverance Dennis Walters faced a promising career on the PGA circuit until a car accident left him a paraplegic. His dream of playing before large crowds appeared ended when doctors told him he could never walk again. But he developed an entertaining trick-shot routine performed regularly at some of the biggest tournaments the U.S. Open, the PGA Championship and the Ryder Cup. His philosophy is simply if you have a dream dont ever give it up. Responsibility Andy North had committed to Wiren that he would do a one-day presentation at the PGA National Academy of Golf for Juniors in Boca Raton, Florida. The promised date was just two days after the conclusion of the U.S. Open that was being held that year in Denver. North had yet to win on the PGA Tour, but come Sunday and the final round found him leading the Open. He held a one-stroke lead going into the 18th hole and the kids in the camp were going crazy thinking the new U.S. Open champ would be arriving in just two days. He blasted from a bunker to within five feet of the pin and needed the fivefooter to capture the title. He paused twice over the putt before rolling the ball into the cup for the win. The academy erupted in cheers. North spent the night with interviews, phone calls and celebrations followed by a commitment the next day in Detroit for a luncheon and afternoon golf event. And Thursday was the start of the Canadian Open in Toronto. Detroit to Toronto was sure closer than Florida to Detroit. But North had made a promise to Wiren that I will be there. He flew that night to Florida to fulfill his responsibility the next day to those junior golfers. Sportsmanship While playing in a tournament, golfer Tom Kite observed that his playing partner (and opponent) was preparing to hit a shot with his feet slightly beyond the out-of-bounds line. He quickly told his partner before the shot was taken, saving the golfer a twostroke penalty. Integrity The entire world was pulling for Hall of Famer Tom Watson to win his sixth British Open when he needed only a par four on the last hole for the 2009 title. His second shot skimmed over the green and his chip back on the green left him a difficult putt to save par. There was a collective moan among millions watching the Open when he missed that crucial putt forcing a playoff in which he lost. But when he met the media afterwards, his first remarks were, Come on this isnt a funeral. I just didnt get the job done. We usually think of golf as entertainment and challenge. Dr. Gary Wiren has devoted a lifetime showing that it is much more.

Most who are sought out for board posts are community leaders they are asked to sit on the board because they are successful at running things. They are often called centers of influence. But when you get all of these chiefs on a charity board you typically also have a lot of people who are used to directing, but dont particularly like taking direction. So there are a lot of good ideas floating around the room but nothing ever seems to get done. To implement them requires those who are predisposed to follow-through and actually do the work. The chiefs, in other words, need Indians. This problem is exacerbated when the chiefs disagree over which idea might be the best avenue for progress. All of the chiefs are used to being right and having their best ideas imple-continued on page 48 Will PowerToo Many Chiefsby Craig R.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 16, 201138 Existing Hotel To Be Converted Into New Assisted Living Facility The management of Shell Point Retirement Community has announced its decision to convert the Country Inn & Suites hotel located at the entrance to the community into a new assisted living facility called The Springs at Shell Point. The hotel, which is owned by Shell Point, has been in operation since 2001. Its last official day of operation as a hotel will be Monday, September 12, and a major renovation will begin immediately to convert the building into the nonprofit communitys third assisted living facility. The reason for the conversion from hotel to healthcare facility is primarily an economic one, said Peter Dys, president of Shell Point. When we launched the hotel in 2001, the economy was booming and so was tourism in Southwest Florida. However, shortly after we opened the hotel, this area was hit by a major hurricane, followed by a real estate bust and economic downturn, and finally the impact of the BP oil spill. These factors hurt the local economy and definitely had a negative effect on tourism in this area. In the meantime, the senior population of Lee County will continue to grow as baby boomers retire to Southwest Florida, creating a greater need for additional healthcare services, Dys added. It just made sense to take this building and utilize it for a better purpose to support our organizations ministry and mission to provide comprehensive residential and healthcare services to senior adults. Bob Southern, director of project development for Shell Point, will be overseeing the renovation of the facility. According to Southern, the anticipated cost of the facilitys conversion is estimated at $2 million. When complete, the new assissted living facility will offer 105 units. The estimated opening is February of 2012. The Springs will be the third assisted living facility at Shell Point. The community opened the Kings Crown on The Island at Shell Point in 1987 and added The Arbor in The Woodlands at Shell Point in 2005. We are excited about the addition of this third facility, said Rita Southern, director of assisted living and resident support services for the community. Both the Kings Crown and The Arbor remain almost fully occupied and with the increased population of baby boomers coming into this area, there is a growing need for additional assisted living in Southwest Florida. Since opening, the Kings Crown and The Arbor have been able to accommodate the residents of our community as well as offer a limited number of residences to the public. The Springs will be a new concept for our community in that it will primarily serve individuals from the public who were not previously residents of Shell Point. This is a positive addition to our healthcare continuum in that we will be able to meet the needs of a significantly increased number of senior adults throughout the Southwest Florida region, and it is well-timed in anticipation of this areas growing senior population, said Southern. The location of The Springs at the entrance to Shell Point is less than two miles from the Sanibel causeway. This excellent location, as well as access to Shell Points comprehensive resident activities and healthcare services, are just two of the many benefits that future residents of the facility will enjoy. The facility will also provide a heated swimming pool, exercise facilities, transportation, dining, 24-hour healthcare staffing, and a professional activities leader who will coordinate high-quality events and activities, educational and entertainment programs, and opportunities for socialization and personal growth. Non-binding priority reservations are now being taken during the construction phase of the facilitys renovation to allow individuals to reserve a unit and plan ahead for their move into The Springs. Case managers and a moving coordinator will be available to help individuals or families make the transition as smooth and simple as possible.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 16, 201140 Around The IslandsShoes, Shirts And Surfwashed Shortsby Emilie AlfinoHow can it be that Im driving to a shopping center at 10:30 in the morning on a weekday and that this is my job? Well, for today it is and life is good (more about that later), and Ill just head to Tahitian Gardens and thank the universe for throwing me a bone. My first stop was Sanibel Sole, and I could have spent a lot of money in there if I didnt purposely leave my wallet in my car. Of course they sell shoes Teva, Keen, Merrell, BRN but they also have racks of sundresses (on sale), shorts, hats, bamboo and shell bracelets, and beautiful, dainty handmade (by Liz Lyness) seashell hair accessories. Swimsuits are on sale, too, both oneand two-piece. One of the more interesting, newer items to be found is called FiveFingers footwear that looks like a cross between sneakers and socks with individual toe pockets. Why theyre not called FiveToes, I dont understand. Turn the shoe over and the bottom looks like the sole of a bare foot. They weigh practically nothing. The manufacturer claims they offer the freedom of bare feet with the grip and protection of a shoe, as well as enhanced dexterity, control and stability. Theyre also said to increase stamina and improve posture, and people use them for exercise, water sports, running, even rock climbing. At first they look like the strangest things youve ever seen, but after a while they start to seem like a very good idea. Sanibel Sole carries a wide variety of mens and womens styles and colors. FiveFingers run about $80 to $110. Are your feet cold? If so, Sanibel Sole is the only store on the island that sells the ever-popular UGG boots. Store employee Susan Young explained that while there may not be a much need for the warm boots among island residents, most of her clientele are tourists from colder climates, and UGGs are not always easy to find up north. Furthermore, Europeans love them. UGGs are on sale right now for $130 to $170. A surprise, at least to me, was that UGG makes sandals, great-looking ones, and even flip-flops. Sandals are on sale for about $70 and flip-flops for about $20. You can get UGG flip-flops with a furry insole for your tender, seashellravaged feet theyre called Fluffies. A new item at the store thats proving popular is called Stink-free Odor Eliminator. The subtitle on the spray can asks, Whats that smell? and answers, Its your shoes! Worth a try at $9.99 for eight long-lasting ounces. Whether you need a lift or a gift, Synergy the Life is Good store is just the place. Liz Lyness, a store employee for four years, showed me around. A lot of new merchandise has just arrived. New items include popular long-sleeve shirts with the well-known, happinessinspiring Life is Good designs on the front. Mens and womens are available for $32 each. Pajamas are waiting for you and are as cheerful as can be, sophisticated looking with floral designs and the Life is Good message subtly placed in script. Coordinating pants are $42, shorts $22 and tops $26. Also new are zipperfront sweatshirts for $66 and a wide variety of very strong and durable and adorable tote bags for about $26. Hats, always a popular item and an island staple, are varied and plentiful at Synergy. The designs and styles are too numerous to mention, but whatever expresses your personality is sure to be there. There are hats with blossoms, peace signs, horses, hearts, yoga, leaves, bicycles, golfers, anglers, beach scenes, price $20-$26. Lyness explained that within the Life is Good brand there are five different lines, four made of 100 percent Peruvian cotton, and one blend. Crusher is the basic T-shirt line with the design on front, and it comes in crew neck, V-neck, shortsleeve, and long-sleeve; Creamy is the softest line they make; Good Vibes is geared toward the younger set with a more fitted cut and hip graphics; Good Karma, which is 100 percent organic cotton; and Good Moods, the only blended fabric in the store, is geared for workout wear with wicking properties. There are fun things throughout the store, and it doesnt stop at the counter, where items will catch your eye for that last-minute addition to your purchase: mugs, jewelry, slap watches for $19.95 (theyre straight and taut until you hit them lightly on your wrist and they curl around it), stickers, window decals and thermal drinking glasses. While I was there, two shoppers who were visiting from New York and New Jersey were stocking up on Life is Good wear they do it every year because Synergy on Sanibel, they said, has the best selection theyve ever seen. On to Adventures in Paradise Outfitters, where co-owner Josh Stewart told me some exciting news: the store is bringing in a full line of Tommy Bahama merchandise in October. They will have a large selection of both mens and womens clothing as well as accessories, candles, diffusers, and CDs. The Tommy Bahama style will be a perfect fit with the classy island ambience the store already possesses and is sure to be a popular stop on both residents and tourists shopping sprees. 703 Tarpon Bay Road Sanibel, FL (239) 472-3022 6719 Winkler Rd Fort Myers, FL (239) 3373022ISLAND INSURANCE SERVICE HAVE YOUR POLICIES BEEN UPDATED AND REVIEWED...

41 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 16, 2011Islanders can never have enough bathing suits, and the store has highquality mens bathing suits and board shorts on sale. Regularly $50 to $90 a pair, board shorts are 50 percent off, while swim trunks are 25 percent off. For when youre on dry land, a large selection of Orvis Surfwashed shorts has just arrived. These are mid-weight pure cotton shorts that already feel like youve worn them for years but dont look like it. For women, theres 25 percent off selected clothing, including shirts, sweaters, and skirts. Beyond the sale shelves are yoga clothes and linen shirts, dresses and skirts priced at $100 and up. A real stand-out item was a Helen Kaminski tote made of 100 percent water-resistant cotton canvas with leather handles and trim and an attached but removable purse for $525. One can dream. The store, very elegantly designed and laid out, also carries belts, fishing gear, cigars and books. An affordable souvenir for someone back home is a hand-cast metal bottle opener in the shape of a fish ($16.95). The card its on says, Caution: Use of opener may lead to exaggerated fishing stories. And that display table that looks like its a bar on the right-hand side of the store? Dont let the owners stump you as to its origin. In its past life, it was the basket people rode in under a hot air balloon. Information is available in the store about the various excursions and outings available through Adventures in Paradise.

This concept is becoming more realistic as many manufacturers of home products develop more and more appliances, furniture, lighting and accessories that can be used indoors or out. People are driven to find peaceful sanctuaries as a prescription for our stressful lives. Outdoor patios and porches are becoming more sophisticated and refined and a living extension of the indoor spaces. Three-season indoor spaces are also making a come back. Creating or renovating an outdoor space has many elements. Landscape design, stonework and carpentry are all critical components of designing your outdoor haven. Outdoor furnishings, lighting and accessories are also an essential element in your overall plan. As you begin the process and consider space planning and design, be sure to include the entire family. You will be amazed at the wish list you come up with. Your outdoor space should accommodate all your needs throughout the year. Do you entertain outdoors? Make sure there will be enough seating for your larger parties. Do you spend time outdoors in the evenings and at night? Make sure you have adequate lighting and bug control included in your plan. Is the outdoor grill seasonal for you or year-round? Where you place the grill and whether it has a protective roof will make a difference depending on how you use it. Do you plan to have your family meals outdoors often? If so, make sure your dining area comfortably accommodates your family and then some. Outdoor furniture has greatly evolved from the folding, vinyl strap versions of the past to beautiful pieces made of teak, steel, rattan, and wicker. Many pieces look just like indoor furniture but are constructed and designed to stand up to the outdoor elements. Fabrics are being manufactured to resist fading from ultraviolet rays, to resist mildewing from damp conditions and to resist odor absorption. These types of fabrics are a must for any upholstery or drapery that will be used outdoors or in a screened-in location. Lighting is also a very important aspect in creating an inviting outdoor space. Be sure you incorporate various types of lighting in your outdoor space just as you would indoors. Landscape lighting, overhead lighting, ceiling fans or decorative side lighting are good ideas. Torches or tiki lighting can also be a charming and functional element to your continued on page ??

Maybe you have a spacious attic that would make a great place for a playroom for all the kids when your family and friends come to visit. Or that unconditioned area that would add a much needed overflow space whenever everyone you know has had enough of the cold weather up north and shows up unannounced. Well, you are in good hands, because there are great alternatives to our large, traditional A/C systems. The system I am referring to is known as a ductless split system. You may have heard me talk about it before. Ductless split systems come in some great shapes and sizes that can accommodate a variety of spaces. What this clever device is comprised of is an outdoor unit just like your central system and an indoor device that is mounted on a wall. While there is some interconnecting tubing between the two, this system works just like a traditional A/C system minus all the ductwork. They even have really stylish versions with front panels that allow you to add images and convert them into wall art. There are great benefits to this type of system, like the ease of installation usually only requiring a day to install. They are very quiet. They are installed without the need for carpenters and drywall specialists who would have to cover up the ductwork on a traditional system. Therefore, there is no construction mess to clean up. If youve always wanted that extra storage space, game room, man cave or a comfortable work shed, wouldnt it make sense to look into what is possible? Bryan Hayes is a Sanibel air conditioning contractor. He also owns, with his brother Todd, an electrical business on Sanibel. He can be reached at

Top Sales Associate was Glenn Carretta, Broker Associate, who has been working on islands for nearly three decades. Airport Announces Return Of Nonstop Service To DenmarkThe Lee County Port Authority has announced that Scandinavian tour operator Comefly will bring back its nonstop weekly service between Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) and Aalborg (AAL), Denmark on December 19. The flights will operate on Mondays from December 19 through April 9. We are thrilled that the service to Aalborg will be returning in December to Southwest Florida International Airport, said Robert M. Ball, executive director of the Lee County Port Authority. It took a regional marketing effort to bring in the initial Denmark flights. We know that our community business partners including area visitor bureaus, hoteliers, attractions and shopping outlets were very pleased to see our Scandinavian visitors this summer and will be happy to have them here during the winter season. Aalborg is the fourth largest city in Denmark where the Vikings founded a settlement. It has developed into one of the busiest trading centers in the country and is also known for its 300 restaurants and microbreweries. The Denmark service is provided by Monarch Airlines using an A330 aircraft with a two-class configuration of 358 seats. Monarch is one of the United Kingdoms major providers of low-cost scheduled flights, but also is a key supplier of aircraft and seats to the tour operating industry. For more information about the flights and to make reservations, visit the Comefly website at ISLAND SUN BUSINESS NEWSMAKERS Betsy Belpedio Glenn Carretta Phaidra McDermott Airport Bonds Are Refinanced Southwest Florida International Airport completed a sale of $174 million Airport Revenue Refunding Bonds on August 4. The purpose of the transaction was to refinance the outstanding portion of the countys Airport Revenue Bonds, Series 2000A, originally issued in 2000 for $291 million to finance the new terminal complex in Fort Myers. The Lee County Port Authority took the opportunity of a strong rally in the municipal market to sell the airport bonds at very favorable interest rates. The refinancing will result in approximately $9.37 million of present value savings for Southwest Florida International Airport or an anticipated $730,000 in annual savings through 2032. This recent transaction is in addition to a July 2010 refinancing package of $119 million Airport Revenue Bonds with an annual savings of nearly $520,000. Together, these transactions will result in approximately $1.25 million in annual debt service savings. Southwest Florida International Airport and Lee County started the refinance process of the remaining bonds in October 2010. However, due to rising interest rates the governing board elected to postpone the transaction. As rates began to fall in April 2011, the port authority reinitiated the process, which led to the successful sale of the Airport Revenue Bonds, payable from the net revenues generated by the operations of the airport. The senior underwriter on the transaction was Citi and the financial advisor was Public Financial Management, Inc. The Sanctuary Golf Club Executive Chef Mark Brown Becomes An ACEExecutive Chef Mark Brown from The Sanctuary Golf Club on Sanibel Island finished all the requirements to become an Approved Certification Evaluator (ACE) in Orlando. He assessed four candidates, applying to become a Certified Executive Chef, as his final requirement. Brown has been a member and national participant in the American Culinary Federation for 20 years. As a Certified Executive Chef (CEC) and Certified Culinary Administrator (CCA) he can now add ACE to his education credentials. He is the only chef in Fort Myers, Sanibel, and Captiva that has received the ACE level. He is now approved to certify chefs for the American Culinary Federation. I enjoy the balance between mentorship versus protg. I have been a protg with several significant mentors throughout my career. I hope I always feel like a protg and being a mentor is giving back to this profession. Our area needs to have a few more evaluators, identify locations to have a test site, and enhance the education for local chefs. Currently, they need to travel a distance to be tested, said Brown. Ken Kouril, general manager and chief operating officer of The Sanctuary Golf Club commented, Education is a staple at the club and the entire Sanctuary team is very proud of Chef Browns accomplishments. Kouril added, This is Chef Browns final pre-requisite to become a Certified Master Chef (CMC) and I know Mark will be working toward this soon. Nationally, there are currently 64 Certified Master Chefs; watch for him to be number 65.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 16, 201144 School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, Do you have any hints about taking tests? My children, who are in middle school, seem to be having lots of tests and quizzes every year and they are getting a bit nervous. I want to be able to help them with tests and need some good ideas. Jennifer G., Fort Myers. Florida Jennifer, There are many useful strategies for test taking. As you work with your children to prepare for tests, it is important to assess their level of anxiety. Some anxiety is normal and may even enhance their performance but too much anxiety can result in extreme nervousness, an inability to remember the information they have studied, shortness of breath and other symptoms. If you note any of these behaviors, you should speak with the teacher and/or guidance counselor to understand the situation more completely and get them some assistance if needed. Here are some good test-taking tips: Preparation Being well prepared for the test is the best way to reduce test-taking anxiety. Space out studying over a few days and review class material frequently. Dont try to learn everything the night before. A daily exercise program will keep stress levels lower. Something simple like a 20to 30-minute family walk or bike ride would be highly beneficial. A good nights sleep before the test is important. During the test Stay relaxed; if you begin to get nervous, take a few deep breaths slowly to relax yourself and then get back to work. Read the directions slowly and carefully. If you dont understand the directions on the test, ask the teacher to explain it to you. Skim through the test so that you have a good idea how to pace yourself. Working too slowly or quickly causes mistakes or may not leave you with enough time to finish the test. Write down important formulas, facts, definitions and/or key words in the margin first so you wont worry about forgetting them. Concentrate on your own test. Dont worry about how fast other people finish their tests. If you dont know a question, skip it for the time being and come back to it later. Focus on the question at hand. Dont let your mind wander on other things. There are also very precise strategies for specific types of tests such as multiple choice, true/false, essay, short-answer and oral tests that are easily found online. Most often, however, teachers will clearly list and explain exactly what will be on a test. Staying calm, learning the information completely, listening to the teacher, and reading the directions carefully generally results in success on tests.

She can be reached at Automatic Pool Vacuumsby David LiebetrauLets be honest, cleaning your pool is not the highlight of your weekend. Its hot and tiring work. Worst of all, it takes one thunderstorm to undo all the effort you just put in. A weekend should be spent lounging in the pool, not sweating to clean it, and that is why Im a huge fan of automatic pool vacuums. The main advantage of using an auto vac is its ability to help you cut down on the amount of time and energy you spend on weekly pool maintenance. If youre not familiar with this product, these vacuums are the underwater equivalent of the household robotic vacuum. You turn it on, walk away, and let it do its thing. When operating properly, they move freely around your pool picking up sand, bugs, leaves, and other debris. Some models even offer optional leaf baskets to trap large debris before it can reach your pump basket. They are easy to set up, clean, and maintain. Also, by constantly keeping your pool clean, they even help to reduce algae blooms and pool staining.continued on page 46 Family Owned and Operated Trusted Service Specialists (239) 472-3033 1213 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel, FL 33957 Fax: (239) 472-3439 Electric Repair, Installation & Upgrade Dock Lighting, Ceiling Fans & Much more Located on Island Fastest Response Time!

45 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 16, 2011 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, Thirty years ago our second son was born and he was severely handicapped. We gave him the best of care, but his care and responsibility destroyed our financial security, our marriage and our normal son suffered because he did not get the time and attention needed for his care. Our handicapped child died at 23 years of age. Our oldest son is married and they told me his wife is six weeks pregnant. On a recent visit I told her I had read a medical article that said some doctors are telling their pregnant patients not to go into saunas or hot tubs in the early stages of pregnancy because the high heat may cause problems for the developing child. My daughter-in-law listened and two hours later I saw her go into their very hot, hot tub and stay for 40 minutes. The following day she did the same. I made no comment and left after my two-day visit. I could hardly leave soon enough. Why do you think she would act this way in light of our familys history with a handicapped child? Margaret Dear Margaret, I am sorry, and I am sure your daughter-in-laws actions felt like a slap in the face and disrespectful to your family history. Unfortunately I have found, no matter your experience, it is very difficult to be a prophet in your own land. I can only imagine that this issue is of critical importance to you. Perhaps your son would be a more receptive audience. Pryce Dear Margaret, I cannot imagine why your daughterin-law would do anything that would endanger her developing baby. Many people, young and old, will not take advice given by anyone. I once heard a heart surgeon complain that he tries so hard to help his patients and many will not take his advice to help themselves. It must have been difficult for you not to say something in response to her actions, but she seems to be determined to decide for herself what she will do and what she will not do. Lizzie Lizzie and Pryces email address is Dr. DaveMosquito Baitby Dr. Dave HepburnI take my Aunt Bertha with me to a lot of functions, specifically outdoor functions.Wow she must be cool! Well no, not really. Shes 5 tall and 5 across. She sweats like an artesian well and her dentures have a life of their own.But mosquitoes love her and always select her over me. So I dress her up in a dark muumuu and take her with me to BBQs and bonfires, and when I go hunting at night, I get her to hold the flashlight for me. She is my own personal citronella coil. For those of you who think this is mercenary of me, buzzzzz off. Keep in mind that she gets free burgers and plenty of exercise slapping at her neck and ankles.Why are some people mosquito magnets while others, like myself, are so completely repulsive? Bertha is among the 20 percent of people who are high attractor types, not to be confused with highly attractive types. Noting that Bertha is rather Rubenesque and tends to give off a pong like a hockey bag in a Phoenix summer, mosquitoes, who typically will hone in on dark, odiferous objects, salivate when she is in the area.The main smell that attracts these flying syringes is CO2, better known as what my sons like to power their BB guns with prior to firing them indiscriminately in the direction of the neighbors greenhouse. Those with higher metabolic rates produce more carbon dioxide, as do larger people and pregnant women. In addition, other smells, emanating from: estrogen, exercise-induced lactic acid and even acetone from your breath, mark you as a good landing spot. Your body temperature, or warmth, can make it worse. Mosquitoes may flock to pregnant women because of their extra body heat. Here are a few other fascinating facts for dinnertime discussion tonight, should that discussion tend in the direction of mosquitoes, Revenue Canada or other blood-sucking pests. Some mosquito species are leg and ankle biters; they cue into the stinky smell of bacteria on your feet. Other species prefer the head, neck and arms perhaps because of the warmth and closeness to carbon dioxide released by your mouth. Mosquitoes are more attracted to women than to men, particularly ovulating women. Given the choice, mosquitoes would usually rather bite a blond. Absolutely true! In fact, my blond friend, aware of this, bought a large scarf for a recent bonfire. (She returned it later saying that it was too tight.) Mosquitoes like to aim for moving targets. The Maple Leafs are bite-free. Biting increases 500 times during a full moon so... reduce your full moons under a full moon. When female mosquitoes drink blood, they leave a small puddle of urine on their victims skin. Adds a little insult to injury. Only females make that annoying high-pitched sound. Mosquitoes, too. The more times you get bitten by a particular species of mosquito, the less youll react to that species over time. Great? Theres more than 3,000 species worldwide. Garlic mosquito repellant is fairly effective. Also significantly reduces vampire attacks. Mosquito zappers may be popular, but they very rarely capture mosquitoes. Mosquito traps that are most successful are those which emanate the same odors, CO2, octenol, and heat as Bertha. Personally I just use Bertha herself, adding, You would look absolutely incredible as a blond. Trust me, Im a doctor. Even though they seem to move quickly, the average mosquito can only fly up to 1.5 miles per hour. The one exception is the one, obviously into the Red Bull, that spent the entire night in my tent last week flying at approximately 1,500 mph. Most mosquito species can only fly about 300 feet before they need to rest. They leave you, fly 150 feet, turn around, and 150 feet later, stop for a rest. A mosquito flaps its wings between 400 and 700 times per second. Ralph Swanson, the man who counted these flaps, will attest to this if you talk to him up at the sanitorium. I stop in and see him when... I go to pick up Bertha. Like the column? Youll LOVE the book the Doctor is In(sane), available at Sanibel Island Bookshop. Contact Dr. Dave or read more at www.

ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 16, 201146 deaRPharmacistHoly Basil Is A Heavenly Herbby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: Im concerned about diabetes. Im overweight, and it runs in my family. My sister has your diabetes book and said you recommend Holy Basil, among other herbs and nutrients. Is that the same as regular basil and would you tell me more? AL, Rockwall, Texas I think Holy Basil a fabulous herb. This herb has been prized for centuries and is considered a sacred plant. It is related to other types of basil, but its not the same as the fresh basil you buy in American supermarkets (which is great too), or the dried spice form. Holy Basil acts as an adaptogen in the body, meaning it helps you adapt. It protects cells, improves endurance and helps you cope with stress by supporting adrenal and thyroid function. Holy Basil is also called Tulsi in Ayurvedic medicine; both terms refer to the herb known in Latin as Ocimum sanctum. Whatever you call it, it delivers! Compounds in Holy Basil have been shown in clinical trials to nourish the pancreas, and specifically help generate healthy new beta cells. These beta cells are the bodys insulin-production factories, and insulin lowers blood sugar. See the connection? Holy Basil helps other cells in your body open up their receptor (their door), which welcomes insulin like a long lost friend. This is a beautiful thing, because it lightens the load on your liver and precious adrenal glands. You may notice fewer cravings for sweets. Hey, getting your hand out of the cookie jar could mean faster weight loss! Listen up if you have high cholesterol or triglycerides. Conventional medicine might call for statin drugs to reduce these markers. Studies suggest that Holy Basil can help reduce blood fats which, as you know, contribute to heart disease and remain a devastating complication of diabetes. Holy Basil happens to be a potent antioxidant, sweeping away damaged cells that could run amok. Tulsi happens to also have antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. I hate fungus. Im all about killing bad germs, and growing good ones (probiotics). With that in mind, consider Holy Basil this fall to reduce the risk of cough and cold. I drink Holy Basil every day, in the form of tea (its called Tulsi Tea), and I keep the tea bags in my purse so at restaurants, I just ask for a cup of hot water and steep it at my table. Holy Basil is stronger when taken as an oral supplement. Organic India, New Chapter and Source Naturals all make commercial brands. As for safety, its been used for eons and has an impressive track record, but because it lowers blood sugar, I dont want you to combine it with prescribed diabetes medication unless you closely monitor your blood sugar and remain supervised by your doctor so he can reduce medication dosage when necessary. Youll find other simple recommendations to manage diabetes and weight in my new book Diabetes without Drugs, available at book stores nationwide and Amazon.

LAMOTTA, MDBoard Certi ed Family Physician Got A Problem? Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: What is intuition and how do I use it?A: Intuition is that hunch or gut feeling that leads you in a direction to guide you. Listen to that inner whisper that tells you to do this or not to do that; go here, not there. We also may call it a premonition, insight, foresight and/or second sight. It can solve a problem in a dream or alert you to any forthcoming danger. The key is to listen and pay attention. Your intuition does not lie, so when you get that hunch or feeling go with it. Anyone can use their intuition, from the businessman making an important business decision to someone deciding to pursue a relationship. We open ourselves to intuition in meditation, or simply by going off alone in silence. We find it with a simple walk on the beach, in the woods, tending to a garden, or cooking a meal. Intuition hits when we are not thinking about the problem because in these times you are using all four of your brain waves in harmony. When you use alpha, beta, theta, and delta waves you have what the Buddha called the awakened mind. So to invite your intuition you must first listen for it. Do nothing. Remove yourself from any distraction. Your conscious mind respects the wisdom of the intuitive mind and your inner wisdom responds to these requests. Be empathic, be in touch with your emotions, and act on your intuition. Dr. Clancy is a licensed mental health therapist, certified hypnotherapist, life coach, author and public speaker. You may email Dr. Connie at From page 44Pool VacuumsThere is a virtual endless variety of auto vacuums on the market making it easy to find one that fits your preferences and budget. That being said, I have had experience with a lot of these vacuums, and there are two that I personally prefer in the midrange pricing category. The Hayward Navigator and the Pentair Great White have proven themselves over the years to be dependable and efficient and neither will break the bank. In fact, both of these manufacturers tend to have consumer rebates on a regular basis. If you are looking for a way to help keep your pool clean and cut down on the amount of time you spend maintaining it, an auto vacuum is the way to go. If you have any questions, please dont hesitate to ask. Thats what were here for! David Liebetrau is a licensed pool contractor on Sanibel.

Visit the Hearts Path website for updates, LMHS Streamlines CommunicationsA new, state-of-the-art telephone and fax system at the Outpatient Center at HealthPark Commons, Lee Physician Groups Bass Road offices, and HealthPark Care & Rehabilitation Center will provide more advanced communication capabilities and better patient care. The new telephone and fax system by Cisco will launch September 12 through 21. This means every telephone and fax number at the locations mentioned above will change between those dates. All new numbers will have a 343 exchange. The new telephone system has a daily reporting feature that helps identify which departments are receiving the highest volumes of calls at what times of the day, so staff can be adjusted during peak call times to decrease wait times and improve customer satisfaction. Our primary goal is to get the new telephone system up and running with no or minimal disruption to day-to-day operations, said Mike Smith, Lee Memorial Health System chief information officer. Our staff will be at these locations during the transition to provide support, and we ask that everyone bear with us during this time of transition. If you call one of the old telephone numbers at the off-site locations after the new phone numbers go live, one of three things will happen: The main department number automatically will be forwarded to the new number for all of the off-site locations. If the individual you are calling rerecorded his or her voicemail greeting, you will receive a voicemail message stating the new telephone number. You will receive a notification that the number no longer is in service. If this occurs, you should call the main department number or the main number for the location, and your call will be transferred. For a list of new numbers, go to www. Cape Coral Hospital, Gulf Coast Medical Center, HealthPark Medical Center and Medical Plaza One, Lee Memorial Hospital and the Medical Office Center, Outpatient Center at the Sanctuary, and the Lee Center for Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation already have the new Cisco telephone system.

It frustrates them when another chief professes to have a better idea. The too many chiefs and not enough Indians analogy extends to your estate planning documents. Some parents, in an effort to treat all of their children equally, decide to name all of them together as successor trustee, personal representative and power of attorney. This may mean that there are two, three or even four children named to make decisions for Mom, Dad or both if the parents should encounter a disability and cant serve for themselves. They may have named all of their children because they didnt want to upset any one of them. But what Mom and Dad dont realize is that naming someone to serve in a fiduciary role for them isnt so much an honor as it is a big responsibility. Its a job. And the jobs a hard one at that. Bills need to be paid, investments need to be followed, life-care decisions need to be addressed, and budgets need to be reviewed. And in most cases, the children lead busy lives of their own. Moreover, most adult children dont live near their parents. They have had little or no interaction with their parents advisors. They may not know where the bank and investment accounts are held, or how much Mom and Dad need on a monthly basis to live. Imagine a scenario where Dad the patriarch of the family has run his finances competently for years. Suddenly he suffers a heart attack or stroke that renders him incapable of interacting with his accountants, financial advisors and attorneys. In his legal documents he has named all three of his children to succeed him in making these decisions. The three adult children couldnt be any more different in their outlooks on everything from politics to money to life. We now have the classic case of all chiefs and no Indians. Not only that, but theres likely a lot of baggage thats being dragged into the decision making process. A time of emotional distress may aggravate old grudges and tensions. And now the adult children because they are all named to act must somehow come together and agree what courses of action are in the best interests of their parents. If this doesnt sound like a recipe for disaster I dont know what is. So whats a parent to do when deciding who to name as a successor trustee, personal representative, power of attorney or health care surrogate? My suggestion is to divide the duties up into different categories. The successor trustee, personal representative and power of attorney post are all mostly financial in nature. Here you probably want to name the child who is most likely to make wise financial decisions. The health surrogate on the other hand, might name the child who is most likely to act as the parent would act in a given situation.Unless its absolutely necessary or unless the children themselves request it I would not suggest naming two or more children concurrently in the same post. Name one chief. You can give that chief the power to name a co-chief with him by including such a power in the document itself. But let him or her make that decision. Its also a good idea to name a successor to the chief you name in case he or she is unable or unwilling to act. It also might be a good idea to communicate your intentions, rather than letting the kids find out after the fact. This obviously can be considered on a case-by-case basis given the personalities involved, but its been my experience that the more up-front you are, the less back-end problems youll encounter. You just might even hear something or other that you havent considered before once these matters are addressed with all concerned. Just remember that when youre talking about planning your affairs YOU are the chief and have the right to make the decisions you feel are in your best interests. Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at


49 ISLAND SUN SEPTEMBER 16, 2011Mobile Ads To Get City Scrutinyby Anne MitchellWhat Sanibel Planning Commissioner called gaudy vehicles those being used to advertise businesses will be discussed at an upcoming Permit Process Review Committee agenda. Reynolds said hes seen a proliferation of these vehicles. I think its kind of tacky and unfair to businesses that dont elect to advertise themselves that way. City Attorney Ken Cuyler said a new ordinance would require council approval. However, the review committee could send a recommendation to council on the topic. Currently, its not illegal, he said, but there are some rules regarding after hours parking and other situations. Chairman Mike Valiquette noted that one business ran out of storage and bought two broken down UHaul trucks and parked them in the driveway and there is nothing the city can do about it. This is something we have looked at and are aware of, said Planning Director Jim Jordan. From page 14City To Change Application Processfool anyone. Commissioner Holly Smith said it would only take a few minutes for staff to Google the applicants name to find out more, or they could log onto the Florida Department of Corporations. Planning Director Jim Jordan said, I can tell you we have learned how to do our job better. We do a check now. Commissioner Chuck Ketteman didnt blame Patel. I think this was a good faith effort by the applicant. This one is a little different. It is not a McDonalds operation not cookie cutter. In this case he was trying to be more localized. Patel was in the audience but did not address the commission.

My coat is dappled instead of the usual dachshund colors. If youd like to adopt a dog that will always look like a puppy, Im your girl. Im already as big as Im going to get. When you consider how cute and personable I am, too, it should be an easy decision to make. Adoption Fee: $45 during Septembers Labor of Love Adoption promotion. Im Candy, a female domestic short hair. Im black-and-white and two years old. Im a very petite cat so you might think Im still a kitten, especially since I act a lot like one. I love to play and its hard to pick my favorite activity because there are so many. I like feathers on a stick and those balls with bells are great for playing soccer. You could have the best of both worlds if you adopt me because Im also very people-oriented. I love curling into a little ball on my back when I snuggle with my favorite humans.

Details of Septembers Labor of Love Adoption Promotion: Puppies $50 (regularly $95), Kittens $50* (regularly $75), Adult Dogs $45 (regularly $75), Adult Cats $30* (regularly $50), and Senior Pets (six years and older) are always $25.
