He immediately began flapping his wings, over and over, having such a good time. Finally, he took off and flew for the first time in his life. We are all very excited! On April 6, a juvenile bald eagle arrived at CROW in critical condition, unable to move because a long string was wrapped around its wings and legs. The prognosis was very grim, as the string had cut into its bones. It was placed on strict cage rest: even though it was fitted with a splint and cast, any significant pressure could have shattered his bones. After three weeks, follow-up radiographs were taken at Coral Veterinary Clinic in Fort Myers, as CROWs X-ray camera had ceased to function. The images showed that the birds fractures had healed, but it had lost some mobility in its foot and the hock joint (like a humans ankle joint). The eagle was moved to the large flight cage to begin physical therapy on its foot and to exercise its chest muscles, which were weak due to its previous inability to flap its wings or fly. He is still taking pain medication, hidden in one of the fish of his daily meals. Hes pretty smart, and sometimes figures out which fish has the medication in it and wont eat it. On those days, we can see his discomfort in that leg, noted Dr. Heather. It is time for the eagle to undergo a new set of X-rays to ensure that there are no continued on page 21 This young bald eagle is now thriving thanks to the tireless efforts of CROWs staff Gulfshore Ballet To Perform At BIG ARTS BIG ARTS presents Gulfshore Ballets Spring Showcase on Sunday, May 20 at 4 p.m. General admission seating is $5, while children 17 and under are admitted free with a paying adult.

ISLAND SUN MAY 11, 20122 H2O Student Ministries Prepare To Travel To Staten Island, EcuadorThis summer, more than 40 students and adults will be spending a week of their summer break serving those in need both within the United States and in Ecuador. H2O Student Ministries from Sanibel Community Church has been able to make connections with organizations serving in both locations that will enable the students and adults to experience other cultures as well as to engage in their lives. A team of 22 will be in Staten Island, New York from July 6 to 14 to assist with a week of an ongoing monthly summer camp. The team, which is made up of 16 middle school students as well six adults from Sanibel and Fort Myers, will connect with inner-city children by teaching them drama, crafts, playing sports, work projects as well as sharing Bible stories and testimonies. Many of the students who are traveling to Staten Island were on the same team that traveled to Charleston, South Carolina last year for a week to serve those in need. Heading to Quito, Ecuador is an intergenerational team of 19 high school students and adults. This team will spend their week serving orphans who are disabled, orphans whose parents are in prison as well as constructing a new orphanage, continuing a church building project and interacting with locals. This is the second year in a row that H2O Student Ministries has sent a team to Ecuador, and they are looking forward to continuing to build on the relationships that were developed then.

$500 Fine photo by Charlie McCullough Payen and Haulen photo by Charlie McCullough5 ISLAND SUN MAY 11, 2012Looking BackThe top right image Payen and Haulen was taken by Charlie McCullough in 1951. This photograph captures the payment of $2 to one of the Kinzie brothers (hes the one standing). That was the fare to bring a load of belongings to the island. The second photograph below right $500 Fine was taken at the same time as Payen and Haulen but from the other side of the boat. McCullough so named this piece because the painted sign on the boat read $500 fine if engine is started before boat is docked. Charlie used to say youd have to had just come back from Las Vegas to have that kind of money. Both images were taken by Charlie McCullough and his prints are available for purchase at the Tower Gallery. Photographer Charlie McCullough

SCCF also wants to add an ADAcompliant ramp to a new public entry on the front of the house so that the buildings are wheelchair accessible. Other plans include replacing an awning window with French doors. The old homestead, at 1300 Periwinkle Way, is a piece of Sanibel history. It was the original home of the Bailey family, built in 1896, where Sam Bailey was born and Francis Bailey raised his children. It is one of only 10 homes on the City of Sanibels Register of Historic Landmarks. SCCF launched a successful $5.3 million fundraising campaign to acquire the 28.3-acre proiperty for $4 million and to restore the home as a place to tell the Bailey family history and as a center for conservation history. In addition, SCCF is restoring wildlife habitat in what will become a valuable wildlife corridor.

ISLAND SUN MAY 11, 201210 JOHN LOUIS SMITHOn Monday, April 30, a great man was lost. There are no words to describe the void that now exists in John Louis Smiths absence. A devoted and loving husband, father, grandfather and friend, he was the core of his family. He was so many things to so many people, but to his family he was a hero. He always had an answer to every question, and a solution to any problem. His greatest desire was to be with his family as much as possible, and they were always happy to be at his side. Whether on his farm in Virginia, on his dock on Sanibel Island or at a restaurant in New York City. He was happiest as long as the light of his life, his beloved wife, was next to him. He was the bright spot at any party and one of the best storytellers on the planet; he could command a room with his gentle manner and wide smile. His family is absolutely devastated to have lost such a loving and generous man. His spirit can be seen everywhere on his farm, from the vegetables that he planted himself to the vibrant glass sculptures that he chose. But mostly, they see him in every flower and in every living thing that he nourished. They will forever live in his honor, and will strive to make sure that every action is a reflection of the wisdom that he imparted. Mourning him are his loving wife, Elisabeth Vegard Smith; daughters Sonja Vegard Fallon and Christina Vegard Anderson; sons-in-law Andrew Fallon and Simon Anderson; grandchildren Dylan Elisabeth Anderson, John Harlan Anderson and Finn Edward Fallon. Countless friends can join in knowing that they were truly blessed to have known such an incredible man. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, May 19 at 11 a.m. at Sanibel Community Church. In lieu of flowers, please send any donations to the American Diabetes Association. OBITUARY HELEN TOOMEYHelen Toomey, 108, formerly of Sanibel, passed away peacefully on May 3, 2012.

She later moved to Sun City Center, Florida to be closer to her great-granddaughter, Kristen. Helen enjoyed travel, shell collecting, needlepoint, reading and especially playing bridge.

She will be missed, but never forgotten, by all who knew her. She was preceded in death by her husband, Lawrence Paul, her brother, Harold, her sister, Frances, and son, Reed. Helen is survived by her daughterin-law, Barbara, of Sanibel, and three grandsons; James (Lori) of Bradenton, Christopher Kitt of Miami, and Michael (Heidi) of Gainesville; one great-granddaughter, Kristen, of Bradenton, and several nieces and nephews. Arrangements are private. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that friends consider taking a moment to privately reflect upon their favorite memories of Helen.

11 ISLAND SUN MAY 11, 2012Memorial Day Service At SeaFor the 19th consecutive year, members of the Fort Myers Beach Yacht Club will observe Memorial Day with their annual Memorial Day Service At Sea Ceremony. It will take place on the waters of the Gulf of Mexico at green lighted buoy #3, approximately two miles south of the northern tip of Fort Myers Beach bearing 220 degrees. Boats will rendezvous at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, May 28 in front of the Bowditch Point Park docks in Estero Bay. They will then head out to buoy #3. VHF channel 72 will be used for coordination. The memorial service will pay respect to all who were lost at sea, with a special tribute to all those who paid the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our great country. For everyone to hear on the boats, the service will be broadcast over VHF radio channel 72. After the reading, flowers will be placed upon the Gulf waters by participants from all boats, during which taps will be sounded over the VHF radio, followed by a moment of silent prayer. Clubs, organizations and individuals interested in participating are welcome but should contact Yacht Club Commodore Pete Oiderma at 463-6240 or peteanddonnao@msn.com for logistical coordination and possible last minute itinerary changes. Participants would need to provide your own boats and flowers. Please, for the sake of our environment, no plastic or other non-biodegradable flowers or materials. A luncheon will follow at 11:30 a.m. at Parrot Key Restaurant at Salty Sams Marina on San Carlos Island. Prospective new members wishing additional membership information about the Fort Myers Beach Yacht Club should visit www.FMBYachtClub.org.

15 ISLAND SUN MAY 11, 2012 Zonta Club Announces Record Profitssubmitted by Dalia JakubauskasWith 2012 shaping up to be the most successful year yet for the Peek at the Unique house tour, Zonta offers a resounding Thank You! to the sponsors, contributors, homeowners and volunteers who made it possible. Now in its 11th year, the annual tour is the main fundraiser for the Zonta Club of Sanibel-Captiva. As numbers stand right now, the club expects this years Peek profits to top $84,000, virtually all of which goes to local and international organizations that work to improve the lives of needy women and girls. The money is awarded in the form of grants by the Zonta Foundation of Southwest Florida, the clubs fundraising arm. The success of the Zonta Peek at the Unique would not have happened without the support of our business sponsors, our benefactors, our food contributors, our homeowners and the many helping hands of the members of the community, said Peek co-chair Linda Robison. On behalf of Zonta, I am pleased to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you. The heart of the event was the four extraordinary houses featured on the tour courtesy of the generous homeowners who opened their homes to nearly 600 Peekers, as tour participants are called. Susen and Jim Berg of Captiva, and Sanibel homeowners Rita and Stephen Jaeger, Ed and Carol Garske and Jack Claypoole and Paul Paglia all earned the grateful admiration of island Zontians for their whole-hearted participation. House sponsors, who contributed $2,000 each, including Captiva resident Joan Sherman, multiple year sponsors Gulf Breeze Cottages, Sanibel Home Furnishings, and 11-year sponsor Sanibel Captiva Trust Company also deserve kudos for stepping up to support the Peek. About 200 area businesses and contributors also came through with their support in the form of donations, ads featured in the keepsake program, and coupons distributed to Peekers on the day of the event. Area businesses and individuals also donated raffle items, food and beverages. Lastly, the Peek would not have come together were it not for the volunteers who donated their time and energy preparing for the event and on the day of Peek. Ninety-three volunteers including 54 Zontians, four members-in-waiting, 17 Z-men (usually spouses of Zontians) and eight helpers from Sanibel Community Housing & Resources (CHR) and Friends in Service Here (FISH) donated nearly 700 hours. Some, like Lieutenant Joe Pappalardo of the Lee County Sherriffs Department, even went beyond what was asked of them. Lt. Pappalardo delighted the club by providing, at no cost, seven hours of his time directing traffic in front of the Berg house on Captiva. Everyone worked hard in great spirits and it clearly was a community effort, said Jan Alden, volunteer coordinator for the Peek. This fall, deliberations will begin on how to distribute the funds from the event. Last year, over $54,000 was awarded in local grants and $18,500 to Zonta International. Lieutenant Joe Pappalardo Angelica Rae Jordan has graduated from Florida Gulf Coast University with a BS degree in finance. Her parents are long-time islanders James and Marguerite Jordan.

ISLAND SUN MAY 11, 201216 Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellThe nature of things is sort of an allencompassing nonspecific topic well, not exactly. Former Sanibelian and now Fort Myers resident Mike Neil and his daughter Tiffany Neal had quite a few examples of the fascinating facets of the natural life cycles and environments of all sorts of earthly creatures and organisms. They were our speakers last Friday. Tiffany has a masters in forestry and entomology from Oregon State University and has worked in her field in the states of Washington, Oregon, and Utah, after which she moved to Sarasota and owned a butterfly breeding business. Mike had a successful marketing and technology business in Ohio but has always had an interest in insects and considers himself an amateur entomologist and enjoys sharing this passion with his daughter. This duo made talking about natural science anything but boring. Before we even got started, Mike handed us a test sheet, but who wants to take a test at 7 a.m.? Not Rotarians! The presentation started with the black widow spider. We have all heard that the female black widow eats the male after impregnating her. Not true, said Mike. Now for the first quiz question: What behavior does the male black widow spider display to avoid being eaten by the female black widow after mating: 1. He does rhythmic drumming with his feet to lull her into a trance. 2. He bites her to tranquilizer her. 3. He sings a high-frequency song to seduce her. 4. He brings her red-colored flowers to win her over. The answer is number 1. Here are some other fun facts about the black widow spiders: The female black widow is 30 times larger than the male; the male is one-fourth the size of the female; when beginning the mating ritual, the male will tap the web with his legs as he approaches the female, this will avoid startling the female and she will then not eat him; the male will insert his sperm in a pouch-like storage area on the underside of the female black widow near her red hourglass marking. Because of her ability to store the sperm, she only needs to mate once and waits until she is ready to fertilize her eggs with the sperm. She then creates a cocoon or several cocoons over a period of time, each of these can hold up to 1,000 eggs. It takes two weeks to a month for the eggs to hatch. The female black widow will eat most of her hatchlings, and normally less than a dozen will survive and that is the nature of things. Tiffany and Mike took turns presenting slides and detailing some interesting facts about the mayfly, cicada, ocean sunfish, bee, hornbird, weaver bird, tarantula, and bower bird. They presented a thoughtprovoking question about each of their subjects. Tiffany asked another question on the quiz, When and why do bees do the waggle dance? Before we had to answer she presented some facts about bees. There are about 20,000 different species of bees in the world. There are three types of bees in each colony. There is the queen bee, the worker bee and the drone. The worker bee and the queen bee are both female, but only the queen bee can reproduce. All drones are male. Worker bees clean the hive, collect pollen and nectar to feed the colony and take care of the offspring. The drones only job is to mate with the queen. The queens only job is to lay eggs. Answer to the waggle dance question: The worker bees have an advanced team called scout bees, one of their tasks is to search for a food source. When the scout bees come back to the hive, they signal the find by moving in a pattern called the round/waggle dance. The waggle dance is a term for a particular figure-eight dance of the honey bee, on an area in the hive called the dance floor. During the performance of this dance, successful foragers share with their hive mates information about the direction and distance to patches of flowers yielding nectar and pollen, to water sources, or to new housing locations. The faster the dance, the better the quality of the food source. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets at 7 a.m. every Friday at Bistro At Beachview, 1100 Par View Drive. For further information regarding the Sanibel Rotary or Rotary International, call 337-1099.

SWFL Community Foundation To Host Scholarship ReceptionThe Southwest Florida Community Foundation will honor its 2012 scholarship recipients at a reception on Monday, May 21 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Edison State College in Fort Myers. For the 2012 scholarship season, 743 eligible applications were received from high school and college students in the five county area the foundation serves. According to Anne Douglas, director of programs for the foundation, 69 scholarships will be awarded for a total of $237,450 in competitive scholarships and another almost $180,000 awarded through the designated and outside committee scholarships, for a grand total of over $415,000.

Young Osprey Successfully Released Back On Captivaby Jeff LysiakTowards the end of April, an osprey fledgling only days after it was first spotted leaving its nest was found injured by a Captiva couple before being brought to the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) for treatment. Three weeks later, the raptor was released back into the wild at the base of the tree which contained its nest, successfully reunited with its parents. On Monday, officials from CROW returned to the home of Jan and Tom Markle with the young osprey, which had been found in the back yard of the Markles neighbor, Jack Cunningham. We always watch the nest for activity, said Cunningham, who explained that the ospreys who occupy the nest near the top of his neighbors 60-foot Norfolk pine hatched three offspring earlier this year, one of whom fell and died. The two ospreys who fledged had just begun to try flying on their own, and one of them flew into the railing of our balcony. According to Cunningham, that osprey eventually fell to the ground and onto his pool cover. He attempted to prevent it from flying out into the bay, but the bird managed to take flight again, soaring approximately 40 feet out over the water before making a splash landing. Using its wings, the osprey swam back towards the shore, where Cunningham retrieved it. We knew it was hurt, and we kept it overnight and took it to CROW the next day, said Cunningham, who fed the juvenile sardines before turning it over to the wildlife rescuers. Steve Greenstein, executive director of CROW, returned the osprey to the Captiva property near its nest, asking for the assistance of Jan Markle to help it be released back into the wild. With a handful of neighbors on hand to witness the event, Markle opened the door to the pet carrier and coaxed the bird out onto her shellrock driveway. The bird took a few steps and paused a moment to assess its surroundings, but with the wave of a towel it took off continued on page 22 After hopping out of the pet carrier, the young osprey spread its wings before flying back towards its nest overhead The osprey was ready to rejoin its family Steve Greenstein of CROW arrives with the rehabilitated osprey


ISLAND SUN MAY 11, 201220 All The Way From France For A Silver Kingby Capt. Matt MitchellWhile chasing tarpon this week, getting a bite was a little tougher than it has been. Part of it could have been the huge full moon we had but things were just not quite right with the tarpon bite. Fishing as part of a two-boat charter with clients from France for four days in a row this week, we really had to work hard at it to get the prize. Splitting up on the two boats to cover more ground one day we would find lots of tarpon moving up and down the beaches of Cayo Costa, North Captiva and Captiva, then the next day the tarpon would be gone and the hunt would start all over. When you do find daisy-chaining schools and pods of slow moving tarpon staying up close to the surface out in clear water along the beaches, its an amazing thing and usually means the fish will eat a well presented bait. For two of the four days I spent hours having tarpon moving slowly by me and casting multiple different types of live baits in front of them without a bite. Often watching the tarpon simply split up and swim around your baits in the clear water starts to drive you crazy after a while. By mid morning the tarpon on the beach seemed to disappear as the sea breeze would kick in and I would switch it up and begin searching my favorite areas in the sound. Every place in the sound seemed to hold a few fish but just not any good numbers were showing. When the tarpon fishing gets tough like this I knew I had to switch tactics and stop doing all the running and simply camp out by sitting on the hook with a live and cutbait spread. This type of tarpon fishing can be slow going but at the end of day two I had seen several free jumping fish in a favorite area in the southern end of the sound and had to give it a shot. I knew I was going to have to tough it out and felt this was as good a place as any to sit on the hook the next day.Ten thousand km traveled and not a single fish even jumped between two boats after two days; talk about a little pressure on the captains. While catching bait that morning I had discussed my plan for the days fishing with the other captain, he felt it was a good idea and intended to do the same. With clients onboard we slid into the previous days spot and quickly saw one free jumping tarpon. No sooner were we set up and the other captain called me telling me he had just got off the phone with another captain who was on a huge pod of fish at the ranger station on Cayo Costa and already had one hooked up. I really had to fight the urge to make the run to the north as I watched him pull anchor and head out. Luckily, I stayed put.After sitting on the anchor for about a half hour without seeing a single tarpon I was now starting to rethink my plan. Then just as it always seems to happen, when you least expect it, a cut bait rod screamed and I kicked into the mode as my adrenaline pumped. I bowed the rod once as the tarpon jumped again and as the rod came out of the holder, I passed it off to the client. We quickly cleared all the rods, dropped the anchor float and began to chase the fish on the trolling motor. Bertrice had never fought a tarpon before but had a lot of other fishing experience having fished all over the world. She quickly picked up on the technique and a little less than a hour later brought the fish in for a leader touch. After another few minutes of trying to leader the fish again for a good photo, the fish broke the line and swam off. The whole tarpon fight was caught on camera and my clients, after days of boredom, were now pumped. Slowly motoring back to my anchor, I felt a great sense of relief. I had finally gotten it done and, after a call to the other captain who was fishing in hundreds of rolling tarpon without a single bite, was grateful I had stayed put. Once set back up with the spread out, it did not take long to get that second fish. This tarpon came up on the surface and inhaled a live crab. After a quick three jumps we were still hooked up and the chase was on. This fish was bigger than the first one and headed towards a shallow sandbar. Lillian only took 35 minutes to beat this 120-pound-plus fish and he made every move right as the fish made jump after jump. When Lillians fish came boatside we gently towed it to the shallow sandbar where he jumped in the water for a few photos and to revive the fish. Even though these French clients spoke very little English, we all spoke the same language of fishing even though we often could not understand each other verbally. It felt awesome to be able to finally get lucky after some tough days of tarpon fishing and to be able to pull it off for them after such a long journey to catch our most prized gamefish.Capt.

Every time that it is transported off island, it is extremely stressful for the bird, as each trip takes three to four hours. Judging by his talons and strong beak, staff members are not eager to capture him for transport. During this crisis, David Nichols, DVM, has generously offered CROW unlimited use of the radiograph machine at his Fort Myers office. He operates Coral Veterinary Clinic, a busy practice with a second location on Sanibel. To spare the eagle further anxiety, CROW is pushing back its next round of imaging in the hope that the clinics camera can be replaced as soon as possible. X-ray technology is critical to the treatment of CROWs patients. After all, they are unable to communicate where it hurts and how they were injured. Radiograph machines are very sophisticated digital equipment; new ones cost approximately $50,000. CROW hopes that by replacing just the camera (at a cost of $18,000), the machine will run again. Its like the engine in your car going out. Do you get a new car or do you get a new engine? Thats where we are right now, said Steve Greenstein, executive director of CROW. We really need the support of the local community. The areas rich wildlife cannot afford its own medical insurance. To help CROW treat sick and injured pelicans, gopher tortoises, rabbits and of course, this juvenile bald eagle, please help them reach their goal of $18,000 to replace the much-needed X-ray camera.

Shell Found Madden Johnson Our email address is press@islandsunnews.com Shore Fishing:Don't Harm The Fishby Capt. Matt Mitchell Landing a big sh from the beach can be hard on the sh. Dragging a sh up onto the sand if youre going to release it is not an option as it usually damages or kills the sh. Hold the sh in the water while you unhook it if youre going to release it. The less you can touch a sh before release the better for the sh. If you want a picture with the sh, support it as you lift it out of the water and do it quickly. Before releasing, revive the sh while holding it in the water; moving it slowly back are forth so water goes over its gills. The sh will let you know when its ready to swim off. Florida just recently changed the regulations on shing from shore. Florida residents as well as out of state visitors need a shing license to sh from shore.


Tree-Care BookletThe Arbor Day Foundation is offering a handy tree-care booklet designed to help people plant and care for trees. Anyone can receive the Conservation Trees booklet simply by making a $3 donation to the Foundation. Conservation Trees is a user-friendly booklet that features illustrations, colorful photos and easily understood descriptions. Conservation Trees is an ideal resource for tree planters throughout the country, said John Rosenow, chief executive and founder of the Arbor Day Foundation. It is important that people know how to properly plant and care for their trees. Taking care of existing trees is just as critical as planting new ones, Rosenow added. Trees clean the air, keep our water sources pure and conserve energy. Trees provide so many benefits to a community, and thats why it is so vital to take care of them. The booklet provides details about the right way to plant and prune trees. It also includes tips on using shade trees and windbreaks to save on energy costs, attracting songbirds and creating a living snow fence. To receive Conservation Trees, send a $3 check along with your name and address to: Conservation Trees, Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Avenue, Nebraska City, NE 68410 or order online at www.arborday.org/conservationtrees. 25 ISLAND SUN MAY 11, 2012 This male bobcat was spotted in the vicinity of Middle Gulf Drive near Casa Ybel Road at approximately 7 p.m. on April 11.

ISLAND SUN MAY 11, 201226 Birds Eye ViewHistory Of The Sanibel Sloughby Mark Bird WestallThe name Sanibel River is really a misnomer. Officially, the low area running throughout the middle of the island is called the Sanibel Slough. The joke was that if it rained on the east end of the island one day, the next day the river flowed to the west. But if the next time it rained, the shower occurred at the other end of the island, the following day the river flowed towards the east. I think the environmental community started calling it a river because people would be more likely to want to preserve a pristine, beautiful river than a stinky, snake infested slough. But long ago before the system could even begin to collect freshwater, I suggest what would eventually become the Sanibel River was actually a tidal bayou working its way into the interior from the east end of the island. Thats why red mangroves dominate the river channel from the east end of the island all the way to the Bailey Tract on Tarpon Bay Road. As the island grew and the beach ridge joined up with the mid-island ridge at the eastern end of the island, the interior wetlands system was then able to collect freshwater during the summer rainy season and change over into the unique habitat we see in historical times. Another interesting factor to the interior wetlands system is its small ridge and swale topography. Back before the 1960s, an aerial view of Sanibel showed that much of the interior looked like corduroy from above. You can understand how this topography could develop if you go to the beach today at low tide, where you can see that there are a series of low sandbars running parallel to the shoreline created by wave action. Well, imagine if you can, that Periwinkle Way and the Sanibel-Captiva Road used to be beachfront property. Extending out from the beach ridge into the water were sandbars much like the sandbars we see on todays beach. As the old and new beach ridge system connected and the island began collecting freshwater on its surface, the old landlocked sandbars started growing the darker green-leaved woody vegetation and the low areas in between became dominated by the lighter green-colored Spartina, or cordgrass. This created what we call the islands interior ridge and swale system. But in the late 1950s and early 1960s, all that was about to change in the name of progress. Lee County had Sanibel zoned for approximately 90,000 people to be able to spend the night on the island. But that developers dream was difficult to make a reality unless people could get easier access from the mainland and the tourists could more easily walk on our beaches and not be carried away by the mosquitoes. So the powers that be in Lee County began planning some major infrastructure projects that would drastically affect Sanibel forever: the building of the Sanibel Causeway, the channelization of the Sanibel River and the draining of the islands interior wetlands. Remember I mentioned in a previous article that during a good rainy season the water level in Sanibels interior wetlands could get as high as four or five feet above sea level? The mosquito control project channelized the Sanibel River and developed drainage ditches all over the island, connecting the whole system to two weirs that outflowed into Pine Island Sound. The weirs were not built at the old historical height of four or five feet, but were lowered to a devastating level of two and a half feet. Essentially, the entire freshwater wetlands system of Sanibel was drained! By the time I moved here in 1977, the interior of the island had changed drastically from a Spartina dominated ridge and swale wetlands system to one more dominated by natural, woody vegetation and heavily invaded by the exotic Brazilian pepper. The greatest damage was caused by the Brazilian pepper in that it created a botanically monotypic habitat that drastically lowered the diversity of higher organisms. The interior wetlands were quickly becoming a biological desert. Just because a system is green does not necessarily mean the system is biologically healthy. Next week, I will talk about how the environmental community was able to begin eradicating the Brazilian pepper and begin the restoration of the old natural system. And may well be once again sometime in the future (dont tell current beachfront property owners this).

31 ISLAND SUN MAY 11, 2012 Plant SmartAloeby Gerri ReavesAloe vera (Aloe vera) is a low-maintenance succulent that produces spikes of tubular flowers in shades of red, orange or yellow in spring and summer. The dangling flowers of over an inch long cluster on tall stems that emerge from a rosette of fleshy leaves edged with spines, or teeth. The plant is slow-growing, with the leaves reaching up to 18 inches long and surrounding a short, woody stalk. Mature plants can be more than two feet tall. Inside those thick leaves is the liquid that gives aloe its purported medicinal properties. Many people have a first aid aloe plant in a pot or in the yard to treat minor cuts, abrasions and even sunburn. Proponents of medicinal aloe break off a piece of the plant and apply the clear gel to the affected area. Aloe gel is a common ingredient in cosmetics nowadays, too, and some people insist on the health benefits of drinking the gel. Gardeners appreciate aloe vera because it requires little, if any, maintenance and very little moisture. Its an obvious choice for a cactus, succulent or rock garden. Aloe prefers full sun and is highly salt-tolerant. It will thrive even in nutrient-poor soil, but the soil must be well drained. Propagate it with the seeds or with the offshoots. Although not native to Florida, it is not classified as invasive. Sources: Waterwise: South Florida Landscapes; ifas.ufl.edu; and floridata.com.

ISLAND SUN MAY 11, 201236 Vep At The Rep Is A Must Seeby Di SaggauFlorida Rep is closing its season with The Mystery of Irma Vep, a hilarious, fastpaced, wacky melodrama that involves quick costume changes and a non-stop delivery of jokes. Never having seen it before, I had no idea what to expect. Im pleased to tell you that this was one of the funniest, most enjoyable plays Ive ever seen. This is due to two marvelous actors, Mark Chambers and Brad DePlanche, and Chris Clavelli who directs the show. Written by Charles Ludlam, Vep is a satire of several theatrical and film genres, including Victorian melodrama, farce and the Alfred Hitchcock film Rebecca. The play includes eight characters, performed by two actors. The playwright stipulates that the play can only be performed if the actors are both of the same gender, which allows for exuberant cross-dressing. Chambers and DePlanche bring the various roles to life ingeniously. Kudos to the backstage dressers who handle the approximately 35 costume changes that occur during the show. Some of them seem impossibly quick. The story takes place mostly at stately Mandacrest Manor, where Lord Edgar Hillcrest, recently wed to Lady Enid, still pines for his long lost love Irma Vep, who was killed by a mysterious creature on the grounds of the estate years ago, or was she? There is also a trip to Egypt to inspect the toom-buhs, also known as tombs. The interplay between the two actors and the way they pronounce and mispronounce words adds greatly to the hilarity. Elements of the supernatural even werewolves and vampires come into play. One of the funniest scenes involves a werewolf transformation. I laughed out loud along with everyone else. Another highlight is the unexpected audience participation. The actors ability to seamlessly transition this into the show truly attests to their talents. The New York Daily News called the play Lunatic fun that keeps you in stitches. I concur. The audience has a blast watching this comic spoof on gothic and ghost tales. The Mystery of Irma Vep plays through May 20 at Florida Repertory Theatre in the Historic Arcade Theatre on Bay Street between Jackson and Hendry in the Fort Myers River District. Tickets are available online at floridarep.org or by calling 3324488.

Blues Brothers Soul Band in concert Naples Museum Of Art Exhibit On Titanic AnniversaryThe Patty and Jay Baker Naples Museum of Art is pleased to announce the opening of an exciting and innovative new exhibition featuring paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, sculptures and scale models exploring a wide range of oceanic and nautical themes. The centerpiece of the exhibition is outsider artist Wayne Kusys nationally acclaimed Titanic, a 10-foot-long model constructed of 75,000 toothpicks. Ship To Shore featuring the Titanic runs through Saturday, June 30 at the Naples Museum of Art at the Philharmonic Center for the Arts. The exhibition commemorates the 100th anniversary of the ill-fated voyage of the RMS Titanic. More than 50 rarely seen works from the museums permanent collection will be on display, ranging from Earl Howell Reeds etching Twilight on the Dunes (1912) to Alfred Eisenstaedts gelatin silver print photograph Ernest Hemingway, Cajuna Harbor, Cuba (1952) to the late Naples artist Ronald Julius Christensens painting Sea of Light (1987-95) and much more. This unique exhibition provides us with an opportunity to draw from the considerable resources of our museums permanent collection, while examining the rich and enduring subject of the sea, said Philharmonic Center CEO and president Kathleen van Bergen, in announcing the exhibition. Of course, the Titanic connection is, well, titanic. The exhibition gives residents and visitors the chance to experience a diverse selection of art during what is traditionally the museums slow season, she added. We have some wonderful exhibitions at our museum in May and June, which will appeal to guests of all ages. This is a perfect time to visit the Naples Museum of Art, said van Bergen. Other exhibitions on display in May and June include the Fourth Annual Student Exhibition (through May 27), Juan Genovs: A Retrospective, Leaders in American Modernism, The Mouse House, Modern Mexican Masters, Louise Nevelson (through May 20) and Nevelsons Dawns Forest. The museum closes for the season after June 30 and re-opens September 22. Ship To Shore featuring the Titanic takes the viewer on an imaginative journey to far-flung ports including Venice, Italy, Cadiz, Spain, Mont Saint-Michel in France and many others as well as locales closer to home. The exhibition also features native art, wood sculpture and various paintings of abstract and figurative seascapes. Kusys scale model of the Titanic required 75,000 toothpicks, a gallon of glue and more than a year and a half of work to complete. Accompanying the model will be photographs chronicling its construction. The Toothpick Titanic has attracted national attention from the Los Angeles Times, People magazine, Dateline NBC, PBS, CNN and elsewhere. The Patty and Jay Baker Naples Museum of Art is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. General admission is $8 for adults and $4 for students. The Naples Museum of Art is located at 5833 Pelican Bay Boulevard in north Naples. For more information, call 597-1900.


ISLAND SUN MAY 11, 201238 Poetic Voicesselected by Don BrownSpectacleby JC SulzenkoSaturday morning, a fox with dance and a feint claims cliffs and shoreline as his own, hoists his standard: red on aqua silk, rampant. We, the visitors, his audience at ringside, watch the tournament: spike-crowned mergansers en garde; the thrust and parry of waves. Waters play restless, even at this no-tide shore. They lap, slap, clap till after midnight calm returns, summoned by the call of wolves. Hands pull at harp strings as wind calls to high grasses, ripples, riffles them. Wild sheaves sway to its rhythms, their heads bowed to melody. Dead birds cannot sing. Their melodies lost to winds that rouse high towers to turn great blades of steel that churn songs and soft feathers. What will children hear in forests bereft of trees, fields without flowers? No songbirds. No Chorus frogs. Only a harsh hush, man-made. JC Sulzenkos poetry and prose have been heard on radio and television, have appeared in a number of chapbooks and anthologies and have been featured at the Ottawa International Writers Festival, most recently in 2011 with the launch of her book for children about Alzheimers, What My Grandma Means to Say. Spectacle is taken from Sulzenkos line-a-day poem at www. jcsulzenko.com and takes aim at industrial wind turbine developments that will impinge upon an important birding area on Prince Edward Point, Ontario. Sulzenko lives in Ottawa, Canada. She intends to return to Sanibel next winter.

39 ISLAND SUN MAY 11, 2012 Assisted Living Minority Reportby Priscilla FriedersdorfWhen I saw the percentages I thought, My goodness me, am I now out of step with current cultural practices? A new book on the shelves of the Sanibel Library, Going Solo by Eric Klinenberg, indicates recent polls show that more than 50 percent of American adults are single, and 31 million of them live alone. Reading this gloomy book on the state of the married and unmarried life one feels the desire to paraphrase Tolstoy, Married people are all miserable in the same way, singles are miserable in myriad ways. It seems the solo scene has degenerated from cheerily downing some drafts at a happy hour singles bar to sulking solitarily in Spartan efficiency apartments. Klinenberg writes, Not surprisingly the majority of people who live alone reside in the countrys major cities... in Manhattan, more than half of all residences are one-person dwellings. As one sociologist termed it, this is the cult of the individual. One Swedish man commenting on the abundance of small city abodes in his country said, Do you know why so many of us live alone? And he answers his own question, Because we can. Also cited as a driving force for this new solitary existence is access to communication; the Internet has transformed interconnectedness with friends and strangers. The author writes, Living alone helps us pursue sacred modern values individual freedom, personal control and self-realization... it allows us to do what we want, when we want, on our own terms. But Klinenberg notes there are down sides, Aging alone is not easy... and at times it can be hard to stave off selfdoubt. As singles approach their 40s, they begin to question their choices; although they often benefit professionally; one man notes, My life feels pretty empty sometimes, and Id like to be part of something more meaningful than what I do at work. Two new films on much the same subject, The Five-Year Engagement and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, examine romance from two different age perspectives. In the first a 30-ish couple is reluctant to marry because of differing career goals. The second is a film about a group of British pensioners who relocate to an old hotel in Jaipur, India. As they adjust to the strange new lifestyle they find an unexpected lift to their lives in an emotional adventure. A collection of love stories from The New Yorker magazine entitled Nothing But You, includes a short story, Overnight to Many Distant Cities by author Donald Barthelme in which he writes, Show me a man who has not married a hundred times and Ill show you a wretch who does not deserve Gods good world.

FREETake Me Home NEWSPAPERSanibel&CaptivaIslands BUSINESS REAL ESTATE CLASSIFIEDS VOL. 19, NO. 46 SANIBEL & CAPTIVA ISLANDS, FLORIDA MAY 11, 2012 B BSECTIONSanibel Native To Enter England-To-Mongolia Road Rallyby Jeff LysiakWhat kind of person would ever want to drive a diminutive vehicle, ill-equipped for a treacherous journey across more than 10,000 miles of largely unpaved, unmarked roadway through both barren deserts and dangerous, mountainous terrain, whose greatest goal is not based upon which team finishes first, but which teams finish at all? James Sprankle is one of those people. The Sanibel native, son of islanders Jim and Patty Sprankle, is planning to enter this years Mongol Rally, which is described by former participants as the greatest adventure in the world. The road race which isnt technically a race at all begins at Goodwood Circuit in Chichester, England and ends in Ulan Bator, Mongolia. A friend of mine told me about it last October, recalled Sprankle, who is currently working at Fox News in Washington, DC. And my first reaction was to say no, because it would probably cost too much money and take too much time. But after thinking some more about the event, which raises money for charity, Sprankle decided that the opportunity to see so much of the world he knows so little about was too good to pass up. I realized that there are a lot more places in the world that I want to see other than Florida, he added. More than 400 teams, identified by colorful and creative names such as Baatar Late Than Never, Single And Ready To Mongol, The Empire Strikes Yak and Fire Breathing Rubber Duckies, are scheduled to engage in this grueling, multi-continent adventure. The Mongol Rally requires teams to raise money to be split between The Lotus Childrens Centre Charitable Trust and the charity of each teams choice. Sprankle and continued on page 6B James Sprankle, who grew up on Sanibel, displays a map of Mongolia. He and a teammate will enter the Mongol Rally, an adventure of more than 10,000 milesIt was neck-to-neck between Team Doc Fords and Team Sand Pebble at the inaugural Ding Darling & Doc Fords Tarpon Tournament held on May 5. Each team had landed five fish and each had performed a DNA scrub. Team Sand Pebble consisting of Capt. David Holzhauer, Ken Holzhauer and Gary Jenkins had caught the first fish of the two teams, and it looked as if they would be the winning team. (Ties were broken by the order in which the fish were caught.) Approximately eight minutes before 4 p.m., Team Doc Fords Capt. Nicholas Fischer, John Landry, Joe Harrity and Dennis Florie called in with a hook-up. They landed their fish at 4:01 p.m., making them the winning team with a total of six official fish. Fishing teams had highly anticipated this local tarpon tournament, the first to be held in many years. Stakes were high for the 39 teams, with 100 percent of the entry fees awarded, amounting to a total of $16,400. Anglers werent the only winners in this tournament, however. It was truly a catch, release and care tournament. The Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission needs help from citizen scientists, and that was the primary purpose for this tournament, said Birgie Vertesch, executive director of the Ding Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge, the tournaments organizer. This was one of the highest numbers of scrubs in one day theyve ever received 32 total. The other main purpose was to raise money to support conservation and education efforts at the Ding Darling Refuge. DNA scrubs help the state agency to track the migrations of the species with a simple swipe of a sponge. Tournament participants received extra points for participating in the Tarpon Genetic Recapture Study. The top two teams underwent a truth verification test (said to be more effective than a polygraph) by TVS, Inc., to make the final standings official. Team Sand Pebble placed second with five fish. Teams called in a total of 39 tarpon catches. Debbie Powers of Team Fishing Divas won the Female Angler Award for the first tarpon she ever caught. The day began with a stiff breeze. Spirits were high with whoops and hollers and good lucks all around, said Vertesch. The winds lightened, seas calmed and the tarpon began to show why they are called the Silver King.continued on page 4BTeam Doc Fords Wins Ding Tarpon Tournament Birgie Vertesch, left, of the Ding Darling Wildlife Society, and Marty Harrity, right, of Doc Fords Rum Bar & Grille present Team Doc Fords Capt.

From page 1BMongolia Road Rallyhis teammate, Sean Miller whose rally team name is The Goat Rodeo have selected to support Doctors Without Borders, a Switzerland-based organization with gives medicinal aid to people in developing countries and war-torn regions. A lot of the doctors involved with Doctors Without Borders are also journalists, who have written a lot of eye-opening stuff, said Sprankle. Some of them have even been to some of the places well be going through during the rally. Currently, the most daunting task in front of Sprankle and Miller in addition to purchasing a vehicle overseas, an automobile no more than 10 years old with an engine displacement no more than 1,200 cc is raising sufficient funding in order to compete in this years rally, which begins on July 14 and ends around August 10. Following the rally, the vehicles are either donated to charity, or sold with all proceeds going to charity. Sean and I have set a goal of ,500 (roughly $2,376) for each charity. By going to our donation website, http:// uk.virginmoneygiving.com/thegoatrodeorally, you can help us reach our goal of ($4,752). Each donation is split 50/50 between the two organizations, Sprankle wrote on his website. The expenses of this trip for me personally are somewhere around $6,500, including $2,000 for gas, lodging and food, $2,000 for airfare to England and return from Ulaanbaatar and about $2,000 for my half of the initial purchase of the vehicle. I am obviously not a charitable entity, but I would happily accept any contributions towards these expenses. In addition, local businesses from Sanibel or Captiva who would like to see their logo placed on The Goat Rodeo vehicle as it travels across mountains, plains, deserts and remote regions between the United Kingdom and Mongolia are invited to have a bumper sticker placed on the automobile for a $100 donation. Those interested in sponsoring The Goat Rodeo or underwriting Sprankles expenses for the Mongol Rally should send an email to jsprankle7@gmail.com or call 239-849-7801. (Note: The Island Sun will be following James Sprankle as he prepares for the Mongol Rally this summer, and will track his progress throughout the 10,000-mile adventure.

For a long time, my business was my baby and helping people look and feel beautiful was my main passion, but when my husband Trevor and I found out I was pregnant with our daughter Kayla in 2003, I had to step back from growing my business and start focusing on my growing family. Her second daughter, Kayce, was born three years later, and over the past several years, dogs Tucker and Kassy and horses Cruiser, Skip, Moon, Sunny and Simon also joined the Casperson-Nette family. In 2009, the Kay Casperson Lifestyle Spa & Boutique opened in Chadwicks Square on Captiva Island, and in 2011, Casperson and her skincare and cosmetics were featured both on the air and online by ShopNBC Beauty. Now that her daughters are both in school, Casperson said shes already diving headfirst back into the business world during school days, at least. With work, kids, a husband, animals and a home, its definitely a challenge to stay healthy and balanced. It can be overwhelming if you let it, but I always remind myself that life is simple and everything will work itself out. From an early age, Casperson knew she was destined to help make others feel beautiful and confident. But after exploring everything from make-up artistry and fashion styling to operating her own modeling and talent agency, Casperson discovered that many of the people she was working with people who were very beautiful on the outside didnt feel beautiful on the inside. This inspired Casperson to create her simple but effective care products based on her personal lifestyle philosophy of Beauty Inside Out, and designed to heal and nourish not only the skin, but five aspects she believes are essential to leading a healthy, balanced life emotionally, physically, spiritually, environmentally and socially. But most importantly, Casperson said that Beauty Inside Out is about loving yourself, a concept she instilled in her daughters from an early age. We have to reach out to young people if we want them to understand what true beauty is so that when theyre older and dealing with all the new stressors of growing up and, eventually being an adult they can be confident and successful. God blessed me with my girls, and I always remind them how beautiful they are on the outside and, most importantly, on the inside. In celebration of Mothers Day, Casperson is offering 20 percent off all services for mothers and mother/daughter groups at her Captiva spa through Friday, May 18. The Kay Casperson Lifestyle Spa & Boutique is in Chadwicks Square, 14830 Captiva Drive. To reserve a day of Beauty Inside Out for the special ladies in your life, call 579-1470 or e-mail to spa@kaycasperson.com. Kay Caspersons product lines are also available at the boutique at Sundial Beach & Golf Resort, 1415 Middle Gulf Drive.

ISLAND SUN MAY 11, 201210B Twice The Runner-Up But Never The Champion, Could This Be The Year For The Florida Everblades?by Ed FrankFor the third time in their 14-year franchise history, the Florida Everblades will vie for the ultimate prize in the ECHL the Kelly Cup Championship. Twice to the altar and twice defeated, the local hockey team hopes to make No. 3 a success when they take on the Las Vegas Wranglers in the best-of-seven championship series beginning Monday in Las Vegas. Florida advanced to the Kelly Cup Finals with a convincing four-games-to-one victory over the Kalamazoo Wings to win the leagues Eastern Conference title and the Bud Gingher Trophy. The clincher was a 3-1 victory last Friday on home ice.Las Vegas won the ECHL Western Conference defeating Alaska in five games. It will be their second trip to the finals having lost to Cincinnati in 2008. Both teams have compiled impressive 11-2 records in post-season play, but Las Vegas will have home ice advantage hosting games one and two and games six and seven if they are necessary. Here is the complete schedule for the Kelly Cup Finals: Game 1 Monday at 7:05 p.m. Pacific Time at Orleans Arena in Las Vegas Game 2 Tuesday at 7:05 Pacific Time in Las Vegas Game 3 Friday, May 18 at 7:30 p.m. local time at Germain Arena Game 4 Tuesday, May 22 at 7:30 p.m. at Germain Arena Game 5 (if necessary) Wednesday, May 23, 7:30 p.m. at Germain Arena Games 6 and 7 Friday and Saturday, May 25 and 26 in Las Vegas Florida skated in the Kelly Cup finals in both 2004 and 2005, but were defeated in 2004 by Idaho and in 2005 by Trenton. When the Florida franchise was established in 1999 there were many who doubted whether professional hockey could survive in Southwest Florida. While two professional basketball teams and two indoor football teams have failed in these 14 years, the Everblades have become one of the strongest franchises in the ECHL. The team has earned post-season slots all 14 years. Florida goalie John Muse and center Cedric Lalonde McNicoll have emerged as ECHL leaders in the playoff run. Muse has limited the opposition to only 1.70 goals per game, including 27 of 28 stops in the 3-1 conference title win last week. McNicoll has compiled 16 points in the post-season. Tickets for the championship series at Germain Arena are available at the box office, by calling 948-7825 or through Ticketmaster a 1-800-745-3000. Miracle Win Weekend Blowouts; Islands Night Next Wednesday Struggling in the early season, the Fort Myers Miracle reversed their fortunes with back-to-back blowout wins last weekend over the Lakeland Flying Tigers. The 13-3 and 12-3 victories Sunday and Monday at Hammond Stadium hopefully will provide the needed spark to propel the Miracle on a winning streak. They began the week with a 12-19 season record. The local baseball team is on the road this week at Dunedin and Charlotte before returning Tuesday and Wednesday to Hammond Stadium when they host Charlotte. Wednesday night is Islands Night, one of the biggest attractions on the Miracle home schedule. The 7:05 p.m. game will be preceded by a parade around the stadium. Free tickets for Islands Night are available at Baileys General Store and most island businesses. Tarpons Thump Lakeland for Third Time; Remain Undefeated The first year for the Florida Tarpons, members of the 12-team Ultimate Indoor Football League, has resulted in an undefeated year. The Tarpons defeated the Lakeland Raiders 55-24 Sunday night at Germain Arena to run their perfect season to 7-0. The Tigers dropped to 4-3. Quarterback Chris Wallace completed 17 of 31 passes for 207 yards and seven touchdowns while wide receiver Donald Fusilier had six catches for 70 yards. Florida travels to Lakeland Monday and returns home to Germain the following Monday against the Rome Rampage. 239-472-2626www.beachviewgolfclub.com (Visit our website for weekly specials) GOLF$49 before 3 pm $39 after 3 pmRates expire 8/14/12.

11B ISLAND SUN MAY 11, 2012 Community Foundation Announces New Womens Legacy Fund AngelsThe Womens Legacy Fund of the Southwest Florida Community Foundation will honor Susan Johnson and Marian Roelant as its newest Angels among others during its spring luncheon on Friday, May 18 from 11:15 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Olde Hickory Country Club. The Angel honorary designation is for mothers, sisters, aunts, daughters, grandchildren, friends and other loved ones, either living or deceased, who have had a special impact on the lives of those around them. WLF members can make the special women in their lives a WLF Angel with a minimum contribution of $1,000 in their name. The gifts become part of the WLF endowment fund that impacts the community through grants that address community needs now and in the future. As former general manager of Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre, Johnson spent 10 years overseeing 19 departments and 135 to 150 staff members and actors. Prior to that, she was head of advertising and public relations for eight years. After 18 years with Broadway Palm, Johnson has re-invented herself, as she and her popular artist mother, Jean Porpora, recently opened The Nest Home and Garden Shop on First Street in downtown Fort Myers. Nominated by Rusty Brown, Johnson is named an Angel for her theatre leadership and civic role as past president of the Greater Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce, the Florida Public Relations Association and the Harborside Event CentersConference and Convention Council. Patricia Bell, who describes her mother as her familys angel, nominated her mother Marian Roelant as another WLF Angel. According to Bell, with her giving spirit and Christian beliefs, Roelantwas a role model for everyone who met her. She taught her family and others that giving is much greater than receiving. Roelant was the mother of 16 children, grandmother of 52 grandchildren and great-grandmother of 51 greatgrandchildren. The Womens Legacy Fund is a fund of the Southwest Florida Community Foundation, created to enable women in Southwest Florida to direct their giving in focused, strategic ways. The funds mission is to engage women in affecting change in our community through collective philanthropy. The Southwest Florida Community Foundation is celebrating its 35th year of supporting the communities of Lee, Charlotte, Glades, Hendry and Collier counties by connecting donors and their philanthropic aspirations with evolving community needs. The community foundation has provided more than $50 million in grants and scholarships to the communities it serves.

13B ISLAND SUN MAY 11, 2012Today, I woke up and went for a run with my iPod, listening to my favorite songs that help keep my pace. I ate breakfast while paying my bills online. I then drove to my office, making phone calls along the way via the Bluetooth technology in my car so I didnt have to actually hold or dial my cell phone. Once I arrived at my office, I worked on client files that are all maintained digitally. None of this was possible only a few years ago. Isnt that amazing? So much of our lives are electronic and digital now, we dont even realize it. Yet this electronic age also can create problems. When one of my clients gets sick and their children need to take over as their durable power of attorney or as trustee of their trust, often it is difficult to access bank and brokerage accounts unless the children know the usernames and passwords to those accounts. Obviously, if you have named someone in your legal documents under your durable power of attorney or as a trustee to your trust, it would be a good idea to let them know where you have electronic accounts as well as the username and passwords on those accounts. Perhaps they can keep those in a password-protected file on their computer or in some other location where third parties wont have access. But it really shouldnt stop there. Most of us keep only a month or twos worth of living expenses in our checking account. Our income might be electronically deposited into that account either in the form of wages, social security benefits, dividends and interest. Sometimes, however, we have larger bills that need to be paid such as when our real estate tax bill comes due. When those larger bills are due, we might take amounts from our savings or money market accounts to pay those bills. The person you have named to take care of these things in the event of your incapacity should know which accounts you commonly tap for those larger expenses. They should also know how to easily transfer money between accounts. Sometimes I see where people will actually name a child or other trusted person as a joint account holder to facilitate these issues. While I believe it may be a good idea to add such a person as a signor on the account, I dont think its wise to name that person as a joint owner on the account for a number of reasons. First, as a joint owner, you have legally made a gift to that person of half of the account, and continue to make gifts each time you deposit money into the account. Those gifts are limited to the $13,000 annual exclusion amount, and if you make any more gifts to that person (both outright to them as well as in the joint account) that are above the $13,000 annual amount in any calendar year, you are required to file a gift tax return. Second, you might thwart your estate plan when making someone else a joint owner on an account. Upon your death, the joint owner would then take the account if it were owned with rights of survivorship. It doesnt matter if your will or trust says to divide all of your assets equally among all of your beneficiaries, because a joint account wouldnt be governed by your will or trust. Third, if the person you have named as a joint owner on the account has any creditor problems, or if they are going through a divorce, your account that you have named them on as a joint owner might be at risk. Fourth, if you ever want to change the account and remove the joint owner, replacing him or her with someone else, you will require that joint owners signature to make the changes. So as you might see, its usually a better tactic to make the person a signor on the account, or better yet, just have the account held in your trust. If that person is your successor trustee, then they will be able to access the account in the event of your disability without actually having to be named on the account. But it would still be a good idea to let that person know how you manage the account electronically. Keep this in mind as well if you have given someone your usernames and passwords, and if you later dont want that person to have access to your accounts, you should remember to change the username and passwords to the account. While our electronic age has definitely made life more enjoyable in any number of ways, it has also added complexity. Please make sure that you stay up with the times and that all of those who you will trust to take care of you understand how your accounts are set up and how to access them. Craig R. Hersch.

ISLAND SUN MAY 11, 201214B Superior InteriorsDecorating Services A Luxury No More by Marcia FeeneyOnce considered a luxury, decorating services are more of a necessity for todays busy homeowners who simply cant afford to make costly mistakes, or run all around town trying to pull it together from retail stores or the Internet. The best professional to decorate your home will most likely come from a combination of compatible personalities and tastes. During your initial consultation, ask to review the portfolio of the decorator to assure yourself that (s)he is capable of working in diverse styles. This is also the time to judge whether your personalities are a good fit. Remember that you will be working together for several weeks, if not months. Working with a professional designer should be an enjoyable experience. Since interior decorating projects are highly personal and collaborative, the final results are always much more successful when the lines of communication are open and ideas are freely discussed. Be candid with your decorator regarding such important elements as priorities, timing, budgets and tastes. If a style, color or item is suggested that you do not like, feel free to say so. To ensure that you get off to the right start with your decorator and also get the results you are looking for, keep in mind the following tips: Be a keen observer. Consciously make note of what catches your interest as you peruse decorating magazines and the Internet for interesting rooms and make-overs, Start a file of colors, patterns and designs that appeal to you. You may notice a chandelier, mirror, color combination or window treatment that you like. Once you clip and track these for a brief period, you will be better able to draw a conclusion as to your personal style. Take an honest inventory of your existing decor to determine which pieces you want to keep. Assess your furnishings the way you periodically review your wardrobe. Plan to keep the pieces you truly love and put all others on the to-bereplaced-eventually list. Based upon your initial consultation, your designer should present you with fabric samples, sketches and pictures for your evaluation. Since professionals have access to a world of options unavailable in retail stores, be reasonable about asking to see more and more of everything available. Remember that the first two or three designs you are shown will be, in the decorators opinion, the best looks for your home. One of the most important services a professional offers is sparing you the confusion of the unlimited choices available. Trust your designers advice and stay focused on the overall design goal. Give your decorator some latitude to decide for you the small details such as trims, pillows, accessories and botanicals. Your project will move forward more smoothly if (s)he doesnt have to get your approval on every button and candle. The last piece of advice is to give change a chance. The most dramatic changes usually come from introducing a strong new color or a different pattern. Dont panic! We are experts at color coordination, and we work with the best painters in Southwest Florida to ensure you get the quality paint job your home deserves. Just remember that all change even vast improvement requires a period of adjustment. Most homeowners who have selected professional decorating services for their home will be quick to tell you, I should have done it sooner! Marcia Feeney is an interior decorator on Sanibel.

15B ISLAND SUN MAY 11, 2012 Park Royal Hospital Earns AccreditationPark Royal Hospital, located on the HealthPark campus in Fort Myers, has earned accreditation from DNV Healthcare Inc., a required step in accepting patients who are commercially insured. The two-day accreditation process confirmed the 76-bed free-standing psychiatric hospital meets all clinical and plant operations requirements of the National Integrated Accreditation for Healthcare Organization program.

Greggs, NCSPDear Readers, Here is some information that I recommend highly and want to share with you. May is National Mental Health Month and May 6 through 12 is National Childrens Mental Health Awareness Week. Through The Child Mind Institute and its partner groups, we now have a week for learning about and promoting good mental health for children. This professional organization, The Child Mind Institute, has developed an educational campaign for this special week entitled Speak Up For Kids 2012. Why do we need this week? Child Mind Institute says Stigma, lack of awareness and misinformation cause too many children to miss out on treatments that can change their lives. Though 15 million children in the United States have psychiatric and learning disorders, very few of them will be identified and get the help they need. That is why each May, we take the time to Speak Up For Kids to let the world know that silence and shame are not options. During National Childrens Mental Health Awareness Week, the Child Mind Institutes Speak Up For Kids connects parents and teachers with professionals in their community for free talks about childhood mental health problems and topics relating to raising healthy, happy kids. The topics include ADHD, anxiety, behavioral challenges, bullying, depression, trauma and social media. Speaking up is the first step to getting kids the help they need. The Child Mind Institute will host a live Facebook event on Friday, May 11 at noon. To sign up for Speak Up For Kids, to receive for additional information, to share ideas about what you can do to make a difference, and for statistics on childrens mental health, visit www.childmind.org/speakup. Ms. Greggs is adjunct faculty at Edison State College where she teaches psychology and education courses. She is also Nationally Certified School Psychologist and consultant for School Consultation Services, a private educational consulting company.

Those few dissenters could well be turned around by your charm and powers of persuasion. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Its time for the bold and beautiful Bovine to shake off the dust of the past and shape up with new ideas for the future. This could surprise some folks, but theyll soon adjust. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Those nagging new doubts about an upcoming decision should alert you to step back (at least temporarily) so you can reassess its potential impact from a new perspective. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) That unpleasant situation you hoped would go away by itself needs immediate attention before it affects an upcoming decision. Expect your supporters to rally around your cause. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Youre moving up and away from that recent setback. But remain cautious about finances. An exercise in thrift today helps cushion a possible end-ofthe-month money squeeze. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Youre still dealing with overtones of pessimism that cause you to doubt your ability to make some needed changes. But the negative pressures will ease up by weeks end. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) There could be some fallout from the way you handled a recent family problem. But those who know that you were in the right wont hesitate to step in on your behalf. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Financial strains ease by weeks end. Meanwhile, focus on cultivating that new relationship if you hope to have it blossom into something more meaningful. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Health matters once again dominate the week. Be careful not to ignore recurrences of an old problem. An almostforgotten commitment resurfaces. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) The emergence of an unusual selfish streak could dismay those close to you. Defy it -dont justify it -so you can become your gracious self again. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Reassess your decision to stay with the status quo. It might seem like the sensible thing to do right now, but changes around you could make that choice a risky one. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Move decisively but cautiously when dealing with a delicate personal matter. The fewer mistakes you make now, the less likely it is that the problem will recur later on. BORN THIS WEEK: You can find beauty where many cannot. And you enjoy sharing your discovery with others. On May 19, 1715, the colony of New York passes a law making it illegal to gather, rake, take up, or bring to the market, any oysters whatsoever during May, June, July and August. This regulation was only one of many that were passed in the early days of America to help preserve certain species. On May 17, 1792, a group of 24 traders gather under a buttonwood tree at 68 Wall Street in lower Manhattan to work out the regulations of the speculative market. The result was the Buttonwood Agreement, a twosentence contract that gave birth to the New York Stock Exchange. On May 20, 1873, Levi Strauss secures the necessary patents for canvas pants with copper rivets to reinforce the stress points. Unable to sell a large supply of canvas in the California mining camps, Strauss had hit on the idea of using the durable material to make work pants for miners. On May 18, 1917, six weeks after the United States formally enters the First World War, the U.S. Congress passes the Selective Service Act, giving the president the power to draft soldiers. By the end of World War I in November 1918, some 24 million men had registered. On May 16, 1929, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences hands out its first awards. The Academy officially began using the nickname Oscar for its awards in 1939. The name possibly arose when Academy executive director Margaret Herrick remarked that the statuette looked like her Uncle Oscar. On May 14, 1944, Star Wars filmmaker George Lucas was born in Modesto, Calif. Lucas was the first director to hold out for ancillary rights, and in the 20 years following the release of Star Wars, he sold more than $3 billion in movie-based merchandise. On May 15, 1982, Ebony and Ivory, a duet by Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder, takes the top spot in the Billboard Hot 100. This continued the pop music trend of pairing successful duos, such as Barbra Streisand and Neil Diamond, and Diana Ross and Lionel Richie. It was 17th-century French author Francois de la Rochefoucauld who made the following sage observation: It is more often from pride than from ignorance that we are so obstinately opposed to current opinions; we find the first places taken, and we do not want to be the last. You probably know that Robert E. Lee was a general in the Confederate Army during the Civil War, and that he ultimately surrendered the war to Union General Ulysses S. Grant at the courthouse at Appomattox, Va. You might not know, though, that Lee had a pet hen that traveled with him everywhere. Its said that the chicken laid an egg under Lees cot every morning. The National Restaurant Association, which tracks dining statistics, says that the most popular day for eating out is Mothers Day. In 1954, Swanson pioneered the frozen dinner when, after Thanksgiving sales had been lower than expected, the company found itself stuck with 10 railroad cars of unsold turkey. Its a timeless truth that many kids go through an awkward, gawky period during adolescence. In the 16th century, a boy experiencing this phase was known as a hobbledehoy. On the morning of a traditional Vietnamese wedding, the brides mother visits the grooms family and presents them with a special plant, representing respect, and chalk that is pink, the color of happiness. The 1935 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to Carl von Ossietsky, a German writer who spoke out about Nazism in general and Adolf Hitler in particular. Hitler was so offended by the actions of the Nobel Committee in honoring his critic that he issued a decree forbidding any Germans to accept a Nobel Prize in the future. History is a vast early warning system. -Norman Cousins THIS WEEK IN HISTORY STRANGE BUT TRUE THOUGHT FOR THE DAYISLAND SUN MAY 11, 201218B

Blow The Whistle On Asthma DayMay is Asthma Awareness Month and staff members of Lee Memorial Health System and several community organizations are collaborating to provide a fun-filled, educational event. The fourth annual Blow The Whistle On Asthma event will be held on Thursday, May 24 at HealthPark Medical Center Atrium, 9981 S. HealthPark Drive in Fort Myers. Multiple learning stations will highlight both adult and pediatric asthma education and control strategies at the event, to be held from 1 to 3 p.m. Asthma is commonly seen in children and is a leading cause of hospital stays and school absences. When children with asthma encounter a substance that can cause problems (a trigger), an asthma attack (exacerbation) can occur. Knowing how to avoid triggers and how to recognize and treat asthma symptoms can help families to manage the condition more effectively. Come out and tour our booths that will highlight hospital and community resources available to both adults and children with asthma. Participants will receive handouts and enjoy creative activities. Visit www.leememorial.org for more information.


20B ISLAND SUN MAY 11, 2012 Advocate Attends Presentation With Canadian Member Of ParliamentNola Theiss, executive director of Human Trafficking Awareness Partnerships (HTAP), and Joy Smith, Canadian member of Parliament and sponsor of landmark Canadian legislation on human trafficking, were co-presenters at an event in Watertown, Ontario on April 28. The presentation was attended by 175 people from law enforcement, members of Parliament, organizers of local human trafficking efforts and community members. This was our most well attended annual event ever, said Chris Oates, one of the organizing associates. It was very useful to learn about both the U.S. efforts, especially in the area of legislation and preventive action as well as to hear about the ongoing passage of new legislation in Canada. Both of the speakers are at the forefront of action against this crime. Banners of paintings done by local Lee County students who have participated at HTAPs ARTREACH program were exhibited at the event. For more information about anti-human trafficking efforts locally, contact Nola Theiss at info@humantraffickingawareness.org or 395-2635.

21B ISLAND SUN MAY 11, 2012 Dr. DaveBummer A Billionby Dr. Dave HepburnI took my son, Stew, on a fishing expedition recently because I wanted to teach him the finer points of how trout avoid the bait of even the best fishermen. Before heading off into the wilds, we stopped for a final meal of non-fish, him secure in the knowledge that we would catch the rest of our meals; me secure in the knowledge that I was about to shed a few pounds. While waiting for our meal, he zipped across the street to a sports store to pick up some bait. Bursting back into the restaurant he called out Dad, Ive got worms! Funny how quiet a bustling restaurant can become, while diners rearrange their seating. But many of you reading this column also have worms and just dont know it. In fact, one billion, (that is a B as in bummer) of you faithful readers are host to a large roundworm called Ascaris. (see below). And while you think this only refers to readers in Beijing and Calcutta, let me remind you that 45 million North Americans share their daily dietary dinners and Ding Dongs with pinworms. Pinworms These wee white wigglers infest 10 percent of all kids, and while not harmful in any way, they can create an annoying anal itch that can lead to some less-thansocially-acceptable (unless youre out fishing with your dad) attempts to rect-ify the itch. At night, the female pinworm leaves her happy colonic home, pops out the anus, airs out her laundry, takes a few fresh breaths and lays a few eggs. This creates the annoying nocturnal itch that causes Junior to fidget while trying to fall asleep. This also proves my point that it is not always the male who is a pain in that part of the nether regions. To prove the presence of pinworms, wait until the patient/victim falls asleep. Equip yourself with a flashlight and Scotch tape. (Cant you see this as a future 3M ad?) If you shine your light and catch her wide-eyed in your beam, then youve made the diagnosis. Do not shoot; this is an illegal hunting method. While this may not be the most dignified thing youve ever done, how many of you have actually watched Jersey Shore? If you see no worm or anything else that ruins your evening, then place the tape on the anal area, thus removing the microscopic eggs. This again is best done while Junior sleeps, otherwise he is quite apt to run screaming to the neighbors each time you reach for the Scotch tape. He could very well go catatonic when his schoolteacher takes Scotch tape out of her desk. Place the tape on a slide and then take the tape to your doctor (after lunch, please). To avoid pinworm eggs, scrub your hands and fingernails (eggs love to get in here) before eating, discourage nail biting and thumb sucking and keep fingernails short. My own mother used to clip my nails so short that my cuticles disappeared, but we saved on Scotch tape. Tapeworms Speaking of tape, these flatworms whose larvae we might ingest from inadequately cooked beef, pork or fish can live quietly for years deep within the bowels of our bowels. A heavy worm load, however, may cause a slow anemia or be the cause of chronic diarrhea. Ascaris While living in the South Pacific, I got to know these slimy monsters quite well. The largest of the roundworms, these worms can grow up to 30cm in length. Their lifecycle is straight out of a Hitchcock horror film, Psycho Worms: The human host swallows an egg. Larvae hatch in the bowel then penetrate the bowel wall and head for the lungs. From there, they climb up the windpipe and are swallowed where they descend merrily into the small intestine. There, they mature and lay up to 200,000 eggs per day! Not only did I frequently see patients vomit revolting masses of these worms, but I also found them stuck in a patients appendix, causing appendicitis. Dad, how come those trout didnt bite? lamented my son after our trip. Sorry son, but we fished perfectly. You just had a bad case of worms. Like the column?

Our email address is press@islandsunnews.com Hand-Painted Ceiling Tiles Are Installed In Emergency RoomTranquility and relaxation are not likely to be the first words you use to describe your typical emergency room, but that is exactly the atmosphere that Colleen Solomon is creating at Gulf Coast Medical Center in Fort Myers. Solomon is a local artist who is creating beautifully painted ceiling tiles to take patients minds off being in the hospital. The tiles are to be placed directly above the patient bed in each emergency room. So far, Solomon has completed five tiles with 27 more to go. Each tile is about four feet by two feet, with different tropical water designs that include coral, bubbles, beaches, and star fish. It takes about ten hours to complete each tile. Her goal is to have all 32 tiles finished by the end of the year. Solomon, a volunteer for the Arts in HealthCare program, says the project is a wonderful way to give back to the community through the arts. The tiles are meant to bring patients some relief and help them relax when in the emergency rooms, said Solomon. The soft and bright colors make for a peaceful enjoyment of the painting that can be seen even with minimal lighting. Colleen is a very talented artist and its great working with her, said Doug MacGregor, the Arts in HealthCare coordinator. We have received positive feedback from the patients, their families and the staff in the emergency department. The installation of each tile is far more complicated than simply replacing an existing ceiling tile. Placing the tile must be worked around the numerous pieces of technical equipment in the room and takes maneuvering to fit into the frame without damaging the artwork. The emergency room is a busy place, so they have to work around the unpredictable schedule of getting into a room while it is not occupied. The Arts in Healthcare program is supported by donations and volunteers. Call 343-2633 or email art@leememorial.org for more information.

22B ISLAND SUN MAY 11, 2012Got A Problem? Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: Why are we as a society so consumed with reality TV and gossip? It seems like that is all there is anymore.A: It does seem as though most TV today is a reality show or crime show with much violence. We are as a society caught up with the Jersey Shore to The Real Housewives of Atlanta, or whatever the case. This only seems to lead to those kinds of behaviors in real life that are not exactly the best role model behavior for our youth. We tune in to watch hostile, belittling, bullying that goes on and yet according to the ratings it is the most watched TV. And we wonder why there is so much anger and rage. Gossip is a continual glamorization of our culture and it occurs in neighborhoods, the office, in carpools, etc. Its no wonder that bullying has received so much attention that unfortunately has led to child and adolescent anxiety and depression. In a world that is plagued by economic hardship, war, fear and uncertainty, it has become common to gossip, rage and berate others or view it continued on page 23B Childrens Advocacy Center Receives $351,500 From CharityThe Childrens Advocacy Center of Southwest Florida (CAC) received a $351,500 donation from the Bobby Nichols Fiddlesticks Charity Foundation. Founded in 2002, the foundation has raised almost $4.7 million for childrens charities. This years Nichols Cup Celebrity Pro-Am tournament, tennis tournament and kids walk-a-thon, which were held in February, enabled the foundation to award a total of $734,000 to local childrens charities. On April 16, checks were presented to CAC as well as Abuse Counseling & Treatment, and the Blessings In A Backpack program at James Stephens International Academy. Funding from this event is vital to the continuation of CACs services which include medical exams, forensic interviews, crisis intervention and therapeutic counseling, commented Jill Turner, CEO. The residents of Fiddlesticks play a vital role in bettering the lives of children who have been abused and neglected. Childrens Advocacy Center, a United Way partner agency, is a crisis center that works with sexually and physically abused children and is designed to be a safe and friendly place for them to come and be heard and help them get on the road to recovery.

A mother and daughter team, Lizzie is a retired RN and health educator, and Pryce is a licensed psychotherapist in private practice who specializes in the care of elders and people with chronic illnesses. Dear Mom & Me, I am tired of some older people constantly complaining about their knees, hips and their many illnesses. They compare their lab findings and dwell on all their medicines and what they cost and where they bought them. Other seniors talk about giving away their possessions, books and collections even when they are in good health. Some seem to enjoy being the center of attention when they talk about their complaints. What happens to people when they reach their 70s? Aubrey Dear Aubrey, People who complain about poor health may be experiencing bad health for the first time in their lives and they are having difficulty coping. Others may have had busy lives and now retired are bored and their medicines and ailments are the center of their concerns. Then, of course, there are always those people who are just plain chronic complainers. Maybe you are one of those lucky people who enjoy good health. Be grateful for your good fortune but please have a little compassion for those who are suffering. Lizzie Dear Aubrey, What we select to talk about or focus on is personal choice. Why some people choose to talk about problems and concerns I dont know, maybe part personality, part boredom or part attention seeking. Also, I do not think only individuals 70-plus focus on problems and concerns. The good news is you have a choice choose to be positive.

23B ISLAND SUN MAY 11, 2012 deaRPharmacistChamomile Has Life-Saving Secretby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: Recently, you wrote about the medicinal action of herbal teas, and got my attention. I have serious health concerns like diabetes, hypertension, pancreatitis and insomnia. JY, Gainesville, Florida As far as tea goes, chamomile is perfect. Ive e-mailed you a free copy of my eBook Understanding Pancreatitis & Pancreatic Cancer. Researchers report that drinking chamomile tea daily helps prevent complications of diabetes, such as loss of vision, nerve damage, and kidney damage. This speaks to the ability of chamomile to sqaush free radical damage in the body, which is excellent. This is exactly what you want to do if you have pancreatitis, too. After reading a study about chamomiles benefits to those with diabetes, I theorized that it must have other benefits for the pancreas. Lo and behold, I found numerous studies discussing apigenin and its ability to inhibits growth of pancreatic cancer cells through various mechanisms. Apigenin is a citrus bioflavonoid compound found in chamomile (and other fruits/vegetables including grapefruit) that gives it a yellow color, and as well as that familiar sedative effect. And apigenin appears to inhibit pancreatic cancer. Apigenin suppresses pancreatic cancer growth through suppression of cyclin B-associated cdc2 activity and G2/M arrest, according to the study published in Molecular Cancer (December 2006). The researchers conclude that apigenin may be a valuable drug for the treatment or prevention of pancreatic cancer. A few years later, in Pancreas (May 2009), scientists published findings about apigenin again, this time to conclude that it improved the action of gemcitabine, a drug used to treat pancreatic cancer. Their results found that (apigenin in combination with gemcitabine) inhibited pancreatic cancer cell growth more than either agent alone. It was dose-dependent too, the more apigenin, the better the effect. Apigenin was shown in a 2008 study in the journal, Pancreas, to decreases glucose uptake in pancreatic cells (you might say it starved them to death). Its what we call a flavonoid, and it happens to be a strong anti-inflammatory. Other studies have found this compound to possess ability in inhibiting several cancer lines, including breast, colon, thyroid, skin and leukemia. To spare confusion, apigenin is a compound found in chamomile, its not a drug. You can get apigenin by purchasing it as a stand-alone supplement called apigenin online or at a health food store. Another way is to drink chamomile, or take dietary supplements of chamomile. There are very few warnings associated with the lovely centuries-old flower, but being a natural sedative, chamomile could enhance the effect of prescribed tranquilizers, anti-anxiety medications and prescribed sleepers (alprazolam, diazepam, zolpidem) or dietary supplements/herbs such as kava kava, passionflower, GABA. High dose supplementation could potentiate and enhance the effect of anti-seizure medications (necessitating the need to lower drug dosage). Teas are weaker than supplements; make your own by steeping one tablespoon of chamomile herb in hot water for 15 minutes. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

From page 22BDr. Connieon reality shows as a way to relieve our own misery. Perhaps an alternative to watching this type of entertainment would be to watch a good documentary or funny movie or read a good quality book that makes you feel good as though you have learned something or spent your time wisely. In everyday life, it is vital to spread acts of kindness and compassion for ourselves and others. Use your courage and kindness on a daily basis and be the adults that our children need us to be.
