For the most part, this activity has been undertaken for the purpose of making the world safer and to provide easier access to food. The idea of altering the environment to make it better for the environments sake is brand new in terms of human history. There is a currently a general discussion about the ecological benefits of artificial structures in locations with natural coral reefs. The notion is that they concentrate fish population in locations that are known to fishermen. Since we do not have a natural reef in Lee County, the efforts to create artificial reefs create truly new housing for marine life. The USS Mohawk will provide a multilevel environment for numerous species. A wide variety of reef fish at the top, which starts at about 35 feet; a zone which still has enough natural sunlight to support continued on page 32 Underwater structures provide countless gathering points for marine life Snappy Shrimp Week At Sanibel Sea Schoolsubmitted by Jenna SullivanWhen youre driving over the bridge to the first causeway Island and the tide is low, look east. You might see a small, crescent-shaped island poking out of San Carlos Bay. Usually, this island is a relatively quiet sandbar, populated occasionally by wading birds, sea hares or crabs. Last week, however, you might have seen a small crowd of (small) people on the island, doing something curious: sticking one ear in the water. These were the staff and campers at Sanibel Sea Schools Snappy Shrimp Week, and they were listening for the sound of snapping shrimp. Last weeks camp was all about the sounds marine creatures make and why they continued on page 25Community Players Production Of Simon Hit Coming To Strauss Theater BIG ARTS Community Players at Herb Strauss Theater will perform Neil Simons The Star-Spangled Girl at 8 p.m. on July 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 14, 19, 20 and 21. continued on page 26 Catherine Main takes her first surfing ride ever Jason Boeckman, Kelly Greten and Bianca De Sanctis rehearse a scene from The StarSpangled Girl


ISLAND SUN JUNE 22, 20122 Throughout the Sanibel Historical Museum & Villages seven buildings are binders inviting visitors to share their memories of Sanibel as long-time residents, as visitors of many years, as students at the Old Schoolhouse or whatever moves them to record their Sanibel experiences. Loose-leaf pages (themselves a reminder of times past, having come into use around 1900) and pens are provided, and thats all one needs to bring the past alive. From an Orlando, Florida visitor: I remember coming over on the ferry back in the early 1950s with our four children. It was a treat for them to drive to the old store and wait for it to open at 4 p.m. on Sunday afternoon so they could get a treat. From a Charlotte, North Carolina visitor: I am a fourth generation islander. I was born at Lee Memorial in Fort Myers. My great-grandparents moved to Sanibel in 1952 when my granddad was 15. My granddad, James Pickens, ran Photo Sanibel for years (which is now the Island Bookshop) and my mom grew up here as well. I went to third grade and part of fourth at The Sanibel School. And this trip (2010), my boyfriend proposed on Captiva at sunset. Sanibel is a special place for the Pickens family. From a visitor in April 2010: My parents were married at Casa Ybel in 1947. We lived on the island until I was 18 months. My Uncle Jack, known as the Old Goat, had a restaurant called Jacks Place. He built a bomb shelter next to the restaurant. Uncle Jacks wife was Gertrude. She helped him run the restaurant. My mother cooked at the restaurant at various times over the years. Jack and Gertrude had two daughters, Mary and Martha. Mary married Dewey Miller and Martha married Ralph Woodring, Esperanzas son. Uncle Jack was retired from the Marines and was a martial arts expert. From a Springville, New York visitor: I recall in the mid-1970s as a child exploring the end of Bailey Road where this building (the villages Old Bailey Store) stood, not realizing the site was so filled with history. I remember some old pilings leftover from the ferry wharf, with a gull sitting on top. This was a scene my mother painted about then, one of the first of many over the years. I have fond memories of stays at the Island Inn, the beach, dining hall (dinner jackets!) and the cheerful staff of those days (the Rushworths). I remember early conservation education with George Campbell, his easy way of teaching as he walked and how to observe the subtleties of nature. Remembrances become more dear with time. Thanks for your efforts with the museum. Read more about peoples experiences living on and visiting Sanibel at the Sanibel Historical Museum & Village.

BIRTH ANNOUNCEMENT Christine and Ray JudahCaptiva recently welcomed Lee County Commissioner Ray Judah and his wife Christine to the island. Happy anniversary! Strickland, in her second novel, e ectively combines the earnestness of Frank Capras Its a Wonderful Life with the didactic voice of e Secret. With its timely, relatable story peppered liberally with pop-culture references and religious conviction, Stricklands novel should strike a chord with readers who will relate to Annies struggles and search for a happier future. A lesson in faith and the power of positive thinking, all nestled within a satisfying story.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 22, 20128 The People Prevail Againby Barbara Joy Cooley, president, Committee of the IslandsIt is turning out to be a good year for the will of the people on Sanibel. First, as Larry Schopp described in his April 13, 2012, commentary, Close Call for the Will of the People, the Peoples Choice Charter amendments survived due to a state legislative amendment to the Community Planning Act that was passed and signed into law on April 6. And now, the JN Ding Darling Alternative Transportation project has been changed due to citizen input, or rather, outrage about earlier, draft proposals to bring circulating buses onto Sanibel. On April 8, 2011, I published a commentary called Buses preferred on Sanibel? Preferred by whom?, about those earlier proposals. Subsequently, on April 13, 2011, Sanibel citizens turned out in force at a public meeting about the alternative transportation plan to voice their objections to the circulating buses. Because citizens spoke out, the plan has been substantially revised over the past year to eliminate the circulating buses, and to focus instead on projects that will enhance pedestrian and cyclist experiences in the wildlife refuge. The revised plan was presented to the citizens of Sanibel at an open house on March 29, 2012. Then City Council heard a presentation about the revised plan at its June meeting. Details of the plan can be viewed on the website www.dingdarlingtransportation.com It took years for the voice of the people to be heard in the planning for this project. At the Committee of the Islands, we began speaking out about it in January of 2008, when this transportation study was in its earlier stages. We are still disappointed that the data collection that was promised in the early stages of the project never happened, despite the nearly $2 million in taxpayers dollars that have been spent. However, we are satisfied that the proposed plans now more closely adhere to the goals of protecting the environment, optimizing refuge visitor circulation, and improving bicycle and pedestrian connections. Congratulations, Sanibel. Youve been heard. To read our past commentaries on island issues, please visit our web site at www.coti.org. We invite your input on this and other issues affecting our islands. You can send us an email at coti@coti.org, or visit Committee of the Islands on Facebook.

OF JULY! Voter Registration Deadline July 16As part of its ongoing efforts to get out the vote, the League of Women Voters of Florida wants to remind voters that the deadline to register to vote in the August 14 primary election is July 16. Floridas primary election has never been held this early. Given the changes in the states elections laws, the league encourages Florida voters to call their local supervisor of elections to check their voter registration status and, if necessary, update it, said Charley Williams, LWVF voter services chair. This is particularly important for voters who have recently moved or changed their name. If you plan to vote by mail, call your supervisor to renew your vote-by-mail request and make sure your ballot arrives in time for the election. In addition to its BeReadyToVote.org website, LWVF has also partnered with Microsoft to offer smartphone users a quick and simple way to connect to their supervisors office. The league has created a unique smartphone tag that, when scanned, connects voters to a mobile website where they can access the Florida Division of Elections database to check their voter status. For more information about the upcoming elections and voter registration, visit www.BeReadyToVote.org. Spanish speakers can visit www.VamosAVotar. org.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 22, 201210 Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellGday mate! Well, thats how we expected Rotarian, Adair Heath to greet us when he was called to the podium to speak to our Rotary Club, at the last meeting. Heath was to give us some insight into who he is and his journey through life, up to this point. The expectation of hearing some Australian slang came from the fact that he and his wife Carol had lived and worked in Australia from 1996 to 2008. He was born in Atlanta, Georgia, went to Emory University, New York, for three years and transferred to Stanford University, California, where he received his BA and MD and then back to New York for an internship in Adult, Child-Adolescent Residency Training at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, from 1964 to 1969. He then took on the responsibility of Director of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry from 1970-96. But then he sort of took us in a different direction than we expected. He, his wife and his two sons moved to Maine. They got into organic gardening and growing their own vegetables, storing them in the root cellar. They cut and stacked their firewood for the woodstove.Heath wasnt into hunting or skiing but he liked outdoor time in the winter. So he and a group of his guy friends decided the manly art of winter camping, was for them. The outdoor adventure started with 12 guys and although now down to a precious few, they still enjoy climbing into their mummy sleeping bags and enjoying this invigorating pursuit. Heath didnt confess to any particular reasoning for these adventures except for the challenge and comradery. Whatever it was, for these friends its a pleasant, challenging experience. Whatever it is, he makes time in his schedule to continue joining his friends every year for a few nights in the middle of winter for this most unusual activity. Switching gears again for an another directional shift in his life story, Heath went on to the more serious side of his life. He became the first Certified Director of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry for the State of Maine. He developed a training program for this medical specialty but through the years this profession saw a lot of changes. State mental health hospitals were being closed and drugs became the answer rather than other avenues of treatment. There was a cost shift from state government to federal government for services in mental health. Insurance companies had become the decision-makers on the time the doctors could spend with patience. Roll them in, roll them out 15 minutes per patient. Children and adolescents needed better treatment and this wasnt being recognized. Heath needed a change to invigorate himself (he was getting discouraged with the system) and when an offer came to take a position in Australia, he decided now that the children were grown, it was time for a move. Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda off to Hobart, Tasmania. He served as the director of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry in Hobart from 1996-98, He was director of in-patient Child and Adolescent Psychiatry in Brisbane, Queensland in 1998-2008, and surveyor for the Australian equivalent of the Joint Commission, accrediting hospitals and out-patient units on safety and quality of care across all Australia. He mentioned that Australia has a universal healthcare system, although some individuals still opt to pay for their own personal healthcare needs. He and his wife seemed to blossom in Australia, becoming more native then some of the natives. But eventually they realized it was time to come back to the states to be near the grandchildren. Heath has worked on a part-time basis here in Lee County over the last few years and currently sits on the board of FISH on Sanibel. The speaker at next weeks meeting will be Rotarian Alex Werner, president of the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village. He will be speaking about his recent trip to Cuba. 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. Dr. Adair Heath $25K Donation Made To Heights Foundation By San-Cap RotaryThe Rotary Club of Sanibel-Captiva recently made a $25,000 donation to the building fund for The Heights Foundations Cultural Arts & Community Center. The gift is one of several recent donations that finish the capital campaign to complete construction of the $5.7 million building. Construction will resume in early July. When complete, The Heights Center will be a place for all residents of Harlem Heights to gather and grow. Education, opportunity, health and wellness, and access to the arts will create pathways for self-sufficiency and community development. Many of those who live in the Harlem Heights are the backbone of service workers on Sanibel and Captiva Islands, said John Grey, incoming president of the Rotary Club of Sanibel-Captiva. Community service is one of the major activities which Rotarians undertake to improve the quality of life in their community. We believe in helping our neighbors build a better life for their families. The Heights Foundation is a 501(c)3 grassroots organization that works to build strong, self-sufficient families in the Harlem Heights neighborhood. The Foundations mission is to promote family and community development, support education, health and wellness, and provide the benefits of enrichment, expressive and cultural arts. We are most grateful to this outstanding community organization. Because of their support, we will resume construction of the building in early July, said Kathryn Kelly, Heights Foundation founder and executive director.Harlem Heights was originally settled as a rural agricultural community. Approximately 1,200 children live in a mixture of single-family homes and multi-family apartments. Families are not able to easily access family support services located in downtown Fort Myers, and benefit greatly from programs located within the neighborhood.

During that time the Lions screening team have referred many adults and children for further examination due to suspected glaucoma problems, elevated blood glucose and/or pressure levels or hearing loss, said Tom Rothman, who heads up the team. The equipment that the screening team had been using over the years had to be borrowed from other Lions organizations in Lee and Collier counties and limited some of the screens needed. But three years ago, the Sanibel-Captiva Lions began investing some of the proceeds from their many fund-raising activities into screening equipment. The first involved devices for measuring blood pressure and equipment to check blood glucose as well as certification training for team members. Just this month, the Sanibel-Captiva Lions invested $5,000 in a Visual Fields Tester, a very sensitive piece of equipment that checks peripheral vision, the loss of which is a primary symptom that damage caused by a disease like glaucoma has taken place. Last year, the Sanibel-Captiva Lions invested $4,800 in an air-puff tonometer for measuring eye pressure, a predictive test that is an indicator of possible future damage from glaucoma. Two years ago, the Sanibel-Captiva Lions invested $3,600 in an EroScan, a device for screening hearing. Because it does the screening automatically using otoacoustic emissions, it is especially useful for children. Since no response is necessary, children as young as six months can be successfully tested. These screens have been chosen because the problems are insidious, stated Rothman. A person can live with diabetes or glaucoma or high blood pressure for many years before actual symptoms become so severe that they are finally noticed. By then, irreversible vision or other damage may have occurred and without treatment, blindness is possible. This is most definitely money well spent, he added. Other members of the screening team are Bruce Avery, Jim Graham, Tom Krekel, Dr. Phil Marks, Susie Marks, Dr. Kurt Peters, Dr. Nilou Peters, Bill Sartoris, Dick Travis and George Veillette.

Please give me a PB&J sandwich. With a dwindling supply available to area food pantries, during June, St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church on Sanibel is collecting donations of peanut butter and jelly. This food drive will ensure nourishing lunches for many children in South Fort Myers who are out of school for the summer. The stack of peanut butter and jelly in the church has been growing rapidly with over 200 jars collected to date. As the donations pile up there is excitement knowing that the nearly empty shelves at the South Fort Myers Food Pantry will soon be restocked. The pantry, affiliated with the Harry Chapin Food Bank, opened in 2008 and is located at Cypress Lake Presbyterian Church in Fort Myers. It is a coalition of 12 area churches and organizations which together provide volunteer workers, food, and financial support. Open every Monday morning and evening, it provides canned goods, meat, and fresh produce for over 100 families a week. A new permanent food pantry building, under construction at the rear of the church, will open soon. St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church is located at 2304 Periwinkle Way on Sanibel. Donations can be dropped off on the tables in the chapel or the church office. Rev. Dr Ellen Sloan and Michael OBrien Church Officials Elected To Statewide OfficeThree delegates the Reverend Dr. John H. Danner, the Reverend Deborah Kunkel and Dr. Fred Gobel, all from the Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ attended the 2012 annual meeting of the Florida Conference of the United Church of Christ held in Vero Beach the weekend of May 4 and 5. The Florida Conference of the United Church of Christ is comprised of one hundred churches throughout the state. The keynote speaker for the meeting, the Rev. Brian McLaren, addressed the gathered representatives on the future of the Christian church. McLaren, author of several books, most recently, Naked Spirituality, based some of his remarks on a passage from the Acts of the Apostles. In addition to McLarens remarks, the delegates attended a number of workshops ranging from Ministry with Youth to Ministry with Seniors. Various business items filled the meetings agenda, including a resolution dealing with the Stand Your Ground Law. A budget for the upcoming fiscal year was adopted and officers and board and committee members were elected. Among those newly elected to serve at the state level were two members of the Sanibel congregation. Peg Hulit, a lay member and chair of the congregations membership committee, was elected to serve on the Florida conference board of directors, and Dr. Danner, the congregations senior pastor, was elected to serve on the Florida conference committee on church and ministry (the credentialing body of the conference). Hulit and Danner, join another church member already serving at the state level, the Rev. Tom Brenner, who is on the committee on church and ministry. Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ is located at 2050 Periwinkle Way on Sanibel. Call 472-0497 for more information. Rev. Dr. John H. Danner Dr. Fred Gobel Peg Hulit

Larson, who will continue her studies in Marine Science at FGCU this fall, is a native of Cape Coral. She plans to spend her summer helping to classify and accession shells into the museums collections. She has a strong interest in marine biology and is considering her career options as she works with other volunteers from the museum. Miller, originally from Plainfield, Indiana, studies biology at Purdue University. He and his family frequently visited Sanibel for vacations and his interest in biology led him back to volunteer for the month of June at the shell museum. Like Larson, Miller will work with the collections and help with the classification of collection holdings. Hammond, a senior studying Marine Science at FGCU, is also interning with the museum for the summer. The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum board, staff and volunteers are all engaged in ensuring that all of these valuable young volunteers get a great educational experience during their summer on Sanibel.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 22, 201220 Fish The Beaches For Best Varietyby Capt. Matt MitchellSight fishing for snook out along the beaches was a good bet this week. Strong east winds made the beach the calmest place to be once you made it out through the passes. Fishing from Blind Pass north to Johnson Shoals, schools of snook were easy to spot cruising right up against the sand. Live shiners thrown out in front of the cruising fish caught snook after snook. Most are around 24 inches and a blast to catch-and-release on light tackle. Along with the snook on the beach there are also lots of keeper-size trout. Any place you find hangs, rocks, ledges and downed trees, you will catch fish. Often the snook and trout are mixed in together or at least close together. The very north end of Sanibel, basically just the last mile or so before Blind Pass, has been a good area to get in on the action from the shore. Redfish action in the sound during the mid-morning high tides made for smiling faces most of the week. With the live shrimp of summer getting so small, I switched it up and bought a few five-pound blocks of frozen jumbo bait shrimp. After hitting a spot with cut bait and pinfish, it sometimes takes a shrimp to get that redfish bite going. These shrimp are a little soft to fish whole, so I will pull the head and tail off them then hook the shrimp on a jig or popping cork set-up. Pulling a few heads and tails off at a time makes for great chum if you throw it up under the trees with a wiffle ball bat. Often these jumbo bait shrimp will fire off the redfish bite when nothing else will. Tarpon fishing this week was all about covering lots of ground to find the fish. Most of my tarpon trips this week involved running to the beaches of Cayo Costa to find consistent numbers of these game fish. Tarpon in the bay have been very scattered, even though the water quality in the bay is 100 percent better than it was the previous week. It just seems to me we simply do not have all the bait in the bay that holds these tarpon in one place for long. Once north of Boca Grande Pass out on the beaches at what is referred to as The Alamo, the water looked like the Keys with lots of rafts of threadfins and huge schools of daisy-chaining tarpon everywhere. This clear water had visibility to at least 12 feet and was a night and day difference compared to the water just at the northern tip of Cayo Costa.. These schools of tarpon in close to the beach on Gasparilla Island are almost impossible to get to eat a bait though as they are very close to spawning and not really interested in food at all. After following chains of fish for what seemed like hours, we still could not get one to eat. A mile or so east inside Boca Grande Pass, things where a little better. Huge schools of tarpon were all over the hil, coming up and rolling 50-plus fish at a time. Throwing live threadfins and crabs into these fish did give us a few hook-ups. This area inside the pass does not get as congested as the popular holes in the pass. I very seldom make it this far up north to tarpon fish, but when the fish are there and not in the usual places to the south, its what you have to do. Running 60 miles on a tarpon charter this week was the norm.Capt. Matt Mitchell has been fishing local waters since he moved to Sanibel in 1980.

Kiwanis Club Again Sponsors FISH 10K RaceFISH (Friends In Service Here) of Sanibel has announced that the Sanibel-Captiva Kiwanis Foundation, Inc. has once again chosen to become a Gold Sponsor of the 10K Race 4 FISH. This will be the third year that the Sanibel-Captiva Kiwanis Club has taken a gold sponsorship in the race. Pete Bender, club president said, Kiwanis has been a long term supporter and we admire the work that FISH does on the islands and think that they make a significant difference in peoples lives. Taking a gold sponsorship helps us to continue the great relationship between our organizations and what we can help accomplish when we support each other. We hope to see many of our Kiwanis members participate in the October 13 race, either as runners or as race marshals. The race will begin at 7:30 a.m. at Community House and will once again follow a marked 10k circuit around the island, returning to The Community House for the finish line. There will also be a trade fair, aimed at the runners and their families and friends, as well as refreshment tables and water stations around the island for runners. The race is being held in conjunction with the Fort Myers Track Club and is expected to attract more than 500 runners this year. More than 40 island businesses and organizations sponsored the 10k in 2011 and over a 120 people volunteered to support and execute a great event. We would like to thank the Kiwanis Club for once again supporting FISH, said Bill Fellows, president of FISH.

Plant SmartPapayaby Gerri ReavesPapayas (Carica papaya) structure brings to mind the native cabbage palm: a crown of large leaves atop a tall smooth bare trunk. The flowers and fruit that cluster near the top amid the leaf umbrella are pear-shaped or spherical, smooth-skinned and green to dull yellow-orange in color. The wild fruit is much smaller than commerciallygrown fruit. Cultivars from Hawaii and Mexico are common in U.S. grocery stores. Papaya flourishes as a weed in South Florida and actually is a large herb, not a tree. It is considered native by some plant scientists and naturalized by others. It can reach more than 30 feet tall. The soft trunk contains a milky sap. The beautiful evergreen leaves are up to two feet across and have an intricate shape, resembling large-scale lacework. Sevenor nine-lobed, they are deeply palmated -all veins radiating from the same point on the hollow stem. In turn, the lobes subdivided. The funnel-shaped creamy flowers are about two inches long with five petals. They bloom all year round, so the plant produces the melon-like fruit throughout the year too. To produce the best fruit, papaya needs sun, fertile well-drained soil, plenty of moisture, and protection from the cold. Plant this somewhat sensitive plant where it will be protected from wind. Papaya is susceptible to a number of pests. Planting several specimens is advisable, since male and female flowers occur on separate plants. Fruit usually occurs only on bisexual or female plants. It is fast-growing and rather short-lived, so keep a round of plants going. Its not only the creamy fruit that is edible. So are the numerous glistening black seeds in the hollow center. The leaves, too, can be eaten as a green like spinach, but are toxic unless cooked. The plant is also the source for papain, a meat tenderizer and dietary supplement that helps to digest protein. Papaya can be propagated with seeds. A note of caution: The unripe fruit is said to be toxic, so cook it before consuming it. This tropical fruit is a good source of vitamin A.

23 ISLAND SUN JUNE 22, 2012 by Mark Bird WestallMany times when I tell people that some of the birds on Sanibel mostly herons and egrets, ibises, night herons and anhingas dont want to nest in the freshwater wetlands of the island unless there is a decent-sized alligator in the water underneath the nests or that the birds will abandon the nesting area if the alligator is removed, people look at me with disbelief. These people are thinking, Of course the birds are not sentient creatures, like we humans, capable of reasoning and intellect, but wouldnt mother birds have evolved the recognition of alligators as predators that would eat an unwary chick? I used to joke the birds knew that alligators cant climb trees. But I stopped saying that because I dont believe a bird has any idea what an alligator can, or cannot, do with a tree. That would give the birds too much intellectual capability. They are not us! But I can easily accept that when a bird is getting ready to nest and its hormones are flowing and millions of years of natural selective survival traits are kicking in, if the bird looks down into the water and sees an alligator swimming underneath the potential nesting site, something triggers in its brain that basically says, This is the place to build my nest. Now, because of our evolutionary past, our intellect is telling us, Thats a crazy idea! Who in the world would want to raise their babies just a few feet above the open mouths of such a dangerous predator? But you see, those thoughts are not intellectual; they are instinctive thoughts. If you can accept the idea (and I understand that this is difficult for some) that the human species evolved in East Africa, it makes sense that we are scared to death of anything that vaguely looks like the Nile crocodile. I like to say that the Nile crocodile has been eating the human form ever since the human form was three feet tall and really furry. I am sure that predation of early hominids by African crocodilians was a serious hindrance to survival; thus our deeply ingrained and easily reinforced fear of them. The instinct is not specific, however. It works on a very broad spectrum. Instinct does not say, only be afraid of Nile crocodiles; it says, be afraid of anything that vaguely looks like the Nile crocodile. Therefore, many people believe that the main reason alligators may sometimes attack a human being is because the gators are stalking us and hunting us every day and when the opportunity presents itself, another attack occurs. I do not believe an alligator instinctively sees the human form as potential prey because the human shape is a relatively recent introduction to the Western Hemisphere. The American alligator is not the Nile crocodile. If it was, we would have dead tourists all over the place.* On the other hand, the birds have a different evolutionary past. Natural selective theory would suggest that in the evolutionary past there would have been birds that were naturally frightened of crocodilians, just as we are. But they would have consistently nested away from the perceived threat and any tree climbing predator (such as raccoons on Sanibel) would eliminate those instinctive feelings from the gene pool. Even birds that were indifferent would by chance nest too often away from the crocodilians and, therefore, be weeded out of the system. Only those birds that actually felt safe when they saw a crocodilian underneath a potential nesting site were the ones who consistently and successfully raised their young. I can give two examples of how this type of instinctive behavior is played out in both birds and humans. The first is the nesting yellow-crowned night herons at the end of the Wildlife Drive. Historically, the barrow ditch on the left-hand side has maintained a lower level of salinity and, therefore, attracts alligators. The alligators then attract nesting yellow-crowned night-herons and anhingas. The nesting birds attract photographers and that has created problems for the refuge staff because some photographers have no problem harassing the birds by cutting holes in the trees so they can get better close-up shots. It is obvious that the birds nesting there are not really safe with the very close proximity of the human predators, but because of their instinctive cues, they feel safe. With humans, I am constantly amazed at how fearful people are of the potential danger presented by alligators, but then will drive after drinking alcohol or today, text while driving. Machines have not been around long enough for our species to instinctively recognize the dangers they present to us. We are dodos when it comes to machines. Whats the difference? I have come to the conclusion that humans are intelligent creatures. We have great reasoning capabilities. But if there is an instinctive bias behind a certain thought or feeling (or in the case of machines; the bias is lacking), it is very difficult to override those thoughts and feelings. Next week, I will talk about when alligators really can be a threat to human safety, both naturally and human-induced.

From page 1Snappy Shrimp Weekmake them. In particular, we investigated the sounds of the snapping shrimp, or pistol shrimp, an animal that grows only a few inches long but creates a sound that competes with that of whales as the loudest in the ocean. Using one oversized claw, the shrimp can create a snapping sound that is louder than a grenade explosion. It is so powerful that its energy can kill a small fish up to six feet away. Our little campers, aged four to six, thought this was pretty cool. They used this as inspiration when designing and decorating their own instruments, drums and maracas, which were used at the end of the week when performing our own Sanibel Sea School song to parents (lyrical highlights included The shrimp in the sea go snap snap snap and The pirates in the sea go yo ho ho). Thankfully, the sound level reached by our three dozen campers did not come close to rivaling that of one small shrimp, so practicing for and performing this song was a pleasant experience. Together, we explored all our senses in a sensory fair, where we learned about how humans and other animals gather information and experience the world. Particularly fun was trying to distinguish between the smell of brownies and that of cookies, especially since we got to taste test them as well. We played games that relied on our sense of hearing. We even checked out real stomatopods, a local relative of the snapping shrimp. And, of course, we spent lots of time surfing and hanging out in the water. But perhaps the best thing we did was that boat ride. Kids eyes got huge in their horizontal heads as they listened underwater for the snap snapping of shrimp. For many, this was probably the first time they put their head underwater and consciously listened. Sound travels 4.3 times better underwater than in air, so the ocean is a wonderfully noisy place. The campers at Snappy Shrimp week and Sanibel Sea School encourage you, the next time youre at the beach, to submerge your ears and listen. Just make sure you arent too close to a snapping shrimp.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 22, 201226 From page 1Simon Hit At Herb Strauss TheaterThe Star-Spangled Girl, a classic Simon comedy set in the 1960s, is the story of a love triangle mixed with politics. The cast includes Jason Boeckman, Kelly Greten and Bianca De Sanctis. The play is directed by June Koc. In The Star-Spangled Girl, Andy and Norman are radical liberals struggling to make a living working on their magazine, Fallout. Sophie is an all-American girl who moves into the apartment next door. Norman immediately falls in love with Sophie and makes Andy hire her at the magazine. When Sophie falls in love with Andy, the magazine and the mens friendship are threatened. Boeckman, who plays the part of Norman in the show, first started at BIG ARTS as a volunteer and now works fulltime in marketing and group sales. Im really excited to be a part of this show, Boeckman said. In the past, Ive played some pretty intense characters, like the Captain in The Sound of Music and Jud Fry in Oklahoma!, so it feels great to really sink my teeth into a character as whacky and silly as Norman. I run around the stage the whole show doing wild and crazy things, so youll definitely want to come out and see what Im going to do. De Sanctis, who portrays Sophie, is a recent graduate of Florida Gulf Coast University, where she studied Theatre. She has appeared has appeared in The Boyfriend (Dulcie), Gypsy (Dainty June), Our Town (Rebecca) and many other shows. She was also heavily involved in the creation of After Hours, an entirely student-produced, student-directed and student-run one-act performance held annually at FGCU. Greten has lived on Sanibel since 2005 and works as facilities manager at The Sanctuary Golf Club. The StarSpangled Girl is Gretens third Sanibel performance and he is excited to play the part of the rebellious and spunky Andy. Previous island credits include productions of Sanibel on Parade (Michael Chauveau) and The Shell Game (Red Grouper) at The Community House. Tickets for BIG ARTS Community Players productions are $15 adults, $5 for children 17 and younger. Group discounts are also available for ten or more people.

27 ISLAND SUN JUNE 22, 2012 CROW Case Of The Week: Coyote Pupby Patricia MolloyOn May 28, a male coyote pup (Canis latrans) was admitted to CROW. At approximately six week old, he was found alone, walking lamely through the lot at Sutherland Nissan in Fort Myers. Coyotes do exist in parts of Southwest Florida but tend to shy away from densely populated cities and coastal areas. As it is unnatural for a coyote pup to be separated from his pack, he was understandably very frightened to find himself in an unfamiliar urban environment. CROWs rescue team quickly responded by capturing and transporting the little pup to its Sanibel clinic. He arrived limping due to swelling near the joint of his left rear leg. Upon closer examination, Dr. Heather discovered multiple scabs and abrasions on all four limbs. The cause of the scabs was determined to be Puppy impetigo, a bacterial infection that causes pus-filled blisters that may break and crust over. Typically, it is not a serious condition and can be treated with a topical ointment. Additionally, the young coyote had fleas and heartworms, which were immediately addressed with Advantage, a topical solution also used on domestic canines. After all of the patients wounds were cleaned, blood was drawn for further analysis. He was immediately placed on a vaccine regiment with continuing supportive care. Initially, the pup refused to eat and drink water, but was eating well once he was placed in a quiet corner of the clinic. According to the 2010 Annual Visitor Profile and Occupancy Analysis from the Clerk of Courts, tourists from around the world spend $2.5 billion dollars in Lee County in order to experience the wonders that the areas rich sea and wildlife have to offer. Each year, CROW cares for more than 4,000 sick, injured and orphaned patients in its veterinary hospital, many cases caused by interaction with humans. The clinics staff of veterinarians, student interns and volunteers regularly work 12-hour days to care for these creatures so they can be released back into the wild. Right now, Dr. Heather is working with the Fish & Wildlife network for placement of the young pup since he was found in a busy urban area with no sign of his pack. In order to provide housing, medication, food and diagnostic testing for patients, the non-profit clinic relies on public donations. Please help to insure our native sea and wildlife.CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Inc.) is a non-profit wildlife hospital providing veterinary care for native and migratory wildlife from the Gulf coast of Florida.

EhrlichAlone at the window I stand and watch a flaming evening sun poise over the jagged mountain profile, flirt lightly with its peaks, settle in for deep caress, then penetrate its core.

From page 1Reef Projectphytoplankton. Dropping down to 90 feet, it provides numerous and changing environments for a multitude of specialized marine life. Within days of being sunk, tiny animals begin to attach themselves to the surface of the artificial reef. Small fish come to the reef to feed and lay their eggs, while larger fish migrate to the area to feed on the smaller fish and so the food chain evolves. Over time, the biodiversity becomes larger and more complex attracting more marine life, on and around the ship. Adding to the already existing enclave, called Charlies Reef, which consists of railroad hopper cars and a sunken barge. As Mike Campbell, Lee County natural resources senior environmental specialist, explained, Even the chains and the extensions around the ship will not only hold the ship in place but also fish and schools of bait, which will bring bigger fish... but you know what bigger fish bring? Tourists. And what will they do once they are here? They are going to stay at your hotels and eat at your restaurants. We have over 20 different sites of artificial reefs, and within those sites, we have a lot of different depth limits. We also have a lot of wrecks off shore that were not sunk on purpose. I think one was sunk by a U-boat, so we have a lot of wrecks out there that people can see. One of the problems is that they are so far out that they are difficult to get to. So this is going to be a midway point to get to between those far away wrecks and short reefs. It will be 28 nautical miles west of Redfish Pass near Charlies Reef. According to Joe Weatherby of Reef Makers, Our plan for the Mohawk is to make it one of the worlds premier diving and fishing experiences. Theres a lot of different species that will gather out there due to the relief of the ship. Certainly, we anticipate a goliath grouper that we often see on wrecks, and for scuba divers, this will be a place you can go to see a really cool ship and have a big fish experience. She already has an interesting history and looks quite different than some of the rusty old buckets of junk sometimes being reefed. The others are fine, but this has something aesthetically more to offer the public. Thats why Lee County and Reef Makers have worked so hard together to get this particular ship. The plan is to attach a WWII lifeboat and put replica guns back on the ship. The propeller, anchor, tackle, original decks and the stacks will all be intact, which will be great for diving. This is going to be a reason for visitors to come to Fort Myers, Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel Island to go diving and fishing on this wreck, noted Weatherby. The engine will be cleaned in kept intact and the cover removed so that divers can see the pistons. This is something that you cant see anywhere else. You will need to come and stay in Lee County to have this experience, which is why we are doing it, said Weatherby. This boat is exciting because it will get more people diving and put Fort Myers on the map as a diving destination. It also makes it worth it to go out 30 miles and combine the Mohawk experience with other dives, said Ramiro Palma, a Cape Coral resident who owns ScubaVice Diving Center, located off McGregor Boulevard in Fort Myers. Itll be great for the economy and we are organizing frequent dive trips to see the Mohawk. Rob Degenero, owner of Nervous Nellies Crazy Waterfront Eatery on Fort Myers Beach, was very excited about the news. This should give divers from the east coast a reason to finally dive the gulf and jumpstart the Lee County diving industry, especially in the summer months when we Floridians go on vacation, he said. As a piece of pure economic development and its been awhile since Lee County has seen something that works as well as this I think relative to the Vandenberg and the amount of scuba diving that goes on and the number of tourists that will come, I think this will be the same percentage impact, said Weatherby. The Vandenberg In Key West The Vandenberg did $40 million in earned media the first year and three Emmys. Its done $7 to $8 million in direct revenue per year. Were throwing off about $700,000 in tax revenue every year. Thats bed taxes as well as sales taxes. It has provided over 100 permanent jobs. We just got the Society Fish seeking shelter in a sunken ship The owner of Nervous Nellies on Fort Myers Beach welcomes the reef and expects it to boost the dive business in the area Goliath grouperISLAND SUN JUNE 22, 201232


of American Travel Writers Eco-Tourism Award, the Phoenix Award, the biggest one in the hemisphere. We know how to do this to get the revenue, Weatherby stated proudly. Studies in South Carolina indicated that reefs along the coast of that state accounted for 26 percent of total offshore fishing even though they made up less than 0.5 percent of total available sites. As early as 1992, South Carolina estimated the total current economic impact of artificial reefs at $17 million. A 1991 survey of marine users from Texas, North Carolina and Florida reported that 54.2 percent of all diving trips were to artificial reefs even though they represented a small fraction of total reef area and that two-thirds of divers preferred ships to other artificial reef sites. Given these figures, a $1.5 million price tag to secure a large ship reef that will increase tourism revenues for 70 years represents an incredible bargain for the host community. Looking At The Keys Wreck Trek As A Proven Record Of Success Starting with the Speagle Grove in Key Largo up to the Vandenberg in Key West, the Keys have proven that you can attract a large amount of tourists who will come mainly for the incredible experience of diving unique shipwrecks. Combine this with the beautiful beaches that Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel and Captiva have to offer, it is upon this community to promote Lee County as one of the best diving destinations in Florida and to create an under appreciated industry to be heavily marketed in tourist media around the world. Islanders Looking Forward To USS Mohawks Benefitsby Jeff LysiakWhen the USS Mohawk is sunk some 28 nautical miles west of Redfish Pass next month, it will join a system of more than 20 artificial reef sites in Lee County offshore and inshore waters. More than a dozen of those reefs lie within a 15-mile radius of Sanibel and Captiva, making the islands a very desirable destination for fishing, snorkeling and scuba diving. Since news of the plan to transform the 77-year-old Mohawk into a veterans memorial reef broke in May, many islanders have spoken positively about the tremendous benefits both economically and ecologically that the historic ship will bring to Sanibel and Captiva.Were very excited about our future commemorative reef and are grateful for the donation from Miamis Historical Maritime Museum, as well as the grant to pay for the event, said Bridgit StoneBudd, director of marketing for the Sanibel & Captiva Islands Chamber of Commerce. Not only will (the sinking of the Mohawk) create a buzz in the media and increase tourism to our islands and Lee County, it will also increase fishing and scuba diving around the veterans memorial reef.According to the chambers website, wrecks and man-made reefs help restock local waters with fish for the benefit of scuba divers and fisherman alike. One of the largest is the Edison Reef, created from the rubble of a former mainland bridge. It was built less than 15 nautical miles from the Sanibel Lighthouse in 42 feet of water. Closer to home, the Belton Johnson Reef approximately five nautical miles off Bowmans Beach was named for a well-known local fishing guide. A yellow and white marker shows the location of the reef, constructed of concrete culverts. Prior to the anticipated July 2 sinking date for the Mohawk, the most recent artificial reef sunk in local waters Peagus/Charlies Reef, installed in July 1999 is located 28 miles due west of Redfish Pass. A large tugboat was added to several railroad hoppers that have drawn a wide variety of marine residents, including barracuda, cobia, nurse sharks, grouper, amberjack and moray eels. Mark Bird Westall, former mayor of Sanibel and an environmental expert, also thinks that creating artificial reefs is good for the environment. The natural reefs can be easily overexploited and, therefore, the more artificial reefs there are, the more habitat there is, said Westall. I would much rather see the Mohawk continuing her service to America by providing a home for fish and a place for fishermen to fish than to see her rust away in a scrapyard or torn to pieces for her metal. In coming to Southwest Florida, she will still be doing her job. Jeff Combs, ranger at the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, Sanibel, agreed that the sinking of the Mohawk will have a great benefit. It will create a habitat for many species of fish and invertebrates, therefore improving fishing in the area. Artificial reefs such as this draw a diverse group of visitors to the islands that have an interest in diving, fishing and other recreational activities, said Combs. This new reef also allows researchers a chance to study and better understand the effects of artificial reefs in our area of the gulf. These iconic vessels act as monuments to those who served on them and continue to serve for the good of our country in a whole new way. Lee County has had an active artificial reef program since the early 1990s. County staff actively pursue grants from state, federal and private sources in an effort to create new artificial reefs. A grant from the West Coast Inland Navigation District is being used to cover the $1.3 million needed to prepare and sink the Mohawk. Visit www.lee-county.com/naturalresources/artreef.htm for the current reef and wreck locations. The men (and perhaps, women) who served on the USS Mohawk can know that she is still protecting our coastline, added Westall. Her assignment has just changed a little. 33 ISLAND SUN JUNE 22, 2012 Voted as a Top 5 Best Breakfast in Florida By Southern Living Open 7 am 10 pm 7 Days a Week Breakfast Endless Happy Hour Huge Kids Menu Outside Open 7 am 10 pm 7 Days a Week O n 7 a 1 0 m 7 D a W k Voted BEST Family Dining Now Serving Fresh

The Globe was built in 1599 from the timbers of Londons very first permanent theater, Burbages Theater. The galleries could seat about 1,000 people, with room for another 2,000 groundlings, who could stand around the stage. On June 28, 1888, writer Robert Louis Stevenson and his family leave San Francisco for their first visit to the South Seas. Stevenson, an adventurous traveler plagued by tuberculosis, was seeking a healthier climate. His novel Treasure Island was published in 1883. On June 27, 1922, the American Library Association awards the first Newbery Medal, honoring the years best childrens book, to The Story of Mankind by Hendrik Willem van Loon. The Newbery Medal seeks to encourage originality and excellence in the field of childrens books. On June 26, 1948, in response to the Soviet blockade of land routes into West Berlin, the United States begins a massive airlift of food, water and medicine to the citizens of the besieged city. For nearly a year, supplies from American planes sustained the more than 2 million people in West Berlin. On June 25, 1956, the last Packard rolls off the production line at Packards plant in Detroit. The classic American luxury car used the famously enigmatic slogan Ask the Man Who Owns One. On June 30, 1962, Sandy Koufax strikes out 13 batters and walks five to lead the Brooklyn Dodgers over the New York Mets 5-0 with his first career no-hitter. Koufax went on to throw three more nohitters, including a perfect game on Sept. 9, 1965, in which he allowed no hits and no walks. On July 1, 1979, the Sony Walkman -the worlds first low-cost, portable music player -goes on sale in Japan. The initial production run of 30,000 units looked to be too ambitious, as only 3,000 were sold at $150 apiece in the first month. Some 200 million sales later, Sony retired the cassette Walkman in 2010. It is still not known who made the following sage observation: Never attribute to malice what can be adequately explained by stupidity. If you are an aficionado of the word game Scrabble, you probably know that there are only five words that can be played using a q but no u. In case youre not in the know, those words are faqir, qaid, qoph, qindar and qintar. In 1774, surveyors in Maryland marked off a parcel of land by mistake. The error was immortalized when the town that grew up on that land adopted the name Accident. The English word mistletoe comes from an Anglo-Saxon phrase that means dung on a twig. It seems that the branches where mistletoe is often found have white splotches on them, which some say resemble bird droppings. The martial art that is known today as karate actually originated in India and spread to China before becoming popular in 17thcentury Japan, where it was dubbed karate, which means empty hand in Japanese. These days youll rarely see an elected official with a beard, but facial hair wasnt always considered to be a liability in politics. In fact, its been reported that Abraham Lincoln was inspired to grow a beard while he was running for president in 1860 because of a letter from an 11-year-old girl. Grace Bedell wrote to Lincoln that a beard would make him look a great deal better, for your face is so thin. All the ladies like whiskers. When the United States bought Alaska from Russia in 1867, the going price was 2 cents an acre. Nothing gives an author so much pleasure as to find his works quoted by other learned authors. -Benjamin Franklin THIS WEEK IN HISTORY STRANGE BUT TRUE THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

Island photographer Bob Kerns photos are featured in the reference alcove. There are so many aspects to the beauty found on this unique barrier island, especially for an amateur photographer, said Kern. Kern explained that sitting on the beach and witnessing magnificent sunsets or walking through neighborhoods and seeing the countless flowers and fauna is truly beauty to behold. Whether touring through Ding Darling or walking an SCCF trail, one can see a remarkable variety of wildlife. We love having this display at the library. It inspires me to pick up my camera and get to work, said library director Margaret Mohundro. Kern offers some tips for taking great photos on Sanibel: If you enjoy seeing nature and its beauty, get yourself a camera and keep it loose in the car or carry it with you. Being in the right place at the right time is a big part of amateur photography. Using a telephoto lens will allow you to bring a distant object much closer for a more dramatic view. Macro lenses allow you to get right up to the object, which also offers a dramatic view. The same techniques apply to flowers, birds and wildlife, interesting tree trunks, shoreline devastated by Hurricane Charley, sunrises or sunsets, cloud formations, various sights in Pine Island Sound or in the Gulf or whatever you find interesting, Kern added. Of particular interest at this exhibit is The Year of the Dragon series of photos Kern took in 2011 using his Nikon D3000 with a 300 mm lens to capture a unique sunrise over Useppa Island that resembles a fire-breathing dragon. If you are somewhere and see something you like, get the camera, frame the subject, focus and shoot. Photographer Bob Kern, right, with some of his admirers at the library exhibitSanibel Library Book Discussion GroupReaders are invited to discuss Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by author Jamie Ford, the focus of the Wednesday, June 27 book discussion meeting at the Sanibel Public Library, 770 Dunlop Road. There is no charge to attend the meeting, which is open to the public. The discussion will begin at 2 p.m. in Meeting Room #4, across from the elevator. Carole Fallon will be the leader for the discussion. When artifacts from Japanese families sent to internment camps during World War II are uncovered during renovations at a Seattle hotel, Henry Lee embarks on a quest that leads to memories of growing up Chinese in a city rife with anti-Japanese sentiment. Discussion of the book begins promptly at 2 p.m. on June 27. The books featured for the book group discussions are available and located in the library near the reference desk. While it is preferable to come having read the book to be able to join in the lively discussion, all are welcome. Call the library at 472-2483 for more information.


37 ISLAND SUN JUNE 22, 2012 Southwest Florida Community Foundation Starts 3-D ProjectThe Southwest Florida Community Foundation has embarked on a unique effort to address the needs of the five-county region to help and enhance local nonprofits. The Southwest Florida Community Foundations 3-D project which stands for data, dialogue and decisions will establish a collaborative network and platform that will allow our region to create efficiencies, share resources, openly communicate and make informed decisions to strengthen our nonprofits. The project will give the community the means to identify challenges and opportunities and, as a cohesive unit, work together to mobilize citizens, nonprofits and the government to provide solutions strengthening the region. This project is important for our region and our foundation, said Sarah Owen, CEO of the SWFLCF, which has made an initial investment of $100,000 to the project. Southwest Florida was one of the hardest hit regions in the recent recession which naturally affected resources for nonprofits. We have found that our nonprofits could have attracted more grants and funds from outside our area if they had more collaboration and were given more support. This is why we are making a significant investment to build knowledge and develop an information tool that will connect our community. The data segment of the project will include a nonprofit mapping and assessment process of the five county area, as well as informational seminars, capacity surveys and round table follow-ups. Dialogue will include developing a regional collaboration, determining strategic partnerships and harnessing regional resources. Finally, decision represents the transformational and results-based philanthropy, sustainable and innovative initiatives and new streams of funding that are expected to be developed. The goals of the project are to: Identify the capacity and information needs of the nonprofit sector Strengthen the capacity of the existing nonprofit organizations and allow the nonprofits and citizens of the lower capacity counties access to the higher capacity resources in the other counties Provide data that will enable nonprofit leaders to make more informed decisions regarding their organizations and the allocation of their resources Provide data to enable government funders and individual donors to make more informed decisions regarding their expenditures and philanthropic investments Increase community participation in public policy conversations regarding social issues Expand and deepen public access to nonprofit resources throughout Southwest Florida Owen added that enormous stress has been placed on the nonprofit sector, hindering its ability to operate and continue to build its own information infrastructure and organizational capacity. In the last year, prominent nonprofits in Southwest Florida were forced to close their doors, leaving a huge hole in the community for those who are most in need. While some of these organizations have reopened, there is another economic issue on the horizon. As tax bases decline and stimulus money is withdrawn, state budgetary shortfalls have led to diminishing governmental investments in the nonprofits that meet services in the region. As a past chair for United Way, the Southwest Florida Community Foundation and multiple other community service organizations as well as CEO of LMHS, I have experienced the challenge of allocating scarce resources for vital community needs, said Jim Nathan, president and CEO of Lee Memorial Health System and 3-D Advisory Council Member. More than just a community needs assessment, the 3-D project will assist with forming community partnerships that will help with grant and other funding opportunities and bring community organizations together to help solve local needs. The SWFLCF has contracted HT Group Consulting, LLC and John B. Talmage to facilitate the 3-D project. Talmage is a senior research fellow at The Metropolitan Center at Florida International University and former CEO of Social Compact, a national nonprofit organization that helps underserved urban areas develop accurate economic data needed to attract investment. The Foundation will begin Geographic Information System (GIS) mapping of more than 3,600 501(c)3 entities in the region including Lee, Charlotte, Collier, Hendry and Glades counties. GIS allows users to view, understand, question, interpret and visualize data in many ways that reveal relationships, patterns and trends in the form of maps, globes, reports and charts, said Talmage. At the same time, 3-D will be conducting ongoing needs analysis of the nonprofits and the regions resources, challenges, leadership and organizational development and network building. An advisory council of more than 30 leaders from the regions foundations, government entities, educational institutions and businesses has been assembled to support the project. The economic downturn has exacerbated the extreme discrepancy in resources available to the large rural areas east of I-75, said Dawn-Marie Driscoll, chairman of the board of trustees. There is one nonprofit for every 250 people in Collier, but just one nonprofit for every 991 people to serve the needs in Glades County.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 22, 201238 Hurricane Strapsby Bryan HayesThis is a subject I talk about every hurricane season. The subject of securing your outside unit. It is very important, because even a strong storm that doesnt reach hurricane strength could cause a poorly secured system to topple. We coined a new term after Hurricane Charley came through. What we witnessed is a lot of units hanging off their stands, so naturally we called them hangers. If you dont believe that it can happen, take a look at the photo below. One thing for sure is that no one wants a 200to 300-pound piece of equipment dangling by mere threads near anyones home. So, if you havent yet, make sure that you inspect your a/c unit and make sure that it has hurricane straps securing it properly in place. If a storm hits, make sure to turn your air conditioner off. When the coast is clear, check to make sure that there is no debris or other visible problems with the outside unit. If youre not sure whether your system is properly secured, give your HVAC contractor a call. I know how much new systems can cost, so its essential that you do everything you can to prepare for potential hazards and protect your investment. 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 Bryan@Sanibelair.com. Beachview Golf Club Hosts Two Special EventsAs part of The Beachview Golf Clubs Summer Series, Beachview Golf Club will conduct a 9-hole shootout this Saturday, June 23.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 22, 201244 Sanibels Greten Competing In Tour Divide Mountain Bike Raceby Jeff LysiakKevin Greten, a Sanibel resident since 1995, is currently on an adventure of a lifetime, racing in a mountain bike event called the Tour Divide which started in Baniff, Canada and will finish in Antelope Wells, New Mexico. Over the past several months, Greten has been training for the 2,745-mile competition by riding his bike from the islands to several Florida destinations, including Fort Lauderdale, Tampa and Orlando. He, along with 105 fellow riders, is hoping to complete the race in 26 days. On June 6, the first day of the Tour Divide (which follows the Continental Divide between Canada and the United States), Greten began a journal of his adventure: Day 1 Had my Great Divide initiation yesterday. Included a little of everything mudslides, flash floods, falling trees and rocks, heavy rain and snow all day. Ended up pushing about 10 miles, including about 5 miles of post holing and mud sloughing on Elks Pass, which took 3 hours. Over the course of the next several days, Greten logged additional journal entries detailing encounters with snowfall, moose and a family of grizzly bears. About 3 miles of snow to pothole and push. But got down before dark, he wrote on Day 4. Didnt see any bears, but a big one left a nice set of tracks across the pass for me to follow. Got me to thinking as I sloughed along. That big bear and I have a lot in common homeless nomads, sleeping in the dirt, and wandering passes thinking about food. Greten, the owner and jewelry designer of Sanibel Goldsmith as well as a licensed general contractor and owner of Calusa Development, was midway between Pinedale and Rawlins, Colorado as of Monday afternoon. He is expected to finish the Tour Divide on July 4.

45 ISLAND SUN JUNE 22, 2012 A beautiful afternoon on June 15 wasnt spoiled with a walk around The Beachview Golf Course. However, the weather did change along the way. The winds picked up and the clouds hovered, but not a drop of rain was seen as the eight teams scrambled for the top Friday Night Scramble prize. Three teams finished tied for the top spot, so matching the scorecards was needed to declare a winner. Skipp Tutor, Gene Taylor and Mick Gurley of New Moon Sailing took top honors with an eagle on the par 5 ninth hole. Brad Sitton won the Timbers/Sanibel Grill closest to the pin contest. The Beachview Golf Course hosts the Friday Night scramble every week. Call the Pro Shop at 472-2626 to sign up your team or well pair you with others. In addition, the winners from the June 8 event were Ank Malechea, Becky Skog, Peter Mindel and John Earle. Malechea also won the Timbers/Sanibel Grill closest to the pin prize that evening.

If you have little practice time, here is a quick routine to use. If you did this routine at least once a week for 45 minutes, your game would improve immediately! 15 Minutes Of Putting Practice Start 30 feet from the hole with one golf ball. Roll about three 30-footers from four different angles (uphill/downhill/ breaking right/breaking left). This will total 12 putts. Then roll a total of 20 five-footers. Putts make up about 40 percent of the total strokes in a game of golf; it deserves at least one-third of your total practice time. 15 Minutes Of Chipping/Pitching Chip and pitch from all different lies and distances around the green for 15 minutes. Focus on your routine as if you were on the golf course playing. Stand behind the ball, visualize what you want the ball to do, do a few rehearsal swings then hit the shot. 15 Minutes Of Full Swing Practice Start with a wedge and hit a few full swings to a specific target and specific yardage. Hit a few balls with each club going with more club as you go (wedge, then 9-iron, then 8-iron, etc.) until driver. This brief but useful routine will let you hit every shot you would face in a round of golf in about 45 minutes. Do this at least once a week and your scores will come down soon after. 1. Nineteen seasons. 2. The Dodgers Duke Snider (1952, 1955). 3. Wide receiver Ron Shanklin, in 1970. 4.

Taking on an athletic challenge as a family can be a great way to spend the summer, with the added bonus of boosting everyones fitness. For many, a multisport event allows everyone to prepare and compete, but each working to the level thats appropriate for their age and agility. For Southwest Florida families, one fun fitness choice is the Galloway Captiva Tri, a two-day event that includes a childrens tri for ages 6 to 13 on Saturday, September 15, and an adult sprint tri on Sunday, September 16. Family members can compete in the morning and spend the rest of the day enjoying the beach and other amenities on Captiva. With a triathlon, getting ready is half the fun. Over the summer, the families can swim, bike and run to build endurance and skills for the race. The distances are short enough that that they are doable, said Kate Gooderham, one of the events two USA Triathlon-certified race directors. The race for those ages 6 to 9 involves a 100 yard swim, a 1.5 mile bike ride and a 0.5 mile run. For the 10to 13-year-olds, the distances are doubled to a 200 yard swim, a 3 mile bike ride and a 1 mile run. These are fun triathlons for the kids. It gives them an opportunity to have a good time without the pressure of winning, said Angie Ferguson, also a USAT-certified raced director as well as a long-time triathlete herself. We want them to have the experience of the three events and the transition in a fun setting... and everyone who finishes gets a medal. The great thing about kids triathlon is that it includes three things kids love to do swim bike and run, said Jim Dwyer, whose two sons will participate in the childrens events while he and his wife, Cindy, do the adult event the following day. The best part is that they get cheered on the whole way and it is short enough that it doesnt lose the fun factor. While fun, family and fitness are the goals of both getting ready for the tri and for participating, safety is also critical. The comparatively short distances are part of the overall safety plan, as is the extra effort made to sanction both events with USA Triathlon and to work closely with local public safety officials in advance of the races. Also, for the childrens events adult volunteers and lifeguards will line the swim course in shallow water, so the kids can either reach out to an adult or stand if they feel overwhelmed. During the bicycle leg of the race, the road is closed to motor vehicles, and the goal is to have an adult visible to a child at all times while they are biking. The run portion takes place along the golf course with lots of adults in view and no vehicles. What we love is to be able for the kids to feel free to enjoy themselves and we dont have to worry, said Dwyer. Our big worry is how well do on the adult race on Sunday! Both adult and children athletes can register online at www.captivatri.org. Community Cooperative Ministries, Inc. (CCMI) is the benefitting charity for the race, as it was last year. A portion of the proceeds raised at the event will go towards supporting CCMIs School Backpack Program, providing emergency food more than 2,000 local children each school year. The program helps reduce child hunger and improves health and academic outcomes providing support for Lee County children and families in need. For additional information, go to www.captivatri.org or find them on Facebook by searching for Captiva Tri. Lee Memorial Joins STOP Sports Injuries InitiativeLast week, leaders at Lee Memorial Health Systems Trauma Center joined together with the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, American Academy of Pediatrics, American Medical Society for Sports Medicine, National Athletic Trainers Association, National Strength and Conditioning Association and Safe Kids Worldwide to promote the STOP (Sports Trauma and Overuse Protection) Sports Injuries campaign. The campaign educates athletes, parents, athletic trainers, coaches and healthcare providers about the rapid increase in youth sports injuries, the necessary steps to help reverse the trend and the need to keep young athletes healthy. The STOP Sports Injuries campaign highlights include teaching proper prevention techniques, discussing the need for open communication between everyone involved in young athletes lives, and encouraging those affected to sign The Pledge to be an advocate for sports safety. The campaign website and pledge are available at www.STOPSportsInjuries.org. Sports injuries among young athletes are on the rise. According to the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), high school athletes, alone, account for an estimated two million injuries, 500,000 doctor visits and 30,000 hospitalizations every year. We have re-doubled our efforts to reduce the number of sports related injuries among young athletes, said Mark Tesoro, analyst and educator for the Lee Memorial Health System Trauma Center. The Trauma Center has been coordinating regional sports safety prevention efforts in partnership with Lee County EMS Public Safety, physicians with Lee Memorial Health Systems sports medicine program, Safe Kids Lee and Collier Counties, Lee County School System, Lee County Parks and Recreation and Florida Gulf Coast University. The high rate of youth sports injuries is fueled by an increase in overuse and trauma injuries and a lack of attention paid to proper injury prevention. According to the CDC, more than half of all sports injuries in children are preventable. Regardless of whether the athlete is a professional, an amateur, an Olympian or a young recreational athlete, the number of sports injuries is increasing but the escalation of injuries in kids is the most alarming, said Dr. James Andrews, former president of the American continued on page 47


47 ISLAND SUN JUNE 22, 2012 School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, I enjoy reading with my preschool children. I like to use both traditional books and e-readers with them. Is one type of book better than another for helping them appreciate books and learn from them? Abigail F., Sanibel Abigail, You have asked a fascinating question. There is no doubt that reading to your children is just about the single most beneficial activity that you can do. All sorts of studies have told us those children who are read to regularly do much better in school and go on to become better readers and have a much larger vocabulary. Your question about which type of book to read to your children certainly points out the power of technology and a very current educational debate. Should children use one format or the other exclusively? Most people have chosen to expose their children to both book formats. It is important for children to learn how to use a traditional text as well as the e-reader format. Joan Cooney Ganz, the founder of Sesame Street, is still highly involved in finding the best practices for teaching children. She has now founded a research center where they examine these issues. According to her centers study about the differences between traditional texts versus e-readers, researchers reported that kids age 3 to 6 remembered more narrative details like What happened in the story? from print books than from enhanced e-books with multimedia features. But when kids were asked one plot question for each story, (i.e. Why did x do y?), there was no difference between the print book readers and the enhanced e-book readers. Cynthia Chiong, the lead author of this research, reported that researchers found that while the multimedia features of enhanced e-books grabbed childrens attention, those same features also distracted young readers and led more to non-content related interactions. Features like animation, sound effects, videos and games made it more difficult for some parents to keep kids focused on reading and diminished kids recall of the text. Parents continually had to tell their children not to turn the page or not to touch the tablets, according to Chiong. What does this mean? Parents and teachers should choose print books or basic e-books over enhanced e-books, if they want a more literacy-focused coreading experience with children. These types of books appear to encourage kids to be more verbal, and can lead to improved vocabulary and language development, the study states. These types of books help kids with questions that relate to the text, label, and name objects, and encourage kids to talk about the books content from their own perspective as well. If the primary goal of reading is just to engage the child, then e-books and enhanced e-books may be the better choice. The study reported that in measuring child-book engagement, based on the childs direct attention and touch, more children showed higher levels of engagement for the e-books than the print books, though a majority were equally engaged by both book types. Children also physically interacted with the enhanced e-book more than when reading either the print or basic e-book. While this study was quite small and more research is needed, it does emphasize the importance of reading with our children and the benefits that come from it. So whether you choose a print book, an e-book, or an enhanced e-book, as long as you are reading to your children they will benefit.

49 ISLAND SUN JUNE 22, 2012Not One But Two Professional Sports Championships Possible Here In 2012by Ed FrankIt took 21 years before a local professional team won a league championship, but could this be the year that two titles come this way? The Fort Myers Miracle have called Hammond Stadium in the Lee County Sports Complex home for 21 years, having never won a Florida State League Championship. Just last month, however, the Florida Everblades captured their first ECHL Kelly Cup in the 14th year of their hockey franchises history. And now, the upstart Florida Tarpons of the Ultimate Indoor Football League enter post-season play as heavy favorites to win Ultimate Bowl II. In their first year, the Tarpons recorded a perfect 11-0 record to grab the No. 1 seed and home field advantage at Germain Arena. The Tarpons host the Lakeland Raiders on Monday at Germain, with the kickoff scheduled for 7:30 p.m. in the battle for the leagues Southern Conference title. The Tarpons already have beaten Lakeland three times in the regular season by scores of 62-45, 59-51 and 57-42. Should the Tarpons defeat Lakeland for the fourth time, they will face the winner of the Marion-Erie game in the Northern Conference. For the first time in league history, the game will be played outdoors due to renovations of the Marion arena. Should the Tarpons win their 12th game on Monday, as expected, they will host Ultimate Bowl II at Germain on Monday, July 2. The strength of the Tarpons is evidenced by the fact that the team landed 10 players on the all-UIFL team, including Terrance Jones, defensive player of the year; Ross Gornall, special teams player of the year; and Michael Taylor, coach of the year. Tickets for the playoff games are available at the Germain Arena ticket office or through ticketmaster.com. Twins First Draft Pick Signs For $6.2 Million Outfielder Bryon Buxton, the No. 2 overall pick in baseballs Major League Draft, was signed quickly by the Minnesota Twins for a hefty $6.2 million and will begin his professional carrier right here with the rookie-level Gulf Coast League Twins. Just 18 years old, Buxton is considered a five-tool player and completed his senior year at Appling County High School in Georgia with a .513 batting average, leading his team to the schools first state title. Miracle End Seasons First Half With 27-38 Record The Fort Myers Miracle began the seasons second-half Monday hoping to improve on their 27-38 first-half record that resulted in fifth-place in the Florida State Leagues South Division. But it wasnt a winning start, losing 2-1 on the road to the Jupiter Hammerheads. Fort Myers returns home to Hammond Stadium on Sunday for a four-game series against the Tampa Yankees starting at 4:05 p.m. The Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday games have 7:05 p.m. starts. Tampa completed the first-half with a 29-36 record and a fourth-place standing in the North Division.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 22, 201250 MarketWatch Update submitted by The Sanibel Captiva Trust CompanyAs it currently stands, the Bush-era tax cuts on ordinary income, dividends, capital gains and interest will expire on December 31 unless Congress votes to extend the current low rates yet again. This time, another extension seems more unlikely the election will be over, and the new Congress will have to come to grips with the deficit sooner or later. Thus, many Sanibel Captiva residents in top income brackets may need to prepare for higher tax rates on investment activities, according to The Sanibel Captiva Trust Company. History suggests that changing rates may impact investor behavior and corporate decision-making, but the evidence is mixed. In 1922, Congress lowered the top capital gains rate from 73 percent to 12.5 percent, and the roaring s stock bubble followed soon thereafter. The 1993 Budget Reconciliation Act raised the top income tax rate to 39.6 percent and capped capital gains rates at 28 percent, with a multi-year boom in high-growth, non-dividend paying technology stocks starting in the mid-90s. Corporations also continued to reduce dividend payout ratios, though this trend had been in place since the 1960s. Four years later, in 1997, Congress lowered capital gains rates to 20 percent, and the Internet bubble hit full stride. However, its tough to say whether changes in tax rates caused the equity bubble of the 1920s and 1990s, or simply occurred at the same time. For example, the reduction of the tax rate on dividends to 15 percent in 2003 has not spurred corporations to pay out more of their earnings as dividends in fact, the overall payout ratio of the S&P 500 has been flat to down since 2003. Starting next year, the top tax rate on dividends rises markedly to 39.6 percent. The top ordinary income tax rate will be 43.4 percent (including the new 3.8 percent investment tax written into health-care legislation), which will exceed long-term capital gains rate by over 20 percentage points. Although this change will simply put dividends on an equal footing after taxes with interest income, it will significantly widen the tax gap between capital gains and other sources of income for high-income earners. Many strategies will still be available to reduce, or defer, taxes. Investors can: Harvest capital gains on low-basis stocks in 2012 before the tax rates rise. Shift dividend-paying securities to tax-deferred accounts like IRAs. Postpone taking losses beyond 2012 to reduce future taxes. Strategically use up loss carry forwards. Shift some fixed-income investments into tax-free municipal securities. Increase holding periods on stocks to defer paying higher taxes indefinitely. Seek more capital appreciation from portfolios rather than current income. A high priority in 2012 should be to position your portfolio as best as possible to generate after-tax gains that still meet individual needs and goals. In our view, the tax tail should not wag the investment dog, and taxes should be just one of many factors we consider when positioning portfolios. Will Power Columnist: Crai g R.

Comfort Comfort is key to Selecting sofas and chairs. If you want your room to be totally hospitable, then be sure to select well proportioned and comfortable seating. Furniture Be sure to group your furniture to allow talk to flow easily. Its also important that your furniture be adaptable to different situations.

A home without warmth, no matter how tasteful, can have an adverse effect on most people Fabrics Be sure that your fabric selections are pleasing in texture as well as harmonious in color, with good wearing and maintenance qualities for your sake and your budgets. Lighting A lighting plan must be created to enhance your overall room setting and illuminate special rooms activities. Provide soft lighting for entertaining and direct or task lighting for reading. Lamps Be sure your lamps are the right height and of a size thats in balance with other furnishings. Todays lamp shades come in a variety of textures, colors and styles, so consider selecting decorative shades to compliment your rooms overall decor.

Insurance Tip How To Avoid Water Damageby Marge MeekWater damage to your home results in large claims, disruption to your life and the loss of valuables. Here are some statistics from a study conducted by the Institute for Business and Home Safety: The number one source of water damage is roof leaks. Look for missing or deteriorated flashing around vents and chimneys. Half of all damage involving washing machines was due to a burst water supply line. Install reinforced braided stainless steel hoses and get rid of the black plastic water lines that came with the machine. Forty-four percent of the water damage from a sink came from faulty plumbing lines. Be sure the shut off valve is working; inspect your plumbing for leaks and corrosion. Supply lines to toilets also cause thousands of dollars in damage to the tile and other rooms. This area can be checked intermittently to keep a slow drip at the connection to the toilet doesnt create a large repair job. After five years, the chance that a water heater will fail increases dramatically. That is why many condos require new water heaters every seven to 10 years, as the damage done to the unit below is the responsibility of that unit owner and not from the condo where the leak started. Seventy-five percent of all water heaters fail before they are 12 years old. Lastly, turning your water off when you leave can relieve you of one more worry.

He might ask you to man a booth at a festival, direct people where to park, or to set up before or break down after the event. If he is a really good friend, even if your interests arent aligned with his, you might commit yourself to helping him out. Then the day of the event comes and you find yourself coming up with some excuse why you cant be there. That can create a mess cant it? Not only might it mess up the event itself because your friend was counting on you, but it might mess up your day or your plans because you really have a thousand other things that you would rather do. Worse, it might injure your friendship. When you dont feel a commitment but obligate yourself in some way, youve created a mess. Which is where the equation comes in. M = O C. Mess equals obligation minus commitment. This translates well into your estate plan particularly when you have discussed your future intentions with those affected and closest to you. Let me tell you about the man who owned a cabin up north. His daughter resided there seasonally a fact that the man didnt share with his estate-planning attorney. He also didnt divulge a few other important specifics about that cabin. When the man created his estate plan, he directed that the cabin be shared between all of his children rather than giving it to only one of them. The man named one of his sons as trustee to ensure that the family members would use the property as he intended. The daughter, however, swears that her father promised to devise the cabin to her. So when he did die, and she discovered that she would not inherit the cabin separate and apart from her siblings, the daughter was devastated. She accused her brother of unduly influencing their father of somehow finagling the cabin away from the fathers promise. She also claimed that she put money into fixing up the cabin based upon her fathers promise that she would one day inherit it. A real mess. Assuming that the daughter is telling the truth, and that the father did promise her the cabin, why would he put something different in his estate plan? I suspect that the answer lies in M = O C. The father made an oral promise obligating him to give the cabin to the daughter, but didnt have the internal commitment to actually carry out his promise for one reason or another. Maybe he had that commitment at one time, but when he signed his estate plan that didnt include the gift, it was evident that he no longer felt that commitment. Should the father have let his daughter know of his new desire for the entire family to share? Im sure that would have been a difficult conversation to have, but by not having it the father risked a fracture in the family that would render his plan inoperable. Dueling children are not likely to share nicely. The same formula holds true with other elements of your estate plan. If youve discussed naming one child as your executor but later name another, questions and hard feelings may arise. Its one thing if youve never discussed your intentions with anybody. When you havent mentioned your intentions to anyone, a crucial element of the formula (obligation) is missing. But once youve discussed your feelings and made certain statements and promises, its vitally important to reveal your new intentions should they change. All of us have the right to change our minds, even if we dont view our promises as obligations. Consider, however, that most children will take their parents words as rock solid intent. Its not unreasonable for a child to anticipate that if their parent decides to alter his plan, then they would advise those affected. Charities, by the way, may even have a means of enforcing a promise. The law provides that if youve made a charitable pledge, and if the charity has acted in reliance of that promise (naming a building or funding an endowed chair as two examples), then that charity should be able to enforce the obligation, even if made in a revocable trust or will that can always be changed. So be careful what you say about who is to receive what within your estate plan and to whom you say it. Even if you view your intentions as fluid and subject to your changing discretion, once youve voiced them to your family and other affected parties, you might create a real mess if you dont let them know that your commitment to the original idea has faded over time.

Locally, Lee County netted 301,295 pounds of food and Collier County reported collections of 269,340 pounds. Many local food pantries receive the donations that were collected. At one local food pantry, a young boy was able to select a box of Pop Tarts and he excitedly told his mother, Oh boy, now maybe my friends will come to my house to play again. Another child proclaimed, Wow, look at all the food we have now because his family had received some vegetables. The Postal Service, the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC), Feeding America, the Campbell Soup Company and other partner organizations including the National Rural Letter Carriers Association and other USPS employees worked together and collected more than 70.5 million pounds of food during the nations largest single-day food drive. This year marked the 20th anniversary of the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive and was the ninth consecutive time donations totaled more than 70 million pounds. Since the program began in 1992, more than 1 billion pounds of food has been collected to help feed Americas hungry. Recent statistics indicate that about 50 million Americans including 17 million children now live in families that lack sufficient food. These results will enable the food pantries across the country to help feed the 50 million Americans, one-third of them children, who live in families that lack sufficient food.

Dr. DaveTendon Truthsby Dr. Dave HepburnThetis, a gorgeous Greek goddess of the sea, was courted by several high-ranking gods including Zeus, Poseidon and Gordo, son of Bacchus. But due to your basic Greek curse-de-jour, she was condemned like most women to marry a mere mortal man. Not terribly pleased about this, Thetis made the life of her mortal hubby, poor Peleus, a living hades. Each time Peleus tried to hold Thetis, she had the irritating habit of transforming herself into a tree or fire or a tiger, earning her the title of goddess of PMS. Finally, the odd couple did manage to have a little bouncing baby demigod, Achilles. Wanting him to be immortal, Thetis (not exactly being the brightest lighthouse on Olympus) held Achilles by the heel and dipped him into the river Styx, immortalizing all but his heel. Achilles went on to become the hero of the Trojan War against the Sheiks. But eventually, archenemy (heelenemy?) Paris, shooting with the accuracy of a Lord of the Rings elf, landed an arrow smack dab into Achilles heel, mortally wounding him and proving the old adage, time wounds all heels. Achilless heel didnt, and as a result he passed into Greek mythological death, ensuring himself a lucrative deal as a constellation, a sports shoe or a tendon. A tendon is that tough sinewy end of a muscle that connects the muscle to a bone. (A ligament connects a bone to a bone.) Painful tendons are commonly caused from overuse. Athletes (be they competitive, weekend warriors or the New York Rangers) commonly overuse a tendon until it develops wee cracks and tears and starts to degenerate. Most doctors do not know the difference between a tendinitis and a tendinosis. Fortunately, most physiotherapists do. Itis refers to inflammation of a particular organ or tissue. Meningitis, appendicitis, bursitis, arthritis, tonsillitis, hepatitis, colitis, etc. all refer to swollen and inflamed organs. But tendons rarely get inflamed. Tendinitis, therefore, is as mythical as Thetis, Zeus or Bertuzzi. Instead, a sore tendon is commonly a tendinosis, a painful degeneration of the tendon caused by microtrauma, aging or poor blood flow. And anti-inflammatory pills do not help! But I guarantee that 8.7926 doctors out of 10 will recommend antiinflammatory pills for what they perceive is tendonitis. Treatment, however, should be geared towards both preventing further collagen degeneration in the tendon as well as stimulating collagen synthesis. Treatment includes specific strengthening, deep friction massage, laser, appropriate rest (may take months), surgery and more recently the use of Botox. Five tendons that commonly get into trouble include the: Achilles Tendon Achilles tendinitis refers to pain in the calf as a result of overuse, usually in runners. This is the only tendinosis that does not occur where the tendon attaches to the bone, but rather where the tendon connects to the muscle. Hence, pain is not at the heel but more towards the lower calf. If allowed to continue to degenerate, this tendon can rupture with devastating results. Patellar Tendon Just below the kneecap, the patellar tendon can be worn out through extensive jumping or squatting. Known as jumpers knee Tennis Elbow Tennis elbow is a tendinosis of the top of the elbow (hold your arm out straight with palm down and press the top of your elbow). It is actually caused by anyone who overuses the wrist, not the elbow! So named because it occurs in a tennis player who snaps the wrist backwards for a backhand shot or a backhand slap across their doubles partners skull. Rotator Cuff Occurs in the shoulder of swimmers, pitchers or in older folks who fall on the shoulder. This tendon can easily progress to a tear causing the shoulder to hurt all night. Surgical repair is necessary. Golfers Elbow The bottom of the elbow is sore, again from overuse of the wrist. So named for the strain put on the tendon by golfers constantly bending their clubs around the neck of the nearest tennis player. Like the column?

Free Autism Screening For Young Children The Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida, in partnership with the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southwest Florida, offers a free monthly autism spectrum disorder screening for toddlers 18 months to 5 years of age. The next screening will be held this Friday, June 22 from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Family Health Center, 2256 Heitman Street in Fort Myers. It is estimated that one in every 150 children is diagnosed with some form of Autism Spectrum Disorder, making it more common than childhood cancer, juvenile diabetes and pediatric AIDS combined. Medical consultants for the project stress that an early diagnosis can make a vast difference for toddlers and their families. They say early intensive behavioral intervention can make an immense difference not just in the development of the child, but in their families as well. The ASD screening is conducted by the Neurosciences Center at The Childrens Hospital, under the guidance of pediatric neurologist Jose Colon, MD, MPH. The screenings are administered by an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner, who has extensive training and experience in typical child development and developmental disorders. A physician referral is not required. To schedule a screening, call 343-6838. From page 373-D Projectserved. According to Owen, the project will take place over a three-year period with the third phase to include a capacity survey to determine how the efforts have improved the civic infrastructure, civil society and lives of citizens across Southwest Florida. As a regional foundation, our goal is to be the catalyst for social innovation, transformational communities, organizational capacity and needed inspiration, added Owen. 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. During its 2011 fiscal year, SWFLCF granted more than $3 million to more than 100 different organizations supporting education, animal welfare, arts and human services.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 22, 201254 by Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: I am suffering with Sjogrens syndrome, it makes my skin, eyes and mouth so terribly dry. Even sex is painful. Do you have any suggestions that may work for me? PW, Santa Rosa, California Sjogrens syndrome or SS mainly affects women and occurs, in part, when white blood cells attack the moisture-producing glands. Think drydry eyes and mouth, vaginal dryness, dry skin, joint pain, persistent cough or harm to the kidneys, lungs, liver or GI tract can occur. Temporary relief comes from running humidifiers, taking medicine or using natural herbs. Prescriptions of either pilocarpine or Evoxac may help dry eyes/mouth as can inexpensive artificial tear eye drops. Immunosuppressant drugs calm a hyperactive immune system, in an attempt to balance a see-saw immune system that is severely tilted. The symptoms of SS are mediated by cytokines (very mean compounds) driven by the NF-kappa B pathway, and excessive cytokines cause dryness, pain and inflammation. Some of the cytokines are known as interleukins and abbreviated as IL and numbered as in IL-1, IL-13 and IL-4 and so forth in the literature. High TNF alpha and prostaglandins are also part of the painful picture of autoimmune dysregulation. Excessive amounts of this stuff causes unspeakable misery, but I know ways to reduce these mean compounds. Soon, you will too. I realize this is complicated, but I insist you have some knowledge so you can research yourself and discuss my ideas with your physician. A healthy immune system rocks like a see-saw, and it remains in balance with its two T-helper armies (Th1 and Th2). With SS, its dynamic, it changes and sways this way and that way. Often, the see-saw is tilted and the Th2 army dominates thus producing a boatload of those mean cytokines mentioned above. Other Th2 dominant conditions include eczema, BPH, Graves, cancer, asthma, infections, fibromyalgia, late Lymes, lupus and ulcerative colitis. Certain supplements can calm a Th2 dominant condition by strengthening the Th1 army (thats usually what you want with SS, but not always). Ask your physician for approval, and carefully note your response. If symptoms worsen, stop immediately. Green tea or EGCG supplements Reduces many interleukins including IL-1 (associated with skin) and calms inflammation and sensitivity in your eyes and mouth. Wise Woman Herbals vaginal suppositories They contain vitamin E, A and the soothing herb calendula. May relieve vaginal dryness. Omega 3 fish oils Helps with dry eyes and mouth. Reduces TNF alpha and prostaglandins. CoQ10 or Ubiquinol Improves salivary flow. Herbal mouth rinses Great, but avoid those containing alcohol or witch hazel, which may aggravate oral dryness. Prickly ash, slippery elm Taken as tinctures or tea may stimulate saliva production. Be mindful that some wonderful supplements aggravate Th2 dominance by strengthening that army: Alfalfa, astragalus, echinacea, ginseng, goldenseal and licorice root. If youre condition is Th1 dominant, then these are great. A blood test can determine Th1 versus Th2 dominance. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

She complains and whines about everything when it is really nothing and I am getting tired of being around her.A: It is easy to get caught up and complain about the shortcomings in life, and at times we all do. But to get stuck in the habit of whining only attracts more whining. The truth is, most of us have it pretty darn good. Your friend may not even realize she is doing so much complaining and whining as it becomes so automatic. You might want to cut out an article or news clipping of someone who hasnt had it so good, i.e., a wounded solider returning from war; someone who suffers from a chronic illness or disease; someone who has lost a home. She needs a dose of reality and once this is put in perspective, perhaps this will help her get the message that she needs to be more appreciative of the good in her life. She should thank you for caring enough to help her open her eyes. From page 46Sports InjuriesOrthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM) and STOP Sports Injuries cocampaign chair.

55 ISLAND SUN JUNE 22, 2012 Mom And Me by Lizzie and PryceLizzie and Pryce answer your questions and give advice about aging concerns from a two-generational perspective. A mother and daughter team, Lizzie is a retired RN and health educator, and Pryce is a licensed psychotherapist in private practice who specializes in the care of elders and people with chronic illnesses. Dear Mom & Me, I have realized that my parents were unable to function in their own home, but my mother positively refused to move. She has been caring for my father, who has some form of memory loss. The other morning at about 2 a.m., my father got up, went to the kitchen and started to cook. The smell of smoke awakened my mother and in the rush she fell and broke her hip. The fire trucks came, they called an ambulance and the whole neighborhood was awakened. My father was also taken to the emergency department because at that time we had no other place for him to go. The house was severely damaged. My father is staying with relatives out of town and my mother is in rehabilitation after surgery. I dont know what to do next. Where do you suggest I start? Annabelle Dear Annabelle, For some older individuals, living independently at home even with inhome services is not possible due to safety concerns. Some significant safety concerns are wandering out of the home, having days and nights confused and engaging in other unsafe behavior like using appliances unsafely. If your parents return home, their home plan should include in home services 24 hours a day, seven days a week, which is very expensive. The other option is either independent housing with supportive services or assisted living. Begin by calling the independent living and assisted living communities in your area. The social worker at the rehab center is a great resource. She or he will be able to tell your mothers abilities, where the therapist and physicians think your mother should live and the different communities in the area to look at. Pryce Lizzie and Pryces email address is momandmeaging@hotmail.com.

The intake of cats during the summer increases from a monthly average of 286 to an average of 523 per month from May through October. The shelter is depending on the generosity of the community to get through kitten season with enough food to feed all of the cats. Donations can be brought to the shelter at 5600 Banner Drive in Fort Myers, located off Six Mile Cypress Parkway next to the Lee County Sheriffs Office. Convenient drop off sites are also located in many Publix Supermarkets and other locations throughout Lee County. A list of sites is available online at www. LeeLostPets.com. The shelters goal is to provide the best care possible for pets until they can be adopted into permanent, loving homes. Canned food is very important for growing kittens, as well as adult cats, that require extra nutrition to ensure a healthy weight to prepare them for adoption, said Donna Ward, LCDAS director. Many of the cats and kittens that come through our shelter doors have not had proper nutrition or vaccinations placing them at risk for illness leading to loss of appetite. Canned cat food provides an extra incentive to get them back to a healthy weight. Providing the right type of food is critical to their well being and survival. Lee County Domestic Animal Services also encourages residents to spay and neuter their own felines in addition to taking advantage of the agencys Trap, Neuter and Return program for feral (wild) outdoor cats by calling 533-9234 or via email at spay@leegov.com.

FPLs Summer Savings Tips: Keep Your Cool And Make The Most Of Your A/C UnitAs temperatures heat up, Florida Power & Light offers weekly energy savings advice for customers this summer. W ith the official start of summer now here, FPL reminds customers that weather is the number one cause of higher electric bills, especially as air conditioning usage increases along with rising outdoor temperatures. Air conditioning can account for half or more of electric bills, with outside temperatures directly affecting how often and how long systems must run to cool homes and businesses, said FPLs energy efficiency blogger Danielle Mousseau. While FPL customers already have the lowest bills out of all 55 utilities in the state, were committed to helping Floridians manage energy use throughout the warm summer months and make their bills even lower. Mousseau offers simple tips customers can implement to keep excess light and heat out of their homes, helping air conditioners work more efficiently and saving money in the process. Window Shading Windows and glass doors that face east and west are the most likely to let unwanted heat into your home. Here are some ways to shade the area: Landscaping You must plan before you plant. Consider the mature size of plants and their distance from power lines. Awnings These work best when the sun is high in the sky. They shade windows well but are not cost effective based solely on energy savings. Window Coverings These reduce the amount of heat that enters from the sun. They shade windows well but are not cost effective based solely on energy savings. Weather-stripping This is an inexpensive solution to help reduce the amount of air that enters or escapes your home through doors and windows. Types of weather-stripping include: V-shaped vinyl Adhesive-backed foam Spring metal Door sweep Caulking Caulking is an additional way to reduce unwanted airflow. It is only worthwhile when done as part of another project, such as painting. Use silicone or siliconized acrylic caulk because they have the longest life span, work well on most surfaces, and will maintain their elasticity. Ceiling Insulation Adding insulation to your home can reduce heating and cooling costs. Homes built after 1982 are required to have R-19 insulation, which is the level we recommend. However, if your home was built before 1982, you may benefit from adding insulation. Installing additional insulation: Keeps unwanted heat out Reduces the workload of your cooling system Can result in additional savings on your electric bill At www.FPL.com/toolkit, customers can view tools and information to help them understand, control and manage bills including top 10 energy-saving tips, an interactive house with energy-saving tips room by room and information on savings when purchasing a new air conditioner. Additionally, customers can get a personalized energy savings plan by completing an Online Home Energy Survey at www.FPL.com/ohes.

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.

When Ellie Mae came to the shelter in February, she was in very poor condition and extremely underweight. She also suffered from an eye condition which caused her lashes to rub against her eyes. She has had surgery to fix her eye problems and has gained 15 pounds. Ellie Mae loves kids and gets along great with other dogs and cats. She is an athletic girl and would do best in a home with a yard and an active family. Ellie Mae is also house trained and loves chew toys and bones. She is currently in a foster home, so if you are interested in meeting her, please send an email to kennel@leegov.com. Her adoption fee is free (regularly $75) during Animal Services Construction Special. Lucy is a three year-old spayed female black domestic short hair. She has been at the shelter since December. She came from a home with more than 70 cats, so individual care and attention is something she is hoping to find in her new forever home! Lucy is affectionate and its no surprise that she gets along well with other cats. She and her sister Vera are the only cats from her former home that are still at the shelter. It would be great if they could stay together. How about adopting two? Her adoption fee is free (regularly $50) during Animal Services Construction Special. For information about this weeks pets, call 533-7387 (LEE-PETS) or log on to Animal Services website at www. LeeLostPets.com. When calling, refer to the animals ID number. The website updates every hour so you will be able to see if these or any other pets are still available. The shelter is open for adoptions from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The shelter is located at 5600 Banner Drive in Fort Myers, next to the Lee County Sheriffs Office off Six Mile Cypress Parkway. All adoptions include spay/ neuter surgery, age-appropriate vaccinations, rabies vaccination and county license if three months or older, flea treatment, worming, heartworm test for dogs six months and over, feline AIDS and leukemia test for cats, training DVD, 10-day health guarantee and a bag of Science Diet pet food. The adoption package is valued at $500. Lucy ID #524647 Ellie Mae ID #528953 photos by squaredogphoto.com Read us online at IslandSunNews.com
