There were a few temporarily relocated signs and light fixtures along the way.Beginning at 10 p.m. on October 2, crews began the task of moving the two-story Shore Haven house a Sears & Roebuck Honor Bilt kit home constructed on Sanibel in 1924 from a small plot of land on San Carlos Bay Drive, near the end of Dixie Beach Boulevard. Workers from Flint & Doyle Structural Movers transported Shore Haven slowly up Periwinkle Way through the night, finally reaching the homes new address on Dunlop Road in the wee hours of Wednesday morning. Immediately, this becomes one of the highlights of the museum, said Alex Werner, president of the Sanibel Historical Museum & Village, as Shore Haven was carefully moved across the parking lot adjacent to BIG ARTS and the museum. On September 28, the 1,500-square-foot structure was moved by barge from its original location a picturesque bayside lot on Bird Lane to an empty parcel two continued on page 36 Celebrity waiters from left: Sanibel Fire Chief Danny Duncan, NBC-2 co-anchors Krista Fogelsong and Clay Miller, Dan Schuyler, Karen Bell, Anne Joffe, Matt Asen, Sandy Stilwell, Ric Base and Mark Blust Get Dolled Up For The Zombie House PartyJust as retro music and fashion regularly come back into style, so too with zombies.

3 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 12, 2012Veterans Day Is 30th Anniversary Of Vietnam Wall Dedication submitted by Ted TysonThe Sanibel-Captiva Veterans Day Ceremony on November 12 will have special significance this year. Thirty years ago to the day, The Wall, inscribed with the names of military personnel who made the supreme sacrifice in the war in Vietnam, was dedicated in a stirring ceremony. This year will see honors repeated at the nations capitol by officials and veterans who travel long distances to participate. The Sanibel-Captiva ceremonies were started by Bob Janes, colonel, USAR (retired, deceased) some 23 years ago. Janes was a Sanibel city councilman, Sanibel mayor, and Lee County commissioner. The man who developed the technique to inscribe the names on The Wall, and who supervised much of the effort, is Sanibel artist Lucas (Luc) Century. Long time residents of the barrier islands are aware of Centurys contributions to Americas veterans but many of the newer residents and visitors may not know that he helped create The Wall in Washington, DC and a wall in Fort Myers, which lists the names of our local heroes who gave their all. The Fort Myers wall is located southwest of the intersection of McGregor and Colonial boulevards. The Fort Myers and DC walls are updated as American POWs and MIAs remains are identified. Their names are added to the wall and they are laid to rest with full military honors. This effort will not end until all POW/MIA personnel are recovered. Century will join us at the 2012 Sanibel-Captiva Veterans Day Ceremony and give a short talk regarding the walls at DC and in Fort Myers, both of which include the name and information of the only Sanibel resident, Willie Michael Rhodes, PFC, USA, who died on August 8, 1967 defending us all in the Vietnam war. He will never be forgotten, and will be honored at the ceremony. All veterans in the tri-county area, (Lee, Collier, Charlotte) and all veterans support groups wishing to conduct veterans outreach activities are welcome to join residents, visitors, families and friends in honoring veterans at Sanibel City Hall from 10:30 a.m. to noon. From noon to 4 p.m., there will be a display of military equipment and veterans outreach in the parking lot at Baileys Center, at the corner of Periwinkle Way and Tarpon Bay Road.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 12, 20126 Best Place To Trick-Or-Treat Is At The Community HouseThere will be no way to count how many island and vacationing families will play carnival games and enjoy a hay ride, but Salli Kirkland, Sanibel Community Association volunteer, estimates there will be between 350 to 400 children and their families, event volunteers and folks that just want to see a bunch of kids having fun and wearing clever costumes. It all happens at The Community House on Wednesday October 31. The event runs from 5 to 7 p,m. Admission is just one bag of trick-ortreat candy. Kirkland and her grown daughter, Vanessa Flynt, originated the idea and have been the carnival event planners since 2000. Designed as a Halloween Trick-orTreat spot for the entire family, this years carnival will have 18 games with plenty of candy, a prize booth, dining area serving $2 meals and a hay ride that includes a trip to the theatre across the street. They hope to continue the retro photo booth and claw machine that were added attractions last year. Kirkland says The Community House event is a success because of our unique community, businesses that continually donate money and supplies to support the event and the volunteer spirit here. Over 50 volunteers are needed to help with planning, decorating, attending games and food booths, distributing prizes and clean up after the event. We still need volunteers, said Kirkland, and I guarantee a fun night and a chance to wear your favorite costume! Adults and middle to high school children are encouraged to call The Community House at 472-2155 to sign up. School community service hours will be awarded. Kirkland believes that this event emphasizes The Community Houses mission, To enrich community spirit through educational, cultural and social gatherings in our historic Community House. The initial goal in the design of the event was to provide a safe and well lit place for young children, families and island vacationers to experience Halloween. Please help us accomplish that mission! she added. The Community House is located at 2173 Periwinkle Way on Sanibel.

9 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 12, 2012 Zonta Learns Power Of Grants To FISH Of SanibelAt their October program meeting, members and guests of the Zonta Club of Sanibel-Captiva learned their latest grant to FISH of Sanibel may well have saved a womans life. The clubs 2012 grant of $6,700 facilitated mammograms for up to 20 women in the Helping Hands program, and this project suggested by a Zontian who volunteers at FISH identified a woman with a tumor requiring follow-up care, also partly funded by the grant. The audience was captivated by an informative presentation on FISH, the island non-profit which exists to help those who live or work on the island. The speakers were Blanaid Colley, FISH board vice president and co-owner of Hillgate Communications and the Coffee Bar @ Baileys; and Christine Swiersz, licensed social worker and program director for FISH. Colley, her husband Jeremy Kane and their three children came to Sanibel in 2008 and quickly became involved in island life. Swiersz, married to Tom and the mother of four daughters, joined FISH three years ago. FISH (Friends In Service Here) focused on neighbors helping neighbors and now in its 31st year, has experienced explosive growth. Colley took the audience through highlights of organizational structure, numbers served, fundraising and annual budgets. From a modest group of three couples that met in the early years in a back room at Big Red Q Printing, FISH now inhabits a suite of offices on Periwinkle Way (behind Pfeiffer Real Estate), has an annual budget of nearly $600,000 and in 2011 served more than 750 clients. In 2009, FISH became a United Way agency. So far in 2012, the list of clients served totals 855 representing 612 households, of which more than twothirds are headed by a woman. Many other organizations take care of different resources in our community the animals, the environment, Colley said. FISH takes care of our most important resource our people. Zonta activities are mission-driven, focusing on projects that improve the status of women, so it was fitting to learn that the majority of FISH clients are female. Also, Colley stated 89 percent of clients last year were islanders while 11 percent were island workers who reside elsewhere. About 20 percent were under age 18. Zonta has supported FISH since 2007 through its Serving Women on the Island (SWOTI) service team, providing grants totaling $21,025 to assist female clients with needs such as non-emergency transportation, medical and dental care, rent and utilities. A number of club members are regular FISH volunteers, and many were slated to help at the annual FISH 10K run set for Saturday, October 13. Swiersz joined FISH in 2009 as the organizations first social worker, and directs the Helping Hands program. Last month, she was honored by Lee County as a Good Samaritan. Having Christine on board has made a tremendous difference, since the needs of FISH clients are ever more complex, said Zontian Karen Storjohann, SWOTI co-chair. With her background, she is able to access other resources in the county, match clients with services, and even help with job searches. Many clients financial challenges are due to job loss or reduced hours. Swiersz described two case studies, one a single mom with an infant, struggling to balance child care, household finances, and career strategies, the other a woman in her 50s facing healthcare issues and diminished income due to illness. FISH is proud to report that approximately 90 percent of funds from grants, events and donations go directly to services; the remainder goes for administrative and fund raising costs. FISH has 200-plus volunteers but many are absent during summer months, and staff members work long hours to meet the organizations growing needs. For more information on FISH, visit www.fishofsanibel.com. The Zonta Club of Sanibel-Captiva is a service organization of professionals working together to improve the status of women, on the islands, in the Southwest Florida region and globally through Zonta International. The clubs major fundraiser, A Peek at the Unique, is set for March 16, 2013. This event makes possible annual grants such as those to FISH. For additional information, visit www. zontasancap.com.

Complaints notwithstanding, two sound compression tests conducted by the city and a company working for the church, showed the decibel level to be within the Sanibel codes of a maximum of 60 decibels at night and 66 in daytime. Sanibel Community Church has just completed a major expansion project on the 8.1-acre site on Periwinkle Way, and wants to start using the new 630-seat sanctuary for services. Dr. Mark Mathusa, of Island Woods subdivision, said he lives closest to the church and, like his neighbors, suffered through the year-long construction. When the construction died down we hoped our lives would return to normal. Unfortunately that is when the church cranked up seven a/c units 65 paces from my property line. The noise pervades his home and front yard. They are extremely loud. It sounds like an airport, he said. Mathusa said church officials had no interest in resolving this. This is a problem of their own making. They knew there would be a noise problem they did nothing about it. They insulted us by feigning interest in doing something, he added. Had the issue been addressed before the project was complete, it would have been a simple fix, Mathusa claimed. Ray Pavelka, representing the church, said he planned to test a blanket to baffle the compressors but if it doesnt work the church would not go to further expense to buy more blankets. He said a substantial vegetation buffer will eventually grow taller and thicker and will help reduce noise for residents. We have a great deal of empathy for our neighbors because they have put up with a lot of nuisances over the past year, Pavelka said. But he felt that the long, hot summer made the noise nuisance seem worse. Further complicating the matter was the suggestion by Pavelka and noted by one of the nearby residents, that raising the level of the site and replacing grass with blacktop was funneling noise from Jerrys Market next door across the church campus and over to Island Woods. Another Island Woods resident, Kurt Harjung, said the church expansion was the most ambitious projects he has seen in 20 years living on Sanibel. He called the vegetation buffer woefully inadequate, and said the project should have had a different level of review given that it adjoins a residential area. He said hed like to see enclosures, noise abatement panels or other measures put in place. The city ought to consider making things right with the neighbors, even though the church is in compliance, Harjung said.continued on page 47 Dr. Mark Mathusa, Island Woods resident, center in white shirt, along with other residents, in discussion with officials of Sanibel Community Church after the planning commission approved a revised plan that allows for seven air conditioning units instead of five New Restaurant Application Is ContinuedConsideration of a conditional use permit application for a new 40-seat doughnut, coffee and sandwich restaurant has been postponed until Tuesday, October 23 at 9:10 a.m. before the Sanibel Planning Commission. Planner Roy Gibson said two city departments need more time to review aspects of the application before making any recommendations. The applicant has agreed to the continuance, he noted. The applicant is JCKC LLC, the property owner, who wants to change the use of a commercial building from office to fast food restaurant use and make various building and site plan improvements. The parcel is located at 1020 Periwinkle Way, just east of the Lazy Flamingo.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 12, 201212 New Playground At Sanibel Congregational United Church Of ChristChildren now have a safe and fun place to play outside at Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ with the completion of a new playground. The playground was purchased and installed thanks to the generosity of the UCC congregation, as well as their willingness to help spread a semi-trailer load of mulch. A four-foot picket fence surrounding the playground, located behind the church at 2050 Periwinkle Way, keeps the kids and automobile traffic safely separated. It is yet another piece in continuing efforts to ensure that Sanibel Congregational UCC is a welcoming place for children and youth, as well as adults.

Her most notable position was as an event coordinator for Studio 54 in New York City. She has a BA in marketing with a minor in art and is certified to teach in New York grades K-6.

CROW transported it to the clinic after receiving a call from a good samaritan. No one could be sure how long had it been down. She was thin upon arrival, but otherwise bright, alert and responsive (BAR). X-rays were taken immediately; the only abnormality was an old fracture of the radius of its right wing that had already callused over. This injury may have caused it difficulty hunting, which would explain its low weight. The staff quickly prepared food for the bird which ate voraciously, a rarity for an osprey in captivity. Raptors are usually quite easy to hand feed, but ospreys generally will not eat in the clinic. On its second day, the medical staff performed a serum transfusion on the new patient because it was very anemic. Dr. Aundria would have preferred to perform a plasma transfusion, but the clinic didnt have enough tiny tubes to perform a plasma transfusion. You can do plasma, whole blood or serum transfusions, so we tried to opt for plasma first because it has more of the proteins in it which it needs because its levels are low. Fortunately, CROW had a donor osprey outside. They took the blood from the donor, spun the blood down to a serum, then administered 10 ml of serum to the new patient. Both patients were doing well after surgery and both ate well overnight. The new patient was given a thorough exam after two days of cage rest, at which time it was still standing but not yet perching. After more rest, Dr. Aundria rechecked its blood to determine if it responded to the transfusion. The bird was deemed ready for day camp. Day camp is often utilized for recovering patients and consists of taking them out to a species appropriate enclosure for four hours per day for a week before allowing them to be outside overnight. The day before putting this osprey out for the evening, bloodwork will again be performed to make sure its strong and gaining weight. Once CROW starts day camp, the staff will not fed the osprey in the clinic to see if it can compete with the other osprey in the flight cages. Its bloodwork will continue to be checked frequently. The osprey has been doing well and will soon be returned to soar over the skies of Captiva.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 12, 201218 Non-Stop Action On The Beaches Continuesby Capt. Matt MitchellWaters both in the bay and along the beaches are starting to come alive with massive schools of migrating bait fish and all the predators that feed on them. As these huge schools of bait make the annual migration south, look for some wide open action. Getting in on the feeding frenzy and catching what is feeding in the mix can be some of the most exciting non-stop fishing of the year. Its common to catch several species at just one location along with some much larger predators, too. This is opportunity fishing at its best and is just plain fun fishing action. With less than perfect tides all week for redfish fishing, it was a great time to go out to the beaches and get in on the fun. East winds gave us the perfect set-up most of the week if you wanted to give the gulfside buffet a shot and bend the rods with some of these migratory species. Spanish mackerel, bonita and sharks made up the majority of the targets from just outside of the passes to out within a few miles of the beach. When fishing out along the beaches, my preferred method is run and gun. Simply put, I run the boat until I see surface action of feeding birds and breaking fish. The feeding fish are pushing the bait up to the surface then the birds have at it from above. Both fish and birds are gorging themselves on these huge clouds of millions of glass minnows. Once I locate some action on the surface, I get the boat close enough that we can cast through the feeding fish with artificial lures. When choosing lures to pitch at the feeding frenzy, look for an artificial that is roughly the same size as the glass minnows the fish are feeding on. For me, the go-to is a small, heavy silver spoon or a small bucktail jig that looks like a glass minnow. I prefer lures that are rigged with a single J hook. Try to stay away from anything with treble hooks. J hooks make unhooking and releasing fish much less dangerous for both the angler and the fish. The heavier the lure, the further you can cast it, which makes hitting the fast moving, blitzing fish a little easier. Though most of the beachside action can be fished with artificial lures, I also like to have a few live baits and some larger cut bait ready to go. You never really know what you will come across in a wide open blitz. Sharks, king mackerel, cobia and tarpon will often pop up right among a heavy feed. Being rigged and ready for about anything is the key to getting the most out of this type of fishing. Often, as quickly as the fish show up, they will move on to the next bait school. Though this is not the most glamorous fishing our area has to offer, for sheer numbers of fish and wide open unpredictable action, it cannot be beat. As water temperatures continue to cool off, this sight-fishing action will only get better and better. For the next few months, any time I get the chance to go out and fish the bait migration while it is in full swing, Im there.Capt.

Family Finds Junonia On Captiva BeachJen Hanson and Frank Tardo rushed to The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum with their two children, Dalton and Molly Hanson Friday afternoon, October 5. They were anxious to verify that the shell their children found was a junonia. They were searching for shells on the Captiva side of Blind Pass when Dalton and Molly showed them the unusual shell. They found the shell under the shallow two feet of water. When they all discovered that the shell was a valuable find by nearby onlookers, they rushed to the museum to verify that it was a junonia. Museum staff members, including Dr. Jos H. Leal, the director, all verified the junonia. On vacation from Covington, Louisiana, the family is visiting the area with the hopes of relocating to Fort Myers in the coming year.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 12, 201220 Plant SmartOyster Plantby Gerri ReavesOne of the best things about the oyster plant (Tradescantia spathacea) is that its easy to rip out by the short stems. And thats the best option with this native of tropical America. Like many specimens introduced decades ago to South Florida as pretty landscape plants, this member of the spiderwort family escaped cultivation, gained a foothold in natural areas, and flourished to the detriment of native plant communities. Despite the benign common names of oyster plant, boat-lily and Moses-in-the-cradle, this groundcover has done its damage, thus the Florida Exotic Pest Plant Councils category-II status for this species. Among the dense groundcovers advantages over native species are its ability to prevent the seeds of native canopy trees from growing. Add to that drought tolerance and an ability to sprout easily from broken stems. It can even grow on rocks, in the crevices of buildings and on trees. The succulent-like colorful leaves form an overlapping spiral pattern. Stiff, pointed, and fleshy, they have purple undersides and green surfaces, sometimes with yellowish stripes. They are one to three inches wide and up to a foot long. The common name boat-lily refers to a boat-shaped bract, which contains the small white three-petaled flowers and the seed capsules. The plant produces flowers and seeds year round. Clearing the landscape of this invader frees up space for native and Florida-friendly groundcovers. Take care when handling the plant, for the sap can cause skin irritation. Sources: ifas.ufl.edu, fleppc.org and floridata.com.

21 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 12, 2012One Ocean, One Tribe: Holiday Camp At Sanibel Sea Schoolsubmitted by Jenna Sullivan Join Sanibel Sea School this holiday season for Holiday Camp 2012: One Ocean, One Tribe, where campers will celebrate how we are all connected on our ocean planet. Kids will explore the concept of unity as it relates to marine life: when do animals stick together in the ocean, and why do they do it? Whats up with that other cool school, the one formed by a group of fish? Does it help you or harm you to be nice to your neighbor, and how do these biological concepts apply to our own actions? At Holiday Camp, kids will recognize one big tribe: the Ocean Tribe. They will explore San Carlos Bay in canoes, practicing maneuvering skills like they are fish in a school. They will look for those famously friendly, unified pods of dolphins, and do a little surfing like them as well. They will play games and make art that brings us together and teaches about unity in the ocean. At the end of the week, they will blow paint their handprints onto the building, a permanent reminder of the Sanibel Sea School tribe. This year, the sea school is doing things a little differently. Since families want to be together as much as possible during the holidays, you are invited to enroll in our new half-day Holiday Camp, where everyone can integrate family love and ocean love. One session will be held from 9 a.m. to noon, and the other will run from 1 to 4 p.m. Qualitatively, the sessions will be equal -one will not be better than the other with both sessions offering similar activities each week. The camp welcome kids ages six through 13. Tuition for Week 1 (three half-days, December 26 to 28) will cost $90 per child; Week 2 (five half-days, December 31 to January 4) will be $150 per child. A one-time $50 registration fee will cover associated costs. Register by calling 472-8585.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 12, 201222 An SCCF volunteer pulls a plastic chair from the edges of the mangrovesJoin SCCF For Monofilament Madness EventsThere are many ways to help protect wildlife in our own backyards and local waterways. During a fishing trip in Blind Pass this summer with a local guide, fish were caught but then SCCF volunteers took the time to remove hooks and monofilament line from two pelicans. One of those pelicans already had a rip in its pouch in addition to the hook they removed. On Thursday, October 18 (lowtide walk) and Saturday, October 20 (kayak trip), volunteers can join a larger group to remove line and debris from local mangroves. Call Dee at 472-2329 for required reservations. If you know of a place that needs cleaning up, just go do it but please take pictures and send via email to dserage@sccf.org.

However, Seaver takes a culinary, humanitarian spin to advocacy. To use his words, Im not trying to save the fish. Im trying to save dinner. Seaver graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in New York City in 2001, and since has been a chef in restaurants all over the world. His work has won numerous accolades, including Esquire Magazines Chef of the Year title in 2009 and Rising Culinary Star of the Year by the Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington. His food is delicious, but his message of sustainability is even better Seaver extends his knowledge and expertise far beyond the table to promote oceanhealthy fishing practices and seafood consumption. He was recognized for these efforts in 2010 as a National Geographic Fellow and in 2008 as a Seafood Champion by the Seafood Choices Alliance. His first book, For Cod & Country: Simple, Delicious, Sustainable Cooking, is written to help engage all of us in food that is sustainable, delicious and healthy for everyone (including the planet). Please join START in welcoming Barton Seaver into our community on Sunday, October 14 at the Sanibel Island Bookshop from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. Learn more about how the choices you make about what you eat for dinner can help save our oceans. For Cod & Country is part of Seavers mission to help us engage in a more sustainable food system on nearly every level. The story of successful conservation is a lesson of responsible consumption. It is a tale of the opportunity that we have to make tasty and personally sustaining choices that keep our needs in balance with what the world can provide. Also, Seaver will appear at Sweet Melissas Caf on Sanibel that same evening beginning at 6 p.m. Chef Melissa Talmage will host an eloquent evening of eclectic dishes, delectable wine and the chance to be up close and personal with Seaver to learn more about the critical issues of the worlds seafood supplies. Each of the four courses will be paired with a complementing wine. The exhibition kitchen will allow guests to observe Chef Melissa and her kitchen brigade prepare the meal while Chef Barton shares his ocean friendly and holistic approach to enjoying the bounty of the sea in a sustainable and healthy manner. The cost to attend this dinner is $100 per person. Call the restaurant at 472-1956 for more information or to register. Coyote And Bear Tales At SCCFOn Wednesday, October 17, come to the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundations Nature Center and learn about two newcomer species to the islands. A coyote and a Florida black bear were documented on the island for the first time in the winter of 2011. Come and learn about the behaviors of these two new species and how to live with them. Coyotes have now moved into every county in Florida. Both human and bear populations are growing in Florida. The island black bear was recently relocated to a new territory and then needed to be relocated again. There is a family of coyotes that islanders will here again this winter season when the snowbirds arrive and the song dogs sing in response to sirens. Coyote and Bear Tales is free to children and SCCF members, or $5 for adults. The program starts at 10 a.m. Call 472-2329 for more information. Coyote family


ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 12, 201224 Birds Eye ViewBald Eagle Nesting Season Is Beginningby Mark Bird WestallIt is now October and Sanibels bald eagles will start laying eggs before long. I will be watching one particular nest with an eagle eye, so-to-speak. Last spring, in the middle of nesting season, I worked in cooperation with the staff at the SanibelCaptiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) and the Lee County Electric Cooperative (LCEC) to erect an artificial platform specifically designed to attract the eagle pair at SCCFs West Sanibel River Preserve. This pair has had a tough time of it lately. Their original nest tree had been accidently killed several years ago because when the habitat crews went onto the preserve to poison the invasive Australian pines on the property, they saw no nest in the nest tree and did their job. Unfortunately, large eagle nests fall out of Australian pines quite often because this species of tree makes a terrible place for an eagle nest. These exotic pine trees satisfy the height criteria that the eagle pair is looking for, but the shape of an Australian pine is not usually conducive for the nest to survive very long. The next time you get a chance, compare the shape of an Australian pine to that of a slash pine and youll see what I mean. Therefore, the birds are always having to rebuild their nests if their first choice is an Australian pine. After realizing their honest mistake, the staff at SCCF immediately called me to see if I would be interested in building an artificial nest in the dying tree, one that would be able to stay together as long as the nest tree itself remained standing. Of course, I agreed to do the project and was proud to say that, even though the nest tree was no longer alive, the nest looked completely natural. The artificial nest was approximately 70 feet up in the air and it was quite exciting putting it together. The day of the construction was slightly breezy and every once in a while, I had to wait for several seconds to work on the nest as the wind would drift the cherry picker and tree too far apart for me to reach the nest. Thus built, this artificial nest in the dead Australian pine was successfully used for several years. Unfortunately, the dead tree finally fell during a fall cold front last year and the birds have been trying to find a suitable new site ever since. When I first began serving on Lee Countys Bald Eagle Technical Advisory Committee (ETAC) way back in the mid1980s, there were still many people (sometimes even from the scientific community) who did not believe it was possible to get bald eagles to utilize artificial sites. I said Hogwash! The problem was that people have a difficult time thinking like an eagle. It was easier for people to accept the idea that ospreys would nest at artificial sites because humans accidently were building structures that satisfied the needs of the ospreys. We put up utility poles, nice, big houses with beautiful, high chimneys, etc. The ospreys would look at these developments of man and say, I always wondered why humans existed; now I know. Its to build wonderful nesting sites for us! I have been asked many times by owners of an osprey nest on their chimney, Why dont they nest out in the mangroves of the refuge? There are plenty of trees there. Isnt that where theyd rather be? Today, because of Hurricane Charley, there actually are a lot of potential nesting sites in the mangroves since the upper half of the canopy was mutilated and many snags perfect for nest building were left standing. But before Charley, the canopy of the mangroves was fairly uniform and nesting sites were limited. Just because there are lots of trees, does not necessarily translate into suitable habitat for the wildlife. Once the ospreys showed us that they would nest on manmade structures, we were then able to use our intelligence to purposefully build nest structures to satisfy that need. The situation for bald eagles is different, however. We do not accidently build human-oriented structures that satisfy the needs of that species. Eagles want to have their nest at or above the surrounding canopy, just like ospreys. But in Florida, eagles prefer to have plenty of shade over the nest to protect the young from the searing heat. Ospreys do not usually need this shade because the female osprey stays on the nest and uses her body to create shade. With bald eagles, both parents habitually leave the nest and forage for food, leaving the young chicks vulnerable to heat exhaustion.I noticed these criteria in bald eagle nest site selection in Florida and have been successful in getting seven pairs now in Lee County to use artificial nests. Granted, most of those artificial nests where situated in natural trees, but one nest on Hogan Key, up near Boca Grande, was a totally free-standing structure. In March of this year, we erected the new, totally artificial-looking platform and, hopefully, it will eventually serve as a more permanent home for the eagles. But before we could erect the new platform, and after several attempts to find a suitable natural nest site in the area, the eagles began putting sticks in another dead Australian pine not too far away from where the new platform eventually was erected. From this new natural site, they watched as the platform was erected. Bald eagles, like ospreys, are pretty continued on page 26 $ 8. 00 OFF ANY BOTTLE BOTTLE $ $ 25 OR MORE. 25 OR MORE. ALL EVENING.

25 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 12, 2012 The Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation thanks all of the 160 volunteers who helped make the 27th annual Coastal Cleanup a great success. High tides and onshore winds associated with Tropical Storm Debbie and Hurricane Isaac had pushed debris scoured from the offshore bottom up into the beach vegetation, more debris than in past years. Participants this year included Edison National Bank/Bank of the Islands, Lexington Middle School, The Canterbury School, Sanibel-Captiva Optimist Club and Southwest Florida Addiction Services. Island kids brought their moms and made a dent in their required community service hours. Most disgusting debris was 200-plus cigarette butts from the sand around a local resorts beach chairs. Youngest participant goes to Ally Flynt from Bank of the Islands. Ally participated with her mom, Vanessa, last year and from her stroller this year.

From page 24Birds Eye Viewtenacious about sticking with a nest site once a choice has been made; though they may have a few backup sites. Something usually has to happen to that nest site before the pair will move to another potential nest site in the nesting territory. Possible disturbances include nests falling out of the tree, great-horned owls commandeering the nest, human disturbances, etc. Therefore, I suspect the eagles will continue putting new sticks in the recently chosen dead Australian pine. Unfortunately, this nest site is just as unstable as the other sites that were experimented with last fall and winter. So far, the nest is only partially built and I suspect that a fully developed nest will not survive. All we can do now is watch and hope. At least, if the current natural nest falls apart, the eagles will have something more solid to move to this time. Lets keep our fingers crossed!

The event, along with oyster shucking and a beer shucking competitions, was the highlight of New Yorks Oyster Week, which culminated on September 29. Williams, twotime winner of The Timbers oyster eating contest where he consumed 48 oysters in one minute thought he would have it easy at the New York competition, which consisted of eating only 12 oysters as fast as possible. As the 20 contestants were poised to begin slurping, they were informed by the judges of one additional rule: no hands. The oysters had to be sucked out of the shells using their mouths only! This did not slow down Williams, who managed to slurp down the dozen oysters in less than 17 seconds. In addition, Timbers proprietor Matt Asen judged the oyster shucking contest. For more information, visit www.oysterweek.com. This year, in addition to the 3rd annual oyster eating contest, The Timbers will have its first annual oyster shucking competition.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 12, 201228 Project Tolerance Exhibit Opens October 15 Faces of Anne Frank: Project Tolerance, an exhibit with paintings by Myra Roberts, will be on display in BIG ARTS Founders Gallery from October 15 through December 1. An artists reception will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Friday, November 2. The exhibit will feature the original series of powerful paintings of Anne Frank by Sanibel artist Myra Roberts. The paintings originally debuted to critical acclaim at the Holocaust Museum of Southwest Florida in Naples. Anne Frank is widely known for the diary she kept of her life during the two years she and her family spent hiding from the Nazis an attic in Amsterdam. Roberts traveled to Holland in the summer of 2010 to see the Anne Frank Museum. That experience inspired her to spend the next 18 months carefully converting Franks journal entries into the original oil paintings included in this exhibit. Roberts 30 paintings in this series were published in a full-color catalog called Project Tolerance: The Faces of Anne Frank. Of the work, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton wrote, Your artwork is very moving and I am grateful to you for undertaking this effort to promote tolerance by sharing the story of Anne Frank. BIG ARTS will host an ARTSalon on Project Tolerance at 3 p.m. on Friday, November 2 with Ella Nayor and Myra Roberts. Nayor, author of Faces of Tolerance: Everyone Counts, worked with Roberts to create this multimedia presentation, which includes a film by Rusty Farst. It is my dream that through our work, we will spark thought and enlightenment about intolerance and hatred, Nayor said. If we start taking the time to see each other as people all belonging to one human family, we can begin to live more peacefully as a planet. ARTSalon is an opportunity to talk with professionals in artistic fields to better understand their creative process. Tickets are $5. Founders Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Exhibit supported by Founders Gallery Grand Patron Series Sponsor Deborah and John La Gorce. Visit www.BIGARTS.org for more information. BIG ARTS is at 900 Dunlop Road or call BIG ARTS Marks Box Office at 395-0900. Open Call To Audition For SpamalotBIG ARTS Herb Strauss Theater invites local talent to come out for an open casting call to recruit local singer/dancers for Monty Pythons Spamalot. Auditions will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. on Monday, October 22 at the theater, located at 2200 Periwinkle Way on Sanibel. Herb Strauss Theater is seeking two male ensemble and one female ensemble members, high school age or older. To audition, performers need to prepare 32 bars of a song and bring sheet music in the correct key; an accompanist will be provided. Performers should also have a contrasting vocal selection ready if asked, and be prepared to dance. Audition attendees must bring headshot and resume stapled together. All Herb Strauss Theater productions require two weeks of rehearsals leading up to a shows opening, including day and evening rehearsals. The roles require performers to attend all performances and two weeks of rehearsals, which start on Thursday, December 27. Spamalot performances are 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday evenings, January 11 through February 16, with Wednesday matinees at 2 p.m. on January 23 and February 6. Winner of the 2005 Tony Award for Best Musical, Monty Pythons Spamalot tells the legendary tale of King Arthur and his knights of the Round Table. Featuring a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits and flatulent French people, Spamalot is a little slice of historical lunacy. This musical comedy was lovingly ripped off from the 1975 film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail. BIG ARTS Herb Strauss Theater presents Broadway-caliber talent in an intimate (160 seat) atmosphere. For more information about this audition, contact Bobby Logue, theater production manager, at 472-9830. For more information about upcoming events at Herb Strauss Theater, visit www.

From page 1Celebrity Island Dinnerphotos by Ken Rasi Sandy Stilwell David and Anne Joffe Karen Bell and Dan Schuyler Danny Duncan Krista Fogelsong Mark Blust Mary Bondurant offers a tip to Matt Asen during the Celebrity Waiter Dinner, held October 3 at Traders one-of-a-kind restaurant experience. Celebrity waiters worked hand-in-hand with Traders staff during the evening. Some celebrities followed their real waiters every step of the way and insisted on tips for every service provided during the evening. Other waiters earned their place by haranguing attendees to play carnival games, which happened to be available in the restaurant that evening. Dan Schuyler, celebrity waiter, received tips for grinding pepper on salads and removing empty plates in record time. Chris Workman, a local island favorite, performed throughout the evening as guests dined and tipped their celebrities. Local restaurants and businesses donated gift baskets for the silent auction and the higher priced items including a sterling silver necklace from Lily & Co. Jewelry Gallery were purchased during a short live auction, bringing the total raised for the museum to around $5,800. The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum board and staff thanks the Traders amazing team and appreciates all the efforts of the celebrity waiters.

But appearances can be deceptive. Get the facts before going forth into the fray. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Bullying others into agreeing with your position could cause resentment. Instead, persuade them to join you by making your case on a logical point-by-point basis. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Resist pushing for a workplace decision you might feel is long overdue. Your impatience could backfire. Meanwhile, focus on that still-unsettled personal situation. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your aspects favor doing something different. You might decide to redecorate your home, or take a trip somewhere youve never been, or even change your hairstyle. LEO (July 23 to August 22) You might want to take a break from your busy schedule to restore your energy levels. Use this lesshectic time to also reassess your plans and make needed changes. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) What you like to think of as determination might be seen by others as nothing more than stubbornness. Try to be more flexible if you hope to get things resolved. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Watch that you dont unwittingly reveal workrelated information to the wrong person. Best to say nothing until you get official clearance to open up. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) With things settling down at work or at home, you can now take on a new challenge without fear of distraction. Be open to helpful suggestions from colleagues. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Your creativity can help resolve an emotional situation that might otherwise get out of hand. Continue to be your usual caring, sensitive self. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) You could impress a lot of influential people with the way you untangle a few knotty problems. Meanwhile, a colleague is set to share some welcome news. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Aspects favor recharging your social life and meeting new people. Its also a good time to renew friendships that might be stagnating due to neglect on both sides. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Congratulations. Your talent for working out a highly technical problem earns you welldeserved praise. The weekend could bring news about a friend or relative. BORN THIS WEEK: Your sense of justice makes you a strong advocate for the rights of people and animals alike. On Oct. 18, 1767, Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon complete their survey of the boundary between the colonies of Pennsylvania and Maryland, as well as areas that would become Delaware and West Virginia.

On Oct. 17, 1973, the Arab-dominated Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) announces a decision to cut oil exports to the United States.

It was beloved American actress Katharine Hepburn who made the following sage observation: If you always do what interests you, at least one person is pleased. Half of the Earths surface is covered by the Pacific Ocean. Need more evidence that portion sizes in America are getting larger? In the 1964 edition of the iconic Joy of Cooking, a recipe for chocolate chip cookies was said to yield 45 servings. When the cookbooks 1997 edition was published, the same recipe was said to yield 36 servings. The original name of the city of Melbourne, Australia, was Batmania. In the original calculations made by NASA experts, a landing on the moon was thought to have only a 5 percent chance of success. In rural Wisconsin in 1921, two thirdgrade students in a one-room schoolhouse became sweethearts. At the end of the school year, Lorraine Beatty and Mac McKitrick lost touch with each other. This story would be unremarkable, except for what happened 87 years later. In 2009, their brothers, who had become friends, brought the couple back together again. Shortly thereafter, the couple married and moved in with each other in a retirement home. The 12th president of the United States, Zachary Taylor, let his horse graze on the White House lawn. The oldest government building in the country actually predates the nation: The Palace of the Governors in Santa Fe, N.M., was built in 1610. Youth is like having a big plate of candy. Sentimentalists think they want to be in the pure, simple state they were in before they ate the candy. They dont. They just want the fun of eating it all over again. -F.

Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellThe BaileyMatthews Shell Museum on Sanibel is listed in the 1,000 places to see before you die. The museums director, Jos H. Leal, Ph.D., stopped by last Friday and Rotarians got a chance to reacquaint themselves to the fact that this world-class shell museum, educational center and library is a draw to visitors throughout the world. Fifty thousand visitors a year visit the museum to view the amazing comprehensive shell collections housed at the museum and a number of marine scientists and professionals conduct scientific study and research in its exceptional scientific library. Interest in establishing a museum dedicated entirely to shells and mollusks and their importance to the environment began as far back as 1985 on the island, but took another 10 years of dedicated time and effort by a founding committee chaired by Betts Johnson and the establishing of The Shell Museum and Research Foundation, Inc. to raise capital to make that dream come true. Full speed ahead for the committee, guided by the renowned malacologist R. Tucker Abbott, Ph.D., active supporters began a membership drive to bring together interest in this project. In 1990, island residents Francis, Samuel and John Bailey gifted eight acres of land in memory of their parents Frank P. Bailey and Annie Mead Matthews as the location for the museum. The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum opened its capital campaign office, and Dr. Abbott was appointed Founding Director in 1991, which imparted to the museum substantial and definitive professional standing. Actor Raymond Burr became the capital campaigns chair and the museums building officially opened on November 18, 1995, two weeks after the death of Dr. Abbott. The Scientific Director position at the museum was then filled in 1996 by marine biologist Jos H. Leal, Ph.D. Today, the Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum holds the impressive distinction of being one of a rare group of non-profit American Association of Museums accredited museums. It has an educational program partnering with the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge that buses in 2,000 fourth graders in the community for educational programs. It also brings in selected high school seniors for motivational purposes toward scientific study and does a docent training course for sixth grade students at The Sanibel School, who serve as educators at the Sanibel Shell Fair & Shows live touch tank. In addition, the museum hosts worldwide professionals in the fields of environmental and marine sciences, biology and ecology for research and study. Dr. Leal also serves as editor of The Nautilus, a peer-reviewed journal publishing articles on diverse aspects of the biology, ecology and systematics of mollusks, home based at the museum. Why should you visit The BaileyMatthews Shell Museum? Because it is an amazing place! It houses 30 well designed and themed exhibits, both attractive and educational. Tourist and islanders cant help but be fascinated by the shells on our beaches. Go to the beach, pick up a shell or two... or three. Want to learn about that shell and others on the beach? Go to the museum. You may be surprised at how much you will learn, not only about Sanibel shells but about shells found on the beaches around the world. Learning can be fun and, yes, you can have fun at the Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum, if you open your mind to the wonder, beauty and bounty of nature. 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.

From page 1Shore Haven Movedmiles away with the assistance of crews from Flint & Doyle as well as SteMic Marine Construction. Once all of the logistics involved with moving the building onto the Dunlop Road site had been finalized, which included coordinating electrical and cable/Internet outages along the 3.25-mile route, Shore Haven joined the nine historic structures including the recently relocated Caretakers Cottage, which housed AfricanAmerican workers employed at Shore Haven through the 1940s within the museums village. According to museum manager Emilie Alfino, the Dutch Colonial-style building will be used to welcome guests, display artifacts, artwork and rotating collections as well as provide additional storage for museum inventory. In addition, it will allow the museum to host catered events. We are very excited because now we will be able to have catered events on site, said Alfino. Every museum has one modern building where people check-in, watch video presentations, something that is used as a welcome facility. And now, we are going to have that. Shortly after 10 a.m. on October 3, Shore Haven squeezed past the trees and temporarily removed welcome signs for BIG ARTS and the Sanibel Historical Museum & Village at the entrance of the parking lot off Dunlop Road. One of the museums light fixtures was taken down as the building was carried to its final resting place, next to the 1913 Rutland House on the eastern portion of the property. While Shore Haven was donated to the museum, the total costs involved with moving the historic structure are approximately $171,400. By contrast, the expense of moving the two-room Caretakers Cottage last month cost $21,000. Eugene Gavin, who is the authority of African-American history on the islands, suggested that the Caretakers Cottage be moved here. I have to give him credit for that, said Werner. Truly, it is our final opportunity to preserve the history of the original black families who lived on Sanibel. The foundations for both new buildings are expected to be completed before the museum reopens to the public on Wednesday, November 7. For additional information, visit www.sanibelmuseum.org.

Master Sponsor: PGA TipsToe Up To Toe Upby Matt Oakley, PGA Golf ProfessionalGolf can be a very simple game once we understand some basic swing principals. Golf is played toe up to toe up. This principal gives us both the direction and distance we desire in every golf shot. Before I go through how to get your club toe up to toe up, I must explain that the toe I speak of is the toe of the golf club. When you look at the face of the club, the toe is the part at the end and the heel is the end that is connected to the shaft. Here are the principals and how to get your club toe up to toe up: Position #1 When we swing the golf club back, position #1 is where the club has reached parallel to the ground, parallel to the target line and the toe of the golf club should be pointing towards the sky. When you get to position #1, if one or all of these things are not done, bad things will happen at impact. If the toe is pointing up, that means the hands have done the proper amount of rotation in the backswing and you will be able to hit solid shots. From this position, simply turn your body to the top of the backswing and hit the ball. Position #2 After impact, the club reaches the exact same position on the opposite side of your body. On the follow through, the checkpoint is when the club is again parallel to the ground, parallel to the target line and the toe of the club should be pointed towards the sky. If one or all of these things are not done, your shot will be poor. This is the basic PGA principal that golf is played toe up to toe up. Take small practice swings and check your positions in the backswing and followthough to see that you are indeed toe up to toe up. This makes hitting solid golf shots easy and simple. SPORTS QUIZ 1.

39 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 12, 2012 Triathlon Raises $10,000 For Local Hungry ChildrenCommunity Cooperative Ministries, Inc. received $10,000 from proceeds raised at the 2nd annual Galloway Captiva Triathlon held on September 15 and 16 at South Seas Island Resort. CCMI is an innovative nonprofit 501(c)3 organization made up of social service entrepreneurs fighting to end homelessness and hunger in our community. The agency provides more than 15,000 meals each month through its Everyday Caf and Marketplace and Home Delivered Meals programs. CCMI also educates 40 children in its Community Montessori, offers homeless and comprehensive case management services through its United Way Resource Houses and oversees an emergency mobile food pantry. The proceeds raised at the event will go toward supporting CCMIs School Backpack Program, providing emergency food to more than 2,500 local children each school year. The program helps reduce child hunger and improves health and academic outcomes providing support for children and families in need. We are so thankful for this donation and being named the beneficiary of the Captiva Tri, said Tracey Galloway, CEO of CCMI. Its community support like this race that will help thousands of food-insecure children in our area maintain access to food on the weekends and school holidays. Last year, the Captiva Tri raised $6,500 for CCMI. According to race organizers, this years event also included the opportunity for participants to donate directly to the backpack program and participate in team fundraising for CCMI. We were so pleased to be working with CCMI again, said certified race director Kate Gooderham. They do such fantastic and needed work in our community, and we were excited to be able to expand our fundraising efforts for them as a part of this years event. We are always looking for new ways to partner with community groups and create special events to spread our mission of being innovators in the fight against hunger and homelessness, said Galloway. CCMI serves Fort Myers and the greater Lee County area, including Bonita Springs, Cape Coral and Lehigh Acres. CCMI works in partnership with United Way of Lee, Hendry and Glades, Harry Chapin Food Bank and various community foundations as well as collaborating with fellow community and service groups including The School District of Lee County and numerous churches, businesses and community support organizations.

Check presentation following the 2nd annual Captiva Triathlon on September 16 Red Sox And Twins Last Place Finishes Require Major Overhauls Before Next Season Beginsby Ed FrankLet the dismantling begin! After a disastrous 2012 season when both the Boston Red Sox and the Minnesota Twins finished dead last in their respective American League divisions, wholesale changes to both teams are certain to be made. In fact, they have already begun. The Twins at 66-96, the worst record in the American League for the second year in a row, last week fired bullpen coach Rick Stelmaszek, third base coach Steve Liddle, first base coach Jerry White and head trainer Rick McWane. Also reassigned to minor positions within the organization were bench coach Scott UIlger and hitting coach Joe Vavra It was a difficult day for us, because most of those guys were with us 20-plus years, said general manager Terry Ryan, who removed his title as interim GM and has returned to the GM role he held from 1994 to 2007. And for the first time, manager Ron Gardenhire appears on shaky ground after not being offered an extension to his contract that expires after next season. I explained it to Ron and he accepted that, Ryan said. He said he didnt deserve an extension. Gardenhire had won six division titles in his first nine years as Twins manager. Ryan was the first to admit that acquiring starting pitching will be his top priority in the off-season after his starters this year had the worst ERA in the American League. Only rookie Scott Diamond with a 12-9 record finished with an ERA below 4.00. Were going to have to make good decisions to create a pitching staff thats going to give us a chance, Ryan said. It appears that the Twins must go the free-agency route to obtain the pitching they need as little help is in the pipeline via the farm system. Last years Minor League Pitcher of the Year Liam Hendriks struggled all season and top prospect Kyle Gibson is coming off Tommy John surgery. As for the Red Sox, their first order of business was to fire manager Bobby Valentine as had been expected. Bostons 69-93 record was their poorest since 1965, and the first time the team finished in last place since the present ownership took over 11 years ago. And not since 1934 had the Red Sox fired a manager after only one season. Valentines relationship with his players and coaches began to sour even before the season began and deteriorated as the season progressed. The Red Sox blockbuster trade in mid-season cleared more than $250 million from the team payroll, setting in motion what is sure to be an active off-season for general manager Ben Cherington and his staff. What is absolutely certain are both the Twins and Red Sox will have a far different look when they return here in February for the 2013 Spring Training Season. Fort Myers Miracle, Twins Continue Partnership Through 2014 A player development partnership that began 20 years ago was extended for another two years, the Fort Myers Miracle and the Minnesota Twins announced last week. It is the longest running Minor League affiliation in the Twins organization. A total of 21 players who played for the Twins last season on their Major League roster had played their early professional years for the Miracle. Everblades Open 2012-13 Season This Weekend The Florida Everblades begin defense of their ECHL Kelly Cup Championship this weekend with season-opening games against the new Orlando Solar Bears at Germain Arena. Florida defeated the Bears, a first-year entry in the league, twice in pre-season games. The season opener is tonight, Friday, at 7:30 p.m. followed by Saturdays contest at 7 p.m. The teams championship banner will be raised tonight. The first 2,500 fans will receive a mini-championship banner. 8-Ball Pool League Starts Play October 22The Sanibel 8-Ball Pool League will start its 21-week season on Monday, October 22. This year, the league will have eight teams playing two shifts on the two tables at American Legion Post 123. Now in its sixth year, the league has had more than 100 shooters compete in league matches. Play starts at 5 p.m., with four players from each team playing four matches. The season ends on Monday, March 25. On the following Monday night, a blind draw tournament for league players will again be run at the Legion. This event is followed by an annual awards banquet, also held at the Legion. League teams this year are: Odd Balls Captain Kip Buntrock; Sanibel Caf Captain Richard McCurry; Fresh Legion Crew Captain Gator Gates; Bathroom Magic Captain Dennis Bender; Bunts Ball Busters Captain Bob Buntrock; Deep Pockets Captain Tom Schaner; Island Lifers Captain Connie Martin; and Sandycappers Captain Kevin Pottorf. Last years champions, Bathroom Magic, are back to defend their title. Three-time league winners, Bunts Ball Busters, look to regain the title that slipped away in the final match of last season. The Odd Balls, first year champions, are attempting to recruit some super shooters to again contend for the league crown. The remaining teams have dreams of a league championship and have been practicing all summer to achieve the goal. Spectators are welcome at all of the matches.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 12, 201240 Sanibel-Captiva KiwanisKiwanis Kornersubmitted by Eric PfeiferThe Kiwanis Clubs bragging rights were on the line this week while handing out Happy Dollars for the big football wins over the weekend. Jay Richter (Florida State) and Bob Wimbush (Northwestern) were unusually silent and NOT not reaching for their wallets, while Doug Congress didnt say a word about his Gators, fearing their 5-0 record might be somewhat of a fluke. I just always get nervous about playing Vanderbilt (this weekend), so I dont want to say anything yet, said Congress. At our weekly breakfast meeting, we were proud to hand out two checks to groups very near and dear to our heart. As stated by Kiwanis International, Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one child, and one community, at a time. So it was very poignant to be able to present a check to The Sanibel School for $12,000. Principal Barbara Von Harten graciously accepted our check and thanked us for our continued support over the years. The funds will be used to support the programs which made The Sanibel School the number one school in the state out of Floridas 3,078 public schools. Alan Marcus stood extremely tall and proud as he handed Von Harten the check. Of equal importance to our club is our continued support of FISH of Sanibel. Bill Fellows joined us for breakfast so he could accept our donation and update us on the progress of FISH. While many people think there cant possibly be much need for food and support on the islands, Fellows stated that they helped 578 households last year. There are currently 125 families who need help on a regular basis. Help comes in the form of food, medical supplies, transportation and financial assistance. Not only do we pride ourselves on helping the community, but three of our members and one spouse are board members of FISH. Fellows said they work very closely with other local assistance programs like Friends Who Care and Helping Hands, and they currently provide 42 backpacks of food for local kids who might otherwise go hungry after they leave school. If you would like to provide additional help, these 42 backpacks do not cover all of the kids who need supplemental food. To learn more about how you can help, visit their website at http://fishofsanibel.com. Also, dont forget about the 10K Race 4 FISH this Saturday, October 13. It is a great community event to support those local families who could use a little help right now. Just dont run over the parking attendants when you show up in the dark that morning! If you would like to help out our community and feel you could endure the breakfast of champions with us, please feel free to join us at The Dunes every Tuesday morning at 7:30 a.m. We are looking for a few more people who know how to cook spaghetti, light candles and park cars. There is a short six-week training course and a very easy test to see if you have what it takes to call yourself a Kiwanian. We look forward to seeing you!

41 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 12, 2012 From page 1The Zombie House Partyconcealer or foundation base in these colors. Also, purchase some dark eyeshadow, eyeliner and baby powder. Apply the base over your entire face and down your neck to get that unhealthy pallor. Get directly under a light source and start using eye shadow to accent sunken areas of your face, such as your eye sockets. Find shadows and darken those a lot. Black out your eyes completely. Make it look like your eye sockets have shrunken in about an inch. Use baby powder on your face to make your skin look dull and dead. Step 2: Mess up your hair. Try to make your hair look like you just rolled out of a grave. Backcomb it at the roots. Apply hairspray, then use a small comb to brush hair in the opposite direction (toward the roots). Do this in small sections. Apply baby powder. Rub some baby powder into your hair to make it look grey and ashen. Step 3: Make fake blood. For one fluid cup (probably more than youll ever use), do this: 1 cup of corn syrup or pancake syrup. 1 to 2 tablespoons of red food coloring. Some chocolate syrup, like the kind you put on ice cream (not a shell type). A couple small drops of blue or green food coloring, for color preference. This will give your blood a deeper, more realistic red. Mix well and add small amounts of water until desired consistency/smearing factor is achieved. Step 4: Apply fake blood. Heres the fun part, unless you get sick easily. Go nuts. Give yourself some wounds of some kind. Dribble blood into your hairline and let it run down your face, arms, legs and hands. If you want bullet holes, get a really black marker and draw holes on your shirt then dribble down some blood around it. For the I just got done munching on the neighbor look, pour a fair amount of blood into your hand, and then eat it, to get a nice mouth smear. Then, put some more in your mouth (this mix is non-toxic, unlike some others) and let it dribble down your chin and throat. If you have time, allow some blood to dry a little (about 10 minutes) and then re-apply another layer differently, to get a nice effect. Step 5: Get your costume looking right. Here are the basic steps for getting your clothes properly trashed. Go outside and roll around in dirt. Try and find some mud and roll in it. While applying fake blood, make sure youre messy, and get it on your clothes. This stuff runs and seeps in quite well and looks extremely convincing. Use a knife or other pointed implement (carefully!) and rip holes into your costume. Step 6: Act zombie-like. Zombies are slow, stiff, dim-witted, cant talk well, if at all, and crave human flesh. Make moaning and gasping sounds when you breathe through your mouth. Your jaw should hang slack at most times. If you must make other noises, talk in gibberish or moan louder/higher. Moaning always works. Shamble, dont walk. Lean forward and almost fall with every step. Adding a limp or dragging one leg works great as well. Swing your arms limply, like you dont ever use them. When passing people, growl or groan at them and wave your arms. Some higher-level zombies tend to moan for BRAINS! as well. Step 7: Cleanup. Oh, yes, the lame part when youre finished. Take a shower. This blood mixture will usually come off pretty quickly with hot water, but make sure you scrub down and wash your hair several times. If you have light hair, it might get stained. If youre not throwing your clothes away, put them in the washer by themselves. Usually, the blood will wash out. Also, just in case you need some more help with your scary look, face painting will be available at the party. Snacks will be served tapas-style to allow partiers to mingle, move around and enjoy the entertainment. Alcoholic beverages will be available by donation. Sanibel Sea School will be helping us host this party. Finally, to complete the theme, a Bloodmobile from Lee Memorial Blood Center will be at The Community House from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. accepting blood donations. Your donation of blood will be much appreciated. Tickets for the Zombie House Party are $20 per person and should be reserved in advance by calling the Community House at 472-2155. The Rocky Horror Picture Show is coming to Sanibel. The cult classic film will be shown at The Community House on Friday, October 19 and audience participation is encouraged. Just after 10 p.m., when the Zombie House Party winds down, the show will begin. The Velvet Darkness, Fort Myers Rocky Horror Picture Show shadow cast, will bring the movie to life. Come in costume if you like and bring your prop bag. Suggestions for prop bags include: toilet paper, newspaper, party hat, latex glove, playing cards, rice, confetti, noise maker. No water guns, wet food or lighters, please. Flashlights and cell phones are allowed. Tickets are $5. Beverages will be available by donation. You must be 18 or older to attend. Advance ticket purchase is recommended. Order by credit card by calling The Community House at 472-2155 or stop by 2173 Periwinkle Way between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.

School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My child has a learning disability and we struggle with homework. Hes in sixth grade and the homework load and the struggles are increasing. How can I help him? Shana J., Cape Coral Shana, Most families have homework struggles, however, this struggle is definitely increased when a child has a learning disability. Here are a few suggestions adapted from Dawn Materas article, 4 Keys To Managing Homework For Children with Learning Disabilities, which you may find helpful. 1. Teach your child to think about thinking (meta-cognitive skills) by asking some thoughtful questions before you begin the homework session. Instead of asking What did you do in school today? or Do you have homework? questions that typically get a nonresponse try some of these questions instead: What did you learn in Science, Math, English, etc. today? Did you take notes? Did you get handouts? Was homework assigned? These questions will open up a dialogue that will help you understand the context of the assignments. Reflecting on each class helps your child make connections to his day and helps him recall both homework assignments and the concepts that were covered in class. Remember that the goal is to have your child more involved in the learning process and connect to the daily homework session. 2. Focus on planning and organizing the homework tasks by using calendars and checklists. Visual tools, like these, enable students to see their plan as well as reflect on the order in which they will deal with their assignments. Many students enjoy checking off a task once it is completed and get a sense of accomplishment from this when they know they have completed their work. Some students benefit from getting quick and easy assignments out of the way early, gaining needed confidence. Others may need a different approach. Individualize the plan and make sure to put in breaks depending on your childs learning style and needs. Additionally, you may want to model your own days activities by using planners, checklists, and calendars so you son can see you doing this as well. 3. Break down the larger tasks into smaller ones. Fatigue, lack of comprehension, attentional difficulties or even anxiety can make any homework assignment seem overwhelming. Start by highlighting and reviewing the directions with your child. Discuss strategies for work completion prior to beginning the task, including previewing any difficult vocabulary from the assignment. For the more unwilling student, divide the assignment into two or three parts, allowing your child to tackle one piece at a time. Sticky notes can be used to cover parts of the assignment that may be visually overwhelming. Hints can be written on sticky notes and placed on the assignment as reminders to follow a certain strategy or step. 4. Use timers. Students often have a false sense of time when tackling homework assignments. Having your child estimate how long he thinks it will take to complete a task, and then comparing it to the actual time it takes will help him to become more self-aware and accurate when planning her own homework assignments. The goal is to have your child tackle homework independently, efficiently, and with confidence. You may need to scaffold your homework support, offering more modeling and strategies early on, before slowly removing the supports and allowing him to practice the strategies on his own, you can help guide your child toward independence.

Childrens Book With Sanibel Connection WinsTreasure in Sugars Book Barn, written by Sanibel visitor and former Southwest Floridian Linda Salisbury, recently earned a gold medal in the Presidents Book Awards sponsored by the Florida Publishers Association. The book, the eighth in the Bailey Fish Adventure series for ages 8 to 12, features a mystery involving the alphabet cone shell, and other Sanibel shells figure prominently in the story. The characters are fictional, but learn something about history or fascinating nonfiction in the course of each story. Bailey, the main character, grew up in Charlotte County and frequently visited Sanibel with her mother prior to moving north to live with her grandmother, Sugar. I really appreciated the help I received in researching the nonfiction aspects of the book from the Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum, Salisbury said. Children all over the country are fascinated by Sanibel shells that are mentioned in the book and I share in classroom presentations. She added that after the book was published, Harlan Whittkopf, noted sheller and author, sent her copies of his alphabet cone brochure for children that she has distributed during classroom presentations all around the country, and he also sent her an alphabet cone with her initials on it. It is something that I shall always treasure, she said. Among its other national awards, Treasure in Sugars Book Barn also received a silver medal in 2011 for Best Childrens Fiction. Book nine in the series, Earthquake Surprise, just earned a bronze medal from the Moonbeam awards. The series are available at, or through, island stores, including the Island Book Nook, the Sanibel Island Bookshop, MacIntosh Books, Nannys Childrens Shoppe and Suncatchers Dream.

Here are some tips on arranging your artwork with an aesthetic eye. Hang pictures at eye level In a living room, pictures should be hung so that people sitting in the room may view them while seated. A large picture behind the sofa may end up being as little as four inches from the top of the sofa and it often looks best when displayed alone because it serves as the rooms focal point. Effective picture groupings Smaller pictures become more effective when grouped together, as opposed to being scattered all over the wall. Balance and spacing are important when arranging artwork. Pieces should be of similar visual weight as nearby furniture. A rule of thumb is that the space between two pictures should be less than the width of a single picture. Hang artwork right the first time If youre apprehensive about hammering nails into your walls, cut pieces of paper into the size of your pictures. You can even mark the placement of the hooks using this technique. Then, arrange them by taping them on the wall until you are happy with the results. Once you are satisfied, mark where the hooks will go with a pencil, going right through the paper, and proceed to hang your artwork. The type of artwork you use will depend on your personal preferences and your budget. It can be simple prints, needlework, limited edition prints or original art. Of course, the more valuable the piece, the more important its place should be. Cindy Malszycki is an interior designer on Sanibel/Captiva Islands. She can be reached at cindy@decden. net. Barrier Island Title Services, Inc. (239) 472-3688Youll Appreciate the Difference What Is A Float Switch?by Bryan HayesIf youve never heard of or seen one of these before, it doesnt mean that your air conditioning system doesnt have one. However, its good to take a look at your condensation overflow pan where this device is normally attached. A float switch is one of those additions to your air conditioning systems that helps protect your home in case of a clogged drain line. If you recall an earlier article about ponds in your living room, this device helps you avoid them. Since air handlers and overflow pans are usually but not always installed in the attic, if the drain pan overflows, you can find yourself facing some serious damage. How does the float switch work? When the main drain line leading from your air handler gets obstructed (usually by dirt and dust that builds up), the backed up moisture drains into the pan. The float switch has a floating lever that will trip when the pan is about to overflow, effectively shutting off the air conditioner. I know that its hard to believe that an air conditioner can really cause a significant amount of water damage, but believe me when I say that it can. The worst damage usually occurs when people are not home and dont notice that something is wrong, allowing the air conditioner plenty of time to pump several gallons of water into their home. While drain obstructions can be prevented by regular maintenance, a float switch protects you from incurring most water-related damage. They are very inexpensive to install, and its worth taking a look into it to see if you and your home are protected. 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. PAWS continues to need donations to help pay expenses for the mother cat and her six kittens that were found several weeks ago on Sanibel. We had all seven kittens combo tested, spayed, neutered, all shots, wormed, treated for fleas and totally checked out medically. All of the kittens have found wonderful forever homes. Mama kitty, however, still needs a home. She is very sweet and loving and probably only 1 to 2 years old at most. She is very neat and takes good care of herself. She would make a wonderful kitty for someone that prefers one thats quite young, but not still in the kitten stage. If you can help, call PAWS volunteer Pam at 472-4823. Help us find mama kitty a forever home, too. Donations made payable to PAWS can be mailed to P.O. Box 855, Sanibel, FL 33957.

He later advised, Your options are to approve, deny or approve with such conditions you deem necessary. Commissioner Tom Krekel wanted to hold up the c.o. until church officials and residents of Island Woods could work on a compromise on the noise issue, saying, we do have some duty to protect the residents. But in the end, the commission voted 6-1 with Krekel opposed, to approve the plan revision and to have both sides work with Planning Director Jim Jordan on a mitigation plan. It was stated that once the c.o. is issued there would be little impetus for church leaders to work on solutions, but Commissioner Chuck Ketteman said, Part of the churchs self-interest cannot be to have its closest neighbors talking about it. And Commissioner Holly Smith said the church might not be the sole cause of the noise issue. Chairman Mike Valiquette wondered why Pavelka, with his years of development experience, could make an error in the number of air conditioners. Pavelka called it pure oversight and said the change was on one set of drawings but not on the one submitted for approval. Jordan said the extra units do not exceed coverage levels. Commissioner Phillip Marks said he had extensive experience with sound measuring during his military service. Fifty (decibels) is considered a nice quiet city, he said. City code enforcement readings came in at 56 to 59 and the church experts reported 48 to 49, both below the maximum allowed under city codes. After more than two and a half hours of discussion, Valiquette reminded Pavelka of everything he has heard today and to work this out on a friendly basis. He added, You have got your approval to move forward. I would recommend heeding this commission. Shell Point Hosts Fall Open HouseShell Point Retirement Community will host its annual Fall Open House on Thursday, October 25 from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.

48 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 12, 2012 Chamber Ambassadors Meet To Discuss Upcoming SeasonThe Sanibel-Captiva Chamber of Commerce hosted its ambassadors meeting at the Holiday Inn on Friday, October 5. The ambassadors, who are chosen from the 600-plus chamber membership, work as a welcome team for the new chamber of commerce members. Each ambassador is assigned a new member and their role is to welcome that member to the chamber, explain how the chamber works and invite them to the monthly business lunch and after hours networking event. Ambassadors give new members a chamber welcome pack, which contains a contact list of all members, the latest chamber magazine, the upcoming events calendar and a chamber wall plaque. Chamber marketing director Bridgit Stone-Budd hosts the meetings, introduces new members and the nature of their business. Ambassadors also tell new members about the marketing opportunities available, said Stone-Budd, particularly opportunities on our popular chamber website, which gets more than 1.5 million unique visitors per year, and chamber marketing initiatives such as visitor center advertising and our Hot Deals online coupon listings. The chamber has welcomed over 50 new members already this year. This months new members include Artichoke and Company, Island BBQ, Jungle House Publications, and J. McLaughlin. With the help of our ambassador team, we have seen a huge increase in our chamber member retention rate. They work very hard to keep all new members in the loop, and we find that it helps new members get the best out of their new partnership with the chamber, Stone-Budd said. The chamber ambassadors are Steve Hatfield, Island Inn; Barbara Harrington, The Royal Shell Companies; Blanaid Colley, Hillgate Communications; Mark Blust, Mazaluna The Italian Kitchen; Denice Beggs, Beggs Realtors; Christin Collins, Lee Memorial Health System Foundation; Chris Heidrick, Heidrick & Company Insurance; Richard Johnson, Baileys General Store; Sheryl Tatum, The Sanctuary Golf Club; Chris Davison, Island Inn; Regina Troops, Phoenix File & Pagidipati; Sis Berube, The News Press; and Scot Herzoff, Congress Jewelers.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 12, 201250 Around The Islands With AnneJerrys Boosts Its Organic Produce Section; Il Cielo Prepares To Re-Open Later This Fallby Anne MitchellCatering to an increased demand for organic produce, Jerrys Foods has recently expanded its fruits and vegetables department. Produce manager Steve Radakovic said the organic selection has gone from a small presence to an eight-foot display cabinet. This week, it contained tomatoes, berries, tofu, apples, onions and several varieties of potato, including Russian banana potatoes and French fingerlings. There was also Coco Libre organic coconut water, which has become very popular of late. Radakovic said he wants to hear from customers if there are any particular products they want to see in the department. We want to know what people want, so tell us, he said. The rest of the produce department has a new look too, with new inserts that better display the items and provide more space for increased variety. The prices are easier to read and its easy to see where (the produce) came from, he said. I checked out the various displays and noticed a nice selection of fresh herbs, tomatillos, four colors of large peppers, fresh salsas, whole coconuts, papayas and some of the biggest grapes I have ever seen, red and green seedless varieties. Jerrys Foods is at 1700 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel, phone 472-9300. Every week there are more and signs that the snowbirds are returning to their winter roosts on the islands and that businesses are gearing up to welcome them back, with spruced up interiors, refreshed landscaping and, in some cases, opening their doors after a slow-season break. Il Cielo Italian restaurant will reopen later this fall with a new menu and is currently hiring dynamic servers and bartenders, according to John Boler, principal investor in the restaurant. Il Cielo will serve dinner seven nights a week, and the re-opening is planned for late November or early December. Patrons will see a new casual, fine dining eclectic menu, Boler noted, along with fine wine offerings. Melinda Isley, a spokeswoman for the owners, said the new menu will be not exclusively Italian as it was before, and there will be a more casual menu in the bar/ lounge. She added that interior renovations will be made prior to opening. Job applicants may apply at Il Cielo, 1244 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.

51 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 12, 2012 A clients son recently called me. I could tell in his voice that he was frustrated. The document that you drafted isnt working. I went to the bank to put my name on mothers account so I could write her checks and pay her bills and they said that the document you drafted was faulty and they cant do it. Which document are you referring to? I asked, perplexed at the situation. Her Pre-Need Guardian, clients son replied. Thats the wrong document, I explained. The document that you need to take to the bank to put your name on the account is titled Durable Power of Attorney. I realized then that many people dont understand the difference between a guardianship situation and one where a durable power of attorney can be used. The Pre-Need Guardian document names someone that you would want to be appointed in the event that you were declared incompetent in a guardianship proceeding. A guardianship proceeding is a court process where someone petitions the court to declare you legally incompetent. Courts take these proceedings very seriously since the case can result in your losing rights to sign your name and transact business, vote, get married or perform any task for yourself. Instead, a guardian is appointed to act on your behalf. The guardianship proceeding is deemed adversarial in nature. The person whose competency is being questioned must have an attorney independently representing his or her interests. Reaching the decision to go to court to declare a loved one incompetent can be gutwrenching since the process is public. Mental health experts examine the person and testify before a judge whether the petition to declare incompetency should be granted. Once declared incompetent, the judge then appoints a guardian over the person (now called the ward) and/or his or her property (assets). This is where the Pre-Need Guardian document may be helpful in that it declares who the ward would want to serve in that capacity. The court will give much consideration to the wishes of the ward as the Pre-Need Guardian document would normally have been signed at a time before he or she became incompetent. Once the guardianship is established, the guardian has a legal duty to provide an annual accounting to the court of how the wards assets and income were invested and spent. A guardianship process is often time consuming and expensive. The Durable Power of Attorney document, in contrast, does not require any court process. Here, the person granting the powers of attorney appoints an Attorney-in-Fact to act for them in all sorts of situations. Attorney-in-Fact does not usually mean your attorney-atlaw, by the way. Usually, the attorney-infact appointed in the document is a relative or trusted friend. The attorney-in-fact can bring the Durable Power of Attorney document to the bank or brokerage firm to place his or her name on the accounts in order to sign checks and to pay bills or manage investments. The attorney-in-fact is not an owner of the account, however. Instead, the attorney-in-fact is a fiduciary meaning that he or she is charged with the responsibility of acting on behalf of the person who granted them the power. The attorney-in-fact must act prudently and in the best interests of the grantor. So if you have a Durable Power of Attorney, when would it ever be necessary to go through a guardianship process? In rare circumstances it is necessary to go through a guardianship even when there are Durable Powers of Attorney available. Consider the situation when a person has Alzheimers and they might get engaged to be married to a gold digger who is only interested in taking advantage of someone who may be mentally incapacitated. Once married without a prenuptial agreement, the new spouse has several legal rights in the financial interests of the mentally incapacitated spouse, both in the event of divorce or death. Here, the family may act to protect their loved one by having him or her declared legally incompetent. Once so declared, their loved one cant legally sign a marriage license, gift money from bank or brokerage accounts or deed properties to their new spouse. Ive seen instances where a vulnerable person was coerced into transferring all sorts of assets to their new spouse even though their son or daughter was acting as the attorney-infact under a Durable Power of Attorney document. Just because a person has been declared to have dementia or Alzheimers doesnt necessarily void any legal contract (including marriage) that they subsequently enter into. So there might be instances where a loved one turns to you for assistance under a Durable Power of Attorney, but may continue to transact separate business on their own. When there are such dangers, it might make sense to consider having your loved one legally adjudicated incompetent to protect them from themselves. Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at www.sbshlaw.com.

Small wedding gifts should be brought to benefit CROW. Stop by for their wish list. March 15: Swamp House Party The March party theme is Swamp Rock as The Community House will jam to the music of the popular Yard Dogs band. The Yard Dogs have a strong local following devoted to their eclectic mix of bluegrass, cajun, zydeco and southern rock, and this is a rare opportunity to catch them on Sanibel. Partiers can put on their country duds, let down their hair, unleash their inner cracker and enjoy some authentic back-country music. In addition to the music and dancing, there will be fun and games, a corn hole tournament, and more. The JN Ding Darling National Widlife Refuge is the featured nonprofit. April 13: House of Soul and R&B The last party of the season will celebrate American music of the 1950s and 1960s as we present the fabulous Uptown Express show band. This 10-piece ensemble performs a blend of favorite oldies from the soul, R&B, blues and doo-wop eras, with knockout vocal harmonies. Its the music you danced to back in the day. Partiers are welcome to dress in their favorite vintage finery to get in the mood. SCCF is the nonprofit who will also benefit from this event. Food at the house parties will be snacks, served tapas style to allow partiers to mingle, move around and focus on the entertainment. Alcoholic beverages will be available by donation. Admission is only $20 per person for individual events, or $100 for the entire series (series buyers will receive five free drink tickets). The Community House volunteer Nicole Decker, who has coordinated plans for the new House Parties, said her goal in putting together the series has been to get creative and innovative. We felt it was time to do something fresh that would crank up the excitement level a bit, she said. Fortunately, there are some great musical and entertainment resources here in Southwest Florida weve been able to tap for these events. As a former champion of Dancing With The Island Stars, Decker is a good judge of entertainment pizzazz. The new House Party Series is also an effort by the Sanibel Community Association (SCA), which operates The Community House, to provide activities of interest to the broad community. Since The Community House opened in 1927, its mission has been to enrich the community through educational, cultural and social gatherings, said SCA president Marge Meek. We think this new House Party Series is true to that and will have appeal to a broad range of ages, interests and music tastes. Those interested in attending the House Parties should contact The Community House at 472-2155 to make their prepaid reservation. The idea of these events was to partner and showcase other non profits in our community and work within our belief that community helps community, said SCA executive director Teresa RiskaHall. With our most popular events, space is sometimes limited, so its a good idea to call in advance to assure your space, particularly if you are coming with a group of friends. We expect these new themed parties to attract folks who like to get together with their friends, experience something different and benefit two non-profits, too. They are parties with a purpose! We especially would like to thank Joe Meek and Marge Meek, Rosier Insurance and Salli and Billy Kirkland, Billys Rentals and Billys Bike Shop for being our first two House Party Series sponsors, added Hall. We really would like one more Series Sponsor, and each party needs to have individual sponsors.

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, My husband has been an active alcoholic for years. The children and I have suffered dreadfully through job losses, car accidents, loss of friends and a tension filled home. I attended therapy groups and so did the children. Finally, my husband could not deny his condition any longer; he went to detox and also went to a self-help therapy group. He is now much better, but we are all worn out from all of his abuse and our deprivation. I have a stress-related illness and the children do not have the confidence and self esteem they should have because of his abuse. Suddenly, now that he is so much better and on his way to recovery, he has told me he wants out of this dysfunctional family. He is filing for divorce and plans to marry a woman he has met at his therapy group, start a new life on the other side of the country, and for me not to count on getting any support for myself or the family. After all the sacrifices we have made for him, it is very hard for us not to be very angry. What would you suggest we do? Janet Dear Janet, I have several suggestions for you. Inquire around and go to the best attorney in your area who is familiar with the problems related to alcoholism. Few marriages can survive the ravages of active alcoholism. Many people die from the effects of alcoholism and they have never had a single drink. Families can be destroyed and the emotional effects can go from generation to generation unless therapy is introduced to help relieve future problems. Alcoholics seem to be a very self centered group and they only think of their own needs with no consideration for the needs of others (their wives, their husbands, their children, their friends and co-workers). If you can get some private therapy it can be helpful, but continue to go to Alanon (a therapy group for those closely involved with alcoholics) and have your children to continue to go to Alateen, which is a special group for children of alcoholics. Good luck. Lizzie Dear Janet, Get yourself the best attorney in town. It is just so much garbage that your soonto-be former husband thinks he can skip town with another woman and live happily ever after without upholding his current responsibilities. To me, his boasting of not to count on getting any support are the words of a dry drunk. A dry drunk is similar to an active drunk. And drunks do not make for good family members. Get a good attorney, develop a good support system and move on with your life. You never know what health and happiness is out there for you and your family.

Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: What all occurs physically when someone experiences stress? A: The first major researcher on stress, Hans Selye, was able to trace what happens in the human body when stress is encountered, whether real or imagined threats of danger. The cerebral cortex (the thinking part of the brain) sends an alarm to the hypothalamus (the main switch for the stress response in the midbrain). The hypothalamus then stimulates the sympathetic nervous system to make a series of changes in your body. Your heart rate, breathing rate, muscle tension, metabolism and blood pressure all increase. Your hands and feet get cold as blood is directed away from your extremities and your digestive system into larger muscles that can assist in fighting or fleeing. You will experience a locking up in the diaphragm and the stomach gets butterflies. Your pupils dilate and your hearing becomes more acute. Your adrenal glands begin secreting corticoids (adrenaline, epinephrine and norepinephrine) which inhibit digestion, reproduction growth and tissue repair and the responses of your immune and inflammatory systems. These responses can have long-term negative effects if not dealt with because these are important functions that keep your body healthy. For those who experience much physiological stress, it is important to see your medical doctor, have a stress test, then get on a stress reduction program to reduce the risks of physiological distress. Edison State To Host Open House On October 15Edison State College is hosting a college-wide Open House from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Monday, October 15.

Human Trafficking Awareness Partnerships Receives Community Foundation GrantsThe Southwest Florida Community Foundation awarded Human Trafficking Awareness Partnerships (HTAP) a Community Impact Grant on September 19. This grant will fund the creation of a new human trafficking program designed as a collaborative effort among HTAP, ACT and Catholic Charities. The Point of Contact/Point of Rescue program will train business owners and employees to recognize possible victims of human trafficking who may come into their restaurants, gas stations, malls, fast food chains, etc. The program will teach employees how to seek appropriate help for the possible victims. The funding provided by the Southwest Florida Community Foundation will be used to develop training and rescue protocol and to provide immediate victim care at the point of rescue by law enforcement and human service personnel. A unique and identifiable logo will be displayed at the establishments which have been properly trained under the Point of Contact/Point of Rescue protocol. This logo will indicate that the establishment is a point of contact between victims and the network of services which have been set up for victims. The goal is to increase the number of identified and rescued victims of human trafficking in Southwest Florida and provide these individuals the care and services they desperately need. The Southwest Florida Community Foundation also provided funding earlier in the year to equip HTAPs new office in Fort Myers, which was opened thanks to a donated lease by the Harper McNew Development Corporation. HTAP, which was founded on Sanibel in 2006 by former Sanibel mayor Nola Theiss, has created human trafficking awareness and provided education and training to over 19,000 people around the United States. Many of the programs developed by HTAP for use in Lee County have been adapted and adopted by community coalitions around the country and overseas.

55 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 12, 2012Dr. DaveBuzzard-Beaterby Dr. Dave HepburnYou cant tickle yourself. We doctors of the medical sort learned that in medical sort school, when we were challenged to try and tickle ourselves. Couldnt do it, so we made the best of it and just started tickling each other. Try it (on yourself). You will not succeed in making yourself laugh, unless you happen to glance in a mirror while inhaling copious amounts of nitrous oxide. That often works, as we doctors of the medical sort happen to know. In a similar vein, even though you breathe your own breath, it may not have the same effect on you that it does on others. You may not wilt, wither and whimper while others downwind of your halitosis hurricane react by turning away or start tickling themselves. Folks, sometimes your breath could knock a buzzard off a honeywagon. We medical sorts know. We have to get up close and intimate with our patients to peer in your peepers or glance up your nostrils and when bad breath is involved, this is an unpleasant experience... or so my patients tell me. Halitosis, a word actually coined by Listerine Inc. in the 1920s. Hey boys, lets develop a disease, give it a little osis at the end and then cure it. Well make a mint, so to speak! Great idea Hal, what should we call it? I used to love shag as a kid. Long before Austin Powers, shag carpets were groovy and were of colours that I believe have now been banned in North America. My mother hated these carpets, knowing that they housed the likes of large dirt particles, a grow-op or possibly Jimmy Hoffa. Something would drop into the shag, never to be seen again. Often it would be hidden by something else that dropped into the shag on top of it, never to be seen again. What causes halitosis? Your filthy mouth specifically, your dirty tongue. More specifically, the shaggy part of your tongue at the back. The front of your tongue is relatively smooth, smoother if youve just burnt it on your wifes new French onion soup o death recipe. It gets a little less rough in the middle, but the back of the tongue is a virtual forest of papillae, hair-like projections that grow off our tongue and whose sole purpose is to remove unwanted buzzards from nearby honeywagons. Like a shag carpet, the back of our tongue can hide many of the 600 different types of bacteria our mouth houses, including the 20 or so nasty anaerobes, whose sulfur emissions are in fact responsible for halitosis. The anaerobes sink deep into the shag and then get protected there by a coating of mucous, more bacteria and that scalding cheese from the French onion soup o death. To make matters worse, the long papillae in the back of the tongue fold over, like a bad combover, and further protect these nasty anaerobes. Being anaerobes, oxygen kills them, but in the back of the tongue, protected by a lovely layer of mucous and stuff, the anaerobes whoop it up, have a party and release sulphur, which you in turn pass on to the doctors sensitive nostril as he peers into your eye trying to save your life or whatever. Three steps to be rid of halitosis: First, give your tongue a haircut. Really. A tongue scraper or even an inverted spoon scraped along the back of the tongue will help unfold and trim those long papillae. Then, open up the hairs and remove the upper layer of mucous and stuff with a tongue brush, not a toothbrush (which is not fine enough). Finally, kill the bacteria and/or neutralize the sulphur compounds by means of something like half-strength hydrogen peroxide (which does both) or even Listerine, a good probiotic gum, chlorine dioxide (which sounds evil, but is very effective if you can get it) or even added oxygen in the form of a spray. To anaerobes, oxygen is a killer, much like to a doctor, your breath can be. So if you normally have buzzard-beater breath, then try and fix it before you breathe on your doctor next time. Hell be tickled you did. Like the column? Youll LOVE the book the Doctor is In(sane), available at Sanibel Island Bookshop. Contact Dr. Dave or read more at www.wisequacks. org.

Ive always heard that vitamin D is better. Do you think thats a good idea? PK, Rockwall, Texas Yes, just keep in mind that vitamin A is not the be-all and end-all for immunity. You need adequate supplies of all vitamins and minerals to keep your immune system in tip-top shape which will prepare you for the upcoming cold and flu season. Vitamin A helps maintain the integrity of your skin and mucous membranes, both of which serve as first line protective barriers against the invasion of bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. When you have a runny nose, you assume its the vengeance of your cold. Yeah, I know its unpleasant, but making mucous is a natural part of fighting infections. Mucous membranes line your nose, throat, intestines and vagina. When those body parts lack a thick, slimy layer of mucous protection, youre a sitting duck for infections. There are numerous studies that show As profound effect on immunity, particularly Rheumatoid arthritis. In the July 2012 issue of the Journal of Immunology, researchers found that vitamin A could suppress formation of a pain-causing compound (Interleukin-17) and simultaneously reduce antibodies that attack your joints and collagen. Adequate supplies of vitamin A also supports healthy DNA, so in this regard, it may help reduce ones risk for free radical damage, which is associated with a higher risk of cancer. There are studies supporting As anti-cancer benefits. Vitamin A supports eyesight, especially your nighttime vision. A is fabulous for skin, and can help clear up acne. The drug Retin-A is based upon a vitamin A derivative, and dermatologists frequently prescribe it for blackheads, whiteheads and cystic acne. Vitamin A boosts collagen formation; collagen keeps your skin firm and springy, so you might say this nutrient erases wrinkles. The Daily Reference Intake for vitamin A is 5,000 IUs daily, but you may need more, like 15,000 to 25,000 IUs, if you take a drug mugger, for example, a fat-blocking supplement or drug, acidreducing medications or mineral oil. You could eat your way to sufficient levels of vitamin A if you consume a lot of meat, cheese and milk. Plant foods contain beta-carotene, and if youre in good health, your body will convert this to vitamin A without ever putting you at risk for toxicity. You get beta-carotene (and other healthy carotenoids) from carrots, red peppers, spinach, tomatoes and pumpkins. Its a good idea to educate yourself about what vitamins and minerals can do for your body, and how to make sure you get enough of each nutrient to support healing and hopefully protect against disease. One of the best sources I keep in my library is the book NutriCures by Alice Feinstein, available through most major bookstores and online.

Im a handsome boy with beautiful blue eyes who loves to give kisses. I already know how to walk on a leash and some other commands like sit, plus I can learn lots more since Im a good listener and very attentive. I would love to be a lap dog... even though Im a little big! My adoption fee is $12.50 during Animal Services Dogtober Adoption Special (regularly $25). Hello, our names are Ernie and Hemi. We are both 3 month old male flame point Siamese mixes. Im Ernie and the first thing you should know about us is that we are adorable and inquisitive. Weve been in a foster home since we were just 3 weeks old and would love to be adopted together. Although Ernest Hemingway is our namesake, only Hemi is an actual Hemingway cat, meaning that he has six toes on his paws. Hemi also has a bobbed tail. Our adoption fee is $37.50 during Animal Services Dogtober Adoption Special (regularly $75). Remember, we are two-for-one, so you can adopt us both for $37.50. 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.
