The official crowning ceremony will take place at Baileyfest. I had to keep pinching myself because I couldnt believe it was happening, an excited Sbarra-Michelland said on October 10, just minutes after principal Barbara Von Harten surprised Amy Holiks fifth grade class with the annual announcement. Both Sbarra-Michelland and Baughs essays, written on the subject What Sanibel Means To Me, were selected by a Baileyfest committee as the best among a strong field of well-written testimonials, earning them their royal titles. Yeah, its pretty cool to be the king, added Baugh. Baileyfest, the annual gathering of islanders and visitors celebrating the community spirit of the islands, will be held this Sunday, October 21 from 1 to 4 p.m. at Baileys Shopping Center, on the corner of Periwinkle Way and Tarpon Bay Road. It will be an afternoon filled with food, refreshments and crowd-pleasing entertainment. According to event organizers, Baileyfest will begin with the playing of The Star Spangled Banner at 1 p.m., followed by an introduction by Sanibel Mayor Kevin Ruane, members of the Sanibel City Council, City Manager Judie Zimomra and Richard Johnson of Baileys General Store. From 1:10 to 1:30 p.m., entertainment will be provided by Kellyn Celtic Arts Irish Dance Academy, followed by BIG ARTS Community Chorus performing from 1:30 to 2 p.m.continued on page 42 Pictured with king Riley Baugh and queen Isabella Sbarra-Michelland are school principal Barbara Von Harten and fifth grade teacher Amy Holik photos by Jeff Lysiak Last Call For Entries: Live Mollusk Photography Competition The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum has announced the final call for submissions to the museums 3nd annual Live Mollusk Photography Competition.

But this year, we have some serious business to attend to as well. The START (Solutions To Avoid Red Tide) board of directors presents the 2012 FISH Basket Challenge. This challenge is the result of STARTs decision to create a means of raising funds in a way that will also benefit deserving people in our community. This year, START will lend a helping hand by advancing the collection of much needed pantry staples to be distributed by FISH of Sanibel. Twenty old-fashioned bushel baskets will be sold to local merchants, who will decorate and fill the baskets with pantry items, toiletries and gift certificates for food items, then put them on display until the evening of the event. During Cracker Fest, attendees will vote for their favorite basket with raffle tickets. The business with the basket receiving the most votes will be honored with a boat excursion (provided by members of STARTs board of directors) and a great lunch. All raffle tickets entered in the basket challenge will also be placed in multiple raffles for terrific prizes to be announced during the evening. Proceeds from the votes and basket sales will benefit STARTs continued research and outreach programs aimed at improving water quality and marine habitat conservation while the baskets will provide much-needed assistance to members of our community.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 19, 20126 Veterans Day 2012 Will Be Bigger And Better Than Eversubmitted by Ted TysonThe Sanibel-Captiva Veterans Day ceremony will be held Monday, November 12 from 10:30 a.m. to noon at Sanibel City Hall. This year marks the 94th observation of Veterans Day, the 65th year of the establishment of the United States Air Force, and the 30th anniversary of the dedication of the breathtaking Vietnam Wall in the Washington, DC. This years Vererans Day ceremony will feature several special speakers and the return of the traditional student essays on What Veterans Day Means To Me And My Family by two of Sanibels youngsters. Following the ceremony at city hall, there will be a military display and veterans outreach event, for the first time, hosted by Baileys General Store, in Baileys parking lot, from noon to 4 p.m. There will be military memorabilia provided by the Military Museum of Naples, and military vehicles for great photo opportunities. The United States Coast Guard will be displaying some of its rescue and anti-drug enforcement equipment, and will offer information on how to join the coast guard and reserve units. Sadly, due to the fact that the department of defense budget is scheduled to be cut by some $500 billion, the regular and reserve units of the seven uniformed services have had to decline participation in the Sanibel event this year. The Lee County School District does not provide time off from school on the national Veterans Day holiday, so parents will have to authorize their participation and drive them to events. In attendance will be the following veterans support groups: (VSG) Vietnam Veterans of America, The Department of Veterans Affairs, The Disabled American Veterans, and others like The Missing-inAmerica-Project. Veterans will be able to get the latest information regarding their right to benefits and learn how they can receive the support they have earned through their military service. All are welcome to attend. Bring your cameras and have a great day. God bless our veterans and God bless America.

7 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 19, 2012 U.S. military memorabilia A model of the USS Arkansas Poster of the B-17 Flying Fortress Battle of Britain poster Military memorabilia Military uniform display Island Zontians Are Runners-Up For International Governors Cupsubmitted by Dalia JakubauskasThe Zonta Club of Sanibel/Captiva was named runner-up for Zonta Internationals District 11 Governors Cup award on October 6 at the district conference held in Montgomery, Alabama. The award is given to clubs that adhere to the ideals of Zonta International in recognition of service and advocacy on behalf of not-for-profit groups that help improve the lives of women locally and around the world. Kristin Ritts, president-elect for The Zonta Club of Sanibel/Captiva, accepted the award on behalf of the club, which competed against 41 other clubs for the recognition. The club came in second to The Zonta Club of Melbourne. District 11 is composed of clubs from the Southeast states, Bahamas, Puerto Rico and The British Virgin Islands as well as Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. Four other island Zontians, including Linda Robison, Zonta Area 6 vice-director, Nola Theiss, Dalia Jakubauskas, and District 11 Lt. Governor Karen Pati, were in attendance when Ritts accepted the award. While this is the second time in the past seven years that the Zonta Club of Sanibel/Captiva has been runner-up, the club has won five Governors Cups during this same time period. This competitive award reflects tremendous heart and good work by the women of Sanibels Zonta Club, said Ritts. Our thanks go out, as well, to our island businesses and Peek-at-the-Unique home owners and annual guests, for without their generous contributions and support, the financial grants we make locally in the Lee County community and internationally through the Zonta Foundation would not be possible. It was especially meaningful to have three past Sanibel club presidents with us in Montgomery, Karen Pati, Nola Theiss, and Linda Robison, and knowing that presidents Barbara Nagle and Orlene Shimberg have been honored, too, by this recognition, she added. More than 80 representatives from clubs around the district attended the conference, which is designed to conduct the business of the district and share fellowship and ideas with Zontians from around the region. Zontians attended workshops to build ideas for service projects in their areas, such as support to battered womens shelters and anti-human trafficking efforts. The District 11 Conference was a wonderful opportunity to hear about other clubs in our seven-state district and what they are doing to advance the status of women, said Robison. Our work in District 11 in such areas as anti-human trafficking, health care, anti-violence against women, and legal issues, just to name a few, is incredible. The various clubs also collectively pledged more than $65,000, including $21,000 from the Zonta Club of Sanibel/Captiva, to the Zonta International Foundation, which supports international projects that advance the status of women around the globe. Current and recent projects include the eradication of violence against women in Guatemala, Nepal, India and Samoa; combating obstetric fistula in Liberia; and the elimination of mother-to-child transmissions of HIV in Ruwanda. Attendees also heard from several dynamic speakers including Kay Ivey, Lt. Governor of Alabama, and Julie Hedgepeth Williams, author of A Rare Titanic Family, and journalism professor at Samford University in Birmingham, who delighted the audience with tales of the Wright brothers adventures in aviation in Montgomery. Keynote speaker Dori Samadzai Bonner, author of Thank You America and survivor of the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan, brought the crowd to tears with her story of triumph over oppression and her journey to become a U.S. citizen. The Zonta Club of Sanibel/Captiva is a service organization of professional women working together to provide hands-on assistance, advocacy and funds to strengthen womens lives on the islands, in Lee County and around the world through Zonta International.

9 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 19, 2012 From page 1Ding DaysHautman bested 190 top wildlife artists to win last years duck stamp contest. He is the third artist in the 80-year history of the Federal Duck Stamp Competition to win four times. Hautman will be on hand to display and talk about his work on Saturday and sign stamps from 1 to 3 p.m. Thanks to local collector Don Wildman, visitors will be able to view the artists four winning original duck stamps art. The Florida Junior Duck Stamp contest winner (for the third consecutive year), Jefferson Jones, will join Hautman on Conservation Art Day during a presentation of Florida Junior Duck Stamp awards, along with Christine Clayton, the Federal Junior Duck Stamp winner from Ohio. Three years ago, we moved the duck stamp artist presentations from Family Fun Day so we could honor the winning artists with a day devoted especially to them. So Conservation Art Day is now the time to get your duck stamps signed, said Supervisory Refuge Ranger Toni Westland. This year, we honor the Junior Duck Stamps 20th anniversary and Jaye Boswell, who founded the program right next door at The Sanibel School. Conservation Art Day has grown into an afternoon of wildlife art that pays homage to the legacy of conservation art begun by the refuges namesake, J. N. Ding Darling, a Pulitzer Prize-winning political cartoonist and the original duck stamp artist. Geared toward families and art enthusiasts, the day will offer participants a number of free interactive nature-art activities including wildlife portraits by cartoonist Dave Horton for the first 50 arrivals; a cartooning lesson from Doug MacGregor; a photography tram workshop on Wildlife Drive, compliments of nature photographer Terry Baldwin and Tarpon Bay Explorers; drawing workshops with artists Jaye Boswell and Nancy Tome; plus birthday cake and other snacks.

Voters should mail ballots by November 3, at least three days before the November 6 general election. Ballots mailed to Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico or the U.S. Virgin Islands and vice versa should be mailed by November 1, at least five days prior to the election date. Voters need to consider the time of day when dropping off ballots in a collection box to be sure the pick-up time for the particular box has not passed the suggested mailing deadline. USPS is offering the following tips for voters using mail ballots: Visit state websites to determine election office locations and Vote-by-Mail rules. Check with the local election office for rules governing mail ballots. Place completed ballots inside their window envelopes correctly. Ensure proper postage and stamp placement on the upper right-hand corner of envelope. Military Mail Military Mail is given special attention during national elections. These ballots arrive from International Service Centers in Express Mail sacks. They will remain in the Express Mail stream until they arrive at delivery units. The federal government pays the Express Mail postage for these ballots. Americans overseas, including military personnel, should plan on mailing ballots according to the mailing schedule at the Government Service Web page at usps. com. Mailing information also is available at the local Army Post Office/Fleet Post Office (APO/FPO) and American embassy for deadlines specific to overseas locations. Mail is an increasingly important part of U.S. elections. All American voters living overseas, whether civilian or military, have the opportunity to mail their completed ballots back home free of charge using the APO/FPO or by hand-delivering their ballots to the nearest American embassy or consulate. Follow the Postal Service on www. twitter.com/USPSstamps and at www. facebook.com/USPSSTAMPS. Do You Understand The Proposed Florida Constitution Amendments?submitted by Jana V.

12 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 19, 2012 ANGELA J. LONGAAngela Angie Longa, nee Romeo, of Sanibel died on September 22, 2012 after a short illness at Hope Hospice in Fort Myers. She was an inspiration to her family and those around her as she battled an aggressive form of leukemia with her positivity, courage and laughter. Ange was born in Bayonne, New Jersey on June 7, 1931. It was there that she raised her three children until moving to Sanibel in 1989 with her beloved husband, Richie, who died suddenly last summer. Angie and Richie were known to their neighbors for their hospitality, warmth and willingness to lend a helping hand when needed. She was an employee of Shearson Loeb Rhodes in New York City and New Jersey, Cablevision on Sanibel and The Sanibel Hilton. She was a beloved member of her community, welcoming everyone she met with a warm smile as she took her daily walks. She was always willing to whip up a pot of her famous sauce and meatballs and provide a quick meal for returning seasonal neighbors and friends. Angies passion was spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren, and singing and dancing. Gifted with a beautiful voice, she enjoyed singing everything from opera to scat to Broadway classics. Angie is pre-deceased by her husband, Richard Richie Dick Longa, sister Grace Romeo Bonner, and brothers Tony, Paul and Frank Romeo. She is survived by her children, Karen and Chet Dobies of Fort Myers, Dane Longa of Sanibel, and Diane Craft of New York City. She is also survived by four grandchildren, Dane Michael Longa, Francesca, Isabella and Amelia Craft, three great grandchildren, nine nieces and nephews, and seven great grandnieces and nephews. There will be a memorial service on Sunday, November 11 at 2:30 p.m. at St. Michael & All Angels Episcopal Church, 2304 Periwinkle Way on Sanibel.

JEAN (JEANIE) WITTMANJean Wittman, 83, a long time resident of Sanibel Island and Cape Cod, Massachusetts, passed away on Sunday, October 14, 2012 and went to be with the Lord after a brief illness in Fort Myers. Jean was born on October 24, 1928 in Brewster, Massachusetts to Howard and Flora Dunnells. She was a graduate of the prestigious Wheaton College in Norton, Massachusetts. Jean married Alfred Wittman and they traveled the world extensively until Alfreds passing in 1985. After his passing, she continued her travels with dear friends and had many wonderful memories of her trips. Jeanie lived life to the fullest. She was an active member of the Sanibel Community Church. Her greatest joy in recent years was spending time with her son and daughter-in-law, Jeffrey and Debbie, who moved to Sanibel to be close to mom. She was truly the life of the party, always upbeat and smiling and will be missed by all who knew her. Jean is predeceased by her daughter, April. Jean is survived by her beloved son and daughter-in-law, Jeffrey Wittman and Debbie, her brother George, many nieces, nephews and friends and her dog, Ripley. The family will miss her wonderful nature, love of adventure and fun loving spirit. A celebration of life for Jean will be held at Sanibel Community Church, 1740 Periwinkle Way on Sanibel, on Saturday, October 27 at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the charity of your choice. JANE ELLITHORP WERNER (1914 2012)September 17, 2012 Jane E. Werner, 92, of Fort Myers passed away from complications related to hip surgery. Born October 3, 1919 in Olean, New York, Jane was the first daughter of Clara Luther and John Stafford Ellithorp, Jr. Jane never lost her affection for her home town of Canajoharie in Upstate New York. She was nicknamed Beechie, a reference to her familys leadership of Beech Nut Corp. Jane graduated from Smith College in 1941where she majored in economics and lettered in three sports. As the Greatest Generation entered WWII, Jane filled a mans role working at IBM in Washington, DC, where she began corresponding with Clem Werner, a handsome young army lieutenant from Iowa. After a year of letter writing, they met and were married six weeks later on October 9, 1943. Following the war, they raised their children, Susan, Cal and Ann in Davenport, Iowa. Jane was a superb golfer who won numerous championships, from her teens into her 70s, but who never took herself too seriously. She also loved being outdoors in her garden, biking with friends, and shelling on Sanibel. A strong believer in education, Jane worked to improve public schools. In the 1950s she proposed health education in 4th grade, a controversial topic at the time. For 30 years, she interviewed potential students for Smith College. In later years, she and Clem endowed college scholarships for five high schools in Davenport and Bettendorf, Iowa. In addition, Jane endowed scholarships at Smith College and Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel. Jane and Clem retired to Sanibel in 1984. For the next 25 years, she served as a volunteer ranger at the Ding Darling NWR. More than anything else, Jane loved spending time with family and friends. She planned many family trips from Africa to Asia and from Europe to the Caribbean. During their travels, Jane collected more than 100 dolls which she recently donated to the Sanibel Library. Jane was an extraordinarily generous woman who made major contributions to organizations helping to protect the environment, provide education, and assist those less fortunate. Jane was predeceased by her husband Clem of 60 years and her sister Barbara E. Vosburgh. She is survived by her sister Sue E. Hellebush and her children Cal (Jill) Werner, Ann Werner (Terry Dibble), Sue (Bob) Thoresen, grandchildren Kristin (John) Swartzendruber and Erik (Traci) Thoresen, and her great-grandchildren Jackson, Avery, Lilli and Clemens. She is also survived by her caregiver Sandy Sisco and many friends. A memorial service will be November 10 at 2 oclock at Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ.

Tice and Johnston have almost everything to make their journey on Saturday, October 27 a success, but do have some urgent needs and requests. Both men have garnered the support of community leaders, and have raised more than $1,500 for the ride thus far. However, they need to raise another $3,000 to pay for expenses such as bike maintenance and repairs, food, hotel stays and other essentials. Most importantly, they are looking for a volunteer with a SUV or van who can accompany them on the ride and transport necessary supplies such as clothing, water, bike parts and food essential for a safe journey. In addition, Tice and Johnston are hoping other veterans will join them on their ride across the state, which is expected to take 10 days with stops along the way to visit city and state officials. Their mission is to raise awareness and funds for veterans who suffer from PTSD and suicide among our military. Tice and Johnston hope to encourage more aid for soldiers who suffer from PTSD. Presently, there are minimal resources and volunteers available to help those suffering from this widespread illness. They plan to meet with active duty family members, veterans and the public along the way to Tallahassee. Currently, one out of eight soldiers who have served in Iraq or Afghanistan show signs of having PTSD, and every 24 hours or less a military person will take his or her own life, said Tice. It is vital for veterans in crisis who call the suicide crisis line to get the help they need and not be left on hold. Tice and Johnston would like to see some changes when military veterans call the crisis line. They would like to see boots on the ground and a response team that will meet with the distressed veteran face to face within a three-hour time frame. Its a lot easier for a veteran to talk about their problems with someone face to face, Tice added. Both veterans have received the backing of many influential leaders, including Congressional candidate Trey Radel, State Representative Matt Caldwell and Lee County Commissioner John Manning. A cameraman from Pineapple Productions has committed to riding along with them, and videotaping the entire 480-mile ride to the state capital. Tice and Johnston are hosting a raffle to raise funds for Vets Ride 4 PTSD. Every $20 donation buys three chances to win a $1,000 gift certificate to the Diamond District, or one of two onenight stays at the Sandpiper Gulf Resort in Fort Myers Beach valued at over $500. Sponsorship opportunities are available to help fund Vets Ride 4 PTSD, with remaining proceeds benefiting the American Red Cross Veterans Outreach Program and Southeastern Guide Dogs that provide service dogs for veterans with PTSD. To make a donation, visit www.VetsRide4PTSD.us and click the Donate button or visit any Fifth Third Bank and mention you would like to make a donation to the memorial account for Vets Ride 4 PTSD.

Health Screenings At Rec Center The complimentary Sanibel-Captiva Lions Club Diabetes, Glaucoma, Hearing and Blood Pressure Screenings will be performed from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday, October 22nd at the Sanibel Recreation Center. The diabetes test uses a tiny drop of blood extracted with an almost painless prick of the finger, which is then read by a blood glucose meter in 5 seconds. The glaucoma test checks peripheral vision and eye pressure, which can detect existing eye damage and/or provide predictive information. The Lion screeners have been trained and certified by a doctor and use all appropriate methods to insure antiseptic conditions and privacy during the screening. Screenings are performed on a first come, first serve basis. Finding and treating eye disease early is the best way to limit the effects of glaucoma and diabetic eye disease. If left untreated, they may cause severe vision loss or even blindness. The Sanibel Recreation Center is located at 3880 Sanibel-Captiva Road. Daily, weekly, semi-annual and annual memberships are available. For more information call the Sanibel Recreation Center at (239) 472-0345 or visit our web site at www.mysanibel.com.

18 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 19, 2012 CROW Case Of The Week: Summers Best Success Storiesby Patricia MolloyAmerican white pelican is a rare bird indeed. With a nine-foot wingspan, the American white pelican is one of the largest birds in North America. One was found in obvious distress by naturalist Vince McGrath near South Seas Island Resort on Captiva. Long-time volunteer and veterinarian Dr. David Nichols evaluated the patients condition and discovered that the pelican was suffering from toxicosis and had likely suffered respiratory irritation. After being tube fed a special diet designed to meet the metabolic needs of the critically ill seabird, along with a liver detox containing milk thistle, the patient improved. After two full weeks of treatment, the white pelican was healthy enough to be released on Sanibel. In May, CROW returned a young American alligator to its home at Florida Gulf Coast University after successfully rehabilitating the young reptile. The patient arrived at the clinic with several minor wounds and a deep gash on one of its hind legs that went down to the joint. Dr. Heather Barron, CROW clinic director, performed an arthrodesis, a surgical procedure involving fixation of a joint to promote bone fusion. It took six weeks to recover. After tagging the alligator, it was released in a marsh on the far edge of the campus, where it leisurely walked into the water. CROW patient #0994 will continue to play an import part in the FGCUs native alligator population study. In August, a three-month-old male bobcat was admitted from Lee County. After being given a sedative to make it more comfortable, the staff determined the kitten was hyperthermic with a body temperature of 103 degrees. While its ears and eyes were healthy, the young patient was found to have tape, hook and round worms, which were immediately addressed. After two weeks of critical care by the clinic staff, CROW arranged for the bobcat, patient #2382, to be transported to the Big Cat Rescue in Tampa (i.e. Kitten Kindergarten) where it will learn normal behavior from a older, more experienced bobcat. It will be then be returned to his home in Lee County. One of CROWs volunteers picked up an injured snapping turtle in North Fort Myers. It was evident by its injuries that it had been hit by a car. A pain medication was immediately administered to make the patient more comfortable while topical antibiotics and bandages were applied to its wounds. This treatment was continued during his stay at the clinic.

19 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 19, 2012 Birds Eye ViewAre We Doomed To Never Learn?by Mark Bird WestallEver since I was a young teenager, I have been trying to understand why civilized humans can be such jerks to everything else around them sometimes. I couldnt understand why a supposedly advanced class of our species always seemed to be destroying everything they came in contact with instead of living in harmony with the surrounding environment and those that shared that environment with them. My desire to find some answers to that conundrum has been a driving force behind my pursuit of understanding how the natural system works and why primitive humans seem to do a better job of living harmoniously with the natural environment than modern humans. When I first started this lifelong search for answers, I was focusing on the human aspect of the equation and began working on an Anthropology degree in college. My plan was to go and work for the Bureau of Indian Affairs, live on a reservation, marry an Indian princess and learn firsthand how the natives did it. Ahh, the naivet of youth! I am sure my professors did not mean to communicate this to me, but their lectures began to make me think that as a member of the civilized world, the best thing I could do for the Native American was to just leave him alone. My people had already messed the natives up terribly by destroying their culture and making them wards of the state. And wellintentioned do-gooders like me usually only exacerbated the problems even more because the civilized way of thinking just could not see the world as a native saw it. Thats when I added Environmental Studies to my Anthro studies and ended up coming to Sanibel after graduation. I never lost my attraction for the more primitive way of viewing the world, however, and I have since decided that I do have a lot in common with how native peoples think. I will always feel more alive when I am someplace very remote, away from civilization and I can see, feel and smell the natural world around me. I will never be very happy spending my life sitting behind a desk inside of four walls. By the time I arrived on Sanibel, civilization had already exterminated the Calusa and pushed the Seminoles onto a reservation, so all that was left was a seemingly pristine, natural world, beautiful in its splendor. But I was also attracted to Sanibel because of what it was telling the rest of the civilized world. In the 1970s, the island had been fighting a seemingly undefeatable regional government and the powerful development community that thought Sanibel should become the next Miami Beach. The people of Sanibel were adamant that that was not what they wanted; what they wanted was to be the civilized community that protected and cherished all that was natural on Sanibel. Thirty-eight years later, this island community has done a better job in coexisting with the natural environment than any other modern community on the planet. And we should be proud of what we have accomplished. But unfortunately, the outward appearance that Sanibels harmonious community presents to the rest of the world is also going to attract those who say they want to co-exist, but in reality, are just wanting to use those concepts to limit the number of humans they have to share the island with. These pseudo-environmentalists are willing to live with the natural system, but only so long as the native animals that live in the natural system stay on their reservations. Thus, I have spent the last 35 years of my life trying to help the people of Sanibel to co-exist with it natural ecosystems and the animals who live there. My frustrations have come when dealing with those pseudo-environmentalists. I sometimes call them the Environmentalists Butts, as in Im an environmentalist... but what is that animal doing in my backyard!?! Believe it or not, Ive actually mellowed some over the years. I have dropped out of many of the positions of authority I used to occupy. I dont spend as muchcontinued on page 49 Physical Therapy, Massage Therapy & Pilates
ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 19, 201220 Plant SmartEastern Gamagrassby Gerri ReavesRobust eastern gamagrass (Tripsacum dactyloides) is very easy to grow and maintain, has virtually no pests and adapts to a variety of soils. This native bunch grass will produce voluminous fountains of dark green foliage up to five feet high and several feet wide, adding height and texture to the landscape. Its a good choice for a wildlife-friendly landscape. The species is the host plant for the clouded skipper butterfly and provides cover for small animals and birds, who eat the seeds. In the wild, it grows in wet areas such as marshes, hammocks, and swamps, or near streams, ditches or lakes. Its useful in swales or areas prone to periodic freshwater flooding. The fibrous root system helps to prevent soil erosion. However, eastern gamagrass also grows well in drier upland habitats, too. Although it prefers moisture, it is droughttolerant once established. The leaf blades are long, flat and about an inch wide. Both male (pollen-producing) and female (seed-producing) parts appear on a tall spike. Both sections produce colorful tiny flowers, the female purple, and the male orange to maroon. If pollination occurs, the corn-like seeds eventually develop and fall on the ground and reseed. The seeds can also be collected and planted. Alternatively, propagate eastern gamagrass by dividing the rhizomatic root system (creeping underground stems) or clumps. The clumps can be cut back in the spring, if desired, but theres no need to mow, as with typical lawn grasses. Give it full sun to partial shade.

Matt MitchellThis week, I spotted the first big formations of white pelicans migrating south for the winter. This is a sure sign its already cold up north. Add to that the strong prevailing northeast winds bringing some of the lowest tides we have seen in a long time and cooler morning temperatures, you can really tell the change in seasons is just around the corner. Fishing this week seemed to be all about hiding from the wind and staying comfortable. Some days we did struggle for a few hours out there, but all in all, fishing was pretty good. Taking live shrimp along really made all the difference in the world during those tougher periods. Although most of the fish caught on shrimp were not huge, the action was non-stop even when you simply could not get a bite on a bait fish. Once the conditions were right with the tide and wind, the fishing was on fire with quality fish including big snook and redfish. The highlights of my week on the water included a 21-pound redfish and a 36-inch snook. As usual, most of my days were spent searching for that one hot spot that would make the trip. It seemed I would bounce spot to spot without a whole lot happening until I stumbled across that one hot spot, then it was all action. It was either boredom or wide open, without a whole lot of anything between. Plugging away at it and never giving up was the attitude that got it done most days this week. One morning charter this week, I was on a redfish bite that can only be discribed as simply silly. We caught more than a dozen upper slot-sized redfish along with six reds over 30 inches and one monster 21-pound bull redfish, all in just over an hour. That was at the first stop of the charter. The oyster bar we were fishing in Matlacha Pass was on fire with just about every cast resulting in a strike, if not a fish. The big bull redfish of the trip had a two-pound bite mark out of its back that had almost healed. It still amazes me how hardy these redfish are and what they can survive. My afternoon charter that same day was pretty slow until the end of the trip, when the snook bite went off. We had caught a few trout and really had not had much going on until the last hour of the low outgoing tide when the setup was just right. We did manage one 29-inch redfish but with time running out, were just about ready to wrap it up. After pitching some regular size baits at one of my favorite snook docks in the southern sound without success, I figured I would try one big bait before calling it quits to a tough day at the office. Pitching a big tailhooked grunt up under a dock was kind of a hail mary of go big or go home. After a few twitches it was instantly hit by a huge snook, which on its first big head shake jump threw the hook from its coffee can-sized mouth. The next three big baits thrown up under the dock produced three snook over 30 inches on back-to-back to back casts. The big snook of the trip measured 36 inches. After a pretty slow day, I cannot think of a better way to finish up a charter.Capt. Matt Mitchell has been fishing local waters since he moved to Sanibel in 1980.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 19, 201224 A Closer Look At Rip Currentssubmitted by Ken and Kate Gooderham, ASBPA Executive DirectorsIn the most recent issue of Shore & Beach, the quarterly technical journal on coastal issues published by the American Shore & Beach Preservation Association, Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman addresses the dangers and characteristic of rip currents powerful currents of water that flow offshore from many beaches under certain conditions which are responsible for more than 100 deaths annually in this country. Leatherman puts forth a description of the five main types of rip currents, using terminology that should resonate with average beachgoers while giving them a better grasp of what to look for in the offshore waters both to avoid rips and to understand better the ways by which these currents can be more safely negotiated should you get caught in one of them. The five rip current types and a brief description of their qualities are: Bar-gap: The most common and, thus, the most dangerous to the general public. As the name suggests, these form due to a break on the offshore sand bar that allows a channel of water to flow seaward. Easy to spot by the calm, dark water in the midst of breaking offshore waves, these rips can last as long as the broken bar stays in place. Cusped-shore: Common along bow-shaped coastlines where the shape of the offshore bars and the hydrology that results encourages these currents. Frequently found in the Florida Panhandle, these deceptive currents can look calmer than the surrounding waters along the shoreline. Structurally controlled: These result from either offshore rock formations (along a rocky coastline) or manmade structures that create an offshore-bound current. The permanent nature of the cause makes the effect similarly consistent, but steering clear or heeding the advice of local experts make these easy to avoid. Flash: Very temporary and very variable, these currents come during strong onshore winds and waves that can combine to create hazardous conditions. Usually weaker than other rips, but still dangerous because of their unpredictability. Mega-rip: Very powerful and very dangerous, these current come from high surf in conjunction with underwater rock formations that channelize the rebounding wave energy. Notably for their size, often extending twice the distance of the surf zone. Leathermans goal in this descriptive detail is to make rip currents more recognizable to the average beachgoer, both to make them more avoidable and to better grasp how to survive if youre caught in one by seeing their predictable nature. (Thats why surfers often use rips to take them offshore for the next incoming wave.) The key here is to stay calm and either swim across the current (usually meaning parallel to the shoreline) or to wait until the current weakens and you can escape its grasp to swim back to shore.

I was out sitting in the water and noticed a small green plastic childs shovel floating by, said Robinson. I retrieved the shovel and started digging around underwater where I was seated. I found something large and when I pulled it out from the sand, it was a big conch shell. What a surprise! After using the shovel, he returned it to the young lady that had lost it.

25 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 19, 2012Stone Crab Season OpensGet your claw crackers ready, because Floridas recreational and commercial stone crab claw harvest season officially opened on October 15 in state and federal waters. To be harvested, stone crab claws must be at least 2 3/4 inches in length when measured from the elbow to the tip of the lower immovable portion of the claw. Claws may not be taken from eggbearing female stone crabs. Recreational harvesters can use up to five stone crab traps per person. Stone crabs may not be harvested with any device that can puncture, crush or injure the crab body. Examples of devices that can cause this kind of damage include spears and hooks. Both claws of the stone crab may be taken if the claws are of legal size, but this practice leaves the crab with few alternatives to defend itself from predators. Crabs that are returned to the water with one claw intact will be able to obtain more food in a shorter amount of time and therefore regrow its other claw faster. There is a recreational daily bag limit of one gallon of claws per person or two gallons per vessel, whichever is less. The season will be open through May 15, 2013. Stone crab regulations are the same in state and federal waters. More information on harvesting stone crabs for recreation, as well as commercial stone crab regulations and licensing information, is available online at www.MyFWC.com/Fishing (click on Saltwater).

All Monday Night Films are $8 and begin at 7 p.m. in Schein Performance Hall. Viewers will enjoy the quality of a Blu-ray Disc player, high-definition projection equipment, and surround sound. Assistive listening devices are available. October and November Monday Night films: October 29 Women On The 6th Floor (2010) France; Not Rated November 5 Happy (2012) U.S.; Not Rated November 12 The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2012) U.S.; PG-13 November 19 Footnote (2011) Israel; Rated PG November 26 Surprise film, to be announced November 19 Set in Paris in the early 1960s, Women On The 6th Floor film tells the story of Jean-Louis, an uptight stockbroker leading a consistently uninteresting life. Matters suddenly change when he is led by Maria, a beautiful new maid in his luxury building, to the servants quarter, where he learns to open up to an altogether different world. Film critic Roger Ebert describes the movie as a pleasant, even-tempered romantic fantasy. This comedy was nominated for three Csars, and Carmen Maura won the Csar for Best Supporting Actress for her role. Happy seeks to answer a most basic human question: What makes us happy? This documentary by Oscar-nominated director Roko Belic travels the world to interview people on living happy lives: a 60-year-old Brazilian surfer; a German exbanker now working in one of Mother Teresas charity wards; the people of Okinawa, the world longevity capital of the world. No definitive conclusions are offered, but the film does validate most of what modern science and study have indicated: happiness increases the more one is physically active, performs actions for the benefit of others, and feels close to family and friends. The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel chronicles the misadventures of a group of British retirees who travel to India to stay at what they believe is a newly-restored resort hotel. Less luxurious that it advertises, the hotel slowly begins to grow on its visitors in unexpected ways. Featuring an all-star cast that includes Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Tom Wilkinson and Bill Bighy, Marigold Hotel is described as feel-good by Stephen Holden of The New York Times who insists, [I]ts never too late to leave your comfort zone and explore new horizons.

Judges will consider images of live mollusks eating, moving, mating, etc. The competition takes place annually and winners are announced in late November, during the week of the museums anniversary on November 18. Winning entries will be posted on the museums website and Facebook pages, and displayed in the museum auditorium. Photo entries may be submitted electronically and must be received by Thursday, November 8. Rules Only amateur photographers are eligible to enter. Photos must be from the most recent two years. Photos must be submitted electronically as an e-mail attachment to Diane Thomas (firstname.lastname@example.org.) Images should be in JPEG, TIF or BMP formats only. The native resolution should be 300 dpi, and the final image size between 4 and 7 MB. Each person may enter up to two photographs but is eligible to win only one award. The judges will receive image files without any identifier as to authorship of the images. Judging Criteria Technical excellence (sharpness, lighting, composition, exposure) Originality/Creativity Interest Adequate use of image processing software, if applicable (e.g., Photoshop) Regulations The museum will recognize one first, second and third place winner, and one honorable mention There will be a Junior-Youth division and an Adult division Photos may be used by the museum in any of its publication media (website, Facebook, Museum News) with credit given to photographers. The photography contest is an outreach initiative that provides a perfect venue for generating interest and enthusiasm in live mollusks. Since the collection of live mollusks is banned in Lee County, capturing images is a wonderful way for the public to learn more about the creatures that actually make shells, said Diane Thomas, the museums public programs specialist. Over the years, shell enthusiasts have provided the Museum with their favorite photographs. We would like to add to that collection and display winning entries on our website and in the museum. A release form (available online at www.shellmuseum.org) must be completed and emailed with each entry. Please send all inquiries and submissions to Diane Thomas (dothomas@shellmuseum. org).

This years winner is Tower of Magic and its playing through October 27. You will meet some of the strangest characters ever imagined. Anyone who wants to escape from normal day life could consider doing as this family does and move deep in the woods where people are free to act out who they want to be. Playwright Tess Light, from New Mexico, was available for a talk-back after the performance and Ill get to that in a moment. As the play opens, Felix (Miguel Cintron) is paying a surprise visit to his fiances home somewhere in the woods in the upper midwest portion of the United States. Susan, or Solstitia (Lucy Harris) doesnt want her intended husband around because her family knows nothing about him. Felix is a civil engineer and hes in for a surprise, big time, when he meets his potential inlaws. He later refers to their home as an outpatient holding pen. Jamie Carmichael plays twins Quartus and Tertius. Talk about split personalities. They are as different as night and day and I absolutely loved Carmichaels portrayal. Then we have J. Mitchell Haley as Zanzibar, an obsessive ornithologist who is hell-bent on sighting a rare avian species. Joann Haley, his real wife, plays Capella, his stage wife. Appropriately named, she sings almost all of her lines, dressed at all times in fancy evening gowns. Pax (Chris Brent) is an occasionally-mute savant who is activated, so to speak, when he sneezes. This was another one of my favorite roles. We also have Hestia (Ivy Levinson) who is Gran, a woman with culinary expertise, especially when cooking swamp rat. When you put them all together, you have a potpourri of personalities and characters that provide a ton of laughs. Im not quite sure what the message is in this play; perhaps its about finding joy in simple things. It doesnt really matter. The dialogue is snappy, the actors are all top notch, the set is incredible, and the play provides a very entertaining experience. I asked Light, who is a physicist, where she got the inspiration for the play and she said an idea popped into her head one day and then she talked about it with her husband and the characters just started to grow. Talk about creativity, this play has it in spades. Haley said she selected all the tunes for her many lines. Her husband said, There was a lot of singing around the house. But thats OK Honey, I still love you. Where the play goes from here is not known at this time. The great thing is that you can see it now at Theatre Conspiracy. Directed by Bill Taylor, Tower of Magic plays through October 27 in the Foulds Theatre, located in Alliance For the Arts, 10091 McGregor Boulevard in Fort Myers. Get your tickets by calling 936-3239.

Recently, the club invited the program director of Sanibels Friends in Service Here (FISH), Christine Swiersz, to speak to us. The mission of FISH is to lend a helping hand to those in need who live, work or visit Sanibel and Captiva, by providing free services such as transportation, food pantry, meal delivery, health equipment, and emergency financial assistance through a group of volunteers who care about enhancing the quality of life for all those who request help. This all-encompassing humanitarian organization is the umbrella resource center for a plethora of services that are provided in our community. FISH serviced 750 clients in 2011, 92 of them islanders, 8 percent island worker families, plus a small number of vacationers.

But before you do, find out why some of your colleagues might not appear to be as gung-ho about it as you are. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) All that dedicated hard work youve been putting in pays off better than you expected. So go ahead, reward yourself with something befitting a beauty-loving Bovine. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Its a good time to take on that new challenge. And if your self-confidence is sagging, instead of telling yourself why you cant do it, list all the reasons why you can. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) This is one time when you might want to put some distance between you and the job at hand. It will give you a better perspective on what youve done and still need to do. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Resist that occasional lapse into Leonine laziness that sometimes overtakes the Big Cat. Dont cut corners. Do the job right at this time, or you might have to redo it later. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) You know how you like to do things. And thats fine. But watch that you dont impose your methods on others. A current financial crunch soon eases. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Someone might try to take advantage of your generosity. But before your sensitivity toward others overwhelms your good sense, check his or her story out carefully. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your strong Scorpian sense of fairness lets you see all sides of a dispute. Continue to remain impartial as you help each person work through his or her particular grievance. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Trust your keen Sagittarian insight to help you see through an offer that might not be all it claims. A closer look could reveal disturbing elements. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) With the Goat exhibiting a more dominant aspect these days, you could find it easier to make your case in front of even the most skeptical audience. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Take things nice and easy as you continue to build up your energy reserves for a big change thats coming with the full Hunters Moon on Oct. 29. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Recent news from someone you trust could help you make an important decision. Also, be prepared to confront an upcoming change in a personal situation. BORN THIS WEEK: You can be firm in your own views, but also flexible enough to welcome the views of others. On Oct. 27, 1659, William Robinson and Marmaduke Stevenson, two Quakers who came from England in 1656 to escape religious persecution, are executed in the Massachusetts Bay Colony for their religious beliefs. The Massachusetts General Court had banned Quakers from the colony under penalty of death. On Oct. 26, 1825, the Erie Canal opens, connecting the Great Lakes with the Atlantic Ocean via the Hudson River. Teams of oxen plowed the ground, but for the most part the work was done by Irish diggers who had to rely on primitive tools. On Oct. 24, 1861, workers of the Western Union Telegraph Company link the eastern and western telegraph networks of the nation at Salt Lake City, Utah, completing a transcontinental line that for the first time allows instantaneous communication between Washington, D.C., and San Francisco. On Oct. 28, 1919, Congress passes the Volstead Act, providing for the enforcement of the 18th Amendment, which banned the manufacture, sale, or transportation of intoxicating liquors for beverage purposes. Despite a vigorous effort by law-enforcement, the Volstead Act failed to prevent the large-scale distribution of alcoholic beverages. On Oct. 25, 1929, during the Teapot Dome scandal, Albert B. Fall, secretary of the interior, is found guilty of accepting a bribe while in office. Fall was the first individual to be convicted of a crime committed while a presidential cabinet member. The Teapot Dome was a naval oil reserve in Wyoming. On Oct. 23, 1942, Michael Crichton is born in Chicago. During his final year of medical school, the 6-foot, 9-inch Crichton published The Andromeda Strain (1969) and decided to write full time instead of practicing medicine. On Oct. 22, 1975, Air Force Sgt. Leonard Matlovich, a decorated veteran of the Vietnam War, is given a general discharge by the Air Force after publicly declaring his homosexuality. His tombstone reads, A gay Vietnam Veteran. When I was in the military they gave me a medal for killing two men and a discharge for loving one. It was inventor Thomas Edison who made the following sage observation: We dont know a millionth of 1 percent about anything. Those who study such things say that chewing gum will reduce your recall ability by 10 percent. As ostrich can run just as fast as a racehorse. In 1972, an extraordinary birth occurred. On July 22 of that year, a woman in Rome gave birth a whopping 15 babies -five boys and 10 girls. The siblings were quindecaplets, though, obviously, that term doesnt see much use. You probably know that J. Edgar Hoover was the first director of the FBI, helping to found the bureau in 1935 and serving until his death in 1972. You might not realize, though, that in his career he never made an arrest or even personally conducted an investigation. Its been reported that the last words of famed composer Ludwig van Beethoven were Friends, applaud; the comedy is over. The Rubiks Cube, that ubiquitous 1980s toy, was invented by a mathematician in Hungary to help teach math to his students. The device was first marketed as a toy in Hungary -where one in five citizens owned one -then was brought to the U.S., from whence it became an international sensation. The success of his cube made Erno Rubik the first self-made millionaire in a communist country. The next time youre visiting Washington, D.C., keep in mind that in our nations capital, it is illegal to throw a bull in any way. A queen honeybee can live for up to seven years. On a per capita basis, Switzerland consumes more chocolate than any other country. No. 2 and No. 3 are Norway and Great Britain, respectively. Dont let your opinions sway your judgment. -Samuel Goldwyn THIS WEEK IN HISTORY STRANGE BUT TRUE THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
39 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 19, 2012 Authors First Romance Novel Ranked Third On The IslandsFormer Sanibel resident Kristen Hartman is the author of The Three Sunrises, currently listed at #3 on the Top Ten List of books selling on the island (courtesy of Sanibel Island Bookshop). She is a romance writer who finds her inspiration from vacations to Captiva Island and from the three years she resided on Sanibel. After moving back home to Massachusetts in 2008, it was the arrival and actuality of winter that motivated her to begin writing The Three Sunrises. It is her first self-published novel and is the beginning of a romantic series that takes place on the islands. The Three Sunrises is the story of Alison and Nicole, two best friends who cant wait to start their summer vacation on Captiva Island before jumping into the next phases of their lives. But these smart and sexy twentysomethings are about to experience a whole lot more than lazy days spent on the beach. And what happens next could lead to endless pleasure or pain. Alison isnt even on vacation a whole day before she finds herself in a steamy, fast moving relationship with her dream man: a gorgeous, undercover FBI agent named Rafe McDonough. And Nicole never expects her grandmother to play matchmaker by sending Alis hunky older brother to the island as a surprise. Now, both women must navigate tricky emotional waters as they confront a world that isnt always as it seems. For Alison, a burgeoning affair is about to collide with the facts of her lovers dangerous investigation into a local real estate magnate. His run of the mill inquest could balloon larger than anyone expects when a suspected tax-cheating scheme warps into a plot involving drugs and illegal immigrants. Meanwhile, Nicoles long since buried feelings for Alisons brother are bubbling to the surface. Bolstered by the fact that Matt no longer sees her as young girl, Nicki plans to make sure he sees the woman she has become. Fast-paced and addictive, this savvy romance-thriller set off Floridas Gulf coast will have you booking passage to a remarkable land filled with lust, intrigue and danger. Hartman lives with her husband and two children in Massachusetts and visits her family and friends on Sanibel and Captiva whenever she can. Tween Waters Inn on Captiva is where she finished The Three Sunrises and is her favorite place to stay. Look for the second novel in her island series, Signs of Fate, soon to be published. To read more about this book and the author, go to www.kristenhartmanbooks. com.

40 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 19, 2012 Around The Islands With AnneHalloween Is For Pets As Well As Peopleby Anne MitchellHalloween will be fast upon us with ghouls and goblins and all manner of creatures gathering for another annual fright-fest. Island Paws pet store is having its Howl-O-Ween Party on Friday, October 26 from 5 to 7 p.m. on the patio at the nearby Over Easy Caf in the Olde Sanibel Shoppes. Puptails and yappetizers will be served. Admission is a $10 donation to Lee County Domestic Animal Services. The costume contest entry is $10 and judging is at 6:30 p.m. Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third places. I checked out Island Paws this week to see what doggie delights are in store. Naturally, there were platters of pet-friendly Halloween decorated cookies and a selection of spooky bandanas in all sizes. I didnt find any costumes, but it seems that many pet owners like to use their own imagination and creativity, and Im sure that will be a plus for the pets entering the costume contest. Do check out the new T-shirts, including The Tick Magnet a dog driving a snazzy red sports car. I laughed out loud at the hilarious High Cotton Gifts collection of doggie coasters ($2.95) and door mats ($19.95). My favorites are the ones that say, Its all fun and games until somebody ends up in a cone, illustrated with an unfortunate canine cone wearer. If youre in need of a foldup umbrella that stands out from the crowd, there are a couple of designs featuring dogs for just $14.95. Island Paws and Over Easy Caf are in the Olde Sanibel Shoppes, 630 Tarpon Bay Road, phone 395-1464. Another Halloween party, this time for humans, is the Fall Family Carnival every year at The Community House. It began in 2001 as a way for the community children to have a safe way to celebrate Halloween indoors. The event is designed for the whole family, with games, candy, prizes and a hay ride. It will take place October 31 from 5 to 7 p.m. It will include a dining area serving meals at family-friendly prices and a hay ride courtesy of Billys Bikes. Multiple costume prizes will be awarded. Admission price is a bag of Halloween candy per family. For more information, call 472-2155. Pinocchios Original Italian Ice Creams new T-shirts are now available.

I have been on many river cruises and for me its the best way to travel and see the world up close. In fact, I will be cruising on the Danube River later this month. Do attend if you can. Refreshments will be served. Call Nashed at 239-288-7554 or email Deb@Debonair-Travel.com to RSVP.

The winning essays: What Sanibel Means To Me by Riley Baugh Normally, if you are one of those people that dont like cold weather and you live in a cold weathered state, you would visit Sanibel for a few weeks or the fall and winter. If you love Sanibel as an amazing vacationing place, imagine what it is like to live here on the island. The three main things I love about the island are seashells, fishing and family visiting. You know all of those beautiful seashells you see in stores here? Most of those shells are collected on the island. Once in a while you will find a rare shell like I did. You will mainly find small shells, but most of them are very beautiful in an amazing way that you will be surprised by. Where I used to live in Ormond Beach on the east coast of Florida, the shells were broken and in small pieces. Here on the island, it looks like the shell creator decided to put all the good shells here. Also, have you seen people holding giant fish in a familiar looking place? That is here on the island. Sanibel and Captiva, a neighboring island, are world renowned for its fishing. The fish are plentiful and big. You dont have to travel very far to catch them. The time spent fishing is not boring or dull. Finally, living in Sanibel has brought many people to visit. In the seven months I have been here, my family and I have had 10 families visit us. It is a perfect place to have a family vacation or gathering. Its always fun when they come to visit. The short time that I have lived in Sanibel has been wonderful. My shell collection, fishing trips and all the family visiting are a few of the amazing things in Sanibel. I feel very fortunate to call Sanibel home, and I hope you are too. What Sanibel Means To Me by Isabella Sbarra-Michelland I close my eyes, listening to the gentle wind whispering in my ears. I can hear the soft rushing of the deep blue gulf in the background. I smell the salty breeze that the wind carries in and I can taste the drops of water washing up from the adventurous and wondrous sea. I notice the palm trees blowing in the wind, and feel the warming protective light of the sun on my cheeks. This is my life, and my home on Sanibel Island, the best vacation home on the planet. Its a blessing to be here, and I cant imagine my life anywhere else. Sanibel has made me who I am, and has also helped me realize what I want to be when I get older. I want my grandchildren to come visit me, and experience the dream I am living right now. Without Sanibel, I wouldnt be alive. My parents met here, on the islands Matzaluna. If I didnt have this wonderful and picturesque place, I wouldnt have met any of my amazing friends, or have gotten my baby sister, adopted from Vietnam. I adore all of the people who live here, and all of the carefully chosen places put here on the island. I love my house here, and all of my neighbors are like family to me. I walk down the streets, and I recognize everyone that I see. It feels like I have known all of these people forever, we are so close. Poof! I am transported to the middle of the causeway. I have two choices. I can travel over to Fort Myers, filled with many restaurants and stores. Or, I can stay on Sanibel, filled with friends, family, adventure and love. I glance over to Fort Myers, but then I realize that, in my heart, something is calling me and that voice is Sanibel. Sanibel is my home, and I cant imagine living anywhere else. Sanibel has made me who I am, and helped me realize what I want to be when I get older. This is my life, where I belong, and my true home forever.

43 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 19, 2012 Sanibel-Captiva Optimist Club Youth BasketballOver the summer, the City of Sanibel and the Sanibel-Captiva Optimist Club co-sponsored a basketball league at the Sanibel Recreation Center. The league was for both boys and girls from kindergarten through eighth grade, also introducing a Pre-K division of 3 and 4 year olds. The basketball league gave children the opportunity to learn and enjoy the game. The season ran from August to October, and was held on Saturdays between 9 a.m. and 12:45 p.m. Practice times were determined by coaches. About 80 kids were involved. The Optimist Club supplied team uniform shirts, awards and participated with the staff at the Rec Center in working with the kids. The activity was a real hit and is tentatively planned as an event for next summer. Election Of Officers The early October meeting of the Sanibel-Captiva Optimist Club featured the annual election of officers. Stan Howard was elected president, who appointed Dani Howard and Randy Carson as vice presidents. Suzanne Baxter will serve as secretary and John Basher was named treasurer. Directors will be Jim Baxter, Mike Macray, Richard McCurry, John F. Jones, Sue Basher, Dan Alton, Mark Steger and Donna Butz. Jingle Bell Walk The Sanibel-Captiva Optimist Club will sponsor a beach walk for charity currently planned for Saturday, December 1 at Bowmans Beach. This continues the successful series of walks called Wave Of Hope held in the past few years. Please watch this publication for more information and save the date to participate. Weight Room 101 At Rec CenterA new Weight Room Orientation and an Integrated Strength Training Program is now included with membership at the Sanibel Recreation Center Being physically fit is directly related to how much lean muscle an individual has. Past the age of 30, we have to make an effort to build and maintain lean muscle. Otherwise our body composition changes so that were carrying around more fat every year and less lean muscle. We all know what happens next we dont look as good, we feel sluggish and our sports endeavors arent quite up to par anymore. The good news is that we always have the ability to build lean muscle, no matter our age or fitness level. With a little time, effort and consistency we can gain lean muscle and become stronger, younger versions of ourselves. The Sanibel Recreation Center is introducing a new program that will help its members do just that. It is offering integrated, eight-week programs that teach how to properly and effectively weight train as well as incorporate cardio and stretching in order to be physically fit. The programs are progressive, from beginner through advanced, and can be adjusted as needed. Body composition and a fitness assessment (optional) are offered at the start of the program and then every eight weeks after that to ensure that progress is being made. The professional staff at the recreation center will be there for support along the way. The first week: Monday, October 22, 1 p.m., Weight Room Orientation Tuesday, October 23 1 p.m., Body Composition and Fitness Assessment Wednesday, October 24 1 p.m., Upper Body Cybex Machines Friday, October 26 1 p.m., Lower Body and Core Cybex Machines I am very excited to get this program started, said Laura McGowan, a Certified Personal Trainer heading up the program. The recreation center is a beautiful facility that offers enough fitness class diversity to please everyone. Now we can put together a program that will include weight training to really accelerate fitness. For safety reasons, class size is limited to 10 participants. Call 472 -0345 to sign up.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 19, 201244 Brown Named Sanibel Rec Volunteer Of The MonthThe City of Sanibel Recreation Department would like to recognize Volunteer of the Month Susan Brown. Brown is an active member at the Center 4 Life, where she also volunteers much of her time with several of the activities held there. She has volunteered there for three years and enjoys working closely with program administrator Sandi McDougall, as well as the other members and staff at the Center 4 Life. As a member, Brown enjoys Bridge For Fun nights on Mondays and Wednesdays and the potluck entertainment during season. Browns favorite part of being a volunteer is the friendships she has made and working hard to make events special and enjoyable for everyone. She loves to help people and see them smile. I feel a great deal of gratitude for being allowed to be part of such a warm, friendly place, she said. The Center 4 Life is like a second home with its members being an extended family. We are fortunate to have such a great facility with so many choices of activities at affordable prices. A Georgia native, Brown grew up in Atlanta and graduated from Georgia State University. She and her family have been visiting Sanibel for over 35 years. Knowing her and her husband, John, would want live here after retiring, they purchased a lot in 2001 and built their home. The Browns have one daughter who lives in Tampa and a 2-year-old Jack Russell Terrier named Britainye, who enjoys taking walks on the Sanibel beaches every morning and evening. For information on joining your friends and neighbors who serve as Sanibel Recreation Center volunteers, call 472-0345. Susan Brown Superior InteriorsBeautiful Dining Rooms Begin With Beautiful Window Treatmentsby Cindy MalszyckiGreat top treatments are the crowning glory of any window treatment. Sheers, overdraperies or side panels are usually pretty commonplace. Top treatments, however, are unique and make a definite statement that shows your special style and personality. What better way to set off your dining room than with a custom designed window treatment? Top treatments can actually save you energy, transform the height and width of your windows, coordinate with other fabrics in the room, but best of all, they cover up ugly, naked rods. The most attractive drapery can be spoiled by opening it and exposing plain white rods. The simplest and most well known top treatment is probably a pleater or shirred valance. Made like its traversing drapery counterpart, it helps to finish off the treatment and carry the fabric and color across the window area. These valances can be dressed up with scallops, trims, braiding, or even a contrasting fabric to set it off from your main drapery fabric. Shirred on valances offer a softer style definitely more casual for those casual dining rooms. They can be shaped at the bottom, installed on multiple rods and will help to transform the shape and feel of the treatment. Pouf and balloon valances are also great looks, and can be made by adjusting the size and amounts of yardage used to fabricate the valance. No matter what style you choose, a distinctive top treatment will surely be a beautiful focal point in your dining room design.Cindy Malszycki is an interior designer on Sanibel/Captiva Islands.

Are We Fast Enough For You?by Bryan HayesAir conditioning service is greatly dependent on seasons, much like the rest of my most favorite island on the planet Sanibel. When season picks up, so does the number of emergency calls we receive. Same goes for temperatures. As soon as the temps rise or cool, those emergency service calls begin to flood in. Considering our climate, and yes, I admit that I do have a small bias, air conditioning is likely one of the most important things that we have in our lives. It not only makes us more comfortable whenever the temperatures begin to make it unbearable to be indoors, it also protects our beloved homes from humidity and mold damage. Now, imagine coming home from a business trip in August. Youre looking forward to the comfort of your own bed, maybe a nice glass of wine while you wind down from all the traveling. You open your front door and you are greeted by a blanket of heat that likely exceeds the above-90 temps outside. In situations like this its invaluable for your service provider to be able to come to your rescue 24 hours a day any day of the week. And its amazing how frequently this kind of stuff happens to our clients. Emergencies are guaranteed to happen during the most inconvenient moments, that is why they are emergencies. Whether its a house you are renting to a group of vacationers or a home you live in, it can be miserable to wait for service for even a few hours. Your air conditioning contractor should always put your needs first and be able to help you out in an emergency day or night. Thats why we are always here and just a phone call away. Bryan Hayes is a Sanibel air conditioning contractor. He also owns, with his brother Todd, an electrical business on Sanibel.

45 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 19, 2012 Rantz Retiring After 52 Years With The Twins; 26 As Minor Leagues Directorby Ed FrankOne of the great benefits of journalism is the opportunity to meet and know so many interesting people in all walks of life. When I took on the assignment 12 years ago to write a weekly sports column for this newspaper, one of the first baseball representatives I met was Jim Rantz, director of the minor leagues for the Minnesota Twins. Knowing little about the Twins and even less about their farm system other than they had a Class A team here, the Fort Myers Miracle, I relied heavily on Jim for information, to arrange interviews and even to set up photographs. And for 12 years he always had time to answer my questions many of which he must have thought were pretty dumb. On Monday, Jim announced his retirement after 52 years with the Twins organization. In this day and age, can you imagine anyone working for the same company for 52 years? As senior director of Minor League Operations, Jim by far was the longest running minor league director in all of baseball. And he has long been recognized as one of the very best. He has been a member of the Twins organization since its inception in 1961 after signing his first professional contract with the old Washington Senators in 1960. As a pitcher for the University of Minnesota, he earned the win for his school in the deciding game of the 1960 College World Series. After five years as a player and manager, he joined the Twins front office first as assistant public relations manager before moving into minor league scouting and ultimately heading the minor league system starting in 1986. Through the years, he has been responsible for negotiating thousands of minor league contracts and player development for the major league Twins. In 1982, Jim drove to Peoria, Illinois, to see his son play in a college baseball game. While there, he saw a young Kirby Puckett play and, as a result, the Twins drafted Puckett with their first pick that year. A 10-time All-Star, Puckett led the Twins to World Series wins in 1987 and 1991. This has been an incredible journey for me and my family and I am most grateful for the Griffith family for bringing me into the game and to the Pohlad family for allowing me to contribute to the Twins organization for 52 years, the 75-year-old Rantz said in his retirement announcement. In addition to numerous baseball awards, he was elected to the Twins Hall of Fame in 2007. I will never forget that honor. It was very humbling to become a member of this select group and it is the highlight of my career, he said. Only 19 Twins players, announcers and officials have received that honor. I am certain that Jim could write a fascinating book about his experiences, the talent he developed, the players and managers he worked with over the years and how the game has changed in the five-plus decades he has been associated with the Twins. For me personally, Spring Training just wont be the same without Jim Rantz. But after 52 years, he has sure earned that retirement. Thanks, Jim, and best wishes for a long and healthy retirement.

And a few of those teams raced against Mother Nature as a stormfront rolled in at the end of play. Grabbing top honors and finishing two strokes out in front was the team of Clark Rambo, Clarence Reed, Bobbie McGlynn and Jack Stahl. In other news, Beachview Golf Pro Gene Taylor and The Lazy Flamingos Matt Kuzyk are ready for the 1st annual Charity Golf Scramble for Calebs Crusade Against Childhood Cancer.

Gene Taylor and Matt Kuzyk Clark Rambo, Clarence Reed, Bobbie McGlynn and Jack Stahl The storm clouds rolling in during last weeks Friday Night Golf Scramble Future Bright For Cougar Footballsubmitted by Eric PfeiferCanterbury School started a new 11-man football program this year in their middle school. Twenty four young men endured practices in the heat this past summer in preparation for a tough six-game schedule, which started in late August. Fifteen of the players are eighth graders and are looking forward to playing next year on the high school level at Canterbury, which will switch its program to 11-man. Currently, the high school is competing in a seven-man program due a shortage players. Last year, the high school played in a six-man league and won the state championship, and this year, they are currently undefeated. New head coach Mike Marciano was hired to not only transition the program but also to field competitive teams immediately. Marciano had winning records at each of his previous schools including another local school in Fort Myers. Every day is an exciting challenge as we take the football program to the 11-man level, said Marciano. The work that Marc Taglieri has done to get us to this point has been instrumental in the foundation of what we have now. The current players, along with myself, constantly try to represent the Canterbury character in all we do to try and recruit the student body and attract new student athletes. The attitude is positive and within the upcoming years we will make tremendous strides to put a product on the field that will not only compete but will make its name in this area and then beyond. As I say to the players and their parents, youre either part of the train or youre in the tracks, he added. Either way, this train is rolling. Out of the 24 players on the middle school team, only two had ever played tackle football previously. Head coach Dave Owens started working with the kids in the summer developing a strength and conditioning program. Thanks to the Cougar Athletic Club, the players were able to utilize a brand new state of the art weight room at the school. By August, the kids were ready to suit up and start hitting. Although the kids inexperience showed at the beginning of the first game, Owens settled them down and the team ended up tying a bigger and stronger Southwest Florida Christian Academy squad with a score of 28-28. Two local Sanibel residents, Oliver Goss and John Pfeifer, are playing on the team. Goss brought his superior soccer skills to the team to handle the kicking while also playing on the offensive and defensive line. Pfeifer plays offensive and defensive tackle, where he gets to beat up on tackle the opponents (something he did not have the chance to do in the Sanibel Flag Football League). After a couple of formidable opponents, the kids finally pulled it all together and beat ECS last week, 48-14. Owens was really proud of the efforts of the kids. We started the season with only two boys that had played football. The boys have worked incredibly hard this season and most importantly they have improved, said the coach. The future is very bright for the Cougar football program. ECS only scored one offensive touchdown. The proud defensive coordinator, Kearney Hall said, The boys have worked very hard every week to get better. We are now beginning to see a winning team. Canterbury has always been known for its strong academic history, but now the school is also trying even harder to develop some competitive student-athletes. Headmaster Tony Paulus took over the leadership of the school five years ago, and he has always wanted to compete with the other local schools in all sports. The school recently hired Marc Taglieri as its athletic director. In one year, Taglieri has already proven that Canterbury can compete in more than just academics. Five years ago, I formed an Athletic Task Force that established goals to improve our then mediocre athletic program, said Paulus. One of our goals was to re-establish football at Canterbury School. Last year, our six-man team was the first team in Lee County to win a state championship in football. With Marc Taglieris leadership in place and under the direction of our Upper School head football coach Mike Marciano, and Middle School head football coach David Owens, we are in the process of establishing what I am sure will be a very successful 11-man program, grades 6 to 12. Admittedly, never in my wildest dreams did I think we would have an 11-man program in our Middle School, Paulus added. I am very proud of our Middle School players for winning their first game of the season, for being the first group of Middle School football players ever, and for establishing their permanent legacy.

This trip will be led by Dr. Ran Niehoff, an ordained minister who served as senior minister at the Congregational United Church of Christ on Sanibel from 1991 to 2008. The tour departs from Southwest Florida International Airport on Friday, April 5, and will return on Monday, April 15. Travel highlights include Galilee, the Dead Sea, Bethlehem, Jerusalem, Judea, Caesarea, the Rothschild Tombs and the Hinnom Valley. The all-inclusive nine-day, eight-night tour is $6,360 per person for double occupancy. Single occupancy packages are available. Package includes all air travel and luxury motor coach transportation, boutique hotel accommodations, all meals, travel and evacuation insurance and an Israeli guide. The registration and full payment deadline is Monday, December 10. Travel, especially on study tours, never ceases to excite me, and it is always a pleasure to be joined by friends who are interested to learn about the history and culture of the important places we visit, said Niehoff, who has led six study tours to Israel. Learning how these places and their subjects came into history energizes the mind, deepens empathy, and adds meaning to life today. Niehoff is an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ, who retired on Sanibel in 2008 after 41 years of full-time parish ministry. He served congregations as pastor in West Seneca and Wellsville, New York; Marblehead, Massachusetts; and Sanibel. Niehoff graduated from Washington University in St. Louis with a degree in Philosophy before he entered divinity school at Eden Theological Seminary in Webster Groves to earn his Masters and Doctorate degrees. Subsequent sabbatical leaves took Dr. Niehoff to Europe to study at the Jerusalem Center for Biblical Studies in Israel, the American School for Classical Studies in Greece, the American School in Rome and Westminster College at Cambridge University in the United Kingdom. Before the trip, a short meeting will be scheduled for participants to become acquainted and ask questions. There is also a suggested reading list for this study tour. The tour will have 30 (and no more than 36) people; if the trip minimum of 30 is not met by December 10, there will be a full refund. For a detailed itinerary and additional information about this study tour, call BIG ARTS at 395-0900. More information is also available online at www.BIGARTS. org.

San-Cap Kiwanis Named Title Sponsor Of CECIs Beach BallThe Sanibel-Captiva Kiwanis Club will once again be the title sponsor for the Childrens Education Center of the Islands annual Beach Ball. The fundraiser will be held on Saturday, November 17 at The Sanctuary Golf Club from 7 to 10 p.m. There will be appetizers, dinner, dessert, an open bar and music. Cost is $75 per person. The Beach Ball raises much-needed funds for scholarships for CECI, without which some island families wouldnt be able to afford quality care and education for their children. The island economy is dependent upon the services from these families who work in varying capacities on Sanibel and Captiva. Since 1999, the preschool has raised more than $200,000 for scholarships. Make your reservations for the Beach Ball by sending a check payable to CECI, 350 Casa Ybel Road, Sanibel, FL 33957 along with name and phone number. Babysitting will also be available at CECI; space is limited. Kiwanis Club members Barry Roth, Jonathan Tongyai and Ed Ridlehoover (standing in back) presented a check to CECI students Cycling Safety Notes USE CAUTION WHEN CROSSING STREETS, AND DO SO AT LEGAL CROSSWALKS, IF POSSIBLE Always use caution when crossing any street (or driveway) that intersects with our Paths; use the crosswalk if available.

49 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 19, 2012 From page 19Birds Eye Viewtime in the community trying to help (or in some cases, force) people to co-exist. But I still have hope for the people of Sanibel. I write this column, and it is through this column that I am constantly trying to help the well-meaning people of Sanibel understand that sometimes even their actions in the end are not much different from those who forced the natives of this country to go to the reservations. As fate would have it, I have now been in a relationship for some time with a woman who is originally from Peru and of Quechua Indian decent (the tribe where the Incas come from). Because of her association with her people, I have taken an increased interest in the native cultures of Peru and how they connect to the natural world. I may even do some part-time research on the harpy eagles of the Amazon basin in the coming years. But as I become educated about how things are in Peru, I am fascinated to see the same tragedies that played out in the United States in the 1700s and 1800s are again happening in Peru today. Will civilization never figure it out that the best way for it to survive is to live in harmony with the natural world and not destroy it? Are we modern humans doomed to rape and pillage our planets natural resources until we, ourselves, reach the brink of extinction? I always said that I thought we were smarter than that, but I am not so sure. Next week, I will present a letter that was read by an Amarakaeri Indian from the province of Madre de Dios, Peru in the year 2008 as testimony to a way of life that is being destroyed. As you read it, I would like you to read it as though a Native American is speaking the words. The similarities are frightening.

Place a teaspoon of vegetable mixture on one half of each wonton skin. Fold the opposite halves over to make half moon dumplings, keeping the bottoms flat. Press edges firmly together, making sure that they are closed to prevent filling from leaking out. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a nonstick skillet and brown bottoms of dumplings.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 19, 201252 10K Race 4 FISH Rings In Another Successful EventIt only takes a breezy, sunny morning on Sanibel, 389 runners, 135 volunteers, 56 business sponsors, the islands service organizations, the citys Vice Mayor and eager supporters to root for the runners. Combined, you get the recipe for another successful 10K Race 4 FISH. The overall winner of the October 13 race was 19-year-old Ryan Stafford of Fort Myers, who completed the course in 35 minutes and 17 seconds. The overall female winner was 42-year-old Rachel Lee of Cape Coral, who finished in 39 minutes and 14 seconds. The weather couldnt have been better as the volunteers geared up to maintain safety, provide water and cheer the runners on. Several participants stated that this was the best race they have competed in, especially because of the Sanibel scenery serving as a back drop, the great organization of the race by the organizers and the hundreds of supporters along the route. We are in an exceptional good mood after such a successful event. The conditions were perfect. We had a great runner turn out this year and even more sponsors, said John Pryor, co-chairman of the race committee. Once again, the FISH 10K race was held in conjunction with the Fort Myers Track Club, whose superb technical direction and assistance in the race meant that everything went without a hitch. We were able to reach FISHs objective of raising funds that will allow us to continue to provide a full range of human services to our island neighbors. We are grateful to everyone who has helped us make our FISH 10K a permanent feature in the island calendar for many years to come. We couldnt ask for better support from the City of Sanibel, police department, service organizations, our sponsors and, notably, our great volunteers who helped bring all of this together. The race also saw its youngest registered participant this year, 3-year-old Darren DJ Jenkins, who began running at age 2.

Wood Island Real Estate and Kim Hoagland and Debi Knight of SanibelIsland.com, the state of the art medical vehicle staffed by members of the Radiology Regional Center will be offering digital mammogram screenings, which take as little as 15 minutes to complete. We want to make it more convenient for women, in any community, to take 15 minutes and have a mammogram done, said Bondurant, a breast cancer survivor for two years. Because early detection can save lives, I wanted to reach out to women on the island who may be uninsured or in need of this service. According to the Radiology Regional Center, a staggering one-third of breast cancer deaths each year could be prevented through early detection. Approximately one out of every eight women develops breast cancer during the course of her lifetime, and breast cancer ranks second as the cause of cancer deaths in American women, claiming more than 40,000 lives annually. The three keys to early detection, recommended by the American Cancer Society, include: Practice regular breast self exams (women 20 years and older) Clinical evaluation of the breast by a physician: Every three years (women 20 to 40 years old) Every year (women 40-plus years old) Annual mammogram beginning at age 40, unless clinically indicated sooner Bondurant is sponsoring seven Mobile Mammo screenings during the October 28 screening event, while Hoagland and Knight are sponsoring two. While most medical insurance companies will cover the expense of an annual mammogram, a discounted $150 fee for patients electing to self-pay is offered. No prescription is necessary for a screening mammogram. The idea for bringing Radiology Regional Centers mobile mammography services to Sanibel came up during the Celebrity Island Dinner fundraiser for The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum earlier this month at Traders. SFRD Chief Danny Duncan suggested that Fire Station #1 host the Mobile Mammo bus, since breast cancer has impacted the lives of several members of his fire and rescue team. In addition to breast cancer screenings, several members of the fire department will be onsite wearing pink T-shirts and serving cups of pink lemonade to all in attendance. Since the firemen arent doing a calendar this year, if you want to have your photo taken with them, well take your picture and send it to you, said Bondurant. Also, Darla Bezanson of Sunbelt Title, a recent breast cancer survivor, is donating cookies decorated with pink breast cancer awareness ribbons on them. We are hoping that everybody in the community comes out to support this cause, whether theyre getting a mammogram or not, added Bondurant. Everybody is invited to wear pink on October 28.

Last week, I reviewed the many differences between a Durable Power of Attorney and a Guardianship. Today, Im going to explain the differences between using a Durable Power of Attorney when its grantor becomes incapacitated as opposed to using a Revocable Living Trust. These differences can best be related through two different residents at the Larson Pavilion at Shell Point Retirement Center, Lucy and Sarah. The Larson Pavilion is where residents move when they require full assisted living. Many of them suffer from memory loss and related disorders. Lucy had a revocable living trust that named her son James as her successor trustee. When Lucy established her revocable trust, all of her bank and brokerage accounts were transferred into her trust. She served as her own trustee for many years until her diagnosis and subsequent move into the Pavilion. At that time, she resigned as her own trustee, resulting in James taking over that role. The transition was seamless. Lucy signed her resignation document, which was then forwarded to her banks and brokers. James was now listed on the accounts as trustee. He has the ability to write checks for his mother, pay her bills, roll over certificates of deposit, direct the financial planner for Lucys investments and do all the things that Lucy would have done had she remained capable. While James lives in a midwestern city, he did not have to travel to Southwest Florida to sign any documents or meet with any financial advisors or bankers. It was all taken care of over the telephone or through written communications. Sarah, on the other hand, did not have a revocable living trust when she moved into the Pavilion at Shell Point. Sarah believed that since she did not have a taxable estate, she would circumvent the need for establishing a revocable living trust by designating all of her accounts as Transfer on Death to her children. She did, however, have a Last Will & Testament as well as a Durable Power of Attorney document that named her son Robert as her agent. When it became apparent that Sarah would no longer be capable of writing her checks, paying her bills and managingcontinued on page 61 Will PowerDifferences Between Durable Power Of Attorney And Revocable Trustsby Craig R.

57 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 19, 2012 School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My fourth grade son is not doing well in school this year. His grades are going down weekly. Hes a good child and he tries to do his homework, but we are becoming very frustrated. Its not clear to me why he cant do the work now. His teacher is concerned, but thinks that by studying more he will do better. Julia S., Estero Julia, Fourth grade is a more difficult year than the earlier elementary grades as expectations are becoming much higher for student performance. Your sons teachers advice is very appropriate in that he probably does need to spend extra time studying, but more analysis of why your son is having trouble is warranted. Students dont succeed for a number of reasons. There may be health or emotional difficulties that interfere with learning. How is his vision and hearing? Does he have allergies? Is your son comfortable in his new classroom? Does he have a couple of good friends? Is the schools climate supportive? These types of concerns need to be identified and addressed otherwise they can lead to school failure very easily. If you can rule out any mental or physical health issues, it is time to look at how he is learning. Here are some questions you may ask him and observations you can make to learn more about how he learns and why he may not be doing well. To begin, ask him if the work is too hard, be specific with your questions. For example, you might ask if the new math lesson on division is too hard for him. If something is too challenging he may need additional instruction on the topic. Narrow down the area that is too difficult so he can have practice on exactly what he doesnt understand. Observe to see if your son completes his academic tasks but it just takes him a long time. If that is the case, he needs more practice to build up his speed and probably accuracy in that subject. Maybe the case is that your son just doesnt want to do the academic task, he is able to but is not motivated to do so. If that is the situation, you might want to implement a small reward system for completing homework in a timely way. It is also important to realize that generally speaking in the fourth grade year students progress from learning to read to reading to learn. This is a big step for most children and does require extra time to study and comprehend all the new information that is now presented through text instead of verbally by the teacher. Using a good comprehension review strategy like a KWL chart (What do I already know about this topic, what do I want to know about this topic and what have I learned about this topic) can increase comprehension easily. With time, effort and by utilizing some of the above strategies, your son should begin to learn how to study more efficiently and effectively. Ms. Greggs is adjunct faculty at Edison State College where she teaches psychology and education courses. She is also Nationally Certified School Psychologist and consultant for School Consultation Services, a private educational consulting company. Questions for publication may be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Not all questions submitted can be addressed through this publication. Middle School Students Get Out To VoteCanterbury School eighth graders will be well informed and ready to vote this year. In their civics class, students have studied the candidates, their platforms and their backgrounds. Leading up to the November 6 election, civics teacher Dan Van Campen has put together some special lessons: On October 11, Chauncey Goss visited classes to answer questions the students have about Washington, D.C., and how our government works. From Gosss website: As Deputy Staff Director for the U.S. House Budget Committee, he worked closely with Congressman Paul Ryan. Chaunceys experience provides him with a unique and valuable understanding of the federal governments budgetary process and fiscal policy. In addition to Gosss visit, on October 18, students will hold a parking lot rally. Students will hold signs and share slogans as they show support of their chosen presidential candidates. On October 25 from 9:30 to 10 a.m., four students Olivia Curcione, Sameer Walha, John Gamba and Jacob Roberge will give speeches representing their candidates to sway eighth grade voters prior to the election. Finally, on November 6 from 9:30 to 10 a.m., seventh and eighth grade students vote for president. Voting will be tallied by the end of the day. It is always interesting to see how closely the popular vote coincides with the nations.

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. Sami Ann, 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.

Space is currently beyond capacity for housing stray cats and kittens and cats available for adoption. The shelter has over 260 cats including 100 in foster care that are ready to come back to the shelter for adoption. Meanwhile, 10 to 20 new cats and three to four litters arrive daily. The agency is asking the public to take advantage of the shelters current adoption promotions and save a life. During the remainder of October, all pet adoption fees are half off the regular fee. That means it will only cost $12 to $48 to adopt a pet. Adoption hours are Monday through Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The shelter is located at 5600 Banner Drive in Fort Myers. Reduced adoption fees still include the same services: spay/neuter surgery, age appropriate vaccinations, microchip ID, de-worming, flea treatment, aids and leukemia test for cats, heartworm test for dogs six months and older, Lee County pet license for pets three months and older, a bag of Science Diet pet food and a 10-day health guarantee. Adopters also have access to a pet behavior help line. The public can also help by spaying and neutering their pets so that shelters are not faced with this dilemma year in and year out, said Donna Ward, LCDAS director. The best shelter is a caring community and we need every pet owners support to put an end to euthanasia of healthy adoptable animals, she adds. Current lists of pets for adoption and lost pets are available online at www. LeeLostPets.com. The website updates hourly.

59 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 19, 2012 Dr. DaveCalcium Confusion Clarifiedby Dr. Dave HepburnIs calcium good for us? Absolutely. If you dont take it, it could kill you. But I heard calcium is bad for us, and might cause a heart attack. Absolutely. If you take it, it could kill you. Hope that clarifies it for you. Next. Well, as we need Vitamin D to absorb calcium, should we try and get more sun? Absolutely. Get in the sun because taking calcium without Vitamin D is like fishing without a hook. But isnt the sun going to give us skin cancer or possibly make us look Australian? Absolutely. Get out of the sun. It could kill you. Now what about magnesi... forget it. Sure. Next. Osteoporosis is destroying many of you at this very moment and will destroy many more lives before a cure is ever found. 30,000 Canadian hips fracture every year. Every 17 minutes, a Canadian hip tragically snaps like a dry-roasted pretzel in the Eastern Gobi in August during a drought and sometimes a famine. Twenty two percent of patients who fracture a hip are dead in less than a year. Not scary enough for you? Well, 60,000 Canadians break their back every year, making lifting a case of beer next to impossible! OK, now that I have your attention... take calcium, right? Builds bones and all that. A little is good for you, so a lot should be even better, right? Hold up! Taking calcium pills both with or without vitamin D is associated with a 15 percent increased risk for heart attacks and strokes. Treating 1,000 people with calcium for five years would cause an additional six heart attacks or strokes and prevent only three fractures. Calcium in pills, unlike calcium in foods, causes a spike in blood calcium levels that can damage arteries by: increasing clot formation (It is the clot that kills.), thickening neck artery plaques and calcifying main arteries. For you guys on my hockey team, those are all bad things. And taking calcium without taking Vitamin D is even worse. Its associated with a whopping 30 percent increase in heart attack risk. Calcium supplements have been widely promoted on the grounds that they are natural and, therefore, a safe way of preventing osteoporotic fractures. Like lots of natural stuff, it is now becoming apparent that taking calcium in one or two daily dollops is NOT natural. So, how do we take calcium without... taking calcium? Diet, naturally. Take it incorrectly and you could end up in the cardiac section of the hospital with cardiac doctors who smell nice and floss daily. Dont take calcium and you could end up in the orthopedic ward with doctors who make Cro Magnon man look like Justin Bieber. But you get better meals. Its your choice. OK, this next part goes on your fridge with all the other Dr. Dave columns, complete with photo and a reminder to pick up (shameless plug warning) yogurt and The Doctor is In(sane) for yourself and 37 relatives: The recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for calcium from a combination of diet plus supplements is 1,000 mg a day for adult women until age 50 years and 1,200 mg a day for women older than 50 years of age. But Get As Much From Diet As You Can! Only take calcium supplements if you dont get your RDA in diet, i.e. you hate yogurt as much as I do. And spread it out over the day. There are plenty of charts showing what foods are best for calcium but certainly the king is yogurt. An 8 oz. cup contains 415 mg. I suggest mixing it with broccoli and a Snickers bar and youre halfway there. Is that a good idea? Absolutely... or it could kill you. 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. Dr. Dave is returning to Africa on safari in September 2013.

ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 19, 201260 deaRPharmacistWhich Cinnamon Do You Sprinkle?by Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: I heard that cinnamon might lower blood sugar. Is this true? Can I use cinnamon spice to lower my blood sugar if Im taking metformin? Does cinnamon have other health benefits? EG, Decatur, Illinois There are different kinds of cinnamon, and the spice that you sprinkle on your oatmeal is not the best one in terms of health benefits. Yeah, for real! Didnt you know there were varieties of cinnamon? I think its alright to combine cinnamon spice with metformin, but if you consume commercial supplements along with your medications, I suggest you track your blood sugar routinely and gain your physicians blessings. Remember, taking two anti-diabetic agents will enhance the blood sugar-lowering effect, and if it plunges too low, you get hypoglycemia. If you consume authentic, high-quality brands of cinnamon, this could actually happen to you. Symptoms of hypoglycemia include nausea, sweating, palpitations, weakness, fainting and anxiety. Does cinnamon work? Several studies that have established health benefits for the warming, aromatic spice of autumn. Researchers who conducted a meta-analysis concluded that cinnamon extract could reduce fasting blood sugar. Thats great because its well established that elevated fasting blood sugars are a risk factor for diabetes and heart disease. The glycemic action of cinnamon is almost comparable to your medication but dont take that as an invitation to stop your metformin! My point is that cinnamon has some merit s that needs to be further elucidated. Heres one reference: Davis PA, Yokoyama W. Cinnamon intake lowers fasting blood glucose. J Med Food. April 2011. Another study found that daily intake of cinnamon (for about two months) could significantly lower the fasting blood glucose, weight, and body fat mass in a patients with Type II diabetes, as compared to a control group. Scientists are trying to tease out whether cinnamon helps with colorectal cancer now. Just outstanding... but wait! As I mentioned earlier, there are different varieties of cinnamon. The most popular kind is called Cassia and its found in grocery stores, and served at coffee shops and restaurants. Its everywhere. Genuine cinnamon the kind I strongly recommend is called Ceylon, and you must buy it from nice spice shops, some herbal apothecaries or online. Cassia and Ceylon cinnamon come from two different species. Cassia, while tasty and used by millions of us, has a stronger, harsher tasted compared to Ceylon. Cassia is actually known to contain a small amount of a moderately toxic component called coumarin. You dont have to worry about this, but hypothetically, if you took a ginormous dose, it could cause liver and kidney damage. Its also known to thin blood, considered a good thing but those of you on anti-coagulant drugs need to know. Ceylon has a fine texture, tastes lovely, and contains a lot of health-promoting compounds. As we head into fall, sprinkle it on everything because Ceylon cinnamon contains eugenol and terpinoids which are strong antiviral agents.

A mother and daughter team, Lizzie is a retired RN and health educator, and Pryce is a licensed psychotherapist in private practice who specializes in the care of elders and people with chronic illnesses. Dear Mom & Me, I am a grandmother with five grandchildren from two families. They are great kids, but have no manners. Please and thank you are just not part of their vocabulary. I would like to discuss this with my daughter, but just do not know how to bring it up. What do you think I should do? Mercedes Dear Mercedes, Lack of social graces seems to be a common complaint. They do not know how to say thank you for gifts and just expect people to keep on giving with no comment. Some say it is because children spend so much time under paid supervision that parents do not have the time to teach at the end of the day. Do your children, the parents of your grandchildren, thank you for their gifts? Children learn by example and maybe their parents just dont think it is important and there really isnt anything you can do. Lizzie Dear Mercedes, Well, somewhere in the middle of please and thank you, these words are not part of their vocabulary. It is difficult for me to believe that your grandchildren have no sense of basic manners. It would be just as difficult for me to believe if you told me they have the social polish of a cultured adult. Now that we are a little closer to what is real, what about modeling appropriate manners while you are with your grandchildren. Always use please and thank you. Encourage them to do the same. When they do, tell them how much you appreciate their manners. You do not always need to have a discussion. I can not imagine how it would begin Help me understand why your children have no manners or Help me understand why you have failed in your parental responsibility of teaching manners to your children. I cannot think of a positive outcome of the discussion. You have to choose your battles. Also, modeling appropriate behavior and reinforcing appropriate behavior is, at times, better than bringing attention to negative behavior. Pryce Lizzie and Pryces email address is email@example.com.

61 ISLAND SUN OCTOBER 19, 2012 Got A Problem? Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: I need to change my negative thinking to some positive thinking. Can you help with how to get started because my negative thoughts are constant?A: Psychologist Carl Jung referred to this constant mental chatter of the ego as Psychic tension. We all go there at times. There is a way to transition this Psychic tension to positive affirmation. Jung referred to this as Psychic equilibrium. It is reprograming the tension by making a shift to positively affirm a thought that releases the psychic tension. It is like changing the track on a CD from a song we dont like to one we do. Its switching from the mind of the ego to the essence of the soul. It does take practice and consistency, its a matter of continually redirecting negative thoughts in your mind to positive optimistic thoughts. The following steps can guide you to this shift: 1. Become aware of your thoughts. When you are in a difficult situation, reflect on the situation and what your thoughts were before the situation developed. 2. As you develop your awareness of these negative thought patterns, especially, in difficult situations, create a positive thought to replace the negative thought, and always give your energy to the positive thought. Always focus on how you want things to be. 3. Constantly remember, what you focus on expands. You attract into your life what you think most about. It only makes sense that when you choose to focus on something positive, positivity emerges. By now, with your increased awareness, you should have a pretty good sense of how to focus on what you what rather than what you dont want. 4. Keep in mind that you are looking to raise your level of consciousness and to cultivate a positive mind frame that is with you all the time, especially during stressful times, especially the ones out of your control. 5. It can be most helpful when you compile a list of positive affirmations that appeal to you. Put the list somewhere you can see it, so that you are reading and saying your affirmations daily. If you start with a word I or I am or I have you are validating your affirmation. Always use the present tense such as I have a beautiful loving spirit. Before you know it, the affirmations you select will become a part of your daily self-talk. You will be repeating them quietly to yourself when you are driving, in the shower, etc, and especially when you lie down to go to sleep at night. The following are a list of affirmations to get you started if you dont already have some that you have incorporated: I am calm and peaceful. I have wonderful relationships in my life. I am beautiful inside and out. I see beauty in everything. I am grateful for all my God given gifts. I am financially abundant. I have optimal health. I am always kind and generous. I am spiritually alive. I am blessed to have so much in life. I am optimistic and positive in all situations. I love each day and live it to its fullest. From page 56Will Powerher investments, Robert decided that he would have to begin serving under the Durable Power of Attorney document. The banks and brokerage firms all wanted originals of the Durable Power of Attorney. Since Robert only had one original (as that is the norm), he didnt know what to do. Robert was advised to record the original Durable Power of Attorney on the Lee County public records and obtain as many certified copies as he needed for each different financial institution. So thats what he did, and most of the banks and investment firms accepted the certified copies. The banks and brokerage firms, however, all wanted Robert to complete paperwork and to provide personal identification verifying his identity before they would put him on the accounts. This required Robert to personally visit each financial institution where Sarah had an account. Sarah was one of those investors who looked for the best CD rate in town, so she had certificates of deposit scattered among several banks. Robert had to fly down from his hometown in the northeast to accomplish these frustrating tasks. Several banks said that they needed to send the Durable Power of Attorney document up to their legal department before Robert would be installed as a signor on the account. You can therefore see the difference between using a Durable Power of Attorney and a Revocable Living Trust when the grantor becomes incapacitated. Im not here to say that Durable Powers of Attorney are unworthy. They are an important document that everyones estate plan should include. Even those with trusts need a Durable Power of Attorney document so that your loved ones can transact business on assets outside of the trust (IRA accounts are a good example of such an account). And placing assets and accounts in joint names with loved ones is also not a good idea to circumvent a trust. Ive written on that topic before. It is too large to cover in one column. My website (listed below) has videos and blogs on the dangers of joint accounts. The moral of the stories of Lucy and Sarah is that revocable trusts are not just probate and tax avoidance vehicles. Trusts can serve as valuable tools when our loved ones become incapacitated as they are much easier transitional devices than are powers of attorney. But then again, trusts arent for everyone. If you dont have a trust, you should have an up-to-date Durable Power of Attorney. The laws on powers of attorney changed substantially last year, so in either event, its important that you confer with your advisors to ensure that your documents are up-to-date and right for your situation.

Add cabbage, carrots, pepper, and salt to taste; cook for 2 minutes more. Remove vegetables from heat, drain and add cilantro when cooled. Place a teaspoon of vegetable mixture on one half of each wonton skin. Fold the opposite halves over to make half moon dumplings, keeping the bottoms flat. Press edges firmly together, making sure that they are closed to prevent filling from leaking out. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a nonstick skillet and brown bottoms of dumplings. Add water and immediately cover to steam the dumplings. Cook dumplings until the water has evaporated and the bottom gets crispy again and sticks to the pot. Serve warm with soy sauce and vinegar for dipping. Yields 24 servings Vegetable Potstickers
