3 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 2012Sanibel Historical Village Grateful To Many For A Successful SeasonAs the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village continues preparations for its November 7 re-opening, president Alex Werner said there were a lot of people responsible for the museums record-breaking 2011-12 season. The list is endless, and I want to thank everybody for all of their hard work, beginning with our tireless docents and volunteers, Werner said. The museum had an extremely successful year, with record-breaking attendance and more children attending than ever before. Werner thanked the board of directors: Dorothy Donaldson, vice president; Bill Bachman, treasurer; Jan Halliday, secretary; Paula Newton; Gayle Pence; Karl Rodman; Debbie Staley; and most recent member, Jim Frizzell. It was the hard work and great ideas of this board that led the way for last years achievements, Werner said. They have lots of great ideas for the upcoming season, too. Planning is well underway for our annual fundraiser, docent training is scheduled, and we have several special events in the works. We hope to surpass last years success with the help of all of our devoted volunteers. The museum, which operates as a nonprofit organization, re-opens on Wednesday, November 7, and is open Wednesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $5 for adults over age 18; those younger than 18 are admitted free.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 20124 Veterans, Now Its Your Turn!submitted by Ted TysonOn Monday, November 12 from 10:45 a.m. to noon at Sanibel City Hall, and from noon to 4 p.m. in the Baileys Center parking lot, the Sanibel Veterans Group, the City of Sanibel, the Island Sun and River Weekly, Bank of the Islands, The Military Museum of Naples and the Lee Coast Chapter of MOAA, along with residents, visitors and other veterans and their families and friends will honor veterans from the tri-county area of Southwest Florida for their service and sacrifice. A lot of work by many people has gone into this ceremony, display and outreach to veterans and we hope that the two events are overflowing with people and joy. But that is just the one side of the coin. On the other side, while veterans are encouraged to attend to get information regarding projects, groups and associations that can assist them, all veterans have an opportunity and yes, in the minds of veterans, a duty to help with the history of the American fighting man and woman. Many veterans have stories and insights into combat that America needs to know about. With the last veteran of World War I having died, the real person accounts of warfare, so essential to the history of America and its heroic men and women in WWI have ended. At the Bailey Center display and outreach, we veterans have an opportunity to keep the history of World War II, and the succeeding wars, alive in two separate and important ways. First, those of us attending the functions have the opportunity to meet Jim Scollen. He is the leader the Florida unit of the Missing In America Project, and is also certified by The Library of Congress to audiotape and videotape the stories of veterans of all wars in which American servicemen and women have participated. The Library of Congress considers the stories of E-1s through O-10s to be extremely important for Americas living history, and therefore has established the program and trained people to get those very important historic stories. The newest group to be established is located in Collier County, and Scollen is starting the group here in Lee County so our local veterans dont have to drive down to Naples to have their wartime experiences documented. Veterans, become a part of living American history! See Jim Scollen at Baileys Center, get information on how you can participate, and share your service with the nation through The Library of Congress right here in Lee County. The second way that tri-county veterans can document history is to share your memorabilia with the people of Southwest Florida. The Military Museum of Naples will be displaying some of its donated and loaned collection with us at the Baileys Center event. The museum is a chartered 501(c)3 charitable organization which will accept the loan of your military memorabilia for display in their facility in the Naples Airport terminal. They will also accept donations of memorabilia, should that be your wish. These items, from Southwest Floridians, will help to bring to life the sacrifices and services of people in our area who have served their country in many ways. Items from former members of the seven armed services as well as the Merchant Marine, the Red Cross and other units serving the men and women, will be gratefully accepted and cared for with honor and pride. Please see Bob McDonald, and Greg Garcia, directors of the Military Museum, at Baileys and ask how you can help document the service of Southwest Floridians. They will be glad to assist you. Remember to bring your cameras and enjoy all the drama and fun. See you on November 12!

The production for this event will focus on an afternoon of fun for two tourists during their first visit to the island. These visitors will encounter four island VIPs who helped form the patchwork that would become the tapestry that makes Sanibel what it is today. Told from a humorous perspective, the audience will learn more about our paradise. In keeping with this theme, over the next several months leading up to this event, the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village will run a series of newspaper articles focusing on other VIPs who also contributed to the tapestry that is Sanibel. In this way, islanders will learn what it was like to live on Sanibel when swatting mosquitoes was a full-time job. Our first island icon is Francis Bailey, son of Frank Bailey and Annie Mead Matthews. Frank Bailey came to Sanibel in 1896 to farm and soon became a merchant and the all-around go to man for everything from notary services to police problems. He had three sons Francis, John and Sam and it was Francis who took up the reins of the Sanibel Packing Company, known as Baileys General Store.

7 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 2012The thing about farmers is the first born is usually born at home and the later children are born at hospitals. It was exactly the opposite in my family, Francis said. My brother Sam always claimed my brother and I were not true island natives because we were born in Fort Myers in Lee Memorial Hospital when it was an old wooden hospital on Victoria Street. Francis is the oldest son, born April 25, 1921; John was born October 9, 1922; and Sam was born January 29, 1924. The reason Sam was born at home was because his father was dissatisfied with the treatment his wife received at Lee Memorial. When Frank arrived in 1896 with his brothers Harry and Ernest, according to Francis, Sanibel all of Lee County was a real frontier in the sense that it was just being settled. People carried guns and occasionally would have a friendly argument where they split each others heads open. It was a rough cowboy county. It wasnt as bad on Sanibel because there were a lot fewer people and a lot of them had church affiliations. There was law, but it was more like out in the west. Francis Uncle Harry moved from Sanibel to Fort Myers early on, but Uncle Ernest lived with the family for the rest of his life. My uncles were both talented in many ways, even though some claimed Ernest was allergic to work, Francis said. Uncle Harry, who was six years older than Uncle Ernest, was a stenographer and took shorthand. Sam said all the women liked Uncle Ernest, although he never went out on a date in all the time I knew him. As the Bailey boys grew, their interests took them away from Sanibel: Sam to Tampa to play and later coach football, and John to Central and Northern Florida to ranch. Daddy could see that I got interested in the store, fixing it up and working hard, Francis said. We wanted the business to continue. About all Uncle Ernest did by this time was get in the way. We spent a lot of time laughing about his exploits. He had a lot of quirks and left us with a lot of good stories and memories. I remember people asking daddy, Whats Ernest doing these days? and daddy would answer, Hes not doing anything, hes writing. Want to know what hes writing? Hes writing me a letter asking for money. Read more about Francis Bailey and his life and times on Sanibel next week and in his upcoming memoir, My 91 Years On Sanibel: Memories Of My Island And My Family, due out soon. In the early 1950s, Francis became a grocer, with much success IS Island Graphics of Sanibel LLC, 2011 Show your colors!This bumper sticker has a green color to emphasize that almost 70% of Sanibel is in conservation land and a whimsical heart to signify our island lifestyle.

The server race at last years Taste of the Islands Signature dishes will be served Theological StudyOne of the most enduring ideas over the centuries has been the concept of eternal punishment. Various religious traditions have posited the notion that in an afterlife, there is a place or a state of being focused around punishment. In the Christian tradition, this has been most frequently referred to as hell. The Rev. Dr. John H. Danner, Senior Pastor at the Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ, will offer a two-week course, The History of Hell, exploring the theological and historical development of this concept in Christianity. He will trace its biblical roots and then examine how the doctrine evolved during the early and medieval period of church history. He will culminate his presentation in a review of some of the current thinking around the issue. The course is free and open to the public. It will be held Wednesdays, November 7 and 14, with identical sessions being offered at both 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. The class will be held in the churchs Fellowship Hall. Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ is located at 2050 Periwinkle Way on Sanibel. For further information, call the church office at 472-0497. For directions, visit www.sanibelucc.org.

Sanibel Community Church volunteers during a food packaging project Socks For Seniors Socks For Seniors is an annual community service project through which organizers collect new socks to be distributed to elderly in local area nursing homes around the holidays. The program is looking for local area coordinators near Sanibel to help with collecting socks this year. Specifically, volunteers are needed to host a sock drive. It all starts with one person, one box and one location. Organizers will help connect volunteers with a local senior community for distributing the socks at the end of the sock drive. If you have a nursing home, assisted living center or other senior community in mind for distribution, that will work too. If you can decorate a box and find a location or locations for boxes, thats all there is to it. Together, we can promote the sock drive. To collect Socks For Seniors, sign up online at www.socksforseniors.com/ register.html. Organizers will stay in touch with you during the campaign with updates and answering any questions you may have. You will also receive an email with signs and logos for the drive and other information. 1975-2019 periwinkle wayShopOnSanibel.com Something for Everyone Tahitian Gardens Breakfast & Lunch 7am 2:30pm Kids MenuIsland Style Home Cookin' in Our Open Air KitchenMaking Memories Since 1984 Family Owned & Operated Enjoy Dining At Our Handmade Shadowbox Fossil Seashell TablesNo reservations 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.472-5323 472-4300 472-4300 Open 8am Daily Open 8am Daily New New Ownership!

15 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 2012 Marker Dedicated At Former School For Colored Childrenby Jeff LysiakA historic marker noting the site of The Sanibel School for Colored Children, a structure currently occupied by Lily & Company Jewelry Gallery, was unveiled last week at the building located at the corner of Tarpon Bay and Island Inn roads. Attending the dedication ceremony on October 24 was Sanibel City Council member Marty Harrity, Eugene and Ron Gavin, Yvonne Hill, Alex Werner of the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village, and Dan Schuyler, co-owner of Lily & Company. Built as a Baptist Church in the early 1900s by James Johnson, the building was offered to African-American families living on the island for use as a school in 1927. In 1929, the Lee County School Board of Instructional Supervisors purchased the structure from the Florida Baptist Congregation for $1,500. The School for Colored Children on Sanibel as it was listed on the deed operated until the 1950s, or as long as there was a minimum of seven children attending grades 1 through 8. I remember walking to school from the Gable House (on West Gulf Drive), up Island Inn Road, said Eugene Gavin, who attended the school between 1947 and 1950. Lossie Pearson was our school teacher. We went to school from 9 to 4 after school, we had to go to work. Sometimes, we would get to leave early. We would go to the beach and collect shells. Then, wed sell them to the Shell Factory in North Fort Myers. The building once served as a private residence for the Carter family as well as Pearson. It was eventually sold by the school board in 1962. Two years later, the Sanibel Elementary School on SanibelCaptiva Road voluntarily became the first school in Lee County to be integrated. The historic marker includes two photographs: a portrait of Isaac J. Johnson, the brother-in-law of Harry Walker Sr., who sharecropped on Sanibel in the 1920s, plus a vintage image of the building in its original state. Inside the structure, Gavin pointed out where his classroom once occupied the majority of the space. In one corner, he recalled a closet where the books although very few were kept. In another, a small stage where he and his classmates would perform skits. We would do a Thanksgiving play and a Christmas play, he said. And the community would always come here to see us. The school was always filled when we did our plays. Werner explained that the idea to add a historic marker at the site originated about four years ago, and had been supported by many longtime island residents, including the late Sam Bailey. This is an outstanding collaborative project between Lily & Company, the citys Historical Preservation Committee, the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village and the Gavin family, said Werner. Hopefully, this will awaken a greater awareness of African-American history, and the contributions of those families, here on Sanibel Island. Schuyler also stated that he was extremely proud to operate a business in such a historic structure. When we bought the building, we knew it was important not just to research its roots, but to keep the original historic quality of this structure, he said. Knowing that the building had been a church and a school means a lot to us. Theres a lot of positive energy here, and we are so grateful for that.

16 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 2012 Sanibel Community Church Members Volunteer At Special Needs CampTwenty-one adults with disabilities made lifelong friends during the inaugural session of Trailways Camp in LaBelle, including a dozen volunteers from the Sanibel Community Church. The Trailways Camp is a partnership between Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida and The Robert V. and Benjamin G. Miller Fund. The session, which ran from October 22 to 25, included fishing, campfire roasts, a visit by Special Equestrians, swimming, a talent show, a Halloween party and more. The four-day camp was held at the Riverside Retreat Center in LaBelle. The Trailways Camp mission is to remove the social isolation often felt by people with disabilities by providing opportunities for fun, friends and support. Volunteers helped to facilitate outdoor activities, group exercises, crafts and more in order for campers to have the opportunity to develop recreational skills and build relationships. Our volunteers really made it all possible, with warmth and love and commitment, said camp coordinator Todd Ryan, Goodwills Director of Career Development Services. The distance that they were willing to travel really showed their dedication to making the camp special for our participants. In addition to Sanibel Community Church members, Senator Lizbeth Benacquisto (R-27) and several of her staff members also stopped by to volunteer. They assisted campers on a hayride, served lunch and helped participants paint pumpkins during a Halloween arts and crafts project. I dont believe there was a moment when a camper wasnt smiling, said Benacquisto. I applaud Goodwill for their diverse programs and their ability to enrich so many lives.

17 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 2012 Sanibel-Captiva Lions Club NewsSan-Cap Lions Help Build A New Canine Eye Clinicsubmitted by Lion Tom PriceThe soldier waits at the end of a long hallway. His partner carefully moves forward, scanning for anything that could be a threat. He reaches the end, looks both ways down the intersecting hall, and waits. Confident that the coast is clear, he turns to his partner, looks straight at him, and wags his tail. No, this scene is not from someplace in Afghanistan. It is in a training session at Southeastern Guide dogs in Palmetto, Florida. The soldier suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and is in training with his new canine partner. The dog is a Veteran Assistance Dog, trained by Southeastern Guide Dogs, and available to the soldier under the Paws For Patriots program. The soldier will stay at Southeastern for up to four weeks for intensive training with his new canine partner, before returning home together to face the obstacles caused by PTSD. Southeastern Guide Dogs trains dogs for duties ranging from guide dogs for the sight-impaired to Veteran Assistance Dogs, to Therapy Dogs. Based in Palmetto, Southeastern is 100 percent donation funded, and has the very highest rating possible by Charity Navigator, the worlds largest charity rating service. Because of the good work the Guide Dogs organization is doing for the visionimpaired and for veterans, the San-Cap Lions Club has, for many years, been directing some of the clubs fund-raising activities to their support. We were very pleased to be able to donate specifically in 2011 to help fund an onsite canine eye clinic. This clinic allows Southeastern to screen dogs for their breeding program, and to treat dogs with eye issues so that they can be trained to serve those in need. Several club members attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the clinic, and were very impressed with both the equipment we helped to purchase, and the professionalism of the staff and volunteers at Southeastern. We are very proud to be able to assist them in their noble effort, and wish to thank the many people who made this possible through donations and support. Today, the Sanibel Captiva Lions Club continues to support Southeastern Guide Dogs, as well as many other organizations that work to provide assistance to those in need. Visit Southeastern Guide Dogs online at www.guidedogs.org. You can also find out more about our Lions Club at www. sanibelcaptivalions.org. We serve.

19 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 2012 CROW Case Of The Week: Sanderlingby Patricia MolloySanderlings (Calidris alba) are the comedians of our local shorebirds. The small, light-colored sandpipers are the quintessential surf-dodger, most recognized for their behavior of running down to the waters edge with an outgoing wave and racing back up the beach to avoid the next incoming wave. CROW recently admitted a sanderling that was rescued because it was unable to stand or blink. It was quickly diagnosed with Brevetoxin. The condition is commonly contracted by shorebirds after scavenging beached fish that have died from toxic levels of exposure to red tide. Red tide is an ancient, natural phenomenon caused by tiny, single celled algae called Gymnodinium breve. While red tide causes little more than respiratory and eye discomfort for most humans, its has a more serious effect on marine wildlife. Exposure to the algal bloom can be dangerous, even fatal, to fish, sea turtles and birds. The sanderling that the clinic is currently treating was quickly assessed for liver and kidney damage, as the toxin is fat soluble. During the early stages of care, it required daily tube feeding and the administration of a liver detox with milk thistle to stimulate the liver into filtering out the toxins. As evidenced by the photos, it can now stand and shows signs of a full recovery. It has become a voracious eater of worms, which it most enjoys in a bathtub containing a small amount of water. CROW hopes to release patient #2992 back to its home soon, as the clinic is well on its way to completing yet another successful rehabilitation. CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Inc.) is a non-profit wildlife hospital providing veterinary care for native and migratory wildlife from our local area. The hospital accepts patients seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mail donations to PO Box 150, Sanibel, FL 33957. Call 472-3644 or visit: www.crowclinic.org.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 201220 Hiding From The Windby Capt. Matt MitchellMost of this week on the water involved fishing though some crazy strong generally north winds as Hurricane Sandy moved offshore up the east coast of the state. Once our winds finally let up, we went right into a winter cold front, bringing the coolest temperatures we have seen in at least six months. So basically put, I was already fishing the hide from the wind winter pattern before our first winter cold front hit. November in Southwest Florida is usually the big transition month for our fishing. Depending on how many cold fronts we have, it can either be awesome action with many fishing options or it can be more of the same hiding from the wind with less options to bend a rod. It seems to me when we have a strong cold front so early in the season like this one in late October, it opens up the gates for a cold front to push through our area every week to 10 days for months to come and can often be a early sign of a colder than normal winter. Despite what appears to be the start of a early winter, there are some things I really like about the month of November. The fact that the clocks finally fall back giving us more light first thing in a morning is a long awaited event. After weeks of darkness until 7 a.m., it will be a much welcomed change from scrambling to catch bait before picking up clients at 8 a.m. and make my mornings a whole lot easier. My most favorite date of the year continues to be November 15, the date that the slow speed manatee zones are over for Pine Island Sound. With the zones coming to a end, it simply opens up a lot more water to fish. Not only does it mean burning less fuel to get to where you want to fish, it also means hiding from the winds of winter and staying comfortable is going to be much easier. Live shiner and shrimp fishing was the staple for me this week. With conditions so windy and rough, catching shiners some mornings was a little hit or miss, so a 100 or so having a 100 live shrimp is more of a security blanket than anything else. Bouncing the bottom with a 1/4-ounce jig head and live shrimp caught a great mix bag of fish even during the toughest conditions. Chumming live shiners also had fish fired up throughout the southern sound this week. Deeper mangrove creeks and sheltered small bays close to home made up the majority of my targeted areas this week. Finding somewhere halfway comfortable to hide from the strong winds without having to cross any big open bodies of water was half the battle on most trips. Shorelines that had wind and tide moving in the same direction where what I looked for. During low tides, I spent my time in deeper sheltered channels. Then when the tide was up, I worked shorelines. Hot spots this week included Chino Island Channel, Flamingo Bay Channel, St. James Creek and Demere Key. Until this week, it has been a long time since I fished with live shrimp. Although you have to deal with catching lots of small fish and having lots of bait stolen, its amazing at the variety of species you catch. When conditions get tough for non-stop action, its hard to beat a live shrimp for bait. Capt. Matt Mitchell has been fishing local waters since he moved to Sanibel in 1980. He now lives in St. James City and works as a back country fishing guide. If you have comments or questions email firstname.lastname@example.org.

City Of Sanibel Improves Accessibility To Fishing Pier In response to persons who use wheelchairs and scooters for accessibility, the City of Sanibel recently installed a handicap accessible surface to traverse the transition area between the shell parking lot and the ramp at the City of Sanibels Fishing Pier. The materials were purchased with Tourism Development Council funds from Mobimat for $4,169.00. The materials were installed by the City of Sanibel Department of Public Works. Upon completion of the project Sanibel City Manager Judie Zimomra stated We always appreciate and welcome the input of our citizens and visitors on all issues, including how we can continue to provide accessibility to Sanibels natural resources and municipal facilities. We are pleased that everyone can now gain easy access to our Pier. The City of Sanibel also provides residents and visitors free use of large tire beach wheelchairs which are delivered to the park or rental unit of the user. The cost of the beach wheelchairs as well as the delivery to the users is totally underwritten by Billy Kirkland of Billys Rentals. Requests for the wheelchair are processed through the City of Sanibel Police Department 239-472-3111. The Sanibel Fishing Pier is located at Lighthouse Beach Park.

But be careful you dont lose patience with those who are still not ready to act. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Pushing others too hard to do things your way could cause resentment and raise more doubts. Instead, take more time to explain why your methods will work. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Be more considerate of those close to you before making a decision that could have a serious effect on their lives. Explain your intentions and ask for their advice. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might have to defend a workplace decision you plan to make. Colleagues might back you up on this, but its the facts that will ultimately win the day for you. Good luck. LEO (July 23 to August 22) The Big Cats co-workers might not be doing enough to help get that project finished. Your roars might stir things up, but gentle purrr-suasion will prove to be more effective. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Someone you care for needs help with a problem. Give it lovingly and without judging the situation. Whatever you feel you should know will be revealed later. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) While youre to be admired for how you handled recent workplace problems, be careful not to react the same way to a new situation until all the facts are in. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Rely on your keen instincts as well as the facts at hand when dealing with a troubling situation. Be patient. Take things one step at a time as you work through it. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Your curiosity leads you to ask questions. However, the answers might not be what you hoped to hear. Dont reject them without checking them out. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Be careful not to tackle a problem without sufficient facts. Even sure-footed Goats need to know where theyll land before leaping off a mountain path. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Appearances can be deceiving. You need to do more investigating before investing your time, let alone your money, in something that might have some hidden flaws. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Your recent stand on an issue could make you the focus of more attention than you would like. But youll regain your privacy, as well as more time with loved ones by weeks end. BORN THIS WEEK: Youre a good friend and a trusted confidante. You would be a wonderful teacher or a respected member of the clergy. On Nov. 7, 1776, Congress chooses Richard Bache to succeed his father-in-law, Benjamin Franklin, as postmaster general. Franklin invested nearly 40 years in the establishment of a reliable system of delivering mail. He was fired in 1774 for opening and publishing Massachusetts Royal Governor Thomas Hutchinsons correspondence. On Nov. 5, 1895, Rochester, N.Y., patent attorney George Selden wins U.S. Patent No. 549,160 for an improved road engine powered by a liquid-hydrocarbon engine of the compression type. With that, as far as the government was concerned, George Selden had invented the car -though he had never built a single one. On Nov. 10, 1928, the first installment of All Quiet on the Western Front, Erich Maria Remarques acclaimed novel of World War I, is first published in serial form. Remarques realistic depiction of trench warfare from the perspective of young soldiers was eventually translated into more than 20 languages. On Nov. 11, 1942, Congress approves lowering the draft age to 18 and raising the upper limit to age 37, increasing the number of draftees. During the first draft in 1940, 50 percent were rejected for health reasons and 20 percent of those who registered were illiterate. On Nov. 8, 1951, Yankees catcher Yogi Berra is voted the American Leagues most valuable player for the first time in his career. He went on to be the league MVP twice more, in 1954 and 1955. On Nov. 9, 1965, the biggest power failure in U.S. history occurs as all of New York state, and parts of seven neighboring states and eastern Canada are plunged into darkness. The blackout during the evening rush hour trapped 800,000 people in New Yorks subways and stranded thousands more in office buildings and elevators. On Nov. 6, 1977, the earthen Toccoa Falls Dam in northeastern Georgia gives way, and 39 people die in the resulting flood. A volunteer fireman had inspected the dam and found everything in order just hours before it suddenly failed, sending water approaching speeds of 120 mph thundering down the canyon and creek. In this season of bitter partisan rivalries, it would be well to remember the following sage observation: Do not trust to the cheering, for those persons would cheer just as much if you and I were going to be hanged. The man who first made that observation was Lord Protector of England Oliver Cromwell, considered by some to be a hero of liberty, by others to be a regicidal dictator. He died in 1658, probably from septicemia. He was so reviled that, three years later, he body was exhumed so that he could be posthumously executed, his body thrown into a pit and his head displayed on a pole outside Westminster Hall. Those who study such things say that if all the gold in the world were combined in one lump, it would result in a cube that measures 20 yards on each side. If youre planning a trip to Lima, Peru, you might want to add Puente de Piedra to your sightseeing list. Though the Spanish name means Bridge of Stone, the span is popularly known as the Bridge of Eggs. Legend has it that in 1608, the builders the used the whites of 10,000 seabird eggs in the mortar that holds the stones together. Pumpkins are native to the Americas, not Europe. This is why the original jack-olantern was a turnip. What do the words obscene, tranquil, mediate, catastrophe, dire, critical, vast and apostrophe have in common? All of them appeared in print for the first time in the works of William Shakespeare. If youre contemplating a move to Corpus Christi, Texas, be sure to keep in mind that in that town, its illegal to raise alligators in your home. One fool can ask more questions in a minute than 12 wise men can answer in an hour. -Vladimir Lenin THIS WEEK IN HISTORY STRANGE BUT TRUE THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Plant SmartCommon Yellow Woodsorrelby Gerri ReavesCommon yellow woodsorrel (Oxalis corniculata) is a native perennial with clover-like leaves and tiny yellow flowers. Distributed throughout Florida, this mat-forming wildflower can grow to more than a half-foot in height. The oxalic acid in the plant gives it a sharp or pungent taste, thus another common name, sourgrass. In fact, the word oxalis derives from Latin and Greek words meaning sour or acid. The leaf shape and growth habit have earned the plant two other common names, Florida shamrock and creeping woodsorrel, respectively. The delicate heart-shaped leaflets fold at the center crease at night or when they are stressed by direct sunlight or a storm, for example. The five-petaled flowers bloom throughout the year, appearing in clusters on hairy stems. Symmetrical and funnelshaped, the flowers measure less than a half-inch across. Yellow woodsorrel spreads via underground stems called rhizomes. The seeds are dispersed by the exploding seed capsules and by songbirds. It prefers moist areas and crops up in open fields, woodlands, on roadsides, and in yards. Despite the oxalic acid and strong taste, the plant has many medicinal and culinary uses. It can be added to sauces and salads, for instance, or used as a diuretic or digestive aid. However, use it moderately, for the oxalic acid can cause serious kidney problems, among other concerns. This wildflower is very resistant to herbicides, so if it volunteers in your yard, why not live and let live? Enjoy those cheerful yellow flowers and shamrocks.

Charles LeBuff and George Campbell had started putting up osprey platforms on the island in 1974 and the next thing I knew, they had me coordinating that project with the Lee County Electric Cooperative (LCEC). In those days, we would erect seven or eight platforms per year before the nesting season started up at the end of December. As I got more involved with the osprey project, I began to wonder if all this effort was really doing any good. Were the platforms helping the ospreys or were they merely getting the birds to nest away from places we didnt want them (like on LCECs utility poles)? So on December 1, 1978 (basically, the 1979 nesting season), I started monitoring the ospreys on Sanibel Island. That first year, I found 35 occupied territories on the island. By 1981, it became obvious that ospreys were going to become one of my major interests, so I started The International Osprey Foundation (TIOF). Today, over 30 years later, that population has grown to more than 100 pairs and their productivity is tabulated every year by a group of about 40 TIOF volunteers. A lot of that increase can be attributed to the platform program. What the monitoring has been able to verify is that the artificial nesting platforms fledge twice as many chicks as the natural sites. Some obvious answers for this increased success rate at the artificial sites includes they are more stable, less likely to blow down in a storm and they are easier to protect from raccoon predation by attaching metal predator guards to the poles. But I have also always believed that the ospreys themselves recognize that these artificial sites are more suitable places to build their nests. I think the most fit pairs the ones who are the strongest, the best hunters, the most likely to be successful no matter where they nest are the ones who consistently are able to maintain territories at the artificial nests. During the first 10 years of the monitoring program, the monitoring was very intensive. I started out doing the work by myself, but after I fell about 30 feet out of a black mangrove and had to crawl almost a quarter mile through the mangroves to get back to my canoe, I recruited an assistant, and later, a whole team of volunteers to help me. I used to joke with my first assistant that his primary purpose was to help the authorities locate the body when I fell out of the next tree. We went to every nest on the island, once every two to three weeks and actually went up into the nest to count eggs and, eventually, the number of chicks. As the chicks became old enough, we banded them. Over that 10-year intensive study, we banded approximately 350 osprey chicks. Now sometimes, someone will say, Oh, Bird. The ospreys must love you! Youve done so much to help bring their population back from the brink of extinction! And I have to smile as I say, Youve got to be kidding! If there is one person on this island that ospreys dont like, that person is me! Im the jerk who kept on going into their nests every two to three weeks and harassed their babies and put little metal bands on their legs. I can remember going to the end of Dixie Beach years ago, where there was a little park-like area with a picnic table, a parking lot and an osprey platform in the middle. People would be in the parking lot and sitting at the picnic table and the ospreys would be feeding their young, paying no attention to the people below. Then, I would show up and get out of my car and the ospreys would get all upset, flying around and giving the alarm call. Dont tell me they didnt recognize who I was and understand what I was about to do! So I was always attacked when I went up to the nests. The closer one gets to the actual nest, the more intense the attacks become. Early monitoring of the eggs was dangerous, but not as bad as later. I used a 35-foot extension ladder that would get me up close to the nest and then I could use a mirror attached to an extendable pole that was used to look into the nest from below with the least amount of threat to me. When you heard the wind blowing over the wings of the osprey as it dived down at you, you knew that you better duck your head because the bird was only a few feet from you, hurtling towards you at about 40 to 50 miles an hour! But the real danger came when it was time for banding. I had to actually go all the way up into the nest, collect a chick and bring it back down for banding and measurement-taking, and then return the chick to the nest. Thats when the birds really hated my guts! I was hit four times over the years... and once had to get stitches! Next week, I will explain how being able to speak osprey not only helped protect my scalp from being placed on some angry ospreys lodge pole, but also in protecting the ospreys themselves.

27 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 2012Power Squadron Announces Boating ClassesWant to learn the basics of boating the local waters? Or, how about celestial navigation for the experienced offshore boater? This season, the Sanibel-Captiva Sail & Power Squadron will offer classes for boaters of every experience level. In announcing the seasons education program, Jack Purse (Squadron Educational Officer) said, This years education offering will provide enjoyable learning experiences for all. We have classes for the novice and those considering boating as a possible new recreational interest. We have classes that teach basic seamanship all the way to advanced navigation as well as everything in between. This years class schedule will be our most comprehensive ever. All the classes will be taught at convenient Sanibel locations and are available to everyone in the metro Fort Myers area. For a complete listing of classes, dates, costs and course descriptions call 239-233-7380 or visit the squadron website at http://www.usps.org/localusps/ sancap/education.shtml. Americas Boating Course is the ideal place to begin, said Jay Brown, the class lead instructor. We teach this class with an emphasis on safely boating the local waters. Although this class is designed for the novice (even those with no prior boating experience), experienced boaters find much value in reviewing the fundamentals of safe boating and Floridas safety laws. The class is taught in a oneday seminar format on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Students prepare in advance for the class by reading the Americas Boating Course class manual. Some of the important topics covered include required safety equipment, local boating laws, navigation rules and aids, VHF radio operation, knots, anchoring and basic piloting. Students who complete the course receive a certificate that satisfies boating education requirements in most states and may qualify the student for boat insurance discounts. Americas Boating Course will be taught Saturday, December 1 at the Sanibel Library. Students must register for the class no later than November 21 by calling Charlene Timothy at 239-4720358 or by visiting the squadron website at http://www.usps.org/localusps/sancap/education.shtml. The class also will be offered on January 19, February 9, and March 23. Seamanship is the first core course in the US Power Squadron education curriculum. This in depth class teaches boat design and terminology, docking, operating in various wind and current conditions, anchoring, marlinspike (lines and knots) and the other important skills necessary to boat confidently in local waters. Seamanship is the foundation course for more advanced courses such as Piloting, Advanced Piloting and Navigation. Seamanship is taught over several class days with the first class scheduled to begin January 10. Although not required for enrollment some students first may want to attend Americas Boating Course prior to beginning Seamanship. To register for Seamanship visit the squadron website at http://www.usps.org/ localusps/sancap/education.shtml. Other in depth courses that will be taught this year include Piloting, Navigation, Engine Maintenance, Marine Electronics, Cruise Planning and Weather. In addition to the full course curriculum, several half-day seminars devoted to specific topics of interest will be offered. These half-day seminars are open to the public and require no educational prerequisites. Half-day seminars include Marine Charts, Radar, Vhf Radio, GPS, Weather Forecasting and several others. Nationally, the US Power Squadron has approximately 40,000 members and the local Sanibel-Captiva squadron numbers about 300. The Power Squadron has a wonderful education program. However, we are so much more than an educational organization, stressed Sami Lucas, Commander of the Sanibel/ Captiva squadron. We are also a civic and a fraternal organization. There is much we do to fulfill our civic obligation to promote safe boating and we provide many social opportunities for boaters and those who might want to become boaters. If you want to learn more about the US Power Squadron, visit http://www. usps.org/localusps/sancap/# or consider enrolling in Americas Boating Course by November 21 for the class to be taught on Saturday, December 1.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 201228 Helping Paws Seeks Donations For Wish Listby Jeff LysiakHelping Paws Animal Sanctuary, which recently celebrated their second anniversary as a true nokill, cage-free cat shelter, is appealing to Southwest Florida residents and visitors to donate items currently on their wish list. Marnie Miszewski, executive director of the 501(c)3 shelter, explained that she founded Helping Paws to provide a home for cats and kittens, many of whom are described as unadoptable. They include felines who are sick, elderly or have special needs. After I was laid-off in 2009, I was trying to decide what I wanted to do with my life, said Miszewski. In retrospect, if I knew what I was going to be getting into, I might have chickened out. But it has been such a rewarding journey. Located in St. James City, the facility includes two units inhabited by approximately 150 cats one building with six rooms, an office and an attic; the other building features a sick room, an area for cats being boarded and a suite for cats with Feline Leukemia. According to Miszewski, the Feline Leukemia (FELV)-positive cats are kept in a separate suite and receive nutritional food and daily supplements. One of the current FELV residents, a black kitten named Trixi, is missing a foot as a result of being hung last Halloween. We also try to educate the public on FIV, or Feline AIDS, said Miszewski. FIV is often misunderstood and has a lot of stigma attached. We have successfully placed quite a few FIV cats into loving homes. At Helping Paws, the cats roam continued on page 43 Residents of Helping Paws Animal Sanctuary have plenty of space to roam around Marnie Miszewski Trixi, the FELV-positive cat who lost a foot after being hung as a kitten Helping Paws residents taking a cat nap Corner of Periwinkle & Tarpon Bay Road in the Baileys Plaza GEORGE & WENDYS SEAFOOD GRILLE Lunch, Dinner & Late Night Menu Only All Day Happy Hour on the Island Outdoor Seating Sunday Brunch Back for Season Starting Nov. 4 Dont Miss it!!

Were delighted to have brought this event to Southwest Florida as it brings our local community to meet Downs individuals up close and personal. Participants and sponsors for the walk are now being accepted. Individual walkers registration fee are $20 for adults, $10 for children ages 5 to 13 and $100 for family sponsorships. Corporate sponsorships range from $250 to $500. Registrations will also be accepted on the day of the Walk. All registration fees include a T-shirt, post-walk barbecue lunch with live entertainment by Sanibels Danny Morgan, bounce houses and activities for the kids. According to Hayduk, proceeds will benefit The National Down Syndrome Society. In addition, funds raised will benefit the nonprofit Sanibel Sea School that provides placement for Downs children in their nationally-recognized summer camp. And for the second year, the kids will present a check to SanCap Cares and the Lee Memorial Hospital System for the construction of the pediatric emergency room. The NDSS has shown repeatedly over the past 20 years that through awareness, legislation, and inclusionary practices that the level of independence for those with Downs is limitless, he said. But as weve learned from Jamison and those who she touches, Downs individuals are constant reminders of true kindness and unconditional love. Downs kids are born givers and I can tell you they will be pleased to know they contributed to help other children in need, Hayduk added. Jamison sees life in a manner that would benefit us all if we did the same. Even at the early age of 7, she sees only the good in others and shell sense when youre sad and is driven to make you smile.

32 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 2012 Beckys New Car Cruises Into Herb Strauss TheaterBIG ARTS Herb Strauss Theater, the only professional theater on Sanibel, drives in the 201213 live theater season with Theatre Conspiracys production of Beckys New Car, running November 13 to 20. The season includes Miriam Margolyes in Dickens Women (December 4 to 9), Forever Plaid: Plaid Tidings (December 17 to 31), Monty Pythons Spamalot (January 11 to February 16), The Marvelous Wonderettes (February 22 to March 23), Charles Lindbergh: The Lone Eagle (February 24 to March 10), and Fully Committed (March 29 to April 27). Theatre Conspiracys 2011 production of Beckys New Car crosses the causeway from Fort Myers and drives into BIG ARTS Herb Strauss Theater for an eight-night encore run. Laced with adult humor, playwright Steven Dietz spins a touching tale about the detours people make on the road to happiness. Beckys New Car is the story of an everyday person a married, middle-aged mom. Becky isnt exactly unhappy, but from her desk at a car dealership, she cant help wanting to know what else is out there. Intrigued by the excitement and glamour of a wealthy mans attention, Becky goes along for the ride on a journey of comic twists and turns as she test-drives a new life. Beckys New Car has a unique backstory of how the play was brought to life. Seattle realtor Charles Staadecker met a woman who had commissioned a tuba concerto from the Seattle Symphony in memory of her husband. Staadecker was looking for a major gift to give his theater-loving wife Benita for her 60th birthday, so he brought the idea to A Contemporary Theatre (ACT) where Benita Staadecker was a Trustee. ACT worked with award-winning playwright Steven Dietz to create the play, which premiered at ACT in 2008. Dietz said he was inspired by the idea of a regular person having a double life. The Staadeckers were thrilled with the result of their commission, (they placed no restrictions on Dietz in his writing), and went on to travel with the show, speaking to audiences to encourage people to support the arts. In 2009, Beckys New Car was one of six finalists for the prestigious Steinberg New Play Award given by the American Theatre Critics Association. Lauren Drexler reprises her role as Becky Foster in Theatre Conspiracys production of Beckys New Car, with the role of Beckys husband now being played by Scott Carpenter. Scott Thompson, Jordan Wilson, Martin Hastings and Nancy Antonio return to the cast, with the role of the Fosters daughter now being played by Brittany Albury. Performances of Beckys New Car are 8 p.m. on November 13 to 17, 19 and 20, and a 4 p.m. matine on November 18. Tickets are $28, child 17 and under are $15.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 201236 Donate Bears And Brighten A Childs ChristmasChristmas trees abound during the holiday season, but one Southwest Florida tree has become a holiday tradition. Imagine a magnificent nine-foot tree with 200 cuddly teddy bears covering every inch it, then imagine the joy on the faces at The Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida when that tree is delivered. Goodwills Very Beary Christmas tree has been a staple of Goodwills annual Festival of Trees since the events inception in 2006. Made up from bears donated by the community, the tree is one of 25 beautifully decorated trees that will be auctioned off at the festivals signature event, the Tux & Trees Gala, on December 1. Auction guests gather around this special tree to raise money for The Southwest Florida Goodwill Foundation. The tree is then traditionally donated to a childrens hospital, where it will brighten the holidays of families who spend the season at the hospital. All of our trees are special, said Madison Mitchell, spokesperson at Goodwill. However, there is something so heart-warming about this tree. Seeing the tree donated to such a wonderful home really evokes the true spirit of Christmas. Goodwill is enlisting the communitys help in collecting bears for this years Very Beary Christmas. Several businesses are hosting teddy bear donation drives to support the cause: First Bank Moore Haven Branch Tortoise & Hair Salon Fort Myers ArtFest Fort Myers Costco Cypress Lake Drive, Fort Myers Hotel Indigo Fort Myers Imaginarium Science Center Fort Myers Riverside Reality Group Fort Myers Hogbodys North Fort Myers FGCU Estero Fred Astaire Dance Studio Fort Myers If you are interested in hosting a teddy bear drive, or have new bears that you would like to donate, contact Natalie Tursi at 995-2106 ext. 2249 or email email@example.com.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 201238 BIG ARTS Opera And Ballet LineupBIG ARTS opens its 2012-13 Opera & Ballet In Cinema season on Thursday, November 15 with a screening of Nederlands Dans Theaters Move To Move. The season continues December 14 with the opera Peter Grimes and Norma (January 10), Carmen (February 27), Don Quixote (March 27), and The Rite of Spring (April 11). All screenings are 7 p.m. at BIG ARTS Schein Performance Hall, 900 Dunlop Road on Sanibel. General admission is $20. BIG ARTS brings live and pre-recorded performances directly from the worlds most distinguished theaters and opera houses in hi-def via Emerging Cinemas, the largest all-digital theater network in the U.S. Nearly 100 arts institutions, media arts centers and independent art houses are connected through state-ofthe-art digital technology that enables venues to exhibit exclusive independent cinema, documentaries, arts programming and foreign language films. Dance lovers, take note, The Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT) comes to the big screen with Move To Move, an evening of four contemporary dance masterpieces: Left Right Left Right choreographed by Alexander Ekman; Secus by Ohad Naharin; and Sol Lon and Paul Lightfoots Silent Screen and Shine A Light. Dont miss this performance The Sunday Herald calls a retina-shredding spectacle of passion and power by the worlds most magnificent dancers. One of the leading contemporary dance companies in the world, the NDT was born in 1959 with a passion to develop the emerging world of modern dance. Benjamin Brittens Peter Grimes premiered in London in 1945. It is set in a drab fishing village on the east coast of England around 1830, and is described by Britten as the struggle of the individual against the masses. Peter Grimes is about a fisherman accused by his neighbors of committing unspeakable crimes, and how their actions ripple further and further. Brittens incredible score includes the Four Sea Interludes, instrumental music between scenes that perfectly express the mystery and pain at the heart of this opera. This production, captured live at La Scala in May 2012, stars John Graham-Hall, Susan Gritton, Christopher Purves and Felicity Palmer. Norma is considered Vincenzo Bellinis magnum opus, and the apex of the bel canto operatic style. The opera is the story of a high priestess forced to choose between duty and desire, due to her treasonous love for a Roman soldier. This production stars Chiara Taigi, Gregory Kunde, Irina Lungu and Bolshois Don Quixote with Natalia Osipova and Ivan Vasiliev, photo by M.

The next few centuries were flooded with pioneers, fishermen and clergymen in their quest to tame the wilderness in search of a better life. Discover how anthropologist Frank Cushing visited pioneer Sam Ellis in 1895 after the farmer discovered bones on his homestead and how President Theodore Roosevelts men saved a little girl from drowning when he lived on a houseboat in Captiva to study local marine life. Join local history columnist Jeri Magg as she recounts the storied history of these little slices of paradise. The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum lecture, the second of the series, will take place on Friday, November 9 from noon to 1 p.m. in the Museum Education Center. Entrance is complimentary with admission and free to museum members. Magg has been freelancing for over 20 years, writing for regional and local magazines and newspapers. She and her husband, Karl, moved from New York to Sanibel in 1980 with their two daughters, Carolyn and Kathy. With an avid interest in history, Jeri volunteered at the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village for more than 10 years and has authored numerous articles about the history of Sanibel and Captiva. Now, after 30 years of listening to innumerable tales, many told by the original pioneers or their descendants, she compiled these tales, along with a site map into a book so others may enjoy learning the islands history.

39 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 2012Giacomo Prestia. Flowing, lyrical melodies including the infamously difficult soprano aria Casta Diva heighten this sweeping drama. Carmen is an opera in four acts by Bizet, set in Seville, Spain, in the early 1800s. It tells the story of the downfall of Don Jos, a nave soldier seduced by the charms of Carmen, a young gypsy maiden. When Carmen abandons Jos for the toreador Escamillo, Jos seeks fatal revenge against Carmen for her treachery. Votre toast, je peux vous le rendre, the toreadors song from Act 2, is one of the best-known arias in the history of opera. Based on the epic masterpiece by Cervantes, Don Quixote is a ballet which follows the aged dons quest for the love of his dream woman, Dulcinea, whom he believes he has found in the earthly form of peasant girl Kitri. His plans clash, however, with Kitris fathers insistence that she marry a rich nobleman instead of her penniless lover, the barber Basilio. This stunning production from Moscows Bolshoi Ballet stars Natalia Osipova and Ivan Vasiliev. From the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow, The Rite of Spring is a ballet with music by Igor Stravinsky and choreography by Vaslay Nijinsky. With music by Igor Stravinsky, The Rite of Spring had its premiere in Paris in 1913, and has been entirely rechoreographed for the Bolshoi by Wayne McGregor for the hundredth anniversary of the works creation. Bolshoi Ballet artistic director Sergei Filin said, What makes this program unique is that it will feature four different versions of The Rite of Spring to music by Stravinsky. The Finnish National Ballet, the Bjart Ballet Lausanne, the Pina Bausch Dance Theatre and the Bolshoi will each perform their version of The Rite of Spring. In addition, the companies will present some pieces from their current repertoire. The Rite of Spring was popularized through Walt Disneys Fantasia in 1940, wherein it is the fourth piece in the films program, depicting the evolution of life on earth. Wagners Lohengrin opera will not be shown December 7, and La Bayadre ballet will not be shown on November 15, as was scheduled.

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 ex-banker now working in one of Mother Teresas charity wards; the people of Okinawa 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 Nighy, 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. Nominated for an Academy Award in 2012 for Best Foreign Language Film and winner of Best Screenplay at the Cannes Film Festival, Footnote is a tale about the strained relationship between a father and son who are rival academics in Talmudic studies. Trouble and jealousy ensue when a prestigious award intended for one of them is mistakenly bestowed upon the other. Lisa Schwarzbaums review in Entertainment Weekly raves, Funny and smart, Footnote is told with wild, inventive cinematic flourishes. Joseph cedar pulls off a feat of intellectual and cinematic elegance. The film for the final Monday of each month will be selected and announced one week prior to its screening. This way, BIG ARTS Film Society will be able to show films that are all the rage, like a nominee or award-winner from Cannes, The Golden Globes or Academy Awards. Before the film is selected, these film nights will be advertised as Surprise To Be Announced.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 201242 Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellThe amazing part of being a Rotarian is meeting and working with people all over our country and the world on projects that make significant contributions to the quality of life for many. Whether its traveling to Africa to be part of the Rotary polio immunization team, delivering wheelchairs to Belize, supplying cook stoves in Guatemala, bringing building supplies and food to Haiti, contributing funds for tents and shelter boxes to victims of hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis and floods in island nations and countries such as Haiti, Japan and Mexico or attending our Rotary International conventions in countries such as Taiwan. At our recent monthly club assembly, Sanibel-Captiva Rotarians John Grey and Chet Sadler reported back to the club regarding their trip to Haiti about a month ago. They traveled to Haiti to represent our club at a formal ribboncutting for a modern restroom facility built to service the 750 students and their 17 teachers at the Mary Austin School, Haute de St. Marc, Haiti funded by the Sanibel-Captiva Rotary and an anonymous donor with matching funds from both our Rotary District 6960 and Rotary International. The total cost of this project was $75,000. Sadler, San-Cap Rotarys TRF chair, had spent over three years working on this project for our club. The project had been placed in the Rotary pipeline just before the devastating 2010 earthquake in Haiti. Although the school itself was not affected by the earthquake, it was in poor condition. Before any construction could begin on the restroom facility, improving the condition of the school was the first priority. Raising money for repairs was done by both the Sanibel Community Church and Sanibel-Captiva Rotary. When it was feasible, Sadler moved forward with raising Rotary funding for the restroom project. Fort Myers architect Amy Nowacki contributed architectural drawings and Sanibel contractor Dan Budd worked on the design and planning. Sadler found that finding a reliable building contractor for the job was the most difficult task connected with this project. Finally, contractor Jacques Annilus was selected and construction began with the piping for running water, indoor plumbing, the building itself and auxiliary water storage. This modern facility houses separate areas for boys and girls and with toilets and wash basins; the teachers have a separate unit with toilets, wash basins and a shower. Just as a matter of note, previously indoor facilities were not available to students; their only restroom area was located out in a designated field. Sadler and Grey had an amazing visit in Haiti, hosted and escorted by our partnering St. Marcs Rotary 7020 Club. The duo certainly was treated as visiting dignitaries, with many speeches given in their honor (all in French, not a language that either of our Rotarians spoke. There was even a special song recorded just for them). The new building was more than impressive and will make a huge difference in the sanitation at the school. Before the students will be allowed to use the restrooms, they will be given instructions as to how to use the facility and how to keep it clean. The focus of many of our Rotary water projects is clean water and sanitation, both helping the prevention of disease. Haiti is still in need of so many things. Progress is slow, but Sadler who visited Haiti a short time after the earthquake saw some progress. Large tent cities are not visible now in Port Au Prince and street vendor shops line the major street of the city. There are still mountains of rotting debris and buildings in need of repair, but if Mother Nature could just give Haiti a break, this country and its people with a little help from their friends can begin to emerge as the beautiful place that it could be. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets at 7 a.m. every Friday at Bistro At Beachview, 1100 Par View Drive. For further information regarding the Sanibel Rotary or Rotary International, call 337-1099.

43 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 2012 Monday Night MovieHappyby Hyde TuckerHappy is a documentary film about happiness. It will be shown at 7 p.m. on Monday, November 5 in Schein Performance Hall at BIG ARTS, 900 Dunlap Road. It contains recent work by neuroscientist, psychologist and others about what makes us happy and what does not. It illustrates its findings by showing people in 14 places in the world. Some of the places are primitive and some fully developed. I found particularly interesting the description of communal living in Denmark. The films general position is that happiness is supported by physical activity, actions to benefit others, and closeness to family, friends and nature. Its other position is that happiness is diminished by obsessive pursuit of wealth, material goods, status and image. The film caused me to think quite a bit about the happiness of my friends, my children and myself. There are some things I should change. The people who made the film did a good job of presenting academic information in a way that is interesting and not boring or pedantic. The film is not rated. I do not think it contains offensive material. Happy runs for 78 minutes. The tickets are $8. There will be a short introduction before the film and an open discussion following the showing. For the complete listing of BIG ARTS films, to purchase tickets, or to become a member, call 395-0900, e-mail info@BIGARTS.org, or log on to www.BIGARTS.org. FWC Program Improving Boating AccessThe Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has announced the recipients for the 2012-13 Florida Boating Improvement Program (FBIP) grants. Twenty-seven different grants, totaling $5.2 million, will be awarded throughout the state. These grants for boat ramps will bring economic development opportunities across our state, said Governor Rick Scott. As the fishing capital of the world, Florida takes pride in the maintenance and quality of our boat ramps and facilities. They will provide a steady flow of tourism and recreation. In addition to patrolling Floridas woods and waters to protect people and natural resources, the FWCs Division of Law Enforcement manages boating access. We administer grant programs for boating access and boating-related activities, said Maj. Jack Daugherty, leader of the FWCs Boating and Waterways Section. The grants are awarded to eligible counties, municipalities and other state governmental entities to fund projects like boat ramp construction, channel marking and derelict vessel removal. Some of the areas selected, including Clewiston, Palatka and De Soto and Hamilton counties, have been designated Rural Areas of Critical Economic Concern by the governor. These areas have received substantial grants. Specific projects planned for those areas include expanding dock and ramp space, constructing and improving restroom facilities, renovating and expanding marinas, improving access roads and parking lots and constructing facilities compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Funds for these grants are derived largely from the federal Sport Fish Restoration Boat Access Program. Federal funds are collected when people buy fishing tackle and motor fuels, and from import duties on tackle and yachts. The money is returned to appropriate state agencies for research, management and development activities that deal with sport fish and boating access. Federal law requires 15 percent of these funds go to building and repairing boat ramps. More information about specific locations and plans for construction can be directed to the appropriate city or county government. For more information on the FBIP grant recipients, visit www.MyFWC.com/Boating and click on Boating Grant Programs. From page 28Helping Pawsthrough large rooms with TVs, kitty condos, places to perch and water fountains, along with plenty of toys to keep them active. It is staffed by a group of volunteers that are attentive to the cats comfort and needs. The shelter is also home to disabled and incontinent cats, but the majority of the residents are healthy and readily adoptable. We have taken in cats from Sanibel and adopted some out there, too, reported Miszewski. Right now, we have about 150 cats, and we have expanded so we have the capacity to take in more. But we dont have the funding to support taking in any more. Appealing to their neighboring islanders sense of compassion, Helping Paws wish list for donated items includes: Canned cat food Dry cat food (grain-free) Baby food (plain chicken and gravy or turkey and gravy) Scoopable litter Paw Points (from Fresh Step Litter) Flea control medicine (Comfortis) Treats and toys Paper towels Trash bags Disposable incontinence pads Lysol disinfecting wipes Nutri-Cal Laundry soap (regular and HE) and fabric softener Cat furniture and scratch items Baby blankets Goats milk Glass and metal bowls Televisions and DVD players Pill pockets In addition, Helping Paws is requesting donations of coupons that can be used to purchase any of the above items on their wish list, as well as gift certificates for retailers including Publix, Walmart, WinnDixie, PetSmart, Petco, Discount Pets, Pet Supermarket, etc. Ever grateful to those who make donations to Helping Paws, Miszewski suggests that she is always happy whenever any of her residents who she claims to know by name are adopted. Any day we adopt a cat out of our shelter, Im over the moon with happiness. Words cant express the joy I feel, she added. But there are also sad days when we lose one of them. And Im not one of those people who get jaded about things like that over the years I still grieve that loss. Thats me, thats my sense of compassion. And thats probably why I run the shelter the way that I do.

45 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 2012 Coile Donates His Latest Music CDMusician Chris Coile, a Sanibel resident and popular local entertainer, has just released his latest CD, A Special Elvis Tribute. The disc contains 17 of Elviss greatest hits, from Blue Suede Shoes to the American Trilogy. Coile has been performing all over the East Coast for many years, with an act featuring 1950s and 1960s rock and roll, country and classic standards. He donates the CDs, which are available at his twice monthly performances on Sanibel. The CDs are available for a $5 donation, with the entire $5 going to a local scholarship fund that Coile has set up with the Edison Community College. His first release, Looking Back, is also available. Coile plays and sings every other Tuesday at George & Wendys Sanibel Seafood Grille, located at the corner of Periwinkle Way and Tarpon Bay Road. The show which features the hundreds of songs he knows by heart starts at 6 p.m. and goes to 7:30 p.m. His season premier performance is Tuesday, November 6 (Election Day). Coiles objective is to raise a minimum of $2,000 this winter. Last year, he raised $1,000 which provided a special scholarship, awarded last spring to a local resident. Youths Can Join FWC Conservation Team, ContributeEven though young people are allowed to hunt and fish in Florida without having to buy a license until they turn 16 years old, a change in the license system now makes it possible for youngsters to voluntarily purchase their licenses early and start contributing today toward conservation. Youths under 16 years of age can now purchase their very first annual freshwater, saltwater or hunting license, which will remain valid until their 17th birthday, no matter how young they are when they buy it. All three types of licenses are $17. Youre never too young to start contributing to our great states hunting and fishing heritage and protecting our wild habitats and resources, said Richard Corbett, a commissioner with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). And this new ability to purchase a license creates a wonderful opportunity to do just that. Youths under 16 years of age will still have to complete the states hunter safety certification before taking advantage of this special license opportunity for hunting. The classes are free. Safety classes arent required for fishing licenses. Another opportunity for youths is the $100 Gold Sportsmans license, which authorizes the holder to take game and freshwater or saltwater fish and provides the deer, management area, archery season, muzzleloading season, crossbow season, turkey, waterfowl, snook and spiny lobster (crawfish) permit privileges. For every year that passes until a youth turns 17, the FWC will receive approximately $7 in matching federal funds, which will be used to preserve and manage the nearly 6 million acres of the states public-hunting, wildlife management area system and the states saltwater and freshwater fisheries.

Dolly Partons Talent Shines At Broadway Palmby Di SaggauMost theater goers remember the 1980 comedy movie, 9 To 5. It was a huge success. The musical based upon the movie, featuring songs by Dolly Parton, is now showing at Broadway Palm Dinner Theater. The musical follows the films script with a strong cast and choreography that is exceptional and moves everything with a brisk, tight pace. At the heart of the musical are three working class women in 1979, when gas was 86 cents a gallon, the good old boys club ruled, and secretaries would swoon over a typewriter with automatic right margin justification. The musical captures the tone of the era. Erin Romero plays Violet, a single mom whos smarter than all the men in the office. Amanda Kuchinski is Judy, a recently divorced, shy woman who is thrown into the workplace for the first time. Zoe Kassay is Doralee, the bubbly blonde Parton look-alike from Texas, who is constantly fending off the advances of her boss. Her sexy exterior causes gossip among the workplace until she sets everyone straight. These three women come up with a plan to change the workplace and get rid of their boss. The boss is Galloway Stevens as Franklin Hart, Jr., a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot. But you are going to love him in this role. Then theres Roz, the office manager who has a huge crush on Mr. Hart, played so well by Annie Freres. Her rendition of Heart To Hart is a showstopper, the most hysterical number of the evening. The familiar 9 To 5 song opens the show with fantastic energy. The majority of the score is toe-tapping enjoyable. Some of the other numbers I love are Here For You sung by Hart, Get Out and Stay Out sung by Judy, Backwoods Barbie sung by Doralee, and One of the Boys sung by Violet. All of these songs are not only enjoyable, but do a great job with regards to character development and plot. Laura Wright is Margaret, the office alcoholic who offers some funny oneliners. Sean Gorski is Joe, a younger man who is Violets love interest. His song Let Love Grow performed with Romero, is very touching. The performances in this musical are sometimes stunning and always enjoyable. The way the sets change in front of you and the light panels change color add greatly to the total effect. 9 To 5 The Musical is directed and choreographed by Amy Marie McCleary. Its one that will leave you smiling and laughing and humming some familiar and not so familiar melodies on the way home. The show runs through November 17, at Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre. For tickets call 278-4422, visit www. BroadwayPalm.com or stop by the box office at 1380 Colonial Boulevard in Fort Myers. Top Ten Books On The Island1. Thousand Mornings by Mary Oliver 2.

Sanibel Stoop Record Confirmed By Guinness Book Of RecordsWe are pleased to welcome you to the very select club of Guinness World Records title holders. That was the message delivered in a letter to The Community House last week, confirming that last Februarys assembly of islanders and visitors doing The Sanibel Stoop at Bowmans Beach had been accepted as an official record. The record attempt was staged by the Sanibel Community Association (SCA), which operates The Community House, as part of celebration surrounding the 75th anniversary of the Sanibel Shell Show & Fair. The Community House has been the longtime home of the Sanibel Shell Show and Fair, which was first hosted in the 1920s by Hallie Granny Matthews in the lobby of The Matthews Hotel on the beach. Over the years, the Sanibel Shell Show & Fair has grown to become one of the worlds most prominent events in the shell collecting world. The official tally of stoopers registered and confirmed for the event was 478, although an additional 300+ unregistered participants were also observed to be on hand. The record set was for the category of Largest Treasure Hunt Game. To be counted officially a participant had to identify themselves, sign in, and participate in a treasure hunt for shells on the beach. Official participants at the event received a commemorative T-shirt sponsored by Congress Jewelers, and now that the record is official, The Community House has plans to continued on page 9B Aerial image taken during the world record Treasure Hunt Captiva Lighted Boat Parade Is Currently Accepting RegistrationsAs part of the Captiva Holiday Village festivities, the Captiva Lighted Boat Parade committee is accepting registrations for participating vessels.

After putting out a call for series sponsors, Billy and Salli Kirkland were anxious to add their names and their business names, Billys Rentals and Billys Bike shop, as Series Sponsors. When asked why they wanted to be community partners and sponsors, the Kirklands spoke of their connection to The Community House. Salli and Billy Kirkland have had some memorable moments at The Community House on Sanibel Island. Although their memories do not go back to the 1920s and community effort that built the House and started the Sanibel Community Association, they both feel that the events they have attended and parties they have thrown at The House is an important part of their Sanibel history. Billy has always been Sanibels community service volunteer, and while helping with the many Kiwanis Spaghetti dinners held annually at the House he began to understand the important role of the House to service organizations and community gatherings. When Billy was asked to serve on the SCA Board, he realized that it was important to him to serve and to protect the mission of the Community House: To enrich community spirit through educational, cultural and social gatherings in our historic Community House. While serving on the Board he convinced Salli to create a Halloween event for the young children of our island. For the last 12 years, Salli and her daughter Vanessa have been in charge of the Costumes and Candy Fall Carnival, which gives adult volunteers (about 60 of them) the chance to interact with the many darling costumed kids during carnival games, cookie decorating and Billys Pumpkin Hayride. Salli has also held many private parties at The House; including a 10th Anniversary Celebration for Billys Rentals, many employees parties, and Billys 50th and 55th Birthday celebrations. Billy and Salli even held their wedding dance at The Community House. Salli says the reason she loves the Community house, is Not only are so many community events held here, but for me, it is one of the few places you can throw a party of virtually any kind and do your own food or bring in a caterer, and working with the Community House is so economical and flexible. After serving on the SCA Board myself for 6 years, I realize the importance of supporting the House through donations, sponsorships, attending events presented by the SCA, renting the facility for business and personal needs, and becoming SCA members. These are the ways to keep this non-profit alive, as they receive no funding from the City or any other organization. As part of the sponsorship, the Kirklands receive 8 tickets to each event, which they plan to give to their employees and customers to encourage others to attend events at The Community House and become future stewards of our unique Island gift. Sponsors keep ticket prices low and provide a high level of entertainment. Join the Kirklands, Marge & Joe Meek and Mike Kelly as major House sponsors! The next House Party is Honky-Tonk House on Saturday, November 10th. Get your boots on and join the fun. From page 2BFarmers MarketAfter a year of rehab from a stroke, Olga of Big Cs Salsa will be back. Many have missed her fresh salsas and chips and will be excited to see her return with her products that are certain to compliment those Sunday football parties. Fresh flowers, breads, cheeses, pastas, baked goods, etc. will all be on hand to create a well rounded and enjoyable outing for everyone. So grab a friend, hop on our wonderful city bike trail and head to the Sanibel Island Farmers Market. Beginning Sunday, November 4 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., the market returns to Sanibel City Hall, 800 Dunlop Road. Parking is available at the Sanibel Public Library, City Hall and BIG ARTS.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 20124B CESE Draws Interest From Mongolian Schoolsubmitted by Kharli RoseTraditional teachings, spiritual connections, and sustainable development were all part of a recent trip to the Far East for Sanibel resident Peter Blaze Corcoran. Florida Gulf Coast Universitys Center for Environmental and Sustainability Education Director travelled to China and Mongolia in October for scholarly work to promote the mission of the Center. Corcorans recent trip to Beijing, China was a follow-up to last years visit to the Shangri-la Institute for Sustainable Communities in Shangri-la, China, which engages community participation in development projects to encourage sustainability. He is helping plan a 2014 symposium for the Institute that aims to show international scholars the successful work of incorporating indigenous and spiritual traditions in education for sustainable development. The main theme revolves around the teachings of Confucianism, Daoism and Buddhism, which were explained by the Institutes director, Yunhua Liu, in the Centers recently published book, Learning for Sustainability in Times of Accelerating Change. Additionally, Corcoran is working with Liu on scholarly writing about integrating spiritual values, indigenous knowledge and the Earth Charter into environmental education. He felt privileged to be working with Yunhua, whom he regards as a leading Chinese scholar on the Earth Charter. The Charter is a declaration of fundamental principles that seeks to inspire a new sense of global interdependence and shared responsibility for the well-being of Earths inhabitants. FGCU is an affiliate of the Charter and the Center enjoys educating people about its purpose and positive impacts through sustainable applications. The National University of Mongolia is interested in some of the Earth Charters principles in their development of sustainable practices. To fuel these practices, the National University of Mongolia held an international conference themed Challenges and Opportunities for Sustainable Development to commemorate their 70th anniversary and Corcoran was invited to speak on the role of higher education in sustainability. The Centers work was recognized on the trip, as providing examples of sustainability in higher education for the Institute for Sustainable Development at the National University of Mongolia. The University aims to play a key role in building a sustainable future for the nation and can use programs similar to those at FGCUs Center to help chart their course. Mongolian colleagues felt that past experiences at the Center might have positive impacts on Mongolias future. If we can help the National University of Mongolia to set up a more effective Center based on our experience; it would be an honor, Corcoran said. For more information, contact the Center for Environmental Sustainability at 590-7166, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.fgcu.edu/cese. 10th Anniversary Cattle Barons Ball January 19The American Cancer Society announced last week that Harborside Event Center will host the 10th anniversary of the Cattle Barons Ball on January 19. This is the first time the Wild West-style fundraising gala will be held at Harborside, the citys premier event venue located in the heart of the downtown River District. We cant think of a more exciting and appropriate venue than Harborside for the tenth anniversary of the Cattle Barons Ball, said Bob Simpson, CEO of LeeSar, who is chairing the event along with his wife, Linda. The City of Fort Myers has been such a great supporter of the American Cancer Society, so it is fitting that they have partnered with us for this history-making event to support our friends and neighbors who are battling and surviving cancer. The theme of the 2013 Cattle Barons Ball is Starry Nights Under A Southwest Florida Sky. The planning committee promises all the best-loved Wild West features of past events, plus a glitz and glam twist befitting of the anniversary. The gala will feature a night of cowboythemed games, silent and live auctions, exquisite desserts, special surprises and dancing to the award-winning country sounds of One Night Rodeo. Ruths Chris Steakhouse and Norman Love Confections will be back to provide a gourmet dining experience. Premier Oncology is the presenting sponsor for the anniversary gala. LeeSar, a leader in health care supply chain management, has committed a $25,000 R.O.C.K.

The All-Star outfielder was eligible to return to the Giants lineup prior to the World Series, but the Giants sent a clear, stern message that he was persona non-grata. Although he was baseballs top hitter when suspended with a .346 average, a .390 on-base percentage, .516 slugging and 60 RBIs, San Francisco proved they could win without the cheating Cabrera. Now, the biggest off-season question is whether the Giants will bring the free agent Cabrera back next season, or let him go? Either way, his value is likely to be far less as a result of his admitted use of performance enhancing drugs. Interestingly, his absence from post-season play nevertheless was a factor in the Giants winning their second World Series title in the last three years. Cabrera was the MVP in the 2012 All-Star Game, leading the National League team to an 8-0 victory with two hits and two RBIs. That National League win gave the National League champion Giants home field advantage in the World Series. And San Francisco jump-started their World Series sweep over the Tigers by winning those first two games at home. Baseball insiders say that the Giants management has not ruled out offering Cabrera a new contract. He is just 28 years old and certainly is among baseballs elite hitters. And why not bring him back if you can get him at half the price he would have demanded prior to his suspension? Do the Giants fans, however, want their beloved team tainted by a player who admitted taking illegal drugs? Unlike other players who denied taking drugs even after being tested positive, continued on page 14B SPORTS QUIZ 1. Name the only siblings to each toss a no-hitter in the major leagues. 2.

From page 1BSanibel Stoopcreate a new t-shirt proclaiming Sanibels championship status. A diverse group of Island organizations and individuals supported and assisted the effort, which was captured by news cameras and succeeded in attracting significant national media attention. The Lee County Visitors & Convention Bureau promoted the event and provided a helicopter for filming. Anna Tamblyn served as event coordinator. Eric Pfeifer served as master of ceremonies and stoop leader. Rusty Farst provided photographic services. Transportation for participants was managed by the Lions Club (which handled parking), The Sanibel Sea School (which provided bus transportation), and Sanibel Bicycle Club (which led a group of cyclists to the event.) And the Sanibel Shellcrafters prepared special shell items to commemorate the event. We wanted to do something special to call attention to the 75th Anniversary of the Shell Show & Fair, and to reinforce Sanibels position as a special place for shelling, said Marge Meek, Sanibel Community Association President. The Guinness Record attempt captured the idea that hunting for shells can be a lot of fun, and theres no better place than Sanibel to do that.

Around The Islands With AnneIsland Gallery Marks Fifth Anniversary With Major Expansionby Anne MitchellWatson MacRae Gallery is celebrating its fifth season by opening a new and expanded exhibition space. Maureen Watson, owner and curator, says the gallery has nearly doubled in size. Now theres plenty of breathing space for the exhibits. Art needs room to be fully appreciated and the original gallery was getting too crowded for the work to be seen at its best, she said. The additional 600 square feet will enable the gallery to carry a larger selection of fine crafts, include local artists and exhibit larger work. Watson said, The new space gives me flexibility and options to do different things like feature one artist or show installation art without disrupting the current exhibit. It also allows me to bring in more ceramics, glass and jewelry and have a price range that enables everyone to own something artisan made. The new expanded gallery is open and showing its first featured artists. They are Hollis Jeffcoats large paintings from France and New York and sculptures by Leila Walker and Jim Krieger. All three are local artists. Watson explained that the original gallery or North Gallery will continue to feature a themed exhibition each month. The new space, South Gallery, will showcase the work of a featured artist and allow for larger work, installations and special exhibitions. The combined space which shes calling NoSo will change and evolve with new arrivals from ceramic, glass and jewelry artists throughout the season. In addition, the gallery hosts Artists Talks on the second Tuesday of the month. The first will be on Tuesday, November 15 at 3:30 p.m. Watson MacRae Gallery is in The Village Shops, 2340 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel, phone 472-3386. If you travel through airports a lot, you either have to dump your bottled water before reaching the security gate, or carry a bulky re-usable bottle that takes up too much room. A great alternative is the new collapsible water bottles now available at the Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center store. Just empty it out before reaching security then, fill it up from the drinking fountain once you go through. I have purchased one for myself and some others to give as Christmas stocking stuffers. Theyre only $1.29 each and come with a nifty clip for attaching to your purse, suitcase or belt. Of course, there are multiple reasons to stop buying bottled water. Among them: 30 billion plastic water bottles are thrown away every year and they can take up to a thousand years to disintegrate. Making bottles out of plastic takes more than 1.5 million barrels of oil, every year enough to fuel 100,000 American cars for a year. These Kick The Bottle containers are another good reason to do the right thing.

13B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 2012Chamber Of Commerce Promotes Sanibel And Captiva In New MarketsThe Sanibel and Captiva Chamber of Commerce has been working hard to promote our beautiful islands to fresh, new markets. The chamber recently hosted a national Swedish television channel to visit our islands. They filmed a video segment on Sanibel and Captiva for a prime time TV show called Go Kvll (in English, Good Evening). Go Kvll is a daily lifestyle magazine television program featuring travel destinations, cooking tips, style experts, book and film reviews, and much more. The Swedish host, Inger Ljungberg, and her producer, Sara Kempe, traveled to Sanibel and Captiva in March and stayed at one of the historic and recently modernized cottages at the Island Inn. The eight minute video features their fishing trip with Captain John Houston of Native Guides Fishing & SanibelCaptiva Charter Services. He teaches the host how to fish and the result was a superb redfish. The video continues with shelling introduced by Pam Rambo of www.iloveshelling. com, where Inger Ljungberg learns about the different types of shells found on our beaches; a bike rental from Billys Bike Rentals; and Inger meal at Timbers Restaurant & Fish Market, where owner Matt Asen prepared the fish that she caught with Captain John.

15B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 2012 School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My 4th and 6th grade children are getting more homework assignments that make them do revising and editing. Working on their writing with them is difficult because they think I am being too critical, but I am only trying to help them. I need some tips to help with this situation. Thank you. Jolene P., Fort Myers Jolene, Writing is such a personal experience. I know how difficult it can be to make constructive comments to your children so that they accept your advice instead of feel as if you are criticizing them. Start by explaining that revising writing isnt a matter of having done something wrong: Its a chance to make something thats already great even better. Make sure that your children understand the functions of editing and revising. Revising involves making changes like adding or deleting words, reorganizing sentences, or ideas, while editing involves reviewing spelling, punctuation, capitalization, sentence structure, grammar and correcting any mistakes. Below are some tips from www.readwritethink.org, a great website on this very topic: With beginning writers, the revising and editing process will be simpler. Start by reading your childs piece aloud exactly as it is written, having your child listen for the following things: Are any words missing? Are any important facts or events missing? Is there a beginning, middle and end to your work? Read the piece aloud again, and if any of these things are missing, have your child write them. Ask your child to underline words that s/he used more than once in their writing. Then, using a thesaurus, dictionary, or word list, help find different words to replace the underlined words. You can also use these tools to check spelling and capitalization. With a child who has more writing experience, you should do all of the things listed above. But when you first read the piece aloud to him or her, you might also ask him or her to think about the following revising questions: Do I describe what my characters look and feel like? Do I use the right action words with my nouns? Ask your child to fill in any details s/he may have left out. Have your child reread the piece and think about the order of sentences and paragraphs. You might ask whether reordering one or two sentences helps communicate an idea more logically. Ask if ideas are repeated in the same paragraph. If so, is there a way to make the point once? Finally, have your child check that each paragraph has one main idea. Now its time to edit the piece for spelling and grammar. Ask your child to reread the piece and ask the following questions: Are there any words I think I might not have spelled correctly? Do I capitalize proper nouns, like the names of people, pets, and places? Can I think of different words to replace ones that I used a lot? Have the writer also check for apostrophes in contractions and possessives, fixing any mistakes s/he finds. You may also want to use a checklist for this process. Using these tips should make the writing process easier for both you and your children. Ms. Greggs is adjunct faculty at Edison State College where she teaches psychology and education courses.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 201218B Recently, Ive been asked questions about how much a parent should gift to bail out a child who is in financial distress. This is a tough call for many retiree parents who have accumulated some savings, but have to live off the income that those savings generate in a very low yield environment. When an adult child cries out in financial distress, theres that tug of war between the concern for what he or she may be facing against the worry about whether youll have enough to last for your own golden years. What do you tell your adult child who asks for money when they are facing a home foreclosure, or paying high medical bills or educational expenses for their own children as todays tuition rates are sky high? I would suggest that part of the problem lies in the very divergent ways that todays group of retirees lived during their working and child-rearing years compared to that of todays child-rearing generation. Without over-generalizing, my take is that todays retirees werent eager to take on debt whether to finance the purchase of a home, a car or even educational expenses for their children. They lived in more modest, smaller homes than do todays generation. When I was a child growing up my family of four resided in a 1,500 square foot, three bedroom, two bathroom home. My sister and I shared a bathroom, which wasnt easy when we were both teenagers, but we somehow managed. Todays retirees largely drove cars that were often fully paid for, and didnt borrow money to drive expensive luxury models. When I was growing up there were only a few luxury automobile brands Mercedes, Cadillac and BMW come to mind as opposed to todays ubiquitous luxury dealerships in almost every city and town. I dont remember my parents carrying balances on their credit cards. In fact, they wrote checks for most things. Today, we swipe our cards without thinking twice. In fairness to todays generation, everything seems to cost a lot more now. While federal income tax rates are arguably the same or even lower state, county, sales and property taxes take a much larger chunk than at any time in the past. For those of us living on the Florida coast, insuring our homes from windstorm is often as expensive or more expensive than the property taxes. But when you compound the enormous levels of debt that seem so commonplace today, its no wonder that when a job is lost, illness happens or some other financial setback occurs, families are much closer to the line than they were a generation ago. There doesnt appear to be a cushion of savings that prior generations amassed for the proverbial rainy day. So what does todays retiree do when they get that call? Theres no easy answer. The first thing that I would suggest is to meet with your financial advisor to determine if you have the ability to gift any money without suffering a lifestyle change of your own or jeopardizing your own ability to meet your expenses. If you simply dont have the resources, you cant say yes. Honest communication about your abilities is important. Your adult children also may have other options available to them. When asking for large gifts when in financial distress, I would think that an adult child has an obligation to disclose the big picture. How deep in debt are they? If you make the gift to them, will the gift only postpone the inevitable? If this is the case, I would think that the children have a duty to meet with a bankruptcy attorney to review all possible courses of action. Other avenues might be explored. Would it be more helpful for the parent to help pay for health insurance premiums or some other means of support that ultimately bridge the gap from todays problem to a more secure future? Finally, I urge caution when a parent believes that a loan to the adult child is the answer. Promises to pay back loved ones are often neglected, leaving hard feelings and dashed expectations. Even if you decide to loan the money, you should be in a good enough financial position that if the dollars were never repaid it would not adversely affect your future financial security. No one enjoys being in this situation parent and adult child alike. But when confronted with these weighty issues, good communication between everyone involved is paramount to getting through it not only financially, but emotionally. Craig R. Hersch.

19B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 2012 Rec Department Members Of The MonthThe City of Sanibel Recreation Department would like to recognize the Members of the Month, Jim and Gay Griffith. Jim and Gay Griffith have been visiting Sanibel since 1979 and have owned property since 1981. They utilized the former recreation center to establish a regular habit of daily exercise and now continue this routine as members of the new Sanibel Recreation Center since its opening in December 2007. Mrs. Griffith has always loved the water. She was on her college synchronized swimming team and later taught many boy scouts the necessary skills to earn their swimming and lifesaving merit badges so naturally she enjoys the water aerobics classes. Mrs. Griffith attends 3 water aerobics classes each week which are a wonderful source of non-impact therapeutic exercise for her disabilities. Mr. Griffith prefers the convenience of working out in the weight room in addition to jogging on the beach and shared use paths. They both enjoy the health benefits of exercising and feeling energized and physically fit after each workout. When asked their comments about the Sanibel Recreation Center they replied, The facility speaks for itself but what makes it extra special are the people you meet and the courteous, helpful, proficient staff members. We always feel welcome and special. Mr. and Mrs. Griffith met in college at the University of Connecticut. Shortly after graduating they moved to Atlanta, Georgia where Mrs. Griffith taught and Mr. Griffith worked in engineering. He retired In 1992 and they built a house in the North Georgia Mountains where they enjoyed going on hikes, kayaking and traveling. They built their permanent home on Sanibel in 1999 and moved here as permanent residents. Mr. and Mrs. Griffith are active volunteers at Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge, SanibelCaptiva Conservation Foundation, Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, The International Osprey Foundation and Sanibel-Captiva Audubon Society where Mr. Griffith currently serves as president. He has also recently been elected to the board of directors of the Island Water Association. Mr. and Mrs. Griffith have two sons and two daughters and nine grandchildren. 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 their web site at www.mysanibel.com. Jim and Gay Griffith Superior InteriorsImaginative Accessoriesby Marcia FeeneyMore than anything else in your home, your accessories give each and every room a little bit of your personality. Without them, you only have the setting for a model room in a model home. Accessories make each room come alive with pop and pizzazz. Frankly, a home without accessories is like food without seasonings! Enjoy boating? Then why not add a few nautical accents to your rooms overall design plan. Are antiques your thing? Then a few well placed vintage accent pieces might just do the trick. Are you in love with the great outdoors? How about adding a few rustic accents to show off your passion? Acquiring accessories is truly a neverending delight. Here are a few ideas that might help you incorporate your precious treasures into a creative accessory plan for your home: Small artistic objects, like framed photos, are most effective when arranged in odd numbered groups. Blocks of wood or old books can be used to achieve varying degrees of height to may your accessory display even more visually pleasing. Mix things up. Its not necessary for groupings to consist of similar elements. In fact, the more you vary you accessory accents, the more interesting your groupings become. Family photographs are never out of place, especially when theyre grouped in a variety of mix and match frames. Above all... let your accessory imagination soar!

20B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 2012 United Way Launches 2012-13 CampaignMore than 700 volunteers and community leaders gathered at the Harborside Event Center to celebrate the 2012-13 Campaign KickOff of the United Way of Lee, Hendry and Glades. Robert Wilson, United Way Campaign Chair, and vice president of Enterprise Holdings, encouraged everyone to Live United and to Give, Advocate and Volunteer. Our United Way has met its fundraising goals year after year, even during the difficult economic times of the past few years. While there are some signs of improvement in the economy, the needs of our neighbors have not lessened, said Wilson. Many individuals and families who have never asked for help in the past are coming to United Way partner agencies or calling United Way 211 due to loss of jobs, and other overwhelming financial or medical issues. United Way 211, the help-line for human services has experienced dramatic increase in the number of calls it receives requesting help with food, counseling, medical care, utilities and other issues. Before the economic downturn, United Way 211 received an average of 2,500 calls per month. Last month, United Way 211 handled more than 5,000 calls for help. I am passionate about the United Way and look forward to a successful campaign, added Wilson. With your help, we will meet our campaign goal. With your help, we can change lives. With your help, we can make our community stronger. Laurel Smith, United Way Pacesetter Chair and partner in Gravina, Smith, Matte and Arnold, Public Relations and Marketing announced that the Pacesetter Companies those who run their campaigns early to demonstrate United Way support and to encourage others along with early leadership gifts, have already raised a total of $4,690,125. This represents 58 percent of the goal. These results show that our community does Live United and supports the Give. Advocate. Volunteer theme of this campaign, said Smith. Reaching 58 percent of the total goal at this point in the campaign is extraordinary, especially this year. My company supports the United Way, and this community supports the United Way because its the most effective way to help our neighbors and strengthen our community. Publix again broke the $1 million mark by raising the most of any of the Pacesetter Companies with $1,350,555. The top 15 Pacesetter companies include the following: 1. Publix Super Markets $1,350,555 2. Bonita Bay Group $354,304 3. Chicos FAS $350,000 4. LCEC $186,000 5. FineMark National Bank and Trust $174,886 6. WCI $150,000 7. Enterprise Holdings $138,865 8.

21B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 2012 Mom And Me by Lizzie and PryceLizzie and Pryce answer your questions and give advice about aging concerns from a two-generational perspective. A mother and daughter team, Lizzie is a retired RN and health educator, and Pryce is a licensed psychotherapist in private practice who specializes in the care of elders and people with chronic illnesses. Dear Mom & Me, Over the years, I often wondered why my husband chose to marry me. It hasnt been wedded bliss for 50 years, but I have finally decided why. My husband bosses me around like a child. I never initiate anything because he always does everything for me. He does what he wants, gets what he wants and I have never complained. I realize now I have no personality, no interest, no opinions... even when I am sick, he tells me how I feel. This arrangement has always been exactly what he wanted and rather than argue, I just went along to get along. Our two daughters are like their father. They argue a lot with him, rebelled a lot but they both boss their husbands around, just like their father has done to me. Our sons-in-law are both fed up, they have had it and want out of this family. My husband is completely mystified and cant understand why. Please tell me, what has happened? Vivian Dear Vivian, You are a passive follower, but maybe a victim of your own social conditioning. Men were the leaders and they were considered to be so much more intelligent, they made the decisions; women were supposed to keep the house and care for the children. But times have changed. Your daughters may have inherited your husbands personality type, and with more progressive thinking that women can do anything with some, it has been taken to extremes. Some women are so aggressive, their husbands just get fed up being pushed around, so they leave. The pendulum for some has just gone to far. Marriage counseling is a suggestion for your daughters and their husbands. So far as you and your husband are concerned, I doubt that change can ever happen. You have tolerated it for 50 years, accept the fact that he will never change because I dont think he ever will. Lizzie Dear Vivian, By todays standards, you are still in middle age, and you have your health. If you are unhappy with your current situation, while you cannot change your husband, perhaps there are things you can do to change yourself so you can find more joy and contentment in life. It is never too late to explore change and growth for yourself. For your adult children, they need to find their own way. It is probably true they learned their interpersonal and relationship skills at the feet of your husband. However, exploring growth, if any, is their decision.

HealthPark Medical Center Receives Accreditation In Heart Failure CareHealthPark Medical Center received full Heart Failure Accreditation status from the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care (SCPC) on October 12. Earning this accreditation from SCPC is confirmation of our dedication to quality care and our commitment to success through innovation and improvement, said Cindy Brown, RN MSN, Vice President of Patient Care Services at HealthPark Medical Center. HealthPark Medical Center has demonstrated its expertise and commitment to quality patient care by meeting or exceeding a wide set of stringent criteria and undergoing an onsite review by a team of SCPCs accreditation review specialists.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 201222B deaRPharmacistHow To Look 15 Years Youngerby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: I met you at a book signing and was in awe of how good you look at 47 years old. Your skin was radiant and you look 30-something... not a deep wrinkle on you. Whats your secret? LJ, San Diego, California Thank you, that warms my heart because I work at that. Its harder to maintain skin in Colorado, compared to humid Florida, out here its a desert. Soon, Ill offer supplement ideas. I dont believe in making yourself look like a mannequin with all sorts of shots, plumpers or designer lotions. Skin hydration tops my list. Im constantly spraying facial toner (alcohol-free) and I keep a miniature sprayer in my purse to spritz myself and Sam... he never sees it coming, just gets it in the face with cold spray, ha-ha! He says this habit of mine reminds him of Gus from My Big Fat Greek Wedding, who sprayed Windex on everybody. Yeah, totally me but hey, it works. FYI, this habit helps prevent razor bumps and its fabulous right after a bikini wax. What you eat will either nourish or damage your cells, and influence your appearance. If you consume processed foods, or smoke and drink things that are oxidants, you unleash free-radicals which do one thing, and only one thing, rust you. Wrinkling is just rusting of the skin. This is why ANTI-oxidants are beneficial. Here are my other secrets: Exercise Nothing detoxifies the body like sweating. For me, its yoga, Zumba dance or my infrared sauna. Astaxanthin The king of carotenoids, this natural algae acts as an internal sunscreen. I take 12mg daily and never go a day without it. Im athletic, and astaxanthin is clinically proven to support joint health, giving me bang for the buck. Several well-designed studies conclude that natural astaxanthin prevents skin damage from the suns ultraviolet rays and this reduces signs of sagging, wrinkles and dryness. Zinc I take a 20 mg lozenge every day, for 3 to 4 months each year, beginning in the fall or winter (because it also improves immunity). Zinc is known to help with wound healing. Plant Oils (or Fish Oils) These lubricants add moisture to your skin, reducing fine lines and supporting heart health. Probiotics You may associate beneficial bacteria (probiotics) with digestive health, but they are extremely helpful for skin conditions like psoriasis or eczema, and fungal conditions. Isnt skin your bodys first line of defense against germs? French green or Rose clay A great overall cleanser, which I do once a month. Add one drop of lavender, clary sage and tea tree essential oil for added benefit. I use a peel every month to diminish fine lines and reduce pores. The product I like comes in towelettes called Alpha Beta Peel by Dr. Dennis Gross. Its paraben-free. Thats good because parabens are endocrine disruptors and mess with hormone balance. In fact, elevated estrogen may cause cystic acne and heavy periods. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: I am having trouble saying No to just about everyone. I feel this need to please everyone in order to be liked. If I try to say no, I back down and then I am mad at myself for not standing up for myself. Can you help?A: Learning to say No takes some courage and a lot of practice. It wlll be empowering once you learn to express your true feelings. You will be treated with respect once you assert yourself, although that seems hard to fathom right now. Often when you Yes others, you are taken advantage of... and I suppose you have already discovered that. This takes practicing self-care and feeling a sense of inner peace. You have to realize that you are the priority and not the doormat for others to walk all over you. When you can consciously work through this, set the intention to say No at least once a day, you will gain a new self-respect, making it easier to express your true self again and again. You will not be disappointed. If others remove themselves from you, then perhaps you never needed them in your life in the first place. By healing yourself with the power of saying No, you are healing yourself, step-by-step, moment-by-moment.

23B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 2, 2012 Dr. DaveSelf Triageby Dr. Dave HepburnIt isnt in any of the travel brochures. Fodors forgot and Lonely Planet left it lonely. We were in Budapest, a tale of two cities with Pest (not pest as in silverfish or Kanye West) on the flat side of the Danube and Buda (not Buddha, as in large following and larger navel force) on the hilly other. While strolling aimlessly down the back streets of Buda (translated: we were really, really lost), we bumped into a young Hungarian who gestured to us in a manner that meant he wanted to help us out or possibly rob us. I attempted to communicate in my best Hungarian, but as the only words I actually knew were paprika and goulash, this would have been a very short and confusing culinary conversation except that he handed me a photo of some caves/rocks and said the word hospital. Remarkably, prior to WWII, a hospital had been built into a massive rock, a series of caves that ran for some 10 kilometers. An amazing place with a horrific story! We found it and were given a tour of this hospital that had been used to treat Hungarian soldiers and their German allies. The caves were cold and rooms small, yet there was an entire operating room, which at the time was state of the art. An x-ray machine, a lab, some wards complete with gas masks and first aid kits. A triage room where soldiers lay cold and wounded, and hospital wards where so many soldiers were treated that bunk beds were jammed together so three bodies could lie on two mattresses. Though made for 200 patients, there were usually 800 at a time. Deceased bodies were sent up a back tunnel to the churchyard and buried in a bomb crater to be excavated after the Russian siege. While under siege by the Russians, Hitler commanded those 20,000 Hungarians holed up in the rock to stay put and provide some resistance, even though, initially, they could have escaped at any time. He wanted the Russians delayed long enough to prevent them taking Vienna. On the day they finally broke out, the Russians were waiting for them, courtesy of spies, and killed all but 750 who escaped to the German lines 6 km away. An incredible, tragic and unheard of story as it was kept behind the iron curtain for decades. The Russians then took over the hospital and kept it through the Hungarian uprising of 1956 where both Hungarians and Russians were treated. A couple of years later it was converted into a nuclear bunker and kept top secret until I, Indiana Dave, discovered it. In our hospitals, emergency staff are mercilessly over worked because, in part, they spend no shortage of time dealing with ridiculous, non-emergency stuff ranging from colds (man colds excluded, as they are deemed life threatening) to acne to ingrown toenails to bladder infections to prescription refills. It is the mundane non-emergent nonsense of the worried well, that clogs up our system like your in-laws clog up your plumbing. Excuse me, sir, but your crushing chest pain will have to wait as there is a case in front of you of a paper cut, apparently on the thumb. Fortunately, the ER has expert triage personnel who are well trained to sift out those with true emergencies from those with chronic yet severe wimp-itis. When youre not sure where, or even if, you need to be seen for a medical issue, take a moment and triage yourself. Those of you who listen to Wisequacks will now be so knowledgeable that you can perform your own lobotomies, like Sealey has. Assuming the answer isnt on wisequacks.org (a safe assumption), then follow this protocol: Step one Do you have a friend who is a distant relative of a doctor, one who might be in the throes of landing a record sturgeon from the Fraser or in the midst of tightrope walking across the Sooke potholes. Call him immediately, of course. Doc, I have a cough... Step two Call the 24-hour Healthlink BC line. 8-1-1. You can get a nurse, pharmacist and even a dietician here. Step three When your own doctor isnt available due to the fact that he/ she is busy, likely taking a course (Bear Mountain being my favourite), then walkin clinics are invaluable in helping deal with those issues that dont need to clog up emerg. Step four Try a different friend with a different relative. Step five Emerg NOTE: Reverse that order if you have symptoms of a heart attack, stroke, appendicitis, paprika-itis or your left leg is in a different room than your left arm. But otherwise, dont be a Pest. 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. If interested in going with him, call 888-432-8344 to find out more. Let Our Family ...

I am so good-natured and gentle, you will fall in love with me. After all, I love everything and everybody! Each morning, I jump out of my cage just to rub on someones leg. Then, I wait to be picked up for my daily dose of love. I enjoy playtime and cuddling and cant wait until I have a real home so I can be your sidekick. My adoption fee is $25 during Animal Services Dogtober and Caturday adoption special (regularly $75). For information about this weeks pets, call 533-7387 (LEE-PETS) or log on to Animal Services website at www.LeeLostPets.com. When calling, refer to the animals ID number.

The adoption package is valued at $500. Marquise ID# 547408 Falafel ID# 454943 photos by squaredogphoto.com PAWSBenji is a stray Bengal cat, approximately 6-years-old, affectionate and looking for a foster or forever home. Benji would probably do best as the only cat in the home. Bengal cats are popular because of their leopard-like coats; they are actually descendants of Asian leopard cats. A lot of Bengals love to talk. They meow, chirp and yowl. You can even talk to them and they will happily respond to you. They really love to spend their time with their families. In this sense, they are very unique when compared to other cats, which are often aloof and independent. In fact, Bengals are very similar to dogs in this character trait. Sweet Blackie needs a home. He is about 1-year-old, very affectionate and quite healthy. Donations made payable to PAWS can be mailed to P.O. Box 855, Sanibel, FL 33957. To adopt or foster Benji, Sami Ann or Blackie, call Pam at PAWS at 472-4823. Benji Blackie
