Volunteers and donors kicked off a $200,000 campaign to restore Shore Haven and make necessary improvements to the village infrastructure. Janet and Peter Halliday are chairing the campaign, which will be officially launched November 25. The Sanibel Captiva Trust Company and Baileys General Store were recognized at the event for their sponsorship donations. The villages board has allocated $150,000 from its reserves toward these projects, but the scope of the Shore Haven renovation requires this 30th anniversary campaign. Anyone interested in making a substantial donation to the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village 30th Anniversary Campaign, please consider donating appreciated stock from your investment portfolio, said Peter Halliday. You can achieve increased tax benefits while helping us plan for the future. The Sanibel Captiva Trust Company has established a Gift Account where donors can have their appreciated stock delivered directly into the account from their broker or investment manager. The stock will then be sold and all proceeds wired to the museum, all without any fees or expenses from the sale of the stock. The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village will receive 100 percent of the value of the donated stock. We thank the Sanibel Captiva Trust Company for their generosity in helping us with this effort, said Halliday. The stock must have been held for more than one year to be eligible for the qualified appreciated stock deduction. Prior to making a donation of stock, consult first with your tax professional and/or investment advisor, Halliday said.

5 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 15, 2013Kids Thankful For FISH Cooking ProgramWith the feel of fall and Thanksgiving in the air, eight young chefs and their parents brought together education, nutrition and the meaning of Thanksgiving to create a three-course lightened up, kidfriendly Thanksgiving meal at the FISH of Sanibel Cooking With Kids program. The program, now in its second year, motivates and empowers children and their families to make healthy food choices through hands-on activities. The event took place on November 5 in the St. Michael & All Angels Episcopal Church kitchen on Sanibel, and was taught by Celia Hill, Lee County Extension agent. Children ages three through 16 prepared a lighter version of the traditional Thanksgiving meal. They made turkey nuggets, green bean casserole, make-over corn casserole, glazed butternut squash and light pumpkin pie. Participants learned that delicious food can be easy to create and is an important way to take care of yourself and your family. Hill used foods available from the FISH food pantry to teach the children and their parents/guardians about the importance of a balanced diet. Once the meal was prepared, everyone got an opportunity to taste their kitchen creations. This was a very special evening, as the preparation and meal was centered on the Thanksgiving tradition. It was wonderful to teach children that one aspect of Thanksgiving involves gratitude for having enough food to eat, and to explain the importance of what FISH does for the community, said Christine Swiersz, FISH program director. We focused on the education and nutrition while emphasizing the joy of celebrating with family and friends, learning to be grateful for what we have, and to help those who may have less than we do.

Halloween at The Community House magically captured that hard to put into words elusive essence of what makes Sanibel, Sanibel. If you long to bask in sweet, simple moments in which people pause and authentically enjoy the presence of their neighbors (from the island and around the world), the sincere connectedness and spirit of our sanctuary island, you must come to one of these events. I went to this childrens party as an empty-nester sans children, had a ball and left with a sense of true belonging. In the eyes of my idealistic heart, it was everything a community party should be. It was what makes Sanibel, Sanibel; a true sanctuary island that nurtures the simple, sincere sense of community we all cherish. Thank you particularly to Salli and Billy Kirkland and everyone at The Community House for being the keepers of the community spirit that is Sanibel. I am so grateful to belong to such a community such as this.

The approval is subject to 13 conditions. The applicant, Ben Dahlmann, represented by attorney Steven Hartsell and architect Raymond Fenton, was seeking variances to the land development code, increasing the maximum permitted commercial floor area ratio from 10 percent to 15 percent; increasing the maximum permitted land area permitted to be covered with impermeable surfaces from 45 percent to 62 percent; increasing the maximum permitted land area used as developed area used as developed area and cleared of vegetation from 50 percent to 63 percent; and seeking relief from the installation requirements for the front, side and rear vegetation buffers. The applicant will swap out unused space elsewhere in the center to make up for increasing the floor area by removing access to that space. However, the variances that were requested by Dahlmann Periwinkle Place LP needed to overcome one final hurdle during Tuesdays meeting before being granted by the seven-member panel. According to Roy Gibson, acting director of planning, representatives of Periwinkle Place and city staff met following the last planning commission meeting. On November 5, the applicant submitted a revised landscape buffer plan. Gibson submitted a memorandum from Holly Milbrandt, the citys environmental biologist, reviewing the revised landscape buffer plan and a recommendation that the buffers be maintained as required by the Sanibel Code. In addition, Gibsons report also included a review of the 13 conditions his staff prepared for the planning commission, including: The use is not permitted to be a formula restaurant; No walk-up or drive-through facilities are permitted on-site; At least one additional bicycle rack shall be provided; The parcel shall comply with the restrictions and regulations for signs; any new signage shall require separate approval. We do not object to this plan as presented by the applicant, said Gibson. However, Gibson did request an additional requirement of providing connectivity between the Forever Green Shopping Center located next door to Periwinkle Place as well as improved connectivity with Sanibels shared use path system. With respect to connectivity of the Forever Green and Periwinkle Place parking lots, staff recommends that the applicant be required to provide/maintain a pedestrian/bicycle path at the location of an existing footpath that currently connects the two parking lots, his memorandum noted. Moreover, staff is recommending that the applicant be required to establish at least one pedestrian/bicycle connection to the shared use path system to provide pedestrian/bicycle access away from Periwinkle Place driveways. Hartsell voiced his objection to the pedestrian/bicycle path requirement, pointing out that it not only is not a standard code requirement, but the existing shared use path system has been serving the community suitably for many years. He also explained that electrical wires and utility equipment located between Periwinkle Place and Forever Green would make adding a pathway between the two shopping centers difficult. Michael Valiquette, chairman of the planning commission, questioned City Attorney Ken Cuyler whether they could impose a requirement of a pedestrian/ bicycle connection to the shared use path. Cuyler confirmed that they could. Commissioner Chuck Ketteman said that he was surprised by the applicants objection to including an additional pedestrian/bicycle connection, noting that improving movement between the two shopping centers would be good for business and might improve the safety of their customers. Hartsell responded that their objection was only being consistent with the citys code requirement, not due to a lack of concern for safety. You could set an example here, fellow commissioner Dr. Phillip Marks said to the applicant group. You are the biggest shopping center on the island. After hearing the objections of Valiquette, Ketteman, Holly Smith and John Talmage, Hartsell told the commission that they will work with city staff on all aspects of the variance requirements, including a pedestrian/bicycle connection to bike path. After a brief discussion, commissioners agreed not to require any connectivity between Periwinkle Place and Forever Green. Ketteman made a motion to approve the application, which was seconded by Chris Heidrick, and will include amendments to maintain landscaping to current city codes. The motion passed, 5-2, with Marks and Thomas Krekel opposed. Share your community news with us. Call 395-1213, Fax 395-2299 or email

CorrectionsIn last weeks Island Sun, the vote in favor of drafting city legislation to stop buses from dropping off and picking up passengers at beach parking lots was incorrect. It passed 3-1, with Vice Mayor Doug Congress opposed. Also, the three planning commissioners whose terms expire in January will not be formally appointed until council passes a resolution in December. Dr. Larry Antonucci Democratic ClubOn Thursday, November 2l at 7 p.m., the Democratic Club of the Islands will meet at the Sanibel Public Library, 770 Dunlop Road. The meeting is free and open to the public. Award winning journalist Roger Williams, who holds a masters degree from Columbia University, will discuss Voting Water, or what it takes to make a real change in our current water dilemma. As a columnist for the Florida Weekly, he noted that: Politicians control the flow of money and voters control the politicians. If we want to clean our water and carry on living like the blessed, we cant support politicians who dont show an aggressive willingness to wean ourselves from Big Sugar. He is careful to point out that as Governor, Charlie Crist almost completed a deal that would have sold the 700,000acre Everglades Agricultural Area to the state of Florida and possibly could have saved the Everglades and dramatically improved local and state water systems. Progressive thinkers, Democrats of all stripes and anyone concerned with the impact of releases from Lake O, are urged to attend and learn more about this issue, and to discover what steps are needed now. Members of the Democratic Club will be reviewing by-law changes. Those attending who wish to participate more fully in the clubs activities and become members or renew their membership, are reminded that dues are payable at the meeting for $25 per person. Checks are payable to DCI.For more information contact or call 395-9078.

He writes in his memoir, It is my intention and hope that my story will provide an eyewitness report for current and future generations, since it is imperative that no one should ever forget those awful times that resulted in the death and murder of six million Jews.

Walk Through Bethlehem At ChurchSanibel Community Church invites the public to take a Walk Through Bethlehem. A special performance will be held on Wednesday, December 4 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. The walk is designed to take participants back 2,000 years to the night of Jesus birth and to experience the hope and longing of the Israelites for their long-promised Messiah, as well as the derision of the Roman guards and the wonder of a night beneath the stars in the marketplace of the ancient city of Bethlehem. They can gaze upon the infant born in the cave behind the inn. Organizers want to recreate the streets on which the shepherds traveled all those years ago searching to see if the promised Messiah had been born. Additional performances include Friday, December 6 (Luminary Night), 6 to 9 p.m. Sanibel Community Church is located at 1740 Periwinkle Way (next to Jerrys Market).

11 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 15, 2013 Rabbi Rudin Honored For Lifelong Interfaith AccomplishmentsIn recognition of his lifelong efforts to build bridges of understanding between different faiths, Rabbi A. James Rudin, a member of Sanibels Temple Bat Yam, was honored by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) with its Abraham H. Foxman Exceptional Leadership Award during the leagues annual meeting in New York on November 1. Through decades of leadership and service, Rabbi Rudin has been a trailblazer in interfaith relations throughout his career, said Ronald D. Balser, ADL National Commissioner, in presenting the award. While his accomplishments are impressive unto themselves, it is the humanity, grace and empathy with which Rabbi Rudin conducts himself that really speaks to his character. Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, said during the award presentation that Rabbi Rudin has been tireless in building bridges between faiths and promoting interreligious understanding and respect, and that his work with the Catholic Church has been exemplary. Rabbi Rudin is senior interreligious adviser of the American Jewish Committee (AJC) and also served as the organizations longtime director of interreligious affairs. In more than 35 years at AJC, he was involved in several momentous interfaith dialogues and convocations and established interfaith understanding as a priority for the Jewish community. He is the author most recently of Cushing, Spellman, OConnor: The Surprising Story of How Three American Cardinals Transformed Catholic-Jewish Relations, and is also author and editor of other works including Israel for Christians: Understanding Modern Israel, Evangelicals and Jews in Conversation; Evangelicals and Jews in an Age of Pluralism; Twenty Years of Jewish-Catholic Relations and A Time to Speak: The Evangelical-Jewish Encounter. Rabbi Rudin served in Japan and Korea as a United States Air Force Chaplain where he shared the same quarters and chapel with those of different faiths and was able to teach servicemen about Judaism and the State of Israel. He was also a steadfast champion of civil rights and marched in Mississippi in the early 1960s. In 1997, he was awarded the Person of Reconciliation Award from the Polish Council of Christians and Jews in Warsaw and in 1999, the International Council of Christians and Jews awarded him its Interfaith Medallion. Interfaith relations is needed now more than ever, Rabbi Rudin said in accepting the award. Religion, for good or ill, is playing a major role in world politics, culture, economics and international relations. And if we want a world free of hatred as the ADL has worked so hard to do a world that is safer for Jews; if we want a world that our beloved State of Israel has finally achieved (its own) safety, security, survival; we must continue to deal with religious leaders and the religious folk throughout the world, whether we agree with them or not, or whether they agree with us or not. The ADL Abraham H. Foxman Exceptional Leadership Award was established by Ronald D. and Barbara B. Balser as a tribute to the leagues longtime national director, who for more than four decades has fought the forces of inhumanity and indecency and all forms of prejudice and discrimination. Rabbi A.

People who are dealing with loss of a loved one, loss of health, depression or being away from long time friends and family at times may feel as if there is shadow over the holiday season. Thats why on Sunday, December 8 at 4:30 p.m., the church is offering a candlelight vespers service so people can gather to give each other support and offer hope. This service will give space to honestly acknowledge the difficulties of dealing with grief during the Christmas season, while still offering the hope of the One whose birth we celebrate. Afterwards, dinner will be shared in Fellowship Hall. This event is open to the public. Please reserve your place for the supper by calling the church office at 4720497, or call if you have any questions. Supper will be hosted and provided by SCWIM (Sanibel Congregational Women In Mission). Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ is located at 2050 Periwinkle Way, across the street from Periwinkle Place.

CROW Case Of The Week: Nursery Newsby Patricia MolloyBaby care is a substantial portion of the rehabilitation work performed at CROW. Each year, the wildlife clinic treats thousands of orphaned, abandoned and injured baby bunnies, squirrels, opossums and raccoons, in addition to ducklings, songbirds, fuzzy owlets, raptors and the occasional tiny turtle. The team of staff members, students and volunteers works around the clock to administer species-specific diets and critical medications while providing environments in which the youngsters will thrive. In September, seven healthy baby striped skunks were admitted to CROW after their mother was trapped and removed from her territory in Lee county. The kits were approximately three to four weeks old. They were initially housed in a separate room in the nursery to avoid any stinky mishaps with other babies. Students bottle-fed them several times a day, resulting in rapid growth. The kits have since been relocated to an outdoor enclosure and are nearly old enough to be released. A flying squirrel arrived last month as an orphan. The tiny nocturnal creature was hairless and its large black eyes were not yet open, indicating that it was less than a month old. After several weeks of care in the nursery, it was transferred outside where it will learn to feed and care for itself. Once Dr. Heather has deemed the patient mature enough to survive, the flying squirrel will be returned to a wooded area to glide from limb to limb under the cover of night. The avian nursery, which is perpetually at capacity, currently houses dozens of tiny patients, most of which arrived with light, downy feathers. Lined with incubators, the shelves of the room also contain tall stacks of clean towels and old newspapers. Volunteers, staff and students move quickly and efficiently from one hungry bird to the next, meticulously recording individual body weights and dietary requirements. Each cage and carrier must be disinfected daily to minimize the possibilities of spreading germs. As soon as each patient has been fed, the team begins the well-choreographed routine once again. It takes weeks or months for babies to mature enough to survive in the wild. Most of the babies raised at the clinic from babyhood do not need to be returned to the exact location in which they were found, since they were too young to have established a territory. If you are interested in having wild mammals, birds or reptiles released on your property, contact the clinic for the set of guidelines to determine if your land is suitable. 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.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 15, 201316 Wittkopf Shares Shell Knowledge With Curious Kidsby Jeff LysiakRenowned shelling expert and best-selling author of several shell books Harlan Wittkopf was invited last week to be the special guest star in an upcoming episode of WGCUs Curious Kids program. The segment was filmed on the beach behind Sandalfoot condominiums on Sanibel. Curious Kids is a show from a kids point of view, said program producer Rosie Emery. The kids conduct the interviews, and they come up with the questions all by themselves. In the segment filmed last Thursday morning, three local children Jaden Wicker, 12, of Naples, and siblings Nicole Kelly, 11, and Natalie Kelly, 9, of Cape Coral ask Wittkopf about his professional background as a lawyer and small claims court judge and how he eventually became an expert on shells. Is this a hobby or a career for you? one of the kids asked. What are shells made of? another inquired. Do you think that you made a difference being a judge? asked another. Shelling used to be a hobby for me, but over the years it eventually became another career, Wittkopf told the kids. Everybody loves sea shells. Ive never seen anybody get angry at a sea shell. According to Emery, the episode of Curious Kids filmed on Sanibel which will focus on career choices will include a music video, but will also likely be the last in the series. Lack of funding at WGCU has forced the cancellation of the show following this final episode, which will be broadcast in March 2014. After filming was completed, Wittkopf gave each of the kids a copy of his book Alphie Finds The Seashell Alphabet as well as an alphabet cone containing the first initial from their first names.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 15, 201318 An Inside Look At Wildlife Recovery The CROW Picture Show offers insights about the native and migratory wildlife species brought to the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, with photos of patients in treatment at the facility. In 2012, CROWs wildlife hospital cared for 3,583 sick, injured and orphaned animals. Of the 200 different species, 61 percent were birds, with 33 percent mammals and 6 percent reptiles. CROW is not permitted to display its patients publically, so this presentation offers the next best thing: numerous candid snapshots of current and past patients, with commentary by Claudia Burns, a veteran clinic volunteer. The next CROW Picture Show will be held on Friday, November 15 at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. in CROWs Visitor Education Center, located at 3883 Sanibel-Captiva Road, across from The Sanibel School. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for teens and free for members and children 12 and under. The entry fee also includes access to the Visitor Education Center, which exhibits CROWs efforts to save wildlife through care, education and collaboration. For more information, call 472-3644 ext. 228 or visit Audubon Needs Christmas Bird CountersSan-Cap Audubon will conduct its annual Christmas Bird Count on Saturday, December 14. The results of the local count will be forwarded to the National Audubon Society for inclusion in the 114th National Christmas Bird Count. More than 50,000 observers participate each year in this census of early-winter bird populations. The results are compiled into the longest running database in ornithology, representing over a century of unbroken data on trends of early-winter bird populations across the Americas. Simply put, the Christmas Bird count, or CBC, is citizen science in action. Prior to the turn of the 20th century, people engaged in a holiday tradition known as the Christmas Side Hunt. They would choose sides and go into the field with their guns; whoever brought in the biggest pile of feathered (and furred) quarry won. Conservation was in its infancy around the turn of the century, and many observers and scientist were becoming concerned about declining bird populations. Beginning on Christmas Day 1900, ornithologist Frank Chapman, an early officer in the then budding Audubon Society, proposed a new holiday tradition, a Christmas Bird Census that would count birds in the holidays rather than hunt them. So began the Christmas Bird Count. Thanks to the inspiration of Chapman and the enthusiasm of 27 dedicated birders, 25 Christmas Bird Counts were held that day. The locations ranged from Toronto, Ontario, to Pacific Grove, California with most counts in or near the population centers in northeastern North America. Those original 27 Christmas bird counters tallied a total of 90 species on all the counts combined. Volunteers are needed for this years count. Birding skills are desirable but not necessary. To participate in this years count or for more information, call 4372459.

19 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 15, 2013 Plant SmartGingerbread Palm by Gerri ReavesThe gingerbread palm (Hyphaene thebaica) is native to Egypt and other parts of coastal Africa. Also called doum palm, it prefers a hot, dry, sunny climate and is therefore very drought tolerant. It is also very salt tolerant. In Egypt, the tree has been considered sacred since ancient times and was thought to provide shade, water, and food to the dead. The fruit was buried in the tombs of the pharaohs. It typically grows to about 25 feet high, with large fan-shaped leaves and leaf stalks armed with curved thorns. The spikes of male or female flowers bloom on separate trees. The female tree produces the dark-brown woody fruit that tends to remain on the tree for an extended time. Shiny, rounded, and smooth, the fruit emits a gingerbread odor that gives the palm its common name. The dried and powdered fruit is used in flavoring foods. The single ivorycolored seed called vegetable ivory is currently popular in jewelry-making because it is a durable renewable resource. In the trees native region, the ivory has long been used for making buttons, carvings, and artificial pearls. In fact, all parts of the tree have a traditional use. The leaves, for example, are used in making baskets, mats, brooms, ropes, and various textiles, and the wood is used in building. The roots have medicinal properties and are also used to make alcoholic drinks.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 15, 201322 Birds Eye ViewIts Never Overby Mark Bird WestallWhen I began my osprey study back in 1979, I had to explore what would eventually become the Wilderness Area of the J. N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge looking for nests. The Wilderness Area encompasses all the mangrove forest on the right side of the Wildlife Drive. Once, as I was entering a hidden tidal pool in my canoe from a tunnel through the mangroves (before Hurricane Charley I used to call these tunnels mangrove caves because you felt like you were in one), I suddenly heard what sounded like thunder and a wave of water about a foot high rose up in front of my canoe for no apparent reason. Pilgrim that I was in the mangrove environment, I had no idea what was happening. I looked up at the sky and there wasnt a cloud to be seen, so the wave couldnt have been caused by stormy weather. Thoughts began to cross my mind that maybe I had just come across some sort of Loch Ness Monster. I was soon to discover that it was a huge school of mullet that had been hiding in the deeper waters of the mangrove cave and my passing had herded them up over a shallow delta at the entrance to the pool. There were so many of them that they pushed a wall of water in front of them as they fled over the sandbar and escaped. The sound of thunder was caused by their tails striking the bottom. In those days, mullet were still plentiful and most locals had old refrigerators that they turned into homemade smokers. I still think smoked mullet salad (fixed like tuna fish salad) is delicious. But by the late s, the large schools were nowhere to be found and you were lucky if you saw schools of maybe 10-15 fish. What had happened was over harvesting by the commercial fishermen. The Asians were paying large amounts of money for the roe of the mullet and eating it like caviar. Thus, like many scenarios that involve humans making money off of the planets natural resources, the mullet and the industry that harvested it almost disappeared. But in the mid-s, the large, quarter-mile-long gill nets were outlawed by state constitutional amendment and the mullet have slowly been making a comeback. This fall it has been very exciting for my customers to watch the large schools of mullet boil around my canoe in the shallow waters of the refuge; watching the fish participate in the mullet Olympics (the high jump and the long jump). I tell them that I have caught five mullet over the years by having them jump in the canoe. Unfortunately for the fishermen, the change hasnt been so easy. And with the mullets return, the push by the commercial fishing industry to return to how it used to be has increased with vigor. Therefore, the mullets comeback may have been for only a few years because on November 7, Leon County Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford agreed with the commercial fishing industry that there is something, somehow, wrong about protecting Floridas fisheries from commercial gill nets. Personally, I always felt a little sorry for the local commercial fishermen (most of them these days live on Pine Island) because I dont like to see a livelihood that was participated in for generations suddenly being outlawed. First of all, I thought it was silly to manage a natural resource by changing the states constitution. But I also had hoped that the states commercial interests would come to understand that some sort of workable management program must be enacted if a natural resource is to provide economic support for future generations. But my concerns were stirred into anger and I eventually supported the amendment mostly as a result of seeing the impact the heavy commercial activity had on the sensitive environment of the shallow mudflats of the refuge. I started seeing long, circular scars on the mudflats caused by the fishermen herding the fish (most likely not only mullet) with their boats into their set nets. The clincher for me was when I discovered several times in the backwaters of the refuge stingrays strung up and hanging in the trees with their bellies cut open and their insides hanging down to the water. What were the fishermen trying to do? Teach the stingrays that they better not get hung up in the fishermans net? I have said many times, you have to think of Florida as a third world country that will support any short-term economic gain even if it means destroying a valued natural resource in the long run. The state commercial fishermen did not want anyone to tell them how to manage their mullet populations and they had (and still have, it appears) the support of the state government. We can only hope that a higher court will overturn Judge Fulfords decision soon because until that time the mudflat ecosystem is not safe. So, any environmental fight that appears to have been won, dont count on it. Those that would rape the environment are just waiting for the right moment to get their chance to start over again!

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 15, 201324 With Good Bait You Can Catch Fish Near Homeby Capt. Matt MitchellShiner fishing this week continued to go off with snook, trout, mangrove snapper and jacks being the majority of species caught. Most of my week was spent hiding from the wind in mangrove creeks and shallow sheltered bays. As long as the tide was moving the action was fast paced with fish responding to chummed live shiners by crashing them right on the surface. This method of live bait fishing adds such a visual aspect to our fishing even when youre not catching fish youre watching fish feed. Basically, if you could get good bait and lots of it, the fishing was easy. Action this week also included the largest trout I have seen all year. Narrow, deep creek mouths in the southern sound were loaded up with trout ranging from 16 inches all the way up to a 28-inch, 6-pound-plus monster gator trout. Having these big trout blow up on the surface as they chase the shiners around is an awesome thing. Once these trout show themselves, its often as simple as casting your bait to where the blow up on the live chum was and the fish will quickly hit the hooked bait. These big trout put up a real fight and generally make a few runs before coming boatside. The best bite for these monster trout came during the first hour of the incoming tide during the lowest water periods. Mangrove shorelines way back in the Ding Darling Refuge held some quality snook this week too. Several of my favorite dead-end bays had lots of snook of all sizes during periods of higher incoming water which came during the late afternoon hours. Our big refuge snook this week measured 32 inches but several times I had clients hook into fish much bigger than that which parted ways after reaching the barnacle-crusted trees. Many of these bigger snook seem to be hanging out in shallow water over sandy bottom in the twoto three-foot range. Hooking a 15-pound plus snook in two feet of water is an experience that is not soon forgotten by any angler. After chumming these bays with live shiners, you quickly hear and see where the big snook are hanging out feeding. The sound of a big snook crashing a bait on the surface is a sound that only a snook can make. They sound so different than surface feeding trout and jacks. Imagine someone dropping a bowling ball in the water from 10 feet up. When one section of shoreline would really explode with feeding fish I used the trolling motor to get within casting range and powerpole down, casting to where we are seeing the fish feed. Its basically live bait sight fishing. Once the action on shoreline quits keep moving; feeding these fish shiners really makes them eat when they wont feed on anything else. Several of these same bays and shorelines held a few real quality redfish too. What these redfish lacked in numbers they made up for in size. One such red this week was 26 inches and weighed just over eight pounds on the Boga Grip. This was quite possibly one of the fatter redfish I have ever seen, Most trips, while targeting and catching snook, we managed one or two top of or over-the-slot redfish. With the tides finally flipping over this week giving us big high water in the mornings, mangrove redfish action should really pick up. One of my favorite things about November is that you dont have to go far to catch fish. This really held true this week as most of the running I did was spent to go catch quality bait. Once I had my clients on board as much action as you wanted was within a few miles of the dock. With windy, rough conditions most days having great bait meant being able to stay close to home and keep everyone comfortable while finding non-stop action. November 15 marks my favorite day of the year, the end of the pointless no science manatee zones in the sound. This really opens up a lot of water to anglers that usually just takes too long to reach or is to shallow fish without running on plane. After the 15th I get to fish places I have not fished since April. Its better than Christmas!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 ISLAND MARINE SERVICES, INC.

Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge. The theme this year is In the Pink, in homage to the iconic bird, the roseate spoonbill. Last years inaugural Cuckoo for Ding Trailgate Party took its theme from the mangrove cuckoo research study being conducted at the refuge the past couple of years. So the roseate spoonbill will be the second of our Big 5 birds we are featuring, said Birgie Vertesch, executive director of the Ding Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge, which hosts the event.

The trailgate party will take place at the refuge and will include live entertainment and silent and live auctions to provide support where government funding falls short for the refuge. In Southwest Florida, we have a calendar chock full of community events, but the Ding Trailgate Party is becoming the one not to miss, said society board president John McCabe. Taking place under a tent and having truck tailgates as serving tables, its a fun, laid-back, island-style party with good food, live music, and uniquely Ding auction items. Silent auction items already on the table include an original, framed Ding Darling cartoon from 1937 commenting on the stock market, a hand-painted roseate spoonbill plate, and his and her artist-painted, island-themed bicycles. Seating is limited and we once again anticipate a sold-out crowd, said event committee member and DDWS vice president Doris Hardy.

31 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 15, 2013 Noahs Concert Raises $30,000 For Golisano Childrens HospitalIslanders gathered at BIG ARTS for an elegant evening of music Saturday, November 2 for Noahs Concert for the Kids. The star of the evening was local 12 year-old Noah Waddell, performing the concert to benefit the Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida. The nearly sold-out event raised approximately $30,000. Noahs dynamic performance held guests spellbound. In his white tuxedo, Noah treated hospital representatives, event sponsors, and attendees to classical selections from Beethoven, Chopin, Rachmaninoff and Liszt. Local restaurants catered the event by donating desserts, including Cips Place, Sweet Melissas, Doc Fords and Traders Store & Caf. Joe and Linda Mondelli of John R. Wood Island Real Estate, master sponsor of the event, provided beverages. Don Rice, president of BIG ARTS, said, Noah and the event volunteers knocked it out of the park Saturday night. This will be a most remembered event of BIG ARTS season. He and his wife, Joyce, were among the many island sponsors for the event, including City Manager Judie Zimomra and Councilman Marty Harrity. Richard Johnson of Baileys General Store took the stage as the emcee for the event. He and his wife, Mead, were Virtuoso sponsors of the evening, along with Jason and Sherry Huff of Huff Insurance, Julie and Tim ONeill, and Amanda Cross. Cross is one of the founding members of Sanibel-Captiva Cares, the organization founded by a group of island mothers that has focused on fundraising for the Golisano Childrens Hospital since 2000. They have raised over $5 million for the hospital since then. Amanda Cross introduced Kathy Bridge-Liles, chief administrative officer of the Golisano Childrens Hospital. Bridge-Liles began working as a nurse 20 years ago, but most recently served as the interim head of the childrens hospital. She had just been named to the permanent position earlier that week. Other hospital staff in attendance were Susan Ryckman, interim VP patient care Services and Dr. Emad Salman, medical director of Golisano Childrens Hospital. The hospital is quite familiar with Noah, who voluntarily plays every Friday afternoon in the atrium at HealthPark for theArts in Healthcare Program. The new $100 million Golisano Childrens Hospital facility at HealthPark Medical Center on the corner of Summerlin and Bass Roads will provide better specialized care continued on page 38 Noah Waddell performing at BIG ARTS Dr. Emad Salman, Noah Waddell, Kathy Bridge-Liles and Susan Ryckman 2163 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel Island, Fl 33957 Ph: 239.472.0606 3957 P P h h: 2 2 3 39 4720606wwwSanibelIslandCowcom Tropical Outdoor Patio Seating Get Crabby At The Cow Get Crabby At The Cow Get Crabby At The Cow Get Crabby At The Cow with our Famous Stone Crabs1/2 lb & 1 lb. quantities Appetizers & Full Dinners Best Prices On The Planet Fun "new" Moo Wear for all ages Fun "new" Moo Wear for all ages w w Always Fresh ...Always Fun! s s Always Fresh ...Always!

35 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 15, 2013 Brother And Sister Publish Book About Growing Up At South Seasby Jeff LysiakToday, South Seas Plantation is a beautiful, world famous resort. It is host to many celebrities and people from all over the world. But in the 1940s, it was a somewhat primitive working plantation, growing Key limes for markets all over the United States and the world. from Tales From The Rain Barrel Ken Sushil and Rita Sushil Dilks-Wolf, a brother and sister who grew up living on the grounds of the Captiva resort throughout the World War II era, collaborated on a childrens book, which they titled Tales From The Rain Barrel. In this softcover, fully illustrated book, the siblings share some of their favorite stories and the lessons they learned from their childhood. It was such a magical place, said Sushil Dilks-Wolf, whose father, Gerald, Sr., was employed as the plantation manager for more than a decade. We werent the only children who lived there, but we were the youngest children who lived there. According to her brother, it took about eight months of writing, meeting with the books illustrator, Marie Dyer, and going through the editing process before Tales From The Rain Barrel came to fruition. The book, which Sushil said would be appropriate for ages five and up because thats the ages Rita and I were in these stories, includes tales about the family dog, Skipper (also featured on the back cover), fishing with their mother, visiting with soldiers on R&R and harvesting honey. One story they share in the book involves the siblings being sent out in the morning to hunt chickens and collect their eggs. On their way back to the house, Ken who was carrying all of the eggs tripped on a tree root and spilled their entire mornings collection. Upon arriving at the house and telling their mother that all of the eggs had been broken, she simply told her children that they had learned a very important lesson: Never keep all your eggs in one basket. When I told my grandkids bedtime stories, my daughter said to me that I should write these stories down, said Sushil Dilks-Wolf, who resides in San Antonio, Florida. Id tell them stories about a boy named Kenny and a girl named Rita who grew up on this beautiful little island. Tales From The Rain Barrel is available at South Seas Island Resort, Tween Waters Inn and Jensens Twin Palm Resort & Marina. Copies may also be purchased by calling Sushil at 482-7191. It all started out with one rain barrel story, said Sushil, who now lives in Fort Myers. And then somebody told me that it would make a good idea for a book.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 15, 201336 Smiles Abound At Off Broadway Palmby Di SaggauTalk about a crowd-pleasing production. Away in the Basement, A Church Basement Ladies Christmas, fits the bill and then some. Opening night at Off Broadway Palm found the audience smiling from ear to ear and laughing out loud at the antics of the talented cast. Its inspired by the best selling book Growing Up Lutheran and there are lots of Lutheran one-liners and a few funny jabs at Catholics. All in good fun. Its December 1959, the day before the annual Sunday School Christmas program. The play opens with the church pastor, Victor Legarreta, three church ladies and one intern preparing food and decorations for the event. Jennie Hollander is Vivian, a stern-faced widow who does not approve of the widowed pastors interest in Helen, a new member of the church. Kelly Legarreta is Mavis, a farmers wife who can handle just about anything if she doesnt forget about it. ML Graham is Karin, a mom who cant believe her daughter is 15. Lisa Bark is Beverly, her daughter. This is a holiday sequel to the original Church Basement Ladies comedy. As the youngsters rehearse upstairs, the ladies are finishing up goodie bags and touching up nativity pieces. Little do they know what surprises and challenges await them. What adds to the fun is that this is a musical comedy. Victor Legarreta has been part of the Southwest Florida theater scene for years and its always a treat to have the opportunity to hear him sing. The ladies are in fine voice too as they whisk through songs about unforgettable Christmas programs, pinatas and a popular Norwegian Christmas song written in 1859, Jeg er sa glad hver Julerkveld which translates to I am so glad each Christmas Eve. There are references to lutefisk and egg coffee, which brings back strong memories and scents to quite a few people, myself included. Kelly Legarreta handles her role with admirable comic finesse and timing. Her inspection of a piata and the name she comes up with for it are hysterical. Hollander portrays Vivian with great skill. Shes the one in charge of the kitchen and no one better forget it. There is another side to her that is revealed later on. Graham and Bark make the perfect mother-daughter pair. Mom is protective and daughter is growing up. And she does not want to portray Mary in the pageant. This is a show that is perfect for the holidays because its about good old-fashioned church people who care about one another. Its bound to brighten your spirits. Away in the Basement, A Church Basement Ladies Christmas plays through December 25 at The Off Broadway Palm Theatre, 1380 Colonial Boulevard, Fort Myers. For tickets go to www. BroadwayPalm. com or call 2784422. Kelly Lagarreta, ML Graham, Victor Legarreta, Jennie Hollander and Lisa Bark An Enchanted Evening To Benefit Gulfshore BalletAn Enchanted Evening with the Gulfshore Ballet fundraiser will take place on Wednesday, November 20 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Saks Fifth Avenue in the Bell Tower Shops.

37 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 15, 2013 Monday Night MovieRust And Boneby Di SaggauThe BIG ARTS movie for Monday night November 15, is Rust and Bone, an emotional, powerhouse film that details the relationship between an arrogant Marineland trainer of orcas and a brutish street fighter. With Marion Cotillard and Matthias Schoenaerts as stars, and director Jacques Audiard in charge, all the pieces fall exactly into place and bring the story alive. Cotillard plays Stephanie, a woman whose world falls apart when she loses her legs. Schoenaerts is Ali, a former boxer who helps her out of her posttraumatic despair in a way she did not imagine and gives her the courage to go on living. Their relationship is complicated and the two actors make it a strong, emotionally satisfying experience. The orca that maimed Stephanie was a creature behaving according to its nature. The digital removal of her legs, including scenes in which she wears a bathing suit, is one of the most impressive special-effects feat of the year. But it is Cotillard herself, an actress of limitless bravery and poise, who is both beauty and beast. Rust and Bone is a tour de force of directorial button pushing. Audiard is excellent at manipulating the audiences feelings and expectations with quick edits and well-chosen songs. The film concerns itself primarily with the social realities of contemporary France. It is about the unlikely bond that forms between two damaged souls and the battered bodies that house them. Admission to BIG ARTS Monday Night Film Series is $8 and all screenings begin at 7 p.m. in Schein Performance Hall. Each film is followed by a complimentary reception and discussion in Phillips Gallery. Sponsors are Bank of the Islands and Stan and Visnja Gembicki. Supporters are Sanibel Taxi, Jerrys Foods of Sanibel and John R. Wood Real Estate. BIG ARTS is located at 900 Dunlop Road. Tickets are available by calling 395-0900, online at or via email: Poets Corner selected by Tanya HochschildWild Woods, Wild Firesby John H. DannerI.

2B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 15, 2013 Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellThey are definitely back. Our amazing snowbirds have arrived and with them a highoctane increase in activity on the island. In the last few weeks our club attendance has almost doubled and the morning introductions and club business activities have taken up more than the usual time, cutting into our speaker time. Last weeks speaker was Mark Bird Westall. He has been on the island for over 30 years and was our mayor for a year. He is determined to protect our unique environment through educating the general public. The way he has chosen to do this is by running canoe adventures and exposing the hidden bountiful beauty of our natural surroundings. Westall cut back his talk a little because of time restraints and just focused on the formation of the Sanibel River. As he does with his guided canoe tours of the area, he begins by setting his personal canoe as sort of a compass rose for the expeditions and explained the locations of the components contributing to the formation of the river. Sanibel is one of the only barrier islands in the world that has interior surface freshwater wetlands. Island wetlands cover 1,200 acres and drain into the Sanibel River. But sorry folks, the Sanibel River is not really a river. It is slough, or low area between ridges on the Gulf of Mexico and Pine Island Sound. Originally, the slough was fed by water collected on a series of low-lying swales and ridges after extended periods of rain with only a couple of run out exits, one being Kinzie Island on the east end of the Sanibel. Two of the main ridges are the mid-island ridge and gulf beach ridge. He told us that when Francis Bailey used to talk about being at the old Bailey homestead on San Carlos Bay and being able to see the Gulf of Mexico, that absolutely was the truth the low-lying slough existed between the bay and gulf and at times would flood but the locals only took that in stride. The mosquito population was bountiful and the over the years, the slough was dredged for mosquito control and to provide fill for development; channels were connected to create the river which now holds water all year. Water levels are controlled by weirs at Tarpon Bay and Beach roads. As you paddle and glide down the Sanibel Rivers interior fresh water habitat and through its mangrove canopies, Westall relates information about this very special environment and will help identify the many species of birds and wildlife. This is the quiet nature of Sanibel and a morning or afternoon spent with him will give you respect and appreciation for this very special part of Sanibel. Rotarian Roger Olsen has taken this canoe trip and highly recommends it. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary will soon be setting up a booth at the Sunday morning farmers market and selling its specially designed holiday cards. Please stop by and take a look. All proceeds are earmarked for special Rotary projects. Last years was to help purchase wheelchairs for distribution in Jamaica. Rotarian John Grey helped deliver and distribute those wheelchairs just this month. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets at 7 a.m. every Friday at The Dunes Golf and Tennis Club, 949 Sand Castle Road.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 15, 201310B Minella Wins In Straight Sets To Capture Pro Classic On CaptivaIn Sundays singles finals at the Womens Pro Classic at South Seas Island Resort, Captiva, #2 seed Mandy Minella of Luxembourg defeated Canadian Gabriela Dabrowski in straight sets 6-3, 6-3 to capture the inaugural event of the $50,000 USTA Pro Circuit Womens Event. With professional tennis making its debut on Captiva this week, it was the final opportunity for players to obtain WTA Tour points in the U.S. to qualify for the 2014 Australian Open and thats exactly what Minella accomplished this week. This tournament was really important for me to win because now I am going to get directly into the Singles Main Draw of the Australian Open in January, said Minella. The Womens Pro Classic at South Seas was a perfect place to play a pro circuit event with all of the amenities and activities, I felt like I was on holiday half of the time I was here. Singles finalist Gabriela Dabrowski of Canada was also the doubles champion in Saturdays doubles finals with partner Allie Will (who were seeded #1) and topped American duo Julia Boserup and Alexandra Mueller 6-1, 6-2 to claim the title. Also making a special appearance at the Womens Pro Classic Singles Final on Sunday was U.S. Open Tournament Director Brian Earley, who joined Captivas tournament director, Nick Blackwood, in the awards presentation ceremony. I was very excited about how well the Womens Pro Classic went for our first year and all of the community support and involvement we had, I am already looking forward to next years event, said Blackwood. It was great to see so many of the top ranked WTA Tour players come to a first year event at South Seas Island Resort and also see that our event made a major impact on one of the players who will now get directly into the Australian Open Main Draw in January. Others who also played in the Womens Pro Classic this year included American tennis stars Melanie Oudin (who has been ranked as high as #31 in the WTA Tour singles rankings) and is known for her thrilling run at the 2009 US Open where she defeated Maria Sharapova to advance to the quarter finals along with Victoria Duval who captured the hearts of Americans at the 2013 U.S. Open this summer after defeating Grand Slam Singles Champion Sam Stosur in the first round. In addition to this, Taylor Townsend also played on Captiva this week and has had breakthrough junior accomplishments on her way to playing the USTA Pro Circuit events including the Junior Australian Open Singles Championship in 2012 and finishing the year ranked number one in Girls Singles Junior ITF World rankings. The womens pro classic was held November 3-10 at the Pavel & Blackwood Tennis Academy at South Seas. Throughout the week, the Womens Pro Classic showcased world class tennis by bringing the games emerging and future tennis stars to the area while benefiting three local philanthropic causes the Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida, Madisens Match and Partners for Breast Cancer Care. This years title sponsor is the South Seas Island Resort with Doc Fords Rum Bar and Grille as the presenting sponsor.

Pete Mindel went 4-0 for the Caf guys and captain Richard McCurry, John Earle and Joe Mason pitched in with three wins each to add to the slaughter. Sanibel Caf takes on the basementdwelling Fresh Legion Crew next Monday and is looking to take over first place from the Ball Busters. Bunts Ball Busters edged second place Odd Balls 9-7 to barely hang on to top standing in the league. The Ball Busters were paced by four masterful wins by their ace, Rich Ennis.

Gary Murza, Jack Cunningham and Tom Walters opened with three wins each as their Island Lifer team took a 9-3 lead in their match against Fresh Legion Crew. The Lifers ended up with a 9-7 squeaker when the Legions captain, Gator Gates, racked up four straight wins over Lifer captain Connie Lee.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 15, 201314B Sanibel Island Golf ClubMens League ScrambleOn Saturday, November 9 the mens league at Sa nibel Island Golf Club played a 4-person scramble. The scoring was a little different than in the past. They took 50 percent of the lowest handicap player in the foursome and subtracted that amount from the final score. The winners, with a score of 54.5, were Barry Humphries, Jim Sauer, Guy Tober and Tom Rathbone. Humphries had the lowest handicap of 11 so they got to deduct 5.5 strokes from their final score. They had no bogies and seven birdies for a very good round. When asked how they accomplished such a feat, they all said everyone contributed to either a great putt or a chip closest to the hole. The old adage of drive for show and putt for dough must be true. In second place was the foursome of Jim Mulka, Dick Codair, Dick Waterhouse and Richard Chocol with a score of 56. In third place with 56.5 was the team of Bob Hodosky, David Lewis, Bill Daly and John Gillespie. All the scores for all 10 foursomes were very close. The golf was followed by luncheon at the new Blue Cayote restaurant at the Sanibel Island Golf Club.

15B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 15, 2013 Bullying Is The Latest Scandal To Hit Professional Sportsby Ed FrankThe never-ending sage of violence in professional sports boiled over this past week involving the Miami Dolphins football team in an issue heretofore centered in the classroom bullying. Perhaps it should come as no surprise that Dolphins guard Richie Incognito, voted by fellow NLF players as the dirtiest player in football, is in the middle of the scandalous issue having been suspended indefinitely by Miami while the NFL investigates the matter. Incognitos alleged bullying resulted in fellow lineman Jonathan Martin fleeing the team saying that Incognito bullied him by leaving racist and threatening voice mails, emails and texts. Of course, the 300-pound Incognito downplays the entire issue saying it was all locker room antics that is prevalent throughout professional football. It has been well documented that rookie hazing has long been tolerated in the NFL even to the point where rookies have been forced to pick up $30,000 dinner tabs for veterans. But this is the first time that a player left a team in fear of his life and his familys well-being. We find that Incognito was kicked off the Nebraska football team for inappropriate conduct and just a few days ago the Dolphins confirmed that he was investigated last year for allegedly harassing a female volunteer at the teams annual golf tournament. The team investigated that incident and reported we took immediate action, not saying what that action was. How this all plays out and whether Martin and Incognito return to the Dolphins will be watched closely. Bullying has been a serious problem in schools and in the workplace. And it should not be tolerated or excused in professional sports as mere locker room hazing. Lets see how serious the NFL is and what it does to curb bullying. Mauer Moves to First Base to Prevent Injuries The Minnesota Twins announced Monday that All-Star catcher Joe Mauer will move from behind the plate to the first-base in order to preserve his health. After consultation with doctors from the Mayo Clinic and team doctors, and given the inherent risks of future injury at the catcher position, the organization and Joe determined that it would be in the best interest of both him and the Twins for a position change, the Twins said in a statement. He suffered a concussion on a foul tip off his mask August 19 and did not play the remainder of last season. The Twins said he is now symptom-free and has begun his off-season conditioning. Mauer batted .324 last season in 113 games and earned an American League Silver Slugger Award. He previously has played 56 games at first base committing just four errors. Having traded their All-Star first-baseman Justin Morneau, the Twins obviously are in need of a big bat at that position. Everblades Start Week with 8-1-1-1 Record Beginning a Four-Game Road Trip The Florida Everblades are on the road for four games, two at Gwinnett, one at South Carolina and one at Orlando before returning to home ice next Saturday against Orlando. With a season-starting record of 8-1-1-1, Florida began the week in second place in the ECHL South Division trailing South Carolina by two points.

Youll do better focusing on just a few tasks rather than spreading yourself too thin. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your heart might be leading you in one direction, but pay attention to your keen Bovine intellect. Im cautioning you to think things through before making any commitments. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your serious Twin has been dominant in your life for quite a while. Its time now to let that wilder half take you out for some good times -perhaps with someone very special. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Career aspects are high for Moon Children who make a good impression. Show people not only what you can already do, but also how you can be more valuable to them in the future. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Things start to brighten for the Lions immediate financial future. But be careful to resist the urge to splurge. You need to tuck something away to help you through another tight period. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Having to do too many tasks in too short a time could lower your mood to just above the grumbling level. But if you handle things one at a time, youll get through it all soon enough. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your usually carefully made holiday plans could be subject to change later this month. Use this week to prepare for that possibility by starting a Plan B just in case you need it. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Be careful about joining a colleagues plan to solve a workplace problem. Investigate it thoroughly. Otherwise, you could find yourself in a predicament with other associates. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Slow down that high-paced whirl youve been on. Spending quiet time alone or with people you care for can be both physically and spiritually restorative. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Make suggestions, not demands. Youll be more successful in getting people to follow your lead if you exercise quiet patience instead of strong persuasion to get your ideas across. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You still need more facts before you can make an informed career choice. One note of caution: Be careful about whom you ask for that information; otherwise, you could be misled. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Changing situations through the end of the week could lead to some challenging opportunities for those perspicacious Pisceans who know how to make them work to their advantage. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a way of being both daring and cautious, traits that could make you a research scientist or maybe even a rocket-ship designer. On Nov. 18, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln boards a train for Gettysburg, Pa., to deliver a short speech at the dedication of a cemetery. The Gettysburg Address became one of the most famous speeches in American history. On Nov. 21, 1927, Time magazine puts the week-old Holland Tunnel on its cover. The tunnel, which runs under the Hudson River between New York City and Jersey City, N.J., requires 84 ventilating fans that replace all the air in the tunnel every 90 seconds. On Nov. 23, 1936, legendary Mississippi Delta bluesman Robert Johnson is recorded for the very first time in a San Antonio recording studio. He spent only five days in the studio, recording 41 total takes of 29 different songs. Almost immediately, Johnsons recordings gained a cult following among blues collectors. On Nov. 24, 1947, the House of Representatives votes to approve citations of contempt against 10 Hollywood writers, directors and producers. These men had refused to cooperate at hearings dealing with communism in the movie industry. Hollywood quickly established the so-called blacklist, and those on the list rarely found work in the movies. On Nov. 20, 1955, Bo Diddley introduced himself and his namesake beat with his debut on The Ed Sullivan Show. Diddley opened his appearance with his song Bo Diddley. Sullivan had expected him to perform Ernie Fords Sixteen Tons, and he was furious enough to ban Diddley from future appearances on his show. On Nov. 19, 1976, Patty Hearst is released on bail pending the appeal of her conviction for participating in a 1974 San Francisco bank robbery that was caught on camera. Hearst had been kidnapped months before the robbery by members of the Symbionese Liberation Army. On Nov. 22, 1986, 20-year-old Mike Tyson knocks out Trevor Berbick in just five minutes and 35 seconds to become the youngest titleholder ever. Tyson kept his title for nine more bouts. After that, his life unraveled when he was sent to prison for three years. It was the ever-proper Emily Post who made the following sage observation: Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what fork you use. During the Dark Ages in Europe, it was a common belief that the soul of the first person to be buried in a new graveyard would belong to the devil. If youre planning a trip to Washington state anytime soon, you might want to head to Olympic National Park and take the Spruce Railroad Trail up to Lake Crescent, a 600-foot deep mountain lake. It has a rather spooky history, with Bigfoot sightings and numerous accounts of ghosts and inexplicable sounds in the nearby woods. The native Kallam Indians refused to fish in the lake for fear of stirring up the evil spirits that resided there. Lake Crescent also is the setting for the Lady of the Lake. It seems that in 1940, two local fishermen (not afraid of evil spirits, it seems) found a body there. It turned out to be the remains of one Hallie Illingworth, a waitress who had disappeared in 1937. Her husband had murdered her, weighted her body down and disposed of it in the depths of the lake. But it was those very depths -or, more accurately, the cold water in those depths -that preserved the body almost perfectly and made identification possible three years after her death. Those who study such things say that 40 percent of all modern Chinese people are descended from just three men (dubbed super-grandfathers) during the Neolithic period. In the United States there is more space where nobody is than where anybody is. Thats what makes America what it is. -Gertrude Stein THIS WEEK IN HISTORY STRANGE BUT TRUE THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 15, 201324B School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My high school senior son is very stressed out about the college process. He wants to apply to college and the then the next minute, he says that he wants to take a year off and wander in Alaska for a while. I dont know how to help him, what to encourage and figure out what he wants. What can I do? David G., Fort Myers David, The senior year of high school is not for sissies it is a very difficult and stressful year for most students and their parents. Kids are under a lot of pressures these days to achieve at incredibly high standards and are facing the looming unknown of their future, but parents can help to de-stress their children. First of all, watch carefully for signs of strain. Some kids can handle all the activities that go along with the college process, but others need some help to get through it. If you see that your child is feeling overwhelmed, may seem irritable, depressed or exhausted or their schoolwork is suffering, its time to step in and insist that your teenager relax a bit. It might mean giving up an activity, reducing part-time work hours, not go to every weekend party and more, but they need that extra down time to relax and renew themselves. Make sure that you are serving healthy meals and that your teen is getting enough sleep. You might even suggest (strongly) that they leave their technological devices by the door at bedtime. In fact, it may be a relief for them to do so and could provide an easy way to save face for your teen by saying that my parents are making me do this. Take some time to sit down with your teen and examine both yours and his expectations. Are they realistic? If he loves the outdoors and survival camping, maybe he should go to Alaska. Is he really a good student or is it always a crazy push to stay off of academic probation every year? What are his strengths and weaknesses? While it is very exciting to say I got accepted to such and such college, if he isnt a great student maybe he does need some time to think about his life and what he wants to achieve. There are many young people who dont come into their own until later in life. They may try their hand at working for a few years, and then go to college. Its never too late to go back to school and real world experiences can make a huge difference in career decision-making. The key here is that your son has a plan even if its short term or not the ambition you would have chosen for him. All of us progress through life at our own pace and according to our own timetable. Some kids know from a young age whatcontinued on page 28BBoat ShowThe 41st annual Fort Myers Boat Show at Harborside Event Center and City of Fort Myers Yacht Basin returns from Thursday, November 14 through Sunday, November 17, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 15, 201326B Superior InteriorsLights! Camera! Action! by Marcia FeeneyWhen the sun sets, and the lights are turned on in your rooms, do you see dark corners, or too much brightness? Lighting is a functional yet wonderful way to accessorize your room. But how much light is needed to make the room useable by day or night is often a homeowners greatest dilemma. Interior lighting falls into three basic categories. Mixing these types of lighting into your rooms overall design plan will definitely add drama and ambiance. General Lighting: Basically, this type of lighting is considered indirect. Lighting such as track lighting or chandeliers would fall into this overall category. This type of lighting bounces off walls and ceilings and provides an overall, general illumination to your rooms. Task Lighting: This type of lighting does exactly what it says provides the necessary illumination for specific tasks or jobs you enjoy doing in your rooms, such as reading, cooking, hobbies or computer work. Pendant lamps over a kitchen countertop would be a definite asset if cooking is your passion. An attractive table lamp would be the perfect choice for the avid reader. Accent Lighting: This type of lighting is purely decorative. Perhaps a uniquely designed torchiere lamp would provide the perfect up light for a dark corner. Accent lighting is generally placed in a room to call attention to the rooms appealing aspects. With the myriad of lighting choices available today, there is simply no need to be in the dark about lighting. With the right lighting plan, you can make even an average room look spectacular, disguise flaws and emphasize assets. Marcia Feeney is an interior designer on Sanibel/Captiva Islands.

Craig Panneton, president of the ACF Southwest Florida Chapter, recommended Brown for his work with the chapter members in advancing them through the ranks of certification. Panneton said, Brown took the challenge of developing two test sites in Lee County and pushing three chefs to receive ACE evaluator status, and developed a three-day workshop to prepare chapter members for the exams to become a CEC, CCC, CSC, etc. More than 1,500 chefs, cooks, students and foodservice professionals attended the annual event. Attendees were provided with numerous opportunities to advance their professional development and enhance their culinary skills through information workshops and seminars, cutting-edge demonstrations, a trade show featuring more than 115 exhibitors, national competitions and ACFs annual national awards. The ACF has more than 20,000 members spanning 200 chapters nationwide. I believe they are the leader in offering educational resources, training, apprenticeships and programmatic accreditation. ACF operates the most comprehensive certification program for chefs in the United States. It is an honor and a privilege to be a part of this organization, said Brown. I am an advocate for continuing education and encouraging others to become certified. In tandem, the members at The Sanctuary Golf Club do as well. Simply put, Chef (Brown) continues his culinary journey to improve all aspects of the culinary program for the members at The Sanctuary Golf Club and we are all very proud of him, said Ken Kouril, general manager of The Sanctuary Golf Club.

28B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 15, 2013 Commentary From The Trust Companyby Craig J. HolstonEarlier this year, Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke introduced the term taper to Congress and the investing public. Bernanke let us know that in the minds of the Fed, the U.S. economy had shown enough improvement to merit a slowdown in the bond buying program known as quantitative easing. Investors immediate reaction was good news is bad news, as the fear of potentially higher interest rates outweighed the better economic news. Equities sold off in the month of June, and bond yields rose dramatically. As the third quarter of 2013 began, however, investors seemed to realize that better news on the economic front actually can translate to better news for corporate profits. This was reflected in higher equity prices, as the total return of the Standard and Poors 500 index was 5 percent in the three months ending September 30. Even more telling was the outperformance of growth-oriented sectors of the equity markets, with the industrials and consumer discretionary sectors leading the way with returns of over 7 percent for the quarter. Materials companies also performed well, along with energy, which rose 6 percent in the third quarter. The lagging sectors, although still positive for the quarter, were utilities and consumer staples companies, whose dividends may be seen as less competitive as interest rates potentially rise in the future. As we look to build diversified equity portfolios going forward, it makes sense for us to underweight these names and overweight growth-oriented companies that can take advantage of an improving economy. Investors also looked to the international equity markets, which had struggled in the first half of 2013. Signs of recovery in developed Europe, along with lower relative valuations, has made these investments attractive. Although we recognize that headlines related to Middle East turmoil adds to the volatility of foreign markets, we continue to recommend a meaningful allocation to international equities, including exposure to emerging markets for long-term, growth-oriented portfolios. A volatile fixed-income market resulted in essentially no return for bond investors both in the third quarter and year to date, as principal losses offset low current income yields. We would need to see substantially higher yields before recommending new bond purchases, partially because we realize that many investors require a higher level of income from their portfolios. For those individuals, we continue to find higher income alternatives, including preferred stocks and, for taxable accounts, master limited partnerships. The goal is to provide steady income streams along with below-market volatility. When we look at the positive performance of equities so far in 2013, we are reminded that future returns on an investment have more to do with the price you pay than with sentiment or political headlines.

29B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 15, 2013 What happens when a man dies with a will or a revocable trust that was originally created by an attorney, but later that man apparently removed some of the pages and replaced them with new pages containing different provisions? Those pages have handwritten changes scratched through them in several places, and were not witnessed in accordance with the statutory requirements. Ill tell you what happens. The estate becomes a bloody mess. Believe it or not, Ive seen this scenario play out several times. I can only guess that when people try to self-amend their legal documents, they think that its easy to do and that theres no reason to pay a qualified lawyer to get it done properly. In order for a will or trust (or an amendment to a will or trust) to be legal, the testator must sign it at the end, and the testators signature must be witnessed by two individuals who sign in the presence of the testator and in each others presence. So when a man rips out a page of his trust, and types a new page to insert instead, he has not complied with the statutory legal requirements to properly amend his trust. This makes sense when you think about it. How does anyone know whether the pages that were removed and replaced really those of the testator? Thats why we have laws governing the signing of testamentary documents. So what happens when pages are replaced? Thats when litigation commonly arises between beneficiaries. Assuming that the original pages of the trust (or will) or copies of them can be found, the beneficiary who would most benefit from the old provisions (before they were ripped out and replaced) will argue before a court that since the new amendment was invalidly executed, the old provisions should be resurrected and enforced. Another beneficiary may argue that since the testator ripped out the old page, he intended to revoke that provision and that the document should be read as if the old provisions werent ever included. Since the new provisions inserted werent validly executed, theyll look to the rest of the document to see who should get what. But lets say that in so examining the documents that there is a gaping hole. Assume for example that the man ripped out the provision that says to leave 25 percent of his estate to his sister. He replaced that provision with one that directs a 25 percent bequest to his church, but the new provisions werent validly executed.The provisions he left alone direct a 25 percent bequest to his son and a 50 percent bequest to his wife. So if we assume that he intended to revoke the 25 percent gift to his sister, but that the 25 percent gift to the church wasnt signed correctly, who is entitled to that 25 percent.Here, there are a number of legal theories that may apply. One is called the doctrine of dependent relative revocation. Under this theory, the man intended for his sister to reclaim the 25 percent if the provision for the church was found to be invalid, as it likely will be. This court may follow this theory if the trust or will prior to the one he destroyed gave his sister 25 percent as well. But lets assume that his sister did not appear in any prior version of his will or trust. In that case, there are at least two alternative solutions a court may find. The first solution would be to declare the man to have died intestate (without a will) as to the 25 percent. Here, the Florida intestacy statutes would say who is to receive the 25 percent. If the man was survived by his spouse and not by any minor children, and if his children are the children of his spouse, then his spouse would likely receive the 25 percent. But lets say that the mans prior trust gave the 25 percent to his brother. Here, the brother may use the doctrine of dependent relative revocation to claim the amounts as his. Depending upon the sons relation to the mans spouse, the son may also have a claim to some or all of the 25 percent.You can clearly see where all of this is going. The church is likely to hire a lawyer to argue their rights to the share, although it would have the least likely chance of prevailing. The spouse, brother, sister and son would also have a potential claim to at least some portion of the 25 percent in question under various legal theories, so each of them would likely hire a lawyer to argue their case before the judge. Under Florida law, the estate would likely be obligated to pay all of these legal fees from the various claimants.The poor judge has one big headache. The lawyers have a lot of work to do (and hence a lot of fees to collect from the estate) including reviewing prior wills and trusts, and taking depositions of family members and of the lawyers who drew the trusts. Each lawyer will try to build a case that would prove the mans intent as benefitting that lawyers client. This courtroom drama could drag on for years before being settled or resolved. As Im sure one can now see, the man would have saved his family and his estate a great deal of aggravation and expense if he had only hired a qualified lawyer to help him amend his legal documents in the first place.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 15, 201330B 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, During the holidays, we decided one night to go to the movies. As we approached the two available seats, I could not help but notice the three people sitting in the seats closest to me. A severely obese father, his very fat daughter who was about 10 years old and his wife who was at least 80 pounds overweight. Just before the movie was to begin, the wife started to drink her colossal soda, followed by two boxes of chocolate covered raisins, then she opened a box of cookies and shared them with her child and husband. She consumed calories during the entire movie. She was really working hard on her apparent plan to become grossly obese. Please share with me what is happening to some of the boomer generation? Cathryn Dear Cathryn, Based on the diet industry, I dont think obesity is limited to the boomer generation. Good health habits of proper nutrition and exercise are a day-to-day lifelong commitment. There are many who can make the commitment and many who cannot. My heart goes out to the overweight kids of the world, whose parents are not setting good examples or teaching good habits. Kids can be cruel to overweight peers. Pryce Dear Cathryn, Many seniors also over-indulge and gain weight. Some seniors have limited ability to move due to arthritis and other medical conditions. Their main source of entertainment revolves around food. Food becomes their pleasure and they want to enjoy themselves. Children who are overweight can become obese in adulthood and face many problems. Their insurance premiums are two to four times higher. They have higher medical bills, face job discrimination, do not become candidates for job promotion, have shorter life spans, along with the possibility of diabetes and becoming blind. Unfortunately, many people live to eat, rather than eat to live. Lizzie Lizzie and Pryces email address is Got A Problem? Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: Is it true that there are calming foods to reduce stress?A: Yes, there are foods that you can eat that will assist is calming stress. Some of these foods include: 1. Blueberries. They are loaded with antioxidants which counteract the effects of stress hormones like cortisol in your body. 2. Spinach. This leafy green vegetable contains magnesium which is known to reduce the effects of stress in your body. 3. Oatmeal. While this carb contains serotonin, a calming hormone that helps fight anxietys negative effects which is probably why many of us crave them when were stressed. Go with the craving and choose healthy sources. Oatmeal is high in fiber, which means that your body will absorb it slowly. In one fell swoop, youll prolong the serotonin boost, keeping yourself feeling full for longer (and on less) and making sure your blood sugars in check. 4. Salmon. This food contains omega 3 fatty acids and also contains serotonin, the calming hormone that helps reduce anxiety. an omega-3-rich diet can also help suppress the production of the anxiety hormones cortisol and adrenaline. 5. For you chocolate lovers, dark chocolate is high in flavonoids, which are lauded for their relaxing properties (chamomile tea is another great source), chocolate also contains phenethylamine, a chemical that enhances your mood. The darker the chocolate, the more healthy substances youre getting in your diet, so look for bars that are 70 percent cacao or higher. These are just a few foods that can help keep you calm and relaxed. You may want to explore more with a nutritionist or dietition for a more detailed list of calming foods. by Karen L. Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAMLStomach (Yang) receives the food we ingest, decides what nutrients to keep and then transports this energy to spleen (Yin), who converts it to energy (chi) and blood, to nourish the entire system. This digestive process is pretty important. So, if ST is imbalanced, one cant assimilate nutrients needed to strengthen the body, mind and spirit resulting in a weak energy level. The importance of nutrition is imperative. One may experience bloating, gastrointestinal pain, nausea, acid reflux, allergies, bags under the eyes; breast issues, digestive issues, fallopian tube issues; hunger frequently, laryngitis; lumps, mouth and lip sores, neck pain, nervous tension, ovary issues, sinus issues, stomach aches, ulcers or weight issues. As a reminder, view the August 9 and 16 columns, since the basics of tracing are set forth. ST meridians high tide is 7 to 9 a.m. We always begin and end by tracing Central and Governing meridians before starting to trace the other meridians. If you begin tracing your meridians at 7 30 a.m., then begin with ST. Although it is best to trace all your meridians as one continuous flow, you may want to trace ST if you have some of the symptoms listed in the opening paragraph or if one is meddlesome, has sugar cravings, shows obsessive worry or is co-dependent. Affirmation for this meridian is, I trust the mystery of life. Remembering that matter follows energy, stating a positive thought shifts the energy just by the intention this is the metaphysical fabric of life. We are all part of that pure fabric of existence so reap its benefits. Pathway of meridian: Do both sides at the same time. Place both hands underneath your eyes, trace down to your jawbone and then circle the outside of your face up to your forehead; bring your hands directly over the middle of your eyes to the collarbone; follow the collarbone outward several inches; now go straight down over your breasts; jog in at the bottom of the ribs straight down to the waist; flare out at the hips and then straight down the front of your legs and off the second toe. Thats it. You just traced Stomach meridian. See the insert. Flushing or Tracing the Meridian Backwards: Remember that if there is too much energy in a meridian, you may want to trace it backwards and see if that makes you feel better. If experiencing pain or disease in the area of a meridian, it is likely that removing the energy from the meridian will provide relief. If it does, then trace it backwards three times, but never trace heart backwards. If it seems there is not enough energy in your meridian then trace it forward three times. If you feel better, this is what was needed. Experience the impact of the energetic shifts. To flush a meridian, as if you are de-clogging a pipe, trace the meridian once backwards to loosen the sludge and then trace the meridian forward three times. Flushing really helps reset the meridians balance. You are set. Keep this column as a reminder of how to trace Stomach while you learn the last meridian next week.

31B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 15, 2013 deaRPharmacistLow Testosterone A Risk Factor For Heart Attackby Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: I have a bedroom problem. I took Viagra for several years and it stopped working, so I was put on Cialis. Sometimes that helps, sometimes not. Im too embarrassed to ask my doctor again. She says this is a part of aging because I am 58. Any suggestions? TM, Bethesda, Maryland I have many! Im stunned that shes never mentioned bio-identical hormone replacement for you, as in testosterone or T. The reason most men develop erectile dysfunction in the first place is because they are low in their natural manly hormone, which starts to decline with age. The declining T causes a relative increase in circulating estrogen, a hormone found in higher concentrations in women. Restoring testosterone or T puts balance back, so its best my recommendation for increasing mojo. Giving a man one of those super sex pills like Viagra, Levitra or Cialis is the equivalent of jump starting the car every two miles, rather than just fixing the battery. Why do men medicate themselves every weekend, when they can fix the root cause by balancing hormones? Its a good question isnt it? A good physician should evaluate your hormones and neurotransmitters and decipher if its low testosterone, low dopamine, high cortisol, high estrogen, low progesterone, high insulin, low DHEA or oxytocin. If youre a man or a woman, and youve lost that lovin feelin thats what you need to evaluate and replenish. Prescribed sex pills, as useful as they are, cant balance hormones. Theres another reason I get hot under the collar about this topic. Men are dying every day from heart attack and stroke that may have been prevented. The clue that youre headed for trouble is erectile dysfunction. Think that out, its not hard to understand if the blood isnt effectively flowing down south to your penis, it isnt flowing up north either, to your heart. The blood vessels are clogged and that could cause erectile dysfunction years before a massive heart attack occurs. What does conventional medicine do? Prescribe a quick fixer upper, so you can have a night of fun, instead of helping you clear your arteries, improve vessel flexibility, correct hormonal imbalances and manage cholesterol (they dont even measure it correctly but thats another column). I think there is an incomplete knowledge or understanding of physiology or hormones because sex pills should not be your go-to drug for erectile dysfunction. You think its just me saying that to alarm you? Not a chance, I would never scare you, thats not how I roll. A study published in March 2010 in Circulation concluded, Erectile dysfunction is a potent predictor of all-cause death and the composite of cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction, stroke, and heart failure in men with cardiovascular disease. Theres no doubt, low testosterone is a risk factor for heart attack. Replacement therapy is controversial. Some studies suggest the very use of testosterone increases heart attack risk, but I find flaws with those studies. Balance is key.

Race For Cure Seeks VolunteersThe Southwest Florida affiliate of Susan G. Komen is seeking volunteers for the Race for the Cure committee. The race takes place on March 8 at Coconut Point Mall in Estero, and planning is under way. Volunteers are needed to contact sponsors, organize teams, plan survivor events and help with race day organization and implementation. The committee meets once a month at the offices of Susan G. Komen Southwest Florida at 26800 S. Tamiami Trail, Suite 210 in Bonita Springs. Additional meetings may be scheduled more frequently in the two weeks leading up to the race. In 1982, Nancy Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. As part of that promise, the Race for the Cure series was developed as a means to fund education, research and early detection of breast cancer. In 2013 the Southwest Florida Affiliate of Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure was able to grant more than $600,000 in funds in the five-county area for mammograms, ultrasounds and breast health education.

The effort started back in April, when local homeless providers were invited to join the 100,000 Campaign to house 100,000 homeless veterans nationwide by the end of December 2013. Local providers committed to housing 50 homeless veterans in 90 days. By the time the 90-day period ended, 52 homeless veterans found housing. So in July, the same local groups committed to housing another 50 to reach 100 by the end of December. So far, 67 veterans have been housed with another 33 to go to reach the goal. There are 20 veterans in the system currently looking for housing. The team teleconferences with each other every other week to identify program glitches and individual barriers to a veteran getting placed into stable housing. An innovative aspect of the team includes a partnership with the American Legion Post 38 for veterans to be with other veterans for support. Post 38 also secures and disburses household items to homeless veterans as they transition into their new life. Lee County Human Services is housed in a downtown building shared by Lee County Veterans Services at 2440 Thompson Street, Fort Myers, FL 33901. Veterans can call 533-8381. The motto for my office is, Every day is Veterans Day, said John Ebling, director of Veterans Services for Lee County. Our primary mission is to assist veterans or the widows of veterans with claims on different benefits. On average, Ebling sees 100 new clients each month. Many clients also arrive at Veterans Services seeking assistance with rent, utility bills and more, and he refers these individuals to Lee County Human Services for help. Read us online at

My name is Gretchen and I am a domestic, two-yearold female brown tabby. Gretchen was a young mother when she came to the shelter. She spent a couple of months in a foster home with her kittens and was an excellent mother. Her foster mom reports that she is a very gentle, easy-going cat with a good disposition. She loves to be handled and doesnt even mind having her nails clipped. She gets along fine with dogs too and would do well in a multi-pet household. Adoption fee: $20 during Animal Services Petsgiving adoption promotion For information about this weeks pets, call 5337387 (LEE-PETS) or log on to Animal Services website at When calling, refer to the animals ID number. The website updates every hour so you will be able to see if these or any other pets are still available. The shelter is open for adoptions from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The shelter is located at 5600 Banner Drive, Fort Myers, next to the Lee County Sheriffs Office, off Six Mile Cypress Parkway. All adoptions include spay/neuter surgery, ageappropriate vaccinations, rabies vaccination and county license if three months or older, flea treatment, worming, heartworm test for dogs six months and over, feline AIDS and leukemia test for cats, training DVD, 10-day health guarantee, and a bag of Science Diet pet food. The adoption package is valued at $500. Gretchen ID# 573060 Jezabella ID# 573955 photos by Mindy PAWS PetsMeet Mindy, a young female cat in need of a forever home. She was found in a parking lot living in the wheel well of a car. We are looking for her owner, but she may not have one because her clipped ear is consistent with the trap/spay and release program. She is shy at first, but very sweet. Call Pam at PAWS at 472-4823 for more information about Mindy. Rambo PAWS PetsThree-year-old Rambo needs a forever home. PAWS of Sanibel believes he belonged to someone before because he is very sweet and he has been neutered. His right canine protrudes, but that just adds to his charm and good looks. He is friendly with other cats, but it would be best if he was the only cat in the home. Call Pam at PAWS at 472-4823 for more information about adopting Rambo.
