ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 29, 20138 Spotlight On CHRsubmitted by Claudia BurnsRobyn Moran, realtor and island resident, is one of the quiet heroes of Sanibel and Community Housing & Resources (CHR). She served on the CHR board of directors from 2011-13, chaired the Landlord Tenant Committee and helped organize two successful 2013 fundraisers: the inaugural Mardi Gras and a golf tournament, raising over $17,000 for vital operating funds. She uses her specialized knowledge for such tasks as rewriting the resident manual and tenant lease. Executive Director Kelly Collini said, It is rare to have a volunteer able to work at the policy level, yet also willing to get in the trenches to do the hands-on work that we so often need. Moran conducts annual inspections of CHRs 74 rental properties, checking both exterior and interior spaces. She looks out for the elderly residents, making referrals for extra support or services. To brighten the lives of senior citizens residing at Casa Mariposa, she organized an ice-cream social and convinced Sanibels own Danny Morgan to provide entertainment. As president-elect of the Zonta Club of Sanibel-Captiva, which supports CHR financially, Moran serves as a liaison with CHR, securing grants to help female residents further their education or pursue home ownership. Collini added: Robyn sees a need and then finds a way to address it with little or no funding CHR is fortunate to have a person with such a good mind and good heart working on our behalf. She gives freely of her time for no other reason than to be a good neighbor and help make sure that there is a place for everyone in the community. Community Housing and Resources is a non-profit organization that partners with the City of Sanibel to provide affordable housing for families and individuals who work in and/or serve the community of Sanibel. CHR administers housing for 162 island residents in 10 rental complexes plus 14 limited-equity ownership homes throughout Sanibel, facilitating a local workforce for island businesses and ensuring economic diversity in our community. CHR relies on private donations to supplement income from renters and limited-equity owners, which doesnt always cover the costs of insuring and maintaining the properties. For information visit www.sanibelchr. org or call 472-1189.

Three-Week Theological StudyThe Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ will hold a special three-week course exploring Amy-Jill Levines book The Misunderstood Jew. The course will be held on W ednesdays, December 4, 11 and 18, at either 10 a.m. or 7 p.m. (identical sessions). The course will be taught by the congregations Senior Pastor, the Rev. Dr. John H. Danner. Dr. Levines book explores the importance of understanding the Jewish context of Jesus life and teachings to fully appreciating his work. It also examines the rift that developed in Judaism resulting in the eventual breakaway of those who came to be known as Christians in the late first century. Dr. Levine will serve as the guest lecturer for the annual Shared Scholar Lecture on Sanibel in late January, and this course is designed to provide groundwork for her presentation Jesus, The Jewish Storyteller. Dr. Levine is University Professor of New testament and Jewish Studies, E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Professor of New Testament Studies and Professor of Jewish Studies at Vanderbilt Divinity School and the College of Arts and Sciences; she is also Affiliated Professor, Centre for the Study of Jewish Christian Relations, Cambridge, U.K. Holding a B.A. from Smith College, and both an M.A. and PhD from Duke University, she has honorary doctorates from the University of Richmond, the Episcopal Theological Seminary of the Southwest, the University of South Carolina Upstate, Drury University and Christian Theological Seminary. A self-described Jewish Yankee feminist, Professor Levine is a member of Congregation Sherith Israel, an Orthodox Synagogue in Nashville, Tennessee, although she notes, she is often quite unorthodox. Dr. Danner holds degrees from the University of Maine, Bangor Theological Seminary, and a PhD in Religious Studies from Boston University. This course is part of his season long series titled Theological Studies. The course is free and open to the public. There will be nominal fee for the book.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 29, 201314 Holocaust Survivor Recalls Harrowing ExperienceOn November 20, the SanibelCaptiva Lions Club welcomed guest speaker Steen Axel Metz, who related his personal experiences as a Holocaust survivor. Referring to the genocide of 1.5 million Armenians in Turkey, Metz pointed out that students living in Turkey today would never hear about that part of history, and that there are still today many who deny the historical fact of the Holocaust. For this reason, he has felt compelled to relate his personal experience to as many people as possible. Metz, his mother and father, were arrested by the gestapo in October 1943 and taken from their home in Odense, Denmark. Together with others, they were packed into cattle cars and taken to Theresienstadt, Czechoslovakia. There, prisoners were subjected to physical and emotional degradation, uncertain as to whether they would live or die. continued on page 42 San-Cap Lions Club member Clint Parsons, left, and guest speaker Steen Metz FISH December Workshops Open to All IslandersFISH of Sanibel, Inc. announced a number of upcoming free workshops and events during the month of December: Chris Coile Performances To Benefit FISH Tuesday, December 3 and 17 at 6 p.m. at George and Wendys Seafood Grille, at Periwinkle Way and Tarpon Bay Road.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 29, 201318 The Extraordinary Project Highlights Legacy Of DingMarvo Entertainment Group LLC and The Des Moines Register have announced a new project in conjunction with Marvos award-winning documentary, Americas Darling: The Story of Jay N. Ding Darling. Americas Darling is the true story of Jay Norwood Ding Darling (18761962), the nationally renowned Des Moines Register cartoonist who changed America by influencing presidents, shaping landscapes and winning the hearts of the people. As the Register prepared to enter a new chapter by moving to a new building after 95 years at its Locust Street location, an important legacy came to light: 19 crates, each containing more than 200 original printing plates of cartoons by Darling and his colleague Tom Carlisle. Dating from the early 1920s to the late 1940s, each plate was carefully filed by the Register in a paper slipcover with the cartoon printed on the front. A neatly folded proof of the cartoon was also enclosed with each plate. See the projects website at Darlings grandson, the late Christopher Kip Koss, had recently said of the collection, The discovery of thousands of Ding Darlings original printing plates tucked away in the Des Moines Register for decades offers an extraordinary opportunity to revisit the artists skills in presenting his timeless commentary. To preserve this outstanding archival treasure, Marvo and the Register have entered into a four-year partnership titled, The Extraordinary Project, for the stewardship, temporary storage, cataloguing, and digitizing of the collection. Plans are also being made to create a stand-alone traveling exhibit that will be displayed in Iowa as well as nationally. The collection will also be used as a tool for educational outreach and for connecting with the general public and the organizations associated with Darlings and Carlisles legacies. Some of the Darling cartoon plates will be included in The Hidden Works of Jay N. Ding Darling exhibit traveling in conjunction with screenings of Americas Darling. The Hoover Presidential Library in West Branch, Iowa, will be featuring the exhibit from January 25 March 23, 2014. Bringing Ding Darlings work to life for new generations of Americans is an important effort, said Randy Brubaker, a senior editor at the Des Moines Register who has worked with Sam Koltinsky and Marvo. Many of his editorial cartoons are as relevant and valuable for public debate today as they were nearly 100 years ago. The Register is happy to provide access to Darlings archived works for Sam Koltinsky and Marvo Entertainment as they embark on another project related to Dings legacy. Joining this partnership, the Sioux City Public Museum is providing the continued on page 23How To Catch A Cane ToadCome to the SCCF Nature Center on Tuesday, December 3 at 10 a.m. and learn about Sanibels newest invasive nonnative amphibian. The giant marine toad (aka cane toad) was documented during SCCFs annual frog call survey this past summer for the first time. Come and learn about this newest invader and how to help control them in your neighborhood and yard. A live cane toad will make an appearance for the program. You will leave the program as a graduate toad buster, hopefully returning to your neighborhood to catch cane toads around lights after dark. No one knows what will happen to our native critters that try to eat these toxic toads. Dogs can die if they eat one... what happens to a bobcat that eats a cane toad? The toads are not toxic to handle unless you eat one! Just wash your hands after handling... or use gloves or a net to capture them and bring them to SCCF for freezing. Call SCCF Wildlife Habitat Management at 472-3984. Admission to the program is free to all.Coyote And Bear Tales On Wednesday, December 4, come to SCCF and learn about two newcomer species to the islands. A coyote and a Florida black bear were documented on the island for the first time in the winter of 2011. Come and learn about the behaviors of these two new species and how to live with them. Coyotes have now moved into every county in Florida. Both human and bear populations are growing in Florida. The islands black bear was relocated to a new territory and then needed to be relocated again. There is a family of coyotes that islanders will hear calling again this winter season when the snowbirds arrive and the song dogs sing in response to sirens. The program is free to children and SCCF members, or $5 for adults and starts at 10 a.m. Call SCCF at 472-2329 for more information on these programs unless otherwise indicated.

Preferring rural woodlands, it breeds from Long Island, Indiana and Kansas down to the Southeastern U.S. While the species winters primarily in the tropics, few make it as far south as Sanibel. A Chuck-wills-widow was admitted to CROW last week after being found on the ground by a man who initially mistook the bird for a baby hawk. Dr. Katie McInnis, DVM intern, performed the initial physical examination. She immediately noticed that the patient was a bit underweight. Additionally, bloodwork indicated that the bird was fighting an infection, which was treated with antibiotics. Radiographs ruled out any other abnormalities. Before being placed in a quiet room to rest, the patient was tube-fed a special mixture designed for insectivores that provides nutrients found in the Chuck-willswidows natural diet of insects and other invertebrates. In the wild, these birds utilize their enormous mouths to suck insects out of the air while they fly. They just dont eat in captivity, explained Dr. Heather Barron, hospital director. They feed on the wing, which cant be easily reproduced in a hospital setting. Sometimes you can put a bug in their mouth and they may swallow it, but Ive never had one eat on its own. After two days of supportive care in ICU, the bird became more alert and perky. Dr. Heather felt it was time to transfer the patient to an outdoor enclosure. Sprinkled throughout CROWs wooded campus, the large structures are covered in fine mesh netting and provide enough room for avian patients to take short flights for stamina building. Before the morning transfer, Jordan Donini, assistant wildlife rehabilitator, brought the Chuck-wills-widow to one of the examination rooms for breakfast. Several staff members gathered quietly in the adjoining halls to catch a glimpse of the unusual bird. It looks just like an Whip-poor-will! whispered one student excitedly. After less than a week of care at the wildlife clinic, this remarkable Chuckwills-widow was given a clean bill of health by Dr. Heather and returned to its home in Fort Myers. 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 29, 201320 Birds Eye ViewThe Commonality Of Lifeby Mark Bird WestallWe are getting into that time of year when the birding on the mudflats in the refuge is really good and the wading birds that feed there are more willing to let a bunch of predators in a canoe get close to them. The birding is good because not only do we have the local birds feeding, but we now also have the snowbirds that have come down from further north for the winter. And the tolerance level for the birds goes up this time of the year because we are getting into a really good rotation of strong low tides occurring first thing in the morning every other week. During the summer, those strong low tides happen more at night when the diurnal wading birds cant take advantage of the low water. Basically, from now until around March, you will see the mudflats being more commonly exposed. But something else may occur to improve the birding on the mudflats at this time of year; we will periodically have a strong could front come through that pushes the water out of Pine Island Sound with its strong northwesterly winds. These strong winds make it even easier for the birds to find their prey trapped in the shallows, but from the standpoint of my canoe trips, the cold fronts also make the temperatures much cooler first thing in the morning. Lower temperatures mean hungrier birds because they have to burn up lots of energy just trying to stay warm. And if youre hungry, you might just be a little more tolerant of a predator that is in a canoe and passing through the neighborhood. As many of you know who have gone on one of my trips, I spend a lot of time talking about the observations Ive made about the natural world and then theorizing about how that world works based on those observations. Well, one of the things I like to point out is noticing the commonality of life on this planet. As my customers are sitting in the canoe and watching the ibises, herons and egrets, storks and spoonbills, etc. feeding on the mudflats only a few feet away, I like to have them focus on the birds legs and notice that it appears their knees bend the wrong way. Then I point out that those are not their knees; what they are looking at are the birds ankles! And they are standing on their toes; and their knee joints are actually up underneath the feathers of their wings and their body. I then continue in explaining that I would never try to say the birds are on an equal basis with the human species, especially when it comes to the potential of intellectual thought (I put the word potential in quotes because too many people, I feel, dont utilize their capacity for intellectual thought enough; they rely more often on their ancient instinctual thoughts and confuse those thoughts with intelligence). But even though the wading birds cant compete with humans on an intellectual level, I can see that they have evolved into their particular niche and they can do what they do much better than us. Can humans naturally fly or capture a fish in the blink of an eye? And it is the diversity of all the various species that have evolved on this planet that makes life (ncluding human life) on this planet stable. All life is jockeying for position in order for its particular genetic code to survive. And in this fight for survival, a balance has been achieved. One species evolves a better technique to become a more efficient predator and a prey species evolves in turn a response to that technique that helps to perpetuate the preys gene pool. Species come and go, so we should not worry too much when a few go extinct. But there is an intricate, delicate balance that exists between all life and I would argue that humans have not reached the intellectual level that would allow them to know what species we can live without and which ones will spell our eventual doom if they disappear. My father has a quick phrase to express what species have value and which ones do not. He would say, If you cant eat it, or hunt with it; what good is it? But I believe that view is too simplistic. I figure that Im not smart enough (nor is anybody else) to know the true value of every insignificant appearing species on the planet. And since I dont know, isnt it in my best self-interest to appreciate and have respect for all life? When my father used to tell me that protecting endangered species (mostly non-game species) was a waste of the taxpayers money, I would love to mention the story of Noahs Ark (its difficult for many Midwesterners like my father to argue against the Bible). On the Ark they understood that that you needed two of everything; non-game species held equal footing with game species and farm animals alike! For me, I think the story of Noahs Ark was the first environmental story that was ever written.

Matt MitchellThanksgiving means the arrival of our first strong cold front of the year for anglers. Windy conditions leading up to the front made being out on the water a little tough going. Despite the wind, once tucked away, trips still produced a great mixed bag of fish. This week marked the switch over to live shrimp fishing as rough seas made catching shiners out on the beach not only dangerous but close to impossible. Prior to the windy conditions and cold front, shiner fishing just about any place you chose to fish was on fire. Lots of snook of all sizes along with, jacks, trout and mangrove snapper made up the majority of the action. After chumming live shiners for the last few months, it was only a matter of time until the shiners ended and it was time to make the switch over to shrimp fishing. The good thing about live shrimp is the action is hard to beat for both variety and non-stop action. The downside is you had better take lots of shrimp as everything eats shrimp. Redfish were the main target of most trips this week during the windy periods but lots of other species got in on the party. Everything that swims in our waters eats shrimp and though most of the fish caught are not giants you never know when you will hook into a big snook or redfish. Most redfish I caught this week were all found close to home in the southern sound as thats the area I targeted. During the morning, higher water redfish were caught under the mangrove shorelines on the east side of the sound along with potholes around oyster bars. During lower tide periods, deeper mangrove channels and shorelines in and around the Ding Darling Refuge held good numbers of redfish. Just about every spot I tried for redfish held at least a few, with some places generating non-stop action. Though most of these redfish are blue-tailed and on the small side of the slot, they are our normal winter sized reds. What they lacked in size they often made up for in sheer numbers. Catching 20-plus redfish and coming home with a limit of slot sized fish up to 25 inches is never a bad thing. It seems the slot-sized fish are mixed in with these rat reds. If youre catching lots of shorts, just stay put and after four or five shorts there will be a keeper. Its great to see so many redfish around and its a good sign that our winter time redfish action will stay consistent. The first sheepshead of this winter season were also caught on shrimp during trips this week. Four-pounders and even a few closer to five pounds were caught in and around deeper docks and while targeting redfish along mangroves. Both live and small pieces of shrimp rigged on a small sharp hook, light leader and just a big enough split shot to get the bait to the bottom was the rig of choice. Sheepshead will be a go-to species for now all winter long. They are a great food fish as they feed on crustaceans and have firm, white, mild meat. They are a favorite of many winter-time anglers in Southwest Florida along with the fact they only need to be 12 inches long to keep and they have a generous bag limit of 15 per angler per day. How quickly things can change. Just a few days ago I was still fishing a fall pattern with shiners being the go-to bait. It only took one good hard cold blast and our fishing switched practically overnight to the a winter pattern. As conditions gradually warm back up, things might switch back to shiners for a few more weeks or until the next strong cold front arrives.

23 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 29, 2013 Everglades Restoration High Priority For FWCThe Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), during its meeting on November 20 in Weston, presented a position paper designed to help guide Everglades restoration. The position paper provides guidance on how to resolve habitat and wildlife issues as the FWC and partners work together on Everglades-restoration efforts. This document is an important tool for managing the habitats and species in this complex ecosystem. In the position paper, FWC biologists provide science-based information regarding the timing, distribution and flow of water throughout the Everglades ecosystem. It also provides data collected over the past 60 years demonstrating how fluctuating water levels impact the wildlife and habitats in this ecosystem. Its all about the quality, quantity, timing and distribution of water, said FWC Commissioner Ron Bergeron. Our approach is adaptive and based on six decades of in-the-field science. Extreme high and low water events negatively impact the ecosystems native wildlife and habitats. For example, extreme high water levels are detrimental for terrestrial species such as panthers, deer, bobcats and raccoons. High water conditions reduce the amount of available food sources and indirectly may lead to the spread of disease. Extremely low water levels can also have negative impacts such as peat fires that can cause long-lasting damage to tree islands and other plant communities. Returning the water flow back to a more natural state will have positive impacts for native plants and animals. We need flexibility in dealing with extreme high or low water events because either means sudden death for the Everglades ecosystem, said Bergeron. We need to have the tools and policies to manage emergency water events so that we can keep the Everglades alive during the largest restoration effort in the world. FWC staff will continue to protect fish and wildlife resources by participating in planning meetings and providing comments, review and input into future decisions about Everglades restoration.

From page 18Extraordinary Projectlocation and expertise for the cataloguing and digitizing of the collection. Darling grew up in Sioux City and started his cartooning career at the Sioux City Journal. Steve Hansen, diector of the Sioux City Public Museum, underlined the projects importance. The Sioux City Public Museum welcomes this history-making collaboration with Marvo Entertainment, he said. An opportunity to preserve history of this magnitude is one that we do not take lightly. Ding Darling is a heritage treasure of Sioux City, and we look forward to adding a new chapter to his legacy. Editorial cartoonist Matt Wuerker, winner of the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning, said of the project, Finding the engravers plates to the Ding Darling and Thomas Carlisle cartoons is discovering a true treasure trove from the golden age of editorial cartooning. People who love political cartoons, especially educators and scholars, will get a lot out of this remarkable collection. Joe McGovern, president of the projects newest partner, Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation, feels the project has special significance. Ding Darling was a catalyst for conservation, not only within the movement but for the entire nation, he said. His work called attention to the importance of protecting our natural heritage and the risks we run if we do not. These plates remind us that there is still much work to be done, for his message resonates today just as much as the day they were created. Marvo Executive Producer Samuel Koltinsky is both honored and excited to be involved in the project. We are looking forward to celebrating the Des Moines Registers new era with honor, respect and, yes, humor through what the Register has entrusted with us these special treasures of cartoon plates, he said.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 29, 201326 Plant SmartCannonball Treeby Gerri ReavesThe amazing cannonball tree (Couroupita guianensis) is native to South America and a member of the Brazil nut family. It has been grown for centuries in India, too, where it is considered a sacred tree. Youre more likely to see the cannonball tree in a botanical garden than in a residential landscape, for it is somewhat messy, requires lots of space, and can reach a height of more than 100 feet. The leaves cluster at the branch ends. Both the flowers and fruit grow from a tangle of thick stems that grow from the trunk. The nectarless flowers measure two to three inches across, with six pink or red petals. They develop in bunches, have a pleasant fragrance, and contain both fertile and infertile pollen. Insects feed on the infertile pollen and in the process are covered in the fertile pollen from the stamens in the hood or male part of the flower. Thus the fertile pollen is carried to other plants. The fruit that gives the tree its common name falls from the tree when mature and often cracks open. A ripe fruit is about 10 inches in diameter and weighs as much as a bowling ball. Needless to say, one should avoid standing near a fruit-bearing tree. In contrast to the flowers, the fleshy pulp of the six-segmented fruit has an unpleasant stench. The seeds are embedded in the pulp, which oxidizes to a bluish green color. The cannonball tree has many traditional medicinal uses.

Mike Campbell, Joe Weatherby, Dave Sirak and John Park accepted the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Emmy Award for Technical Achievement for the filming of the sinking of the USS Mohawk. The group was recognized for the onboard cameras and data collection recorded by the cameras and instruments sunk with the ship. Located only 28 nautical miles off the coast of Captiva and Sanibel islands at a depth of 90 feet, the USS Mohawk is a one-of-a-kind dive destination made possible by Joe Weatherby, ship wrecker for Reef Makers, and Mike Campbell, Lee County Natural Resources Senior Environmental Specialist. Joe Weatherby and Mike Campbell proudly display the Emmy Awards for Technical Achievement that they won for their involvement in the USS Mohawk Project Skiing On SanibelDr. Kent Larsson, from Uppsala, Sweden, says he came to Sanibel for the excellent skiing conditions. Roller skiing that is. He heads west on Middle and West Gulf drives, then north on the bike trail next to Rabbit Road, then back east on Sanibel-Captiva Road and Periwinkle Way.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 29, 201328 Grand Slam Catches For Local Family On Friday, November 15, Andre Arensman, a local realtor, took his sons Sam, 13, and Ben, 11, out fishing in the back bay. Locally, a grand slam is defined as catching a snook, a red drum and a trout all in one day. On Thursday, a cold front passed through and the fish did not bite at all. Friday was just the opposite. Within four hours, Ben caught 18 snook and Sam caught 17 snook. They ranged in size from 20 to 32 inches. In addition, both boys caught a handful of red drums as well as plenty of sea trout. Andre caught about a dozen snook and a dozen reds. The fishing trip was a birthday present for Ben. He couldnt have wished for a better birthday. The fish were caught in about three feet of water, about 75 to 100 feet off shore across from the mangroves. They used light tackle with greenbacks as bait on small circle hooks. All fish were safely released back into the water.

29 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 29, 2013 Dolphins Of Pine Island Sound Dolphins of Pine Island Sound is the subject of a talk by Kim Bassos Hull of Mote Marine Laboratory. The SCCF-sponsored program, part of Captiva Holiday Village festivities, will be held in the Wakefield Room at Tween Waters Inn on December 5, starting at 7:30 p.m. Hull has been tracking the location and relationships within the dolphin population of northern Pine Island Sound for almost 20 years. Each dolphin is identified by the unique shape and coloration of its dorsal fin. Thousands of photographs are sorted and entered in a database to help follow the lives within this group of about 250 individuals. Bottle-nosed dolphins in Southwest Florida are unusual because there are not migratory. Many other places in the world, this species will move hundreds of miles as their food availability changes. Here in our own backyard, the dolphins find all they need year round, so an extended trip to them is visiting Charlotte Harbor or Estero Bay. That appears to be just during mating season which gives a nice mixing in the gene pool. Increasingly there are problems with dolphins begging food from boaters and anglers. This cycle is extremely difficult to break. Dolphins have learned left over bait can be thrown into the water, boaters see dolphins approaching boats and think its fun to interact by swishing hands in the waters or tossing food. Dolphins learn to patrol boats for more food. Anglers get angry when dolphin steal bait off the fishing line. Dolphins get close enough that they are getting hit by propellers or get entangled in fishing line and so on it goes. More dolphins are showing signs of boat injuries. Counter to some beliefs that dolphins are able to avoid fast moving boats, some are showing wounds and scarring. Dolphins have over 80 very sharp teeth designed to grasp a slippery fish. Those same teeth have been known to bite humans holding food or pretending to have food. Hull has studied the intergenerational relationships of local dolphin populations, what dolphins travel together, how they feed and more about their daily lives. Her knowledge comes from years of first hand observation. The second lecture of Captiva celebration sponsored by the Sanibel Captiva Conservation Foundation is Ancient Mariners Tales of Calusas and Cubans, will be on Thursday, December 12 at 7:30 p.m. also in the Wakefield Room. Bootsie is the name given to this dolphin by the Captiva Cruises crew. She frequents an area just south of Useppa photo by the crew of Captiva Cruises A dolphin that was patrolling a boat in hopes of a hand-out photo by Red Anders

The Shell Islands Garden Club is a membership of hands-in-the-dirt gardeners with interest in floral design, horticulture, conservation and local philanthropy. From left, Judy Hicks, Maggie Butcher and Carolyn DeCoster Volunteers Needed For Christmas Bird CountSan-Cap Audubon will conduct its annual Christmas Bird Count (CBC) 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 of their efforts 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. Before the turn of the 20th century, people engage 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 scientists were becoming concerned about declining bird populations. Beginning on Christmas Day 1900, ornithologist Frank Chapman, an early officer in the thenbudding 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 CBC. Birding skills are desirable but not necessary. If you would like to participate in this years Sanibel-Captiva CBC, you may obtain additional information by calling 437-2459.

35 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 29, 2013 Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellThis past weekend, on one of the big morning shows, there was a feature presented on retired three-time Olympic champion in track and field, Gail Devers. Although I wasnt really paying much attention to the piece, I did catch the segment when they discussed a medical issue that almost derailed her future as an Olympic competitor. Again listening just slightly, I picked up the symptoms she was experiencing during and after her first run for the gold. She was not making her times, her hair was falling out, her trademark fingernails were breaking off, weight was falling, etc. Bah-da-bling! Hadnt I just heard about some of those symptoms described to me recently? A light bulb went off... she had a thyroid condition. Sure enough, in 1990 she was diagnosed with Graves disease, received treatment and was able to compete again in 1992 to win her first Olympic gold medal. I mention this because it was evident to me that our Rotary Club speaker this past week had espoused those very symptoms as indicators of a thyroid condition. Dr. Charles H. Emerson, professor emeritus of medicine, University of Massachusetts Medical School, editor of Thyroid, the journal of the ATA (American Thyroid Association) and Rotarian was our speaker. As Emerson said, This is a complicated subject and he was challenged to lighten it up for some of us. So drawing pictures might do the trick for the group well, not exactly, but his presentation started with a PowerPoint graphic showing where the thyroid gland is located in the body. It lies at the base of the neck just in front of the trachea (windpipe). The thyroid gland is shaped somewhat like a butterfly shaped like a butterfly, stings like a bee. It is part of the bodys endocrine system. The endocrine system consists of organs and tissues that produce, stores and secretes hormones directly into the bloodstream The hormones in the thyroid contain a high concentration of iodine 80 percent of iodine in the body, in fact. If there is a deficiency of this element it can affect the heart, liver, reproductive systems, muscles, skin and all major organs.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 29, 201340 From page 35RotaryThere are three types of hormones inside this gland T3 (triiodothyronine), RT3 (reverse triiodothyronine) and T4 (thyroxine); when the body needs more thyroid hormones, this gland secretes T3 and T4.into the bloodstream. These hormones regulate the rate of the bodys metabolism, which promotes normal tissue growth and repair, affects cardiac rate and maintains the production of energy for muscle and body heat. Insufficient thyroid hormone production is known as hypothyroidism symptoms include dry skin, hair loss, weight gain, constipation and sensitivity to cold. In childhood, deficiency may cause severe growth retardation. Overproduction of thyroid hormones is known as hyperthyroidism symptoms include fatigue, anxiety, palpitations, sweating, weight loss, diarrhea and intolerance of heat. Malfunction of this gland can cause a variety of disorders including: congenital (missing at birth), genetic (impair the thyroids ability to secrete hormones), autoimmune (ex. Hashimotos disease) and hormonal disorders (during puberty or pregnancy) and additional problems with nutrition, infection, tumors and myxedema. Both insufficient and excessive iodine intake can result in thyroid disease. Some consequences that iodine deficiency imposes can include goiter, hypothyroidism and intellectual disability. When severe iodine deficiency occurs during pregnancy, it is associated with cretinism and increased neonatal and infant mortality. Iodine is an essential component of thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3), and it must be provided in the diet. Inadequate iodine intake leads to inadequate thyroid hormone production, and all the consequences of iodine deficiency stem from the associated hypothyroidism. In developing countries, iodine deficiency has been identified as one of the modifiable factors that have an adverse effect on child development. It is a global public health problem. The advice here is, if you have some of the symptoms listed above or generally havent found an answer to changes occurring in your body, have your doctor do a thyroid test. Its a fairly simple blood test and check out your numbers. This is a correctable medical problem.

This years panel of judges has been named and will bring together some of the best local news and travel names. Local NBC-2 anchor Kellie Burns will again return to judge this years event, along with newcomers NPR and News-Press essayist Amy Bennett Williams, and nationallypublished travel writer Stephen Winston. The judges will evaluate golf carts based on creativity and best use of the holiday theme. Participants can compete in either Commercial or Non-Commercial categories, which encourages friendly competition among businesses and also allows neighborhood groups and families to join the fun.

Airing of Xtreme Xmas has been scheduled for Thursday, December 12 at 7 p.m. on Travel Channel. The Golf Cart Parade is sponsored by the Royal Shell Companies. A portion of the proceeds are donated to the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 29, 201342 Curious George This is Barb Traums narrative about Tom and Theresa Louwers, Dick and Emily Muench, Bill and Barb Traum six travelers and one monkey!Once upon a time six friends and a monkey went on an adventure. Actually, the six friends went on an adventure. The monkey had no idea what was about to happen when his owner, Dick Muench, stuck him in a box and put him in an SUV, and the group set off for Tennessee. Dick was selling the monkey to a zoo owner north of Tampa, who had a female marmoset who was ready to mate, and had convinced the rest of the homo sapiens group that transporting the monkey would be easy peasy. The group set off, with what was to be a simple stop at a McDonalds for coffee and various breakfast foods. The problems started when Dick passed the monkey box to his wife, Em. Perhaps the monkey hated the smell of fast food. Perhaps he had learned of the Match. com situation and was against it. At any rate, the monkey pushed his way out of the box, and dove for the floor, finding a tiny opening near the dashboard which permitted him to hide behind the glove box. Barbara and Bills home was nearby, so the group drove there, with the hope of pulling into the garage, finding the monkey, and proceeding with the original plans. No such luck. Then the group went to Bills auto mechanic and told him of the dilemma. After several minutes of hysterical laughter, the mechanic calmed himself, started taking apart the dashboard area, and used an air hose to try and convince George to come out (he had been named Curious George by this time). Again, no luck. And so, we started on the road again, wondering what we were going to do. We stopped at the zoo north of Tampa to inform the owner of the situation, and then continued on our way north, hoping that George was okay and that we could get him out of the dashboard alive and well. Before stopping for the night at a motel in Georgia, we went to a tractor supply store and told the clerk of our problem. She collapsed on the floor laughing, then composed herself, stood up, and sold us a Have a Heart trap. The next morning we had our first monkey sighting. Barbara and Bill looked into the car, and there was George, looking out the window on the opposite side. He was okay! So we quickly found Dick and told him the news. He went to the car, but this time George was looking out the other window and saw Dick approaching. Back under the dashboard he dove. Another day of driving with a monkey hiding in the car. At the end of the second day, we checked into another motel. When we were getting out of the car, Dick asked Tom to get him the flashlight from the glove box. When Tom opened the door, there was George, lying on the flashlight! George took a flying leap onto the front of the dashboard, but when Dick reached for him, George flew back behind the dash. With George in hiding again, we drove to a nearby restaurant for dinner. When we came out a couple of hours later, we peeked into the car before opening the door, and there was George again! This time, Dick was a little more agile at climbing around in the vehicle to get George, and at last he gathered him into a towel, and upon returning to the motel, the trap was placed in the (very small) bathroom, and George was transferred from towel to trap, complete with a dish of food. We all slept better that night, including George. The following morning we reached Pigeon Forge, Tennessee and went to an indoor zoo that Dick was familiar with. The owner there gladly bought George, so now hes a Tennessee resident, and waiting to meet that special someone to spend his life with. Thus ends the tale (tail?) of Curious George and his traveling adventures.

His father died of starvation within the first six months. As many as 140,000 victims passed through the camp, about 35,000 victims died there, mostly from starvation, and about 70,000 to 80,000 people were transported from there to extermination camps, including about 15,000 children. Few survived. In April 1945, white buses from the Swedish Red Cross came to free the Danish prisoners, ending this part of their ordeal. One member of the audience pointed out that she felt that Metzs affect seemed to noticeably change as he described his evacuation from the prison camp and thanked him for sharing his experiences with those present. Metz mentioned that for many years he was unable to give voice to his experiences, but with fewer Holocaust survivors still living, felt it was imperative that he share his eyewitness experience with as many people as he could. He also speaks to many schoolchildren about his Holocaust experience. When one asked him whether he felt lucky to have survived, or guilty, he replied, Maybe I should feel guilty... but I certainly feel very lucky. The San-Cap Lions Club thanked Steen Metz for sharing his story. New Years Eve Party At The RecKiss 2013 Good-Bye is the theme for this years New Years Eve party at the Sanibel Recreation Center.

47 ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 29, 2013 Monday Night MovieBarbaraby Di SaggauThe BIG ARTS movie for Monday Night, November 29, is Barbara, Germanys entry into the Oscar race for best foreign picture. This outstanding film is set in East Germany in 1980. Barbara (the brilliant Nina Hoss) is a young doctor who has applied for an exit visa from the German Democratic Republic and, as punishment, has been transferred from her prestigious post in a top-flight Berlin hospital, to a small pediatric hospital on the coast of the Baltic Sea. Director Christian Petzold winds up the Cold War tension from the start and keeps it taut throughout. Constantly under the watch of the Stasi, the East German secret police, Barbara walls herself off from everyone, trusting no one. The overlay of Communist oppression infuses every scene, even the gorgeous shots of Barbara riding her bike near the windy coast. Complicating Barbaras life further is the arrival of a young pregnant teenager who trusts only Barbara and works in a labor camp. Like Barbara, she yearns for some sort of freedom. The whole film is an exercise in trust and the lack thereof. Barbara must weigh her absolute dedication to her patients against a potential escape to the West, and her newfound attraction to a doctor whom she eventually sees as a kindred spirit. The film runs 105 minutes. 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 at the door or by calling 395-0900.

NEWSPAPERSanibel&CaptivaIslands BUSINESS REAL ESTATE CLASSIFIEDS VOL. 21, NO. 23 SANIBEL & CAPTIVA ISLANDS, FLORIDA NOVEMBER 29, 2013 B BSECTIONThe Sanibel Lighthouse: Part IIsland Icon More Than A Beautiful Beaconby Jeff LysiakAfter more than five decades of requests for a navigational aid for an increasingly busy Southwest Florida seaport, which at the time was importing more cattle than tourists, the Sanibel Lighthouse became operational on August 20, 1884, when her lamps were lit for the very first time. The uniquely designed, 98-foot tall iron structure, located on the easternmost end of the island, has withstood severe weather, the perils of war and the passage of time during her tenure overlooking San Carlos Bay. Now 129 years old, the Sanibel Lighthouse also known as Point Ybel Light is as iconic a symbol of the islands as any other. When it was built, it was the highest structure in all of Lee County, said Charles LeBuff, local author, historian and former JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge staff member who lived at Lighthouse Quarters #2 for almost 22 years. This lighthouse guided boats in and out of San Carlos Bay safely during hurricanes for protection. They used to look out for German U-boats during World War II from the tower there. Its the most photographed landmark along the entire coast, I think. People are just fascinated with lighthouses. In 1883, the United States Congress appropriated $50,000 to construct a lighthouse on Sanibel Island a midpoint light between Egmont Key (Tampa) and Key West. The structure an open skeletal-type iron tower with a central cylinder was built at the Phoenix Iron Companys factory in New Jersey. It was then transported by ship to the island. However, part of the tower sank en route to Sanibel, but was recovered by divers two miles off shore. Simultaneously constructed on the site was a pair of wooden keepers quarters, erected on iron stilts. The lighthouse and both cottages are the oldest surviving structures on the island. The accommodations for the lighthouse keepers were modest, at best. In 1923, both quarters were remodeled and indoor plumbing was installed. Screen porches were added to the bay side of each building, and bathrooms with plumbing replaced the earlier outdoor privies. It was pretty primitive living, recalled LeBuff, who moved to Sanibel in 1958. We had no air conditioning we didnt have a telephone during my first three or four years and it was very buggy out there before mosquito control started knocking them back. Originally illuminated with kerosene gas, the lighthouse converted to acetylene gas in late 1923. In April 1949, the lighthouse became automated and, in 1962, the facility was fashioned with electronic equipment to light her rotating lens. One of the original lenses used at the lighthouse is now stored inside the Burnap Cottage on the grounds of the Sanibel Historical Museum & Village. In fact, a scale replica of the lighthouse itself stands in front of the 1898 structure.continued on page 4B The Sanibel Lighthouse and the pair of keepers quarters cottages, located at the base of the historic structure, were constructed simultaneously in 1883-84 photos by Jeff Lysiak The drum lens, which once occupied the Sanibel Lighthouse, now sits inside the Burnap Cottage at the Sanibel Historical Museum & Village

4B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 29, 2013 From page 1BIsland IconFrom what Ive been told, the lighthouse keepers job wasnt very easy, said Helene Smith, a volunteer docent at the museum. They had to carry two big buckets filled with oil up those stairs (there are 127 steps from the ground to the top of the tower) twice a day to keep it lit, so that was pretty rough work. Burnap Cottage contains a number of historic artifacts from the lighthouse, including copies of the original blueprints created for the structure, oil cans, oil lamps, various signs, shingles from the keepers quarters and assorted photographs of the iconic iron tower. Interestingly, the lens on display at the museum remains property of the U.S. Coast Guard, according to Smith. A couple of gentlemen from the Coast Guard stopped by here last year and they told me that they were taking an inventory of their lenses, Smith said with a laugh. Apparently, this lens and the lens thats still in use at the lighthouse is still their property. Over the years, the Sanibel Lighthouse has survived Mother Natures most treacherous storms including major hurricanes in 1910, 1926, 1928, 1960, 2004 and 2005 with the only casualty being the U-boat tower damaged by Hurricane Donna in 1960. The U.S. Coast Guard operated the Sanibel Lighthouse from 1939 through automation a decade later. By the time LeBuff received his assignment at the then-Sanibel National Wildlife Refuge in the late 1950s, the Coast Guard had already begun reassigning duties of the former lighthouse keepers. The City of Sanibel took over management of the light station but not the tower itself in 1982. Finally, in 2010, the city purchased the lighthouse, keepers quarters and 44.7 acres of land upon which it sits from the U.S. Department of the Interiors Bureau of Land Management for $10 per acre, or a total cost of $447.70. During the deed ceremony when the city officially took ownership of the property, longtime island resident and then leader of the citys Historic Preservation Committee, the late Sam Bailey, shared some of his favorite memories of the lighthouse with the gathered crowd. Among the artifacts on display is an original door knob from the lighthouse keepers quarters Burnap Cottage also displays a large collage of various lighthouse images The lighthouse and keepers quarters were placed on the National Registry of Historic Places in 1974 In this postcard from 1949, a U-boat tower and cottage which were added during World War II can be seen to the left of the lighthouse photo courtesy of Sanibel Historical Museum & Village Sanibel Island Lighthouse Established: 1884 Automated: 1949 Height: 98 feet Steps: 127 Primary Color: Brown Original Lens: Third Order, Fresnel Characteristic: Fixed white varied by a white flash every 2 minutes Ownership: City of Sanibel Operated by: U.S. Coast Guard Placed on National Registry of Historic Places:1974


This lighthouse has been a great part of the island for many, many years, said Bailey, who also recalled playing inside the tower as a child. We used to have races running up the steps to the top. Nowadays, I couldnt make it up there if you gave me an hour! But while the structure itself is not open to the public for tours, the surrounding beachfront and walking trails is one of the most frequented areas on the entire island for residents and visitors.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 29, 20136B Bank Of The Islands Sponsors CHRs Annual Mardi GrasBank of the Islands has taken the lead in supporting the Community Housing & Resources (CHR) second annual Mardi Gras, serving as title sponsor for the 2014 event. We are excited to have this wonderful contribution from Bank of the Islands, said Melissa Rice, CHR board member and event chair. At CHR we have observed that many Sanibel businesses have good reason to be thankful to CHR, since it provides affordable housing on the island for key staff. It is clear that Bank of the Islands recognizes this vital connection. Community Housing and Resources, in collaboration with the City of Sanibel since 1983, provides affordable housing for island workers, senior citizens (with an island history) and the disabled. With more than 117 residents occupying 74 rental units and 14 limited-equity ownership homes in 11 complexes throughout the island, CHR is an essential resource for establishments providing essential services to islanders. With a daily presence in such places as restaurants, banks, retail facilities, The Sanibel School and the City of Sanibel, CHR residents contribute in numerous ways to island life and often volunteer with, and lead, island organizations. Affordable housing is key for a thriving community, said Bank of the Islands CEO Geoffrey W. Roepstorff. Robbie and all our banking team join me in applauding CHRs efforts and in looking forward to a great Mardi Gras benefit. Set for Saturday, March 1, the event will again be reasonably priced and family-friendly, with a hearty Cajun dinner featuring Louisiana crawfish, and will take place again at The Dunes Golf & Tennis Club. Plans include childrens activities, a silent auction and a raffle. New for 2014: a Dixieland band. Also, organizers say, attendees will be encouraged to wear themed costumes. Look for information soon on purchasing CHR Mardi Gras tickets.

ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 29, 201312B FISH Of Sanibel Holiday Givingsubmitted by Christine Swierz of FISHThe holidays are truly a time of sharing at FISH of Sanibel, Inc. as evidenced by the kind generosity from our wonderful island neighbors. This year, thanks to the generous donation by Chuck Bergstrom of REMAX of the Islands and other supporters, FISH will be providing 35 of our island families with holiday food baskets. Each basket will contain a turkey plus all the trimmings and a homemade pie that will be baked and donated by members of the St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church. Our senior and disabled neighbors will receive a holiday dinner gift certificate to use either at George and Wendys Sanibel Seafood Grill or The Island Cow. FISH will continue the program for the upcoming Christmas and Easter holiday season. FISH would like to extend its deep gratitude to Chuck Bergstrom for once again helping to make its holiday basket program a success. Thank you to Judy Pryor who coordinated the donation of the pies and to the ladies of St. Michaels for their kindness and generosity. FISH would also like to say a big thank you to all who helped with donations of food, time and talents and, of course, to the many volunteers who will donate their time to distribute baskets and cards to our neighbors.

14B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 29, 2013 LeBron James And David Beckham Exploring Idea Of Soccer In Miamiby Ed FrankTwo iconic names in professional sports, LeBron James and David Beckham, want to bring a Major League Soccer team to South Florida, preferably to Miami. There is little doubt that the interest in soccer is sweeping America, from tiny tots to the World Cup, and it appears that more and more parents are pushing their children into the sport and away from the inherent dangers of football. A professional soccer team in Miami would be the 21st franchise in Major League Soccer. Beckham, the sports most famous player, and James, who some consider the best to ever don a basketball uniform, certainly have the public recognition and financial resources to make a serious effort in this regard. But its far from a done deal. Both confirmed last week that negotiations have begun and that research is underway. The four-time MVP in the NBA said, I think Miami is a great town for soccer. There are a lot of soccer players here. There is a lot of great youth soccer here. Its a pretty intense sport and my kids love it. And Beckham, recently retired, reportedly has been exploring the idea of running his own MLS franchise for several months. James went on to say there is interest on both sides, but it is in the preliminary stages. David has been a good friend of mine the last few years. No stranger to the game, James became a minority owner of the English Premier League club Liverpool PC two years ago. Major League Soccer had a franchise in South Florida from 1998 to 2001, but the team, the Fusion, playing in Fort Lauderdale, folded. ESPN reported that Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has expressed interest in joining Beckham in bringing an expansion soccer team to Miami. They also reported that Beckham has an option to acquire a MLS expansion franchise at a discounted rate of $25 million, but the option expires at the end of the year. It is believed that MLS would require building a soccer stadium for a new franchise, but the team could probably start out in a temporary facility such as Marlins Park or the football stadium at Florida International University. James has led the Miami Heat to back-to-back NBA championships and is recognized as the best player in the league. He also is becoming one of the richest as he markets himself in all sorts of off-the court ventures. He is earning hundreds of millions of dollars in endorsements and business investments, much like Michael Jordan has done for years. Success on the soccer field or the basketball court does not insure success in owning a professional team. Jordan has struggled with his Charlotte Bobcats of the NBA although the team is showing improvement this year. But the dynamics of Beckham and James are intriguing. Its a scenario worth watching.

Rec Center Members Of The MonthJudith And Chuck PapierThe City of Sanibel Recreation Department has recognized Chuck and Judith Papier as members of the month. The Papiers have been visiting Sanibel for 23 years and have been residents for five years. Around the time they became island residents they also decided to join the Sanibel Recreation Center to continue their active lifestyle. Both Chuck and Judith believe that exercise of any form has greatly benefitted both their physical and mental wellbeing. Chuck played tennis for 40 years but after suffering a rotator cuff injury he felt he needed a substitute form of exercise and now uses the weight room. Judith has always been a swimmer and as a member at the recreation center she is able to use the lap pool to continue swimming. When asked their comments about the recreation center they said they go to the rec center three or four times a week and enjoy being welcomed by a warm and friendly staff. They make exercising a pleasure, not a chore, they added.They are both New Jersey natives. Chuck attended New York University for his undergrad and went to grad school at Pennsylvania College of Optometry. He practiced optometry in New Jersey for 37 years. Judith is a graduate of the College of New Jersey. She was a school teacher prior to becoming an office manager at her husbands optometry practice. After retiring in 1990, they began their visits to Sanibel and have volunteered their time to local organizations including Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF), CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife), the Chamber of Commerce, Hope Hospice and currently FISH (Friends In Service Here). They have been married for 61 years and have two children and one grandchild.

LEO (July 23 to August 22) Try to be more open-minded in working toward a resolution of that standoff between yourself and a colleague or family member. A little flexibility now could work to your advantage later. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) You might feel a bit threatened by a proposed workplace change. The best way to deal with it is to ask questions. Youll find that those involved will be happy to provide you with the facts. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Feeling alone in a crowd during the early part of the week is an unsettling emotion. But your spirits soon perk up, putting you into the right mood to start making holiday plans. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A pesky problem should be dealt with immediately so you can put your time and effort into something more important. Someone from your past could have significant news for you. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) High-energy aspects dominate, both on the job and at home. Use this time to put some long-range plans into operation. Things level off later in the week. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Even the usually gregarious Goat might feel overwhelmed by a flurry of activities. Be patient. Things soon return to your normal social routine. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Career choices that seem too confusing to deal with at this point probably are. More information would help uncomplicate them. On the personal side, a friend might need your advice. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Your Piscean imagination is stimulated by possibilities you see in a new opportunity. But keep those ideas to yourself until you feel ready to translate them into a workable format. BORN THIS WEEK: You have an ingratiating way of helping people deal with their fears. Have you considered a career in social work or with the clergy? On Dec. 8, 1542, in Linlithgow Palace in Scotland, a daughter is born to James V, the dying king of Scotland. Named Mary, she was the only surviving child of her father and ascended to the Scottish throne when the king died just six days after her birth. On Dec. 2, 1777, legend has it that Philadelphia housewife and nurse Lydia Darragh single-handedly saves the lives of Gen. George Washington and his Continental Army. She made notes when she overheard the British planning a surprise attack and got them to Washington. On Dec. 6, 1921, The Irish Free State, comprising four-fifths of Ireland, is declared, ending a five-year Irish struggle for independence from Britain. The Irish Free State was renamed Eire, and is now called the Republic of Ireland. On Dec. 5, 1933, the 21st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is ratified, bringing an end to the prohibition of alcohol. Prohibition did little more than slow the flow of booze, and bootleggers like Al Capone built criminal empires out of illegal distribution. On Dec. 4, 1945, the U.S. Senate approves U.S. participation in the United Nations. The U.N. allowed world leaders to observe each other as never before, as in the 1961 incident when Russian leader Nikita Khrushchev presented a spectacle by pounding his table with his shoe for emphasis during a U.N. debate. On Dec. 3, 1979, the last Pacer rolls off the assembly line at the American Motors Corp. (AMC) factory. In 1975, the ads said, When you buy any other car, all you end up with is todays car. When you get a Pacer, you get a piece of tomorrow. Today polls and experts agree: The Pacer was one of the worst cars of all time. On Dec. 7, 1982, the first execution by lethal injection takes place at the state penitentiary in Huntsville, Texas. Charles Brooks, Jr., convicted of murdering an auto mechanic, received an intravenous injection of sodium pentothal, the barbiturate that is known as a truth serum when administered in lesser doses. It was lexicographer Samuel Johnson who made the following sage observation: Always, set a high value on spontaneous kindness. He whose inclination prompts him to cultivate your friendship of his own accord, will love you more than one whom you have been at pains to attach to you. On Jan. 31, 2013, it officially became legal for women to wear pants in Paris. Before that, a law on the books only allowed women to wear pants if they were holding a bicycle handlebar or the reins of a horse, or if they had requested special permission from the police to dress like men. Japanese consumers are now able to buy a smartphone attachment that emits the odors of short ribs, beef tongue and buttered potatoes. Other attachments are also available, with scents such as the ylang-ylang flower, cinnamon rolls, coffee, corn soup, mint, strawberries, jasmine and curry. Its well known that famed childrens book author Dr. Seuss had no children of his own, but you might be surprised to learn that he created an imaginary daughter, Chrysanthemum Pearl. He dedicated his book The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins to her: To Chrysanthemum Pearl, aged 89 months, going on 90. If youre like 6 percent of Americans, when you vacuum you do it in your underwear -or naked. Before the invention of the electric light, people slept, on average, nine hours a night. Since then, its been about 7.5. Sleep researchers say that in a lab setting, people deprived of electric light go back to sleeping nine hours a night. If you dont go after what you want, youll never have it. If you dont ask, the answer is always no. If you dont step forward, youre always in the same place. -Nora Roberts THIS WEEK IN HISTORY STRANGE BUT TRUE THOUGHT FOR THE DAY


23B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 29, 2013 Our Case For Owning Stock by Timothy Vick, The Sanibel Captiva Trust CompanyIts widely known that retail investors have been net sellers of stocks during the 2009-13 rally. As a corollary, we have witnessed an explosion of interest in exchange traded funds (ETFs), which many investors view as a natural evolution of portfolio management in an Internet age. Whether driven by macroeconomic fears, reduced trading costs, or disillusionment over a decade of volatile equity performance, more investors believe their needs cant be served any more by holding shares of companies and instead are opting for big-picture approaches. To us, a basic approach to investing owning strong, growing companies, and letting the companies growth increase portfolio value over time gives you the best chances of satisfying your financial goals. Despite the proliferation of financial innovations, with investors swapping into new products ever more frequently, the proportion of investors keeping up with benchmarks has not risen apace. New financial products have generated fees for their creators and purveyors but have yet to add positively to the returns of investors themselves. Somebody needs to look under the hood. The banking industry found itself in serious trouble packaging and trading mortgages without screening the contents of these packages. Now we see investors being tempted to do the same with ETFs gaining exposure to a theme, asset class, or sector without taking the time to understand what underlying securities they own. To us, every asset in a portfolio must be scrutinized in isolation and its risks and potential rewards well understood. The chief role of a securities analyst is to value holdings and determine the rate of return each investment can deliver over time. It is better to pass up an investment we cant take apart, piece by piece, than to own something we have a hard time valuing. Its better to own than rent. Though more investors crave the simplicity of owning a basket of ETFs, the reality is that these same investors are tempted to trade their ETFs at rapid rates and dance in and out of asset classes to attempt to time their returns. Owning shares of individual companies, in contrast, should be a highly selective process a partnership between shareholders and management that is broken only when the company does not live up to expectations or when the shares become fully valued. Packaging of financial products benefits the packagers. While marketed as cost-effective ways for retail investors to invest passively, ETFs have morphed into hedging vehicles that allow traders to buy an ETF while simultaneously shorting the stocks held in the ETF. This exposes retail investors to technical trading whims they should be avoiding. There are already thousands of ETFs to choose from as hyper-competition has taken hold, so the initial benefit of ETFs is becoming a marketing race to the bottom, adding to investors confusion and stifling returns further. Stocks allow you to keep control. We think its vital for investors who are following long-term plans to control their destiny as much as possible. It is much easier to attain, say, a 7 percent longterm return by hand-selecting individual companies growing at 7 percent rates than to spray money over dozens of investments that were not packaged with your needs in mind. 1-239-851-5188 Cell 1-239-851-5188 Cell800-553-7338 x 233 www.RoseDakos.comRose Gibney DakosVIP Realty Group, Inc.Sanibel & Captiva Islands, Florida Direct Access Canal Home on SanibelSpacious 4 bedroom, 4 bath home on Lighthouse Way on Sanibels east end.

24B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 29, 2013 This Thanksgiving weekend Im reflecting how fortunate I am. Through most of the year I also realize that Im not as grateful as I should be for my many blessings. I believe that many of us fail this gratefulness test whether we believe those blessings to have occurred due to personal efforts or bestowed by divine providence. Ive been thinking about how gratitude and happiness are often tied together. Ive read several newspaper articles attempting to identify what makes us each of us happy. Is it money? Prestige? Family? A combination? Dan Sullivan, the founder of the Strategic Coach program, suggests that what makes most of us happy and therefore grateful for our happiness boils down to four personal freedoms. They include the freedoms of money, time, relationships and purpose. And each freedom is two-fold. The first part of each freedom is the freedom to and the second part is the freedom from. Most of us would agree that while money doesnt buy happiness, having the freedom to spend our resources on those things we find most enjoyable makes life easier. Freedom of time is probably as important (or more so) than any other freedom that Sullivan identifies. Any working stiff will tell you that he looks forward to the day when he has the freedom from sitting at his desk weekdays from 9-5. At the same time, dont most of us want to have the freedom to spend our time as we choose? Those that have the greatest amount of free time also have the greatest ability to maximize the use of the other three freedoms. Freedom to have relationships with those whom we cherish the most leads to a satisfying and happy life as well. Each of us may have several different aspects of this freedom. At the office we hope to have the freedom to work with those who we find energizing, supportive, valuable and engaging. We also hope to have the freedom from work relationships that are confrontational, ineffective and unproductive. It puzzles me, for instance, when those who have the ability to make changes to a toxic workplace environment fail to do so. Its usually best for all parties to move on to another relationship. Relationship will also encompass our family and close friends. We all hope to have satisfying relationships with our spouse, children, grandchildren, siblings, parents and friends. The freedom from relationships that dont work is equally as important to our happiness. In order to have these relationships we often need elements of the other two (money and time) so that we can spend the time to visit with and often travel to those we value. Finally, there is the freedom of purpose. Each of us wants to believe that our lives matter. For some of us, the freedom of purpose means to have successfully raised a family. To others it means to have created a business or engaged in a profession that enriched the lives of or helped others. Some wish to be a mainstay of their community through political or charitable causes. About ten years ago I completed an exercise that was particularly helpful in identifying what is most important to me. In this exercise I was told to assume that I had only one year to live and that I would remain reasonably healthy throughout that year. What would I do? Where would I go? Who would I want to see? I wrote down my thoughts. When I finished the moderator asked me an important question. If these things you wrote down things that you would do knowing that you have a limited amount of time on this earth are important to you how many of them are you doing now? Not many. I answered. Why not? Why arent you doing them now? He asked. Because I dont have the time, money, etc. I answered. You may not have all of the time and money to do all of them now, he said, but you certainly have the time and resources to do some of them this year dont you? Yes. And next year? Cant you knock some of them out next year too? Yes. Assuming that you are not going to die in a year, what is preventing you from doing these things most important to you right now? The bottom line of the exercise is that we all have a limited amount of time in this world. Most of us have enough of the four freedoms to accomplish those things most important to us as well. I certainly do, for which I am grateful. And I wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving weekend. Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at Will PowerGrateful For Personal Freedomsby Craig R.

26B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 29, 2013 School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Readers, The holiday season is here and while it most often elicits many positive feelings it also can create a great deal of extra stress for everyone but especially children and teens. Here is information from the American Psychological Association (APA) series Stress in America about the signs of stress in children what to watch for and how to cope with it. All young people are susceptible to stress. It can come from a variety of sources including doing well in school, peer relationships or the lack of them, or coping with demands from parents, teachers, or coaches. Some stress can be positive in that it provides the energy to tackle a big test, presentation, or sports event. Too much stress, however, can create serious problems for a child. Sometimes parents may be unaware when their children or teens are experiencing overwhelming feelings of stress. Tuning into emotional or behavioral cues is important in identifying potential problems and to provide guidance and support to successfully work through difficult times. Here are some tips from the APA on ways to recognize possible signs of stress: Watch for negative changes in behavior. All children, but especially younger children, may find it difficult to recognize and verbalize when they are experiencing stress. For children, a signal of stress is typically seen through changes in behavior. Common changes can include acting irritable or moody, withdrawing from activities that used to give them pleasure, routinely expressing worries, complaining more than usual about school, crying, displaying surprising fearful reactions, clinging to a parent or teacher, sleeping too much or too little, or eating too much or too little. With teens, while spending more time with and confiding in peers is a normal part of growing up, significantly avoiding parents, abandoning long-time friendships for a new set of peers, or expressing excessive hostility toward family members, may indicate that the teen is experiencing significant stress. While negative behavior is not always linked to excessive stress, negative changes in behavior are almost always a clear indication that something is wrong. Adults will want to pay attention to these behaviors and determine an appropriate response or intervention. Understand that feeling sick may be caused by stress. Stress can also appear in physical symptoms such as stomachaches and headaches. If a child makes excessive trips to the school nurse or complains of frequent stomachaches or headaches (when they have been given a clean bill of health by their physician), or if these complaints increase in certain situations (e.g., before a big test) that child may be experiencing significant stress. Listen and translate. Because children are often not familiar with the word stress and its meaning, they may express feelings of distress through other words such as worried, confused, annoyed and angry. Children and teens may also express feelings of stress by saying negative things about themselves, others, or the world around them (e.g. No one likes me, Im stupid, Nothing is fun.). It is important for parents to listen for these words and statements and try to figure out why your child or teen is saying them and whether they seem to indicate a source or sources of stress. Seek support. Parents, children, and teens do not need to tackle overwhelming stress on their own. If a parent is concerned that his or her child or teen is experiencing significant symptoms of stress on a regular basis, it can be helpful to work with a licensed mental health professional. For additional information on stress and lifestyle and behavior, visit, read APAs Mind/Body Health campaign blog Ms. Greggs is adjunct faculty at Edison State College where she teaches psychology and education courses. She is also Nationally Certified School Psychologist and consultant for School Consultation Services, a private educational consulting company.

Empty Bowls Lunch At FGCUOn Friday, December 6, Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) Art Program will host the annual Pottery Sale and Empty Bowls Soup Lunch for pottery enthusiasts, holiday gift buyers and community supporters at the arts complex courtyard on campus. The sale takes place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and the soup lunch from 11:30 a.m. until the soup and bowls run out. For 13 years, the art program has partnered with the United Arts Council of Collier County to produce an annual pottery sale, featuring potters from across Southwest Florida. The event provides visitors an opportunity to purchase beautiful, functional, handmade pottery while also benefiting the art councils art education programs. A portion of the proceeds from every sale will go toward the purchase of art supplies and equipment and contribute to funding for teachers in after-school programs. This years sale will feature pottery by Annabelle Johnson, Rinny Ryan, Patricia Fay, Sara Truman and current and former FGCU art program students. Empty Bowls is an extraordinary national phenomenon that unites potters, students, restaurants and food banks to address the needs of the hungry in local communities. The formula for fundraising is simple and sincere potters and students make bowls, area restaurants donate soup and bread, and hunger assistance organizations provide education. For a $15 donation, visitors to the event will pick out the bowl they like best and fill it with the soup of their choice. After a soup kitchen style meal, the bowl is washed and taken home for use with the knowledge of having assisted needy members of the immediate community. One hundred percent of the proceeds will be given to partner organization Interfaith Charities of South Lee in Estero for its community food pantry. Soups for this event are provided by Hyatt Regency Coconut Point (Beef and Barley), Teds Montana Grill (Bison Chili), Carrabbas (Lentil Sausage), PF Changs (Egg Drop and Hot & Sour), Waterside Grill (Chicken Noodle), and Connors Steak and Seafood (Crab and Lobster Bisque). In addition, the FGCU Science of Cooking class will be contributing a vegan soup developed as a class project. And once again, ciabatta bread will be donated by The Artisan Bread Company.

28B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 29, 2013 Superior InteriorsGet In The Spiritby Marcia FeeneyThe holidays are just around the corner and if youre looking for ways to decorate beyond the traditional trappings, then here are a few great ideas for your consideration. Consider your lighting. Is your family one that does Thanksgiving in a big way? Then you may want to consider making some changes to traditional accent lamps with white or cream colored shades. Perhaps a lampshade style in one of todays rich harvest hues would be the perfect new accent. Rich gold shades, for instance, will cast a beautiful warm glow throughout any room. On the other hand, if you enjoy going all out for Christmas, you might want to exchange your current lampshades for ones with red or green shades. This kind of lighting design can be particularly appropriate in a room already decked out in a red and green color scheme. Beautiful Tabletops Today, fresh is in. So why not consider decorating your holiday table with a beautiful fresh flower arrangement? Even floating a few carefully chosen flowers in a beautiful. ceramic or fine art glass bowl would definitely help your tabletop take center stage. At Thanksgiving time, a beautifully designed bowl might be carefully filled with natures bounty of squash, gourds, and miniature pumpkins. Or you could take a more decorative approach and fill a centerpiece bowl with seed-studded balls in a variety of colors. And at Christmas time, this same bowl could then be filled with glass balls mixed with goldand silver -leafed fruit, and foods that reflect the shades of the season, like artichokes and pomegranates. To complete your table settings, take a cue from the objects youve used to fill your decorative bowl to designate each place setting. If, for instance, miniature pumpkins are a part of your thanksgiving mix, give each guest his or her own. Carve out the centers and use them as mini-vases for appropriately scaled flowers. Or make openings large enough to accommodate votive candles. The same concept works equally well with artichokes for Christmas settings. You might feature seasonally-themed stationery as place cards, finishing each one with a keepsake stickpin. Glowing Candles If one pair of candlesticks on your fireplace mantle is good, then a collection is even better. If you collect crystal, for example, pull together a grouping in all shapes and sizes, old and new. Add candles of varying heights and youre ready to set a romantic holiday mood in continued on page 30B Buying or Selling a Home or Property? Kevin F. Jursinski, B.C.S. Kara M. Jursinski, Esq.

Investing During a Recovery. Our goal is to put current valuations in perspective, given strong equity returns, historically low interest rates and the economic environment. We think its prudent to lower expectations. For example, the S&P 500 has appreciated 16 percent annually for the last five years, while earnings have only grown 9.5 percent. Over long periods of time, returns should be more in line with earnings growth, which we expect to be more like 7 to 9 percent annually. However, our client portfolios are much different than the market and we continue to find opportunities for growth and income, said Dorsey. We were pleased to present this important event as part of our continuing effort to keep clients and friends of our firm informed during todays dynamic business climate, said Richard E.

29B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 29, 2013 Flood Insurance On AgendaBusiness members of the Sanibel and Captiva Chamber of Commerce met at Sundial Beach Resort and Spa last week to hear local insurance experts give a briefing on the state of the flood insurance legislation. The panel of speakers was Bob Rosier, president, Rosier Insurance; Angela Larson Roehl, branch managing agent, Rosier Insurance; Chris Heidrick, president, Heidrick and Company Insurance; and David Schuldenfrei, president, Sanibel Realtors Association. The agenda consisted of an update on the current state of the Biggert Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 and the progress of two federal bills: House 3370 (Grimm) and Senate 1610 (Menendez). House 3370 was assigned to a Congressional committee on October 29, which will consider it before possibly sending it on to the House or Senate as a whole. Informed Washington opinion gives the bill a 45 percent chance of getting past committee and a 33 percent chance of being enacted. Senate1610 has also been passed to committee and is thought to have a 14 percent chance of getting past committee and 5 percent chance of being enacted. The purpose of both bills is to delay the implementation of certain provisions of the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012, and for other purposes..The Chamber meeting was told that even if the Menendez/Grimm bills make it all the way to enactment they only represent a delay not a repeal of Biggert Waters. Members should therefore continue to feel very concerned about the high probability of big increases in their premiums. Property owners on Sanibel and Captiva should therefore: 1. Prepare by ensuring that they have an up to date elevation certificate; 2. Depending on the status of their current insurance (e.g. written before or after July 6, 2012) and their allotted flood zone (e.g. A or V) anticipate a substantial increase when their policy is renewed but actively seek to mitigate this; 3. Improve the chances of either Menendez or Grimm passing by writing to their congressman or senator, especially if they are outside Florida, urging support for both; 4. Contact their insurance adviser for more information about their particular situation.

MYERS BEACH239-489-3311 Specializing in Sofa SleepersWorkshops On Optimizing HealthThe Community Association will host five free public service workshops this winter with Eden Energy Medicine. The classes teach how to work with subtle energies to restore your energy when tired; sharpen your memory; boost your immune system; and alleviate stress and pain. The October issue of Prevention Magazine extolls the virtues of energy medicine. Workshops: December 12, 10 a.m. to noon. Heart Blimps? Blood pressure, arrhythmia, circulation? Tools to address blood pressure; learn to hold acupressure points to balance heart energy; trace your heart meridian to boost heart energy; release trapped energy stuck between the throat and waist creating pressure in the chest cavity and more January 15, 1 to 3 p.m. Joints Groaning? Arthritis, stiffness, replacements? Create movement and looseness. Learn tools for those joints that whine too much, or that discomfort from that hip or knee replacement. Joints need space and fluidity to move. This class will provide tools to create space, to unlock frozen muscles, to get energy into those tight joints or provide pathways to reroute energy flow around replacements. February 13, 4 to 6 p.m. Cancer dis-ease? Body, mind or spirit in overdrive? Unleash the innate ease with Eden Energy. The class will discuss that with cancer, normal cells have learned a new habit field that does not serve our overall health. Shifting the habit field energetically opens new cellular memory to the cell. This class will work with the Commander of our Energies to rebalance all the systems to enable shifts to the habit the cancer cells have created. By calming the energies and boosting Spleen energy (which metabolizes everything we take in from emotion to food), a new nice dance begins. March 12, 10 a.m. to noon. Stressed? Dropping a fork set you into meltdown mode? Activate your internal joy juice. Not only does stress deplete the spirit, but the body and mind too. Learn how to activate the radiant circuits of your energy systems, to find the positivity and joy even when the lynch pin falls. \ April 9, 4 to 6 p.m. Eyes sad? Cataracts, night vision, bright light hurts; macular degeneration? Activate your inner healing with Energy Medicine shifts. This class will provide exercises for improving eye health and assisting with healing for cataracts, night vision, bright light that hurts the eye and teach daily eye routine. The workshops are free, but pre-registration is required. Call The Community House at 472-2155 to register. For more information about each talk contact: or www.

30B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 29, 2013 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, This past Christmas we decided to give our daughter and our daughter-in-law money for their presents. We seemed to be unable to choose the right size or color for gifts in the past so we thought it a very good idea to give money. A month later, to our horror, we found they spent our hard-earned cash on manicures and pedicures. We think that this is disgusting and a total waste, when the money could have been spent in a far better way. What is your opinion? Harry and Mary Dear Harry and Mary, Professionally done manicures and pedicures now seem to be a necessity for many of the boomer generation, and even for some of their 10-year-old daughters. These procedures do not come cheap and I am amazed to see how many women and young girls line up outside these salons waiting to get in on a Saturday. That being said, when you give a gift of money it belongs to the recipients and rarely comes with a manual of special instructions as to how the money is to be spent. You may not approve of their choice, but this is just a perfect example of the many differences between the generations Lizzie Dear Harry and Mary, I am sorry you feel the money gift you gave is being squandered. However, how the gift is spent is not about you, it is about the receiver, your daughter, and what she wants to do with the money. Manicures and pedicures fall into the same category as day spas, massages, facials and eyebrow plucking. All these services pamper and make one feel special. I believe that it is a great gift to give any loved one. Pryce Lizzie and Pryces email address is Got A Problem? Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: Are there any benefits to having a little stress in my life? I have far too much and I am working on decreasing but dont know how to eliminate all of it.A: Yes, there actually are benefits to having some stress in your life. For one, it is a motivator that can get you up and going each day. Research has shown that the immune system may benefit from short bursts of stress that elicit our fight or flight mechanism. (Think of the stress youd endure while taking a timed exam, running a race or playing a game with a timer.) In my book, The Gift of Change, I wrote about enthusiastic stress. The following is an excerpt: Not all stress is bad! Enthusiasm takes stress to a positive level. If we did not experience some enthusiasm (positive stress with a goal), we would wake up every day, put the covers over our head and return to sleep! The happiest people minimize stressful situations. There is plenty that you can do to minimize stress and its negative effects. Yet most are puzzled about how this can be done. A generally held belief is that our stressful events are generated by events outside of us. If only our spouse, boss, colleagues, parents would change, then we wouldnt have so much stress. Do you find you are still waiting for others to change so you will be happy and less stressed? Much of our stress comes from reacting to outside events rather than going to that inner part of the self and asking how we became so stressed to begin with. An optimal level of stress can keep you energized, focused and motivated so you want to focus on achieving the balance of not too much or too little stress. Check in with yourself as you are your own barometer. From page 28BGet In The Spiritany room. And as the seasons change, simply change the color of your candles. Dont be afraid to mix and match the style of your candlesticks either. An eclectic collection invariably says something about your personal style something thats sure to make any holiday decorating scheme more memorable.

31B ISLAND SUN NOVEMBER 29, 2013 deaRPharmacistIf You Were Going To Eat Gluten, Wouldnt You Eat Stuffing?by Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: I heard your lecture on free The Gluten Summit last week and was shocked to find out I take gluten every day in my medicine, and Im a Celiac. Can you write more about this food additive? PM, Austin, Texas Being gluten free myself (by choice), I am frustrated with you. If you were going to eat gluten by choice, you wouldve eaten the stuffing, right? Its hard to exercise the necessary selfrestraint to pass up pies, bagels, bread and traditional pasta, and some of you have to because of your condition. I wish pharmaceutical companies would post their sources for ingredients, but this isnt required yet. You have to do the digging. Medications are always gluten free. Its the hidden sources of gluten that present the biggest challenge for Celiacs and those with gluten sensitivity. No one can fully digest this protein, so that makes us all technically sensitive to some degree. Gluten may be found in the excipient which is an inactive ingredient used to absorb water, allow for disintegration and release of the the ingredients and lubricate the mixture. These binders and fillers may be sourced from various ingredients. Here are my key points: Point #1 The word starch is questionable, so call the manufacturer and ask if it came from wheat. Maltodextran may be extracted from wheat, corn, potato or rice. You have to find out. Dextrimaltose may be from barley malt. Pregelatinized starch is another potential source of gluten, depending on the source. Dextrose is a sugar derived from corn, so it is gluten free. Sugar alcohols like xylitol are gluten free. Glycerin, lactose and cellulose are also gluten free. There are dozens more, so Ive created a big list to help you check your vitamin labels and medications and learn what ingredients are gluten free, which are endocrine disruptors, which are derived from petroleum, and which come from bug juice... yes, some do! I also posted a big list of gluten free medications. Visit www. Point #2 Even if your medication and all the excipients are gluten free, makers have the ability to change the ingredient list without advertising this. You need to constantly check the label, or contact the manufacturer. Point #3 Lets say you have a brand that is 100 percent gluten free, then one day, you switch to generic to save money. You may suddenly be ingesting gluten without realizing because the FDA does not require generic makers to match up the excipients, they only require them to match up the active ingredient (the drug portion). Im all for generics to save you money, I just want you to check the inactive ingredient list before switching. There are usually several generic makers of one brand drug, so dont give up if the first generic maker uses gluten, keep investigating. Look at the Patient Package Insert or go online. If that doesnt help, contact the manufacturer directly. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.
