ISLAND SUN JULY 11, 20144 Stars And Stripes Celebration At Summer CampBIG ARTS Summer Arts Camp features a different creative theme each week for children of preschool age through high school. Every summer, the campers get to showcase their art on the BIG ARTS float in a stars and stripes celebration. Summer Arts Camp continues through August 1, with enrollment on a weekly basis. Camp runs Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Younger campers had the theme Stars And Stripes during the fifth week of BIG ARTS Summer Arts Camp. It was all about celebrating the USA as the kids devoted their time to completing crafts and costumes for the parade float. Middle school and high school campers assisted with the younger campers and documented the event through photography. As part of the celebration, the campers took a ride on the patriotic float that they worked hard on creating this season in the Sanibel 4th of July Parade. The theme of Week 7 (July 14 to 18) for ages 4 and 5 and grades 1 to 5 will be Superheroes Unite. Campers will be getting in touch with their inner superheroes as they design their own costumes, masks and capes for a superhero production on Friday. Children will also explore comic book artists and create their own graphic novel featuring their character. The older kids will learn the basics of film and HD video production, along with sound capture and directing, using state of the art equipment in Film Production I.

ISLAND SUN JULY 11, 20146 Sea Level Rise Calls For Preparedness, Not Politicssubmitted by Ken and Kate Gooderham, ASBPA executive directorsNew climate change studies just released brought new interest in how sea level rise will impact on our coastal cities and communities. Thats good, whatever your thoughts on this hot-button issue. Why? Because the first step in being prepared is being aware and any coastal manager or resident who knowingly ignores a potential threat to the community and interests is not being a good steward for those interests. Saying it could happen is not necessarily saying it will, but to deny even the chance of catastrophe is a fools game. The good news is that, in cities from Miami to Manhattan, Seattle to Old Saybrook, people are looking at how vulnerable their community could be if seas start to rise more rapidly. In some areas, this is not an abstract interest. For instance, some areas of Miami Beach and Honolulu flood at slightly higher than normal high tides today, a problem that calls for action especially when this flooding is a new development in the past decade. Other cities, particularly those with major infrastructure within the tidal or storm surge zone, are looking at the lessons of coastal catastrophes such as Sandy to see what steps could be taken today to make this infrastructure withstand whatever tomorrow has in store. Given the price tags some cities could be facing, starting this process early is wise since its always easier to adapt over time than to make up for lost ground all at once when trying to recover from a coastal disaster. Whats the key to being prepared? Looking at your vulnerabilities today so they dont become liabilities tomorrow. Look at coastal areas that are prone to trouble in normal conditions low spots that flood quickly; hot spots that erode quickly; vital infrastructure such as roads, utilities and public areas that are most likely at risk in any storm or weather event. What can you start doing today that will make them safer tomorrow? Look at properties that are most vulnerable or have made your repetitiverisk list thanks to multiple damage claims. Can you plan to do something that will lower that risk, or can you work to move those structures away from future risk (or eventually remove them altogether)? Look at your community. Does it have a realistic view of coastal conditions, a desire to proactively address problems (coastal and otherwise)? Or does it lurch from crisis to crisis, addressing problems only when they become nearly unmanageable or major threats to public safety? Smart communities anticipate disaster (as much as possible, of course), rather than allowing a crisis to set the local agenda. How? By being prepared. When it comes to sea level rise, pundits and policy makers may have the luxury of debating or delaying because it is abstract issue for them, but people with something at stake such as coastal residents and managers had better be prepared for whatever might be ahead. That doesnt mean coastal interests should embrace the worst case scenario whatever this weeks iteration of that looks like. Nor does it mean those who care about the coast should let their ideologies override their interests, so their opinion about sea level rise closely follows their voting record. It means you have to keep an open mind and an adaptable attitude, to be willing to respond to what you see and what can scientifically be proven in a way that keeps you and your community ahead of the game in preparations. And it means looking for weakness and vulnerabilities before they put people at risk, and doing the necessary thing even if its not politically easy.

Macroalgae, Seagrass And Water QualityMacroalgae, or drift algae what we call seaweed is naturally present in local waters but at times the populations of macroalgae bloom. Following the very heavy releases from Lake Okeechobee in 2004 through 2006 during two active hurricane seasons, red drift algae accumulation was a problem on Sanibel beaches. Recently, mats of algae have been found in seagrass beds off the Sanibel Causeway and washing up on Useppa Island; there were red drift algae accumulations on Fort Myers Beach in June. Were these related to the high-volume freshwater flows from Lake Okeechobee as well as the Caloosahatchee watershed that came into the bay last summer? SCCF Marine Lab Intern Leah Reidenbach has been researching macroalgae. At 11 a.m. on Thursday, July 17, she will talk about how macroalgae are affected by nutrients and about the relationship between macroalgae, seagrass and water quality. The free presentation will be held at the SCCF Nature Center, 3333 SanibelCaptiva Road (near mile marker 1) on Sanibel. Reservations are not required.

ISLAND SUN JULY 11, 20148 Zontians Attend International Conventionsubmitted by Dalia JakubauskasMembers of The Zonta Club of Sanibel/Captiva were in attendance in force at the 62nd Zonta International Convention held June 27 through July 1 in Orlando. Present were president Robyn Moran, president-elect Virginia Jones, board members Nancy Dreher and Dalia Jakubauskas, and members Nola Theiss, Ruth Woodham and Merry Merryfield. Also in attendance were Linda Robinson, who serves as director of Zonta Area 6, and Karen Pati, who was installed at the convention as governor for Zonta District 11, which bore the responsibility of staging the conference. Held on a biannual basis, the 2014 convention attracted nearly 1,600 Zontians from 66 countries and all continents. Zonta has more than 1,200 clubs with 30,000 plus members spread across North and South America, Africa, Europe and Australia. The host district, District 11, is composed of 32 clubs in the Southeast United States, the Bahamas, Puerto Rico and the British Virgin Islands. Area 6 covers six clubs in Southwest Florida, including Sanibel-Captiva, and stretches from Naples to Sarasota. Island Zontians took on a number of volunteer duties at the convention including registration, distributing credentials, and staging an inspiring flag ceremony where all member nations were represented. Nola Thiess, director for Human Trafficking Awareness Partnerships, Inc, a Zonta service partner, also had the honor of conducting a workshop for a parallel convention of the Zonta Z-Clubs and Golden Z-Clubs. These clubs help high school and university students develop leadership skills, promote career exploration and encourage members to participate in community, school and international service projects. The convention serves numerous important purposes, including business components such as the election of officers and directors, a review of current programs, setting goals for the new biennium, and revisions to bylaws. Attendees also have the opportunity to hear internationally recognized speakers, exchange ideas, and learn new strategies for improving the status of women, the mission of Zonta International. Pati noted that the international sisterhood represented at the convention is a wellspring of inspiration. It is incredible timing to be governor following convention, she said. More of our members have had the opportunity to attend, and more importantly, be inspired by convention, than ever before. I envision an amazing level of enthusiasm, which I could never have created without this global gathering During the past biennium (20122014), The Zonta International Foundation raised over $5 million through contributions from its member clubs and individuals to support its global initiatives, which focus on education, health issues and combatting violence against women and girls, including human trafficking. Current initiatives include the treatment of obstetric fistula in Liberia, safe cities in Guatemala and El Salvador, and the prevention of mother to child transmission of HIV in Rwanda. In 2013, The Zonta Foundation of Southwest Florida, the non-profit, fundraising arm of the Sanibel/Captiva club, raised more than $100,000, a portion of which goes toward fulfilling Zontas mission on a global scale. The remaining funds are awarded in the form of grants to local service organizations that work to improve the lives of women, including literacy programs for non-English speakers and efforts to end domestic violence. Funds to enable island Zontians to attend national and international meetings are raised through a members helping members campaign. This includes club auctions and sales, and is completely separate from the funds that are raised in the community through the foundation.

Favorite Activity With Zonta Club of Sanibel-Captiva: I love working on the Peek at the Unique, which is Zontas annual tour of unique Sanibel and Captiva Island homes that raises the funds for the many grants that Zonta awards. Most Famous Person Ive Met: While I was in the U.S Attorneys Office for the Southern District of Ohio, I had the honor of meeting President George H.W. Bush and First Lady Barbara Bush during their visit to Columbus. And I used to live across the street from Woody Hayes, which, if youre an Ohio State Buckeye fan, may trump that.

The featured speaker is Marni Sawicki, Mayor of Cape Coral. Members and guests should tell the attendant at the gate to The Landings they are going to the Democratic Womens Club meeting at The Helm Club and the attendant will offer directions. Sawicki was elected in November 2013, serving as the first woman in the citys 43-year history to hold the seat of mayor in the ninth largest city in the state. She was vice president of a marketing firm, with a professional background in the insurance industry. She is a graduate of Central Michigan University and has a masters degree in business administration. As a former member of the DWC of Lee County, Sawickis election demonstrates a long-overdue change in our political landscape, women serving in powerful public leadership positions in Southwest Florida. Following her election, Sawicki was asked what she thought being the first female mayor of Cape Coral symbolized. Acceptance, she responded. A willingness to change, progression. If you look at the demographics and the history of our city, it is a huge accomplishment for people of the city to have been able to put outdated beliefs aside and say, I can support a woman. I can do that. It is one of those things we dont really talk about, but it is there, Sawicki added. I can give a few examples of how since I have announced running for mayor, the comments I have gotten. From the fact that I wore jeans to the Iraq War Monument ceremony to wearing heels in the Veterans Day parade, I have heard a number of things that a man would never hear. They dont get that scrutiny. I, and women in general, are held to a different standard. With that being said, that victory symbolized we have reached a point, and we are starting to move in a direction of more equality, she concluded. An optional lunch will be served following the August 9 meeting at a cost of $18. Visitors may make reservations for lunch by contacting Pat Fish at or by calling 466-8381. The Democratic Womens Club of Lee County is a member of the DWC of Florida. It works year-round to organize the Democratic voters of Lee County, Florida. The DWC of Lee County brings together in common purpose all Democratic Women of Lee County, although men are members as well. The DWC strives to stimulate interest in civic affairs, encourage good citizenship and educate the public on questions of public interest. The DWC encourages the active participation of Democratic voters, seeks to increase Democratic voter registration and supports qualified Democratic candidates for public office.

Collection boxes are available countywide to drop off new or gently-used sporting equipment of all types. Through August 5, Rotary members and United Way partners will be collecting this equipment to provide to children who are receiving care from the Childrens Network of SWFL. Donation locations are listed at CapeCoralRotary. Newly-installed President Alison Hussey and project chair Donna Marie Clavin collaborated with Hannah Pelle of the United Way and Nadereh Salim, CEO of Childrens Network, to develop a program that fulfills a need and does not duplicate services. We knew we wanted to do something different for the children; something to give them an outlet from what might be happening at home and provides them a sense of belonging and teamwork, said Hussey. We brainstormed and came up with sports equipment being a natural fit as sports and exercise builds the body and the mind and allows kids to excel. Salim is excited about this unique project. The Rotary Club of Cape Coral could be facilitating future Olympians, Wimbledon champions or World Cup soccer players, she added. They are filling a critical need that will help develop healthy and well-adjusted children. To allow abused, neglected and abandoned children in foster care or other placements an outlet in sports is an immeasurable benefit. Rotary Club of Cape Coral is a notfor-profit organization responsible for several community projects and events, including the Cape Coral Festival of the Arts, the Cardboard Boat Regatta, a dictionary project for third graders and Rotary Park in downtown Cape Coral.

The youth summer meals program began on June 1. Parents meet with Christine Swiersz, FISH social worker, to complete a client intake and paperwork to determine eligibility. The youth summer meals are delivered to each site on weekdays through the end of the summer sessions. The reason we started the summer food program is to ensure that children could continue to receive nutritious meals during school vacations, when they do not have access to school lunch or breakfast. We know there is a need in our community for these types of programs for our youth, said Swiersz, program director. By providing these meals and snacks, we are helping the households by easing additional expenses during the summer months. Most of the food is prepared daily by Baileys General Store and includes a sandwich, drink, fruit and snack; other snacks and drinks are purchased and delivered to the site as needed throughout the summer. Items are specifically geared toward the nutritional needs and taste preferences of children, she added. In the first two weeks of June, FISH delivered 82 meals to the Sanibel Recreation Center and many shipments of snacks and milk to the other site locations. FISH expects that number will increase as more children enroll in summer camp sessions. FISH is grateful to the Sanibel-Captiva Kiwanis Club, Baileys General Store and the volunteers who assist in making this program available to our community children.

ISLAND SUN JULY 11, 201416 Mantis Shrimp Week At Sanibel Sea Schoolsubmitted by Elly Rundqwist At Sanibel Sea School, we see seven colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet (a.k.a. the rainbow). But did you know thats only a tiny portion of the color spectrum? Last week, we studied the mantis shrimp, who helped us imagine the rainbow from an entirely new perspective. Humans only have three color receptors, but mantis shrimp have 16. By putting ourselves in these little shrimps shells, campers were able to see the ocean with kaleidoscope eyes. All week long, campers investigated the lives of mantis shrimp. During a beach obstacle course, we imitated our crustacean friends behaviors by crawling under tarps, hopping in and out of hula hoops, and spearing balloons with our claws to symbolize feeding. Mantis shrimp pack the most powerful punch in the animal kingdom by smashing or spearing their prey. They move their claws so quickly that a bubble of boiling water is created. Since mantis shrimp have eyes so different from our own, campers dove deeper into the eye to explore vision. We dissected cow eyes, played games to test our own vision, and looked at different types of lightbulbs through a spectroscope. The grand finale of our week was a giant celebration of color on the beach. We put on our cleanest white T-shirts, then challenged our fellow campers to a color war, drenching each other in buckets of colored dye until we became a human rainbow. In true Sanibel Sea School style, the surf paddling competition took place on Friday morning, and the green team was awarded the Golden Coconut. Campers left the week with an ocean of new friends and experiences, and many with a new favorite crustacean.

Three generations of the Frederick family, grandfather, father and son, went fishing with Sea Reed Charters. They caught many fish including this 26-inch redfish. Fish Caught Frederick Family members with a 26-inch redfish they caught Dustin Boone caught a snook at Blind Pass on June 25. I did not measure the fish, but he was probably in the slot (28 to 32 inches), reported Boone. The bait was a chunk of cut ladyfish and it was caught on an incoming tide. The fish was safely released and swam off to fight another day.

19 ISLAND SUN JULY 11, 2014 CROW Case Of The Week: Nursery Newsby Patricia MolloyBaby care is a substantial portion of the rehabilitation work performed at CROW. Each year, the wildlife clinic treats thousands of orphaned, abandoned and injured baby bunnies, squirrels, opossums and raccoons, in addition to ducklings, songbirds, fuzzy owlets, raptors and the occasional tiny turtle. The team of staff members, students and volunteers work around the clock to administer species-specific diets and critical medications while providing environments in which the youngsters will thrive. The avian nursery, which is perpetually at capacity, currently houses dozens of tiny patients, most of which arrived with light, downy feathers. Lined with incubators, the shelves of the room also contain tall stacks of clean towels and old newspapers to cover the bottom of the enclosures. Volunteers, staff and students move quickly and efficiently from one hungry bird to the next, meticulously recording individual body weights and dietary requirements. Each cage and carrier must be disinfected daily to minimize the possibilities of spreading germs. As soon as each patient has been fed, the team begins the wellchoreographed routine once again. It takes weeks or months for babies to mature enough to survive in the wild. Most of the babies raised at the clinic from babyhood do not need to be returned to the exact location in which they were found, since they were too young to have established a territory. If you are interested in having wild mammals, birds or reptiles released on your property, contact the clinic for the set of guidelines to determine if your land is suitable. The clinic will review the set of guidelines with property owners to determine if their place is suitable. Some of the questions include: Is the property wooded? Is there a pond? Is it safe from free-roaming dogs? Since 1968, CROW has participated in the rescue, rehabilitation and release of more than 100,000 wildlife patients and relies soley on charitable support. All contributions help care for the wildlife that keeps visitors returning year after year. 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 P.O. Box 150, Sanibel, FL 33957.

ISLAND SUN JULY 11, 201420 Inshore Gag Grouper And Mangrove Snapperby Capt. Matt MitchellWith the 4th of July weekend now behind us, we are into some of the best what I like to call meat fishing of the year. Inshore fisherman now not only have most of the local waters to themselves, but they can also target two species of fish that are usually for just the offshore guys. The summer inshore and near shore mangrove snapper bite for the next few months is as good as it gets. These tasty fish can be caught on structure throughout the sound, in the passes and on near shore wrecks and reefs, A few favorite places to target these fish include the edges and ledges of the shipping channel that runs out of Boca Grande Pass and the deepest sections of Captiva Pass. Mangrove snapper can be caught just about anywhere, although catching fish that are in the 14to 16-inch range takes a little more skill. Docks, blow downs and pilings within close proximity to the passes are also a good place to get you your fresh snapper dinner. These fish have very good eyesight, so the lighter the leader and the least amount of terminal tackle you can get away with the better. Live shrimp will work, but small pinfish, grunts and white baits are a better choice for the bigger mangs. For some reason, the mangrove snapper we catch from the passes out into the gulf are just a milder tasting fish than the ones we catch mangrove fishing in the sound. My thoughts on this is that the gulf fish eat a better diet and live in cleaner water than the fish we catch in the sound. Regulations on the mangrove snapper are five fish per person per day, with the minimum size being 10 inches. A scaled, gutted and gilled mangrove snapper is one of the best local fish to cook whole, either grilled, baked or deep fried. With snook season closed, these fish are one of my go to species all summer long for clients looking to take home a fresh fish dinner. Gag grouper is also high on the list of my favorite fish to target and eat during our summer months. This shallow water grouper can be caught in a lot of the same places as the mangrove snapper, but requires heavier tackle and bigger baits to pull them away from the structure. Many of the places these fish are caught are kept top secret by local guides and anglers as they are a almost private secret honey hole that may be just a sunken boat or appliances out in the middle of nowhere. Any inshore structure is a good place to start your hunt, with the deeper passes being a good choice. Several of my favorite gag grouper spots are rocky edges in the passes. These spots seem to be better action on the slack tide just when its changing, so you can hold the boat directly over the structure and fish large live baits on heavy tackle straight up and down. Another way to target these fish is by trolling deep diving plugs around the bridges and passes. Regulations on fag grouper and two fish per angler, with 22 inches being the minimum size. This season is open July 1 through December 3. Gear rules require anglers to use circle hooks and have a de-hooking device. The requirement of a venting tool was eliminated in January. Capt. Matt Mitchell has been fishing local waters since he moved to Sanibel in 1980. He now lives in St. James City and works as a back country fishing guide. If you have comments or questions, email Send Us Your Fish TalesThe Island Sun would like to hear from anglers about their catches.

23 ISLAND SUN JULY 11, 2014Ding Darling Legacy Honored Around USAsubmitted by Samuel KoltinskyWe at Marvo are excited to announce many new developments, including additional exhibit locations, a new office for Marvo, and the upcoming rededication of Lake Darling. New discoveries keep appearing as we continue to explore Jay N. Ding Darlings legacy through the traveling exhibit, The Hidden Works of Jay N Ding Darling. Thomas Lendt, son of Darlings biographer, the late David L. Lendt, is generously providing for the exhibit many unique items his father acquired during his research for the book, Ding: The Life of Jay Norwood Darling We continue to acquire other treasures for our exhibit, adding greater levels of depth and expansiveness to the exhibit. The Hidden Works exhibit will be on display at the Wildlife Society Conference coming up October 25 to 30 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Be sure to drop by Marvos booth and say hello to Sam. We are also excited to announce the reopening ribbon cutting of Lake Darling State Park, three miles west of Brighton, Iowa. The culmination of many years of hard work on the part of local residents and the State of Iowa, the lake is opening after being completely drained and refilled as part of its cleaning and rehabilitation. Fay Vittetoe of the Friends of Lake Darling has witnessed much of the Iowa Department of Natural Resources effort. After fourteen years and over 14 million dollars, I am honored to announce the reopening ribbon cutting of Lake Darling State Park, she said. The exemplary soil and water conservation practices completed in the Lake Darling Watershed and the public-private partnerships forged in the parks renovation and lakes restoration are in the spirit of Jay N. Ding Darlings trans-generational conservation ethic. The impressive resurrection of the once-polluted lake named for Jay N. Darling is the inspirational subject of a new Marvo documentary in partnership with Iowa Public Television. In conjunction with the Ribbon Cutting will be the renaming of nearby Highway 78 as the Ding Darling Memorial Highway. In keeping with Darlings legacy of leadership and conservation education, the Marvo documentary, Americas Darling: The Life of Jay N. Ding Darling, will be used as a case study of conservation leadership in a training program being developed by the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies Management Assistance Team (MAT). MAT provides leadership training for state, federal, non-governmental organizations and tribal conservation professionals around the country. More details to come.

ISLAND SUN JULY 11, 201424 Plant SmartBahama Strongbarkby Gerri ReavesIf Bahama strongbarks (Bourreria succulenta) wildlife friendliness, low-maintenance, and ornamental value dont convince you to include it in your landscape, consider that is in listed as endangered in Florida. Also called bodywood and strongback, its native habitat is coastal hammocks and the edges of woods. It grows as a shrub or small tree up to 30 feet in height in the wild, but about 15 to 20 feet in a home landscape. The drooping branches and bushy evergreen foliage provide food and cover for wildlife. Birds such as mockingbirds and catbirds eat the fruit, and the tree is a nectar plant for butterflies, including the Bahamian and giant swallowtail, the Julia, large orange sulphur, mangrove skipper and southern broken-dash. It attracts hummingbirds, too. The bark is rough, thin and reddish brown. The dullgreen oval leaves of about two to four inches long become smooth with age. Clusters of white fragrant flowers appear in late summer and fall. Five-petaled and bell-shaped, they measure about a half-inch across. The fleshy reddish-orange fruit at the branch ends is edible for people, but not palatable. High drought tolerance, moderate salt tolerance, fast growth and an ability to grow well in alkaline soil make this native tree hardy and versatile. Use it as a specimen plant or in a group to form a screen with the vine-like branches. Give it full sun to partial shade in well-drained soil. It can be propagated from the seeds, although not easily. Bahamians make a traditional vivifying tea from the bark. Sources: Trees of Everglades National Park and the Florida Keys by George B.

An Inside Look At Wildlife Recovery The CROW Picture Show presents informative anecdotes about the native and migratory wildlife species brought to the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, along with photos of patients admitted to the facility. In 2013, CROWs wildlife hospital cared for 3,391 sick, injured and orphaned animals. Of the 200 different species, 60 percent were birds, with 33 percent mammals and seven percent reptiles. CROW is not permitted to display its patients publically, so this presentation offers the next best thing: numerous candid snapshots of current and past patients, with commentary by Claudia Burns, a veteran clinic volunteer. The next CROW Picture Show will be held on Friday, July 18 at 11 a.m. in CROWs Visitor Education Center, located at 3883 Sanibel-Captiva Road (across from The Sanibel School). Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for teens, free for members and children 12 or under. The entry fee also includes access to the Visitor Education Center, which exhibits CROWs efforts to save wildlife through care, education and collaboration.

Leal, PhD, The Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum Curator and Director of EducationAlthough the shells from Southwest Florida, as a group, are probably among the best known in the world, there have been a few local species described in relatively recent years, and more are yet to be discovered and named. One of these newcomers is the black-foot slipper snail, Crepidula atrasolea, described in 2000 by Dr. Rachel Collin, now director of the Smithsonians Bocas del Toro Research Station in Panama. In 1997, as a University of Chicago Ph.D. student, Dr. Collin visited Sanibel under the auspices of The Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum. On that occasion, she collected flat, white slipper snails; which samples included not only the already known depressed slipper snail, Crepidula depressa Say, 1822, but also what turned out to be the new species. Both the depressed and the black-foot slipper snails have white, flat shells and live adhering to larger shells such as the lightning whelk and pen shells. One of the main differences that distinguish the black-foot slipper, however, is the much darker foot and general body coloration (in Latin, atra = black, solea = foot sole). Other differences are found at the anatomical and genetic levels. Learn more about the black-foot slipper snail at This Week At The Museum Six free shell crafting workshops with museum admission. Artist Karen Turner will teach guests of all ages to turn their shelling treasures into pieces of art. Classes run 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, July 23 (Theme: Critters) and August 6 (Jewelry making). No reservations are required.

The program begins at 11 a.m. in CROWs Visitor Education Center, located at 3883 Sanibel-Captiva Road. Snowy plovers are tiny shorebirds whose feathers are the color of sand. Their main defense is camouflage, so its almost impossible to see them unless theyre moving. Because they nest right on the beach, they are potential prey for a host of predators and are listed as threatened in the State of Florida. Sanibel Island is home to a significant population of snowy plovers, who are currently at the height of their breeding continued on page 28 Snowy plover with her chick photo by Heather Porter Lets SHOP Till We Drop Collars, Harnesses & Leads Great Pet Toys Pet Beds & Carriers Breed Speci c Items Cat Stuff Too!

BIG ARTS offers a fused glass workshop, with artwork by instructor Petra KaiserFrom page 28Secret Lives Of Snowy Ploversseason. In 2002, SCCF initiated their Snowy Plover Project, along with the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge and the City of Sanibel, to protect and study these vulnerable ground nesters. Staff members and volunteers comb the beach from midMarch through August for snowy plover nests, stake off the nests to prevent their inadvertent destruction by human activities, monitor the progress of each nest and record resulting data. Joel Caouette, SCCFs shorebird monitoring coordinator, will join Claudia Burns, long-time CROW and Snowy Plover Project volunteer, to present numerous photos of snowy plovers along with insights into their behavior, which is different than that of birds who nest in trees. Caouette will also display a diorama he created to show typical snowy plover habitat and behavior. This is a rare opportunity to learn about a threatened species that depends on Sanibels beach for its continued survival. Its also a chance to explore CROWs Visitor Education Center and learn more about the efforts to save wildlife through care, education and collaboration. Admission to CROW is $5 for adults, $3 for teens, and free for members and children 12 and under. For more information, call 472-3644 ext. 228.

31 ISLAND SUN JULY 11, 2014 Poets Corner selected by Tanya HochschildTelling Timeby Jean JensenI learned to tell time by the fragile tremor in my cracked bedroom window pane as the six oclock mail train rumbled over the crossing three miles distant. The soft chatter of glass rubbing against glass Ch,ch,ch,ch,ch,ch,ch. Soon the wail of the train whistle Whooooeeee! Whoooooeee! Coming closer, gaining speed, rolling past Woodfords Hill Hear the hiss-k-kiss-k-kiss of steel tracks as the train passes. Huddled in my upstairs bed I wait for the first birdcall of morning at mothers kitchen window feeder. Comes the call Chick-a-dee-dee chick-a-dee-dee-deee! On my bottom, I bump down the stairs eager to be released from the scary dark night. Greeted by the light of another day. Now in my seventh decade time tracks loud in the tunnels of my bones, makes wrinkles on my face, slooows my dance steps, calendar months cross off awaiting my childrens visits. Time measured by sunrises, sunsets, tarpon runs, stone crab and snowbird seasons, still I listen for morning to slip into my ears. Comes the joyful trill of the redwinged blackbird. Con-ker-ree! Con-ker-reeee! Telling me a new day begins. Jean Jensen, a member of Writers Group 2, has many poems dancing in her head. We invite submissions from local poets. Anyone interested may submit their work via email to tutsie@ Each week, individual work will be showcased.

But be careful to guide, not goad, others into following you. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Applying a more personal view to a job-linked issue could help provide better insight into those persistent problems. Use your keen Taurean logic to cut through the double-talk. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Taking some time off could be the best way to get through that seemingly endless round of demands. Youll return refreshed and ready to tackle things from a new perspective. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Restoring a sagging professional relationship takes a lot of effort. By all means, state your position. But also make sure you pay close attention to the other persons point of view. LEO (July 23 to August 22) A hot prospect intrigues the Big Cat, who is always on the prowl for a promising investment. But be careful that this promise has a chance of being kept. Check it out more carefully. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A friend could use some of your compassion and concern. If he or she doesnt ask for help, be sure you step up and make the first move. Also, check out a new career possibility. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You might have difficulty getting your opinions heard because of all the noise being made by the other side. But hang in there. Others should line up with you once they learn the facts. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Offering to help a colleague is commendable. But before you commit your time and effort, check to see if that persons situation is all that he or she has led you to believe it is. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) You soon should be seeing positive results from your recent efforts on behalf of a family member. On another matter, check that you have all the facts regarding a job assignment. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Your aspects favor closer family relationships this week. Take time for visits, whether in person, by phone, by mail or in cyberspace. Let them know how important they are to you. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A missed opportunity isnt always a negative. Maybe your instincts are telling you not to rush into something you thought was worthwhile. Make time for family this weekend. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Your sense of humor helps you get through a tricky situation. But some stick-in-the-muds might not be so willing to make the changes that you and others agree are necessary. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a gift for making everyone you know -or even just met -feel important and welcome in your life. On July 15, 1606, the Dutch master Rembrandt is born in Leiden. His portraits began to go out of style after the 1630s, when his human figures were criticized as being coarse and indecorous. On July 19, 1779, Massachusetts launches a 4,000-man naval expedition consisting of 19 warships, 24 transport ships and more than 1,000 militiamen to capture a 750-man British garrison on the Penobscot Peninsula. The failed expedition was considered the worst naval disaster in American history until the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. On July 18, 1914, convicted on meager evidence of murdering two Salt Lake City policemen, Wobbly Joe Hill is sentenced to be executed in Utah. Hill was a member of the International Workers of the World, called Wobblies. Scholars have debated whether Hill was railroaded because of his radical politics. On July 17, 1938, Douglas Wrong Way Corrigan, a glory-seeking flier, takes off from Brooklyn, pointed west. Twenty-eight hours later, Corrigan landed his plane in Dublin, Ireland, stepped out, and exclaimed, Just got in from New York. Where am I? On July 20, 1948, President Harry Truman institutes a military draft calling for nearly 10 million men to register within the next two months. Trumans decision underlined the urgency of his administrations concern about a possible military confrontation with the Soviet Union. On July 16, 1951, J.D. Salingers only novel, The Catcher in the Rye, is published by Little, Brown. The book, about a confused teenager disillusioned by the adult world, was an instant hit and was taught in high schools for half a century. The 31-year-old Salinger had worked on the novel for a decade. On July 14, 1974, U.S. Army Gen. Carl Spaatz, fighter pilot, dies in Washington, D.C., at age 83. In September 1947, Spaatz, an illustrious combat career behind him, was named the first chief of staff of the independent U.S. Air Force, which previously had been a unit of the Army. It was civil-rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. who made the following sage observation: Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity. In 1811, London became the first city in the world to reach the milestone population of 1 million. If youre like one-third of American men, youd like a shot at hosting The Tonight Show. You might think that hot dogs are a relatively recent food offering, but youd be wrong. The first sausages were created more than 3,500 years ago when ancient Babylonians began stuffing spiced meat into the intestines of animals. If you hear the word Bilbo you might think of a famously adventurous hobbit, but a bilbo also is a finely tempered Spanish sword. Elvis Presley reportedly was worth $10 million when he died in 1977. In Western medicine in the 19th century, experts believed in a phenomenon called maternal impressions, which posited that what a pregnant woman looked at could influence the appearance of her child. This belief set off a rush of pregnant Parisian women heading to the Louvre to gaze at the lovely artworks, hoping to give birth to attractive babies. If you were at a certain street corner in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, on a certain day in 1962, you would have seen a startling thing: After plunging through the atmosphere, a 21-pound chunk of the Soviet Sputnik IV spacecraft made impact at the corner of Park Street and North 8th Street. Half of first-time marriages in Kentucky involve teenagers. Those who study such things say that after Paul Revere made his famous midnight ride, he billed the Massachusetts state house 10 pounds, 4 shillings to cover his expenses. A mathematician is a device for turning coffee into theorems. -Paul Erdos THIS WEEK IN HISTORY THOUGHT FOR THE DAY STRANGE BUT TRUE

There are over 50 original paintings by skilled artists in a variety of media with different interesting subjects and creative compositions. Featured are local scenes painted during the weekly paint-outs. Many artists new to Florida soon learn they must modify their paint palette and change to Florida colors because the light and hue here often appear more vibrant than in northern states. Outdoor paint-outs are always a favorite among the participating artists, members and guests alike. Other meeting places include Bowmans Beach, Blind Pass, the Sanibel Lighthouse and JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge. Tourists enjoy observing the artists create extraordinary interpretations of local scenes. Seasonally, each Thursday morning the artists meet at a different island location to paint and then gather for lunch and a critique. The variety of individual styles fascinates everyone at these encouraging critiques. Many of the scenic paintings are shown in local galleries throughout the year and are favored by viewers who wish to purchase a little of the islands to take back north. For more information, call the Sanibel Public Library at 472-2483 or visit www.sanlib. org. For Art League information, write to P.O. Box 1192, Sanibel, FL 33957 or log on to www.

ISLAND SUN JULY 11, 201440 Hortoons A Magnificent Musical At Broadway Palmby Di SaggauJoseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat meets all expectations for all ages. The choreography, costumes and songs keep your toes tapping all evening. The cast does a superb job. The Andrew Lloyd Webber/Tim Rice hit tells the compelling story from the Old Testament through song and dance with a narrator filling in the blanks. We follow Joseph on his amazing journey. Sibling rivalry causes his eleven brothers to sell him into slavery in Egypt. They are jealous of the coat of many colors given to Joseph by his father. Due to Josephs great gift of interpreting dreams, he soon rises to become Pharaohs chief advisor. April Monte is the Narrator and Jesse Corbin is Joseph. Their easy-to-listen to pop styles are exactly what the show needs and they have good presences on stage. Songs include One More Angel In Heaven, done in a Western hoedown style complete with singing cowboys and even a singing cactus. Go, Go, Go Joseph is another outstanding number that closes the first act and leaves the audience looking forward to what comes next. Drew Stark as the pharaoh, transforms quickly into an Elvis impersonator, which is a real crowd pleaser. Those Canaan Days is sung as an Edith Piaf parody and theres even a Calypso number sung by Josephs brothers. The musical numbers are outstanding, as is the choreography by Amy Marie McCleary. Twenty-four local children are cast into two teams which alternate performances. The talented cast consists of 20 adults, some alumni and new faces too. The production sports a lot of color in the costumes and even adds a new twist that Ill refrain from mentioning. Joseph is a delight from start to finish. It will always remain one of my favorite shows. Its still a spectacle pleasing audiences after nearly 50 years. Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat plays through August 16 at Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre. Reservations can be made by calling 278-4422, by visiting www. or by stopping by the box office at 1380 Colonial Boulevard in Fort Myers.

41 ISLAND SUN JULY 11, 2014 Book Club Selectionsby Di SaggauThe Light Between Oceans, a novel by M.L. Stedman, tells an irresistible and heartbreaking tale of love and loss, right and wrong and the consequences of our moral choices. Tom Sherbourne is trying to forget the horrors of war on the Western Front, so he takes a job as the lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, nearly a half-day journey from civilization. He must turn to something solid, because if he didnt, who knew where his mind or his soul could blow away to like a balloon without ballast. That was the only thing that had got him through four years of blood and madness: know exactly where your gun is when you doze for 10 minutes in your dugout: always check your gas mask: see that your men have understood their orders to the letter. ou dont think ahead in years or months: you think about this hour, and maybe the next. Anything else is just speculation. From The Light Between Oceans Eventually, he brings his young, loving wife Isabel to the isolated island and they forge a lonely but content life together. Over the years, Isabel has two miscarriages and one stillbirth and while still grieving, she hears a babys cry coming from a boat that has washed up on shore. In the boat is a dead man and a living baby. Isabel quickly falls in love with the child and feels she is Gods answer to her prayers. Against Toms better judgement, they keep the child and raise her as their own, naming her Lucy. When she is 2 years old, both Tom and Isabel return to the continued on page 49 Author To Be Keynote Speaker At LuncheonThe author of Frederick Douglass Republicans The Movement To Re-Ignite Americas Passion For Liberty, KCarl Smith will be the keynote speaker at the Lee Republican Womens Federated luncheon on Thursday, September 11 at The Edison Restaurant in Fort Myers. Smith loves his country and is an unyielding defender of the Constitution and liberty. A former Army officer and motivational speaker who has become a sought-after political activist, his quest is simple: re-ignite Americas passion for liberty and help shape a new Republican Party. Smiths commitment to the guiding principles of the Founding Fathers led him to launch the Frederick Douglass Republican Movement, a grassroots initiative to enlighten, educate, empower and equip its members based on the Frederick Douglass Republican Methodology. This is a unique and powerfully effective strategy to: Re-ignite Americas passion for liberty Help the Republican Party recapture its political distinction Save the souls of the politically lost Promote racial unity Create an atmosphere for political dialogue without the accusation of racism or Uncle Tomism Trump the race card. A political motivator, Smith captivates and inspires audiences with infectious energy, compassion and satire. He brings his expertise and provides down-to-earth solutions on how the conservative movement can broaden its base. His presentations serve as a beacon of hope for those who hold liberty in high-esteem. Smith leaves audiences ready to take action; action which could change the political landscape of America.

ISLAND SUN JULY 11, 201442 Sanctuarys Pro Gives Campers Golfing Basicsby Jeff LysiakA new generation of golfers is being introduced to the sport, thanks to an ongoing program between the Sanibel Recreation Centers summer day camp and The Sanctuary Golf Club. Every Wednesday morning throughout the camp, two groups of youngsters fourth and fifth graders as well as sixth through eighth graders visit the club and are taught the basics of the game by Jon Pazdera, head golf professional at The Sanctuary Golf Club. We cover a different topic every week, said Pazdera. We started at the green and are working our way backwards. Several weeks ago, the campers began to familiarize themselves with their equipment, starting with lessons at The Sanctuarys chipping green. Then, Pazdera moved on to driver play and which clubs should be used for different distances and situations. Im doing a review, week-to-week, to make sure everyone is grasping what theyre learning, he added. One participant, 8-year-old Diego Monteiro, had never played golf before coming to summer camp. Its pretty fun but its very different from any sport Ive ever played, said Monteiro. I like that you dont have to aim for one single spot you have to try and figure out what club to use wherever your ball lands. Another camper, 9-year-old Allie Hansen, is building upon the golf skills shes learned during previous outings on the course. Im hitting the ball better Ive learned about how important it is to bend your knees so the ball goes farther, she said. And it feels really good when your ball drops into the hole. Pazdera spends two hours each week (from 9 to 10 a.m. with the first group Jon Pazdera, head golf professional at The Sanctuary Golf Club, offers summer camp participant Seth Stanley advice on how to improve his swing Allie Hansen takes a swing at The Sanctuarys driving range under the watchful eye of Jon Pazdera ENGEL & VLKERSIsabella Rasi 239-246-4716 Campers exchange clubs with assistance from Jon Pazdera Jon Pazdera watches young campers try out their new swings at the driving range


and 10 to 11 a.m. with the second) with the campers, which allows the teens and tweens enough time to both understand the lessons and have fun trying out their new skills on the golf course, driving range and putting green. Its nice to see how these kids are improving from one week to the next, said Pazdera. Other activities offered to summer day camp participants include the SanibelCaptiva Optimist Clubs Junior Angler fishing program, archery, skateboarding and razor scooter riding, paddleboarding, horseback riding, basketball, tennis, swimming, gymnastics, dancing, arts and crafts, field trips, special guests and live entertainment. Among the special activities offered this summer are bus excursions to baseball games in Fort Myers and Tampa, field trips to Lion Country Safari, Legoland and Punta Rassa mud flats along with visits from magician Brian Boyd, inflatable water slides and a cardboard box boat race. For more information, call the rec center at 472-0345. Jon Pazdera shared his knowledge of the game with Sanibel Rec Center summer campers last week Heidrick Receives Prestigious HonorChris Heidrick, CPCU, CFP, ANFI, received the prestigious Chairmans Award from the Florida Association of Insurance Agents (FAIA) at its recent 110th Annual Conference in Orlando. The award is presented annually to a member whose attitude, spirit and efforts inspire others to be their best. Heidrick, a for mer insurance executive, is the principal of Heidrick & Co. Insurance on Sanibel and one of the few insurance agents nationwide to hold the Associate in Flood Insurance designation. Sam Rogers Jr., chairman of FAIA, cited Heidricks tir eless work on flood insurance issues in the presentation of the award. Rogers noted that, through live presentations and webinars, Chris educated more than 2,000 Florida insurance agents about the impacts of the Biggert-Waters Act of 2012 (BW12) on flood insurance in our state. He also taught at the national level through the Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of America (IIABA or Big I). Additionally, over the last 18 months, Heidrick has educated many local residents and officials through presentations to several local governments, homeowner associations, professional associations and civic groups. In February, Heidrick joined Lee County Commissioner Larry Kiker, Sanibel Mayor Kevin Ruane and several other Lee County mayors in Washington, DC to present suggestions for reasonable flood insurance reform. Most of the ideas presented by the Lee County contingent were included in The Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act, signed by President Obama in late March. The Act successfully removed the most harmful provisions of BW-12, which threatened the local economy. I am grateful to be recognized by the Association, said Heidrick. I am heavily involved in flood insurance issues not for recognition, but rather because it is the right thing to do for my clients and our local residents. FAIA is a state trade association affiliated with the IIABA. FAIA represents more than 2,100 insurance agencies employing over 25,000 licensed insurance agents in Florida.

Chris Heidrick, center, receiving the award Meghan Riley, visiting from Virginia Beach, Virginia found a junonia while shelling just south of the highway bridge at Blind Pass Inlet on July 5. Using a mask, she found it rolling on the bottom about 10 feet from the shoreline, in about 10 inches of water. We had a great time shelling and spending the July 4th holiday on the island, said Riley.

Each week, Baileys General Store provides the bait, while Tarpon Bay Explorers provides the gear. The past two weeks, the campers ventured into Tarpon Bay with two boats furnished by Tarpon Bay Explorers and two experienced fishing captains at their disposal. The campers were ambitious and optimistic. When asked what they planned on catching, one young angler answered, I am going to catch a tarpon! Though no tarpon were caught, campers were not disappointed with their haul. The first week, 11 campers reeled in over 40 fish consisting of sea trout, jack crevalle and ladyfish. The second week, the kids reeled in over 20 fish including mangrove snapper, needlefish and jack crevalle. We are going to be optimistic and say we will be catching and not fishing today, said Stan Howard, president of the Optimist Club.

Record-Breaking World Cup TV Audience For Team USAby Ed FrankCould the euphoria over soccers World Cup, and the blockbuster interest in the United States team, portray a permanent escalating following of the sport we call a beautiful game? True, the U.S. team was eliminated by Belgium in the Round of 16, but the World Cup TV audience in this country watching that extra-time loss was all-time high. Remember that the game was played in the afternoon. Can you imagine the millions more who would have seen it if played at night? An estimated 21.59 million Americans tuned in to watch the game and 25.2 million watched the earlier U.S. vs. Portugal 2-2 draw. To put those figures into perspective, they are higher than any World Series game or NBA finals, and are comparable to any of footballs BCS title games all played in prime time. Had the U.S. team defeated Belgium to advance to the quarterfinals, the TV ranking would have been off the charts, according to Artie Bulgrin, ESPNs senior vice president for global research. Theres no question that the World Cup is in a class by itself in terms of interest, he said. We know that soccer is by far the most popular sport worldwide. We also know that interest in the U.S. is growing rapidly. Studies show that increasing number of parents are pushing their youngsters into the sport due to injuries associated with other sports, particularly football. The World Cup will accelerate that trend. The fact that the U.S. team advanced to the Round of 16 two consecutive times is a great accomplishment, considering that the U.S. didnt even qualify for the tournament from 1954 to 1986. Its true that the U.S. is not yet a powerhouse like Brazil or Argentina, but it has proven it is one of the 16 best teams in the world a significant accomplishment in a relatively short time. And that surge in talent and interest will continue to grow. Thats for certain. Miracle Home This Weekend After 10-6 Second-Half Start The Fort Myers Miracle baseball team returns to Hammond Stadium this weekend for a four-game series against Dunedin. The first pitch on Friday is 7:05 p.m. followed by a 6:05 p.m. start on Saturday, a Sunday matinee at 4:05 p.m. and the series closing at 7:05 p.m. on Monday. Following a 10-6 victory last Sunday over first-place St. Lucie, the Miracles second-half season record was 10 wins and six losses, which left the team in third place in the Florida State Leagues South Division. Pitcher Jose Berrios continues to lead the team with a 9-3 record and a low 1.96 ERA. Former Edison Player Now Head Baseball CoachJamie Corr started his college baseball career as a utility player for Edison Community College in 1993. Fast forward to 2014 and he returns as the head baseball coach for the newly-named Florida SouthWestern State College (FSW). His first day on the job will be July 17. It really amazed me the quantity and quality of applicants for our head baseball coach position, said Carl McAloose, Director of Athletics, FSW. We had incredible talent, including very successful NCAA I and II coaches apply for this position, and among all of this talent, we felt coach Corr was the best fit for us. His experience as a successful program builder and a winner combined with the fact that he wore our uniform during his college days separated him from an incredible field of coaching candidates. With the City of Palms being our home, a beautiful campus, and now with Coach Corr leading the team, I expect a very exciting and successful future for FSW baseball. I am very excited and very honored to have this opportunity to return to Edison, now Florida SouthWestern and lead the Buccaneers, said Corr. I have a lot of fond memories of the area. Ill be hitting the recruitment trail hard to find young men who will represent FSW in a first-class manner. With the beautiful City of Palms Stadium, I know we can recruit players who will have not only an incredible playing experience, but also get an excellent education. Corr joins FSW after leading Lambert High School in Cumming, Georgia to the USA Today and Collegiate Baseball National Championship and winning the 6A State Championship with a 36-2 record. Corr was named the USA Today National Coach of the Year. Corr joins new Buccaneers softball coach Robert Iamurri, who also was bestowed the honor of being named national coach of the year. Corr opened the program at Lambert High School in 2009 and built the baseball team into a state powerhouse, quickly bringing national credibility to the program. Prior to Lambert, he was the head coach at South Forsyth High in Cumming, Georgia where he led the team to a #1 ranking in the state and was the 5A state runner-up. Corr has collegiate coaching experience at Darton College in Albany, Georgia; Augusta State University and Valdosta State University. Jamie is going to do a wonderful job and bring a lot of energy to the program. Hes an all-in type of guy, said Dave Tollett, head baseball coach at Florida Gulf Coast University. It will be great for us because in 15 minutes we can be there to watch FSW play. We would love to get some FSW players; its good to have another baseball program in town. Jamie is fundamentally sound and pays attention to detail. His players play with a lot of passion, said Scott Stricklin, head baseball coach at University of Georgia. He really knows the game and is a very good teacher. Theres no question he will have great players, which I would be interested in for my team. He is one of the best high school coaches in the state (of Georgia) and knows how to develop players, added Danny Hall, head baseball coach at Georgia Tech University. Hell hit the ground running because he knows what a good player looks like. As a coach, hes very fair, but also demanding. SPORTS QUIZ 1.

ISLAND SUN JULY 11, 201446 Island Landscaper Lends Hand In Saving Vandalized Refuge Trees Landscaper Robert Walton with Grounds By Green Ways on Sanibel Island has donated his expertise, time and materials to mask and mend gumbo limbo trees along the Calusa Shell Mound Trail at the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, trees that have been compromised by graffiti vandalism. Since 2010, the amount of carved graffiti on the trees has increased significantly. This week, Walton showed refuge interns how to wrap seven damaged trees with biodegradable, corn-based landscape fabric that is rated to last 10 years. Rob has advised us to cover the graffiti with landscape fabric to protect the trees from disease and allow the scarred trees to heal faster, said Supervisory Refuge Ranger Toni Westland. We hope this will also deter further vandalism. Seeing the graffiti seems to encourage more of it. We saw some fresh graffiti again when we went out to wrap this week. Gumbo limbos are native island trees nicknamed tourist trees because their red, peeling bark resembles sunburnt tourists. The gumbo limbos soft, smooth bark is also more susceptible to vandals destructively carving their identity or affections into the vulnerable trees. Harming refuge wildlife and vandalizing federal property is unlawful. Anyone with information about this or any other vandalism on the refuge should contact Toni Westland at 472-1100 ext. 237.

Working closely with Koss on Darling endowment and copyright issues, Giattini became good friends with the Darling family during his board tenure and has continued the relationship after Koss passing last year. In appointing Marc to the special counsel position, we are recognizing his past and continuing vital contributions to the society, added McCabe. Giattini currently is working on several projects for DDWS, including the review of contracts for the forthcoming Discover Ding game and education app to debut this fall during Ding Darling Days, scheduled for October 19 to 25. Succeeding Kip as special counsel is a great personal and professional honor, said Giattini. I look forward to continuing to serve DDWS in any way I can. As a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, DDWS works to support the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuges mission of conservation, wildlife and habitat protection, research and public education through charitable donations and Refuge Nature Shop proceeds.

July 4th Celebration At Jerrys Foods Supporting The Boy Scouts Of America 47 ISLAND SUN JULY 11, 2014


ISLAND SUN JULY 11, 201448 School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, Summer boredom has hit at my house. The kids are not interested in doing much and they really dont want to do reading and math practice. Please give me some ideas to keep them going and practice their reading and math skills. Lee F., Sanibel Lee, Its easy to lose steam during the summer months, but it is important to keep going with academic practice since we all know that kids skills regress during (any) vacation period. Here are some ideas for you for reading, writing and math activities. Some good activities that re-enforce reading and writing are: Write a comic strip. Read books about summer activities before heading to the beach or a baseball game, pick out a book that discusses the activity. Email friends and family. Encourage reading in bead even if it pushes bedtimes. Allow your children to read in bed, even allowing them to stay up later as long as they are reading. Read everywhere. Read street signs, billboards and anything else you can find while youre on the go this summer. Read aloud every day! Here are some ideas to keep math skills sharp: Play board games. Board games build thinking skills and are a fun way for kids to play and learn over the summer. Track daily temperatures, humidity, rainfall and make a graph of each one. Calculate your familys emissions. Use the EPA personal emissions calculator to discover your emissions as a family, and discuss how you can improve. Count money when playing Monopoly. Let the kids act as the banker. Make grocery store visits educational ask each child to see if they can buy a complete family dinner for $10 These activities should help pass the summer doldrums with a bit more fun while keeping those important skills current for the next school year. Shelley Greggs is adjunct faculty at Edison State College where she teaches psychology and education courses. Shelley is also Nationally Certified School Psychologist and consultant for School Consultation Services, a private educational consulting company.

School Supply Drive Under WayDid you know that required school supplies cost between $75 and $150 per child in Lee County public schools? Each year, students are required to purchase a specific list for their grade level. During the month of July, the ShopOnSanibel merchants have joined forces with Friends Who Care, an island group known for assisting local families experiencing financial difficulties, in collecting money to purchase required school supplies. The funds are used to purchase Target gift cards, which are then distributed to children through our local FISH organization. Since each students list is so specific, it is best if they receive gift cards so they can purchase what their teacher requires for their classroom, said Theresa Louwers of Friends Who Care. For additional information on Friends Who Care, call 472-5152. Friends Who Care is invaluable partner with FISH in assisting families in preparing for the school year, said Christine Swiersz, social worker at FISH. By providing needed school supplies, they help the children being the school year in a very positive way. Visit for more information. The ShopOnSanibel merchants are pleased to be a part of this community collaboration to make sure the children have the required supplies as they being their school year, added Barbara Harrington of RLR Investments, LLC.

49 ISLAND SUN JULY 11, 2014 Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellWith small town flair, Sanibel celebrates July 4 in a big way and SanibelCaptiva Rotarians always look forward to participating in the parade. Our new club president, Bill Rahe, was in charge of our float this year and he and his float crew did one bang up job. I dont know how he finds the time and energy to do some of the projects he comes up with, but Rotarians know that when he makes up his mind to do something, it gets done and done right. He has a lot of people to thank for carrying out his design concept including Rotary members and extended Rotary family. The float construction team was Lee Almas, the John Grey paint crew, Dan Hahn, Walter Hendry, Larry Martin, Mike Raab, Chet Sadler, RJ Zcerepak and some supervisors. Special thanks to Henry Nachtsheim for the use of his trailer. The crew built a large seating platform, an eight-foot working Ferris wheel, and a frame system that held a large American flag upright about another four feet above and in back of the Ferris wheel. Decorated in red, white and blue, our Rotary float did make a statement. Leading our float in the parade was Scot Congress and his daughter Rebecca in their golf cart carrying a framed SanibelCaptiva Rotary club banner. Great job everyone. Float riders were Lee Almas, Brian and Gina Boyd, Chris DeCosta, Shirley Jewell, Holli Martin, Joel Ospa, Mike Raab, Bill Rahe, Chet Sadler, Rachael and Liam Tritaik, and Alex Werner. Rotary would also like to thank Larry Martin for his skillful driving, pulling the float trailer. After the parade, Rotarians and their families were invited to join Scot and Melissa Congress for a Fourth of July celebration at their house. This was the perfect setting to celebrate this wonderful holiday for all Americans; great country, great friends and great food. Let freedom ring! Rahe laid out an impressive presentation detailing the clubs goals for next year. As they say, it takes a village to raise a child. It takes a caring community and dedicated Rotarians to support the many projects that provide an avenue for Rotarians to accomplish their goals and fulfill their commitment to Rotary International. One of the most important goals for Sanibel-Captiva Rotarians this year will be encouraging the growth in club membership. This past year, our club inducted seven new members and the membership committee has set a goal to increase that number. Membership is the life-blood of service organizations. Rahe has come up with a new idea for a club fundraising activity to benefit the following community non-profits: Sanibel Historical Museum & Village, Human Trafficking Awareness Partnership and BIG ARTS. On April 9, Sanibel-Captiva Rotary will hold a fundraiser, Unsinkable Women, starring the award-winning New York actress Deborah Jean Templin. I will be writing more about this in future Rotary Happenings or you can view more information at www.sanibelrotary. com. Plans for Rotary this year include many giving opportunities including seeking matching funds for community, national and international projects through our Rotary District 6960 and Rotary International. We will have a busy year but we are also expanding our fellowship activities next year. Plans for these activities are presently in the investigative mode. With emphasis on club member involvement, Rahe presented slides diagraming club administrative staff responsibilities. It is going to be a terrific year and Rotarians are excited to be working with him, that is, if we can keep up with him. The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets at 7 a.m. every Friday at The Dunes Golf and Tennis Club, 949 Sand Castle Road.

ISLAND SUN JULY 11, 201452 Zurbriggen Financial Sponsors 10K Race 4 FISHZurbriggen Financial has been added as a Silver Sponsor of the 10K Race 4 FISH, an annual event that supports the island non-profit organization FISH of Sanibel-Captiva, Inc. I believe FISH does an amazing job supporting those in need, said Rick Zurbriggen, president. I am excited to be a part of it. FISH has been fulfilling its mission of neighbors helping neighbors on Sanibel and Captiva for the past 30 years. It has lent a helping hand to thousands of individuals and households in need through various programs, all through the generosity and support of its community. It is our organizations goal to continue to grow in the breadth of services offered while helping our clients, said John Pryor, FISH vice-president and 10K committee co-chairman. We look to improve the quality of life while moving toward a common goal of helping people live independently with dignity in their homes. Last year, its dedicated team of volunteers transported clients to 193 nonemergency medical-related appointments, delivered 2,565 hot nutritious meals to clients with limited mobility and provided friendly visits to those who needed companionship. Volunteers gave 6,311 hours of service and drove 27,319 miles on behalf of FISH and its clients in 2013. Sanibel is an unbelievable place to volunteer, added Zurbriggen, a Sanibel resident. We love the small town feel of this island and find it to be an amazing place to live, work and volunteer. Zurbriggen and his wife Evette, who has been a part of Zurbriggen Financial since the beginning, raised their two sons, Derick and Kyle, on the island. They volunteer with the youth H2O program at Sanibel Community Church as well as on mission trips. Their firm has been offering comprehensive wealth management to successful retirees and business owners since 1983 and on Sanibel since 2003. Rick and Evette Zurbriggen at Zurbriggen Financial are fine supporters of the FISH mission, Pryor said. We are ever grateful to them and many others for their contributions, which allows us to continue our social investment in the community. The 6th annual 10K Race 4 FISH starts and finishes at The Community House, located along the islands main thoroughfare Periwinkle Way. The race is set for 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, October 18. Runners can register with the Fort Myers Track Club or by downloading a registration form, available at There are a variety of 10K Race sponsorship slots available Gold, Silver, Bronze or Friend.

(239) 472-3688Youll Appreciate the Difference Superior InteriorsShopping For New Wood Furniture?by Cindy MalszyckiThere are many things for you to consider before beginning your buying adventure for new wood furniture. Things like the size of the piece, how it will be used and the type of wood, color and finish you would prefer. Youll also need to think about the construction of your furniture, which will help you see if the price is right. Here are some important considerations you might want to investigate before you purchase: Furniture can be made of hard woods (maple, ash, oak and walnut) or soft wood, like pine. Trees that lose their leaves are hard woods. Trees that retain their leaves are soft woods. If your looking to add a desk to your newly-designed home office, a pine desk might not be the perfect choice... unless you use protection on the desk top. Scratches and dents are very visible, and easy to accomplish with soft wood furniture. Furniture can also be either solid wood, laminate or veneer. Laminate is a layer of wood or other product that is applied over a wood frame. Veneer is composed of layers of wood applied again and again over a wood frame. Veneers give a variety of patterns to the wood, which definitely tends to make furniture more exciting. Check out the drawers. In well constructed furniture, they should be smooth to the touch on all sides. If the drawer is rough, chances are the quality may be also. How are the corners of your drawers joined? Dovetail joints are common in quality construction, but must be done on all four corners. In addition, corner blocking should include double dowels, which have been screwed and glued into place. Corner blocking in this manner is a cornerstone of quality construction. Granted, you have a lot to think about when looking for wood furniture for your home. But when you make the right, quality selection, with the help of the professional decorators at Decorating Den Interiors, you will have a piece that will be perfect for your room... and will last a lifetime!

53 ISLAND SUN JULY 11, 2014 The estate planning complexities surrounding second marriages with blended families are largely under-estimated not only by clients, but by their attorneys. Since second (and even third) marriages are becoming more common, it is not unusual for a married couple to each have adult children from prior marriages. When you link these parties in an estate plan, sometimes things can go terribly wrong. When completing estate plans in second marriage situations, the challenge includes how to provide for ones surviving spouse for the rest of her or his life, while at the same time preserving assets and equity for ones children. The typical response is a Marital or QTIP trust that pays the surviving spouse income and may also provide for discretionary principal distributions for the spouses health, maintenance and support. At the surviving spouses death, the remaining assets of the Marital Trust are then distributed to the children. While such Marital Trusts are useful tools to accomplish these goals, careful and deliberate consideration should be given to a variety of factors that may exist. If, for example, ones spouse is closer in age to ones children then oneself, there is the distinct possibility that the spouse survives the children, effectively removing them from the line of inheritance. While grandchildren may reap those benefits, this may not be consistent with the testators intent. Even where the spouse is not close in age to the testators children, there are other emotional, familial and financial issues to consider. Marital Trusts, by definition, economically bind the surviving spouse to his or her step-children. The parties may enjoy a superb familial relationship, or they may not. But once the glue that holds these parties together has died, the relationship may become a purely economic one. And whether the parties acknowledge it or not, the economic relationship is adverse. Every dollar that step-parent spends from the Marital Trust will one day result in the children receiving one less dollar (or perhaps even less when one considers the opportunity cost of compounding interest). Whoever the trustee is has a difficult job of balancing investments inside of a Marital Trust. The surviving spouse wants to maximize income while the children call for growth. Difficult decisions confront the trustee when considering whether to distribute additional amounts that the surviving spouse may request when home repairs, new cars or other major expenses loom. IRAs, 401(k)s, pensions and profit sharing plans (Ill just blanket all of these types of accounts by calling them IRAs) pose an even greater challenge. Naming a Marital Trust as the beneficiary to IRA accounts may only serve to result in higher income tax costs since the Required Minimum Distributions will eventually exhaust the account over time if the surviving spouse lives long enough. The alternative is to simply name the surviving spouse as the primary beneficiary. But when the surviving spouse is named as the primary beneficiary, he or she can roll over the IRA into their own IRA. Now the surviving spouse has the ability to name whomever they want as their beneficiary. There is no guarantee that the children of the first deceased spouse will inherit anything from the IRA account at the surviving spouses death. When IRA accounts are a significant portion of ones estate, one may consider an annuity as an alternative. Annuities, by definition, are wasting assets in that their distributions consist not only of earnings (interest and dividends) but of return of capital (principal). As such, the income stream distributed by annuities tend to be higher than simply income that may be earned on investments. Depending upon the situation, one might be able to divide up ones IRA account into separate accounts to take care of a surviving spouse and children immediately upon death. In other words, one portion may include an annuity inside of the IRA that guarantees an income stream to the surviving spouse. All parties know and recognize that this portion of the IRA will likely be fully consumed and not end up with the children. The advantage to an annuity over simply bequeathing investment assets is that the annuity company guarantees the payout over the surviving spouses lifetime, no matter how long he or she lives. The balance of the divided IRA account can name the children as direct beneficiaries. Using this approach, the children dont have to wait until their step-parents death before receiving at least a portion of their inheritance. The surviving spouse/step-parent, on the other hand, has an income stream that wont be scrutinized since the children would have no expectations of receiving any amounts from that portion of the estate. There are many nuances to this approach that need to be carefully considered with legal, tax and financial counsel. Nevertheless, the thought of unbinding a surviving spouse to his or her step-children is worth considering, and may result in better familial relationships into the future since the parties are not tied to one another economically as they otherwise would have been.

A mother and daughter team, Lizzie is a retired RN and health educator, and Pryce is a licensed psychotherapist in private practice who specializes in the care of elders and people with chronic illnesses. Dear Mom & Me, I have been retired for several years, and we live in a beautiful area, surrounded by retirees and other age groups. My wife and I have a very active social life that we enjoy. My only complaint is that neither of us ever gets the opportunity to dress up. All of my good suits, ties, tuxedo, etc. are wearing out on their hangers and my wife complains about the same thing. Everybody seems to be so casually dressed, even doctors, dentists and attorneys are casually dressed on the job. Only once did we attend a cocktail party given by an investment firm at six oclock, and we saw young men in suits and young women in dresses 10 inches above their knees and two sizes too small. One very successful retiree wears casual slacks, refuses to wear a jacket and only wears sweaters and heavy shirts. He refuses to wear socks even with his suedelined shoes. Is it us or should we just pile up our clothing and donate it to charity? Fred Dear Fred, I think you have nailed it. It is the same where I live. When I go into stores and see all of the dresses, I cant help but wonder who is buying all of this stuff? A friend commented that she wanted a new dress to wear to her nieces wedding. She tried but all of the dresses were eight inches above the knee and neckline to the waist. Mens clothing stores are advertising on TV suits, dress shirts and ties, and I wonder who is buying all of these things? Certainly not where I live. We must adjust to our environment and wear what the others wear; otherwise, we will look like dinosaurs. Maybe we should get out the plastic bags, fill them up with our stuff and take them to charity outlets who knows, they may not even take them. Lizzie Dear Fred, If you like to dress up, find opportunities to dress up like season tickets to the symphony, a dance and social club, for example. But overall, I agree people in general are not dressing up as much.

My muscles dont recover quite as fast as when I was younger. What can I do or take? HN, Boulder, Colorado If it were me, Id take a hot bath with Epsom salts and a few drops of essential oils. The most important muscle relaxers include cypress, wintergreen, rosemary or basil. In fact, if you plan on working out hard, just rub a few drops of the oil into your muscles. If you feel the need, you could always ask your doctor if an over-the-counter pain reliever is OK for you. Even though they are sold without prescription, they have interactions, they affect the stomach or liver, and they have cautions so Im not sure what is right for you. Heres the thing though, most people suffer with chronic muscle soreness, they dont just overdo it from a hike or a horseback ride. If your muscles hurt all the time, or feel weak, I suggest you look in your medicine cabinet. Over 300 medications rob your body of CoQ10 (ubiquinol) and that can lead to muscle weakness, spasms, leg cramps, charley horses and other problems. Cholesterol drugs and blood pressure pills are the most infamous culprits, but it can also happen with diuretics, estrogen hormones, steroids and antibiotics. I wrote the book on this topic of nutrient depletion, so please refer to your copy of Drug Muggers for more on that. Lets get back to acute muscle pain now. The three most popular pain relieving medications are acetaminophen (Tylenol), ibuprofen (Advil) and naproxen (Aleve). Natural anti-inflammatories wont work quite as fast but they deserve honorable mention because they have other incredible health benefits. For example, boswellia, curcurmin and bromelain are known to have natural pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties. Moist Heat Therapy Pads: These non-medicated, odorless pads are sold by various companies and some of them are even air-activated so they get kind of toasty on your skin, very similar to the moist heat of a shower. They help ease muscle/joint aches or pain associated with PMS, overexertion and strains for up to eight hours. Menthol medicated patches and creams: This creates a unique cooling sensation on the skin, but it doesnt support muscle health or heal the problem. MSM creams and lotions: Theres debate about whether this goes into the skin or not, but I think it does. In fact, many people report benefits from these products, especially with flexibility, muscle cramps, spasms, minor joint pain and knee pain. Capsaicin: Its the active ingredient in chili pepper and you can buy it at pharmacies nationwide. I suggest the patches or roll-on for ease but you can use a lotion (just wash your hands). These work fabulously for me, especially around my tight traps and you get even better results with repeated applications. Malic acid and magnesium: These are two supplements that I consider a onetwo punch for muscle pain. They help with anxiety and muscle tenderness.

Got A Problem? Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: I am a people pleaser and I am getting taken advantage of, yet I dont know how to stop. Can you help?A: If you learned you had a lifethreatening illness, you would drop everything to seek treatment. People pleasing, in essence, is the need to avoid conflict and make everyone else happy. This has consequences to your mental and physical well-being, for you are putting yourself in an exhausting process instead of having a pleasant, relaxing conversation with others. Those consequences include lack of self-esteem, judgmentalism, anxiety, depression, resentment and even physical danger. For whatever reason you have been this victim role, it is important that you learn some tools to get out of victim consciousness. This may be your toughest, yet most rewarding journey. First, learning how to say no is a great start. Saying no means yes for you. It gives you a sense of empowerment and helps with boundary setting. I would suggest that you hire a results-oriented coach or therapist who can make observations and give constructive feedback about the gifts and challenges in your family of origin to help you understand how you can begin to identify your strengths and challenges in saying no, making requests and speaking authentically. Eden Energy MedicineDaily Exercises To Support The Eyesby Karen L.

Start at the nose, circle the right eye then back to the nose and circle the left eye. Now go in the opposite direction. Then take both hands and start about 12 inches from your eyes and make figure 8s that move toward the eyes and then back out 12 inches to the starting point. Do this about six to eight times. 2. Thump your K-27 points and do the Crown Pull (part of the 5-Minute Routine). See prior columns for details if this is not familiar to you. 3. Rinse you reading glasses in cold water daily, since they retain trapped energy. 4.
