On Sunday morning, fire officials and refuge staff began conducting a series of prescribed burns starting with a four-unit section of the Bailey Tract and followed by 150 acres near Legion Curve and 90 acres along a stretch of Sanibel-Captiva Road which should complete all planned controlled burns scheduled to take place this summer. During last weeks public information session, which was led by Supervisory Refuge Ranger and Public Information Officer Toni Westland, fire officials and prescribed burn partners explained that careful planning and conducting managed burns can prevent the continued on page 10 Fire-in-progress at the Bailey Tract taken on the morning of July 13 photo by Toni Westland Sea Turtles Nesting In Record Numbersby Jeff LysiakLocal businesses and residents of Sanibel and Captiva universally agree that the 2013-14 inseason for tourism was the highest in recent memory. However, another group of visitors to the islands this summer has shattered the record books. On July 7, when sea turtle program permittee Tom Krekel recorded the 70th nest, it established a new mark for nesting activity on Sanibels east end. Weve already broken the record, and theres still about a month left for nesting season, said Kelly Sloan, sea turtle program coordinator for the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF). Weve been really busy the turtles and volunteers have all been working hard this summer. Last Friday morning, SCCF updated its sea turtle nesting statistics. Reported were 73 loggerhead nests and one green sea turtle nest on Sanibels east end, 237 nests on Sanibels west end and 101 nests on Captiva. By way of comparison, by the same date last year, SCCF had reported 44 nests on Sanibels east end, 208 loggerhead and seven green sea turtle nests on Sanibels west end, and 99 loggerhead and one green sea turtle nest on Captiva. The previous highest nest count for Sanibels east end was 69, established in 2012. The nesting records for Sanibels west end were 306 nests (established in 1998) and Captivas 179 nests (set in 2000). On July 11, Sloan and SCCF biology intern Shea Gibbs inspected nest #3 located just behind the center building of the Gulfside Place condominiums where evidence of a hatching was abundant. A crater where the young loggerheads had emerged from was conspicuously surrounded by tiny flipper marks. This is a beautiful emergence, said Sloan, who estimated the sea turtles had exited the nest only a few hours earlier. You can clearly see the little tracks that theyve made, and the crater is well defined. Sloan and Gibbs marked the hatched nest with a ring of seashells, indicating that it had hatched. Typically, hatchlings continued on page 44 A tiny loggerhead enters the gulf waters for the first time photos by Jeff Lysiak Sea turtle program permittee Tom Krekel finds a live loggerhead in nest #3 on Sanibels east end on Monday morning, one of two hatchlings recovered and released

3 ISLAND SUN JULY 18, 2014Illicit Discharge Brochure Provides Vital Informationby Jeff LysiakA newly-produced brochure that will assist island residents in identifying and reporting illicit discharge on Sanibel is currently available on the citys website at www.mysanibel. com, at the Sanibel and Captiva Islands Chamber of Commerce as well as at city hall. The two-sided brochure, with information compiled, assembled and produced by mayors office intern Kenny DiBiase, is a homeowners guide to: Recognizing Illicit Discharges Sanitary Sewage Pollution Stormwater Pollution Residential Conservation Reporting Illicit Discharges According to DiBiase, the idea behind creating the informational brochure came from City Manager Judie Zimomra, who picked up a similar handout while visiting a city in Lake County, Ohio. Shortly after he began his internship this spring, DiBiase was charged with producing a comparable leaflet that the residents of Sanibel could use. Many people dont know what an illicit discharge is or why its important to not dump into storm drains, said DiBiase, a recent graduate of Cypress Lake High School and Florida Gulf Coast Universitys Accelerated College Experience (ACE) program. An illicit discharge is any disposal, emptying or dumping of any substance other than rainfall into the stormwater drainage system. Pollutants entering Sanibels stormwater system do not flow to the water treatment plant; they empty into local canals, wetlands, estuaries, bays and gulf waters. Chemicals and nutrients become stormwater pollution as they are soaked up by the passing water, the brochure states. The stormwater pollution is harmful and can lead to algae blooms, resulting in hypoxia and other impacts to fish and wildlife. Water quality is important to improve and sustain the wonderful waters of Sanibel for future generations to enjoy. Keeping this ecosystem and fishery healthy is critical to protecting the quality of life of the islands residents and wildlife, as well as our local economy. Under the guidance of project supervisor Crystal Mansell, DiBiase gathered information vital to the brochure including how to properly dispose of cooking waste and pharmaceuticals, along with sources of stormwater pollution then met with members of the citys Natural Resources Department (James Evans and Holly Millbrandt) and Public Works Department (Keith Williams and Sandy Larson) to fact-check the data collected. Its important that people realize what the difference is between the stormwater system and the sewer system, and how to properly dispose of everyday items, said DiBiase, who met with each department at least three times in addition to Mansell and Zimomra prior to the brochure being printed. When non-sewer objects such as diapers, clothing and other non-degradable objects are improperly disposed of in the sewer system, blockages and damage to pumps can cause backups and overflow that can flood homes and surrounding environment, the brochure states. This type of cleanup can be very costly. Among the items noted in the brochure are where to drop-off expired prescriptions, over-the-counter medications and needles; the dos and donts of disposing of cooking oils and grease; continued on page 4 City of Sanibel intern Kenny DiBiase, left, discusses the illicit discharge brochure he worked on with Public Works Department Director Keith Williams photo by Jeff Lysiak

In 2012, DiBiase began an Eagle Scout Leadership Project which included strategically-placed Protect Our Waters signs positioned around the city, delivering educational speeches at city hall and at several club/group gatherings, along with distributing brochures focused on water quality issues. He noted several items, including septic system discharges, fertilizers, pet and yard waste, red drift algae along local beaches as well as other pollution/hazardous materials. The illicit discharge brochure is an easy-to-read, quick reference guide that all islanders will be able to use. Knowing how to properly dispose of these everyday items is one of the key elements to keeping our sanctuary island clean, added DiBiase. Voted Best Join a Growing List of SupportersELECT MR.

5 ISLAND SUN JULY 18, 2014 Childrens Education Center Food DriveIn response to FISHs article about local food pantrys that are struggling to meet the summer demand, the Childrens Education Center of the Islands immediately saw this as an opportunity to teach their students about helping others. For two weeks, the Childrens Education Center is hosting a food drive during their themed weeks of Lets Go Camping and All Those Animals. During the Lets Go Camping week, lots of baked beans and vegetables were collected. During the All Those Animals week, more vegetables and pasta were encouraged to be donated. Both weeks, families were encouraged to donate one of the buy one-get one sales from local food stores. Donations from the community can be brought either to the preschool at 350 Casa Ybel Road or directly to FISH at 1630 Periwinkle Way. Council Extends Dark Sky OrdinanceOn June 17, the Sanibel City Council unanimously adopted Ordinance 14-004, amending the citys laws regulating outdoor lighting. Over the past several months, in response to concerns raised by residents and property owners, the city council reviewed the level of compliance and the provisions of the citys outdoor lighting requirements, commonly known as the Dark Sky Ordinance. The original Dark Sky Ordinance was initially adopted June 6, 2000, with a compliance deadline of January 1, 2015. All members of council reiterated their commitment to the principles of the citys Dark Sky Ordinance while recognizing the need to extend the date for compliance. The new compliance date is January 1, 2018. During the interim, the city is evaluating if any provisions of the ordinance should be updated based upon changes in technology, specifically solar lighting options. Additionally, the city is evaluating options for meeting security and safety lighting needs of Sanibels residents, particularly the senior population. This amendment does not impact the City of Sanibels current marine turtle lighting codes. All of those codes remain in effect. City council has designated Vice Mayor Doug Congress as the council liaison addressing this matter.

ISLAND SUN JULY 18, 20146 Historical Village Hosts School, Museum GroupsTwo special groups came to the Sanibel Historical Museum & Village last week: BIG ARTS summer photography class for teens, and the staff from the Edison and Ford Winter Estates. Seven young photographers, led by their instructor Dave Meardon, went on a type of scavenger hunt. They had to find items throughout the village and photograph them to win. The class emphasizes photo journalism, and they were on hand to record the Fourth of July parade. These summer classes are held every two weeks, and the museum expects to see more students at the end of July. Thirteen staff members and volunteers from the Edison and Ford Winter Estates went on a tour conducted by museum volunteer Hal Theiss. The tour was organized by Sanibel and Captiva Chamber of Commerce staff members Candy Thompson and Trent Peake. We are working to interact with other museums and nonprofits so we can knowledgeably cross-promote, said Sanibel Historical Village manager Emilie Alfino. Staff at the Edison museum tell us they often refer their visitors to the village. An actual visit like this one increases their knowledge, interest and enthusiasm for the village and encourages them to refer their guests to us. We expect to arrange the same opportunity for our volunteers. The historical village is open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays. The museum closes for the off-season after August 2 and re-opens November 5. The village is located at 950 Dunlop Road (next to BIG ARTS). Admission is $10 for adults 18 and older; those under 18 and members are free. There is handicap access to all buildings. Admission for entrance to the Gift Shop only is free.

9 ISLAND SUN JULY 18, 2014Beach Party At BIG ARTS Summer CampBIG ARTS Summer Arts Camp features a different creative theme each week for children of preschool age through high school. Every week the campers get to showcase their art on the wall at Gainer Veranda and perform on stage in Schein Performance Hall. BIG ARTS 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. During the sixth week of BIG ARTS Summer Arts Camp, younger campers had the theme Beach Party. It was all about relaxation and island living as the kids uncovered cool things about ocean life and were immersed into a week filled with water fun. They made nautical crafts, sung and played summer tunes, and participated in a beach-themed show on Friday. Middle and high school campers learned everything from style to technique in the classic medium of art, acrylic painting, and created stunning original works of art. The theme of Week 7 (July 14 to 18) for ages 4 and 5 and grades 1 through 5 will be Superheroes Unite. Campers will be getting in touch with their inner superheroes as they design their own super hero 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. The following week, the younger campers will have the theme Mission Is-Possible With Art, and the older campers will discover more about the art of filmmaking in Film Production II. BIG ARTS Summer Arts Camp and BIG ARTS Fine Arts Apprentice Program allows middle school and high school students to participate class sessions held from 9 to 11:30 a.m., or from 12:30 to 3 p.m. BIG ARTS Fine Arts Apprentice participants will be assigned volunteer service hours based on experience and on a first come, first serve basis. Camp begins promptly at 9 a.m. and parents should provide a non-perishable snack, lunch and drink for each day their child attends camp.

ISLAND SUN JULY 18, 201410 From page 1Prescribed Burn Planlikelihood of catastrophic wildfires and help preserve the natural ecology of the area. Very specific guidelines have to be met in order for these burns to be well planned and well executed, said Jeremy Conrad, wildlife refuge specialist. Fires are prescribed in order to reduce the amount of dried vegetation or overgrowth, known as fuel. They are planned and carefully conducted by well-trained and experienced wildland firefighters operating under strict conditions, known as prescriptions. According to Conrad, conducting prescribed burns at dedicated areas of the island where there is evidence of dead trees and overgrowth actually minimizes the threat of a catastrophic wildfire while maintaining public safety. A secondary benefit of the burn is to wildlife, which will improve the habitat of several native species. These include the gopher tortoise, the Eastern indigo snake and the Sanibel rice rat.While on the fire line, Im very cognizant of what the animals are doing, Conrad said. Theyre all pretty much adapted to fires and instinctively know what to do and where to go during a burn.Prescribed burn plans have been approved by regional fire experts from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and authorization was obtained from the state of Florida immediately prior to conducting these burns. USFWS firefighters from the Southern Florida/ Caribbean Fire District and other agency partners, including the National Park Service and Florida Forest Service, assisted with the three-day burn, as did the Sanibel Fire & Rescue District and the City of Sanibel. Paul Ryan, refuge fire management specialist, estimated that the Bailey Tract burn should take between three and four hours to complete. The remaining burns near Legion Curve and along Sanibel-Captiva Road could be finished by mid-week, if conditions were favorable. However, Ryan called the Legion Curve area a high complexity burn.Were possibly gonna light it by hand, he said last week of the site.

IANNI, MD Sanibel Island / Cornwall, Vermont Gallant Loyal Kind To AllKevin Ianni, MD succumbed to multiple myeloma with his wife of 30 years by his side on July 3, 2014. He fought like a Spartan with unsurpassed courage and remarkable strength. Born on July 29, 1959 in Rutland, Vermont, he was the son of Robert and Jeannette Ianni. Kevin graduated from Peoples Academy High School in Morrisville, Vermont in 1977. He went to the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy to complete his five-year pharmacy degree in three and a half years, graduating magna cum laude. He worked as a pharmacist while attaining his medical degree at the University of Vermont Medical School, graduating in 1984. Kevin was a pursuer of knowledge, and over the next 20 years continued his education to better himself and become a double board certified anesthesiologist. He eventually became the first anesthesiologist in charge of the department at Porter Hospital in Middlebury, Vermont, something he was immensely proud of. It was a sad day when his illness forced him to retire. Following his dream, he purchased a farm in Cornwall where he resided with his wife Barbara and only son Noah, who was he was proud to share the same birthday with. He lived there until moving to Sanibel, an island he fell in love with in his twenties. It was his dream to eventually live there and in true Kevin style, a man of action, he made it happen. He spent his last winter there in the sunshine that he loved, taking his dog Rosie out for walks on the island riding his scooter. Born a Leo, Kevin was a true leader, admired by all who knew him. He was loyal beyond words, brave to the end, kind, generous and was blessed with an amazing mane of hair which rarely went unnoticed. Kevin was a true family man always looking for the good in everything. He was a kind, gentle man, always a diplomat, with unmatched energy. He was good to all of his animal friends, whom trusted him immensely. He loved the farm and knew the land intimately, walking or cross-country skiing with his dogs and wife daily. There is great sadness and an emptiness in the place he once held here on this Earth. Kevin will be missed by all who knew him. He leaves behind the one and only love of his life, his wife of 30-plus years, Barbara Kaiser, he was the loving father of Noah Ianni, his greatest joy, parents Robert C. Sr. and Jeanette Ianni, and brother Robert C. Ianni Jr. and other extended family. He was predeceased by younger brother Edward J. Ianni. He also leaves behind a special friend Dr. Carl Petri, who helped him, taking him out on the lake to fish on his day off, entertaining him with random home repair projects and calling him every week just to say Hi. In lieu of gifts or donations, Kevin would encourage us to pay a kind deed forward to make the world a happier place and look for the good in everything.

ISLAND SUN JULY 18, 201414 Rotary Provides $8,500 To Child Care Of Southwest Florida For ScholarshipsThree Rotary Clubs have supported Child Care of Southwest Floridas efforts to provide high-quality early education to low-income children with a combined $8,500 contribution to the agencys scholarship fund. Rotary Club of Fort Myers contributed $5,000, Rotary Club of Fort Myers South donated $2,500, and Rotary Club of Sanibel-Captiva added $1,000. Once we shared research results with the Rotary Clubs, they were eager to support our efforts, said executive director and Rotarian Beth Lobdell. Studies prove that children who are deprived of high-quality early-education experiences are far more likely to drop out of school, experience teen pregnancies and run into trouble with the law. Ninety percent of the brains neurons develop by the age of 5, so kindergarten is too late to start providing an effective learning environment. Child Care of Southwest Florida provides early-education and voluntary prekindergarten programs at six accredited centers in Lee and Hendry counties. Scholarships are provided to low-income families, allowing them to maintain employment and providing their children with the continuity that fosters learning and social development. When the agency learned of unexpected funding cuts that would impact many of its families, its board of directors launched a fundraising effort to keep affected children in its centers. Low-income families dont always have access to high-quality programs, and dependable child care is critical to their employment, said board chair Karen Miller. We could not let any of our children leave for financial reasons, and were grateful to the Rotary Clubs and others who are helping us cover the shortfall. Rotary Clubs bring together dedicated individuals to exchange ideas, build relationships and take action. The clubs, with Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation, work to make lasting improvements in their communities and around the world.

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.

ISLAND SUN JULY 18, 201418 Plant SmartPeace Lilyby Gerri ReavesPeace lily (Spathiphyllum) is an evergreen perennial native to parts of Southeast Asia and Central and South America. Also called white anthurium and white sails, it is member of the aroid family, which includes arum, calla, and anthurium. The dark-green leaves contrast with the pure or greenish white spathe, which is often mistaken for the flower. That hood-like spathe is a type of bract or modified leaf that sheaths the club-like spadix, or inflorescence, on one side. On the spadix are the tiny inconspicuous flowers that look like mere bumps. The leaves are bladelike with pointed tips and can be more than a foot long. Held erect on fleshy stems, they resemble banana leaves. Deep venation gives them a textured or corrugated appearance. Peace lily grows in clumps of about five feet high and spreads via rhizomes. The flower stalks reach well above the foliage. The fruit is dry and berry-like. This plant is not a particularly low-maintenance, since regular watering, misting and fertilization are usually required. It requires strong indirect light but should be protected from full sun, and it needs moist well-drained soil rich in organic content. It is not salt tolerant, and common pests include mites, scales and mealy bugs. In fact, its perhaps best suited to be a houseplant in South Florida, for it is proven to help cleanse the air of toxins. It also makes a good potted patio plant, and the spathes make long-lasting cut-flower arrangements. Numerous cultivars exist. Both the leaves and flowers are poisonous and the sap can cause skin irritation. Sources: Florida, My Eden by Frederic B. Stresau; Florida Landscape Plants by John V. Watkins and Thomas J. Sheehan;;; and Plant Smart explores the plant life of South Florida and sustainable landscape practices.

Leal, PhD, The Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum Curator and Director of EducationThe boring turret snail (Turritella acropora Dall, 1889), is a relatively common marine snail in the Gulf of Mexico, and often found on the beaches of Sanibel and Captiva. This species is characterized by its sculpture, which includes a series of spiral lines, or cords, which are larger at the periphery of the whorl. Boring snail shells can easily be confused with auger shells, from which they differ by their rounder aperture (opening) and wider whorls. Boring snails are closely related to worm snails, which were the subject of one of my past columns in this paper, and which are also relatively common on Sanibel and Captiva; next time you find a worm snail shell, notice how the initial part of that shell looks just like a small boring turret! Learn more about the boring turret snail at http://shellmuseum. org/shells/shelldetails.cfm?id=17. This Week At The Museum Free shell crafting workshops as part of paid museum admission.

In 2002, SCCF initiated its 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. It is also a chance to explore CROWs Visitor Education Center and learn more about the efforts to save wildlife through care, education and collaboration.CROW is located at 3883 Sanibel-Captiva Road, across from The Sanibel School.

21 ISLAND SUN JULY 18, 2014 CROW Case Of The Week: Baby River Ottersby Patricia MolloyIt seems that otters just want to have fun. Spirited and frolicsome, an otter rarely misses an opportunity to run toward the waters edge, slide down a slippery, muddy slope and end with a playful splash. Or grab a friend by the neck, and begin flopping and churning together in the water. The North American river otter (Lontra canadensis) is a sleek but furry semi-aquatic mammal that lives in and around clean marshes, streams and rivers. Related to weasels and skunks, they utilize their webbed hind feet and strong tails to navigate through water with the greatest of ease. Otters are also capable of holding their breath underwater for up to eight minutes. While an otters antics may appear to us humans as strictly fun and games, the energetic behavior is an important tool for otters to learn and practice essential survival maneuvers. Over the past several months, a half-dozen or more young river otters have been admitted to CROW as orphaned or abandoned pups and currently reside in the clinics stateof-the-art otter facility. Built by volunteers with supplies donated for its construction, the otter complex is located in a quiet corner of the property to help combat imprinting. Imprinting occurs when a wild animal sees a human as its friend; it is dangerous to release an imprinted animal back into the wild. The wild nature of all patients must be maintained; a difficult task with any patient, but particularly problematic when treating a creature as exceptionally intelligent and curious as an otter. When cleaning the otter complex, staff members quietly place food in a room separated from the pool area. When the door is opened to the feeding room and the otter enters, a trap door closes, shielding the patient from the presence of the clean-up crew. Once the complex has been put back in order and the otter has finished her meal, she is rereleased into the main activity room without ever seeing her human caretakers. It is nearly time for the otters to be released. The ones still at CROW were too young at admission to have established their own territories. As a result, it is not necessary to release them on the exact site at which they were found. If anyone has private property with a lot of land and would be interested in having native birds, turtles or adorable otters released on it, call CROW at 472-3644. 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 river or pond? Is it safe from free-roaming dogs?

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 18, 201422 Summer Varietyby Capt. Matt MitchellDodging fast moving thunderstorms at just about any time of the day was all part of our fishing pattern this week. At just about any time, a fast moving thunderstorm could move through with dangerous lightning and quickly bring your day on the water to a early end. This type of weather is nothing unusual for our summer time fishing; just remember to keep one eye to the sky and the other on the weather radar on your smart phone. Action around the full moon this week was good, although some days charters took much more work than others to get it done. I had a really mixed bag of fishing charters booked this week with clients wanting to target a variety of species on lots of different tides. Early in the week, I did some shark fishing, which proved to be a little tougher than normal. Anchoring up in Rocky Channel by Pineland, we had a slow incoming tide while we soaked big chunks of cut mullet on the bottom. About 30 minutes in, we hooked into a five-footplus bull shark, which put on a great fight for the young anglers who took turns on the rod. After getting their first shark to the boat, we got some great in-water photos before cutting it loose. Anchoring up again, we camped for another hour with only a big stingray hooked before we made a move south to avoid a thunderstorm and hopefully find a better bite. My next stop was a favorite nine-foot shark hole in the middle sound, which is usually loaded up with blacktip sharks. Once we set up, I began to chum with small chunks of fresh cut mullet. It did not take long at all for us to start seeing three to four foot blacktips swimming around the boat. We did have a few pick ups, but could just not get one hooked for a little while. Watching these blacktip sharks come right up to the boat to check us out was cool, though. With about 10 minutes left to fish, we had a rod go down and it was on again. This time, a solid fourfoot blacktip made a few powerful drag screaming runs. With the kids wanting a picture with the shark, I put the shark in my big landing net before grabbing it tight for a few quick pictures before releasing it unharmed. Later in the week, I had a trip that gag grouper were our species of choice. We spent a few hours bottom dropping live baits in Captiva Pass. The bite was a little slow too, although we did manage one nice 27-inch keeper. We did catch a few shorts and loose a couple that seemed to be much bigger as they inhaled the big baits and quickly broke us off in the bottom structure. Slow moving tides are a great time to do this in the pass as you can keep the boat and baits over the good bottom structure for a longer period of time. With gag grouper season now open since July 1, we are seeing more and more inshore anglers targeting these tasty fish. One sure thing though this week was when other species where just not quite playing along with the days plan, there was always catch and release snook fishing in the passes to fall back on. Small baits where what the snook wanted in the passes this week, and along with the snook, there where also some redfish and bigger mangrove snapper in the mix. When anglers simply wanted to catch fish staying in and around the passes, right now just cannot be beat. Capt. Matt Mitchell has been fishing local waters since he moved to Sanibel in 1980. He now lives in St. James City and works as a back country fishing guide. If you have comments or questions, email ISLAND MARINE SERVICES, INC.

Team For Kids Fundraiser At The Great White Grillsubmitted by Tiffany OnischukOn July 11, owner John Nader and The Great White Grill hosted a guest bartender fundraising event for New York resident Molly Kreter, raising money for a charity called Team for Kids (TFK). Kreter is a dedicated runner and recently began volunteering with TFK to make a difference in numerous childrens lives. Every weekend, she wakes up at 5 a.m. to volunteer as a race buddy, mentor or companion. I want to make sure that these kids not only have an outlet for happiness, but a mentor to help them through hard times, she said. TFK consists of a group of adult runners from all around the world who add meaning to their running miles by raising funds for New York Road Runners Youth and Community Service programs while training for major endurance events. The funds that are raised go towards free or low-cost health and fitness programs to kids who may have little or no access to regular physical activity. Since 2002, TFK has raised over $32 million and has impacted nearly thousands of childrens lives. From 5 p.m. until close, The Great White Grill opened up its doors to the public to support this incredible cause. For each drink that Kr eter served, The Great White Grill donated $1 to TFK. More than $500 was raised at the event, and she will continue to fundraise for this charity through other means. To follow Kr eters journey or to show your support to reach her goal, visit PublicPage/13702. A big thank you to all who came out and supported Molly and her successful guest bartender event in an effort to raise money for TFK. Through my partnership with Team For Kids, I not only aim to raise money to provide support for the organization but I continue to devote my time to volunteering with the children, Kr eter added.

35 ISLAND SUN JULY 18, 2014 Romantic Juggling At Off Broadway Palmby Di SaggauIn Boeing, Boeing, now playing at Off Broadway Palm, a bachelor in Paris feels he has an enviable life with his three fiancees. Each works for a different airline with different schedules, and with the help of his careful timetable, he makes sure their paths never cross in his flat near Orly Airport. All goes well until it doesnt. Due to increased aircraft speed and flight cancellations, his best-laid plans are all soon ruined. The air hostesses start arriving early and plan on staying longer and before you know it, Bernard (John Keckeisen) finds himself in the worst dilemma of his life. All three ladies are eventually in his apartment at the same time. Thats when the fun begins and the many doors in the set get a lot of use. Gloria (Alison Rose Munn) is an American working for TWA. She has strange food tastes, including pancakes with ketchup. Gabriella (Amy Marie McCleary) is a hot blooded Italian who works for AllItallia. Gretchen (Katie Pankow) is with Lufthansa and is a German She-Wolf. All do great credit to their roles and have fun with their nationalities. Kelly Legarreta plays Berthe, the house maid with a permanent pout of perturbed domesticity, whacking the swinging door to the kitchen and delivering lines that arent jokes, but leave the audience cracking up. Sean Riley plays Robert, Bernards nerdy best friend and he does it will skillful ease. My favorite scenes were when Riley and Legarreta team up on stage together. Their reactions to being caught in a whirlwind of ever-changing romantic encounters is hilarious. Its great fun to sit back and watch all these actors throw themselves into their parts as if their lives depended on it. The nifty mod airline costumes from the s in their bright colors also work nicely. Boeing, Boeing, directed by Paul Bernier, is sheer energy and silliness that leaves you laughing. It plays through August 9 at The Off Broadway Palm Theatre, 1380 Colonial Boulevard in Fort Myers. Tickets are available at, by calling 278-4422 or by stopping at the box office.

ISLAND SUN JULY 18, 201436 Sanibel 9U AllStars Compete At Tournamentsubmitted by Chuck PhoenixThe Sanibel 9U All-Stars played their hearts out at the Cal Ripken Florida State Tournament and left with smiles despite falling to the Ormond Beach 9U All-Stars in six innings. Sanibel represented District 15 in the islands first ever appearance in a Florida sports championship tournament. Othmane Sanchez (1-4, 1 R, 2 RBI) said, We had fun today. Immediately after the game, Liam Murray (1 BB, 2 HBP, 2 R), hit by two pitches during the game, told the team and parents, We tried hard and did our best. The July 11 game went beyond 2-1/2 hours, and the nine boys played with no reserves to give them rest from the 92-degree heat. They scored in each of the first four innings before a difficult fifth inning that led to the 19-11 final score as the District 13 champion finally got to Daniel Paul (3.2 IP, 13 H, 1 BB, 7 K). Ormond Beach came out quickly with six runs in the first inning, but Sanibel opened with two runs in the bottom half. Tye Phoenix (2-3, 1 BB, 1 R, 2 RBI) reached first base on a sharp single to center and Riley Johnson (1 BB, 1 R) walked to set the table. After advancing on a Bodhi Taylor (1 BB, 1 R) groundout, Daniel Paul (3-3, 1 BB, 2 R, 2 RBI) hit a flyball single to right-center, knocking in Phoenix and Johnson. Sanibel played dramatic defense throughout the game. In the second inning, Ormond Beachs third hole hitter hit sharply to right and tried to extend a single, but right fielder Murray fielded and threw a strike to shortstop Ryan Dunavant (2 BB, 1 R) for an out at second. After a wild pitch, Phoenix recovered the ball near the fence and dove in front of the plate to block a runner bolting home for the third out. Dunavant and Colin Menzel (1-3, 1 BB, 2 R, 1 RBI) walked, Murray was hit by a pitch, and Phoenix walked, leading to three runs in the bottom of the second inning. In the third, defensive play created more excitement as Dunavant dove into the grass behind the pitcher to snag a popup. When Sanibel came to the plate, Paul, Sanchez and Menzel each hit solid singles to the outfield. Ormond Beachs pitcher pelted Murray again. With Paul and Sanchez already in, AJ Aracri (1-4) dropped a perfect bunt single in front of home plate to load the bases. Phoenix stepped to the plate, smacked a line drive single to center, and knocked Menzel and Murray in to narrow the score to 12-9. The bottom of the fourth brought everyone to the fences looking toward a Sanibel upset victory. The dugout bellowed with Phoenix repeatedly belting, Who said No? and the boys defiantly retorting at each, We say Yes! Taylor, Paul, Dunavant and Murray all stepped up to the plate and walked. Taylor and Paul both scored on some nifty base running, narrowing the game to 12-11 after four innings. Players and onlookers felt quite positively that it must be yes! The top of the fifth began with defensive drama. The leadoff hitter singled to center. The next batter popped out to Paul at the mound, who then struck out the third batter. With two out, the runner took off for second base. Phoenixs throw beat the runner by several steps, but the shortstop and second baseman entangled over the bag as Sanchez caught the ball. Sanchez managed to apply the tag, but the runner snuck through to avoid the third out and a scoreless inning. With Sanibel on the precipice of a stunning upset in the one-run ballgame, Ormond Beach caught fire with five more hits around a hit batsman to score six unanswered runs. Ormond Beach scored another run in the sixth inning before Phoenix caught a foul tip to end the inning on Pauls seventh strikeout. Paul hit his final single in Sanibels last at-bat, but couldnt score as the exciting game closed at 19-11.

The four-time NBA most valuable player, who brought two NBA championships to the Miami Heat, is going home to a special place in my heart where he hopes to bring championships to a city plagued with a sports draught second to none. We constantly read and hear about the downtrodden Chicago Cubs who havent won a World Series in 106 years and havent even been in a World Series in 69 years. But Chicagos other teams the Bears, Bulls, White Sox and Blackhawks have won championships. Cleveland, however, has never laid claim to an NBA title. In fact, the citys last NFL championship was 50 years ago in pre-Super Bowl days. And its last World Series victory was 66 years ago, in 1948. LeBron wants to change that losing stigma, and well he might. He answered his critics in South Florida with two NBA titles in his four-year stint. Of course, he had All-Stars Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade as his supporting cast. His Cleveland roster will not be that strong next season, but it is a stronger team than when he departed in 2010. He will be reunited with his favorite teammate, Anderson Varejao. Kyrie Irving is an outstanding point guard and Tristan Thompson and Dion Waiters are promising players, too. LeBron is not promising a championship immediately. I know how hard that is to deliver. Were not ready right now it will be a long process, much longer than it was in 2010. I know I am going into a situation with a young team and a new coach. But I get a thrill out of bringing a group together and helping them reach a place they didnt know they could go, he said in his announcement.continued on page 50 BEAT A NEW PATH...

On this hot day, thats exactly how it was: nine boys trying hard, doing their best and having fun in this state championship tournament as the parents who paved the way for the opportunity rose to their feet, pressed to the fences, and cheered. The 11 runs scored were the ninth most of 36 in the tournament. They were also the most runs Sanibel Babe Ruth League teams have scored in any live pitching tournament game in any division. Proving how far the program has advanced, it equaled the total runs all other Sanibel All-Star live pitching teams have scored in all tournament games in all prior seasons combined. Childrens Education Center Camping WeekThe students of the Childrens Education Center of the Islands had a blast pretending they were out in the wilderness during Camping Week. They played in tents with flashlights, made animal puppets, learned about contellations, made pretend campfires and ate real smores and hot dogs. The Childrens Education Center of the Islands is a non-profit preschool offering full-time and part-time classes for children ages 2 to 5. They offer Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) from 9 a.m. to noon Monday through Friday for free. Last years VPK Readiness Rates from The Sanibel School was 94 percent. Wrap around care for VPK students is also offered at competitive rates. The preschool is currently accepting applications for the 2014-15 school year beginning on August 18 as well as their Summer Camp, which operates themed weeks until August 1. For more information, stop by CECI, located at 350 Casa Ybel Road, or call 472-4538. CECI campers had a great time in the many tents set out for dramatic play on the playground.

ISLAND SUN JULY 18, 201438 Bank Donates To CHR And Church Bank of the Islands recently made its latest non-profit donations through its We Love Our Islands program. The winner choosing the beneficiary organizations was bank customer Robert Coscia of SanCap Gateway Realty. He was spotted with a We Love Our Islands decal on his vehicle. That won him the right to select which local non-profit group would receive a charitable contribution from Bank of the Islands. Coscias winnings were so large he decided the bank should make two gifts instead of one. He chose the Childrens Ministry at Saint Isabels Catholic Church to receive the banks $1,000 donation. Community Housing Resources (CHR) was selected to receive a $900 gift from the bank. These gifts mark a total of $58,500 contributed to island organizations to date through the We Love Our Islands program. Both these recipients do such a wonderful job of helping island families and children. We are really pleased Mr. Coscia chose them to be the banks most recent We Love Our Islands beneficiaries, said Bank of the Islands Sanibel-Captiva office manager Willy Ocasio. Speaking for my colleagues at our Sanibel and Captiva offices, I think this is such a great way to show how much we appreciate being your island bank.

Thats what Sanibel-Captiva Rotarys speaker last week wanted to know. Jim Bjostad, new Lee County Emergency Management program manager, posed that question to all of us. Although Lee County Emergency Management handles all emergency disaster responsibilities, Bjostad was primarily speaking to us about hurricane preparedness. Bjostad has a very impressive resume including a 30-year career in the coast guard, retiring as coast guard captain incident commander, in charge of disaster response during Hurricane Katrina and five years representing the Department of Defense on the Federal Geographic Data Committee. He has worked closely with the Department of Homeland Security, including FEMA, and the Department of the Interior to improve and enhance DODs geospatial information mapping support for state and local first-responders throughout the nation following natural disasters. Taking on his new position with Lee County, Bjostad has the type of experience that will no doubt serve our community well and, on top of that, he now lives on Sanibel. That alone both surprises me and impresses me because of Sanibels low land elevations. Sanibel is considered a special flood hazard area by FEMA. That being said, Bjostad knows that he has the responsibility for his family to be prepared in case of a hurricane. Facts is, Sanibel is in a floodplain. Bjostad emphasized the point that because of where we live, we should all have a hurricane evacuation plan. Get a Lee County Hurricane Preparation Guide and pick up a Sanibel Flood Facts booklet. Know what flood zone area you are in. The earlier in the alphabet your flood zone occurs, the more vulnerable your area is to flooding. Sanibel and Captiva Zone A. Where are you going when you evacuate, what should you do before you evacuate, and what should you take with you when you evacuate? Bjostad said, Every hurricane is different and you have to be prepared for both wind and water surges from these storms. Hurricane Charley was mostly a windstorm and fast moving. Luckily for Sanibel, the storm surge forecast did not materialize. Hurricane Katrina caused severe destruction along the gulf coast from central Florida to Texas, much of it due to the storm surge. The flooding of New Orleans was actually caused by the failure of the levee system due to rainfall. Bjostad brought a series of slides of coastland Mississippi after Katrina, slides that showed moonscape looking landscapes with only tall piling posts standing. Buildings were completely destroyed. Bjostad believes that evacuation of lowlying flood zone areas should be heeded; this is absolutely for safety reasons. Check and review the hurricane and flood plan booklets, have your plan ready, review your insurance policies, prepare your property, and, in the event of a hurricane, take your island emergency passes and leave the island.

ISLAND SUN JULY 18, 201440 Superior InteriorsIdeas For Sprucing Up Your Home by Jeanie TinchI know. Youre tired of looking at that same furniture arrangement. Or perhaps the wallcovering in the guest bathroom has seen better days. Maybe now is the very best time to give your space a fresh new lift. Here are a few decorating ideas that I think you should consider: Liven Up A Dull Floor Plan Try rearranging what you already own. Sometimes, moving furniture around a room or transferring pieces from one room to another makes a huge difference! Find Some New Angles For your furniture, of course. Try moving your furniture into more interesting positions. Rather than the traditional line of furniture around the walls, but some corners with sofas and armoires. Youll love the difference an angle can make! Light Up Your World If your room seems drab and dull, perhaps your lighting could use a face lift. Consider replacing an old shade, or installing new wall fixtures. Perhaps adding some new lamps will brighten up your world. What Do You Really Like? If unsure, then I suggest you review design books and home decorating magazines. When you find a photograph of a room that you really like, spend some time analyzing what it is that you truly like. Start A Redecorating Notebook Save pictures of your favorite rooms and favorite things. Make some notes as you study these photos. As yourself why do you like this room? What would you change? How do the fabrics, colors and textures make you feel? By including the answers to these questions in your notebook, youll not only save yourself a lot of valuable time, but your design professional will be thrilled with the thought youve given to your upcoming project. Set A Realistic Project Budget And Completion Timetable If you have a special upcoming event thats inspired you to redecorate, then its important that the entire process start in enough time to meet your deadline. And I know that money is often a challenging topic. But knowing your budget really helps your design professional help you. Identify Your Focal Point Is it a fireplace, a beautiful view, a bed or an armoire? Your room arrangement should surround your focal point. Pulling furniture into attractive groups in the center of the room will not only add warmth to your room, but will be inviting to guests as well. Whats Your Theme? Selecting a theme for your room says something about you and your family. It also provides you with a way to display collections, themed items, or arts and crafts. Once your theme has been selected, youll be surprised how your choices and shopping decisions will be simplified. Wake Up Your Room With Color For instant impact, nothing beats adding color to a room. To find the right color for you, find something you adore in a color that makes you happy. Once your color decision is made, fabrics, upholstery artwork and accessory selections will be a snap. So, start off with a new fresh look. Everyone deserves to be able to say, No matter what kind of day Ive had, when I come home I feel happy and uplifted! Jeanie Tinch is an interior designer on Sanibel/Captiva Islands. She can be reached at Insurance Tip Is Saving Money On Insurance The Wisest Decisionby Angela Larson RoehlWith the continual increases in insurance premiums, we all are looking for ways to save on our insurance. But sometimes, saving a little does more harm than good. Are you removing valuable endorsements on your policy to save a few dollars? While some coverages can be removed without losing the integrity of your coverage, there are some endorsements that should not be removed, like the Special Form endorsement. When you remove the Special Form coverage from your policy and take a Basic or Broad Form coverage you are limiting the coverage of your policy to only cover what is listed as being covered, i.e. fire, lightning, windstorm or hail, explosion, smoke, vandalism, aircraft or vehicle collision, etc. Whereas the Special Form coverage does not list what all is covered as all perils are covered except what is excluded. So an unlisted peril of loss is covered under the Special Form policy unless its excluded, i.e. flood (covered by a separate policy), war, nuclear hazard, neglect, etc. Other valuable endorsements to have are the following: Water Backup In case your sewers or drains backup into your home Ordinance or Law You want to have this in case a of a partial or total loss so that it provides coverage for the expense in having your home meet new ordinance or laws that may not have been in place when your home was originally built. There are many other endorsements that your policy may or may not have, so I would advise you to contact a licensed insurance agent to go over your particular insurance needs to determine what coverages you need to have and what you may be able to remove to save money.

41 ISLAND SUN JULY 18, 2014School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My senior high school daughter was diagnosed with ADHD but has been able to do well and wants to go to college. I have several questions about this process and applying for college. What should we be looking for in a college? What questions should we be asking? And what should be revealed on the application? Katie M., Cape Coral Katie, These are important questions. It is good that you and your daughter are thinking about them now. It will also be important to think about her strengths and weaknesses when choosing and applying to colleges. Its very important to choose a learning environment that will work to her strengths. Questions she should consider asking include: Do I want the excitement of the city or the peacefulness of a rural environment? Do I work best by myself or do I need peers for study support? Do I learn more in small discussion classes or lecture courses? Then as she learns more about the schools, she can find out about typical class size, opportunities for small study groups and other learning settings that she may need. If your daughter makes any college visits, there are several things she can do to should make sure she is getting a good sense of the school. It would be good for her to observe some classes she is interested in, and some professors she would be working with. Are there people on campus she can see herself being friends with? She should aim for a college that feels comfortable to her a place where her needs can be met and where she will learn to take care of herself as well. Your daughters diagnosis shouldnt reduce her chances of getting into college. Her application should speak for her and highlight her skills and experiences. Theres no reason she needs to talk about her ADHD in applying unless its part of an essay she wants to write. Once your daughter is admitted and has chosen a college, you need to ask about accommodations. Every institute of higher learning is required to offer accommodations to their students. Meet with the Disability Concerns Office at the college. Make sure you have updated evaluation documents for your daughters specific accommodations to help with this process. As a senior in high school, your daughter should practice her advocacy skills so that she is ready to talk to professors and administrators about what she needs. Support is very important when going off to college as an independent learner. Knowing what she needs to succeed and being able to obtain it through her own advocacy is a life long skill that will help her not only in college but in the workplace as well. Its hard work to put all of this in place and she may need some help from you and her high school counselor to get all of this organized and submitted in a timely way. Her initial college experience will be much smoother and much more successful if her supports are organized before she gets there and she will be able to concentrate on her classes far more effectively. 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.

From page 10Prescribed Burn PlanFire is a natural part of Floridas ecosystem, historically set by lightning. Fire removes dead vegetation, promotes new growth of native vegetation and suppresses exotic plants. In the absence of fire, many plant communities are displaced by dense woody vegetation, which can reduce plant diversity and eliminate foraging opportunities for several of the islands wildlife species. Units are burned in small blocks to minimize smoke impacts. During Monday and Tuesdays prescribed burns, portions of the refuge and areas of the shared use path along Sanibel-Captiva Road were closed to pedestrian and bicycle traffic. A public information officer was available on each day of the prescribed burns, at Baileys General Store during the Bailey Tract burn on Sunday and at the Sanibel Recreation Center on the other days to answer questions and provide information.

Sheriff Speaks To Womens Clubby Di SaggauLee County Sheriff Mike Scott spoke at the July meeting of the Continental Womens Club. Scott said that his operation is two-fold, with half of their work dealing with law enforcement and the other half with the county jail. He referred to the 2,000 inmates housed there as the dumb masses they have to deal with on a day-to-day basis. He said, We feed em, fix em and move em. That includes medical treatment and transportation when needed. Scott said one of the biggest problems facing our area is drugs. Its a huge issue and the direct cause of many crimes. He said that considering the kind of growth experienced in Lee County, the crime rate is not alarming. Overall, this is a safe place to live. He also touched upon some safety tips and reminded everyone that in the event of any crime, we are the first responders and should always call 911.

43 ISLAND SUN JULY 18, 2014 Like many professional offices, ours has gone electronic and mostly paperless at least as much as an attorneys office can actually go paperless. So from time to time, a client will ask me whether and how we back-up our data and systems. Thankfully, I can assure my clients that we have up-to-date, sophisticated off-site back-up systems. But then I ask them the same question. How do you back-up your data? Im not asking, by the way, whether they have their computer data backed-up. Instead, my inquiry is directed at whats inside of their noggin. By that Im referring to the wealth of information that the client may have in their head, but that no one else knows possibly not even their spouse. What kind of data, you ask? Think about all of the day-to-day decisions that you make regarding your legal, tax and financial matters. What is your investment strategy? Where are the accounts? Which account is used to pay what bills? Are electronic banking accounts used? What are the usernames and passwords? When you need to pay big-ticket items such as real estate taxes or for major repairs, what money do you tap? When do you typically take your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) from your IRA every year? Is it at the end of the year? Who calculates it? If there are multiple IRA and 401(k) accounts, is the RMD taken proportionately, or do you typically tap one of the accounts and leave the others intact? Are there any financial dealings between you and your adult children? Are those arrangements written down? Where are they kept? Do they involve ledgers? Are those ledgers up to date? Who keeps them up to date? Are there annual gifts being made for health or education? Are those expected to continue? Are there life insurance premiums due? Are those premiums paid to a life insurance trust that requires Crummey notices that must be sent to the trust beneficiaries? Who is responsible for that? The list goes on and on. Because handling the finances of the house is so second nature to some, and because they have been doing so their entire adult lives, they dont think that any of this is extraordinary. They dont appreciate that someone coming in with no understanding of what they have done over the course of many years would have a difficult learning curve to understand what has transpired in the past, and what has to happen in the near term to keep things running smoothly. And in most cases, there is no backup. All of this information is stored in the noggin but if that noggin should have a traumatic event like a stroke, or worse, death, all of the loved ones who are affected by these daily decisions somehow have to reconstruct the data. Believe me, it aint easy. So if any of this sounds familiar, what should you do? The first thing, of course, is to write down as much of the information and keep it in a safe place. Secondly, instruct those around you about the most important legal, tax and financial matters you deal with on a daily, monthly or yearly basis. Then, have your loved one participate with you in carrying out some of these tasks. That way, should your loved one be confronted with having to pick things up should you be unable to act, it all wont seem so foreign. In other words, do your best to backup the data that sits between your ears. Then be sure to perform periodic backups, since the data tends to change over the course of the months and years. Craig R.

ISLAND SUN JULY 18, 201444 From page 1Record Sea Turtle Nestingemerge between 45 and 70 days after the eggs have been laid. On July 14, Krekel arrived just before 8 a.m. to dig the nest, giving any stragglers a fighting chance for survival. They have to burrow their way through compacted, wet sand in order to get out, said Krekel, a sea turtle program volunteer for 13 years. Once they get towards the top, the sand falls down behind them, so its easier for the others to get out. Digging nearly two and a half feet down into the nest, Krekel carefully pulls out both broken and unbroken egg shells. Along the way, he finds two loggerhead hatchlings, still fighting their way out of the sand. This ones in pretty good shape he was pretty far down, he said. Hes moving pretty good, though hell have a good chance of surviving. Krekel walked towards the water, surrounded by a few curious onlookers. Placing the sea turtle only a few feet from the gulf, he watches intently to make sure the loggerhead goes in the right direction towards the light on the horizon. Of course, it does. Once they get into the water, theyll swim for 48 hours straight, he tells a passerby. They do that to get away from the shoreline and birds and other predators thats their instinct. Each day during nesting season, which runs from May to October, more than 100 volunteers, permittees and SCCF employees monitor approximately 18 miles of island beachfront, which stretches from the Sanibel Lighthouse to the tip of Captiva. Sea turtle nests are identified and marked for both monitoring and protection. As nesting season progresses, new hatches are evaluated and that data is recorded. The statewide collection of data helps promote programs that improve the chances for sea turtles to survive. Loggerheads are a threatened species, mostly because of humans, so being able to help them by doing this is a pretty direct way of giving nature a helping hand, added Krekel. Sea turtle program coordinator Kelly Sloan inspects a nest that had hatched earlier last Friday morning on Sanibels east end Evidence of the sea turtle hatchlings can be seen surrounding the crater from which they emerged, which was marked by encircling shells around the nest The sea turtle hatchling crawling towards the water Tom Krekel and two beachgoers keep a watchful eye on a loggerhead hatchling as it makes its way towards the water Tom Krekel holds one of the newborn loggerheads before release photos by Sarah Crooks Shea Gibbs and Kelly Sloan marking the nest with shells The first young loggerhead found in the nest The second young loggerhead found in the nest Tom Krekel counting the egg shells Kelly Sloan, left, and SCCF biology intern Shea Gibbs erase sea turtle tracks where an abandoned egg chamber was discovered on July 11 photos by Jeff Lysiak

ISLAND SUN JULY 18, 201446 deaRPharmacistCancer And Your QR Pathway by Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: I read one of your previous articles about breast cancer and you talked about a pathway in the body that could be activated, and how certain natural supplements can help. Can you tell us which supplements? HB, Bellevue, Washington Learning about the Quinone reductase pathway can help anyone, not just those worried about cancer. Its your bodys last chance to turn bad estrogens into good ones, thus reducing risk of cancer, especially those of the reproductive tract. Men and women need to pay attention today. I know what you are thinking, What the heck is quinone reductase and how will I get my doctor to agree to this? Well, let me start with the first part of that question. Quinone reductase is abbreviated in the medical community Nqo1. Lets just call it QR for simplicity. QR is just an enzyme that gives your body one last chance to turn bad estrogens into good ones. Basically, by activating QR, you give your body another opportunity to safely process (methylate) the bad estrogens and get rid of them from the body. If you learn this, you will outsmart your own doctor with this whole QR thing. I promise you, it is critical in terms of detoxifying your cells and helping to protect your cells, which lowers cancer risk. Youll be stunned at how easy it is. Here are a handful of the most powerful nutrients that are known to activate QR, and therefore, allow you another opportunity to reduce your risk for cancer. Please ask your doctor if these are right for you. EGCG: Its one of the active ingredients in green tea. You can drink green tea or supplement. Resveratrol: Its a grape extract most famous for its role in heart disease. You want the trans resveratrol, not the cis. Resveratrol also lowers blood sugar which is considered beneficial, but it can catch you off guard and cause hypoglycemia. Gamma Tocotrienol: Its part of vitamin E, when you buy mixed, natural vitamin E, you will be getting some of these healthy tocotrienols, but if you buy basic vitamin E (alpha tocopherol) you will not get this. Quercetin: Found in apples and red onions, this is a citrus bioflavonoid that is a powerful antioxidant and natural antihistamine. You can supplement, too. Glutathione: You can take glutathione on its own but its sort of bulky and doesnt penetrate your cells unless you buy liposomal forms, or a special one called S-acetylglutathione made by Xymogen. Alpha or R Lipoic Acid: This antioxidant penetrates all organs of your body and is commonly used by naturopaths to protect nerves and improve neuropathy. Not only does it activate the QR pathway, but it improves blood sugar levels, too. Sulforaphane: This is the name of sulfur-containing compounds most often found in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts. The highest content of sulforaphanes is found in broccoli sprouts. Eat them as often as possible, and consider supplementation.

Dear Mom & Me, My elderly aunt and uncle always lived very frugally. They only had very simple pleasures and saved their money responsibly. They said they never wanted to go into any type of retirement complex, but they were forced to go when my uncle broke his two hips. They had to sell their house and leave reluctantly. A year has passed and they are thrilled with their decorator-appointed accommodations, gourmet food, in-house entertainment and living in a luxury apartment that they never knew existed. They have made new friends and have been able to keep in touch with their old friends. Life for them is wonderful; just thought I would pass it along. Kate Dear Kate, We hear so many complaints that it is nice to hear a very good story. So many people after years of working so hard never get the opportunity to enjoy the pleasures that having money can bring. I hope your aunt and uncle are blessed with health so they can continue enjoying their new lifestyle. Lizzie Dear Kate, It is nice to hear that people are happy and enjoying their retirement years. The economy is so unsettled and so many people are truly suffering, the odd pleasant story really gives me encouragement that things will get better if we get another path to recovery.

47 ISLAND SUN JULY 18, 2014 Sanibel-Captiva Art League Art League ExhibitMembers of Sanibel-Captiva Art League are currently showing 50 landscapes, still life, local points of interest and nature scenes with birds and other animals at Sanibel Public Library in their annual all-member exhibit. Throughout the year, many art league members participate in workshops to learn new techniques and refine their skills. Several members teach painting and drawing locally to both adults and children who are at all levels of achievement. Some of the members joined the art league as beginners because of the encouragement offered by the more professional and awardwinning painters. Art league members participate in the annual auction to benefit the non-profit Friends In Service Here (FISH), neighbors helping neighbors. Baileys General Store provides reusable grocery bags that each artist uses as a canvas to paint a variety of subjects and local scenes. The bags are displayed in March and the silent auction proceeds are donated to the FISH food pantry. The current art show contains artwork by talented artists of all experience continued on page 50 Peggy Lovett Marcy Calkins Pat Smart Pauline Healey Carol Good Pat Rochester Bonnie Begraft Jean Eaton Gloria Krekel Jaye Boswell


PROFESSIONAL DIRECTORY ISLAND SUN JULY 18, 201448 My Stars FOR WEEK OF JULY 21, 2014ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Is someone at work resisting that Aries charm? Hard to believe. But seriously, Lamb, you might want to back up your ideas with some solid data, and then watch the yeas pile on. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your hard work could pay off in ways you didnt expect, but certainly deserve. Tend to that pesky health problem now so youll be in top shape to tackle the new projects coming up. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Planning a family event can be stressful unless you make it clear from the start that youre in charge. You might accept suggestions, but it will be your decisions that count. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You still have a way to go to bring that professional matter to a satisfactory conclusion. Meanwhile, an important personal situation could require more of your attention by weeks end. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Theres something about you Fine Felines that makes people want to tell you secrets. But once again, be wary of who is doing the telling. You might not want to be that persons confidante. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Creating a fuss about a family matter might get everyones attention. But it might be better to talk one-on-one with family members in order to spare a loved one unnecessary embarrassment. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Youre making progress on that career move, albeit not as quickly as you had hoped. But stay with it. Your personal life takes an unexpected (but very welcome) new turn.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A family members health problem might once again require you to shift some of your current priorities around. But this time, make certain other relatives will be there to help. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Catching up on tasks youve left undone will take a while to accomplish.

But take a moment to come up for air, then handle things one at a time, and youll soon get through them all. BORN THIS WEEK: Although you love being home with your family, you also enjoy traveling and making new friends. On July 23, 1888, Raymond Chandler, creator of detective Philip Marlowe, is born in Chicago. During the Depression, Chandler turned to writing to support himself. He published his novel The Big Sleep in 1939, followed by Farewell My Lovely and The Long Goodbye. On July 25, 1917, in Paris, exotic dancer Mata Hari is sentenced to death by a French court for spying on Germanys behalf during World War I. Since 1903, Margueretha Gertruida Zelle had performed in Paris as a dancer under the name Mata Hari, claiming she was an Indian priestess. On July 21, 1925, John T. Scopes is convicted of violating Tennessees law against teaching evolution in public schools. The case was only for show, and the jury only conferred for a few moments. The American Civil Liberties Union had advertised for a teacher who would let himself be arrested to challenge the law and open it for public debate. On July 22, 1933, American aviator Wiley Post returns to New York, becoming the first aviator to fly solo around the world. Post flew a Lockheed Vega monoplane, nicknamed the Winnie Mae. On July 26, 1941, President Franklin Roosevelt seizes all Japanese assets in the United States in retaliation for the Japanese occupation of French Indo-China. Britain and the Dutch East Indies followed suit. The result: Japan lost access to three-fourths of its overseas trade and 88 percent of its imported oil. On July 24, 1959, during the grand opening ceremony of the American National Exhibition in Moscow, Vice President Richard Nixon and Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev engage in a heated debate in the middle of a model kitchen set up for the fair. The kitchen debate became one of the most famous episodes of the Cold War. On July 27, 1974, the House Judiciary Committee recommends that Americas 37th president, Richard M. Nixon, be impeached and removed from office. The impeachment proceedings resulted from a series of political scandals known as Watergate. On Aug. 8, Nixon announced his resignation. It was English poet Martin Farquhar Tupper who made the following sage observation: Well-timed silence hath more eloquence than speech. If youre in the neighborhood of Bessemer, Alabama, you might want to stop in its Hall of History. Though the connection to local history isnt clear, Hitlers typewriter is on display to curious onlookers. You may be among those people who think good deeds and selfless acts are on the decline. If so, consider this story: In 2010, an employee at a recycling company came across 23 U.S. savings bonds while sorting through a bin of discarded papers. Instead of trying to cash the $22,000 worth of bonds himself, Mike Rodgers decided to track down the owner. It turned out that the woman who had bought the bonds, Martha Dobbins, had been dead for almost two decades. Rodgers didnt give up, though; he began a search for Robert Roberts, who was also named on the bonds. Though the name is common and Rodgers hit many dead ends, he eventually located the correct Robert Roberts, the son of Martha Dobbins. Roberts hadnt even been aware of the bonds existence. Rodgers, his good deed finally being done, refused a reward. The next time you look out the window and see banks of freshly fallen snow, remember that only about 8 percent of that fluffy whiteness is actually water; the remaining 92 percent is air. During the course of filming all eight Harry Potter movies, actor Daniel Radcliffe went through 160 pairs of glasses and 70 magic wands. Among those whom I like or admire, I can find no common denominator, but among those whom I love, I can: All of them make me laugh. -W.H.

But perhaps even more importantly, he left South Beach because he considers Cleveland and nearby Akron his true home. In his beautifully-written statement announcing his decision to return to Cleveland, he said, I feel my calling here goes above basketball. I have a responsibility to lead, in more ways than one I want kids in Northeast Ohio, like the hundreds of Akron third-graders I sponsor through my foundation, to realize that theres no better place to grow up. Maybe some of them will come home after college and start a family or open a business. Our community, which has struggled so much, needs all the talent it can get. In professional sports, its a rarity when money isnt the reason for a player jumping from one team to another. Miami wanted LeBron to remain with the Heat. And they were ready to pay. But he wanted to return home to make a difference not only on the basketball court but on the streets of Cleveland and Akron as well. And we applaud him for that although tears will continue to flow in South Beach for the near future.

For more information contact (239) 472-2644, ext. 221 or 7/18 NC 7/18 Landing a big sh from the beach can be hard on the sh. Dragging a sh up onto the sand if youre going to release it is not an option as it usually damages or kills the sh. Hold the sh in the water while you unhook it if youre going to release it. The less you can touch a sh before release the better for the sh. If you want a picture with the sh, support it as you lift it out of the water and do it quickly. Before releasing, revive the sh while holding it in the water; moving it slowly back and forth so water goes over its gills. The sh will let you know when its ready to swim off. Florida just recently changed the regulations on shing from shore. Florida residents as well as out of state visitors need a shing license to sh from shore. Shore Fishing:Don't Harm The Fishby Capt.

Im an 11-month-old neutered male brown hound mix. I make a Goofy first impression, but when youve gotten to know me, you will realize Im far from your average dog. The volunteers here think Im a mind-reader. Im constantly trying to outwit them and when I do, we all laugh. Ive got a penetrating gaze that poses the question, Whats Goofy thinking?
