They completed reading assignments, earning points. Children received books based on the points they earned. The great thing about the program is that participants earned not only a book for their personal collection, but also a book to donate to the Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida. On Tuesday, July 29, the library held its final program for the summer. Children of all ages were in attendance. Youth librarian Barb Dunkle introduced a special guest, Shane Rafferty, child life specialist from the Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida. Rafferty spoke to the audience about the hospital and about how the donated books are very much appreciated by the children. Last year, the Reading for Others program provided 1,301 books to the childrens hospital. Children have a few more days to complete their reading and turn in their books to Dunkle, who will then prepare the books for donation.continued on page 17 SCCF Named Conservation Organization Of The YearSCCF was presented the Conservation Organization of the Year award by the Florida Wildlife Federation (FWF) at the 77th annual conservation awards banquet in June at the Naples Hilton. SCCF was selected to receive this award because of its outstanding accomplishments on water quality, land use policy, sea turtle monitoring, and conservation education, among other important issues.SCCF Executive Director Erick Lindblad, on accepting the award, paid tribute to those who founded SCCF in 1967 and to all who have worked since then to forward its mission to preserve coastal habitats and aquatic resources on Sanibel and Captiva and in the surrounding watershed.

Specifically, Ordinance 13-009 stipulates that parking, stopping or standing on a road or within road right-of-way for passengers to enter or exit the vehicle is prohibited. No person shall park, stop or stand a bus, van or other motor vehicle on any public street or road or within any public street or road right-of-way for the purpose of allowing or permitting passengers on such bus, van or other motor vehicle to enter or exit such vehicle, the ordinance reads, in part. Without limitation, this prohibition extends to any individually owned or leased bus, van or other motor vehicle, any chartered bus, van or other motor vehicle, and any tour bus, van or other motor vehicle. It does not apply to a school bus.continued on page 8 Council Proposes Fee Hikes For Rec Center, Beach Parkingby Jeff LysiakWith the next city budget under review, and the first public hearing looming in less than a month, Sanibels city council made a pair of recommendations to address financial concerns, proposing an across-the-board rate increase for the Sanibel Recreation Center and a per hour fee hike for beach parking. On Tuesday, council introduced an ordinance that will amend the fee schedule for general parking permits as well as in beach parking lots including Gulfside City Park, Bowmans Beach and Lighthouse Park from the current $2 per hour to $3 per hour. The fees set forth in this section for general parking permits shall apply from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., continued on page 8

Captiva Community Panel To MeetOn Captiva, we need occupants including renters of beachfront and beach-visible homes to turn off lights and close curtains and blinds after dark. There have been an unusually high number of sea turtle hatchling disorientations on both islands this season, with nine on Captiva so far. As SCCFs Sea Turtle Coordinator points out, One of the main issues on Captiva is that the beach is several feet higher in elevation than it was in previous years due to the renourishment, so lights that havent caused problems in the past are now more visible to the hatchlings. When hatchlings emerge from the nest, they head toward the lightest horizon. Under natural circumstances, this is the water. However, unshielded interior lighting even from just a single beachfront condominium, resort unit or residence is enough to disrupt the normal sea-finding behavior of sea turtle hatchlings. Hatchling turtles are guided to the ocean by an instinct to travel away from the dark silhouettes of the dune vegetation and toward the brightest horizon light from the sky reflecting off the ocean. Artificial lights near the beach can deter females from nesting and disorient hatchling sea turtles. Most hatchlings that wander inland will die of exhaustion, dehydration or predation. If you find lost hatchlings, call SCCF at 472-2329. A licensed volunteer will pick up the turtles. While waiting, place them in a dry container with a little moist sand in the bottom and hold them in a shaded area. If you see a stranded turtle, check to see if there are orange marks painted on its shell. If so, this stranding has already been reported to the SCCF sea turtle program. If this is a new stranding, call Sea Turtle Coordinator Kelly Sloan at 472-2329. Captiva Community Panel To Meet The Captiva Community Panel will hold its regular monthly meeting on Tuesday, August 12 beginning at 9 a.m. in the Cone Rooms in Chadwicks Square at South Seas Island Resort.

5 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 8, 2014 Historical Village Closes Until NovemberThe Sanibel Historical Village has closed its doors on another season its 30th and will reopen in November. The village hosted between 9,000 and 10,000 visitors this season (final numbers have not yet been tallied), including many school children. Last week was particularly busy with about 80 youngsters enjoying the museum throughout the week, said museum manager Emilie Alfino. The schoolhouse seems to be the favorite with children, who cant imagine many grades in one room. Plus, they get to ring the school bell a big attraction! There will be a lot of changes when the museum opens next season. Shore Haven, the 1924 Sears Roebuck house, is in the final stages of preparation to serve as a welcome center for guests and a staging area for docents. Shore Haven offers a variety of opportunities, and I imagine we might try several scenarios as we work through any bugs we discover along the way, Alfino said. The museum hopes to add an additional part-time employee to serve as assistant to the manager. The museum is growing and taking on more projects, widening our purview, and always working to increase the professionalism of the experience we offer visitors, Alfino added. At the same time, we will strive to retain the atmosphere that has caused some of our visitors to call the village enchanting and good for the soul. There is no higher praise than that. People are welcome to walk the grounds of the village during the off-season. There is signage for all the buildings that will give visitors a picture of life in old-time Sanibel. When the village re-opens on November 5, the hours will be 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with docent-led tours at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults 18 and over; those under 18 and members are free. There is handicap access to all buildings.

From page 1Bus Parking OrdinanceThe ordinance also provides a number of exceptions, including emergency situations, permitted special events (issued under the authority of the city) as well as government and public utility vehicles on official business. During discussion of the ordinance, the penalty structure for violators was also amended. First-time offenders will be issued a verbal warning; a second offense will generate a $100 civil penalty, plus a filing fee of $10, provided the penalty is paid within five days after issuance of the ticket. In the event the penalty is not paid after five days, the payment required shall be a civil penalty of $150, plus a filing fee of $10. A third offense will generate a civil penalty of $350, plus a filing fee of $10. Fourth or subsequent offenses will generate a civil penalty of $500, plus a filing fee of $10. The presentation of the ordinance also included a study conducted by city staff, which looked at several parking scenarios at Lighthouse Beach. In each scenario, even low capacity buses (22 passengers or less) lacked the proper clearance for a vehicle to navigate safely. Mayor Kevin Ruane said that while he supported the ordinance, he would not advocate providing a parking element for buses which would negatively impact vegetation. On Sanibel, we just dont have the room for them, added Vice Mayor Doug Congress. The proposed ordinance received support from members representing the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation, The Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum and the Committee Of The Islands. When one citizen questioned what could be done if violators were seen stopping a vehicle to let passengers on or off their vehicle, City Manager Judie Zimomra stressed that members of the public should not attempt to enforce the ordinance. She suggested calling the Sanibel Police Departments non-emergency number (472-3111), since police are required to witness the violation in order to issue a traffic summons. In other council matters, an ordinance related to establishing a policy for floating docks, floating vessel platforms and floating boat lifts, was debated. Ordinance 14-009-2 was prompted by a new Florida law which specifically exempts these types of drive-on docking systems from permitting, so long as they are within parameters dictated, and used in connection with an existing docking structure or legal mooring area that already anticipates the presence of a watercraft. The law specifically excludes from the exemption a floating dock or walkway structure that creates a new slip; these activities still require permitting procedures. Mick Denham, however, did not agree with allowing the Florida law replacing Sanibels local legislation, noting the environmentally sensitive waters and potential impacts on sea grasses, manatees, the endangered smalltooth sawfish and other marine life. My view is that we should not give up on this, just like we didnt when it came to fertilizer, said Denham. It seems to me that we should push back on this. Mayor Kevin Ruane agreed, adding that the city should contact state representatives, impress upon them Sanibels uniqueness and concerns, gather feedback and then propose or advocate for legal changes to the state law. We need to build upon our argument, said Ruane. We have to argue our points because when we go before our legislators, were always well prepared to state our case. Councilman Marty Harrity suggested passing the ordinance, which does put some prohibitions out there. Resident Karen Storjohann also asked whether it would be possible to request an exemption to the state law. Following some additional debate, the council passed the ordinance unanimously, 5 to 0. In other business: The councils three goals for fiscal year 2014-15 were announced. They include continuing the citys redevelopment work plan, sustaining and strengthening the citys financial stability, and improving water quality. A resolution granting a petition to vacate a portion of Las Tiendas Lane located within the Sanibel Estates subdivision was approved. From page 1Fee Hikeswith the exception of the Lighthouse Park facility, which fees shall apply 24 hours per day. The second reading of the ordinance and public hearing is scheduled to take place at 11:15 a.m. on Saturday, September 6. Also, the council was provided a comprehensive look at the rec centers fee schedules, broken down by membership costs (both individual and family) for residents, member-guests, on-island employees, visitors, City of Sanibel employees/ retirees and corporate. The chart also listed fees for summer camp, after school care, holiday recreation and Fun Days, along with individual activities offered at the facility. After noting that the rec center has not made an across-the-board rate increase since it opened in 2007, Recreation Department Director Andrea Miller presented the council with three proposed rate increases 5 percent, 10 percent and 15 percent. For example, an individual resident annual membership currently costs $150. If a 5 percent increase were accepted, that fee would be $157.50; a 10 percent increase would jump the fee to $165; a 15 percent increase would jump the fee to $172.50. Taking a look at the broader picture, a hike of 5 percent would increase membership revenues by $405,196.05; a 10 percent hike would increase those revenues by $424,491.10; a 15 percent hike would increase those revenues by $443,786.15. Total revenues, which have averaged continued on page 17


9 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 8, 2014 College Student Looks Back At Hurricane Charleysubmitted by Glen WebbA college student from the University of Leicester in England is investigating the impacts of Hurricane Charley to the islands, ahead of the 10-year anniversary this August. Glen Webb, an annual visitor to Sanibel, is studying how emotions and feelings can affect a persons attachment to where they live, following a significant event such as Hurricane Charley. The geography major is looking for willing residents to share their experiences of the storm and how they feel looking back a decade on. To get involved, a short online questionnaire is available at, along with more information about the project. As a thank you for each supporting participant, a donation of $5 will be made in support of a local charity, as suggested by the Island Sun. Glenn Webb Top Ten Books On The Island1.

The Dark Skies Ordinance, created in 2000 and adopted in 2006, was established to protect the natural beauty of Sanibels night skies as well as the habitat for our nocturnal and crepuscular (active at dawn and dusk) species, particularly our sea turtles during nesting season, an informational brochure states. While all beachfront properties were required to become compliant within 60 days following adoption of the law, and all new construction is required to be built in compliance, non-beachfront properties had been scheduled to become fully compliant by January 1, 2015. However, after several residents voiced their concerns about the ordinance, city staff conducted a field survey to determine the current level of compliance. According to Congress, a house-by-house survey found that the current Dark Sky compliance varied from 9 percent to 17 percent. In the same survey, the percentage of homes found dark varied from 64 percent to 67 percent. As a result, council voted on June 17 to delay the ordinances compliance date until January 1, 2018. We are currently evaluating options for meeting security and safety lighting needs, particularly in meeting the needs of our senior population, Congress stated in his PowerPoint presentation. He also noted that the city is not considering amending the Marine Turtle Lighting Codes. After reviewing materials from the International Dark-Sky Association, the South Florida Chapter of the International Dark Sky Association, the legislation of other communities with Dark Sky Legislation and community input, Congress and city staff developed a new set of recommendations. They include: All light trespass onto adjacent properties continues to be prohibited All new construction and renovations will be compliant at time of Certificate of Occupancy All pole-mounted globe lighting and all uplighting will be prohibited by January 1, 2018 Landscaping lights of 3 feet of height and less consistent with approved fixture lights are permitted All other non-conforming lights will be grandfathered The biggest thing we want is the support of this community so we can achieve compliance, said Congress, who added that the city will issue voluntary Certificate of Compliance certificates as requested by property owners. During discussion on the proposed ordinance recommendations, a number of concerns including the definition of light trespass, the grandfathering of non-compliant fixtures and lights on timers were raised by both citizens and council members. There is always going to be a degree of subjectivity, Congress said in response to councilman Jim Jennings question about whether a non-compliant light that isnt turned on would be considered in violation of the ordinance. Mick Denham made a motion to approve Congress report, and direct staff to develop an ordinance based upon his recommendations. Jennings seconded the motion, which passed unanimously.continued on page 11 A chart depicting both acceptable (compliant) light fixtures, and fixtures not recommended for use on Sanibel Illustration by Bob Crelin


11 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 8, 2014 From page 10Dark Sky Compliant Fixtures ApprovedThis community can take pride in this ordinance, added Congress, who noted that during his work on updating the Dark Skies legislation, he heard from citizens who either supported total darkness or were completely against the ordinance. Certainly, there has to be a balance here. By approving Congress report, the council has directed staff to draft an ordinance consistent with the councilapproved recommendations. The council will then review the draft ordinance, present the amended legislation before the planning commission and conduct a first reading before adoption. Thereafter, an education program will be developed and approved. So there will be a few more bites at this apple, added Mayor Kevin Ruane.

Beloved husband of Anne (nee Newhauser) for 57 years. Loving father of Greg (Joanne) Walter of Germantown, Wisconsin; Linda (Pete) Frederick of Southlake, Texas; Cathy Walter of Elm Grove, Wisconsin; Patti (John) Hein of Germantown Wisconsin. Fun-loving and proud grandfather of William and Ben Walter, Nathan and Aaron Frederick, and Lindsay and Reggie Hein. Bill is survived by siblings Joe (Genie), Fred (Sally), Tom (Pat) and Barbara, and sister-in-law and brother-in-law Peggy and John Van Voorhis. He will also be missed by many loving nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. His parents William and Marian Walter and brother-in-law Gary Reiton preceded him in death. Bill was a long-time resident of Brookfield, Wisconsin before moving to Sanibel Island, Florida 33 years ago. He and Anne bought the Harbor House Restaurant and ran it for 18 years. For the last 14 years, Anne and Bill spent half the year on Sanibel and the other half at their cottage in the woods in Door County, Wisconsin. Bill enjoyed life and the many wonderful friends he made along the way, as Bill and Anne were avid travelers, boaters and motorcyclists. And his dream of being a pilot came true. A memorial service for Bill will take place on Sanibel later this year. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Heart Association, the American Diabetes Association or The Trauma Center at Lee Memorial Hospital, Fort Myers, Florida.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 8, 201414 Lets Go Catch A Sea Monsterby Capt. Matt MitchellThe same summer time story of dodging fast moving morning showers continued this week. Most days we stayed dry but some days we did not. With no lightning in most of the storms, the rain was refreshing some days and a nice break from the heat. By later in the week, luckily things got a little more predictable weather wise. While fishing a morning low water tide pattern, options included most species but just not any consistent redfish action Catch and release snook fishing continued to be strong in all the local passes again this week. Both the end of the outgoing tide and the first part of the incoming was a good time to be in the passes. If one pass was not going on, we would move on and try the next one. These snook have been moving around in the passes alot. Some days, they want a bait from a drifting boat out from the shoreline, then other days, it was better to anchor up and fish tight against the structure. Once you located them, it was a matter of finding what size bait they were dialed in on. During the fastest moving tide, there was a small window where the bigger fish would turn on. At this time, there was not a bait in the livewell too big to get hit. Snook fishing with Bob McGuire from Fort Myers one morning this week, we got on a crazy snook bite with big snook winning most of the battles. Fishing a dock in the pass with a ripping incoming tide, there was one eddy right behind a piling that was just wide open. Basically, if you landed the cast just perfect, it was going to instantly get hit. Even expecting the bite trying to pull a hard charging snook out from the structure was just about impossible. Although we only landed a few, it made for a fun-filled morning and a reminder of why snook are such an impressive gamefish. Quality mangrove snapper for anglers looking to take home fillets were a fast and easy bite all week on the incoming tide. Use live shrimp and small shiners rigged on a small sharp hook with just enough weight to get it to the bottom. The fish camps in the northern sound were a good place to get on these fish. Take enough bait to chum these snapper up a little, as once they start to feed, they swarm like piranhas. The five fish per person daily limit has been quick and easy, with a few up to 16 inches. For clients looking for a real battle, the shark bite in the bay was the best its been all summer, with some real sea monsters. Rocky channel is one of my favorite places to hook into a drag screamer, with most of these big sharks requiring me to pitch the anchor buoy and go chase them down before they dumped all the line off a big spinning reel. The amount of life that moves through this natural deep channel is crazy, with rolling tarpon, sea turtles, manatees and dolphins to watch while you wait for the next shark bite. Twice this week, we jumped a tarpon while fishing here with a metal leader shark rig. This is simple fishing with a big chunk of fresh mullet or ladyfish rigged on a circle hook with a short piece of steel leader. The variety of sharks caught this week included bulls, blacktips, spinners and nurse sharks. Average size of these sharks is right around five feet but you will hook much bigger. If youre getting one out of three to the boat when this bite is on, your doing good. This is a great summer time fishing option with the majority of my clients really enjoying doing battle with 100-pound plus sharks. 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.

CROW Case Of The Week: Common Gallinuleby Patricia MolloyFormerly known as a common moorhen, the common gallinule (Gallinula galeata) is a timid, duck-like bird found in temperate climates throughout the world. Adults possess black and brown plumage accented by white feathers and brightly-colored beaks of orange and yellow. The common gallinule is found in and around freshwater ponds and brackish marshes that contain a lot of aquatic plants. The common gallinule is a particularly interesting bird to watch. Its ability to hop about gracefully on the surface of lily pads and other floating vegetation creates the illusion that it is walking on water. This remarkable behavior is thanks to its long, narrow toes and particularly light body mass. Despite not having webbed feet, the common gallinule is also a proficient swimmer that bobs its head continuously to the rhythm of its feet as it paddles across open bodies of water. While adult gallinules are best known for their fascinating behavior, baby gallinules have their own distinction: they are comically regarded as ugly ducklings. A newly hatched chick possesses a yellow-tipped bill and orange face guard looks much like an Italian masquerade mask. Its perfectly round body appears out of proportion perched atop such long, spindly legs. The two underdeveloped wings, covered with spurs, protrude from its sides. Except for the spurs, the wings are nearly bald, much like the crown of its head. But in the case of the common gallinule, function trumps fashion. The wing spurs, for example, allow the chick to grab emergent vegetation or firmly grasp the sides of the nest when it climbs back in. Much like the homely bird in the Hans Christian Andersen story, every ugly baby gallinule grows up to be a beautifully graceful bird. CROW is currently raising two young common gallinules that were found abandoned or orphaned. Fortunately, both birds were uninjured and appeared to be bright and alert. Being only a few days old, Dr. Heather placed them in a warm incubator in the clinics baby bird room. Over the next few weeks, the tiny common gallinules patients #2124 and #2125 were tong-fed every one to two hours, a monumental task for the staff, students and volunteers at CROW. As the patients grew, they were moved to a larger, metal enclosure that was lined with aquatic plants in an effort to create a more natural environment. As soon as they are old enough, they will be released close to a freshwater pond. As any parent can tell you, it takes a lot of work to raise a baby, said Dr. Heather. But the end result is worth the effort. CROW (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Inc.) is a non-profit wildlife hospital providing veterinary care for native and migratory wildlife from our local area. The hospital accepts patients seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mail donations to PO Box 150, Sanibel, FL 33957. Call 4723644 or visit: Patient #2125, a juvenile common gallinule.

We seem to be ultra-competitive, if not cheap, when compared with the market, said Vice Mayor Doug Congress, who supported a 5 percent increase. The council, however, voted 3 to 2 in favor of the proposed 10 percent hike. Congress and Mayor Kevin Ruane cast both dissenting votes. City Manager Judie Zimomra, who noted that a draft ordinance would be presented during the September 6 meeting, suggested that any new fee structure be effective by November 1, since a majority of membership renewals traditionally take place in December and January. From page 1Library Summer ProgramThe second part of Tuesdays program featured John Storms World of Reptiles. Storms brought his reptilian friends to the library and shared facts about each of them with the audience.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 8, 201418 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, August 15 at 11 a.m. in CROWs Visitor Education Center at 3883 Sanibel-Captiva Road, across from The Sanibel School. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for teens and free for members and children 12 or under.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 8, 201420 Shell Of The WeekThe Tampa Bay Top Snailby Jos H. Leal, PhD, The Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum Curator and Director of EducationThe scientific name of the Tampa Bay top snail, Calliostoma tampaense (Conrad, 1846), pays tribute not only to the place where the species was first found (the specific name tampaense), but also to a shell attribute, via the genus name Calliostoma, the pearly, beautiful (Greek kalos) shell opening, or mouth (Greek stoma). Calliostoma top snails are mostly omnivorous or feed on organic detritus, or, more rarely, carnivorous. The Tampa Bay top snail never reaches beyond an inch in size and is the most common of about four Calliostoma species found locally.

It is monocarpic, meaning that it flowers and fruits only once and then dies. A decade or longer can pass before the flowering occurs although not a century, so the common name is a misnomer. When it does finally bloom, it makes quite a statement, with a flower stalk of more than 20 feet topped with a panicle of white or yellow flowers. Because of its ornamental qualities, this agave is frequently used as a specimen plant or in rock or succulent gardens. The Marginata cultivar pictured here has twisting leaves that arise in a spiral from a tight basal rosette. The leaves can be as several feet long and nearly a foot wide. Blueto gray-green, stiff and swordshaped, they fold upon themselves. That characteristic, along with the leaves yellow stripes, give them a ribbon-like appearance. Sharp spines line the margins, and the tips have curved spines that can be an inch or longer. This plant is very tolerant of drought, heat, and salty conditions. Give it welldrained sandy soil, and ideally, full sun. It makes an excellent security plant or living fence, but should not be placed where it will endanger children or pets. Propagate it with the pups. The plant has many medicinal uses, and the stalk and heart can be roasted and eaten. Another agave species, of which there are hundreds, is used to make tequila. For a similar species that is a Florida native, check out Spanish bayonet (Yucca aloifolia), a relative of the American century plant. It too has spines and is very low-maintenance, but produces beautiful flowers each season. Sources: Florida Landscape Plants by John V. Watkins and Thomas J. Sheehan,, and floridata. com.

33 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 8, 2014Golf Inside The Library? Only On SanibelTuesday, July 29 was the final night of this years Teen VIP After Hours program at the Sanibel Public Library. Youth Librarian Barb Dunkle turned the library into a miniature golf course. Teens and tweens were divided into teams. Each team was turned out on the course with clubs and golf balls (plastic, of course). The kids played eight holes of golf around a course made of books, cardboard mailing tubes, pool noodles, stuffed animals, wooden blocks, rubber mats and more. After the game, everyone enjoyed a make-it-yourself ice cream sundae. Teen VIP After Hours Program is made possible with the support of the Sanibel Public Library Foundation, Inc. and its generous donors.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 8, 201436 Will Bostons Bold Trades Last Week Return The Red Sox To Prominence?by Ed FrankWhen the 4 p.m. deadline arrived last Thursday, it ended the busiest day of player trades in the history of baseball. The question remaining for the ardent fans of the Boston Red Sox is whether Red Sox General Manager Ben Cherington threw in the towel on his last-place team by dumping his best two pitchers or if he outsmarted his fellow GMs by trading for the future? The roller coaster history of his teams the last three seasons has been last-to-first and first-to-last. The 2013 World Series Champion Red Sox began the week in the basement of the American League Eastern Division, 13-1/2 games out of first a dismal record no one expected at the seasons start. The magic of last season when Cherington brought in seven unheralded players to capture the teams third World Series title in the last 10 years is long forgotten. With a 49-62 season record through Sunday, its a lost season, so the shrewd Cherington took some bold strokes last week to begin rebuilding for 2015. You might ask how trading your two best pitchers Jon Lester to the Oakland As and John Lackey to the St. Louis Cardinals is building for the future? Furthermore, you might also ask how trading veteran outfielder Jonny Gomes as part of the As deal and dispatching infielder Stephen Drew to the arch-rival New York Yankees is building for the future? Just look what he got out of these moves: From Oakland, he obtained power-hitting outfielder Yoenis Cespedes to bolster a weak hitting Red Sox outfield. Cespedes 17 home runs are more than the entire Boston outfielders combined. For Lackey, he got outfielder/first-baseman Allen Craig and pitcher Joe Kelley. And in a three-team deal involving the Yankees and Baltimore Orioles, Boston sent reliever Andrew Miller to the Orioles, Drew to the Yankees for infielder Kelly Johnson. We wanted to really give ourselves a head start on building again and becoming as good as we can as quickly as possible, Cherington said. His farm system, one of the best in baseball, is expected to produce along with the hopeful maturity of Xander Bogerts, Jackie Bradley, Jr. and Mookie Betts. Bogerts and Bradley have been disappointments this year. The lack of offense is a major reason for the Red Sox failure. In 2013, they were the only team to exceed 800 runs scored. This season they are on pace to score less than 600. With the departure of Lester and Lackey, starting pitching also is a big question mark for the Red Sox. It is possible that Lester, a free agent at the end of the current season, could return to Boston with a new contract? And Cherington said he will be active in the off-season in the starting pitching market. Obviously, the 2015 season will portray whether Cheringtons moves this past week will return the Red Sox to winning baseball. If it doesnt, at least he tried. And isnt that better than sitting on the sidelines with the underperforming team he had the first four months of the current season? Miracle Snap Six-Game Losing Streak The Fort Myers Miracle baseball team broke a six-game losing streak Monday with a 12-2 road victory over Lakeland. Despite the losing streak, longest of the season for the Miracle, the team was just two games out of first place in the Florida State League South Division through Monday of this week. Mondays victory was highlighted by Miracle outfielder Adam Brett Walkers 22nd home run, tops in the FSL. He also broke the team record set in 2006 by Brock Peterson. While Hammond Stadium is undergoing extensive remodeling, the Miracle will play their home games at nearby Jetblue Park at Fenway South. The Miracle return home Tuesday to begin a six-game home stand, three against St. Lucie and three against Palm Beach.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 8, 201438 Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellEvery life touched by organ and tissue donation crosses a bridge between death and life, grief and meaning, hope and healing. Every donation begins with a generous and selfless decision to help others. These quotes are from organ donor organizations to bring awareness to the importance of signing an organ and tissue donor card. Our guest speaker this week at Rotary, Phil Schomer, is an organ transplant recipient. Schomer spoke to our club back in 2012, just weeks after having his second kidney transplant surgery. At that time, you could tell he was still rather weak. He was not only recovering from surgery, but his body was still adjusting to his new anti-rejection medications. But it was important to him to get the word out. Facts are: On average, 18 people die daily in the U.S. while waiting for an organ transplant; every 11 minutes another name is added to the waiting list; one organ and tissue donor can save eight peoples lives and help 50 others. Schomer look fantastic on this return visit and brought a friend and fellow member of the DonateLife Florida team, Dana Grey, who lost her 22-year-old daughter, Danielle, in an accident in 2007. She made the decision to donated Danielles organs to save others. Schomer brought along a video that told the life story of Jason Kendall Ray, who was a 21-year-old senior at the University of North Carolina when his amazing life came to an abrupt end. He had been UNCs Rams mascot for three long and happy years. In March of 2007, Ray was attending one of the games and staying at a hotel in New Jersey. On March 2, he left his room to grab a quick bite and was accidentally struck by a SUV. He suffered severe head trauma and was pronounced dead only days later. Ray had indicated on his drivers license his wish to be an organ and tissue donor. All told, nearly 50 lives were saved by his generous nature. Rays parents spoke throughout the video. They were so proud of their son and his unselfish decision to sign up to be an organ donor. No greater gift can be given. They said they were not in a place where they could think about doing this and were thankful that he had made the decision. Life and death are only nanoseconds apart. As one family grieves, another receives the gift of life. In the film, Ronald Griffin, 51, former postal worker and grandfather of two, is awaiting a heart transplant. Griffin and Ray were about the same size, same body type and blood type. They were a match and the heart transplant was a success. All of Rays other major organs heart, liver, pancreas, kidneys were used to save others. Nearly 50 lives were saved. It took some time for Rays parents to heal from the tragic loss of their son but they decided they wanted to meet some of the organ recipients. This is a choice meeting, not required by donor families or recipients. This meeting brought together some amazing families who formed a bond; all of them a part of a whole. It is a sad story but an uplifting one as well. As heard on the video, You cant take your organs to heaven, you get new ones there so donate them and save the lives of others right here on earth. You just might get a golden pass through the pearly gates. Grey spoke briefly at the meeting. She told us that just before her daughter died, she had just had a wonderful baby girl, Hannah Renee. Hannah is now realizing how wonderful the gift from her mother was for others and she is now going out and speaking with her grandmother about organ donations. Hannah met the man who received her mothers heart and listened to it beating in his chest. That made it real for her. Today, more than 115,000 children and adults await life-saving organ transplants in the United States. More than 4,000 of them are in Florida.

39 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 8, 2014 Director Of Tennis And Fitness Wins ChampionshipChristie Bradley, USPTA elite professional and director of tennis and fitness at The Sanctuary Golf Club, won the United States Professional Tennis Associations (USPTA) National Clay Court 50s Doubles Championship at the Landings Country Club in Fort Myers this summer. I love playing in tournaments during the summer and I have just as much fun at The Sanctuary teaching and playing with the members throughout the year, Bradley said. Playing tournaments reminds me what it is like for the members when they compete the adrenaline rush, nerves and anticipation. It doesnt matter how long or at what level you compete, you can feel it. I see it not only in the adults, but in the children I coach at The Sanibel School in tennis and volleyball. Christie is a remarkable athlete and an outstanding person. We are all very proud of her continued accomplishments and goals, said Ken Kouril, chief operating officer at The Sanctuary Golf Club. Bradley, in her age group, has been top ranked in Florida and as high as #2 in the nation in singles. Christie Bradley Taste Of The Town Deadline Is September 5There is still time for restaurants to sign up to be in the Junior League of Fort Myers (JLFM) 32nd annual Taste of the Town, which will be held on Sunday, November 2 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The event will once again be held at JetBlue Park, the Boston Red Soxs 106-acre Spring Training and Player Development Complex, located at 11500 Fenway South Drive in Fort Myers. The Junior Leagues Taste of the Town is Southwest Floridas original taste event and one of the largest outdoor food and entertainment festivals drawing nearly 10,000 people each year. The funds benefit the JLFM, whose volunteer mission provides thousands of dollars annually in volunteer services and donations to programs supporting women and children in the region. These programs include the Junior Leagues national program Kids in the Kitchen to help fight childhood obesity, the ongoing work with at-risk girls in the juvenile justice system, as well as work throughout the community in partnership with many organizations through the leagues Helping Hands program, which provides volunteer woman-power to organizations such as Big Brother Big Sisters, the Abuse Counseling & Treatment Shelter, Early Learning Coalition, and the Supporting Independent Young Adults organization. Last years event raised more than $114,000 for these organizations. Applications are still being accepted for local restaurants to showcase their fare in the 2014 Taste of the Town. Interested restaurants and vendors can contact the JLFM at 277-1197 or Space is limited to 50 restaurants and the deadline to participate is Friday, September 5.

We are so excited to have an event like this to share with our community, said Sasha Warren, 2014-2015 president of JLFM. Many of our participating restaurants return year after year, and to us, this speaks worlds about our vendors, as this event provides an opportunity for them to not only connect with Southwest Florida on a business level but also to support people in need by participating in this charity event each year. Prior to the annual Taste of the Town food festival, participating restaurants have the opportunity to present their dishes in the Best of Taste contest with local celebrities judging the following categories: Best Appetizer, Best Entre and Best Dessert. Judging will take place on Tuesday, October 21 at JetBlue Park. The dish with the most overall points is also given the Winners Circle award for best overall dish. Winners in each category will be listed at each restaurants booth, announced the day of the event, given a certificate to display in their restaurant and mentioned in a press release announcing the winners in each category. This event is so much more than a fundraiser; its a win-win for our community, Warren said. Taste of the Town promotes and supports local businesses and the musical arts, creates resources for community service and brings our community together.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 8, 201440 Rec Campers Take Bus Trip To Rays Gameby Jeff LysiakA group of 50 youngsters enrolled in Sanibel Recreation Centers summer day camp program enjoyed a day at the ballpark last week, traveling to St. Petersburg to see the hometown Tampa Bay Rays take on the Milwaukee Brewers. And although the Rays wound up losing the game, the baseball-loving bunch from the islands reported having a terrific time especially after running the bases on a big league diamond throughout the entire trip. Campers, counselors and adult chaperones boarded a pair of luxury buses from The Sanibel School on Wednesday morning prior to making the 144-mile journey to Tropicana Field. Along the way, the group watched movies including Good Burger and Rookie Of The Year, or played hand-held electronic games. About 30 minutes prior to first pitch, the buses arrived at the ballpark. Its a lot bigger than I remember, said camper Amelia White upon seeing Tropicana Field, the domed stadium that hosts the Rays. I came to see a game two years ago I love baseball. Once the group made its way through the turnstiles, into the stadium and into Section 131 where their seats were located, the ballgame was just getting under way. Fans cheered on the Rays players the loudest roars dedicated to star slugger Evan Longoria and starting pitcher David Price with hollars, whistles and inflatable boom bats, noisemakers handed out to all kids 14 and under. I rooted for the Rays during the game, but my favorite team is the Chicago Cubs, said Seth Stanley of Sanibel, who added that his favorite food enjoyed at the ballpark was the blue cotton candy. This ballpark is perfect, said fellow Cubs and cotton candy fan Samuel Paul. I like that its a domed stadium it stays nice and cool inside. While there were few highlights for Tampa Bays faithful, as the Rays were shut out by the visitors from Milwaukee, 5-0, there were plenty of happy memories savored during the matinee: gourmet food from ballpark restaurants including Outback Steakhouse and Everglades BBQ Smokehouse, dancing between innings with DJ Kitty, rooting for giant beverages in the Pepsi Bottle Race and, of course, interacting with the Rays mascot, Raymond. But perhaps the biggest highlight of the day came after the ballgame, when the Sanibel Rec Center group was allowed onto the field for a dash around the bases. The entire entourage was permitted to walk on the big league diamond, exiting Tropicana Field through the wall in centerfield.

41 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 8, 2014 When a person passes away, he or she oftentimes will leave a trust that names a spouse, child or other loved one as a beneficiary. It might be a lifetime income trust, or sometimes it includes principal distributions as well for the beneficiarys health, education, maintenance and/or support. Sometimes the existence of these trusts just becomes a part of ones life. The beneficiary doesnt think much about it. They know that theyre going to receive an income deposit in their checking account every month. But when you are planning your estate, it is it is important to let your estate planning attorney know that you are a beneficiary of a trust. There may be several legal, tax and financial ramifications that you may have some control over and want to plan for. If you dont tell your attorney that the trust exists, then your estate plan may be incomplete. When you are a beneficiary of the trust, the relevant information to give to your attorney includes providing him or her a copy of the trust instrument, an inventory and current value of the trust assets and income, and the name and address of the trustee. If a Federal Estate Tax Return Form 706 was filed upon your loved ones death who established the trust for your benefit, then you should give a copy of that return to your estate planning attorney. Similarly, if a state death tax return was filed, your estate planning attorney would probably want a copy of that return as well. There are a few reasons for this. First, the trust assets might be included in your estate for estate tax purposes. Your estate planning attorney needs to determine if this is the case, and if so, if there are any proactive planning opportunities available that can mitigate those taxes. Second, you may have the power to change the disposition of those trust assets at your death. A trust may pay the income beneficiary for life, and then at the end of the income beneficiarys lifetime the assets are commonly distributed to that beneficiarys children. Sometimes, however, the trust contains something known as a power of appointment. That power of appointment may allow the current income beneficiary to reroute the assets to his or her spouse, as one example. The way this is accomplished is by exercising the power through ones own will. Yet another reason that you would want your estate planning attorney to review any trust under which you are a beneficiary is due to the control factor. In some instances, you have no control over the trust. Perhaps a bank or trust company controls the assets. In other instances, however, you may act as the trustee, or you may even be able to remove and replace the trustees of the trust. Depending upon a variety of factors, you may want to change the named trustees. Ive personally had several clients that failed to mention trusts where they receive an income or other beneficial interest. This could cause unexpected and adverse consequences to the estate plan. So its usually a good idea to point this out during your consultation meetings. Craig R. Hersch.

The Rating Outlook on all bonds was changed by Fitch to Stable from Negative. The bonds are payable from the net revenues generated by the operations of Southwest Florida International Airport. The A rating is based on Southwest Florida International Airport having a well-balanced mix of major air carriers serving leisure travel with a competitive cost per enplaned passenger, lack of significant competition in the region, operating with a conservative debt structure and robust liquidity as compared to peers, as well as a manageable, demand-driven five-year capital improvement plan with no additional near-term borrowing anticipated. The change to a Stable Outlook reflects traffic levels that are showing signs of improvement amid an economic recovery within the airports greater service area. Fitch noted the airports traffic and operations have recovered to the extent that earlier concerns about debt service coverage and increased airline costs are now less material.

Ball, A.A.E., executive director of the Lee County Port Authority.

ISLAND SUN AUGUST 8, 201442 School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My first child is going to kindergarten in a couple of weeks, and I am unsure of just about everything with the school. School was never a great place for me and I want his experience to be much better than mine. The good news is he is very excited, but I am a bit nervous. What should I know? Tara S., Foet Myers Tara, There are so many feelings to sort through when your first child goes to school. Its an exciting but often a bittersweet experience because you know that your child is growing up. Processing these feelings is very important and you will find lots of articles in magazines, online or in newspapers that address this topic. Right now, I will provide you with some very basic practicalities that will be helpful and get you started as a responsible school parent. So here are some things to expect when your child goes to kindergarten. School Papers You will get a list of important school staff and procedures, including a calendar of school holidays, early dismissals and parent-teacher conference dates. Always read any notices the school sends home carefully so that you are aware of any upcoming events or changes to information you already have. Be sure to provide the school with your contact information and let the school know of any changes during the year. You should also identify at least two other people that the school can call if you cannot be reached during an emergency or if your child becomes sick at school. Make a plan for times when your child has to come home earlier than expected. Your childs class may have a phone tree or other plan for unexpected early school closings. If your child is to go to another location, be sure to discuss the plan with your child, the teacher, bus driver or carpool driver, and the person who will be responsible for your child until you can get home. Never leave your child alone. Remember that emergencies can occur, and you want to have a good plan in place so that your child is safe. Personal Property In School A list of needed school supplies is usually given to parents before school begins; these lists can often be found at local stores. Be sure to clearly mark your childs name on all personal items that are brought to school. Do not let your child bring unnecessary personal items to school. Return any unfamiliar items that are brought home as soon as possible. Medicine Medicines, including over-the-counter pain relievers, cannot be given at school without written parent permission. Medicines have to be in prescription bottles with doctors directions clearly visible. Your school will probably have a specific permission form, and designated school staff must control all medications. Your child cannot keep any medicines in his or her own possession at school. Parents should inform the school office if their child is sick with a contagious disease. Some common infectious diseases are: measles, mumps, whooping cough, chicken pox, hepatitis, strep throat, scarlet fever, mononucleosis, influenza, pink eye, ringworm and head lice. Parent-Teacher Conferences Parent-teacher conferences are usually scheduled twice a year, near the times that report cards are issued. You will usually receive a notice to let you know of the dates and times available for meeting with your childs teacher. You can also contact your childs teacher at any time during the school year. Teachers are usually working with children throughout the school day, so they may let you know how it is easiest to contact them at back-to-school night or in written notes home. Your school will also probably have some rules to make sure that children can learn without interruptions, so be sure to check with the office before trying to visit the classroom.

McQuade, LL.M.Estate Planning Insurance Tip Do Condo Owners Need Flood Coverage?by Angela Larson RoehlYou may or may not have a separate Flood policy for your condo unit, as most owners feel that they are covered by the Condo Associations Flood policy. And that is true, however, there are still advantages to having an individual Flood policy that provides for Building and Contents coverage: Condo Association doesnt have a Flood policy Condo Associations Flood policy is insufficient in coverage Condo Association assesses unit owners for a flood loss The Condo Associations Flood policy is primary in case of a flood loss and coverage will not exceed the maximum standard flood limit for building of $250,000 no matter if the unit owner also has building coverage listed on their individual flood policy. The individual Flood policy will, however, cover some cases of loss assessment up to the building limit on the policy with no deductible. Another advantage of having an individual Flood policy is coverage for your contents (furniture, clothes, dishes, linens and other miscellaneous items). The Condo Association Master Flood policy does not offer coverage for unit owners contents. Condo unit owners should request a copy of Condo Associations Flood policy to verify the coverage being provided; then contact their insurance agent to discuss their individual Flood insurance.

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

Eden Energy MedicineEEM First Aid Digestive Rumbles Resolved by Karen L. Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAML (03-12) Part IILast week, you learned three techniques to resolve digestion troubles. This week, you splurged on the brie cheese appetizer, a rich gourmet white sauce over grouper and a flaming desert. Now what? EEM to the rescue with three more tools: 1. Using your knuckles with firm deep pressure, rub the large intestine Neurolymphatic reflex points on the outside of your upper thighs for 1 or 2 minutes. Make nice deep circles as you move up and down on both sides at the same time. 2. Place the right hand over the stomach organ itself, directly under the bottom of the left rib cage. With the other hand, place the thumb and baby finger on the stomach points (see last weeks column for location) and the index and middle finger at the inside edge of the eyebrows, close to the bridge of the nose. Hold for several minutes until you feel a shift. You are now connecting the energy of the stomach itself to the stomach meridian and bladder (which governs the nervous system). 3. Rub the Ileocecal valve, which is situated between the small and large intestine on the right side of the body and governed by the kidney meridian. If you place the top knuckle (where it attaches to the palm) of the little finger of your right hand on your right hip bone with your palm flat and the rest of the fingers touching one another, you will be over this valve. Rub it with firm pressure while pulling up 7 inches on an inhalation. To maximize the pressure, you may place your left hand on top of the fingers and press in. Repeat four times. End by pushing the fingers downward one time. Have fun with your energy! Next weeks topic is EEM First Aid Ileocecal Valve Explained. If you have a question, email Karen Semmelman at SemmEnergyCenter@ Learn more at EEM does not diagnose or cure illness, but working with subtle energies of the body has been shown to help many conditions.

You create the quality of your life and it all depends on the choices you make. You can choose to have a balanced, beautiful lifestyle by eating healthy and spending time with your loved ones. You can choose to remove negative thoughts and feelings and focus on positivity. But when it comes to those big, potentially life-altering decisions, we tend to listen to everyone except the most important person our self. The answers to your important questions are already within you you just have to look inside. Sometimes its helpful to do your research and seek advice and opinions from friends or family, especially if they have experience or wisdom relating to your situation, but the decision is ultimately yours to make. I know lots of teens and young adults, and like most their age, as they get closer to graduating high school or college and start planning their next steps, sometimes theyre unsure about what they should do and what the future holds for them. I ask them what theyre passionate about, what excites them and what makes them happy, and I tell them they should build around that. Then, I give each of them the same advice look inside and listen to your heart. When I graduated high school and moved across the country to California to begin my career in the beauty industry, it was one of the easiest decisions I ever made. As with any big decision, I took time to pray and reflect, and I looked inside myself and listened to what my heart and soul were telling me to do to follow my passion for inspiring people and helping them to discover beauty and balance, inside and out. Settling down on beautiful Sanibel Island was another easy decision for me. As my skincare business grew I considered moving to Los Angeles and New York, but I loved the islands so much. When I looked inside, my heart told me where I was supposed to be, and I know I couldnt have picked a better community to raise a family in. Whenever Im trying to make a big decision, I find inspiration in the affirmation I let my soul guide me in the right direction. If youre trying to solve a problem or make a hard choice, do some soul-searching pray, meditate, think and reflect on what your heart is telling you. Consider which decision will bring you balance and happiness in the five most important aspects of your life emotionally, spiritually, physically, environmentally and socially. Sometimes, we decide to do what seems right or makes sense because its easy or because we rely too much on what other people think. If it seems right to everyone else but feels wrong to you, then its probably not the right choice. Dont get too distracted by what youre reading on the Internet or hearing on TV. Ignore negativity and unhelpful criticism that hinders instead of helps you. Sometimes, we choose the wrong things or we discover something new and change our mind. Sometimes, our lives and priorities suddenly become different. When that happens, take a step back, make some new decisions and get back on the right path. Your heart will always guide you in the right direction. Look inside the choice is yours! Kay Casperson lives on Sanibel.

47 ISLAND SUN AUGUST 8, 2014 deaRPharmacistAre You Peeing Out Your Vitamins?by Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: I have high blood pressure and my doctor recommended a diuretic and another medicine to relax my blood vessels. Do you think I should take it? JS, Sacramento, California I couldnt possibly know whats right for you, but if you decide to take a prescription diuretic or other drug, there are certain things you need to know to stay safe. For example, this: Diuretics or water pills and other blood pressure medications in general, often cause you to pee out important life-giving nutrients. These nutrients are necessary to make other organs run efficiently. These nutrients are needed for mood, sleep and muscle health. Drug-induced nutrient depletions are my pet peeve, so much so, I wrote a book on it. Its a number one Amazon best-seller, if that tells you how much people rely on it. Right now, I will explain for all the world to hear how popular medications lead to new diseases. Having this information in your back pocket means you can say to your doctor, Hey, I have these side effects, do you mind if I grab some vitamins and minerals to offset the imbalance that my drug is creating? Or you can say this, too: Doc, are you sure I have this disease, or could it be a side effect from the first drug you gave me? Knowing about drug muggers enables you to put back what you are peeing out, and when your nutrient status is restored, you are less likely to be mistakenly diagnosed with a disease you really dont have. Dont just go off blood pressure medications without having a Plan B in place, and your physicians approval. These drugs have a place and are used to reduce edema and fluid retention in your legs, and to ease the shortness of breath that some of you experience as a result of congestion of fluid in your lungs. Loop diuretics (furosemide, bumetanide) Reduces calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc, vitamin B1 (thiamine), vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) and vitamin C. Loop diuretics are the second biggest drug mugger I can think of, right behind acid blockers. When you take a loop diuretic, you can expect to become depleted in these nutrients within weeks, meaning all kinds of symptoms pop up that look like new diseases. So to make sure you dont suffer while taking this medication, I suggest you get a highquality form of each of those nutrients, or a medical food that is approved by your physician. A multi wont do. Potassium-sparing (amiloride, triamterene, spironolactone) These are considered relatively weak diuretics and often used in combination with stronger ones. These reduce calcium, zinc and folate. A reduction in these can worsen your ability to detoxify and rid yourself of poisons (by cramping your methylation pathway), and weaken your bones, cause spasms, cramps, cardiac rhythm disturbances and poor libido. A comprehensive version of this article (including more popular medications) is posted at my website, www.suzycohen. com. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

Dr. Connie Is Inby Constance ClancyQ: I have lived in a large city for 15 years and city life is getting to me. I feel I need to stay in the city due to my job. I have a wife and family and I feel we are more stressed with this lifestyle. We have discussed moving to a place where our lifestyle is less hectic, but I dont know what to do for work. Is it worth it to give good money all up for a simpler life?A: I believe many families are weighing this today as the stress of modern day living is not easy. While there are many places that are conducive to less stressful living, every locality can experience unexpected events. The choice is really up to you, especially with your work situation. Have you begun a search to find similar work in another location? You may want to seek a headhunter for help. It is beneficial if we can choose to live our lives that reduce stress and give us enjoyment. Many families move away from the city to live in smaller communities. They may make less income, yet the cost of living is lower. You have to weigh all of this out and talk with your family about where you may want to relocate to and what do you resonate with as being a harmonious environment? Ask yourself if it is worth it to you to modify your current environment for a healthier lifestyle. While there may be some initial sacrifices, you may feel that it is workable and you would have more gains in the long run.

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, My husband and I are getting to the stage where we must make some major changes in our housing. My son and daughter-in-law have taken us to see a number of retirement complexes in our area. My husband wants to go, but I do not. He is convinced that we will be robbed blind and does not want our privacy invaded if we have daily help coming in. I think we should stay in our own home, have help come in and let them take whatever they want. All of our good stuff will have been removed and be gone anyway. What advice do you have? Louisa Dear Louisa, Both of you raise good concerns about moving versus staying home. It shows that moving into a community or staying home is an important decision, a decision that should not be rushed and needs to be researched completely to make the most informed choice. Know the reasons why your husband wants to move and you want to stay. Explore how the needs can be met in a community versus home, at what cost and at what risks. Also, please do not be swayed into a decision by people who have an interest in your choice. You make the choice when and if you are ready. Pryce Dear Louisa, I have observed that partially due to the economy many people are choosing to stay in their own homes rather than move to a complex. In order to meet this need, care-giving agencies have been formed who will visit the home and then leave. I am sure that if you inquire you will find that they are bonded. Privately arranged care plans may have some thievery, but there are many or most who are honest, decent people. We are all exposed to dishonest people every day of our lives, but most people are honest.

Or it could be an energy-draining exercise in futility. Be certain your goals are worth your efforts. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The Divine Bovine might be seeing red at having your crisis-resolution efforts overlooked. But others know the truth, and they can be expected to step forward when the time comes. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You should be well on your way to finally making that important decision. Having the support of loved ones will help when crunch time comes. Keep a positive attitude. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Feeling uneasy about a move might not mean youre having a case of Cancerian wavering. It could be your inner sense is warning you to reassess your situation before taking action. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Your pride could get in the way of admitting you might have erred. Best to fess up now before a small mistake turns into a big misunderstanding. Make the weekend a special family time. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Trying to please someone with a less-thanglowing opinion of something you value could be a waste of time. If you like it, stay with it. The weeks end brings an answer to an old mystery. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) There might be time to make a change. But be honest with yourself: Is it what you really want, or one you feel pressured into making? Your answer should determine your next move. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Change is dominant, but so is caution: Proceed carefully, checking each step along the way to avoid encountering any unwelcome surprises that might be lurking along your path. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) It could be a mistake to rely on someone to keep his or her promise without checking out previous performances. What you learn now could save you from a painful lesson later. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Taking a strong stand on an issue you feel is too important to ignore could inspire others to follow suit. The weekend is a good time to socialize with old friends and make new ones. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Your sensitive nature gives you an insight into the problems of someone close to you. Your offer of support could be just what this person needs to start turning his or her life around. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Financial matters continue to need even more careful analysis than usual. Use caution with investment possibilities. A personal relationship might take an unexpected turn by the weeks end. BORN THIS WEEK: You appreciate the wonders of the world and enjoy sharing your delight with others. On Aug. 16, 1920, Cleveland Indians shortstop Ray Chapman is struck in the temple by a ball pitched by Carl Mays of the New York Yankees. He died 12 hours later. After Chapmans injury, it was mandated that scuffed or discolored balls be replaced with new white ones, making them easier to see. On Aug. 17, 1933, New York Yankees first baseman Lou Gehrig plays in his 1,308th consecutive game, breaking former Yankee Everett Scotts record for consecutive games played. Gehrig would go on to play in 2,130 games in a row, setting a record that would stand for over half a century. On Aug. 13, 1948, U.S. and British planes airlift a record amount of supplies into sections of Berlin under American and British control. Despite terrible weather, crowded airspace and exhaustion of the pilots and crews, more than 700 British and American planes brought in nearly 5,000 tons of supplies. On Aug. 12, 1953, less than a year after the United States tested its first hydrogen bomb, the Soviets detonate a 400-kiloton device in Kazakhstan. Known as the Layer Cake, the bomb was fueled by layers of uranium and lithium deuteride, a hydrogen isotope. On Aug. 15, 1969, the Woodstock Music Festival opens on a patch of farmland in White Lake, New York. By the time the gates opened, more than 400,000 people were clamoring to get in. Those without tickets simply walked through gaps in the fences, and the organizers were eventually forced to make the event free of charge. On Aug. 11, 1973, American Graffiti, a nostalgic coming-of-age tale steeped in the car-centric culture of suburban California, is released in theaters. The film went on to become a sleeper hit. On Aug. 14, 1985, Michael Jackson purchases the publishing rights to the vast majority of the Beatles catalog for $47 million, outbidding even Paul McCartney. In later years, the catalog -now estimated to be worth in excess of $1 billion -allowed Jackson to remain solvent by serving as collateral for several enormous personal loans. It was ancient Greek philosopher Plato who made the following sage observation: Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will find a way around the laws. How would you like to brush your teeth with salt, chalk or ground brick? The first tooth powders that were used with toothbrushes were made of just such materials. When you think of hibernating bears, you typically imagine some cozy cave in the woods, right? Well, the next time youre out for a winter hike, youd better pay close attention to exactly where youre going; some bears spend the cold season curled up on the ground in large nests made of branches. Greyhounds have better vision than any other breed of dog. Every May, horse lovers flock to Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky, to see the worlds finest thoroughbreds race in the Kentucky Derby. While there, spectators will collectively consume more than 1,800 gallons of mint juleps. If youre a cat lover, you might not be surprised to learn that a group of felines can be referred to as a glaring, a pounce, a clutter or a clowder. Feral cats en masses are known as a destruction of cats. People who sustain brain injuries can suffer from a variety of maladies. One of the stranger ones is anosognosia. The victim suffers from some sort of disability, such as losing the ability to move a limb, but thats not unusual; what makes anosognosia so fascinating is that the person suffering from the limitation seems completely unable to believe that any limitation exists, despite voluminous evidence to the contrary. The only difference between me and a madman is that I am not mad. -Salvador Dali THIS WEEK IN HISTORY THOUGHT FOR THE DAY STRANGE BUT TRUE

Remove excess water, and then hang dry or lay flat, according to the garments instruction. Heres an oldie but a goodie! Iced coffee is at its best when brewed with twice the usual amount of ground coffee, because the coffee is diluted by the melting ice cubes. Or use regular-strength brewed ice coffee and serve over coffee ice cubes. Theyre easy to prepare: Pour cool brewed coffee into ice-cube trays and freeze. Clear bins make it easy to group like items in your pantry. You can remove the bin, get what you need and replace it rather than digging through cans and boxes on a shelf and having to straighten it back up when youre done.

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. Don't Harm The Fishby Capt.
