When the legislature convenes next year, one of the budget priorities it is expected to address is record funding for environmental conservation projects, which have received a wide range of support from conservation and environmental groups. Florida continues to lead the U.S. as a tourist and recreational destination known for its Atlantic and Gulf Coast beaches, estuaries, the Everglades, fishing and other sporting destinations. In order to preserve the state’s natural resources, Gov. Ron DeSantis’ "Freedom First" budget directs $4.4 billion to a variety of environmental and water conservation projects. “Florida’s natural resources are the foundation of our state’s communities,” the governor said when announcing his budget priorities earlier this month. “The environment drives tourism, affects property values, anchors many local economies and is central to our quality of life.” The governor’s budget proposes more than $980 million to restore the Everglades and protect Florida’s water resources. It builds on an executive order DeSantis previously issued calling for $2.5 billion to be invested over four years for the protection of water resources. The proposed funding surpasses that, bringing Florida’s four-year investment to $3 billion, and doubles the investment of the previous four years. The funding includes more than $660 million for Everglades restoration, $195 million for targeted water quality improvements, $35 million to improve water quality and combat the negative impacts of harmful algal blooms, including blue-green algae, and $5 million in additional funding dedicated to address red tide cleanup. “When I took office, I outlined a bold vision to protect Florida’s environment, and we have not only kept the promises we made, we’ve exceeded them,” DeSantis said. “We have seen great results so far, but we are not yet at the finish line. It’s nice to see so many coming together to support these initiatives.” From Island to Bay, News at Sea Level Volume 7 Issue 12 Production@sunbaypaper.com www.TheSunBayPaper.com December 31, 2021 - January 6, 2022 Right... All Along Cont. pg 6 Small, unique antibody-like proteins known as VNARs -- derived from the immune systems of sharks -- can prevent the virus that causes COVID-19, its variants, and related coronaviruses from infecting human cells, according to a new study published last week. The new VNARs will not be immediately available as a treatment in people, but they can help prepare for future coronavirus outbreaks. The shark VNARs were able to neutralize WIV1-CoV, a coronavirus that is capable of infecting human cells but currently circulates only in bats, where SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, likely originated. Developing treatments for such animal-borne viruses ahead of time can prove useful if those viruses make the jump to people. "The big issue is there are a number of coronaviruses that are poised for emergence in humans," says Aaron LeBeau, a University of Wisconsin-Madison professor of pathology who helped lead the study. "What we're doing is preparing an arsenal of shark VNAR therapeutics that could be used down the road for future SARS outbreaks. It's a kind of insurance against the future." Shark Antibody-Like Proteins Neutralize COVID-19 Virus, Help Prepare for Future Coronaviruses For many people, the dawn of the new year is marked not only with celebration, but also the opportunity for personal reflection and growth. But as the year progresses, our initial drive for self-betterment can falter but our tendency to give up can be circumvented. There are various ways we can strengthen our commitment to our new year’s goal. According to a study published in the Journal of Clinical Psychology, over half of the people who set a goal for the new year will fail, finding only 46% of people who made New Year’s resolutions were successful. But me, being a glass half full kinda guy sees that as almost half succeeded! So look to your left and then to your right when with family, friends and co-workers, almost every other one of you ...will succeed! The study also found 74% of participants listed their most important resolution as the same, or nearly the same, as in the previous year. And, more than half of the resolutions focused on either “Weight Loss” (29%) or “Exercise” (24%) followed by “Quit Smoking”. (less people are smoking these days so this percentage has dropped) This suggests health-related goals tend to get rebooted each year — perhaps because New Year’s Day follows plenty of end-of-year festivities and feasting. Furthermore, despite the participants reporting a strong commitment to their listed resolution, many gave up within one month…. One Month!!! Other studies have shown similarly high rates for not sticking with new year’s resolutions. So how do we increase our odds? How To Succeed This Year! As we said many resolutions are recycled from last year… many resolutions involve losing weight. Here are a few suggestions to help with that one…. For example, the resolution to “lose ten pounds” will After the federal government began dolling out trillions of dollars in coronavirus stimulus money, criminals saw the windfall as an opportunity ripe for theft. Since early last year, Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody’s office began issuing consumer alerts to warn Floridians about a range of scams. The latest consumer alert issued Monday warns Floridians about fraudulent robotexts being used to trick consumers into sharing their personal or financial information. Robotexts are sent to users’ phones from unknown numbers that often contain malware or lead to malicious websites. With Americans on track to receive 86 billion automated texts this year, according to Robokiller.com, robotexts have become more prevalent than robocalls, and Floridians are expected to receive nearly 5 billion this year, making Florida one of the most spam-texted states in the nation.

The Sun Bay Paper Page 3 December 31, 2021 - January 6, 2022 Raw, cold-pressed fresh juices are all the rage these days, but they can also be dangerous to consume if you don’t enjoy them right away. Because these bottled juices are not pasteurized, they can easily become full of dangerous bacteria and yeast. So it’s recommended to never, ever consume these drinks after the expiration date on the bottle. And that date is often a mere two days after it’s been bottled. If the juice is expired, discard it and recycle the bottle. The next time you squeeze a lemon, don’t toss the cut fruit into the trash. Instead, put the wrung-out lemon on the top rack of your dishwasher. The natural citric acid in lemon will work to leave your dishes spotless. And it also helps freshen, leaving a very faint lemon smell. When it’s time to unload the dishwasher, you can take the very used lemon and toss it into the garbage disposal with some ice; the lemon will disinfect and the ice will sharpen the blades. Triple-duty idea! To protect the indoor air quality at your home, never leave a car idling in the garage, even if it’s just for one minute. The fumes from the car can enter the home and contribute toward an unhealthy indoor air environment. The same goes for turning on gas-powered outdoor tools; always do it away from the house, on the driveway or lawn. And use a charcoal grill away from the house, never right by the door. The harmful emissions from these household items need open air for proper dispersal. Raw Juice Love Lemons Indoor Air If you have a yoga mat that you use all the time, consider giving it a good cleaning so your healthy routine keeps you healthy. First, yoga mats are machine washable. Wash them alone with very little soap in cold water and tumble dry on medium or high heat until dry. You can also spritz mats with a mixture of water and white vinegar, and wipe them down with a terry towel between uses to clean and disinfect. But one thing to never do: Don’t let them dry out in the sun. It may sound like a good idea to let the UV rays disinfect, but it can dry out the mat and make the material crumble. Clean Yogo When it rains, toxic substances can make their way into our waterways. For instance, when storm water flows across hard surfaces like concrete or asphalt, it picks up all of the chemicals that may be on those surfaces and brings them down the storm drains. To prevent toxic runoff, consider placing gravel along the border of your driveway or sidewalk so the toxins in storm water have a chance to settle before they get into waterways. Toxic Rain That blue windshield wiper fluid you use in your car is pretty toxic. It contains something called methanol, which is added to keep the fluid from freezing. With billions of gallons of this fluid being used every year, this is a contaminant that pollutes waterways and can hurt children and animals through accidental poisoning. Look for methanol-free formulas, which are plant-based and designed for spring/summer use. For winter use, look for brands that use a tiny trace of methanol, which is good for conditions down to minus 15 degrees. Wiper Fluid You’ve probably vacuumed and dusted around the house before and noticed more allergens and dust seem to have been released into the air. Do this one thing to clear the air after cleaning: Turn on the AC. Turn on the “fan” setting on your thermostat; this keeps the furnace on whether you’re using it for heating or cooling. The blower then sucks air in through the vents, which means the airborne particles are sucked into the system and eventually caught in your air filter. When you’re done, turn the thermostat off and put it back on “auto” mode. Danny Seo Clear the Air

THAT’S THE FUNDAMENTAL CHANGE OBAMA PROMISSED! THE REVELATION… MANY PEOPLE BELIEVE THERE WILL BE AN ATTEMPTED HIGH TECH COUPE IN 2022… because the evidence is there… read on... From 2008 to 2016, I thought Obama wanted to create chaos so he could order Martial Law… he built all those prison like holding centers…! He said repeatedly he’ll Fundamentally Change America…apparently, he never read the Constitution…there’s no such Amendment! Unless you had a recent real-estate transaction, you wouldn’t know that most all real-estate transactions (like house sales)… are all digital and you don’t get a paper original Deed, Search, Survey unless you insist! Wonder why there are, all of a sudden, Title thefts and a push to get Title Theft Insurance…that’s all due to Digital and the Internet, and the click of a button? My opinion…insist on ORIGINAL stamped, signed blue ink, paper, for your Deed, Search, Title Insurance and Survey! If you don’t have paper copies, get them. Also…keep current paper copies of bank, fiduciary accounts. WHAT IF THEY DO SHUT DOWN THE INTERNET…with the click of that same button? Let’s call that step number one…shut down the Internet! Step number 2, erase all digital data they want gone…digital Deeds, bank accounts, Social Medias and take ownership of those deeds…now prove your former house and former bank accounts are yours…there’s no records. But don’t worry, they’ll rent it back to you and give you a job to pay and good news, the government will forgive ALL debt but they have to keep your money!!! The only bad news is you own, NOTHING, have only those Rights they grant to you, there’s no Constitution, no due process…and no appeals. That’s exactly how Saudi Arabia operates…Sharia Law. Step number 3 is very bad…shut down power plants…the grid. Now we are in trouble, because we can’t live without electricity. Food, water, heat, respirators, Medicines…name it … we need it! Also…many power plants cannot tolerate a shutdown to cold, they will be ruined. Now these “A”holes can play God…because you put them in control…after they told you they will “Fundamentally Change America”…you got what you deserve…if you don’t think they are capable…better pull your head out from where you have had it stuck. The Fundamental Change they promised you…has arrived!!! Step 4 relates to stocks, bonds, and other digital dollars. I’m not too familiar with stocks and bonds as I like to see/hold what I own…but it will probably take a dump too. Then they move to quell any uprising, if they have armed support (Military or Police)…they may not. Our Patriates (lead by our Special Forces) will refuse to violate their Oaths!! THE EVIDENCE SUMMARY… If you would just LISTEN to what Joe Biden and Hussein Obama say and then BELIEVE, what these two Scoundrels are TELLING YOU about their “fundamental changes”… then ask why…why would a President who swore to PROTECT, PRESERVE and DEFEND, AMERICA, the Constitution ,you and me …intentionally do the OPPOSITE??!! In my last two columns (Sun Bay, Dec 17th and 3rd, 2021) I tried to explain to you how their actions are anything BUT protecting us! There is no sense detailing them again…read them yourself. I have been trying to figure out how these scoundrels could accomplish the almost impossible, with 130 million legally armed citizens? “HOW”? Then I received recently, anonymous information about the Internet and its vulnerability…that sections have been shut down by the government as “tests” and BINGO, it all falls in place. This is the ONLY feasible way! In my opinion, Biden and Obama are working together to destroy our Constitutional Republic. Look at all the Laws they are VIOLATING! By violating our Naturalization and Immigrations Laws and allowing unabated, mass invasion of aliens through open Borders (over 2,000,000 so far in2020)…Think about this…those people are NOT tested for anything, are not vaccinated, not vetted, not quarantined, they include the good, the bad and the ugly and we don’t have any idea which is which…all while WE are slapped with mandatory shots, confinement, masks, ID to buy a 6 pack of beer…to protect us? To protect us… this is what President Trump did, he enforced the LAWs …he prohibited those who want to harm us from entering and when challenged, by those who are our current leaders ,Pres Trump took his actions to the Supreme Court and won…he then continued to enforce the Immigration and Naturalization laws, put up the wall …and allowed Customs, Border Patrol, ICE, Homeland Security to do their jobs instead of overwhelming them with baby sitting and chasing criminals through a very dangerous environment! If you still believe that Obiden and Obama ARE protecting us and increasing safety in our homes and streets, by violating our Rule of law, by those open Borders, by closing power plants to stop “Global Warming”…please stop reading this…really. Go pick up a comic book, Marvel has many you can learn from, just wait…and see, maybe I’m wrong. When leaders turn on their people that they are sworn to protect …there must come a time when you recognize what they are really doing… “These don’t look like showers”… or you will have the same fate of those who failed to recognize the, “showers”…in the 1940s in Germany! Patriotic leaders do not stop nor reduce the production and supply of commodities that all their citizens depend upon to live… like food, like refined petroleum products, natural gas, like ½ million acres in Wyoming and 3 trillion barrels of oil in the Colorado Green River WITHOUT viable/reliable replacement fuel for power…all for NO GOOD REASON! Neither Global Warming nor Climate Change are viable reasons…you must stop believing that nonsense “Those are showers”… it’s simply is NOT true! First- contrary to what you have been told, there is no scientific proof that Global Warming or Cooling is actually happening as a trend… there’s no different to what Planet Earth has been doing for 4.5 Billion years…no different than all the planets in our Universe! There is proof that both happen irregularly but trying to compare 50 years of temp swings to 4.5 billion years is as insignificant as peeing in the Oceans. There is temperature change …every freaking day…on that we all agree …HOWEVER, there is nothing man can do to slow down the Earth on its axis or its speed around the sun or warm or cool Planet Earth!…that’s a fact! Fact: In 2015 NASA reported on a study in Antarctica and found, from core samples, that the Antarctic Ice Land Mass is colder, thicker and larger than 10,000 years ago! You never heard that did you…google it? You probably heard that the Arctic Ice Cap lost 1 million Square miles of ice over a 10 year period and the Polar Bears are all dying. But I’ll bet you never heard that the million miles lost over that 10 years was regained in “1 year from 2011 to 2012”! I’ll bet, you never heard that a study on Polar Bears by the Weather Channel founder, John Coleman, proved that from the first record of Polar Bear counting to 2018,by Officials in Polar Bear States, their population is higher than ever! Making Planet Earth’s temperature, America’s biggest problem is a, “the sky is falling”, fantasy and a distraction from the real problem…and that is “them”, Biden , Obama and Obama’s former staff and what they are doing to this country…killing your Constitution and Rights…using every scare tactic they can think up!!! Fact: Climate Changes have been evolving on planet Earth for 4.5 Billion years…yes it’s a fact! The only thing we can do to change, some of the Climate Changes that God has in store for us, is to “pray”! Then do like Obiden and Obama do…claim OPEC did it or the truckers did it, or… better yet, blame Trump or just make something up! One more thing…NASA and numerous other US government Agencies have found that the data from the UN IPCC , the left’s only data source…the same source that Al Gore; his Gore-ites, that predicted the Glacer melt Down of 2015 that didn’t happen, as well as all the phony info they put out was based upon phony info from…that same UN IPCC. The IPCC is the source Obama, Obiden and all the left experts rely on for Climate Change data. As far as, “Trump did it”, all right… he increased oil production, resupplied our emergency oil reserve, started the Keystone 900,000 barrels a day, he increased the Bakken to 1 million barrels per day, opened the government owned Green River Reserves and expanded exploration where there is oil and sold what he wanted to the Arabs! He also, in his spare time, made China pay us 1 billion dollars a month, he increased natural gas electric power and slammed the door shut on illegal alien invaders, drug and people smugglers…all to PROTECT us, and it ALL worked!! Nothing…and I mean nothing Obiden or Obama did, helped America …not a Damn thing… everything they did and are doing, is to make your country a Socialist Nation…an Islamic Nation!!! THE OIL RESERVES GAME… Obama drained your emergency oil reserves down to nothing! Trump restored your emergency reserves …in case of an emergency. Obiden is reducing them, again and again …to help us? How does having no Emergency oil reserve help us? It certainly helps our enemies…a helpless Amerca! Obiden/Obama want to be certain we do not have emergency reserves …when they make their move! Hey Congress The Sun Bay Paper Page 4 December 31, 2021 - January 6, 2022 A New Nation Emerges? With a New World Order? Lead by Ayatollah Hussein Obama! The Right Side Cont. on next pg

The Right Side where’s your Checks and Balances” why is Biden draining our oil reserves…find out for Christ’s Sakes!! He said it reduces the gas price…yea ,by $.17 per gallon,. Wouldn’t it make more sense to have 50 million barrels in reserve? Obama and Obiden promoted The Defund the Police, the release of prisoners, allow riots, looting, pigs in the parks and chaos! Trump …the EXACT opposite! You do not put weak sisters in leadership positions, unless you want to Rule instead of lead …positions that require quick thinking, mental and physical strength. Name just ONE of Obidens staff that you would follow, “into battle”! How about General Milley or John Kerry, or Sec of State Blinken, how about the Transportation Secretary Buttigieg (my favorite), Attorney General Garland, Homeland Security Mayorkas ( a real leader of his men and a real first man though the door…after it’s all over). How about the Secretary of Stupid, Jennifer Granholm, the one who has no idea why gas prices skyrocketed, after Biden stopped production, supply and exploration?! Trump built the strongest Military the world has ever known…Obiden and Obama are destroying the strongest Military the world has ever known! Do you really believe Obidens Build Back Better Bill that INCREASES the size and power of the IRS …is to protect you? If you do…you must believe chickens have lips… I swear! From the State Department official 2019 report on terrorism… “Country Reports on Terrorism 2019, is submitted in compliance with Title 22 of the United States Code, Section 2656f (the “Act”), which requires the Department of State to provide to Congress a full and complete annual report on terrorism for those countries and groups meeting the criteria of the Act”. “The Iranian regime and its proxies continued to plot and commit terrorist attacks on a global scale. In the past, Tehran has spent as much as $700 million per year to support terrorist groups, including Hezbollah and Hamas...” What Freaking President would read that report and then give Freaking Iran, hundreds of Billions in CASH and the Taliban $85 Billion in munitions? There are TWO, Hussein Obama and Joe Obiden…that’s who…isn’t that Aiding and Abetting our Enemy, who wants to kill you?? ‘Come on man!’ How did that help protect America…just wondering? The President of the United States’ number 1 job is to PROTECT THE PEOPLE…THAT’S YOU AND ME…well…what the hell--- are Obiden and his boss, Obama doing? They are systematically DESTROYING AMERICA, for two Presidents to do that is Conspiracy to Commit Treason and Treason!? I know what you’re thinking…oh, my God! Can they do that…yes…they have…with a click! How do we stop it…? After dealing with criminals for several decades as an Agent…when we wanted to stop a crime …we exposed the plot and placed guards at critical locations. The major internet data center is near WDC! Other data stations are spread out. The Government claimed it has taken steps to prevent an Internet take down…but what if the Government leaders are the criminals?? Biden says some really stupid things BUT he also says some very revealing things. He issued a warning to Republicans using a loud and an angry voice, pointing his finger he said, “You Republicans had better watch out in 2022!” He often says, “They told me not to say that” and “I’m not supposed to take questions”, and many more revealing things… you’re not stupid…who’s the “they” he mentions but the Media NEVER questions it…now put them all together! The Dems know that they are going to lose the House and Senate in 2022! They can’t allow that to happen! They are DESPARATE! Who would have believed that they could drum up 10-15 million votes after they learned they were losing by 11 million votes at midnight of election night! Never underestimate your enemy! America is fed-up with the Dems! So whatever they do, whatever it is …it will be before Nov 2022 and it will be BIG, but if we stick together…we can overcome! Drag the President, his staff before a joint session of the House and Senate and call them out, under oath. Demand that Congress request protection at the critical Data Stations and headquarters for the Internet, the 3 Grids, Power Plants! Talk to your relatives in the Military and tell them to stay true to God, Country and their Oaths to protect us and preserve our Constitution! Talk to all your friends and relatives who are in law enforcement and do the same…obey your Oath! If we make it to Nov. 2022…tell your Voting Boards you want Equal representation with equal access to observe up close and personal …all elections… equal Republicans and Democrats… no water main breaks. If counting stops, it stops until both parties return with a rep from each party guarding the polling venue, when vacant!! That’s if we make it to Nov, 2022!

The Sun Bay Paper Page 6 Eric Eikenberg, chief executive officer of the Everglades Foundation, said $660 million for Everglades restoration is “the largest investment in the history of the program.” In addition to restoration efforts, the funding will “create and save jobs, boost our state’s tourism-based economy, and yield tangible benefits for Floridians,” he added. The budget also invests more than $550 million to increase the resiliency of Florida’s coastal and inland communities, and more than $151.7 million to protect prized properties and waters in Florida. This includes $100 million for the Florida Forever program and $51.7 million for infrastructure improvements and natural resource management at Florida’s awardwinning state parks. The budget also allocates $50 million to restore Florida’s world-renowned springs, $100 million for continued stabilization, water treatment, and closure at Piney Point, and $40 million for the alternative water supply grant program to help communities plan for and implement vital conservation, reuse and other alternative water supply projects. Last year, the governor championed the passage of the Resilient Florida Grant Program, which enhanced efforts to protect Florida’s inland waterways, coastlines, shores and coral reefs. The proposed budget builds on this by investing another $550 million. “Florida has serious flooding challenges to tackle but has a Governor who is serious about delivering solutions that can lead the nation on resilience funding and policy,” Noah Valenstein, former Secretary of the Department of Environmental Protection, said. “By working with communities, the Resilient Florida Program will capitalize on environmental investments to reduce flooding and protect Florida’s water resources.” “Coming off yet another active hurricane season, Floridians across the state face the challenges of more frequent flooding and higher seas every day,” Kate Wesner, Florida director of the American Flood Coalition, added. “With another historic investment dedicated to resilience, the funds, coupled with the historic Always Ready legislation signed into law earlier this year, will help build a stronger, better prepared Florida.” Temperince Morgan, executive director of The Nature Conservancy in Florida, lauded the $550 million allocation, adding “a strong commitment to addressing climate change from the public, private, and non-profit sectors is the only way we will protect Floridians from sea-level rise and other impacts affecting our 1,400 miles of coastline and the communities that live along them.” Dr. Jennifer Jurado, chief resilience officer for Broward County, said the funding comes at a critical time “as local governments across our state are increasingly pressed to address the impacts of rising seas and increased flooding.” The budget also prioritizes Florida’s 1,300 miles of coastline, which it says “is critical to our growing economy and quality of life, as millions travel from around the world to visit our worldrenowned beaches.” It allocates $50 million in beach nourishment funding to restore eroded shorelines, $137 million to clean contaminated sites related to petroleum tanks, dry cleaning solvent, hazardous waste, and other contaminants, and $53 million to implement the State Mitigation Plan for the $166 million Volkswagen Clean Air Act settlement. The settlement addresses diesel emission reductions, including funds for electric vehicle infrastructure and electric buses. The budget also allocates $3.8 million to protect the state’s manatee population, and up to $3 million for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to remove pythons from the Everglades, an increase of $2 million over current year funding. The biggest chunk of the environmental budget, more than $1.7 billion, is allocated to help the state’s agricultural industry. And while Florida hasn’t experienced the damage of wildfires like other states have, the budget also allocates $6.7 million for wildfire suppression equipment and $4 million for road and bridge maintenance.

Dear Doctor: I want to lose 15 pounds but have had no luck cutting calories or carbs, or even trying that crazy (IMHO) keto diet where you eat mostly fat. What about that new diet where you only eat during certain hours? How does it work? Dear Reader: We think you're referring to time-restricted eating, which is also called "early time-restricted feeding" or "intermittent fasting." No matter the language, these approaches all boil down to the same basic concept. That is, all of your calorie intake, including meals, snacks and beverages, takes place within a limited period of time. Instead of reducing the calories you take in each day, or limiting the types of food you eat, it's the timeframe in which calories are consumed that is strictly defined. Before we go any further, we'd like to point out that this isn't a weight-loss regimen per se. Initial studies looked into the potential health benefits of the practice, such as blood sugar control. However, in studies done, as well as in anecdotal evidence from everyday participants, it has emerged that weight loss often takes place. Restricted eating is based on a growing body of evidence that humans do best when we live in sync with our circadian rhythms, which are guided by the built-in "body clock" that operates within us on a 24hour cycle. We already know that circadian rhythms influence a number of behavioral and physiological processes. These range from the obvious, such as our sleep/wake cycles, to the unseen, like body temperature, hormone secretion, enzyme function and even the speed at which wounds will heal. So it's not that surprising to discover that nutritional intake would also have a spot on the list. There's no doubt that we've come a long way from the days of our primitive ancestors, when the rigors of hunting, gathering and preparing food, to say nothing of the challenges of storage, strictly limited mealtimes. These days, however, the average American eats from early morning until well into the night. One of the thoughts behind restricted eating is that, over time, this type of behavior wreaks havoc on our circadian cycles, which use hormones and enzymes to prep the body in myriad ways for nutritional intake in the morning and afternoon. Then, during the subsequent fast, these processes rest. By frontloading our food consumption, as our ancestors presumably did, we allow our inner clocks to sync up for optimal operation. In a study in which men with pre-diabetes limited caloric intake to a six-hour period for five weeks, researchers saw a drop in participants' blood pressure and lower insulin levels. There's no single formula for restrictive eating. Some plans suggest an eight-hour window for eating, while others stretch that to 10 hours. The one constant is that during the fasting period, nothing caloric -- and this includes the milk in your morning coffee or that handful of nuts at night -- passes your lips. It also appears that reversing the size of meals -- large breakfast, moderate lunch, light dinner -- helps with hunger management. If you do decide to move forward with a restricted eating plan, please check in with your primary care physician for advice and guidance Eve Glazier, M.D. and Elizabeth Ko, M.D If you have an adult family member who is incapable of caring for themselves due to a physical or mental condition, it may be necessary to establish a legal guardianship for that person. A guardian is basically someone appointed by a judge to make decisions on behalf of an incapacitated person, who is known as the “ward.” Because the ward loses significant legal rights under a guardianship, Florida requires family members and judges to take certain steps before a guardian can be named. One of these steps is for the court to appoint an examining committee of three people. This committee must conduct a “comprehensive examination” of the person under consideration for guardianship. Depending on the circumstances, this must include a physical examination, a mental health examination, and a “functional assessment” of the individual. Court: Examining Committee Failed to Properly Examine Ward In a recent decision, Cook v. Cook, the Florida Fourth District Court of Appeals dug a little deeper into this law, looking at what meets the “comprehensive examination” requirement. In this case, a group of siblings asked a judge in Palm Beach County to appoint a guardian for their brother, who they said had been “living like a recluse” in his condo for several years and was “unable to plan for his affairs or make practical decisions.” The judge appointed the three-member examining committee as required by law. The committee included a primary care doctor, a licensed psychologist, and a layperson. The doctor interviewed the ward, reviewed his file, and determined the ward suffered from “psychosis.” The psychiatrist conducted a similar review and concluded the ward suffered from clinical depression. The layperson said the ward “was in denial” about his mental health. Based on this and other evidence, the judge decided to place the ward in a guardianship. The ward appealed this decision. And by a 2-1 vote, the Fourth District reversed the trial court's ruling after determining the examining committee failed in its duty to conduct a “comprehensive examination.” The two-judge majority pointed to the following problems with how the committee completed its task: ● None of the committee members actually “performed a physical examination” of the ward, nor did they explain why they neglected to conduct such an exam. ● The psychologist only conducted a basic mental health exam of the ward. The psychologist also told the court the ward needed “further evaluation.” But the psychologist never performed such an evaluation. The dissenting judge argued the examining committee did its job properly, and that additional evidence–such as the testimony of the ward's family–was sufficient to justify appointing a guardian. As you can see from this case, the decision to place an incapacitated adult under a guardianship is not a simple one. Even if you are 100 percent convinced a sibling, parent, or other relative can no longer care for themselves, the law still affords that person certain protections that must be respected. So if you are looking to establish a guardianship, you should speak with an experienced Fort Myers estate planning lawyer who can advise and assist you with the process.

The Sun Bay Paper Page 8 December 31, 2021 - January 6, 2022 Letters To The Editor Guest Editorial Guess what? I scored big for Christmas. I got my numberone gift. Actually, 80 million Trump warriors (aka "deplorables") scored big for Christmas. Because we all asked Santa for a Trump comeback. Well, we got more than we hoped for. Because Trump has made perhaps the biggest comeback in history. And he did it far faster than anyone imagined possible. I call it "The Donald Trump Christmas Miracle." But of course, you'd never know it if you read, watch or listen to mainstream media. Trump's amazing comeback has been buried and blacked out just like stories about Hunter Biden's laptop. Let's start with my prediction -- because I feel vindicated. My book "Trump Rules" came out on Nov. 10, 2020 -- one week after Trump lost the election. How's that for bad timing? I was on book tour for the next three months while the media vilified Trump and branded him a liar and sore loser. After Jan. 6, the media claimed his legacy was ruined, his brand destroyed, and he should go to prison as a traitor. My response? I boldly predicted in every interview, "Donald J. Trump is one of the greatest businessmen and political leaders to ever walk this Earth. He is famous for his remarkable comebacks, and I predict this will be his biggest one yet. Trump will shock the world. He will make the greatest comeback ever. And I believe he is the favorite to become president for the second time in 2024." The media laughed at me, mocked me, slandered me. Well, guess what? It's happened. Trump is back, bigger, better and grander than ever before. Let's start with the facts of his political comeback. In poll after poll, Trump is beating President Joe Biden. A recent Rasmussen poll shows Trump's chances at 45% to Biden's 32%, a 13-point landslide in a rematch with Biden. A TIPP poll finds Trump dominating the GOP presidential primary field. Trump leads 60% to 11% over second place, Gov. Ron DeSantis. Trump's old Vice President Mike Pence is in single digits. Know-it-all Trump backstabber Chris Christie is at 1%. AYouGov survey finds Trump is more admired than either Biden or the pope. Imagine, after everything the lying, vicious, fake news media has thrown at Trump, he's more popular than the pope! Don't trust the polls? Ask bettors around the world. At U.K.'s gigantic sportsbook Ladbrokes, where billions of dollars are bet, Trump is now a huge 3-to-1 favorite to beat Biden in the 2024 election. But that's only Trump's remarkable political comeback. His financial comeback is even bigger. Have you heard about that? Of course not. In only one year's time, after losing the election, nonstop slander by the media and the Jan. 6 debacle, Trump is now richer than ever before. Trump's new social media venture turned public company Digital World Acquisition Corp. (DWAC) has tripled his net worth. According to Bloomberg, Trump was worth $2.5 billion before. But he now owns a 58% stake in DWAC. Bloomberg says that stake is worth as much as $4.8 billion. Trump just sold his stake in his Washington, D.C. hotel. The Washington Post reports Trump could profit over $100 million from the transaction. Trump is also selling books like hotcakes. Trump's new book sold 100,000 copies in just 10 days, at $74.99 a copy and $229.99 for signed copies. That means Trump grossed over $10 million in 10 days. Signed copies of Trump's book are reselling on eBay for $1,600. His speaking tour with Bill O'Reilly is selling out sports stadiums and grossing over $2 million per day. Not a bad day's work! Don't forget the best news of all. The two Trump-hating Cuomo brothers are both unemployed and disgraced. Yes, 2021 was Trump's year! Even though you've never heard about any of this in the media, Trump has just made the biggest and fastest comeback in history. In less than one year's time, Trump has risen from the ashes like a phoenix. He is a superhuman miracle. The title of my book perfectly describes this man: "Trump Rules"! What lies ahead? Remember, I'm the national radio and television host who suggested to Trump that he should become speaker of the House in 2022, as a springboard to his presidential victory in 2024. So, I say to all Trump warriors, ………. Stay tuned. Wayne Allyn Root Ed. Note: We respect this author and he has been in our paper often.

LeBeau and his lab in the School of Medicine and Public Health collaborated with researchers at the University of Minnesota and Elasmogen, a biomedical company in Scotland that is developing therapeutic VNARs. The team published its findings in Nature Communications. The anti-SARS-CoV-2 VNARs were isolated from Elasmogen's large synthetic VNAR libraries. One-tenth the size of human antibodies, the shark VNARs can bind to infectious proteins in unique ways that bolster their ability to halt infection. "These small antibody-like proteins can get into nooks and crannies that human antibodies cannot access," says LeBeau. "They can form these very unique geometries. This allows them to recognize structures in proteins that our human antibodies cannot." The researchers tested the shark VNARs against both infectious SARS-CoV-2 and a "pseudotype," a version of the virus that can't replicate in cells. They identified three candidate VNARs from a pool of billions that effectively stopped the virus from infecting human cells. The three shark VNARs were also effective against SARS-CoV-1, which caused the first SARS outbreak in 2003. One VNAR, named 3B4, attached strongly to a groove on the viral spike protein near where the virus binds to human cells and appears to block this attachment process. This groove is very similar among genetically diverse coronaviruses, which even allows 3B4 to effectively neutralize the MERS virus, a distant cousin of the SARS viruses. The ability to bind such conserved regions across diverse coronaviruses makes 3B4 an attractive candidate to fight viruses that have yet to infect people. The 3B4 binding site is also not changed in prominent variations of SARS-CoV-2, such as the delta variant. This research was conducted before the omicron variant was discovered, but initial models suggest the VNAR would remain effective against this new version, LeBeau says. The second-most-powerful shark VNAR, 2C02, seems to lock the spike protein into an inactive form. However, this VNAR's binding site is altered in some SARSCoV-2 variants, which likely decreases its potency. "What is exciting is that these new potential drug molecules against SARS-CoV-2 differ in their mechanism of action compared to other biologics and antibodies targeting this virus," says Caroline Barelle, CEO of Elasmogen. "It is another great example of how Elasmogen can effectively deliver potent therapeutic molecules." Future therapies would likely include a cocktail of multiple shark VNARs to maximize their effectiveness against diverse and mutating viruses. This new class of drug is cheaper and easier to manufacture than human antibodies, and can be delivered into the body through various routes, but has yet to be tested in humans. LeBeau is also studying the ability of shark VNARs to help in the treatment and diagnosis of cancers. Vaccines form the bedrock of protection against SARS-CoV-2 and future coronaviruses. But some people, such as those with compromised immune systems, do not respond as well to vaccination and may benefit from other treatments like antibodies -- which makes developing these treatments an ongoing priority. University of Wisconsin-Madison The Sun Bay Paper Page 10 December 31, 2021 - January 6, 2022 Shark Antibody-Like Proteins Neutralize COVID-19 Virus A Recap: Crime and (No) Punishment The world changed with the first news of a mysterious virus suspected to have originated in a Chinese lab, or wet market, or wherever. An unexpected perfect storm was on the horizon. News of COVID-19 elbowed its way into our consciousness along with a failed impeachment trial in January and February of 2020. Politicians were girding for a Presidential election, and with that, a societal “perfect storm” needed only a lit fuse. The Memorial Day killing of George Floyd became that lit fuse. The hoped-for opportunity for legitimate and peaceful protests was not to be. Legitimate much-needed reform efforts were kicked aside by anarchists and thugs, stealing the stage with violence, looting, and destruction. Let’s connect some dots.... Fear, the most powerful human emotion, gripped many state and local governments. Law enforcement was told to “stand down” in the foolish and futile hope of letting angry emotions burn out. But violence raged for months, and in many communities it continues still. Despite a spiking crime rate, many on the left were inclined to label the violence and destruction as somehow virtuous, and “defund the police” movements gained popularity. Old fashioned tolerance has been radicalized into intolerance and identity politics. And there is a new all-encompassing word to describe it…“wokeness.” People are afraid of speaking out because disagreement or debate isn’t tolerated. For some, differences of opinion are considered personal offenses. Intimidation and fear are incompatible with freedom and make it impossible for philosophical opponents to work together. And we learned another new word – “cancellation.” This new “cancel culture’s” success was nurtured by society’s fear. New ideologies led radicalized leftists to conclude that they know better than some old Whiteguys who founded our country; better than those whose statues adorn our parks; and are certainly better informed than those who’ve written our history books. Rather than working to fix our many flaws, their appetite for chaos would have us start over as a society and country – surely a doomsday choice. Eventually, the joy found in destroying historical relics and statues deteriorated. Attention turned to new destructive exploits. Leftist DAs are displaying an appetite for removing criminal accountability. For example, many jurisdictions no longer enforce shoplifting or loitering statutes. And the habit of catch and release with little or no bail is common, even for serious crimes. These measures seem intoxicating to “woke folk.” Some radicals even support releasing much of the prison population. They believe leniency and compassion will reduce crime. Rather, we see new and ever more bold crimes, including a “smash-and-grab” pandemic and fearless car jackings. Thankfully, the recent Kyle Rittenhouse acquittal was a potential watershed event in this 2-year chain of events. Rather than trying the young man for illegal “vigilantism,” the trial was properly about whether his actions were legal self-defense. Rather than legitimizing the destruction and violence that occurred, the acquittal acknowledged his actions were legal, however ill-advised. The “rule of law” prevailed. Let’s build on this. Who would ever have imagined that Americans would ever be arguing about enforcing law and order? Law enforcement is receding as violence and other crimes increase. I’m frustrated that some see justifiable purpose in the destructiveness and actions of “cancellation.” And I’m saddened by the permanence of so much of the damage. Hopefully, the radical leftist movement to achieve what they’ve labeled as “criminal justice reform” will burn itself out. Let’s bring an end to the time that opposition to lawlessness is labeled “White supremacy.” We should no longer find chatrooms and letters-to-the-editor discussing ways to dodge violence and about where to find safety. Gone should be the time that true crime is falsely labeled as an elite “construct” for preserving White privilege. Petty crime should no longer be accepted as an unavoidable reality of urban living. Let’s think once again about character and not just about skin color. True criminals should no longer be considered unfortunate victims. Let’s bring back responsibility, accountability, and enforced rules of law. Public safety requires rules and stability. Think about the things that keep us safe and secure. How can we have a nation, or culture, and how can we be called a civilization, without them? Begone fear, uncertainty, confusion, and societal division. myslantonthings.com Steve Bakke, Fort Myers Cont. from pg 1 Aaron LeBeau
