Dave DeFonzo, youth activities coordinator at the rec center, explained that for the first time the program is being held onsite. Previously, campers traveled to offisland archery ranges. Me and two counselors Tiffany Cassola and Thomas Downin earned our certifications as Level 1 archery instructors at Martial Arts University in Cape Coral, said DeFonzo. So now, we can run the program right here on the island. Made possible through funding provided by the Sanibel-Captiva Optimist Club and Sanibel-Captiva Kiwanis Club, the rec center has also partnered with the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission, USA Archery and Bass Pro Shops in order to bring the archery program to its summer day camp. According to DeFonzo, sixth through eighth grade-age campers are eligible to participate in the archery program, held every Friday from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. The youngsters are equipped with standard Genesis compound bows and Easton 18-20 aluminum arrows. The shoot at targets is placed 10 yards away. A lot of our campers have had archery experience during teen nights, and they really seemed to enjoy it, DeFonzo said. We thought it might be fun to bring a little bit of that old-fashioned, sleepaway camp-type of activity here to our day camp. During last weeks inaugural archery outing, campers were lectured intensively on the safety first nature of the sport. DeFonzo, Cassola and Downin briefed each participant on the 11 verbal and whistle commands most frequently used in archery: Stance Nock Hook & Gripcontinued on page 44 Dave DeFonzo, center, works with a group of advanced rank archery shooters during the Sanibel Recreation Centers Summer Day Camp last Friday morning Shooters retrieve their arrows from the targets at the archery range Thomas Downin helps a young archer take aim




3 ISLAND SUN JUNE 13, 2014 Looking Back: Postcard Of Randalls City Dock The Captiva Island Historical Society, which has opened its new History Gallery, is focused on presenting the history of Captiva with a series of photos. The History Gallery is accessed through the Captiva Memorial Library, located on Chapin Lane on Captiva. This weeks image is a postcard of Randalls City Dock at the bay end of Palm Avenue (now Andy Rosse Lane), where steamships unloaded passengers and freight. The house in the forefront was Bob Sabatinos residence, built in the 1920s. The two-story building in the background was built in the 1920s as an annex to the Snyder School For Boys, with classrooms downstairs and a central staircase leading up to the dormi tory-type sleeping quarters. In 1935, ownership of the building was transferred from Frank Miles Cleveland to Jesse Miller, who ran it as Mrs. Millers Boarding House with a brothel upstairs. Jay Norwood Ding Darling purchased the building in 1940. He tore off the second floor, because it was infested with bees, and transformed it into the Island Store. photo archives of the Captiva Island Historical Society Join Us This Sunday Morning for Praise and WorshipNew Sanibel Baptist ChurchSo then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 13, 201414 An Inside Look At Wildlife Recovery The CROW Picture Show presents informative anecdotes about the native and migratory wildlife species brought to CROW (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, 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 is on Friday June 20 at 11 a.m. in CROWs Visitor Education Center at 3883 SanibelCaptiva Road, across from The Sanibel School. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for teens, and free for members and children 12 or under. The entry fee also includes access to the Visitor Education Center, which exhibits CROWs efforts to save wildlife through care, education and collaboration.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 13, 201418 Boost In Summer Staffing At Ding DarlingWith the federal budget currently freezing refuge hiring, JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge has brought in temporary staffers through funding from the Ding Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge (DDWS) and other programs. DDWS is funding one new shared intern and a summer teacher. Davis Horton arrived on May 17 as a shared intern who will assist both the refuge and DDWS in the areas of visitors services, education, biology and outreach. A third-year student in environmental science at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, Horton will spend the summer at the refuge through August 24. I have been to the refuge many times, he said. Even when I was a kid, my family would take me through Wildlife Drive to see all of the different animals. Im looking forward to learning the diverse aspects of refuge operations during my term. Hortons background research includes testing duck vision by examining preferences for black versus UV decoys, and studying the effects of water flow on the anatomy of fish living in streams versus fish living in ponds and lakes. Every day is different here at the refuge, and its the variability in my work that I have grown to love the most, he said. One day I may be working with kids in the education center; the next I may be working with biologists doing bird surveys. I never know what to expect. Having so many opportunities has greatly diversified my working experience. Jillian Meek, a helping/field trip teacher in the environmental education department for the Lee County School District, returns this year for her third summer as a STAR (Summer Teachers Assisting Refuges) teacher. The STAR position at Ding Darling is funded by grants from the LAT Foundation and a private family foundation awarded to DDWS. Meek will be assisting with summer programs, teaching classes, and participating with the Sea Monsters exhibit that is stationed for the summer in the free Visitor & Education Center. Another summer refuge staffer comes from the Greening Youth Foundation program. Arthur (Ah-too-wah) Williams joined the refuge staff on May 19 as part of the foundations non-profit program, which, in partnership with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS), provides underserved youth and young adults opportunities to nurture environmental stewardship. I got involved with the program because I wanted to grow my professional connections in environmental education and help in relating environmental problems and education to the public, said Williams, a soon-to-be biology graduate of Presbyterian College in South Carolina. As a biologist with research background, I saw a need to relate scientific information to the community and explain the importance of nature conservation. I love nature and feel that working for the USFWS is a great way to perfect my teaching skills in this area. Williams was one of 15 selected to conduct marine research in the Chesapeake Bay. Most recently, he studied at the University of the West Indies in Barbados. He will work on environmental education, visitors services and special projects during his summer stay at the refuge through mid-August. Three federally funded Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) students begin their full-time summer jobs for the refuge the week of June 16. Justin Love will work in visitors services, Jessica Mathisen in biology, and Mallory Veltman in administration. Our temporary summer staff is so valuable to us not only in providing needed manpower, but also because it brings youthful energy, enthusiasm, and creativity to the refuge team, said Supervisory Refuge Ranger Toni Westland. At the same time, it gives these students and educators an opportunity to learn about the environment and refuge operations. For more information about the refuges internship programs, contact Westland at 239-472-1100 ext. 237.

19 ISLAND SUN JUNE 13, 2014 Birds Eye ViewGolden Orb Weaverby Mark Bird WestallI wrote a few months back that I wouldnt be taking any more trips down the Sanibel River until nesting season for the birds that use the overhanging trees are finished raising their young. The nesting season should be coming to a close and I will soon begin doing the annual clearing of the river for the city. If I do find a nest or two still with chicks, I will avoid that area until the chicks have fledged. But someone called me up the other day and asked if a trip on the river was possible yet. I replied that we could go and make it a scouting run to check on the status of any nests on that section of the river. If we found too many nests still with young, we would have to scrub the trip and head back to the launching site. During my discussion, the wife of the caller asked if there were mangroves on the river and I said, yes. She then asked if the channel was closed in with overhanging trees. I said that the section we would be travelling on was very closed in and we would often feel as though we were canoeing through an underground cave. The wife then became a little nervous and said that she wasnt too crazy about the possibility of spiders getting in her hair. At first I thought maybe she was thinking about the mangrove tree crabs that crawl up the aerial roots of the trees out in the refuge; people always think they are spiders. I told her that there wouldnt be any tree crabs on the mangroves along the river and that we rarely came across any real spiders, but if we did, I would just put up my patented Automatic Web Breaker. The husband asked what that was. I told him that the bow person could take their paddle (I am usually the only one who paddles in my canoe) and place the blade in the bottom of the canoe, holding it in place with their feet and then lean the handle upright against the bow of the canoe. The top of the handle should be adjusted so that it rises just above the bow persons head and I steer the paddle so it breaks the guy wires of one side of the web and the entire web should spring out of the way. I also explained to him that he would not be allowed to touch the paddle with anything but his feet once it was set up. If you hold the handle in your hand, there is a tendency to lean the handle on top of the spider in the web, which will wrap the entire web around the handle and the spider will crawl down into the canoe. Its funny, but they havent called me back to set up the trip yet! But I got to thinking about why I thought up the web breaker in the first place and I remembered how the river was when I first started taking trips down it 36 years ago. We would run into so many spiders and their webs with my customers wanting to abandon ship that I seriously began to think that taking people on the Sanibel River was not a very good tour. There were just too many spiders. The web breaker reduced the number of threatened mutinies on my river tours. The spider that was causing the problem was called the golden orb weaver, or banana spider. It is a big spider. The female (shes the one that makes the big webs) can be four inches from tip to tip. This spider has been known to capture small birds and snakes in its strong webs. They usually only capture flying insects. Of course, their webs are appropriate for their size and can easily stretch from one side of the river to the other. I was told as a young naturalist when I was new to the island that the webs of related spiders in the South Pacific were used as fishing nets by the natives of the islands. I always thought that was an exaggeration until I did some research and discovered that, in reality, the Indo-Pacific natives will roll the orb weavers web up into a ball and throw it into the water. There, it will unfold itself and is used to catch bait fish. Interesting. I know how frightened people can be of these creatures so if I come across one of these large spiders, and I can get the canoe close enough, I will take my index finger and gently stroke one of the big females front legs. More times than not, she will then gently reach out with that leg and stroke my finger. Im sure many of my customers think Im a little weird, but I also hope that they come to understand that these creatures are not the vicious, poison-injecting killers that todays wildlife programs would have them believe. Unfortunately, we dont see these large spiders and their webs that much on the river these days. I wonder why that is? Maybe our civilized society is so busy poisoning all the other bugs on the island that the predators of those bugs are disappearing too. Who knows?

ISLAND SUN JUNE 13, 201422 June Is All About The Varietyby Capt. Matt MitchellConsistent weather for the last few weeks has sure make fishing a whole lot easier. Add to the good weather a midmorning high tide pattern and most anglers, no matter what species they target, have been smiling. I targeted a wide variety of species too this week all with pretty good success. If one was not happening we just moved on to one that was. At first light to mid-morning tarpon continued to be all up and down the beaches. Anywhere from Blind Pass north to Boca Grande during the early morning period of light east winds, its been easy to locate these rolling and free jumping fish. Once spotted simply work out the line/depth contour that these fish are traveling on and set up on anchor and let them come to you. Live crabs, threadfins and pinfish fished under a float all got the attention of these tarpon. When fishing these tarpon on the beach I like to have a couple of live baits out in the spread plus one shotgun rod ready to pitch out in front of moving fish. Be patient and let these fish come to you, constant moving around only puts these fish down deep. Later in the day or by mid afternoon when the sea breeze starts to kick up. I have been targeting these tarpon from the eastern side of the outer barrier islands, basically from Redfish Pass to Cabbage Key. Even in the middle of the day surprisingly there have still been good numbers of rolling fish showing themselves. Fishing during these windier periods for tarpon I like to be in the lee so you can still see the fish and how they are moving around. Afternoon tarpon fishing was much more productive for me on cut bait rather than live bait that got it done in the morning. Same deal here as out on the beaches: set up where you are seeing fish but just soak mullet chunks. Redfish action really started to improve this week with a near-perfect mangrove high water set-up by mid morning. Many of these redfish in the southern sound seem to be out from the mangroves in the sandholes. Look for mullet schools just out from the mangroves and most of the time the redfish will be mixed in with them. Mostly, these redfish only want to eat a cut bait either a cut pinfish or a chunk of mullet or ladyfish. Many are just at or over the maximum of 27 inches. During lower water periods of either incoming or outgoing tides I have been spending my time either in or around the passes. The catch-and-release snook bite right in the passes has been as good as I can remember it for years with lots of big females getting ready to spawn as we get closer to the full moon of June. Big baits mean big fish in the passes so dont be afraid to use that 12-inch grunt, slippery or big squirrel fish if you want to catch your biggest snook of the year. Gear up with heavier tackle when using thse bigger baits to catch and release these fish as unharmed as possible. For these bigger snook I go with 30 pound braid and a 40to 60-pound continued on page 42 Send Us Your Fish TalesThe Island Sun would like to hear from anglers about their catches. Send us details including tackle, bait and weather conditions, date of catch, species and weight, and include photographs with identification.

CROW Case Of The Week: Swallow-Tailed Kite Hatchlingby Patricia MolloyThe swallowtailed kite (Elanoides forficatus) is a black and white beauty. Known for stunning displays of aerial agility, the kite is so iconic that its image is used in the logo of the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail, a 2,000-mile, self-guided highway trail managed by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Kites are my favorite raptors, said Dr. Heather. Late last month, a baby swallow-tailed kite was found on the ground by a local resident. All attempts to locate the birds nest and parents were fruitless, prompting the concerned citizen to contact CROW for further instructions. Upon presentation, the little hatchling was found to be dehydrated and weak. Fortunately, no broken bones were detected. The patient, #1562, was immediately tong-fed a hearty meal and given a comfortable place to rest in a quiet corner of the clinics ICU. A couple of days after arrival, one of the students feeding the kite reported that the young bird was not eating well and was breathing with its mouth open. With wild birds, this behavior can indicate anything from physical illness to mental stress. (After all, wild creatures are unaccustomed to contact with humans.) In my experience, swallow-tailed kites are the most laid-back raptors you will ever have in rehab. They are very laid-back and Ive never known one to be stressed, explained Dr. Heather. With stress being eliminated, the hospital director ordered a quick dose of oxygen and placed the fuzzy patient on Baytril (an antibiotic for veterinary use) to combat a potential respiratory infection. Since then, he is eating normally. Swallow-tailed kites typically arrive in Florida in late February to early March from South America and stay until September. Despite the fact that the Sunshine State sees more of this species than any other location in the country, the populations of these beautiful and graceful raptors is declining; the species is undergoing a housing crisis created by habitat loss from drained wetlands. If you are fortunate enough to see one these magnificent birds, it will most likely be while it is in flight. Kites are constantly on the move, swooping down to pick up a meal (which they eat while flying) or diving down for a quick drink from the surface of a lake or stream. As soon as the fledgling is mature enough to survive on its own, this magnificent raptor with the black and white plumage and deeply forked tail will return to its summer home to gracefully swoop and twist high above the trees.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 13, 201424 Plant SmartYellow Alderby Gerri ReavesYellow alder (Turnera ulmifolia) is a fast-growing perennial that is native to the Caribbean Basin and naturalized in Florida, meaning that it cultivates itself in the wild. This non-woody aromatic shrub is related to the native wildflower piriqueta (Piriqueta caroliniana) and deemed Floridafriendly. Yellow alder is a misnomer, for its not an alder, but it has called several other catchy names, including sundrop and Cuban or beach buttercup. Another of the plants names, ramgoat dashalong a Jamaican slang term for a ladies man refers to the increased virility a male goat feels after eating the leaves. Those leaves have long been used for many purposes in traditional medicine and they show promise in treating the staph infection MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus). Yellow alders clear-yellow, stalk-less flowers are about an inch and a half across with five petals that often overlap. They bloom all year and attract both butterflies and bees. The alternate evergreen leaves are lance-shaped or oblong and two to four inches long, with toothed edges, rounded bases and pointed tips. Usually, they open only in the middle of the day, with new ones appearing daily. Plant yellow alder in full to partial sun. This wildflower is both droughtand salt-tolerant and works well as a groundcover or border. It grows to a height and width of two to three feet and assumes a rounded shape. It might self-sow near the parent plant. Propagate it with cuttings or with seeds in the very small, hairy capsule.

25 ISLAND SUN JUNE 13, 2014 Shell Of The WeekThe Rough Scallop by Jos H. Leal, PhD, The Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum Curator and Director of EducationThis weekly column focuses on species known to occur in or off the barrier islands of Sanibel and Captiva and nearby areas. Today, Ill make one exception and feature a nice-looking species for which there is only one local record in the extensive collection of local shells maintained by The BaileyMatthews National Shell Museum. One record, a half-inch shell collected by the late Dr. Dale V. Stingley on a mangrove root in Clam Bayou, Sanibel in 1950. The species was never found after that. Dr. Stingley was a very keen collector, well-known for his clean and accurate record-keeping, and chances are this is a true occurrence for the species on Sanibel. If that is the case, one wonders why was the species collected once on Sanibel and never again? The Virgin Nerite is a very variable species with all kinds of color patterns that include stripes, dots, lightning-like marks and others. If you have seen this shell here on the island, or know anyone who collected one, please let me know. We need to find out what happen to the local populations of the Virgin Nerite! This Week At The Museum Exhibit Chat: This 10-minute presentation will provide an in-depth look to an exhibit daily at 11 a.m. Live Tank Demonstration: See live mollusks up-close and personal. Watch a fighting conch use its foot for locomotion, spy a lighting whelk slam its trap door shut for protection, or witness scallops zip across the tank with the jet propulsion skills.

Try to be patient as you work things out. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A changing situation can create some complications. But if you apply that sensible Bovine mind to what seems to be a hopeless tangle of confusion, youll soon sort things out. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Creating a new look for your surroundings is fun. Expect to hear mostly positive comments on your efforts, as well as some wellintended suggestions you might want to note. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Maybe youd rather do anything else than what youre stuck with right now. But if you stop complaining, you might see how this could lead to something with real potential. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Even a proud Leo ultimately recovers from hurt feelings. However, a damaged relationship might never heal unless youre willing to spend more time and effort trying to work things out. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) There are lots of changes on the horizon, so be prepared to make some adjustments in your usually fine-tuned life. One change might even impact a personal decision youve been putting off. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Being the dependable person you are could work in your favor for a project that requires both skill and accountability. But check this out carefully. There could be a hidden downside. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A temperamental outburst about a mishandled project causes some fallout. Be sure to couple an apology with an explanation. A new opportunity beckons by weeks end. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Changing horses midstream is usually unwise but sometimes necessary. Examine your options carefully before making a decision. A trusted colleague offers good advice. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) While much of your time is involved with business matters, fun-time opportunities open up by weeks end. Enjoy yourself, but be careful that you dont overspend. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A revelation opens your eyes to what is really going on in the workplace. What you learn could make a difference in your career path. Continue to be alert for more news. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Not wanting to make waves might be the safest way to deal with a difficult situation. But no substantive changes can be made unless you share your assessments with others. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a way of talking to people that makes them want to listen. You could find a successful career in politics. On June 22, 1611, after spending a winter trapped by ice in present-day Hudson Bay in Canada, the starving crew of the Discovery mutinies against its captain, English navigator Henry Hudson, and sets him, his teenage son, and seven supporters adrift in a small, open boat. Hudson and the others were never seen again. On June 20, 1782, Congress adopts the Great Seal of the United States. The front of the seal depicts a bald eagle clutching an olive branch in its right talon and arrows in its left. The eagles beak clutches a banner inscribed, E pluribus unum, a Latin phrase meaning Out of Many One. On June 17, 1885, The Statue of Liberty, a gift of friendship from the people of France to the people of the United States, arrives in New York City in more than 200 packing cases. The last rivet of the disassembled monument was fitted on Oct. 28, 1886. On June 19, 1917, during World War I, Britains King George V orders the British royal family to dispense with the use of German titles and surnames due to strong anti-German feeling within Britain. He changed the surname of his own family from Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, to Windsor. On June 21, 1947, after an interim of seven years during World War II, the first post-war Mille Miglia (Thousand Miles) auto race is held in Brescia, Italy with 155 starters. The race on public roads had been delayed two years as Italys infrastructure had to be rebuilt. On June 16, 1961, President John F. Kennedy agrees to send 900 U.S. troops to train and supervise Vietnamese troops in combat. The number of U.S. personnel rose to 3,200 by the end of 1962 and 16,000 by the time of President Kennedys assassination in November 1963. On June 18, 1983, the space shuttle Challenger is launched on its second mission. Aboard the shuttle was Dr. Sally Ride, the first American woman to travel into space. During the six-day mission, Ride, an astrophysicist from Stanford University, operated the shuttles robot arm, which she had helped design. It was famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright who made the following sage observation: Many wealthy people are little more than janitors of their possessions. According to statisticians, about 200 people a year die while watching -not playing -football. Collective nouns are fascinating, especially when one kind of animal has multiple ones that can be used. Take ducks, for instance: A group of them can be called a flock, a badling, a brace, a plump, a sord or a waddling. If you see them on water you can call them a bunch, a paddling or a raft; and a group of ducks flying together is known variously as a skein, a string or a team. Noted industrialist John D. Rockefeller was the son of a notorious con man, William Avery Rockefeller. It takes about one minute for blood to make a complete circuit of your body. The 1950s TV show The Adventures of Superman starred George Reeves, and for the rest of his short life he was best known for that title role. After his untimely death at the age of 45, he was buried in the same suit he wore as Clark Kent on the show. Those who study such things say that more babies are born after the new moon and the full moon than at any other time of the month. Interestingly, more girls are born after the new moon, and more boys after the full moon. For one week in April of 1964, the top five songs on the Billboard chart were all by The Beatles. That also was the year that the band had a whopping 31 songs on the charts. Failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor. -Truman Capote THIS WEEK IN HISTORY STRANGE BUT TRUE THOUGHT FOR THE DAY FINE ITALIAN CUISINEIL TESORO RISTORANTEOpen 7 days a week 751 Tarpon Bay Road 239.395.4022 Call Ahead Orders239-312-4085or Text-To-Go 239-580-8573website for menu www.loveamongtheflowers.comItalian espresso fresh juice bar & smoothies ice cream pizza sandwiches salads GLUTEN FREE Pizza handmade local art and gifts Among The Flowers Find our menu at:

ISLAND SUN JUNE 13, 201442 From page 22Fish Varietyfluorocarbon leader depending on how clear the water is. All the local passes are holding good numbers of snook right now as well as any rocks, docks or blowdowns you can find both on the beaches and in the passes. One of my favorite places to catch snook this time of year is on the northeastern tip of Cayo Costa along the quarantine rocks and the many blown down stumps that run for almost a mile. Generally the faster moving the current the better the snook bite will be. Both inside and outside the passes the pompano bite has been going off too. Catching 5 to 10 pompano in a few hours has been the normal while working the sandy bottom drop-offs of the channels that run in and out of the passes. I target these fish in 4 to 7 feet of water with pompano jigs so I can drift and cover lots of water. Use Silly Willy jigs and Docs Goofy jigs. Both are designed to catch pompano and work better than even live bait. During the slower moving tides I go with a 1/4oz. jig then will switch to a 3/8oz. jig in the faster moving water. A few little tricks that will catch you more pompano are to watch for them skipping as you motor around these areas and casting another jig right around a hooked fish to get a double hook-up. Regulations on pompano are 11 inch to the fork minimum size and six per person per day. A bonus catch while jigging these pompano this week was a small bonefish caught by an angler out on a charter with my buddy Capt. Darren Covert out of St. James City. Back in the pass fishing for mangrove snapper has been good too with lots of legal fish being caught both on the deeper rock ledges in the passes and on good bottom structure in the sound. Small live pinfish drift-fished on or close to the bottom in Captiva and Redfish passes has resulted in some tasty filets for the last few weeks. Expect to catch lots of gag grouper by-catch while doing this. Remember, gag grouper season is closed until July so you have to let them go. Lighter leader for these snapper is a must have as they have very good eyesight. Rig with a small, light wire circle hook and just enough weight to get your bait to the bottom Variety is the spice of life and June is about as good as it gets for angling options in and around the sound. 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.

Life in a Jar, The Irena Sendler Project by Jack Mayer fits into that category. It tells the true story of Irena Sendler, a Polish Catholic social worker during WWII who knocked on doors in the Warsaw ghetto and asked Jewish mothers to give up their children in order to save them. She saved 2,500 lives. The names of the children were placed in jars and buried under an apple tree in the hopes they could eventually be reunited with their parents. Unfortunately, for the vast majority, that did not happen. Most of the parents died at Treblinka. After the war Sendlers story, as well as those of countless other rescuers, was suppressed in communist Poland and forgotten. She was branded a fascist for her underground activity and the saving of Jews. Sendler lived in obscurity in Warsaw until 1999 when three teenage girls in Kansas, who began a history project about her, ended up elevating her to the status of Polish national hero. The girls wrote a play called Life in a Jar and have since performed it hundreds of times world-wide. They traveled to Poland to meet Sendler and formed lifechanging friendships. Author Jack Mayer heard about the project of the three Kansas schoolgirls. He contacted them and wrote the book to spread the history of Irena Sendler around the world. Life in a Jar is an inspirational story that focuses on Irena Sendlers legacy to teach tolerance, respect and understanding of all people. In 1999 the students found only one Internet reference to Irena Sendler, now there are thousands. There have been over 25 million hits on the web site. The response to Life in a Jar in Poland has been immense, elevating Irena Sendler from an unknown to a national hero and Nobel Peace Prize nominee. Sendlers last words to the Life in a Jar cast when they visited her May 3, 2008 were, You have changed Poland, you have changed the United States, you have changed the world (by bringing the story to light, Poland has seen great changes in Holocaust education, in the perception of the time and have provided a grand hero for their country and the world.) I love you very, very much. Sendler passed way on May 12, 2008, at the age of 98. Now her story is part of history.

Cassola shouted as the first group of five shooters approached the range master line, where archers must stand behind while the range is active. Hot range! all of the campers replied in unison, confirming their understanding of the command. Archery participants must also learn a series of whistle commands, which include two blasts for approaching the range master line, one blast for shooting and three blasts for retrieving their arrows from the target. A series of five (or more) blasts signals an emergency, and all activity on the range must stop. Its a fun and exciting sport, said Emma DeFonzo, who has already achieved a rank of expert shooter in her one year participating in archery. You have to know all about the bows and arrows you cant just walk up and do it. Her father also noted that in order to make the activity more fun for all participants, they create a number of games selecting different colors to target or assigning a numeric value to each circle on the target which results in campers challenging one another to see who can attain a higher rank. All of the kids are really enjoying it, said DeFonzo, who noted that if the program continues to catch on, the rec center may offer it as a team sport in the fall. In fact, weve had a number of adults ask if they can try out the archery range, too. Other activities offered to summer day camp participants include the SanibelCaptiva Optimist Clubs Junior Angler fishing program, skateboarding and razor scooter riding, paddleboarding, horseback riding, golfing, basketball, tennis, swimming, gymnastics, dancing, arts and crafts, field trips, special guests and live entertainment. Among the special activities offered this summer are bus excursions to baseball games in Fort Myers and Tampa, field trips to the Shell Factory & Nature Center, Lion Country Safari, Legoland and Punta Rassa mud flasts, and visits from John Storms Reptile Show, magician Brian Boyd, inflatable water slides and a cardboard box boat race.

The award recognizes small to mid-sized Southwest Florida businesses in the five-county area. His was one of 29 nominations recognizing the work, efforts, accomplishments, trials and tribulations of existing business owners in our five-county market, according to Dan Regelski, executive director of the SBDC during Kirkland was the only Sanibel business owner nominated and placed in the final 10. In 1985 Kirkland began with beach chair, sailboat and bicycle rentals at many of the resorts on Sanibel and Captiva, but the island concierge always wanted the opportunity to hang his own sign independent of resort partnerships. That plan came together in August 1999 when he and his partner Salli (who had become wife two months earlier) bought Island Moped, a bike and scooter rental business, now known as Billys Rentals. We made some major changes right away in the daily operations, quality and selection of equipment and customer service. The location gave me a chance to offer my style of business to the residents of Sanibel, not just our visitors. I wanted everyone to know how much the islands mean to me, and it allowed me to become more involved in the community, he said. Five years later, the Kirklands saw the need for a bike shop, as the Bike Route was closing after many years on the island. The challenge, they knew, would be to find another income source to maintain and staff a bike store in such a small community. Kirkland was intrigued with the Segway, a new 2-wheeled self-balancing personal transport device, and he formed the plan to add a Segway tour business. After a long challenge and many city council and planning commission debates, a permit was issued to conduct Segway tours on the island. Tourists, local visitors and residents have all enjoyed learning about our island paradise while on a Segway, without realizing they also assure that local bike sales and repairs and job security continues on our island, commented Kirkland. Two years ago, the thriving bike shop, just across the street from Billys Rentals, allowed the Kirklands to purchase the building that houses the shop and rental unit in front. With the growth of the bike rentals, bike sales and the Segway, the Kirklands identified a need for warehouse space off-island for a repair and storage area. They purchased a warehouse and remodeled it to fill their needs. Currently it houses three mechanic stations for bike, scooter and Segway repairs, storage for rental fleet and new bikes, and a place for staff to meet and ride-share to Sanibel with company trucks. Kirkland also supplies local resorts with bikes and equipment, and the storage allows him to volume purchase for upcoming seasons. Over the years, Sam Bailey and Kirkland developed a relationship over their common love of Sanibel and community giving. When Bailey expressed the wish that Billy would open a bike rental in Baileys Shopping Center, a seed was planted that has grown into the Kirklands newest venture. Billys at Baileys just opened in the empty suite next to the Shell gas station. Kirkland reconfigured d the space, reminiscent of his warehouse design, to hold bicycles, beach chairs and umbrellas, stand up paddleboards and related retail items. Many of my customers will be happy to learn that they will be able to rent closer to Ding Darling (refuge) and the beaches and perhaps avoid the Periwinkle traffic. We have partnered with Mark Melacon of YOLO Board Adventures, another local resident and business owner, that shares my business style, Kirkland said. If we can assist another entrepreneur to reach goals and enjoy success, offer stability and fun to our family of employees, and financially afford to remain residents of this great community, then we really are living up to our entrepreneurial dream, he added. Billy Kirkland shows off the certificate of nomination from the Florida Small Business Development Center for his business, Billys Concession Consulting, Inc. Kirkland is pictured at Baileys Shopping Center, where he recently opened another bicycle rental location.


ISLAND SUN JUNE 13, 201446 Miracle Holds First-Place Lead In Final Week Of Seasons First-Halfby Ed FrankClinging to a 1-game lead entering the final week of the seasons first-half, Fort Myers Miracle baseball was poised to repeat as South Division Champion of the Florida State League just as it did last season. Winning a division championship two years in a row in the tough FSL will garner accolades for Miracle Manager Doug Mientkiewicz who is in just his second year of managing. Through Monday of this week, the Miracle held a 1-game lead over the St. Lucie Mets with just six games remaining, all at home in Hammond Stadium. Division championship or not, it is likely that several key players on the Miracle squad will be promoted to Double A New Britain when the seasons first-half ends next Wednesday. But thats what Minor League baseball is all about developing young players for higher level baseball. The Miracle will have four players in the 53d Florida State League All-Star game this Saturday in Bradenton: pitchers Jose Berrios, David Hurlbut and Brett Lee along with outfielder Adam Brett Walker. Berrios, through Monday, was 5-2 with an excellent 2.34 ERA. He was a firstround draft selection by the Minnesota Twins in 2012. Hurlbut, drafted by the Twins in 2011, started the season as a reliever but moved into the starting rotation in April. He has a 2.16 ERA in 50 innings pitched. Lee is 5-1 for the season with a low 2.36 ERA. He also was drafted by the Twins in 2011. Walker, the only Miracle position player to make the All-Star squad, leads the FSL with 14 home runs and 50 RBIs. A third-round pick by the Twins in 2012, he played baseball for Jacksonville University. The Miracle will conclude the first-half of the season with a three-game series this Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday against Charlotte followed by three home games next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday against Bradenton. The All-Star break is this weekend. Twins Sign First-Round Pick; Nick Gordon Could Play Here Before Long Just four days after being drafted as the fifth overall pick in the 2014 Major League Baseball Draft, shortstop Nick Gordon agreed to a $3.8 million signing bonus and will report to the Twins rookie-level Elizabethton team when the season opens June 19. The 18-year-old Gordon out of Olympia High School in Orlando, was ranked as the fifth best prospect in the draft and reportedly has the best infield arm among all draft prospects. Gordon hit .494 with 10 doubles, two triples, five home runs, 27 RBIs and 13 stolen bases in 99 plate appearances this year as a high school senior. He is the son of former Big League Pitcher Tom Flash Gordon and the brother of Los Angeles Dodgers infielder Dee Gordon. His father pitched parts of 21 seasons in the Major Leagues and was a three-time All-Star. If the teenage Gordon lives up to his expected potential, he could be playing High A baseball for the Miracle before long. Florida Tarpons Home This Sunday Against Missouri The Florida Tarpons of the Ultimate Indoor Football League will host the Missouri Voodoo Sunday at Germain Arena. Kickoff is 5:30 p.m. The Tarpons are defending league champions. Last week they resigned veteran quarterback Chris Wallace who led the team to the championship last season.

47 ISLAND SUN JUNE 13, 2014School Smartby Shelley M. Greggs, NCSPDear Shelley, My daughter is moving up to middle school in the fall. She and a couple of her friends who are all very bright students are excited about going to middle school but have also expressed some nervousness. I dont really want to give her a pep talk on this, since she is beginning to tune out standard parent lectures. What other ideas do you have for me to help her cope with this big move? Kari F., Fort Myers Kari,I think the anxiety you are seeing in your daughter and her friends is quite typical as they approach this big transition in their lives. As students move from elementary to middle school, they leave a whole group of students and teachers theyve been with, often for their entire school experience and with whom they are very familiar and have developed a comfort level. In middle school, theyll be mixed in with students from the other elementary schools, new teachers, a new building and more, and they have fears about fitting in, having friends, being different and bullying, among other concerns.Since you have mentioned that your daughter and her friends are good students, you may want to select a bibliotherapy type of approach to address some of their concerns. Bibliotherapy is the use of reading materials for help in solving personal problems per So, in other words, using books to help the reader gain personal insights and perspective. Melissa Turner, a former reading teacher and curriculum administrator from Kentucky, has suggested the following six books to help students learn about the importance of individual differences. These books display differences, share similarities and contemplate changes at the preteen level and help kids understand its OK to be different, said Turner. These books highlight the individuals different qualities and how those qualities make them who they are, and not to judge others based on looks.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 13, 201450 Superior InteriorsCreative Combinations by Marcia FeeneyWant to spark up a humdrum room in your home? Then I suggest you consider adding a lively and vibrant print fabric to your rooms overall design. Focusing on your window treatments is a wonderful way to add a bit of drama and pizzazz into your decorating plan. You can create a great impact by using a print fabric at your windows. Prints can be used in a variety of creative ways. If your home is a bit more contemporarily styled, incorporating an impressionist print in a cornice, or a Roman Shade, would definitely revitalize your rooms atmosphere. If your style is more traditional, side panels, a traversing drapery, billowing balloon shade or swag and jabot treatment might just be your perfect choice. Mixing and matching prints and colors can bring even more vitality into any room. Often tricky for the untrained eye to visualize multiple combinations used in harmony, a professional decorator can help you make wise and long lasting design decisions. Marcia Feeney is an interior designer on Sanibel/Captiva Islands. She can be reached at Insurance Tip Time To Be Preparedby Angela Larson RoehlAs the Gulf waters heat up, the hurricane season begins and it is now a crucial time for you and your family to prepare in case a hurricane threatens our area. Here are some basic tips. You should replenish your emergency kit with the following: One gallon of water per person, per day for at least three days Three days worth of non-perishable food Flashlight First Aid kit Manual can opener Access pass for re-entry onto the island You should also include prescription medications, toiletries, cash, pet food and extra water for your pets, and dont forget to include copies of important documents and phone numbers. Should your home suffer damage from a hurricane, you should contact your insurance agent or carrier to report the damage as soon as possible. You should then take steps to mitigate further damage from occurring by having water extracted from floors, placing a tarp on a damaged roof, etc. I would also suggest you take photos of the damage and keep all receipts to show to the insurance adjuster for reimbursement consideration. Loss Of Use coverage provides protection when your home can not be lived in due to a covered peril loss. You should contact your insurance agent to review your policys coverage limit for Loss Of Use, before a loss happens. Hopefully, we will have a very quiet hurricane season. Angela Larson Roehl is a local Sanibel-Captiva insurance agent with over 20 years of insurance experience.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 13, 201452 The client sat across from me in the conference room. I dont want to rule from the grave, he began. What do you mean by that? I asked. Just what I said, he replied. When Im gone I want the kids to get everything outright with no strings attached. That sounds good, I said. When your children die do you care if they leave the inheritance that you left to them to their children or to their spouse? I want them to leave it to their children of course. What if they die first and their spouse remarries? Then the money could end up outside of my family! Yes, true. But if you leave it to your children outright and their will says everything goes to their spouse, as most wills do, then thats whats likely to happen. I never thought about that, he said. And wouldnt you want to protect the inheritance that you leave your children in case any of them get divorced? I asked. Yes. And if any of your children have any creditor issues, like deficiency judgments from an upside-down mortgage that was foreclosed, you wouldnt want a bank to find out about their inheritance and go after it would you? Obviously not. Didnt you say that one of your children your daughter that owns that software business is actually a lot wealthier than you are? Yes she has a lot of money. If you left her inheritance outright to her with no strings attached then you might exacerbate her estate tax problem. If you left it in a continuing trust, on the other hand, you could protect it from any creditors and predators as well as divorcing spouses, plus it can be outside of her estate for estate tax purposes. But I dont want her to have to go to a bank or trust department and beg for her money, he exclaimed. She wouldnt have to, I explained. You could name each of your children to be the trustee of their own continuing trust share. Your children could decide how their share is invested, they can distribute the income to themselves, or to their children or even their grandchildren one day. You could even let them decide who they leave it to in their own will. But what if I want their inheritance to one day go to their own children? Then you can have me draft their trust share provisions so thats what is supposed to happen. This is all very flexible. You have me build what are called testamentary trusts inside of your own revocable living trust. The testamentary trusts do not get funded with your own trust assets until after you pass away. But the whole structure is built inside of your own trust. Are there any tax problems? Not really. IRA and 401(k) assets might pose certain problems that we would need to plan around since those have an income tax element when they are distributed. But all of your other assets would work just fine. What if one of my children wants to withdraw money from their trust share to buy a house or build an office building? Can they withdraw the money to do so? We could put in a trust provision that would allow them to do so, yes, I answered. But the better thing for them to do would be to have their trust share buy the house or build the office building. That way the asset remains protected under the trust umbrella. But what if they wanted to later sell the house or building? Your child could do that too, I said. Remember that as trustee they control the trust investments and can buy and sell as they please. Frankly it sounds too good to be true. my client said. I always thought by creating trusts for my kids in my estate plan that Id be ruling from the grave. Not really. This isnt ruling from the grave so much as its creating opportunities that otherwise wouldnt exist. Your children cant create their own trusts that would have these features in them. Only someone else can create a trust that would have these asset protection and favorable tax elements. And the parent is the logical person to create it in their own estate plan. You learn something new every day, he said. Craig R. Hersch. Learn more at Will PowerRuling From The Grave Or Protecting The Inheritance?by Craig R.

Or you may want just the two of you to enjoy some shared reading this summer and set some reading times and goals for both of you to read and discuss. If your daughter is not interested in joint participation with her reading, you might suggest that she develop a reading blog online or just write about her reactions to each book in a reading journal. She could also express her reaction to the books through art, music, poetry or dance. The important thing is for your daughter to react and express her thoughts on what she has read and relate her thoughts meaningfully for her own concerns.

53 ISLAND SUN JUNE 13, 2014 Rotary Happenings submitted by Shirley JewellJust in case some of you are anxiously awaiting the results of the Beer Selling ThrowDown between the Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club and the Sanibel Kiwanis Club at Sam Baileys Islands Night at Hammond Stadium, you will have to wait a little longer. The results had not been tabulated by Marty Harrity yet. It was a great evening of fun and a lot of trash-talking between the two clubs regarding who would win the coveted title of Sam Baileys Islands Night Beer Selling Champion 2014. It looks like a dead heat. At the end of the evening each club had tapped the same number of kegs so we shall have to wait till the money is counted to verify results of this challenge. EDITORs NOTE: The result is on Page 1 of this weeks Island Sun. Thanks to everyone that stopped by the Rotary Beer Garden and bought a beer; we lift a glass of good cheer to all of you and hope to see you at the Sanibel 4th of July parade. During the summer, weekly meeting attendance goes down quite a bit but that really doesnt affect the quality of our speaker program. In fact, this sometime is the only time we can get certain speakers because they have extremely busy schedules October through May. This week we welcomed to our speaker podium Lee County School Board member Mary Fischer, District 1. Although the school board is hard at work all year, there is a little breathing time during summer to go out and speak to clubs like ours. Although we have a number of club members with children still in the Lee County School System, the majority of our members are somewhat removed from thinking about the important topic of education for our local youth. Fischer wanted to start her presentation with an upbeat video prepared by the school district. The music accompanying the video was Happy by Pharrel Williams. The video showed the positive energy that can and should be part of a learning environment. One aspect of the video Fischer wanted to point out was the diversity of the student population in Lee County. With an enrollment of 80,484 the highest stats: 39,000 white, 23,491 hispanic, and 11,902 black. For the majority students their first language is not English. It takes around two years for them to learn English and around seven years to have full command of the language. One of the problems here is that out of the 4,940 teachers in our school system, a minuscule percentage can effectively speak another language. This causes an enormous challenge for students and teachers alike. Past recruitment of bilingual teachers has not been as successful as hoped for and new programs and incentives are being looked at. The number of schools within Lee County is 116 with a breakdown of 44 elementary, 5 K-8, 16 middle, 13 high, 17 special centers, and 22 charters. The diversity in student population is also connected with an underlying economic disparity within the district. Although not necessarily the main cause of educational success or failure, economic disparity can cause problems for some students. Going to bed worrying about your next meal or if you even have a safe place to live does impede the learning process. Drugs are still a concern in Lee County. In many cases drug usage by parents create problems in all areas of life for students, sometimes beginning at birth. The challenge here is how to succeed in educating all students. Testing tells some of the story but not the entire story. How children learn and the most effective ways to teach are constantly being looked at and tweaked. This is an ongoing challenge and if you have ideas on this topic, contact Mary Fischer at The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club meets at 7 a.m. every Friday at The Dunes Golf and Tennis Club, 949 Sand Castle Road.

ISLAND SUN JUNE 13, 201454 deaRPharmacistStrangely, Acid May Ease The Burn by Suzy Cohen, RPhDear Pharmacist: Youve said that if you have twitches, leg cramps, spasms or heart arrhythmias that you could be deficient in acid. What does this mean? I am taking an acid pill myself for reflux. LB, Las Vegas, Nevada Youre not taking an acid pill, youre taking an acid-blocking pill for reflux. Those drugs are suppressing acid so you dont get reflux. But this is important to know. If you run low on stomach acid, you will experience those symptoms above due to your inability to extract minerals from your foods. You see, stomach acid is necessary to get minerals and nutrients out of your food, and into your cells. Acid-blocking drugs inhibit that process, causing undigested food globules to pass through your stomach and then, microscopic proteins leak into your blood stream. It could launch an auto-immune attack, so having sufficient stomach acid is important to your entire digestive tract. Im not against acid blocking drugs. Thank goodness we have them for when those spicy buffalo wings revisit us at 1 am. Controlling a genuine problem is fine with me, but indiscriminate consumption of acid blockers (sold without prescription in the United States) is not a good idea. Understand, stomach acid is not bad, its only bad if its produced in excess. Did you know that you will experience symptoms of heartburn if you make too much acid, but also if you are deficient? Weird but true. Healthy amounts of stomach acid keep the tiny trap door shut between your stomach and esophagus. This sphincter is pH sensitive and in a healthy person, it stays shut because of the natural production of acid in the stomach. When you reduce stomach acid, you then have insufficient amounts, and your stomach pH increases and this causes the trap door to swing open, causing heartburn. Thats why some people who take a digestive acid supplement (like betaine) sometimes feel better. Small amounts of healthy digestive acids keep the trap door shut, and the acid where it should be (down in your stomach) as opposed to your throat. The signs of low acid (termed hypochlorhydria) include heartburn! Surprised? Its true. Also, you see irritable bowel, belching, cramps, food sensitivities, rheumatoid, Hashimotos thyroiditis, gallbladder disease, osteoporosis, pancreatitis, yeast infections and rosacea. You will certainly have chronic fatigue because acid is needed to give you minerals which then participate in the production of both thyroid and adrenal hormones. No doubt, a little betaine can breathe life into some tired people (but get your doctors approval even though this is over the counter). I dont know whats right for you. Digestive acids are sold at health food stores by names such as betaine hydrochloride, betaine with pepsin or trimethylglycine. Begin supplementation by titrating your dosage upward based on symptom relief. Take acid supplements during your meal, or right after and space them apart by 5 minutes if you take more than one pill. Ask a knowledgeable practitioner if acid supplements are right for you and have your zonulin and gastrin levels tested. This information is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose your condition.

Dear Mom & Me, We are retired and most of our friends are either retired or soon to be retired. When we get together, health problems, unfortunately, always seem to be the topic of choice. Now it seems that sleep apnea is the favorite topic. I had never heard about it, so I was very interested. Several weeks later, my husband went to his doctor for a physical and when he came home, the first thing he said was, Guess what the doctor said that I might have? Sleep apnea. What is happening? Is this the new favorite ailment and all of the doctors are getting on the bandwagon? Maxine Dear Maxine, It could be a number of things; you are more aware of the diagnosis, you are socializing with groups of individuals in which this diagnosis is more common; or there is a change in technology. Information or payment sources and increasing awareness and the number of diagnosed cases it is hard to know. Pryce Dear Maxine, Many older people, including myself, have disturbed sleeping patterns. Doctors are reluctant to order sleeping pills for the long term and as a result of research they have found that there is a definite reason why some people wake up so many times while sleeping, and it causes great concern. Many people respond favorably to new available treatments, and they feel so much better after a pleasant nights sleep.

Judi Durant, director of Visitor Services for Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau, spoke at the June meeting of Continental Womens Club. She said that the beaches of Sanibel and Fort Myers are what attract close to five million visitors a year to our area. J.N. Ding Darling and BIG ARTS along with shopping, dining out and golf are also big attractions. She said that visitors like our weather, along with sightings of manatees, dolphins, birds and even alligators. Internationally, the top three markets are Germany, Canada and the UK. Domestically, visitors from Chicago, New York and Indianapolis top the list. This winter the beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel hosted approximately 1.4 million visitors. Tourism has a $2.8 billion economic impact on Lee County and provides nearly 53,000 jobs to the citizens of Lee County. Durant said, Visitors frequent local restaurants and retail stores, which supports the growth of our businesses. They stay at local hotels and other accommodations, use local transportation and visit many attractions. All these dollars support Lee County and taxpayers by keeping our economy sound. Visitor expenditures support beach renourishment, park development, marketing for attractions and more amenities that we, as locals, enjoy. Lee County had 4.8 million visitors in 2013 and that number keeps growing. Traffic during season is always a concern. Durant said, The VCB works with transportation boards, local chambers of commerce, and other groups in order to continued on page 56 Judi Durant, left, with Continental Womens Club President Linda Esbjorn


55 ISLAND SUN JUNE 13, 2014 First Aid Course Offered At Sanibel Recreation CenterThe American Red Cross Community CPR/AED/First Aid course will be held Saturday, June 14 from 12 to 5 p.m. at the Sanibel Recreation Center. The American Red Cross Community CPR/AED/First Aid course provides participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to sustain life and minimize the consequences of injury or sudden illness until advanced medical help arrives. Upon successful completion of this course, participants will hold an adult, infant, child CPR/ AED/First Aid certification valid for two years. The cost of the course is $70 for members and $87.50 for non-members and includes all materials. Skills acquired in this course cannot be applied to a lifeguarding certification as this course certifies participants in rescue skills for lay responders, not professional rescuers. For more information contact Tasha Maddix, aquatics manager at Tasha.maddix@ or call the Sanibel Recreation Center at 472-0345. The Sanibel Recreation Center is located at 3880 Sanibel-Captiva Road. Daily, weekly, semi-annual and annual memberships are available. For more information, visit Eden Energy MedicineProtect Your Eyes And Eyesight With EEMby Karen L. Semmelman, Certified EEM, JD, AAML Do you do daily eye exercises? Do you really pay much attention to your eyesight unless you have an eye issue or you attend your annual or bi-annual eye exam? No? Why not? We realize the importance of exercise for our body and mind but the windows to our world get neglected. Yet, historically in Japan, school students were encouraged to take breaks throughout the day to palm their eyes to provide renewed vigor, rest and oxygen to these precious resources After all, what would life be like without our ability to see the aqua water or gorgeous wildlife with which we are surrounded? For the next several columns, techniques to improve and balance your eyesight, strengthen your eyes and enhance your vision are reviewed. A senior faculty member, age 70, was told she needed a cataract operation and after doing the daily eye exercises for three months, two or three times each day, the eye doctor told her the cataracts were gone! However, like any exercise, it takes time, commitment and a routine to optimize the energetic flow for your eyes to function at their best; and there is no question that stress, genetics, age, overall health and emotions have an influence as well. Here is a teaser: Palm your eyes while still in bed. This is the exercise done in Japan as noted earlier. Rub both hands together and then shake them. Place the cupped palms over the eyes (forming a dome over the eyeball but not touching it). Place your thumbs on the temples (Triple Warmer neurovascular point so it helps settle our Commander of Energies), while crossing your baby fingers over the third eye (the area between your eyebrows). Place your fingers at the hairline (which is the location of the Liver Neurovasculars for the liver meridian) and hold for about three minutes. This balances the brain circuits that receive visual information. Many other exercises will be covered in upcoming weeks and we will address eye exercises for specific conditions. Enjoy the journey and the energetic shifts. Next weeks topic is Learn the Daily Eye Exercises to Support the Eyes. If you have a questions, email 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.
